THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
You know this is nice, huh? Date night? It’s perfect. Just you and me. Don’t get me wrong, I love spending evenings with wiley at home… but, uh, when he said he wanted to go stay over at leo’s, I was not going to complain. And once the baby’s here, these — these kind of nights are gonna be few and far between. Oh, and, um, sorry things got kind of crazy at aurora, and I know I couldn’t make your G.H. Appointment today. No worries, it was routine.
What is it? What is dr. Westbourne
concerned about? Oh, nothing is routine when it comes to you and our child.
[ Waves crashing in distance ]
[ Laughs ] Who would have thought? What’s that? That big, bad sonny corinthos, who loves fine dining… yeah? …His guilty pleasure’s an old-fashioned ice-cream sundae? Well, you know what? I’m just — I’m just, uh, excited that we don’t have to pretend anymore. We’re out in public. No more apologies. Yeah, I knew that was true… mm. …When you stood up for me with carly. I’ll never forget you saying that I am a part of your life, so that makes me part of your kids’ lives. I didn’t even have to say it, because the way donna and avery responded to you, it just — it made me feel like you’re already part of the family.
Your own sweet song I’m done. I’m done with you. I’m done with your boss. I’m a different person now. Well, sure you are. But tell me, cuz, why is that exactly?
[ Door opens ] Oh, sorry. I didn’t realize you were in the middle of something. Is everything okay? Do you want to tell her or should I? I-I don’t need to offer an explanation. Society setups is my business, after all, and I need to know how long it’ll take to shut it all down.
[ Sighs ] Yes, yes, I’m aware that revenues are up, but that’s not my point. Trust me, I have my reasons for shutting it all down! I didn’t want to say this in front of trina, because she’s already freaked out enough as it is. But if the police department believes that josslyn was the real target the night brando was attacked, then I’m almost certain that that killer’s not gonna stop until they zero in on trina. We can’t let that happen. I promise you both the pcpd is going to do everything possible to keep trina safe. Okay. We just all need to pull together. Right. Someone should call taggert. Trina’s father should know what’s going on. I just hoped that this year would be normal and that trina and i could go to college and be regular college students hanging out with our friends on campus. And now someone’s targeting us?
[ Sighs ] I will never let anyone hurt you. Ever.
[ Sighs ] Well, I’m glad jordan was here to make sure trina got home safe. Yeah. Oh, my god. [ Gasps ] What? Oh, my god, mom. If trina and everybody who stood by her during the trial are targets, that could be cam, too. I got to tell him. Oh, pick up, pick up, pick up.
[ Sighs ] It’s voicemail. Cam. Cam, when you get this, call me immediately. You could be in serious danger. So… I can take the sofa and you can stay in the bed. We can both stay in the bed. For cuddling. For afterwards.
[ Suspenseful music plays ] Hey! Is anyone there?
Mason was just saying that he’s having a hard time with the G.H. Insurance and billing department, and he asked me to make a few calls on his behalf. But, mason, I’m just — I’m not comfortable crossing any ethical lines. Oh, is that so?
[ Sighs ] But, um… yeah, I mean… …I suppose I can make a few calls. I’ll see what I can do.
[ Hands clap ] That’s all I’m asking. Thanks, cuz. And how lovely to see you again, maxie. Mason. Wow. Having a family that’s constantly asking for favors? That’s got to be exhausting. I mean, insurance and billing? That is not your specialty. No, it’s not. What are you doing here? Why — why are you here? I tried to call your cell, but you didn’t answer. Yeah, I kind of — I mean, I’ve had my hands full. What were you calling about? Uh, well, I know I canceled our date, but I thought maybe we could grab a quick bite before I go back to the office. I’d love to. I really would, maxie, but, um, there’s just some things I need to take care of here. Oh, yeah. No, I totally understand. I should probably just grab something from the metro court and eat at my desk. Um, I’ll see you later, though. Yeah.
[ Telephone ringing ] Gatlin-holt. Yes, I did. Um [Sighs] The patient that’s been requesting me in the E.R. — Please just let everybody know I’m on my way.
[ Receiver clicks ] Well, I know I’m gonna beef up the security around here, both inside and outside the house. And I’ll make sure a police car patrols your block. Trina is not gonna want to go into hiding or put her life on hold. Trina has the right idea. It may sound impossible, given the threats hanging over her head, but she needs to try and lead a normal life until we can catch this woman.
[ Sighs ] Um, how are we supposed to do that when we’re planning a wedding? Wedding.
[ Sighs ] Baby, I am sure jordan has been in touch with cam. What are you doing? Where do you think you’re going? Mom, cam is working right now. I have to go warn him. Yes. And you have called him, left him a voicemail, and you’ve texted him. And when he calls you back, you can tell him what’s going on. What if the killer is scoping out the restaurant or elizabeth’s house? Just waiting for cam to be alone? Who’s there? Cameron? It’s me. It’s drew. Hey.
[ Chuckling ] Hey. You — you expecting somebody else? It’s just that innocent people are getting murdered by the hook. I’m a little jumpy. Yeah. Hey, no, no, I-I get it. So then what are you doing out here all by yourself, man? I don’t know. It’s, uh… it’s oscar’s birthday. Can’t stop thinking how much I miss him. Out here, I just feel…closer to him. Yeah. Me, too. Oscar’s in my thoughts on a daily basis, but when I’m out here…
[Breathes deeply] …I just miss him a little bit less. He just hasn’t — come on, look. If cameron’s at kelly’s, that means he’s in a public place and there’s lots of people around. I need to see him! I can’t let anything happen to him. Okay, you have texted him, and you have called him. Why do you need to see him in person? Cam is my boyfriend. I need to make sure that he’s okay.
[ Waves crashing in distance ] Josslyn: I definitely judged the type of person I thought you were. But then… you kept surprising me and doing the right thing when I least expected it. Now I’ve disappointed you. Is that it? I’d be lying if I said no. Hey, sonny. Can’t dex protect us inside? It looks pretty cold out there. Well, the — the — the cold keeps him alert. Really? Yeah. Oh, wow. You’re tough. You’re really tough. You know, I still can’t get used to having a bodyguard. Well, you better get used to it.
[ Groans ] ‘Cause I’m not gonna let anything happen to you. You won’T.
[ Chuckles ]
Your own sweet song
According to dr. Westbourne, [Sighs] Everything with the baby is fine. Yeah, I know. I just w– I wish I would have been there to see it myself, is all. Me, too. I went through my first pregnancy totally alone. It’s just… such a bonus that I get to share my pregnancy with you. And maybe for most couples, you know, the everyday check-ups might seem mundane, but I — I treasure them every bit as much as you do. So believe me when I tell you, I am going to be right there with you. Promise? The way I see it? Willow, you are stuck with me forever. Forever. [ Chuckles ] That has such a nice ring to it. I’ll be right back. You’ve set a wedding date?
[ Chuckles ] Congratulations. Thank you. Thank you for that. We’re actually, uh, shooting for valentine’s day.
[ Chuckles ] Less than six months away. That’s not much time to plan. But since our divorce is now official, there’s nothing to stand in your way. Trina and I know jordan’s theory. Cam doesn’T. I need to warn him. You sure that’s all it is? Isn’t that enough? Josslyn, I’m your mother. I know when you’re keeping something from me. Fine, fine. I’ll call kelly’s then.
[ Sighs ] Did something happen between the two of you? Is this your look for the day, or are you gonna button that?
[ Dex groaning ] Uh, just gonna grab a — grab a t-shirt. Hey. No. It’s — it’s fine. I’ll do it. Thanks. Things between me and cam are fine. Except for the fact that, you know, we’re both potential targets for a killer. Yeah.
[ Sighs lightly ] I understand you’re concerned. I’ll take care of it. When I made the decision to climb mount kilimanjaro, it was meant to be a grand farewell, just spread my son’s ashes in a majestic vista that was worthy of his forever home. I’m sure oscar would’ve loved that. It’s such a magical place, man. When you’re at the — at the peak, you’re so close to the clouds, you feel like you can just reach out and touch them. Wow. Well, that’s officially on the list of things I need to do. When I got to the top, I, uh… I just sat there for a few minutes. I felt like… I felt like I was holding oscar’s hand. And I know this might sound crazy, but… it felt like he was touching mine. That doesn’t sound crazy. If it makes you feel any better, I talk to franco almost every day. You should. We should never forget them.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Hey. Carly, what’s up? Hey, um, could you do me a huge favor? Josslyn’s really worried about cameron, and he’s not picking up his phone. Could you swing by kelly’s and make sure he’s okay? No need. I’m — I’m here with cam right now. You’re at kelly’s? No, we’re on the footbridge. Why, is something wrong? No, uh, everything’s okay, um, both of you get home safe. Okay? Bye.
[ Laughs ] Mm. Wow. I am not complaining at all, but what was that for? Well, I mean, you know, an ice-cream sundae is not my only guilty pleasure.
[ Chuckles ] Stop it. You’re gonna spoil me. Yeah, that’s the plan, darling. And to think I was so concerned about what other people thought of me. I don’t care what other people think. Oh, that’s — I just care about what you think. That is not true. You care about what your kids think. Well… dante, kristina, the two little sweet ones… yeah. …They pretty much have — have accepted me. But michael and josslyn? Not so much. Well, you know, that’s a work in progress, and I’m not giving up. Oh, of course not, ’cause giving up is not your style. What is that about? What? What? Well, sonny corinthos… I think I love you. You “think”?
[ Laughs ] Yeah, okay — you’re not sure about that? All right, all right, you’re right. You deserve better than a half-declaration.
[ Breathes deeply ] Sonny corinthos, I’m sure. You’re sure about what? I love you. Oh. [ Laughs ]
[ Laughs ]
Willow? Did you like what you ordered? You barely touched anything. Uh, I’m — I’m just — I’m nervous [Chuckles] Waiting for my test results. What test results? I thought dr. Westbourne said that the baby’s fine. She did. Uh, the tests were just a precaution. Oh, okay.
[ Sighs ] Oh, you had me worried there for a second. Well, just so you know, even if the tests are just precautionary, we are in this together. Spinelli: Listen to me. I don’t care about the economic ramifications. I just need to shut it all down!
[ Sighs ] Tr-trust me. I have my reasons. No, no, no, no, no, no. That’s not soon enough.
[ Stammers ] Just — okay. Please, just s-see what you can do.
[ Breathes sharply ] Maximista? Um, what are — what are you doing here? Oh, I placed a to-go order. I’m gonna have dinner at my desk. I’ve got a long night ahead at deception. Ah. Sounds like you have a long night ahead of you, as well. Well, uh… uh, me juggling society setups has — has been more difficult than I expected. Um… this business isn’t —
[Breathes deeply] Isn’t what I hoped for when I started. Let’s stop dancing around the issue, spinelli. I know the real story behind society setups. Remember? I’m gonna call taggert, keep him in the loop. Yes, yes, yes. Unless you want to make the call. After all, you are both trina’s parents. No, no, no, I-I-I’m fine with you calling, marcus. Thank you. Okay. Thank you.
[ Footsteps depart ] I, uh, appreciate the well wishes on the wedding. I know this can’t be easy for you. My marriage to curtis has legally ended. We are no longer in limbo. Okay. Well, thank you very much. I-I-I owe you one. I do. No, you don’t owe me anything. But you do owe curtis the truth. Hey, dex. Ms. Reeves. I got you a hot chocolate to help keep you warm. That’s very thoughtful, ms. Reeves, but, um, I’m working. Just take it. The l– the lady insists. Take it.
[ Chuckles ] Thank you. You bring out the best in my boss. Oh, did you hear that? I don’t have — he didn’t have to tell me.
[ Laughs ] Oh, is he always so tough on you? No, he’s a big softie. Yeah, he is a big softie.
[ Knock on door ] Drew? What are you doing here? You sounded so tense on the phone. I just wanted to see how you’re doing. But you can’t be here. You have to leave. What are you doing here? Uh, working. The boss is inside with ms. Reeves.
[ Sighing ] Oh, crap. Looking for someone? Cameron. But I guess he’s not in yet. You’re not going inside? No. I avoid your boss and his girlfriend whenever I can. Right. It’s nice of sonny to leave you out here to freeze after almost killing you. Well, I’d like to think you’re concerned about me, but it’s just another excuse for you to hate on sonny. I don’t need an excuse. And it’s a waste of energy to tell you anything different when this is what you want to do. You have no idea what I want. Then why don’t you tell me? Cameron: Joss? What’s, uh — what’s going on?
We share everything, right? Good times and bad. Sickness and health. That sounds an awful lot like wedding vows. It does, doesn’t it? Well, you know what? I know it’s late, but the, uh — there are any number of judges who owe the quartermaines a favor. So, uh, do you want me to call one of them up, repeat those words, make it official? What if I did? Are you — you serious? You want to — you want to get married, and this time for — for keeps? I’m saying… that I never want to leave you or wiley, or this new baby. No! Get the hell out of here! Get out of my office!
[ Laughs ] What are you doing — why are you in such a bad mood? Hey, I’m just here for a progress report on my friend. There won’t be any phone calls or any paperwork for your boss to worry about. That’s very good to hear. Yeah. And you? Me? Oh, crazy. I am not gonna alert the authorities and let them know that, you know, I just completely illegally did a medical procedure on somebody with a gunshot wound. But, mason… you are never gonna speak to maxie again.
[ Scoffs ] Wait a minute. So, what this — this “virtuous man” thing? That’s — it’s not an act? Who are you trying to be some kind of good guy for anyway? Who do you think? Oh. Oh, I get it. You’re acting out a country song. You know the title of it — “the love of a good woman making me turn over a new leaf”?
[ Laughs ] Come on, austin, I know you. The real you. You can’t possibly think that maxie and you are meant to be. The lady works for a fancy cosmetics company. And you? You’re more down and dirty than, well, anyone here knows. You know, I think if she knew the compromises and deals with the devil you’ve made, she’d be running for the hills. I’m gonna choose to believe that maxie cares about me enough to accept me. And if she accepts me…
[ Breathes deeply ] …She’ll accept all of my mistakes. Right. [ Sighs ] Because you’re meant to be. I’d love to test that theory. See you around, cuz.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ] You know…I may not be a computer whiz like you are, but it doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that you went into the business of matchmaking right after ellie left you. I think deep down, you feel like if you can help other people find love, that it’ll mend your broken heart.
[ Breathes sharply ] You’re very astute. Look, spinelli, I know you’ve been in a sad place for a while now. But I have faith that you will find love again, that the right person is out there for you.
[ Waves crashing in distance ] Curtis left a message for taggert and is speaking with trina. So it’s just the two of us. And just so you know… curtis hasn’t got the results back from his genetic counselor. So until I have confirmation that curtis has the genetic markers for schizophrenia, there is no reason for me to worry trina with any of this, so… what if curtis has the dna markers? If he’s trina’s father, he could have passed them on to her. If he has the markers, then I will be the one to figure out what to do next. Well, I probably should be going. Right. Jordan, jordan, I-I-I-I — I just — I’m sorry. I-I do want to thank you, though, I —
[ Scoffs ] You’re taking care of us. You brought trina home. I appreciate that. And thank you for expediting the divorce papers. Well, it’s the least I could do since I lost the first set of papers. There’s just… so much that you don’t know.
[ Breathes sharply ] And with everything going on — I mean, the good, the bad — can’t you see that I’m right not turning everyone’s life upside down that I care about? Not now. N-not until I know for sure. I don’t understand. I-I just got here. You said that ned could turn us in for insider trading to the sec. You were the one that said we have to keep our relationship secret. Well, the longer you let me stand out here, the better chance there is for someone to see us together. Oh, my god. Come in. You were so serious about this earlier and now you’re joking around about it. You were clear. You were clear that we had to stay under the radar. I know, you’re right. You’re right. I just wanted to tell you that I walked cam to his car. He said he was on his way to kelly’S. He’s probably there by now.
[ Sighing ] Oh, thank god. Can you please tell josslyn? She’s worried sick. Yeah. Josslyn? Josslyn! Josslyn! Damn it. I know j osslyn leftto go check on cam. Oh! I’m so glad you’re okay. Uh, I’m fine. H-have you not been getting my calls, my texts? I-I was just with drew. I was gonna call you as soon as I got here. What is going on? Okay. Commissioner ashford just told me and trina that when brando got attacked outside of charlie’s, he wasn’t the intended victim — I was. Oh, my god. Wait, the cops think you were the target? Yes. Well, based on what? All of the victims so far are linked to trina’s trial. Ava was her mentor, diane, her attorney, and oz haggerty was the witness who got trina exonerated. And, joss, you testified that trina was innocent. Yes, I did, but so did you. So you could be a target, too. Sonny needs to hear about this. No. No, he doesn’T. Look, you just told me you and cam were targets for a killer. Isn’t that more important than your pride? Okay.
[ Chuckles ] Now it’s getting late. Oh. Yeah. Time for bed. What? Okay. Come on. Whoa. Boss. Sorry to interrupt, but you need to hear this. What’s going on? Someone is out to kill me and cam.
Thank you. Mmm. Do you know how much I love you? How much I love our family?
[ Breathes deeply ] Of course I do. And I love you just as much.
[ Breathes deeply ] You know, I, uh… I had a full life before I met you. And I’ve been in love, and I — I knew what it was like to be happy. At least I thought I did. With you, my whole life has changed. And you and our children are everything that I want. Till, uh, death do us part.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Uh…that’s the hospital. Must be britt with your additional test results.
[ Ringing continues ] Hello. This is willow tait. Trina is a sophomore in college. You’ve had nearly two decades to determine who her real father is. And in all that time, you’ve chosen not to pursue it. I can’t support that. I am not asking you to support what I’ve done over the years. You hear me? But now — now is what I’m talking about. Marshall being diagnosed with schizophrenia. Curtis getting tested for genetic markers. This is all about right now what’s happening, and all I’m asking you is just a little bit of time. It’s much more important than ever that you tell curtis everything now. My divorce to him is final. You’ve set a wedding date. Why go into this marriage with a big secret hanging over your head? Curtis is willing to put his life on the line for your daughter. Doesn’t he have the right to know that she might actually be his daughter, too?
[ Footsteps approaching ] Okay. I just spoke with taggert, and he is down to do whatever it takes to protect trina. Aww. He even mentioned rejoining the pcpd.
[ Chuckling ] What? Oh, my god. Wow. It’s not really a surprise, is it? I can’t think of a father who wouldn’t do absolutely anything to protect his child. Come on, joss, pick up, pick up, pick up. Ugh, voicemail. Damn it.
[ Sighs ] She’s not picking up, because she knows I’m furious with her. The police stood in this living room, and they told her to stay put. Well, you said that joss was concerned with cam. When you were her age, if you were in the same situation, what would you have done? I would’ve jumped in the car and driven straight to kelly’s, but that’s not the point. Josslyn’s supposed to be smarter than I was. Wait, what are you doing? I’m going to kelly’S. Well, then we’re taking my car. You can’t take me, because we can’t be seen together. Hey, this is about joss. To hell with the sec, okay? Let’s go. -Come on. -[ Sighs ]
Okay, thank you. I’ll, uh, I’ll see you then. So what’d she say? She wants to see me tomorrow to discuss the test results. So that means there’s something to discuss? That was my impression.
[ Breathes deeply ] Okay, that’s it. I’m coming with you. And please don’t say that it’s — it’s not necessary. No, I was not going to say that. I… I want you there. Okay.
[ Sighing ] Well, let’s get you home. Hey, we got a big day tomorrow. I know the way your mind works, spinelli. So it makes sense that you would try to codify love, make an algorithm of it so it removes the uncertainty. But in the end, you’re still taking a risk. You can trust the algorithm first, but you still have to trust your heart. Hey. Austin, hey!
[ Chuckling ] Hi! Hi. How’s it going? Mm. I, uh, I got done at G.H., And you said that you were getting some takeout from here, so I took a chance. Glad I caught you. Oh, yeah. Uh, spinelli and I, we just got so wrapped up in talking about his society setups issues. M-maxie. No, it’s okay. I told austin that society setups is your baby, but you can trust him. You know, I-I’m not exactly comfortable with more people gaining the knowledge of my level of involvement. Though I’M…grateful for your silence thus far, austin. No problem. What do you say? Can you change your plans to have some dinner with me? Oh, uh, yeah, sure. Let me just cancel my to-go order. Yeah, I should be getting going, as well. Yeah, not so fast. I need to ask you a favor. That was quick. Uh, what favor? You just said I kept quiet about your society setups or whatever. So I figure you kind of owe me one. I need you to do a little something for me on the down-low. And what’s that? I need you to run your algorithm on maxie and me. It’s been a long day. I’ll make sure a police car starts patrolling around here asap. Jordan… thank you for everything. You’re welcome. And have a good night. Babe, it’s not too late to change the wedding date. We don’t have to do a valentine’s day wedding, okay? Especially with this threat hanging over trina and her friends. Trina would want us to be happy, right? Right. Then what trina wants, trina gets, okay? Come here, baby.
[ Sighs ] Promise me that everything is gonna be okay, everything’s gonna be all right. I promise you that I will never let anything or anyone come between our family.
[ Waves crashing in distance ] You ready to go, ms. Reeves? Uh, yes, I am. Um, I’m gonna take ms. Reeves home, then I can drop you off. Thank you, but I will pass. The boss wants me to make sure you get home safe. That’s very kind of him, but I don’t work for sonny, so I’ll make my way home myself. Your call. Ready? Yeah. Um, cameron, are you sure you’re gonna be okay by yourself? I will be just fine. Okay. Oh! I’m so glad you’re okay. Are you okay? I’m fine. The only reason I let you take me home was for cameron. He’s a potential target. Make sure he’s safe. I don’t want any protection from you. In the house. Get in the house! I don’t want any.
[ Sighs ] Okay, I — I, uh, I ran into josslyn at kelly’s after I heard jordan’s theory that, uh, brando’s death was a mistake and the intended victim was gonna be josslyn. Yeah. So I brought her here, and I had my guy dex take cam home. Thank you. Yeah, I guess it’s all good here, so I’m gonna go ahead and go. Okay.
[ Sighs ] I — you have to go, I mean, so sonny can see you leave. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. If you say so, but first, um… mm. Go.
[ Sighs ]
On the next “General Hospital” —
