Storylines

Robin first met Jason Quartermaine before the accident that turned him into Jason Morgan. After Jason's accident and memory loss, Robin was by his side to help him as he recovered. Jason began working for Sonny Corinthos and soon after Jason and Robin began to date. Due to the fact that Robin was HIV-positive, Jason began to sleep with Carly Roberts but Jason chose to be with Robin instead.

Jason and Carly still remained friends. Jason, working for Sonny, discovered that drugs were being imported, which caused his sister, Emily to collapse. Due to the fact that the mob was too much for Robin, the couple split up but Jason held a promise never to be romantically involved with Carly.

To help Carly, Jason pretended to be the father of her baby so that neither of the two men that she slept with could take her baby away. Robin returned to Port Charles and Jason confessed that the child was A.J.'s according to a paternity test but would still like to be the child's father until Carly can take care of her son. Jason and Robin reunited and made love for the first time.

After Robin was almost killed in an explosion, Jason left the mob. Carly was released from the hospital and began to put a strain on Jason and Robin's relationship. Robin told AJ that he was Michael's father in an attempt to free Jason and the baby from Carly. This sent Carly into depression and she left town. Jason and Robin take care of baby Michael together and bond over this time but Jason temporarily lost custody of Michael. Jason was furious with Robin for telling A.J. that Michael was his son. Their relationship deteriorated and Robin left town in 1999, moving to Paris.
