Kiki: [Sniffing] Think it might be both.
Dillon: All that waiting at the Detroit station only to catch a bus right back to Port Charles.
Kiki: Yeah, I am so over eating out of vending machines.
Dillon: Yeah. I feel like my stomach is corroding inside. [Chuckles]
Kiki: Hey, at least we made it home, finally.
Dillon: We should celebrate, right? I mean, hot showers, comfy beds. We could celebrate like we did on New Year's Eve.
Kiki: Ooh, my breath -- ugh. [Chuckles] I just want to brush my teeth for like an hour.
Dillon: I will brave it if you will.
Kiki: I don't even know if we're home alone. [Chuckles] Uh, Franco, are you home?
Franco: You know I'm doing my own little investigation into Tom Baker's death, and where better to start the investigation than where the guy actually died?
Scott: Yeah, well, why don't you, uh, just leave it to the professionals?
Franco: The police?
Franco: Are you delusional? Any time there's a crime in Port Charles, I'm the top of the suspect list.
Scott: Yeah well, you know, far be it from me to question...
Franco: And I get it -- because of my past. And plenty of people did see me attack Tom Baker at GH.
Scott: Yeah. You do have a good motive, dating all the way back to when this Baker character raped Elizabeth.
Franco: Yeah, thanks for helping to build a case against me, pops. And then of course, there's the murder weapon -- the knife.
Scott: Oh, yeah. It's a special knife, used by, um, artists. You happen to be an artist. That's a coincidence, huh?
Franco: Yeah, what a coincidence. Any idea when the police are gonna get the fingerprint test results back?
Scott: Any minute now. The million dollar question, though, is are they going to find your prints on the murder weapon? Hmm?
Laura: Elizabeth? Hey, did you happen to get a look at those pictures that Kevin and I posted on Facebook?
Elizabeth: No, not yet.
Laura: Oh, okay. Well, your kids are really good little ice skaters.
Laura: Yeah, we had a really good time.
Elizabeth: Did you already drop them off with the sitter?
Laura: I did. I had to, because I had to take Kevin into the ER for a twisted ankle.
Elizabeth: What happened?
Laura: Oh, don't worry, it's okay. He's fine, really. Well, except for maybe a little bit of a bruised ego.
Laura: Oh. [Chuckles] He was, um, showing off for my grandsons. [Chuckling] I know. And he ended up totally wiping out on the ice! And then Aiden thought it was hilarious.
Elizabeth: Oh, geez.
Laura: I know! [Laughs] Anyways, he's fine. He's back in his office. He's got an ankle brace on.
Elizabeth: Well, thank you for taking them anyway. I'm glad Kevin's not too hurt.
Elizabeth: Yeah, me too, yeah. And as much as the boys seemed to love watching Kevin clown around, they could not stop talking about Franco.
Franco: Okay, yes, I -- I do own a knife that's exactly like the murder weapon. And, yes, it is missing. But that doesn't mean that Tom Baker didn't take it from my studio. All right, let's say the knife is mine, and my prints are all over it. That doesn't mean I'm guilty.
Scott: [Inhales deeply]
Franco: You believe me, right?
Curtis: So, let me get this straight. Rudge has a boss, and that boss is a woman?
Buzz: That's what I said.
Jason: Did you get her name?
Buzz: No, no clue.
Curtis: Did you see what this woman looked like?
Buzz: [Sighs] No, I'm sorry. I wish I could help you out. I didn't see her. I just heard her voice. I tell you one thing -- that woman meant business.
Curtis: So, you're sure it was a woman?
Buzz: She didn't say much, but yeah, I know a woman's voice when I hear it.
Jason: Okay, what did she say?
Buzz: She said, "Kill the homeless loser who planted the bomb."
Rudge: Afternoon tea -- I brought some cookies. Thought that might be a nice surprise. [Clears throat] I, uh, unfortunately have some bad news. I haven't been able to locate the homeless man who planted the bomb in Julian's car.
[Woman's fingers angrily tapping]
Alexis: Where are they?!
Julian: Hello to you, too. Where's what?
Alexis: I had two bottles of vodka in there. I had another one in there.
Julian: Oh, relax.
Alexis: Where are they?!
Julian: They're all right here. [Sighs] Not that they're gonna do you much good.
Alexis: You bastard.
Julian: I emptied the house of every drop of liquor, including that bottle you hid in the laundry room you thought nobody would find.
Alexis: You had no right!
Julian: Well, drastic times call for drastic measures, Alexis. I'm trying to stop you from killing yourself or anyone else.
Kiki: All right, turns out Franco's not home after all, so I guess we are by ourselves.
Dillon: Okay. Well, I can just go home. I mean, I can clean up there.
Kiki: You know what sounds good? A bath in disinfectant, followed by a hot bleach shower.
Dillon: [Sighs] And food, please. I mean, I would love to eat something that's not wrapped in a plastic bag.
Kiki: I am so hungry. [Chuckles] But first thing's first -- shower, then food. Lots and lots of food.
Dillon: Lots of food. I mean, we could eat together. Unless that's pushing it too fast. We did kind of get a do-over when we realized we were leaving town for the same reasons.
Kiki: Right, because we couldn't stand the thought of running into each other, because we couldn't be together.
Dillon: Yep, and then you kissed me. Did that change anything for you?
Buzz: Okay. Are we done here? I really don't like to stay in one place too long. It gives Rudge a chance to find me. Maybe you can give me a special blessing, Father.
Curtis: Just as soon as we ask you a few more questions, okay? [Sighs] So... when and where were you when you heard the woman's voice?
Buzz: I told you -- Rudge's pawn shop.
Jason: Do us a favor. Just take us through this one more time, if you don't mind.
Curtis: And spare no detail.
Buzz: All right, on the day after that car exploded, I -- I realized that Rudge had lied to me. It wasn't a GPS tracker he paid me to put in that car. It was a bomb. Innocent kid was killed. Not just any kid. It was Sonny Corinthos' kid. I mean, I knew my life was basically over, right? I wanted answers, so I went to the pawn shop to confront Rudge. That's when I heard the boss lady tell Rudge to kill me.
Jason: So they didn't see you in the pawn shop?
Buzz: No, otherwise I'd be dead.
Curtis: We happen to know that that pawn shop is under surveillance pretty much 24 hours, so how were you able to get in and out without being noticed?
Buzz: No, I can't. I've said too much.
Alexis: Who the hell do you think you are -- my keeper?
Julian: No, Alexis. I'm trying to save you! Now, you ran me over because you were drunk. I'm just trying to stop you from doing any more damage, especially yourself. I'm sorry, but I love you way too much to watch you destroy yourself like this. And at the rate you're going, Alexis, you're either going to drink yourself to death or you're gonna have another accident. Now, have you thought about that? Have you thought about how you would feel if you actually killed some innocent stranger?
Alexis: [Gasps] Get off of me.
Tom: Hey, hey! What's the big deal? [Chuckles] You were nice to me the last time we met.
Alexis: I -- I had too much to drink that night.
Tom: [Chuckles] Well, you're a lot drunker this time. Think of it this way. You're so wasted, you probably won't feel a thing.
Alexis: Oh, God.
Tom: And you won't remember it.
Alexis: [Gasps] Oh, my God.
Julian: What's wrong?
Franco: Tell me that you believe I didn't do it.
Scott: Well, we're talking about a murder rap here. The pieces are starting to fit together. The police are going to build a case, and they are going to arrest you.
Franco: Oh, my, you think I did it, don't you?
Scott: No, I don't! I'm just saying that, you know, what we would need here -- is an alibi. How about that? Where were you the night of the murder? People can back up that you were there. Then we're -- we're somewhere.
Franco: Really, you -- you -- you need an alibi?
Scott: I do.
Franco: You can't just take me at my word? You can't give me your vote of confidence unless I offer you proof that I'm innocent?
Scott: Well, it's like the -- the chicken and the egg -- you know, which came first? What I need from you is for you to tell me what you were doing that night!
Elizabeth: Yes, the boys have grown very fond of Franco. Speaking of kids -- I hear you have a new granddaughter!
Laura: Oh, yes. Yeah, difficult situation, but Charlotte is adorable.
Elizabeth: I actually met her before I knew, but now that I do, I can totally see the resemblance to both you and Lulu.
Laura: Me, too.
Elizabeth: I'm sure Lulu and Dante can't wait to have her home with them.
Laura: Yeah, as far as Lulu's concerned, that, uh, custody hearing can't happen soon enough.
Elizabeth: Good luck with that. If there's anything I can do, will you please let me know?
Laura: Thank you, I will.
Elizabeth: And thank you again for taking my boys skating.
Laura: Yeah. Elizabeth?
Laura: I don't want to pry, honey, but I... I'm a little concerned.
Laura: Well, your boys seem absolutely convinced that Franco's going to be a big part of their lives, and I just don't get the feeling from you that you feel the same way about that. Am I right?
Alexis: Well, you got a lot of nerve asking me that. You know, you tried to kill me, and now you're trying to control my life? I am done putting up with it! I'm done. I'm out of here.
Julian: What are you doing? You calling a car service?
Alexis: You think I'm gonna stay here and let you stage a one-man intervention? You of all people don't get to do that! I'm leaving, and you're not gonna stop me.
Julian: Well, that's where you're wrong.
Rudge: I promise, I will find him. But I think it's safe to say that if he was going to go to the police, he...would have already done so by now. [Sighs] I'm afraid I have some more bad news.
Curtis: Buzz, anything you say remains within these walls.
Buzz: What about your altar boy here?
Curtis: He's a trusted friend.
Jason: Yeah, I am a friendly altar boy.
Curtis: Now can you please tell me how you got in and out of that pawn shop without anybody seeing you?
Buzz: No. I can't tell you that.
Curtis: Buzz, we ain't gonna rat you out, man, not on anything you've said to us. Who can you trust if you can't trust Father Curtis?
Buzz: Okay. There's a network of catacombs running under Port Charles. That's how I hide from Rudge, and that's how I get in and out of the pawn shop without anyone seeing me.
Jason: You're telling me that there's a way into the pawn shop from underground?
Buzz: Yeah. One of the passages leads to the basement under the shop, and no camera there. I had look around, found out that Rudge and boss lady have a secret office.
Curtis: [Clears throat]
Alexis: What are you gonna do, Julian? You gonna tackle me?
Alexis: You gonna rip my shirt open and hold a knife to my throat? You're gonna have to catch me first, and I'm pretty sure I can outrun a guy with a cane.
Julian: Exactly, and why am I walking with a cane, Alexis? Because you ran me over while you were drunk. I'm recuperating in your house, because you're out of control!
Alexis: Shut up. Shut up!
Julian: Yes, I'm not gonna tackle you. I'm not gonna tie you to a chair. I would never do that, Alexis.
Alexis: Because you're such a nice guy?
Julian: But I tell you what, I will ask you to do one thing, Alexis. I'm gonna ask you to go 12 hours without having a drink. Just prove me wrong. I mean, you've got to like the sound of that. All you have to do is go 12 hours to prove to me you don't have a drinking problem. That's it -- 12 hours.
Alexis: Yes, hi, this is Alexis Davis. My account number's 5537. I need a pickup at my house as fast as humanly possible.
Elizabeth: It's difficult for me to talk about Franco when the mere mention of his name tends to make people cringe.
Laura: [Sighs] Elizabeth, it's me. I'm the one who encouraged you to pursue a relationship with Franco, remember?
Elizabeth: I know. You really don't judge me for being with him?
Laura: No! Look, I had to learn a long time ago that everyone is capable of good and, well, doing harm. Listen, I know for a fact that really good people can make a terrible, selfish choice. But if you regret it, and you want to make amends for it, everyone deserves a second chance, including Franco.
Elizabeth: Laura, you don't know the whole story.
Scott: I'm gonna need some help here. I-I'm good, but I'm not that good that I can do this without an alibi!
Franco: Okay, this conversation is protected by attorney-client privilege, right?
Scott: Absolutely, 100%.
Franco: I could not have killed Tom Baker, because that night, I was locked in a metal dog crate.
Scott: Elizabeth Webber? The --
Franco: Oh, no.
Scott: Eww! It's the quiet ones.
Franco: Cut it -- stop!
Scott: Wha-- what are you talking about, a kink?
Franco: It's nothing -- and Elizabeth had nothing to do with it.
Scott: Well, why would you be locked in a monkey cage?
Franco: Because Tom Baker put me in a dog crate. But kind of makes sense, because I did put him there first.
Dillon: It makes sense, right? Because everybody kisses each other on New Year's Eve. So if that's all it was, I mean, I totally get it. It's fine. It's cool. I'll, uh...
Kiki: No, Dillon, wait. When we were on that very long bus ride, um, there was a point where you fell asleep, but I didn't, and... I started thinking about my life.
Kiki: And... I'm always gonna feel guilty over my role in Morgan's death. But on the bus... [Sighs] It hit me. I can just focus on my guilt, or I can learn to live with it, and I can do something useful.
Dillon: Such as?
Kiki: I don't know. Um, I mean, I could volunteer at the mental health wing at GH, or I could even go back to school and learn how to help people who have mental health issues like Morgan.
Dillon: Well, I mean, I think that Morgan would really like that, Kiki.
Kiki: I hope so. Well, first thing's first. I really got to go shower.
Dillon: Yeah, do you want me to leave?
Kiki: Uh, no. No, why don't you get online and start looking into food options, so we can have something delivered? You can shower after I'm done.
Dillon: Well I mean, we could shower together to save time, since water is such a precious resource and we'd be helping the environment.
Kiki: Don't press your luck, D.Q.
Rudge: Julian texted me. It appears as though his daughter and son-in-law -- that would be Sam and Jason Morgan -- have become suspicious. I can only assume that someone is watching the house, and saw me paying them a visit.
[Woman pours hot water on Rudge's hands]
Rudge: Aah! Aah! [Groans]
Jason: Do you have any family or anybody that would let you stay with them, set you up out of town?
Buzz: If had a relative or family to set me up, I wouldn't be sleeping on the streets.
Curtis: Well, listen, I have a friend, a really good friend, who runs a homeless shelter in Baltimore. There's his number. I'm gonna call him and have him expect you, okay?
Jason: You know what, uh, this should get you to Baltimore in comfort. Just, here, take it all, here you go.
Buzz: Thank you.
Jason: No, thank you. You really helped us out here.
Buzz: You know... just watch your step with those people. They don't mess around.
Curtis: Thanks, Buzz. Good call, man.
Jason: Yeah, it worked out, right?
Sam: So Rudge has a boss?
Jason: Yeah. So, uh, what'd you find out about Julian?
Sam: Um, he started out lying. No surprise there. He claims that he occasionally bought rare pieces from Rudge.
Curtis: So, he stonewalled.
Sam: Not completely. He swears that he had nothing to do with the car bomb. He was desperate and really scared. I actually believe him.
Julian: Come on, Alexis. You're telling me you can't go 12 hours without having a drink? I mean, isn't that the textbook definition of an alcoholic?
Alexis: I'm not saying I can't go without a drink. I'm saying I don't want to go without a drink. This may be hard to believe, but you know what? You're not the worst part of my day.
Julian: Uh-huh. And your only solution to deal with things is booze. I mean, face it, Alexis. You've become completely dependent on alcohol. Otherwise, you would be thrilled to take that challenge to prove me wrong, but you can't.
Alexis: I don't have to prove anything to you.
Julian: Fine. Then don't do it for me. Just, please, do it for our daughter. For our grandson. I mean, do it for Molly and Kristina, for everybody who loves you. But mostly, Alexis, do it for yourself, okay, for the career that you want back so badly. For your self-respect.
Alexis: Don't you talk to me about self-respect. I don't have any self-respect, because you took it!
Julian: I know. I betrayed you last summer. I did that. I sent your whole world crashing down around you, and if you're broken, Alexis, I understand it's because I broke you. Look, I understand that I damaged you so badly that your only comfort right now is at the bottom of a bottle. I did that to you. I drove you to this point. So please, Alexis, I owe this to you, to save your life.
Alexis: Are you gonna save my life, or are you gonna take my life? You got to pick one.
Julian: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I understand that I hurt you. I -- I do. And I also understand that you've got a lot going on right now. You've lost your -- your law license. You -- I mean, Kristina's moving out. That's a lot to process, Alexis. It's a lot of trauma, to be honest with you.
Alexis: Don't patronize me.
Julian: I'm not. That's not my intention. My -- my intention's not to patronize you. I just want to let you know I understand where you're coming from. I understand your urge to drink, to block out the rest of the world. I get it.
Alexis: [Remembers] Stop it. Leave me alone!
Tom: You know you want it. Aah! Aah! Ow!
Alexis: Somebody help me!
Tom: Hey, hey!
Alexis: Somebody! [Gasps]
Tom: Do that again, and you're dead.
Julian: Alexis, you take one step out that door, and the first call I make is to Sam! And she's already suspicious right now. Then I'm calling Kristina, Molly, Diane, and Jax. And we're gonna rally the troops, and we're gonna stage a real intervention.
Elizabeth: Every time I start to think I can be happy with Franco, it all falls apart.
Laura: Why, what happened?
Elizabeth: [Sighs] Tom Baker, the man who raped me, was paroled at the beginning of November.
Laura: Oh, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: A few days before Christmas, he was found dead -- murdered. The police suspect Franco.
Scott: You're telling me that you lured baker back to your apartment, you chloroformed him, and then you put him in some kind of a monkey cage?
Franco: A metal dog crate. I swear to you...
Scott: A dog crate?
Franco: Yes -- I wasn't gonna hurt the guy. Well, but that's already assault and false imprisonment.
Franco: I was just gonna keep him there long enough that he would miss his parole meeting, and then they would have to send him back to prison.
Scott: You know that that's crazy? That's like OCD thinking! That's nuts!
Franco: No, I was trying to protect Elizabeth.
Franco: And then, okay -- I realized [Clears throat] That I might have been wrong, and I might have gone too far.
Scott: You think so?
Franco: So I went back, and I let the guy out of the metal dog crate. But then he got the jump on me, and he put me in the metal dog crate. And then I was there all night and most of the next day, until I managed to get out.
Scott: So, you didn't kill Tom Baker?
Franco: No. You do believe me now?
Scott: Well, I...I do. It's just that your whole alibi here, you know, that alone could put you right into Sing Sing.
Franco: That's why I have to find the real killer. That's my only hope.
Scott: [Sighs] Well, what have you -- what have you got so far?
Franco: Okay, so, uh, not much. I know that they found Tom Baker's body in the alley right back there, and the owner of the place, he was pretty tight-lipped, but he did tell me that Baker was here that night. Apparently, with some woman who was drinking him under the table.
Scott: Can he identify that woman?
Franco: No, he said no.
Scott: Well -- well, let's say that, you know, you greased him a little more, you know? Do you think he might...
Scott: Greased! Give him a taste!
Franco: I gave him everything -- a taste? Everything in my wallet, that's what I gave him.
Scott: Okay, so what if I came in with a C-note? Do you think he might talk?
Franco: I don't know. He did not seem overly helpful.
Scott: So then, basically, you've got bubkes!
Franco: Guess who I ran into, though, when I came back in to give the bartender my contact information... Alexis Davis.
Kiki: Hey, Dillon, what'd you decide you want to eat? I really want Italian and Mexican.
Dillon: [In only a small towel] I want Italian, too, and Chinese.
Kiki: Ooh, yes, I want it... ...all. [Sighs]
Dillon: Uh, I -- I just forgot to grab my bag and bring it to the bathroom. I'll be right back.
Kiki: Oh, my.
Sam: Julian seemed genuinely scared when we talked about Rudge. He asked me to back off.
Jason: Yeah, well, I'm not gonna back off.
Sam: He said the deeper we dig, the more we know, the greater we are of being in danger. "We" meaning us -- Danny and the baby...
Curtis: Whoa, whoa, wait. Hold on. Julian threatened you and your kids?
Sam: Y-- I...I'm not trying to defend Julian, but I don't think this was a threat. I think he was trying to warn us. He is afraid for us. I know I don't have any proof, but I don't think he's responsible for the car bomb. I think he was a target. Rudge was behind it. Rudge is responsible for Morgan's death.
Jason: Yeah, he and whoever he's working for.
Curtis: Hmm, okay. So, according to Buzz, Rudge's boss is a woman who put a hit out on Buzz for his involvement in the car bomb, just like she tried to take out Julian and make it seem like Sonny was responsible.
Jason: So, who the hell is this woman? [Sighs]
Rudge: It's, uh -- not to worry. I'll, uh... I'll take care of Jason Morgan and anyone else that's working with him.
Alexis: I-I'm sorry. I changed my mind. Just add it to my account for the inconvenience. Sorry.
Alexis: Do you think that my friends and my family would listen to anything that you have to say? They hate you just as much as I do.
Julian: Well, then why didn't you get in the car? Because, like I said, you know that Sam's already suspicious, right?
Alexis: Because my daughter is pregnant, and she doesn't need the stress of hearing anything from you.
Julian: Well, I think it's more stressful to have a drunk as a mother. [Sighs] I'm sorry, I'm not telling you that to be cruel. Alexis, I just -- I just want to be honest with you. You know, I mean, for as many times as I've caught you drinking and being reckless, it's only a matter of time before your daughters catch you, whether you tell them or not. And you honestly think that Sam's gonna let you anywhere near Danny or her daughter if she thinks you're drunk all the time? How far are you gonna take this, Alexis? You've lost your law license. You've isolated yourself. How long until you have nobody?
Alexis: You should know -- you don't have anybody.
Julian: Yeah, I wish you could look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself to be that strong, admirable woman that I fell in love with. [Scoffs] A woman who didn't depend on anyone but herself. Who pitied addicts, but also had compassion for them. The first one that would lend a helping hand. [Sighs] And now, Alexis, you're so desperate for a drink, you -- you can't even help yourself, much less help anybody else.
Alexis: Are you kidding? You want me drunk, so that way you can keep me under your thumb.
Julian: Then take away my power. Stop...drinking. Alexis. It isn't just me and your family that you're losing. It's the entire world. Everybody who you've helped and defended.
Julian: You keep going like this, and you're gonna deprive them of one of their most brilliant and unselfish champions.
Scott: Alexis Davis was here?
Franco: Day drinking. She tried to pretend that she wasn't, but she made up some excuse about her phone being dead and she was lost, and she just stopped in here for directions.
Scott: Well, not everybody uses their little phones to get all the directions in life.
Franco: You didn't see her. She was beyond nervous.
Scott: Well, she has been off lately because of the Jerome trial, but we need to find out who the girl was that was drinking with Baker before he was murdered.
Franco: I don't think the owner's gonna rat out his own clientele.
Woman: Post that picture online and tag us. Say you were at Gene's Branford Roadhouse and maybe you'll get us more business. Okay?
Franco: Can I use your tablet?
Scott: My tablet? Why?
Franco: You're on Facebook?
Scott: Yeah, I'm on Facebook. I'm on Twitter. @scottbaldwin, that's how I get all of my clients. [Clears throat]
Franco: You didn't friend me.
Scott: Did you friend me?!
[Cell phone chimes]
Scott: Wait a minute. It's the PCPD. The analysis of fingerprints from the Tom Baker murder weapon are back.
Jason: Did your dad mention who he thinks Rudge might be working for?
Sam: No. Not a word. I'm telling you, he was scared. I think he's genuinely worried for us.
Jason: [Sighs] You thinking what I'm thinking?
Curtis: Yeah, that we now know a way to get in and out of that pawn shop without being noticed? Hell yeah.
Jason: Yeah. Let's go.
Sam: No, no, no, no. No, wait. Excuse me. Did you just say that you're gonna go into the pawn shop? The same place that Rudge and his mystery boss are? The same place that my father's terrified of?
Jason: Yeah, that's why I'm gonna go. This isn't about Sonny or Morgan anymore -- this is about us. This is about our kids. And I'm way too deep into this now to back off, so if Julian's right and these people think they can hurt my family, well, I'm gonna put an end to that right now.
Sam: Oh, Jason. Wait, what about you?
Curtis: Well, I wouldn't be ladling soup or doing all of this if I wasn't down.
Sam: Ladling soup and breaking and entering and risking your life, t-t-that's two different things, don't you think?
Curtis: It is, but if we do this smartly, we won't be risking our life. And I intend to do this smartly.
Sam: Uh, and can you -- be careful.
Jason: I'm always careful.
Sam: No, you're not. I love you.
Jason: I love you, too. It's gonna be okay.
Dillon: Wait, you got to try this. This is amazing. Here.
Kiki: That? Okay. Mmm! That's so good.
Kiki: I can't believe I missed that one. This whole meal...
Dillon: I know. It's the best ever.
Elizabeth: Franco told me he did not kill Tom. Maybe I'm being naive, given everything I know about his past, but I believe him.
Laura: Okay. Then what's the hesitation?
Elizabeth: [Sighs] Well, he may not have killed Tom, but he did try to carry out his own form of justice. And, Laura, what he did was so troubling, I can't even repeat it. But the good thing is he realized he had gone too far and he went back to try to fix it, but then Tom turned up dead. [Sighs]
Laura: All right, well... you don't -- you don't have to tell me what he did, that's fine, but can you live with this?
Elizabeth: I completely understand why he did it. And, yeah, I -- I can live with it. But, in a way, Franco kind of made that decision for me.
Laura: What do you mean?
Elizabeth: He's pulling away from me. He feels until the actual murderer is found, he should keep his distance.
Laura: Mm. But that's not what you want.
Elizabeth: I don't know. [Sighs] Part of me feels like I want to tell him I can handle it, all of it, and that I'll stay by his side. At least that's what my heart is saying. But my head is telling me that's crazy, to look at the red flags and to stay away.
Laura: We are all very flawed people. You know? Only you can decide if the good in Franco outweighs the bad. Love you.
Franco: What? What? Move, what does it say? Are my fingerprints on the murder weapon or not?
Scott: No -- I'm sitting on my briefcase. No, there -- there are no fingerprints. That means it must -- it must have been wiped down.
Franco: Well, it doesn't exactly clear me, either.
Scott: No. You're not off the hook.
Franco: Well, yeah, well, you're not off the hook for not friending me.
Scott: Wait a minute.
Scott: You -- you -- you could be charged for murder, and you're upset that I haven't friended you?
Franco: They were taking a selfie, right? So -- so what if somebody took a selfie the night that Tom Baker was murdered, right, and he accidentally photo-bombed it? That would lead us to his drinking buddy, right? So why don't you hop on your phone there and -- and search for the #genebranfordsroadhouse, okay?
Scott: Um, you know, it's a bit of a needle in a haystack here.
Franco: Well, I'm not giving up. I have to prove myself to Elizabeth.
Julian: Well, I've been doing a lot of reading, and, apparently, I need to keep you nourished and hydrated during your withdrawal, so there you go.
Alexis: Yeah, I've been drinking a lot, but not enough to go through withdrawal, so sorry to disappoint you.
Julian: Hey, listen. [Chuckles] I hope you're right, for your sake. But I've also read it's a good idea to keep you distracted, so I got a stack of DVDs of the latest movies and that new series that you've been wanting to watch, but never had time, all six seasons. Also the experts say it's a good idea to get some fresh air, which we can do right after you eat. So... [Silverware clatters] ...Dig in.
Alexis: [Remembers] [Grunts]
Tom: No screaming. No fighting.
Tom: And you're gonna be okay.
Alexis: You're not the first guy that held a knife to my throat.
Alexis: [Breathing heavily] You messed with the wrong woman.
[Back to present]
Alexis: [Shakily] Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Julian: What are you doing?
Alexis: Oh, my God. [Crying]
Julian: What are you doing?
Alexis: I'm calling for a -- a liquor delivery.
Julian: Aw, come on, Alexis. I thought we were getting somewhere.
Alexis: [Sobbing] No, no, no, no, no. I need a drink. I need a drink. Oh, my God. I got to have a drink!
Julian: Hey, what -- what's going on? Why are you freaking out?
Alexis: [Whispers] Because you don't know what I've done. Oh, my God. What have I done? What have I done? [Breathing shakily]
Jason: What the...?
Kiki: Did you hear? I think, uh, that's dessert.
Kiki: Yeah, well, once you taste these cream puffs, you're gonna forget all about what we were just doing.
Dillon: I doubt that.
Kiki: Oh, Elizabeth, hi. Sorry I thought that you were our delivery.
Elizabeth: Oh, sorry. No, I'm just looking for Franco. Is he here? He's not at the hospital, and I'm on my break, so I thought --
Kiki: I actually just got home, no, he hasn't been here. Have you called him?
Elizabeth: No. I was wanting to surprise him. [Chuckles]
Kiki: Mm! That's sweet. Yeah, well, I'll just tell him when I see him.
Elizabeth: Don't. That's okay. 'Cause then it -- it wouldn't be a surprise, right? [Chuckles]
Kiki: All right.
Kiki: What was that about? [Chuckles]
Dillon: Oh, you didn't recognize that? That is the same dance that you and I have been doing for the past few months. One step forward and two steps backwards. That is the fear of jumping into a relationship.
Kiki: Oh, right. That.
Dillon: I think that we should wait.
Kiki: For dessert?
Dillon: [Chuckles] No. For what's supposed to happen next with us. No pressure.
Franco: Move over.
Scott: Boy, this generation. They're just obsessed with selfies. There's thousands of them from Gene's Roadhouse here, but none on December 21st, the night that Tom Baker was murdered. So maybe we should come back another night, find another waitress or a bartender, slip them $100, and see if they can give us a description of the girl that Baker was hitting on.
Scott: What? You got something? Make it bigger.
Julian: Hey, Alexis, you need to talk to me because whatever it is you did, drinking's not gonna help it. So just slow down. Tell me what you did. What's got you so upset?
Alexis: I was outside the bar at Gene Branford's Roadhouse, and I -- I was drunk and I did something.
Julian: Yeah, I know, that's where you hit me with the car.
Alexis: No, no, no, no, no. It wasn't that. It was him. It was somebody else.
Julian: Him? Okay, what did you do to this guy?
Alexis: I killed him.
On the next "General Hospital" --
Diane (to Sonny): What exactly do you know about this case that I don't.
Nelle: I'll take care of it.
Carly: Now I got to tell Sonny. He's not gonna like it.
Curtis: Please tell me that's not --
Jason: Yeah. This place is on fire, man. We got to get out of here. Let's go.
Sam (to Ava): There's a lot more to it than anyone knows.
Franco (to Scott): She's been hiding her drinking. Maybe she's hiding something else.
Alexis (to Julian): I killed Tom Baker.
