Erica/Sonny - "Love in a Time of Claustrophobia"Edit
Erica Kane, from Pine Valley, PA is in an elevator at her "Woman of the Year" award ceremony. She has to give a speech and is very anxious. Outside the elevator, Sonny Corinthos, from [[Port Charles|Port Charles, NY], is talking on his cell phone to Jason Morgan and tells him, "Let me worry about finding the alibi, you get rid of the evidence." Sonny then enters the elevator and hits the emergency stop button and starts kissing Erica. Erica pushes him off and asks, "What do you think you're doing?". Sonny then says, "For the camera; we need to look like we're all over each other." Erica then realizes it's Sonny Corinthos and says that he is on the news a lot for his "coffee business." Sonny then asks her to be his "alibi," and Erica reply's, "I was just named Woman of the Year. I do NOT makeout with mobsters. So, if you don't get this thing moving, I'm afraid I'm the one who's going to need an alibi." Sonny then tries to start the elevator, but it doesn't work! Sonny starts to panic, due to his claustrophobia. Erica then tells him to calm down and relax. Erica then asks him if he has any kids and he replies, "four," and shows her a picture of Kristina Corinthos-Davis, Michael Corinthos, and Morgan Benson. Erica then asks where his other son is. Sonny tells Erica he didn't meet him until recently and that his son dislikes him. Erica then says she can relate due to her long-lost daughter, Kendall. She says Kendall used to hate her, but now they are closer than ever. Erica then tells him there is still hope for Sonny and his son. The elevator then starts working, they wave at each other, and exit.
