(Tracy has just told Dillon he's staying in Port Charles and she's leaving)
If you're leaving, mom I'm coming with you.
Tracy: Sweetheart, I have a deal that's
coming together in Europe, and it promises to be very hectic and uninteresting.
Dillon: No problem, I'll catch up on some
movies while you work, what...
Tracy: I love having you with me but it's...it's
better if you stay here.
Dillon: But you'll be alone.
Tracy: So would you, as usual. It's not
what I want for you
Dillon: you know, it is...it is way to
Tracy: Where do you get that? From the
movie channel. Look, I have a really good idea for you...how bout you
fill your life with living, breathing human beings that aren't colorized.
Dillon: Mom, my life is fine and we're
supposed to be a team
Tracy: We are and have you ever heard of
the um, the strategy divide and conquer? In this case, it means you
Dillon: You might need me.
Tracy: I'll call. Look baby, don't give
me a hard time about his, it's a done deal. Your grandfather has insisted
that you stay here for your own good for a while.
Dillon: Oh come on mom! Who cares what
Uh, in this case, I...I happen to agree with him. (Voice breaks) I love
Dillon: I love you too.
Tracy: Good. (Zips up his sweatshirt) So
maybe you'll start dressing a little better...maybe not...and you won't
pierce anything or tattoo anything and you'll make me proud while I'm
gone, and as soon as (voice breaks) my deal is done, I'll come back
for you, I promise.
(Dillon breaks into tears and Tracy hugs him and he cries in her arms)
walks down the stairs and Edward sees him)
Edward: Hey, why haven't you left yet?
I wanted Tracy to clear out hours ago.
Dillon: She's gone.
Edward: Well, why aren't you with her?
Dillon: Because you wanted me to stay.
(Edward gives him a look) Didn't you?
Edward: Oh, God! Reginald! Call the airport
and stop Tracy's plane!
(Skye, Alan and AJ come walking into the room)
Alan: What happened?
Edward: Get her back here!
Ned: Are you delusional?
Alan: We just got rid of her why do you
want her back?
Edward: Are you blind? Look! (Points to
Dillon) She left something behind. Reginald!
Oh, this is such classic Tracy! She doesn't get what she wants so what
does she do? She sneaks off and leaves her excess baggage behind!
Ned: (Looks at Dillon) Maybe now is not
the best time to discuss this.
Edward: There is nothing to discuss, Ned.
Skye: Oh, true. What was Tracy thinking?
This family usually sells off its unwanted children.
AJ: (To Edward) Not anymore, she left you
an heir du jour you love those.
Edward: Look, I offered to take Dillon
in as a child and raise him the way Lila and I raised Ned. No, Tracy
refused. Said that he was all she had and she would never part with
him. So what does she do? She keeps him long enough to warp him for
life and then she dumps him on our doorstep.
Alan: Well maybe Tracy just wanted an excuse
to come back and blackmail us.
Dillon: Hey...the excuse is leaving, ok?
You guys won't have to deal with me, I won't be a problem or anything,
I'll just (picks up the phone) I'll call my mom's broker and find out
where she's headed and I'll meet her there.
Edward: Well do you have your passport?
I'll buy you a plane ticket. But you will not use the ELQ jet.
Ned: (To Edward) Put a sock in it! (To
Dillon) Look, (takes the phone from him) put this down (hangs up the
phone). It's good that you're here and grandfather will realize that
just as soon as he calms down. We are your family. You are not to blame
for our mother's behavior anymore than I am. You're more than welcome
Edward: But think of the years that the
kid has had to learn treachery and subterfuge at Tracy's knee. Hmm?
Alan: Well, everything that Tracy learned,
she learned it from you.
AJ: (To Dillon) Hey, and don't you pull
any stunts like your mother
Ned: If pulling stunts, could get someone
kicked out of this family junior, you would've been kicked out of here
a long time ago.
AJ: Please, since when are you the concerned
older brother, Ned?
Alan: Now let me tell you something...
Ned: I've always been concerned, I gave
you a job.
(All start arguing and Dillon just leaves)
