Bo: There we go. There's your goalpost. Hey.

Hope: Hey.

Bo: Hey.

Hope: Hey, honey.

Bo: How'd your foundation meeting go?

Hope: Good. Really good. It's fun giving away money. It's going to be hard to choose. There's so many great proposals here. Jennifer took home a stack just as big.

Bo: Do you think the Horton foundation could subsidize this here building project? I mean, the tiny man is doing great. He's going places.

Hope: Oh, don't I know it? That is very cool, honey. What are you building here, huh? Is it a soccer field?

Bo: No, ma, it's a football stadium. Can't you see the goalposts?

Hope: I'm sorry.

Bo: Hey, you know something, tiny man? Once upon a time, your mom was a pretty good tight end.

Hope: What do you mean "once upon a time"?

Bo: Well, let's see if you still got it. Go out for a long one.

Hope: Oh, I still got it!

[ Telephone rings ]

Hope: Oh, I got it!

Bo: Let's go tackle her!

Hope: Wait a second. Hello? Hey, Shane. Shane thanks for calling back. What have you got?

******************************************************************************************************************************************

Philip: Hey. What's with the backpack? It's July.

Cassie: It's picnic stuff.

Philip: Yeah, you got anything good?

Cassie: Nothing I'd share with you. Where's your date?

Philip: I don't have one. Maybe by the next bicentennial.

Cassie: Oh, don't look at me.

Philip: So, what's really in that bag?  Come on, what do you got to hide? I'm not the police.

Cassie: No, you're a marine. What do you think I have -- drugs or something?

Philip: Do you?

***************************************************************************************************************************

(Mimiís back flash)

Mimi: What is this, Rex?

Rex: It's a rough diamond.

Mimi: Rough? As in... before it's been, what, polished?

Rex: Before it's cut and shaped into a thing of beauty like you.

Mimi: You mean I'm a diamond in the rough?

Rex: No. I'm trying to tell you that you're beautiful, Mimi.

Mimi: Rex, what is it?

Rex: It's gone!

Mimi: What's gone?

Rex: My laser! All the work I did!

Rex: Mimi. Mimi. Hey. I've been looking for you.

Mimi: Really? You actually noticed I wasn't there anymore? I'm amazed.

Rex: Why did you leave? Look, never mind. I know why. I was --

Mimi: You were in your own angry world. One minute, you were totally with me, being all romantic and wonderful. And the next, it was, like, I didn't exist. I've just -- I can't stand that. I can't take it anymore.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Man: Are you going to be saying a few words tonight for that bicentennial celebration?

Victor: No. My grandson and my wife requested my presence. I look forward to seeing the changes that are afoot at the Blue Note.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Brady: Nicole. Manny just said you read him the riot act.

Nicole: Well, Manny just tried to seat the ex-vice mayor and his wife at this table, and I told him I don't care if Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt walked through that door. We are celebrating this town's bicentennial, which means this table is reserved for the most important person in Salem, who also happens to own this joint. That's Victor, and don't tell me I'm wrong.

Brady: No, no. I'm sure granddad will be very happy to see everything you've done. Thank you.

Nicole: What are you thanking me for?

Brady: For making an effort, both here and with my grandfather.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Larry: [ Wolf whistle ]

Larry: No worries, little chickadee. You're not a sitting duck.

Nicole: Yes. In a way, I am. Don't whistle at me again.

Larry: Hey, look, I'm the one calling the shots here, okay? And speaking of shots, where's hubby dearest?

Nicole: He's on his way.

Larry: Well, good. You know, because I've been debating as to whether I should make it quick and clean -- you know, no margin of error -- or should I just let him bleed like the stuck pig he is and suffer the way he deserves? What do you think?

Nicole: Um... clean. Please. I don't want to get blood all over my hands.

Larry: Okay. But in case my aim isn't dead-on, all right, you're my primary backup. I want you to impede the rescue workers, the cops, everybody, until you've sent Victor straight to hell.

Nicole: I guess we're all going to wind up there someday.

Brady: Nicole. You okay?

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Nicole: I-I just, uh, needed to get some air. It's hot inside. Maybe we should turn down the thermostat.

Brady: Nicole, your hands are shaking.

Nicole: Brady, it's just that I've never done anything like this before.

Brady: What, plan a party? You used to be a corporate shark. This should be nothing for you.

Nicole: Yeah.

Brady: All right. So are you going to come inside?

Nicole: In a minute, yeah

Brady: And you're sure you're okay?

Nicole: Uh-huh.

Brady: All right. I'll see you inside.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Larry: Oh, I see how it is. Withhold sexual favors from me, but...ol' Vicís little grandson is getting plenty, isn't he?

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Cassie: Why should I tell you anything? It's not like you care.

Philip: Why do you think I sat down here? Cassie, look, I'm sorry I upset you about that whole Echelon thing.

Cassie: Oh, it doesn't even matter. My dad sold the club to make sure that I couldn't work there.

Philip: Good.

Cassie: Good. Great. What am I supposed to do with the rest of my summer?

Philip: I don't know. Hang out.

Cassie: With who? Not you.

Philip: Well, you're not going to make any nice friends at Echelon.

Cassie: How would you know that? It's a gentlemen's club. They wouldn't even let you in there.

Philip: "Gentlemen's club." Are you serious? Wow, you are serious. Okay, Cassie, do you have any idea how you deserve to have a guy treat you?

Cassie: Well, people always seem to tell me that I'm going to get what I deserve. I just never really think that's anything nice.

Philip: Don't listen to them. Hey, you are way too special, and you're too innocent to be working at a place like that.

Cassie: Innocent? Really? Ha ha ha ha.

Philip: Look, I know you don't come off that way at first. In fact, I think you work really hard to get people to think just the opposite. But I think once someone gets to know you, that --

Cassie: Philip. You don't know me.

Philip: Well, you don't know me, either. I can change. Unless you're going to hold it against me forever that I didn't pick you on "love is blind."

Cassie: You're Belle's friend. She hates me.

Philip: Oh, Belle does not hate you. Okay, maybe you're not her favorite person, but, um, come on, Belle doesn't hate anyone. And she tried to be your friend, remember? You pushed her away. Now, are you going to do that to every person that you meet, too?

Cassie: I just think that it's far less complicated if I stick with Roger.

Philip: Who?

Cassie: Do you really want to know what I'm hiding from you?

Philip: Yeah.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Rex: No, no, wait, wait. Mimi, please, listen. When I got angry before, it was about the laser, all right? It had nothing to do with you.

Mimi: But I was there -- don't you see -- wanting to help you. But you wouldn't even look at me. You wouldn't talk to me. Look, I know you don't think I'm very smart --

R: : That's not true.

Mimi: Fine. Well, I -- I don't think I'm very smart, okay, so I guess I'm overly sensitive to being treated like I'm an idiot or like I don't matter or like I don't know how to deal with the ups and downs of life, and I've been doing pretty okay for the last 19 years, and you...

Rex: Havenít.

Mimi: Look, I just want us to be there for each other, you know? But you won't let me.

Rex: You're always there for me.

Mimi: Not in the way that you need me. You won't let me be. You don't listen to me, Rex. You don't respect me.

Rex: I do. And you're right. There is something wrong with me. Look, remember when john black thought I was programmed to be a killer?

Mimi: You're not a killer, Rex.

Rex: No, I don't think I am. I just -- I can't stand all the not knowing. Okay, and I know it's too much to ask of you to have to hold me together and be my lifeline, but... you're all I've got, Mimi. And if I lost you... I don't want to make you miserable. I want to make you happy. So, please, just tell me what you want. Do you want me to go away?

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Hope: Well, thank you so much, Shane. Yeah, you take care. We'll talk to you soon, okay? Bye. Well, we wanted in on the investigation, right?

Bo: Right. So you just called Shane up and asked for the I.S.A. report?

Hope: Hey, I figured we should go straight to the horse's mouth.

Bo: And they gave it to you.

Hope: Haven't we earned his trust?

Bo: Good point.

Hope: Unfortunately, the lab still hasn't been able to identify all the components of Mayaís goop.

Bo: You know, we should come up with a more scientific name than "goop."

Hope: All right. Let's think about that for a minute.

Bo: All right. We will psychically guess what the I.S.A. crime lab couldn't work out... with physical analysis.

Hope: Are you giving up?

Bo: No way.

Hope: Good. Because there is a scientific method here.

Bo: All right.

Hope: You start with a hypothesis, and you work to prove it.

Bo: Okay.

Hope: Okay. So Maya deals in antiques, right?

Bo: Right.

Hope: So what kind of a compound would revolutionize her work?

Bo: Carbon.

Hope: Carbon. You're better at this than you thought.

Bo: Well, it kinda makes sense. You got carbon dating. Say you had this. You put carbon goop all over it, and for all anybody knows, it's a priceless antique.

Hope: Huh.

Bo: What do you think?

Hope: Let me think... diamonds are made of carbon.

Bo: Mm-hmm.

Hope: That's Mayaís other line of work.

Bo: There you go. We figured it out. We're geniuses.

Hope: Oh, stop it don't laugh, Brady. Who knows? Maybe we have.

Bo: Yeah, right.

Hope: I have to say, though, if I was going to invent a magical mystery compound that would make me rich...

Bo: Right.

Hope: It certainly wouldn't be to make things look older. Too bad Maya couldn't have discovered the fountain of youth.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Nicole: No. Brady isn't getting any. He's too in love with himself to need anyone.

Larry: Well, then you two are a match made in heaven, honey. Except you did seem to care when he got shot at by the pool, didn't you?

Nicole: I felt responsible.

Larry: Well, you were responsible.

Nicole: Just hit the right target tonight.

Larry: You better show me a payment in advance. And I assure you, after old Vic, you feel like you've died and gone to heaven.

Nicole: I'm going to go inside and call home, make sure Victor's on his way.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Brady: Kinda slow tonight, isn't it?

Man: Yeah, it usually is when they got the fireworks in the park. We should probably do pretty good after.

Brady: Well, hopefully. We got a lot of good talent lined up tonight.

Man: Yeah.

Brady: Let me ask you something. You have any problems with Nicole?

Man: Nicole? Nah. She's all bark, no bite.

Nicole: Uh, usually, when they compare me to a dog, they just come right out and use the "b" word.

Man: Did I say "no bite"?

Nicole: Want to see my fangs?

Man: Yeah. Later.

Brady: Come here. Don't you think Victor would be a little upset to see how friendly you've gotten with the staff?

Nicole: I don't flirt with them. I'm a married woman.

Brady: Speaking of which, Nicole, if you want to get out of here and go watch the fireworks with your husband --

Nicole: No, no. It's not Victor's scene. It'll be mobbed. But thank you. It'll be a perfect night right here.

Brady: Good.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Man: I apologize for the delay.

Victor: Well, you can't help the detour. I guess a lot of people are out celebrating tonight. And since we've hit traffic, why don't you call Henri? Have him, uh, deliver lilies to my wife at the Blue Note immediately.

Man: Of course, sir.

Victor: I want to make sure this is a night that stays in my wife's memory for a very long time.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Mimi: I don't want you to go away, Rex. More than anything, I just -- I want you to be okay. I mean, you're not doing anything to hurt yourself, are you?

Rex: What?

Mimi: It's just you're acting so different all of a sudden. But not all the time.

Rex: What, you think I experimented on myself? No, Mimi. But somebody else did.

Rex: I just -- I want to believe my life has a purpose beyond being an experiment, you know? And I've lost so many years, and I feel like I've wasted even more time buying into these lies about who I am. Look, we don't have forever, Mimi. Okay? None of us do. And I just get so afraid that I'll run out of time before I ever figure out what I'm doing here, let alone actually get around to doing it.

Mimi: Rex, you're not the only person who feels that way. I mean, just because I had a pretty normal childhood -- I mean, if you can call anything normal -- I still don't know what I'm supposed to be doing with my life. I guess I don't feel the pressure you do to be remembered for all eternity for some important contribution to humanity. I just want to make it count. I want to be a good person. I want to be happy. And I want to make people happy.

Rex: I'm so sorry that I made you unhappy, Mimi.

Mimi: You've also made me very happy.

Rex: I just -- I can't promise that I won't behave badly ever again.

Mimi: Neither can I.

Rex: You never do.

Mimi: Sure I do.

Rex: No. No matter what's going on, you don't lose it with me or with anyone. You said that you thought I didnít respect you. You have no idea how much I respect you, Mimi. I mean, I want to be more like you.

Mimi: Like me? No.

Rex: Yeah. But no matter what, I'd never hurt you. You believe that, don't you?

Mimi: Yes, I do.

Rex: Good. Then do you think you want to try and go blading with me?

Mimi: Blading?

Rex: For fun this time.

Mimi: You mean without a creepy dead body?

Rex: Yeah. You wanna try it? The shed's right the..

Mimi: I love you.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Cassie: And this is Roger. You wanted to know what I was hiding.

Philip: Hey.

Cassie: There you have it. I'm abnormal, antisocial, and the product of an experiment that was a miserable failure.

Philip: Don't say that.

Cassie: I don't know how to respond to you. At least Roger doesn't talk back. When I was growing up with Rex -- well, at the lab -- uh, there were rabbits that were kept in cages, too, like us. And I didn't know words then... or what pets were... or toys, but... I was sure that I could speak to them and they could speak back to me. We were exactly the same. Except that Rex and i were always there and... the little rabbits kept being taken away.

Philip: You mean they were --

Cassie: Killed? Yeah. Probably. One time, I took one of them out of a cage, and I just held him. He didn't try and run away. He was just happy to -- to snuggle up to me. And then the technician caught us, and... I didn't tell him to run away for his life. I just held him, and I wouldn't let him go, and I feel -- I felt his heart beating. And the rabbit was punished because I disobeyed -- because I was too selfish to let him go.

Philip: Well, he probably wouldn't have gotten away, anyhow, right?

Cassie: Yeah, but to spend your whole life in a cage -- I mean, at least... at least Rex and I -- we got free. Look, I'm not the only one with a screwed-up childhood. I mean, yours wasn't perfect, was it?

Philip: No one's is.

Rex: Cassie!

Cassie: Please. Please don't ever tell anybody about this.

Mimi: Hey, you two. What's going on?

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Nicole: Well, how long ago did Mr. Kiriakis leave? Then why isn't he here yet, Luis? Never mind.

Brady: Nicole... for you.

Nicole: Wow. Uh...they're beautiful. Who would have -- Brady?

Brady: No, no, I didn't send these to you. Here.

Brady: What is it?

Nicole: Uh... they're from Victor. Why would he send me these?

Brady: To wish you luck for tonight.

Nicole: No. No, he doesn't even want me working here. Oh, my god. He sent these to mess with my head.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Brady: Mess with your head? What are you talking about? You two have a date tonight. Why wouldn't my grandfather want to send you flowers?

Nicole: Never mind. You're right. I'm being silly. Brady, I guess I'm just so nervous about tonight. I just want everything to go the way we planned it.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Bo: Hey, you can forget that fountain of youth. What we need is a magical wonder to corral all these books and toys and drawings and --

Hope: Yeah, well, that magical wonder has been called "mom" for about 100,000 years, Brady.

Bo: Uh-huh.

Hope: Hey.

Bo: What?

Hope: Thank you.

Bo: For?

Hope: For all that you do.

Bo: You know, it's great to have all this time with Zack, especially when he's young, just like we did with Shawn.

Hope: Yeah.

Bo: And it's really great to be working with you again.

Hope: It has been fun, hasn't it?

Bo: Mm-hmm.

Hope: I just wish we were having better luck figuring out what Mayaís goop was and what she was up to.

Bo: I think we'll do just fine...

Hope: 1, 2, 3, hut!

Bo: Because you're the best partner I ever did have.

Hope: You too, Brady, in every way. Okay, so what next? I mean, not that I don't love a great pursuit, because I do.

Bo: Mm-hmm.

Hope: But this so-called goop certainly isn't going to help us earn a living, is it?

Bo: I don't know. If we figure out its potential, it might be a real moneymaker.

Hope: Yeah, which doesn't seem likely.

Bo: I thought our brainstorming session just -- it was great. We came up with some really good stuff. Maybe we need to rest up and recharge our batteries.

Hope: Hmm. Sounds good.

Bo: Mm-hmm. Come on over here. Ooh!

Hope: Sit down, Brady.

Bo: Oh, okay, I think I will.

Hope: Yeah.

Bo: Oh.

Hope: What?

Bo: Better not get too comfortable.

Hope: Why not?

Bo: I got a little surprise for you.

Hope: Really?

Bo: Mm-hmm.

Hope: Hmm. Whatever it is, can we just stay here?

Bo: Mm, you wouldn't say that if you knew what the surprise was.

Hope: What is it then?

Bo: I'm not gonna ruin it. I did get a sitter for Zack. She's upstairs right now, and you are coming with me.

Hope: Ooh! Brady!

Bo: Yes, here we go.

Hope: 1, 2, 3, hut! Oh! I'll get the door for you.

Bo: Thank you.

Hope: I'll race you to the car.

Bo: All right.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Philip: Cassie and I were just picking out a spot to watch the fireworks. Good idea renting the blades, though. Now you'll actually be tall enough to see over people's heads, Meems.

Mimi: Ha ha ha. Yeah. And no one will see over Rex's head either way.

Rex: You guys mind if I talk to Cassie for a sec?

Mimi: Sure.

Philip: Come on.

Mimi: Careful, Philip. I haven't exactly mastered stopping.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Cassie: What are you doing on those? You know that I almost killed my ankle.

Rex: What am I doing? What are you doing flirting with Philip?

Cassie: Flirting? Are you crazy? I'm not an idiot. I would never go near him, not in that way.

Rex: He thinks you're available. Look, you can't lead him on, Cassie. You know you can't tell him the truth.

Cassie: I didn't even invite him here. Would you please just trust me for once?

Mimi: So what are you doing hanging with Cassie?

Philip: She was alone, I was alone. I'm not interested in her, Meems.

Mimi: Still, I can't believe you're enjoying the simple pleasure of her friendly company.

Philip: Mimi, I know how you feel about Rex, okay, and Rex loves Cassie. So maybe it wouldn't hurt to just give her another chance. I don't know, I just -- I think that she's much more vulnerable than she seems.

Mimi: You don't know the half of it.

Mimi: Hey, do you guys want to rent some blades and come watch the fireworks with us?

Cassie: Are you kidding? I just got off crutches. Do you want me to break my neck? Oh, yeah, you would.

Rex: Come on, Cassie.

Philip: So I guess that's a no.

Cassie: You go with them if you want.

Philip: No, thanks.

Cassie: Well, then go ahead. I'm fine.

Mimi: Well, we better go stake out a spot.

Rex: Okay.

Mimi: Don't have too much fun, you two.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Cassie: You don't have to baby-sit me.

Philip: I know.

Cassie: Okay.

Mimi: You're not worried about Philip and Cassie. I mean, she wouldn't --

Rex: I don't know what she'd do. You think I'm unpredictable these days? He doesn't exactly seem like the most honorable --

Mimi: Philip's a really nice guy, and he's a marine.

Rex: Yeah, so?

Mimi: And he's your half-brother.

Rex: No kidding!

Mimi: Please don't yell at me.

Rex: Look, I wasn't yelling. It's just that you keep reminding me, and it's driving me crazy! Damn it!

Mimi: Ouch!

Rex: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you. God, what is the matter with people? Why do they always have to be so inconsiderate?

Mimi: I don't know, Rex, but for such a fun stroll in the park, I'm not having much fun, are you? You're the one who's made the choice not to tell people who your real parents are. I understand why, but if it's going to make you this totally stressed out all the time and you're going to take it out on the people around you, I can't be around you, Rex. As much as I love you and I want to be there for you, I'm sorry, but I canít.

 *******************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Bo: Keep your eyes closed. Keep them cl-- you're not going to bump -- all right, detective Brady, where are we?

Hope: Well, let's see. Uh, you took me in the back way so I wouldn't hear the P.A. system, but my nose tells me...

Bo: Mm-hmm?

Hope: The hospital cafeteria was making turkey hash tonight. That was the special.

Bo: Yeah, very good.

Hope: And then we went up in the elevator, I think, so -- well, I mean, you wouldn't be taking me to the morgue, would you, Brady?

Bo: Not tonight.

Hope: And since we're outside, I'd have to guess the rooftop.

Bo: Amazing.

Hope: But now you have me really stumped.

Bo: Why's that?

Hope: Because I wouldn't exactly figure that we'd be coming out here as a very romantic getaway.

Bo: Well, well, you just keep your eyes closed. Keep them closed. Keep them closed.

Hope: Wait a minute, where are you going?

Bo: Just stay here. This is the best place in Salem. It's got a clear view of the riverfront. Open 'em.

Hope: The fireworks.

Bo: Yes, the fireworks, and I selfishly wanted you all to myself.

Hope: You know what? This is romantic. Not that I ever doubted you.

Bo: Mm-hmm. Wait, wait, wait, wait. It gets better. Walk this way. Walk this way.

Hope: What are you doing?

Bo: Here you are.

Hope: When did you do this?

Bo: Hey, don't you worry your pretty self about that. I've got my ways of accomplishing things.

Bo: I love you.

Hope: I love you.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Cassie: I know you're only sitting here because you have no better options at the moment.

Philip: You really do have a way with words, don't you, Cassie?

Cassie: Thanks. Okay, so if you're going to sit here, can I pick your brain for a second?

Philip: Yeah, sure.

Cassie: Am I a hopeless case?

Philip: What?

Cassie: Do you think that Roger is going to be my only friend for the rest of my life?

Philip: Do you want him to be?

Cassie: No.

Philip: Well, then you're not hopeless, Cassie. And don't let yourself think that way. You don't want to be too needy. That scares people away. You're not needy. Just remember, you're an independent person.

Cassie: Well, guys don't like it when girls are independent, right?

Philip: Sure, they do. What? Any guy that's worth your time. What doesn't go over so well is bitchy.

Cassie: How about guys that are rude and insulting?

Philip: Hey, look, you asked, okay? Listen, Cassie, I think with you, all those words are just a defense mechanism. I think you want people to get close, but you're afraid of letting them get too close. I mean, that's why today you tried to hide from me who you really are. And you can't have it both ways.

Cassie: Well, I can't change who I am.

Philip: No, of course not. I'm not talking about outward appearances here. I'm just saying to, you know, watch your claws a little bit.

Cassie: Maybe I should dye my hair blonde. Belle's blonde, and I'm not having any fun.

Philip: Come on, Cassie. You're beautiful exactly like you are.

Cassie: Thank you.

Philip: So be confident in yourself. Be bold.

Cassie: Okay, I'll be bold. I have another question.

Philip: Okay.

Cassie: The whole time you've been sitting here with me...

Philip: Mm-hmm?

Cassie: You wish you were with Belle, don't you?

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Mimi: I knew I shouldn't have taken this back. Until you're willing to change something, I can't help you.

Rex: No, well just -- what do you want me to do? I'll do it.

Mimi: You need someone to take care of you in a way that I canít.

Rex: Mimi --

Mimi: I mean, you need serious help.

Rex: Do you want me to see a psychologist?

Mimi: Counseling might not be a bad idea, but I meant a medical doctor. I mean, I think there might be something really wrong with you.

Rex: Look, of course there's something wrong with me. I'm a freak.

Mimi: That's not what I mean. I know you have this thing against doctors and hospitals, but there could be a very simple reason why you're getting headaches and why you're feeling moody all of a sudden. I mean, my grandma, she had low blood sugar, and all she had to do was eat like a piece of cheese, and she'd be a totally different person.

Rex: Look, the doctors couldn't figure out my genetic code, Mimi. I did that myself. I'm a misfit of science. If there's something wrong with me, I'm the one that's going to have to figure it out.

Mimi: Well, I know you're a genius, but you don't have x-ray vision.

Rex: No, but I can build it. Do you really think I'm sick?

Mimi: I hope not. But whatever it is, I know it's not your fault. I can't blame you. It's just -- I have to take care of myself.

Rex: I want to take care of you, Mimi -- forever.

Mimi: If you want to do that, you have to take care of yourself first.

Rex: Okay, I'll do it -- whatever it takes, Mimi. I promise.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Philip: Me and Belle? Where did that come from?

Cassie: Hey, just answer the question.

Philip: Well, yeah, I like Belle, but as a friend. Plus she's dating my best friend. You know that.

Cassie: So? What if she wasn't with Shawn?

Philip: Look, Cassie, I just came out of a really rough relationship, and I think it's good for me to be single. Plus she and Shawn are happy -- as much as I know you wish something bad would happen to them.

Cassie: You think that's why I asked you? Look, I don't care what happens to Belle.

Philip: Oh, I think you do. I mean, you've just been telling me how much you wanted a family your whole life, and you spend a lot of time worrying about Belle's life. And do you know why I think that is?

Cassie: Why, 'cause she's my sister?

Philip: No.

Cassie: What are you talking about?

Philip: I think it's because she was really nice to you, and you ruined it. And you feel bad, but you don't know how to take it back.

Cassie: You would take her side.

Philip: Well, why can't i be friends with both of you?

Cassie: Philip, you shouldn't try to be my friend.

Philip: Why not?

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Man: Sorry, sir. I'm just going to cut through this parking lot. Maybe we'll save a few minutes.

Victor: I don't care what traffic laws you have to break, just get me to the Blue Note.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Nicole: Oh...

[ Sighs ]

Brady: Hey.

Nicole: Look what I did. Victor won't be happy with me.

Brady: I'm sure he's not going to miss one flower. Something's wrong, isn't it?

Nicole: I-I -- I just feel like my whole future depends on what happens tonight.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Bo: Happy birthday, Salem. Thanks for the life you've given us, and especially thank you for my wife.

Hope: And my husband. And... our two beautiful boys. All four of us were born here. We sailed all around the world, and you know what? We always knew that we'd come back here someday. Okay, 200 years from now...

Bo: Mm-hmm.

Hope: Do you think that our great-great-great-great-great- great-great-grandchildren -- do you think they'll still be here remembering when?

Bo: 200 years? That's a long time. But... forever is forever.

Hope: I'll toast to that.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Mimi: What about here?

Rex: Okay.

Mimi: Eh?

Rex: Yeah.

Mimi: The last time I saw fireworks was when you and Cassie first came to Salem.

Rex: Well, I've been seeing fireworks ever since.

Mimi: Ha ha ha.

Rex: Well, at least since the first time I saw you.

Mimi: Now don't tell me it was love at first sight.

Rex: I just didn't know what love was. But I know now.

Rex: Ahh...okay. On-again, off-again.

Mimi: [ Laughs ]

Rex: Would you mind keeping this on for good now?

Mimi: I'll only take it off when I have to take a shower.

Rex: Okay.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Cassie: Look, Philip, I like you enough to not want to hurt you. Just do yourself a favor and stay away from me.

Philip: You're pushing me away again. You can't keep doing that.

Cassie: You're so stubborn!

Philip: What, you're not?

Cassie: Look, you have all these half-brothers and sisters who don't get along, right?

Philip: Mm-hmm.

Cassie: Were you always a peacemaker with them?

Philip: I tried, yeah.

Cassie: Well, you were the one your mother didn't abandon, so you don't know how the rest of us feel.

Philip: Us?

Cassie: I'm just saying that I probably identify more with your brothers and sisters than I do with you.

Philip: My family's pretty unique.

Cassie: Not as unique as mine. Look, since I'm not your girlfriend, or your potential girlfriend, you could treat me like a sister. I mean, that's what guys do, right, when they have female friends that they have no interest in?

Philip: Hey, you just called me a friend.

Cassie: I did?

Philip: Mm-hmm.

Cassie: Yeah, I -- I guess I did.

Philip: Do you want to watch these fireworks, or what?

Cassie: [ Laughs ]

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Nicole: Why? What did you think the problem was?

Brady: Well, ever since the shooting at the pool, you've been pretty shaken up.

Nicole: Yeah, but you're the one who almost took a bullet.

Brady: Yeah, but I -- I shouldn't have pointed fingers. I mean, I don't know who tried to kill me, and if I thought that there was danger here at this club, you would not be working here. None of us would.

Nicole: Thank you for trying to make me feel better. I really do appreciate it.

[Telephone rings ]

Man: Blue note. Yeah, just one minute. Mrs. K.? You got a phone call.

Nicole: Thanks, Jimmy.

Jimmy: Sure.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Nicole: Hello? This is Nicole.

Victor: Did you get my flowers?

Nicole: Uh, yes. They're beautiful.

Victor: Well, I apologize for being late. Traffic's been a nightmare. But we're pulling into the parking lot right now.

Nicole: Great. So, uh, what are the flowers for?

Victor: What are they for? Just because.

Nicole: Just because I'm your wife? That's never been an occasion to celebrate, not for either one of us.

Victor: Well, I'm sorry you feel that way, especially tonight. Well, listen, it's silly to sit here talking on the telephone when we can have this conversation face to face in a moment. I'll be right in.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Brady: Was that Victor?

Nicole: Yes. He was stuck in traffic, but he's just pulling in.

Brady: Is everything okay?

Nicole: I don't really think so.

Nicole: No!

(On the next Days of Our Lives)

Mimi: Did you have to be so rude?

Rex: I wasn't rude.

Mimi: Rex, they're your parents.

Rex: Ah, shut up!

Roman: There's just something about that boy sets my teeth on edge.

Bo: I'm thinking about that mystery substance.

Hope: Stop right there. I can't take it anymore .

Brady: Granddad, get down!
