Jason: So, continuing on the 10-cent tour... [Chuckles] How did you enjoy your first night home, honey? Yeah? Did it feel good?  Being safe and surrounded by the people who love you?

Elizabeth: Here.

Franco: Oh, thank you.


Franco: You sure about this?

Elizabeth: Yes, I'm sure.

Franco: You got to be really sure.

Elizabeth: [Chuckles]

Franco: You do 'cause, I mean, this won't -- this won't be your place anymore. It'll be our place.

Elizabeth: Are you happy about this?

Franco: I'm so happy about it.

Elizabeth: [Laughs] The boys are gonna be really thrilled, especially Jake.

Franco: That's all I am to you, right, just a genius, just a -- just a babysitter/art therapy genius.

Elizabeth: You know it. Speaking of art therapy.

Franco: Yeah, I know. I'm sorry. I-I haven't been able to do anything with Jake, except finding this gap in the time that he was missing.

Elizabeth: Yeah, but that's huge. You found that, and I-I know you're gonna find more.

Franco: You have a lot of faith in me.

Elizabeth: I have that much confidence. In the meantime, Jake is happy and he's well-adjusted and...

Finn: Hayden.

Hayden: Huh? Oh, I wasn't sleeping. I was -- I was just resting my eyes. I'm -- I'm so, so sorry. I just...

Finn: [Breathing heavily]

Hayden: I just had to close my eyes for a second. Sorry. I'm sorry.

Finn: It's all good. [Sniffles] We made -- we made it.

Hayden: We made it?

Finn: [Sighs, sniffles] I-I mean with -- I made it through withdrawal. You -- you [Sniffles] You got me here. [Sighs]

Hayden: When did this happen?

Finn: When -- while you were sleeping. It went -- it went from bad to worse, and then it was just gone.

Hayden: Right.

Finn: [Sniffles] Now that the worst is over, you can -- you can let me go. [Sighs, sniffles]

[Knock on door]

Alexis: Hi.

Kristina: Hey, Mom.

Molly: Hey, we didn't think you'd be up.

Alexis: I'm -- I'm up, and I have coffee. Hey.

Molly: Oh, score.

Kristina: Ooh, nice. I got you.

Alexis: Hey, sweetheart.

Molly: Hey.

Alexis: How are you?

Molly: Good. We've barely seen you. How are you doing?

Alexis: Uh, as well as can be expected. You know, between the baby and being questioned by the police about Olivia Jerome taking me hostage and killing Julian, you know, I'm -- I'm busy.

Kristina: Yeah, about all that.

Molly: Mom, we're worried about you.

Alexis: Go get the coffee. I'm fine. I'm worried about you, actually. How are you handling everything with Morgan?

Kristina: In a seesaw between grief and pure rage.

Alexis: Hmm.

Kristina: That woman took my brother from me, and she almost took you and Sam and the baby. I hate her so much.

Alexis: We all hate her so much, but she's locked up in a mental ward for the rest of her life, which is way too good for her. So let's talk about something nice, shall we? Let's talk about that baby Scout. Beautiful girl, and she's fine.

Kristina: Yeah, no thanks to Olivia or Julian.

Molly: What is this?

Alexis: [Sighs]

Carly: Hey.

Sonny: Hey.

Carly: I was just, um, going for a walk to get a cup of coffee.

Sonny: Don't they have the same coffee at the hotel?

Carly: It's a different blend. So that's why I'm here. What are you doing here?

Sonny: Oh, I just came to see Kristina and tell her everything that's going on.

Carly: Well, I won't keep you.

Sonny: Well, she's -- she's not on schedule, so I'm not gonna be seeing her.

Carly: Oh. Well, I got to get my coffee, so...

Sonny: Wait, hey, hey. Do you have to go?

Finn: The best thing for me right now would be, um, a shower. You know, and I could [Sniffles] -- I could really use some fresh air. So, hey, if you cut me loose, we could go for a walk. [Sniffles]

Hayden: Yeah. It must be horrible being taped to a chair like a hostage.

Finn: [Chuckles] Yeah. It's a little like Stockholm Syndrome.

Hayden: I guess that means you like me too much to run if I let you go?

Finn: You know I do.

Hayden: Yeah.

Finn: So what do you say? [Sniffles] I think there's some s-scissors right over there.

Hayden: Yeah, yeah, I know where they are. It's just that you said this was gonna take a lot longer.

Finn: Yeah. [Sniffles] I didn't expect it to go as well as it did.

Hayden: Yeah, and you told me to keep you in this chair until we were sure that all the drug cravings were gone.

Finn: Yeah. And -- and they are.

Hayden: How long since you started feeling better?

Finn: Uh, uh, it's been, um... you know, you were sleeping. It's -- it's been a while.

Hayden: Really? Well, I wasn't asleep that long, not even two hours.

Finn: Yeah. And you're beautiful when you're sleeping. It's adorable. It's better than watching public television.

Hayden: Finn.

Finn: Hey, who cares how long it's been? It's just -- it's -- it's time to cut me loose.

Hayden: Maybe we should wait a little bit longer.

Finn: [Chuckles] No! Listen, I know -- I know what's good f-- I know what's good for me, all right? And what would be good for me is a shower -- a shower and then getting some sleep in my own bed.

Hayden: A minute ago, you said you wanted to walk.

Finn: Well, now I'm tired.

Hayden: Okay, I'll get you a neck pillow.

Finn: Hayden, please, just cut me loose.

Hayden: I think we should wait a little bit longer.

Finn: Listen, just let me go now!

Hayden: No, you made me promise --

Finn: Hayden, I don't want to do this anymore! All right?! Just let me go! Let me go!

Jason: I have to tell you, the best part about living here is the view. Yeah, you can see the entire harbor, and at night, you can see the stars. And I got to tell you, thanking your lucky stars has a whole new meaning to me. Hmm. When you're old enough, I'll explain to you how starlight helped your dad find you and your mom when you were in trouble. [Smooching]

Sam: It sounds like a serious conversation.

Jason: Nope. Just filling our baby in on a few things.

Sam: Oh, yeah?

Jason: Yeah. How you feeling?

Sam: Good. Rested. Thank you for taking the last feeding.

Jason: Oh, yeah. No problem. I think she's just about ready to go down.

Sam: Here, let me take her.

Jason: Got her?

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Jason: Oh.

[Knock on door]

Jason: Uh-oh.

Sam: Uh-oh. Somebody's here.

Jason: [Chuckles]

[Knock on door]

Curtis: Hey.

Jason: Hey. How you doing?

Curtis: All right. Sorry. I know it's early, but I just wanted to drop by and give you guys something.

Jason: Oh, thanks, man. Come on in.

Curtis: Yeah.

Sam: Hey.

Curtis: Well, I can see that your hands are full, so maybe I'll let you do the honors.

Jason: Oh, thank you. Oh, let's see what we got here.

Sam: What's in there?

Jason: Oh, look at that.

Sam: Aww!

Jason: [Chuckles]

Sam: They're beautiful. Thank you.

Curtis: Yeah, no problem.

Sam: Scout's gonna love it.

Curtis: Now, she is beautiful.

Sam: See her?

Curtis: Look at her.

Sam: [Chuckles]

Curtis: You know she looks just like mama.

Jason: Yeah, I know. Thank God, right?

Curtis: [Chuckles]

Sam: Stop.

Curtis: Wow, look at her. Hi, honey.

Sam: You want to hold her?

Curtis: Oh, we -- uh, I don't, uh...

Sam: Come on.

Curtis: Well, maybe a second.

Sam: Okay. Just be careful. Get her by the neck. Mm-hmm. Okay.

Curtis: Oh, hi. Oh, she's precious. Oh, I love her. She's adorable.

[Scout fusses]

Curtis: And...

Sam: Uh-oh.

Curtis: I think she just spit up on me. [Laughs]

Carly: I-I'm just gonna get my coffee.

Sonny: Yeah, but just stay -- you know, stay here, and w-we can sit around drinking coffee and talking.

Carly: We talked yesterday. We didn't get anywhere.

Sonny: Well, I disagree 'cause I -- underneath the anger, I saw that we still love each other.

Carly: I got to go.

Sonny: And there's hope.

Carly: There's hope. Hope for what, Sonny? Hope for what? Us? Huh? What?

Sonny: I bel-- I believe deep down inside that you want things to be better in the future... and I-I-I believe the same thing... starting right now.

Elizabeth: This space right here -- the time Jake spent with Helena -- it was blank last night.

Franco: Yes, it was.

Elizabeth: And now --

Franco: Now it is not.

Elizabeth: Jake must have come down here last night and -- and drawn this. How could I not have heard him?

Franco: You were asleep.

Elizabeth: I'm -- I'm a mother. I sleep like a ninja.

Franco: Right. I'll keep that in mind.

Elizabeth: But at least he's starting to remember things.

Franco: Yeah. Yeah, you're right. This could be some kind of big breakthrough.

[Footsteps descending]

Jake: Good morning, Mom.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Jake: Morning, Franco.

Franco: Hey, buddy.

Elizabeth: How are you feeling?

Jake: Better. I think I can go to school today.

Elizabeth: Oh, yeah? Let me see. Feel good. You're all clear.

Jake: Great. I'll get dressed.

Franco: Hey, um, great job adding to the drawing.

Jake: I didn't add to anything.

Elizabeth: You didn't draw this?

Jake: No. That wasn't me.

Elizabeth: Okay, uh, go upstairs and get dressed and tell your brothers breakfast will be ready in five minutes.

Jake: Okay.

Elizabeth: Okay. I-I don't think the other boys did this.

Franco: No, that was Jake. I mean, kids' drawings all look a little similar, but Jake definitely drew this scarecrow.

Elizabeth: So do you think he was lying?

Franco: No, I don't know. M-maybe he -- he doesn't remember doing it.

Elizabeth: Like he was sleepwalking?

Franco: Or it's just some kind of repressed memory. Either way, Jake definitely had to get this figure out on this page.

Elizabeth: I think it's time we bring Jason in on this.

Jason: Look, I'm sorry about that, but, uh, I think it means she likes you.

Curtis: Oh, man. I'm sure this is a blessing in some cultures, man.

Jason: Sure it is.

Curtis: [Chuckles] Man, Lord knows I could use all the luck I can get.

Jason: Uh-oh. Any particular reason?

Curtis: Yeah, well, I got a meeting with Jordan, and, uh, maybe, possibly, she's going to, uh, invite me to join the PCPD.

Jason: Wow, you know, happy for you.

Curtis: You don't seem happy.

Jason: If you want to be a cop, be a cop. I don't care, but, uh, you're carrying a badge, we're not working together.

Curtis: Yeah, yeah, I've been thinking about that, too. [Sighs]

Jason: Okay, well, think of the bright side. You won't be doing any dumpster diving any time soon.

Curtis: Rat-infested dumpster diving.

Jason: Yeah, breaking into any crypts.

Curtis: Yeah, thank God. You know, strangely, though, man, I'm kind of gonna miss all that stuff. I mean, not that specifically.

Jason: Yeah, I know what you mean.

Curtis: But you feel me.

Jason: I got it. Yeah.

Curtis: Hmm. You know, we did start off kind of -- kind of shaky, right?

Jason: You broke into Sonny's office, man.

Curtis: Small detail, brother.

Jason: Yeah, well, we ended up making a good team.

Curtis: Yeah. Yeah, we did. Take care, man.

Jason: All right, well, thanks for stopping by. I'll tell you what, uh, you find yourself in trouble, you can, you know, give me a call.

Curtis: I'll call a cop.

Jason: Hey, keep my number just in case.

Curtis: Yeah.

Jason: Hey, good to see you.

Curtis: Hey.

[Door closes]

Sam: Everything okay?

Jason: Yeah, yeah. I got to say it's strange, but I think I'm gonna miss that guy.

Alexis: [Clears throat] So what do you think?

Kristina: I'm sorry, Mom. I don't believe a word of it.

Alexis: Okay, that's fair. Why not?

Kristina: Because my brother's dead, and we're all dealing with the pain of that loss. And it's indirectly because of Julian.

Alexis: Well, we can certainly blame him for a lot, but not that.

Kristina: I'm not saying it's his fault that Morgan took his car, but this letter, which is taking Molly forever to read -- are you memorizing it?

Molly: I'm almost finished.

Kristina: [Sighs] Whatever. Julian pretends like all he was trying to do was protect you, but he knew his lunatic sister was in town for months. He should have warned you, and then you could have defended yourself.

Alexis: Yes, he should have, and maybe he thought it was too big of a risk.

Kristina: See, one letter, and you're already defending him.

Alexis: I'm not defending him, sweetie. I'm -- I'm just open to the possibility that there -- there could be something more, that's all.

Kristina: Even if he knew he was being watched, it's not like we have cameras installed all over the house, do we? I mean, he could have found a way to warn you before he dragged you off at knifepoint. I mean, we have sticky notes. I --

Alexis: Okay! I'm not arguing with you. I see your point. [Sighs]

Kristina: I know that you loved Julian, but that man was a lot of things, including a murderer and a liar. I -- and that letter -- I think it just proves that we're better off without him.

Alexis: Well, don't hold back.

Kristina: That's how I feel.

Alexis: Okay, well, how I feel is I want to just know if that letter is true or not. Molly. Do you agree with your sister?

Molly: Mom, you know I've had my doubts about Julian.

Kristina: Doubts? You're the president of "I hate Julian, and I'm glad he's dead" club.

Molly: Okay, thank you. But when he wrote this letter, he did it knowing that it was for you to read after he died, and that kind of makes me think --

Kristina: No.

Alexis: What?

Molly: Maybe it's true.

Alexis: What if it is true?

Kristina: No, you want to believe a different concept entirely.

Alexis: If the letter is true, then I'll have regret.

Molly: Regret over what?

Alexis: That he died before I could tell him that I still love him.

Hayden: Finn, you -- you need to listen to yourself, okay? You're -- you're shouting at me. You're sweating. You're anxious. You're miserable.

Finn: Don't tell me how I am. I know how I am.

Hayden: Clearly, you're still detoxing.

Finn: I don't care! I don't want to do this anymore! Let me go!

Hayden: Okay, you just need to calm down and take a deep breath, okay?

Finn: Don't! Don't act like you know what you're doing. I told you everything that would happen, and now I want it to be done with.

Hayden: No, I'm not letting you out of that chair, okay, not until you can act like a normal person.

Finn: What are you doing?! Who are you texting?!

Hayden: What? I-I need to make sure that we can get through this.

Finn: You're turning me in?

Hayden: No, no. I'm not.

Finn: You're turning me in. I thought I could trust you. I thought you loved me!

Hayden: I do love you. That's why I'm doing this.

Finn: No, no. You don't love me. You don't love me. You're just gonna use me, and you're gonna throw me away!

Hayden: Use you? What could I possibly use you for?

Finn: Nothing! You're not gonna use me for anything 'cause I won't let you! I won't let you! [Crying] I won't let you. Aah!

Sonny: Even running into each other here is an opportunity for us to think about what's happened.

Carly: I don't want to have that conversation.

Sonny: Okay, wait, look, we can do this, is what I'm saying. We just got to try.

Carly: Okay, you know what, Sonny, when we're together like this, I think, "Of course. Of course the answer should be yes. Of course, we should be able to move past this. We've already been through so much."

Sonny: Yes, we have.

Carly: Yes, and we both have made mistakes. I know that. Good or bad, right or wrong, we made mistakes because we had our reasons. I know nothing happens in a vacuum, and I think, "Yes, we can rebuild." We should be able to.

Sonny: Okay, then let's try. Let's do this.

Carly: You lied t--! [Softly] You lied to me when I was starting to trust you. And I get that you had your reasons, and I get that you regret it. But that's something I can't move past right now. I need more time.

Sonny: How much time?

Carly: What?

Sonny: How much time?

Carly: I don't know. How -- how long did it take for you to be honest with me? You never were. If I hadn't figured it out for myself, you would have never told me what happened.

Sonny: I can't -- I can't -- I'm not doing this. I can't do it.

Carly: What?

Sonny: Enough.

Sam: So Curtis is gonna be a cop?

Jason: Yeah, he seems to think so.

Sam: Aww, that's too bad that you have to break the team up. You know, I don' think they would have caught my Aunt Olivia without the two of you.

Jason: Yeah. You okay with her going into D'Archam?

Sam: Um...yeah... I think that place is perfect for her, and it saves us the pain of a-a trial. She's a complete lunatic. She's not gonna get out any time soon. And now that my father is dead, I think it's -- it's good. It's gonna give my mom a chance to heal.

Jason: What about you?

Sam: What about me?

Jason: Well, you haven't said much about Julian since he died.

Sam: There really isn't much to say, Jason. He's my biological father, and that is it. The only relationship he had with me was about manipulating my mother. I'm not gonna miss any of that. You know what I am happy about?

Jason: Hmm?

Sam: That Scout gets to have a dad she loves, and she knows that you're gonna love her back. You're not gonna lie to her or manipulate her. You're just gonna protect her and cherish her. That makes me very happy for my little girl.

Kristina: Okay, first of all, Julian knew you loved him.

Alexis: Why do you think that?

Kristina: 'Cause the man was a total narcissist. He assumed you loved him 'cause how could you not?

Molly: Hey, Kristina.

Kristina: What, you deny it?

Molly: No, but you don't have to be so harsh.

Kristina: I'm being honest. Mom, after everything that Julian has done to you and done to us, how could you possibly think that you loved him?

Alexis: I don't know. But I do because I saw another side to him. Molly agrees.

Molly: Well, I mean, all -- all that I said was that the letter might be true. But are you really sure that all of these explanations add up? You told me a long time ago that sometimes when we lose someone, we start to idealize them.

Alexis: I know you think that I'm creating some sort of revisionist history in my mind. I just want to believe that he loved me.

Kristina: Mom, you know who you sound like? Me when I used to talk about Kiefer. What if I had come to you after he spent months of beating the crap out of me and said, "You know what? I really think that I misunderstood him. I think he was just trying to protect me." What would you say?

Alexis: I'd say when things were good with Julian and me, I was happy, and I'm tired of not being happy. So now he's dead. It doesn't matter anyway, right? I'll just have to live with it.

Molly: Mom, we really need you to listen to us, okay, because we are worried about you.

Hayden: Okay, then, you need to calm down, okay? You're gonna hurt yourself.

Finn: No worse than you're hurting me, Hayden.

Hayden: No, you're hurting you. I'm trying to stop it.

Finn: I know who you were texting. I know. You were texting that guy Healy at Biospen, right?

Hayden: What? No.

Finn: Money. You want the money, don't you?

Hayden: What money? What --

Finn: You can't have it. The money that's for General Hospital. You can't have it. You can't steal it.

Hayden: I'm not stealing --

Finn: You're a liar and a thief! Ohh, why didn't I see it? How come I didn't see it?

Hayden: That's just -- that's just the drugs talking.

Finn: Why did I talk myself into believing in you?

Hayden: Okay, Finn. Okay, Finn, that's enough, okay?

Finn: I didn't see it. How did I not see it? You -- you told me yourself you blackmailed Nikolas. Why didn't I see this coming? Why did I trust you?

Hayden: Okay, Finn, you need to stop now. You need to stop.

Finn: You prey on people that are stupid enough to believe in you!

Hayden: Stop! Okay, just stop!

Finn: [Crying] I'm sorry. I don't even know what I'm saying. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. It's the drugs. It's the drugs talking. Please forgive me. Forgive me. Forgive me. Forgive me.

Hayden: Okay. Yeah. You okay? Finn. Finn.

Hayden: [Gasps] W-what are you doing? Let go of me! Let go of me!

Finn: Cut me loose. Please. Do it now.

Hayden: Let go of me. You're hurting me! Let go of me!

Finn: Do it now.

Hayden: Finn, let go of me! You're hurting me!

Curtis: Yo, man, let her go. What's wrong with you? Let her -- okay, let her go.

Hayden: [Sighs]

Finn: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

Hayden: I heard you the first time.

Curtis: Hey, when you sent me the text to meet you in the room in the Metro Court, I didn't know what to expect, but I sure didn't expect this.

[Telephone ringing]

Curtis: Ah, that should be security.

Hayden: Right. Right. [Sighs]


Hayden: Hello? Um, yeah, everything's fine. We just had a little mishap. I'm sorry. Thanks.

[Telephone beeps]

Curtis: [Sighs] Let me guess. Do-it-yourself detox?

Hayden: I need to swear you to secrecy.

Curtis: Consider me sworn. Now, was I right, or was I right?

Hayden: Yeah, I'm... I'm helping Finn detox from a pretty powerful drug.

Curtis: Well, I got one question for you. Have you lost your mind?

Sonny: I've apologized over and over again. I've begged for your forgiveness, and you won't have it.

Carly: I got to get to work.

Sonny: You don't think maybe you -- you should ask for my forgiveness?

Carly: For what?

Sonny: For leaving me when Morgan died?

Carly: I thought you were responsible.

Sonny: So did I. You know what kind of burden that is to carry, thinking you killed your own son, having that on -- on your shoulders? And you didn't -- you didn't even want to have any part of it.

Carly: I couldn't even look at you.

Sonny: Yes, because maybe you were too busy kissing on Jax.

Carly: When you were too busy having Nelle in our bed?

Sonny: Our bed that you weren't in it, right? Because you said -- you made it very clear -- you didn't want any part of me 'cause I was a-a-a low-life murderer... who killed his son.

Carly: I can't believe you're throwing this up in my face. I can't believe you're doing that right now.

Sonny: I'm -- no, no, no. What I'm trying to do is tell you that nobody's perfect, okay? We've hurt a lot of people, e-especially each other, and w-we both need forgiveness.

Carly: What you're trying to tell me is that you've been lying to me for months, and now I need to get over it on your timetable.

Alexis: There's no need to worry about me. I'm sad. You just have to let me be sad.

Molly: Well, the Julian situation isn't the only reason we're worried.

Kristina: No, but it's a big one.

Alexis: Okay, girls. What else do you have on your minds?

Molly: Have you been going to your AA meetings?

Alexis: No.

Molly: Well, I mean, you're so new in program. Shouldn't you be going a lot?

Alexis: Well, I would have if my sponsor didn't kidnap my daughter and leave her for dead in a snowbank where she had to give birth and then hold me hostage and then kill Julian. I just don't really have this urge to go to a 12-step program.

Molly: Well, after all that?

Kristina: Make the time, seriously. Anyone would want a drink after that.

Alexis: All right. I'll go to a meeting tomorrow.

Kristina: No, you can go to one today.

Alexis: Guys, you got to listen to me. I've been through a lot, and I'm gonna have to find a new sponsor, given that my last one was a homicidal maniac.

Kristina: Wait, so -- so try someone else. Go to a meeting. Meet a new sponsor.

Alexis: I love you both so much, but you have to understand I'm not on your timetable.

Molly: Mom, you know as well as we do that this is a really important time in your sobriety. I mean, you don't want things to go back to the way they were before, do you?

Elizabeth: Cameron, help Aiden on the bus.

Franco: Hey, have fun, boys, and -- and like learning stuff, too. Have fun while you're learning stuff.

Elizabeth: Bye.

[Bus departs]

Franco: You're really gonna call Jason right now.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I think I have to.

Franco: He's gonna yell at me, you know, for messing with his kid's already-tampered-with psyche. Hey, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: I can't believe I didn't remember this.

Franco: Didn't remember what?

Elizabeth: This is so much worse than I realized.

Alexis: You girls don't believe in pulling your punches, do you?

Kristina: Mom, I'm sorry if we offended you. We didn't mean to. We're just trying to help.

Alexis: No, no, it needed to be said. You said it. I heard it. I do not want to go back to the dysfunctional mess that I was when I was drinking, so thank you both for caring.

Molly: Of course, we care. We love you.

Alexis: And I love you and you. And if it makes you feel any better, I love myself.

Molly: Yes!

Kristina: Okay, now you're just getting sappy.

Molly: Kristina.

Kristina: I'm kidding.

Alexis: All right, all right, listen. I will go to a meeting. I know where there's one in 20 minutes.

Molly: And not to be pushy, but meetings really are the best place to meet a sponsor.

Alexis: Thank you, my darling, for your advice. I will get a sponsor tonight, hopefully one that isn't a deranged killer.

Kristina: It really is best when they aren't. I mean, hey, to each her own. [Chuckles]

Alexis: I am a very lucky mom to have you three as my daughters, because you care about me, and that will get me through all of it -- the letter, Julian -- all of it.

Kristina: Of course, you will.

Molly: Aw!

Alexis: All right, come here.

Molly: [Laughs]

Alexis: All right. I can still get my arms around both of you.

Molly: [Laughs]

Sam: This is really hard on my mom. You know, even before Julian died, I could tell that she was struggling. She was trying to forgive him. She was trying to make excuses and rationalize all the things that he's done.

Jason: Did you talk to her about it?

Sam: Yeah, I mean, like a good, supportive daughter, I-I-I told her that she was lying to herself, to accept the fact that Julian was never gonna be the man that she wanted him to be. The thing is, I think I pushed her too hard. I pushed her to face reality, and now she's afraid to confide in me, you know, and tell me how she's really feeling.

Jason: I hated Julian for a variety of reasons. The man lied to everybody, especially your mother, so why don't you try telling her the truth?

Sam: You -- you think I should just tell my mom how I really feel? Like, the truth-truth?

Jason: Well, I mean, come on. You love her. You support her. You're honest. What can you do?

Sam: [Groans] I don't know. The thing is, Julian had potential. He did. He could have been a good man. He had -- he had a chance. You know what, none of it matters. None of it matters. I'm actually really glad that he's never gonna be able to disappoint me again and again and again.

Jason: Okay, look... don't focus on the disappointment. Focus on that little girl over there and how lucky we are to have her. And then I think maybe you should try to focus on getting a little sleep. You know what I'm saying?

Sam: Yeah. Danny's gonna be up soon.

Jason: Yeah, and I will be here for him. Then we're gonna go over to the Quartermaines, and we're gonna play with Annabelle II!

Sam: Okay!

Jason: And you and -- you and Scout can get settled in, have a little peace and quiet.

Sam: If I haven't told you already, you're pretty wonderful. Thank you.

Jason: Thank you.

Elizabeth: The children's book Helena gave me.

Franco: "Jake's adventure."

Elizabeth: Do you remember the Jake in the story, when he ran into the old woman in the woods and they came to that clearing --

Franco: Yeah, right, there was a scarecrow, but -- but nothing happened that I remember. I mean, it was all pretty innocuous.

Elizabeth: Well, maybe to you and me, but this is Helena we're talking about. She could have built a dozen triggers into that book, and even though Jake has never seen the book, he knows the story. Not just the end of the story.

Franco: And it wasn't weird enough when he said the end of the book in, like, a trance.

Elizabeth: Helena planted the story deep down inside his subconscious.

Franco: We need to take another look at that book. We need to reread the part about the scarecrow.

Elizabeth: We need to reread the whole thing.

Sonny: After all this time, if -- if -- if you can't understand why, at the lowest point of my life, that would happen with Nelle, I don't know what else I can say to you.

Carly: My God, you're not listening to me at all.

Sonny: I -- what do you mean I'm not --

Carly: I hate what you did with Nelle. She is a lying tramp, and I don't care how drunk or grieving you were, you should have known better. But it's not about that, Sonny. It's about the lies that came afterward because I thought we were working our way closer to each other. I've never felt closer to you ever. And the whole time, you were keeping this secret from me.

Sonny: I told you why. I was trying to protect you, right?

Carly: Yeah, trying to protect me from what, from being hurt? Well, look, I'm hurt. I'm really hurt. And you've reached your limit. You tried being remorseful, but that didn't work, so now you're just gonna get mad at me. So all of this -- all of this pain, it's now all my fault?

Sonny: All I'm saying is that you've made a -- you've made a choice, and the choice is to push me away. If I can't do anything else to earn your forgiveness, then you can stop running 'cause I'm not gonna run after you anymore.

Hayden: Finn said that he looked into rehab, but given that he just signed a huge deal with this big pharmaceutical company, he can't let them or anyone in the medical community know that he's got a problem.

Curtis: All right, I get it. The guy's got a lot at stake, and if anyone found out, his whole life could be screwed up.

Hayden: Exactly.

Curtis: Okay, but I still think you're crazy by doing this alone.

Hayden: Well, you're probably right, but I can't involve anyone at the hospital, so this is on me. I have to help him kick this on his terms.

Curtis: Why you?

Hayden: Because I love him.

Curtis: Okay, I get that, but --

Hayden: What? What? Whatever you're gonna say, don't sugar-coat it. We're beyond that.

Curtis: Yeah. All right, real talk. Even if Finn does, uh, detox in the next few hours, and he makes it through with no cravings and no shakes and no behaviors like what just happened, it don't mean you're home free. You see, uh, detox is not the end of Finn's battle with addiction. Trust me. It's only the beginning.

Carly: So you're done. You're done running after me. You're...done trying to earn my forgiveness.

Sonny: You should be relieved because every time I try to make amends, it just -- it pisses you off.

Carly: I'm just trying to be clear. Are you saying our marriage is over?

Elizabeth: Okay, if I remember correctly, I think the scarecrow is in the -- the middle of the book.

[Doorbell rings]

Franco: Oh, you know what would be really creepy and weird is if that was actually Helena.

Elizabeth: Don't say that.

Franco: Why not? What, I'm just kidding.

Elizabeth: I'm sure it's my neighbor. She's bringing back my muffin pan.

[Door opens]

Elizabeth: Hey.

Jason: Hey. Uh, I just dropped Danny off over at the Quartermaines, and apparently Jake left this there last time he visited, so I said I'd bring it by.

Elizabeth: Oh, thanks. Hey, I was just gonna call you. I-I want to show you something. Come in.

Jason: Okay, what's going on? [Clears throat] Is -- what is this doing out? I thought you said you were gonna keep this under lock and key.

Elizabeth: I was, but I --

Jason: And, what, did Jake draw this? What is -- I don't understand.

Elizabeth: Okay, that's -- that's what I wanted to talk to you about.

Jason: Okay, I'm here. [Chuckles] What's going on?

Kristina: Oh, my goodness, she's so gorgeous. I can't stand it.

Molly: Oh, yes, she is. Aren't you?

Sam: Wait, wait, where's Mom? I thought she was coming with you guys. What?

Molly: Um, Julian left Mom a letter.

Sam: Yeah, I know. She told me.

Kristina: Did you read it?

Sam: No. Why, did you read it? What did it say?

Molly: I think Mom should probably tell you that herself.

Kristina: I-it was -- a load of crap.

Molly: Intense.

Sam: Okay, so why don't one of you call her, tell her to come over, and we can discuss whatever Julian put in that letter and help her deal with it?

Molly: Well, actually, Mom is dealing with it. She's on her way to an AA meeting.

Sam: Oh, that's right. Oh, I completely forgot with everything that's been going on with me.

Kristina: We talked to her.

Sam: Oh, you did?

Kristina: And the good news is that Mom is taking the right steps to take care of herself.

Sam: Did you hear that, Scout? [Laughs] Your grandmother's taking care of herself. And she knows that we love her so, so, so much. [Laughs]

Molly: Isn't she pretty?

Kristina: Ooh!

Alexis: [Sighs as she enters her home] [Locks door & closes all the blinds then takes out a bottle of alcohol & stares at it]

[Ominous music plays]

On the next "General Hospital" --

Sonny (to Laura): Nelle is working for Valentin Cassadine?

Carly (to Sam): I think my marriage is over.

Scott (to Lucy): If you don't like the prospect, perhaps you should reconsider.

Ava (to Alexis): What happened here?

Jason (to Elizabeth): If Franco's gonna spend so much time here, then maybe Jake shouldn't.
