Felicia: This is officially a first for you -- showing up for a book signing.
Mac: You kidding? I can't wait to meet Ask Man Landers and thank him for putting the spice back into my marriage.
Felicia: [Chuckles] Well, let's just hope that you get to him first, before our daughter does.
Maxie: Do I know how to set an aura of mystery or what? I knew having multiple Ask Man Landers would work, and now Nathan's identity is protected, too.
Nathan: Spinelli! I don't know what you think is going on --
Spinelli: I know exactly what's going on here! I've seen you with Nurse Driscoll before.
Nathan: We're just friends.
Spinelli: I-I overheard what you just told her! You are a philanderer, a rake, a skirt-chasing cad!
Nathan: Damn it, Spinelli, I'm not cheating! I'm Ask Man Landers.
[Camera shutters clicking]
Spinelli: [Chuckles] You're Ask Man Landers? [Laughs] Really, Detective, I'd expect more from you. Come on, of all the feeble alibis --
Nathan: It's not an alibi, it's the truth!
Maxie: Spinelli, wait! I can explain everything.
Sharon: Janelle. Long time no see. Except it's Nelle now, right? Nelle Hayes?
Sharon: Is that right? Benson, huh? Well, you can change your name all you want, but you can't change what you've done.
Nelle: I didn't do anything, Sharon. Just tell me what you're doing here, and what do you want?
Sharon: Let me in, and I'll tell you.
Nelle: Forget I asked. I'm not interested.
Sharon: Did you really think you could run away and hide from what you did to my brother?
Carly: You're not attending your grandmother's party? She's being celebrated for all the years she put in at General Hospital. This is a huge honor!
Michael: I know. I realize that. And I'm going to make it up to her. But like I said, Nelle and I won't be there.
Carly: Well, do you have other plans? Can't you reschedule? I mean, she did make a point of inviting you both.
Michael: Mom, to be honest... Nelle isn't comfortable being there.
Carly: Okay. So because Nelle's not comfortable, she expects you to blow off a family celebration? What, is it her or us now?
Sam: Yes, he's awake. He's talking. He looks great. He's back, Monica. Jason is back.
Monica: You -- you did it, Sam! You did it. Medicine aside, it was your devotion and your love that brought him back to us. You wouldn't give up on him, and you wouldn't let us do it, either.
Sam: Well, he had lots of reasons to come back. You were one of them.
Monica: Oh, w-well, you tell my son I love him very, very much and I can't wait to see him.
Elizabeth: Monica? Is Jason awake?
Monica: Yes, he's awake. I-I just -- I just told Elizabeth. Oh, I'm gonna shout it from the rooftops!
Elizabeth: Oh, my God!
Sam: Me, too. And I-I'm not gonna waste another second. Okay, I'll see you soon.
Maxie: What Nathan means is that we're all Ask Man Landers! That's the theme of the book signing, isn't it?
Spinelli: D-don't be taken by your rogue husband's chicanery. He's trying to deflect from the -- the bitter truth, which I saw with my own eyes! I'm sorry, Maxie, but your husband and yon peroxided angel of mercy are having an affair!
Amy: [Scoffs] How dare you?! I am not having an affair with Nathan, and I am a natural blonde!
Felicia: I knew something going on between the two of them! I just didn't want to believe it.
Mac: You knew?
Nina: They're not having an affair.
Quinn: Will somebody please tell me -- excuse me -- what is going on here?!
Maxie: He is not having an affair with her.
Quinn: Is he having an affair with you?
Felicia: No! Of course not! What are you talking about? She's his wife!
Quinn: Oh, you're married? And you're having an affair?
Spinelli: Deception! Villainy! Hypocrisy! The real Ask Man Landers? I think --
Nathan: Stop! Enough is enough.
Elizabeth: How did it happen? When did Jason wake up?
Monica: Last night, and according to the tests they've been running, he's gonna make a full recovery.
Elizabeth: Of course, he is, 'cause this is Jason we're talking about!
Elizabeth: This has got to be your lucky day. Franco, come here. Come on!
Franco: I-I don't think this is really the right time.
Elizabeth: No, this is the perfect time! Just hand it to her.
Monica: Wow. That's -- [Chuckles] That's a lot of zeroes.
Elizabeth: That check is courtesy of Franco's retrospective at the Jerome gallery.
Monica: Oh, right. I heard about it. Uh, obviously, it was very successful.
Elizabeth: Yes, and he wants to share the wealth. He's putting Kiki through med school.
Monica: Well, that's very generous of you.
Franco: Okay. I was hoping that maybe you could earmark some of that for outpatient services.
Monica: Uh, meaning that you would like to have the art-therapy program rebooted, hmm?
Franco: Art is important. Art saved my life. Art has been like a -- like a life raft in a sea of insanity.
Monica: I understand.
Elizabeth: Franco would also like part of that money to be donated to the GH woman's health initiative, especially for women who are victims of violence.
Monica: Wow. Kind of your way of making amends for all your past crimes?
Franco: I was hoping so.
Elizabeth: Here. I'm really proud of him.
Sonny: I wasn't expecting him to be awake and sitting up. It's -- it's a miracle.
Sam: No, I-I know. It's a miracle. I am just -- I am so thankful we have him back.
Jason: Come here a second. Sonny, I-I need you to hear something. [Clears throat] I made a choice to get out of the business and leave that life behind, but I showed up at the warehouse anyway... because you needed me. And I almost died, and I can't put my wife and my kids through that again. So, as much as I love you, I can't take the risk anymore. And I hope you can accept that.
Michael: Mom, you couldn't be more wrong about this. First of all, Nelle encouraged me to go without her. She knew it was a big family occasion, and it was my idea not to go, not hers.
Carly: Okay, so, how do you propose to explain this to your grandmother? Hmm? You gonna send her flowers? Oh, and you can add a card that says, "Sorry, but I chose Nelle over our family."
Michael: You know, I think the flowers are a good idea. I think I'd hold off on the card, though. Why are you making such a big deal out of this?
Carly: I'm not making a big deal out of this, Nelle made a big deal out of it. She has your head so turned around, you can't even see straight.
Michael: No, Mom, I see one thing clearly enough, and that's you need to back off and let me live my life!
Sharon: Nice place. I'm not surprised you landed on your feet. Alley cats usually do. Found another mark to pay your rent?
Nelle: I pay my own rent.
Sharon: Oh, I'll just bet you do... one way or the other. Maybe I got here just in time. Looks like you're making another fast exit.
Nelle: Actually, uh, I was considering moving, but I decided to stay. I'm really happy here in Port Charles, so I'm -- I'm staying put.
Sharon: Oh. You're happy here.
Sharon: Isn't it remarkable how you can just move on? Pretend my brother didn't die and you weren't responsible?
Nelle: I wasn't. Now, I know that you and your family can't accept that, Sharon. But the police and the DA did. Now, if you know what's good for you, you will leave right now and get on the next flight back to Florida.
Sharon: What are you gonna do if I don't? Kill me like you killed my brother?
Monica: Well, I will discuss reinstating the art program at the next board meeting. In the meantime, I'm going to clear my schedule and go see my son. Excuse me.
Franco: Yeah. You should go, too. You should. I'm sure Epiphany can find someone to cover your shift.
Elizabeth: No, that's okay. I'll see Jason later.
Franco: I don't think Jake would approve of you not checking up on his father's recovery first hand.
Elizabeth: Come with me.
Franco: Uh, Jason doesn't want to see me any day ever, much less the first day he wakes up from a coma.
Elizabeth: Don't you have questions about your childhood?
Franco: No, 'cause my mother said the boy in the photograph was just some kid from the neighborhood. If you are gonna go, I would suggest that maybe you should change first, because, you know, you don't want the other people in the long-term care facility putting you to work.
Elizabeth: You know, it's a really nice thing you did with that check. By helping this hospital, you're helping a lot of people.
Franco: It was also kind of a self-serving gesture.
Elizabeth: It's called a win-win.
André: Right this way.
Franco: What you got there?
André: Something I think you'll be happy to see. Let it out of the case, carefully.
Franco: You... you're the anonymous buyer.
Sonny: Jason, I respect your decision to step away from the business, and I'm sorry that you got caught up in me trying to leave it. It shouldn't have happened. And because you were trying to protect me, it almost cost you your life.
Jason: Well, look, that was my choice to go in that warehouse, and I don't regret it. I've got to step back. I've gotta start being the man who I want to be for my family. Look, I won't miss my kids growing up. I don't want to be some picture on the mantelpiece that they point at and say, "That used to be my dad." I want to be there for them, and I want them to be there for me.
Sonny: I want that, too.
Jason: I know you do. I know you do. I made a promise to Sam that I was going to find a new life, but bit by bit, I found myself being pulled back in. And that's on me, because sometimes I miss it, but it can't happen anymore. I've got to find a new way to be me.
Sam: Which is with your family.
Sam: I hope you can understand that.
Sonny: I understand. You know what? I wish you and your family all the happiness in the world, because you both deserve it.
Nelle: Now, I'll admit, I may not be the sweet, innocent girl that you thought your brother deserved, but I'm a survivor. That's something that you and your precious boarding-school background can't begin to comprehend. That's why Zach loved me, because I made it on my own. Nothing was handed to me. I had to fight for everything that I wanted.
Sharon: Listen to you: the scrappy little girl from the wrong side of the tracks. I can see how you played Zach. Turned him against your whole family until you were the center of his universe. Just you and him against the world. And when Zach was out there in that water, and his kayak began to sink, all he had was you to save him. I wonder if you realized then that his whole universe was based on an illusion. Did he know? Could you tell he saw the truth when he looked into those cold blue eyes of yours just before he took his last breath?
Nelle: Get out!
Sharon: Not until I get what I came for.
Carly: Do me a favor: Don't be a stranger once you and Nelle start living together.
Michael: What are you talking about?
Carly: What am I talking about? Nelle's building was going condo, and she turned on her poor-me Nelle act, and you jumped in and you bought that apartment. I mean, I'm sure she gratefully asked you to move in with her.
Michael: That is all kinds of wrong, I don't even know where to start. Let me start with: I'm not an idiot, Mom. And Nelle and I, we're not living together. I'm still at the Quartermaine's, and she never asked me to buy her anything. It was my idea to buy the apartment.
Carly: I bet. I bet.
Michael: Well, then, you think she played me, huh? You think she got me to do what she wanted?
Carly: Just don't let her isolate you from us, okay? Promise me that.
Michael: Coffee's getting cold. I've got to go.
Carly: Michael, Michael...
[Cell phone rings]
Carly: [Sighs] Honey, I just got in a ...
Sonny: I'm at the long-term care facility. Jason's awake.
Carly: I'm on my way.
Nathan: All right, all these guys they're all imposters, okay? There's only one Ask Man Landers, and you're looking at him.
Spinelli: That's an admirable attempt at deflection, but it doesn't explain your clandestine relationship with your strumpet.
Amy: Not that I owe you an explanation, but just for the record, I am not his strumpet, his doxy, or his paramour.
Nathan: Amy's my agent.
Amy: Manager. I only take 5% [Chuckles].
Nina: Are you sure about this?
Nina: Okay. Everybody, uh, you all know that Crimson has the exclusive and confidential interview with the face of Ask Man Landers, right? So, now that he has decided to come out of anonymity, I just wanted to introduce to you all the true face of Ask Man Landers, and that is my brother, Nathan West.
Quinn: And I promised Ask Man Landers, and I always deliver.
Maxie: So, there goes my chance to impress Nina and protect Nathan's identity.
Spinelli: Fear not. My sharp old instincts tell me there is much more to this story.
Maxie: Spinelli, you don't completely understand what is going on here.
Spinelli: I understand that that much time away from you might have been too much for your spouse.
Quinn: Uh, no more photos right now, thank you very much. There will be plenty of time when Ask Man Landers is greeting his adoring public and handing out signed copies of his book.
Nathan: Quinn, I'm going to need a minute with my wife.
Quinn: O-of course. Go look after Trixie.
Quinn: Whatever. But make it fast, okay? I'll set everything up here.
Nathan: Hey. How are you holding up?
Maxie: Oh. Um, aside from completely failing to keep you anonymous and ruining any chance of getting Nina to hire me again? I'm doing peachy.
Nathan: Max, look. When Spinelli accused me of having an affair with Amy, the only thing that mattered to me was that he world knew that I would never do that to you. Y-you're the only woman that I love. You're the only woman that I ever will love. And I didn't want you to doubt that for a minute.
Nina: Okay. Uh, Quinn says that some people are asking to talk to you.
Maxie: Well, your adoring public awaits.
Nathan: I'm just gonna go take care of them, and we'll get out of here, all right? Piece -- piece of cake.
Maxie: Not really. You might be the face of the brand, but it's Amy's advice. And if that ever gets out --
Nathan: It won't.
Nina: Yeah, we're just gonna make sure it doesn't, okay? Come on.
Maxie: So, what are you guys doing here?
Felicia: Meeting your father's new guru, except we've known him all along. Why didn't you tell us?
Amy: [Sighs] When I met you outside your friend's ICU, you seemed so sweet and genuine. Boy, did I read you wrong.
Spinelli: I-I most humbly apologize for a-accusing you of trying to wreck Maxie's marriage.
Amy: Do you always rush to judgments like that?
Spinelli: Hardly...ever. Um, but indeed, I-I did violate one of the primary tenets of investigation. I interpreted the evidence to fit my hypothesis rather than keeping an open mind.
Amy: [Chuckles] You should probably work on that. Excuse me.
Spinelli: Oh! One last question, [Chuckles] Lest I let my imagination run wild and leap to another erroneous conclusion. [Chuckles]
Amy: Fine. What?
Spinelli: Hard-working nurse at GH turns out to be a powerhouse literary manager. I mean, that's -- that's -- that's quite an accomplishment.
Spinelli: What's your secret?
Franco: You twisted my arm into showing this, but... it was never my intention to sell it. What made you buy it?
André: Some people like to spend money chasing golf balls. I like to invest in works of art. And this piece... it gives a glimpse into the artist's imagination. That's what spoke to me.
Franco: What if it wasn't imagination?
Jason: Hey, hey, what took you so long?
Jason: Easy, easy, easy.
Carly: Welcome back. It's so good to see you.
Jason: Mm, it's good to see you. [Chuckles] Another tricky reappearance. You have a knack for being there for them.
Carly: Yeah, let's not do that stupid routine anymore. The next time you try to play hero -- mm. Can't do that, huh? [Laughs]
Jason: No. That won't be happening anymore.
Jason: I'm done dodging bullets. I'm certainly not fond of catching them.
Jason: Which I guess, uh, is incentive to change.
Carly: What does that mean?
Sonny: What it means is in order for him to walk into his new life, he has to... walk away from us.
Nelle: In case you're considering some sort of civil suit, news flash -- I have nothing. I live paycheck to paycheck. I lease my car. I rent my apartment. There is nothing of value that you can take from me!
Sharon: I don't want anything from you. I came for what rightfully belongs to my family.
Nelle: I don't have anything of yours. In fact, your family made sure that I only left with the bus fare in my purse and the clothes on my back!
Sharon: That "struggling to survive" act is wearing thin. I know who and what you are. You may have dodged a murder charge, but you're still a common thief.
Michael: Excuse me. Who are you, and what are you doing here?
Franco: All right. This whole thing's confidential, right?
André: Uh, okay. Are you my patient now?
Franco: [Clears throat]
André: These -- those are these guys?
Franco: Yeah. You may or may not already know this about me, but for a long time, I had this obsession. I thought that I had this connection to Jason Morgan. I actually thought at one point that we were twins. Turns out we were not. Um, but lately, I've been having these kind of... feelings again, and so I went to talk to my mom about it -- my adoptive mom, not my real mom, who, parenthetically, is a complete lunatic. But Betsy Frank, my adoptive mom, confirmed that this, in fact, me and that this, in fact, is a twin. Not my twin, but a twin. He is Jason Morgan's twin, and his name is Andréw.
André: Okay. Why are you and Andréw dressed alike?
Franco: Well, it's convoluted, but Andréw and Jason's birth mother, Susan Moore, gave Andréw to my mother, Betsy Frank, to raise as her own. So for the first three years of my life, I thought I had a brother.
André: Why only three years?
Franco: Well, 'cause he had a bad heart, so he died. And my mom didn't want me to be upset, didn't want me to grieve. So she told me that he was my imaginary friend. Yeah. No, I know, it's a little weird, but I-it would totally make sense if you knew my mom, because she's always trying to protect me 'cause she loves me. She loves me a lot. But Betsy's always been emotionally fragile... so she doesn't always make the best decisions. But... for my whole life, I've been missing my brother. And I didn't even know he was real.
Carly: You have to walk away from us?
Jason: I... no, it's... for the majority of my life, I was able to be there for Sonny and for you and the kids. [Sighs] And the last couple of years, I, uh -- I tried to straddle both worlds, distance myself from the business... but be available for my friend if he needs me. It's just not working anymore. It's gotta stop. I gotta be there for my family, and you have to understand that.
Carly: Of course.
Jason: And I get that Sonny's situation... is a bit more complicated. And I hope he gets out of the business, I-I do. But for whatever reason, if he can't do that... I can't help in that world anymore.
Sam: Carly, Sonny... I just -- I-I want you to know that this is his decision. I'm not -- I'm not pushing this on him. I-I hope you respect our choice, though.
Carly: Of course. Of course.
Elizabeth: Excuse me. The nurse on duty said there were too many visitors in this room, but Monica here pulled rank.
Jason: Oh, yeah? Chief of staff, huh?
Sam: Come on in!
Monica: No, as your mother. Oh, it's good to see you. [Smooches] Don't you dare do something like this again.
Sonny: You okay?
Carly: Yeah. Just sad. I-I know Jason's been pulling away for a long time. And it's fair. It's his life. He should do what he wants to do. I'll just always miss who he used to be.
Nelle: Michael, this is Sharon Grant, Zach's sister.
Sharon: So you're Michael Corinthos. Well-done, once again.
Michael: All right. Uh, Miss Grant, we're sorry for your loss, but, um, it's time for you to go.
Sharon: Before I go, you still have something that belongs to my family. I want the ring, Nelle.
Nelle: The ring? You mean -- you mean my engagement ring?
Sharon: Oh, it's not yours. It belonged to my grandmother. And if you want to invoke the "it was a gift" excuse, just know that the courts don't necessarily see it that way.
Nelle: You know, it must be really nice to have lawyers on speed dial. But there's -- there's no need for another court battle. I-I don't have the ring. I-I lost it.
Amy: I've been a fan of "Ask Man Landers" from the start. And when there was an opportunity to expand his platform with a publishing deal, I jumped right in. [Chuckles]
Spinelli: So Nathan turned to a nurse to be his manager?
Amy: Astounding, I know. Some nurses have business smarts, even though we empty bedpans.
Nathan: Well, I needed somebody that I could trust, somebody who'd work to protect my identity and work hard on my behalf. And that person was Amy.
Spinelli: You are quite the team. I-I suppose that's why I got the wrong idea about your relationship. Again, my -- my apologies.
Nathan: No harm, no foul.
Spinelli: Oh, hey! By the way, what do you think of my, uh, latest tonsorial effort?
Amy: He means --
Spinelli: My -- my beard. See -- see, Maxie doesn't like it, but I figured... I'd Ask Man Landers.
Nathan: Well, I'm gonna have to go with Max on this one. Not your best look.
Spinelli: Really? That's -- that's odd, since you're the one who told "beardless in Portland" to grow it out.
Amy: We get so many letters. You can't possibly expect the man behind the blog to remember them all.
Nathan: So -- so, "Beardless in Portland" is you? Well, o-of course I encouraged it, but I can't be expected to know what a beard looks like on any one person in particular. A-and I'd have to say, to hell with what anybody thinks. What's important is if it makes you happy.
Spinelli: That's amazing! You see, I-I asked Amy what she thought of it, and -- and she told me the same thing, almost word for word. I... you two really are in sync.
Felicia: Can we borrow the man of the hour a moment?
Nathan: Yeah, sure.
Amy: Excuse me.
Nathan: Okay, look, I know this comes as a shock to -- to both of you.
Mac: You know, my first impulse was to deck you. After all, you're the one that almost got us arrested.
Nathan: I didn't tell you to do anything in the bushes. That's all on you.
Felicia: Oh, and he did get Valerie to look the other way.
Mac: And you did spice things up for us, so I guess I owe you one.
Felicia: We got several copies to give as Christmas presents.
Maxie: Okay. Time to go. I've shared my wonderfully talented husband long enough. [Chuckles]
Nathan: Let's go.
Maxie: Okay. [Sighs] Oh, my gosh.
Nathan: Spinelli knows, okay? He's asking tough questions, and this is not the time or the place to answer them.
Nina: Um, hey. [Chuckles] You're not leaving yet. Crimson earned an exclusive, and I intend to collect, so... let's go.
Nathan: I'm sorry.
Sharon: You lost my grandmother's diamond engagement ring? You're a lot of things, but careless isn't one of them.
Nelle: I have been forced to move so many times, picking up and grabbing my things at a moment's notice. I-it was -- it was lost somehow. I mean, you can go ahead and search my apartment if it makes you feel better, but you're not gonna find it.
Sharon: Of course not. You probably have it stashed in a safe-deposit box.
Michael: I think we're done here.
Sharon: This isn't over. Your damsel in distress is a cold-blooded killer. Oh, and by the way, Nelle... your case is still open. My family won't rest until you're behind bars.
Michael: Miss Grant, you've been asked to leave. And just so we're clear, you're not the only one with lawyers on speed dial.
Sharon: You're very gallant, sticking up for her. Zach would have liked you. So for his sake, I'll give you the warning no one gave him. This simpering bitch is poison. My brother found out the hard way. I hope you don't, too.
Carly: You know what else I miss? How I could count on Jason to get through to Michael. I guess there's no sense in asking him to do that now, huh?
Sonny: Why are we talking about Michael?
Carly: Because I spoke to Sharon Grant.
Carly: I know you told me not to pursue it, but she called, so I had to take the call. I needed to know what she had to say about Nelle.
Sonny: Is that why you and Michael had the flare-up?
Carly: No, no, Michael doesn't know about Sharon or that I spoke to her, but he's going down the same path as her brother. He is. He's believing what he wants to believe, no matter what anyone has to say about Nelle.
Sonny: Is that what she told you?
Carly: [Sighs] Sharon said that Nelle manipulated her brother and isolated him from the family.
Sonny: Michael wouldn't fall for that. He -- family's too important to him. He wouldn't let anything come between us.
Carly: Right. That's the point, Sonny. He already has.
Monica: Danny is gonna be over the moon about this.
Sam: I know. I can't wait to tell him in person. I'm gonna have to leave you for a couple hours, though.
Jason: That's okay. I'm not going anywhere. I'm not gonna vanish in a puff of smoke.
Sam: You better not, 'cause I'm looking forward for you to be around for a very long, long time.
Monica: And I second that.
Elizabeth: And Jake and I agree. He's gonna be so relieved you're okay.
Jason: How's he doing?
Elizabeth: He's good. Obviously, he's been worried about you, but overall, he's great.
Jason: How's his mom doing?
Elizabeth: Life's good. Better, now that you're awake. [Chuckles]
Jason: That include Franco? It's okay, you can -- you can talk about him.
Elizabeth: Thank you. Uh, believe it or not, Franco's in a really good place right now.
Franco: I've heard so many convoluted versions of my own past, where I'm from. Jason Morgan was twin, Jason Morgan wasn't my twin. I don't know what -- every iteration just never seemed...real to me. But Drew seemed real. I remember him. The problem is, I can't tell anybody about this, right? I had to tell Elizabeth that the kid in the picture was some neighbor kid that I used to play with.
André: So you lied.
Franco: I didn't wanna worry her.
André: Is that the only reason?
Franco: I -- what are you implying?
André: Well, Elizabeth has been your greatest champion. It's obvious you love her. So you must have had a compelling reason for lying, more than simply acceding to your mother's wishes. So what is it, Franco? What are you afraid of?
Quinn: To the one and only Ask Man Landers!
Mac: Hear, hear! Yes.
[Cheers and applause]
Spinelli: Your spouse appears surprisingly comfortable in the spotlight.
Maxie: Are you implying that's a bad thing?
Spinelli: I -- I imply nothing.
Maxie: Please. You hate this whole thing.
Spinelli: "Hate" is a very strong word. I simply have... misgivings.
Maxie: Okay. Well, keep those misgivings to yourself. I happen to know the proceeds of this book go to a really good cause. It's a win-win for everyone.
Spinelli: Including you, Maximista?
Michael: Hey. Just -- just stop. Stop, stop, stop. Have some cold coffee and just try not to worry, okay?
Nelle: Right. You know, now that Sharon's tracked me down, it's only a matter of time before there's another knock at the door with -- with a subpoena or a certified letter. [Sighs] I just feel like -- I feel like Zach's death is gonna haunt me for the rest of my life.
[Cell phone ringing]
Nina: Hey, uh, Nelle, sorry to bother you, but it's all hands on deck. Listen, we have the exclusive scoop to "Ask Man Landers," but we're not gonna have it for long. Can you come to the Metro Court, please?
Nelle: Yeah, yeah. I'll be right there. I have to go into work.
Michael: Oh, good. It'll take your mind off Sharon. You go, and I-I'll finish opening up these boxes.
Nelle: You sure?
Michael: Yeah, I'm sure. As your landlord, I cannot possibly leave your apartment like this.
Michael: [Chuckles] Go.
Michael: [Sighs when he finds Nelle's engagement ring]
Carly: It starts small, like Michael missing my mom's celebration for her time at the hospital, but there's gonna be more! Nelle is gonna keep finding excuses to keep Michael all to herself!
Sonny: You keep forgetting, Carly, Michael's his own man. Y-you know what? Michael can be kind of forgiving, and he gives people the benefit of the doubt. But in the end, he's a realist, he's practical, and he's smart. You push Michael too far. If Nelle shows her true colors... he'll get rid of her.
Carly: Not if it's too late.
Elizabeth: I can't wait to see Jake's face. He's gonna be so thrilled to see you. I'll bring him by soon, okay?
Jason: Yeah, please do. Give him a hug for me. And Danny, too.
Monica: Okay. I'm gonna tell Danny that his mother's gonna come by and see him soon and tell him something very important.
Sam: [Chuckles] Thank you.
Elizabeth: Take care. See you soon.
Sam: Bye. I know how hard it was to say that to Sonny and Carly. But I want you to know how happy I am that you are embracing our new life, even if it means stepping away from theirs.
Jason: Look, they get to choose how to live their life. My priority is my family.
Sam: Speaking of... I have to call my mom and my sisters.
Jason: Okay. I love you.
Sam: I love you.
Jason: [Groans] [Grunts]
Franco: If I tell Elizabeth that Jason has a twin brother, that's kind of a bid deal, don't you think? It means Jake had an uncle he never knew about.
André: Would that be a bad thing? Or are you afraid Elizabeth might find out something else about you?
Franco: So, uh... we're done.
André: That's far too much for one session. I'll use the rest as a down payment on our next one.
Franco: I don't think there's gonna be a follow-up.
Jason: "Franco: To hell and back." Best part of a coma is I got to miss this.
