Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Sonny? That greaseball would repel a maggot.
Emily Quartermaine: Jase, you know I think you're perfect.
Jason Morgan: Ah, I'm far from it, Emily.
Emily Quartermaine: And it would be perfect if you'd just get out of your own way and just let yourself be happy.
Jason Morgan: Please, don't do this.
Emily Quartermaine: You know what? I've heard all the reason's that you and Courtney can't be happy, Jason. I'm not sure I believe them. I'm not sure you do, either. But I'm absolutely convinced that love is precious, Jason, it's rare, and you'd be a fool to throw it away. And my big brother's nobody's fool.
Carly Corinthos: So what is the point of your visit here, Jax? You just want to stir things up between me and Sonny?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: Oh, Carly, you can manage that without any coaching form me. I'm here on a different matter.
Carly Corinthos: Sam, right?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: It does have something to do with her, yes.
Carly Corinthos: Mm-hmm, yes? Let me guess - it's got to be driving you crazy that another one of your old flames is with Sonny. It's like déjà vu all over again, except it's a trailer park version of the Brenda saga.
Tracy Quartermaine: You tell Jax he's not for you - which wouldn't be lie. Because he's not, he's mine. You put an end to this silly little crush he thinks he has on you, and I would be willing to overlook the infraction.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: You're serious.
Tracy Quartermaine: As a heart attack.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: You would really prevent underprivileged children from getting the help they need just to satisfy your aging ego?
Tracy Quartermaine: Look, Sweets, you're playing way out of your league, with me and with Jax. He needs woman of substance, not a piece of trash who used to ride a pole in a strip club for dollar tips.
Jason Morgan: What the hell do you want?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: I wanted to congratulate you in person on becoming a father.
Faith Rosco: Oh? You and Bunny are back together?
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: No, that's old news. Jason finally found someone on his own level - Sam McCall.
Faith Rosco: Oh, oh, this is really too delicious. You've been boffing Sonny's girlfriend and live to tell the tale.
Jasper 'Jax' Jacks: Yes, but that's not all Sam just shared the happy news - her and Jason are getting married.
Luke Spencer: Look, Mr. Lansing, you have no idea. You have no experience dealing with the Cassadines. The family ancestral motto is "cause as much misery to as many people as possible, " and Helena here is the grand mistress of misery!
Helena Cassadine: Luke has always been obsessed with me. I suppose it's flattering in a perverse sort of way.
Luke Spencer: Well, perversity is your best event, Cupcake.
Samantha McCall: Where did you get peppermint tea?
Jason Morgan: I don't know, that's old. Brenda bought it.
Samantha McCall: The Brenda? The goddess on a pedestal who I sort of look like but can't hope to replace for Sonny and Jax? That Brenda?
Jason Morgan: Yeah, she - she lived here for a little while when we were married.
Samantha McCall: What?
Jason Morgan: Brenda and I were married for a little while.
Samantha McCall: Were married, Yeah. Ok, I got that part. Why, and why didn't anyone tell me?
Jason Morgan: Why are they going to tell you? It's not like we were in love. Brenda thought that she was sick and she wanted me to commit her to a mental hospital. And I could only do it if I was her husband.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: The issue in question here is Faith's innocence or guilt, not my romantic life.
Ric Lansing: Well, if that's what you can call it. You seem to express attraction like some sort of 9-year-old school girl, picking fights and throwing insults around. What happens when you reach your crescendo? Do you punch the object of your affection in the arm?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Clearly, you're defensive about your impotence in the court room.
Ric Lansing: Oh.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Otherwise, you wouldn't be overcompensating...
Ric Lansing: I see.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: By making personal attacks on me.
Ric Lansing: Here come the insults, right on cue.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: That's right.
Ric Lansing: Alexis, if you want to ask me out for a drink, why don't you just come right out like a big girl and ask me instead of resorting to school-yard tactics?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I would rather die of thirst than ever have a drink with you.
Carly Corinthos: Sonny, didn't you know that I would be here?
Sonny Corinthos: Yeah, if you got word, yeah. Just like I'd find you.
Carly Corinthos: And I know you would find me if I was in trouble.
Sonny Corinthos: I'd find you. I'd save your life if I had to, If I - I'd die trying. That's just he way it is.
Carly Corinthos: So we've got the crisis situation down. Sonny, why are we so lousy on the day-to-day?
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Jax is just the tip of the iceberg as far as me and Sonny. We - we have some major issues.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Well, your brother, Sonny, he can be a little difficult.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Try impossible. Look, he - he wants to run my life and shut me out at the same time. Sonny - I mean, he's arrogant, he's obsessed with power, and you know what, he gets so incredibly angry sometimes you can't even be around him.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Yeah, but he's also decent and generous and superloyal. And he is totally respectful of women, except for the ones he happens to be sleeping with - yeah, they get destroyed. Which is perfect justice that he wound up with Carly, that raving bitch from hell.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: That would be Carly, my best friend.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Oh. Give me a second to pry my foot out of my mouth, and you can tell me all about it.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: I have to admit what I heard today made me change my mind about Skye's guilt.
Tracy Quartermaine: Oh - how mealy-mouthed are you?
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: What...
Ned Ashton: What's wrong, mother? All your attempts at making Skye look like a sociopathic killer blowing up in your face? It's the least you deserve.
Edward Quartermaine #3: I warned you about turning against Skye on the stand, now, didn't I?
Tracy Quartermaine: How can you be so protective of an outsider?
Dr. Alan Quartermaine: Skye's more part of this family then you'll ever be.
Dr. Monica Quartermaine: If your feelings are hurt, why don't you go someplace and recuperate - like another planet for a very long time.
Skye Quartermaine Jacks: Tell me something, Ric - how do you sleep at night?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Done worse, slept better.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Yeah, I know your type, Mr. Lorenzo Alcazar. Beautiful manners, not hard to look at. There is something very fundamentally decent about you that marches hand in hand with something very fundamentally dangerous. Which is what makes gangsters bad boyfriends and even worse business partners.
Lorenzo Alcazar: I'm not a gangster.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Because even with the best of intentions, which I'm sure yours are, their lives depend on secrecy and lies. They're used to getting whatever they want at any cost. They are basically spoiled, overgrown 6-year-olds running around with guns. And what sensible woman would want any part of that?
Lorenzo Alcazar: What if I told this sensible woman that I have a master's from oxford?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Well, then I would say congratulation on your intellectual pursuits. But that a well-read gangster is still a gangster. And I have learned something in my life.
Lorenzo Alcazar: Mm-hmm.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Yeah - I don't accept money from shady characters.
Lorenzo Alcazar: You know, I don't think I've ever been called a shady character before.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Well, then, you're long overdue - no offense.
Sonny Corinthos: I don't see you for years. You show up on my doorstep asking for a favor.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Guilty as charged. But I have to say it's not like you've gone out of your way to stay in touch with me either, mister.
Sonny Corinthos: Right, right.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: In fact, last time we spoke I think you were getting married to Carly, which was unexpected, to say the least, but it looks like everything's worked out all right. I understand you had a baby.congratulations.
Sonny Corinthos: Thank you.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Can I see him?
Carly Corinthos: No. Morgan's sleeping. Maybe some other time.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Oh. What about that other little tyke?
Sonny Corinthos: He's across the hall with Jason.
Carly Corinthos: His name is Michael.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Michael. Right. Yes, A. J. 's son.
Carly Corinthos: No, he's A. J. 's nothing. Sonny's is Michael's legal adopted father.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Naturally. I never intended to imply otherwise.
Carly Corinthos: Well, then, maybe you should think before you open your mouth and say things that are offensive.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Ohh. Look at you.
Carly Corinthos: How rude are you?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Come again?
Carly Corinthos: Well, Sonny's good enough for you to partner up with when you need his - oh, let me think about this, take a wild guess - capital, and now he just seems to be a little too much baggage to carry?
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Pretty much.
Carly Corinthos: How you could call her a friend, I just don't understand.
Lois Cerullo-Ashton: Maybe because you haven't had enough experience in that area to understand.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: Hey, speaking from experience, chasing after other people's problems is never a good idea.
Carly Corinthos: Listen, Sam McCall is my problem. She has already upset my kids, she slept with my husband, and now she's trying to trap Jason. She has got to go, and the sooner the better.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: How do you think you're going to cover yourself? Don't you think that Sonny's going to be a little curious about your spur-of-the-moment trip to Bailey's Beach South Carolina?
Carly Corinthos: Look, he's not even going to know that I was gone, all right? And when I come back, hopefully I'll have proof that Sam's not only a liar and a tramp, but she's also a serious threat to my family.
Felicia Scorpio Jones: Well, it seems like she's hiding a lot.
Carly Corinthos: Of course she is. I mean, it's got to be something bad, too, otherwise she would be using it to get Jason's sympathies.
Carly Corinthos: All right, I'm going to lay it on the table - I am a hypocrite, and anything you've done, I have done much worse.
Samantha McCall: I - I highly doubt that.
Carly Corinthos: Oh really? Have you ever stolen your mother's husband out of spit?
Samantha McCall: You did that?
Carly Corinthos: Yeah, and then I shot him in open court. It really wasn't one of my better days. Tony Jones got what he deserved, but my mother did not. What about you? Hmm? You close with your mom?
Samantha McCall: I barely knew her.
Carly Corinthos: Why is she dead?
Samantha McCall: I have - I have no idea.
Carly Corinthos: What about ex-husbands? Hmm? I drugged Michael's biological father and I threw him in an alley and then poured vodka all over him.
Samantha McCall: Really? Why - why?
Carly Corinthos: Remember Tony Jones I just mentioned? I was hoping he was Michael's biological father, not A. J. , and I was afraid that A. J. was going to push for a paternity test. I didn't want him to, so I made him think that he needed to be in rehab.
Samantha McCall: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Jason told me that you married A. J. before Sonny.
Carly Corinthos: Yeah, I did, and truthfully, I regret marrying A. J. a hell of a lot more than I regret drugging him but at the time, I thought I was doing the right thing.
Emily Quartermaine: Is Nikolas here?
Mary Bishop: Emily.
Emily Quartermaine: Yeah, that's right, Mary. I know everything. You found Nikolas after his car accident. He needed a doctor and his family and me, and you kept him away from everyone he loves most! You made him believe he was a deserter! You stole his entire life! And now I am here to give it back to him.connor Bishop is dead, and Nikolas Cassadine is going home with me.
Jason Morgan: OK, when the bartender gets back, I want you to distract him.
Carly Corinthos: OK. How?
Jason Morgan: Just do something you're good at - lie.
Mary Bishop: I would do anything for Connor. He knows that. I made him safe. I brought him back from the darkness. You can call it an accident or fate or an answer to my prayer. But the only truth that really matters is that he loves me. And if you really love him as much as you say you do, you'll let him stay with me.
Emily Quartermaine: Like hell I will.
Emily Quartermaine: Jason sent me because he thought you might need someone to talk to.
Samantha McCall: He worries about me.
Emily Quartermaine: You couldn't ask for anyone better in your corner. No matter what kind of trouble you're in.
Samantha McCall: You know, actually, it's not all trouble. We just found out we're having a baby girl.
Emily Quartermaine: Oh, congratulations.
Samantha McCall: Yeah. I just - I wish this nightmare was over so I could just focus on the baby.
Emily Quartermaine: You know, the past is part of us, Sam. But getting stuck in it doesn't help anyone. I learned that one the hard way.
Ric Lansing: Oh, You know what? It must really get under your skin that Sonny's ex-mistress lives right across the hall. She's almost family now, isn't she? And we all know that you don't like anybody getting in your little clan.
Carly Corinthos: You got a problem with Sam, Ric, get rid of her yourself.
Nikolas Cassidine: You're just like Emily and Lucky and Alexis. Trying to tell me how I should act, who I should be. That's not going to happen.
Helena Cassadine: I am your closest living relative, Nikolas. Emily - she was just a distraction, a fleeting romance. She's not worthy of you. And as for Alexis? The Cassidine bastard. She hates us more with every living minute. She would love nothing more to turn you against me.
Nikolas Cassidine: What about my brother?
Helena Cassadine: Oh, your half brother? Well, poor Lucky - his family has been unraveling for years. He's just jealous of you, Nikolas - Jealous of your strength and your position.
Nikolas Cassidine: As oppose to you, right who has my best interest at heart?
Helena Cassadine: I have loved you all of your life. You are the reason I live.
Jason Morgan: Don't go around threatening Carly, Sam.
Samantha McCall: She was threatening me.
Jason Morgan: OK, you know what, Sam? I... whatever. I don't care who started it. Carly's vicious when she feels threatened. She'll fight anyone, she'll do anything to hold on to her family, and that includes me. She's afraid you're going to take me away. You got a lot more trouble than you can handle already. So the next time Carly comes over here, do your self a favor - keep your mouth shut and let me deal with her.
Carly Corinthos: You have been shot at again. Jason has lost his mind for some reason over Sam, and I seem to be the only one who cares that she is a murderer and an arsonist. And you are telling me to leave this alone. But my family... it feels to me that my family is being threatened, and every instinct that I have is telling me to fight.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: Georgie, look, OK, for the last time, Dillon told you that he loves you, right?
Georgie Jones: Yeah, in a girl-next-door kind of way.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: Look, don't get yourself down.
Georgie Jones: It's call reality.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: Look, you guys - you guys almost did it so many times.
Georgie Jones: Yeah, but guys like the chase. I mean, they like what they can't have. "Yes, " "When? " "How soon? " I mean, it's a total turnoff.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: I think Sage is kind of in your face about it, thought, right?
Georgie Jones: That doesn't count. She's a walking billboard for sex. Guys are always into her.
Brooke-Lynn Ashton: OK, well, Georgie, what do you think she does right?
Georgie Jones: Talks like a tramp, walks like a tramp, acts like a tramp. Therefore, she is a tramp.
Sonny Corinthos: Sister Agnes said I was asking for Carly the whole time I was lying shot in that convent. I was half delirious. I could've asked for anybody. I could've ask for Sam, even Brenda. Hell, I could asked for you to get me the hell out of there, but I didn't. I wanted to see Carly. I wanted to see her face. The Nuns called Carly to come, she came! that's what I can't get past. This was her chance to get out of my life, to let go. The more this goes on, Jason, the more I realize maybe, just maybe I couldn't let go any more than she could.
Jason Morgan: Sonny, just leave - leave things the way they are right now.
Sonny Corinthos: I want Carly as my wife, not my roommate! I want to be able to sleep with her. I want to be able to trust her and I want her to be able to trust me. If I tell her the truth and she leaves, at least it's resolved. And if she stays, at least I know that she did it knowingly with her eyes open because she wanted to.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: You were trained from birth to take over the Cassadine empire. My brother raised you, and he loved you, Nikolas, beyond all reason. Unfortunately, he died. Your mother is Laura. She left you in Greece when you were very young.
Nikolas Cassidine: How did I end up here?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: Obligation. You made friends here, Nikolas. You made good friends, they were your own age. And you had never had that experience before.
Nikolas Cassidine: Was I happy?
Alexis Davis Cassadine: I think so - for a Cassadine. The Cassadine's have never been accused of looking at the bright side of things. You were kind, you were generous, you were loyal. You wanted to replace the Cassadine insanity with reason. You were our soul, our conscience.
Nikolas Cassidine: Like - like Emily is for the Quartermaines.
Alexis Davis Cassadine: In a way, yes.
Nikolas Cassidine: Yeah. I think I'm beginning to realize why we fell in love.
Faith Rosco: Oh - Oh, I am so sick of this male double standard! If you're a strong woman, you know, they call you a psychopath! But every single available man in town has lost it! They're completely obsessed with a good little girl like Courtney Cottontail and Little Lizzie Webber!
Sonny Corinthos: There were times, you know, when I wanted to be with you, and - I wouldn't admit it. Then I got shot, and I couldn't hide from it anymore.
Carly Corinthos: And that's when I realized without a doubt - I still loved you, and I always will.
Sonny Corinthos: You know when I woke up and saw you there, I thought I had died.
Carly Corinthos: Did you think you were in heaven or in hell?
Sonny Corinthos: I didn't care, you know, as long as you were with me.
Carly Corinthos: That is an excellent answer.
