General Hospital Transcript
Jordan: Officer Perez, please keep an eye on Mr. Corinthos. He’s been recently released on bail. We’re just waiting for the paperwork.
Perez: Got it.
[ Keys jingling ]
[ Indistinct conversations ]
Jordan: Do everyone a favor. If that reporter gets in your face again, walk the other way. Everything okay?
Curtis: That’s just what I’m trying to find out. I really need your help.
Willow: Michael. [ Sighs ]
Alexis: Well, this is a surprise.
Harmony: Hey, I just got off work. Can I pick your brain about something? Like, only if you have a minute and I’m not interrupting.
Alexis: Yeah, I just put the—the last edition to bed, so… What’s this about? Is it about Willow?
Harmony: Kind of. Um, it’s more about Nina Reeves.
Nina: Hey. I don’t know why I’m always so surprised to see you here. You own the bar, after all.
Sonny: Yeah, well, that’s true. Uh, Phyllis had to see a distributor, and, um, you know, i-instead of closing down during the dead zone, which is between 12:00 and happy hour, I-I said that I would cover.
Nina: That’s very sweet of you. Nostalgic for runny a bar?
Sonny: Well, it’s better than sitting in my office all by myself. Too many ghosts, you know — especially with Jason gone.
Nina: I hear you.
Sonny: Were you gonna see Phyllis? You want a drink?
Nina: Um, both, actually. I was following up on something important.
Sonny: Is there anything I can help you with?
Spencer: Hey, Grandmother.
Laura: Oh. [ Laughs ]
Spencer: Wow. It almost seems like you missed me.
Laura: [ Laughs ] I did! Oh, my goodness. A month in Spring Ridge didn’t hurt you at all.
Spencer: Except label me a convicted felon. I guess I’ll be serving sandwiches and soft drinks at Kelly’s for the rest of my life.
Nikolas: Worry about your future later. Let’s take a moment and celebrate your homecoming. I got dinner reservations at the Metro Court. Mother, I hope you and Kevin will be able to join us.
Laura: I don’t know about Kevin, but I can certainly make it. Spencer, is everything okay?
Esme: Spence is just wondering why I’m still here. Don’t worry. I was just leaving.
Victor: Johann, my friend, if we want people to believe we’ve done nothing wrong, then we must act as if we’ve done nothing wrong — which we haven’t. I showed Drew a tarot card, for heaven’s sakes. If a crime was committed, it was when he attacked you.
Johann: On your orders.
Victor: Which was a test… which he passed — until the Corinthos woman showed up — forced him to reveal that he was just playing along and that the whole thing was a set-up right from the start. That, uh, warning that Eileen Ashby gave me about Laura being onto me seems like it has some merit.
Sam: Hi. Welcome back.
Drew: Long trip.
Anna: Yes. I got a cab from the airport, and Felicia is filling Maxie in.
Sam: We were worried when we didn’t hear from you in Austria.
Anna: I didn’t want to call from an unsecure line.
Drew: Does that mean that you and Felicia found something out?
Anna: Yeah — proof that Luke’s death was no accident. He was murdered.
Esme: Unfortunately, I won’t be joining you all for dinner. Spence has made it clear he no longer considers me a part of his life. I’m leaving.
Laura: I– would — would you two like a little time to talk this through? I mean, you don’t have to rush on our account.
Nikolas: I apologize for springing dinner plans without checking with you first, but, Esme, I’m sure Spencer wouldn’t mind if you join us. We all shared in Spencer’s ordeal at Spring Ridge — you, especially.
Esme: I’m not sure.
Laura: Please, come along.
Nikolas: The whole family will be there — Ava and Victor.
Nikolas: Is that a problem?
Johann: The plan you put together relies on taking everyone by surprise.
Victor: I’m not overly concerned. The only possibly damning thing I mentioned was operation Demeter, and if Drew has no memory of that op, then he and Laura are gonna hit a dead end.
Johann: But you are concerned about something.
Victor: Anna and Felicia’s investigation into the cable car accident that killed Luke.
Johann: [ Whispering ] You had to kill Luke Spencer. He was getting too close to the truth about what you were planning.
Victor: Well, nothing can be traced back to me, which is why I need to find someone else to take the fall for Luke’s death.
Johann: I’ll do a lot for the cause. But I hope you’re not expecting me to be your fall guy.
Victor: Don’t worry. I have someone else in mind.
Ava: Hi. So, am I, uh, late for the big family dinner, or are you early? And is your friend here gonna be joining us?
Anna: So, this employee at the Transportation Bureau — he did admit to sabotaging Luke’s cable car. And there’s no indication as to whether he was acting alone, but my gut says that he wasn’t. And unfortunately, before we could get any more information out of him… the man took his own life in front of us.
Sam: Okay, so, technically, we have one man’s confession, but no evidence to back it up.
Anna: Right, so far. And all of our efforts to try to keep this quiet have just failed. Plus, now the Bureau is officially involved.
Drew: Well, wait — won’t the Bureau have a better chance of finding a connection between Victor and Luke’s death?
Anna: Just because the WSB is investigating doesn’t mean that I will be privy to their intel, because I have been deemed “too close” to the situation because of my history with Luke.
Sam: Basically, you were iced out.
Anna: Yeah. But we do have to keep in mind the fact that Victor was the director of the WSB for a time. That is a lapse they do not want to revisit. They don’t want his name to come up. They don’t want to draw any scrutiny. So I think it’s possible they will steer this investigation down a path that proves not to be embarrassing to them. So, you see, what I’m saying is, if we want to expose Victor, you really are our best chance.
Drew: Yeah, about that — um… we hit a little bit of a snag.
Curtis: So, what has TJ told you about our situation with Marshall?
Jordan: Your father? Not much. I think TJ’s been avoiding the subject, considering my history with Tommy.
Curtis: Okay. What did Tommy tell you about our father?
Willow: How awful was the night in jail?
Michael: Mm, I mean, I got a cell to myself, so no complaints.
Willow: You don’t have to be a hero for me.
Michael: Well, “A,” I’ll always want to be a hero to you, and, “B,” honestly, spending the night in jail was, uh — was worth it, because that reporter got what he deserved for trash-talking my sister.
Willow: At least you didn’t break his jaw.
Michael: Uh, yeah, but I can’t be sorry that I hit the guy. But…I am sorry that Nina is probably gonna use this against me now when she petitions the court for visitation with Wiley.
Willow: Uh, let’s not worry about that right now. I’m — I’m so sorry I wasn’t here when you were booked.
Michael: It’s okay. I appreciate that. But there’s nothing you could have done. Diane — she handled everything. But, hey, you’re here now. I, uh, heard from my mom that you were held up at work…?
Willow: That’s what I told Carly when she texted me, but I wasn’t being honest with her. Or with you.
Harmony: Nina’s trying to enlist my help to see Wiley without going to court.
Harmony: She wants me to influence Willow. And she says Wiley’s grandfather is on her side.
Alexis: But you don’t want to get involved?
Harmony: I just — it could cause so much tension between me and my daughter.
Alexis: Okay, I don’t want to get involved e-either, because Wiley is Kristina’s nephew, so I want to stay out of any potential conflict between Nina and Willow. And I suggest that you do the same thing.
Harmony: [ Sighs ] I wish it was that simple.
Nina: Actually, I’ll have a club soda.
Sonny: [ Chuckling ] Okay. Uh… all right. Get you a little glass here.
Nina: [ Chuckles ] Thank you. Perfect.
Sonny: All right. Now that that’s taken care of… how about the help? Or not — I mean, you don’t have to say that.
Nina: No, sonny, it’s not that I don’t want your help. It’s just I don’t think that you should offer it.
Sonny: It this about Wiley? You talked to y– the lawyer. You’re gonna file a petition?
Nina: Well, I haven’t talked to him yet. Have you tried to talk to Michael again?
Michael: You want Josslyn to rely on you, right?
Sonny: Of course I do. Why wouldn’t I, Michael?
Michael: Why the hell would she when you prioritized Nina?
Sonny: Oh, that’s not what happened. How many times do I got to —
Michael: that’s exactly what happened. Look, dad, you claim to be a family man, right? But a family man wouldn’t sabotage his wife and kids to protect the woman who blew their lives apart.
Sonny: You done?! What do you want from me?!
Sonny: [ Breathes sharply ] Uh, y-y-you know, um… I couldn’t — I-I couldn’t get in any word with Michael ’cause he’s — he’s very stubborn.
Nina: Yeah, well, I wish I could walk away from this for your sake, sonny, but —
Sonny: No, hey, you’re allowed to see your grandson. And, uh, I’d do the same… if I were in your shoes.
Nina: Yeah. I’ll try not to get you involved.
Sonny: No, I’m — Nina, I’m already involved. You know, look, the — the… the choices you make, your family’s pain, your pain… it matters to me.
Sonny: But you gotta know, if you — I-if you go to court on this and, uh, lines are gonna be drawn, sides are gonna be taken. And if I don’t take a side, that means I’m taking your side.
Nina: Well, Sonny, I would never, ever ask you to choose me over your son. No. I wouldn’t do that.
Nina: So if you have to go against me in court and support Michael’s attempt to block my petition, then I’ll understand that.
Sonny: [ Sighs ] Right, l-l-let’s just — can we just hope it doesn’t get to that?
Nina: Yeah, we can hope. But you need to know this — that I will do whatever’s necessary to ensure that I have a role in my grandson’s life.
Anna: So, let me get this straight — in trying to save you…
Sam: Carly blew the scam wide open.
Anna: Oh, no.
Drew: Yeah, but we did — did get one piece of intel before Carly arrived.
Sam: Victor mentioned operation Demeter.
Anna: I don’t know what that is. I mean, what is she, the goddess of harvest? She presides over the cycles of life and death.
Sam: Wait, so I-I-is it not familiar to you?
Anna: No, no. “Operation Demeter.” Uh, but I can access the WSB files.
Drew: Well, a lot of the ops that I did when I was a seal are classified.
Anna: Okay, did you reach out to Kim? She was the only one that knew you back then.
Drew: Yeah, she doesn’t remember me ever mentioning it.
Anna: I don’t see an operation Demeter here. No, uh, there’s nothing here in the files.
Sam: Uh-huh, so the operation probably originated with U.S. Intelligence.
Anna: Or it’s above my clearance, which is entirely possible. Or the operation went so horribly wrong that they’ve deleted all records.
Victor: Johann and I were catching up on some business while I was waiting for the rest of the family to arrive.
Victor: I, uh — I think that about covers it, Johann. So, um, thank you, and I’ll, um — I’ll get in touch.
Ava: Oh. Thank you very much. [ Sighs ] You must have had some super pressing business to have a meeting here at the Metro Court before our family dinner.
Victor: Uh, pressing? Yes. As important as family? Never.
Ava: Well, I completely agree. Though, you know, I can’t seem to recall what you said that you were doing for work these days.
Victor: Perhaps that’s because I never told you. Why do I get a feeling you’re playing me because you want something?
Ava: Because, Victor, I always want something. And I usually get it.
Laura: Well, I think you both know that Victor’s not my favorite person.
Nikolas: Mother, I hope you’ll still join us. Wouldn’t be a family celebration without you.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Laura: Excuse me. Oh. Oh, dear. Um — boy, I completely forgot. It’s the chairperson from the traffic commission reminding me that we have a meeting in ten minutes. Oh, dear. You know, it’s been rescheduled so many times that I don’t feel that I can cancel. Could I just meet you over at the metro court? Okay, thanks. Welcome back, sweetheart.
Spencer: Thanks. See you.
Laura: See you.
[ Door closes ]
[ Keys jingling ]
Spencer: Uh, father, Esme and I have some things that we need to say to each other first.
Nikolas: Of course.
Spencer: In private.
Nikolas: Okay. You’ll still join us for dinner? I’ll hope for the best. Esme.
Esme: I was hoping to be gone before you returned, but your grandmother almost convinced me that we could talk things out.
Esme: Yeah. I mean, you saw her earlier. Apparently, Laura’s warming up to me.
Spencer: When did that happen?
Esme: She thinks I might actually be a good influence on you. Unlike what your friends think.
Jordan: Tommy was only a couple years older than you. His memories of your father were vague. He — he rarely mentioned him.
Curtis: Maybe he remembered something that he didn’t think was important at the time.
Jordan: If he did, he never shared it with me. Besides, Tommy was far too young for Marshall to confide in him about entering Witness Protection.
Curtis: If that’s what really happened. [ Sighs ]
Jordan: What are you saying?
Curtis: Marshall didn’t outright say that he was in witness protection. I inferred, and he didn’t deny it.
Jordan: Did you learn something that contradicts that?
Curtis: Possibly, and that’s why I need your help to shed some light on it.
Curtis: Marshall applied for a job, and, uh, he confided in me that he had an arrest record. A sealed arrest record, which might explain why he disappeared and let us believe that he was dead. But you have access to that record. You could unseal it and let me know anything important that Marshall might be keeping from me.
Jordan: I’m sorry, Curtis. There is no way.
Nina: I say we take a vote. How about this? We stop talking about Wiley, we stop talking about court petitions, and we stop talking about family feuds.
Sonny: I second that motion.
🎵Every now and then
Sonny: you want some more club soda? Because I —
Nina: Oh, no, I-I better not. I’ve got to drive later.
Sonny [ Chuckling ] Uh-huh. Okay.
Nina: So, did you refill those decanters at your penthouse?
Nina: Right, and you’re not tempted by all the displays, all the bottles here?
Sonny: Uh, baby steps.
Nina: Well, those baby steps are pretty big. I’m proud of you.
Sonny: You know, it’s not going to be easy. I mean, right? But the — the — the plan was to let Phyllis have the bar, right?
Nina: Right. But life gets complicated. So do you still want to follow through on that plan?
Sonny: Well, I’m just trying to convince her that — that it — it’s her bar.
Nina: Yeah, I don’t think it’s gonna take a lot of persuasion, because — think about it — Phyllis owning the local watering hole? Just — it’ll feel like old times. Well, almost.
Sonny: You mean like when we were back in Nixon Falls?
🎵All of the things that were weighing you down
Sonny: That was our home.
Nina: Yeah, that life seemed real. But it wasn’t… because you didn’t know the truth about yourself. Now everyone knows the truth, right, Sonny? And it’s up to you and I to decide what’s real.
Willow: Oh, it’s — it’s nothing serious… but I fainted in an empty patient room.
Michael: Willow, you fainted? Why? Are you sick? Why didn’t you tell me sooner?
Willow: Like I said, it wasn’t serious. Okay, I hadn’t eaten all day, so I was dehydrated. Between parenting Wiley and studying for my nursing exams, I-I was wearing myself thin. But Epiphany took good care of me.
Michael: Okay, well, I have to thank her, but I just — [ Sighs ] I wish you would have told me sooner.
Willow: You were spending the night in a cell. I didn’t want you worrying about me. It’s not like you could do anything about it. And I lied to Carly because she’s busy dealing with Josslyn. She didn’t need to worry about me, too.
Michael: I hate that you were alone. I mean, that — Epiphany’s great, but she was on duty. She — she couldn’t stay with you.
Willow: I wasn’t alone. My mom showed up for me.
Alexis: So what is so complicated about you staying out of Willow and Nina’s business?
Harmony: Well, things are… [ Clears throat ] Always complicated when it comes to my grandson. Thank you for the advice about Nina. I’m going to go. I’m going to let you go back to work and get out of your hair.
Alexis: Is there anything else you wanted to talk to me about?
Harmony: No. Um, is Shawn around, though? I’d really like to avoid him.
Alexis: I don’t think that’s going to be a problem because Shawn went to San Francisco, and I really don’t know when he’s coming back.
Harmony: Oh, Alexis, are you okay about that?
Alexis: Things got a little tense between us before he left.
Curtis: Hold up. You’re not going to help me?
Jordan: Hunting down sealed records and then unsealing them without a court order — that’s illegal, Curtis. You were in law enforcement. You know that as well as I do.
Curtis: The man is lying to TJ and me. I have questions. I need answers, and you have the ability to get them.
Curtis: When has that ever stopped you?
Jordan: [ Scoffs ]
Curtis: You didn’t think twice about getting Laura’s sealed arrest records for Cyrus Renault.
Jordan: That’s not the same. I was being blackmailed. TJ’s life was at stake. I had no choice.
Curtis: Right. Because TJ’s family. And you and I are not that to each other anymore. Is that how it is?
🎵Moment you’re living
Nina: Are those 45s? What are they doing here?
Sonny: What? Oh, Phyllis, she, uh… She wants to add a vintage jukebox to the place, but then she figured out that it would block the customers’ path to the tables, to the bar.
Nina: Oh. Oh, well, that’s too bad.
Nina: I loved it when we played music at The Tan-O.
Sonny: [ Laughs ]
Nina: [ Gasps ] Oh. I remember when we danced to this song.
Nina: Oh, my goodness! I cannot believe she has a copy of this. This is a great song. I totally forgot about it. Wait. I know how it goes. I goes, um… Something like… [ Singing ] I woke up in the morning [ Hums ]
Sonny: You want to–
Nina: Or, no, it’s a slower thing.
Sonny: No, but it’s–
Nina: [ Singing ] I woke up in the morn–
Sonny: It was—You’re doing good, but it’s not quite like that.
Nina: [ Singing ] I woke up in the morning…
Sonny: Let me show you something.
Nina: [ Singing ] I woke up in… The morning…
[ Mid-tempo music plays ]
Nina: Oh, yeah. I love this song.
Nina: I wish we could have danced to it.
🎵 When I wake up in the morning
Sonny: We still can.
🎵 And the sun shines in my eyes
Sonny: [ Hums ]
🎵 Oh, I can’t help but think of you / You’re like a drug in my life
[ Both laughing ]
🎵 Addicted to how you feel / Oh, it ain’t easy, no / To sleep alone without you here / To be honest, I wasn’t ready / Oh, we were a great…
Jordan: You’re not being fair.
Curtis: What’s not fair is that you won’t do this for me after everything you put me through.
Jordan: I know you’re going through a lot right now, and I know we have a lot of unresolved issues from our marriage, but do not conflate the two, and do not, under any circumstances, come in here and tell me how to do my job or what code I can or cannot live by.
Curtis: Jordan —
Jordan: Let me finish. I thought we were in a good place, but you’ve come way too close to destroying all that goodwill we built up. I’m not the bad guy here.
Curtis: So you really won’t look at those records for me?
Jordan: [ Scoffs ] Have you not heard a single word I said? I can’t. I’m willing to help you in any other way I can.
Curtis: You know what? Don’t even bother.
Laura: I’m due to have dinner with Victor Cassadine and family. Would it be too much to hope that you found something that can put him behind bars?
Anna: Uh, Felicia and I, we were able to access the file room at the Transportation Bureau in Innsbruck. And a certain, um, Kurt Markovic, an employee there — he became suspicious of us, but, eventually, he — he did admit to sabotaging Luke’s cable car.
Laura: [ Breathes sharply ] It was not an accident… He was murdered. [ Sighs ]
Sam: I’m so sorry you had to find out this way. I wish things could be different.
Laura: [ Sighs ]
Anna: I’m sorry, Laura. Yeah. T-the crash was deliberate. But — but I have to say that this Kurt, you know, he — he didn’t admit to targeting Luke. Um, and, unfortunately, we couldn’t get any more information out of him because he took his own life there.
Laura: [ Breathes sharply ] But we know that it was Luke. Don’t we?
Anna: Unless the Bureau find evidence to the contrary, they will proceed as if Luke was just… another victim that day.
Laura: Collateral damage? I — [ Scoffs ]
Anna: Yes, to Kurt’s fanatical cause.
Drew: Whatever that was.
Anna: So unfortunately, we are — we’re not able to connect… this crash and Luke to Victor.
Laura: Maybe not yet, but knowledge is power, and…we are off to a good start.
Ava: I suspect that whenever you reveal your big plan for the family, it’ll behoove me to remain in your good graces.
Victor: So your friendliness towards me has a more selfish motivation?
Ava: Mm. Victor, I think you know better than anybody that we all have selfish motivations. I’m just upfront about mine. Besides, Nikolas and I are married. You and I are — are family now. We’ll be in each other’s lives from now on. Shouldn’t that make us allies, able to enjoy each other’s company?
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Nikolas: Hello, beautiful.
Ava: Mm! Hello.
Nikolas: I hope you didn’t order without me.
Ava: Oh, no, of course not. But I was beginning to think you stood us up. Where’s Spencer?
Nikolas: Things are a little tense between him and Esme. [ Sighs ] Spencer wanted some time to talk to her.
Victor: Well, I hope they’re coming. I mean, this celebration is for Spencer.
Nikolas: Spencer wouldn’t make any promises.
Ava: I’m so sorry. I know how anxious you’ve been to make amends to him.
Nikolas: The reality is, Spencer and I have a long way to go before any healing takes place.
Victor: No, that is absolutely unacceptable.
Spencer: Hey, I’m glad that you didn’t leave before I returned home. We left a lot unsaid. In fairness, it’s not like I could have chased after you with 12 hours left on my sentence, Esme.
Esme: I didn’t like how we ended things, either. I mean, I tossed and turned all night, thinking you meant the horrible things you said to me — that you actually believed I was the one responsible for filming Joss and Cam doing the dirty. Thank you for realizing that wasn’t true.
Spencer: Wait a second. I never said that.
Esme: I-I’m a-a little confused. If you still don’t believe me, then what’s been left unsaid between us?
Spencer: I want to believe you. I want to believe in you, Esme. But right now, you are blaming Trina for something that I know that she couldn’t have done.
Esme: Oh, but I could?!
Spencer: I don’t know! What I do know is that you were at the cabin and that you have a side to you that is capable of going to extremes.
Esme: You mean, like what I did to Ava? Setting her car on fire? Putting her dead daughter’s hospital I.D. Badge beneath the car? I never even heard of Ava Jerome until you decided to frighten her away from your father. I mean, how do we know you’re not the one capable of filming your friends without their consent? You were at the cabin, too, but you don’t see me going around accusing you! How do we know that this isn’t all your doing?!
Nikolas: I’m sorry. I know you’re invested in healing the rift between Spencer and me, but it is going to take time.
Victor: No, you don’t understand. I gave you room to take this process as slowly as you needed to bring the family together. But I have trusted the wrong people, and now we’re running out of time. Now, Valentin and Alexis — they’ll most likely never want to have anything to do with me again, but the rest of the family must come together while they still can.
Nikolas: “While they still can”? What is that supposed to mean?
Harmony: Don’t pressure yourself, Alexis. You’re going to know when it’s time to move on.
Alexis: You know what I want to move on from is this office. And since I’m the boss, I can declare the workday over.
Alexis: So I declare the workday is over.
Harmony: [ Laughs ]
Alexis: So, um, Molly and TJ are making me a — a feast tonight…
Alexis: …To thank me for them staying with me.
Harmony: Aw, are they moving out?
Alexis: Yeah, they are.
Alexis: They found another place. I’m sad. I’ll miss them. But it’s — it’s good that they have their own space.
Harmony: Yeah. Must be nice to have a home-cooked meal.
Harmony: [ Laughs ] My motel room doesn’t have a kitchen, so…
Alexis: Ohh. Did you say “motel room”? You’re staying at a motel?
Harmony: [ Chuckles ]
Alexis: Since you left prison? That — that’s — that’s a — a year ago.
Harmony: Yeah, well, you know, it’s tough to save up for a deposit on what I make at Spring Ridge. [ Chuckles ]
Alexis: I’m sorry. W-would it help if someone co-signed a lease for you?
Harmony: What? The — someone like you?
Perez: I need commissioner Ashford to sign off on these before you can leave. Wait over there.
[ Indistinct conversations ]
Michael: So, while we wait, why don’t you tell me about Harmony?
Willow: Well, my condition wasn’t serious, but when she heard I was in the hospital, she couldn’t get there fast enough.
Michael: Well, that’s what parents do — they move heaven and earth for their kids.
Willow: Easy for you to say. You know my history. My mom is a seeker, and her love for me always Came second place to…enlightenment.
Michael: And last night was different?
Willow: Yeah. It was like the mom I always hoped for showed up. You know, she was so loving and concerned.
Michael: That must have been really nice for you.
Willow: It was. It was the first time my mom put my needs ahead of her own or some spiritual leader’s. I’m — I’m grateful. Even if I don’t know what inspired this new Harmony.
🎵 Oh, it ain’t easy, no / to sleep alone / without you here
Nina: [ Laughs ]
🎵 To be honest, I wasn’t ready / we were a great piece of work / love, love, love /
love is in the air /
Nina: [ Gasps ] Oh!
🎵 And love, love, love
Nina: [ Chuckles ] [ Laughs ] Oh!
🎵 Love is everywhere
Nina: [ Gasps ]
🎵 But peace, peace, peace / and loyalty is needed / I really wasn’t trying to /
spend my better days
Nina: Ah. [ Chuckles ]
🎵 Without you by my side / I’m living life in a daze / to be honest, I wasn’t ready
Sonny: You gotta admit, I’m pretty good.
🎵 We were a great piece of work
Nina: Um, uh, I would give you an “A” for effort.
🎵 Love, love, love
Sonny: What about execution?
Nina: Well, you’re a little rusty, but don’t worry — I can whip you back into shape. We have all the time in the world.
🎵 And love, love, love
🎵 Love is everywhere
Nina: …that’s one thing that we don’t have.
🎵 And love, love, love / love is in the air
Alexis: Well, I’m not necessarily saying that it should be me, but –
Harmony: Yeah, good, because I feel like we’re crossing a line here.
Alexis: -Yeah. -[ Sighs ] Well, what if I give you just a — help you with a security deposit? You know, a-a-as a loan.
Harmony: Uh, you know what? I wouldn’t want to jeopardize our friendship by owing you money.
Alexis: [ Sighs ]
Harmony: [ Chuckles ]
Alexis: You know what? I have an empty house, and you need a home. So why don’t you just take the next few weeks, save up some money, and… you’ll — you’ll stay with me.
Harmony: [ Breathes sharply ]
Jordan: You’re good to go, Michael. Make sure you make your court date.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Jordan: Excuse me. Commissioner Ashford.
Michael: [ Sighs ] You ready?
Willow: Yeah. Let’s go.
Michael: Hey, actually, um… look, I owe you a second apology. In addition to, you know, decking that reporter, I — I delayed our vacation.
Willow: Turnabout’s fair play — I delayed it first with the search for my birth certificate, and now you’re out on bail and have to stay in town until the assault charge is settled.
Michael: Will you, um, settle for a candlelit dinner instead?
Willow: With coq au vin, mousse de chocolat, and a lovely bordeaux? See, I already speak the language.
Michael: And you know what they say — we will always have Paris.
Jordan: The judge set a date for the trial. Diane Miller is gearing up for a fight, but there’s been no additional pressure from the Quartermaines or Sonny Corinthos. No special requests. Right. I’ll keep you posted, Robert.
Sonny: I-I-I — I don’t know. I gotta go.
Nina: Um, yeah. I have to get going, too. [ Chuckles ]
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ]
Curtis: Your office said I’d find you here. Did I come at a bad time?
Nina: No, no. No, I just — I Came to see Phyllis, and she’s not here, so I was just leaving.
Curtis: You sure?
Nina: Yeah, I’m positive. We’ll catch up soon, okay?

Curtis: [ Sighs ]
Sonny: What can I do for you?
Curtis: I need to ask you for a favor.
Spencer: Knock it off, Esme. I was in Spring Ridge when that video was released. I couldn’t have posted it.
Esme: But you told me you had means to sneak in and out of Spring Ridge, thanks to dear Uncle Victor, and you and Cam were enemies when you were kids. Maybe that sex tape was payback.
Spencer: That is not at all what —
Esme: Calm down. I don’t actually believe you did it. I was just making a point.
Spencer: Which is?
Spencer: You had motive and opportunity, but you don’t see me going around accusing you because I have faith in my partner’s character. I have faith in us — or at least I used to. But you can’t seem to extend that same grace to me, can you? Then I guess there’s nothing more we can say to one another.
Anna: Tracy and Bobbie will be informed that the crash was deliberate.
Sam: But should we tell them the truth?
Laura: I really would rather not do that. Bobbie already suspects that Luke was targeted. She does not know that Victor might be a part of this. Tracy’s in the Netherlands.
Drew: The less they know, the safer they are.
Drew: Especially because after that scam on the bridge, I mean, Victor now knows I’m coming for him.
Anna: Well, he’ll realize that the walls are closing in on him.
Laura: And anyone he suspects is working to expose him will be in grave danger now.
Victor: I apologize for my outburst. I — I suppose I was just airing my frustration with Valentin.
Nikolas: Because he doesn’t want you in his life?
Victor: Oh, don’t let an old fool project his problems onto your relationship with your son.
Nikolas: I don’t I think it’s just frustration with Valentin. This isn’t the first time that you’ve alluded that something has been eating you up, Uncle Victor.
Ava: Obviously, something important, maybe even dangerous, is — is happening soon.
Nikolas: You’ve made it clear that you couldn’t or — or you wouldn’t discuss it with us, but we are family.
Ava: We can help ease your burden. We — we can’t help you if you don’t share it with us.
Nikolas: Perhaps it’s time that you told us exactly what you’ve been planning since before you got back into town.
Nikolas: Maybe you’re right.
On the next “General Hospital” —
Josslyn (to Cam): What are you saying, that this is my fault now?
Dante (to Jordan): I don’t want this slipping through the cracks.
Esme (to Spencer): What else could you say? Because you’ve already broken my heart.
Victor: (to Nikolas): Question is: Do I have your support?
Portia (to Ava): Forgive me if I don’t find that to be a reason to celebrate.
Sonny (to Curtis): With all due respect, why is it your business?
