Shawn-D: How am I going to get through this?
Belle: With me.
Rolf: We're, uh... we're now looking at chromosome 21, yes? I'd like to see the results for, uh, band p-11. Um, here -- the midpoint should be 9534558.
Rex: Yes, sir.
Rolf: Mm. Oh, Cassie, Cassie, you're just not concentrating.
Cassie: How can I, professor? My friend's in trouble.
Rex: Did you read the newspaper headlines this morning, professor? It says Shawn's mother's dead and his father's in jail.
Rolf: Mm. Well, it's -- it's regrettable, but be that as it may, we're not here to solve Shawn Brady's problems.
[Thinking] You are here to help Tony DiMera, and it's my job to make sure you stay on track.
Cassie: Can't we just make it up next session? Last week, you let us have the afternoon off.
Rolf: Oh, very well, if you help me complete one more experiment.
Rolf: It's very important.
Cassie: No, anything but that.
Brady: Okay, well, I'll tell you what. Let me talk it over with my friend, and I'll get back to you. Thank you.
Chloe: So what's the story? Are we marooned?
Brady: Well, Chloe, you and I are poised on the horns of a dilemma, and since I know you're a woman who likes to be in charge of her own destiny, I'm going to let you decide.
Ben: Look... I don't know who you are or why you were chasing me, but you got to help me, please.
Craig: Just give me one good reason why I should.
Marlena: It's right here. Look, it's right --
John: All right, I believe you.
Marlena: John, moments ago, that was a painting of me.
John: Yeah. DiMera mind games. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they weren't watching us right now.
[Distant door closes]
Marlena: [Gasps] What was that?
John: I don't know. Stay right here. I'll check it out. Stay right here.
John: I didn't see anyone, but I don't think we're alone. Doc? Doc. DiMera. So what the hell have you done with my wife?
Marlena: Oh, my gosh, I'm trapped. John?! John?!
Brady: The car rental company towed the jeep this morning, but they couldn't call us until now because the phone lines were down.
Brady: And now, we have three options. One, they can pick us up here and take us to the mountain view lodge. Two, they can drive us to the airport, where we can catch the next flight to Los Angeles, or three -- did you want to hear the third option?
Chloe: Wow. So many choices. Sure.
Brady: Third option is we can stay right here.
Chloe: Okay, uh, let's weigh our options, the pros and cons.
Brady: Good idea.
Chloe: Well, if we go to the lodge, there'll be a restaurant, a Jacuzzi, a sauna.
Brady: True, but there's going to be lots of people there.
Chloe: Right. And if we go to Los Angeles...
Brady: We could visit the Dorothy Chandler pavilion, possibly meet Placido Domingo.
Chloe: Ooh, so tempting.
Brady: Is that your choice?
Chloe: Let's not be hasty. Los Angeles does sound interesting, but if we do go there...
Brady: There's going to be lots and lots of people. Whereas here...
Chloe: We have fabulous scenery, we can explore, we can enjoy this cabin.
Brady: And, you know, our friend did tell to make ourselves at home.
Chloe: And what's more, there are no other people.
Brady: So what's it going to be?
Ben: Look... I don't have a -- a lot of money, but... if you help me out, it's all yours.
Craig: Nice try.
Ben: I see you're wearing a wedding ring, too. Well, then you know what it's like to have somebody counting on you. My wife -- she's a very loving woman. She's completely innocent of all of this. She's -- she's a victim, really.
Craig: Yeah? My wife is a victim, too.
Craig: That's why I can't let you go.
Tony: Marlena? I haven't seen her. But before you get all snarly and protective, perhaps you'd like to explain to me what the hell you're doing here.
John: Well, maybe I could ask you the same thing. What are you doing, following us around?
Tony: Following you? This is my house, my island, bequeathed to me by my father. I don't remember inviting you here. You're trespassing, so why don't you collect your wife and just leave?
John: How am I supposed to collect my wife if I don't know where she is?
Tony: Oh. Lost her again. My, my, aren't we careless?
John: I know you have her, and now you're going to go get her, and you're going to bring her back to me right now.
Marlena: All right, there's got to be a way out of here. Just stay cool. There's got to be something here. There's got to be something here somewhere. No! No!
Cassie: You can't make me.
Rex: What's the matter?
Cassie: I won't do any more work today. I told you, I need to see Shawn.
Rolf: Now, Cassie, please, no tantrums.
Cassie: Friends are more important to me than homework.
Rolf: May I remind you, Cassie, you came to me recently begging for my help. You wanted to know who you are and where you come from. I'm willing to assist you in finding those answers, but, uh, how can I be successful if you refuse to cooperate?
Rex: Dr. Putnam has a point.
Cassie: Shawn is in trouble. He didn't come back to the Hartley house last night.
Rex: You know, there isn't a whole lot we can do to help him. We might as well finish the assignment here. We can always go look for him later.
Rolf: Well said.
Rex: What's that?
Rolf: Just something which will help you to concentrate.
Rex: Like dr. Marlena's hypnosis?
Rolf: Exactly, but it's only going to work if you trust me. Do you?
Rex: Yes, sir.
Cassie: I trust you.
Rolf: [Thinking] The programming has taken hold. This should override any interference from Shawn Brady and Belle Black. Now if, uh, if you'll resume work at your computer...
Cassie: Stop it.
Cassie: I won't do this. I told you, I need to be with Shawn. He's having a terrible time, and Rex and I should be there for him.
Rex: Please, sir, it's just no use. We have to leave.
Rolf: Oh, very well.
Rex: We'll, uh, we'll make it up to you next time.
Rolf: Well, go on, then. The twins are far too attached to young Shawn and Belle. I will not let Stefano's legacy project be derailed by the children of his enemies.
Shawn-D: You're the best, but I feel like I have been asking too much of you these days.
Belle: You didn't ask. I volunteered.
Shawn-D: I mean, you -- you should be studying for your tests, you have a paper to write. You shouldn't be hanging here with me.
Belle: I have a book upstairs. Shawn, if I need to study, I will. Don't worry about it.
Shawn-D: Not to mention I've been acting like a jerk lately.
Belle: You're allowed.
Shawn-D: How about the other night at the beach, huh? I said some really stupid things.
Belle: Stop apologizing.
Shawn-D: So, um, how's Zack? Is he still fussing?
Belle: Nope. He's upstairs eating bread pudding with your grandmother.
Shawn-D: Bread pudding?
Belle: Don't worry. I saved you some.
Shawn-D: Hey, thank you, but I-I can't eat.
Belle: Yes, you can, and it wouldn't hurt for you to rest.
Shawn-D: Well, I can't rest, either. Every time I close my eyes, I see my mother's face.
Shawn-D: I don't know what I would do if you weren't here.
Belle: Hey. I am here as long as you need me.
Shawn-D: I don't know how to thank you.
Belle: I know that you'd do the same for me because that's what loving someone's all about.
Ben: Oh, no. Oh, God, no, no!
Craig: Hey, will you just settle down and be still? If you want me to help, you got to be still.
Ben: Help me?
Craig: Okay, if this trap snags a bone, you're going to have to go to the hospital.
Ben: No, no. No hospital, no.
Craig: So then do what I say.
Craig: All right. All right, take it easy. Look... all right, what -- what you're going to have to do is on the count of 3, you're going to have to lift your leg and pull it out, okay?
Ben: I'm not sure I can.
Craig: You're going to have to do it because it's our only shot. Now, on the count of 3. Ready? 1... 2... 3.
Craig: Oh, man.
Ben: You're a doctor?
Craig: Yeah, this is your lucky day.
Ben: I am, too... a doctor.
Craig: I know who you are, Frederick Sykes.
Craig: I know all about you and your dirty little secrets.
Ben: Who are you? What do you want from me?
John: I'm only going to say this one more time -- what'd you do with my wife?
Tony: Not a bloody thing. I arrived here a second before you did. The room was empty.
Tony: Well, she couldn't have gotten too far. Perhaps she went out for a breath of fresh air. Come, I'll help you find her.
John: No, you had your chance. I'll find her myself. Just stay where you are. Doc!
Tony: I'm not going anywhere, I assure you -- not until I discover the secret of this island.
Marlena: [Grunting] Well, whoever hid this room away didn't want anybody to find it.
Brady: Well, my friend and I decided to stay right here. Mm-hmm. Well, listen, thank you for all your help. I really appreciate it. Okay, take care. It is done. 48 hours in our own private, secluded cabin in the wilderness. Is mademoiselle pleased with her decision?
Chloe: Sure. Are you?
Brady: Yes, definitely.
Chloe: Maybe I should call Nancy so she doesn't start to worry.
Brady: Good idea. You can use the house phone. It's open.
Chloe: Oh, good, it works.
Chloe: Nancy. Hi, it's me. I'm fine. How are you? Denver. Brady and I had to make an emergency landing because of some really bad weather. Yeah, anyway, we've decided to stay here, so I wanted to give you the number. Do you have a pen? Okay, it's 303-555-0199. And I promise you, we're fine. We're completely safe. Yes, I will talk to you later. All right, I'll -- I'll call you tonight. Bye, Nancy.
Brady: You didn't want to tell her that we're alone?
Chloe: What's the point? She'd just worry.
Brady: Yeah, you're probably right. Ha ha ha.
Chloe: Ah, it is so beautiful up here.
Brady: Yes, it is. What is it? You okay?
Chloe: Yeah. I was just thinking... when I was a little kid, I used to look out the window at all the other neighborhood kids playing. My adoptive mother wouldn't let me play with them because she said all I would get is a cold or get wet, and then I'd get sick, and she'd have to take care of me. A couple of times, I tried sneaking out, but there she was, hovering, worrying. It was like I was more fragile than all the other kids. What are you doing?
Brady: Better bundle up. We're going to go outside and play.
Ben: How come you're helping me? Why didn't you just let me bleed to death?
Craig: "If it is given to me to save a life, all thanks. It may also be within my power to take a life. This awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God."
Ben: The Hippocratic oath.
Craig: Yeah. Don't think I don't want to pull out every one of these stitches and let you die for what you did to my wife.
Tony: What did Rolf say? Use the phoenix to see. Use the phoenix to see.
John: That's far enough. Don't even think about it.
Marlena: Stefano. Whatever you've done in this hellhole... whatever it is, we'll bring it to light, I promise you that. Oh, no. Oh, no, it can't be.
[Knock on door]
Shawn-D: Who's that?
Belle: You know what? Hold on one second. Let me get rid of them.
Belle: Cassie, Rex.
Cassie: Hey. We came to see Shawn.
Rex: Yeah, we're worried about him.
Belle: That's really nice of you, but, uh, now is not a good time.
Rex: Okay, well, we didn't mean to interrupt. Come on, Cass, let's go.
Cassie: I'm not going anywhere until I see him.
Shawn-D: No, no, it's okay, you guys. Come on in.
Cassie: I saw the newspaper this morning.
Rex: We were working with professor Putnam. We couldn't concentrate.
Cassie: So we had to check on you, see how you're doing.
Shawn-D: Yeah, I-I appreciate it, but you really shouldn't cancel your time with professor Putnam.
Cassie: We need to be here for you, especially now.
Ben: What are you talking about? Look, there must be some misunderstanding.
Craig: The only one who misunderstood, Sykes, was you.
Ben: But I don't even know your wife, and now you're accusing me... of what? I mean, what did I do? What do you think that I did?
Craig: It's what I know you did. You raped her.
Tony: Oh, you are one for the books, you are, John. Not only are you wandering around my house, uninvited and unwelcome now you're barking orders at me? "Don't even think about it"?
John: Why don't you knock the games off? How about being straightforward for once in your life?
Tony: How about the hell getting off my property?
John: I see you've found it.
John: The DiMera crest.
Tony: Ah, yes, and behold.
John: So much for the new house of DiMera.
John: All that garbage you were spewing about being a changed man. All the lies and the intrigue -- you're Stefano all over again, picking up where he left off. That's why you came back to Salem, finishing the projects that he started so many years ago. I mean, that would explain why you're here on this island, wouldn't it?
Marlena: It does exist, but who painted it? How long has it been here?
Man's voice: Sleep, Marlena. Sleep...
Brady: I'm in the middle of nowhere in search of the northwest passa..... and joining me today, we have the world-famous opera singer Chloe Lane! Miss Lane, you have dined with princes, kings, dignitaries... how is it, for a woman of your sophistication, to be roughing it here in the great American wilderness?
Chloe: Oh, I love it! We had tree bark for breakfast.
Brady: Tree bark, of course!
Chloe: It makes me feel like singing.
Brady: Oh, brilliant! Bravo, Miss Lane! So tell us, have you found a way to the west?
Chloe: Oh, darling, let me let you in on a little secret. It's not so much the discovery as the quest itself. You must immerse in the search, enjoy every minute of it. Carpe diem, as an old friend once said.
Brady: An old friend. Does this old friend have a name?
Chloe: Why, yes. Brady Black, the explorer. But enough about him. Let's talk more about me. I am the diva here, after all.
Brady: Yes, you are. Please go on.
Chloe: Ah, the quest, yes, yes. I love the triumphs and the setbacks, the good days and the bad, the sunshine and the shows. Why, goodness, here comes one now.
Chloe: Ha ha ha!
Brady: You'd better run. I'm going to give you a head start. You better run. I'm coming after you.
Chloe: No! Aah!
Brady: Aah! You'd better run faster than that, Chloe!
Ben: You have got the wrong guy. Attack a woman -- never. Look, I have made some mistakes in my life, but I would never attack a woman.
Craig: Really? Why don't you think back? Think back about 18, 19 years ago when you hit on a young girl, you sweet-talked her, you kept filling her glass with wine, you took advantage of her...
Ben: Oh, this is crazy.
Craig: She screamed for you to stop, but you didn't listen, did you?
Ben: I don't know who you're talking ab--
Craig: Does the name Nancy Miller mean anything to you?
Tony: Well, not that I owe you an explanation, but I do hate to disappoint you, especially when you're so gung ho about putting a sinister spin on my every move. My reasons for coming here are rather mundane, actually. I just came here to check my inheritance -- my father's holdings are quite vast.
John: Why check it out now?
Tony: Actually, to be honest with you, I wanted to find out anything I could on the missing years of my life. Nuisance that -- I'm sure you understand the feeling. But enough about me. Tell me, what motivated you and your lovely wife to come to this little bit of paradise? Certainly your travel agent didn't tout you here.
John: Where's Marlena?
Tony: Ah. You haven't found her yet?
John: I've checked every room -- at least the ones I can find. This old fort is rigged with hidden passageways and secret catch holes. Mark my words -- I will tear this place apart, stone by stone, until I find her because I will not let you DiMera's ever harm her again. Do you understand my words?
Man's voice: Sleep, Marlena. Sleep...
Marlena: [Gasps] No. No. No, no, no, no, no, never again. What happened in this room?
Marlena: Was this mine? Did I sleep in this?
Ben: Nancy Miller? But it was so long ago, it's almost a blur now.
Craig: Not to her. It's never a blur to her.
Ben: It was a mistake. It was the worst mistake -- I was depressed. I'd been drinking. I didn't know what I was doing.
Craig: Damn it. Don't you dare make excuses now.
Ben: No, no. Of course not. No excuses. There are -- there are none.
Craig: The only reason I didn't let you bleed to death before is because of my stepdaughter. She's got leukemia, and she needs a bone marrow transplant.
Ben: Well, I'm very sorry to hear that, but what does that got to do with me?
Craig: Everything. You're her father.
Brady: [Groans] [Laughing]
Cassie: I keep thinking about your little brother. He must be so sad.
Shawn-D: He's -- he's too little to understand. He just keeps asking for his mom, and I don't know what to tell him. I just know that I have to take care of him and be strong for him.
Cassie: I wish there was something we could do. I know what it's like not to have a mother or a father, not to have any family. Rex and I can be your family. We can -- we can care for you like you cared for us when we first came to Salem. We'll take care of you. No matter what, we'll stand by you forever.
Marlena: No. Don't contaminate the evidence.
John: Your time is up. You tell me where my wife is, or I'm going to beat it out of you!
Tony: Hel-- help me.
Brady: Here you go. Hot chocolate.
Chloe: Thank you.
Chloe: Smells great.
Brady: You know, my dad used to make an amazing hot chocolate. Not from a mix, mind you. He used to melt chocolate bars. That was the best part about playing outside in the cold, knowing that I was going to have some of my dad's famous hot chocolate when I got inside. You okay? What is it?
Chloe: I was just thinking about my dad. Now that I know that he's out there, I can't stop wondering. If I go out of remission before my little sister is born, will I need his help? Where is he?
Ben: A daughter?
Craig: 18 years old.
Ben: It's not possible.
Craig: She lives here in Salem. She's been very sick this last year. Now, if you want to redeem yourself, in one small measure, now is your chance.
Ben: I would be more than willing to help, but there is no way I can be this girl's father.
Cassie: I'd do anything for you, Shawn.
Shawn-D: Thanks, I, um, I appreciate that.
Rex: If -- if, uh, we can help in any way, please just let us know. Just call, and we'll do whatever we can.
Belle: We will. Uh, thanks, but Shawn really needs his rest right now, so we'll give you a call later or tomorrow or something and let you know how he's doing.
Cassie: I don't want to go.
Rex: We have to, Cassie. Come on.
Belle: It was nice seeing you guys. Bye.
Rex: Come on.
Cassie: Shawn, please know that I'll be thinking about you. Bye.
Belle: Well, they really care about you.
Shawn-D: Well, I'm very lucky to have so many amazing people in my life, especially you.
Belle: I just want this to be over for you, Shawn.
Shawn: Well, I'm afraid it never will be.
Belle: I think you need some rest.
Shawn-D: Yeah. But, first, I think we better go rescue Zack from Grandpa before he starts singing...
Both: "Tura lura lura."
Belle: Let's go.
Marlena: My gosh. Can this be true?
Marlena: I've got to find John.
Tony: John. Help me, please.
John: Where's my wife?
Tony: I don't know. I told you, I swear, I don't know.
John: Too bad. You lose.
Tony: John! John! John, help! Help me, John!
