[Thunder rumbling]

Mimi: Hey, Shawn? Are you home yet? It's getting nasty out there. But nothing is going to spoil our date tonight. We'll start with some wine here. And then who knows?

Shawn D.: Hey. What's up?

Mimi: Hey. How was your day?

Shawn D.: Oh, it was so busy. Business is actually picking up. We did a couple oil changes, lube jobs. Worked on this transmission on this old Dodge. It's great.

Mimi: Cool.

Shawn D.: I don't want to get grease all over you. It's a nice jacket. I don't want to ruin it. I'll jump in the shower right now 'cause I am beat.

Mimi: Beat.

Shawn D.: [Exhales deeply]

[Door closes]

[Thunder crashes]


Philip: Okay.

Belle: Are you sure you don't need some help?

Philip: Get out of here. You can help me, all right. Just come over here and sit down and get ready to relax and enjoy this amazing meal that I'm preparing. We are having some arugula salad. We're having Italian seafood risotto with Puccini mushrooms. You ordered this one time at Chez

Rouge -- never stopped talking about it -- and I remember.

Belle: I know, but it's a lot of work.

Philip: Nothing's too much work for you. It's okay.

Belle: It smells good.

Philip: Mm-hmm. And if it'll kick you out of this little postpartum slump, then it'll -- ow! Ow!

Belle: Philip, are you okay? What's wrong? What?


[Thunder crashes]

Billie: Hey.

Frankie: Hey.

Billie: What are you doing sitting outside? The ice storm's about to hit..

Frankie: I was just thinking, clearing my head. Are you looking for Jack?

Billie: Chelsea. I thought she might be here, but her car isn't out front. She told me she was going out with Abby, but she's not answering her cellphone. With the storm coming, I'm afraid the roads will be slick.

Frankie: She's probably on her way home.

Billie: More than likely, they'd come here.

Frankie: I don't think Abby's called, but you can ask Jack and Jen.

Billie: No. No. No. I don't want to worry them just yet. They've got a lot on their minds as it is. I'm sure the girls will be here any minute, so... well, in the meantime, do you mind if I hang out with you?

Frankie: No. No. Hey, be my guest.

[Clears throat]

Billie: Okay, it's freezing.

Frankie: Oh, sorry. You know what? I got just the thing to fix you up here -- ma's special hot cocoa -- right there. All right? I remember -- I'd be out messing around on a cold, snowy day or just playing hockey. I'd come in. This stuff would fix me right up.

Billie: Mmm. That's good.

Frankie: Yeah.

Billie: So, what are you thinking about?

Frankie: [Sighs]

Billie: Jack and Jennifer?


Jennifer: Jack?

Jack: What? I'm sorry. Did -- did I wake you?

Jennifer: No. No, just hold me, Jack.

Jack: Right here.

Jennifer: Oh, I love you so much.

Jack: I love you, too. [Inhales sharply] [Breathing heavily]

Jennifer: What is it? What's wrong?

Jack: It's okay. I'm okay.

Jennifer: Are you sure?

Jack: Yeah.

Jennifer: Is there anything I can do?

Jack: Just -- just don't leave me. Just be here.

Jennifer: I'm not going anywhere. I'm not going anywhere. Not anymore.

Jack: You know, if you're trying to distract me with that hair, you're doing a good job.

Jennifer: Oh, God. I'm trying so hard -- so hard to be strong for Abby and Jack Jr. What if this is it? What if -- what if that dinner we had was our last dinner? What if -- [Sniffles] What if this is our last conversation -- our last night together? And what if -- [Sniffles] What if this really is the last time we ever make love again?

Jack: Then -- then this night is never going to end.

Jennifer: If you're in pain, Jack, you need to rest.

Jack: I don't feel anything... except love. I feel how much I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you so much.


John: No way are you married to North.

Marlena: If we were never divorced, I am still his wife.

Alex: In the eyes of the State and God.

Marlena: Which means my marriage to you is invalid. And my marriage to Roman is also invalid.

John: So, you're her husband?

Alex: Yes.

John: And you love her?

Alex: More than you can imagine.

John: So, why did you wait until now to come back to her? Why didn't you come back to her years ago, when you first returned from your special-OPS mission?


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


Alex: We've already been through this, John. The shock of my death led to Marlena's first bout with hysterical amnesia. She then moved on to Salem, started a new life. By the time I returned, she had already married Roman, they had Sami and Eric... and she had absolutely no memory of me whatsoever. As much as I loved her, I couldn't blame her for moving on. The most important thing to me was that you were happy. I was afraid if I tried to push myself back into her life, it might cause her to suffer a complete psychotic breakdown. So I walked away.

John: Because you loved her?

Alex: Yes. And because it was what was best for her.

John: I don't buy that for a second. Because if you loved her as much as I do, you would have fought for her. You would have found a way to break through this amnesia.

Alex: Has that worked for you? What happened to Marlena is what caused me to decide to study amnesia, to become an expert in it. And over the years, I have learned that there is no magic cure -- that when we have had success, it has only been after a long, painstaking process. As I have tried to tell you over and over again, if we move too quickly, we can cause more harm than good.

John: Besides, if you move too quickly, you wouldn't have enough time to brainwash her through hypnosis.

Marlena: John, don't do that.

Alex: It's all right... 'cause I want him to understand this. Yes, I've used hypnosis. I've used psychotherapy. I've used focal points, music, even medications. Because over the years of treating patients with amnesia, I have learned and I have found that these tools give me the best success rate. The only thing I've tried to do all along here is to help Marlena regain her memory.

John: Her memory of you.

Alex: And of you and of Roman and of her children, her family, her friends, even her memory of being held captive by Stefano DiMera. Because I want her to regain all of her memory and to make sure that they are integrated and sequenced properly into her brain so that she doesn't have to continue year after year just remembering bits and pieces of it. I want her to have her whole life back!

John: Why did you wait until now to produce this documentation that you are her husband?

Alex: She is my patient. I have to respect that. But more importantly, I wanted to make sure that she was ready to handle this -- to face it -- that this information would not cause her more harm than good. And it has only been over time... that I have realized that these two cases of amnesia are connected -- that in order to treat this one, we also had to deal with the previous one, as well.

John: You are so full of it. You have done what you have done because you have been paid to do it.


Billie: I think I knew jack was dying before anyone. He swore me to secrecy.

Frankie: Well, then you know as much as Jack's gonna suffer, Jen and the kids are gonna suffer even more.

Billie: At least she'll have someone to take care of her.

Frankie: What do you mean?

Billie: Jack told me about his plan for you and Jennifer.

Frankie: He had no right.

Billie: Maybe not, but you are gonna honor his request, aren't you?



[Thunder crashes]

Jennifer: Jack?

Jack: [Gasps]

Jennifer: What are you doing?


[Water running]

Mimi: So much for our romantic night.

Shawn D.: Mimi, hey, can you do me a favor? Can you grab me one of those clean towels that are sitting on the kitchen chair right there?

Mimi: Sure.

Shawn D.: All right. Thanks.

Mimi: Shawn?

Shawn D.: You know, this would be the best place to be on a cold night. Come in with me.

Mimi: I don't know.

Shawn D.: I do.


Belle: Should I call 911?

Philip: No, no, no, no, no.

Belle: What's wrong? What's going on? Wait. Wait.

Philip: It's all right. It's just the old phantom pains again.

Belle: I thought they were gone.

Philip: [Exhales deeply] Well, I think maybe they started acting up after I got the prosthesis adjusted. [Exhales sharply]

Belle: But they haven't been like this the whole time, have they?

Philip: Some. Yeah. [Exhales deeply] But it's not a big deal.

Belle: Of course it's a big deal. You've been in pain for weeks, and I haven't even noticed?

Philip: No, no. It hasn't been constant. I've been keeping it from you a little bit.

Belle: 'Cause you didn't think I could handle it?

Philip: Because I didn't want you to worry about it.

Belle: What kind of wife am I? You deserve so much more. You deserve so much better.

Philip: Come here. Come on. [Exhales deeply]


Alex: So, what is it? You think I'm on Stefano DiMera's payroll -- is that it?

John: Are you?

Alex: Don't be ridiculous. I've never even met the DiMeras.

John: What about Lexie Carver?

Alex: She's estranged from them. She's also the doctor you approached for medical advice. Now, when Lexie called me to confer on this case, I couldn't say no 'cause I couldn't bear the thought of seeing you suffer.

John: And that's the only reason?

Alex: No. Because I also thought that by treating Marlena, I might also be able to reach out to her -- to let her know about the great love we once shared. That love -- I still hold. And I hope that somewhere deep down inside her subconscious, she remembers that love, and she does. Come here. I know they don't believe me, but you and I know the truth. When you started having bits of memory, you had flashes of your past life with me -- but not only with me -- also with Roman and with John, didn't you?

Marlena: I did. It was very confusing for me, but that is what happened.

Alex: And they all felt real?

Marlena: Yes.

Alex: Then if you remember being with all three of us, the time is coming when you're going to have to decide which one of us you want to be with.

John: Oh, come on. You've got her so confused. She's in no state to make any choice now.

Kate: John.

Alex: Even if she were to choose you?

Marlena: John, I want to talk to Alex alone.

John: I don't think that's a good idea.

Marlena: I do.

Kate: Look, what do you say we go out on the terrace and give them a little time alone? Hmm?

Marlena: Thank you, Kate.

Kate: [Exhales deeply] It's cold out here, isn't it?

John: I'm losing her. He's manipulated her. He has packed her head full of lies. I think I'm losing her for good.

Marlena: You have made a very noble and professional and compassionate case for why you never revealed yourself to me.

Alex: It was the truth -- every word of it.

Marlena: I want to believe you. I just -- I can't be sure. And John said that if you're lying, you'd never tell us that.

Alex: There's only one thing I can think of that might convince you.


Frankie: Billie, I know what Jack wants. But he can't just decide that two people should fall in love.

Billie: No. Of course not. But worrying about Jennifer takes the focus off of himself.

Frankie: I care about her -- a lot. In fact, when we were together, it was the best time of my life.

Billie: You still love her, don't you?

Frankie: But...if we should ever get back together, it's gotta be her choice. I respect her way too much to force myself into her life because that's what Jack wants me to do.

Billie: Frankie, you're already in her life. Besides Hope, you're the closest friend she has.

Frankie: What kind of friend would I be if I selfishly use her husband's death for my own personal gain?

Billie: It wouldn't be selfish. Jack's already given you his permission.

Frankie: It's not his to give. She's not his property. She's his wife. And after he's gone, she's gonna need time to grieve.

Billie: She's gonna need you.

Frankie: I'll be there. But I will not take advantage of her vulnerability. I just -- for her sake, I hope -- I just hope he somehow pulls through this.


Jack: I was going to take my medication.

Jennifer: Okay. Are you still in so much pain?

Jack: Pain has no power over me -- not when I'm with you.

Jennifer: Then I guess we'll just have to stay together forever.

Jack: That's a nice thought.

Jennifer: Jack... we can beat this. We can. You just have to hang on a little bit longer till someone can find a cure.

Jack: In the meantime... I better just take my pills.

Jennifer: All right. I'll get your cranberry -- oh, shoot. You're out of cranberry juice. Hold on.

Jack: Oh, Jennifer, look. I-I got water right here.

Jennifer: No, no, no. Remember what the book said about cranberries -- that the acid in the cranberries balances out the PH balance of the medication?

Jack: Jennifer, I --

Jennifer: I'll be right back.

Jack: [Exhales sharply] I'm sorry. Jennifer, I... I'm doing this for you. [ Breathing raggedly]


Shawn D.: You are the most beautiful and sexiest woman I have ever known.. I have fantasized about this for so long.

Mimi: So have I..

Mimi: And I'm still fantasizing about it. Get a life, Mimi.

[Door opens]

Shawn D.: Mimi, hey, can you do me a favor and grab me one of those clean towels that are sitting on the kitchen chair right there?


Belle: I'm actually starting to feel a little bit better.

Philip: Are you?

Belle: Not always but some.

Philip: That sounds like a reason to celebrate, and I've got just the thing. Check this out. I picked it up on the way home. I think it'll go very well with the risotto.

Belle: Oh, Philip, you know I can't drink.

Philip: Sparkling cider. No alcohol.

Belle: Thank you. But there's no reason you can't have any wine.

Philip: Honey, I've got you. I don't need any more wine.

Belle: [Chuckles]

Philip: Plenty of wine. Get the glasses. Come on. Ha ha.

Belle: Ha ha ha ha. So funny. Here you go.

Philip: Thank you. All righty. Here it comes.

Belle: Okay. Ooh.

Philip: [Chuckles] I want to make just a little toast.

Belle: Okay.

Philip: To our future and to our family.

Belle: To our family.



Kate: I wish I could guarantee that you're not going to lose Marlena, but I canít. All the evidence suggests that Alex and Marlena were married.

John: Oh, Kate. If he's got you convinced of that, what hope does Marlena have in her present condition?

Kate: Oh, I'm not saying that she's not going to choose you, but if you're going to fight for her, you have to at least acknowledge that he was her first love and that she was married to him. I know you don't like that idea, but it -- it's a fact.

John: The only fact I know is that the longer that he is with her, the more time he has to play with her mind, so his time's up.

Kate: What are you gonna do?

John: I'm gonna go try to reclaim my wife.

Kate: Look, from what I saw in there, if you go in and attack Alex without provocation, it could force her into his arms permanently.


Marlena: [Gasps] Oh! [Inhales sharply] [Whimpers]

Alex: I could have stood here all night, telling you how much we once loved each other -- that I am your husband, the man you vowed to spend the rest of your life with.

Marlena: But lies can be told. Memories can be implanted.

Alex: But emotions canít. And, why, when I kissed you, it brought back feelings that had been buried for decades, but they were feelings that never went away. That's why you returned that kiss with such passion.

Marlena: It just felt so... [Inhales sharply] [Whimpers]

Alex: It's all right.

Marlena: It felt so... natural.

Alex: Our connection is real, Marlena. We both know it. So please give me the chance to prove I am the only man that you have ever really loved.


Jennifer: Hey. What are you doing out here?

Frankie: We didn't wake you, did we?

Jennifer: No, no. I was just coming downstairs to get Jack some more juice. I thought you might be Abby and Chelsea. You're freezing out here, aren't you?

Billie: A little.

Jennifer: Come on inside. Hurry. It's cold. Come on.

Billie: Thanks. Chelsea hasn't come home yet, and she's not answering her cellphone, and I thought that maybe she'd be here with Abby.

Jennifer: I didn't realize how late it was, but that's so strange for Abby not to call if she's gonna be late. Hold on. Abby, listen. It's mom. I hope you're on your way home. Call me as soon as you get this. Maybe I should go look for her.

Billie: No, no. Wait. You need to stay here with Jack. Frankie and I will go.

Jack: Go where?

Jennifer: Oh, your juice.

Jack: Oh, no, no. Don't worry about that. I-I took my pills with some water upstairs. What's going on here?

Frankie: Abby and Chelsea haven't come home.

Billie: With the ice storm coming --

Jack: Abigail's not home?

Jennifer: I'm going to look for her now.

Jack: No, I should be the one to go.

Billie: Wait. If you've just taken some medication, you shouldn't drive. We'll go.

Jennifer: Abby's my daughter. I want to go.

Jack: Wait. Frankie, could you and Billie take Jennifer to look for the girls?

Frankie: You got it.

Jennifer: Wait. You can't be here alone.

Jack: All right. All right. Just, uh -- Billie, y-you stay here with me, and then if the girls come home, we can call you.

Billie: Okay. That sounds like a plan.

Jennifer: Fine. I'm gonna get dressed, okay?

Frankie: Hey, I hope we didn't disturb you.

Jack: No, no. I'm glad you're here, actually. We need to talk.


[Both laughing]

Belle: Well, the risotto smells delicious.

Philip: Doesn't it, though? I'm very excited. Oh! Wait a second.

Belle: There's an awful lot of it.

Philip: Wait a second. I think I was supposed to cut the recipe in half. It looks like I made enough for six.

Belle: Well, we'll save the leftovers, I guess.

Philip: No, we can't because apparently the seafood will go bad if we do that.

Belle: Okay.

Philip: But maybe we could invite Shawn and Mimi over. We talked about going on a double date, right? Claire's asleep. What do you think about making this a little bit bigger celebration?

Belle: Um, I don't know.

Philip: Well, what's the problem?

Belle: You know what? It's fine. I think it's a great idea, and I think we should both be there to support Shawn and Mimi's relationship.

Philip: All right.

Belle: [Chuckles]


Shawn D.: Hey, can I get that towel?

Mimi: Yeah, sure. Here you go.

Shawn D.: Thank you.

Mimi: Like I said, so much for our romantic night. [Sighs]


[Knock on door]

Shawn D.: Mimi, can you get the door? Mim-- I'll get it.

Belle: Shawn. Uh --

Shawn D.: Belle.

Mimi: Shawn, did you say something? What's going on here?

Belle: I-I just came over to invite you two over for dinner. Philip made risotto for six, so...

Shawn D.: What do you say?

Mimi: But we already had plans to go out tonight, remember?

Shawn D.: I-I know, and I-I want to. But I'm just thinking 'cause of the ice storm, we might not want to drive.

Mimi: Oh, so you'd rather go over to Belle and Philip's?

Shawn D.: You know, if it's okay with you.

Mimi: Yeah, sure. It sounds fun. I love risotto.

Shawn D.: Okay. Well, I'm just gonna change, and then we'll be right over.

Belle: I am so sorry, Mimi. I didn't mean to ruin any plans. It was Philip's idea. You know, the double date he's been talking about? So...

Mimi: Yeah, yeah. So, are you sure you're okay with this?

Belle: Absolutely. I'll see you in a few, okay?

Mimi: Okay. Bye. Please help me get through this, God.


Philip: Honey, will you pass me the olive oil? Belle, are you okay?

Belle: What? Oh, I'm fine. Yeah.

Philip: Are you sure?

Belle: I'm positive. What did you ask for?

Philip: The olive oil.

Belle: Oh. Here.

Philip: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.


[Thunder rumbles]

Shawn D.: Hey. I'm really sorry I'm not taking you out tonight.

Mimi: Oh, it's okay. You're right. With the ice storm coming, we shouldn't be out driving. This will be better.

Shawn D.: Yeah. And I will make it up to you, I promise. We're gonna have that special night together.

Mimi: We better.

Shawn D.: Hey, I'm telling you, we'll do it right.

[Doorbell ringing]

Philip: I got it, I got it, I got it, I got it.


John: Don't mean to interrupt. Just it's getting a little cold out there..

Marlena: Sorry.

Kate: Thanks.

John: So, if you're both through, I'd like to have a second alone, please.

Alex: Well, actually, no, we're not through.

Marlena: It's okay. I'd like to talk to John alone.

Alex: All right.


Kate: You were telling the truth, weren't you?

Alex: Hmm. Yes. About our love, about our marriage. Every word of it.

Kate: I feel sorry for you.

Alex: Why, because of all the years Marlena and I have lost?

Kate: No, because you waited too long to come back. Because whatever you had between you is long over.

Alex: I wouldn't be so sure of that. I have no intention of losing Marlena. Quite frankly, I think you'd be a fool if you gave up on John.


John: I know that I have, uh, flown off the handle before, so I'd like to try to talk to you rationally about North -- Alex -- and his claims that he is your husband. Now, my take --

Marlena: No. I can't do that -- not now.

John: I thought you said that you wanted to talk to me privately.

Marlena: Yes, so that I could tell you that I need some time to process all this information. I don't want to be rude. I'd like you both to go. John, I don't want to hurt you... but I do think I owe Alex the opportunity to talk about our past.

John: Why do you think you owe him anything?

Marlena: Because he's my husband.


Jack: You see, I'm counting on the two of you to be there for Jennifer after I'm gone.

Billie: We don't need to talk about this right now.

Frankie: We don't have to do this now.

Jack: No. No, we do. She won't talk to me, so I have to talk to you. There are things that you have to know. Promise me, Billie, you will take her out to lunch once a week -- once a week -- or she'll just hole herself up in the house and never come out.

Billie: Okay, fine. I'll even pay. Is that it?

Jack: And buy flowers. Frankie, she loves flowers. You know, the tulips? But really it's -- it's hydrangeas. She loves hydrangeas. It's the blue ones. And Halloween -- she loves Halloween. And the candy -- can't get enough of it. But you can't get it enough times of the year, so I bought it last month. But next year, you -- you have to remember next year --

Jennifer: Did you say "next year"? Finally! Jack, yes -- next year! That is the right attitude to have -- "next year." I love you. I love you so much.

Jack: Oh, I love you so much. I love you so much.

Frankie: So, I'm gonna go start up the car and warm it up.

Jennifer: Oh, gosh. Okay. We'll be back.

Frankie: Hold up.

Jack: "Next year."

Jennifer: Thanks.

Jack: J-Jennifer.

Jennifer: I'll be right there. Yeah? What?

Jack: I love you.

[Thunder rumbling] Never forget that.

Jennifer: No. You never forget that. Don't forget it this year, next year, or the year after that, or the year after that. Do you understand me? You go to bed, okay? You seem tired. Go right to bed. I'll be back.


Jack: "Next year." It was harder than I thought. Saying goodbye was harder than I thought.

Billie: Jack, Jennifer's right. You're exhausted. You need to lie down.

Jack: Abigail. I never got to say goodbye to Abigail.

Billie: Well, you'll see her in the morning.

Jack: No. I said goodbye to Jack Jr. I said goodbye to Vern and Jo when I dropped the baby off, but not Abigail. Don't let her feel guilty for not coming home tonight.

Billie: Jack, what's going on? What -- what is going on?

Jack: I did it. I took all my pills.

Billie: No! My God, Jack!

Jack: Promise me you won't tell Jennifer, you won't tell Abigail, you won't tell anyone. Swear to me you won't tell anyone. No more pain for Jennifer or Abigail. No more pain for anyone.

Billie: I'm calling 911.

Jack: No! No!

Billie: I'm calling 911! Yes!

Jack: You're my friend. Please be my friend. Please. Never tell -- tell -- tell Jennifer I love -- that her I love...

Billie: Jack! Jack? Jack? No. No. No. Jack. Jack! [Crying] Come on. Come on. Please, please, please come back.

Jennifer: I can't even believe that I am talking about my husband like this -- like he's already gone.


Nicole: It's worth the risk to go for the gold ring.

Austin: You mean the brass ring, unless you're talking about a wedding band.


Lucas: You have no business touching that.


Marlena: I remember the deep feeling of love for him.
