Kevin: Answer me! You knew all along what Jack was. You knew that he was --

Lucy: A vampire.

Jamal: Hold on. What makes you think I even knew anything about --

Kevin: What makes me think? What makes me think? This makes me think!

Alison: Kevin, that's mine. I just -- I have this, like, rare blood disorder --

Kevin: All right, enough! Enough with the bogus cover stories! Enough with the lies!

Lucy: Ok. Doc. Listen, you two, I know what you're trying to do. I know you're trying to protect your friend Jack. But you also have your friend Livvie to protect.

Alison: Livvie? What about her?

Kevin: Jack has her.

Alison: What?

Kevin: God knows what he'll do to her now.

Jamal: Oh, come on, Jack would never hurt her. He loves her more than anything on --

Kevin: You listen to me. Listen -- this thing is a vampire. You're going to tell me where he is, or help me God, I'm going to beat it out of you!

Chris: Oh, God, he's dead. He's really dead. Ok, you're a doctor. Don't panic. You can get him back. I'll get you back. Ah! Ah! What the hell --

Jack: You still think you can take me, Chris?

Chris: Jack. Jack -- ah!

Caleb: Seven days and seven nights. Give me that much and you'll know what it is to be loved, to be so happy that you'll never want to be anywhere else. We could be so good together. All you have to do is say yes.

Livvie: Oh. No. How can you ask me to do this? You know I love Jack. I could never leave him.

Caleb: Jack means nothing to you! Do you understand me? Nothing!

Lucy: Doc, please, wait, let him go. Let him -- let him go. Just take it easy, Doc.

Kevin: Take it easy?

Lucy: Take it easy.

Kevin: Take it easy? My daughter's in the hands of some monster, and you want me to take it easy!

Lucy: I know, ok. Hold on. Please. Jamal, Alison, obviously this is the time to come forward and tell the truth. Just, please, tell us the truth right now, please.

Jamal: Ok, ok. Ok, look, it's true. Ok, Jack's -- Jack's kind of a vampire.

Lucy: Well, what -- what do you mean, "kind of a vampire?"

Kevin: Who the hell cares? Where is my daughter?

Jamal: Look, we don't know! I swear, we don't, Lucy.

Alison: Look, we really thought that she was at the lighthouse with you.

Kevin: All right. All right. Just tell me everything and this time, I mean from the beginning.

Jamal: All right, look, remember when Jack was missing for a couple of days?

Lucy: You told us he was out of town.

Alison: Well, actually, it started when he and Livvie went camping in the woods.

Lucy: In the woods. In the woods. I told you. I knew that.

Alison: Well, anyways, Livvie got really scared because Jack hadn't come back yet from gathering all the wood.

Alison: All of a sudden, he just turns up alive.

Jamal: Yep, without a scratch on him.

Lucy: That -- that's incredible.

Kevin: Wait a minute. You're telling me that Jack died, you buried him, and then he came back to life.

Jamal: That's what happened.

Kevin: And you didn't find this at all odd?

Alison: Well, yes -- yes, of course we did.

Jamal: Of course we did. We were freaking out, but we were just so glad to see him.

Alison: We just thought that maybe we must have buried him alive or something.

Lucy: Wait, wait. And Jack didn't have any memory of how in the world he got out of that grave?

Jamal: Nope, none.

Alison: No. But he did start acting very, very weird after that. I mean, he started -- he was, like, hungry all the time. He had this awful temper.

Jamal: Yeah, and he had this crazy, insane strength. I mean, it was just lunatic strength.

Kevin: Yeah, I've seen it.

Jamal: Well, anyways, when I brought back the blood and I thought that that was what he needed, it all kind of made a sick kind of sense.

Alison: And that is the whole story.

Lucy: Uh, no, not quite. I mean, you're forgetting one very important thing here -- Jack had to have been bitten by a vampire, so who?

Jamal: Caleb.

Lucy: Caleb. I knew it. Caleb.

Alison: Yeah. Actually, he was trying to kill him, but then Jack fought so hard that he, you know, drew blood.

Lucy: Wait. So Caleb's and Jack's blood somehow got mixed together.

Jamal: But bottom line here is that Caleb's the one that's responsible. Ok? So until he's stopped, nobody's safe.

Caleb: I don't want to hear any more about Jack!

Livvie: You're hurting me.

Caleb: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I just -- I have so much to offer you. I just want to give you so much, Olivia. Do you know what it's like to have -- to have dreamed of something for so long and the thought of it not coming true almost -- almost becomes too much to bear?

Livvie: Yes.

Caleb: That's how I feel about you. So you'll just have to forgive me if sometimes my emotions get the best of me.

Livvie: I know what you want, but you have to understand, for me to leave my family and the people I love --

Caleb: These same people have disappointed you time and time again. Olivia? I know you have a difficult decision to make. I know because I've -- I've been where you are. I know how hard it is to turn away from all the things you believed in, turn away from the way you thought your life would be. And right now, you got to be feeling like you're about to step blindly off some precipice. But if you take that step, take that leap of faith, I promise you you'll see that you can fly. You'll experience the impossible. And I want to show you that.

Livvie: I don't know.

Caleb: Tell me what would make you the most happy no matter how unattainable. Tell me, Olivia, and I will give it to you.

[Chris groans]

Chris: No! You were dead! You were electrocuted! You had no pulse. How can you be alive and what is with the fangs? What the hell are you? Something in your blood. It's got to be. Something in your blood, it's -- it's not right. It's not human. It's almost animal. It's like you've been -- it can't be.

Jack: Chris, I'm begging you. Please.

Chris: But what other explanation is there? Coming back from the dead, your blood is half animal, and you've suddenly grown fangs? But that's crazy. It is crazy, isn't it, Jack? I mean, there's no such thing as vampires. But you are one. Back up.

Jack: Chris, let me -- let me out, and I'll tell you everything, ok? After I find Livvie.

Chris: It all makes sense -- I mean, your superhuman strength, coming back to life. I mean, you came back to life. Jack, imagine the possibilities. I mean, if I could unlock the secret to your vampireness, you know, the immortality, it'd be huge. It'd be bigger than discovering the fountain of youth. It'd be the biggest thing I've ever dreamed of. Hey, and here -- here I always thought you'd never amount to anything.

Jack: Listen to me -- there's this Caleb guy, the guy who did this to me. He wants Livvie, and I'm the only one who stands a chance against him. But he -- but --

Chris: You don't look like you stand a chance against a housefly.

Jack: I need to feed. I need blood. And you have to get it for me. Please. Please, please.

Marcela: Out of here already?

Chris: You bet. I won't be around for a while. I'm going to take some time off.

Marcela: Oh? Really? I didn't see your vacation on the schedule.

Chris: Well, it wasn't planned, but Dr. Quartermaine is cool with it. Adios.

Marcela: Off to Mexico?

Chris: Uh, no, not exactly.

Marcela: Where, then?

Chris: Well, kind of a secret.

Marcela: Ooh. Some place fun, I hope.

Chris: Well, let's just say I'm sure it'll be profitable.

Marcela: Profitable?

Chris: Don't miss me too much.

Kevin: I can't believe you didn't tell us all this before.

Lucy: No, especially if you knew Caleb was after Livvie.

Kevin: And now his buddy Jack has her and it might be too late.

Alison: No, but it's not like that.

Kevin: Not like what?

Jamal: Easy, easy. We tried to tell you before -- he's not like Caleb. He's not a full-blown vampire.

Kevin: What do you mean by that?

Jamal: Well, he hasn't actually fed on a living person yet.

Alison: Yeah, he hasn't killed.

Lucy: Ok, fine, but from what I know about vampires, that could eventually change.

Kevin: Then why else would Jack take her?

Jamal: Well, I know a couple of weeks ago that he thought it would be a good idea to actually get Livvie out of town just to get her away from Caleb.

Alison: Yeah, but, see, this doesn't make any sense either because they changed their minds at the last -- I mean -- I mean, we're all so tight and everything, like -- like they would have said something if they were going to just take off like that.

Jamal: Yeah, but they did last time.

Alison: Yeah.

Kevin: What are you saying?

Alison: Just that it's not like them at all to just leave without even saying a word.

Jamal: I just thought of something.

Lucy: What? What did you think of?

Jamal: He didn't take his blood.

Kevin: So?

Jamal: It means something's wrong. I mean, he's got to be feeding hard core right now.

Kevin: Wait a minute, wait a minute. Are you suggesting that Jack and Livvie may not even be together?

Jamal: Well, if they are, then they had to have been probably taken against their will because Jack -- he never, ever would've left his stash behind this long.

Alison: No, because he gets really, really sick without it.

Jamal: Yeah, he's in, like, so much pain and he gets so hungry that he can -- he can barely even think straight.

Kevin: All right. Would he get hungry enough to feed on Livvie?

Jamal: No way, no.

Alison: No, Dr. Collins, no. He would never do that. He loves Livvie. He would never do that.

Jamal: Yeah, I'd be more worried about Caleb right about now.

Alison: He's really obsessed. He wants to make her his bride.

Jamal: Yeah, and actually kind of turn her into what he is.

Kevin: All right. Do you have any idea where they might be right now?

Alison: I do know of a couple of places that they used to hang out.

Kevin: All right, we'll start there. Lucy, start at the blood banks.

Lucy: Yeah, I'll go to G.H. right now.

Kevin: See if anybody's seen Jack -- ok.

Jack: Where are you? Where are you, Chris? Please, where are you?

Jack: Let her go.

Caleb's Voice: She's mine, Jack. Or she's about to be.

Livvie's Voice: Oh.

Livvie's Voice: You did it. You killed him. Oh.

Jack's Voice: I would never let anybody hurt you.

Livvie's Voice: I love you, Jack.

Jack: I love you so much. Livvie? Livvie, I'm not going to let him destroy you.

Caleb: Tell me what you want more than anything else.

Livvie: I don't know.

Caleb: I think you do.

Livvie: Ok. If -- if I did, if I told you --

Caleb: What?

Livvie: Never mind. You couldn't do anything to make it come true. No one can.

Caleb: I can do anything. You just have to trust me.

Livvie: I'll tell you one thing I always wanted -- a normal family, the kind that sticks together and takes care of each other.

Caleb: I've always wanted the same thing -- to feel like you're part of something, feel that kind of love. But you know we could have that together, you and me. Neither of us has to be lonely ever again. Just give me a week. Let me show you.

Livvie: But how can a week change anything?

Caleb: Lives can be changed in a moment, in the span of one kiss.

Caleb: Just be brave, Olivia. Just let go of everything but this moment. Let go, and tell me everything you want.

Lucy: Um, listen, you don't happen to know a Jack Ramsey, do you?

Marcela: Not well, but I have seen him around.

Lucy: You have? Today?

Marcela: No, but I did see his brother.

Lucy: Chris? Oh, where might he be? You know, he could help me.

Marcela: You just missed him, and he won't be back for a while.

Lucy: What does that mean?

Marcela: He's taking some time off. A vacation I guess, although, he wouldn't say where he was going.

Lucy: That is kind of strange, huh?

Marcela: And sudden. He didn't even work his shift today.

Lucy: Oh -- but he was actually here.

Marcela: Well, just to see Dr. Quartermaine and stop off at the blood bank.

Lucy: Did you just say the blood bank?

Marcela: Yeah. Why?

Lucy: No reason.

Marcela: Anyway, if I see Jack, I'll let you know.

Lucy: Thanks so much, Marcela. Thank you. Ok. He's here, he's gone. He leaves. Blood bank. I'm sure he wasn't making a deposit. Got to be Jack.

Chris: Rise and shine, Nosferatu. Lunch is served.

Jack: Give it to me. Give it to me.

Chris: Now, now, now. Don't get greedy. No reason we can't be civilized about this.

Jack: Oh, I need more. More.

Chris: Um -- no can do. Well, if we're going to work together, I have to be able to handle you, and something tells me if you get a little too much of that juice running through your veins, then look out.

Jack: I can't live on what you got me.

Chris: Jack, I'm a doctor. You can trust me. I'll give you just enough to keep that precious vampire blood of yours pumping.

Jack: Whatever I've become, you're the monster. I swear, you're going to pay for this.

Kevin: Livvie followed Caleb to a place like this?

Alison: Yeah. Yeah, she tried to fight it as much as she could, but she really just couldn't.

Jamal: Truth is, Dr. Collins, Livvie would probably follow him anywhere.

Kevin: Is this where Caleb lives?

Alison: Yeah. It's kind of creepy, isn't it?

Jamal: Yeah. It's all right, baby. Look, if Livvie is here, Caleb can't hurt us.

Kevin: Why do you say that?

Jamal: Because he can't kill in front of someone that he loves.

Kevin: "Love."

Jamal: Yeah.

Kevin: Funny way to think of it -- turn someone into an evil version of yourself.

Alison: Look, we will find them, ok?

Kevin: How? We don't even know where Livvie is.

Jamal: Well, let's just look around. I mean, maybe he left something. Maybe she left something that'll lead us to her. I don't know.

Kevin: Oh, my God.

Jamal and Alison: What?

Kevin: These are Livvie's clothes.

Jamal: Are you sure?

Kevin: She was wearing these when she disappeared!

Alison: Oh, my God.

Kevin: He has her. Caleb has her.

Caleb: So what did you think of the grounds?

Livvie: They're beautiful. You know, you're not the first man to make promises.

Caleb: Hmm. But mine won't be broken. You can have the family that you want.

Livvie: I wanted that family with Jack.

Caleb: But can Jack give you the rest of it? Imagine it, Olivia -- something you never thought could be. Imagine it.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Kevin: Do you think that Chris has Jack?

Lucy: Yeah, Doc, I'd bet the farm on it. The question is, where?

Livvie: Mom!

Rachel: Oh.

Livvie: God! I can't believe it. It's really you. You're here.
