Nina: [Rumbling] I'm torn. I like that arrangement.

Valentin: Oh, yeah. Simple, elegant, very tasteful.

Nina: Jay would like it. He's a jeans-and-t-shirt kind of guy, you know. He didn't like anything bold or gaudy. My aunt Liesl --

Anna: Hi, sorry, I don't mean --

Nina: Are you kidding me?! Seriously!

Anna: The housekeeper let me in.

Nina: We're planning my brother's funeral right now!

Valentin: This is not a good time.

Nina: Please, if you have any business with my husband, please do it later.

Anna: I just came to see Liesl. I know she's --

Nina: She's resting! She's resting. Is there something you need to tell her? I will give her a message.

Dr. Obrecht: I'd rather hear it in person. What more could you possibly want from us, Anna?

Sam: This came for you.

Drew: Did you give me flowers?

Sam: I wonder who the card is from.

Drew: Hmm.

Sam: [Chuckles]

Drew: What's this?

Sam: I don't know. What is it? Wow. Holy...cow, that looks like two tickets to Thailand to me.

Drew: Two tickets to Thailand?

Sam: Yes.

Drew: We got tickets to Thailand. What business do we possibly have in Thailand?

Sam: None whatsoever. It's a do-over for the honeymoon we didn't get to have.

Peter: Hey, you. The office said I might find you here.

Lulu: Yeah, I tend to think better when I'm... not there.

Peter: Well, why wouldn't you? After all, diners are the natural habitat of all writers.

Lulu: [Chuckles] So, you found me.

Peter: Just checking in. I haven't talked to you since Detective West died. I wanted to see how you were doing.

Lulu: Well, the happy ending that I was writing... turned out to be Nathan's obituary.

Mike: Whew. Hey. Sleep all right? I see you helped yourself to my paper.

Sonny: I also set up the espresso maker that I sent to you two Christmases ago.

Mike: [Chuckling] Oh, yeah. I appreciate it, but I'm -- I'm just not a fancy-coffee kind of guy, you know.

Sonny: Yeah. By my watch, it's, uh, this afternoon. Where you been all morning?

Mike: Why? You got something on your mind?

Sonny: You could say that.

[Cup clinks]

[Bag rustles]

Sonny: Want to explain this?

Mike: Uh... I don't understand. What is this?

Sonny: You tell me.

Mike: What?

Sonny: Where were you this morning?

Mike: I went out for a walk. I go out for a walk every morning. Ask Rita.

Sonny: For hours of -- I-in February?

Mike: What? It's a -- it's a crime to -- to like fresh air? What do you want from me? I go out for a walk. I -- I -- I visit my buddies. We go have coffee, breakfast sometimes at the diner, and then I come home. It's my routine.

Sonny: And the money, Mike?

Mike: [Scoffs] [Sighs] If you don't know anything about that money, then that makes two of us. I told you, Sonny. I have a side job as a bag man. I'm not an idiot. I know what happens to guys who don't deliver.

Sonny: What was the $10,000 doing in your cigar box, Mike?

Mike: [Scoffs] I -- I don't know, but I did not put it there!

Julian: Mr. Harvey.

Jim Harvey: I thought I'd stop by and see if you, uh, had a change of heart. My offer is still on the table.

Julian: Ah, a very generous offer it was, I have to tell you, but... I'm still in love with the place, therefore Charlie's is still not for sale.

Jim Harvey: Ah, well. Can't blame a guy for trying, right? Look, you know, you -- you change your mind, you know where to find me.

Julian: At your regular table. Hell, if I sold you the place, you might starve.

Jim Harvey: [Laughs]

Curtis: Man, from what side-eye I could pick up, dude wasn't even smiling when he walked away. He was baring his teeth.

Julian: Mm, good. That will make them easier to knock out of his head. I'm starting my whole life over again here.

Curtis: So you're not just holding out? I mean, you're really not going to sell.

Julian: Charlie's is staying right where it is, smack-dab in the middle of Harvey's plans.

Drew: Why Thailand?

Sam: Well, we didn't get to finish our honeymoon.

Drew: No.

Sam: And I've never been there. And as far as I know, you've never been there.

Drew: That's true. Everything old is very much new.

Sam: And guess what?

Drew: Hmm?

Sam: It would be just the two of us. Kids will be at Monica's...

Drew: [Laughs]

Sam: ...And we would get to explore and travel... and eat foods that we're afraid to eat.

Drew: Yeah?

Sam: And have our first real adventure as Drew and Sam Cain.

Drew: My god, look at you.

Sam: [Chuckles]

Drew: It's very tempting.

Sam: You know what the best part is?

Drew: Oh, no. What's the best part?

Sam: I'm going to tell you the best part. We will be making memories of our own. Then we can have an adventure after that and then another one after that and then another one after that.

Drew: You are ambitious. You know what I just realized, though?

Sam: That your wife is totally amazing and she's right about everything?

Drew: No, I've known that for a very long time.

Sam: [Laughs] But what?

Drew: That the word "honeymoon" has a really nice ring to it.

Sam: Which part of it? "Honey"? "Moon"?

Alexis: Don't the two of you have some work to do?

Peter: I am so sorry, Lulu. I can only imagine how devastated you are.

Lulu: My devastation doesn't matter. Maxie lost her husband. Dante lost his partner. You know, when you're a cop, your partner is, like, a part of you. So they both have this huge piece missing now and I can't help but think I set that into motion.

Peter: This probably won't help, but...

Lulu: I got nothing to lose.

Peter: I was thinking about... Dante and Maxie and everyone that ever cared about Nathan. And how they might take some small comfort in knowing that someone who loved him wrote his obituary.

Lulu: I think that would be a very small comfort. Maxie is so devastated. She can't see anyone or even talk to anyone.

Peter: How's the baby? The stress, the pregnancy, it's got to be...

Lulu: Oh, well, the baby's fine. Just the worst part is that little boy or little girl will never know what a great dad they could have had.

Ned: Lulu, Peter.

Lulu: Hi, Ned.

Ned: Hey, I've really enjoyed reading your byline in the paper lately. And now that the election is in full swing, I was wondering if you'd like to do a one-on-one interview with one of the candidates. Peter, can you make that happen? Should I have my office reach out to you?

Peter: Have them contact the paper directly. If you'd like to request Lulu, you can do that, but you should know that all of our editors are autonomous, completely.

Ned: Oh, okay. Good. Look forward to it.

Lulu: Well, that happened.

Peter: People are recognizing you for your talent. Yes, it did. That's a good thing.

Lulu: I can't muster up any enthusiasm when my best friend's husband is dead.

Anna: Faison was hiding out here on Spoon Island and, um, the WSB would like to search the grounds and the house, with your permission, of course.

Nina: Of course.

Anna: To see if Faison left anything behind.

Valentin: Well, you can knock yourself out, but I did a thorough sweep of the island before... Charlotte got home, and there's no trace of Faison.

Anna: Good. Okay. Great.

Valentin: So, you know, if there's nothing else...

Anna: There is, actually, um...

Dr. Obrecht: isn't there always?

Anna: While I was at the morgue, they gave me Faison's personal effects, and, um... I thought maybe you would want them.

Sonny: I take time out of my life, and, you know, that's not easy --

Mike: Okay, no one asked you to.

Sonny: And I come here because I hear that my father's in trouble.

Mike: Well, maybe you shouldn't believe everything you hear!

Sonny: And I get here and I find out you're a bag man and you -- 10 grand are missing, and I find it in the -- in the cigar box! So I don't know what you're doing, what game you're playing, but I'm done! You don't want my help!

Mike: No, I don't!

Sonny: Well, you know, I can't force you to take it, but you know what? I'll reimburse Caruso. Keep the money!

Mike: Now, maybe I will!

Sonny: Okay, good, fine. Good luck, Mike.

Mike: I don't want your help. I don't need your help!

Sonny: I don't want your help, either! I'm not going to help you anymore!

Rita: What is going on in here?

Mike: You stay out -- no, no, stay out of this!

Rita: You know, Mike is too proud to ask you. He is too proud and he's too stupid. But me and Mike -- we're in trouble. We need you, Sonny. We need your help.

Drew: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: Mom. Molly told me that things over at the headquarters are a little intense right now.

Alexis: Yeah, well, that's why I'm here. Did either of you happen to catch the attack ad Ned's campaign is running?

Sam: No.

Drew: I did.

You did? Why didn't you say anything to me?

Drew: Why should I ruin your morning?

Sam: Ruin? How bad was it?

Drew: [Sighs] In brevity, the ad basically said that Alexis couldn't be trusted to make good decisions for the people of Port Charles.

Alexis: I have made some bad decisions.

Sam: Julian, yes. That's -- that's one, obviously. He ruins everything he touches. But Ned, uh -- kind of surprises me.

Alexis: Well, the consensus is Ned didn't know that the ad was being run, but he certainly didn't do anything to take it down.

Sam: All right, just run a counter-attack ad. A-at least you had enough sense to leave Ned at the altar. You did marry Julian.

Alexis: I'm not sure that that would play in my favor, leaving Ned at the altar, because he is not an alleged mobst-- a-anyway, I hate to ask you this, but I need your endorsement. Not yours, but Aurora Media because I think if you all say something, then it would point out some of the good that I've done.

Drew: We'd really like to help you, but, um...

Alexis: "But, um", what?

Drew: Don't get me wrong. I think you'd make a terrific mayor, but if Aurora Media were to endorse you at this point... it would probably tank your entire campaign.

Lulu: Oh, you have a knack for catching me at... really vulnerable moments. This needs to stop.

Peter: Lulu, given everything that's been going on, how can you not be emotional? And the fact that you can still cry -- trust me, most journalists can't. It's part of what gives your work insight.

Lulu: Very kind.

Peter: No, I'm not. I'm just honest.

Lulu: Yeah, it's so funny. You've been such a great mentor to me this whole time.

Peter: It's been my pleasure.

Lulu: How is it possible that I still don't know a thing about you?

Dr. Obrecht: Get that away from me.

Anna: Well --

Dr. Obrecht: I want nothing to do with his things.

Anna: I don't know, um -- personal effects, they normally end up with a family member. I thought maybe you or Britt or someone else...

Valentin: Well, you have a personal history with Faison. Why don't you take his personal effects and destroy them?

Anna: Ah, yes. I could do that, but not right now. Um, Liesl, you said Faison had a son. What about him?

Dr. Obrecht: Cesar killed his son -- my son. The one pure part of both of us, he killed him.

Anna: No, I know. I know. I -- I -- I was referring to Henrik. Do you know where he is? Could you help me find Faison's other son?

Sonny: You know what, Rita? I'd love to help you out, but I can't do that if I don't know what's going on.

Rita: We will tell you whatever you want to know, won't we, Mike?

Mike: Babe --

Sonny: first, all I want to know is how the 10 grand ended up in Mike's cigar box.

Rita: I don't know. You have got to believe me, Sonny. If I knew how it got there, I would tell you. We would, wouldn't we, Mike?

Mike: Rita, I do not need you to defend me to my son. I told you the truth, Sonny, and if my word isn't good enough for you, then -- then you need to get out of my house.

Sonny: You -- you think I don't want to believe you?

Mike: Wanting it is not good enough.

Sonny: [Sighs]

Mike: You know, I'm all sweaty from my walk, and I... I need to take a shower 'cause something stinks in here.

Rita: Do you see that? I know that you have not seen him in a long time, but he is not himself.

Sonny: No, he's not.

Rita: [Sighs] I told him he should not take that job, that we would find some way to get by. You know, could he get a job like a normal person? But then again, who can blame him? A man his age with his life, what's he going to do? Is he going to stock shelves with, you know, the high-school kids? What -- what are you doing?

[Water running]

Sonny: It's all here.

Rita: Does that mean something?

Sonny: Well, it means that he's telling the truth, at least about the gambling, because if he fell off the wagon, it would -- it would be short.

Rita: Sonny, I know that you have not seen him in a long time. You got to know how proud he is, right?

Sonny: He's -- he's got a lot of making up to do in his life. He's -- he's -- he's trying.

Rita: And has he succeeded?

Sonny: For -- for the most part.

Rita: Well, can you imagine how this must feel for him? You questioning him like this? He needs his own to believe in him, and he would rather die than admit that, but he does. You understand that?

Sonny: Yeah, more than you know.

Rita: Good, so if you want to help figure this out, and I hope that you do, can you go easy on your father?

Sam: Now that you mention it, I'm afraid he's right. Mom, an editorial campaign headed by your daughter with Julian -- it's probably not the smartest...

Drew: It's a problem. That's for sure. But, uh, an endorsement from the two of us, that's not what you need.

Alexis: Really?

Drew: Yeah.

Alexis: Oh, okay. What do I need? 'Cause I'm really open to suggestions.

Drew: Personally, what I think you need is an endorsement from the Port Charles Press.

Sam: Yeah, besides, Drew and I -- we made an agreement with our editorial staffs not to dictate content. I am so sorry.

Alexis: No, no, no, it's fine. It's fine, really. It's fine.

Drew: I'm sorry.

Sam: You know what, I-I can't run an ad for you, but I can take you out to a really awesome mother-daughter lunch.

Alexis: That's a nice consolation prize.

Sam: It is?

Alexis: Okay. Yeah.

Sam: Okay. We can talk all about the campaign and we can strategize how we're going to blow ned's campaign out of the water.

Alexis: All right.

Drew: Have fun.

Alexis: Bye-bye.

Peter: My life story? Well, it's just not that interesting, really. My family -- we weren't that close. We weren't close at all. My mother -- she abandoned me when I was an infant. My father shipped me off to boarding schools when I was old enough so he wouldn't have to bother with me.

Lulu: I'm so sorry.

Peter: Uh, me, too. I was just a kid. What can you do?

Lulu: No brothers or sisters?

Peter: I had a brother... uh, but he died before we had a chance to get to know each other.

Lulu: I'm so sorry that your childhood was unhappy. You deserved better than that.

Peter: Well, that's the nicest thing anyone's said to me in a while. But don't feel too bad.

Lulu: Why not? Your life was like a Dickens novel.

Peter: Well, I'll tell you why not. Because I practice what I preach, and I wrote myself a better ending. I didn't become who I am because of my family. I decided who I wanted to be... in spite of them.

Dr. Obrecht: Henrik is irrelevant. Nathan was the only one who mattered. My bright, beautiful boy.

Anna: Yeah, he was a great man. [Voice breaking] I adored him. I'm -- he was very intelligent and had great integrity and spirit. Your loss must be profound. But if there's anything you can tell me about Nathan's brother --

Nina: uh, Jay didn't have a brother!

Anna: Yes, he did. He did. His name was Henrik, and apparently, he was integral in what happened to Jason and Drew. So he could be out there somewhere following in Faison's footsteps.

Nina: I-if Faison has another son, where has he been and where is he now?

Anna: That's what I'm trying to find out.

Sonny: No, you're right. I-I should go easier on Mike, but because of our history, that's not always my first impulse.

Rita: I'm sure. He's told me some about how he abandoned you and your mother. That second husband -- not a nice guy.

Sonny: That's water under the bridge. Mike and I -- we already came to terms with that a long time ago.

Rita: Well, maybe you did, but that doesn't mean he doesn't think about it every day.

Sonny: All right, so let's say Mike's telling the truth and you guys don't know how that money was missing. What -- what's going on?

Rita: I wish I knew. Mike is just -- he's been so distracted lately, like something heavy is on his mind, something's worrying him.

Sonny: Did he tell you what it is?

Rita: No, I was hoping that he would tell you.

Sonny: Well, thanks for the vote of confidence, but it's -- as you probably noticed, we're not really the -- the sharing kind of guys.

Rita: All I know is that Mike's face lights up every time that he talks about you and your kids.

Sonny: Well, I believe my kids, but --

Rita: He's so proud of you, and this cranky-bastard act that he's put on...

Sonny: Is it an act? Because it's pretty convincing.

Rita: [Sighs]

Sonny: [Laughs]

Rita: [Chuckles] He wanted to be somebody that you could be proud of. And yeah, I know, cutting and running on you and your mom, not the best way to go about doing that, but... [Sighs] He loves you, Sonny... in his own absolutely half-assed way, and the last thing he wants is to need you, but right now...[Sighs]

Mike: You're still here.

Sonny: You see me standing here, don't you?

Mike: Does this mean you believe me?

Ned: Nice media company you have here. [Chuckles]

Drew: Well, we haven't run it to the ground yet, so that's something. Can I get you anything?

Ned: Uh, no, no thanks. Well, given the company's previous history and the rough start at the relaunch, I'd say you're way ahead of the game.

Drew: Hmm, well, you're family. You have to say nice things.

Ned: Well, I think you know our family a little bit better than that.

Drew: Yeah, I think I might. [Clears throat]

Ned: And speaking of family...

Drew: Mnh-mnh, here we go.

Ned: No, no, no, no. Ours, uh, was denied the opportunity to have your back while you were growing up, Drew. And I want you to know that we would have had your back, just like we had Jason's.

Drew: Well, thank you. That -- that's comforting to know.

Ned: You have our loyalty. This family is, um, standing beside you, Drew. All we ask is that you stand beside us, as well.

Julian: Hey, you two. Wow, welcome. Uh, please, grab a seat anywhere you like. I'll send someone right over, okay?

Alexis: Okay. It's not that bad.

Sam: The place is actually kind of cool.

Alexis: You looking for health-code violations?

Sam: No, I-I was just telling you that I-I thought the place was cool.

Alexis: Good. I'm glad you like it.

Sam: Not that I'll be coming here often, and neither should you.

Alexis: Campaign headquarters are right across the street. It's the middle of the neighborhood. It's a little hard to avoid.

Sam: You can avoid it, Mom. This guy lied to you, he manipulated you, and he nearly destroyed your life.

Alexis: I know, and you have -- no worries, there's no risk of Julian and me getting back together because apparently, he has a girlfriend.

Lulu: Did you ever try and find your mother?

Peter: When I was a kid, I had this fantasy that my mom would come back one day and -- you know the drill. But my father assured me that that was never going to happen.

Lulu: So he kept you from her?

Peter: No, uh, she had me given to him through an intermediary, so even he didn't know which of his many lovers was my mother.

Lulu: I'm sorry, Peter, how did you say that your life wasn't interesting?

Peter: Well, maybe for someone who didn't live it, but trust me, I was there. It ran the gamut from boring to unpleasant.

Lulu: Is that why your father sent you away? Because he didn't know who your mother was?

Peter: The best way to describe my father was self-absorbed and unfeeling. But thankfully, business always kept him away, so I didn't have to see him very often.

Lulu: Sounds like that was for the better.

Peter: He was a horrible person.

Lulu: He's no longer with us?

Peter: No. [Chuckles] Uh, he's been dead awhile. I'm embarrassed to say I spent most of my childhood seeking his approval. But there's only so much dismissing and ignoring you can take before one day, you wake up and say, "hey, I don't need your approval, and you certainly don't have mine." That's when I was able to break free. [Chuckles]

Anna: If you have any idea where Faison's son could be...

Dr. Obrecht: For God's sake, how would I know? I saw him a couple of times when he was a boy. He's long since grown.

Anna: Okay, well, if you remember anything, 'cause his other son is out there, and he could be continuing Faison's work. And if he is, then he needs to be stopped.

Nina: All right, Anna, please stop him next week, tomorrow. Not today. Not now.

Anna: Okay.

Sonny: Yeah, I believe you.

Mike: You do?

Sonny: Yeah, did I just say I believe you? Okay, here's what we're going to do now. The money, however it got here -- forget all that. We're not going to worry about that now.

Rita: [Chuckles]

Mike: Easy -- easy thing for you to say.

Sonny: All right, Caruso's squared. I paid him off. You keep that money.

Rita: See? I told you that your son could help us.

Sonny: But it's going to take a little while for things to calm down, so I'm just suggesting you guys take a little vacation.

Mike: You mean like Aruba?

[Both laugh]

Sonny: Well, I was thinking more like you come and meet Avery, who's my daughter.

Rita: Oh, I know. Mike showed me a picture of her. She's an angel.

Mike: Yeah. I -- I don't know.

Sonny: And also, you haven't met your great-grandson, Rocco. And Dante and Lulu would love to see you.

Mike: Yeah, I'm -- I'm -- I'm way too young to be a great-grandfather.

Rita: No, you're not.

Sonny: Okay, Mike, you screwed up. The only way you're going to be able to make up for this is to come on, come on to where I'm at. Carly would love to see you again.

Mike: [Sighs] Um... like, what about Rita?

Mike: Did -- I said -- didn't i just -- did I say both -- the invitation's for both of you.

Rita: Look, I would love to, but I -- I've got to work right now. So, Mike, go. Go meet your grandkids!

Mike: I'm not going anywhere.

[Rita sighs]

Alexis: Why don't I just come out and say every horrible thing I've ever done? I mean, what's Ned going to say then? He'll have nothing to talk about.

Jim Harvey: Miss Davis, I don't know if you remember me. Uh, Jim Harvey?

Alexis: How can I forget you, the way you waltzed in here and accused Laura Spencer of exploiting Mary Mae Ward's memory?

Jim Harvey: Which I deeply regret.

Alexis: I'm sure.

Jim Harvey: Well, now that you're the candidate -- uh, congratulations, by the way.

Alexis: Oh, thank you.

Jim Harvey: Uh, can we let bygones be bygones?

Alexis: I can try. I mean, I can always use another vote, right, and you apparently need something from me, so please, why don't you have a seat and join us?

Jim Harvey: Oh, okay.

Sam: Okay.

Jim Harvey: I can only stay a minute. Uh, I've -- I'm meeting someone.

Alexis: All right, well, we'll keep you company until... then, Mr. Harvey.

Jim Harvey: Uh, Jim, please.

Alexis: Jim. Jim, this is my daughter, Samantha... Cain.

Jim Harvey: Hello, Samantha.

Sam: Nice to meet you, Jim.

Jim: Nice to meet you, too.

Alexis: Jim here is with Niagara Equity. He's the face behind the Charles Street development project.

Jim Harvey: Hmm.

Sam: Oh.

Jim Harvey: Yeah, and I -- I would love to discuss the details of the project with you. I mean, after all, I've done the same for, uh, for your opponent, Ned Quartermaine. So it would only be fair.

Julian: Back already, huh? What did you find out?

Curtis: Well, my aunt Stella's mugger, uh, Roger Calvin?

Julian: Uh-huh?

Curtis: Dude is gone, man. He just... up and disappeared.

Julian: He jump bail or what?

Curtis: Well, that's the thing. No charges were filed, man. See, because my auntie fought back when he accosted her, he was the only one that got injured, so after Jordan persuaded him not to press charges against her...

Julian: Yeah, Stella couldn't press charges against him without getting herself into trouble.

Curtis: And now he just skipped town, and I cannot figure out what for. I mean, he was just a low-level street punk trying to get a cash grab.

Julian: Unless he wasn't. Look, you want my professional opinion?

Curtis: Yeah, man. Hit me.

Julian: Look, if this, uh, mugger was acting on someone's orders, maybe that someone helped him skip town.

Drew: Are "we" the Quartermaines asking me to stand beside them or is it "you," Ned, asking me to stand beside you?

Ned: Is there a difference?

Drew: Uh, well, it depends. If you're asking me for my personal endorsement or from Aurora Media, then --

Ned: Well, would that be so bad?

Drew: To ask, no.

Ned: But for you to give?

Drew: Look, I'll tell you exactly what Sam and I told Alexis. We couldn't endorse her because of her family connections, so the same rules apply to you. You can appeal to the editors of the press, if you like. We won't stand in your way, but Sam and I -- we're choosing to remain neutral.

Ned: All right.

Drew: Look, I-I really appreciate you stopping by and I really appreciate the kind words, but I am swamped. So I got to get some work done here and --

Ned: Whoa, whoa, whoa, h-- [Chuckles] Are those Alan's cufflinks?

Drew: Yeah. Yeah. Monica gave them to me.

Ned: Oh, nice. You see, that's what it means to be a Quartermaine. It's not about a choice. It's a legacy and actually, you recusing yourself -- excellent strategy. It actually makes you more of a Quartermaine, not less.

Drew: Okay, if you say so.

Ned: Enjoy the cufflinks. They look good on you.

Lulu: Someone else can write Ned Quartermaine's interview. I want to write your story. We should get your memoirs down on the record.

Peter: No. I only told you what I did for you to value your own self-worth. My work as your mentor is done, at least for today.

Lulu: You're breaking my heart here!

Peter: Well, I'm flattered, but surviving all the sad stories of toxic families -- it's a dime a dozen, Lulu.

Lulu: That is one way to look at it. Another is that everybody's story is unique, and when you put your story out there, although it is not like anybody else's, someone might read it and realize that they're not alone.

Peter: Well, if there are billions of unique stories out there, then you have plenty to choose from. So, in the meantime...

Lulu: I will respect your privacy.

Peter: Thank you.

Lulu: Hmm. Thank you. Distracting me from Nathan for a while.

Peter: What are friends for?

Nina: My brother is dead! Have some respect. Give us time to grieve. Please. [Sighs] We have to go to Maxie's to work out funeral arrangements, okay?

Valentin: Okay. Let me drive you.

Nina: No, we're going -- we're -- we're -- we're fine. We'll manage. Just... I beg you, get her out of the house. Please. Thank you.

Anna: [Voice breaking] I know they don't believe me, but I'm really sorry. I wouldn't be here if... the situation wasn't critical.

Valentin: Well, you're asking questions about a dead man, so just how critical are they?

Anna: Well, I really -- I have to make sure that everything to do with Faison... including his son is -- is really wrapped up, you know, for good.

Mike: Son, I -- I appreciate the offer, I-I really do, and -- and as much as I-I would love to see Carly and the grandkids, it's just that -- I have my routine here, you know. It keeps -- keeps me steady. Um, and my walks.

Sonny: Yeah, well, we have sidewalks and parks in Port Charles.

Rita: Hmm.

Mike: And my friends. You know, we meet every morning for coffee and --

Rita: And sneak cigars.

Sonny: [Laughs]

Rita: He promised me one a day in the evening, and he thinks that I can't smell it when he comes home in the afternoon.

Sonny: You want coffee? Who are you talking to? I got -- I got more coffee than you can ever dream of.

Mike: With all of that, I-I don't want to be away from my gal.

Rita: Oh, go.

Sonny: [Laughs]

Mike: You want to get rid of me that badly?

Rita: No, it's just -- it's upstate New York. It's not -- it's not Timbuktu. Everything's going to be here when you get back, including me. Hmm?

Sonny: What do you say, Pop? Why don't you... come to Port Charles, be with your family?

Mike: [Sighs] Okay. [Sniffles]

Sonny: All right.

Jim Harvey: There are a few joint ventures between my company and Aurora Media that I would love to run by you.

Sam: I didn't think Niagara was in the media business.

Jim Harvey: Oh, we're not, but, uh, every company needs a media presence.

Sam: You know, what I think you need is an advertising agency, but don't worry about it. I'll give this to Drew and the two of you can figure it out.

Jim Harvey: That's all I ask.

Sam: Okay.

Jim Harvey: Well, if you'll excuse me, you lovely ladies, uh, my luncheon companion has arrived.

Alexis: Bon appetit.

Jim Harvey: Thank you.

Ned (to Jim): Hey. Glad to see you.

Sam: Do you think Ned saw you?

Alexis: Given his effort to avoid my glance, I'd say yeah, he saw me.

Sam: Are you going to confront him about the ad?

Curtis: Why would dude mug my auntie, then stick around to press charges after she defended herself?

Julian: Okay, so the night that she's registering people to vote, the street lights go out.

Curtis: And the security cameras go on the blink.

Julian: Yeah, what are you thinking?

Curtis: I'm thinking my auntie has been very vocal in her opposition to the Charles Street development.

Julian: Hmm, so she gets arrested for assault...

Curtis: Then she looks like the crazy lady and the bad guy. You know what? I think that mugging was not a coincidence.

[Laughter]

Jim Harvey: He said, "let me tell you..."

Ned: That's funny. [Laughs]

Jim Harvey: I'll tell you the funny part.

Ned: [Laughs]

Peter: There's something I need to talk to you about.

Drew: Okay. Fire away.

Peter: So, um, well, first of all, I want to say thank you to you and Sam both for this amazing opportunity. It's a great company you have.

Drew: Where are you going with this?

Peter: I'm tendering my resignation. It's time for me to leave Port Charles.

Anna: Did you ever cross paths with Faison after you left the WSB? What? That's funny?

Valentin: Uh, you're funny. Because for a seasoned professional, you really are making a mess of this.

Anna: What am I messing up?

Valentin: Anna, I could field these vague and ridiculous questions all afternoon. I really could, but my wife wants you gone. So why don't we cut to the chase? How about you ask me what I know about your child with Faison?

On the next "General Hospital" --

Michael (to Kiki): Nelle understands there's no future between us.

Nelle (to Ava): If I'm going to pull this off, I'm gonna need your help.

Sam (to Alexis): I have a favor to ask you.

Liz (to Franco): I think I know exactly what it means.

Drew (to Peter): I refuse to accept this, without some sort of explanation.

Carly (to Jason): What do you think?

Valentin (to Anna): If you leave now, you are missing the best part of the story.
