THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Okay, I am not in the mood, jax. Not at all. No, no, no, I-I came to apologize.
[ Sighs ] Okay, go on. I am sorry that I made josslyn’s special dinner awkward. I hope you plan on apologizing to josslyn, too. Yes, of course I’m gonna apologize to her. I — c-can we just start over? Mrs. Corinthos. Mr. Buscema. Well, uh, welcome to the metro court, it’s an honor to have you. Well, I’m honored to be your guest. I was just telling the groom I received your “save the date” this morning — hand-delivered, no less. Well, I had to make sure you got it. Consider this my rsvp. I wouldn’t miss it for the world. And I’m sure the late mr. Corinthos’ other business associates won’t, either. Jason: Excuse us.
[ Exhales sharply ] Okay, if that guy is any indication of the guest list, our daughter is not coming within a mile of your wedding. Uh, alexis? There’s two visitors here to see you. No way. Spencer?
[ Gasps ] You’re all grown up. Well, it depends on who you ask. So, any rules in here about hugging your favorite loved ones? Since when do you care about rules? Yeah, good point. Oh.
[ Laughs ] Hey, your father said you were back in town, but he didn’t say you were visiting here. Yeah, my father doesn’t really keep up with what I’m doing these days, and, uh, I intend to keep it that way. Hi, sweet girl. I miss you so much. And ever since this was left for me, it’s all I can think about. Such a cruel reminder of how I couldn’t protect you. Of how my spite pointed ryan in your direction. How he took your life out of some… sick desire to please me. I will always regret…
[ Sighs ] I don’t even know where to begin. I have so many regrets.
[ Footsteps approaching ] Nikolas: So do I. That ought to do the trick. What are you doing, maxie? Oh. Can I help you somehow? Oh, no, thank you. Um, I thought I left something here, but it seems to be gone. They probably have a lost and found. Oh, yes. I’ll check there. Last time I saw you, you were leaving town. Did that help? Afraid not. That’s the thing with some problems — no matter where you go, they will follow you there. Dr. Obrecht: What is this problem you need solved? He’s alive, aunt liesl. Peter? Are you certain? Yeah, I’m certain. He’s here in nixon falls. You and — and nina aren’t just business associates, are you? I’d like to think we’re also friends. “Friends.” What do I get the feeling she doesn’t like you very much?
[ Laughs ] Well, you certainly don’t mince words. Do you, mike? I call it… the way I see it, and the way I see it is… you make nina very uncomfortable. So, I think it’s probably time for you to get out of town. And tonight’s winning numbers are 18, 18 55, 39, 71, and 43 we won! Yes! Noooo… noooo… noooo… quick, the quicker picker upper! Bounty picks up messes quicker and each sheet is 2x more absorbent, so you can use less. I’ll hold onto that. Bounty, the quicker picker upper. I thought I was managing my moderate to severe crohn’s disease. Then I realized something was missing… …me. My symptoms were keeping me from being there for her. So, I talked to my doctorand learned humira is the #1 prescribed biologic for people with crohn’s disease. The majority of people on humira saw significant symptom relief in as little as 4 weeks. And many achieved remission that can last.
Humira can lower your ability
to fight infections.
Serious and sometimes
as have blood, liver,
and nervous system problems,
serious allergic reactions,

Tell your doctor
if you’ve been to areas
where certain fungal
infections are common
and if you’ve had tb,
are prone to infections,
or have flu-like symptoms
Don’t start humira
if you have an infection. Be there for you, and them. Ask your gastroenterologist about humira. With humira, remission is possible.

Now with a new look. Hwein. I knew we hadn’tseen the last of him. Has he made contact? Unfortunately, and he’s as malignant as ever. If you’re able to speak freely, he must no longer be with you. Well, he’s just outside, so I have to make this fast. Nina, if you are in jeopardy, you must call for help. No, I’m not. I mean, he’s made threats, of course, but I’m not in any immediate danger. Not yet. So, you haven’t called authorities?
No, I haven’T. Good. A jailhouse is too good for peter august. I have much better plans for him. Oh, nina and I are not exactly friends. Yeah, I got that impression. We’re more like professional rivals. So, any tension you sense is nothing more than healthy competition, mike. You think you’re a good liar, peter? You got a better shot of playing the lottery than playing me. Phyllis: Mike. Is that how you treat nina’s guest? Well, uh, at any rate, I’m happy to see you’re back. Thank you, dr. Gatlin-holt. Please. I do love being a doctor — I love it. But after everything we’ve been through, I’d hope you’d call me “austin.” Of course. Yeah, I’m sorry. I just — I have a lot on my mind right now. Of course. Anyway, goodbye, doc– [ Laughs ] Uh, austin.
[ Laughing ] Yeah. Bye. Well, well. You’re making yourself quite at home here, huh? Just a routine follow-up. Let’s get back to business. Yeah, now you’re talking my language. Um, this document… it’s gold. It’s your ticket to ride. That guy is a colleague. Oh, give me a break. Everything about that guy screams “gangster.”
[ Scoffs ] Go to hell, jax. “Buscema”? That’s his name? What, you don’t think I know who the five families are? Yeah, I-I learned everything about them when sonny became josslyn’s step-father, and I just gave myself a little refresher course when that joey novak guy approached her. Okay. Not only will josslyn be at my wedding, she’s the maid of honor. You need to realize that josslyn is an adult, and she gets to make her own decisions. Yes. But josslyn’s decisions should be informed ones, don’t you think? And won’t she be heartbroken when she finds out she’ll be standing up for a sham marriage? Thank you for meeting with me, mr. Morgan. I’ll be brief. Like you, I’m concerned about the novak organization’s lack of control over joey. Approaching mrs. Corinthos’ daughter…
[ Sighs ] Unacceptable. I intend to make my feelings known to vincent. Well, like you, mr. Buscema — like any of us… I won’t tolerate my family being threatened — especially now that my family and mrs. Corinthos’ are about to become one and the same. And I respect that. How did you find me here? No, do– don’t tell me. You asked my bodyguard. Don’t be angry at him. It was my fault. Oh, I’m aware. I knew I should have hired my own. I actually offered the job to shawn butler, but he’s busy tracking down whoever framed him for trying to kill hayden barnes. I’m not here to talk about shawn butler. You shouldn’t be here at all. You know very well it’s dangerous for us to be seen together. I only need a minute, and I figured we wouldn’t have much of an audience here. Well, we somehow had an audience at the gallery, didn’t we? Well, you’re here now, so you may as well say whatever it is you came to say. No, no, I feel bad for intruding. What is that? It’s just a little gift our stalker left for me after they torched my car.
[ Sighs ] I’m so sorry. I just — I convinced myself that spencer was the stalker.
[ Sighs ] I was wrong. Very wrong. Which leaves us with one very alarming fact. This danger is real. Aunt alexis, I’d like to introduce you to my girlfriend, esme prince. You brought your girlfriend to prison.
[ Chuckles ] How lovely. Oh, nice to meet you. Pleasure’s all mine. N sivelyeffusive about you. Ah. Well, I’m afraid he’s been utterly tightlipped about you. Why are you keeping her a secret? Yes, spence. Why is that? Spence? So, it’s true. Ryan chamberlain is here. Every single day. Someone should make sure that freak of nature never draws another free breath. At philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. The recipe we invented over 145 years ago and me…the world’s best, and possibly only, schmelier. Philadelphia. Schmear perfection. Dull skin? Swipe it away. Garnier brightening micellar water. Now with vitamin C. Micelles work like a magnet. In one swipe gently cleanse, remove makeup, and brighten. Micellar water with vitamin C. By garnier, naturally. (Lucky) ooh! Me charms! (Kids) quick, get em! Nooooooooooo (lucky) new planets that can duplicate, and rockets help me race! You’ll never get me lucky charms, as I zip around through space! I love me lucky charms, they’re galactically delicious! We women are in the know about everything. So why don’t we know how much estrogen is in our birth control pill? Get to know lo lo. Lo loestrin fe provides pregnancy prevention with the lowest daily dose of estrogen. That’s so lo lo.
Serious risks of birth control
pills include blood clots,
stroke, and heart attack,
which can be fatal.
Smoking increases these risks,
especially if you are over 35,
so lo loestrin fe users
should not smoke.
Don’t take the pill if you’ve
had any of these conditions
or high blood pressure
that medicine can’t control,
unexplained vaginal bleeding,
are taking hepatitis c drugs,
or if you could be pregnant. Ask your doctor about lo lo. The birth control pill with the lowest daily dose of estrogen. Are you in the lo? You try to stay ahead of the mess but scrubbing still takes time. Now there’s dawn powerwash dish spray. It’s the faster way to clean as you go. Just spray, wipe and rinse. It cleans grease five times faster. Dawn powerwash now available in free & clear. (Vo) single-serve fancy feast petitesare just for her. Just the right size. Just the right gourmet flavor. No artificial preservatives or colors. Just what she needs. Just what you want. Fancy feast petites. Love is in
the details. (Geri) I have copd. Because I smoked. So I have to pace myself. My tip is, if you’re having people over for thanksgiving, start cooking in october.
(Announcer) you can quit.
For free help,
call 1-800-quit now. Good to see you, mrs. Corinthos. Or, shall I say, the future mrs. Morgan. I’m looking forward to your nuptials. We’re happy to have you. Until then, good health and long life to you. Same to you.
[ Exhales sharply ] What? Another deal done? Okay, you know what? Um…I don’t know how many times I have to keep telling you this. Jason and I really do love each other, and it’s sad that you can’t accept that. You know, every move you’ve made since sonny died ha– has been to shore up sonny’s illegal business. A-and this — this sprint to the altar is nothing more than theater, and josslyn’s an unwitting player. Don’t expect an invitation, and do not crash the wedding. Tell me something — are you really comfortable putting our daughter on display in front of those dangerous people? Your — your — your “business associates.” You need to go. You need to leave. And you need to care enough about your kids to not paint bull’s-eyes on their backs. But, hey, if joss gets killed, you’ll still have sonny’s blood money to keep you warm. Did you hear that? Yeah, I heard enough. Whatever. I gotta get back to work. Okay, hey, hey. Not — not like this.
[ Gasps ] Well, I need a drink, but i can’t because I’m on the job. But I’m the boss, so I can do whatever the hell I want, right? Ho– hold on. Jason… just come with me. Come on. Well, this correspondence is evidence that edward quartermaine intended to include your father an inheritor of elq voting shares. I thought so. Yep, it’s good. So, tomorrow, I’ll go to the courthouse and see if I can move the hearing up a little bit. Okay. How long before we hear back from them? A couple days? Couple of weeks? Well [Sighs] The wheels of justice, you know, they turn very, very, very slowly. So, don’t panic while I’m out of town. Out of town? Yep. Where are you going? Oh, I’m — I’m going to a tropical, romantic island where I’ll be doing all kinds of fun stuff that you do on an island. But when I get back, we will get your shares of elq. Believe me. Ah, well, could you get this drink? Uh, you’re gonna be rolling in dough very soon. Kevin gave me the broad strokes. Have you spoken to spencer? He refuses to have anything to do with me. My son is ignoring my calls, my texts, my emails. I even tried to message him on social media. Nothing. Can laura run interference? Yeah, my mother has made it clear that she is sick of my antics, too. I’m so sorry. You warned me. You told me not to accuse spencer unless I was absolutely sure. And I know that you even sent my mother and kevin to stop me. I didn’t know what else to do. You did everything you could. You always do. I just — I just wish I had listened. Honestly, I wish I’d been wrong. I mean, things would be so much better for everybody if spencer had been our stalker. Pretty sweet gig for a serial killer.
[ Clears throat ] Minimum security, full-time attendants. How is that legal? It’s absurd. And when I inquired about it, I was told to butt out. And if I didn’t like it, there was a nice cement wall and a shiv waiting for me at pentonville. You told me it was dr. Collins’ twin brother, but it didn’t quite prepare me. I’m glad he’s a vegetable now. Spencer! His condition is called locked-in syndrome. It means that he’s not able to — he can’t move or speak, but his brain, his mind, they’re as sharp as ever. You’ve heard of it? I saw a movie about it. It was a true story based on the locked-in guy’s memoir — which he wrote by blinking out every letter one by one. And that’s what ryan’s going through now? That sounds like hell. Good. Delightful. Come on, have a seat. I don’t want to spend the rest of my visit with you talking about ryan. I’m sorry, it’s just — how are you? Pretty much as you see me. This is as good as it gets.
[ Laughs ] What’s going on with your father? I figured if you could forgive him for faking his own death, you could forgive him anything. You’d be mistaken. Clearly, your father did not heed my advice. He accused you of stalking ava, didn’t he? Oh, my god, thank you so much! Oh! Oh. I got it. Oh, sorry. Oh, jax! Maxie. There you go. So, you’re back to planning weddings, huh? Yeah! Carly and jason’S. Isn’t it great they’re getting married? Mr. Sinclair, please… forgive my friend mike. He’s the most loyal, protective guy you’ll ever meet, which means, sometimes, courtesy takes a back seat.
[ Chuckles ] No apology necessary. I’m just glad to know nina has such good friends here in nixon falls. Knowing nina, I’m sure she would do anything in her power to make sure all of you are protected in return. Peter wants me to use my connection to valentin to help him find louise, and if I don’T… he’ll take james. Henrik is targeting my grandson?
Yes. His exact words were, if I don’t help him, james will be “more than an adequate replacement.” Nina, you know, there is only one way to deal with him. I know, aunt liesl. And if you can’t for any reason… I’ll do it myself. Oh, I will most definitely manage it. I must go, meine liebe nichte. Whatever happens, do not panic. Keep your head on straight. I’ll ring you soon. Okay. Nina? Who was that? What if I told you… the best place to begin is within. With collagen, that supports our body from the inside, out. Because when we feel supported from within… our confidence… comes from way deeper. It’s within us. Okay, we’re not gonna ask for discounts on floor models, demos or displays. Shopping malls can be a big trigger for young homeowners turning into their parents. You ever think about the storage operation a place like this must rely on? -No. They just sell candles, and they’re making overhead? You know what kind of fish those are? -No. -Eh, don’t be coy. [ Laughs ]
[ Sniffs, clears throat ] Koi fish. It can be overwhelming. Think a second. Have we seen this shirt before?
Progressive can’t save you
from becoming your parents.
But we can save you money
when you bundle
home and auto with us. But you know what? I’m still gonna get it.
Do I need to pretreat my
laundry? Nope! With tide pods, you don’t need to worry. The pre-treaters are built in. Tide pods dissolve even when the water is freezing. Nice!
If it’s got to be clean, it’s
got to be tide.
Tums vs. Mozzarella stick

Fast heartburn relief in every
bite. Crunchy outside, chewy inside.
Tums, tums, tums, tums
tums chewy bites ur clientswere never able to lie to you. Rarely. Stop deflecting. Your father and I know about the letter that ryan sent you. Which I returned. Unopened. Spence, uh, sorry to interrupt. I saw a vending machine in the lobby. Can I get either of you anything? No, thank you. Lovely girl. Mm-hmm. Intuitive. Yeah. Lovely and intuitive. Just like you. Clearly, you’ve picked up your father’s tactic for evading uncomfortable conversations. I am nothing like my father. You’re right — if spencer had been our stalker, he would be getting help right now. And you and avery, you’d be coming home. And instead, my son and I…
[Sighs] We’re more alienated than ever. And here we are. Together. Which is an open provocation of our stalker. The irony isn’t lost on me that finding you here is going against your expressed wishes. But I’m sorry, ava. I’ve lost my son and my mother. I can’t lose you, too. Would you like to continue with “moby dick,” or would you like to read “frankenstein” again? Okay. You know, I find it interesting that you’re so fascinated with a book about a monster written by a woman. Excuse me? Hi. Um, I’m hoping you could help me. I’m here visiting my boyfriend’s aunt, and she was telling me about mr. Chamberlain’s locked-in syndrome. I’ve never heard of that before. Um, put simply, my patient has lost voluntary control of all his muscles except for his eyes, but his cognitive function remains unaffected. So, mr. Chamberlain knows that I’m here asking about him? Yeah, people with locked-in syndrome like mr. Chamberlain are fully alert and aware of their environments. May I speak to him? Uh — ryan, is it okay if this young woman speaks with you? He said, “go right ahead.” Hello. What did he say? He said, “hi, there.” Good evening, my waffelstrudel. So, I’m very excited to go to st. Lucia and soak up the sun with you. Perhaps this is not the right time to venture to an island. Why not? I mean, that’s all you’ve been talking about — going to the conference for britt. So, what’s going on? What changed your mind? I wondered why you were trying to hustle me out of here. It’s a good thing I had to go back for my glasses. Phyllis, the guy’s creepy. He doesn’t deserve courtesy. As long as he’s in my bar, he does. Well, that’s why at’s with you? You always take an immediate dislike to anyone who gets close to nina. Not — not anyone. It’s been two people! Peter and elijah well, maybe it’s time you questioned why your first reaction is to be suspicious of anyone from nina’s former life. Was that valentin? No, it was just “crimson” business. If you will just leave, peter, I will calm down, and I will call valentin and get what you need. Fine. But if you double-cross me before little james and I leave town to start our new life, I will not only wreck this fantasy you’ve got going here in little nowheresville, but I will make sure you can never show your face in port charles ever again. When I get a migraine, I shut out the world. But with nurtec odt that’s all behind me now.

And more sheets. Wait, what the hell’s going on? Where — where are my servers? Well, I had the place closed for a private party. When?! When I saw jax unloading on you. It was this, or I was gonna punch him right in the face. Uh — you were not gonna punch him in the face. Oh, I would have, but I stopped myself because of josslyn. She doesn’t deserve to be in the middle of this. She doesn’T.
[ Both sigh ] I mean, jax, he just doesn’t get it — doesn’t get why we’re getting married. And the way he’s acting, I’M… I’m starting to think he doesn’t know anything about you. Maybe not. But you do. So, are you feeling weird about carly getting married again, especially now that you’re single? You know, carly is important to me. We share a child together. I don’t want to see anything bad happen to her, so… that’s not what you asked me. You asked me if I felt weird about carly getting married, and the answer is no, I don’T. Okay, forgive the observation, but you seem less than thrilled. U-um, how is nina doing, by the way? She seems happy. Yeah, um — um, you know, she’s — she seems happy that she has a relationship with wiley again. I just hope that we can be friends when she, uh — when she comes back. Oh, well, I didn’t get the impression that nixon falls was a detour for nina. I got the feeling she was putting down roots. How’s it gonna feel, nina? Not to be able to hold that precious grandson of yours ever again. Hmm? When michael and carly find out what you’ve been keeping from them — when mike discovers that this grandson you’re so afraid of losing is also his — you’ve made your point. Oh, I haven’t even gotten started with jax yet. Your knight in shining armor. How’s he gonna feel when he finds out you’ve been playing footsie with carly’s husband? A man he loathes. Of course I must attend the conference. It’s imperative I hear the latest research findings on huntington’S. But there’s no need for you to sit through those boring presentations. Well, first of all, I-I’ve been to my fair share of legal conferences. And there’s one thing I have learned, and that is that once you sign in, your colleagues, they don’t know whether you’re sipping martinis, laying on the beach… or elsewhere. You, mein liebling, are a genius. I’ve heard rumors of that. We shall discuss how much — or how little — I should pack just after I make a quick phone call. You haven’t lost me, nikolas. You still have my heart. I mean, if anything, our stalker’s attempt to come between us has backfired magnificently, hasn’t it? Just made us love each other more. So there is a silver lining. Who knew? But we are under siege. And until we find out who is doing this — and we will find out who it is. I hope, so… because the threats… they’re escalating. N-nobody has been hurt yet, but how long before somebody is? I can’t live like that. Can you? No. But I can’t live without you, either. Than we are at an impasse. Our stalker doesn’t want us together, and we can’t seem to stay apart from one another. So, then, it’ll be my job to keep us part. How far apart? Oceans apart. Nicholas was trying to teach you a lesson. By pretending to stab me? Okay, that was a bad idea. I told him it was a bad idea, but he did it anyway, and I’m sorry that that hurt you. But I’m also sorry for your father. How can you possibly feel sorry for my father? Because he was raised in the middle of a tug of war for power between helena and stefan. Can you imagine how hard it is to grow up in that environment and be able to have a moral compass? To know right from wrong? I mean, honestly, spencer, do you have any idea how lucky you are? It is so nice to speak with you. That’s incredible. Does, uh, mr. Chamberlain do all of his communication through you? Why do you ask? Oh, I’m starting classes at pcu soon and plan on going to medical school. Is that right? So, I imagine working with patients with rare diagnoses, there’s never a dull moment, right? True enough. Fascinating. I have an idea. Uh, maybe I could volunteer here. What’s he saying? He’s saying, “go, go, go.” Over and over again. You’d never want leftover food residue on your surfaces. But that’s what you could be doing with a used dishcloth. So, switch to bounty for a more hygienic clean. Unlike used dishcloths that can redistribute residue, bounty keeps your surfaces cleaner.

Kellogg’s special K. Nina neededwas a reason to come home. Well, now she has a reason to stay. Phyllis? I should really get back to wedding planning. Oh, no, no, no. Come on, maxie. W-w-what’s the real reason nina is staying in nixon falls? Okay. It’s not a “what.” It’s a “who.” Nina has found someone special, and I’m under the very strong impression that it’s getting serious. You’ve been keeping sonny’s identity from him just to get back at carly. You know, you don’t think that I know what I have done and what I have to lose? It’s just so much fun to remind you, nina. Okay, why don’t you just get out, you psycho? So I can get you a lead on louise.
[ Door opens ] You okay? Yeah, I’m fine. I’m fine. I’m just g– I’m gonna walk peter out, okay? It was nice meeting you, mr. Sinclair. I hope you’ll drop by again. You can count on it. All right, let’s go. See what I mean? There was definitely some tension. “Some tension”? Nina will either explain the situation to us, or she won’T. Until she does, we have to respect her privacy. Mike, if nina doesn’t like mr. Sinclair hanging around, she’ll tell him where to go. You have 24 hours before the people you love suffer the consequences of your stalling. Are we clear? Yes. Good.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
[ Gasps ]
[ Exhales sharply ] Aunt liesl… I can tell by your voice, things have gotten worse. You can say that. I know that under normal circumstances, you would rely on lawful means to end peter’s reign of terror. But since peter has threatened james, that is not an option. Am I right? You’ve read my mind. Mr. Chamberlain can’t want me gone already. Are you sure that’s what he’s saying? Um, sometimes, when they’re tired, people with locked-in syndrome can suffer from eyelid spasms. Well, that must be it. He’s just tired, then. You get some rest now. Thank you so much for your time. I’m sorry, I didn’t catch your name. Harmony. Harmony. I’m esme. You know, I was gonna guess that. You look like an “esme.” I know, right? I hope to come back soon to visit the both of you. I need to get far away from port charles. No, we can — we can still figure out an alternative. There is no alternative that includes the two of us together. My only hope is that I can go far enough off the grid so that the stalker loses interest. You know what I want to do? We grab avery, and we go. You know that defeats the purpose. Yeah. There is something you can do for me, though. Anything. Make peace with spencer.
[ Breathes deeply ] I-I want to. I’m trying. But spencer and his girlfriend, they’ve moved into my mother’s place. Wait, spencer has a girlfriend? Yeah. Apparently, he did have a secret. It just wasn’t one that I suspected. Oh, no. Poor trina. How on earth am I lucky? Look at everything he’s done to me. I have every right to be angry. Furious, livid. Yes, you do. But isn’t the real reason that you’re angry is because he didn’t trust you and that he accused you of stalking ava?
[ Sighs ] I know things are gonna be difficult to fix between you and your father, but it’s worth it. Do not be so focused on punishing him that you end up punishing yourself. Look at this place. It’s beautiful! And you did a — you did a great job. Yeah. Long way from jake’S. Eh, jake’s was okay, too. Jake’s was paradise. I wouldn’t go that far. That’s because, to you, jake’s was a place to shoot pool and drink beer. To me…
[ Sighs ] I’d spend all day, every day, running and lying and manipulating. Chasing… I don’t know what. Some idea of what I thought would make me happy.

Have your blessingto wipe peter august off the map? What do I need to do? Tell peter that anna and valentin have a lead in st. Lucia. W-what’s in st. Lucia? A medical conference and my alibi. Well, peter’s as good as there.
Good girl. Now, take a breath. Have some champagne. Give yourself a hug. Soon, peter august will never bother anyone ever again. So, who is, uh, nina’s mystery man? Okay, I don’t have a lot of details… but I will say this — lately, port charles has given nina nothing but pain. Right. Myself included. I’m sorry, but…yes. I think nina wants to keep her life in nixon falls separate from her life here, and that includes the people in it. And I only told you as much as I did because I thought you should know that nina has moved on, and, you know… maybe you should, too. Sorry to interrupt, but that guard is sending dirty looks this way. I think our time is up. Ah, okay. Well, it was nice meeting you, and I’m sorry we didn’t get more of a chance to chat. Same. Well, come back and visit me in prison any time. Esme: [ Laughs ] Plan on it. You, too. And remember what I said. I will.
[ Clears throat ]
Je t’aime. Back at you. Okay, bye. Bye. Um… your nephew’s girlfriend, esme? She’s trouble. You think so? Yeah. As you know, I have a lot of experience with wayward girls. Some are victims. Some are not. If your nephew knows what’s good for him, he’ll steer clear of that one. You know where you’re going? There are some artists that I’ve been trying to woo in europe. That should take a few weeks. After that, who knows? Maybe by then, you can come back. Only if our stalker is caught. And at this rate… I’ll miss you. All want to do right now is try to talk you into staying. All I want to do is let you. Unfortunately… I’ve learned my lesson, and I’m done trying to control people that I love. What a lousy time for you to start to build some character. Promise you’ll come back. I promise that I will love you wherever I am. Back then, when I would walk into jake’s and you were there… …I knew it was gonna be a good night. Yeah. For me, too. I always thought I annoyed you. Eh, you did.
[ Laughs ] Sometimes. Most of the time. I always, uh… I always liked seeing you. You know what I liked? Oh, no, carly. No. Ugh. Dancing. Oh, come on! You said you brought me here to make me feel better, and dancing would make me feel better.
[ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ] Will you dance with me? Yes.
There’s a great big world out there
[ Inhales sharply ] I, um — I really need to get back to work. Um… thanks for the beer. S– yeah, any time. Whatever’s going on between nina and peter sinclair, it’s definitely not romantic. That’s not what bothers me about the guy. Well, what is it? When I first met peter yesterday… …I got the feeling he knows who I am.
