Jack: Bike shop.

Jamal: Hey, it's me. Hey, has Zach called?

Jack: No, no. I thought he was meeting you down at the docks.

Jamal: Yeah, yeah. He hasn't shown.

Jack: Well, he couldn't have figured out you were wearing a wire, could he?

Jamal: No, no. He's probably just jerking my chain or something.

Jack: So are you going to wait around?

Jamal: Yeah, well, I have to. Hey, do me a favor -- tell Alison I got hung up, all right?

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, sure.

Jamal: Ok. Hey, and another thing --

Jack: Yeah, I know, I know. I'm sticking around. But remember, I have a date with Livvie later.

Jamal: Yeah, yeah, don't worry. I'll be back in plenty of time.

Jack: All right, man. Well, watch your back.

Jamal: All right. Peace.

Zach: So, thought about my proposition, huh?

Zach: About racing for me again?

Jamal: Yeah, I thought about it.

Zach: And you brought me all the way out here to give me your answer. I don't think so.

Frank: "Cookie, you hear me?" Do not go to that dance tonight.

Cookie: He has to notice me tonight. He has to. Oh, what now, Frank? "Are you there? Please answer." I don't have time. "Why do you care so much if I go to a stupid dance?"

Frank: "I care because you're my friend. And we're in this together."

Cookie: "In what?"

Frank: "This craziness -- the weird way we communicate. You from 1973, and me from 2001. But the note you left at Kelly's proved it's true."

Cookie: "How do I know for sure you really got it?"

Frank: "It's written in pencil. You wrote, 'Ok, Frank, here's your note. Cookie.'"

Cookie: "This is too, too weird."

Frank: "Just like I was able to tell you about Nixon resigning and Reagan becoming president, I can tell your future, too. If you go to that dance, it will ruin your whole life!"

Eve: I am so sorry. I wanted to be the one to help you. I would have given anything.

Ian: It's not your fault. You knew being a match was a long shot.

Arianna: You? You volunteered to be my donor? Thank you.

Eve: I wish it had worked out.

Arianna: It's ok. That way I can prepare for what's next.

Eve: What's next?

Arianna: I know that I'm going to die.

Alison: Who was that on the phone?

Jack: Jamal. Said he got hung up, won't be back for a while.

Alison: Oh, really?

Jack: Yeah. Do you need help with anything?

Alison: No, I'm going to hang up my apron for the day.

Jack: Oh. So, what are you going to do now?

Alison: I don't know. I mean, if Jamal's going to be gone for a little bit, you know, I did make some extra money from my muffins. Maybe I'll go treat myself to a manicure because, you know, my nails really are thrashed.

Jack: I'll go with you.

Alison: You get manicures?

Jack: No. I just thought you might like some company.

Alison: What is with you?

Jack: What do you mean?

Alison: You. In the last couple days you've been, like, hanging all over me.

Jack: No, I haven't.

Alison: Yes, you have. You even blew off a date twice with Livvie just to be here with me.

Jack: Well, I had a lot of work to do.

Alison: Yeah, uh-huh. If I didn't know any better, I'd think that you, like, had a thing for me. Oh, my God, you don't, do you?

Jack: Hey, hey, don't flatter yourself, ok?

Alison: No doubt. Well, then tell me what's going on. I mean, you and Jamal have been acting like -- you didn't tell him that the money came from Nana, did you? The 25,000?

Jack: No.

Alison: Are you sure?

Jack: I'm sure. Jamal doesn't think the money came from Nana.

Alison: Ok. Well, then, I'm going to go by myself, thank you.

Jack: Oh, hey, hey, hey.

Alison: What?

Jack: Jamal said he wouldn't be that long. In fact, he said that he wanted to have dinner with you.

Alison: Right. And you just remembered that now?

Jack: Yeah, yeah. So you better not rush off.

Alison: Yeah. What's he hung up with?

Jack: Excuse me?

Alison: What is he doing?

Jack: Oh, I really couldn't say.

Zach: What are you trying to pull?

Jamal: Not a thing.

Zach: Yeah?

Jamal: Yeah.

Zach: Why'd you drag me all the way out here?

Jamal: So Alison wouldn't find out about this, all right?

Zach: About what?

Jamal: Look, I made up my mind. I'm going to race for you.

Zach: Smart man.

Jamal: Yeah, well, there are a few conditions, though.

Zach: Like what?

Jamal: Like you leave Alison alone.

Zach: I told you I would if you cooperated.

Jamal: Yeah. And also, no funny business. No fixing bikes or rigging accidents like you did last time. All right? I want to win this fair and square.

Zach: It's cool, man. We know you're the best.

Jamal: Yeah, that's right. All right. And I will win in exchange for you letting Alison slide with this so-called loan.

Zach: That's the deal.

Jamal: Oh, yeah? So why don't you say it back to me so I'm -- so I know I'm clear.

Zach: What, you want me to spell it out? We won't hurt blondie if you ride for us. And we won't fix the race this time, either. Got it?

Jamal: Yeah, I got it.

Zach: Wait a minute. There's something not right with this.

Eve: Arianna, don't say that. You are not going to die.

Ian: Of course not. The hepatin that Eve gave you is going to help prepare your body for a transplant.

Arianna: But without a donor, it doesn't really matter.

Ian: There will be a donor.

Eve: That's right. Ian is doing everything he possibly can to find a match.

Ian: And we won't stop until we do.

Eve: And if you only knew how many people have already volunteered to be tested --

Ian: There's got to be a match in there somewhere.

Eve: And if there's not, Ian has appeals out all over the world -- the internet, the donor networks. In fact, I'm going to go right now and check the latest.

Arianna: Wait, Eve. I wanted to thank you again for everything.

Eve: I didn't do anything.

Arianna: You wanted to be my donor.

Eve: If only I was a match. But we will find someone.

Ian: You hear that? No more talk about dying.

Arianna: I appreciate what you're trying to do -- both of you. But we all know the truth.

Ian: Arianna, I --

Arianna: With my family out of the picture, the chances of finding a match --

Ian: Are not impossible.

Arianna: You don't have to spare me. Knowing you'll be there with me when it happens makes it a little easier.

Eve: Karen, hey. It's Eve. I need you to call me back as soon as you get this. I need to talk to you about Arianna. I know that you've already made up your mind about not being a donor, but I need you to reconsider. You are her only match and her only hope.

Karen: Joe, hey.

Joe: Hey.

Karen: Have you seen Eve?

Joe: Did you check on six?

Karen: I'm on my way. But if you see her, will you tell her to give me a call ASAP?

Joe: Sounds important.

Karen: I've made this decision that I think -- no, I'm sure -- will make her day and a lot of other people's, too.

Joe: Ok, I'm -- I'm curious.

Karen: You'll find out soon enough. It's getting late. I have to call Frank.

Joe: Bet you tell him.

Karen: Bye.

Joe: Bye.

Karen: Oh, great. The battery.

Frank: "You've trusted me up till now. Have I ever let you down?"

Cookie: "No."

Frank: "Going to this dance tonight would be a very big mistake."

Cookie: "Why?"

Frank: "All I know is you're vulnerable, feeling hurt, and emotional over this boy, the stuff with your dad, and on top of that, you've been drinking."

Cookie: "Not that much."

Frank: "Enough that there's a good chance you'll do something you'll regret. Stay home tonight. If you won't do it for yourself, at least do it for me."

Cookie: "Ok! Ok. If it means that much to you, I won't go."

Frank: "You're doing the right thing. You won't regret it."

Jamal: What is up with you, man? You got what you wanted. I told you I'd race.

Zach: How do I know you won't back out at the last minute?

Jamal: You don't. I guess you got to trust me.

Sam: Yeah, like we could really trust him.

Zach: Oh, he'll go through with it, all right. We'll make sure of it.

Sam: "We?"

Zach: Here's what I want you to do.

Ian: You got to stop talking about dying.

Arianna: I need to talk about it.

Ian: No, you don't need to talk about it.

Arianna: Ian, it's something I've been thinking about for a while. And now -- now that I know it's ahead, I'm ready to face it.

Ian: Arianna, I've --

Arianna: It's ok. I'm not afraid anymore. And I have you to thank for that.

Ian: Me?

Arianna: I came from a world where all I knew was fear -- fear of saying or doing the wrong thing. Fear even of my own family, who believed that honor was more important than my life. But you showed me a different world that I never knew existed, a place where I matter.

Ian: I could've done more.

Arianna: Don't you understand? This peace I feel inside for the first time in my life is all because of you. And words could never describe how grateful I am. But the time for sacrifice is almost over.

Ian: Stop it, please.

Arianna: There's just one last request. There's one more thing I need from you.

Ian: Anything. Tell me what you need.

Eve: Kamikaze, please. Make it a double.

Chris: Are you self-medicating?

Eve: Damn it, Ramsey, what are you doing here?

Chris: I followed you.

Eve: Why?

Chris: Because I knew you were upset, how you wanted to help Arianna.

Eve: That's right, I am upset. So get the hell out of here and leave me alone.

Bartender: Double kamikaze.

Eve: Thank you.

Chris: No, thank you.

Eve: What are you doing?

Chris: You don't need it.

Eve: That's what you think. My drink, please.

Chris: I said forget it.

Cookie: "Going to bed now, Frank. Thanks for caring so much."

Frank: Thank God she didn't go to that dance. Now I can say goodnight and go meet Karen for our date. What the heck? Why won't this work?

Alison: Wow, that sure is some greeting.

Jamal: Yeah, well, I just missed you, that's all.

Alison: Is that why you disappeared on me for so long?

Jamal: I told you I had some stuff to take care of.

Alison: Stuff?

Jamal: Yeah, stuff. Look, I am starving. Do you think you got something to eat around here?

Alison: Oh, my God, my chicken!

Jack: So what's up, man? Did you get it?

Jamal: Everything, all on tape -- from him threatening Ali to him rigging the races.

Jack: And you took it to the cops?

Jamal: No, I've just got to check and see, make sure everything's clear, and then I'm taking it straight to my cousin who is the D.A.

Jack: This guy's going down.

Jamal: Yeah, count on it, man.

Jack: So, what about Alison?

Jamal: Man, these fools actually think I'm about to race. They're leaving Alison alone.

Jack: Which means she doesn't need a bodyguard anymore, and I can actually spend some time with my girlfriend for a change.

Jamal: Speaking of which -- don't you have, like, some hot date to go to?

Jack: Yeah, I was just going to finish up and then --

Jamal: No, man, don't worry about it. You go get cleaned up. I got it.

Jack: Thanks, buddy.

Jamal: No, problem, man. Hey. Thanks for watching out for Ali.

Jack: Anytime.

Alison: Ok, dinner's almost ready.

Jamal: All right.

[Telephone rings]

Alison: Oops. Bike shop. Yeah. Delivery this late? Oh, yeah, yeah. That's ok. First days on the job can be a little tough. Yeah, it is a little hard to find in the dark. Where are you? Oh, you're really close. Yeah, I'll go outside and wait for you. Ok. You're welcome. Bye. Delivery person's lost.

Jamal: You need some help?

Alison: That's ok. I got it.

[Door closes]

[Alison screams]

Ian: What is it, Arianna? What is it you want?

Arianna: I don't want to die in this hospital, in this cold room with the tubes and the machines and all the strangers. I just don't want it to be that way.

Ian: You're not going to die, anyway. Do you understand me? But you're right. You certainly don't have to be here to wait for a donor.

Arianna: What do you mean?

Ian: I'm taking you home.

Eve: Who the hell are you to tell me I can't have a drink? You are the king of martini land.

Chris: Eve --

Eve: I am a grown woman off duty. So if I want to get so drunk that I can't walk, talk, or feel, then that's my business. And since I am not compatible to be a donor, I don't care what happens to my liver.

Chris: You have a lot more to worry about than that. You need to take care of yourself.

Eve: Yeah, yeah, yeah. We've been down that road before. I've heard it all before. Bartender, don't listen to him. Another kamikaze, please.

Chris: No. Don't serve her.

Eve: What is your problem? Am I hurting anyone? Anyone other than myself?

Chris: As a matter of fact, you are.

Eve: How do you figure?

Chris: You're pregnant.

Frank: Excuse me, is Dr. Wexler around?

Nurse: Who?

Frank: Karen Wexler.

Nurse: I'm sorry. I don't know any Dr. Wexler.

Frank: You must be new here.

Nurse: I am. Let me double-check the directory.

Frank: You can take my word for it. She's on staff here.

Nurse: You must be mistaken. There's no Karen Wexler.

Frank: No, you're mistaken.

Nurse: Not according to this.

Frank: Well, that's wrong, ok? Now, is there someone around here who can help me?

Joe: Hey, bro. What's the problem?

Frank: No problem. Your new nurse is insisting that Karen doesn't work here.

Joe: Karen who?

Frank: Very funny. Do you know where she is?

Joe: No, I'm not kidding. Who are you talking about?

Frank: Karen Wexler, the woman you were once engaged to who is now your friend and my girlfriend, who I happen to be crazy in love with.

Joe: Come on, Frank. I don't have time for this, all right? And neither does Jenna.

Frank: I don't have time for it, either. I've got a date.

Joe: Well, what can I tell you? There is no Karen Wexler here. There never has been.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Alison: You were deliberately trying to run me down.

Jamal: What?

Alison: She was trying to kill me. She was headed straight for me!

Eve: I'm pregnant with Ian's baby?

Rhonda: Yeah, ok. I had a nickname. They used to call me --

Frank: Cookie.
