AJ thinks back to the day of the sonogram. While in thought, Monica stops by to apologize. AJ tells her it's not necessary, she had no way of knowing Carly had drugged him. She tells AJ she also wants to apologize for having dropped out of his life since he became sober.

-Lorraine tells Tony why she's there and he recognizes her from the GH nursing program. She goes on about how happy he must be to be an expectant father and even tests him on the due date and if they've had a sonogram yet. Cary is getting nervous.

Luke is back and Lucky is a bit surprised to see him. Lucky introduces his dad to Liz and she's very happy to meet him. He asks Lucky if they can have a few minutes alone and Liz leaves. He wants to know if Lucky's been avoiding his mother. Of course he says no, he's just been real busy with school. Lucky asks how the family is doing and wants to know where they are; Luke tells him he's here to do a little business and then gather up his son to go back to Switzerland. Bobbie hears Luke and comes in.

Sarah and Nikolas share their first kiss and both seem happy about it since they don't seem to want to stop kissing. He tells her how beautiful she is and that he wants to take her away; he tells her he has money and they could go anywhere. Nikolas is upset with the way Mr. Murdy treated Sarah and she defends the teacher to him. She's upset with the way Nikolas was treated and he lets her know that school, and all its rules, do not really matter to him. He hopes that her grandmother won't keep them apart because of this incident and suggests they go straighten things out with her.

Monica & AJ make small talk and she asks him if he's happy there. She lets him know that she misses having him at home but not to worry she's not trying to get him to come back. Also, she is a bit worried that Carly lives right across the hall but he tells her there's no need to worry.

Carly tries to get Lorraine out of the apartment and when she says she must use the bathroom before going, Tony comments to Carly on how there's something strange going on in the room. He's getting the impression that she doesn't like this girl who claims to be Carly's friend. She tells Tony that she ran into her and she just dropped by. Carly walks Lorraine out and the two have an exchange of words in the hallway. Lorraine wants her money by tomorrow and if she doesn't get it she's going to tell Tony. Carly tells her not to worry: She'll have it and that she should never come to her house again.

Liz goes home and Audrey tells her she knows she lied about going to work because Ruby called; she punishes her for a week. Liz tries to explain that she is worried about Sarah but Audrey doesn't want to hear it. Then in walks Sarah and Nikolas who ask to have a word with her in private. Audrey asks Liz to leave and she goes upstairs but listens from the top of the stairs. Nikolas tells her that he didn't steal the answers but only took the blame because of Sarah. He knew she didn't do it either and couldn't stand to see her get blamed for it. He hopes she believes him. Audrey's only concern is then who really took them and why would they do this to Sarah. Nikolas then says goodnight and Sarah walks him to the door.

-Alexis explains to Stefan what happened with Katherine who is still not up from the fall. He has her call 911 immediately. Katherine begins to open her eyes and tells Alexis she is lying about what went on. She gets up and starts yelling at Stefan that she knows he still cares or he would not have cradled her in his arms the way he did. She also says she knows this all has to do with Alexis and lets them know she will find out why they're lying. She leaves after Stefan tells her to go.

Carly knocks on AJ's door and Monica answers. She tells Carly to leave but she tries to explain to Monica that she knows what she did was wrong and wants to try to salvage the friendship her and AJ once had. Monica tells her to get away and Carly asks her to tell AJ she stopped by. AJ questions who was at the door and when she tries to lie and say it was someone selling candy he asks her to tell him the truth, he knows it was Carly.

Carly tries to apologize to Tony about having Lorraine over but he is upset, its BJ's birthday today, and he'd really like to be alone. She tries to comfort him and have him feel their baby but he can't do it and goes in their bedroom.

Bobbie tells Luke about what happened at the wedding and then in the middle of their conversation Tony calls. The two talk about BJ and how much they miss her. They both are crying and he apologizes for doing this to her and they hang up. Bobbie tells Luke she would have gone to Tony if he wasn't with Carly. She also tells him that Carly is pregnant. Luke looks shocked.

Liz comes down and tells Audrey and Sarah that the two of them are being conned by Nikolas and they don't even see it. Sarah lets her sister know she is so sick of her manipulations and that she is not affected by what Liz says. Liz then proceeds to call her sister pathetic. She goes outside for a smoke and who pops out, Nikolas. He tells Liz he'd like to run a theory by her; the person who took the test answers had to have gotten into a locked drawer and had access to Sarah's bag on more than one occasion. He tells her to think about that and walks away. It appears as if he's figured this all out.

Tony apologizes to Carly for shutting her out earlier and thanks her for giving him an unexpected, wonderful gift.

Monica tells AJ she wishes she could tell Alan but AJ says it would only be a matter of time before Tony found out and he would hate Carly and she would use the baby to manipulate him. He's only thinking about the defenseless baby. She doesn't agree with him but does admire him.

Stefan tells Alexis she had no right to do what she did to Katherine because she is his sister and one of them. He asks why she really doesn't like Katherine and when she won't give him an answer he tells her to go.

He tells Katherine to let him go but she says she can't and defends him. She pleads with him to help her and leaves, hoping he'll reconsider.

Audrey tells Liz she has a feeling she isn't telling the truth but when she turns on the sob story, tears and all, Audrey gives in and apologizes for not being sensitive to her feelings. She says that if Nikolas is trying to pin something on her she'll back her up but if she really did do it then they will have to reconsider her future in PC.

Bobbie admits to Luke that Tony having a baby with Carly really hurts. She says it's because for so long after BJ died she tried to get him to adopt another child and then five minutes into his relationship with Carly she hits the jackpot.

He tells her that the principal gave him a few days to prove who really did it or else he is going to get an "F" in the class.

Thursday, October 9, 1997

At the hospital Edward is getting ready for the board meeting. Katherine again thanks him for coming to her aid. As the meeting gets underway, everybody including Monica had nothing but good things to say about Katherine. Stefan then puts his two cents in. He agrees that Katherine's performance on the outside has been nothing but outstanding, but as I went over her performance records, it seemed that she was way over her budget. Edward jumps to her defense, I hope you aren't insinuating that Katherine is embezzling from the hospital. No, I am not, but she has used every opportunity she can for free publicity for herself and her company.

She jumps up and yells, "you are a liar! This is personal and you know it!" The room gets quiet and Stefan looks at her and says "you are right, it became personal the day I found her shot on my property." I wanted to do everything I could to help her. "Get her a job, she is better now. No reason for pity! She rises, looks at everyone and says I quit. She walks out of the room and the meeting ends as fast as it began.

Over at the hospital Lorraine is pressuring Carly into paying her. She threatens that if she doesn't have the money in a while she will go to AJ Carly says come back in a few, I will go get you your money. She heads out to the cash machine wondering how she is going to explain this to Tony. Just as she is walking back into the hospital Lorraine shows up again and says Oh you are just in time I was getting ready to look for the Quartermaine money. Just as she is handing Lorraine the money Bobbie shows up and sees her giving all that money to her through the door window. She confronts Carly on what she saw and Carly tells her it's none of her business. Maybe not, but lets see what Tony thinks. Tony walks into the room and Bobbie tells him everything she saw. You explain to Tony Carly why you gave Lorraine all that money?

At Jax's penthouse he is trying to calm down Brenda. She is really upset for going off on Emily the way she did. Jax talks to her, trying to convince her that she should move back into the penthouse with him in the spare room until she is better. Brenda refuses, she wants to learn to stand on her own two feet. I can't do this to you again. You are doing nothing he says. We are friends. "You know my habits and I yours." Like an old pair of shoes. She reluctantly agrees and goes up to take a shower. When she was done she put on one of Jax's house robes and plopped down on the couch. A short time later the front door opens, Brenda looks up; its Venus.

Friday, October 10, 1997

Why in the world would you be giving Lorraine all that money? She gives him this cock and bull story that she spent some of the money that he had lent her for school and she borrowed the money from Lorraine and now she wants it back. That she is a very ambitious person, not professional but personal. When she saw me in a beautiful home, with a wonderful man she got upset. Tony looks at her and says, looks to me like she had a right to! Carly looks stunned! He finally tells her that it happened before they got together and to forget about it. They make plans to see each other later at the apartment to set a date for the wedding.

At the Gatehouse Edward is trying to stop Jax from taking Brenda's stuff out of the gate house. He tells him that he won't allow Brenda to go back to the hotel room. Well, we agree she is coming to stay with me for awhile. That is ridiculous he says. She's a grown woman, she has made up her mind! Emily enters the room and grandfather says, do you know what this man is trying to do? Just when Brenda is getting better, he wants to take her and ruin it all! No grandfather she isn't all right. She was just pretending because we where in her face. Trust me I have been there. She turns to Jax and says, we just want Brenda to get better. Me too, and he walks out of the room.

Over at Jax's place Brenda is trying to explain to V why she is there. V turns and heads up the stairs and says. I know why you are here. She gets her stuff upstairs and heads back down telling Brenda she will just write down everything for Mr. Jax. What did you mean when you said you said you know why I'm here? I assume you are Mr. Jax's friend, and when you are his friend he will give you the shirt off his back or even a place to stay in your case, am I right? Yes you are right! She then asks V. if these drawings are hers. She says, yes they are. They starting talking and joking around when Jax opens the door and sees this wonderful smile on Brenda's face. She agrees that it was a good idea that she came.

Bobbie walks into the conference room, sees Katherine crying and says, don't do this, he's not worth it! Humiliated she says, I should of listened to you. Everyone tried to warn me, but I was to arrogant to listen. Bobbie asks her if there is anything she can do for her, she says no, to please just shut the door on the way out. Bobbie looks at her and leaves.
Outside the conference room Luke and Stefan are still at each other throat. Alexis gets off of the elevator, they have a few choice words and they leave. Luke asks Bobbie what is wrong with Stefan. I couldn't get him mad for nothing. Maybe it's his conscience, he fried Katherine in front of everybody. It doesn't make any sense. Why would he do this knowing she could finger him for the shooting?
