Shawn-D: I'm up by 20, man. You're blowing it, Phil, you're blowing it!
Philip: Come on!
Shawn-D: Ha ha ha! Oh! The game is over! I won. What happened to you? Space out?
Philip: It's a game! Give me a break!
Cynthia: Philip needs me rooting for him --
Philip: Get away from me, Cynthia.
Cynthia: That's not what you said Saturday night.
Belle: Chloe! Chloe? Chloe, Iím sorry --
Brady: She's not here, Belle.
Belle: She can't be gone. She didn't even say goodbye. Where did she go?
Brady: She went to go find Philip.
Belle: What? Not with the way she feels about him right now. Why would Chloe want to see Philip?
Brady: Because she's still in love with the guy.
Bo: Thanks, pop.
Hope: I am so sorry. I am so sorry that Iím late. They had to do some final fittings on my dress and some alterations and -- well, then I had to buy some shoes. I am sorry.
Bo: You got a closet full of shoes.
Hope: But none that match my new dress. You finished with that coffee? Good, because let's go. I have a ton more things to do before the party.
Bo: Hold on there, Imelda. You don't think you're getting away with this, do you?
Lexie: Has the champagne arrived?
Eliana: Yes, it was delivered an hour ago, and the caterers have set it out to chill already.
Lexie: Oh, I'll get the door to give me something to do instead of standing here going quietly out of my mind! Let's see. Okay, good.
Lexie: John! Did you read your invitation? The party's at 8:00. You are way too early.
John: Yeah, that invitation. That was a nice touch -- glitter blowing out all over my carpet when I tore open the envelope. What a surprise. Apparently not as surprising as what you got in store for tonight, though, I bet.
Lexie: John, if you're expecting a bad time, why don't you stay home?
John: What, and leave Hope at your mercy? Nah. Not a chance. I'll be right here just watching everything that goes down.
Lexie: John! Nothing's going to go down. This isn't a Stallone movie. It's an elegant party in honor of my best friend.
John: I'd hate to see what you'd do if you didn't like her.
Lexie: Get out of my home.
John: Echoes of your old man. You know, I can't count the number of times he tried throwing me out of this place, but you want to know something? I kept coming back -- again and again and again. You know, he can pull your strings all he wants from behind the scenes. Go ahead, use his tricks. Throw a few of your own in. Knock yourself out, honey. But you will not activate Gina's memories. I will not let you get to Hope.
Cynthia: Shawn, it's been too long. My parents are still out of town and I'm lonely. Why don't you and Philip come over and we'll have a private party for three?
Shawn-D: Yeah, that'll happen, Cynthia.
Cynthia: You guys don't know how to have fun. I do, and I'm a good teacher. I knew you couldn't stay away from me.
Philip: Oh, no? Well, you're dead wrong. I never want to see you again. You got that?
Cynthia: Never's a long time, babe. Don't worry. I won't hold you to it.
Philip: I hate her.
Shawn-D: Cynthia's just being Cynthia.
Philip: What, you're defending her? She's trying to ruin my life.
Shawn-D: We all know what her trip is, all right? You tried to use her to make Chloe jealous. Now it's come back to haunt you.
Cynthia: That boy is racked with guilt over poor Chloe Lane, but he's dreaming about me at night. Won't be long before he's back for more of what he got after the movies.
Mimi: Tell the truth, Cynthia. Did you really add Philip Kiriakis to your...list?
Cynthia: Well, he took me home. We had a few beers to relax and before I knew what was going on, he had all my clothes off. That's how hot he was for me. He took me places Iíve never been before, places you've only dreamed about, Lockhart.
Mimi: Oh, my God, I can't believe it. Wait. Yes -- yes, I do. He's a guy..
Cynthia: He's not just any guy, Meems. He's the best Iíve ever been with.
Mimi: Well, so much for true love.
Cynthia: If you mean that drippy Chloe Lane, trust me -- Philip wasn't thinking about any woman but me that night.
Belle: Don't tell me that, Brady. Did Chloe say she was in love? Did she use those words?
Brady: She said that she... Couldn't forget about him.
Belle: I can't believe this.
Brady: Oh, come on, Belle. What if -- what if you found out that Shawn did something bad? Do you think you could all of a sudden stop caring about him?
Belle: Oh, no, no, no, no, you can't use Shawn as an example because he wouldn't do anything like --
Brady: Belle, nobody is all good. Everybody's done something that they don't want others to find out about.
Belle: Not Shawn.
Brady: Okay, imagine -- what if Shawn had hurt you? Do you think you could just push a button and your love for him would disappear?
Belle: I guess not. I don't know.
Brady: Of course not, Belle. We don't have that kind of control over our feelings. If we did, we wouldn't have sad love songs and definitely not opera.
Belle: Okay, maybe you're right, but people can respect themselves. I would. If Shawn were to do something like that with another girl, I would still have feelings for him, but I wouldn't be with him anymore. I'd -- Iíd hope Iíd move on with my life.
Brady: You're a pretty tough girl, aren't you?
Belle: Well, I just... I hope Iím stronger than Chloe's acting right now.
Brady: Don't worry about Chloe so much.
Belle: She's one of my best friends. I just don't want her to make a huge mistake.
Brady: All right, well, leave Chloe to me. I'll worry about her. You just worry about being happy with Shawn.
Nancy: So, what's new?
Chloe: Philip took this other girl out on a date and today she was bragging about it to everybody, saying that they went back to her house and her parents were away.
Nancy: Oh, Chloe.
Chloe: I just keep remembering all these sweet things about him. Nancy, the more I try to figure out how I feel, the more confused I get. I'm scared.
Nancy: Honey, what are you scared of?
Chloe: Making a mistake and being miserable for the rest of my life.
Nancy: Do you want to get back together with Philip again?
Chloe: I keep waiting for these feelings to stop, but even after not seeing Philip for an entire summer I still miss him so much.
Nancy: Well, that's because he -- he threw you a curve when -- when he almost died on that island.
Chloe: But he couldn't help what happened.
Nancy: I know. Honey, what I mean is, is that your heartstrings got pulled on when -- when you didn't think he was going to make it and that, in turn, got all your love feelings stirred up again.
Chloe: I suppose that's true, but I am stirred up, and I don't know what to do about it.
Hope: I'm not trying to get away with anything.
Bo: Oh, yeah? I'm sitting here for hours waiting for you. You come back from shopping and you don't even show me your dress.
Hope: Unh-unh-unh, and you're not seein' nothing till the party.
Bo: You could always give me a private showing at home.
Hope: Yeah, and if I did that we'd never make it to the party, would we?
Bo: But we'd have a lot more fun.
Hope: Ha ha.
Bo: I know you're looking forward to this thing and, you know, Lexie's throwing you a big shindig, and it's about time someone did because you deserve it. You are the mother of the year.
Hope: I don't need any awards or applause as long as I have you and the boys to always come home to, Brady. Come here. Now back to that private party. Let's talk about that.
Hope: What do you say we have it after the big shindig?
Lexie: John, I don't understand why you're making such a fuss. It is what Hope wants, isn't it?
John: What did you just say?
Lexie: Well, I mean, I know that hope doesn't want to be Gina -- once was enough of that nightmare -- but if she wants to remember, why are you standing in her way?
John: Why are you pushing it so hard?
Lexie: I'm not! For God's sake. Look, um, I'm giving a huge party in a few hours and I have things to attend to. I do not need to be raked over the coals by someone who, apparently, isn't my friend anymore. So get out.
John: You know, Lexie, when you first moved in to Stefano's house here, I really thought that this was all wrong for you... But now I know it's exactly where you belong.
Lexie: I said get out, John!
John: I'll be back at 8:00 -- watching you.
John: Oh, yeah, Lexie, you've got it going on, all right. Just what are you up to, though?
Lexie: Rolf, John is very suspicious. I don't see how we can possibly go ahead now.
Rolf: But we must. Everything is in place.
Lexie: No, we'll have to reschedule it or postpone it. I can't risk being discovered.
Rolf: Alexandra, there is no way that john can learn what we are doing. Your father trained me well. All you have to do is host this elegant dinner party. I will take care of the rest. Once the chip is activated, Hope will remember her love for John Black.
Lexie: Yeah, she'll remember conceiving a child with him.
Rolf: Well, a child that both she and John believe to be J.T. their bond for each other will grow even stronger through their devotion to their son. Now John is coming, isn't he? He has to be here, Alexandra, hmm? When you see Hope look at John with that great love in her eyes, you will know that Gina's memories are alive in her. Then you will signal me.
Lexie: Right. I'll signal you.
Rolf: And I will pull the switch to make those memories permanent.
Lexie: Permanent, yeah, and Hope will feel all of Gina's passion for John. Oh, God. It'll be the end of two of the finest marriages Iíve ever known.
Shawn: Hey, the Brady clan has busted out all over the place. Oh, our mother of the year. Oh.
Hope: I can't tell you how much it means to me to have you and Caroline coming tonight.
Shawn: We wouldn't miss it, even if it does mean setting foot in that evil man's house.
Hope: It's Abe and Lexie's house now -- it's not his.
Shawn: Right. Hey, John, good to see you. Where's your bride?
John: She's home. I need to talk to you two right now. Will you excuse us, Shawn?
Shawn: Huh? Oh, yeah. Sure. Can I get you a cup of Caroline's famous coffee or anything?
John: Another time.
Shawn: All right.
Bo: Sit down. Little intense there, huh, John?
Hope: Yeah, really. What's going on?
John: I need to talk to you about tonight, about this party that Lexie's throwing for you.
Hope: Yeah, what about it?
John: You can't go.
Shawn-D: So I guess Chloe hates your guts now.
Philip: I guess.
Shawn-D: Well, you don't sound too sure. Didn't she bite your head off?
Philip: It was weird, man. It's what I expected, you know, for her to flip out and call me names, but she didn't.
Shawn-D: So maybe you still have a chance with her.
Philip: No, no, I mean, she didn't pin a medal on me or anything, but she didn't bite my head off either, and I feel worse.
Shawn-D: So you're saying...
Philip: That it's really over this time.
Shawn-D: No chance you're going to work it out?
Philip: I don't think so. Why, do you think there is? You know Chloe pretty well. Did she say something to you?
Shawn-D: All right, hang on. First of all, no one really knows Chloe, all right? She's like a sphinx or something, like a mystery to everyone -- well, except Brady.
Philip: Leave Brady out of it. This whole thing is his fault.
Shawn-D: Okay, whoa, hang on a second. You were the one who made the decision to go with Cynthia to the movies. You were the one who made the even worse decision to go back to her house afterwards. I hope it was worth it at least.
Philip: I didn't even want to be with Cynthia, man. Forget it. It doesn't even matter anymore.
Shawn-D: If you just said you wanted Chloe to be your girlfriend again, you picked a lousy way to get her back.
Belle: And what makes you think you can take care of Chloe?
Brady: Well, I'm not going to advise her on what color nail polish to use. I mean, that's your territory.
Belle: That is so insulting. You think I'm president of bimbos "r" us, but Chloe and I have been through a lot of tough stuff together. We have a very deep friendship.
Brady: I'm sorry, Belle. I didn't mean to put you down. It's just that I get Chloe on a different level from most people. I recognize her otherness as a quality I have in myself.
Belle: I guess you guys do have some kind of special connection.
Belle: I'll get it.
Brady: I'll cover your back.
Belle: Meems, what's wrong?
Mimi: Belle, you won't believe this. Oh, hi, Brady. From the department of major dirt, I just heard the most amazing... What are you doing here?
Brady: I live here -- second floor, first door on the right.
Mimi: Ha ha. I mean... I meant I wasn't expecting you to be here.
Brady: Well, you obviously have some juicy gossip you want to tell my sister. Don't let me stop you.
Mimi: In front of the m-a-l-e?
Brady: Well, the m-a-l-e is on his way out.
Belle: Are you going to go see Chloe?
Brady: No, I'm going to go find Philip.
Mimi: I was just at .Com. He was there.
Brady: Thanks for the tip, Meems.
Belle: Brady, don't make things any worse than they already are.
Brady: I will not let Philip hurt Chloe again. It's over. He's done it for the last time.
Hope: Ha ha. This is a joke, isn't it? How can we not go to the party tonight? It's in my honor.
Bo: I'm sure he knows that. What's this about? Is DiMera back in town? Is that what's going on?
John: His hands are all over this thing tonight, Bo. He won't be doing any close-ups, though. He's leaving that for Lexie.
Hope: It's just a party.
John: At Stefano's house and half the town is going to be there. This thing's going to get very chaotic very quickly. I don't want you anywhere near that place.
Bo: Hey, slow down here. I'm sure Abe's got all the security issues worked out.
Hope: And Iím sure that Lexie would never do anything to hurt me. So unless you have some specific threat, I'm going to this party tonight.
Rolf: We all face temptations, Alexandra. After tonight, Hope's love for Bo will be severely tested, but she may resist her lust for John. It's not likely, but it's possible. In any case, lives will be turned upside-down, which is precisely what you want, Alexandra. Your dear friends will be so distracted by the sudden turmoil in their marriages, they won't have time to think about whether your baby was switched with Hope's.
Lexie: But what if something goes wrong tonight?
Rolf: How many times must I reassure you, Alexandra? I don't make mistakes. Everything will go according to plan. Are you resolved? Need I remind you of what you could lose if you weaken?
Lexie: No. I'll never let anyone take my son away from me. Aarghh!
We will return for the second half of "Days of Our Lives" in just a moment.
John: I hate to bring up the ugly past, but Stefano turned you into Gina once before. Do you know he won't try again?
Bo: Hey, whoa, whoa. Don't go scaring my wife unless you have some proof to back it up.
John: No, Iím just -- just urging caution. That's all. That's all. Part of DiMera's success is always staying one step ahead. Now, a party like this is the kind of setting DiMera likes.
Bo: True, but think about it. If Hope remembers her past as Gina, she will be able to implicate DiMera in some major criminal activity. Why would he risk that?
John: Well, maybe he's got another agenda we don't know about. Look, when he didn't come back to Salem, we were all surprised, right? And then when Lexie moved into Stefano's house, we swore that we would never go there, and here she is throwing you a party, and half the town's invited. Isn't that a little suspicious? You tell me there's not a grand plan here. Well, I'm telling you Stefano's the brains behind it. He's got Lexie out in front doing the heavy lifting. Your best friend is going to betray you.
Nancy: Sweetheart... This isn't what I expected from you.
Chloe: I know. My true nature has been revealed. Instead of a heart of steel, I'm a total cream puff.
Nancy: It's just that I am so used to you being angry when things don't go your way.
Chloe: Trust me. When I first heard about Philip's date with Cynthia, I was raging mad, but when I started talking to him, I couldn't hold on to all that anger. He was so sad.
Nancy: Do you think maybe Philip was playing you a little?
Chloe: Maybe a little, but he really did miss me so much this past summer and it's been hard for him to be back at school and not be able to be my boyfriend. I know Philip doesn't care about that other girl. He just asked her out because I kept turning him down. He's kind of lost without me and I guess I find that attractive. He needs me, Nancy.
Nancy: Chloe, I don't care what Philip needs. We can just let his mother and father worry about that. I want you to think about you and what you need. Ask yourself, honey, "is Philip Kiriakis the right person for me or not?"
Philip: Thanks for always reminding me of how much I've messed up.
Shawn-D: Hey, any time.
Philip: Man, it's senior year. I'm supposed to be dating my dream girl. Instead, Iím flying solo. You've got Belle. What's up with that?
Shawn-D: I got lucky. Don't go -- don't go there.
Philip: You are lucky, man. Belle's -- Belle's sweet and beautiful and fun and --
Shawn-D: And mine.
Philip: Hey, who was after you for about a year to make a move? I'm happy for you guys. You belong together. So you want to shoot some hoops after dinner?
Shawn-D: Uh, I'm taking Belle to this party tonite at the DiMera mansion..
Philip: Oh, yeah. I heard about that. I wasn't invited.
Shawn-D: Well, my mom is the guest of honor. I'm sure I could hook you up with an invitation.
Philip: No, no, my dad wouldn't want me to go anyway. Him and Stefano DiMera weren't exactly buddies. Wait a second. Is Chloe going to be there?
Shawn-D: Belle said she might. I know the Wesleyís are going.
Philip: Man, if I could just see Chloe, even from across the room --
Shawn-D: All right, Phil. Get a grip, man.
Philip: Hey, you'd feel the same way if Belle broke up with you.
Philip: I'm serious.
Brady: All right, you and me outside -- let's go.
Mimi: At first, I couldn't believe it. My brain received the information, but it got instantly rejected. You know, when -- like when you're trying to get change and the machine keeps spitting out your dollar because it's too crinkled? I mean, Philip and sinful Cynthia? But there they were at .Com.
Belle: Wait a second. Wait. Philip and Cynthia were together at .Com as a couple?
Mimi: Oh, she was hanging all over the guy, rubbing up against him like a cat with a scratching post. It was a fascinating sight to see. Cynthia made sure of that. She was broadcasting it pretty loud, too, bragging about her big night with Philip Kiriakis and how they got naked.
Belle: How could Philip do it?
Mimi: I'm sure Cynthia made it real easy for him.
Belle: No, no, I mean, how could he do that to Chloe?
Mimi: Oh, right. Yeah. And how is my good friend Chloe?
Chloe: It's like my mind won't let me understand what's good for me and what's bad for me. All I'm sure of is the way I feel.
Nancy: Sweetheart, would you like my advice, as someone who's been through some heartbreak in her time?
Nancy: It may feel good right now to have Philip need you so much, but as you go through life on a day-to-day basis, honey, it is so good to have someone strong by your side -- a man who can take care of himself.
Chloe: But isn't love about giving?
Nancy: Let's just say it's -- it's like an exchange. You give, then he gives, and it goes back and forth. I find it's -- it's so wonderful to have strong people around you who -- who want you to do better for yourself.
Chloe: But that's what Philip says I do for him.
Nancy: But what does he do for you, sweetheart? Honey, Iím so sorry. I didn't mean to make you cry, and that's another reason I don't like Philip Kiriakis -- he makes you cry too much. You know what? Maybe betraying you with this tramp is the best favor he could have done for you. I mean, at least now you know that the relationship is finally over.
Chloe: But I don't want it to be over. I know that sounds crazy, but that's how I honestly feel.
Nancy: Can I ask you something else then? Chloe, where does Brady fit into all this?
Shawn-D: You can't come in --
Brady: Shawn, this is between me and the stud Kiriakis. If I have to drag you outside, I will.
Philip: Man, I'm embarrassed to even be related to you.
Brady: It goes both ways, Philip. Outside...Now.
Philip: It's okay.
Cynthia: Feeling better now?
Shawn-D: Like you care how I feel.
Cynthia: I know how to make you feel good, right?
Shawn-D: It's not enough for you to get what you want. You got to tell the whole world about it, Cynthia? It's wrong.
Philip: You want to punch me? Go ahead. Nothing can make me feel as bad as I already do.
Brady: You feel bad? You? What about Chloe? She's the one who's hurting here, Philip.
Philip: I know that! I also know you're going to use this stupid-ass thing I did to get Chloe for yourself! I can't believe I made it this easy for you.
Shawn-D: It's not cool to kiss and tell, Cynthia.
Cynthia: Are you talking about me and Philip now or me and you?
Shawn-D: Look, that was two years ago, okay? Nothing really happened.
Cynthia: Nothing? I wonder if Belle would think it was nothing.
Chloe: Brady? Brady's my friend, if that's what you mean.
Nancy: Your friend?
Chloe: Yeah, practically my best friend lately. We spent so much time together this summer that he really knows me well, better than you or Craig or even Belle. Brady helps me figure out how I feel about things, but it -- it's not romantic or anything.
Nancy: It's not?
Chloe: No. Philip is the one who loves me. Philip truly loves me. Nancy, he's so passionate that sometimes I feel like Iím going to faint. It's so intense. I know that I will never be loved like that ever again.
Nancy: Chloe, Chloe, if you only hear one thing I say, you listen to me now. You will be loved again. Philip Kiriakis is just your first love.
Chloe: I know that you're wrong.
Nancy: Sweetheart, I may be wrong about a lot of things, but, Chloe, about love Iím an expert. You will love and be loved again, and it will be so wonderful because of this bittersweet time that you're going through right now, and, Chloe, love with the right person -- it's so beautiful, but it's all about the timing.
Chloe: In opera, when the the hero and heroine fall in love, it means that one of them will tragically die before the curtain falls.
Nancy: But I'm not talking about opera. I'm talking about real life.
Chloe: But opera is real to me. It's all that I had to hold on to as a child and it is all that I have left now. Look, I'm going to go upstairs to my room and listen to some music.
Nancy: Come to the DiMera mansion with us.
Chloe: The DiMera mansion?
Nancy: Craig and I were invited to this swanky party there and so are you. Belle's coming.
Chloe: Thanks, but I'm not in a party mood.
Nancy: I think Brady will be there, too.
Brady: Philip, what do I have to do to get through to you? Chloe and I are just friends, and I really hate it when people hurt my friends, especially when they get their hearts broken by selfish punks like you.
Philip: Stay out of my life.
Brady: Oh, I will. Don't worry about that. First, I need a favor.
Philip: What kind of favor?
Brady: If Chloe tries to talk to you, donít. Blow her off. Tell her that you've moved on and you want her to do the same.
Philip: She wouldn't believe me. I'm not that good of a liar. It's not like you got to worry. She hates my guts anyway. Wait a minute. Why did you come charging in to .Com like that? Did Chloe change her mind? What do you know, Brady?
Hope: I refuse to believe that one of my closest friends would intentionally harm me, John.
Bo: John, look, I know you're coming from a good place here, and just in case there's some truth to what you're saying...
Hope: Bo, I --
Bo: You and I will keep our eyes peeled for warning signs while you lap up the caviar.
Hope: Bo, this isn't funny. Could you stop it?
Bo: What I'm saying is let's not freak out, and keep our minds open to the possibilities.
John: All Iím saying is, both of you, just stay home tonight.
Bo: That would be like running away from DiMera, and I will not do that. If he's up to something, we'll be ready. In fact, Iím hoping he shows up 'cause Iíd love to get my hands around his neck and squeeze the life out of him.
Lexie: My father is absolutely right. It's all about protecting my son. I just have to keep reminding myself. Oh, I just remembered -- Barb. What if she really does show up like she threatened?
Rolf: If Barb is that foolish, I guarantee you it will be the last party she ever attends.
Shawn-D: Will you get over yourself, okay? 'Cause something that happened once -- two years ago -- it's not going to affect what Iíve got going with Belle right now.
Cynthia: Are you 100% sure about that? Man, you really are whipped. Don't worry. I'm not going to tell your precious Belle. You're cute, but not available, and I'm not into wasting my time and effort. Philip now? He's on the market, but I'm going to be taking him off real soon. He's going to be property of Cynthia and loving every minute of it. He just doesn't know it yet.
Mimi: Maybe I do have something to worry about. I'm telling you, Belle. Ever since Kevin took off his shirt at the campfire on the island --
Belle: Where was I?
Mimi: Off with Shawn doing unprintable things.
Belle: No, I wasn't. Was I?
Mimi: Yeah. Belle, girls are all over Kevin. It drives me crazy.
Belle: Just think of it this way -- they're jealous of something that you've got, and that's pretty cool, right?
[Cellular phone rings]
Shawn-D: Hey, Belle.
Belle: Oh, hi, Shawn. What are you doing?
Shawn-D: I'm at .Com. What are you doing?
Belle: Just hanging out with Meems.
Shawn-D: Belle, this party's in a couple hours. You better start doing your hair. What are you going to do, like, chopsticks or the purple streaks or...
Belle: You know, just for making fun of me, I'm not going to tell you.
Shawn-D: You'll look great. You always do.
Shawn-D: So are you going to ride with your folks over there or are we still going to be going together?
Belle: I don't know, Shawn. You tell me. Are we still going together?
Shawn-D: Yeah. What time do I pick you up?
Brady: I know that Chloe's a nice girl, Philip -- too nice to keep getting hurt over and over again by you. So, like I said, it's over. Move on.
Philip: Don't sweat it. She hates my guts anyway.
Brady: Yeah, Philip, and by the way, I was really easy on you today. You're young. You make mistakes, but if I ever find out that you've hurt Chloe again, I will hunt you down like a dog, family or no family.
Philip: Chloe said she never wanted to see me again. So why would Brady come looking for me, warning me not to talk to her? Maybe she does want to see me. Maybe I still have a chance.
Chloe: Well, I guess if Brady's going to be there, it won't be too boring, but I'm really not good company right now.
Nancy: Honey, this party is just what you need.
Chloe: I don't know.
Nancy: Well, I'm not going to leave you here alone, the way you're feeling. [ Fake sigh] Oh, I guess I just won't go either. Now are you really going to make me miss the swankiest event of the year?
Chloe: Far be it from me.
Nancy: Then we're on.
Chloe: I'm just going to go look through my closet for a dress. Oh, Nancy, thanks for the talk. It really helped.
Lexie: Rolf, whatever wild ideas you have about dealing with Barb, forget them, okay? I need you to concentrate on your plan for Hope. With any luck, Barb won't show up.. I mean, it's not like the queen of spandex would actually fit in at an a-list social gathering.
Rolf: Alexandra, I implore you to just focus on the party. Let me handle Hope and Barb. I can take care of those two women with both hands tied behind my back. Figuratively speaking, hmm?
Lexie: You really don't mind getting your hands dirty.
Rolf: It was a source of great pride to me that your father's hands were always clean, as yours will be tonight. Just please remain calm.
Lexie: Well, that's a pretty tall order. I mean, John will be watching every move, not to mention Abe who's still suspicious about me giving this party at all. Rolf, I'll already be anxious about Hope. If Barb shows up, I just might lose it.
Rolf: No. No! DiMeras never lose, and you are a true DiMera -- your father's daughter. Please remember that.
Lexie: Yeah. Right. Thank you. I will. I'll make my father proud of me tonight.
Hope: Stop it. We're going to a party tonight at Abe and Lexie's. They're our friends. John, nothing is going to happen tonight. Okay? I'm going home. And you're invited.
Bo: If that means what I think it means, we're outta here. Hey, later, Pop.
Shawn: Bo, your mom bought a dress for the grand occasion.
Shawn: So you want to make sure that you notice.
Bo: All right. Will do.
Hope: I'll see you at the party.
John: I want you to listen to me, Hope. Can't you hear me? It's happening tonight. I can feel it.
