At the hospital, Alexis is at Samís bedside. She tells Sam that she wants her to get better so they can spend time getting to know each other. She is distracted by Jason pacing back and forth and tells him that he looks like heís waiting for something. He tells her that there is an operation that could save Samís life, but it needs to happen ASAP.
Patrick comes out of the elevator and walks over to Liz. She hands Patrick the test results on Sam. Noah walks over to Patrick and tells him that if he operates on Sam, it will kill her.
Back on the Island, everyone is eating food that Robin cooked. She gets compliments on the food and tells them that it was a snake Ė to which Dillon starts chocking on the food. Robin tells them that after breakfast, Luke, Robert and Holly need to turn themselves in.
At the Quartermaine Mansion, Lorenzo walks over to Skye. He tells her that he made a reservation for them to go eat. She tells him that he might consider writing some thank you notes first. She walks outside and Lorenzo follows to see a yard full of baby furniture. Lorenzo tells her that he didnít buy any of the furniture and Skye shows him the card; saying that it is from the Escobar family as a tribute to the new boss.
Alexis and Jason argue over whether or not Sam should have the surgery. Alexis says itís too dangerous, but Jason tells her that they should be trying to help her. Alexis wants to wait it out. Alexis questions where the information about the operation came from and Jason tells her that it came from Liz.
Emily is pleased with the roses and thinks that itís romantic, but shocked at such a gesture from Sonny. She asks what the occasion is. Sonny says he just wanted to surprise her and not be predictable.
Noah and Patrick argue over what is best for Sam. Noah finds out that Liz called Patrick back to the hospital and tells her that she overstepped on that one because Samís condition is inoperable. Liz defends herself and Patrick by telling Noah that before making that decision, Patrick should be allowed to examine her first. Noah reams Patrick, telling him that Patrick just wants to do the surgery to redeem himself for losing a patient on the operating table last week. He tells Patrick that if he operates, Sam will die on the table as well. A mortified Alexis looks on.
On the Island, Lulu disagrees that they shouldnít turn them into the authorities. Robin rationalizes that they have no reason to be on the run Ė they can clear this up. Luke and Robert disagree with that idea. Lulu thinks itís a bad idea. Luke tells them that they should just go back to Port Charles because they are making it worse for them. Lulu runs down the list of things that they used to do when they went on their adventures and implies that they are too old to do that still.
Emily and Sonny are outside, eating breakfast. Sonny tells Emily that he made breakfast for her because she spent the entire night at the hospital and probably didnít have enough to eat.

Sonny expresses a desire to help Jason and tells Emily that this is why he wanted to do these things for Emily Ė he realizes life is too short. They kiss. Max comes outside with more roses.
At Samís hospital room, Jason is sitting at her bedside. Liz walks in to change the IVs. Jason asks if Patrick is here. She tells him yes, he is ready to operate, but Noah is halfway to convincing Alexis that the surgery is a mistake. Jason asks her if she thinks the surgery will work and Liz assures Jason of Patrickís abilities. Jason asks her if she would let him operate if it was up to her and she says yes.
Noah and Alexis are discussing Samís condition. Alexis wants to know about Samís odds. Noah tells her that with medication, they are slim, but with surgery it will be fatal. Alexis wants to know why. Noah gives her the low down on her condition, but Patrick walks in and tells him that his opinion is just that Ė an opinion. Noah says that surgery on Sam would be reckless. Jason walks in and asks him how does he know that when he hasnít let Patrick examine Sam yet.
Luke and Robert ask what they are implying. They tell them they are too old for these types of adventures. Luke shoots back at Lulu and she tells him to go to hell. Holly gets mad at Luke for yelling at Lulu that way. Robert looks up at Robin and tells her not to start with him. Holly walks outside and goes to talk to Lulu. She tells him sheís right, but sheís not as old as the men. Lulu is upset because her efforts got her father mad at her, and heíll never admit that sheís right. Holly gives Lulu advice on men and tells them that she needs to lie and never imply they are old or weak.
At the hospital, Sonny walks out of the elevator and over to Monica. She stops Sonny from going to see Jason or Sam. Sonny asks how Sam is doing and she tells him that Sam is in critical condition and the surgery could either kill her or save her life. Sonny wants to know if there is anything that he can do and Monica tells him he canít buy his way out of this one Ė unless of course by helping he means giving up Emily. Sonny defends his relationship with Emily and asks Monica why she would deny her daughter happiness. She says because life is short and people die around him. She doesnít want Emily to be one of them.
Skye tells Lorenzo that sending back the gifts is a sign of disrespect. Lorenzo assures Skye that returning the furniture wonít put them in any type of danger. Skye and Lorenzo discuss his role in the business. Lorenzo assures Skye that his top priority is Skye and their baby. Georgie walks in on all the baby furniture and is shocked by it all. Georgie tells Skye she needs to have a girl talk with her. She tells Skye about her senior prom and asks her to borrow shoes. Skye is surprised because she wasnít aware that Dillon was back. Georgie stuns Skye by Diego telling her that heís not Ė sheís going with him instead. She wants to know why sheís going with someone other than her husband.
Jason is walking over to the elevator and sees Sonny. He asks if sheís okay and he says no. Sonny asks if itís about Sam and he says sheís alive Ė for now. He tells Sonny about the two doctor opinions and that heís the one who has to decide and if heís wrong Sam will die.

Alexis tells him that since he told him about her being Samís mother, she wants a say in what happens to Sam.
