Lexie: There you are. Ha-ha ha.

Abe: I was trying to be quiet. I'm sorry.

Lexie: Oh, well, as you can see, we're awake.

Abe: Ha-ha ha ha.

Lexie: Theo was asleep, but he started crying, so I decided to bring him downstairs.

Abe: Ah. Well, I'm sorry I'm so late.

Lexie: Well, I was afraid we weren't going to see you at all, honey.

Abe: Ha ha ha. Well, I've been swamped, you know, with the investigation into the attack on Bo and Hope, and now with the Colin Murphy murder case being reopened.

Lexie: Any progress?

Abe: No. You know what? I don't even want to talk about work. I want to spend some time -- yes -- with you, with my wife and son. Oh, yeah. So how you doing, big guy, huh? Have you been waiting up for your daddy, huh?

Lexie: Oh, honey, uh, this came for you today.

Abe: Ah. Registered letter?

Lexie: Yeah, it's from Brandon. It's marked "open immediately."

Abe: Here you go. Yes.

Lexie: I hope nothing's wrong.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Sami: This is the way that it should be, just like I should be with Brandon. I'm going to get my parents back together, and I'm going to get Brandon back, I swear it.

[ Telephone rings ]

[ Ring ]

Sami: Hello?

Woman: Am I speaking to Samantha Brady?

Sami: Yeah, this is Samantha.

Woman: Ms. Brady, my name is Nancy Fedelhorn. I'm Brandon Walker's attorney.

Sami: Oh, my god, is he there? Oh, oh, please, just tell him -- tell him how sorry I am, and tell him that I think that we can really work this out. Just -- just put him on the phone. Let me talk to him.

Nancy: Mr. Walker is not present, nor does he want to have any direct communication with you, Ms. Brady.

Sami: What? You are lying because you just don't want me to talk to Brandon.

Nancy: I am simply following Mr. Walker's instructions. The reason for my call is to find out if you've signed and returned the annulment papers.

Nancy: Ms. Brady?

Sami: No, I haven't signed them, and I am not going to because it's not necessary. My husband is coming back to me.

Nancy: I assure you that will not happen, Ms. Brady.

Sami: Stop calling me Ms. Brady. My name is  Mrs. Walker. Put Brandon on the phone, or just tell me how I can reach him.

Nancy: If you don't sign the papers and return them to our office immediately, you'll be receiving a subpoena, and we'll settle this in a courtroom.

[ Dial tone ]

Sami: [ Groans ] Damn her. She's just doing this because she probably wants Brandon for herself. Well, that is not going to happen! Brandon, I know that you still love me. If I could just see you and talk to you, I could show you how we were meant to be together.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Sami: Brandon?

Sami: Oh.

Belle: Sami, are you okay?

Sami: No, Belle, I am not okay, and I never will be again.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Kate: Sami? You're hiring Sami?

John: Yeah, that's who I was talking to you about.

Marlena: John, that's so wonderful. It will mean so much to Sami to know the kind of faith you have in her.

Roman: John, are, uh, are you sure about this?

John: Pretty sure, yeah.

Roman: Well, that's, uh... that's very generous of you to give Sami a chance, so, uh, thank you.

John: Don't thank me. Thank Kate.

Marlena: Kate?

John: Yes, she is the one who changed my mind about hiring Sami. Kate's responsible.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Hope: Getting hit on the head must have affected my hearing, because I could have sworn I just heard you say you were going out to find our attacker alone.

Bo: That's exactly what I said. Let's go to bed.

Hope: Don't change the subject. First of all, I thought we were letting Zack stay at the pub with your parents while we were looking for our attacker. And second, how could you even consider such a thing?

Bo: Think about it for a minute.

Hope: There is nothing to think about. What?

Bo: Hope, wait a minute. Before you go off on a --

Hope: No, you wait a minute. You wait a minute. I am an equal partner in our business and in our marriage, and if you think I'm going to be sitting at home knitting while you're out putting your life at risk chasing after some guy who tried to kill us, you have got another think coming, Brady.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

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

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Abe: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. This is great.

Lexie: What is it? What does it say?

Abe: Hey, your big brother's going to send you a horse. Yeah. Ha ha ha ha ha.

Lexie: A horse?

Abe: Relax. It's a wooden horse. Seems Brandon has a friend who carves big wooden rocking horses.

Lexie: Oh.

Abe: And he ordered us one. He did. He just wanted to warn us before some kind of huge box showed up on our doorstep. Yeah, he did.

Lexie: Aw, that's very sweet. I'm sure Theo's going to love it. Ha ha ha.

Abe: Well, it's his way of being part of Theo's life. I wasn't sure he'd make the effort.

Lexie: But he is. I'm impressed.

Abe: You know, I have so much to be thankful for -- a beautiful wife...

Lexie: Oh, honey.

Abe: Ha ha ha ha ha. Two sons... yeah, yeah. I almost feel guilty about wanting more someday. I would love to have another child -- a little girl who's just like her mama.

Lexie: Yeah, yeah, me too. Someday. Right now, I just want to concentrate on our beautiful little baby. Yes, you. Yes, you. You're precious.

Abe: You know... yeah. With, uh, everything that's gone on at work, I just feel happy and lucky. Everything's right with the world when you're in love, huh?

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

John: Kate said something very simple to me, and it had an impact. She said nothing is more important than love. Now, I am doing this because you asked me to, Doc, simply because I love you so much.

Marlena: Oh. Oho-o-ho-ho. Oh, I love you, too. I love you, too. Kate, thank you so much. I will explain to Sami that you were a big part of her getting the job, and that -- and that you went to bat for her. She'll be so touched.

Kate: Well, I mean, I really didn't --

John: Oh, come on. Take a little credit. You know, if it weren't for you, I never, never would have hired Sami.

Kate: Well, that really warms my heart. Ha-ha. Um, I think we need to talk about this.

John: Great. Now's a good time. Let's go.

Kate: In private?

John: Sure, sure. Excuse us for a second?

Marlena: Mm-hmm.

Roman: Absolutely. No problem.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Marlena: This could be the turning point in Sami's life. You realize that, don't you?

Roman: Yeah. I just hope that she, uh, focuses on her work and somehow stays out of trouble.

Marlena: Roman, I know that you're skeptical about Sami sometimes, but I think as long as John is on board, I-I think you could afford to be a little more optimistic. She is your daughter, and, um... well, I think if she doesn't have you believing in her, it could be very destructive for her.

Roman: All right, Doc. I promise I will try to be optimistic, all right? I just... I'm just kind of surprised that John hired her.

Marlena: I know. I am, too. When I asked him about it, he was -- he was dead set against the idea.

Roman: And Kate is the one that talked him into it. That's even more surprising.

Marlena: Well, I don't know. I think Kate meant it for you and for John and -- and for me. We're mighty lucky.

Roman: Yeah, yeah. We are that.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Kate: [ Sighs ] How could you do this to me?

John: Easy. Calm down.

Kate: No, you weren't honest with me. You never told me who you were talking about hiring.

John: Well, now, I would have, but you said it didn't really matter, remember?

Kate: Oh, come on. You know it would matter if it was Sami.

John: Oh, I knew that you were a professional, and you would deal with it, and I know you will.

Kate: Oh, I- I don't believe this.

John: Come on. It's going to be fine.

Kate: It's only going to be fine if we never see each other, if you keep us completely apart from each other at all times.

John: Now how am I going to do that? You agreed to supervise her. I'm going to hold you to that offer.

Kate: You can't be serious.

John: Congratulations on your new employee, Kate.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Sami: Um... ha-ha. I'm sorry, um... I didn't mean to freak out like that when you opened the door. I just, um... I thought -- I thought you might be Brandon.

Belle: What's this?

Sami: Um, those are annulment papers from Brandon.

Belle: Oh, my god, Sami. I'm sorry. I'll just put them on the table.

Sami: Oh, no. I got it.

Belle: Sami.

Sami: Um, sorry, Belle. It's just that, you know, it's, um, personal, private stuff between me and Brandon.

Belle: Okay, well, um, if now's a bad time, we could come back later.

Sami: It's fine. I-I got, um, great-grandma's chest all ready for you.

Sami: Are you sure you still want to give it to me?

Sami: Of course. I'm happy to, Belle. You know will -- he's growing up so fast, and -- and he has all this stuff now, you know, a computer and sports stuff and video games, and so I promised him that by the time he came home from camp, I would have his room cleaned out for him.

Belle: Ha-ha. You know, my great-grandfather made this chest for my great-grandmother as a symbol of their love.

Shawn-D: It's beautiful.

Belle: Yeah. My mom and grandmother go on and on about it all the time. It was my great-grandparents' first wedding anniversary, and they didn't have a lot of money, so he made this chest for her, to put a quilt in it that they got as a wedding present. She absolutely cherished that quilt, but then he found out she sold the quilt so she could buy him an anniversary present.

Shawn-D: I think I've heard of a story like that.

Belle: "The Gift of the Magi" -- a true and lasting love.

Shawn-D: Oh. And we all know that's your favorite kind.

Belle: Well, we come from a line of great loves, don't we? Your mom and dad, mine... you know, I used to be really embarrassed about how much my parents loved each other, about how affectionate they are in public -- but now I'm beginning to appreciate it.

Shawn-D: That John and Marlena -- they're an amazing couple.

Sami: Stop it, okay? Just stop!

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

John: Thank you. You know, Kate, it's kind of like this -- you and I, we're in the same boat together here. I mean, you're involved with Sami's dad, I'm married to her mom, and she's going to be in our life whether we like it or not, so I suggest we just make the best of it.

Kate: There's no way to make the best of this. I'm telling you, John, if she comes to Basic Black, she's going to destroy it just the way she destroys everything else she comes into contact with.

John: Oh, come on. You're exaggerating.

Kate: No, no, no, no. We have to find a way to get out of this. I mean, just tell her that --

John: We cannot go back on our word. Number one, Sami is my stepdaughter, and I care about her. Number two, we've made Roman and Marlena very happy, and I, for one, am not going to take that happiness away. Are you?

Marlena: You know, when the kids were small, I know we -- we thought once they were grown, we'd never have to worry about them again.

Roman: Ha ha ha. That is never going to happen, Doc.

Marlena: No, it's not. I can see how Shawn and Caroline worry about you, and I know my parents worry about me.

Roman: Yeah, the sad thing is, though, our Sami has given us a whole lot more to worry about than we ever did them.

Marlena: Yeah. I'm so glad you were there for us during all those rough times.

Roman: I'll always be there. I mean, it's a permanent bond, isn't it? Having kids together.

Marlena: Yes, it is. And even though we've both moved on, I'm glad we'll always have that bond.

Roman: Same here.

Marlena: Kate's a wonderful woman. I'm so glad you found love.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Bo: You almost die-- you did die, Hope, and for some reason, that terrifying moment is kind of burned into my brain. The sound of that heart monitor telling me that your heart had stopped. Watching the doctor with the -- he's trying to get your heart going again. Then he turns to me and tells me you're gone. I can't let that -- I will not let that happen again.

Hope: Don't you get it, Brady? They almost took me away from you and our boys. That's why this fight is just as much mine as it is yours, so save your breath.

Bo: All that matters to me is that nothing happens to you and our boys. I will do everything I can to make sure that you don't get hurt ever again.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Belle: Sami, I'm sorry. We shouldn't have been going on and on like that when you and Brandon --

Sami: No, it's all right, Belle. I just don't want to talk about it, okay?

Shawn-D: Yeah, well, why don't we get this chest loaded up, huh?

Sami: Good idea. Yeah. It was kind of a production getting it out here.

Shawn-D: No, I'm sure we can handle it.

Belle: Here, no, I'll get it.

Sami: No, no, Belle. I can do it.

Belle: You're not mad at me for being so insensitive, are you?

Sami: No. No, Belle, I'm fine. In fact, I totally believe in what you were saying, that some couples are destined to be together, and -- and that's it, you know? I totally believe that Brandon and I are meant to be together, and that he is going to come back to me.

Lucas: Oh, don't hold your breath, Sami.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Hope: Listen, Brady, just because your testosterone level is higher than mine doesn't give you the right to act like you're the only one in the family who can mix it up.

Bo: I know you can -- that is not the issue.

Hope: Okay, then what is the issue?

Bo: How many times do I -- I will not risk you getting hurt.

Hope: I have been taking the risk of you getting hurt day after day, year after year.

Bo: Oh, come on.

Hope: And now maybe you know a little bit of what I have been going through all these years.

Bo: How did -- oh, my -- you turn things around every time.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Roman: Well, Doc, as you know, for the longest time, I didn't think that there could be anybody else for me. But also, as you know, when Kate and I first got together, it was like oil and water, or more like gasoline and a match.

Marlena: Nothing makes sparks fly like friction.

Roman: Yeah, well, those sparks turned into a 4-alarm fire. I love Kate, and I think it's the real deal. I just have to convince Kate.

Marlena: Are you having a hard time doing that?

Roman: Well, there's something -- something in her past that just won't allow her to believe in the two of us.

Marlena: Yes, I know.

Roman: You do? Well, tell me.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Kate: I don't want to hurt Marlena or Roman, either, but there has to be some way that we can get out of this.

John: So what do you suggest, hmm?

Kate: Gee, I don't know. Maybe we should open another division of Basic Black and let Sami run it -- say, what, I don't know, in Outer Mongolia?

John: [ Laughs ] Nah. Nah, Sami has Will. She'd never leave Salem.

Kate: No, of course not, because that would be much too easy.

John: That's right. I guess we're just going to have to live with it.

Kate: [ Sighs ] John, I don't know how.

John: Treat her like any other employee.

Kate: But she's not like any other employee. She is a lying, conniving, manipulative little bitch who hates me.

John: No, she's a lying, conniving, manipulating little bitch who works for you.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

[ Chuckles ]

Abe: Well, a little lullaby and he's out like a light.

Lexie: Honey... what is it? What's wrong?

Abe: Theo.

Lexie: What --

Abe: I mean, he's -- he's -- he's lying there in his crib, and he's so tiny and innocent, completely trusting. I'd move heaven and earth to keep him happy and safe. If anybody ever tried to hurt him, I'd tear them apart with my own hands.

Lexie: Oh, honey, of course you would. So would I. That's what parents do, right?

Abe: I didn't do that for Brandon. You know, I wasn't there when Paul Mendez was using him for a punching bag. He was just a little boy. And his childhood, his whole life, his -- it would have been different if I'd known, if I'd been there.

Lexie: Abe, you didn't know. How could you have? Brandon understands that now.

Abe: I'm not sure he does.

Lexie: Abe, honey, you can't change the past.

Abe: You know, I-I want to make it up to him. I- I want him to have a good life.

Lexie: And he will. He has a wonderful father now, and as much as you miss him and wish that he lived closer to us, he made the best decision of his life when he decided to get away from Sami. I happen to think he's off to a pretty good start.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Sami: Thanks for the support, you big jerk. "Uh, don't hold your breath."

Belle: You know, Lucas, that wasn't really nice.

Lucas: Brandon sent over the annulment papers. You can call me crazy, but I don't think that's a very good sign.

Sami: Well, I don't care what you think.

Belle: Oh, um, the key for the chest -- where -- I'll --

Sami: Oh, it's got a little gold ribbon in it. It's right inside the door.

Belle: I'm gonna grab that.

Shawn-D: Listen, why don't you get Sami in here to calm down? I'll talk to Lucas, try and find out something about Rex and Tony.

Belle: Okay.

Sami: I don't care what your facts are --

Shawn-D: Lucas, hey, listen why don't you help me get the chest into Belle's car?

Belle: Yeah, Sami gave this to me for my apartment.

Lucas: Great. Sure. I'll lend a hand.

Belle: And Sami, let's go inside. We'll leave the moving duties up to them.

Sami: Yes, very good idea.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Shawn-D: So, uh, do you go to the Titan gym, or are you working out at the Dimera mansion?

Lucas: Both.

Shawn-D: Oh.

Lucas: Yeah.

Shawn-D: Well, where did you work out tonight?

Lucas: At the mansion. Why?

Shawn-D: Ah, no, I was just curio.. I was wondering if you ever worked out with Rex before.

Lucas: No, never.

Shawn-D: How's Tony? Is he all recovered from his coma?

Lucas: Look, Shawn, I'm not stupid, all right? I know what you're trying to do. Hope is my cousin, and I was really upset about what happened to her and Bo. I was as upset as anybody. But Tony didn't have anything to do with what happened at that fashion show.

Shawn-D: Yeah, are you sure?

Lucas: Positive.

Shawn-D: All right, well, what about Rex?

Lucas: Rex?

Shawn-D: Yeah, Rex.

Lucas: I don't know, man. That kid's a trip, you know? He's a tough one to figure out. He's intense, but in a weird way. I just don't think, uh, Tony's son would do something like that. Now, look, I'll help you with this chest, but no more questions. I don't want to talk about Tony or his family.

Shawn-D: Yeah, that's fine.

Lucas: Good.

Shawn-D: Then how about your relationship with Sami?

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Belle: I'm really sorry about what Lucas said.

Sami: It's okay. You know, I don't care what Lucas thinks. Belle, I'm glad that you and Shawn are happy.

Belle: Yeah, but I want you to be happy, too. And I know you're going through a really tough time right now, and you miss Brandon, but in time --

Sami: Don't say it. Don't say that in time I'll find someone else, or that there are other fish in the sea. Brandon is the one.

Belle: That's what you said about Austin, too.

Sami: Okay, well, I was wrong about Austin. I wanted Austin. Well, I need Brandon. He -- he completes me. We connect in a way that I never thought possible. Look, with Brandon, I found out what it's like to be with your perfect match. He's my soul mate. You know what that's like.

Belle: Yeah, I do.

Sami: And I know that Brandon feels the same way. I know that he loves me. That's why he can't see me or talk to me, because he knows that if he gets close to me, he won't be able to fight it. He'll cave, and that's why I have to get to him. I have to talk to him. All I need is a chance.

Belle: Have you tried calling him?

Sami: I don't have his number, Belle. I don't have his address or any way of reaching him. And his stupid lawyer calls, and she sa t that he wants me to sign the annulment papers. She won't even let me talk to him.

Belle: I've got it.

Sami: What?

Belle: I know how you can get a hold of him.

 UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Bo: [ Muttering ] Testosterone. What kind of an argument is that? Ow!

Hope: Ow!

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Kate: I don't know. I don't know if I can do this. I mean, just the thought of coming to work every day and having to see her, much less work for her, just --

John: Ah, come on. Just do it for me and Doc. And if that doesn't work, do it for Roman.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Roman: What do you know about Kate? Why is she having a hard time committing to me?

Marlena: Well, Roman, you know I would never betray a confidence, but there's nothing really to betray here. Kate has said to me on several occasions that she's haunted by something in her past. But she's been unwilling to open up about what that is.

Roman: I see. And it's probably not a good idea for me to push her to talk about it.

Marlena: I wouldn't suggest it, no. Just let her know that you're there for her.

Roman: All right, all right, but I'm going to tell her this, too. I'm going to make it very clear that I'm not going to let her past, or anything or anybody, keep us from being together.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Lucas: Give it up, Shawn. Forget it.

Shawn-D: Forget what?

Lucas: I'm not going to talk about my relationship with Sami.

Shawn-D: Relationship. There we go. So you two, you are...

Lucas: No, we're not. We have a kid together, all right? That's our connection. It doesn't go beyond that point. We have a kid together, and I love him. He is the best thing that's ever happened to me. I wouldn't change that for the world. But as far as having a baby before you're ready, I really don't recommend it. You should be careful.

Shawn-D: Yeah. Well, I don't think Belle and I are going to have that problem.

Lucas: Well, good. Good for you. At least Belle's nothing like Sami.

Shawn-D: Ah, I wouldn't say that. I mean, there has to be some similarities. They are sisters.

Lucas: Yeah, Belle's down to earth and sensible. That's not Sami.

Shawn-D: Well, Belle also had a better childhood than Sami did, so there's --

Lucas: I am so sick of that excuse. Aren't you, man? "I had a bad childhood, so I'm gonna make everybody else's life miserable"? What is that?

Shawn-D: Well, Sami's life has been miserable lately. I mean, don't you feel the least bit sorry for her?

Lucas: Nope. Not at all.

Shawn-D: Well, she's pretty broken up over those annulment papers.

Lucas: That's the smartest thing Brandon Walker ever did.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Sami: You know where Brandon is? Tell me, Belle.

Belle: Hold it, hold it. I didn't say I know where Brandon is. I said I know how you can get a hold of him, because I know someone who knows where he is.

Sami: Well, tell me. Go. Who?

Belle: Abe. I heard mom talking about how Abe and Brandon are trying to work out the whole father/son thing long distance, so I think if you tell Abe how you feel, it might help. I don't know. He's like a second father to you, right?

Sami: Well, yeah, except for the fact that I think Lexie has turned him against me.

Belle: Oh, come on. Abe is his own person. He can make his own decisions. Besides, he's your dad's best friend. Wouldn't he want to help you?

Sami: I guess.

Belle: What have you got to lose? All you're gonna do is ask Abe to put in a good word for you. And then, even better, if Brandon hears your voice, he'll realize how much he's in love with you.

Sami: You're right. I don't have anything to lose.

Belle: So next time Abe talks to Brandon, maybe he can just hand the phone over to you.

Sami: Oh, my god, Belle, Belle, that would be perfect.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Abe: You know, there was a time that the idea of my son marrying Roman's daughter -- I would have liked that very much. I mean, Roman's been my best friend and partner for I donít know how many years.

Lexie: Long time.

Abe: [ Laughs ] Yeah.

Lexie: Yeah.

Abe: Long time. Sami, Carrie, Eric are like family to me. The Brady family joining the carver family -- boy, I would have enjoyed that so much.

Lexie: Except for the fact that Sami turned out the way she did.

Abe: Sami does have a lot of problems. And unfortunately, she doesn't seem to be getting any better.

Lexie: Mnh-mnh.

Abe: And Roman, Marlena, and John -- I mean, all the Bradys -- they've done everything they can think of.

Lexie: Okay, enough. I don't want Sami to spoil our evening.

Lexie: Thankfully, she is out of our lives.

Abe: Mm.

Lexie: And out of Brandonís.

Abe: Speaking of Brandon, why don't we call him and thank him for the gift?

Lexie: Yeah, let's do that.

Abe: Okay.

Lexie: And tell him that he has to come and visit soon so he can actually see his little brother on that rocking horse, okay?

Abe: You tell him yourself.

Lexie: Okay.

Abe: I'll pick up the cordless, all right?

Lexie: All righty. Hurry. Hurry, hurry.

Abe: Hey. Hey, Brandon. It's your dad.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Maggie: Well, I understand there is a small celebration in order.

Roman: Well, yeah, Maggie, I guess there is.

Maggie: Well, here's four glasses for the toast.

Roman: How'd you know?

Maggie: Oh, word travels fast in these parts. I think it was very nice of you, John, to offer Sami a chance.

John: Well, thank you, Maggie.

Maggie: Well, I'll leave you to your toast. Enjoy.

Roman: All right, thanks again.

Marlena: Good friends. Ooh. Good man.

John: My sweet.

Marlena: Yes.

Roman: All right, well, here's a toast. To John and Kate -- what they did for love.

John: Hear, hear.

Marlena: Hear, hear.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Belle: So I think you should call Abe right now.

Sami: Well, he probably is home from work. No.

Belle: What, you're not going to call him?

Sami: I'm -- I'm gonna go see him.

Belle: Oh.

Sami: Yeah, I think that it would be harder for him to say no to me in person, right?

Belle: You're probably right.

Sami: I'm gonna go talk to him right now, face to face.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Lucas: Look, Sami's her own worst enemy, all right? She never knows when to quit, and she never learns. And as soon as she gets her hooks into a guy, he can't get away fast enough, man. He's lucky to get away with his life.

Shawn-D: Well, that's her insecurity. She hangs on for dear life because she's afraid of being rejected.

Lucas: Whatever. I don't care. Who really cares?

Shawn-D: I'm just saying that --

Lucas: No, you're making excuses for her, because she's Belle's sister. But as far as I'm concerned, she's nothing but trouble, man. She's never gonna change -- ever.

Shawn-D: Well, don't you think that's a little harsh?

Lucas: No, I donít. It's the truth. Sami is single-handedly responsible for reducing the male population in Salem. Austin's gone, Brandon's gone, and let me tell you something -- I'd be gone, too, if it wasn't for will. What?

Sami: What, your life is so pathetic that you have to rip into me behind my back? Of course, what should I expect with a mother like Kate?

Lucas: You leave my mother out of this. I mean it.

Sami: I am gonna get Brandon back, and everything else that I want, and you and your witchy mother are gonna end up with what you deserve, which is nothing.

Lucas: Do you believe that? Do you believe she said that huh? Who'd want to be with that?

Belle: Hopefully, Brandon. 

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Bo: I didn't --

Hope: I --

Bo: It wasn't the --

Hope: It wasn't --

Bo: Go ahead. You first.

Hope: No, no. You.

Bo: Aw, hell. Talking's overrated.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Marlena: Maggie, thank you.

Maggie: Oh, my pleasure.

John: It was great as usual. Thanks.

Roman: Yeah, Maggie, thank you very much.

Kate: It was really delicious.

Maggie: Well, I'm glad you liked it. And I'll see you all soon, I hope.

Kate: Good night.

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Roman: Oh, excuse me. Captain Brady. All right, all right. Well, don't do anything until I get there. Yeah. Bad timing.

Kate: The station, I take it.

Roman: Yeah, I got to get back to work. I'm sorry.

Kate: That's okay. I'm getting used to it.

John: You need a ride?

Kate: No, that's okay. I have my car.

Roman: Well, I'll see you later, sweetheart. John, thanks again for everything.

John: Anytime.

Kate: Hey, I'll walk you out.

Roman: Okay.

Kate: Good night.

Marlena: Good night. Ah... you did such a wonderful thing tonight.

John: Well, I'd like to think that's because I'm wonderful. Ha ha ha.

Marlena: You are. And when I get you home, I'll be thanking you properly.

John: Race you to the car.

Marlena: Oh!

John: Ha ha ha ha!

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Belle: You just can't stop yourself, can you, Lucas?

Lucas: What?

Belle: Well, every chance you get, you'll badmouth my sister. It's your favorite pastime, isn't it?

Lucas: Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Are you kidding me? Did you hear what she said? You hear what she said about my mother?

Belle: That's only because she was hurt by what you said.

Lucas: You know what? You two are making excuses for her. Sami is never going to change because her family accepts her no matter how badly she behaves.

Belle: Lucas, Sami's going through a really rough time right now.

Lucas: Well, Belle, it's about to get a hell of a lot rougher. I don't know what to tell you. Brandon is never coming back. She's got to get used to that. Excuse me. Good night.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Belle: God, I really hope my idea works, and Lucas has to eat his words.

Shawn-D: What idea?

Belle: Well, in convinced Sami to talk to Abe to see if he'll intervene with Brandon on her behalf.

Shawn-D: You did what?

Belle: Is that some kind of problem?

Shawn-D: Yeah. I can't believe you got sucked in by Sami.

Belle: Sucked in? Sami's my sister.

Shawn-D: Yes, I know she's your sister, and I know you care about her very much, but you got to stay out of it, 'cause anytime you interfere in Sami's life, you just end up getting hurt.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Sami: I am going to prove Lucas so wrong. I will get Brandon back. I will show him.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Kate: I can't believe my luck -- Sami working at Basic Black. This is not going to work.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Sami: I'm going to convince Abe to talk to Brandon, and then everything will be okay again, because Brandon is going to realize how much he loves me, and he's gonna come back to me. And if he doesn't -- no. No, I'm not gonna think like that. I can't, because I'm going to get Brandon back. I know I am.

Sami: Aah!

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Lexie: It's such a perfect gift, Brandon. I'm sure Theo will love it.

Abe: Ha ha. You know, what your little brother would love even more is for his big brother to deliver that rocking horse in person. Yeah. Well, I understand, and I admire you for it.

Lexie: Yeah, yeah, Brandon, it is very courageous of you. It's a wonderful cause.

Abe: Children who've been through war -- who could use your help more? I'm very proud of you for wanting to do it.

Lexie: How long will you be gone?

Abe: Well, can you at least come home first?

Lexie: Yeah, Brandon, I agree with you. I think it's best that you stay as far away from Salem as possible. You deserve so much more than Sami Brady.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

[ Horn honking ]

Sami: [ Panting ] Oh, god. Oh, god, I've hit somebody. Oh, please be okay. Please be okay.

[ Honking continues ]

Sami: I'm so sorry. I'm so -- oh, god. Oh, god.

[ Honking stops ]

Sami: [ Gasps ] Kate?

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

(On the next Days of Our Lives)

Kate: Tomorrow I have to go to work with Sami.

Roman: Hey, don't say it.

Kate: I'm really afraid it's the beginning of the end.

Sami: Why are you trying to ruin my life? I hate both of you, and I hope you both go to hell!

Alice: Is there something you're trying to tell me?

Celeste: I don't want to upset you.

Lexie: Mom, for heaven's sake, tell us.

Celeste: You're going to die.
