General Hospital Update Tuesday 5/25/04
Pictures by Juanita
THE POLICE STATION: Ric is in the middle of trying to film a news segment telling the public to contact the police if they see Laura Spencer. Luke enters the room, sees what Ric is doing (holding a picture of Laura up for the camera to see) and goes completely crazy -- trying to start a fight with Ric.
JAX'S PRIVATE JET: Jax and Courtney are sitting next to one another on the plane, on their way back to Port Charles...Courtney has fallen asleep and Jax puts his arm around her -- when she wakes up, she accuses him of trying to put the moves on her even when she was sleeping.
SONNY'S PENTHOUSE: Jason has found out that Sam has sold her boat and he believes she has left town. Sonny reprimands him for letting Sam leave...then Jason leaves. Carly comes downstairs and asks Sonny to take Michael to school for her, as she has to go take care of something.
JASON'S PENTHOUSE: Jason walks inside and sees Sam asleep on the couch. He walks over to her and she wakes up and asks where he has been. He replies, somewhat annoyed, that he was out looking for her. She points out that now he has found her.
THE POLICE STATION: Luke has been arrested for trying to fight with Ric, but Ric has the cops take the cuffs off...he and Luke go into the interrogation room. Ric asks Luke if he really thinks he is helping the situation by losing his temper all the time. Ric says that he understands how important Laura is to Luke, but he has to take the people of the town into consideration -- Laura does seem to pose a danger. He asks Luke if the rest of Port Charles matters to him.
THE HAUNTED STAR: Skye is alone at the bar, going through the casino's mail. There's someone watching her from the hallway...the person makes a noise and Skye jumps and calls out, "Luke?" Obviously, there's no answer.
JAX'S PRIVATE JET: Jax tells Courtney that she will change her mind about him once he has used all of his most charming moves on him. Courtney isn't so sure about that -- she still intends to win the bet. She moves over to the couch opposite Jax, who smiles at her and says nothing.
THE CELLAR: Faith has called Lorenzo for a meeting -- he shows up, a touch exasperated, and she tells him that she has been moving her people into position for a takeover of Sonny's territory. Faith asks Lorenzo to stay out of her way when she does eventually go to war with Sonny.
SONNY'S PENTHOUSE: Carly tells Sonny that she wants to go back to work at the Cellar. She asks him to let her handle it all in her own way. Michael comes downstairs and asks what's going on, and Carly tells him that she will let him know later, if it all goes according to plan. Carly leaves and Michael asks Sonny what Carly's secret is. Sonny says he doesn't know, and Michael asks if Sonny will walk him into the school building. Sonny said that he planned on it and asks what's wrong with that. Michael replies that when the kids at school see Sonny they recognize him from t.v. and stare...but Michael says that he's glad that Sonny's his father. (Editor's Note: AJ is Michael's biological father. This is one viewer that will never, ever forget that.)
JASON'S PENTHOUSE: Jason brings Sam some tea. Sam is surprised that it's peppermint tea and asks him where he got it and he says that Brenda bought it while they were married and living together. Sam is shocked to hear that Jason was married to Brenda, the woman that Carly has told her she (Sam) resembles somewhat but will never be able to replace in either Sonny's heart or Jax's heart. Jason explains that Brenda thought that she was sick and would eventually need someone to commit her to a mental institution -- the person who eventually did that, however, would have to be her husband, so she asked Jason to marry her. Jason says that they got married in Las Vegas and that it was the worst wedding ever ("There was this accordion player that I wanted to kill"). Sam asks Jason why he did it in the first place and Jason says that he wanted to protect Sonny and Carly's marriage from Brenda -- that Carly was jealous of Sonny and Brenda's bond and Jason was concerned that she would wreck her own marriage and hurt little Michael in the process. Jason explains that he's kind of doing the same thing with Sam's baby...he says that since Michael and Morgan need their parents and Sam's baby needs a father, he is willing to take Sonny's place. He points out that this plan will work if Sam will only cooperate.
THE HAUNTED STAR: Skye is still being watched, even as she moves from the bar to one of the tables to arrange some poker chips. Suddenly the mysterious woman makes a noise -- Skye looks up and sees the woman running to another area of the casino. Instead of panicking, or immediately following the woman, Skye grabs a letter opener and looks at it, thoughtfully, formulating a plan.
THE CELLAR: Faith tells Lorenzo that if he doesn't interfere with her war with Sonny she will compensate him. Lorenzo tells her that he'll swoop in and take the territory himself, later, after Faith's plan has all been shot to hell. Faith sarcastically thanks him for the vote of confidence. At that point Carly enters, sees them talking, and asks what's going on.
SONNY'S PENTHOUSE: Michael comes downstairs dressed for school and asks Sonny to sign a permission slip. He looks somewhat depressed, and he says it's because he is worried about Sonny and Carly having another fight. Sonny takes him over to the couch and they sit down. He tells Michael that he can't look at the world so differently just because bad things can happen. He says that there was a point when he was so sad and angry that he wanted to stay in his room, shut off from everyone. Michael asks what made him feel better, and Sonny says that he snapped out of it when Carly moved in and brought Michael with her...little baby Michael made him stop worrying about all of the bad things that could happen. Michael replies that he never wants to stop being a family and Sonny tells him that he loves him from the bottom of his heart and he always will. Michael says that he loves Sonny too. They hug.
JASON'S PENTHOUSE: Sam wants to go over the "basics" -- she says that what she doesn't like about Jason is that he doesn't talk about what he wants...for example, she doesn't believe he *really* wants her child. Jason asks her how much she knows about raising kids...when she admits she knows nothing, Jason says he didn't either, before Michael. Jason says that Sam has no money or security, so she can't provide for her baby alone. He, however, can make sure she is safe and comfortable. He promises to do whatever he can to make them both happy. But Sam is worried that eventually she'll blow Sonny's marriage apart, hoping that Sonny will come back to her. Sam explains that she wants to let the child be adopted by some loving parents. She goes to the table, grabs her bag of belongings, and asks Jason to please explain her decision to Sonny. Then she leaves.
THE AIRPORT: Jax invites Courtney to dinner with him before they go home. Courtney tells him he's insane, that she has already spent way too much time with him and that she needs to go home to take care of business for her foundation. She thinks Jax will spend the whole dinner trying to seduce her and she wants no part of it. Jax points out that that would be violating the rules of their wager -- Courtney agreed to allow herself to be wined and dined.
THE HAUNTED STAR: Skye follows the mysterious woman to a storage closet out on the deck of the boat...once the woman has gone inside the closet, Skye slams the door shut and slides the letter opener through the door handle, jamming it. The woman beats on the door, trying to get out, and Skye apologizes, explaining that she'll get her the help that she needs.
THE CELLAR: Faith tells Carly that Lorenzo is none of Carly's business anymore and also to get out of her club. Carly snaps, "No, it's MY club," and shows Faith some papers she got from Justus Ward -- it seems that the claim that Faith had on the Cellar doesn't hold much weight in court. Faith looks at the papers and tells Carly that she plans to fight this decision, but Carly reassures her that she'll lose if she tries. Faith leaves in a huff. After she has gone, Lorenzo congratulates Carly but also asks her why it matters to her what he does in his spare time.
SONNY'S PENTHOUSE: Jason comes to break the bad news to Sonny -- Sam has left and plans to give the baby up for adoption. Sonny becomes angry and says that he will never allow his child to be adopted by another couple.
THE AIRPORT: Jax tells Courtney that she is sneakier than she looks -- she is trying to cheat to get out of their bet. Courtney calls Jax the most transparent man she has ever met, for trying to provoke her into accepting his invitation. Jax replies that it's just dinner, and it's all on him. Courtney smiles as she realizes that she can get him to spend a ton of money on her over the next three months. She agrees to go to dinner on the condition that it is the most expensive place he knows. Jax grins and asks her what time she would like the car sent to pick her up. He leaves and Courtney follows shortly afterward.
SONNY'S PENTHOUSE: Sonny is pissed that Sam has left, and now he wants to go after her. Jason begs him to reconsider, knowing that if Carly discovers the truth about Sam's baby, she and the kids will leave Sonny. Jason plays the Michael card, asking Sonny if Sonny really wants Michael to live without the family he loves. Sonny hesitates.
THE CELLAR: Lorenzo asks why Carly cares about what happens to him and she replies that she can't stop herself -- it would be easier, she says, if he really was a crazy obsessed stalker, but he's not, and she knows that. She says that she used to be like him, relentless in trying to get what she wanted, but being a mom has changed her. Lorenzo says he understands, gives her congrats again, and then leaves the club, Carly staring after him.
THE HAUNTED STAR: Skye is calling the cops to report that Laura is in the storage room. Luke runs in, grabs the phone away from her and hangs it up. Skye explains that she didn't call Luke first because she knew he would try to let Laura go. Luke demands that Skye hand over the key to the storage closet, immediately. Skye and Luke argue over the key and in his anger Luke wrenches Skye's hand, freeing the key. He apologizes for hurting her, grabs the key and leaves to go to the storage closet.
THE CELLAR: Courtney and Jax show up at the Cellar together, much to Carly's surprise -- they were in the limo going out to dinner when Carly called Courtney and said she needed to speak to her. Courtney nervously tries to explain what she and Jax are doing together and Jax eagerly suggests to Courtney that Court tell Carly about the bet, while he gets himself a drink. After he leaves Carly demands to know what's going on, so they sit down at a table and Courtney tells her: if she can go three months without sleeping with Jax, he'll give her ten million dollars. Carly thinks that Courtney is out of her mind for making a bet with a man who is used to getting what he wants. Carly tells Court that she was planning to suggests that they hold a fund raiser for Courtney's foundation at the Cellar, but notes that maybe Courtney's idea of "fund raising" will work out a little better. They both turn to look at Jax, who is at the bar -- he smiles and raises his drink at them. Courtney laughs at his toast and looks at Carly with a slight shrug of her shoulders.
SONNY'S PENTHOUSE: Sonny says that he can't let his baby go live with strangers, as he isn't made up that way. He tells Jason that he will have to tell Carly the truth. The opening beats of the song "I Shall Believe" begin to play in the background.
THE AIRPORT: "Come to me now...lay your hands over me. Even if it's a lie, say it will be all right, and I shall believe. Broken in two, I know you're on to me. That I only come home when I'm so all alone, but I do believe." Sam has a ticket in her hand and she is getting ready to board a plane to leave Port Charles.
SONNY'S PENTHOUSE: "That not everything is gonna be the way you think it oughta be. Seems like everytime I try to make it right it all comes down on me. Please say honestly you won't give up on me. And I shall believe." Sonny has poured himself a drink and he is walking around the penthouse, alone. He goes to his desk and looks at a picture of his family -- Carly, Michael and Morgan.
JASON'S PENTHOUSE: "And I shall believe. Open the door, show me your face tonight. I know it's true, no one heals me like you, and you hold the key." Jason walks in...he looks depressed. He goes over to the table next to the couch where he and Sam were sitting earlier, picks up Sam's mug and throws it against the wall. Then he takes off his jacket and sits on the pool table, deep in thought.
THE AIRPORT: "Never again would I turn away from you. I'm so heavy tonight, but your love is all right and I do believe that not everything is gonna be the way you think it oughta be..." Sam is touching her stomach tenderly. She seems to still be thinking her choice over...she looks very sad.
SONNY'S PENTHOUSE: "It seems like every time I try to make it right it all comes down on me. Please say, honestly you won't give up on me..." Sonny picks up the picture of his family and looks at it thoughtfully.
THE AIRPORT: "And I shall believe, I shall believe, I shall believe." Sam walks to the airline attendant and hands her her ticket. It looks like she is about to board the plane.
THE HAUNTED STAR: Luke unlocks the storage closet door, yelling to "Laura" to get to Beecher's Corner and wait there while he stalls the cops. The cops arrive and Luke tries to distract them by getting into a fight with them. By the time the cops go back to check the closet, it's empty -- the mysterious woman has had time to escape. Skye runs out onto the deck and the cops inform her that the suspect is missing. Luke admits unapologetically that he let her go.
THE CELLAR: Courtney and Jax are discussing their fund raiser. Jax wants people at the event to be able to get up and dance, but Courtney thinks that they should get guest speakers and play informational videos. Jax thinks that that sounds boring. Courtney insists that they are supposed to educate people. Jax, on the other hand, believes that they need to distract people with fun so that they don't realize how much they are opening their wallets. Jax asks Courtney to dance with him, explaining that if they dance she'll see what he means by needing to set the mood at the fund raiser. Courtney hesitantly agrees, "in the name of research" and allows Jax to take her into his arms. As they dance to the slow song that's playing, Jason walks in and sees them. Courtney sees Jason and pulls away from Jax, looking guilty.
SONNY'S PENTHOUSE: Carly comes back to the penthouse and tells Sonny happily that she has gotten the Cellar back from Faith. Sonny says he is happy for her but appears to be distracted. She asks him what has happened and just as he starts to explain, Sam walks in and immediately announces that she is glad that they are both hear as she needs to tell them something: Jason is the father of her baby.
