Jack: Why would you want to help me get Jennifer back? You think I ruined her life.
Julie: Oh, I know I said that, Jack. But I meant in a good way.
Jack: Said the spider to the fly. Or the black-clad hostess to the unsuspecting contestant.
Julie: Excuse me?
Jack: When you're as sensitive -- or as widely disliked -- as I am, metaphor is key to sanding down the edges of sharp and pointed things -- like your opinion of me. If life were a reality show...
Julie: Which it is not...
Jack: I'd be the weakest link, the bum that Jennifer should have voted off the island years ago. Now you know that I want her back, you've decided to do the job yourself. But there's only one person who can get me out of Jennifer's life, Julie. And it's sure as hell not you.
Hope: Jenn, a man who marries once is seven times more likely to marry again. It's a proven fact. In other words, Jack is at high risk.
Jennifer: And you know what, Hope? It's a huge planet, and you could search every inch of it and not find one woman nuts enough to plight her troth to Jack Deveraux. All right, not more than one, ok?
Hope: Why are you treating this like a joke? Jack might not have any idea, and obviously you don't -- miss oblivious over here -- but you're losing him. And if that happens, you have no one to blame this time but yourself.
Roman: Ha! Ha! You know if I didn't know better, I might mistake you for the old Kate
Roberts. The one who used to sashay around town, dripping in jewelry and designer clothes what did you do, rob a bank?
Kate: I'm sorry. Have we met?
Girl: Don't worry. You'll get your turn.
Sami: Yeah, but when?
Greta: Wow. How unexpected.
Austin: I've been meaning to call.
Greta: Come in.
Greta: So, where've you been?
Austin: You know, with Sami mostly, working on our relationship.
Greta: Right. Well, I know you've always had your doubts about that relationship, but Sami never has. She's always known exactly what she wants. She wants marriage, and she wants you. So, is that why you're here? You came to tell me that Sami is finally going to get what she wants?
[Car horn honking]
Brady: Be right back.
Brady: Dad! Hello. Dad.
Brady: Do you know how many times I just honked? What's going on, man?
John: Oh, nothing. Just got a lot on my mind. Business.
Brady: No, I don't think so. This is personal. Someone messing with you? Stefano?
Brady: Well, you might as well tell me. I'm not leaving until you do.
Lexie: [Giggles] Uh-huh, I know. What else?
Eliana: Nap time.
Lexie: Oh, no.
Eliana: Would you like to put him down, Mrs. Carver?
Lexie: No, no, I want to hold him like this forever. But I know, I know, he has to get used to you. Ok. Here you go.
Eliana: Well, I guess that's what mothers do, isn't it? What's best for their children, no matter how hard it is. Mrs. Carver, are you all right?
Lexie: Yeah. Yeah. I'm fine. I'll see you later, sweetheart, ok bye-bye-Bye-bye.
Rolf: What's wrong?
Lexie: John Black. I need to get him out of my life, and I need to do it today.
Craig: You're good. Oh, Nancy, you are good.
Nancy: I know.
Craig: Gad-blast it! Get this thing out of the room.
Nancy: Someone's hungry.
Craig: Yeah, well, get him out and give him dinner some other night.
Nancy: Oh, sugar.
Craig: Go. Go. You gonna cook me some dinner now?
Craig: I'm hungry, too. All right, get up and get dressed, and I'll take you out.
Nancy: You know what would really make me, um, smile?
Nancy: Would make me tingle, would make me glow.
Nancy: Please don't tell me you're too tired.
Craig: Sweetheart, I've got an early morning, ok?
Craig: I do.
Nancy: You know what? I have a PhD. in sensual massage. How's that? Oh, well how's this?
John: You know what? I think you need to work on your people-reading skills a little bit, because I was thinking about business. Specifically how I'm going to line up my new company for a tax investment credit.
Brady: Mm-hmm. Come on, dad, talk to me.
John: Hey! Chloe.
Chloe: Hi, Mr. Black. Is everything ok?
John: Yeah, everything's great. So, look at that. You got a new ride. I hope you have insurance if you're letting this clown drive it around
Chloe: It's not my car.
John: Oh, Craig's?
Brady: It's mine.
John: You're kidding me. Whoa.
Brady: Guys who get shot by the cops don't really live to spend on something nice and practical, you know?
Brady: And fun. It's a cool car, isn't it?
John: Yeah, it's cool. And when your sister gets her license, she's going to want something just like it, and she's going to be working me for months.
Brady: Come on, dad. You know it doesn't take Belle that long to get anything out of you.
John: It will this time. What's up with the rims here? Are these stealth?
Brady: Listen, dad, Belle's not dumb, if that's what you're worried about. She's responsible. More than me at that age.
Chloe: You must miss her very much.
John: So, what are the two of you up to today?
Chloe: Oh, nothing special, just hanging out.
John: You've been doing a lot of that lately.
Brady: Listen, Chloe, can you excuse us for a second? I would
Chloe: Yeah, of course. Nice seeing you again, Mr. Black.
John: You, too.
Brady: Dad, what have you got against Chloe?
John: Nothing. Nothing. It's just seems to me that, what, a couple of weeks ago she was leading Philip Kiriakis around by the nose, and now she's moved on to you.
Brady: We're friends. That's all.
John: She's a beautiful girl.
Brady: She is.
John: There's a lot of power in that kind of beauty. You never know where it can lead.
Brady: Listen, hey, we're not really doing much today, just going for a drive. Do you want to come?
John: What? A sympathy ride? Is that what your arrogant young eye saw? A pathetic soul sitting on his bench? Is that it? Oh, get out of here. Just go cruising. I'm going to smack you one. Get out of here.
Brady: All right. Hey, you really think she's beautiful?
Brady: You're right. Just for the record, I'm not Philip Kiriakis. If Chloe thinks I'm going to chase her around like he did, she's in for a big surprise. See you.
John: See you, son.
Julie: Jack, you think I despise you for being weak, irresponsible, and juvenile, and I do. Or rather, I did. I've had to revise my opinion.
Jack: "Really?" He said, bracing for an especially scathing insult.
Julie: No, Jack. Grandma told me how you saved Jennifer's life. I can't deny it anymore. You have changed. You're not just an Italian suit pretending to be a man. You actually are one. To quote Jennifer, "you're a hero."
Jack: Oh, please.
Julie: No, it's the truth. So, if you want Jennifer back, I can tell you how to do it.
Jack: What are you talking about?
Julie: Greta -- Princess von what's-her-face --I think you should sleep with her.
Jennifer: I wish that you would stop talking to me like I'm a hopeless case. Like it's Jack or nothing for Jennifer because she can't attract anyone normal.
Hope: Jenn, I didn't mean it that way. Any guy would be lucky to have you.
Jennifer: Look, if I decided to get back together with Jack, there's something that I would have to know first.
Hope: Where he stands with Greta. So ask. Talk to him.
Jennifer: Well, I can't, because, see, if it looks like I'm interested, he's not going to tell me the truth. But you know what? Greta is too honest to lie.
Hope: Jenn. What are you going to do? Go knocking on her door and ask her if she's in love with Jack?
Jennifer: Oh, come on. Give me a break. I can be subtle when I need to be. And if that doesn't work, we'll just get Bo to tap her phone.
Hope: Sounds like a plan. Good luck. I'll see you later. Bye, honey.
Rolf: Please, don't misunderstand -- when a voice is raised against John Black, I cheer from the heart. But he must have done something to get you this upset.
Lexie: Rolf, you heard my conversation with John. I told Hope I would help her find out the truth about her past. John found out, and he's furious. He thinks my father's using me to manipulate Hope. I wish my father was here. He'd know how to help me.
Rolf: Well, please, please, let me help. Protect you the way Stefano always has.
Lexie: I can take care of myself.
Rolf: Yes, yes, but why should you have to? You had nothing to do with switching the babies. Or with Hope's desire to become Gina. It's not your place to deal with the consequences. Leave that to me. I will make your problems disappear. I promise.
Hope: John, we've waited long enough. It's time.
John: So, you think you're ready to face your past as Gina.
Hope: I know I am.
John: You're absolutely wrong, because I remember what it's like to be under Stefano's control, and I know for a fact you would never be able to handle it. Never!
Austin: You're right about me having doubts about our relationship, and, you know, that's why I wanted to take some time to figure things out. Sami and I, you know, we decided to start dating.
Greta: I see. So, how's it going?
Austin: Great. Great. We're like a family.
Greta: Wow! Well, I'm really happy for you. I really am. Um, I appreciate you letting me know.
Austin: So, I mean, how about you? How are you doing?
Greta: Oh, well, I'm doing great. The building drive is going forward. And I've met a new friend. Jack Deveraux.
Austin: Wait, he's living with Jennifer, right?
Greta: Oh, yeah, for Abby's sake, but it's strictly platonic.
Austin: Ok, and you consider -- this is a good thing?
Greta: Well, it's not a bad thing. It could be a very, very good thing.
Austin: Oh, ok, ok. So, oh, you really dig Jack. Ok. All right.
Greta: Ha! Ha! Hello?
Jennifer: Greta, hi, it's me. If you're not too busy, and it's fine if you are, would you mind if I stopped over for a little while?
Greta: Great. I'd love to see you.
Jennifer: I'll be there as soon as I can.
Greta: Ok. [Phone beeps off] That was Jennifer. She's coming over.
Austin: Ok, well, I'll take that as my invitation to leave.
Greta: I would not do that to you. So, do you want a beer?
Austin: Beer? Since when did you start drinking beer? Oh, I'm like slow on the uptake today. So, you got it for him, for Jack. He's already fridge-worthy.
Austin: Yeah, well, you know, my first girlfriend, I had to give her a ring before I could get a cold root beer. You know, love may be free, but refrigeration is expensive. Especially in the summer.
Greta: You're crazy.
Austin: Am I?
Austin: I think I am. So, what else is in there with Jack's name on it. Hey, yo, Jack Deveraux!
Greta: Get out of here!
Austin: Is that corn?
Roman: What happened? How did your lousy luck turn around?
Kate: Oh, let's just say my ship came in. Maybe I should say my yacht.
Roman: Uh-huh, what did you do to Victor this time?
Kate: I know this might come as a shock to you, but some men find me charming -- even attractive.
Roman: I guess those would be the same men who enjoy having their house set on fire.
Kate: Why don't you stop being so judgmental? You know, Victor took some of the very best years of my life. You have no idea the things I had to do for him.
Roman: Are you back at Titan now?
Kate: Mm, just the mere thought of that corporate coffin makes me yawn. Besides, it would cut into my shopping.
Roman: Well, clearly you know how that's done. You do look good.
Kate: You mean this old thing? Oh, I only wear it when I don't care how I look.
Roman: Look, Kate, I don't mean to be presumptuous here, but how is your health these days?
Roman: Come on, Kate. I know how sick you were.
Kate: Would you relax? Those miracle pills lived up to their reputation, and I'm fine. Really.
Roman: Well, I'm glad. Look, I probably shouldn't say this, but, uh, I hope the story you told me about Lucas and Sami is true.
Sami: What story would that be, Kate? And who did you sleep with to get that dress, you whore?
Craig: You do not play fair, young lady.
Nancy: Craig, you made me very happy tonight. Don't stop now.
Craig: Ok! I will do it!
Nancy: Oh, good. You won't be sorry.
Craig: Oh, yes, I will.
Nancy: Oh, no you won't.
Chloe: Why is it that nothing ever tastes as good as chocolate, ever?
Brady: Oh, brain-freeze. Because nothing else is. Are you going to eat that? Thank you.
Chloe: [Laughing] You're crazy.
Chloe: I just had a flash of you as a kid, all excited at the ice cream stand.
Brady: Oh, thank you. I feel real macho now.
Chloe: You know, you can be a lot of fun... When you feel like it.
Brady: What do you say we get out of here, huh?
Chloe: Ok, what do you have in mind?
Brady: You can decide where we go. You can decide what we do. But you get bonus points if it's interesting.
Chloe: Actually, there is something I'd like to do, but promise you won't laugh.
Brady: What? Go ahead, tell me.
Chloe: Well, it's something that most girls my age have already done. But I've just never... I've never had anyone show me before.
Brady: Chloe, are you talking about what most people mean when they talk about... What girls have already done at your age?
Chloe: Yeah. Bowling!
Brady: Bowling. Oh. You're serious? You want to go bowling?
Chloe: Yeah, I mean ,I don't even know why I want to. I don't know anything about the game, but I've always wanted to. I've never even seen the inside of a bowling place.
Brady: Alley. Bowling Alley.
Chloe: Oh, so, can we go?
Brady: Well, it'll be so dumb, it might actually be fun.
Chloe: Is that a yes?
Brady: Sure, why not. Come on, I'll explain the basics on the way, but you see, the gutter is the most important thing.
Brady: Mm-hmm. It's going to be hard, but that's where you want the ball to go.
Hope: Why are you trying to scare me? Are you really that angry with me for going to Lexie and Greta for answers?
John: Damn it, Hope! I told you I'd tell you about your past. You should have trusted me.
Hope: And I did, the first ten times you made the same promise.
John: So, what do you want to know?
John: I don't know everything.
Hope: Why do I get the feeling that you remember more than you want to.
John: I can't do this.
Hope: John, look, I know that you don't want to go there, but you need to for me. Please, just tell me what you remember most about that --
John: I remember... Stefano .I remember Stefano. I remember how close we were .I remember our bond.
Rolf: What you need, Alexandra, what you want, is an end to your guilt. Peace with your husband and with the son you love so much, and I can give that to you. I can fix it so that no one will ever think of taking Isaac away from you... Least of all Hope.
Lexie: By giving Hope what she wants -- Gina's past, Gina's memories.
Rolf: Exactly. And I have found a way of giving those things back without having to turn her into the Princess. Now, all you have to do is say the word, and it will be done.
Austin: Seriously, if you want Jack, you can have him. Of course, I'm willing to do my part.
Greta: Uh, you have a part, do you?
Austin: Yeah. You know what I'm going to do?
Austin: I'm going to write down your endless virtues and give them to Jack.
Greta: Really? You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to take this beer, and I'm going to pour it all over you.
Austin: Oh, no, because that's my beer. That's not Jack's beer. That's my beer.
[Austin and Greta laughing]
Jennifer: My goodness, what could be that funny? Oh, my gosh. What if Jack's here?
Greta: Oh, excuse me. Hi!
Jennifer: Hi, this probably isn't a good time.
Greta: What do you mean?
Jennifer: Well, you're probably entertaining someone.
Greta: More like he's entertaining me. Come on in.
Austin: Hi, Jenn.
Jennifer: How are you?
Austin: I'm doing great.
Austin: So, what do you think is best about Greta?
Jennifer: Excuse me?
Greta: Give it.
Greta: Ok, what? "Good teeth"?
Austin: Yeah, well, I mean, yeah, you do. Good teeth.
Jennifer's voice: They sure act chummy. Maybe Hope was wrong about Jack and Greta.
Austin: Well, I'm going to let you two beautiful ladies hang out. I have a dinner date with Sami.
Jennifer: Sami? Is it serious?
Austin: It is, actually, yeah. Ok...Thank you. Good-bye.
Austin: Oh, and thanks for the brewski.
Greta: Yeah, next time. You don't look very happy. Were you hoping that Austin and I were involved?
Austin: Hey, Jack. Greta and I were just talking about you. So, you two are becoming friends.
Austin: Oh, F.Y.I., uh... Jennifer's in there.
Jack: In there physically?
Austin: If there's another way...
Jack: Well, sure, if you're a Buddhist. Or an existentialist. I mean, where is "there" anyway? And who's to say that some fixed point of space is any more real than what's in your mind? Nice shirt, by the way. New?
Austin: Uh no, not exactly. Uh -- yeah, take care. See you later.
Jack: Right. Right. Love to the folks. All right, now let's see. How could you make this even more interesting?
Sami: What the hell have you been telling him, Kate, and I want exact words.
Kate: You know, you look so scared, Sami. If I didn't know better, I'd think you were hiding something.
Sami: Dad, just tell me.
Roman: Kate said she gave up Will because you found out about something she and Lucas did, something that would put Lucas in jail. But you shut up about it to get custody. And I hate to say this, Sami, but it sounds like it could be the truth.
Brady: Cool, huh? Come on. How are you doing?
Brady: We're going to need a men's 10 1/2 shoe and ladies' seven.
Chloe: Brady, look!
Brady: Neat. Having fun yet? Here you go, ma'am.
Brady: Thank you. You can close your mouth now. Come on.
Chloe: Ooh! I like this pink one!
Brady: You can't go for color. You got to go for fit... And feel.
Brady: See how I do that? Now you try.
Chloe: Ooh! Purple!
Brady: No, no. Ahem. Take your middle finger and ring finger, put them on top of the hole. There you go. Thumb at the bottom. Turn it over. How's that feel?
Brady: Ahem. Great! Get the ball and shoes, and I'll be right over.
Chloe: I just love that sound. Don't you?
Brady: It's ok, I guess. All right, listen, you're going to keep score today.
Chloe: What? I don't know how to keep score. I've never played this, remember?
Brady: I'll teach you how.
Chloe: Ok, whatever. All right .I think I'm almost ready. There. Now point me to that gutter.
Brady: It's going to be kind of difficult to get the ball there right away. I realize this is your first time.
Chloe: Yeah, well, I'm pretty athletic. Not like that guy. How can he be so happy about
Brady :I don't know.
Chloe: Wish me luck.
John: Trust me, Hope. I'm not proud of how I felt, but I trusted DiMera. He was like a father to me.
Hope: John... What are you so afraid to face? What you might have done for Stefano or what you might have felt for me? I mean Gina.
John: No, you didn't. You meant exactly what you said. You're right. I said the same thing earlier, and, Hope, listen to me. We can talk all we want about Gina's being someone from the past or someone locked inside your head, but the fact of the matter is that was you and me on that submarine. That was you and me who made love. That was you and me who created our son.
Hope: That's what you're afraid of, isn't it? That if we find out the real truth about our past that we'll fall in love again?
Jennifer: Why would you think that I want you and Austin to get together?
Greta: I've always been told that you are an honest, straightforward person, Jennifer. Why am I getting the idea that you're playing games here?
Jennifer: You're right, you're right, and I'm sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you. The thing is I don't know how to come out and ask you what I need to know.
Greta: About me and Jack? If I'm interested in him.
Jennifer: Yeah, because, you know, we share a child. Otherwise I really wouldn't care.
[Knock on door]
Jack: Greta, you in there, honey?
Jennifer: Did you tell Jack that I was coming over here?
Greta: No, how could I? I didn't even know he was coming over.
Jack: Hey there, sweet thing. Don't you look fantastic tonight?
Greta: Sweet thing? Honey? What is this about?
Jack: Well, it's about you being sweet, and people should acknowledge that. You're probably wondering why I didn't call first, but something's come up. Something important.
Sami: You make me sick, Kate Roberts. You are nothing but a mean, spiteful--
Kate: Keep talking like that and you can drop Will off tonight.
Roman: All right, wait a minute. What the hell's going on here? What did you and Lucas supposedly do? Sami, if they broke some kind of law and you can prove it, I need to know it.
Sami: Look ,I guess I can't prove it, dad. I'm just warning you not to believe a word she says.
Roman: Look, Sami, I know you're no fan of Kate's, but you know what, at this point in my life I'm just trying to see the good in people.
Sami: Dad, there is no good in her. She's a monster, a horror, a poisonous bitch. If there was any justice, she'd be dead.
Kate: And even when I am I'll be smiling, because I'll be thinking of you here today, red-faced, sputtering, and utterly in my control.
Sami: You are going to pay for this! You and your son are going to rot in hell for the rest of your--let go of me! You're going to get it, Kate!
Chloe: Not again!
Bowler: Nice one.
Chloe: Please, it didn't go anywhere near where it was supposed to go--the gutter.
Bowler: Who told you that?
Brady: [Sighs] Listen, I really didn't mean to--
Chloe: [Laughing] When did you catch on?
Chloe: When you were in the men's room. I can't believe you lied to me .I can't believe you're so good at it.
Brady: Look who's talking.
Chloe: Yeah, I am good, aren't I? At bowling, I mean.
Brady: And modest, too.
Chloe: I've never known anyone like you.
Brady: I know.
Chloe: There is just one thing that I don't get... How do you hit the eight pin spare?
Brady: All right. Come on, I'll show you. Here you go. There you are. All right, what you want to do is you're gonna bring it back normally, like you usually do. You wanna hook it, curve it as it goes down the lane, understand?
Brady: All right, let's try. Ok. Whenever you're ready.
Craig: I can't believe you talked me into this again.
Nancy: You never could resist me. I'm gonna go warm up.
Craig: Fine. Fine. You go right ahead, and I will get my shoes. Size nine, please.
Nancy: Good one!
Both: What are you doing here?
Greta: What's going on, Jack?
Jack: I've got a lead on a job. I'll tell you about it over dinner.
Greta: You want to take me to dinner?
Jack: Of course. Why not?
Jennifer: Because you have to pick up Abby from day camp.
Jack: Jennifer? What are you doing here?
Roman: Kate, listen to me, I know Samiís got a temper. She's got a mouth, but she's young, she's been through a hell of a lot. Kate? Kate?
Kate: Roman, please don't-- don't tell Sami that she upset me because God knows what she would do if she thought I was going soft, right?
Roman: Well, that shouldn't happen. I'm sorry.
Kate: I know. Listen, thanks for listening to me, all right? Listening to my side of the story. I don't know if you believe it or not, but it means a lot to me.
Austin: Now what? What?
Kate: [Laughing] Oh.
Roger: Sorry I'm late, but apparently you've been enjoying yourself.
Kate: Oh, you don't know. So, did you speak to John Black?
Roger: Yes. I gave him a quick rundown on Sarah Burrton's resume, but just enough to get him interested.
Kate: Perfect. Now take him to lunch and make him want me enough to hire me. Then I'll go to him and I'll let him know that Sarah and I are one and the same.
Roger: It's as good as done.
Kate: Oh, John, you don't know how much you're going to do for me. I'm going to have it all. Everything I lost and more.
Hope: John, I wouldn't be doing this if I wasn't 100% sure in my soul that it was the right thing to do.
John: You sure have a lot of faith in yourself, don't you?
Hope: And a lot in you, too. If we don't own our past, it owns us, and in some deep, mysterious way, it holds us back. I know that now. I think you've always known that. Tell me everything.
Lexie: Oh, my little sweetheart, you just don't know, do you? No, how could you know what this means to me? Watching you, listening to you breathe. Oh, I think I'd stop breathing if I lost you, Isaac. If you went away. I can't let that happen, I just can't. Well, maybe Rolf was right, hmm? Maybe it's best if I let him do what he wants. After all, it's what Hope wants herself, so how can it be wrong, hmm? How can it hurt if it helps us stay together?
