Nicole: Sami, get me a cab to the airport.

Sami: Get your own damn cab. I'm not your secretary.

Nicole: No, no, you're the receptionist, and if you keep this up, you're not gonna get promoted to secretary. Look, I am going to Los Angeles on a fact-finding mission for our company. I am packing my briefcase. The least you could do is pick up the phone and get me a cab.

Sami: What kind of fact-finding, Nicole?

Nicole: About Highstyle -- you know, the company we're taking over?

Sami: Yeah, yeah, actually I wanted to talk to you --

Nicole: If you think being negative about every prospective client is gonna keep your lazy butt from working, fine. I will take all the credit. I'm okay with that.

Sami: No, Nicole, I just think that we can't afford to play this game and lose. We have to be careful.

Nicole: We're not gonna lose.

Sami: Yeah, well, we didn't think we were gonna lose Clear Visage, either, did we? And we did, to Titan. And now we've got these loans and Brandon's loft to pay for, and I just think we should be really careful. Money is really thin.

Nicole: Austin does not agree with you. Business is about taking a risk, and I thought you would be good at that, Sami, being that you've taken so many in your love life.

Sami: I don't think it's appropriate to get personal here, Nicole.

Nicole: Fine. You want to talk about business, do your damn job, and get me a taxi.

Austin: Nicole, you can ride to the airport with me. I'm going to L.A., too.

Nicole: Oh, great. What are you going for?

Austin: An investor wants to meet with me.

Sami: Wait a second. There is no way that the two of you are going to L.A. without me.


Carrie: Okay, where do you want to go to dinner?

Lucas: I don't know. It's your turf. You pick.

Carrie: Okay, sounds good.

Lucas: All right.


Carrie: Where did all these come from?

Becky: These were just delivered. These are all the gifts you ordered for the employees' kids.

Carrie: Right. Oh, I had so much fun shopping for these -- online, of course. I mean, who has time to shop in a store anymore? Oh, I'm so sorry. Lucas, this is my ace number-one assistant, Rebecca Ferrer.

Becky: "Becky," "Becks," "hey, you." I answer to all the above.

Carrie: I never say, "hey, you."

Becky: Yeah, she does. All the time.

Carrie: Becky, this is one of my dearest long-time friends Lucas Roberts.. He works for Titan Enterprises, so watch your back.

Becky: Oh, Salem, right?

Lucas: Yeah. It's nice to meet you, Becky.

Becky: Likewise.

Carrie: Okay, come on. So, what kind of food are you in the mood for?

Becky: Uh, the kind that comes to your door. I'm sorry, Carrie, but the corporate gift rep is on the way over for you to select the family gift packages you want to give out.

Carrie: Oh, my God.

Becky: You forgot.

Carrie: I completely forgot. He called last week to reschedule, and it's absolutely the last time he can do it.

Lucas: [Sighs]

Carrie: I'm so sorry, Lucas. I know you flew all the way out here, and I thought that I cleared my schedule, but I have to get these out if I'm gonna get my employees their gifts before the holidays. Can I take a rain check on dinner?


Jennifer: It's okay. Mommy's here. There's nothing to be scared of. It's okay.

Frankie: Is there anything I can do?

Jennifer: Oh, no. I think he just had a little nightmare, you know?

Frankie: Yeah.

Jennifer: He's too little. He doesn't understand what's going on with his dad.


Jack: All around the mulberry bush

the monkey chased the weasel

the monkey thought it was all in good fun

"pop" goes the weasel

pop, pop, pop, pop, pop

weasel, weasel, weasel

weasel, weasel, weasel, we

we, we, we, we, we

Jennifer: [Chuckles] Wow.

Jack: Well, you know, he's asleep. Obviously a connoisseur of good singing, so...

Jennifer: Oh, I would call that bad singing -- very bad singing.

Jack: Well, you would, but you're not a connoisseur. Look, I'll do anything it takes to make my boy happy and make him fall asleep. How about an aria from "Figaro"?

Mi, mi, mi, mi, mi

Jennifer: Jack, you're gonna wake him up.

Jack: All around the opera house

the monkey chased the tenor

the tenor thought it was all in good fun

pop goes the tenor

Figaro, Figaro, Figaro, Figaro, Figaro, Figaro


Jennifer: You're gonna wake him up.


Jennifer: Hey, Frankie, you sing much?

Frankie: Uh, I don’t...I've been told I carry a tune.

Jennifer: Oh, that's not good then because Jack would sing these really bad songs to Jack Jr. It'd work every time.


Abby: I heard Jack crying.

Jennifer: Oh, baby, I know. It's okay. I think he just had a little nightmare, you know, the same kind you used to have now and then.

Abby: Yeah, because I missed dad when you guys were split up. And I miss him now, too.

Jennifer: I know. I know.


Kate: [Sighing] Oh, God.

Kate: Philip doesn't have the right blood type to be Claire's father, but Shawn does, which means that Belle lied. She did sleep with him... which means Shawn is the baby's father.

Kate: [Exhales deeply] No one's ever going to know that Shawn is the baby's father. There's no way -- no way that Philip can lose the baby and the wife that he loves so much. Please forgive me, God, but this is what I have to do.

[Keys clacking]


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


Lucas: You know, if you cancel dinner on me, you're gonna make me cry. I'm serious. I might shed a tear or two. Come on, this can't wait till tomorrow or something? I mean, who -- who signs your cards anyway?

Carrie: I do.

Lucas: You do? The C.E.O.? Usually that's a job for the secretaries at Titan.

Carrie: That's not very personal.

Lucas: Well, no, it's not, but there are, you know, time issues and whatnot.

Carrie: I agree, but my workers put in a lot of extra time because they're people to me, not just worker bees.

Lucas: Ooh. That's a good one. I guess I just learned something there. Well, how about I call ahead and order? That way we could save time, and you can leave instructions for whoever's gonna wrap all these presents for you.

Becky: [Laughs] Yeah, right.

Carrie: [Laughs, sighs]

Lucas: What? What's so funny?

Becky: See, the wrapping paper's being brought down from the design department.

Lucas: You're gonna wrap all this yourself?

Carrie: With my own two hands, which is another reason why I shouldn't go out tonight.

Becky: You see, she believes in being a hands-on C.E.O. Yeah? No? Okay, sorry for the joke, but, hey, it's true. I mean, how do you think she worked her way through the ranks so quickly? We all adore her.

Carrie: Oh, it's not that big a deal, Becks. Besides, it's not that big a company -- yet. But I've got big ambitions.

Lucas: Yeah? That's cool. There's a lot of cool stuff here. I wanted one of these when I was a little kid, a little train.

Becky: Oh, Javier has been begging his parents for one of those, too. How old is he again, Carrie?

Carrie: He just turned 10.

Lucas: Oh, wait a minute. You know his name and his birthday? Where's the C.E.O.-prompter around here? You got all that memorized?

Becky: Every kid, every family, all the birthdays. Carrie's an extraordinary boss.

Lucas: What about the bottom line?

Carrie: People should be happy. That's my bottom line.

Lucas: Yeah, I understand that, but what about business sense? What about fiscal responsibilities, and what about the shareholders?

Carrie: I've got to admit, I don't always have the best head for business. My background is in P.R. Anyhow, the priority of this company has always been to keep our employees and our consumers happy. Unfortunately, that doesn't always translate into instant profits.

Lucas: There's something that you'd be surprised to know about me.

Carrie: What's that?

Lucas: I'm a professional gift-wrapper. I'm awesome at it. I should be in the Guinness book of world's records or something. I could work at Barron's during the holiday rush with no problem, really. In fact, I feel the holiday spirit coming on right now. It's taking over my body. I don't know what to do. Uh, Becky, will you help me get all this stuff into Carrie's office? And then we'll, uh, order some takeout or something. We're gonna need a lot of fuel. It's gonna be a long night.

Carrie: All right.


Austin: Going to L.A. with Nicole is strictly business, and, frankly, I'm getting really tired of you questioning my every move.

Sami: Wait a second, Austin, I am not jealous of the two of you. I want to be a part of this. Look, I am just as much a part of this company as Nicole is. And she gets to do all the important stuff, and I'm stuck just making coffee.

Nicole: Sami, you don't have the same business experience as I do.

Sami: Wait a second, I used to work at Countess Wilhelmina. And may I remind you that I am the one --

Austin: That was years ago. You were just a kid.

Sami: You're right, Austin, but how am I ever gonna get the experience you think I need if you don't give me a chance?

Austin: Can't argue with that. How fast can you pack a bag?

Sami: Oh, my gosh, does that mean I get to go with you?

Austin: Yeah, as long as you don't say "oh, my gosh" in the meeting.

Nicole: Do we have the money to spend on Sami's airfare? Look, I'm just thinking of our bottom line.

Austin: I appreciate that, but I do have some frequent flyer miles left over from my job in New York.

Sami: Thank you very much, Austin. You're not gonna regret it. I'd better get ready.

Austin: And I want you to fill me in on what you're gonna be doing out there.

Nicole: Okay, well, I'm gonna check out Highstyle's entire operational history, okay? Now, this C.E.O. is new, so I don't know anything about her except that I have heard she's an even worse businessperson than the last one. So like I said before, Highstyle spends a lot of money on charitable donations. They even give their employees profit sharing and bonuses. You can't do that. The C.E.O. is toast.


Jennifer: Baby, come here. Sit down, honey. Sit down. I am -- I am so sorry.

Abby: Christmas is coming soon, and daddy won't be here.

Jennifer: I know. I know that.

Abby: [Sniffles] I knew he was...he was leaving us. And I knew he was in pain sometimes...a lot of pain. And it was selfish for me to wish for this, but I just -- I wanted him to be with us no matter what.

Jennifer: Me too, honey. And it's not selfish. We don't want the people that we love to die. But that's why we have to hold on to our memories of your dad. We have to hold on to them so tight and just remember all the good, good times that we had together.

Abby: But I'm not gonna see him anymore, mom. How can that be? How can daddy be gone?

Jennifer: I -- I don't know. I don't know. It's something that we can't understand. Of all the really hard things in life, honey, this is the toughest.

Abby: I know you're trying, mom, but it isn't helping. Daddy was always so good at saying things to cheer me up. No matter how awful what happened, he would always...say something to get us laughing again.


Jack: Well, as we all know, I'm dying.

Abby: Daddy, do we have to?

Jack: Yes, we have to. There are things that I have to say, things that have to be said, things that I've been dying to say to both of you. What?

Jennifer: Could you choose your words a little more carefully, please?

Jack: Choose -- I'M... you're right, okay? I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Bad choice of words, but the fact is -- the fact is, there are things that I am dying to say. I mean, I'm not gonna die when I say them. I'll die after I say them. But I guess what I'm trying to say is that...that there are... there are some things I want to say before I die.

Abby: Daddy, please don't joke.

Jack: I'm not joking. I am not joking here. I'm trying -- but it's true. There are some things that I want to tell you right now before it's too late, before... before I can't tell you. I mean, someone else could tell you, but it won't be me telling you, and the fact is I...I want to talk to you about dying before I die.

Jennifer: Jack, please.

Jack: That didn't come out right. That didn't come out right at all, but the fact is I want to talk to both of you about dying before I die. Well, it actually would be better if I talked to you about it after I died because I'd actually know what I was talking about. The fact is that since everyone here's alive, no one knows what they're talking about, so what are we talking about anyway? What am I talking about? [Laughter] Wait, no, I am not joking. This is serious. Abigail, I am serious.

Jennifer: We have no idea what you're talking about.

Jack: I don't know what I'm talking about either. I don't know. Someone talk.

Jennifer: No, it's better when you just talk.

Jack: No, no, no, just stop me now. Stop me before I talk again.

Jennifer: [Laughs]



Kate: [Sighs] This could be a very dangerous thing I'm doing. I suppose someone could get sick. But if I don't do it... if I don't do it and Philip finds out that the baby isn't his, it could destroy his whole family. It's gonna cause so much heartache. But if no one ever finds out, then everything will be the same. Hell, I'm doing everyone a favor.

[Sighs] Okay.

[Door opens]

Nurse: What are you doing in here, ma'am?


Calder: Hazelnut coffee beans with a mini grinder, a Christmas pudding imported from Potter's Food Hall in London, and that's it, Miss Brady.

Carrie: Wow.

Lucas: Yeah, "wow" is right. Can I work for you, please? Those are the most amazing gift packages I've ever seen. Well done.

Calder: Miss Brady is the soul of compassion.

Carrie: Oh, I just love giving people things they can't afford for themselves. I mean, life is short. Why not? What is it they say? "You can't take it with you," right?

Lucas: Yeah, but you got to make it work for you, though.

Carrie: Um, I -- I would also like to add a personal card to each of those baskets.

Calder: I thought you might. The price.

Carrie: Oh. Ah-ha...that'll be fine.

Lucas: Yeah, may I for a second?

Carrie: Yeah.

Lucas: Thank you. Whoa. Um [Clears throat] I'm a vice president at Titan Enterprises, actually, and I would just love it if you would approach us next year.

Calder: Very well, Mr. Roberts.

Lucas: Well, of course, Titan is a much bigger company than Highstyle, so we'd expect a better price.

Calder: Naturally.

Lucas: Yeah. And, as a show of good faith, I'd love it if you would be kind enough to extend Miss Brady a 20% discount on her purchase today. You know, it would go a long way towards us realizing you're the type of business that Titan would like to patronize.

Calder: Of course, Mr. Roberts. I'll adjust your bill accordingly, Miss Brady. And thank you very much for the contact with Titan. My supervisor will be very pleased.

Carrie: You're welcome.

Lucas: Maybe you'll even get a gift of your own in there.

Calder: Now, that would be a nice surprise. Merry Christmas, Miss Brady.

Carrie: Merry Christmas, Mr. Calder.

Calder: You'll be hearing from me next fall, Mr. Roberts.

Lucas: Count on it. Thank you very much. Have a good one.

Carrie: Lucas. Can you give me lessons?

Lucas: Lessons on what?

Carrie: On how to wheel and deal like that.

Lucas: Oh, come on. It's just the bottom line. It's all it's about. And your employees, they'd be real upset if you went out of business and they were stuck in the real world with bosses that don't give a damn about them.

Carrie: I can see I have a lot to learn from you. What do you know? Lucas Roberts is all grown up.

Lucas: Yeah, about time, huh? And I guess a business could stand to have a little more heart, not only a bottom line. I guess I learned that from you. And we never had that takeout, did we? So what do you say? Maybe dinner after all?

Carrie: I would absolutely love it.

Lucas: Oh, good.

Carrie: Thank you, Lucas.

Lucas: You're welcome. Ooh, thank you. May I?

Carrie: Yes, you may. Thank you.


Austin: Just so you know, we are not taking over Highstyle to slash and burn it. I want to keep as many employees as we can.

Nicole: They're top-heavy, Austin. I'm amazed this company even stayed in business. We need to downsize. We need to get in there and trim and make it a lean, mean machine, otherwise, they're gonna take us down with them. Look, they've been throwing their profits away instead of plowing it back into the company.

Austin: Well, maybe there's a strategy we're not aware of yet.

Nicole: Yeah. It's called business suicide. Look, Austin, I am interested in Highstyle's product line and some of their advertising and marketing plan, but the rest of it has to go.

Austin: Okay, well, get all the information you want, all the information you can, but I am not down with your restructuring plan. I need a lot more convincing before I'm gonna interrupt people's lives like that. Listen to me. Don't do anything underhanded or illegal in L.A. while you're working for me.

Nicole: I'm not. I just want to see how real those balance sheets are.

Austin: Okay, I'm cool with that. All right, now, I have to go and get a clean shirt on, and then we'll all head to the airport. Will you please get ready?


Sami: Yep.

Nicole: [Sighs] What are you staring at?

Sami: You. You were lying through your teeth to Austin just now.

Nicole: Listen, Sami, I want this company to make it, and that means Austin has to look like a winner, not a wimp. I thought that's what you wanted -- success, power, and money.

Sami: Of course I do. Who doesn't?

Nicole: Okay, then. Stay out of my way and let me do what I do best.

Sami: Well, Nicole...


Abby: Mom?

Jennifer: What, sweetie?

Abby: I'm feeling a little better now. Not about daddy being... daddy not being here. That hurts a lot.

Jennifer: I know. And unfortunately, it's always gonna hurt a lot.

Abby: I just feel like I need to be strong for Jack Jr. and for you.

Jennifer: No, honey. No, I do not want you to be strong for me, okay?

Abby: No, I'm not saying it right. It's like when we were talking about daddy and laughing, I felt stronger, like he was trying to help me somehow, even though... even though he's gone.

Jennifer: I know. Your dad is helping us because his love is always gonna be with us. It is.

Abby: That's what I mean.

Jennifer: Yeah, and remembering him and talking about him will keep him alive for us in the most important ways, okay?

Abby: And we have to remember him for Jack Jr.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Abby: He doesn't have all of my memories. You know what? I'm gonna start a memory book tonight.

Jennifer: What? Sweetie, listen, it's late. Okay, I know that you're feeling a little bit better, but tomorrow is gonna be your dad's memorial service, and it's gonna be really sad, so I think you're gonna need all your strength, okay?

Abby: Okay. I'll just write one page and go right to sleep.

Jennifer: Okay.

Abby: I'm gonna make some hot chocolate.

Jennifer: All right.

Abby: I love you, mom.

Jennifer: I love you, baby, so much. [Sniffles]


Frankie: Mission accomplished. Jack Jr. and his teddy are fast asleep. What's next on the list?

Jennifer: Packing. I mean, you're probably so anxious to get back to D.C.. and your job.

Frankie: Uh [Clears throat] Are you saying it's time for me to go?

Jennifer: Yeah, yeah, I am saying that. I think it's time for all of us to move on.


Kate: You startled me. I was waiting to see my granddaughter's doctor.

Security: No one's allowed in here unless they're authorized.

Kate: Well, what exactly are you implying?

Security: These are Shawn Brady's records.

[Keys clacking]

Security: And they were changed less than two minutes ago.

Kate: [Sighs]

Security: You're in big trouble, lady.

Kate: Look, you don't understand.

Security: Oh, I understand plenty. You just broke the law. You're coming with me.


["We wish you a merry Christmas plays]

Sami: Wow. Oh, Austin, look at the view.

Austin: Yeah.

Sami: Wow. Austin, this place looks really expensive.

Austin: Yeah. I only spend this kind of money when it's important, and we really need to make a good impression on this investor.

Sami: Yeah.

Austin: Besides, it's a tax write-off, you know? It's good for us to be seen at this restaurant. Everyone here is a mover and shaker, so we're just gonna act the part. It's how the game is played.

Sami: [Chuckles]


Lucas: You know, they actually have a wonderful wine list I understand. I can order you a glass if you'd like.

Carrie: I'll have a sparkling water.

Lucas: Come on, Carrie. Just because I'm in A.A. doesn't mean you can't drink, okay?

Carrie: I know, and I'd like a sparkling water. You told me that I should start cutting corners, right? So expensive dinners is an excellent place to start. I'm glad you're doing so well.

Lucas: You mean staying sober? Well, I can't lie to you. I've had a few lapses.

Carrie: Because of Sami.

Lucas: Yeah, I can't blame Sami for my alcoholism. You know, I used to let Sami and Nicole drive me crazy. It's what drove me to drink. But it's a disease. It's my disease. And I have to learn how to control it. I just wish my life would get a little better. It'd be a little easier, but I don't know. Things are looking up. I'm doing fine.

Waiter: The wine list, sir.

Lucas: Thank you.

Carrie: Oh, we won't be drinking tonight, thank you. But we would like your very best bottle of sparkling water. Spare no expense.

Waiter: Very well.

Lucas: Thanks. I told you, you didn't have to do that. You can drink around me. I'm cool with it, really.

Carrie: Who needs wine? It's just so wonderful to spend some time together.

Lucas: Yeah.

Carrie: Every now and then, I feel bad about leaving Salem. I miss my family and friends. But there are a lot of bad memories there, too. I just felt it would be easier to start my American life over someplace new.

Lucas: Yeah, I know what you mean. I've been away from Salem for just a couple hours, and I'm already more relaxed than I have been in a long time. Yeah, um... it's a lot of aggravation at home.


Waiter: Your waiter will be right with you.

Austin: Thank you.

Sami: You know, Austin, I love that we're out at some nice restaurant having dinner together. Do you remember that time that we went out to the --

Austin: Sami, this isn't a date. It's not even close. We are here to meet with an investor, Nicole is investigating Highstyle, and the three of us are flying home to Salem.

Sami: Yeah, of course. We'd better hope that Nicole doesn't pull some lame stunt that lands us all in an L.A. jailhouse.


Nicole: [Exhales deeply] Oh.

Becky: May I help you?

Nicole: Hi, I'm sorry. I know it's late, but there's a job listing on the internet for an executive assistant. I wanted to apply.

Becky: Well, that must be a very old listing. I'm the executive assistant, and I'm not going anywhere. So thanks for stopping by. Good night.

Nicole: [Chuckles]


Frankie: She's asking me to leave. Jen, if there was ever a time that you need your friends, this is it.

Jennifer: I know. I know that, Frankie, and you are one of the best friends I've ever had. And I am so grateful to you 'cause you have been there for us and for Jack. And the two of you got to be so close.

Frankie: Yeah, I just don't -- I don't feel right walking out on you and the kids.

Jennifer: Well, you're not walking out on us.

Frankie: Right. You're asking me to leave.

Jennifer: I don't want you to leave right now. I don't want you to leave before Jack's memorial service. But Abby and Jack Jr. and I, we are this -- we are this family now, and we need to figure out what that means. We need to learn how to depend on each other and be strong for each other. And if you're here to pick up the pieces every time we fall apart, we'll become dependent on you, Frankie.

Frankie: Is that such a bad thing?

Jennifer: Yes, it is a bad thing because we need to depend on each other.. Abby needs to come to me with her problems, with her joys, and the last time we thought we lost Jack, when we thought he was gone, she went to everyone else but me. And what we have right now is so great. I want it to stay that way.

Frankie: I would never come between you and Abby.

Jennifer: No, I know that.

Frankie: What I'm saying is you don't have to put the whole world on your shoulders, you know? That's not what Jack would want, so...

Jennifer: I don't want to take advantage any longer of your kindness, all right? You stayed longer than you planned through Jack's illness, and I am so grateful for that, Frankie, but now that Jack is... now that... I'm sorry.

Frankie: No, no, don’t. Don't apologize. You've lost your husband. You need to cry.

Jennifer: I don't want my children to see me.

Frankie: They're not here. It's just me.

Jennifer: Right, and what happens when I rely on you and you leave? Your home is in D.C. My home is here with my children.

Frankie: I just hope you're not expecting too much of yourself too soon.

Jennifer: Maybe. But I -- I need you to leave here after that memorial service. I feel guilty enough keeping you from your job, from your business.



Abby: Mom, have you looked out the window? It's snowing.

Jennifer: That's nice, honey. Oh, my gosh -- your dad's rosebushes.

Abby: Right. He never got around to covering them up. I don't want them to die.

Jennifer: No, they're not gonna die. They're not gonna die because I'm gonna make sure that we have your dad's roses every spring.

Frankie: Jen, I'll take care of it, all right?

Jennifer: No, I can do it.

Frankie: It's cold out there.

Jennifer: I know. It's Salem. It's cold this time of year. I can do it. Abby, you need to go to sleep. You need your rest for tomorrow, okay?

Abby: Okay, mom. I just hope daddy's rosebushes aren't already dead.

Jennifer: No.


Kate: Look, I have $100 in my wallet, and I can always get more.

Security: You finish that sentence, you're only gonna make things worse for yourself -- trying to bribe an officer.

Kate: You're not an officer. You're a security guard.

Security: You're not in a real strong position right now. Are you sure you want to be insulting me, lady?

Kate: Perhaps you don't realize who I am.

Security: Oh, I know who you are. You were married to Victor Kiriakis. And let's see. Right, you were married to Captain Roman Brady, Salem P.D.

Kate: [Sighs]

Security: Should I give him a call?

Kate: No.

Security: I can't believe a woman with all you've got would do something so stupid.

Kate: Okay, fine. What are you gonna do?

Security: I'm turning you in, so stay put. And running away isn't gonna help you because I know who you are.

Kate: [Scoffs] Wait a minute. Wait, would you just listen to me? I wasn't doing this for myself, okay? I was doing it for my son who is a war hero, who lost a leg over there. And I was just trying to protect him. So I'll tell you what. What don't I just get on the computer, I'll change all of the records back to the way they were, and it'll just be our little secret? It'll be like it never even happened, okay?

Security: You can't make something unhappen. The world doesn't work like that. I'm turning you in. Don't move. I'll be right back.

Kate: [Sighs] Damn.


Nicole: I was really hoping there was an available position. You see, Highstyle is just the kind of company I've been wanting to work for.

Becky: Sorry, no job openings at all right now. We're a fairly small company. You can leave a résumé if you want.

Nicole: Well, I'd rather meet with the C.E.O. I make a much better impression in person.

Becky: No, the C.E.O.'s not in right now, and it's fairly late for a business call anyway. I'm just about to close up.

Nicole: Well, can I at least fill out an application just in case a job position opens up?

Becky: Well, you're persistent, aren't you?

Nicole: Oh, yes, well, you see, Highstyle is on my short list of jobs that I would love to work for. They, uh, treat their employees well, and the company's run great.

Becky: Well, I guess you have a point. I guess there's no harm in you filling out one of these, Miss...?

Nicole: Smith. Mary Smith. I know it's a dull name. Um...

Becky: Pen, Miss Smith?

Nicole: Thanks. Call me Mary.



Austin: Sami. Sami. Look, I am sorry. I didn't -- I didn't want to sound mean by saying, "this isn't a date." It's just that we're co-workers, and, you know, I've been pretty up front about that, haven't I?

Sami: Yeah, you have. You don't have to rub it in.

Austin: Sami, you're gonna get used to being single. It's gonna be good for you to find out that you can get through life on your own.

Sami: You know what? I don't want to talk about it right now, okay? I just know that if Carrie were here, you wouldn't have been telling her that it's not a date.

Austin: Carrie? Where did that come from? Were we talking about Carrie? Did I mention Carrie?

Sami: No. I was just thinking out loud.

Austin: Well, stop.

Sami: Okay. I've just been thinking about her a lot lately. She's not exactly my favorite person, even if she is my older sister... [Chuckles] Older -- way older. Bet she could use some of the skin-care products that we're gonna be buying. [Chuckles] Okay, I'm done. Finished. I'm hungry. Let's eat.


Carrie: That was thoughtful of the waiter.

Lucas: Yeah, it was. I'll leave him a big tip, but let's forget about the waiter, all right? Let's forget about everything except leaving our cares and worries at the office, just concentrate on enjoying each other.

Carrie: I'll drink to that.

Lucas: All right.


Kate: [Scoffs] Damn it. Damn it. How did this happen? Sami changes hospital records and she gets away with it for years and I'm in the hospital record room for less than two minutes and I get caught. That is not right. That is so not right. Oh, God, Philip needs my help. He loves that beautiful baby girl with all his heart. And she is his daughter. She is his daughter in every way that matters. Plus, he's married to Belle. I don't know when she slept with Shawn, and I don't care. She's married to Philip now and her daughter is a Kiriakis and that means something. Oh, I suppose it was dangerous to change Shawn's medical records, but what the hell? He's healthy as a horse. Why? Why did I get caught? Now the truth is gonna come out, Philip's life is gonna be ruined, and he's gonna hate me just like Lucas does.

[Door opens]

Security: Right this way.

Kate: Oh, my God. It's you.


Jack: Ask Jennifer to marry you, and then -- and then you be a go husband to her and you be a good father to Abigail and Jack...Jack Jr. I'm sorry. You got to promise me this. I got no one else. I need you. I'm counting on you. I want you to marry my wife. I want you to promise me. Please promise me.

Frankie: You got to help me out, Jack. I want to keep my promise to you, but if she doesn't want me to's gonna make it impossible.


Jennifer: [Sighs] Your rosebushes are alive, Jack. Oh. Oh, God, I wish you were. [Sniffles] I miss you so much already. How am I gonna do this? How am am I gonna live the rest of my life without ever seeing your face again? Oh, gosh, if only you were here.

Jack: I am, Jennifer. I'm here.


Frankie: She wants me to leave. Obviously, it'll be hard, but I'll go.


Jennifer: You're not gonna believe this. You are not gonna believe this. Jack is alive.


Becky: Excuse me, excuse me, you can't be in here.


Sami: Oh, my God. You.

Carrie: I don't believe it.
