General Hospital Transcript Monday 12/31/07
Lucky: Alfred's right. Alfred. What, you don't answer your phone anymore?
Nikolas: Uh -- well, I -- you know, I just got back from Switzerland, and all this work's been piling up on me, so I just --
Lucky: Yeah, high enough to bury yourself in. It's New Year’s, and we're all having to face it without Emily.
Nikolas: Yeah. Yeah. Well, she should be here well; she should be here right now with me. I haven't seen her all day.
Lucky: What do you mean, you haven't seen Emily all day?
Nikolas: It's just there's traces of her all around. Clothing, handwriting, pieces of furniture, art we bought together, this. Last night, I couldn't sleep. I -- I kept tossing and -- and turning all night. And the headboard on Emily’s side was banging up against the wall, so I got up to take a look, and -- and I found this wedged in between the headboard and the wall.
Lucky: What is it?
Nikolas: It's our book. She read it to me when I was shot and couldn't speak, and I read it to her while she had cancer. It was very special to both of us.
Lucky: Well, maybe it fell behind the -- the bed.
Nikolas: The point is, is that there's pieces of her all throughout this house. And I feel like -- I feel like one by one, they're being taken away from me, and I'm afraid I'm going to wake up one day and all of her will be gone.
Lucky: Emily is alive -- alive in all of us who loved her. You know, she'll always be a part of you, a part of all of us. Why don't you come with me to Metro Court tonight and celebrate New Year’s with Alexis, me, and lulu?
Nikolas: I'm sorry, I can't, okay? Hey, Happy New Year. You have a Happy New Year.
Lucky: Yeah, you, too.
Emily: I'm here, Nikolas. I'm right here.
Sam: Okay -- now, there you go.
Man: No, that's just too much.
Man: This -- this --
Sam: No, no, no, no. You are a life saver, Joe, once again. Thank you.
Joe: Yeah, I know, but you shouldn’t.
Sam: Come on, it's New Year’s. I'm sure you had, you know, a ton of other places to be.
Joe: Yeah, home with my wife. She's not been feeling great.
Sam: Well, I'm sorry to hear that.
Lucky: What's going on?
Sam: Oh, not much. My fuel pump broke.
Lucky: I thought it was a new car.
Sam: Yeah, I know.
Joe: New car, same old problem. Nothing's built to last anymore. Whole world's going to hell.
Joe: I'll see you again, Sam.
Sam: Thanks again. Have a Happy New Year.
Joe: Can't be worse than the last one.
Lucky: Well, he's a ray of sunshine.
Sam: Joe Smith? Well, you know, he -- he is a mechanic that I use from time to time. He's from the outside of town, he's fine. He's --
Lucky: Yeah. The question is, how well does he know you? You were sent a text message by a killer. I mean, any chance he could be the one?
Sam: Joe Smith?
Lucky: Joe- right.
Sam: Come on! Yes -- that is his real name, and no, he's harmless. He would not do anything to me. If he would've -- he would've chopped my head off in the -- under the hood today.
Lucky: Still, you shouldn't leave your door open right now or invite strange men upstairs.
Sam: Oh, really? Well, I invited you in. Now, I am going to go take a shower, then I'm going to get ready for the Metro Court.
Lucky: Oh, no, no, no, no. Do you really want to? Because Nikolas -- he's locked himself up in Wyndemere and, well --
Lucky: After the whole black-and-white ball, I don't really feel like --
Sam: Yeah -- hmm. Well, hmm -- hmm. Why don't you take a nice, long hot bath with me?
Lucky: Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.
Sam: But I do have to get you --
Lucky: Oh, no.
Sam: Dirty first.
