Lulu: I want to take credit for it. I do, but I was just a worker bee. This was all Nathan's idea.
Nathan: What can I say? I had a great motivation to make my wife happy.
Maxie: It's a shame that Crimson can't run this in our wedding issue.
Lulu: Why not?
Maxie: Are you kidding? Crimson runs on advertisements. If our readers knew you could whip together a wedding like this on a budget, we'd be out of business.
Nina: I'm gonna get something else to drink.
Charlotte: Was your wedding to Nina as beautiful as this?
Valentin: Oh, in its own way, it was even more beautiful.
Charlotte: I'm so glad you married Nina.
Valentin: [Chuckles] You and me both.
Nina: I would like a scotch and a white wine, please. [Clears throat] So when you were a priest, did you preside over a lot of weddings?
Griffin: Yeah, my fair share.
Griffin: [Sighs] Look, I know I was only in Charlotte's life for a little while, but she is such a special girl. How's she doing?
Nina: Uh...it's been tough. You know, some days are good, some days are bad. But...you know. I thought the wedding might lift her spirits, right? You should say hi to her.
Nina: She likes you.
Griffin: Yeah, I would love to, but not if... it's gonna cause an issue with Valentin.
Nina: It's a small town. We should all learn to just get along. You know what I mean?
Nina: When you say hi, um... don't mention Claudette. We're trying to keep her mind off of her mother.
Griffin: Wait. Claudette hasn't been in touch with her?
Nina: You don't know?
Griffin: I don't. [Chuckles] I don't know what?
Nina: Oh, wow. Um... I really shouldn't say anything. It's a wedding. It's a festive occasion.
Griffin: Nina, what's -- what are -- what are you talking about? What happened to Claudette?
Nina: Uh... Claudette is dead.
Sam: Jason's not here.
Elizabeth: Good. This will be an easier conversation to have without him.
Sam: Um, I don't -- what's so important?
Alexis: Hmm. "Step four... make a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves." Yeah. [Remembers]
Julian: Right now, you're in the grip of something so fierce that it's affecting your judgment.
Alexis: I'm not hallucinating. I'm not having some fantasy. These are my memories, and they're real. I killed Tom Baker. [Drops book then slaps it]
Sam: Okay, well, obviously, the world's gonna spin off its axis if you don't tell me what you came here to say, so you might as well just say it.
Elizabeth: Franco's in trouble.
Ava: What have you done to Julian?
Alexis: You know what? You don't get to just barge into my house.
Ava: Alexis, where's my brother?!
Alexis: I have no idea.
Ava: Oh, come on. Don't stonewall me. I'm the only person who knows about this twisted arrangement you have with Julian. He's not responding to my texts. He's not answering my calls. Something has happened to him. Trust me. A sister knows.
Olivia: Of course, I can spare a moment or two for you, Julian. After all, if we can't make time for family, for whom can you make time?
Julian: So you're done avoiding me?
Olivia: You feeling neglected, Julian? I'd be a fool not to keep you at arm's length after you tried to assassinate me all those years ago. You don't want to talk about the past. Let's talk about the future.
Olivia: Yours! Alexis'... and Jason Morgan's.
Nina: I'm sorry to be so blunt. I'm so sorry. I didn't know how else to tell you. Um... I know she was important to you.
Griffin: What happened? What happened? [Clears throat]
Nina: Listen... we hardly even know each other. I really don't think I should be the one to tell you. You should -- you should get this straight from Dante and Lulu. They know as much as I do.
Griffin: Dante and Lulu are celebrating their best friend's wedding. I don't want to ruin their evening. Nina, please.
Nina: She drowned.
Griffin: But she was -- she was an excellent swimmer.
Nina: Well, she drowned in a river. That's what I was told. I'm so sorry. The Canadian authorities, they said it was a suicide, that she killed herself.
Julian: This ends now.
Olivia: [Laughs] How's that?
Julian: Jason is my daughter's husband. Now, I may not like him much. That doesn't mean I'm gonna kill him. I'm not gonna do that to Sam, you understand?
Olivia: As you wish. We'll just have to move on down the list. [Sighs] Sam, Lucas... [Sighs] But not itty-bitty Leo.
Julian: Yeah, I know you poisoned my son, Liv. Cut it out.
Olivia: Oh, don't be ridiculous! He was never in any danger. Those were sugar pills. What do you think I am, a monster?
Sam: If Franco's in trouble, I'm sure he's earned it.
Elizabeth: Okay, under any other circumstances, I would not --
Sam: There are no other circumstances. None that I would ever want to hear about what Franco did. It's all I can do to tolerate him for the sake of keeping peace with you.
Elizabeth: Okay, okay. All right. Let's -- let's take Franco off the table and for one second imagine I'm here about someone else, someone who, if you don't step in to help, may be forced to pay for something they didn't do.
Alexis: Julian's not here.
Ava: Should I check the back yard, look for a newly dug grave?
Alexis: I have no idea where he is. Do you have a message?
Ava: Oh, no. I'll wait.
Ava: He and I have important business to discuss.
Alexis: Which I don't want to hear anything about. So if you must stay, fine, just stay out of my way.
Ava: Well, I am a guest. It is customary to offer a guest a drink. Oh! Look! Cooking sherry. Mmm!
Alexis: I was gonna pour it out.
Ava: Oh, come on, Alexis. You don't have to pretend with me.
Alexis: Pretend what?
Ava: If you were gonna pour this out, it would be in the kitchen, next to the sink... not on the coffee table. It's okay. Go on. Pour yourself a glass. I'm not gonna stop you. I'm not even gonna report you to Julian. Well... as long as you promise not to run him over again.
Alexis: You know what, if you'd like to have some, knock yourself out. I'm not drinking.
Ava: On the wagon, eh? Good luck with that.
Spinelli: Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for Maxie and Nathan to take the floor for the first time [Singsong voice] As husband and wife. [Laughs]
[Acoustic guitar music plays]
Singer: Stolen away like jasmine and rain I am on your lips you are mine to disappear with a thousand kisses from you a thousand ways and it feels like a Sunday afternoon
Charlotte: Maxie looks so pretty.
Valentin: I've w-w-waited so long for this.
Anna: No! Stop!
André: True love is a thing to behold, isn't it?
André: Are you all right?
Anna: Yeah. Just thinking about the past.
Julian: As soon as Ned said that babysitter had no idea where that pill bottle came from, I knew it was you.
Olivia: Then you should have known I would never hurt a child.
Julian: Really? Well, I think Anna Devane might have something to say about that, since it was you who made her miscarry Duke Lavery's baby.
Olivia: Don't ever say that bitch's name to me again. The point is that I could have. I wouldn't have, but I could have... harmed your child. And whose fault would that have been? The way I see it, it would have been yours, because I gave you a job to do, and you're not doing it. You're leaving me very unpleasant choices.
Julian: Listen to me. If you're unhappy with my job performance, you come to me. You leave my family out of it.
Olivia: I will get my revenge, brother... eventually. But for now, I have other uses for you.
Julian: Well, it's not gonna be killing Jason Morgan. I can promise you that.
Olivia: Do you understand that he is this close to finding out who I am? I simply cannot have that. Until I am ready to stage my grand re-entrance into Port Charles, I can't think of any other way, except for Jason Martin to vanish. Poof!
Julian: If I kill Jason Morgan... you might as well turn yourself in. Otherwise, you will be the next one to go.
Sam: It's my experience that Franco is usually guilty of what he's accused of, and he's never paid for what he's done.
Elizabeth: It's different this time.
Elizabeth: The police think Franco killed Tom Baker.
Sam: Tom Baker?
Elizabeth: Yes. The man who raped me when I was a teenager. He was recently paroled, and Franco was certain he was gonna come after me again.
Sam: Okay, then, Franco killed him before he could.
Elizabeth: No, no. He -- he didn't do it. It was someone else, and Franco knows who.
Sam: Then he should pitch this idea to the police. I don't know why you're telling me any of this. Why did you come here?
Elizabeth: Because Franco's trying to protect the real killer.
Sam: Okay. Okay, so you're looking for a PI. I'm not taking on new cases.
Elizabeth: Okay, Sam, listen to me. The person Franco is protecting is your mother.
Spinelli: Now it is time for the father -- father, father-ish -- the father-ish of the bride to bid his little girl adieu with a dance.
[Soft piano music plays]
Felicia: It's okay for you to cry. Everybody knows how much you love your girls.
Mac: Father-ish. Yeah, that's just like Spinelli. That's a new one. [Chuckles]
Maxie: You know I never cared what I called you. Uncle Mac, Dad, Mac. I always knew that you would be there for me. Always.
Mac: [Sniffles] All I ever wanted was to make you feel safe and loved and protected.
Maxie: I know that. I love you.
Mac: May I have this dance?
Maxie: I thought you'd never ask.
Emma: Uncle Mac is the best.
Robin: Yeah, he is.
Nathan: May I have this dance?
Dr. Obrecht: I would be honored. You've made me very happy.
Dr. Obrecht: Yeah. I never imagined I'd have a real relationship with you, much less witness the occasion of your wedding.
Nathan: Well... Mutter, let your imagination run. Many more occasions to share.
Dr. Obrecht: [Chuckles] Good.
Spinelli: Let's hear it for the father/bride, mother/groom dance.
[Cheers and applause]
Spinelli: So let me ask you guys a question. Why should they have all the fun? It's time to dance! Let's get funky!
[Dance music plays]
Sam: Franco said my mother killed Tom Baker?
Elizabeth: Okay, Franco told Kiki, who told me -- although he never referred to your mother by name.
Sam: Ugh! Okay, so this is all coming third-hand from Kiki.
Elizabeth: Franco told Kiki the only way he could clear his name is by turning in the real killer, but he wouldn't do that, because the woman in question is someone he knows. And he hurt someone she loves very badly in the past, and he doesn't want to bring any more pain to that family.
Sam: Okay, so from all that, you just chose my mother? Why not one of my sisters or Julian or my brother Danny? He's old enough to hold a knife. Why don't you blame him?
Elizabeth: I saw your mom at GH the other day, and she walked right past me in a complete fog. It was clear she had been crying, like she didn't have a clue.
Sam: Okay, so what?! She was crying. What does that mean?
Elizabeth: Sam, listen to me. I am not making this up. Franco is protecting your mother, and now he's disappeared, and you need to help him.
Alexis: So, Ava, you don't think I can stay sober?
Ava: No, I don't.
Alexis: Why is that?
Ava: Julian's still living here, right?
Ava: So that's how I know. Julian still talks about being in love with you. His goal is to restore you to the woman you were before he drove you to drink. But you and I... we know the truth, right? You're playing him for a fool. I mean, sure, you have to live with Julian. But what you get in return, it's so very important. You get his silence about your drinking. So everything that Julian is doing here, living here, covering for you, twisting your arm into sobriety, it's just his form of enabling.
Julian: You are right, though. Jason is close to figuring out your identity. But killing him isn't gonna preserve your anonymity. In fact, it's only gonna expedite how quickly you get caught. And Jason isn't flying solo. And his partner... is in-laws with the police commissioner, and it's a good bet he's keeping her in the loop, as is Jason with Sonny. So if we take out Jason, that's only gonna prove to everybody that he was on the right track. So if the police don't find you, trust me -- Sonny will.
Olivia: But Sonny will be in prison soon.
Julian: I wouldn't be so sure about that. See, uh, Sonny's beat a lot of charges over the years, and it's a pretty easy bet that he's gonna beat this one. Even if he doesn't, he has a long reach, even from Pentonville. So do you really want to make enemies with Sonny Corinthos?
Olivia: What's the alternative?
Julian: Well, you pin the car bomb on someone else. That way, Curtis and Jason have the resolution they need, and the police and Sonny are off your scent.
Olivia: Who did you have in mind?
Anna: Oh, my gosh. You are a much better dancer than your brother.
Mac: Well, you're not the first person to tell me that.
Felicia: So, Anna tells me that you're an archeologist.
André: Um, it's a hobby. I'm an amateur.
Felicia: Oh. Well, I have a story for you about an Aztec treasure. [Chuckles]
Nina: Your vows were lovely. They were beautiful.
Nathan: Thank you.
Nina: My baby brother is all grown up.
Dante: [Sighs] Having a good time?
Lulu: You think she's okay?
Dante: Yep. I think she's totally fine.
Lulu: I don't know how she could be. She just lost the only mother she's ever known. I just... wish I could be comforting her.
Dante: And you will be. We're gonna have the custody hearing soon.
Lulu: What if we lose?
Dante: We won't. So either way, we can't do anything about it right now, so why don't we enjoy our friend's wedding? Hmm?
Charlotte: Show me how to find my star, Papa. Where is Polaris?
Valentin: It is too cold for stargazing out here, love. Why don't we go back inside, huh? I think the bride's about to toss the bouquet.
Charlotte: I want to catch it!
Valentin: Yeah! I am as constant as the Northern Star, of who's true fixed rested quality there is no fellow in the firmament.
Griffin: You bastard. You killed her.
Valentin: I'm sorry. Have you been drinking, Father?
Griffin: Claudette was in your way, so you killed her. You murdered Charlotte's mother! Claudette promised she'd come back for Charlotte, and you had to stop that, right? You had to keep her away from Charlotte, so you killed her -- the only mother she ever loved, the only mother she ever had!
Griffin: This is why Claudette wanted me to be Charlotte's father, because you don't deserve that little girl! [Grunts]
Valentin: What did you say to me? What did you say about my little girl?! I'm sick of your preaching, Father. I'm sick of your whining, and I'm sick of you! Don't ever talk about my daughter. Don't mention her name. You are nothing to her. You got me? Just nod. Just nod.
Anna: What are you doing?! Get off him! Get off him! You bastard! You're such a vicious thug! He's a good man! You disgust me.
Valentin: Yeah. Th-that's what you've always s-s-said about me! [Breathing heavily]
Nathan: All right, you ready for this?
Maxie: Be nice.
Nathan: Okay. All right. All right.
Guests: Aww! Aww! Aww! Aww!
Maxie: Mm-hmm. Okay. It's my turn.
Nathan: Yeah? Okay. All right.
Maxie: I really just want to see you eat this many carbs.
Maxie: You picked it out.
Nathan: Come here. [Kisses Maxie]
Mac: Aww! That's sweet.
Guests: Aww! Aww! Aww!
Sam: Will you listen to yourself? You're so desperate to be with Franco, you'll believe any lie that he feeds you.
Elizabeth: If you would just consider the possibility --
Sam: My mom did not murder a man that she didn't know. Why don't you consider the possibility that Franco is telling you this to throw suspicion off himself?
Elizabeth: Do you know for a fact that your mother didn't know Tom?
Sam: I read about this online. I know that Tom Baker was murdered outside a dive bar. And I know that my mom isn't gonna murder some stranger outside of a dive bar. It's not her. I know her.
Elizabeth: You're wrong. You don't know her at all.
Alexis: You know, Ava, living with your brother monitoring my every move is no day at the beach.
Ava: Ah. It's still better than monitoring from your daughters, isn't it?
Ava: They're all that really matters. And who knows what might come to pass if they found out what you've been up to. And, sooner or later, they're gonna make you choose -- the booze or them.
Alexis: I've made my choice.
Ava: Hmm. It's still so easy to unmake. 'Cause you know. You know deep down that the longer Julian keeps your drinking a secret, the longer you have to perfect your tricks.
Alexis: What tricks?
Ava: New and innovative ways to drink and get away with it. You're not ready for sobriety, because your secrets are still safe. And as long as they are... the drinking will always be an option for you.
Olivia: Seems you've thought of everything.
Julian: So you're gonna give your blessing to my plan?
Olivia: It better work.
Julian: I know. Or it's my head.
Olivia: No. Not yours.
Julian: Yeah, I get it. Look, Liv. I promise you. This will work.
Olivia: It's interesting the lengths that you'll go to for Jason Morgan.
Julian: Well, I told you, my daughter loves Jason. And I've done enough to hurt Sam.
Olivia: I can see you really love your children and that you would do anything for them.
Olivia: I wish I knew what that felt like.
Julian: I'm sorry that things worked out for you the way they did. You know, I know you feel cheated.
Olivia: I was cheated. I was cheated out of love, having my own family. Everything that you got for yourself while I was on the other side of the world in exile.
Julian: [Sighs] Hey. Hey, you can still have those things. There's still time.
Olivia: [Exhales sharply] Maybe. There's far less time for the people who screwed me over and way past time for those people to pay for what they've done. I am now the queen of the Jerome family. And from now on, I'm calling the shots.
Alexis: You know what, Ava? You got a lot of nerve lecturing me about drinking, because I can't recall a time when I've ever seen you without a martini in your hand.
Ava: [Scoffs] I'm not gonna apologize for the occasional cocktail.
Ava: Hey. I've never driven out of town to some dive bar to drink myself blind and then run over a man in the parking lot.
Alexis: Here you go. Enjoy it. And you're wrong about me, Ava. You're wrong.
Ava: Okay. So then I guess I can expect you to kick Julian out and have a real heart to heart with your daughters soon, right?
Sam: So, first, you accuse my mother of killing Tom Baker, and now you're claiming to know her better than I do?
Elizabeth: All I'm saying is your mother hasn't been herself for a while. It's public knowledge that Julian went on trial for trying to kill her, and he got acquitted, and your mom lost her license to practice law. If I were her, I'd be a mess. So are you gonna tell me you really haven't noticed anything?
Sam: [Sighs] No, I -- yeah, I... no, I haven't. She's gone through a rough patch. That doesn't make her a murderer. I think it's pathetic that you're so lovestruck that you're willing to sell these lies to clear Franco's name.
Elizabeth: Okay, I-I didn't only come here on Franco's behalf. I like your mom, Sam. And if she did kill Tom Baker, then I'm sure she was only trying to defend herself like I tried to defend myself when he raped me.
Ava: Ah! Finally!
Julian: What are you doing here?
Ava: I have been trying to reach you since yesterday.
Julian: [Sighs] Where's Alexis?
Ava: Swilling hand sanitizer.
Julian: You know what? That's not funny.
Ava: It's a little funny. Hey. I left you a message, you didn't call me back.
Julian: Yeah, well, I've been a little busy.
Ava: As have I. In fact, I got a little visit from Sam. She accused me of being behind the bomb that killed Morgan.
Julian: No, she's wrong.
Ava: Yeah, no kiddin'. But she does seem certain that there's a new player on the scene. Somebody who's targeting you and Sonny, both -- a woman. So who is it, Jules? And just what the hell kind of trouble have you gotten us into this time?
Olivia: I'm sorry, darling, that you had to witness that. I know you despise Julian every bit as much as I do. But my working with him is really only a means to an end. Eventually, I will make him pay for what he did to us -- to you, to me. And it will hurt.
Anna: What is wrong with you?! You're at a wedding! You use that as an excuse to beat up on Griffin? He's a doctor. He's been drinking. He doesn't know how to fight like you. He didn't go to the academy. He's not a professional. 'Cause you're a professional, aren't you? Aren't you? Does this make you feel powerful? Does it make you feel strong, like you're a big man or something? Just a twisted little... coward!
Maxie: Okay, single ladies. Who wants to get married next?
Robin: [Laughs] You know, when Emma was little and she used to catch the bouquets at weddings, I thought it was cute. And now she talks about boys all the time, so...
Mac: Well, now you know how I felt when you were talking about boys all the time. I wanted to send them away.
Felicia: It's a part of life, guys. All little girls grow up. Go, Emma!
Maxie: Okay, ready? And... one... two...
Robin: Look! David Hasselhoff!
Dr. Obrecht: [Gasps]
Robin: Good job! Good job.
Lulu: It's so cold out here. Ohh. Wish I had a blanket. Whoo! Thank you so much. Oh, my goodness. You're a lifesaver. Thank you. Hey. What are you doing in here? What? Look at this place! Oh, my goodness. There are so many towels and sheets. This would be a good place to make a fort to hide. You hiding from someone? I saw you run off. You looked pretty upset. I get upset sometimes, too. For me, the best thing is usually talking with someone about it. If you need to talk, I... I'll listen.
Charlotte: I miss my mommy.
Valentin: Did you just call me twisted?
Anna: Yes. Yes, you're twisted. And you're so dangerous. You attack a man who can't defend himself.
Valentin: When did you start to care about d-defenseless men? I never m-mattered to you. And you... I was invisible to you!
Anna: [Remembers] Oh, stop. What are you doing?
Valentin: It's your birthday. I tho-- I thought we could celebrate and... [Stammering] Just the two of-f us in private.
Maxie: All right.
Nathan: All right!
Dante: Have fun!
Mac: See you!
Dante: Have so much fun!
Ava: So who is it, Jules? Who's this mysterious Madam X? Do I know her?
Julian: Ava, I can't recommend highly enough that you stay out of this.
Ava: Well, that's all the confirmation I need to know that somebody's got you by the throat.
Julian: Yeah. Good. Enough. Come on. Let's go. Please.
Ava: Hey, well, Sam... come on. ...She has some kind of information, you know. And she's not being discrete about it. And if she keeps blabbing, she's bound to get your mystery woman's attention if she hasn't already.
Julian: [Sighs] I'll tell you what... I'll take care of my family, you take care of yours by staying the hell out of my business.
Ava: You got me scared, Jules.
Julian: Good. You should be.
Olivia: [to pictures of Duke] Remember how we used to dance? Our tangos set Port Charles on fire! We could have had a beautiful life together. Except for Julian.
Alexis: You're back.
Julian: Hey. Sorry I wasn't here when you got home.
Alexis: Where is she?
Julian: Ava -- she's gone. How'd the, uh, AA meeting go?
Alexis: Great. I stood in front of a bunch of strangers and almost confessed that I killed Tom Baker.
Julian: Well, you don't have to do that.
Alexis: Unless they arrest Franco.
Julian: Well, since he didn't do it, they aren't gonna have any hard evidence that he did.
Alexis: Well, there's certainly plenty of circumstantial evidence against him, not to mention his past. So what if they arrest Franco? Drunk, I suppose I could handle it. Sober, I have no idea what I'll do.
Julian: No matter what, you don't have to do it alone.
Sam: You think my mother was raped?
Elizabeth: I don't know. I honestly don't know. But if she is the one who killed Tom, then I'm sure she suffered at his hands first. And if that's the case, then you and I both know what she's going through. She's hurting, and she needs help. So, please, if you can't bring yourself to intervene for Franco's sake... just do it for your mother's.
[Door opens, closes]
Olivia: I really can't lay all the blame at Julian's feet. Anna did everything that she could to damage our love. [Remembers]
Anna: In spite of everything you've tried to do, I've remained silent. But when you use my daughter to further your own selfish, miserable ends...
Olivia: I don't know what you're talking about. I think Robin's adorable.
Anna: When you try to fill her head with your own sick perversions, you've gone too far.
Olivia: I was not sick.
Anna: You're demented.
Olivia: No, I'm not. Don't you ever call me that.
Anna: You slithered your way into my husband's bed, but I will never allow you to frighten my child. Never.
Olivia: You really shouldn't excite yourself like this. You're pregnant. It's not good for you or the baby.
Anna: The baby's fine. So is its father, and so am I. And I intend to keep it that way.
Olivia: And Anna will suffer... ...and suffer... and suffer.
Griffin: What the hell is going on?
Anna: [Remembers] I don't want to celebrate my birthday with you.
Valentin: Why not? Is it that -- that I'm in-- I'm inv-- can you not see me? Or can you just not bear to look at me?
Anna: Oh, I remember. [Exhales sharply]
Lulu: I know exactly what it feels like to miss your mom. It's just about the emptiest, loneliest feeling in the world. You still have a mom. It's me. I am your real mommy.
On the next "General Hospital" --
Nathan (to Maxie): It's the first night of the rest of our lives together.
Brad: Are you looking for Franco?
Elizabeth: Have you seen him?
Hayden (to Finn): I'm sure everything's okay.
Scott: Have you seen this woman? [Holds up picture of Alexis]
Charlotte (to Lulu): No! You're not my mommy!
Griffin (to André): Valentin murdered Claudette.
Valentin (to Anna): ??
