Philip: Seems like every time I look at you tonight you're crying.
Chloe: Tears of happiness. I always thought that when I read "Tears of Happiness" -- what a crock. But tonight you prove to me that they really do exist.
Philip: I just carved our initials on that tree.
Chloe: But it was so much more than that. You took this angry outsider, and you made her feel like a girl in a movie or a book, a happy movie or a book.
Philip: That's what you deserve to be. What gets me is that you don't even realize how special you are.
Chloe: All my life the word special was code for "too weird for words." And now here you are, this great-looking guy with a normal life, and you make me believe like you really, actually want me around.
Philip: Oh, that's only half-true.
Chloe: Oh, I'm sorry.
Philip: Oh, no, Chloe, I want you around forever. That's so true, but you said I had a normal life, and that's not true at all. Except for you, there's nothing normal at all about my life.
Brenda: We got to get the labs back on 23.
Woman: I'll grab them.
Nancy: Hey, Lexie, it's me -- Nancy Wesley. Being a patient bores me silly. How about you?
Lexie: Where am I?
Nancy: University Hospital.
Lexie: A hospital? Where the babies were switched. The babies were switched. Don't you see? They switched the babies. Now it all makes sense.
Nancy: Lexie, who's they?
Stefano: Alexandra! Hush.
Nancy: I-I think she's drugged, delirious, or something.
Lexie: That's why I'm so sick.
Stefano: Yes, that's right, and that's why she should not be disturbed.
Nancy: But I'm a patient.
Craig: What's going on? Hey.
Lexie: How did it happen?
Craig: Lexie, Lexie, it's Craig. What's going on?
Lexie: They switched the babies. I don't know how they switched.
Craig: They what?
Stefano: All right, that's it -- Iíve had enough of this incompetence. I want everyone to leave this room!
Abe: Brenda. Brenda! I just heard my Wife was brought in here. How is she? What happened to her?
Glen: Can't believe this town.
Barb: Would you slow down?
Glen: Feel like Iím in the damned twilight zone here. First everyone lies to me about my own kid. Then when I'm just about to get the DNA samples to prove that he's mine, someone blows up the fricking lab.
Barb: We never should've come here.
Barb: You heard me. I think that lab blowing up was a sign, a big loud sign saying we should just get the hell out of here.
Glen: I can't believe you just said that.
Barb: Yeah? Well, I'll say it again. We should forget all this and just leave that baby where he is.
Hope: Dear God, please help me find my Son, help my find my baby! Please, oh, God!
Harry: All right, now the search dogs and the extra spotlights you wanted are on the way.
Bo: Great. Concentrate the search downriver and work your way back.
Harry: All right. Hey, Bo, you know I've never seen so many volunteers? We have the manpower to cover every inch of the area. We're going to find your Son.
Bo: Right...unless he's underwater somewhere.
Man: I have your boy here, Bo.
Shawn-D: I came as soon as I heard.
Bo: I knew you would. You guys okay?
Bo: Hope? Hope, come here. Shawn's here.
Shawn-D: Mom, Iím sorry. We're going to find him, okay? We're going to find him.
Chloe: I Hope you didn't think that when I said that you have a normal life that Iíve forgotten how hard these past couple months have been for you. And I sure haven't been any help.
Philip: Don't say that. Come on, you're the only good thing in my life, the only thing that got me through the bad stuff.
Chloe: Yeah, but I could've done so much more. Philip, I've really been thinking about it. It's the one thing that's wrong with our relationship.
Philip: What are you talking about? There's nothing wrong with our relationship.
Chloe: There is. It's unbalanced. Every time we talk, we talk about me -- my problems, my feelings. And then you go and do wonderful thing after wonderful thing to make me happy. And then I tell you how unhappy I was.
Philip: That's not how I see it.
Chloe: Look at that tree.
Philip: Our tree.
Chloe: Yeah. You spend so much time making me happy, and I feel like --
Philip: Because I want to -- I want to make you happy. Look, don't you know that it makes me happy to see you smile?
Chloe: I'm glad, but you know what would make me feel better?
Chloe: Is if I could help you. If you could tell me everything like I tell you.
Philip: I do.
Chloe: No, Philip, you donít. You -- you tell me how great I am every time we talk, but I want to hear about your feelings, your problems. Like tonight at dinner, you were obviously upset that your Mother's working at that diner, and you never told me about that. Why?
Philip: Why? Because I was embarrassed.
Abe: Look, where is she?
Brenda: It's okay, Abe. It's okay. Lexie was injured in one of the explosions, but she's stable, she's regaining consciousness.
Abe: Thank God.
Brenda: Dr. Wesley is in with her now. He'll be right out to talk to you and tell you when you can go in.
Abe: Thank you.
Brenda: You know we wouldn't let anything happen to her, right? Hey, big guy, you're up kind of late, aren't you? I'm sure I can find someone to look after him for you.
Abe: Uh, no, I want to take him in to see his Mom. I think it'll do her good.
Brenda: Oh, I think you're right, but we need to talk to Dr. Wesley about that.
Roman: Brenda! Brenda! It's a rescue volunteer. I think it's a sprained ankle, but he needs to get the x-ray.
Brenda: Thank you, Dr. Brady.
Roman: Well, I'm sorry, just trying to speed things up so I can get back.
Brenda: Please call if you find the baby.
Abe: What, uh, what baby is she talking about? What the hell's going on here?
Craig: Who the hell do you think you're talking to?
Stefano: I am deeply concerned about my Daughter's care.
Lexie: Switched. How? Switched. How?
Craig: I am deeply concerned about her level of consciousness and her vitals. Now why don't you get the hell out of here?
Stefano: Sweetheart. Sweetheart, it's me -- it's me, your Father. Alexandra, you must wake up. It's imperative. Wake up. Come on, come on.
Stefano: Yes, look, sweetheart, do it for your Son's sake.
Lexie: Father? The babies were switched. Father, switched.
Craig: What is she saying? What is she talking about?
Nancy: Craig, she's been talking about that since she got in here.
Craig: She's trying to communicate something. She seems very agitated.
Stefano: Of course she is agitated. A strange man has come to town and declared himself the biological father of her Son. Then he insists on having a DNA test and then threatens to take her child away from her. Now she's under sedation. Of course she's having nightmares, so would you please leave me alone with her?
Craig: I think it's time you go up to the third floor and you have your hearing checked. I told you get the hell out of here. Now, you can either leave, or Iím calling security. Either way, in three seconds one or the other's going to happen. You got it?
Lexie: Oh, the babies were switched, switched.
Craig: What is she talking about?
Glen: What the hell are you talking about?
Barb: Just please keep your eyes on the road.
Glen: So you just want me to forget about my own Son, huh?
Barb: No, I want you to stop and think for one minute. Our home life is being turned upside down.
Glen: Because someone's taking my Son away from me, my own flesh and blood.
Barb: Okay! Okay, so he's your flesh and blood, but he's their heart and soul! And they're his.
Glen: Because I never knew.
Barb: Glen, news flash -- life isn't fair, but if you take him now, then what are you doing to him, to your flesh and blood?
Glen: He'll be okay. He's just a baby.
Barb: Come on, he's almost a year old. That woman is his Mother, his life. I mean, you saw him, Glen. He's happy. And although God knows how, he's healthy. But I think he's healthy because of her, because she loves him so much.
Glen: I never got that chance.
Barb: Is this about you or him? Those people have loved that kid every day and night of his life. What have you done except hit the sack with that stupid bitch Marlow?
Glen: Oh, I see, this is all about your concern for my precious Son's happiness, huh?
Barb: No. No, no, no, no. I am no hypocrite. I'm worried about me.
Glen: Yeah, that's a change of pace.
Barb: You know what, Glen? I have tried to stand by you, but if we don't get out of this town, I could lose my job.
Glen: Oh, you're so concerned about your career, aren't you?
Barb: My career helps pay for our rent, pay for our life together! Our life! The way it is now, not the way you're looking to change it. And you know what? Cards on the table -- the last thing I need is to be stuck with some one-year-old kid that isn't even mine!
Belle: Dad, what are you doing here?
John: Same thing you are, sweetheart. Let's go find that baby.
Bo: We tried to call you. We didn't want you to hear on the news.
Shawn-D: Marlena told us. I was over at Belle's -- just came with me, didn't even think twice.
Belle: I saw Hope looking up at the bridge, thinking of how far J.T. must have fallen.
Belle: Dad, it must be so horrible -- your own baby going through something like this.
John: Look, sweetheart, there's about a million people helping out with the rescue here. After everything you've been through tonight, what do you --
Belle: I'm not leaving, okay? If J.T. were my little brother, Shawn wouldn't leave until we found him. I'm not going anywhere anyway. I love that little guy as if he were my own brother.
Hope: Look at all these people.
Bo: They're all here to help.
Hope: I know, but it scares me -- all these people and nobody's found him, Bo.
Bo: No, it's a good thing. We know he didn't land on the shore or hit one of the pylons. He wasn't underneath the car.
Shawn-D: Yeah, maybe he just floated downstream.
Bo: And that's where we're looking. We've got so many people on this search. They can search again for miles.
Hope: But why isn't it we've heard him cry? If he was still --
Bo: Hope, Hope.
Hope: I'm so scared. He has to be crying, Bo.
Shawn-D: Come on, it's J.T. He could've slept through this whole thing. Mom, please stop crying, all right? Mom, we're going to find him. I promise. I promise.
Chloe: Philip, you never have to be embarrassed about telling me anything. Besides, what's embarrassing about it?
Philip: So you did not even see.
Chloe: See what?
Philip: That it could be embarrassing to say your Mother slings hash for a living.
Chloe: But she does. I still don't get it.
Philip: Chloe, it's like I don't want my friends going in there to order tuna melts from my Mom. It's hard. It doesn't exactly enhance your image, you know?
Chloe: Gee, I distinctly remember someone telling me not to care what the other kids think. Now, who was that person?
Philip: I'm not saying it's bad to be a waitress.
Chloe: How egalitarian of you.
Philip: She used to be President of Titan, and everybody knows that. It's like my family problems are a cartoon for everybody to watch and laugh at.
Chloe: Okay, I get that.
Philip: I just don't like to think about people laughing at her.
Chloe: But there's nothing to laugh at. She's working.
Philip: Not everybody is like you, Chloe.
Chloe: Well, why don't you talk to your Dad? Maybe he could buy her a restaurant or give her her old job back.
Philip: Oh, yeah, like that's going to work.
Chloe: Well, he owns the whole world, doesn't he? He can do anything he wants.
Philip: Listen... one -- he's not going to do anything to help her ever. Two -- Iím not going to ask him for any favors. He's not quite the man I thought he was.
Chloe: I've never heard you say that before.
Philip: Chloe, it's not just what he's doing to my Mom. I'm just disappointed in him, you know?
Chloe: Because of how he feels about me, right? He hates me, doesn't he?
Nancy: Excuse me, Mr. DiMera? You really don't have to worry about Lexie. My Husband is won--
Stefano: What did she say? Tell me everything that she said.
Nancy: Well, you heard her. She was just talking about babies.
Stefano: Why were you there? You should not have been there.
Nancy: I'm a patient here. Look, can I help you?
Stefano: You want to help? Then tell no one what you heard. Understand? No one.
Craig: Lexie, Lexie, Lexie, calm down. Lexie.
Lexie: You have to help me.
Craig: I know. Listen, you're in the hospital, sweetheart. You've had an accident. Calm down.
Lexie: My baby.
Craig: He's fine. Lexie, he's fine. Try to talk to me, sweetheart. What's wrong?
Lexie: You don't understand.
Craig: Yes, I do.
Lexie: You don't know what happened.
Craig: I don't? Okay.
Lexie: You have to help me, please, please, please.
Craig: Listen, tell me what happened.
Abe: Oh, God. They still haven't found J.T., huh? I just can't imagine what Bo and Hope are going through right now. It must be a 50-foot drop. What do you think are his chances?
Roman: Doesn't look good. Doesn't look good at all, Abe.
Shawn-D: Mom, look, maybe it's time to take a break, okay? Mom?
Hope: Not till he's in my arms again, Shawn.
Bo: We don't have a choice. Just do it.
Harry: All right. Right.
Hope: What? What?
Bo: Come here.
Hope: Did you find him?
Bo: No, no. It's been a while.
Hope: I'm not giving up. We're not giving up!
Bo: Nobody's giving up. Nobody's giving up, but it's time. It's time to start dragging the river.
Hope: No. No! No! No! No!
Barb: Great, this helps. I see what you're doing here. You just walk away from me.
Glen: You said you didn't want my Son.
Barb: No, do you want your Son or some property that was taken from you? Do you want to just brand him as part of your herd or actually raise him, or is that my job? I mean, you can say "my" Son, "my" Son as much as you want, but I'm going to be the one up at night when he's barfing. I'm going to be the one to make sure there's milk in the refrigerator.
Glen: Don't you know that I think about all that, too, huh? You're the best thing that ever happened to me, Barb. I don't want to lose you, but I don't want to hurt my Son, either. What if he grows up, finds out he had a dad who didn't even want to know who he was?
Barb: I'm sorry. I shouldn't have popped on like that. This pressure's just getting to me, you know?
Glen: You don't think that I think about the carvers, what they've done for him, what kind of future they could give him?
Barb: I know. I also know, bottom line, you're a good guy, and you're going to do what's best.
Glen: Yeah, except right now I don't know what that is.
Abe: What the hell was going on in this town last night? I thought I was hearing thunder.
Roman: 10 verified explosions -- bomb squad's working overtime.
Abe: Who the hell would do something like that? Yeah, I guess we both know who'd do something like that.
Roman: You know, that's what I thought, but check this out -- Stefano was having dinner with Lexie at Tuscany when the bomb went off.
Stefano: Did I make myself perfectly clear?
Nancy: You can't threaten me.
Stefano: I can do it better than anyone. Now, you listen to me and listen to me very carefully. If I deem that my Daughter's recovery is jeopardized in any way, any way whatsoever, by your gossip, I will sue you and your Husband for every cent that you have. And believe me when I tell you I do not need money. I will do it simply to punish you.
Nancy: But I didn't do anything wrong.
Stefano: And you're not going to, or I will make you sorry in ways that you do not even know exist.
Craig: Stay with me, Lexie. Lexie, stay with me. Tell me how I can help you.
Glen: You said Iíd only get my kid back over your dead body. Whatever.
Bo: Hope, I want you to go home.
Bo: Yes, you know that's what's best. I'll have Shawn take you home, okay? Get him out of here. You take care of one Son, I'll take care of the other.
Hope: I love you, Brady.
Bo: I know. We're going to get J.T. back. We will. Don't give up.
Hope: What would I do without you?
Bo: You'll never have to find out. Shawn? Come here. Take your Mom home, okay? I'll call you as soon as there's any news. Go on.
John: Sweetheart, why don't you go with them? I'll stay here with Bo. I love you.
John: Take your own advice, Bo -- don't give up.
Philip: How could my Father -- how can my Father hate you? He doesn't even know you.
Chloe: He knows enough, Philip, but it's okay. I can deal with it.
Philip: Well, I can't, okay? If my Father hates you, then Iíll never speak to him again. If he wants me to choose between the two of you, he's going to lose.
Chloe: Don't say that, Philip. I'm not going to be responsible for coming between you and your Father.
Philip: Why, because we have such a great relationship? That's what everyone thinks, including him. Just one person disagrees.
Chloe: But you love your Dad.
Philip: That doesn't mean I didn't see how he treats my Mom. It all started when he got back from the nursing home. She was so devoted to him, Chloe, the whole time he was in there, and then -- I don't know. As soon as he got out, there was this weird tension in between the two of them. And we all know that my Mom has done everything wrong, but, you know, in a way, he drove her to that. Now he acts like she doesn't even exist, like he could care less if -- if -- if he ever sees her again.
Chloe: And that hurts you a lot, doesn't it?
Philip: It's just stupid. I know it's the dumb thing that every kid wants when his parents split up, but I just want it to work out, you know? I just want to be a family again.
Shawn-D: Mom. Mom. Mom!
Shawn-D: Mom, let me get you a cup of tea or something.
Hope: What are these doing here? Jennifer should have put these on. He can't go out without his shoes on.
Shawn-D: Mom, you know Jen. She wouldn't do that.
Hope: Then what are these doing here? What?
Shawn-D: Maybe she just got it out of Patrickís room.
Hope: I have to make sure.
Shawn-D: I'll go with you.
Hope: No, just stay here. Just stay by the phone.
John: You all right, Bo? Yeah, right. Stupid question.
Bo: No, no, that's okay. Thanks for being here.
John: We go way back.
John: You know, Bo, I know what they mean when they say you're like a brother to me. Strange, isn't it? One time I thought you were. Now here we are in our toughest times, and I don't even know what the hell to say to you.
Bo: You don't need to say anything. I'm just glad you're here.
John: No place I'd rather be. I'm going to help you find your Son, Bo.
Chloe: Ooh, man. Adults. What they put us through.
Philip: And they're always talking about us disappointing them, right? You know, I heard my Dad talking to one of his friends on the phone the other day, saying something like, "parenthood is a continual lowering of expectations."
Chloe: I guess the same could be said for childhood.
Chloe: Look, Philip, I'm so sorry that this is causing you pain -- that your parents aren't together anymore.
Philip: That's okay. Getting used to it, I guess. I don't know if I'll ever get used to my Mom waiting tables at a diner... and Nicole walker being around so much.
Chloe: Do you think that maybe there's something going on between your Father and Nicole?
Philip: No. No way. I mean, she's closer to my age than his. Although...whenever he's there, you know, she's always by his side. I don't know what he's thinking these days. It's just like how he's always talking about how much he loves me and how happy he wants me to be. And how does he back that up? By destroying my life.
Chloe: What are you talking about?
Philip: I told you. He doesn't want me to see you anymore. I thought he realized how stupid that was when he invited you to dinner, but then I saw how he treated you.
Chloe: It did kind of feel like I was on trial.
Philip: How could you not? It was like he was cross-examining you -- all those questions, and the way he was staring you down?
Chloe: You know, the morning after the fire, he and I talked. He even took me home, so I actually thought that that was a good sign that maybe he changed his mind about me and would eventually forgive me for what I had done.
Philip: Well, those are two things Victor Kiriakis never does. He doesn't change his mind, and he doesn't forgive. Ever.
Roman: It doesn't make sense. I can see blowing up the power plant. That makes a big statement. But why blow up the eastside lab?
Abe: We're supposed to get the DNA results from that lab tomorrow morning.
Roman: Well, with all those chemicals inside, it went up like a fireball.
Abe: It's unbelievable, isn't it?
Nancy: Look, Mr. DiMera, I really don't know what you're getting so upset about. You see, Iím a patient, too, just like Lexie, and, well, she didn't say anything incriminating. She just kept talking about babies. I think maybe she was having this nightmare, and I really don't know what you're getting so upset about because I was just, um, I, um, I, uh... I--
Stefano: I will decide whether or not you have hurt my Daughter, and you don't want me to decide that you have.
Craig: Lexie, it's oxygen. It'll help you breathe. Lexie, let -- Lexie, calm down.
Barb: That'll finally shut her up.
Lexie: I can't breathe --
Craig: Lexie, you've got to let me help you. Lexie!
Shawn-D: Think I should go talk to her?
Belle: She wanted you to wait by the phone.
Shawn-D: Yeah. You know, I should still be out there looking for him right now. I can't stand this waiting around.
Belle: Shawn, are you --
Shawn-D: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'm fine.
Belle: You know, I'm going to go into the kitchen and make a cup of tea for your Mom or something --
Shawn-D: No, no, donít. Don't go, all right?
Shawn-D: I-I lied. I'm not doing all that well.
Shawn-D: He can't die. He's got to live. He's got to. I love that guy. I really do.
Belle: I know. I know.
Hope: What? What? Ooh, that was a big slurp. Yeah. Hey, who do we have here? Look who we have here. Huh? What do you have? [Singing]
Hope: Yeah. What's this? How about this big guy? Look at this big guy over here. Huh? Or are you just interested in your teething ring? Huh? All those teeth you're getting. Huh? Bouncy, bouncy.
Hope: Oh, dear God, don't take him away. He came into this world so damaged, and we fixed that. He came into this world not knowing who his father is, and we fixed that. He's a miracle baby. He's here to change our world, lord. Please...please let him finish what he's meant to do. Please don't take him away. Please, please, let him live. Let him live.
Bo: What the hell is taking so long? Come on!
John: Just another minute. They're getting the equipment set up.
Bo: I want to get this part over with.
John: I know. I know.
Bo: I'm worried about Hope and Shawn. They've both been there for J.T. from the very beginning. They stood by him...unlike me.
John: Hey, forget about it. You had a lot to deal with, and you dealt with it. And you came back and you proved to everybody including myself how much you love that baby. Now I know why you wouldn't even let me get close to him.
Bo: All that's behind us now.
John: That's a fact. Now we can count on each other to get through this no matter what.
Harry: Bo, we're ready to start.
Bo: Okay, let's do it.
Barb: Penny for your thoughts.
Glen: I'm thinking, uh, maybe you're right, you know. Abe and Lexie have given my Son a really good home. Maybe we should leave him.
Barb: Well, if it means anything to you, I think you're doing the right thing. And then someday when we're ready, we'll have our own baby.
Glen: Barb, did you see that?
Glen: Something over there. On the riverbank.
Craig: Lexie, Lexie -- I need some help in here now! Lexie, Lexie --
Abe: What is it? What's wrong?
Craig: I need some drugs.
Stefano: If you do anything to hurt my Daughter, I will destroy you.
Craig: Get the hell out of here.
Philip: I just want you to know that I will never let my Dad come between us. If he tries, we'll run away.
Chloe: Run away?
Philip: Yeah, why not? We'll get out of Salem, go someplace you can study opera.
Chloe: Philip, I can't -- look at that.
Philip: What is it?
Chloe: Over there, where those people are.
Philip: What are they doing?
Chloe: I don't know. I can't tell. Hmm.
Philip: Hey, look, I meant what I said about my Dad, okay?
Chloe: Wait a minute, Philip. I really want to see what's going on.
Glen: Oh, my God, that looks like -- no, it can't be.
John: It's all set up. We're getting started. Bo, you sure you want to be here for this?
Bo: No matter what, I want to know what happened to --
Bo: I want to hold you in my arms again one more time, J.T.
Shawn-D: Thanks for being here, Belle.
Belle: Hey, I am here as long as you need me, just like you were there for me when we were in the elevator.
Shawn-D: Yeah... some night, huh?
Belle: Some night.
Shawn-D: I'm going to go check on my Mom. I got to see if she's all right.
Belle: Shawn, I don't want to butt in, but maybe she needs to be alone right now.
Shawn-D: Yeah. You know, you're probably right. Probably shouldn't let her see me like this. I should pull it together. I'll give us both another minute.
Belle: That's a good idea.
Shawn-D: Yeah. There's something I want to do first.
Hope: I believe in the power of prayer. You gave me a miracle once. You brought J.T. back to me. Dear God, please...give me another miracle. I never got a chance to say goodbye to him. You wouldn't do that to me, would you, God? Please, I'm begging you. Let him live. Let us find him.
Glen: It's a baby.
Barb: What in the hell is a baby doing out here all alone? Is it alive?
Glen: I don't know. He's not moving. He's too cold.
Barb: Use my Jacket.
Glen: Oh, my God, it's Isaac. That's my son.
