(This still needs extensive editing)It's taking too long. No -- no one wants an uncooked turkey, all right? I told you not to get such a big one! It's fine!
Michael: At least we're -- we're guaranteed days of leftovers, right? It's good for turkey soup, turkey sandwiches, turkey chili. [Chuckles] So you're staying 'til after the turkey's done? That's a nice surprise. You know, your room's ready. It's all clean. You can stay all night long. Carly, let me worry about the cooking, you worry about the guests. Hi! [Chuckles] Hi. Wow, you look great. [Chuckles] So do you. I haven't seen... this before. Oh, yeah, my mom bought it for me. She said my old one was wearing out and I needed to upgrade my look.
Wait, wait. Didn't she come? As soon as we got to the guardhouse -- oh, no. No, Max and Milo were supposed to leave the gates open. Tell me they weren't still out there. Hey, chill. It's nothing like that. She just remembered she left the pie in the kitchen. Oh! [Chuckles] Okay, good! I thought she figured out that Sonny's a mob boss -- alleged mob boss -- and banned you from seeing me. She hasn't said anything like that. Cool. It's just... ...kind of seems like you don't really want her to meet me -- us. It's not because of you. It's because of her. I mean, my mom -- she's great, she's the best. But she can be a little much, you know. Like this. [Both chuckle] Well, you look really good. So do you. I already -- I already said that. Happy Thanksgiving. Yeah, well, it is with you here. Hi! Welcome, welcome! It's good to see you. Happy Thanksgiving. Oh, thank you so much. Happy Thanksgiving. You look beautiful. Hey, um, are your mom and uncle gonna be along soon? They're not already here? Curtis mentioned stopping for extra cream. Oh, yes! They certainly love their cream! All right, all right. I had a little... accident with whipped cream last -- I can't be trusted with a whisk. [Scoffs] The cavalry is here! Point me at the kitchen! No, no. Oh, no, no, no! That's okay. You should just sit and relax and enjoy yourself. My mother has plenty of help today. Happy Thanksgiving. Who's hungry? Hey! Hey! Happy Thanksgiving! Hi!
Lulu: Thank God you're here! Help me with...something. Brought that microbrew Lopez is raving about. Well, here, give it to me. I'll put it in the fridge. No, no, no. I got it. It's cold already. I'll bring you one. Okay. Hey, Ned! Hey! Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you!
Olivia: You found it! Yes, at the only store that's still open! [Chuckles] Fresh rosemary. Come here. [Smooches] You're the best. Is Leo...? Well, he conked out early. He can have his turkey tomorrow. Okay, what's this about? 'Cause you obviously don't need my help. Quit stalling! Tell me. Are you pregnant or not? So, glad you could be here for Thanksgiving. You're not going to miss out on, uh, your pizza? [Chuckles] It will be a novel experience, but I'm actually looking forward to eating some turkey and all the fixings. Yeah, I hope someone gave a heads-up to Pisano's. They're not going to know what to do when Monica doesn't make the annual call. [Both laugh] We told you she was more than welcome to be here, obviously. Yes, she made other plans. By now, she's on a plane, traveling to new Mexico about to enjoy some r and r at a spa. Wow, Quartermaine house empty on Thanksgiving. Yeah, first time for everything. Is he here? No. Well, can I come in? You know, I-I don't think that's a good idea. Please, Sam, it's -- it's important. [Sighs] I need you to tell me what you want me to do.
On Thanksgiving, you can never have too many hands. How can we help? Actually, TJ, you can help. Can you look at my remote? I have a new cable box. And then if somebody wants to watch baseball, they can. Football. Yeah, whatever. All right, you guys, relax, enjoy yourself. I'll be right back. Oh! How about I get us some drinks? Aunt Stella? Um... uh, you better not be on that thing all night. [Chuckles] Okay, babe, I'm just looking for an update from one of my contacts. Okay, but it's Thanksgiving, you know. I-I don't think one of your contacts is gonna run into André before we break the wishbone. All right, you're right. You're right. I'm -- I'm just worried about being there for Jason. Oh, no, trust me. [Scoffs] We all want to get to the truth, but this André situation... it -- it can wait a few hours, all right? At least until we finish our Thanksgiving dinner. Plus, look, I need your head in the game right now. All right. May need some backup. You got it. [Chuckles] Let me tell you something about making a turkey. It's all in the Creole seasonings, and that's how you make an incredible bird. You know, it's like... what are you doing? I'm trying to talk to you. I'm trying to give you some wisdom.
Michael: Oh, sorry, sorry. No, I'll put it away. [Sighs] Is it business? No, it's, uh... it's Nelle. Hey! Hey, Oscar! Happy Thanksgiving! Oh, you, too, Mrs. Corinthos. Nice tie. [Chuckles] So, where's Avery? Uh, still sleeping. Okay, great. Mm-hmm. And where's your mom? Uh, she'll be here soon -- with pie. Oh, good! I'm looking forward to it. As much as you're looking forward to watching football with Sonny and Michael. Um, Oscar hates football, actually. Not really. I-I just don't -- don't know a whole lot about it. It's okay. I'm sure you and Sonny can find something else to bond over. You two can do battle over the wishbone. That's a great idea. Word to the wise -- Sonny really likes to win. Well, I [Chuckles] I didn't expect to see you here. I'm sorry. W-where is everyone? Uh, well, the staff has the -- the day off, and Olivia and Ned are having dinner at Dante's. And I was supposed to be at a spa in new Mexico, but the plane was grounded due to bad weather. So I'm just gonna have to experience harmonic convergence some other time. [Chuckles] Sorry about your trip. Oh. Happy to see you. I'm happy to see you, too. And it's a little quiet for Sam and the kids to be here. No, I-I'm going to see them later at Alexis'. You know, something tells me that you just didn't come over to wish me a happy Thanksgiving. I wish I did. I just need to make sure that we're still good. Well, [Chuckles] Why would you say that? Well, first Carly and Sonny, and now robin -- they're telling me everything I, uh, I remember, my entire life, is, uh, someone else's. Robin's here? Yeah, she's here. I, uh, I ran into her at Elizabeth's when I was there to see Jake. Well, then, I guess Anna has told her what's happened. She saw the other guy. One look at his face. Suddenly... I go from someone she loved and cared about -- had history with... now I'm a stranger. Uh, Diane's working to prove my identity, and there's a problem with my fingerprint records. So she issued subpoenas for all the old cases, but every time I was arrested, they took my fingerprints in those -- those cards -- should be in the files. Why? W-why are you telling me this? [Sighs] Because eventually, they're gonna prove that I'm Jason Morgan. Unless I tell them to stop. Why would you tell them to stop? Why wouldn't... why would you want to stay in limbo here? Because... because I don't -- I don't have anything to prove. Sam, I know the truth. And I can live my whole life and never use my name again... if that made things easier for you. Sorry, but none of this is easy. It is impossible! And you -- you're making it harder.
Ah, ah, ah! (Laughter) well, I bet I know what you're thankful for. [Sighs] Are you going to say something about "man Landers"? Please don't. I've heard it all already. Well, I doubt that. Have Mac and Felicia weighed in yet? See, now that's what I'm thankful for -- my in-laws are celebrating with Anna. Mm. That means you're just delaying the inevitable, my friend. Yeah, yeah. Hey, you, uh, notice something weird about Maxie lately? Lately? Remember, it's my anniversary. You cannot deny an Italian a request on her anniversary. It's in "the godfather". Okay, you're not Italian. You're Italian-adjacent. And I'm pretty sure that's not how that movie goes. Just tell me! I can't tell you anything before I tell my husband. Aha! "Aha" what? There's no "aha". If you have something to tell Nathan that you can't tell me yet, it must be that you're pregnant! Okay, if you want a mystery to solve, find out who outed Nathan and Amy to "the invader". Oh! Look! You're mom's here! Laura! Happy Thanksgiving!
Laura: Thank you, sweetie. You, too. Aww! Hi, honey. I got that heavy whipping cream.
Thank you, Alexis, for inviting us all to share Thanksgiving with you. Yeah. My pleasure. I'll try to keep the culinary mishaps to a minimum. [Laughter] Auntie, happy Thanksgiving! Oh, happy Thanksgiving, baby! You, too, Jordan. Happy Thanksgiving. You wouldn't have happened to bring your dressing? I...I still think it's the best I've ever had.
Alexis: How's it going? I am going to go check on the bird. It's probably ready for another basting. Oh, great. Here. Thanks. Dr. Bensch is so sweet and helpful. And since he is watching the bird, you can take a breather and chat for a minute. Of course, sweetie. So you must be gearing up for finals now, right? I know you put so much pressure on yourself, but you've had a good semester, so relax. Well, yeah. I mean, other than the fact that my English professor got fired and left town with my sister. Oh! Let's not do this, okay? Okay, I am not looking for a fight, really, but have you thought about reaching out to Kristina today? How is she? No, I'm not gonna do this, okay? If you want to know how Kristina is doing, then you can talk to her yourself. I have tried, and she won't talk to me. All right, let's just... not do this right now, okay? Let's just have a nice Thanksgiving. Okay, well, hey, if you don't want to talk about Kristina, then how about we talk about "Dr. Mcdashing"! So, uh, that was Nelle you were texting before? Yeah, she's just saying happy Thanksgiving. That's all. You two are still in touch, huh? Yeah, well, dad, I'm her landlord. Yeah. Even if I wasn't, it's not like port Charles is so big that I'm never gonna run into her. So it's best just to be nice. Yeah, well, it just seems you're so familiar, given how you ended it. Dad, I don't hate her or anything, I'm just -- oh, I -- it just didn't work.
Hey! Look who's here! Ohh! Oh, hey, Oscar. Michael. Happy Thanksgiving, Mr. Corinthos. Happy Thanksgiving to you. You want a beer? Sonny! I'm just joking. Okay, well, you're -- him and I -- we -- we kind of have a thing going, right? Right, well, your sense of humor may be lost on people who don't know you, like Oscar's mother, who will be here any minute. Okay, so I guess I should be more careful. Yes. [Laughs] Hey, do me a favor. Hmm? Uh, make sure the guards, uh, keep the gate open. And also make sure that they stay out of sight. You are not a stranger. I mean, your relationship with Sonny and Carly and Robin -- that's -- that's all real. I mean, the events are real, the feelings are real. But not the last 20 years. To them, I'm just some guy they've known for three. And Sonny and Carly and I -- we've always had each other's backs. We've always been there for each other, but -- well, what's changed? This other guy... has changed. They... they think he is their friend. He's Jason. So what do they need with me? And how long until my family feels the same way? You can't just come to me and offer to give away who you are.
You have to choose. Do you want to fight for your life or do you want to give it away? I want you and your kids to be okay. That's what I want. Y-you're married to him. He's losing his mind over this. You don't understand, do you? Just as much as you think you're Jason Morgan, he thinks he's Jason Morgan. He remembers everything -- meeting Sonny and Carly, he remembers meeting me. He remembers falling in love with me. All of it. And then suddenly, someone's telling him that it's all a lie -- that his life is a lie, and that it's yours. W-what do you expect him to do? I don't know. I don't know! That's why I'm here. Because I thought if I stepped back, he could use the name Jason Morgan, and you can just go on with your lives. What would happen to you?
I'm not keeping any secrets.
Well, then, how come you didn't tell me that you invited Dr. Bensch to dinner? I planned everything out so carefully. I figured you could squeeze one more in. I found out he was all by himself, so I invited him. That's it. Okay, fair enough. All I care about is that his name is not Julian Jerome. [Sighs]
Jordan: So how's the real-estate market treating you, David?
Stella: Oh, you're looking to relocate? Well, I'm looking to put down roots, get out of my apartment into something more permanent. You should look at queen's point. Mm. It's beautiful over there. Mm. I was thinking Charles street. It's, uh, vibrant, plenty of property, and lots of value. Isn't that where that notorious woman set up her herb shop? Uh, that's the neighborhood over. Wait. What woman? Cocktail weenie? TJ, you remember -- it was such a big story. You know that crazy lady who tried to blow up the hospital? Oh, yes, Liv Jerome. Yes! Yes. Her attorney was on TV earlier reading her statement. I'm sorry, Liv Jerome made a statement? Mm, more like a confession. She admitted to forcing her brother to commit crimes for her. What are you gonna do? Climb on your motorcycle and...ride away? I mean, do you think for one second that Sonny and Carly would let you go? If I explained why I had to leave... wrong. I mean... maybe before, but... they spent five years missing you. Five years wanting to hear your voice again. Five years believing that they would never see you. So now that they have you back, I just -- I don't think you should leave. [Sighs] I mean, you saw the way he reacted to the results of the DNA test and outside of Elizabeth's. It's -- it's not good, and it's -- it's only gonna get worse. Then let it get worse. The only way to move forward is to know the truth. You asked me what I want? I want the truth. I want to know who is... Andréw Moore and who is.... Jason Morgan. All right, I'll tell Diane to keep working on it. Okay. The sooner, the better. No chance she's working tonight, huh? Uh, she and, uh, max are having Milo and epiphany over for Thanksgiving dinner. [Chuckles] I don't know what's crazier, that Diane's cooking or Sonny gave max and Milo the night off. [Chuckles] Right, actually, Max is cooking, and -- and they got the night off because, uh, Josslyn's boyfriend and his mother's coming over for dinner to Sonny's house, and Carly thought the guards might make her a little uncomfortable. [Chuckles] She's funny. She thinks she can hide the guards, she hides the fact that Sonny's a mobster. Yeah, you know, not hide it, but just not advertise it. [Chuckles] Tell her, "good luck with that". Um, tell everyone I said happy Thanksgiving. I will. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too. I know you. You're mommy's friend... from the hospital. You are not going to lose your family. Never thought I'd lose Sonny and Carly, either. Look, when it comes right down to it, Carly and Sonny aren't your family.
I am. Yeah, you've had a relationship with them. But what it boils down to is family doesn't cut and run, they stay. And that's what I'm doing. What if we find out I'm not your family? Doesn't make any difference. You and I have formed a relationship in the last two years. I know we have. Which sometimes makes me think that maybe I'm not really me. But regardless, I'm grateful to have you as my mother. And I am grateful for you -- my son. Okay, [Clears throat] I have to go. Okay. Hey, Mom, um... happy Thanksgiving. [Sighs] So have you uncovered any more clues? Do you think the sailor from San Diego could be your dad? Oscar O'Brien? No. I checked him out online, and it turns out he's gay. Has never been interested in women. [Sighs] Back to the drawing board. No, no, that's okay. We're going to find your dad. I have faith.
Sonny: Carly, heads up. Just got a call from Nico. Oscar's mother is on her way up.
Carly: Oh! She's here! Okay. This is it. Our lives will never be the same.
I am now.
Kim: Hi. Hi. You must be Kim.
And you must be Carly.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Um, Liv Jerome made a statement? Who would televise that? Probably the same people that greenlit "mob princess". I'm sorry. Did I say something wrong? Liv Jerome is the sister of Alexis' ex-husband. Your ex is the brother that woman was trying to exonerate?
Curtis: Babe, did you know anything about this statement? Actually, uh, the DA informed me this -- this evening that Liv is claiming sole responsibility for everything that happened last winter. But Julian -- I know. According to the statement, Julian's blameless, saying that Liv coerced him into helping her. And what does this mean for Julian? Well, baby, Julian committed crimes. You know, plenty of them, and...hopefully, his appeal will be denied. But he -- he could be released?
Oh, that's the turkey! Time to eat. Mom... hey, Jason! Come on in. Hope you're hungry. Happy Thanksgiving. Where's Sam? We're going to my grandma's house for Thanksgiving. Are you coming, too? You know what, I wish I -- I wish could. Uh, but I'm -- I'm having Thanksgiving with some friends. Do your friends have a dog? [Chuckles] No, no. Neither does my grandma Alexis. My dog lives in my other grandma's house. I wish we were going there for Thanksgiving. Hey, I already told you I would take you tomorrow to play with Annabelle the second. Good, 'cause we need to practice. I know. I'm teaching her how to do tricks. Wow, that's really cool. I hope I get to see them someday. Well, we have to get ready, okay? Okay. Yeah, right. Uh, Happy Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving!
I like your friend. He's nice. Yeah. Come here. He's someone special.
Kim: Josslyn, it's so good to finally meet you. Yeah, well, it's -- it's really good to meet you, too. Here you go. [Chuckles] Oh, thank you. Yeah. I'm glad we're finally getting a chance to talk. You raised a good kid. Aww, well, thank you again. It was really kind of you to invite us for Thanksgiving. I hope that we didn't cause you too much extra work. Uh, it gave my dad the chance to get the biggest turkey humanly possible. [Laughter] He's happy. We are used to having a house full. This year, it's just us and our friend Jason, who should be here any minute. Well, don't forget about Avery. That's right. That's, uh, my daughter. Oh. Yeah, um, Oscar and I should probably go check on her. Yeah, good idea.
Carly: Huh. Well, I'm impressed. I mean, I thought they'd disappear before you even took your coat off. [Both laugh] Well, it's always a little awkward when new people get together, isn't it? Well, you know what, why don't you have a seat? Make yourself at home. Thank you. And anything you need. [Chuckles] It is very nice. Obviously, organized crime has been very good to you. So I hear you're back at ELQ. Yes, just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in. [Laughs] They keep you busy? Yeah. One project I'm very excited about is the redevelopment of the Charles street area. Really? Yeah. Hmm. You know that area quite well, don't you? Didn't you and Mary Mae ward do quite a lot of work down there? Yes, we did, fighting ELQ and their plans to build a toxic-waste incinerator. True, but I assure you that Michael has divested ELQ of anything even remotely environmentally unfriendly. This project is totally on the up-and-up.
Lulu: Gather around, everybody!
Dante: Hey! The food is ready. Yay! Yes, but first -- first we give thanks. I am thankful that our family is stronger than ever, now that Charlotte's a part of it. Hear, hear. Oh, and happy anniversary. I'm grateful that our two loving, supportive families have merged into one. Yes, and I am grateful for the opportunity to get to know Monica better. Olivia. I am, and -- and also to -- to have the opportunity to improve my communication skills. [Laughter] Well, I am so thankful for having found this beautiful woman. And for convincing her to spend her life with me. [Laughs] And I'm very grateful for all the fun that we're going to have while planning our wedding. Fun? Yes, fun. Oh, we like fun. Yes, we do. [Laughter] I am grateful for my wife's boundless patience. [Scoffs] Who knew he would say that? Um, I'm thankful for my new job, uh, my wonderful husband, a beautiful daughter, and... good things to come. Thanks for the turkey! [Laughter]
Olivia: Okay, let's eat!
Monica, why didn't you tell me? I had to find out from the pilot that your flight was canceled. Oh, well, it's no big deal, Ned. I didn't want to bother you. Come over. We have plenty of food. There's a plate with your name on it. I am just fine right here with a turkey burger. Monica. Ned, come on. Just enjoy the holiday, okay? I'm -- I'm a coffee importer, Dr. Nero. I could talk about my business all day long...
[Cell phone rings]
...But I-I don't want to bore you. But you can ask me anything you want. Uh, excuse me. I have to take this. What's up, Ned? I have done my best to honor my son's privacy. Mm-hmm. I haven't asked him too many questions or pressed him for information about Josslyn or her parents. But I have done my due diligence. I know who you are. A lot of things have been said about me in the press. It's not true, I mean -- and a fair number of them are very good. Stone Cates memorial wing is impressive. But charitable donations only do so much. Look, your name is attached with a long list of criminal allegations, so you must understand why I have my concerns about my son's involvement with your daughter. Your concerns are new to me. They are. For weeks, I've been trying to get together and talk with you, and Oscar has come up with one excuse after another.
Kim: Yeah. My -- my practice is very demanding. One of the pitfalls of being a single parent is that Oscar's had to be more independent than I would have liked. But... you know, sometimes, it can lead to bad decisions. Oscar and Josslyn have been together for months. Th-they're great together, and -- and -- and now you're going to object? Listen, I-I don't know you. It's just what I've heard. So I just wanted to make sure that we understand each other. I'm not gonna come between Oscar and Josslyn. I quite honestly don't think the relationship will last long enough to warrant the headache. Really?! So now you think they're headed for a breakup? Look, Josslyn is Oscar's first girlfriend. And I believe that Oscar is her first boyfriend? [Scoffs] Yeah? I mean, it seems to reason that pretty soon, they'll get bored and move on. That and the fact that you've kept Josslyn out of the public eye throughout your...difficulties is why I'm willing to just let this play out -- without any interference from me. And hopefully with minimal friction among all three of us. Does it work for you? [Scoffs] Well, I mean, look, I can't fault your logic, but these kids are -- they're young, they're new to all this. I wouldn't bet against them just yet.
Sam: Scout's sound asleep. Oh, I call first dibs when she wakes up! Oh, man. I'm sure Curtis would love a turn. He's a sucker for babies. Scout, that's my girl. Although, she did throw up on my favorite sweater. Oh. Maybe you deserved it. [Laughing] Probably did. Come on, you guys! Eat before it gets cold! No argument here. [Chuckles] Thank you. Oh, that looks good. I'm famished. How about you? Yeah. Famished. Happy Thanksgiving, Molly!
Molly: Happy Thanksgiving, honey! What happened? I-I thought you'd beat me here, but, uh, did the kids give you trouble? We have mashed potatoes, sweet-potato casserole. We've got lasagna. String beans, stuffing with and without sausage. And we've got Nonna Theresa's Cioppino. [Chatter] Smells good! That smells good!
[Dramatic music plays]
So, uh, you know, I thought I'd beat you here.
Alexis: Okay, guys.
Hey! Honey, I'm glad you made it. All right, guys, come on, dinner's served. Oh!
Jason: You okay?
Dr. Bensch: Well...
Nathan, I'm okay, really. No, babe, I think -- uh, I think you need to go see a doctor tomorrow. I'm not sick. Okay, well, then why -- I've been trying to tell you this for days. [Sighs] I'm pregnant. You're -- you're what?
No, you're not. [Chuckling] Yes, I am. Like -- like you're having a baby, pregnant? Well, you are, too. Wait, we're having a baby?! [Chuckles] We're having a baby!? No, no, rocking! Sorry, all right. [Whispers] We're having a baby?
There! Good as new. I'm really sorry that you stayed behind. What? What was I gonna do, leave you here to clean up all by yourself? Well, I'm the one who dropped the turkey. Ah, mess wasn't too bad. It was awful! It was a disaster -- like my life. [Laughs] I'm the turkey. Oh, if you are a disaster, you are a glorious, intriguing, attractive one. Wow. Mm-hmm. Really? After everything you've seen and...heard? You still don't want to run for your bachelor pad? [Laughs] No, not in the slightest. Now, do you happen to have a stain stick? 'Cause I've seemed to -- Josslyn and Oscar are probably not going to spend the rest of their lives together, but they really have a really special connection. You might know that if you spent some time with him. All right, I'm -- I'm going to go check on the turkey. Excuse me. I have handled this very badly. I am so sorry to immediately bust out with all that. It's all right. You know, you want to be on the same page. I respect that. I'm not one to let things go unsaid, either. Okay, well, that's two things we have in common -- good kids -- and no patience for the passive-aggressive. I don't have time to beat around the bush. My life is so busy as it is. I bet. [Sighs] It must be tough being a single mom. Was Oscar's father ever in the picture?
Mom... um, Avery's still out.
Carly: Oh, okay. Well, good. [Laughs] All right, 15 minutes to go, and we're ready. We have to wait for Jason.
Well, there he is. Great. The situation with Oscar's dad is complicated. I understand complicated. [Chuckles] So, uh... this is Oscar, and this is his mother, Kim. Drew? Oh, that's right. First we sing, then we eat. [Inhales sharply]
We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing
All: He chases and hastens his will to make known the wicked oppressing now cease from distressing sing praises to his name he forgets not his own
