proofread by Melissa
Colleen: Ok, Alison, if you can sign there. Great. And initial there. You are now officially free to go home.
Alison: Oh, thanks, Colleen.
Colleen: You're welcome. I love a happy ending. You guys have a great Thanksgiving.
Alison: Thank you. You, too.
Rafe: We have so much to be thankful for.
Alison: I know.
Rafe: I just wish we had some time, just you and me, you know?
Alison: I know. I do, too, but we are expected over at Lucy's, and this is going to be the first Thanksgiving, for as long as I can remember, that I'm going to spend it with my mother. And I'm a little worried aut it, because I know I'm going to have my mother on one side, and my Nana on the other, and I don't want to be playing mediator all night long.
Rafe: Yeah. You know what? Don't worry about that. I have a feeling you're not going to have to run interference at all between the two of them. I mean, if they have a single brain cell between the two of them, they're going to be on their best behavior, just for you.
Alison: Right. And so will you, right?
Rafe: What do you mean? I'm -- I'm perfect, aren't I?
Alison: Yes, you are. You are absolutely perfect. But I was hoping that maybe just for one day maybe we might not talk about vampires. Can you do that for me?
Rafe: No vampires, no vampires, no vampires, no vampires, no vampires --
Rafe: Ok, no vampires -- that's what I'm saying.
Alison: Ok, thank you. And you're right, we do have so much to be thankful for. And I was thinking that maybe you and I could go count our blessings before we dive into the holidays. What do you say?
Rafe: Ok. You got someplace special in mind?
Alison: Yes, I do.
Ian: It was fine where it was. What are you --
lucy: No. No, no, no, it's not. It needs -- well, it goes -- I putting it there -- again.
Ian: Putting it there. Ok, good, perfect.
Lucy: Right. Good. No, I'm going to put it back over here.
Christina: Is it dinner yet?
Lucy: Hey -- um -- it will be soon -- soon, soon. You guys look great.
Ian: A couple of people having fake turkey. What is that?
Lucy: It's --
Lucy: It's not fake turkey, it's tofu turkey, not fake.
Serena: In honor of Sigmund.
Serena: Lucy's duck. You know, a long time ago, she saved him from becoming Thanksgiving dinner.
Ian: Sigmund. Oh, yeah, yeah.
Lucy: Right, right. It's a very long-standing tradition.
Serena: We have a lot of traditions.
Lucy: Yeah, we sure do, like everybody getting together, friends and family come -- almost everybody.
Serena: Come on, Christina, let's go upstairs. Come on.
Lucy: Um -- ok, have fun. I'll call you when dinner's -- oh.
Ian: I'll put this in a safe place.
Lucy: Thank you for doing that, thanks. Wait a minute. No -- um -- no. It -- it has -- it has to go over here.
Lucy: Because it's just -- it's where Kevin always puts it to carve the turkey.
Jamal: Looks good in here.
Jack: Oh, yeah, you ought to see this turkey Tess cooked up.
Tess: Jack --
Jack: Big and juicy.
Tess: Made the turkey and let me help.
Marissa: Oh, well, you know what? You guys both have one up on me, because my cooking would have killed us all. That is why I bought every single side dish known to man. We have sweet potato pie, we got gravy --
Jamal: Mashed potatoes.
Jack: Oh, I love sweet potato pie.
Jamal: Some stuffing -- everything for a Thanksgiving dinner.
Marissa: Yes, and I will be on that.
Jamal: Get on it.
Jack: All right, you two.
Marissa: Tess, let's go warm this up, because at least I know I can do that much in the kitchen.
Jamal: Tess --
Tess: I'll show you -- the kitchen.
Jamal: Thanks. Wow. You got to love them. You got to love them. Well, baby boy, this place is looking kind of cozy here.
Jamal: I see you're doing the whole domestic thing and this -- mm-hmm, mm-hmm.
Jack: You have no idea.
Jamal: Oh, dude. Come on, dude, cheer up, dude. She's a cutie. Ok, she's not Livvie.
Jack: She is. Tess is doing great. She's learning fast.
Jack: But, Jamal, she -- she wanted to sleep with me.
Jamal: Jack, that's ok. That's a good thing, ok?
Jack: No, no, Jamal, it's a lot more complicated than that.
Jamal: Oh, ok, I got you. Ok. It's one of those things.
Jack: No, this is not something you're going to get, not in a million years. Tess isn't like us. She might not be human.
[Captioning made possible by abc, inc.]
Jamal: Ok, this is too weird, ok? Everyone has D.N.A. They just do.
Jack: Yeah, I know. I know that.
Jamal: Look, this is too freaky, dude. I don't know, I don't know.
Jack: Look, I know, Jamal. I can't even go there.
Jamal: Maybe if you just ran some more tests, like Ian said, this whole matter would be straightened out.
Jack: It's a little more complicated than that.
Jamal: Yeah, like she shows up out of nowhere looking just like your ex-girlfriend. She heals the injured with her bare hands, and she happens to have no D.N.A. Yeah, I'd say that's pretty complicated.
Jack: I know, but look at her. How could she not be real?
Jamal: Maybe it's a whole other deal, dude. Maybe, you know, Caleb's twin shows up out of nowhere -- Livvie's twin shows up at the same time.
Jack: No, she's not connected to Caleb.
Jamal: I'm just doing the math. That's it, man.
Marissa: I love Thanksgiving. It's cold, but it's not too cold. And people start getting into the spirit.
Tess: The spirit?
Marissa: Oh, yeah. This is the time that my family starts getting ready for Christmas. Dad gets the lights up on the house, and mom pulls out recipes. She starts making wreaths.
Tess: Um -- ah - -- don't you have lights in your house all the time?
Marissa: Oh, yeah, of course. Um -- never mind. You know what, Tess? I had a twin, too. Yeah, I never got to meet her, though.
Tess: A twin like Livvie?
Marissa: Not exactly like Livvie, but people said we looked identical, like you and Livvie.
Marissa: What? What's the matter, Tess? Are you ok? Are you all right? What --
Tess: No -- Livvie --
Lucy: You shouldn't move that. It's got to stay right there.
Ian: It's not safe with the wee ones running around.
Lucy: Um -- well -- um -- right, so we'll just have to make it very clear to them to not go near it. It stays there.
Ian: You're not being reasonable. It's a knife.
Lucy: Maybe I'm not being -- it is a knife, but that's where Kevin likes that knife.
Ian: Kevin isn't here, the children are. Ok?
Lucy: I know, and you're here. You and me are here together. And this is Kevin's home. It's his house and it's all his stuff. And it's Thanksgiving, and we're acting like all this is perfectly normal.
Ian: I'm well aware of everything that belongs to Kevin.
Lucy: I'm -- I'm just having a hard time imagining what it's like for him being away from us with the holidays and all, and I think it's just -- I want him to feel comfortable when he comes home.
Ian: I get it. And if you feel that I don't respect the sanctity of his home, then maybe --
Lucy: No, no, I -- no, that's not it. I didn't say that. I don't want you to think that -- no, I know -- I know what you're doing. You're helping me and you're making my life and my girls' lives much easier. It's just -- it's hard, you know, because it's Thanksgiving. This is the first Thanksgiving since Kevin and I got married, and this is the first time that Christina's been able to be with us, because Kevin brought her to me. And, you see, look at this place. It looks gorgeous, doesn't it? It's going to be nice. It's about great food, people are on the way, everybody's coming, and everything is perfect, except for one thing. Kevin's not here. But I think what's making this really extra hard is you. I keep hearing what you said to me in my head. I don't think there's been an hour that's gone by that I haven't heard your voice in my head, and it keeps getting mixed in with all the memories that are in this house. And so I guess I'm just asking you, how am I supposed to act like everything's normal, when you told me that you loved me?
Serena: Mom? What's going on?
Serena: What do you mean, Ian says he loves you?
Ian: I -- I can -- no, no -- I -- you -- um -- your mom is sad because Kevin isn't here, you know, on a day like this. So I told her that we love her, you know, to make her -- to make her feel better. Because then even if she's sad, she knows that there's people around her that -- that care about her very much.
Serena: I want Kevin back, too, mom. I miss him a lot.
Lucy: I know you do. I know.
Serena: And I'm sorry I don't tell you I love you at least two times every day. I'll do better, I promise.
Lucy: Oh, jeez. You don't have to do better. You don't do anything bad. You do enough. You -- you are the absolute, most fantastic, coolest, wonderfulest daughter a mom could ever have, and I love you, ok?
Ian: Will you look at that. How -- how's young Danny doing? All right?
Serena: Yeah, he fell asleep. And Christina wants another cracker.
Lucy: Oh. Uh -- I think I'm out. Get some -- get her some nuts.
Serena: I love you, mom.
Lucy: I love you, too, pumpkin head. Ok, as soon as dinner's ready, I'm on it. I'm calling you. Oh, jeez. Thank you. Once again, you saved me from disaster. Ugh.
Ian: She's a great kid. And you're right, she shouldn't have to deal with us.
Lucy: No, she shouldn't. And neither should you. You shouldn't have to deal with -- why are you dealing with me? I -- you know that? I don't understand that. You need to explain. Why on earth would you put up with me? I'm moody and I'm stubborn and I'm making you eat tofu turkey and I send you mixed messages. I yell at you, even when you're just trying to keep us safe.
Ian: And you're loving and loyal, with a heart as big as this crazy universe you keep talking about. And, you know, you're a very lucky woman, because you have me as a friend. So what do you say? Let's leave all this behind us and make this as wonderful a day as we can. Ok?
Lucy: Ok, I'd like that very, very much.
Alison: I just thought that maybe this would be the perfect place for us to come and really think about all the things that we're grateful for, all the wonderful blessings in our lives, so that maybe we could stop worrying about the things that we don't have and start concentrating on the things that we do have, the things that we're most grateful for, and I think that that starts with you and me. So, I think we should tell him how grateful we are for everything.
Rafe: Ok, but come here. You don't have to whisper.
Alison: Right. I just wanted to tell him how grateful I am to have my mother back in my life. So will you tell him?
Rafe: Why me?
Alison: Because you have a special connection with him up there, and he'll listen to you.
Rafe: Yeah, but here's the thing. I don't have that kind of cloud there anymore, so he'll listen to you just as quick as he'll listen to me.
Alison: Right. Ok. Well, I'm very happy to report that this year I have a lot of things to be grateful for. First of all, I wanted to thank you for bringing rafe back to me. You have no idea what it means for me to have him. And I promise, you won't be sorry you sent him back. And I just wanted to tell you thank you for bringing my mother back into my life. I'm just trying to get to know her again, but I'm going to try and make up for all the lost time. And I wanted to say a small little prayer for my father and this child that no one knows. It would really be great if -- if we could meet each other. So for all of those things and more, I just wanted you to know how thankful I really am. Ok, now it's your turn.
Rafe: Ok. Hi. It's me. I'm really grateful for a lot of things. First of all, I'm grateful that Alison is healthy and safe, because, you know, it's been really scary around here lately. And while we're on that subject, if you want to ease off on those close calls, by all means, go ahead, because I'm --
Rafe: I'm just being honest. Ok, well, I'm really grateful that Alison and I have each other and that she sees how stubborn and how truly obsessive I can be. You know what? She loves me anyway. And I'm really grateful to you for letting me live a life with someone who truly is amazing and completely loving. And I hope I can make you proud. And her -- I hope I can make Alison proud. I am really, really grateful that I get to know what true love really is.
Jack: Ok, ok, maybe Tess is connected to Stephen Clay and maybe she isn't, but, Jamal, we don't even know who this Stephen Clay guy is for sure.
Jamal: Wait, hold on, time out -- are you the same dude that tried to ice this guy?
Jack: Yeah, but what if I was wrong? I mean, Livvie had me so paranoid that I wasn't even thinking straight.
Jamal: Ok, so how are you thinking now?
Jack: Jamal, I'm thinking that I love this girl. And I don't know how that happened, but it did. It just happened.
Jamal: Well, it's not hard to figure out how it happened. I mean, all you got to do is take one look at her --
jack: No, she's not Livvie. She's nothing like her.
Jamal: I know she's not Livvie. I'm not saying that, but you got to admit, the situation's kind of twisted.
Jack: Ok, Jamal, I might be crazy, but she's innocent, she's sweet --
Jamal: Ok, ok, that's fine.
Jack: She's pure, and she needs me to take care of her. And if people start thinking that she's connected to some vampire or that she doesn't have D.N.A., They're going to treat her like some freak.
Jamal: Yeah, I got that. So how long do you think this is going to stay a secret as long as Ian is all over your case about it?
Jack: I'm going to make sure it stays a secret. I'm not going to let them destroy the purest soul I know. It's not going to happen.
Marissa: Here, Tess, drink this, drink this, you should drink this.
Tess: No. No.
Marissa: Tess, please.
Tess: No --
Marissa: Drink this.
Tess: No, don't!
Marissa: Ok, uh-huh. You know what? You need to sit down. You look like you're going to faint.
Livvie's voice: Caleb?
Marissa: Come on.
Livvie's voice: Why won't you come out? I want to see you.
Tess: Stop it! Oh! Stop it! Oh. Oh.
Marissa: Jack, you got to get in here right now!
Jack: Tess -- Tess --
[Tess hums "Naked Eyes"]
Jack: Hey, Tess, Tess, what's wrong? It's me. It's me. I'm here. It's Jack. It's me. What did you do to her?
Marissa: Nothing, nothing. She just went off. I --
Jack: No, you did something to her, because she gets like that when she's scared.
Marissa: I didn't do anything, ok? We were talking, we were putting out food and --
Jamal: Calm down, calm down.
Marissa: Ok, everything was fine, and she just blanked out. She went somewhere else and -- I -- she was like this. All of a sudden, she was like this. It was freaky. Jamal --
jack: She's not a freak!
Jamal: No one --
Marissa: No -- no, Jack, I didn't mean it like that.
Jack: See, Jamal? I told you this was going to happen. I'm not going to let this happen. Guys, you got to go. Get your food and whatever you got to get and go.
Jamal: Ok, ok, ok.
Jack: I got to be alone with her.
Jamal: Just come on, come on. Let's just go home.
Jack: It's alright,....
Marissa: I'm sorry. What just happened in there?
Jamal: I don't know, but Jack is in some deep trouble.
Jack: There we go. There we go. You're fine now, Tess, ok? You're fine.
Tess: No. Jack, I'm not. I'm Livvie.
Jack: No, no, no, no. No, you're Tess. You're beautiful Tess, and I love you very much, ok? Don't -- it doesn't matter where you came from. No, listen to me, listen to me. You're real to me. That's a that matters. Look, I love you, Tess. I love you. Hey. It's ok.
Lucy: I -- uh -- I don't think this is going to get any easier. I can just sort of tell.
Ian: I can't pretend. Maybe I don't want to.
Lucy: I'm not sure what I want anymore.
Ian: We mean something to each other. I'm grateful for that.
Serena: Wasn't us, mom. It came from upstairs.
Alison's voice: I have a tiny favor to ask. I know Rafe has a calling, and he has to destroy evil where he finds it. And I know he believes the evil is coming close again. So, please, give him the strength that he'll need --
Rafe's voice: To find the truth, whatever it may be and wherever it takes me. I know she hates what I do, but please help her to understand --
Alison's voice: And give me the patience to always stand by him in his search. Please, please always keep him safe --
Rafe's voice: Because this is the only way I know how to keep her safe. And if I should fail --
Alison's voice: Do not let him fail. Watch out for him. Please protect my Rafe --
Rafe's voice: And protect my angel.
Stay tuned for scenes from the next "Port Charles: Naked Eyes."
On the next "Port Charles" --
Livvie: I bet if I try, I can get you to tell me everything.
Elizabeth: I hope you don't mind. I brought a guest.
