Perchance, Every Word

Jason buries himself in work. Now, its his organization, his "certificates of operations." But finds himself reflecting to whirlwind events. He realizes he has become all things to all people. Sonny, who offers his advice on shipments his help is refused. When asked repeatedly "do you want the business back?" No. I am only a coffee importer.

Spinelli's love infatuation has become a fixture in his usually serene penthouse. But its Carly's endless issues of a personal nature that concerns him the least. Whom she has sex with is not a conversation of a mob kingpin fending off rival forces in the midst of trying to co-exist. Her latest escapade is more than he has time for. Another "who is her baby's daddy dramas". She leans on him more than her husband; even Jason has limits. He tells her to take her preganancy test, reluctantly looks at her results after her insistence but issues a warning.

"Next time leave me out of your tangle web." As usual his words fall on deaf ears, his request is not respected, she only runs out of his penthouse skipping like a giddy school girl. Of course Sonny pays him a visit, questioning if he is the father of his ex-wife's..child. He learns he is more than resentful of his doing in signing over his rights of Morgan Corinthos.

No, I am not the father; I have a child so I haven't the time or the inclination to play daddy when I haven't to Jacob. This isn't twelve years ago. Like a bad penny, she only turns up again, this time, with Kate paranoia and her engagement to Sonny Corinthos.

What does she want him to do?

It seems these events relate to Michael in some way. He thinks of his nephew who he kept from his brother; his life, in a place far away he lies in a permanent coma.

Claudia, an ominpresent threat. wants a meet. She insists he thank her for helping him during his quarantine; he thanks her for helping Spinelli and walks away.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth is with her colleagues and friends at work doing what she does best, refereeing, comforting.

Stilling Robin's doubts; her pregnancy could involve complications with her HIV status. Suppose she dies, what about her child? The irony of her friend's situation is not lost on Elizabeth. The father of Robin's child suing for parental rights. Elizabeth reassures to not dwell on her fears.

Later that evening, Jason encounters Robin Scorpio sitting in front of Kelly's Diner. His old friend, ex-lover. The one who introduced him to Sonny Corinthos and this life he leads. He listens, gives advice on impending fatherhood. He speaks of changes, being afraid of not being able to predict the outcome because people change.

Jason finds himself telling his own story then there she is

Fair Elizabeth.
