Jordan: I cannot believe it took all morning to give our statements about Julian Jerome to the courts.

Nathan: Well, they needed us on the record. The trial starts today.

Jordan: I've got to follow up on another case, but if I hear anything about Julian's trial, I will let you know.

Nathan: Here's hoping we get a conviction.

[Cell phone rings]

Nathan: Max, hey. Hey, how Paris?

Maxie: It's beautiful. You should see it for yourself.

Nathan: That an invitation? Might take you up on it. Could use some Maxie in my life.

Maxie: I think that could be arranged. [Giggles]

Kiki: Oh, my gosh, what a rush. That was...amazing. My heart's still beating so fast.

Elizabeth: Well, you did really well in the ER. It's not every day a nurses' assistant gets pulled into a medical emergency.

Kiki: You guys saved that guy's life. I was just -- I was just handing people things.

Elizabeth: No, you did more than that. You took real initiative.

Kiki: I hope I didn't step on anyone's toes.

Dr. Bensch: There you are, Ms. Jerome. May I speak with you?

Hayden: So that's that.

Finn: Mm. It only took 40 minutes of waiting in line. So now all we have to do is say our "I do's" and we're married tomorrow. No turning back.

Hayden: No turning back.

[Cell phone chimes]

[Phone beeping]

Finn: Is that someone, um, about the ceremony?

Hayden: Uh, no. No, it's just a work thing.

Finn: Okay. Well, you know, at some point, we're going to have to get out this very short guest list we have and tell people where and when to show up for the ceremony. It''s too bad we couldn't have gotten in contact with Tracy. I mean, she might have come back, don't you think? Hayden.

Hayden: Yes?

Finn: You having any second thoughts?

Hayden: [Exhales] Absolutely not.

Finn: Great. Just, you seem a little...distracted. You okay?

Stella: Go on, now, you can get me something cold to drink. I'll sit here, and, um... maybe you can get me one of those BLT sandwiches from Kelly's. Yes! TJ swears by 'em. We passed it a while back.

Curtis: Auntie, I got it. I'm good.

Stella: Okay, but you got to get something for yourself, too.

Curtis: I-I will. I most certainly will.

Stella: Okay.

Curtis: Um, and TJ was right on the money about those sandwiches.

Stella: Mm-hmm. Yeah. [Laughs]

Curtis: Auntie, are you going to be okay here by yourself?

Stella: I have my cell phone. I'll be fine. Go on, now, before I jump on the back of a bike and go home without you. [Laughing]

Curtis: Auntie, I'll be back in about 25, 30 minutes, okay?

Stella: All right.

Curtis: Please try not to get into any trouble?

Stella: Wha-- boy, get on out of here. Give me some sugar. I'll be right here.

[Leaves rustling]

[Woman moaning in distance]

Stella: Is somebody there? Who is it? Is somebody in trouble?

[Woman moans]

Stella: Oh, my God!

Kiki: You wanted to see me?

Elizabeth: Yeah, sure, um... good luck.

Kiki: Thanks.

Dr. Bensch: I noticed how you handled yourself downstairs. You went way beyond your responsibilities as a nurses' aide, and do you have any idea the liberties you took by jumping in the way that you did?

Kiki: I really wanted to help. I'm so sorry if I overstepped or did anything wrong.

Dr. Bensch: No. Quite the opposite. I was impressed.

Kiki: You were?

Dr. Bensch: You were calm under pressure and showed real initiative while deferring to the medical personnel. I wanted you to know that your efforts did not go unnoticed.

Kiki: Thank you. That -- that really means a lot.

Dr. Bensch: Ms. Jerome. Obviously, you have worked very hard to be a nurses' aide, and we can never have too many, but I have to wonder if it's the right fit for you.

Kiki: Oh, um, I thought you said you were impressed by my efforts.

Dr. Bensch: I was. I see real potential in you. Have you ever considered going to medical school?

Stella: Lord have mercy! What is going on in the world?

Valerie: Ma'am? Ma'am, are you okay?

Stella: [Scoffs] I most certainly am not! I'm gonna call the police.

Valerie: I'm a police officer. I'm off-duty. How can I help you?

Felicia: Oh, my God. We are so sorry!

Mac: There's been a terrible, terrible misunderstanding.

Stella: Oh, no, no, no. No misunderstanding. These two were having carnal relations in public.

Nathan: What are you doing here?

Maxie: Well, I'm flying back to Portland tonight, and I wanted to surprise you with another layover.

Nathan: Well, that's, like, the best surprise ever.

Maxie: [Giggles]

Nathan: How long is this layover?

Maxie: Not long enough. Uh, they said you were out and couldn't be reached.

Nathan: Oh, yeah, I had to, uh, I had to give pre-trial testimony. Sorry you had to wait.

Maxie: Oh, honestly, I just fell asleep in one of the conference rooms. Must be jet lagged from the red-eye.

Nathan: Well, how long till your flight?

Maxie: Um, I need to leave for the airport in, like, two hours. Doesn't give us much time.

Nathan: That is a damn shame. Can you take, maybe, a later flight, like, tomorrow?

Maxie: I thought about it, but the reason I wanted to go back so early was so that I could make it in time for Georgie's camp presentation.

Nathan: Yeah. I'm sure she misses you.

Maxie: Yeah, but I miss you, too. [Sighs] I appreciate how understanding you've been about all this. I hope you know that.

Nathan: I do, I do. And I want you to know, you know, if you have any concerns about me or us, you can talk to me.

Maxie: I love you. Can I steal you away for a romantic lunch in the park, picnic-style?

Nathan: I think we're on our way. I just got to answer an e-mail.

Maxie: Okay. And in the meantime, you can fill me in on whatever it was you were gonna tell me before I left last time. It sounded so important.

Stella: This is a public park! Kids are here! Nobody wants to see grown folks acting like farm animals!

Felicia: [Gasps]

Mac: Sorry. So, so, sorry.

Felicia: Oh, yeah, w-we just got carried away.

Stella: Oh, I'll say! If I wanted to see pornography in the middle of the day, I'd have expanded my cable package.

Felicia: [Gasps] Valerie! You know us. You know that Mac and I don't act like this. Please, we were just trying to spice things up. We've been married a long time.

Mac: So lesson learned. No harm, no foul.

Stella: Oh! Is this how you all do things here in Port Charles? Where I'm from, they lock up perverts for indecent exposure.

Valerie: The lady has a point. I could place you both under arrest.

Mac: Officer Spencer, as I'm sure you're well aware, I used to be the police commissioner in Port Charles. Still have a lot of friends in the department. So I hope we understand each other. We'll just let bygones be bygones.

Stella: Oh, ho, ho, no, we will not! I want to press charges.

Valerie: Ma'am, I don't think it's --

Stella: How do you know these thrill-seekers won't try this again? I insist you write them up. And you should know better, whoever you used to be. You ain't above the law. Nobody is.

Felicia: Our son-in-law is a senior detective in your department -- Nathan West. I'm sure he can help us settle this. Please call him.

Nathan: I don't really remember what was on my mind the last time, aside from the obvious.

Maxie: Hmm. Are you sure? It seemed pretty important.

Nathan: H-honestly, I just...I -- all I remember is you walking away, and now you're here again for a little while.

[Cell phone beeping]

Nathan: Almost a clean escape.

Maxie: Don't tell me.

Nathan: Yeah, I am technically still kind of on the clock. Max, I'm sorry. I really -- I got to see whatever this is.

Maxie: Okay. I'm coming with you.

Nathan: No, I can't let you do that. Come on.

Maxie: Oh, come on! Mac was police commissioner for most of my childhood. It wouldn't be my first ride along. I don't have that much time with you. I don't want to let you out of my sight.

Nathan: [Inhales] All right. Come on, partner. Let's roll.

Maxie: Yes! [Giggles]

Hayden: I-I mean, you know, there's still so much that needs to be done. I mean, getting the license was easy, but pulling this off in less than 24 hours?

Finn: You know, we got a couple of things going in our favor.

Hayden: Really?

Finn: Yeah. The two of us together -- unstoppable. And the Quartermaines have something that we don't have.

Hayden: A ton of money?

Finn: Staff.

Curtis: What? Okay, at last I see the proof with my own eyes.

Hayden: Hey.

Curtis: Mm. Put a ring on it, didn't he?

Hayden: Yes, he did.

Curtis: Congratulations again. So, uh, Finn told me all the good news. So when's this going down?

Hayden: Tomorrow.

Curtis: Oh, well, I guess my invite got lost in the mail.

Hayden: Stop it. We haven't told anyone, okay? And you better show up because right now, you're our first guest. And wear a tie.

Curtis: I'm sure I could shuffle some things around.

[Cell phone chimes]

Hayden: Um, well, you know what? As much as I'd love to stay and nurse your bruised ego, I have some last-minute wedding details to attend to.

Finn: What details?

Hayden: Excuse me, but there's some secrets a bride has to keep from her groom. Bye.

Finn: Bye.

Hayden: Bye.

[Cell phone chimes]

[Hayden gets a text from Jared: "I won't be ignored, Rachel. We meet now or I tell everyone what you did."]

Nathan: What seems to be the problem?

Valerie: Well, we have a civilian in the park who... came upon a couple.

Nathan: So you got a couple of teens going at it in the bushes? What do you need me for?

Valerie: Not exactly.

Nathan: Oh. Oh.

Valerie: Yeah. She insists I charge them with indecent exposure which... is technically correct.

Maxie: Hey. I got you a lemonade, too.

Nathan: Hey, Max. Hey. Hi.

Maxie: Hey. Uh, let's, uh... oh, my God! Mac, Mom!

Felicia: Maxie, sweetheart...

Mac: Maxie, sweetheart, what are you doing here?

Maxie: Never mind that. What happened? Did you guys get mugged?

Felicia: No.

Stella: No. They were committing public indecency. Where's your shame? What kind of example have you provided your daughter?

Felicia: Well, I'll have you know that my daughter is a wonderful, upstanding, young woman.

Stella: Oh, despite her freaky parents. Darling, I am so sorry.

Maxie: What?

Nathan: Uh, m-ma'am, thank you, uh, for your vigilance, but I think we can take it from here.

Stella: You don't want to take my statement?

Nathan: Well, I think we've seen enough. Um, do you need Officer Spencer to give you a ride home?

Stella: No. I'll go meet up with my nephew. Thanks all the same. Lord have mercy. What kind of place is this?

Valerie: So...what do you want me to do about this, Detective?

Nathan: Indecent exposure's a misdemeanor, but after that, it's a felony. Mac, this your first offense?

Felicia: Yes!

Mac: Nathan.

Nathan: Part of being a cop is knowing when justice needs to be blind and when it needs to squint. With that being said, your caller, your call.

Valerie: Well, technically I'm off-duty anyway and not really looking forward to the paperwork. Let's just consider this a warning. Okay, you two? Bye, Felicia.

Nathan: Thank you. Appreciate it.

Felicia: Thank you so much. I-I've been in some really sticky situations, but this was just awful. Oh, that poor woman. What did she see?

Mac: Thanks. I owe you one.

Maxie: Uh, no -- I'll make it up to you. Forget owing him one or making it up to him or offending that poor woman. I just have one question for you -- what the hell?!

Kiki: Have I ever thought of med school?

Dr. Bensch: You should consider applying to a fast-track program. They're hard, they're a lot of work, and they will take all of your time. But I'd bet you could handle it.

Kiki: I mean you no disrespect, but why? [Laughs] I mean, you just -- hardly know me.

Dr. Bensch: I saw you in action this morning. We were in a crisis. You were focused, cool-headed, professional, and took care of business. I've heard nothing but glowing reviews from your superiors. The medical profession needs people like you -- people who are getting hands-on experience and have the ability to go farther. I'm a firm believer in talent. You have any questions, my door is always open.

[Elevator doors open]

Kiki: Thank you. I --

Jordan: Dr. Bensch, um...may I speak with you. I...have a few follow-up questions about the incident the other night.

Dr. Bensch: Yes. Of course. Think about it.

Finn: Sorry about that, man. The last few days, Hayden's been going 90 miles a hour.

Curtis: Yeah, well, she's been like that since I met her. Anyway, no worries. Imma get up out of here, man, grab this food.

Finn: Yeah, yeah, uh, wait, know, um, before you go... you know, I don't have many friends in Port Charles. Truth be told, I only had one, and Tracy, I don't know where she is now and, um... well, you know, you really stepped up, and you were there for me when I was struggling and in recovery, and you're important in Hayden's life...

Curtis: Um, are you asking me to be your best man?

Finn: I need someone to step up for me, Curtis, and I can't think of anyone I'd like better.

Curtis: Well, Doc Finn, um... I'd be honored, man.

Finn: Yeah?

Curtis: [Laughs]

Finn: Oh.

Curtis: What?

Finn: Yeah.

Jared: Hey, Rachel.

Hayden: Oh! Don't do that.

Jared: You used to like it when I tickled you.

Hayden: I used to like four spoons of sugar in my cereal, but I grew up and found out it was bad for me. Why are you stalking me with texts?

Jared: Do I really need to say it? I want my money. You told me you'd arrange for a wire transfer yesterday, so where it is?

Hayden: We have a problem.

Jared: Wrong. It sounds like you are about to have a big problem.

Dillon: I was beginning to think that you stood me up.

Kiki: I know, I know. I'm so sorry. I am so late. But work has just been crazy -- in a good way. But something came up, and I cannot wait to tell you.

Dillon: Oh, yeah? What?

Kiki: I will tell you when I see you. I'm on my way.

Dillon: I can't wait, Kiki. [Chuckles]

Maxie: Has the world just turned upside down? I mean, wh-- when I was in high school, Mac wouldn't even let me wear low-rise jeans! And now you guys are getting busy in the public park?

Felicia: Come on, Maxie. It's not that big of a deal. I mean, we have more to be embarrassed about than you do.

Mac: And, to be fair, those jeans were too revealing for a teenage girl.

Maxie: They were in style. And that is so not the point right now.

Mac: The point is your mother and I are two healthy, breathing, living adults.

Felicia: And empty-nesters, and we're just trying to redefine what our relationship is supposed to be.

Mac: Yeah.

Felicia: Just the two of us, right?

Mac: Right. To rekindle that -- that passion which really never went away.

Felicia: I know.

Maxie: Okay, so, go on a river cruise like most normal parents do. Where did you guys even get the idea to have alfresco sex?

Mac: It was me. Well, actually, I got professional advice.

Maxie: Oh, from a marriage counselor.

Mac: An advice columnist. Ask Man Landers.

Maxie: [Scoffs]

Mac: Man, he really kicked our marriage into high gear.

Felicia: [Giggles]

Finn: Hi, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: Hi.

Finn: Hi. Um...have you talked to your sister lately?

Elizabeth: No.

Finn: Oh, then you probably don't know, and I don't want to speak for her, but, um... [Whispers] We're engaged.

Elizabeth: Really?

Finn: Yeah.

Elizabeth: Oh, my God! Congratulations!

Finn: [Normal voice] Thank you. Thank you. I-I'm only telling you because we're getting married tomorrow, and I want to know if you could be there.

Elizabeth: Tomorrow? Why so soon? Is it the baby? Is that why?

Finn: No, no, we just -- we just really wanted to get married and we didn't want anything fancy and Monica was kind enough to gift us with a ceremony, and I know Hayden would really love for you to be there.

Elizabeth: You sure about that?

Finn: Yes.

Elizabeth: [Laughs]

Finn: Yes, come on. I mean, you two have come a long way, and it's been really interesting to watch your relationship evolve. And you're family -- I guess we kind of all are now.

Elizabeth: Well, then, in that case, I wouldn't miss it for the world.

Jared: So help me, Rachel, if this is some kind of a ploy --

Hayden: It's Hayden. And it's not a ploy, I swear.

Jared: Do I need to remind you of the consequences if you don't deliver on this? Bye-bye invented life. Bye-bye husband's sobriety. Bye-bye happy home for that baby.

Hayden: You know what, okay, okay. Okay. You're gonna get your money. But we can either do this the fast way or the smart way. GH is a non-profit organization, okay? The books are closely monitored by a third-party bank to ensure that management doesn't do exactly what I'm doing for you. So to get your money, I have to do it in a way that doesn't rouse suspicion.

Jared: Which is?

Hayden: I set up a dummy corp -- White Hat Limited Medical Supplies. I've arranged for GH to place several orders through this company since yesterday. Once the checks from GH clear, the account will be yours to drain. I'll just look like the dupe who got suckered by a less-than-reputable supply company. I may get fired, but at least I'll have my life back.

Jared: And I'm just supposed to take your word for it, huh? Fool me once --

Hayden: See for yourself. Here's the account information. The routing number. The money will be ready for you tomorrow.

Jared: I --

Hayden: Trust me, Jared. This is the right way to go about it. We don't want to raise any eyebrows.

[Leaves rustling]

Maxie: "Ask Man Landers"? Honestly... you know, I thought you of all people wouldn't fall for that overrated hack.

Nathan: Well, I thought you were a fan.

Maxie: I was. But anyone who turns down my magazine is dead to me. And then I got to thinking, "Who is this dude to be dispensing advice? Does he have any fancy letters behind his name? Like PhD, MD? Is he an expert in any field on any social issue?"

Nathan: I mean, not all experts have degrees. There's something to be said for street smarts.

Maxie: Okay, this guy's "street smarts" almost got my parents arrested, so...

Nathan: Oh, come on. They're adults that can make their own decisions. I'm not sure it's entirely fair to blame it all on a blog.

Maxie: Time-out. Why are you defending this "Ask Man Landers"?

Kiki: Mm.

Dillon: Mm. Okay, distractions!

Kiki: [Laughs]

Distractions. What is this exciting news that you made me wait for?

Kiki: So, today, I got to work in the ER...

Dillon: Yeah.

Kiki: By a fluke, but it was awesome. Anyway, so, Dr. Bensch pulled me aside and he wanted to talk. So I assumed that meant that I overstepped or something, but then he told me he was really impressed by me.

Dillon: That's great! I mean, that's one of your supervisors, right?

Kiki: Yeah, yeah, and then he also said -- get this... um, I should go to med school. That's so weird, right?

Dillon: Why is that weird?

Kiki: I don't know, I guess because a year ago, I didn't even know I wanted to work in a hospital. And now I'm talking about going to med school? It's a leap. Oh, and Dr. Bensch said that he would help me with all of the logistics, that's... I don't know about you, but... [Imitates explosion]

Dillon: Dr. Jerome? That's got a ring to it.

Kiki: No, no. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Dillon: No, seriously. Say it out loud. Say it... Dr. Kiki Jerome. Dr. --

Kiki: No!

Dillon: Dr. Kiki Jerome.

Kiki: No.

Dillon: [Whispers] Dr. Kiki Jerome.

Kiki: Yes, it's very flattering, and I appreciate all of your support, but... [Chuckles] What if I don't have what it takes?

Jordan: So, when you got to the second floor, you didn't notice any sign of altercation that was reported?

Dr. Bensch: No, none. Should I be alarmed?

Jordan: No, no. I actually suspect that it was just a ruse to get Jason Morgan past the guards and into your patient's room.

Dr. Bensch: Right... Mr. Garvey. Why do I feel like I'm in the middle of a '30s gangster flick. Like Rocky Sullivan could walk through the door anytime now.

Jordan: Right. What was it, "Angels With Dirty Faces"?

Dr. Bensch: No way. You know that movie?

Jordan: Yeah, my grandfather and I used to watch James Cagney gangster films all the time. It was our thing.

Dr. Bensch: Is that why you wound up on the right side of the law?

Jordan: Well, I mean... I do have a little dirty face in me sometimes... thank you for your time. That was very helpful.

Dr. Bensch: My pleasure. Oh, listen, they are actually showing "Roaring Twenties" in town all week. Celluloid print, newly remastered. I was thinking about checking it out later.

Jordan: Oh, that sounds fun. Well, would you like to join me? We could grab a drink afterwards.

Stella: Excuse me. You're that nice police officer from earlier.

Valerie: Yeah. Uh, please, have a seat.

Stella: Oh, thank you. [Breathing heavily]

Valerie: Can I help you with something?

Stella: No, I just need to catch my breath for a minute.

Valerie: Oh, well why don't you have my water? I didn't touch it yet. [Laughs]

Stella: Thanks.

Valerie: Oh, and please don't judge Port Charles for that incident earlier. It was unusual. But you have to admit... it was a little entertaining. [Laughs]

Stella: [Chuckles] I suppose so. Thanks for the water.

Valerie: Yeah.

Stella: Where in the world...?

Valerie: You looking for someone?

Stella: Yes, my nephew. We were supposed to meet back at the park. He came here for sandwiches... I must have just missed him. [Sighs] I guess I got to head on back...

Valerie: Well, wait, you just got here. Why don't you just text him to come back and pick you up?

Stella: That sounds like a plan. [Laughs] So, you're a police officer? Go ahead, girl! [Laughter] I bet your, um, husband must get worried about you.

Valerie: Nope. Not married.

Stella: Oh. Then your boyfriend? Significant other?

Valerie: [Laughs] None of the above. I'm currently single.

Stella: Oh, a beautiful woman like yourself with a good job, a good heart, and smart to boot? Why do you want to be all alone in the world?

Valerie: I don't, it just... is what it is right now.

Stella: Then maybe there's something we can do about that.

Hayden: Curtis, so weird running into you again.

Curtis: Mm, I'm sure. Thought you were planning your big day. Aren't you gonna introduce me?

Hayden: Oh, this is, um, an old friend of mine from college.

Curtis: Oh. I guess you're in town for the wedding tomorrow.

Jared: The wedding's... tomorrow?

Hayden: Yeah, I was just getting around to telling you about that, but you know, since you're just passing through town, there's no hard feelings if you can't make it.

Jared: Don't be silly! I wouldn't dream about missing your big day. We go... we go way back, after all. Nice to meet you. And I'll see you tomorrow, Hayden.

Hayden: So, what's in the bag?

Curtis: Sandwiches. Old friend from college, huh?

Hayden: Yeah.

Curtis: Mm.

Hayden: How about that? I just found out he was in town.

Curtis: Hayden, what the hell is going on? Nothing. Bull. I saw how you bolted out of Kelly's after you got a text. Was it from him? Look, I don't get a good read from that dude, okay? And I saw how you started acting funny-style when I walked up just now.

Hayden: Well, I was just surprised to see you. That's all.

Curtis: Okay. Look, this is me. You can tell me anything. Are you in some kind of trouble?

Hayden: It's not like I'm having an affair or anything. I mean, I just... I just ran into him.

Curtis: Okay. Do I look like boo-boo the fool to you? Huh? I know you, Hayden. The last time you acted this sketchy, you were hiding your father's diamonds. So now, if you've got something going on, you need --

Hayden: I don't have anything going on! At least not... yet.

Curtis: Okay. Take it from the top.

Hayden: There are things about me... things about my past I haven't even told Finn. And it's all just coming back to haunt me. [Sniffles]

Curtis: It's coming back to haunt you, or it's being brought back? Because if this dude is blackmailing you, I can get the cops.

Hayden: No! No, no. Absolutely not.

Curtis: Okay, well, you know I have some pretty powerful friends. I can make a phone call, they can put the fear of God in him.

Hayden: No. No, no, no, no, no, no. I can't risk pissing him off. I mean...[Sniffles] He's got the power to blow up my life, and he's got absolutely nothing to lose.

Curtis: What does this guy have on you?

Hayden: I made a huge mistake a long time ago. But I will do everything I can to not let it destroy my future.

Curtis: All right, so... so, say you, uh... you pay your debt, you get this guy back. What stops him from being greedy and demanding more?

Hayden: I don't think he will.

Curtis: You don't think --

Hayden: But it's a risk I'm gonna have to take.

Curtis: So that's how you want to play it, huh?

Hayden: There's no other choice. [Sniffles]

Curtis: Hayden, I'm not one to judge. But I know what it's like to have a past that you regret. And after running from it for years, the best thing I did was turn around and own my mistakes. No more looking over my shoulders wondering if someone is there to expose my secrets. Now, as your friend, and as someone who has been on both sides of this problem, you need to listen to me. Don't be a victim. Talk to Finn, be open and honest with him, and take this clown's leverage away before you get in too deep.

Valerie: Why do I get the feeling I'm about to be set up?

Stella: Oh, no. I would never be so forward as to mettle in your love life.

Valerie: [Laughs]

Stella: I'm just here in town visiting my nephew. And he's still fairly new here, too. I just think the two of you would hit it off. As friends! You can't have too many friends, right?

Valerie: Oh. Thank you, but I don't think so. I mean, I'm not really into the whole blind date thing.

Stella: Mm.

Valerie: Especially when I'm being set up by someone I don't even know. [Chuckles]

Stella: But you trust those dating apps on your phone instead, huh?

Valerie: How'd you know I have a dating app on my phone?

Stella: I didn't. [Laughs]

Valerie: [Laughs]

Stella: Just a lucky guess. My church member's daughter uses those.

Valerie: Oh.

Stella: And I can tell you some stories, honey. [Giggles] Never mind. I was just suggesting that we all have coffee together. You, me, and my nephew. If you hate the date, you can arrest me.

Valerie: [Chuckles]

Stella: You stand to win more than you stand to lose.

Valerie: Maybe you're right.

Nathan: I am not defending "Ask Man Landers." I barely even know "Ask Man Landers."

Maxie: I know what's going on here!

Nathan: You do?

Maxie: You're, like, a fan. You read his blog, don't you?

Nathan: I... sometimes. I blame you for raising a super-sleuth daughter.

Mac: Yeah, well, today you can blame me for a lot more than that. Nathan, I really appreciate your assistance in all this. And, Maxie, please don't be mad at your mother, or me, or Nathan.

Felicia: You two enjoy yourself... ...for the rest of your visit, and, uh, we got to get going. Babe, I need a shower.

Mac: Sounds good to me.

Maxie: Oh, my God...

Nathan: I'm...sorry, Max. I'm sure they've learned their lesson. [Chuckles]

Maxie: No, I...[Sighs] I'm really more upset that I spent my layover on my parent's very public display of affection when I could have been spending it with you.

Nathan: I know how you feel. It's been one thing after another today, huh? We barely have any time together. I miss you.

Maxie: You know, not seeing you is hard, but seeing you knowing I might not see you again soon... I think that's almost harder.

Nathan: What are you trying to say? We should cut back on our visits?

Maxie: Or... you should come with me to Portland. For good.

Nathan: Maxie...

Maxie: Look, I know, I know. There are a million reasons for you to stay in Port Charles. But my life in Portland -- my job, being near Georgie -- it's so good. The only thing that's missing is you.

Nathan: Oh, I just...

Maxie: No, no, no. Don't. [Clears throat] Don't say anything about it now. Okay? I want you to think about it, and I don't want to get into a big debate about it now, anyway. I mean, after all the time we lost because my parents took terrible advice from "Ssk Man Landers," I just -- I just want us to leave on a good note.

Nathan: Me too. Just going to go radio dispatch that I'm taking you to the airport.

Maxie: Oh, I'd like that. Hey, it's me. I've got a great story idea. How do you feel about unmasking the identity of "Ask Man Landers"?

Kiki: Yeah, I mean, I was thrilled when Dr. Bensch suggested med school. But... it's not very realistic. I mean, you remember all of the pre-med kids in college. They were always studying.

Dillon: Yeah.

Kiki: Straight "A"s... [Chuckles] I'm not remotely qualified. Why set myself up for disappointment?

Dillon: What if you could believe in yourself, you studied really hard, you did a great job, and then you became a doctor?

Kiki: Yeah. Sounds great. What are the odds?

Dillon: I would place that bet. That's because I can believe that you can do whatever you put your mind to. Either way, I'll support your decision. I guess the only choice you have to make now is whether or not you want to be a doctor.

Jordan: I'm not sure if the police commissioner dating a witness in an active investigation is a good idea. And in fact, take that back... I'm pretty sure of it.

Dr. Bensch: I saw nothing, really. I'm not even a very good witness. And I'm not a suspect, am I?

Jordan: No. No, no. No. Truthfully, um... I just got out of a relationship, and I... I just -- I'm not really looking to...

Dr. Bensch: Commissioner. I'm asking you to see a Cagney movie and grab a drink.

Jordan: [Laughs]

Dr. Bensch: I will not send out invitations if you won't.

Jordan: I'm gonna have to say no. But thank you, sincerely, I'm... just not there yet.

Dr. Bensch: You're not ready till you're ready.

Stella: I'm so glad you agreed to have coffee with me and my nephew. Here's my number. You give me a call tomorrow, and we'll set the whole thing up.

Valerie: Just coffee.

Stella: That's right.

Valerie: [Laughs]

Stella: I'm Stella.

Valerie: Stella, I'm Valerie. It's great to meet you. And you're right, it's time for a new approach.

Stella: We'll get those dating apps off your phone yet. And I look forward to hearing from you. Okay.

Curtis: There you are! [Sighs] I -- Auntie, I thought you were gonna wait for me. I almost called the hospital until I got a text.

Stella: I know, I'm sorry. I thought I could meet you here before you left.

Curtis: All right. Um, I'm double-parked, I'm not trying to get a ticket, so let's get out of here. Uh... how did you enjoy your day alone?

Stella: A little unnerving at first, but all in all, it was wonderful. And more productive than you think.

Elizabeth: I don't suppose you and Hayden have registered anywhere.

Finn: No, no. None of that's very important to us. We just really want all our family and friends to be there.

Elizabeth: That's sweet. And there's the blushing bride.

Finn: Hi, I'm -- I hope you don't mind, Hayden, but I told Elizabeth the news.

Hayden: Oh, no. Thanks. I was going to call you.

Elizabeth: Well, you obviously have a lot to do. Congratulations!

Hayden: Thank you.

Elizabeth: That's really great news.

Hayden: Thanks. Um... could you excuse us for a minute? I just -- I need to talk to Finn...

Elizabeth: Oh, yeah. Sure.

Finn: Hi.

Hayden: Hi.

[Cell phone rings]

Finn: Oh. I'm sorry. I have an emergency consult in the ICU. Can I... can I call you the minute I'm done?

Hayden: Sure.

Finn: Yeah?

Hayden: Yeah.

Finn: You look pretty.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Hayden: Oh, hey. I forgot you were still there.

Elizabeth: I'm -- I'm still here. What's wrong?

Hayden: You were right about me. When I first came to town, you pegged me as someone who would weasel her way out of paying the consequences... and you were right... then. But I've changed. I'm not the same person that I was. You see that now, right?

Elizabeth: Yeah. Yeah, we all do. Where is this coming from?

Hayden: I just want this wedding to go off without a hitch, okay? I don't want anything or anyone to ruin it.

Elizabeth: Okay. If you want my help, I'm more than happy to do whatever.

Hayden: Actually, I do. Um... look, I need a maid of honor.

Elizabeth: Done. [Chuckles] I was gonna stand next to you and fuss all over you, anyway, so... don't worry! I'm gonna make sure nothing spoils your big day.

Jared: Keep me in mind as you plan your big day tomorrow. And don't even think about screwing me over. You know what's at stake if you do, Rachel.

Finn: I'm sorry, I don't mean to interrupt.

Elizabeth: No, that's okay. We were just... having a moment.

Hayden: Yeah.

[Phone ringing]

Elizabeth: I'm gonna get that.

Finn: That was nice.

Hayden: Yeah, um, I asked her to be my maid of honor.

Finn: That makes me happy. Did I mention that I asked Curtis to be my best man?

Hayden: What? Really? Did he say yes?

Finn: Yeah! I mean, he hugged me, so... I think -- but never mind all that. What, uh... what did you want to talk about earlier?

Elizabeth: Hayden, your assistant's been trying to find you. I told her you were here, so she transferred a call. It's the bank. Something about suspicious activity with the hospital's accounts? They need to speak with you personally.

On the next "General Hospital" --

Griffin (with Kiki, to Ava): We were hoping you'd come out and join us for lunch.

Julian (to Scott): You don't actually think that she would try to harm my kids, do you?

Molly (to Alexis): Please don't even think about saving Julian.

Charlotte: That lady!

Jared (to Elizabeth): Is, uh, Hayden Barnes around?

Finn (to Hayden): Why didn't you tell me?
