Lucy: Hey. Now is the time for all good medical research type personnel to come eat their dinner. I got you sweet-and-sour something, and I got kung pao something, and some moo shu something, and you're going to love it.

Ian: Yeah.

Lucy: Yeah. Well, that's -- what is that? What is that "yeah"?

Ian: I may have found something. I'm not sure, not yet.

Lucy: What does that mean?

Ian: I've found what I think is a stable solution.

Lucy: That's great, but what does that mean?

Ian: It means a cure.

Lucy: Really? Really, a cure? You think it's --

Ian: Maybe a cure, maybe.

Lucy: I like maybes, but couldn't we turn a maybe into a definitely? How?

Ian: Well, we'll try it out.

Lucy: Try it out. Like a test? When? On who? When would we do that?

Ian: On me, right now.

Alison: What did you just say to me?

Livvie: You heard me. Where I found this is none of your business, and what the hell are you doing here, anyway?

Alison: Um, Tess --

Livvie: Always hanging around, always trying to make trouble.

Alison: Why are you so --

Livvie: "Why?" Wake up! Use the two brain cells you have left -- if you've even got two. I happen to hate you, remember?

Alison: I don't know what you're so upset about, and I don't know what's wrong.

Livvie: "Wrong"? No, no, nothing is wrong. In fact, everything is finally right again. You're the one who doesn't recognize someone you used to call your so-called best friend once upon a time.

Alison: Oh, my God. Livvie, no.

Livvie: Oh, don't you wish. Yeah.

Tess: What? Jack?

Elizabeth: You make yourself comfortable. We're family. I won't bite.

Rafe: Ok, so, look, Alison said you knew.

Elizabeth: I do. I need you. You're the only one who can help me.

Rafe: With what?

Elizabeth: It's a little hard to explain.

Rafe: Well, try.

Elizabeth: We have to talk.

Rafe: About what? What do we need to talk about?

Elizabeth: Well, there's something, something really important.

Rafe: Really? Well, I'll tell you what, I'm dealing with something important myself right now, so -- well, you know how it is -- a town full of vampires, a slayer's work is never done.

Elizabeth: You know, this isn't going to take very long. Is it hot in here? Aren't you hot?

Rafe: No, it's -- really, it's not that hot.

Elizabeth: No, feel me. Am I hot?

Rafe: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold on. What are you doing?

Elizabeth: No, no, no, no, just look, Rafe, look. Look. Look. Just touch me, taste --

Rafe: I don't -- what the heck are you doing?

Elizabeth: We have to have sex, Rafe. We have to have sex. Now. Right now.

Tess: I don't understand. Did something -- did something just happen?

Jack: No, no, it's just been a long day. Look, why don't you just grab us some sodas in the fridge.

Tess: Ok.

Jack: Ok?

Tess: I'll be right back.

Alison: Ok. Water's fine with me.

Jack: Ok.

Alison: What just happened there?

Jack: I don't know, but tell me how that got here.

Alison: I don't know. She came in and she was carrying that. But as soon as she opened it, like, I don't know, something started to happen.

Jack: Caleb gave Tess the music box.

Alison: Oh, God.

Jack: Yes, and then I destroyed it, and suddenly it came back together. I don't know.

Alison: Yeah, just like Caleb.

Jack: So, Alison, now do you know what we're dealing with?

Alison: Yes, I understand. And anything that you need -- I'm sorry.

Jack: Ok, just get Rafe back here, and I'll take care of Tess. I'll make sure she stays busy.

Alison: Ok, I will go as fast as I can, and then I'll come back. Jack, I'm really sorry. I am, ok?

Jack: I'm just glad we're on the same page, all right?

Alison: All right.

Tess: There wasn't any soda, so I just got some waters.

Jack: Oh, hey, water's fine.

Tess: Where's Alison?

Jack: She just left for a little bit. Rafe needed her.

Tess: "Need"?

Jack: Yeah. Hey, let's just sit down, ok?

Tess: Jack, you need to tell me what just happened because something did. I can feel it.

Jack: You don't remember, do you?

Tess: I was coming out of the bedroom. I saw Alison sitting here, and then I went over to the music box, and then I opened it so she can hear the --

Jack: The what?

Tess: The music, and then the next thing I know, I was standing there and she was looking at me really upset, and then you were standing there --

Jack: It's ok. Hey, it's ok. I'm here, ok? Just tell me, where did you get it?

Tess: The music box? It was right where you left it.

Jack: Me?

Tess: Yes, you. Who else?

Lucy: No. Absolutely no.

Ian: Can you not argue with me just one time?

Lucy: I have to. You don't know what this is. You don't know what it would do to you. You don't know how much to even take. You don't know what would happen.

Ian: I know what will happen if Idon't take it.

Lucy: But I know we're fine. That water's making you hold steady, and making love to me stops the urges enough to --

Ian: Well, I don't want that. I don't want to make love to you to stop urges. I -- I'm -- I don't want to turn something beautiful into a prescription.

Lucy: You haven't, you won't, and it's not. I love making love with you, more than anything --

Ian: So do I, but I need a permanent cure.

Lucy: Please, Ian, don't even think that.

Ian: I want my life back! I want my son back. And if we're going to have a future together, then I'm --

Lucy: "If"? What "if"?

Ian: I want it to be normal. I want a normal life with you. I want to be strong for you and predictable and grow old with you.

Lucy: Ok, but --

Ian: And I want to make love with you because we want to, not because we have to. Try to understand that, please.

Lucy: I love you, and love what you just said, and I do understand.

Ian: You do?

Lucy: I do.

Lucy: For us?

Ian: For us.

Rafe: What are you doing? Are you out of your mind?

Elizabeth: Rafe --

Rafe: This is a joke, right? I mean, it's a really bad joke.

Elizabeth: Listen to me.

Rafe: I mean, it's, like, a nightmare bad joke.

Elizabeth: Think of it as saving someone's life --

Rafe: I am.

Elizabeth: Saving someone's soul.

Rafe: I am -- mine.

Elizabeth: No, Rafe, look, I know -- I know you love Alison --

Rafe: Yeah, I do.

Elizabeth: And she loves you so much, and she's happy, and I want her to stay that way.

Rafe: Ok, then, you know what? What you're doing doesn't make any sense at all.

Elizabeth: No, I know exactly what I'm doing. You just don't understand.

Rafe: I don't understand what? What?

Elizabeth: You don't understand what happens when a vampire sleeps with a slayer.

Rafe: Ok, what? What happens?

Elizabeth: All the symptoms disappear.

Rafe: They what?

Elizabeth: The hunger and the cravings --

Rafe: What -- this is crazy. Who told you that?

Elizabeth: No, listen --

Rafe: That doesn't make any sense.

Elizabeth: Rafe, you're the only one that can help me. You can do two things. You can kill me, or you can have sex with me.

Rafe: Elizabeth --

Elizabeth: No.

Rafe: Elizabeth --

Alison: Mother, I went to -- mother! Rafe!

Rafe: Hey, Alison.

Elizabeth: Alison, listen, I can explain this.

Alison: Yeah, please do explain.

Elizabeth: It is not what it looks like.

Alison: Really? Why don't you give me your version of what you think it looks like.

Rafe: See, here's the thing. Somehow your mother got this crazy idea that if she had sex with a slayer, all her vampire symptoms would be cured.

Alison: What?

Elizabeth: It's true. No, it's true. I have proof. If a vampire makes love with a slayer, all of your symptoms vanish.

Alison: Do you know anything about this?

Rafe: No, it's news to me.

Elizabeth: No, but, listen, you know how desperate I was. My God, Alison, I tried to kill myself. I can't handle this anymore. And when I found that out, I just needed Rafe -- he was just here. I was just trying to get him to help cure me!

Alison: Mother, shut up! God! Rafe, I'm so sorry. I thought that maybe my mother needed your help. I didn't know she needed your --

Elizabeth: I did! I do! I know, it's unusual.

Alison: Oh, my -- "unusual"? Yeah, it's a little unusual. It's sick! You're embarrassing yourself!

Elizabeth: Alison, it's my last hope. It's my only hope. It was going to change everything.

Alison: Right -- for you. Of course. It's always about you. You, you, you. You need hope. This is your last thing. This is all about you. I'm so sick of that. You asked me to bring over the man that I love, the man of my life, and little did I know you had this planned all along?

Elizabeth: No! No, Alison.

Rafe: Ok, that's enough.

Alison: No, it's not. I'm not finished yet.

Rafe: Yes, you are. Elizabeth, you didn't mean it, did you?

Elizabeth: No. Baby, I'm sorry.

Rafe: All right, come on.

Elizabeth: You don't understand.

Alison: Oh, right.

Rafe: You know what you need to do? Keep just gulping that water of yours because this other crazy idea of yours, it was never going to help you, it was never an option, all right?

Elizabeth: You guys, wait. Please, you don't understand. All I -- please. I'm begging you. Don't leave, please. I'm so sorry. Just don't leave, ok? Don't leave.

Tess: You know that box was right next to the bed when I woke up this morning. I mean, who else could have put there while I was sleeping?

Jack: Yeah. You really don't know, do you?

Tess: No.

Jack: Tess, when you opened that music box --

Tess: Something strange happens, something I can't remember?

Jack: What?

Tess: Like -- it's like a dream. I'm asleep, and a part of me is still awake in a dark corner somewhere, but the other part of me wakes up and then it feels like -- Jack, what happens when I open this music box? Why can't I remember?

Jack: It probably reminds you of bad memories. See, Livvie had a music box just like this, and she felt really strong about it, too.

Tess: Livvie.

Jack: And I know how close you and Livvie were, anyway, so I guess I had no right to try to get rid of the music box.

Tess: That's all right. Jack, you were trying to help me, to keep me from hearing the music that makes me forget, that makes --

Jack: So maybe -- hey, Tess, maybe I'll just keep it.

Tess: Yeah.

Jack: Ok?

Tess: Mm-hmm. Yeah, yeah. You take it because I really love it and I want it, but now that I remember, the song -- there's something about it that isn't right, Jack.

Jack: Promise me that you will not open this unless i'm with you.

Tess: I promise. Please, just hide it from me, please. I won't ever open it, not alone, I promise. I promise, Jack, please --

Jack: Hey --

Tess: Please, just hold me.

Jack: Ok, I'm going to hold you.

Tess: Just hold me, hold me.

Jack: I got you, I got you. You're safe, ok? I'm going to take care of you. Just trust me.

Ian: Well, there goes nothing. Whew.

Lucy: Ok. So far so -- good. No. No. Are you ok? Is -- what is it? Uh -- do you want me to get you something? What can I do? Ian, what do you want me to do for you right at this --

oh! Oh! Ok. Ok, why don't I go get you your water. Let me get your water -- oh! Ian, listen to me. Let me make you feel better, ok? Let me make you feel better. Let me make you feel better. I can do that, you know? Let me make you feel better. Uh -- Ian. Ian -- no!

[Ian screams]

Lucy: Ian, listen to me! You got to stop -- Ian, honey! Oh! Oh! No! Ian, no. Stop. Ian, no. You don't want to do this. Ian, just stop. Ian, no! Stop! Just stop. Please stop!

Alison: You're sorry?

Elizabeth: I am. I mean that, Alison, I do.

Alison: Right, and even if believed you, that makes everything ok?

Elizabeth: Alison, I've lost everything -- my marriage, my family, my future. I don't -- I have absolutely no future, no hope, no help. Everything is right there in that bottle. That's all that I have. I can drink that, and it'll just keep me alive, one tortured day after another after another. That's how it's going to continue to be for me. It's never going to change!

Alison: Oh, my God.

Rafe: Wait, you know what? You're wrong about that, though.

Elizabeth: What?

Rafe: Well, there is a way. We have to kill Caleb, and then you go back to normal.

Elizabeth: Yeah, but that doesn't have anything -- it's never going to happen. That's impossible.

Alison: Oh, mother, please --

Elizabeth: And even if it does, you know, it doesn't even -- oh, it's not going to save me, anyway. It just -- oh, my God, I'm just starting to lose my mind!

Rafe: "Starting"?

Elizabeth: You don't care. And I don't blame you. And I know that you, you hate me.

Alison: Mother, please, just don't. No excuses, ok? I have heard a lifetime's worth.

Alison: Caleb is everywhere. He's everywhere. I mean, look what he's already done to my mother. She tries to seduce you just so she can get free? Give me a break. And after you left Jack's house, Tess comes out with some music box. She starts listening to it, to the music. And guess who pops out of her.

Rafe: Livvie.

Alison: Yeah, Livvie. We both know that he's not going to stop on his own. What do we do? I don't know what to do.

Rafe: What do you do? You do exactly what you always do -- you follow your heart. All right, just do whatever you need to do.

Alison: I'll do what I have to do.

Rafe: All right.

Rafe: Ok, Jack, it's time to talk.

Alison: Mother, look at me. Look at me.

Elizabeth: No, I can't. I'm so sorry. I always do everything wrong, everything.

Alison: Yes, sometimes.

Elizabeth: Are you ever going to be able to forgive me?

Alison: This might take a very long, long time.

Elizabeth: As long as there is hope for that, I will wait.

Tess: Jack, please, don't ever let go.

Jack: Well, if i don't let go, I won't be able to give you your present.

Tess: Present?

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Tess: Why?

Jack: Let's just say because I love you. That's a good enough reason, right? So open it.

Tess: Jack!

Jack: So what do you think? It's just like your old one.

Tess: Yes, it's exactly the same.

Jack: Yeah, I just thought times have kind of been tough, and I thought this might help.

Tess: It -- it does, it helps a lot, and I love you a lot.

Jack: I love you, too.

Tess: Thank you. She's back. We are going to have one of our own soon, too.

[Phone rings]

Jack: Hello.

Rafe: Hey, it's Rafe. So, you got the music box?

Jack: Yeah, yeah. It's more like the music box found us.

Rafe: All right, well, guess what -- this is the sign we've been waiting for. It's time.

Jack: Right. Right, I know this is the only way to go. As much as I love her, I have to send Tess out, alone.

Ian: Let me go.

Lucy: No, never. Ian -- look at me. Look at me! Listen to me. Caleb will not win. Do you hear me? We will not let him win. You are mine, and I belong to you. You -- you have to fight this. You have to fight for us, for the future we can have together and for what we might be. Listen to me -- Ian, fight for Danny! Your son needs you. He needs you so much. You have to fight for him. And you have to fight for your life back. Don't you want your life back? You have to fight to be a doctor again, fight for what you love. You heal people. You don't hurt people! You don't destroy the people you love. Ian, please, this isn't you. Come back to me the way you are. You told me that we have a future together. You said that, and I believed that because I believe in you. Oh! I believe in you. You will not hurt me. Ian -- oh, my God. You have to keep fighting this. That's the way. You have to come back to me because you're the man that I love with all my soul. Will you please, just breathe, Ian. Just breathe. Oh, please, please come back to me. Come back. Ian, please.

Ian: Lucy.

Lucy: Yeah. Yeah. I'm here.

Ian: Oh, God, Lucy.

Lucy: I know, I know. It's ok. It's ok. It's all right. You're you and I'm me and we're us. It's ok.

Ian: Dear God, I'm --

Lucy: No, don't, shh, shh. It's ok. We're all right. We're going to be ok, ok? Just please don't ever do that to me again, never. Never.

>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "Port Charles: Surrender."

>> On the next "Port Charles" --

Rafe: I can't be the one to kill Caleb.

Ian: And if you're not the one, then who?

Rafe: It's up to you. It's time to make your first kill.

Reese: I've got a gift for you.

Ricky: Ooh, is it a nice, big surprise?

Reese: Oh, yeah.
