Okay. You okay?
Yeah, I'm fine.
Okay. What was that, 35 seconds this time? It's okay. You were in a coma for four weeks.
You're doing great.
Listen, I'm surprised you're up and about at all. Yes. Thank you. See? But now that you are safe in bed, you, Miss, let's go. No. I can reschedule. It's not a big deal. No, it's a big deal. You need to take care of yourself.
What he said.
I am. No, you're taking care of me. I passed my toxo test with flying colors. You did? Well, go pass another one. All right, well, if not for him, then do it for your worrywart mother. Okay. All right. Fine. But what are you gonna do when I'm gone?
Bye. I will count the seconds until you are back. Good luck. I'm sure I can think of something to keep myself occupied. All right. I got to head back to GH and open up the art therapy room. Thank you so much for lunch. All you had was coffee. It's hard for me to eat when I'm nervous.
Oh, you're going to be fine.
Thank you. And we'll be by in a little bit to support you, but first, there's a certain someone who just woke up from a really long nap, and he's requesting to see you. We're visiting dad? Who do you think the cookies are for? Yes! But I get one, right? Yes, you get one. Hey, good luck, not that you need it.
Thank you. I'll tell Dad you said hi. O-kay. You do that.
Yes. He's lucky to be alive. I thought that second injection might kill him, which would be an even bigger disruption. [Scoffs] That's the problem with greed -- always comes back to bite you. They offered me a fortune to keep him, but he's more trouble than he's worth. Can't wait to get him out of here.
Who's there? They're transporting him today. Make a hard copy of all of his records. They don't want any digital footprint, nothing that can be hacked. They want no trace he was ever here.
It's all pop-culture trivia, but it gets pretty intense.
Ahh. -The new guy.
Whoa, he looks -- -he looks exactly like me.
Separated at birth much? We should switch name tags, and no one would know who was who. Jamie, you seriously think you look like him? Uh, I'm pretty good with comparisons. Like how progressive helps people save money by comparing rates, even if we're not the lowest. Even if we're not the lowest. Whoa! Wow. I mean, the outfit helps, but pretty great. Look at us.
Why are you here? I had to see you. Even like this? Especially like this. You have no idea how beautiful you are. -No. I... -shh-shh-shh-shh. It's okay. [Exhales sharply] Office hours are from 10:00 to 12:00. Sorry. I couldn't wait. Kristina. Hi. Since when do you wear glasses? Oh, um [Chuckles] I just got them last year. They're for reading. I like them. Very studious. Thanks. So, what can I do for you? I wanted to give you the good news in person. My brother-in-law's awake. [Gasps] Really? Talking, moving, back to his old self. [Sighs] That's amazing. Your family must be so relieved. Yeah, we are. I mean, molly may miss a class or two. She wants to help Sam get Jason situated. Of course. Molly clearly has a big heart. It's a Davis thing. We go the extra mile for the people that we care about. Like I just did... for you.
Hi. Hey, I thought -- I thought you couldn't make lunch. I thought so, too. I figured the ask man Landers "bombshell" would have everybody at crimson working overtime, but we all pulled together and banged out the new feature, no problem. -That's great. -Yeah, especially since I am starving, as you must have been to have ordered two lunches. Oh, no.
[Chuckles] That's not mine. It's mine.
Sam: Well, what do you know. Dr. Bensch isn't able to see me because we're early. No. -No, what? -No. We're waiting, and I'm not going to apologize for being a nag about your health, because it's a mother's prerogative. I know, mom, but these are not normal circumstances. Jason is fine. You can take 45 minutes to take care of your health. What if you relapse? [Sighing] Okay. All right, you're right. Thank you for dragging me here. You're welcome. I just don't like the idea of Jason being alone. Well, if it'll make you feel any better, I can make sure that somebody visits him 24/7. Oh, yeah, because he would love that. Your sisters will be happy to help. Ugh, I don't think so. -Molly can read to him.
Oh, no. Or Kristina can talk his ear off... oh, please. -...About anything. -About anything.
That's better. Some alone time is exactly what Jason needs. Good. Now, have you, uh, thought about telling your father about Jason? Can you please not call him that? Oh, sorry. Have you thought about telling Julian about any of this, about Jason? I mean, I think somebody should tell him. What, and that somebody should be you?
Elizabeth: Up for some visitors?
Dad! Go easy, Jake. Oh, yeah. Oh, you kidding me? This is exactly what I need. No, no, I can't. Look at yourself. I'll do it for you. You're as gorgeous as ever. Do you really think so? To look at, anyway. If only you worked as hard to heal your soul as you have your face.
[Breathing heavily] Anna, hey. Uh, it's -- it's Griffin. I know you have a lot going on right now, but I-I still need answers about Ava. Uh, I was able to narrow down the location of the clinic, but I still don't have an exact address. So, if you can help me, just, uh, call me back, please.
[Locker door slams]
Rough morning, huh? What are you doing here? Oh, I'm the art therapist. They've resurrected the art therapy program. Right. Elizabeth told me about your art show.
Did she, now?
Yeah. Uh, wait. It was at Ava's, uh, gallery, wasn't it? Did -- have you been in contact with her? Not recently. You didn't coordinate with her for the opening? No. She has people to do that. So you have no idea where she is. No idea. Wow, that really stresses you out. Why? -You all right?
Yeah. Just the -- the latest in a string of bad dreams. I'll prescribe something to help you sleep. That won't be necessary. The first procedure went smoothly. I want you well rested before the next. You wouldn't want to jeopardize your restoration, would you?
Dr. Bensch, we meet at last. Oh, call me David, please.
[Chuckles] Isn't that a little too familiar for you? Well, the amount Kiki goes on and on about you... I don't talk about you that much. ...I think we've reached a first-name basis. Uh, it's just that Kiki mentioned you like to keep the work and personal separate. Oh, no. The -- don't misunderstand. I admire your taste in gift baskets, but sending tequila to a hospital staff member while she's on duty -- not the best idea. Well, don't let me interrupt. No. I-I was... going, actually. -Bummer. -Hey. No, no, no, no. -I got this. -No, you don't. Well, we're at least going to split it. No. Just promise me you pay it forward. One day, you do the same for another up-and-comer like yourself. Yeah, if I up-and-become a doctor. You will. Just a matter of time. Hear, hear. Hey, good to see you, Dylan. You, too. And it's Dillon with an "I." I can always hear it in people's voices when they say it wrong in their heads. Huh. See you at the hospital. Thanks for lunch. Anytime. Oh, and, "Dillon with an I," help yourself to the rest of my fries if you're hungry. [Chuckles] Tuna salad. Does he know I hate tuna? Yeah. I think that's exactly why he ordered it.
"I can hear it when people spell it wrong in their heads"? It's a gift. So is, uh, David your mentor now? Why? Does that make you jealous? You hear yourself, right? Sam, please don't make a big deal out of this. All I said was that maybe -- that someone should tell Julian about Jason. Is that a crime? I mean, don't you think he might appreciate knowing -- I don't give a damn what Julian would appreciate. I care about you, and you're doing so well right now. You got your job back. You're sober. Why would you jeopardize that? Honey, one talk with Julian is not going to send me into a tailspin. Ugh, and why would you take the risk with Julian when you can avoid the situation altogether? So how'd the science fair go? Your volcano win first place like you hoped? How did you -- did you tell dad about my science fair? No. You did, buddy, when you and Danny came to visit. You could hear me? [Sighs] Yeah. I could. Well, but you were asleep. It's a tricky thing. My eyes were closed, but I can tell when someone's in the room. I could hear you talking to me. I heard you asked me to respond to you, but I wasn't strong enough yet. So I'm sorry. Well, what else do you remember? Oh, buddy, lots of things. But my favorite was when you and your brother sang to me.
My old man, he played one
[Chuckling] No way. Jason, that's incredible. Look, you two, you really helped me get out of this, helped me come back. So thank you. You're welcome. One thing I know I didn't tell you about is the project I made for Grandma.
Uh-oh. -Oh, right. It's in my purse.
Go get it.
I can't wait. [Sighs] He seems to be doing pretty well with all this. It wasn't easy, but he's so strong. Wonder where he gets that from. I don't know. And when things were tough, we were there to lift him up. You and Franco. What's going on with Ava? She owe you money or something? No. No. Nothing like that. I'm afraid she might be in trouble. Oh. Ava's kind of trouble is usually contagious, like "go get yourself a hazmat suit" contagious. I'll have to take my chances. Your funeral, dude. Hey, uh, can you do me a favor? Uh, if you speak to her, if you hear from her... yeah. I'll tell her that you're looking for her, doctor. Pastor. Friend.
[Scoffs] Come on. That's crazy. You and Ava friends? You guys are, like, polar opposites, yin and yang, like, diametrically opposed. Like, a lot like you and Elizabeth. Oh! Yeah.
[Gasps] You really are into Ava.
[Laughing] Oh! Come on, Ava. Forget about mystery man and focus on yourself. You're good at that, aren't you? You came here to heal, not to meddle in the affairs of strangers. Well, of course, you did promise to help him. But is a promise really valid if he wasn't even awake to hear it? Who's going to call you on a vow made to an unconscious man?
[Sighs heavily] I know exactly who.
[Paper clip clinks]
In touch with his artistic side. Yeah. Those were old paintings. There's nothing new. But he did get the art therapy program up and running again at GH.
Mm-hmm. So you'll be working together, living together -- so much togetherness. Is that a problem for you? Hey, it's your life. You can do -- hey, buddy. [Clears throat] All right. Let's see this project we're working on. Grandma Monica dropped off this box of old pictures sitting around, and so I decided to make a slide show with them. Oh, that's cool. Oh, I haven't seen that in years. You put a lot of work into this. He did. Franco helped, too. There's still a bunch more to organize. And some of them, I decided not to put in, like the one of you and Franco together. You know what? Whatever's going on with you and Ava is none of my business. Thank you. Hey! Tell me. How'd you get Monica to bring back the art therapy program? Money, lots and lots of money -- proceeds from my art show. Oh, it was a big hit, huh? For reasons inexplicable, people enjoy my artwork. I'm sure it must have been pretty intense being around all those old pieces again. Bet it stirred up some feelings. You have been talking to my girlfriend. More accurately, she came to talk to me. She told me about one painting in particular with two boys that seemed to really haunt you somehow. So, you and Ava, huh? Sitting in a tree? I thought this was none of your business. Hey. I-I'm just -- come on. A priest and -- and a criminal? That's juicy.
That's juicy stuff.
There's no "me and Ava." But you want there to be. I don't know. I don't know what I want. It's just -- it's -- confusing?
Yes. Welcome to my world. All I do know is that Ava is halfway around the globe, and she is alone and hurting. So, then, what are you doing here? Go find her. You look marginally less dead. How do you feel?
Patient 6: Thank you for this. You're welcome. You're not seriously going to get that off with just a paper clip, are you? You should go. -And miss this? -If they find you in here, it's not going to be good. I'll take my chances. You don't feel like I'm lecturing you? Uh, you love me, and I'm grateful. Because I haven't had a perfect scorecard, you know? When it comes to love, I tend to... veer in the direction of danger. I mean, I could have chosen a dentist or a banker, but I didn't. I chose Jason. And I would not have changed a second of our life together, but I'm just saying it...wasn't always easy. "Easy" is not a word I would use to describe your journey with Jason. But you have children now, and you don't want to make the mistakes that I made with my children. Not molly -- she's the good one. But the rest of us don't make the wisest decisions when it comes to love. -Yeah. You're right. -We get so blinded by how good it feels in the moment that we can't see or hear anything but that. So we don't see the red flags. We don't hear the whistles of disaster going off. I mean, look at your sister, Kristina. What did you do? [Sighs] Check this out. -[Sighs] -Barely passed statistics, and when I say, "barely," I mean barely. It's not the end of the world.
This is a very hard class. -It's not just the one. That grade is representative of all the others. Well, I don't know what I could do. I wish I could help, but you know business and economics are not my forte. Well, I already got help. That's my grade with a leg up from tutoring, which is not very encouraging. So, I've been thinking a lot about it, and I feel like the universe is trying to tell me something. Yeah. [Chuckles] To study more. Or to give it up. You know, maybe I'm just -not cut out to get my MBA.
Kristina -- maybe I should be focusing on real-world experience, like managing Perks for my father. You keep saying "maybe," but why am I getting the feeling that whatever's going to happen is already a done deal? Still so perceptive. Did you quit business school? I prefer the term "withdraw from classes," -but yes. -No, why?! Why? Well, the perks thing, like I just said, and... so that there are no more obstacles to us seeing each other.
Obviously, I'm jealous. I mean, who wouldn't be? Dr. Bensch gets to spend all day with you, goes to bat for you, takes you on his rounds, gets you into special, accelerated med school programs. Now he's buying you lunch. -It was a sandwich.
And fries. That's, like, huge. Okay. [Chuckles] I spend plenty of time with other people at the hospital. It's not all-Bensch, all the time. But a lot of the time. Some of the time, yeah. But I'm also really busy with school and my study group... -and you. -I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm grateful to... tuna salad. And I know if it wasn't for him, you wouldn't be on the fast track to becoming a doctor. I just wish that I was the one doing the helping. Well, you help me in plenty of other ways. Oh, yeah? Are you kidding? How would I function without the back rubs and the foot rubs and the conversation about something -- anything -- other than medicine? That is true. I do offer those things. You offer way more. How about if I take you up on one of those offers tonight? That can be arranged.
Walk me out?
I'm walking you to GH.
Ooh. Even better. Hey, you're not actually jealous, right? Of a middle-aged guy in blue scrubs?
[Chuckles] You know what you need? A lobotomy? Stop. No. Something slightly less drastic, a little bit more fun. You need to get out there. -Out where? -In the dating pool. Oh, God. No.
Because what? Oh. Don't tell me you're still holding a torch for Julian. It's more like a match. Well, either way, mom, the best way to get over someone is to move on. To where? -To whom? -I don't know. There are a ton of eligible bachelors in Port Charles. -Pick one.
Sam? Sorry to keep you waiting. Dr. Bensch. Hi. This is my mother, Alexis Davis. -How are you? -Hello. -Very nice to meet you.
Dr. David Bensch.
Yes, and thank you so much for taking care of my daughter. -My pleasure. -Uh, and your job. [Chuckles] Uh, yeah. That, too. Speaking of which, I've already reviewed your blood work results, so you should be in and out of here. -Oh, that's -- that's great.
Yeah. The sooner I can get back to Jason, the better. Hmm. How's he doing? Good. He's doing great. In fact, you know what? We were thinking about throwing a party once he gets home.
Yeah. Yes. And we wanted to invite everyone who had a hand in taking care of us, and you are invited. I'm extending an invitation, and you can bring your girlfriend or boyfriend, whichever.
Well, I am single, and straight. You are? Oh. How about that. Handsome doctor, unattached. What are the odds? Going after Ava is easier said than done. Well, do you have any idea where she is? Come here. Russia. She's in a-a clinic in St. Petersburg. Great. What's the holdup? I don't have a-a name. I-I don't know an exact address. You grab a Russian-English dictionary. You hop on the next flight.
Great plan. Great.
Thanks. Oh, sarcasm? Uh... so, I get my trusty dictionary. I hop on a flight to St. Petersburg. Well, what do I do when I get there? I just wander the streets, question every strange I encounter? No, not every stranger, just the strangers who are doctors and nurses. You hit up every hospital, and somebody's got to know about this clinic that you're talking about. And they'll point you in the right direction. I have a friend. She's trying to get me some information. I'm just waiting for her to call me back. That's great. Listen. Here's the thing. You can either wait in Russia and be productive, or you can wait here wringing your hands. It's your call. I cannot believe you just did that. You need to get back to your room. Well, what happens now? I'm going home. Well, do you have money? Do you have a passport? Do you even have a change of clothes?
I'm going to figure that out. -You better do it quick. I overheard Klein last night after he gave you the second injection. They're planning on moving you today.
Nurse: 6 is right at the end of the hall. Hide! Go. Monica had a picture of me and Franco, together? No, Franco had it. No, it wasn't you. It was a picture of Franco and his neighbor when they were little. How little? I don't know. Like 3, I would say. The neighbor kid had blond hair and blue eyes, and he did look a lot like you when you were that age, but I explained to Jake it couldn't possibly have been you. But mom, just look at this one of dad. Doesn't he look just like the friend from Franco's picture? Yeah, there's a resemblance. It's like they could be twins. Let's go! Who the hell are you?
So, uh, if you want to get back to Jason, you should probably get that exam going. -Right. -I'll go with you. No. No. I-I'm gonna have to change. We're in exam room 3. Thank you. Um, in the meantime, would you do me a favor, and would you mind explaining to my mother all of the side effects, and that I'm fine. She doesn't seem to think that I'm doing okay. I will do my best to ease her fears. Thank you!
[Telephones ringing in distance] So, uh, toxoplasmosis. -Mm-hmm. -Mm-hmm. Any lingering effects? -Nope. -Mm-hmm. And, uh, the -- with the treatment? -Nothing. -Hmm. But I'm guessing you already knew that. Why? You strike me as a woman that does her research. Do I also strike you as a woman who lets her daughter run roughshod over her? -You know what she's doing. -Yeah. Sam's trying to set us up. I'm terribly sorry. I'm very embarrassed. I will make sure that she stops that. Oh, don't. Don't. I can think of worse things than spending my time with a beautiful, intelligent woman. No! You can't do this! It's done. I already talked to my advisor and pulled the trigger -with the registrar.
Well, un-pull it. Why? Because now you actually have to face your feelings? My feeling is this is very impulsive. So what? Doesn't make it a mistake. Your parents already don't like me, and for good reason. Once they find out that you dropped out of school for me -- not just because of you. It honestly wasn't working out. And why waste the money on classes when I'm not benefiting from them? And as for my parents, they just want me to be happy. Yeah, and as far away from me as possible. They'll come around. They will, once they get to know you. And what if they don't? I'm an adult. I get to choose who I do or don't want to hang out with. This is what I want, parker. I thought you did, too. Was I wrong? Hey, you make some good points. Thanks. Wait. Hold on. This conversation was actually helpful to you? It was strange. Well, given circumstances. But it got me to thinking about things. Okay, from personal experience, the only thing worse than not getting what you want is living in limbo. Living in limbo's not living at all. Thanks. I know your dad looked like Franco's friend when he was a little kid, but it's just a coincidence. There's only one Jason Morgan. No one else like him. That's not true. I'm like him. Oh, that's true. You are just like him. Yeah, but just in the good ways. And what are the bad ways?
Too many to count.
Oh, Jason. His singing voice.
Hey, that's --
Ah, you have a good point. No. No, I can sing.
This old man, he played -- -I can't sing. You're right. -Okay, mister. We need to get you to your appointment with Dr. Maddox. How's that going, by the way? We talk about star wars. Dr. Maddox says greedo shot first, but I don't buy it. [Chuckles] I'll have to take your word for it. Ready? Hey, uh... thanks for bringing him by and the cookies -- -everything.
Yeah. Of course. Can we visit again soon? Absolutely. Tell you what, though. Next time, you won't be coming here, 'cause I'm going to get out of this place, and you can see me at home.
Cross my heart, kid. Oh, yeah. Come here. Mm. I love you. Love you, too.
Patient 6: No ID, no cash. It's locked. He's useless. No, except for his clothes. You should change. No, there's no time. You need to get out of here now. Okay. Let's go. It's clear. Well, what will you do? There's a ton of security between you and the front door. I'm not going out the front door. Well, I don't even know your name. Well, good luck... whoever you are. Thank you. Really. I owe you. You're welcome.
You're not wrong. My feelings are strong for you as they've ever been. Then what's stopping you? It's your education. It's a really big deal, especially to me. Okay. It's not like I'm dropping out of high school, or college, even. And I'm not saying that I won't re-apply to graduate school. I just -- the timing isn't right, not now. I just don't ever want you to regret anything. That's exactly why I'm doing this, parker. Life is short. And I know people say that a lot, but it's true. And if you ask me to choose between love and a business degree, I'm going to go for the love. Besides, how many miserable people do you know with MBAs? Plenty. See? I rest my case. You make a persuasive argument. Is it a winning one? You free for dinner tonight? Yes. Then it's a date.
[Elevator bell dings]
Hey! -Hey! -How'd the visit go? Did you know that if you're in a coma, and people come and talk to you, you can actually hear what they say? I did not. Get outta town. It was pretty amazing. How's your first day back? I'm just getting started.
Will we see you for dinner?
Yeah. That'd be great. Okay. We got to get to Dr. Maddox's. Jake, is that true what you just said, that your dad heard you? Yeah. He just wasn't strong enough to talk back.
Yeah. Okay. We got to go. See you later. See ya. If you and I are really connected by blood, Jason, then I need for you to wake up now. I need you to wake up and tell me who you are... so I can figure out who I am and why I've done all of the things that I've done.
[Cell phone rings]
Jason: You know, I've been awake for almost two days, and no visit from you. I'm so disappointed. Hello, Jason. Why don't you come over right now?
[Knock on door]
Come! To help you relax. Oh, no. I'll relax when I get out of here. Success cannot be rushed. To achieve the results you want, I have to follow a strict protocol. Whatever works, I suppose. When we're through, you'll be back to your old self.
[Cell phone beeping]
If you'll excuse me, it's time to transfer Patient 6. Hey. Um, look, I'm on my way to the airport right now. So if your contacts come through, please just call me. And thank you, Anna. Thank you. Taking a trip? Sorry, I just totally eavesdropped. No, no, no. It's okay. I was actually about to come see you. Really? Why? I'm going after your mom. Oh, my God. You located the clinic? No, no. Not exactly, but I have narrowed it down. Well, Griffin, you know these people really value their privacy. What if you fly all the way to Russia, and you still can't find the place? Well, it's better than waiting here doing nothing. Look, I've tried contacting her. I-I-I've tried waiting for her. I've tried willing her return. I'm done trying. I'm going. What can I do to help? You speak Russian? [Chuckles] I do not. Uh, just stay here and hold down the fort. Um, just -- maybe some prayers would help, too. You got it. Oh, hey, Griffin. If you find my mom, will you -- "when." When I find your mom. Tell her I love her, okay? Damn! Go tell the supervisor. Patient 6 is loose. Everyone on alert. Do not let him make it outside. I repeat, do not let him make it outside.
[Patient 6 breathing heavily]
