Elizabeth: Good evening, now that it's almost tomorrow, what took you so long?
Elizabeth: Yeah, you're sorry, what, that you had the lay the eggs yourself or that, like, you swam to Marseille? Thank you very much. Good-bye. Oh, great. And it's cold. Excellent. Oh, good God, I don't know if I can spend one more hour alone in this level of hell that dante never even dreamt of.
Joshua: Not quite alone.
Joshua: Mmm. Chocolate -- yum-yum. Now, you know, if I didn't know any better, I would think that you've been deliberately trying to avoid me.
Ian: The place that I saw when I heard Caleb's music -- right here.
Lucy: The healing pool?
Ian: The healing pool, yes, and that's all it says. There's no location, nothing. There's no title on this book --
Lucy: Ian --
Ian: What is this? There's nothing on the spine -- nothing.
Lucy: Ian --
Lucy: I'm sorry for asking you to leave my house. I'm sorry for throwing that carton of books. I'm sorry for the --
Ian: I'm sorry, too.
Lucy: Nothing happened. Nothing happened. I was simply -- I was trying to save my --
Ian: I know.
Lucy: So what do you think? Do you think we can really find this healing pool?
Lucy: The book -- the healing pool thing? Do you think we can find it?
Ian: Yeah. No, I think it's another piece in the puzzle. And if we can figure it out, maybe we can get rid of this curse forever.
Lucy: Do you know what I think? I think I know somebody that might be able to help us. Come on. Come on, trust me. Let's go.
Ian: Come on.
Rafe: The answer is here somewhere. It's in his notes. What is it? What is it? What is it?
Alison: Did you figure anything out yet?
Alison: Hi. You've been at that for a couple hours. Why don't you give it a break.
Rafe: You still mad at me? Should we talk?
Alison: No. I don't want to talk. You know, it's not that I'm mad at you because you didn't want to sleep with me --
Rafe: Oh, yeah, it is, but I tried to explain that to you.
Alison: I know. I know. You explained it. You think that Caleb's music affected me somehow. But even if it did, I still wanted you, you know what I mean? So it doesn't really make a difference. Like, who cares?
Rafe: So what, you want to file for a divorce?
Alison: Maybe I do.
Rafe: Right, ok, even though we're not officially married yet.
Alison: Don't make fun of me, Rafe. I'm serious.
Rafe: Ok. All right. Is there any way I can talk you out of it?
Alison: Maybe. Don't. It's not funny. I'm upset. Oh, my God.
Ah! Don't! I'm serious.
Rafe: Wow, things I got to do to save this relationship.
[Knock on door]
Rafe: Should I get that?
Alison: Ok, yes.
Alison: But get back here because I'm not through with you.
Rafe: Yes, ma'am.
Kevin: Just let me get this out, and then you can tell me no and slam the door in my face, ok?
Rafe: Hi, Kevin. What do you want?
Kevin: I know you're trying to get rid of Caleb. I'm here to volunteer.
Jack: Tess, what are you --
Jack: No, Tess, Tess -- hold on, hold on, at least --
Tess: No. Just leave me alone.
Jack: No, look, let me --
Tess: Explain what I saw?
Jack: No. No, no, no. No! I apologize. I'm sorry you had to see that.
Tess: You're sorry I saw, but not sorry you did it, right?
Jack: No, I'm not.

Lucy: It's called the healing pool. Does that ring a bell at all?
Victor: It might if I knew why you were looking for it.
Lucy: Well, we --
Ian: I'm writing a paper, a medical paper.
Victor: I beg your pardon. I've spent most of my life as an intelligence agent in the field. Please don't try to play me.
Ian: You're right, I'm sorry. It's very hard for me to ask you anything, but we need your help with this. Otherwise, I wouldn't.
Victor: All right. I may have something back here that will help you. It seems to me that I --
Lucy: Oh. I got it. I got it. Keep going. Keep talking.
Victor: About a group of soldiers badly wounded, stumbling on this place after a battle at the time of the Revolutionary war.
Ian: What? What is it?
Lucy: It's just Van Gogh. It's Kevin's. Could I --
Lucy: Thanks. Just come here. I know how hard this is for you, and I know it's not because of Ian and not me and Ian. It is because of me and Kevin.
Victor: We don't need to talk about this --
Lucy: Yes, we do. I have to talk to you about this. I'm sorry. I -- I'm sorry for everything that happened, and what I'm most sorry for is I -- I didn't want to disappoint you. I'm sorry that I -- I know I've disappointed you. And I -- it will kill me to know how much.
Jack: Look, I'm not sorry I'm here with Reese. I'm just sorry you walked in. Besides, what do you expect after what happened between us, huh?
Tess: Better. Jack, I expect better.
Jack: What are you doing here anyway? I thought you already went back to him.
Tess: You come first, Jack. You always have and you always will.
Jack: Well, actions speak louder than words.
Tess: What happens to me now, Jack? What happens to us?
Jack: There is no us. Not anymore.
Tess: Your life's with her now?
Jack: Just passing time, that's all.
Tess: Instead of being in love -- what we had?
Jack: What are you talking about? You're with another guy.
Tess: Please, Jack --
Jack: No, no. It hurts too much.
Tess: Please, Jack, let me fix it. I can help you.
Elizabeth: Truth be told, I have been avoiding you, Joshua.
Joshua: Oh. Well, because you slammed the door in my face the last time I came sniffing around you.
Elizabeth: Well, yes.
Joshua: I realize why you did that. You thought you'd been cured, defanged, unvamped. I understand. Really, I do, my sweet, but you see, you were wrong. You're still one of us, and what you have to do is to learn to live with it.
Elizabeth: I hate this. It's just I would rather be dead. I actually tried killing myself.
Joshua: Of course, you failed at that, too. What you have to learn to do is just you have to relax and enjoy the benefits.
Joshua: One thing, we never grow old, and we have this insatiable appetite for passion.
Elizabeth: Ok, I know, I know. I didn't say that everything was bad, but -- speaking of things that never grow old, but got old real quick, how's -- how's your friend Caleb?
Joshua: Well, you know, the same old tricks. You know his motto -- "eternity and endless women," with every tick of the clock --
Elizabeth: Ok -- ok, just -- I know you keep telling me about his affairs, hoping to turn me completely agagainst him, but I asked you a simple question -- how is he? What is the truth?
Joshua: You want the brutal truth? He never loved you. He had many lovers -- before you, during you, and after you.
Elizabeth: You know what? Never mind. I really don't care anyway.
Joshua: Of course you do. Especially with what I am going to propose to you -- give you the chance to get even with Mr. Caleb Morley -- or should I say the artist previously known as Stephen Clay.
Joshua: I hear your lovely daughter, Alison, and the slayer Rafe and their little gaggle of tedious friends are planning to attack Stephen. What we need to know is --
Elizabeth: You honestly think that I'm going to spy on my daughter for you?
Joshua: I have absolutely no doubt that you will.
Rafe: So you say you want to help us get rid of Caleb. How?
Kevin: My expertise in dealing with the pathology of the twisted mind. I know Caleb's pretzel really well.
Alison: Why would you want to help us now? What's in it for you?
Kevin: Getting my daughter back, Alison. I'll do anything I have to to make that happen.
Rafe: Meaning you'll get rid of Tess?
Kevin: You want to get rid of Caleb. So what? You know, getting my daughter back and getting rid of the pointy-tooth fairy is a goal that we can all share, isn't it? And for the record, I don't want to destroy Tess at all. I want my daughter back. I want Livvie back. All of her, not this stranger that Tess is. I want the person that Tess is only a part of. And my daughter, the person you used to call your best friend, deserves to exist as a complete person, all of her.
Rafe: Well, you're not exactly the person you used to be, either.
Alison: Rafe --
Rafe: No, you know what? I don't know what side you're on, all right? Not after all the people you hurt, especially Lucy. For all I know, this could be just one big trick.
Kevin: Sounds like a dismissal.
Alison: Kevin, why don't I show you the door.
Kevin: No, really, I can see it from here. I think I'll find my way out. At least I tried. I' done everything that --
Rafe: Hey, get your hands off that!
Alison: Wait, wait, wait. What? What do you think that is, Kevin?
Kevin: I know what this is. Can't you see that?
Rafe: What do you see?
Kevin: There's a message here.
Victor: Lucy, I'm not disappointed in you. I -- it's -- it's more complex. It's --
Lucy: What? What is it?
Victor: It's life, that's all. You are entitled to every bit of happiness you can find. It's just that when I see you and Ian together, all I can think of is --
Victor: I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do. I don't know who he is, I've lost my son, and -- and I don't know why. I don't know -- as a parent, you think --
Lucy: I know. I'm sorry.
Victor: Well, I haven't always been the best parent, the best father to -- to Monk, but in the past few years, I -- I've worked very hard, and the past few years have been so good --
Lucy: They were. They were real good.
Victor: And whenever I think of you, I think of your wedding and the wonderful future that --
Lucy: Please don't do that. I can't think like that anymore. I don't anymore. I tried so hard. I hope you know how hard I tried to make everything right.
Victor: Lucy, I've never been able to blame you, and certainly not now. I know what Monk did, and I know what he's still doing, and --
Ian: That's it!
Lucy: What is it?
Ian: Right here -- the battle of Putnam's field.
Victor: Oh, that's right, Putnam's from 1775. That's right, the legend was that the soldiers who bathed their wounds in this spring were healed.
Lucy: Ok, wait. What you're saying is there was some miraculous hot spring, some healing pool right here in Port Charles?
Victor: Local lore has it that that's why the hospital was established here. I mean, people use to come and bathe in the waters and hope for a cure.
Lucy: So, what else does the book say? Anything else?
Ian: Nothing. That's all it says. That's all we got.
Lucy: But that's not good. No, we got -- that's not enough. Victor, there's got to be something else, right? I mean, if that's all we got, then we got nothing.
Victor: Maybe --
Lucy: What? What is it? Maybe what?
Victor: Maybe there is something else.
Jack: Look, I know what you wanted. I know you wanted to help, but you can't heal me.
Tess: I can.
Jack: Oh, just like you did Caleb? Tess, come on. What we had was special. Your powers -- they were special until you went and tried to save that monster.
Tess: But he's not a monster.
Jack: Oh, excuse me. Sorry -- your lover.
Jack: Bye, Tess. I just want to live my life without you.
Joshua: Look at it this way. You won't be spying on Alison. You'll just be rooting out information that will help you get revenge on the man who lied to you and abused you.
Elizabeth: That doesn't justify betraying my own daughter.
Joshua: All right. Well, it's like giving Alison the opportunity to help you to get revenge on a man who promised you an eternity of love and then broke his promise to you. That's something that I would never do.
Elizabeth: What, you don't make promises?
Joshua: Never make them, never break them. I don't tell lies. You and I have the same goal, Elizabeth -- we want control.
Joshua: Control of our lives and the lives of certain little insignificants that are buzzing around us. The thing is to keep your eye on the prize. The reward will be unspeakably sweet.
Elizabeth: And all I have to do --
Joshua: Is to watch Alison and Rafe and their merry little band and find out what they're up to. And I promis-- I guarantee you the revenge -- it'll be satisfyingly full on Caleb Morley.
Elizabeth: I do like the sound of that.
Joshua: I had a feeling that you would. And speaking about "satisfyingly full," I recall there were certain little aspects of vampire life that you found rather appealing.
Elizabeth: No, I promised I would never do that again, not with you.
Joshua: Promises, promises. I'm all you have, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: Oh, no. Oh, no, don't. Oh!
Jack: Good-bye, Tess. Hello, whatever.
Reese: You talking to me?
Jack: Reese. Hey. I could use one of these. Is this for me?
Reese: Guess again, baby.
Jack: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. I'm tired of guessing. Now, tell me, where were we?
Reese: Oh, nowhere. You're way too complicated. Way, way too complicated, and that's the last thing I need right now. Ciao.
Jack: Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa. You're kidding me, right?
Reese: Just keep laughing, Jack. Thanks for the beer and the memories. Maybe some other time, if you're lucky.
Tess: Oh, Jack. There's no happy endings for us ever after. Now where do I go? Where do I belong? Nowhere.
Alison: Kevin, what --
Rafe: Shh, shh.
Alison: What is he doing?
Victor: Maybe these will help, but please be very careful. Some of them are quite old.
Lucy: Old? Old what?
Victor: Old maps of the area, drawn long before there was a Port Charles, even at the time of the original village.
Ian: And you think this can help us?
Victor: Well, it couldn't hurt.
Kevin: Here. It's finished.
Alison: With what? What is that?
Rafe: It's a good question. You say this is some sort of message?
Kevin: There it is.
Alison: Oh, there what is? I don't understand.
Rafe: Yeah, but what is this? What -- what do you see here? What do you -- what do you think this leads to?
Kevin: I don't know. The notes just jumped into my head, and I saw this.
Ian: This is like looking at a needle in a haystack. There's no pools or any springs.
Victor: These are the only maps I've got.
Lucy: Wait a minute. What -- what is this?
Lucy: It's some sort of fancy writing, but -- look at that. It's not in english. What could that be?
Victor: You're right, Lucy. It's not english. It's dutch.
[Speaking dutch] It means "place of healthy waters." It must mean that the hot springs is there. You found it.
Lucy: Found -- there? But where? I mean, you can't tell because, look, there's a piece missing.
Stay tuned for scenes from the next "Port Charles: Surrender."
On the next "Port Charles" --
Joshua: Then it's time you put on your best mommy-dearest face and pay little Alison and Rafe a visit.
Lucy: Do you really think there could be some sort of healing spring for vampires under Caleb's building?
Ian: There's only one way to find out.
Caleb: I'm going to make you feel better.
