Lucy: Ok, so -- here I am again, asking for another major clue. All right, listen, I know things are working pretty well so far. I mean, I got Doc to stay in town. I sort of persuaded him to do that, so my stars are pretty lucky. So far so good. So let's move on to the next step. Ready? "Deception." Ok, ok, it was a little deception. You see, I had to lie, though. I had to change the results of that DNA test to show that Eve and Ian did die in that big car explosion or else Kevin would've been ruined. You know, I had to protect him from the truth -- the truth that his trampy, disgusting, so-called wife ran off with Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome. See, that's -- that's why, so let's just move on from that, ok? Let's just see what the next step should be. Yes! Yes. "Destiny." That's it. Everything in perfect harmony and perfect balance. Yes, that is a great big cosmic thumbs up from the universe if I ever saw one. Thank you.

Livvie: Hey, I brought you another Christmas present. It's to replace the one that got smashed.

Livvie: I didn't make it, like I did the last one, but the feeling behind it is pretty much the same.

Kevin: How did you know I needed this?

Livvie: Well, better late than never, right?

Kevin: Right. Better late than never. Thank you. Well, this goes with me everywhere.

Victor: Monk? Monk, do you have -- oh, Livvie, I'm sorry. Was I interrupting something?

Kevin and Livvie: No.

Livvie: Not at all. I'm just getting ready to put a pot of coffee on.

Kevin: Great idea. I think we should christen this mug.

Livvie: Hmm.

Kevin: Victor, what's the matter? You look like you've seen a ghost.

Victor: Mac was right. There isn't an easy way to tell you this. I know who killed Eve.

[Music plays] 

Ian: Eve? Eve, you sleeping?

Eve: Not anymore.

Ian: I didn't mean to wake you.

Eve: What's going on? Why is the lab so clean? Where are Harris' notes?

Ian: All right here in my noggin. I memorized the formula and then destroyed the paperwork.

Eve: What? Before I even got a chance to look at them? Why would you do that?

Ian: I --

Harris: I'm glad to find you two awake. We have a busy day ahead of us.

Ian: Give us a moment.

Ian: It isn't time yet.

Harris: I'm dying, Thornhart. It better damn well be time. Besides, I thought you wanted Eve out of here as soon as possible.

Ian: I do, so give us a moment.

Harris: Oh, so you can say your goodbyes? Ugh, make it short and sweet. I'm sick enough as it is.

Eve: Ian, what's going on out here? First you destroy the notes so that I'm completely out of the loop, and now you're out here whispering with him. Did you make some kind of a deal that I'm not aware of? You did, didn't you?

Ian: You're going home, today, alone.

Eve: No, I am not. We are in this together. Period.

Victor: We think a man named Jordan Harris is responsible for the bombing. At least that's what all my sources tell me. Actually, he's one of the suspects that Mac and I traced to Ian earlier.

Kevin: You've got to find him, Victor. I have to know who murdered Eve.

Victor: I had such mixed feelings about saying anything that would add to your grief, but I thought you ought to know.

Kevin: You did the right thing to tell me. Besides, I can handle this better now, especially after last night.

Victor: Last night was amazing. Nearly as amazing as the force behind it.

Kevin: Well, that's Lucy. Nothing's ever stopped her yet.

Victor: She really is amazingly devoted to you.

Livvie: Anyone for that coffee?

Victor: Uh -- no, thank you. I really have to be off. Monk, I'll talk to you later about that other thing.

Kevin: Good.

Livvie: Hey, Victor didn't have to stop talking when I came in about you and Lucy. I mean, I know you guys were like soul mates. Anyone can see that connection between you. Kind of practically lights up a room.

Kevin: Lucy lights up about a lot of things -- red roses, party hats, good shoes.

Livvie: Look, I know I didn't know Eve very well, but I do know how much you love her and probably will love her for the rest of your life, but there's just this bond between you and Lucy that can't be denied.

Kevin: You know, I know you just made the coffee, but I remembered I have to do something. You want to come along?

Livvie: Cool. Road trip with Dad. Yeah.

Eve: You cannot expect me to walk away from you, Ian. We are a package deal, ok? He stays, I stay.

Harris: Well, that's fine by me. You're much easier on the eyes than your partner here. Besides, I'd like to get to know you better.

Ian: Hey, hey -- there's only one deal on the table and I will not treat you until Eve is safe in Port Charles. I'm the only one who knows the formula to the cure, so you want me. Now, please, step outside and let us talk.

Harris: Wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, Thornhart?

Eve: You arrogant, self-centered jerk. What gives you the right to barter with your life like that?

Ian: The same thing that gave you the right to barter with your body.

Eve: I was trying to save your life, ok? You almost died in my arms after you drank that poison.

Ian: Harris knows he can get to me as long as you're here. You're his weapon.

Eve: And after I leave? Who's going to watch your back?

Ian: Once you're safe, I'll find a way to escape. Besides, once you're at home, you can call the police.

Eve: Escape? Escape how? How? After I leave, what's to stop Harris from killing you after he receives his treatments?

Ian: Lambert, you're going home. That's the end of it.

Eve: No. No, ok? There's got to be another way, all right? We'll brainstorm. We'll stay up all night -- think of something else --

Ian: We can't -- no, we don't have all night. We're running out of time.

Eve: I can't leave you.

Ian: Yes, you can. And you will. Go home. Do it for me.

Karen: Must be a full moon. What, this is the seventh run today?

Frank: Yeah, holidays always bring out the best in people.

Joe: All right, what do we got?

Emilio: Ted Harmon. A neighbor of his called it in. Near-syncopal episode. Skin's hot to the touch.

Frank: He's also got an old wound to the right lower extremity. Wouldn't let us start a line. Obviously, the guy's temperament's a little labile.

Joe: All right, we'll go easy on him. Just relax.

Frank: Apparently Ted's been here before. He's a Desert Storm vet, suffers from Gulf War Syndrome. Not too crazy about hospitals.

Emilio: Can you blame him?

Gabriela: Don't worry, Mr. Harmon, we'll take good care of you.

Ted: No -- where are you taking me?

Joe: We're just going to examine you, ok?

Ted: You're not my doctor! I want my doctor!

Joe: Take it easy. Calm down.

Ted: Get Dr. Collins!

Lucy: Whoopsie.

Alison: Here you are.

Lucy: Thank you, Alison. Hey, by the way, did you know that chamomile tea provides balance in your life and that harmony is a buzz word for the new year, hmm?

Alison: Hmm, well, the only buzz word that I need is from that incredibly boxed babe over there. Oh, um, Lucy, listen, I'm really sorry that I missed Kevin's party that you threw. You know, after all that stuff with Cedric, I really owe him a lot.

Lucy: Yeah, well, you know what? Kevin understood. And luckily, for all of us -- hmm -- people showed up when they needed to. That was what was important.

Alison: Oh, good.

Lucy: This has been fun. I got to go. I really, really, really just have to go.

Alison: Wait, but you --

Lucy: Ta!

Alison: Didn't finish your tea.

Kevin: Hello.

Lucy: Hi. Um, hi. Uh, what are you doing here? I mean, you know, here of all places.

Kevin: I'm staring down my darkest night, facing the place that almost destroyed me with the two people who helped me survive it.

Kevin: It's hard to make sense of it. Eve is dead and life goes on just like before.

Livvie: This is the first night you've been back here since the explosion, isn't it?

Kevin: Yeah. I mean, inside people are laughing, carrying on like nothing ever happened. Somehow you just don't think the world will be the same.

Lucy: Doc, you know, it isn't the same. It can't be the same. When you love somebody, it changes the world just a little bit. You loved Eve and you connected with her and you made her happy. Even if it was just for a very short time.

Livvie: And I know from experience what Lucy said is true. I mean, what you both did, reaching out to me, it really changed my life. You guys taught me so much -- about family, about loyalty, about just plain old sticking it out when the going gets tough.

Lucy: Well, that's me, one hardheaded, stick-to-it, stubborn gal, I guess.

Livvie: Oh --

Kevin: Oh, yeah.

Livvie: Lucy, you took me off the street and you didn't even know my name or who I was.

Lucy: Well, you needed help. That was enough for me, ok? Ok.

Livvie: You are an incredible woman. My dad is so lucky to have you in his life.

Lucy: Stop with the mushy stuff, ok?

Livvie: No, seriously --

Lucy: No, you'll make me cry.

Livvie: You guys both taught me so much about love and that it's just not a matter of give and take, and sometimes you just got to keep on giving until the other person catches up. Thank you. And you, too.

Kevin: Oh.

Livvie: Ok.

Lucy: Wow.

Kevin: Wow.

Lucy: Yeah. You have a pretty terrific kid there, Doc, you know?

Kevin: Well, no argument there. But she's right. I am lucky to have you in my life. Lucy, I -- I don't know what I'd do without you. I don't know what I would do without you.

Eve: Look, no matter how hell-bent you are on doing this, I am not letting you commit suicide.

Ian: Well, you think I'm just going to sit there and have him kill me? No. I was hoping to maybe get to see you again after this.

Eve: Good. I just don't want you giving up.

Ian: You know me better than that. I've never given up on anything in my life.

Eve: Ok, so, what's the game plan, then?

[Ian sighs]

Ian: The game plan -- there is nothing I can do while he has you in his grasp.

Eve: I don't like the way this is going.

Ian: Ok, I don't, either, but would you please just listen -- listen to what I have to say once in your lifetime. Lambert, please! I don't trust him to take you back to Port Charles safely. We need to come up with some kind of code so I know that you're ok.

Eve: Ok, now, that assumes that I'm going, which I'm not!

Ian: Some kind of word that I only would understand.

Eve: Ok. How about if I just call you stupid!

Ian: That's good, but everybody calls me that, so that's not going to work.

Eve: Ian, you can't make me leave you.

Ian: What about that drink you had at Jake's? Kamikaze? Perfect.

Eve: Uh-huh. You remember what happened to me at Jake's when I had that kamikaze? I fell right off the bar.

Ian: And do you remember that I caught you? I was there for you and I will be there for you now. But you have to follow the plan.

Eve: I hate this. I hate this so much.

Ian: Yeah, well, I don't like it, either. But you will call me as soon as you get back to Port Charles and you're safe.

Eve: What about you?

Ian: When I know that you're safe, I will end this little game with Harris once and for all. Come on, don't do this. This isn't a time for tears, huh? Some time to be sad. You're going home. And I will do the right thing. Believe it.

Eve: I know you will. I know you will.

Gabriela: According to his chart, he was supposed to be seeing Dr. Collins regularly, but he stopped coming six months ago.

Ted: You're not poking anything in me or giving me drugs, you hear me? I had enough of that stuff in Kuwait -- vaccines, chemical warfares. Nobody's touching my body anymore!

Gabriela: Mr. Harmon, you've got a fever, you're getting yourself all upset.

Joe: Let's give him two grams of ceftriaxone to start -- I.V. piggyback.

Gabriela: Ok.

Ted: You'll be sorry if you come any closer.

[Gabriela gasps]

Gabriela: Um -- he's not kidding.

Joe: Hey, we don't want to hurt you.

Ted: I've heard that before. This time I'm not buying your lies. You touch me again and I'll blow everyone in this lousy place sky high.

Alison: I just don't think that Livvie should be setting up her dad when Eve is barely in her grave. I mean, that's got to be, like, breaking some kind of major rule of dating etiquette.

Jamal: Look, the doc is hurt bad, ok? I mean, maybe Livvie just wanted him to get out a little, you know? Stop dwelling in the pain.

Alison: Well, Eve was a good person and she really helped us out when we were in trouble, and I'm not just going to pretend like she didn't exist.

Jamal: Yeah.

Alison: So --

Jamal: I mean, she's gone now, you know, so --

Alison: Wait, am I like the only person who thinks that this stinks? I mean, is that what you would do if, you know, something happened to me? Just take the next person on the list?

Jamal: Who you got named on that list, though?

Alison: I'm serious.

Jamal: Baby, all right, stop, stop. Ok, as far as I'm concerned, you are that list. Ok, there's no before or after you. All right? So don't go there. Don't.

Alison: Ok.

Jamal: Don't.

Alison: This is what love should feel like.

Lucy: We are both very, very lucky, Doc. I mean, we've always had, always, this great friendship.

Kevin: We're more than friends, Lucy, and you know that. Time and again, you've thrown me a lifeline when I needed it most. And how is it you always know the right thing to do or say?

Lucy: Uh, lucky to be in the right place at the right time. I guess it's just called destiny.

Kevin: I've been at rock bottom ever since Eve died. But it was you that got me back on my feet. How do you thank someone for saving your life?

Lucy: How about dinner?

Kevin: Well, I get off easy.

Lucy: Ok, I tell you what -- I will take care of the dinner and you have yourself officially reinstated at G.H., ok?

Kevin: Does that mean that you're going to -- cook?

Lucy: I said "dinner." I didn't say anything about cooking. You know I want to keep you as my friend.

Kevin: Whew!

[Lucy laughs]

Kevin: Thank you, Lucy Coe, for being you.

Lucy: Welcome home, Doc.

[Pager beeps]

[Kevin sighs]

Kevin: It's the hospital. I have to go. We'll talk later, ok?

Lucy: Ok.

Kevin: All right.

Ted: Keep your hands where I can see them.

Joe: Look, we don't want any trouble.

Gabriela: Just calm down. There are a lot of innocent people here.

Ted: And innocent people always suffer. I tried to protect my country. But my country didn't protect me. I told you to leave me alone.

Frank: Hey, Ted -- what's up?

Ted: What's up is that there's going to be no more tests. No more needles, ever again. I'm making it stop.

Joe: We're all backing off, Ted. You have my word.

Frank: You don't want to do this.

Colleen: Oh, my God!

Ted: That's it! It's all over!

Kevin: Soldier! You're out of line! Now stand down! That's an order!

Ian: Ugh!

Eve: Well, you don't expect me to go anywhere with a dirty face, do you?

Ian: Why does it take women so long to get ready? Why? Must be genetic.

Eve: You know what? I don't understand how I could've shared such close quarters with a big male chauvinist pig!

Ian: Eve, it's time to go home.

Eve: I don't think I can do it. I don't think I can walk out that door knowing I may never see you again. I don't think I can.

Ian: Hey -- hey -- don't give him the satisfaction of watching you crumble. You walk out of here with that same arrogant Lambert attitude that drove me nuts in Port Charles, all right?

Eve: I guess I gave you kind of a hard time back then, didn't I?

Ian: Yes, you did. But I wouldn't change a thing. Not for the world. You ready?

Eve: No.

[Ian and Eve sigh]

Ian: Ok.

[Ian sighs]

Ian: Hey, remember, you keep your head up high.

Harris: So, Eve, will I still have the pleasure of your company?

Eve: I'm sorry, but I have to go. And the only thing that makes me happy right now is knowing that you will soon be in a great amount of pain.

Eve: I'll see you back in Port Charles, Thornhart.

Ian: So long, Lambert.

Kevin: All right, Ted. Now, why don't we deal with this ourselves and let these people get back to work?

Ted: I don't think so. It's all coming apart. I've got no choice but to --

Kevin: You have a choice. You always have a choice. I told you that, remember?

Ted: Not when they're out to get me.

Kevin: No, no -- no one here is out to get you. Ted, you trusted me once. Trust me now. I'll watch your back, I promise.

Lucy: Hey, Doc, there you are. Listen, there is something else I wanted -- ooh!

Ted: This is how you watch my back, Collins? Huh? You're just like the rest of them.

Kevin: Lucy, don't move.

Ted: You sent her in, didn't you? Well, I'll show you. I'll show you all! I'm going to let this rip. I'm going to take you all down with me.
 

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Ian: There's no cure. You're going to die.

Harris: Then you will, too.

Kevin: Put that grenade down and you let her go! I'm not letting you kill anyone!
