Jamal: Yeah, he's about six feet tall, built like a Mack truck, goes by the name of J.D. No, no, no, don't -- don't do anything. You just call me. I'll handle it. All right. Yeah. He's going to be sorry he ever messed with me. Thanks. Later. What's up?

Jack: What do you think you're doing?

Jamal: Looking for J.D.

Jack: Oh, so you're looking to get killed, huh?

Jamal: Yeah, so what?

Jack: You saw what J.D. did to Ricky, Jamal. When did you become so stupid, man?

Ricky: Just leave me alone.

Casey: What are you doing?

Ricky: It's none of your business, Casey. Just go away!

Casey: Ok, look, what are you going to do when you find him, huh?

Ricky: I don't know.

Casey: The guy who did this to you?

Ricky: I don't know, ok? I don't -- what do you do with pond scum?

Casey: Look, Ricky, just let it go.

Ricky: Mind your own business.

Casey: Now, we managed to keep the police out of this until now, all right? If you start looking for revenge, they are going to be on you like white on rice.

Ricky: Yeah? Well, so what?

Casey: "So what?" Man, I thought that's what you were so afraid of.

Ricky: Well, I don't care anymore, Casey.

Casey: Yeah, well, I do.

Ricky: Why?

Casey: Because I -- I do, all right? That's all. I mean, anyway, how's that plastic surgeon going to fix you up if you're in the joint?

Ricky: Look, Casey, there's nothing that anybody can do for me, ok?

Casey: Ricky, look, Jamal and I talked to her, ok? She said she could help you.

Ricky: God, nobody's that good!

Casey: You don't know that.

Ricky: She can't help me, ok? Look at me!

Casey: It's not that bad.

Ricky: I said look at me! I'm a freak!

Eve: Oh! You should know better than to sneak up on a girl in the dark like that.

Ian: There's worse things than being in the dark with you, believe me.

Eve: Forgotten how much I missed this.

Ian: Mm-hmm. There's more where that came from.

Eve: Good.

[Daniel cries]

Eve: Hold that thought.

Ian: Ok. I'll -- I'll check the fuse box. You two going to be ok?

[Daniel stops crying]

Eve: Our son is not afraid of the dark.

Eve: There we go. Now we can see. You're not afraid of the dark, are you? No, you're not. Daddy's going to go fix everything, huh? Yes. He's good at that. He knows how to fix everything. And he loves us.

Ricky: Tell me I'm not a freak. Tell me that this doesn't make you sick to your stomach.

Casey: Look, man, you were a freak before J.D. messed with you. See? Shows how much you know. Look, scars are hot, man. I think they make you look good.

Ricky: You're lying. You make a living out of lying, all right? I'm not lying.

Casey: Come on, Ricky, I'm just --

Ricky: I saw the look on your face, Casey, when you first saw this.

Casey: It doesn't bother me now, ok?

Ricky: Bull.

Casey: Look, you cut your finger, I'm going to faint, ok? It's just because I can't handle the sight of blood. Besides, man, it looks about 100 times better than it did when you first --

Ricky: Don't tell me that this is nothing, ok? Looks like a damn Halloween mask.

Casey: You know what? You know what's a lot scarier than your face? Huh? You sounding like some whiny baby. Man, I have never seen anybody so totally sorry for themselves. Dude, you think this is the worst thing that would ever happen in the world.

Ricky: I don't care what you think, ok? Somebody messes up your life, you don't just get over it. I'd rather die than look like this, Casey!

Casey: Don't say that, ok? You don't know what you're talking about, Ricky. Kid, you don't know what it's like to die.

Ricky: Oh, what, and all of a sudden you know everything about dying?

Casey: Yeah, I do. Ok, I know everything about it.

Jack: Look, what the hell's wrong with you, huh?

Jamal: Look, I am busy, and I don't need you on my back.

Jack: Oh, I'm not here to play babysitter. I'm just trying to figure out when we stopped being friends.

Jamal: We just stopped.

Jack: Jamal, come on.

Jamal: Look, dude, you want to buy into this whole white picket fence thing you got going on with Livvie, you want to pretend all that's real, go right ahead, man. I'm booking out, all right? I walked away from all that.

Jack: No, you threw it away.

Jamal: Whatever, man. It's over. It's over. Look, why don't you back off?

Jack: Because I'm not through with you.

Jamal: No?

Jack: No.

Jamal: You're done.

Jack: No, I'm not done.

Jamal: You're done.

Eve: Oh, no, we're not afraid of the dark, are we? No, we're not, because we're a big boy now, huh? That's strange. The candle just went out all by itself. That's not good. That's not good at all, but you know what? Mommy's going to go and light a million more candles, ok?

[Daniel coos]

Eve: I know. I'll be right back because that's not good. I'm not liking this. I'll be right back, Danny. Ian? I told you not to sneak up on me like that. I'm not kidding. I'm not kidding. Oh, thank God. That's better, huh? That's better, now, isn't it? See? Everything's ok now, huh? Come here, you. Oh, you're my buddy. Everything's ok, huh? Yes.

Ricky: Yeah, this ought to be good. You, Casey the freak, know everything there is to know about being dead.

Casey: That's right.

Ricky: Yeah, what, did you read a book once?

Casey: Didn't need a book.

Ricky: Or, what, did you die and come back to life or something?

Casey: Or something.

Ricky: Yeah, well, you've been watching too much "Springer," Casey.

Casey: Is it really so hard to believe, Ricky? Huh?

Ricky: You're some piece of work, Casey -- a virgin who knows everything there is to know about sex. One of the healthiest girls I've ever met who knows everything there is to know about being dead.

Casey: Oh, God, you make me nuts!

Ricky: Maybe you should go on one of those lecturing tours or get your own show on a cable channel and tell people what it's like to die and go to heaven.

Casey: Yeah, well, at least I know that someone like you won't get that, now, will they?

Ricky: Well, thanks. You know what? Because at least you gave me a second to forget about this. Now get out of here, little girl.

Casey: Look, Ricky -- whoa, whoa, what are you saying, huh? You don't want to hang out with me?

Ricky: I think I've been pretty much telling you that since I met you, Casey!

Casey: Not always, all right, Ricky? And you know that.

Ricky: Yeah. Well, I'm telling you now.

Casey: I only have one week left in this town, and you are blowing it.

Ricky: What?

Casey: We could be hanging out, you know, having a good old time, but no, you got to go prove something to somebody. I don't even --

Ricky: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey, back up a second. You're taking off in a week?

Casey: Yeah, not like it matters, right?

Ricky: Where you going?

Casey: Look, I can't get into details, all right? It's complicated.

Ricky: No, it's not complicated. So your time is up and you got bored, and now you're getting out of here.

Casey: Yeah, pretty much.

Ricky: And you expect me to believe that this has been your plan all along? That you're going to leave next week?

Casey: Yeah.

Ricky: And this has nothing to do with me looking like your worst nightmare?

Casey: No! Look, not everything is about you, Ricky.

Ricky: Right. Have a nice trip.

Casey: Ricky, wait.

Jamal: See, why'd you have to make me go do that?

Jack: Yeah, I really had to twist your arm, didn't I?

Jamal: Look, I told you to back off, didn't I?

Jack: A guy confronts you on your own stuff, and you got to handle it like a man, right?

Jamal: Yeah, that's right.

Jack: That's right! Yeah, I know that hurt.

Jamal: That's cold, man. That's cold!

Jamal: What part of "stay out of my life" don't you understand? Huh, Jack?

Jack: You're not fooling anybody, Jamal.

Jamal: I'm not trying to.

Jack: This whole tough guy act ain't playing, man.

Jamal: You know what? It's better than being a domesticated wimp like you.

Jack: Yeah, well, a wimp is a self-pitying fool like you.

Jamal: Oh, yeah?

Jack: Yeah!

Jamal: Why do you even care?

Jack: You know, I don't know. But I know one thing.

Jamal: Yeah, what's that?

Jack: You're starting to piss me off! Let's just go, ok? Enough's enough. Let's go.

Jamal: Am I supposed to feel bad now? Supposed to cry?

Jack: Hey, you're pretty good at feeling sorry for yourself. You don't need my help. But you know what?

Jamal: What's that, huh?

Jack: You sure did kick Alison to the curb, didn't you? That's a bunch of crap, man.

Jamal: Yeah?

Jack: You think you can do that, huh?

Jamal: He's right again, folks.

Jack: You know something else?

Jamal: What's that?

Jack: You're a lousy friend.

Jamal: You know what? You're really are a pain in my ass.

Jack: Yeah, but I know one thing you're not.

Jamal: Yeah, what's that?

Jack: You're not responsible for Valerie's death.

Ian: Aha, I'm back in business.

Eve: So what was the problem?

Ian: It was a little weird. All the switches were off in the fuse box.

Eve: Well, that happens sometimes, doesn't it?

Ian: Just our unit?

Eve: So what are you saying? Are you saying that somebody's messing with us?

Ian: I don't know. What do you make of it?

Eve: Nothing. Except I get the feeling that Danny and I weren't alone.

Ian: This honeymoon isn't coming a moment too soon, is it?

Eve: You are so right. Just you and me.

Ian: And him.

Eve: And him. Sounds like paradise.

Ian: You sure you're ok, then?

Eve: Yeah. I'm just a little disappointed in myself for resorting back to old habits, that's all.

Ian: What do you mean?

Eve: Well, every time something goes wrong, I think there's danger around the corner.

Ian: No, no, no. No more danger.

Eve: Danger, danger.

Ian: No more danger. It's just us. You and me and some unfinished business.

Eve: That's right.

Ian: Mm-hmm.

Eve: On that note, I think I'll go change into something more comfortable.

[Ian growls]

Eve: I'll be right back. Stay here.

Ian: I'll check the back door just in case.

Ricky: What was that for?

Casey: I don't know. What do you think?

Ricky: I don't know. Girl is leaving town. Maybe it's your way of saying goodbye.

Casey: See, now you're just starting to tick me off.

Ricky: Casey, I'm not complaining. I just don't get you.

Casey: Well, you wouldn't.

Ricky: Hey. I don't get you, ok? And I want to.

Casey: This isn't fair. You know this isn't fair. Man, my whole life, all I've ever known for sure is that if you let yourself feel things, well, you're in for just a whole world of hurt. Ok, so I never let myself feel. I mean, at least not out loud.

Ricky: I'm not following.

Casey: Ugh! Ok. How's about this, then?

Casey: I love you.

Ricky: Whoa. Wait a second, Casey.

Casey: No, no, wait, kid, you don't understand, ok? I have never said that to anyone ever in my life before, ok? But, look, you forced me to, ok? If you think that stupid thing on your face means anything, Ricky, it doesn't. Ricky, I do love you.

Ricky: Casey, I -- are you still leaving?

Casey: That has nothing to do with this.

Ricky: It has everything to do with this.

Casey: Why? Ricky, please, you just got to understand, all right?

Ricky: I understand. I understand plenty. God, it's so obvious. I don't need your pity!

Casey: Look, it's not pity, ok? Didn't you even hear a single word that I said to you?

Ricky: No. No, ok? Words are cheap. The past couple of weeks, you've been keeping your distance from me. And now I get this, and you're telling me that you're in love with me?

Casey: Look, I am, ok? And maybe, maybe seeing you all hurt made me finally realize inside even more, Ricky.

Ricky: You're pathetic, you know that? You think I'm going to let a little punk like you get close to me? I will never give in to your pity. You are nothing but a joke.

Casey: No, man. Here's the joke. I thought I could trust you by telling you the truth about how I felt. Stupid, stupid me.

Jack: Well, this is the first time I ever heard you speechless. Which is a good thing because I'm not done with you. I've got more I want to say. No, just sit down. You want to fight after this, that's fine, but just hear me out first. Not too long ago, all I wanted to do was die.

Jamal: Come on, man. That was different, Jack.

Jack: No, it wasn't.

Jamal: Yes, it was.

Jack: No, it wasn't. I came to you because you were the only one I could trust. Jamal, I wanted to die. I wanted to kill myself. But you know what you said? You said, "No. No, we're going to find some other way. I'm not going to let you do that." You wouldn't give up on me.

Jamal: Come on, man. I don't need to hear this.

Jack: Oh, no, you -- you're just killing yourself little -- little by little. I got news for you. I'm not going to let you do it. I can't.

Jamal: Oh. Big hero thinks he can save the world, huh?

Jack: Oh, I'm not the hero, man. I'm not the hero. I was there. I saw Valerie when she lost it. Valerie wanted to kill somebody, probably Alison. Yeah, but you stopped her. You stopped her from killing an innocent person. You saved Alison's life and probably mine and Livvie's, too. Hey, it sucks that Valerie had to die, man. It does, but you had no control over her actions. It's not your fault. As far as I'm concerned, you're the hero. You kept your cool. You handled your business and you did the right thing. Now, if you want to go kill yourself over that, then, well, I guess you're not the man I thought you were.

Jamal: I tried to get the gun away from her. I tried, man.

Jack: I know.

Jamal: She was talking all crazy and she was threatening to kill Ali, and just -- she had already been hurt so much by me before, anyway, you know? I was -- I never meant to hurt her. I never wanted anybody to die.

Jack: I know.

Jamal: I never wanted her to die.

Ian: Hey, all right.

Eve: Is everything ok?

Ian: Well, no -- yeah. "Ok" doesn't begin to cover it, so, mm-hmm.

Eve: Well, I think I'll have to put the baby in his crib.

Ian: Very good. I'll get some wine for us.

Eve: Ian?

Ian: What's wrong?

Eve: Look. I did not put this in the baby's crib.

Ian: I told you not to teach him how to accessorize at an early age.

Eve: Ian, I'm serious. I would never put this in there. He could choke or something.

Ian: I know you wouldn't, but it was dark. I mean, it happens.

Eve: No, no, no. This was not in there when the lights were on, either.

Ian: Someone was in our house.

Amy: This is Dr. Amy Stradling. That order I canceled yesterday? I'd like to reinstate it, please. Of course I know how dangerous it is. I'm a doctor. Believe me, I will handle it with extreme caution. It's very important to me. Thank you. It's so dangerous, you won't even live to enjoy your stupid little honeymoon, Dr. Thornhart.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Jamal: I need to talk to you. There are some things that I want to say to you that's long overdue.

Chris: I came by to see if you got a chance to take a look at that picture.

Eve: What picture?

Chris: The picture of Amy and her father that I slipped into your purse.

Ian: Amy. What are you doing?
