THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
[ Bomb beeping ] Okay, driver, step on it. We can’t wait to go celebrate with our family and friends.
[ Engine starts ]
[ Explosion ] Brook lynn. What are you doing here? Hey, chase. Nice to see you, too. Come on in.
[ Baby whimpers ] Shh. Figured you would have been at jason and carly’s wedding. Yeah, it’s not like I wasn’t invited, but I was closer with sonny, so, I, uh — I decided to change my mind at the last minute. Quiet night at home with your daughter doesn’t sound so bad. Yeah, you must be a detective. Bailey and I barely get any time together with all the craziness that goes on in this house, right? I get what you mean. I’ve missed bailey since I’ve moved out. I’ve missed…a lot. Maxie! This is magical! This is gorgeous. You have done an amazing job. Thank you. I have never seen the garden look more beautiful. Carly is gonna love this. Well, even jason might notice.
[ Laughter ] You might be joking, but jason was practically gregarious today. Well, gregarious for jason. Ah, I think he is genuinely happy with carly, and that is all I want for him.
[ Glass breaking ] Buscema and novak? Bomb was intended for us. Spinelli and brick had it redirected. You knew about this? I got a heads-up… from a friend. Oh, my god. Was that carly and jason? What is keeping them? Are they already in jail? What? For what? No. Mm. Although, uh, recent events may cause the groom to avail himself of your services sooner rather than later. And will this said consultation take place at the pcpd? Quite possibly. Ugh. Hi. Is everything okay? Um… um, uh… uh, there was just an ex– explosion outside of all saints. A car bomb. Was it — was it carly and jason’s car? I’m not gonna do this right now. I gotta go to my wife and kids. No, I know I-I can’t stop you, but if you leave here knowing nothing else, know that I honestly love you. Don’t — don’t say that. No, it’s true. I love you. Don’t say it! Don’T… you don’t love me. You love mike. No. Mike is gone! But you were happy in nixon falls. I’m going to my wife! Do you understand me? I’m not gonna do this right now! No, listen, the doctor said you can’t leave here. Try and stop me!
[ Whimpers ]
[ Door slams ]
Sonny? Yeah. Welcome back. Well, don’t act so happy to see me. Believe it or not, I actually am happy to see you. Yeah? Can I give you a ride home? Yeah, I’ll even take one from you. Okay, well, there’s a car waiting right outside. It can take you to the tarmac, and I’ll call my pilot and let him know you’re coming. Thanks. Okay. And, uh, for what it’s worth, um, I’m sorry for what happened to you. Well, you’re not the only one. Hey. Sonny’s on his way home. What have I done? We have to make this quick. The fire department’s on the way. And the cops, too, I’m sure. Thank you for letting us know what novak and buscema were planning. Cyrus renault was pulling the strings. They tried to rope me in, and I pretended to go along. But I want no part of renault’s machinations. Yeah, well, you supported the corinthos organization after my husband died. We appreciate your loyalty. It won’t go unrewarded. I prefer working with people who aren’t sloppy, reckless, or in prison. Congratulations on your marriage. Now go dance at your reception, celebrate the love you have for one another. Thank you. You could have told me. Yeah, well, I wanted you to enjoy the wedding. Besides, I knew brick and spinelli were handling it. What do we do now? We just go to the reception. Did I hear that right? You’re actually going to go to our wedding reception? What if the cops show up and they pull you in for questioning? Then I should be where I’m supposed to be. So it’s an alibi. No, it’s a party for friends and family to celebrate our wedding. Besides, maxie said there’d be music, and I know at least one of us like to dance. Jason and carly are fine. Okay, so whose car did blow up? Uh, possibly the limo with, uh, mr. Buscema and mr. Novak? Well, what a coincidence that they should meet their demise right after the wedding of their chief rival. How did that happen? Uh, I-it might have something to do with cyrus renault. Thank goodness your mother wasn’t in the same car as her date. Well, now that we’re safely outside the house of the lord, I can tell you what I honestly think about your nasty little insinuation about my son leo. There’s no need. You’ve already communicated your opinions perfectly. Oh, communicated. See, that’s that word that you like so much. Ned tells me that you think there’s something wrong with the way my kid communicates. There’s nothing wrong with leo. I just picked up on something when leo sought me out at the hospital. Yeah, which should never have happened in the first place. Ned, olivia, I-I feel like this is something best worked out between the two of you, so if you’ll excuse me.
[ Laughs ] Okay, enough. What’s so funny over here? Olivia hired a stripper for carly’s bachelorette party. Yeah, and it ended up being brando corbin. My mom was covering my eyes as if I’d never seen anything like that before. And where have you seen something like that before? Okay, spinelli, are you ready for your emcee role? That is, unless you want to do it.
[ Laughs ] No. Oh, you’re cute. No, I confine my public speaking these days to the courtroom. Besides, I-I know spinelli will find the right words. Just not too many words, right, spinelli? I shall endeavor for brevity worthy of the groom himself. Speaking of the groom, if he talked carly into ditching this, I will not forgive him.
[ Chuckles ] What’s so funny? Oh, I just, um… you just seem so much like your — your old self, before — before peter’s betrayal? I-I just meant, I-I — planning jason and carly’s wedding was probably a welcome distraction. Well, I enjoyed it, and I’ll enjoy it even more if they actually show up.
[ All chuckle ] Did you come by for your bailey fix? Yes, and to give monica this to, uh, thank her for her hospitality. Well, you weren’t exactly a difficult houseguest. Are you feeling any better? I’m almost 100%. But I think holding bailey would help. Here you go, cookie. Oh, there you go, sweetheart. Come here, you. Yeah.
[ Mumbles baby talk ] Hey. Hey, do you remember me, sweet girl?
[ Whimpers and cries ] Oh, you don’t? I remember you. You’re just getting so big. You know, you used to look like your mama, but you don’t really look like her anymore. Matter of fact, you don’t really look like your dad, either. Yes. How are you doing? I’m fine. How’s phyllis? She’s with the doctor, but she’ll be okay. Thank god. Anna. Valentin. We went to the tan-o to find you, but it was destroyed. One of the firefighters told me I could find you here. Are you all right? Are you hurt? I’m fine. What are you doing here? You called me. And you said I lived at the metro court when you know full well that I live at the quartermaines’. So I took it as a sign that you were trying to give me a signal. Was I right? Was the fire at the tan-o anything to do with your call? You’ve always been so smart. Peter was with me. He forced me to call you.
Peter set fire to the tan-o when I wouldn’t help him find louise. He tried to kill me and my friend phyllis. I was just telling nina that phyllis is gonna be okay. Oh, good. Good. How did he find you? Unbeknownst to us, he was keeping tabs on maxie, and she came to visit me in nixon falls on her way back from texas. Did you not try to contact the police? You knew they were looking for him, right? He had a gun. He threatened me. He was with you the entire time? No. But he warned me if I tried anything, he would kidnap james. And we both know peter. We both know he’s hateful enough to do that, so… I called my aunt liesl. And she said that she was gonna deal with peter, but then… something happened, something went wrong. Have you heard from aunt liesl? We’re not sure what’s happened, um, either. Can I ask you — d-did you have another opportunity in which you could have alerted us or the police? I was in a tight spot. He was blackmailing me. Blackmailing you with what? You know, sometimes when she smiles, I can see you. Or is it valentin? I don’t know. What do you think? I just think bailey’s her own little person. Right, cookie? She’s a one-of-a-kind, just like her mama. Yeah. So I heard you went camping. Yeah. You know, I have to say I was a little nervous to take on the big outdoors, but, uh, it was actually a lot of fun. Oh. [ Chuckles ] I’ll take your word on that, if you’re into the whole nature thing. You’re not?! I, uh, am a fan of central park, my great-grandmother’s rose garden, and anywhere with chaises, cabanas, and cocktail service. Oh, you don’t know what you’re missing. Roughing it is one of life’s great joys. I’ll take your word on that. So are you back at the pcpd yet? Soon. Once I get a few personal things in order. You’re moving forward with the divorce from willow? Actually, I’m seeking an annulment because willow and i never really had a marriage in the first place. I’m sorry, chase. Don’t be. I wouldn’t trade that time for anything. You don’t have your speech memorized yet. You have been working on it for days. I know, I know. I just — I-I’m nervous. I want to make sure it’s right. Michael, you will be great. You truly are the best best man. Ma, I think vincent novak stood you up. Why? Could his business really be taking him that long? Is it me? No. Because I’m sure I wasn’t misreading the signals vincent was sending. Maybe you should just, um… …you know, uh, make up your mind that mr. Novak isn’t coming, that his business was all-consuming. Thought you could use a drink. What I could use is a bride and groom. Well, don’t look at me. I didn’t kidnap them. Do you think this is funny? Not anymore. ‘Cause it’s definitely not funny. Right. Jason is not known for his social flair. I wouldn’t put it past him to convince carly that they don’t need a wedding reception, a reception that I planned to the very last meticulous detail. Ladies and gentlemen, may I please have your attention? Please raise your glasses as I happily present carly and jason morgan!
[ Cheers and applause ]
And it’s yo-o-ou
hiding in plain sight
yes, it’s yo-o-ou
that sets my world right
and it’s you-o-ou it’s no jake’S. But it’ll do.
It’s always been you
blackmailing you with what? What has peter got on you? You know, it’s not important right now. All that matters is that peter is on the loose somewhere. Can you tell me everything you remember about the last time you were with him? He… he tied me and my friend phyllis up, and then he — he poured kerosene around the tan-O. He dropped a lit match, and then he left. Did he tell you where he was going? No, he didn’t, but I told him that you’re probably on your way. You think he’s headed out of nixon falls? I think he’s probably headed back to… …to port charles and back to maxie.
[ Gasps ] Valentin, you’ve got to stop peter. Stop him before he gets to maxie. Brook lynn: Excuse me. Did you just say that you were
glad you married willow? I was dying, brook lynn, fading fast, letting go, and then I heard her voice telling me to hang on. I heard the love in her voice. And it gave me the strength to survive. Wow. Yeah, wow. And willow loves me. Maybe not in the way that I want to be loved by her, but that commitment I heard in her voice — it was real. And that’s what brought me back, and I could never regret being with someone who brought me so much joy. You’re amazing. You are a much better person than I could ever hope to be. I don’t know about that. You remember how I was when I found out that michael and willow were sleeping together. You mean bitter and angry, almost gave austin the keys to the quartermaine kingdom? Yeah, I’m over it. Well, I’m not. Giving monica that gift — that was just an excuse to come by. The real reason I’m here is to say I’m sorry to you and — and your family.
[ Glass clinking ] Hey, uh, excuse me, everybody. If I can get your attention, I’d, uh, like to say a few words about the bride and groom. And I want to thank you all for coming and helping my mom and jason celebrate this amazing day. Well, today has been a day of firsts — the first time I’ve seen my mom this happy in a long time and the first I’ve, uh, realized that two people I’ve known and loved my entire life have fallen in love with each other. Now, jason, thank you for being my mom’s best friend and loving her the way that she deserves to be loved. And, mom, you are the most amazing mother in the entire world, and I am thankful every day that you found happiness, that after everything you’ve been through in your life, which is too numerous to list in one day, that they’ve, uh, finally been rewarded. And I’ve — I’ve never met anybody as strong as you are, as determined, or…
[Sighs] Has as much as love in their heart. Look, I’m — I’m the luckiest guy in the world to have you for a mother, and now jason is the luckiest guy in the world to have you as his wife. And we wouldn’t be here without you. We wouldn’t be here without each other, so… to family. All: To family.
Thank you. All right, so 911 got an anonymous tip about a fire across town from the tan-O. Sending firefighters on a wild goose chase, delaying their response. Exactly. So now the police are looking for peter based on nina’s accusations. Let me guess. They’re not having any luck. Well, no, but one of my wsb contacts managed to do a fast trace on peter’s 911 call and it got pinged off a tower at the intersection of highway 21 and route 7. Okay, I’ll drive. I would have gladly thrown this at your head when you found that document with those changes to my great-grandfather’s will. Why didn’t you? Well, as mad as I was for you betraying my family, there was a part of me that understood how angry and betrayed you were by michael and willow. Yeah, but the first thing you learn in school is two wrongs don’t make a right. The second that austin asked me to look for your great-grandfather’s papers, I should have shut him down. Well, I sure wish you had, because, uh, michael ended up giving the document to austin. You don’t agree with michael’s decision. Michael insists that transparency will be our friend, that the document is non-binding, that it is just a list of things that my great-grandfather was thinking about doing, and that the judge will rule in our favor, so… but you don’t buy that. And you’re not the type of person to sit back and hope for the best. I have a couple tricks up my sleeve. Meaning? Oh, don’t get your knickers in a twist, detective. Nothing you can arrest me for. Oh, maxie, thank you so much. This place is beautiful. I couldn’t ask for a better wedding reception. Oh, good. You — you like it? I mean, the flowers are okay? Jen elliott really hooked us up. And you like the cake and you love the music? It’s all perfect. It’s perfect. Thank you so much. But now I want you to go have fun. I mean, you are our guest, so go relax and enjoy yourself. Ah, looks like all of your worry, let’s just call it, was completely unfounded, ’cause everything turned out great. Cheers. Now you can rest on your laurels. Well, I’m not sure I know how to do that. Well, you did good. Yeah? I wasn’t — I wasn’t sure. Yeah, michael was incredibly nervous, but I told him he would be wonderful. Listen to willow. She knows what she’s talking about. And don’t let her go.
The love, love, love oh. Congratulations, my friend. You know, when carly first told me that the two of you were thinking about getting married, I knew right away it was going to work. You two are life partners in the very best sense of the word. And I wish you every happiness. Thank you, diane. And now I sense that you and mr. Spinelli have matters to discuss that I would much rather not hear. So I’m gonna see if cousin brando wants to dance. Uh, so no further news about the untimely demise of mr. Buscema and mr. Novak? Brick called on the way over here, and, uh, the police are on the scene. Well, I have full confidence that they will not find evidence of how the bomb was planted or who was responsible. I fear the authorities will want to question you anyway. Yeah, probably. I just hope they don’t crash the reception, as it were. I mean, frankly, it would break maxie’s heart. Oh! Oh. Oh. I have never seen a more beautiful bride. Aw. Or maid of honor. It’s great to see you so happy, mom. Oh, it’s great to be this happy. Gosh, after all these years that you and jason have known one another, and now you’re finally together. It’s ironic, isn’t it? I think it makes perfect sense. I mean, you guys have always been so close. It’s like you can read each other’s minds. You know what jason’s thinking right now? Hmm. That he’ll be glad when this is over? Yeah, you need to go rescue him, mom.
[ Laughing ] I think so. Yeah. Ah. Michael gave a nice speech. Don’t try to change the subject. You should not have been talking about my son with that quartermaine wannabe. Liv, all austin said was that he thought we should follow up with him about leo. And talk to him about a specialist. Obviously, the good doctor thinks there’s something very wrong with my son. It wouldn’t hurt to have leo checked out. Spinelli: Ladies and gentlemen, could I once again have your attention, please? Mrs. Morgan would like all the ladies to gather for the traditional throwing of the bouquet.
[ Indistinct talking and laughter ] Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re not gonna go try and catch the bouquet, are you? Uh, last time I checked, you and I were still married. Sometimes I wonder why. You want in on this bouquet thing? No way. I’m lucky I didn’t end up married to louise’s father. Peter. Yeah. Getting married is not on my agenda. Finding my daughter and seeing peter brought to justice — those are my top priorities. Okay. Well, I support you in that. Thank you. You’re welcome. Ma, go on, try your luck at catching the bouquet. Hey, maybe the next guy you meet will be mr. Right. Wrong. I am done with men. If they’re not standing me up, they’re trying to kill me. Too bad sasha’s on bed rest. We could put her to the test and see just how serious she is about you. Think she’d try for the bouquet? Spinelli: Everyone ready? Women: Yeah! All right. One, two, three! -Oh! -Oh! Hey, hey! -Wow! -Nicely done. Perfect. Nice catch. It practically landed in my hands.
[ Chuckles ] Well, I think that means that, uh, we have my mom’s approval if we ever decide to make it official again. Hey. Nobody is looking. Now’s your chance to make your escape. Are you — are you sure? Do you love carly? Are you happy with her? Very. Okay, then that’s all that matters, ’cause that’s all I want for you is to be happy. So go. Go now and start your life. Ah! [ Chuckles ] Thank you, monica. I love you. Aw.
Just take me home go on. Get out of here.
[ Coughing ] The doctor just told me you can’t leave. They want to keep you for observation. No, I have to warn maxie about peter. Well, I already tried calling her, and she didn’t pick up. What if peter has already gotten to her? We have to warn her. May I have this dance, my beautiful and brilliant maximista? You remembered. As if I could forget you promised me a dance.
From dirt and clay
roam the dark… hey, monica, uh… ah. …Can I catch a ride home with you? You’re not going with ned? Nah. Oh, I mean, I thought you two were kinda getting along pretty well. I thought… we’d get back together? Mm, yeah. Not anymore.
Like you josslyn, may I have this dance? I thought you’d never ask.
Best of the two
so I’m gonna hold on michael.
Gonna hold on yeah? I don’t believe that catching the bouquet is symbolic of anything. Well, maybe not, but it proves my mom has really good aim.
[ Laughs ] I just want to make clear that I’m not saying this because of any silly superstition. Okay, got it. No silly superstitions. So what are you saying? First time I married you was to keep wiley away from nelle. Mm-hmm. But the next time I marry you, if we decide to get married again, it will be real, like this wedding. Okay, confession time. Do I even want to know? Oh, you do. I was actually glad when you went all in on austin when you were mad at michael and willow. Who are you and what have you done with blq? No, really. Looking to get revenge on michael and willow for sleeping together — it showed me you’re human. So you used to think of me as a zen god of tolerance and compassion?
[ Laughing ] You wish. But, um, just that you could get down in the mud as easily as the rest of us. Thanks…I think. Not that you’re any good at being a bad guy. I mean, look how quickly I caught you with that document. Whole sneaking-around business — it’s not in your dna. Well, maybe you can give me some lessons. No way. I want you to stay exactly the way you are. Hey. What did the car rental company say? Car we saw on the side of the road was hired by a peter sinclair. Sinclair. That’s interesting. He’s using his father’s pen name. Yeah, that’s kind of sloppy, though — leaving your car behind. Why is that sloppy? He knew we were trailing him. He switched to a second vehicle. Or he’s being picked up. Maybe this is a rendezvous. So he’s nearby. I’ll go that way. I’ll go that way. Listen, I know you’re armed. I know you are. Keep your phone on. Anna. I’ll be careful. You be careful, too. Don’t worry about me. But if I see him, I’m gonna shoot him on sight. Um… so, uh, what’d you think of the reception? I, uh, had fun. I could tell. Yeah. Yeah, I, uh — I really liked michael’s speech. It was nice. He went a little overboard on how amazing I am. That’s why I liked it. We did it. We’re married. How do you feel? Like this is right. Me, too.
I have only loved… hi. May I? It’s okay, spinelli. I invited austin. I should dance with him.
[ Chuckles ] Ma? Here. Have a drink. To celebrate the new you. The one who doesn’t need a man in her life to prove that she is worthy.
[ Chuckles ] You’re right. I’m better than vincent novak and all those losers out there who think they can toy with my emotions.
[ Sighs ] Well… you’ve been boring holes in my back all night. Go ahead. Keep apologizing. I know it’s not my place to tell you how to raise your son. Did you ever let that stop you? Liv, I love leo as if he were my own son. So at the risk of driving us even further apart, won’t you at least consider taking austin’s advice and having that beautiful boy that we both love checked out?
Far too many times thank you. Thank you for my dance. Thank you for inviting me. I really appreciate it. This was fun.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Yeah. Oh. Oh, you know what? Um, you should grab us some cake. It’s from eckert’S. Best bakery in port charles. Hey, you got it.
[ Ringing continues ] Hello? Nina? Oh, thank god, maxie, you picked up. What’s wrong? It’s peter. He was here in nixon falls, and I think he’s headed back to port charles.
He’s headed back to you. I’m at the rendezvous. Where’s your op? No, I don’t have 10 minutes to wait! You said you’d get me out of here. Now, make it happen. Anna: Scheduling problems?
[ Gun cocks ] I wouldn’t worry. You’re not going anywhere. I’ll make sure monica gets her gift. Thank you. And thanks for listening to me. Yeah, of course. Besides, any conversation you and I have where you don’t arrest me, I consider it a win.
[ Chuckles ] All right. Hey, I will see you around, cutie pie. You’re gonna be quite the heartbreaker someday. See you later. Chase, wait. You don’t have to go. Why don’t you stay?
[ Exhales sharply ] I know you and trust you more than anyone, and I can’t believe how nervous I am. Hey. There’s no rush. We have the rest of our lives. This morning I told you if we got married, I was afraid that I’d fall in love with you. I was wrong. I was in love with you then, and I’m in love with you now. I love you, too.
On the next “General Hospital” —
