he is trying to see her point of view, but he is wealthy and the child will be

At General Hospital, Nikolas tells Elizabeth that he is not trying to bully her to get his way, but she must know that the child will notice the lifestyle difference when he comes to Nikolasís house. She says she thinks she can give the child a happy home. He tells her that his point is that if she doesnít take child support from him, then the child will have opportunities that Cameron and Jake wonít have. He tells her to think about how it has affected him and Lucky. She says that goes beyond money. She tells him that she wonít allow her children to be pulled into a Spencer-Cassadine feud. He tells her that part of that feud is about class. She tells him that she will raise all of her children with enough love that they can see past any differences they might have. He tells her that he is just asking that she think about accepting child support.
At the Metro Court, Carly tells Edward that she just hired Brook Lynn to sing in the restaurant and that she will have a room at the hotel until she finds a place to live. Edward says Quartermaines take care of their own and that Carly has enough to deal with, with Michael being dragged off to jail. He says that is a travesty of justice. Carly tells him that Michael is ok and that Jason is in there with him. Edward asks her to tell Michael to doing everything he can have the sentence overturned. Edward tells Brook Lynn that she doesn't have to get a job. He says he knows her trust fund is still frozen but he's willing to give her a generous allowance. She asks him if he could also float her a loan. He tells her to name the amount and takes out his checkbook. He says that of course, the release of the funds is contingent upon her moving into the estate and enrolling in the university full-time. She asks if he's saying he wants to go back to school. He says she has to finish her education and he wishes she would major in business, but communications would be acceptable. Carly says she thinks four years of classes, textbooks, and lab work sounds like a great idea. She tells Brook that if she moves to the mansion her Grandma Tracy can fuss over her. Brook Lynn tells Edward that she's an artist and art is about sacrifice so she will just have to slum it at the Metro court for her food. He asks her if she will at least come visit them at the estate. She promises that she will. He tells her that his offer is still on the table if she changes her mind.

Maxie says he and Brook Lynn may have run through fire hydrants on hot days or shared hot dog carts but that doesn't mean he knows her. She says she thinks Brook Lynn is trouble. Dante says Maxie can trust Brook. Lulu says she is with Dante on this. Maxie feigns surprise. Lulu says Brook wasnít in town during the Michael drama and she thinks it is nice to have someone around that wonít avoid Dante because of it. Dante says that is a pretty small group.
At Alexisí Lake house, Johnny tells Kristina that he saw her in the back of the courtroom the day that he testified against Sonny. He says he regrets that what he said upset her. Kristina asks him if he lied because her dad told her that he never hit any woman. Johnny says he never had any proof that Sonny actually hit Claudia; he never saw it happen and Claudia never told him about it, but he did see Sonny manhandle Claudia. He says he sometimes saw bruises on Claudiaís arms from Sonny grabbing her. He says Claudia flinched at Sonnyís words as if they were fists. He says words can be more damaging than physical abuse. He says Sonny constantly told Claudia that she was a whore and he told her every day that she was nothing. Johnny says that it is abuse when a person promises love, wins a personís trust, and then uses that personís vulnerability as a weapon against them. Kristina says Claudia did get Michael shot and she wasnít a nice person. Johnny says that doesnít make the way Sonny treated her ok. He explains that it is also abuse to make the victim feel that it is their fault. Johnny says the thing he dislikes about Sonny is that he portrays himself as a nice guy when he has caused a lot of damage to a lot of lives including her and Michael.

At Robin and Patrickís house, Robin wonders how Patrick can be upset about her
having the rare opportunity to set up an HIV/AIDS clinic. He says her life is
here, not in Africa. She protests that it is only for three weeks. He says that
it isnít so much that she is going, but that she didnít discuss it with him. He
asks her when he would have found out about it if he had been in surgery when
she called. She says she just got the offer today. He thinks she should have
consulted with him. She says that when she told him that she wanted to work in
the AIDS wing, he flipped out. She says it is as if he wants her to minimize her
HIV. He tells her not to dare accuse him of being some kind of bigot or suggest
that he is ashamed of her. He says he doesnít minimize her HIV; she doesnít talk
to him about it. She says he isnít open to it. He says he is right there and
asks her to tell him everything and help him understand. She says she has told
him many times before and for some reason he canít understand. She says she
doesnít have time to tell him the stories now because she has to go. He says she
is shutting him out again the way she always does. She demands to know what he
wants from her. He says he wants everything, the hard parts and the good parts
and short of that he wants to be asked when she wants to make a life-changing
decision. She tells him that she is doing this and she is sorry if it hurts him.
Patrick asks her if she thinks it is fair for her to walk out on Emma again.

Steve and Lisa walk into the triage area at General Hospital discussing a patient. Steve receives an email on his PDA from an old high school friend.

A nurse comes up to Steve and tells him that the Union Rep couldnít stay and that she said Steve would have to reschedule. Steve says he is only 5 minutes late. Lisa apologizes for keeping Steve. She says Steve would have made the meeting if Patrick hadnít left to go home to Robin.
At Robin and Patrickís house, Robin asks Patrick if he really wants to accuse her of neglecting Emma. Patrick tells her that it wasnít her fault the last time but this time, she doesnít have an excuse. She says Post Partum Depression wasnít an excuse; she was sick. She tells him that if she canít have his compassion as her husband, she would at least expect it as a doctor. He tells her not to do that and reminds her that he stood by her throughout the whole thing. He asks her why she had a family if she wanted to dedicate her life to her late boyfriend and trot around the world saving people. She says she thought her husband would support her. He says she doesnít need to go to Africa to get his support; there are people here that need her help. He tells her that she always says he is restless and that she and Emma arenít enough. He wonders why he and Emma arenít enough for him. She protests that it is just one trip. He says there will be another one. He asks her what happens when a trip lasts three months or three years. He tells her he knows where this is coming from. He says Stone is dead and she is alive and she canít pretend to live the life that he couldnít. She says she is a doctor; she helps people. He tells her that she can wrap it in noble intentions, but the fact is that she is afraid to be happy. He tells her that no matter what he does, Robin she keeps pushing him and Emma away. She tells him that he just said he wanted to talk about it and then the second she opens up his petty jealousy gets in the way. He asks her who he is jealous of. She says he is jealous of a boy that died of AIDS. He says he guesses that make him unworthy of the perfect little her. She says she guesses it does. She grabs her purse and storms out the door.
At Alexisís lake house, Kristina thanks Johnny for coming. He says he hopes he was able to shed some light on Claudia and Sonny. Kristina says she apologized to him for causing Claudia to lose her baby. Johnny tells her that was an accident. Kristina says it may be the reason Claudia did some of the things she did. Johnny says Claudia was no saint; she orchestrated Michaelís shooting and that cost him a year of his life. He admits that one day she made him so angry that he raised a hand to Claudia. Kristina asks him if he hit Claudia. He says no, you donít hit the people you love or the people who love you.
