THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
(missing first half hour or so-we’ll have to transcribe it by hand)
She said she had something to say to me, but then brook lynn showed up and ushered her right out of the room. Weren’t you curious? I was heading into surgery. I was a little preoccupied. But I’m curious now.
[ Monitor beeping ] So, gladys is running around town with brook lynn’s corporate credit card and spending it in decidedly un-corporate ways. She treated me to drinks, plural, at the savoy. She must like you. And then she let slip that she thinks that brook lynn is pulling a scam on you.
I thought your mom would be home from the savoy a lot later than this. Well, it seems like she will be. Someone’s just using the driveway to turn around. Oh. [ Sighs ] You okay? You seem a little off. Too many pretzels, I guess. Joss, we — we didn’t have any pretzels. We don’t have to do this. No, I’m good. You sure? Yeah. Yeah, it’ll pass. Besides, don’t you want to? Well, of course I want to, but only if you do. A-and to be honest, it seems like you don’T. I will have n’neka get you a bottle of champagne. Go ahead. You deserve it. What the hell. I’d love some. Mmm. Alright.
[ Monitors beeping ] What else did gladys tell you? Nothing really. Nothing at all. She did ask me if I wanted to have a drink with her at the metro court, but, you know, I’m in the middle of my shift, so I called her a bunch of times, but she hasn’t called me back. She hasn’t returned my calls. You think brook lynn got to her? Yeah, I do. I think that’s what happened. I think brook lynn either terrified that poor woman or is paying her off to keep her mouth shut. Anyway, I hope that you have more luck with gladys than I had. I don’t need luck. Please tell me I’m having a nightmare. I remember you. Well, you should. You arrested me. Brook lynn’s music producer. Ex-music producer and a total sexist and skeezy sleaze. Now, is that any way to talk to an old friend? What are you doing here? I’d hoped you’d been dumped on a toxic waste site.
[ Scoffs ] I’m here to see the show, of course. The one on the stage, not on the floor. Okay, we don’t want a disturbance, but… if you come within ten feet of brook lynn again, you’re gonna be out on the street. Okay. There’s no need to manhandle me. I know when I’m not wanted. It’s good to see you again, brook lynn. Sonny corinthos is changing his rules, and for me?
[ Sighs ] I didn’t bring phyllis in to run charlie’s to have you stay away from her. Phyllis doesn’t know it yet, but she belongs in port charles. She could see whoever she wants to see. Even if that means you’re going to have to breathe the same air as me? Okay, nina, understand me, okay? I’m gonna tell you again. Stay away from carly. And you respect michael’s wishes when it comes to wiley. I will, I promise. I know you said that you could change the rules at any time. I just never thought it would be this soon. And in my favor. Oh. I’m doing this for phyllis. It it — if the change happens to work for you, so be it.
I know that the wsb knows more than they’re letting on to the public. What’s that supposed to mean? Well, I know that they captured a man during that assault on that compound in crete. You mean the — the one nikolas owns? Used to own. Anyway, this man that they captured, he claims to have a lead on peter august. Well, if that’s true, why is nobody telling me? I mean, I-I’m running around here like a — a chicken with no head? I don’t know. I don’t know anything. I don’t know much. I just know that this — this — the man in question, he’s demanding a — a heck of a lot in exchange for cooperation. How bad could this guy be? Well, apparently, he’s committed many crimes and acts of espionage going back decades, and the wsb, they want to prosecute him. They don’t want to cut him a deal. Oh, ava. Come on. You — you gotta help me, okay? Liesl’s life, it — it’s at stake here. Please. Who’s this guy? Oh, scott. It’s nikolas’s uncle. It’s victor cassadine. Oh, god! Ava, f or crying out loud.Now this all makes sense. That’s why nikolas didn’t help me out — ’cause he was protecting his uncle. And that’s why you didn’t help me, ’cause you were protecting your husband. Hey! You’re not drunk at all, are you? You just came in here, and you tricked me so I would spill my guts. Yeah, I did. To get the truth.
[ Scoffs ] Well, get out of here! You cretin! You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Well, I’ll tell you this, ava, though — if the shoe was on the other foot, I would do exactly what you’re doing. Okay? So, isn’t life and love all grand? I just feel so dumb. Why? Because I was the one pushing for this, and now I’m the one hitting the brakes. You’re allowed to change your mind. I know. I just don’t want to disappoint you. Joss, this is supposed to be about the two of us. Not just me. Do I want to have sex with you? Yeah, more than anything. But sex wasn’t even on the agenda this morning until, you know, it was suddenly put there. I know. Maybe it’s being at college or being around esme, who doesn’t miss an opportunity to remind me of how advanced she is. And it’s embarrassing to admit this, but you know how competitive I am, and I think a part of me just wanted to keep up. And the other part of me just wanted to get it out of the way so it wouldn’t take up all this space in my head. Well, you shouldn’t have to think about it that way. This is not a volleyball game that you have to win. I know. And I truly don’t want my first time to be about something between me and esme or about every other girl at pcu having sex. I want it to be about you and me. And I just want it to be right. Sorry, I’m late. Hi, hi. Hi. Uh, did i miss anything? No, nothing yet. I’m just glad you made it. Is everything okay? Yeah. Curtis: Everyone, can I please get your attention? Tonight is a very special night here at the savoy. So thank you all for being here. Now, it is my privilege in my honor to present, fresh from his sold-out summer tour, phideaux.

Hey, chase. I noticed mr. Brown was bothering brook lynn. Does she even know that guy? He was her music producer. They have a history. Brook lynn and the guy got into it, and I ended up arresting them both. Really? Excuse me. Brook lynn, right? Yeah. Hey. Hi. You know, I’m sorry that linc brown guy was bothering you. I would be happy to refund the cost of your ticket to make it up to you. Thanks. That’s sweet of you, curtis. But, uh, linc wasn’t bothering me. I was just surprised to see him. Thought he knew better than to show his face in port charles again. Quartermaines run him out of town? Just one quartermaine — my dad. Well, if he gets in your face again, you let me know. I was afraid that if we didn’t do it, you’d be upset and you’d dump me.
[ Scoffs ] Joss, like that’s gonna happen? Well, it’s not like you couldn’t find someone else. I mean, the girls would be lining up. Okay, “a”, that’s just not true. And “b”, the only girl I want is you. I mean, I’ve waited years to hold your hands. I could wait a little bit longer for sex. Look, however long it takes, I know it’ll be worth it. If you had enough, we could sneak out at any time. Are you kidding? Why do you look so surprised? I was just concerned that all this might be too much for you. I know this isn’t an easy birthday. It’s not. But you’re making it special for me. H-hey. Sorry, I’m late, but for good reason — I have a line on liesl. What?! Did you — did you take it to anna? Anna devane is the last person I would take anything to. Scott, please. Just don’t go to liesl’s rescue like britt did — on your own. Okay, we all want to find her. You’ve got to put wsb in the loop. I intend to go to the wsb, but when you do, you can’t make any mistakes. You know, like when you go to sonny corinthos. So how’d it go with phyllis? Did she agree to manage charlie’s? On a trial basis. It was — that’s her decision, not mine. But that’s great, right? I mean, I know how important phyllis is to you. Well, it’s the right decision, and she’s gonna be a terrific manager. Great. We’ve never hung out at charlie’S. Well, I mean, julian jerome didn’t exactly make it appealing. Yeah, that’s true. But julian is gone and phyllis is running the place, so there’s our excuse to get to know charlie’s better. So, I — I can’t help liesl tonight. So let’s strategize about your trial. I think the best defense is a good offense. We’ve got to get sonny and michael to back off. Okay, do you have something in mind? Well, the only thing you have in common with that family is you have a legitimate claim. Mmm — mnh-mnh. Wiley’s out of bounds. No, no, no, listen. Now that nelle’s gone, you have legal rights for your grandson, and you’ve got to use those legal rights, and you’ve got to push them, push them to get sonny to back off. No, but I’m not going to use my grandson. And, scott, you’re looking at this the wrong way. Michael is the one that got the llantano county D.A. To press charges on me, not sonny. Eh, michael — michael, he takes his cues from don vito. Well, maybe the pre-nixon falls don vito, but not the man that sonny is now.
[ Scoffs ] The band is amazing, and so is this night. I’ve been doing a little table-hopping, and everybody’s having a wonderful time. Great. Except you. What’s wrong? Linc brown, the band’s producer. Chase had him arrested a while back, and ned quartermaine ran him out of town. Why? Some– something he had against brook lynn quartermaine. You know, I’m beginning to think that his appearance here wasn’t a coincidence. So you think he deliberately came here to help you out when your original band canceled? I’m thinking someone put him up to it. What do you want? What do I want? For the information on brook lynn and gladys, you must want something. No, no, no, no, we’re good on that. I mean, I can kind of tell from the way we’re talking that brook lynn may soon find herself in the hottest corner of hell. That’s enough for you, is it? Yeah, brook lynn’s misery would be my joy. I mean, if you’re feeling extra generous and you want to show some appreciation, right after you give brook lynn what’s coming to her, just tell her, “austin says hi.” Give brook lynn my regards.
