Bo: Hey, Billie. What are you doing here?
Bo: Something wrong?
Billie: Oh, I just visited Jack.
Bo: How's he doing?
Billie: Not too good. They're not sure if he's responding to the trial drugs.
Bo: Yeah. It's got to be difficult for Jen and the kids and Frankie.
Billie: Yeah. What about you? What are you doing here?
Bo: Oh, I came to pick up some prenatals for Hope.
Billie: So, are you guys back together?
Bo: No, no. We -- the pharmacy left a message on my cell by mistake, and I thought instead of having her run all the way down here, I'd take them out to her.
Billie: What happened?
Bo: She doesn't want to talk to me.
Billie: You're not giving up, are you?
Patrick: All right, well, kitchen sink is as good as new. Anything else you want fixed?
Hope: I'm sure I could think of something. Of course, I haven't seen the bill yet.
Patrick: Hmm, yeah, well, let's see. For you...free of charge.
Hope: Thank you. You're the best.
Patrick: I'm glad you called me. You know, sooner or later, we're going to have to talk about this. You're having my baby. What are we gonna do about that?
Carrie: I decided to marry Lucas because I wanted a baby of my own. I let myself think that it was a sign that Austin and I weren't meant to be. I wanted it so badly that I even had morning sickness when I wasn't even pregnant. I was stupid. How selfish. Look how many people's lives I've affected when I can't even have a baby at all.
Lexie: Carrie, there is a small chance.
Carrie: You said there was less than 1%.
Lexie: Well, yeah. Are you worried about your marriage?
Carrie: Lucas won't abandon me, if that's what you're asking. But he was so excited about being a father again. If I had known, I never would have put him through this. I never would have married him.
Lexie: Oh, Carrie.
Carrie: I've made such a mess of everything.
Sami: That ring is perfect.
Austin: It's the one you wanted.
Sami: I know. I know, but --
Austin: But what?
Sami: I can't accept it.
Austin: Can't accept it? Sami, what are you talking about? I proposed to you weeks ago. You said yes.
Sami: I know. But I can't take the ring, Austin. It's too expensive.
Austin: You knew how much it cost when we looked at it.
Sami: You're right, but I never thought you were really gonna get it for me. I mean, I like the Taj Mahal, but I don't expect to live there.
Austin: Well, that's great, because I didn't buy it.
Sami: Oh, God, Austin, I'm so selfish. Why do you even love me?
Austin: Well, I can give you a couple of reasons.
Sami: What about our company, Austin? You can't afford a ring like this. We should be spending it on the company, right? I mean, I'd be happy with anything.
Austin: I want you to have what you want. You were very clear at the jeweler's. You picked this one. That's what I love about you. You're decisive. Okay. I'm gonna try this again. Sami, you have been disappointed so many times in your life, but that is all in the past. From now on, I would find it my pleasure to give you all that's in my power to give. I want to be your husband now and forever. Will you be my wife?
Sami: Yes. Yes, of course I will be, Austin.
Austin: Whew. Okay.
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives.
Lexie: Carrie, I've seen you and Lucas together. It looks to me like you have the real thing. And love can carry us through so many of life's hardships.
Carrie: I do love Lucas, but... [Sighs] I feel so awful saying this. It's not the same kind of love that I feel for Austin. Austin wanted to marry me, Lexie. I wanted it, too. It's what my heart wanted more than anything. When you told me that Austin and I couldn't have healthy children together, I didn't know what to do. Lucas loves me, too, and my biological clock was ticking louder and louder. So, I chose the family with Lucas over my love for Austin. Now that I know that I can't have children with anybody... oh, God. If I had known that I couldn't have children of my own, I would have married Austin. I feel like I'm the worst person in the world.
Lexie: No, Carrie, you are not a bad person. You were just confused. [Sighs] Carrie... it wasn't your fault.
Austin: Okay. Okay, all right, I hate to break up this moment, but I do have to go downstairs and -- dinner, dessert, all that stuff. Open up another bottle of champagne. And, you guys, let's get this party started, right? Okay. Whoo! I'll be right back.
Sami: Go ahead, say it. I'm a coward.
E.J.: Understandable, I think. You have cold feet about telling the man you love that you're not quite as reformed as he thinks.
Sami: Then you agree with me, right, that I can't tell Austin the truth? I mean, look at this night, I mean, everything he did. I can't ruin his happiness.
E.J.: Samantha, he's happy because he trusts in your love. And you need to come clean if he's gonna keep trusting in your love. You need to tell him before somebody else does.
Hope: I'm gonna make some tea.
Patrick: Whoa, whoa, I think we can discuss the situation without tea, don't you?
Hope: I guess I'm a little nervous.
Patrick: Yeah. I don't know why that would be. I mean, you're having a baby. I'm the father. You're married to someone else. There's no problem there. It's a piece of cake.
Hope: I don't know. For the first time in my life, I don't quite know what to say. Isn't that ridiculous?
Patrick: Well, then, let me start. The bottom line is, I want to be involved in this child's life, if you'll let me.
Hope: Of course. I'm not gonna change my mind about that.
Patrick: Thanks. That means a lot. You’ve known this forever, Hope, but Bo is the third side of this triangle, you know? And if you want to work on your marriage --
Hope: Patrick -- Patrick... I don't know what I want. [Cellphone rings]
Patrick: Oh. Excuse me. I need to take this. Hello?
Mimi: Patrick, I need you.
Patrick: Mimi, what's wrong? Where are you?
Mimi: At the trauma center.
Patrick: All right, I'll be right there. It's my sister.
Hope: Is something wrong?
Patrick: I don't know. I hope not. Look, I'll talk to you. Look, I'm here for you, okay? Whatever you want, Hope. Just remember that.
Hope: I know, and I appreciate it. Thank you, Patrick.
Patrick: Okay, I'll talk to you soon.
Bo: You know, there have been times over the last few months I've wondered what I'm trying to hold on to with Hope. Is it the past or k we've got a future together?
Billie: What'd you come up with?
Bo: Well, I want her. I want us, but it's not gonna be the same, you know, for a lot of reasons... Zack, Chelsea, and she just happens to be having some other guy's baby. You know, that's it right there. Even though this baby isn't mine, I still want to be her husband. But the thing is, she doesn't want me.
Billie: Yes, she does. Yes, she does. We both know she does. She's just angry. She's upset. She's stubborn. But you can be just as stubborn as she can be, so you have to convince her to listen to her heart because she knows deep down inside that she would be crazy to turn her back on you.
Bo: Yeah, I don't know about that. But I am gonna do everything I can to be there for her, help her out, let her know that I'm there for her. You know, it's true what they say. When you lose something, it really shows you how much it means to you. And I miss Hope. You know that ache you get in your heart?
Billie: Yeah, I've been there.
Bo: I'm sorry. I keep sticking my foot in my mouth.
Billie: No, no, no. Come on. Stop it. You got a lot on your plate right now, and you love Hope. And I understand. But I'm also your friend, Bo. And you have been a better friend to me than I even deserve, so if there is anything I can do to help you get Hope back, you just have to ask.
Bo: Billie --
Billie: No, that's what friends are for, right?
Patrick: Mimi, what's the problem?
Mimi: Everything. I'm going to lose Shawn.
E.J.: Dazzling. Almost blinding, isn't it?
Sami: E.J., please understand. This is everything I have ever wanted. I have come so close so many times. I have walked down the aisle. I have stood at that altar. I've even gotten through the vows a couple of times. But I either get walked out on or the marriage is annulled. I am a joke in this town.
E.J.: Oh, come on, Samantha. I don't believe that.
Sami: Believe it. But it is gonna be different this time. This is the third time that I'm trying to marry Austin after -- and you know what they say about the third time, right?
E.J.: Bad luck runs in threes?
Sami: Third time's the charm.
Sami: Look, this ring makes everything different, E.J. It makes it real. So, I have to ask you to let us unpostpone the wedding.
E.J.: You're kidding, right?
Sami: No. You're my friend, and you said you wanted to help me. Well, this is how you can help me. You wanted us to postpone the wedding so we would focus on you and your account. And I promise I will. I will give you 100%. I will be your personal slave if you would just let us get married right now. We had what, like a dozen conversations about this and you're deciding now that, you know, "I'm not gonna tell Austin the truth"?
Sami: E.J., I can't tell him the truth. He will never forgive me. If someone else does it, that's different. If someone else tells him the truth, then I can blame them and I can live with that. But if I do this to myself, I honestly -- I don't think I could live with myself.
E.J.: You're actually serious, aren't you?
Sami: I am completely serious. E.J., once we're married, it'll be different. Austin won't want to get divorced, and there could even be a baby on the way.
E.J.: Oh, Samantha.
Sami: Please understand. I am not telling Austin that I lied to him. And you can't tell him, either. I need you to swear. Swear to me that you won't tell him. Swear it on your mother's life.
Austin: Okay. Brown at 375 for an hour. 15 minutes to go. Asparagus is chilling. Chilling asparagus, and we have dessert. Aha. Lileatin
Austin: I hope you appreciate all the hard work I put into making this pie.
Carrie: Oh, I do. Turning the oven knob takes great upper-body strength.
Austin: And dexterity.
Austin: Well, and here I thought I fooled you into thinking that I baked it myself.
Carrie: When you can buy a pie this good, why spend time baking, especially when there are other more fun things you could be doing with your time? Where is that whipped cream?
Austin: It is the spray kind in a can.
Carrie: It better be. Give that. Okay, come here.
Austin: And what is this for?
Carrie: Uh-huh. This is to make your lips softer.
Austin: Uh-huh. And why would I want to do that?
Carrie: In case anyone wants to kiss you. But it better be me.
Billie: What's going on? I knocked twice.
Austin: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Billie: What's going on? What's cooking?
Austin: I am making dinner for Sami. [Clears throat]
Billie: And what were you dreaming about?
Billie: Come on, Austin. Hello! You may be cooking dinner for Sami, but you're thinking about Carrie, aren't you?
Lexie: Carrie -- [Cellphone beeps]
Carrie: Check your message. It might be important.
Lexie: So is what I have to tell you.
Carrie: I can wait 30 seconds.
Lexie: Okay. It's a text message.
Carrie: Is it bad news? "Don't do it." Don't do what?
Carrie: Lexie. Hey, I'm worried about you.
Bo: Hi. Bo Brady. I used to live here.
Bo: I've got a reason for stopping by. I've got your prenatal vitamins. The pharmacy called my cell by mistake, and I thought I'd save you the trouble.
Hope: Thank you. You didn't have to do this. I could have picked them up myself.
Bo: Yeah, I know. I just wanted to stop by. I miss being with you... being us. Hope, you got to give me another chance.
Patrick: Mimi, come on. Calm down. I know this whole in vitro mix-up is a horrible thing to go through, but it's gonna be okay.
Mimi: No, it's not, Patrick. Belle is having my husband's baby, not me -- Belle -- the girl he loved practically his whole life.
Patrick: Look, can't you have some faith in the guy you married?
Mimi: I'm trying, but after what I heard between Belle and Shawn today, I might as well pack my bags and get out of town. My life with Shawn is over.
Austin: [Scoffs] What makes you think I'm dreaming about Carrie?
Billie: Because the last time I saw you with that little googly-eyed look on your face, you were with her. And that's the look that you just had.
Austin: You are so wrong. I'm in love with Sami. And you know, in case you've already forgotten, Carrie is married to our brother, so do not cause trouble.
Billie: I'm not trying to make any trouble. Just be straight with me, Austin.
Austin: [Sighs] You know what? I will tell you the truth. Yeah, I'm worried about her. Do you know about the fire?
Billie: What? What fire?
Austin: Last night, after I saw you, when you left, I looked up, and Lucas' apartment was on fire.
Billie: Oh, my God! Was anybody hurt?
Austin: Carrie was. She had smoke inhalation, and she was unconscious the whole way in the ambulance.
Billie: Lucas must have been terrified.
Austin: We all were.
Billie: Is she okay now?
Austin: Well, she got released, but Lexie said she wanted to see her and Lucas tonight at the hospital. I don't know. I mean, I just hope the smoke didn't hurt the baby. So, I am worried.
Billie: Yeah, I can see that. But actually, I'm here because I'm worried about you.
Austin: Billie, I've got a lot going on right now. I've got a business on the verge of, like, huge success. A beautiful woman just accepted my proposal. Everything is great.
Billie: Listen, Austin, I have a feeling it's the wrong beautiful woman, okay? I know what you told me last night, but you are not fooling anybody, including me and not even yourself.
Austin: Hey. Hey.
Billie: Be honest with me. Tell me the truth. You told me that you were still in love with Carrie and that you always would love her. So, do you really think it's a good idea to marry Sami?
E.J.: You want me to swear on my mother's life. How do you even know I have a mother?
Sami: Everybody has a mother, E.J.
E.J.: That doesn't necessarily mean that she's either alive or in my life.
Sami: I'm sorry.
E.J.: Yeah, well, don't be. Speaking hypothetically, you know? I just think, Samantha, that sometimes you need to think before you speak. Then again, of course, sometimes you think too much, like this thing with Austin. You've been going backwards and forwards and backwards and forwards.
Sami: I'm backwards now. I'm staying here. I'm not gonna tell Austin the truth. And you have to promise me that you won't tell him my secret, either.
E.J.: I don't know your secret, Sami.
Sami: You know I'm keeping one, and that's enough. E.J., Please. Please promise me. I'm begging you.
E.J.: You're begging me.
Sami: Begging. I thought about it before I said it, and I meant it. I'll do anything.
E.J.: I really don't know if begging needs to be part of your strategy, so I'm a little bit more concerned with what exactly you would do to me if I did tell Austin, say.
Sami: Believe me, you don't want to find out. Please. E.J., please just be my friend. Please. Be a pal. Come on.
E.J.: "You don't want to find out. Be a pal, E.J." Right. Okay. You know what? If I was any real friend to you, I'd go and tell Austin the truth right now and force you to be honest with him, but you know what? You can have it your way.
Sami: Thank you. Let me explain something to you, E.J., so maybe you can understand. Look at these initials.
E.J.: Lucas and Carrie.
Sami: And these?
E.J.: Carrie and Austin.
Sami: My sister has her initials carved all over this town.
E.J.: And you don't?
Sami: That's right. I don’t.
E.J.: And this bothers you?
Sami: Yeah, it bothers me a lot. I've spent my whole life living in my perfect sister's shadow. And say what you want, all right? I said it about myself. If it makes me stuck as a 15-year-old, it makes sense 'cause that's when everything changed.
E.J.: What do you mean?
Sami: I lost my mom when I was very young. She was taken from us. And then a miracle happened and she came back when I was 15.
E.J.: That's wonderful.
Sami: It was. And I-I thought my whole life was gonna be perfect from then on. But of course I was wrong. My parents ended up getting divorced, and everything else sort of spiraled from there. But for a couple months when I was 15, I couldn't have been happier. I had a great relationship with my sister, and my mom and dad were together and happy. I was the happiest I've ever been. And that's when I met Austin. Austin makes me feel safe and secure and loved. And that is all I have ever wanted. Anyway, I'm sorry for putting all that on you. I just...
E.J.: I'm glad you told me. That explains a lot.
Sami: That's why I can't tell Austin the truth. E.J., I can't lose him.
Lexie: Uh, oh, uh, that. Um... one of the nurses and I have given up caffeine, and we're using the buddy system. And she knows that I have the worst coffee cravings about right now.
Carrie: Yeah, me too. Looks like I gave it up for no reason.
Carrie: I still can't believe this is happening. So, what were you gonna tell me?
Lexie: Um...Carrie, you know, I really don't think I should be getting involved in your personal decisions.
Carrie: Please, Lexie. I could use some advice.
Lexie: [Sighs] Um, okay, um... all right. Well, just take it from someone who is going through a divorce right now. You need to let go of what might have been and give Lucas a chance. He loves you so much, Carrie. If after a year or so, you feel anything for Austin and your love for Lucas hasn't deepened, well, then maybe you should see a counselor. And if that doesn't do the trick, then and only then should you see a lawyer. But work on your marriage, Carrie. You know, I wish Abe would give me that chance.
Hope: It's not as easy as you want it to be, Bo -- not for me.
Bo: Look, Hope --
Hope: Not after everything that has happened in the past few months.
Bo: What do you want? Just tell me. I'll do anything. What? What is it?
Hope: I want what I don't have, what I can never have again. I want to see Zack coming down those stairs, running into my arms, asking me, "mommy, read me another book.." And of course I would say, "of course. How many books do you want mommy to read you?"
Bo: I'm sorry, Fancy Face. I... I would give anything. I'd give my life to bring him back.
Hope: You can't rewrite history.
Bo: No. You know, I have the same nightmare every night -- just going over that horrible night and you know, trying to change the outcome. You got to know I want that more than anything.
Hope: I know that you love Zack. I know that. But when Chelsea came into our lives, you chose her over me, over our sons. And all the problems that Shawn was having -- you turned your back on your son.
Bo: No, Hope, I didn’t. I did what I thought was best.
Bo: I thought he needed tough love.
Hope: What he needed was you. He needed you, his father, for advice, for a shoulder to cry on. But you felt that your daughter and Billie, they needed you more.
Bo: Hope, I don't love -- [Sighs] I have loved one woman. I have needed one woman. And it's always been you -- always. I will live the rest of my life being the best husband I can be to you and the best father I can be to this baby.
Hope: If it was only that simple.
Bo: It doesn't matter that I'm not this baby's father.
Hope: Oh, Bo, come on. Are you going to tell me you won't resent that? You've always hated Patrick.
Bo: Yes, Hope, that's true. But like you said, we can't change history. All we can do is move forward and create the best, the happiest family we can create. Now, that may seem impossible to you, but I believe in us and our love. And I think we can do it.
Hope: And what about Patrick? I need to do what's right for this baby that I'm carrying, and that means having his biological father in his or her life. Bo, honestly... are you gonna be able to handle that?
Patrick: All right, Mimi, look. Try to calm down, okay? Just tell me what you heard Shawn and Belle say today.
Mimi: Oh, I want to rip her face off just thinking about it.
Patrick: Mimi, come on.
Mimi: She told Shawn she's happy she's having his baby. Bitch, right? Here Philip and I are, hysterical about having a baby with each other. We don't love each other. I don't want a kid who looks like Philip. Philip doesn't want a kid who looks like me. We want children with the people we married. But Belle and Shawn, they're totally bonding over the whole thing. Shawn's being protective about keeping Belle safe because she's having his baby. It's driving me crazy. And she just got pregnant. I don't think I could handle nine months of this. And the way Shawn looked at her today, it was right there in his eyes. He still loves her. My worst nightmare is coming true.
Patrick: Shawn married you. He loves you.
Mimi: Maybe. But now he's got the best reason in the world to be with Belle.
Austin: Okay. I am gonna say this one more time. And then I would appreciate it if we left the subject alone from now on.
Billie: Look, I'm not trying to cause trouble, okay?
Austin: Well, you are, okay? You know exactly what I'm gonna say. I love Carrie. I always have. But we both know she's with our brother now. She chose him. Was I surprised? Hell, yeah. All right? You know, sometimes I still can't believe it. But she's made her decision. She's gonna have his baby. You know, I got to move on. I'm out of the picture. I've got to move on. Samantha's got to move on. What are we supposed to do, live in limbo for the rest of our lives? I don't understand. What's the alternative?
Billie: Hey, I'm all about moving on, trust me. But does it have to be with Sami?
Austin: You're really starting to sound like mom. Are we gonna have this conversation every day from now on?
Billie: Listen to me, Austin. Listen to me. Bo moved on with me when he thought Hope was dead, but he still loved her and he always will. And how do you think that worked out for me? Listen, if you really love Sami -- which personally, I don't think you do. But you like her a whole hell of a lot, and I can see how you could confuse that with love. But don't marry her on the rebound when you're not 100% sure and when your heart still belongs to somebody else because it is not fair to either one of you. And Sami's a fragile person. And when she gets hurt, she lashes out and hurts the whole world.
Austin: I'm not gonna hurt her, Billie. And she is not going to hurt me. Now... would you please join us for dinner?
Billie: Why do I sense there's an ulterior motive?
Austin: No ulterior motive, you know? It's just we're family. We should all learn to get along. E.J.'s gonna be there.
Billie: Aha. I knew there was something. I knew it. Listen, thank you very much. It's very sweet of you. And I love you. But, no, thanks.
Austin: Well, hey, wait a second. What are you afraid of? Do you want to live in limbo the rest of your life, too?
Billie: I am not interested in E.J. Wells. I'm going to take my sweet time finding the right partner. And I think you should do the same.
Carrie: You're right, Lexie. Love isn't the only thing that matters in life. Honor is important, too -- maybe more important. And Austin's getting ready to marry my sister. I'd be incredibly selfish if I was to mess that up after all the heartbreak that she's been through. And I do -- I owe it to Lucas to work on our marriage. I do care about him. It's just it's not the kind of love that I feel for Austin. But it has to be enough to work things out.
E.J.: You could have any man you wanted. Are you sure Austin is the man of your dreams?
Sami: Since I was a teenager.
E.J.: Then tell him the truth. You need to get his forgiveness, Sami. Then you can at least start your marriage with a clean slate.
Sami: I'm sorry. I don't have the nerve.
E.J.: You're selling yourself short. You've been through this with Austin before. You can go through it again. Samantha, if it doesn't work out, you know there's going to be a whole line of men queuing up to take you out.
Bo: As long as you and I are together, I can handle anything, including Lockhart being a hands-on dad.
Hope: You say that --
Bo: I mean it, Hope. How else could I say it?
Hope: I don't know. But the biggest problem you and I have isn't Patrick.. It's not even Chelsea. It's you. I don't trust you anymore. So, what would it take? I-I-I don't know what it would take for me to trust you.
Bo: Come on. There's got to be something I can do.
Hope: Prove to me you didn't tamper with the evidence that kept Chelsea out of jail. Then, okay, maybe we can try to work on rebuilding our marriage.
Patrick: I know a little something about this, Mimi. Hope's pregnant with my child, and we haven't even talked about our future together. I mean, I'm pretty sure she still loves Bo.
Mimi: But she loves you, too, doesn't she?
Patrick: I love her. It's complicated. And even though she's pregnant with my baby, it doesn't mean we'll be together. It doesn't mean we won't, either, but there's nothing sure about it.
Mimi: But Belle has never stopped loving Shawn. She wants him for herself, and now she's got the perfect excuse in the world to be with him whenever she wants. She's carrying his child. For the rest of our lives, she'll be in my face -- she and the child she shares with my husband.
Patrick: All right, well, I admit it's an unusual situation. But just because two people feel a bond over having a child together doesn't mean they'll get involved romantically..
Mimi: But they've already been involved romantically. And when you still love a person and you already share a child together --
Patrick: Whoa, already share a child? Who already has a child?
Mimi: That's what I need to tell you. Shawn is Claire's biological father.
Hope: I want more than anything to believe in you again.
Bo: And you will. I'm not gonna lose you, Fancy Face.
Mimi: What if when I tell him, he does leave me?
Patrick: It's just a chance you're gonna have to take, honey.
Belle: I didn't marry Philip in good faith. My wedding vows were a lie.
Kayla: Who the hell are you?
Woman: I'm his wife. Who the hell are you?
