Alison: You haven't said very much, Jamal.

Jamal: Well, there's not much to say, Spunky. I mean, first I find out Gabriela's a vampire and now I find out she's my sister.

Alison: I know. I know. I'm sorry.

Jamal: No, no, it's ok. I mean, I'm just a little -- I'm a little shell-shocked right now, you know?

Alison: Right.

Jamal: Maybe I should've stayed or something. I don't know, it's just --

Alison: To do what, Jamal? She said she was going to kill us. Ok, Gabriela -- she's not human.

Jamal: I know what she is. She's a vampire and she's dangerous. She's under that freak Caleb's spell. But still --

Alison: I know. I know, she's family. Ok, Jamal, I know this has got to be very strange, ok, and very awkward for you, but I think you just need to give yourself some time to -- smoke. Smoke.

Jamal: Smoke? I don't smoke, Spunky.

Alison: No, I -- I smell smoke. It's -- it's in that building over there. Come on! Come on!

[Pager beeps]

Karen: Come on, Ramsey, answer your page. You can't still be tied up.

Frank: Hey, we've got a date tonight, remember? Not to brag, but I think I really outdid myself this time. You haven't heard a word I've said.

Karen: Frank, I'm sorry, but this place is like a ghost town. There's no Ian, no Eve, Kevin's canceled all his appointments, and I can't even reach Chris.

Frank: Well, didn't he take a vacation? He's probably shacked up on a beach somewhere twisting the wings off flies or whatever else Ramsey does for fun.

Karen: Well, we're so understaffed, even Ramsey would be a welcome sight.

Frank: I'm sensing our date is not happening.

Karen: Can I take a rain check?

Frank: Well, yeah, sure. I could probably get the mariachi band to serenade you another night, and just because I had to sell my truck to get reservations at that that new restaurant --

Karen: Frank, come on! I would kill to go out tonight, but I'm the only one here and, to tell you the truth, that's starting to creep me out.

Jamal's Voice: You lay one finger on her and I will ice you faster than you can say "o-negative."

Gabriela's Voice: Then you would be killing your own sister.

Gabriela: Caleb, I don't know what to do. I need you.

Jack: My God, Lucy, you were right.

Lucy: Jack is a vampire.

Jack: Where's Livvie?

Michael: I don't -- I don't know.

Kevin: Jack, Jack, stop it!

Jack: Stay away!

Lucy: Jack, listen to me, you have the wrong guy. That's not him.

Jack: No, this is Caleb. I would know this face anywhere.

Eve: It it not Caleb! That is his twin brother and you're killing him!

Alison: Jamal, hurry up. Where is all this smoke coming from?

Jamal: I'm coming, I'm coming. Right here, under the door.

Alison: Which one?

Jamal: Right here.

Alison: Ok, open the door. Hurry up.

Jamal: Ok. All right, come on.

Alison: Hurry, hurry. Hurry. Oh, my God.

Jamal: There's somebody in there. There's someone --

Alison: Oh, my God, Jamal, that's Chris Ramsey!

Jamal: Ow! It's wired. We can't get in.

Alison: Oh, my God. We have to get him out of there!

Chris: The dial --

Alison: What? What?

Chris: The switch on the desk.

Alison: Where? Where?

Chris: Next to the microscope! It's a dial! Turn it down. There's keys up there.

Alison: Here the are. Hurry. Hurry. Jamal, hurry, hurry, hurry. Sit down. Sit down. I'll get you some water.

Jamal: Chris, you ok?

Chris: I yelled for hours. Nobody came.

Alison: Oh, God, here, drink this.

Chris: I just set the fire to try to set off the alarms, but the stupid thing must be broken.

Chris: Your good friend Jack threw me in there.

Alison: Jack? Wait, was he with Livvie?

Jamal: Where'd he go?

Chris: No. Where did he go? I have no idea. I was too busy trying to keep his fangs away from my throat. And yes, I know all about Jack. He took off with Lucy and Kevin. They went looking for Livvie. I was just stuck in here too busy trying to save my own life.

Jamal: We've been looking for him. How'd he end up here?

Chris: I don't know.

Jamal: This cage -- this cage was for him, wasn't it, Chris?

Chris: Look, it was to contain him.

Alison: You locked him in a cage? Oh, God, we should call the cops and have them lock you up for kidnapping!

Chris: Kidnapping, huh? Kidnapping a vampire? Go ahead, give them a call. Be my guest. That'd be great. Meanwhile, Jack's out there stalking dinner.

Jamal: He's not like that.

Chris: Uh-huh.

Alison: Yeah, look, he's fighting it, ok, and plus there's others out there that are much more dangerous.

Chris: What, is there something in the water? How many vampires are there?

Jamal: Know what? Just stay out of this. Mind your business. Come on. I may be Jack's only hope for a cure right now.

Alison: Look, we don't know where Jack is!

Chris: Yeah, but you said there were others. Are there or are there not? Because I need to know. Guys, all I need is one specimen and maybe I can reverse all this. What, unless you want to wait for the townspeople to round up Jack with their torches.

Jamal: Gabriela. All right? She's one, too.

Chris: Gabby? Oh, wow. The blood bank. Of course. It makes sense.

Jamal: We got to find her and help her, too, ok, before she gets in too deep, before she hurts herself or somebody else.

Frank: Stop saying you're sorry. I know how busy you are.

Karen: I just miss you.

Frank: Well, I miss you, too, but there's that whole Hippocratic oath thing.

Karen: Hmm.

Frank: We'll pick this up tomorrow, ok?

Karen: Yeah, well, it seems like we're always waiting for tomorrow, and I hate it. So I'm going to round up the troops, get some nurses in to help, hmm?

Gabriela: Karen, I need to see you.

Karen: Hey, great. Perfect timing. I was just going to page you to ask you if you could save my life and do a shift tonight?

Gabriela: Audrey Hardy's not in her office. I'd like you to accept this.

Karen: What is it?

Gabriela: My resignation. I'm out of here.

Eve: Jack, this is -- this is Caleb's brother, Michael. He's a priest! He lives here.

Lucy: Jack?

Eve: Oh, Michael, are you ok? Are you ok?

Michael: I'm fine. I'm fine.

Jack: What? What are you looking at, huh?

Ian: I thought I'd seen everything. You -- you were bitten by -- and now you're --

Jack: Yeah. You couldn't have said it better.

Michael: So you all know about Caleb.

Lucy: Uh -- yeah, we sure do. We sort of put the pieces together about Jack, and those red eyes and fangs were the final tip-off.

Ian: Michael?

Kevin: Wait a minute. We need your help. He has my daughter.

Jack: I still wouldn't trust this guy. This is his home, right? Meet his new roommate.

Eve: Oh, my God.

Lucy: Doc --

Ian: You knew about this?

Michael: Her name's Olivia. She and Caleb were to be married. Then she found out what he was.

Lucy: Wow, it's really a swell wedding present for a new bride, huh?

Michael: She wanted nothing to do with him and they fought. He killed her. But he loved her. He couldn't part with her.

Kevin: Olivia. Livvie. Oh, my God.

Jack: Caleb wants Livvie to take Olivia's place.

Michael: He wants a family.

Eve: "Nothing completes a family like fresh blood." He wants my baby, doesn't he?

Karen: I really think you should think this through. I thought you loved being a nurse.

Gabriela: Yeah, well, things change.

Karen: Yeah, people, too.

Frank: Does this have anything to do with your mystery man, the one you dumped my brother for?

Gabriela: You know, this has nothing to do with Caleb, ok? Nursing is a thankless job and I'm tired of it. So are you going to accept that or what?

Karen: You and Audrey should discuss this further.

Gabriela: Oh, fine, I'll shove it under her door myself. Should've known better than to ask you for anything.

Frank: What is wrong with her?

Karen: I don't know.

Frank: It -- it's like she's become someone else.

Karen: No, Frank, it's like this whole hospital, this whole town has been turned upside down.

Alison: Hey. You guys, have you seen Gabriela?

Karen: Actually, you just missed her, which is probably just as well.

Alison: Oh, my God, why? What did she do?

Karen: She handed in her resignation. What did you think?

Alison: Oh. Uh, nothing. I -- she hasn't been acting like herself lately, so I didn't know.

Frank: Yeah, you got that right. Well, I'm going to check on Emilio, all right?

Karen: Mm-hmm.

Frank: Catch you later.

Karen: Yeah.

Alison: It's good to see you, Frank.

Karen: Well, it's been a long, crazy night. I need to get some air.

Alison: Right. Hey, Karen?

Karen: Yeah?

Alison: Be careful out there, will you?

Karen: Yeah.

Alison: Hey, Jamal, it's me. Have you found Livvie and Caleb yet? You have? Great. Yeah, yeah, I'll be right there. Ok, bye.

Eve: Does Caleb want my baby? I have a right to know!

Ian: Answer her, Michael.

Michael: Yes. That's why I gave you the necklace, Eve. It'll protect you and the baby.

Kevin: What did you give my daughter to protect her?

Michael: I'm sorry. I suspected Caleb had found someone new. I didn't know who she was.

Kevin: Then help me find my daughter. Where would Caleb take her?

Michael: He could be anywhere.

Ian: He's not going to help you, Kevin. He's protecting his brother. The good father has built a sanctuary in here for a monster. He's built a mausoleum for the girl they killed!

Eve: Ian.

Ian: You knew what your brother was capable of and you knew that he was looking for Olivia number two and that he was going after our baby, and you did nothing.

Michael: Because you all would've died trying to stop him. I'm the only one who can.

Jack: Then why haven't you?

Michael: You've lived with this for what, Jack, a few weeks? I've lived with Caleb my whole life. You can't destroy him. He's got powers beyond your wildest dreams. But there is a small human side to him, and I think I can reach it.

Kevin: Well, while you're getting in touch with this animal's human side, what about my daughter?

Michael: I swear -- I swear to you, I'd do anything I can save her. And, Eve, I'd die before I let Caleb take your child.

Eve: I can't believe this is happening.

Ian: And where are you going? We're going to have a chat about you and my wife.

Jack: I've got to find Livvie. I've got to --

Kevin: Jack, what's happening? Jack?

Karen: I never knew kidnapping could be this nice.

Frank: Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Karen: Hmm, in a supply closet, Frank? Very kinky.

Frank: Oh, well, stairwells are good, too.

Karen: Hmm. I really need to get back to work.

Frank: Oh, wait, wait, wait. We, uh -- we haven't counted tongue depressors yet.

Karen: Oh. Well, we'd better start.

Frank: One. Two. Three. Oh, darn.

Karen: What?

Frank: I, uh -- I lost count.

Karen: Oh.

Frank: We have to start over.

Karen: Oh.

Alison: Jamal? Are you here?

[Gabriela hisses]

Chris: Get her in the cage quick!

Jamal: Open it!

Chris: She's only stunned!

Alison: Do you think this it's going to hold her?

Chris: I upped the voltage.

Gabriela: No!

Alison: Jamal, hurry, hurry, hurry! Oh, my God.

Chris: I'm not taking any chances. Well, nice work, partners.

Jamal: We're not your posse, partner. I'm just trying to keep everybody safe.

Gabriela: Let me out! You! How could you do this to me?

Lucy: This is all pretty astounding, isn't it? Are -- are you ok?

Eve: You know Ian and I haven't even picked out a name for our baby yet? Isn't that astounding? I mean, you know, we've been thinking about it, but we -- we don't want something that the other kids are going to make fun of. You know how they like to make up rhymes, like "Rob the slob" or "Dirk the jerk," you know, and -- and I'm not going to let anyone -- anyone -- hurt this baby.

Lucy: I know. Hey, you could go with a Mother Nature kind of name, you know, like Oak or Tree or Pollen or Ocean Breeze.

Eve: We'd like him to survive recess.

Lucy: Eve, all I'm saying is that the minute that baby is in your arms, you'll know his name.

Eve: Right, and when the doctor counts all his fingers and all his toes and tells me that he's healthy and when he looks up into my face for the first time, I'm going to know.

Lucy: Yeah, he's going to be fine. He's going to be a very happy, very well-loved little boy.

Eve: We're not ready yet.

Lucy: You're going to be good parents. You and Ian will be great parents.

Eve: No, we're not ready. We haven't even picked out a crib yet, and there's so much reading I still have to do. I don't know anything about this! I don't know anything! Oh, God.

Lucy: Sit, sit down, sit down.

Eve: Oh, God. Lucy, I don't know what to do. Something evil wants my baby, something that I don't know how to fight.

Lucy: I promise you we are going to do everything in our power to stop Caleb. I promise.

Eve: What if it's not enough?

Lucy: No, don't think like that. Don't -- don't go there.

Eve: Lucy, you and I both know that sometimes a mother's love isn't strong enough to hold your child safe and keep it close.

Lucy: Well, this time it will be enough. It will.

Ian: Sit down.

Michael: Ian, look, I know --

Ian: I said sit down!

Ian: Ok. Now, you claim that you care about Eve, yet you didn't tell her what she was facing. You gave her a piece of jewelry to hang around her neck and just hoped for the best. Or maybe you didn't open your mouth because you're a coward. And I'm looking at you and I can see that. But now I'm thinking maybe you didn't open your mouth because you wanted everything to play out the way that you'd planned it.

Michael: What are you talking about?

Ian: You gave Eve a necklace to protect her, protect the baby. It wasn't there to protect me, now was it? So maybe you were hoping that your brother would come, take care of me, and you can have Eve all to yourself.

Michael: That's ridiculous, Ian. I won't listen to it.

Ian: Michael --

Michael: I won't.

Ian: Michael! I'm not finished! Now, tell the truth. It's just you, me, and your boss watching. So what is it? Are you in love with another man's wife?

Jack: Look, I'm fine, all right? Let's go.

Kevin: You can't. You're not fine. You can barely walk. Now tell me.

Jack: It's hunger. I haven't fed in a while. I need blood.

Kevin: Blood?

Jack: Look, I hate it, too, but it's the only chance I have against beating Caleb.

Kevin: What exactly are you up against? I have to know.

Jack: Caleb's strength is superhuman. It's like everywhere he goes, he's right there in your face. Now, I don't know if it's because he has these powers that he's grown up with, but I'm Livvie's only hope.

Kevin: How can you expect to find Caleb when you can barely lift your head?

Jack: The more I feed, the stronger I get.

Kevin: You can't do this alone, Jack.

Jack: Kevin, I have to be ready for Livvie, but I need more blood.

Kevin: If blood it's what you need, I know where you can get some.

Jack: Oh, where?

Kevin: Here. We'll face Caleb together.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Eve: It's all because of Caleb, not Michael.

Ian: Maybe I don't know you as well as I thought I did.

Kevin: We do whatever it takes to save her. Do it, Jack. Make me one of them.
