This three hour cruise is turning out longer than Gilligan’s, and a lot less interesting.

Sam wakes up to find Carly looking over Josslyn, asleep in a crib.  Carly wonders how Sam managed to get the baby to sleep. Sam explains that she talked the little one to sleep.  Carly admits Sam is good at the mommy stuff.  Sam doesn’t know how Carly does it. Carly claims it’s good to have a nanny.  Sam wonders if it’s hard without Jax and feels Carly drove Jax away...  Carly admits it’s the truth.  Carly says she still loves Jax, but things don’t always work out perfectly.  Sam wonders if Carly would want to work things out if Jax wasn’t dead and Carly turns it back on her. 

Shawn lets Jason know that there is no sign of Franco.  He tells Jason to continue enjoying his honeymoon, before having to deal with the mess in PC.  Jason explains that he knows about Dante and the drugs. He jokes Shawn could take over for him if he wants.  Jason asks about Sonny. Shawn assures him that they’re co-existing.  Shawn tells Jason about everything in Port Charles, including Michael finding Dante and wanting to help with the drugs.  Jason wonders if the Zaccharas are behind it. Sonny will want payback.  Shawn figures Sonny is waiting for Jason’s return. Jason asks Shawn if he wants to stay on. 

The fireworks start, catching them all of guard.  Sam and Jason head back into the cabin to watch the show from their room.  Sam’s worried the fireworks will wake up Josslyn. Jason tells her she’s a natural with the baby.  Sam mentioned Carly asking her about having a baby and wondering if they’re ready yet.  Sam says it takes a lot to be a mother, a parent and Jason wonders should they or shouldn’t they.
