Marlena: Oh! So many happy times in this school. I can't believe it's all coming to an end. Where? Where?

John: There she is -- Salem High's salutatorian.

Brady: Hey. Ha ha ha.

Belle: I know.

Shawn: Excuse me. Belle. Listen, um...

Belle: Mimi, can you help me with my cap? It's kind of falling off.

Belle: I am not going to get through the next two hours if I have to sit next to Shawn. Ouch.

Mimi: Sorry.

Belle: Mimi, please trade places with me.

Mimi: And give up being next to Kevin?

Belle: I'm desperate.

Mimi: I thought you would feel better once you knew that Jan lied to Shawn.

Belle: Well, it's not news to me that Jan lied. Maybe Shawn wants to forget about this whole thing, but I can't -- not if I want to have respect for myself.

Mimi: Respect -- that's pretty huge.

Belle: Yeah, I know.

Mimi: So are you saying that it's -- it's over for good?

Belle: I can't forgive Shawn for not believing me.

Belle: So, yeah, I guess it is over... Forever.

Craig: Ah, our little girl.

Nancy: How are you feeling, honey? Is everything okay? Are you feel--

Chloe: Nancy, you are not to let anyone know I'm sick. Do you understand me?

Nancy: No, of course not. Not a word.

Craig: Okay.

Chloe: So, uh, did you get the results for the bone marrow test yet?

Craig: No, not yet, but I've got my pager with me.

Chloe: Okay, well, do me a favor -- if it goes off during my speech, don't come running up on stage, all right?

Craig: I won't.

Nancy: Honey, the only thing we're focused on today is your graduation. We are so proud of you.

Brady: Hey there. Dr. Wesley, Mrs. Wesley, how are you?

Craig: Hi, Brady. We're going to grab a seat, okay? Come on.

Chloe: Hi.

Brady: I just wanted to get a good look at the girl who beat out my sister for valedictorian. I'm kidding. Seriously, congratulations. We're all very happy for you.

Chloe: Thank you.

Philip: Hey. Getting lonely over there by myself. Chloe's my partner today.

Brady: Hey, Uncle Phil. What is this -- you an honor student? I think there's been some mistake.

Philip: Ha ha.

Brady: I saw your mom. I think she's looking for her little graduate.

Philip: She can wait.

Craig: Right. Come up. Here.

Nancy: No, I want to sit over there where I can take pictures.

Craig: The graduates sit over there, parents over here. Go. Up, up, up.

Nancy: I guess this is fine.

Sami: Hello, Kate.

Kate: Sami.

Jack: Speech, speech, valedictorian speech, keynote speaker -- now this guy's a big yawn. It's a good time to take a nap.

Jennifer: Why aren't you interviewing the graduates, Jack?

Jack: What are you doing here? Oh, that's right -- Shawn. You're just all family all the time, aren't you?

Jennifer: Stick to your assignment, Mr. Deveraux.

Jack: Yes, boss. Whatever you say, boss.

Marlena: Look at Belle with Mimi. Does she look happy to you?

Caprice: Miserable.

Marlena: Poor sweetie.

Shawn: Mom, dad.

Hope: Hey, honey.

Shawn: Hey.

Hope: Ooh, today's the big day.

Shawn: Yeah.

Bo: We're proud of you, sailor man.

Hope: Oh, we are so proud of you.

Shawn: Thanks, thanks.

Hope: Shawn, what's wrong?

Shawn: Oh, Belle's still mad at me. Listen, don't tell her folks about what happened with Jan, okay?

Bo: Why not?

Shawn: Because I only got to tell belle half of what happened. She didn't even want to hear that. She hates me.

Hope: Honey, I thought she would have been really --

Shawn: Yeah, yeah, well, you were wrong. We were all wrong. Basically, she can't believe that I took Jan's word over hers, and she's right. I mean, I totally screwed up, and... I wouldn't be surprised if she never forgave me. This day... It's supposed to be a turning point, you know? The first day of the best part of our lives. How did it go so wrong?

Hope: Oh, honey, come here. Come here.

Mimi: Are you sure you're going to be all right?

Belle: Yeah. I'm fine.

Brady: So you're really going to take this honor thing seriously, huh?

Philip: Yeah, you know it. You know it.

Belle: Excuse me, Brady. Ahem.

Brady: Belle. Hey.

Belle: Hi.

Brady: Come here.

Belle: So did you come to make fun of us about how dorky we look in these stupid caps and gowns?

Brady: Yeah, of course, but also to give you these.

Belle: Brady. They're beautiful. Thank you.

Brady: Belle? Are you okay?

Mr. Woods: Graduates, will you please get ready to get in line?

Hope: Honey, I know you didn't expect to feel this way at graduation.

Shawn: I can't believe I expected her to just forgive me. I mean, how could I have been so stupid?

Bo: You weren't stupid. You made a mistake.

Shawn: I hated the fact that she thought I slept with Jan, and I just wanted her to know the truth, but she's just going to think it's just another thing I lied to her about. She's not going to understand.

Bo: You don't know that.

Hope: Honey, belle takes after her mom and her dad, and believe me, they have plenty of things they have forgiven each other for.

Bo: Your mom and me -- same thing. Sorry. With enough love, you just get rid of the bad things.

Roman: Hey! There they are.

Hope: Hey, Roman.

Shawn: Uncle Roman.

Roman: Nephew. What do you say, man?

Shawn: Good to see you.

Roman: Congratulations, buddy. Ha ha ha.

Shawn: Hey! Oh, yeah.

Shawn: Well, thanks for coming.

Caroline: Are you kidding? Would we miss this for the world, huh?

Shawn, listen, your Aunt Maggie and your uncle Mickey, they send their congratulations.

Shawn: Oh, cool, cool. I did it.

Shawn: You did it is right. Ha ha ha.

Roman: I got a cop outside Mickey and Maggie's house.

Hope: You really think that's necessary?

Roman: As long as they're babysitting Zack and Stefano's still a threat.

Bo: Which he is.

Hope: You're right, but I hate it. I hate it.

Doug: There he is -- Shawn-Douglas! Our grandson!

Shawn: Hi.

Julie: Hi, darling.

Doug: Whoa, what a day, huh? Stand right there. Stand right there. Congratulations on a job well done, kiddo.

Julie: Oh, a job well done, indeed, and, Bo, my darling, would you please put this in the graduate's checking account?

Hope: Oh, my -- hey, I'll take this.

Bo: You didn't have to do that.

Doug: Don't mess with proud grandparents.

Shawn: Isn't it a great day for our children and our grandchildren, eh? Ha ha ha ha. Oh.

Doug: What a day.

John: Right there...

Belle: Hello.

Marlena: Oh, honey, hi. Oh, what a day!

Belle: Could you hold these for me?

John: I got them, I got them. You look beautiful, Isabella.

Belle: Thanks, dad.

Marlena: And I brought your yearbook.

Belle: You did?

Marlena: Well, there were still some people that hadn't signed, and I thought you might want them to.

Belle: Yeah.

Belle: Oh, Mom, nothing is how I thought it would be.

Marlena: Oh, honey.

Caprice: Watch your cap, ma Belle.

Belle: Oh, can you fix my cap?

Caprice: It's perfect.

Belle: Thank you.

Philip: Hey, Belle.

Belle: Philip!

Philip: Can you believe it? In a couple of hours, we're going to be outta here.

Belle: Oh, I know.

Mimi: Perez and Woods are going to flip if I don't get in line.

Mrs. Lockhart: Wait, I got to hug Belle.

Belle: Oh!

Mrs. Lockhart: We're so proud of you.

Belle: Thank you.

Marlena: Oh, Mimi, we are so proud of you, too.

Mimi: I'm just glad Belle and I made it through 13 years of school, and we're still best buds. Rock.

Belle: Whoo!

Philip: Hey, what about me?

Belle: What about you, Philip?

Mimi: You are such a whiner.

Belle: Come on. Bye, we'll see you later.

John: Bye, guys.

Marlena: We love you.

Mr. Woods: Please, places for the processional.

["Pomp and Circumstance" playing]

Nancy: Hi, Chloe!

Brady: Belle! Belle!

Hope: Hey, Shawn! Shawn!

Man: Welcome to the commencement ceremony for Salem High School's class of 2002.

Man: All right, settle down. Settle down, people. We have a long way to go before I put those diplomas in your hands.

All: [Groan]

Man: So with that in mind, I give you Mr. Malcolm woods, your senior class adviser and the only teacher ever to win Salem high's most popular teacher award two years in a row.

All: [Cheering]

Mr. Woods: Thank you, Principal Cohen. This class has weathered some challenges over the past year. You've shown yourselves to be brave and honorable young people. I know your families and friends join me in congratulating you on your awesome achievements in the last four years. Way to go, class of 2002.

Mr. Woods: It is with great pride that I introduce your class salutatorian Belle Black.

All: [Cheering]

Belle: Thanks. Thank you, Mr. Woods. You've always come through for me... For all of us. Right, everybody?

Belle: We've learned a lot of lessons these last four years, and not all of them have been in class. Through habitat for humanity, we learned how to put a roof on a house, or in my case, how to hammer a nail. I see you laughing, Dad. We also learned that a house can give people more than just shelter. It gives them dignity. Thanks to Mr. Woods and Ms. Perez, we learned about ecology and how to take care of the world on our trip last summer to Puerto Rico, and a lot of us learned that we can be friends with people we usually don't hang out with. You know, there are a lot of graduation traditions, like the yearbook, which is amazing this year. So let's hear it for the yearbook staff, who has worked so hard on this for months.

Belle: The section on senior class wills -- that's definitely my favorite part. I don't know if all of you parents have seen those pages yet, but it's where the seniors leave things to their fellow classmates so that they can remember them after they're gone. Mimi Lockhart tried to bequeath her toilet brush, but nobody wanted it.

All: [Laugh]

Belle: On a more serious note, if I could say anything to the junior class, it would be enjoy your senior year. Don't take one minute of it for granted, and be good to your friends, because you will be going your separate ways all too soon. Your senior year may not turn out exactly like you planned it, but make the best of it. You know, has anyone noticed that after years of telling us we're too young, all of a sudden, everyone's saying that we're grown up? They say, "Go to college, get a job, you're ready to be on your own." I think we are ready. All of the love, attention, guidance, and just plain cheerleading from our parents and teachers have gotten us to the place where we're ready. No more blaming other people if we fail. It's time to step up and accept the consequences of our own actions. We can do it, Class of 2002. We're ready to take on the world. Thank you.

Mr. Woods: This year's valedictorian is a young woman who transferred to our school during her sophomore year and quickly became one of Salem High's top students. Please welcome Ms. Chloe Lane.

Craig: [Whistling]

Jason: Ghoul --

Susan: Stop it.

Chloe: Thank you, Mr. Woods. And thank you for your patience with me these past few years. I know that I may have not had any trouble with my schoolwork, but I've certainly had other challenges. I couldn't have gotten through it all without the support of the Salem High staff and my friends. There were times over the last three years where I wanted to run away. Life just seemed too hard, and I know that I wasn't the only one. Now I see that every difficult experience contributed to a greater understanding of who I am as a person and where I want to go from here. That's what today is all about. Commencement -- leaving one phase of our lives and moving into another. And even if we know where we're going to college or where we'll be working next year, the future is still unknown, and that can be scary. Some of us will be leaving Salem, which means leaving our friends and families behind. And even those of us who choose to stay close to home will soon realize that the world around us looks very different. We won't be coming into Salem High every day and getting books out of our lockers, making fun of the cafeteria food, or complaining about having too much homework. We move into a world that is new and unfamiliar. The next time that we see some of our fellow students may be at a high school reunion where, according to statistics, a few of us will be bald and some of us will have gained a few pounds. Some classmates may come back famous or infamous... And some may leave this earth before their time. But all of that is unknown today, and that's the way that it should be. We move forward, not knowing what lies ahead, and yet, we must seize the day. We must move into the future with courage and the determination to make our mark. To quote one of my favorite poems -- "gather ye rosebuds while ye may." In other words, this is our moment. Let's take it. Don't let anything stand in your way. Let's make the most of the time that we have before it gets taken away.

Nancy: Chloe?

Chloe: Thank you. I'll stop preaching now. There's just one more thing before I leave the stage. Like most teenagers, there are times when I have trouble saying what I really mean. It isn't always easy to find the right words to tell someone how I feel. So I let music do it for me. And it doesn't have to be Puccini or Verdi. It can be a song from a Broadway show or the latest hit on the radio. You know the old expression "they're playing our song"? Well, we voted to pick a song for the Class of 2002, so that when we're all 80 years old and this song comes on some golden oldies station, it'll bring back memories of this time and place in our lives when we were teenagers together at Salem High.

[Music playing]

All: [Cheering]

And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives

where we're gonna be when we turn 25

I keep thinking times will never change

keep on thinking things will always be the same

but when we leave this year we won't be coming back

no more hanging out 'cause we're on a different track

and if you got something that you need to say

you better say it right now 'cause you don't have another day

this is how it feels as we go on we remember all the times we had together

and as our lives change come whatever

we will still be friends forever

as we go on we remember all the times we had together

and as our lives change come whatever

Shawn: I love you.

Belle: I love you, too.

Friends forever so if we get the big jobs and we make the big money

when we look back now will our jokes still be funny?

Will we still remember everything we learned in school?

Still be trying to break every single rule?

Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?

Can we ever find a job that won't interfere with a tan?

I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye

keep on thinking it's a time to fly ooh

and this is how it feels as we go on we remember

all the times we had together

and as our lives change come whatever

we will still be friends forever

la, la, la

la, la, la, la

la, la, la

la, la, la, la

la, la, la

la, la, la, la

yeah, yeah, yeah

la, la, la

la, la, la, la

la, la, la

la, la, la, la

we will still be friends forever

will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?

Can we survive it out there? Can we make it somehow?

I guess I thought that this would never end

and suddenly it's like we're women and men

will the past be a shadow that will follow us 'round?

Will these memories fade when I leave this town?

I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye

keep on thinking it's a time to fly

as we go on we remember all the times we had together

and as our lives change come whatever

we will still be friends forever

as we go on we remember

all the times we had together

and as our lives change come whatever

we will still be friends forever

as we go on we remember

all the times we had together

and as our lives change come whatever

we will still be friends forever

All: [Cheering]

Ms. Perez: Thank you. For those of you who are following in your programs, there's been a last-minute change. Councilman Scott was unable to be our keynote speaker today. Instead, I am happy to introduce a Salem High School graduate, the new editor-in-chief of the "Salem Spectator," Miss Jennifer Horton.

All: [Cheering]

Jennifer: Thank you. Thank you very much. That's very sweet. The first thing I want to say is that every graduate in this auditorium is so far ahead of where I was at their age. Seriously, it's true. I-I really struggled through high school, and I ended up right there in summer school. Isn't that right, gram? But the thing is I never got to wear a cap and a gown and to have a really cool ceremony like this. So I know all of you -- you know, you may feel really silly because you're dressed like this, but you have to remember, though, this is all part of the tradition. It is a symbol of everything that you have accomplished in the last four years, all of the hard work that has got you to this very moment -- this moment where you start thinking about your future. And I know how much that word frightened me when I was your age, but the thing is, you kids, you have so much more pressure than my generation did. I mean, you have pressure to have fabulous jobs, make piles of money, have a huge house, a fancy car, and you know what? All of that is really fine, but the one thing that I want you to remember is that you must always love each other and look out for each other.

Sami: [Whispering] Jack, shouldn't you be taking notes?

Jack: Shh!

Jennifer: Now, I know that all of you had to complete a unit of community service in order to graduate, and I just hope that that experience was satisfying enough that you will want to continue helping others even when it's not for credit. So as each of you go out into the world hoping to make it, I want to encourage you to try to make the world a better place. And I'm not talking about donating millions of dollars, but, I mean, if you have millions of dollars, you should, by all means, donate some of it. But I believe that there are little things that you can do every day. You can work at a food pantry, you can join the PTA the local school board, you can babysit your neighbor's kids, go grocery shopping for an elderly friend. I-I want you to know how important family is to me, and I encourage all of you to create a family in whatever way you define that, because I promise you, there is no greater joy than to love and take care of the people in your family. And for some of us, that means having children and grandchildren. But I believe that everyone that you touch in your life becomes part of your family, even if it's only for a moment, and I really believe that every single day you have the opportunity to change a person's life. So right now, I would like all of us to take a moment of silence to honor the people that we love and for those who can't be here with us right now.

Jennifer: Thank you. Now, I have been told that a commencement speech is not complete without a quotation. Ralph Waldo Emerson may have been born in another century, but I believe that his words are timeless and timely for us here today, so I quote. "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." Thank you. Bathroom specialist, bring it on!

Mr. Woods: And our honor students -- those seniors whose grade point averages placed them in the top 5% of their class. Would the following students please stand as I read your names? Susan Adamson. Isabella Black. Philip Kiriakis.

Mr. Woods: Kevin Lambert.

Mr. Woods: Chloe Lane.

Mr. Woods: Our first diploma goes to Susan Adamson.

Mr. Woods: Isabella Black.

Philip: Hey. I've got something for you, and I know you'll think it's too late for this, but I know it's not.

Mr. Woods: Ty Bopel.

Philip: Actually, it's the second time I've tried to give you this. I believe what I carved in that tree, Chloe. Forever. That's how long our love is going to last. Will you keep the necklace for me?

Mr. Woods: Phillip Booker.

Philip: Please? Please?

Mr. Woods: Robert Bradnick.

Mr. Woods: Roger bloomer.

Mr. Woods: Mckenzie Boyden. Shawn-Douglas Brady.

Mr. Woods: Philip Kiriakis.

Mrs. Spears: I didn't miss it, did I?

Hope: No, you didn't.

Mr. Woods: Kevin Lambert.

Mimi: Whoo!

Mr. Woods: Chloe Lane.

Craig: Whoo-hoo!

Nancy: Yay! Ha ha ha! Yay! Yay! Whoo!

Mr. Woods: Well, students, it's been quite a journey from your first day at Salem High School to this moment...

Kevin: I can't wait for the last blast tonight.

Mimi: Why? I'm not even allowed to dance with you.

Kevin: You'll still have fun. Trust me.

Mimi: You guys, remember, tonight's our last chance to get Belle and Shawn back together.

Mr. Woods: As fondly as we remember you. Be good to yourselves, be good to each other, and go forth and lead productive lives. You made it, people.

All: [Cheering]

Principal Cohen: Congratulations to all our graduates!

Ms. Perez: All right, graduates, now, please move your tassels from the right to the left.

All: [Cheering]

Philip: Hey, we're almost there!

Mr. Woods: I give you the Salem High School Class of 2002.

Philip: Goodbye, Salem High!
