Karen: I miss you, girlfriend.

[Noise]

Karen: Frank? Is that you? Hello?

Ricky: Ah! Ow.

Karen: Ricky?

Jack's Voice: This is unbelievable. How could Alison's ancestors be in a picture with her?

Jack's Voice: I took a picture of Alison with this camera.

Livvie's Voice: Yeah? And?

Jack's Voice: And when I developed it, Rebecca was in the picture.

Jamal's Voice: No way.

Livvie's Voice: What?

Jamal's Voice: Man, are you sure?

Jack's Voice: No, see your yourself. I have it right here.

Jamal's Voice: Got to check this out --

Livvie's Voice: Rebecca's not in it.

Jamal's Voice: Just Alison.

Jack's Voice: No, no. No, she was there.

Jack: Ok. I know you're there, Rebecca. Let's see if I can find you again.

Alison: Rafe. I miss you so much.

Please, please come back to me. Oh, please.

[Door opens]

Alison: Rafe? Oh.

Lucy: Alison, hi.

Alison: Lucy, hi.

Lucy: Oh, my God. It's her.

Karen: What in the world? I could've killed you!

Ricky: Yeah, tell me about it.

Karen: Here. Let me look. Well, it's just a small bump. I think you'll live.

Ricky: Look, I'm really sorry I scared you.

Karen: What were you doing anyway? And what is this stuff? You weren't --

Ricky: No, no, no, no. No, I wasn't going to rob the place, all right? These are just some of Casey's things.

Karen: Casey?

Ricky: Yeah, I just thought I would keep them for her -- you know, just in case she ever needed them.

Karen: Oh. Oh, so you go sneaking around in the dead of night? Have you ever heard of knocking or, hey, maybe calling?

Ricky: Hey, I would've called except when it comes to me, your boy Frank isn't exactly the welcome wagon.

Karen: Here. Hold this in place.

Ricky: Thanks. And -- and you know, I came by, I saw that all the lights were out, so I figured there was nobody home.

Karen: So where'd you get a key?

Ricky: Oh, I've never had a problem with that.

Karen: Right. So tell me -- why was it so important for you to get Casey's stuff? Have you heard from her?

Ricky: Not really.

Karen: What do you mean, "not really?" Ricky, what's going on?

Ricky: Look, if I told you, you'd think I was crazy.

Karen: I already think you're crazy, so tell me.

Ricky: I know -- I know in my head that she's gone and she's not coming back, but --

Karen: But what?

Ricky: I keep seeing her.

Karen: Seeing her?

Ricky: Yeah, everywhere I go. Everywhere I go, she's there, only it's not her, not really. And then I thought this -- this stupid old candle had something to do with it. I mean, how whacked out is that? I must be losing it.

Karen: I don't think that's whacked at all.

Ricky: You don't?

Karen: I know what it's like to lose someone you care about. You miss them so much and you wish they were here. Your mind starts playing tricks on you. You keep seeing them out of the corner of your eye and you'd swear for a second it was real, but when you turn, they're not there.

Ricky: Yes. That's exactly it.

Karen: Well, it's not all that unusual.

Ricky: So what do you call something like that?

Karen: I think you call it love.

Alison: Lucy, this is my -- my great-great-great grandmother. You were probably thinking that maybe she was this Paige person that Jack keeps talking about because they, like, I guess resemble each other or something.

Lucy: Yeah, they really do. The resemblance is sort of scary even.

Alison: Yeah.

Lucy: You know, speaking of scary, I hope I didn't startle you coming here so late.

Alison: Yeah, actually, you sort of surprised me.

Lucy: I get the feeling you were expecting somebody else.

Alison: No. Um, yeah, I kind of -- I thought maybe it was Rafe. But I know that he's not coming back. I know that that's not possible.

Lucy: You know something? I'm sorry about that. I'm sorry about my cousin, you know? I've never figured out quite all his wanderings, and I don't understand why in the world he'd leave such a great girl that he seemed to love so very much, so I'm sorry.

Alison: Thank you, Lucy. That's really sweet of you. Do you think maybe we can just not talk about that?

Lucy: Gone, done.

Alison: Thanks.

Lucy: Yes, I understand. No more talk about that.

Alison: What are you doing here?

Lucy: Oh. I came to talk to you about those candles.

Alison: Oh. What about them?

Lucy: Well, it's just, you know, I've kind of been hearing things and observing things. They're a bit unique and unusual.

Alison: Well, yeah, I mean, they are. They're like over 100 years old.

Lucy: No, that's not exactly what I mean. See, Victor and Mary sort of got a hold of one of them and it had this, shall we say, effect on them?

Alison: An effect?

Lucy: Yeah. When they light this candle, Victor and Mary are sort of inspired, you know? Well --

Alison: Oh.

Lucy: The point is, is that's not the only occurrence that's been happening. There's -- for example, a candle that Ian was given -- somebody left it -- did you leave that candle for Ian?

Alison: You know, he was hurting so much and I hate to see that, you know, and I just thought that maybe sort of it could help him in a way, a little bit, and --

Lucy: Alison, that was very nice, but it didn't just sort of help him. Those candles have extraordinary powers.

Alison: Well, I know. I'm sure that they do, but it's really like only the sort of power that you hold in your own heart. I mean, it doesn't just, like, produce anything out of the ordinary. It just -- you have it within you.

Lucy: Who told you that?

Alison: Well, nobody, you know? It's just that, you know, I was just looking through some of Rebecca's recipes and I --

Lucy: Rebecca?

Alison: Yeah. Yeah, Lucy, she's my -- she's my great-great-great --

Lucy: Great grandmother.

Alison: Grandmother. Yeah. She's the one who made all the candles.

Lucy: Oh, really? A mighty Barrington turns out to just be a simple candle maker, huh?

Alison: I know, I know. She's not really actually a "usual" Barrington.

Lucy: No, I'm sure she wasn't.

Alison: No.

Lucy: You know what's really weird about that picture? When I look at it, it's almost like she could step out of that and come to life, like she could just join us in conversation right now.

Alison: Right. Yeah, it's very -- she sort of has that effect, that painting.

Lucy: Yeah.

Alison: It's strange.

Lucy: Listen.

Alison: Mm-hmm?

Lucy: You know -- you know me. I've always believed in the power of crystals and --

Alison: Yeah.

Lucy: You know, aromas and incense, and I just -- I'm so curious. I'd really like to try, maybe, one of those candles if you don't mind. I mean --

Alison: Oh, no.

Lucy: If it wouldn't bother you. Could I?

Alison: No, of course. There's several. Do you -- do you like this one, maybe?

Lucy: Yeah.

Alison: It's really pretty. I mean --

Lucy: Oh, it's beautiful.

Alison: Isn't it?

Lucy: Could we actually sort of light it?

Alison: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, come on. Come here. Ok, you sit --

Lucy: Ok.

Alison: Sit right here.

Lucy: Ok.

Alison: I'm going to light this, and I want you to tell me exactly what you feel when you smell it, ok?

Lucy: Ok.

Alison: They're sort of old, so it takes them a long time to light, but now -- now, go ahead. Tell me what you feel.

Lucy: Oh, my. Ooh, I -- I feel so warm. I feel like I'm floating in this heavenly bath and all this warmth is coursing through me like healing energy.

Alison: Lucy? Lucy?

Lucy: Ooh.

Alison: Lucy. Lucy.

Lucy: What?

Alison: Do you know which one this is?

Lucy: No. What, what? Tell me. What is it?

Alison: Lucy, this is the candle of warmth.

Lucy: Warmth?

Alison: Yeah.

Lucy: Oh, my gosh, Alison. Do you realize you have a gold mine here?

Karen: Oh, I don't believe it. Actually, we're out, but Frank's got a nice cab open.

Ricky: Cab?

Karen: Cabernet. You like wine?

Ricky: Yeah, that's cool. Whatever you got is fine.

Karen: You are of age, right?

Ricky: Are you kidding me?

Karen: Well, you just look kind of --

Ricky: Oh, come on. Look, I'm legal, trust me. You want to check my I.D.?

Karen: No, no, no, no. I'll take your word for it.

Ricky: Mmm. It's not bad.

Karen: I'm glad you approve. You're thinking about her, aren't you?

Ricky: Pretty pathetic, huh?

Karen: No, it's not pathetic. Ricky, I already told you I've been there, and there's one thing I realized -- if you want to feel all this incredible love stuff, you got to be willing to feel all the rotten stuff, too. And if you don't let yourself feel it, then there's a good chance that you won't feel anything. And that would be a shame because who knows what you'd miss? There could be something just as amazing right around the corner.

Ricky: No, not for me. Not like what we had. I mean, God, she was like -- like no one I had ever met before. Every time that I thought that I knew her, she'd surprise me.

Karen: How?

Ricky: Ok, like, she'd act all tough and like, you know, it was all about her, but that's -- it was all an act. Deep down, she was sweet and cool. I know, I know. I know it's hard to believe, ok? I know she had an attitude and I know she could be a pain in the butt. And trust me, I don't even know how we hooked up to begin with. I mean, that just all came out of nowhere.

Karen: Well, sometimes that's how it happens. Love kind of sneaks up and before you know it, there's not a damn thing you can do about it. But you know what? That's the best kind of love. What? What are you looking at?

Ricky: I don't know, it's -- I just think it's pretty funny. I mean, I break into the house, I get clobbered over the head with a frying pan.

Karen: Yeah.

Ricky: You know, I figure at the least I'd be hauled off to jail, but instead --

Karen: Here we are talking about love.

Ricky: Yeah. It's nice. You're nice. Thanks for listening.

Alison: Lucy, what are you talking about? Gold mine? I don't have a gold mine.

Lucy: Just -- just please, think about it. Victor and Mary -- they light a candle and they're swept away by passion, right?

Alison: Right.

Lucy: And then Ian lights another candle and he feels so much closer to Eve. And look what just happened. I light a candle called Warmth and I feel all warm and tingly inside. Don't you think that's magic? This is -- this is magic that you have to share with the whole, entire world.

Alison: The world?

Lucy: Yes, absolutely. You mentioned that Rebecca had recipes or some way to make these candles. Please tell me that you have some of those. Do you? Do you? Do you?

Alison: I'm sure, like, I probably have one or two. I don't know. I haven't really checked out her stuff yet, though. What are you suggesting?

Lucy: What I'm suggesting is I think you really should open a candle shop.

Alison: What?

Lucy: Yes. You know what? I could back you. I could put up all the money. I'll be a silent partner.

Alison: Oh, Lucy.

Lucy: Of course, silent has never been my forte, you know? So I'm not going to be silent, but at least I could help you out. What do you say?

Alison: Oh, Lucy -- I mean, I never -- you know, my candles, I never really thought about selling them.

Lucy: Oh, ok. So we'll just -- maybe we could just give them away for free.

Alison: I guess it really wouldn't hurt if I maybe made just like a little something on them.

Lucy: You know, I never found that just a little money hurts anything.

Alison: But where would we put the shop? I mean, where would we -- where? I don't even know where.

Lucy: Ok, wait. Let's think, let's think. The candles are special and unique, so we need someplace special and unique and -- why couldn't we put it here?

Alison: In the barn?

Lucy: Yes, in the barn. It's rustic and charming and unique and unusual, and I could have my decor-- wait a minute. You know, the best part of it is you could make the candles and sell them all in the same spot.

Alison: Yes, that would be awesome, Lucy, but there's just one problem. This isn't my barn.

Lucy: Details.

Alison: I don't even know whose barn it is.

Lucy: Details, details. You know what? I have a realtor. We call him up, we have him go over there, and he makes them an offer they can't refuse. Alison, come on. What do you say?

Alison: Well, do you really think that this could work? I mean, a candle shop?

Lucy: Yeah, I do. I think that everybody in Port Charles is going to want one of Grandma Rebecca's wonderful candles.

Alison: Lucy, thank you.

Lucy: Oh.

Alison: Thank you so much.

Lucy: Oh, you're so welcome. Wait a minute. You're welcome, but I haven't done anything yet.

Alison: No, but you have. You really have. You've done more than you know because, I mean, you're not going with what everybody else thinks right now. They all kind of think that I'm off my rocker, that I'm wasting all my time here.

Lucy: Hey --

Alison: But not you.

Lucy: No, because you're not. You're not. You see, I kind of learned the hard way that everybody has their unique way of grieving over loss, and I think sometimes some people just don't understand. Maybe they don't understand your way.

Alison: But you do.

Lucy: Yeah. Somehow I'm getting there, you know?

Alison: Yeah.

Lucy: So this candle over here --

Alison: Mm-hmm.

Lucy: What's this?

Alison: Oh. Yeah, love -- the Love candle.

Lucy: Yeah.

Alison: I was lighting it for Rafe right before you got here.

Lucy: You know, maybe that's good. Maybe when you light it, you feel closer to him and maybe he feels you in his heart, too, huh?

Alison: Yeah. Well, that's -- that's what he promised me.

Lucy: Listen, if you need anything, please call me. You know, anything.

Alison: Yeah.

Lucy: If it just comes to you, call me, ok?

Alison: I will.

Lucy: In the meantime, I'm going to be working on our capital venture!

Alison: Ok. Ok, well, thank you for everything.

Lucy: You know, I -- I'm just -- I'm going to be taking this --

Alison: Yeah, yeah, do.

Lucy: You don't mind, do you?

Alison: No, I don't. It's yours.

Lucy: Ta.

Alison: Ok.

Lucy: Ok. Ta.

Alison: Ok. Maybe -- maybe this really could work. Maybe -- maybe it could. Rafe, please. Please, just -- just come back to me. Ok? Please. Just come back to me.

Jack: Where are you, Rebecca? I was sure you would show. Ok. Last chance, granny. It is now or never.

Alison: Livvie? Livvie? Livvie. You got to help me.

Livvie: Alison?

Alison: These candles, they're too powerful and I can't get out. You've got to help me, please!

Livvie: Don't worry. I'm going to -- I'm going to help you. I'm coming.

Alison: Livvie!

Livvie: Alison, I can't get in!

Alison: I can't get out! You have to help me!

Livvie: I can't! Ok, ok, I'll try and get through. Ok. Alison, I can't get through!

Karen: You don't have to thank me. It was just nice talking to somebody. I've lost somebody myself.

Ricky: Yeah, I know. I heard about Dr. Lambert. I'm sorry.

Karen: I really miss her. Anyway, that's how I know your mind plays tricks on you, makes you see things and think things so you can believe, if only for a second, that they're still really there, that they've never really gone.

Ricky: Yeah, except that then you feel even worse when you realize that it's not true. They're not there, and they never will be again.

Karen: There's no getting around it. Losing somebody you love is a heartbreaker. But that doesn't mean we should never let ourselves love again because in time, hearts, like bumps on the head, will mend. And when they do, you have these wonderful memories. And that is something no one can ever take away from you. Well, and that is my sermon for tonight. And it's getting late.

Ricky: Yeah, I -- I should get going. Thanks a lot for the talk.

Karen: I hope it helped.

Ricky: It did.

Karen: It helped for me, too. But next time, just knock, ok?

Frank: What the hell's going on here?

Jack: No ghost, no grannies. I must be seeing things. Wait a minute. Something's there. It's -- it's her.

Livvie: Alison! Oh, my God. It was just a dream. Just a bad dream.

Alison: Help me, Livvie. You've got to help me! Oh, Rafe. Please, come back to me. Please, just come back to me.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Livvie: Don't tell me that there's no problem, ok, because Alison's in trouble. I know she's in trouble.

Alison: Did you come back with your magic to make all of my dreams come true?

Rafe: It doesn't matter how, as long as we're together.
