THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
yeah, I need you to find out everything you can about gordon stevens. Uh, he did a little time in pentonville. He, uh, took two bullets outside of G.H., And I want to find out who’s responsible.
[ Indistinct conversations ] Is this seat taken? Oh, well… it is now.
[ Chuckles ] I’m glad you got out of the house, ’cause I was worried about you. The last time I saw you, you were…a bit off. Yeah, I was. I got tired of hiding out at home, though. Tired of eating cereal for dinner. You know, I’m not very good in the kitchen, and with valentin gone, it’s highly possible that I could starve. I’m surprised valentin hasn’t come back from his trip. Especially with what’s going on with you. I’m fine on my own. I don’t need him to protect me. You may not need him, but does he know the wsb is trying to kill you?
[ Indistinct conversations ]
[ Elevator doors open ] Hold the elevator! You’re welcome. How’s the patient?
[ Sighs ] Mom, you’re making way too much out of this. Okay? I missed a step and fell down the courthouse stairs.
[ Smooches ] It was klutzy, and I’m — I’m more embarrassed than I am hurt. That boot says otherwise. I’m your mommy, and I want to take care of you. So let me, for no other reason than to make me feel better. I just wish I could go back to work. You need to take a minute. Do you need anything? I’m good. Sam came by and made sure the fridge was full, and krissy even offered to shop for me. Good. I figured the girls would get you groceries. Oh, kristina didn’t actually bring any food. She came with something much better. What? Remember this little guy? Aww. Why am
I lucky enoughto get a visit from my sister? Don’t try to flatter me. Answer the question.
[ Sighs ] Okay. You want to know why I’m so hard on nina? That’s not what I said. I asked why you’re being such a bastard to her. Okay, well, let me ask you a question. Uh, why are you always so damn nice to nina? Look, michael, I know that our family was hurt by what happened between dad and nina, but they’re engaged. She’s a part of our family now, so you got to get over it.
[ Sighs ] “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give unto you. Not as the world giveth give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Lord, make me a channel of thy peace.
[ Grunts ] No one around to help you, old man. No warden. No guards. You’re all alone.
[ Quietly ] Not even god can help you now. Drew: But I can. Get the hell away from him.
I imagine things are hectic at deception. Oh, that’s an understatement. I-I feel like I’m just swamped. You know, we’re all scrambling to do massive damage control. Yeah, I-I feel so terrible for poor sasha and cody. I’m just glad he’s going to be okay. It could have been a lot worse. Yeah, you’re right. It could have been a lot — a lot worse. We just don’t know what happened. It — it was so sudden. I mean, really, sasha’s life was on track. She was doing fine. She was happy. And I think she was thrilled to be doing the interview, and then… she just lost it. I mean, really. Boom. And sasha’s meltdown — it could have tanked deception completely. It could have sent our stock tumbling. But thankfully, we have the deceptor. The sales are incredible, and I think it’s gonna save the company. Yeah, at least that’s good news. Yeah. [ Sighs ] It should be. But it’s not? It’s just, I-I can’t help it. I-I discuss — I bring up the deceptor and all I think about is martin. He’s the one that was the inspiration for me to create it. And the problem with that would be? I just can’t stop thinking about he is getting $50,000 every month in alimony from ex-wife number three. And why didn’t he tell me that? Why keep that a secret? And what else could he be hiding from me? “You’re welcome” for what, exactly? I held the elevator door open for you. The polite response would be “thank you.” Oh, I’m so sorry, emily post. I didn’t realize that you expect to be thanked for a basic courtesy.
[ Cellphone rings ] Oh, so you are familiar with the concept of “basic courtesy”? You hide it well. Yeah, monica. I’m on my way up to the restaurant. Although I wish I’d taken the stairs. You’re canceling? Monica, could you have given me a little warning?
[ Scoffs ] It is always a medical emergency with you. No, monica, I was not aware that you were a doctor. I’ll see you at home.
[ Sighs ] Ladies first. Thank you. I do not want to worry valentin…at all. He has his hands full with laura and kevin and whatever he’s doing. Besides, I don’t believe for one second that the bureau has a hit out on me. You sure about that? ‘Cause we both know they traced the gun back to wsb. Easy explanation is that it was stolen from the bureau and sold on the black market. And the shooter? I don’t know, sonny. A rogue agent. At worst, maybe someone whose family was hurt because of my actions. It was long time ago, but maybe they want payback. Are you still planning to use yourself as bait… to draw them out? Valiant. Where on earth did kristina find him? Where was he hiding? Oh, krissy was going through things in your attic, looking for stuff to sell at the fundraiser, and she opened a box and guess who was sitting there? You used to brush his tail and braid it every night, and then you’d sleep with it, like, right here in the crook of your neck so you’d both fall asleep. And I had to put out carrots in case he got hungry in the middle of the night. Oh, my gosh. I forgot about the carrots. Valiant was a very special pony, and valiant was the only one that could sleep on the bed while the other stuffed animals were relegated to the floor because you believed that valiant was special and needed a place of prominence. Did I really use that word? Of course you did. You had a very, very big vocabulary at 6. You still do. Oh, my god, this pony went with you into every moment — important moment of your life when you were little. You know, you didn’t know this, but I actually overheard you have a conversation with valiant while you were getting ready for junior prom.
[ Chuckles ] And you actually took valiant with you to do your sats. I didn’t know you could do that, but you did. I got to tell you… you know, it was a second ago when you were a little girl and had a stuffed pony, and now you’re my big girl. You’re practicing law. I may be all grown up, but…I still need my mom. Look, kristina, I don’t want to get into this with you. Look, nina has caused enough stress in my life. The last thing I want to do is fight about her with you. Good. I’m not looking for a fight. I am just offering you a simple solution. So what, now you’re giving me advice? Yeah, I am. Y-you can be mr. Big shot business guy here, but we all know I have a sixth sense when it comes to people. Mm. And what is your sixth sense telling you? Uh, that you should drop this grudge and just give nina a chance. A chance… that’s just it, kristina — I’ve given nina chance after chance, and she keeps crossing the line. You shouldn’t even be drawing a line, michael. Make peace. If not for your sake, do it for willow. So I should just do what you’re telling me, and everybody will be happy? Yeah, basically.
[ Chuckles ] Okay. Look, kristina, this isn’t about me. This is about willow. And when it comes to nina, whatever willow decides, I’ll support. Wow. Okay. You — you have got serious skills. H-how did you do that? You’ve got to teach me that. Teach you what? This has nothing to do with you. So why don’t you just walk away and pretend you didn’t see anything? I can’t do that. You get involved, you’re going to pay the price. Is this codger really worth it to you?
[ Gasps ] You’re making a mistake. No. You’re the one who made a mistake. You think you have power here?
[ Inhales deeply ] That everyone’s still in your pocket? I… you don’t have any more allies. Those days are gone, renault. I said to leave him alone. I’m gonna give you one more chance to get the hell out of here and forget you saw this. Look, I really don’t want any trouble here, okay? I really don’T.
[ Breathing heavily ] You’re getting weak, old man. We all see it.
[ Grunts ]
[ Groans ] Oh, god.
What, uh, “skill” do you want me to teach you, and, more importantly, why? You never actually committed to giving nina a second chance, and you didn’t even say you would try to get along with her. What you did say was you would leave it up to willow. Right. I still don’t follow. This is a classic move out of the michael corinthos playbook. Keep everything close to the vest. Don’t give anything away. Always keep your options open. It’s very admirable, honestly. Meanwhile, I am over here like an open book, leaping before I look. Impulsive. Doesn’t always bode well for me, professionally or personally, to be honest, right? Okay. Well, you know what, kristina? You’re giving me a little too much credit. Yes, I am, uh, very analytical. I, uh — I think about everything. But you — I mean, you’re, uh — you’re open, you’re honest, you’re a — you’re a free spirit.
[ Chuckles ] Y-you go where your heart tells you to go. Uh-huh. And that’s not always a bad thing. And plus, you know what? You — you genuinely want to help people. And I-I admire you for that. Thanks, bro. I’m glad you see them as good qualities, because, honestly, it doesn’T… it doesn’t always get the job done. I’ve got a few ideas. Uh, it’s gonna take a little bit more… investigating before I put a plan in motion, I think. Well, let me know if you need help, ’cause I don’t — I don’t like that you’re alone in that house. We don’t even know where the threat is coming from. I really appreciate you looking out for me, but could you just… call your watchdog off? I see him parked outside my house, and I don’t need that kind of protection. I just don’t want it. I get it. I get it. You want me to stay out of it. You know, you have enough on your plate. Certainly don’t need to add me to your long list of problems. Yeah, I got a — I got a lot going on, but I always have time for you. Hearing you talk about memories from when I was little, you know, it’s bittersweet. And it’s something I may never get to experience. Will I ever be able to, you know, make memories like that with a child of my own someday? It’s just — it’s, you know — it’s something I really want. And tj feels the same way? Yeah, he does. So have you, um, talked about options? Yeah, we have. You know, when we committed to each other, we always thought kids were something in the future. You know, we wanted to establish our careers first, but deep down, I always knew I wanted to be a mom. And we were both so, you know, disappointed when we found out I wasn’t pregnant. For a few short hours, you know, before I took the home pregnancy test, we were just excited, you know, about the thought of… of becoming parents. And then we got hit with the endometriosis news, and I just — I-I couldn’t accept that I wouldn’t have a baby. And that just leaves us with a lot to think about. Well, I-I’m certain that you and tj will make the right decision, because it’s — it’s certainly your decision to make. We already have. We definitely want a baby. But how — how do we make that happen? Table for two? No.Yes. Come on. Live a little. Your dinner date canceled. It wasn’t a “date.” It was my former sister-in-law. Just join me for dinner, please. Well, since you said “please.” Table for two. Right this way. I’ll send your waitress right over. Thank you. Thank you, kind sir. You’re very welcome. See? We’re making progress. I have to ask, is this gonna be a running theme? You do your best cary grant, holding elevators, pulling out chairs, and I’m expected to say thank you every time? What’s next — throwing your jacket over a puddle? Would that be so bad? Torture.
[ Chuckles ]
[ Gasping ] Does this guy have allies, or is he working on his own? Allies. Okay. How many?
[ Stammers ] A-a bunch of them. They know to distract the guards and keep them away. Okay, alright. Well, we got to get you out of here.
[ Grunts ] Can you walk? Uh… alright, we gotta get you to the infirmary, okay? Alright, alright. Come on. Give me your arm. Give me your arm. Come on. Here we go. Here we go.
[ Grunting ] Oh, god. Let’s go. Let’s go.
[ Grunts ]
But now we know that can’t happen since… my eggs aren’t viable. So the next option would be using someone else’s eggs, and that — that could be from a donor, or the surrogate. You have a lot to process. I know. I just can’t help but think that… using kristina — it — it might be the best solution. So what, uh, job needs to get done? This is about the, uh — the foundation that you’re starting? The shelter. Yeah. I am setting up a shelter for lgbtqia+ teens that are at risk. Dad found the site, and he set up all the funding. Oh. That’s — that’s good, right? Yeah, it’s amazing. It’s great. It’s just that I have to get everything off the ground. I’m talking to contractors and architects and securing building permits, and I have to learn all these new tax codes for nonprofits. It’s — it’s a lot. And I’m — I’m just realizing how in over my head I am.
[ Inhales deeply ] How can I help? I thought you’d never ask. I hate what that bastard, victor, did to you. Exposing your past was cruel. Cassadines can be a cruel bunch sometimes. But — but there is a collateral benefit. There is? Well, w-we’re not on opposite sides. Uh, we don’t have to pretend we’re not friends. I never pretended.
[ Laughs ]
[ Laughs ] Oh. So all the time that y-you were, you know, judging me and digging me about my criminal activity, you meant it? Yeah. Absolutely. Wow. All of it. Okay. But I think, really, I mean, if I’m being honest, I do have to admit that even when I was doing my duty to uphold the law and bring you to justice, there was a part of me that really admired how you were able to… get away with it?
[ Laughing ] Okay. Let’s not jump to conclusions. We don’t know for sure that those payments were alimony. Oh, come on. You don’t have to be a lawyer to figure it out. Your honor, exhibit a — mr. Grey is receiving $50,000 every single month…
[Exhales deeply] From a company in pine valley called maquillage. That said company is owned by his horrible, greedy ex-wife number three. What?
[ Exhales deeply ] It just occurred to me. We only have marty’s word that his ex-wife number three is so horrible and greedy. She’s the one that is shelling out all that alimony. What if it’s marty? What if he’s the one that is so greedy? I-I don’t think — oh, wait a minute. That’s the reason that he couldn’t possibly marry me. Because he would lose all that money.
[ Gasps, scoffs ] What are you looking for? I’m just looking for any gummy, even if it’s stale. I-I-I thought you said that that wasn’t working for you. Well, looky here. Two of my favorite ladies. Must be my lucky night. May I join you?
[ Book grunts ] Ah!
[ Grunts ] Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Break it up. Solitary for both of you.
[ Weakly ] No.
[ Gasping ] No.
There was always a part of me that admired your ability to compartmentalize. You know, on the one hand, you’re a loving father, going to dance recitals, soccer matches, whatever. On the other, you’re ruthlessly running this criminal enterprise. Tony soprano had a soft side. Yeah, he did. You know what I mean, though. It’s an interesting dichotomy, don’t you think? A doting father, and then commitment to running your business. Hmm. It’s a good thing, right?
[ Both laugh ] Yeah, it’s a good thing. But, you know, as an agent, you know, I-I-I — I didn’t have the luxury of — of admiring the person that I was trying to take down. Right? Because then that’s your own personal feelings affecting your work. You can’t let that happen because it just compromises the whole situation. And if I’m to be honest, that’s kind of exactly what happened early on in my career. And I was determined that that wasn’t going to happen with you. But now, my reputation is kind of tarnished. I can say with 100% certainty I never turned a blind eye to you or your organization. That’s for damn sure, ’cause when you were police commissioner, you — you were all over me, and I’m sure you were like that with any agent you were up against. Yes, I was. What? Did I hurt your feelings? I’m sorry. No, no, no, no. What if it wasn’t victor? Ok ay, so all foundationshave a board of directors. I want you to join. Oh. Okay. Who — who else is on the board? Uh, no one yet. But that’s only because you are my first and only choice.
[ Chuckles ] Look, I-I know how busy you are here, and not just here. You’ve got a lot going on everywhere. But I know right now at work you’re also covering for drew while he’S…away, and at home you have everything going on with willow and the kids. And look, the last thing that I want to do is add to that. But you are the smartest person I know. Please? What do you say? So, my friend was in a bind and he asked me to watch his dog, and he said that astro wouldn’t be a problem. He just didn’t like to be left alone. Which, of course, meant I had to take him to class with me. So I’m in the middle of this passionate lecture about freedom of the press, when I hear tittering in the class, and I’m a little offended. So I stopped and I said, “anybody have any questions?” This one student raises his hand. He goes, “yes, um, professor, did you forget to walk your dog this morning?” At which point I realized
[Laughs] That astro’s relieving himself in the middle of the classroom floor.
[ Laughs ] The moral of the story is never, ever bring a pet to class. They will upstage you every time. That was surprisingly charming. Thank you. I think. I probably sound like a hypocrite after my reaction when kristina first brought up the idea. Absolutely not. Your reaction was completely appropriate. Her timing, however, was not. I mean, there’s a lot to weigh w-with kristina’s offer. I went ballistic when I overheard her talking about being the egg donor and surrogate. But the more I think about it, I-it could be a good option. I mean, krissy and I, we share dna, so the baby would — would technically… be a part of me. And it’s not like we’re using some stranger who could have a questionable lifestyle. I mean, we know kristina’s medical history. We know her — her — her social habits. I mean, that’s a good thing, right? You sound like you’re trying to talk yourself into it. Is that what you think I’m doing? Are you? I’m — I’m pointing out that kristina seems to check all the boxes. Which means she could be the perfect choice to carry our baby. What do you think? Hey, you. Um, well, uh, funny — I was just singing your praises, um, here. I was telling felicia that the sales for the deceptor are just skyrocketing, thank goodness, and I owe it all to you because you were the inspiration for it all. Now, now, my gorgeous little buttercup. We all know that the deceptor is 100% your baby. There’s no reason to bring me into it.
[ Chuckles ] So w-why don’t you, uh, tell me how your trip went? Oh, it was a fun getaway.
[ Laughs ] Mm-hmm. [ Giggles ] Where’d you go? Oh, we went to the spa. Spa in llanview. Um, llanview, pennsylvania. Who knew? It is just beautiful this time of year. Oh, yeah. Yeah, I-I had to meet a potential investor, but I didn’t want to go alone, so she agreed to keep me company. We made it a real girls trip. You know, we had wine and facials and [Stammers] Spa treatments, and… uh, I think it’s getting late. I need to run. I need to, uh, check in with mac and relieve him of his babysitting duties. Um…a grandmother’s work is never done. [ Chuckles ] Goodbye.
[ Chuckles ] Is she okay? Book: Are you gonna fall for that?! The geezer’s faking so you take it easy on his friend here! I-I think he’s having a heart attack. Honestly, please, just get him a doctor. Both of you, shut up. Get ’em out of here.
[ Grunts ] He’s gonna die if you don’t do anything! Look, look, look, look, listen, just — I was in the military. I know what to do. Please, just let me help him. Please. Fine, fine. Let him go. Alright, don’t give up. Alright? Alright, let me see. Alright. You’re gonna be alright.
Oh, we’ll take separate checks, please. No, no, no. I’m — I’m picking up the tab. No, I can pay for myself. I’m not questioning your finances, but I insisted you join me, so it’s my treat. Well, you definitely were more entertaining than my sister-in-law. Well, it’s not exactly a stellar review, but I’ll take it. Next time, you can grab the check. Next time? Who said there’s gonna be a “next time”? Okay. Alright, cyrus. Just try to relax, okay? It’s — it’s alright. Just try to take deep breaths. It’s really important. Take deep breaths in through your nose, out through your mouth. We got to call the infirmary again, guys. Come on, now. Go. See what’s taking so long.
[ Gasping ] Alright, just hang in there. Hang in there, cyrus. You got this. Hang in there. I know you want me to factor in to this. But this is really such a personal decision for you, and I don’t want to influence you. Can you at least help me weigh the options? Just — just try and step back and… talk to me as a former lawyer, and not my mother. Alright, on the positive side, kristina is in good health, and she’s at a good age. But there are so many other things to consider. And, darlin’, I know you want this to be the perfect solution because she’s your sister and you love her and because the baby would share your dna, but on the minus side, most surrogates don’t have a relationship with the baby after it’s born. And kristina would have a relationship with the baby
forever. But I already know that kristina’s — she’s an amazing aunt to sam’s kids, and she would be the same for my child. Molly. But that’s just it. She wouldn’t really be the baby’s aunt. She would be the baby’s biological mother, and that just buys you a whole lot of really complex issues that could come down the line. And I just want you to think about it, and I want you to be prepared. Are you saying that… kristina wouldn’t accept the role of aunt and that she would — she would want to be more? I don’t know that.
You don’t know that.
She doesn’t know that. She’s never been pregnant before. And — and nobody knows if she’d be able to detach or not. Mom, you’re — you’re freaking me out a bit. I’m not trying to freak you out. I’m — I’m just trying to make you think. This is a huge commitment for kristina. I realize that. But I’m not sure kristina does. I would be honored to have a seat on the board.
[ Gasps, squeals ] Really? Oh, my god. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I knew I could count on you. You’re gonna make this youth center a huge success. I hope so. I wish I had that confidence. I just…I feel like with me running things, it’s only gonna last for, like, I don’t know, six months, maybe. Kristina. You have to believe in yourself, okay? It’s so funny you say that. Molly was literally just saying that to me the other day. I-I just — I think my — my big fear is that I’m gonna make a huge mess out of everything again, and then dad’s gonna have to clean up after me, and then mom is gonna be totally disappointed with me again. And ultimately, I’m gonna prove everyone right that I can’t do anything and follow through with something. Kristina, stop being so hard on yourself. It’s just dad really gave me a great head start with this foundation, you know? And I just know that if I don’t succeed, I’m gonna let him down. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but, uh… you underestimate dad. All this information about you being a double-agent get leaked out to the press. I mean, the wsb, I’m sure they sealed the records. Yeah. Why expose you now? Well, the timing isn’t a coincidence. Hmm. You know? Even in death, victor is the gift that keeps on giving. Right? I-it all just came out, um… when his will was being read. You know, the lawyer, he — he played this taped message from victor saying that he was leaving me with the “truth”. I wasn’t sure what that meant. And then less than an hour later, I-I was here, remember? And I was arrested by agent hursley. Then the whole media blitz started, and my face was plastered across the newspaper. “Anna devane — double-agent.” So, cassadine exposing your past was all about payback? His final act of revenge? I think so. What else could it be?
Despite my feelings about dad, I can be objective. Like, he’s always been a savvy businessman. He wouldn’t invest time and money into you if he thought you would fail. Look, if you need his guidance, just reach out to him. He’ll surround you with professionals who know how to get the job done. See, that’s what I thought, too. But once we got the funding set up, he just completely backed off. Yeah, it’s probably ’cause he doesn’t want to overstep or make it seem like he’s keeping tabs on you. But look, dad is your biggest fan, and he has all the tools you need to succeed, okay? So all you got to do is just reach out to him. It is annoying how right you are sometimes. You know, you got to admit it, though. You still love dad.
[ Scoffs ] You do. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have this much faith in him. Alright, why don’t you get out of here, okay? Ah, you’re kicking me out? Your new board member needs to get to work. Okay, fair. Hey, michael. Yeah? Thank you.
[ Door closes ] Clearly, someone else in the wsb could have reason to leak those confidential files. You were a damn good agent. I’m sure you were a threat to somebody and that’s the only way they felt they could shut you out.
[ Chuckles ] Could be. My ego would really like to believe that that was true. But I don’t have any way of knowing. I-I don’t even know if the bullet was meant for me at the pool. It could just have easily been meant for you. Yeah, I considered that. I’ve been working with a high-powered security firm lately. You know, you ever heard of pikeman? Yes, I have heard of pikeman. Trust me, you do not want anything to do with them. I’m guessing you don’t miss lecturing since you seem to do so much of it outside the classroom.
[ Chuckles ] Are you okay? Yeah. Fine. I’m fine. Just, uh, too many years writing
[Laughs] On a blackboard. Uh, teachers don’t have to worry about that anymore. Everything’s electronic. I’m sorry I have to run, but I totally forgot I promised alexis that I would look over an article before it goes to press. Good night. Good night. Thanks, mom. You’ve given me a lot to think about. I wasn’t looking at this from kristina’s point of view, and that’s something tj and i definitely need to consider. I know this is hard, honey, and I’m very sorry, but I know you’re really brave and you can handle it. And like I said, sometimes the most difficult things in life can be the most — oh. Most rewarding. Look at you.
[ Chuckles ] Smart, smart girl who I love. You’re my favorite. Oh, yeah. You tell us all that. Yeah, I do.
[ Chuckles ] Listen to me. The good news is you’re not doing this alone, right? I did it alone twice. And it’s hard. But you have tj. And that little guy. Thanks, mom. You’re the best. I don’t know what I’d do without you. Well, hopefully you won’t have to find out for a very, very long time.
[ Door opens ] See ya, valiant.
[ Cellphone rings ] What can I do for you, tracy? I just had dinner with a friend of yours. Gregory chase. What were you having dinner with gregory for? It’s not important. I-I want to know if… I want to know if there’s something wrong with him. In what way? His health. Tell me. I’m — I’m so curious. Have you — have you checked in with, um, your mother today? Oh, yeah. I do every day. You know that. If I don’t call, mama calls the neighbors.
[ Chuckles ] So, how is your mother today? Oh, she’s as vivacious as ever. Thank you for asking. As a matter of fact, she was trying on a new lipstick when we spoke. Apparently it’s bingo night and she’s vying for the affections of one mr. Brewster, the most eligible bachelor there. Wow. Well, clearly she seems to be enjoying herself at the retirement home. I mean, it’s good, right? I mean, they take good care of her. And I hear those places are very, very expensive. You know, that — that makes — makes me think you have such a huge financial burden. I mean, your mom, and then paying all that alimony to your ex-wives, three of them. [ Chuckles ]
[ Chuckles ] They are a rather unique set of rapacious creatures, to be sure. Especially number three. Yeah, she’s a-a real piece of work. Vulture, you know? Picks at your bones till there’s nothing left. Mm, mm, mm. She just sounds awful. Oh, she is. But I manage. Somehow, for mama. After all, I have to. It’s not like cyrus can provide for her. Where the hell’s that doctor? We need him here now! Okay, cyrus. Come on. Stay with me, cyrus. Stay with me. Hang on. You’re gonna make it, okay? Help is on the way. Just stay with me.
[ Echoing ] Come on. Deep breaths. Come on, now. Come on. Stay with me.
On the next “General Hospital” —
