Nikolas: I need three bedrooms. Actually, let’s make it four. Three’s sounding a little bit cramped. Uh, two-car garage. Uh, one cellar is preferable, but not essential. Tomorrow. Yeah. Yeah. No, this can’t wait. Okay. Alright. Thank you in advance. Bye.

Sonny: What was that about?

Nikolas: That was a realtor. I need to find a house. ASAP.

Sonny: I told you, you can stay here with me.

Nikolas: And I appreciate that, but I just don’t think that it’s going to look very good…in court.

Sonny: Uh, what’d you do now, Spencer?

Nikolas: I didn’t do anything. It’s what I’m going to do.

[ Door opens ]

Laura: Hi!

Nikolas: Mother. Hey. What — what brings you by?

Laura: You invited me.

Nikolas: I did. Ahh. T-thank you for coming. Thanks.

Laura: Oh, my goodness. You are really distracted. Did something just happen?

Nikolas: [ Sighs ]

Ramona: Hey! New girl! That’s my seat!

Esme: I-I’m sorry. I-I didn’t know that this seat was yours.

Ramona: I can’t stand people like you. Think you’re entitled to everything.

Esme: Okay. I said I was sorry. I had no way of knowing that the seat was yours.

Ramona: You don’t want to do that.

Esme: What?!

Ramona: Get the guards involved.

Elizabeth: Mom.  What are you doing here?

Carolyn: I came in for some coffee.

Elizabeth: In Port Charles? I made it clear to Dad that I didn’t want to see either of you.

Carolyn: Yes, you did. I’m in town to consult on a psychiatric patient.

Elizabeth: You’re here for work?

Carolyn: Yes. And…no. I’m also here hoping to try and reunite with my daughter.

Sam: Hi!

Dante: Hey. Uh, what’s going on? Where are the kids?

Sam: Um, they’re at a sleepover with Leo.

Dante: They’re at a sleepover with Leo?

Sam: Yeah. Mm-hmm…

Dante: Ohh. Could that mean that we, uh — we have some alone time?

Sam: Oh, yeah. We’re alone now.

Dante: Mmm. Oh, damn it!

Sam: What?

Dante: Well, I have to work tonight. I have to go see Heather Webber at Spring Ridge.

Sam: I know. The timing is perfect.

Dante: What? Wait. How can the timing be perfect?

Sam: Because… I am coming with you.

Austin: Mason, what have you done?

Mason: Take it easy. I told you, I just offered little Georgie a treat. She turned me down, though. Either she doesn’t like lollipops or she’s been warned against strangers. Thing is, is that I’m not gonna be a stranger if I visit her again. Little kids can be so trusting.

Austin: You wouldn’t dare.

Mason: Then don’t make me.

[ Knock on door ]

Ava: Knock, knock! Am I interrupting?

Austin: No, no, not — not at all. Hey. Can I help you with something?

Ava: Yeah. You told me to come by.

Austin: Oh, the referr– I’m so sorry. Give me one second. That’s — yep.

Ava: Hey.

Mason: How you doin’?

Ava: Do I — do I know you? You — you look so familiar.

Mason: Oh, I’m this guy’s cousin. I — I come to visit every now and then.

Ava: Odd. I’m having the strongest sense of déjà vu right now. Oh, no. I-I remember. You were there when I was attacked.

Josslyn: Cam, what are you doing here?

Cameron: Looks like I’m interrupting. So, is that it, Joss? You’re with Dex now? Is he the reason why we broke up?

Cameron:  I’m out of here.

Josslyn: Cameron. Cameron. Can we not do this in the hall? Please. [ Softly ] Please.

Dex: Look, man, I’m sorry that you —

Cameron:  No, you’re not, man. You are loving this.

Dex: Trust me, I’m not.

Cameron:  You guys are probably laughing your asses off about how clueless you think I am.

Josslyn: Do you really think I’d do that?

Cameron:  I don’t know, Joss. I really didn’t think you were gonna dump me. And I sure as hell didn’t expect opening the door to another man tonight. So I guess I don’t know what you’re capable of, Joss. What am I doing here? Screw you both. Get the hell out of my way!

Dex: Cameron. Wait.

Josslyn: Cameron. Cameron! Wait!

Carolyn: Can we sit? Please? [ Sighs ] So… how are you doing?

Elizabeth: You mean now that I know the truth?

Carolyn: I know it’s a lot to process.

Elizabeth: Finding out that I’m indirectly responsible for someone’s death? Yeah. It is.

Carolyn: You’ve had to confront a lot of trauma. Maybe…talking can help you contextualize your feelings.

Elizabeth: Oh, stop talking like a shrink. You’re not my doctor. And you don’t get to help me pick up the pieces, not when you’re the one who messed with my head.

Carolyn: I know you’re angry. I’m here. Whatever it is you need to say to me —

Elizabeth: Why did you stay with Dad?

Dante: Wait. Y-you want to see Heather?

Sam: Oh. God, no. If I never see that psycho again, it’ll be too soon. I want to talk to Esme Prince.

Dante: Why do you want to talk to Esme?

Sam: Because of Esme’s old nanny, Maggie Fitzgerald. Spencer said that Maggie was the only one that Esme could count on, so I was hoping that maybe hearing her name might jog her memory.

Dante: I’m assuming you want to find out something more specific.

Sam: Well, Esme told Spencer that Maggie had some information about her biological parents. According to Spencer, Maggie wrote something in a letter implying that Esme’s birth father was somewhere maybe in New York State — possibly Port Charles — which means…

Dante: She might have made contact with her father?

Sam: And maybe he’s the overprotective sort? I mean, what if he is behind The Hook attacks?

Dante: Okay, but The Hook being a woman — your theory is maybe he hired this woman to get revenge on Esme’s enemies?

Sam: It is a theory. And since you can’t talk to Esme without a lawyer present…

Dante: Ohh! Look at you!

Sam: Yes.

Dante: You’re pretty good.

Sam: Yeah. I think it’s a gift.

Dante: Mm-hmm.

Sam: So what do you say? We work together on this tonight?

Dante: I say… let’s do it.

Sam: Okay.

Dante: Yeah?

Sam: Yeah.

Dante: Good.

Mason: I’m sorry that you were attacked, but I wasn’t there.

Austin: Ava.

Ava: Hmm?

Austin: Uh, perhaps you would like to elaborate?

Ava: Oh, gladly. Um, I was stabbed — or, more precisely, hooked the night of the Quartermaine charity picnic. And you were most definitely there.

Mason: Blood or no blood… when I call, you answer. And it will be, “yes, sir,” and, “thank you, sir,” when I give you instructions. You got it?

Austin: Loud and clear.

Mason: I was at the picnic. But that’s all.

Austin: Ava… a-are you suggesting that my cousin, Mason, was the one who attacked you?

Ava: Oh, I’m not suggesting that. Not yet.

Sonny: Spencer, sit down and tell me what you’re gonna do before you do something stupid. Is this about Nikolas?

Spencer: It involves my father, yes.

Sonny: Alright. I know you’re angry, but you’re too young to try to get revenge and ruin your life. I promised you that I would take care of you. You got to trust that I can do that.

Spencer: This is something that I need to do on my own.

Sonny: What — what are you planning?

Spencer: I’m gonna make sure that my father doesn’t ruin anyone else’s life.

Nikolas: I just received my settlement agreement for my divorce.

Laura: Oh, I’m sorry.  You know something? Even when you’re expecting it, when it comes time to finally sign those papers, it’s hard.

Nikolas: Yeah, I can hardly believe that it’s happening. What makes it even more difficult is… I’ll be leaving Wyndemere.

Laura: Where are you going? You’re not leaving town again, are you?

Nikolas: No, I’m not, but Ava and I agreed that she gets Spoon Island in the divorce.

Laura: But Wyndemere has been your home ever since you first came to Port Charles. Why would you give that up in a divorce? And why does Ava want it anyway? Just so she can tear it down?

Nikolas: Spite.

Laura: You know, I — I guess that makes sense, but why are you agreeing to it?

Nikolas: Because… she’s entitled to her rage. I was unfaithful. I’m having a baby with someone else. I mean, we both need a new start, and there’s no better start than a new baby, right?

Laura: know Esme was arraigned today, right? She’s been remanded to Spring Ridge awaiting trial.

Nikolas: Okay, I’m glad the court is taking her pregnancy into consideration, not sending her to Pentonville. She’s gonna be safer in Spring Ridge.

Esme: Please, whatever you do, just don’t hurt my baby!

Ramona: You think you’re special just because you’re having a kid?!

Heather: How ya doing, Ramona? And you’re right about one thing. Esme is special. And so is her kid. Understood?

Ramona: Sorry, Heather. I didn’t realize she was your friend. My mistake.

Heather: Yeah. Spread the word.

Esme: Um, thank you for intervening. I don’t know what she would have done.

Heather: Nothing to worry about now. Or ever again.

Esme: Sorry I was short with you before.

Heather: [ Chuckles ] Hey. I can be a little extra sometimes. [ Chuckles ] So… friends?

Elizabeth: Dad cheated on you, not only with Reiko, but so many other women.

Carolyn: I remember them all, Lizzie. And I could have divorced him, ended things before they got out of hand. But I chose to focus on the life we were building together.

Elizabeth: Why let him treat you like that? Honestly. Don’t you have any self-respect?

Carolyn: Dad and I had a good marriage. We have a good —

Elizabeth: As long as you look the other way. How could you forgive him again and again?

Carolyn: I love him.

Elizabeth: More than you love me?

Mason: The papers — they already said that The Hook Killer was a woman, so definitely not me.

Ava: The media gets stuff wrong all the time.

Mason: [ Scoffs ] I don’t have to listen to this.

Ava: You know, the cops wanted to interview everybody that I interacted with that night, and I… I forgot to mention…

Austin: Mason Gatlin. G-A-T-L-I-N.

Ava: Oh. Of course. Same as yours.

Austin: Well, only half.

Mason: I live in Pautuck. [ Scoffs ] I don’t even live in Port Charles.

Ava: So what you doing here?

Mason: Visiting my cousin. Right, Austin?

Ava: And how often do you “visit”?

Mason: Only when necessary.

Austin: Which is really never. Uh, sadly, Mason’s really got to get going now. Isn’t it time for you to get back on the road and head home? Isn’t that right? Cuz?

Mason: Yeah. Awesome.

Austin: How much of that did you hear?

Ava: Enough to know you don’t like your cousin very much.

Austin: Eh… thank you for the assist.

Ava: My pleasure.

Austin: Just… don’t do it again.

Esme: Thank you.

Heather: Don’t worry. Ramona will make sure all the inmates know you are under my protection now.

Esme: I don’t know what I did to deserve your kindness, but I do appreciate it.

Heather: Oh, you don’t have to do anything. The moment I saw you, I just knew, deep down, we were the same. Didn’t you feel it?

Esme: Honestly, all I’m feeling right now is overwhelmed. I mean, people keep telling me that I’m a-a criminal. And, honestly, all I am is scared. I mean, what if I did all of those horrible things that I’m accused of? I mean, what if I… really killed all of those people?

Heather: Then I’m sure you had a good reason.

Esme: What reason could I possibly have?

Heather: Like protecting your child. A good mother will do anything to make sure that her child is safe and happy.

Esme: I’m sure you’re a great mom.

Heather: You think so? I do my best. I really do my best.

Spencer: I cannot think of two worse parents than my father and Esme.

Sonny: Well, okay. So what are you gonna do?

Spencer: I’m gonna hire Diane and I’m gonna sue for custody of the baby.

Sonny: Diane said she would take the case?

Spencer: She is considering it.

Sonny: You think you’re ready to raise a child?

Spencer: No, of course not. Not while I’m still living here. And that’s what the house is for. So the kid will have his own room. I’m gonna hire a live-in nanny. I have my own money now. Granted, this house is going to need to be on a much smaller scale than what I could afford if I had full access to my trust fund.  I’m gonna call Ava.

Sonny: Okay. Wait, wait. Sit down. And you need to slow down.

Spencer: I want you to know that I can take care of a little brother or a little sister. I really can.

Sonny: But what you’re saying proves that you can’t.

Dexter: Call me after so I know you’re okay?

Josslyn: Mm-hmm. Why are you here?

Cameron: Right now I do not know.

Josslyn: You could barely look at me at Kelly’s.

Cameron: I found out about Willow’s cancer, and I kept on thinking about what you said — that we have been friends forever. And I wanted to be here in case you needed me. But you didn’t.

Josslyn: I’m sorry that happened.

Cameron: Or sorry you got caught.

Josslyn: You didn’t “catch” me. I wasn’t doing anything wrong, Cam. We broke up.

Cameron: Like 10 minutes ago!

Josslyn: Cameron, over is over. And I’m so sorry that I hurt you. I really am. But as far as who I choose to spend my time with…

Cameron: Oh, that’s what we’re calling it now.

Josslyn: I don’t owe you anything.

Cameron: Well, tell me this, Joss. Did you at least wait until after we had broken up before you slept with him?

Ava: Just trying to help. After all, it’s the second time I walked in on your cousin threatening you. And I don’t much like bullies.

Austin: And I’m truly grateful.

Ava: Are you sure?

Austin: Yeah, I am. But y-you don’t want to get involved in this. It’s not your fight. You don’t want to be in the middle.

Ava: Fair enough. But what does he have on you? I have to know.

Austin: Uh, okay, well, the good news is it’s not blackmail.

Ava: What’s the bad news?

Austin: It’s just old family business.

Ava: Eh, your Cousin Mason seems to think it’s pretty current.

Austin: Yeah, I don’t care what Mason thinks. I’m gonna live my life the way I want to… and that’s far away from the Gatlins.

Cameron: You slept with him while we were still together.

Josslyn: I didn’t want it to happen that way.

Cameron: You just couldn’t help yourself.

Josslyn: Cam, I — listen. It was New Year’s. I went to Kelly’s to break up with you.

Cameron: I know. I was there.

Josslyn: No, no, no. This was before. I went there, and you were out. You were on a catering job. So I went home to change for Britt’s party, and I went to Pier 55, and I got attacked, okay, by The Hook.

Cameron: Wait. What?

Spencer: What did I get wrong?

Sonny: Pretty much all of it.

Spencer: This child is my sibling. Of course I’m gonna pay attention and love it.

Sonny: Okay. You know what? Love is a starting point. You got to support the child, emotionally and physically. They have to know that you’re gonna be there. And I’m talking from experience.

Spencer: Please.

Sonny: Took me a long time to learn to be a father and what I — I came to the conclusion that being a good father means you got to show up. You got to rock the child. You got to make the child laugh, make sure they feel safe. If they fall down, you pick them up so they can try again. And let me tell you something. You raise a child… it stops becoming about you. It’s all about them. So… you gotta ask yourself. You think you’re ready to raise a child?

Carolyn: I am sorry I made you feel that I chose your father over you. At the time, I truly believed it was best for you to forget what happened with Reiko. I wanted to save you from the crushing guilt you were feeling.

Elizabeth: But, still, why stay with Dad when he was the one that caused so much of that hurt?

Carolyn: Was I furious with Jeff? Of course I was. But the damage had been done. I did what I thought was best in an impossible situation. We’ve given each other a lot to think about. I should go.

Elizabeth: Wait.

Nikolas: I’m glad you brought up Esme. She and the baby are why I wanted you to come by tonight.

Laura: Oh? Go on.

Nikolas: Well, I want you to know that I plan to sue for full custody of my baby. And I-I hope that I have your support.

Laura: Well, I can certainly understand you wanting to raise the child.

Nikolas: Well, Esme certainly can’t, especially if she’s in prison.

Laura: I don’t think the D.A. will charge Esme for The Hook murders. I think that she will be tried for making and distributing revenge porn. And if she’s found guilty, she will probably receive a relatively light sentence.

Nikolas: I don’t care what happens to Esme as long as I can keep her away from my child.

Laura: Are you saying you wouldn’t even want her to have visitation rights?

Nikolas: Absolutely not. Even without her memory, Esme is not fit to be a mother.

Laura: Not allowing that child to see his or her mother is a mistake, one that you would regret.

Esme: Oh!

Heather: What is it? What? Happened?

Esme: Nothing. Um… the baby just kicked.

Heather: Ohh —

Esme: Oh, please don’t!

Heather: Hey. It’s okay. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. It’s just seeing you like that reminds me of when I was pregnant with my daughter. It was such a miracle, feeling her kick inside me for the first time.

Esme: Sorry for overreacting.

Heather: Ohh. [ Chuckles ] Just the hormones, right? It happens to the best of us. May I?

Esme: Um… maybe when we know each other a little better.

Heather: Okay. Sounds like a plan. You know, I understand that you feel scared about being a mother. But trust me. You’ll be a natural.

Esme: You really think so?

Heather: I do. I think that baby is very lucky.

Esme: “Lucky” is not the word I would use when you have a mom in prison.

Heather: Hey. You are not going to prison.

Esme: What makes you so sure?

Heather: Hm. Just trust me. Soon enough, the cops are gonna realize there is no way that you could have been The Hook Killer.

Esme: Was there a break in my case? Another suspect?

Heather: Oh, the PCPD is very good at following breadcrumbs. They’ll get there.

Sam: What do you think they’re talking about?

Dante: I don’t know. Do you want to go find out?

Sam: Yeah. Will do.

Dante: Hey, Heather.

Heather: Oh!

Dante: Do you want to have a little chat?

Heather: Well, I-I’m a little busy right now.

Dante: Come on. Don’t make me fire up the bus to D’Archam, alright?

Heather: Okay, Detective Handsome. I’ll be right back. Can we at least talk over there?

Dante: Yeah.

Heather: Samantha.

Sam: Heather. Esme.

Esme: Um, look, if you’re a cop, my lawyer told me not to talk to the police, so…

Sam: No, I’m — I’m not a cop. I’m a private investigator. My name is Sam McCall. I’ve been looking into your background.

Esme: Why?

Sam: I don’t think you’re The Hook.

Esme: And those other things?

Sam: Well, yeah. Y-you did those.

Esme: Oh, great.

Sam: Look, you — you deserve to know who you are and what’s going on.

Esme: Thank you. Um, but I’m afraid that I can’t help you. I don’t remember anything about my past.

Sam: I think maybe there’s someone who does.

Esme: From what I’ve been told, I’m all alone in the world, so…

Sam: Actually, that’s not true.

Laura: I think that Esme deserves the chance to be a mother. Listen. If she fails at it, that’s a different story. But listen. She might not.

Nikolas: Esme is a sociopath!

Laura: [ Sighs ] I visited her in the hospital. All I saw was a scared young woman.

Nikolas: You spoke to Esme?

Laura: Yeah. I was curious about the memory-loss thing. I guess I wanted to see for myself.

Nikolas: And?

Laura: She’s pretty convincing. She only said one thing that sort of stood out to me.

Nikolas: What’s that?

Laura: She seems to think that Spencer could be the father of her child.

Sonny: I think your heart’s in the right place. It’s just you’re trying to figure out what to do with your own life.

Spencer: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right. There’s so much that I don’t have figured out. But the one thing that I do know… is that I want to save this baby. I want to save this baby from being betrayed by my father… of being abandoned when it becomes inconvenient.

Sonny: Sorry you had to ever feel that way, Spencer.

Spencer: Yeah.

[ Knock on door ]

Sonny: Yeah? Frank.

Dexter: Sorry for interrupting. I need to get something straight with you.

Cameron: The Hook attacked you?

Josslyn: It was so scary. It was so scary. She kept coming for me. And I almost got away. And then I fell. If Britt hadn’t shown up, I’d be dead.

Cameron: But are you okay? You’re not hurt, right?

Josslyn: No, I’m not hurt. I’m fine. Britt saved my life.

Cameron: I am so sorry that you had to go through that. But what does that have to do with this?

Josslyn: Britt fought the hook. But it wasn’t until Dex showed up that The Hook ran away.

Cameron: Right. And you were so grateful to him that you just had to have sex with him!

Elizabeth: I can understand how you wind up making bad choices.

Carolyn: Thank you for hearing me. I have come all —

Elizabeth: I’m not forgiving anything, but I know how someone can do something unforgivable in extreme circumstances.

Carolyn: Have you done something you think is unforgivable?

Elizabeth: If I did, I wouldn’t talk to you about it.

Carolyn: Of course. Sorry. Now I really do have to run. But if on the off chance you do want to talk more, I’ll be staying at the Metro Court.

Elizabeth: How long will you be in town?

Carolyn: Until I finish my consultation. So a few days, maybe longer. It’s impossible to say just yet.

Elizabeth: Right. Well, I hope it works out.

Carolyn: Elizabeth, in my experience, very few things are truly unforgivable. Often it’s just a matter of time.

Josslyn: Cam, I did not sleep with Dex out of gratitude.

Cameron: I-I don’t want to know the reasons. Just admit that you lied to me.

Josslyn: I didn’t lie. I didn’t lie!

Cameron: Yes, you did, Joss! With that whole B.S. speech — “It’s not you, it’s me.” You never once mentioned Dex!

Josslyn: Cameron, it wasn’t about Dex.

Cameron: No.

Josslyn: Yeah. That’s right. We just grew apart. We did! We grew apart! We saw each other less and less. And when we did, I would hear myself saying all the right things, but I didn’t feel the way that I felt before.

Cameron: Because of what Esme did?

Josslyn: No. No. Because of me. I changed.

Cameron: Yeah, you started sleeping with Dex!

Josslyn: No.

Cameron: Yeah. Yeah. And you — you broke up with me so you could continue sleeping with him and not feel guilty about it.

Josslyn: I told you — I had already decided that we were over long before that night. I just hadn’t found the time to tell you.

Cameron: I’m sorry I got in the way of your hook-up.

Austin: This is your referral. Dr. Partha. The best plastics guy on the east coast. Should be able to deal with that scar that The Hook left, maybe even remove it all together.

Ava: Thank you very much.

Austin: You’re welcome.

Ava: I’ll give him a call. For what it’s worth, I do know a thing or two about family “disagreements.” I am the daughter of a crime boss, after all.

Austin: Oh. Yikes.

Ava: Yeah.

Austin: You ever just want out?

Ava: At first, I wanted in. I wanted it all. Yeah, I didn’t know that I was a Jerome until I was an adult, so… what about you?

Austin: Me? I — I — I had a great childhood. It was amazing. And then things started to get a little weird when I lost my dad. Jimmy Lee. He was a great guy. And he would have wanted me to stand my ground. So that’s what I’m gonna do.

Dante: What do you want with Esme?

Heather: What kind of question is that?

Dante: Well, I know you, Heather, and I know you like… collecting babies.

Heather: Oh, come on. Alright. So my maternal instincts got me carried away once or twice. As for Esme, I want nothing from that girl except the best for her.

Dante: That’s good. ‘Cause you remember the only reason you’re here at Spring Ridge is because you promised Robert Scorpio that you would give him intel on Ryan Chamberlain’s connection to Esme, right?

Heather: Absolutely.

Dante: Right. Okay, good. So what do you got?

Heather: Oh, I got something, alright.

Dante: Yeah?

Heather: Ryan asks about Esme every single day.

Dante: That’s it?

Heather: Well —

Dante: Oh, come on. This free ride’s gotta end. We gotta get you outta here.

Heather: No, no, no, no. Don’t be so hasty. There’s a definite advantage to me being here still, especially now that Esme’s here.

Dante: Mm-hmm.

Heather: I can make sure that Esme and Ryan bump into each other.

Dante: Hm.

Heather: When they do, I’ll be the translator, all the while acting like I couldn’t care less about the content of their conversation. Ryan is bound to tell her something, right? And I thought you cops wanted a little information on whether or not Esme had a partner in crime. [ Chuckles ]

Sam: Does the name Maggie Fitzgerald mean anything to you?

Esme: Why? Who is she?

Sam: Maggie was your nanny. She basically raised you after your adoptive parents died.

Esme: That’s an interesting bit of trivia, but I don’t think I’ve needed a nanny for a while now.

Sam: Well, I have reason to believe that you stayed in touch through letters.

Esme: Can I see them?

Sam: Unfortunately, I don’t have them right now. Actually, I don’t know where they are. I think you may have took them with you when you left Wyndemere.

Esme: Maybe. I mean, I could have done literally anything.

Sam: Do you remember riding on a boat?

Esme: Not really. I… [ Sighs ] Sorry.

Sam: No.  Don’t — don’t worry. It’s okay. Just — just take your time.

Esme: I’m starting to think it might be better if I never remember who I am. I mean, do I really want to remember a life where the only person who cared about me was paid to do it?

Sam: Maggie mentioned in one of her letters that your biological father could be somewhere here in New York State.

Esme: I mean, if that’s the case, why hasn’t he tried to contact me?

Sam: I don’t know. Maybe he doesn’t know y-you’re in trouble. Do you want me to try and find him?

Sonny: Is this an emergency or what?

Dexter: No, but it is important.

Spencer: My uncle and I are having a family discussion. So, errand boy, go polish a fender! Pick up somebody’s dry cleaning! Okay?!

Sonny: Spencer. I got it. Wait outside.

Spencer: I really don’t like that guy!

Sonny: Yeah, you don’t — you don’t have to worry about — about him. Trust me. I just want you to know that I’m proud that you want to protect your brother or your sister. You know? There’s a lot of your mother in you.

Spencer: Really?

Sonny: Yeah. She’d have been very proud of you.

Spencer: But do you think that fighting for this baby is a mistake?

Sonny: Well, that’s just my opinion. It doesn’t matter what I think. I just want you to know — if you take this on, it’s gonna be a fight with your father.

Nikolas: Esme thinks Spencer might be the father of her baby? How?

Laura: I don’t know. [ Sighs ] She talked to Spencer. Probably Spencer told her who they used to be to each other.

Nikolas: No, this seems more like an Esme trick. I mean, god, even without her memory, she’s still a schemer.

Laura: Maybe. My gut instinct is that she really can’t remember who she used to be.

Nikolas: Let’s hope it stays that way.

Laura: Why? I mean, if she remembers, I think it will make your case against her stronger. Why wouldn’t you —

[ Cellphone rings ]

Laura: I’m sorry about this. Um, I — I’m gonna answer this. I’ll just be a minute.

Nikolas: By all means.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Laura: Hello? I’m on my way.

Cameron: If you thought I couldn’t look at you before at Kelly’s, that is nothing compared to how I feel right now.

Josslyn: I’m sorry. But I’ve got to ask you. You cannot tell anybody about me and Dex

Spencer: I need some fresh air. I’m gonna go for a walk. And, uh, promise to think about what you said.

Sonny: I know you will.

Spencer: Alright.

Sonny: And if you need me, you know I’m here to talk, right? No matter what time or whenever…

Spencer: I know.

Sonny: You know. Do what you gotta do, okay?

Spencer: Thanks again.

Sonny: Yeah.

Spencer: You’re up.

Sonny: Dex.

Dex: I’m sorry for interrupting before.

Sonny: That’s okay.  I just want you to know it’s always family first.

Dex: I do.

Sonny: So what do you got to tell me?

Austin: Good luck with Dr. Partha and with everything else.  I hope things go your way.

Ava: Thanks. Good luck to you, too.

Austin: Thank you.

Dante: You got one week. One week to get something solid that leads to something out of Ryan. Or, I’m sorry, it’s back to D’Archam.

Heather: Know that it won’t be that easy, but Ryan and I do have a very special connection.

Esme: It’s a very kind offer, but from what I understand, I have no money to hire you to help me find my father or this… nanny.

Sam: It would be no charge.

Esme: What’s in it for you?

Sam: Well, the truth would affect a lot of people I know. And if it doesn’t pan out, then neither of us is any worse off.  But if it does, then we both get answers. Come on, what do you say?

Esme: I say let’s do it.  Thank you.

Sam: Excellent. I’ll get right on it.

Esme: Um, I really hope you can find this nanny, but I know that it might not be the happiest story, but I need to know everything you can find out about who my father is.

Heather: What’s this about a nanny?

Esme: Oh, turns out my old nanny Maggie, um…

Sam: Fitzgerald.

Esme: Fizgerald. Um…Turns out she might know where my father is.

Laura: So, tell me, what’s going on?

Elizabeth: My mother’s in town.

Laura: Carolyn?

Elizabeth: Hm.

Laura: Why? Do you think she wants to make amends?

Elizabeth:  Well, apparently that’s just a bonus. She’s here to consult on a patient.

Laura: And you don’t believe her.

Elizabeth:  Well, I don’t know. After everything she and my dad have done, can I really risk trusting her?

Nikolas: Thank you so much for coming.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Anna (to Valentin): There’s not enough time before it’s too late.

Elizabeth: Can I really risk trusting her?

Nikolas (to Carolyn): You’ll do exactly as I say.

Laura: I’m starting to feel that way about Nikolas.

Maxie (to Sam): When were you going to tell me about this?

Josslyn (to Cameron): I’m afraid of what Sonny could do if he finds out.

Sonny (to Dex): That still doesn’t let you off the hook.
