Chris: All right, here we go. You're so anxious to see your surprise.

Livvie: No, wait, wait. First I've got a surprise for you.

Frank's voice: I'm so sorry I never paid more attention to you back then.

Karen: That's just what you needed -- somebody else to take care of.

Frank: No. No, I would have told you how beautiful you were, how special.

Karen: So, would you have taken me to your prom?

Frank: You bet.

[Telephone rings]

Karen: Hello?

Frank: What are you doing tonight?

Karen: Well, what did you have in mind?

Frank: Did anyone tell you you're nosy? If you must know, I'm taking you somewhere special.

Karen: Where?

Frank: And you're pushy. Just put yourself in my hands.

Karen: Well, that's a good start, but I'd like to have a few more details just so I can be prepared.

Frank: Just be prepared to have a great time, and be ready at 8:00.

Karen: Ok. Bye.

Ian: Where are you off to?

Arianna: I have a few errands to run.

Ian: Errands? What kind of errands?

Arianna: Well, I was thinking of going by the hospital first and --

Ian: If it's about your medical records, I'll pick them up later. I've got to go in anyway.

Arianna: It's more than that. I need to say my thank-yous in person.

Ian: Your thank-yous?

Arianna: To Gabby and Joe. They've done a lot for me. They've helped me a lot these last months. And Eve, too.

Ian: You can't say good-bye, I'm sorry. Not to anyone.

Eve: I don't know where my head has been lately. I could have sworn I had a change of clothes in my locker.

Gabriela: Your head has been about a million places. And it was no problem getting that stuff for you.

Eve: Well, thank you. I appreciate it. And not just for this. Ian told me what happened in London with Arianna's brother Ben.

Gabriela: I have been trying to put that man out of my head ever since. He scared me half to death.

Eve: Yeah, crazy, violent people tend to do that to everyone.

Gabriela: I'm just glad to be back home.

Eve: Well, because of you and your fast thinking, that man will never be able to set foot in this country again.

Gabriela: Well, thank God for that.

Eve: Boy, you said it. We are safe from that maniac.

[Telephone rings]

Deneice: Sixth floor nurses'. Oh, Dr. Lambert? Yes, she's in the on-call room. She's between shifts. Is this an emergency, or can I help? I see. Well, I'd be happy to take a message for Dr. Lambert and have her give you a call back.

Ben: No, thanks. I'll -- I'll call back later.

Eve: I mean, when I heard about how you ran into Ben -- you know what? I am tired of looking over my shoulder and waiting for bad news like him to pop out from nowhere and ruin everything. I have made a decision.

Gabriela: What's that?

Eve: I am going to concentrate on happily ever after. I mean, even Arianna's going to get her happy ending.

Gabriela: Well, we all deserve it.

Eve: Exactly. And I am not going to wait around and let thoughts of Ben make me doubt my own happiness.

Gabriela: Wish I could just flip a switch and stop thinking about him.

Eve: Well, I don't think that you have anything to worry about. The only person that Ben is after is Arianna, and the bottom line is Ian is not going to let him hurt any of us.

Arianna: I have to say something to Eve. I can't just disappear.

Ian: The only way to keep you safe is to do just that. And I'll explain it to Joe, I'll explain it to Eve and Gabby. But they can't know where you're going. They can't even know when you're leaving. If you're going to run in secret, you can't say goodbye to people.

Arianna: Not even to you?

Ian: Victor's coming to get you in the middle of the night.

Arianna: So you can say you woke up and I was gone.

Ian: It's the only way.

Arianna: Like I never existed.

Ian: That's not true. You're very real to me.

Arianna: So this is it? After tonight, I won't see you again?

Ian: Not likely, no.

Arianna: Then this is goodbye? Just like that? Just goodbye?

Chris: Nice surprise.

Livvie: I'm glad you liked it.

Chris: Are you ready for yours?

Livvie: No, not yet.

Kevin: Lucy, get over here before they see us.

Lucy: No. Shh. I want to hear what's going on.

Kevin: There's nothing to hear. They're kissing. Come on.

Lucy: I can't, Doc. I want to -- whoa.

Chris: Is something wrong?

Livvie: No, I'm just -- I'm ready for my surprise now.

Chris: All right. Well, the other day I got to thinking about how busy you're going to be once you start the pre-med program.

Livvie: Yeah.

Chris: Eight years of 24/7. No time to kick back and relax.

Livvie: Well, that's a bargain I'm willing to make to become a doctor.

Chris: I know that. But, you know, I wanted you to have a great experience before you get into all that -- all that work. You know, a little something that would, you know, create some memories to help you through those long nights of studying.

Livvie: Paris?

Chris: Two tickets.

Livvie: Oh, my God. This is so --

Lucy: Paris. Oh, my goodness.

Kevin: Careful.

Lucy: That worm. Do you know what he's doing? He's using that Paris thing. Look at this line right here. "But as much as I want to see Paris and sit in that little cafe and look out at the most romantic city on the planet --" see what he's doing?

Kevin: That manipulating son of a --

Lucy: Doc, listen, we can't do this. We can't just stand here and let him play her like that.

Kevin: No, wait, wait, wait. Lucy -- Lucy, we have to let Livvie find this out on her own.

Lucy: Are you nuts?

Kevin: I promised her. Just think. Livvie, I know you can do this. You can see through Chris. I know you can do this. You can see through Chris. I know you can do this. You can see through Chris. I know you can do this.

Livvie: God, I -- I can't believe this. I have always dreamt of seeing Paris.

Chris: Really? So I guessed right on where to take you.

Livvie: Yeah, you don't know how right. It's like you're reading my mind. No one has ever --

Chris: Never what?

Livvie: Known me so well -- so much better than anyone has ever known me.

Chris: I hope I can make you happier than anyone ever has, too.

Livvie: You do, Chris. You do.

Lucy: Oh, yuck.

Kevin: Are they kissing again?

Lucy: Again and again and again and again. That's all they're doing is kissing.

Chris: Ok, hold on, hold on. Save some of those for when we're staring off the rooftops in Paris, ok?

Livvie: Oh, there will be plenty left over for Paris. But tonight all we need is each other, Chris.

Gabriela: Well, this has been fun, but I got to get back to work.

Eve: Ok. I'll see you.

Gabriela: Yeah, see you later.

Eve: Bye.

Gabriela: Bye.

Frank: Thanks, Deneice. I'll let her know. Hey.

Eve: Hey.

Frank: There's a message for you at the desk, but nothing urgent, so I'm top priority. Did you get it?

Eve: Gabby just dropped it off, and I think it's what you want. Take a look.

Frank: Yes, it sure is. I owe you for this.

Eve: Ok, then tell me what the big surprise is.

Frank: All I'm saying is I've got something really far out planned.

Eve: Far out?

Frank: Yeah.

Eve: What, did we go back to the seventies all of a sudden?

Frank: Something like that.

Eve: Well, whatever you two are up to, it must be something really good because I haven't seen Karen this happy in a long time.

Frank: Can you believe we've known each other all these years and never really got together?

Eve: Till now.

Frank: After half an eternity.

Eve: I know exactly how that feels, believe me. Well, listen, tell me what the surprise is, or I will strangle you.

Frank: I am sorry, but I've got to get home and change. But thank you for this.

Eve: Ok.

Frank: All right.

Eve: Oh, my God.

Ian: I wish there were some other way.

Arianna: So do I. But there isn't. I understand.

Ian: I'm sorry.

Arianna: We did have some good times, though.

Ian: Yeah, we did.

Arianna: Like that day we took all those pictures of us.

Ian: We had a good laugh, didn't we?

Arianna: Yeah. I know I can't take much along, but this scrapbook we made to fool Immigration -- I'll keep it forever.

Ian: Arianna --

Arianna: We had some tough times, too, I know. But when I look back at this --

Ian: You can't take the scrapbook. You can't. Not a single picture. Nothing that that could give you away. The people you'll be meeting in your new life -- they can't know about this, they can't know about us. It could all start to unravel.

Arianna: Maybe -- maybe just one picture?

Ian: No, I'm sorry.

Arianna: You're right. It would be bad.

Ian: But just remember that you'll always have these pictures right up here. Right here.

Arianna: I'll never forget you.

Livvie: Come on.

Chris: Hmm? Where are we going?

Livvie: Well, this is the way to the bedroom, isn't it?

Kevin: I'm just going to go in there and kill him.

Lucy: No, you are not, Doc. You can't go do something crazy.

Kevin: Crazy? Oh, that's good coming from you, miss bribe them and break in. Besides, what's so crazy if I just go in there and eviscerate the little --

Lucy: No. Listen, you cannot go in and gut Chris like a fish. That would be way too messy. Let me think of something, Doc. You know I always have plans. I'll make a plan. I'll think of one right now. I'm making a plan. Thinking. Thinking, thinking. Doc, that's perfect. What a great idea. Ok. What do we do? Doc --

Kevin: Find a place to hide the diary.

Lucy: Diary, diary. Oh.

Kevin: Anywhere. Hurry, hurry, hurry.

Lucy: The desk. I'll -- I'll put it in a desk, and I'll leave the drawer like that. She's bound to see it. Livvie's just got to see it. You think she'll see it, right?

[Smoke detector beeps]

Lucy: Oh, my goodness. What do we do? What do we do?

Kevin: We go, we go. Come on, come on, come on.

Karen: Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Frank: Come on, come on.

Karen: Come on. Where are you taking me?

Frank: Just a little farther. Right here.

Karen: Here?

Frank: Ok. Sit down.

Karen: Ok. Can I look now?

Frank: Ok, just -- ok. Behold.

Karen: What -- what is this?

Frank: This is your dream date, the one you never had in high school.

Karen: Frank, this is amazing.

Frank: It's -- it's the night of the big game, and you're my girl, so of course you have the best seat in the house.

Karen: Mm-hmm.

Frank: And it's kind of cold out, just enough that you --

Karen: Oh, yeah, uh-huh.

Frank: You need my arms around you.

Karen: Mm-hmm.

Frank: You give me a kiss for luck. And I'm down there on the field.

Karen: Oh, yes.

Frank: I look up here. I see your face. And I know that we are connected. And I know that there is always someone out there rooting for me.

Karen: You scored a winning run that night.

Frank: Well, touchdown, yeah, and I've got the letter to prove it.

Karen: Yeah. Oh. You know what? I could almost hear the cheers. And look at the way that gorgeous cheerleader, the one that had the hots for you --

Frank: The blonde bomb, Missy Hanson.

Karen: Yes, yes, yes. Yeah.

Frank: Mm-hmm.

Karen: Look at the way she's looking at me. Oh, could that be envy I see on her perfect face?

Frank: So how do you like the view from up here?

Karen: Great, now that I'm sitting here with you.

Frank: But, wait -- there's more.

Karen: There's more?

Frank: Yes. For the dance afterward --

Karen: The dance?

Frank: I am taking the prettiest girl in Port Charles, who has just been crowned prom queen.

Karen: Prom queen?

Frank: Yeah.

Karen: Me?

Frank: Too much?

Karen: No, don't you dare touch it. This prom queen can kick butt, ok?

Frank: And then, after the dance, you and your crown and me and my cool jacket will drive up to make-out point.

Karen: You're pretty sure of yourself, Scanlon.

Frank: But I am not sure about this, if this -- this amazing woman who's in my arms, who lights up my life, who makes me feel like a prince, will agree to go steady with me. See, I've -- I've wanted to -- to ask you for a while. But the -- the time had to be perfect. So what do you say, Wexler? You want to be my girl?

Karen: Yes, I -- I do. I do. I am.

[Smoke detector beeps]

Kevin: Out, out, out.

Lucy: I'm going, I'm going.

Chris: What is going on?

Livvie: I think it's the smoke alarm.

Chris: Well, yeah, it's the smoke alarm. Do you smell anything, though?

Livvie: I don't know. I think, yeah, a little bit.

Chris: All right, well, go open a window just in case.

Lucy: Rats. She's going for the window. Go the other way.

Kevin: Go to the desk. Go to the desk.

Lucy: Desk. Desk.

Chris: I think the battery's run out.

[Beeping stops]

Chris: Oh, finally. I think there's another battery in the desk. Get it for me, will you? Can't believe this. These things are so annoying. They get so loud and --

Livvie: You mind explaining how my diary made it to your apartment?

Lucy: Doc, we did it. We did it. She found it. She found it.

Kevin: Shh. Come on, let's go.

Ian: Starting over's a very hard thing to do. But it's a good thing, I promise you, because very soon, you're going to be sitting with your friends, enjoying your new life and your new freedom. I'd bet money on it.

Arianna: But you won't know, will you?

Ian: What time is it right now?

Arianna: 9:15. Why?

Ian: Ok, 9:15. Exactly one year from now at 9:15, I'll be sitting in the Recovery Room drinking my usual.

Arianna: Irish whiskey, neat.

Ian: Yeah. Now, you call me. You call me from wherever you are. You call me at the Recovery Room where I'll be sitting at 9:15, drinking a large glass of Irish whiskey with no ice. And you can tell me about how your life is going.

Arianna: You mean it?

Ian: I mean it. So what do you say? We got a deal? Say yes.

Arianna: Yes. Oh, Ian, I'm going to miss you so much.

Ian: I'm going to miss you, too.

Gabriela: Hey, Eve, I forgot to tell you --

Eve: It's too late.

Gabriela: I found it on the floor of your room.

Eve: Was it already broken like this?

Gabriela: Yeah. I didn't want to leave it in case the maid came to clean up. It looked valuable.

Eve: It is, to Ian and me. It's a gift from a friend on Tirama Island.

Gabriela: Where you saved that boy.

Eve: Ian and I had some of the happiest times ever there together. The boy's father, the chief of the island, warned us before we left. He said that there could be trouble for us.

Gabriela: So he gave it to you.

Eve: Actually, his wife, Maya, sent this to us as a good luck charm, you know, to ward off whatever bad spirits, bad luck. But now how is it supposed to do that?

Gabriela: Hey, you know what? I know just where to take it. There's a shop that does repairs on things just like that. They'll fix it right up for you.

Eve: Thanks.

Gabriela: Listen, nothing is going to keep you and Ian from having a wonderful life together. I just know it.

Eve: You're right, Gabby. You are really right.

Gabriela: There's a phone book at the desk, so I'll leave the phone number and the address in your box.

Eve: I appreciate it.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Karen: "I need to talk you. I'm in big trouble."

Eve: I'm glad that she'll finally be safe, but I'm really glad that we'll finally be together.

Livvie: It is so over!

Chris: Well, in case you weren't paying attention, I call the shots.
