THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Lois: Oh. Brookie? Hello?
Brook Lynn: Hey, Ma, sorry. I’m just sending this one… last… text. There. Okay.
Lois: What was that about?
Brook Lynn: I am about to sign a very important client.
Lois: [ Gasps ] Congratulations!
Brook Lynn: Okay, let me reiterate, Ma — I’m about to. It hasn’t happened yet.
Lois: Yeah, but you will.
Brook Lynn: Honestly, I don’t think I’ll be able to breathe easy until I sign these contracts.
Lois: Oh, oh, Brookie. I’m so proud of you.
Brook Lynn: Thanks, Ma.
Lois: Can I ask you a question?
Brook Lynn: Sure. And you can ask me another one.
Lois: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, okay. Um… are you happy being back in the music business?
Brook Lynn: Yes, of course. I should have never left.
Lois: Mm. Well… not everybody agrees.
[ Scoffs ]
[ Both grunt ]
Mac: How have you been?
Kevin: Good, good.
Mac: Glad to have you back in Port Charles.
Kevin: It’s good to be back. I understand you had your hands full as acting police commissioner.
Mac: Yeah. It’s, uh — [ Chuckles ] It’s been a lot. There was one case — or should I say one perp in particular — that, um, really got to me.
Sam: Hi, Cody.
Sam: Dante isn’t here right now.
Cody: No, I’m — I’m actually here to see you.
Sam: Oh, well, in that case, come on in.
Cody: All right.
Sam: What a nice surprise.
Cody: Well, get ready to be even more surprised.
Sam: Oh, no. Why? What’s going on?
Cody: No. Well, look, for the first time, I’m actually not here to ask you for a favor. I’m just here to say thank you.
And again and again… and again.
What are you doing here? I thought all hard-working, high-level executives took lunch at their desks.
Well, actually, it was a working lunch. We were discussing what a pain in the rear new shareholder we have.
You mean your boss?
[ Chuckles ] Yes. Obtained only through blackmail and a hostile takeover. So, what is it you want?
Maxie: What Lucy is trying to say is, what can we do for you?
Lucy: I don’t have to remind you that I own 51% of this company, and as such, I expect to be informed of all major decisions before they happen.
Changing the Face of Deception.
[ Exhales deeply ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Knock on door ]
Dante: Hey, Sasha.
Sasha: Are you here on official business?
Dante: Uh, yes and no.
Sasha: Okay, um… do you want to come in?
Dante: Sure. Thanks.
Sasha: Am I in trouble?
Dex: With Spinelli’s help, I was able to track Mason’s car to the side of a cliff where he was getting ready to throw Ava over the edge.
Sonny: Son of a bitch.
Dex: Then we exchanged gunfire. He was blinded by my headlights, so I was able to get the jump on him. Ava managed to escape during the fighting, but he got the advantage and was about to push me over the edge when Dante showed up and put two bullets in his back.
Sonny: And now Dante is on forced administrative leave for saving your life. You did good.
Dex: Thanks, boss. But stopping Mason doesn’t solve the problem. What’s the next step?
Sonny: Well, I didn’t cut my honeymoon short for nothing. We need to stop the man that Mason works for.
Cyrus: Dr. Robinson. It’s good to see you.
Sonny: And it was Austin who brought the fabricated Pikeman information that we, you know, planted with Betty to someone at Pentonville.
Dex: Right, where Cyrus was an inmate at the time. So that’s who you think Austin and Mason have been working for?
Sonny: I have no doubt.
Dex: Then Cyrus is the one who leaked to the feds about your deal with Pikeman.
Sonny: You know what? He’s been trying to remove me before he was released. He’s hated me always. But I tell you what — he made a big mistake by abducting Ava.
Dex: You want me to go pay Austin a visit?
Sonny: Not yet, ’cause I want to make sure that all my allies stay loyal.
[ Knock on door ]
Dex: I got it.
Sonny: [ Grunts ] Speak of the devil.
Portia: What are you doing here?
Cyrus: I’m here to see you, Dr. Robinson.
Portia: I heard about your early release. An abomination of justice, if you ask me… after everything that you’ve done.
Cyrus: I’m sorry you feel that way.
Portia: Let me just make one thing clear to you. I can’t stop you from entering the hospital, but one thing’s for damn sure is I can stop you from approaching me or anyone in my family.
Cyrus: You have nothing to fear from me.
Portia: I’m going to get a restraining order. I’m going to get a restraining order to keep you away from me and my daughter. What, you think that I’m just going to forget? I’m going to forget that you held us hostage, that you pointed a gun to my daughter. I think a judge will agree with me. That’s a pretty damn good case for me to get a restraining order against you.
Cyrus: Dr. Robinson, that is all in my past. God has cleansed me of those sins, and the justice system has agreed and forgiven me, and I’m here now just to ask forgiveness of you.
Portia: This is redemption? Is — is that what this is? Because the fact that you’re approaching me at my place of work is proof that I need a restraining order.
Cyrus: You have my deepest regrets for my past actions. I seek you out now only to apologize.
Brook Lynn: The only person I know who doesn’t think I should be in the music business is Granny. That’s not exactly news. She has mentioned on multiple occasions how she thinks I should be in a more prestigious business because after all, according to her, I am a Quartermaine.
Lois: You’re also a Cerullo. Don’t you forget that.
Brook Lynn: Since when does Granny’s opinion hold any weight with you?
Lois: It doesn’t.
Brook Lynn: So then what’s your point?
Lois: Okay, my point is… [ Exhales sharply ] …You might want to care a little more about what your Granny thinks… …’cause she’s about to give you Deception.
Brook Lynn: [ Coughs ]
Kevin: So who’s this perp you’re telling me about?
Mac: Wait a minute. You haven’t told me about your adventure with Laura in Europe.
Kevin: Ahh, evading my question.
Mac: You just got back. I want to know all about it.
Kevin: You know, when someone evades the question, it usually means it’s important to them.
Mac: [ Chuckles ] Have I ever told you how I hate it when you try to shrink me?
Kevin: Oh, yeah. But I also know you very well. And if you don’t want to talk about it, that’s fine. I’m just saying, if you do, I’ll listen.
Mac: How much have I told you about Cody Bell?
Cody: This is for you.
Sam: Um, wait, my birthday isn’t until May.
Cody: No, I know, it’s just, uh — it’s just something to show how grateful I am for you helping Sasha and me.
Sam: Oh, thank you, Cody. You didn’t have to do this.
Cody: Well, I know, but I couldn’t have gotten Sasha out of Ferncliff without your help. I mean, you had me committed, you had a getaway car waiting for us, you arranged for the cabin for us to stay in. Yeah, it’s just a — it’s just a little present to say thank you.
Sam: Well, I was happy to help. I just wish I would have listened to you earlier so then we could have helped her sooner, and for that, I — I am very sorry.
Cody: No, Sam, you have nothing to be sorry about. You took a leap of faith when you had plenty of reasons not to. And, I mean, you believed in me, and once you did, you went above and beyond to help Sasha.
Sam: You have been a really good friend to her, Cody. Your concern for her was sincere. And your determination to help her was admirable.
Cody: Yeah. I guess Sasha doesn’t need my help anymore.
Sasha: I don’t know what I could be in trouble over. I was cleared of all the charges involving my breakout of Ferncliff, and my lawyers told me that Cody wasn’t going to press any charges against me for stabbing him.
Dante: Yeah, no, no. I’m sorry, Sasha. You’re not facing any charges. I’m not here — I’m not here on official police business.
Sasha: Okay. Was there something else I did wrong, then?
Dante: No, no, no, no. It’s — it’s nothing you did. It’s, uh… it’s what you’re about to do.
Lucy: You made it very clear — you are part owner. But you know what isn’t clear is one — why would you care if Blaze is the new Face of Deception? Two — what you got against poor Blaze? And three — hmm, I can’t think of a three. Oh, I know. Why is it any of your business? It’s not, nada, none, zilch.
Maxie: Okay, I think what Lucy is wanting to say is Blaze is a perfect fit for us. She’s already a major recording artist. She’s clearly on the brink of super-stardom. She’s got millions of followers on social media, and…
Lucy: Thank you. That’s exactly what I would be saying. Go ahead.
Maxie: Younger women idolize her. Older women respect her. She’s the perfect person to uplift Deception and market us through major demographics.
Tracy: Bravo. You should be in sales. I might even have bought it if I cared. I don’t care. What I care about is that my 51% says Sasha Gilmore remains the Face of Deception.
Dante: From your police reports and your medical records the hell you went through at Ferncliff with that Dr. Montague. I am so sorry you went through all that.
Sasha: Thank you, Dante.
Dante: I know — I know it’s not the same, but — but I — I — I went through something about three years ago, and when my hell ended, I wanted to run away from everyone and everything I ever knew. I didn’t want to be associated with my former life, I think because I felt like I had been… irreparably changed, you know? And I love my life, my friends and my family, but at that point of time, I wanted nothing to do with any of them. I wanted to run as far as I could and never come back. I think trauma does that to us. I know it did it to me. I think it’s doing it to you. And I think running just makes things worse.
Sam: Oh, wow. Cody, what is this?
Cody: It’s a softball, Sam.
Sam: No, it’s a — it’s signed uh, by, actually — the US women’s softball team. That is so sweet. Thank you so much. You didn’t have to do this.
Cody: Yeah, well, you didn’t have to help me and Sasha, but you did.
Sam: Thank you.
Cody: Yeah, uh, Dante’s always talking about what a clutch softball player you are, so I thought, I don’t know, you might appreciate it.
Sam: I do, I do. I think this is awesome. I think I’m going to put it in the family room so we can all share it.
Cody: I love how you guys say that — the family room. I bet you and Dante and the kids all get together on the weekend and watch movies in there.
Sam: [ Chuckles ] You’re right, we do. On Sundays, it’s either a movie or sports or a board game. We make it a point to spend time together, and then we talk about our week or, I don’t know, we just hang out.
Cody: I used to wonder what that would be like. You know, be a part of a family.
Sam: What do you mean — you don’t wonder anymore?
Cody: No, I had my chance. I…threw it away.
Portia: I don’t want your apology. It is so meaningless. Your remorse, sir, is a sham. You should be in prison for the rest of your life. [ Stammers ] And the fact that you are free standing in front of me right now is — it’s a travesty. It’s insane.
Cyrus: You have every right to your anger, Doctor.
Portia: Don’t patronize me.
Cyrus: It breaks my heart that you are burdened with this resentment. If I could, I would — I would take it from you.
Portia: Now you’re playing games with me. There’s no point in trying to convince me. I know you’re not a changed man. The people that released you back into society, yes, they may have believed the reformed act, but me? I don’t buy it. And I never will.
Cyrus: I understand, but if you believe nothing else about me, believe this — I am extremely grateful to those who stopped me that night. My sister, Laura, and the very resourceful Jordan Ashford, and my gratitude also extends to your husband, Curtis.
Sonny: Thanks for coming to see me.
Selina: I’m always pleased to receive an invitation to meet with you, Mr. Corinthos.
Sonny: You know Dex Heller, right?
Selina: I do. Hello.
Dex: Ms. Wu.
Selina: Congratulations to you and Nina. I heard you got married on your island. How was it?
Sonny: It was great. It was fantastic. You know, can I clear something up with you? How did you allow my cousin Gladys to run up such a massive gambling debt? And you didn’t even have the courtesy to inform me.
Brook Lynn: Did I hear you correctly? Tracy’s giving me Deception?
Lois: Was I mumbling?
Brook Lynn: What would give you that idea?
Lois: Tracy herself gave me that idea. She says she wants you to be able to provide for yourself if the music business doesn’t work out. She also told me that Lucy and Maxie weren’t using you to your fullest potential. Okay, that I’m going to agree with her on because, Brook Lynn, you have amazing potential, and if they were taking advantage of you, that’s not okay.
Brook Lynn: Ma, stop, okay? Tracy blackmailed me and — and took the company from them. You’re saying she did that for me?
Lois: According to Tracy, that’s the truth. She intends to hand over her controlling interest in Deception to you.
Brook Lynn: Come on, Ma, you believe her?
[ Exhales deeply ]
Mac: Cody got himself into trouble saving Sasha Gilmore. He put his neck on the line to save her. And what he did not only impressed me, but brought back memories of how I went to similar lengths trying to save Cody’s mother, Dominique.
Kevin: Weren’t you involved with Dominique before she was involved with Scott Baldwin?
Scott: Did I just hear my name mentioned?
Lucy: Sasha has been through too much. She has been through the most horrible, ugly ordeal because of that disgusting Gladys. So the worst thing to do for Sasha is throw her back into the spotlight where she was publicly skewered.
Tracy: I’m fully aware of what Sasha has been through.
Lucy: Okay, then you’re aware she stabbed Cody Bell at the Metro Court pool. She stabbed someone in public. I cannot have someone that freaks out and actually tries to kill somebody. Deception needs a spokesperson that has nothing to do with anything like that.
Tracy: And what about what Sasha needs? She was the face that relaunched this company. Your beloved Deception was shut down for over a decade.
Maxie: Can I say something?
[ Both Tracy and Lucy ] No!
Lucy: Look, I am just trying to think of Sasha.
Tracy: No, you’re not. If you were thinking of Sasha, you would reinstate her contract. Look, I need you to look at the big picture. Look at corporate culture. What kind of message would you be sending if you shut out somebody who’s struggling with addiction? What if this job is the very thing that gets Sasha back on her feet? Would you deny her that?
Lucy: Wow. I don’t know what’s happening here.
Tracy: Well, that’s not surprising.
Maxie: Okay, I’m going to say something whether you two like it or not. I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but, uh, what Tracy is trying to tell us is to have a heart and give Sasha another chance.
Tracy: Exactly, Maxie.
Lucy: This is classic Tracy — do something rotten and horrible, and then when it’s done, claim you did it for altruistic reasons.
Brook Lynn: Okay, she didn’t fall far from the Edward Quartermaine tree, that is for sure. As soon as Tracy got back to Port Charles, she — she zeroed in on Deception like a heat-seeking missile. I mean, she blackmailed me into spying for her, which I agreed to, to my everlasting regret. And then once Tracy had the upper hand, she filed a lawsuit and basically bullied Lucy and poor Maxie into settling.
Lois: She’s a real piece of work, I give you that. But I’m not so sure that this time she’s being 100% selfish.
Brook Lynn: Tracy did all this for Tracy, Ma. Don’t be fooled, okay? Any excuse that she did this for me is a blatant lie.
Lois: I’m not so sure, Brook Lynn.
Scott: Mind if I join you?
Scott, we were actually —
You know, actually, it– it’s been a while since the three of us has done any catching up.
As he was saying, we were right in the middle of catching up, Scott.
Scott: Yeah, but Kevin, you were talking about me.
Scott, we were actually talking about your client, Cody Bell.
Cody: What I did was I found my biological father, and I lied to him about being his son.
Sam: Are we talking about Mac?
Cody: Yes, good guess.
Sam: Gut instinct.
Cody: I guess that’s why you’re a great PI.
Sam: Why did you lie to Mac?
Sasha: You’re right, Dante. Um, we reacted similarly to the things that happened to us, but like you said, the circumstances were not the same. You had a family to come back to. I don’t. Brando is gone… and he’s not coming back, and neither is my baby boy. My family was taken from me, and every bit of me aches for them.
Dante: I — I can’t even imagine, Sasha. I’m — I’m so sorry.
Sasha: [ Exhales sharply ] You know, I — [ Scoffs ] I really tried like hell to carry on. I went on with my day-to-day activities, even though I was still grieving and still in pain. And honestly, I thought I was doing okay.
Dante: Well, for what it’s worth, Cody said you were doing pretty good before Montague started giving you those drugs.
Sasha: Yeah. I thought I was doing all right. But now, I’m not so sure.
Cyrus: Curtis was a hero that night, and I was deeply sorrowed to hear that he’d been injured. And it must be frightening to know that he is no longer capable of protecting you the way he once could.
Portia: I’m going to need you to get the hell away from me. And I swear, if you approach me or anyone, I swear, anyone that I love, I’m calling the cops. I don’t care, I’m going to have you thrown back in prison where you belong.
[ Door slams ]
Cyrus: Welcome home, Dr. Robinson.
Get away from the door. Go!
Selina: Gladys was, shall we say, an enthusiastic player, one who never turned away, even from the best players. But sadly, she lost more often than she won. But she assured me that she could do good on her debts, and although she was slow with payment, the money always arrived. So I saw no reason to doubt her or to bother you with it.
Sonny: Okay, I’m going to stop you right there because the next thing you say may have long-lasting repercussions. In our business, do you know how to distinguish between allies and enemies?
Selina: Of course I do.
Sonny: Okay — enemies lie to each other. Allies deal in honesty. So before you open your mouth, you need to decide… …which one you want to be.
Scott: You know, you’re lucky that Cody is such a forgiving soul. If it was up to me, I would slap this city with a huge civil lawsuit. Litany of charges. Cody would be singing his way to the bank.
You’d be singing your way to the bank all the way, too, Scott.
Scott: Yes, yes, yes, I would.
Assuming you’d win, how much of those damages would you collect?
Scott: Well, 20%, 30%, but my wallet is already fat enough. However, he has no interest, which seems a little weird.
Why? You said yourself Cody is a forgiving soul.
Scott: Yeah, but a few months ago, he was willing to sue the WSB for all that stuff that went on in Greenland. I just wonder what happened.
Lois: In Tracy’s own twisted way, I think she wants to do this for you. She’s afraid you’re not going to be able to make a living as a music manager, and she wants to make sure that you could support yourself in a way that she deems acceptable.
Brook Lynn: Right. Tracy won’t be happy regardless of what I do.
Lois: I don’t know, Brook Lynn, honestly. I mean, she seems to be really happy for you and Chase. She even brags about being the one that brought the two of you back together in the first place. And, you know, in true Q fashion, she doesn’t want you living on a cop’s salary.
Brook Lynn: Oh, right. So Tracy’s solution for my financial problems is to blackmail her own granddaughter and rob Lucy and Maxie of their dream.
Lucy: Let me try and get this straight. You, Tracy Angelica Quartermaine, you, after deviously stealing our 51% of the company and taking my precious 1% of ELQ, you expect us to believe that you have compassion for Sasha? You want to give her another chance? [ Chuckles ] Wait. What’s in it for you?
Lucy: Mm. Oh, pooh. I’m not buying it.
Tracy: It’s the right thing to do.
Lucy: Okay, it’s — it’s freaky Friday, isn’t it? It’s freaky Friday.
Okay, okay, Lucy.
Lucy: Tracy, if there’s nothing in it for you, why is it so important that Sasha gets her job back?
Tracy: Because we’re all business women here, and we should be lifting each other up, not tearing each other down.
Lucy: What?! You tore us completely down!
Tracy: Apples and oranges.
Selina: My alliance with you, Sonny, is vital to my interests.
Sonny: Then explain to me what happened with my cousin Gladys.
Selina: When Gladys lost, I extended her a line of credit. When the time came to pay, Gladys had lost more and she didn’t have the money to pay. She told me she had access to Sasha Gilmore’s money through a guardianship, but she couldn’t withdraw too much at once. That’s when she sold me her son Brando’s garage at below-market value.
Sonny: I’m surprised. Didn’t it ever occur to you to inform me, your ally, in this situation? If I was the suspicious type… …I would think that maybe you were trying to get information or leverage on me. And if that were the case, you and I would have a big problem.
Cody: I had the DNA test in my hand at G.H., Sam. But instead of telling Mac the truth, I — I lied to him. I mean, hell, he found the test on the floor at the Q stables. I got it out of his hands before he knew what it was, but… that was my second chance to come clean, but instead, I lied again, right to his face.
Sam: But why, Cody?
Cody: I — I don’t know. I — I told myself it was because I was going for the money, but — but really, Sam, I just think — I think Mac’s too good of a guy to be saddled with a son like me.
Sam: No, it’s not too late to tell Mac that you’re his son.
Cody: I have lied repeatedly to his face. Any chance or hope of me earning his trust is gone. Look, Mac’s — Mac’s — Mac’s got a great wife and a happy life. He doesn’t need me as a son.
Sam: I’m assuming Dante knows all this.
Cody: Yeah, he’s — he’s known for a while, and I’m sorry, Sam I should have never asked him to keep a secret like that from you, which is why I’m telling you now. After all that you’ve done for me and Sasha, you deserve to know the truth.
Sam: Does anyone else know that you’re Mac’s son?
Cody: One other person. Sasha knows.
Sasha: Maybe you’re right. Maybe I’m running away. But honestly, can you really blame me for not wanting to live in a place where everywhere I turn is a constant reminder of what I’ve lost or a mistake that I’ve made? Sometimes the pain is just too much.
Dante: To be clear, I don’t blame you for anything, Sasha. You do what’s best for you. I just want you to know that there are people here who love you and can help you heal from the trauma you’ve suffered. Hey, Michael, Willow, Chase, Maxie, Nina. Plus, you got some — some new friends in me and Sam and Cody. We’d all really miss you.
Tracy: From everything that Michael and Brook Lynn have told me, Sasha’s been through hell.
Lucy: Maxie and I are well aware of everything that Sasha has been through. You do not have to remind us.
Tracy: Well, apparently I do. Look at what’s been done to her. She deserves a break. Where is your empathy?
Lucy: Empathy?! Do you even know what that word means?
Tracy: I do. And I demand we give her a break.
Lucy: “Demand.” Demand.
Okay, Tracy, you are right. A lot of terrible things have happened to Sasha because she trusted the wrong people. We know a little something about that, don’t we, Lucy? I love Sasha, and I would hate it if I wasn’t there for her when she needed me.
Tracy: We all agreed.
Lucy: We have not all agreed.
Tracy: Oh. [ Chuckles ]
Well, you know, Sasha’s out of town, gone, so case closed.
Tracy: That’s what phones are for. Pick it up. Call her. Tell her that Deception has decided to reinstate her contract. And do it today.
Selina: I don’t seek leverage over you, Sonny. In retrospect, my actions were ill-advised. And I regret that. I also regret letting Gladys join my poker game. But having done so… I agree with you. I owed it to you, my ally, to apprise you of the situation as it unfolded.
Sonny: I’m glad we’re on the same page.
Selina: You’ve been a good business partner, Sonny, and I want to continue that relationship in the future. How can I make amends?
Sonny: I’m sure you’ve heard Cyrus is once again free.
Selina: I’m aware.
Mac: Cody was arrested after he broke out of Ferncliff and allegedly kidnapped Sasha Gilmore. Now, the charges were dropped, the paperwork filed away. I’m guessing Cody doesn’t want to bring it back out into the light of day, lest Sasha get involved. He’s very protective of her. Or Cody simply developed a conscience. Sorry, Scott. I know that’s not a word you’re familiar with — I got a conscience.
Cyrus: Excuse me, uh, for interrupting, gentlemen, but I’d like to have a word with my attorney, Mr. Baldwin.
Lois: Don’t you for one single minute think I’m sitting here defending Tracy because I don’t agree with anything she’s done on any level.
Brook Lynn: Good. For a second there, I thought hell was freezing over.
Lois: Well, hold on a second, ’cause hell might get a little chilly, because I do believe that Tracy is being sincere when she says she’s going to hand over her controlling interest in Deception to you.
Brook Lynn: Tracy can be as sincere as she wants… because there is no way in hell I will ever accept that company.
Dante: You know, Sasha, whatever decision you make, I wish you nothing but the best. I just didn’t want you leaving town without you knowing how much you’re loved and how much you’ll be missed.
Sasha: Thank you, Dante. Means a lot.
Dante: Hey, um… Brando was family, which makes us family. And if there’s one thing I learned from my mother and my father, it’s that family is everything. Take care. And if you need anything… you let me know.
[ Exhales sharply ]
[ Exhales deeply ]
Sam: It doesn’t surprise me at all that you would trust Sasha with the secret that you are Mac’s son. I mean, you did form a close bond when you broke her out of Ferncliff.
Cody: Yeah, yeah. Not that any of that matters anymore.
Sam: Why doesn’t it matter?
Cody: Uh, Sasha’s leaving Port Charles.
Sam: Since when?
Cody: I stopped by her place yesterday. I found her packing.
Sam: Did you try and talk her out of it?
Cody: Yeah, I tried. I failed. Sasha said that the movers are coming this morning, so… she’s, uh, probably gone already.
Lucy: Okay, what do you think that was all about?
Maxie: I have no clue.
Lucy: All right, but that woman is up to something. Mark my words. She is always up to something, and the only thing she does anything for is to benefit her shady bank account.
What could it be?
Maxie: Look, Lucy, I really have no idea, okay? But I’ve got to be honest — I kind of like what Tracy was saying. It would be nice to work with Sasha again.
Lucy: Yeah, maybe you’re right. You know, she could change her mind and not stay in Austin. After all, you know those fabulous winter coats she has that we love? She can’t wear those in Texas.
Maxie: We’re getting a little ahead of ourselves. What if she doesn’t accept the offer?
Lucy: [ Gasps ] What if she does? What are we going to tell Blaze?
Brook Lynn: I’m committed to my music career. And honestly, I don’t care if Tracy doesn’t have faith that I can succeed because I have faith in myself, and you were always the one who told me that’s all I need.
Lois: That. That is the Cerullo fire.
Brook Lynn: And you know what?
Brook Lynn: Even if I fail, I would rather get a job waiting tables at Kelly’s than let Granny gift me a stolen company. I’m going to go tell Tracy that right now.
Lois: Okay, hold your roll for just a second because as much satisfaction as it would give you to throw that gift right back in her face, I think I have a better way to handle this.
Scott: Oh, hey, Cyrus.
Cyrus: Why don’t we talk over here in private?
Scott: I think you might be a little confused. I’m not on retainer. You paid me a chunk of money to take care of you at the hearing, but that’s it. That’s the end of the story. Case closed.
Cyrus: Oh, no, no, our story isn’t finished yet. You were remarkable at the hearing, and I might have use of your brilliant legal mind again.
So much for Scott’s conscience.
I wish Scott stuck to chasing ambulances and defending Cody. Helping Cyrus Renault get released from Pentonville won’t end well, I’m sure of it.
[ Exhales sharply ]
Sonny: Any updates on our people watching Cyrus?
Dex: He paid a visit to G.H. today. He was spotted talking to Dr. Robinson.
Sonny: Trina’s mother?
Dex: Then he left G.H., went straight to the Metro Court restaurant. I told our people not to take their eyes off of him. They’ll report back with any updates.
Sonny: You know what? Ms. Wu has agreed to, you know, put eyes on Cyrus as well. So I tell you what — with her network and mine, he’s not going to make a move without me knowing. So we’ll have him under 24-hour surveillance. She’s going to notify me as far as who he’s interacting with, his associates, whatever, and if he tries any kind of overture to Selina, she’ll notify me immediately.
Dex: Can we trust her?
Sonny: The only thing I trust is that Selina will serve her own business interests. That’s why I have to keep her close.
On the next “General Hospital” —
