Maggie: Good evening, John.
Marlena: Hi, Maggie.
Maggie: Oh, it's been too long, Marlena.
Marlena: Oh, honey, I called you last week to see if we could have lunch together.
Maggie: Oh, I'll tell you, I have tried to get five minutes to call you back, but a restaurateur's life is a little hectic. How are things on the home front? All quiet?
Maggie: Uh, it's a question, John.
John: Hmm. Meaning, is Brady still causing trouble? Isn't that what you mean? [Jazz music playing]
Hope: Hey! Hi.
Nicole: What's Hope Brady doing here with the Virgin Princess?
Greta: How's -- how's J.T.?
Hope: He's doing great.
Greta: Huh. That's interesting.
Hope: What's that?
Greta: Lexie Carver and Brandon Walker just came in together.
Hope: Oh, really? Well, they're friends from work.
Greta: Oh. Lexie's still on maternity leave, isn't she?
Hope: Yes, and let me tell you, she's not looking forward to going back to work, not one bit. Well, it's funny, but I hardly ever come to The Blue Note, but the last time that I was here, Lexie was with Brandon.
Greta: Huh. [Footsteps approaching]
Jennifer: Oh. Colin, hi.
Colin: Didn't mean to startle you, Jennifer. It's a cold night. You'll need more than that fire to keep you warm.
Shawn: Oh. Oh, it's a bit nippy for July, I tell you. Oh, I hope he didn't get himself lost now.
Shawn: Oh, it's himself. There he is. Oh, Colin. Oh, welcome, lad, welcome.
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our Lives.
Marlena: Maggie, we know that you have our best interests at heart...
John: Ha ha ha ha.
Marlena: Yes, and John is sensitive about our family life and wants very much to keep that all completely private, but things are, uh, things are good.
Marlena: I came in here so hungry. Is there a table ready?
Maggie: Ha ha. You bet. I won't say another word about it tonight. Um, call me?
Marlena: Yes, I will. Sure. Um, gosh, you know, the place looks just wonderful. You couldn't tell there'd been an explosion here.
Maggie: Well, I have a terrific genius of a designer who copied the last time it was torn apart. Ahem.
Maggie: Can I get you something from the bar?
Marlena: Maybe a glass of chardonnay for me, please.
John: Uh, I'll have a --
Maggie: Scotch on the rocks.
John: Just make sure --
Maggie: It's 25 years old or more or you'll send it back. I know, John.
John: You know, that woman is so full of...herself.
Marlena: She's not "that woman." She's Maggie. She's our dear friend, in case you've lost track of that tonight.
Marlena: Would you please hold my hand?
Marlena: My daughter is flying to Puerto Rico tonight.
John: And she's going to be just fine.
Marlena: I know.
Marlena: We raised her very well.
Marlena: It's just that a big part of her lives in my heart.
John: She is most definitely the light of both of our lives.
Marlena: Yes, she is.
John: See? Life is good. I think I told you we were going to get here, didn't I?
Marlena: You did.
Marlena: You had more faith than I did during the last year, but you're right. Things are better.
John: For a little while there, I thought that my son was going to come between us.
Marlena: He still may. I mean J.T. but I don't think that will happen as long as you keep your promise to let Bo raise his little boy as his own son.
Marlena: What's the matter?
John: You did it again. You beat me to the punch. Just when I was gearing myself up to -- to tell you something, you stepped right in there.
Marlena: What is it you want to tell me?
Brandon: Lexie? Where is that smile of yours? Your father promised you his protection. You're living in his mansion. You haven't heard from Glen and Barb again, so obviously they never had that other D.N.A. test done. You're home free. I thought you'd be more relaxed.
Lexie: No, I'm just feeling really uneasy. I mean, even though things are quiet, it just feels like the calm before the storm.
Brandon: Lex, when all hell broke loose and half the town got blown up, that was the storm, but you got through it.
Lexie: Yeah, well, easy for you to say, but I almost lost my baby, Brandon, and my husband. Abe's still mistrustful of me. He hates living in my father's house.
Brandon: But you can make that work, beautiful woman like you.
Lexie: What is that, a compliment?
Brandon: I'm just saying that in some areas of your life, you've got more power than you think, but when it comes to your son --
Lexie: No, don't. Don't say it. No, don't.
Brandon: No, Lexie, I don't want to see you lose Isaac. I know what you went through wanting a baby, but he's not yours. He's Hope's baby, and J.T. is Glen's. The way things are now is just wrong.
Lexie: So what am I supposed to do, Brandon -- just walk up to Hope and say, "guess what, Hope. I have your baby"?
Brandon: Of course not.
Lexie: Well, then what are you suggesting? Or are you just trying to make me feel even more upset and guilty than I already do?
Brandon: I've got a concept for you, Lex. Just hear me out a minute.
Greta: Brandon and Lexie are such attractive people you can't help but wonder if, you know...
Hope: Lexie is happily married. Don't give it another thought.
Hope: Now, what about you?
Greta: Oh, me? Oh, no. Pretty much the same.
Hope: Actually, there's a time I'm fascinated about, a time in your past, when I was your mother.
Shawn: Ohh. I thought you'd gotten lost trying to find us.
Colin: For a man who's run the wide earth, finding Salem was easy, Uncle Shawn. Now, is that the proper way to address a legend in his own time?
Shawn: None of this legend malarkey, huh? You know, I even -- I ain't even 6 feet deep yet. Huh?
Colin: 100 years will go by, and you'll still be remembered as a hero in the old country.
Shawn: Listen, you've done far more than I ever did. You have. Why'd you insist on, you know, meeting me out here in this godforsaken strip when there's this little Irish Pub -- cozy little Irish Pub, too -- that's about 5 miles down the road, and it's owned by himself right here?
Colin: Ah, the Brady Pub. I've longed to see it.
Shawn: You have? Well, then let's go. Ha ha. Your aunt Caroline, she will spoil you to death. Come on.
Colin: I'm afraid I can't. If I'm seen by the wrong people, it could cost me my life.
Colin: Just the thing for you, Jennifer.
Jennifer: Oh, really? What are you having there?
Colin: Well, I've got a bit of coffee.
Jennifer: Oh, yes. Ooh!
Colin: Just the thing to take the chill out of the cold African night.
Jennifer: Oh, thank you so much.
Colin: There you are.
Jennifer: Mmm. That is so warm. Thank you. This is so funny. All my life, whenever I thought of Africa, I always thought of this sweltering heat.
Colin: Most people find the cold evenings a bit of a rude shock. There are a great many misconceptions about Africa, mostly due to the crashing ignorance of certain countries about the world outside their borders. Your country in particular, I'm sorry to say.
Jennifer: Well, I'm sorry to say you're right. I mean, it's too bad more Americans don't visit here. It is so gorgeous.
Colin: Africa has a majesty that gets into your soul. A mystery, too. And danger.
Jennifer: You know, this is going to sound silly, but when you stepped out of the shadows, it was almost like you were from another time and place.
Colin: Must be the accent. Makes me seem exotic, eh? What?
Jennifer: Maybe. Maybe it's just the clothes that you're wearing.
Colin: The night, desert, man in a bomber jacket, lovely young girl by the campfire...
Jennifer: Sounds like a movie, like something out of "Lawrence of Arabia."
Colin: Ah, but I'm no T.E. Lawrence.
Jennifer: Now, come on, don't be modest. I have seen how the children here look up to you.
Colin: If anyone's a hero in this place, it's your father Bill.
Man: Here you go.
Nicole: You see it all, don't you, Jim?
Jim: Yeah, I guess.
Nicole: Or, uh, if you want to have an affair, too, I bet, huh? Those tables in the back were just made for a secret rendezvous, huh?
Jim: I wouldn't know, but maybe you ask your brother. He'll tell you.
Nicole: My brother?
Jim: Yeah, he's in the back right now with Commander Carver's wife.
Lexie: Look, Brandon, if you have any advice, I'll gladly listen. I just don't see how you can help me.
Brandon: Time is on your side, Lexie. The longer you keep the secret, the longer J.T. stays with Hope, which means she's going to bond with him more deeply, and the less likely she'll be to give him up.
Lexie: What if she wants both children?
Brandon: I don't think so. She knows how much you love Isaac, and as time goes by and she sees how much Isaac loves you and needs you, there's no way she'd make you give him up.
Lexie: Yeah. Yeah, you're right. You're right. Hope and I are best friends. She loves me. She wouldn't just rip my heart out. Then why do I still feel like if I don't just take my baby and just leave town now today, that I might lose him?
Brandon: Abe would never let you leave.
Lexie: Well, maybe he would if he knew the danger.
Brandon: Lexie, you can't tell Abe the truth.
Nicole: Ahem. Do you know what this looks like?
Brandon: Nicky, what are you doing here?
Nicole: Business meeting. How about you and the doctor? Whoo. Looks like Iíve interrupted something heavy.
Lexie: No, not at all. Brandon and I were just catching up on hospital gossip.
Nicole: Yeah. Sure you were. And I'm joining a convent tomorrow.
Brandon: Come on, Nicky, cut to the chase. What do you want?
Nicole: I have news for you, Brandon, about dad.
Greta: I'm aware that a lot of people think that my mom, Princess Gina von Amberg, was evil, but -- but she was locked up for years against her will, so, yeah, people thought that she had mental problems, but -- I don't know. I think that if she had gotten the help that she needed that she wouldn't have done all those hurtful things. She was beautiful, Hope. I mean, she was beautiful, and not -- not just physically beautiful, but she was beautiful in her heart.
Hope: If it would help to talk about it, I'd love to listen. I'm sure your memories of your mom are very special.
Greta: We were really close. She was -- she was my best friend, and I was hers.
Greta: Did I say something wrong?
Hope: I don't remember my mother. I was a baby when she died.
Greta: Mrs. Horton told me.
Hope: But I'm very close to my dad.
Greta: Yeah, but you never knew what it was like to have a mom.
Hope: Not in the way you just described her, no. I'm sorry. We were talking about you. Back to you.
Greta: No. No, I was just saying that I, uh, that I miss my mom, and I'm sure I always will.
Hope: What about your dad, your father?
Greta: Well, my dad. Right before my mother died, she, uh, she told me who my father was.
Marlena: All right, what did you want to tell me and why are you keeping a secret? Have we not had enough secrets for 10 lifetimes?
John: Well, it's just that everything has been going so well at home lately, I didn't want to rock the boat.
Marlena: Will you just tell me what it is, please?
John: I love you.
Marlena: I know. That's never been an issue. What is the secret?
John: I'm going to tell you. I just want you to hold on to that thought for a minute because nothing is ever going to tear us apart. I can believe that completely, and I want you to also.
Marlena: You are scaring me. Just tell me, please. What is it about?
John: It's Hope.
Shawn: Listen, uncurl your fists, Colin, will you? Stefano -- he's no threat to you now. I mean, he has left Salem.
Colin: I'd heard that. Still I thought it prudent to slip into town quietly, no brass bands.
Shawn: Listen, it's possible that DiMera is gone for good. Now, isn't that a grand piece of news, huh?
Colin: The devil never dies, Uncle Shawn. He just goes into hiding, only to attack when we least expect it. You and I both know DiMeraís arm has a long reach. He could find me easily.
Shawn: Listen, you're getting jumpy for no good reason.
Colin: No reason?
Colin: You've been tending bar all these years while I've been out there in the thick of it.
Shawn: And right proud of you I am. I am. But Stefano -- he may not know that you were involved at all.
Colin: Perhaps not, but I can't be too careful.
Shawn: Listen, lad, what I'm trying to communicate is now there is no need with Stefano away, for you to hide out at the Horton cabin. Now, come on. You come home to the pub with me, and you stay with family.
Colin: Not possible.
Shawn: Well, why, for heaven's sake?
Colin: I can't share with you my reasons. You have to trust me.
Jennifer: I do not want to think about my father. Colin, either.
Jennifer: My father's work is what brought him to Africa. What brought you here?
Colin: Little girl. Suzanne. We were childhood friends, inseparable in the way that only very young children know. Morning to night, we ran in and out of each other's houses, laughing, playing. Then one day she died, quite suddenly.
Jennifer: Oh, my goodness. What happened?
Colin: She contracted leukemia. She grew pale and still. Gradually she slipped from this life and into the next.
Jennifer: Colin, I'm sorry. That is so awful.
Colin: I vowed then and there to make sure that children got the medicine they needed so they can play and laugh, live long happy lives.
Jennifer: But there's children everywhere. What made you choose Africa?
Colin: They're suffering so badly here now, Jennifer. I couldn't not come here. You should never allow me to talk about myself. I have a tendency to jabber on.
Jennifer: I don't mind.
Colin: I do. It's preventing me finding more about you. Tell me why you came to Africa,
Jennifer. Jennifer? Jennifer?
Jack: Jennifer. Jennifer, you okay?
Jennifer: Oh! Oh, it's you.
Jack: Uh, yeah, it's me, the guy you live with. Why, were you expecting somebody else? Don't answer that. Look, about that silly fight that I picked with you over Greta, um, I'm sorry. I-I hate it when we fight.
Jennifer: Yeah, I do, too.
Jack: You do?
Jennifer: Yeah, I do, and I realize that I can be really unreasonable sometimes, and, I mean, you were right about Greta. I just made such a huge deal out of nothing, and... Just old habits, I guess.
Jack: Jennifer, that is a bunch of hooey, and you know it. Old habits have nothing to do with this.
Brandon: What about dad?
Nicole: I saw him.
Brandon: Damn it, Nicky.
Nicole: Just relax. I told him to leave town. I don't know if he has yet, but he said he would. It was okay, Brandon. It really was.
Brandon: Yeah, well, he'd better leave if he knows what's good for him.
Nicole: See, this is exactly what I was afraid of. Just stay away from him, Brandon. I will handle this. I already have.
Brandon: Okay. Thanks, Nicky.
Nicole: See when I'm not wanted.
Lexie: What was all that about your father?
Brandon: He got out of prison. Look, forget him, all right? I don't waste my time on bastards. Lexie, you can't tell Abe about the switch.
Lexie: Oh, Brandon, come on. He's my husband. A part of me feels like I owe it to all our years of marriage.
Brandon: Lexie, if you tell Abe the truth, guaranteed you will lose your baby.
Lexie: Will you stop saying that! You don't know that.
Brandon: Could you go to Abe and say, "Abe, by the way, the baby we adopted is really Hope's child," and be sure that he would keep your secret?
Nicole: Girls' night out?
Greta: Hello, Nicole.
Hope: Nicole, hi. How are you?
Nicole: Hello. Hope, how is that hunky husband of yours? Greta, you should get Hope to give you lessons on how to get a man.
Hope: Greta doesn't need help getting a man.
Nicole: No, really, tell us the last time you had a date.
Greta: None of your damn business, Nicole.
Nicole: Ooh, ouch. Hit a nerve. You know, maybe you should switch to females because your relationships with men aren't getting you anywhere.
Hope: Ooh. What a piece of work.
Greta: Yeah, well, men like her, and she likes men, as long as they belong to somebody else.
Hope: Back to what we were talking about. I think it's great that you know who your father is. What are you going to do about it? Have you met him?
Greta: My mom was really disturbed right before she died, so I'm not sure who she told me was the truth.
Hope: Greta, you've got to find out. I'll tell you, there is nothing more important than finding out the truth about your own life.
John: I just hate that I keep doing this to you.
Marlena: I love you. I will stand by you, but you have to be honest with me. Tell me what Hope wants now.
John: She wants to know everything about her life as Princess Gina, including how J.T. was conceived.
Jennifer: I was trying to apologize to you, Jack.
Jack: No. No, no, no. You were dismissing me, like saying, "oh, I'm not really jealous,
Jack. It's just a knee-jerk reaction like the old days." Well, let me refresh your memory,
Jennifer. Back when we were married, you were never jealous because I never gave you cause to be. You were the only woman in my life.
Jennifer: Oh, fine, Jack. Yes, you were the one man on the entire planet who never cheated on his wife.
Jack: I am not, nor have I ever been, your philandering father.
Jennifer: You leave my father out of this.
Jack: With pleasure. I happen to be a great father, an excellent father. I have Abigail at the center of my universe. I live for her. That's why I suggested this whole living arrangement -- for her benefit. That's also why I think we should do our damnedest to be friends, Jennifer, good friends.
Jennifer: Oh, good friends. Uh-huh, so that Abby can get close to both of us so that we would have to get married again. Is that part of your little future plan, Jack -- that we're going to be this little happy family again?
Jack: At least I'm not ruling out the possibility.
Jennifer: Don't you lay all of this on me. I did everything I could to make our marriage work, and you know it.
Jack: Short of actually staying married, yes.
Jennifer: Oh, I am so sick of wasting my time on relationships that don't work! If there is no future, I am out of here.
Marlena: Well, it's not that I am unsympathetic to Hope's situation. Tell me something. Exactly how detailed does she want you to be? What? Does she want to know what she was wearing or how the two of you touched each other or what you might have whispered to her?
John: Yes. That's exactly what she wants to know.
Brandon: I'm just trying to tell you you can't tell Abe the truth. He'd sell you out.
Lexie: Okay. Okay, I know that, all right? I don't trust my own husband. Are you satisfied?
Brandon: I'm just trying to help you, Lexie. I don't want you to lose your son.
Hope: Oh, my gosh.
Greta: What's that all about?
Hope: I can't believe this. Maybe something really is going on between them.
Jack: Okay, let's just pull back, take a deep breath, regroup. Now, you mentioned your father.
Jennifer: No, you mentioned my father.
Jack: Well, that's after you made the obvious reference with the crack about male infidelity.
Jennifer: That's -- fine. Fine, Jack.
Jack: I only bring it up because I know that Bill disappointed you again in Africa.
Jennifer: Yes, he did.
Jack: Still, you did back flips, looking for any way you could to forgive the guy.
Jennifer: Jack, he is my father.
Jack: I see. So you will work on preserving the paternal relationship, but it's okay to just throw the ex-husband out with the garbage without so much as a "thanks for the memories."
Brandon: I'm here for you, Lexie.
Lexie: Thank you.
Nicole: I don't know what Brandon is doing. What, does he think he and Lexie are invisible?
Brandon: You didn't ask for this tragedy in your life. You just wanted to be a mom. And I didn't ask to know your secret, but you needed a friend you could trust, and so you came to me. So let me help. I want to be there for you.
Lexie: I don't know what I would have done without you these past few months, Brandon. God sent me such a wonderful friend in you.
Lexie: If only he would have allowed Abe and me to have a baby of our own.
Brandon: You know you couldn't love any child more than you love Isaac.
Lexie: No. No, of course not, but with a baby that I had given birth to, I wouldn't have to live with this fear all the time, Brandon, the fear that my baby might be taken away from me.
Nicole: Ahem. I thought you should know that Hope Brady is here, and she saw you two holding hands, so it looks like your affair is out of the closet.
Marlena: Well, this is a fairly spectacular turnaround that Hope is doing, isn't it? All we've heard for the last year is how it's so important that Bo never know that you're J.T.'s father because it's so important to Hope that her marriage remain intact. And she kept asking us -- remember? -- How we would, uh, how it would help if we would just let her have that peace of mind. And now -- and now -- she'll risk that peace of mind in order to find out how J.T. was conceived?
John: I know.
Marlena: Ohh. I don't want you to do it. It would be a very big mistake. But I'll tell you what. Maybe, as just an experiment, why don't you tell me everything that you remember about -- about Gina?
John: I don't think so.
Marlena: So, there are things you don't want me to know about that relationship, but you're willing to tell Hope about it?
John: You know, Marlena, I expected you to be upset about this. I didn't expect you to be jealous, though.
Marlena: Why the hell wouldn't I be jealous?
John: Because I love you, that's why. Damn. This is beginning to feel an awful lot like your jealousy towards Isabella.
Marlena: Isabella is dead. Hope is alive.
John: Hope is not a threat to us. I love you and only you. Doesn't mean I haven't loved before. So have you. But what we have here is awesome, and nothing can touch it. I just don't know why you feel that it's going to be the end of the world if I do this one thing for Hope.
Marlena: This one thing for Hope. This one thing, then one more thing, then another and another.
John: No, no, no, no. She promised me.
Marlena: I don't trust her promises. I don't trust what she will do. I think, buried deep inside Hope, we will find Gina's memories. We may also find Gina's feelings, and if she gets in touch with those, I'm sure she will fall in love with you all over again.
John: I remember my feelings for Gina, but I'm not in love with Hope. I love you, Marlena, the same way that Hope loves Bo, and I don't ever see any of that changing. I mean, come on, think about it. Think about all the things they've been through.
Marlena: Of course. Of course you're right. It's like remembering from a great distance. It's like calling up your childhood, isn't it?
John: The way most people would.
Marlena: No wonder you were in no rush to tell me. I reacted like a jealous schoolgirl, didn't I?
John: Well, the thing is, I've fought with this idea for quite some time, but I feel that Hope can handle knowing about her life as Gina, and I say this because maybe if she puts all these pieces of her past together, we all can move on. I want to tell her. The only thing stopping me right now is you.
Lexie: How dare you insult me, accusing me of having an affair with your brother?
Nicole: Most women would take that as a compliment, honey. Can't your friend take a joke?
Lexie: It wasn't funny. Look, Brandon, I need to go home and be with my husband and my child. Thanks for your time.
Brandon: I'll talk to you soon.
Nicole: Don't I get a goodbye? Guess not.
Lexie: Hope, hi.
Hope: Hi. Hey, Lex.
Lexie: Hi. I didn't know you were here. Hi, Greta. Why didn't you come over and say hello?
Hope: Well, we didn't want -- I didn't want to interrupt.
Lexie: Okay, just for the record, there was nothing to interrupt.
Hope: No, of course not. It's just, well, you know, for a moment there, I thought --
Lexie: What, Hope? What did you think, that I was having an illicit affair with Brandon Walker? I mean, how could you -- I thought you were my friend.
Jennifer: Oh, man, I swore that I would never cry over Jack Deveraux again, and here I am. I just don't understand why I'm doing this.
Colin: Tell me why you came to Africa, Jennifer.
Jennifer: You know what? It's getting a little too cold for me, Colin.
Colin: Take this as an extra and go inside. It'll get much colder very quickly.
Jennifer: We're good friends now, right?
Colin: Great friends, I'd say, and whatever your reasons, I'm very glad you're here.
Jennifer: So am I. You have this difficult decision
Hope: Lex, I'm sorry. Of course there's nothing going on between you and Brandon. Please forgive me for being just so stupid.
Lexie: Oh, Hope, I'm sorry. You know, I'm the one being stupid. I'm just a little edgy.
Hope: You want to talk about it?
Lexie: No. No, um, look, I am sorry I interrupted. I-I've got to go. Good night, baby.
Hope: Good night.
Greta: Wow. She's really upset.
Hope: She's been going through an awful lot.
Greta: Yeah, that man tried to take her baby away, right?
Hope: Yeah. His name was Glen Reiber. Thank God he turned out not to be Isaac's biological father, but the whole thing really scared Lexie. I guess when, uh, when you adopt a child, you never completely forget there's a birth mother out there somewhere -- or a birth father, in this case. Glen was so determined to find his child.
Greta: I can understand that.
Hope: Of course. I mean, any father would want his child to know who he is. Greta, um... No matter how ill your mother was when she died, I think she loved you too much to lie to you about something so important. She probably told you who your father was so you wouldn't be all alone in the world. Who is he, anyway? Who's your father, Greta?
John: So it's all up to you. You say no, I don't tell her.
Marlena: Tell her. Tell her everything she needs to know with one exception, if you don't mind.
John: I'm not sure I can just tell her a part of it.
Marlena: The who and the what and the where of it I don't mind her knowing. It's the romantic part. Do you think that, out of deference to our marriage, you could not tell her the vivid details of your lovemaking? I don't mean to sound controlling here. I do think that telling her everything in great detail could trigger memories in Hope that would leave us all with a much bigger problem. Would that be all right?
John: I think you're one amazing woman. And you got a deal.
Marlena: I think you're one amazing lover. I don't want to share.
John: You never have to.
Jennifer: I remember what Colin said to me. It's what he meant that I can't figure out.
Colin: Jack is with you, and your daughter as well. Due to your closeness with your family, our friendship must remain within certain boundaries.
Jennifer: Colin, you don't understand. Jack is never even around. He takes off, and we don't even know when he's going to be back. I'm mostly alone here.
Colin: He's a fool to leave you. I'll never understand that. Never.
Jennifer: It was my mistake for thinking that it was real, going to Ireland, dragging my daughter with me, chasing after some fantasy. That's all it ever was. It was just a fantasy. I am not wasting my time anymore on something that I can't have.
Jennifer: Maybe I should work on my relationship with Jack.
Shawn: Well, now, listen, listen, you don't want to get an old man in trouble with his wife, you know? Caroline -- she would not take kindly to you staying out there at the Horton cabin, you know, when she could have you at the pub, and she'd be spoiling you from sunup to sundown.
Colin: Nothing would please me more, but I can't.
Shawn: You know, that -- that is nonsense. I mean, we've got plenty of room. We've got plenty of room, you know, and -- ha ha -- we got the best shepherd's pie this side of Dublin.
Colin: I didn't say I don't want to, Uncle Shawn. I said I can't.
