(Georgie has just listened to Dillon's conversation with his mom. Dillon
slams his cell phone down on the table)
Georgie: (Walks up) Dillon, your mom obviously
doesn't get how much you hate it here.
Dillon: How long have you been standing
Georgie: I wasn't eavesdropping. I was...I
was waiting for you to get off the phone and...maybe your mom will reconsider
once she's had some time to think.
Dillon: She was on her way out the door,
you know? She was going to some party or something. I should...it was
really my fault I should have known better. She has her life. I have
mine. It's not a big deal.
Georgie: It still hurts to find out you're
not a priority with your mother.
Dillon: At least your mother's missing
in action because your great-grandmother's sick. I mean, mine...mine
has a full social calendar.
Georgie: Yeah, my great-grandmother's sick
this time but you don't know how many times Maxie and I have
been dumped just so she can go off on another one of her wild adventures.
Dillon: What is this, a competition?
Georgie: I'm just trying to say...
Dillon: I know what...I know what you...I
know what you're trying to do, and I appreciate it, but forget it.
Georgie: I'm too relieved to forget. I
know this is really, really selfish, but I'm really glad your mom turned
So I know your not sadistic enough to enjoy watching me humiliate myself.
Georgie: You didn't humiliate yourself,
Dillon. You called your mom. It's not your
fault she's too self-centered to care about you. It only proves your
better off without her, and besides, I'm really glad you're stuck here.
Everyone treats me like Maxie's little sister, the straight-A geek,
and you're the only one who treats me like a real person. And you care
about my ideas and what I think, you act like I'm interesting and fun,
instead of just an alien from another planet.
Dillon: (Smiles) Well, maybe that's because
I feel like I'm an alien. You know, I don't...I don't get the whole
high school thing any better than I get the life-at-home thing. I don't
belong here, or with my mom or anywhere with anyone. Except with you.
And that is the real reason why I shouldn't have called her. It's because
as bad a place as this is, I wouldn't want to leave it, if it meant
sees Jason talking to Lorenzo Alcazar out the window at Kelly's. When
Alcazar leaves, he comes out to talk to Jason)
Dillon: Jason? Hi. Hi. Um, I don't know
if you remember me or not?
(Alcazar comes back but stops when he sees Dillon talking to Jason)
Jason: Well, you're a Quartermaine. Dillon,
Dillon: Yeah. Yeah, I'm Tracy's son. Um,
the thing is she kind of just dropped me off on the Quartermaines' and
split, which would be no problem except for the fact that I can't stand
those people. Uh, event he ones who mean well are driving me nuts, and
the rest of them, like grandfather and AJ, I'm learning to hate.
Jason: Is there something you want?
Dillon: No, yeah...I mean, I...the thing
is they're always telling me what a problem I am and they're saying
I'm going to turn out like you. And I guess that's supposed to be some
sort of insult, but you know...I don't know you seem to like your life
ok, which is more than I can say for any of them. I don't know if you
noticed or not. I was at the...I was at the police station when you
told the old man you don't need him. I don't need him either. And that's
why I want to work for you.
(Georgie walks off the elevator and sees Maxie talking to Kyle)
Kyle: Am I a genius or what? As long as
you keep up this candystriping, you've got everyone thinking you're
Little Miss Responsible.
Maxie: You know, it's so amazing. Mac is
so relieved that I'm doing something worthwhile. I mean, he barely gave
me any grief last night.
Kyle: Watch it's going to get even better.
Every hour you spend in this uniform is going to buy you two hours off
duty and hassle free.
Georgie: Get lost. Or I'm gong to tell
Mac that Maxie's using this job as an excuse to hang out with a loser
Maxie: (Stands up) Yeah. Well you know
what Georgie? If you even think about that, I will make sure that you
never see Dillon again.
Dillon: You know, the Quartermaines' talk
about you like you're dead. You know they say you're lost. They say
it's a tragedy. I don't see it that way. I mean, you had a chance to
escape, you took it. You're free. You don't have to listen to their
insanity, You don't have to ask them for anything. I swear to you, if
you give me a job, I wont ask questions, I won't go to the police, I
will be the most dedicated, devoted employee you ever had.
Jason: You always talk so much?
Dillon: Actually, no
Dillon: I guess I'm nervous
Jason: Just listen, listen for a second,
trust me I understand why you want to get away from the Quartermaines.
And I can help you. I can give you some money. I can even find you a
job. But it's not going to be with me and Sonny.
Dillon: Why not? I mean, I can handle myself,
you know? Where's that guy? That guy that you were talking to, Alcazar?
I picked his pocket, OK? I mean, I know how to hot-wire cars, and anything
else you need, you can teach me. I'll learn.
Jason: I'm just saying there's no job for
you in Sonny's organization.
Dillon: I mean, it's OK for you, but it's
not OK for me? Come on, man, I didn't think you'd turn out to be a hypocrite,
OK? I mean, you know you had a chance to come work for Sonny, you took
it, you obviously like it. Why can't I get my chance?
Jason: Hey. Hey! I'm going to tell you
something. Quit trying to make grandfather angry. You're wasting your
time. Figure out what you want to do with your life and then go after
that. In the meantime, I can help you. I can give you the money that
you need to get away from those people.
Dillon: I don't want your charity! You
know what? Oh, go to hell I'll do this on my own (goes inside)
Jason) Good. (Leaves)
Georgie: Dillon's going through a really
hard time right now and nobody would've been hurt if you guys weren't
complete narcs and ran straight to Mac!
Maxie: You know what, Georgie? I was trying
to stop you from getting into trouble, OK?
Georgie: You're the one who's in trouble!
After all this guy's put you through, you still can see that he's a
Kyle: No, I'm not the one with multiple
Georgie: Yeah, because Maxie's so gullible
to press charges or tell Mac about all the crap you've pulled!
(Tony walks up)
Tony: Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey, keep you
voices down. This is a hospital. You need to respect the rules.
Georgie: She's the one not respecting
the rules! She's hanging out with this loser when she should be candy-striping!
Tony: Since when do you start to tattle
on people? I've heard nothing but compliments about her and plus candy-stripers
do get breaks, you know? I thought you were going to volunteer?
Georgie: I would rather die than
be stuck-up like her! (Leaves)
(Georgie and Dillon are sitting at the bar)
Dillon: I ask for a job from my cousin,
the gangster, and he turns me down. I mean, he didn't come right
out and say it, but I know he was thinking, he's thinking, "I'm
going to save this kid from a life of crime."
Georgie: Maybe that's not such a bad thing.
Dillon: No! Do you see, Georgie that's
the point! I can handle myself, you know?
(Lorenzo walks up)
Lorenzo: That was my impression. (Dillon
& Georgie both turn around)
I caught a little of your conversation with your cousin. I understand
you need a job. I don't have anything permanent to offer you at the
moment, but I'll pay you to run an errand for me.
Dillon: How much?
Georgie: Wait a minute. Dillon won't do
anything dangerous or illegal.
(Both Georgie and Dillon watch Alcazar count out money)
Lorenzo: This is neither. (Hands Dillon
money) All you have to do is hold onto this envelope (pulls envelope
out of his coat) for twenty-four hours. And then hand...hand
deliver it to Sonny Corinthos. (Hands Dillon envelope)
(Dillon takes it)
