Port Charles Transcript Wednesday 5/29/02
Proofread by Beth
Ricky: You. You are the most amazing woman that I've ever met.
Karen: Ricky, I --
Ricky: Shh. Please, Karen, let me finish. I never dreamed -- well, last night might be the single greatest night of my entire life.
Karen: It was great, and I had a wonderful time too, Ricky, but it can never happen again.
Alison: Rafe? Can you hear me? I hope so. I just feel so close to you here. I know that it wasn't your choice to leave, but I just feel so lost without you, and I just wish that there was some way that you could come back to me.
Minister: Hello. You look like you could use a friend.
Alison: Well, there's not really anything that anybody can say right now to make it any better.
James: Now, we're usually forced to watch the Home Shopping Network all day long. Oh, but this little soap opera -- it's got great potential.
Ed: What's going on?
James: Well, little miss sweetness, lightness of being, she's come into the sanctuary, and she's looking for her long, lost love -- "lost" being the operative word.
Ed: The church has always been a haven for lost souls. Don't be so quick to pull the plug on this show.
Ed: See what I mean? The cavalry has arrived.

Ricky: Let me get this straight. What you're trying to say is that what happened last night, actually all of last night, won't happen again? As in never again?
Karen: That's right.
Ricky: Wait. It seems to me that I wasn't the only one enjoying myself. Karen, did I do something wrong?
Karen: No, no, you did everything right. The last place I expected to end up with you last night was in this bed.
Ricky: Well, maybe that's what you might have thought before, but now? After all the votes are in?
Karen: You know, whatever this thing is between the two of us, it's not going anywhere, right?
Ricky: No, I'm not sure about that. In fact, the only thing strange is the way you're acting this morning.
Karen: It's not just about this morning, Ricky, or last night. This past year has been nothing but turmoil for me. I just need to take a break. I need to concentrate on my job and try to make some order out of this mess my life has turned into.
Ricky: Well, fine. Then maybe you need a fresh start. Make a new life for yourself.
Karen: No, I'm not ready to throw in the towel on my old life. And you need to get on with your life, too.
Ricky: Well, I kind of thought that that's what I was doing here.
Karen: Not with me. That's not where you want to start making a new start.
Ricky: Do I even get a vote in this?
Karen: Look, you just got a new job. You need to focus on that. You need to start going out there, having some fun, meeting girls, going to clubs, salsa dancing --
Ricky: Yeah, yeah, yeah. You know what? You're right, Karen. Because, I mean, look at me. I'm a young, healthy Latin American stud, all right? I should be going out there and getting with 18-year-old babes. I mean, why am I wasting my time with an old workaholic doctor with a medical bag full of problems? And you know what? You're not even a very good dancer.
Karen: Come on. Now you're talking crazy.
Ricky: That's what I've been trying to tell you.
Frank: Mom, what are you doing here?
Mary: Well, I work here, honey -- for the past 25 years.
Frank: I meant I didn't know you were working today.
Mary: Oh, Audrey called and asked if I'd take on an extra shift. Actually, I'm surprised to see you here. I thought you might have taken up my suggestion to get out of town for a few days and visit your brother and Gaby.
Frank: Wasn't the right time.
Mary: So you're here to see Gail?
Frank: No, I haven't called her yet.
Mary: Well, do you want me to call and see if she has time today?
Frank: Mom, I'm fine. If I see any shrink at all, it's going to be Kevin, ok?
Mary: So if you can't personally see Kevin, you broke in his office and stole his files?
James: Now, this can't be happening.
Ed: It looks like we're going to be here for a while, so why don't we make ourselves comfortable, hmm?
Rafe: I'm really messed up, and I don't know what brought me here to this church, but somehow I feel like I belong here. Maybe it's -- maybe it's someplace I can find some answers.
Minister: You came to the right place. Sometimes it helps to just talk about a problem.
Alison: Well, it's about a lot of things, really. But mostly it's about the man that I love. You know, he's a really good guy, sort of like an angel. But he's gone because of his job.
Minister: Have you considered joining him?
Alison: Yeah, I did. We both did, actually, but the timing, it just didn't quite work.
Minister: And you miss him.
Alison: So much it hurts. You know, we were so in love, but now that he's gone I almost feel like he's sort of haunting me.
Minister: Haunting you?
Alison: Sometimes I reach out my hand, and I can almost feel his hand intertwined in mine like --
Rafe: An unbreakable vine. That's what it feels like. I don't even know who it is, but it feels like someone is holding my hand.
Rafe: Hey. Hi. I don't want you to think I'm crazy.
Man: You don't have to explain yourself to me. The reverend's the one who hears anything of a confessional nature. He's in the front talking to a very pretty young lady.
Rafe: No, no, no, that's ok. I don't think he can help me with the problems I'm having.
Man: Must be about a girl. It's always a girl. You know, that's the way it's been with me my whole life.
Rafe: You know what? It's not. It's not a girl. Actually, I can't remember the last 10 years of my life.
Man: I'd sure like to forget the last 10 years of my life.
Rafe: You know, there's this girl -- this girl Livvie? And she remembers everything. She knows everything about me, so she's helping me remember.
Man: Sounds good.
Rafe: Yeah, and she's kind and caring. She's beautiful.
Man: So, what's the problem?
Rafe: Well, we're supposed to be in love, and I don't know if that's how I feel. Maybe I will in time, you know? But right now I look at her, and I just -- I don't feel anything.
Minister: Tell me what you feel.
Alison: Sometimes I wish I didn't feel anything, just because it hurts so much.
Minister: Love is a tremendously powerful emotion.
Alison: Yes, it's very powerful. So powerful that sometimes I feel like we're in the same room together.
Minister: Maybe at least until you can be together again, is there something else in your life you could focus on?
Alison: Well, yeah, there's a lot of things that I could focus on right now, but I just can't seem to get myself to care about anything except for Rafe, you know? I just love him so much, and I feel like his presence is still so strong for me that I just can't let go of him, and I'm really trying hard to find a way to do that, but I just can't, you know? Just please help me.
James: Ah -- young love. It gets me every time.
Mary: With everything going on with Kevin's disappearance, you break into his office and steal his records?
Frank: Mom, don't try and make me feel guilty about this. I have to find out what is happening to me. I thought Kevin may have written something down after the sessions we had.
Mary: What if someone sees you with these files?
Frank: I don't care. I've got to find out what is going on inside my head. I know it's not just some stinking candle causing all this.
Mary: Did you find anything?
Frank: Well, Kevin thought it must be something from my childhood, something I can't remember -- something I don't want to remember.
Mary: Well, you do know that your father drank, and he was very abusive.
Frank: I know, but it had to be something more specific, something that really upset me.
Mary: Well, there was that time you ran away from home, and --
Frank: I don't remember that.
Mary: Well, you didn't get very far, but then when we brought you home --
Mary: Well, you wouldn't eat, and you stopped talking to me.
Frank: Wow. And you don't know why?
Mary: We couldn't figure it out. Well, do you think it was me? Do you think that I said something or did something?
Frank: No, Mom, you were a terrific mother.
Mary: Sometimes mothers, even good mothers, do something or say something without realizing it's hurtful to their --
Frank: No, that's not what's going on here. You were a great mom. You still are.
Mary: Thank you, dear. I hope so.
Frank: But I still have to find out what is going on, what's turning my life into a total disaster.
Karen: I know what you're trying to do here.
Ricky: I'm not exactly trying to keep it a secret, Karen.
Karen: You know, I'm trying to do what's best for both of us, and as much as you may think that you care about me as a person and you might want some kind of relationship with me --
Ricky: You know better, right?
Karen: I know that what you're feeling isn't coming from your heart.
Ricky: Then where the hell is it coming from? Do you have any idea how insulting that is?
Karen: I'm sorry. I just --
Ricky: What? What? Are we friends?
Ricky: So it's not just about the sex, right? And we did make each other feel pretty good.
Karen: For the moment.
Ricky: For the moment? Karen, what's wrong with a moment? You could be swallowed by the springs in that hide-a-bed, and I'd never see you again.
Karen: Well, you know, I have to operate on the assumption that that's not going to happen, but in the meantime, while I'm living on the edge, I have a lot of stuff to figure out all by myself, and I have to do it alone, Ricky.
Ricky: Ok. Fine. I'll back off. But you've got to answer something for me first -- if you would have met me before you met Frank, would you be throwing me out of this place this fast?
Karen: If I met you before I met Frank, you might have still been in diapers.
Ricky: Ok, that's it. You know what? You win. I'm out of here.
Karen: Ricky, wait.
Alison: I just tried everything to get over him. I tried so hard that maybe that's how I got myself into some trouble.
Minister: What kind of trouble?
Alison: Well, after Rafe left, all I really wanted to do was I just really wanted to help people. And things, they got so messed up that, I don't know, people, I think, actually thought that I killed a friend of mine, which, of course, I didn't at all, but I just feel like my life has gotten so totally out of control.
Minister: Because of your beloved?
Rafe: Do you know what it feels like to have your life feel so, I don't know, out of control? You know, like maybe there's someone else out there.
Man: And it's not that Livvie girl?
Rafe: I don't know. You know, Livvie has been so great to me, and she deserves someone who really loves her.
Man: And you're not sure you're that person?
Ed: James, you have underestimated my son. He's been drawn here for a reason.
James: Don't get too excited. Remember, he has never met Alison, so no interfering.
Ed: Judging by the love in their hearts, it should be more than enough to bring them back together.
Mary: That's funny.
Woman's Voice: Shh. Don't wake the boys. Don't wake the boys. Don't wake the boys.
Karen: Come on, Ricky, I don't want you to go away mad.
Ricky: You just want me to go away because you're afraid of what might happen if I stay.
Karen: No, you're wrong. What happened last night was a one-time-only kind of deal. A great deal, but still a one-time-only. I just want us to be friends.
Ricky: Friends? If that isn't the biggest kiss-off that I've ever heard.
Karen: Come on, give it a shot, ok? I promise it'll get easier between us.
Ricky: It's kind of hard to stop there.
Karen: Yeah, I know it is. Come on, get out of here. Go.
Karen: That's it. Never again.
Frank's Voice: Hey, Karen, it's me. I just want to let you know I'm out of jail, and I'm really trying to -- I'm really trying, ok? I love you.
Karen: No. I'm not going to let Frank get to me, neither.
Minister: I hope you found solace here.
Rafe: Thanks. You've been great just listening.
Man: No problem. Have you figured out what you're going to do yet?
Rafe: Well, I figure I'll give Livvie and me a try. I mean, I'll try to make it work the best I can. She needs me right now, and I should be there for her. You know, I figure it can't hurt, right? Since your church is named for the saint of lost causes.
Rafe: Oh, boy. That's why I'm here. I hope this isn't a lost cause.
Alison: Thank you so much for taking all the time to talk with me.
Minister: I just hope I helped.
Alison: Yeah, you really did. I know that I need to focus on other things in my life now. Thank you.
Alison: If I could just stop feeling like Rafe is so close to me.
James: Who says they don't make them like they used to? What a beautiful ending.
Ed: It's far from over, Jimmy Boy.
James: Eddie baby, Rafe's soul is going to be mine, as is yours.
>> On the next "Port Charles" --
Livvie: Well, you did what you came here to do, Livvie, and that is the end of Alison and Rafe for good.
Kate: So, why did he leave?
Alison: He's an angel. They made him go back. You know --
