Jack: [Groaning]

Greta: I feel so bad.

Jack: You've got nothing on me.

Greta: I mean, I wish there was something I could do to help you. Here, come on. Take this. Something tells me that's not going to cure what ails you.

Jack: Oh. You say it. I'm lovesick.

Greta: Oh, Jack, you can't give yourself an ulcer every time some handsome man happens to put his hands on your ex-wife.

Jack: Oh, who says he's handsome? [Groans] Wait, wait, what do you mean? Brandon had his hands on her last night? Wh-what did you see? Where were those hands?

Greta: Oh, Jack, what are we going to do with you?

Hope: Oh, there you are, Jen.

Jennifer: Oh, hi. Thank you for meeting me.

Hope: Ah, no problem. You hungry?

Jennifer: What do you think?

Hope: Hey, three guys in one night, Jen? I don't think that's anything to lose your appetite over.

Jennifer: Oh, I disagree. I'm going out on a date with Brandon, I run into my ex-husband with his date who's spying on us, we leave, I run into my ex-infatuation who was never really my guy -- but incredibly attractive, don't you think?

Hope: Incredibly so, yeah.

Jennifer: But, hope, he didn't see me, right?

Hope: I don't think so. But it's bound to happen eventually. You know that.

Jennifer: No, I know. I know, but, listen, before it does, I mean, you know more about Colin after one chat than I ever learned after months and months in Africa, so you have got to fill me in.

Elizabeth: Teatime, if you're not too busy, that is.

Colin: How did you know? I was having such a craving for...

Elizabeth: Me, I hope.

Craig: Well... Apparently, the wedding's still on. Ready to pay up?

Jan: I can't help it if Shawn wants to be my friend. You need to get a life, Lockhart. You can't tell me who I can be friends with.

Mimi: Want to bet? You already ruined my senior year, so you better keep your slutty hands off Shawn.

Shawn-D: Mimi!

Belle: Mimi, stop it.

Jan: Just leave me alone, Lockhart.

Shawn-D: Look out!

[Tires screech]

Shawn-D: Jan! Jan, no!

Greta: Oh, Jack, Jack, Jack.

Jack: [Gulping]

Greta: Blah.

Jack: Ooh, ooh. Ugh, ugh. Ugh. I haven't felt this bad since morning sickness.

Greta: Morning sickness?

Jack: Oh. Jennifer didn't have it, but me -- I sure did.

Greta: Oh.

Jack: Would you think Iíd be generous enough to have morning sickness for someone else?

Greta: Uh, no.

Jack: Neither did we. But -- it sounds ridiculous now, but it -- bl-bl-bl-bl -- passed. I had -- I had health problems, and I -- well, for a little while there, I thought that maybe I was -- well... Dying.

Greta: Oh, Jack.

Jack: And it made me 1,000 times more grateful when our little girl was born, and at the time, I never thought I'd leave her, and I-I -- I promised myself I'd never -- I'll never -- oh.

Greta: You know, Jack, I, uh... I never knew my father, so that makes me really conscious of how lucky Abby is to have a father that is so concerned about keeping her family whole, but --

Jack: Please, please, please, please, please don't -- don't say but."

Greta: I'm sorry, Jack. I just don't understand why you would give up a chance at fulfilling your life just so -- so Abby can have a nuclear family, well, that isn't even real.

Jack: I beg your pardon?

Greta: Jack, she has you. She's always going to have you.

Jack: You act like I don't love Jennifer.

Greta: No, Jack, I think -- I think Jennifer is amazing. I do. And I know you have these feelings of... Extreme fondness towards her.

Jack: I am not going to ruin her life, Greta.

Greta: I didn't say that.

Jack: But you're thinking that. Don't give me that look. Do-- I can't -- oh, I can't -- I can't handle this. I don't have the strength for this. I-I can't even -- I-I don't have the strength to deal with this anymore.

Greta: Okay, good.

Jack: What do you mean, good?

Greta: Yeah, good. I assume that means you're going to give up on, you know, denying your sexual orientation and stop trying to remarry Jennifer.

Jack: No, no, that's not what I mean. That's not -- I mean -- I mean -- we have to stop doing this.

Jennifer: Okay, so Colin knew that I was from Salem, all right? Why didn't he tell me that he was Shawn Brady's nephew?

Hope: I don't know.

Jennifer: What is he doing here?

Hope: He's working at University Hospital. Look, I really don't know that much, okay? Because Bo and Colin, well, there's some bad blood. Why? I don't know, because they hardly even know each other.

Jennifer: Yeah, well, Colin has a tendency to bring out strong feelings in people.

Hope: Yeah, I see that.

Jennifer: Does he know that you're my cousin?

Hope: No, he -- although he did mention your name to me.

Jennifer: Why do you say it like that?

Hope: He said he was looking forward to running into you.

Jennifer: But?

Hope: But, um... Well, it wasn't like he was going to seek you out or anything. I don't know. He just sounded so casual and cavalier about you and your friendship.

Jennifer: Friendship? Is that what he called it?

Hope: Acquaintances is what he called it.

Jennifer: Oh, my gosh. We're not even friends now in his mind? When he told me to get out of Ireland, I just -- I can't believe this. I don't ever want to run into him -- not ever.

Elizabeth: I thought you might be feeling homesick for your Liz.

Colin: Sweets from my sweet. Are you hungry?

Elizabeth: I am starved.

Colin: Maybe we should find some privacy in the staff lounge.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Elizabeth: Oh, Dr. Wesley. Hello.

Craig: Hello.

Marlena: Hello.

Craig: Finished with your rounds, Dr. Murphy?

Colin: Um, yes, yes. Would you like to join us for some tea?

Craig: No, I-I'm sure your fiancť's intention was tea for two. Enjoy yourself.

Elizabeth: We will.

Marlena: Oh, I feel terrible about this.

Craig: Why? It's not that much money. Pay up.

Marlena: No, I mean what got into us. Betting on the future of people that we know?

Craig: Are you reneging on me? You know exactly what got into us. He's a nice guy, she's rude as hell, and was especially less than civil to you. I can certainly understand why you would think that a guy like that shouldn't spend the rest of his life with a woman like her, but if you ask me, I think they're probably having a very good time in the lounge as we speak.

Marlena: [Gasps] Craig.

Craig: What?

Marlena: Craig.

Craig: I will change the subject. How's Belle?

Marlena: She's fine.

Craig: Yeah?

Marlena: She's got to finish reading "Anna Karenina" by the end of the weekend.

Craig: Oh, God.

Marlena: Besides that, she's very glad to be home.

Craig: How's Brady? I mean, I haven't seen that much of him since Chloe got back.

Marlena: Really?

Craig: Yeah. I have a feeling Chloe's running into Philip a lot more at school and -- not that she'd tell us, but Nancy's trying so hard not to push.

Marlena: Believe me, I empathize.

Craig: I want to tell you something. I think that Philip is bad news.

Marlena: But you can't tell Chloe that, can you?

Craig: Exactly.

Marlena: I think Chloe has never had anybody in her life who cared enough to set boundaries for her, and she aches for it and doesn't even know it yet.

Craig: I think you're right. God, you're right. I owe you for all this free advice. And don't think it's going to go on forever.

Marlena: Just a year. She'll be in college, probably live away from home, maybe even be independent.

Craig: Oh, great, and then it gets worse, right?

Belle: Oh, my gosh, Jan!

Shawn-D: Jan?

Belle: Does she have a bump on her head? Shawn, check her.

Shawn-D: I don't know. I don't know.

Woman: I'm sorry. I-I didn't hit her. I-I didn't. I swear.

Shawn-D: Jan. Jan, are you okay?

Woman: Why isn't she moving?

Shawn-D: Jan, are you okay?

Belle: Shawn, maybe we shouldn't move her.

Mimi: Oh, my God. She was running from me. It's all my fault.

Shawn-D: All right, would someone please call 911?

Jan: No, no, I'm fine. I just -- I passed out. The car didn't hit me. You -- you didn't hit me. I'm -- Iím fine.

Shawn-D: Are you -- are you sure? But what made you pass out, Jan?

Jan: I feel sick.

Woman: I'll take you to the hospital.

Jan: O, no, no, no hospital. You didn't -- you didn't hit me. You can go.. I'm fine.

Woman: I don't feel right leaving you unless I know you're okay. Why don't you just let me call and cancel my business appoint--

Alice: Lonita.

Lonita: Alice Horton.

Alice: We'll be sure to see that she's well taken care of.

Jan: Yeah, I-I don't really need an audience here. Can you all just leave me alone?

Lonita: Thank you. I'll check in with you tomorrow. Thank you so much.

Alice: Sure.

Nicole: Jan --

Jan: I'm done talking to you.

Nicole: I just wanted to see if I could do something.

Jan: Yeah, like I said, just leave me alone.

Nicole: Fine. I have to get back to work anyway. Just take care of her, okay?

Alice: Yes, of course.

Belle: Jan, we're not going to leave you lying here. You can't even get up.

Shawn-D: Yeah, let me help you up, okay? Easy, easy.

Mimi: Are you going to take her home?

Shawn-D: No, I'm going to take her to the ER

Mimi: No way. And we are back.

Marie: Hi.

Nicole: Is Austin back?

Marie: In his office.

Nicole: Well, get him in mine now.

Austin: You rang, madam?

Nicole: What the hell is this message about Burton? He's at sea? What did you say to muddy the waters this time? I thought this deal was supposed to be final.

Austin: It is. It's -- look, you're mixing up your metaphors.

Nicole: Don't be cute. It's not working.

Austin: Okay, "at sea" means that he wants to treat us to a weekend on his yacht.

Nicole: A weekend?

Austin: Yeah, on the love boat. I mean, that's what he calls it.

Nicole: No, no, no. No way, Austin. God, I thought this guy was tasteful.. What, are you going to bring Sami?

Austin: No, it's just the two of us.

Nicole: Us? What did you tell this guy?

Austin: Well, you know --

Nicole: You know, I really hope that you didn't tell him I was going, because I am certainly not.

Alice: Miriam, hasn't this girl had a hard enough day? Why shouldn't my grandson take her to the doctor?

Mimi: Well, I don't know what's wrong with her, and I don't know why she's acting like she's dying when that dumb car didn't even hit her, but if she wants to waste Shawn's whole afternoon and he wants to let her, fine.

Jan: I didn't ask Shawn to do anything.

Belle: Mimi, can't you see that she's sick? She looks terrible.

Jan: Thanks, Belle.

Mimi: She said she doesn't even want to go.

Shawn-D: You want me to just leave her here?

Jan: If Shawn thinks I should get checked out, I'll do it.

Mimi: Oh, if Shawn thinks. At least you're going with them.

Belle: Actually, Shawn has his dad's truck, so if I went, it would probably be cramped.

Shawn-D: I feel bad leaving you here.

Belle: I'll be fine. I will just see you later, okay?

Shawn-D: Yeah. Let's go.

Greta: Stop what, Jack? I love you. That's why Iím saying these things.

Jack: Uh... Uh, uh, as a friend, you mean.

Greta: Yeah, Jack. Yes, of course as a friend. I mean, and if you don't feel the same way --

Jack: No, no, no. I-I do. I do. I do. I do.

Greta: Okay, then what?

Jack: I love spending time with you. I do. I just never want to have this conversation again... Ever.

Greta: That's fine with me, Jack. It's not like Jennifer is my favorite topic of conversation either.

Jack: I just can't stop thinking about her.

Greta: Oh. Then we' e going to have to do something to distract you, Jack.

Jack: No, no, no. That's the last thing I have to do. I need to focus on Jennifer as I never have before, like I never did in Africa. If Iíd done that in Africa, we would be married now.

Greta: Okay, then, what's your next move?

Jack: Tell me, honestly, do you think that Jennifer could find happiness in the heavily muscled arms of another man? Don't answer that. I don't know what my next move's going to be. Honestly... I'm running out of ideas.

Elizabeth: Well, back to the hotel I go.

Colin: Well, if I get home early enough, let's do some house hunting, shall we?

Elizabeth: You read my mind. I love you, darling.

Colin: Me too. Hey, thanks again .

Elizabeth: Okay. Bye.

Colin: Uh, Dr. Evans, could I have a word with you?

Marlena: Only if you call me Marlena.

Colin: Thank you. Marlena. I said something to you recently and I've been wanting to take it back ever since that moment.

Marlena: Oh. Is it about mistaking me for Craig's assistant? Believe me, it's -- it's forgotten.

Colin: Well, obviously not forgotten, but forgiven, for which I thank you. But, actually, it's about Jennifer Horton.

Marlena: I thought you didn't know Jennifer.

Colin: That's exactly it. I said I didn't know her, but I do. We were in Africa together when I worked with her father.

Marlena: Oh.

Colin: I apologize for misleading you. I can't understand myself why I did it, so if you'll... Forgive my lack of further explanation.

Marlena: All right.

Colin: Well, that's another little matter of embarrassment I hope we can put behind us.

Marlena: I'll do my best.

Colin: I'm glad we got that cleared up. Oh, um, I'm due back in trauma.

Jennifer: Okay, can we just drop this whole Colin thing right now, please?

Hope: Jen, just give him a chance. Hear what he has to say.

Alice: Hello, you two.

Jennifer: Gram!

Hope: Gran, oh, it's so good to see you. Look at you.

Jennifer: You are looking so much better.

Alice: Oh. I am? Well, I've bounced back.

Hope: Well, of course she does.

Alice: And, uh, I'm quite caught up on the family gossip.

Jennifer: Uh-oh.

Alice: I understand that you were spotted at the Brady Pub the other night with Brandon Walker. A date?

Hope: I didn't tell her. - I swear I did not tell her.

Jennifer : It's okay. There's no reason not to tell her. Gram, I know that you're not Brandon's biggest fan, but I promise you, he was a perfect gentleman, and I really don't think that I could have picked a better guy to ease me back into this whole dating thing.

Alice: And you're going to see him again?

Jennifer: Well, I-I hope so. Gram, please. Don't worry about me. I know that I am doing the right thing this time... I hope.

Belle: Mimi, what do you think Jan's going to do, jump Shawn at the hospital?

Mimi: I don't know. You tell me what that sympathy act was all about.

Belle: If you hadn't yelled at her in the first place, she would not have run into the street like that.

Mimi: Oh, so this is my fault. The car didn't even hit her, Belle, and I didn't make her jump in front of it.

Belle: Look, Mimi, Shawn and I talked earlier, and I told him how much this whole Jan thing was bothering me.

Shawn-D: I know it seems weird that I've been talking to Jan so much lately. It's weird to me, to be honest with you, but, Belle, you know Iíd never do anything to hurt you, right? I really wish I could explain to you what's going on, but that's just not something I can do right now. If it helps, it's not what you think, okay? There's nothing going on between Jan and me. There couldn't be. You are the only girl Iím thinking about, and I am thinking about you all the time.

Belle: Shawn, I know you would never hurt me, but when I see you and Jan talking, it looks like you guys have a secret.

Shawn-D: Can we -- can we just not talk about Jan? Instead, why don't we, uh... Why don't we talk about our movie date?

Belle: Our second official date.

Shawn-D: Yeah, that is, if you're still going with me.

Belle: Sure.

Shawn-D: Well, good, 'cause I can't wait.

Mimi: Belle. Belle, you talked to Shawn about this?

Belle: Yeah, and he was so cool. He told me how much he cared about me. He's just being a good guy when it comes to Jan, which is what I love about him.

Mimi: Okay.

Shawn-D: Uh, excuse me. Can we get a doctor or something?

Woman: Ooh, what seems to be the trouble?

Shawn-D: She was hit by a car, sort of.

Colin: I'll take her. Are you having any dizziness, headache, nausea?

Jan: Yeah, t the car didn't actually hit me. I don't know why I feel so sick.

Colin: Well, let's see what we can find out.

Jan: I know I said I didn't need help, but... Thanks for bringing me here. You've taken real good care of me.

Shawn-D: Yeah. You are amazing.

We will return for the second half of "Days of Our Lives" in just a moment.

Austin: I'm not crazy enough to speak for you. That's why you got a message yourself.

Nicole: Then why does he think we're a couple?

Austin: He doesn't anymore. I don't know. It's something he assumed when we had our meeting, but I straightened it out.

Nicole: Oh.

Austin: Something's wrong.

Nicole: What do you mean?

Austin: Well, I mean, it's not like you to let that one go -- I mean, no attacks to my manhood.

Nicole: I'm tired right now, Austin.

Austin: Exactly. Something's wrong. I know, I know, you don't -- you don't want to talk about it.

Yeah. Well, Burton was right about one thing. I do know you that well.

Nicole: Want to bet?

Austin: Okay, last chance, and then Iím going to leave you alone. Are you sure you don't want to talk about it?

Belle: Mimi, you're acting like you don't trust Shawn.

Mimi: Of course I trust him. The person I don't trust is her.

Belle: Okay, but if Shawn says that he's committed to me, why don't you believe him? I mean, he's not taking Jan out on Saturday. He's taking me.

Mimi: I know that.

Belle: So what do you think she's going to do, hypnotize him? Or is she that tempting that you think he's going to choose her over me?

Mimi: Stop, stop.

Belle: Why don't you stop?

Mimi: I'm sorry.

Belle: Look, Mimi, I was all crazy about this before, too, but after what Shawn said to me today, I'm not worried, and you shouldn't be, either.

Mimi: Hey, I know Shawn wanted you to go to the hospital with him, so why don't you surprise him? We could walk over.

Belle: Okay. And you can see how wrong you are.

Shawn-D: All right. You're going to go see a doctor now, okay?

Jan: Yeah.

Shawn-D: All right.

Shawn-D: Oop. Hi.

Marlena: Hi.

Shawn-D: You're probably wondering what that was about.

Marlena: Mm-hmm.

Shawn-D: Well, Belle and I, Jan, we were all at Salem Place, and, well, actually, she almost got hit by a car.

Marlena: Oh, my goodness.

Shawn-D: Yeah, she's all right, um, but she's just, you know, a little shaken up. We were worried about her, so Belle and I and Gran thought we should just bring her to the hospital, get her checked out.

Marlena: That's very sweet of you.

Shawn-D: Sweet. Ha ha ha. It's something your daughter would say.

Marlena: Yes? All right then, how about...Responsible? A quality I would like a young man dating my daughter to have.

Shawn-D: I try.

Marlena: Senior year -- what a crazy year, huh? I mean, between sports and community service and missing the first few weeks of school --

Shawn-D: Yeah. Yeah.

Marlena: And dating. Dating takes a lot of time, doesn't it?

Shawn-D: Dating -- um, well, I guess, but, well, it doesn't seem that way.

Marlena: Belle tells me that you're on track to set some sort of a basketball record. For assists, was it?

Shawn-D: Yeah, yeah, that's it.

Marlena: Congratulations.

Shawn-D: Thanks.

Marlena: We may have a chance to see you play. We're going to go watch Belle cheer.

Shawn-D: Oh, boy, that's great. My parents are going to be there, too.

Marlena: Mm. Goody. Have you -- have you thought about, I don't know, applying for a sports scholarship?

Shawn-D: I don't know. I-I doubt it.

Marlena: Your mom talked about the fact you've thought about merchant marines.

Shawn-D: Yeah... Maybe.

Marlena: Have you -- have you applied to any colleges?

Shawn-D: Uh, well, I might. I'm not sure.

Marlena: Belle's got a stack of, uh, of applications on her desk she hasn't even gotten into yet.

Shawn-D: Are you just worried she's not going to get done with them?

Marlena: No. No, Belle is responsible. Homework, deadlines -- I never have to hound her.

Shawn-D: Yeah. No, she's great. I'm sure she can get into any college she wants, she's so smart.

Marlena: Mm. Well, I'm glad we had a chance to talk. I hope you don't think that I was interrogating you.

Shawn-D: No. No, uh... You know, you're like practically family to me, Marlena. And you have a great daughter. I just hope I haven't caused any problems between the two of you. That's definitely not my intention, 'cause I respect you... and Belle. And, you know, we both realize how lucky she is to have you for a mom.

Marlena: That's nice to hear. You worried about Jan?

Shawn-D: Yeah. I just... I don't know what's wrong with her. I just really hope she's okay.

Greta: Jack, you have spent the last -- how many months? -- Doing two things. One, trying to get Jennifer back. Two, trying to find a job so you can get Jennifer back. And you know what, Jack? You know how I know your heart's not really in it? Because if you truly wanted a job, you wouldn't be sitting here waiting for the phone to ring. And --

Jack: But wait a minute. Oliver Wentworth promised --

Greta: No, no, no, no. And if you really wanted Jennifer back, you wouldn't be sitting here waiting for a job. You're willing yourself to fail. And of course you are. We both know why you are. How else do you explain acting like a jerk every time you see Jennifer in a public place?

Jack: Oh, thanks. This is turning into a really great pep talk, really.

Greta: Jack, I am just being honest with you.

Jack: You've got the answers to all my problems. You do.

Greta: Yeah.

Jack: Thank you. Oh...

[Telephone rings]

Jack: What were you saying about waiting for the phone to ring, huh? Maybe this is it.

Hope: Oh, Gran, do you need a ride home? All right already! Look, I'm not trying to get rid of you. I just want to make sure that you get home okay.

Alice: No, I'm fine, thank you.

Hope: Okay.

Alice: I'm meeting a friend in a few minutes, and she's taking me back....

Hope: Oh, okay.

Alice: After her break.

Hope: All right. Okay, so you don't need your granddaughter.

Alice: Well, you take care, both of you.

Jennifer: You, too, Gran. We love you.

Hope: I love you, too, Gran. Well done.

Jennifer: Oh, come on, I wasn't being too defensive?

Hope: I think you were great.

Jennifer: I mean, I know that grandma's just looking out for me, but, you know, we start talking about Jack, she talks about how sacred marriage vows are. And I believe that they're sacred, too. I just wish she wouldn't make me feel so guilty.

Hope: Honestly, I don't think she was trying to make you feel guilty. Okay, so the "till death do you part" part didn't work out. But you tried. Actually, I think you're in a really great place right now.

Jennifer: Oh, come on.

Hope: All things considered, absolutely.

Jennifer: Really? Come on, I'm living with Jack, I'm dating Brandon, and Colin shows up.

Hope: Like I told you. Three men? Most women should be so lucky as you.

Jennifer: Lucky is not how I see it. I mean, Jack doesn't count. Okay, and Brandon -- it's not serious, so it doesn't really count. And Colin certainly doesn't count.

Hope: Colin, yeah. Um, hmm. There's something I haven't had a chance to tell you.

Colin: You can put your jacket on now. I'm worried you're experiencing some sort of post-traumatic stress.

Jan: I saw the counselor like you said.

Colin: That's excellent. You had to tell her what happened to you, I presume.

Jan: Uh, sort of, but I don't think Iím going to go back.

Colin: I'm sorry to hear that.

Jan: Don't start being pushy, too, okay?

Colin: I don't even know what happened to you, Jan. Right now I'm very concerned about your physical and mental well-being. - Now, do you think you lost consciousness?

Jan: Um... Yeah, maybe for a sec.

Colin: Have you been able to eat, sleep?

Jan: No. Is this all from the gonorrhea? 'Cause I thought you said that was gone.

Colin: It is, and you don't have any fever. I'm fairly certain your symptoms are psychological in origin. That doesn't mean they aren't causing you considerable distress. And we really need to get to the root of the problem if you're going to be healthy again.

Jan: I'm fine. I j-- [groans]

Colin: Jan?

Jan: I just want to go home, okay? And I don't want to talk to the counselor again.

Shawn-D: Jan, are you okay?

Colin: As far as I can tell, physically, she seems to be fine.

Shawn-D: Great. That's great.

Jennifer: Oh, my gosh. You look so serious. I mean, it couldn't be any worse than him telling you we were casual acquaintances in Africa. Oh, Hope, he -- he didn't tell you that I followed him to Ireland like a jerk.

Hope: I heard they'd led you on. It's not your fault. And, no, he didn't mention Ireland. Anyhow, given all that, I guess this shouldn't be so upsetting for you to hear, but --

Jennifer: But what? Hope, tell me.

Harold: The make over is complete.

Greta: Oh.

Harold: Out with the old, and in with the new.

Greta: That's nice.

Harold: Nice? He's there. Is he there?

Greta: Uh-huh. So, um, are you happy with the way things turned out?

Harold: Oh, yes. Especially if he's happy.

Belle: Mimi...

Mimi: Did I say anything?

Belle: Ahem.

Shawn-D: Belle. Hi. I'm glad you came.

Belle: Hi, mom.

Marlena: Hi, honey.

Belle: So, Jan, are you okay?

Jan: Yeah. Um, I can make it home by myself, so see you guys later.

Shawn-D: Are you sure?

Jan: Yeah.

Shawn-D: Okay. Well, I will talk to you later.

Jan: Okay.

Shawn-D: All right. Well, that went quickly. Thanks for understanding.

Belle: Of course.

Shawn-D: You want to get out of here?

Belle: Definitely.

Shawn-D: All right.

Belle: Mimi, I will call you later. Bye, mom.

Marlena: Bye, sweetie.

Marlena: Jan?

Jan: Yeah?

Marlena: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to startle you. I'm Belle's mother.

Jan: Yeah, I know who you are.

Marlena: I work here at the hospital.

Jan: You're a doctor. Dr. Marlena.

Marlena: Yes. I can tell that you're very shaken. From what I read in the papers, you went through a very traumatic event. And Belle tells me that you've had a pretty rough time.

Jan: So...

Marlena: So, if you want to talk, I'm here for you.

Colin: That's a very good idea, Jan.

Jan: You told her?

Colin: No. I mean, first of all, there's nothing I could've told her since you wouldn't confide in me. I merely caught Dr. Evans' eye, and she understood that you might need a friend.

Jan: A friend. Right. You promised to keep it between us, so you'd better keep your mouth shut.

Marlena: Jan, if you're in trouble, we want to help you. But you've got to tell us what's going on.

Greta: So, um, how do you suggest we proceed?

Harold: Well, things went so well the first time -- at least on an interpersonal level -- that I think Jack and I might do well with some alone time.

Greta: I could probably arrange that.

Jack: Ha. "Bakery worker, barber, beautician." Well, beer watch out, or she'll have me applying for that one. And she wonders why I'm not out there hitting the pavement. Oh, here's one. "Carpet mechanic." What the hell is that?

Greta: I should probably scope things out on this end, and then, you know, get back to you.

Harold: Don't worry. I'll occupy myself in the meantime. I'm kind of excited about this new look. It's fun to shake things up every once and a while.

Greta: Well, um, I'm really glad things worked out for you. So, um, you take care.

Harold: Talk to you soon.

Jack: Job prospect?

Greta: Prospect -- yeah. But nothing that will solve all my problems.

Greta: You never know.

Jack: Really? Well, in that case, bring it on.

Hope: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make it sound like it's, you know, this really big deal. It's just that, well, Colin's engaged.

Jennifer: Oh.

Hope: Phew. See? It wasn't so bad, was it?

Jennifer: Did you meet her?

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Jennifer: What's she like?

Hope: I'd have to say that she is very... Fat. Ugly. Tail, horns, the whole nine yards.

Jennifer: She's beautiful, huh?

Hope: Yeah.

Jennifer: Well, that's good. That is good. I-I'm very happy for him. Thank you for letting me know.

Nicole: All right. Austin, if it'll get you off my back, I'm sure you guessed this bad mood is about my father.

Austin: I did.

Nicole: I'm just worried that, before he died, he did something to someone... Look, I don't know, okay? I don't know, Austin. I don't know anything. That's all there is to say, I guess.

Austin: Okay. Okay. You know, it wouldn't kill you to take some time off..

Nicole: Oh, yeah? Well, my last break in Puerto Rico wasn't exactly what you'd call relaxing. And I'm still saying no to that boat thing.

Austin: Yeah, yeah, well, someday we'll be able to afford our own yachts, and so, you know, we don't have to be in the same one.

Nicole: Hey, I can afford my own yacht right now.

Austin: Oh... Yeah. Yeah, that's right, you can.

Jan: You know what? I'm not in trouble, and I don't need a shrink. I just want to go home.

Marlena: What was that about?

Colin: I'm sorry. Doctor-patient confidentiality.

Marlena: She's not okay.

Colin: I know. Thanks for trying.

Mimi: You're right. That girl definitely needs help.

Marlena: [Gasps] Mimi, were you listening?

Mimi: Don't worry. No one said anything worth hearing. Jan is a mess, but it's a waste of time to try to do anything for her.

Marlena: Why do you say that?

Mimi: She makes her own misery. Anyhow, the only person she wants help from is Shawn Brady.

Marlena: What do you mean by that?

Mimi: Ever since the island, I don't know what happened, but every other word out of her mouth is Shawn.

Marlena: Are you saying that Shawn is interested in Jan, romantically?

Mimi: No, no. And please don't tell Belle I said any of this. I mean, Shawn would do anything for Belle. He cares about her so much. But if Jan goes after him, she's got a way of making people do things they never thought. Look, take it from one who knows. She's going to get what she wants.

Shawn-D: I really wish I could tell you what's going on with Jan.

Belle: I know you do.

Shawn-D: This sounds horrible, but lately, she's kind of latched on to me, and I need her to find help from someone who really knows what they're doing, because this isn't doing either one of us any good.

Belle: Yeah, everyone's kind of noticed.

Shawn-D: Belle, Iím sorry.

Belle: Well, look, I am glad that you're the kind of guy who wants to help someone in trouble, but I don't like Jan. I don't know what the deal is with her and I don't know why I was so jealous, but this whole thing was really getting on my nerves.

Shawn-D: I know. So let's not talk about Jan.

Belle: That is such a good idea.

Shawn-D: Yeah. So, uh, let's see, what were we doing before all this happened?

Belle: Let me think.
