JASON'S HOSPITAL ROOM: Robin comes into the room and finds Jason trying to leave his bed. He tells her he wants to stop Carly and Sam from begging Patrick to do the operation. Robin says that he should let them do what they have to do because the only important thing now is getting Patrick to save his life.

Alexis wants him to think more carefully about what he's doing because of the fact that he and Courtney bring so much baggage to their new relationship.

Emily, thinking he's talking about their relationship, is stunned. Sonny elaborates and says he can't stop thinking about the danger Jason is in. Emily is relieved, but can't stop herself from blurting out that she knows he hasn't been sleeping lately because she can see into his bedroom window from hers.
THE HOSPITAL: Patrick is preparing for Jason's surgery when Noah comes over to him. Noah tries to give his son some advice, but Patrick brushes him off and alludes to the fact that Noah hasn't operated on anyone since he became an alcoholic.

Carly doesn't want him to talk like this, she knows he will survive the surgery. They talk about the first time they met at Jake's bar.

Lainey warns Justus that if this goes wrong and she gets sued, he will have to defend her.
Meanwhile, Patrick and Robin are still arguing over Patrick's refusal to allow her in the operating room on the grounds that she is emotionally invested in Jason and would not be objective during the surgery.

Courtney admits that she herself has been feeling guilty that she doesn't deserve the good life she has now.
