Jack: Ah, ah, ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ah, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah, ah. Voila. Breakfast for ze Princess.

Abby: Oatmeal?

Jack: Yes, oatmeal with bananas, apples, and maple syrup.

Abby: But oatmeal's for winter, daddy. I wanted waffles.

Jack: Well, sorry. The restaurant is only serving oatmeal Deveraux today.

Abby: Then can we go to a different restaurant? [Footsteps] Mommy.

Jennifer: Hi, baby. Gosh, it's so late. Why didn't somebody wake me up?

Abby: If you slept in the same bedroom with daddy like you used to, you would have gotten up on time.

Greta: Mmm. Wow, it's such a beautiful day out here. I should give Jack a call and see what he's up to. Maybe he'll want to go job-hunting together. Yeah.

Greta: Aah! Oh, my gosh. I'm so sorry.

Denise: Excuse me, Miss Walker.

Nicole: What? I'm in a rush.

Denise: Mr. Kiriakis doesn't want to be disturbed right now.

Nicole: Tough. Excuse me.

[Door slams]

Victor: Hold on a second. Nicole, I have told you not to barge in here like this.

Nicole: It's urgent. This is war. Look.

John: Mm-hmm.

Marlena: Oh, look at this. Oh, no. Oh, what a view.

John: The best.

Marlena: And you're on top, which makes you king of the world.

John: Well, if I am king of the world,

Marlena: Mmm. So, Basic Black is off the ground.

John: Way off the ground, and I'm telling you, this place is going to be incredible here. I mean, once we put the finishing touches on here, it's just going to be outstanding!

Marlena: That'll keep you pretty busy, won't it?

John: Never too busy for you. Come on. Get over here. Let's go. Come on.

Marlena: Oh. Ooh!

John: Mmm!

Marlena: Do you think you -- do you think you might need a personal assistant?

John: You mean, a hot blonde bombshell?

Marlena: I hope you're talking about me.

John: I am.

Marlena: And I like the offer.

John: No way. You'd consider giving up your day job?

Marlena: Oh, well, uh, no. No, I don't think I would. But I will help you screen your


John: Well, son of a gun. You can start right now because I have one right here. Check it out.

Marlena: Sarah Burton?

John: Mm-hmm. Look at the resume.

Marlena: She's a top executive.

John: Unbelievable, isn't it?

Marlena: It's almost too good to be true.

John: Mmm.

[Cell phone ringing]

Kate: Hello?

Roger: Kate, it's Roger Collins. Listen, I got the green light. You're going to meet the big honcho today.

Kate: Ah, fabulous.

Roger: I'll call you back with the exact time.

Kate: Oh, thank you, Roger.

Kate: Yes. Yes. This is Kate Roberts. I'm calling about my son Lucas. [Elevator beeps]

Austin: Ok. How did he figure it out so quickly?

Sami: Because my son is a genius. Oh. Oh, I forgot. I'm supposed to pick will up from his play date in an hour. I guess I'll just have to ask Larry to cover for me.

Austin: No, no. Don't ... Um, I'll pick him up. He's over at Alex's, right?

Sami: Yeah, that's right. That's very sweet of you, Austin. Thank you. But I wonder if you'll still be in a good mood after you follow through on your plans for this morning, which, by the way, I think you're absolutely crazy to do, but it's your life. If you want to make yourself miserable, go right ahead.

Abby: Mommy, how come you don't sleep with daddy anymore? Is it because he still snores?

Jack: Mommy told you that, did she?

Abby: It's true, isn't it, daddy? You do snore. I've heard you.

[Jack snoring]

Jack: Especially when I make oatmeal.

Abby: That's why you should have made waffles.

Jennifer: You know what, baby? I feel like waffles. I'll make you some.

Jack: Well, thanks. Thanks a lot.

Jennifer: It's not a big deal.

Jack: Of course not. Don't let my oatmeal Deveraux goes to waste.

Jennifer: Oh, what a tragedy.

Abby: Uh-oh. Trouble in paradise.

Jennifer: Baby, where did you hear that?

Abby: My friend Ginny. Her mother says it all the time.

Jennifer: Ok. Well, you know what? Excuse me. You just drink your juice, and I'll start making those waffles right away, ok?

Jack: I hope you know this is all your fault.

Victor: I have to deal with something. I'll call you back. This had better be important, Nicole.

Nicole: Important? Roger Collins is doing headhunting for John Black's new company.

Victor: Are you serious?

Nicole: I'm dead serious. It's all right there.

Victor: That S.O.B. We had an agreement he was never to supply talent to a competitor of


Nicole: Well, maybe it's time you weren't so cavalier about your ex-son-in-law starting a rival company and going head-to-head with you.

Victor: Well, it's obvious that John is playing hardball.

Nicole: You should have seen this coming, Victor. And if you're not careful, John could vault right into the top spot.

Victor: Well, from here on out, I'm going to keep a very close eye on Basic Black.

Austin: I'm not going to fight with you about my mom. I know you don't like her, I know you don't get along with her, but she is will's grandmother, and we're family, and family is very important to me.

Sami: It's important to me, too, Austin. I'm sorry. You're right. Go see your mom. I have to get to work anyway.

Austin: Ok.

Sami: In fact, when we have a new baby, I'm going to quit my job, and you're going to have to be the sole breadwinner. Do you think you can handle it?

Austin: Well, if it means you being a full-time mom, which I know is what you want, I think I can handle it.

Sami: Bye.

Austin: Bye.

Larry: You must be in love, Sami. You've lost track of time.

Sami: Am I late? No, I --

Larry: Half-hour early.

Sami: What a surprise.

Brandon: Hey, Samantha.

Sami: Brandon, hi.

Brandon: Well, I overheard Larry saying that, um, you were early. Want to go to the cafeteria and grab a juice?

Sami: Yeah. That'd be great. Um, I'll be back in a little bit, Larry.

Larry: Sure. See you.

Brandon: So, I've been wondering how you were doing. I haven't heard from you in a while.

Sami: Well, I miss talking to you, too.

Brandon: Is everything ok?

Sami: Everything's ok. In fact, I have great news.

Austin: Hello. Au wow. You look beautiful.

Kate: Really?

Austin: Really.

Kate: Well, you know something? It must be because I am happy. I am so happy. No. I am more than happy. I am ecstatic.

Austin: Why? What -- did you find something out about Lucas?

Kate: I talked to them at the long-term care facility where he's being treated, and they told me that if he does come out of the coma, there's a chance that he's going to be completely normal.

Austin: That's great. That's great.

Kate: It's more than great. It's fabulous. It's the first positive thing I have heard since he went into that place.

Austin: Well, is that all the doctor said? I mean, did he say when he might regain consciousness?

Kate: No. He cannot predict when. He doesn't even know if he will come out of the coma, but he did know that I'm there, but they say it registers on some level,

Kate: I know that he knows. Oh, I'm just so glad -- I'm so glad that I have you and that you're all right. You know, someday, when you have children, you're going to realize how painful it is when one of them is suffering or, in Lucas' case, when their life is on hold, in limbo, and there's nothing you can do.

Austin: Well, actually, that's part of what I wanted to talk to you about.

Kate: What? What do you mean?

Austin: Well, you know, the part you said about having children of my own.

Kate: No, no, no, no, no. Please, don't you tell me that Sami is pregnant.

Brandon: So what's the great news?

Sami: Well, it has to do with Austin. Everything's going really well for us in our relationship. What, you're not going to say anything?

Brandon: Well, I'm waiting for you to elaborate.

Sami: Oh. Well, it's very simple, straightforward. We've been dating, and we do what people do on dates. We're going to movies and going to dinner and playing with Will, taking him to the park, and Austin plays ball with him, and he's teaching him to roller-skate and stuff. Austin's really into Will.

Brandon: Uh-huh.

Sami: He's actually a very unselfish guy. He wants my life to be good. That's his goal, actually. He wants me to be happy and Will.

Brandon: Well, it -- you've painted a pretty idyllic picture here, Samantha.

Sami: That's the way it is. It's an accurate picture.

Brandon: I mean, it sounds like you might even be hearing wedding bells soon.

Sami: Well, actually, I, um -- everything's going so good right now, I'm not pushing to get married.

Brandon: What? I mean, that doesn't sound like the Samantha Brady I know. I thought your mission in life was to become Mrs. Austin Reed.

Sami: It was, at one time. I've changed my mind.

Colin: I'm sorry. I -- I wasn't looking where I was going.

Greta: It's you.

Colin: Oh. Yes. Princess Greta. Yes. We met at --

Greta: At the Java Cafe.

Colin: Right. That's it, and now we've run into each other again, quite literally.

Greta: Must be fate.

Colin: I do hope I didn't hurt you.

Greta: Oh, gosh. No, no. I'm -- I'm perfectly fine. What are you doing here in this building?

Colin: Actually, I was just looking at a vacant flat -- right on this floor, in fact. Obviously, you live here.

Greta: Yeah. Yeah, I do. It's great. You know, the views are amazing, and the neighbors are really nice.

Colin: And you'd be right next door.

Greta: Yeah. That would be terrific. I mean, it would be really nice to have such a charming gentleman like yourself living right down the hall.

Elizabeth: What about his fiancée? Would you enjoy having me as a neighbor, as well?

Jack: Well, she's on her way. The bus driver said she'd be the first stop on the drop-off.

Jennifer: Excuse -- she heard you say that it was my fault, do you know that? The argument -- she heard you.

Jack: I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that.

Jennifer: Then why did you?

Jack: Well, you were the one who said you didn't want to share a bedroom.

Jennifer: You know what, Jack? I -- I'm not even going to dignify that with a response.

Jack: Fine. Just fine. I'll just go off to my bedroom and make a few phone calls.

Jennifer: Jack. There is one other issue that I think we should talk about.

Jack: Which is?

Jennifer: Greta.

Jack: Ah, yes. Yes, yes, Greta. Well, I must say I was surprised to see you at her apartment yesterday. I didn't expect you to become friends, not quite so quickly, anyway.

Jennifer: Well, and I have to admit there's definitely a connection between me and Greta.

And I think she is very sweet and very intelligent, but very innocent when it comes to men like you.

Jack: Ah, I see. So you were going there to warn her about me, were you?

Jennifer: No. I mean, not really.

Jack: Mmm. Mm-hmm. Come on, Jennifer. What did you tell her? Did you say that I was, perhaps, a little unreliable, perhaps maybe even a little loco in the cabeza?

Jennifer: This isn't about you, for once.

Jack: If it relates to Greta, it most certainly is about me. She happens to be a very close friend.

Jennifer: Oh, really? Is that -- is that all you think it is, Jack? You think it's friendship?

Jack: You know, these games don't become you, Jennifer. You're usually so much more direct, especially when criticizing me.

Jennifer: You know what? I don't even know why I stand here and try to have a civil conversation with you. It's not even possible. Good-bye.

Jack: Testy, testy. Trouble in paradise.

Jennifer: Do you just enjoy driving me completely up the wall, Jack?

Jack: Do you enjoy walking away in a huff when the conversation doesn't go your way?

Jennifer: You know what? The only reason that I will stand here and continue to have this conversation is for Greta's sake. I think that she is falling in love with you.

John: So, what do you think? Should I or should I not hire her -- Sarah Burton?

Marlena: I think you should get a picture of her first.

John: I'd guess she's a workaholic with a three-piece suit and glasses, you know.

Marlena: Well, maybe.

John: Hey. Are you feeling a little insecure? Hmm?

Marlena: No. I'm not insecure about myself. But I am a little uneasy about something I'd

like to discuss with you.

Nicole: Why don't you let me handle this Roger guy? That way you don't have to get your hands dirty.

Victor: We'll discuss it later.

Nicole: Ok. By the way, Victor, how much more of your hard-earned money are you giving Kate?

Victor: Well, I must admit, she hasn't pressed her luck and made any more demands.

Nicole: She's keeping a low profile while Philip's out of town.

Victor: I suspect you're right. Maybe she'll even get a job and stop coming to me for handouts.

Nicole: Please. Are you kidding? Why would Kate choose to be a working stiff when she can get a free ride from Victor Kiriakis?

Austin: No, Sami is not pregnant, yet. But one day, I hope, we will get married, and I do want to have kids with her.

Kate: Oh, Austin --

Austin: No. Don't go there, ok? Don't tell me all the reasons why it can't work, because I’ve heard it all before.

Kate: Yes, but none of them register with you, do they?

Austin: Ok. Let this register with you. Sami is the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with. She's not the old Sami, just like I'm not the old Austin, just like you're not the old Kate. We all change. I mean, don't we? We all get older, and we get wiser, and, with any luck, we get better, and I'm telling you that Sami has gotten better. She's got her priorities straight, and her family means everything to her, and she's totally devoted to being there for the people that she loves most, ok, and giving a good home to Will.

Kate: Ok. Now, I'm gonna tell you exactly what Sami has done. She's read some sleazy magazine articles -- 10 ways to trap your man -- and she's using them all on you, and you're falling for every single one of them.

Sami: I'm in no rush to get married. Why should I be?

Brandon: Well, you were once. What's changed?

Sami: I'm enjoying my freedom, and dating is really fun, so if it's not broke, why fix it, right?

Brandon: Oh, absolutely. So what's your secret?

Sami: What do you mean?

Brandon: Well, you keep saying how wonderful everything is between you and Austin lately. I just wonder why. What's different? How are you making it work?

Sami: Well, it's sort of hard to put into words. I mean, relationships are complicated.

Brandon: Gee, thank you for the scoop.

Sami: Well, all right. I guess the key is that I've learned from Carrie's mistakes.

Brandon: Your sister -- the one who used to be married to Austin and then ran off with the Chief of Staff.

Sami: Yeah. Right. Mike Horton. Well, the whole time, she was playing this game with Austin, like she was all sweet and innocent, and meanwhile, she's having an affair -- with the Chief of Staff.

Brandon: And poor Austin had no idea.

Sami: He was totally blindsided by it, poor guy.

Brandon: Well, did you ever discuss it with her, find out what made her turn to another man?

Sami: No, I never did. I just thought she was a damn fool for losing a great guy like Austin.

Brandon: But she had no regrets. I mean, has she called him since the big breakup, begged him to take her back?

Sami: Well, no, of course not. She's with Mike now in Israel, and I hope they stay there. What?

Brandon: Well, you -- you tell it like it is Samantha, I'll give you that.

Sami: Yeah, I guess. I've been finding that I can't always tell it like it is around Austin, though.

Brandon: Why does that not surprise me?

Sami: Well, I just tell him what he wants to hear, and he's happy.

Brandon: Oh, and you think that's the way to go, huh?

Sami: Well, men need to feel like they're in control, right?

Brandon: Not all men. I mean, some actually prefer a woman to be who she really is.

Sami: Well, when you love someone, you do whatever it takes to hold onto them.

Brandon: Now, see, I disagree. I think when you love someone, you not only respect them, but you respect yourself. Otherwise, there is no relationship. You'd have nothing but secrets and lies, empty promises. Is that what you want out of life, Samantha? Is that who you really are?

Colin: Princess, you remember my fiancée Elizabeth.

Greta: Right. Hello again.

Elizabeth: Yes. We met at that outdoor coffeehouse.

Greta: Yes. The Java Cafe. Great cappuccino.

Elizabeth: I prefer tea. Colin, that flat was not nearly large enough and not at all to my liking.

Colin: Surprise, surprise.

Elizabeth: I prefer to discuss this in private, if you don't mind.

Colin: Of course.

Greta: Uh, right.

Colin: Pleasure to see you again, Princess.

Greta: Oh, please, just call me Greta.

Colin: Right. Greta.

Greta: Well, I shouldn't keep you any longer, so, uh, bye-bye.

Elizabeth: God, I cannot wait to get out of here.

Colin: Of course you can't, because you're too lah-di-bloody-dah for a place like Salem! What in the hell has happened to you, Elizabeth?

Elizabeth: Would you kindly keep your voice down?

Colin: Why? It's only the lowly people of Salem that can hear me!

Elizabeth: What's this about, Colin?

Colin: It's about you, Elizabeth. The woman I fell in love with was kind and generous, open-minded, curious, and now you're just... Surely it's not just Salem that's responsible for this change in you, this hostility, this unwillingness to extend yourself. Lord knows we've met so many lovely people here, and how have you treated them? You've been dismissive and condescending -- downright rude at times. It just -- it isn't you.

Elizabeth: I don't feel at home here.

Colin: Ah, for pity's sake, woman, I'm not asking you to feel at home, only to be accepting and tolerant, to make an effort. Feeling at home will come later.

Elizabeth: If it ever does. Oh, Colin, I miss having my things around me. Living out of a suitcase is terribly difficult for me. You know that.

Colin: Actually, I didn't. I thought you liked to travel.

Elizabeth: Traveling is one thing, but the prospect of actually moving somewhere -- darling, can't you see how upset it would make me? All this talk about living here, settling down -- that's why I haven't been myself. I miss my friends already, and, heaven forbid, if we actually stayed --

Colin: So if we did stay, there's no possible way that you could make friends with anyone from Salem. Is that your point?

Elizabeth: Actually, it would be unlikely.

Colin: Because they're all cretins!

Elizabeth: Of course not. I realize that there are some perfectly fine people here -- intelligent, educated, accomplished -- but I don't feel I have anything in common with them.

Colin: You seemed to enjoy spending time with my Aunt Caroline yesterday, or were you just humoring me?

Elizabeth: No. Of course I wasn't. She's a charming woman, but as I said, I'm not at home here. It's a whole different culture.

Colin: A whole different culture. Let's see. If -- if I were to analyze that, I'd say that, in spite of their refinement, their intelligence, and whatever else you say you give them credit for, the people of Salem lack that certain something that sets you apart! Is it class, perhaps? Oh, let's just be blunt, shall we? Let's put it in the simplest possible terms. They're all beneath you. Ah, yes. Now I understand why you're so unhappy. No one here is good enough for you.

Jennifer: Look. Jack, all I'm saying is that you -- you should be careful with Greta's feelings. I mean, she's been hurt, and she's very vulnerable, and you just can't lead her on like that.

Jack: I know, I know, I know. Greta has been hurt before, and I also know that she's not interested in a serious relationship right now, but according to you, the better I get to know her, the less likely she is to even want to be around me and be my friend, let alone take the relationship further, God forbid.

Jennifer: All right, all right. You can be glib all you want. Ok? But I am warning you, Greta is a lovely person, and if you really care about her -- I mean, as a friend -- then don't lead her on for your own selfish purposes, Jack.

Kate: Sami Brady is playing you for a fool. Why can't you see that?

Austin: Now you're calling me a fool.

Kate: No, no. That is not what I'm saying. What I'm saying is that you're dealing with someone who is very clever and ultra devious. Austin, you're a wonderful person. You have a heart of gold. You are kind, you are caring, you are honest, you are trusting, but you are also naive, especially when it comes to women. Honey, look what happened with

Carrie. You were in love with her. Look how she hurt you.

Austin: Oh, that's ancient history. Sami’s nothing like Carrie. Look, you got to get off this negative trip towards Sami, or at least be civil to her, because we are all family. Her son is your grandchild.

Kate: That is a whole separate issue. Listen, I don't have time to argue with you. The truth is, the time is going to come when you're going to have to make a very painful decision. You're going to have to choose between Sami and your mother.

Brandon: Why would you spend your life married to someone you can't be up-front and honest with? Answer me.

Sami: You have a lot to learn about relationships, Brandon.

Brandon: No, see, Austin has a lot to learn about you, Samantha. And you -- my God, you think you're in touch with your feelings, that you know what you want? If you really loved Austin, you'd marry him in a heartbeat, but you're dragging your feet because the more you date the guy, the more you realize that you have absolutely zero in common with him.

Sami: You do not know what you are talking about, Brandon. I love you as a friend -- you helped me get my son back -- but you have certain misconceptions about who Samantha Brady really is.

Brandon: Do I?

Sami: I know what I want, Brandon -- what I need.

Brandon: What you need is someone who loves the real you, Samantha, and that is not Austin.

Austin: I can't believe that you're asking me to make a choice here. That is so unfair.

Kate: Unfair? You want to know what's unfair? How about Sami drugging you with you, huh? And then telling you that you're the father of her child even after she knew it wasn't true? All of the things she did to keep you and Carrie apart before and even after you were married? What about when she faked being paralyzed after you accidentally hit her with your car just so she could live with you? Talk about being unfair.

Austin: That's -- that's all history. It's in the past.

Kate: That may be true, but what is not history, what is reality is that Sami is a lying, manipulative, backstabbing little bitch who wants nothing more in life than to separate me from my son.

Austin: Mom --

Kate: No, Austin. Austin, don't you see? She wants to destroy me, and when you fall for her tricks, you help her.

Austin: There's nothing that Sami could do that'll make me stop loving you, but she is the woman that I'm gonna spend the rest of my life with, and if that means that you're not gonna be around, well, then so be it, it's your choice, it's not mine.

Marlena: Honey, I'm a little torn about the way you should handle Hope. Part of me thinks you should tell her everything there is to know about when she was Gina, and the other part of me thinks that saying one word could be a big mistake.

John: Yeah. Well, you know, Marlena, we can't -- we can't live in fear. Every once in a while, life is going to throw us a curve ball. All we can -- all we can do is stay tight and love each other, and we'll be able handle everything.

[Cell phone ringing]

Marlena: Go ahead. It's ok.

John: Excuse me. Big business. Hello. John Black.

Roger: Mr. Black, it's Roger Collins. Listen, I just thought I'd let you know, Sarah Burton is available this morning.

John: Oh, fantastic. Let's set the interview up. I'm looking forward to meeting her.

Jack: I have no intention of making a move on Greta. We're strictly friends, and that's it.

Jennifer: In your mind, maybe.

Jack: Look, Greta has guys hitting on her all the time. I'm sure that in no time at all, she's going to find someone who's right for her.

Jennifer: Oh, you are rationalizing now. You're hoping that someone comes along, and then that takes you off the hook.

Jack: Off the hook? Now, what is that supposed to mean?

Jennifer: You know what that means, Jack. You are playing her. You're using her.

Jack: Now, why would I do that?

Jennifer: Duh. Because you're trying to make me jealous? Because you're trying to get back at me?

Jack: That is ridiculous and insulting, not to mention absurd.

Jennifer: Well, you know what? "Absurd" is your middle name, and I'm warning you again -- do not use Greta like this. Don't make her the next victim of your selfishness and complete insanity.

Elizabeth: You're absolutely right. I've been insufferable. I don't know how you put up with me. Honestly, I don't.

Colin: I hesitate to say that makes two of us, but --

Elizabeth: It's this place. It seems to bring out the worst in me.

Colin: You're going to have to do better than that, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: I don't want to live here, and I resent that you get to decide.

Colin: So how about you leave and I stay? How does that work for you?

Elizabeth: I'm sorry, Colin. I've been a bad girl, and truly, I am sorry. I promise I'll make it up to you later. What wouldst thou bid me do, my liege?

Colin: Give it a rest, would you?

Elizabeth: Let's not lose our sense of humor now.

Greta: Hmm. That woman reminds me of someone. Oh, yeah. Nicole Walker -- same lovely personality. Maybe I should introduce the two of them and watch the sparks fly.



Jennifer: This is no way to live. We fight all the time. We sleep in separate bedrooms. That's it. That's it. I can't take this anymore. Oh, Colin, why can't I stop thinking about you?

Victor: Don't ever underestimate me, Nicole. Believe me, I know exactly how to deal with Kate.

Nicole: Mind telling me what you have up your sleeve?

[Telephone ringing]

Jack: Hello?

Greta: Hi, Jack. What are you doing today?

Jack: Greta, um, uh, well, until Oliver Wentworth calls, I guess I'll just continue my job hunt.

Greta: Well, what do you say the two of us get together and have some lunch?

Jack: Well, um --

Greta: Oh, come on, Jack. Come on. We can job-hunt together. Come on. I miss you. I need to laugh.

Jack: Well, actually, um, there is something that we should talk about, Greta. How about you meet me at dot.Com in about 15 minutes?

Greta: Ok. I'll see you there.

Jack: Yeah. [Hangs up telephone] [sighs] Jennifer could be right. Greta may be starting to fall for me. Damn! Damn! Damn! How do I let her down easy but still keep things going?

Greta: He is so incredibly hot. What's he doing with her? Now I don't blame Jennifer wanting to know his name. Oh, shoot. [Sighs] I forgot to ask him again. Not like it matters. He's obviously otherwise engaged. Ok.

Jennifer: Why can't I get this guy out of my mind? Come on, Jennifer. Get over it. Life goes on, really. I mean, that could not have been Colin outside of Greta's building. Oh, I mean, what would he be doing in Salem?

Nicole: So what's the game plan, boss?

Victor: I think I'll play it close to the vest for now, Nicole.

Nicole: Even with me?

Victor: Even with you.

Nicole: Hmm. Such a man of mystery. I guess that's what makes life with you so interesting.

Victor: And it's about to become a lot more interesting.

John: All right. Thank you, Roger. I'll look forward to seeing Sarah soon. Yeah. Hmm.

[Hangs up telephone]

Marlena: So.

John: So.

Marlena: The interview. I could stay and give you my input if you like.

John: No, no, no. That's ok. I'll tell you what, if Miss Burton passes muster, you can check her out later. I'm sure you have a million and one things to do --

Marlena: Are you trying to get rid of me? Is that it?

John: Hell no. In fact, I was just going to ask you, what do you want to do for dinner tonight?

Marlena: Oh, I could clear my schedule for you.

John: Yeah? How about Tuscany?

Marlena: I'd like that.

John: So would I. Come on.

Marlena: Yeah. I'm leaving, I'm leaving. Oops!

John: Love you.

Marlena: Love you.

John: Ahh!

John: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. This could be the start of something big.

Kate: Why don't you find a woman you can really love and trust? Because Sami is just going to break your heart. [Cell phone ringing] I'm sorry, sweetie, I have to take this. Yes?

Roger: Kate? Can you be there in half an hour?

Kate: Oh, you bet I can, and don't you worry. My plan's going to work. [Hangs up telephone] Perfect. Oh, yes, Victor. I will get you. I will.

Austin: You're wrong, mom. You don't know Sami the way I do.

Brandon: I've said it before, Samantha, and I'll say it again. Austin is not the right guy for you, and you know it.

Sami: I want to end this conversation now, Brandon. I don't want anything to affect our friendship. I care too much about you.

Brandon: Yeah. Well, if we're such good friends, do me a favor. Don't play games with me.

Sami: Brandon is wrong. Austin and I belong together.

Brandon: You are not gonna marry that self-righteous jerk. No way am I gonna let that happen.
