Port Charles Transcript
Proofread by Boo
Frank: Karen --
Karen: Stay away from me, Frank.
Frank: I can't. I have to make you understand.
Karen: What? What? That you sold your soul for a real estate deal?
Frank: Joshua has vision and big plans for this town. Things are going to be better around here.
Karen: You know, if you believe that, then I really don't know you, Frank. Oh, wait. Wait a minute. Yes, I do -- you're a vampire now!
Frank: I'm the man who loves you. That hasn't changed.
Karen: Only now when you say that you love me forever, there's a whole new spin to it.
Frank: Look, Karen, we can still have a life together, a better life.
Karen: How? Oh, my God. Are you going to turn me, too?
Victor: I've made a few calls to some of the power structures in town, contacts about some of these properties that you need to buy.
Joshua: Good, Victor. I knew you were the perfect man for the job. You keep up the good work. Thank you.
Victor: Well, thank you Joshua. I -- I really feel as if I have a whole new lease on life -- thanks to you.
Joshua: Hmm. Well, young Jack. What can I do for you?
Jack: It's what I can do for you, sir, if you give me a job.
Joshua: Oh. Ok. I could always use someone to sweep up the floor, take out the garbage.
Jack: That's not what I had in mind. You need someone to run this place.
Joshua: Send me your resume, and I'll get right back to you.
Jack: Here's my resume.
Joshua: This is my wallet.
Alison: This is like a really bad nightmare, something that I wish I could just wake up from.
Rafe: All right, just stop, please. I mean, we don't even know for sure if Joshua's after you.
Alison: Once he got the ring from Livvie, she was defenseless, so there was nothing to stop him from making her his bride.
Rafe: Uh-huh. But you're right, he didn't.
Alison: No, he didn't. What's going on? Whoa. Wait, whoa. Where are we going?
Rafe: Well, Joshua can't get to you if he can't find you. That's why we're leaving Port Charles -- tonight.
Caleb: What do you mean, you can't?
Livvie: I can't do it.
Caleb: You can. Make me whole again.
Livvie: I want that more than anything. But I've ruined everything.
Caleb: What happened? What happened, Olivia?
Caleb: Hey, listen to me. I need you to tell me why you can't turn me. Tell me!
Livvie: Because if I do, I'll kill you!

Casey: Ok, boss, you got me, all right? I'm stumped. Ok, I know -- I know you sent me down here to do a job, and it's getting really complicated, ok? Look, I know I'm a guardian angel, all right? Whose back do I have? Huh? Is it Lucy? Am I supposed to save Lucy? Or is it Ricky? Is, is he the reason why I'm here? Because if he is the reason why I'm here, then you know how I feel about Ricky, right? Look, I know there's a reason for me being here, boss. I just -- I wish you'd hook me up with some bigger signs, man. Look -- why am I here? Huh? Who am I supposed to save?
Jamal: Maybe you're supposed to save the whole damn town.
Frank: Don't look at me like that, Karen, like I'm some kind of animal.
Karen: Well, you're scaring me, ok?
Frank: I won't turn you. I'd never do that unless you asked me to.
Karen: You think that's something I'd want? I'm out of here.
Frank: Oh, so that's it? You're walking out on me again?
Karen: Do you blame me? It's like you're a magnet for the dark side.
Frank: I had no choice in this. It just happened.
Karen: Well, you have a choice now. You can go join your zombie friends, or you can fight this. If you do, I promise to stay by your side and fight with you, Frank.
Frank: I don't need you to fight for me, just -- just be with me. You have my heart.
Karen: And you're about to lose your soul. How can that be ok with you? You're the man who went back in time for our love. You were my hero. I don't understand why you need shrouds or fangs --
Frank: Because they make me feel stronger, ok, better. Like I'm somebody.
Karen: You were always somebody to me, Frank. I'm just sorry I wasn't enough for you. Goodbye.
Joshua: From your cocky attitude, you're pretty pleased with yourself, aren't you?
Jack: With all your heightened vampire senses, I took your wallet right from under your nose.
Joshua: You went through a lot of trouble to get my attention. What do you want? Do you want your fangs back?
Jack: Not exactly. I've already been down that road before. I like to live fast and die young.
Joshua: Then what can I possibly do for you?
Jack: I've been butting heads with your kind for a while now, and where has it gotten me? Nowhere. Joshua, you're the one who calls the shots these days, and I want to be close to that power. When the train leaves the station, I want to be onboard.
Alison: Wait. No --
Rafe: Come on.
Alison: I -- no. Listen, Joshua is turning this whole town into vampire central. We can't just take off.
Rafe: You know what? If I don't get you out of here, I might as well take you and walk you down the aisle myself and give you away to that creep. Would you like that?
Alison: So you do think that he's coming after me.
Rafe: I don't know. I just don't want to take any chances, all right? Let's go. Please?
Alison: What about Lucy? We can't just leave her.
Rafe: Lucy is a survivor. She'll be fine. She's got Ian.
Alison: Well, there's my mother. My nana would worry to death. And my friends --
Rafe: Ok, ok, ok. Ok, one thing at a time.
Alison: You are the only one who can stop Joshua. You are the only chance anyone has.
Rafe: Right now, all I'm worried about is you. I want to make you safe. So, please, come on.
Alison: No. I'm not leaving.
Rafe: We can't do this. We can't waste any more time, all right?
Alison: This is about me. Do I not get a vote in this at least?
Rafe: No. Look, what do I have to do? Do I have to take you, put you over my shoulder, and carry you out of here? Because I'll do that. Can you please just trust me for a second? Just trust me that I have a plan.
Alison: I do trust you. I do, believe me. But I want to know what the plan is first.
Rafe: On the way. Come on.
Alison: No -- no, now.
Rafe: You are so damn stubborn. Come here. Sit down. Now, listen to me closely.
Caleb: I don't know how turning me will kill me.
Livvie: I did something terrible. And that's why I can't help you now.
Caleb: What happened?
Livvie: I was scared. And I was -- I was really hungry. I thought I was going to die, and Joshua -- offered me some blood.
Caleb: You couldn't help yourself. The urge is too strong.
Livvie: Then he laughed, and he told me that there was something in the blood, that he had put something in there to poison my fangs. Now anyone I bite will die.
Caleb: How do you know Joshua was telling the truth?
Livvie: I don't. But it seems like the kind of thing he would do.
Caleb: No. No, he's just trying to scare you.
Livvie: Well, it worked.
Caleb: Hey -- you listen to me. We are not going to let him stop us from being together.
Livvie: I'm just so afraid I'll hurt you.
Caleb: Fear -- fear is what he's counting on.
Livvie: Oh, Caleb --
Caleb: Give me what I need, sweetheart. Only you can give me my life back.
Casey: Jamal --
Casey: Do not ever sneak up on a girl like that. What is wrong with you?
Jamal: Well, I figured it was safe and all, you talking to God and everything.
Casey: No, no, it doesn't work that way.
Jamal: Oh, I know. I know -- not even angels get to talk to God, right?
Casey: Not my rank, anyway.
Jamal: Whoever you were just now talking to --
Jamal: Did you get any answers? Anything come to you?
Casey: No. About me saving the whole town?
Casey: No. Jamal, we work more on a one-on-one type of situation, ok?
Casey: And I'm still trying to figure out who my one is. Man, is it Lucy? Am I supposed to stay and keep her alive? Or is it Ricky? Am I supposed to stop him, like, keep him from being one of the bloodsuckers? I don't know. I'm not even sure. And since I don't have clue one on which one it is, I'm just probably going to mess up. Mess up and then get yanked back upstairs again, right?
Jamal: You know what I think you don't get, Casey?
Casey: I don't get a lot of things. Ok, what -- what? What do you think? What?
Jamal: I think that you don't get how special you really are.
Joshua: That was quite a stirring speech. I never figured you to be e to be so eloquent.
Jack: Well, people change.
Joshua: But you shouldn't pull a sting on the person who's got all the power, Jack. That's not very smart. You stole from me. You're a common criminal.
Jack: I wouldn't say "common."
Joshua: You tried to make a fool out of me. Not too clever, Jack. I could dispose of you --
jack: But you won't.
Jack: Because I could be useful to you and you wouldn't throw away anything that you could use.
Joshua: That's assuming that I could trust you.
Jack: Joshua, I could have flaunted my little trick in front of your boys, but I didn't.
Joshua: And I should be so grateful for that, why don't I just give you a job? Forget about --
Jack: No, you will hire me because you want this place to be a success. So you're going to need someone from the other side to help you run it and you can't kill me because, well, if I was dead, then I couldn't run your club.
Joshua: Hmm. You got guts and a killer instinct.
Jack: Thank you. That's a compliment coming from you.
Joshua: Do you know what? I'll give you a chance. One false move --
Jack: And you'll bury me.
Jack: Got it.
Joshua: One more thing, Jack. You left my wallet empty.
Jack: Consider it a signing bonus. I'll see you in the A.M., Boss.
Karen: Oh, Frank, how could you do this to us?
Frank: Sorry. Karen can't see what I'm offering her.
Joshua: And I'm interested in your personal problems because --
Frank: You're right. I can't be distracted.
Joshua: Keep your eye on the ball, Frank.
Frank: Yes, sir.
Joshua: Besides, I have a very important job for you.
Alison: So that's your plan?
Rafe: You up for it?
Alison: Yeah, if it's the only way.
Rafe: Well, here's the thing -- I keep trying to think of another way, and it's just not working out. So I'll understand if you want to back out of this, ok?
Alison: No. We're in this together. There's just -- there's just one thing that freaks me out about this.
Rafe: Just one?
Alison: Do we have to go there, of all places?
Rafe: It's the last place any of his evil crew would look.
Caleb: Don't -- don't stop! Don't stop.
Livvie: I have to resist this.
Caleb: That's what he wants. He wants to keep us apart.
Livvie: No, he wants to kill you, and he's going to use me to do it.
Caleb: It won't kill me, it'll save me.
Livvie: I hope Joshua's lying, but your life is too precious to gamble with.
Caleb: Don't you see? As I am now, I might as well be dead.
Livvie: Don't say that. I can't live without you.
Caleb: Do you know what it's like for me to be ordinary? This feeling of helplessness?
Livvie: I remember.
Caleb: I can't go on this way much longer. Being with you, not being able to have you. We -- we have to settle this.
Livvie: Someone's coming.
Caleb: Just what we need -- a volunteer.
Livvie: No, no, no. Please, Caleb, it's too dangerous.
Caleb: Hey! You! It's your old boss. Long time no see.
Man: I don't take orders from you anymore. I work for Mr. Temple now.
Caleb: Well, then consider yourself fired. Go ahead. He's all yours. Go!
Casey: Are you coming on to me?
Jamal: I'm -- whoa. Whoa, whoa. I'm sorry, what did you say? What?
Casey: "You don't know how special you really are, Casey"? Man, if that is not a pickup line, then I don't know what that was.
Jamal: No, no, no, no, no. Stop, stop. It wasn't. It was not, no. What I mean was that there's a lot of evil in the world, ok? There's a lot of evil that ended up in this town.
Jamal: Ok, and if Joshua has it his way, it's going to get a lot worse. What I meant is that for whatever reason that you're here, I don't know, but it means that the good guys haven't given up yet, that there's still hope. That's what I meant to say.
Casey: I never -- I never thought of it that way.
Jamal: Well, think of it that way. Oh -- all right, what was that for?
Casey: That's for being pretty darn special yourself. Thank you, Jamal. I needed that.
Jamal: No problem.
Casey: You are pretty cute, so, you know, I totally understand if you had this thing for me, you know --
Jamal: Oh, Case, Case --
Casey: And that's all good, you know, because --
Jamal: Case, just stop while you're behind, all right?
Jack: Whoa, come on. Give me that back.
Reese: Come get them. Oh! So, you managed to convince Josh?
Jack: Yes, I did. You are looking at the new manager of the Elixir.
Reese: Wow, you don't waste any time.
Jack: Mm-hmm. Vampires aren't the only ones who get what they want.
Reese: Oh, yeah? And what is it that you want? Ooh. I'm not sure if I can trust you yet.
Jack: Oh, yeah, probably not.
Reese: Oh, that makes it interesting.
Jack: Very interesting. And now that I'm working at the club, it could be very profitable, too.
Reese: Oh, I like the sound of that. So, what do we do to celebrate your newfound luck?
Jack: Oh, no, I don't think that that was luck. I played the man, plain and simple.
Reese: Playing -- hmm -- such a good idea. Have I told you how absolutely adorable your wild side is?
Jack: Show me.
Joshua: Not bad for a day's work.
Victor: Incredible day. I ought to be tired, but I'm not. I hate to leave you here all alone. You know, that new sign -- "Elixir" -- that's a new name. It's kind of catchy.
Joshua: I won't be celebrating, not alone, for long.
Victor: Oh, yeah? Somebody special?
Joshua: You could say that.
Victor: Well, she's a very lucky girl. Good night, boss.
Joshua: Good night.
[Door opens and closes]
Joshua: Well. I've got my kingdom. All I need now is my queen. Here's to you, Alison, my future, lovely bride.
Alison: Shouldn't we at least, like, leave a note or something?
Rafe: No. Come on.
Alison: But my nana and Jamal will probably worry.
Rafe: At least you'll be safe, all right? That's what will really matter to them. Now, it's time to go. Let's go.
Alison: Wait. Before, when -- when you asked me to trust you?
Alison: I hope you know I do with my life.
Rafe: Good. Good. You hold onto that thought.
Rafe: All right? Now, hurry up.
Rafe: Come on.
Alison: Ok. Ok, ok.
Frank: They're on the move.
Caleb: So far, so good. He's getting up.
Man: You will pay for this.
Livvie: Is he?
Caleb: He's dead. Hey --
Livvie: Oh, it's true. I'm poison to you. I'm poison to the man I love.
Caleb: Come here. Come here.
Stay tuned for scenes from the next "Port Charles: Desire."
On the next "Port Charles" --
Rafe: All I care about is keeping you safe. I want to keep you away from Joshua and all his goons.
Joshua: What you are going to do is ease Alison into her new lifestyle -- as my wife.
Livvie: I'm afraid.
Caleb: Take the risk.
