THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
[ Knock on door ] Working late? Hey. You didn’t have to come yourself. I could’ve called the baby nurse to pick up bailey. Well, now that peter’s awake, I don’t want to take any chances. If it were up to me, I wouldn’t take my eyes off this little angel. I appreciate that. Unfortunately, peter is not our only problem now that my grandmother’s back in town. Your grandmother tracy? Yes. So, if you see her in the house or anywhere, really, steer clear. You don’t want to have anything to do with her. So you don’t want me to take bailey back to the house? Not till like the last possible moment? Well, then… looks like it’s just you and me, kid. Ava: Thank you so much. And can we have another setting, please? Are we expecting someone else? Yes, trina. This is a — thank you. It’s a working dinner with our new employee. And he’s right on time. There is a lull right now, so if you want to vent about the situation with your mom and sonny, now would be the time. I’m so pissed at sonny. Keep going. He totally protected nina in court. She’ll never have to pay for what she did. He doesn’t even view it as a crime. He’s completely betrayed his family, especially my mom. Well, has your mom said anything? Not directly. You should’ve seen her on new year’S. I mean, she’s hurting so bad. I’m sorry that your family has to go through this, but I think that everything will be okay. I mean, how many times have your mom and sonny been married? One more time than they’ve been divorced? Exactly. I think they’ll get through this.
[ Sighs ] This time I’m not so sure. I really think that my mom and sonny may have broken up for real. Oh, my god. That’s terrible. Yeah, it is. Thank you. So, does that mean we can’t use the cabin?
[ Knock on door ] Am I interrupting? Are you kidding? Of course not. You are exactly the person that I needed to see. Hello! In fact, I was gonna drop by charlie’s when I got done with work. Well, I’m glad I saved you a trip. I bet you can guess what I needed to talk to you about. The hearing? Oh, my god, phyllis. It was crazy. You — you won’t believe what happened. I know exactly what happened. It finally came out that you and sonny fell in love. Yeah. It was a disaster. You’re right. It is. So what are you gonna do about it? Everything we talked about — sonny told you how he felt about nina and you were honest with him about how you felt about jason on your wedding day. But have you been honest with him about how you feel about him still?
[ Footsteps approach ] Hey. What are you doing here? I live here. I… I don’t want to leave until we settle things.
Olivia, can I have some time with my wife? Of course. I was just on my way out. I’m rooting for you. Don’t let me down.
[ Door opens, closes ] How’s donna and avery? They miss you. I told them you were away on business. I don’t want them to think that I’m gone. Unlike nina, I have no desire to keep you away from your family. Good, ’cause I want to come home. I — we’ve been apart too long. Sonny, look — no. I know I made a mistake, and I should’ve told you from the beginning, despite my reasons. What reasons, sonny? I told you — jason died. Right, and sasha and brando lost their baby and you didn’t want to cause any more pain. Is that right? Sasha and — and… brando went through a — a terrible tragedy and it broke my heart. And then we lost jason, and you were able to express your hurt, your grief. I lost my best friend, my brother, and I had to stuff all that inside. I thought that I had to be tough for — for you. And I was afraid of losing you and I didn’t want this thing between nina to come between us, so I didn’T… I didn’t say anything, and I should have, and it made it worse. But now I’ve been apart from you for nine months and one night. One more minute without you. Hi. Hi!
[ Chuckles ] Hi. Hi. Are we — are we… are we still on for tonight? Why wouldn’t we be? I don’t know. Maybe an emergency — family, friends, the — the weather?
[ Laughs ] Maybe you’re having second thoughts? No, never. There’s no way I’m missing our first official date. I even brought a dress for the occasion.
[ Both laugh ]
[ Water running in distance ] Hold on. Don’t tell me you’ve changed your mind. Me? Yeah. No. No. Never. I’m just, uh… I’m just really happy you’ve, um… …you feel like you can move on with me. I think… franco would want me to be happy. And i am happy. With you.
[ Both chuckle ] Josslyn: That’s nice. My mother’s marriage is falling apart and you’re worried about a weekend getaway. You’re right, josslyn. It was insensitive of me, and I am truly, truly sorry. Apology accepted. It’s just — we don’t have to keep talking about this. All I can think about is spence. You know, he’s with ava right now to discuss restitution. He must be hating life right now. I mean, it’s torture. Not only this business with ava, but the whole going-to-prison thing. I mean… literally, the only thing he was looking forward to was our trip to the cabin. Look, I’m really sorry, but the last thing I want is to ask sonny for anything. I understand. I just don’t know how I’ll tell spence this, that the weekend is off. I mean, on top of everything else, how can I take this from him, too? Trina. I didn’t know you were gonna be here. Same here. You know what? I’ll leave you two to discuss one-on-one. No, please don’t leave on my account. I never mind seeing you. You, on the other hand… there’s no need to flatter trina. You already have the job. My job is usually paid. This feels more like indentured servitude. Court-mandated indentured servitude. You owe me, spencer, for the damage your little fake-blood stunt did to my gallery, not to mention the art itself. Now, before we talk business, why don’t we have a little something to eat, huh? What should we have — surf, turf, both? I can’t afford to eat anything here. You have a stranglehold on my trust fund. Well, who do you think is paying for this meal? Order whatever you like, trina. It’s on spencer. So, have you heard anything about your suspension? Not a peep, which is fine. Really? Yeah. Not having to work means I have more time to look after this little troublemaker. And when I’m not watching her, I fill my time with working out and looking up random facts. Did you know the severed head of a sea slug can grow its whole body back? Leo would find that fascinating. I just — I find that repulsive.
[ Clears throat ] Why can’t it be both? Why not? Chase, are you okay, really? I was just so eager to get out of the wheelchair and — and now that I’m — I’m able-bodied, I-I’m still kept from doing what I love. I mean, brook lynn, it is beyond frustrating. I’m so sorry. I told you, it’s — it’s not your fault. Yeah, but I can’t help but feel responsible. You were suspended for punching valentin, defending my honor. And I would do it all over again. Oh! Thank god you’re here. What’s wrong? Is someone hurt? Not yet, but if you don’t talk me down, I’m going to crimson and rearrange nina’s lying face. You knew about what happened at the hearing? See, you were under the weather. I just assumed that you were out of the loop. One thing I’ll never take for granted again about life in nixon falls — whenever lenny and I had problems with our marriage, they never ended up on the news. What? You found out about this on the news? Yes, and kristina also filled me in on what happened at the hearing. Yeah, I’m sure she had a mouthful to say about me. She did, but she’s hurt and confused, like I imagine you are. Phyllis, listen, you have to believe me. I didn’t want anyone to know about me and sonny. No one! Especially not like this! I know. And now sonny and carly’s marriage, it’s in trouble and he was a wreck on new year’s eve. You saw sonny on new year’s eve, alone? Nina, honey, you’re asking for trouble.
So, then willow testified that she had overheard sonny and nina talking about falling in love in nixon falls, which then sonny confirmed, also on the stand. Poor willow. Poor willow? How did carly react? You know what? I, uh — I have to meet my brother at G.H., So I’m gonna take bailey and I will leave you two to talk. You’re — you’re introducing the baby to your brother? Yeah. It’s gonna be fine. Oh, and I almost forgot. Um, figured you might be working late, so turkey on rye — your favorite. I added a banana because you always seem to steal mine. Thanks. Uh, and don’t you think for a second that my banana-stealing days are over. Wouldn’t have it any other way. See ya. Bye. Bye. Bye, sweetie. Bailey, can you say bye? “Bye.” Bye, cookie. Bye, beauty. We’re gonna work on that, okay? Okay.
[ Chuckles ] Ah! So… enough about my news. You tell me — what’s going on? Tell me every little detail. What?
[ Laughing ] About you and chase, obviously. Trina and I came up with a list of projects you can tackle at the gallery after you serve your sentence. If I had known that this plea deal meant working for you, I would’ve fought for more prison time. Well, that’s gratitude for you. Luckily, I have good news. Great. Can’t wait to hear it. You won’t be working for me. You’ll be working for trina. Don’t worry, I will break the news to spence, once he finds out what’s been going on with sonny. No, you know what? It’s okay. She’s right. We promised spencer a fun time at the cabin and considering it’s the last bit of fun he’ll have for a long time — josslyn, do you mean it? Well, I said it, so… that’s so decent of you, and I know it will mean the world to spence. Yeah, well, the way I see it, after what he did to my mom, sonny owes me and I could use some time away.
[ Chuckles ] I know that feeling. I mean, before they died, my parents were in the process of splitting up. It was brutal. It’s never easy. I’m sorry. What, um — what happened? What didn’t? I mean, you both know the drill, right? He betrayed her, she betrayed him, and they blamed each other. I was devastated. I’m so sorry. Thanks, joss. But I’m not. I may have been just a kid, but it taught me a valuable lesson. There’s a circle of hell reserved for people who tear families apart. No, no, no, no. Nothing happened with sonny. Trust me, whenever the two of you are together, something happens. You have unresolved feelings for each other. Whether you act on those feelings or not is beside the point. Right now, being together — even casually — is inappropriate. I know. You’re probably right.
[ Sighs ] But? But you said so yourself — sonny has unresolved feelings for me. What point are you making? Well, I was chatting with my friend ava and she got me thinking. We all deserve happiness in life, right? And I know this sounds crazy, and, right or wrong — and not now, not now — but what if sonny’s happiness lies with me? See, that’s the man I married. Because that’s who I am, carly. When you said you had reasons for keeping the truth about you and nina from me… …what reasons? What other reasons? The other reasons were that — that what happened with nina doesn’t — doesn’t matter, doesn’t exist, or whatever. That’s not the truth! That’s not the truth! What do you — what do you mean, that’s not the truth? The reason you didn’t tell me is because you knew I would ask the inevitable question. Do we have to do this? Yes, we do! I asked you last night, and I’m gonna ask you again, and if you can’t answer me, you’re gonna have to turn around and leave. Do you have feelings for nina? Do you have feelings for nina?!
Spencer’s working for me? But it’s your gallery. Yes, but I-I won’t be there very much in the coming months. Nikolas and I are planning to renew our vows. You know, our first wedding was so last-minute and we want to plan something very elegant. And in my absence, you will supervise spencer. That’s no better. No offense, trina. You think I want this? Excuse me. Trina, trina, wait. Oh, sit down, spencer. We’re not finished here yet. Cameron: I know how you feel. My family was torn apart last year when franco was killed. I…almost let my anger get the best of me. Sometimes, uh, anger can be fuel.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Oh, excuse me. Um… hi. Hold on. Just give me one second. Hey, what’s up? I’m at the metro court with ava and spencer and things just went totally sideways. Sorry. I, um, got a little intense there. No, no, it’s fine. You’re — you’re entitled. Thanks. It’s just that, um, I didn’t grow up with my biological family, and the family that chose me imploded. That’s probably why I’m so devoted to spence. I mean, he’s my family now. Makes sense. But as far as anger… you don’t agree? Look, I’m sure you’re right. Anger can be fuel. But we can’t let it overrun us. Isn’t it anger that drove you and spencer to stalk ava? It’s complicated, carly. I have feelings for nina, but I’m — I’m getting over it. You just don’t get over that.
[ Scoffs ] You speaking from experience? Oh. Don’t do that. Wh– don’t — don’t even do that. When you asked me about jason, I was honest. Yeah, but you didn’t tell me right away. I told you within days. Did I not answer every question you asked? Yeah. And I’ve been asking you for months to tell me what happened in nixon falls and you consciously kept it from me! But that wasn’t me. But when you were with jason, that was you. I don’t blame you for how you felt as mike, but you owed me the truth. You owe me the truth! Carly, we’re not gonna be able to get through this if we’re not under the same roof. You said you weren’t nina’s victim. And now I realize how true that was. You were her accomplice. How many times have you told me that sonny and i shouldn’t ignore our feelings for each other? I advised you to come to terms with your feelings. That’s very different. Well, if sonny and carly separate — if — then… do you think it’s possible that sonny and i could be together? First, I’ll answer the question you asked. Yes, it’s possible. Now I’ll answer the question you didn’t ask. If it’s possible, do I think you should act on your feelings? Hell no.
So, basically, spencer would be working as a handyman? Has he ever even held a hammer? I don’t think it’s just about the work. Ava is not making this easy on him. He and esme stalked ava for months. They made implied threats to avery, and, oh, yeah, they set ava’s car on fire. Look, I know that spencer’s our friend, but after what he’s done, he’s getting off easy. I admit, I had a little fun at your expense. You mean kicked me while I’m down? That’s low, ava, even for you. Mm. Still, not quite as low as leaving a teddy bear with a murderer’s voice for my child to find. But why involve trina? Because, aside from paying for what you did to me, your true task is to make restitution to trina. Do you think that I need the money that you doing odd jobs at the gallery will save me? Restitution isn’t only about money, spencer. It’s about righting wrongs… repairing what’s been broken, restoring what’s been stolen. I never took anything from trina. Can you honestly say that you didn’t hurt trina? One of my greatest regrets is how I treated trina. I should’ve been honest. I should’ve told her that i already had a girlfriend. And I shouldn’t have asked her to cover for me when she didn’t realize that I was actually going after you, so… but I just don’t think that I’m gonna be able to make that up to her. You can try. You know, framing a few pictures at the gallery with trina, that’s — that’s not gonna fix the trust that you’ve broken. But trying to make her job easier, that — that could go a long way. I think they calmed down a bit. They were pretty intense for a while.
Thanks for listening. Anytime. You know I always got your back. You’re right. About the anger thing and about what spence and I did to ava. Guess I’m still a work in progress. We all are. Trust me, I am not judging. If you knew what anger drove me to do when franco was killed… do tell. All I’ll say is that I was impulsive and I was reckless and I am just very grateful that I had people around me who were patient and forgiving. Angry cameron sounds, um, quite intriguing. And you’ll never meet him. Not if I can help it. That was trina. Sounds like spencer’s super unhappy with whatever ava cooked up for his restitution. Trina’s there? Uh… spence didn’t mention that, uh, she would be at the meeting. Maybe he didn’t know. Well, even if she is, what’s the big deal? We’re all friends here, right? Well, hello, sweetheart. It’s so nice to see you. Are you all snuggly and comfortable with your daddy?
[ Chuckles ] It’s about time I got to meet my niece. She’s beautiful. Oh, that’s all her mother. Yeah, definitely. I think you had something to do with it.No. Well, I should get back to work before epiphany notices. Congratulations. And I will see you later. I’ll see you later. Well, I-I can’t believe my little brother’s a father. Well, bailey’s not the only good news in the family. Hmm? Am I imagining things, or do you and elizabeth seem… closer? I-I-I think maybe elizabeth and i have decided to see… where this can go. Well, what finally changed? She did, mostly. I mean, she’d been through a lot since, uh… well, I just think she thought maybe that she’s ready now. Well, it’s been a tough year for both of you. I’m glad you can look forward to the future together. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. And what about you? What does your future hold? Me and chase, we’re — we’re friends. There’s nothing going on with us. Come on, now. I saw the energy between you two, and don’t argue with me on this. I have a nose for these things. Okay, this isn’t the reason why you came here. No. So, how is carly taking the news about sonny? That’s why I am so steamed. I — carly is so angry at sonny right now — and rightfully so. Of course. But — but she’s also torn because she desperately wants to forgive sonny, but this was just a really — a massive betrayal to get past, so… well, if you can forgive my dad…
[ Sighs ] Yes. Your father and i have forgiven each other for many things. Then carly can forgive uncle sonny, can’t she? I’m sorry if that was blunt. No, it’s okay. I just don’t want you to get so worked up when you’re recovering. Some of the responsibility for this situation lies with me. No, phyllis, no. What did you do? If I had been completely honest with you after sonny regained his memory, you might not still be fantasizing about a future with him. Well, as lenny would say, “it’s never too late for settin’ straight.” So, nina, are you ready to get real? Nina’s accomplice? You’re her protector. You told me to lay off her. I didn’t want a war. Well, look where that got us. You promised me that nina would stay away from our family, but that didn’t stop the two of you from reminiscing at the hospital chapel together. I mean, are you kidding me? Are you gonna stand in my way now? Are you, sonny? Are you gonna ask me not to go after nina, after she fired the first shot at the hearing? Are you? I don’t know what that’s gonna accomplish. Just forget about nina. “Forget about nina.” Like you have? Alright, so… you don’t want to trust me. You don’t — you don’t want to forgive me. Am I wasting my time? Are you saying that there’s no hope for our marriage?
You know, fatherhood has been great so far, but without my job, I’m — I kind of feel useless, like I don’t have a purpose, and I get the feeling that I’m starting to bug brook lynn. First things first, alright? Being a dad — greatest job there is. And there’s nothing useless about spending time with your little girl. That being said, I understand that your suspension has made you feel restless. That’s not gonna last forever. Here’s hoping. As for brook lynn? I thought you two were, um…good friends. Well, usually, we are. Hmm. But lately, our — our vibe has been off. I mean, hanging out with brook lynn, it’s — it’s effortless. But lately, it’s just been awkward, like… I’m not sure what’s come between us.
[ Laughs ] You’re wearing her, bro. Coparenting bailey with brook lynn has brought a new dynamic into your friendship and there is bound to be some bumps in the road as you try to figure things out. Yeah, I guess that makes sense. Yeah. Everything else is gonna fall into place. How can you be so sure? Comes with frequently being right.
[ Chuckles ] Just think about everything you overcame this past year, and you’re still standing, literally. Thanks to you. And your own resilience. You know, I — I know I’ll never have your optimism, but I hope to be able to learn to embrace life the way you do. Hi. It looks like you already have. Where are you going? I’m trying to find our waitress. I can’t stand to be here one more second.
[ Clears throat ] So I’m gonna get my dinner to go. After all, I did pay for it. Ava ambushed both of us. I didn’t know she was gonna have me supervise you. I’ll decline. No, don’T. I’m — I am grateful for the opportunity to work for you. If you’ll have me. Why not? Good help is hard to find. Thanks, cam. What do I owe you? On the house. You’re a lifesaver. And, joss, um… I hope your mom and stepdad can weather this storm, and if they can’t, doesn’t mean you can’t emerge strong anyway. Thank you. I’ll see you both soon. Thanks again for the caffeine and for the cabin. I know what it’s costing you. Am I crazy, or did that almost seem sincere? You’ve always — always — been real with me. That’s why I value our friendship so much. And I hope we continue to be friends after I say this. Okay, give it to me. Sonny may not see himself as a victim, but what you did to him — pretending not to know who he really was, keeping him from his family, including the grandson you both shared, allowing him to fall in love with you — that was a violation, and the only way for you to make this right is to leave sonny alone. What if sonny doesn’t want to be left alone? Let carly and sonny figure this out. Whatever the next step is, it’s not yours to take. If there’s any chance for us, you need to be honest with me. I already admitted that I — that I have feelings for nina. It’s confusing. It’s compli– I don’t want to have these feelings, carly. That’s as honest as I can be. You said you didn’t have sex. Did you kiss her? Did you touch her? It doesn’t matter. It matters to me. Why do you want to hurt yourself like — you’re already hurt. I can’t forgive you if I don’t know what I’m forgiving, right? But you think this is gonna help, but it’s not gonna help. It can’t be worse than what I’m imagining in my head, sonny! Tell me!
[ Sighs ] To move forward, you have to forget. For me to move forward, I have to know every last detail. That was mike. I’m sonny. Your daughter wanted you to have that cookie.
[ Door opens, closes ]
On the next “General Hospital” —
