Patrick: Okay, I'm going to go with the Denver omelet, please.
Robin: Make that two. What's your herbal tea of the day?
Mike: Herbal tea? Passion fruit.
Robin: Okay, I'll have one of those.
Mike: Okay, coming right up.
Patrick: You know what? Scratch that. Let's go with oatmeal, strawberries, whole wheat toast.
Patrick: We have to maintain healthy iron levels for the placenta.
Patrick: Well, I mean, I'm going to give up my omelet. I don't think it's really fair for me to eat something else. Plus, 86 the tea. She doesn't really want it. We'll go with orange juice. Folic acid.
Mike: Look, excuse me, but I -- I'm no expert by any stretch, but I always understood that -- that babies need folic acid in the first trimester.
Robin: That's actually true, Mike.
Patrick: Actually, no, that's a myth. It's good for pregnancy, the whole pregnancy.
Mike: If you say so, Doc.
Robin: The hovering was annoying before. Now that you know we're having a girl, this is just out of control.
Patrick: Well, Robin, if you can't tell, I'm terrified.
Claudia: Whose idea was it to shackle my brother like an animal? Let me guess, Scotty Baldwin? Hey, I'm talking to you.
Johnny: Calm down. He's just doing his job. I'd like a few minutes alone with my sister, please.
Johnny: That's original.
Claudia: What? How can you be so calm? You're shackled hand and foot.
Johnny: At least they're letting me have visitors.
Claudia: Well, brace yourself because it's about to get a hell of a lot worse. Scott Baldwin thinks he has everything he needs to convict you of murder.
Lulu: No. No! No!
[Knock at door]
Bernie: Looks like you haven't slept all night.
Jason: I almost killed a child last night.
Sam: It was really nice of you stop by. Thanks.
Elizabeth: I always follow up with my patients.
Sam: Well, the wound is doing much better today, thanks to you.
Sam: Okay, that sounded puny, I know. Look, I just -- I really don't quite know how to tell you how grateful I am for the unquestioning way you helped me last night.
Elizabeth: Don't worry about it.
Lucky: Don't minimize what you did. You not only saved Sam, but you saved me. By taking care of her, you helped us avoid going to any hospital.
Elizabeth: Well, I'm always happy to help. How's your sister?
Lucky: We spent time with the doctors and she's not doing so good.
Elizabeth: I'm sorry.
Lucky: Nikolas, he's there. And I'm going there as soon I can make sure Sam doesn't end up on last night's D.E.A. report.
Sam: That's good.
Elizabeth: So what's your next move on the counterfeit drug front?
Lucky: There is none.
Sam: I'm sorry?
Lucky: We proved it last night.
Lucky: We're in over our heads. We're dropping this investigation.
Sam: No, hold on a minute. I didn't get a scar for nothing, Lucky. This scar that I'm going to have is going to help prove to Karpov that I'm -- I'm loyal and help me get further into his organization. I'm not going to walk away from that.
Johnny: You heard anything about Lulu?
Claudia: No, nothing.
Johnny: You expect me to believe that?
Johnny: Between your friend Nikolas and our father, you expect me to believe that you've heard nothing about Lulu.
Claudia: Now, I don't really give a damn about Lulu, John, so I'm not exactly lining up for her progress reports.
Johnny: Maybe you weren't paying attention when they dragged me out of Shadybrook in handcuffs. When Lulu was losing it, they shoved her into a straightjacket and tried to sedate her, okay? All that was because she cared about me too much to allow me to bring her home sooner.
Claudia: Oh, you know what, honey? You're right. I must have missed that because I was focused on my brother who was being dragged out by the cops and a prosecutor who wants to try him for murder and put him in jail for the rest of his life. Johnny, what the hell is the matter with you? When are you going to wake up and realize you're entire future is on the line here? And granted, it's not a great future anymore because you pretty much blew that all to hell when you made a jailbreak with Lulu. John, you couldn't have made yourself look more guilty if you had -- if you had posed for a photograph with a bloody knife in your hand.
Johnny: It was my decision.
Claudia: Was it your decision? Was it really? Because I know that Lulu's the one who came up with the idea of busting you out of here. And I know gosh darn well that she's the one who brought the gun in here. So it seems to me like Lulu's making all the choices and her big fat love just ruined your life.
Nikolas: Lulu, Lulu, look at me. It's Nikolas. It's me. It's okay. Baby, you're -- you're okay. You're okay. No one can hurt you.
Lulu: Nikolas, I'm sorry.
Nikolas: You don't have anything to apologize for. Just tell me what upset you.
Lulu: I just -- I woke up and I'm at Shadybrook and I don't want to be here. I don't want to be here.
Nikolas: I'm going to get you out of here as soon as possible, okay? I promise. But you have to -- can you be honest with me, hmm? Do you see something in here?
Lulu: You think that I'm hallucinating?
Nikolas: I'm just -- no, I'm just -- I'm just saying I've been there. I saw Emily for months. I know what it's like to have to cover with everyone. Is that what's happening with you? Look, you -- you can trust me. I'm not going to judge you.
Lulu: I see Logan.
Jason: I went to Karpov's warehouse last night to get rid of him.
Bernie: Yeah? Did you have trouble getting in?
Jason: No, no trouble. I got into position. It took a little while to get a clear site-line, you know, Karpov's pacing around. His lawyer was there. She was getting in the way.
Bernie: Mm-hmm, and then?
Jason: I finally had my shot. And I was about to take it when a little girl, she couldn't have been more than 10, ran into Karpov's arms. Almost exactly like what happened to Michael. Wrong place, wrong time, innocent kid, and for what? Karpov and I agreed to live and let live for now.
Bernie: I can see how that would make you more comfortable in the short run. But down the road, this is a decision that could come back to haunt you.
Claudia: There's nothing that you can do for Lulu, Johnny. You need to accept that and start focusing on yourself, here. You know, salvage your defense by telling Alexis Davis what really happened, that Lulu brought the gun in here, that she engineered your entire escape --
Johnny: Okay, you can stop it right there. I know you don't want to hear it, but I love Lulu and I'm not throwing her to the wolves or doing anything to throw her in harm's way. So get that message through your own head. Then take it to our father, Ric, and Trevor. Lulu is to remain untouched.
Claudia: Oh, that's noble of you. It really is, but, Johnny, you're too late. Lulu is at Shadybrook. She's under 24-hour surveillance, babbling God knows what. And you can bet your sweet ass the cops are going to hear every rambling word. That's why you need to do your own damage control. You need to come forward with what really happened and let Lucky and Nikolas worry about Lulu. I mean --
Johnny: I'm going to tell you this as many times as it takes for it to sink in. I love Lulu and I'll do anything to protect her.
Claudia: Okay, damn it, John. Lulu, she's the reason that you had to go on the run here. You remember that? She's the reason that you got caught. So what's going to happen when they strap you down for lethal injection, huh? You going to be crying about how much you love that stupid girl?
Johnny: You're damn right I am. If you don't like it, get the hell out.
Claudia: Fine, you know what? I will because I have no desire to watch you destroy your life.
Lulu: At first I would just see him in nightmares, and now he's just showing up here whenever.
Nikolas: Like when I first came in? Does he say anything to you? Talk to you?
Lulu: He just stands there, looking at me with hurt and accusation in his eyes. He has a knife in his stomach and he's very, very dead. And I try to be strong and tell myself that I don't see him, but I really see him and I can't make him go away.
Nikolas: Do you see him right now?
Lulu: No, but I'm losing my mind. That's what this means, right?
Nikolas: No, no, no. You've just been under a lot of pressure.
Lulu: But that's what happens. The pressure just makes your brain snap and then you become catatonic in Shadybrook like Mom.
Lulu: Is that what I'm destined for, to just be trapped inside my own mind with Logan haunting me forever?
Lucky: Would you excuse us? In case you've forgotten, my sister is having a nervous breakdown. My father is gone, all right, so I don't want to risk losing you.
Sam: I realize that you feel like your life is spinning out of control right now and you're concerned about my safety, but I have my own concerns, too. Namely, that people are getting sick and dying in hospitals because of the counterfeit drug ring that we can help bring down.
Lucky: And there are other ways to bust Karpov. So I'm asking you, give it up.
Sam: That is not fair and I canít.
Elizabeth: Do you guys want an objective opinion?
Sam: Go ahead.
Lucky: Just step right in.
Elizabeth: It's obvious you guys really care about each other. And part of being in a successful relationship is having respect for each other's choices, whether you agree with them or not, and allowing the path they choose, no matter how afraid you are for someone. So I really hope you guys can do that, because from what I can see, you have a chance at being really good together. And it would be a shame to blow it out of stubbornness. And that's not directed at anyone in particular. That's it.
Lucky: Elizabeth, I'd appreciate it if you could just stick around and make sure Sam doesn't take off the minute I'm gone.
Sam: Excuse me. I'm sorry, but did you not hear a word that she just said?
Lucky: Yeah, every single one. I just want Elizabeth to stick around and make sure that you're healing properly so you can go back to being undercover when you're at your best.
Jason: I've seen bosses drunk on power and paranoia. I mean, look at Zacchara, Alcazar, now Karpov. A preemptive strike against guys like that is the first step down a bloody road that I don't want to take.
Bernie: Yeah, and I didn't mean to offer you bad advice.
Jason: You didnít. It doesn't mean I'm going to take it, but I don't want you to stifle yourself, Bernie, because your opinion is valuable to me.
Bernie: Okay, so I can tell you what I'm thinking?
Bernie: All right. I've made inquiries, and Karpov always follows the same pattern when he's making an expansion. He moves in. He tells the locals he's just operating on the periphery. And then once he's established a base, he just takes out the competition, I'm mean, without compunction. It's only a matter of time before he uses that M.O. on you.
Jason: It might work in Europe. It's not going to work here. He's overextended.
Jason: Come on, a successful takeover would not be realistic for -- for months.
Bernie: Right. He is vulnerable now and he may not be that vulnerable in, say, two months. So looking at it from a purely business perspective, now is the time for you to make your move.
Jason: And you're saying this to me because that is what Sonny would do.
Nikolas: Don't jump to conclusions based on fear, okay? You're not going to end up catatonic like Mom. And those visions of Logan will eventually disappear once you get some treatment, okay? You don't have to make this a self-fulfilling prophecy, you know.
Lulu: That's exactly what Johnny said.
Nikolas: Well, then for once, I agree with him. See? Miracles can happen when you least expect.
Lulu: I love you.
Nikolas: I love you, too. You'll be okay.
[Knock at door]
Monica: Hello, Nikolas, Lulu.
Alice: Hi, Mr. Nikolas.
Nurse: Dr. Foster wants to limit non-family visits. You have five minutes.
Edward: Don't be ridiculous. We are this girl's family.
Nikolas: I can stay if you want me to.
Lulu: I'll be fine, thank you.
Monica: Well, how are you?
Lulu: Um, a little shaky.
Alice: You're going to be just fine, Miss Lulu. I know it.
Edward: And Tracy has gone to look for Luke. She'll get him back here as soon as possible.
Alice: But in the meantime, look what we brought you, your favorite muffins.
Lulu: That was very thoughtful.
Edward: Well, we wanted you have a piece of home.
Monica: Yes, an edible piece.
Lulu: In case I go crazy and I don't get the chance to say it, thank you for putting up with me, even though I was bratty and probably didn't deserve it.
Monica: Are you kidding? The Quartermaines have taken brattiness to an art form. And Edward is right. You are one of us now, so you get better and you come home where you belong.
Nadine: Come on, at least try. Maybe you'll make more progress than I did.
Leyla: You know, unlike you, I don't happen think Dr. Hunter is part of some counterfeit drug ring. I do think, though, that he's a bit of a rebel and a major player, a lot like Patrick. Which begs the question, why would I willingly put myself in another position where my heart could be made available for more indiscriminate stomping?
Matt: I need the Allen chart.
Matt: Thank you. What is that smell?
Matt: Yeah -- no, it's you. You're wearing a new perfume.
Leyla: Oh, I don't wear perfume, none of us do. Patients could be allergic.
Matt: Oh, so you're just trying to say you naturally smell like heaven?
Nadine: Doctors Drake and Scorpio, here are your charts for today.
Robin: Thank you.
Patrick: Uh, you know what? Let me take Rosenthal and I'll take Diaz. I'm familiar with that, too.
Robin: No, I will take it because I'm the doctor of record. That's why I come to work everyday, to treat my patients.
Patrick: No, I know. I just thought maybe you could get a little rest. You and the baby can go home and -- you don't need rest, it's still the morning. What am I thinking?
Robin: Yeah. See you later.
Matt: So I would like -- I would love to take you out to dinner some time. So what's a good night?
Leyla: I don't date in the workplace.
Matt: Right, neither do I. I don't think we should have dinner in the workplace, either.
Leyla: Sorry, that's a rule I have.
Matt: Yeah? Okay, rules are made to broken. There's exceptions.
Leyla: I don't think so.
Matt: Can you think just a little more on it?
Patrick: Shut your mouth and back off, or I'll turn you in for sexual harassment.
Elizabeth: You were right. So far, so good.
Elizabeth: There you go.
Sam: Okay, can I just say something? This is really weird.
Elizabeth: What is?
Sam: Well, I mean, I don't know. We were not friends and here I am feeling totally grateful to you. And not only for your awesome medical attention, but for what you just said to Lucky before. I think you really got through to him.
Elizabeth: I hope I didn't come off like the relationship police or anything. I just can see that you guys are good together and I think you need a little time to figure it out.
Sam: You know what? I think you're right.
Elizabeth: Okay, well, I guess, call me if you need me.
Elizabeth: All right.
Sam: Um, Elizabeth?
Sam: Thank you, I mean, for everything.
Elizabeth: Don't stop believing in Lucky. He won't let you down.
Jason: I've always been more comfortable taking orders than giving them. You know, Sonny called the shots. If he wanted a preemptive strike, I carried it out.
Bernie: Yeah, unless you disagreed, which happened more than once. Listen, I heard all those stories from when my brother worked here. Some pretty big decisions, choices that shaped this organization came about because you decided to go against the status quo.
Jason: Yeah, but the burden was still on Sonny. If he was wrong, he would've taken the fall. Now it's all on me.
Bernie: Yeah, no, I -- I understand the pressures that you're under. You were -- you're responsible for the day-to-day operation of a -- of a very complex syndicate. But you're also responsible for the people who work for you, people who stand to lose everything if Karpov takes over or if he decides to start a civil war. They'll become targets. Don't you think you owe it to the people who work with you to do what you can to protect them?
Patrick: Did you skip the sexual-harassment seminar? It's mandatory, you know. And from what I just heard, you're pretty much the only guy around here that could use the guidance.
Matt: Okay, um, other than the sheer hypocrisy of Patrick "Dog" Drake lecturing anyone about sex in the workplace, you are completely out of line. You may be senior to me when it comes to treating patients, but you have absolutely no authority over my personal life, and that includes who I'd like to flirt with.
Patrick: Leyla, is Dr. Hunter bothering you? If so, just say the word and I'll have him shipped down to the admittance desk.
Leyla: Okay, uh, I really appreciate your concern, but it's unnecessary. I'm perfectly capable of handling Matt by myself.
Matt: I actually have work to do. Nice picture, buddy.
Leyla: Did he just --
Patrick: Guy's a jerk.
Nadine: I'm so sorry. I didn't know that asking you to work Matt would put you in the middle of all that.
Leyla: No, it's okay. All of a sudden, I'm really intrigued about the dynamic between Matt and Patrick. Interesting, don't you think?
Alexis: Hey, Harper. Can you get me the report on the John Zacchara capture? There's already allegations of brutality. I want to get prepared.
Harper: Yeah, I'll get it.
Alexis: Thank you.
Anthony: A word, D.A. Davis?
Alexis: Not interested.
Anthony: All right. Let me make this as clean and simple as possible so there's no room for misunderstanding. Either my son goes free, or you lose what you love most.
Alexis: Your threats no longer faze me, Mr. Zacchara. Sonny and Jerry have both made it very clear that should any harm come to my daughters, you'll be dead and your beloved son might be, too.
Anthony: I'm not so sure of that. Your protectors like to throw Johnny's name around, but I'm confident it's just a scare tactic. I think they'd stop at killing me. And I have no problem putting my theory to the test if it shakes up Johnny's case enough for him to go free. Unfortunately, you would've already paid a parent's ultimate price. So you just let me know. Do you really want to play chicken with a psycho bastard like me?
Alexis: Get this guy out of here.
Anthony: Oh, there's no need to trouble yourself. I can find my own way out. You folks get back to working on my son's case and making sure that justice prevails.
Nikolas: Well, I stopped by the clinic and got your message. What's going on?
Claudia: I'm worried about my brother. I went to see him this morning to try to get him to focus on some kind of a defense, but all he wants to know about is Lulu. So I was hoping maybe you had some kind of positive thing that I could take back to him.
Nikolas: I really wish I did, but she's really shaky right now.
Claudia: What does that mean? How sick is she?
Nikolas: Well, Claudia, I certainly know you're not asking because you really care about Lulu, so just tell me what is going on?
Claudia: Well, no, it's about my brother, okay? This is all about saving John, but, Nikolas, you have to understand something. If -- if Lulu was already cracking before she and Johnny made an escape, that could -- that could really help his case. And if she's too nuts to testify, even better.
Nikolas: Well, then -- then your brother is in luck because my sister's very ill right now and getting worse by the minute. Does that make you happy?
Claudia: No, of course not.
Nikolas: You really want to know how she's doing?
Nikolas: I'll tell you. She sees dead Logan just standing around everywhere with the knife still stuck in his gut. She's terrified that she's going to spend the rest of her life in a catatonic state. That's how she's doing. And you know what? It's not much of a stretch.
Lulu: Hey, Mom. I'm back. Maybe even permanently. I have a room right across the hall from you here at Shadybrook.
Lulu: We give new meaning to "like mother, like daughter," huh? I hate it here. Everything is so cold and sterile. I mean, the staff tries to be nice, but I know they're just waiting for me to flip out. It makes me nervous. The only good thing is that I'm close to you, so I can come see you and talk to you. It also kind of scares me because when I look at you, I see myself. What's it like? Are you at peace? Are you trapped inside of your mind, screaming right now to get out? Oh, Lucky, I'm so glad to see you.
Lulu: I hate it here.
Lucky: I know, I know. It's going to be okay. Whatever it takes, we're going to get through this.
Robin: When did you get back?
Anna: Just now. I finally convinced the agency to give me this leave of absence I've been asking for, so --
Anna: Here I am. And my plan is to stay here until the baby's born.
Robin: Well, that's fantastic.
Anna: Yeah? It's good, right?
Anna: I think you might need me a little bit more than I first thought.
Robin: Uh-oh. What -- why?
Anna: Well, I don't know, um -- is that -- is that Leyla? You know, the one that had the affair with Patrick?
Robin: Yeah, why?
Anna: Okay, so I don't know, it's, um -- I don't know whether it's like the whole fatherhood thing or what, but I think Patrick might be sort of toying with going back in that direction.
Robin: Why would you say that?
Anna: Well, I witnessed this whole sort of bust-up between Patrick and some other doctor. And just because Patrick had kind of seen him, you know, hitting on Leyla -- and, I mean you would've thought that this poor guy had committed murder or something the way that Patrick laid into him. I mean, he accused him of sexual harassment and that he was going to report him, and -- and this is Patrick we're talking about here. You know what I mean?
Robin: Yes, I know what you mean, but I think I know what's going on, so why don't we go to Kellyís -- I'm starving. We can get some lunch, and I'll explain everything.
Anna: All right.
Patrick: Hey, Leyla, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to intrude on your personal life there.
Leyla: Oh, you have far more important things to worry about.
Patrick: What do you mean?
Leyla: I think Robin's mom overheard you get into that fight with Matt Hunter. And I have a sneaking suspicion she's off somewhere right now with Robin, telling her that you're pursuing me again.
Claudia: I'm sorry for being so insensitive and tunnel-visioned. I have not forgotten that you're going through a hell of your own.
Nikolas: Yeah. It's -- I feel so helpless, again. The same way I did when my mother got sick.
Claudia: That's the worst part, isn't it, for people like us. When somebody that you love so much is in such desperate trouble and there's absolutely nothing you can do to help them. It slapped me in the face today when I saw Johnny this morning.
Nikolas: It's -- it's not the same, Claudia.
Claudia: No, it's not the same, but it doesn't have to be the same. It doesn't have to be the same. Danger is danger, whether it's coming from inside Lulu's mind or from the legal system. Look, Lulu may be at Shadybrook, but at least she's surrounded by people who actually want to help her. I mean, where my brother is, he's surrounded by people who want to see him convicted of murder and spend the rest of his life in prison.
Nikolas: Well, I'm going to do everything I can to make sure that doesn't happen because if John does get convicted, Lulu really will lose her mind.
Nikolas: Okay? Now, you and I, we have to be on the same side with this. You understand? There's one fundamental thing here that hasn't changed. What's good for Lulu is good for John and vice versa.
Claudia: I agree, I agree.
Nikolas: Okay, so -- so we can work together?
Claudia: Absolutely. All the way.
Lucky: We're fine, thanks. You know, I'm not so sure going to see Mom was such a great idea, at least not yet. And you really shouldn't leave your room without telling someone.
Lulu: I needed to see her. I'm not used to checking in with, like, six different people. I feel like I'm going suffocate in here.
Lucky: But you realize you're going to have to be here for a while.
Lulu: Yeah, I guess.
Lucky: Try and sound more reassuring. I need to know you're not going to try and take off again.
Lulu: Without Johnny? Never.
Lucky: You know, I was -- I was thinking about your situation and it feels familiar.
Lulu: How so?
Lucky: Well, it's not the same as me kicking pills, but there is a common thread. You have to let go. You need to start trusting strangers who may have a more realistic take on things than you do. All the people are in place to help you, Lulu -- Dr. Winters, the staff, me, Nikolas, Elizabeth, all the Quartermaines. All you have to do is let us. Hey. You think you can do that?
Alexis: That won't be necessary.
Johnny: I'm not about to start talking without my attorney present.
Alexis: That's not a problem. I'll talk, you listen. I'd like you to meet my daughters. This one is Kristina and this one's Molly.
Johnny: Okay, so?
Alexis: So you father has threatened to have them murdered if I don't get the charges against you dropped. See, I can't do that because they'll fire me and then someone else will pick up your prosecution right where I left off. I really need to know that you're following me on this. I really need you to understand that.
[Knock at door]
Cody: You wanted to see me?
Jason: Yeah, come on in. Bernie says a lot of good things about you.
Cody: Yeah? Glad to hear it.
Jason: Yeah, so I -- I want to give you an additional assignment, one that utilizes more of your particular skills.
Cody: I'm listening.
Jason: Go back to shadowing Karpov. I want you to tell me where he goes, who he sees, and when he's most vulnerable.
[Knock at door]
Sasha: Mr. Morgan. I don't know if you remember me. My name is Sasha --
Jason: I know who you are, Karpov's attorney. We'll have to finish up later.
Sasha: I'm very happy to have this chance for a private conversation with you.
Jason: About what?
Sasha: Mr. Karpov wanted me to reassure you. He means no disruption to you or your organization. He wants to co-exist.
Jason: Karpov already told me that. Why is he pushing so hard to convince me?
Mike: Well, I hear that congratulations --
Robin: Oh, no, I'm jut about to discuss something --
Mike: Ah, it's okay. I'll leave you to it.
Anna: I didn't mean to stick my nose into your business, you know? I mean, obviously, you know Patrick better than I do. It was just a hunch.
Robin: It's not what you think. Patrick's sudden advocacy for women's rights has nothing to do with Leyla.
Anna: Okay, well --
Anna: Oh, hi.
Patrick: Whatever your mom thinks she saw was an illusion. I wasn't flirting with Leyla, I swear.
Robin: I know, I know that. I was just about to explain to my mother why you're suddenly so sensitive to women.
Anna: No! Do you know?
Anna: Is it?
Robin: Yes, we're having a girl.
Anna: Oh, yes. Oh, my God.
Nikolas: All right, thanks, Lucky. Bye.
Nikolas: I can't take this anymore.
Nadine: You all right?
Nikolas: Oh, what do you want, Nadine?
Nadine: I heard your sister was committed to Shadybrook. I thought you might need someone to talk to.
Nikolas: No, no, I really don't, but thanks for making the trip. I'm fine, really.
Nadine: Is that why you just killed your cell phone?
Nikolas: You can leave now. You can leave now.
Nadine: I'm not leaving you alone in this state.
Nikolas: Okay, you know what? I get it, I get it now. I get that you -- that you want to help me. I get that you have this little crush on me or whatever it is you want to call it. I get that you're a good person and that you want to save me, but you can't save me. You understand? And even if I were to be with you, in the end, you'd just end up hurt.
Nadine: You can't choose for me.
Nikolas: You got to be -- okay. Okay, fine. Fine. Is this what you really want?
Scott: I'm going to give you "A" for effort, but it's not going to fly, not as long as I'm breathing.
Lulu: What are you talking about? What are you doing here?
Scott: I'm talking about faking crazy to stay out of court. I'm going to subpoena you and you're going to testify against your murdering boyfriend. And I think we'll just all enjoy the irony. Everything you guys did to bring Logan down. Your testimony is going to put Johnny away for the rest of his miserable, stinking life.
Johnny: I'm not my father. He doesn't speak for me or take actions on my behalf, so if you've got a problem with it, take it to your friend Jerry Jacks or Sonny. You know, I hear that Jason's also a good one to pull in.
Alexis: I don't want to start a mob war. I just want to keep my girls safe, and you can make that happen by simply doing the right thing. Johnny, confess. Confess that you killed Logan out of self-defense. You'll take your lumps for obstruction of justice and fleeing, and that's that. Look at them. Look at them. You want their deaths on your conscience? You want to wake up every day, knowing that they were murdered because of your father's failed attempt to get you released? Erase Anthonyís initiative. Erase the possibility that he can get you freed. If anything happens to these girls, it's on you.
