Port Charles Transcript Wednesday
proofread by Melissa
Kevin: I'm not talking about your latest beating. I'm talking about our agreement, Jenny. You were supposed to leave town.
Jenny: As soon as I get out of here, I'm gone. No one's ever going to find out you paid me all that money to drop the charges and leave town. It's our secret.
Kevin: I don't care how you do it. You find a way to vanish.
Jenny: You will never hear from me again. I'm really sorry someone called the cops.
Kevin: I'll handle them. I don't want anyone connecting me to you ever again.
Jenny: Don't worry, Dr. Collins. You have my word. I won't cause you any more trouble.
Kevin (To Lucy): Hey. You ok? Tell you what -- why don't we go home. This nightmare's over with.
Rafe: Don't play games with me, Livvie. I know you too well.
Livvie: People can change, Rafe.
Rafe: I don't know if you can. See, I think you're trying to set up Stephen, who we both know is Caleb.
Livvie: By dating Ricky? Boy, you've got some imagination, Rafe.
Rafe: You're using the poor guy to get to Stephen.
Livvie: And what, exactly, would I be setting Stephen up for? What, my big break as a backup singer?
Rafe: You tried to kill Caleb once. I think you're out to finish the job.
Livvie: And I think too much slaying and not enough playing has made you a really dull --
Rafe: But first -- first you have to make sure it is Caleb, so you're going to lure him out by making him jealous. That's where Ricky comes in.
Livvie: I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. My interest in Stephen Clay is zip, zero.
Rafe: All right. You know what? Stop. You don't have to defend yourself because the thing is I think your idea's a good one. I just want in on it.
Elizabeth: Hmm --
Stephen: Hey. You slept a long time.
Elizabeth: Oh, I just had the most awful dream. Oh. Tell me it was a dream, right? That what you said about me being a vampire wasn't true. I'm still the same person that I was, right? It was just a nightmare, wasn't it?
Stephen: Elizabeth, just calm down.
Elizabeth: Look -- no, tell me that that was a terrible mistake.
Stephen: You're just in a little bit of shock right now, all right, sweetheart all right? In time you'll come to accept this --
What? That I'm a -- a blood-sucking monster?
Stephen: Please, Elizabeth, now you're just being insulting.
Elizabeth: I'm changed now, Stephen, forever. I can never go back to being who I was!
Stephen: Correct me if I'm wrong, but your life wasn't so great before.
Elizabeth: At least I was human.
Stephen: I never held it against you.
Elizabeth: I've got to get away from you. I've got to find somebody who will help me!
Stephen: Hey -- oh, now you're talking crazy, all right? Relax, let me help you.
Elizabeth: Why did you do this?
Why did you do this to me?
Stephen: You want to know why? Because I wanted you. I wanted you, and the alternative was for you to die.

Kevin: You were pretty quiet on the way home. Is everything all right?
Lucy: It was just a terrible night and I'd really like to forget the whole thing happened.
Kevin: Yeah, you and me both. You know, it's Ian's fault that this happened.
Lucy: Don't. That -- that is not true.
Kevin: Really? Well, he sure jumped to conclusions about me and he couldn't wait to send the police to our door. Guess he'll never accept that I've actually gotten better and that I'm back with my wife, not that Ian has ever respected anyone's marriages, though.
Lucy: That's enough.
Kevin: Oh, come on. We both know why he did this. He'd pull any trick in the book to get me out of the way because he wants you for himself.
Lucy: Kevin, please don't.
Kevin: You know, if I'm not there, it's an open road to you -- that's what he's thinking -- and he'll have his big chance. You know, I can't believe that just a couple of days ago I was thanking him for being such a good friend to you. The man's a hypocrite.
Lucy: Stop it. I want you to stop it right now because Ian is not to blame.
Kevin: Lucy, he's the reason we went through this tonight.
Lucy: No, he isn't! You are. You're the hypocrite. I know what you did. I -- I heard what you said to that woman in the hospital.
Elizabeth: You would've killed me if I hadn't become like you?
Stephen: Of course not. What I meant was if I hadn't given you the gift of immortality, you would eventually die like all humans do. I couldn't bear that.
Elizabeth: You think that you did this for my own good?
Stephen: You think it's easy living forever while you watch the ones you love grow old and pass away? Watching their beauty fade? I couldn't watch that happen to you. I couldn't, my -- my beautiful Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: So in exchange, you turned me into a creature that lives off of blood.
Stephen: It doesn't have to be that way. I've discovered the secret, the best of both worlds.
Elizabeth: What secret?
Stephen: We can have immortality and all the power and the passion that comes with it without ever having to feed or ever being detected. Everything we need to survive is right here in this precious liquid. Listen, just take a drink and everything will feel better.
Elizabeth: No! You might as well have just let me die. This is the end to everything that I have ever known, and right when I found my daughter. I wanted to be there for her wedding, Stephen!
Stephen: Nothing has to be different!
Elizabeth: I am different!
Stephen: It -- it doesn't have to be. You've been watching too many old movies. Forget all the drama about crucifixes and sunlight. You can live exactly the way you want to live, only better and longer, and you can share it with me.
Elizabeth: But everything that Rafe told me about you is true. You're not Stephen. You are that -- that Caleb.
Stephen: What's in a name?
Elizabeth: But you hurt people! You almost destroyed this town. Why would I even want to be with somebody who would do something like that?
Livvie: You want to work with me and team up? Be all buddy-buddy? Dream on.
Rafe: Look, I can help you get to Caleb, force him to reveal himself, and send him right back to his grave.
Livvie: Oh. No, this is -- this is priceless. I mean, you've been treating me like dirt for several months now, barely admitting I exist, and now suddenly you want to help me?
Rafe: Hey, you know what? You need my help. Otherwise, that guy wouldn't still be breathing.
Livvie: I wouldn't help you or anyone else in this rotten town. I already did that. And where did that get me, Rafe? Not exactly miss popularity.
Rafe: Ok, we don't have to make this personal, Livvie. There's a killer o there who needs to be stopped.
Livvie: Maybe if I really thought this rock 'n' roller was Caleb, I'd be interested in your little plan here, but you are way off on this one.
Rafe: Come on, come on, come on. You've been suspicious of Stephen from the beginning.
Livvie: Yeah, maybe at first, but I actually believe that we all have a twin out there. And I'm not going to go kill some guy because he looks like some dead vampire or -- or so you could play the hero of the town.
Rafe: Livvie, come here. You need me to help. You're going to get killed if you do this on your own.
Livvie: Oh. Yeah, that would really break your heart, wouldn't it, Rafe?
Rafe: If you're not going to let me help you, do me a favor -- just stay away from him.
Livvie: What possible difference could it make what I do? Unless, of course, you're still a little hung up on me.
Rafe: Just take my advice, ok? You're in way over your head.
Livvie: Why don't you drop this ridiculous crusade of yours before you make a bigger fool of yourself. Leave Stephen alone.
Rafe: Really? And why would I do that, bright eyes? Unless --
Livvie: Unless what?
Rafe: Unless you're still hung up on Caleb. You don't want him dead, you want him back. You never got over him. You never got the guy out of your blood.
Kevin: Lucy, I never hurt or hit that woman in any way.
Lucy: How am I supposed to believe that, when for days you've been looking me right in the face and lying to me. You acted so surprised that all of a sudden that woman dropped the assault charges.
Kevin: Because I was trying to protect you.
Lucy: No. I -- I can't believe it. You -- you made me think that that whole thing was a sign from the universe that everything was going to be ok, that we were on the right track, we were getting everything back together, when all the time you had paid her off. You paid her to lie and you paid her to get out of town!
Kevin: I was just trying to make everything right for us again.
Lucy: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Kevin: I'm sorry.
Lucy: What are you sorry for? Are you sorry because you lied? Are you sorry because you got caught?
Kevin: Both, actually.
Lucy: Do you -- do you hear what you're saying? I don't believe it. I can't believe you. You stood there and you said, "this is it, Lucy, I'm going to face the music this time. I'm going to pay the consequences."
Kevin: I didn't like the consequences, ok? And what did I do that was so wrong?
Lucy: If you don't know that --
Kevin: I paid a prostitute money to start a new life. Some people might even call that charitable, Lucy.
Lucy: Oh --
kevin: And as I recall, you've solved more than one problem with a little cash.
Lucy: Yeah. Maybe I have. So maybe the cash isn't really the problem here. It's the fact that you just lied and it doesn't seem to bother you at all
Kevin: Well -- Lucy, you never lied to me? Come on, Lucy. You've never told a little fib when you've done something wrong even for all the right reasons? So the worst I can be accused of is putting our marriage first, because I refuse to lie down and let our life fall apart around us.
Lucy: Ok. Fine. You just go ahead and rationalize it any way you want. You still did something very wrong.
Kevin: Or maybe I finally did something right. Maybe I finally wised up.
Lucy: What are you talking about? You lied and you bribed somebody!
Kevin: So what? You want something bad enough, Lucy, you fight for it. Isn't that what you always say? I just took a page from your book, because I refuse to let anyone separate us again.
Livvie: If Stephen is Caleb, why would I want him back, huh? Do you think I am suicidal? I was the one who killed him before.
Rafe: I've given up trying to figure out what turns you on, but I do know you want Caleb back. I can see it in your eyes.
Livvie: God. Rafe, don't you have some silverware patterns to pick out or something? Why don't you and your precious little girlfriend leave me alone?
Rafe: All right, stop! I know you've been hurt, but you cannot let this monster destroy your life.
Livvie: You're too late for that. You and Alison already did that. And don't pretend that you give a damn about me, because you never did. I tried to love you. I tried to make you happy, and I also -- I loved Jack with all my heart, and both of you turned on me, so what more damage could a vampire do?
Rafe: Are you kidding me? You played us both, me and Jack.
Livvie: Yeah. And maybe it was just as well it ended up the way it did, because neither one of you were man enough to take what I was offering. Neither one of you were enough for me.
Rafe: Oh -- what is enough for you?
Livvie: I want someone who knows how to live, who makes me feel alive, not someone who gets caught up in duty and honor and all the other boring crap that you -- you hold on to like it's going out of style.
Rafe: You know what I think? I think you want someone without a soul, someone who lives in the darkness, someone who exists in the shadows.
Livvie: Yeah. Sounds like my kind of guy.
Rafe: God help you.
Livvie: I'll help myself, thank you. And I will get what I want. And there's not a blessed thing you can do to stop me.
Elizabeth: Don't try to deny it. You terrorized this town and everyone in it.
Stephen: Caleb did those horrible things. But I'm not him anymore. I'm Stephen.
Elizabeth: What's changed except your name?
Stephen: When I was Caleb, I lived in a world of loneliness and pain, and it was slowly poisoning me. I knew I couldn't go on like that.
Elizabeth: But vampires just can't up and join the human race.
Stephen: With this they can.
Elizabeth: So this -- this water or whatever it is, this allows you to live in the real world?
Stephen: All the benefits of being special without any of the side effects. Look at me. I used to be an outcast living in shadows, and now I'm -- hell, I'm Stephen Clay. I'm -- I'm born again with a chance to live a full life with the woman I love -- with you.
Elizabeth: With me? You love me?
Stephen: That's why I bound myself to you forever. Because I want you so much.
Elizabeth: Not just because you wanted to get closer to Alison and Rafe so that you could hurt them?
Stephen: Elizabeth, your words hurt me more than any slayer. Your cruel accusations --
Elizabeth: No, no, no, listen. I have to know the truth if you want me to accept this.
Stephen: When we first met, you told me no man ever loved you, no man ever made you feel so beautiful and alive. You were this hidden jewel. Can't you see how much I love you? Don't you see it every time I touch you?
Elizabeth: It's really me that you want? You don't want anyone else?
Livvie's voice: Call me what you always have -- sweet Olivia.
Stephen: You're the only woman I want. Let me tell you about your eyes. Let me tell you about your hair. Let me tell you about your beautiful lips.
Kevin: Lucy, I'm sorry I lied to you and I'm sorry that I hurt you, but I won't apologize for fighting for our life.
Lucy: We could have fought this together. You know we could afford the best team of lawyers, all the lawyers in the world if we wanted.
Kevin: And what if things didn't go our way? What then? I would have been looking at five years in jail.
Five years away from my family.
Lucy: But we would have faced that together as a family.
Kevin: That's not good enough anymore. I want to be there to teach Christina how to ride a bike, not read about it from behind bars. And I want to be there for our first anniversary together. I want to be able to raise a toast to my bride. So I found a way to make it happen.
Lucy: You bought your freedom.
Kevin: Well, $25,000 is a small price to pay for the privilege of continuing our future. Can you blame me for wanting my future back?
Lucy: I don't blame you for wanting that, no.
Kevin: I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "my Doc never would have done such a thing well, I am still that same man, Lucy, only better, because now I have the strength to do what it takes to keep us together. Lucy, isn't there some way we can get past this?
Lucy: What would you have done if you could not have bought off that woman?
Kevin: Upped the price.
Lucy: What if no amount of money was enough? What then?
Kevin: Everyone has their price, Lucy.
Rafe: Hey. Hey, you know what? Go ahead. Go ahead. You keep playing with fire, you're just going to destroy yourself.
Livvie: It's my life.
Livvie: You know, I'm going to use the bathroom to powder my nose. Is that ok?
Rafe: Go ahead.
Ricky: Yo, Rafe. Special delivery -- one water bottle.
Rafe: Thanks, man. Good job. So this is Stephen's special designer water, huh?
Ricky: That's right. Doesn't go anywhere without it. He drinks it by the gallons. I snagged it from the rehearsal hall.
Rafe: Yeah, about that. Remember what we said. We'll just keep this between us, right?
Ricky: Mm-hmm. That works for me. The guy's got a pretty fierce temper.
Rafe: Ricky, don't get on his wrong side.
Ricky: Oh, I wasn't planning on it.
Ricky: Hey. Wow, look at you.
Livvie: Why don't we get out of here, because I got a really good dinner to make you, and then we can leave the rest up to you.
Rafe: This water's got to be the key.
Stephen: Our life's together's just beginning, but you'll see. The world is at our fingertips. And this -- this is our ticket to freedom.
Elizabeth: So what happens if someone who isn't one of us drinks that?
Stephen: Well, don't worry about that, my love. You have no troubles. You have nothing to worry about forever.
On the next "port charles" --
Jack: And I want to make love to you.
Rafe: So, what do you think?
Chris: It's a serum. A vampire serum.
Livvie: I know about your special water.
Stephen: Don't push it.
Livvie: Then get over here now.
