Kevin: You girls were great on the hike this morning, not like Jason and Hawk. Did you see them poking the bird's nest with a stick? They don't get it. We're supposed to be learning about the ecosystem on this island, not destroying it. I can just see the two of them someday, running a big oil company, polluting the atmosphere. Guys like that couldn't care less about the environment. May I ask what your problem is?

[Shawn grunting]

Shawn-D: Paul, is there a way to get these pitons out of the rock?

Paul: Well, it should just pull out.

Shawn-D: You got to be kidding me.

Belle: Shawn, no!

Philip: Shawn!

Shawn-D: Oh, my God! Aah!

Belle: No! Aah!

Mimi: Oh, my God! Oh, my God!

Philip: Oh, my God.

Belle: Oh, my God!

[Belle crying]

Secretary: I'm afraid she's totally booked this week, except for emergencies. I have next Monday at 4:00. See you then. May I help you?

Jennifer: Yes. My name is Jennifer Horton, and I have an appointment, but you know what? If Marlena's too busy --

Secretary: Oh, she's not too busy for you. The doctor had me reschedule someone else in order to fit you in.

Jennifer: Great.

Secretary: Through there. She's waiting for you.

Jennifer: Thank you.

Jennifer: Hi. How are you, Marlena? I'm sorry. Should I call you "doctor"?

Marlena: "Marlena" is fine. Why don't you sit down?

Jennifer: Ok. Um, where should I?

Marlena: Well, anyplace you think you might feel comfortable.

Jennifer: Well, if I knew where that was -- this is so weird.

Marlena: Weird? Why?

Jennifer: I usually just feel so relaxed when I'm with you, and this just feels so --

Marlena: Jennifer, you called me because you wanted some therapy. Why don't we leave our friendship at the door? Tell me what's going on.

Jennifer: Well, I mean, that's a no-brainer. Jack. What else?

Greta: Just say it, Jack. Just say it -- that I am a freak and that I'm going to end up alone, manless, childless, loveless.

Jack: No, no, no, Greta, no.

Greta: You know what? Don't even worry about hurting my feelings, because I already know the worst.

Jack: No. Greta, you are wrong. You are a sexy, lovely woman, and there is a reason -- a -- a real good reason why I'm not attracted to you. I'm gay.

Jack's voice: Greta's not buying this. She just thinks I'm more wacko than ever.

Greta: And how could I help you, Jack?

Jack: Well, like almost everyone in the world, I could use a friend, but I want a friend who's honest and sincere, and as I told you before, the complications of the male/female dating thing aren't for me.

Greta: Yes. I would that your situation -- I mean, living with your daughter and your ex-wife -- it's complicated enough.

Jack: Exactly, which is why just being friends with a woman would be a whole lot easier. I see green, green, nothing but green, everywhere green, green, with stunning, superb accents of gold and green. I mean, I could do that. I could turn this place into a showplace. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Hey, what do you think of this?

Jack's voice: Man, this woman sees right through me. She knew I was lying from word one.

Greta: Of course you're gay, Jack. The signs were there all along. I just -- I didn't see them.

Jack: What?

Marlena: You want to talk about Jack?

Jennifer: Yeah. Yeah, I guess. I guess I would really like some advice. I mean, not that my family and friends haven't given me tons of advice, but it seems like every time I turn around, someone's telling me what to do, what not to do, and I am so confused, obviously. So that's why I came here to talk to you -- because I want to get clear about what to do about Jack. And, you know, there are so many things wrong on so many levels.

Marlena: Jennifer, just start with one thing, ok?

Jennifer: Marlena, I don't even know where to start.

Marlena: All right. I know that coming here was a very big step for you, but that is not the solution in and of itself.

Jennifer: No. I know. I -- I guess it's -- it's not what I pictured.

Marlena: What did you picture?

Jennifer: Well, I don't know. I mean, I thought when I walked in, it would be fascinating and kind of exciting and --

Marlena: What would be exciting about it?

Jennifer: I don't know. The details are a little fuzzy, but I thought, you know, I would walk in here, and an hour later, I would walk out, and I would just be cured.

Marlena: Cured of what?

Jennifer: Of Jack.

Susan: Penny was just agreeing with you about Hawk and Jason and what jerks they are. She wants to hear more about the island. I know I do. You seem to know almost as much as Mr. Woods.

Penelope: More. Is there really a cavern in the middle of the island, Kevin, where pirates used to hide their treasure?

Kevin: There's a cavern, all right. It's crawling with snakes and spiders and dead bodies.

Susan: Sounds like a place we should definitely stay away from, especially at this time of year.

Kevin: Precisely.

Penelope: Why? What's special about this time of year?

Susan: Well, the tides are high. If you were inside the cavern, you could get trapped and drown.

Kevin: Then you'd be a dead body.

Belle: Aah! Oh, my God! Oh, my God! No, Shawn! Philip, let me go!

Philip: Paul, we'd better get him down. Stay there.

Mimi: Hurry! I can't look at him like that. Why is it always the good ones? Why?

Belle: No.

Philip: My God.

Paul: Get it.

Philip: I got it. Oh, my God!

Shawn-D: Gotcha!

Philip: Aah!

Belle: Shawn!

Mimi: Shawn!

Shawn-D: I was hooked up the whole time. I just had a lot of slack, you know, which is why I fell that far. You guys totally fell for it.

Paul: I got blisters on my hands from the rope, trying to save your butt! Ah, never mind that! What about the clue? Did you get it?

Belle: Forget about your clue! Shawn Douglas Brady, are you out of your mind? We thought you were dead!

Shawn-D: It was just -- just a joke.

Belle: It was not a joke to us! For one horrible minute, we thought -- I thought that you were gone forever.

Shawn-D: Ok. Belle, I'm sorry, ok? I didn't realize you were going to get this freaked out.

Belle: Well, we did! And that was a lousy thing to do to your friends.

Shawn-D: All right. Look, I'm sorry, all right? I'm not going to do it again. Mimi?

Philip: She thought you were dead, bro. We all did. Mimi, wait up.

Paul: All right. Tell him off later, ok, kid? The clue. Did you get it or not?

Paul: There's no writing on here. There's nothing here, nada. Damn, you could have bought the farm for real climbing up there, and you got nothing for it. This sucks!

Shawn-D: All right. Would you take it easy, Paul?

Paul: We're looking at a dead end.

Shawn-D: Maybe not. Give it here.

Jan: What you looking at?

Shawn:-d Nothing.

Jan: Looks pretty big for nothing.

Jason: Yeah. I thought Mr. Woods said no climbing, so why'd you go up there?

Jan: Yeah. We saw you, Shawn. Dangerous stuff. You must have wanted something real

bad to go all the way.

Shawn-D: Actually, I didn't make it to the top. I fell. Ow! Ooh!

Belle: Shawn, are you ok?

Shawn-D: My leg. I can't walk.

Belle: Oh, well, just lean on me. We'll get you some help somehow, ok?

Shawn-D: All right. I'm just trying to throw Jan off. I'm ok.

Belle: Oh, Shawn, I am so glad that you didn't die.

Marlena: So, you want to be cured of Jack, huh?

Jennifer: Basically.

Marlena: What does that mean to you? You're aware, of course, that Jack is not a disease, like chickenpox.

Jennifer: He's exactly like chickenpox. I mean, he's all over me, and he drives me crazy.

Marlena: Well, apparently there was a time when that didn't bother you, because you did marry him.

Jennifer: Yeah, but that was years ago. I mean, I was practically a kid. You have control anymore. I mean, Jack's taken that away from me.

Marlena: How?

Jennifer: How? He -- he's like a bulldozer. I mean, he just rolls over me.

Marlena: Why?

Jennifer: Because he is so sure of everything all the time. I mean, you know, it was his idea for us to live together again, and he said it was for Abby's sake, and it is, but, you know, of course, Jack always has another agenda.

Marlena: Why "of course"?

Jennifer: Because he's Jack, and when he wants something, you know, we're all just supposed to give in to it.

Marlena: And what does Jack want?

Jennifer: He wants me. He -- he wants us to be a family again, for Abby. I'm sorry. I -- I didn't mean to --

Marlena: Why does this make you so sad?

Jennifer: Marlena, I hated it when my mother and father got divorced, and when I married Jack, I promised that I would never put my child through that nightmare, and that's exactly what I did.

Marlena: So now you're feeling guilty, huh?

Jennifer: Yes, I feel guilty, and, you know, Jack -- he just plays on that guilt.

Marlena: Do you think Jack's feelings for you aren't real?

Jennifer: No. No. I think they're real. As real as they can be for Jack, anyway. But,

Marlena, when I came back to Salem, I was very clear that my relationship with Jack was over, that I was not going to go through all of that again.

Marlena: Did something happen to change that?

Jennifer: You know, the night when I was stuck on the bridge and I thought that I'd killed Hope's baby, Jack saved my life that night, Marlena. He was so brave, and he was so strong, and I had no idea that he could be there for me in that way.

Marlena: So that event changed the dynamic of your relationship?

Jennifer: It felt dangerously like it might, and I didn't give in to it.

Marlena: Why not?

Jennifer: Because I have been down that road, and I'm not going to go down that road again.

Marlena: Has it occurred to you that maybe Jack has changed?

Jennifer: Marlena, how would you know with Jack? And I'm not going to live I will not get involved with Jack Deveraux again unless he stops playing all these games.

 

Jack: Wh-what do you mean, there were signs? What signs?

Greta: Jack, calm down. Maybe I'm putting this the wrong way. It's not like I've ever had a gay friend before, at least not one that I knew was gay, but now that you've confided in me, I mean, it makes perfect sense.

Jack: Sense? What makes sense about me being gay?

Greta: Well, you know, the whole shopping thing and decorating thing.

Jack: Excuse me, but that doesn't mean that I'm gay. Not all heterosexual men are color-blind goons who couldn't care less about what color the bathroom tile is. Just because I happen to have an artistic sensibility --

Greta: I know. It's a terrible cliché, which is probably the reason I discounted it before.

Jack: Before? You've thought about this before?

Greta: Not that I specifically remember, but now that you have pointed it out to me, I mean, it all seems to fit. That's all I'm saying.

Jack: Just because I enjoy the company of women, be it shopping or decorating or whatever --

Greta: That is the dead giveaway, Jack.

Jack: It is?

Greta: Yes, yes. Men bond with men. They lust after women, they even fall in love with women, but they don't "enjoy" a woman's company the way you undoubtedly do. I mean, now that you've opened up to me, I understand things, like the way you just pulled your hand away from me a moment ago.

Jack: I was upset.

Greta: Exactly. And you know what? I need to learn to be more sensitive to you. Oh,

Jack, here you were, trying to work up the courage to tell me, and I was making it more difficult for you. That is in the past.

Greta: Well, you'll be relieved to know that I will not be coming onto you anymore, for one thing.

Jack: Good. Good. That's good. I mean, not that you're not gorgeous and an all-around swell Princess.

Greta: Oh, Jack, you do not need to build me up. I feel so much more confident now that I know this whole lack of chemistry thing -- that it's not my fault. It's your fault. Oh, God, no. I don't want you to think it's your fault. I mean, I don't want you to think that I blame you. I mean, I'm not one of these people that just thinks you can snap your fingers and it can all change. I mean, if you are gay, you are gay, and I respect that, completely.

Jack: Uh-huh.

Greta: And I want you to know, Jack, this is not going to change the fact that I want us to be the best of buddies, forever.

Jan: If Woods and Perez were here, they'd say, "no pdas, people."

Belle: It's just -- this is such a relief. Shawn almost died.

Jan: Right, like you two aren't hot for each other? And, Shawn, you do have something in your hand. You climbed up that cliff for a reason.

Belle: Ooh.

Jason: What? Where -- where'd you put it?

Jan: You can't fool me, Shawn. You didn't climb that cliff for fun.

Shawn-D: Belle told me that, um, well, that there was a bird up there.

Belle: A bird.

Jason: A bird?

Belle: Mm-hmm.

Shawn-D: Yeah. You know, the things with wings. They fly. Yeah. Anyway, she saw it on a ledge, thought it was hurt, and I went up there to see why it wasn't moving.

Jan: So where is the little birdie?

Shawn-D: The little birdie flew away.

Belle: Oh. Well, I guess it was ok, then. I was wrong. False alarm.

Shawn-D: Yeah.

Jan: Shut up. You climbed hundreds of feet up that cliff for a dumb bird?

Shawn-D: Yeah. I did it for Belle.

Jan: Would you risk your life for me like that, Jason?

Jason: Hell, no. Ha ha! Ow! It doesn't mean I don't love you, baby.

Philip: Mimi! Mimi, wait up. Come on. Don't cry.

Mimi: I -- it just hurt my heart so much to even think of Shawn being dead. It wasn't fair of him to yank our chains like that.

Philip: Well, well, guys are jerks. That's what you're always saying, right?

Mimi: I guess I just feel dumb because, you know, Shawn made a fool out of me, and then everyone gets to laugh at me for crying. Wow. That's what I did to Chloe, only worse, of course, but still, I guess I have some idea of how bad she must have felt. I am the scum of the earth. I deserve all the crummy things that happen to me.

Philip: No, no, you don't. You made a mistake, that's all. I know what that's like. Now, come on. It's going to be ok. You're not alone, Meems.

Susan: The way it happens is, you're inside the cavern feeling very cool, flapping around. The whole time, of course, water's rushing in, but you don't notice, because you're so interested in the coral formations, until suddenly -- sorry. This is getting too grisly.

Penelope: Suddenly what? Come on. You can't not tell us, Susan.

Susan: Suddenly, the water reaches up over your mouth, then over your head, then -- well, then it's all over. Sorry. Pen, I shouldn't have told you.

Penelope: I've had it with this island. I want to go home.

Susan: Oh. We scared her.

Kevin: We? I didn't tell her stories about drowning.

Susan: No, but you started it with all that lame stuff about pirates and hidden treasure.

Kevin: She brought it up. Besides, what's so lame about it?

Susan: Don't go all Robert Louis Stevenson on me. I know pirates existed. But this is the year 2001. Let's be real. The only hidden treasures today are in historical novels.

Jennifer: I guess when Jack and I started out, I was so in love with him -- or whatever that feeling is when you're so crazy about everything the other person does. And, you know, just walking down the street together, you just feel this incredibly joy. And it's funny because I would feel sorry for other women because I had Jack and they didn't. Can you believe that? You're not going to help me out here, are you?

Marlena: You're doing fine. Just keep going.

Jennifer: Well, the way I remember it, I think being so in love with Jack like that was the problem because whenever he was thoughtless or irresponsible, I would just tell myself that I could deal with it, and that's not good, because it hurt me, and it hurt Abby. And, you know, now Jack has decided that he's going to grow up a little, so what do I do with that? I don't know if I can trust that. I don't know if I can trust him. And I guess -- I guess I'm scared to feel those same feelings for him again.

Marlena: There's an expression: You can never step into the same river in the same place twice. The river's always changing. The same is true with love. As people, we grow, and we change, and love does, too, whether you separate for a while from the person or you stay and ride out the hard times. Do you think you're the same person that fell in love with Jack?

Jennifer: Lord, no.

Marlena: Well, if you were, that would be a problem. Time has passed, for you and for Jack. Is it possible that you have been keeping Jack at arm's length because, well, for lots of reasons, but because of that, you've not seen that maybe he has matured? I mean, you've got the same cast. You've got you and Abby and Jack. The play has changed. It's a love story, but now it's a different kind of love.

Jennifer: Yeah, and -- and maybe that's it. This question is going to seem very shallow and adolescent, but I can ask you anything here, right? Ok. Maybe what I want and maybe what I'm longing for is that magical kind of love I had with Jack in the beginning, but with someone else.

Marlena: Is there someone else?

Jennifer: Th-there was, very briefly, a while ago, and, Marlena, I can't stop thinking about him. So what I'm wondering is, can I try again with Jack -- I mean, should I try again if I am having these fantasies in my head?

Marlena: Are you having the fantasies about the other man?

Greta: I want you to know, Jack, that you can count on my support. I mean, if people have a problem with your orientation, then too bad for them. You love me, you love my gay friend.

Jack: Greta, are you sure you're not in shock?

Greta: Oh, I have to admit, I was in shock at first, but I'm starting to get used to the idea. And, Jack, I want you to know that I am going to be there for you when you come out.

Jack: Come out?

Greta: I know it's not going to be easy.

Jack: You have no idea.

Greta: There is no reason to be afraid. Am I the first person you've told?

Jack: Yes, and I want you to be the last.

Greta: But why?

Jack: Greta, I have this small confession to make. I didn't really mean to say what I said just now. I was just getting strong signals from you that you're interested in me as a potential partner, and I didn't want to --

Greta: You didn't want to mislead me, Jack, so you took a chance, and you told me your secret. I think that is so sweet. I think I'm going to cry.

Jack: I may join you.

Greta: No, no. Don't you be sad. I want you to be proud because I'm proud of you, Jack, proud that you trusted me with the truth, and I am proud to be your friend. And I have to admit, I am a little relieved.

Jack: You're relieved that I'm gay?

Greta: Well, it means that it's not me, you know. It's not the fact that I'm not sexy enough or I'm not experienced enough. Well, it's you, Jack. It's you and who you are.

Jack: Right. Right. It's not you at all. And -- and pretty soon -- well, Mr. Right's taking his own sweet time finding you, but he will. I know he will.

Greta: And, Jack, Mr. Right is going to find you, too.

Jack: Good God.

Greta: Oh, no, no. Don't -- no, no. Don't you be embarrassed. I mean, you are an amazing guy, and any guy would be lucky to have you in his life. Anyway, I'm just glad you finally told someone. And I have to admit, I think I'm going to be much more comfortable now that I don't have to worry whether you're going to hit on me or not. You know, we're going to have so much fun together. We're going to go shopping together and see musical comedies together and make pesto sauce together. Oh, God, I'm stereotyping you, aren't I? I'm just -- I've never really had a gay friend before. I mean, not that I have a problem with gay friends, because I don't. I mean, I think variety -- variety is the spice of life. And you know what? I think this is great having a gay friend!

Jack: Uh, could we -- uh, could we just kind of keep it down? I'd like to keep my private life private.

Greta: Oh, Jack, you're the least private person I know. In fact, you live life large. That's what I love about you.

Jack: Look, Greta, this is between us. Please, don't go blabbing it all around Salem.

Greta: Blabbing? No. I wouldn't do that. But what's going on, Jack? Why don't you want people to know?

Jack: People like me, most people anyway. They think I'm charming in a madcap, wacky sort of way. But if -- if people discover that I'm gay, they'll get all freaked out and be afraid to have me over for dinner.

Greta: Oh, don't be silly, Jack. We've come a long, long way. I mean, take the show Will & Grace. It's a huge hit. Have you ever watched it? Very, very funny. Anyway, my point is, I think that people are much more open than they used to be.

Jack: Well, they're going to have to be open with someone else. I'm not talking anymore, and you're not, either.

Greta: Jack, why do I get the feeling there's something you're not telling me?

Jack: Uh...Ooh! Oprah. Take Oprah. Oprah is always trying to get people to open up their spiritual side, but sometimes they can't. They can't. They can't let go that easily, because it's hard, and they break down, and they're sobbing, and she hugs them, and she says it's ok, and they're going to get there sometime. They'll get there. God, I love that woman. That's my story all over. It's just going to take time for me to discover my inner self, and then, and only then, will I be able to share myself with the world.

Greta: I guess I can understand that, but, Jack, I want you to know that I am going to be there to help you in any way I can.

Jack: Well, there is that small matter of my trip to Las Vegas. I know this may sound weird in light of what I've just confessed to you, but I do need for you to come with me and pretend to be my girlfriend. Are you up for it?

Jennifer: Wait, Marlena. Nothing happened with this other man.

Marlena: I'm not judging you, Jennifer.

Jennifer: No, but I don't want you to get the wrong idea, either. I wanted something to happen, and it didn't, and that sounds terrible, I know, and I am not expecting any kind of free pass because I felt abandoned by Jack.

Marlena: Jennifer, you felt unhappy and lonely. It'd be natural to look for some relief from those feelings, to try to find -- find some love in your life. You deserve to be loved,

Jennifer, and maybe love is what you need to restore the balance in your life. It's time to stop denying yourself that.

Jan: Aw, let's leave the little lovebirds alone. Come on, Jason.

Paul: Cut the smooching. Tell me what the hell you did with the piton.

Shawn-D: Belle has it.

Belle: Yep. He slipped it into my hand while we were --

Shawn-D: Yeah. Well, we make a good team.

Paul: Some team. What good is the damn piton going to do us anyway? We still don't have the clue.

Belle: What are you getting all mad for?

Shawn-D: Yeah. You're kind of intense there, Paul, don't you think? I mean, no offense, but it's not your great-grandmother's ruby we're after, so why don't you back off? Besides, I'm not so sure there isn't a clue here. Belle, can I see it?

Belle: Yeah.

Belle: Shawn, you're -- you're a genius.

Shawn-D: You know, I keep telling you.

Belle: What does it say?

Paul: Yeah. Come on. Read us the clue. Hurry up.

Shawn-D: Not without Philip and Mimi. They're part of this team, too.

Belle: Where are they?

Susan: Remember when Penny was staring at your earlier? You know, when you yelled at her?

Kevin: I couldn't help it. She's always got her eyes on me. What's that about?

Susan: She likes you, Kevin.

Kevin: She likes me?

Susan: As in, she wants to rip your shirt off, jump your bones, basically maul you, yes.

Kevin: Girls are very wild today.

Susan: So, does that mean you don't like her?

Kevin: Penny's not my type. I like a woman to have some confidence in herself.

Susan: What else do you like? Bimbos like Jan, I suppose.

Kevin: Jan has her charms, but they're wasted on me. Too obvious.

Susan: Belle? All the guys want her.

Kevin: Precisely why I'm not interested. I like to feel unique in my desires. I do have desires, you know, Susan. I'm not all brain. I mean, I have a fully functioning libido.

Susan: Right, and it was in high gear on the beach with Mimi.

Marlena: Jennifer, I'm not sure where you are with things. Are you feeling less confused than when you came in? And are you clear about Jack, how you would like to proceed? I'm not trying to make you more anxious, but I think you have an unrealistic view of therapy. It really is not a quick fix.

Jennifer: No. I know, but everything you said about love and how it changes, it grows, and the whole thing about stepping into the river -- that made a lot of sense to me.

Marlena: Well, good. Good. I'm glad. I do want to let you know that -- that, well, patterns in a relationship are a little hard to break.

Jennifer: Well, you sound like you're warning me.

Marlena: I'm just saying that if you want to come and talk again, I'll be here for you.

Jennifer: Well, do you really think I need therapy to make my marriage work?

Marlena: Your marriage?

Jennifer: I can't believe I said that. I'm not married anymore. It's just -- it's a habit. It's a habit of speech. Do you really think I need therapy -- major, full-on therapy?

Greta: I would be happy to go with you to Vegas.

Jack: Great, great. Excellent, excellent. Because I really do need this job.

Greta: Well, I am going to do everything I can to help you. You know, it's going to be fun. We can travel, like we're 2 girlfriends.

Jack: No. No. No, no. You -- you need to act like you're my girlfriend, not like I'm yours. And -- and this can't be "g," not even "pg." I mean, these guys are macho. They're expecting "va-va-voom"!

Greta: Well, "va-va-voom" is what they'll get. I will be all over you, Jack. I'll be nibbling on your ear, the whole entire bit, but that is in public because when we're in private, it's going to be nice just to be pals. You know, I hope I'm going to be able to keep this up, this whole "you're straight" routine. Ha ha ha!

Jack: It shouldn't be that difficult.

Greta: Well, I'm just saying that I just hope I don't let it slip, you know, and tell them that you're gay.

Jack: Shh. Don't even whisper it.

Greta: You're really afraid of going public, aren't you?

Jack: Petrified.

Kevin: Nothing happened with Mimi.

Susan: Right.

Kevin: There was a kiss, pretty major kiss. I mean, it just happened, like spontaneous combustion. I suppose if you had been the one on the beach with me --

Susan: But I wasn't.

Kevin: No, you weren't. You've never come onto me, Susan.

Susan: You've never come onto me, either.

Kevin: I almost forgot. I'm supposed to build the fire. I'd better start collecting kindling.

Susan: Yeah.

Marlena: I can see that you're still feeling confused, so think of me as a source of support and guidance, ok?

Jennifer: Ok. So you are saying that I need therapy.

Marlena: It wouldn't hurt.

Jennifer: Marlena, can you just say, "Jennifer, you need therapy"?

Marlena: No. You must say that to yourself.

Jennifer: I don't know. I mean, I'm not sure. Can I let you know?

Marlena: Of course you can.

Jennifer: Wow. I was feeling so good 5 minutes ago.

Marlena: Jennifer, one visit with me will not solve your problems, but if you commit to the process, you commit to yourself and the future.

Jennifer: You're right. Thank you, Marlena.

Marlena: I'll be here.

Secretary: Excuse me. Miss Horton?

Jennifer: Yes.

Secretary: Are we billing your insurance for this session?

Jennifer: Billing -- uh, no, no. I'll pay. Can you send me something?

Secretary: Sure. I'll get a statement out to you today.

Jennifer: Ok.

Greta: You know, going to Vegas is going to take your mind off the whole sexual orientation thing. We should really do it up. You know, you can wear really tight shirts to show off your muscles and wear gold chains, and I will wear -- I will wear low-cut dresses. I'll even wear a push-up bra.

Jack: Will I see you in a push-up bra?

Greta: Well, now that I know that you're not lusting after me, I think I'm going to be much freer with you than I have been with other men. I might even tell you my wildest fantasies. Ha ha ha! You know, this is so amazing. I, like -- I could walk around the hotel room completely naked, and it wouldn't have the slightest effect on you.

Jack: Oh, I don't know about that.

Greta: You know, being friends with you -- it's so amazing. You never know what's going to happen next.

Jack: Yes. You know, we discover something new every day. I -- I never pictured you before in a push-up bra.

Greta: Jack, if I didn't know you were gay, I would think that you were turned on.

Jack: Funny, isn't it?

[Both laugh]

Greta: I have to admit, Jack, I wasn't sure that I believed you at first. I mean, you have been known to be fast and free with the truth. I'm thinking to myself, "how in the world could Jack be gay if he's trying so hard to work things out with Jennifer?" But then -- then I started to think about it, and, you know, well, things make sense.

Jack: Things? Wait, wait. Wh-what things?

Greta: Well, you know, the whole dynamic between you and Jennifer.

Jack: Well, what is that supposed to mean?

Belle: There you are.

Shawn-D: Yeah. We've been waiting for you guys.

Philip: Mimi's still mad at you for pulling that stunt. Of course, she's mad at me, too, and I don't even know why.

Mimi: I'm not mad at you, Philip. I'm annoyed. What else is new? But you -- I may never forgive you, Shawn Brady. I could be traumatized for life.

Belle: Mimi, everything's ok now.

Paul: All right. Come on. Let's get on with it.

Shawn-D: All right. Yeah. Uh, I found the clue.

Philip: No lie? Cool.

Mimi: Where was it?

Shawn-D: Inside the piton.

Paul: What's it say?

Shawn-D: "This is the last clue before your life, as you know it, is over. The final clue will either change your life for the better or end it for good. The bellybutton of the island --"

Philip and Mimi: Bellybutton?

Shawn-D: Yeah. That's what it says. "The bellybutton of the island is an innie, not an outie. Once you go in, go to the heart. Look for a bird in the rock, and that is where the red ruby shines."

Belle: Hmm.

Mimi: Is that it?

Shawn-D: That's it, except for some latitude and longitude numbers here.

Belle: Well, that's great. Then we can find the last clue, right?

Shawn-D: That's right. Then we're finally going to get the ruby.

Belle: Yes!

Marlena: Kelly, send in my next patient, please. [Sighs] I hope Jennifer's going to be all right.

Jennifer: Oh, my gosh, Jennifer, what are you thinking? Were you thinking, you wouldn't have to pay Marlena? What are you, 15 years old? [Sighs] Gosh, what is wrong with me I am so screwed up.

Jack: What dynamic between me and Jennifer? How does Jennifer figure into this?

Greta: I'm starting to remember some of the things that she said to me.

Jack: Things about me? What things?

Greta: Things that didn't register before, because I didn't know that you were gay, but now that I know you're gay, I mean, it all makes sense. I mean, obviously Jennifer knew you were gay. That's the reason she's so conflicted about you. You know, Jennifer and I have a lot more in common than I even thought. Here were are, both attracted to a man that ends up being gay. Of course, she married you, which must be why she has such complicated feelings about your relationship. You know, now that the 3 of us share your little secret, Jack, I think that we all are going to be very, very close friends.
