General Hospital Transcript
Spencer: Good morning, Grandmother.
Laura: Good morning, Spencer. How’d you sleep?
Spencer: I didn’t.
Laura: Oh. Well, you’ve been under lock and key for a month. Maybe it takes time to get used to the comforts of home. I don’t know.
Spencer: That’s not it.
Laura: Okay, then what is it?
Spencer: You’re pregnant?! Why didn’t you say anything?
Esme: When was I supposed to tell you — before or after you called me a monster?
Spencer: Esme, please.
Esme: For the record, I haven’t taken the test yet. But I am late.
Laura: Spencer? You know you can tell me anything, right?
[ Door opens, closes ]
Nikolas: Is that a smile I see?
Esme: Mr. Cassadine. Good morning.
Nikolas: Well, it certainly looks that way. Your first night in your new place must have agreed with you.
Esme: Oh, you have no idea.
Jordan: Trina, have a seat. I just want to walk you through what’s next. In a few hours, you’ll be escorted to the courthouse for your arraignment. If you plead not guilty —
Trina: if? Jordan… I’m pleading not guilty because I didn’t do it.
[ Tray clatters ]
Alexis: Oh. You found the carpet cleaner.
Alexis: How’d you know that was in the basement?
Harmony: I’m making breakfast to celebrate my temporary new digs. I hope you like scrambled. Alexis, what’s wrong?
[ Doorbell rings ]
Harmony: I’ll get that.
Sam: Harmony. What are you doing here?
Carly: I mean, look at Avery’s schedule. She has so many activities.
Ava: [ Chuckles ] And I thought we were busy people, huh?
Carly: Yeah. Oh, I-I talked to Avery’s dance teacher, told her about the little sprain. She said it wouldn’t be a problem.
Ava: Carly, I want to tell you again how much Avery love her time with you.
Carly: Oh. Not as much as I love spending time with her. I can’t believe how fast they go from playdate to college. It’s…crazy.
Ava: You know, I-I-I heard about that awful video of Joss and Cameron. If you ever find out who’s responsible, you know, Carly, I wouldn’t blame you if you —
Sonny: Hello, Ava. Carly.
Carly: Ava and I are going over Avery’s schedule, trying to coordinate some dates.
Sonny: Oh, I thought you were talking about Trina.
Ava: Trina? Why would we be talking about Trina?
Sonny: She just got arrested for making the video of Cameron and Josslyn.
Carly: No, that’s crazy. Trina would never do anything like that, especially not to Cameron and Josslyn.
Ava: No. And I work side by side with Trina at the gallery. I couldn’t trust her more if she were my own daughter.
Carly: She was clearly set up. Esme.
Sonny: Well, you know what? I don’t believe it, either. But I don’t think Jordan would have arrested her if there wasn’t some kind of evidence of it. I mean, right?
Ava: Evidence can be fabricated, as we know.
Ava: Always a pleasure.
Carly: Where are you going?
Ava: I’m gonna go make sure that somebody pays for this.
Carly: [ Exhales sharply ]
Sonny: How’s Josslyn?
Carly: Hurt. Humiliated. But standing up for herself.
Sonny: You know, Josslyn’s been my stepdaughter for years. And if I didn’t find out about this tape from Dante, I would have had to find out from the, uh…Invader article.
Alexis: You know, I tried calling you. I-I couldn’t reach you.
Sam: What’s going on?
Alexis: Harmony’s just staying here for a little bit.
Alexis: I thought molly and Kristina might have called you.
Sam: No, I guess it slipped their minds.
Harmony: I totally forgot the sugar. I’ll be back.
Sam: So, Shawn takes off… and Harmony moves in?
Alexis: [ Sighs ]
Laura: Would you like some more coffee?
Spencer: Thank you, grandmother. This is a perfect first morning of freedom. I would dream about these when I was inside.
Laura: [ Laughing ] Spencer. You were inside for a month.
Spencer: Even worse. I had had them so recently, and the bakery was so close.
Laura: Hmm. Well, I’m glad that whatever spoiled your sleep hasn’t ruined your appetite. Quit stalling and just tell me what’s wrong.
Spencer: What makes you think that I’m stalling?
Laura: Oh, I don’t know. Maybe ’cause I’ve known you since you were a little boy. And when you stall, it looks exactly like this. Spencer, you know you can trust me. With anything.
Spencer: Did you ever do something that you shouldn’t have but you didn’t realize that you had done it until it was too late?
Laura: [ Chuckles ] Oh, boy. How much time do you have? You know, Spencer, I could fill an encyclopedia with the mistakes I’ve made. I have tried to learn from them. And hopefully, maybe I can impart some of those hard-won lessons to you.
Spencer: It’s about Esme.
Laura: I thought so. Spencer, I’m so sorry that you broke up. I really am. If there’s anything I can do —
[ Knock on door]
Laura: I bet that that’s her right now. And if it is, I can go upstairs.
Victor: Good morning.
Laura: It was so close to being one.
Victor: I just dropped by to see if Spencer — well, slaughter the fatted calf! The prodigal has returned!
Nikolas: And how is the room above Kelly’s? I know it’s a change from what you’re accustomed to.
Esme: It’s fine. It may not be a lap of luxury, but it’s clean and comfortable. And beggars can’t be choosers.
Nikolas: Oh, you consider yourself a beggar?
Esme: Oh, close enough. I mean, I can’t access my trust fund until I’m 25. In the meantime, my allowance is measured out in teaspoons.
Nikolas: Oh, the horror.
Esme: I know. “Poor little rich girl.” Guess I’m not making a very good case for myself.
Nikolas: Esme, I was joking. I know how it feels to be dependent on the largesse of family. I mean, sometimes strangers can be more generous.
Esme: And no one’s been as generous to me as you have, despite everything I’ve done to you and Ava. What’d I do to deserve your kindness?
Nikolas: Kindness has nothing to do with it.
Jordan: It doesn’t matter what I believe. My job is to gather evidence, not judge who’s guilty or not guilty. That’s up to a court of law.
Trina: Jordan, you know me. You know my parents. Do you really think I would do this to Joss and Cam?
Jordan: Can you explain how the phone that posted the video was found in your possession?
Trina: [ Sighs ]
Jordan: Trina, I can tell there’s something you want to say. What is it?
Ava: I’ll say it for her. You’ve got the wrong person.
Alexis: You can relax. Harmony is not taking up residence here.
Sam: [ Chuckles ] You could’ve fooled me.
Alexis: She just needs a place to stay. I’m just helping her out till she can afford to get a place of her own.
Sam: Okay, well, clearly, you have made up your mind and there nothing I can do to change it.
Alexis: Not that that’s gonna stop you.
Sam: Have you ever thought that Harmony’s redemption act is too good to be true? Because take it from someone who knows — the grifter’s instinct, it never leaves you. All you can do is own it and fight it. Is Harmony doing that? Or is she working you?
Victor: Hm. Not bad.
Laura: What do you want, Victor?
Victor: Well, I wanted to check up on my great-nephew here to make sure you had everything you need, now you’re a free man.
Spencer: Freedom’s not all it’s cracked up to be.
Victor: Uh-oh. Trouble in paradise?
Laura: I’m sure Spencer will tell us what’s going on in his own good time. Right now, I think we should give him some space.
Victor: What others call lies of omission I like to call truths to be told at the right time.
Laura: The time that benefits you.
Victor: Hm. You’re a politician, Madam Mayor. Surely you know the value of strategy. You can’t succeed without maneuverability and a sense of gamesmanship.
Laura: Funny you should mention that. Rumor has it you enjoy a good game of cards.
Victor: [ Chuckles ] Doesn’t everyone?
Spencer: I might just try to, uh, catch a nap, so…
Victor: Oh, uh, wait a minute, Spencer. There is something important we need to discuss. All three of us.
Esme: I should have known you wouldn’t have found me a place to stay unless you expected something in return. If this is about me putting in a good word with Spencer, he won’t listen. Not now.
Nikolas: [ Chuckles ] I’m not asking you to go to bat for me with Spencer. Not because my son stopped caring for you. But I don’t have reason to trust you.
Esme: Well, at least you’re honest about it.
Nikolas: Can you blame me? You Camerone close to driving the woman I love out of my life.
Esme: I have nothing against you or Ava. I only knew her from what Spence told me. And, I mean, I never questioned his perspective because he was in so much pain. So when he asked me for help, I couldn’t say no, even though I knew it was wrong. Of course, that was just the first of many mistakes.
Nikolas: Yes, it was. I don’t understand. If you haven’t forgiven me for the things I’ve done to you, then why are you helping me? Why make sure I have a roof over my head when you could just as easily send me packing? Of course. You did it so you could keep an eye on me.
Ava: Are you all right?
Jordan: I need to follow up on something. I’ll leave you two to talk.
Ava: Thank you. Uh, Commissioner? Aren’t you forgetting something?
Jordan: He stays. They get 10 minutes.
Officer: Yes, Commissioner.
Ava: Trina, I’m so sorry this is happening to you.
Trina: So am I.
Ava: Well, I promise you, I’m gonna do everything in my power to get you out of here and clear your name. This is a terrible miscarriage of justice.
Victor: I do regret we had to cancel your “welcome home” dinner, but let’s reschedule it, if not as a “welcome home,” then as some other kind of celebration. We do have a lot to celebrate.
Laura: We do?
Victor: Oh, more than you can imagine.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Laura: Excuse me. Jordan?
Jordan: Laura, can you stop by the precinct as soon as you can?
Laura: Is there trouble?
Jordan: I’m guessing you haven’t seen The Invader today.
Laura: I haven’t.
Jordan: Just as well. I’ll brief you when you get here.
Laura: I’m on my way.
Victor: A mayor’s work is never done.
Laura: Something’s come up. I’m sorry.
Victor: Oh, have no fear. Your grandson is in good hands.
Laura: I’m a phone call away.
[ Door closes ]
Victor: Ahh, alone at last. Right, now, Spencer, suppose you tell me what exactly is going on between you and Esme.
Spencer: Esme and I are over. Whatever we had ended when I realized that… I couldn’t trust her.
Victor: Trust [Scoffs] Is an illusion. Loyalty, on the other hand — now, loyalty is priceless. Has Esme been disloyal?
Spencer: Well, I don’t know. Has she harmed you in any way? Directly, no, but she went out of her way to hurt my friends.
Victor: Your friends. Not you.
Spencer: She tried to pin the blame for something that she did on someone else. Someone I, um… [ Clears throat ] Someone I care about. When I confronted her, she denied it. We argued, and the day that I got out of Spring Ridge, her bags were packed and she left.
Victor: I get the sense that the separation is harder than you imagined it would be.
Spencer: You don’t know the half of it.
Victor: Has our dear Esme gotten her claws into you? Has she, uh — she played the love card? Or, more insidious yet, the sex card?
Spencer: I changed my mind. I don’t want to talk about this.
Victor: No, nonsense. Nonsense. We are both men of the world, Spencer. What’s more, we’re both made of the same flesh and blood. Now, I can’t help you unless you tell me what kind of hold Esme has over you.
Spencer: Esme might be pregnant.
Carly: My priority during all of this has been Josslyn. So if she didn’t tell you about the tape, I didn’t feel it was my place.
Sonny: But you’re okay with her doing an interview in the newspaper?
Carly: That was Josslyn’s choice. Sonny, she and Cameron were being trashed on social media, so they decided to get in front of it, you know, take charge of the narrative and speak up for themselves. I’m damn proud of my daughter.
Sonny: So am I. She’s always gonna be… a daughter to me. But somebody is using that video as a weapon against her. And in my world, when somebody pulls out a knife…
Carly: you pull out a gun.
Alexis: She’s a friend who needs my help. So what am i supposed to do?
Sam: Okay. As long as Harmony is the friend that you need her to be. And, hell, if Kristina’s okay with it —
Alexis: she is. She is, okay? And thank you for understanding.
Sam: Okay. I got to go. I will be around if you need me.
Sam: I love you.
Alexis: Love you, too.
Harmony: Sam, I totally forgot to ask if you wanted some coffee.
Sam: No, thank you. Harmony. I hope this all works out for you.
[ Door opens ]
Harmony: Yeah, and by that, I think she means save up as fast as I can so I can get out of your hair as soon as possible.
Alexis Sam is very vocal about her concerns.
Harmony: Oh, I know.
Alexis: She also doesn’t make my decisions for me.
Harmony: And have you made any decisions I need to know about?
Alexis: Not yet. You know, Harmony, I, um, can’t help but notice how well you know your way around my house. I mean, it almost seems like you’ve been here before. Without my knowledge.
Harmony: Because I have.
Victor: Pregnant? Is that all?
Spencer: Isn’t that enough?
Victor: If you’re the father. Of course I am. You’re sure?
Victor: No, you’re not. A man never can be.
Spencer: Esme moved to Port Charles for me. She even broke a few laws because she thought it was gonna help.
Victor: And you feel responsible.
Spencer: Aren’t I?
Victor: Listen to me, my boy. You are a young man with your whole life ahead of you. You have a family with almost unlimited resources, a family that loves you very much, even though sometimes they have a hard time knowing how to express it.
Spencer: What are you saying? If Esme is indeed pregnant and you are indeed the father… [ Breathes loudly ] …well, we have a whole array of options at our disposal. We can pay her off. We can resettle her somewhere. We can arrange to have the child brought up by more appropriate parents. Well, we do that all the time in this family, in case you haven’t noticed.
Spencer: I’m sorry. It’s just a lot.
Victor: Alright. Let me simplify. I can arrange to have mother and child cared for without tying you down.
Spencer: Thank you.
Victor: I have to say, I’m a little relieved. I, uh — I was worried at first that you were upset about that, uh, young lady who works at Ava’s gallery.
Spencer: Trina. What about her?
Victor: Oh, haven’t you heard?
Victor: Oh, she, uh — apparently she betrayed her other friends and got herself arrested.
Nikolas: Of course, I want to keep an eye on you, Esme. You helped Spencer terrorize my wife.
Esme: Everything I did, I did for Spencer.
Nikolas: Am I supposed to believe that you don’t have a mind of your own? That you couldn’t see Spencer’s plot spiraling out of control?
Esme: I don’t know how many times I can say this. I was wrong, and I’m sorry.
Nikolas: I provided you with a place because there’s a very good chance that this breakup is temporary. And if that is true, I need to know that you’re good for my son.
Esme: In other words, you give me shelter and a chance to prove that I’m not some gold digger?
Nikolas: Well, the virtues I’m looking for aren’t as traditional as all of that. I need to know that you will inspire Spencer to be the man he can be.
Esme: According to whose standards? Society’s or your family’s? Because that’s becoming clearer by the day that those mean very different things.
Nikolas: Well, it depends on Spencer. Whatever path he chooses, will you be there? Do you really care for him?
Esme: Haven’t I proven that by now? Of course I care for Spencer. I’ve loved him more than I’ve ever loved anyone.
Nikolas: Then here’s your chance to remind him.
Esme: You don’t understand. It’s too late.
Ava: Tell me everything that happened. On second thought, just tell me what the police already know.
Trina: So, I tried to show the commissioner my phone to prove that I didn’t have the sex video on it. I pulled out what I thought was my phone.
Ava: Wait, what do you mean what you thought was your phone?
Trina: It was identical. Identical. It was the same case, same model. Then I heard a chime with a text on my actual phone. I realized my phone is still in my bag. Someone planted the other one.
Ava: And we may not know how they did it, but we know who. It was Esme, wasn’t it?
Jordan: Thank you for coming.
Laura: [ Sighs ] I saw The Invader on the way over. Trina Robinson can’t possibly have anything to do with that sex tape, can she?
Jordan: We’re exploring all angles, which is the reason why I called. There’s another piece of the puzzle I need to make you aware of. Personally.
Laura: Personally? Is that because the tape involves Cameron?
Jordan: It actually involves your other grandson, Spencer.
Carly: The first step is to prove that Esme did this to Josslyn and Cameron, and then i will make her pay.
Sonny: So I have no say in what happens? You agree with Michael that Josslyn doesn’t concern me anymore?
Carly: Michael agrees with Josslyn. And she has made it very clear that she doesn’t want you involved.
Sonny: Carly, I understand how you feel about me, but you know I will do anything for my children.
Carly: Great, great. Then — then do what Josslyn has asked and stay out of it. Have you even read the interview with her and Cam? Have you?
Sonny: Not all of it, no.
Carly: You should. It’s pretty impressive. Josslyn showed a lot of courage.
Sonny: I-I don’t need an interview to tell me, you know, how brave Josslyn is. I see it. Just — just like I see that Trina, if she’s taking the fall for this, someone else is getting away with a vicious attack on Josslyn’s name and privacy.
Carly: That someone is Esme.
Sonny: I’m not gonna stand by and let that happen. I’m gonna take care of it.
Sonny: Hey, Sam. How you doing?
Sam: I know that look. [ Exhales deeply ] Someone’s gonna suffer.
Trina: Of course Esme did it. But she wasn’t in the cabin when the video was recorded. She was in the car with Spencer on her way back to town.
Ava: Well, she didn’t have to be there physically to make the recording. It’s not that hard.
Officer: Sorry. Time’s up.
Ava: Thank you. Trina… I promise you, I will move heaven and earth to get you out of this.
Trina: Ava, do people really think I —
Ava: Hey. Who cares what people think? Your family, your friends — your good and true friends — they know you. And so does Spencer, whether you care what he thinks or not.
Laura: How’s Spencer involved? Ava. How’s Trina?
Spencer: This doesn’t make sense. How could they arrest Trina?
Victor: Well, I’d imagine the police found evidence of a crime that pointed to her guilt.
Spencer: I’m sorry, Uncle Victor, but I need a minute.
Victor: Yeah, I can take a hint. I’ll, uh, see myself out.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ]
Esme: Are you coming or not?
Spencer: I will go with you. But first, I’m gonna check on Trina and then I will get our bags and I will meet you outside!
Esme: Trina’s asleep, and we can send for our things. Let’s go.
Esme: -What am I up to? Wow.
Spencer: -It’s a fair question.
Esme: It’s not enough that you accused me of orchestrating this weekend to blow up your friendships —
Spencer: Which you denied.
Esme: Do you believe me?
Spencer: I want to.
Esme: Oh, my god.
Spencer: Which is why I’m asking, what the hell did you hope to achieve with the questions you were asking during the drinking game?
Esme: [ Laughs ] A fun night! How was I supposed to know what would hit a nerve?
Spencer: Look me in the eye and tell me that you had nothing to do with that video.
Esme: Would it even matter? After all this time together, everything we’ve been through, I can’t believe our history isn’t enough.
Spencer: Wait. You never answered my question.
Esme: You want an answer? Yeah, I do. Well, Spence, you don’t always get what you want.
Esme: Not only has Spence kicked me to the curb, but there’s a target on my back because of what certain people think I’ve done.
Nikolas: What people?
Esme: I mean, Josslyn’s mom, for one. You saw the bruises she left on my arm. Thank you again for taking me to the hospital and for putting Mrs. Corinthos on notice.
Nikolas: Someone had to.
Esme: That leaves… Mr. Corinthos.
Nikolas: Sonny? What about him?
Esme: He’s had it in for me ever since I stretched the truth about you and Ava leaving town with Avery. My misguided attempt to bring everyone together seriously backfired.
Nikolas: [ Sighs ] You let me worry about Sonny. Yeah, just work on being the person Spencer trusted, the person that he cared for and he still cares for. Can you do that?
Esme: That’s just it. Lately, Spence has put his trust in the last person he should, the person who actually did this terrible thing to Joss and Cam.
Esme: Spence thought I did it. If he won’t believe me, maybe he’ll believe his own eyes. Maybe he’ll finally see that it was wrong to trust her.
Nikolas: If Trina’s out of his life, does that bring the two of you back together?
Esme: It might have before I found out that — found out what?
Sam: First of all, that someone would even do this at all — it’s horrific. But to Josslyn, knowing that Sonny Corinthos is her stepfather.
Carly: Oh, and she knows. She knows. You should have heard the way Esme spoke to me, and she was doing it just to get a rise out of me in front of Nikolas.
Sam: Well, did it work?
Carly: Oh, yeah, he rushed to her side to defend her. I don’t know how Josslyn has managed not to slap Esme into next week. When I was her age, back in my day…
Carly: …I would’ve ripped her hair out of her head, and that’s before she tried to frame Trina.
Sam: Okay, well, that explains the smoke coming out of Sonny’s ears.
Carly: Yeah, well, Michael and Josslyn want him to stay out of it.
Sam: [ Scoffs ] Like anything’s gonna be able to stop him.
Sonny: Brick. Uh, I need you to coordinate with Spinelli, try to find a-a trail, you know, whoever did this. Yeah, I know what people are thinking, but I need to have, you know, a clean slate. So proof is absolute. You know what I’m saying? Right.
[ Knock on door, door opens ]
Ava: Hey. I need a drink. Gin if you have it, scotch otherwise.
Sonny: You can try in the bar, ’cause I don’t — I’m — I’m not doing that stuff anymore.
Ava: Huh. Kudos to Nina.
Sonny: [ Chuckles ] What — what are you doing here?
Ava: I just saw Trina.
Sonny: She didn’t do it. As you already know, it was Esme.
Harmony: Kristina was living here when she was interested in Dawn of Day. Um, and one day I waited for you to leave, and I knocked on the door, and Kristina opened it.
Alexis: You wanted to talk to Kristina when I wasn’t there?
Harmony: Yeah, Shiloh wanted me to check her out. And then, uh, we were having coffee in the kitchen, and there was, like, a mishap with the coffee maker. I don’t remember exactly what happened, but it spilled everywhere, and I helped her clean it up. And then I put the mop and the cleaning supplies back. And that’s — that’s how I knew where they were.
Alexis: Right. Uh, so just to be clear, I-I’m going to speak to Kristina about this.
Harmony: Yes. Yes, I-I want you to do that. I know I should have told you. I’m sorry, but, um, I was just, like, so ashamed of the reason why. Alexis, say something, please.
Nikolas; Clearly there’s something you’re not telling me. If there is something that you know about this video, something that involves Spencer —
Esme: No, he had nothing to do with it.
Nikolas: [ Exhales deeply ] Good. Then what is it? I can’t help you if I don’t know.
Esme: Please, Mr. Cassadine, I know you want to help. It’s just —
Nikolas: Go on.
Esme: I-I-I’m sorry. I have to — I just need to get some air before I —
Nikolas: before what?
Esme: I’m sorry. I just need a minute.
Spencer: Grandmother, you’re here. Why didn’t you tell me Trina was here?
Laura: I didn’t know until I was on my way over.
Spencer: Where is she?
Jordan: Trina’s in the interrogation room. You can go right in.
Laura: Why did you let Spencer in to see Trina? Do you believe that my grandson is involved in this?
Trina: It’s funny how things work out.
Spencer: There’s nothing funny about this.
Trina: Sure, there is. The last time I saw you, you were the one in custody. Now it’s my turn.
Sam: Oh, I wish Jason were here.
Carly: I wish that about a thousand times a day every day, but especially right now. You know, he would be able to figure out how Esme framed Trina, and he’d be able to stop me from losing my mind.
Carly: Did you, uh, hear from Monica?
Sam: About Jason?
Carly: Yeah, she wants to have him declared legally dead. I mean, I heard about it from Britt, and then Monica reached out and said she wants to do it because she thinks it’ll help Jason’s kids move on. What do you think about that?
Sam: Uh… I think it seems impossible… saying goodbye to Jason.
Carly: I’m never gonna be able to say goodbye to him, you know.
Sam: We’re gonna have to try. Carly, we’re gonna have to try to move on.
Carly: Yeah, I feel like I’m moving on from so many things right now. And you have, too. I’m sorry. How are things with you and Dante?
Sam: They’re — they’re — they’re great. Um… listen, I… had to try really hard… to find the strength to move on from Jason. So maybe it’s possible that if you find your strength, you’ll be able to move on from Sonny.
Sonny: What do you want, Ava?
Ava: The same thing you want.
Ava: Justice. I know Trina. She’s good. Hell of a lot better than either of us.
Sonny: Faint praise, low bar, is that what you’re saying?
Ava: Fair point.
Ava: So… we both know that she would never do this to Josslyn and Cameron.
Sonny: Carly’s convinced it’s Esme.
Ava: Carly’s right. And if Carly and I agree on something, it’s got to be true. Now… …what are you gonna do about it?
Sonny: I’m on it.
Esme: “‘We refuse to be victims,’ says Josslyn Jacks. Cameron Webber echoes that sentiment. ‘Whoever thought they could shame us into hiding has made a serious mistake.’” [ Laughs ] No, they didn’t, Cameron. The mistake was all yours, Trina.
Alexis: I have to go to work.
Harmony: Okay. Do you want me to leave?
Alexis: We’ll talk about it later.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ]
[ Thunder rumbling ]
Carly: Well, I divorced Sonny. I mean, that counts as moving on, right?
Sam: Not really. But, um, you know what? I’m gonna give you a pass on this one because you have a lot to deal with. You need to just stay focused on Josslyn.
Carly: She’s gonna get through this. And going public with what happened to her and Cam was a good first step. Now we have to make sure her best friend doesn’t pay for a crime she didn’t commit.
Spencer: I rushed over as soon as I heard.
Trina: Why? So you can tell Esme that it worked?
Spencer: You know I didn’t believe Esme when she accused you.
Trina: Which time?
Spencer: To be honest, I thought that Esme did it. But now, if the commissioner has evidence —
Trina: Planted evidence. You know better than anyone that I would never deliberately try to hurt Joss and Cam.
Spencer: Then why did you do it?
Jordan: Other than being at the cabin the night the video was taken, I’m not so sure Spencer was involved at all.
Laura: He seemed upset about something this morning.
Jordan: Maybe Spencer’s adjusting to leaving the system and returning to normal life.
Laura: I’d like to believe that. But then there’s his Great-Uncle Victor, who’s always ready with a helping hand.
Victor: Ah, Nikolas. Glad I found you. We need to talk about Spencer.
Nikolas: Later. Did you see Esme outside?
Victor: Oh, as a matter of fact, I did. As I was pulling in, another car was pulling out. I saw Esme in the back seat.
Nikolas: Who was driving? Which way did they go?
Esme: [ Grunts ]
Sonny: Esme. Nice of you to join me.
On the next “General Hospital” —
Sasha (to Brando): You in this?
Brando (to Sasha): Definitely.
Dante (to Chase): Where’s this coming from?
Brook Lynn (to Lucy): I’m sorry, but the answer is no.
Maxie: Let’s explore other options.
Spencer (to Trina): I want to believe you.
Scott (to Portia): This case is loaded with opportunities.
Nikolas (to Victor): Why would she just take off without a word?
Sonny: All you gotta do is confess.
