Alison: So, Jack, you hungry, or what?

Jamal: Are you kidding? After saving the bike shop from being trashed by those lowlifes, my man is starving.

Jack: Hey, hey, hey. I just ran off a couple of slime balls. No big deal.

Jamal: No, sorry, man. We owe you.

Alison: Yeah. See, that's what happens, Jack. When you do a good deed, people are very grateful.

Jamal: Mm-hmm.

Alison: And believe me, after hearing about the way you treated Livvie, I knew it was going to take quite a bit to be joining your fan club.

Jack: You know what, Alison? Thanks for reminding me. I really appreciate that.

Alison: You're welcome. I know.

[Knock on door]

Alison: Yeah, I do.

Jamal: Hey, don't let it get to you, man. I mean, things might work out for you guys, you know.

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, but I think right now, the best thing for me is to just kind of lay low, stay as far away from Livvie as I can manage. And that way, I won't have to get into any trouble with her.

Livvie: Hi, Alison.

Alison: Well, Livvie, speak of the devil.

[Knock on door]

Chris: Kim, come in. So, what's been going on?

Kim: Well, there's not much to tell yet. I've only been on the job a few days, and Estelle keeps me pretty busy.

Chris: Ok, ok. Well, you know where Livvie is now? I mean, you know that much.

Kim: She got all dressed up, very nice, very conservative.

Chris: And then?

Kim: She left to see a friend.

Chris: She did?

Kim: Is this the kind of information you're looking for? Dr. Ramsey?

Chris: Yeah -- yes, yes. It's just I want you to scrape together anything you can, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you. I need to know Livvie better than she knows herself. Before long, it'll be like I'm reading her mind.

Mac: Kevin?

Kevin: Keep it down.

Mac: What are you doing here?

Kevin: I got called to try and talk the jumper in, but it's not just any jumper. It's Lucy.

Mac: Lucy? Well, what are we doing --

Kevin: No, no, no, no, no, no. Wait, wait, wait. Let me.

Mac: Kevin, after everything the two of you have been through lately, just seeing you might send her over.

Kevin: I know. I thought about that. That's why I held back, but I know her. Just give me a chance.

Mac: All right, you got it, but if you need me, I'm right here.

Kevin: Lucy?

Lucy: Doc.

Livvie: Can I come in?

Alison: Only if you really want to.

Livvie: What do you mean if I want to? It's freezing. Oh.

Alison: So, Livvie, what's up with the outfit? You kind of look like you're going to one of my nana's, like, Fundraiser for Fossils parties or something.

Livvie: You mean sophisticated.

Jamal: She means old.

Livvie: Oh -- actually, I'm going to the opera with Chris.

Jamal: What, you're meeting him here?

Livvie: No. Um -- I came by to -- to borrow something from Alison. Remember? Those earrings that I really like, the ones I always wear.

Alison: Oh -- yes. Those ones, yeah. I'm sure they're around here somewhere. Well, why don't we go find those?

Livvie: Ok.

Jamal: Here's your chance, man -- kiss and make up on a platter, dude. Come on. She walked right in.

Jack: Yeah, I saw her face when she did.

Jamal: Well, you're wrong, man. Take a chance, man. Just give it a shot, dude.

Alison: Oh, I know where they are. They're underneath the bed.

Livvie: What? Alison --

Alison: Livvie, you have never borrowed earrings from me, ever. Now, would you mind telling me what's going on, and the real story, please? What are you doing here?

Chris: You have any idea who this person was Livvie went to see?

Kim: I think her name was Alison.

Chris: Uh-huh. Ok, and she just left? She didn't mention our date?

Kim: She started to get dressed for it earlier, so at first, I thought she was excited.

Chris: Wait, wait -- at first?

Kim: Well, after a while, she got quiet, like something was on her mind. Then suddenly, she was out the door.

Chris: You have any idea what was bothering her?

Kim: Like what?

Chris: I need something -- something that I -- some way I can get her to look at me the way she was looking at me yesterday when I took care of Jack. Look, I need to get her to trust me to do anything I tell her to do.

Kim: Well, I don't know if this will make any difference.

Chris: What is it?

Kim: It's an ad for a band she really likes. They're playing at Jake's tonight. So she cut it out of the paper, only --

Chris: Only she remembered that she had tickets to go to the opera with me.

Kim: She threw it away. I dug it out, in case you wanted to buy her their CD.

Chris: Great. Good work. Keep at it.

Kim: Well, I better be getting back to Estelle before she wakes up. Ok?

Chris: Yeah, go ahead. Do that. "Brad Masters and the Troublemakers." I have tickets to "Tosca" and she'd rather listen to this garbage. Ramsey, you're a genius.

Chris: Ramsey, you're a genius.

Kevin: Lucy, don't say anything. Just for a second, listen to me. I know you're upset about a lot of things. But we can talk to each other, can't we?

Lucy: You want to talk to me?

Kevin: Of course. I'd never turn my back on you. And we'll get through this.

Lucy: Doc, Sarah -- it's Sarah who needs your help.

Kevin: Sarah?

Lucy: Yes -- the woman on the ledge.

Kevin: What?

Lucy: I've been trying to talk to her and help her.

Kevin: Sarah?

Sarah: What? Who are you?

Lucy: Sarah, listen, this is Kevin. He's a very, very good friend of mine, and -- and he really wants to help you. Sarah's husband Paul just died.

Sarah: I just want to be with him wherever he is. I don't want to be alone.

Kevin: Boy, do I know that feeling. That's the one that grows inside you until it threatens to smother you and put you out of your misery, right?

Sarah: But it never does.

Kevin: No. It never does. It just takes you to the edge, gasping for air with your life flashing in front of you.

Sarah: Well, it'll stop if I jump.

Kevin: Do you really think that's what Paul would want for you? Sarah, do you remember all the other times in your life that were dark? When you thought you'd never laugh again? And you thought that's the way it would always be? The truth is things do change. Sooner or later, they always do. And things happen the way they do for a reason -- to teach us something, to put us on a path that we never knew was there.

Kevin: The universe has a plan, Sarah. We may not always understand it. But we have to trust it.

Sarah: Why?

Kevin: Because when we do, the world starts to make sense again. Let me help you, Sarah. Give me your hand, and I promise you, you won't be alone. Give me your hand. That's it. That a girl. I -- I got you. I got you. Oh. Ok, ok. Ok. You're going to be all right. You're going to be ok.

Colleen: Dr. Collins?

Kevin: Sarah, these are two very good friends of mine. This is Colleen, and my best friend, Mac.

Colleen: Are you cold, Sarah? Come here, come here.

Kevin: Five milligrams diazepam Q.I.D.

Colleen: Sure.

Kevin: You wouldn't mind taking Sarah down to the ER just for clearance, would you?

Colleen: No.

Kevin: I'll catch up to you in a little while, ok?

Sarah: Thank you.

Mac: Great job as always, man. Great job. I'll catch up with you later.

Kevin: Ok. Whew.

Lucy: Doc?

Kevin: Oh, Lucy.

Lucy: Ok, let's hear it. Did you honestly think I would commit suicide because I wasn't pregnant with your baby?

Brad: Sorry, man, but I'm going to pass. I know you got some real pull in this town, but --

Chris: You know, Brad, I got a thousand bucks here that says you'll reconsider. Get 500 up front, 500 when the favor's done. What do you say now?

Brad: I say you're on.

Alison: Just admit it. You stopped by to see how you know who is after he was jumped yesterday.

Livvie: Ok. Ok, I was just -- I was a little concerned.

Alison: "A little concerned?" Please, you are so sprung.

Jamal: Yo, Ali? Hey, come here for a second, would you? I just got this great idea.

Alison: Ok. Uh -- here's your earrings, Livvie, although, I still think they are way too cool for the opera. Ok. So, what'd you come up with without me?

Jamal: So what do you think about bringing in Jack with us?

Alison: To live?

Jamal: No, no, no -- as a partner.

Jack: Yo, you mean the shop? Are you serious?

Jamal: Yeah, why not, man? We need good workers who put in the time for low money at first. And then, we can give him a cut of the profits.

Alison: Well, yeah --

Jamal: You know?

Alison: Because we do have that room in the back you could use as your place.

Jamal: There you go.

Jack: I -- I don't know what to say.

Jamal: Ah! Welcome to the family, boy.

Jack: Oh, come here. I might as well give you --

Alison: Ah!

Jack: Oh.

Alison: God.

Livvie: Hey. Congratulations, Jack, on your new plans.

Alison: Yeah, well, just wait until the place really gets open because we're going to be raking in the money.

Jamal: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on, it's just a garage. That's it, you know.

Alison: Well, it might be just a garage now, Jamal, but I happen to have a few ideas of my own.

Jamal: Oh, boy.

Alison: This is going to be the coolest spot in the town. You know, people can, like, hang out there. Maybe we could get an espresso machine.

Livvie: And a jukebox would be a really good idea.

Alison: Yeah, music, we need music. Maybe some live music. Jamal, you know that guy who sells all the electronic stuff for real cheap.

Jamal: Yeah, but --

Jack: And why don't we put a photo booth in the corner?

Livvie: Now, that is a great idea.

Jack: You -- you think?

Livvie: Well, why not?

Jack: Yeah, well, why not?

Alison: Ahem -- ok. I'm sorry to interrupt this idea session here, but, Livvie, don't you have to go somewhere? Aren't you going to be late for that fat lady with the horns?

Jack: Yeah, yeah. We wouldn't want to miss that, would we?

Livvie: I'm sure Chris is wondering where I am. I'm already late. So --

Jack: Are -- are you sure that you have to go?

Livvie: Yeah, I'm sure. Um -- yeah. I got to run. But congratulations on the new plans, everybody, and thanks for the earrings.

Jamal: All right, thanks.

Jack: Livvie? Wait. Whew -- ooh. Don't go.

Lucy: Did you really think I would commit suicide over you?

Kevin: Lucy, I got a call that there was a jumper on the roof. I came out here and I saw you. I know how you've been feeling. It's really not that much of a reach.

Lucy: No. No, you're right. Lucy's so fragile these days and Lucy always jumps to conclusions, so why not figure, yep, Lucy might just jump off a roof?

Kevin: Ok, fine. I jump to conclusions myself sometimes.

Lucy: Sometimes?

Kevin: Wouldn't you rather go inside and talk about this? I mean, you must be a little shaken up.

Lucy: Who says I'm shaken up?

Kevin: All right, fine. I'm shaken up and I'm cold.

Lucy: Well, thanks for sharing your feelings, but I don't need you to tell me what I'm feeling. You don't even know a tenth of what I'm feeling.

Kevin: Then teach me! Lucy, tell me what's going on in your mind -- starting with why you're raking me over because I walked through the door and made an honest mistake. Because?

Lucy: Because -- because -- I -- I can't have a baby, ever.

Kevin: What do you mean?

Lucy: I cannot ever have children. It's impossible. Are you satisfied?

Kevin: Since when?

Lucy: Since I went to see Dr. Neumann.

Kevin: Is she sure?

Lucy: That the disease Rachel gave me did the trick? Yeah. She's sure, and it's over. It's impossible. That's what she said. I can never, ever have children. It is impossible.

Kevin: And that's the word she used?

Lucy: I don't know what words -- I don't remember exactly what words she used. I don't know! But I got the message loud and clear. I can't have them, ever. The odds were against me from the beginning, but now I have -- I have no odds. It's over, so all this dreaming and hoping and planning and wishing -- it was just all a -- a waste, a waste.

Kevin: Oh, Lucy, I'm so sorry.

Lucy: No, it's ok. It's -- you know what? I don't want that. I don't want that look on your face. I don't want the pity from you. I don't want anything from you. I just want to tell you that you're not always right. You cannot always help everyone and you can't always fix everything. Ok?

Mac: Hey. Kevin, great job today. Impressive as hell.

Kevin: Thanks.

Mac: In fact, you know what? You got me thinking about starting something new at the department -- kind of a psychiatric swat team.

Kevin: Friend of mine in Denver set up something like that.

Mac: Really? Think about it, you know. A group of psychiatric specialists on call, ready to go? I mean, it might make a difference next time we face an emergency like this.

Kevin: It's a good thought.

Mac: But you were thinking about something else, weren't you?

Kevin: No. No. No, it's just --

Mac: It's just -- it's just what, Kevin? Come on, are you going to tell me or do I have to drag it out of you?

Kevin: Lucy just told me that she can't have children. Ever.

Mac: Are you sure?

Kevin: A baby of her own is the one thing she's wanted more than anything in the world. You should've seen the look in her eyes when she told me. Watching a dream like that die off forever.

Mac: You know what, Kevin? I -- I get the feeling that Lucy might not be the only one who had a dream die on her tonight.

Kevin: What do you mean?

Mac: Come on, mate. Bottom of your heart -- I mean, weren't you always kind of hoping that you and Lucy might start a family one day?

Jack: Livvie, don't go.

Livvie: Jack, I have to. I made plans.

Jack: Oh, come on. You don't even like the opera. I mean, look at you all starched up like some middle-aged doctor's wife. That's not you. You're 10 times more beautiful when you're just in jeans and a t-shirt.

Livvie: Yeah, well, I like the way I look.

Jack: Or maybe it's just that Chris likes the way you look.

Livvie: And so what if he does? Chris has really great taste.

Jack: But it's not you. Livvie, Chris wants a trophy. He doesn't give a damn about you.

Livvie: No, you are wrong, Jack.

Jack: No, I'm not. And you know it.

Chris: Hey, guys.

Livvie: Chris.

Jack: What are you doing here?

Chris: Picking up my date.

Livvie: God, how'd you -- how'd you know where I was?

Chris: Kim told me. I hope you don't mind me showing up here, but I wanted you to meet a buddy of mine before he has to get to the club.

Brad: Ramsey?

Livvie: Club?

Chris: Hey.

Brad: Hey.

Chris: Yeah, this is the friend I told you about. Livvie, this is a good buddy of mine --

Livvie: Brad Masters.

Chris: You know him?

Livvie: Yeah. I have every one of your CDs.

Chris: You're kidding. Oh, no, we've been friends for a long time.

Brad: Yeah. Ramsey's my man in Port Charles -- helped put the band together, got us started.

Livvie: You're serious?

Brad: Well, there wouldn't be a Brad Masters and the Troublemakers without him.

Jack: Oh.

Brad: So, can you help me out here, Livvie? I mean, we don't want to play without him out front. You guys can bag the Puccini, can't you?

Chris: Your call.

Brad: You want me to beg?

Livvie: No. No, no, no. You don't have to. I've been dying to see one of your concerts. It's just I -- oh -- I don't want to disappoint Chris.

Chris: Oh, no, no. I mean, we can listen to the swooping sopranos anytime. Come on, I'll run you home. You can change.

Brad: Great. So tickets will be at the door, and don't worry -- we won't play a note till you get there.

Chris: All right.

Brad: Ok? See you then.

Chris: All right. Thanks, man.

Livvie: Jeez, that is incredible!

Jack: Uh -- yeah. That's exactly the word for it. You guys have a good time.

Jamal: Hey, so where's Livvie?

Jack: Headed off with Chris.

Alison: No way.

Jack: And you know that stuff you said about us hooking back up together again?

Jamal: Yeah.

Jack: Well, forget about it. She made her choice -- loud and clear.

Chris: So, you're a fan?

Livvie: God, only the biggest -- and the band wouldn't even exist if it weren't for you?

Chris: Ah, well, Brad was overdoing it -- a little bit, anyway. But no big deal. Listen, let's get going and I'll tell you the whole story on the way.

Livvie: Gosh! Giving up the opera for the chance to see my favorite band? I cannot believe it. It's almost like you read my mind or something.

Chris: Almost.

Lucy: Hi. You're very lucky.

Woman: Thank you. Yes. We are.

Lucy: She's absolutely beautiful, like a little miracle.

Man: Good night.

Lucy: Good night.

[Baby cries]

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Kevin: You lost one dream. That doesn't mean you have to give up on them all.

Lucy: Just the ones I know I can't have -- like a baby and you.

Eve: I want you to make love to me right now.
