Karen: Well, that was the longest shift of my life.

Ricky: Paging Dr. Wexler.

Karen: Ricky.

Ricky: Dr. V.I.P., Dr. Sexy, Dr. The One and Only, Dr. Karen --

Karen: Ok, ok -- hey, hey, hey, I work here. Just take it down a notch, ok?

Ricky: Sorry. Not possible. You see, I plan on making a whole lot of noise.

Karen: What's this?

Ricky: That is your own ticket to see the hottest new drummer in Port Charles.

Karen: They asked you to play again?

Ricky: Drum roll, please.

Karen: Oh, my God, that's great!

Ricky: I know. I couldn't believe it when they actually called and, well -- ta-da! -- I'm in.

Karen: That is so awesome. Oh.

Ricky: And when I'm sitting there tonight and I'm looking down from that stage and I see you shaking --

Karen: Wait a minute -- tonight?

Ricky: Yeah, tonight, as in a couple of hours tonight.

Karen: I can't make it.

Ricky: Whoa. What do you mean, you can't?

Karen: Look, Ricky, I just --

Ricky: No, no, no, no. You won't. It's him, isn't it? It's Frank.

Lucy: Wait, you're -- you're speaking a little quickly. I don't understand urns and -- and vaults. I've -- no, listen, I've never done this before, especially not -- burying a husband. Could we please take care of this when I get there? Thank you. Fine.

Ian: Lucy?

Lucy: No, you know what, I've got to call the florist. I completely forgot. I think we should have flowers -- lots of flowers, boatloads of flowers everywhere, you know?

Ian: Lucy, talk to me.

Lucy: Doc would like that. Maybe white, you know, and -- just white and simple. And we should feed people. I should call the caterer. I really think a lot of food -- do people really eat --

Ian: Stop. Listen to me.

Lucy: I can't. I can't. Don't ask me to stop. I -- I can't. If I stop, I think I'll go completely insane.

Ian: I know.

Lucy: I just -- I think this whole thing has to be perfect for Doc. He deserves that much, don't you think?

Ian: It'll be ok.

Lucy: How? How could it possibly be ok? How could I have possibly been so wrong?

Ian: Shh.

Lucy: How could -- I can't believe it, that they found his ashes. It doesn't sink in, you know? Doesn't make any sense to me. I still feel him. How is that possible? How can he be gone when I -- I still sense him and I still feel him?

Kevin: Well, it's not perfect, but it's you. At least I can see you now. I can see you. Boy, every day it is getting harder. Oh, come on, Collins. Come on, Collins, keep it together. You are not losing your mind. At least not yet.

Kevin: God, I miss you so much, Lucy. So much.

Frank: Seems like every time I need a touchdown, I come back here. Well, I need another one tonight. Especially tonight.

Frank's Voice: We had something timeless, Karen. Magical. And it's still there. I feel it. That's why I'm going back to our special place tomorrow night. The bleachers at the high school -- you remember?

Frank: Well, nothing to do now but wait. I love you, Karen. I just want another chance to show you. You got to know how important tonight is to us, right? You have to come.

Ricky: Come on, Karen. Don't tell me you're actually taking Frank back.

Karen: We just talked.

Ricky: So you're thinking about it?

Karen: I don't know, ok?

Ricky: Yes, you do, Karen. Well, it's not like I don't get that you guys have a history. All right, but that's in the past, right? You know, like, "once upon a time?" When I was a kid, I believed in fairy tales, too, but I changed.

Karen: Ricky --

Ricky: Just like Frank has changed. And I see him for what he is right now.

Karen: Well, that doesn't mean that you know what I want.

Ricky: Oh, really?

Karen: Yeah.

Ricky: You know, the last time that candle was lit and the three of us were together -- you, me, and Frank -- who were you looking at?

Karen: Don't do this.

Ricky: Don't do what? Just tell the truth, all right? You were looking at me, wanting me, needing me. There's something here, Karen, if you'd just let it happen. Something that could be so --

Karen: Look, I can't just leave Frank tonight. I -- I --

Ricky: Tomorrow. Please, go and tie yourself in knots over him first thing in the morning.

Karen: Ricky, I --

Ricky: But celebrate with me tonight. Leave Frank and that whole mess behind. I know it's what you want to do.

Karen: But I can't just leave him.

Ricky: Just do it for me.

Karen: Ricky --

Ricky: Just be there. Ok? I know it's what you want to do. Listen, I got to run the sound check. I'll pick you up right after, all right?

Karen: Ricky, wait. I can't be in two places at once.

Lucy: Do you realize I never really -- not for once second really, really believed that Doc was gone?

Ian: Well, that's --

Lucy: You know what it is? Maybe I love him -- loved him so much that I kept hoping, you know? Maybe that's why I kept thinking because I wanted to see him so badly. And now I have to realize that I cannot protect everybody I love in my life, and all this time I thought the universe was supposed to do that, too -- help me, you know, protect all the people that I love. I was just a fool, though, wasn't I? And now I want to scream and cry and throw things or just feel something anymore. I don't even do that. I feel like I'm just -- I'm just this big, hollow nothingness. Just empty.

[Lucy sighs]

Ian: It's going to be all right. I promise you. Just -- just one day at a time, ok? I'm here for you.

Lucy: Ok, thanks.

[Knock on door]

Ian: It's open.

Man: It's what?

Ian: I said it's open. Come on in.

Man: Oh, sorry.

Ian: It's all right. I'll take that.

Man: Looks to me like it's a little more than "it's all right," huh, sonny? Warms the cockles to see young kids in love.

Ian: Don't --

Lucy: What? What did you just say?

Ian: Lucy, it's all right.

Lucy: You know, I just lost my husband, so I'm not quite sure what you're talking about here, ok? And I certainly don't want any stupid package from anybody, ok?

Ian: Our friend's leaving.

Lucy: So why don't you take it with you? Take the package and go! I don't want it!

Ian: Ok --

Man: I just --

Lucy: Thanks for nothing. Thanks for --

Ian: Lucy --

Lucy: Who would send me anything? I don't want a package at this point!

Ian: Lucy, it's from Kevin.

Frank: Come on, Karen. Don't forget what we've had.

Frank's Voice: For the dance afterward --

Karen's Voice: The dance?

Frank's Voice: I am taking the prettiest girl in Port Charles, who has just been crowned prom queen.

Karen's Voice: Prom queen? Me?

Frank's Voice: Yeah. After the dance, you and your crown and me and my cool jacket will drive up to make-out point.

Karen's Voice: You're pretty sure of yourself, Scanlon.

Frank's Voice: But I am not sure about this -- if this -- this amazing woman who's in my arms, lights up my life, makes me feel like a prince will agree to go steady with me. So what do you say, Wexler? You want to be my girl?

Karen's Voice: Yes, I -- I do. I -- I am.

Frank: My girl. You were the answer to everything, the best part of my life.

Frank: Doesn't look like she's the answer to anything anymore, Scanlon. She's not coming. Why would she when she doesn't want you? Not tonight, not anymore.

Karen's Voice: Frank, it's ok. I understand why you're feeling like this.

Frank: Oh, God. No. No, not again.

[Footsteps]

Frank: What?

Karen: It's me, Frank.

Kevin: Lucy, can you hear me? Please?

Kevin: Because sitting here alone is not helping my frame of mind. It isn't helping at all. Oh, what the hell? A 1991 chardonnay. Helps a little. You know what, Lucy? You'd really like it here. I mean, I have to tell you, this is your kind of universe. All you have to do is believe, and anything you want can be yours. Every year, every month, every day. Oh, my God, Lucy, it's your birthday. Well, I wonder if you got that gift I ordered for you. If you did, I just hope it didn't scare you, getting a gift out of the blue from your dead husband. I wonder what you said when you opened it.

Lucy: Is that really from Doc? He sent me -- what could he have sent me?

Ian: I don't know.

Lucy: It is. My -- my goodness. What could it be? I can't think of anything that -- there's a card.

Ian: What does it say?

Lucy: "Happy birthday to the most dazzling star in my universe. I love you. Doc." Oh, Doc.

Ian: Does it say anything else?

Lucy: Yeah. "P.S. -- Who knows when you'll get this? They say it takes months. But don't worry -- the universe, like my love, lasts forever."

Ian: Oh, Lucy.

Lucy: He must have sent it for my last birthday, you know, or before -- you know.

Ian: Do you want me to --

Lucy: Um -- no. I should open it. I mean, it's the last thing he -- he sent me, right? I should see what it is. I can't imagine what he possibly thought I could use. I don't need anything. Oh, my gosh. It's a -- like, a horoscope or a zodiac chart or something.

Ian: What does it mean? What is the --

Lucy: Oh, no. No. Would you look at this? It's just west of Orion.

Ian: A star?

Lucy: Yeah, a star. But look. Look at that.

Ian: A star with --

Lucy: My name on it. Doc sent me a star. He gave me a star for my birthday. He gave me a gift from the universe. It's like he was sending me a sign that I shouldn't stop believing. He gave me a star, a gift from the universe.

Ricky: Oh, Dr. Wexler, where are you? Come on, Karen, I got to go. I got to hit the stage in -- God, I -- hey, you, nurse.

Nurse: Are you talking to me?

Ricky: Dr. Wexler. Have you seen her?

Nurse: Her shift ended over an hour ago.

Ricky: What?

Nurse: Are you Ricky something?

Ricky: Yeah, Garza. I'm Ricky Garza.

Nurse: Dr. Wexler asked me to give this to you.

Ricky: Oh, thanks. Oh, man, come on, don't tell me -- big mistake, Karen. Big mistake.

Karen: Frank, are you ok?

Frank: Karen, tell me it's true. Tell me this means what I think it does.

Karen: You were right when you said we had something magical.

Frank: We have, Karen. Have.

Karen: Besides, nobody's ever gone back in time just to save me.

Frank: And I would do it again in a heartbeat. So?

Karen: So I guess what I'm saying is if you're better, really better --

Frank: Yes?

Karen: Yes, I'm willing to give it a try.

Frank: Oh, Karen.

Karen: Frank -- Frank, please.

Frank: Oh -- oh, God.

Karen: It's ok, it's ok. I just need to go slow, you know?

Frank: I am so sorry.

Karen: Just slow, ok?

Frank: I know I hurt you, but I will never, ever --

Karen: We just need some time, all right?

Frank: Yeah, right, you got it. I promise. We'll take it slow, but we will get back what we had, Karen. We will. I swear it. I'm just -- I'm just so glad you're here.

Karen: I know.

Frank: I need you, Karen. I love you so much.

Karen: I know.

Frank: Thank you.

Kevin: Lucy, I know how hard it is to keep your faith, but you have to. You have to believe. I have to get back, and in order for that to happen, you have to believe! But what if that's not enough? What if all the belief and love in the world isn't enough and I still can't get back?

Kevin: That means this is all I have? These? I can't spend an eternity just looking at these! No! Lucy? You have to believe in me! Lucy?

Lucy: Hey, Doc. It's me. I see my star -- right there, west of Orion.

Kevin: I don't get it. Where is that sketch? I didn't throw it that far. It has to be here somewhere. It has to be. Where the hell is it? Lucy?

Lucy: Doc?

Kevin: Believe in us. Believe.

Lucy: Doc, you are out there, aren't you? Well, I'm wishing -- I'm wishing on my star. And I'm not wishing on that same old star I used to wish on when I was a girl, you know. This is different. This is my star, the star you gave me. The brightest star in the whole universe. And I'm wishing just to have you back, that I could see you. So could you just give me a sign? Any kind of sign.

Lucy: Ok. Ok, then.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Kate: I've asked the judge to allow us to change your plea.

Jack: We both know Alison couldn't have done this.

Jamal: Yeah.

Jack: But who wants her, more than anything, to pay for this?

Jamal: Livvie.

Livvie: I am giving you a choice. If you want out, go!
