Painful Homecoming


Sonny: You all right?

Alexis: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. How's Johnny?

Sonny: Johnny? He's fine. What happened?

Alexis: It wasn't his fault, all right? He was outnumbered, so he didn't stand a chance.

Sonny: All right.

Ned: Oh, yes, the much-feared Sonny Corinthos' strongmen. Great at breaking kneecaps, lousy at protecting women who are unfortunate enough to know you.

Alexis: Ned?

Jax: You know, Corinthos, you've checked on Alexis. She's fine, so -- you can leave now.

Kristina: So you are the famous Sonny Corinthos. I have heard all sorts of vague things about you. By the way, max, the bodyguard, he was excellent, I must say. Hi, I'm Kristina. Nice to meet you. So, what is it that you do that requires you to always have a bodyguard?

Sonny: I'm in coffee importing.

Ned: Organized crime.

Jax: Yeah, racketeering, extortion, you know, that sort of thing.

Ned: And leading impressionable kids into a life of crime. But the fun's over, Sonny. Alexis is safe. So maybe you can touch base with her some other time, ok?

Sonny: Alexis, you want a ride out of here?

Alexis: Yes, actually, I would. I'm tired. I would like to go home. Pack your things. We're going.

Kristina: Actually, all of my things are scattered all over the place, so if it's ok with Ned, I'm going to stay here one more night, ok?

Jax: You know, Kristina, why don't you go with Alexis tonight? I'm sure she doesn't want to be alone.

Kristina: Alexis can call me if she needs anything.

Alexis: I'm fine. I can be alone. I can do that. Thank you, thank you. Thank you. Ok.

Kristina: I'll see you tomorrow?

Alexis: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: Please, whatever you do, don't blame Johnny for anything because it wasn't his fault. He would have defended me with his life. He was outnumbered.

Max: It's clear.

Alexis: You see? It's clear. I'm safe. No, no, really. Thanks for everything. You can stand down. At ease, soldier. You have delivered me safely home. I'm serious. I'm fine. You can go.

Sonny: I don't think so.

{next scene}

Sonny: I don't think I should leave you like this.

Alexis: Like what?

Sonny: Well, you say you're all right, but then you're not acting like you're all right.

Alexis: I'm all right. I said I'm all right. I'm fine, really. Listen -- thank you for driving me home.

Sonny: You already thanked me.

Alexis: Ok, I'm thanking you again. S

onny: Uh-huh.

Alexis: Thank you. I'm fine. Really. Sonny, why wouldn't I be fine? Everything worked out perfectly. I won. They lost. Helena's in jail. Stavros is gone --

Sonny: Alexis, would you come here?

Sonny: It's me you're talking to.

{next scene}

Alexis: Why are you looking at me like that?

Sonny: Like what?

Alexis: Like you think I'm going to have a nervous breakdown or something.

Sonny: Because you -- you've been through a lot and you're still carrying it.

Alexis: I told you eight times -- I told you I'm fine.

Sonny: I can read you better than that, Alexis. You and me, we got a connection.

Alexis: You're right, all right? It's this place.

Sonny: Oh.

Alexis: I'm not comfortable here. I've never been comfortable here. I'm moving. I'm -- you know, you should know that the air conditioning doesn't work here. It's really too hot in theummer. It's too cold in the winter. And I hate that window. I hate that window. I hate where it is. I've always hated it. I hated it then. I hate it now. Hate it. Hate it. I hate it because it doesn't give me any southern exposure and I need southern exposure. And I hate that vase. And I hate that I hate that vase. I hate that I've hated it for so long and it's still in my apartment.

Sonny: Break it.

Alexis: What?

Sonny: Don't even think. Just break it.

Alexis: That is absurd. I'm not going to break it.

Sonny: Break it!

Alexis: No.

Sonny: Break it. Break it.

Alexis: Oh! Oh, my god!

Sonny: All right.

Alexis: Ooh. Ok.

Sonny: You see that? Ha! What else? What else?

Alexis: That is --

Sonny: That?

Alexis: Really horrible. But -- don't touch it, please, because Stefan gave it to me and he would know it if he sees it --

Sonny: Break it.

Alexis: I can't break it.

Sonny: Break it!

Alexis: Ah! Oh, my --

Sonny: All right.

Alexis: Oh, my gosh.

Sonny: What else?

Alexis: Um -- well, this is pathetic.

Sonny: You don't like that?

Alexis: Actually, it's really --

Sonny: Why?

Alexis: Fake, I think.

Sonny: Think it's fake?

Alexis: Yeah, I know it's fake.

Sonny: All right. This one?

Alexis: I mean --

Sonny: Go ahead. Just do it.

Alexis: Ok! I just hate this. Hate this -- ooh. Hate this. I mean, this is really -- hate this. All -- hate it. Hate it. I hate her. Hate Helena. I hate her. I hate her. I -- hate what she's done. I hate what she stands for. I hate what she did to my mother. I hate how scared she made me feel all my life.

Sonny: Hey -- it's all right. Come on. All right.

Sonny: Hey -- it's ok to be scared.

Alexis: No, it wasn't ok for me to be scared. If I let Helena know how scared I was, she would have destRoyed me.

Sonny: I know how that works, but Helena's not here. It's just you and me now.

Alexis: I mean, the only way to control the situation was to not show my weakness, to just show no fear. That's how I dealt with Helena. That's how I dealt with my life.

Alexis: I dreamed about you. I dreamed that you rescued me.

Sonny: I did? Wow.

Alexis: Look, the good news is that this is over, so -- thanks for this. Thanks for letting me break every ugly thing in my home. So I'm going to go to bed, so I'll say good night.

Sonny: Hey -- feel better?

Alexis: You have no idea.

{next scene}

Sonny: All right, thanks a lot.

Alexis: Look at this.

Sonny: I told you I'd take care of it.

Alexis: You know, it's incredible. Thank you.

Sonny: Not a problem.

Alexis: I thought you'd be long gone by now.

Sonny: No.

Alexis: Well, thank you again for everything.

Sonny: You're welcome.

Alexis: So, I'll see you tomorrow, then, I guess, huh?

Sonny: I'll be here.

Alexis: You don't have to do this. I'm -- go home. Go to your own bed. I'm fine. I can be alone. I do alone just fine.

Sonny: I know. But not tonight.
