Caleb's Voice: I want that serum, and I want to see how Dr. Wexler's responding. So I'd like to see you both tonight. You know, there's this new club in town called Tempted. I'd like you to be there. Or stay at home and start picking out the suit you want to be buried in.

Karen: This protein drink is disgusting.

Chris: Yeah, but it's good for you. That's what counts. Put a little spring in that step. You look like you could use it. It's already got some color in your cheeks.

Karen: It's makeup. I have the internal organs of an 85-year-old woman, and this is supposed to make me feel better?

Chris: Yeah, but -- but you are getting better. I'm sure of it.

Karen: You know, you wouldn't be so confident if you knew how I felt.

Chris: Which is exactly why we're getting you out tonight. Come on. Let's put this down. Hey, I'm taking care of this. Come on. I told you, I'm on top of it, I promise.

Karen: Ok.

Chris: Hey, one night out will do us both a world of good. There you go. Huh?

Karen: Thanks.

Jamal: I cannot believe that the Hartmans just took off with Hope.

Valerie: Because they didn't take a chance and wait like we did. You and Alison knew you were Hope's father, and you sat on it. Your girlfriend scared them away.

Jamal: Look, we can still find them. Ok? Dara -- Dara works in the D.A.'s office. Maybe she can help, all right?

Valerie: They could be anywhere, Jamal. I'm never going to see my baby again.

Jamal: Val, come on.

Alison: Jamal -- Jamal, I'm so glad you're here. Listen, we need to be really careful. What? What? What's the matter?

Jamal: The Hartmans -- the Hartmans skipped town with Hope.

Alison: Oh, my God. Well, I will do whatever it takes to help find them, ok? And we will, I promise.

Jamal: Yeah, all right.

Alison: But there's something even scarier that we have to worry about.

Frank: Hey. I'm heading home to clean up, then I'm going over to that Tempted place to hear what Karen has to say. You change your mind about coming?

Gabriela: No.

Frank: Ok.

Gabriela: Frank, don't go.

Frank: I have to go. You read that message. Karen wants to explain what's going on with her and Chris.

Gabriela: Well, I -- I just have this feeling, you know? I got it when I saw Livvie at the hospital.

Frank: Livvie? What did she have to do with this?

Gabriela: I don't know. But I got the same feeling when Karen sent that message to both of us.

Frank: No, I think it was pretty straightforward.

Gabriela: No, not really. I mean, she didn't act like there was anything left to explain when we saw her with Chris. And why does she want me there? You know, the whole thing is just very strange.

Frank: Strange is her hooking up with Ramsey to begin with. Look, I have to hear what she has to say, so I'm going either way.

Gabriela: All right. Fine. I don't want you to go by yourself.

Frank: Bad vibes and all?

Gabriela: Yeah. Really bad vibes.

Jack: No. No. I have to get out of here. I have to warn everybody about Caleb! Let me out of here!

Livvie: Wow. Dad, you look great.

Kevin: Yeah, well, I'm not sure this is a good idea.

Livvie: Of course it is. Lucy went through a lot of trouble to set this up, and you always told me talking things out is good.

Kevin: Then why won't she return my calls? I can't find her anywhere.

Livvie: That's because she's at the spa.

Kevin: At the spa. You know, I called over there. They told me she hadn't been there in months.

Livvie: Well, that's because she decided to use a new one. Dad, don't worry so much.

Kevin: Well, I can't help it. Do you have the number?

Livvie: She had to have left by now to get ready for your dinner, which you should be getting to.

Kevin: This just isn't like Lucy. I mean, no matter what is going on with us, she always returns my calls.

Livvie: She probably just wants to talk to you in person.

Kevin: Well, what about Jack?

Livvie: What about him?

Kevin: Livvie, he's disappeared, too.

Livvie: I'm sure he's fine.

Kevin: Well, I'm not. Livvie, he was in bad shape when he was here.

Livvie: Dad, I think you're worrying too much about everything. People aren't as predictable as you think.

Kevin: Livvie, both Lucy and Jack have been talking about Caleb being back, and now we can't find either one of them. And you don't seem the least bit concerned about it. Now, what is going on?

Eve: Ok. Ok, please, God -- please let Kevin have good news about Danny.

James: Good evening, madam. Welcome to Tempted.

Eve: Thank you. Hello.

James: Allow me to take your coat.

Eve: Oh, thanks. I never even knew this place existed.

James: Oh, yes. Tempted is a very special place. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, if you don't mind my saying.

Eve: It sounds wonderful.

James: It will be. In fact, you're one of our first customers.

Eve: Oh, well -- ok.

James: Are you meeting someone?

Eve: Yes, I am -- Dr. Kevin Collins.

James: Well, Dr. Collins isn't here as yet, but I'm sure he won't keep such a beautiful young woman waiting. Please.

James: Enjoy.

Jamal: Alison, what are you talking about? What do you mean, scary? What do you --

Alison: I just have this feeling. I can't explain --

Valerie: Great. We're trying to find our daughter, and you've got this bad feeling?

Alison: Whoa, wait a second. "Our daughter?"

Valerie: Yeah, I know Jamal's Hope's father, no thanks to you.

Alison: Jamal --

Bob: Hey, Jamal.

Jamal: Yeah?

Bob: I didn't see you come in. Someone left you a message.

Jamal: Thanks. All right. It's from the Hartmans.

Valerie: What does it say?

Jamal: They're back in town, and they want us to meet them at the new restaurant called Tempted.

Valerie: When?

Jamal: Tonight.

Alison: No. You can't go.

Ian: What are you doing here?

Eve: I told you, I'm meeting a friend for dinner.

Ian: Right.

Eve: And this is your something special that you had to do?

Ian: The place wasn't my idea.

Eve: You're meeting Lucy, aren't you?

Ian: Yeah, I am. What about you?

Eve: Kevin.

Ian: Right. Right. Well, I -- I'm not sure what Lucy wanted, but I'm sure I can call her and tell her --

Eve: What do you mean, you're not sure what Lucy wanted?

Ian: Livvie told me that I should meet Lucy here.

Eve: Livvie told me to meet Kevin here. I was wondering why he didn't just call me himself.

Ian: I was wondering the same.

Eve: Ok. I know what's going on here. I know what Livvie's trying to do. She's trying to get the four of us together.

Ian: And why would she do that?

Eve: Because she's a nice girl who's still young enough to believe in happily ever after. I got to go. I'm going to call Kevin, and then I'm going to go home.

James: Good evening, madam.

Chris: Reservation under Dr. Ramsey.

James: Yes, of course. So good of you to join us. And the young lady?

Chris: Dr. Karen Wexler.

James: Splendid. I have a special table reserved for both of you.

Chris: Ian and Eve are right there. Ok? We have to look like a real couple, so help me out, would you? We don't want them to suspect anything.

Karen: You mean, like I'm dying?

Chris: Hey.

Karen: Hey.

Ian: What's going on here?

Eve: Karen, where have you been? I haven't seen you in ages, and I've left a lot of messages on your machine.

Chris: She's been busy.

Karen: I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you. He's right. I have been busy, and then I got the flu.

Eve: And Chris is taking care of you?

Chris: Of course I am. That's what you do when you're in love, right?

Eve: So I've heard.

Karen: You have?

Ian: Yeah, Frank told us after we stitched him up.

Karen: Stitched him up from what?

Ian: A bar fight. It seems he was upset about something.

Karen: Is he all right?

Eve: Yeah. He's going to be fine. But more importantly, how are you?

Karen: What do you mean?

Eve: Karen, it looks like you've got something more than just the flu. Are you sure there isn't something else really wrong?

Jack: Let me out of here. Let me out of here! Ok. Ok. Ok. Just think. Just think. Got to get my strength back up. No one knows about Caleb. No one knows that Livvie's helping him. I'm the only one who can warn them. Ok. I just have to figure out how. Ok. Take it easy. Easy.

Jack: Come on. Easy. Go easy.

Jack: Ok. Ok.

Livvie: I would be concerned about Lucy and Jack if I thought they were in any kind of trouble. But just because they haven't called you back or they're not where they said they were going to be doesn't mean that anything horrible has happened.

Kevin: And the fact that it's Jack and Lucy talking about Caleb being back doesn't concern you at all?

Livvie: No, of course it does. I'm just trying really hard not to overreact the way I did before because that's when everything goes wrong, Dad, for all of us. And I don't want that to happen again, Dad. All that stuff was in my head, and I know that now. And I'm finally getting my life back together. But now I've made everyone else crazy. You know, it's my fault -- everything I did before Caleb died. I must be keeping him alive for people, just seeing me.

Kevin: No, no. No, Livvie. None of this is your fault. Look, what Jack and Lucy are talking about has nothing to do with you. I overreacted, and I took it out on you. Look, you've been amazing. And I think we would all do better to follow your lead. I'm sorry I questioned your feelings.

Livvie: I don't blame you. All I've brought into your life is problems.

Kevin: That couldn't be further from the truth. Livvie, you're the most incredible daughter that any father could ever ask for. You've been through more than any person has a right to go through, and you've come out stronger in the end for it. I think the only thing I regret is not spending more time with you. The one person in the world who means more than anything to me is right in front of me. Whatever Lucy wants to talk about, it can just wait.

Livvie: What?

Kevin: Yeah. I'm going to stay here with you and Daniel. In fact, we'll make a night of it. It'll just be the three of us.

Livvie: No, Dad, you have to go.

Livvie: I didn't mean it like that, Dad. It's just you and Lucy mean so much to me, I don't want you to miss out on a chance to talk about things no matter what the outcome is.

Kevin: What Lucy and I have to work out is going to take more than one talk.

Livvie: Please, Dad? Please? It sounded really important to Lucy, and it sounds like you'd feel much better.

Kevin: Well, I don't want to leave you alone right now.

Livvie: I know how much you love me, and that means everything to me. And I love you, too. That's why I want you to go and work out your problems. Or at least try. Come on, Dad. I want you to be happy.

Kevin: You already make me happy. Come here. And I only worry about you because that's what fathers do.

Livvie: And I worry about you, too, because that's what daughters do. So, go. Go. Hurry. I'll be fine. Danny and I will be fine.

Kevin: I love you.

Livvie: I love you, too.

Livvie: Ok.

Livvie: This is your big night, sweetie. You finally get to be with your mommy and daddy, where you've always belonged.

Jamal: Alison, what has gotten into you? Look, why shouldn't we go?

Alison: It doesn't make any sense, for one thing. Ok? I mean, the Hartmans -- they leave town to get Hope away from you, and then the next minute, they want to meet you? That doesn't make any sense.

Jamal: Look, we have to hear what they have to say. I don't see how it could hurt.

Alison: Jamal, please. I just have a really bad feeling about this, about tonight --

Valerie: Please.

Alison: Look, do you believe that each person has their own guardian angel? You know? And maybe that they come down to try and protect you when something really bad is about to happen?

Jamal: Like, Bible angel?

Alison: Yeah.

Jamal: Ali, come on. What are you talking about, baby?

Alison: Nothing. It's just that --

Valerie: We got to go, or we're going to be late.

Jamal: Look, we'll talk later, ok?

Alison: No. Later might be too late. Come on.

Jamal: Ali, come on.

Alison: Ok, then I'll go with you. I will. It's fine.

Jamal: You can't.

Alison: Jamal, please?

Jamal: You -- you can't. Please, just -- just stay out of this. Ali, come on.

Alison: Ooh. Jamal. I wish that I could tell you that Rafe was an angel, but -- that's how I know that something bad's going to happen. I need to make sure that you're ok.

Jack: Hey, hey --

Bob: Hey.

Jack: Have you seen Alison and Jamal?

Bob: Oh, you just missed them.

Jack: Where did they go?

Bob: Some hot new restaurant called Tempted. Yeah, Jamal got a message to meet someone there.

Jack: Tempted?

Bob: Yeah. It's downtown. Everyone seems to be going there tonight.

Jack: That's it. Caleb's throwing a party.

Karen: It's the tail end of the flu. Really, I'm fine.

Eve: Karen, if you're not feeling well, we can get you to the hospital and get you checked out.

Chris: I've already done that. Ok? And we're doctors, remember?

Eve: Yeah. Thanks. Karen, are you sure you're ok --

Karen: I'm sure. I'm sure. We're not staying that long. In fact, maybe we should just head back.

Chris: No, no. We haven't even sat down, ordered yet.

Ian: You seemed awfully worried about Frank for someone who just dumped him.

Chris: Oh, great. What is he doing here?

Frank: You said you had something to say to me? So go ahead. Explain.

Karen: I don't know what you're talking about.

Frank: You left a message for us to meet you here so you could explain what we saw between you.

Karen: I didn't leave a message.

Gabriela: I told you something else was going on here.

Chris: You know, this is probably not such a good idea after all. Why don't we just go home?

Frank: Whose home?

Ian: Is this the only place open tonight?

James: Greetings. So kind of you both to come.

Jamal: Thank you. What are Frank and Eve and everyone else doing here?

James: Well, I could seat you by your friends if you wish.

Jamal: No, no, no. Actually, we're here to see another party -- the Hartmans?

James: Ah, yes. Of course. They called. They did say they'd be a trifle late.

Jamal: Ok.

Ian: Let's get out of here, Lambert.

Eve: I'm waiting for Kevin.

Ian: Something's going on here.

Eve: I know, but we can't just leave --

James: Ladies and gentlemen -- ladies and gentlemen, it is indeed an honor to have you here as guests for the grand opening of Tempted. Now, to celebrate the occasion, the champagne will be on the house. If you will excuse me for a moment, I will retrieve a unique vintage from our wine cellar.

Ian: We're leaving now.

Eve: No, I want to wait till Kevin's here.

Gabriela: This place is creeping me out.

Kevin: What the hell is going on here?

Livvie's Voice: All I've brought into your life is problems.

Kevin's Voice: That couldn't be further from the truth. Livvie, you're the most incredible daughter that any father could ever ask for.

Livvie: My father doesn't understand what I have to do, what I'm destined to do.

Kevin: What is this, someone's warped idea of a surprise party?

Eve: Livvie told me that you wanted to meet me here because you had news about Danny.

Kevin: I don't have any news about Danny. I'm supposed to meet Lucy here.

Ian: No, no, I'm meeting Lucy here.

Eve: Well, I think what Livvie was trying to do was to get the four of us here together.

Ian: That doesn't explain everybody else.

Kevin: Wait, wait, wait. So no one actually talked to Lucy?

Ian: I --

Chris: You know, we aren't here because of Livvie or Lucy, so we're just going to be on our way.

Ian: Hold it. Who told you to come?

Chris: No one. We were meeting with a potential investor for a new business venture I'm setting up.

Karen: We were?

Chris: Yes. And he didn't show, so we're leaving.

Frank: Wait. You're not going anywhere, Ramsey.

Valerie: Jamal, what's going on?

Kevin: Wait a minute! Has anyone seen Lucy?

Eve: No.

Ian: No.

Jamal: No, we haven't.

Gabriela: Me, either.

Chris: You know what? I suggest we all get out of here -- now.

James: It's bad manners to leave a party so soon. Especially when it's just beginning.

Kevin: You're dead.

James: That's a matter of opinion. Now, one more guest should be arriving just about now.

Jack: Ok, ok. Everybody out now! Caleb lured us here. He's back to kill us.

James: Ladies and gentlemen, it's showtime!

Kevin: You son of a --

>> on the next "Port Charles" --

Caleb: Very soon, my guests will know exactly what I have in store for them.

Livvie: Time to see your new daddy.

Kevin: Where is Lucy? Right now.

Jack: Lucy's dead.
