Port Charles Transcript Friday
proofread by Melissa
Elizabeth: Wait! Don't -- don't -- don't drink that!
Alison: Why not? It's just water.
Elizabeth: I know perfectly well what it is. I just don't want you near it.
Alison: Why not? What's -- what's wrong with it? And while we're at it, what is wrong with you?
Rafe: My instincts were right all along, weren't they, Caleb?
Stephen: So it would seem.
Rafe: "Seem"? I saw your freaking fangs, man.
Stephen: Ah, but we both know you can't always trust what you see. The mind has a funny way of playing tricks. One minute something's there, right in front of your eyes, and the next minute, it's gone.
Ricky: What do you say we move this into the bedroom?
Livvie: Um -- can you just wait a little bit longer, please?
Ricky: Wait for what?
Livvie: Something's wrong.
Ricky: Whoa -- what do you mean, something's wrong? Nothing's wrong.
Livvie: The door is open.
Ricky: No, the door's not open. I closed it myself. Wait, wait, wait -- where are you going? Come here.
Livvie: Come on, let me go, please?
Ricky: What are you --
Livvie: Ok, I know you were here, Caleb. Where did you go?
Stephen: Ooh. Oh. Poor slayer. He does try.
Rafe: But you're right, Caleb. The mind does have a way of playing all kinds of strange tricks.
Kevin: All right, thanks.
Jack: The door was open.
Kevin: What do you want, Jack?
Jack: Did you get my message?
Kevin: You want to talk to me about Tess?
Jack: Yeah. I just wanted to find out why you haven't been by to see her since you been back.
Kevin: I've been busy.
Jack: Too busy to come by and see your own --
Kevin: What? My what, Jack -- my daughter? Is that what Tess is supposed to be?
Jack: It's possible. I mean, she does look like Livvie. How do you explain that?
Kevin: Well, this is Port Charles, Jack. How do you explain a lot of things? There is no evidence that Livvie had a twin. There is no evidence that this woman you call Tess even exists. Why do you care, anyway?
Jack: Tess needs a family. She needs to feel like she belongs.
Kevin: So you want me to what -- invite her into the Collins family?
Jack: And that would be so bad?
Kevin: Yeah, Jack. It would.
Ricky: Hey, look. I don't know how that door got open, but it's closed now, all right? We have all the privacy that we need, so why don't you just come over -- what are you doing? Why are you putting that on?
Livvie: I think you better go, Ricky.
Ricky: What? We were having fun here.
Livvie: Right -- "were," but, look, things just didn't quite work out, so let's just call it a night, ok?
Ricky: Wait a minute. Do you want to tell me what just happened here? I mean, did I do something --
Livvie: Let's not get into a whole thing here, ok, Ricky, please?
Ricky: Oh, I'm -- I'm sorry. I mean, pardon my curiosity, but a minute ago, you couldn't get enough, and now you're practically throwing me out the door?
Livvie: Yeah. Look, don't worry about it. It's nothing, just a really, really big mistake.
Ricky: Yeah, you're damn right, a big mistake. You know what? You're seriously twisted.
Livvie: I haven't heard that before. Ricky, look, I don't mean to rush you or anything, but I am in a hurry.
Ricky: You and me both. Don't worry, Livvie. I'm out of here. You know, there's a word for girls like you. I'm sure you've heard it before.
Livvie: Good-bye, Ricky.
Stephen: I see you've still got some of the old magic left. Kudos.
Rafe: How'd you do it?
Stephen: Do what?
Rafe: You know what. How were you able to come back?
Stephen: Does it really matter? You're here, I'm here. I'm sure we both have our own reasons for returning.
Rafe: Well, I know what your reasons are -- they never change. You're here to destroy.
Stephen: Who said anything about destroying anything?
Rafe: Are you going to stand there and deny the Hell you put this town through?
Stephen: I'm not denying anything. All I'm saying is that was the past, that was Caleb.
Rafe: What do you mean? You are Caleb.
Stephen: Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah. We may share the same good looks, but inside, I'm like you, and might I add, a vastly improved version. Not Caleb --Stephen Clay.
Rafe: Ah, I see, well, you can call yourself whatever you want, but you're no different than what you were!
Stephen: If I'm no different, how is it you can barely sense me this time around, slayer? Hmm? And you might have noticed that I've been back a little while now and nothing's happened -- bodies aren't piling up, blood banks are safe.
Rafe: Wait, wait, wait. So what are you telling me -- you're just a regular guy?
Stephen: As regular as a rock star can be.
Rafe: I see. So you're a regular rock star with fangs and with the strange ability to protect yourself. So how do you do that? How do you protect yourself from me, huh? I don't think it's a talisman this time. I wonder what it could be. Oh, you know, I did notice something -- the Caleb that I know didn't walk around guzzling water all day, but you don't go anywhere without it, so that's it, isn't it?
Stephen: Believe what you want.
Rafe: You know what I believe? I believe that that water allows you to not feed, so don't give me this "I'm all good now."
Stephen: I never said I was all good.
Rafe: No, you know what? You're never going to change. The only difference is this time, you're not destroying everything straight out. You're just messing with our minds.
Stephen: You and your buddies tried to destroy me first.
Rafe: So, that's it -- you're back for revenge?
Stephen: Why is everything always so dramatic with you? Ok. Yeah, I wanted to make a grand entrance, get in your face a little bit and have a little bit of fun, but that's all there was to it.
Rafe: Ok, so you created this rock star persona just so you could get in my face?
Stephen: Don't flatter yourself, Rafe. I enjoy being Stephen Clay. Who wouldn't? Man, when you're a rock star, everybody loves you, everybody adores you -- even your little fiancée Alison.
Rafe: Right. And les s not forget about her mother, Elizabeth -- you know, the woman you bit?
Stephen: Ah, that.
Rafe: Yeah, so what was that you were saying about no feeding, no blood? You took your fangs and you sunk them into her neck. You turned her.
Stephen: I gave her a gift, a gift I thought she'd love as much as --
Rafe: You thought she would love being a vampire?
Stephen: She's happy. We're happy. We fulfill each other's needs. She's a perfect partner.
Rafe: A perfect partner that happens to be the perfect way to get to me.
Stephen: Does everything have to be about you, man? All right. I admit, maybe in the beginning, it had a little something to do with it. But once I got to know her, I -- I don't know, I ended up realizing how special she really is, and we just want to build this little life together.
Rafe: So what are you going to do, settle down, live happily ever after in Port Charles as model citizens?
Stephen: Yeah, something like that.
Rafe: I don't think so.
Jack: So what do you have against Tess? And what has she ever done to you?
Kevin: I'll draw you a picture, Jack. Livvie comes to visit me in the hospital. She tells me about this young woman who's come to town -- exact look-alike, miraculous powers to do all kinds of things. Everybody loves Tess. Including you, apparently. Meanwhile, those same people treat my daughter like something they scraped off the bottom of their shoe.
Jack: Oh. I see what this is about. You're pissed off because I fell in love with Tess.
Kevin: Psychologically, Jack, I won't even begin to go into the obvious implications of falling for the exact replica of the woman you used to love.
Jack: Yeah, used to love before she destroyed it, after she destroyed all the other relationships in her life, as well.
Kevin: Except with me.
Jack: Well, maybe that says something about you, doesn't it?
Kevin: Good-bye, Jack.
Jack: No, I'm not leaving here until you listen to me. Tess has nothing to do with Livvie. She's nothing like her. She's somehow connected to you whether you like it or not.
Ricky: This is what you were waiting for -- the doublemint twin here? I mean, this is part of your sick little game that you're playing he, Livvie? You know what? No, no -- I don't need to hear it. I don't care. Oh, and by the way, in case you were wanting to stop by the rehearsal hall and hang out with the band, forget about it, all right? You, too, sis.
Livvie: Tess. God, what are you doing here? Where's Jack?
Tess: Jack is -- he's home. He's asleep.
Livvie: Well, you mean he doesn't know that you're here?
Tess: I couldn't tell him. I was afraid.
Livvie: Afraid? What were you afraid of? Tess, what is it that you couldn't tell Jack?
Tess: I saw you, Livvie.
Tess: You were in -- you were in the woods and you were dead.
Elizabeth: It's not a big deal, Alison. I don't see why you're getting so upset.
Alison: I'm getting upset because of the way that you are acting. You just took that bottle out of my hand like it was some sort of poison.
Elizabeth: No, there's nothing wrong with the water. It's -- I just didn't want you to get my germs. I still might have a little bit of that flu bug.
Alison: Let me see this. Let me see it.
Elizabeth: What -- oh, you think there's vodka in there? You think I'm some kind of a closet alcoholic?
Alison: I don't know what to think, I don't.
Elizabeth: It's just water. I've said, Alison. I just -- I don't want you to get sick.
Alison: That doesn't make any sense, mother. I just took a sip of your soda yesterday and you didn't seem to get upset at all. Why is this any different?
Elizabeth: Stephen just said that it wouldn't be good for somebody who's not --
Alison: Who's not what?
Elizabeth: Who's not in his group. Please, Alison, just give that to me. Thank you. Thank you. That's just the end of that. Um -- let's talk about something more interesting, ok? Let's talk about the wedding.
Alison: Wait a second. Look, you just said the other day -- you just talked about special water, this designer water. Mother, is that what this is? Is this, like, designer drugs? Has the band got you hooked on something?
Elizabeth: Oh, Alison, this -- this is very, very different than drugs.
Stephen: What are you doing, man? We've been down this road before. It doesn't solve anything. We do battle, one of us wins, usually me, but in the end, we both end up losing. Look at yourself, Rafe. I mean, sure, we can do this good-versus-evil thing till the end of time. But is that all you want out of life, man? Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought this time around, you wanted to be normal.
Rafe: That is what I want.
Stephen: Ok. Well, right here, right now, we both have a chance for that. Do you really want to risk losing it over some ancient feud started by people we don't even know? Does any of this even matter anymore? Think about it because I do. I've been given this chance, a chance to live this incredible life -- money, power, love, eternal life -- everything I've ever wanted, and I didn't have to hurt anybody. And you -- your future's right in front of you, right there for the taking, everything you've ever wanted -- Alison, a wedding, a honeymoon, a little vine-covered cottage with little blond kids running around out in front. Man, you've got the dream. So what do you say we just drop all this once and for all because from where I'm standing, we both have too much to lose. Come on, man. Give it a chance. Bury the hatchet, or in this case, the stake. What do you say?
Rafe: There's only one problem, Caleb. See, you can't change who you really are. You might be a harmless rock star now, but it's only a matter of time before the vampire inside comes out.
(Rafe stabs him)
Rafe: I can't let that happen.
Alison: Hey, hey, this is not funny.
Elizabeth: I'm sorry, Alison. It's just if you knew how funny this really was.
Alison: Ok, listen -- hey. I know about the whole rock band thing, ok? I get it. I know that they experiment with a lot of different things and that is sort of the mystique of it all. And it's very easy to get sucked in, and if you are on something, I'm not going to get upset with you. But if you are, just tell me and I will help you, I promise.
Elizabeth: Alison, you have no idea what you're dealing with here.
Alison: Ok, maybe I don't. But I think we both know how important it is to keep truth between us. And as long as we're honest with each other, we can get through anything.
Elizabeth: You really do care, don't you?
Alison: Of course I care. You are my mother.
Elizabeth: And you really want to know what this is all about? Alison, it's the most amazing and beautiful thing. Oh, baby. We've gotten so close, haven't we? I would love if we could get even closer. You know what? I'm going to share this gift with you right now.
Jack: What's the real problem here, Kevin? I mean, are you afraid to face the truth -- that Tess is the best part about Livvie, and the daughter you love so much might be as big of a freak as you are?
Kevin: You don't have children, Jack, so it's no wonder you'd underestimate unconditional love. I have no idea where this Tess came from. The fact is neither do you. I don't know what she is and neither do you, but I do know one thing -- she's out to steal Livvie's life and that does mean something to me if not to you or to anyone else. So why don't you do us all a favor -- why don't you be Tess' family? I got my own.
Livvie: Ah, maybe this is it -- the answer I've been looking for, the explanation for you, Tess. Listen to me. You have to tell me everything, exactly what you saw.
Tess: We were in -- in the woods and -- and I was with Stephen and he was pulling me away from you.
Livvie: Only it wasn't Stephen. It was Caleb.
Livvie: Listen, don't worry about that now. Go on. Come on, tell me the rest.
Tess: No, I can't. I'm scared.
Livvie: Tess, don't be scared. Please, you have to remember. This is very important for the both of us.
Tess: No. But it hurts.
Livvie: I know. Tess, my head's hurting, too, now, just like yours. Listen, we -- we can't stop, ok? We have to try. We have to keep trying. We both will. Tess, please. Just close your eyes and try to remember everything that you can, ok?
Caleb's voice: We're together, Olivia, bound to each other through the ages.
Caleb's voice: To come of your own free will, both of our souls, to hide in eternity. Above and beyond death itself, we are one, everlasting.
Tess: Oh, God.
Livvie: No, come on. We have to keep going. Keep remembering. Go on.
[Tess screams and cries]
Livvie: Oh, my God. It's true. I remember. You really are a part of me.
Tess: I am you. I was made from you. There is no Tess.
Rafe: I never could've trusted you, Caleb.
Stephen: Well, what do you know? I'm even immune to the stake now. Ah. So what do you think we ought to do with this, slayer? I mean, it didn't work on me, that you're just a man now, aren't you? Just flesh and blood?
On the next "port charles" --
Tess: It all came back to ..
Jack: What are you talking about?
Tess: I'm a part of Livvie.
Alison: Yes, yes, I'll hold but please hurry.
Elizabeth: I have a special gift for you, Alison.
Singer: Through naked eyes
Rafe: Take your best shot.
