Carly: [ Sighs ] You’re a good mother, carly.

[ Both laugh ] Where do you think I learned it from? Aww. Thank you.

[ Knock on door ] We’re closed!

[ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ] Felicia: I know it wasn’t right. And I definitely crossed a line. You didn’t just cross it. You ran over it and torched it behind you. H-how could you do this? I’ve been noticing your reactions to certain situations, and I couldn’t shake the feeling that something was off. I-I mean, literally, how? I never gave you a dna sample. No, you didn’t have to. I took a few strands of your hair from the hairbrush the stylist used on you at home & heart. Um, that is such a violation. How could you do that? Well, it looks like deception runs in the family. Yes, I realize they’re out of season. It’s just very, very important that you find them. Oh, um, because a friend of mine passed away and those were her favorite flowers and it would just mean everything to me if you could find them. Okay. Yes. I appreciate it. Thank you so much for trying. I’m really not trying to be difficult, you know. I just — I want to show proper respect. Well, you’ve got mine. The product development team has been seeing amazing results with the new face cream. I mean, it’s incredible. These numbers are very exciting. Good, good. It’s okay if you’re a bit distracted today. I know this is a hard time for you, losing bobbie so soon after luke. Yet more proof that life can change in the blink of an eye. You know, why don’t we do this another time? We can reschedule. No need.

[ Sighs ] Oh, I’m so sorry about bobbie. We are never ready to lose the people we love. Thank you. Do you need anything? Or can I do anything? No. I’m just glad you’re here.

[ Door opens ] I’ll, uh, take it from here. I appreciate you coming in here to ask me questions, but you know I don’t talk to cops. Well… don’t worry about that right now. We’re doing this off the record?

[ Handcuffs clatter ] This isn’t about the assault on cyrus. Bobbie spencer died. I know this is a difficult time for you and you probably want to be alone. But I heard about your mom. I’m really sorry for your loss. Thank you. But, um, we are closed, you know. Yeah, I-I don’t — I don’t want to eat. I don’t know. I just wanted to be here, you know, feel closer to bobbie. I don’t want to intrude, but if there’s anything I can do for you or your family, please don’t hesitate to ask. I loved your mom. I’m gonna go. Elizabeth, come. Do you want to come in and have a cup of coffee? I’d love that. He was supposed to be here with lucy. You invited lucy and martin to our business lunch? You must be a glutton for punishment. I got to take care of something. Just ask him to join us. So… where’s your worse half? Say what?

[ Chuckles ] Lucy’s assistant said she was gonna have a lunch date with you, and yet here you are all by yourself. I know lucy didn’t blow you off for work because she’s not at the office. Where is she? Ms. Quartermaine, at the risk of sounding indelicate, you are aware that bobbie spencer passed away? Yes, I am. She was my sister-in-law. Well, then it shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for you to comprehend why lucy’s not exactly in the mood for a lunch date. Lucy and bobbie had a feud for decades. Yeah. It is true they had a complicated relationship, but the fact is that bobbie’s death has hit lucy very hard. As a matter of fact, if you must know, she and scott are together right now. They’re planning something for bobbie’s memorial service.

[ Laughs ] What? Those two together? Oh, nothing good’s gonna come of that. I would do everything in my power to honor bobbie, shrubbery — that’s not exactly my expertise.

[ Chuckles ] I know. I know. And I’m not a florist. I just know that the floral arrangement at bobbie’s visitation needs to be big and epic and — and beautiful to honor her life. And I’m just so afraid. You know, her favorite flowers are not in season. What if they cannot find them? Oh, you will. I’ve seen you work magic before, and I wouldn’t want to bet against you, but I — I do admire you for doing this because you and bobbie weren’t exactly copacetic. No. You’re right. We definitely had our issues. Yes, I would say so. You were willing to get in trouble with cassadine goons ’cause you thought that bobbie wasn’t doing the nurses’ ball the way you wanted it done. Well, no, it’s just I thought I could do it better, you know? I thought I could raise more money, and it’s — it’s just — bobbie and i did fight a lot, but somehow I have this feeling that deep down, there was this mutual respect.

[ Voice breaking ] And now I’ve run out of time. You know, I’m not gonna — I’m not gonna be able to make it right with bobbie, and I will regret that for the rest of my life. I feel the same way you do. Thanks for telling me about bobbie. And that’s all you have to say? Until my attorney is present. Come on, sonny. You and bobbie were friends for decades. This has got to hurt. I wasn’t expecting it. Well, I’d heard, and I didn’t want to not tell you.. what with everything going on with nina. Look, I just want you to know I’m here for you, okay? Really? Yeah, really. What, you don’t believe me? You had me arrested. Well, you punched someone. What am I gonna do? Look, sometimes I’m a cop, but I’m your son 24/7, okay? And what I’m seeing right now as your son kind of scares the hell out of me. But I’m not going to apologize for looking out for my husband. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for mac or my family. And I just had to know if my suspicions were correct. I get it, felicia. You know, you wanted mac to know the truth. I mean, I can’t fault you for that, but mac’s not the only person involved here. Maxie, I just wanted to — oh, am i interrupting? Sasha, um, I don’t mean to be rude, but we’re in the middle of something sensitive. No, maxie, it’s — it’s okay. Sasha and I have actually already talked about felicia questioning the dna results. You two discussed this before? Don’t blame cody. I actually brought it up. After what your mom said on christmas eve, I just sort of mentioned it without thinking. I figured it didn’t matter because we all know the truth. Well, felicia actually just ran another dna test to find out if I was mac’s son. Oh. Oh, wow. Okay. That’s what’s going on here. Well, if you ran your own test, then you know for sure that cody wasn’t lying. Felicia: I do. I really thought there was something else going on here, but I guess my instincts were wrong this time. Cody is not mac’s son.

This is how it feels to du

more with less asthma… of course cody isn’t mac’s son, and I can’t believe you thought he was, even after the first dna test. I hope you can forgive me. Yeah, yeah, I — there’s just one thing I don’t understand. I mean, no one ever had to know about this, felicia, if you’d just kept quiet. So, why’d you tell me? Because it’s the right thing to do. You are important to my family, and that means a lot to me. I don’t want there to be secrets between us, cody. I can admit when I’ve done something wrong, and I don’t repeat my mistakes. Well [Chuckles] Not often. I appreciate that, felicia. I know you telling me that couldn’t have been easy for you. So we’re — we’re good. You know what? Change of plans. I am gonna take the afternoon off and spend some time with my mom. I think we could both use it. I would love that. Great. Let’s get out of here. I’ll call you to reschedule. Okay. What the hell just happened? So, I can, um… I can make you a blt, or I think we have some pastries — please, carly, stop. You don’t need to take care of me. You’re going through a lot right now.

[ Sighs ] I know we’ve never been close. It’s probably easier that way. But if you need to talk or just cry, I’m here for you. Thank you. I appreciate that. I really do.

[ Sighs heavily ] I think I could use one of those pastries. Yeah. What? Damn it! You don’t have to worry about me. Yeah. Alright. Well, I disagree. You’re looking pretty rough. And maybe you’ve just hit your breaking point with everything that’s going on. I’m fine. You’re not fine. No, you’re not. ‘Cause if you were, you wouldn’t have beat up someone for no reason, not even cyrus renault. I appreciate your concern, but we both know you can’t separate being a cop from being my son. I don’t expect you to.

[ Door opens ] Detective, may I have a moment alone with my client? Absolutely. I’ll be out there if you need me.

[ Police radio chatter ]

[ Door closes ] The arrest report said second-degree assault. I’m just going to assume it was self-defense? No. He never raised a hand to me. How you holding up? I’m okay. I mean, I’m not. I just miss her so much already. I know.

[ Sighs ] Losing bobbie was just so unexpected. Yeah, well, thankfully, we have each other to lean on. Yes, we do. How’s, um, carly? Is she here? I’d like to offer my condolences. She’s, uh, at — at kelly’S. She just needed some time alone. We’re all still pretty much in shock, you know? Mom’s devastated. Of course she is. Ohh. My heart breaks for her. I’m gonna go check on avery and donna, see if they need anything. It’s good to see you. Why didn’t you call last night? I would have come over. Well, you’re here now. I’m so sorry. I loved her, too. Only daisy cottage cheese will doI knew something was off when felicia showed up at home & heart for no reason. I mean, even maxie was suspicious. Uh-huh. And the way felicia was watching you, it — there was just something about it that made me curious. So I followed her, and I saw her taking hair out of the hairbrush that they’d been using on you. So I figured she was gonna run another paternity test on you and mac. Wow. Uh, the pcpd could use a detective as good as you. Well, I actually didn’t know that I was right until I saw felicia telling a messenger to take an envelope to the lab. Fortunately, I was able to swap out the hair sample. With whose hair? Mine. Right. Okay. So I guess you knew that the results would come back negative. Or I was about to get the biggest surprise of my life. Well, sasha, look, ap I preciate you going through all that trouble for me, but you really shouldn’t have done it. Why not? I-I thought you were dead set against the truth of you being mac’s son coming out. Yeah. No, I am. And you want to know why? It’s ’cause I committed a crime, sasha. And you just implicated yourself in it. You know, ms. Quartermaine, the thought occurs — I should not have to abide your continually snide comments about the woman I love. Do not tie yourself into a knot defending lucy coe. She has chosen to take solace… from scott baldwin. I mean it. Just because you two don’t get along doesn’t mean you need to grab every single opportunity to tear her down, especially when you both should be grieving. Tell me — has lucy chosen to share her feelings about bobbie’s passing with you? That doesn’t mean anything. She’s obviously processing an unexpected loss. Or… she doesn’t want you to see her real self. She won’t let you in. Because if you knew the real sordid story about what lucy did to bobbie, you’d run for the hills. But there is one person who knows lucy coe, warts and all, and through every despicable act has stood by her. That’s scott baldwin. Well, I keep, uh, reliving that horrible, horrible, horrible bet I made with damien smith. You know, it not only hurt bobbie, but it hurt tony, too. Poor, sweet tony. And I deserved all the anger

[Voice breaking] And all the recrimination. I deserved that. You know, I just had no respect for their marriage. And if I could take that back, I sure as heck would. I would. What a pair we were. Yeah. Well, you know, um, I’m — I’m really not — I don’t want to speak ill of the dead, but, you know, bobbie — she was no saint all the time, you know? I mean, people forget. Not always. No, yeah.

[ Scoffs ] Lucy? She would be the first one to admit that. And when she brought her brother to this town, my life definitely changed. Well, you know, I really don’t — I don’t want to judge her because you know I live my life in the gray area, morally speaking. I can’t seem to help it. But bobbie made mistakes, too. But that’s the difference. You know, somehow people forgave her and she rose above it and they looked up to her. And I just — I don’t think that’s fair. Why didn’t I ever get that? Maybe if you were a nurse, you would have been forgiven. What did I just say?

[ Voice breaking ] Listen to me. If — if I tell you something right now, do you swear it’ll never leave this table? You swear? I promise. No, I appreciate all of the information. Abs– absolutely, yes. Please call me if anything changes. Thank you. It is your lucky day, despite being in custody. Cyrus renault is in guarded but stable condition. So he’s gonna make a full recovery? Presumably. Now, I can’t make any promises, but given cyrus’s history of violence and the fact that he was recently incarcerated, I should be able to get you bail. Thank you. You pay me because I’m the best. I’ll go start the paperwork. Once you’re released, we should talk about next steps regarding nina. Do you want me to start divorce proceedings? This stupid sink! I can’t believe this. I mean, it picks today of all days to do this again? Are you kidding me? What’s the problem? It’s — [ Sighs ] It’s the sink. It keeps backing up. And no matter what I do, I can’t fix it. And it’s just infuriating. Still have a wrench back here? Yeah. I…

[ Door opens ]

[ Metal rattling ]

[ Door closes ] By the way, it’s not the sink. It’s the pipes.

[ Wrench clanging ]

[ Sink gurgling ] What the hell? How did you do that? I used to work here, remember? This sink was always a problem. It used to drive your mother crazy. I’m sorry.

[ Breathes deeply ] I know to you it seems like something small, but it’s just not. It’s — it’s big. It’s big because all I want is to run kelly’s so smoothly and make my mom proud and not let her down. You won’T. Y-you couldn’T. You were everything to your mom. You still are. Thank you. How are the kids? They’re fine. Amelia is in the nursery at the main house, and wiley’s at school. Did you tell him? No, no, not without you there. I think that that’s something we should do together. I agree.

[ Sighs ] Look, willow, um, I’ve — I hated being away from you last night. I mean, I tossed and turned for hours. I missed you being next to me. I… I know — I know I messed up, and I messed up bad, but, look, I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make things right, okay? I wish it was that simple. I really do. But this has me looking at our entire relationship with new eyes. You really hurt me, michael.

[Coughing] I was thisself an accessory after the fact. Why would you put yourself in the middle of my mess? You just made yourselfan accessory after the fact. Why would you put yourself in the middle of my mess? Seemed like a minor risk after what you did for me. Sasha, the last thing I want to do is put you in a bad position. You didn’T. It was my call. I knew exactly what I was doing, and I never hesitated for a second. Alright, well, thank you. I really do appreciate it. But next time, you think maybe you could give me a heads-up? I was this close to confessing everything to felicia. I admit that felicia surprised me. She had no reason to admit what she did. She must really care about you, cody. Yeah. Or her family does. I’ve grown really attached to all of them — you know, to james, maxie… mac. And I’m lying to all of them. I hate it. I know you do. Felicia had the guts to tell the truth. I still don’T. It’s more complicated for you than for felicia. She wouldn’t face any legal consequences by telling the truth. Why — why did I let baldwin talk me into that stupid wsb lawsuit? It’s ’cause I saw the possibility of a big payday. It ended up costing me a family. I didn’t mean to hurt you, okay? Just the opposite. I was trying to make sure you didn’t get hurt. Okay, I understand why you did it, but I’m not okay with you lying to me, even if it is a lie of omission. I know, and I’m sorry. I’m just — I know you are. And this is the worst possible time for this to happen. Your grandmother just died. That’s where your focus is, where it should be. But even though I am going to be here to support your family during this difficult time… you need space. Yes. But I’m — I’m gonna bring the kids over after I get off work, so I’ll — I’ll see you then. Okay.

[ Sighs heavily ]

[ Exhales sharply ] So, how much of that did you hear? Enough to know you messed up bad. What’d you do?

[ Sighs ] I, uh… I found out that nina reported mom and drew to the sec, and I kept it from everyone. Right now I just want to get out of here. My family just suffered a big loss. Bobbie just passed away. Yes, yes. I — I heard about that.

[ Sighs ] All of my condolences. But, sonny, we’ve got to discuss the — the nina of it all sooner rather than later. I understand, diane! But she’s not a priority right now. My children just lost their grandmother, and carly just lost her mother. I got it. I got it. And — [ Stammers ] I got it. I’m gonna go see about getting you released. Okay.

[ Door opens ]

[ Police radio chatter ]

[ Door closes ] Carly: You know, it’s funny. I always knew that you worked with my mom at gh, but I just forgot that you used to work here. Thank you. Yeah. It was so long ago. I’ve known your mom for as long as I’ve been in port charles. You know, she was there for me in one of the darkest moments of my life. I honestly don’t know if I would have been able to get through it if it hadn’t been for her. She understood exactly what I was going through, and I desperately needed that. She was so steady and gentle, so compassionate. Your mom and this place became a kind of refuge for me ’cause I was safe here. And I owe her so much for that. I think that’s why I just — I just wanted to be here right now. ‘Cause when everything in my life was falling apart, I knew that I could always count on bobbie. And I just wanted to feel that security again.

[ Sighs ]

When moderate

to severe ulcerative colitis

takes you off course.

Put it in check with rinvoq,

a once-daily pill. When I wanted to see results fast, rinvoq delivered rapid symptom relief and helped leave bathroom urgency behind. You know, I think being a nurse was the perfect job for my mom. No one was better at taking care of people. Yeah. She showed me how to treat others. And I’ve always tried to put that into practice at gh. You know, pay it forward for her. Thank you. Carly… your mom may be gone, but she left an incredible legacy. And that’s how she’s gonna live on. And not just in the hearts of her family, but in everyone who strives to bring a little compassion and kindness back into this world. Thank you for talking to me about my mom because it’s exactly what I needed. And thank you for being my friend and for staying. It’s what my mom would have done. Yeah. Thank you.

[ Exhaling heavily ] I’m glad we decided to come here today. Me too. Take good care of your mama, sweet girl. I sure miss her. And you. Why make a deal with nina? Because when I went to go tell dad the truth, I couldn’t go through with it because he was so happy and so in love. If he were to find out that nina turned drew and mom in to the sec, it would have broke his heart, okay? The same thing with willow. I mean, every single time willow let nina in, she disappointed her, or worse. Okay? I thought I was protecting my family from nina. At our mother’s expense. That’s easy for you to say, josslyn, because you’re not in my position. Do I regret lying to mom? Yes, I do. But I didn’t have any good choice here. Telling the truth would have been a good one. Have you ever lied to protect somebody that you love? You are a free man. Cyrus renault being a convicted felon worked in our favor, and I was able to secure your bail. So go home. Deal with what you need to deal with. And then call me. And we will circle back to our previous conversation and discuss next steps. Yes? Okay. Thank you. Of course.

[ Door closes ] I just want you to know that I heard everything you said before and I appreciate it. I understand your reluctance, why you didn’t want to talk to me. But I hope you also know that I didn’t want to arrest you. You’re doing your job. You’re a cop. I-I want you to know that, you know, you’re also my son and — and I love you. I love you, too. And, you know, you want to talk… I’m literally down the hall. You can count on it.

[ Door closes ] I can’t believe I never realized I was jealous of bobbie. That’s why she always got under my skin. She was able to break out from her past and redeem her reputation, and people looked up to her for that. And I resented her for that. I can see that. Bobbie had what I wanted. Bobbie had everybody’s respect. And bobbie had the admiration that I craved. You know, what’s funny is, in the end, maybe bobbie and I weren’t that different after all.

[ Voice breaking ] And if i could have just gotten over all that jealousy and my pettiness, maybe we would have ended up being friends. Well, if — if she was here and you — you told her that — oh.

[ Chuckles ] She’d probably laugh right in my face.

[ Sighs ] I don’t think so. I think you could have been friends. Bobbie — she could hold a grudge.

[ Chuckles ] But she was also very forgiving. She forgave me time and time and time again. She did not deserve all the things that I did to her. I feel the same way.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Sniffles ] Here.

[ Laughs ] Lucy coe is always just one step away from her next misdeed. And for as long as I can remember, scott baldwin has always been her go-to guy. You want to be collateral damage? Be my guest. Just don’t ever say I didn’t warn you. What was that about? Or do I even want to know? Lucy and scott are trying to put one over on me, but they clearly have forgotten who I am because, you cross me, and I destroy you. Known as a loving parent. Known for lessons that matter. Known for lessons that matter. Known for being a free spirit. No one wants to be kn carly: I’m sorry. My gosh, it’s — you know, how are you? Luke was your big brother. Well, I’m a little wobbly. But just like when aunt ruby died, we will get through this together. That’s right.

[ Breathing heavily ] Josslyn: I don’t agree with your decision, but now’s not the time to be fighting with you. I can’t be mad at you now that grandma’s gone. I need you, michael. The most important thing right now is that our family sticks together. We’ll get each other through this, okay? Please look after your father. Without breaking attorney-client privilege, I — no, I — I get it. You are in this position now because there are people in your life that you care about who don’t want to hurt. You’re right. I guess I’m not used to people sticking their necks out for me like you did. Well, you are just gonna have to face the fact that you’re not all alone in the world anymore. I’ve got a partner in crime now. I miss bobbie so much, mom. At least we know she’s with B.J. Now. It’s a small comfort, but it helps. I agree. I wasn’t ready to lose her yet.

[ Voice breaking ] It hurts so much.

[ Voice breaking ] I know. I know, honey. But at least we have memories of her. And that gets us through. And we have each other. That makes it hurt a little bit less. I don’t know when he and lucy concocted this scheme, but clearly they are exploiting what they perceive is my loneliness. How dare they use you like this? After all those nasty things that lucy said to you about luke. I can’t believe that she would try to use your grief to her advantage. Anything lucy does is believable. But I am going to use their faults against them, and they won’t see it coming. In fact… they’re gonna dig their own graves. Good. Make them pay for it.

[ Chuckles ] I do know how much you miss luke. I just hope that dealing with this doesn’t distract you from dealing with those feelings. What are we working on? Oh, no, no, no. I forgot to order the forget-me-nots. Lucy, I — I don’t think bobbie would care about the forget-me-nots. No, that’s not the point. The point is, it’s symbolic. Okay. [ Inhales deeply ] I-I got to stop. We got to honor bobbie properly, and then we got to get back to doing what we do best. What does that mean? It means marrying you off to tracy quartermaine and bringing her down.

[ Sighs ] Ta.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighing ] Oh, mom. How am I gonna do this alone?

[ Breathes deeply ]

[ Sighs ]
