Jax: So you enjoyed the flowers, huh?
Leyla: Are you kidding? They were the envy of the nurses' station. And quite unnecessary. I had to check the card twice just to make sure they were for me.
Jax: Well, that was just my way of saying thank you for helping me last night, you know? I'll be climbing mountains all over the world thanks to your healing ways, so thank you.
Leyla: You're welcome.
Carly: So, tell me about these computer dates.
Spinelli: It's a -- it's a simple system really. It matches up to 25 compatibility points such as career, income, hobbies, and a perfect romantic getaway.
Maxie: Spinelli and I took the test for you, but we have some promising leads.
Jax: You're beautiful tonight.
Carly: Yeah, just tell me about the men I'm going to be dating.
Anna: You do know him, don't you? Yeah, that blank look is a dead giveaway.
Noah: I don't want to talk about it.
Anna: Hey, don't do that. Matt, Dr. Hunter, it's okay. You're safe. You're at General Hospital.
Diane: I knew better. I knew better than to get involved with Max Giambetti. But did I listen? Of course I didn't listen. I never listen to myself. It was his manly demeanor and his abs. You really can't even begin to imagine his abs. His -- his puppy dog eyes and his cheap, dreadful suits. All right, look, I'm a professional, and we have got a meeting to go to, and I'm going to be just fine.
Jason: Yeah, we have some notes to look over, don't we?
Diane: Yes, they're right here. I have all the plans for the redevelopment project right here.
Diane: I should have known that Max would turn out to be a lying, cheating, two-timing swine. Oh, God, I'm going to miss him.
Laura: Dr. McGinnis, I'd like you to meet my daughter, Lulu.
Dr. McGinnis: Glenn McGinnis. I've heard a lot about you.
Laura: I still brag about my children.
Dr. McGinnis: Forgive me; I thought you didn't want your family to know that you'd woken up.
Laura: Well, the best-laid plans, as they say -- anyway, my daughter has quite a few questions about my condition.
Dr. McGinnis: I am sure she does. So I have your permission to tell her everything?
Laura: Yes, I want her to know exactly what's going on.
Dr. McGinnis: Okay, ask away.
Lulu: How come I'm the only one at Shadybrook that knows my mom woke up?
Laura: My daughter has never been one to mince words.
Lulu: I just want to be clear on what's happening.
Dr. McGinnis: I'm sure you do. This is your mother's file if you want to examine it, all right? Now, I'll start at the beginning. As you probably know, lS-49 was developed in France. It's still part of a clinical trial. Your own mother is one of the few patients in the United States who's taken the drug. Now, the clinic who's running the trial -- they're being very quiet about this. No one really knows what the long-term effects of lS-49 are going to be. They don't want to raise false hope, nor do they want to expose themselves to liability, so they're not making any claims at all.
Lulu: Well, that makes sense.
Dr. McGinnis: Now, some of the patients who took the lS-49 and had a relapse are beginning to wake up, and we're not sure why.
Lulu: But why didn't you tell Nikolas? I mean, that's my brother.
Dr. McGinnis: And your mother's legal guardian, I know.
Lulu: Yeah, so, I mean, shouldn't the hospital notify him? Isn't that the law?
Dr. McGinnis: Absolutely, under normal circumstances. But as your mother's relapse became more and more notable, she signed a certain number of documents while she was still of sound mind.
Laura: I didn't want Nikolas to be burdened with that, Lulu.
Dr. McGinnis: Now, the first one is very simple. It just allows the hospital to continue to give your mother care should any developments or changes occur with lS‑49. Now, this one is different. This expressly denies permission to notify anyone, including your mother's legal guardian, if she should wake up. And we're also forbidden from discussing her treatment with lS-49 with anyone at all.
Laura: Because it is my life, Lulu, and it is my illness. I want to be the one to get the information first, and then I will decide what to do with it.
Dr. McGinnis: Now, these are the signed documents. You're free to review them if you'd like.
Lulu: How long is my mom going to stay awake this time?
Robin: The labs on Matt Hunter should be back soon. I know you're concerned.
Patrick: Oh, good. Yeah, I know, it's just -- it's weird. I look at him, and I see myself and think about chances I've taken with racing and stuff, and that could be me.
Robin: Well, I have something very special to take your mind off of that -- pre-delivery paperwork. Kelly wants everything to be in order at least a month before the due date.
Patrick: You sure you don't want to handle it by yourself?
Robin: I'm very sure. This is insurance, the checklist for HIV. My preference is to go for a natural birth and then go straight to C-section at the first sign of trouble.
Patrick: That makes sense.
Robin: Here are the transfusion stats and the birth certificate, which means we have to get serious about a name.
Patrick: What do you mean? I thought we were serious. I thought it was going to be plum, or was it pineapple?
Robin: I would like our child to speak to us when she grows up.
Patrick: You know, I was thinking I want our child to have a name that sounds like it's part of a law firm.
Robin: Okay, what about Anna Karen?
Patrick: Too Russian novel.
Robin: Anna Georgie? Georgie Malcolm.
Patrick: Do you really want to name our daughter after Uncle Mac?
Robin: Okay, why don't we just forget all the family ties and go with Alyssa Rose Scorpio.
Patrick: That's nice. Alyssa Rose. But I'm thinking more along the lines of Alyssa Rose Drake.
Matt: Who are you?
Anna: I'm Dr. Robin Scorpioís mom. You might have seen me around here sometimes.
Matt: Uh-huh, yeah.
Anna: So you were hurt in a fire.
Matt: Where? It was at -- it was at that clinic?
Matt: Nadine -- Nadine was supposed to meet me there.
Anna: She's okay, you know.
Matt: She's fine?
Anna: Yeah, yeah, yeah, don't worry. Robin's asked me to help. We can't seem to track down any of your family.
Matt: Don't bother. My mother's dead, and my father was never in the picture.
Diane: It's customary to knock.
Sonny: I'm -- what happened was you guys said you were having a meeting. I thought it was with a lawyer. I don't know what's going on here.
Jason: I had a meeting.
Diane: You just can't bear to see anybody happy, can you?
Jason: We're on our way to city council right now.
Sonny: Okay, I wanted to talk to you about the wedding.
Diane: Wedding? You mean that travesty that some people are going to have to sit through? Never mind that you cheat on Kate Howard and then you lie to her for months. Now you actually expect to be able to marry her. Well, why shouldn't you? You're Sonny Corinthos. You get everything you want. I mean, look at you, just standing there, so confident that in your icy little world everything belongs to you. Your fiancťe, your ex-wife, your bodyguard, and as you go blindly along, leaving a -- leaving a swath of heartbreak and shattered relationships in your wake -- and now you come in here and you've got the gall to mention the word "wedding." Not that a wedding was ever in my future.
Sonny: Jason, I'll talk to you about it later.
Jax: So tell me about yourself. You're from Iran?
Leyla: Well, I was born there, but my parents moved because of, well, politics.
Leyla: I was raised in England.
Jax: And being a nurse is just the first step, correct?
Leyla: How'd you know?
Jax: Well, I just can't picture you being a nurse in Upstate New York for the rest of your life.
Leyla: Yeah, I want to go to medical school.
Leyla: But tell me something. What is the thrill in climbing a sheer rock face without so much as a rope?
Jax: Adrenaline. That's the one thing I can always count on. That was a very skillful way of changing the subject there, by the way.
Leyla: Well, you could have really badly hurt yourself.
Jax: Yes, I could have. I've been making all kinds of bad choices lately, but that's about to change.
Spinelli: We strive only to take the sting away and utilize the latest technology to help set you on a new course.
Carly: I don't want to get hit on by every gold digger from here to Montana, and I don't want anyone out there in cyberspace knowing anything about me.
Spinelli: No, but it's all screen names up to this point. I mean, further information you wish to share is up to you.
Carly: What's my screen name?
Carly: I like that.
Maxie: It was Spinelli's idea.
Spinelli: Stone Cold has often mentioned your affection for sun and sand.
Carly: Okay, who is my first potential date?
Maxie: Okay, Ready2rock, you guys match on 14 different personality points. Let's see, he likes steak --
Maxie: And competitive ping pong.
Spinelli: Ah! Not every category is a perfect match.
Diane: I apologize for that outburst and for arguing with my ex-but-profoundly-gifted lover in front of you and for telling your former employer exactly what he needed to hear.
Jason: If you want to reschedule the city council meeting, it's no problem.
Diane: Jason, do you have any idea the wrangling it took to get the city council to agree to sit in on a special session just to simply discuss a waterfront renovation project with you? Most of them would rather give themselves a pay cut and dock themselves a week's vacation, and I promised them that you were actually going to show up. Of course, they'll all probably be too terrified to speak, which will be a blessing in and of itself, but Jason, I'm fine. I'm fine. Just don't think for a second that my -- that my work on this has been negatively affected simply because I have wasted the last several months of my life with a manly, handsome, deeply fulfilling --
Jason: I could go to the meeting by myself.
Diane: Are you -- are you kidding me? Half of them will flee in terror. They think -- they think you're going to mow them all down. I'm fine. I have already spent far too many billable hours on old what's his name. So get out of the way, you petty bureaucrats. Be prepared to give my client everything he is asking for, because Diane miller is about to get her groove back.
Robin: Alyssa Rose Drake, huh? Does that mean that you still want to get married?
Patrick: Now, don't worry. I've learned my lesson. I'll let go of the whole marriage thing.
Robin: Oh, okay, great, so then we're -- we're clear on that.
Patrick: Yeah, but what is wrong with our baby having Drake for a last name?
Robin: What's wrong with Scorpio? I mean, it makes complete sense to me, since I am the one that wanted to have a baby to begin with, and it would mean a lot to my Uncle Mac and my father, especially now that he's sick.
Patrick: I can understand that, but biology puts you closer to the baby, at least for the couple years, and giving her my last name would balance that out. I want her to know where her family is. I don't want her to wake up one day in a bad situation and not have that support there.
Robin: Well, that would never happen as long as I'm around.
Patrick: But you don't want to marry me, so who knows where we'll be in 10 years from now, and our little baby having my last name would be my way of being close to her, no matter what happens between us.
Robin: I want my little girl to be a strong, independent woman, just like my mother and just like me.
Patrick: And so do I, and you have your dad's last name, so why can't our little girl have my last name?
Nadine: You don't have to carry me.
Nikolas: Oh, come on. You're suffering from -- from smoke inhalation. I don't want you to get winded. You need to rest and recuperate.
Nadine: Well, I'm -- I'm grateful to be alive and that you pulled me out of that fire.
Nikolas: Even though you insisted that I get Matt Hunter out first?
Nadine: Well, if you hadn't, he might have died.
Nikolas: Yeah, but see, if you would have died, I would have never forgiven myself for leaving you behind, see?
Nadine: Well, I didn't, and I feel like I'm here under false pretenses. I mean, I don't mind resting for a couple of days, but I'm not really that hurt.
Nikolas: No? Well, I'll tell you what. Think of it this way. If you're here, well, that means that you're not climbing through the police commissioner's window or following people around on the docks or getting yourself burnt to a crisp. See, it's very therapeutic to me.
Nadine: Ah, okay, well, then.
Alfred: Good afternoon, Miss Crowell. I welcome you on behalf of the entire staff, and we'll do our best to make your stay here as comfortable as possible.
Nadine: Well, thank you, Mr. -- Oh, Alfred, I don't know your last name.
Alfred: You only address a butler by his first name, Miss.
Nadine: Oh, well, in that case, you're going to have to call me Nadine.
Alfred: It's an honor to have you here, Nadine, and might I express my personal delight that you were not incinerated last evening.
Nadine: Yeah, I'm feeling pretty good about that myself.
Dr. McGinnis: From a clinical standpoint, Lulu, all we can do is wait, watch, and hope for the best. You -- you just have to realize your mother could possibly just fade away, or she could rebound and live a perfectly normal life. We just don't know.
Laura: So at this point, it makes sense for me to stay here at Shadybrook and give myself every opportunity to recover.
Dr. McGinnis: Do you have any other questions?
Lulu: Um, I don't know. I don't think so. It's a lot to think about.
Dr. McGinnis: Sure is. Well, I'll be around if you need me.
Lulu: Thank you. I'm so sorry that I doubted you. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Will you forgive me?
Laura: Oh, it's okay.
Jax: Well, I had -- I had no idea that the mountain that I was climbing was considered sacred, although the fact that no one in that part of South America had ever climbed it should have given me a clue. Well, I found out rather late in the game that the tradition was to shoot the climbers as they were scaling down the mountain.
Leyla: Did you get shot at?
Jax: No, I didn't get shot at, but -- but all the tribe was there with, you know, full war paint and spears.
Leyla: They did not have spears.
Jax: No, they had spears, seriously.
Leyla: You are such a liar.
Jax: I considered presenting myself as a god who fell from the sky, but that would have been a hard sell on a good day, so --
Leyla: So what did you do?
Jax: I made a deal. You know, I basically told them I was rich and I owned one of these local internet companies down there in South America, and I gave the entire village free internet for the next 50 years.
Leyla: That so did not happen.
Jax: It's true.
Leyla: You are such a liar.
Carly: What if all these dates are total losers?
Spinelli: Well, there is -- there is a certain amount of risk involved. We only know them by the number of matches through their compatibility quiz and their screen names.
Carly: I shouldn't do this.
Spinelli: No, no, the great but broken-hearted Valkyrie must not lose faith. Onward, upward.
Carly: I have high expectations. Jax is a really tough act to follow.
Carly: Okay, well, you're not chickening out now.
Spinelli: Oh, oh, oh, your first respective date just messaged.
Carly: Who is it?
Spinelli: Ready2rock. He looks forward to meeting you, and -- although he does have limited availability.
Carly: How limited?
Spinelli: Well, I -- I guess he's never free on weekends.
Spinelli: What troubles fair Maximista about that?
Maxie: He's married.
Leyla: Working with Epiphany Johnson can be a real test of endurance. But I have to be honest; I've learned an incredible amount.
Jax: I can imagine. But besides work, if there's one thing that you could do today that you've never done before, what would it be?
Leyla: I would kayak on the open sea.
Jax: That's one of my favorite sports to do.
Leyla: You're kidding.
Leyla: Well, I've always wanted to try it.
Maxie: Who's next?
Spinelli: A 15-point match, especially on decisiveness and strength of character. Dream date is -- how did this happen?
Maxie: Championship wrestling?
Carly: Who is this guy?
Spinelli: Strngnsxy -- what? There's no vowels.
Maxie: Look -- oh, strong and sexy.
Jax: Oh, the water in Tahiti is wonderful this time of the year. Now, if you care to go, we could throw in some scuba diving as well.
Maxie: Who's next?
Spinelli: 18-point match, loves business, ballroom dancing, family-oriented.
Carly: Sounds good. What's his screen name?
Carly: Hmm, tell me more.
Leyla: You can't honestly be offering to fly me to Tahiti.
Jax: Why not? Life's short. Why not enjoy it?
Leyla: Yeah, that seems to be the standard philosophy for men coming off a breakup.
Jax: Well, it's a wonderful way to live, all the same.
Leyla: I agree, but Jax, you're not even divorced yet.
Jax: Yes, but my marriage is over.
Spinelli: He's a widower. He lost his wife six years ago.
Maxie: That's sad.
Spinelli: Yeah, he gardens. He enjoys going down to the city, mostly to see the opera. He has a -- a very demanding career but wants to share his free time with a companion.
Carly: Sounds lonely.
Maxie: Well, maybe you can cheer him up.
Carly: I hope burnbabyburn meets someone spectacular, but it won't be me.
Spinelli: Okay, well, the next candidate is also a widower, 20 matches. He's rich, and a dream date is a tour of Wall Street.
Maxie: Hmm, sellhighthensplit.
Spinelli: Yeah, excellent advice.
Carly: I don't need to date or marry for money. I just want someone I can relax with.
Maxie: Besides, any bachelor, no matter how rich he is, isn't going to be as cute as Jax.
Leyla: You know, I have been involved in a rebound relationship once before. Never again. So thanks for the champagne and the flowers. And I guess I'll see you around.
Spinelli: Okay, last candidate.
Maxie: Successful attorney, divorced, loves to travel --
Carly: What's his name?
Spinelli: Has a nice ring, don't you think?
Carly: Oh, God, delete that.
Spinelli: I'm sorry. The Jackal fails to see the cause for the Valkyrie immediate dislike.
Carly: Attorney, divorced, arrogant enough to call himself a hottie, and his first name's Scottie?
Maxie: Baldwin, Scott Baldwin? Oh, my God --
Spinelli: Oh, my God. The prickly prosecutor. Oh, abort, abort. Delete, delete, delete. I'm so sorry.
Laura: I don't blame you for doubting it. I mean, why wouldn't you? You were having those visions you were having those visions of Logan for weeks, and -- and they weren't real. I actually think it's a good sign that you questioned my recovery.
Lulu: I just needed you so much, I thought I dreamed you up.
Laura: No, the truth is, you're helping me as much as I'm helping you.
Lulu: I'm not sure about that.
Laura: No, it's true. It is true. But I think that maybe it isn't fair of me to ask you to keep such a huge secret, especially when you've got all this other stress in your life.
Lulu: Please don't worry about that.
Laura: I know that I'm being a little selfish, but I really would like to keep it just between us just for a little bit longer. I don't know how we'll ever explain it to Lucky and Nikolas, or to Luke, but -- I don't know. Maybe I'm just a coward.
Lulu: You're the bravest person I know.
Noah: How's the pain?
Matt: I can deal.
Noah: Has the attendant spoken to you yet?
Matt: What do you want?
Noah: Has he told you about the extent of your injuries?
Matt: Yeah, I'm in ICU. I have head trauma and third-degree burns. My internal injury is from smoke inhalation. I can feel my legs, but I wish I couldnít.
Noah: Yeah, you're going to need a skin graft.
Matt: It's a little late in the game to be showing concern, don't you think, Dad?
Sam: Thank you. Thank you so much for coming over here. I needed to be around a sane person. So, did you get any results back on the clinic fire?
Lucky: Yeah, we confirmed it was arson.
Sam: Okay. Fine. I just know that Jerry's behind it.
Lucky: Then shouldn't you tell Alexis?
Sam: Should I? Well, yeah, I guess in a rational world, I would tell Alexis. Absolutely. But my mother doesn't trust me already, especially around men. And if I tell her that I feel something negative about jerry, I better be able to have something to back it up.
Lucky: Then you can't keep playing him indefinitely. I mean, if this whole thing blows up in your face before we catch him --
Sam: Listen, my mother is a fair person in her own way, okay? And if I tell her that I suspect Jerry, then she's going to want to go to him, get his side of the story, and he's not going to react well to being double-crossed. If he thinks that he is a suspect, he is going to start covering his tracks, and we just -- we may never catch him.
Lucky: Yeah. We should never have gotten involved in this.
Sam: Just hold me. Tight, please. We're going to get through this.
Alexis: John Zacchara has been found not guilty. My children are safe. Scott Baldwin hasn't called me for, I'd say, seven-and-a-half hours. So as distracted as I was this afternoon, tonight, I'm all yours.
Jerry: Well, it's an enticing offer, indeed.
Jerry: Um, well, I'm not entirely sure how to approach this.
Alexis: This can't be good.
Jerry: Well, I need to be honest, which in itself is quite unnerving.
Alexis: Do I need to call a lawyer? Are you going to confess something? Should I recuse myself?
Jerry: No, no, no. This has nothing to do with any of that. It's -- it's about Sam.
Alexis: I'm listening.
Jerry: I've -- I've made excuses for her showing up repeatedly, especially, well, since we're together, and it's happened several times, and it's escalating.
Alexis: Hmm. I've noticed that.
Jerry: Yes, she's invited me to her apartment on several occasions, and, you know, I don't want for you to revisit, you know, old history between you and her, but I think Samís coming on to me.
Carly: I'm not so sure about this whole internet dating thing.
Spinelli: Come on. The Valkyrie has to keep an open mind.
Carly: How did I match up with two widowers, a cheating husband, and Scottie Baldwin?
Maxie: Well, we don't know for sure that it was Scott Baldwin.
Spinelli: Yeah, I mean, no system is perfect.
Maxie: You have to be realistic, Carly. Guys like Jax, they come along once in a lifetime. So whoever you're with next will probably have to be a compromise.
Kate: Thanks for coming over. I didn't know who else to call.
Max: Boy-toy -- that's what she called me, it was her boy-toy.
Kate: It's been a recurrent theme.
Max: I thought we had something real. I thought I mattered.
Kate: Uh, I think he and Diane had some sort of misunderstanding. I'm not quite sure how I fit in, or why he would show up here.
Max: I was nothing to her. A passing fancy, a temporary amusement. And why? Because I wanted to mind my own business.
Sonny: Max --
Max: Shh. Do I seem like a boy-toy to you?
Sonny: You had a fight with Diane?
Max: Boss, she broke up with me, and I didn't even do anything.
Sonny: I just saw Diane earlier with Jason --
Max: Wait, wait, wait. Diane broke up with me to be with Jason? Oh.
Diane: Name me one thing more invigorating than shutting down a bunch of small-town politicians with a good presentation, strong arguments, and a silent but terrifying client. You have to admit, we were brilliant.
Jason: They are going to give us everything that we want.
Diane: Well, of course they did. Oh, come on, Jason, the city council should be grateful that you're even interested in renovating that section of the piers. The whole project is going to make the area safer, more commercial. It won't cost a dime of the taxpayers' money.
Jason: You were, uh -- you were good with the mayor.
Diane: Yeah, yeah. Well, I know a guilty man when I see one. The man is ripe for an affair, if he isn't all ready having one or two -- or 17. A dog.
Jason: Oh, yeah. He agreed to everything. Why -- why are you mad at him?
Diane: I just feel like he's up to something. And he was especially nervous around you.
Jason: I'm used to that.
Diane: You're right. You're absolutely right. There is nothing to worry about. So now it's time for me to go home and make a good strong martini, relish my solitude, and hit the internet. There is no better cure for heartbreak than shopping for shoes online in the middle of the night, and I have seen the most delicious pair of slingbacks. What's that?
Jason: Graciella found it when she cleaned the office.
Diane: It's Maxís. He must have lost it the night we -- he was devastated when he lost it. I got it for him for our three-and-a-half week anniversary.
Nikolas: Okay, so I ordered some roasted chicken for dinner. What are you doing?
Nadine: Where's the vacuum?
Nikolas: The what?
Nadine: Vacuum cleaner. It's a machine. It's picks up dust and crumbs, sometimes it has a big hose or a bag. On wheels, and you push it or pull it. It makes a lot of noise.
Nikolas: I'm sorry. I have no idea.
Nadine: Well, I need one. I got cookie crumbs all over the place, and no offense to your cleaning lady, but there's a bunch of dust bunnies under that chair.
Nikolas: Dust what? What's a dust bunny?
Nadine: I never know when you're teasing.
Nikolas: I'll tell you what. I'll tell Alfred, and he'll take care of everything. How's that?
Nadine: Oh, I hope I didn't get Alfred into trouble.
Nikolas: No, no, of course not. In fact, he may have said something about the maid being on vacation. She usually does all the cleaning on this floor.
Nadine: I -- I'm not complaining. I just didn't want to leave a mess.
Nikolas: No, no. But see, the idea here is for you to get some rest while my staff takes care of you. You understand?
Nadine: Yeah, I don't know if I was meant to be waited on.
Nikolas: Well, could you get used to it, just for me?
Laura: Honey, are you all right?
Lulu: Yeah, I'm -- I don't know, I'm just a little disappointed. Johnny came to see me earlier today. But Lainey made me go to group, and when I came back, Johnny was gone.
Laura: You expected him to wait?
Lulu: Yeah. I mean, after everything that we've been through -- yeah, I would. I mean, I probably shouldn't worry, though. He left me a note and said that he loved me and he didn't want to interfere with my recovery.
Laura: Well, then, maybe it's best that you don't see him for awhile, and you just focus on that recovery.
Lulu: That's exactly what Lucky said. I will be so happy when the doctors pronounce me sane, so that Lucky and Nikolas will stop fighting about me and Johnny.
Laura: Your brothers are fighting?
Lulu: Well, Nikolas understands that I love Johnny, and Lucky wants me to stay away from him.
Laura: Honey, is it possible that maybe Lucky is right, and as much as you love this boy, Johnny, that maybe he isn't good for you?
Kate: Okay, Max, one more cup, all right? It will make you feel better.
Max: This doesn't make any sense.
Sonny: You got to eat, Max. Because if you don't eat, it's not good for you.
Kate: I only have lettuce.
Sonny: You have lettuce?
Max: Diane likes lettuce. Why do women always like lettuce? And why couldn't I see it when it was right in front of me? It must have started last summer. Diane defended Jason at his trial. I mean, who knows how many hours they spent together?
Sonny: Okay, Ja -- Jason is not involved with Diane, Max. Come on.
Max: Wait, wait, wait. Suddenly it makes sense. It explains why -- it explains why Diane likes Jason better. She always yells at you. She never yells at Jason. Oh, no, not that guy. And Jason couldn't wait to boot me out of there.
Sonny: You quit.
Max: What choice did I have?
Sonny: Well, you -- you said to me that, you know, you missed working for me, or were you lying to me?
Max: No, I mean, Jason made sure of that.
Max: And also he could get his hands on her.
Kate: All right, Max, look, I know Diane very well. She adores you.
Max: She's a good liar. I mean, I'll give her that. And she is a lawyer, after all.
Sonny: Max, Max, Max, you got to understand something. You know, Diane was probably just upset because she broke up with you, and Jason was comforting her.
Max: You know what you walked in on. Don't sugarcoat it for me, okay? It was my mistake. I should have kept my eye on the prize. That's what Diane did. You know what? That's what I'm going to do.
Sonny: No, no, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Give me your keys.
Sonny: Give me your keys. You're not driving anywhere.
Max: No, no, no. I'm not driving. My brother's driving. He better drive fast, because I'm going to go get the woman of my dreams.
Kate: Um, he means Diane, right?
Sonny: Well, I hope he finds the woman of his dreams, because, uh, I have.
Carly: So, what you're telling me is this is basically hopeless.
Spinelli: Fear not brave, but brokenhearted Valkyrie for one savoir suitor remains, and you match in almost every category.
Maxie: Spinelli, no, no, I don't think that's who Carly had in mind.
Carly: Who is it? Danger dude?
Noah: I'm not here to make excuses.
Matt: Just leave.
Noah: Look, your mother and I reached a decision that I would provide child support and -- and pay for some of your education.
Matt: What is that? Hmm? What is that, like $5,000? Because that probably didn't pay for two days of medical school.
Noah: We made this agreement before you were even born. Like I said, I provide financial support on the condition that I never -- I never make any contact with you. I more than kept my side of the bargain, believe me.
Matt: Yeah. Okay. So then, just go away. Just go. You didn't want me then, and I don't need you now.
Noah: Look, you're badly injured and you need surgery. I can help you.
Matt: I don't want to ever take a damn thing from you.
Noah: This is not the time to argue about this.
Matt: Get me another doctor, would you?
Noah: Look, you can be as angry as you want, but I'm still your father.
Jason: Diane pushed the whole redevelopment project through the city council. It was, I mean, it was great. She did a -- she did a great job. She kept --
Carly: It only validates what I've known for years. Don't know why I needed the internet.
Jason: Yeah, it is Carly, Bernie. Good guess. I -- I'll call you back.
Carly: You know, I should have known better than to even consider doing the internet thing, but it was better than watching Jax on that stupid --
Jason: You know what, Spinelli was trying to help you out in his own --
Carly: It was a total disaster. You should have seen the men that e-mailed. I'm pretty sure one was Scottie Baldwin. When all along, there was one man that matched up 24 out of 25 times on the compatibility quiz.
Jason: So who was the poor guy?
Sonny: You want to know what I did?
Sonny: I went over to Jason's to invite him to the wedding.
Sonny: Not long ago, you know, he would have been the best man.
Kate: Well, Mike is excited --
Kate: That he gets to be the best man. It's nice to have family at the wedding.
Sonny: What about your family?
Kate: Well, no one from my family will be there, I can assure you.
Sonny: But that's not a good thing. No, I'm just -- you know, it isnít.
Kate: What are we going to do? I made my choices. There's no going back, right? Anyway, let's review the seating arrangements.
Sonny: All right. You know what? As long as you put people where they're not fist fighting, I'm happy.
Kate: I could really use your help.
Sonny: I got a meeting.
Kate: Couldn't you reschedule?
Sonny: No, because I -- I -- it's important. I got to -- I got to -- I got to be there now.
Lulu: Mom? Mom? Mom.
Laura: It's okay, honey. I was just resting.
Lulu: I know, I know, but I am scared that I'm going to come in here and you're not going to wake up.
Laura: Well, I suppose that could happen. But I don't think it will. I -- I feel different this time.
Lulu: Well, good. I'm glad.
Laura: But, honey, I've been thinking a lot about us, and I think that it's really not fair of me to ask you to keep such a huge secret, especially if your brothers are fighting with each other, and you've got this situation going on with Johnny. And I think you need your family more than ever right now. So I think it's time. We should tell Lucky and Nikolas that I -- that I woke up.
Nadine: It's not that difficult to do chores on crutches. I mean, it takes a little longer, but they get done. And I was lucky that all I got out of it was a broken leg.
Nikolas: From falling off of a hay truck?
Nadine: Yeah, well, it was pretty late into the night, and my brother warned me to stop stacking so quickly, but I wouldn't listen. I just wanted to finish. Anyway, that broken leg was a lot worse than a little smoke inhalation.
Nikolas: So what you're saying is, you're immune to pain.
Nadine: I'm not in pain, except when I cough. And I definitely don't need to be pampered.
Nikolas: I disagree with you.
Nadine: Why'd you stay with me at the hospital? And why'd you bring me back here? I mean, I thought maybe we were on to something before the fire, but it seems like something's changed.
Nikolas: Yeah. Um, I don't know, when I -- when I pulled you out of -- out of the building and I thought I was too late, and you weren't breathing, I -- look, I don't know, I -- I guess -- I don't quite know what's going on, but I know that something's going on, something good.
Nadine: I don't know what to say, for once.
