Eve: Hey.

Ian: Morning.

Eve: How's it going?

Ian: All right.

Eve: Hey, you know what? I know that you're upset about last night, what happened with Harris, but --

Ian: I'm not upset. Just -- the thought of you being with that man --

Eve: It never got that far, ok?

Ian: Well, but it could've gone that far. I care what happens to you.

Eve: I care about -- I just -- want us to be ok.

Ian: We will be.

Eve: Really? You sound so sure.

Ian: I am. While you were sleeping last night, I figured something out.

Eve: You found a cure?

Ian: Yeah, if my calculations are correct, and I think they are.

Eve: Oh, great, let me see it.

Ian: No, I got to go show it to --

Eve: Ok, I'll go with you.

Ian: No, why don't you start packing?

Eve: You know what, I don't trust Harris one minute.

Ian: Lambert --

Eve: If I --

Ian: Please. This time I make the deals.

Kevin: Victor.

Victor: I didn't mean to startle you. I just came by --

Kevin: I know why you came by. And you're not going to talk me out of leaving Port Charles.

Victor: Oh, I -- I didn't really think I could. But I do have a way for you to take the people who love you along.

Lucy: Oh, Livvie, hi. I'm so glad you could make it.

Livvie: Somehow I don't think you asked me here for breakfast.

Lucy: Uh, no. But, listen, if you're hungry, I will buy you a Christmas buffet. They have a great one here today.

Livvie: Look, if this is about Kevin leaving, I told you last night -- there is nothing I can do to stop him.

Lucy: I know. I know what you told me, but I think you just being there would make a huge difference.

Livvie: Being where?

Lucy: Well, see, I had this idea. I thought, what if we had kind of an intervention, for lack of a better word, and got a group of us, of people together, you know, just to tell him how much --

Livvie: But, Lucy, you heard Kevin. He was real clear about not wanting any help from me. From any of us.

Lucy: Livvie, please --

Livvie: Look, I'm sorry, but whatever you're planning, you'll just have to do it without me.

Jamal: I know I said you can count on me. I know. And you can. Look, I -- look, I've done everything you wanted. Look, would you just -- just give me a break, all right? Tonight I just want to be with my girl.

Alison: Look, like I said, I will do whatever it takes, just as long as you pay me in cash. Yes, I know what you want me to wear. No, no, I -- I'm up for it. It's just -- I've never done anything like this before. Yeah, I'm sure it will be fun for them. Nothing. I have to go. I'll see you there.

Jamal: Yeah, yeah, I hear you. I hear you, man. Hey, hey, a job's a job, right? Yeah. Yeah, yeah, no, yeah, I'll be there. All right.

Alison: That your boss?

Jamal: Yeah. Yeah, I tried switching things around, but it didn't work out. I'm sorry.

Alison: No! No, Jamal, that's fine. We have all day tomorrow to celebrate Christmas. Don't worry about it. It's ok.

Jamal: No, but I wanted to spend, you know, do something tonight.

Alison: Oh. Could you be any cuter? Could you?

Jamal: Well, I knew you'd be missing your family and everything.

Alison: Oh, please. My folks were never there. And it was, you know, me and Nana. Woo-hoo! Big deal. Of course, you know, she'd always bail right after dinner and run right over to the Quartermaines'. I always knew that I was invited, you know, but I felt really bad for our cook. She was the one who was really alone, you know?

Jamal: Hmm.

Alison: So we'd stay and we'd hang out, watch "It's a Wonderful Life," which would always make us cry.

Jamal: You're so cute.

Alison: Oh. What about you? What did your family do?

Jamal: Oh. Man, when Mom was alive, she would just -- even when times were hard, she would just bake for days. I mean, she'd make the turkey and the stuffing and she'd have the pies and she'd bake the little cookies with -- in the shape of the little -- what do you call them? -- the little reindeer --

Alison: Oh.

Jamal: And the little Santas and stuff.

Alison: Well, did you help and stuff?

Jamal: You kidding me? I was the Picasso of cookie decorating, what.

Alison: Oh!

Jamal: I'd put your one eye there and one eye there and -- you know, it was the happiest times for my Mom.

Alison: You really miss her, huh?

Jamal: Yeah.

Alison: Hmm.

Jamal: Hmm.

Alison: I want to make this a happy time for you again. Ok? And I will, too, I promise.

Joe: Hey, good morning.

Gabriela: Yes, it is.

Joe: Hmm. I loved waking up next to you.

Gabriela: Hmm. I loved falling asleep with you. In fact, I loved everything about last night.

Joe: Hmm. Well, you weren't -- you weren't disappointed that we -- that we couldn't --

[Joe sighs]

Joe: You know, that we didn't make love?

Gabriela: Who says we didn't?

Joe: Yeah, good point.

Gabriela: I am disappointed about one thing, though.

Joe: Yeah, what?

Gabriela: Well, I have been awake for two minutes now and I still have not heard my three favorite words.

Joe: Your coffee, madam?

Gabriela: No.

Joe: Scrambled or fried?

Gabriela: Joe!

Joe: All right, all right. Uh, wait -- oh, wait, it couldn't be -- it couldn't be I love you?

Joe: I love you.

Gabriela: I love you, too.

Gabriela: So, where's that coffee? We have a big day ahead of us.

Joe: I've got a big day, meeting your family for the first time, all 50 of them.

Gabriela: Oh, trust me, they'll love you.

Joe: Yeah, like Emilio?

[Knock on door]

Joe: Oh, wait, that's probably him now with a shotgun.

Gabriela: Oh, stop it. I don't know who that could be.

Gabriela: Lucy, hi.

Lucy: Gabby, hi. Oh -- Joe. This is great. I caught you two together.

Gabriela: Come in, come in.

Lucy: Thank you very much.

Gabriela: Sure.

Lucy: I am obviously interrupting, as I'm wont to do and I know it's Christmas Eve and all, but, listen, I really need to ask you a favor.

Gabriela: Sure, what is it?

Lucy: Are you guys free a little later?

Joe: Later today?

Lucy: Yeah. You know, it's really, really, really, really important. Ok, so, this looks like there's no way, huh?

Joe: Sorry, Lucy, we've already made other plans.

Victor: It's a photo album I put together. I figured you could haul it out every once in a while if you get to missing your friends or family.

Kevin: Thank you. And thanks for understanding why I'm leaving.

Victor: Well, I'm not going to pretend it makes me very happy, but I know all too well how it is when everywhere you look there's a reminder.

Kevin: I loved her, Victor.

Victor: And she loved you, very much.

Kevin: I know. But that's not the only reason I'm leaving.

Victor: I don't understand.

Kevin: Victor, the last few months, everything that's happened and -- especially the way I handled it, I've just -- I've just come to see that there's things about me that I hate -- the dark and destructive things. The things that hurt people before I'll let them get too close.

Victor: What are you talking about? You never intend to hurt anyone. You are a kind, caring, loving person I am so proud to call my son. If you won't believe that, you'd better believe this -- no matter who you are or think you are, leaving town is not going to solve anything. It'll follow you wherever you go.

Kevin: I don't have any choice, Victor. I have to go before I ruin everything that I've ever loved.

Harris: Thornhart, care to join me for a bloody Mary?

Ian: Little early for me. And you shouldn't be drinking, either.

Harris: Oh, I'm touched by your concern.

Ian: If you want to beat this thing, you'd better start listening to me.

Harris: Oh. What good is surviving the poison going to do me? I'm sure it may kill the parasite, but, as you astutely pointed out, doctor, unless you find the cure --

Ian: I have found it. That's why I'm here.

Harris: You have it? You found the cure?

Ian: Yeah. I've got the formula right here. And you want to know what I'm going to do with it?

Harris: You're going to give it to me.

Ian: Let me show you.

Victor: Believe me, I know what it's like to think that your loved ones would be better off without you, but think of -- think of the people whose lives you've touched, the people who love you.

Kevin: Victor, I appreciate the pep talk. But this isn't self-pity. It's about those people who don't deserve to be hurt.

Victor: What makes you so sure you're going to hurt anyone?

Kevin: My wife is dead! My daughter's an emotional wreck. And Lucy almost died in a fire because of me!

Victor: Monk, that's much too simple. You can't blame yourself.

Kevin: I can blame myself and it is simple. None of those things would've happened if I hadn't made them happen. So let's just drop it, ok?

Victor: Ok. I said I wouldn't argue and look at me.

Kevin: Thank you.

Victor: Any idea where you're going?

Kevin: Looks like Denver. I'll let you know when I get there.

Victor: Promise me you won't leave before saying goodbye.

Kevin: I promise.

Victor: So I'll see you later.

Kevin: Yeah.

[Music plays] 

Harris: I hope you enjoyed your little game, Thornhart. You do realize you just destroyed the one thing that's keeping you alive! In fact, I can't think of one reason why I shouldn't have you shot in the head.

Ian: Ah, that's not a good idea.

Harris: Why not?

Ian: That's where your cure is -- right here. It's the only place it is.

Harris: Well, you think that's going to save you? I'll make Eve give me the --

Ian: Eve doesn't know.

[Harris sighs]

Harris: What is the purpose of this exercise? You will give me the cure.

Ian: Not until I get what I want.

Harris: You don't seem to understand, Thornhart! You and Eve will die if you don't do what I say!

Ian: Your threats mean nothing to me. You're going to kill me no matter what, and as far as Eve's concerned, I know what you have in store for her and it's not going to happen.

Harris: You have nothing to say as to what does or doesn't happen.

Ian: Here's the deal and it's nonnegotiable -- you let Eve go, and as soon as I get a call from her saying that she's safe and sound with her husband, I will give you the right amount of poison to kill the parasite. And then and only then will I give you the serum.

Harris: Then you'll have nothing left to bargain with for your freedom.

Ian: It's me you're after anyway, not her.

Harris: Ah. It's an interesting proposition. I'm surprised Eve went along with it knowing the lengths she went to on your behalf. Oh, that's something else you didn't tell her.

Ian: This is between us.

Harris: Never thought I'd see the day -- Ian Thornhart willing to lose to me for a woman?

[Harris laughs]

Harris: Uh, uh -- you're in love with her, aren't you?

Ian: I'm not interested in your theories on my motives. Do we have a deal or do we all die?

Harris: Only you would give your life for someone you can't have.

Ian: Don't change the flipping subject.

Harris: Life's cruel, isn't it? We all want as much of life as we possibly can have, and it looks as though I'm going to have a hell of a lot more than you!

Ian: Do we have a deal, Harris?

Harris: Yes, Doctor. We have a deal.

Ian: And the little arrangement between you and Eve?

Harris: Well, I don't see why we both can't enjoy her. I mean, for me, it'll be a celebration of my renewed vitality. For you, a last hurrah.

Ian: You as much as look at her and I will let you die.

Harris: All right, yes. I'll send her straight home to her loving and adoring husband.

Ian: And she's to believe that we're both going free.

Harris: You can play this any way you like, Doctor, as long as we both know the truth -- you lost, I won.

Alison: There's nothing that you want to tell me about this, like, mysterious job of yours, is there? Nothing at all?

Jamal: No, baby, come on. We already talked about this, all right? I don't want to keep talking about this.

Alison: No, I know, but I just don't want anything to ruin our first Christmas together, you know?

Jamal: All right, look, everything's cool, all right? It's cool. Look, I'll be back before Santa shows up. All right?

Alison: Ok.

Jamal: Cool. I still feel bad about leaving you all alone on Christmas Eve, though.

Alison: Yeah, you know, you should.

[Jamal laughs]

Alison: But I will let you make it up to me.

Jamal: Wait a minute, wait a minute. You're letting me off way too easy here.

Alison: No --

Jamal: What's up with that?

Alison: No, I'm not.

Jamal: Yes, you are.

Alison: No, I just -- you know, I have plans for tonight.

Jamal: Yeah, what do you think you're doing?

Alison: I'm going to watch TV, you know. I -- I'm going to sit here with some eggnog and watch "It's a Wonderful Life."

Jamal: Oh, "It's a Wonderful Life."

Alison: And you know, "A Christmas Story" and --

Jamal: Hmm.

Alison: "A Christmas Carol" --

Jamal: Hey.

Alison: And "The Love of Christmas."

Jamal: I'm sorry I'm going to miss that, baby. I'll just --

Alison: Yeah, you're not.

Jamal: Well, I'll tell you what -- why don't I start making it up to you right now?

Alison: Wait, wait, wait, wait! You're -- you're going to be late for work, you know?

[Jamal sighs]

Alison: So, you should really get going.

Jamal: All right, yeah.

Alison: I don't want you to be late.

Jamal: Yeah, yeah, you're right. Look, we'll pick up on this later, ok?

Alison: Ok.

Jamal: I'll try not to be too late.

Alison: Ok.

Jamal: All right? Oh --

Jamal: I really like knowing you're going to be here when I come home.

Alison: Oh, thank you. Me, too.

Jamal: All right, got to go.

Alison: God, I'm going to be late. Oh, my God! Oh, my --

Alison: Ok.

Victor: Monk, Monk! What flawless timing.

Kevin: Victor, what are you doing here?

Victor: Well, son, it's Christmas Eve -- maybe not the best night of the year for you to walk into a dark house all alone.

Kevin: I'm not alone. Lucy, what in the world --

Lucy: Doc, listen, I am -- I'm so very sorry.

Kevin: Sorry for what?

Victor: What happened?

Lucy: Well, that's just the point -- nothing happened. It was supposed to happen. See, I had this great idea for the most perfect Christmas gift ever for you, and I tried so hard to make it happen and I -- I couldn't seem to manage, and now I realize that because I didn't make it happen, you're not going to realize --

[Knock on door]

Victor: I'll get it. I'll get that.

Lucy: Great.

Gabriela: Hey, Victor!

Victor: Hi.

Gabriela: We heard there was a party here!

Joe: Hope we're not too late.

Victor: Well, uh --

Gabriela: Hi, Kevin! Hi, Lucy!

Kevin and Lucy: Hi.

Joe: Hi.

Lucy: I -- I thought you guys said you had plans.

Gabriela: Well --

Kevin: Plans for what?

[Knock on door]

Victor: Why don't I get that, Lucy?

Lucy: Ok.

Lee: Oh, oh, it's cold!

Victor: Hi.

Lucy: Oh, my goodness!

Lee: Hello, everybody!

Kevin: Lucy, what is this?

Gabriela: Hi.

Gail: Hi!

Lucy: Wait, I thought you guys said you had plans.

Lee: Well --

Gail: Oh, well, I mean who wants to see "The Nutcracker?"

Lee: Yeah, well, I've been saying that all along.

Lucy: Oh, thank you! Thank you, thank you!

Mary: Knock knock!

Victor: Hello, sweetheart. Hello. Hello, Frank!

Mary: Hi, Kevin!

Lucy: Oh, hi! Oh, I can't believe you're here! Thank you. Thank you so much! Sweet pea, what are you doing here? Come here, you! What are you doing here?

Serena: Hi, Mom.

Lucy: Where's your dad?

Serena: Oh, he's with Laura, and when Neil invited me to come to this party, I mean --

Lucy: Oh.

Kevin: Lucy? What party?

Lucy: Well, Doc, this is your party. This is all for you. Merry Christmas.

All: Merry Christmas.

Victor: Merry Christmas, Monk!

Eve: Ian. Thank God. What happened?

Ian: I told Harris about the cure and everything's a go.

Eve: Really? Does that mean we're going to get out of here?

Ian: That's what he says.

Eve: Oh, my God! I can't believe it! Oh!

Ian: And you're also released from your obligation.

Eve: How did you manage to do that?

Ian: Well, I told him if he had a relapse, I'm the only one that can help him. And I wouldn't if he touched you.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Kevin: What is going on here?

Lucy: I am going to tell you exactly how I feel about you, Dr. Kevin Collins.
