Nelle: [Chuckles]

Nina: It's official. Welcome to Crimson.

Nelle: Thank you so much for giving me this chance.

Nina: Oh, my gosh. Thank you for taking the job, honestly. I mean, the chaos level since Maxie left is up to, like, 11.

[Telephone rings]

Nina: Exactly.

Nelle: Nina Reeves' office. Please hold.

[Telephone rings]

Nelle: Nina Reeves' office. Please hold. Thank you for holding. How may I help you?

Spencer: See Kelly's hasn't changed their menu at all.

Laura: Well, why would they? Kelly's is a Port Charles institution.

Spencer: Well, one can only consume so many BLTs.

Laura: After the past 11 months in France, a BLT will be a nice change of pace for you.

Spencer: I've developed a taste for tartin au fromage...

Laura: Oh.

Spencer: ...While I've been gone.

Kevin: Well, I'm sure they'll make you an open-faced cheese sandwich if you like.

Spencer: No, no, no. I'll make do from sandwiches to sleeping arrangements.

Laura: Spencer! You have a very nice bedroom at Kevin's house with a private bathroom.

Spencer: I know, and it's very kind for Kevin to accommodate me, but --

Laura: Yes, very kind.

Spencer: But I still long for my own home, the one that Uncle Valentin cruelly stole from me and my father. If I were Charlotte, [Scoffs] I would be ashamed to call him father.

Dante: Hey, what's up? Did you have any luck?

Both: Ta-da!

Dante: Ahh! Thank you!

Lulu: Oh, don't thank me. You have to thank Charlotte.

Dante: You found my phone? Well, thank you. Where was it?

Charlotte: In Rocco's Lego bin.

Lulu: He actually put that bin back in the playroom closet for once, which explains why we couldn't hear it ringing.

Dante: Well, thank you, Charlotte. You're a life saver.

Charlotte: You're welcome.

Dante: [Chuckles]

Charlotte: Lulu says this is where you work.

Dante: Yeah, this is. That's my desk over there. This is the squad room.

Charlotte: This looks like the place where Papa made his video for me.

Lulu: Oh, you know what? Actually, Charlotte, this is where he made the video.

Charlotte: But Papa's not a policeman. Why was he here?

Amy: A picture?

Nathan: Like my picture?

Quinn: Mm-hmm. It's the best sales tool we've got.

Amy: But the whole idea behind "Ask Man Landers" is that he's anonymous. No one knows who he is.

Quinn: No, but they know what he looks like. Look, traffic on the website spiked as soon as his picture went up. The idea of getting relationship advice from a great-looking guy appeals across all markets. And we want to approach the book that way, as well. Whether the customer is surfing the web or walking into a brick-and-mortar retailer, those eyes command attention. And attention turns to sales. So, let's talk concept, okay?

Nathan: There's nothing to talk about. We can't use my picture.

Jason: Look, I hope you get this message, man. There's a guy named Garvey. Apparently he's part of Julian's old crew, and he might be after you, and --

[Cell phone beeps]

Jason: And it cuts out for the second time.

Sam: Okay, well, maybe his cell's off or he's out of range or something.

Jason: Yeah. And if your dad's telling the truth, that means he's gonna have no idea if Garvey's after him.

Carly: [Chuckles] Oh! Oh, my gosh! I don't know why we bothered to run from the beach. We're soaked. We should have stayed for a swim. That would have been fun.

Sonny: No, no, we should have just gone skinny dipping. I mean, it would...

Carly: Oh, that's not gonna happen.

Sonny: We've done it a thousand times.

Carly: We're not doing it this time.

Sonny: All right.

Carly: [Chuckles]

Sonny: Where you going?

Carly: I'm gonna go find something dry to put on.

Sonny: No, no, you look great just like that.

Quinn: As a first-time author, you are in no position to make demands.

Nathan: I'm not an author. I...

Quinn: What are you talking about? We are publishing your book.

Amy: Uh, what my client means is he thinks of himself as a regular guy who has a knack for giving advice.

Quinn: So he -- he put up his own blog.

Amy: What better way to reach people, right? He's too modest to admit it, but those looks can be intimidating. [Chuckles] People feel more comfortable approaching him from behind a computer keyboard. Nobody who writes into "Ask Man Landers" uses their real name. Anonymity benefits both people.

Nathan: Which brings us back to the picture. I don't want my face on the book.

Quinn: But your face is the book.

Nathan: No. [Sighs] "Ask Man Landers" doesn't have anything to do with my face. It's about offering people smart, supportive advice. It's gonna sell because of what's inside it.

Quinn: Well, the customer can't see what's inside if they don't pick it up in the first place. Your face is the brand. So no picture, no publisher.

Nina: Those are the unsolicited submissions for articles. Um, just look them over, see what's interesting, flag it, and then pass it along to me.

Nelle: I've never done anything like this before.

Nina: Yeah, I know. It's, uh, it's a lot of work. It's a lot of work. But the thing is, is look it over and, uh, look at the subject matter, if it's clearly written. And it's like this. If you see an issue of Crimson somewhere and you pick it up and read the article, would it hold your interest? If the answer is yes, then give it to me, okay?

Nelle: Wow. Nina, there are a lot of these.

Nina: Yeah, it's been piling up since Maxie left.

Nelle: Okay, well, I better get started.

Nina: Okay. Did Charlotte make that for you?

Nelle: Oh, yeah. How'd you guess?

Nina: She made one for me, too.

Charlotte: Why was he here? Why didn't he come to say goodbye before he left?

Dante: You know what? Hey, why don't you, uh, why don't you come step over here in my office for one second. Hop up here on this desk. Boom. Uh, do you remember what happened at the Nurses' Ball?

Charlotte: Jake had a magic trick. It was silver with lights and a picture of a lion. Everyone was scared, and we had to leave, and then someone hurt Papa.

Lulu: You're right. And after all that was over, your father had to come here to answer some questions. So he did make the video here.

Charlotte: Why didn't he come to say goodbye?

Dante: Well, there's some other people who want to know all about Jake's magic trick also. And he had to go with them to answer some more questions.

Charlotte: And when he's done, he'll come to me like he promised.

Jason: You know what? I should call Max, give him a heads up.

Sam: No, no, no. Max is gonna turn it right back around on you. Look, I'm -- I'm sorry. I love Max, but he can't grasp the fact that you're out of the business.

Jason: I don't know what's going on here, but I don't think it's gonna hurt to give him a call to tell him to pass on a message to Sonny.

Sam: Jason, d--

[Knock on door]

Jason: Hold that thought.

[Door opens]

Michael: Hey. Is this a good time?

Jason: Always a good time. Come in. Good to see you. Good to see you.

Michael: Hey.

Sam: Hi.

Michael: Oh, I, uh, I just had a visit with your daughter. I-I didn't get to hold her, though. Monica got first dibs, and she wouldn't share.

Sam: How about that? How's Danny?

Michael: Danny is good. He's, uh, with Annabelle the second. They got booted outside because they knocked over a vase.

Jason: Oh.

Sam: Oh, no.

Michael: No, it's fine, it's fine. It was an ugly vase, so we were all kind of secretly relieved.

Jason: What's up, man? What's going on?

Michael: Well, I have some paperwork for you to sign. We are reorganizing the family trust, repositioning some of the assets. I sent you an e-mail with all of the details.

Jason: Yeah, okay, whatever you say. I trust you. Just show me where to sign. Actually, this is good timing. I've been trying to get ahold of your father, but his phone keeps dropping out of service.

Michael: That's because he's not in Port Charles. He and my mom went down to the island. It's terrible cell reception. So if you want to get ahold of them, just try the landline.

Jason: Huh.

Michael: Is it important?

Jason: Could be.

[Rain pattering]

Carly: Oh, that's so sweet. You know how much I love a fire here.

Sonny: Yes, I do.

Carly: Even though it's not remotely cold enough for one.

Sonny: Well, that's the perks of owning the place. Um, you get whatever you want. So if you want a fire, you have a fire. And extra light is good just in case the power goes out.

Carly: That still happens here?

Sonny: Well, I bought this generator that cost a fortune, and it doesn't make a difference. If it rains, we lose power.

Carly: Wow.

Sonny: I should probably light some candles. Um...

[Thunder cracks]

Carly: [Gasps]

Sonny: Whoa.

[Thunder cracks]

Carly: Um, sorry. Just sometimes the thunder sounds like it's so close here. Doesn't it?

Sonny: Something about the way that the clouds get trapped against the mountains. It's beautiful, ain't it? There goes the lights.

Carly: Wow. How long is this storm supposed to last?

Sonny: Just a couple hours. I mean, tomorrow morning by the latest.

Carly: You said that to me once, and we were trapped here for like four days. Do you remember that?

Sonny: That was -- that was a hurricane.

Carly: [Chuckles] Yeah, but I asked you, "how long is this storm gonna last?" And you said, "Oh, just a couple hours." [Laughs]

Sonny: Well, excuse me, weather expert.

Carly: You know, that was one of my favorite times here. It was. It was just the four of us, and we would rave the kitchen for supplies. We cooked most of our meals here at this fire. Remember that?

Sonny: I did most of the cooking.

[Both chuckle]

Carly: Well, excuse me. It's really difficult to, uh, make frozen microwave pizza when there's no power.

Sonny: Well, you know what? I... I loved that time, too. Remember it was just the four of us, no interruptions, no business. And we taught the boys how to play poker.

Carly: Yes! [Chuckles] Michael learned like that, and Morgan, he just couldn't figure it out, the poor kid.

Sonny: He was 4 years old. What do you want?

Carly: I know. But you know what? He got the hang of it. He did. And he wanted to beat you so bad. He would go all in even if he had the worst hand. I really thought that you -- you were gonna fold so he could take it all. [Chuckles]

Sonny: I-I almost did. I just -- I thought I was teaching him a lesson. Remember I told him. I said, "Morgan, I don't want you gambling." And I should have stuck to that. I should have...

Carly: Sonny, it's okay. I know.

Sonny: I'm gonna go... I'm gonna go light the rest of the candles.

Nathan: Quinn, look, I appreciate you taking the time to come down here and meet with u-- me, um, but I just -- I don't think this --

Amy: Could I have a moment to confer with my client?

Nathan: Okay.

Amy: Thanks.

Nathan: Amy. Look, I'm sorry.

Amy: Don't be sorry. Just let me --

Nathan: I want to help your brother.

Amy: And I appreciate that so much.

Nathan: I can't let her put my face on a book cover.

Amy: I get that. I do. And I have a fix.

Nathan: No, there is no fix. I'm a police detective, okay? And I can't do my job with people running around out there thinking I'm this "Ask Man Landers" guy, okay? So, look, we'll go back in there, we'll tell her that you're the one who writes all of the stuff and that it's your advice that they want to publish.

Amy: [Sighs] There's a way we can both get what we want. Just trust me.

Nathan: [Sighing] I don't know.

Amy: Please. You know how important this deal is. Just let me try to save it.

Nathan: Okay. Okay, as long as my face doesn't end up on a book cover.

Amy: Oh, it won't. I promise. [Clears throat] [Sighs] I have talked it over with my client.

Quinn: And?

Amy: He'll do the photo shoot.

Quinn: [Chuckles]

Nathan: Wait.

Quinn: Excellent.

Spencer: Has anyone been back to Wyndemere after Uncle Valentin stole it?

Laura: [Sighs] Uh, could we talk about something more pleasant? I know. Since you didn't get to go to the museum with Hayden, we could go later this afternoon, if you like, to see the exhibit.

Spencer: Well, I'd like to address the issue of my stolen inheritance first.

Laura: Spencer, I've tried to tell you. It wasn't stolen.

Kevin: Um, may I try to explain?

Laura: Please.

Kevin: Before your grandfather, Mikkos Cassadine, died, he drew up a will, and it stated that if either of his legitimate sons, Stavros or Stefan, died, which they did, then the entire Cassadine estate would go to his illegitimate son, Valentin.

Spencer: Then what about me? What about my father?

Kevin: I'm sorry, Spencer, but you lost your claim when Stavros died. None of us realized it, but the estate has always belonged to Valentin.

Spencer: Then why didn't he claim it before?

Laura: That's because of Helena. Mikkos left instructions not to publish his will until after Helena died.

Kevin: Now, the will has been probated. That means it's been reviewed by the courts, both in the US and in Greece. It's authentic.

Spencer: Well, it doesn't matter anyway. Valentin's going to prison. Then what's gonna happen to Wyndemere after he goes to prison?

Laura: I don't know, honey. Nina is Valentin's wife, so I guess probably she will decide.

Nina: I'd wear this every day, but macaroni tends to be fragile, so I keep it in a box for special occasions.

Nelle: I-I should really be more careful with mine. I don't think Charlotte's gonna be making any more for me.

Nina: Yeah, me neither. I keep telling myself it's for the best. And it is. It... Lulu is Charlotte's biological mother, and, uh, I-I don't want to hang around them. It'd just confuse her.

Nelle: Who -- who told you that?

Nina: Uh... I mean, no one in so many words.

Nelle: Because it isn't true. I was Charlotte's nanny. You know, I got to see your family up close. She loves you, Nina. She just -- she -- she wants to spend time with you. She adores you.

Nina: [Sighs] She did. But she's living with Lulu now.

Nelle: You know, I think it's best for Charlotte to keep you in her life.

Nina: I think it'd really confuse her.

Nelle: What's confusing about a mom and a stepmom? Lots of kids have both.

Nina: Yeah, I really don't think Lulu would be comfortable with it.

Nelle: Isn't Charlotte the one that's important here? Isn't her happiness more important than Lulu's comfort level?

Michael: What's going on with my dad?

Jason: Probably nothing.

Michael: Just tell me.

Jason: [Sighs] Okay, so one of Julian's old associates, it's possible that he's going after Sonny.

Michael: Wait, Julian said this. Why -- why would Julian warn my father?

Sam: Because he -- he claims he's trying to be a better person.

Jason: Yeah, I don't believe any of it, really, but I think your father should be warned.

Michael: Okay, well, like I said, Dad's on the island, so he should be safe, but I'll leave a message with Max just in case. What's this guy's name?

Jason: The only name I have is Garvey.

Michael: Garvey. Thanks. I'll take care of it.

Jason: What does that mean?

Michael: It means I'll -- I'll give Max the guy's name and tell him to tighten security.

Jason: Do you promise to leave it at that? Because if you get involved in anything else, your mother will cut my throat.

Michael: Yes, you don't have to worry. I've -- I've had this lecture a thousand times by both my parents. I'm not going anywhere near my father's business, okay? Which actually brings me to the other reason I'm here. How would you like to join me at ELQ?

[Rain pattering]

Sonny: I figured we might as well take advantage of the ice while we still have it.

Carly: Oh, wow. Awesome. Okay, so what are we drinking to?

[Thunder rumbles]

Sonny: Uh, to the -- to the best hurricane I can remember.

[Both chuckle]

Carly: Hear, hear. Whoo! Those are strong! Wow!

Sonny: Well, it's not like we're -- we're driving or flying. I mean, all we've got to do is relax and, you know, just wait out the storm.

Carly: This is better than sitting at a lounge at the airport, that's for sure.


Carly: What the hell was that? Maybe that was the wind.

Sonny: Stay here. I'm gonna go check.

Carly: No, wait. Wait. What if someone's out there?

Sonny: Then I'll tell them it's private property and get the hell out of here.

Carly: No, wait. You're making me nervous.

Sonny: Carly, relax.

Nathan: Amy, can I talk to you in the hall, please?

Amy: My client will do the photo shoot provided you agree to his terms.

Quinn: Which are?

Amy: We never show his face full to camera.

Quinn: Look, I just explained that -- that his face is the brand.

Amy: You did. And we agree. But part of what makes "Ask Man Landers" work is the mystery, and we're gonna preserve that mystery by leaving most of his face in shadow, so that all we see clearly is one eye. Leave the rest to the reader's imagination.

Quinn: I-I'm not sure that that would work.

Amy: [Sighs]

Quinn: I'm not sure.

Amy: You said yourself. The customer needs a reason to pick up the book in the first place.

Quinn: Mm-hmm.

Amy: So imagine you're a customer. You walk into a bookstore or you're scrolling online, and you see the cover. A man's face in shadow and one brilliant blue eye gazing out at you. And the title, "Ask Man Landers." You're curious, right? You want to know more about this guy, see what he has to say. So you pick up the book or you click on the title, and you're sold! [Chuckles]

Quinn: You know what? I'm sold. We're gonna do it your way.

Amy: [Gasps] [Laughs]

Lulu: Charlotte, honey, I-I know that there are a lot of new things that you're getting used to right now, like living with me and Dante and Rocco and thinking of us as your family.

Charlotte: Papa and Nina are my family, too.

Lulu: Of course, they are. [Sighs] Your father had to go away. And the truth is, none of us really know when he's coming back.

Charlotte: He'll be back when he answers all the questions. He promised.

Dante: Right. But in the meantime, you -- you have a lot of people here who -- who love you and care about you a lot.

Lulu: We love you so very much. So does my mom and Kevin and Spencer.

Charlotte: I don't want to be impolite, but sometimes Spencer isn't very nice.

Lulu: He can be difficult. If Spencer ever hurts your feelings, you can always come to me.

[Knock on door]

Come in!

Nelle: I found a submission you might like.

Nina: Already? Wow. I'm impressed.

Nelle: Well, keep in mind that I'm new at this and I might not have the same tastes as you.

Nina: It's all right. Just show me what you got.

Nelle: It's a backstage account of a fashion show, and it's not from a designer or a model's perspective. It's from one of those, you know, anonymous dressers that runs around and makes everything perfect before it hits the runway.

Nina: Oh, I like that, giving our readers a new point of view. That's really great, giving a voice to someone in the background. Yeah. All right. Great. I'll read this, and then you can get me lunch.

Nelle: Oh, yeah. Great. What would you like?

Nina: Um, let's try Kelly's. The kale and quinoa salad.

Nelle: I don't think they have that at Kelly's.

Nina: Ah, they do. I have an account there, and they make it special for me.

Nelle: Oh.

Nina: You can get one for yourself, too, if you want.

Nelle: Oh, that's -- that's okay. I don't need one.

Nina: Was it the kale or quinoa that did that? [Chuckles] Listen, I'm not a food cop. You can get what you want.

Nelle: Okay, um, I mean, that's fine, I guess.

Nina: Hey, listen, you may have given me our next great feature. It's the least I could do for you. I'll buy you lunch. Go ahead.

Nelle: O-okay.

Nina: Stop talking about it.

Nelle: Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay.

Michael: ELQ is moving into green technologies, investing in sustainable energy sources. And I'm getting pushback from Ned.

Jason: Let me guess. Not profitable enough.

Michael: Not in the short term. We're invested in -- in several projects in multiple locations. I need someone to go on site, get accurate feedback, troubleshoot -- basically, um, oversee the entire unit.

Sam: That's amazing. You mean someone like Jason.

Michael: Yeah. Look, there's a lot of travel involved. We have projects here, Europe, Asia.

Jason: Look, I-I don't have experience in this. This is...

Michael: Look, you're -- you're a problem solver, Jason, and you know how to run big operations.

Sam: Absolutely. I mean, did you create this job with him in mind?

Michael: Uh, no, just the opposite, actually. We were talking about a project organizer, and, um, we were going over the necessary qualifications. And then I realized that Jason would be perfect. So, what do you say?


Carly: Sonny? Sonny? [Gasps] [Sighs] What happened?

Sonny: Good thing I checked. We have an intruder. No one you want to mess with.

Michael: I took a big risk investing in these projects, and I need someone I can trust to make them pay off. I-I can't think of anyone better than you.

Jason: Look, Michael, I am sorry, but now is just not a good time.

Sam: What are you talking about? Jason, come on. You would be great at this. And Michael, he obviously needs you.

Michael: I do.

Jason: These places that you're gonna need me, they're pretty remote, right?

Michael: North Sea remote.

Jason: [Chuckling] North Sea? Yeah, so you're gonna need me to be away for what? Couple weeks? Couple months?

Michael: It's possible, yes.

Jason: Michael, I've already been away from my family long enough.

Sam: Jason, come on. I think we can make this work.

Jason: Yeah, we could make it work if we needed to make it work. We don't need to make it work because we're fortunate enough not to need the money.

[Cell phone chimes]

Michael: Sorry. Excuse me one second. Um, I got to go.

Sam: Um, is there a time limit on the job offer?

Michael: Well, I need someone who can start by the middle of next month.

Sam: Do you mind if we take a few days to think about it, then?

Michael: Yeah, yeah, yeah. A couple days, but no more. I really have to fill this position.

Jason: I understand.

Michael: Okay.

Jason: Hey, it was good to see you.

Michael: You, too. See you soon.

Jason: Be safe. You trying to get rid of me?

Sam: No, of course not. Why would you say something like that?

Jason: I don't know. Because you want me to work in the North Sea.

Sam: No, I want you to have a challenge, something that you'll enjoy, something that doesn't involve you getting shot at for Sonny.

Carly: Tito? That parrot is still here?

Sonny: Tito was on the island when I bought the place, and as far as Tito's concerned, he owns the place, and I'm just a tenant.

Carly: That thing should be in a cage. What if he bites one of your guests?

Sonny: Well, uh, as far as what the staff says, he can let himself out, which I think is an excuse, because they don't want him locked up. The parrot actually begs to get out in three different languages, and it makes you feel real guilty.

Carly: Oh, come on. That's weird.

Sonny: No, it's true.

Carly: You're okay with a spoiled parrot flying around the island bugging guests and knocking potted plants off?

Sonny: The parrot is not doing any harm to anybody.

Carly: Well, he scared me to death!

Sonny: Why are you so jumpy all of --

Carly: I don't know.

Sonny: You know, it's...

Carly: I don't know, you know? I'm on edge. You know, I feel like something bad's gonna happen.

Sam: I should not have snapped at you like that.

Jason: It's okay. I didn't realize that you were still worried that I wanted to go back to work with Sonny.

Sam: I'm not. I mean, I-I-I-I don't usually, Jason. It's just that you're so fixated on warning him about this Garvey guy that Michael offers you this amazing opportunity, and you basically turned him down without even thinking about it.

Jason: Okay. I'm not fixated, and one has nothing to do with the other.

Sam: Are you sure about that, or is part of you worried that if you do take this job with ELQ that if something does happen to Sonny, you're gonna be halfway around the world and you're not gonna be able to do anything about it?

Quinn: So, I'll forward the contracts for you to review, and once they're signed, we'll schedule your photo shoot.

Amy: We look forward to hearing from you. [Giggles]

Quinn: I think "Ask Man Landers" has a multi-platform appeal, and you are really compelling.

Nathan: Well, I'm only as good as the advice I give.

Quinn: And you give very good advice. So thank you for coming in. I'm going to overnight those contracts, maybe Tuesday.

Amy: Okay.

Quinn: And get them back as fast as possible, and we'll do the photo shoot.

Amy: Thank you!

Quinn: Thank you so much for coming in. Congratulations.

Amy: Aah! I can't believe it worked!

Nathan: I can't believe you got around that picture thing, huh?

Amy: I just blurted it out. I had to come up with something. Although the more I think about this whole "mystery man with his face in the shadows" thing, it could work for us.

Nathan: Yeah.

Amy: Thank you.

Nathan: Come on. You did most of the work.

Amy: I meant thank you for trusting me. I could tell that you were ready to walk out, but you didn't. I really appreciate that.

Nathan: Well, it's no big deal.

Amy: It's a huge deal, for me and for my brother. [Sighs]

Spencer: Ugh! What does Nina have to do with this? A virtual stranger gets to decide the fate of Wyndemere.

Kevin: I wasn't aware Wyndemere's fate was in question.

Laura: It isn't. Look, Valentin has a squad of lawyers looking after his affairs, and probably those guys are gonna be the ones who figure out what happens to the house.

Spencer: [Scoffs] Wasn't it Shakespeare who said, "kill all the lawyers?"

Laura: Yes, it was. Now could we please let it go?

Spencer: Grandmother, excuse me. I need to use the bathroom.

Laura: Okay. Oh, dear. I was sort of hoping that, uh, boarding school would have helped to rein in his behavior a little bit, but clearly I was wrong.

Kevin: Much of that precociousness is a defense mechanism. It helps him creates distance between himself and his grief. It's natural for him to try to exert control, keep things the way they were.

Laura: Thank you for being so understanding.

Kevin: [Scoffs] Oh, he's a little difficult to handle.

Laura: [Laughs]

Kevin: But you should know, you're doing a wonderful job.

Laura: Thank you. Are you sure we're not working your last nerve?

Kevin: Oh, just the opposite. Having you guys move in has been a blessing. You filled my life in ways I never imagined.

Nelle: Uh, Michael, hey.

Michael: Hey.

Nelle: Thank you for meeting me.

Michael: Yeah, sure thing. So, what's the good news?

Nelle: I got a job. Personal assistant to the editor at Crimson magazine.

Michael: Are you s--

Nelle: Yeah.

Michael: Congratulations. That's awesome.

Nelle: Thank you. Thank you. You know, I think, um, you were right.

Michael: Well, actually, I'm kind of right about a lot of things, so you got to be a little bit more specific on that.

Nelle: Okay, well, the day the bird, you know, pooped on my shoulder...

Michael: Yes.

Nelle: ...You said it was a sign of good luck. Obviously I had my doubts, but, um, I think things are starting to turn around here.

Amy: I absolutely realize what a huge imposition this is. It's gone from basically stealing your picture...

Nathan: Oh, you definitely stole my picture.

Amy: ...To a meeting with the publisher, and now you're gonna have to do a photo shoot, and obviously you're not comfortable with any of it. Believe it or not, I'm not even comfortable asking.

Nathan: Amy, Amy, it's fine. It's fine. Your brother needs all this. I'm happy to help.

Amy: The thing is, if Chet's life had gone differently and someone needed him to do what you're doing, he would. He'd think it was ridiculous, like you do. But he'd shrug and laugh and do it 'cause he's a good person. And so are you.

Nathan: Amy, look, I'm happy to help your brother, but the person I'm doing this for is you.

Michael: So, how did you decide on fashion publishing?

Nelle: Uh, fashion publishing decided on me, actually. You know, I ran into Nina here, and we got to talking. Her office has been a complete mess since Maxie was fired, so, you know, I have to admit, I'm an excellent assistant.

Michael: Oh, yeah. No question.

Nelle: Yeah, she offered me the job. I took it. It's only my first day, but I can already tell it's gonna be a really good fit.

Michael: I am really happy for you.

Nelle: Thanks. I'm happy for me, too.

Michael: Now we definitely have to celebrate.

Nelle: Yeah, I'd love to, but I'm really only here to pick up lunch.

Michael: Oh, I can do better than buying you a cup of coffee at Kelly's. ELQ is sponsoring a concert in the park tonight. You should come with me.

Jason: I turned down Michael's job because I don't like the idea of being away from my family for months on end.

Sam: I-I know. We would -- we would miss you. There is no question about that, but at least we would know that you were safe.

Jason: Here's how you can know that I'm gonna be safe. Turn over in bed and take a look at my face, because I'm gonna be right there and not in the North Sea troubleshooting for ELQ or working for Sonny.

Sam: Okay.

Jason: Can I get a hug?

Sam: Okay. Yeah.

Jason: Wow. Look, I made a conscious decision not to go back to Sonny's business, and I don't regret it, but he's still a friend of mine.

Sam: Right, of course.

Jason: And I don't like the idea that he's on some island without any phone service or an idea that somebody could be after him.

Sam: Okay. Um, I was just saying that Michael seems to think that he was okay, so I don't know why you're worried about it.

Jason: I just am worried about it. I'm gonna fly down and make sure everything's okay.

Sam: No, Jason! You can't.

Sonny: Here. Finish your drink.

Carly: You trying to get me drunk?

Sonny: No, I just want you to relax. You don't have to worry.

Carly: I know. I know. I think it, um... I think it's just being down here, you know? Everywhere I look, I see the boys. I see them swimming and building sand castles and playing catch on the lawn, even feeding that dangerous parrot Tito. [Chuckles] And I know most of the time we came down here because things were kind of dangerous back home, but it just didn't matter because... [Voice breaking] The four of us were together. And there was just enough time for everything.

Sonny: Time ran out.

Nathan: Hi, Charlotte. Thinking of joining the PCPD?

Charlotte: Not today. I'm late for camp.

Lulu: We are on our way to Lila's Kids.

Nathan: All right. Well, have fun.

Dante: So, uh, thank you for my phone, and thank you, Charlotte, for finding it. That was some excellent detective work.

Charlotte: You're welcome. [Chuckles]

Dante: Bye, babe. See you later.

Lulu: Mwah. Have fun.

Dante: Where were you?

Nathan: Just, you know, checking up on some stuff. No big.

Nelle: So, a concert in the park.

Michael: Yeah. ELQ is a corporate sponsor, so I get reserved seating.

Nelle: So as CEO, you have to make personal appearances?

Michael: No, not at all. Actually I've had plenty of offers to take the tickets off my hands, but I was waiting to see if you wanted to come with me.

Nelle: Are you asking me on a date?

Michael: Are we allowed to date, or are you still refusing to see me? I completely lost track of all this.

Nelle: Oh, no, we're allowed to date. Yeah.

Michael: So that's a yes?

Nelle: Yes.

Michael: All right. At last she cracks.

Nelle: Uh, what time?

Michael: Well, the, um, the concert starts at 8:00.

Nelle: Okay, so pick me up at 7:30?

Michael: 7:15. We want to take our time getting to our seats.

Nelle: Okay, well, uh, I have to get Nina's salad, because if I don't, then she's just gonna fire me. So...

Michael: Okay.

Nelle: I will see you later.

Michael: Okay. See you tonight.

Nelle: See you tonight.

Kevin: Is it me, or has Spencer been gone a long time?

Laura: Yeah, it is a little bit long. I hope he didn't get sick. You gonna check?

Kevin: Sure.

Laura: Thank you. I'll pay the check.

Kevin: Okay.

Laura: Could you give us a total, please? Thank you.

Nelle: Hi, Laura.

Laura: Oh, hi, Nelle. How are you?

Nelle: I'm good. How's Charlotte?

Laura: Uh, she's -- she's doing very well. Her mother enrolled her in Lila's Kids, and she's really enjoying that, especially the arts and crafts.

Nelle: Oh.

Kevin: Laura, we have a problem.

Laura: What?

Kevin: Spencer's gone.

Laura: What?

Spencer: Nina Reeves? Or is it Nina Cassadine?

Nina: Can I help you?

Spencer: Oh, I sure hope so. Me and you, we need to talk.

Sam: You just got done telling me that you didn't want to be a part of Sonny's business anymore.

Jason: I'm not a part of his business. I just want to make sure that he knows there's a threat.

Sam: He's got people for threats! They're called bodyguards!

Jason: It's really not that big of a deal. I fly down to the island. I have Michael let me borrow the ELQ jet. I could be back by tonight.

Sam: Okay, that's fine. That's fine. I'm coming with you, then.

[Rain pattering]

Carly: I see Morgan everywhere on this island. And I'll never really see him again, so...

[Thunder rumbles]

Carly: The worst thing happened, really happened.

Sonny: Our son is gone. [Sighs]

Carly: This place is just a reminder, Sonny, and no matter how happy you can be, it's just a moment, you know. When the moment's gone, it's gone. Bad things can happen.

Sonny: Yeah, but why do we focus on the bad things that could be coming when that's only gonna rob us of what we have right now? I mean, we're in this place. We love it. We're happy here. I don't know. Maybe... maybe we could be happy again.


On the next "General Hospital" --

Laura (to Molly): Did - did you happen to see Spencer?

Spencer (to Nina): You're trying to steal my birthright.

Jordan (to Curtis): We need to cool things off between us.

JT (to Stella): How long have you been here?

Sam (to Jason): I'm not letting you out of my sight.

Sonny (to Carly): Looks like, uh, we're gonna have to stay here.
