Lulu: Don't misunderstand me. I think it's great that you want to tell Nikolas and Lucky about your recovery, but this morning, you were so positive that you weren't ready. So, what changed?
Sam: If I don't stop Jerry, a lot of people are going to get hurt here.
Lucky: Let's pull the evidence we have so far together, okay?
Lucky: I'll sit with Mac, and maybe I can get enough manpower on the case.
Sam: No, no, no, no, Lucky. The more people that about this, the bigger chance that Jerry's going to figure this out.
Lucky: I donít like where this is going, Sam. I don't want to shake your confidence, but I'm afraid you might get hurt.
[Knock at door]
Sam: Hey, come on in, please.
Sam: I hope I didn't say anything that would, kind of -- at the office.
Alexis: What? No, no, not at all.
Sam: Okay. Can I get you a glass of wine or something to drink?
Alexis: No. Sam, I don't know how to approach this, and I really -- I don't want to interfere in your life, but the last time something came up I didn't say anything, it turned into a disaster.
Sam: I'm sorry. Look, just say whatever is that you're going to say.
Alexis: Are you coming on to Jerry?
Carly: According to this online dating program, you and I are soul mates.
Jason: I told Spinelli I didn't anything to do with this.
Carly: Oh, don't get mad at him. I'm sure he just did it because he cares.
Jason: No, he did it because he does whatever Maxie wants him to do.
Carly: Spinelli knows you well enough to give you an accurate profile. Out of 25 compatibility points, there's only one where you and I don't match. Guess which one?
Kate: Well, I've never seen a more classic example of male avoidance, the way you've come up with this mysterious errand you have to run just so you can avoid helping me with the wedding.
Sonny: It's important.
Kate: Sonny, I am not asking you to arrange flowers. I am asking you to help me with the seating chart, which is critical. If we put the wrong person at the wrong table, it would all blow up in our face.
Sonny: Okay, would it help you if I trust you completely with it?
Kate: You better trust me.
Sonny: You're right. You know what? Looking at that chart just makes my skin... crawl. But, listen, I do -- I really do, and I know you're going to get upset, but -- I got someplace I've got to go.
Kate: You're starting to scare me.
Noah: I'm not here to pretend that you and I share anything more than DNA.
Matt: Yeah, well, why should now be any different than the rest of my life?
Noah: You're still my son.
Patrick: Did I just -- Matt Hunter is your son?
Lulu: Has something happened? Are you -- are you starting to feel tired?
Laura: No, don't be afraid. There's nothing to be worried about. I mean, it's not like I feel myself fading away and I want to see your brothers. That's not it at all.
Lulu: So what changed?
Laura: It's just that I don't think it's fair of me to ask you to keep this secret anymore. And it's not fair to your brothers either. I think I've been selfish, and it's time to stop. Unless you think it's a mistake.
Lulu: You're asking me?
Laura: After everything we've been through together, there's no one whose judgment I would trust more. If you think I should wait to tell your brothers, then I will.
Carly: Go ahead, Jason, guess how we're not compatible?
Jason: No, thanks.
Carly: It's fun. Guess how we don't match?
Jason: You talk all the time and I donít.
Carly: True. But that means we're compatible. It would be a disaster if we sat there and stared at each other, just in silence.
Jason: Well, maybe we should try that right now.
Carly: Oh, come on. Guess again.
Jason: You have a real problem with logic.
Carly: And you are a linear thinker. Again, perfect balance. Right here.
Jason: You make stuff up all the time.
Carly: If that's your way of calling me a liar, I'm going to try not to be offended. Although true. Whereas, you are incapable of anything but the truth, which is why you don't say much. Again, a way we are perfectly matched. The chart says it right here. In all the areas we're supposed to be alike -- let's see, risk taking, physical activity, personal loyalty -- we match on every level. There's only one place we don't match.
Jason: I don't care. And I don't want to hear it.
Carly: Yes, you do.
Jason: No, you can keep talking as long as you want. I'm not going to listen.
Carly: We're stubborn. I know I'm right. You think you are. Right there is why we can never be in a romantic relationship.
Carly: We would constantly clash because each of us thinks we know best. It's sad when you think about it. If it weren't for your tiny little personality flaw, we would be a perfect match.
Sonny: What I have to do has nothing to do with the mob.
Kate: Mm-hmm, but you were at Jasonís.
Sonny: Yes, I was, because I went over to Jason's to ask him to come to the wedding.
Kate: So is he coming?
Sonny: I don't know. Because, when I got there, Diane was sobbing in his arms, and I don't know what he would have said if we were alone.
Kate: Mm-hmm, but you want him to come.
Sonny: You know, him and I are more than friends. We're like brothers. So not having him at the wedding, it just shows how much our lives have changed.
Kate: It's hard, huh?
Kate: Leaving your past behind.
Sonny: You did it.
Kate: And I didn't know what it would cost me.
Kate: I have no regrets, Sonny, right? Because of all of my choices brought me here.
Kate: Brought me to you.
Kate: What? What? Look, I just -- memories come up sometimes, all right? Unexpected memories, like, I don't know. My last Thanksgiving in Bensonhurst.
Sonny: That was a long time ago.
Kate: Yeah, it was a long time ago. It was my senior year at Princeton. All right, it was just, you know, your typical Falconeri crazy Thanksgiving.
Kate: Uncle Nicky had one too many, as usual. Olivia was arguing with her parents about some boyfriend. Some latest boyfriend. I think it was a plumber's apprentice.
Kate: Big catch. And then there was Auntie Talia, sobbing her eyes out because someone criticized her lasagna.
Kate: I don't know. I just looked around and I just thought, this is my last Thanksgiving with them. Where I wanted to be and who they were weren't compatible.
Sonny: You always knew what you wanted.
Kate: Mm-hmm. So the next year, when I was eating a turkey sandwich in my apartment in Manhattan, alone, I had to say to myself, "Look, this is your choice. This is the first step, and you better get used to it."
Sonny: Did you?
Kate: Sure. No, what? What am I going to do? Everybody's scattered now, right? Or dead. I don't have any regrets, Sonny. Okay?
Sonny: You know what? Whatever you want to do this Thanksgiving, I will give it to you.
Kate: I don't want you to worry about me. Besides, I'm going to be worried about you without Michael and Morgan, and I'm sure that Alexis will find some excuse not to have Kristina in town.
Sonny: Probably. Looks like it's you, me, and Mike, just eating Mac and cheese at Kelleyís.
Kate: What are you talking about, Mr. Cook?
Sonny: No, it's -- well, Mike and I, we cooked this huge pig once, and we almost went to blows, so you don't want to go there.
Kate: It doesn't sound pretty.
Kate: Okay. I know you have that errand.
Sonny: Yeah, do me a favor?
Kate: Ahem. First --
Kate: You stay out of trouble.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah. Of course. Uh, do me a favor, okay? Do not sit Alexis and Ric at the same table. Because it will get ugly. Okay?
Kate: All right, boss.
Sonny: All right. I'll see you.
Sam: Well, I have spent some time with Jerry recently.
Alexis: Why? Why? You don't like him. You have nothing but the lowest opinion of him.
Sam: Okay, this is what I was thinking. I was thinking that since you think so highly of him, that I would give him the benefit of the doubt.
Alexis: So you wanted to get to know him better?
Sam: Uh --
Alexis: He said that you made the initial overture.
Sam: What? Jerry said that I hit on him?
Alexis: Yeah, he did. Look, I don't know who hit on what. I don't want to know. I just -- whatever it is that you two are doing, I need you to stop. Okay? Thank you.
Sam: Oh, I hate that bastard Jerry.
Patrick: How long have you known that he's your father?
Matt: All my life. Oh, let me guess. You didn't know.
Noah: Say what you have to say.
Patrick: Did Mom know?
Noah: Unless she hid it from me, she had no idea. Your mother knew I hadn't always been faithful, but we had worked it out between us. When Matt's mom Donna turned up pregnant, I made a side deal with her that I would financially support Matt until he was 18.
Patrick: Oh, a side deal, so you paid her to go away?
Noah: Well, if you want to call it that. She actually got a job offer in Albuquerque when Matt was still a baby.
Patrick: How many times did he try and get in touch with you?
Matt: Counting today? Once.
Patrick: You son of a bitch.
Patrick: So you're just another egotistical surgeon who can't keep his pants zipped.
Noah: Well, you're just real happy to rush to judgment, aren't you?
Patrick: You make me sick.
Matt: Is this one of those warm and fuzzy moments I missed by not having you as my dad?
Noah: Did you come to Port Charles to see me, or to meet Patrick?
Matt: Don't flatter yourself. I had a fellowship.
Noah: You knew we were both here.
Matt: I was curious. I'm not now.
Noah: Any apology I can make is years too late and wouldn't make a difference anyway.
Anna: Hi. Sorry. Am I interrupting? You could cut this atmosphere with a knife. I don't know how good that is for the patient.
Noah: Yeah, I was just leaving.
Matt: Watch. Watch, he's good at this.
Noah: I didn't say anything to you before because I wanted to talk to Matt first.
Matt: Well, thank you for the consideration.
Noah: Matt's my son.
Patrick: Page Dr. Wallace, please.
Elizabeth: He's not expected for another hour.
Patrick: That's why doctors have pagers, isn't it?
Elizabeth: I'll be happy to find Dr. Wallace for you, Dr. Drake. And, now, why don't you take a timeout and deal with whatever's eating at you.
Patrick: Sorry. Can you just let me know when he gets here, please?
Robin: Hey, you.
Robin: So, I have been giving some thought to our baby's last name.
Patrick: You know, Robin, it's not a good time right now.
Robin: What's wrong?
Patrick: Well, I just found out I have a brother.
Max: Mrs. C. Hi. I was waiting for you.
Carly: Is everything okay, Max?
Max: Well, I -- I heard about you and Mr. Jacks, and that it was -- well, that it was over. Is it? Is that right?
Carly: What are you trying to say?
Max: Well. As it turns out, chances might have it, I'm also free at the moment.
Carly: Well, what happened to you and Diane?
Max: Things didn't work out. It happens. Diane chose someone else. Someone more important than me.
Carly: Who's more important than you, Max?
Carly: Jason? Jason and Diane? Oh, come on. That doesn't make any sense.
Max: Well, someone we know and trust saw them together, which means I'm officially free to move on now. I sort of -- I was hoping that, you know, I've always had the greatest respect for you. And we're both unattached. Would you go out with me, Mrs. C.?
Carly: Uh, well, you know, I think you should give yourself a little bit of time to adjust since you guys just broke up.
Max: Why prolong the agony?
Carly: Why don't we set up something for next week? After we both have a little bit of time to --
Max: No, tonight. Well, all I meant was that, you know, this is my first night without her and you don't have him, and why should either of us be alone?
Alexis: Listen, I came to talk to you about you, and to see about your broken heart.
Diane: Oh. That would imply that I gave a big galoot of a man some sort of power over me. Not in this lifetime.
Alexis: So you don't want to talk about it? Okay, do you mind if I talk about something? No, I don't want to be selfish.
Diane: Of course, you do.
Alexis: You're right. So, did I mention to you that, it was about two years ago, that I discovered that Sam was my daughter?
Diane: Wow. We are going back.
Alexis: Do you remember if I said anything -- did I mention anything about the fact that I walked in on Sam and Ric having sex?
Diane: No, you --
Alexis: That was right after I found out that I had cancer.
Diane: Icky. Why -- Alexis, why are we rehashing ancient, devastating history?
Alexis: There's a possibility --
Diane: Say it. Spit it out.
Alexis: Jerry said something to me, and Sam didn't actually deny it. Do you think there's any chance that history could be repeating itself?
Diane: Are you saying that your daughter is hitting on your new man?
Sam: Tell me how come nothing is ever easy with me and Alexis.
Lucky: You're asking the wrong guy. I can't remember the last time my dad and I saw eye to eye. We're just different.
Sam: Yeah, different. I mean, obviously that's it. Because even when we mean well, Alexis and I, we wind up on opposite sides. It's not like I can blame her for being suspicious because sleeping with Ric was probably the worst mistake I ever made. And now Jerry has set me up to make it look like that I'm pursuing him. As if I would ever, ever hurt her like that again.
Lucky: Then defend yourself.
Lucky: Sam, you need to let Alexis know that it was Jerry who was coming on to you. Not the other way around.
Sam: No, Lucky. I need to keep this going long enough until I get evidence against him.
Lucky: I know you mean well, Sam, but it's not -- it's not working. Jerry's turning your best intentions against you.
Sam: No, Jerry has just raised the stakes, and I am not backing down until I expose him for the slime that he is.
Robin: I don't believe this. Matt knew the entire time that he was your brother, and he didn't say anything?
Patrick: Yeah. And so did my father. Do you remember when Eli Love's son came here, and he refused to acknowledge or accept him, and I thought -- we all thought what scum he was?
Patrick: Well, it turns out my dad's the same way.
Robin: Did he, at least, try to explain himself?
Patrick: What's there to explain? He cheated on my mother, apparently more than once. Had a son. And Matt Hunter is that son. And now my brother is lying in I.C.U. I can't believe I just said "my brother."
Robin: I'm sorry. This is crazy.
Patrick: Pretty amazing gene pool I come from, huh? No wonder you don't want to marry me.
Sonny: How you doing?
Bartender: Can't complain. What can I get you?
Sonny: Yeah, can you get --uh, scotch on the rocks? Good stuff?
Man: Nice threads.
Sonny: Thank you.
Man: You were always a flashy dresser, Sonny. You don't have a clue, do you?
Sonny: Paulie Rinaldi. Oh, my goodness.
Paulie: You remember me.
Sonny: How you doing? How can I forget? We spent more time in detention than in class. How -- how are you?
Paulie: Not as good as you, if that suit's any indication.
Paulie: Maybe I shouldn't have quit working with Joe Scully after all. You had the good sense to stick it out.
Sonny: Well, I'm not sure that was good sense.
Paulie: You were always more ambitious than me, Sonny. Not that I'm doing badly.
Paulie: I took over my father's body shop when the old man retired.
Sonny: You doing anything on the side?
Paulie: Any chop shop stuff?
Sonny: Well, I don't know.
Paulie: I don't know -- nah, I had offers. I promised Mary-Therese, you know, that I'd go straight.
Sonny: Mary-Therese? Really?
Paulie: Coming up on our 25th anniversary. You know what that makes me?
Paulie: Old. Nah, man. And lucky, and lucky. I got three kids. Paulie, Jr. Works with me. Frannie's in college.
Paulie: And my youngest boy is the starting quarterback at St. Ignatius.
Paulie: You got kids?
Sonny: Yeah. I got two boys. I got a girl. Younger than yours. Can I tell you something? I never thought I would run into anybody from the past.
Paulie: Nah. You know, you haven't been gone that long. Although some of those guys we came up with, you know those goombahs, those low-level mobsters? They didn't make it. That's why I'm -- you know, I'm glad I got out.
Sonny: It looks like you had the good sense.
Paulie: Well, I had no choice. Mary-Therese would have killed me.
Sonny: Let me tell you something. Sometimes when you find the right woman at the right time, it changes your life.
Kate's voice: I was supposed to be in the city today. I had tickets to a real Broadway play. I know it's like the 85th incarnation of "A Chorus Line," but it's my first time. I mean, a story of how people come from nothing and realize their dreams. It's perfect. But it was also Oliviaís birthday so I did what a good girl does and showed up at Uncle Nickyís for her party. Everyone was there. Except Olivia, who ditched as usual.
[Knock at door]
Kate: Hold on. Hold on. I'll be right there. Coming.
Kate: Mike. You didn't have to come all the way here.
Mike: Well, you know, I'm so happy that the wedding is back on because that gives me an excuse to come see my future daughter-in-law.
Mike: So, what do you need?
Kate: Uh -- okay. It's a little awkward, Mike. I don't want to offend you, okay. But Giselle is my maid of honor. You know, Giselle, the editor of "Couture."
Mike: Honey, if she doesn't edit a racing form, I probably haven't read it, okay.
Kate: All right. Well, see, here's the thing. She's coming in from Paris, and wedding etiquette dictates that the maid of honor sits next to the best man. Honestly, Mike, you'd be bored to tears. She would have so much more to talk to with Jax about, and I -- I don't want to offend you.
Mike: Honey, I don't care if Giselle doesn't, but I've heard enough to know that she is your rival, not your friend. Isn't there someone else you'd rather have as maid of honor?
Kate: You may have not of heard, but I don't have very many female friends. It's times like this that I realize it's kind of sad. But I have no regrets because I am marrying the man that I love. And Sonny is the only person I need to see at the altar. And you. I need to see you, too.
Mike: Truth. I expect to be bumped as best man.
Kate: Mike, why on earth would you say that?
Mike: Because if Sonny had his way, he'd patch things up with Jason because Jason is the one who should be best man.
Jason: Sit down.
Spinelli: I sense you are displeased.
Jason: Sit down.
Spinelli: You know, the Jackal fears he's over-exerted himself. Perhaps a return to casa de Stone Cold and a nap --
Jason: I'm telling you that you need to stop.
Spinelli: You're -- you know, you're right. Obviously, you can see the pain that I'm experiencing. Amazingly --
Jason: Did you out private information about me online?
Spinelli: Not really. Your true identity was scrupulously protected.
Jason: Did Maxie put you up to this?
Spinelli: It was initially the insightful Maximista's suggestion, but I came to see the wisdom in her plan.
Jason: I told you not to do it.
Spinelli: With all due admiration and respect, it's time for Stone Cold to realize how much he misses the maternal one.
Jason: Okay. What does any of this have to do with Elizabeth?
Spinelli: It was the Jackal's hope that failure to find a romantic connection via the wonders of cyber dating would convince Stone Cold that the maternal one is his true match.
Lulu: It would be selfish to keep you all to myself longer than I already have.
Laura: But you needed me. You were going through such a horrible time, and I will always be grateful that I was here to help you.
Lulu: You are the reason I am not in one of the padded rooms here.
Laura: I'm very proud of you, Lulu. The way you came through all of this.
Lulu: I'm doing better now, and I don't need you undivided attention. I know how much it will mean to Lucky and Nikolas to see you awake and be able to talk to you. I want them to share in our happiness. We're a family.
Laura: All right then, let's call the boys. I think you're right. I think it is time for us all to be together again.
Carly: I always wondered if you played sports, Max.
Max: I used to.
Carly: Let me guess, football.
Max: Football's for sissies. I'm a rugby man.
Carly: I don't know anything about rugby.
Max: Yeah, nobody does.
Carly: Can you pass the salt?
Max: Mm. Ah, Diane's a big baseball fan. She knows more about team stats than any woman I've ever met.
Carly: Diane's very smart.
Max: And pretty. Uh, well, so are you, of course.
Carly: Why don't you tell me what happened between you and Diane?
Max: I swear, I don't know. We had a little disagreement. She accused me of cheating on her, and then she says we're finished.
Carly: Did you cheat on her?
Max: No. Besides, we never agreed to be exclusive.
Max: But somehow, once I was with Diane, I didn't want to see anyone else. Uh -- present company excluded, of course.
Carly: I know that I hold a very special place in your heart, but anyone with eyes could see how important Diane is to you.
Max: I never expected to fall for Ms. Miller. I can't believe she dumped me.
Carly: Well, according to Spinelli's online dating service, high strung women should be paired with very rational, grounded men. So you and Diane are a perfect match. That's why Jax and I were so wonderful together.
Max: Huh. I always thought Ms. Miller was very grounded. What am I going to do, Mrs. C?
Carly: First of all, stop calling me Mrs. C. My name's Carly. I haven't been Mrs. C in a long time. I don't know what name I'm going to use now.
Max: This is terrible. Here I am talking about myself, and you've got your own problems.
Carly: One thing is very clear. This date was a waste of time.
Max: No, I'm -- I'm enjoying myself here.
Carly: No, you're not. You're miserable. We both are. And as you're friend -- and I am your friend -- I'm gonna give you some advice. Follow your heart. You know what you have to do.
Diane: As my friend Claire used to say, "All men is dogs."
Alexis: Nope, just the ones we pick. I just don't know what to think about this. You don't think there's any -- not even the littlest possibility that Jerry's being honest?
Diane: Are you seriously going to use Jerry and honest in the same sentence?
Alexis: No, no. I'd just really like to believe that there may be a little different side to him.
Diane: Yes, well, I wanted to believe the same thing about Max, and now I know better. But I digress -- okay, so you're daughter is making sexual overtures to your boyfriend. Do you consider Jerry to be your boyfriend?
Alexis: No -- no. I -- you know what concerns me here, is Sam. I just want to make sure she's not still angry at me for giving her up for adoption.
Diane: So what if she is? Her actions towards Jerry are still woefully inappropriate. Unless, of course, it is Jerry who's lying.
Alexis: Jerry lies about everything, but he just doesn't have any reason to lie about this.
Diane: Men by their nature lie. And cheat with younger, hotter women.
Alexis: Is this supposed to be helping?
Diane: It's a blow to the ego, yes. But once you admit it, you can move on, avoid any emotional entanglements, and use the man of your choice as the good lord sees fit. Then kick him out of bed before breakfast.
Alexis: I can see this attitude is working wonders for you. You don't miss Max at all, do you?
Diane: I refuse to get tied up in knots over any man.
Alexis: Too late.
Diane: Look, a casual affair can be stimulating, but do not kid yourself that it is real or lasting.
Alexis: So when did Max break up with you?
Diane: I broke up with him. I allowed myself to get carried away with a little fling, and now I have moved on and I've cut my losses. And you need to get up and open another bottle of my very fine wine.
Jerry: I was surprised when you called me.
Sam: I'm sure that you can probably guess why I asked you to come over here.
Jerry: Because I'm irresistible?
Sam: No, I mean, yeah, but it was actually quite a story that you told Alexis how I came on to you.
Jerry: Oh, was there an angry confrontation between mother and daughter?
Sam: No, there wasn't, actually. She was hurt and really disappointed. And if your agenda was to let her think that I am an irredeemable slut, then I guess congratulations are in order.
Jerry: Well there's an easy way out. You could tell Alexis the truth. You could tell her I pursued you, then cut me out of your life. Problem solved.
Sam: Well, what if I don't want to do that?
Anna: How is Patrick handling this?
Robin: I don't know. Just when he made peace with his dad, then this comes up.
Anna: Hmm. I don't want to judge Noah or anything, but he's done some stupid things in his life. I think that he's a good man now underneath it all.
Robin: Well, Patrick thinks that this is why I don't want to marry him, because he's going to turn into another version of his father.
Anna: Is that what's stopping you?
Noah: Okay, do you want to talk about this?
Patrick: There's nothing to talk about. It's none of my business.
Noah: Patrick, I understand you're angry; I'd rather face that --
Patrick: Wait, you understand? You know what? I understand that every night that you were supposedly out saving lives, you were really just banging nurses and making kids that you didn't want.
Noah: I loved your mother, and I love you.
Patrick: Well, you have a funny way of showing it.
Noah: Look, I can't change the past. I'm not proud of what I did. When you're over the shock, we have to talk about this.
Patrick: You want absolution, go to church! Or you know what? Dive into another bottle. But Matt did it fine without you, and I'm sure I can, too.
Matt: Looks like news of my family reunion has spread, not that it's any of your business.
Robin: Maybe not. But you are my little girl's uncle -- the only one she has. Unless there's something you're not telling me.
Anna: What? Oh, well, I can't vouch for your father, but you're my only living child.
Robin: See? You're not the only one with a crazy family.
Matt: Look, I'm not interested in Sunday dinners with the clan, okay? I don't do warm and fuzzy.
Robin: Okay, well, we're not talking about adopting a kitten here. All I'm saying is that you're blood. And on a certain level, that matters, so do you need anything?
Matt: I need a break. Really, Dr. Scorpio, you've never had a use for me before, so please don't start now.
Patrick: Hey, treat Robin with respect.
Matt: Or what?
Robin: It's fine.
Patrick: No, it's not okay. What do you want from us, Dr. Hunter?
Matt: Nothing. Absolutely nothing. That's what none of you people seem to get. If I wanted to come here and meet my -- Noah Drake or any of you, I would've just walked up and introduced myself.
Spinelli: It was also hard to miss the unhappy mien on the maternal one as she departed casa de Stone Cold, and you've been even more silent than usual on the subject.
Jason: When you told Elizabeth that I was having an affair with Karpov's attorney --
Spinelli: Oh, God, I apologize for --
Jason: Okay, she -- she wants me to be with her, okay? Elizabeth wants me to meet her in secret. She's willing to lie to be with me. I tell her that there's too much at risk, and she's willing to take that chance.
Spinelli: Isn't that her choice to make?
Jason: And what if something bad happens? It always does.
Spinelli: Yeah, but with all due respect --
Jason: Look, just stop talking about me and Elizabeth. Stop coming up with reasons that we should be together. I know we should be together, but we can't be.
Sonny: To Yankee stadium, to the people who decided to tear it down -- may you rot in hell. Why do you think they'd do that?
Paulie: Ah, the almighty dollar?
Sonny: Yeah, well.
Paulie: Hey, I've seen the quest for it destroy plenty of decent people. Hey, no offense.
Sonny: No, I promise you one thing, I won't be spending my money on a skybox.
Paulie: Hey. Sweetheart, do you know this guy?
Mary-Therese: Oh, the dimples are a dead giveaway. Sonny Corinthos. Oh, my God.
Sonny: Your husband said that you were still gorgeous. And I got to say, he's absolutely right.
Mary-Therese: Yeah, well, he's the smartest guy I know. I hate to break up this party, but our son has a game tonight at St. Ignatius. Hey, why don't you come?
Sonny: Oh, I wish I could. I, uh --
Mary-Therese: So what are you doing in Bensonhurst, Sonny?
Singer: Please let me love you like I once loved you
Singer: Why can't we start again
Singer: Life would be rosy
Singer: Comfy and cozy back in your heart again oh how I've missed you if I could just kiss you now like I kissed you then there's no pretending our love's never ending why can't we start again
Nikolas: What's the emergency? Why'd you have to see us right now?
Lulu: Relax, it's nothing bad. It's actually fantastic.
Nikolas: Something you shared with your doctor, or --
Lulu: No, it has nothing to do with me. Well, I mean, it does have to do with -- I'm so happy you guys are going to be so happy, too. Mom asked me to call you.
Nikolas: What do you mean she asked you?
Lulu: Mom has been awake since I've been at Shadybrook. Please, don't -- don't be upset. She asked me not to. She just -- she didn't want to get your hopes up in case she relapsed.
Lucky: I don't believe it.
Lulu: Of course you donít. Come in, just -- come in.
Lulu: Mom. It's okay, this happens. It takes -- it takes a minute sometimes. Mom -- hey, Mom, Lucky and Nikolas are here just like you asked me to bring them. Mom.
Lucky: Lulu, why don't we go back to your room?
Lulu: No, no no. Mom, wake up. Mom. Mom.
Sam: There are two reasons to tell Alexis that I came on to you. Either you want to end whatever this is before it even starts, or you are daring me to go through with this regardless.
Jerry: Well, I'm here, which means that theory number two is correct.
Sam: Yeah, but here's what you need to know. I will not sleep with you as long as you're with Alexis.
Jerry: Oh. That leaves me with a very difficult decision.
Sam: What? I mean, if Alexis is out of the picture, then we have something to discuss.
Jerry: Let's say I take that step, sweet Sam. Do you promise to make it worth my while?
Spinelli: Since Stone Cold is adamant about there being no future between himself and fair Elizabeth, perhaps he might seriously consider a relationship with someone who might be better able to handle his unique profession. So therefore, online dating might be viable --
Jason: Online -- I don't want anything online. I love Elizabeth. We have a child together. I don't -- I don't want to be with anybody else.
Spinelli: Well, if Stone Cold can't move on, that's tantamount to an offer of false hope. I mean, that mindset prevents fair Elizabeth from moving on as well.
Jason: Just stop, and go home.
Spinelli: I didn't mean any --
Jason: I know, I know, just go.
[Knock at door]
Jason: Spinelli, just go home. We'll talk Ė
Kate: Oh, I'm sorry, is this a bad time?
Jason: What do you need?
Kate: Well, I was going over the guest list and I realized that there was a glaring omission. Now, I know that you're ambivalent about me and Sonny getting married, but nevertheless, I was really hoping you would attend.
Jason: I canít.
Woman: You looking for someone? Maybe it's me.
