elizabeth: I can never thank you enough for trusting me with the truth. lord knows I haven't been the prime example of a good mother --

lucy: No --

elizabeth: But just the thought of alison being dead --

lucy: I know, but -- we understand completely, and we really felt we had to tell you.

ian: Yeah, but you -- remember, you can't tell anyone -- absolutely no one --

elizabeth: Oh, no, no --

ian: That she's still alive.

Elizabeth: No, I know. I will not breathe a word.

Lucy: And hopefully you won't have to because hopefully this'll all be over very soon.

Elizabeth: Let's hope. Could you guys do me a favor, though? will you please tell alison that I love her?

Lucy: You know, I think she already knows that.

elizabeth: Well, I'm going to go now. I've taken up enough of your time. It's getting late.

Ian: I'll -- I'll walk you out.

Elizabeth: Ok.

elizabeth: How -- how is she? how's lucy doing?

Ian: Good. You know, she's better. She's --

elizabeth: And how about you?

ian: I'm ok.

Elizabeth: Good. I'm glad. Don't you just get tired of being so noble? just don't you long to give in to the craving?

elizabeth: Are you sure you're all right?

Ian: What? I -- no, I'm fine. I -- I'm good.

Elizabeth: Ok. Good night.

ian: Good night.

[Ian sighs]

ian: What's going on with me?

joshua: How are you doing, ricky? Are you ready for the big interview? You all set for all the cameras, the spotlight?

ricky: Joshua, don't worry about it, ok? I can handle it. I'll have that producer forget there ever was a stephen clay, all right?

joshua: Good. what about the other piece of business?

ricky: What other piece of business?

Joshua: You understand this, ricardo -- when I ask you to do something for me, I'm not simply going to forget that I asked. I'm talking about your little friend casey, ousosoon-to-be wayward angel. what's up?

ricky: I can't do it. All right? I can't get casey sent back. I just can'T.

Joshua: Well, I can't say I'm not disappointed.

ricky: Thank you.

joshua: I understand.

Ricky: Thank you very much. I knew you would.

Joshua: It's a great pity. you had such potential.

ricky: What do you mean, "had"?

joshua: You leave me no choice, kid. I've got to find myself another lead singer.

jamal: Come on, case. Talk about getting knocked on your butt. I mean, I was so sure it wouldn't happen to me. No, no, not jamal woods. I mean, I'm a bulletproof vest. Don't you know that? I'm a -- nothing can touch me. I'm just, you know --

casey: Hey, jamal --

jamal: I'm just all of that, you know what I'm saying? But, look, I guess I found out that I'm human, right? It just took me being turned into a vampire to figure that out.

That's what's so funny.

[Jamal laughs]

casey: I'm sorry.

Jamal: Hey, you know, whatever. It happens. you know? So you just take care of yourself, all right?

Casey: No, no, no. Wait, wait, let me help you!

Jamal: Help me?

Casey: Yes.

Jamal: Casey, isn't it a little bit too late for that?

Casey: No, no, no, it's never too late. It's not too late.

Jamal: Really? Well, yes, I'd love some help. Can you turn back the hands of time? No? ok, maybe can you create some kind of miracle and make me human again? can you do that? no? Casey, what can you do f me? huh? What can you do? what can you do for me, casey? I'm waiting. What? What can you do?

[Casey snaps fingers]

casey: That's a very good question. I don't know, jamal. I can stop time right now. That's what I can do. ok, guys. I need an answer here. Jamal needs my help. he needs it right now. so, throw me a bone, will you, ok? What do I do?

caleb: I'm sorry, livvie. There's no antidote, no -- there's no cure for your poisoned fangs.

livvie: That doesn't matter to you, right? You -- you do understand?

caleb: The longer I'm mortal, the more accustomed I grow to it.

livvie: What are you saying?

Caleb: The thought of feeding on blood -- it's something I can't do anymore.

livvie: Oh, my god.

Caleb: It never would have worked out. We can't be together.

Livvie: No --

caleb: Listen to me.

Livvie: No --

caleb: You're going to find someone else, one of your own kind. You'll see --

livvie: No, no, I don't want anyone else!

Caleb: I'm sorry. I'm mortal now.

livvie: No --

caleb: I need to be with mortals.

Livvie: Where are you going? No, please, caleb. no, don't leave me, please! caleb? oh, god. it was just a nightmare.

kevin: Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: I -- I want to apologize. My behavior at alison's memorial was -- was deplorable. I completely lost control.

Kevin: Oh, you mean when you pointed your finger at my daughter, screamed "murderer," and sent her fleeing into the woods?

elizabeth: I lost my head. I'm sorry. I do want you to know I don't blame you. I -- I know that you had no control over this.

kevin: That's very charitable.

Elizabeth: Well, alison was always so selfless and good-hearted. she wouldn't want what happened to -- to come between us. well, why are you looking at me like that?

Kevin: You really are something.

Elizabeth: Excuse me?

kevin: I've been thinking about you.

Elizabeth: Have you?

Kevin: Mm-hmm. you were disinherited by your dead billionaire husband, married a rock star who turned out to be a vampire. my daughter murdered your daughter, and you stabbed me. but now you're, what, coming on to me?

elizabeth: It's not so bad.

kevin: You know, in my line of work, I've come across every kind of whack job humanity has to offer, but you, elizabeth, are the single most screwed up woman I have ever met.

elizabh: But that's what you like about me, isn't it? I think you like your women a little crazy, a little unpredictable.

ian: So, how do you feel now?

Lucy: Now? I feel a lot better.

ian: I mean, how -- how are you feeling now?

Lucy: I'm feeling better. I -- I don't think I'm ready to go out and conquer the world yet, but I'm getting there, because -- all right, those transfusions seem to be working some.

ian: You're going to have another one in the morning, so you'll feel even better.

Lucy: I know that. But that's not what it is. I feel better because -- because of you. You make me think that I can be better.

ian: I'd do anything for you.

Lucy: Really? Anything?

ian: What do you have in mind?

Lucy: Wine. could I -- could we just, you know, have relaxation in one little glass of wine, doctor? please, just one glass of wine?

Ian: I don't think that's a problem.

lucy: Really? Will you join me?

ian: Yeah, why not? why not?

[Glass breaks]

ricky: Don't do this, joshua. You know I'm good. You know I got the chops. Let's not let this stupid casey thing ruin all that.

joshua: You got a lot going for you, ricky. You're good-looking. You're talented. So are a lot of other kids out there, and they'll do whatever it takes to make it happen.

caz: Hey, josh, I was hoping to find you here, man.

joshua: Caz.

Caz: Hey, rick, what's up?

Ricky: Hey.

caz: Um -- hey, I got a few ideas I wanted to run by you --

joshua: I look forward to hearing those, caz. But right now, I've got a few ideas of my own -- a few ideas you might look forward to hearing, too, also. you stick around. I'll talk y you later, caz.

Caz: Sounds awesome, man. I'll be around.

joshua: He's a good man. He's got something special.

ricky: What are you getting at, joshua?

Joshua: Wake up, garza. Drummers are a dime a dozen. but a bass player who's got a unique look -- that's a rare find. That's what we need.

ricky: No, I am what you need, all right? I'm talented, I'm ambitious, and I got the energy. I will do whatever it takes to put the experience on the map.

joshua: Prove it.

Ricky: Give me a chance. Give me a chance --

joshua: This isn't about chances. This is about a question, one very big question. Do you want it bad enough to make the angel fall?

casey: Maybe you can help him live with this. Yeah. Yeah, I'll just -- I'll just make it easier for you. that's it. here we go.

[Snaps fingers]

Jamal: Hmm?

Casey: No, I can't turn back time, ok?

Jamal: What can you do for me?

Casey: But you know what? It doesn't mean there's not any hope. Ok? There are vampires --

jamal: Oh, boy.

Casey: Who have been cured, jamal.

Jamal: Not anymore, casey.

Casey: You know, in the meantime, you can't let this ruin your whole life. I mean, look at ian.

jamal: Ian?

Casey: Yes, ian. Ian has not taken a bite out of anyone because --

jamal: Ooh.

Casey: He refuses to give in!

Jamal: Oh, and he has a great life for himself now, doesn't he, casey?

Casey: Listen, jamal --

jamal: This is crazy.

Casey: Jamal, listen, ok? You could use your new powers. Yeah -- no, listen. You could use your new powers to take down joshua and his whole crew. you could be -- you could be a good vampire. jamal -- hey, what --

jamal: Oh!

Casey: Jamal? jamal, what's wrong?

Jamal: It's starting.

casey: Starting? What's starting? What?

jamal: I'm turning into a monster.

livvie: Caleb! I've looked everywhere. I've looked everywhere. I can't find him. oh, no.

Caleb: Hey. I'm right here.

Livvie: Oh, my god. oh, my god.

caleb: Hey. Hey. what's this all about?

Livvie: Where have you been?

caleb: Where have I been? I just -- I just needed to get some air.

Livvie: I'm so scared.

caleb: I can see that. What's wrong?

Livvie: Can I ask you something?

caleb: Yeah, of course. You can ask me anything.

Livvie: Do you still want to go back to, you know, the way you were?

Caleb: I want that more than anything in the world. why would you even ask me that?

livvie: Because I had -- I had this dream that the thought of my feeding disgted you.

caleb: What?

Livvie: Yeah, that -- that you wanted to stay mortal and you liked it. You liked it.

caleb: Olivia -- olivia, sweetheart, that couldn't happen. not in a million years could that happen.

Livvie: I was just so scared. I was afraid.

caleb: What were you afraid of?

livvie: You know, when we were making love --

caleb: I know, I know. You get scared.

Livvie: No, I just feel like my passion is so strong, the urge is so strong, that I -- I might not be able to control myself. I -- I'm -- I'm going to give in. I know. I know I'm going to give in to it. I'm just -- I'm scared.

Caleb: Then I die a happy man.

Livvie: Caleb --

caleb: I can't think of a better way to go than with you in my arms. come here.

livvie: I love you.

Caleb: I love you. I love you.

lucy: Are you ok? What -- what happened?

Ian: Ah -- just me being clumsy. it's -- I -- I don't know.

Lucy: It's ok. It's no big deal. Come on, we can -- just leave it. we'll clean it up in the morning.

Ian: No, I got it. It's ok.

Lucy: No, I -- it's not ok. I -- I think it'll dry. Come on, please? come on, with me, right now. here. It's ok. come on, I think what we really need right now is just to relax.

[Ian sighs]

lucy: There. Mmm. isn't that much better?

[Ian sighs]

ian: Yeah.

lucy: Ok. see, no matter how crazy and how absolutely mad this world goes around us, when I sit here like this with you and you put your arms around me, I feel ok. Everything's going to be all right. I feel so very safe. just safe.

ian: I can't fight this anymore. can't fight this.

lucy: What is it? What's wrong? honey, I don't know about you,

elizabeth: No, no, no, no, no. No, I can'T. I can't do this. I can't make this mistake again.

kevin: What?

elizabeth: Hopping into bed too soon. It always leads to trouble.

kevin: Suit yourself.

elizabeth: Oh, what the hell.

jamal: You know, you keep saying all this -- this happening for a reason. would you tell me what this reason is?

casey: I don't know. I'm sorry. I'm sorry I don't have any answers, jamal. I'm sorry I couldn't stop this. I'm -- I'm sorry.

jamal: No, that's coo maybe you weren't meant to -- meant to stop it, you know?

Casey: No, jamal, wait. where are you going?

Jamal: I don't know. Where is it that vampires go, anyway?

ricky: I can't believe you're putting me in this position.

Joshua: I see that was my mistake.

Ricky: All right. fine. I'll try.

joshua: You'll have to do better than try.

Ricky: I'll do it, all right? I'll get casey sent back up.

Joshua: You made the right decision, rick

ricky: But know this -- it's not going to be easy, ok? casey's really into this guardian angel stuff. It won't be easy to get her to break the rules.

joshua: I have every confidence in you, ricardo. I know when you think about what's at stake, you'll find a way to make it happen.

casey: What's my point in being here, right? You send me down here to protect these people, and all I can do is pat them on their hands and say things like "have faith. everything happens for a reason," right? well, how is jamal or anybody else supposed to have faith when you just -- you keep letting terrible things happen to them? you know what? I've been good until now. Right? I've -- I've played by the stupid rules, and jamal got turned anyway. so things are going to change. things are going to change becae I'm going to do it my way.

[Music plays]

jamal: That's it for me. Not with them.

livvie: Don't even joke about dying. I couldn't bear the thought of losing you, especially if I was the one --

caleb: You won'T. You won't lose control.

livvie: How can you be so sure?

Caleb: Because you are strong. I know how strong you are. believe me, I know the torture of having those urges and not being able to satisfy them.

livvie: Ok, so what do I do?

caleb: You hold on till I can fix this. In the meantime, you don't be ashamed. You are a vampire. and vampires, no matter what, they eventually need to feed.

lucy: Are you ok? What -- what just happened here? Are you all right?

Ian: Yeah -- no, I -- i had a bad dream. uh --

lucy: Are you sure?

Ian: What are you doing up, anyway? You should rest. You should -- you should -- you should go sleep. you should --

lucy: I will. I'll -- I'll -- aren't you going to come?

Ian: I'll be inn n a minute, all right?

lucy: You need your rest, too, so -- ok, I'll go, but don't -- don't you be long.

Stay tuned for scenes from the next "port charles: Desire."

On the next "port charles" --

ricky: You're going to spend the rest of the day with me, and I'm not going to take no for an answer.
