Belle: Of course we can talk. You can always talk to me. You know that. Philip, what's wrong?

Philip: Your father came down on me pretty hard.

Belle: About the Maya Leano case?

Philip: On behalf of the entire I.S.A.

Belle: Because of me.

Philip: Would you stop with that?

Belle: Philip, it's my fault. I never should've interfered.

Philip: No, you are not to blame, Belle.

Belle: Yes, I am. And I just hate it that my dad's coming down so hard on you. I mean, with everything you've had to deal with, you -- you did a really great job.

Philip: Well, he doesn't think so. He's bumped me down to basic Marine status.

Belle: Philip...

Philip: I mean, why -- why now? Just when...

Belle: Just when what?

Philip: Nothing. Look, I'm gonna go, okay? This was a bad idea.

Belle: Wait, what -- what was a bad idea -- us talking?

Philip: Look, your father's involved, and I think you should just stay out of this. Can we just -- can we just forget the last two minutes ever happened?

Belle: Philip!

Philip: I'll see you around, okay?

Belle: No. No, it is not okay. You're not going anywhere. I won't let you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mickey: You got it?

Shawn-D: Yeah.

Mickey: How about over there?

Shawn-D: Yeah. That's -- that's perfect.

Mickey: It'll give us a little privacy here.

Shawn-D: Yeah. Lisa's working again, huh?

Mickey: Mm. Shawn... I know this started as an experiment -- the two of us teaming up -- but, you know, you've gone way beyond -- way beyond my expectations. I've been very impressed with the work you've done.

Shawn-D: Well, thank you, uncle Mickey. I appreciate it.

Mickey: You are smart. You're hardworking. You're a talented young man. And you have all the right instincts. I've been thinking that one day, uh... ha ha ha ha... in the distant future when I... when I get set to retire, maybe, uh, I'd like to... pass on this practice to the family.

Shawn-D: Uh... so...

Mickey: So... you interested?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mimi: Can we stay like this forever?

Rex: I wish.

Mimi: Well, we could just start with today, not move from this spot until tomorrow. I'd settle for that if forever is out of the question.

Rex: No, there's too many things to do.

Mimi: Yeah, I know. Places to go, people to see...

Rex: Actually, Mimi, I do need you to see someone and go someplace.

Mimi: You do?

Rex: Yeah. Lucas.

Mimi: Lucas? Why?

Rex: Well, I want you to get a DNA sample from him, so --

Mimi: No, no, no, no, no, no.

Rex: Mimi, come on, it's simple.

Mimi: Been there, done that. No more. It's way too weird.

Rex: But it's important to me.

Mimi: Going around collecting hair or blood or -- or dead skin or whatever it is I have to do?

Rex: Mimi, wait, wait, wait, look at -- I've explained it to you how I have to gather all the information I can on my half-siblings.

Mimi: That has such a strange ring to it, I can't even tell you.

Rex: But none of them can ever know that I'm related to them, you understand me?

Mimi: Of course I understand you. You've only told me a zillion times. No one can ever find out that Tony Dimera's not your real father -- never, ever, ever, ever, ever. I get it. It's burned into my brain, okay?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Cassie: What did you say?

Sami: You heard me. I know the truth.

Cassie: What truth?

Sami: That you and your brother aren't Tony's kids.

Cassie: I don't know what you're talking about. Tony and Marlena --

Sami: Marlena's not your mother, either, so don't waste your breath trying to deny it.

Cassie: Okay, this is just fascinating. Tell me, how did you become so all knowing?

Sami: Your brother.

Cassie: Now, that's a lie, because my brother wouldn't tell you anything, much less anything so important.

Sami: He didn't tell me. I overheard. Rex and Mimi were talking about it in my hospital room. For a guy who's supposed to be such a genius, he sure did do something stupid, didn't he? Doesn't he know that just because a person can't talk, it doesn't mean they can't hear.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

John: Seems like a test, doesn't it? Always one thing after another. First we make it out of the yacht alive... actually achieve some kind of peace between the two of us, and now you're... lying here with your life ‘hanging in the balance’ yet again. Damn. So, how'd it happen, huh? How'd she get to you? Come on, you're supposed to be powerful. You're supposed to be untouchable. What were you and Maya after? What the hell was so important that she would try to kill you, Tony? Not once, but twice.

John: Look, I know that our relationship hasn't always been great -- probably never will be. That doesn't change the fact that I am your brother, and I don't want you to die.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

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

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

John: Hey.

Marlena: I just heard.

John: Who'd you speak to?

Marlena: Surgeon. Only briefly, but...

John: But what?

Marlena: Tony's been through so much, and now this... reaction to the anesthesia.

John: Are there some specialists I should be dealing with? You know, I'll get 'em. I don't care where they are. I'll fly 'em in.

Marlena: No, he's getting very good care right here at the hospital. All that can be done is being done.

John: I just wish there was something I could do.

John: Doc?

Marlena: Hmm?

John: That look. Is there something you're not telling me -- something about Tony's condition?

Marlena: No, no. No, it's about you. Ever since the yacht sank, you've been telling me that you have gotten over the past, that you're at peace with Tony. I didn't believe that until now.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rex: Look, I thought you wanted to help.

Mimi: I do, but there just has to be some other way.

Rex: Well, there isn't.

Mimi: Rex, collecting DNA from people on the sly is an invasion of privacy, not to mention that it's creepy and gross. And I've had it up to here with creepy and gross. Between blading in the park with that corpse and hanging around a morgue --

Rex: Well, if you can think of a better way, please let me know.

Mimi: Why are you even doing this? I mean, if you're so hell-bent on not telling anyone the truth, on continuing this charade as a Dimera --

Rex: I am a Dimera!

Mimi: You're also being really scary again, and you said you were going to try and control that.

Rex: Look, I'm sorry, okay? Listen, think of it this way, all right? It's like I'm adopted, right? I mean, would you tell an adopted child he's not part of the family?

Mimi: Of course not, but --

Rex: Well, Cassie and i were created in a Petri dish in a lab, you know, and not by two people, but by a sociopathic scientist, okay? A man who used our genetic material without permission. I mean, we were nobody's children until Tony came along. You know, he opened up his home to us -- his heart. I mean, we're his children because he wanted us, not because some DNA test told him he had an obligation to take care of us. No, it was all out of love.

Mimi: I hadn't thought of it like that before.

Rex: Okay. Then you understand now.

Mimi: Yeah, but... what I still don't get is if you want to be a Dimera, you want to be part of this loving, adopted family, then why do you still have to get DNA samples from all Roman and Kate's kids?

Rex: Research. Just general research for my files.

Mimi: Your files.

Rex: Even though I might be more comfortable now with my situation, with the way my life is, it doesn't mean I stop trying to figure out who I am, you know, which I see as a combination of two things. Nature and nurture. You know, partly how I was raised and partly genetic makeup. It can't be a bad idea to have information on my biological family, to know the history. For medical reasons, if nothing else.

Mimi: Like when Chloe had leukemia, and she started to look for her biological father, even though it turned out it wasn’t... never mind, it doesn't matter.

Rex: No, no, no. It does, all right? It makes you understand why I need to do this, okay? Look, Mimi, if I don't have a comprehensive dossier on my true genetic birth link, then...

Mimi: Are you all right?

Rex: Yeah. Just...going slightly mad, that's all. I feel like all I do is search and search --

Mimi: Okay, okay, Rex, I'll do it. Whatever you want, okay? I'll help you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Cassie: I wish you'd never gotten your voice back.

Sami: Like I couldn't have written it down?

Cassie: I can't believe you would do this to me!

Sami: Why? You were under the impression that we were friends?

Cassie: How is he? Did you find anything else about Tony?

Lucas: No, no, there's no change.

Sami: Look, why don't you take a hike, go get yourself something to eat or something?

Lucas: What, are you trying to get rid of me or something?

Sami: Just -- we're in the middle of something, can't you see that?

Cassie: Girl talk.

Sami: Go away. Can't you tell when you're not wanted, Lucas?

Lucas: Fine. Why don't you take a cab home, or better yet, jog? Those look like comfortable sandals.

Cassie: Don't you care about Tony at all? God, how could you pull this with everything he's going through?

Sami: We're not talking about Tony.

Cassie: You have no heart.

Sami: We're talking about you. The party is over, Cassie.

Cassie: Just leave me alone, okay? This is none of your damn business!

Sami: Actually, it is very much my business, little miss Brady. After all, we're still family. That's right. I know everything. I know that my father is your father.

Roman: Sami. Say that again. 

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mimi: Lucas.

Lucas: What?

Mimi: It's you.

Lucas: What gave it away?

Mimi: I mean, it is you.

Lucas: Yeah, we've established that already.

Mimi: Right. And I just wanted to say hi.

Lucas: Well, hi.

Mimi: Yeah, you know, hello. So, how is everything, Lucas? I mean, this is crazy, right, running into each other like this? It must be my lucky day.

Lucas: What are you talking about?

Mimi: Nothing. No, wait, I mean, I just popped in here for a refreshment, and here you are. It's just so nice to see a familiar face.

Lucas: What are you, traveling? Were you out of the country or something?

Mimi: No, but that's funny, though. You're funny.

Lucas: Glad I could amuse.

Mimi: I'm just in a good mood, that's all. And I'm not making any sense, but you know what? I don't care.

Lucas: Glad one of us is in a good mood.

Lisa: Can I get you two something to drink?

Lucas: Uh... I'll have an iced tea. Uh...sweet, please.

Lisa: Okay.

Mimi: I'll have the same thing, Lisa.

Lisa: Okay, you got it.

Mimi: Thank you.

Lucas: What?

Mimi: Nothing. You just -- you don't look so good. Is everything kosher at the cookie factory?

Lucas: What? What are you talking -- what are you saying?

Mimi: Are you okay?

Lucas: No, I'm not okay.

Mimi: What's wrong?

Lucas: Let's just say it's been a hell of a birthday, all right?

Mimi: [ Gasps ] Oh, my gosh. It's your birthday? Happy birthday.

Lucas: Thank you.

Mimi: I had no idea.

Lucas: Why would you? My own family doesn't even seem to remember.

Mimi: You mean they forgot?

Lucas: Yes, they forgot. But I don't care about that. That's not what's bugging me. It's Tony.

Mimi: What about him?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mickey: I know that -- that running a law firm might be a bit tricky for somebody so young, but --

Shawn-D: All right, wait -- wait a minute, wait a minute. Are you talking about me?

Mickey: No, no, actually, I wanted to see if you thought maybe Zack could handle it. Come on, of course I'm talking about you.

Shawn-D: I just don't -- I don't know what to say.

Mickey: Listen to me, Shawn. If you are serious about becoming a lawyer, okay, then I'll do everything I can to mentor you, and as soon as you finish law school, you got a place in my office if you want it, okay?

Shawn-D: Ha ha. You have no idea what this means to me, uncle Mickey, but, uh...

Mickey: But what?

Shawn-D: I'm not sure I'm the man you' looking for.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: Lemonade -- nothing like it.

Philip: Thanks, Belle.

Belle: Well, I'm really glad you decided to stay.

Philip: Like I had a choice in the matter.

Belle: Philip, things might seem really bad right now, but I have this feeling they're going to turn out to be okay.

Philip: Well, that's nice to hear, but --

Belle: Sometimes it just takes a while, but I truly believe good things happen to good people, and you are definitely a good guy.

Philip: Well, not good enough. Let's face it.

Belle: What is that supposed to mean?

Philip: Well, compared to Shawn the perfect?

Belle: What does he have to do with this?

Philip: Never mind.

Belle: No, no, Philip, I -- I don't understand. Are you angry with Shawn?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rex: Perfect. Compared to the laser that sank with the yacht, this model will be revolutionary. Tony will see how invaluable I am to the family business. He'll see --

[ Telephone rings ]

Rex: Damn it. What?

Mimi: Rex, it's me.

Rex: Mimi. Sorry. Uh, what's up?

Mimi: Tony's in the hospital. There was -- he -- he was attacked. Someone tried to kill him.

Rex: Wait -- wait -- how? I - I don't understand.

Mimi: I'm with Lucas right now in the Brady pub. He told me. He was there when it happened.

Rex: Tony --

Mimi: Okay, I'm going to be right over, okay? I'm going to leave right now.

Rex: No, no, no, just stay with Lucas, all right? Finish what I sent you to do. I'll catch up with you later.

 

Sami: Say what again?

Roman: Anything. Say anything.

Sami: Well, I -- I don't --

Roman: Look, I'm just so glad that you can talk again, I just want to hear your voice some more, all right?

Sami: Oh. Great.

Roman: Give me a hug. Look, I know it's still a strain to talk, so I don't want to hear it all that much, okay? You are taking it easy, right?

Sami: Yeah, I'm trying.

Roman: I know the doctors don't want you to overdo.

Sami: I'll be careful, I promise.

Roman: All right, but I need to ask you to talk for me right now. Do you feel up to helping us out?

Sami: Well, with what?

Roman: I'm heading up the investigation into Tony's stabbing. You're an eyewitness. Maybe you know something.

Sami: Well, I do know something.

Roman: All right. Anything you can remember that might have happened.

Sami: Okay.

Roman: God, it's good to hear you talk. You know, I'm just so glad you can talk again.

Sami: Yes, I can, and I have a lot to say.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Marlena: Can i get you something -- some coffee, soup, something?

John: You can get someone who will tell me Tony's going to be all right.

Marlena: Well, it's odd, isn't it?

John: What is?

Marlena: Well, on the Tony issue -- you and me on opposite sides.

John: Opposite sides. So what are you saying, you want Tony to die?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mickey: Wait -- wait a second. I thought you were enrolled in all those summer pre-law courses.

Shawn-D: I am. It's just, uh... I'm not going to be able to pursue a career as a lawyer until I retire from being a professional baseball player.

Mickey: I see.

Shawn-D: And don't laugh. Dot t -- I see you laughing.

Mickey: No, no. Who's laughing? I know you're a very good athlete.

Shawn-D: Well, I-I am, but I'm not that good, and I realize it's a long shot, but... it's always been a dream of mine, and I'm just not ready to give it up.

Mickey: Making it through law school is a tough proposition, Shawn, no question about it, but making it as a pro ballplayer, that --

Shawn-D: It's, you know, it's against the odds, but I come from a family that is used to beating the odds.

Mickey: Just so long as you make education your first priority.

Shawn-D: That will not change.

Mickey: It's always good to have a fallback plan.

Shawn-D: You're right.

Mickey: Yeah.

Shawn-D: Yeah. We'll see.

Mickey: Okay. Well, whatever happens, whenever it happens, if the pro ball career doesn't take off, I know you'll make a damn fine lawyer, and I'm going to help you any way I can, okay?

Shawn-D: Thank you, uncle Mickey. Your faith in me -- I just want you to know it means so much to me.

Mickey: The law profession has been very good to me, and... I'm sure that if you do want -- want to pursue it, someday, it'll be very good to you as well, not to mention the added fringe benefit that -- ahem -- lawyers -- they get the chicks.

Shawn-D: I'll, uh, factor that into my decision.

Mickey: Not -- not that you don't already have that well taken care of.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: Philip, I- I don't understand. Do you have some kind of problem with Shawn?

Philip: No. Shawn's a great guy, okay?

Belle: Yeah.

Philip: He's family, all right, and he's my best friend.

Belle: Right.

Philip: So this is not about him.

Belle: I don't -- I don't understand what's going on. All of a sudden, you bring up Shawn, and then you say you'll never be perfect like him.

Philip: No, that came out wrong, okay?

Belle: Philip, when you came back to Salem, you seemed like you had changed. You were -- you were confident and comfortable with yourself.

Philip: And what, now -- now I'm back to square one?

Belle: No, no, that's not -- that's not what I'm saying. It's just now it seems like you're confused and you don't know what you want.

Philip: I know exactly what I want. I just can't have it.

Belle: What is that supposed to mean?

Philip: Forget it, okay?

Belle: Philip, please.

Philip: Belle, I can't talk about this, okay? Not now.

Belle: Talk about what? If you have something to say to me, say it. 

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Marlena: Jo-- I-- how can you ask me that? Tony's your brother. He's Rex and Cassie's father. Why would I want -- that's just a terrible accusation.

John: I'm sorry, but you said that you and I were on opposite sides of this thing, so I just th --

Marlena: Well, what I meant was it's just very jarring to have you seeing all the positive things in Tony while I'm --

John: What?

Marlena: I- I'm just having a hard time-sharing your compassion, that's all.

John: Why is that? Has he done something I don't know about?

Marlena: No, of course not. It's the influence that he has over the twins. That upsets me a lot. And Tony can't instill in them proper values. It's not going to happen. Tony can't be any kind of role model for Rex and Cassie. He just can't --

Rex: Stop it. Don't talk about my father that way.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Sami: I know everything.

Roman: You saw the actual stabbing?

Sami: Yeah, dad, I saw the whole thing. I tried to call out a warning to Tony, but my voice wasn't strong enough, and by the time he heard me, it was too late. He turned, and the scalpel went right into his chest.

Roman: Sami, I'm sorry you had to see that.

Sami: Well, I don't understand. We know who did it. What's left to investigate?

Roman: Well, unfortunately, dead men don't talk. We know the who, what, where. We just don't know the why here, and that's what might lead us to whoever else was involved. All right. You take care of your health, okay?

Sami: Okay.

Roman: Make sure that voice gets taken care of, too.

Sami: I'll try.

Roman: All right. Later we'll talk about you coming down to the station, making a formal statement, okay?

Sami: Okay.

Roman: And anything else you remember that I should know...

Sami: Dad, if I think there is anything else you should know, I will call you right away, believe me.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: Okay, we need to back up, because I am totally confused.

Philip: Why don't we just drop it, then, okay?

Belle: No. Why can't you tell me what you can't have?

Philip: This is so not a good idea.

Belle: Look, Philip, if it's about the marines or the I.S.A., you can still talk to me about it. I might not have firsthand experience --

Philip: No, it's not that, Belle, okay? Although the work situation, as you know, is pretty bleak.

Belle: Okay, then, what is it?

Philip: Something more personal.

Belle: Is this about Chloe?

Philip: No -- no, it's not about Chloe. Belle, haven't you been paying attention at all?

Belle: Paying attention to what?

Philip: This is so stupid. I never should have brought this up. Look... just never mind, okay? Never mind. You know what? I'm just going to go, all right?

Belle: No, no, Philip. You're not going anywhere until you tell me what's going on.

Philip: Fine. I'll tell you, but you're not going to like it.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Marlena: Rex, we didn't know you were there.

Rex: I just heard about Tony. Is he...

Marlena: Uh, your father is out of surgery, but he's unconscious. It's a reaction to the anesthesia.

Rex: I need to see him.

Marlena: Of course, of course.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Lisa: Okay, another round?

Lucas: No.

Mimi: That'd be great. Thanks.

Lisa: Okay.

Mimi: So... Rex was pretty freaked out when he heard about Tony.

Lucas: Well, yeah, why wouldn't he be?

Mimi: Yeah.

Lucas: And he wasn't even there when it happened.

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Lucas: Excuse me a second.

[ Ring ]

Lucas: Hello. Mom. Thank you, thank you. No, no, I didn't think you forgot my birthday. It's just with everything going on, you know... everything going on at the hospital with Tony, I didn't think wishing me a birthday was, uh, too high on the priority list, but that's all right. Wait, no, I am not acting like anything. You're the one who keeps bringing this up. I'm totally fine with it. Can we please not do this right now? We'll -- we'll work something out, okay? We'll -- we'll -- we'll get together, we'll celebrate. Everything will be fine. I just don't want to have this conversation anymore. Yeah, we could do that. It's up to you. I don't know. Fine, that -- that sounds great. Okay. Yes, I- I love you, too. Bye.

Mimi: See, your mom didn't forget your birthday.

Lucas: No, she didn't.

Mimi: Oh, whoa, time is definitely not on my side today.

Lucas: You got to go now?

Mimi: Yeah, unfortunately.

Lucas: No, no, no, don't do that. I got it.

Mimi: No, no, no. Lucas, it's your birthday. The least I could do is spring for a beverage or two.

Lucas: Well --

Mimi: Hey, now, you have a good rest of the day. Happy birthday, and put a smile on your face. Bye.

Lucas: Bye.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mickey: Okay. Let's get back to the case at hand. I know that you're only half serious about being a pro ballplayer --

Shawn-D: No, I- I'm actually very serious. I just don't know if I'm good enough.

Mickey: All right, okay. I understand. Let -- let's say that you do make it to the pros, okay? Would you -- would you really want to be on the road nine months out of the year?

Shawn-D: Oh, yeah, yeah. Why not?

Mickey: Ha ha ha. Well, I know it's all very exciting, of course, you know, the money and the fame and everything, but if you -- if you're thinking about settling down, having a family --

Shawn-D: Yeah, right, I am at some point -- with Belle... if she'll have me.

Mickey: Oh, I don't think you have to worry about that. Whenever I see the two of you together, she is obviously very much in love with you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: Philip, I don't care if -- if I like it, don't like it, or don't even understand it. You still need to tell me what it is.

Philip: You're right, Belle. I came back from the marines a changed man. I am more focused now, I am more driven, and I am more sure of myself than I've ever been in my life, and that is what makes this so hard.

Belle: What is "this"?

Philip: Us. Our friendship.

Belle: Is our friendship in danger?

Philip: Actually, yes, it is.

Belle: Why?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rex: Look, you have to pull through this. You're strong. You can do it. I know you can. Just... don't leave me. Please.

Rex: Can he hear me?

Marlena: I think he knows you're here.

Rex: I just need to get some air.

Marlena: I'll check on him.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

John: Hey, brother. I know you can hear me. So you remember what you said to me when we were sharing that air bubble on your capsized yacht -- you know, right when we thought that this was it? You said you didn't want to leave Cassie and Rex. Well, now's your chance to prove it. You gotta fight for Cassie and Rex, Tony. You heard your boy. Come on, Tony. Get angry. I didn't save your ugly butt out there in the ocean just so you could die on me like this.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rex: If we lose him...

Marlena: We won't lose him.

Rex: I don't know what Cassie and I would do.

Marlena: Rex, if god forbid, the worst happened, you and Cassie will never be alone. I promise you, you'll never be alone again. I'm your mother. I will always, always be here for you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Roman: All right. Well, uh, I guess I better get back to work. This investigation is not going to be cut-and-dried, that's for sure.

Sami: Dad, be careful, okay? Promise me.

Roman: I will. I promise, okay? You tell your mom about this good news. You got your voice back.

Sami: Okay, I'll tell her as soon as I can.

Roman: And, Cassie, look, I am, uh, I am very sorry for what you're going through, and, uh, believe me, I do mean this -- I hope your dad pulls through.

Cassie: I know he will.

Roman: Okay.

Sami: Bye, dad. What to do, what to do. 'Cause, you see, it's a lose-lose situation for Sami. If I get to tell my mom the good news that you're not her kid, I'm forced to tell my dad the bad news that you're his.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Cassie: Why don't you just forget what you heard, and leave it alone?

Sami: You'd prefer that, wouldn't you?

Cassie: Why screw up a good thing? Everyone is happier this way.

Sami: Well, that's stretching things a bit, isn't it? Everybody? I mean, you and Rex -- you sure hit the jackpot. Heirs to the Dimera fortune. Man, having all of that snatched away from you? That would pretty much suck. No wonder you want to keep your little secret.

Cassie: I want to stay a Dimera, but it's not because of the money.

Sami: Yeah, right.

Cassie: You see, you wouldn't understand that, though, because you're just a shallow mercenary bitch, but for me, it's about pride.

Sami: Get outta my face, Cassie.

Cassie: You know, I am proud as hell to be part of the Dimera family, and I would be embarrassed and humiliated and not to mention sick to my stomach to have to call myself a Brady.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

John: Where's Rex?

Marlena: He went to find Cassie, gather himself. How's Tony?

John: Someone's in there with him now. They're going to run some more tests. We won't know anything until the morning.

Marlena: A rough day, huh?

John: Yeah, a rough day.

Marlena: Why don't i take you home and just take care of you?

John: Sounds good. Sounds real good.

 

Sami: How dare you even mention my family's name in the same sentence as the Dimeras? The Bradys are a wonderful, loving, honorable people.

Cassie: Oh, you forgot poor and uneducated.

Sami: Where do you get off being a snob, you little alien freak show conceived in some nasty little Petri dish? Who the hell do you think you are?

Cassie: At least I'm not a total screw-up like you. See, I haven't been left at the altar, like, 10 times, crying like a fool.

Sami: Shut your damn mouth.

Cassie: See, you ruin everything you touch, Samantha Brady. You can't get love right, you can't get work right. Hell, you can barely keep yourself alive.

Sami: Let me ask you a question, Cassie.

Cassie: Yeah.

Sami: Ever had your ass kicked?

Rex: Hey, hey, hey, back off! Both of you!

Cassie: [ Groans ] Rex!

Rex: What the hell is going on?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

[ Knock on door ]

Mimi: Rex? Come out, come out, wherever you are! Odd. Oh, don't be a moron, Meems. He's probably at the hospital. I hope everything's okay there. Now, let's see. If I were... a straw swathed in precious DNA, where would I want to hide? The desk -- always a good spot. What in the world? "How Not to Ruin a Relationship." My goodness. "10 Steps to Lasting Love." Oh, I gotta take a look at this. You're kidding me. He underlined passages. Ha ha ha ha. How sweet. He really is trying.

[ Sighs ] No. No, no, no. No more snooping. We're too good for that, Mimi. He's too good for that. You know what we'll do? We'll leave him a note. Dearest Rex, the sample... is in the desk on a straw. What is this? Huh... so this is the secret project. Backwards, forwards, diagonal... it all looks the same to me. Darn, if it isn't just a tad creepola, though. I don't want to know. I don't want to know. I don't want to know. From quantum confusion to a vast collection of self-help lit. Books on love and blueprints for spacecraft. What is this man?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

[ Cellular phone rings ]

[ Ring ]

Lucas: Hello? Grandma Alice. No, no, I didn't think you forgot. Thank you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Shawn-D: So... is it that obvious that Belle and I --

Mickey: Very, very obvious that the two of you are in love. If you're trying to hide it, you're doing a lousy job.

Shawn-D: I - I guess we are, huh?

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Shawn-D: Excuse me. Hello. Dad, yeah, what's up? All right, yeah, I'm on my way.

Mickey: Hey, everything okay?

Shawn-D: Uncle Mickey, I'm sorry. We're going to have to finish this later.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: So, what are you saying -- you and I -- we're not friends anymore?

Philip: No, I didn't say that.

Belle: Okay, 'cause that's what it sounded like.

Philip: Listen, Belle, our friendship is going to change, and it might not be for the better, okay? It might be for the worse. I don't know. I don't know anything anymore.

Belle: Philip, listen to me, okay? If there's one thing you can count on, it's going to be me. We've been friends forever. What could change that?

Philip: This.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

(On the next Days of Our Lives)

Maya: Sorry, Shawn, baby, even if you promised me a threesome with you and your dad -- which would be really hard to turn down -- I'm still not telling.

Nicole: No, daddy. Victor, don't. Stop it. Don't do this.

Brady: Nicole, Nicole, it's okay. I'm here.

Rex: Keep your mouth shut. You're not telling Tony or Roman the truth, sister dear!

By Eric

Belle: Of course we can talk. You can always talk to me. You know that. Philip, what's wrong?

Philip: Your father came down on me pretty hard.

Belle: About the Maya Leano case?

Philip: On behalf of the entire I.S.A.

Belle: Because of me.

Philip: Would you stop with that?

Belle: Philip, it's my fault. I never should've interfered.

Philip: No, you are not to blame, Belle.

Belle: Yes, I am. And I just hate it that my dad's coming down so hard on you. I mean, with everything you've had to deal with, you -- you did a really great job.

Philip: Well, he doesn't think so. He's bumped me down to basic Marine status.

Belle: Philip...

Philip: I mean, why -- why now? Just when...

Belle: Just when what?

Philip: Nothing. Look, I'm gonna go, okay? This was a bad idea.

Belle: Wait, what -- what was a bad idea -- us talking?

Philip: Look, your father's involved, and I think you should just stay out of this. Can we just -- can we just forget the last two minutes ever happened?

Belle: Philip!

Philip: I'll see you around, okay?

Belle: No. No, it is not okay. You're not going anywhere. I won't let you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mickey: You got it?

Shawn-D: Yeah.

Mickey: How about over there?

Shawn-D: Yeah. That's -- that's perfect.

Mickey: It'll give us a little privacy here.

Shawn-D: Yeah. Lisa's working again, huh?

Mickey: Mm. Shawn... I know this started as an experiment -- the two of us teaming up -- but, you know, you've gone way beyond -- way beyond my expectations. I've been very impressed with the work you've done.

Shawn-D: Well, thank you, uncle Mickey. I appreciate it.

Mickey: You are smart. You're hardworking. You're a talented young man. And you have all the right instincts. I've been thinking that one day, uh... ha ha ha ha... in the distant future when I... when I get set to retire, maybe, uh, I'd like to... pass on this practice to the family.

Shawn-D: Uh... so...

Mickey: So... you interested?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mimi: Can we stay like this forever?

Rex: I wish.

Mimi: Well, we could just start with today, not move from this spot until tomorrow. I'd settle for that if forever is out of the question.

Rex: No, there's too many things to do.

Mimi: Yeah, I know. Places to go, people to see...

Rex: Actually, Mimi, I do need you to see someone and go someplace.

Mimi: You do?

Rex: Yeah. Lucas.

Mimi: Lucas? Why?

Rex: Well, I want you to get a DNA sample from him, so --

Mimi: No, no, no, no, no, no.

Rex: Mimi, come on, it's simple.

Mimi: Been there, done that. No more. It's way too weird.

Rex: But it's important to me.

Mimi: Going around collecting hair or blood or -- or dead skin or whatever it is I have to do?

Rex: Mimi, wait, wait, wait, look at -- I've explained it to you how I have to gather all the information I can on my half-siblings.

Mimi: That has such a strange ring to it, I can't even tell you.

Rex: But none of them can ever know that I'm related to them, you understand me?

Mimi: Of course I understand you. You've only told me a zillion times. No one can ever find out that Tony Dimera's not your real father -- never, ever, ever, ever, ever. I get it. It's burned into my brain, okay?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Cassie: What did you say?

Sami: You heard me. I know the truth.

Cassie: What truth?

Sami: That you and your brother aren't Tony's kids.

Cassie: I don't know what you're talking about. Tony and Marlena --

Sami: Marlena's not your mother, either, so don't waste your breath trying to deny it.

Cassie: Okay, this is just fascinating. Tell me, how did you become so all knowing?

Sami: Your brother.

Cassie: Now, that's a lie, because my brother wouldn't tell you anything, much less anything so important.

Sami: He didn't tell me. I overheard. Rex and Mimi were talking about it in my hospital room. For a guy who's supposed to be such a genius, he sure did do something stupid, didn't he? Doesn't he know that just because a person can't talk, it doesn't mean they can't hear.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

John: Seems like a test, doesn't it? Always one thing after another. First we make it out of the yacht alive... actually achieve some kind of peace between the two of us, and now you're... lying here with your life ‘hanging in the balance’ yet again. Damn. So, how'd it happen, huh? How'd she get to you? Come on, you're supposed to be powerful. You're supposed to be untouchable. What were you and Maya after? What the hell was so important that she would try to kill you, Tony? Not once, but twice.

John: Look, I know that our relationship hasn't always been great -- probably never will be. That doesn't change the fact that I am your brother, and I don't want you to die.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

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

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

John: Hey.

Marlena: I just heard.

John: Who'd you speak to?

Marlena: Surgeon. Only briefly, but...

John: But what?

Marlena: Tony's been through so much, and now this... reaction to the anesthesia.

John: Are there some specialists I should be dealing with? You know, I'll get 'em. I don't care where they are. I'll fly 'em in.

Marlena: No, he's getting very good care right here at the hospital. All that can be done is being done.

John: I just wish there was something I could do.

John: Doc?

Marlena: Hmm?

John: That look. Is there something you're not telling me -- something about Tony's condition?

Marlena: No, no. No, it's about you. Ever since the yacht sank, you've been telling me that you have gotten over the past, that you're at peace with Tony. I didn't believe that until now.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rex: Look, I thought you wanted to help.

Mimi: I do, but there just has to be some other way.

Rex: Well, there isn't.

Mimi: Rex, collecting DNA from people on the sly is an invasion of privacy, not to mention that it's creepy and gross. And I've had it up to here with creepy and gross. Between blading in the park with that corpse and hanging around a morgue --

Rex: Well, if you can think of a better way, please let me know.

Mimi: Why are you even doing this? I mean, if you're so hell-bent on not telling anyone the truth, on continuing this charade as a Dimera --

Rex: I am a Dimera!

Mimi: You're also being really scary again, and you said you were going to try and control that.

Rex: Look, I'm sorry, okay? Listen, think of it this way, all right? It's like I'm adopted, right? I mean, would you tell an adopted child he's not part of the family?

Mimi: Of course not, but --

Rex: Well, Cassie and i were created in a Petri dish in a lab, you know, and not by two people, but by a sociopathic scientist, okay? A man who used our genetic material without permission. I mean, we were nobody's children until Tony came along. You know, he opened up his home to us -- his heart. I mean, we're his children because he wanted us, not because some DNA test told him he had an obligation to take care of us. No, it was all out of love.

Mimi: I hadn't thought of it like that before.

Rex: Okay. Then you understand now.

Mimi: Yeah, but... what I still don't get is if you want to be a Dimera, you want to be part of this loving, adopted family, then why do you still have to get DNA samples from all Roman and Kate's kids?

Rex: Research. Just general research for my files.

Mimi: Your files.

Rex: Even though I might be more comfortable now with my situation, with the way my life is, it doesn't mean I stop trying to figure out who I am, you know, which I see as a combination of two things. Nature and nurture. You know, partly how I was raised and partly genetic makeup. It can't be a bad idea to have information on my biological family, to know the history. For medical reasons, if nothing else.

Mimi: Like when Chloe had leukemia, and she started to look for her biological father, even though it turned out it wasn’t... never mind, it doesn't matter.

Rex: No, no, no. It does, all right? It makes you understand why I need to do this, okay? Look, Mimi, if I don't have a comprehensive dossier on my true genetic birth link, then...

Mimi: Are you all right?

Rex: Yeah. Just...going slightly mad, that's all. I feel like all I do is search and search --

Mimi: Okay, okay, Rex, I'll do it. Whatever you want, okay? I'll help you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Cassie: I wish you'd never gotten your voice back.

Sami: Like I couldn't have written it down?

Cassie: I can't believe you would do this to me!

Sami: Why? You were under the impression that we were friends?

Cassie: How is he? Did you find anything else about Tony?

Lucas: No, no, there's no change.

Sami: Look, why don't you take a hike, go get yourself something to eat or something?

Lucas: What, are you trying to get rid of me or something?

Sami: Just -- we're in the middle of something, can't you see that?

Cassie: Girl talk.

Sami: Go away. Can't you tell when you're not wanted, Lucas?

Lucas: Fine. Why don't you take a cab home, or better yet, jog? Those look like comfortable sandals.

Cassie: Don't you care about Tony at all? God, how could you pull this with everything he's going through?

Sami: We're not talking about Tony.

Cassie: You have no heart.

Sami: We're talking about you. The party is over, Cassie.

Cassie: Just leave me alone, okay? This is none of your damn business!

Sami: Actually, it is very much my business, little miss Brady. After all, we're still family. That's right. I know everything. I know that my father is your father.

Roman: Sami. Say that again. 

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mimi: Lucas.

Lucas: What?

Mimi: It's you.

Lucas: What gave it away?

Mimi: I mean, it is you.

Lucas: Yeah, we've established that already.

Mimi: Right. And I just wanted to say hi.

Lucas: Well, hi.

Mimi: Yeah, you know, hello. So, how is everything, Lucas? I mean, this is crazy, right, running into each other like this? It must be my lucky day.

Lucas: What are you talking about?

Mimi: Nothing. No, wait, I mean, I just popped in here for a refreshment, and here you are. It's just so nice to see a familiar face.

Lucas: What are you, traveling? Were you out of the country or something?

Mimi: No, but that's funny, though. You're funny.

Lucas: Glad I could amuse.

Mimi: I'm just in a good mood, that's all. And I'm not making any sense, but you know what? I don't care.

Lucas: Glad one of us is in a good mood.

Lisa: Can I get you two something to drink?

Lucas: Uh... I'll have an iced tea. Uh...sweet, please.

Lisa: Okay.

Mimi: I'll have the same thing, Lisa.

Lisa: Okay, you got it.

Mimi: Thank you.

Lucas: What?

Mimi: Nothing. You just -- you don't look so good. Is everything kosher at the cookie factory?

Lucas: What? What are you talking -- what are you saying?

Mimi: Are you okay?

Lucas: No, I'm not okay.

Mimi: What's wrong?

Lucas: Let's just say it's been a hell of a birthday, all right?

Mimi: [ Gasps ] Oh, my gosh. It's your birthday? Happy birthday.

Lucas: Thank you.

Mimi: I had no idea.

Lucas: Why would you? My own family doesn't even seem to remember.

Mimi: You mean they forgot?

Lucas: Yes, they forgot. But I don't care about that. That's not what's bugging me. It's Tony.

Mimi: What about him?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mickey: I know that -- that running a law firm might be a bit tricky for somebody so young, but --

Shawn-D: All right, wait -- wait a minute, wait a minute. Are you talking about me?

Mickey: No, no, actually, I wanted to see if you thought maybe Zack could handle it. Come on, of course I'm talking about you.

Shawn-D: I just don't -- I don't know what to say.

Mickey: Listen to me, Shawn. If you are serious about becoming a lawyer, okay, then I'll do everything I can to mentor you, and as soon as you finish law school, you got a place in my office if you want it, okay?

Shawn-D: Ha ha. You have no idea what this means to me, uncle Mickey, but, uh...

Mickey: But what?

Shawn-D: I'm not sure I'm the man you' looking for.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: Lemonade -- nothing like it.

Philip: Thanks, Belle.

Belle: Well, I'm really glad you decided to stay.

Philip: Like I had a choice in the matter.

Belle: Philip, things might seem really bad right now, but I have this feeling they're going to turn out to be okay.

Philip: Well, that's nice to hear, but --

Belle: Sometimes it just takes a while, but I truly believe good things happen to good people, and you are definitely a good guy.

Philip: Well, not good enough. Let's face it.

Belle: What is that supposed to mean?

Philip: Well, compared to Shawn the perfect?

Belle: What does he have to do with this?

Philip: Never mind.

Belle: No, no, Philip, I -- I don't understand. Are you angry with Shawn?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rex: Perfect. Compared to the laser that sank with the yacht, this model will be revolutionary. Tony will see how invaluable I am to the family business. He'll see --

[ Telephone rings ]

Rex: Damn it. What?

Mimi: Rex, it's me.

Rex: Mimi. Sorry. Uh, what's up?

Mimi: Tony's in the hospital. There was -- he -- he was attacked. Someone tried to kill him.

Rex: Wait -- wait -- how? I - I don't understand.

Mimi: I'm with Lucas right now in the Brady pub. He told me. He was there when it happened.

Rex: Tony --

Mimi: Okay, I'm going to be right over, okay? I'm going to leave right now.

Rex: No, no, no, just stay with Lucas, all right? Finish what I sent you to do. I'll catch up with you later.

 

Sami: Say what again?

Roman: Anything. Say anything.

Sami: Well, I -- I don't --

Roman: Look, I'm just so glad that you can talk again, I just want to hear your voice some more, all right?

Sami: Oh. Great.

Roman: Give me a hug. Look, I know it's still a strain to talk, so I don't want to hear it all that much, okay? You are taking it easy, right?

Sami: Yeah, I'm trying.

Roman: I know the doctors don't want you to overdo.

Sami: I'll be careful, I promise.

Roman: All right, but I need to ask you to talk for me right now. Do you feel up to helping us out?

Sami: Well, with what?

Roman: I'm heading up the investigation into Tony's stabbing. You're an eyewitness. Maybe you know something.

Sami: Well, I do know something.

Roman: All right. Anything you can remember that might have happened.

Sami: Okay.

Roman: God, it's good to hear you talk. You know, I'm just so glad you can talk again.

Sami: Yes, I can, and I have a lot to say.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Marlena: Can i get you something -- some coffee, soup, something?

John: You can get someone who will tell me Tony's going to be all right.

Marlena: Well, it's odd, isn't it?

John: What is?

Marlena: Well, on the Tony issue -- you and me on opposite sides.

John: Opposite sides. So what are you saying, you want Tony to die?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mickey: Wait -- wait a second. I thought you were enrolled in all those summer pre-law courses.

Shawn-D: I am. It's just, uh... I'm not going to be able to pursue a career as a lawyer until I retire from being a professional baseball player.

Mickey: I see.

Shawn-D: And don't laugh. Dot t -- I see you laughing.

Mickey: No, no. Who's laughing? I know you're a very good athlete.

Shawn-D: Well, I-I am, but I'm not that good, and I realize it's a long shot, but... it's always been a dream of mine, and I'm just not ready to give it up.

Mickey: Making it through law school is a tough proposition, Shawn, no question about it, but making it as a pro ballplayer, that --

Shawn-D: It's, you know, it's against the odds, but I come from a family that is used to beating the odds.

Mickey: Just so long as you make education your first priority.

Shawn-D: That will not change.

Mickey: It's always good to have a fallback plan.

Shawn-D: You're right.

Mickey: Yeah.

Shawn-D: Yeah. We'll see.

Mickey: Okay. Well, whatever happens, whenever it happens, if the pro ball career doesn't take off, I know you'll make a damn fine lawyer, and I'm going to help you any way I can, okay?

Shawn-D: Thank you, uncle Mickey. Your faith in me -- I just want you to know it means so much to me.

Mickey: The law profession has been very good to me, and... I'm sure that if you do want -- want to pursue it, someday, it'll be very good to you as well, not to mention the added fringe benefit that -- ahem -- lawyers -- they get the chicks.

Shawn-D: I'll, uh, factor that into my decision.

Mickey: Not -- not that you don't already have that well taken care of.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: Philip, I- I don't understand. Do you have some kind of problem with Shawn?

Philip: No. Shawn's a great guy, okay?

Belle: Yeah.

Philip: He's family, all right, and he's my best friend.

Belle: Right.

Philip: So this is not about him.

Belle: I don't -- I don't understand what's going on. All of a sudden, you bring up Shawn, and then you say you'll never be perfect like him.

Philip: No, that came out wrong, okay?

Belle: Philip, when you came back to Salem, you seemed like you had changed. You were -- you were confident and comfortable with yourself.

Philip: And what, now -- now I'm back to square one?

Belle: No, no, that's not -- that's not what I'm saying. It's just now it seems like you're confused and you don't know what you want.

Philip: I know exactly what I want. I just can't have it.

Belle: What is that supposed to mean?

Philip: Forget it, okay?

Belle: Philip, please.

Philip: Belle, I can't talk about this, okay? Not now.

Belle: Talk about what? If you have something to say to me, say it. 

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Marlena: Jo-- I-- how can you ask me that? Tony's your brother. He's Rex and Cassie's father. Why would I want -- that's just a terrible accusation.

John: I'm sorry, but you said that you and I were on opposite sides of this thing, so I just th --

Marlena: Well, what I meant was it's just very jarring to have you seeing all the positive things in Tony while I'm --

John: What?

Marlena: I- I'm just having a hard time-sharing your compassion, that's all.

John: Why is that? Has he done something I don't know about?

Marlena: No, of course not. It's the influence that he has over the twins. That upsets me a lot. And Tony can't instill in them proper values. It's not going to happen. Tony can't be any kind of role model for Rex and Cassie. He just can't --

Rex: Stop it. Don't talk about my father that way.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Sami: I know everything.

Roman: You saw the actual stabbing?

Sami: Yeah, dad, I saw the whole thing. I tried to call out a warning to Tony, but my voice wasn't strong enough, and by the time he heard me, it was too late. He turned, and the scalpel went right into his chest.

Roman: Sami, I'm sorry you had to see that.

Sami: Well, I don't understand. We know who did it. What's left to investigate?

Roman: Well, unfortunately, dead men don't talk. We know the who, what, where. We just don't know the why here, and that's what might lead us to whoever else was involved. All right. You take care of your health, okay?

Sami: Okay.

Roman: Make sure that voice gets taken care of, too.

Sami: I'll try.

Roman: All right. Later we'll talk about you coming down to the station, making a formal statement, okay?

Sami: Okay.

Roman: And anything else you remember that I should know...

Sami: Dad, if I think there is anything else you should know, I will call you right away, believe me.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: Okay, we need to back up, because I am totally confused.

Philip: Why don't we just drop it, then, okay?

Belle: No. Why can't you tell me what you can't have?

Philip: This is so not a good idea.

Belle: Look, Philip, if it's about the marines or the I.S.A., you can still talk to me about it. I might not have firsthand experience --

Philip: No, it's not that, Belle, okay? Although the work situation, as you know, is pretty bleak.

Belle: Okay, then, what is it?

Philip: Something more personal.

Belle: Is this about Chloe?

Philip: No -- no, it's not about Chloe. Belle, haven't you been paying attention at all?

Belle: Paying attention to what?

Philip: This is so stupid. I never should have brought this up. Look... just never mind, okay? Never mind. You know what? I'm just going to go, all right?

Belle: No, no, Philip. You're not going anywhere until you tell me what's going on.

Philip: Fine. I'll tell you, but you're not going to like it.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Marlena: Rex, we didn't know you were there.

Rex: I just heard about Tony. Is he...

Marlena: Uh, your father is out of surgery, but he's unconscious. It's a reaction to the anesthesia.

Rex: I need to see him.

Marlena: Of course, of course.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Lisa: Okay, another round?

Lucas: No.

Mimi: That'd be great. Thanks.

Lisa: Okay.

Mimi: So... Rex was pretty freaked out when he heard about Tony.

Lucas: Well, yeah, why wouldn't he be?

Mimi: Yeah.

Lucas: And he wasn't even there when it happened.

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Lucas: Excuse me a second.

[ Ring ]

Lucas: Hello. Mom. Thank you, thank you. No, no, I didn't think you forgot my birthday. It's just with everything going on, you know... everything going on at the hospital with Tony, I didn't think wishing me a birthday was, uh, too high on the priority list, but that's all right. Wait, no, I am not acting like anything. You're the one who keeps bringing this up. I'm totally fine with it. Can we please not do this right now? We'll -- we'll work something out, okay? We'll -- we'll -- we'll get together, we'll celebrate. Everything will be fine. I just don't want to have this conversation anymore. Yeah, we could do that. It's up to you. I don't know. Fine, that -- that sounds great. Okay. Yes, I- I love you, too. Bye.

Mimi: See, your mom didn't forget your birthday.

Lucas: No, she didn't.

Mimi: Oh, whoa, time is definitely not on my side today.

Lucas: You got to go now?

Mimi: Yeah, unfortunately.

Lucas: No, no, no, don't do that. I got it.

Mimi: No, no, no. Lucas, it's your birthday. The least I could do is spring for a beverage or two.

Lucas: Well --

Mimi: Hey, now, you have a good rest of the day. Happy birthday, and put a smile on your face. Bye.

Lucas: Bye.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mickey: Okay. Let's get back to the case at hand. I know that you're only half serious about being a pro ballplayer --

Shawn-D: No, I- I'm actually very serious. I just don't know if I'm good enough.

Mickey: All right, okay. I understand. Let -- let's say that you do make it to the pros, okay? Would you -- would you really want to be on the road nine months out of the year?

Shawn-D: Oh, yeah, yeah. Why not?

Mickey: Ha ha ha. Well, I know it's all very exciting, of course, you know, the money and the fame and everything, but if you -- if you're thinking about settling down, having a family --

Shawn-D: Yeah, right, I am at some point -- with Belle... if she'll have me.

Mickey: Oh, I don't think you have to worry about that. Whenever I see the two of you together, she is obviously very much in love with you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: Philip, I don't care if -- if I like it, don't like it, or don't even understand it. You still need to tell me what it is.

Philip: You're right, Belle. I came back from the marines a changed man. I am more focused now, I am more driven, and I am more sure of myself than I've ever been in my life, and that is what makes this so hard.

Belle: What is "this"?

Philip: Us. Our friendship.

Belle: Is our friendship in danger?

Philip: Actually, yes, it is.

Belle: Why?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rex: Look, you have to pull through this. You're strong. You can do it. I know you can. Just... don't leave me. Please.

Rex: Can he hear me?

Marlena: I think he knows you're here.

Rex: I just need to get some air.

Marlena: I'll check on him.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

John: Hey, brother. I know you can hear me. So you remember what you said to me when we were sharing that air bubble on your capsized yacht -- you know, right when we thought that this was it? You said you didn't want to leave Cassie and Rex. Well, now's your chance to prove it. You gotta fight for Cassie and Rex, Tony. You heard your boy. Come on, Tony. Get angry. I didn't save your ugly butt out there in the ocean just so you could die on me like this.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rex: If we lose him...

Marlena: We won't lose him.

Rex: I don't know what Cassie and I would do.

Marlena: Rex, if god forbid, the worst happened, you and Cassie will never be alone. I promise you, you'll never be alone again. I'm your mother. I will always, always be here for you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Roman: All right. Well, uh, I guess I better get back to work. This investigation is not going to be cut-and-dried, that's for sure.

Sami: Dad, be careful, okay? Promise me.

Roman: I will. I promise, okay? You tell your mom about this good news. You got your voice back.

Sami: Okay, I'll tell her as soon as I can.

Roman: And, Cassie, look, I am, uh, I am very sorry for what you're going through, and, uh, believe me, I do mean this -- I hope your dad pulls through.

Cassie: I know he will.

Roman: Okay.

Sami: Bye, dad. What to do, what to do. 'Cause, you see, it's a lose-lose situation for Sami. If I get to tell my mom the good news that you're not her kid, I'm forced to tell my dad the bad news that you're his.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Cassie: Why don't you just forget what you heard, and leave it alone?

Sami: You'd prefer that, wouldn't you?

Cassie: Why screw up a good thing? Everyone is happier this way.

Sami: Well, that's stretching things a bit, isn't it? Everybody? I mean, you and Rex -- you sure hit the jackpot. Heirs to the Dimera fortune. Man, having all of that snatched away from you? That would pretty much suck. No wonder you want to keep your little secret.

Cassie: I want to stay a Dimera, but it's not because of the money.

Sami: Yeah, right.

Cassie: You see, you wouldn't understand that, though, because you're just a shallow mercenary bitch, but for me, it's about pride.

Sami: Get outta my face, Cassie.

Cassie: You know, I am proud as hell to be part of the Dimera family, and I would be embarrassed and humiliated and not to mention sick to my stomach to have to call myself a Brady.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

John: Where's Rex?

Marlena: He went to find Cassie, gather himself. How's Tony?

John: Someone's in there with him now. They're going to run some more tests. We won't know anything until the morning.

Marlena: A rough day, huh?

John: Yeah, a rough day.

Marlena: Why don't i take you home and just take care of you?

John: Sounds good. Sounds real good.

 

Sami: How dare you even mention my family's name in the same sentence as the Dimeras? The Bradys are a wonderful, loving, honorable people.

Cassie: Oh, you forgot poor and uneducated.

Sami: Where do you get off being a snob, you little alien freak show conceived in some nasty little Petri dish? Who the hell do you think you are?

Cassie: At least I'm not a total screw-up like you. See, I haven't been left at the altar, like, 10 times, crying like a fool.

Sami: Shut your damn mouth.

Cassie: See, you ruin everything you touch, Samantha Brady. You can't get love right, you can't get work right. Hell, you can barely keep yourself alive.

Sami: Let me ask you a question, Cassie.

Cassie: Yeah.

Sami: Ever had your ass kicked?

Rex: Hey, hey, hey, back off! Both of you!

Cassie: [ Groans ] Rex!

Rex: What the hell is going on?

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

[ Knock on door ]

Mimi: Rex? Come out, come out, wherever you are! Odd. Oh, don't be a moron, Meems. He's probably at the hospital. I hope everything's okay there. Now, let's see. If I were... a straw swathed in precious DNA, where would I want to hide? The desk -- always a good spot. What in the world? "How Not to Ruin a Relationship." My goodness. "10 Steps to Lasting Love." Oh, I gotta take a look at this. You're kidding me. He underlined passages. Ha ha ha ha. How sweet. He really is trying.

[ Sighs ] No. No, no, no. No more snooping. We're too good for that, Mimi. He's too good for that. You know what we'll do? We'll leave him a note. Dearest Rex, the sample... is in the desk on a straw. What is this? Huh... so this is the secret project. Backwards, forwards, diagonal... it all looks the same to me. Darn, if it isn't just a tad creepola, though. I don't want to know. I don't want to know. I don't want to know. From quantum confusion to a vast collection of self-help lit. Books on love and blueprints for spacecraft. What is this man?

[ Cellular phone rings ]

[ Ring ]

Lucas: Hello? Grandma Alice. No, no, I didn't think you forgot. Thank you.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Shawn-D: So... is it that obvious that Belle and I --

Mickey: Very, very obvious that the two of you are in love. If you're trying to hide it, you're doing a lousy job.

Shawn-D: I - I guess we are, huh?

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Shawn-D: Excuse me. Hello. Dad, yeah, what's up? All right, yeah, I'm on my way.

Mickey: Hey, everything okay?

Shawn-D: Uncle Mickey, I'm sorry. We're going to have to finish this later.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Belle: So, what are you saying -- you and I -- we're not friends anymore?

Philip: No, I didn't say that.

Belle: Okay, 'cause that's what it sounded like.

Philip: Listen, Belle, our friendship is going to change, and it might not be for the better, okay? It might be for the worse. I don't know. I don't know anything anymore.

Belle: Philip, listen to me, okay? If there's one thing you can count on, it's going to be me. We've been friends forever. What could change that?

Philip: This.

(On the next Days of Our Lives)

Maya: Sorry, Shawn, baby, even if you promised me a threesome with you and your dad -- which would be really hard to turn down -- I'm still not telling.

Nicole: No, daddy. Victor, don't. Stop it. Don't do this.

Brady: Nicole, Nicole, it's okay. I'm here.

Rex: Keep your mouth shut. You're not telling Tony or Roman the truth, sister dear!
