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.
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?
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 --
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.
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?
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: 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?
Joe: Scrambled or fried?
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.
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.
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: 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: 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?
Jamal: Cool. I still feel bad about leaving you all alone on Christmas Eve, though.
Alison: Yeah, you know, you should.
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 --
Alison: "A Christmas Carol" --
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?
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?
Jamal: I'll try not to be too late.
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 --
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.
Gabriela: Hey, Victor!
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.
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?
Lee: Oh, oh, it's cold!
Lucy: Oh, my goodness!
Lee: Hello, everybody!
Kevin: Lucy, what is this?
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 --
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.
