Brandon: Are you sure you don't want to go to The Blue Note instead? You know, listen to some jazz.
Nicole: No. I like the food here. Besides, The Blue Note's kind of a pickup joint.
Brandon: Hey, all right. Take it easy, buddy.
Jack: A thousand pardons.
Brandon: Jennifer. Nice to see you. How are you?
Jennifer: I'm great. It's nice to see you, too.
Brandon: Yeah. You know Nicole, don't you?
Jennifer: Oh, yeah. Hey, Nicole.
Nicole: Hi, Jennifer.
Brandon: You're looking especially fine tonight.
Jennifer: Well, thank you. And you, you're looking just as fit as ever.
Jennifer: Yeah, well, I'm sure a lot of hours pumping iron, too.
Brandon: Yeah, right.
Jack: Hate to break up the mutual admiration society, but since no one is going to introduce me, I'll do the honors myself. Jack Deveraux.
Nicole: Nicole Walker. Brandon's my brother.
Jack: Aha! That explains everything. You both swim in the same gene pool.
Chloe: I cannot get that moment out of my head. "Well, this is about what I want, and right now I want that car."
Brady: [Laughs] Did I actually say that?
Chloe: Yep. That's a verbatim quote. And here we are now in this amazingly cool car. Wait, it's not just cool, it's...
Brady: It's happening.
Chloe: Okay, not exactly the word I was looking for.
Brady: No, it's hip and happening.
Chloe: Hmm. Hip and happening. A little retro, but I guess that kind of says it.
Brady: Yeah, so, um, lose the glasses.
Brady: You heard me. Lose the glasses. They just don't work, especially not in this hip and happening car. Get rid of them. Now.
Mimi: Hi. You okay, Philip?
Philip: Yeah, I'm just looking out at the water.
Mimi: I'm sorry you lost the race. I'm also sorry for some of the things that I said before. I know how really awful you must feel, and it was crazy for me to say that what you did to
Chloe was worse than what Jan and I did, because nothing --
Philip: I know, I know, you're sorry. I know. I get it. You don't have to say it anymore.
Mimi: One of the guys said you might be going home.
Philip: Yeah, I was thinking about it.
Mimi: Because of Chloe?
Philip: I thought being here, away from Chloe, would make it easier, but it turns out I'm thinking about her more than I did in Salem.
Belle: Can I help?
Shawn-D: No. That's all right. It's almost done. Check it out.
Belle: Looks great.
Shawn-D: No, I mean come in.
Belle: Okay. Aah!
Shawn-D and Belle: Ha ha ha!
Belle: Oh, my gosh!
Shawn-D: Oh, man. You know, I was so worried about you before when you were knocked out.
Belle: You were?
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our Lives.
Jennifer: Would you mind telling me why as soon as Abby got picked up for her play date, we had to rush out of the house and get over here?
Jack: I have my reasons.
Jennifer: Will I ever get to hear them?
Jack: All right. I'll bag the small talk and we'll cut right to el chase.
Jennifer: How out of character.
Jack: This is the deal. I've already proven to you that we can be civil with each other in front of Abigail. At least that was the gist of the conversation back at the house. Now it's time to move on to phase two.
Jennifer: Okay, I'll bite. What's phase two?
Jack: I've got to prove to you that we can be civil with each other without Abigail being around. I know that that is important if we're ever going to have any hope of reconciliation. Jennifer? You did hear me, didn't you?
Jennifer: Yes. Yes, I heard you. I also remember having a conversation with you where I told you in no uncertain terms that I was moving on with my life and there would never be an attempt at a reconciliation with you, Jack. Come on. We have been there. We have done that so many times.
Shawn: It's been a while, eh? Thanks for coming.
Victor: You said on the phone it was urgent.
Shawn: It is. We need to talk.
Brandon: So, I spoke with mom. She says dad hasn't been around since you spoke to him.
Nicole: I told you he was going to leave town.
Brandon: What exactly did he say to you, Nicole? Give it to me straight.
Nicole: He asked questions mostly about Shawn Brady and his friends, and he wanted to know about the school trip they all went on.
Brandon: Why would he care about that?
Nicole: Does it matter? Let's forget about it.
Brandon: Let's not. What's his interest in the kids about?
Nicole: Apparently he buried something on the lot next door. You know the one where they built the new house?
Brandon: What did he bury?
Nicole: He said a piece of jewelry for mom. The neighbors said when they broke ground for the house that Shawn Brady found it. Now dad wants it back.
Brandon: A gift for mom? I don't think so. It was probably loot from one of his rip-offs, money or something else, and now he's sniffing around, trying to find this thing he stole and then buried. If I know dad, he won't give up until he finds it.
Chloe: You want me to lose the glasses? [Sighs] Fine.
Brady: Much better. And very spontaneous, I might add.
Chloe: Yeah, just like you buying that car. Too bad you're not spontaneous when it comes to people.
Brady: Oh, and you are.
Chloe: No, I'm not. I'm very cautious, obviously. Even so, all my relationships seem to go sour eventually.
Brady: All your relationships?
Chloe: I think that deep down I always knew that Philip and I were doomed as a couple.
Brady: All right. All right, you're getting way too gothic for me. You and Philip just
weren't right for each other, that's all.
Chloe: But I wanted us to be, and I so wanted to be right for him. He's just so handsome and... Charming, popular... Just normal. But every time we went out, whether we were with other people or even by ourselves, I just felt like I was acting a part, really. It's like I would give responses to things he was saying, things that weren't really me. I guess I was just trying to say what I thought was normal.
Brady: So you were lying to him.
Chloe: I guess I was, in a way. But I didn't think of it like that at the time. I just thought I was trying to make it work, try to fit in, you know?
Brady: Instead of being yourself.
Chloe: I was just trying to be normal, don't you see? And Philip gave me that chance. But never again. I'm never going to do that, 'cause it's useless, meaningless. The truth is I'm not normal, and I never will be.
Mimi: I can't even imagine what it's like to miss someone that much, to be so in love with someone that not being with the person you love is so painful. God, and it's all because of me, because of what I did.
Philip: No. No, Mimi, you were right before, when you said what I did to Chloe was worse than what you and Jan did. It was me. I blew it.
Mimi: Still, you have a whole lot to be grateful for.
Paul: Hey, kids, you okay in there? A couple of seasoned campers, I see, huh?
Paul: What happened?
Shawn-D: Well, I guess my mom didn't put the stakes in deep enough.
Paul: Let me give you a hand resetting them.
Shawn-D: No, that's fine. I can get it.
Paul: Oh, yeah? I bet you can. You got yourself on this island you wanted to be on. But don't forget, it took my help, right?
Shawn-D: Yeah. Thanks.
Paul: So maybe I can help you search for what you're looking for.
Shawn-D: The birds. No, we can find those on our own.
Paul: You don't need a map to find rare birds. You also mentioned you were looking for your great-grandmother's ruby?
Belle: Yeah, we are, and it's really important because it was given --
Shawn-D: Look, we really appreciate your help, but like I said, we can handle this all on our own, okay?
Paul: Hey, you don't have to keep secrets from me. You might as well face the fact that you're never going to have any luck searching on your own. And like I told you before, this island can be very dangerous. That's why ever since the tragedy of 1990, they don't let the school trips come back here anymore.
Belle: Well, what happened in 1990?
Paul: Well, it's kind of gruesome, really. A bunch of kids were on the island, here to have a good time, just like you. Five of them took off on a hike, came across a group of drug smugglers. Next time they were seen, their heads were bobbing up and down in the ocean.
Belle: Oh, my gosh.
Paul: Just the heads. The bodies were never found.
Brady: Chloe, is being normal -- whatever that is -- a goal of yours?
Chloe: An unattainable one.
Brady: Yeah, but why would you want to attain it? You strike me as a girl who stays true to herself. I mean, why would Chloe lane ever want to be something she's not? It's not in her nature.
Chloe: I told you. I just wanted to fit in. I don't want to talk about this anymore, not with you.
Brady: Why? 'Cause I'm a guy? All right, listen, just put that aside for a second, and think of me as someone you can just be yourself with, speak honestly to. So tell me... [Sighs] what was going on with you and Philip? Why were you with him so long?
Chloe: I stayed with him because... The first time that he ever kissed me, I felt something that I have never felt before. And every time after that, it was like I realized what was important in life and what made it worth living -- feeling loved... And loving someone.
Jennifer: Jack, why are you doing this?
Jack: I'm just trying to get my life back on track.
Jennifer: You're setting yourself up for disappointment.
Jack: Just because you see it that way. I'm looking at it as making an effort, following my heart, trying to make amends, giving our relationship everything Iíve got.
Brandon: Maybe I should go over there.
Nicole: What? Why?
Brandon: Because she looks very uncomfortable. And he's obviously giving her a hard time about something.
Jack: Look, Jennifer, I understand your reluctance to plunge into anything right now. So what do you say we just avoid the big picture, just focus on the moment? Here we are, out together, having a lovely evening at the warm and hospitable Brady Pub. I mean, what's the matter? We'll just relax and sit down and chat and have a lovely evening. No hassles, no problems.
Woman: Jack, hi.
Jack: Um, I'm sorry.
Woman: Mary Clark. I'm Cassidy's mother from school.
Jack: Oh, forgive me. I am sorry. Cassidy is in Abigail's class. This is Abigail's mother Jennifer. Jennifer, meet Mary.
Mary: How are you, Jennifer?
Jennifer: I'm fine. Thank you.
Mary: So, how's your summer going?
Mary: Your husband is a lot of fun. I'm sure you know that. He's a big hit with all the moms at school.
Jennifer: Oh, uh, he's my ex-husband.
Victor: Thank you, Shawn. What can I do for you?
Shawn: It's about DiMera. You know that he's gone.
Victor: And good riddance. Let's hope that dealing with his various nefarious enterprises around the world will keep him busy and away from Salem.
Shawn: You're forgetting something, you know. I mean, he's still got a daughter here and he's got a grandson. And nothing is more important to that man than family, you know?
Victor: What's your point, Shawn? Why are you worried about DiMera?
Shawn: I'm not. I'm worried about my son. Or should I say your son? I'm worried about Bo.
Belle: Kids got their heads c-- Shawn.
Paul: Heh heh heh heh heh. Heh heh heh heh.
Shawn-D: All right, don't listen to his stories, Belle, because he's making them up, right?
Paul: No, no, no, no, no. No, it's -- it's real. The danger around here is very real, which is why you'll definitely need my help to find what you're looking for. I'm the only one who can get you around this island safely.
Shawn-D: Thanks, but like I said, I can handle it. Jan!
Jan: Hey, Shawn.
Shawn-D: What's, uh... What's going on?
Jan: It's just, um... Nothing. I'm -- I'll see you later.
Paul: What's up with her?
Shawn-D: It's just Jan.
Paul: Well, look, I'll catch up with you later, all right? We'll talk, okay?
Shawn-D: Yeah. Take it easy.
Belle: Shawn, that guy scares me. It's like he's too friendly or something.
Shawn-D: Yeah, maybe he's just, uh, lonely. Look, uh, we got some time before we have to find Ms. Perez for that night hike.
Belle: You are going, aren't you?
Shawn-D: Yeah, it's going to be a lot of fun, but, um... Well, you want to help me set up this tent?
Belle: You're actually going to accept help from a girl?
Shawn-D: That's a good point. Well, uh, okay, on one condition.
Belle: What's that?
Shawn-D: That you go for a swim with me.
Belle: It's a deal.
Shawn-D: All right.
Belle: All right. I'll supervise it this time, because it fell when you did it. And you had it, so...
Shawn-D: Thanks for bringing that up.
Belle: You're welcome. Oh, that's good.
Victor: Get to the point, Shawn. How's Bo in danger?
Shawn: He wants to investigate DiMera again. Bo wants to go back to Ireland and look for skeletons in Stefano's closet. He doesn't know what he's dealing with.
Victor: Bo's not a young boy anymore, Shawn. He's a grown man, capable of making his own decisions. Besides, what can I do? I mean, if he won't listen to you, what makes you think he's going to listen to me?
Shawn: Well, he might not, but at least it's worth a try. Huh? You know, I mean, I will do anything to save my son's life. Please, will you have a talk with the boy? Tell him to back off. Will you at least give it a shot?
Victor: Of course, Shawn. I'll do what I can.
Shawn: Bless you for that. And despite our past differences, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Brandon: Hey, check out who's at the bar.
Nicole: Oh. I wonder what he's doing here. Be right back.
Mary: Well, uh, I'm sorry to interrupt. Maybe we can set up a play date sometime with Abby and Cassidy.
Jack: Sure, that sounds great.
Mary: Well, I really should be going.
Jack: Well, we'll see you later then.
Mary: Nice meeting you, Jennifer.
Jennifer: Yes. Bye.
Jack: See you. Well, you certainly didn't extend yourself towards my friend, did you?
Jennifer: Oh, your friend?
Jack: Yes. I have actually been making some friends here in Salem. Unlike you, some people actually enjoy my company. And yes, I enjoy their company because they don't bend over backwards to put me in a funk and make me feel like everything I say is either meaningless, irritating, or both.
Jennifer: That's wonderful. I'm so glad that you're making friends. I'm so glad that you're charming the panties off of half the women in Salem. I couldn't be more pleased.
Jack: No, no, no, no. The only thing that would please you more is to see me in isolation and misery -- seeing me suffer, paying the price because I have some terrible crimes that I committed against you in the distant past, because of some paralyzing guilt that I feel because I could never figure out whatever the hell you ever wanted, because I could never make you feel that you were loved, respected, idolized -- whatever it is you obviously needed, because -- I'm sorry -- maybe I had needs of my own. Maybe I had problems in my own life that kept me from devoting every waking moment of my life to being romantic, because I couldn't make you feel that every moment we were together that angels were coming down from heaven.
Jennifer: How can you say any of this to me? Haven't you caused me enough pain in one lifetime?
Jack: No, obviously not. Apparently by you, I live to make you suffer. I love to give you pain. That's what I live for. It's the meaning of my life.
Jennifer: Brandon, could you please give me a ride home, please?
Brandon: Yeah. Yeah, of course. No problem.
Chloe: Whenever Philip held me, it was like something out of a movie. We were the perfect couple -- so happy, so in love. And he was cast to be the young man -- the young, handsome man who would do anything to make her happy. And he did make me very happy for a while. He made me feel normal and acceptable. I actually thought I had a shot at being like other girls.
Brady: But you're not like other girls, Chloe. Why would you want to be?
Mimi: This might sound corny and whatever, but like I said before, I can't even imagine what it's like to miss someone, to have my heart broken, so maybe you should be grateful for that at least. I mean, what is it they say? "It's better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all." Right? Now, my lot in life will probably be just consoling all my miserable lovesick friends. I'll be the old maid who not only never had her heart broken, she never even had a date.
Philip: Mimi, come on. Not only will you have a whole lot of dates, you're going to find someone and fall in love -- and someone who's going to fall madly in love with you.
Mimi: Yeah, maybe in my next life.
Philip: Hey, would you stop putting yourself down? You know, if you say that stuff often enough, people are going to believe it. But if you think that you're cool and pretty and smart -- which is true, by the way -- then everyone else will believe it, too. It's your choice.
Mimi: That was one of the topics on "Oprah" last week -- "it's your choice."
Philip: Well, it's true. Feeling cool and important and whatever else makes someone popular, it's all just a state of mind.
Mimi: Really? Well, if it's all just a state of mind, then why can't you change your state of mind about Chloe?
Belle: It is so beautiful here.
Shawn-D: Well, ready to jump in?
Belle: In the dark?
Shawn-D: There's lots of moonlight.
Shawn-D: Oh, man! It is so warm. Come on in.
Shawn-D: It's warm. See?
Belle: [Laughs] Shawn! Shawn!
Shawn-D: Look, I'm a floating head.
Belle: Shawn Brady, do not do this to me. Stop it right this second.
Shawn-D: I can't. Not until I find my body. Where's my body?
Belle: Just go away!
Shawn-D: Okay, bye.
Belle: Shawn, I am not kidding. Don't do this to me. Where are you? Shawn?
Jennifer: Definitely. And I'm sorry that I bothered you. I just thought if I walked out by myself, then Jack would follow me.
Brandon: It was pretty obvious he was giving you a hard time.
Jennifer: You know what? We give each other a hard time. It's nothing new.
Jack: Man, this night. What a flop. I should have pulled the plug on it hours ago.
Jack: Oh, great, Jennifer. Not wasting any time, are we?
Chloe: Thanks a lot. So I'll always be a freak. Just what I needed to hear.
Brady: Chloe, you heard wrong. I said that you were not like other girls, and the sooner you realize that, the sooner you'll be able to forget about Philip.
Chloe: No, that'll never happen. You see, every time we were together, no matter what we were doing, I always said to myself, I've got to -- Iíve got to photograph this memory in my mind. I've got to remember exactly what this feels like. So I did. I memorized the look on his face, his breathing, how intense and warm it is, 'cause I knew. I knew I had to keep those moments in my mind because someday it would all end.
Brady: And you remember those moments now?
Chloe: Yes, I do. I can see the look on his face. I can see his love for me. Now, look, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that Philip couldn't possibly have loved me because he didn't know me.
Brady: Yeah, Chloe, well, maybe someday you'll meet someone who does know you and loves what he knows and loves what he sees.
Belle: Shawn, I am -- I'm not kidding. Where are you? Shawn? Aah! Aah!
Shawn-D: Welcome to paradise.
Belle: You are crazy. I thought something happened to you.
Shawn-D: Oh, like you would have cared.
Belle: Duh. [Music playing]
Shawn-D: Someone must have brought their C.D. player.
Belle: Hey, this was one of the songs we danced to at the Last Blast. The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful stop me and steal my breath...
Shawn-D: What a bust.
Shawn-D: That our first date got cut short.
Shawn-D: You want to finish it?
Belle: Finish it?
Shawn-D: Yeah. Let's dance.
Shawn-D: Well, why not? We already got the music.
Belle: Okay. Dress it up with the trappings of love I'll be captivated I'll hang from your lips instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above and I'll be your cryin' shoulder I'll be love suicide.
Paul: Hey. Hey. What's up?
Jan: Nothing. What do you want?
Paul: Well, you looked kind of down a minute ago. Just doing my job.
Jan: What job?
Paul: Boat captain. Got to make sure everybody's happy. Besides, I hate to see a girl as pretty as you all depressed. You a model or something?
Jan: Me? Are you kidding?
Paul: No. Why not?
Jan: I'm too short. I mean, models are supposed to be, like, 6 feet tall or whatever.
Paul: Who told you that? No, with that face and that figure... Matter of fact, I know some agents that would snap you up in a New York second. They'd put your -- put your face in a magazine before you could turn around.
Jan: Are you serious?
Paul: Hell, yeah. I'll hook you up soon as we get back. Let's talk about it.
Chloe: Oh, how reassuring. Someday someone will come along and love me for who I am. Gosh, if I were in a musical, right now I'd break out into song.
Brady: What, you don't think it's going to happen?
Chloe: Truthfully? No, I don't, and I don't want it to. I don't really care right now. All I want to do is drive around in this hip and happening car.
Brady: Great. So let's drive around and find some hip and happening restaurant because I am starving.
Chloe: All right, let's go. And I'll be your cryin' shoulder...
Belle: Do you think this is anything like water ballet?
Shawn-D: Well, I suppose it's related.
Belle: Why are you looking at me like that?
Shawn-D: It's just that I can, uh, see the moonlight in your eyes. Okay, all right, I know it's corny.
Belle: No, no, it's just a fact, right?
Shawn-D: Yeah. And it's also a fact that I think you're absolutely beautiful.
Belle: Thank you. I mean, I think you're very handsome.
Shawn-D: All right, there's something I got to tell you.
Shawn-D: It's about our first date.
Shawn-D: Um, I think it was a big disappointment.
Paul: Island romance. Ain't it sweet?
Jan: What? Oh, well, what are you looking at?
Paul: Check it out.
Jan: Oh. So what?
Paul: So, how well do you know those two?
Jan: Belle and Shawn? Pretty well. I-I better be getting back. It was nice talking to you.
Jan: Ohh. Yep, there's Little Miss Muffet, getting everything she wants in life. Even Shawn. Well, as least I can use this to bug Mimi. Hey, Meems, Belle got your guy.
Philip: Don't you wish that you were through with all the teenage stuff? You know, already grown up?
Mimi: No, actually, I don't because in case you haven't noticed, I haven't really done the teenage stuff, which I might end up doing in my twenties. Yes, I'll have my first date at age 28 or something, give new meaning to the expression "late bloomer."
Philip: Ha ha ha. You're great, you know that? You say what's on your mind, no mysteries. Just you -- funny terrific you.
Jennifer: I never should have dragged you out of there like that. I mean, you're with your sister. I'm just going to walk home.
Brandon: No, it's okay. She -- she hooked up with her boss. And by the way, I... I can take care of that jerk if you want.
Jennifer: Jerk? No, no, Jack's -- Jack's not a jerk. He is a really good person that I just needed to get away from and who constantly reminds me of something that can never be again, and it just makes me sad, and then I just get moody and upset and angry. Under the heading of more than you wanted to know. I totally understand.
Brandon: No, no, no, no, I-I did want to know. And I want you to know that I think I have a way to help you out of your angry, moody, upset frame of mind.
Jennifer: Really? And what way is that?
Brandon: Taking you out on a date. What do you say? Will you go out with me?
Nicole: All right, let's go.
Victor: What about your brother?
Nicole: I don't know where he is. Excuse me. Have you seen the guy that I came here with?
Woman: Sorry. Unh-unh.
Jack: I just saw him with my ex-wife. I think I need a drink.
Nicole: Oh. Well, that's good. The more Brandon is interested in other women, the quicker he'll get over Sami. And speaking of getting over people, have you heard from Kate lately?
Victor: No, not since I gave her that money to pacify Philip.
Nicole: And speaking of your son, look what his ex-girlfriend is up to.
Jennifer: Wow. Uh, this is a bit of, uh... Did you just ask me out? I mean, I didn't hear you wrong, right?
Brandon: No, you -- you didn't hear me wrong. Blue Note sound good?
Jennifer: Great, yeah.
Brandon: All right, let's go.
Jack: Okay. That's the way it's going to be, then two can play. Hi. It's me. Hey, you up for a little dancing?
Victor: She took over Philip's life. I'm damned if I'll let her do it to Brady, too. Come on, let's go.
Brady: It's my grandfather and Nicole. Hey, granddad.
Nicole: Gee, I'm surprised to see you two here.
Chloe: Hello, Mr. Kiriakis.
Victor: We're going to have to talk about this, Brady, very soon.
Mimi: Thanks for all the compliments. I mean, I guess you mean them. Well, okay, what I'm trying to say is I just hope you're not trying to cheer me up. Although, actually, that's what I should be doing for you, which I was -- trying, I mean -- but I don't think I was too successful. Anyway, what were we talking about?
Philip: You. I was saying that you're okay, Mimi. Really okay.
Jan: Ugh. Don't tell me Philip's actually going to go for Mimi. Gross.
Paul: Oh, yeah. Jan's hot. Mm-hmm. But I can't deal with that now. First things first. I want that treasure, and I need those kids to find it for me. Enough fun and games, boys and girls. Let's get serious.
Belle: You thought our first date was a disappointment?
Shawn-D: No. Okay, that's not what I meant. I-I meant that I just -- I didn't want it to end that early, you know? I just wanted to -- I just -- at the end, I wanted it to be...Different.
Belle: How did you want it to end different, Shawn?
Shawn-D: Well, I, um, I wanted to -- for -- you know, for us... Okay. Maybe I should just show you.
