Port Charles Transcript
Proofread by Beth
Kevin: "There are as many theories on obsessive fantasies as there are fantasies." Oh, that's a big help.
Frank's Voice: She has these beautiful, full lips, high cheekbones, and the most incredible smile.
Kevin: Frank's mystery woman. Hello, Karen. Except you don't exist. What if Lucy's right? What if she's right?
[Knock on door]
Kevin: Come in.
Colleen: Oh. Sorry to bother you, Dr. Collins. I didn't expect you in this early.
Kevin: Actually, I've been here all night.
Colleen: Is everything all right?
Kevin: Yeah, yeah, just a project I'm working on. What can I do for you?
Colleen: Oh, your 9:00, Mrs. Hansen, called to cancel.
Kevin: Oh. Well, good. That'll give me more time.
Colleen: For your project?
Kevin: That's right.
Kevin: Do me a favor, will you? Reschedule my whole morning.
Colleen: This project of yours must be pretty important.
Kevin: More than you can imagine. Excuse me.
Eve: Oh, man.
Eve: All right.
Eve: Yeah, hello?
Chris: What, so I propose marriage, and you up and leave?
Chris: Yes, it's Chris. How many other marriage proposals are you fielding?
Eve: Well, yours is at the top of my list.
Chris: I see. So you're ditching all of us, then?
Eve: Well, don't take it personally.
Chris: Eve, how else should I take it?
Eve: Look, Chris, I just -- I have a lot on my mind, and I just need to get away and be alone.
Chris: I see. So you're going to think about my offer, then?
Eve: Well, I'm definitely going to think about your offer and everything else.
Chris: All right. Well, that's great. You know, it's just I was worried about you, you know, when I got your message saying that you were leaving.
Eve: Yeah, I know. It's just that a lot of things hit me all at once, and, you know, that's why I need to get away and try and get a handle on things.
Chris: I understand. I just want you to remember that I really do want to be there for you and the baby.
Eve: Ian's baby.
Chris: Yeah, I know. But you can't be with Ian.
Eve: Thanks for reminding me.
Chris: I'm not trying to give you a hard time here.
Eve: Look, I know, I know. I know you're not. I'm just -- I'm just a little touchy these days, that's all.
Chris: You have good reason.
Eve: Right, which is exactly why I need to get away. Ok? Just for a little while -- time alone to think.
Chris: Well, remember, I'm just offering a safety net. You know, no pressure.
Eve: Chris, I appreciate that.
Chris: Where can I reach you?
Eve: You can't. See, that's the point. I will get in touch with you.
Chris: Eve, are you sure about all this? There are three flights a day leaving for Vegas. We could be married by dinner.
Eve: No, I am positive, ok? I'm absolutely positive. I will call you. Don't worry about me, please. All right? Now, I'll talk to you soon, ok? Bye.
Chris: Yeah, bye.
[Eve starts engine]
Frank: You look like hell.
Ian: I'm in good company, then.
Frank: Yeah. Did you get any sleep last night?
Ian: Uh-uh. Not much. Arianna's getting worse. If we don't find a donor soon --
Frank: Look, I told you --
Ian: I know, I know -- Karen.
Frank: She exists. Or she will, as soon as I go back to 1973, disable that computer so Cookie -- Rhonda Wexler -- and I never connect. Then she can go to that dance and meet Scott Baldwin.
Ian: And Karen will be born.
Frank: All I need are those herbs that you and the chief were talking about to take me back.
Ian: Well, they're on a flight from the island this morning.
Frank: Man, this -- this all sounds so crazy.
Ian: Yeah. What'd you tell your family?
Frank: Fishing trip to Alaska. I think they bought it that I'm burned out and I need to get away. They'd lock me up if they knew what I was really doing.
Ian: They'd lock all of us up. But as long as they believe you. All right. I got to go find that plane, get the package, and --
Frank: Hey, Ian?
Frank: Thank you.
Ian: Well, thank you -- for Arianna, for Eve, for me. Let's just hope it works.
Frank: It will work. I will bring you home, Karen. I promise.
Frank: Thanks again for the time off. It's kind of an emergency, but I'll be back on the job as soon as I can. I will. Thanks.
Kevin: Glad I caught you.
Frank: I was just headed out.
Kevin: Do you have a minute?
Frank: I have a plane to catch.
Kevin: Right, to Alaska.
Frank: Yeah, that's where I'm going.
Kevin: Well, this won't take very long -- just a second.
Frank: So, what's up?
Kevin: Look, Frank, I've been thinking about what you've been saying about this Karen and talking to Rhonda Wexler in 1973 --
Frank: Look, I told all of you last night -- I'm fried, ok? Too much work, not enough sleep. I need a breather.
Kevin: You're just going to take off like that? No luggage?
Frank: It's in the car.
Kevin: You have your fishing gear?
Frank: That, too.
Kevin: Just can't get away fast enough, huh?
Frank: I really do need to cool out.
Kevin: Well, fishing should do that.
Frank: That's the plan. So, thanks for stopping by.
Kevin: You must be pretty close to this person.
Kevin: Your friend in Alaska. Who'd you think I was talking about?
Frank: Yeah, we're pretty tight.
Kevin: Must be to go all that way. Who was it again?
Frank: Nobody you'd know.
Kevin: Yeah. Sorry, I can't help wondering.
Frank: Just wondering if I'm still wigged out is more like it.
Kevin: No. That's not it at all.
Frank: Then what's with all the questions?
Kevin: To be honest, I was hoping I could come along. I mean, I could use some time off myself, and I tie a mean fly.
Frank: I don't think so.
Kevin: Well, come on, there's always room for one more on a fishing trip, right?
Frank: Not this trip.
Kevin: Why not? Because there isn't one? We both know you're not going on any fishing trip.
Eve: I can't believe this. Why now? Why?
Eve: No. No, I'm not taking any chances this time. I'm going to take perfect care of you.
Eve: Hi. This is Dr. Eve Lambert. I'm calling again. I called a little while ago. I'm stuck here. I really need somebody to come out. Normally I wouldn't mind that much. I can change a tire myself. I'm not one of those wimpy kind of chicks, but I'm -- I'm on my way to a medical conference, and I can't really get messed up right now. Thank you. I appreciate it.
[Turns radio on]
[knock on window]
Eve: Oh, that was fast. Ian.
Eve: Well, you're not the auto club.
Ian: I can be if you want me to.
Eve: What are you doing all the way out here?
Ian: I was on my way to the airport.
Ian: Picking up a package. Lucky I came by when I did.
Eve: Yeah. Well, you know, you're always there to help a lady in distress.
Ian: Yeah. Why don't you give me a hand? I'm surprised you haven't changed all four by now.
Eve: Yeah. Yeah, well, you know, I figured I'd just -- you know, why am I paying the auto club for anyway?
Ian: I don't know. Now -- what, you're just going to stand there and watch me work?
Chris: Will you file those for me?
Gabriela: He even asks this time.
Gabriela: When I get a chance.
Chris: And I put up with this attitude because?
Gabriela: You're crazy about me.
Chris: Had your chance.
Gabriela: Don't tell me you've moved on.
Chris: I can hear your heart breaking.
Gabriela: Anyone I know?
Chris: Weren't you just too busy to file my charts for me?
Gabriela: Have you seen Eve?
Chris: No. Why?
Gabriela: Some of her patients were asking about her.
Chris: Well, I gave her some time off, you know. I'll cover for her.
Gabriela: I didn't know she was on vacation.
Chris: Yeah, well, you know, everyone needs a little time away now and then. You know, recharge the batteries, come back all fresh and, you know, start over. A whole new life, maybe.
Man: Excuse me. I'm looking for Dr. Chris Ramsey.
Gabriela: Right here.
Chris: I'm Dr. Ramsey. Oh, you must be Mr. Hester.
Man: Oh, that's right.
Chris: Yeah, I've been expecting you. Why don't we talk in my office?
Mr. Hester: I think I have exactly what you're looking for.
Frank: You think I'd just make something like that up? A fishing trip to Alaska? I mean, come on. Why would I say that if it wasn't true? Ok. The fishing part isn't real. Or Alaska.
Kevin: But you are going somewhere.
Frank: Yeah -- look, I didn't want to make a big deal out of it. It's just that I've been seeing this girl.
Frank: And I thought I'd take a few days off to go see her.
Kevin: Oh, she -- she doesn't live here in town?
Frank: Used to.
Kevin: And you don't want anyone to know because why?
Frank: You know my mom. A couple dates with someone and she's already naming the grandchildren.
Kevin: Oh, yeah. Well, I see your point. Especially when you're just getting started out with someone.
Frank: Yeah. I just don't want to blow it, you know? She's the most amazing woman I've ever met. I mean, we connect on this level I didn't even know existed.
Kevin: That sounds serious.
Frank: Could be. That's what I'm hoping for.
Kevin: Are you worried that it might not work out?
Frank: It's just that I screwed up, and I've got to find her, straighten things out or I'll lose her for good, and I can't let that happen.
Kevin: Is that her? Is that the woman you're going to look for?
Ian: Ok. Lug nut.
Eve: Lug nut.
Eve: That joke is so old and tired, even for a 19th-century kind of guy like yourself.
Ian: You're never going to let me live that down, are you?
Eve: Not for the rest of our lives. How's Arianna?
Ian: No change.
Eve: That package that you're going to the airport for --
Ian: No. No, it's not a donor. It's -- but maybe soon.
Eve: Really? Do you have a lead?
Ian: Yeah. It's a long shot.
Eve: Well -- a long shot? What do you mean by long shot? Like a 20-1 kind of long shot?
Ian: It's a miracle long shot.
Eve: Oh, gosh! Are you ok?
Eve: Let me look at that.
Ian: That's all right.
Eve: No -- hold on. Oh, man.
Ian: Ok, finished.
Eve: All right. Let me look at that.
Ian: I told you I'm fine.
Eve: You know what? You always were the worst patient. Hold on a second.
Ian: It's not going to sting me, is it? Is it?
Eve: I hope it does.
Eve: Ok. We're done, we're done. I don't think it'll require major surgery. It'll be ok.
Eve: I have to go. I have to go.
Ian: Where you going?
Eve: For a drive.
Ian: With luggage?
Eve: Come with me.
Mr. Hester: It's quite exquisite.
Chris: It's beautiful, but it's not big enough or special enough for this particular lady.
Mr. Hester: Oh. Well, she must be an exceptional woman.
Chris: And more. That's why it has to really suit her, you know? Something more unique.
Mr. Hester: I have just the thing. There isn't another one like it.
Chris: It's perfect.
Mr. Hester: We can size it later if you're planning to surprise your bride.
Chris: That's going to be difficult to do. She knows me too well. We've been friends for quite some time.
Mr. Hester: You know, in my experience, those are the best kind of marriages -- when you start out as friends.
Chris: Yeah, well, it's taken us long enough, but I think we're ready for the next step.
Eve: Let's just do it. Let's just get in the car and drive off.
Ian: And go where?
Eve: It doesn't matter -- anywhere as long as we're together, just us and our --
Ian: Our what?
Eve: Will you come with me?
Ian: I would love nothing more.
Eve: Ok, then let's just do it, ok? Let's not even think. Let's just love each other.
Ian: I can't. Not now. I'm sorry.
Ian: I have to do this thing.
Eve: For Arianna.
Ian: For all of us.
Eve: Well, then good luck to us all.
[Eve starts engine]
Frank: How did you do this again?
Kevin: Well, your description was pretty convincing -- a lot more than that story last night, or even now -- this supposed trip you're taking.
Frank: I don't know what you're talking about.
Kevin: I think you do, Frank.
Frank: Look, I know you're convinced I'm losing it.
Kevin: No, actually, I'm not. You surprised? Believe me, so am I.
Frank: Are you saying you actually believe me?
Kevin: Do I believe that you actually communicated with Rhonda Wexler in 1973 through a computer and that you erased her daughter's entire existence? I shouldn't believe it, and every rational part of me tells me that that's impossible. But there's another part of me. There's -- I don't know, call it instinct, call it whatever you want. But something tells me that there's just things in this universe that don't make sense.
Frank: So you won't try and stop me?
Kevin: I guess it's a matter of trust, isn't it? And I don't believe that you'd be doing whatever it is you're going to do unless you were totally convinced that it was the only way.
Frank: You won't say anything to my family?
Kevin: No, but I want something in return.
Kevin: If you need help, if you need to talk to someone -- and I don't care how irrational it might seem -- you come to me.
Frank: Thank you, Kevin.
Kevin: Good luck, Frank. I hope you find what you're looking for.
Frank: So do I.
>> On the next "Port Charles" --
Lucy: That flight that Frank was supposed to be on to Alaska? He wasn't.
Ian: Has something gone wrong?
Chief: I have no way of knowing.
