Port Charles Transcript Wednesday 5/29/02

Ricky: Hi.

Karen: What?

Ricky: You. You are the most amazing woman that I've ever met.

Karen: Ricky, I --

Ricky: Shh. Please, Karen, let me finish. I never dreamed -- well, last night might be the single greatest night of my entire life.

Karen: It was great, and I had a wonderful time too, Ricky, but it can never happen again.

Alison: Rafe? Can you hear me? I hope so. I just feel so close to you here. I know that it wasn't your choice to leave, but I just feel so lost without you, and I just wish that there was some way that you could come back to me.

Minister: Hello. You look like you could use a friend.

Alison: Well, there's not really anything that anybody can say right now to make it any better.

James: Now, we're usually forced to watch the Home Shopping Network all day long. Oh, but this little soap opera -- it's got great potential.

Ed: What's going on?

James: Well, little miss sweetness, lightness of being, she's come into the sanctuary, and she's looking for her long, lost love -- "lost" being the operative word.

Ed: The church has always been a haven for lost souls. Don't be so quick to pull the plug on this show.

Ed: See what I mean? The cavalry has arrived.

Ricky: Let me get this straight. What you're trying to say is that what happened last night, actually all of last night, won't happen again? As in never again?

Karen: That's right.

Ricky: Wait. It seems to me that I wasn't the only one enjoying myself. Karen, did I do something wrong?

Karen: No, no, you did everything right. The last place I expected to end up with you last night was in this bed.

Ricky: Well, maybe that's what you might have thought before, but now? After all the votes are in?

Karen: You know, whatever this thing is between the two of us, it's not going anywhere, right?

Ricky: No, I'm not sure about that. In fact, the only thing strange is the way you're acting this morning.

Karen: It's not just about this morning, Ricky, or last night. This past year has been nothing but turmoil for me. I just need to take a break. I need to concentrate on my job and try to make some order out of this mess my life has turned into.

Ricky: Well, fine. Then maybe you need a fresh start. Make a new life for yourself.

Karen: No, I'm not ready to throw in the towel on my old life. And you need to get on with your life, too.

Ricky: Well, I kind of thought that that's what I was doing here.

Karen: Not with me. That's not where you want to start making a new start.

Ricky: Do I even get a vote in this?

Karen: Look, you just got a new job. You need to focus on that. You need to start going out there, having some fun, meeting girls, going to clubs, salsa dancing --

Ricky: Yeah, yeah, yeah. You know what? You're right, Karen. Because, I mean, look at me. I'm a young, healthy Latin American stud, all right? I should be going out there and getting with 18-year-old babes. I mean, why am I wasting my time with an old workaholic doctor with a medical bag full of problems? And you know what? You're not even a very good dancer.

Karen: Come on. Now you're talking crazy.

Ricky: That's what I've been trying to tell you.

Frank: Mom, what are you doing here?

Mary: Well, I work here, honey -- for the past 25 years.

Frank: I meant I didn't know you were working today.

Mary: Oh, Audrey called and asked if I'd take on an extra shift. Actually, I'm surprised to see you here. I thought you might have taken up my suggestion to get out of town for a few days and visit your brother and Gaby.

Frank: Wasn't the right time.

Mary: So you're here to see Gail?

Frank: No, I haven't called her yet.

Mary: Well, do you want me to call and see if she has time today?

Frank: Mom, I'm fine. If I see any shrink at all, it's going to be Kevin, ok?

Mary: So if you can't personally see Kevin, you broke in his office and stole his files?

James: Now, this can't be happening.

Ed: It looks like we're going to be here for a while, so why don't we make ourselves comfortable, hmm?

Rafe: I'm really messed up, and I don't know what brought me here to this church, but somehow I feel like I belong here. Maybe it's -- maybe it's someplace I can find some answers.


Minister: You came to the right place. Sometimes it helps to just talk about a problem.

Alison: Well, it's about a lot of things, really. But mostly it's about the man that I love. You know, he's a really good guy, sort of like an angel. But he's gone because of his job.

Minister: Have you considered joining him?

Alison: Yeah, I did. We both did, actually, but the timing, it just didn't quite work.

Minister: And you miss him.

Alison: So much it hurts. You know, we were so in love, but now that he's gone I almost feel like he's sort of haunting me.

Minister: Haunting you?

Alison: Sometimes I reach out my hand, and I can almost feel his hand intertwined in mine like --


Rafe: An unbreakable vine. That's what it feels like. I don't even know who it is, but it feels like someone is holding my hand.

Rafe: Hey. Hi. I don't want you to think I'm crazy.

Man: You don't have to explain yourself to me. The reverend's the one who hears anything of a confessional nature. He's in the front talking to a very pretty young lady.

Rafe: No, no, no, that's ok. I don't think he can help me with the problems I'm having.

Man: Must be about a girl. It's always a girl. You know, that's the way it's been with me my whole life.

Rafe: You know what? It's not. It's not a girl. Actually, I can't remember the last 10 years of my life.

Man: I'd sure like to forget the last 10 years of my life.

Rafe: You know, there's this girl -- this girl Livvie? And she remembers everything. She knows everything about me, so she's helping me remember.

Man: Sounds good.

Rafe: Yeah, and she's kind and caring. She's beautiful.

Man: So, what's the problem?

Rafe: Well, we're supposed to be in love, and I don't know if that's how I feel. Maybe I will in time, you know? But right now I look at her, and I just -- I don't feel anything.


Minister: Tell me what you feel.

Alison: Sometimes I wish I didn't feel anything, just because it hurts so much.

Minister: Love is a tremendously powerful emotion.

Alison: Yes, it's very powerful. So powerful that sometimes I feel like we're in the same room together.

Minister: Maybe at least until you can be together again, is there something else in your life you could focus on?

Alison: Well, yeah, there's a lot of things that I could focus on right now, but I just can't seem to get myself to care about anything except for Rafe, you know? I just love him so much, and I feel like his presence is still so strong for me that I just can't let go of him, and I'm really trying hard to find a way to do that, but I just can't, you know? Just please help me.

James: Ah -- young love. It gets me every time.

Mary: With everything going on with Kevin's disappearance, you break into his office and steal his records?

Frank: Mom, don't try and make me feel guilty about this. I have to find out what is happening to me. I thought Kevin may have written something down after the sessions we had.

Mary: What if someone sees you with these files?

Frank: I don't care. I've got to find out what is going on inside my head. I know it's not just some stinking candle causing all this.

Mary: Did you find anything?

Frank: Well, Kevin thought it must be something from my childhood, something I can't remember -- something I don't want to remember.

Mary: Well, you do know that your father drank, and he was very abusive.

Frank: I know, but it had to be something more specific, something that really upset me.

Mary: Well, there was that time you ran away from home, and --

Frank: I don't remember that.

Mary: Well, you didn't get very far, but then when we brought you home --

Frank: Yeah?

Mary: Well, you wouldn't eat, and you stopped talking to me.

Frank: Wow. And you don't know why?

Mary: We couldn't figure it out. Well, do you think it was me? Do you think that I said something or did something?

Frank: No, Mom, you were a terrific mother.

Mary: Sometimes mothers, even good mothers, do something or say something without realizing it's hurtful to their --

Frank: No, that's not what's going on here. You were a great mom. You still are.

Mary: Thank you, dear. I hope so.

Frank: But I still have to find out what is going on, what's turning my life into a total disaster.

Karen: I know what you're trying to do here.

Ricky: I'm not exactly trying to keep it a secret, Karen.

Karen: You know, I'm trying to do what's best for both of us, and as much as you may think that you care about me as a person and you might want some kind of relationship with me --

Ricky: You know better, right?

Karen: I know that what you're feeling isn't coming from your heart.

Ricky: Then where the hell is it coming from? Do you have any idea how insulting that is?

Karen: I'm sorry. I just --

Ricky: What? What? Are we friends?

Karen: Mm-hmm.

Ricky: So it's not just about the sex, right? And we did make each other feel pretty good.

Karen: For the moment.

Ricky: For the moment? Karen, what's wrong with a moment? You could be swallowed by the springs in that hide-a-bed, and I'd never see you again.

Karen: Well, you know, I have to operate on the assumption that that's not going to happen, but in the meantime, while I'm living on the edge, I have a lot of stuff to figure out all by myself, and I have to do it alone, Ricky.

Ricky: Ok. Fine. I'll back off. But you've got to answer something for me first -- if you would have met me before you met Frank, would you be throwing me out of this place this fast?

Karen: If I met you before I met Frank, you might have still been in diapers.

Ricky: Ok, that's it. You know what? You win. I'm out of here.

Karen: Ricky, wait.

Alison: I just tried everything to get over him. I tried so hard that maybe that's how I got myself into some trouble.

Minister: What kind of trouble?

Alison: Well, after Rafe left, all I really wanted to do was I just really wanted to help people. And things, they got so messed up that, I don't know, people, I think, actually thought that I killed a friend of mine, which, of course, I didn't at all, but I just feel like my life has gotten so totally out of control.

Minister: Because of your beloved?


Rafe: Do you know what it feels like to have your life feel so, I don't know, out of control? You know, like maybe there's someone else out there.

Man: And it's not that Livvie girl?

Rafe: I don't know. You know, Livvie has been so great to me, and she deserves someone who really loves her.

Man: And you're not sure you're that person?

Ed: James, you have underestimated my son. He's been drawn here for a reason.

James: Don't get too excited. Remember, he has never met Alison, so no interfering.

Ed: Judging by the love in their hearts, it should be more than enough to bring them back together.


Mary: That's funny.

Woman's Voice: Shh. Don't wake the boys. Don't wake the boys. Don't wake the boys.

Karen: Come on, Ricky, I don't want you to go away mad.

Ricky: You just want me to go away because you're afraid of what might happen if I stay.

Karen: No, you're wrong. What happened last night was a one-time-only kind of deal. A great deal, but still a one-time-only. I just want us to be friends.

Ricky: Friends? If that isn't the biggest kiss-off that I've ever heard.

Karen: Come on, give it a shot, ok? I promise it'll get easier between us.

Ricky: It's kind of hard to stop there.

Karen: Yeah, I know it is. Come on, get out of here. Go.

Karen: That's it. Never again.

Frank's Voice: Hey, Karen, it's me. I just want to let you know I'm out of jail, and I'm really trying to -- I'm really trying, ok? I love you.

Karen: No. I'm not going to let Frank get to me, neither.

Minister: I hope you found solace here.


Rafe: Thanks. You've been great just listening.

Man: No problem. Have you figured out what you're going to do yet?

Rafe: Well, I figure I'll give Livvie and me a try. I mean, I'll try to make it work the best I can. She needs me right now, and I should be there for her. You know, I figure it can't hurt, right? Since your church is named for the saint of lost causes.

Rafe: Oh, boy. That's why I'm here. I hope this isn't a lost cause.


Alison: Thank you so much for taking all the time to talk with me.

Minister: I just hope I helped.

Alison: Yeah, you really did. I know that I need to focus on other things in my life now. Thank you.

Minister: Bye-bye.

Alison: Bye.

[Floor creaks]

Alison: If I could just stop feeling like Rafe is so close to me.

James: Who says they don't make them like they used to? What a beautiful ending.

Ed: It's far from over, Jimmy Boy.

James: Eddie baby, Rafe's soul is going to be mine, as is yours.

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Livvie: Well, you did what you came here to do, Livvie, and that is the end of Alison and Rafe for good.

Kate: So, why did he leave?

Alison: He's an angel. They made him go back. You know --
