General Hospital Transcript
Anna: Got it, ha-ha.
Anna: Alright, let’s see what streaming on Hulu.
[ Television turns on, suspenseful music playing ]
Robert: But why bother when you know what you’ve got with a classic?
Anna: It’s called expanding your horizons.
Robert: It’s called wasting time.
Anna: Oh, gosh. You’re such a stick in the mud.
Robert: Yeah, and you love me for it. No, I don’t.
Anna: Uh, yeah, you do. I remember, it’s written somewhere.
[ Television beeping ]
Anna: [ Laughs ] Look at us. Can you?
Anna: We used to be facing down deadly assassins. Now we’re fighting over what to watch on tv.
Robert: There is a term for that.
Robert: Nah, bliss.
Anna: Mm, yeah, you might be right.
[ Doorbell rings ]
Robert: That’s gotta be trouble at this hour.
Anna: Oh, I could do with some trouble.
Robert: Uh-huh. Turn the telly off.
[ Television turns off, music stops ]
Anna: [ Chuckles ] Come on. After you. Out of the way. Let’s see who this is. Oh.
Felicia: Is this a bad time?
Phyllis: Hey. Is everything okay? Um… you sounded strange on the phone.
Nina: Well, it’s been an evening. Uh, Willow Tait’s mot– oh, what am I talking about? You know Harmony.
Phyllis: Formerly known as Lorraine?
Nina: Yeah. Well, she was rushed to the E.R. There was some kind of accident?
Phyllis: Oh, no. I hope she’s all right.
Nina: Yeah, so do I.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] We don’t need a reminder, but… life is so short. We have to grab every bit of joy from it that we can.
Frank: Everything okay, boss?
Sonny: Yeah. Yeah. Somebody reminded me tonight to carpe diem.
Frank: Seize the day. Good advice.
Sonny: Yeah. Good night, Frank.
Frank: Good night, sir.
Michael: I’ve been studying up on Paris, preparing for our trip. Yes, we’re going to go to the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower, but did you know that there is a museum solely dedicated to Monet?
Michael: Yeah. It’s on the outskirts of the city, and, uh, there is this huge, beautiful park right next to it. So we gotta go there. You know, it sounds like it rivals Central Park.
Willow: Then you know who would love it? Wiley.
Michael: Oh, yeah. Well, only if there’s dogs, because nothing is cool in Wiley’s world unless there’s dogs.
[ Elevator bell dings ]
Sasha: Willow. Uh, we’d like to wait with you, but—but if you don’t want us here, then we can—
Willow: No, no, of course I want you here. Yeah.
Willow: My mom’s awake, so that’s something.
Sasha: She is? That means that there’s hope, right?
Michael: There’s always hope.
Carly: Harmony, you’re not making any sense. Do you know where you are? It’s Carly. You’re in the hospital. You were in an accident. Do you remember?
Harmony: [ Gasping ] Willow.
Carly: Willow’s here. Do you need me to get her?
[ Monitors beeping ]
Harmony: You need… you need to protect her. No matter the cost.
Carly: Okay, of course. Of course I’ll protect Willow. From what?
Anna: I’m going to open a bottle of wine, and then we can stream, like, the hottest new show on Hulu.
Robert: Or better still, we have a few shots of single malt scotch and enjoy Bogie and Bacall.
Felicia: Would it be okay if we skip movie night?
Anna: What’s happened?
Felicia: Well, it’s such a beautiful night. Why don’t we go, like, take a look at the stars?
Robert: Okay. Start talking.
Felicia: Is that the big dipper or the little dipper? I never can tell.
Anna: Alright, Miss Stargazer. What’s going on?
Nina: Oh, thank you.
Phyllis: Let me guess — you saw Sonny today.
Nina: Is it that obvious?
Phyllis: To me.
Nina: I don’t know, Phyllis. For so long, it seemed impossible.
Phyllis: And now?
Nina: And now… maybe there’s a way forward for Sonny and me. We just have to be brave enough to take it.
[ Door opens ]
Valentin: Apologies. The sign in that window says “open.” Is this a private party?
Nina: I think there’s room for one more.
Phyllis: If it’s okay with you, it’s okay with me.
Nina: Valentin, have a seat.
Valentin: Phyllis Caulfield. How are you?
Phillis: Good. And you?
Valentin: I’ll take something stronger — bourbon, neat.
Phyllis: Coming right up.
Valentin: We meet again.
Nina: So we do.
Sonny: Hey, Frank.
Frank: Yes, sir.
Sonny: I heated up, uh, some of these, uh, meatballs. Uh, you gotta try one.
Frank: [ Sighs ] I appreciate it, sir, but —
Sonny: No, just come on in.
Frank: I-I can’t leave my post, sir. I’m sorry.
Sonny: Okay. I understand, but can you just — just try one?
Frank: As you wish, sir.
Sonny: For your boss?
Frank: Definitely. Mmm. Hm. That’s delicious.
Sonny: [ Laughs ] Told you.
Frank: You sure you’re okay, boss?
Sonny: Yeah. Yeah. Just, I’m, uh… hard — you know, can’t sleep. But I’ll be fine.
Frank: Thank you, sir.
[ Door Closes ]
Sonny: [ Sighs ] [ Grunts ] [ Grunts ] [ Exhales deeply ] [ Sighs ]
Lenny: About time you arrive.
Harmony: [ Strained ] I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have attacked you, but I didn’t… [ Strained gasp ]
Carly: Harmony, I’m fine.
Harmony: I almost killed you.
Carly: But you didn’t.
Harmony: You’re the only one — [ Gasps] You and Michael are the only ones… and I almost ruined it. I ruin everything.
Carly: No, you don’t. You didn’t ruin Willow. She’s a beautiful young girl.
Harmony: I was so selfish.
Carly: Calm down. You need to calm down.
Harmony: I just [Gasps] Wanted to repair what I’d broken with Willow, and I should have told the truth… when I had the chance.
Felicia: There will be a lunar eclipse at the end of the month.
Anna: Good to know.
Felicia: Some call it a blood moon. There are some cultures where it’s considered a bad omen for pregnant women.
Anna: Well, that counts us out.
[ Crickets chirping ]
Anna: Oh, my God. You’re not…?
Mac: We just enjoyed being around Bailey so much. You know, it’s all the fun and none of the responsibility.
Robert: Except to keep the child safe and unharmed while the mother’s gone.
Mac: You know what I’m saying.
Robert: Yeah, I know what you mean. Being a granddad is great. Play with the kid, hand it back, go to bed.
Mac: Unless you don’t.
Robert: Uh, I’m not following.
Mac: What if… instead of the granddad, you’re the actual dad? What if you do the parenthood thing all over again?
Felicia: No! I’m not pregnant.
Anna: Oh, because for a second there, I thought —
Felicia: I think Mac wants a baby.
Robert: Will you stop talking in riddles and just get to the point?
Mac: I think Felicia wants a baby.
Robert: [ Laughing ]
Nina: Nice tan.
Valentin: [ Chuckles ] Thanks.
Nina: Wherever you’ve been, it looks good on you, Valentin. So, are you fully recovered? Back to your old self?
Valentin: Hope not. I’d like to think I’ve done some growing.
Nina: I’d like to think that, too. About me. Not about you. Well, maybe a little about you, too. How’s Charlotte?
Valentin: She’s wonderful.
Nina: Yeah. She seems like she’s really enjoying boarding school.
Valentin: You’ve been in touch with her?
Nina: Yeah, I’ve talked to her. And I have to admit, I was a little surprised. I didn’t think you had it in you to part with your little girl.
Valentin: It wasn’t easy. After peter abducted Charlotte, I wanted her far away from Port Charles and Victor.
Nina: Yeah, but wasn’t Victor the one that dropped her off at school? I’m only saying that because Charlotte made it a point to say she wished it had been you.
Valentin: I was laid up recuperating. I figured, at the very least, I could trust Victor with the drop off.
Nina: Don’t forget about me. I’m always here. Especially when it comes to Charlotte.
Valentin: I like that. And I’ll keep that in mind.
Lenny: That’s right.
Sonny: This is the firehouse where I used to dance with Nina.
Lenny: Sure is. And once again, your wardrobe is lacking. Good thing I came prepared. It’s yours. Might as well take it. Oh. Perfect fit.
Sonny: [ Chuckles ] This is not real. I-I-I can’t be here. Is this…?
Lenny: Oop, oop. Give me one good reason.
Sonny: First of all, you’re dead, Lenny.
Lenny: Look who’s talking. When you crawled out of that river, weren’t you a goner? A funeral thrown for you back home and everything?
Sonny: Yeah, that was different.
Lenny: All depends on how you look at it. And it looks to me like you could use a stiff one. What’s your poison these days, Mike?
Sonny: Club soda.
Lenny: Come again?
Sonny: Oh, things have changed since the last time I saw you.
Lenny: Good thing I’ve got nothing but time. Why don’t you start from the beginning, when you went back to Port Charles?
Willow: Thank you guys for being here. It means a lot.
Michael: We wouldn’t be anywhere else.
Sasha: We love you.
Brando: And if there’s anything that we can do, at all…
Willow: Trust me, you’re doing it.
Carly: I get it. I really do. I was raised by my adoptive mother, but it wasn’t kept a secret. Harmony, the longer you take to say it out loud, the harder it’s going to be to say it.
Harmony: If I had just been brave enough, it wouldn’t have gone this far.
Carly: You mean with Neil?
Harmony: No. If I had just told the truth… there would have been more time. Things would have been different, but now it’s gone too far. And Willow isn’t safe with her. And now Willow… can never know.
Anna: Look, Bailey is the most adorable little baby, and I can completely understand Mac wishing to have one exactly like her, but —
Felicia: maybe it’s more than just wishing.
Anna: You think he’s serious about having another child?
Felicia: I don’t know.
Anna: Or adopting one?
Felicia: I mean, we haven’t gotten that far yet, and I’m not even sure what he’s saying. I’m — I’m just — I’m getting this vibe.
Anna: What about your vibe?
Anna: Well, I mean, Mac may want to raise another child, but do you want to, really?
Robert: Okay. Now, have we got that all out of our system?
Mac: Thank you.
Robert: Good. Because it’s my turn. I got a story. This is about an old man who becomes a father. Except he thinks that the diaper that needs changing is his own.
Robert: Hey, seriously. I’ll never forget the fact that you raised my little girl at a time that I couldn’t.
Mac: Helping to raise Robin was one of the ultimate joys of my life, and I will always think of Maxie and Georgie as mine. But Felicia and I, we never — we never were able to bring up a kid together.
Robert: W-wait, wait. This isn’t just Felicia? You want this, too?
Sonny: I still can’t believe that Carly and I are divorced. I thought we would last, you know, until…
Lenny: “until death do us part”?
Sonny: [ Chuckles ]
Lenny: Mm. Take it from me — death is easy compared to divorce. Phyllis can still put flowers on my grave, think of me when they’re playing our song, remember the two of us at our best, and not our worst.
Sonny: I envy her that.
Lenny: You have kids? How are they taking it?
Sonny: Well, uh, they’re young. Donna and Avery, you know, they’re a bit confused, but they miss Carly. But Carly’s really good at seeing them as much as possible.
Lenny: They’ll be all right.
Sonny: My son, who’s having a big problem with it, he’s grown up, but it’s — it’s put a strain on our relationship.
Lenny: What’s his name?
Lenny: Michael. I like that name. Is he in the “family business”?
Sonny: He wanted to be at some point, but I — I shut it down. And now, forget about it. He don’t even… he don’t even want any part of me or my life.
Lenny: Don’t give up on him. That’s an order.
Sonny: No, I would never give up on my son. But… he’s given up on me.
Lenny: What, just because you’re not with his mother anymore?
Sonny: That’s part of it.
Lenny: And what’s the other part?
Nina: [ Laughs ] Really?
Valentin: She’s already made the equestrian team. You should ask her about it next time you talk to her.
Nina: Oh, I definitely will. And I am truly impressed. I mean, I’m sure that the competition was fierce. An elite European boarding school?
Valentin: An elite European boarding school where the students not only ride, but they have their own string of expensive horses.
Nina: Fancy. Exactly my point. And she rode one of the horses at the school and she still made the team! Your daughter is a very talented rider, a true competitor.
Valentin: No argument there.
Nina: Okay. Now out with it.
Valentin: Out with what?
Nina: How badly do you miss her?
Valentin: Desperately. I miss her desperately.
Nina: Oh. Is there, like, a parents’ weekend or something like that coming up?
Valentin: I don’t know. I hope so. I’ll have to check the, uh, school website.
Nina: And it must have been really hard for you after everything that happened with Bailey.
Valentin: Yeah, I loved her.
Nina: I know you did.
Valentin: But I’ve come to appreciate that Brook Lynn did what she had to do. It was the right thing to protect Maxie’s daughter from Peter.
Nina: But it’s painful. I can see it in your eyes. You know that I know what it’s like to lose a child. But it’s even more painful when it turns out that she was never yours.
Sasha: [ Sniffles ]
[ Pill case snaps shut ]
Sasha: Do you even realize… if you would have taken one of these and they found it in your system? No. You have been given a second chance. Don’t blow it.
Sasha: [ Inhales sharply ]
[ Toilet flushes ]
[ Knock on door ]
Brando: Sasha? You okay?
[ Knock on door ]
Sasha: Yeah. I’ll be right there.
Willow: God, I’m just so aware of it now.
Michael: Of what?
Willow: All the time I kept my mom at arm’s length. Not that she didn’t deserve to be, though it was always more about protecting myself than it was about punishing my mom.
Michael: No, Willow, you had every right to want to distance yourself.
Willow: But now it’s just staring me in the face. My mom could be dying, and I can, like, feel it on my heart, all the time I could have spent with her, all the things I could have said to her. I know I made the right decision for myself back then.
Michael But you still wish you could get that time back.
Willow: So much.
Carly: Who can never know? Willow can never know that she’s adopted?
Harmony: She loves too much, too hard. She’s obsessive and possessive. She’ll try to take her away from Michael. She — she’s dangerous.
Carly: Are you talking about Willow’s biological mother? Do you know who she is?
Harmony: She’s… she’s bad for Willow, and Willow knows it. She hates her.
Carly: Willow knows this person?
Harmony: She was… one of two. My Willow, she had another half.
Carly: Had another half? Was Willow a twin?
Carly: Nelle? Oh, my god. Nina is Willow’s biological mother?
Harmony: [ Strained ] You need to protect her. Nina’s love will smother her. Please, Carly.
[ Monitors alarming ]
Carly: We’ll take care of her, I promise you. Willow will be okay; I promise you that.
Harmony: [ Hyperventilating ]
[ Monitors alarming ]
TJ: Carly, move. Ms. Miller? No pulse.
Amy: Pads are ready.
[ Paddles whine ]
Nurse: Charging loaded.
[ Monitors continue alarming ]
TJ: One, two, three, four… five, six, seven, eight…
Amy: I’m going to get the ambu bag ready.
Valentin: You know I will always regret what I’ve done to you — using Sasha to manipulate your emotions to win your heart back.
Nina: Well, the irony is, you already had my heart.
Valentin: I know.
Nina: But now I can see that your intentions were good.
Valentin: You can?
Nina: Yeah. You just wanted to give me the… the one thing that I was missing in my life. It’s a beautiful sentiment.
Valentin: Poorly executed.
Nina: Oh, poorly executed.
Valentin: And, ironically, Nelle was in town the whole time.
Nina: It’s crazy, right? I-I still can’t believe that Nelle was my daughter and everything that played out after that — that I discovered that Carly kept the truth from me, and that she had a hand in Nelle’s death. It set a chain of events in motion that continues to this day.
Valentin: Sonny Corinthos… is he a link in that chain?
Lenny: Hallelujah! You finally got up the gumption to tell Nina how you feel about her.
Sonny: Well, let me tell you something. I don’t know what we are. We’re — Nina and I are just kind of like a slow dance for now.
Lenny: Oh, you and your slow dances. They’re nice and all, but what do they get you?
Sonny: Take it easy, there, Lenny.
Lenny: Or what? I’ll bust a blood vessel? Uh, been there, done that.
Sonny: [ Laughs ]
Lenny: Yeah? You listen up. If you keep waiting for the right moment, next thing you know, you’ll be turning up daisies like yours truly.
Sonny: You know, I always appreciated you and Phyllis’ love. I mean, it was real, honest. Not always perfect, but it was tough…
Sonny: …Like you can go through anything in life. What’s — what’s the secret?
Lenny: No secret. You just try to give more than you get, that’s all. And if you both do that, you can’t lose.
Sonny: Well, you know who gave me a gift? Nina.
Sonny: Yeah. It’s a long story, but she’s not making me take sides against my son.
Lenny: That’s some gift.
Sonny: So what are you giving her in return?
[ Paddles whine ]
[ Monitors alarming ]
TJ: One, two, three. Another dose of epi. Six, seven, eight. Run the IV wide. 11, 12, 13, 14. Come on, Harmony. 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21. Don’t quit on us! 22, 23, 24, 25… 26, 27, 28, 29, 30.
Amy: Administering PPV. One, two…
[ Flatline ]
Amy: She’s in asystole.
TJ: [ Panting, sniffles ] Time of death, 10:53 P.M. [ Exhales sharply ] [ Exhales deeply ]
[ Telephones ringing in distance ]
Brando: Hi. This hospital holds painful memories. But if there’s good news tonight…
Sasha: I know. It’s a beginning.
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Carly: You need to get back to the ICU.
Felicia: I’m not sure how I feel about raising a child at this stage of my life. I mean, let’s face it, I’m a grandmother of three.
Anna: Oh, yes. But don’t let that be the thing to stop you. You’re very young at heart, and in all the ways that count.
Felicia: Well, thank you for saying that.
Anna: I mean it. [ Sighs ] Gosh. If this really is something that you and Mac both want…
Felicia: Well, that’s just it. I’m not sure. I don’t know.
Anna: Uh, don’t you think this is a conversation you should be having with your husband?
Felicia: Ya think?
Felicia: [ Sighs ] Mac and I have shared so many adventures. Raising a child together isn’t one of them.
Anna: Whatever you decide, I’ll always be in your corner.
Felicia: Thank you. Well, maybe it’s all in my head. A kid? That’s probably the last thing Mac wants. [ Laughs ]
Mac: Maybe I’ve got it all wrong. Maybe the last thing Felicia wants is a baby.
Robert: Well, there’s one way to find out. Let’s go and ask her. Come on.
Mac: What?! No, don’t. You better not, I swear. If you say anything —
Robert: What are you gonna do? [ Laughs ]
[ Door opens ]
Robert: Ladies. What’s it like out there?
Anna: It’s breathtaking. How’s the whiskey?
Robert: Mmm. Breathtaking.
Sonny: You’re absolutely right, Lenny.
Lenny: Tell me something I don’t know.
Sonny: Well, look, Nina is putting me ahead of her own interests. I should do something for her.
Lenny: Then what are you waiting for, huh? Get out of here.
Lenny: [ Chuckles ]
Sonny: But how do I get out of here? What, am I gonna catch the next plane? I mean, how do I get home? Lenny? Where’d you go? Lenny! Come back, Lenny! Come back!
Frank: Boss, what’s the problem?
Sonny: Uh… [ Sighs ] Man. [ Scoffs ]
Nina: What Sonny and I had, that was in Nixon Falls. Now that we’re back in Port Charles, he has a life, he has a family, he has responsibilities, and so do I.
Valentin: Sounds very sensible and thought out, and I don’t believe a word of it.
Nina: Excuse me?
Valentin: The tone of your voice changes when you mention his name.
Nina: D-don’t tell me that you’re jealous. [ Chuckles ]
Valentin: When you say his name, there is a notable change in the tone of your voice, and that tells me that you’re more than just two people living separate lives.
Nina: And I’m sure you’re going to tell me your opinion on all this.
Valentin: [ Sighs ] Whatever happens — maybe you get everything you want, maybe it comes crashing down — I want you to know… you can count on me.
Nina: I’ll keep that in mind.
Sasha: I really thought that Willow’s mom was going to be okay, that she was going to make it.
Brando: Hey, we don’t know anything yet, okay? M-maybe she’s gone into surgery, she’s taken a turn for the worse and —
Sasha: Or I could have killed her.
Brando: Hey, it was an accident. Listen to me. Willow knows that. Everyone knows that.
Sasha: Why is this happening?
Willow: Oh, my god. She’s gone, isn’t she?
TJ: We did everything we could. Willow, w-we did everything we could. I’m so sorry.
Willow: [ Crying ]
Felicia: Oh, no, thank you. We should probably call it a night.
Mac: Busy day tomorrow.
Robert: Yeah. You should get the rest while you can.
Felicia: What’s that supposed to mean?
Robert: Chief of detectives. On call 24/7, right?
Felicia: Look, okay, well, good night.
Robert: Good night.
Felicia: Forget everything I said. Probably my imagination.
Mac: Dinner soon?
Anna: Yes, absolutely. Yes. Yeah.
Robert: Drive safe.
Anna: Bye. Bye.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ]
[ Crickets chirping ]
Mac: [ Sighs ] Hey, is that the big dipper or the little dipper?
Felicia: Huh. That’s the same thing I asked Anna. Do you think it would be okay to make a wish, even if it’s the wrong constellation?
Mac: I don’t see why not.
Felicia: [ Sighs ]
Felicia: Shh! Don’t say anything, otherwise it won’t come true.
Robert: To Mac and Felicia.
Anna: May they get everything they wish for.
Robert: Hmm. May the person who gets the remote get everything they want.
Sonny: I just drifted off for a second. Everything’s fine.
Frank: Bad dream?
Sonny: Actually, uh, it was a good dream. Good night, frank.
Frank: Good night, sir.
Sonny: [ Sighs ]
[ Telephone line ringing ]
[ Voicemail beeps ]
Nina: Hi, this is Nina. I can’t take your call right now, but please leave a message, and I’ll call you right back.
[ Voicemail beeps ]
Sonny: Hi, Nina. It’s Sonny. I-I just wanted to say that, uh, I was so happy to see you tonight, and, uh, I can’t wait to see you very, very soon.
Valentin: Thank you for your hospitality.
Valentin: Walk you to your car?
Nina: Wow, that’s very chivalrous of you this evening.
Valentin: I’m always chivalrous.
[ Women laughing ]
Nina: Hey, thank you for the tea.
Nina: And I will talk to you tomorrow.
Phyllis: Sounds good.
Valentin: After you.
Nina: Wow. Again, being chivalrous.
Valentin: It’s kind of an affliction.
[ Light switch clicks ]
Phyllis: [ Gasps ]
Willow: [ Crying ] The — could I just, um… could I have a minute alone with her?
TJ: Yeah, you take — you take as much time as you need, okay?
Willow: [ Sniffles ] [ Crying ]
Michael: I can… I can wait out here.
Willow: Come with me?
Sasha: Oh, God.
TJ: It’s — it’s a good thing you’re here. Willow’s gonna need her friends now more than ever.
Willow: I need you to know that I forgive you and I love you… so much more than you probably ever realized. Do you remember our picnic in that meadow in Colorado? When you braided my hair, you put all those wildflowers in it. [ Sniffles ] I don’t know if I’ve ever felt so beautiful or free. There were good memories, too, okay? Filled with magic, laughter… love. Those are the ones I’ll tell Wiley about. You hold on tight to them, Mom. I will, too. [ Crying ]
Harmony: You have to protect her. Nina’s love will smother her. Please, Carly. Please.
Carly: It’s okay. We got her. Willow is going to be okay.
On the next “General Hospital” —
Violet (to Chase): You can never have too many tea parties.
Brook Lynn (on phone): It’s so good to hear your voice.
TJ (to Britt): It was worse than I could ever imagine.
Terry (to Elizabeth): I do have something to confess. You’re not gonna like it.
Sonny (to Dante): What are you saying? I’m vulnerable or my business is vulnerable?
Michael (to Carly): I don’t know how to predict Willow from the fallout.
Willow: What was my mother trying to hide?
