Alison: Rafe? Rafe, where are you? Where did you fly off to? "Angel, be back soon. Love, Rafe." "Angel." That's sweet.
Rafe: You're up.
Rafe: Wow. You look amazing. Here, look, I got some bakery stuff -- croissants, to be precise.
Alison: Yeah, I can see that.
Rafe: Some hot coffee, and these to start the day off right.
Alison: Those are -- they're beautiful, but why? Why this morning?
Rafe: First, tell me you love them. Go on, take a whiff.
Alison: No, I can already tell you I love them. They're beautiful.
Rafe: Well, that's why I bought them.
Alison: Wait -- you bought these?
Rafe: Yeah. I just, you know, can't make them appear anymore. Oh, well. Well, look -- you know, I thought you'd still be upset after last night, you know, with Jamal.
Alison: Yeah. I am. You know, I can -- I can still see his face when you -- when you walked in the door and you said that you had made me that key, you know, for this place, and he was just so hurt when he realized that I was moving in with you.
Rafe: I know. And, see, that kind of got me thinking.
Alison: About Jamal?
Rafe: No, about us. You know how much I love you.
Alison: And I love you, but --
Rafe: But -- maybe this whole thing of us just being together six weeks -- maybe that's just not right. Maybe it's not -- it's not fair.
Rafe: Well, I said "maybe," ok? Not not fair to our friends or to us, but not fair to you, Alison. It's not fair to you.
Chris: Ok, Amy. Let's see if there's something in this picture I might have missed before. Hey, if it isn't the mystery woman.
Amy: Good morning, Sherlock. And what are we up to this morning?
Chris: Well, we're still digging.
Amy: Hmm. Any luck?
Chris: Soon. Very soon.
Amy: I wouldn't count on it. You've been spending all this time trying to sniff out my secret, and I haven't got one.
Chris: Oh, Amy, everybody's got secrets.
Amy: All right, that's it. Where is it?
Chris: Where's what?
Amy: You know what. Hand it over.
Amy: My hospital I.D. I had it right here.
Chris: Well, then it should still be there.
Amy: Well, it would have still been here if you hadn't stolen it for your silly investigation.
Chris: Amy, I already have one silly picture of you. Why would I need your I.D.?
Amy: I don't know, ok? All I know is that it's missing. And if it's not here and you say you don't have it --
Chris: I don't.
Amy: Fine. Then where is it?
Kevin: You just happened to find Amy's I.D. Just lying around?
Ian: Never mind how I got it. Just scan it so I can get it back to her before she starts missing it.
Kevin: Let's just hope Victor's contacts at the agency have the information we need. Like, how are Amy and Paige connected?
Ian: Yeah, how? That's the question.
Kevin: Well, let's hope they have more than they both wear a strange watch and the watch points to the number six.
Ian: And that Amy's leaving in six weeks.
Kevin: And we don't know what Paige's plans are. Ok, e-mail's ready. Just attach the scan. Ok. Before we know it, we might have the information we need. And there it goes.
Paige: There goes what? What are you two fine doctors up to this morning?

Alison: Our being together is not fair?
Rafe: To you, Alison.
Alison: Rafe, I want to be with you. I want to be with you as long as I can.
Rafe: Ok. Look. See this? Look at it, all right?
Alison: I know.
Rafe: There are six weeks on the clock, ok? That's it. Go on, look. You see? That's it.
Alison: I know about the watch.
Rafe: And so, when my time's up, I'm gone. And I'm not coming back.
Alison: Ok, stop.
Rafe: Ever. Ok? And I just don't think it's right for me to just fall into your life like this and expect you to change everything that counts and have you open up your heart --
Alison: You didn't make me do anything.
Rafe: And get wound up in this whirlwind romance. In a couple weeks, I'm just going to vanish, leaving you here, and I don't think that's right.
Alison: Ok, ok, listen to me.
Rafe: Whatever you think, I don't think it's right.
Alison: This is my choice, ok? I'm here because I want to be here. And the only thing that is not fair is that you can't stay with me forever.
Rafe: I wish I could change that. I can't.
Alison: I know you do. I know -- I know you can't, ok? And I'm ok with that.
Alison: Listen to me. This really is right where I want to be. Even if it were only six minutes, I would still be right here.
Rafe: I'd do anything if I could stay here, if I could just take this watch and stop time and stop the hands from moving.
Alison: You know, I am so sick of this watch. I'm so sick of this thing!
Rafe: Ok, you're sick of it. Would you give it back to me, please?
Alison: All it does is just remind me that you're going to be leaving and I just hate it!
Rafe: Alison, don't!
Alison: I hate it!
Kevin: Well, you -- you heard that, Ian. What are we up to?
Ian: I heard that, sure.
Paige: It must be very interesting, considering the way you two are manning that machine like armed guards.
Kevin: No, no --
Ian: No, we're --
Kevin: Well, we're --
Ian: We're working together.
Paige: On a case?
Kevin: Exactly. Ian has a patient --
Ian: Who we think is withholding some information.
Kevin: Yeah. So he wanted to discuss the psychology, see if he could find a way to break down the barrier.
Ian: With the mysterious parts of the case that I don't, you know --
Kevin: Right, right. Exactly. Which is good. Which is good because I did want to explain something to you. I'm afraid this case will take up quite a bit of my time, and that means moonlighting as a portrait painter will have to take a back seat for a while.
Paige: Oh. I'm sorry to hear that.
Kevin: But you understand?
Paige: Well, of course, yes. I mean, we can just start up again as soon as you guys are finished.
Kevin: Well, that's just the thing. This case could tie me up for weeks.
Ian: Well, it's a -- it's an interesting case. We're trying to write it up, you know.
Paige: But, Kevin, you can't. I mean, I can't -- I don't have have that much time left.
Kevin: Well, I just assumed you would understand that my work has to come first, Paige.
Paige: But the portrait, it's --
Kevin: It's just going to have to wait.
Paige: But -- but it can't wait, Kevin, because I have to leave.
Kevin: Well, where exactly are you going?
Paige: Back home.
Kevin: To England?
Paige: There are some things that I need to take care of, and I need to go back.
Kevin: Well, I mean, there's no reason why we can't pick this up again once you come back here.
Paige: I won't be coming back here, Kevin. Not for a long time. That's why it's so important to finish the portrait now.
Kevin: Oh. Well, when are you leaving?
Ian: How soon?
Paige: Um -- six weeks.
Kevin: Six weeks? That soon?
Paige: That soon.
Chris: What is the big deal? I have even placed things in the wrong spot and, you know, ended up looking for it, wondering where it went. And you -- come on, you're blind, right?
Amy: Oh, you are a master detective. You know something, Chris.
Chris: Yes, I do. Absolutely. I know that I'm really close to figuring out this little secret of yours.
Amy: Ok. I give up. You're too smart for me. I'm an undercover agent for the CIA.
Chris: Yeah, actually, I would buy that one. Or maybe --
Chris: A porn star.
Amy: Ah, you got me again. Who ratted me out?
Chris: Or a con artist.
Chris: Or an amateur square dancing champion. Or a Central American dictator.
Amy: All the above and more, doctor. Why are you looking down? How about looking at me?
Chris: Mm-hmm. Good ears.
Amy: I'm waiting to hear a good answer.
Chris: Well, I think I just found the first clue as to what your secret might be.
Chris: Yeah. It's in this -- this picture I have of you.
Amy: Oh, God. Not that stupid picture again.
Chris: Yeah, you're wearing a necklace.
Amy: Yeah. It's not me.
Chris: Oh, no. No, it's definitely you. But the initials are wrong.
Alison: Well, you see?
Chris: It's not A.S. -- Amy Stradling. It's A.H.
Chris: So I'm wondering what the "H" stands for. Come on, Amy. What's your name? What's your real name?
Kevin: Six weeks?
Paige: That's all I have.
Kevin: Well, I thought you'd at least stay here until the painting was finished.
Paige: Well, I didn't think it would take this long.
Kevin: I'm sorry. I didn't know I had a time limit.
Paige: Isn't there some way we could finish the portrait before I leave? Please. I mean, I'll pose for you any time you have a spare moment -- midnight, dawn. Promise you'll try.
Kevin: I don't see why we can't work it into the schedule, right?
Ian: Well, if she only has six weeks left.
Paige: Does that mean you'll try?
Kevin: Of course I'll try. We'll make it work, don't worry.
Paige: Thank you.
Kevin: Oh, please.
Paige: It means so much to me, you have no idea.
Paige: Thanks. Well, I'll let you two get back to work. Ian?
Kevin: So, Amy and Paige are both leaving in six weeks. But where?
Ian: Why is this portrait so important to her?
Kevin: I don't know.
Ian: And I thought she was going to go nuts when you said that you weren't going to finish it. Something's strange about her.
Kevin: She has a secret. But trust me, she is not some alien shape-forming pod person clone from a B movie.
Ian: Are you sure about that? Things pop up around here.
Kevin: I grew up with this woman.
Kevin: She knows things about me no one else could possibly know. That is Paige, the real Paige.
Ian: Maybe it's not the Paige you remember. Maybe something happened to her.
Kevin: And to Amy. Maybe that's what connected them.
Ian: Wait a minute. Wait, wait, wait.
Ian: You say you know Paige, that you can vouch for her.
Kevin: Right, right. But Amy's a stranger.
Ian: No, but she isn't. Not to everyone in this town. There's someone who thinks he knows her from his past.
Ian: Chris Ramsey.
Amy: What's my real name?
Chris: Yeah. And forget about telling me that you don't know what I'm talking about.
Amy: I would like to forget all about this conversation. I've got too many important things to --
Chris: And forget about changing the subject.
Amy: You want to talk about this subject? I am exactly who I say that I am. I have no deep, dark secret, other than I don't floss every day.
Chris: Oh, that's funny.
Amy: No. You know what's funny? Or rather sad? Is that a man like you has so little to do with his life that he's sitting down with some dime-store magnifying glass looking at a picture of me --
Chris: Hey, I will have you know that I actually paid $25 for this magnifying glass. And I had the picture enlarged, anyway. That was pretty clever, huh?
Amy: No question about it, Chris. You're out of your mind. Mm-hmm.
Chris: No question about it, Amy. You're lying. Now, I may not know what your secret is just yet, but I'm getting there.
Amy: Well, how about try getting a life?
Amy: That might help.
Chris: Yeah. You know, maybe you're right. In fact, could you maybe give me a few tips?
Amy: On what?
Chris: Come on, you know what. Starting a new life.
Amy: That's real funny.
Alison: It's just in my face every time I see it.
Rafe: Alison, you --
Alison: Every time you pull it out. It's just six weeks, that's all it is. "Just six weeks, Alison." Just six weeks until you're gone. Six weeks, and you'd better hurry up. Just six weeks. Six weeks -- it's just not a lifetime, which is what it should be. And it's just --
Rafe: Just six weeks.
Alison: And it's not enough.
Rafe: Yeah, I know. It has to be, though.
Alison: I know that. I'm so sorry I ruined your watch.
Rafe: You haven't ruined anything.
Alison: I pounded it. I'm -- I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to.
Rafe: You know what? Take a look at it. Not a scratch, right?
Alison: But how?
Rafe: Well, it's not of this earth. It's beyond any human attempt to change or destroy --
Alison: Wait, wait, wait. That -- wait, that --
Alison: That phrase -- Livvie said that Victor found a watch and he said that it was not of this earth -- those were his exact words, too. He said that like it was -- I don't know -- it disappeared or it was stolen or something, and there was no proof of it either way. But one minute, it was there, and then the next minute, it was gone. It was, like, this --
Alison: Thing she was telling me.
Rafe: You know what? It wasn't this watch.
Alison: Well, I know that. Because that watch was a wristwatch, and your watch is a pocket watch. But it doesn't mean that there's not some sort of connection or something.
Rafe: Why are we wasting all this time talking about watches, huh?
Alison: Because there's one out there just like it, that's why.
Rafe: What do you mean?
Alison: There's another watch out there, and I think you know who it belongs to.
Rafe: Oh, come on. How would I know that?
Alison: Because you would know that. You're not alone, are you? Please, who does it belong to?
Rafe: Alison, please.
Alison: No! Please, am I right? Please tell me. Am -- am I right with what I'm thinking? Is there really another angel here in Port Charles?
Alison: I cannot believe this.
Rafe: Neither can I. Listen --
Alison: Just admit it -- that there are others. There are other angels out there, that you're not alone.
Rafe: Of course, right, there are angels everywhere.
Alison: No, no, no. No, no, no. Don't do that because I believed in angels first, before you, but what I'm talking about is that, like, there's probably angels here in town! That's totally different!
Rafe: Just let it go, ok?
Alison: No. How can I? This is amazing. Are you kidding me? I mean, like, I thought that there was angels, you know, watching over us. I always believed that. But they're not just watching over us. They're, like, hanging out, like normal people. Like -- like -- like tons of normal people, like you.
Rafe: I'm not saying a word.
Alison: Wait, they must be here for, like, some sort of, I don't know, vacation or resort --
Rafe: All right, just stop!
Alison: Or mission or something --
Rafe: Stop right there, please. Just don't say another word, understand? Put it out of your mind.
Alison: How can I?
Rafe: Just stop asking questions.
Alison: Rafe, look, just -- just listen to me, ok? Because you know that I always do -- I can't just put it out of my mind. I'm going to ask you anyways, you know? Because I want to know. I know you want to get it off your --
Rafe: That -- that's not going to work. That's not going to work. Please, just -- I can't take the chance.
Alison: On what?
Rafe: On anyone else finding out about me, or anyone else, or -- or anything else, or anything having to do with this watch or any other watch or just anything. Do you understand? I can't take the chance!
Alison: Rafe, stop. You're afraid.
Rafe: Yes, I'm afraid. They can pull us back any time, Alison!
Alison: "Us," "us," "us." Rafe -- oh, you said "us."
Rafe: Ok, listen. In the six weeks we have left here, if anytime during that time anyone suspects there are angels here, they can just -- take away our passes at any time. And then we just disappear, like that.
Alison: Like, at any time, at any moment?
Rafe: Yeah. And then, you know, we won't have six minutes together, let alone six weeks.
Alison: Ok, ok, ok, ok, ok. Ok, you don't have to say anything else. I'm sorry, I didn't know. I really didn't. I won't say anything else, I promise. I promise.
Rafe: Let's just hope no one else gets that close to finding out the truth.
Alison: Ok, listen to me. We won't let them. Ok? I promise. Because I will not lose you one second sooner than I have to.
Paige: Time's running out, Kevin. You have to finish it. You just have to.
Christina: Daddy, aren't you done yet?
Paige: Sit still, darling.
Kevin: Honey, I know painting a picture takes a long time, but you know why? Because I want it to look as pretty as you and your mommy do right now.
Paige: You know how much I love your daddy, Christina?
Christina: Are you going to kiss again?
Paige: Who, us?
Kevin: Well, now that you mention it -- yes, we are.
Paige: Only six weeks left to make my dreams come true.
Kevin: You really think it's worth the trouble to talk to Chris?
Ian: Yeah. Ramsey's a weasel, but why not -- sure.
Kevin: Amazing how things change overnight.
Ian: How's that?
Kevin: For starters, you and I working together. Chris Ramsey actually being some help.
Ian: Yeah. We've seen stranger things, haven't we?
Ian: What we're not seeing is a quick response from Victor's friends.
Kevin: Let's just give it a few more minutes.
Ian: Is that it?
Kevin: It might be. Let me open the file. Yeah.
Ian: Oh, they found something?
Kevin: They matched the picture from Amy's I.D. -- To a Jane Doe case?
Ian: Jane Doe? How is that?
Kevin: "An unidentified corpse taken to the county morgue last year."
Ian: How can that be?
Kevin: Well, I don't know, but according to this report, Amy's dead.
Chris' Voice: I figured out where I've seen you before. It was in Philadelphia.
Amy's Voice: Well, I've never been to Philadelphia.
Chris' Voice: And now I catch you rummaging through my locker, trying to steal that very same photograph.
Amy's Voice: I was borrowing it to see if anyone else agreed --
Chris' Voice: Oh, please, Amy. Why don't you save us both the time and trouble and just tell me the truth.
Amy' Voice: I don't have to tell you anything.
Chris' Voice: No, you don't, but you might want to, anyway, because once I start digging in that closet of yours, who knows what kind of skeletons will fall out?
Amy: I can't -- I can't let Chris find out the truth about who I am, Papa. No one can. Not yet. Not yet.
>> On the next "Port Charles" --
Lucy: Let me get this straight. You've fallen madly in love with Alison, you're moving in together, and now you're just going to take off?
Paige: Why don't you just admit it, Amy, that you're falling in love with Ian Thornhart?
Ian: Oh, my God.
Kevin: It is Amy, and she looks dead to me.
