[heavy breathing]

Karen: Frank?

Frank: Yeah?

Karen: Are you sure this is the right thing?

Frank: It's a little late for second thoughts.

Karen: You're right. We can't stop now.

Frank: Then let's not. Besides, we're almost there.

Karen: Ugh.

Frank: Whew.

Ian: You ok?

Arianna: I'm your wife. This is our home. It's just --

Ian: It's just what?

Arianna: It's ok. I'll get used to it. This can't be how you imagined bringing your bride home.

Ian: Well, I'm sure that it's not how you imagined it, either.

Arianna: I was wondering if --

Ian: Wondering if what?

Arianna: If this isn't a mistake.

Kevin: You ok?

Eve: Yeah, I'm fine. You?

Kevin: Fine. Sorry, Eve. I don't know what to say. I didn't expect to find you here.

Eve: Well, that's a good place to start -- the fact that you're surprised to see your wife at home.

Frank: There. This is perfect.

Karen: You think so?

Frank: Yeah. Look, there's even an outlet. Hey, what do you say we fire this puppy up, huh?

Karen: Oh, unplug it, quickly, before it blows! Quick! Oh!

Frank: I wonder what was up with that.

Karen: You know, maybe it just doesn't work.

Frank: Well, we can get it fixed.

Karen: Maybe we could put it somewhere else till then.

Frank: You want me to move it again?

Karen: If it's not too much trouble.

Frank: No problem. Where do you want it?

Karen: How about the patio?

Frank: What? I didn't catch that.

Karen: How about over there by the window?

Frank: Ok, if that's where you want it.

Frank: Oh! Ugh.

Karen: Frank!

Frank: Oh.

Arianna: Was this a big mistake?

Ian: We had no choice.

Arianna: I needed you to marry me, but you didn't have to.

Ian: Unless I wanted to see you deported.

Arianna: You barely know me.

Ian: I know you well enough to know that once they got you home they would've murdered you, and I wasn't going to stand for it.

Arianna: Even if it means marrying a stranger?

Ian: Even if. Enough said, ok?

Arianna: No. Wait. There's just one more thing I have to say. No one has ever done so much for me, sacrificed so much.

Ian: There are worse things than marrying a beautiful woman.

Arianna: Unless you're in love with someone else.

Ian: Your brother is going to be out of the way for a while. But he won't be in jail forever, and once he's out he'll come looking for you.

Arianna: But you heard what he said. He'll leave me alone if he believes we're really married.

Ian: Well, so let's make him believe it, along with everybody else.

Arianna: Including Eve?

Ian: Let's not talk about her. We're going to make people believe we're newlyweds. All right, first things first -- to get you a wedding ring.

Arianna: Oh, it's not necessary.

Ian: No, it is necessary. If we're married, you need a ring.

Arianna: Of course.

Ian: And you'll have to change your name.

Arianna: Mrs. Ian Thornhart.

[Knock on door]

Ian: It's open.

Joe: Hey. Thought we heard voices down here.

Gabriela: Hey.

Ian: Hey.

Gabriela: Arianna. You're all right!

Arianna: Yes, I'm fine, thanks to Ian.

Gabriela: We were so worried about you when you disappeared from the hospital.

Arianna: I'm sorry I left you to deal with my brother.

Gabriela: Oh, no, I'm just glad you're ok.

Ian: Yes, we both are. In fact, we have an announcement to make.

Joe: Yeah?

Ian: Well, we -- we got very close and we got married.

Eve: It's never been this hard to talk to you.

Kevin: I know.

Eve: Even when we hardly knew each other.

Kevin: But we're not strangers now.

Eve: It just feels that way.

Kevin: But we're not. We care about each other, Eve. Despite everything that's happened, we still care about each other and we have to talk this out.

Eve: You're right.

Kevin: Ok. You left me to be with Ian.

Eve: I'm sorry if I hurt you. You know, I never meant to.

Kevin: Just tell me the truth, Eve.

Eve: I would have told you the truth had I known it myself.

Kevin: What do you mean?

Eve: I told you that there were parts of Ian and I being kidnapped that I didn't remember.

Kevin: Yes.

Eve: When we were saying our vows to each other the other day --

Kevin: Your memory came back.

Eve: Ian and I were held hostage for a long time, and we spent every minute of every day together. And we depended on each other for so much. I was so scared, and I wasn't thinking straight half the time.

Kevin: Eve, are you trying to tell me that you and Ian had an affair?

Eve: No. No. I couldn't. I was still married to you.

Kevin: But something did happen between you.

Eve: It was a difficult time. We didn't know whether we were going to live or die.

Kevin: Well, people can become close in a situation like that.

Eve: It was more than that. I fell in love with Ian. I'm so sorry. I never, ever meant to hurt you. I tried so hard to fight it, Kevin. You were everything to me. You were the perfect husband and --

Kevin: It wasn't just you, Eve.

Eve: But --

Kevin: You're not the only one who broke a wedding vow.

Eve: What are you saying?

Kevin: When you were gone, I was lost. I managed to find my way back. I found my way back to Lucy.

Karen: Will you please hold still?

Frank: I don't need you to look at it.

Karen: I am a doctor.

Frank: And I'm a paramedic, and I say it's fine. Hmm. Ok, maybe I could use some ice.

Karen: Will you please let me check it?

Karen: Do you feel anything?

Frank: Yeah.

Karen: Pain?

Frank: No.

Karen: How about that?

Frank: Ah -- ooh, ow. What are you doing?

Karen: Trying to figure out what's wrong with you -- your knee, anyway.

Frank: It's just an old football injury.

Karen: Or a new sprain. Better get you that ice.

Frank: Ah. That's what I get for buying you a present.

Karen: Such a humongous one, anyway.

Frank: Well, I could've gotten you the Chia Pet or that -- that disco ball.

Karen: You know, I really had a lot of fun at the auction.

Frank: Oh, yeah, I could tell you were having the time of your life.

Karen: It just caught me off guard seeing my mom, that's all.

Frank: Yeah. How you doing with that?

Karen: I love her. I do, but --

Frank: History. I know.

Karen: It was such a nightmare growing up with her drinking and --

Frank: Yeah, tell me about it. My dad was the reason Joe and I were always hanging out on the street.

Karen: You know, I bet you probably don't remember me tagging along with you guys. You know, you were the cool older brother, and I was that --

Frank: Joe's scrawny little friend.

Karen: Thanks.

Frank: Yeah. So you thought I was cool, huh?

Karen: You were ok.

Frank: "Ok?"

Karen: Ok, I thought you were kind of cute -- once, a long time ago.

Frank: Well, you know what? I thought you were pretty cute, too, for a scrawny little kid. Oh, ow! Ok!

Karen: Never insult a doctor when she's treating you.

Frank: Did you ever think you'd wind up being a doctor?

Karen: It was my dream. But you know, I almost blew it.

Frank: But you didn't. You went into rehab, you're in recovery. You're doing great.

Karen: Well, I thought I was. And then, surprise, Mom's back. I guess anything that rocks the boat scares me.

Frank: Does that include me?

Gabriela: Congratulations. We're just so surprised.

Joe: Yeah, it's -- it's unbelievable.

Gabriela: Yeah. When did this happen?

Ian: Last night.

Joe: Well, we should celebrate. How about you and I go upstairs and see if we can find something to toast with?

Ian: Sure. See you in a minute.

Arianna: Why are you looking at me like that?

Gabriela: Well, we both know your brother was trying to have you deported.

Arianna: Yes, and Ian rescued me.

Gabriela: By marrying you?

Arianna: No. We fell in love.

Gabriela: Arianna, you can trust me, ok? If you need somebody to talk to --

Arianna: Ian and I may have not married for the same reasons other couples do. But we care about each other. I know he doesn't feel exactly the same way about me, but I can make him happy. And I will.

Joe: Look, why don't you cut the bull here, Ian.

Ian: What are you talking about?

Joe: You know what I'm talking about. You married someone you just met.

Ian: Yeah. Happens all the time.

Joe: No, no, not to a guy who's still in love with someone else.

Ian: I don't want to talk about that.

[Joe sighs]

Joe: Eve. Her name is Eve, Ian. And, correct me if I'm wrong, you're still in love with her.

Ian: I know what her name is. And it's over.

Joe: Come on, Ian. I mean, you got to know by now you can trust me.

[Ian sighs]

Ian: Have you ever heard of an honor killing?

Joe: Yeah, I've read about it.

Ian: Well, that's what was going to happen to Arianna.

Joe: Why?

Ian: Because she was raped, and her family blames her for it. They want her dead. And I wasn't going to let that happen.

Joe: So you married her?

Ian: Yeah, before her brother was going to deport her.

Joe: Oh. Now what?

Ian: Now we're going to make everyone believe that we're happily married.

Joe: For how long?

Ian: I don't know.

Joe: You don't know? You're talking marriage here, Ian.

Ian: Yes, I know, Joseph. But it's in name only. No one's heart's on the line here.

Eve: You got back together with Lucy?

Kevin: I thought you were dead.

Eve: Now it all makes sense -- the things that she said. It's still going on, isn't it?

Kevin: No, but the feelings -- those old feelings are still there.

Eve: Maybe they never went away.

Kevin: Maybe. I don't know. But once you came back -- talk about guilt, hating myself.

Eve: Kevin, don't, ok? It's not your fault. You didn't know I was still alive.

Kevin: But you were. You were, and I --

Eve: Didn't know. It's ok. You didn't do anything wrong.

Kevin: You know what? Neither did you.

Eve: This is a big mess, isn't it?

Kevin: Why aren't you with Ian?

Eve: Because he's -- he's --

Kevin: He's what? What -- what happened?

Eve: He's -- he's married.

Kevin: He's married?

Eve: It just happened.

Kevin: I -- I don't follow. Who did he marry?

Eve: Nobody you know. Doesn't matter.

Kevin: It does to you.

Eve: Well, some things just weren't meant to be.

Kevin: You don't believe that.

Eve: Kevin, Ian is married now, and I'd like to ask you a really big favor. I don't want him to know -- him or anyone -- that I remembered what happened between us.

Kevin: Eve --

Eve: Please. Kevin, please.

Kevin: All right. If that's what you want.

Eve: It is.

Kevin: Let me ask you something now. If Ian weren't married, would you be with him right now?

Eve: I ruined everything, didn't I? I really messed up.

Frank: You didn't answer my question.

Karen: What?

Frank: If I am one of those people rocking the boat, tell me.

Karen: You're not.

Frank: Are you sure?

Karen: Positive. I'd better get you an ice pack. Oh.

Frank: Oh, here, let me help you.

Karen: No, I got it. It's ok.

Frank: No, no, no, no, no, no. No, no, let me help. Oh.

Karen: Oh, God. Thanks. Um -- you know, you better get that weight off your knee.

Frank: Yeah. You know, that's the second time that computer has reached out and grabbed you. Maybe it's trying to tell you something.

Karen: What?

Frank: That it wants me coming to your rescue.

Karen: Frank, I have to level with you on something.

Frank: I am rocking the boat, right?

Karen: No, no. It's the computer. It's -- it -- it's --

Frank: It's uglier than a box of frogs?

Karen: Well, actually, a box of frogs would be an improvement.

Frank: You know, I was wondering how long it would take you to come out and say that.

Karen: I'm sorry.

Frank: No, no, no, don't be sorry. Tell you what -- how about if I take it and store it at my place?

Karen: Good idea.

Frank: Well, you know, it could've taken you a little longer to think about it.

Karen: Well, let's get one thing straight. I can come and visit it any time I want.

Frank: I can live with that.

Karen: Ok.

Joe: Look, it's not just Arianna's life on the line here. Yours is, too. What you did is illegal.

Ian: No one has to know that this marriage isn't real.

Joe: Look, Ian, I know -- I know you don't want to talk about Eve, but --

Ian: Eve is very happy with someone else.

Joe: Wait a minute. You -- you don't know, do you?

Ian: I don't know what?

Joe: Kevin and Eve didn't renew their vows.

Ian: What?

Joe: Yeah, she walked out on the ceremony.

Ian: Why?

Joe: I don't know.

Ian: You don't -- what do you mean you don't know? Did she say something, not say something?

Gabriela: Hey.

Ian: Hey.

Gabriela: We thought you guys got lost up here.

Arianna: Is everything all right?

Ian: Yeah, things are great.

Gabriela: Well, I hate to be a wet blanket, but I'm due back at the hospital.

Joe: Yeah, me, too.

Arianna: It's ok. We can celebrate another time.

Gabriela: Yeah.

Joe: Whatever you say. I'll see you later.

Arianna: Are you sure nothing's wrong?

Ian: Yeah.

[Knock on door]

Ian: Hang on.

Man: Arianna Shapour?

Arianna: Who are you?

Woman: Immigration and Naturalization Services. We'd like to see your entry papers.

Ian: Wait, wait, wait. And I would like to see some identification, please.

Woman: If you have entered this country illegally, we --

Arianna: No, that's all changed.

Man: We'll have to take you into custody for deportation.

Ian: That's unnecessary. She's my wife.

Woman: Your wife?

Ian: Yeah, we got married.

Man: You're going to have to answer some questions about this so-called marriage.

Ian: I'm on an extended working visa, and she's entitled to stay with me in this country.

Woman: But you're still required to answer our questions.

Arianna: What do you want to know?

Man: Uh-uh. We're questioning you separately.

Eve: Last year when we stood here and said our marriage vows, I meant every word.

Kevin: I know you did. So did I.

Eve: Then what happened? How did we end up where we are now?

Kevin: I wish I knew.

Eve: I wish there were some way we could turn back the clock.

Kevin: Maybe there is.


>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Eve: Please don't hate me, Kevin.

Arianna: It must look like we share a bed, like a real husband and wife.

Jack: You already stuck your neck out to hide what we did from Livvie about almost sleeping together, and --

Livvie: What?
