THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
e[ Strumming guitar ] Psst! You talking to me? Yeah. Just making sure that the coast is clear. No granny sightings? Tracy? No, no, she’s not here. If I’m playing my guitar, you can rest assured that tracy is nowhere in the vicinity. She’s having a hard time wrapping her head around the fact that I’m eddie, not ned. She gave me an earful yesterday about the evils of the music industry, so…
[ Chuckles ] I bet she did. Yeah. I hope you didn’t listen to her. Oh, no, not even close. I actually have an important meeting today that, if all goes well, you will be looking at a successful music manager. Oh. “My beautiful date”? Marshall’s right about one thing. But do you think this is a date? Well…
[ Chuckles ] If it gets us free drinks, I don’t see why not.
[ Knock on door ] Ah. Hi, anna. Hi. Um, I’m so sorry to interrupt. Oh, not at all. Not at all. I was just waking up from a [Chuckles] Late night at the savoy. What brings you by this morning? Well, I was, um, wondering whether i would be allowed to look at the security footage from the corridor outside the suite where we were staying. Why do you want to look at the security footage? Why? Because of the break-in. What break-in? She’s still sleeping. Oh, good. How was she after I left last night? She was fine. She just stayed in her room after you left. Good. Thank you, by the way. Yeah, of course. I love charlotte. She is welcome here anytime. You know that. I know. I-I just didn’t give you much of a heads-up, and I appreciate it. Gave me a chance to make some arrangements, though. Arrangements for what? I mean, valentin, what are you gonna do about charlotte targeting anna? Yes, I’ll accept the charges. Drew: Carly.
Hey, good morning. Aw, it is now that I hear your voice. Are you staying safe? Doing my best. I miss you. Believe me, I miss you, too. How’s it going? Do you have any news or information for me to give to sonny? Not yet. I am, uh… I’m still working on it. Good morning. Ah! The delightful ms. Miller. Robert, flattery will get you everywhere. Hmm. I see you’ve come out for work. Well, you said this was a working breakfast. I did. Uh, please, sit. Yep. So what case are we working on? Well, I may have found a way to help drew, and I get to see you at the same time. Well, either way, you have my attention. Hub. Tenth floor. L-let me transfer you to the icu. Willow! It’s so good to see you. I’ve thought about this day a lot, especially during my treatments. I used to watch the nurses, picture myself working alongside them again, and now I finally am. Yes, you are, and everyone on staff couldn’t be happier to have you back working with us. We really missed you. Thank you, deanna. I missed all of you.
[ Telephone rings ] Your first call back. You want to take that? Absolutely. Tenth floor nurses’ station.
[ Cellphone rings ] Hey.
Where are you with the subpoenas? I’m working on getting gladys’ bank records. Hopefully soon. Okay, well, what about the toxicology report? That subpoena is gonna take a little bit longer. That’s time sasha doesn’t have.
I, um… I asked around, put some feelers out, but unfortunately I haven’t come up with anything yet. Oh, drew, be careful, please. I mean, if you feel like things are getting dangerous, I want you to back off. I will. Promise me.
I promise. Now, enough about me. How are you? Yeah, I mean, I’m doing fine. Except I hate that you’re not here. I know. How are the girls? They’re great. I mean, donna and josslyn are doing great. What about you? Have you seen scout and sam? Well, scout just started school. I mean, she’s really busy. She’s got homework and soccer practice and swim lessons. And so, no, I haven’t seen much of her, but I guess that’s probably for the best. You know what? I have diane working every angle to get you out of there. But until then, you can’t cut yourself off from the people who love you, especially scout. What have your sleuthing skills sussed so far? I did a bit of back checking on judge kim. And? Well, it seems that he’s, uh, pushing for a promotion to the second circuit court of appeals. Oh-ha-ha. Well, appearing to be tough on major crime — that would endear him to the second circuit court. But — but why go after somebody like drew, give him an overly harsh sentence? Forget about drew. Think about his girlfriend and her ex-husband. Once again, all roads lead to sonny. Valentin
and I weresupposed to have dinner in the hotel restaurant last night, and we changed our minds, decided to order room service. And then by the time we got to the suite, someone had broken in. What? I know. Oh, anna. I — well, I filed a report with the pcpd. Surely — I-I’m so sorry that this happened to you at my hotel. No, it’s not your fault. You — this is the first I’m hearing of this, honestly, and which is very strange, because nina is usually very good about — about communicating with me about hotel business. Did she leave a message somewhere or something? It’s possible, but she didn’t communicate with me directly. I mean, as I said, I was very distracted last night. Let me see. Maybe she left a message on my business line, but… I just want to apologize on behalf of the metro court hotel. Is there anything at all that I can do for you? I mean, you know, whatever you need. I assume you’ve been moved into a different suite. Oh, yes. Yeah. Your staff were great. They moved us almost immediately, and I’m fine. Really, I’m — thank you, though. Any idea who might want to do this to you? Yeah. I mean, it’s possibly the same person that burned my house, I think.
[ Sighs ] Anna, I’m sorry. If there’s anything that you need, I’m here for you. Yes, there’s something you can do. Name it. So, the security footage. Yeah. I was told it’s missing, and I-I just wanted to make sure there’s no misunderstanding.
[ Chuckles ] Missing? No. We have a state-of-the-art security system here. I can assure you of that. All right, well, if you can access the footage — but if it is missing… mm-hmm. …Maybe you can pull it up from another source, like the mainframe server or something? Okay, about, uh, what time did the break-in happen? Between 7:00 and 9:00 P.M., I’d say. All right, and I am just… looking up what suite you were staying in. What I would like is the corridor outside that suite, the footage from there, and also the surrounding area. Don’t worry, I know this will not be a problem. Thank you. Well, first, I need to keep charlotte close. I need to keep a watchful eye on her. I-I think I’ve been distracted. I’ve — I’ve obviously neglected her. Distracted, maybe. Neglecting her? No. My daughter is running around doing god knows what. She’s a child. That’s something I’ve obviously forgotten. I need to spend more time with her. You’ve always put charlotte first. You always have. Have I? Have I? ‘Cause I don’t think she feels that way. And now she’s targeting anna for my absence. Well, your daughter is gonna need more than just time with her dad. At some point, you are going to have to confront her about everything that she has done. I know. But first, I need to know the extent of my daughter’s crimes. If we can get the bank statements, it could provide circumstantial evidence. But I bet — I bet you those statements are gonna show that gladys withdrew a ton of sasha’s money. I mean, probably taken out in cash. Right. Well, if gladys was paying montague in cash, we won’t be able to prove it. And that means the only thing we have tying him to sasha and keeping her in ferncliff and almost killing her is cody. N-no. No one is gonna believe cody. Well, the other option is to try and prove that montague was giving sasha mood-altering drugs. Yeah, well, one step at a time, okay? First, we need to prove there was a drug. Mm. We’ve got to get the toxicology report. I think I have a way to get it.
Why don’t you tell meabout this meeting of yours? I could use a distraction. The lyrics just aren’t flowing for me this morning. Okay, so there is this amazing singer. Her name is blaze. She’s a total rising star, and I want to be the one to take her to the top. She is an incredible talent, like beyoncé level. Wow. She must really be something. Well, I wouldn’t be signing her if she wasn’t special. Oh, well… so she’s already agreed to work with you, then? Not exactly. We’re actually meeting today, and I am going to give her the full-court press about how she should sign with me. If she were smart, she would take the deal. You’ve got a lot going for you. Well, if all goes well, maybe I could represent you. What do you think? I’m not sure if you’d want me. Marshall ashford called this morning and offered me a gig at the savoy tonight. That’s great. Well, it is, except — well, it’s kind of stupid, but I-I promised him that I would finish this song, and I am not going to finish this new song. So my music career could be over before it even gets started. What? What is it? It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Anna, you were — you were right. I mean, the — the file containing the footage from noon to midnight is — is missing from the area around your suite. It’s, like, been wiped from the server. Could it be a computer glitch or…?
[ Chuckles ] If it is, it’s the first time that’s ever happened. Who else has access to the server it’s stored on? It’s only me and nina. I mean, hotel security can get the security footage, but they can’t have access to the server. All right, and how long do you typically archive your security footage? Three years before it’s deleted. Obviously, whoever broke into my suite, they — they hacked into your system and they deleted themselves breaking in. This does not sound like a random break-in, anna. This is obviously a professional job. Yeah, it does imply whoever’s after me is… somewhat sophisticated. The first thing I need to know is, did charlotte burn anna’s house? Oh, my god.
[ Scoffs ] I can’t imagine charlotte would do that to anyone, let alone anna. I just wish this was a mistake, some sort of misunderstanding. Oh, well, yeah, because not in 100 years would I think that charlotte would break into anna’s room, trash the place, destroy her clothes, write a threatening message. But we have that security footage. I mean, where was charlotte when anna’s house burned? She was at camp, but that’s an hour away. She could have taken a rideshare. Well, do you keep track of her rideshare history? I mean, do — do you keep track of her spending? I thought I did. I just — how could I be so stupid? No, valentin, valentin. You cannot blame yourself for any of this. I do. I do. I sent her to live with sam and dante. Who knows what she tells them that I’m okay with or not okay with? I mean, I have no idea what she’s up to when I’m not around. Carly, I wish I could talk to you all day. Carly: Yeah, I know.
Me, too. I got to go.
[ Sighs ] I love you. Same. Talk to you soon, okay? Bye. Cain. You serious about my son getting that internship at aurora? 100%. Yeah, that doctor you were asking about? Yeah. Gatlin-holt. Yes, him. I see where you’re going with this, robert. Figured you would. It’s a fascinating theory. So judge kim hands drew an overly harsh sentence, ridiculous, paving the way for the justice department to swoop in, provide carly with a deal — we will reduce drew’s sentence if, and only if, you, carly, flip on your ex-husband. There’s nothing to indicate that the justice department even know what’s going on here. It could be just the work of some overzealous judge who wants to score a few points. Either way, it could benefit drew.
[ Chuckles ] I love the way you think. Thank you. Shall we take this a step further? We still talking about the case?
[ Laughs ] We are. So, pure speculation. If judge kim is working on his own, then the justice department might want to have drew’s case reassigned to avoid even the appearance of impropriety. So my question for you is, where do I go… uh… …to do a — I-I’m gonna have to cut this short. Anna’s just arrived. Thank you. Willow. Hey. It’s so good to see you back at the hospital. Thank you, sam. It’s — I really missed it. I spent a lot of time here as a patient. It’s nice to be back as a nurse. Yeah, well, they are really lucky to have you. Uh, so what are you doing here? Is there anything I can help you with? Uh, I hate to hit you up on your first day, but, yeah, I-I do need a favor. And it’s — it’s not for me. It’s for sasha.
Okay, so your messagesaid it was important. What’s going on? Uh, you need to see this for yourself. Okay. See what? Well, why don’t you, um — ah! — Just sit yourself here. -Okay. -And I’ll join you in a minute. Wait. Where are you going? To get my briefcase and say goodbye to diane. Okay. Ah, I’m sorry, love. We got to cut breakfast short. Oh, well, love, you have been, uh, very helpful. Um, we’ll compare notes and, uh… do this some other time. That’s okay. I got it from here.
[ Stutters ] Breakfast is on me. Okay. I mean, I’ll — I’ll make it up to you. That’s okay. Totally not necessary. Come on, eddie. I know what it’s like struggling to finish a song. If the lyrics aren’t coming, you can’t force it. Your gut will tell you when it’s the right time to finish. Well, I appreciate it, but what am I gonna sing tonight? Marshall and the crowd will be expecting a new song. Well, maybe you could break out some of the classics. You can never go wrong with those. Well, I’ll figure something out. I hope you’re gonna be there. Oh, absolutely. I wouldn’t miss it. You know, I think there’s someone else who’d like to go. Maybe you can give her a personal invitation. Thanks for the advice. You’re pretty sharp, brook lynn. That blaze would be lucky to have you. This can’t be right. The security backup is even missing.
[ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Cellphone rings ] Oh. Hey, olivia. What’s up?
Uh, anna devane
was just in my office. She was telling me all about the break-in in her suite last night. Uh, do you know anything about this? Uh, y-yeah. I-I mean, I’m so sorry. Yeah, when I found out about it, I meant to tell you, but I just got distracted by work. Well, anna asked to see the security footage from the area around her suite the night of the break-in, and it’s — like, it’s missing from the server.
I know you were
in my office last night.
Is — is there any chance
that you tried to pull up the footage and, I don’t know, you accidentally deleted it or something? Y-you’re right. I-I did — I pulled up the footage and — but you know what? To tell you the truth, it was — it was already gone. So, listen, can we just talk about this when I get into the office? I have to go. Bye. Well, hi, sleepyhead. How was your night in the guest room? Where’s papa? Anna. Hey, it’s dante. I-I just read a report that — that said there was a break-in in your suite? I kind of wish I had heard it from you and not the police report, but, uh, you give me a call when you get a chance. Okay? Thanks. Dante. The, uh, desk sergeant said you were in here. Yeah. Okay, great. W-what is it, valentin? I need to talk to you privately. Okay. It’s kind of important. What about? Charlotte. Thank you. I’ll be back in just a second. So have you or dante heard from sasha or cody? I mean, do you know if they’re still together? Is sasha okay? Uh, I, um — I can’t go into details right now, but there may be a way for you to help sasha. Sasha is one of my best friends. She has put herself on the line for me so many times. I will do whatever is needed. Okay. Um… dante and I have a theory that dr. Montague, the, um, psychiatrist who was appointed to evaluate sasha, has been drugging her, undermining her mental health, and making her appear mentally ill. Oh, my god. That’s — that’s horrible. Why would a doctor do that? Right. Sorry. You can’t go into details. You know, it never made sense that sasha suddenly went off the deep end and stabbed cody. And then being sent to ferncliff seemed so extreme. What do you need me to do? Okay, the first step is proving it, so I need a copy of the toxicology report from the day that sasha stabbed cody. Do you think you can access that? The doctor you were asking about went to solitary. Why? Who was in solitary? Bobby lennon. He attacked a guard. And that’s who the doctor was here seeing. He — wait, he was here seeing a guard? No, no, lennon. The guards beat him up pretty badly, so the warden wanted to keep it quiet. Dr. Gatlin-holt. That’s who he was here visiting? I got my information right from the warden’s right hand. Was — was he here to see anybody else? No. One and done. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Wait a second.
Why would lennon attack a guard? He would know the guard could destroy him. Well, who knows? I mean, maybe he did it to get drugs from the doctor. I mean, you’d be surprised at what a lot of guys around here would do to get drugs. Well, that’s all I got. I don’t know what else to tell you. All right. Thank you. Yeah. Well done. Thank you. And your son — what’s his name? Keith? Yeah, yeah. Keith will be well taken care of. He’ll get far more than an internship at aurora.
[ Anna sighs ] Best part of giving a gift is giving the gift. Uh, what is this? Come on, just open it. No, you’re not the gift-giving type.
[ Scoffs ] This is no time to editorialize. Just — just open it. Come on. It’s not even my birthday. Yes, well, we went to a lot of trouble. A lot of people went to a lot of trouble to get this here, anna. You are so gonna love this. Yeah. Robert. You like it, huh? Say yes. What did you do? Ah, I knew it! You’re gonna love this. Thank you.
[ Cellphone chimes ] I just sent you a picture of it. Yeah. I got it. Great. You were right. And it’s bad. It’s all set. There you go. Hey, nina. Charlotte, hi. How’s it going? How’s school so far? Hi, carly. It’s — it’s going okay. We had a little sleepover, and, of course, uh, I have nothing in my kitchen for us to make breakfast. And even if my refrigerator was fully stocked, we’d still get a better breakfast here. Hey, well, that’s kelly’s — everybody’s home away from home. So, charlotte, do you want the usual? Y-you have a usual? I have the french toast when jake and I eat breakfast here. That’s right. Extra cinnamon? Yes, please.
[ Chuckles ] Okay. What’s the occasion? What brings you here? I just wanted to see papa. I’m glad you did. What did you do today? Where have you been? I was with jake. Jake and I scootered over to the promenade at the court’s lane waterfront. Since I was close, I thought I’d visit papa. Do you guys want to see something cool?
[ Laughs ] Yeah. Jake almost fell into the fountain. And in this one, I dared him to eat all the boba from the tea.
[ Chuckles ] Oh. Nina? Uh, I’m sorry. It’s just crimson has me very distracted lately. Do you want to order something? Charlotte and I have been apart far too long. She made me realize that last night when she showed up at anna’s hotel suite. Was that after the break-in? That’s why I wanted her to spend the night at nina’S. They’re still pretty close, and I wanted her to feel assured. And going forward, I want her to feel safe and secure. So I’m taking steps for the two of us to live together again full-time. Oh. Okay. I mean, that’s great. I mean, she — she misses you. I’m grateful to you and sam. You’ve been terrific. But I have a lot of time to make up for, you know? Maybe you could, uh, let her come by and visit every once in a while. Her and rocco were getting along pretty good. Believe me, I know now more than ever how important family is to charlotte. Hey, um, what are your thoughts on that break-in? Well, I think whoever’s done this is trying to unsettle anna. And I think they’ve succeeded.
[ Sighs ] Hi, blaze. Oh, no, no, no, no, no. We’re all set. I, um — I actually just wanted to call to let you know I’m really looking forward to our meeting. I think it could be the start of something really great. Yeah, I’ll see you soon. I want to know what happened to the footage from last night. Okay, w-well, it doesn’t just disappear. How could someone get into my security system and, what, just take down the security footage? What? Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, no, no, no, no. I don’t want to hear any excuses. The metro court hotel pays your company a small fortune to take care of this stuff. It is supposed to be secure. Okay. No, I want to know what the hell happened, and I want to know who’s responsible. Yes.
[ Sighs ] What?! Bad time? I’m gonna go to the restroom and wash my hands. Oh, yeah. Okay. I’m gonna get you a menu. Okay. Does charlotte come in here frequently? She’s been here a few times since she got back from camp. Is she usually alone, or is she with someone? What are you doing? Why do you want to know so much about charlotte? Well, valentin — he’s curious, you know, about what his daughter is doing since they spend so much time apart. She’s with dante and sam. She’s fine. I-I know she’s fine, carly. But you’ve raised a teenage daughter, right? You know that they don’t tell their parents everything, especially fathers. And that is what valentin is facing with charlotte. I’ve seen her in here with jake a few times. That’s it. Is she ever alone? Maybe once or twice, I think. Ever with anyone else? Oh, my god. I’ve only seen her with jake. That’s it. Okay. Thank you. Are you two talking about me? Hey. Hey. What’s, uh — what, you got something? I did.
[ Sighs ] Read it and weep. It’s really bad. But this is the first step in proving that montague was drugging sasha. Robert: Okay, there’s a switch on the back. Okay, that’s it. Yeah, that’s it. Push that. All righty. Well, don’t just hold it. Look at the pictures I uploaded. Come on. I’m treasuring the moment. Well, that’s what the pictures are for. You’ve got to look at them. Yeah. Number two. Look at number two. You’re gonna love it.
Love, love, love
the quiet’s getting way too loud
for a while that’s — that’S…
I want to live like every coast is clear
I could see the stars
from every side of this big world of ours
and charming boulevards
Sorry.That was very rude. I don’t want to seem unwelcoming. I-I just — I’ve got a lot going on at work today. I can see that. You look, uh, intense. Is work always this stressful for you? Well, you are passionate about your music, and I am passionate about my hotel. Fair enough. Speaking of my music… what? Did you finish the song? No, no, no, no. But the end will come to me eventually. Right. And when it does, I know it’s gonna be spectacular. One can only hope. But I did take another step forward in my music career. Really? How so? Marshall ashford is as good as his word. He called me this morning and asked me to perform at the savoy.
[ Laughs ] Oh, my god! When? Tonight. Ah! Oh, my god.
[ Laughing ] That is such great news. Uh, that’S… that’s really great news. I — [ Laughs ] Congratulations. Um… I know it’s gonna be great. It’s, uh — it’s, uh — it’s gonna be a really fun gig. Um, if you’ll excuse me, please. I got — I got a lot of work to do. Hotel’s not gonna run itself, right? Yes, the patient’s being transported to radiology now. Thank you. Willow, how’s yourfirst day going? It’s great. This was the perfect day for me to return to work. Dante: What am i looking at here? Sasha’s toxicology report. Wow. How did you get this?
[ Chuckles ] All right, so she’s got two drugs in her system. Yeah, the fluoxetine, which is an antidepressant she already had a prescription for, and dextroamphetamine. And when taken in combination with the antidepressant, it can cause hallucinations, paranoia — similar symptoms to a psychotic break. The dextroamphetamine must have been the drug that dr. Montague gave her to finally put her over the edge. Amazing. So how do we prove it? Drew. What do you want, cyrus? I wanted to warn you. Warn me? About — about what? The warden’s on a tear. Why? Rumors are circulating that she’s up for a big job. She can’t have anything happen that makes her look bad or incompetent. I’m hearing she’s putting the place on lockdown to make sure there are no incidents and nothing goes wrong. Lockdown? That’s go– that’s gonna put everybody on edge. Well, just keep your head down. Stay invisible. Yes, we were talking about you. About what? About how it seems like you have grown up overnight. You know who you remind me of at your age? Who? Lulu. Do you really think I’m like my mom? Oh, yeah. I know you adore your dad. But don’t forget, you’re a spencer, too. Oh, um, if you excuse me. Hey. Well? I just came from a chat with robert scorpio. Okay. I could really use some good news. He gave me a little insight as to why judge kim might have handed such a harsh sentence down to drew and what we can do about it. You miss your mom. Every day. I-I promised her I’d take care of rocco and not to worry about us and just to get better. But it still makes me sad she’s still in a coma. I know. But I always feel better when I’m with my papa.
[ Laughs ] Yeah. Guess what? What? He says we’re gonna to be together full-time. Great. Great. And anna? Yeah. That’s okay.
[ Laughs ] Oh, it’s the most perfect present. Thank you so much. Ah! What inspired you to do that? Well, you lost all that stuff in the fire. In fact, you were more upset about losing those pictures than you were about losing the house. I know. You can replace the house. Eh, I called in a few favors. I got everyone to go back through phones, albums, computers, anything — go back as far as you like and then go back further.
[ Laughs ] Ah, you are brilliant. When you’re right, you’re right.
[ Laughs ] This means the world to me. And you mean the world to me. I’m so glad that you like it. I love it. I’m probably gonna look at it, like, a couple of thousand times tonight [Laughs] And maybe some more in the morning.
[ Laughs ]
On the next “General Hospital” —
