General Hospital (1963– )
Helena Cassadine: They don't keep people like us in hell, dear, we'd end up running the place.
Elizabeth Webber: Jason, I'm not gonna lie and say I don't care for you. I just hope you wouldn't have to lie to me and say you feel the same way.
Alice: That woman should be beaten with a curling iron.
Dillon Quartermaine: If you're talking about my Mom, I know the feeling.
Alice: Well, I don't blame you there, but I'm talking about the new Mrs. Quartermaine.
[Liz and Jason looking out on the docks]
Jason Morgan: Don't you wish it could always be like this. No guns, no killing, no explosions, just... this.
Sonny Corinthos: You've always loved me, more than I could understand. You need to pray for me, Lily. Can you ask God? Can you ask God to help me? I can not watch Carly die the way I watched you.
Sonny Corinthos: I'll find you a place, set you up. I'll make sure you're safe.
Samantha McCall: You're kidding me, right?
Sonny Corinthos: Not at all. I'll get you - I'll get you some money, you know, a car, a driver, if that's what you need, and I'll come visit you as often as I can.
Samantha McCall: I'm not your wife, and I am sure as hell not your whore.
Samantha McCall: You don't want to kill me.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, you've left me no choice. You see, death is what happens to overly confident little girls who intrude where they don't belong.
Samantha McCall: Well, get prepared, because I am not going to go down without taking pieces of you with me.
Jason Morgan: You're looking at this like it's the beginning of something. It's not.
Samantha McCall: Oh, is that a threat?
Jason Morgan: It's a statement of fact. Sonny's life is complicated. As long as you're with him your life will be, too.
Samantha McCall: Oh, it'll take a hell of a lot more than complications to scare me off.
Jason Morgan: Sonny's only sleeping with you to punish Carly.
Michael Corinthos: I'm not a baby like Morgan. I know something really bad is going on here. Tell me. I can handle it.
Jason Morgan: I know you can. I know, I know you're a strong little guy and you can take care of - take care of things, but - it's just - Michael. It's not my place to tell you. It's something your parents are going to have to do when they decide the time is right.
Michael Corinthos: What should I do till then?
Jason Morgan: Um, well, just remember that life is gonna change a little bit. Here, sit up there, OK? You know, sometimes people choose things that make everything different from what it was. People aren't perfect. Sometimes they make mistakes, sometimes they get angry. But you still love them. Because if they're yours, they matter more than anything.
Ric Lansing: Ms. Cassadine, I know you're not stupid. You know you're only hope is to let her go.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, hope? hope is overrated.
Jason Morgan: You should go home. You should rest.
Samantha McCall: How am I supposed to rest if I'm worried about you?
Samantha McCall: I don't want to fight with you, Carly.
Carly Corinthos: Too late, I asked you a question. How long have you been sleeping with my husband?
Samantha McCall: Your husband made it very clear to me that his marriage to you was over.
Carly Corinthos: Oh, did he also make it very clear to you that when he takes you to bed, you are just standing in for someone else?
Faith Rosco: We don't have much time to get out of here.
Justice Ward: You know what, Faith? You've been stabbed twice. You're in no condition to go anywhere but to the hospital.
Faith Rosco: So I'm in pain. That's not going to stop my legs from working. If we wait any longer, I will never get out of here. If the killer doesn't get me, the Quartermaines are going to stone me to death.
Justice Ward: You know what? You're right. They're not the most compassionate group.
Faith Rosco: You think?
Justice Ward: You know, I hate the way the Quartermaines treat other people, especially each other. They're like a pack of wolves waiting to tear each other to shreds. I don't know why I wanted to be a part of this family.
Faith Rosco: Everybody wants to belong somewhere.
Dillon Quartermaine: It's getting hotter.
Georgie Jones: Even the floor feels like it's burning!
Dillon Quartermaine: OK, OK, OK, OK, OK. That explosion came from below us, right? So I'm sure - I'll bet anything the stairwells are blocked.
Travis: So we're trapped? Great, man, that's just great!
Georgie Jones: Tom, it's OK.
Travis: I'm out of here. I'm going to use the elevator because it's a lot better than getting deep-fired!
Dillon Quartermaine: Wait a second, wait a second, dude.
Travis: Get out of my way.
Dillon Quartermaine: I'm not letting you leave. We stick together, all right? There's no smoke in here. They can still come and get us.
Travis: Look, Dillon, I get that you're a good guy but...
Dillon Quartermaine: Tom, Dude, the elevators are shut down! Even if you found an open stairwell, it's going to be filled up with smoke and that's going to kill you a lot faster than the fire will.
Georgie Jones: Hey, he's right.
Travis: Oh, so we just wait?
Dillon Quartermaine: No, we be smart. We stay alive as long as we can.
Faith Rosco: If the princess doesn't want to leave, we'll go without her. Enjoy the blaze!
Luke Spencer: Skye, you can't just sit here and wait for the - wait for the room to go up in flames.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Well, it hasn't reached us yet. And, look, we have water, you know, and I heard the fire engines down stairs. We should wait here until we get evacuated.
Luke Spencer: We've got to go up or down now.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: No, I'm telling you, it is too risky!
Luke Spencer: If the explosions have caused the stairwells to be blocked, then they're going to be putting people on choppers from the roof.
Faith Rosco: Oh, hello! Less chat, more running for cover!
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Luke, come on, you already passed out once!
Luke Spencer: Yeah, and your first-aid techniques have made me a stronger, better man.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, come on, Luke!
Luke Spencer: Skye! The fire is moving through the walls! This room could go up in flames in five minutes!
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Well, you know, it hasn't reached us yet, OK?
Luke Spencer: Darling, I am not a white knight.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Yeah, well, this isn't a test, OK? I'm not waiting for you to rescue me.
Luke Spencer: Well, then come with me!
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: No way, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I'm staying.
Faith Rosco: Great, super. Let's go, my nail polish is melting!
Helena Cassadine: [to Felicia] Discussing strategy with you would be like playing chess with a sugar bowl.
Sonny Corinthos: Alexis, you're scared. I'm scared. But Sam has a right to protect her child.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Since when you care about anybody's rights but your own? Make her! You can make her! You can pressure her into inducing labor! You can do it, or you can get Jason to do it! If all of the sudden, at the last minute you have suddenly developed a conscience...
Sonny Corinthos: You want me to bully a pregnant woman?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I want my baby to live! I do! I don't mean to beg you and ask you to ask another woman to risk her baby for mine. But if the situation were reversed, If Kristina were drowning, Sam would - would save her, she would. She wouldn't stop to think about what it would do to her baby. She'd dive in and pull her out. That's all she needs to do. She just has to dive in and pull my baby out! If she doesn't do it, she's going to die. Sonny, please.
Sonny Corinthos: Now, listen to me, OK? Sam made the best decision she could for her child's life. I can't - I can't fight her on that. I can't. We will find another way to save Kristina. I promise you.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Don't lie to yourself. If she doesn't get those stem-cells, she going to die.
Tracy Quartermaine: Let me make this perfectly clear - I find you hideous on every conceivable leave. I have wanted you gone from the very first moment you slithered into my mother's rose garden. Why would I help you?
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: Because we want the same thing Tracy - Money.
Tracy Quartermaine: You don't have any. And your husband is working for small change.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: But I have other plans for Edward and his estate. If you help me, I'll give you half his fortune.
Steven Lars Webber: So, I spoke to your doctors in Manhattan, transferred over your medical records, and - I mean, you know, obviously, they're going to be fine doing your operation.
John Durant: Oh, thanks. Not that I don't love it here in Port Charles. I'd just feel a little safer with my own people.
Steven Lars Webber: I totally understand completely and have you told Carly?
John Durant: She's coming with me.
Steven Lars Webber: What? How did you manage that?
John Durant: Honestly, it was her own decision. I couldn't talk her out of it.
Steven Lars Webber: Wow, she's really start to care about you.
John Durant: It's hard to believe. But I think you might be right. I just hope that feeling doesn't vanish when I put her husband behind bars.
Courtney Matthews: There's nothing cool about being a criminal, Diego.
Diego: No - There's nothing cool about being a busboy. Your ex is my only way out of this dead-end life.
Courtney Matthews: Well, I'm not going to let it happen.
Diego: You can't stop me.
Diego: I don't believe this. Jason's supposed to be this big, bad mob enforcer and he lets Alcazar step all over him. He didn't do anything!
Courtney Matthews: Really? Why are you disappointed, Diego? Huh? Why? Did you want to see a fight? Did you want to see a shooting? Let me tell you, I've been in more than a few and they are terrifying.
Diego: Yeah, well, I guess Jason thinks so, too. He's such a coward! He's a joke is what he is.
Courtney Matthews: OK, no, now, listen - I may not agree with a lot of the choices Jason makes, but he is not a coward.
Carly Corinthos: You know that I wish you had never spoken to me in that evaluator? You told me the one thing that I never really needed to know and I have dreaded this day ever since.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: So have I.
Carly Corinthos: I could have told Sonny. I could have told him right after the fire. I could have told him so many other times when I thought he would understand, but I didn't. I didn't because of you. Because you begged me. You bullied me, you threatened me. And maybe somehow I thought it could stay a secret. Hey, I should have known better. God, I should have known better. I'm telling Sonny. He needs to know he's Kristina's father.
Carly Corinthos: He is going to do everything he can to help that little girl.
Ric Lansing: The only thing I am concerned with is the welfare of that child. Custody issues can wait.
Carly Corinthos: Oh, I get it. I see. So Sonny's going to be allowed to help save Kristina's life, but There's no way you're going to let him be anywhere near her?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Can we not talk about this now? Can we just - just try to be reasonable?
Carly Corinthos: Reasonable, right. Right, reasonable is Alexis-speak for do it my way or else. You thought it was reasonable to deceive Sonny, and then I had to be reasonable and keep your little secret. Well, your little secret is out Alexis. You do not get to decide what's reasonable anymore.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I'm hoping that you will find it in your heart to help me. If the time comes, you can help Sonny understand that - that my daughter belongs with me.
Carly Corinthos: OK, Alexis, you don't get it. Will you listen to yourself? The lies are over, sky's falling, and we're all going to have to deal with it.
Carly Corinthos: Michael, turn around and take that suitcase back upstairs.
Michael Corinthos: No.
Carly Corinthos: Michael, your father and I have talked to you about this already. Running away is not a solution.
Michael Corinthos: I'm not going anywhere. You are.
Carly Corinthos: I know you are upset, but you have no right to order me out of this house.
Michael Corinthos: Me and Morgan are staying here with dad. It's your fault that you're getting a divorce, so you leave.
Sonny Corinthos: The doctors they think that this is Kristina's best chance, maybe her only one.
Samantha McCall: You know, Sonny, as soon as the baby is born, Kristina is more than welcome to the stem cells. But I cannot induce this labor. It is just too big of a risk to our daughter.
Sonny Corinthos: I respect your decision. We'll find another way to help Kristina.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I want you to come with me.
Samantha McCall: No, I don't understand. Please don't.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I want you to see her. I want you to see Kristina.
Samantha McCall: Alexis, I understand how sick she is.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I want you to see her lying in her bed. I want you to see how pale she is. I want you to see that her chest is barely moving. I want you to see that she's dying and that you can save her but you won't.
Samantha McCall: Don't say that. Please don't talk...
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Please don't make you see what you're doing? Because you're letting her die. You're going to let her heart stop beating, you're going to let her slip way, and you're going to stand there and you're going to do nothing. Where's you're compassion? For God's sake. Where's your humanity? How are you going to be able to live with yourself knowing that you could have saved her life and you didn't? I want you to look at her because I can't make you induce labor, but I can by God make you see the price of your selfishness because it's easy to ignore death when it's not staring you in the face. When it's down the hall in some corridor, when it's someone else's child. I want you to look at my daughter!
Samantha McCall: OK, I will do it!
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I want you to see what you've done! If she dies it's on your head!
Samantha McCall: I will induce my labor for you! OK?
Ric Lansing: I heard there was a problem with Sam?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: She's in surgery, both she and her baby are at risk.
Ric Lansing: What happened?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I'm not even sure.
Ric Lansing: Were you with her?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I went to the Chapel to ask her, to beg her to reconsider. I told her that she was Kristina's only hope, and then I pleaded with her to give the stem cells. Mother to mother.
Ric Lansing: What did she say?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: She said she couldn't do it, and I got so upset. I don't know what I did. I just pushed her. I pushed her and pushed her. And then - then she agreed and then she fell down in pain.
Ric Lansing: What if Sam's baby dies? Can she still save Kristina?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Any word yet on Sam's baby?
Ric Lansing: They had to perform an emergency c-section. The baby didn't survive.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Oh, my God.
Ric Lansing: Look, I know that Sonny's gong through hell right now. I now he would ever tell me that. Alexis, I spoke with Dr. Webber and he told me that you didn't cause any of it. He also told me that the stem cells would still be viable even if Sam's baby dies.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: How do I bring myself to ask her?
Ric Lansing: I know, I know. Look, she's not going to be able to make an informed decision at this point. So you are going to have to be the one to ask for Sonny's permission.
Carly Corinthos: I want you to know something, though. No matter what happens, your dad and I - we love you and Morgan. No matter where we live.
Michael Corinthos: I love you, too. I just don't want things to, you know, change.
Carly Corinthos: Sweetie, this is a sad but true fact of life here, ok? Change - it's the only thing that you can count on, and it happens, even when we don't want it to.
Carly Corinthos: Sonny, I'm not angry at you. I'm not doing this for payback. I cannot live in limbo. I can't. And I'm trying to do what is best for everyone, and that - that's why I'm leaving.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You convinced me to need you, and I do. So you don't back out on me now.
Ric Lansing: I'm not going anywhere.
Emily Quartermaine: I'm not leaving Lucky.
Connor Bishop: You're big on loyalty, ain't ya?
Emily Quartermaine: Yeah, something you wouldn't understand.
Connor Bishop: Hey, everything I have done has been out of loyalty to Mary. Don't tell me that.
Emily Quartermaine: So that's your excuse for lying, cheating, breaking the law?
Connor Bishop: Quit stalling, would you? I'm getting out of here and you're going to help me.
Emily Quartermaine: Well, sorry, you can't sneak up on me in the bathtub and kidnap me this time, so it looks like you're on your own!
Connor Bishop: How far do you think you can push me? Hmm?
Emily Quartermaine: I don't care what you do. I won't help you. You'll have to shoot me first.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: You scare me, Lorenzo. And not in the violent sense. I'm scared of you - your heart, the look in your eyes, and the way I'm starting to feel.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Look, if I was a good person, I would ask you to leave. I'd freeze you out. You'd be a lot safer that way. And I'm sure, happier in the end. But I think it's obvious by now I'm not a very good person.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: My daughter would kill me for being here. She's right. You're dangerous. And I could end up getting killed in the crossfire.
Lorenzo Alcazar: That's true.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: At the very least, I'll probably end up with a broken heart. But, I can't seem to stop myself. Because I want something with you.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Look, if you're frightened, you should run. You should listen to your instincts.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: I empathize with your pain, your loss. It was a magical wedding day you had with Laura.
Luke Spencer: You weren't there.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: I read about it in the papers. It mean, it was the event of the year. A perfect day, a beautiful ceremony. Laura, she looked like an angel. I couldn't help being a little jealous.
Luke Spencer: Why would you be jealous of Laura?
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: Oh, what girl doesn't dream of marrying her one true love in an autumn garden.
Luke Spencer: Well, dreams turn to nightmares everyday, Heather. Every day.
Luke Spencer: You deserve the best of me. Which ain't saying a hell of a lot.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Hey! That's good enough for me. And you know what? I am so glad that you're not perfect, because guess what - I'm not perfect, either.
Luke Spencer: I didn't know that.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, I love it when you lie.
Luke Spencer: Do you? You better be careful what you ask for. You know, lying is my strongest, most consistent personality trait.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: No, it's not. You know, you have been nothing but honest with me form the beginning - and sometimes brutally so - but I got to say that somewhere along the way. I learned that I could trust you. And believe me, that is not something that I do easily. I need you, Luke. I do.
Luke Spencer: Well, here's new - I need you, too.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: This Casino looks like a bingo hall.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: Where's your Holiday spirit?
Luke Spencer: As I recall, Blaze, last year you decorated, over my objections.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: I was throwing a Christmas party for the construction staff.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: Well, our paying guest certainly deserve the same attention. I want them to have fun here. But you're always so downbeat and miserable. You clearly don't know how to inspire any kind of revelry.
Luke Spencer: Where as Heather knows how to heat up any occasion.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: Glad you remember.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: He's going to be grieving for the rest of his life. What happened to him is awful. You never stop grieving for a lost child. There is no good time to do this. But it was to be done, because if you don't do it today, he will be in court tomorrow and he will lie and he will pay off a judge and get away with it like he always does, and Kristina will be living in his bulletproof castle. Just do it and get it over with.
Ric Lansing: I just want you to be sure.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I am sure that Sonny is dangerous. I am sure that I don't want my daughter to be a casualty, and I am sure that you can stop that from happening with the evidence that you have.
Ric Lansing: All right, on any other day, we wouldn't even be debating this, but Sonny just buried his child, and Kristina is alive because he allowed the doctors to give that baby's stem cells to Kristina.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You don't think I know that? You don't think that I would do anything not to have to do this to him? Almost anything, because I won't give up my daughter's safety.
Ric Lansing: Obviously, I don't want Kristina to suffer, either.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Then you know what you have to do, and you don't just do it for Kristina, you do it because that's your job. You're the D.A., and it's unethical to suppress evidence, even when it implicates your brother.
Carly Corinthos: Michael, listen to me. You're a big boy now, right, and sometimes when you're a big boy you have to put aside what you want to do what is best for the people that you love.
Tracy Quartermaine: What ever do you want? Make it fast.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Why, Aunt Tracy, is that anyway to talk to family?
Tracy Quartermaine: You know, the rest of the Quartermaine's may tolerate your fraudulent use of the family name. I, however, will not.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Well, blood ties or not I do happen to care about the Quartermaine's, and that includes Edward.
Tracy Quartermaine: Poor Daddy, practically checked himself into Shadybrook when he married Heather Webber.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: You helped Heather have him committed there. Something tells me you regret that.
Tracy Quartermaine: Something tells me you're drinking again.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Well, there won't be much of Edward's money left once Heather gets through with it. She just invested $2 million into the Haunted Star.
Tracy Quartermaine: She has no right to start spending my father's money.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Well, I agree. Heather's has even less of a standing in this family than I do. So why don't you set your sights on eliminating her?
Tracy Quartermaine: I tried. No one would listen.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Well, there's still time, Tracy. Get Edward out of Shadybrook, get him to see that this lovely bride is nothing but a moneygrubbing vulture.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: So will you help me save Edward?
Tracy Quartermaine: Doesn't mean that we're friends, right?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: I hate the sight of you, too.
Tracy Quartermaine: Fine. Let's go get my father.
Luke Spencer: There, See? If we keep working together. All our dreams will come true.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: All my dreams are very specific, Luke. You better rest up.
Luke Spencer: The important thing here is that we all get what we want.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: Well, in that case, Skye, just stay out of the way, Luke and I will greet the guest as they arrive.
Edward Quartermaine #3: The next person you will be greeting is my attorney.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: Oh, sweetheart, it's so good to see you.
Edward Quartermaine #3: Don't sweetheart me, you tarantula. You're finished spending my money.
Steven Lars Webber: Sonny has a lawyer, why don't you call him or her and just be done with.
Carly Corinthos: Oh, because in my opinion lawyers are really overrated.
Carly Corinthos: What?
Steven Lars Webber: I've worked with some very analytical minds, and very few of them are as fast as yours.
Carly Corinthos: I told you we're in a hurry.
Tracy Quartermaine: The game is over, my father knows everything.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: I don't know what you've been told, but I wasn't responsible for having you committed.
Tracy Quartermaine: You did everything but drive the van.
Luke Spencer: Edward, if I were you, I'd rethink that divorce thing.
Edward Quartermaine #3: Why, Luke, so you can reopen the club with the money Heather stole from me?
Luke Spencer: No, sir, because if you divorce that woman, you're going to be dead before the ink is dry.
Steven Lars Webber: Carly, what the hell are you doing in Ric Lansing's apartment?
Carly Corinthos: Did the file cabinet burn?
Steven Lars Webber: You set the fire? Your trying to burn the evidence that he's got on - Carly, are you out of your mind?
Carly Corinthos: Yeah, well, some people think so.
Steven Lars Webber: I'll go get the file.
Carly Corinthos: No, no, no, Steven! You let it burn!
Steven Lars Webber: No, that's a bad idea, Carly. And you can't be connected to this fire!
Carly Corinthos: Steven, it's too dangerous! Steven!
Connor Bishop: Why am I the bad guy when Nikolas just confessed to throwing an old lady off a cliff?
Lucky Spencer: Helena was a menacing witch who deserved what she got.
Connor Bishop: Do you think a jury will see it that way?
Lucky Spencer: And Nikolas is going to face charges, and he'll be exonerated. But you won't.
Connor Bishop: We'll see about that. Won't we?
Emily Quartermaine: You used my compassion against me and you pretended to have feelings for me, and every phony word was a calculated move for you to get revenge on Nikolas for something he didn't do!
Connor Bishop: He destroyed Mary and me!
Emily Quartermaine: No, Mary destroyed herself! Nikolas was a victim of her madness like everyone else. You know what? You are so desperate for someone to blame for Mary's death because you can't face the fact that you started it all.
Connor Bishop: I'd stop if I were you.
Emily Quartermaine: You know, you let Mary think that you were dead so that you could sneak home to her? You drove Mary crazy.
Connor Bishop: Shut up. Shut up.
Emily Quartermaine: And now the blood of those two innocent kids she killed is on your hands!
Connor Bishop: Shut up!
Sonny Corinthos: I had nothing to do with the fire, Ric.
Ric Lansing: Oh, the PCPD finally has ironclad evidence against you. It's locked up in my apartment. It goes up in smoke, and you're going to sit there and tell me it's a coincidence?
Samantha McCall: I thought she kicked.
Jason Morgan: You were dreaming.
Samantha McCall: I know. Just for a second, everything was like it was before. She was still with us and she was ok. Everything hurts so bad.
Jason Morgan: Just hold on to me.
Samantha McCall: Jason? When will the pain go away?
Jason Morgan: Never.
Samantha McCall: What's with the injured-wife routine? You betrayed your husband with another man, his worst enemy, if I've got my facts straight. Sonny's done with you, he's free. So am I. There is nothing left to say.
Carly Corinthos: OK, well, I wouldn't get all comfy and cozy with Sonny, if I were you. Has be bothered to mention Brenda yet? Because the two of you look enough alike to be sisters. Same height, same build, same dark hair. Although Brenda's was more stylish, but I'm sure that Sonny did not notice that difference in the dark.
Samantha McCall: Wow, you are some nasty little bitch.
Carly Corinthos: No, actually, I'm being pretty nice and I imagine that the resemblance to Brenda was also the hook for Jax.
Samantha McCall: OK, now you're stretching.
Carly Corinthos: You'll probably have more time with Sonny than you did Jax because Sonny is a practical man. Brenda's gone. So am I. You'll do for now, but don't think that you're in it for the long haul, because you will lose Sonny just the same way you lost out on Jax.
Samantha McCall: Oh, yeah? Why is that?
Carly Corinthos: Because you're not Brenda. No one is. Brenda the illusive ghost she is. She's incandescent. Oh, she unattainable and unforgettable and Sonny and Jax, they have her so high up on a pedestal, you cannot see her until she comes back down and is in your face. And let me tell you something else - she always comes back. Always. So, you may be sharing Sonny's bed right now, but just do yourself a favor and never forget that you are a substitute, and you always will be.
Elizabeth Webber: You know Jason, before this moment, I used to think that my dreams were better than reality... But being with you blows my dreams away.
Luke Spencer: You really freaked your mother out. Did it make you feel like a man?
Lucky Spencer: Did raping her make you feel like one?
Luke Spencer: I may be taller, but you're my hero.
Lucky Spencer: How much longer you think you can keep that taller thing going?
Mikkos Cassadine: On the contrary, my dear, the world as we known it is insane. I will bring order out of the existing chaos.
Ric Lansing: I need to call Elizabeth, Jason.
Jason Morgan: Forget it.
Ric Lansing: Look, she's my wife she thinks I'm dead.
Jason Morgan: You get the ride back, Ric, that's all.
Ric Lansing: You know what. I know that you hate me but there's no reason to make Elizabeth pay for what I've done.
Jason Morgan: You're right. It would have been better for Elizabeth if I let you die.
Courtney Matthews: Have you ever almost drowned, Sonny? I mean, you've been in water so cold that - that your arms are so - are so heavy you can't even lift them and it hurts to take a breath? I mean, when your body, it just - it goes numb. You know, and you - and you start choking on salt water, and you - you realize that - that you were wrong, that - that you're not going to make it, that you're not strong enough. And then, you know all the - all the life inside you, it just starts slipping away. And you think "I just - I should've waited. I should've trusted that the person that I love was going to come and save me instead of gambling with that life and losing. " That's what is haunting me.
Jason Morgan: Just tell me what you need.
Emily Quartermaine: I need to figure out how to die. That's what happening even though no one will come out and say it. And I don't know - I don't know how to make it ok for them. They're all so terrified and I have no idea how to help them.
Jason Morgan: Do - do you really - do you really think this is it?
Emily Quartermaine: Yes.
Jason Morgan: OK. Then the time that you have left is a gift.
Emily Quartermaine: A gift?
Jason Morgan: Yeah. You just have to use that time to say whatever you need to give the people you love a part of yourself to keep with them.
Emily Quartermaine: A part of myself?
Jason Morgan: Yeah, just a part of yourself.
Emily Quartermaine: I'm so scared. I am so scared Jason.
Jason Morgan: I know. I know you are.
Ric Lansing: I'm just doing what the people of this town paid me to do.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Then the people deserve a refund.
Jason Morgan: The first time I ever saw grief was when Sonny's wife Lily died. It made me understand that bad things happen fast but you live through them slow. Lily was gone in a flash. Her car exploded. But, Sonny fell apart for a long time after. He had to relearn how to do everything.
Faith Rosco: If you do this, you had better be sure it's what you want. Because if it isn't and you hurt me again, I will make you scream so loud the devil will cover his ears. And then I will kill you myself.
Faith Rosco: Oh my goodness. You're a regular calamity Jane, aren't you. Wow. Well, I'll give you this - you are a resilient little thing, but there's no way you're going to bounce back from this one. Ric is finally free. Well, you rest in peace little one. I hope you're busing tables in hell.
Faith Rosco: Who died and made you private detective? Anyway, why does it matter so much who hit the calamity waitress? We nursing a little crush here, Sonny?
Elizabeth Webber: Ric?
Ric Lansing: Can - Can you see me?
Elizabeth Webber: Uh, no.
Ric Lansing: Well, then how did you know it was me.
Elizabeth Webber: Who else would deliberately stand in the path of a blind person?
Carly Corinthos: You know, as we get closer to the baby's due date, you go further and further inside yourself. You're more angry, You're more tense and the nightmares they come every night and I wake up to you either fighting demons in your sleep or your downstairs here in the dark. You think you're alone in this, and that breaks my heart. I'm scared, too, Sonny. Yeah, I almost bled to death when Michael was born. And I need you more now than ever, and you're just pulling further and further away. You're right, Sonny. Bad things do happen, as we know. Yeah, you are right about that.
Faith Rosco: The five families are history. Their leaders are dead. So is Jason. I am in charge now. And this is your one chance to deal.
Faith Rosco: Jason was at the table with the five families when my men opened fire. I told them not to leave survivors. This is your last chance to work with me, Sonny. Let go.
Sonny Corinthos: Get out of here.
Faith Rosco: You are in no position...
Sonny Corinthos: Get out of here.
Faith Rosco: To give orders. The only reason I left you alive was because I have a soft spot for children, hmm? How could I leave your baby all alone in this world, hmm. Poor little tyke. His Mommy's brains are creamed corn. Uncle Jason has surely beled to death by now. Where does that leave Morgan, hmm? If I take away his Daddy, who till take care of the poor little orphaned boy?
Faith Rosco: The mighty Sonny Corinthos answer to no one, huh? Well, guess what you answer to me now. I run this territory you just retired. Because if you don't everyone you love will disappear. Your precious baby, your little carrot top, your spunky sister and what's left of your wife.
Sonny Corinthos: Your days are numbered.
Faith Rosco: Really, you lost, Sonny. You lost. Your enforcer is dead. And unless you show me a little respect, you will be, too.
Jason Morgan: So what do you want to do about Faith.
Sonny Corinthos: She thinks you're dead. She came to the chapel. She told me so herself. She wanted me to retire.
Jason Morgan: Well, it won't be the first time she's wrong.
Sonny Corinthos: It's going to be the last time, because I going to finish that bitch tonight.
Zander Smith: You need to leave.
Faith Rosco: Yeah, no brains, no service. He's right. You'll have to go.
Jason Morgan: Sonny tells me you hold the title to this place.
Faith Rosco: I do, indeed. I inherited it from my grandmother. So Carly is out of the picture. Not that she has enough brains left to understand that. Maybe Sonny will enjoy being married to a vegetable. He seems to clearly have a soft spot for mentally defective people.
Lucky Spencer: You think you're untouchable, don't you?
Faith Rosco: Oh, no, on the contrary. I love being touched. Yeah, not usually by cops, as a rule.
Courtney: I don't know how this got out of control so fast.
Faith Rosco: Because you attacked me. I want her arrested.
Brian: Courtney did nothing wrong.
Faith Rosco: She hit me.
Brian: You provoked her.
Faith Rosco: You were here you saw what happened I offered the little snit a job and she comes after me like a bunny out of hell. That's assault and if you don't take her in I'm going straight to ADA Lancing and I will have your badge.
Faith Rosco: I have to be honest. I just don't get it.
Carly Corinthos: Go away.
Faith Rosco: No, not until you explain the attraction. Now, Sonny and Alcazar are two of the most powerful men in the Northeast, and they're chasing around after a glorified piece of trailer trash. What is your secret?
Carly Corinthos: I won't tell you again.
Faith Rosco: Oh, come on, Carly, it's just us girls. Tell me, who do you dream about at the end of the day Sonny or Alcazar? Now, I know it's a tough decision. Yeah, they are both powerful, passionate men. Unfortunately for you, neither one learned to share. Otherwise maybe you could have both of them - you know, say, like alternating nights or three on a mattress. What is your private fantasy, Carly?
Faith Rosco: The truth hurts, doesn't it? You want Sonny for the main course and Alcazar on the site.
Carly Corinthos: I'm married to Sonny, Lorenzo means nothing to me.
Faith Rosco: Well, isn't there something in the scripture about lusting in the heart being just as bas as doing the deed?
Carly Corinthos: Don't quote the bible, Faith, you may burst into flames.
Faith Rosco: You're the one that's on fire, buttercup. Lorenzo Alcazar is under your skin, and he knows it. He's not going anywhere, and you don't want him to. Oh, and remember - if I can see it, Sonny will, too.
Courtney Matthews: I'm taking my nephew home.
Ric Lansing: No, no, no. I can't let you do that.
Courtney Matthews: Why not?
Ric Lansing: Well, legally, I can't release Michael in anybody's custody except his parents.
Courtney Matthews: Sonny's out of town and Carly's unavailable. She asked me to take care of her children, OK?
Ric Lansing: Did she sign a paper to that effect?
Courtney Matthews: I'm his aunt, and I'm taking him home.
Ric Lansing: Well, I'm his uncle. Why shouldn't I take him home?
Courtney Matthews: Do you want me to call a lawyer?
Ric Lansing: You can call whoever you want to, Courtney. But, legally, I have to turn him over to social services, if his parents can't be bothered to come down and pick him up.
Courtney Matthews: OK, you listen to me, you evil freak. I'm going to walk in that room and I'm going to speak to my nephew and if you try to stop me, I'm going to throw you across the room.
Ric Lansing: I have no doubt about that.
[Sam has just met Tracy]
Sam: Who are you, and what rock did you crawl out from under?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: I don't need a blueprint to know what went on here. Helena dangled the treasure in front of you, you took the bait, and she turned it to her advantage.
Samantha McCall: I have no idea what you're talking about, Jax. I just met this Helena person. I was in her company for all of five minutes.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: That's the scary part, Sam. You're so desperate for this treasure you've aligned yourself with a psychopath you know nothing about. Well, I know Helena. Now, you may lie and cheat with the best of them...
Samantha McCall: Oh, thank you, I appreciate that.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: But, Helena is the real thing. She actually enjoys killing people. It makes her feel younger.
Samantha McCall: Which has absolutely nothing to do with me.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: Right, right. Of course, because you didn't strike a deal with her.
Samantha McCall: That's right, I didn't.
Nikolas Cassidine: What are you doing here?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: I have some bad news. I thought I'd deliver it in person.
Emily Quartermaine: Sounds ominous.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: It is.
Nikolas Cassidine: Well, what is it?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: You were right about Sam. She hasn't given up pursuing the treasure. In fact, she's actively pursuing it with her new partner, Helena. That's right, Nikolas. Granny's back with a vengeance.
Courtney Matthews: I shot Brian in the back, Carly, and walked away. I didn't even check on him. What if he's dead?
Carly Corinthos: OK, you saved your husband's life tonight.
Courtney Matthews: OK, so that's how it works - kill or be killed? I just did the very thing that scares me the most about Jason.
Carly Corinthos: Didn't you shoot Coleman once?
Courtney Matthews: God, are you kidding me? that was self-defense. This was completely different. I wasn't corned, I wasn't being stalked. I didn't think, I just pulled the trigger.
Carly Corinthos: OK. OK. You listen to me. I shot Tony Jones once in open court trying to protect Michael. I went to the head of the five familles at a meeting with a baseball bat trying to take care of Sonny. We've all done dangerous things at times.
Courtney Matthews: Carly, Brian is a good person, and I shot him for doing his job. Jason's right, you know? Once your in this life you can't ever walk away.
Nikolas Cassidine: Emily, the money will never replace our love for each other.
Helena Cassadine: Who on earth told you that?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Here to savor your victory?
Tracy Quartermaine: You bet I am. I swore I'd get you out of my family, and now I have.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: You have hated me for so long, Tracy. What wasted energy, because each time you lash out at someone you lose them. I find it so ironic that I don't have a drop of Quartermaine blood in me and yet I have their love. You haven't driven me out of this family. In fact, you've only given them incentive to rally around me. I finally have a family that I can count on. The Quartermaines know that I didn't kill anyone, and they're going to help me prove that I didn't do it. But if you were in my position, they wouldn't lift a finger to help you.
Tracy Quartermaine: They are my family.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Then act like it. The next time you want to do something hateful, do just the opposite. Ask Alan his option, take Dillon out to lunch. You don't have to be hateful, Tracy. You just choose to be.
Tracy Quartermaine: Well, Psychologist from convicted murderer - hmm. Guess you'll have plenty of time to discover everything about that subject in prison.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: You know what, Tracy? If I were to spend the next 30 years in prison, I'll have lived a much better life than you.
Sonny Corinthos: Your boyfriend's waiting.
Carly Corinthos: Oh, I'm not sure I can say the same thing about your girlfriend. Yeah, Sam and I, had a little chat. I told her that - that she means nothing to you, and she now knows that, and that she never will.
John Durant: Don't get between me and my daughter.
Jason Morgan: What are you going to do? Frame me?
John Durant: No, not at all. I'm going to go after your ex-wife, Courtney.
Jason Morgan: I'm going to make this really simple. You do anything to Courtney. And I'll kill you.
Heather Grant Webber: So, where are you and Skye hiding out?
Luke Spencer: I haven't seen Skye.
Heather Grant Webber: Come on, Luke. Everybody knows you and Skye are having a thing.
Luke Spencer: Heather, Port Chuckles is a hotbed of sanctimonious busybodies who can't keep their nose in their own business. You know that.
Heather Grant Webber: But you two worked at the Haunted Star together, you were partners. You must have spent a lot of time together.
Luke Spencer: Yeah, Well, I've also got a partner named Faith Rosco, or I used to. Does that mean I'm getting it on with her?
Heather Grant Webber: I don't know who Luke thinks he's fooling. I mean, he's obviously hiding that redhead witch. But something has to be done. I think Skye's really becoming a terrible threat. I think we have to eliminate her once and for all.
Michael Corinthos: Dad, can I ask you something?
Sonny Corinthos: Mm-hmm.
Michael Corinthos: Why do people get so sick?
Sonny Corinthos: It's part of life.
Michael Corinthos: I hate when bad things happen.
Sonny Corinthos: Yeah, well, you know what maybe the lesson it that you need to be thankful for every minute you're OK.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Look, I know you and Sonny are old friends, but this is a long way from Bensonhurst, and he's grown up to be a killer.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: And what are you?
Lorenzo Alcazar: The same, as I've tried to warn you. Sonny and I can be alike. I guess.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Well, that much you got right. Yeah, you both waste your talent and gifts on a brutal, ugly profession that doesn't get you anything but money and an early death.
Lorenzo Alcazar: You'd think it would work out that way, wouldn't you? But it's the people around me who keep dying - something else I happen to have in common with Sonny - although he still has some family left.
Helena Cassadine: You think you can stop me, Natasha, the coward? You watch me kill your mother.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I was just a little girl then.
Helena Cassadine: You were pathetic.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I'm not a little girl now and I'm going to be damned if I'm going to sit and watch you butcher anybody else again.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, you are damned, Natasha. You were damned the moment you were born, and your mother was damned the instant that she set sights on my husband. You're doomed to watch history repeat it's self.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: History is not going to repeat itself because you are going to be stopped now. I'm going to make you pay now for what you did to my mother.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, your mother deserved it.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: My mother deserved to me loved, and my mother was loved my your husband.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, how dare you. How dare you! Mikkos was my husband. He had me!
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Mikkos hated you.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, he despised you. Your presence in our home was intolerable.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Mikkos hated you, Helena, everybody hates you, Helena. Nobody will love you.
Nikolas Cassidine: Let her go.
Helena Cassadine: I am perilously close to losing my temper, Nikolas. Now, keep pushing me and I will end your auntie's pathetic life. Do you want that on your conscience for the rest of your life?
Nikolas Cassidine: You can't get away with this. You know that.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, you have been consorting with weaklings too long, Nikolas. You've forgotten what it means to be a Cassadine, to defy and have the strength to defy the laws of your inferiors.
Nikolas Cassidine: Really? Those inferiors will send you to prison.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, I've gotten away with murder before, and I'll get away with it again. I think this time it will be a distinct pleasure.
Nikolas Cassidine: You're sick.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, and then there's your beloved little Emily. How unfortunate she won't live long enough to marry the Cassadine prince.
Helena Cassadine: I would never hurt my darling grandson. All I've ever tried to do was protect him and encourage him to fulfill his destiny, but I have to save him from leeches like you and aunt Alexis.
Emily Quartermaine: I love Nikolas.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, love. See where it's gotten you? Oh, but you put up a good fight. Brava. No, but not that you ever stood a prayer.
Nikolas Cassidine: Ironic - if Helena weren't dead, she'd be proud of me. I Killed my own grandmother. Just like a true Cassadine would.
Emily Quartermaine: Nikolas, Helena had been terrorizing you. She had you locked up in a mental asylum. She gave you mind-altering drugs. She tried to kill me, Nikolas! You did it to save me.
Emily Quartermaine: You are a kind, loving, generous person...
Nikolas Cassidine: No, I'm a killer, just like every Cassadine before me! I have that instinct. I'll never get rid of it!
Emily Quartermaine: It was an accident.
Nikolas Cassidine: What? I threw her off the cliff. I told her to join my father in Hell.
Nikolas Cassidine: You will never forget what you saw me do here tonight.
Emily Quartermaine: Nikolas, I saw you protect me, fight against a woman who would do anything to kill me. That is what I'll remember, Nikolas. Your bravery and your love.
Nikolas Cassidine: I should turn myself in.
Emily Quartermaine: The police were already looking for Helena. She threatened Alexis at knife point, and she's suspected of killing Mary and that nurse. You say that it was an accident and they'll be happy to believe you.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: I assume you all received my fax.
Edward Quartermaine #3: What fax?
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: Oh, Heather was thoughtful enough to fax us a copy of your marriage certificate.
Edward Quartermaine #3: Really?
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: I thought I'd give everybody a head start on getting used to the idea and I was hoping when we got home that your family would be able to share in out happiness. Oh, it just occurred to me - you're all my family, too, now.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: Ugh.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: Just because you dragged my Father to the altar, don't think I'm going to start calling you Mother.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: Heather will be fine.
Tracy Quartermaine: I have a better idea. How about Thieving, Gold-Digging, Tramp?
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: My bags are still in the car. Bring them upstairs.
Alice: I don't take orders from you.
Heather Grant Webber Quartermaine: You do now.
Lorenzo Alcazar: So do you hate me now?
Carly Corinthos: You know, it'd be a lot easier if I did. But even now, after everything, no. Look, Lorenzo, honestly, I wish you well. I just - why don't you go somewhere else and just start over, start fresh?
Lorenzo Alcazar: Carly, if I left, now, I'd be running, and I refuse.
Carly Corinthos: But there's nothing left for you here.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Well, having nothing left can be very liberating. You can pretty much take any risk you want when you have nothing left to lose. But I don't expect you to understand you've got a lot at stake - Your children, your husband, even a father now.
Ric Lansing: Don't threaten Alcazar. Don't be around Durant. Just do yourself a favor, go home, be with your wife and your kids. And try your best to pretend like you're a law-abiding citizen.
Sonny Corinthos: What is motivating this brotherly concern here?
Ric Lansing: Look, you may be an amoral thug, but you're not stupid, all right? You're smart enough not to make public death threats. The fact that you just did proves you're nothing thinking clearly.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: I'm not defending Sonny.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Lois, Don't.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Just hear me out.
Lorenzo Alcazar: You're going to tell me how Sonny loss his temper, that he didn't mean it, he's really a good guy, and I know you believe that because you're generous enough to believe the same thing about me. You know what? You may be right. There may be some thin veneer of decency in both of us. But Sonny will kill to get his way and I will kill to survive. So at the end of the day, one of us is going to be eliminated.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: Your due date must be coming up. How do you feel?
Samantha McCall: Good, actually. I mean, I feel great. This is probably the most secure and settled I've ever felt in my entire life, thanks to Jason.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: Yeah. Yeah, I can tell he really cares about you. And though I never thought I would say it, I really - really believe you are good for him.
Diego: You've got this attitude. You want people to think you're a bad girl, and it's all an act.
Edward Quartermaine #3: That's enough out of you, ok!
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: No, no, no. I want to hear this one.
Diego: You got parents, money, and a home. And you're convinced that you have such a hard life.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: You know nothing about my life.
Diego: Oh, right, poor, misunderstood Pop Star. That's so weak.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: You know what, you could have all the money and all the family in this world, and you would still be a jerk!
Det. Andy Capelli: Did you warn Morgan to stay away from me?
Ric Lansing: Yeah, for all the good it did. You're a dead man.
Emily Quartermaine: Oh, you're really - you're really here. I'm not dreaming or hallucinating.
Nikolas Cassidine: Don't you know by now that I love you too much to ever leave you?
Sage Alcazar: Dillon, look at me. What do you see?
Dillon Quartermaine: You.
Sage Alcazar: No, you don't. You see someone who's not Georgie. You know, I went through a lot of trouble for tonight. I got this dress and made myself up. All to look good for you. I like you more than any boy ever. Sometimes I think you like me, too. Would you please just let Georgie go?
Dillon Quartermaine: I'm sorry. Things would be easier if I could, but I can't.
Travis: What would I have to do tonight?
Georgie Jones: Take me back to the dance, let them crown you, pretend to be my boyfriend.
Travis: You mean, mack all over you and tell all the guys you're hot in bed?
Georgie Jones: No. No, um - put your arm around me and kiss me gently once or twice.
Travis: If that's all you want from a boyfriend, it's no surprise you had to make one up. I mean, what's the point of dating if you're not going to have sex?
Luke Spencer: I'm disappointed in you, Red. Really disappointed. I mean, the Australian's rich, sure, but that's it. That's all he's got to offer. You could do so much better.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Well, I'm sure Jax has kind words for you, too.
Luke Spencer: Well, he should. I've never done anything to him. However, he has treated you like dirt, he's drop-kicked you, he's shallow as a mud puddle. What do you see in him, anyway? Why are you so hung up on him?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, there's so much more than that. Let's see while you were gone, Jax and I remarried. Oh, and even better, we're expecting a little bundle of joy. Let's see what else happened while you were away. Oh, yes, we were robbed opening night at the casino here. But, well, I managed to keep the place open while you were gone and just took off and left me a note!
Luke Spencer: You really missed me, didn't you?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, I missed you, all right, considering you're the only warm body between this casino and that bleached-blond psychopath freak, Faith Rosco.
Luke Spencer: She been threatening you again?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, only every time she turns around.
Tracy Quartermaine: Hmm. Fallen off the wagon, have we? What's your excuse this time? Jax doesn't love me, never did? Luke doesn't love me? I'm not a real Quartermaine? I have no friends, no life?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: What do you want?
Tracy Quartermaine: I want you gone.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, my God. It was you, wasn't it? You were the one who sent me the drink at the casino last night.
Tracy Quartermaine: Tasted like heaven, didn't it?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Wow. I must have you running scared.
Edward Quartermaine: Well, good, good, good - the two people I most want to see.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Well, now I know you're lying.
Edward Quartermaine: I guess you've heard that I'm changing my will. I'm leaving everything to anyone who can save E. L. Q.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: You're trying to eliminate the competition.
Edward Quartermaine: Why? What's she done now?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: You don't really believe Tracy can save E. L. Q. do you?
Tracy Quartermaine: Why bother with your real daughter when you can give everything away to a drunken Quartermaine wannabe?
Carly Corinthos: Alexis, Hey.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I'm certainly surprised to hear from you.
Carly Corinthos: Yeah, well, not as surprised as I was to be making the call, but I need your help. Listen, Sonny is trying to get a restraining order filed against me to keep me away from my kids and I need you to fight him in court.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Your asking me to represent you?
Carly Corinthos: Yes.
Carly Corinthos: Alexis, would you really want Sonny raising your daughter?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: No, but I wouldn't want you raising her, either. If you and Sonny are getting divorced - again - find somebody else to represent you. Leave me out of it.
Lucky Spencer: Mom was an addiction for you, Dad - a drug until you found your next fix.
Luke Spencer: Your mother will always be my drug of choice.
Laura Spencer: [after hanging a sheet up to divide her side of the motel room from Luke's while on the run from Frank Smith] I like it.
Luke Spencer: I hate it. It works. I got one question.
Laura Spencer: What's that?
Luke Spencer: With this blanket up here, what do I sleep under?
Laura Spencer: Luke, it's the middle of August. You don't need a blanket.
Luke Spencer: Okay. Fine with me, but I tell you something. I'm not gonna sleep in these clothes. I'm sleeping in the buff girl. And if you have to get up in the middle of the night, go down the hall to the little girl's room, be sure to peek baby I've got nothing to hide.
Laura Spencer: Okay. I will give you uh, a sheet. And I'll use the comforter.
Luke Spencer: How nice. As deep fried as it may be, the girl has a heart.
Laura Spencer: I slip sometimes.
Luke Spencer: Well merci beaucoup Simone!
Laura Spencer: You're welcome.
[Luke is acting as Laura's defense attorney in Jennifer's mock trial... ]
Luke Spencer: Gentlemen of the jury, look at this defendant. Just look into those eyes - clear, blue, like deep wells of sapphire. And the skin, check out that skin - smooth as marble, and yet coursing with the heat and passion of life. This woman is not only beautiful, she's courageous - she would risk her life for love. This woman would use her remarkable intellect to question all the great philosophies of the planet, and to figure out all the mysteries. This woman could break your heart with a smile, and she could melt your anger with a touch. This woman is as close to perfect as anything on this earth. Gentlemen, something this passionate, this loving, this perfect, cannot be guilty.
Jennifer Smith: Has the jury reached a verdict?
Man: We have, your honor. We find the defendant not guilty...
Luke Spencer: Yes!
Man: By reason of being too beautiful.
Luke Spencer: And that's right!
Jennifer Smith: Typical male jury.
[Luke's inner monologue, as Laura and Roy perform CPR on him... ]
Luke Spencer: Dying is easy. It's living that's hard. Whoever said that got it right. I have to admit, I expected more fuss. A checkered flag. Martha & The Vandellas in wings and halo. At least a good blues band. But this is only mind pictures. The Dick Tracy watch Bobbie stole for my 14th birthday. The first time I laid eyes on that shiny pink cadillac. The disco ball in the middle of my own club, reflecting light and all dreams. And Laura. Better than any choir of angels. Laura. Who makes it all worthwhile. Laura. My wife.
[Talking to Carly, about Luke since Laura's institutionalization... ]
Sonny Corinthos: Without Laura, he's like bleeding to death. But he doesn't die. He just keeps going, you know; looking for a reason, any reason, to get out of bed and face another pointless day.
Edward Quartermaine: Dillon?
Dillon Quartermaine: Why am I here?
Edward Quartermaine: So that I can apologize to you.
Dillon Quartermaine: For what?
Edward Quartermaine: For not spending enough time with you during your mother's recent absence.
Dillon Quartermaine: My Mom's been back for six months.
Edward Quartermaine: Dillon, what you need to understand, son, is that Lila and I practically raised Ned, and I thought that with your mother as your only role model that you were going to turn out to be a viper, like she is, but I - I was mistaken, you have potential.
Dillon Quartermaine: OK, now you're freaking me out.
Edward Quartermaine: No, no.
Dillon Quartermaine: Yeah.
Edward Quartermaine: You stand for what you believe. You're young. You got a lot to learn. But you do. You stand for what you believe and you have a strength of convictions, and you have that in spades.
Dillon Quartermaine: Yeah, and I thought you had no use for me.
Edward Quartermaine: Well, you thought wrong you give me a few years, and you could be C. E. O. of E. L. Q. huh?
Dillon Quartermaine: E. L. Q. ?
Edward Quartermaine: Well, sure. It's your legacy. Providing you keep your mother away form the helm. You see, I can revise my will so that you could get the lion's share of my estate, hmm?
Dillon Quartermaine: I don't know what to say.
Edward Quartermaine: Well, you might try yes or thank you.
Dillon Quartermaine: Listen - no, thanks.
Edward Quartermaine: What?
Dillon Quartermaine: I'm going to be an independent filmmaker.
Edward Quartermaine: An independent what?
Dillon Quartermaine: Yeah, so, you can go back to calling me names, like derelict and good-for-nothing now, OK?
Tracy Quartermaine: Sweetheart, have you been sniffing that hair product?
Dillon Quartermaine: Later, Mom.
Edward Quartermaine: Well, congratulations, Tracy. Another splendid product of your parenting expertise. Peterpan with a movie camera.
Samantha McCall: I didn't take Jason's bribe because I can't be bought.
Sonny Corinthos: That's a lot of cash.
Samantha McCall: I know. I want to be rich, but I'll do it on my own. I wouldn't let Jax pay my way, and I won't take a bribe from Jason to leave you alone.
Sonny Corinthos: I can respect that.
Samantha McCall: Well, that is nice to hear, but it really doesn't matter. The only opinion I respect is my own.
Sonny Corinthos: I'll remember that.
Samantha McCall: The way I see it is I'll be damned if I let anyone else mess up my life besides me.
Courtney Matthews: Your job - it ends up hurting everybody in the end, including the people that you'd die for. Oh, God. Jason, Michael is - he is the most wonderful kid in the world. He is so warm and loving, and he trusts. Pretty soon, Michael is going to shut down, and he won't even be able to let someone teach him how to play catch, because the only people he's allowed to trust are you and Sonny.
Jason Morgan: And you. He can trust you.
Courtney Matthews: Oh, really? Well, for how long? You know, I don't agree with the way that Sonny's acting, so pretty soon he is going to turn against me, too. He's already thrown Carly out of her own kids' lives. You're the only person that those kids are going to have left. Michael and Morgan are the real victims here, Jason.
Dr. Cameron Lewis: Alexis, thanks for coming.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Did you find Zander?
Dr. Cameron Lewis: I want you to take his case.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You know I can't do that. It's a conflict of interest.
Dr. Cameron Lewis: Alexis, he's been shot. He's in the basement of this hotel with a loaded gun.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Then go down there and help him.
Dr. Cameron Lewis: I've done all he'll allow. If somebody doesn't talk him down, he'll probably be killed resisting arrest. Alexis, I can't help my son. Maybe you can.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: He collapsed from smoke inhalation! Now, help me move him!
Faith Rosco: What do I get out of it?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: You get to live because, I swear, if you leave us, I will survive for the sole purpose of hunting you down and ringing your scrawny little neck!
Faith Rosco: Fine. But just so you know, I'm doing this for Spencer, Even I don't want to see the devil get burned.
Dillon Quartermaine: What's wrong?
Georgie Jones: The hotel's on fire!
Dillon Quartermaine: Are you sure?
Georgie Jones: Yes! The hallways are filled with smoke!
Sage Alcazar: If that's the best excuse you can come up with to interrupt us, you're even lamer than I thought.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, my God, he's barely breathing.
Faith Rosco: Oh, here, you need a professional. My lips have been known to wake the dead.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: You know what, Faith? You helped get him in here. Now you can go.
Faith Rosco: And leave you alone in here with Luke? I don't think so. Once we get him back among the living, he's going to help me through the fire - I need a shield.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: The cable's breaking.
Carly Corinthos: OK. OK, we still have some time. All right, if we - if we can get to the next floor, then maybe we can just...
Alexis Davis Cassadine: What do you want me to do?
Carly Corinthos: Try and get out of here and - before the cables snap.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: What do you want me to do?
Carly Corinthos: Do you know anything about hot-wiring an elevator?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: OK, I'm a logical person, so I'm sure that there's a logical pattern to the way this is wired, so let's see.
Carly Corinthos: Too bad it's not voice-activated. You could then lecture us out of here.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I'm surprised you don't know how to hot-wire an elevator.
Luke Spencer: This is not like you to freeze up, Red.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: No. Luke, it's called logic and common sense.
Faith Rosco: No, no, it's called blind panic! Look, I'm not going to die because this bimbo is too drunk or too dumb to walk out of a burning building.
Luke Spencer: Feel free to leave us.
Faith Rosco: Uh, no. I saved your life. I expect you to return the favor.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: You know, I may loathe that woman, but she's got a point. Look, you know, you and Faith, you want to go, go.
Nikolas Cassidine: I will be evacuated just like everybody else, OK?
Helena Cassadine: Oh, Nikolas, don't be naive. The fire is spreading. There is no rescue in sight, and not everyone in this room is going to survive, and you have to.
Nikolas Cassidine: What's happening?
Lucky Spencer: The wind is too strong. They'll try again when it gets - when it dies down.
Tracy Quartermaine: They can't! The building is burning down below us!
Justice Ward: This wind is making the fire worse inside!
Edward Quartermaine: We have to be patient! The helicopter will evacuate us as soon as it's possible!
Tracy Quartermaine: If any of us are still alive!
Tracy Quartermaine: Why don't you sit down and rest, Daddy? Let others do the worrying.
Edward Quartermaine: Spare me the phony concern.
Tracy Quartermaine: Jeez, Daddy, we're trapped in a burning building. We may not make it out alive. What possible reason would I have to be phony? I love you. Why do you let everybody in but me?
Edward Quartermaine: Because you frighten me, Tracy. You always have. When I look at you, I see the worse of myself.
Tracy Quartermaine: Well, I've succeeded, all I ever wanted was to be just like you.
Faith Rosco: You know, didn't I hear that Carly was a guest at this hotel? That means that she and her lover could be crispy critters real soon. Is that what you were counting on? Or maybe deep down inside, you're still worrying about little Carly?
Sonny Corinthos: Do you understand we could die? You're wasting time!
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I don't know if it's ironic symmetry or just a cosmic joke that I should be spending what could be the last moments of my life with you.
Carly Corinthos: Would you just quite yapping?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I don't think confronting my mortality should be considered yapping.
Carly Corinthos: OK. I'm down here. It's your turn.come on.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Oh, boy.
Carly Corinthos: Come on, Alexis. You have always thought you were better than me. Now's your change to prove it.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I never said I was better than you, just smarter and classier. You're clearly a better athlete, and you have much better survival instincts. Kind of like a cockroach.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: I feel like an idiot.
Luke Spencer: Oh, you look like a princess.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, your opinion doesn't count. You're just delirious with joy over finding that stupid treasure. Now, come on, Luke, we have to move faster!
Luke Spencer: Give me a break! I'm dragging my booty as fast as I can.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Can we lose half of it?
Luke Spencer: Oh, perish the thought, woman.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, what if we perish instead? I swear to you, Luke, that if we get killed over this heap of junk, I will never forgive you.
Dr. Cameron Lewis: Do something for me.
Luke Spencer: What?
Dr. Cameron Lewis: Take care of Lucky the way I never took care of my boys. Love that little girl within an inch of her life. If you don't, the regrets are profound.
Luke Spencer: Well, that's easier said than done, Doc. You're going to have to hang around and enforce compliance.
Dr. Cameron Lewis: Luke, we both know that's not going to happen. I know what dying is. Hell, I should. I've been dying inside for years.
Carly Corinthos: There is a strange kind of logic in this, though, that we'd end up here together. You - you were always my rock, my emergency brakes, you know that you are my best friend? Did you ever - do you ever think that we could've been more?
Jason Morgan: Yeah.
Carly Corinthos: Was there a possibility?
Jason Morgan: I can't speak for you.
Carly Corinthos: I'm not asking you to. You're dodging the question, come on. I just - I just need to know. Did you ever feel - did you ever feel more for me?
Jason Morgan: Yes, I did.
Carly Corinthos: Me, too. Why didn't we ever pursue it?
Jason Morgan: There was always something in the way.
Carly Corinthos: Now there's nothing in the way, Jason, except imminent death. Jason, kiss me good-bye.
Justice Ward: What are the odds of us getting on that chopper?
Faith Rosco: Well, lets see. After poor little Emily, prince Nikolas, and the ridiculous teenagers, I'd say we might as well take a swan dive down an elevator shaft.
Luke Spencer: Hey! Life's a gamble, People! This proves it! Everybody's got one chance to save his or her life! This is going to be a lottery, folks. Everybody draws a number, low goes first, high last. The only exceptions will be the badly injured and kids under 18 - they take priority.
Faith Rosco: Who put you in charge?
Luke Spencer: This. This is my authority. You want to challenge it, step forward. I won't hesitate to put a bullet in anybody who causes trouble. And one more thing - all drawings are final. No trading number, no selling them off. What you draw is when you leave, period! That all right with you?
Ric Lansing: It's a plan.
Lucky Spencer: Dr. Quartermaine, I've got news. The first group of passengers are about to board the helicopter any minute.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: I hope to God Emily and Monica are on it. Emily is hurt, Monica's a doctor.
Lucky Spencer: OK, But I don't have the passenger list. It's up to the people in the Versailles room to determine who comes down when.
Ned Ashton: That could easily turn into survival of the fittest. I mean, how many people do you think up there are willing to kill to live?
Carly Corinthos: How's Sonny?
Courtney Matthews: Well, he tore some ligaments in his knee. He's in pain, but he's holding up OK.
Carly Corinthos: Do you know what number he got? I'm - I'm 23, and I was hoping that he could fly out sooner so he could be with the boys no matter what happens.
Lorenzo Alcazar: You're not going to die tonight, Carly. I can promise you that.
Courtney Matthews: Yeah, you know what? For once I agree with him. Listen, we're all going to get evacuated safely. Just try and think positive, OK?
Carly Corinthos: What number did you get?
Courtney Matthews: I got 31. So, it looks like I'm going to be in one of the last groups to go.
Luke Spencer: Congratulations. You just pulled number seven for the helicopter ride. I've been holding it for you.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: No trading numbers, no selling them off. The number you pick is when you leave. Do your own words have a familiar ring?
Luke Spencer: I don't follow rules, especially my own.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: I think it's extremely chivalrous of you to offer, but I picked 19. I will go when they call that number.
Luke Spencer: I've always heard redheads were fiery and stubborn, full of life, and passion. tonight you proved it, Blaze.
Ric Lansing: All right, next group, line up, please. Numbers eight through 14.
Helena Cassadine: I have 11.
Faith Rosco: Well, looks like I'm leaving.
Justice Ward: Have a safe trip.
Faith Rosco: I hope you make it, counselor. But if you die tonight, look on the bright side. Sooner or later, I'll be joining you in hell.
Det. Andy Capelli: You're under arrest, Morgan.
Justice Ward: Aren't you going too far, Capelli?
Det. Andy Capelli: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
Sonny Corinthos: Capelli, we're in a burning building, where's he going to go?
Det. Andy Capelli: He's going to go down! Down! 20 floors to be exact, and I'm taking him.
Ric Lansing: You're taking him?
Det. Andy Capelli: Yeah. That'll eliminate the rescue chopper from making a final trip.
Ric Lansing: No, I'm sorry, Capelli. You work for the department. We don't want to lose you. It's unacceptable.
Det. Andy Capelli: It's my job.
Sonny Corinthos: Ric! This is murder! You know it is - the kind you like the best, where you don't have to get your hands dirty!
Ric Lansing: Go ahead. take him down and make sure both of you make it.
Justice Ward: There's no way they could've survived that fall. Sonny and Carly are dead.
Lorenzo Alcazar: That's a lie. Carly's not dead.
Nikolas Cassidine: Hey, you go and you lose your chance to be evacuated.
Lorenzo Alcazar: I don't give a damn. I'm going to find Carly. She's alive.
Justice Ward: Where are you going?
Ric Lansing: Sonny's my brother, I got to help him.
Justice Ward: Sonny's dead. Think about it.
Ric Lansing: We don't know that!
Justice Ward: You have a wife and a baby on the way. They need you. You don't have the right to risk your life anymore. Sonny wouldn't expect that from you.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: The helicopter's landing. We have to go.
Barbara Jean Spencer: We're going to take you upstairs and prep you for surgery.
Brian Beck: What about Courtney?
Barbara Jean Spencer: I spoke to some friends who are on the emergency team just a few moments ago.courtney made it down safely.
Brian Beck: What about her husband
Barbara Jean Spencer: Well. some people are still unaccounted for, my daughter is one of them. Jason's another.
Courtney Matthews: Justus! Justus, maybe I got my numbers confused, but I thought Sonny was supposed to be on that flight. Something happened. What?
Justice Ward: Part of the floor where Sonny was standing fell thought. He fell in.
Mike Corbin: Well, somebody went after him, right? They're - they're going to get my son out.
Justice Ward: Lorenzo Alcazar insisted on searching for them.
Courtney Matthews: Them?
Justice Ward: Carly and Sonny were together. I'm sorry. I don't see how they could've survived.
Courtney Matthews: Isn't this a sweet little picture - the sick freak reunited with his clueless wife and unborn child.
Ric Lansing: I guess you heard about Sonny and Carly?
Courtney Matthews: Yeah, Sonny and Carly are dead, Jason's trapped, and here you are, Ric - Good old Ric. Who tormented all of, you son of a bitch. It shouldn've been you! I hate you!
Samantha McCall: How can Sonny be dead?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: And he took a woman with him. It's so damn typical.
Samantha McCall: All right. Maybe - maybe it's a mistake, right?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: No, it's not a mistake. Sonny's been cheating death for years. It's just finally caught up with him.
Samantha McCall: Well he and Carly might - might have been able to get out. I mean, we did, right? And there was no hope for us either. I mean, I just think that maybe if anyone can do it, Sonny can.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: You're in love with him aren't you?
Sonny Corinthos: Maybe it's better for you not to wake up. I don't think we're going to make it out of here. I don't want you to be afraid. I'd give my life if you were just home with the boys. Taking care of them. I've never loved or hated anyone the way I loved and hated you. The way I hate and love you right now. Please, wake up.
Ned Ashton: Alan, how is he?
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: We almost lost him in the ambulance.
Tracy Quartermaine: He's not going to die.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: You'd like nothing better, would you?
Tracy Quartermaine: What a terrible thing to say.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: Why? You almost let him die at your feet before, didn't you?
Tracy Quartermaine: Oh, Alan, please.
Ned Ashton: Let's not talk about this right now.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: Except this time he has medicine, doesn't he?
Tracy Quartermaine: That is uncalled for.
Elizabeth Webber Lansing: Ric isn't to blame for any of this!
Courtney Matthews: Yeah, he never is!
Ric Lansing: Look, Sonny was my brother, too!
Courtney Matthews: Oh, and you did so much for him, Ric. You drugged his wife, you made Carly think that you rapped her and you then you kidnapped her and tried to steal her unborn child! You're sick!
Elizabeth Webber Lansing: Look, Courtney, I understand you're upset, but, Ric had nothing to do with what just happened to your brother and Carly, OK?
Ric Lansing: Courtney, I would have gone after them if...
Courtney Matthews: Oh, but you couldn't, because it was more important to get your psychotic self on that helicopter than to save the brother you wanted dead in the first place!
Ric Lansing: Look - look I understand that you hate me! I under stand that! You have every reason to! But, don't you dare to presume to understand how I feel about our brother!
Courtney Matthews: Oh, let me guess, Ric! you really loved him deep down inside. I don't buy it! Elizabeth might! But, I never will!
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Look, you just can't come into my house and take a shower.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: I thought you'd understand.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Understand what? I don't go into your house and take a shower, do I?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: I don't have a house anymore.
Luke Spencer: See, he's got you there. Blaze.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Don't call me Blaze.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: Why does he call you Blaze?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: He doesn't call me Blaze.
Luke Spencer: You ever seen this woman wield a fire extinguisher.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Look, you know what? We all got out of the fire. We're safe. I'm incredibly grateful. But, all I want out of life right now is a long hot bubble bath.
Luke Spencer: Care for company?
Tracy Quartermaine: Where have you two been?
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: We've been with Emily.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: My daughter has lost her fiance.
Helena Cassadine: That's all Nikolas was to you - a boy in love with your daughter. Now, my grandson is gone. He's gone. And I will spend the rest of my life seeing that the Quartermaines pay - every last one of you. Now that Nikolas is gone. I have nothing to live for but vengeance.
Justice Ward: Mrs. Cassadine, we certainly...
Helena Cassadine: Retribution is my special gift. Years ago I cursed Luke and Laura. Now Laura's a vegetable, and Luke is slowly drinking himself to death.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Luke survived a lot worse than you - tonight alone.
Helena Cassadine: I'll make sorrow and regret your constant companions.
Tracy Quartermaine: You're braking mad.
Helena Cassadine: Yes, and you will be too, when you've lost your sons as I lost my grandson.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Come on, this is the last thing Nikolas would want.
Helena Cassadine: Don't you presume to speak for my grandson! His death will be avenged. And you will all pay dearly! You - You most of all.
Tracy Quartermaine: Good grief! That woman is melodramatic.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: Well, Helena's hex obviously solves are liability problem - we'll all be dead within the week.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Hey, Brian, it's OK. It's over now.
Brian Beck: I did love you, Courtney.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: You're going to be all right.
Brian Beck: I know. Karen and Henry are waiting for me.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Nurse, we need some help in here!
Brian Beck: Be happy, Courtney.
Nikolas Cassidine: I'm glad that you survived the fire as well. As much as I've hated you at times. I never really wanted you dead.
Helena Cassadine: I know that. And I know that, on some level you've always understood my devotion to you.
Nikolas Cassidine: Doesn't mean I accept or condone all the terrible things you've done. All I'm saying is that maybe - maybe this fire is a change for us to start over, to connect as a - as a family - not that that's even possible. Believe me, I have my doubts about your motivations.
Helena Cassadine: No, Nikolas, it is more than possible.
Helena Cassadine: Nikolas?
Nikolas Cassidine: Hello, Grandmother.
Helena Cassadine: You're alive.
Nikolas Cassidine: Yeah. I can see that you're worried, grandmother. But, I'm all right, really.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, It felt like a cosmic joke that you would die in a fire cause by someone else's negligence. After everything I did to save you - yet here you are - the strongest of the strong. Oh, my perfect prince.
Helena Cassadine: I want you to kill Edward Quartermaine.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You'll have to kill me first. If you as so much as enter General Hospital, let alone the I. C. U. I will have you arrested for attempted murder.
Mitchell Coleman: Chill. I'm not going to kill anybody. I'm a lover not a fighter.
Helena Cassadine: You don't belong here.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You are so predictable. As soon as there's death and destruction, there you are in the middle of it, foaming at the mouth.
Helena Cassadine: It's call revenge. Edward Quartermaine practically murdered my grandson.
Edward Quartermaine: Oh, Emily, I can't tell you how grateful I am that you're safe.
Emily Quartermaine: You must be a whole lot happier now that Nikolas is gone.
Edward Quartermaine: No, Emily, now, you know that I opposed your engagement to Nikolas. But I...
Emily Quartermaine: That hotel was a firetrap, and you knew it! You could of stop what happened. Nikolas died because of you!
Luke Spencer: Hi, It's me. Lucas Lorenzo Spencer. Well, what can you say about Cameron Lewis except that he was as crazy as most of his patients? Which is probably why he was a good doctor. He was an honest man, and he told it like it was. He'd been to some dark places in himself, and he wasn't afraid of those place in other people. He knew what made seemingly intelligent people trash their own lives. Dr. Lewis died saving my son, probably because he couldn't save his own. He made mistakes, like everybody, but did what he could to fix what he had broken. He was a good man, an honest man. I don't really believe that the dead can hear me or see me. But, just in case I'm wrong, Thanks, Cameron. You were a good friend.
Jason Morgan: You had a nice story the last time you tried to kill me. What's it going to be this time?
Det. Andy Capelli: That's an easy one. You tried to kill me, and I shot you in self-defense.
Jason Morgan: You want me dead to frame me for shooting detective Beck, when you're the one who killed him. That's very good, Capelli.
Det. Andy Capelli: Oh, you figured that out all by yourself, huh, Morgan? I guess you're not as stupid as people think.
Carly Corinthos: What are you doing here?
Samantha McCall: Hi, Sonny asked me to give you a message. The boys - They're going to stay with him.
Carly Corinthos: He's going to kidnap the kids. I knew it. He probably has them in the car already. He's probably leaving town right now.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Lucky, send an officer to check the penthouse.
Carly Corinthos: No, it is too late for that. You get an A. P. B. out on Sonny and arrest this bitch for conspiracy to kidnap my kids!
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Have you forgotten one very important detail? Faith is a homicidal maniac.
Luke Spencer: True, but she's also a savvy investor.
Faith Rosco: Oh, thank you. It's nice to be appreciated.
Luke Spencer: Her participation guarantees notoriety. Plus we all benefit from the percentage of laundering her money, which I explained to you already.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Yeah, but, you see, that was before you disappeared and left me alone with this bleach-blond barracuda, before I had to stop her from murdering Justus Ward, before she tried to kick us out of our own club.
Faith Rosco: Is this a private rant, or can anyone chime in?
Luke Spencer: Chime.
Faith Rosco: Good. See, now that you're back and someone competent is in control. I promise to be on my very, very best behavior. See, I'd rather have you on my side than standing against me, so to speak.
Luke Spencer: I'm glad we understand each other. I look forward to doing more business with you.
Faith Rosco: I'm breathless with anticipation. Don't disappoint me.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Do you want to get the knife out of my back because it's a little hard to reach.
Luke Spencer: Oh, come on, Blaze, calm down.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, no, don't Blaze me! You just sided against me with a psychopath.
Luke Spencer: Well, I think she's more of a sociopath, actually, but she's not so bad. Believe me, I've danced with worse.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, my God. I can't believe I didn't see this before. You actually enjoy having that woman around, don't you? You like the treachery with a little murder thrown in. You're really having fun here, aren't you?
Luke Spencer: That's somewhat true.
Emily Quartermaine: No one in your family actually went crazy because of love.
Nikolas Cassidine: My mother's in a hospital, Emily, remember?
Emily Quartermaine: Nikolas, Laura had a traumatic experience in her past. That's the reason she's sick. It has nothing to do with Stefan or Stavros. I mean, look - look at Helena. She's indestructible. Why didn't your grandfather's love destroy her?
Nikolas Cassidine: But it did. Helena's psychotic. She may not wander around talking to herself or sit staring at a wall all day like my mother, but she's definitely insane.
Carly Corinthos: I hired a new lawyer, someone who is very qualified to handle this case.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Who is it?
Carly Corinthos: Alexis Davis.
Lorenzo Alcazar: She's a madwoman. She is not the right person to get your children back.
Carly Corinthos: I disagree.
Lorenzo Alcazar: She put a knife in my brother's chest and pushed him over a balcony, Carly. If there's any justus she'd be doing life in prison.
Carly Corinthos: OK, trust me. I do not want to work with Alexis. She is really the last person. But she's the only one that can handle Sonny.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Oh, you're assuming because she represented him one time she'll be able to throw him off balance in court? You can't trust her, Carly. She despises you.
Georgie Jones: Maxie, you did everything you could for Zander.
Maxie Jones: No, I did everything wrong. I left him in a room where he burned to death.
Georgie Jones: Maxie, that was not your fault.
Maxie Jones: No, Zander - Zander would still be alive if I'd only told Mac where he was, If I had been honest. Lies are not the easy way out. They get people killed.
Carly Corinthos: Sonny and I are parents together, and that's as far as it goes. Anything else is over.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Why?
Carly Corinthos: Let's pull one thing out of the hat - Sam.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Oh, come on, Carly, you don't honestly believe that he loves her?
Carly Corinthos: It's got nothing to do with love, Courtney. It's about keeping score. You know how it works. You disagree with Sonny, five points off. You cross him, ten points off. You do something that he thinks is betrayal, ok, you're out of the game. And right now, Sam's playing the game perfectly, ok? So let her enjoy it. She's keeping her mouth shut. She's doing what she's told. Let her have the fun while it lasts. I'm out of it. I am standing on my own two feet.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, Sonny. I'm sorry, I didn't see you down there. I'm wearing heels today.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Sonny and that trashy wife of his have all the class of a couple of inbred hillbillies.
Sonny Corinthos: What?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Calling you a pea brain would be an insult to peas.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Sonny? That greaseball would repel a maggot.
Emily Quartermaine: Jase, you know I think you're perfect.
Jason Morgan: Ah, I'm far from it, Emily.
Emily Quartermaine: And it would be perfect if you'd just get out of your own way and just let yourself be happy.
Jason Morgan: Please, don't do this.
Emily Quartermaine: You know what? I've heard all the reason's that you and Courtney can't be happy, Jason. I'm not sure I believe them. I'm not sure you do, either. But I'm absolutely convinced that love is precious, Jason, it's rare, and you'd be a fool to throw it away. And my big brother's nobody's fool.
Carly Corinthos: So what is the point of your visit here, Jax? You just want to stir things up between me and Sonny?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: Oh, Carly, you can manage that without any coaching form me. I'm here on a different matter.
Carly Corinthos: Sam, right?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: It does have something to do with her, yes.
Carly Corinthos: Mm-hmm, yes? Let me guess - it's got to be driving you crazy that another one of your old flames is with Sonny. It's like déjà vu all over again, except it's a trailer park version of the Brenda saga.
Tracy Quartermaine: You tell Jax he's not for you - which wouldn't be lie. Because he's not, he's mine. You put an end to this silly little crush he thinks he has on you, and I would be willing to overlook the infraction.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: You're serious.
Tracy Quartermaine: As a heart attack.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: You would really prevent underprivileged children from getting the help they need just to satisfy your aging ego?
Tracy Quartermaine: Look, Sweets, you're playing way out of your league, with me and with Jax. He needs woman of substance, not a piece of trash who used to ride a pole in a strip club for dollar tips.
Jason Morgan: What the hell do you want?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: I wanted to congratulate you in person on becoming a father.
Faith Rosco: Oh? You and Bunny are back together?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: No, that's old news. Jason finally found someone on his own level - Sam McCall.
Faith Rosco: Oh, oh, this is really too delicious. You've been boffing Sonny's girlfriend and live to tell the tale.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: Yes, but that's not all Sam just shared the happy news - her and Jason are getting married.
Luke Spencer: Look, Mr. Lansing, you have no idea. You have no experience dealing with the Cassadines. The family ancestral motto is "cause as much misery to as many people as possible, " and Helena here is the grand mistress of misery!
Helena Cassadine: Luke has always been obsessed with me. I suppose it's flattering in a perverse sort of way.
Luke Spencer: Well, perversity is your best event, Cupcake.
Samantha McCall: Where did you get peppermint tea?
Jason Morgan: I don't know, that's old. Brenda bought it.
Samantha McCall: The Brenda? The goddess on a pedestal who I sort of look like but can't hope to replace for Sonny and Jax? That Brenda?
Jason Morgan: Yeah, she - she lived here for a little while when we were married.
Samantha McCall: What?
Jason Morgan: Brenda and I were married for a little while.
Samantha McCall: Were married, Yeah. Ok, I got that part. Why, and why didn't anyone tell me?
Jason Morgan: Why are they going to tell you? It's not like we were in love. Brenda thought that she was sick and she wanted me to commit her to a mental hospital. And I could only do it if I was her husband.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: The issue in question here is Faith's innocence or guilt, not my romantic life.
Ric Lansing: Well, if that's what you can call it. You seem to express attraction like some sort of 9-year-old school girl, picking fights and throwing insults around. What happens when you reach your crescendo? Do you punch the object of your affection in the arm?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Clearly, you're defensive about your impotence in the court room.
Ric Lansing: Oh.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Otherwise, you wouldn't be overcompensating...
Ric Lansing: I see.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: By making personal attacks on me.
Ric Lansing: Here come the insults, right on cue.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: That's right.
Ric Lansing: Alexis, if you want to ask me out for a drink, why don't you just come right out like a big girl and ask me instead of resorting to school-yard tactics?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I would rather die of thirst than ever have a drink with you.
Carly Corinthos: Sonny, didn't you know that I would be here?
Sonny Corinthos: Yeah, if you got word, yeah. Just like I'd find you.
Carly Corinthos: And I know you would find me if I was in trouble.
Sonny Corinthos: I'd find you. I'd save your life if I had to, If I - I'd die trying. That's just he way it is.
Carly Corinthos: So we've got the crisis situation down. Sonny, why are we so lousy on the day-to-day?
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Jax is just the tip of the iceberg as far as me and Sonny. We - we have some major issues.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Well, your brother, Sonny, he can be a little difficult.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Try impossible. Look, he - he wants to run my life and shut me out at the same time. Sonny - I mean, he's arrogant, he's obsessed with power, and you know what, he gets so incredibly angry sometimes you can't even be around him.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Yeah, but he's also decent and generous and superloyal. And he is totally respectful of women, except for the ones he happens to be sleeping with - yeah, they get destroyed. Which is perfect justice that he wound up with Carly, that raving bitch from hell.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: That would be Carly, my best friend.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Oh. Give me a second to pry my foot out of my mouth, and you can tell me all about it.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: I have to admit what I heard today made me change my mind about Skye's guilt.
Tracy Quartermaine: Oh - how mealy-mouthed are you?
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: What...
Ned Ashton: What's wrong, mother? All your attempts at making Skye look like a sociopathic killer blowing up in your face? It's the least you deserve.
Edward Quartermaine #3: I warned you about turning against Skye on the stand, now, didn't I?
Tracy Quartermaine: How can you be so protective of an outsider?
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: Skye's more part of this family then you'll ever be.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: If your feelings are hurt, why don't you go someplace and recuperate - like another planet for a very long time.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Tell me something, Ric - how do you sleep at night?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Done worse, slept better.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Yeah, I know your type, Mr. Lorenzo Alcazar. Beautiful manners, not hard to look at. There is something very fundamentally decent about you that marches hand in hand with something very fundamentally dangerous. Which is what makes gangsters bad boyfriends and even worse business partners.
Lorenzo Alcazar: I'm not a gangster.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Because even with the best of intentions, which I'm sure yours are, their lives depend on secrecy and lies. They're used to getting whatever they want at any cost. They are basically spoiled, overgrown 6-year-olds running around with guns. And what sensible woman would want any part of that?
Lorenzo Alcazar: What if I told this sensible woman that I have a master's from oxford?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Well, then I would say congratulation on your intellectual pursuits. But that a well-read gangster is still a gangster. And I have learned something in my life.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Mm-hmm.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Yeah - I don't accept money from shady characters.
Lorenzo Alcazar: You know, I don't think I've ever been called a shady character before.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Well, then, you're long overdue - no offense.
Sonny Corinthos: I don't see you for years. You show up on my doorstep asking for a favor.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Guilty as charged. But I have to say it's not like you've gone out of your way to stay in touch with me either, mister.
Sonny Corinthos: Right, right.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: In fact, last time we spoke I think you were getting married to Carly, which was unexpected, to say the least, but it looks like everything's worked out all right. I understand you had a baby.congratulations.
Sonny Corinthos: Thank you.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Can I see him?
Carly Corinthos: No. Morgan's sleeping. Maybe some other time.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Oh. What about that other little tyke?
Sonny Corinthos: He's across the hall with Jason.
Carly Corinthos: His name is Michael.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Michael. Right. Yes, A. J. 's son.
Carly Corinthos: No, he's A. J. 's nothing. Sonny's is Michael's legal adopted father.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Naturally. I never intended to imply otherwise.
Carly Corinthos: Well, then, maybe you should think before you open your mouth and say things that are offensive.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Ohh. Look at you.
Carly Corinthos: How rude are you?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Come again?
Carly Corinthos: Well, Sonny's good enough for you to partner up with when you need his - oh, let me think about this, take a wild guess - capital, and now he just seems to be a little too much baggage to carry?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Pretty much.
Carly Corinthos: How you could call her a friend, I just don't understand.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Maybe because you haven't had enough experience in that area to understand.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: Hey, speaking from experience, chasing after other people's problems is never a good idea.
Carly Corinthos: Listen, Sam McCall is my problem. She has already upset my kids, she slept with my husband, and now she's trying to trap Jason. She has got to go, and the sooner the better.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: How do you think you're going to cover yourself? Don't you think that Sonny's going to be a little curious about your spur-of-the-moment trip to Bailey's Beach South Carolina?
Carly Corinthos: Look, he's not even going to know that I was gone, all right? And when I come back, hopefully I'll have proof that Sam's not only a liar and a tramp, but she's also a serious threat to my family.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: Well, it seems like she's hiding a lot.
Carly Corinthos: Of course she is. I mean, it's got to be something bad, too, otherwise she would be using it to get Jason's sympathies.
Carly Corinthos: All right, I'm going to lay it on the table - I am a hypocrite, and anything you've done, I have done much worse.
Samantha McCall: I - I highly doubt that.
Carly Corinthos: Oh really? Have you ever stolen your mother's husband out of spit?
Samantha McCall: You did that?
Carly Corinthos: Yeah, and then I shot him in open court. It really wasn't one of my better days. Tony Jones got what he deserved, but my mother did not. What about you? Hmm? You close with your mom?
Samantha McCall: I barely knew her.
Carly Corinthos: Why is she dead?
Samantha McCall: I have - I have no idea.
Carly Corinthos: What about ex-husbands? Hmm? I drugged Michael's biological father and I threw him in an alley and then poured vodka all over him.
Samantha McCall: Really? Why - why?
Carly Corinthos: Remember Tony Jones I just mentioned? I was hoping he was Michael's biological father, not A. J. , and I was afraid that A. J. was going to push for a paternity test. I didn't want him to, so I made him think that he needed to be in rehab.
Samantha McCall: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Jason told me that you married A. J. before Sonny.
Carly Corinthos: Yeah, I did, and truthfully, I regret marrying A. J. a hell of a lot more than I regret drugging him but at the time, I thought I was doing the right thing.
Emily Quartermaine: Is Nikolas here?
Mary Bishop: Emily.
Emily Quartermaine: Yeah, that's right, Mary. I know everything. You found Nikolas after his car accident. He needed a doctor and his family and me, and you kept him away from everyone he loves most! You made him believe he was a deserter! You stole his entire life! And now I am here to give it back to him.connor Bishop is dead, and Nikolas Cassadine is going home with me.
Jason Morgan: OK, when the bartender gets back, I want you to distract him.
Carly Corinthos: OK. How?
Jason Morgan: Just do something you're good at - lie.
Mary Bishop: I would do anything for Connor. He knows that. I made him safe. I brought him back from the darkness. You can call it an accident or fate or an answer to my prayer. But the only truth that really matters is that he loves me. And if you really love him as much as you say you do, you'll let him stay with me.
Emily Quartermaine: Like hell I will.
Emily Quartermaine: Jason sent me because he thought you might need someone to talk to.
Samantha McCall: He worries about me.
Emily Quartermaine: You couldn't ask for anyone better in your corner. No matter what kind of trouble you're in.
Samantha McCall: You know, actually, it's not all trouble. We just found out we're having a baby girl.
Emily Quartermaine: Oh, congratulations.
Samantha McCall: Yeah. I just - I wish this nightmare was over so I could just focus on the baby.
Emily Quartermaine: You know, the past is part of us, Sam. But getting stuck in it doesn't help anyone. I learned that one the hard way.
Ric Lansing: Oh, You know what? It must really get under your skin that Sonny's ex-mistress lives right across the hall. She's almost family now, isn't she? And we all know that you don't like anybody getting in your little clan.
Carly Corinthos: You got a problem with Sam, Ric, get rid of her yourself.
Nikolas Cassidine: You're just like Emily and Lucky and Alexis. Trying to tell me how I should act, who I should be. That's not going to happen.
Helena Cassadine: I am your closest living relative, Nikolas. Emily - she was just a distraction, a fleeting romance. She's not worthy of you. And as for Alexis? The Cassidine bastard. She hates us more with every living minute. She would love nothing more to turn you against me.
Nikolas Cassidine: What about my brother?
Helena Cassadine: Oh, your half brother? Well, poor Lucky - his family has been unraveling for years. He's just jealous of you, Nikolas - Jealous of your strength and your position.
Nikolas Cassidine: As oppose to you, right who has my best interest at heart?
Helena Cassadine: I have loved you all of your life. You are the reason I live.
Jason Morgan: Don't go around threatening Carly, Sam.
Samantha McCall: She was threatening me.
Jason Morgan: OK, you know what, Sam? I... whatever. I don't care who started it. Carly's vicious when she feels threatened. She'll fight anyone, she'll do anything to hold on to her family, and that includes me. She's afraid you're going to take me away. You got a lot more trouble than you can handle already. So the next time Carly comes over here, do your self a favor - keep your mouth shut and let me deal with her.
Carly Corinthos: You have been shot at again. Jason has lost his mind for some reason over Sam, and I seem to be the only one who cares that she is a murderer and an arsonist. And you are telling me to leave this alone. But my family... it feels to me that my family is being threatened, and every instinct that I have is telling me to fight.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: Georgie, look, OK, for the last time, Dillon told you that he loves you, right?
Georgie Jones: Yeah, in a girl-next-door kind of way.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: Look, don't get yourself down.
Georgie Jones: It's call reality.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: Look, you guys - you guys almost did it so many times.
Georgie Jones: Yeah, but guys like the chase. I mean, they like what they can't have. "Yes, " "When? " "How soon? " I mean, it's a total turnoff.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: I think Sage is kind of in your face about it, thought, right?
Georgie Jones: That doesn't count. She's a walking billboard for sex. Guys are always into her.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: OK, well, Georgie, what do you think she does right?
Georgie Jones: Talks like a tramp, walks like a tramp, acts like a tramp. Therefore, she is a tramp.
Sonny Corinthos: Sister Agnes said I was asking for Carly the whole time I was lying shot in that convent. I was half delirious. I could've asked for anybody. I could've ask for Sam, even Brenda. Hell, I could asked for you to get me the hell out of there, but I didn't. I wanted to see Carly. I wanted to see her face. The Nuns called Carly to come, she came! that's what I can't get past. This was her chance to get out of my life, to let go. The more this goes on, Jason, the more I realize maybe, just maybe I couldn't let go any more than she could.
Jason Morgan: Sonny, just leave - leave things the way they are right now.
Sonny Corinthos: I want Carly as my wife, not my roommate! I want to be able to sleep with her. I want to be able to trust her and I want her to be able to trust me. If I tell her the truth and she leaves, at least it's resolved. And if she stays, at least I know that she did it knowingly with her eyes open because she wanted to.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You were trained from birth to take over the Cassadine empire. My brother raised you, and he loved you, Nikolas, beyond all reason. Unfortunately, he died. Your mother is Laura. She left you in Greece when you were very young.
Nikolas Cassidine: How did I end up here?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Obligation. You made friends here, Nikolas. You made good friends, they were your own age. And you had never had that experience before.
Nikolas Cassidine: Was I happy?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I think so - for a Cassadine. The Cassadine's have never been accused of looking at the bright side of things. You were kind, you were generous, you were loyal. You wanted to replace the Cassadine insanity with reason. You were our soul, our conscience.
Nikolas Cassidine: Like - like Emily is for the Quartermaines.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: In a way, yes.
Nikolas Cassidine: Yeah. I think I'm beginning to realize why we fell in love.
Faith Rosco: Oh - Oh, I am so sick of this male double standard! If you're a strong woman, you know, they call you a psychopath! But every single available man in town has lost it! They're completely obsessed with a good little girl like Courtney Cottontail and Little Lizzie Webber!
Sonny Corinthos: There were times, you know, when I wanted to be with you, and - I wouldn't admit it. Then I got shot, and I couldn't hide from it anymore.
Carly Corinthos: And that's when I realized without a doubt - I still loved you, and I always will.
Sonny Corinthos: You know when I woke up and saw you there, I thought I had died.
Carly Corinthos: Did you think you were in heaven or in hell?
Sonny Corinthos: I didn't care, you know, as long as you were with me.
Carly Corinthos: That is an excellent answer.
Deputy Sparks: Look, I need some proof that there's really a problem here. If not, I have orders to move the prisoner tonight.
Carly Corinthos: Orders? You have orders? Who are your orders from? Are they from Sam's doctors? Are they from your boss? Are they from God? Because I think you're a little out of your jurisdiction here. What the hell gives you the right to put a precious baby's life at risk? Is it your uniform? Because you know what? Sam wouldn't even be in this place if it wasn't for - Oh, I get it. I get it. You are trying to deliberately make Sam miscarry so the jury won't have any sympathy for her. You know what? The reason you came all the way up here from South Carolina is to put this woman at risk. It's to destroy her life, and destroy the life of her unborn child!
Deputy Sparks: I guess I can wait till morning.
Carly Corinthos: Yeah, why don't you wait someplace else?
Carly Corinthos: Deputy Sparks has left the building
Sonny Corinthos: Oh, That was... Thank you.
Carly Corinthos: You're welcome. It was kind of fun. I haven't pitched a fit in ages.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You were right. Sonny lied. He bought the inmate's confession. He perjured himself. He manipulated the system and he manipulated me. It's not the first time. But it's going to be the last.
Ric Lansing: What are you saying?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I want to help you take Sonny down for good.
Tracy Quartermaine: Maybe it's time you and I worked together.
Edward Quartermaine #3: I didn't realize that hell had frozen over.
Nikolas Cassidine: You love who I used to be.
Emily Quartermaine: Don't tell me what I feel. Right or wrong, sane or crazy, whether you ever remember us or not, I love you, Nikolas. I always will.
Emily Quartermaine: When Nikolas remembers...
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: He may never remember, Emily!
Emily Quartermaine: Yes, he will!
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: You are - you are breaking your own heart by building him up, and you are hurting Nikolas, Emily, by trying to hold on!
Emily Quartermaine: He isn't like Jason, Mom.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: No, no, he isn't. But the situation is. I couldn't let go of Jason. I forced him to destroy the best part of himself, just trying to break free.
Emily Quartermaine: You aren't responsible for Jason's choices.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: I know that. But I can wonder, can't I. wonder if I had given him room, if I had respected what he wanted to do, would we be more than just uncomfortable acquaintance? Would I see him more than three times a year? Every Christmas I wait for him to show up, my brain says it's not going to happen, but my heart doesn't get that message. After all these years, you are a young woman, Emily. Don't do this to yourself. Let Nikolas go!
Carly Corinthos: I am suggesting you use whatever influence you have over Ric to keep him from charging Sonny with perjury. Because the day he files those charges is the day that I tell the world that Sonny is Kirstina's father.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Sonny lied to me, he lied to the court. He made a fool out of everyone so his little pregnant girlfriend can skate on a murder charge. He thinks that he's above the law. He's not. And once he's in Prison, he will have a very difficult time of getting custody of anybody's baby. Go ahead, tell him.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I guess really what I want to know is, is what on earth entitles you to ask a favor of me after you lied to my face, induced me to suborn perjury all in the name of your pregnant little girlfriend? I mean, it begs the question why you would ask me a favor, right?
Sonny Corinthos: Mm-Hmm
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Because the truth is I am fresh out of favors for you.
Sonny Corinthos: Mm-Hmm
Alexis Davis Cassadine: The truth is, is that I am sick to death of you, Corinthos. I am sick of your self-imprtance and your sense of entitlement to do whatever you want to anybody you please whenever you choose because you think the world owes you a big, fat favor. You aren't any better than anybody else. You aren't any more special than anybody else. And if you happen to break one law too many and D. A. Lansing happens to find out about it and catch you, good for him.
Sonny Corinthos: Should I take that as a no, or...
Ric Lansing: You know, why don't you do us all a favor, Sonny, and just admit that you gave the order to blow up that ship and kill Faith Rosco?
Faith Rosco: Oh, get your filthy hands off me! I didn't do anything!
Lucky Spencer: Stop - look what I found.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Most district attorneys would opt to prevent a murder, instead of waiting for the murder to occur so they could arrest the perpetrator.
Ric Lansing: Really? And you would have handled it differently.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I would have had the police on board the yacht before it docked.
Ric Lansing: Of course.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Jax told you Faith shot him. You had plenty of evidence to arrest her.
Ric Lansing: Well, maybe that's why I had officers on the scene - to make sure that she wouldn't be harmed.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: What if there had been another ship in the vicinity? Innocent people could have - could have been killed when that yacht exploded.
Ric Lansing: There is no way that I could have known that Faith was going to sabotage the yacht.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You knew she was psychotic. You took an unacceptable risk.
Ric Lansing: All right, you know what? Here we are, right on schedule. For five minutes, you actually might have felt something for me. And that is just intolerable isn't it, Alexis, huh? Time to rebuild those walls.convince yourself that you don't want me to get close. That way, you can assure yourself that you were right all along. Right? I'm a repugnant, intolerable - what - what is the last one that you like to use? Complete waste of skin.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You put innocent people at risk when you bend the law to suit your own purposes. How many people who get close to you run the risk of being used in your campaign against your brother?
Ric Lansing: What is this? What happened?
Faith Rosco: Well, You've heard of a cat with nine lives, haven't you?
Ric Lansing: Lucky?
Lucky Spencer: A patrolman saw her climbing out of the harbor making a run for it after the explosion.
Faith Rosco: Yeah. I would like to report an attempted murder! Mr. Alcazar and Mr.corinthos are conspiring to kill me.
Faith Rosco: Oh, Justus, Justus, I need a lawyer.
Justice Ward: Look, I'm here to represent Mr. Morgan and Mr.corinthos.
Faith Rosco: Oh, Justus, please? For old times' sake?
Justice Ward: I can't do it. My hands are tied. It's a conflict of interest.
Faith Rosco: I knew you wanted me out of your life. I just didn't think you were going to let me die to see it happen.
Faith Rosco: I knew you'd come.
Justice Ward: No, you didn't. You don't look like you got much sleep.
Faith Rosco: No, I - I couldn't get the feel of you off my lips. How about you?
Justice Ward: Slept like a baby.
Faith Rosco: Liar.
Justice Ward: Faith, my nights of tossing and turning over you are long gone.
Faith Rosco: Like I said - liar.
Justice Ward: You don't know me as well as you think you do.
Faith Rosco: I know that you're on fire. You hide it well, but I can see it in your eyes.
Mary Bishop: You hate the idea of me and Nikolas together, but you can't get it out of your head. It makes you sick, it makes you angry, but it doesn't let you go. Isn't that right, Emily?
Emily Quartermaine: Yes, you lying sociopath. For once in your life, you spoke the truth.
Ric Lansing: Dinner and Dancing?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Never again.
Ric Lansing: Oh, come on, it was just a suggestion.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: So was a cruise on the Titanic.
Jason Morgan: This thing with Jax is getting serious. Isn't it?
Courtney Matthews: Yes, and it scares me to death.
Jason Morgan: Why would that scare you?
Courtney Matthews: Because I never thought that I would love anyone after loving you.
Nikolas Cassidine: You keep alluding to some - some mysterious danger, but you know, so far I haven't heard any facts.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, Nikolas, you've been at the mercy of a spoiled, manipulative, unstable woman for months.
Nikolas Cassidine: Oh, yeah? Which one?
Helena Cassadine: Mary Bishop - She's a poor, misguided creature. She's irrelevant. But Emily Quartermaine and her obsession with you - this is the real threat. Nikolas, the line between love and hate is thin one. Oh, Emily professes to have great love for you, but the minute she realizes that she's not going to get what she wants, that love will turn on a dime.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I have no personal fondness for Faith, but she is a human being. Do you have any ability to comprehend that at all?
Sonny Corinthos: When someone targets me and my family? Absolutely not.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You're a monster.
Georgie Jones: Dillon, what did the killer look like?
Dillon Quartermaine: I told you already. He had a white - a white mask, black clothes.
Georgie Jones: Really - really terrifying?
Dillon Quartermaine: I was so scared, I could barely move.
Georgie Jones: That's probably how Sage felt right before she died. Because I locked her in the freezer!
Heather Grant Webber: Not thinking of being a hero, are you?
Edward Quartermaine #3: I'm thinking we're being terrorized in our own home.
Heather Grant Webber: No one likes to feel helpless.
Edward Quartermaine #3: Certainly not a Quartermaine.
Heather Grant Webber: I feel a lot safer knowing I have you here to protect me. There's no one I'd rather have at my side.
Trent: Georgie hated Sage, ok?
Lucas Spencer: It's a big jump from hate to kill.
Trent: Georgie was out of control before they even left for the basement. Grabbing her arm, dragging her around? I mean...
Dillon Quartermaine: Trent, maybe all that's true, but Georgie didn't kill Sage.
Trent: I'm not saying that she meant to. They - they probably got into a heated argument and it got out of hand!
Dillon Quartermaine: It's not possible. It's not.
Trent: Well, why not? Huh? Georgie's your girlfriend, so she can do no wrong? Am I the only one who cares that Sage is dead here?
Lucas Spencer: No. God!
Dillon Quartermaine: Sage could be a pain. But she was also smart and she was funny and she'd surprise you with her ability to understand. Now, maybe she would've outgrown being a brat. Maybe she would've grown up to be somebody really special and really decent, but she's not going to have that chance because some psychopath decided to take her life! Now, I want to get this guy as much as the rest of you, but Georgie didn't do it, ok?
Lucas Spencer: Dillon's right. Georgie couldn't have cheated on a math test, let alone kill somebody and lie about it, Trent.
Trent: You know what? Fine. OK? Georgie's a saint. Sage killed herself. Is that what the story is here?
Mary Bishop: Emily stole you! She lied to you! Emily should be dead! And I'm going to be the one to kill her. I swear to God, I'm going to kill her! I'm going to kill her for you.
Sage Alcazar: You're the psycho. And when my uncle finds out that you locked me in a freezer, he's going to destroy you and your whole stupid family. You know he can do that. Are you sure you want to make him mad?
Georgie Jones: I'm not afraid of you, Sage.
Sage Alcazar: Fine. We'll do this your way. But don't say I didn't warn you.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: For Lila's sake, I did everything I could to keep an open mind to give you a fair chance to get that inheritance.
Tracy Quartermaine: You were against me form the start.
Edward Quartermaine #3: Can you blame her? She's supposedly searching for the most virtuous Quartermaine. She knew in advance it wouldn't be you.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: Unfortunately, you've done nothing except prove that you were completely conniving and dishonest. As everyone says that you are.
Tracy Quartermaine: What have I done specifically?
Felicia Scorpio Jones: You spied on your father. You tried to blackmail him by taking photographs of him and Heather.
Tracy Quartermaine: We're Quartermaines blackmail is how we all relate.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: You're greedy, untrustworthy, dishonest. I tried to give you the benefit of the doubt.
Tracy Quartermaine: You did not try very hard.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: I bent over backwards so that I wouldn't be accused of bias.
Tracy Quartermaine: Of course you're biased. You've hated me ever since I tried to protect my son from your daughter.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: Here we go.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: You were completely unfair to my daughter.
Tracy Quartermaine: Then maybe she should have taken the hint and stayed away, hmm?
Felicia Scorpio Jones: Your son loves my daughter.
Tracy Quartermaine: My son is teenager. He thinks with his hormones. I was just trying to get him to not make a terrible mistake.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: Why couldn't she have had a meltdown like this before we were eliminated?
Tracy Quartermaine: You can't disqualify me for opposing a teen romance.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: "Opposing"? You put naked pictures of my daughter on the hospital computer! Did you think that I would forget about that?
Tracy Quartermaine: I'm going to call a lawyer as soon as the lights go back on. I'm going to have that will declared invalid, and while I'm at it, I'm going to sue you for fraud!
Felicia Scorpio Jones: Are you threatening me?
Tracy Quartermaine: No! I'm making you are promise, and I always keep my word.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: Since when?
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: Since when?
Georgie Jones: Why Sage and why Trent? Because if it was just because they were alone. Then their deaths are completely my fault.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: No. Georgie, look, you - you have no blame in this, all right? I mean, God, you didn't even want to participate in the stupid seance anyway. And - and how were you supposed to know that some crazy freak was walking around knifing people, huh? Look, if anybody is to blame for this, it's me.
Emily Quartermaine: You don't have to worry. All right, Nikolas is fine. He's not in any danger.
Mary Bishop: Stop calling him that. His name is Connor, and he is in danger from you.
Emily Quartermaine: I know that you loved your husband, Mary, but Connor is dead.
Mary Bishop: Stop lying. You're not fooling anybody.connor knows the truth, I know the truth. You stole him! You ticked him. You held him prisoner in this house! And you filled his brain with lies. I'm going to have to save him form you once and for all, and for that to happen, you're going to have to die.
Emily Quartermaine: If all you want is Nikolas...
Mary Bishop: Connor.
Emily Quartermaine: Why did you kill Sage and Trent? What did a couple of teenagers ever do to you?
Mary Bishop: It wasn't personal. The guy shouldn't have been there. And he shouldn't of been helping you keep Connor locked up, either. But the girl - I thought she was you. I was pretty sure you were dead. It turns out she was someone helping you keep Connor away form me. That's not going to happen again.
Emily Quartermaine: All right, game over, you crazy bitch!
Mary Bishop: Do it. Do it. Kill me. As long as you know Connor will hate you for it.
Mac Scorpio: The first thing I'm going to do is make sure Faith is in a secure location. For all we know, the killer is here.
Faith Rosco: Look, I do a lot of things, but I don't kill kids, ok?
Mac Scorpio: Excuse me if I don't take your word on that.
Faith Rosco: Hey, what are you doing to do, put me in the freezer? That is where the killer found Sage.
Mac Scorpio: I want you out of the way until I figure out what the hell is going on in this house!
Felicia Scorpio Jones: Everyone has to try and stay calm.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: Well, that shouldn't be too difficult. It wouldn't be the first time a homicidal maniac has wandered around these grounds.
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: Well, at least this time it's not one of us.
Tracy Quartermaine: And is that supposed to be funny?
Tracy Quartermaine: Lorenzo Alcazar's niece was murdered in our home.
Dillon Quartermaine: Mom, you're trying to make sure that Lorenzo Alcazar blames Georgie for what happened to Sage. I don't know what it is. I don't know, but for some strange reason, you've got it in your head that you don't want Georgie and me to be together, and you're going to use anything you can, including Sage's death, to get what you want. You don't care about the consequences of what you do. You don't care about weight of the misery that you cause people. I don't know how you do it. How do you be so heartless? Do you even have compassion? Do you even have empathy? how about plan old common decency?
Tracy Quartermaine: I won't apologize for protecting you.
Dillon Quartermaine: All right, you know, fine. Then do me a favor - don't protect me. Don't do anything for me, don't do anything in my name. I don't know. Georgie and I are together, there's nothing you can do about that except turn around and walk away.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Hey, glad you called. Your timing was perfect. My plane just touched down. I had to go to South America on business. This isn't social, is it? What happened?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: You need to brace yourself, Lorenzo.
Lorenzo Alcazar: OK.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: This isn't going to be easy to say, so I'll just say it. Your niece is dead.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Sage is dead?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Lorenzo, I am so sorry.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Tell me what happened.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Brooke Lynn called me. When that phone rang in the middle of the night, I knew it couldn't be good. Sage was over at the Quartermaine house with Brookie and Dillon and Georgie and their friend Trent, too. They were trapped there because some truck crashed and blocked the main gate. Some maniac got in the house and started killing people. First Sage, then Trent, rest their souls. Apparently, this woman is a total nut job.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Woman?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Someone named Mary Bishop.
Jason Morgan: What's going on?
Dillon Quartermaine: First, I need to know if there's any sort of family discount. I'm kind of broke.
Jason Morgan: What kind of service are you looking to buy.
Dillon Quartermaine: Protection. We got into some trouble with Lorenzo Alcazar, and I think it might be life-threatening.
Jason Morgan: All right, just tell me what happened.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: We agreed to lock his niece, Sage, in a freezer and then somebody murdered her.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Alexis Davis got away with Luis murder. Mary Bishop is not going to do the same with his daughter's. One way or the other, every person responsible for her death is going to pay.
Ric Lansing: Don't do it.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Do what?
Ric Lansing: You want to avenge your niece.
Lorenzo Alcazar: I want justice to be served.
Ric Lansing: Yeah, well, that's my department, Mr. Alcazar, not yours. So I'm only going to warn you once. Stay away from Mary Bishop.
Emily Quartermaine: I've been searching my heart trying to find some sympathy for you, a little compassion. And I imagine that you weren't always like this. It must have been Connor's loss that took your sanity. I try to tell my myself that you aren't responsible for you actions and find excuses for poor, pathetic Mary. And then I realize that that's the exact mistake I have made all along - giving you the benefit of the doubt, looking for the deeper motive. My pity for you gave you the time you needed to keep Nikolas isolated and dependent on you, time for you try and have his baby, time enough for you to feel entitled to him. You are no one to feel sorry for, Mary Bishop. You are a loathsome, cunning, dangerous woman, and I hate you with every fiber of my being. More than anything, I wish that bullet had found its mark. You don't deserve to live.
Mitchell Coleman: Mrs. Corinthos. You're the last person I expected to hear from.
Carly Corinthos: Yeah, well, um, I need you to do something for me.
Mitchell Coleman: Let me guess. Well, you - role of happy little housewife ain't cutting it? You got a little itch that needs scratching or something?
Carly Corinthos: I will never, ever be that desperate. I need you to find someone for me.
Mitchell Coleman: So, what's in this for me, aside from like, your everlasting gratitude?
Carly Corinthos: 10 grand.
Mitchell Coleman: Come on. A good-looking chick like you can come up with something a little bit more creative than that. Can't you? Huh?
Carly Corinthos: I think you're about to be a dead man.
Mitchell Coleman: How do you figure that, hmm?
Carly Corinthos: Because my husband is standing right behind you.
Jason Morgan: I'm trying to do what's best for this child.
Sonny Corinthos: You mean my daughter?
Jason Morgan: No one's forgetting that, Sonny.
Sonny Corinthos: I want to be the one making decisions for her, you know?
Jason Morgan: OK. But, you know, children are dependent on the adults who are with them. Decisions are going to have to be made around the clock. You know that.
Sonny Corinthos: You just come over and ask me, then.
Samantha McCall: Sonny, you won't be there when she takes her first step or says her first word or gets sick or needs a ride to a play date because you can't be there. You have a wife and kids of your own.
Sonny Corinthos: How many times do I got to say this? This is my child, too, as much as Michael and Morgan.
Samantha McCall: Yeah, but she's not going to be a part of your family! Let's face it, she's not going to be a priority. She's going to be the kid you visit when you have time off from Michael and Morgan. We both know there's a lot more to parenting than biology, Sonny.
Sonny Corinthos: Oh. So you're just going to take the place of the father? Is that what's going on here?
Jason Morgan: No, I'm just the one who's going to be here all the time.
Samantha McCall: Jason will be here living day in and day out with me and your baby during the time that you're supposed to be here, and that's the reality of it, Sonny. You can fight it all you want, but at some point you're going to have to deal with it.
Samantha McCall: [to Jason] We want to have a baby, not qualify for a home loan.
Sonny Corinthos: My life doesn't leave room for betrayal.
Samantha McCall: No, it goes deeper than that. You can't stand to be disobeyed.
Sonny Corinthos: Jason does what he wants. I give him orders. He doesn't always follow them
Samantha McCall: You mean like when you told him to stay away from Courtney?
Sonny Corinthos: Yeah, that's one. There's other ones, you know, but we get past them.
Samantha McCall: Really? Well, this time is different.
Sonny Corinthos: Why?
Samantha McCall: Why?
Sonny Corinthos: Yeah?
Samantha McCall: Because if you see Jason as someone who's going to keep you from your daughter, you're going to see him as an enemy.
Ric Lansing: What do you think?
Lucky Spencer: Mary's protecting her self my acting crazy. Everything she said and did was an act.
Ric Lansing: Yeah, she's definitely setting herself up for a plea of insanity.
Lucky Spencer: What are the chances of her getting away with this?
Ric Lansing: From what I just saw? A very good one.
Faith Rosco: If we cannot get away together, I want you out of this. I will face Sonny alone.
Justice Ward: And, what, let him murder you in cold blood? That's not going to happen!
Faith Rosco: I knew the risks going in, ok? I have pushed the guy once too often. Six moths ago, I would not have cared if I died. But now, I going to miss you.
Justice Ward: You're not going to die, Faith.
Justice Ward: I'm going to get away from Sonny, and somehow we will find each other, ok?
Faith Rosco: That's wishful thinking, Justus.
Justice Ward: Sonny owes me.
Faith Rosco: You're not really buying into this man-oh-honor crap, are you? How do you think he survived so long? He eliminates anyone who double-crosses him, whether he owes them or not.
Justice Ward: It is my choice to help you. If I die in the process, at least I know I died for a noble cause.
Samantha McCall: You know, for two guys who work so closely together, you and Sonny are nothing alike.
Jason Morgan: No reason we should be.
Samantha McCall: Yeah, I know. I guess it's the way you're different that impresses me. Sonny thinks he owns people, and you encourage them to be themselves.
Jason Morgan: It's easier.
Samantha McCall: On everyone. Jason, thank you. Thank you for every thing that you have done for me, and I just want you to know that I've never felt so protected in my life.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: [speaking about Sonny and Jason] I'm just waiting for them to move to Vermont and open up a Bed and Breakfast.
Carly Corinthos: So, what about family? You have a wife? You got kids?
John Durant: You haven't done your homework, have you?
Carly Corinthos: Well, you never ask a question if you don't know the answer.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: I never knew Sage's uncle had a heart until I saw it breaking.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Well, even tough guys have hearts.
Carly Corinthos: I just really need some time to think. You know, I need to figure out what to do next. Do I really want to know my father? Do I want to know him badly enough to jeopardize the life that we have, you know, our family, the one that we've made together, just so I can reach out to a stranger? I don't know. And if I don't - you know, if I let this go and I just drop the whole thing, then won't I have regrets?
Sonny Corinthos: I wish I had all the answer for you, but, you know, all I can tell you is you got to trust yourself.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: What was I thinking? Showing up at your door, trying to reach out to you, one human being to another in your time of grief?
Lorenzo Alcazar: You came here because you feel guilty for asking me to sign over the rights to my dead niece's poem before the dirt is even fresh on her grave.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: You really are the heartless bastard that everybody warned me about!
Lorenzo Alcazar: And all those warnings just made you want to fly closer to the flame. Don't blame me if you got burned.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Why are you doing this? I wanted you, you wanted me back.
Lorenzo Alcazar: And now I've had you. Let's just say we satisfied our curiosity and just leave it at that, all right?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Gladly.
Lorenzo Alcazar: I owe you a profound apology.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Gee, I wonder why. Maybe because you used me for sex and then pitched me out into the night like yesterday's garbage?
Carly Corinthos: You have been wonderful. Thank you.
Sonny Corinthos: Well, that's part of the job.
Carly Corinthos: Oh, right, because loving me is a job, hmm?
Sonny Corinthos: No. Just sometimes, you know, but there are great benefits.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Look, Lorenzo Alcazar was out for blood. Hey, he stated in front of a room full of police officers that he was going to exact revenge on Mary Bishop for Sage's death, and because of you, he now knows that if this goes to trial, she would probably be found not guilty because of reason of insanity.
Ric Lansing: Right.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: He's not going to let it go unpunished. He has all the money in the world, he has God knows how many hit men on his payroll. Do you honestly think it's so hard to believe that he would get someone to give her the wrong medication when he was conveniently out of town.
Ric Lansing: Ok, It's plausible argument, I'll give you that. But I can't help suspecting that this takes the pressure off your nephew and his fiancee and conveniently places the blame on a man that you can't stand - a man, incidentally, who's the brother of another man that you hated and just happened to kill.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Must you always throw that in my face?
Samantha McCall: You're overreacting. I was having some pains. Jason took me to the hospital, where Dr. Meadows examined me and assured me that everything was fine with the baby. End of story.
Sonny Corinthos: Well, I had a right to know.
Samantha McCall: Excuse me! You were in Manhattan on a private getaway with your wife. I really didn't think you wanted a call from your pregnant ex-mistress to tell you I was having some cramps.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: What?
Sonny Corinthos: The buttons are straight, the jacket looks really nice, but the hair is kind of - what were you guys doing? You guys rolling around in Ric's office?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Of course not.
Sonny Corinthos: Or maybe on the desk? Were you guys doing it on the desk? May be a little uncomfortable.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Don't be ridiculous.
Sonny Corinthos: Well, I mean, it's not uncomfortable? You like doing it on the desk? Well, it makes sense because, you know, you and Ric are working all the time, so on the desk - you know what I mean?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: How much longer is this going to go on?
Sonny Corinthos: Uh, not too long. Your earring. I think you're missing an earring. You might've left it in Ric's office. Maybe in the broom closet? Or in the back seat of his car?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Maybe.
Sonny Corinthos: Maybe?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Maybe.
Sonny Corinthos: Right.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Or maybe it's on the sofa or the patio. It could be in the bedroom. But we kind of find that boring. And if it's not in the apartment, then it could be in the elevator. Any number of elevators, all over town.
Sonny Corinthos: Whew. Wow.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Your brother is gifted.
Sonny Corinthos: Hmm.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: More than you could ever imagine. He satisfies me - no, he rocks me, body and soul, on every level, like no man that I have ever known.
Ric Lansing: Was good for me, too.
Sonny Corinthos: This offer is one-time only. Take the plea bargain, go to prison, I won't have you killed.
Faith Rosco: I plan to live to a ripe old age, Mr. Corinthos, and not in a prison cell. But if that doesn't work out, if I'm dead no matter what I do, I'll go down fighting you and Jason all the way.
Faith Rosco: Ok. Let's say I cop a plea. I go to prison for a little while. Do you promise that I won't slip on the soap and accidentally break my neck or wind up with rat poison in my soup?
Sonny Corinthos: I'm not going to have you killed in prison. I can't speak for anybody else. You have a talent for making enemies.
Faith Rosco: Well, we all have our gifts.
Faith Rosco: Tell me again why I should take the plea.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: So a jury doesn't hear Jax testify that you abducted and shot him.
Faith Rosco: I shot him in the leg. I didn't do any permanent damage. He should thank me.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: A jury won't hear it that way, I promise.
Faith Rosco: Why not?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Because juries aren't usually made up of criminally insane sociopaths.
Faith Rosco: Hmm. Just checking. Fine. I'll take the plea.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Good choice.
Faith Rosco: To aggravated assault. Right? I get sentenced to seven to ten, and I get two, right?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I'll do my best.
Justice Ward: The van's going to be here any minute. But once you get out of pentonville, we're going to be together of the rest of our lives.
Faith Rosco: Do you think Alexis got the two years?
Justice Ward: She might have. She's a great attorney.
Faith Rosco: OK. Two years is nothing, right?
Justice Ward: I'm going to be here, Faith. I'm not going anywhere.
Faith Rosco: Say goodbye now.
Justice Ward: I can't, no.
Faith Rosco: Listen to me.
Justice Ward: No.
Faith Rosco: Listen to me. When I step out there, I am going to shut down. OK, where I'm going, The world out there, I cannot afford to feel anything. So kiss me now. Say goodbye to the woman you love, the woman who loves you. because once I step out there. She's gone.
Steven Lars Webber: I am a fully practicing physician. Forensics is just a sideline.
Carly Corinthos: You're investigating my husband. That's why you've been so nice to me and my kids. That's why you've been so friendly.
Steven Lars Webber: I had no idea you'd be at the docks. I had no idea you'd be at Jake's, I swear!
Carly Corinthos: Ric Lansing is my husband's half brother, he is trying to put him in jail!
Steven Lars Webber: Look, I had no idea!
Carly Corinthos: It's going to be your job to help him!
Steven Lars Webber: Carly, it's not like that.
Carly Corinthos: OK, listen to me - do not approach me ever, ever again. Do not talk to my kids. If you see us on the street, you walk to the other side. We cannot be friends. We can't even be polite. Hello! Look at me!
Steven Lars Webber: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Carly Corinthos: If you are still too drunk to understand what is going on - pay attention to me. You pay attention. I have no use for cops.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Ten years in real time.
Faith Rosco: You promised me two years.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I promised you to do the best that I couuld.
Faith Rosco: I wouldn've done better in front of a jury.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: No, I don't think you would have.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You are a liar. OK? You did this to me on purpose, right? you set me up! You wanted me conviceted to pay me back for shooting jax. You lying bitch! My God, do you know - This was a set up from the start, wasn't it? The three of you want me to disapear.
Justice Ward: It's all right Faith.
Faith Rosco: No, no, no, no. But I will not diseappear. I will come back, and I will hunt you down, all three of you!
Justice Ward: Faith don't say another word!
Faith Rosco: My God, I will make you beg for mercy. You will ask me, and I will give you more pain than you ever imagined. I will take the ones you love and I will make it so you never, never see them again.
Sonny Corinthos: Faith ain't even in the prison van, and you're already trying to accuse me of killing her.
Ric Lansing: Well, it a reasonable conclusion, isn't it? I mean, you've wanted Faith out of the way for a long time. Why would you let a small obstacle like prison to get in the way?
Emily Quartermaine: I already knew...
Nikolas Cassidine: What?
Emily Quartermaine: How much I loved you. But I never understood how much I needed you until this very minute.
Nikolas Cassidine: I waited too long to make you my wife. I'm not going to let anything stand in the way of that.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Let's just say I've learned how to play the game.
Faith Rosco: Hmm. Matter of necessity, I guess. I guess you had to, you know, when Luke ran off and left you to shift for yourself.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Luke will be back.
Faith Rosco: You're delusional.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Am I?
Faith Rosco: Mm-Hmm.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Well, How about you? Didn't I hear something about how Justus was kicked off your case due to a conflict of interest?
Faith Rosco: So what?
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: So, if you actually think that you're in a relationship or that he's going to wait for you, think again.
Faith Rosco: We're going to run away together.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Oh, yeah. He ran, all right - In the opposite direction.
Faith Rosco: You better watch your mouth, Buttercup.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Hey! You watch it! People in prison learn to hit back twice as hard.
Jason Morgan: I'm not saying that Sam's right. I am saying that she's scared and she's hurt, and what do you do when you're scared? You either run or you fight. Is that what you really want?
Sonny Corinthos: No, I don't want to hurt Sam. I just want to protect my place as the baby's father.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, go ahead. Defy my wishes. Marry. Embrace happiness when and where you can because your joy is fleeting. My curse is upon you, Nikolas and Emily. Your joy will bring nothing but pain and sorrow to you and yours for as long as you both shall live.
Jason Morgan: Do you mind if I ask you a question about your brother?
Elizabeth Webber: No. What do you want to know about Steven?
Jason Morgan: Well, is he a doctor first or a cop?
Elizabeth Webber: He's a doctor, like our father and our grandfather. Healing people is the most important thing to Steven.
Edward Quartermaine #3: You ever pull another stunt like this, you'll wind up in a bed full of tarantulas.
Helena Cassadine: Well, I had nothing to do with this. No, the curse has a life of its own.
Edward Quartermaine #3: The curse is nonsense, and you know it. And if you ever do anything like this, something like this again, I will...
Helena Cassadine: You have had a difficult evening. As we all have. But for future reference, it's never wise to threaten a Cassadine.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: My mother and father met when Mikkos was still married to Helena, and they fell in love. Mikkos was as in love as any Cassadine man is capable of being - present company excluded, of course. He wanted to marry my mother. He asked Helena for a divorce. She, of course, denied it and placed a curse on them instead.
Emily Quartermaine: Then what happened?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: My mother started having mysterious accidents. She started having illnesses that no one could explain. She was a very strong and independent woman who just suddenly lost her spirit. She was even afraid to leave the house. So Mikkos took her away. He took her to Europe, and she came back and it was as if nothing had ever happened, she was fine.
Nikolas Cassidine: So you think Mikkos did something to lift the curse?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: He did something. He went somewhere, talked to somebody - whatever it was, it went away.
Ric Lansing: But the curse was eradicated and your mother was fine.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: She was fine until Helena...
Ric Lansing: Until Helena what?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: The curse didn't produce the results that Helena wanted. So she took matters into her own hands - literally - and she slit my mother's throat.
Justice Ward: I've done a lot of things I'm not proud of. I'm not a good man.
Edward Quartermaine #3: Only a good man can say that.
Georgie Jones: I've been thinking about Sage. She thought she had forever. Do you know what I mean? And she didn't. And if she knew this was her last year on earth, would she have lived it differently?
Dillon Quartermaine: Probably.
Georgie Jones: OK, I know the chances are not very good that I'm - are good that I'm not going to die in a year, but if I did, would it matter that I got straight A's? No. I think what matter is who you love and how you show it.
Tracy Quartermaine: What on earth are you doing?
Helena Cassadine: This book contains information that could reverse the curse that I put on Nikolas and Emily.
Tracy Quartermaine: Oh. Any minute now, I'm going to wake up and I'm going to realize that this all has been one ridiculous nightmare. I am not really standing here next to a woman who puts poxes on people.
Helena Cassadine: Knowledge is power, and a lack of it, weakness. What is done can be undone. I am not going to take that chance again.
Tracy Quartermaine: Again?
Helena Cassadine: Oh, my husband found this book, and in it he found the information he needed to reverse the curse that I put on that creature that he impregnated with our pathetic little mouse Alexis. Neither Nikolas nor Emily can be allowed to see this. Not ever.
Tracy Quartermaine: What about your grandson? You know, the one you profess to love so much.
Helena Cassadine: Oh, I do love Nikolas with all of my heart. What about him?
Tracy Quartermaine: Hello? Have you forgotten you put a pox on him, too?
Helena Cassadine: Nikolas made a choice. Unfortunately, it was the wrong choice. He needs to realize that he can never have a life with Emily. And anyone who ever gets in my way is going to be very very sorry indeed.
Tracy Quartermaine: All right, I wanted to stop the marriage. But I had no idea how dangerous Helena could be.
Emily Quartermaine: Or maybe you just didn't care, Tracy, as long as you believed Helena could help you get what you want.
Tracy Quartermaine: I'm not the only one in my family that went along with Helena. But when she started hurling curses and you ended up in the hospital, well, I didn't sign up for anybody to die.
Emily Quartermaine: Why should I believe that?
Tracy Quartermaine: Did I bring you the book? I certainly didn't have to.
Emily Quartermaine: Tracy, maybe it's a trick and you're still working with Helena.
Tracy Quartermaine: Look, Missy, I made a mistake teaming up with Helena. I am trying to fix it. You can either believe it or not. Look at you! You're swooning around whining about some spider bite, and have you - have you bothered to thank me for risking my life for stealing that stinking book from Helena Cassadine? I didn't have to drag it all the way out here, but I did. I didn't have to tell you what she was doing, but I did. I gave you ammunition. Now, why don't you find a way to use it. Why don't you get up off your butt, fix yourself a drink, and fight like a Quartermaine.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I know what you're doing to Emily - Exactly what you tired to do to my mother.
Helena Cassadine: Your mother was a gaudy bauble, something to be purchased for amusement and then tossed away.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Sadly for you, my father was in love with her. That broke the curse.
Helena Cassadine: And they couldn't stop me, could they? Neither could you.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Nope, not that time. Emily won't end up like my mother.
Helena Cassadine: Oh?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Even if I have to kill you myself.
Helena Cassadine: Your ridiculous threats are as empty and as meaningless as your life, Natasha. Now, you know better than to stand against me. You're wasting my time.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Not that you have much left.
Helena Cassadine: You silly little mouse. I made you an orphan, remember? Now, would you like me to do the same for your precious little Kirstina?
Carly Corinthos: You don't - you don't know how many times I've fantasized about this, about my father holding me. It's like fate is playing a cruel joke on me or something.
John Durant: Why would you say that, Carly?
Carly Corinthos: Because I can't be in your life, no matter how much I may want to. We cannot have a relationship. I cannot see you anymore.
Helena Cassadine: I'm telling you what you need to know. Whatever you think you've learned about breaking the curse. I assure you that that's only wishful thinking. If you pursue this, there will be only one outcome. Your precious Emily will die.
Samantha McCall: Your underestimating the connection between a daughter and a father if you think Carly's going to be able to walk away from this and never look back, never wonder, never wish. Sonny, you need to end this, because if you let it slide and something happens to you or your family or to Jason, it's going to be on you.
Helena Cassadine: Even if you could break the curse, remember what happened to Alexis' mother.
Nikolas Cassidine: Are you threatening to kill Emily?
Helena Cassadine: I'm merely pointing out that we learn from history or we're doomed to repeat it.
Luke Spencer: Oh, Blaze, please be reasonable. You're a convicted felon. I'm wanted for unlawful flight and God knows what else. We got to lay low, and the only way to lay low in Port Charles is to be homeless.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Since I have known you, I have been trapped in a burning building, stalked, kidnapped, and left to die in Wyndemere. I woke up next to a dead man, been convicted of murder, and spent time in a state penitentiary! But I will not have cockroaches crawling on me! That is where I draw the line!
Luke Spencer: They won't, no more. I promise you. Trust me. I'll just fumigate the cardboard condo and you can get back to your beauty sleep.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: I don't think you're quite hearing me. You see, I would rather turned myself in and be lethally injected for a crime I didn't commit than spend one more minute as a homeless person! Now, either you find us a nicer, cleaner disguise or you're on your own.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You need to get a job, Carly. You need to take up knitting, you know, run a marathon, volunteer at the kid's school. Just stop obsessing.
Carly Corinthos: Hey, don't change the subject.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You are the subject. You've whittled your life away to just this one little, narrow focus which happens to be your ex-husband. He's already the center of his own universe. Don't make him the center of yours.
Jason Morgan: [about Durant] He just threatened Courtney. Can I kill him now?
Sonny Corinthos: Don't tempt me.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks Alcazar: You were the one person that I thought I could depend on. It never even occurred to me that you would turn your back on me - and Lila Rae.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: Don't invoke Lila's name to manipulate me.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks Alcazar: It happens to be my daughter's name.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: You know what I mean. You're contesting the Will to be spiteful, and I won't be a part of that.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks Alcazar: You know what you're a fool to be with Carly. Sonny will always be in her blood, she will always go running back to him - In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if she's with him right now.
James Craig: Well, Ms. Davis, I have to question the judgment of a woman who goes from a round of chemo directly to the woods in the middle of an island to pick wild flowers with her daughter.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: My daughter had a school project.
James Craig: All right, well, at least the trip wasn't completely wasted - She could've put flowers on your grave.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: What a lovely sentiment.
James Craig: Well, it could very well have been reality. Are you always so reckless?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Are you always so rude?
Jenny: Tracy the phones are not working, what do we do?
Tracy Quartermaine: Breath!
Jenny: I am, oh
Jenny: Man that was some screem you out, out there
Tracy Quartermaine: Sorry it's an old habit of mine every time I fall flat on my back
Jenny: I'm going to get you some more dry cloths, okay?
Tracy Quartermaine: Oh my God, I'm soaked
Jenny: I know I'm going to get you dry in just a minuet
Tracy Quartermaine: uh uh, It's not from the rain, my water broke
Jenny: Oh my God!
Dr. Noah Drake: [holding up a platter] Just one more, come on, you'll hurt my feelings!
Barbara Jean Spencer: Oh, they're very nice, but if I eat one more, I won't have any room for that fabulous dinner you had planned.
Dr. Noah Drake: Oh, there's always time for dinner, and, um... other things.
Barbara Jean Spencer: Other things?
Dr. Noah Drake: [suavely] Yeah, if you know what I'm talking about.
Barbara Jean Spencer: Yeah. We'll talk about that later, okay?
Dr. Noah Drake: Too bad, it's the only thing on my mind at the moment.
Sonny Corinthos: My relationship with Sam is none of your business, Carly. Stay away from her.
Carly Corinthos: You're not having a relationship. You're sleeping with Sam because she's a dead ringer for Brenda.
Sonny Corinthos: Is that what you told her?
Carly Corinthos: I felt she had a right to know.
Sonny Corinthos: Really?
Carly Corinthos: Mm-hmm.
Sonny Corinthos: Well, you're wrong, as usual, because when I see Sam, I don't see Brenda. I see a beautiful, passionate woman who doesn't lie about who she is or what she wants. Nice change of pace, isn't it?
Carly Corinthos: Hmm. Well, if she has any sense she will be gone by the time you get upstairs, and if she is dumb enough to stay, then she deserves the heart-stomping that she will eventually get with you. She's not good enough, Sonny. She's not going to be enough for you, because no one ever is. That hole inside of you is so deep and it is so embedded, no woman could ever hope to fill it up. She isn't going to be good enough. She's not going to be loyal enough, and she certainly will not be strong enough to ease your pain or to fix you in all the ways that you are broken. You are wrecked inside, Sonny, and eventually you wreck everyone around you. But not my children, Sonny. You will not do that to my boys.
Sonny Corinthos: Forget about them. As of now, you have no children.
Carly Corinthos: Don't you even try it. Michael and Morgan are mine. I carried them, I gave birth to them, and I love them more than anything in this world. And you...
Sonny Corinthos: You don't love anybody but yourself and Alcazar.
Carly Corinthos: Oh, you are so full of it.
Sonny Corinthos: Kids are just something you can...
Carly Corinthos: You...
Lorenzo Alcazar: Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Sonny Corinthos: Do me a favor, Al? Keep your slut away from me.
Carly Corinthos: Oh, you sick - you sick bastard! let me go! You're sick!
Sonny Corinthos: Yeah, yeah, yeah, take hold of her.
Carly Corinthos: Shut up! Pig! Let me go! Let go!
