[Crowd cheering]

Shawn: How about a free round for the house, eh?

[Cheers and applause the band is in good spirits tonight.]

Caroline: Oh, he's at his best. It's St. Patrick's Day. And this is our busiest night of the year, you know. With everything the Bradyís and everyone's been through... [Irish accent] We could do with a little happiness.

Shawn: That's for sure, darling. Oh, you know, we got a reason to celebrate. Our grandson is getting married tomorrow.

Caroline: [Normal voice] That's right.

Shawn: Hey, to Shawn Douglas and Mimi. May the roof above them never fall in. And those gathered beneath it, may they never fall out.

Caroline: That's good.

Victor: To Shawn and Mimi.

Caroline: I'd better make rounds. I see some empty glasses. Can't have that. No way. Belle! What are you doing here? Is this some kind of bachelorette party?


Belle: No.

Caroline: Well, this is not like you to be sitting here alone...

Belle: I know.

Caroline: ...Drinking a pitcher of beer.

Belle: I know.

Caroline: Well, Shawn and Mimi's wedding is tomorrow. You're the Matron of Honor. Shouldn't you be home getting some beauty sleep?

Belle: I couldn't sleep.

Caroline: Yes, I don't have to ask why. Is this some kind of final goodbye to Shawn?

Belle: Not if I can help it.

Caroline: What did you say?

Belle: Yeah, as far as the wedding thing goes, you know, I don't know how yet, but I'm definitely stopping the wedding.


Shawn D.: Hey, Dad.

Bo: Hey, son.

Shawn D.: What are you doing out here all by yourself?

Bo: Well, this is an important celebration for your grandpop, but -- I don't know. I probably shouldn't have come down.

Shawn D.: Yeah, well, it's kind of hard to celebrate anything right now.

Bo: Well, you're celebrating your wedding tomorrow. I'm sorry your mom won't be there.

Shawn D.: Me too.

Bo: I'm glad that you decided to let me come by.

Shawn D.: Yeah. What do you say we go in together, huh?

Bo: Ah, no. Everybody will be offering their condolences about Zack and asking where your mom is.

Shawn D.: Dad, if you want to sit out here and feel sorry for yourself, that's fine. But there's something I want to say. The only thing that's keeping mom away right now is you. And you are the only one who can bring her back.


Carrie: Sami.

Sami: Oh, Carrie, you're awake.

Carrie: Sami, thanks for everything you did today. It was really nice of you to stick around.

Sami: Of course. What else am I gonna do? You're my sister. You only get the one family, you know? Lexie says you're gonna be fine. Do you miss your appendix yet?

Carrie: I'm thrilled it's gone.

Sami: Well, you see? You should have gone to the doctor as soon as you felt that first cramp.

Carrie: I should listen to my little sister more. Where's Austin?

Sami: He and Lucas, they, um, I think they're at the gift shop.

Carrie: Sami, you're upset about something. It isn't -- it isn't me, is it?

Sami: Um, no. I don't think I should talk to you about it 'cause you're recovering and everything.

Carrie: What? What is it?

Sami: Well, I guess you're gonna find out eventually. It's -- it's my mom.

Carrie: Marlena? What happened?

Sami: I don't know. There was an explosion and -- and a fire.

Carrie: Was she hurt?

Sami: John -- he said she could die. Carrie, I don't know what I'm gonna do.

Carrie: Sami.

Sami: I can't lose her. I can't let her die.

Carrie: Oh, my God.


John: So you said there's bad news about Doc? What is it?

Lexie: She hasn't regained consciousness as quickly as we'd like, given the nature of her injuries.

John: What does that mean?

Alex: It means that she's been through amnesia and every other trauma known to man. As a psychiatrist, I can tell you it's not so surprising that it's taking her a little bit longer to recover from her injuries. So, Dr. Carver, what you're saying is, Marlena's injuries are not life-threatening.

Lexie: Correct. Correct. She's suffering from shock, smoke inhalation, a few first-degree burns.

Alex: I want to see her.

John: No way. You're the lousy bastard that set that explosion that almost killed her.


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


Bo: Shawn, I have done everything I can to convince your mom to come home. I mean, she didn't even tell me where she -- I don't know how to get in touch with her.

Shawn D.: I know. I know. But if you could make her understand that you're not taking Chelsea's side in the trial -- you're not taking her side, are you?

Bo: You know, Shawn, I have loved your mom for most of my life. And she has always, I mean

always come first with me. I mean, this whole problem is -- bottom line is, we're all family, and we got to figure out a way to make this work.

Shawn D.: Just, without Zack and without mom, I'm sorry, it just doesn't feel like our family. And I don't want Chelsea to be part of our family.

Bo: I understand how you feel. Believe me. But you understand where I'm coming from, right?

Shawn D.: Yeah, I do. You have to choose between two women that you love -- mom and Chelsea.

Bo: Yeah. And I've been trying to protect them.

Shawn D.: But you -- Chelsea's like a stranger to you. You hardly know her.

Bo: But she is my daughter. Someday, when you have a daughter of your own, you'll understand what I'm saying here.

Shawn D.: Can I get a beer?

Bo: Oh, yeah.

Shawn D.: Thanks. I just had no idea there was so many different kinds of love.

Bo: What do you mean?

Shawn D.: I've loved Belle for as long as I can remember. I'll never stop. It's just things change. And I feel the same way about Mimi. I do love her.

Bo: But? Shawn, have you changed your mind about marrying Mimi 'cause you're still in love with Belle?


Caroline: Just how are you planning to stop the wedding?

Belle: I don't know.

Caroline: You wouldn't humiliate Shawn and Mimi and Philip --

Belle: I said, "I don't know."

Caroline: I just can't believe that you're serious about this.

Belle: Well, I am. I still love Shawn, and Shawn still loves me. And I'm not gonna let him go commit his life to some other woman.

Caroline: What about your husband, Philip?

Belle: You know, I love Philip. I truly do. But it's not the same. And I thought by now that I would, and I donít.

Caroline: I thought you made up your mind about this. You took sacred vows before God. And your husband, Philip, and you have a baby girl -- how can you turn your back on them and destroy their happiness? And destroy Shawn and Mimi's happiness, too?

Belle: The last thing that I want to do is hurt Philip or Mimi or Claire.. But I love Shawn too much to spend the rest of my life without him.

Victor: [Thinking] She's feeling that bond with Shawn because Claire's his baby.


Alex: When Marlena wakes up, you're going to end up feeling very foolish, John, as usual. 'Cause she's going to tell you I had no idea that she was going to show up at that cabin tonight. I certainly had no idea that you were going to show up there. Well, someone was targeted there tonight. It wasn't you. It wasn't Marlena. It was me. In fact, I narrowly missed being blown to bits myself.

Abe: You know, I'm afraid I have to agree with Alex. If there was an explosive device, it was probably set by Lois. Anyway, we'll know the truth after the fire department completes its arson investigation.

Alex: Damn right we will. In the meantime, I'd like to see my wife.

John: That's not gonna happen.

Alex: You have nothing to say about it.

Lexie: Well, I do. Marlena is my patient, and right now, I'm not allowing either of you to visit. You'd only upset her. She needs to rest. Excuse me.

Abe: I'm gonna go up to the cabin and check on the investigation.

John: All right. I'm coming with you.

Alex: Good luck. I'm gonna stay here and wait for Marlena to wake up.

John: No, you're not. You're the prime suspect. You're coming with us.

Alex: Commander Carver -- or should I say Former Commander -- obviously I am not under arrest here.

Abe: No, but I could find a way to insist you come along.

Alex: Fine. The sooner I'm cleared by the police, the sooner I can get back with Marlena.

John: The sooner Marlena gets her past back, the sooner you are out of her life.

Alex: She'll never remember you.


Sami: I'm sorry, Carrie. I didn't mean to upset you. It's just that I just don't know what to do. I mean, mom doesn't remember anything. What if we lose her? What if we lose her forever?

Lexie: Sami, you're not gonna lose her. Your mother's going to be all right.

Sami: Are you sure?

Lexie: Yes. Yes, she's resting right now.

Carrie: Thank God she's gonna be okay.

Lexie: Carrie, I need to talk to you. Privately, please.

Sami: Oh, I'd like to go sit with my mom. I promise I won't disturb her.

Lexie: All right.

Carrie: Give her my love.

Sami: Yeah, I will.


Carrie: Is everything all right?

Lexie: Your surgery was completely successful.

Carrie: Whew. You had me scared for a second. So when can I go home?

Lexie: We were able to do the laparoscopic procedure. There are no beds available in outpatient recovery, which is why you're here for the time being.

Carrie: Oh, I was wondering.

Lexie: Yeah. Anyhow, since we were able to avoid open surgery, you can get up, move around, and go home much more quickly.

Carrie: That's great news.

Lexie: Yes, it is. Listen, there's something that I need to discuss with you. Something we discovered because of your surgery.


Shawn D.: No, I haven't changed my mind about marrying Mimi. I love her. She was there for me, by my side, when Zack passed away.

Bo: Comforting each other and making a lifelong commitment are two different things.

Shawn D.: I know that, and I'm not taking my commitment to Mimi lightly.

Bo: But like you said, you and Belle, you've been together forever, and everyone thought you were gonna end up together.

Shawn D.: Yeah, but then she married Philip. For a long time, I had a lot of difficulty accepting that, but I have. I just wish Belle would.

Bo: What do you mean? She thinking of getting a divorce?

Shawn D.: I don't know. She just keeps telling me that she's still in love with me.

Bo: She -- okay. What do you say to that?

Shawn D.: Just that she's married to Philip and they have a child, and I'm marrying Mimi tomorrow.

Bo: Good for you.

Shawn D.: It's just -- I wouldn't say this to anyone except for you, and I can't even believe I'm thinking this with all the stuff that's going on, but I still feel torn between Mimi and Belle.

Bo: I know how rough that is.

Shawn D.: I know you do, because you had to choose between mom and Billie.


Caroline: Tell me something. Are you willing to give up your husband and your child to be with Shawn?

Belle: Give up Claire? No, I would never do that.

Caroline: You better face reality. If you leave Philip for another man, he can fight for custody of Claire.

Belle: And I've thought about that. Philip would never do that. He wants what's best for her and that's her mother -- me.

Caroline: And what about her father?

Belle: Well, Shawn would be a terrific stepfather. He loves her so much.

Caroline: And he's Philip's best friend. Let me ask you something. And I want you to be honest.

Belle: Okay, what?

Caroline: Mimi's your best friend, right?

Belle: Yes.

Caroline: Okay, so how did you feel when Mimi fell in love with Shawn after you married Philip?

Belle: Well, I --

Caroline: No. Be honest. You were hurt and angry, weren't you?

Belle: Yes, I was.

Caroline: Well, don't expect Philip to feel differently. And hurt and anger drive people to do things they never thought that they could. So Claire is his little girl, and he's a Kiriakis. And he'll do whatever it takes to hang on to her.

Belle: Victor never went after Bo, did he?

Caroline: No. He didn't know Bo was his son. Not until Bo was grown up.

Belle: But you knew all along. So did you stay married to Shawn because of your other children or because you truly loved him more?


Carrie: I thought you said the surgery went perfectly.

Lexie: Yes. Yes, it did.

Carrie: What did you find?

Lexie: It's not a problem yet, but it could be.

Carrie: What is it? Tell me.

Lexie: Well, okay. When I was reviewing your records, I saw that you had an ovarian cyst rupture when you were in Israel.

Carrie: Yeah. The doctor said I was fine.

Lexie: Yes. Yes, you are. But there is some residual scarring, which could affect your chances of conceiving.

Carrie: Are you telling me I could be infertile?


[Abe coughing]

Abe: Damn. There's nothing left of this cabin. It's been burned to the ground.

John: Good job, North. What the hell did you do? Douse the entire place with an accelerant?

Cop: Okay, Commander Carver.

Abe: Yeah, anything?

Cop: Yeah. I can tell you exactly how and why this explosion happened.


Sami: Hi, Mom. So I'm not supposed to disturb you, but telling you that I love you isn't going to disturb you, right? Telling you that I need you in my life? But maybe it will disturb you. It seems like you really wanted to not be around me lately. I mean, except for Belle, you really wanted to not remember anything about our life together -- your real life. You want to hear something pathetic? Right now, I don't have one single human on the entire planet that I can talk to. And the thing is, I'm really confused. The truth is, I still love Lucas. But I think that I could be happy with Austin, except for that he and Lucas are both still hung up on Carrie. And all I want -- all I've ever wanted is to be happy, to have a family and settle down. And I know that everything that has gone wrong with my life is my fault. I know every time I am given a choice, I make the wrong one. So I need you, Mom. Please, please, Mom, come back to me. I need your help so that I can make the right decision this time. Please come back to me, Mom. I miss you, and I love you so much. Please remember me. Remember us and forget about Alex North.

Marlena: [Crying] Oh!

John: You are back! You are back!

Marlena: John.


Bo: No, I -- I never really had to choose between your mom and Billie, 'cause I never loved and never will love anyone more than I love your mom.

Shawn D.: What I'm trying to say is there had to be a time when you did love Billie. I mean, you guys had a kid together, right?

Bo: Yeah, yeah. Well, we got involved when I thought your mom was dead. And when she came back --

Shawn D.: You didn't think it was really mom, and that's why you stayed with Billie.

Bo: Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I thought I saw your mom die right in front of my eyes. And when she first came back, she didn't know who she was or where she'd been. I thought it was just another DiMera trick. The timing was just -- we were at Maison Blanche, and I was getting married to Billie. It was wild. But as soon as I found out that she was your mom, there was no question who I wanted to be with. You know, since your mom and I were kids, she's the one I always wanted to be with. She's the love of my life. That's why it's so difficult for me to have her off someplace where I don't know where she is. But that's what she needs right now.

Shawn D.: I guess sometimes you just have to let go for a while. Sometimes you have to let go forever.

Bo: You talking about your feelings for Belle? Hey, Shawn, if you have those kinds of feelings for her, you've got some serious thinking to do before you get married tomorrow.

Victor: Happy St. Patrick's Day.


Caroline: Divorce was not an option. I loved my husband the day I married him, and I love him even more today. The affair with Victor never should have happened.

Belle: How can you say that? If it didn't happen, you wouldn't have Bo or Shawn Douglas or Zack or even Hope for that matter.

Caroline: Well, then I would never know what I missed. Belle...part of me will always love Victor just as part of you will always love Shawn. Shawn and you don't share a child, so it's really not the same situation as me and Victor.

Belle: Well, I wish Claire were Shawn's child. Everything would be a whole lot easier, wouldn't it?


Lexie: No. No, Carrie, we have no reason to believe that you are infertile. But the residual scarring could make it difficult to conceive. And the longer you wait...

Carrie: I know. I told you I've been thinking about it a lot. I just had my birthday.

Lexie: Yeah, I know. I know you said you'd been feeling like your biological clock is ticking.

Carrie: You know, you grow up thinking you're gonna have this wonderful husband and children and career. And I've been grown up a long time, and I don't have any of the above. I don't know if I ever will.

Lexie: Oh, honey, of course you will.

Carrie: I dream of bringing a child -- children -- into the world, teaching them and guiding them, supporting their school.

Lexie: Oh, yeah. I can see you as one of those PTA moms, you know, the school carnivals, the school plays, the book sales, the bake sales, silent auctions.

Carrie: I want to be a role model like that. Teach them about community service, share ideas, values, hopefully grow into good citizens that not only love but respect and be proud of.

Sami: [Thinking] So you have it all planned out. You just have to decide who your kids' father is gonna be, Carrie -- Austin or Lucas?


Marlena: No fair.

Marlena: No, wait. Wait! No, no, stop. You stop, okay. I got you.

John: No, I got you.


John: All right. So what did you find?

Cop: The explosion was caused by a faulty water heater. There's no evidence of arson.

Alex: I told you I was innocent.

John: So are you saying it definitely wasn't arson?

Cop: Not at all. In fact, there was something that might be suspicious. There was a wrench near the water heater, but it could have easily been used to make adjustments, open and close valves. There's certainly no evidence to prove there was a crime committed, and no way to pull prints from what's left of the water heater or the wrench.

Abe: So that's it, huh?

Cop: Yeah. Yeah. I'll file my report when we get back to Salem.

Abe: All right. Hey, man, thank you. Thanks for everything.

John: You may think you've gotten away with this, but I'm gonna find a way to prove that you murdered Lois and burned down her cabin. If the cops don't bust you for that, well, one way or another, I'm gonna take you out.


Caroline: You can't spend your life wishing, you know? Shawn isn't Claire's father, so you've got to stop thinking of that as a possibility.

Belle: I know. I just don't understand how things ended up like this.

Caroline: Belle, it's over. You can wonder all you want. You're not gonna have a life with Shawn. Darling, if you love him, you'll let him go. You'll let him find happiness with Mimi. Honey, you did great so far. Come on, now. You can do it. Just be strong. Belle, life isn't perfect. You can, though -- you can live it happily.


Victor: Is Belle all right? She seems upset.

Caroline: Oh, she's just having a terrible time accepting Shawn's marrying Mimi. I told her she had to give him up.

Victor: The way you did me.


Shawn D.: I'm marrying Mimi, Dad, end of story. What I feel for Belle and what she feels for me, it doesn't matter.

Bo: Whoa. Yeah. Yeah, it does matter. I mean, you can't go through with this wedding just because you promised. It's got to be what you want -- for Mimi's sake as well as yours. You love her, right, and you want what's best for her?

Shawn D.: Of course I do.

Bo: Okay, then answer me this, and answer honestly. If Belle wasn't married, would Mimi be the woman you chose to marry and spend the rest of your life with?


Lexie: Carrie, I know that it will happen for you. There's nothing more wonderful than having a child. But, you know, even with the best influences and parents, there's no guarantee of how they'll turn out. If you want proof of that, just look at your sister Sami. You know, you were raised in the same house by the same parents.

Carrie: Step-parents -- absentee parents. It was kind of crazy growing up.

Lexie: Yeah, well, I'm sure Sami will use that excuse for the rest of her life. But look at you. You turned out great.

Carrie: I don't know about that.

Lexie: Well, I do. Your children are going to be so blessed to have you as their mother. Just a word to the wise from someone who tried desperately for a very long time to conceive -- don't wait too long before you start trying.

Carrie: Well, it would be nice to find a husband first.

Lexie: Oh, come on, Carrie. You have two men in your life, Austin and Lucas, who are both crazy about you. And you did tell me that you have feelings for them. So at the risk of sounding crass, just choose one. You know, just choose one and marry him and get on with making all your dreams come true.

Carrie: Wish it could be that easy.

Lexie: Why isn't it? Don't tell me you're still worried about Sami.

Carrie: I told her that I was over him, and at the time, I meant it.

Lexie: So? You're entitled to change your mind, Carrie. You are not responsible for Sami's happiness. Do you really think that she gives a damn about yours?


John: Wow.

Marlena: That was my way of saying "thank you" for giving me back my life. I'll never forget what you did. Merry Christmas.

John: This is really fine.

Marlena: Wait. Wait. Wait. There's an inscription on the back.

John: "To JB for giving me time -- M."

Marlena: What beautiful, beautiful charms.

John: No, not just charms. Those are good-luck charms for your second chance at life.

Marlena: Yeah? My beloved is mine, and I am his until dawn breaks and the shadows fade. Turn, my beloved, and be thou ever mine.

John: As this ring encircles your finger, never forget that your love encircles my heart.

Marlena: John.


Alex: You just threatened me in front of an Officer of the Law. Keep it up, John, and you'll wind up in jail just where you belong. You know, your problem is you just can't accept the fact that your life with Marlena is over, that she's in love with and wants to stay with me. So if we're finished here, I'd like to get back to my wife.

John: Son of a bitch. I know he's behind the explosion that almost killed Marlena, Abraham.

Abe: John, John, look. Hey, hey. I'm your friend, and I believe that North is bad news, but there's nothing to implicate him in any wrongdoing. I mean, not with Marlena or Lois or this explosion.

John: Abraham, he told me what he was gonna do to Doc.

Abe: Look, North is smart. He's smart, but we don't have any proof of anything. And look, buddy, I am sorry, but Alex was right. If Marlena says she loves him and she wants to be with him, then their marriage, it's valid. And there's nothing that you can do about it. The only person that can save Marlena from being a permanent part of his life is Marlena herself.

John: Well, then she's just gonna have to get her memory back.

Abe: Well, even so, Alex has her under his spell. And there is still the possibility that she could choose to be with him.

John: Well, like I said before... I'll kill him before that happens.



Bo: You're taking too long to answer. Shawn, all things being equal, who would you marry, Belle or Mimi?

Shawn D.: I think you already know. But things aren't equal. And I'm marrying Mimi, and we're gonna have a wonderful life together. And Belle will accept that and finally commit to her wonderful life with Philip and Claire.


Victor: If you had it to do over again, would you still keep the truth from me about Bo being my son and stayed married to Shawn?

Caroline: Yes. But knowing I did the right thing doesn't mean I don't regret it.


Heather: Hey, Belle.

Belle: Heather.

Heather: So, big day tomorrow, huh? Shawn is gonna marry your best friend...Meems. Don't tell me you drank this whole pitcher by yourself. Oh, drowning your sorrows, aren't you?

Belle: No, I'm not.

Heather: Oh, well, then let's have a toast -- to Belle.

Belle: You mean to Mimi.

Heather: No, I mean to you. The girl everyone thought would be the happiest woman in Salem turns out to be the biggest idiot, 'cause she let Shawn Brady get away. Cheers.

Belle: That's what you think, Heather. Caroline, I'm gonna do the right thing. One way or the other, I'm gonna stop that wedding.


Marlena: John, I remember. I remember us.


Belle: I know that I only have myself to blame. I just don't know how I can stand by and watch him marry Mimi.


Carrie: There's something I need to talk to you both about.

Austin: Good, because Lucas and I need to talk to you, too.


Lexie: Sami, what the hell do you think you're doing?

Sami: It's about time we had a little chat, Lexie.
