Shawn D.: You are the sweetest little thing, aren't you? And you have nothing to complain about. You got a fresh bottle, and you're nice and clean. Now all you have to do is fall asleep. That's a tough life, isn't it?

Belle: [Chuckles] You're so good with her. I should have at least changed her.

Shawn D.: No, no, it's all right. I'm the Godfather. I can handle it. Plus, I've had plenty of practice with my little brother.

Claire: [Cooing]

Shawn D.: You really are the luckiest baby. You have the most wonderful mom in the whole world. Yes, you do. Yes, you do. And you have the bravest daddy. I mean, a Marine Corps dad -- come on. I feel bad for that boy when he asks you out on your first date.

Belle: [Chuckles]

Shawn D.: And one more thing. If I ever have a baby daughter, I hope she is as beautiful as you. And she's asleep. I think I'll put her back in the crib.

Belle: Thank you.

Shawn D.: Yeah. You are lucky to have Belle as a mom. I hope you take after her in every way.

Belle: I so hope she doesnít. What is wrong with me?

Mimi: Father Jansen told me that if I'm truly sorry and I have repented, then God would forgive me for my sins. The problem is... the problem is I can't forgive myself.

John: I knew that if I could spend some time alone with you, I could get through.

Marlena: I'm so glad you had Father Jansen come and see me. He helped me remember that our vows were taken before God and that they were sacred and eternal.


John: "What god had joined together let no man put asunder."

Marlena: That's what he said. How did you know that?

John: [Sighs]

Marlena: John? How did you know that he had said that to me?

John: Those were the last words of our wedding ceremony. That is, right before he said, "now you may kiss the beautiful bride."

Marlena: [Laughs] Oh...

John: So, what do you feel about me right now? Any more trust? Any more secure?

Marlena: I really know how much you love me.

John: I do. I love you very much.

Marlena: And you know that I have very deep feelings for you. I guess I'm just not sure it's the same kind of feelings that you have for me.

John: That only stands to reason. You don't have any memories of our past together.

Marlena: No, it's not just that.

John: What is it? Is it, uh, Alex?

Marlena: No, it isn't about that. I don't know what happened to us. I don't know why I ended up pregnant by my ex-husband.


Kate: I don't understand why you're thanking me. What did I say?

Alex: Well, you said the thing that Marlena loved most about John was his honesty... and that has convinced me that I have to take a risk.

Kate: Take a risk -- what risk?

Alex: I need to show Marlena proof that we belong together.


Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our Lives.


Marlena: John, if I loved you, how could I have made love to Roman?

John: You and Ro-- you and Roman were held prisoner in a European castle.. You both had lost hope of ever seeing your loved ones again, so you...took comfort in each other.

Marlena: How could I have done it if I were so deeply --

John: It's complicated. It's enough said that Tony and Stefano had spent their lives trying to destroy ours, and if I were to count the ways that they manipulated all of our lives, it would sound incredibly insane.

Marlena: Are they still trying to manipulate our lives?

John: No, Tony's in jail. Stefano's dead.

Marlena: Stefano. Stefano. Wasn't he referred to as the Phoenix, that mythical bird that rises from the ashes?

John: Absolutely. Do you remember that?

Marlena: I -- no, not -- not much, just the name, and... just the name. I don't remember a face or things that he'd done. John, is it at all possible that he has risen, that he really is alive out there someplace?


Shawn D.: Okay, so, Claire is down, sleeping like a baby.

Belle: I hate to wake her up and take her home.

Shawn D.: Why not just let her sleep here for the night?

Belle: Oh, no, I couldnít.

Shawn D.: You're right across the hall. If she needs something, I can come and get you. Why don't you take advantage of this opportunity to get some rest, okay?

Belle: [Breathes shakily]

Shawn D.: [Sighs] What?

Belle: You have no idea how much I want to take you up on that offer. I want you to watch the baby. [Voice breaking] I don't think that I should take her back.

Shawn D.: No, you -- no, that's -- no, you don't feel that way.

Belle: I do. No, I do. I am the worst mother in the world. I'm ruining her life, just like I ruined yours.

Shawn D.: No, that's not true.

Belle: I am a terrible mother and I am an awful friend and I am an awful wife, too.

Shawn D.: Come here. Come here.


Mimi: Father Jansen is wrong. There is no forgiveness for me. Not now, not ever.

Mary: I'm sorry, Miriam, but that just isn't true.

Mimi: [Gasps, sniffles] W-- that was strange. Hello? Is someone there? What is happening to me? What is happening --

Mary: It's all right.

Mimi: [Gasps] Who is there?!

Mary: Be still, child. It's me.

Mimi: Oh, my... no, this is not possible.

Mary: Don't be frightened, Miriam. Come over here. Sit next to me. We need to talk.

Marlena: John, are you thinking that Alex is working for DiMeraís?

John: No, it's not likely. I did a thorough background check on Dr. Alex North, and even though there are some inconsistencies, it's not like he just appeared out of nowhere.

Marlena: I'm glad to hear you say that. You know, I'm -- I'm so drawn to you. But I do want to feel safe with Alex. I just have this sense of comfort and familiarity with him.

John: Even though he is the one who put these negative thoughts in your head about me? He's got a plan for you, Marlena. I don't know what the hell it is, but it includes not having me anywhere near you.


Kate: You don't seriously believe that you can take Marlena away from John.

Alex: When I'm finished, Marlena will want to be with me. This is definitely something I have to do. I just hope I can find it in time.

Kate: Find what? Alex, what are you looking for?

Alex: I can't tell you that. But if I do find it, I'll have you to thank for giving me the idea.

Kate: Oh, no. No, I didn't say anything to help you keep Marlena away from John.

Alex: You reminded me that honesty is the key. And now I know you're absolutely right.

Kate: Okay. Well, if that's true, why don't you be honest with me? Because I find it very hard to believe that you would go to all this trouble for someone you hardly know, that you didn't know. Is this just a case of love at first sight?

Alex: [Chuckles] Well, I don't recall if it was love at first sight.

Kate: [Sighs] At some point in your therapy, you crossed over the line, and you abandoned all of your professional integrity. You decided that you wanted a future with Marlena.

Alex: Marlena is a uniquely special woman, Kate -- far more so than any other woman I've ever known. But I'm afraid that she will always be the love of John's life. But if John can't have her, he may very well be available for you.

Kate: I don't want John made available to me. I want John to be happy. You know, he told me that you came out of semi-retirement to treat Marlena, which means that there was a special reason, before you even came to Salem, before you even laid eyes on her. Oh, my God.

Alex: What?

Kate: Are you working for the DiMeraís?


Mimi: Is this really happening?

Mary: Should I pinch you?


Mimi: [Chuckles nervously] No, no, of course not. I believe you.

Mary: Good...because the most important thing is that you start believing in yourself.

Mimi: I -- I canít... because I've done too many unforgivable things. I had an abortion. And I didn't tell my boyfriend about it. And I lost the first great love of my life. And now I can't have children. So why would any man want to have anything to do with me?

Mary: You're right. Why will any man want anything to do with you? At least as long as you're wallowing in self-pity this way. You have to forget about the things that you can't have and concentrate on the things that you can have.

Mimi: And what exactly would that be?

Mary: [Laughs] Miriam, do I have to tell you everything?


Mimi: I am so glad that I finally realized that you and I could have a future together. I mean, it took a while, but I just had to stop punishing myself first before I could find true happiness.

Shawn D.: Yeah, well, we were in a tough spot there for awhile. I had just lost Belle, and you lost...what's his name. Uh...uh, Rex.

Mimi: [Laughs]

Shawn D.: That was when you found out that you couldn't have kids, but it didn't matter. We found each other. Then we fell in love. Then we got married.

Mimi: I can't believe that I thought the only way I could have a real family is if I gave birth to my kids. I mean, my mom gave birth to us, but our family wasn't exactly ideal, was it? I mean, it's nothing like what we have now. I mean, our family is just so totally real.

Shawn D.: Yeah. I think it's because we have so much love to give.

Mimi: Yes, and they have so much love to give us.

Shawn D.: Mm-hmm.

Mimi: Shawn...

Shawn D.: Hmm?

Mimi: I know that we said we'd stop at four --

Shawn D.: Well, hey, no, I would be happy if we adopted 10. We just might need to move out of the loft.

Mimi: I love you so much. You know, when I think about what our kids' lives would be like if they hadn't found us and what ours would be like... we're just all so blessed.

Shawn D.: Yes. Yes, we are.

Mimi: You know, never did I think I'd ever hear anyone say, "your daughter takes after you."

Shawn D.: But she does. such a little mother.

Mimi: You know what she said to me the other day? She said that she wants to have 10 kids when she grows up.

Shawn D.: 10. Wow, that's a lot of grandkids. But I love grandkids. I would love to have them.

Mimi: That's supposed to be my line.


Shawn D.: Well, you know, we might have to count on our little girl to carry on the name for awhile 'cause I don't think the twins are gonna settle down for a long time, not if they follow through on half the stuff they're telling us about, like joining the merchant marine and she wants to be a race-car driver and then join the Peace Corps.

Mimi: I wonder if they have any idea that our dreams for their future are even wilder than theirs. And even the baby, I swear, she's just the best. She's the smartest, most alert, the sweetest --

Shawn D.: You know, I think you say that about all our kids.

Mimi: Well, that's 'cause it's true every time.


Shawn D.: You want to know why that is?

Mimi: Because we're very lucky.

Shawn D.: That too, but... I think it's because we've been there for them every step of the way. I love you. And I thank God every day that we're together.

Mary: Shh...

Mimi: Your baby is beautiful.

Mary: [Laughs] Yes. I was so blessed to be allowed to have him as my son.


Shawn D.: You are not a terrible person, okay? I think all this self-doubt and the up-and-down emotions is because of the postpartum depression.

Belle: I don't know. I think everyone's just using that as an excuse to avoid seeing who I really am.

Shawn D.: No, that's not true. Who you really are -- you are a sweet, very sensitive, caring, loving person --

Belle: Shawn, stop it. You're just saying that because you still love me and you don't want to see my faults.

Shawn D.: I do still love you, but first and foremost, you are my friend, okay? And I want to help you through this tough time.

Belle: This shouldn't be a tough time. I am so blessed to have a beautiful, healthy baby and a loving husband.

Shawn D.: Who, not too long ago, you were not sure you wanted to spend the rest of your life with, who he, himself, has just gone through a very traumatic experience. The two of you together have now had a baby that you weren't expecting. Here, come here. I want you to sit down and relax, okay? You know, society puts, like, all these pressures on mothers to love their baby at first sight, and I just don't know how that's possible, 'cause you don't even know them yet, right? The only thing you do know is that your life has changed overnight. They sleep all the time. They don't even sleep. They cry and they eat and they make terrible messes all day long. And they don't even smile much. You know, they take and they take and they don't have the ability to give back. But, you know, that changes in time, you know? They will learn to love you, and you will learn to love being a mom.

Belle: I want to love being a mom now.

Shawn D.: I know you do. I know you do. And you will. You're gonna have a long, happy life with your daughter and your husband.

Belle: I hope you're right.

Shawn D.: Ah, well, I promise you I am.

Belle: Thank you. Thank you for wishing the best for all of us.

Shawn D.: Of course I do.

Belle: I just know how much I've hurt you.

Shawn D.: You know what? Let's -- I -- I don't want to get into that right now.

Belle: No, I understand. I just want you to know that I want you to find happiness, too.

Shawn D.: Really?

Belle: [Sighs] You sound surprised.

Shawn D.: Well, I am, a little bit. Just before you seemed dead set against me and Mimi being together. Um, then you acted very relieved when I told you that she didn't want to be with me because she cannot have children.

Belle: I was relieved, and I still am.

Shawn D.: Yeah? Well, I thought you said that you wanted me to be happy.

Belle: I do. But I'm just afraid that if you and Mimi wind up together, I could lose you forever. And I can't live without you.


Alex: I'm not working for the DiMeraís or anyone else. I'm sure if you asked John, he would tell you. He's had me thoroughly checked out. My life is an open book. Let's see....that's it. Data search end -- let's see what turns up. I don't know if I'm gonna be able to find it, but if I do find what I'm looking for, most of my questions will be answered.

Kate: I'm wondering if this isn't just another game you're playing.

Alex: I don't play games. I'm merely doing what you suggested and being completely honest. I just wish you'd do the same.


Marlena: John -- [Sighs] I can't believe that Alex is manipulating me.

John: But he has... because before he started brainwashing you, you never doubted our love. It wasn't until after you had amnesia and he came into your life.

Marlena: John, I was pregnant with Roman's child before Alex ever came on the scene. When I found out that I was pregnant, I didn't tell you. If I -- if I loved you so much, why would I keep that a secret? (Theme music playing)

Marlena: John, do -- do you think I didn't tell you about the pregnancy because I'm a dishonest person?

John: No. Most honest person I know.

Marlena: Well, then, was it because I was afraid you wouldn't understand, or was I maybe a little bit in love with roman?

John: I don't know. It was an incredibly awkward situation. Kate and I had just gotten engaged the day that you and Roman came home. And even though we broke it off, I think the longer that you took to tell us, the more difficult it became, so you kept it to yourself. And, yeah, maybe you thought that I wouldn't understand. Maybe you were right.

Marlena: I can see how awful that must have been for you and how painful it was, but it does not explain my behavior.

John: I can only assume that you were feeling guilty. I mean, breaking that kind of news can't be easy.

Marlena: Yeah. Maybe it was something else.

John: What's that?

Marlena: Maybe I was a little afraid that you loved Kate more than you loved me.


Kate: [Sighs] And what exactly is it that you think I should be honest about?

Alex: Your feelings for John. It's obvious that you're still in love with him, that you still have some very wonderful memories of your time together.

Kate: You really do think that you know everything, don't you?

Alex: I'm a psychiatrist. It's my business to be able to read interpret their body language, to know what they're thinking, what they're feeling. For instance, the way that you fold your arms, pretending to be relaxed, your occasional glance to John, Marlena, the forced smile of assurance. The body doesn't lie, Kate. I can see that you want to be with John. Admit it -- you miss feeling his arms around you. You miss feeling his body next to yours.

Kate: Well, I hate to give you the bad news, but you've been reading my body all wrong, which means you are what John and I suspected all along.

Alex: What is that?

Kate: A lousy psychiatrist.

Alex: well, hopefully, you're about to find out otherwise.

Kate: No, I don't think so. John and Marlena love each other, and I would never come between them.

Alex: You did once... without any regret. Come on, Kate, it's so unlike you to be noble. Why don't you just give it up and become my ally?

Kate: [Scoffs] Why would I do something like that?

Alex: Because if this computer gives me what I'm looking for, I will be with Marlena, you can be with John. Come on -- don't tell me you're not tempted.

Kate: [Gasping]

Alex: Like I said, Kate, the body doesn't lie. You were obviously just reliving a very nice memory. So what do you say? Will you be my ally?



Shawn D.: You're not talking about a future for the two of us.

Belle: No, no.

Shawn D.: No, I didn't think so. Look, you're never gonna lose me from your life, okay?

Belle: But if you and Mimi are together...

Shawn D.: I don't see how my being with Mimi has anything to do with you and I being friends.

Belle: Well, Philip's the one that made me see it first. I mean, with how Mimi feels about me -- she still blames me for Rex leaving her. And if the two of you are gonna be together, I'm sure she doesn't want to hang out with Philip and me.

Shawn D.: No, that's not gonna happen. I would never let it happen.

Belle: You know what? It's not just that Mimi has a hard time with me. It's Claire, too, because she can't have any kids of her own. Maybe it was a mistake to ask her to be the Godmother.

Shawn D.: No, no. It wasn't a mistake. Just -- it's gonna be all right. Just give that situation some time.

Belle: Because I would really, really hate for you to have to choose between Mimi and me. And I would hate for Claire to lose both of her Godparents. And I couldn't stand to lose you as a friend. It's really important to all of us that you're a part of our lives. And you always will be, won't you?

Shawn D.: Yes, of course I will.

Belle: Okay, because I don't think I can imagine a life without you in it.

Shawn D.: And I couldn't imagine my life without you in it. But you have to realize that, eventually, there will be another woman, even if it's not Mimi.

Belle: Of course there will.

Shawn D.: Out of all the women in my life right now, including my mom, you know me the best. You know that eventually I want to get married and start a family with the woman that I love.

Belle: I know. I just always thought that woman would be me.

Shawn D.: Yeah, but it can't be... not anymore.

Belle: Maybe it's time for me to be completely honest with you about how I feel. I want you to be happy. I -- I truly do. But I just don't think that I can stand the thought of seeing you spend the rest of your life with anyone but me.


Mimi: Do you think I can really have that kind of happy future that you showed me?

Mary: Would I have shown it to you if I didn't? But you are the only one that can ensure it, or you can continue to deny yourself and make sure it never happens.

Mimi: I just wish I could go back and change what I did.

Mary: I'm sorry, but there are no do-overs in life. Thankfully, there are second chances. So you just have to leave what happened behind you, learn from it, and move on.

Mimi: I've always tried to be a good person. I just made that one horrible mistake.

Mary: I know. Shh... and so does God. And he forgives you, Miriam.

Mimi: Are you sure?

Mary: Of course -- that's what he does. If God didn't forgive sin, heaven would be a pretty empty place. Now, all that remains is for you to forgive yourself. Do you think you can do that?


Kate: No. No, I won't be your ally. I won't help you plot just to get John back. Yes, we were intimate because we thought Roman and Marlena were dead. And we grieved for months and months, and we consoled each other. But John believed that Marlena was out of his life. But I knew she would always be a part of his heart. But still, we clung to each other. We clung to each other because that's all we had.

Alex: I heard John wouldn't have made it through without you.

Kate: I helped him through a very difficult time.

Alex: And that was enough for you because you loved him so much. But I still find it a little impossible to believe that the two of you just all of a sudden looked at each other and said, "oops. They're back. Here's your engagement ring. Goodbye."

Kate: I never said that it was an easy thing to break off with him.

Alex: Well, I'm glad that you are able to be there for him again. And John's heart needn't be broken for long. If I accomplish what I'm after, if I get the information that I am waiting for, then Marlena will no longer be with John, even if she gets her memory back. And John will be free for you. And we can all live happily ever after.



Marlena: John, this is just so frustrating for me, and maybe I shouldn't be trying to work it out right now, but... you and Kate were living together. And you got engaged. Maybe I was a little bit afraid that -- that you loved her and that you wanted her... more than you wanted me.

John: No, you had to know. You always knew that you were my life. And Kate and I got together because we thought that you were dead.

Marlena: You got together. You know, roman and I weren't even gone that long. I just -- I don't know that people get engaged just because they got together. John... were you in love with Kate?


Belle: I can't even believe I'm saying this. How could I be so selfish?

Shawn D.: No, you're just being honest. Come on, let's face it. You and I ain't getting out of this life without always loving a part of each other.

Belle: I don't think anyone could love me the way I am now.

Shawn D.: Stop saying that, okay? Philip loves you, and Claire loves you..

Belle: And you?

Shawn D.: You know how I feel.

Belle: I shouldn't be asking you these questions. I'm sorry. I don't want you to feel sorry for me.

Shawn D.: No, I donít. You are gonna have a wonderful life. You're gonna be okay.

Belle: So are you.

Shawn D.: Yeah. Yeah. I think so. You know, for awhile there, I wasn't sure, but now I think I'll be fine.

Belle: Shawn... what I said earlier -- I meant it, but I didnít. It's just really hard for me. It's really hard for me. You know, if I can't be with you, I have to let you go. It's my decision, and I have to live with it as much as you do. But I don't want you to be alone.

Shawn D.: I won't be. You know, for awhile, I thought things were gonna work out with Mimi, but even if they don't --

Belle: Come on, you know her as well as I do. She's made up her mind. She's never gonna change it.

Shawn D.: Yeah. Well, she has made her decision. Even though I don't agree with it, I know I have to accept it. Just like I have to accept the fact that you and I will never be together.


Mimi: I guess I've learned that before I can ask for forgiveness, then I have to be truly sorry. And to be truly sorry requires humility beyond any low point I've ever felt. And I feel that now.

Mary: What else?

Mimi: That if I am repentant but don't believe in or accept God's forgiveness, then it's like I've decided my decision is more important than his. And I have to love myself before I can expect anyone else to love me, right? Before I can do anything useful with my life.. And I'm getting there. Thank you. Thank you so much.

Mary: So do you think you can forgive yourself now?

Mimi: Yes.

Mary: Then do it. Just do it.

Mimi: Was that a dream or... thank you...for helping me realize that I can forgive myself... and that maybe I will find happiness with Shawn after all.


Kate: I already told you, Alex, I'm not going to be party to anything that might come between John and Marlena.

Alex: Fine. I really don't need your help anyway, Kate. But I do want you to think long and hard about the fact that, whether you have anything to do with this or not, John is going to be a free man and ripe for the taking. Now, if you'll excuse me... got it -- exactly what I need. Marlena, you are mine.


Marlena: John? John... I -- I really do need an answer. Were you in love with Kate?

John: Yes, I was.

Marlena: And are you in love with her now? Don't! Don't -- don't hurry your answer, okay? Just take some time and think about it and really see what's in your heart. And then I'd like you to tell me if you're still in love with Kate.


Jennifer: It's almost like he handpicked you to take his place.

Frankie: He did.



Lexie: Your condition has worsened even since the last time I saw you.


Mimi: There can be somebody after Rex.

Shawn D.: What do you mean -- me?


Alex: I'm glad to hear you're reserving judgment because I have the proof you're looking for. John's been lying to you.
