say so sorry I'M...late. You're not dr. Hollis. Wrong room. Maybe. Maybe not.

[ Chuckles ] Are you okay? Curtis. Hey, laura. Hey, you're on my call list. I needed to check in with you. Oh, well, yeah. I-I meant to do the same. So, whatever happened with florence grey? Did you figure out a connection between her and cyrus?

 Cyrus renault is your half-brother? Yeah, and believe me, I was every bit as surprised as you are right now. Damn. I'm so sorry. Yeah.

[ Door closes ] Yeah, it's gonna take a little bit of getting used to, but, you know, once I got over the initial shock, I started to notice things about cyrus, and as far as I can see, everything he does is to try to win the approval of his mother. His mother. Yeah. But not his father? Who's also my father, and, no, gordon grey's been dead for years. Is that a loss for you?

[ Chuckles ] No. Never met him, never missed him. I had sort of a complicated start to life, but it's okay. I was loved. And by the time my biological mother came into my life permanently, lesley, she became the driving force in it, so, no, gordon grey was just a name to me. Mm. So where does this leave you with cyrus? As far as I'm concerned, nowhere. But cyrus seems to think otherwise. He keeps trying to draw comparisons between us. Aw, pssht. There's no comparison. I'd like to think there isn't, but he seems pretty intent on insinuating that we are cut from the same cloth. How so? By throwing certain incidents from my past life in my face.

[ Sighs ] I mean, as you know, I haven't always colored inside the lines, you know? I've made a lot of mistakes, I've done foolish things, and I've done harmful things. Yeah. I can only think of one reason why he would do that -- because he wants something. Any idea what? Yeah, he wants me to find his missing mother.

You have a mother?

[ Chuckles ] Wonders never cease to amaze. You expect me to believe jason doesn't confide in the mother of his children? I really don't care what you believe, and if you have accusations to make about jason, go directly to him, and don't use me as your go-between. Well -- excuse me. Sam, if you're all through here, I got something important to discuss with you. Can I get a scotch, please? Problem? Nothing I can't handle. May I be honest? You don't look like your usual take-charge self. And you look like you need a fix. But don't expect to be invited up to my apartment where you can search for a stash that isn't there. Better call your dealer. I nearly died from that stuff that you gave me... oh. ...And don't bother denying it. I know it was you. Packets of blow don't just appear under plates or get handed off in envelopes from strangers. But you have celebrity status around here. That comes with certain benefits. There was nothing beneficial about winding up in a hospital with a heart attack. And to be clear, I don't need a fix. What I need is therapy, which I am getting. Maybe you should try it. To deal with your mommy issues. I'm fine. Thanks. Did the doctor examine those abs? I mean, ribs.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Chuckling ] Yeah. All good? Nothing broken? No. Good to go. Then I guess tj didn't do too much damage. Wow. Word travels fast around here. Like a rocket. D-did you, um... take me away from cyrus because you wanted to actually talk to me about something or you wanted to get me away from him? Well, I definitely wanted you away from that dirtbag, but, honestly, I'm concerned about your mother. Yeah, well, I am, too. Her drinking is out of control. She refuses to get help, even though she got arrested for a dwi. See, that's the thing. There's something about this whole drunk-driving story that just does not add up. Oh. [ Chuckles ] Are you talking about the part where she says that she wasn't behind the wheel? Yeah, I know. She tried to tell me that one, too. Sam, I know that it's the conventional wisdom, but sometimes I think the whole tough-love thing is a little bit overrated. I mean, whatever happened, alexis is still your mom, and she desperately needs someone on her side right now.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] Nope.

[ Sighs ]

[ Bottle clinks ] The doctor's still waiting for your test results, but he did mention he didn't think you'd require surgery. Well, I'll take that as good news.

[ Chuckles ] It is. I'm sure you'll start remembering soon. I'd hoped being in a safe place and getting cleaned up and into some clean clothes might clear your head. Well, because of my -- my heait's still murky up there. Mm. Well, try some dinner. Maybe that'll rev you up.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Laughs ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Ooh, my appetite is revving. I got to tell you.

[ Chuckles ] It smells good. At least you remember how to be hungry. I made bolognese... yeah. ...For the night staff here with a lemon pappardelle. In these cold winter months, I like to cook. It's my therapy. I'm sure you're a hell of a cook. Oh, come on.

[ Both laugh ] Eat while it's hot. I've been a nurse my entire adult life. I'm compulsive about taking care of people. Lucky me. Ah. I suppose you'll be stepping into Sonny's shoes. I'm just doing what I got to do right now, you know, for carly and the family. And at some point, I'm gonna have to meet...

[ Sighs ] I'm gonna have to meet with the five families. You know, last time Sonny was out of action, they tried to make a move on his territory, and I-I put out some feelers to see if somebody might try something. No need, jason. They already have. That's why I'm here.

I'm just saying, something is not quite copacetic about tracy's story, okay? And this is my mother-in-law that I'm calling out, right? Okay? But -- but the whole "I drove alexis home, and then I tried to get a coffee, I couldn't find the coffee," something about that just strikes me as off, you know? What, because tracy's not normally so decent and selfless? Well, you said that. I didn'T. But it's worth thinking about. I mean, alexis swears that she did not get behind the wheel. My mother is an alcoholic. She's trying to get herself out of a dwi. Okay, and I get it, sam. You don't want to be an enabler. Neither do I. You want her to take responsibility. You want her to get help. But -- but what if alexis is not responsible for this? Well, the sad fact is my mom was blacked-out drunk, and it's not the first time. But -- but it's j-- it's just something to think about. Okay, ned told me that alexis told him that she keeps her coffee right out on the countertop, right out there in plain sight. Yeah, she does, in a canister with the word "coffee" on it. So how does tracy miss that? Huh? I'm just saying, it might be worth looking into your mother's version of events. I have to say, I'm very disappointed, sasha. I always thought the two of us shared a special rapport. Now you're just sniping at me the way everyone around here does. Our special rapport took a hit when your gift resulted in a cardiac arrest. So you feel justified in kicking me when I'm down. Is that what I'm doing? My mother was kidnapped from her assisted-living facility. That concerns me greatly. But -- but you probably don't understand. After all, you got paid to pretend some stranger was your mother. I told you why I did what I did with nina. Right, because you wanted to pay your grandmother's medical bills. Sometimes we do what we have to for the sake of our loved ones, right? It's the same with me. My intentions have always been good when it comes to my mother. I just want her to be comfortable and well cared for. And now she's gone. I don't -- I don't know if she's being cared for at all, and...

[ Sighs ] And I'd think you, of all people, might be able to find just a hint of compassion for me. Ooh, I see you have a healthy appetite. Nurse caulfield, you make a hell of a mean bolognese.

[ Chuckles ] You use red wine or white wine? Ah, white, of course. Marcella hazan would rise up from her grave and smite me if I used red. It sounds like you know something about cooking. Maybe you're a five-star chef. Maybe I just like to eat.

[ Chuckles ] I saw those clothes you were wearing. They were dirty, but they were top-notch. I tried looking for clues to your identity, but all I can come up with is that you have a good tailor and expensive taste. Your shirt was from a store I passed on fifth avenue when I used to work in new york city. Maybe you liked to shop there? I don't know. Mm. Anybody looking for me yet? I'm sorry. I checked with the local authorities about missing persons. There have been no reports of anyone matching your description. Thank you for trying. Mm. It's not over. You're wearing a wedding ring, so there must be someone waiting for you to come home. Maybe they don't know you're missing yet. I'll bet your spouse will come looking for you. Jason confirmed that he has renault's mother? Uh, no. No, of course not. But I am sure that he does. He's got to have some kind of leverage against cyrus now that Sonny'S... dead.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] I think it's the first time I've said that out loud. It doesn't feel real to me, you know? It just doesn'T. I'm gonna miss him a lot. Yeah. I know I respected the man. I mean, he was always cool to me. I always admired his loyalty to his family and friends. His friends. Friends like you.

[ Chuckles ] Laura, I'm really sorry about your loss. Thank you, curtis. I just saw carly a few days ago, and she was trying so hard to hold onto some kind of hope. She has got to be devastated right now. I should really go over there and see the family. Well, I'm sure that'll mean a lot to them. But, laura, you've been through a lot, too. It's okay to take some time for yourself. I cultivated some personnel within the five families. People who'd be kind enough to give me a heads-up when something notable was taking place. I'm, uh -- I'm grateful for any information that you have. The novaks are moving some of its product through Port Charles. They started laying the groundwork last week. Where are they? Do you know? Yeah. Warehouse -- 46 allen street.

[ Sighs ] Alright, brick, thank you. I'll take it from here. No, not without me. You've done enough. You don't want to get in the middle of this. This ain't about me. It's about Sonny.

[ Sighs ]

[ Gun clicks ] You're sure this is the place? I was monitoring traffic in and out. They just landed a shipment. It shouldn't be this quiet. I can't hear anything.

[ Sniffs ] I smell gunpowder. Yeah, me, too.

[ Wind gusting ]

[ Knocking on door ] Sam: Mom? Can you open up, please? What?! Open up, mom. I-it's really cold out.

[ Security system beeping ] What are you two doing here? Have you joined forces? Because your jurisdiction ends at my front door. You can do it at the metro court but not here. Well aware. Can we come in? No. No. What are you doing? You washed your hands of me. Honey, you got to make up your mind. Mom, I-I'm not here about your drinking. I'm -- I'm over it. She's here because she cares about you, alexis, and so do I. Now, it's -- it's kind of cold out here. Can we come in? Really? Do -- do you care? Because you could barely look at me at Sonny and carly's, so who are you lying to? Are you lying to olivia or me? Poor you. What? You are so misunderstood. I wonder why that is. Maybe it has to do with the fact that you have no empathy or consideration for anyone other than yourself. That's just not true. No? Do you have any remorse or regret for that bomb that was planted at the floating rib? For the people that were hurt and terrorized and killed? Or was it just business as usual for you? Forget me for a moment. What about my mother? A helpless, frail, old woman at the mercy of jason morgan. I've spent some time with jason. Yeah, because you were with michael corinthos. Yeah, and jason wouldn't harm an older person, especially one who is sick. What is this nobility people ascribe to jason morgan? You're not the only one who thinks that kidnapping my mother just isn't jason's style. But you don't believe it because you're judging jason by your own standards, how you'll stoop to any level to get what you want, go after people's families no matter their age, even children. Well, everybody always believes the worst of me. Then why don't you change your ways? I... what are you doing? Huh? I told you not to bother mr. Renault. She's not bothering me. And where the hell were you? I expected you at least an hour ago. I worked for a few years in long-term care facility. I had patients who'd suffered terrible brain injuries and horrible trauma. Oh, yeah? Uh-huh. The brain is a remarkable organ. I saw patients come back from the worst injuries. It might take some time, but your brain has the power to heal. I've seen it happen. Just give yourself time, and don't lose hope. You are a wonderful cook...

[ Both chuckle ] ...And a nice lady. Mm. And you have a killer smile. Thank you. I think I did need that. Of course. Whenever you need a shoulder, I'm here for you. I know. I love that about you.

[ Sighs ] Now, I hate to bring this up, but Sonny's death leaves a vacuum in this city. And I'm not talking about donations to the nurses' ball. Yeah, I know. I am very concerned about Port Charles. What about jordan? Is she worried about it, too? I'm sure she is. I know that jason is working hard to try to keep cyrus from taking over Sonny's territory. God only knows what would happen to this town if he did that. Well, it's a double-edged sword. Renault could retaliate against jason, go all scorched-earth, and just wipe out anything and everything in his way.

[ Sighs ] Damn.

 So have you talked to jason directly about this? Yes, I have, and you can imagine how fruitful that was.

[ Both sigh ] Can I tell you something, just between us? Absolutely. I feel responsible for this because I'm the one who told carly about florence in the first place. No, no, no. Laura, don't go there, okay? Okay? It was carly who took the news to jason. Jason acted on it, so that's on them, not you. But, now, if you need my help, I could chase down florence. I did it once. I'll do it again. What about jordan? Does she have any more information about Sonny's death? Not sure. Hey, this is the second time I've asked about jordan and you give me a non-answer, so what's going on? I guess I've been noncommittal because... I don't know what jordan thinks anymore. And I haven't been home since before christmas. Somebody got to them before we could, but who'd stand to gain? I'm not sure. Any of your guys angling for a promotion? This wasn't our guys. This is not how we do business. Well, let's reassess later. Right now, we need to get the hell out of here.

[ Sighs ] Did whatever happened to your face have to do with why you're late? It's a personal matter. Got mixed up with the wrong woman. Didn't know she had a boyfriend. Now I do. Are you okay? That cut looks pretty bad. I've had worse. Besides, I deserved it. Thank you, sasha, for inquiring after brando's well-being. Now, if you'll excuse us, brando and i have business to discuss. Me, too. I have homework to do for my drug counseling. Feel better, brando.

[ Sighs ] We need to find my mother. I know julian's death has got to be affecting you, and I don't want you to be alone right now.

[ Security system beeping ] Why don't you just come in before the alarm goes off? You -- an alarm?

[ Security system beeps ] I didn't know you had an alarm. Yep. You'd know, but you haven't been by, so... well, when -- when did you get it? Recently, which you'd know if you had been by. Well, you already know why I haven't been by, mom. You know what? Uh, I'd like a cup of coffee, uh, to warm up a little bit. You mind if I make a pot? Sure. Help yourself. It's on the counter. Okay. What's all this? Ava dropped this off. Um, they were, uh, with julian's things. Oh, god, mom. No wonder.

[ Clears throat ]

[ Sniffles ] You know, the only good thing he did was give me you. And when I try to stop thinking about him, he always comes back. And I think he's gonna haunt me for the rest of my life.

Here we are. Coffee right where you said it would be, right out there on the counter. Uh, you sure you don't want a cup? I'm doing fine, thank you. Thank you, olivia. Mm-hmm. You know, I was just thinking, I-it's a wonder you didn't set the alarm off the night that tracy drove you home. Like, you would actually be coherent enough to enter your security code? I don't know how I would've remembered that since I don't even remember being here, no matter what tracy says. Jordan's lie affected a lot of people, starting with portia and Trina. Bless her heart, that young lady put herself directly in cyrus' sights because she believed he was the man responsible for killing her father. Yeah, but that's why jordan had to keep the fact that taggert was alive a secret, to protect them. I didn't need her to protect me. I didn't need her to keep it from me. But for some reason, my wife didn't trust me enough to tell me. Now, she tried claiming that she was keeping her police business separate from her marriage, but that's bull. Lies by omission seems to be a pattern that jordan has with me in particular, and guess what. It's played out. I'm over it. So are you at the point of giving up? I don't want to be. There's something fundamentally wrong with my marriage, and I don't know how to fix it. Jordan doesn't know how to fix it. So where does that leave us? Somehow jason morgan forced a transfer and got my mother released from her long-term care facility. Then he spirited her away to god knows where. And you -- and you went to jason? Yes. And he admitted it? Not in so many words, but I can tell when I'm being played. I'm -- I'm sorry to hear this. What can I do? You were close to your family once, close enough to pose as dev's father. Maybe you can shake some information loose from them. I told you, they don't trust me. They know I work for you. Get creative. Use your imagination. Go pay your respects over Sonny's death. Just do whatever it takes to squeeze information out of them. And if I come up empty? I-I-I-I might have to deploy my leverage. My lawyer can go to the feds at any time and inform them that you, the corinthos clan, and even your own mother conspired to keep dev in the country illegally. God knows I'd hate for that to happen. I have to go. Need me to get the car? No, s-stay here and nurse your face. I'll be in touch. And watch out for ex-boyfriends. You know, sasha was pretty tight with michael corinthos not too long ago. Brick: My guy with the novaks is completely in the dark about who did this.

[ Sighs ] Which brings me to my earlier point. It's got to be somebody who knows Sonny would not want them running this kind of product through Port Charles. It's got to be. Somebody shut the novaks down as a favor to Sonny's organization? Phyllis: We're at a disadvantage without your medical history, but your vitals are all good. Whatever you do, you've kept yourself in good shape. And I'd say you have good instincts and a strong will to survive those woods in the snow and the cold like you did. Do you have any memory of what happened to you? Trying. I just got -- I got nothing. Mm. Well, never mind. Like I said, I've seen some remarkable recoveries. Just lately, I visited one of my patients from that long-term care center I told you about. She was in a coma for 20 years, and now she's thriving in Port Charles, new york.

Well, regardless what you remember from that night, the most important thing is for you to figure out how you're gonna handle the dwi arrest. I know you think that I should be in rehab, but as far as the allegations of my dwi, it's not true. I didn't do it. I didn't drive drunk. I did not. I know what could happen. Okay, mom, do me a favor, please. Go upstairs, take a shower, clear your head. This way, we can make a plan as to how you're gonna fight this dwi charge. You know, a shower does sound good, and I agree with you. I'm gonna take some control here. Well, we know one thing for sure. The coffee is definitely right out on the counter, exactly where alexis said. I do not know how tracy could've missed it. I think there is a way to figure out if tracy was telling the truth... ...or flat-out lying. I don't want my marriage to fail, but jordan is not the only one with trust issues. Look, maybe if you could just talk to each other about what you're feeling... right, right. No, w-we've talked, and she promises to do better, but she doesn'T.

[ Sighs ] And then I believe her, and -- and -- and -- and -- and she lets me down over and over again. I can't take it anymore. I keep wondering what my wife is hiding from me now... mm. ...Or what lie she's gonna put between us next. Mm-hmm.

[ Sighs ] Look, I know I'm the shrink's wife, but have you considered marriage counseling? Kevin could find somebody great. I'm not sure it would help. Well, it couldn't hurt, right? Curtis, don't give up on your marriage just yet. I know how much the two of you love each other. Love. Love's not the problem. But what good is it without trust? Well, whatever you decide, I'm here for ya. Just a few hours ago, you said you needed to steer clear of me because I work with cyrus, and the next time I see you, you're provoking him? I overheard cyrus talking about his mother, and I felt it could be a teachable moment about how he's treated others. That's a -- that's a dangerous game. Don't worry about me. Worry about yourself. Judging by that split lip, you need to make better life choices, like, say, working for cyrus. And we've already established that you don't approve of my job. I don't approve of you being under cyrus' thumb. Case in point, that conversation looked pretty intense. You're not wrong.

[ Sighs ] You know, I have an idea, but I got to do some checking before I say who's responsible. Is there any way you can pull up that footage from the -- the warehouse? I dis-- I disabled the area security cameras on the drive over, remember? Yeah, it's better nobody knows we were there. You don't have to tell me that. Hey, jason. We will get to the bottom of this, no matter what it takes. For Sonny.

[ Knock on door ] Ohh. Cyrus. Three guesses what that bastard's here for.

[ Sighs ] I am so glad you're still open. I could really use a nightcap. It's in western new york, closer to pennsylvania. Ring any bells? A little chime. No bells. That's a beautiful vintage watch. Do you recognize it? There might be an inscription on it. You're not only kind, but you're sharp. As a tack.

[ Both chuckle ] But I didn't just wake up in the woods, now, did I? Go on. Let's see. "Mike, never enough time. Love, A." Mike? Your name is Mike. Nice to meet you.

[ Chuckles ]
