Carly: And it's driving me crazy that gladys wants us to bring brando in -- okay, just forget -- just forget gladys, okay?

[ Sighs ] Yeah. Brando risked his life for us when he went to work for cyrus. He's proven he's loyal, and if this is something he really wants... so you're okay with bringing him in?

[ Sighs ] He's gonna be a dad, so the smart choice is for him to stay away from the business. Yeah. But he is capable, he's loyal, he's smart. And I don't know -- if this is the job he wants, I'm not gonna turn him away.

[ Up-tempo music playing ] Sasha. Hey. I was just about to hop into the pool. Would you care to join me? Uh, I have to pass. I can't find any lounges to put my stuff on. Well, take mine. Come on. I'm not gonna let my kid's mom go without. Rocco, rocco, rocco, buddy, no cannonballs this time, okay?

[ Water splashes ] Didn't want you to get people wet by the pool. Nice try, dad. Oh, hey, you're a cop. Can you arrest my kid for me? You want me to arrest your son for doing cannonballs? Yep, I do. Just scare him a little bit. He doesn't listen to a thing I say. Well, last I heard, you rejoined the force, while I am on a nice, long... paid vacation. Did you bring your handcuffs? Listen, enough with this paid-vacation stuff, okay? Get yourself back to work. We can arrest my kid together just like old times. Hey, partner? I got michael's text that, uh, I should pick up wiley here. Are they upstairs? Uh, wiley's still napping, and michael's running late -- a meeting with his family. Yeah, I heard there was some drama last night at the elq board meeting. You know, apparently there's never a dull moment when the quartermaines get together to talk about business. I wonder how old wiley will be when he joins the fray. Thanks, pascal. Yes, michael and i look forward to hearing from you and your team. Talking to the elq lawyers about austin? What'd they say? They need time to study the matter. Michael sent them the docs supposedly proving that austin is jimmy lee holt's son. But we'll be asking for our own dna test. Just to make sure that the birth certificate and dna test that scott baldwin gave us are legitimate. Really burns me how great-grandfather cheated on grandmother lila. I mean, the woman was a saint. Grandfather's indiscretions are beside the point. Now, listen, we have to assume that our own dna test will confirm that austin is jimmy lee's son. He may actually be a relative. Yeah, but does that entitle austin to a slice of the quartermaine pie? Doing your homework? Dr. Alan quartermaine's reputation was legendary. Gifted doctor, devoted father, pillar of the community. You forgot philanderer and scoundrel. I did. You're my new boss. I'm trying to be polite. Or are you just trying to play dumb? Trying to pull one over on me and my family, just like your father, jimmy lee holt, did back in the day? Phyllis caulfield. I think I may know you. Mm. I don't see how, unless you're a former patient, in which case I apologize for not recognizing you. No, I'm not a former patient. I think my ex-wife may have been -- nina reeves. Mm. May I help you? Oh, uh, yes, yes, maybe you can. I'm looking for someone.

And you are? I'm valentin cassadine. I assume nina told you about me, and I probably didn't come off terribly well. I'm sorry, mr. Cassadine, but I can't discuss my patients, former or current. No, I completely understand, and for what it's worth, I deeply regret all the harm that I've caused nina. She's a very special woman. Yes, she is. And I can tell you this much -- she's doing just fine without you. Anna: I'm looking for a medivac pilot. His name is david hopkins. Was he injured? Uh, no. Not as far as I know. Then he wouldn't be in the E.R. Let me take you to human resources. Okay, thank you. Wiley's schedule was off this morning. He went down late for his nap, and he's still at it. Oh, that's okay. Um, the quartermaine pool will always be here. Would you like to reschedule? No, uh, if it's okay, can I just wait? I brought some of wiley's favorite, uh, snacks and some of these really cute water wings. You and michael probably have a ton for wiley, but they are so cute I couldn't resist. Then stay, of course. I'm sure wiley will be up soon. And he'd be devastated to miss an afternoon with his grandma nina. It's too early to say whether or not austin will end up with a stake in elq.

[ Sighs ] That depends on the outcome of his lawsuit contesting great-grandfather's will. But how can austin claim rights to quartermaine assets that his father didn't even have to begin with? Well, you know what? That's something for the lawyers to argue. I don't know.

[ Scoffs ] Like scott baldwin? That's the guy he chooses to go after our money? Look, let's face it, guys -- austin is not trying to legitimize dear old dad. He's shaking us down. I'm sensing that you didn't like my father. Oh. We had our ups and downs. Just like you and alan. And edward and tracy. Is there a quartermaine that you didn't have an issue with? Lila. Lila. Great. There's one. And annabelle. Annabelle. I don't recall an annabelle from the family tree. Well, she was the family dog. Right. Yeah. And a dog would never disappoint you. No, she got knocked up by a mutt. Way beneath her station. You don't like the strays. Well, monica, if you give me a chance, I'll try not to dig up the rose garden. Anyway, man, how's, uh, newlywed life? My married life still hasn't begun. I can't walk, and despite physical therapy, this is my great success. Well, it is -- that is -- that's great success, no? When did you become such a ray of sunshine? Since I decided I needed my partner back at work to stop me from doing questionable things. Like? Dante: You know, for what it's worth, um, I think jason messed up. He had a chance at a lifetime. And he didn't take it.

[ Fireworks exploding ] If it were me, I would have chosen you. Uh, never mind. Hey, sam. It's been a while. Can I get you a table or a seat at the bar? Uh, that's -- that's okay. I'm here to see maxie. It's a nice rock. Do you mind if I talk to you for a minute? I'm gonna, um, tell maxie you're here. Um, sam's here. Well, this should be interesting. So...

[Exhales deeply] You and carly -- it's finally happening. I'm sorry, uh, you didn't hear the news from me first. It's okay. It's not your fault. I mean, we keep... missing each other. Missing. Did you tell danny? No. No, I'm gonna leave that one up to you. Okay, thank you. Besides, I wouldn't even know what to say to him. Because I don't know the first thing about your engagement.

Hey. Thanks. Too much sun? Not enough? Uh, do you want a soft drink from the bar or... I'm good, thanks. Enjoy your swim. Uh... everything okay? No. Yeah, no. Yes. I mean, I just -- I don't want to invade your space or anything. I just -- I haven't seen a lot of you lately. I've been busy. And it's not like I've seen a lot of you, either. Yeah, well, um, after you didn't tell me about your last checkup, I thought maybe you wanted me to stay away. You just returned to the pcpd, and you're already racking up I.A. Demerits? Oh, hell no. Not me. Never. Then what's going on?

[ Sighs ] Is this even about work? It's about a woman. When did you

and carly decideyou wanted to marry each other? You know, carly's, uh, my best friend. Okay. And you were able to express your feelings

after Sonny died? Yeah, yeah, we both know what it feels like, losing Sonny, and we both have, uh, you know, empty space in our lives. Oh. So...a shared loss. Yeah. Nothing else? We understand each other. We know what we're getting into.

[ Exhales deeply ] Yeah, I know all about that. I've always known where you and carly stood with each other. First in line, ahead of everybody else. I'm not worried. Good, good. Then, uh, congratulations on your engagement. I know you and jason will make each other very happy. You guys have been friends for a long time, which is why I'm not too surprised.

[ Chuckles ] Thank you. Uh, but I really wanted to talk about you. I'm not sure if you're aware, but when michael was a baby, he was kidnapped. Yeah, by my uncle tony. I know the family lore. Well, the point being is that I kind of know what you're going through. So if you need a shoulder to cry on, mine are Available. I know the police and the fbi are searching for louise and peter, but if there's anything jason and I could do, please let me know. Thank you. Hey, maxie, I'm so sorry to keep you waiting. It's okay. Be with you in a minute. Um, can I talk to you for a second, please? Of course. Look, I, um -- I know you and jason would not have gotten engaged if it weren't for a good reason or if you hadn't lost Sonny. So if there's anything I can do to help, please just... let me know, okay? Yeah. There you go. Thank you. It's really sweet of you to say that I have made an impact on wiley's life, but I've been away for so long, he's had to get used to me all over again. Nina, don't sell yourself short. Wiley knows when the people around him love him. He's crazy about you. Thank you. You know, I was worried when I returned to port charles that he would run away screaming from the stranger. Oh. Wasn't going to happen.

[ Chuckles ] It was important wiley know who both his grandmas are. Mm. Yeah, that's carly. That's me. Michael and I call this "wiley's family." We tell wiley about you all the time, because you are part of his family. Nina stayed with my husband and me in nixon falls. That's where nina went when she was told she couldn't see her grandson. Wiley. Thank you... for helping nina. It wasn't only lenny and me. Mike had a lot to do with it as well. Mike? Done with the tests? I'm gonna get phyllis. Uh, uh, don'T. Why? It's bad, isn't it?

So, what do you think? Do we just hold our noses and buy this guy off? Austin won't accept the money. He's in this for his father, the late, not-so-great, jimmy lee holt. Did you ever meet him? I mean, what was this guy like? Well, I heard a lot of stories, but what I do know for sure is that when jimmy lee left port charles for pautuck, grandfather washed his hands of him, which is why when he wrote his will, he specifically said jimmy lee and his heirs get nothing. So if we give austin stock, we are literally violating great-grandfather's final wish. Yes. So if we can't buy him off and we can't let him obtain any stock, well, then we win him over. I was sorry to hear about jimmy lee's passing. May I ask how? End-state copd. Oh. Not a pleasant ending, I'm afraid. No, it wouldn't be. And there was nothing mom or I could do to help ease his passing. And he could barely talk. But it didn't stop him from asking about edward. Well, my, after all these years? I hadn't realized how heavily his estrangement from edward weighed on him. He was on his deathbed wondering how he had offended his father, begging for a chance to know how to make it right. So, now you want to make it up to jimmy lee by getting a seat at the elq table that was denied him, right? Like it or not, I'm family, and I'm not gonna let you or any of the other quartermaines tell me otherwise. Why do you think I don't want you around? Uh, you've been busy with deception and, uh... and of course, there's my mom.

[ Sighs ] How is your roomie? Full of unwanted advice. Is she the one telling you I don't want you in the baby's life? Is my mom right? I wish she hadn't said that to you. Well, I wish I could feel better about your answer, but my mom isn't completely wrong, is she?

[ Sighs ] Hey. Hey. What -- what did, uh -- what'd sam say? We have her support. It's better than being damned to hell. Still, I can't imagine she's too excited about our engagement. Yeah, she hasn't told danny. She figured I'd want to be the one to explain. What are you gonna say?

[ Sighs ] That you and I, we're doing what we think is right and that I will always love him. It's not gonna change. I'm always gonna be his father. Sounds good to me. Yeah. So, um, can you tell me exactly again what happened with joey novak? Um, okay, but I don't understand. I thought you said you weren't worried. Yeah, no, I'm not worried, but this guy, you know, he could do something stupid, something that requires a response. Okay, well, whatever you did, you hurt his pride because he got up in my face and he said, "tell your fiancÚ he's not as secure as he thinks he is." And what'd you say? I told him he should say it to your face, so I went to text you, but then brando stepped in. And brando really knows what he's doing. Maybe brando saw you about to throw down with joey novak and stepped in to do a good deed. And if I would have thrown down? I would have backed you. Okay? But I'm glad it -- I'm glad it didn't get that far. Me, too. Alright, well, I got to go, uh, -- I got to go see monica. Okay. I'll see you back at the house.

[ Sighs ] How soon do you start treatment? I'll set up a series of appointments for lenny. Do you have any further questions? Not at the moment. Thanks, doctor. I'll give you some privacy. I'm gonna -- I'm gonna get phyllis. Phyllis is talking to some stranger. Let's leave her be. Lenny, phyllis has to know at some -- and she will. But she came here looking for hope. Let her hang on to that hope for another minute before I take it away from her. Mike works for lenny and me in nixon falls. We own a bar called the tan-O. And this Mike was helpful to nina, was he? Extremely. Oh, h-hi. Sorry. Am I interrupting? That's perfectly alright. I need to check on my husband. Phyllis, it was nice to meet you. You as well. Who was that? It's a friend of nina'S. Really? Small world. Isn't it? Where have you been? I was worried about you. No need. I got a line on our pilot.

15 minutes, okay, buddy? Alright. Ohh. What the hell is that?

[ Chuckles ] Just one sip of this baby, and you will be singing the name of the girl of your dreams. You know what? Detective, you can shine a light in my eyes, I still am not gonna talk. Come on, you're a cop. You know how this goes. The harder a witness ducks interrogation to try not to give a straight answer, the more they have to hide.

[ Sighs ] Is everything okay with jason? You mean how do I feel about him marrying carly? Well, I did hear that you torched some of his belongings. Wow. Word gets around fast. Um, no, actually, I'm -- I'm fine. In a way, it makes sense for [Sighs] Jason and carly to get married. Have you been seeing kevin collins? No, I don't need a shrink. Really, I'm at peace with it. It...didn't hurt to burn some of the mementos of the bad old days. Well, if it were me, the only way I would feel peaceful about it is if I had someone to go home to. If it were me, I would have chosen you. Yeah, that wouldn't help as much as you think. Now, why would you say that? Sam, do you have a man? You and I were doing so well -- when you shared our baby's ultrasound photo with me, and then you went radio silent. I can't help but wonder, was it something that I said or did?

[ Scoffs ] Brando, you have been nothing but thoughtful and dependable. Please do not give me that whole "it's not you, it's me" speech. It's -- okay. I won'T. Because it is you. I wasn't expecting that. Brando, you are exactly the man that I would want to raise a child with, but if my choice is to raise this baby by myself or to raise it with a man who's working for the corinthos mob or any mob -- that is no choice. You have a picture of wiley and me. Michael and I are always looking at the photo album with wiley and talking to him about his family.

[ Chuckles ] We want to make sure our son has relationships with everyone, even those he doesn't see very often. That's really wonderful. But still, wiley must wonder why his grandma nina was gone for so long. Wiley was at the playground a couple months ago. He fell, scraped his knee, and had to take it easy for a while. We told him that his grandma nina had a boo-boo of her own, which is why she had to go away. She needed to take it easy for a while, too. Yeah. And if wiley asks if I'm all better? What will you say? What will I say? That I am.

[ Knock on door ] Hey, michael asked me to stop by, but I wanted to drop down and see my grandson first.

[ Chuckles ] The closer austin gets to us, the less likely he'll wage war. A charm offensive. I have a better idea. We hire a P.I. Brook lynn, we don't have time for an in-depth investigation into austin's background. Yeah, especially when there's no guarantee that it'll turn up with anything defamatory. Yeah. Austin's major goal is quartermaine recognition of his father, jimmy lee. So...why not give it to him? But, you know, you're the ceo-in-waiting, so it's your decision. So, why fight a family when you can be part of it, right? Monica, are you offering me shares of elq?

[ Laughs ] No, that is not even in my control. No? Besides, I don't really think that you'd be all that happy with just shares. It's not about happy or unhappy, it would make me family. When my father was disowned by edward, the rest of the quartermaines never gave him a second thought. I think that would have been different if he had had shares of elq or a vote to cast. So you are saying that elq is family, and family is elq. Isn't it? Well, you can ask my son jason how he feels about elq, and he's still very much a part of the family.

Nina has a pool date with wiley today, but he's napping. Let me go check on him. Wiley has such a full schedule. I should have made an appointment first. Well, maybe after you talk with michael, you could join wiley and me at the pool. I don't want to intrude. It's no intrusion. I'm sure wiley would love to have both his grandmothers around. Plus, it'll give me a chance to toast your engagement. I understand. How long before I get to see the images? Well, edward's libido strikes again. Austin's father, jimmy lee holt, was the product of a dalliance between edward and a woman named beatrice leseur. And -- and what does -- what does austin want? He wants to be a quartermaine. Well, is he? Well, he brought his birth certificate and a dna test to prove it. You want me to check this guy out? Would you? I mean, unless you would prefer to keep your distance. No, no, I'm happy to help. Thank you. Well, I see no reason why we can't welcome austin... dad! ...As we figure out a way to shut him down. Wrong! Look, we don't have time to welcome the good doctor into the family fold. He's dangerous. How so? Maxie: Okay, what if he woke up and got a glimpse of you? A-and when he runs into you around town o-or sees you at a pediatrician appointment, it all comes back to him? Brook lynn, what makes you think that austin is anything more than a potential problem for elq? What do you know about this man that michael and I don't? So, I showed my wsb badge to the head of human resources, and I told her that david hopkins was a person of interest. And? She said he's probably over at ryan's bar. What, the one we just left? Yeah. Opposite the hospital. He goes there after finishing his shift. Well, then let's go. No. Yes, okay. I feel like a subtle approach is gonna be necessary for this, so I want to do this alone. You do have a man in your life. Good for you! Who is he? Do I know him? How long has this been going on? Maxie, calm down. There's nothing to tell. Sam, please, I have very little joy in my life, and I need something to be happy about.

[ Groans ] Okay. There is a guy.

[ Gasps ] I knew it. Details, please. We kissed. Oh, my god. Stop. It wasn't a big deal. I had just found out that jason and carly were getting married and I was totally wasted, and we kissed and it doesn't count. Okay, have you kissed anyone else since you and jason split? Ew. No.

[ Gasps ] Then the kiss definitely counts. Do I know her? Look, what part of "I ain't talking" don't you understand? All of it. Come on, you know I won't quit till you cough something up, so it's better just to get it over with. Yeah, I-I shouldn't have said anything. It was -- it was a weird night. She was in a-a-a rough place, and we got to talking, that's all. It was nothing. But you think it could be something? Oh, man. Maybe this "nothing" with mystery girl could turn into something if you give it a chance. Sorry to take so long. Did I miss dr. Kishore? I'm afraid so. Well, what did she say? What's going on with your heart? Uh, it's not my heart, phyllis. It's cancer.

[ Gasps ]

[ Cries ]

Look, man, you weren't there. I was. She was in A...bad place emotionally, okay? I'm not gonna be the guy who takes advantage of something like that. Okay, I'm sorry I pushed it. Oh, hey, no, it's cool. You get a "get out of jail free" pass 'cause you're in a newlywed trance, so you think everyone's wandering around all happy and in love just 'cause you are. Well, I highly recommend happiness. Mm-hmm. And if you ever get another chance at it... do yourself a favor and take it. Yeah. I don't know if it's in the cards for me, man. It would be nice, though. Fine. The kiss counts. Happy now? Can we move on? No, not yet. I want to dwell vicariously in this. There's nothing to dwell about. You asked me here for a reason. What is it that I can do for you? Oh, right. Um, I-I need to ask you for a favor. I'm taking georgie and james with me to texas to visit my family for a while. So you can... stop worrying about louise for a little while? Yeah, and peter. I need to catch my breath and put myself back together, and I cannot do that here in port charles with everyone walking on eggshells around me. Well, what is it that I can do for you? Keep your eye on spinelli. Ellie left him. And since I'm gonna have georgie with me, he's gonna need looking after.

[ Sighs ] Poor spinelli. Yeah, um, go to texas. Don't worry about him. I'll make sure he's okay. Where's dr. Quartermaine? Jason: Uh, she had a meeting. Huh. Yeah. I understand you and I have something in common, jason. I understand you and I are both from the illegitimate branch of the quartermaine tree. Doesn't make me care any less about my family. Right. Care about the family. What about elq? You care about elq? If it matters to them, it matters to me. And I'll do whatever it takes to protect them both -- the quartermaines and their company.

[ Elevator bell dings ] So why is austin suddenly claiming rights to his family now? Something happened where now he thinks it's the right time to fleece the qs. Brook lynn, I get it. You're still trying to make up for selling your shares to valentin, but you have more than redeemed yourself. There is no evidence that austin is this threat that you're worried he is. I overheard your mother say that you could be jason morgan's right-hand man. I respect jason. There's worse people to work for, as you know, because I worked for one. You only took the job with cyrus to spy on him for Sonny and jason. But I got close to cyrus, too, and I almost died because of it. But at the time, I had no one to protect. Now I do, and that is all the reason I need to never set foot in that world again. Is this enough reason for you?

[ Sighs ] You're saying I can't be subtle? Yes. Uh, yes. You see, a-a woman on her own is far more approachable than a woman accompanied by a man. Okay, fine, we'll play it any way you want to, but there's no way in hell I'm letting you go in there without a wingman. Fine. Great. But we do this my way. You're the boss.

[ Crying ] Cancer? Dr. Kishore decided to look further than my heart. I had a scan. There's a mass on my pancreas. How, uh...large? It's pretty far along. It doesn't mean that lenny doesn't have options. The doctor said that there's chemotherapy, there's surgery. Which could put us in the poorhouse. And I won't do that to you. It's alright. It's al-- jax mentioned that you and jason got engaged. I'm sure jax did more than just mention it. He's worried about you. For no reason. My engagement to jason, that's the way things are supposed to be. Okay. Seems like it's been a long time coming.

[ Cellphone rings ] Excuse me.

[ Sighs ] I'm gonna go up to the house and see michael. Carly. Thank you for giving me some time with wiley. With the way our grandson smiles at you, it's proof you make him very happy.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Door closes ] Oh, geez. Okay. Okay, okay, okay, okay.

[ Sighs ] Hey, Mike. Um, I'm sorry I couldn't answer your call earlier. Yeah, uh... I'm sorry to bother you. I... I didn't want to make this call. Why? What's wrong? We need you. Phyllis, lenny, and me. Is there any way you can come home?
