[Claire crying in distance]
Mimi: Sounds like Claire's having a bad night.
Shawn D.: Yeah, I'm sure she can't sleep, either.
Mimi: It seems like every time the temperature hits 90, the air conditioning goes off.
Shawn D.: I can't stand it.
Mimi: Well, maybe we should bring the fan in from the bedroom.
Shawn D.: No, no. I'm talking about the baby crying. Philip is over at the V.A. Hospital getting his prosthesis fixed because of the accident. I don't know. I'm gonna go over there and see if Belle needs any help. [Dialing]
Mimi: Hi, it's me. I didn't wake you, did I? You said any time. I really need you.
Belle: Oh, Shawn.
Shawn D.: We heard the baby.
Belle: Oh, gosh. Come in. She didn't wake you, did she?
Shawn D.: No, no, it's fine. Who could sleep in this heat anyway?
Belle: I know. Definitely not Claire. I think maybe she just needs her father.
Shawn D.: What about her Godfather, huh?
Shawn D.: Oh, it's all right, baby girl. You want to come to your Godfather? Come here. Come here. It's okay. It's okay( do you miss your daddy? Do you miss your daddy? Hey, hey, it's okay. Just because he's not here doesn't mean he doesn't love you. You all right? There you go. You're all settled down now. Ready to go to sleep? I know it's hot. I know it's hot. Come here.
[Smooches] Come here. There you go.
Shawn D.: [Chuckles] All right. Close your eyes. Go to sleep. Be a good girl. Listen to your Godfather. All right.
Belle: [Laughs] You are amazing with her.
Shawn D.: No, I just got lucky. J.T. used to do the same thing. I just happened to put her down at the right time. She would have gone down for you.
Belle: Yeah, I'm not so sure. Sometimes I feel like the worst mother in the world.
Shawn D.: Stop.
Belle: What's gonna happen when this baby's crying in the middle of the night?
Shawn D.: Philip will be there.
Belle: Philip's not the baby's father.
Shawn D.: Yeah, well, he will be.
Belle: Philip doesn't even want this baby. He wanted me to have an abortion because he couldn't stand the thought of me being pregnant with your baby. It's not right. You and I should be able to raise our baby together.
[Monitors beeping steadily]
Jack: Hell, Lexie. At least we got the diagnosis right. Hey, we all got to go sometime.
Lexie: Jack, I am so sorry.
Jack: Well, Jack, old boy, it's déjà vu all over again. I guess you've said your goodbyes. Time to check out the adventure on this side. [Door opens]
Abby: [Voice breaking] You can't die, Daddy. You can’t.
Jennifer: I feel like I need to be in there with Abby.
Lexie: Let her say a private good-bye.
Jennifer: It's really over, isn't it, Lex?
Lexie: I'm so sorry.
Jennifer: Is Jack in any pain at all?
Lexie: No, we're doing everything we can to keep him comfortable. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Jennifer: Oh, gosh. I don't understand this. I don't understand how God -- how God could bring him home and give us hope again only to take him away again.
Frankie: Maybe so you could all say goodbye. I know this is really difficult, but I think that, in the long run, it's gonna mean a lot to all of you.
Jennifer: Oh, gosh, I can't even handle this.
Frankie: Yes, you can.
Jennifer: No, I can’t.
Frankie: Come with me.
Frankie: Trust me. Come on.
Lucas: So let's open it, find out who brought it, and who was lurking outside your apartment.
Austin: I'll open it.
Sami: No, you can't do that.
Lucas: Why not?
Sami: Because it's addressed to me.
Lucas: Well, fine, little miss know-it-all. What does it say?
Sami: I can't tell you.
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives.
Austin: Sami, why can't you read it to us?
Lucas: Yeah, this affects us all, Sami.
Sami: You're right. It does.
Carrie: What is going on?
Sami: I've been planning a surprise -- actually all day. Austin knows about it. [Clears throat]
Sami: What? I guess the truth is out, E.J. I've got this plan -- the surprise that I've been working on -- and then Austin caught me off guard with this beautiful dinner that you planned on the rooftop, and that's when he gave me my engagement ring. So, um, well, I guess the truth is out now. You know that I'm working on this big thing for Austin, and I'd be happy to include you both after everything you've been through the last couple days -- the fire and the bad news that you got at the hospital.
Lucas: That's what this is about? That's why someone dropped off the letter and ran?
Sami: Yeah, I had strict instructions that they weren't supposed to be seen dropping anything off 'cause I didn't want Austin to know about the surprise.
Lucas: What surprise are you talking about?
Sami: Obviously, I can't tell you, Lucas, or it wouldn't be a surprise.
E.J.: Maybe you should, Samantha.
Sami: No [Clears throat] E.J. E.J. has been helping me get everything all organized, but he promised to keep my secret.
E.J.: Yes, I did. All we can tell you is that, obviously, the letter was part of it and Sami's been working on this for quite a while. It's really gonna be a great surprise when it comes out.
Sami: But that's all we're gonna say about it tonight. No more.
Austin: Well, I can't wait to find out what it is.
Sami: [Chuckles] Great. Well, I never poured the wine.
Lucas: Why don't I help you with that, Sami?
Sami: Lucas, it's all right. I've got it.
Lucas: No, really, I insist. I've got my eye on you.
Sami: You like the view?
Lucas: I've been listening to you, too. Nobody in this room knows you better than I do, so why don't you tell me what's really going on?
Jennifer: [Exhales deeply] He's really dying, Frankie.
Frankie: You need to prepare yourself for that.
Jennifer: I know that. I know, and that's what I told Abby, and I meant it, but --
Frankie: But telling her and doing it yourself is not the same thing. I think I might have something that will help. It's for you, from Jack. Open it.
Abby: [Voice breaking] You know what, Dad? You can't leave me. It's not that I don't love mom. I do. It's just you know I can't talk to her like I talk to you. I need you so much...and mom does, too, and Jack Jr. You know, you should be the one giving him memories and teaching him how to make Deveraux burgers, not me. You can't die, Dad, not now. I can't do this without you. I've already tried, and I can’t. I can’t. You know, you have fought so hard to come back to us over and over again, and you may think that you don't have a choice, but I know that you can come back, Dad. You can beat anything that's bad because you are strong and you love us and we love you so much. [Sniffles]
Jack: I-I do love you that much. So what am I gonna do now, break your heart? How can I just leave my family?
Mimi: Patrick, thank you for coming.
Patrick: Sure, I told you, 24-7, sis. What's up?
Mimi: I need a shoulder.
Patrick: Why? What's wrong?
Mimi: Claire was crying. We heard her through the vent, and, just like every other time that's happened, Shawn ran across the hall to see if he could help calm her down.
Patrick: It's like something inside of him knows she's his daughter.
Mimi: I know.
Patrick: So, did you tell him?
Mimi: I can’t.
Patrick: Mimi, you got to stop lying to him.
Mimi: I'm not lying. I'm just not telling the truth.
Patrick: Well, guess what? That sounds a little like mom's logic there.
Mimi: I'm not being like mom, Patrick! If Shawn found out the truth, he will leave me for Belle in a second. I don't know what to do.
Patrick: Look, you've got to stop doing this to yourself and to Shawn. You've got to tell him the truth tonight.
Belle: Look, you said you value honesty, and I am just trying to be honest because that's the only way I know how to deal with this. But you're not, are you?
Shawn D.: What do you mean?
Belle: Why did you come here tonight?
Shawn D.: Because Mimi and I heard the baby was crying, and I thought I could help.
Belle: You do that a lot.
Shawn D.: Yeah, 'cause I'm her Godfather.
Belle: It's more than that.
Shawn D.: Yes, you are correct. It is more than that. When Zack died, he became a part of her, and I feel that bond every time I hold her.
Belle: I understand that, but you felt a bond with Claire before the transplant. And I've been thinking a lot about that. I think I know why you feel so close to her.
Belle: You've felt so close to Claire because she's my daughter and because of how you still feel about me, and this new baby -- it's gonna bring us even closer.
Shawn D.: Well, we can't let it.
Belle: Well, how are we gonna stop it? You know, I was hurting so badly when I thought that you ran off with Jan Spears, but I was still in love with you when I married Philip. You said you were still in love with me when you married Mimi.
Shawn D.: Please, just don't tell me that. Don't tell me that your vows were not sacred. You and Philip have a child.
Belle: I know that, and she's the reason that we've stayed together this long, but once you and I have our own baby, everything's gonna change.
Jennifer: Where did you get this?
Frankie: From Jack. He told me to hold on to it and give it to you when.... it was his final request.
Jack: My dearest Jennifer. If you're reading this, then you know I've filed my last story, met my last deadline. Sorry. You know, I never could pass up a good pun. I always wanted to be a great journalist -- to leave my mark on the world like Woodward and Bernstein or Bill Moyers or Edward R. Murrow, but I was never in their league.
Jennifer: Oh, yes, you were, Jack. You are. [Sniffles]
Jack: Anyway, I made my peace with that because I realized there are other ways to leave a lasting impact on the world and mine is through the love that I shared, through the beautiful family that we created. Fact is...and I'm all about the facts...
Jack: ...You made me a better man, a better journalist, a better husband and a father, and you and our children will live on in my spirit as I will live on in yours...forever, until the day we're reunited.
Abby: Daddy, you can't leave, okay? You promised to be at my wedding, to walk me down the aisle, to dance with me. Don't you remember?
Jack: I do remember.
Abby: Look, I may not know who I'm gonna marry yet or when, but you always said a promise was a promise.
Jack: I did. I did!
Abby: And you can't change that now. It's not fair.
Jack: Fair. [Chuckles] I thought the fair was where you go to see the pigs. No, you're right. It's not. It's not fair. Oh, my God. God! Are you listening to this? Look, I got to do something to stop this. But I'm still alive. I am still alive, aren't I? Look, I'll do anything, within reason. Just don't take me yet. My family needs me.
Sami: Why are you always so suspicious of me? God, it's not like I'm hiding anything. I don't have any secrets. I'm just upset. I'm upset for Carrie and everything that she's going through.
Lucas: You're doing all this because of Carrie? That's why you're upset? Will you just give me this?
Sami: I care about her, all right? And I care about you, and I want you both to be happy. I love her. She's my sister. And I love you. You're like a brother-in-law to me.
Lucas: Well, I'm sorry, then. I'm sorry about being suspicious.
Sami: You've said that before.
Lucas: Yeah, I have, haven't I? Look, I want you to know that I never meant to hurt you, okay? I didn't, and if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be alive, so I owe you a lot.
Sami: You would have done the same for me. Wouldn't you?
Lucas: I don't know. I might have to think about that one.
Lucas: Of course I'd do the same for you. You know that. Don't be silly. Will you handle these drinks for me, though? I want to check out the hallway and see if there's anything going on in the lobby.
Sami: I told you. I know who wrote the note.
Lucas: Yeah, I really don't think it's the person who was running away from me.
Lucas: Don't hassle me, all right? Humor me. Please.
Sami: Lucas, it's okay. You're so paranoid.
E.J.: You are on borrowed time, sweetheart. Whoever is writing these notes wants to make sure that everybody here finds out exactly what it was that you did to keep Austin and Carrie apart.
Sami: The note was addressed to me, not to them.
E.J.: Yeah, but it was delivered in a way that was meant to ensure that everybody here found out about it.
Sami: Yeah, well, I handled it.
E.J.: Barely. And now you're gonna have to throw some big surprise party for everybody.
Sami: I will.
E.J.: Uh-huh. And what are you gonna do next time?
Austin: Look, we need to talk.
Carrie: About what?
Austin: The fact that you're not pregnant.
Carrie: That has nothing to do with us.
Austin: No, no, no. It changes everything.
Carrie: Lucas and I are still married.
Austin: You never would have if you thought you weren't pregnant.
Carrie: I told you. It doesn't matter now.
Austin: That is the only reason why I stopped fighting for you, and I think it's the only reason why you stopped fighting for what you really want.
Carrie: Austin, we cannot go back.
Austin: You're the one that brought this up. Look, we're not done with this conversation, Carrie. Please, you've got to be honest with me. Tell me the truth. Look, you never would have married Lucas if you knew you weren't pregnant.
Frankie: You okay?
Jennifer: Yeah. There's, uh, a second page here that Jack wrote to you. Would you like me to read it to you?
Jennifer: Uh, "Frankie, I'm putting this in writing so it's official. You're the best friend anyone could ever ask for. I've been able to make peace with my mortality because I know Jennifer won't be alone, that she'll have someone who loves her and who she loves, someone who will be a good and understanding husband to her and a loving, supportive stepfather to Abigail and Jack Jr. It's been an amazing journey for us, but now we've come to a fork in the road, and this is where I leave you behind, for now. But always know I wish you every happiness." [Sniffles]
Abby: Please, God. You know, I was starting to think that my dad had nine lives. You've brought him back to us so many times, when everybody said that it was impossible and that we were crazy for having hope. And you know what? It's been incredibly hard, but I had faith. And I still have faith, and I believe that you can save him.
Jack: That's my girl. That's my girl.
Jennifer: I want to thank you for the time that we had with Jack. And we know that he is watching over us now and forever. Amen.
Jennifer: I know, honey. I wish daddy were here with us, too.
Abby: Mom, he is here.
Jennifer: Oh, sweetheart. Please, you need to just -- you need to lie down now, and you need to get some rest, okay?
Jack: Not before she's had her cake.
Jennifer: Jack? Oh, my God. It can't be.
Jack: It's me. It's me.
Jennifer: Oh, my God.
Jennifer: [Gasps] Jack?
Jennifer: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. It is you. You came back to me. You're alive.
Jack: Yeah. Sorry I'm a little late, but I made it with a little help from my friends.
Jennifer: Oh! Oh, I can't believe they found you.
Jack: I can't believe you made it yourself.
Jennifer: It feels so good to hold you, Jack. I thought I lost you forever.
Jack: All right. Just don't look down.
Jennifer: I'm not looking down.
Jack: I'm talking to myself.
Jack: Okay. We're almost there. We're almost there. Honey. Honey, I'll carry you. We're almost there. We're almost there.
Jack: [Panting] Oh, oh! [Sobbing]
Jennifer: Oh, Jack. You did it. Oh, my gosh. You saved us.
Jack: You're safe. My baby's safe.
Jennifer: Thank God you're alive. You came back to me. I can't believe it. I can't believe it.
Jack: I'm alive. I'm here. Nothing and nobody's ever gonna take me away from you again.
Jack: Nothing on this earth will ever take me from you again. Abigail's right. I haven't used up my nine lives yet. Oh! [Monitor beeping rapidly] No!
Shawn D.: Of course this is gonna change everything. It's gonna bond us together for life, but it does not change the fact that I am married to Mimi and you are married to Philip, and, together, the two of you have a child. You're a family.
Belle: I know that. I just --
Shawn D.: Hi.
Mimi: Uh, yeah, Patrick just stopped by to say hello, and we were talking, and then I suddenly realized that Claire had stopped crying, so I decided to see what was keeping my husband.
Shawn D.: Yeah, I was actually gonna get this fan set up for her so it would get the air circulating in here. It's really hot.
Patrick: Do you need a hand?
Shawn D.: I do. Thanks. Appreciate that.
Mimi: Well, it's even hotter in here than at our place. No wonder Claire was fussy.
Belle: Yeah. Oh.
Mimi: Are you all right?
Belle: Oh, my God.
Mimi: Belle, what is it?
Belle: It's the baby. There's something wrong.
Shawn D.: Belle, are you okay?
Carrie: I told you -- it doesn't matter now. I did go through with the wedding. I am Mrs. Lucas Roberts.
Austin: But you could be Mrs. Austin Reed.
Carrie: You're engaged to Sami. You gave her a beautiful ring tonight.
Austin: Engagements can be broken.
Carrie: She's my sister, Austin. I don't want you breaking her heart.
Austin: What about your heart?
Carrie: Things happen for a reason. This is obviously the way things were meant to be -- me with Lucas, you with Sami.
Austin: I don't believe that, and neither do you.
E.J.: "Sami Brady, you are a blackmailing bitch. You forced Lexie Carver to tell your sister that if she tried to have a baby with Austin, it would be born with severe birth defects. That was a lie, and if Carrie knew the truth, she would be with Austin, and your sister, your fiancé, and your former fiancé would never speak to you again." Wow.
Sami: Not exactly a hallmark card, huh?
E.J.: I told you, Samantha. Whoever wrote this is serious. They mean business.
Lucas: Sami, I did it. I figured it out.
[Monitors beeping rapidly]
Jack: This can't be happening. Not now.
Jack: You machines can't let me die. You got to keep me alive! [Beeping continues] Well, if you won't, then I will.
Abby: Look, Daddy, you've got to hang in there, okay?
Jack: I'm gonna give it my best shot, Abigail. I'm not going down -- and I do mean down -- without a fight.
Abby: Daddy, please. Can you hear me? [Beeping intensifies] That was a sign. You're gonna be all right. You're coming back to us. I can't wait to tell mom. Daddy, no, please! What is it? What's happening?
Nurse: We're losing him. Code blue! I need a crash cart.
Sami: What did you figure out?
Lucas: I don't think the guy I saw was the guy who dropped off that note..
E.J.: Why not?
Lucas: I don't know. There was a window open. There was a window open outside in the hallway. It was right by the fire escape, so anyone could have jumped through that, rob any apartment they wanted.
Sami: Oh, you think someone was trying to rob the apartments?
Lucas: Well, yeah, it makes more sense than what you came up with. Someone was dropping off information because of a surprise or something like that? Why would they care? Even if they knew me, why would they care? They could have just dropped it off and not told me anything about it.
Sami: You're right. I guess you're right about that.
Lucas: Yeah, but don't worry about it. I shut the window, so we're not gonna have that problem anymore.
Sami: Thank you.
Carrie: Excuse me. I'm sorry. It's been a long day.
Lucas: It definitely has.
Carrie: I'm gonna take a bath and go to bed.
Sami: You want me to pour you some wine for your bath?
Carrie: No. I'll definitely take a rain check, though. Thanks, Sami, for everything.
Lucas: Hey, uh, don't take too long in that bathtub, all right? I want to get you to bed soon.
Carrie: Okay, I won’t.
Sami: So, Austin, are you ready to go to bed?
Austin: No, I have to go upstairs to the roof and finish cleaning up from dinner.
Sami: I'll help you.
Austin: No, no, no. The dinner was for you. I don't want you cleaning up.. Just stay down here and relax and I'll see you in a little bit, okay?
Sami: Well, yeah, but thank you so much for planning such an amazing dinner and for my beautiful ring. Austin, you have made me the happiest woman in the whole world.
Austin: All right. See you, E.J.
E.J.: Take care. It is a beautiful ring. He loves you very much.
E.J.: That is why you have to be the one to tell him the truth before he finds out from whoever is writing these notes.
Shawn D.: What is it?
Belle: I don't think I should be having cramps like this.
Shawn D.: I'm taking you to the hospital.
Belle: No, I'm just stressed out and I'm hot and I've got a stomachache. I just need a few minutes.
Shawn D.: I'm not taking any chances with our child.
Belle: Well, you need a shirt. There's one of Philip's on the chair.
Shawn D.: All right. You ready to go? Let's go.
Belle: Wait, no. What about Claire? I don't want to wake her up.
Shawn D.: Um, Mimi, do you think that you could take care of her?
Mimi: Yeah, but --
Shawn D.: I will call you as soon as I know what's going on.
Belle: Oh, my God. They're getting worse.
Shawn D.: Can you walk?
Belle: I don't know.
Patrick: You guys need a hand, or what?
Shawn D.: No, I got her. You okay?
Nurse: You've got to clear the room.
Abby: But --
Jennifer: Abby, I heard the alarms. What's happening? What's going on?
Abby: Mom, it's dad. I was talking to him. I thought he was getting better, but he's dying, Mom.
Jennifer: No, baby, he's not.
Abby: Lexie, you've got to save him.
Lexie: I'll do everything I can, but --
Jennifer: I know, Lexie, just go. Oh, God. Oh, Frankie.
Frankie: It's gonna be all right.
Jennifer: It's okay. It's okay.
Shawn D.: Excuse me, can I get a doctor, please?
Nurse: What's wrong?
Shawn D.: She's having very bad cramps right now. We're not sure what's wrong.
Nurse: I'll get Dr. Roberts.
Shawn D.: It's gonna be fine.
Belle: No, it's not. It's too late, Shawn. I'm losing the baby.
Mimi: Shh, Claire, Claire, you're such a sweet girl. There you go. I can't believe you're the reason I'm in this mess. No, I am the reason I am in this mess.
Patrick: Hey, I got the fan set up. It should help a little bit.
Mimi: Yeah, very little.
Patrick: Do you want me to stick around?
Mimi: No, go home to your air conditioning.
Patrick: Are you sure? I don't mind hanging out until they get back. Look, it's really nice of you to say you'd sit for Claire. I know it's hard.
Mimi: I love Claire. I love Belle. But Shawn's my husband. I love him with my whole heart. I never should have lied to him.
Patrick: Yeah. So what are you gonna do?
Mimi: I wish I knew.
Jennifer: Sweetie, listen to mommy. No matter what happens, your dad loves us. You know that, okay? We got a chance to say goodbye, and we promised him that we would be strong.
Abby: I don't want to be strong. I want him to be alive.
Jennifer: I know that, and so do I, but we can't always have what we want.
Abby: But I prayed.
Jennifer: Even when we pray, baby. Lexie, what? Lexie.
Lexie: It's a miracle. His fever broke. The experimental drug may be working after all.
Abby: Thank you, God.
Jennifer: Lexie, really?
Lexie: Yeah, I mean, he's not out of the woods yet, but I am cautiously optimistic that Jack's gonna pull through this.
Jennifer: Can we see him?
Lexie: Yes, yes, absolutely. Oh, Frankie. I don't know what to say.
Frankie: You don't have to say anything. This is how it's meant to be. "The best friend anyone could ever want." [Chuckles] Way to go, Jack. [Monitor beeping steadily]
Sami: Good night, E.J. Thank you again for everything.
E.J.: You cannot keep putting off telling Austin the truth.
Sami: I know. I know, okay? I just can't tell him tonight.
E.J.: I'm serious, Sami.
Sami: I'm gonna sleep on it, and maybe I'll come up with something to do tomorrow.
E.J.: You already know what to do. Call me in the morning.
Sami: [Sighs] Oh, God.
Lucas: [Clears throat] Excuse me. Come on, honey. We got to get to bed soon, okay?
Carrie: I will.
Austin: You came.
Carrie: It sounded like you wanted me to.
Austin: I did.
Sami: You know, I haven't thought about that in a long time, but --
Lucas: It seems like it was yesterday, doesn't it?
Austin: You're keeping something from me, and I want you to tell me what it is.
Mimi: Oh, my God. I don't believe this.
Bonnie: Good Lord almighty. [Chuckles]
Belle: We have never stopped loving each other -- not really. And even if we wanted to try to stop it, we couldn't, and that's just the way it is.
