Jamal: What -- what? What's wrong?

Alison: It's freezing in here.

Jamal: I see. Hogging all the covers.

Alison: I'm sorry, I'm just cold.

Jamal: Oh. Come here, come here, come here, come here. Come here, come here. How's that? Hmm?

Alison: It's not working.

Jamal: Hmm. If that's the case, then there's only one thing left to do.

Alison: Fire up the space heater?

Jamal: No, I was thinking maybe we could make our own heat, baby.

Alison: Oh, Jamal, if you think for one second that I am going to take off these flannel jammies and my two pairs of long johns, you are crazy, ok?

Jamal: All right, all right, all right. Move.

Jamal: Oh. Grumpy -- oh.

[Alison shivers]

Alison: Hurry, hurry, before I officially become an icicle.

Jamal: All right, all right. It's already on. It's on. It's on, it's on, it's on.

Alison: Ah, thank you, thank you, thank you. I knew there was a reason I was so crazy about you.

Jamal: Because of my space heater, right? Oh, that's great.

Alison: Among other things.

Jamal: I just thought you said you were too cold to, you know.

Alison: I'm starting to thaw.

Jamal: Whoa --

Alison: Oh.

Jamal: Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Alison: Ok.

Jamal: Oh.

Alison: I know this looks really bad, but maybe, just maybe, we could use this to our advantage.

Eve: Kevin?

Kevin: Yes? Yes, it's me, I'm right here.

Eve: Ian --

Ian: Oh, I'm here, too.

Kevin: Eve, I can't believe you came back to me.

Eve: Kevin --

Kevin: What is it? Eve, what are you trying to say?

Eve: Where am I?

Kevin: You're at G.H. You were in an accident.

Eve: Oh.

Ian: Are you in pain?

[Eve sighs]

Eve: My head hurts.

Ian: Your vitals are ok. Let me get Karen.

Eve: Ooh.

Kevin: It's ok. You're home now. You're safe. Oh, God, I can't tell you what it feels like to see you again. I thought I'd lost you forever.

[Lucy sighs]

Karen: I just got paged. Well, look who finally decided to wake up. Hello.

Eve: Hi, Karen.

Kevin: She's still a little disoriented.

Ian: She said her head hurts.

Karen: Well, it's probably the residual effects from the head trauma, but let me check her out just to be sure.

Kevin: Ian and I will wait outside for a minute. I'll be right back.

Eve: Ok.

Ian: So will I.

Karen: Ok, this won't take long, just a minute or two.

Kevin: Look, Ian, I appreciate your concern for Eve, I really do. But she's awake now and her CAT scan was negative.

Ian: I'm not going anywhere until I know she's all right.

Kevin: Even if it's not what's best for her?

Ian: What's that supposed to mean?

Kevin: I'll tell you what it means. Seeing you, being reminded of what you two just went through is the last thing that she needs.

Karen: Well, everything checks out.

Kevin: Do you mind if I go back in?

Karen: Sure. She's just a little knocked out from the drugs.

Kevin: That's ok. I just want to be with her.

Karen: Yeah, of course.

Kevin: Thanks.

Karen: I'll be back soon.

Ian: Yeah.

Kevin: If you don't mind, I'd like a moment alone with my wife.

Alison: Oh -- brr.

Jamal: Ooh. Everything -- everything for the whole apartment is blown. Frank's going to have to call an electrician in the morning.

Alison: Oh, now, wait a second. If you think for one minute that I can go all night without electricity, you are crazy.

Jamal: What do you need so bad?

Alison: Jamal, hello? I need my hair dryer and my sonic toothbrush and my cappuccino maker. I need my coffee.

Jamal: Oh, come on, Ali, Ali, Ali, you can go one day without all those things.

Alison: I'm so sorry, but I am not a camper, ok? There's only one answer. We need to go get a hotel.

Jamal: A hotel? What? No, no, that's your big proposition? No.

Alison: Wait, you didn't let me finish. I was thinking that it would be, you know, really romantic.

Jamal: Ali, come on, what can we do in a hotel that we can't do right here, hmm?

Alison: Well, first of all, I wouldn't be too cold to take off all my 12 layers of clothes. And, second, I find a change in scenery very inspiring.

Jamal: Hmm --

Alison: Hmm?

Jamal: No -- no, no, you know, forget it. No -- no, we can't afford it, Ali. No, we can't.

Alison: No, really, we can, ok? See, because I have collected all my tips and stuff and it's not like we have to stay at the Ritz. Ok, we can stay somewhere cheap. Would that make you happy?

Jamal: Well, what would make me happy is if we stay right here, really.

Alison: Even if that means that you would be missing out on the most sexy, romantic, electric night with the woman you love?

Jamal: Hmm -- are we talking about the same one that doesn't stop until she gets what she wants?

Alison: Exactly.

Jamal: All right. All right, go pack. Go, go, go.

Alison: Yes, yes, yes-yes-yes! Oh, this will be great, ok? Listen to me, I am going to give you a night that you will never, ever forget.

Jamal: Ah!

Victor: No, no. No, no. Let's dig as deep as we can while we've still got her in custody. I'll be in touch.

Lucy: Hey.

Victor: Lucy, hi.

Lucy: Oh, my clothes. Thank you. I really appreciate that. What was that phone call all about?

Victor: They've arrested the woman who ran over Eve. We're checking now to see if she might in some way be connected to Jordan Harris or to the operation to kidnap Eve and Ian.

Lucy: They think that maybe the woman ran over Eve on purpose?

Victor: It's certainly possible.

Lucy: Oh. Well, I -- I have some good news. Eve's awake.

Victor: Oh, she is? That's great.

Lucy: Yeah, it's great.

Victor: Oh. I'm sorry. All of this puts you in a very awkward position, doesn't it?

Lucy: Well, it puts me in a very bad movie where I am the woman who has professed my love to my true soul mate, only to have his dead wife come back. So now this woman feels like she's out in the cold with her heart ripped out.

Victor: I'm so sorry.

Lucy: Hey, well, you know, it's just, I watch Kevin with Eve and he seems so devoted, and then I try to keep reminding myself that he's just playing a part, you know, of the loyal husband because that's what he has to do under these circumstances. That's what he feels like he has to do, right?

Victor: Lucy, Monk isn't pretending. He does love Eve, and if there's one thing Monk is it's loyal.

Lucy: Can you say the same thing about Eve?

Victor: What do you mean?

Lucy: Well, do you honestly believe that nothing happened between Eve and Ian while they were locked up together all alone like that?

Victor: Oh, I see where this is going. In your movie, Ian and Eve fall in love, thereby opening the door for Kevin and Lucy. Is that about it?

Lucy: Ok, if I was writing this movie, that would be it. That would be my happy ending. I think it'd be happy for everybody.

Victor: Lucy, things don't work out like that, not in real life.

Lucy: Maybe not. But you know what they say, the movie's not over till it's over, right?

Kevin: I'll make it up to you, Eve. I swear. Just get better. Please, just get better.

Jamal: Girl, we are staying one night in a motel. We're not going on a cruise.

Alison: I know. If we were going on a cruise, I would have brought the big bag.

Jamal: Look, before we go through all this, just let me see how much you saved there from these tips of yours.

Alison: You don't think I can save.

Jamal: No, no, no. It's just, I want to make sure we have enough for the room.

Alison: The room and room service.

Jamal: Oh, boy.

Man: Hey, which way's the bar?

Jamal: Oh, bar's closed, homey.

Man: Oh. Well, hey, you got any --

Jamal: No. No, sorry, man. You might as well just keep stepping.

Man: You're no fun.

Jamal: Hey. Come on, girl, give me my money.

Alison: Ok, ok. It's all there. Go ahead and count it. Not bad, huh?

Jamal: Ooh.

Man: Hey, hey.

Jamal: That's not bad.

Man: How much for the pretty lady?

Jamal: Well, hold on. What'd you say, man?

Alison: Excuse me?

Man: Hold it, honey. I'm talking to your mac daddy here.

Jamal: Wait, hold on, hold on. Let me explain something to you, man.

Alison: Oh, my God!

Jamal: She is not no hooker, all right?

Man: So what are you going to tell me next, huh? Pretty blonde's your girlfriend?

Jamal: Wait, who you think you're talking to like that, huh? You don't talk that. Apologize!

Man: I'm sorry.

Jamal: Apologize!

Man: I'm sorry, man. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Jamal: Get the hell out of here, man.

Man: All right, I'm going. But I won't forget.

Jamal: Well, I'm right here.

Alison: What was with that guy?

Jamal: Nothing. He ain't the only one.

Alison: What does that mean?

Jamal: Welcome to the real world.

Victor: They said she was awake.

Kevin: She was, but the painkillers knocked her out.

Victor: This is incredible. Eve, alive.

Kevin: I know. I can't believe it myself. But I'm worried about her, Victor.

Victor: Why? I spoke to Karen. She said everything's going fine.

Kevin: It's not her physical health I'm talking about. What she went through. The fear. The terror. Every minute, not knowing if she'd ever make it out.

Victor: But that's -- that's over now.

Kevin: That's what she thought. She thought it was all over. So she comes home to the one person she thought could make her safe, but I wasn't there, Victor. I wasn't there! And now I don't know if it'll ever be over.

Victor: Of course it will because you're here now.

Kevin: No, you don't understand. This accident never should have happened. I never should have let her leave the Recovery Room the night of the explosion. I should have stopped her from getting into Ian's car. And I should have known somehow that she wasn't really dead.

Victor: Oh, Monk, how could you? The DNA report confirmed --

Kevin: I should have figured it out somehow. And at the very least, I should have answered the door instead of leaving her out on the front porch knocking.

Victor: Monk, please. Please, don't do this to yourself.

Kevin: Why not? I'm the reason that she's lying there. It's my fault. It's my fault.

Ian: Hey. Large coffee to go, please. Thank you.

Lucy: Make it for here and I'll buy.

Ian: Sweet Lucy, hi.

Lucy: Hi. Hi.

Ian: Oh, it's good to see you.

Lucy: I'm so glad you're alive and you're back. I mean, I think. I mean, I'm glad you're alive, but are you glad you're back?

Ian: Yeah, well, I wish it were under different circumstances.

Lucy: Yeah. Me, too. It must have been really awful being held hostage. I mean, you and Eve being held hostage like that.

Ian: I did what I had to, to get her back to her husband.

Lucy: Yeah. I'm sure you did, but I'm sure she was very glad that you care so much about her, to have someone like that with her, you know. I mean, really, you two must have had a lot of time to get close while you were --

Ian: What are you asking me?

Lucy: Oh. I don't know, but I think you do.

Ian: Leave it.

Lucy: I can't. Ian, look, I really do need to know, please.

Ian: What you need and what I need is going to have to wait, ok? Eve is up there in the ICU, and until she feels better, maybe we can put this little discussion on what we did during our Christmas vacation on hold. Ok?

Lucy: Ok.

Ian: Oh. Here.

Waitress: Thank you.

Ian: Thank you. Bye.

[Lucy sighs]

Lucy: I so hope you did what I did on your Christmas vacation.

Alison: I don't see why you had to let that guy ruin our plans. We could be in a nice, cozy hotel right now.

Jamal: I just don't feel like partying right now, ok?

Alison: Well, I still can't believe he thought that I was a hooker. Why would he think that?

Jamal: Because you were with me.

Alison: And?

Jamal: And he thought that people like me couldn't get with people like you.

Alison: That's the lamest thing I ever heard.

Jamal: Well, you know, you better get used to it because that's the way it is.

Alison: No, I'm not going to get used to it because that is so 1960s. Please.

Jamal: Yeah, well --

[glass breaks in alley]

Jamal: What the --

[banging]

Jamal: What are you doing to my bike, man? What's wrong with you?

Man: I told you I wouldn't forget, pimp man.

Alison: Jamal, don't! Don't! Forget about it!

Jamal: Forget -- what do you mean, "forget about it"? What do you mean, "forget about it"?

Alison: Look, the bike can be fixed. I cannot get another you.

Jamal: Well, it ain't -- it ain't just the bike. It's everything.

Alison: No. No, it doesn't matter. None of it matters, Jamal.

Jamal: Don't you get it? Don't you -- it matters.

Ian: Hey. How is she?

Karen: Still sleeping.

Ian: Kevin not with her?

Karen: Oh, he went down for some coffee.

Ian: Oh. Do you mind if I go in?

Karen: No. In fact, I just got paged to surgery.

Ian: Good. I'll keep an eye on her, don't worry.

Karen: Ok.

Ian: Hey. Lambert. I know you have a lot on your mind right now, but I need you to focus on getting better, ok? And don't worry about me and Kevin and all that. That can wait. What I want right now is for you to get back to your feisty, stubborn self as soon as possible. Do you know what? Even when you do, you won't have to worry at all because I'll be there for you. Be right here. Right by your side. For always.

Kevin: Lucy?

Lucy: Doc, hi. Sit.

Kevin: Victor told me I'd find you here.

Lucy: Good. How's Eve?

Kevin: Oh, she's sleeping now. How are you?

Lucy: I'm good. I'm fine. Fine.

Kevin: No, you're not. Lucy, I'm sorry I haven't been there for you.

Lucy: That's ok. I understand. You have an obligation to Eve, and I'm -- I've just -- I've got to give you some space, you know, until you can get everything straightened out.

Kevin: Straightened out.

Lucy: Well, I mean, until you can tell her about us.

Kevin: Lucy, I can't tell her about us.

Lucy: No -- no, of course you can't. I mean, yet.

Kevin: I don't think you understand.

Lucy: What? Understand what?

Kevin: Lucy, last night was -- was just incredible. It was like it was meant to be, like where I was supposed to be. But that was before I knew Eve was alive. Lucy, she almost died trying to get back to me. And she's still in so much pain, physical, emotional. But beyond all of that, she's my wife.

Lucy: What -- what are you -- what are you trying to say to me?

Kevin: I'm saying that as wonderful as last night was, it can never be.
 

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Scott: You must be my new client.

Ian: I love you. I always have.

Victor: They're finally beginning to close in on the person who altered the DNA results.
