Kristina refuses to sign annulment. 09/24/12.


Kristina: Would you just chill out for a minute? I barely even said the word "married" before you were already out the door, ready to do who knows what to Trey and his father.

Sonny: If someone messes with my kids, I fight back. That's my instinct. I got to do what I have to do.

Kristina: And I love you for it . . . some of the time. But nobody's messing with me.

Sonny: I don't believe that.

Kristina: Do you know why I agreed to do the wedding?

Sonny: No.

Kristina: I can see just how much Trey loves his father and how badly he wants to protect him. You and I get into it a lot. But you're still my father. And who's to say I wouldn't do something this crazy for you?

Kristina and Trey. 8/12

Kristina: I don't think you've ever asked my advice about anything.

Sonny: Well, then it's overdue. You're exactly the person I trust to help me out.

Kristina: Is this about Michael and Starr? You know, I'm not crazy about her either, but Michael seems to really like her, and when he gets like that, you just can't argue with him.

Sonny: Michael's following his heart. I can't fault him for that.

Kristina: This is a new side to you. You're usually much more controlling.

Sonny: Well, if there was trouble for Michael, I'd speak up, just like you and Trey. I just don't . . .

Kristina: Gee, this was going so well.

Sonny: But then again you're the one who has to make your own choices, right? If you like someone, love someone, then you hope it's the beginning of something and not the end. Right?

Kristina: Yeah.

Sonny: So, uh...

Kristina: That's an engagement ring.

Sonny: I'm going to ask Kate to marry me.

Kristina is recast in May 2012.


Sonny: Now you’re going to go off to college. Not just any college, but an Ivy League college. That’s reason to celebrate.

Kristina: Yeah. That and the fact that I’ll be long gone, right? How much drama can I create all the way from New Haven.

Sonny: (Laughs) I’m going to miss you, drama included.

Kristina: I’m so reminding you, you said that.

Sonny: As much as I want you close to me, I know that education is going to open up a lot of doors for you and that’s what I want for you. I want, for all my kids, a better life than I had.

Kristina: I think I finally see that.

Sonny: What took you so long?

Kristina: Thank you for not giving up on me. Even when I was slamming doors in your face

Sonny: You know what? You keep slamming those doors, because I’ll always be here for you. (Sonny and Kristina have a tearful hug).


Kristina. 10/11


Sonny: Hey. What's going on? Look who's up and running.

Kristina: Well, right now, I'd be happy just to live my own life.

Sonny: Should I ask?

Alexis: Really?

Kristina: Mom is making decisions for me. Yeah, she seems to have total amnesia that I'm 18 and can make them for myself.

Sonny: Well, there's some things about your mother that never change.

Alexis: And you're so laissez-faire with your hands-off style of parenting?

Sonny: Well, we won't get into that right now. So let's just think about how great it is that you're up and running. You feeling good?

Kristina: Yeah. I just get tired really easily, but doctor says it's normal.

Sonny: Okay, now that it's over, I will admit that I was worried, 'cause if I had lost you, I don't know what I would have done.

Kristina: Maybe that's just a little dramatic.

Sonny: No, I mean it. I mean, at this point, you know, the kids are pretty much all I got left, and you guys mean a lot to me.


Sonny: We should do a trip, just you and me. You know? I mean when you feel better.

Kristina: I'm kind of busy with school, but thanks for the offer.

Sonny: I understand. College comes first and nothing is more important than education. But I'm thinking maybe if you had some time, you know, life experience, culture, different places. That's a good education, too, you know. I've been wanting to take you someplace. I never said anything, because I wanted you to be old enough. It's right off the coast of the island. You take a little boat there, right? And it's a little strip of property. You stand on one side and watch the sun set while the moon rises on the other side. The sky is almost dark, and the water's very calm. On one side you feel like peace. The other side you feel like hope. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, I got to tell you. It's when I first realized there's got to be a God because something's got to make the world go around. Something's got to balance everything out. No matter how down you feel or where you are in your life, when you're there you always feel like you're part of something bigger, you know? Would you want to go with me, maybe, sometime?



Kristina continues to suffer from mysterious neck pain. She collapses on the docks, where Michael finds her and gets her to the hospital. 9/11

Kristina. 7/11


Kristina stops by Sonny's office and asks him is he will take her to a trip to Manhattan. Sonny agrees, but he won't be able to do it until August. Kristina says that's fine, but she needs money for clothes. Sonny gives her $300. Kristina really wants the money to use for a trip to Las Vegas with Ethan.



Kristina: Don't worry. We have plenty of time to fight later. I'm actually here to support you. Michael told me about the hearing, how Jax is saying that it's dangerous for Joss to be around you. I want to tell the judge it isn't true.

Sonny: Really? How about the daughter who thinks that I'm a--butt? [Laughs]

Kristina: You're also a great Dad. You may be way overprotective and, sorry, more than a little sexist, but you love your kids, and you'd do anything to protect us. We all know that.

Sonny: Thanks, sweetheart.

Kristina: You're not a threat to Joss. She's lucky to have you in her life, and the judge needs to hear that.



Sonny and Alexis arrive at the Dominican Republic to rescue Kristina from a marriage to Ethan. It turns out that Ethan is just getting a divorce from Maya and Kristina went with him. Sonny and Alexis bring back both Kristina and Ethan. Sonny tells Kristina that Ethan is too old for her and she can't see him. Kristina gets in a fight with Sonny and tells him she's an adult now. Later, Sonny warns Ethan not to see Kristina.


Kristina: More than anything, I wish I could have spent more time with my Dad, like Michael did. I know that we don't agree on everything, but I know that you love me.

Sonny: I love you very much.



Sonny: How about this? As your Dad, I forbid you to see Ethan. How's that?

Kristina finds Ethan at Kelly's. 5/11

Kristina talks to Ethan. 5/11


Kristina: You're married to Brenda now. I'm not saying this to hurt you, but I'm just being realistic. I've seen it happen to a lot of my friends. Their dads get remarried and the new wife is perfectly nice, but she wants him with her. He gets pulled away and they have a new life together. And little by little, the kids just become visitors.

Sonny: Ok, I can't speak for other fathers, I can only speak for myself. My kids are not visitors in my life. They are the center of my life. And, yeah, I love Brenda and I'm married to Brenda and she joined the family. But it doesn't mean that when we have a family, it's going be separated from you and the boys. That's impossible. You kids are my heart, and a man cannot be separated from his own heart. Do you understand?

Kristina: Yeah, Dad.

Sonny: We clear on that?

Kristina: Clear.

Sonny: Can I get a hug on that?

Kristina: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: All right.

Kristina: I love you, Dad.

Sonny: I love you, too.

Kristina at Sonny and Brenda's Wedding. 2/11


Kristina: It hurts to be the reason someone dies.

Sonny: Well, you know, maybe I don't know exactly how you feel because I've never been as kind or as innocent as you. But I know what it's like when someone dies and you feel guilty about it. I mean, people like us, we take it on ourselves.

Kristina: Everybody loses someone. But Ali hadn't even had her 18th birthday yet.

Sonny: You want answers, right? Why them instead of me, what you could have done to stop it, especially when someone's young. When my friend Stone died, I knew that the world would be different without him. He died of AIDS. And if they just could have done something sooner, he might have lived. And I blame myself.

Kristina: I hadn't known that.

Sonny: Maybe I don't know exactly what you're feeling, but I have a pretty good idea.

Kristina: Does the hurt ever go away?

Sonny: You know, in time, it softens. One day goes by, a week, a month, and you don't think about them. And then you feel guilty because you think you're going to forget them, but the truth is, you never forget. What you have to do, ok, is you have to remember your friend in a way that it doesn't tear your heart out. Come here, give me a hug. Come here.



Sonny: You okay?

Kristina: Ali mentioned that her head was hurting, and I . . .

Sonny: They've taken her to the emergency, okay, sweetie?

Kristina: It's my fault.

Sonny: No, no, no, it's not your fault. Why do you say that?

Kristina: I was the one who pushed Ali on Michael. The only reason she came on this trip was because I told her to.

Sonny: Kristina . . .

Kristina: And Michael didn't even want me to set them up.

Sonny: Kristina, you did not know that the bus was gonna crash.

Kristina: But Ali mentioned that her head was hurting, and nobody even noticed because they were worried about my hypothermia. [Sobbing] And there she was, walking around with her brain bleeding. And nobody even knew how bad she was...

Sonny: Sweetheart . . .

Kristina: Because they were focused on me.

Sonny: Sweetheart, it was an accident, okay? Everybody did the best they could. You can't feel guilty for something that you couldn't do anything about. Okay. . . okay, all right, all right. It's okay, okay?

[Kristina sobbing]

Sonny: It's okay.


Kristina is taken to the hospital after the bus crash. 1/11


Kristina: Michael said he knew. You told him the truth the night it happened. That's all I wanted, the truth. For someone to just be honest. But Michael kept on lying.

Sonny: Your brother wanted to protect you--

Kristina: Please, just let me get this out.

Sonny: I'm sorry.

Kristina: I know. I forgive you. It was my fault.

Sonny: No, it wasn't your fault, sweetheart.

Kristina: Everyone tried to warn me that pretending to be with Johnny was a bad idea, that it could get someone killed. But I didn't listen. I kept pushing and pushing until. . .

Sonny: Stop. Stop. I'm the one who made the choice to go after Johnny.

Kristina: By trying to protect me because I was playing some stupid game. I'm sorry.

Sonny: I'm sorry. I'm sorry for letting it get to this point, where you can't even talk to your dad. I've made a lot of mistakes in my life, and the worst one was to think that you were better off without me, because you grew up thinking that I don't love you. And the truth is... that I love you... more than anything.

Alexis: Is everything all right?

Kristina: Yes. Dad and I are finally okay.


Kristina talks to Taylor. 9/10


Sonny: What are you doing here, sweetheart?

Kristina: I heard you came back. And I wanted to know why. Michael said you jumped bail because no one believed that you shot Johnny in self-defense.

Sonny: That was part of it.

Kristina: So why risk coming back now?

Sonny: Because I wanted to prove my innocence. I didn't want my kids to think I was a coward for shooting an unarmed man.

Kristina: You didn't say good-bye. It's weird. I thought I'd be glad that you were gone. No more fights or forced family dinners. But when it really started to sink in that I might never see you again, I regretted all those months that I spent hating you, making you so crazy that you went after Johnny.

Sonny: This was not your fault at all, sweetheart.

Kristina: I'm glad you came back. Michael needs you.

Sonny: I'm gonna do everything I can to be the best dad I can be to all you guys. And don't you ever forget that I love you, okay?

Kristina: Where did you go?

Sonny: To get some perspective.

Kristina: I guess it worked. You came back.

Sonny: Yeah, I got some good advice.



Kristina: Is this who I think it is?

Sonny: Who do you think it is?

Kristina: Brenda Barrett.

Sonny: Yeah.

Kristina: She's dating Murphy Sinclair, and she's the new face for Cartullo. She also has something to do with that children's charity, ASEC. Why is her photo on your laptop?

Sonny: It's kind of a long story.

Kristina: You used to go out with her a long time ago, didn't you?

Sonny: Yeah.



Kristina: The instructor insisted that I see a doctor. I'm sure he's just worried about getting sued.

Sonny: Okay, I'm gonna get a doctor for you.

Kristina: Oh, thanks, but I can handle it.

Sonny: Are you sure?

Kristina: Yeah. I'll be fine.

Sonny: Okay. Kristina, you got your cell phone? You're gonna call me if you need me?

Kristina: I will. I promise.



Sonny: What he did to Kristina was no accident. She went to the hospital twice because your son beat the hell out of her like an animal.

Warren: Kristina knows the truth.

Sonny: And so do you, because abusers aren't born. They're taught. You get hit enough, eventually, you hit back.

Warren: More baseless accusations. I can see how Kristina comes by her lying so naturally.

Sonny: I can see the truth all over your face. You knew damn well that your son was capable of doing what he did to Kristina, and you did nothing. You want to know why? Because you hit Kiefer first.

Warren: I never hit Kiefer.

Sonny: The hell you didn't. It's all starting to make sense now. The way Kiefer would lay into Kristina, beat her up so bad that she couldn't look in the mirror for weeks-- that kind of rage comes from deep down inside, from years of getting hit. Ironically, I'm starting to have a little more compassion for Kiefer, 'cause I know what it's like to be a scared little boy getting the hell beat out of you by a man your mother's too afraid to leave.

Warren: My son was nothing like you.

Sonny: You're right, because I've never raised a hand to a woman. But you sure as hell did. You taught your son Kiefer that a fist to the face is the way to handle things, and I'm sure that he hated you for it. Just like he hated himself every time he hit you, sweetheart.


Sonny: What's on your mind?

Kristina: Did you really mean what you said about feeling sorry for Kiefer?

Sonny: Warren Bauer was a pig who didn't have a problem taking out his anger on women and kids. And that pushes a lot of buttons in me.

Kristina: So, you honestly feel sorry for him?

Sonny: I hate that Kiefer laid a hand on you, but I can understand where he's coming from a little bit better now. That rage is . . . you know, you try to stuff it down. I'm sure he was trying to cover how badly he was hurt because he wanted to prove to his father that he wasn't weak, and then he took it out on you.

Kristina: I could see Kiefer hated hurting me. He just didn't know how to stop.

Sonny: He needed help. And I tell you, if he was still alive, I don't know. Maybe I would get him some help.

Kristina: That means a lot to me. Kiefer did awful things, but he wasn't an awful person.

Sonny: Neither am I.



Kristina: Don't freak out. Taylor didn't do anything to me. I just had a stupid reaction to nothing at all.

Alexis: He seems like a really nice guy. He just reached for a book or sudden motion or something and it scared her. That's all.

Sonny: No, I know how it works. Sudden moves trigger memory of being hit. It's like watching a fist coming to your face in slow motion but it's fast at the same time.

Kristina: Exactly. Does it ever go away?

Sonny: Gradually it will. And then you'll get to the point where at least you don't flinch when somebody scratches their head, you know. I know what it's about.


Sonny: You hate me? I can live with that. What I can't live with is Johnny using you.


Kristina. 6/10

Kristina wants Sonny to pay for being "abusive." No matter what people say to dispute her claims, she doesn't believe anyone. To get revenge on her father, she wants Sonny to believe that she is going out with Johnny Zacchara. When asked why she's doing this to her father, she says, "Because I want to torment my father."


Sonny: Right. I'm not proud of that, and, you know, I get angry, and I say things and do things that I regret. But I know where to draw the line, because I have I've lived with abuse, and I know how it can accelerate words to fists. But you need to understand that I would never cross the line. I'm not a perfect man at all, and I don't hit women. And I don't want you to think that I do. And I don't want you to be in an abusive relationship because you think it's okay because of our relationship. I know this is a very complicated situation, and I'm not really equipped to understand the nuances of what you're going through. But I just want you to know that I'm your Dad, and I love you. And all I want to do is help you. So I was thinking maybe I could go with you to the session again, and we could just work through this.

Kristina: No, thank you.


Kristina: Dr. Spaulding thought this was a good idea, but if you don't want to go . . .

Sonny: No, I'm going to go, because I'm your Dad, and I want to help you through this.

Kristina: It may be kind of uncomfortable for you.

Sonny: Nope. I'm doing it because I'll keep an open mind. Let's go.


Kristina: Okay, Dad. Who are you?

Sonny: Who am I? I like swimming. I like to go out to the water. I like to go to, you know, my island. I'm a pretty good cook. I like to be in the kitchen with all my ingredients. Maybe I could teach you how to cook. What do you think?

Kristina: See, I hate when you do this. You build me up for some big father-daughter bond that's never going to happen.

Sonny: What do you want from me, sweetheart?



Sonny: I just want the best for you. And it kills me that you dated a guy who hit you and abused you. I wish I had known.

Kristina: I kept it a secret from everyone. I'm still working on why. But I'm seeing a therapist to figure it out.

Sonny: You know, maybe I could have helped a little bit if I was there for you like a father should be. You try to do the best you can with your kids and you love them with all of your heart. And somehow, you know, it just keeps going wrong.


With Skye's urging, Kristina goes to the Haunted Star and apologizes to Ethan for accusing him of being the one to abuse her. Ethan is understanding.


Kristina continues to recover from her injuries for Kiefer's last beating. Alexis confesses to Kristina that she hit Kiefer with her car, but she didn't mean to kill him. Kristina accepts her mother's actions. Kristina starts therapy.



Sonny: I was listening to her, right? I didn't want her to see me, and I hear she's crying, my little girl in so much pain. Then she tells Dante that Kiefer had been hitting her for months, slapping her around whenever she would make him mad. Then she starts to cry, and she says it was her fault. At that moment, I wanted to grab Kiefer and just kind of squeeze his neck. Kristina lied, said it was Ethan to cover for Kiefer. She did more than my mother ever did to protect Deke, and I gotta ask myself why. I sold my soul for the power to punish my enemies. Why, why would anyone want to protect the person who hurt them?



Sonny: Okay. Really? You don't believe your Dad? Okay. Ask anybody who knows me. I said to myself when I was a little boy that I would never hit a woman, and I've kept that promise.



Sonny: Ok, sweetheart, what do you want?

Kristina: I want it to be over. I don't want to have to go through a trial. I don't want Ethan to die because of me.

Sonny: Where do you come up with this stuff, sweetheart?

Kristina: Oh, please don't act like it's not what you're thinking. I don't want Ethan to be punished.

Sonny: You sound just like your grandmother.

Kristina: What do you mean?

Sonny: My mother used to get beat up by my stepfather, and she used to end up in the hospital, okay? And no matter what, she would protect him. No matter how much he hurt her.

Kristina: You never told me.

Sonny: I don't like talking about it, you know?

Kristina: Then you do know how I feel. Every time I talk about it, it's like reliving it.

Sonny: Come here. Ok, listen to me.

Kristina: I'm sorry about what happened to your mom and that you had to go through that with her. But you asked how you can help me and I just want this to be over. Please?



Sonny: Seeing you like this reminds me of my mother. And the beatings she took from my stepfather. He locked me in a closet, and I would peak through the crack in the door and I'd see my mother . . . shielding her face, because she didn't want to be hit anymore. And my stepfather would just beat on her. And then she'd fall to the ground, crawl up like a ball, and I said to myself, when I grow up, when I get strong enough, I'm never going to let anybody that I love go through this. I'm sorry, sweetheart. I know how terrible it felt. How desperate you feel. None of my kids were ever supposed to go through anything like this. 3/16/10


ABC Soaps in Depth (April 19, 2010)

Standout Scenes. These moments really caught us by surprise.

GH. Sonny Relives the Past!

Seeing the little girl he brought into the world lying helpless in a hospital bed with swollen eyes and a bloodied face was more than General Hospital tough guy Sonny could take. He slowly approached and stared down at her. Shaking his head in disbelief at the sight, he whispered, “My God, you look just like your grandmother.” He gently touched her hair, then knelt close by her. Emotions swept over him, but he did everything in his power to keep them at bay. For the longest time, he just looked at her face and took in the horror of her beating. Then, he pulled a stool close to the bed and sat. Memories of his troubled childhood rushed through his head, all of which brought him to the moment he was now experiencing with his daughter. “Seeing you like this reminds me of my mother and the beatings she took from my stepfather,” he said softly. “He locked me in the closet, and I would peek through the crack in the door and see my mother shielding her face because she didn’t want to be hit anymore.” The words, along with the memories, pained him, even decades later. Anxiety slowly built as if he was reliving the gruesome past. He continued: ”My stepfather would just beat on her, and then she’d fall to the ground, curl up like a ball. And I said to myself, “When I grow up, when I get strong enough, I’m never going to let anybody that I love go through this. I’m sorry, sweetheart. I know how terrible it felt. How desperate you feel. None of my kids were every supposed to go through anything like this.” No longer able to hold it in, he sobbed. Moments like this, when Sonny crumbles in pain rather than explode in rage, really show what he’s made of. There’s a caring heart of a damaged child inside of that finely-tailored black suit, and when Maurice Benard reveals it, it’s truly heartbreaking.

Kristina gets ready to go out. 3/10

Sonny: I know we're feeling our way together, and that's fine. But there are some things that are non-negotiable. Your attitude, for one. You can feel the way you feel about me. You can be angry with me. But I am your father, and I will not allow you to disrespect me or challenge me.

Kristina: I'm sorry. Would you like to sit down?


Kristina and Kiefer 3/10

Kristina continues to get physically abused by her boyfriend, Kiefer. 2/10

Sonny wants to invite Kristina to Christmas dinner, but Kristina tells him she has other plans. 12/09


Sonny: Here's the thing, I make your mom nervous.

Kristina: You make me nervous sometimes, too.

Sonny: Well, you know how to fix that? I'll tell you. By spending more time together.


Kristina's in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend Kiefer. 11/09

Kristina and Alexis have a mother and daughter talk. 10/09


Sonny: You're right. I was wrong. Every child needs their father. And out of anybody, I should remember that. I did everything I could. I mean, I honored your mother's wishes, and it ended up hurting you. I apologize. I didn't mean that to happen. If I can go back and do it differently, I would, but that's not possible. The only thing I can do now is just move forward and try to be the best dad I can be for you. If, you know, you're still interested.


Sonny: How are you feeling, sweetheart?

Kristina: Happy to be safe. I can't believe you're here.

Sonny: Where else would I be? You're my daughter. I love you.

Kristina: I love you, too, Dad.


Sonny: All right, so just you and your old man, right?

Kristina: I like it.

Sonny: All we need now is spooky music.

Kristina: Whoo. Heh.

Fortune teller: I prefer Mozart. How may I help you?

Sonny: Well, uh, young lady here, she wants her fortune told.

Fortuneteller: Does she?

Sonny: Yeah.

Fortuneteller: Or is that her father's wish? You are her father.

Sonny: Good guess.

Fortuneteller: You will pay later once you decide what the telling was worth.

Sonny: All right.

Fortune teller: Please sit.

Kristina: You don't really see anything in there, do you?

Fortune teller: It's all for show. It helps people like your father feel comfortable. That way, they can tell themselves it was all a gimmick. Now, give me your hands. You are a child of privilege, but little satisfies you. You feel alone, abandoned, and misunderstood. I hear a desperate cry for help, a cry that will be heard, but not one that will help you in any way. You have lived on the edge of violence for most of your life. That will not change.

Sonny: I guess you know who I am.

Fortuneteller: I have never seen you before, and this not your future. What I see involves this young woman. The danger is real, and it is here today. It will come from where you least expect it.



Sonny: Like I said before, I don't want you blaming yourself for the accident.

Kristina: Dad, I'm the one who forced Claudia’s car off the road. Your baby died and it's my fault.

Sonny: Okay, listen. You needed your father to support you. I wasn't there to give you that. If you want to blame anybody, you're gonna blame me. If I had spent more time with you, none of this would have happened.

Kristina: You don't know that.

Sonny: What I do know is that you needed a father and I wasn’t there. I let circumstances keep us apart, and I should have been in your life.


Kristina runs away with Michael to Mexico. Michael thinks he's killed Claudia's baby, but Kristina is actually the one responsible. 8/09

Sonny comforts Kristina.

Sonny: I heard about Kristina. Is she okay?

Alexis: I was going to call you. I'm a little overwhelmed. I was going to tempt her with her favorite. She loves French toast.

Sonny: Yeah?

Alexis: But she's not eating, and she's not sleeping, and she woke up crying because she had a nightmare.

Sonny: Well, that's not good.

Alexis: No, I'm going to take her to see Lainey this afternoon. So I'm hoping that she'll make her feel better, huh?

Sonny: When you feel better, then you can tell us what's going on, right? Because, you know, all anybody wants to know is what's happening, okay? You know why we want to help? Because we love you. (2/15/08).


Sonny: You know what I've been thinking about? Nobody has Christmas trees. So I think we should do something about that. You want to go shopping for a Christmas tree? You do the picking? Yeah, well, you can. You'd like that? You can get a small one or a big one. We can get a big tree for your house and a small tree for my house. What do you think about that? No? Ok, how about two small ones? Two big ones? See, you're just like your Daddy, because I like big trees, too. So tomorrow, you know what we're going to do? We're going to go get the biggest Christmas tree we've ever seen in our lives. You want to do that?

(Sonny visits Kristina. 12/8/06).


Sonny: I heard about Kristina.

Alexis: Come outside. Kristina saw Sam shoot Diego.

Sonny: What?

Alexis: When I got there, she was in shock. I had to pry her out of Sam's arms. She wouldn't even come to me, and she hasn't said a word since.

Sonny: How come she's not in the hospital?

Alexis: Because Dr. Winters thought it would be better if I brought her here so she could be in familiar surroundings.

Sonny: Okay, I want to talk to her. Hey, beautiful little girl. Happy birthday. Guess what? I got your birthday present in the car. You want to go get it? You'd probably rather open the present with your brothers tomorrow? Huh? Well, you know what? You don't have to decide anything right now. You know why? Because all I want you to do is get some rest. Daddy loves you.

(Sonny comforts Kristina. 11/20/06).

Sonny visits Kristina when Alexis is in the hospital. 9/15/06).


Alexis: Good night, sweetheart. I love you.

Sonny: Good night, princess.

Alexis: You made her feel really safe. Thank you.

Sonny: That's the least I can do.


Maitre d': Well, folks, the emergency power is up and running. The elevator's still aren't working. Now, the stairwell doors and the emergency lights are operational, so anybody who wants to go to their rooms is more than welcome to do so. Thanks for your help.

Sonny: Alexis? What'd you say about choice?

Alexis: I want to get Kristina back home.

Sonny: All right, let me do that for you. Hey, hey. Hey, sweetheart. I'm going to pick you up, ok? Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Alexis: She's a very special girl.

Sonny: You sure you're okay?

Alexis: I'm better than I was, thank you.

(Sonny comforts Kristina during a blackout. He makes her a bed with two chairs and carries her to bed 8/14/06).

"I love you, girl."

Waitress: Have you guys decided yet?

Sonny: Yeah, I think we're going to have your world famous ice cream.

Waitress: Ooh. And I'll make sure you get some with sprinkles.

Sonny: It's been a long time since we spent time together, huh?

Kristina: Why couldn't I come and see you?

Sonny: Well, because I was sick. But I'm better now.

Kristina: Mommy's sick, too.

Sonny: So your mother's been sick, huh? What kind of sick? Like, she's got a cold? Sniffles?

Kristina: She coughs all the time, even at night.

Sonny: Yeah? She did she call a doctor?

Kristina: She said she's allergic to her building.

Sonny: Is that what she told you? Well, you don't have to worry about it , you know why? Because I think I'm think allergic to the police department. (Kristina laughs).

(Sonny spends time with Kristina at the Metro Court. When they are having ice cream, Alexis arrives and there is a power outage 8/11/06).

Kristina and Alexis 2006.


Kristina: Daddy, did you make your wish yet?

Kristina: Happy birthday.

Sonny: Hey. Thank you.

(Kristina obviously adores her father at his birthday party 4/21/06).


Kristina: Daddy!

Sonny: I'm all right. How you doing, sweetheart?

Michael: Hey, guess what. You guys get to come home with us.

Sonny: Yeah, your mama and Ric are going to stay here for a little while, okay? But they're doing a lot better. I just saw them, and I'm going to bring you home for a few days, okay?

Michael: We got some new games for Christmas. You can be on my team against my dad.

Sonny: Two against one? That's not fair.

(Sonny takes Kristina and Molly home from the hospital during the virus outbreak. 2/16/06)


Sonny: You going to give your Daddy a Christmas hug? All right.

Kristina: I love you.

Sonny: I love you, too. Don't you forget that, okay?


During the emotional dedication ceremony for Michael at the park, Kristina takes a peek at her father. (3/28/05).

Michael is your Guardian Angel 3/05.

"Michael's in Heaven."

Sonny: So, do you want me to tell you a story? OK. What happened was Michael went to live with god and the angels. He loved you very much and he wanted to stay here, but you know what? God decided that it was time for Michael to live with him in heaven. So he's in a beautiful place right now. There's . . . you know, there's no fear, there's no anger. There's just light and goodness and he's going to be there forever. Forever. But, you know, anytime that you think of Michael, anytime that you think of him, he'll always be right there with you. He's looking down on all of us right now. And I'll tell you another thing about him. He will always keep on loving you from heaven. 3/14/05

Sonny: When I first saw this, I said to myself, "Kristina would love this." You see this? I was walking on the sand, right, and it was washed up on the beach. And usually they got holes in them because they got scratches, but this one is perfectly beautiful, just like you are. You want to hear what's inside of there? Put that to your ear here, this way. What's in there are the waves and the ocean. Can you hear that? Shhh. You know what? One day, I'm going to take you to the island. Would you like that? A little bit? But you know what? You're going to be visiting here with your brothers a lot. You can play with your brothers, you can spend a lot of time with your papa. Because we missed two years, but you know what? We got the rest of our lives together. 1/24/05


Father Coates: Parents, you have asked that Kristina be baptized. Now, in doing so, you are accepting responsibilities of teaching her the practices of the faith. It will be your duty to raise her to live by god's commandments, as Christ taught us. Teach her to love god and all our neighbors. You clearly understand what I'm asking you to do?

Sonny: Yes, we do.  

Father Coates: All right. I baptize you, Kristina Adela Corinthos Davis, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. 

Sonny: Amen. 12/24/04


The first thing Sonny does with Kristina is introduce her to her brothers and spend time decorating the Christmas tree with her. 

Sonny: Come over here, come over here! Ok, remember Michael? That's your older brother. This is Morgan, your younger brother. 12/17/04

Finally, after three years, Sonny holds his daughter in his arms. He won legal visitation rights and will now begin to get to know Kristina. 

Sonny: It was never my intention to take Kristina from her mother. I just want to be a father to my child. And, look, what really matters here is Kristina. I mean, she needs to know who her father is, she needs to be able to play with her brothers, to know that they love them, and like it or not, I'm part of Kristina. She needs to know where she came from and how important her father is to her. But she also needs her mother, your honor. 12/15/04

Sonny spends some time with Kristina, who is still recovering at the hospital. He brings her an advent calendar. 11/30/04
Sonny: Do you know that my mother, Kristina, your grandmother, ordered these through the parish? And it would be delivered in the mail by the end of November. And my mother would put the envelope on top of the windowsill. She wouldn't let me touch it till December 1, and then we'd hang it on the back of a cupboard door. And every time before dinner we would open the door like this, right, and we'd see what was inside. You see that? And I tell you, my mother's face would just light up like a little kid, she was so excited. You know what, Kristina? She had a smile just like yours.

Kristina's on the road to recovery, thanks to her father. 11/10/04   

Sonny: There. There you go. You did great. Doctor says everything went perfect. In a couple of weeks, you'll be playing on the swings. You're going to meet your brothers for the first time. And as soon as you're ready, I'm going to take you home with me. 11/10/04

Sonny prays for his daughter at the church chapel. 11/2/04

Heavenly father, please look down on my child today. Give Kristina the courage and the hope and the strength to hold on. She's a good little girl. As for me, my children need me no matter what kind of life I lead or what I've done. All I can do is pray for grace and for patience. Help me with my anger. Help me keep it inside. Anger's not going to do anything. It's not going to help my daughter. It's only going to tear apart the people I love most. My children need a good father right now. Show me how to be that. Kristina wouldn't be in this world if it wasn't for me. Please don't take her back. Let my daughter live. The father, the son, and the holy spirit, Amen.

When Kristina's life is in jeopardy, Sonny is finally told he is her father. 11/2/04

Sonny: Hi, Kristina. Hi. Remember me? I'm Sonny. I've become a very important part of your life. I'm your Daddy now. Remember at the hospital when I held you up to see the newborn babies, and then we talked? I knew right then what a special little girl you are. I'm sorry I didn't know the truth before. A lot of grownups have made mistakes. That's all over now. I'm here for you, and I'm going to find a way to make you better. And when you're all well, we're going to get to know each other a little better. I will never leave you, I promise. And from now on for the rest of your life, you're going to be my little girl.

Sonny encounters his daughter for the third time in front of Kelly's, very drawn to this little girl, still in the dark that she is his biological child.  7/30/04

Sonny: Hey. What are you doing here? Huh? Remember me? Sonny? We were looking at babies at the hospital? You're such a cute girl. You didn't come here by yourself. Where's your Mama? 

Kristina: Mama here.

Sonny: Mama here? Where?

Kristina: There.

Sonny: All right, come here.

Viola: Kris . . . oh, thank goodness. I swear, I turn away for one second and she's out the door.

Sonny: I know how kids are. I got two boys of my own. One's always running off, you know.

Sonny: So, Kristina? What's her favorite? She like chocolate chip? Do you like chocolate chip? Oatmeal? What? It's my treat.

Alexis: I'll bring one home for her myself.  

Sonny: I'm not going to steal her.

Sonny sees his daughter for the second time, still not knowing she is his child. 7/2/04

Sonny: Hey, Kristina. Huh? Where's your Mama? You want to look at the babies? Come here. Can you get up over here?

Kristina: Right here?

Sonny: Yeah. Can you get up here? I can try to help you. Look at the babies.

Kristina: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: They're all babies, huh?

Kristina: A baby. 

Sonny: Yeah. You used to be a baby. Now you're all grown up. Which one do you like the best? Huh? 

Kristina: Baby sleeping? 

Sonny: Yeah, baby's sleeping. She's going to wake up and she's going to call for her mommy, right?

Kristina: Her mommy?

Sonny: Yeah, her mommy. You probably did that. You probably woke up and said, "Mommy."

Finally. . . Sonny sees his daughter for the first time. However, it is a bittersweet moment, as he still doesn't know Kristina is his daughter.

Sonny: Hi.  
Alexis: You haven't seen her in a while.  This is Kristina.
Sonny: She's beautiful. Beautiful eyes. You must love her very much.
Alexis: I do. I would do pretty much anything for her.
Sonny: Yeah.
Kristina: Mommy . . . more.
Alexis:  Here's more, sweetie.  Here you go. There.   
Sonny: You know this bonding thing you and Carly have all of a sudden? The sisterhood of motherly love? Anybody ever tell you about a father's love? A mother fights for her children. A father wages full-scale war. A man's family is everything. It's his pride, his legacy. It's what he's accomplished in this world. More important than the money he's earned or the power he's gained. A man's family is his identity. If you force his hand, he just doesn't want to win. He will have to destroy everything and everyone who gets in his way.
