Curtis: The circumstances that made me open The Savoy and dedicate so much hard work to its success have radically changed.
N’neka: Boss? You’re back!
Curtis: Hey, N’neka.
N’neka: Well, it’s about time!
Esme: Ace kept me on my toes all day. I didn’t even have a chance to eat lunch. I’m starving. That food you got for us looks amazing!
Maxie: [ Sighs ] We’re here, Lulu. I can feel you here, too. Makes me feel closer to you.
James: Mom! Help!
Maxie: What is it?
James: Why is there only sheets in here?
Maxie: Because that is a box that says “bed linens.” What are you looking for?
James: My favorite sweatshirt.
Maxie: That is probably in your room in the box that says “James’ clothes.”
James: No, it’s not. I checked all those boxes.
Georgie: This is yours.
James: Thanks, Georgie. I thought it was lost.
[ Knock on door ]
James and Georgie: Grandpa!
Maxie: Oh, thank you!
Felicia: Congratulations. It’s lovely. Are you happy?
James: This house is great. I have my own room. I love it.
Mac: Thataboy! Way to go! I love it!
Carly: Okay. You just need to call me with any news about Sonny’s arraignment, ’cause I need to figure out what I’m gonna tell Donna.
Michael: Yeah, I’ll call you as soon as I get any information.
Carly: You know, I really thought about going. But I don’t want to get sucked back into all this, you know? So I’m really glad that you’re there.
Michael: Yeah, me too. [ Breathes deeply ] I love you.
Carly: Love you. [ Sighs ] Okay. Hi. Waitress is a little busy, but she will be right with you. Okay?
Elizabeth: Someone’s gonna hit a home run today!
Finn: [ Laughs ]
Violet: Wait. We can’t eat here.
Finn: Why not?
Violet: Kelly’s has its own softball team. They’re the enemy.
Kristina: Hi. Oh. Michael, I’m so glad you came. I was really worried I was gonna be the only one here to show support for Dad. Where is everyone?
Michael: Uh, I don’t know if Dante is coming. Um, some people might think it’d be a conflict of interest since he’s a cop.
Kristina: Well, they would be wrong. Cop or not, he’s still his son.
Dante: Hey, you guys.
Dante: How’s it going?
Kristina: So glad you’re here.
Dante: Yeah. Good to see you.
Nina: I’m so sorry I’m running late. I had to change into something more appropriate for court.
Kristina: You look great, and the only thing that matters is that you’re here.
Dante: How’s Sonny doing?
Nina: Well, according to Diane, he’s calm and ready for this. He’s doing a lot better than I am. I’m a nervous wreck.
Diane: Oh, fantastic. You’re all here. A good showing of family support is a strong optic, even for the most hardened judges.
Carly: Hey, Violet, I appreciate your competitive spirit because I’m pretty competitive myself, but we’re only enemies on the softball field. Like my Aunt Ruby used to say, everyone’s welcome at Kelly’s.
Violet: What if you try to sabotage us?
Elizabeth: Oh, I think Carly’s sabotage days are behind her.
Violet: Okay. But I’m keeping my eye on you.
Carly: I expect nothing less. But I don’t have to sabotage you because the Kelly’s team is definitely gonna beat the G.H. team. I just wish I could play myself, but someone has to run the diner.
Finn: Oh, well, that’s too bad for you guys. I mean, I’ve seen you pitch. You’re a good pitcher. Without you being there, that gives us a good chance to win.
Maxie: It’s beautiful. Thank you, guys.
James: Yeah. Grandpa, come and see my new room! It’s awesome!
Mac: First, let’s see how we can help your mom.
Maxie: Oh, Georgie and James definitely still have boxes stacked up, so…
Mac: Let’s go take care of that. Come on.
Georgie: My room isn’t even near James’!
James: I can play my games full blast!
Felicia: This is just beautiful.
Maxie: Thank you, Mom. We all really love it.
Felicia: And the furniture you picked out is just perfect. And I know you still have other things coming.
Maxie: Yes, lots of new things. For the backyard, the bedrooms, this room, and…
Felicia: Maxie, what’s wrong?
Maxie: [ Sighs ] Mom, it’s just when I bought all of these new things, I thought Deception was on solid ground, and now we might lose everything.
Felicia: Lucy said the case against her is completely baseless.
Maxie: Yeah, I’m pretty sure she said that before she found out who was taking us to court.
Maxie: Tracy Quartermaine.
Felicia: Ohh. She is unbelievable!
Maxie: Not only that, but she brought in this hotshot lawyer from Pine Valley.
Felicia: Pine Valley?
Maxie: Yeah. Some guy named Jackson Montgomery.
Felicia: Oh, no.
Maxie: “Oh, no”? You know him!
Mac: He could have had your mother thrown in jail.
Esme: Gourmet cheeses. Salami imported from Italy. Wow. Spencer, you really went all-out.
Spencer: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. Everybody knows I like to spend money, right?
Esme: What did you do this afternoon?
Spencer: Uh, I was just hanging out at the pool.
Esme: Oh, well, I wish I would have known. I would have brought Ace, and we could have joined you. Your little brother sure does love to swim.
Spencer: He sure does. Yeah. I think he just likes to have his fins on and float around in the water.
Esme: Oh, I know! I know the pool is closed now, but we should get him into the swim lessons early next spring.
Spencer: Yeah! Yeah, we should definitely do that.
[ Knock on door ]
Trina: Hey. Did you get the food? I’m starving.
N’neka: Alright, people. Gather ’round, please. I need everyone’s help for a major event.
[ Applause ]
Curtis: Thank you. Thank you, N’neka, for the impromptu gathering. Uh, and thank you for letting my pop help you keep things running in my absence. I can’t tell you all how much I miss this place. The music, the customers, the DJs. But most importantly, my incredible staff. You all have a way of just making people feel like they’re at home… even for a nightclub.
N’neka: Okay, people. The doors open in just a few minutes. So let’s make this a happy hour to remember. Let’s go, let’s go!
Curtis: Oh, and, N’neka… thank you for stepping up as acting manager.
N’neka: Well, what can I say? I learned from the best. And I plan on learning a lot more from you now that you’re back.
TJ: Sounds like the whole staff missed you a lot, Uncle Curtis.
Kristina: Dad, how you holding up?
Nina: Yeah, a lot of people want to know that.
Sonny: I’m gonna be — I’m gonna be fine. Don’t worry about it.
Kristina: You were arrested by the FBI. Of course we’re worried.
Nina: Diane is good, but come on.
Sonny: Listen to me. I got this.
Diane: Okay. Let’s not further antagonize the U.S. Government. Would everyone take their seats, please?
Sonny: Can I have a word with Dante? Just… I just want you to know that I really appreciate you being here. It means a lot to me.
Dante: Of course, Dad.
Sonny: You can go ahead and — and leave now.
Dante: Well, I don’t — I don’t care about them seeing me here. I’ll tell you what I told Mac. Nowhere in my oath I took with the PCPD does it say that I can’t support my father. So I’m here, and, uh, I’m not going anywhere. Alright.
Esme: Hi! Trina. You must be here for dinner with Spencer. Uh, Ace and I were just leaving.
Spencer: Hey, Esme, uh, you don’t have to go anywhere. There’s more than enough food for all of us if you want to bring him in.
Esme: It’ll only take me a few minutes to pack up Ace and all his baby things. Um, pretend I’m not here.
Spencer: I’m just gonna run really quick and grab us some utensils and things like that from the kitchen. I’ll be right back.
Elizabeth: I’m gonna get some more napkins and ketchup.
Violet: It’s too bad that Spencer doesn’t work here anymore. I’ve seen him play softball before. I knew what to expect from him, but Josslyn’s got volleyball, so that probably means she’s gonna be good at softball, too.
Finn: Right. But, you know, it’s just a game, sweetheart. Um, I want us to have fun. It’s not all about winning.
Violet: What about you, Jake? What do you know about the players from Kelly’s?
Jake: I don’t really know much more than you do, Violet.
Carly: Okay. Here you go.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Carly: Violet is adorable. I love how competitive she is!
Elizabeth: And she’s a perfectionist, like her dad.
Carly: Okay, well, don’t worry. There will be no sabotage. I do not want to get on Violet’s bad side.
Elizabeth: No, but you don’t have to worry about her. She’s a softie.
Elizabeth: By the way, I heard about Sonny’s arrest. I’m really sorry. I’m actually kind of surprised you’re not at the arraignment.
Carly: [ Sighs ] I thought about it. But Sonny’s gonna have tons of people there. And it’s not my life anymore.
Curtis: I don’t think I’ve seen you here before. I’m Curtis Ashford, Savoy’s owner. We got about an hour left on happy hour, so feel free to talk to one of my bartenders about what’s on special.
Jordan: Looking good, Curtis. This is a really great turnout.
Curtis: Well, thank you. And now can I officially welcome — there you are. Welcome the both of you to The Savoy Are you out for anything special tonight?
TJ: Yes, we are. Molly and I have a major announcement to make.
Maxie: Jackson Montgomery could have had you arrested?
Felicia: It’s a long story.
Maxie: I’m not going anywhere.
James: Mom, can we have a barbecue with Grandma and Grandpa?
Mac: That is a great idea. Why don’t the three of us go get what we need and maybe we’ll stop at Kelly’s on the way back for some dessert.
Georgie: Can I order the dessert, Mom?
Maxie: That would be up to your grandpa.
Mac: I don’t see why not. You know what everybody likes, don’t you?
James: You’re not ordering for me!
Georgie: You heard what the man said.
Mac: Let’s go.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ]
Felicia: A few weeks ago, Lucy and I went to Pine Valley.
Maxie: Right. Lucy broke into Jackson Montgomery’s office. I heard him say something about that.
Felicia: Well, actually, she kind of distracted him while I broke into his office.
Maxie: Oh, no. Okay. Well, clearly, you got caught.
Maxie: And he didn’t throw you in jail because…?
Felicia: Anna. They knew each other from before. Which is a good thing because the charges could have been very harsh because I broke into his safe.
Maxie: You broke into his safe?! A-and now he’s working for Tracy, and he’s gonna be out for blood.
Felicia: I hope this doesn’t have any effect on what happens in court.
Maxie: Mom, t-they might actually have evidence that can beat us.
Felicia: You don’t have to worry. Mac and I will help you.
Maxie: I know, Mom. I — I know. It’s just…. I was feeling very proud to be standing on my own two feet. You know? This house. Taking care of the kids. No. You know what? No matter what, I’m gonna make it happen.
Michael: Good luck, Willow. And please remember. You are just a spectator. Okay? Alright. I love you, too. Bye. Okay. Let’s make this quick.
Dex: Look, I know I screwed up throwing the flash drive away in a public trash can, okay? But the more I think about it, the more I think it would have been impossible for the FBI to get anything off of that flash drive. Your mom really did a number on it. It was pulverized. All I threw away were fragments.
Michael: Well, the FBI somehow got ahold of that evidence, and since there’s only one copy, I don’t know how, but they somehow pieced it back together. Look. I got to go.
Kristina: Nina, how are you so calm?
Nina: Oh. It’s an act. I mean, look at my hands.
Bailiff: All rise! Federal court for the Northern District of New York is now in session. The honorable Judge Jarret presiding.
Judge Jarret: Be seated.
Spencer: We are set! Dig in.
Trina: I’m not hungry.
Spencer: [ Chuckling ] What? Trina, you came over here for dinner.
Trina: Yeah, I did. And I’ve lost my appetite.
Trina: Three guesses.
Spencer: Why? Esme?
Trina: You’re getting closer. Keep going.
Spencer: What, you’re upset that I said that she could eat with us? Trina, that wasn’t a part of the original plan. It’s just I came in here with the food, and then she assumed that it was for her.
Trina: No. She assumed that it was for the two of you. There’s a difference.
Spencer: Yeah, you’re right. I just didn’t know how to tell her that she was wrong.
Trina: You know, those assumptions have been happening more and more. You and Esme have been spending so much time together taking care of Ace, it just…
Spencer: Trina, hey, hey. Trina, it’s me. You can talk to me.
Trina: It just feels like… you and Esme as roommates… as Ace’s caretakers… it feels like the boundaries of what you two are to each other… they’re blurring.
Spencer: Not for me, they aren’t.
[ Indistinct conversations ]
Esme: Hi. Miss Spencer, could I please get a high chair?
Carly: Um, sure. Okay.
Elizabeth: Oh, my goodness! You’re getting so big!
Esme: Uh, yeah, his pediatrician says he’s in the 98th percentile for his age.
Elizabeth: Oh, wow. I’m really glad to see you both doing so well.
Esme: Thank you.
Elizabeth: Have a good night.
Finn: Alright. Let’s get to that field, get a good stretch in.
Violet: And no dessert until after the game!
Elizabeth: [ Laughs ]
Jake: Yeah. You guys go ahead. I’ll, uh, catch up later.
Elizabeth: Wait. What? Since when?
Curtis: Alright. We got a table. Got our drinks. What’s the news, man? Spill it.
TJ: I think you should tell them.
Molly: You both know we decided to use a surrogate to have a baby. If the procedure was successful, we should know in a few days if our surrogate is pregnant with our baby.
[ TJ chuckles ]
Curtis: Congratulations. T-that’s amazing. I can’t think of two better people to become parents than you two. Ain’t that right, Grandma? [ Laughter ]
TJ: Here’s to Grandma Jordan and Great-Uncle Curtis!
Jordan: But more importantly, to the hopefully soon-to-be expecting parents.
Georgie: What’s taking James so long?
Mac: Oh, Carly’s probably fixing him up a special dessert or something. So you like the new house?
Georgie: Love it.
Mac: Yeah, I think James does, too. And your mom.
Georgie: Yeah. I think so, too. But…
Georgie: Is Mom okay?
Mac: Well, yeah. Why would you ask that?
Georgie: She works so hard, and she was excited when we got the house, but now…
Mac: Well, now what?
Georgie: She’s acting, like, all happy about everything, but I think she’s worried.
Mac: What? Well, did she say something?
Mac: Well, then why would you ask that?
Georgie: I can just tell. She’s my mom. I love the new house. But if it makes her worry…
Mac: Hey, listen, Georgie. If your mom is worried about anything, we will take care of it, okay?
Georgie: Okay. Thanks, Grandpa.
Maxie: So you and Lucy told Jackson Montgomery that you were sisters.
Felicia: Desperate times?
Maxie: Oh, Mom. You know I love your spirit of adventure.
Felicia: You inherited it.
Maxie: Uh, I don’t know about that. But what I do know is you could have been thrown in jail or in prison. And the kids and I, we need you. We always need you.
Felicia: I know. And so does Mac. But, you know, I can’t swear that anything is gonna be any different because when a friend needs you…
Maxie: I know. Trust me. I know. I just want you to promise me that you’ll exhaust all your other options before you resort to doing something illegal.
Felicia: Yeah, well, that’s why I’m taking this new path.
Judge Jarret: Mr. Michael Corinthos, Jr. You are being charged with seven violations of Federal Law section 18, section 922, the unauthorized transportation of classified weapons. I understand that the evidence in this case is classified and being submitted under seal?
Attorney: Uh, at this time, we moved to withdraw the charges without prejudice.
Sonny: Ava, we already set the trap. We just have to spring it. And then we’re gonna get the answers we need.
Judge Jarret: You want to withdraw the charges now?! What — what are we even doing in court today?
Attorney: When we brought the federal charges against the defendant, we thought we had overwhelming amounts of evidence. Turns out we didn’t.
Judge Jarret: Well, since the U.S. Attorneys are not ready to proceed, I have no other options. Mr. Corinthos, the charges against you have been dropped. You are free to go. But as a reminder, Mr. Corinthos, the charges against you have been dismissed without prejudice, so they may be refiled at any time.
Sonny: I understand, your honor.
Judge Jarret: The next time I see any of you in my court, I want the case to be fully prepared! Court is adjourned.
Bailiff: All rise!
Nina: Ohh! [ Laughs ] Okay.
Kristina: Wait, wait, wait. Someone explain to me what exactly is going on here.
Diane: What’s going on is that, inexplicably, it’s all over. Congratulations, Sonny. As the judge said, you’re free to go.
[ Laughter ]
Georgie: Took you long enough.
James: Carly had it made special. And I saw Matty from Little League.
Mac: Oh! Well, he’s a good player. Hey, and so is that new catcher.
Mac: Yeah. I saw you and Dylan talking at the game the other day. What did he say to you?
James: He asked me why my dad wasn’t at the game.
Mac: Oh. What’d you tell him?
James: I told him that my dad died and he was a hero.
Mac: Yes, he was.
James: I don’t think Dylan believed me. That’s why I pointed at you.
Mac: Well, why did you point at me?
James: I told him you were my grandpa and that you’re a hero, too. And all the other guys told him it was true.
Mac: You think I’m a hero?
James: Yep. You are, Grandpa.
Maxie: So, being a patient advocate is about as far from cracking a safe as you can get.
Felicia: I wasn’t a professional criminal.
Maxie: Tell that to Jackson Montgomery. But seriously, Mom, I think this patient-advocate thing is really cool.
Felicia: I love being a grandmother, and I love the life that I have with Mac. But I still have time for something else, and I want to do something meaningful.
Maxie: Well, I think you’re making the right choice.
Felicia: When I was at G.H. and I saw Stella Henry working with this young woman, it was very clear to me that what she was doing was making a big difference. And I couldn’t help thinking about when you were sick and in the hospital and waiting for your heart transplant and how grateful I was that we actually had family on staff to get us through that. But even so, there were times where I felt overwhelmed by a system that I just didn’t understand.
Maxie: I’m sure there are a lot of people that feel that way.
Felicia: But if I just had someone to guide me through it — not tell me what to do, but to show me the way. That’s what Stella was doing for that young woman. And it was then that I knew that’s what I want to do now.
Elizabeth: Jake, why can’t you just come with us right now?
Jake: I have stuff to do. Okay?
Elizabeth: Can you be more specific than “stuff”?
Jake: No, but I promise you I’ll be at the game. Plus, I can pay for my own rideshare. I’ve been saving all my lawn-mowing money. Alright?
Violet: You still didn’t explain what “stuff” means.
Finn: Well, I think maybe what Jake is trying to say is maybe he doesn’t want to talk about it, and maybe we shouldn’t push him, alright? So why don’t we head on over to the field, alright? And, Jake, we’ll — we’ll see you at the game, alright, buddy?
Carly: Here you go.
Esme: Wow. I still can’t believe that Ace can sit up all on his own. I mean, it seems like he does something new every day.
Carly: Yeah, he’s pretty cute. And I remember when my first-born was that age. Every day was a new experience.
Esme: Well, that’s how I feel about life with Ace. I mean, sometimes it’s really overwhelming, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. And even though Baby’s dad isn’t in the picture, his big brother, Spencer, has really stepped up and helped out a lot with Ace. In a lot of ways, I’m a very fortunate first-time single mom.
Spencer: Okay. I know that the old Esme is somewhere inside her still. And one day, she might come back. But I will do anything to protect my little brother. And, honestly… living with Esme hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. When my grandmother told me that she and Kevin were gonna be going overseas to look for my father, I thought that cohabitating with her was going to be an impossibility, but somehow we’ve managed it. And none of that is to say that — look. I don’t want to be with her for any other reason other than that we’re just co-parenting Ace. That’s it. Any romantic feelings that I have for her are gone. And those feelings weren’t even real feelings. It was puppy love. The only one who I want to be with, the only person who I feel for, is you. And I can prove it.
Jordan: It’s really good to see you back here at The Savoy.. in your element. The staff, the customers. Everyone is so excited to have you back where you belong.
Curtis: Yeah. Well, a few things have changed.
Jordan: I know that. And I’m not trying to minimize what happened to you. I can’t begin to imagine what it’s costing you to be here. In that chair. But you’re doing it. And, honestly, you’re making it look easy.
Curtis: Oh, it’s been anything but easy.
Jordan: Well, I just want you to know that I will always think of you like family. And not just because we’ll both be connected by Molly and TJ’s baby. I mean that, Curtis. I’m here for you.
TJ: We’re back for round two.
Molly: I guess that’s one bright spot of using a surrogate. I can still enjoy a cocktail — if and when Andrea tells us she’s pregnant.
Curtis: Well, again, I hope you get your exciting news very soon, because I know I’m excited about being a great-uncle. About as excited as Jordan is about being a grandma.
Jordan: Uh — no, no, no, no, no. That just means I have nine months to come up with optional nicknames.
Curtis: Fair enough. I have to get back to work. You know, circulate. It’s good for business. Congratulations.
Kristina: Dad, I just — I always knew deep down that this was just a huge mistake.
Sonny: Thank you, sweetheart.
Dante: H-how? I don’t understand. How did they not have the evidence to back up these charges?
Attorney: I don’t understand. What happened to the evidence?
Moss: We got played. We got false information from a source which has always been reliable in the past.
Attorney: Until now?
Moss: Right. It’s obvious that Corinthos pulled a fast one so that no weapons would be found.
Nina: Sonny, the million ways I saw this playing out, I prayed for this one. Thank god it’s over! Thank god.
Sonny: Diane, job well done, as usual.
Diane: [ Laughs ] Oh, please. As much as I would love to take credit for this dismissal, I can’t. Appears the U.S. Attorneys thought they had something that they didn’t. It also appears that this comes as no surprise to you. Not one bit.
Felicia: [ Laughs ]
James: I have to put my dessert in the refrigerator or else it’s gonna melt!
[ Laughs ] Did you buy out the store?
Mac: Well, James wanted hot dogs. I know you like chicken. I got a couple of steaks and a meatless thing for Georgie.
Georgie: And he’s gonna barbecue corn on the cob.
Maxie: That sounds perfect.
James: I found it!
Maxie: Oh. Okay. That’s for Grandpa to use.
Mac: [ Chuckles ] Thank you.
Georgie: Grandpa was gonna buy coals, too, but I told him I saw them in the storage bin. Also, that thing used to start the fire.
James: I’ll light the fire!
Maxie: No, you won’t.
Mac: No! No, you won’t! Not until you’re older. That’s for Grandpa.
Mac: Let’s get started.
James: This house is the best ever!
Felicia: Yeah, it is, sweetheart, isn’t it? [ Laughs ]
Mac: Come on!
Felicia: They’re happy.
Trina: What’s this?
Spencer: It’s for you. Open it.
Trina: Oh. They’re beautiful. But what do they mean?
Spencer: They’re turtle doves.
Trina: Oh. Oh! From the Christmas carol. A partridge in a pear tree.
Spencer: Right. And where was I last Christmas?
Trina: In Pentonville.
Spencer: Yeah, my Uncle Cyrus gave those to me so that I’d have something to give to you.
Trina: But you didn’t give them to me.
Spencer: No, because I didn’t know that you wanted them at the time. So I left them, but then my Uncle Victor picked them up, and… he left them to me in his will. Um, you know what, though? I just realized — why would you want something that I got from my Uncle Cyrus and my Uncle Victor? I mean, how non-romantic is that? So you know what? I’ll just take these back.
Trina: Uh, no, no, no, no. No, you don’t.
Carly: Michael? How can there be news so soon? Was Sonny’s case postponed?
Michael: No. Just the opposite. All the charges were dropped.
Carly: Dropped? How is that possible? I thought the U.S. Attorney had tons of evidence against Sonny.
Michael: All I know is that they said they didn’t have as much evidence as they thought they did. The judge was not happy, but in the end, yeah, the charges were dropped and Sonny’s a free man.
Carly: I mean, that’s great. Totally unexpected… but great.
Esme: You did not like your high chair, did you, buddy? Yeah, Spencer and Trina can have their date. We don’t care, do we? As long as we have each other. Right, Ace?
Jake: I got us a table.
Charlotte: That’s great. Thanks, Jake.
Kristina: Here I took the whole day off to be with you here. [ Chuckles ] I’m really glad I did.
Sonny: Thank you both for being here. It means everything to me.
Dante: Where else would we be? I’ll walk out with you. Come on.
Kristina: Alright. Love you, Dad.
Sonny: Love you, too.
Diane: Congratulations again, my friend.
Sonny: Thank you, Diane.
Diane: As a reminder, these charges were dismissed without prejudice, which means that if they ever do find that evidence against you, they can be refiled at any time.
Sonny: Yeah, I understand.
Diane: Good. Bye.
Nina: Ready to go home?
Sonny: Yeah. Can you give me a minute with… Dex?
N’neka: Curtis? Why are you back here and not out in the main room in the thick of things?
Curtis: Just taking stock. Figuring where I fit in. Or even if I fit in at all.
Trina: You just gave me this gift. You can’t just take it back.
Spencer: Trina Robinson, those doves have passed through the hands of not just one, but two of my criminal great-uncles. I mean, I must have been out of my mind to think that this would be an acceptable gift for you.
Trina: Okay, so why did you give it to me?
Spencer: Well, because every time I look at those figurines, I think about how much I missed you last Christmas and how much I wanted you to know that I was thinking about you.
Trina: And that’s why I want to keep half the gift.
Spencer: Half the gift?
Trina: Yeah. Okay?
Trina: So… there’s two doves.
Trina: I want you to take one.
Trina: And I’ll take the other one.
Spencer: Okay. But why?
Trina: Isn’t it obvious?
Spencer: Yeah, but maybe I just want to hear you say the words.
Trina: It’s a reminder… that just like these two doves, we are a matched pair. And just like these two doves, we belong together.
Jake: Did I tell you I started a new painting?
Charlotte: No, you didn’t. What’s the subject matter?
Jake: Well, I wanted to paint something that you’d like. And I know how much you like riding horses, so I’m painting a horse.
Charlotte: That’s so cool. I can’t wait to see it.
Esme: Um, excuse me.
Esme: I’m ready for the check, please.
Carly: Oh, okay.
Esme: Thank you. Um, but b-before you go, do you still rent the rooms upstairs?
Carly: Um, yes, I do.
Esme: There happen to be any vacancies?
Dex: I don’t understand what happened with your case. I thought the U.S. Attorney had a ton of evidence against you.
Sonny: Why weren’t you on the docks when the Feds showed up?
Dex: Carly called me. She got a warning from a longshoreman that he overheard that there was gonna be a raid on our shipment that night.
Dex: I didn’t have a chance to warn the other guys, but I managed to slip out before the raid started.
Sonny: They’re gonna drop the charges on Gabe and the rest of the guys who got caught.
Dex: How is that even possible? Weren’t they caught with multiple Pikeman crates?
Sonny: You know what was in the crates?
Dex: I assumed it was more unauthorized weapons like the last shipment. I don’t see how the guys could get out of that. Then, again, I don’t see how you got out of those charges.
Sonny: The crates were from Pikeman. When they opened the crates up, the Feds, you know what they found? Incredible coffee beans. You did good. Take the rest of the night off.
Nina: Everything taken care of?
Sonny: Yeah, everything’s taken care of. It’s all done. Let’s go.
On the next “General Hospital” —
Chase: Something doesn’t add up.
Elizabeth (to Finn): Imagine it because it’s gonna happen sooner or later.
Sasha (to Cody): I have nobody left.
Cody: You have me.
Gladys (to Nurse Janice): How could you let this happen?
Michael (to Sonny): There’s something I need to tell you.
Dante (to Kristina): I’m not the one you have to convince, remember?
Sonny (to Nina): That was a chance I was willing to take.
