Chelsea: Max? Max?
Abby: Chelsea, he's obviously not here.
Chelsea: Then where is he?
Abby: Well, Stephanie left dune after Max, her motorcycle is still out front, and her backpack and helmet are still here, so wherever they are, they're together.
Stephanie: You realize neither one of us is gonna sleep tonight. Max?
Max: I'm sorry. What did you say?
Stephanie: We shouldn't be having all this caffeine.
Max: I probably won't get any sleep anyway, right?
Stephanie: You shouldn't let Chelsea get to you.
Max: If she wanted to date other guys, then why did she say she just wanted to see me?
Stephanie: If you want my opinion, she's crazy.
Max: Look, I know you don't like her very much --
Stephanie: She doesn't deserve you.
Max: You don't know her like I do, Steph.
Stephanie: What I do know is if I had a guy like you, there's no way I'd treat you the way she does.
Sami: I didn't mean to upset Carrie. I hope she's okay. I wonder what's wrong.
Austin: I'm gonna check and see if she's okay. I'll be right back.
Sami: [Sighs] I know what you're gonna say.
E.J.: No, you don’t. That was quite a story -- quite a litany of deeds you alluded to. And your friends -- they forgave you for all this?
E.J.: And this thing you've done -- this is the worst thing?
Sami: I guess that's debatable.
E.J.: Bloody hell.
Sami: Wait a second. You told me that you thought Austin would forgive me no matter what I had done.
E.J.: Well, he's forgiven you in the past, so why not? Samantha, you need to tell Austin the truth now. Are you even listening to me?
E.J.: I don't think you are, Samantha. You need to grow up. You need to learn to take responsibility for your actions.
Lucas: Please, please stop that. I know you're upset because we're not pregnant, but, baby, we can always adopt.
Carrie: Stop it, Lucas! No! I can’t. I made a huge mistake.
Lucas: Carrie, wait a minute. What are you talking about?
Carrie: I want to be pregnant. I want a baby of my own, and now that I know that I c-- we rushed our wedding because we thought I was pregnant when I never was, and...I don't know how to say it.
Lucas: You don't know how to say what?
Carrie: [Sighs deeply] Lucas, I only married you because I thought I was pregnant.
Kayla: Let's get out of here. I don't like the effect this place has on you.
Steve: No, this is where I belong.
Kayla: No, you belong with me and your daughter.
Steve: That's what you want to believe.
Steve: Being back here -- Cincinnati, in this place -- I realize this is the only life I can relate to. All right, listen, I spent a lot of time in Salem with you and Jack and Stephanie. It was like total immersion, right? I didn't remember one thing. Not one thing was remotely familiar to me.
Kayla: It wasn't a lot of time, and maybe if you had hung in there a little bit longer.
Steve: It's not fair to you. You're putting your life on hold for me. I don't want you to do that. I really think it's best if we go our separate ways now.
Kayla: You mean that.
Steve: Yeah, I do. I don't want to hurt you any more than I already have, but I think it's time for us to say goodbye.
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives.
Lucas: Look, honey, we -- we moved up our wedding date because of the baby, yeah, but that wasn't the only reason. I mean, we love each other. You told me that you loved me even before you found out the test was positive.
Carrie: I know. It's just that, ever since we talked to Lexie, I'm just getting more and more upset.
Lucas: I can see that. I wish there was something I could do to make you feel better.
Carrie: I just need a little time to think about everything.
Lucas: Yeah, that's what we'll do. We'll just take things slow from now on, okay? Starting with our honeymoon? We'll spend a little more time in Italy, get to know each other better, get closer. That way, when we come back, we can make decisions about things, talk about the adoption then. Everything's gonna be fine.
Carrie: [Sighing] Oh, boy.
Lucas: What? "Oh, boy," you have a headache?
Carrie: Bad headache. [Sighs]
Lucas: All right, let me get you some aspirin, okay? [Smooches]
Sami: I know. I know. I have to tell him.
E.J.: What's stopping you? You've had a dozen opportunities.
Sami: I'm afraid, okay?
E.J.: Of what? What is the worst thing that can happen?
Sami: You know the answer to that.
E.J.: Okay, he calls off the engagement. He takes back the ring, right?
Sami: And he'll stop being my fiancé. He'll stop being my friend. I'll lose him from my life entirely.
E.J.: If you tell Austin that you kept him and Carrie apart, he will forgive you. Now, it may take him a little bit of time...
Sami: Try my entire lifetime.
E.J.: ...But you need to tell him, Samantha, because you've told me that Austin is somebody who values honesty above everything else.
Marlena: Roman and I have been down some difficult roads with Sami...and we are able to handle whatever you want to tell us.
Austin: You two have put up with a lot from Sami, and you deserve to know why I'm not gonna marry her. But she's gonna have to be the one to tell you. What happened between me and Sami is, well, private. And I know that some of you are gonna be disappointed because you can't wait to throw stones, but, as far as I'm concerned, none of us live in glass houses, so just think of it like that. But whatever any of you say or do to Sami from here on out, I don't want to know about it, I don't want to hear about it. I'm not marrying Sami today or any day, and I don't care if I ever hear the name "Sami Brady" again.
Austin: So...that's all, folks.
Sami: [Sobbing] Austin!
Sami: If Austin hears what I've done from someone else, he will take my ring back and he will throw it in the Salem River. I can't let that happen. I can't lose Austin again, E.J. I'll die.
E.J.: Samantha, your future lies in your hands. You make your decision. Are you gonna risk a few moments of hell by telling him the truth, or are you gonna risk a lifetime of hell by letting him find out from somebody else? You need to make a choice.
Chelsea: If they're still together, that means Stephanie's making her move on him now. I just know it.
Abby: Do you even care?
Chelsea: Of course I care.
Abby: Well, you sure don't act like it. Chelsea, the only time you show any interest in Max is when you know another girl likes him. The rest of the time, it's "Max who?"
Chelsea: That is so not true, Abby. Where could they be? Oh, my God. I bet they're at lookout point. I bet you that's exactly where she took him.
Abby: Max and Stephanie are not involved, okay? They're just friends. She's helping him with his race car, and I think that's really nice, considering him being her competition.
Chelsea: Yeah, and you don't think she has any ulterior motive whatsoever?
Abby: Maybe Max wants to see you sweat it out for a change.
Chelsea: What's that supposed to mean?
Abby: Your little show you put on at Dune. If you are trying to make him mad, then congratulations. You've succeeded. Luckily, Stephanie is not interested in him.
Chelsea: Are you kidding me? Of course she is.
Abby: I'm serious, okay? Her and my mom are very close, and they said she's really focused on her career. She hasn't even had a boyfriend yet.
Chelsea: Really? Abby, do you think she's still a virgin?
Abby: It wouldn't surprise me. I heard my mom and Aunt Kayla talking. They said she wants to wait till marriage.
Chelsea: What, does this run in your family or something?
Abby: I don't know, but, um, you being a part of it --
Chelsea: No, no, no, no, no. I'm not from that part. I'm from the other part -- the wild part, the one I thought little racy cousin Stephanie was from, but obviously I was wrong. This is very interesting. We need to find out more about her. We need to find out, like, everything that there is to know about her, okay?
Abby: Chelsea, what are you thinking?
Chelsea: Isn't it obvious?
Abby: Chelsea, don’t.
Chelsea: Relax, okay? I'm just gonna peek inside her backpack.
Abby: No, you're not. I'm not gonna let you.
Max: Wait a minute. When we were back at the garage and you were talking, you had mentioned some guy you were interested in.
Stephanie: Was interested.
Max: That was fast. What happened?
Stephanie: I think he might be interested in someone else.
Max: What, is he crazy? What's wrong with this guy?
Stephanie: Makes you wonder, doesn't it? Anyway, back to your love life. I'm sorry Chelsea's giving you such a hard time.
Max: It's my own fault. I was pressuring her into not seeing other guys. Obviously she's not ready for a serious relationship.
Stephanie: You know who she reminds me of is our cousin Sami.
Max: What? No. No way. She is nothing like Sami Brady.
Kayla: I can't say goodbye to you. Not again. I can't believe that's what you really want.
Steve: Look, I don't know who I am. I don't know who you are, either.
Kayla: I'm your wife.
Steve: I don't know how we can have a meaningful relationship based on a past that one of us doesn't remember.
Kayla: We'll start over. We'll get to know each other all over again. I thought that's what we were doing. And I will still hold out hope that someday, you will remember what we had.
Steve: Yeah. Like I told you before, I know this isn't a case of simple amnesia.
Kayla: No, you don't know that.
Steve: Yes, somebody did this to me purposely.
Kayla: To take us apart? To break us up?
Steve: Yeah, I think so. I don't know.
Kayla: Well, then, you know what? I have declared war on that person. They have taken away my marriage, my family, and you know what? That makes me want to fight. But that's not what you want, is it? You don't want to fight for us.
Steve: No, Kayla. I don’t.
Sami: Obviously, I should be the one to tell Austin the truth, but I'm probably too late already.
E.J.: Well, would it have been better if you'd told him sooner? I'm sure.. Then again, it would have been better if you'd never done this in the first place.
Sami: Well, I'm sure that's true, but if I hadn't, I wouldn't be with Austin right now. Maybe the person doesn't know what I've done. Maybe they're just guessing. I mean, maybe they're just making an educated guess based on the bad things that I've done in the past, and I would be ruining my life telling Austin the truth for nothing.
E.J.: The truth is never for nothing. And, Samantha, do you really want to take that gamble? For all we know, this person could be writing another note right now, and my greatest fear is that he or she or whoever it is could take that note and put it directly into Austin's hand.
Lucas: Hey, Austin.
Carrie: No aspirin?
Lucas: No, she had a bunch of little girly bottles with the hearts on them, but no aspirin. Guess she's used to giving headaches, not getting them.
Austin: Come on, man. Let's not start, all right?
Lucas: Sorry. Can't help myself. You know me. Old habits die hard.
Austin: You okay?
Lucas: You know what? I'll go to the drugstore for you and get you some aspirin. It'll make you feel better, okay?
Lucas: Austin, will you do me a favor? Will you look after Carrie while I'm gone?
Austin: Yeah, yeah, go ahead.
Lucas: Thanks. I won't be long.
Carrie: Thanks, Lucas.
Austin: [Exhales sharply] Can I get you anything -- tea or water?
Carrie: No. Thanks.
Austin: Before I came in, I overheard what you said about the baby. I'm really sorry.
Carrie: Oh, Austin. I can't do anything right. I feel like such a failure.
Max: There's only one Sami Brady, and I'm happy to say that Chelsea, even at her worst, is not as bad.
Stephanie: I'm sorry if I hit a nerve. I mean, maybe they're on different levels. I mean, Sami is older, has a better résumé, but give Chelsea time. She's Sami on training wheels.
Max: Look, Chelsea has had a lot of loss in her life. First she was taken from Bo and Billie, her natural parents, and then her adopted parents got killed in a car crash.
Stephanie: You've had loss. I've had loss. We don't act like her.
Max: Yeah, but different people deal in different ways. I had mom and pop. You had your mom. We had good influences. Chelsea -- I'm not so sure about. I think Chelsea doesn't let herself get close to anyone because she's afraid she's gonna lose them, too.
Stephanie: Maybe you're right, but that's still no excuse.
Max: Inside, I think Chelsea's just a scared, insecure little girl.
Stephanie: If you say so, but she doesn't seem very insecure when she's throwing herself at every guy in sight. And why is she doing that when she's supposed to be seeing only you?
Max: I don't know. Maybe it's a defense mechanism, a way to protect herself or something.
Stephanie: Protect herself from what?
Max: Maybe you.
Stephanie: From me? What did I ever do to her?
Max: You pointed it out the other day. Back at the garage, remember? You said she was jealous of you. And I don't know. I really think that you're right.
Chelsea: Abby, let go.
Abby: Fine, but don't do this, Chelsea. It's wrong.
Chelsea: Abby, her locker's open. Her backpack was open. I'm just gonna peek inside and see if I can find anything out. It's not that big of a deal, and she's never gonna know about it.
Abby: I can't believe you're doing this.
Chelsea: This is thrilling. "Wuthering Heights." Are you kidding me? Oh, she bought it about a month ago. Pretty slow reader.
Abby: You know, I don't get you, Chelsea. Max asked you to be his girlfriend. He has stood by you through so much, and ever since he's been in Salem, you're the only girl that he's ever liked.
Chelsea: Abby, he's a man. He's got Stephanie's beautiful face in front of his all the time, they have all this stuff in common together, and she's nice to him --
Abby: Why don't you try being nice to him?
Chelsea: I am nice to him. You're my friend. Aren't I nice to him?
Chelsea: Whatever. It's just what makes me more interesting, I guess. And besides which, you're the person who's always saying I have nothing to worry about with Stephanie, and then on the other hand, I have you saying that I'm gonna lose Max. So which is it, huh?
Abby: Stephanie is a nonissue, okay? You're gonna make her an issue if you keep on playing these stupid games.
Chelsea: What games?
Abby: You flirting with other guys! What you're doing right now!
Chelsea: [Chuckles] Jackpot.
Chelsea: Look at that. And you're accusing me of being juvenile? Now tell me that she's not after my boyfriend.
Steve: Kayla, I don't want to hurt you. You got to be realistic.
Kayla: Just because you're willing to give up doesn't mean that I am.
Steve: I'm not giving up. I don't know how to fight for something I don't remember.
Kayla: I thought that's why we came to Cincinnati -- so you could find something to help you remember your past.
Steve: Yeah, that was the idea, but the only thing this trip accomplished was it made me realize where I belong. That's here. My life is in Cincinnati, just the way your life is in L.A.
Kayla: No, my life is with you, wherever you are. You're the only man I have ever loved.
Steve: I thought you told me once there was another man.
Kayla: No, what I said was, when I lost you, I lost everything and that our child was the only thing that kept me from giving up, and because of Stephanie, I felt that I had to create some kind of life, some sort of family. So, yes, I got involved with another man, but it didn't stand a chance because I knew in my heart I would never love anybody the way I love you. And it didn't take long for him to figure that out, too. So, that was the last time I took a chance on love, and I've been living like this ever since. I loved you then, and I love you now. And if you walk out of my life tonight, I will love you for the rest of my life, and that's just the way it is.
Steve: Listen...you deserve to have that kind of love in return...but I'm sorry. I don't think it can come from me.
Sami: How can I tell Austin what I have done? He gave me this beautiful ring. He proposed to me again.
E.J.: It's the right thing to do. You have to find the courage to do this.
Sami: [Sighs] I can’t. Oh, "how I ruined the best night of my life and turned it into the worst night of my life," by Samantha Brady, in booksellers everywhere.
E.J.: What you did, you did out of love. Austin will see that.
Sami: Is that what you think? Is that why you've been saying that you think Austin will understand?
Lexie: I'm free to tell Carrie the truth about how you blackmailed me, how you forced me into telling her that any child she and Austin had would have severe birth defects, and so now she is marrying a man that she doesn't really love, Sami!
Sami: Oh, that part is not my fault.
Lexie: And Austin believes in you. Well, that won't last once he finds out the truth.
Sami: I'm a monster. Who am I kidding? Austin is never gonna forgive me. He is never going to find a way to understand this.
Austin: Why didn't you say anything up on the roof? Why did you let me go on and on about you expecting a baby?
Carrie: I didn't want to ruin your special evening with Sami.
Austin: It's okay. Everything is gonna be okay.
Carrie: I wasn't even pregnant. God. The pregnancy test I took -- false positive. Can you believe it? How could I have been so stupid?
Austin: It's not your fault. I mean, Carrie, things like this do happen.
Carrie: I should have known. It's my body. I should have made sure. I just wanted it so badly. And Lexie told me that I can never have children.
Austin: I'm really sorry. Wow. I know how badly you wanted to have a family.
Carrie: Well, just one more dream that's not gonna come true, and I have to suck it up, stop feeling sorry for myself.
Austin: Well, hey, you're entitled to be sad. I think anybody would feel disappointed. You and Lucas -- you guys are talking about adopting, right?
Carrie: Yeah, but that's not what's bothering me.
Austin: Tell me.
Carrie: I just need to figure out a way to clean up the mess that I've made.
Austin: What are you talking about?
Carrie: You were right all along, Austin. I only got married because I thought I was pregnant. It's time that I was honest with myself. This marriage was a huge mistake.
Stephanie: We decided Chelsea had no reason to be jealous of me.
Max: Even Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley have a reason to be jealous of you, okay?
Stephanie: [Laughs] Please.
Max: Look, we both know that we're friends. I told you. Chelsea's insecure. It's driving her crazy that you're in town and in my life.
Stephanie: You know, if it would be better for you if we weren't friends --
Max: No, what kind of friend would I be if I said, "sure"? No way.
Stephanie: Just checking.
Max: It was very sweet of you to ask, though.
Stephanie: That's me. Sweet.
Max: I really think you are.
Stephanie: Thanks, Max. I'm think you are, too.
Max: Somehow, I don't know if that's a compliment.
Stephanie: Why? Because you're a guy? You don't have to be a tough jock all the time.
Max: Are you trying to psych out the competition here?
Stephanie: Maybe you are, too. Anyway, what are we gonna do about Chelsea?
Max: Nothing. She's not thinking about me when she's making decisions about how to live her life, so I'm sure as hell not giving her the power to do that, either, for me, not now or maybe not ever. I don't know. You want a refill?
Stephanie: No, I'm fine.
Max: So, tell me about you. I mean, how are you doing, being back in Salem and all?
Stephanie: Meeting you has helped.
Max: I'm glad.
Stephanie: [Chuckles] But no complaints otherwise. I mean, I'm getting in a groove here, and my dad's alive and back in my life. That's a major change.
Max: Yeah, I'll say.
Stephanie: You know, I always dreamed of them getting back together, especially when I was a little girl, and now there's a real possibility it could happen. What? You don't think it could happen?
Max: I don't know. A lot of time has passed, and people change.
Stephanie: Yeah, but my mom still loves my dad, and if he can get his memory back... I mean, it's not like they fell out of love and got divorced.
Max: You really believe in fairy tales and happy endings, don't you?
Stephanie: You must, too, or you would have given up on Chelsea a long, long time ago.
Max: Touché. Maybe you're right. So, what do you say we get out of here? Let's go back to the garage. We could work on my late, lamented car. That is, if I'm not taking advantage of your help.
Stephanie: Not at all. Let's go.
Max: All right.
Abby: So Stephanie doodles. Who doesn't? That doesn't prove anything.
Chelsea: Sometimes you can be so dense. First, a girl doesn't write a guy's name on a piece of paper unless she has him on her mind. Second, she's got little hearts all around his name. You don't think that, that means anything? [Chuckles]
Abby: Chelsea, what are you doing?
Chelsea: Look at how cheap this is. It's trashy, just like her.
Abby: Chelsea, whatever you're doing, stop!
Steve: I want you and Stephanie to get on with your lives and stop worrying about me.
Kayla: Can't do that.
Steve: Yes, you can. You've wasted too much of your life on me. It's time for it to end. Look, I'm sorry. It's not like I'm gonna drop out of sight. I'm not gonna lose touch, but you have got to stop banging your head against the wall, trying to make me remember the person that you remember. I'm never gonna be that guy again.
Kayla: I don't care. I don't care.
Steve: Kayla, you were doing great before I blew back into your life.
Kayla: I was not doing great.
Steve: You were doing good work. You should go to Africa like you planned, huh? And you should let Stephanie get on with her career. I know you don't like what she's doing, but you got to let her be herself.
Kayla: Would you listen to yourself? You're talking like a parent. You're talking like my husband.
Steve: Jeez. I mean, you just don't give up, do you?
Kayla: No, and neither do you.
Steve: I know you don't like my life, but you're asking me to give that up, too, you know.
Kayla: What, Della?
Steve: Not Della. Everything. You're asking me to choose between what's comfortable and familiar and a blank slate. Now, what would you choose?
Kayla: So, you want me to go?
Steve: It's what I need.
Kayla: There's nothing I can do to change your mind?
Steve: That's the way it has to be.
Abby: Chelsea, what is wrong with you? Go wipe that off before Max sees it.
Chelsea: I don't think so.
Abby: Then I'll do it.
Chelsea: No, you won’t. I want them to see it. Come on. Let's go.
Stephanie: I'm gonna change.
Max: Yeah, me too. What the hell?
Stephanie: Oh, my God.
Max: Who would do something like this, huh?
Stephanie: You have to ask?
Max: No. Chelsea? Stephanie, I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Abby: How could you do this, Chelsea? Please, just go in there and wipe the lipstick off before Max and Stephanie see it. What do you think they're gonna do when they read it? Do you honestly think that this is gonna change the way Max feels about Stephanie? It's gonna change the way he feels about you. They're gonna know it's you. It was immature. It was --
Chelsea: Stupid. It was stupid.
Chelsea: It was dumb. You're right. I mean, I don't know why I did it. Look, you've been a really good friend to me. Thank you. Let's go wipe it off.
E.J.: You know... I think we've all done things we're not very proud of.
Sami: [Sniffles] Not this bad. And I did it out of greed and spite and selfishness and because I didn't want to be alone.
E.J.: Shh. Come here. Come here. You are being far too hard on yourself.
Sami: You don't even know what I did.
E.J.: I know it wasn't that bad.
Sami: It was that bad. And when I tell you, you'll realize that Austin will never be able to forgive me for what I have done. And now that I think about it, you're not gonna want to have anything to do with me, either.
Austin: I don't understand. We talked about this a lot. You were so sure that you wanted to marry Lucas.
Carrie: Because I was pregnant.
Austin: No. No. You agreed to marry him before you knew you were pregnant.
Carrie: But would I have gone through with it if I knew that I couldn't have children? I don't know.
Austin: What are you saying?
Carrie: I told you. I made a mistake.
Austin: I knew you were having second thoughts.
Carrie: I was.
Austin: Okay, you don't have to answer me. Are you telling me that you wish you'd married me instead of Lucas?
Carrie: There's no point getting into it, Austin. I'm married to Lucas. You're engaged to my sister. Nothing is going to change that. What's that?
Lucas: Hey! Hey, what are you doing?
Kayla: So I guess this is it.
Steve: I guess so. You know, even though I don't remember any of you, it was nice to know I had some people who loved me.
Kayla: Still do.
Steve: Kayla, you know, I wish I could be the Steve Johnson you remember, but I can’t. I'm different now.
Kayla: Not to me. If you would just come back to Salem, I know it could be different.
Steve: No, stop it. Stop. You have to stop. Please, just try to understand.
Kayla: I have tried. And I will never understand. Never.
Kayla: [Sniffles] [Sobbing]
Carrie: Hurting someone as wonderful as Lucas, I can't do it.
Stephanie: Don't apologize for Chelsea.
Chelsea: I owe you both an apology.
Sami: This is exactly why I hate telling the truth -- because now you hate me, too, just like I knew you would.
