Port Charles Transcript Monday 8/12/02

Provided by Suzanne

alison: Wait. Wait.

Jack: What, are you sure we should -- should --

alison: No, I'm not sure of anything.

Ian: Not waking you, am i?

Rafe: I'll know when the avatar gets here.

Ian: If he gets here.

Rafe: Know what? I think it got our message. You called it a fraud and a coward. You pretty much humiliated it publicly.

Ian: Maybe he doesn't have a television set.

Rafe: Ian, relax. I promise you, he won't be able to resist punishing our impudence. He'll show up.

Ian: And that's the good news, is it?

Rafe: Yeah, well, he has to, because if he doesn't, then we won't be able to appeal to its humanity, and that's the only chance we have.

Ian: Is any humanity left?

[Rustling]

ian: Hey! Whoa!

Rafe: What's going on here?

Andy: That was quite a speech you made, dr. Thornhart.

Doree: It would've been nice if you could've let us know beforehand so we could be prepared.

Ian: Prepared for what?

Andy: You called lancelot out.

Doree: And we're going to wrap him up, so thank you, gentlemen, you can leave now. We'll take over from here.

Avatar: "Trust." Strange word coming from you.

Livvie: You have to.

Livvie: We both need each other too much.

Livvie: You have to listen to me, frank. Please, please don't go looking for rafe and ian, please.

Avatar: They tried to discredit me. They want to diminish what i've done.

Livvie: Yes, but it's a trap.

Avatar: Get out of my way.

Livvie: No! No, I won't let you ruin everything.

Avatar: Do not ever presume to issue orders to me.

Livvie: I'm sorry, but we have to be smart about this. We both have too much to lose. You have to protect your identity and I need to --

avatar: Prevent your husband from knowing he's a fool? That this child he wants so much is mine?

Livvie: No. No, that -- that is not it. That is not the deal we made. Don't let their lies get to you! Don't let them ruin everything that you've done here, all the good that you've done. You know who you are. You don't have to prove anything to anyone! You're the avatar!

Avatar: Priorities change, livvie. I will not be shamed. They are attempting to diminish everything i have done, and they will be punished.

Livvie: Is this frank scanlon i'm talking to or the avatar?

Avatar: They are one and the same. The frank you knew is gone forever.

alison: Wait. Wait. We need to stop this.

Jack: Yeah. Yeah.

Alison: Uh --

jack: Right. Um -- should we talk about this?

Alison: No. No, I don't -- i don't think so.

Jack: Alison, we can't just ignore what's going on here.

[Key turns in lock]

alison: I know, but -- hi.

Jack: Hey.

Jamal: What's up?

Alison: Hi.

Jamal: Come at a bad time?

Jack: Oh, no. What's up?

Jamal: What's up?

Jack: Hey.

Alison: Yeah.

Jamal: Oh, you forgot? I'm moving in tonight.

Jack: Oh.

Jamal: I'm moving in.

Jack: No, no, no, no, no, I didn't forget. I just kind of got caught up doing some stuff.

Alison: Yeah.

Jamal: Yeah, right.

Jack: Around the house.

Jamal: Right.

Jack: Yeah.

Alison: Do you need some more help carrying some of that stuff in?

Jamal: No, no, no, thanks. I'm just going to put it in the room and then i'll go back for another trip.

Jack: Ok. Hey, let me know if I can help you out at all.

Alison: Yeah.

Jamal: Yeah, sure. Ahem.

Jack: All right. This will be fun, man. Looking forward to you moving in.

Jamal: Yeah.

Alison: Um -- just answer me one question -- what just happened there?

Jack: I don't know. But I can tell you this -- if jamal hadn't walked in when he did, I wouldn't have stopped.

Rafe: You all have to get out of here now, please.

Andy: Yeah, right, like that's going to happen. Yeah, you know what, i'll send home the swat unit so you two superheroes can handle everything on your own.

Ian: You don't know what you're dealing with here.

Doree: Oh, and you do? Right, doctor, because they teach you all about lancelot in med school, right?

Rafe: Hey, you know what, swat teams are not going to stop him, ok?

Doree: Have you two been smoking something out here in the woods?

Andy: All right, look, fellas, we want to catch this guy as much as you do, maybe more. In fact, we're willing to overlook that you're impeding our investigation.

Ian: Well, you're not going to catch him.

Rafe: Yeah, and you know what, even if you did --

andy: What? What are you trying to tell me, that he's from outer space or something?

Doree: Right -- "put down your weapons, earthlings."

Ian: Ok.

Doree: Guess again.

Ian: Under normal circumstances, i think the police in this town are very competent. This is not normal, this is not a normal man, and he will not show up if the police is around.

Andy: Well, he won't know we're around.

Doree: Until it's too late.

Ian: No, he'll know.

Rafe: You're going to have to trust us on this. Leave us alone, please? Please?

Andy: Sorry, guys. You leave, we stay. All right, let's get into positions. Stay on channel seven. Let's go.

Rafe: He'll never show.

Livvie: I can deal with the fact that spirit has moved you to great things, but I am still on your side, frank.

Avatar: Are you?

Livvie: Of course. I've protected you, and I will continue to.

Avatar: What would you have me do, livvie? How would you handle this affront?

Livvie: Well, if i were you, I would probably leave port charles.

Avatar: Would you really?

Livvie: Yeah, I mean, I can only imagine how hard this has been for you. I mean, you've done so much good here. You pretty much single-handedly chased evil out of town, and I personally never thought this day would come. But maybe your work is done here. Maybe it's time to move on.

Avatar: I see. And that would accomplish what, exactly?

Livvie: Rafe knows what you are. He'll fight you.

Avatar: I've had challenges before. What else?

Livvie: Well --

avatar: Why don't I tell you why you so desperately want me to leave? Not because my work here is finished, which I can assure you it isn't, but because it would be convenient for you. You got what you wanted from me and now you're trying to get rid of me.

Livvie: No, that is not true!

Avatar: Stop trying to handle me, livvie. Do you think i don't know who you are? You're exactly what I've been fighting here. You are evil incarnate. It's rotting inside you like a cancer. The only reason you continue to exist is because you can destroy my identity. Don't push your advantage. You are not on my side, livvie. There is only one side when it comes to you -- your side.

Alison: What do you mean, you wouldn't have stopped it?

Jack: Alison, what's not to understand? I mean --

alison: Plenty. Plenty.

Jack: Ok, whoa. I mean, correct me if I'm wrong, but we did share a pretty intimate moment, didn't we?

Alison: Yeah, yeah, we did, and I take full responsibiliorhat.

Jack: Responsibility? What do you mean, responsibility? Alison, we didn't commit a crime, we kissed.

Alison: I know --

jack: And we enjoyed it. And if jamal hadn't walked in when he did, I don't think you would've stopped, either.

Alison: Well, that's not the point.

Jack: Ok, why are you getting so bothered by this?

Alison: Because, it just -- jack, it really shouldn't have happened.

Jack: Why?

Alison: Because it's -- because it's weird.

Jack: Weird?

Alison: Yeah.

Jack: And that means it didn't feel good?

Alison: No, it -- it did, but -- come on, i don't have to explain this to you. Jamal's your best friend, livvie was my best friend. And besides all of that, above all of that, i am in love with rafe.

Jack: Right --

alison: Yeah --

jack: Who's married to my ex and your former best friend.

Alison: I know that.

Jack: So --

alison: So if you wouldn't have stopped it, I definitely would have.

Jack: So what do we do now?

Alison: Um, I think that we should probably just pretend like that didn't happen.

Jack: Ok. Well, you can do that, but I can't because I don't want to.

Alison: Well, maybe we should just not see each other anymore then.

Jack: Alison, come on, this is ridiculous.

Alison: No, jack, this --

jack: No, it is.

Alison: No, this is too weird. I think that maybe i should just go.

Jack: What? Alison -- stop, all right? Damn it.

Ian: I can't believe it. Went on television, bated this avatar thing, and it's all a complete waste of time.

Rafe: All right, come on, swat team's sticking around here for nothing. We might as well go.

Ian: Yeah.

Mary: Oh, hi.

Colleen: Hey. We saw you on television tonight, ian.

Ian: Yeah, apparently a lot of people did.

Mary: I do have a soft spot in my heart for lancelot. After all, he did save me in the park from those awful boys. But what you said tonight made a lot of sense. We don't know who this guy really is and how far he's going to take this in the name of justice.

Ian: Ok. Thank you.

Colleen: I got to get back, ok?

Mary: Me, too.

Ian: Well. Maybe this night wasn't a complete bust, after all.

Rafe: The avatar thrives on adoration. So if we can just get the whole town to go against him, we can drive him out of here.

Livvie: You have me all figured out, don't you, frank?

Avatar: It isn't difficult, livvie. Your past speaks for itself.

Livvie: No, I am not evil. I'm just desperate. I love my husband, and getting pregnant was the only way i could hold on to him and maybe -- just maybe -- get him to love me back. You still have the capacity to love, don't you, frank? Or has the avatar driven that out of you, too? What, this is funny to you?

Avatar: No, livvie, it's pathetic. You're actually trying to make me feel sorry for you. "I love my husband." You've been tricking the poor sap ever since he came back to town. And our little secret is the biggest trick of all, isn't it? You don't know any more about love than I do. Perhaps less. Now, alison and rafe -- that's true love.

Livvie: No, he's over her. He doesn't even remember she even ever existed.

Avatar: Thanks to you. But somehow he still seems drawn to the girl, doesn't he, almost like it's his destiny.

Livvie: Why are you being so cruel to me?

Avatar: Because you're a liar, livvie. You lie to everyone, including yourself. The only thing rafe feels for you is obligation. He loves alison. Always has, always will.

Livvie: You bastard. You sick, twisted bastard.

Livvie: My baby moved. Oh, my god! How did you -- how did you do that? How did you make my baby move?

Avatar: Our baby. Try and remember, livvie, I'm the one pulling the strings now. I'm the one making all the moves. Don't cross me. And stay out of my dealings with ian and rafe. I don't need your cooperation or approval. They are going to learn what it means to disrespect me. They have no idea what i am capable of, but they will. As will everyone in port charles. A

jack: Hey, did i tell you, there's some more space in the garage for anything you don't want to unpack.

Jamal: Yeah, yeah, you mentioned that -- three times, actually. Thanks.

Jack: Right, right. You know, I just want to make sure you're taken care of. Is there anything else that i might've missed?

Jamal: Yeah, you know what, there is. Tell me something -- why don't you tell me about you and alison?

Jack: Oh, uh -- nothing really to talk about, you know?

Jamal: Come on, jack, look at me. I mean, what do you think, I'm an idiot or something? Come on, i got eyes, dude.

Jack: Yeah, you know what? Let's just drop it, all right?

Jamal: No, actually, let's not because that's a bad idea.

Jack: Jamal, just let it go.

Jamal: Look, I can't do that.

Jack: Oh. I see what this is about. You're still hung up on her, aren't you?

Jamal: No, no, I'm not. You're wrong again, ok? But I'm not going to sit up here and lie to you, ok? It was kind of weird walking in and seeing you two scramble around and pretend like you didn't have anything to hide.

Jack: Yeah, well, nothing happened.

Jamal: Nothing happened?

Jack: Nothing happened.

Jamal: Well, alison, she's -- she's still kind of hung up on rafe, anyway.

Jack: Yeah, well, she won't be like that forever.

Jamal: Maybe she won't be. Maybe she will be, though. And if she is, where does that leave you? Thought about that? I'm just trying to save you some heartache, that's all.

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, and I really appreciate it. I do. But if i wanted the advice, well, I'd ask for it.

Jamal: Well, all right. Suit yourself. Well, then i guess there's no worries, huh?

Jack: No. Cheers.

Jamal: Cheers. Don't say I didn't warn you, though.

Colleen: Ahem.

Ian: What's that?

Colleen: It's the least i could do. It's from that brazilian coffee guy down in the park.

Ian: I don't get it.

Colleen: Well, it took a lot of guts to go on tv the way that you did. You really think lancelot could be a problem?

Ian: Yeah, I do.

Colleen: Well, then i think you're absolutely right, I think we owe it to ourselves to find out more about him.

Ian: At the very least.

Colleen: Yeah, and that's why you got coffee. Thanks for opening my eyes.

Ian: Thank you.

Colleen: Oh -- I almost forgot. On my way back from my break, I saw danny and his nanny in the park. He's getting so big.

Ian: Should've been home by now.

Livvie: Rafe. God, i am so glad you're home. I was so worried about you.

Rafe: It's ok, i'm fine, I'm fine.

Livvie: Uh -- did you -- did you run into the avatar in the park?

Rafe: No.

Livvie: No? Look, I know you're not going to be happy to hear this, but I am actually really relieved.

Rafe: Because you're worried about me?

Livvie: Do you know how i spent this whole night? Thinking about how much I just wanted to be in your arms, because I love you so much, rafe. I almost make myself sick, imagining what life would be like if something ever happened to you.

Avatar's voice: The only thing rafe feels for you is obligation. He loves alison. Always has, always will.

Livvie: Honey, listen to me -- it's been so long. Please, baby. Please, you need to make love to me.

Rafe: No, no, no, I mean, you just got out of the hospital. It's too soon.

Livvie: No, no, it's not. I'm fine, sweetheart. I am better than fine.

Rafe: Your fall --

livvie: Please, we need to be together. Please?

Rafe: Your fall wasn't that long ago. I'd feel better if we just waited a little while longer, ok?

Rafe: Hey, you know what? Look, let me hold you. Come here. See, this is nice, right?

Livvie: Yeah. It's great.

Rafe: It's going to be ok, livvie.

Livvie: Yeah, I know.

Rafe: No, we didn't catch the avatar tonight, but we will. I have a feeling we'll find out who he really is soon.

[Music plays]

alison: Why shouldn't I kiss jack? I mean, really, why shouldn't I? We've been friends forever. And we practically died for one another. Why shouldn't I give it a chance? I'll tell you why, alison -- it's because you can't stop thinking about rafe, even thought that is a very hopeless situation. It'd really be easy if i could just talk to maybe my best friend right now. However, my best friend is jack, so that doesn't really work. Carmen. Hi. Hi, daniel. Hi. What are you guys doing out so late?

Carmen: Oh, it's my fault. Dr. Thornhart doesn't have a lot of food at the house and i was hungry.

Alison: Oh.

Carmen: And it seemed like a good night for a walk.

Alison: Yeah, it is, a really good night. And daniel sure loves the stars. That's right. Hi!

Carmen: Oh, no.

Alison: What's wrong?

Carmen: I just remembered i was supposed to pick up a prescription for my father. Now it's too late. The drugstore's closed. I'm not supposed to be working this late, but dr. Thornhart asked me to stay on with danny.

Alison: Right. You know, there's a pharmacy at the hospital that stays open late if you want to go to that one.

[Daniel fusses]

carmen: I don't know. I really should be getting danny home soon.

Alison: Well, I can take him. He's no trouble at all. I'm sure ian wouldn't mind.

Carmen: You sure you want to do this?

Alison: Yeah. Yeah, that's fine.

Carmen: Ok, then here are the keys to the loft.

Alison: Ok.

Carmen: And I'll be right back as soon as I've picked up the prescription.

Alison: Ok. Thanks.

[Daniel vocalizes]

alison: Yeah. Must be nice to not have a care in the world. Look at the stars out there. Aren't they pretty? Yeah, they are pretty, huh?

Avatar: Hi, alison.

Alison: Hi. What's going on, frank? How are you? Look, daniel, it's your uncle.

Avatar: What are you two doing out here? Isn't it past danny's bedtime?

Alison: Yeah, it is, but we're just on our way back home.

Avatar: Do you have your car?

Alison: No, it's not that far, though. We're just going to walk.

Avatar: I don't know about that. With everything that's going on around here? Might not be a great idea. Why don't you let me give you a lift? I'm sure ian wouldn't want you two walking around here in the dark.

>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "port charles: Torn."

>> On the next "port charles" --

ian: Whoa.

Kate: What was that?

Ian: Oh, great. Elevator's stuck again. Happens all the time.

Alison: What do you want?

Avatar: I want you to do what you're told.
