[Lucy coughs]

Kevin: Look, I'm in a hurry, so whatever you think you know about our situation --

Man: I have the information you're looking for. About the Koviches? All the answers you could need.


Kevin: Who the hell are you? What's going on?

Kevin: Oh, my God. Lucy? Lucy!

Chris: There's an empty room down this hall.

Nurse: Dr. Ramsey, should I call down to ER?

Chris: No, I'm handling it.

Nurse: I just thought --

Chris: Don't think! Just get out of the way.

Karen: Hey, what's going on?

Chris: Just stick to your rounds.

Karen: Learn a few manners, Ramsey. What happened?

Frank: They know about Gabby. They had her caged up so Ramsey could do some experiments on her.

Karen: My God, Chris, what have you done to her?

Chris: Karen, what do you think you're doing?

Karen: Save it. We need help.

Jack: Look, Livvie, listen --

Livvie: No, get off.

Jack: Caleb had to be stopped. He was going to take Eve's baby and he would have hurt you, too.

Livvie: No, Jack, he never would have hurt me! You don't know him. None of you knew him, not like I did.

Michael: He was my brother. I knew him.

Livvie: Yeah, and you killed him. You killed him.

[Pagers beep]

Eve: It's Karen.

Ian: It's an emergency at G.H. I'll get the car.

Jack: You guys go ahead. We'll be fine.

Michael: I won't leave town without saying goodbye.

Jack: Livvie, listen -- Livvie --

Livvie: No, stop, Jack. Don't come anywhere near me.

Michael: I'm sorry. I'll leave you alone.

Jack: No, wait. Now that Caleb's gone, what happens to me?

Karen: What did you give her?

Chris: Mixture of demutase and protinic acid. Should have just isolated the foreign substance in her blood.

Karen: Well, obviously, it did a lot more than that. What were you thinking?

Alison: We thought that maybe Chris could help her, like, find a cure or something. We didn't know --

Chris: If you want to have a conscience about this, fine, but do it another time. I injected a protein binder to counteract the compound. It -- I don't know. There's no reason it shouldn't be working.

Karen: Except she's not your average, everyday patient, Chris.

Chris: Yeah, no kidding.

Karen: Ok, let's start another line and call the blood bank for at least two more units of blood.

Chris: It's already done. It's on its way. Frank?

Karen: Ok.

Chris: Help me with the restraints.

Karen: Why don't you guys wait outside. We'll talk about this later.

Alison: Ok.

Jamal: Please help her.

Karen: Yeah. Ok, let's get another H and H started after we finish this unit and make sure her hemoglobin's over six. We want to keep a close eye on that. We don't want her breaking out of those.

Chris: So how long have you known about our little vampire epidemic?

Karen: Long enough. Why, wondering if I've done any experiments?

Chris: Don't tell me you're not curious.

Karen: Being curious and conducting lab experiments on a human being are two different things.

Chris: Except she's not exactly human, now, is she?

Frank: I ought to choke you, Ramsey.

Karen: Take it easy, Frank.

Alison: Look, Jamal, I'm sure that everything's going to be ok, all right?

Jamal: You don't know that. We don't know anything. Damn it, how could I have been so stupid?

Alison: You were just trying to keep us safe, everybody safe, including Gabby.

Jamal: Yeah, right, right, by handing her over to Chris Ramsey. That's real safe. After everything he did to Jack, I should have known.

Alison: We didn't know what else to do.

Eve: They're in here?

Alison: Yeah.

Ian: How is she?

Chris: Does everybody know about the vampires?

Eve: We know enough. What have you got her on, Karen?

Karen: A blood transfusion and a session of plasma pharesis to hopefully get the drugs out of her system. All we can do now is wait.

Frank: I've got security in Emilio's room. I think we should do the same here.

Ian: Let me come with you. Give me a second, ok?

Eve: Ok. How could you do this? How could you just play with somebody's life like that?

Chris: I was trying to help. I screwed up, ok? I thought I had things under control.

Eve: Yeah, but you didn't.

Karen: Gabby's BP's up and her vitals are returning to normal.

Eve: She's coming out of it.

Chris: Gabby?

Gabriela: What happened?

Karen: You're going to be all right, Gabby. You had a close call.

Chris: We almost lost you.

Gabriela: Well, maybe you should have.

Michael: I'm not sure I have the answers you're looking for, Jack.

Jack: I know you're not like your brother, but you were the closest person to him. You knew exactly what he went through.

Michael: Caleb was cursed with the life he was given. And I thought I could help him with that.

Jack: How? Because he made me what I am now, and I'm afraid of what I might do to Livvie.

Michael: I understand.

Jack: She wanted me to feed on her. She wanted me to make her what I am. And I was scared to death that I'm going to lose control, that I'm going to let myself hurt her, and I can't. Please help me. You have to tell me how you controlled Caleb. I mean, didn't you say that there was a time when you could reach him and you could stop him?

Michael: There was.

Jack: Well, when? I mean, how did you do it?

Michael: After Olivia -- the first Olivia -- had died, Caleb came to me. He was so devastated that he had killed the woman he loved. He begged me to help him. He wanted help.

Jack: So he was able to control his urges. I mean, he wasn't dangerous, right?

Michael: For a long time he wasn't. He was willing to live with me in seclusion at the monastery. He didn't want to be what he was.

Jack: Then what changed?

Michael: He saw Livvie.

Michael: He went out one night and he saw her and it started all over again.

Jack: That's what I was afraid of. I love Livvie more than anything, and when we're together, my senses, my urges are stronger than ever.

Michael: You're afraid. You're afraid in time you'll hurt her, that you'll try to turn her.

Jack: And I can't let that happen. Father, please, tell me there's something else I can do.

Michael: I wish I had the answer, Jack. I looked forever with Caleb. Every time he tried to stop, even when he was locked up, those impulses -- they came back. They never completely went away.


[man coughs]

[glass shatters]

Kevin: Lucy, thank God you're all right.

Lucy: Doc, you saved my life.

Kevin: No, I didn't.

Lucy: What?

Kevin: When I got here, someone had kicked in the door and the window was already broken.

Lucy: Well, if you didn't save me, who saved me?

Kevin: Here.

Lucy: Ooh, thanks.

Kevin: How do you feel?

Lucy: Mmm, mmm. I'm ok. I guess as ok as someone can be knowing someone just tried to kill them.

Kevin: Do you remember what happened?

Lucy: Yeah. I came out of the shower and I smelled gas and I heard the heater hissing, so I ran over to try and turn it off and, Doc, the handle came right off in my hand -- almost like it was deliberate.

Kevin: Yeah, I know, I saw the heater. And I ran into some guy in the hallway who was obviously sent to stall me. But lucky for you, whoever tried to do this missed. We're leaving here tonight. I've got us booked on a flight that leaves in an hour.

Lucy: No! Doc, no, wait.

Kevin: Caleb is dead, Lucy. There's no life-or-death reason to stay, but there is one to leave -- your life, and I'm not going to risk it.

Lucy: But that's exactly why I have to stay. This is my life. This is my entire ancestry, where I come from. Now, I'm a threat to somebody. They want me out of the way. I need to find out who wants me out of the way.

Kevin: It's too dangerous, Lucy.

Lucy: It's more dangerous if I don't find out. I would never, ever feel safe anywhere. You know that.

Kevin: Look --

Lucy: Doc, please, someone just tried to gas me. They need to know they're messing with the wrong woman.

Ian: Ramsey.

Chris: How's Gabby? Any change?

Karen: Well, she's fine and recovering, if that's what you're wondering.

Eve: But she still has a long way to go.

Chris: Well, if this is about another third degree, I'm in no mood.

Ian: Whatever this is, I need to talk to you about something.

Chris: And that would be?

Karen: Technically, Gabby's recovering just fine and getting enough strength back to be safe.

Frank: Here. But there's no way we can release her and have her out on the streets.

Chris: All right. Then you understand what I was trying to do.

Ian: We understand you're trying to make a buck off of this.

Chris: Who said that's what I was doing?

Ian: If your tests showed anything that would help Gabby or the others, we need to know about it.

Eve: Did they, Chris? Did you find anything?

Chris: I didn't finish. There's still a lot of tests that need to be run.

Ian: All right, but we got to keep working on this antidote.

Karen: He's right. It's the only way to save Gabby, Jack --

Frank: Emilio --

Ian: And anyone else whose life is in danger.

Eve: Caleb may be gone, but they still need our help before it's too late.

Michael: I'm sorry for what my brother has done to you. And I'm sorry if I'm not offering you much hope right now.

Jack: All that matters is Livvie. But -- but maybe if I left Port Charles, you know, I mean, maybe if I left she would be safe as long as I didn't come back. I mean, maybe that would be a good idea, for me to leave. I mean, what do you think?

Michael: I know you're looking for someone to tell you what to do, Jack, to give you certainty, but all the answers are inside. All I can do is tell you what this life was like for Caleb.

Jack: I don't want to be like your brother.

Michael: I understand. I can't condone the pain he caused people, but Caleb -- he wasn't pure evil. He struggled with what was inside him just like you are. But all he wanted was a normal life, to love and have a family like everyone else.

Jack: But he couldn't.

Michael: No, he couldn't. But his desire for it became too much. Eventually, he gave in to that, to all the desires.

Jack: And that's when he became the monster I saw.

Michael: Yes.

Jack: Well --

Michael: I can see how much you love Livvie and how valiantly you're fighting what's inside you. You can be strong. Search your soul for a way to avoid the same fate as my brother.

Jack: I already have, father. I know what I have to do. I've known it all along.

Ian: If we're going to be working on this together, we have to keep it under wraps.

Chris: That's easy. We'll just keep Gabby and Emilio under tight security. I'll whip up some kind of phony plague to keep them quarantined.

Karen: I never thought I'd say this, but good idea.

Chris: Thank you.

Ian: No one goes into their rooms but us, all right?

Eve: Ok, wait a minute -- what if the other doctors start asking questions? What do we do then?

Chris: We just lie.

Karen: Ok, fine, so it's agreed. No one will know about the research we're doing.

[Phone rings]

Karen: On-call room. Yes, sir. No, sir. Yes, sir, I understand.

Eve: What was that about?

Karen: Alan Quartermaine is coming to see us, and he doesn't sound happy.

Jack: Thanks for answering my questions, Father.

Michael: I'm not sure I was any help.

Jack: No, you were. You saved Livvie's life and a lot of other people's from your brother, and for that I'll always be grateful.

Michael: I wish there was more I could do.

Jack: Right now I'm the only person who can help myself. Thanks. Promise me one thing. Watch over Livvie. Pray for her.

Michael: I will pray for her, Jack. And for you, too.

Jamal: How you feeling?

Gabriela: Why didn't you all let me die when you had the chance?

Jamal: Because we don't want you to die.

Gabriela: Why? Wouldn't everyone be better off?

Jamal: Not me.

Gabriela: Your girlfriend would be happier, that's for sure.

Jamal: Alison's the reason why you're alive. Might have been too late if it wasn't for her.

Alison: Hey, Jamal. Here's the coffee I brought you. Hey. Gabby, I didn't know that you were awake.

[Phone rings]

Jamal: I got to take this. Here. With you. I'm sure you need some sleep, Gabby.

Gabriela: Alison, wait. You saved my life?

Alison: Well, I just went in and checked on you. I'm sure that's something that anybody would do for another human being.

Gabriela: But I'm not human, am I?

Jamal: Hey, Jack, you ok? What's going on?

Jack: Jamal, Caleb's dead.

Jamal: Yeah, I know. Eve and Ian told us. Everything's going to be ok now.

Jack: No. No, not everything. It's time, bro.

Jamal: Time? Time for what?

Jack: What we talked about. Livvie's safe from Caleb, but not from me.

Jamal: Oh, no, come on, you don't mean --

Jack: You have to do this for me, Jamal. You have to destroy me.

Kevin: Lucy, I know you're upset.

Lucy: No, I am not upset. Now I am mad. Someone is trying to scare me away from finding out who I am.

Kevin: They're not trying to scare you, they're trying to kill you, and I won't give them another chance.

Lucy: Well, I am not running away.

Kevin: Fine, if you won't do it for yourself, then do it for me.

Lucy: Ugh.

Kevin: Lucy, we did say that we'd get back to Livvie, didn't we?

Lucy: Yeah. Yes, yes, of course we did, but Livvie's ok. Caleb's gone and Jack's got her, and besides, she has all those friends to keep her safe. Come on, Doc, please, please. What would one more day hurt?

Kevin: It could hurt you, and I won't allow it.

[Knock on door]

Kevin: I'll get it.

Lucy: Ooh.

Kevin: Thank you.

Lucy: What? What is that? Flowers? Are they for me?

Kevin: Be careful.

Lucy: Ok. "I think it's time we finally meet." Doc, look at that. Wait a minute. Look at this. This is -- this is the same symbol I saw. This is Michael's family crest. No, no, no. Before you even think about saying another word, that's it, I am not going anywhere. I'm staying.

Livvie: Caleb. You came for me.

Caleb: No, Olivia.

Livvie: What, Caleb?

Caleb: I can't be with you anymore.

Livvie: Wait, you -- you promised me. You said we'd be together forever.

Caleb: I never wanted to leave you.

Livvie: You don't have to. Caleb, don't leave then.

Caleb: It's too late. My brother has killed me.

Livvie: No.

Caleb: And he'll kill you.

Livvie: No.

Caleb: And then Jack.

Livvie: No!

Caleb: Every trace of me.

Livvie: No! No! No! No! No! No! You. You're going to kill me.

Michael: I'm going to kill what's left of Caleb in you.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Michael: Killing my brother saved your life, so, yes, you will listen to me.

Jack: End all this, just like we talked about.

Jamal: You make it sound just so simple.

Jack: It is simple. If Livvie's going to be safe, I have to die.
