Port Charles Transcript Monday 9/16/02

Provided by Suzanne

lucy: Oh, this -- this was a great day at the beach this summer. We went -- yeah, and the girls -- and doc -- I mean, we had so much fun. We played in the sand, and, you know, built sandcastles and stuff, and then we got hot, so we all ate snow cones.

Ian: Blue snow cones, by the looks of it.

Lucy: Yeah, you're right. That was such a perfect day. It was -- it was amazing. How was it that we were such a perfect family that day? How can we lose him now? You know, we lost him before and I'm not quite -- i'm not going to do this. Oh, you know what? I'm not doing this, ok? I'm sick of it. I'm sick of myself, and I'm tired of crying on your shoulder. I'm sorry.

Ian: Don't apologize. I've got another one all dry for you.

Lucy: No.

Ian: Ok.

Lucy: Thank you for being here and thank you for listening to all of this. I know you put up with me, and I tried to push you away, so thank you.

Ian: I understand, you know.

Lucy: I know that. Tell me something, though -- do you think I have a right to act like this, to fall apart like this when he's still alive? It's just -- he doesn't seem like he's still alive to me.

Ian: You have a right to feel the way you feel.

Lucy: Thanks. I've got to show you this one you haven't seen. It's the tree house he built. Look at this. He knows nothing about hammers.

Ian: Tree house.

Lucy: You know, I had to show him how to hold a level and everything. But the girls were so excited, and he wanted so badly to do it for them, so he did. So tell me something -- how is that man in that picture who was able to do that for his little girls and has such a big heart, how did he become this -- this ryan? He believes he's ryan, a man with no soul and no conscience.

Ian: I -- i don't know.

Lucy: He tried to strangle me. And if that avatar thing hadn't come along, he probably would have killed me. So why would that creature save me?

Karen: There we go. Let's take a look. Perfect. I think frank's going to love that i moved some of his stuff in. Make him feel more at home. Albeit a very cramped home with both of us here, but it'll just be temporary till things get back to normal. It'll be worth it. I know it will. Ok.

Karen: Come on, frank. Where are you? You should have been here by now.

Rafe: Let me know if you see her, ok? Yeah, ok.

Alison's voice: When you love someone that much with all of your heart and soul, it gives you faith to hold on. Maybe you should wait for that person no matter how long it takes.

Rafe: Come on. Where is she? What could possibly have stopped her from coming to meet me? Oh, my god -- the avatar.

Alison: The lord is my shepherd, i shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures and he leads me beside the still water, and he restores my soul.

Avatar: I'm sorry.

Alison: Though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for you are with me. Your rod and staff, they comfort me. Lord, I'm -- i'm praying for the soul of the man that is trapped inside this avatar, and I pray -- I pray for the child that livvie's carrying, because he or she did not ask to be brought into this. I pray that you will protect he or she always. And most of all, i pray for rafe's soul. I'm sorry, i just couldn't do it. I couldn't save his soul. Please forgive me, but i know you can. I pray that you will have mercy on him. I pray, lord, that you will have mercy on his soul.

chris: Oh, officer. What a surprise.

Doree: Yeah, you know what's a surprise? We haven't heard from your friend lancelot the creep in a while.

Chris: So?

Doree: So i was thinking -- hoping -- maybe he got smart and skipped town.

Chris: He's just taking a little break, that's all. It's no big deal.

Doree: A break? From being superhero?

Chris: Sure, why not? Thanks. I'd say he deserves it, wouldn't you?

Doree: Ok, just tell me -- is he still here in port charles?

Chris: No, he's at myrtle beach. He has a little time-share there. It's nothing fancy, but it's a nice place to relax.

Doree: All right. You know, I once thought of you as a catch -- a brillia doctor, incredible lover.

Chris: Thank you. You're not so bad yourself.

Doree: But you're wasting it all away. I mean, why would you want to be sidekicks with this want-to-be masked avenger?

Chris: Sorry to disappoint you.

Doree: Don't you ever look in the mirror and wonder why a guy with so much going for him would settle for that? For being the sidekick? The second banana? The lackey, sycophant yes-man?

Chris: You actually just used "sycophant" in a sentence.

Doree: Face it, chris. If he's superman, you're jimmy olsen.

[Chris sighs]

doree: Not a pretty picture, is it?

[Knock on door]

karen: I'm coming. Rafe, what are you doing?

Rafe: Karen, i need to know. Have you seen him? Have you heard from him? Huh?

Karen: Who?

Rafe: Your friend, the avatar.

Karen: No, not recently. Why?

Rafe: I'm really worried about alison. She was supposed to meet me in the park. She swore she'd be there, but she never showed up.

Karen: And you're thinking --

rafe: The avatar's got her. I'm afraid of what he'll do.

Karen: He would never do anything to hurt alison. I'm sure of that.

Alison: If you're going to kill me, then just do it.

Frank: You're a good person. You are.

Karen: I'm telling you, rafe, you have nothing to worry about.

Rafe: How can you say that? He already took alison once just to show me that he's the one in control.

Karen: And he did nothing to her. So why do you think he would do something to her now or that he even has her at all?

Rafe: I told you, she was supposed to meet me.

Karen: Well, maybe she got held up.

Rafe: No, no. This was too important. Besides, she would have called.

Karen: Did you try calling her?

Rafe: Yeah, of course i called her! I called her cell, the house. I even called the recovery room. No one's seen or heard from her, ok?

Karen: Well, I don't know what to tell you, rafe.

Rafe: If you're covering for this guy, now would be a good time to stop. Karen, please. You can't honestly tell me that you still believe this guy is good.

Karen: He has a lot of good in him, a lot of good, and he would never in a million years do anything to hurt an innocent person. That i believe in with everything i am.

Rafe: Ok. I'm going to hope to god you're right.

Frank: I will spare you.

Alison: Thank you so much. I knew you couldn't do it. I knew it.

Frank: Oh, yes, i could, and i will unless you do exactly as i say.

Alison: Ok, I will. I'll do anything you want me to do.

Frank: You must leave port charles.

Alison: Leave port charles?

Frank: Leave and never come back. If you do, I'll have no choice but to kill you.

Alison: I promise I won't come back. I'll leave right away.

Frank: Free.

Ian: Well, for once, I'm glad that this thing was here, although i can't figure out how or why.

Lucy: I don't care. I don't care how or why at this point. It doesn't matter to me. What matters is that thing, whatever it is, it saved me, and it saved me from my husband. It doesn't make any sense. I don't understand why this is happening, and right now, at this point, i don't think i can make sense of anything ever again.

Ian: Lucy, I --

lucy: No, you know what's keeping me together right now are those girls. If i didn't have christina and serena, I think I would be tied up in that bed next to kevin in that mental ward.

Ian: But you will keep it together because you're very strong.

Lucy: Oh -- I am sick of that. I'm sick of it. I'm sick of being strong. I'm so tired of being strong. I've been strong through everything. I've tried to be strong through losing christina and -- rafe and alison, and I lost my husband once before. How am i supposed to keep strong losing him again? What -- what -- is this so hard to have just a simple, safe, normal life? Why can't I ask for that? Just simple.

Ian: You can ask for it, and you will have it. Just don't give up hope now.

Lucy: I don't want to. I want to keep hope. I want to believe that kevin's going to come back to me and he's going to be the man i fell in love with. But how long do I keep on hoping for -- how long am i supposed to hang on for that?

Ian: He's very ill, you know.

Lucy: Yeah, I know. It's probably my fault. I probably did this to him.

Ian: No, look, now, don't do this. You know that's not true.

Lucy: No, it is true. I used my tarot card, I used my crystals, i used all this stupid mumbo-jumbo because i thought I was trying to help people and do good for people. Instead, i probably opened the door to evil and let all this befall of us. It's probably my fault.

Ian: Ok, fine, fine. It's your fault. You brought this on yourself. You're the reason for all of this. How's that? Make you feel better?

Chris: You can make fun of me all you like, but I stand to profit big time if our shrouded friend continues his work -- when he continues his work.

Doree: Right. You're going to be this big real estate tycoon when port charles is declared the safest city in america.

Chris: If not the world, yes. That's the plan. It's a damn good one, if i do say so my damn self.

Doree: Why?

Chris: Why what?

Doree: You have all the money you'll ever need. What else could you possible want?

Chris: More.

Doree: I don't even know why i try. In fact, i don't even know why i still care. You're better than this, chris. Deep down inside, I know you are. It's just too bad that you can't see it.

Chris: Frank?

Frank: Remember me?

Chris: Hey. Where have you been? I mean, I've been working overtime doing damage control for lancelot on this attack of the garza kid. And now I got it from karen, get me some song and dance about you're retiring. Like that's going to happen.

Frank: It already has.

Chris: You're joking?

Frank: Lancelot is over, chris. I want you to call it all off.

Chris: Frank, what are you talking about?

Frank: No more P.R., No more interviews, no more hype. You got got that? It's finished.

Chris: No, no, I don't got that, frank. We've got a great thing going here. Hey, you've got a great thing going here. I mean, why would you throw that away now? It's crazy. And the town needs you. There's work to be done. Now, you can't just turn your back on all the people.

Frank: Watch me.

Chris: Frank, look --

frank: No, you look. I have made up my mind, and if you're as smart as you keep saying you are, you will accept that.

Chris: Well, of course i accept it. I mean, if that's what you really want.

Frank: Don't even think about opening your big mouth, because if i hear one person knows who I am --

chris: No, I would never do that, I wouldn't.

Frank: Good.

Chris: I do have to ask you, though, is this the spirit talking or this is frank? Because the spirit would never give up. It wouldn't just end it like this.

Frank: You don't listen real good, do you?

Chris: I was just asking.

Frank: I am warning you, ramsey. If my last act of justice is mopping the floor with you, I would love that. So leave it and me the hell alone. Is that clear?

Chris: Crystal.

Bartender: Rafe. Got something for you. A note from alison barrington.

Avatar's voice: You must leave port charles.

Alison's voice: Leave?

Avatar's voice: Leave and never come back. If you do, I will have no choice but to kill you.

Alison's voice: I won't give up on you, rafe.

Alison: It's because i love you. I've always loved you, and i -- I will always love you. And I need you to feel that, no matter what. The hell i'm going to run away. Rafe, I made a promise to you and i swear to god I'm going to keep it.

Ian: Look at me. You're an amazing woman. You can do anything you set your mind on, anything. And you're going to get through this the way you have through everything else. Oh, and the good news is you don't have to do it alone because I'm here, I'm not going anywhere.

Lucy: You know, you're very pushy. But thank you. Thank you for pushing me and thank you for putting up with all my ranting and my hysterics.

Ian: You did the same for me not too long ago, if i remember.

Lucy: Yeah. Can you do one more thing for me?

Ian: Name it.

Lucy: I need you to leave. I've -- I got to be alone for a while.

Ian: No, I'd rather stay.

Lucy: No -- really. I'm positive. I need you to leave because I just -- I got to think some of these things through.

Ian: All right, i'll go. One thing.

Lucy: What?

Ian: Have dinner with me tonight.

Lucy: Oh. I'm not hungry.

Ian: No? Well, then i'm not going.

Lucy: Oh, no. No, you are. You're -- look at you. You need to go. Up. I'm going to have dinner with you. I'll eat something.

Ian: Perfect. I'll call you.

Lucy: Ok -- do i have to dress or anything? Ok.

Ian: Hey, it's ian. Listen, I need you to do me a favor. Yeah, I know. Have dinner with me tonight. Just a couple of hours. Good.

Karen: Frank. I'm so glad you're home.

Frank: Hey, i shod be late more often.

Karen: You are late. What happened? Is everything ok?

Frank: Everything's fine. I just had to take a little detour.

Karen: Detour?

Frank: Yeah. No big deal.

Karen: Frank, were you with alison barrington?

Frank: What? Why would you think that i was --

karen: Rafe came by. He couldn't find alison. They were supposed to meet, and he thought the avatar -- of course I told him it couldn't have been that. He'd never hurt an innocent person.

Frank: You were right. I wouldn't.

Karen: Ok, good. I knew that. You know what? I knew it.

Frank: Hey, what's this? You brought my stuff over.

Karen: Yeah, just a few things. I just wanted you to feel more comfortable, make it seem more like home.

Frank: Any place with you feels like home.

Frank: It's going to be ok now, karen. I promise.

Frank's voice: Lancelot is over, ramsey. I want you to call it all off.

Chris' voice: What are you talking about?

Frank's voice: No more P.R., No more interviews, no more hype. You got that? It's finished.

Chris: Maybe finished for you, frank, but not for me. Not by a long shot.

Rafe's voice: "My darling rafe, by the time you read this, I'll be gone. I know it seems sudden, but please understand that i've given this a lot of thought, especially in these past weeks, knowing the problems i've caused you and livvie. I care about you too much to interfere any more with you and your family. Besides, i realized in the end that nothing, including myself, could ever have come between you and your wife. It's her you love now, who, really, you've always loved. And it's time for me to accept that, to bow out and give up the fight. Please don't try and find me. You never will. Just go and be happy -- happy in a way that -- happy in a way you and i never could have been. Love, alison."

Alison: Ow! Ow. Oh. Oh. Oh, my god. Oh, it's a trap. I can't move.

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

>> On the next "port charles" --

kate: You told her about brennan?

Ian: This is not going exactly the way I hoped.

Rafe: I'm not going to follow you anymore. I am going to follow my instincts. Livvie, you need to tell me now -- what did you do to alison?
