Elizabeth: I'm sorry. I've been working an awful lot of overtime, and this whole back-and-forth thing between us is making me crazy, so I just want to make sure -- did you just ask me to go to Italy with you?

Jason: Yeah. It's -- it's this place where there's five villages in the middle of a national park, sort of on the edge of a cliff. I've never even heard of it. I've never -- I've never been there, and I was thinking that we could see it for the first time together. I have the tickets, so will you go with me?



Lainey: As your doctor, it is my responsibility to help you get better and to be honest with you. I don't mean to upset you, and I'm not trying to control your life, but it is my professional opinion that seeing Johnny Zacchara at this point is a bad idea.

Johnny: Lulu wants to see me. She called me.

Lucky: No, she isn't thinking clearly right now.

Johnny: I'm trying to help. That's it.

Lucky: How many times do you have to hear this? If you really want to help my little sister, then you stay the hell out of her life.



Kate: Okay, so at this point, I give the bouquet to the maid of honor, and then you begin.

Sonny: Should you even need rehearsal, because it seems like you have it down pat, perfect.

Kate: Yeah, we have ravens circling the bell tower. We have funeral flowers for practice and maid of honors dropping like flies. You could humor me.

Minister: That said, which names would you like to use for your vows?

Kate: What do you mean, which names?



Olivia: Falconeri, Olivia. You got it there?

Marty: Yes, here we are.

Olivia: Great.

Marty: Welcome to the Metro Court.

Olivia: Thank you very much. Here is my credit card.

Marty: Thank you, Ms. Falconeri, but we won't need a credit card. Sonny Corinthos will be covering all of your charges.

Olivia: Even the mini-bar?

Marty: We are delighted to have you here with us, Ms. Falconeri. Room 1205.

Olivia: All right, thank you.

Marty: And I will have someone help you with your bags.

Carly: I'm sorry. I couldn't help overhearing that Sonny Corinthos is picking up your tab.

Olivia: Who wants to know?

Carly: His ex, four times.

Olivia: Ha, you get hazard pay for that?

Carly: Well, we're divorced now. I'm Carly Corinthos Jax.

Olivia: Olivia Falconeri.

Carly: I'm trying to remember when Sonny mentioned an Olivia Falconeri.

Olivia: Nice try. You're trying to get me to tell you the connection.



Elizabeth: I don't understand. One minute you don't want to be seen with me, and the next you want to whisk me away to some cliff above the Mediterranean?

Jason: I knew I should have asked you before I bought the tickets, but I didn't want to --

Elizabeth: No, no, wait, wait. I'm not saying no. I just need a little time to process this, because believe me, Jason, if you want to take me to Italy, then we're going.



Lucky: My little sister's a lot sicker than you think.

Johnny: What happened?

Lucky: She started hallucinating. She started having conversations with our mother every day for weeks. That's how sick my little sister is.



Lulu: Johnny risked his life to bring me here. All he has ever done from the start is try to help me.

Lainey: Take a second and consider your life since you met John, and try to see past your anger at me and at Lucky.

Lulu: Well, it's really hard to when you're never listening to me.

Lainey: Can you honestly say that you have a better life with Johnny than you had before you met him?



Carly: So, where are you from?

Olivia: Please, with this accent.

Carly: Bensonhurst.

Olivia: Lived there my whole life. Probably always will.

Carly: You must know Lois Cerullo.

Olivia: Oh, yeah, forever. We're so proud of her and Brookie. Man, they are tearing it up out there in L.A. But they always go and visit Gloria -- that's Lois’s mother -- every time they're in the City. So four times you married Sonny, huh?

Carly: Yeah.

Olivia: You always have that much trouble making up your mind?

Carly: Well, I've made it up for good this time. We're over.

Olivia: Okay. You mentioned two sons and a daughter?

Carly: Yeah, the boys are ours.

Olivia: Nice.

Carly: You guys been in contact this whole time?

Olivia: No, no, no, I haven't seen Sonny or talked to him in almost 20 years. He contacted Ms. Cerullo, wondered how he could reach me, so --

Carly: Hmm, that's strange. He never invited anyone from Bensonhurst to any of our weddings.

Olivia: Well, you know, I think I'm supposed to be some kind of big surprise, you know, for my cousin, do something nice.

Carly: Your cousin?

Olivia: The bride, of course.

Carly: Kate Howard is your cousin?



Kate: Sorry, I'm just a little on edge.

Minister: I've seen worse. I promise you. I just need to know how you'd like to be addressed when you take your vows. Katherine and Michael?

Sonny: No, not Michael.

Minister: Kate and Sonny?

Sonny: What do you think?

Minister: Katherine and Sonny?

Sonny: What do you think?

Kate: Uh, Kate and Sonny.

Sonny: Kate and Sonny. That's good, yeah.

Minister: Okay, and I'll greet the congregation, and if there's anything in particular you'd like me to say or not say, please let me know by tonight. Then we'll have the musical selection. Then I'll lead you through the vows based on the book of common prayers we discussed. And let's see -- we're leaving out the part where the bride is given away, and we're -- we've also agreed to omit the word obey.

Kate: That's correct.

Minister: Shall we give the congregation an opportunity to make comments?

Sonny: You mean, speak now or forever hold your peace type of thing?

Minister: Yes.

Sonny: Right.

Minister: It's sometimes part of the ceremony, sometimes not. It's up to you.

Kate: Oh, I don't know. I think we should leave it in. It's tradition, and after all, who's going to object?



Claudia: So, what is better for a wedding, do you think? I mean, up? Or should I go down?

Ric: Why do you even want to go to the wedding, huh? I mean, you don't know half the people there.

Claudia: You are dying to take me, first of all, and just think about it. Think about it. We're going to walk in together, and everyone's going to go, "oh, my God." They're all going to get really kind of concerned, and that'll be great.

Ric: Okay, look -- no, look. Kate invited me as a show of good faith, because she wants -- I don't know -- she wants me and Sonny to be real brothers or something.

Claudia: Okay, but that's what you want, too, right?

Ric: Okay, so if -- if that's what I want, then why would I bring one of Sonny's former one-night stands to his wedding?

Claudia: To spice it up a bit, right? You like it spicy.

Ric: Time, time, time, time. What's in it for me, Claudia?

Claudia: Do you really want to go to the social event of the year without a date, or were you planning on bringing Miss Harvard law?

Ric: Oh, that's right. I guess, you know, Claire is in the Hamptons.

Claudia: Oh, good, so take me. Take me.

Ric: You're good at that.

Claudia: You have no idea all the things I'm really good at. But this, you know, you could just think of the wedding as, like, a preview.



Carly: Marty, can you get us some champagne? And Curtis, can you take Ms. Falconeri's stuff upstairs?



Minister: If you would join hands, please. The vows traditionally begin with the husband, so you'll repeat after me. I, Sonny, take thee, Kate, to be my wedded wife.

Sonny: I, Sonny, take thee, Kate, to be my lawful wedded wife.

Minister: To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or for worse.

Sonny: To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or for worse.

Minister: For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.

[Sonny laughs]

Sonny: For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.

Minister: To love and to cherish, forsaking all others.

Sonny: To love and to cherish, forsaking all others.

Minister: For as long as we both shall live.

Sonny: For as long as we both shall live.



Nadine: Ow.

Nikolas: What are you doing here?

Nadine: Working.

Nikolas: You're supposed to be back at Wyndemere recuperating right now.

Nadine: I'm better.

Nikolas: So you left me a note?

Nadine: That was rude, I know. I'm sorry, especially since you were so wonderful to me, but I know if I told you face-to-face, you would have convinced me to stay longer, and I really can't use up my sick days when I'm not actually sick.

Nikolas: Nadine, I'm sorry. You were in a fire. You had smoke inhalation. A day or two more of rest -- it couldn't hurt.

Nadine: Well, it's not like I was getting much rest wondering whether or not you were going to come into my bedroom in the middle of the night.



Elizabeth: Do you remember that globe I bought when you were hiding here in the studio? I wanted to go to Italy even then.

Jason: I remember.

Elizabeth: So what changed? You've spent the past two weeks trying to convince me that we shouldn't even see each other.

Jason: I know. Things are just so complicated here, you know, with my job, and being with me is a risk, whether you want to admit it or not. But I just -- I just started thinking about how nice it would be to disappear with you.

Elizabeth: It would be nice.

Jason: Nobody's going to know where we are. We -- we won't have to hide.

Elizabeth: So when do you want to go?

Jason: Soon. You know, things are okay. All I got to do is go to Sonny's wedding, and as soon as that reception starts, I will leave, and I will meet you at the airport.

Elizabeth: But Sonny's wedding is tomorrow. You want to go to Italy tomorrow?

Jason: Yeah, yeah. Is that okay?

Elizabeth: Yes, yes.



Ric: You know, Sonny needs family at his wedding. If I show up with you, I think it's going to send, well, just not the right message of support to him. Don't you -- don't you think?

Claudia: Well, okay, fine, if you actually want to give up an opportunity to spend the entire evening with me because you think that, you know, your brother might see that as a sign that you are suddenly his real family, then by all means, don't let me stand in your way. Or are you just -- are you just trying to get me to work you harder?

Ric: Is that an option?

Claudia: What if -- what if the only reason I even want to go to this wedding is to upset Kate?

Ric: Oh, thank you.

Claudia: You're welcome. And what if I can't help myself, I can't stop myself from flirting with Sonny, and maybe he'll see me come walking in with you, and who knows what'll happen?

Ric: Yeah, look, I don't want to deliberately ruin my brother's wedding, okay?

Claudia: All right, well, think of it this way.

Ric: You're impossible, you know that? Thank you.

Claudia: You're welcome. What if we go in together, and Sonny completely ignores me, and what if Kate is her usual ice-cold self? I'm going to feel awful. I will be devastated.

Ric: Something tells me you've never been devastated by a man in your life.

Claudia: Okay, well, for the sake of pretend? I don't know. What if it all hits me at once, the trial and the fact that my brother is throwing his life away for Lulu? The wedding? Don't you want to be there to pick up the pieces when I fall apart?



Minister: Those whom God hath brought together, let no man put asunder.

Kate: That goes for women, too.

Minister: By the power vested in me, et cetera, et cetera, I now pronounce you husband and wife. Do you want me to say "you may kiss the bride"?

Sonny: Uh, yeah. I'd like that a lot.

Minister: All right.

Kate: We'll do it.

Sonny: All right.

Minister: Okay, now you face the congregation, and I say, "I present you Sonny and Kate Corinthos," and you walk out.

Kate: Oh, after Maxie gives me the flowers.

Maxie: They're all yours.

Kate: Big finish, big applause.

Sonny: Mm-hmm.

Kate: What if no one applauds?

Sonny: No, everybody's going to applaud. Everybody's going to be happy, because we're happy. We're going to walk out of here with family and friends, and you know what? We're going to start a brand new life.

Maxie: I just hope nobody starts crying or screaming or the ceiling doesn't collapse or something.

Mike: The only thing that matters to me is that Sonny is happy, and to tell you the truth, I never thought I would see him marry anyone with Carly still in the picture.

Maxie: Maybe that's why Carly’s coming to the wedding, to prove to everyone that she's over Sonny.

Mike: Carly's coming to the wedding?

Maxie: She RSVP'd.

Mike: Now I'm worried. Oops, sorry.

[Sonny laughs]

Sonny: No, no, hey, I'll see you.

Mike: I'll see you later.

Kate: Thank you, Maxie.

Sonny: Okay, now.

Kate: Mm-hmm?

Sonny: We just got through the wedding rehearsal.

Kate: Yes.

Sonny: The church didn't catch on fire.

Kate: Yes.

Sonny: How do you feel about that?

Kate: I feel pretty good.

Sonny: You feel good?

Kate: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: And then after the wedding, we're going to vanish to the island, right?

Kate: Mm-hmm, and then straight to Paris and French wine country.

Sonny: Okay, and then -- I tell you what. I'll make a call. We'll get a jet, and we'll skip all this, and we'll go straight to the island for a couple days.

[Sonny laughs]

Kate: What? Nice try.

Sonny: All right, listen to me, all right? I'm going to settle things with the minister, and I'll see you at the dinner.

Kate: Okay. Oh, but wait. Can you come by and pick me up, because I want to change.

Sonny: Okay, I see. You can't wear the actual rehearsal dress to the rehearsal dinner.

Kate: Oh, he's learning. Okay, I'll see you.

Sonny: All right, bye.



Carly: So, I didn't know Kate was Italian on her mother's side.

Olivia: Sonny never asked me to lie about this, because he knows I wouldn’t. I'm proud of who I am, proud of where I come from. I got no time to lie for someone who isn’t.

Carly: Oh, Kate's ashamed of where she comes from. That must be tough for you.

Olivia: Kate Howard, as she calls herself, is really Constanza Louise Falconeri, Connie for short. We all grew up in Bensonhurst, and her dad and my dad are brothers.

Carly: You guys all knew Sonny.

Olivia: Everybody knew Sonny. All the girls were in love with him; even little miss prim and proper Connie.

Carly: So all this went on when you guys were in high school?

Olivia: Yeah, Connie and I went to an all girls' catholic school, Sacred Heart.

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Olivia: Sonny went to the boys' school, and he was, you know, always getting in trouble, always getting suspended, and, you know, finally just dropped out.

Carly: You went out with him, didn't you?

Olivia: Well, it takes one to know one. Yeah, Sonny and I spent some time together, yeah. But it was always -- it was always Connie he wanted, the one he couldn't have.

Carly: Hmm, I bet he had her up on a pedestal and just worshipped her from afar.

Olivia: It wasn't that far. I mean, she did finally deign to go out with him, probably just to spite me, but --

Carly: So, are you married now?

Olivia: No, never have been. Don't miss it, either.

Carly: Don't knock it until you try it.

Olivia: This from the woman who can't do it enough, at least with Sonny.

Carly: You and your cousin are nothing alike.

Olivia: Well, Connie, I mean, she was an only child. That girl was spoiled like you would not believe. You know, her parents did not even want her talking to Sonny Corinthos, but they would sneak away to Coney Island or some little place on 19th Avenue, you know, like no one knew what they were doing. He wanted to marry her even then.

Carly: Man, I could never figure out how Sonny could fall in love with a wasp from Connecticut.

[Olivia laughs]

Olivia: Connecticut. The closest Connie Falconeri ever got to Connecticut was geography class with Sister Loyola, which she aced, because she aced everything. She was the class valedictorian, and she -- she wanted to get out, you know? Not everyone likes Bensonhurst the way that I do.

Kate: So what happened between the two of them?

Olivia: Well, I don't really know all the details. One week they were going out. The next week they weren't, and Sonny got deeper in with Joe Scully. Connie went off to Princeton in the fall.

Carly: And she broke his heart?

Olivia: Well, she had a career to pursue. You know, somebody had to go touring around in all those limos, sipping champagne. So what she did -- she got a full scholarship to Princeton. Room and board, books, everything. I remember the night that she went away, we had a big dinner for her, and everybody came out to say goodbye at the train station. There must have been 30, 35 people there. We all knew that she was going to make it big. You know, a lot of people from Bensonhurst have. You know, she was going to make the Falconeris proud. She got on that train, and she never looked back. She was registered at Princeton as Katherine Hardwicke Howard, and she never once invited her parents to visit her, not once.

Carly: If you're so mad at her, why are you here?

Olivia: She's family, and Sonny invited me.

Carly: I see.

Olivia: It's going to be some wedding, huh?



Elizabeth: Okay, let me think about this, just for a second. I have a week of vacation that I either have to use or lose, so I don't think Epiphany's going to mind such last-minute notice, and like I told you, Lucky's going to take the boys to the mountains this week.

Jason: Okay, you should -- you should tell Lucky you're going away with me.

Elizabeth: I will, just in case there's an emergency with the boys. But he's getting on with his life, and I'm getting on with mine.

Jason: Okay, I should leave, or I'm never going to leave you. I want you to meet me tomorrow at the airport, okay, right after the wedding, and you can just wait in the first class lounge for me.

Elizabeth: Okay, I'll be there.

Jason: All right.



Nikolas: Why would I want to show up at your room in the middle of the night, Nadine?

Nadine: That -- that's not what I meant.

Nikolas: You were hoping that I'd just climb through the window and -- oh, wait, that was you at the police commissioner's home. I'm sorry.

Nadine: Be quiet.

Nikolas: If I don't know what you want, how can I give it to you?

Nadine: Okay, look, look. We are -- we are really busy. Obviously, we are swamped until Epiphany gets back, right, Leyla?

Leyla: Oh, I'm staying out of this one.

Nadine: Look, what I meant was that I know how worried you were about me, and I thought that maybe you might come in in the middle of the night and check to make sure that I was still breathing or something.

Nikolas: Right, yeah.

Nadine: Besides, why are you making such a big deal about this? What, you can't make it through the day without me?

Nadine: Well, I didn't expect you to just get up and leave this morning.

Nadine: Well, I have to get back to my real life, because I might have another clue.

Nikolas: Oh, don't -- don’t. Is this about the drug ring thing again?

Nadine: It's just a hunch.

Nikolas: Can we go back to the part where I show up in your bedroom in the middle of the night? That was -- whatever it is, please don't do it.

Nadine: I'll be fine.

Nikolas: It's going to get out. All right, all right, whatever. What's the clue?

Nadine: You're just going to laugh at me, and besides, it's probably nothing, so don't worry about it.

Nikolas: Too late now, right, Leyla?

Nadine: It's just something that I thought of when I was lying awake at night in your castle.

Nikolas: Wyndemere is not a castle.

Nadine: Well, it's the closest thing that I have ever been to a castle, and those nights I spent there were the closest I've ever been to a prince, which was really not that close.

Nikolas: What is the hunch?

Nadine: You'll find out soon enough, maybe. But right now, I really have to get back to work. Thanks, Leyla, and I'm sure that -- that you have to get back to whatever it is princes do all day.

Nikolas: I work.

Nadine: Really? Huh. Let me know when that happens. I would love to see that for myself.

Nikolas: I work.



Lulu: Johnny!

Lucky: Lulu?

Lulu: You just made Johnny leave, didn't you?

Lucky: I'm trying to help you.

Lulu: You have no right to keep Johnny away from me.

Lucky: Will you just look at this at another point of view?

Lulu: You know what? If you're going to lecture me, you might as well leave.

Lucky: Nobody enjoys keeping you away from Johnny.

Lulu: You and Dr. Winters are wrong.

Lucky: Now, Dr. Winters is very reasonable, and she has a great reputation. I agree with her, Lulu. Your life started falling apart the first day you met that guy.

Lulu: Fine, when I met Johnny some bad things happened, but again, Johnny didn't cause any of them.



Lucky: Lulu, you are lying to yourself.

Sonny: You heard from Max?

Milo: Yeah, he got to Sicily okay.

Sonny: And?

Milo: He, um --

Sonny: How's it going with your father?

Milo: Well, I'm glad I wasn't the first-born son. Max has it pretty rough sometimes.

Sonny: Well, I can imagine. I mean, you know, Maximus Giambetti -- that's a legend, right?

Milo: Yeah.

Sonny: Okay, turn around.

Anthony: Please, there's no problem. Can you spare a minute for a crippled old man?



Kate: Ah.

Olivia: Hey, Connie.

Kate: Olivia?

Olivia: Surprise.

Kate: You look good.

Olivia: Well, you don't got to sound so surprised about it. Look at you. You look like, uh, one of those ladies who lunch at the Carlyle.

Kate: Yeah, okay, thank you. Thanks. So, um, how did you find me?

Olivia: Sonny.

Kate: You're my surprise.

Olivia: Well, try to contain yourself.

Kate: No, no. Olivia, no, I'm sorry. I didn't -- um -- I just -- it's been twenty years, and, um -- how did he find you?

Olivia: Well, it was Bensonhurst, Connie, it's not the other side of the moon. He called Mr. Rollo, he asked how he could contact me, you know, and we met at Frankie’s.

Kate: Oh, right, Frankie’s. Wow. Is it still there?

Olivia: Oh, Frankie’s will be there forever. Listen, if you don't want me here, I'm on the next plane out.

Kate: No, no, no, no. No, no, no. I want you. I want you here, Olivia. No, I'm just trying to process and --

Olivia: I told Sonny that you were going to hate this. But he has got this idea in his mind that you want your family around, so --

Kate: I know, I know. It's just -- it's weird. Okay? Because I've been thinking a lot about you lately, and it's very strange.

Olivia: Well, this is a really great house you got here.

Kate: Thank you.

Olivia: Sonny's driver pulled up and I thought he had the wrong address. Sonny gave me my own driver and car, do you believe that?

Kate: Yeah. He likes to show off.

Olivia: And what, he lives in the fortress next door? As the driver pointed that out, too.

Kate: Uh-huh. It was a complete accident, Olivia. No, really. I mean, none of this was supposed to happen. I wanted to spend some time outside of the City. This was supposed to be my weekend home. I never intended to live here full-time. I never intended to leave "Couture." I wasn't planning to marry Sonny.

Olivia: Well, you were always real good at getting what you wanted. I missed you, Con.

Kate: I missed you too, Olivia. More than you can imagine.



Claudia: But you'd be able to get the dress in time for the wedding? Oh, thank you so much. The whole wedding thing is sort of last-minute, and yeah -- no, I just really appreciate it. Got to go. Um, I take it that it didn't go so well, the visit with Lulu?

Johnny: It didn't go at all. Lucky Spencer made sure of it.

Claudia: How did that happen?

Johnny: He was sitting there waiting for me outside Lulu's door in the hallway when I got there. It took all I had not to beat the crap out of him on the spot. But I know the last thing I need is an assault on a police officer. I'm sorry.

Claudia: Hey, you got that right. You really do. You don't need that, John.

Johnny: I don't get it. I mean, why can't he just be a little more like Nikolas? You know? I know Nikolas hates me, too, but at least he respects what Lulu wants and what Lulu needs. I promised Lulu that we would be together after the trial and I've been there, what, once?

Claudia: John, Lulu needs time to get better.

Johnny: I know. I'm the one that took her there in the first place. And everybody's sitting here pointing the finger at me like I'm bad for her. Go ahead, say it.

Claudia: Well, what is there to say, Johnny, except I really don't care about Lulu one way or another except insomuch as it concerns you, and I know that it would kill you to watch her go crazy, whether it's your fault for playing with fire or it comes from her own mother's DNA.

Johnny: Why is it so impossible to believe that she might get better?

Claudia: Johnny, I love you. I want you to have what you want, right? I just don't see how having Lulu Spencer in your life makes it any better. I mean, today's a perfect example of that. What would have happened if you would have hit Lucky Spencer? You'd be right back in lockup.

Johnny: I just wanted to see her.

Claudia: Even if her doctors ask you not to?

Johnny: Well, what if the doctors are wrong? What if everybody's wrong and Lulu does need me? Then by staying away, I'm failing her.



Sonny: Whatever you have to say, I'm not interested.

Anthony: I owe you an apology. I was out of my mind with worry for my son when he escaped and I said some things to Alexis Davis regarding your daughter. Things I regret. It was a mistake. One that I won't make again. Now, I don't expect us to be friends, or even associates. But from one father to another, I wish you well.



Carly: Make sure Ms. Falconeri gets a fruit basket and a bottle of our best champagne. Oh, and let's comp her any and all services at the spa.

Marty: I'll make sure she's taken care of.

Carly: Thanks.

Jax: Which guest is getting the royal treatment?

Carly: An old friend of Sonny's in town for the wedding.

Jax: Oh, Carly, I'm not interested in rolling out the red carpet for the mob.

Carly: It's not the mob. It's an old friend from Bensonhurst. I met her this afternoon. She's really nice. I like her.

Jax: Then why should she get a free ride?

Carly: You have comped Kate Howard’s snotty guests for the wedding almost anything they want. You're going to begrudge Sonny's friend a fruit basket?

Jax: You're up to something.

Carly: Maybe. Maybe not. But the sooner you realize that my decisions here at the Metro Court are just as important as yours, we'll get along just fine. See you at the wedding.

Jax: I need to see everything we've got on this guest of Sonny’s.

Marty: Uh, she seems very nice. Very Brooklyn.



Nikolas: Jax. I appreciate your willingness to meet with me on such short notice.

Jax: Oh, the meeting. That's right. Your assistant called my secretary.

Nikolas: Is it a bad time?

Jax: No, not at all. Please. Excuse me.

Nikolas: Would you be more comfortable meeting in your office?

Jax: I don't assume this will take very long, will it?

Nikolas: No, no, of course not. My attorneys e-mailed you over all the paperwork, but I wanted to discuss the situation with you in person.

Jax: Why, is there a problem?

Nikolas: No. But I would like to make a formal offer on the Metro Court.

Jax: You want to buy this place?

Nikolas: Yes.

Jax: Why?

Nikolas: Well, I'm expanding my local properties.

Jax: Well, the Metro Court's not for sale.

Nikolas: It's quite a generous offer.

Jax: Well, if you want to expand, I mean, there's plenty of commercial property you can buy around here at a decent price.

Nikolas: But I want this property.

Jax: Why don't you try the Cosmopolitan?

Nikolas: I don't want the Cosmopolitan, I want the Metro Court.

Jax: Why?

Nikolas: Okay. You see, there's this incredible view from the front terrace on Spoon Island, it's --

Jax: You want to buy the Metro Court because you can see it from your front porch?



[Speaking Russian]



[Phone rings]

Johnny: Lulu.

Lulu: Are you coming here?

Johnny: I wanted to, but if seeing me is going to keep making you sicker --

Lulu: It won’t. You helped me get this far. Please, don't leave me now.

Johnny: But if the doctors keep telling me to stay away, I can't keep just showing up.

Lulu: You're wrong. The trial is over. You're free. You promised me we'd be together.

Johnny: We -- we will be.

Lulu: Promise me you'll see me tonight.

Johnny: I can’t. It's past visiting hours. I'm --

Lulu: Okay. Promise you'll see me tomorrow. Please. I need something to look forward to.

Johnny: I promise.



Kate: You still working at the car dealership?

Olivia: Yeah. I run the parts department, and Vito runs sales.

Kate: Oh, really? So does anyone know that you came to see me?

Olivia: Everybody knows, Con. They tried to talk me out of it all the way to the airport.

Kate: The name is Kate.

Olivia: Not to me.

Kate: Well, actually, my legal name is Kate.

Olivia: A lot of people get out of Bensonhurst without doing what you did. A lot of people stay there their whole lives and do just fine, thank you very much.

Kate: Um, Olivia, I really do miss you. I miss the neighborhood. But, um, the girl I was then? She's gone.

Olivia: You know, we all grew up, Connie. We all changed. Everything changed, not just you. Everything. Except Sacred Heart. Sacred Heart's exactly the same, right down to the stupid uniforms and feasts.

Kate: Feasts? You mean the feast of Santa Rosalia?

Olivia: Yeah.

Kate: I haven't thought about that in a while.

Olivia: Yeah, you should see it now. All those lights. And they still got the best zeppole in the city.

Kate: I'll bet.

Olivia: Mm-hmm.

Kate: My parents used to take me to that every year. My father, he would never let go of my hand, and my mom would always buy me something special.

Olivia: You were all I had, con. You know what, you should do an article about the feast of Santa Rosalia in "Crimson". I think that would be great. Just pictures of the lights and all the people and everything. That would be so pretty.

Kate: You read "Crimson"?

Olivia: Well, I used to read "Couture," too. It really went down after you left.

Kate: Oh, really? Wow.

Olivia: You did good, Connie.

Kate: Olivia, can you please just do me a favor and call me Kate at the wedding?

Sonny: How do you like the surprise?



Carly: You have to take me to Sonny's wedding. I really want to be at Sonny's wedding. I can't wait to be at Sonny's wedding.

Jason: Why -- why are you so happy?

Carly: Well, you know, the wedding is a chance for me to prove to Sonny and Jax I don't need either one of them. I can stand on my own two feet. And I'd like to wish Sonny well.

Jason: Okay, that's the same line you gave me yesterday. Exactly.

Carly: Yeah, well, I'm telling you the same thing today.

Jason: No, no. Something else is going on.

Carly: I want to get there early. I don't want to miss a second of this wedding.

Jason: No. You're all fired up for a reason. You have a plan.

Carly: We all have a plan. In one form or another.

Jason: Carly, just tell me what's going on.



Nadine: Oh, God, no! I got on the wrong ferry, obviously. And --

[Man speaks Russian]

Nadine: Oh, um --

Sasha: It's obvious to me that you need a translator.

Nadine: Boy, am I glad to see you.

Sasha: They don't understand a word you're saying. Although "spy" has the same meaning in any language.



Nikolas: Come on, Jax, you have diversified interests. I'm sure you could do without this hotel.

Jax: But the Metro Court is not for sale. I mean, if you're serious about acquiring a hotel, why don't you build your own?

Nikolas: You haven't even heard my offer, which means your refusal is probably personal.

Jax: No, it means that the Metro Court's not for sale, and this conversation is over. I'm sorry.



Carly: Let's just say today I got a whole new insight into Sonny and his bride-to-be.

Jason: Okay, I'm just going to say, if you're planning to sabotage the wedding, I'm not going to take you.

Carly: That's the beauty. I don't have to do anything. I just want to be there to see it happen.

Jason: See what happen?

Carly: Tomorrow, the great Kate Howard will get exactly what she deserves.



Anthony: So, Ric tells me he's taking you to Sonny's wedding?

Claudia: Well, he didn't ask your permission, did he?

Anthony: He's keeping me current, Claudia. I expect you to do the same.

Claudia: Do you have a problem with me going to Sonny and Kate's wedding?

Anthony: I don't even know why you're bothering to go there.

Claudia: Because I want to see who shows up. I want to see who's in the room. I want to see and I want to be seen, you know?

Anthony: That's a good instinct. But don't keep Ric too busy. I need him for other things.

Claudia: Like what?

Anthony: Well, it may be time to form an alliance with Mr. Corinthos. To keep the power in the family, as it were.



Olivia: So I got to ask you, how long did it take for you to get used to calling her Kate?

Sonny: Well, you know, that's how she introduced herself when we first saw each other again. She's definitely created this person who she wanted to be, you know? She's doing things that Connie Falconeri couldn't even think of.

Olivia: Connie Falconeri could have done anything. She could have been anything.

Sonny: Kate doesn't think so. That's why I know she wants to reconnect with her past.

Olivia: It's a little bit late now.

Sonny: No, it's not. Look, I want to bring the family to her. You know, the old neighborhood.

Olivia: She's got to want it, too.

Sonny: If she had to do it all over again, I know she would do things differently.

Olivia: Who wouldn't? Wouldn't you? Given the opportunity to go back and do things different, wouldn't you?

Sonny: Are you okay with this? Are you weird with this? Because if you are, then just let me know, you know?

Olivia: I'm fine. Don't worry about me, okay? Vito said this was a terrible idea, but I said, what the hell? Anyway. You always could talk me into anything.

Kate: Well, I don't mean to rush you, but we can't be late for our own rehearsal dinner.

Sonny: Why don't you come with us?

Olivia: Oh, no. Thanks for asking.

Sonny: Well, it would be nice to have someone from the old neighborhood and you could maybe meet some guy there or something.

Olivia: I don't have anything to wear, no. I brought one nice suit for the wedding, but I can't wear the same thing both places. It would be a cardinal sin, right, Kate?

Sonny: You know, speaking of the wedding, it's up to Kate, but she doesn't have a maid of honor.

Olivia: You asking me?

Sonny: I'm not -- well, it's up to Kate. I mean, you know.

Olivia: I -- no, I couldn't possibly.

Sonny: Well, here's what happened is two people, they backed out. I don't know exactly what happened, but her assistant stepped up, and it would be nice to have family. You guys would be --

Kate: Yes, of course, family. It's just a little late notice.

Olivia: Well, I mean, can't-- can't one of your bridesmaids just step up? I mean, how big's the party?

Kate: Uh, it's pretty small.

Olivia: You don't have a friend that can help you out here, or what?

Kate: You know, Sonny's right. I would actually really like to have family. Would you consider it?

Olivia: Sure.

Kate: Okay.

Olivia: Sure.

Kate: I'll have the dress sent over tomorrow.

Sonny: Yeah, that means you have a dress for the wedding rehearsal, too, so if you want --

Olivia: No, really. Guys, I'm not going to push my luck. Anyway, I could use the rest. I think we both got a big day tomorrow, right?

Sonny: You sure?

Olivia: I'm going to go back to the hotel, yeah.

Kate: Okay, so --

Olivia: Bye.

Kate: Bye.

Sonny: All right, I'll see you tomorrow.

Olivia: See you.

Sonny: You okay with this?

Kate: Ah, it's a pretty big surprise.

Sonny: Yeah, but it's family and I know you miss family.

Kate: Yeah, yeah, but I've got all the family I need right here.

Sonny: Okay.
