Port Charles Transcript Friday 8/17/01

By John
Proofread by Beth

Karen: When Alan found out that we were doing research on vampires, I thought our careers were over.

Frank: I thought he was going to call the police.

Ian: That's what you call dodging the silver bullets.

Karen: Ha-ha, not funny.

Ian: No, it's vampire humor. You can laugh at that. Eve, you all right? Want a drink?

Eve: Ah.

Ian: You ok?

Eve: I'm ok. Our baby is safe. It's over.

Ian: That it is. That it is.

Lucy: How dare you sneak up on two strangers like that and scare me half to death.

Man: Well, I would hardly call two honored guests that I've invited into my home strangers. But I do apologize for startling you.

Kevin: Well, if you're serious about the apology, you can begin by explaining why the invitation, who the heck you are, and why all the mystery.

Man: Of course, Dr. Collins. And do forgive the cloak and dagger, but there was no sense offering safe haven if the entire village knows you're here.

Lucy: Safe haven?

Man: I am aware of the attempt that was made on your life, Ms. Coe.

Kevin: Well, then you can understand why we're less than open-hearted about the invitation. Come on, Lucy.

Man: Please, Dr. Collins. Please reconsider leaving quite so soon. But the chances are if you leave this house now, it's unlikely you'll ever arrive home.

Alison: I've been waiting for you to call. What's going on?

Jamal: Nothing to report yet.

Alison: Nothing at all?

Jamal: Nope. All's quiet upstairs in Jack and Livvie land.

Livvie: Just because it's quiet doesn't mean there isn't anything to report.

Alison: Livvie, hi. Where's Jack?

Livvie: He's gone.

Alison: He's -- he's gone? What do you mean he's gone?

Livvie: I mean he left. It's all over. Jack said goodbye.

Alison: Wait, I don't -- I don't get it.

Livvie: He's leaving. That's what he told me.

Alison: Well, I mean, are you sure that he said that --

Livvie: I'm not sure of anything anymore, ok? I'm just telling you what he told me. Oh, God, I got to get out of here. I need some air.

Jamal: Livvie, I don't think that's a good idea.

Livvie: You know, Jamal, I don't give a damn if it is or if it isn't. Jack's gone and Caleb's gone, and now what?

Alison: Livvie, you're safe.

Livvie: For something I have wanted my whole life -- being safe? -- this feels awfully empty.

Jamal: He's gone.

Alison: You don't exactly seem very surprised about this.

Jamal: No, no, not exactly.

Alison: Why? Where's Jack?

Jamal: Look, I don't know, but I don't have a very good feeling about this, Ali.

Alison: Why?

Jamal: Because he asked me to end it for him, ok?

Alison: What?

Jamal: No, I said no, but now I'm thinking he might have decided to take care of it himself.

Alison: Take care of what?

Jamal: I think Jack went somewhere to die.

Jack: Ok. Ok, Jack. It's going to be worth it. Just keep telling yourself that. It's going to be worth it in the end. You have to see it through. Ah. Ah. You have to see it through for Livvie. Ok? Oh. Livvie, I love you so much. But now -- now you're going to be safe. At least I'll die knowing -- I'll die knowing I can't hurt you.

Man: Well, that concludes the tour. As you can see, there's more than enough room to accommodate you if you decide to accept my invitation.

Kevin: Can we get back to the part about who's trying to kill us, please?

Man: No disrespect, doctor, but it is Ms. Coe who poses the threat.

Kevin: In what way?

Man: These people are deeply superstitious and they have managed somehow to hold on to many of the old ways. Now, normally, this is a quaint and picturesque practice. But unfortunately, because of Ms. Coe's presence, they seem to feel that she has put them in some sort of mortal danger, even, and they've chosen to react accordingly.

Lucy: By trying to kill me?

Man: Well, they're really just children. But in ignorant groups, even children can be quite troublesome. Over the years, I've taken it upon myself to keep an eye on them.

Lucy: I see. So you saved my life?

Man: Eternally at your service.

Kevin: Wait a minute, why would these people see Lucy as a threat?

Man: You know the answer to that, don't you, my dear?

Lucy: Because they know I'm related to Caleb. Somehow they sense that I'm part of that family.

Man: Your intuitive powers are quite impressive. That is indeed what the rabble fear and indeed what the rabble do best.

Kevin: Are the rabble as evasive about their names as you are?

Man: Oh, not at all, my good doctor, no, although even in this part of the world, we do believe that knowing even a person's name can open the door to a wielding of power both for and against the individual. We like to share names here as the first sign of trust between new friends.

Kevin: And your name is?

Man: James Richfield. I'm the Morley family retainer. Oh, there's another old custom. Yes, my people have looked after the Morley family concerns for, well, centuries.

Lucy: Well, that's great. Then you could tell me everything you know about the family, maybe the family secrets.

James: I'm on intimate terms with every skeletal detail, I'm afraid.

Lucy: Then you know what Caleb is.

James: Ah. As do you, I suppose.

Kevin: We are talking about the fact that Caleb is a vampire, aren't we?

James: As the family retainer, I prefer to talk about master Caleb's affliction with a certain delicacy.

Kevin: Well, of course. He sucks blood, he kills innocent people. He's also after my daughter.

James: Master Caleb was banished from this house many years ago, and yes, doctor, yes, he's the reason these villagers live in fear. Sadly, your arrival has -- has opened many old wounds, revived many bad memories, and that's why I urge you, please accept my hospitality. Stay for tonight at least. I can arrange safe passage for both of you in the morning.

Lucy: That's not a bad idea.

Kevin: Yeah, maybe the worst possible one, too.

Lucy: But I came to get answers on my connection to the family and if he can tell --

Kevin: Wait a minute, mister -- let me ask you something, mister --

James: James. James, doctor. And yes, gladly. I'll tell you anything that does not violate a confidence.

Kevin: You barely reacted when Lucy mentioned that Caleb was a vampire.

James: Well, it was hardly surprising.

Kevin: Just business as usual?

James: Mm-hmm.

Kevin: Didn't skip a beat hearing Caleb's name after all these years, out of the blue, from two strangers?

James: What is your point, doctor?

Kevin: My point is I don't believe you would react so casually had Caleb left many, many years ago. In fact, I believe he left here not too long ago at all. And I believe there's something you're not telling us.

Jamal: Anything?

Alison: No, nothing. No sign of Jack anywhere.

Jamal: I should've known.

Alison: Jamal, I don't understand any of this. He went through so much to save Livvie. Why would he want to die now?

Jamal: With Caleb gone, he thinks he's the only threat left to her.

Alison: But how is he going to do it?

Jamal: He knows that he needs blood to keep going, right?

Alison: Yeah.

Jamal: So if he decides to stop feeding --

Alison: Oh, my God, Jamal.

Jamal: Look, without any more blood, he might be able to last a few more hours, then it'd be over.

Alison: Well, we have to find him!

Jamal: Yeah, yeah, but if we do, how do we make him do something that he doesn't want to do?

Alison: All right, think, think, think, think, think. We have to put ourselves in his shoes. Ok, if I was going to die and I knew that it wasn't going to be very pretty, where would I look, where would I hide?

Jamal: Yeah, well, if it was me, I'd probably crawl under a rock.

Alison: Jamal, Jamal, that's it. Jack thinks that he's a monster just like Caleb, right?

Jamal: Right.

Alison: Ok, so then he would go to where Caleb would go.

Jamal: Right, and the only place that Caleb has been --

Alison: Lately is the catacombs.

Jamal: Is the catacombs.

Alison: Come on, let's go.

Jack: Livvie, remember me. Oh. It's almost -- almost over.

Livvie: Oh, Jack. Well, here I am, at our place, where we first met, where -- where you taught me not to be afraid. Where I was so happy just loving you, feeling all those things that -- for the first time in your arms. God, all that joy. I'm so sorry I pushed you away. I'm sorry I couldn't love you the way you wanted me to before it all fell apart, but when you died on that bike, Jack, a part of us died, too, and no matter how hard we tried, we just couldn't get it back. Maybe you were right to just walk away. Maybe it was the only thing that could make us move forward in our lives. But it just -- oh, it hurts so much, Jack. I come here every time my heart gets broken, every time I've lost you. Only this time I don't have a heart to break. All the heart I had is gone, and there's nothing left. You gave me my heart, Jack, and tonight it's gone forever with you.

Jack: You were my life, Livvie. Everything. And now I have to let you go to save you. My love, goodbye.

Livvie: Goodbye, Jack.

James: I don't blame you for being wary, doctor. I imagine were I in your place, I'd feel the same way.

Kevin: So if we insist on leaving?

James: Your lives are yours to risk. You're not prisoners. However -- and this may explain my lack of a suitable reaction response to the word "vampire" -- I -- I beg you to remember that in this part of the world, though uncommon, such creatures are very real.

Lucy: I thought Caleb was the last.

James: "Was," did you say? Did you say "was?"

Kevin: Well, we certainly didn't want to be the bearer of bad news, but yes. Your master Caleb is dead.

James: Oh. I wasn't aware. Do you by any chance know how or who?

Lucy: It was Michael. Caleb's brother Michael. Michael destroyed Caleb.

James: Master Caleb's brother, Michael. That must have been an extraordinarily difficult thing for Michael to do. They were very close once upon a time.

Kevin: Twins usually are.

James: Generally. Well, I think we can both agree on one thing, doctor -- that this life is full of the most unexpected surprises. If you'll be so kind as to excuse me, I have important business that I must tend to, given these new circumstances.

Kevin: Well, we may not still be here once your business is finished.

James: Choice is yours. Stay or leave.

Lucy and Kevin: Leave.

Kevin: I'm going to call Victor, see if he can find us a way to get the hell out of here.

Lucy: The sooner the better, Doc.

Kevin: You'll cover with the old guy?

Lucy: Yeah, stalling's my specialty. I'm fine.

Kevin: All right, you sure?

Lucy: Yes, you be safe.

Kevin: Ok. I won't be long.

Lucy: Ok, don't be long. Please don't be long. Ok.

[Lucy whistles]

Ian: New rules for the party -- here's another tall one.

Karen: Another one?

Ian: Yeah.

Frank: Hey, who put him in charge?

Eve: No one, but sometimes I let him think he is.

Ian: Anyway, here's to everyone in attendance looking forward. I got a crick in my neck from looking over my shoulder, so let's all agree that whatever's over and done with is over and done with.

Eve: Hear, hear.

Frank: Oh, I second the motion. Cheers.

Karen: You should party while you can. Before you know it, you'll have the patter of little feet to answer to.

Eve: Oh, yes!

Frank: That's right, that's right. There will be a new addition pretty soon, bringing long, sleepless nights.

Eve: Oh, bring it on. I can't wait for all of it.

Ian: Neither can I.

Eve: Hmm, the long sleepless nights, the early morning crying --

Karen: And the Irish lullabies?

Eve: I'll tell you something -- I cannot wait to hold this little baby in my arms, look into his eyes for the first time, and tell him how much I love him. And I love you, too.

Ian: Yeah? Great.

Karen: On the very first night you do that, why don't you dangle this in front of his little blue eyes?

Eve: Karen! Aw.

Ian: Hmm.

Karen: I couldn't resist. Go ahead.

Eve: Ok. Oh.

Karen: I wanted to be the first one to give you a baby gift.

Eve: Thank you so much.

Ian: Oh, it's lovely.

Eve: It's beautiful. Look.

Ian: It is beautiful. Thank you.

Eve: Hey, would you mind putting it on, please?

Ian: No, not at all. Let's get this heavy thing off you first.

Eve: Yes, with pleasure.

Ian: Never liked this thing.

Eve: Because Michael gave it to me?

Ian: No. Because it isn't you.

Eve: Well, I am so glad to be rid of it.

Ian: Well, there you are. This gives me a chance -- hang on. Let me do this right here. I'm good at this. Now I can nibble on your neck a little bit.

Frank: All right, all right, all right, all right, grab your glasses. It's time for another toast.

Eve: Ok, another toast. What are we toasting to now?

Frank: Well, what else? To all of us.

Karen: To our friendship.

Ian: To the future.

Eve: And to our baby.

Ian: To the baby!

Karen: To the baby!

Frank: Hear, hear.

Livvie: I can't stay here all night. I have to let go.

[Rustling]

Livvie: Jack? Jack, is that you?

Caleb: Olivia.

Livvie: Caleb.

Livvie: Caleb.

Alison: Oh, my God. Jack. Jack.

Jamal: Hey. Hey.

Jack: Go away, go away. I don't want any help.

Jamal: Forget it, forget it. You're not going through with this, man.

Jack: You can't stop me, Jamal.

Jamal: Yes, we can. Ali, stay with him, ok?

Alison: Where are you going?

Jamal: G.H. to get some blood.

Jack: No, I won't take it!

Alison: Yes, you will.

Jack: No, I'm not, Ali.

Alison: Come on, please don't do this. Don't do this.

Jack: I have to.

Alison: No, you don't. Jack, you are my friend! I am begging you, please, please don't do this.

Caleb: I just wanted to love you. That's all. Why should I be cursed for loving you, for wanting to be wrapped in your arms for all eternity?

Livvie: I'm so sorry.

Caleb: It doesn't have to end, Olivia.

Livvie: What?

Caleb: You know what I need. You know what will give me life.

Livvie: Life?

Caleb: Let me in. Let me love you. That's what I need.

Livvie: Love you.

Caleb: Make me strong again, Olivia. Make me yours. Please save me. Please be mine.

Livvie: Yours.

[Music plays]

Jack: No! No!

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Caleb: This is our moment, Olivia. No one can ever take it away from us. No one.

Lucy: Me and you, we're sort of, like, related? Does that mean you're a vampire, too?

Alison: I'm going to do this because it's the only way, Jack. Please, Alison, you can do it.
