(The last 7 minutes are missing due to a news break)

Felicia: Absolutely not! There's no point in covering it up. She's going to find out.

Mac: How?

[Elevator whirring]

Felicia: She's a spy! Her job is to collect intel! Wouldn't you rather she hear it from us?

Mac: Wh-- and how do you think that talk is gonna go, exactly? "Anna, how was your trip? Oh, good. Our summer? Oh, nothing special. Narrowly avoided arrest for indecent exposure." She'll bar us from seeing Emma and the baby.

Felicia: Oh, please. Anna is a reasonable woman. She'll probably just laugh!

Mac: No, she won't. Because she's not gonna know. It's still a secret.

Felicia: Well, I think you're being optimistic. Maxie isn't exactly the soul of discretion. Now that she knows about our little outdoor adventure, it's only a matter of time for the rest of Port Charles to know about it, too!

Maxie: Georgie, be careful! Okay, honey? Slides are for going down, not climbing up! That's right. Good job. No, Georgie, don't...eat the grass.

Spinelli: Oh! A little grass is okay, Georgie.

Maxie: Are you kidding? Who knows what's living in it?

Spinelli: A host of microorganisms.

Maxie: [Sighs]

Spinelli: All beneficial to the human body. Hey, do you know how many reports actually show that a little exposure to the elements could protect Georgie from allergies as she gets older?

Maxie: I don't want her getting all grungy.

Spinelli: Grunge is a way of life here. Gonna have to get used to it. That is, if you're gonna stay.

Amy: Give me all your money!

Nathan: [Sighs]

Amy: [Laughs] Did I get you?

Nathan: Yeah, you got me, Amy. You got to know better than to do that to a cop, Amy.

Amy: I'm sorry. I keep forgetting. It's what I do with all my brothers.

Nathan: Mm.

Amy: [Sighs]

Nathan: So you think of me as your brother?

Amy: More than that -- you're my hero.

Nathan: I take it your actual brother's recovery is going better?

Amy: [Sighs] Chet's got a long road ahead of him, but he'll get there.

Nathan: Yeah? Everything okay?

Amy: It's fine. But enough about me! I want to hear about you! Mm? How has your summer been? I bet a lot less fun without me around. [Laughs]

Nathan: Calmer. Calmer. But, yeah, okay, maybe a little less fun.

Amy: Admit it -- you missed being "Ask Man Landers," didn't you? [Chuckles]

Felicia: I can't believe you're so upset by all this. You know, when Kevin gets back from France, I think we should talk to him about getting you some anti-anxiety meds.

Anna: Oh, why? Whatever for?

Mac: Hi!

Emma: Hi!

Felicia: Oh! Hello!

Anna: Hi. How are you?

Felicia: Wow, guys!

Anna: I'm great.

Felicia: Hi.

Mac: So good to see you.

Mac: Oh!

Felicia: Hey, sweetie. Hi! [Chuckles]

Franco: So, why was Liesl so convinced that Hayden had been arrested?

Elizabeth: Only one reason I can think of... ...she was in on it.

Franco: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on a second. Wait one second.

Elizabeth: Really?!

Franco: Oh, wow. You're really strong.

Elizabeth: I want to confront her. That woman had a hand in driving my sister away.

Franco: You don't know that, not for sure.

Elizabeth: Obrecht blames Finn for getting her fired. She hates him, so of course, she hates Hayden. It only makes sense that she would do something to screw up both of their lives!

Franco: Oh, okay. So?

Elizabeth: So I'm gonna get to the bottom of this.

Franco: By confronting Obrecht?

Elizabeth: Do you have a better idea?

Franco: Yeah. I do. Here, hold this. Allow me.

Finn: Not saying it'll be easy. Hayden knows how to cover her tracks. But you're a PI, right? And you're one of Hayden's friends. The way I figure it, if anyone can find her, it's you.

Curtis: Well, you're right -- I do know Hayden better than most. And you're also right -- I can bring her back to Port Charles quicker than any other PI in the business. But I won't.

Finn: Hayden is good at reinventing herself. But she only has so much in the way of resources, and let's not forget that she is in her second trimester. There's only so many things she can do to blend in. When you consider that, it shouldn't be too difficult to find her. That is, unless, of course, you're not as good as you'd like everyone to believe.

Curtis: Now, do I strike you as a brother whose vanity can be exploited?

Finn: Yes. You strike me as someone who's exactly that.

Curtis: Well, under normal circumstances, I'd probably punch you for saying something like that to me. But out of respect for Hayden, I'll refrain. And also out of respect for Hayden, I can't take this job.

Dr. Obrecht: Franco, meine liebchen. How lovely to see you twice in one day.

Franco: Yeah, you might want to withhold judgment on that.

Dr. Obrecht: Is there a problem?

Franco: I don't know. You tell me. What are you doing here, Liesl?

Dr. Obrecht: I had a hangnail. Really, Franco. Since when do I need to explain my presence at General Hospital?

Franco: Well, there's a rumor going around that you did everything you could to try and ruin Hayden and Finn's lives.

Dr. Obrecht: Can I help it if the woman has a reputation for larceny? She is, after all, the daughter of the greatest swindler of our time.

Franco: Okay, so that's what you're doing here. You're loitering around the hallways, hoping to see Hayden dragged off in handcuffs.

Dr. Obrecht: Why? Are the police here?

Franco: No, the police are not here.

Dr. Obrecht: Have you seen Hayden?

Franco: No, Hayden's not here, either.

Dr. Obrecht: Well, it's only a matter of time before she turns up, like the bad pfennig she is.

Franco: Okay, you know what? Stop. There's, like, a disconnect here. Let me clear this up. Hayden didn't just break the engagement -- she broke camp. She's gone.

Maxie: Look, I have no plans to settle down here.

Spinelli: But you've no plans not to.

Maxie: [Sighs]

Spinelli: Admit it -- it's... it's crossed your mind.

Maxie: Of course -- it's always on my mind. I love seeing Georgie every day. That beard, not so much.

Spinelli: Really? 'Cause, see, Ellie can't get enough of it. When -- when she kisses me, she says it's like kissing Merlin Olsen -- who was apparently a childhood crush of hers.

Maxie: "Little House on the Prairie." Yeah. I get that. I mean, it makes sense. You look like a pioneer.

Spinelli: I prefer "rugged outdoorsman."

Maxie: [Scoffs]

Spinelli: [Laughs] Well, you know, physical exertion never held much interest for me, but this -- this... this beard has given me confidence. I may actually go camping. You should have, uh, Nathan try it.

Maxie: Yeah. I'll get right on that. If I ever see him again.

Spinelli: I-I -- there's perhaps a way you could entice him. You know, in addition to the scenic splendor and no sales tax, our city has police stations. And actual police!

Maxie: I'm aware of that, Spinelli.

Spinelli: Yep. Is -- is Nathan, though? You know, I'm not sure of the application process, but I'm sure with his stellar record, Portland's finest could make room for him on the force.

Maxie: [Sighs] We've talked about it.

Spinelli: And?

Maxie: Ever since Nina married Valentin, it's like Nathan's afraid to leave Port Charles.

Spinelli: She's a grown woman of some accomplishment. She -- she is, after all, the editor of a major fashion publication. And besides, he can't look after her 24/7.

Maxie: I know. It's almost like Nathan's using Nina as a cover.

Spinelli: What's holding him back?

Maxie: I wish I knew.

Spinelli: Perhaps I do.

Amy: Come on. Tell me you didn't love being "Ask Man Landers."

Nathan: I didn't love being "Ask Man Landers."

Amy: [Scoffs] Remember that podcast where you decided to go off? You clearly enjoyed handing out your own advice.

Nathan: Well, I mean, I wasn't that bad.

Amy: [Sighs] Okay. If you need to maintain this cover for the sake of your pride, then I won't judge. But I saw the twinkle in your eye after that podcast. You were in your element, telling people what to do. Of course, you were. You're a cop. [Laughs]

Nathan: What, you think -- you think being "Ask Man Landers" is like being a cop?

Amy: It's better! I mean, 'cause when you're "Ask Man Landers," it's not the badge or the uniform or the gun that people are paying attention to. It's all you.

Nathan: Um, all right, maybe there's something to that.

Amy: Laughs] See? I knew it! You love it! And if the opportunity presented itself, you'd be happy to keep going.

Nathan: Amy, you're -- you're not asking me to go on being "Ask Man Landers," are you?

Amy: [Chuckles]

Felicia: Aww! Oh, I love this one!

Anna: Yeah, that was the day that we brought him back from the hospital.

Emma: Mom was showing him that stuffed dog you sent.

Anna: Mm-hmm. Yes.

Felicia: Oh! I'd like to have a copy of it to put on the fridge.

Anna: Okay.

Felicia: What do you think?

Mac: Uh, good. It's wonderful. Yeah. [Sniffles]

Emma: Are you crying?

Mac: No, no. It's, uh -- it's kind of humid in here. Okay, you caught me. I'm just hurt they didn't name the kid Mac.

Felicia: Really.

Emma: I'm sorry, Uncle Mac. That was kind of my fault. I told Mom and Dad that I liked Noah better.

Mac: Traitor.

Felicia: Noah Robert Scorpio-Drake. I love it!

Anna: Yeah, the grandpas do, too.

Emma: But Grandpa Robert said Robert should go first.

Anna: Well, of course he did, because your Grandpa Scorpio, you know, he doesn't lack confidence. And I personally think that Noah Robert is the perfect name for a spy.

Felicia: Yeah.

Anna: Or a surgeon.

Mac: Or both.

Emma: Okay, yeah.

Mac: Both.

Felicia: Right?

Mac: So...to the new member of the family.

Anna: Okay. To Noah.

Felicia: To Noah.

Emma: Cheers!

Mac: Cheers.

Felicia: And all the Scorpio-Drakes!

Anna: Yes.

Finn: You won't help me find Hayden out of respect for Hayden?

Curtis: Well, the truth of the matter is, I already started looking for Hayden the moment I realized that she took off. Now, I know it's only been a few hours, but I called in some favors with my contacts at the PD. I asked them to look around at the train depot, ask some questions at the bus station while I personally looked at the rental-car companies and turned the docks upside down. [Sighs] I'm thinking she caught a ferryboat to Canada.

Finn: And?

Curtis: Well, that, too, came up empty.

Finn: So we dig deeper, all right? I'll hire you. Name a price.

Curtis: Doc, you think is about money?

Finn: No, but the more resources you have, the more ground you can cover.

Curtis: Yeah, and the more we get deeper into her business. Look, if this was some random somebody, I'd be all in. But we're talking about my friend.

Finn: Right, right. Shouldn't that mean that you want to find her?

Curtis: Yo, you just don't get it, do you? Hayden don't want to be found. She covered all her tracks. She cut all ties. That's her choice. But more importantly, that's her right. I don't got to like it, but I got to respect that.

Dr. Obrecht: Hayden's gone? Slunk off into the night like a swindler whose con went wrong?

Franco: Okay, yeah, that's one way to put it. And your concern is touching.

Dr. Obrecht: Why should I feign concern I don't feel? Hayden Barnes, aka Rachel Berlin, got what she deserved.

Franco: Maybe. [Sighs] Maybe not. But she's Elizabeth's sister.

Dr. Obrecht: A sister is not always an ally. Believe me, I speak from experience. If anything, I did your porcelain doll a favor.

Franco: Maybe you don't want to advertise that fact.

Dr. Obrecht: What good is being right if you can't shout it from the rafters?

Franco: Well, wouldn't it be great to not start a blood feud between my good friend and my girlfriend?

Dr. Obrecht: I wouldn't worry about it. The blood won't be mine.

Franco: Yeah. Don't underestimate Elizabeth. You don't want to be on her bad side.

Dr. Obrecht: [Laughs] I'll take my chances.

Franco: Okay. And what happens if Finn finds out what you've done?

Dr. Obrecht: I hope he does. The man made me lose my position at this hospital. I won't let him take my schadenfreude, too.

Elizabeth: Okay, Franco, my shift just ended. Can we go now, please?

Dr. Obrecht: Elizabeth. Tell your sister I said "mazel tov." If you see her, of course.

Spinelli: I may know what's keeping Nathan from taking the Portland plunge.

Maxie: Yeah. Don't keep me in suspense. Spit it out, Spinelli.

Spinelli: In a word... moi.

Maxie: Toi? You?

Spinelli: Yes, well, you and I share a child. That's a powerful bond. He may be jealous of our connection. Or he -- he may feel inadequate by comparison.

Maxie: You're right -- the willpower it must take to keep from dragging me back to Port Charles by my hair. I don't know how he does it.

Spinelli: If you'd like, I could have a chat with him. Man to man, as it were.

Maxie: I appreciate that, but I think something else is going on. Besides being jealous of you.

Spinelli: Well, the male mind is a mysterious thing. If you'd like, I could employ my cyber skills to help.

Maxie: You know, I may take you up on that, but, first, I have a more pressing mystery for the Jackal to solve.

Nathan: This whole thing has gotten under my skin, okay? I just -- I'm constantly worried that I'm gonna get found out, that today is the day, you know? I just -- I don't think I have the nerve for this kind of thing.

Amy: You do realize you just described going undercover.

Nathan: Oh, that's way easier than this.

Amy: [Scoffs] Deceiving murderous criminals who might kill you if they find out the truth is easier than pretending to be a well-regarded advice columnist?

Nathan: Yeah, yeah. Murderous criminals don't encourage my in-laws to commit acts of public indecency.

Amy: [Laughs] What?

Nathan: You don't want to know.

Amy: Yes, I do! So spill. What kind of trouble did "Ask Man Landers" get into while I was gone?

Felicia: Oh, is that the time? I'm late to meet Bobbie.

Anna: Oh, send her my love, would you? The three of us should go out one night and have a drink together. I just can't wait to catch up on all the Port Charles gossip.

Felicia: [Gasps] Of course. I think we could all use a good laugh. Well, I'll see you at home later. Bye.

Mac: Bye.

Anna: Bye. Am I missing something?

Mac: Definitely not.

Anna: Oh.

[Cell phone rings]

Emma: Excuse me. I have to take this.

Mac: [Laughs] And I thought we were enough to hold her attention.

Anna: I think it's a boy.

Mac: A boy?!

Anna: It's okay. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh.

Mac: Do I have to confiscate her phone?

Anna: Stand down. It's fine. Robin and Patrick, they promise me they have this whole situation in hand. Don't worry. Do you have anything for me?

Mac: [Sighs] Well, just so you know, we're coming back to the subject of Emma and a boy.

Anna: Okay, fine.

Mac: You hold in your hand a full accounting of everything Valentin has been doing in your absence.

Spinelli: I'm listening.

Maxie: Okay, well, my editor has given me the green light to investigate the publishing crime of the century.

Spinelli: Ooh! Ads masquerading as articles? Cologne samples?

Maxie: Worse.

Spinelli: Ooh.

Maxie: There's this so-called men's advice columnist out there. He's actually incredibly popular, despite the fact that he gives terrible advice. I mean, who knows how many lives he's ruined? And because he works under an assumed name, you can't hold him accountable!

Spinelli: So you want me to help expose his true identity, show the masses he's a charlatan?

Maxie: Exactly. By the time we're done with "Ask Man Landers," no one will be asking him to hold an elevator, let alone give advice.

Spinelli: "Ask Man Landers"? I love that blog!

Maxie: You read "Ask Man Landers," too?!

Spinelli: Yes, I'm a loyal follower! He's the one that told me to grow this beard.

Amy: I get that this is mortifying, but on the bright side, you're in good with your in-laws. Talk about favors. They'll give you whatever you want.

Nathan: I don't want anything from them, except the ability to look them in the eye.

Amy: Oh. Listen, you're making too much of this. It's a good story! One that you'll all laugh about someday.

Nathan: Right, right. As long as Mac and Felicia never find out that I'm the one that encouraged them to go... try out alfresco relations.

Amy: You're innocent. It was "Ask Man Landers." And all he did was advise Mac to spice up his love life. It's his fault he chose to do it in full view of the public.

Nathan: Yeah, well, Maxie doesn't exactly agree. Last time we Skyped, she wanted to give, uh, "Ask Man Landers" a piece of her mind.

Amy: How's she gonna do that?

Nathan: How do you think? She's going to expose his true identity.

Amy: What?! We can't let that happen! Maxie can never know.

Felicia: Know what?

Amy: [Chuckles nervously]

Nathan: [Sighs]

Mac: I did what you asked -- kept Valentin under surveillance the whole time you were gone.

Anna: Everything's on here -- meetings with Nina and with his lawyer... trips to the bank, to court... a horse sanctuary?

Mac: In Beecher's Corners. He bought up a big property. He's building barns, facilities. Named it for Nina.

Anna: Oh. Well, that's love, I suppose. Wait. This address... isn't that Julian Jerome's building?

Mac: Ava's, too.

Anna: You think he took a meeting with either one of them?

Mac: It's possible, but I couldn't confirm it.

Anna: Wow. What kind of business could Valentin have with the Jeromes?

Mac: Your guess is as good as mine.

Anna: Mm. I don't know. Maybe he didn't have any, you know? Maybe it's just innocent.

Mac: It's entirely possible. Look, I know you have plenty of reasons to suspect Valentin, but maybe he's turned over a new leaf -- left his criminal past behind.

Anna: Well, I'd love to trust that you were right about that. But Valentin's gonna have to prove it to me.

Finn: I understand that Hayden is your friend, and you don't want to intrude on her privacy, but you need to understand that I love her, and she's pregnant with our child, and I need to find her and I can't do that on my own. I need your help.

Curtis: [Sighs] I'm sorry.

Finn: "I'm sorry"?

Curtis: I mean...

Finn: That's it? I know some -- you're just gonna leave me hanging?

Curtis: I know some good PIs.

Finn: Oh, that's great. You know some good PIs. But none of them know her the way you do.

Curtis: It might be an advantage, okay?

Finn: Nah!

Curtis: There's no bias.

Finn: They don't even know where to start looking!

Curtis: I get that you're pissed, okay? Shoot, I would be, too. But Hayden made her choice, just like I have.

Finn: I just... I just want to see her one more time. Just one more time so I can explain myself and try to make things right between us.

Curtis: I get why that works for you, but it obviously doesn't work for Hayden. Okay? Look... let me ask you something. If she'd explained everything to you, would you have let her go?

Finn: Probably not.

Curtis: Exactly my point. Hayden did what was best for Hayden. I know it hurts, but we just got to respect her choices, man.

Finn: You really think it's that easy? I love her too much to let her walk out of my life. I screwed up. And so did Hayden. You know why? Because we're both deeply flawed people who probably never should have found each other, but we did. But are you telling me if you were in my place, you'd just "let her go"? Come on, man. Haven't you ever needed a second chance? Haven't you ever wanted to make amends? Forget I asked. I don't need your help. I'm gonna find her on my own.

Elizabeth: Why don't you just admit it? You're the one who brought Hayden's ex to town and sicced him on her.

Dr. Obrecht: Spare me the righteous indignation. You and Hayden may share common DNA, but you are little more than strangers. You don't even like each other.

Elizabeth: Even if we're not related, she's still a human being who's pregnant, alone, and now on the run.

Dr. Obrecht: I do feel bad for the baby. The little one is innocent, and surely deserved better. But then, so did the young woman forever confined to a wheelchair thanks to Hayden's drunk driving.

Elizabeth: Oh, right, right, right, right, right. Because you're Port Charles' shining example of law and order. You didn't do this to right a wrong. You did this to hurt Hayden and Finn.

Dr. Obrecht: Mm, I righted a wrong and hurt them at the same time. It is, as you Americans say, a "two-fer." Add in the fact that I avenged myself, and it becomes a trifecta!

Elizabeth: You're a bitch. You know that?

Franco: But we are leaving.

Elizabeth: You think you got what you want, but my sister will come back to town, and you will get what you deserve. Not necessarily in that order.

Dr. Obrecht: We'll see about that! [Chuckles]

Mac: Keep scrolling. You'll see that Valentin spent a night in lockup.

Anna: He was arrested?

Mac: Briefly.

Anna: Well, why?

Mac: Uh, let's just say that, uh, things between Spencer and Valentin took an unexpected turn. But don't worry. Everybody's fine. I'm guessing that now Laura is more inclined to work toward peace rather than escalate tensions. Which is great news for you.

Anna: What's that supposed to mean?

Mac: Anna, you spent the better part of a year chasing after Valentin. Now that chase is over. You've got your life back. Isn't your time too precious to spend it consumed by Valentin Cassadine?

Felicia: Tell me! Maxie can't know what?

Amy: It's a secret! And if we told you, it wouldn't be a secret anymore, would it?

Nathan: Yeah, uh, Felicia, this is my friend, Amy Driscoll.

Felicia: Yes, I-I remember you from the Nurses' Ball. You were wonderful.

Amy: Oh, thank you.

Nathan: Uh, Amy, this is Felicia Scorpio, my mother-in-law.

Amy: I know. I went to high school with Maxie. Which is why Nathan asked me to help him figure out what to get Maxie for her birthday.

Nathan: I'm a terrible gift giver.

Amy: Mm.

Felicia: Oh, well, that's very sweet of you, Amy, but Maxie's birthday isn't until Halloween.

Nathan: Well, I-I know that, but I figured a head start couldn't hurt, right?

Felicia: Mm.

Amy: So, we've settled on what we're gonna do, right?

Nathan: Definitely.

Amy: Great. Well, I have to get to work. I'll talk to you later.

Nathan: S-so, uh, what brings you here? You looking for me?

Felicia: I'm meeting Bobbie to discuss a case. But I'm really glad to see you. I think we should talk about what you're up to.

Maxie: Are you kidding me? It's not enough that "Ask Man Landers" almost got my parents arrested, but now he's encouraging hipster beard culture?

Spinelli: I'm sorry. I must confess to some confusion. How did an advice blog get Mac and Felicia in trouble?

Maxie: Mm, does that matter?

Spinelli: Empirically, no, but I just have to wonder why you would take aim at a humble sage just trying to enlighten his fellow man.

Maxie: Humble, my foot! If your guru really wants to help people, why all the subterfuge?

Spinelli: He just values his privacy.

Maxie: Or perhaps he's not the all-knowing player he claims to be. Perhaps if his readers knew the truth, they wouldn't follow his advice like "dude-bro" lemmings. And when I flush him out, my boss will see that I deserve a larger role at the magazine.

Spinelli: Ooh!

Maxie: Or perhaps if I break this story, my boss' boss will see that I deserve to be the boss!

Finn: What was that about?

Dr. Obrecht: Nurse Webber was lamenting her sister's sudden decision to decamp without so much as a fare-thee-well. And on the eve of her wedding. What could have driven a woman in her condition to take such drastic action? Tell me, Dr. Finn -- were the two of you having difficulties? [Clicking tongue] Isn't that always the way? The people who seem the happiest are often concealing sadness... and secrets. What a shame Ms. Barnes felt compelled to run from her problems. When I was unfairly dismissed from this hospital, I, too, considered packing my bags. But then I remembered -- I have friends here, family, people that I love and who love me in return. I knew they would miss me. A better idea, I decided, was to stick it out... and stick it to those who hurt me.

Finn: You did this.

Elizabeth: It's typical Obrecht to go after Hayden instead of admitting it's her own fault she got fired.

Franco: Liesl's always had her own particular way of looking at the world.

Elizabeth: I don't understand why you want anything to do with that woman.

Franco: You know, there's a lot of people in this world, I'm sure, who don't understand why you want to have anything to do with me.

Elizabeth: That's different. You've worked really hard to become a better person. But Obrecht is and will always be an unrepentant...

Franco: Obrecht is a friend of mine, and I don't disagree with you. What she did to Hayden sucks, but... just tell me what I can do now to help you feel better about things.

Elizabeth: Well, you just being here makes me feel better.

[Door closes]

Elizabeth: Tell me about New York.

Franco: Uh, seriously? I already told you. It was fine.

Elizabeth: Tell me.

Franco: The suit's been settled. Most of my artwork's been returned, and... I missed you. I was away for too long. I hated being away from you. I hated being away from the boys, too.

Elizabeth: Yeah, we weren't too happy about that, either.

Franco: So maybe we make a new rule that nobody ever leaves Port Charles?

Elizabeth: Well, that wouldn't be fair. It's a big world out there. I wouldn't want you to miss it.

Franco: You trying to get rid of me?

Elizabeth: [Laughs] No. I'm just saying you should feel free to roam about. As long as you come back. There's always room.

Franco: There's always room in Port Charles?

Elizabeth: In this house. There's always room for you.

Emma: Why does everything have to be so hard?

Anna: Exactly.

Mac: [Chuckles] What's wrong?

Emma: Everything. Leaf asked me to go out with him.

Anna: Oh, that's wonderful news.

Mac: You're not dating a boy! That's not wonderful news.

Anna: No.

Emma: I know. I can't tell Leaf I'll go out with him until I figure things out with Spencer.

Anna: Right.

Mac: [Sighs]

Anna: Okay, correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that you and Spencer were no longer an item.

Emma: We're just friends.

Mac: That's fantastic!

Anna: Yeah.

Emma: Spencer wanted to be more. That's why he gave me this. So if I want to move on with Leaf, I have to find a way to give it back to Spencer.

Spinelli: I applaud your initiative, and, yes, you are eminently suited for a power position in fashion publishing, but...does it have to come at the expense of "Ask Man Landers"?

Maxie: You care more about "Ask Man Landers" than my career path?

Spinelli: Just... there has to be another way.

Maxie: Not one that works this fast. Solving this mystery is the quickest way to a better job. Do you know what happens if I make this work?

Spinelli: Yes. Many good-but-befuddled men lose their North Star?

Maxie: Okay, let me do the math: You unmask "Ask Man Landers'" true identity. I write a daring exposé that sells many, many copies of the magazine. Raises our profile. Our publisher is happy. I get a promotion.

Spinelli: Uh-huh.

Maxie: Nathan realizes he can't stand in the way of my success, so he moves to Portland permanently.

Spinelli: Ah.

Maxie: See how that works?

Spinelli: Yes! But what does that have to do with math?

Maxie: Spinelli, pay attention! Nathan and I will be living in Portland.

Spinelli: Mm.

Maxie: Georgie will have both of her parents in the same city in a four-block area. And all it takes is me exposing one Bunco artist.

Nathan: What exactly is it that you think I'm up to?

Felicia: Oh, you don't have to pretend. I know that you've been working overtime to protect Mac and me from any fallout over our little indiscretion.

Nathan: Oh. Really, it's -- it's not that big of a deal. It's...

Felicia: Oh, well, that's very sweet of you, but Mac and I know how the department works. Asking officer Spencer to look the other way could have some consequences for you down the line. We just want you to know that we really appreciate you protecting us.

Nathan: Felicia, really, you don't have to thank me. It's...

Felicia: Well, of course we do! In addition to being a loving, generous, honest husband to our daughter, you are the best son-in-law we could ever ask for. And, uh, just to be clear, you will never catch us in the bushes again. We are through taking advice from "Ask Man Landers."

Nathan: I'm gonna hold you to that.

Felicia: [Giggles]

Franco: You're asking me to move in with you?

Elizabeth: Well, it's not as though we haven't discussed it before.

Franco: No, but it's been a long time, and I thought maybe you forgot or -- or you changed your mind.

Elizabeth: I think we just got a little sidetracked. But it's time we get back on track. Don't you agree?

Franco: Okay, well, if, and when, you decide to talk to the boys, I think I'd like to be there for that.

Elizabeth: Okay. You know they'll be over the moon. But I am starting to wonder about you.

Franco: No, no. I'm just -- I'm checking in, that's all. I guess. I just -- I mean, this is what you really want, right? This isn't some overreaction to me being out of town for a long time?

Elizabeth: [Chuckles]

Franco: Right? Moving in, it's a big step.

Elizabeth: One I'm ready to take. I've been ready for months.

Franco: Okay. Well, I'll think about it, I guess. You know, I mean, I'm gonna need for you to ask me again, though, like, really nicely. 'Cause I'm not sure that I really heard you right the first time.

Elizabeth: Franco...

Franco: Yes?

Elizabeth: ...Will you --

Franco: Yes.

Finn: You found that weasel Jared. You brought him to town. You made Hayden think that she'd lied to me! You did this! You orchestrated all of this, didn't you?

Dr. Obrecht: All I did was extend an invitation to Hayden's ex-husband. Hayden did the rest.

Finn: You think this is the end of this? It won't be.

Curtis: What's going on here?

Finn: It's nothing. She did this! She did this! She found that guy Jared. She did all this to get back at me because she got herself fired!

Curtis: Okay, that may be, but, um, that woman crazy, man. Leave her alone.

Finn: Yeah, listen. You want to come after me? Come after me. But you had no right to target Hayden.

Dr. Obrecht: [Chuckles] Come, now, Dr. Finn. Your chivalry is wasted on your erstwhile fiancée. In fact, I did you a favor. Your "Hayden," as you call her, is not only a liar and an embezzler -- she crippled a young girl and denied all responsibility. Would you really want to be married to such a person?

Finn: I should have let you rot in jail.

Dr. Obrecht: Yes. You should have.

(The last 7 minutes are missing due to a news break)

On the next "General Hospital" --

Emma (to Anna): You think there's something suspicious about it, don't you?

Valentine (to Nina): What Herculean feats would you have me do to earn back your trust?

Elizabeth (to Griffin): If anyone can save her soul, it's you.

Kiki: Franco! Stop!
