Robin replies that sometimes friends have to take a stand. Jason understands that when she told AJ the truth she made the only choice she could...but he doesn't feel the same way.

Luke tells Lulu that Laura is well cared for here. Lulu admits that part of her was hoping that she could come visit Laura and Laura would recognize her and smile -- and the other part of her is scared that she'll accidentally do something to upset Laura and make her freak out.

Ric takes over questioning and asks Jason about when he used to be "Jason Quartermaine" before the car accident that left him brain-damaged. Ric wants to know what made Jason change his last name from Quartermaine to Morgan -- was it because he thought of himself as a different person entirely after the accident?

When he realized he was more miserable the more he didn't see her, he decided that it was better to visit. Luke tells Lulu that she has memories of Laura the way she used to be -- brave and wonderful -- the woman he himself fell in love with at first sight. Luke talks about Spencer family history, about how he and Laura spent time in an old farm house in Beecher's Corners, and because Laura was married to another man at the time, she made Luke hang a blanket between their beds and told Luke that while she did want him as much as he wanted her, he had to stay on her side of the blanket. Lulu asks how long that lasted, and Luke replied that it went on for two weeks. By that time they had fallen in love and the blanket between their beds finally came down. Lulu asks him what changed, why Laura went crazy? Luke says it was all his fault.

THE HOSPITAL: Patrick as at the nurse's station -- the nurse tells him that Carly Corinthos is on the phone for him. Patrick takes the call and Carly asks him to come over right away because she needs his help. Patrick asks if this is a "true emergency" -- he is under the impression she wants him to come over for sex. Carly says she can't describe the problem on the phone, he just needs to come to her house and see for himself. Patrick asks if it can wait until tomorrow and she says it can't. She gives him her address and he tells her he'll be right over. Patrick tells the nurse next to him to call Dr. Lee and cancel his dinner for tonight because he has an urgent house call. The nurse says "I'll bet," and he leaves. Robin comes over and asks the nurse where Patrick is going. The nurse says he is going to Carly Corinthos' house.
JASON AND SAM'S PENTHOUSE: Justus tells Jason that he handled the deposition well. Jason thanks him and Justus leaves. Ric quips that he and Alexis are going to take Sonny's deposition next, so Jason should call him to make sure he has time to come up with answers as clever as Jason's were. Alexis warns Jason that his strategy is not going to work, that when they put him on the stand he will have to give real answers to the questions they ask or else she will be put in a position where she will have to charge Sam with perjury. Alexis and Ric leave.
GREYSTONE: Sonny is home and Emily is there waiting for him. He tells her that Michael is fine -- he thanks her for saving his life. Emily is just happy that she was there...she notes that she wasn't paralyzed by self-doubt about her ability to make medical decisions -- she just jumped in and did what she had to do. Sonny tries to help her warm up -- they both become aware of how close they are standing, that their faces are almost touching. There's an awkward tension in the room.
CARLY'S HOUSE: Patrick has arrived, but he is surprised to find that Carly asked him over, not for sex, but to look at her sick son Michael. She explains that she didn't want to call Michael's pediatrician because since she just got out of Rose Lawn she's worried that people might "misinterpret" Michael's accident. She tells Patrick that Michael fell in the a frozen lake after sneaking out of the house without her permission, now she's worried that if too many people find out they will think she's a bad mother. Patrick notes that Carly could have called her mother Bobbie (a nurse) but she replies that if she called Bobbie at the hospital, someone would have found out -- namely Robin. Carly sure Robin would just call children's services on her. Patrick agrees to look at Michael. Carly leads him upstairs.
A DINER: Luke tells Lulu that her mother was so strong and brave, but she was also very emotional. He believed she'd pull through the tragedies in her life that had always haunted her. He didn't realize how fragile she had become. That's why he blames himself for the state she's in now. Lulu notes that he did do his best. She asks him if it's true that she looks like Laura -- people tell her that but she's never sure she believes him. Luke replies that everytime he looks at her, he sees Laura -- Lulu has her looks, brain and spirit. Lulu wonders if she has Laura's mental illness, too...because sometimes she gets so angry she lashes out and does things without thinking. She's worried one day she might go crazy, too. Luke reassures her, saying that Lulu has something that Laura didn't have -- a toughness, an edge, cockiness that comes with being a Spencer. Luke thinks if Laura had that attitude, it might have saved her. Lulu knows what he means.
JASON AND SAM'S PENTHOUSE: Sam doesn't want Alexis to even think about using her against Jason. Jason defends Sam, who asks to speak to Alexis alone for a moment. Jason agrees. Alexis tells Sam that Jason has given her cause to discredit Sam on the stand. Sam thinks Alexis is willing to do anything to set her clint free. Alexis asks Sam to convince Jason to tell the full and honest truth on the stand.
Out in the hallway, Jason is waiting with Ric for Alexis and Sam to finish talking. Ric warns Jason not to mess this up in court, and Jason replies that if Ric doesn't make Alexis back off of Sam, he'll back her off himself.
CARLY'S HOUSE: Patrick is checking on Michael, who remembers him from when he did the surgery on Jason. Patrick tells Michael that he saved Jason's life because he is the best neurosurgeon in the northeast. Carly asks if the spotlight could please be put back on Michael. Patrick tells her that Michael will be fine and his arm probably just fell asleep earlier, explaining why it was numb. He talks to Michael about how it was scary for him to fall in the pond. The doorbell rings and Carly goes downstairs to get it as Patrick warns Michael to stay off of thin ice because you can never tell when it's going to crack.
Downstairs, Carly is surprised to see Robin at the door. Robin has come by to see if they can make some kind of peace between them after all that has happened in the past. Carly is hostile toward Robin, telling her to just go back to Paris. She doesn't understand why Robin chose this night in particular to come by. Patrick suddenly joins her at the door. Carly tells Robin to hurry up because she is "pretty busy" (insinuating she is busy with Patrick). Robin looks at Patrick and asks, "So you two are --?" and Carly replies, "Uh, yeah, damn straight we are."
GREYSTONE: Sonny offers Emily some brandy to help her warm up. She agrees. He tells her how grateful he is that she was there to save Michael. They get close to one another and suddenly, they kiss.
