[baby fusses]

Ian: Hey.

Eve: Hey.

Ian: Why don't you try to get some rest?

Eve: I'm afraid if I stop looking at him --

Ian: He's going to be all right.

Chris: Eve. Hey, I just heard.

Eve: Chris. Hey. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to stop by and see you after your run-in with Caleb.

Chris: Oh, stop, it's ok. Guess you were kind of busy, right? How's he doing?

Eve: Well, I haven't been able to hold him and he's a little small. But he's a fighter.

Ian: Dr. Miranda's running some tests.

Chris: Well, if this kid's anything like his mother, I'm sure he'll be bossing you two around in no time.

Eve: I can't lose him.

Ian: Doctor, what's the news? What's wrong with our son?

Alison: Look, Jamal, I said that I was sorry.

Jamal: Look, you got to understand that Gabby, she's a part of my family now.

Alison: Yes, and I will -- I will try harder.

Jamal: I know you don't trust her or anything, but she's been hurt, too, ok, and I'm not going to turn my back on her.

Alison: Jamal, I just don't want you to get hurt if things don't work out.

Jamal: Ali, listen. I'm not expecting this to be all Brady Bunch-y or nothing like that, ok, but I'm going to be there for Gabby no matter what.

Jack: Hey, guys.

Jamal: Yo. What up?

Alison: Where's Livvie?

Jack: She's running errands, but she'll be by later.

Alison: How is she doing?

Jack: She's a little shaky but ok, I guess.

Alison: What do you mean, you guess?

Jack: It's just weird. Livvie thought that Caleb's ring appeared on her pillow last night after she threw it away.

Jamal: Well, you can't blame her for still feeling all freaky.

Jack: Yeah, I just want her to feel good again, and I have no idea how to help her.

Man: I found you. Dude, you can't just tell me that there's a vampire in town and leave me hanging.

Jamal: Look, dude, I'm working right now, ok?

Man: Well, just give me the scoop and I'll go.

Jack: You heard him. He's busy.

Man: What are you, like, his mouthpiece?

Jack: Get the hell out of here, man!

Man: It's you, isn't it? You're the big bat.

Kevin: Well, I just hate waking up and finding you gone.

Lucy: Ooh. I'm sorry. I just -- I got up so early and I thought I'd pop over home, you know, and get some of my things.

Kevin: Any news on Eve and Ian's baby?

Lucy: No. No, not yet.

Kevin: Well, I'll drop by later and check in on them. After last night, I thought you would've slept in a bit.

Lucy: Yeah, you know, you would think that after escaping a fiery inferno and watching a vampire be vaporized, I'd sleep like a log.

Kevin: But?

Lucy: It's nothing. I had a really bad dream.

Kevin: About Caleb? I'm sure you're not the only one, Lucy.

Lucy: I know. I'm sure. It's just I think mine had to be the absolute worst.

Kevin: Well, maybe it would help if you got it off your chest.

Lucy: No. No, thanks. I don't really want to talk about it.

Kevin: Now, I thought there wasn't anything you couldn't tell me.

Lucy: Well, there's not, but I don't want to talk to you about this.

Kevin: Lucy, tell me.

Lucy: The dream was about Livvie and Livvie being pregnant with Caleb's baby.

Dr. Miranda: Do you want to speak in private?

Eve: No, Chris can stay.

Ian: What's wrong with our boy?

Dr. Miranda: It's good news. His lungs are a bit underdeveloped, but they're in good shape. In due time, they should function normally.

Eve: Thank God!

Chris: That's wonderful.

Dr. Miranda: No, but there's still a problem. We discovered that your son has sleep apnea syndrome.

Ian: But that's treatable, right? Is it not?

Dr. Miranda: With sleep apnea, a child can have short periods when he's not breathing.

Eve: But it's not dangerous?

Dr. Miranda: Right, right. It's the longer periods we have to worry about.

Ian: So, what, we need a monitor for home?

Dr. Miranda: I've already ordered one. In the meantime, we're monitoring him here.

Eve: And he's going to be ok?

Dr. Miranda: I think he'll be fine. He'll probably outgrow this.

Eve: Ok. Ok, so, when -- when can we take him home?

Dr. Miranda: Well, he's ok now, but just to make sure, I'd wait until tomorrow.

[Pager beeps]

Dr. Miranda: Oh, sorry, folks. I got to get up to O.B. We'll talk later.

Eve: Oh, but --

Ian: Thank you, doctor. Thank you. Bye.

Chris: Eve, you see there? He'll be fine. Sleep apnea is scary for parents, but it is manageable.

Ian: Thanks for your support, Chris.

Chris: You bet. I'll keep a good thought.

Eve: Ok.

Ian: Well, that's a huge weight off my chest. What's the matter?

Eve: Didn't it seem like she was keeping something from us? Like she didn't want to let us down?

Ian: No, she seemed as relieved as we were.

Eve: No, but she just rushed out of here like she didn't want to answer any more questions.

Ian: She was paged to an emergency. How many times have we --

Eve: Right, and how many times, as doctors, have we told a patient that, "We think you're doing just fine," when we really weren't sure?

Ian: Eve, what are you doing?

Eve: Thornhart, you got to level with me. We're going to lose him, aren't we?

Jack: I'm not a vampire. I'm not the big bat.

Jamal: Look, Jack, why don't you calm down?

Jack: No fangs. And, hey, what do you know -- a reflection. So sorry to ruin your day. And if you don't get out of here, I'm going to throw you out.

Man: Well, you sure are acting like a --

Alison: Look, look, there are no vampires in Port Charles, ok? Jack is telling the truth, and we're not saying another word.

Man: There is something going on here, and I think you owe it to me to tell me.

Jamal: Look, I appreciate the books and everything, but later.

Man: And you're covering something up, and you're protesting way too much.

Jack: Look, get out of -- get out of my face, man!

Man: I am not --

Jamal: Hold back, dude.

Man: Judging you, but I've devoted my entire life to studying vamps. I just want to know the deal.

Jack: I don't give a damn what you want. You just stay the hell away from me.

Alison: Um, we have some lovely muffins today.

Man: Jeez, man, that guy is wrapped tight. I was just trying to help.

Jamal: How? How? By bugging him?

Man: Weren't you trying to ice the master vampire? Well, it's not as cut-and-dried as you think. There's some things that you should know, or you're still looking at a whole load of trouble.

Kevin: Oh, God, Lucy. Just the thought of my daughter being pregnant by Caleb.

Lucy: I know. I'm so sorry. It's probably nothing. You know, just watching Caleb turn to dust, and then Eve and Ian's baby on the way -- it probably all got mixed up in my head.

Kevin: Yeah, well, nonetheless, this is an image I'd like to repress.

Lucy: I know. Me, too, but I -- I can't control my dreams.

Kevin: You're right. You're right. I'm sure we're all just dealing with the aftermath of Caleb's death, and talking about it is healthy. Lucy, this is -- this is something I don't want to be shared with Livvie.

Lucy: No. Of course not. I would never breathe a word, Doc.

[Phone rings]

Kevin: Kevin Collins. Ok. I'm on my way. That's the office. I have to go. Lucy, remember, it was just a dream. A very bad dream.

Lucy: And I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

Kevin: It's ok. I love you.

Lucy: I love you. Ok. See you.

Lucy: How long have you been standing there?

Livvie: Long enough. I came in through the den. Your dream that I was pregnant by Caleb -- God, Lucy, what if that's true?

Eve: There's something you're not telling me about our baby.

Ian: Where's all this coming from? You heard the doctor.

Eve: Be honest with me, Thornhart.

Ian: I've always been honest with you. You do trust me, don't you?

Eve: With all my heart.

Ian: Ok. I'm telling you that our son is going to be fine.

Eve: Do you promise?

Ian: Yeah. Wouldn't break a promise to you or to the wee one. We'll take care of you. And as soon as you're ready, we'll take you home.

Eve: Somehow I think he understands. I just -- I want so much for him.

Ian: Hey. Come here. He's going to be fine. We'll be a family.

Eve: I want to hold him.

Ian: Just a little while, ok?

Eve: But I'll believe that -- I'll just know that he'll be ok if I can just hold him. I just want to hold him.

Ian: All right. If that's what you want, I'll make it happen. You'll hold your baby. If I have to move heaven and earth, you'll hold your son. Ok?

Eve: Ok.

Man: Are there vampires here in Port Charles?

Jamal: Yeah. There were.

Man: Cool! How many? What happened?

Jamal: There was one, ok? He was living down at the catacombs.

Alison: Yeah, and he sort of bit a few people.

Jamal: Yeah, but when he died, they all went back to normal, just like you said.

Alison: Yeah, so see? There's a happy ending to our story. Unless you think that there's more?

Man: Vampires don't just up and die. It's not that simple.

Jamal: Well, this one got blown to bits right in front of our eyes.

Man: Yeah, but they always leave behind a -- like, a kind of residue. This disturbance in the force. It can really mess you up.

Alison: Wait, you mean they can still affect you even when they're dead?

Man: Exactly. This residue -- it can't kill anybody, but it can really mess up the people who've been bitten. It's like vamps -- they leave these little mental time bombs for their victims, and they can go off when you least expect it. Boom!

Jamal: Look, but Caleb -- he didn't go down easy.

Man: And you can be sure he left a little something behind.

Lucy: Are you saying it's actually possible you could be pregnant with Caleb's baby?

Livvie: Well, I -- I slept with him, Lucy. I was out of my mind. What am I going to do?

Lucy: Uh, I'll tell you what we're not going to do. Livvie, really, we're not going to panic here.

Livvie: What if I have some demon seed growing inside of me?

Lucy: No, we're also not going to jump to creepy conclusions.

Livvie: Well, can you please just tell me about your dream?

Lucy: Uh, why don't we sit down, have some breakfast?

Livvie: No, Lucy, please tell me what happened, please.

Lucy: What happened was a -- a horrible bad dream.

Livvie: Oh, Lucy, just tell me, please.

Lucy: Ok. All right. You know what? Here it goes -- I -- I was dreaming that I came home, and you were sitting in this chair, but it wasn't that kind of chair. It was a rocking chair and you were rocking back and forth. And you were singing.

Livvie: Singing.

Lucy: A lullaby. And I walked over and I looked down at you and I could see you were pregnant. And then you looked up at me and you said that you were carrying Caleb's baby.

Livvie: Oh. God, Lucy, I think I'm going to be sick.

Lucy: No -- Livvie, listen. It's just my wacky, insane reaction to fear of losing someone to some winged thing, someone I care about very much.

Livvie: No, no, no. But your dreams always have meaning, right?

Lucy: No. No. Absolutely not. Not always. Besides, didn't we learn? Caleb can't have any children and that's why he wanted Eve's baby. Come on.

Livvie: No, but what if he was wrong or he was lying? This dream has to mean something. Maybe that's why I've been feeling so strange. Maybe I really am pregnant.

Jack: We're having a baby?

Nurse: He's a beautiful baby.

Ian: That he is.

Nurse: Ready?

Ian: I've been waiting for this moment all my life.

Ian: Hey, there, little man. Don't be nervous. You're about to meet the most beautiful woman in the world. Say hello to your mother.

Jamal: So, Kibble promised not to say anything about our little brush with the vampires.

Alison: Jamal, if Caleb can still do damage, even when he's dead -- I mean, still, like, really mess with our minds --

Jamal: Look, I think maybe Kibble's been reading way too many spooky books. I mean, he knows his stuff -- don't get me wrong -- but he -- he's a little out there.

Alison: I mean, it makes sense. It would explain why we are all so jumpy.

Jamal: We just went through this big war. Ok, that's the reason why we're on edge. It's as simple as that.

Alison: You heard what Jack said, ok, about Livvie seeing Caleb's disappearing ring and all of that.

Jamal: Look, Caleb can only mess with us if we let him.

Alison: You saw Jack just about take Kibble's head off. Right, and you remember how he reacted when I said the whole comment about the super-strength thing. Something is really, really wrong.

Jamal: I know, and it's time we make them right, ok? It's time that we just put things back to normal, you know?

Alison: Jamal, stop. Please, don't do this. Don't -- don't pretend that this isn't affecting you. Ok, don't play Mr. Cool because I saw you last night. You got up four times in the middle of the night to check the door, make sure it was locked, ok? I counted.

Jamal: Look, Caleb terrorized us for months. Ok, he made our lives a living hell. I'm not going to let this guy play us from the grave. It's over.

Alison: Yeah. I hope that you're right. But I'm scared to death that you're not.

Kevin: Chris? Any word on Eve's baby?

Chris: Well, it just turns out he has sleep apnea. He's going to be fine.

Kevin: That's good news. It's a good thing Caleb never got anywhere near that child. The sooner we put all this behind us, the better.

Chris: At least we have the research, too.

Kevin: No. Frank and Karen destroyed all the blood materials in the lab. There's no evidence of Caleb or anyone like him was ever here.

Chris: Wait -- what are you talking about? Why would she do that? She had no right. Who knows what kind of scientific advances we could've made?

Kevin: Oh, I get it. After what everyone's been through, you're still hoping to profit from it?

Chris: It's called progress, Kevin.

Kevin: What is it with you? You were bitten. You almost lost your soul, or is that redundant?

Chris: I'm sorry. You're right. I guess I just got a little carried away. It's good that all this vampire data is gone. It would only bring up bad memories.

Kevin: Well, we can all move on now that everything's been destroyed.

Chris: Not everything, Kevin. Not everything.

Jack: Did I hear you right? We're having a baby?

Lucy: No. No. We weren't talking about that -- why would we -- no, of course not. We weren't talking about having a baby.

Jack: Lucy, I know what I heard. What's going on, Livvie?

Livvie: Ok. Jack's right, Lucy, no more lies. Um -- yeah, I -- I admit I was wondering if I just might be pregnant.

Jack: Wow. Oh, my -- I mean, I thought we were careful. You're not talking about us. You're talking about Caleb.

Livvie: Jack, I am so sorry. It seems like I -- I always wind up hurting you and I hate that.

Jack: No. It's ok. I know what happened happened because Caleb had a hold on you.

Livvie: God, I can't believe this is happening -- how stupid I've been.

Jack: But I thought Caleb couldn't have children.

Livvie: Yeah, he said that, Jack, but he's told so many lies. I don't even know what's true anymore. Now, what if I am carrying Caleb's baby? What if there is something evil growing inside of me?

Jack: No. Livvie, don't even think that.

Lucy: Wait. Hey, you two, come on. We're jumping way ahead of ourselves. Yeah, we don't even know if this is possible at all.

Livvie: Well, I have to know, Lucy, because if it's true, if there is a part of him still with me, I have to know.

Lucy: I'll tell you what. I'll run out and I'll get you a pregnancy test, ok?

Livvie: Ok.

Lucy: Ok. Ok.

Jack: Hey. Whatever this is, whatever happens, we'll face it together.

Livvie: Right. Whatever happens. Look, I'm -- I'm going to get us both something cold to drink.

Jack: Yeah, that sounds good.

Livvie: Jack, I am so scared.

Jack: It's going to be ok.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Chris: I can't stop thinking about the way you were when you were under Caleb's spell -- so uninhibited, so sexy.

Gabriela: Are you coming on to me?

Livvie: I can't have Caleb's baby.
