Bartender: What's your pleasure? Glass of white?

Gabriela: Make it red.

Bartender: You sure look like trouble.

Gabriela: You have no idea.

Jamal: No, no. No, I'm not icing you, ok? You can just forget it.

Jack: Jamal, once we figure out a way to take Caleb out, you've got to take me out.

Jamal: No. No. You're my friend.

Jack: That's why you can't let me turn into some bloodsucking vampire.

Jamal: It's not going to come to that.

Jack: There's no way to stop this, Jamal. This change is coming over me. It's too late.

Jamal: All right, we'll figure out a way, ok? Just chill for a second.

Jack: Jamal, listen to me, man. Look, once I know Livvie's safe and we've sent Count Dracula back to hell, you got to do the last thing. You got to promise me.

Jamal: I'm not driving a stake through your heart. Ok? I'm not going to sit here and watch my friend die.

Jack: You have to. Because of what I might become and what I might do to Livvie, man. Don't you get it, Jamal? Killing me might be the only way to keep Livvie safe.

Livvie: You were expecting me? How did you even know I was coming here?

Caleb: I know you, every beat of your heart.

Livvie: I kept thinking about you. Then I found myself coming here. I don't even know why.

Caleb: I think you do.

Livvie: Everybody's warned me to stay away from you.

Caleb: And yet here you are. What does that tell you, Olivia?

Livvie: I don't know.

Caleb: Do you know why your heart is racing? You're here for one undeniable reason. You want me as much as I want you.

Man: Buy you a drink?

Gabriela: I've already got one.

Man: Come on, sweetheart. My name's Dave. And you're --

Gabriela: History.

Gabriela: Now, there's someone more to my taste.

Woman: Hey, you want to beat it?

Gabriela: No, I want to dance.

Woman: Well, get your own man.

Gabriela: I want this one. Dance with me.

Woman: Back off.

Gabriela: I'm not talking to you. If you enjoy breathing, you'll get lost.

Gabriela: Follow me.

Man: You don't waste much time.

Gabriela: I don't hear you complaining. I haven't seen you around here before.

Man: Just passing through.

Gabriela: Good. I want to be the only one you know in town.

Man: I like a girl who knows what she wants.

Gabriela: Well, then, you'll love me because I know exactly what I want. But right now I need some air, so why don't we go outside and get some?

Jamal: Would you just stop talking all crazy? Ok, you're not going to go all goth on me, and you're not going to turn into a vampire. And there's no way in hell, Jack, that you're going to ever hurt Livvie.

Jack: But I almost did with Sam. Jamal, when I saw Sam's fear, I could taste it. And it tasted just like blood. And I crave it so bad that it hurts.

Jamal: Well, you didn't hurt her, and that's the point, right?

Man: Hey, could I get some help here?

Jamal: No, we're closed.

Man: I just wanted to see if you guys --

Jamal: Look, I said we're closed, so beat it, all right?

Man: Same to you, pal.

Jamal: Yeah, whatever, dude.

Jack: I'm sorry, Jamal. I hate what this has done, not just to me, but to all of us. I mean, man, you had a good life. You had a good business.

Jamal: Look, it's not your fault, ok? It's not like you went out here asking for this to happen to you.

Jack: I tried fighting the hunger. But I wake up every morning thinking about it, and I go to sleep at night thinking about it -- how to feed it, how to make the pain go away.

Jamal: Look, you got to hang tough, Jack, all right?

Jack: Jamal, I don't know how much longer I can hang on. This thing is controlling my life. The only way to stop it is to stop me. Permanently.

Jamal: So, what -- so, what, you're just going to bail? Huh? "This is hard, so just kill me?"

Jack: I'm turning into a vampire, remember, Jamal? Killing people, liquid diets, blood.

Jamal: You're still the same friend that you've always been.

Jack: Do the math, Jamal. I went after Sam. I went after my own brother. I mean, come on, man, how long is it till I start going after my own friends?

Jamal: That's not going to happen.

Jack: Tell me, Jamal -- would you be so buddy-buddy if I told you I've been thinking about feeding on you?

Livvie: Look, Caleb, I think we got our signals crossed.

Caleb: Did we?

Livvie: Yeah, I am not here because I want you.

Caleb: You're not?

Livvie: No, I am in love with Jack. We are -- we are very happy together.

Caleb: Are you?

Livvie: I'm here because a woman I know, a nurse at the hospital, told me about this man she met. And it sounded like she was in love with him.

Caleb: Well, who can explain the chemistry between a man and a woman in love?

Livvie: See, the thing is the man sounded exactly like you.

Caleb: Well, how did she describe him?

Livvie: Exciting, handsome, irresistible.

Caleb: And you thought of me?

Livvie: Look, I just came here to ask you if you were seducing women all over Port Charles because it sounds like you are.

Caleb: Sounds like you're jealous.

Livvie: I'm not jealous. I'm just curious, that's all.

Caleb: Because you have no reason to be jealous. I'll admit there have been many women in my life. But there's never been anyone like you.

Livvie: But, Caleb, you hardly even know me.

Caleb: Do you really believe that?

Caleb: I can see inside you. I see who you really are. And I think you see me, too. I know you do. Come on, Olivia. Have a look. What's stopping you? Hmm? I don't bite.

Livvie: Oh, it's amazing. The way you talk to me, the way you look at me -- it's like I've known you forever. It's like --

Caleb: Nothing you've ever experienced before. And this is only the beginning. Say the word and I'll give you the world.

Livvie: Oh, Caleb. We shouldn't be talking like this. I -- I mean, I am involved with someone wonderful.

Caleb: Yet you're here with me and not with Jack. Well, that's got to hurt a guy.

Livvie: Yeah, I didn't exactly tell him I was coming here. I wasn't sure he'd understand that --

Caleb: It's my face you see in your dreams?

Livvie: No.

Caleb: It's my name on your lips when you wake up?

Livvie: How do you know?

Caleb: You love Jack. You love him like a -- like a schoolgirl loves. It's nice. It's sweet. But you want me with the passion of a woman.

Livvie: Caleb, please.

Caleb: It's time to grow up, Olivia. It's time.

Gabriela: I have a little confession to make. I didn't really need any air. I just wanted to be alone with you.

Man: Well, you are one hot babe. I never been with a girl like you before.

Man: You like it rough, huh?

Man: What did you do to my neck?

Gabriela: Just a little love bite, something to remember me by.

Man: Come here, baby.

Gabriela: No. I've had enough. That's all, folks.

Man: Hey. I ain't done with you yet.

Gabriela: But I'm done with you. It's been real.

Jack: You know how easy it would be for me to fix this hunger and take a big bite out of you, huh?

Jamal: I know it's way past your lunch time and everything. Come on. Go ahead. Go ahead.

Jack: Stop. How do you know I won't kill you, huh?

Jamal: I don't. But I'll take my chances. Maybe I was afraid before when I didn't know what I was dealing with. But now that I do, I think I'll stick around.

Jack: You're taking one hell of a gamble.

Jamal: Well, I'm betting you can beat this thing with a little help from me. That's what I believe.

Jack: Yeah. Jamal, I want to believe that.

Jamal: All right, Jack, look, look -- you got to keep remembering what we read in those books, all right?

Jack: You mean about the talisman?

Jamal: Yeah. Yeah, some twisted little lucky mojo can let them function in the real world.

Jack: And acts as kind of a protective shield.

Jamal: Yeah, yeah. And without it, mere mortals like us can dust those fools.

Jack: But how do we get Caleb's talisman, huh? We can't just go into his bat cave and ask him to dish it over.

Jamal: See, problem is, is that it could be anything. I mean, how do we even know where to start looking?

Jack: Look, ok -- say we find his lucky charm, ok? Caleb is strong as hell.

Jamal: Yeah, but you got a -- you got a power that he doesn't have. You got the power of love. Jack, you were willing to give your life for Livvie you loved her so much, and that's powerful. And Livvie loves you, too. Livvie's your lucky charm, bro.

Jack: Yeah. All this time I've been trying to save Livvie, when her love is the only thing that can save me.

Jamal: I rest my case.

Jack: I'm going to take this guy down. I swear to God I'm going to take Caleb down, but I need your help, Jamal. I need you to give me some more blood. It's the only way I can stay strong.

Jamal: All right. Well, I'll go to the hospital and get what you need.

Jack: Hey. Thanks for sticking by me.

Jamal: Hey, you would've done the same thing for me. Man, we're going to get through this.

Jack: We have to -- for Livvie. I'm not going to let Caleb get to her.

Jamal: All right. And we're going to find his talisman.

Jack: And then I'm going to drive a stake right through this bastard's heart.

Caleb: It's ok to let yourself go. Tell me -- how does this feel?

Livvie: It feels -- it feels like --

Caleb: Like you never want it to end? Just forget about everything. Forget about what everybody says. Forget about Jack.

Livvie: No. No. No, I love Jack. Caleb, this isn't right.

Caleb: I won't force you, Olivia. I want you to come to me willingly, without doubt, without the thought of any other man in your mind. And I'll accept nothing less than all of you, body and soul, a complete surrender.

Livvie: But you're asking too much of me.

Caleb: For now. It's not time yet. You're not ready. I'm willing to wait, willing to wait for that perfect moment because it will come as surely as you came here tonight.

Livvie: I -- I should probably go home now.

Caleb: Yes, you should.

Livvie: So, you want me to go home?

Caleb: It's not yet the time.

Livvie: All right, then. I'll do as you say.

Caleb: You're almost mine, Olivia. So close to happiness I can taste it.

Jamal: Wow, Jack. Talk about an all-you-can-drink buffet.

Gabriela: Don't you know it's a serious offense to tamper with blood, Jamal?

Man: I thought I hit the freaking jackpot. This girl -- she was a wild animal. She even bit me on the neck. Then all of a sudden, just out of nowhere, man -- ice cubes, cold fish. She wouldn't even let me touch her.

Caleb: Real piece of work, huh?

Man: Yeah. Crazy broad.

Caleb: A woman like that can really shorten your life. You know, I happen to know a place where the ladies are a lot more friendly. You interested?

Man: Yeah. You know what? Let me just settle my tab.

Caleb: Nah, man, let me get it. Least I can do after the night you had.

Man: Yeah?

Caleb: Yeah.

Man: Thanks, man.

Caleb: No worries.

Caleb: After all, your night's about to get a whole lot worse.

Livvie: Jack? Where are you?

[Door opens]

Livvie: Caleb, you shouldn't have --

Jack: Livvie, why did you think Caleb was at the door? Huh? I mean, what did he do to you? Did he do something to you?

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Livvie: Caleb didn't kidnap me. It was my idea. I went to him.

Michael: I didn't ask for this war, but I will fight it.

Caleb: And you'll lose, bro.

Jamal: I came here to donate some blood.

Gabriela: Well, why didn't you say so?
