THIS STILL NEEDS A LITTLE EDITING!
Lucy: No, no. No, no, no. Just listen to me, okay? I need you to get over to the courthouse pronto. I don’t care what you’re doing. Just drop everything. You don’t understand. My life is at stake.
Okay, Lucy has the best representation for us, so it’s all gonna be okay. Besides, today is just a preliminary hearing to see if this case is even gonna move forward.
You seem pretty optimistic.
I am. I am. This is a good opportunity to smoke out the mastermind who’s behind this and shut them down for good.
Portia: I can’t tell you how much it means to me — finally having you home.
Curtis: Yeah, well, I know it’s not gonna be easy on any of us, but, um…I know we’ll figure it out.
And we’re all here for you.
[ Sighs ] I know. Okay. Let’s do it. Okay.
[ Exhales sharply ]
Welcome home, dad!
Carly: Here you go. Here is your breakfast. Enjoy. [ Laughs ]
Michael: You got a real flair for this.
Carly: I do. And you know what? It runs in the family. Great-Aunt Ruby. She ran this place for decades.
Michael: I love that you and Bobbie kept it in our family.
Carly: Me too. It’s so good to see you!
Carly: Thank you so much for coming by.
Michael: Yeah, of course. So, why’d you want to see me?
Carly: Well, I may have come up with a way to get Drew out of Pentonville.
Cyrus: Can I interest you in a little soul cleansing? This book will help lead you to the Lord, and all your prayers will be answered, if only you ask.
Drew: Yeah, well, thank you, but I’m looking for a book on rivers in upstate New York, so I can do a little kayaking.
Cyrus: Doesn’t that make you long for a world you can’t be part of?
Drew: Gives me something to look forward to when I get out of here.
Cyrus: In the meantime, how fortunate for you that you’re under Sonny’s protection.
Sonny: Brick. How was your flight?
Brick: Long. Too long. It’s good to see you, though.
Sonny: Want some coffee?
Brick: Sure. Anything strong.
Sonny: It’s all I got.
Brick: So I’ll take it.
Sonny: Do you have an update?
Brick: Oh, I do. That spy that was planted in your home?
Brick: It’s not gonna be a problem for you any longer.
[ Door opens ]
Janice: Sasha? How are you feeling today?
Sasha: [ Shivering ] So cold. My head is throbbing. Everything hurts. Please. Do something.
Janice: Um…oh. Here’s another blanket. You really need to stay hydrated. You think you can drink some water?
Sasha: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I think so.
Janice: Okay. Here you go.
Sasha: [ Gasps ]
Janice: I’ll be back to check in on you and give you something for that headache.
Nina: No, I don’t want to drop the two-page Deception ad. Why? Because it’s my magazine and I say it stays! Oh. Can you hold for a second? Thanks.
[ Beep ]
Nina: Listen. I asked you to hold all my calls until I was finished. Yeah. Just send her in. Thanks.
[ Beep ]
Nina: Listen. I’m gonna have to call you right back. Okay.
[ Door opens ]
Gladys: I understand that congratulations are in order? I am so happy for you and Sonny. And, you know, this practically makes us family now. Let me — let me see that rock.
Nina: Uh, Gladys, uh, if you have something that you need to talk to me about, I am so sorry, but I’m extremely busy right now, so if you see my assistant, she’ll set something up.
[ Suspenseful music plays ]
Gladys: We have to talk now. It’s a matter of life and death.
Trina: You look great, Dad. And handsome, as always. Isn’t he, Mom?
And you look really fit! You must be really excited to be home.
Oh. Come in. Come in. Look.
[ Doors close ]
Curtis: Moved some things around.
We opened some things up a bit for you.
Trina: Mom, we should have gotten rid of that coffee table a long time ago. I love the open space.
Oh, and wait till you see what we did to your room. You’re gonna love it. Go check it out.
Lucy: Hey, Team Deception. Are we ready and able to kick this ridiculous lawsuit out on its keister? Because if we don’t have the Deceptor to sell, then our company… is gone.
Where’s our lawyer?
Lucy: Oh. Uh… I let her go.
You did what?! Why would you do that?
Lucy: Uh, well, because, obviously, if we lose this lawsuit, we’re not gonna have the money to pay her. We can’t afford her.
Lucy, we — we need representation!
Lucy: I know. I know. Don’t worry. I got somebody new. I got the best.
Well, you just fired the best, so who did you get?
Lucy: Uh, Martin. He, uh — he agreed to do it pro bono.
Oh. Okay. Great. Great. Where is he?
Lucy: At the last minute, he flew the coop.
What does that mean?
Lucy: I don’t know what it means. He had to do something with Valentin. Look. Don’t worry, though. I-I-I-I have a plan. We just have to stay focused and have hope and… come on. Come on, team. Let’s stay positive.
This is really bad. Okay? How are we supposed to halt the case if we don’t have representation?!
Carly: So, I have Diane checking to see if she can argue that the judge in Drew’s case was biased.
Michael: B-biased in what way?
Carly: Well, that Judge Kim had a reason for going against Drew’s plea deal, or that he has a pattern of being hard on white-collar crimes.
Michael: I don’t care. I’ll take whatever Diane can find at this point.
And if she can find anything?
Carly: Well, she’s gonna have another judge review the whole case, and hopefully he can reduce the sentence or commute the whole damn thing.
Michael: [ Sighs ] Well, if anyone can do it, it’s Diane.
Carly: Yeah. I hope it works out for Drew’s sake. I hope so because she is our only chance.
Michael: Look, Mom. Hey. No matter what happens… Drew is strong. He can handle himself. He’ll be okay.
Carly: I-I know he’s strong mentally. I’m just really worried about him physically. I mean, he was already put in solitary confinement because he got in a fight. What if somebody else comes after him?
Michael: That won’t happen. Drew is under Sonny’s protection.
Drew: Stay out of my business, Cyrus.
Cyrus: I am deeply sorry. Have I spoken amiss?
Drew: Look. Just — skip all this, all the — all the flowery gestures, and just tell me whatever it is you obviously want me to know.
Cyrus: I really do appreciate your bluntness. Book was reminded in no uncertain terms that you are not to be touched. It was made crystal clear to him that you are under the protection and the watchful eye of Sonny Corinthos.
Cyrus: Good for you.
Brick: Betty Rutherford is no longer in Port Charles. She flew to Mexico.
Sonny: I just assumed Betty’s job of s-spying on me a-and getting information on the Pikeman deal was finished.
Brick: I think the flash drive I falsified did the trick.
Sonny: Let’s just hope Austin and Mason, or whoever they’re working for, paid her off and said, “Hey. Just stay as far away from Port Charles as you can.”
Brick: Should I arrange to have her brought back?
Sonny: No, they’re hoping that she’s out of my reach, but little do they know she’s not, ’cause I got people in Mexico. If I need to ask her questions, I can find her.
Nina: Gladys, take a — take a deep breath. So what is this life-and-death matter?
Gladys: As you know, our poor Sasha is still being treated in Ferncliff.
Nina: Yes, I know that.
Gladys: And you two are pretty close. I-I know how much you care about Sasha, and I-I know how close Sasha and willow are. They’re best friends.
Nina: Yes, they are. Sasha and willow have been through a lot together.
Gladys: A-a-and you have been such a supportive and generous friend to Sasha.
Nina: Well, I love Sasha. However rocky our relationship started out, I’ve come to know her as a very loving and wonderful young woman.
Gladys: I’m so glad to hear you say that. That’s — that’s why I’m coming to you.
Nina: For what?
Gladys: I need $50,000 today to cover Sasha’s medical expenses.
Dr. Montague: Hello, Sasha. I’m going to give you something to help take all your pain away.
Sasha: No. No, please. Don’t. I don’t want it! I don’t want it! No! Please don’t! [ Breathing rapidly ]
Nina: 50 grand?! Gladys, that’s a very large medical bill, and it’s very unusual that it’s due so quickly.
Gladys: Oh, I know. It’s very upsetting. I mean, you’d think an institution like Ferncliff could wait until she’s better and on her feet before they demanded money.
Nina: Well, Sasha has money. You’re her guardian. So I’m sure that you can use it at your discretion to pay her medical expenses.
Gladys: Under normal circumstances, I could.
Nina: What changed?
Gladys: Well, unfortunately, with the Deception lawsuit, I can’t sell Sasha’s stock.
Nina: Right. The lawsuit. Well, that makes sense that her money would not be accessible right now. I would do anything to help Sasha, but I’m just a little curious. Why didn’t you ask Sonny first? He’s your cousin. He’d be happy to help.
Gladys: Well… [ Chuckles ] As you probably know, Sonny and I don’t have the greatest relationship. And — and money is an uncomfortable subject for us.
Nina: But this money is for Sasha. Right, Gladys? Just tell Sonny what’s going on.
Gladys: Oh, I just figured I’d start with you because, as we said, you’re close to Sasha, and willow is close to Sasha.
Nina: It’s obvious you’re not telling me everything, so, Gladys… if you can’t be honest with me, I’m sorry. I can’t help you.
Sonny: Since Betty quit, I’ve been having Mason and Austin followed just in case they go and — and visit their boss.
Brick: Any luck so far?
Sonny: Well, Austin went and vi– he — I don’t know. He was visiting Pentonville. I don’t know who he saw there, but he had a medical bag, like maybe he was doing community service.
Brick: Interesting. I’ll look into it and see what I can find.
Sonny: In the meantime, since we don’t know who they’re both working for, we need to ask ourselves why this person wants information… …on me and Pikeman.
Michael: S-so Dex visited the inmate who was fighting Drew and got him sent to solitary, and Dex reminded him that Drew was under Sonny’s protection.
Carly: Yeah, Sonny told me that he sent Dex there to send a message to back off Drew.
Michael: But when did he tell you this?
Carly: Yesterday. He came by here. He knew I was going to Pentonville to visit Drew, but he asked me if I saw Dr. Gatlin-Holt while I was there.
Michael: And what’d you say?
Carly: The truth. I did. Austin crossed through the visiting area carrying his doctor bag, but that was it. Sonny told me to let him know if I remembered anything else. That’s the other reason Dex was at Pentonville.
Michael: Because of Austin?
Carly: He was following him for Sonny.
The injustice of this is just horrible. I have a stomach ache. It’s so unfair.
It is unfair. Oh, man. I just don’t get how we have a system that you can try and nab somebody’s hard work, all the hard work we’ve done all this time.
Lucy: Boy. You know what? I’m thinking it’s a grift. That’s what it is. It’s a grift. Someone is out to…
Lucy: …Make a big, fat, quick settlement. That’s what it is. But we’re not gonna be swindled. Deception will not be swindled. It’s just a nuisance lawsuit. That’s what it is. They want cash. They’re gonna exploit us for that and try to tarnish our reputation, but they’re not.
Do — do we have any idea who’s behind this?
Lucy: Uh, no. That’s why we’re here, kind of. Don’t you hate it? I hate it. I hate this. I hate this. I hate this. I hate this. I hate this.
Okay, this is really bad.
Do we at least know when the lawsuit was originally filed with the court?
So we’re just completely in the dark?
Uh, yeah. Yep. Yep, we are.
Until the whole nonsense here gets revealed, and then we’re gonna have a very good idea who the culprit is and who we’re up against.
Trina: So, what do you think? There’s plenty of room for you.
Curtis: Well, I, uh — yeah, I thank you. You all went through a lot of trouble, and I appreciate it.
Trina: And your room has the best view of the water. You don’t have to deal with the stairs. And did you see that your bathroom has — it’s wheelchair-accessible?
Curtis: It — I did.
Trina: And I picked out towels in your favorite color.
Curtis: Well, you and your mom certainly did an incredible job.
Trina: Well, it was more mom than me. [ Chuckles ]
Marshall: Hey, son, can we, uh, go out to the patio for a minute? I have a few things I want to go over with you — in private.
Curtis: Yeah. Sure, pop.
Curtis: Patio with my pop. Come on. Hey, pop. What’s up?
Marshall: There’s trouble at the club.
Portia: Trina, honey, I see what you’re trying to do, a-and I appreciate it, but you may be making things worse.
Sonny: Austin and Mason could be working for one of my competitors that heard of Pikeman.
Brick: Sonny, the deeper I dive into Pikeman, the more twistier it gets.
Sonny: Well, what’d you find out?
Brick: Pikeman’s had contracts all over the globe with many different governments, including the U.S.
Sonny: The one thing we know for sure — they make a whole lot of money.
Brick: You would know. They paid you generously.
Sonny: Almost cost me my life if it wasn’t for Dex.
Brick: Maybe someone’s trying to get rid of you so they can get the money for themselves.
Sonny: Well, they’re gonna go through a whole lot of trouble to take something I don’t want.
When I saw Sonny’s guy visiting Book, I assumed he was delivering a message from Sonny. And Book received it loud and clear.
Drew: Look. I never asked for Sonny’s protection.
Cyrus: Cyrus: But you accepted it.
Drew: I consider him a friend of mine. I respect Sonny. But just because I accepted his offer of protection, it doesn’t mean that I am associated with his world.
You don’t want any part of Sonny’s criminal enterprise. I admire your strong principles, but do you really believe you had a choice in the matter? You’re protected whether you accept it or not… which is ironic.
Cyrus: Because, by extension, I now have Sonny’s protection, too.
Carly: I am happy and relieved that this arrangement is still working, that Dex continues to report back to you about Sonny’s businesses.
Michael: Yeah, whatever Sonny lets Dex in on, he reports it back to me.
Carly: Okay, well, did Dex tell you Sonny’s interest in Austin?
Michael: Well, um, okay. Austin has a cousin named Mason Gatlin.
Michael: Yeah. And, uh, he and Austin were responsible for Betty Rutherford being hired. She’s the nanny who looked after Avery for a while, and now it seems that she was their mole.
Carly: I knew something was going on with her. [ Scoffs ]
Michael: So Sonny set her up in the hopes that she would lead him back to whoever they all work for. Dex’s assignment was to follow Austin. And he did — straight to Pentonville.
Carly: That’s where I saw him.
Michael: Yeah, well, now, apparently, Austin went to another room, so Dex couldn’t see who he was visiting with. But did you see who Austin was talking to?
Carly: No, no. I saw him walk through the visiting area carrying his doctor bag. I just assumed he was going to the infirmary. You know what? Maybe Drew could find out.
Trina: I was trying to stay positive for Curtis. All the literature that I read says that the attitude is what makes a difference when adapting.
Portia: I know, honey, a-and I love that you read the literature. I really do.
Trina: But I probably made Curtis feel uncomfortable.
Portia: Trina, honey, you had the best of intentions. And Curtis knows that, too. You love your dad, and you are trying to help. But it j– we just can’t push too hard. We got to let him go at his pace. We can’t just pretend like nothing’s changed.
Marshall: Selina circled back to me about buying the club.
Curtis: What’d she say?
Marshall: Well, basically, she said we should sell it to her before it goes out of business. Now, she didn’t come right out and threaten us that she would run us out of business, but that’s the definite implication I got.
Curtis: [ Sighs ] Maybe we should sell it.
Marshall: Son, have you lost your mind?
Lucy: Jackson Montgomery. So we meet again.
Jackson: Hm. We do.
Lucy: So tell me — whatcha doin’ here?
Jackson: I’m ready for round two with the devious yet somehow… captivating Lucy Coe.
Lucy: Hm! Well, guess what.
Lucy: This time, you are on my turf, mister.
Jackson: Mm-hmm. Oh. That’s absolutely intentional. I mean, after all, you and your “sister” came all the way to Pine Valley to break into my safe. I figured the least I could do was make a trek to Port Charles.
Lucy: Okay. Spill it. Just — really. You didn’t come here to have a nice, sweet, little visit. What are you doing here?
Jackson: I’m here for the Deception case… and to make sure my client gets justice.
Lucy: Who’s your client? Who are you representing, Jackson?
Jackson: Well, now, Lucy… that would be telling.
Curtis: Pop, the circumstances that made me open The Savoy and dedicate so much hard work to its success have radically changed.
Marshall: Son, The Savoy is your baby.
Curtis: Yeah, I know.
Marshall: Look, look. You — you just need a little more time to regroup. That’s all.
Curtis: Sometimes the best thing a successful person can do is walk away and cut their losses.
Marshall: W-we could work through this. You understand? We could make this work. I-I could run the club until you’re ready to come back. We’ll — we’ll call it a father-and-son venture.
Curtis: I’m not even sure I want to go back to it.
Marshall: Sure you do. Come on.
Curtis: No, no. I mean, I get it. It’s good to have a dream, but my dream of opening a nightclub has been realized. Maybe it’s time for me to move on.
Marshall: Okay. Okay. Ultimately, it’s your decision. I’m not gonna push you. But I hope you’ll reconsider.
Trina: I was coming on way too strong. I was over the top. I feel terrible.
Portia: Trina, honey, you did nothing wrong.
Trina: I made Curtis feel uncomfortable. That’s the exact opposite of what I was trying to do.
Portia: But Curtis felt the love, honey. And that’s all that really matters. You made him feel very welcome. [ Chuckles ] But now I just think we need to give him a little bit of room. We need to let him settle a bit. I’m trying to find the balance, too. It’s…so many adjustments that we have to make. But we all love each other. And we’re gonna get through it together. As a family.
Portia: My sweet girl. Aww.
Lucy: You know, I need to tell you something.
Lucy: Your client is a big, fat liar.
Jackson: Oh, my.
Lucy: Obviously, he or she is just trying to exploit Deception’s huge success.
Jackson: Or — or perhaps claim what is rightfully theirs. Hm. What do you think about that?
Lucy: [ Chuckles ] I don’t think much of it ’cause we’re gonna win. And I’ll tell you why. Do you want to know why?
Jackson: Why is that? Oh, gosh, yes.
Lucy: Okay. We did not steal the Deceptor.
Jackson: I hope that’s the truth, Lucy. I really do. I guess time will tell. Hm.
Lucy: Speaking of time, where’s your client? [ Chuckles ] Maybe they’re a bit afraid to show their scheming face.
Jackson: Oh, my client will be here. Don’t you worry about that.
[ Door opens ]
Janice: [ Sighs ] I’m so glad she’s sleeping. She was in a lot of pain earlier. Poor thing.
Dr. Montague: She’ll get the rest she needs.
Janice: Doctor, I don’t think she’s improving. She seems to be getting worse.
Dr. Montague: Her case was pretty severe when she was admitted. These kinds of recoveries take some time.
Janice: Maybe this isn’t the right facility for her. Maybe she should be transferred to a private hospital where she can get more personalized care?
Gladys: Okay. You want honesty?
Nina: That’s always best.
Gladys: I…got roped into a little poker game that I thought would be just a bit of fun. But…what started off as a few friendly hands of poker turned into a losing streak, and I dug myself into a hole.
Nina: [ Stammers ] Wait. Just let me make sure that I-I’m understanding what you’re telling me. This $50,000 is — is not about Sasha or her medical bills. You need the money to pay off your gambling debt?!
Gladys: But I’m getting better.
Nina: At cards?
Gladys: No, I am in treatment. I am going to gamblers anonymous. I just need this one loan to get out of a tight spot. A really tight spot.
Nina: And you came to me because Deception’s stock was frozen because of the lawsuit, so if the lawsuit wasn’t pending, you intended to use Sasha’s money to pay off your gambling debt?
Sonny: Pikeman came to me originally because, you know, they wanted to use my territory to run their merchandise through Port Charles.
Brick: I remember. They went through Valentin Cassadine, right?
Sonny: Yeah, so a man I don’t trust. But the money was so good for the first shipment. A-and you told me that, you know, there were major players. Known globally. So that’s why I agreed to do it. And as promised, the money I made for the deal was incredible, but the money came at a cost… and I’m not sure the risk is worth the reward anymore.
Lucy: What are you doing here? I fired you.
Maxie: I know. I rehired her.
Good job, Maxie.
Lucy: Okay. Actually, that is really good. I do not think Scott is coming.
Okay, well, it’s gonna be fine because Elise is gonna get this case thrown out on its rear right where it belongs, right, Elise?
Elise: I’ll do my best. Jackson Montgomery.
Jackson: Elise Vance.
Elise: So…you’re representing the client suing Deception.
Jackson: I am.
Elise: Well, this should be a slam dunk.
Jackson: Oh, I think so. Uh, for me. Y-you meant for you? No, no.
Jackson: Hey, listen. I understand you took another shot at being the D.A. here in Port Charles, huh? Yeah. It’s got to be tough, falling on your face like that twice.
Elise: Hm. I’m surprised you’re still allowed to practice after that little incident in Pine Valley. When was that?
Jackson: Uh, 20 years ago, Elise. You were a child.
Jackson: It’s ancient history.
Elise: What kind of scheme is your client trying to pull here?
Jackson: No scheme. Lucy Coe’s guilty of theft of intellectual property.
Lucy: Oh, yoo-hoo! Guess what. I’m right here. I-I can hear you. The only thing I am guilty of is making an excellent product that all our customers just love.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Elise: Let me handle this.
Elise: Maxie, I have the updated documents you e-mailed me.
Great. I brought the originals.
Elise: Okay, well, this should be a piece of cake, as long as it’s as you say and someone’s just out for a quick and easy payday.
That’s exactly what it is. Cross my heart.
Well, who would be stupid enough to sue? I mean, it’s obvious that you have the receipts and the proof that you invented the Deceptor.
Marshall: Gotta get over to G.H. My band booked a gig playing for some patients.
Alright. I’ll see you later tonight?
Curtis: Let me go, Portia.
Portia: I-I don’t understand.
Curtis: Literally. Let…me go.
Portia: I think you’re talking crazy. I’m not gonna let you go.
Curtis: It’s not your decision. It’s mine.
Portia: No, no.
Portia: No, no. Y-you don’t know what you’re saying right now. You —
Curtis: I know exactly what I’m saying! I don’t want to see you again!
Curtis: Hey. Babe. Can I just say that… I apologize for the way I spoke to you at the hospital. I was wrong, and you didn’t deserve that.
Portia: Thank you. I really appreciate that. I know that you were going through a lot, so…
Curtis: Well, Marshall is off to the hospital. Trina —
Portia: She went to go see Spencer. And it’s just you and me.
Curtis: And the wheelchair.
Carly: I mean, with Drew inside Pentonville, he could ask around and see who Austin was visiting.
Michael: Look, Mom, I don’t think we should get Drew involved. He’s got enough to deal with right now just trying to survive in that place.
Carly: You’re right. What was I thinking? I mean, I feel like Drew’s already a marked man because he saved Cyrus’ life.
Michael: Just, you know, asking questions, especially if Austin was making a delivery to his boss, will put Drew in even more danger.
Drew: You know, I don’t want to speak for Sonny, but I think it’s pretty safe to assume he would not lift a finger to protect you.
Cyrus: But you would. And you have. Not only did you perform CPR and keep me alive, but you stepped in to defend me from Book. You had no reason to beyond Christian charity. You’re a noble man, Drew.
Drew: I just don’t like watching an old man get beat up, no matter how much I despise you.
Cyrus: Nevertheless, I have a feeling you’d do it again, wouldn’t you? Whether you despise me or not.
Drew: I would.
Cyrus: And that speaks to the man you are. The kind of man I’m trying to be.
Gladys: I would have paid Sasha back.
Nina: I can’t help you.
Gladys: I came clean with you. I was honest with you about why I need the money.
Nina: Either you find the courage to go to Sonny and tell him exactly what’s going on and ask him for the money or you deal with your debt by yourself.
Gladys: Nina, please. I’m asking you —
Nina: Go! Get out of my office! I have work to do! Go!
[ Cellphone rings ]
Dr. Montague: We have a little problem.
Gladys: What did you do? Is Sasha worse?
Dr. Montague: Well, there’s talk that Sasha may need more personalized care and should be transferred to another facility — away from my attentive and gentle care here at Ferncliff. And we both know what that means if it happens.
Gladys: W-what are you gonna do?
Dr. Montague: Well, I’m gonna have to make sure that Sasha is in no condition to talk. So if you want Sasha out, I want my money — all of it — in two days.
Curtis: [ Sighs ] I-I know. I know it was pretty dark. But it’s true. I’m not saying I’m gonna push you away again, because I won’t. But it’s time that we come to the realization about what we can and can’t do. I’m feeling just a bit overwhelmed right now thinking about what I’m losing.
Portia: Look. I can’t even imagine what you’re feeling right now. But I love you, sweetheart.
Curtis: I can’t love you back.
Portia: You do. You do, honey. I know that you do.
Curtis: Baby, that’s not what I’m talking about. I… I just can’t physically love you back.
Portia: Well, I don’t know what kind of woman you think you married… but I’m here for you. And I promise you that we’re gonna get through this. Together.
Brook Lynn: Grandmother! What are you doing here?
Maxie: Tracy, it’s so nice of you to come and support Brook Lynn. And all of us, for that matter. It’s been a really challenging time at Deception. And to be honest, it’ll look good to the judge if he sees someone like you in our corner.
Lucy: I actually agree with you, Maxie. Thank you, Tracy. I mean, it’s nice of you. I’m glad you could put all those decades of our nitpicking and bad blood behind us and be here to lend aid in this horribly difficult time.
Tracy: Actually, I’m just here to protect my legal claim to the Deceptor.
Carly: Oh, God, the last thing I want to do is drag Drew into a feud between Sonny and…whoever.
Michael: Yeah, especially since Drew’s locked in Pentonville.
Carly: I know. And whoever the person is behind Austin and Mason, they must be a serious threat. I mean, Sonny was willing to allow Avery to be near Betty just to find out who it is.
Michael: Yeah. Look, Dex is on it. So am I. He’s watching and reporting everything back to me. Now, if Sonny needs help, I will make sure that he gets it. Yeah.
Sonny: I told Pikeman I’m not gonna move another shipment until they give me proof of who was responsible for the ambush at the warehouse and the shooting at the pool.
Brick: Be cool, Sonny. Be careful. Pikeman’s a heavy hitter. Obviously want to be in business with you. There’s no doubt about that. But if you choose to cut ’em off, they can choose to go in a different direction and remove you from the equation. Find somebody, dare I say, a bit easier to do business with? It’s not like it hasn’t happened before.
Sonny: That’s what Valentin said.
Brick: Maybe Austin and Mason’s boss is trying to create just that kind of scenario — create discord between you and Pikeman to remove you from the situation and let the competitor step in.
Sonny: We’re never gonna know until we find out who my real enemy is.
Drew: You know, Cyrus, just because I couldn’t stand by and watch you get beaten to a pulp or watch you die, that doesn’t mean that I like you.
Cyrus: But I like you, Drew Cain. I know you to be that rarest of things — a man of honor. And you will find that I, too, am honorable. I pay my debts. I owe you my life. I will not forget it.
Gladys: I lied.
Nina: You did?
Gladys: Yes. [ Sighs ] I do have a gambling problem. I was truthful about that. And I do have huge debts because of gambling. But that’s not why I need the $50,000. I need it because… the doctor who’s treating Sasha at Ferncliff won’t let her out until I pay him.
[Music stops playing]
On the next “General Hospital” —
