Port Charles Transcript Thursday 10/17/02

By Amanda

Man: Oh, this looks like quite the party. Please don't tell me that i missed all the fun.

Marissa: Well, nice of you to finally show up. Now the man himself can hear the message I was just telling these bozos over here. Look, you know what? Whatever you think you need to talk to me about, you can stick it in your 12-string and smoke it.

Man: Shame on you. You've been misbehaving again. I can always tell. They've spent a lot of nights in bad hotels and long, bumpy bus rides. Sometimes they get downright mean.

Marissa: Look, Stephen, I don't understand why --

man: I hate to disappoint you, young lady. I'm not who you think I am.

Ricky: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a minute. You're not Stephen clay?

Man: No. I'm Joshua temple. I'm the manager of the Stephen Clay experience.

Jamal: Ok, hold up for a second. What's going on here? First, these three clowns or whatever show up, and now you show up. When do we get to meet the man himself?

Joshua: You don't.

Marissa: You mean, he's not coming here today at all?

Joshua: No, you misunderstand completely. Nobody gets to meet Stephen, not unless he considers it necessary, and at the moment, he doesn't. So, let's get down to business.

Livvie: Never believe a word karen says or frank, either. Because they are so wrong about you. I know you're still here. I know you're still with me.

Karen's voice: I'm afraid i have some bad news.

Livvie's voice: What is it?

Karen's voice: We haven't been able to detect a fetal heartbeat. I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but your baby didn't survive.

Livvie: No. No, that is not true. Not a word of it. They're just jealous, and they hate me. Look, I'd know, little one. I'd know if you were gone. I would never hurt you. I could never hurt you. I know you're still here -- strong and alive and very, very special. And we are going to come out of this on top -- you, me, and the only man that i've ever loved. And he'll love you, too. And he's going to see how special you are, and then he's going to make us whole again. Won't you, jack?

Jack: I'm going to have to go into town, tess.

Tess: No.

Jack: No, no, no, it's ok. Look, we can't live out here like this. You can still come with me if you want.

Tess: No --

jack: Ok, hey, it's ok. It's ok. I'm just going to go in and get a few supplies and get a battery for my cell phone, backup battery. I promise you, you won't even remember i was gone.

Tess: No. Jack, stay.

Alison: Did you kill my father?

Elizabeth: Of course not.

Alison: What did you find out?

Rafe: Your father died four months ago, and your mother here has been investigated as a possible murder suspect.

Elizabeth: Alison, his death was an accident. Anytime anyone goes overboard like -- everyone on the yacht was a suspect.

Rafe: Yeah, but not everyone stood to inherit a fortune when he died. Just you.

Elizabeth: You've been very busy, haven't you?

Rafe: Just looking after the woman I love.

Elizabeth: Were any charges filed?

Rafe: No, not yet. There wasn't enough evidence.

Alison: I can't even believe this.

Elizabeth: Believe what, alison? That i'm actually capable of murder?

Alison: How should i know what you're capable of? I don't even know you.

Elizabeth: Welllelet me fill you in here, alison. I lived with your father for over 20 years. I tolerated his cruelty, his affairs, his utter contempt for me. But I was very well compensated for that privilege. So if I wanted him dead, believe me, I had ample opportunity. So this is one chain you're not going to hang around my neck, sweetheart. I may be a lot of things, but I'm not a murderer.

Alison: No, mother, you're just a liar.

[Captioning made possible by abc, inc.]

Livvie: Jack never had a real family. Did you know that? Just one foster home after another. And he always used to say that when he had a chance, he was going to do things different. And that's how i know he's going to be such a wonderful father. He's going to love you. He's going to love both of us to make up for all the unhappiness. You'll see. Mama knows these things.

Jack: Now, look. Right over there. Do you see that big, bright thing -- the sun?

Tess: Sun.

Jack: Yeah, very good. Ok, when that sun gets all the way over here by these trees, i'll be back.

Tess: Long.

Jack: No. No, not long.

Jack: Tess --

tess: Stay.

Jack: You sure don't make it easy to leave.

Elizabeth: You won't even give me the benefit of the doubt?

Alison: Why should i believe anything that comes out of your lying mouth?

Elizabeth: Well, then believe what you want, alison. I have reports. I have police reports, i have witness statements, all detailing your father's death. Two different countries, three different law enforcement agencies.

Alison: How much would it cost you to keep that quiet? I mean, somebody like daddy would have at least made the newspapers.

Elizabeth: They just agreed to keep it quiet until we were absolutely sure. For god's sakes, alison, i have an entire file detailing the search for malcolm. You have no idea the resources that we pulled in.

Alison: Well, you've covered your bases so perfectly, so -- so you might as well leave. You've fed me all of your lies, so now why don't you do what you've done best my whole life and just leave.

Elizabeth: Alison --

alison: Just go. Please?

Rafe: Don't be a stranger.

Alison: This is so crazy.

Rafe: Hey. Come on, tell me.

Alison: I don't know if i can.

Rafe: Yeah, you can. Look, it's me. You can tell me anything.

Alison: This is not ok. Nothing about this is ok. My father is dead, and i didn't even know him.

marissa: You know, when stephen clay first called me and said he liked our song, I thought it was very cool. I was very flattered.

Joshua: Stephen didn't like your material.

Marissa: What?

Joshua: He loved it. When stephen heard your stuff, he pegged you as a genuine artist. I've known him a long time, but I've never known him to respond to someone's poetry. Well, that's what he called it. He told me to tell you that. He also asked me to tell you that he'd like to work with you.

Marissa: Oh. Well, I don't know if I'm comfortable signing with someone that i've never even met before.

Jamal: Yeah, yeah. And if what this guy is saying is true -- correct me if i'm wrong -- but we'll never get to meet the guy, right? What's the deal with that? That ain't right.

Joshua: Stephen is a very private person. This is the way he does things. He trusts me to express his will.

Ricky: Oh, I get it. Yeah, totally. It's that whole mystique thing. All the big stars are into it.

Joshua: Score one for the drummer.

Jamal: No, no, you see, that's a load of bull. This guy's trying to play you, ok?

Joshua: Who are you, sir?

Jamal: Who am i? I'm jamal woods, their manager.

Joshua: May I ask you a question? If you were going to go work for microsoft, would you expect to meet bill gates?

Jamal: That's a little bit different.

Joshua: Maybe. Maybe not. But as their manager, your job is to do what's best for your client.

Ricky: Whoa. Holy --

joshua: "Holy," indeed. How is this as a down payment for your services?

Alison: You know, the thing that is so pathetic about all this is that usually when someone loses someone -- a parent, mother or father -- they have something. You know, they have a memory or a feeling or something. A lot of kids would say -- I've even heard this before. Someone specifically told me, "my dad used to come home all the time straight from work. When he was really tired, he would change his clothes so he could immediately go play baseball with me." Or "I had so much homework that night, he totally helped me, even though I didn't want him to." This one girl specifically told me, "my dad even took me fishing. Can you believe that?" I was like, "no, i can't believe that."

Rafe: It was his loss.

Alison: Sometimes I remember, like, a smell, you know, that takes you back to a certain place. Like a cologne. Then i think it's probably just the house man at the time. All I really have that he's left behind for me is some presents that i really didn't want and some post cards with all kinds of promises that he never really delivered on. I mean, who does that? Who does that? What father leaves behind, like, nothing? Some people have invisible friends, and i have invisible parents. My nana would go to sleep at night and i would sneak into their bedroom. I'd pretend like they just got home from this event, and I'd go in there and i would dance around all formal-like. I would pretend -- pretend like my dad was showing me the waltz or something from how they danced at the party. And I would get out a hairbrush and I would pretend to brush my mother's hair out. How pathetic is that? How embarrassing is that?

Rafe: Hey, no, no, don't do that. They're pathetic, not you. Don't take their failures and make them your own, ok? Ok, look at me. You know what we're going to do? We're going to have a family, and we're going to show our kids the way that it should be.

Alison: I'm so lucky to be able to be your wife.

Alison: But I really thought that i would have so long to know him. I never stopped pretending that one day he'd really turn out to be a real father, that for our wedding -- for our wedding, he would stop right before i went down the aisle and look at me, take a deep breath, and say, "god, you look so beautiful."

Rafe: I'm sorry.

Alison: For the first time -- for the first time that he held my child, my son or my daughter, his grandchild, that he would forget all about what bothered him about being my dad. I guess I better grow up.

Rafe: It's ok. Come on. I'm sorry. Just let it go.

Alison: It's just so weird.

Rafe: It's all right. That's it, that's it.

Jack: Ok. This is trouble.

Tess: Trouble?

Jack: No. This is definitely the good kind of trouble. Tess, I don't want to leave you, but I got to go. I promise you that i'll be back. I swear. Ok?

Tess: Promise. More promise.

Jack: More promise. You got it.

Tess: Happily ever after.

Jack: Happily ever after.

Tess: Happily ever after.

Livvie: God, where are you, jack? Come on. I need you. If they find me before you do, they're going to do something awful to me and my baby. I know it. Hello? I don't understand. Jack, come on, you must know i need you now. We still have a connection between us, the one that lets you know when I'm in trouble. And it's really, really bad this time. God, jack, you must be feeling it, too. I know -- ow! Oh, jack. Jack!

joshua: As a professional, you should probably look at this contract. You have some decisions to make.

Jamal: Yeah, I'll look it over -- closely.

Ricky: Would you excuse us for a moment, please?

Jamal: What's up, what's up?

Ricky: When did you become our manager?

Jamal: Tell me there's not something shady about this.

Ricky: Tell me that that's not more cash than you've ever seen in your life. Look, this is the rock 'n' roll business. It's all a big show.

Jamal: Exactly, ricky. Ok, he comes in here flashing all this cash, and you think it's all good. Do not let that man play you.

Joshua: Do you always let those two decide your future?

Marissa: Actually, I like to do my own research before i make the big decisions.

Joshua: Seems to me you made the decision as soon as you put pen to paper as an artist.

Marissa: Well, then in that case, a case full of money is not really going to have that much effect on me, now, is it?

Joshua: I've been rich, and I've been poor. Rich is better. What shall i tell stephen?

Marissa: That i'm thinking about it. So, when is the next time you're going to be seeing stephen?

Joshua: He's actually waiting for me right now. So the bottom line is it's your choice.

Marissa: Yes, i know.

Joshua: Stephen doesn't like to be kept waiting.

Marissa: I'll keep that in mind.

Ricky: Look, this is how they do things in the music business, all right?

Jamal: Dude, like you would know that, ricky.

Ricky: Well, you know what? Forget you, all right?

Jamal: Forget me?

Ricky: Yeah. It's not up to you.

Jamal: This never would have happened if it wasn't for me sending that c.D. In. Ok, so here's what's going to happen. I'm going to talk to kate, let her check out this contract. If she says it's cool, then cool, all right?

Ricky: What about marissa? Are you going to check with her first?

Jamal: Of course I'm going to check with her. What are you talking -- ok, where is marissa?

Ricky: I don't know. She probably ran off to slit her wrist because her boyfriend passed up the chance of a lifetime.

Joshua: It's a go. Yeah. The girl's a little too curious about the great stephen clay. I've got it covered.

Livvie: Ow! Oh, dear god, what is happening to me? Oh! Oh, my baby! Please help us.

Tess: Baby -- my baby -- baby --

elizabeth: Well, you know, this would be so much easier if my darling daughter didn't hate my guts. No. I know what's at stake. I know more than anyone. Listen, I'll do whatever i have to do.

Alison: Daddy --

rafe: You know, if i could do anything, I would take away all your hurt. If i could make any wish come true, it would be so i could get inside your beautiful head and take away all the bad stuff, take away all the poison that makes you think you're not good enough. You know what I would do? I would make all your make-believe real. I would make all your dreams come true. Just remember what your dreams are made of, alison. Just follow your heart.

Marissa: I'll call you back, ok? I'm following --

[marissa screams]

lucy: She's carrying around a dead child, and if we don't find her, livvie could die, too.

Livvie: Oh, I can't wait for jack to come and take care of us.
