Griffin: Your vitals are all good. Once your scans confirm your progress, you can be on your way.

Julian: Well, that's good. I can't be here all day. I've got a...driver waiting for me in the garage.

Griffin: I'll go check on those X-rays.

Julian: Sighs] Hey, Alexis, I'm just checking in to see how you're doing. I'm still at the hospital, waiting for the doctor to come back with my latest scans, but so far, everything looks good. Anyway, I guess I'll see you later.

[Door opens]

Julian: Hey. That was quick. So how am I looking?

Rudge: From where I stand... not very good.

Sonny: [Sighs]

[Beeping]

Sonny: [Sighs]

Nelle: I'm on my way out. Carly asked me to check in on Sonny while she's away.

Sam: Oh, yeah? Where's Carly going?

Sonny: Australia to bring Joss home.

Nelle: So, um, just let me know if you need anything else.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah, sure.

[Door opens, closes]

Jason: Hey, Sonny. You okay?

Sonny: Yeah, yeah, I'm just... thinking about a few things I have to deal with.

Nelle: Hey, so, um, I faxed the overtime forms to Carly to sign, and all the floral arrangements have been placed.

Olivia: Oh, thank you!

Nelle: Mm-hmm.

Olivia: I mean, this is nuts. I don't know why I agreed to do this again. Whoa, whoa, whoa, yo, yo, yo! I don't know you. You are not on my staff.

Agent: Ma'am?

Nelle: Uh, he's a temp -- between the event downstairs in the ballroom and the wedding here, we needed extra servers.

Olivia: Okay. Good thinking. Sorry. Carry on. I hope that wasn't rude. I can't just have anyone walking on through here. And you -- you go on and enjoy the rest of your day. You've earned it. I honestly don't know what I would have done without you. So thank you.

Nelle: Well, you're welcome.

[Both chuckle]

Nelle: Okay. [Sighs] Oh!

Michael: Oh!

Lulu: Oh, Robin! Hi!

Robin: Hey!

Lulu: Oh! I am so glad that you were able to stay long enough for Maxie's wedding -- Part II.

Robin: Are you kidding me? I mean, I all but grounded her last time. I had to come and make sure that she made it down the aisle.

Lulu: You and me, both. This time, nothing is going to spoil her big day.

[Cell phone chimes]

Lulu: Oh, no.

Robin: What?

Lulu: Uh... minor hiccup.

Nina: Hey.

Nathan: Hey, hey, hey, hey.

Nina: Oh!

Nathan: What's with the 911 text, and where is Maxie?

Nina: Yeah. Uh, that's the thing. Dillon and I, we left her alone for about two seconds, and then she disappeared.

Nathan: Nina, come on. You were supposed to keep her busy until we were ready. I mean... [Sighs] Maybe she went -- maybe she went to the mail room to --

Nina: No, Dillon, we checked. We checked everywhere. Dillon's still looking for her. She's not answering our calls.

Nathan: Well, we got to find her, Nina! People are gonna be showing up to our surprise wedding any minute.

Nina: Looks like the surprise is on us.

Nathan: [Sighs] No, no, she's got to be here somewhere.

Maxie: I need to get a ticket.

Jordan: Curtis. What are you doing here?

Curtis: Well, I was gonna get my grub on, but... what's going on here, what's this, a wedding or something?

Jordan: Yeah, one of my detectives.

Curtis: [Inhales sharply] Enjoy this.

Jordan: What?

Curtis: You know I've been, like, going over this in my mind back and forth all night. Um, so I guess it's good that I ran into you. You know, I could help you, but we got to do it on my terms.

Jordan: Curtis.

Curtis: In return, maybe you can do me a solid.

Jordan: I am wearing... brand-new heels that are pinching my feet, so you talking in circles... just please get to the point.

Curtis: The point. Okay, Jordan. Uh... I hope I'm not making a wrong move here, but I'm gonna trust you on this, so please don't prove me wrong.

Jordan: I'm listening.

Curtis: We're moving in on who's responsible for Morgan Corinthos' death. And please believe it ain't Sonny.

Sonny: I'm getting stir crazy -- being cooped up here for so long.

Jason: Hey, man, it's better here than a cell, right?

Sonny: Well, a luxury cage is still a cage. It just -- it's very difficult to get started.

Jason: Is there a particular thing you want to get started?

Jason: Well... I been thinking about you and Curtis at the pawn shop and whoever is responsible for Morgan's death is still out there. And all I can do is have my people just watch a burnt pile of rubble till the killer comes back. You know what? You don't -- you don't need to hear me rant. What's going on?

Sam: Well, we, um... we went by the location and checked in with Max this morning, and no one, including the owner, came to inspect the damage. So I looked up the property records online. And it's owned by a -- a dummy corporation.

Sonny: So it's another dead end.

Jason: It's not a dead end. It's a road block. We're gonna figure it out.

Sonny: Well, the trial starts soon. We got to figure it out fast.

Michael: I thought my mom gave you the week off when she was in Australia.

Nelle: She did, but Olivia had this pop-up wedding come up. So...I helped out.

Michael: Oh, yes. Maxie and Nathan's surprise wedding. That's why I'm here, too.

Nelle: Are you in it?

Michael: No, no. My brother, Dante, is the best man. So I offered to bring him his tux.

Nelle: Oh. Well, kudos to you for being a good brother and props to him for... helping pull this off.

Michael: Yeah, thanks. So, um... I spent all day at work crunching numbers, and I could really clear my head and have a little bit of fun. And I know the perfect place to go, if you want to join.

Robin: Wait, what do you mean, Maxie's gone?

Nathan: I mean she's gone. She's not here.

Dante: Did you check the building?

Nathan: Of course, I checked the building. She's not in it.

Nina: Okay, guys, I did everything that we discussed, everything as planned. I just, you know, acted like it a normal day in the office.

Lulu: No wonder she ran.

Nina: Uh, I'm sorry, is there something you'd like to say to me?

Lulu: Actually, I have plenty to say to you.

Robin: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Okay, stop. That's not gonna bring Maxie back. You -- you tried calling her, right?

Nathan: Yeah. Yeah, I called her a bunch of times, went straight to voicemail. But, you know, I mean, she can't keep her phone charged to save her life.

Robin: Save her life, yes.

Nathan: Why would she leave? Was she okay? What was her state of mind when she left?

Nina: She was fine. She was fine, I guess.

Lulu: Guess again.

Robin: Not helping.

Nathan: Okay, why don't we check her computer?

Lulu: I can do that. I'm... okay. I'm in. What do you want to know?

Agent: Where would you like to fly to today?

Maxie: Um, uh, Portland, Oregon. Look, I know that this flight is full, and I'm hoping I could fly standby.

Agent: There are already six people ahead of you on the standby list. Your best bet is to book a flight and come back tomorrow.

Maxie: No, no, no, no, this can't wait. Look, uh, my life has been pretty crazy the last few months. I wouldn't believe it if I didn't live it myself, but it's true. Every single bit of it. See, I've got this fiancé. [Sighs] He is so gorgeous and sexy. He's a hot cop. He speaks French fluently. He's not French, but he speaks it, and I think that's hot. Anyway, we're supposed to be on our honeymoon right now, but we can't get married, because my Nathan needs time to heal, and I need to go someplace where my sad feelings won't be judged for just a few days, and place is Portland to see my daughter. So I need to get on this plane today, please. Okay, I need to see one friendly face. Make it happen.

Spinelli: Maximista?

Maxie: Spinelli?

Spinelli: [Chuckles] Will mine do?

Maxie: [Chuckles]

Spinelli: [Chuckles]

Nathan: I think I found something. Looks like Max ordered a car to take her to the airport.

Robin: Well, where would she be going?

Nathan: I totally misread the situation. I... I thought she could handle everything that was going on, but she's overwhelmed.

Lulu: Where is she going?

Nathan: I don't know, but I got to stop her.

Maxie: Spinelli, you have no idea how good it is to see you.

Spinelli: Likewise, I'm sure, I'm sure. But, uh, you're not supposed to be here.

Maxie: What do you mean?

Spinelli: I mean... you're supposed to be, you know... somewhere else.

Maxie: You mean Crimson? I was there all right, giving my work my usual 200%, but could anyone be bothered to show the slightest bit of sensitivity or consideration? Nope. It's all wedding issue this, wedding issue that. I need to get out of here. I got to see Georgie.

Spinelli: Oh, that's, uh... that's not possible right now.

Maxie: Why not? Wait, why are you here?

Spinelli: I'm here, I'm just -- I'm doing a little, uh, job for -- for Sam. She... she asked for my assistance, and so here I am, you know.

Maxie: Oh. Okay.

Spinelli: Happy to assist.

Maxie: Okay. Why does that mean I can't see Georgie?

Spinelli: Because I'm here, and... uh, Georgie has the week off of school, so Ellie's just, uh, you know, taking her on a little girls' trip.

Maxie: What kind of girls' trip?

Spinelli: Disney World. She is taking Georgie to Disney World.

Maxie: Oh. Wait... Ellie's taking my daughter on her first trip to Disney World?

Spinelli: Yeah.

Maxie: Isn't that some sort of rite of passage? I wanted to be the first person to take her on the teacups and see those princesses. That's it. I'm going to Disney World.

Spinelli: Okay, can't I just, um, ask you, I mean, why -- why the sudden rush to -- to get out of town? I can't imagine that the Crimson wedding issue would give you cause to flee.

Maxie: Fleeing. Is that what I'm doing?

Spinelli: Kind of.

Maxie: I guess you're right. I'm trying to flee so I don't make a sad situation all about me, but I need to just give Nathan some space.

Spinelli: Look, I mean, I would never claim to know Detective West as well as you do, but I would imagine that the last thing that he would want in the entire world is space from the person that he loves more than anyone else. Namely yourself. I tell you what, I rented a car. Please, let me drive you back into town. Talk to Nathan. He might just surprise you.

Sonny: What about the picture that Jason found? Did you go to Julian about it?

Sam: I, um -- I haven't had a chance to talk to Julian about the picture yet, but when I talked to him before, he seemed genuinely worried.

Jason: [Chuckles] Something made him nervous. That pawn shop sure did go up in a fire in a hurry.

Sonny: If he was a target, that means he was involved. I don't care who wants to blow him up to kingdom come. He was -- he was... he was part responsible for Morgan's death.

Jason: You okay?

Sam: Yeah. Um... I'm gonna -- I'm gonna get some water. I don't -- I don't want to be late for the wedding, either, okay?

Sonny: How's the pregnancy?

Jason: Oh, it seems fine. She's supposed to be taking it easy, but... [Scoffs]

Sonny: I guess that includes not worrying about you could have been burned to death.

Jason: Look, what happened in that pawn shop, it was no big deal. I've seen worse.

Sonny: [Chuckles] Still, I mean... you took a risk, I appreciate that. You're a good friend. I can always count on you.

Jason: Yeah, you can always count on me.

Sonny: Which is why after... all this is over, I think we should have a conversation about your role in the business.

Julian: What the hell you doing here?

Rudge: There's been an incident at the shop. Jason Morgan and his associate have gained access to the boss' office. As a precaution, we had to abandon the premises, so she wasn't exposed. But...further precaution led us to destroy the premises. The boss is... upset about the expense and the inconvenience.

Julian: [Chuckles] Must suck to be her. But I don't know what you expect me to do about it.

Rudge: We've had enough of Jason Morgan. Get rid of him. Tonight.

Jordan: Curtis, you broke into a pawn shop. Are you crazy? As in unlawful entry break-in?

Curtis: There was a basement room that they converted to an office, okay? Buzz said that.

Jordan: Oh, Buzz. Buzz, the mythical homeless guy. Got it.

Curtis: Yes, Buzz, the homeless guy, okay. He said that Rudge and the woman have been working out of that office at least since October, okay. She's the boss. She calls all the shots. She's the one who had Rudge get Buzz to plant that bomb in Jerome's car. But, bless his heart, old Buzz didn't even know it was a bomb at the time.

Jordan: So it's a trio -- Rudge, Buzz, and a female boss. Well, where is, uh, this Buzz character, anyway?

Curtis: Don't even worry about it. I stashed him somewhere safe.

Jordan: See, Curtis --

Curtis: All you need know.

Jordan: That's -- that's not good enough!

Curtis: Damn it, Jordan. You know good and well if I was rocking one of them badges, you would -- you would pat me on the back, and you would follow ever lead I provided for you, regardless of what his name was or what he was called, okay? Bottom line, Corinthos is innocent.

Jordan: Then prove it. Prove it, but you do it the right way. You bring Buzz in, and I'm gonna take his statement.

Rudge: Jason Morgan is a threat that needs eliminating. You have resources at your disposal. Use them.

Julian: It's not gonna happen. I'm not killing my daughter's husband.

Rudge: Up until now, you've always done what we've requested.

Julian: Let's get one thing straight. You don't request anything. You force, threaten the people I care about. You force me to hurt them... to keep you from doing worse.

Rudge: Well, you always hurt the ones you love.

Julian: You know what? I'm sick of the mind games you and your boss like to play, watching me twist in the wind for your own enjoyment. I'm done.

Rudge: Are you saying we can't count on you to resolve this?

Julian: What I'm saying...

[Door opens]

Griffin: Sorry that took me... a while. Am I interrupting something?

Jason: [Sighs]

Sonny: I know I've told you this before, but there's nobody I trust more than you. And I haven't bothered you about this in a long time. Um, but things have -- have changed.

Jason: [Sighs]

Sonny: Don't you feel like this is where you belong?

Jason: Sonny, uh... you're my friend. But where I belong is with my wife and my kids.

Sonny: Absolutely. Family is a priority. Just think about it.

Jason: Yeah.

Sonny: We'll get into this once everything clears up.

Jason: Okay. You know, look, I... I'm around. I'm always in touch, so...

Sam: Hey.

Jason: Hey.

Sam: Hi. Okay. We -- we better get going.

Jason: All right. You sure you're okay?

Sam: Yeah, yeah, I'm okay. It was nice seeing you.

Jason: I'll get your coat.

Sam: Yes, of course.

Jason: Whoops.

Sam: [Chuckles] [Sighs]

Jason: Ready?

Sam: Yeah.

Jason: Hey.

Sonny: All right. Thanks.

[Door opens]

Jason: [Whistles]

Sam: Hey.

Jason: Hey.

Sam: Look, um, I wasn't trying to eavesdrop.

Jason: Okay.

Sam: But I heard Sonny make you another offer.

Jason: Yeah, well, you and I, we make the decisions, so...

Sam: I know. And I want you to know that I, of all people, know that things change. So I'm -- I'm with you, no matter what.

Jason: Well...

Sam: Well?

Jason: That's why that was an easy decision.

Sam: Yeah?

Jason: Mm-hmm.

Sam: Ow.

Jason: What's going -- hey, what's up? What's going on?

Sam: Nothing.

Jason: What's wrong? Hey, talk to me.

Sam: I'm okay. [Sighs] Okay, we might be late for the wedding.

Jason: Yeah, we're not okay. Let's go. You ready, come on.

Sam: Okay.

Jason: Let's go.

Nelle: You weren't kidding. Perks really does have the best hot chocolate.

Michael: Yeah, just one more example of how I always know what's best.

Nelle: Oh, do you now?

Michael: Have I ever steered you wrong?

Nelle: [Chuckles]

Michael: You know, I -- I seem to remember following you here to this spot after you ran out of my mother's house, and you were ready to take the first bus home. I'm glad I convinced you to stay. How about you?

Nelle: I'll have to give you that one. I will say staying in Port Charles has definitely lined up with some of my long-term goals.

Dante: PCPD.

Nathan: We need to know what flight a passenger boarded earlier today, so I need access to your passenger manifests.

Agent: Get real, fellas. You know this is an international airport. You'll have to bring me a warrant from either the state police or the feds.

Nathan: All right, look. It's not official police business, okay, it's personal. It's about my fiancée. We were supposed to get married this week, but things got crazy, life got in the way, and I just --

Agent: Wait, h-hold on there. Do you, by chance, speak French?

Nathan: Uh... oui.

Agent: Okay, this isn't breaking the rules. The woman you're looking for didn't buy a ticket from me. She got out of line. But I did hear her talking about going to Disney World.

Maxie: Spinelli, why did you insist on bringing me here? This is the last place I want to be.

Nina: [Sighs] Maxie, hey! We have a deadline! Where have you been? Please get in here.

Maxie: Nina, I'm sorry. If I see one more wedding accessory, I'm gonna freak out. What's going on?

Lulu: Surprise!

Robin: Surprise! [Laughs]

Maxie: Oh, my God.

Lulu: Maxie Jones, welcome to your wedding day.

Maxie: I don't understand.

Nina: Hey, you're marrying my brother tonight. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Maxie: This is so... I was going to... did you know about this? Is that why you brought me here?

Spinelli: Uh... yeah.

[Laughter]

Maxie: And Georgie's not in Disney World?

Spinelli: No, Mac's just, uh, picking her up right now.

Lulu: Nathan and Dante are out searching for you.

Felicia: Maxie! I was starting to think you were gonna miss your own wedding.

Maxie: Mom!

Spinelli: I'm gonna go alert the groom. Excuse me.

Felicia: Oh, I hope those are tears of joy.

Maxie: Yeah, they are. This is so wonderful, you guys. No, we can't do this to Nathan. I cannot force him down the aisle, and none of you guys can, either.

Lulu: Maxie... this was Nathan's idea.

Maxie: It was?

Lulu: Mm-hmm.

Robin: Yeah. He delayed the wedding so many times, he just... couldn't wait any longer.

Lulu: So, surprise. [Chuckles]

Maxie: I thought he...

Nina: Hey, listen... [Chuckles] When are you gonna get this through your head? My brother would move mountains to be with you. He would move heaven and earth to be with you. There's nothing he'd rather do than spend the rest of his life with you.

Felicia: [Chuckles]

Dante: Well, that agent deserves a medal. So if Maxie got out of line, she didn't buy a ticket from that agent. We got to see if there's any other airlines that are leaving for Orlando.

Nathan: Yeah, yeah, just one, but it left a half an hour ago. I mean, she may have already gone.

[Cell phone rings]

Nathan: Damn it, what do I do?

Dante: [Sighs] Falconeri.

Spinelli: Greetings, Detective. Spinelli here. Will you please inform the anxious groom that his bride has been recovered, and is getting ready as we speak?

Dante: Thank you, Spinelli! Great news!

Curtis: I'm not gonna give up my witness.

Jordan: Okay. Even though I don't like the way that you went about all of this... I do appreciate your dedication. Maybe I can trust you again.

Curtis: How exactly?

Jordan: You bring Buzz in to me. That is gonna go a long way in convincing me -- and convincing the city -- that you're worthy of a badge again. You see what I'm saying?

Curtis: I do. But I can't. Look, your trust means a lot to me. But so does Buzz's. I gave that man my word that I would keep him safe. My word is all I got left.

Jordan: Then that's that, then.

Curtis: Look, u-u-unless... unless we got another way to get that win-win.

Julian: No, no, you're not interrupting anything, Dr. Munro. This is just, uh... my driver.

Griffin: Oh. I thought you said your driver was waiting for you in the parking garage.

Rudge: I figured Mr. Jerome might need some assistance on his way out.

Griffin: Well, no need to hold you up then. Your, uh, scans look fine. You're free to go. Have a nice day.

Julian: Thanks.

Rudge: Hell of a bedside manner.

Julian: [Sighs] You know, that was an unnecessary risk.

Rudge: So is Jason Morgan getting too close. So what's it to be? Gets done tonight?

Julian: No. It doesn't.

Rudge: That would be extremely unwise.

Julian: Well, I don't care. I'm sick of being a prisoner in my own life.

Rudge: You know, the only other alternative would be --

Julian: Yeah, what is it, death? Fine, go ahead and kill me. You know, I have -- I've had a good life up until now. Well, a family that's actually cared about me, and that I've cared about them. Alexis, Lucas, Sam, Leo. And I lost all of that because of everything that you've made me do for the last year. My wife's life has fallen apart. And now you just -- you want me to take away my pregnant daughter's husband? Well, that's not gonna happen. Because I'm not gonna let you tear apart their lives the way you tore apart my life.

Rudge: Well... we've made it quite clear what happens to your family once you stop cooperating.

Julian: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. You've made it very clear. Now I'm gonna return the favor. I'm done. To hell with you. I'm telling my family everything.

Robin: Ladies! Time!

Lulu: [Chuckles] As matron of honor, I need to make sure that we have all of our ducks in a row.

Robin: Okay.

Lulu: So attention. Oh, yes. Um... Oh. Yes. Right.

Felicia: Something old, check. Ooh!

Nina: Something new, check.

Maxie: Aww!

Lulu: And something borrowed, check.

Robin: Something blue. A garter.

Nina: I just like saying garter.

[Laughter]

Maxie: You guys are the best.

Lulu: Damn straight. Now let's get you ready to be married.

Olivia: Hey, there you two are. Here, you brother brought this over earlier. Hurry up and get dressed.

Spinelli: There's a suite next door where you can change. I'll bring this in.

Dante: Thank you, Spinelli. We owe you.

Nathan: Yeah, uh -- big time! [Chuckles] I owe you, too, man.

Dante: Oh, you would have done the same for me.

Nathan: Yeah, but that's what I mean. You know, you... you make me feel like a part of your family. You know, you got my back. You know, the holidays, Rocco's birthday parties. I just... I'm just trying to say that, you know, you're more than my partner on the police force or my best man. You know, more like a... my brother.

Dante: [Chuckles]

Nathan: And I'm honored to have you stand with me today.

Dante: Thanks. Same here. [Chuckles] We supposed to hug now or something?

Nathan: Yeah, I guess it would be kind of weird if we didn't.

Dante: All right, come on, bring it in! Bring it in.

Griffin: Sonny, hey. The, uh... the guards let me through. I was, uh... I was on the way to the Metro Court. I saw your gate, I, uh... I had an impulse to stop by. I know it's been a while. I hope you don't mind.

Sonny: Come in.

Griffin: All right, thank you.

Sonny: I'm glad you came by, actually.

Griffin: Yeah. Yeah, you know, I... I would have come by sooner, but I -- I'd been out of town. How's it been, being...homebound?

Sonny: Well, that's, uh, one way of putting it.

Griffin: Right. I'm, uh... [Chuckles] I'm sure you've had a lot of time to, uh, think, reflect. Oh. Maybe found a little bit of peace about what happened?

Sonny: I'm getting there. Uh... I'm not gonna -- I'm not gonna excuse my lifestyle. But it does feel good knowing that it wasn't my fault. I don't know if you know what some other -- somebody -- they found somebody else...

Griffin: Well, Sonny, that's --

Sonny: Who went after him, yeah.

Griffin: Sonny, that's huge. Uh, I mean, I'm sure that brought you -- brought great relief to you and Carly.

Sonny: Well, we're, uh... we're together again -- not really, kind of. But just it's the healing process. But, uh... yeah, yeah.

Griffin: Well, that's -- that's good to hear.

Sonny: Yeah. [Sighs]

Griffin: Why, uh... why do I sense there's something more?

Sonny: I don't want to burden you with this. I mean, you -- I've taken enough of your time. And... it's not like you're taking confessions, right?

Griffin: [Chuckles] Maybe not, but I mean, I can listen. I mean, after all, something made me turn into your gate today.

Sonny: I, uh... I slept with someone... other than my wife.

Nelle: Oh, where to now?

Michael: There. On the ice.

Nelle: Oh...no, Michael. That's okay. I'm gonna -- I'm just gonna head home.

Michael: Whoa, can I -- do I have to teach you how to ice skate?

Nelle: Oh, no, mighty one. I actually know how to skate quite well.

Michael: Really?

Nelle: Yes. I actually had a coach back home tell me I could have made it into the Olympics.

Michael: Wow. W-what happened? Did you -- did you burn out or something?

Nelle: No. [Chuckles] Coaches and training cost money that I didn't have. My father told me that being a figure skater was a pipe dream. And that I should hang up my skates and... forget about it. So I did. And, uh, I haven't put on a pair since.

Michael: I'm sorry.

Nelle: Well, dreams are just that, right -- dreams. Not everyone can afford to follow them. I learned that at a young age. [Sighs] Taught me to grow up fast. So I'm gonna pass on skating. It doesn't have a happy memory associated with it.

Michael: Well... memories are memories, right? Some are good, some are bad. But it's in the past. I've had some pretty... difficult memories, but I choose not to let them define me. When you wallow in the pain, you just become a victim for the rest of your life. Now, I've learned that what defines you is what you do today. Right? And what I've seen in you now, being here today, it's pretty great. So just... let go of all that baggage. Nelle, it's just... it's just holding you back.

Griffin: You had an affair?

Sonny: No. No, it was one night. It's just... [Sighs] After Carly walked out, I wa-- I was hurting. I was drinking. I heard she kissed her ex. I'm not -- it's not an excuse, it should have never happened. [Sighs]

Griffin: Who is this woman?

Sonny: Someone close to the family. She, uh... she's actually getting close to Michael, my son now. So I wouldn't only be hurting Carly... I'd be hurting another son.

Griffin: Look... I understand why you're struggling with this. And I, uh... I certainly can't judge you for your actions. But I'm assuming you're not trying to make a bunch of Hail Marys and be absolved of your sins here.

Sonny: I'm just looking for advice. I know what it could do, the damage it could do. I just -- I just want to know if I should tell the truth about what I've done.

Rudge: I wouldn't do anything stupid like tell your family about our mutual friend. That would only put them directly in her sights.

Julian: Oh, yeah. Yeah, that's pretty clever, isn't it? That's how you've been controlling me all along, isn't it? By threatening my family. Yeah, you know, I thought I was keeping them safe. But, ironically, everything you've had me do hasn't led to their safety at all. In fact, it's destroying them. So I'm done.

Rudge: Boss won't like that.

Julian: [Chuckles] Well, you know, maybe... maybe it's time for the boss to start worrying about me for a change. You know, it's been to her advantage to be working in the shadows. But maybe it's time we turn on the lights on, huh? Because when that happens, well, I think you'll find I make for a pretty powerful enemy.

Rudge: That's really how you want to play this?

Julian: [Chuckling] Well... I don't think you've been listening to me. Tell your boss I'm done playing.

Rudge: [Sighs]

[Ringing]

Waiter: Yes? I'm listening.

Rudge: The boss was right. Mr. Jerome isn't being cooperative. We need to go ahead with her plan to... incentivize him.

Waiter: Understood.

Olivia: Hey, Ned. Yeah, I'm gonna take you up on that offer to pick up Leo from the sitter. Okay, I'll swing by your place after the ceremony, and I'll pick him up. [Chuckles] I love you, too, Ned. Thanks again.

Waiter: Hold that, will you?

Olivia: Yeah.

Waiter: Thanks.

Olivia: Any time.

Sam: This is totally embarrassing.

Jason: Why?

Sam: Why? Because it's the second time you've taken me to the hospital for no apparent reason.

Jason: Oh, would you rather there be a reason?

Sam: No, of course not. No. I guess I have to... listen to my body. Take it easy.

Jason: Want to go home, skip the wedding?

Sam: Miss Maxie's wedding? Oh, I'd hate to do that, but I have to tell you, curling up on the couch with you sounds really, really good right about now.

Jason: Well, I'm all for that.

Sam: Me, too. We'll leave Maxie a message and I'm sure she'll understand.

[Elevator dings]

Sam: Okay. What movie are we gonna watch? Oh, I'm g-- [Sighs]

Olivia: All right, all right, all right, people. We are on the clock here.

Maxie: Wait, wait, just a second. Just a second. Um... [Sighs] I've been so down in the dumps lately, feeling really sorry for myself. But after seeing all of this, what you guys have done for me... I feel lucky to have you in my life. And I just want you to know how much I treasure all of you.

All: We love you! We love you!

Felicia: Yeah.

Lulu: We love you so much.

Olivia: Sniffle, sniffle, sniffle. Everybody, we got to get this show on the road.

Maxie: Oh, okay.

Olivia: We know, we know, we know.

Robin: Okay, get the dress. It's important. Got it?

Maxie: Nobody step on my dress.

Felicia: It's like -- careful of the table.

Nina: Hit the button. [Chuckles] Aah! Aah!

Maxie: Thank you, thank you.

Lulu: Yeah, yeah.

Nina: You got her?

Felicia: Got her.

Maxie: Okay.

Olivia: All right, you guys, go. Ladies, I'll take the next one.

Lulu: Okay, okay.

Nina: Okay.

Nelle: What you said was very sweet. But it's easy to let things go when you grew up in the lap of luxury.

Michael: Well, that's uh -- that's not -- that's not fair, and that's actually not very accurate. Um... look, I've been through a lot of stuff, just like you've been through a lot of stuff. And all I know is that you have to keep living, have to keep trying, and you will make it through. It's like that old cliché, it always gets darkest before the dawn. It's true.

Nelle: How do you stay so positive?

Michael: 'Cause I don't like the alternative.

Nelle: I guess, but... I wish I could do that.

Michael: Yeah?

Nelle: Mm-hmm.

Michael: Well... here's what I do. Every single day, I make one happy memory. Just one. That way, I'm always looking forward, never looking back. So how about we start right now, hmm? How about we rent some skates and test out this ice?

Nelle: [Sighs]

Michael: Okay. Come on.

Griffin: When it comes to admitting the truth, there's two schools of thought. One being that the truth will set you free. That honesty is valued above all else, no matter the consequences.

Sonny: What's the other one?

Griffin: That the damage is already done. And by telling your wife, you'd be unburdening yourself at her expense.

Sonny: Not to mention alienating me from my son. So... I suffer in silence, or I bite the bullet. I... [Sighs] [Chuckling] I don't know which one to choose.

Griffin: Only you can decide. [Sighs] I'm sorry, but I -- I got to get going.

Sonny: Yeah, I'll walk you out. [Clears throat] Thanks for stopping by.

Griffin: Of course. Um... as for your dilemma... think about it. Pray about it. You'll know when you know.

Sonny: Thank you. [Sighs]

Jordan: Anything less than Buzz's statement is not gonna work for me.

Curtis: Okay, well, then instead of trying to get Buzz in here, why don't we go see Buzz? Would you feel comfortable taking his statement outside the station?

Jordan: [Inhales deeply] I'd have to file the right paperwork, but... [Sighs] Yeah. Yeah, that could work.

Curtis: All right. Bet. Then I will, uh... I'll set it up for tomorrow. I'll get you the logistics as soon as possible.

Jordan: Okay.

Curtis: Yeah.

Jordan: Hey... are you sure you're okay with this? I mean, this is still a big risk, bringing me in on his location.

Curtis: I know. I trust you.

Jordan: Hey... thank you.

Julian: Sam.

Jason: We're gonna take the stairs.

Julian: Okay, please, wait, Sam. [Sighs] I was actually on my way to find you. I have to tell you something.

Sam: Not now. I am not up for your lies or evasions. Whatever you have to say, it can wait.

Julian: Sam, please, it's important.

Jason: She said she's not interested.

Julian: Okay, listen to me. Both you need to hear this.

Rudge: Well, you were right. Julian even threatened to tell his family. But it's been handled. I sent him a message he won't be able to... ignore.

Olivia: Hey. Ned, I'm on my way over. I'm just -- whoa. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Whoa, slow down, slow down. What's wrong? You're scaring me. Leo?!

On the next "General Hospital" --

Maxie (to Robin, Lulu, Nina, & Felicia): We're getting married today.

Nathan (to Dante): The surprise wedding is actually going to be a reality.

Griffin (to Anna): Did something else happen?

André (to Jordan): I want you to stay here with me.

Julian (to Sam): I want to tell you everything.

Rudge (to Woman): We've got the wheels already in motion.

Olivia (to Ned): You're scaring me. Okay, I'll meet you over at GH.
