Bo: Fancy Face, look at you. You're exhausted. Why don't you let me take you home? The doctor said that Belle and the baby are gonna be fine.
Hope: I'm fine. I don't want to go, not until I see Belle with my own eyes.
Bo: You don't believe the doctor?
Hope: I do believe him. Bo, this is our son's baby, our granddaughter Claire's little brother or sister, and Belle.
Bo: Belle is the mommy and Philip's wife.
Hope: And the person that we always thought of as our daughter-in-law. I'm sorry. I know. I still can't help feeling that way about her, especially now.
Bo: I know what you mean.
Hope: But don't get me wrong. I love Mimi, and I know Shawn loves her. But Belle... I’ll never get over the feeling that she was his... true love. And now, God willing, they're gonna have two children together.
Hope: Things have a strange way of working out, don't they?
Bo: That they do. Come on, you're tired. Let me take you home.
Bo: All right. If you won't let me take you home, just close your eyes. Get some rest. Put your head right here. Come on. Hope, if you're not gonna do it for me, do it for the baby -- your baby. Come on. That's my girl. Right here. [Sighs]
Philip: So your sure your feeling okay? I mean, no more cramps at all?
Belle: None at all. Dr. Ross said she just wants to keep monitoring the baby's heart rate and my blood pressure. And if it's all good, we can go home.
Philip: You still have to take it easy, though. I'm gonna make sure you do. No more scenes, no more stress, no more bailing me out of jail.
Philip: No, I mean it. Health is the most important thing now -- your health, the baby's health, okay?
Belle: Thank you.
Philip: Thank you for what?
Belle: For being so supportive, even though --
Philip: Even though the baby's not mine? The baby's part of you, and I love you.
Belle: I know that. I just feel like I'm asking a lot of you, you know, first with the embryo switch, and now finding out about Claire.
Philip: I probably could have done a better job handling that.
Belle: That makes two of us.
Philip: This baby and Claire is not your fault. I know that. It's not even Shawn's fault. We have to figure out a way to get past this, to move on, and we will because the one thing that I will never do no matter what -- I will not abandon my family, okay? We have to put the pieces together. We can do it. We can move on. We can go back to the way that it was, okay? I need to hear you tell me that you believe that, too.
Belle: I can’t.
Mimi: I don't know how you can say everything's gonna be fine like this is no big deal. Shawn finding out about Claire was exactly what we never wanted to happen.
Bonnie: Well, it did. And, as it turns out, not such a big deal. He still loves you. He still wants to be with you -- you, not Belle. He told you that, didn't he? So relax. In fact, it's probably better it happened this way 'cause now you don't have to sweat him finding out anymore. See? It's all good.
Mimi: It's all good. Right, except for the fact that I've known Claire was his all this time. And if he ever found out --
Bonnie: Well, he won’t. You've managed to keep it a secret this long, haven't you? So if you just keep on keeping your mouth shut, you'll have nothing to worry about. You and your husband will live happily ever after, and no one will ever be the wiser.
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives.
Billie: Oh, hey. You're home. I thought you were going out.
Chelsea: Uh, no. Change of plans. I've been waiting for you.
Billie: I'll bet I know why. Can't leave home without this, right? You left it at the diner. Here you go.
Chelsea: I know. I went back for it.
Billie: I was gone already?
Chelsea: No, no, you were still there.
Billie: Well, then why didn't you say anything?
Chelsea: I guess because you’ve been a little busy.
Chelsea: Oh, yeah. I saw you kissing Steve Johnson.
Kate: Bo? What happened? What's going on?
Hope: I guess I was more tired than I thought.
Bo: Yeah. Thanks a lot, Kate.
Kate: Oh, well, sorry, but I just got a call from Philip, and he said that Belle was brought into the ER. Where is he? Is he with her?
Bo: Yeah, he is but Belle is fine. She did have some complication, but everything's under control, not to worry.
Kate: Great. I have to see them.
Bo: No, you don’t. Not just yet.
Kate: And why not just yet?
Bo: Because they need some time alone, and if you care at all about your son, you'll let him have it.
Belle: Philip, you have to know that things can never just go back to the way they were. So much has happened, and it's gonna change everything.
Philip: Well, you're right. A lot of things will change. And maybe our family won't be exactly the way that I -- that we expected, but the one thing that won't change is our commitment to each other and our love. Our love can get us through anything. It will. [Monitor beeping] What is that?
Belle: Oh, my God. It's the baby's heart monitor. Something's happening.
Philip: Nurse! What's wrong? Why is this thing beeping? What's up?
Nurse: The baby's heart rate's dropping.
Belle: Oh, my God!
Nurse: Try to stay calm, okay? I'll go page a doctor.
Philip: She's gonna get the doctor. It's fine. It's okay. It's all right.. It's okay.
Bonnie: [Sighs] Thank God the baby finally conked out. You ask me, all that crying and carrying on comes from too much coddling. Teething or not, in my day, we didn't spoil our kids.
Mimi: Well, that depends on your definition of "spoiling."
Bonnie: Anyway, she's down for the count, hopefully, and now you can get ready for your romantic dinner with Shawn, your loving and devoted husband.
Mimi: Yeah, I should go finish dinner. He should be home any minute.
Mimi: What's wrong?
Bonnie: Is it Belle or the baby? Did something happen?
Shawn D.: You knew? All this time, you knew?
Mimi: Knew what? What are you talking about?
Shawn D.: I'll give you a clue. It's not a good idea to leave a baby monitor around when you've got secrets you don't want overheard.
Bonnie: Shawn, wait. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Whatever you heard, whatever you think you heard, it's obviously a misunderstanding. You know how it is when you come in, in the middle of a conversation you take things out of context. You get the wrong idea. Meems, tell him it's not what he thinks. Fine, you want to know what we were really talking about, the big secret? A surprise romantic dinner --
Shawn D.: Stop, Bonnie! Stop lying to me! Look, I know what I heard.
Bonnie: It's not a lie!
Mimi: It is, Mother! It's a lie. I can't do this anymore.
Bonnie: No, Mimi.
Mimi: No, Mom, I can’t. Shawn, you're right. I have been keeping secrets from you. I did know that Claire was yours.
Shawn D.: How did you know? How did you know that Claire was my daughter?
Mimi: I overheard a couple nurses at the hospital talking when Claire was waiting for her liver transplant from Zack, and they said that your DNA matched Claire's, and Philip's didn’t. And then Mom did some checking, and she found out that it was true, that you were Claire's father, not Philip.
Shawn D.: I don't believe it. I don't believe that you knew all this time, and you never --
Mimi: I'm sorry, Shawn.
Shawn D.: You're sorry?! You're sorry? I have a daughter, a child, and you don't even tell me.
Mimi: Shawn, I wanted to tell you, and I tried. I tried a million times. And I know that doesn't make it right, but I have hated myself for not having the guts. If you only knew how much.
Shawn D.: So am I supposed to feel sorry for you?
Shawn D.: I loved you, Mimi. I trusted you. I trusted you with my life. You were the one person that I thought that I could always count on, who would never lie to me, who would never keep a secret.
Bonnie: Shawn, just stop. This isn't Mimi's fault. I'm the one who told her not to tell you about Claire. She wanted to. Believe me, she wanted to. But I told her she'd be crazy to, and I put the fear of God in her. So you want to be angry with someone, you be angry with me, not her.
Billie: We were just kissing. What's the big deal?
Chelsea: The big deal? Mom, it was disgusting. It was wrong.
Billie: Really? It was wrong?
Chelsea: Yeah. You guys were just doing it out there in the open, for anyone to see. Didn't even try to hide it.
Billie: Not that I have to explain this to you, but we were just kissing.. It's not like we were tearing each other's clothes off.
Chelsea: Ew. Honestly, I could have gone without hearing that.
Billie: Chelsea, grow up.
Chelsea: Why don't you just tell me what's really going on? Are you getting involved with him?
Billie: Steve and I are not involved.
Chelsea: Then what?
Billie: "Then what"? We've run into each other a few times. We happen to like each other. We've become friendly.
Chelsea: Are you sleeping with him, too?
Billie: Oh, Chelsea, not that, that isn’t any of your business, no, we haven't slept together.
Chelsea: Yet -- but you want to, and you're going to.
Billie: Okay, Chelsea, what is your problem?
Chelsea: My problem? What is your problem? Honestly, Mother, I thought you were done with married men, especially after what happened with dad. Excuse me for being concerned, but you're sitting here telling me to straighten out my life and do the right thing, but how am I supposed to know what that is when you say one thing and then do another?
Hope: Oh, excuse me, nurse, what's going on? Is there a problem?
Bo: Belle was doing better.
Nurse: It seems the baby's in some sort of distress again.
Hope: What kind of distress?
Nurse: You'll have to speak to the doctor.
Dr. Ross: Did anything happen just before the alarms went off? Did something upset you?
Belle: We were just talking.
Philip: I didn't upset you, did I?
Belle: No, I'm just stressed about everything.
Philip: She also found out her mom might be missing.
Dr. Ross: Stress definitely could have triggered these episodes.
Belle: So then there's nothing really wrong with the baby?
Dr. Ross: I wish I could tell you that's true, but until I can run some more tests...
Belle: So you think there's still a chance that I could miscarry?
Dr. Ross: What I'm saying is, the baby's heartbeat is erratic, which may potentially indicate a physiological problem. Whatever is wrong, I'm afraid it could be serious.
Hope: Poor Belle. She has been through so much these past few days. First finding out about Claire on top of everything else, then the news about her mother, it's no wonder she ended up in the hospital.
Kate: Wait a second. I heard about Marlena, but what about Claire? What did Belle find out?
Hope: I thought Philip would have told you.
Bo: You haven't heard, huh?
Kate: Told me what? Heard what?
Bo: You tell her.
Hope: Bo had Shawn take a DNA test to confirm that the report Chelsea put in his hospital room must have been doctored. Well, it turns out it wasn’t.
Kate: So what does that mean?
Bo: The test revealed Shawn's the father. Claire isn't Philip's daughter..
Kate: Oh, my God. Does Philip know?
Bo: Yeah, everyone knows. .. You don't seem too surprised by the news.
Kate: Believe me, I am very surprised. I am just in shock, okay? I'm in shock about it. I can't believe this. This can't be possible.
Hope: Actually, it is possible. They ran the test twice.
Kate: So what’s gonna happen now?
Bo: Everyone's gonna find a way to work through this.
Hope: Obviously, all of their lives have been turned upside down again.
Kate: Yeah, well, it's worse for Philip, believe me. I can't believe it. How did he ever take the news? It had to have been terrible.
Hope: He didn't take it very well.
Bo: That's putting it lightly.
Philip: Is my wife gonna be okay?
Belle: I just want to know about the baby.
Dr. Ross: I'm gonna admit you for some more extensive tests. I'll arrange for a room.
Belle: I'm scared. What if this baby has the same problem that Claire did?
Philip: No, no, no. Don't even think that. That wasn't anything hereditary. Let's just wait for the lab results, okay?
Belle: What if it's bad?
Philip: If there's a problem, we’ll fix it, I'll fix it. I'll use my dad's connections. I'll bring in specialists, the best in the world, okay? I'll do anything I have to, to protect you and protect this baby. That's a promise. It's gonna be okay, all right?
Chelsea: I can't believe that you are trying to steal my Aunt Kayla's husband. After all those lectures about doing the right thing and taking the moral high road and all that other crap that you apparently didn't even mean.
Billie: First of all, I am not trying to steal Kayla's husband. Second of all, they're not even really together anymore. And, third of all, it was just a kiss. We were talking. One thing led to another.
Chelsea: And you made a move on him.
Billie: I did not make -- he kissed me. It's not like it even really meant anything.
Chelsea: That's even better.
Chelsea: Don't you even feel the slightest bit guilty for what you're doing to Aunt Kayla?
Billie: Of course I do. I feel bad for her. She's a nice person, and she loves him. And she is desperate for things to work out but, unfortunately, it doesn't look like that's gonna happen.
Chelsea: But how do you know? I mean, maybe it would if you weren't in the picture.
Billie: Because Steve told me. After you left the diner, he told me that he is going to ask Kayla for a divorce. It's over between them but that has nothing to do with me.
Billie: He doesn't have any feelings for her anymore, not that he can remember, anyway.
Chelsea: Abby said that they were trying to work on that, that every day that they spent together, they were getting closer.
Billie: Steve is trying to work very hard on that. But the truth of the matter is he's just not the same person that Kayla fell in love with. And you just can't force a connection when there's nothing there.
Chelsea: I still think that if they gave it some more time and maybe a certain somebody wasn't distracting him, then they could have a chance.
Billie: Listen to me. If Steve and Kayla decide to work things out, I will not stand in the way.
Chelsea: So until then, you're just gonna keep seeing him? Because the bottom line is that no matter how many times you tell me to change and be a better person, you're never gonna practice what you preach.
Shawn D.: Believe me, Bonnie, I do blame you. I blame you for raising Mimi the way you did. What kind of a mother teaches her kids to lie, cheat, and manipulate?
Bonnie: A really bad one. I told you this is all my fault. You can't hold Mimi responsible.
Shawn D.: What?! Of course she is responsible. Look, she may have had a hard upbringing, but she's not 5 years old anymore. She is an adult who makes her own decisions, and she chose -- on her own -- not to tell me about Claire. She chose to keep lying to me every day.
Mimi: I can explain.
Shawn D.: What is there to explain? Are you gonna blame it on your mom, too?
Shawn D.: Go ahead. While you're at it, I'll take my share. I was there. I saw what you did to Rex, how your lies just destroyed him and everything that you had together. I thought you learned your lesson. I should have never. I should have known that you would never change.
Bonnie: Please, please. Mimi never knew the truth for sure, just like you didn't believe it when you first saw that file.
Shawn D.: Please.
Bonnie: You told her you never slept with Belle. Did you lie to her? Huh?
Shawn D.: Stay out of this Bonnie? This is between Mimi and me. I think we'd better have this conversation in private. Would you please stay with Claire?
Shawn D.: Let's go. I have a question. If you knew the truth about Claire since her transplant, that means that you have been lying to me since before we got married, which means that your wedding vows were all a lie, too.
Mimi: No! No, Shawn, I love you. I just made a terrible mistake.
Shawn D.: Yeah, so did I... the biggest mistake of my life.
Billie: Okay, let's have it.
Chelsea: Have what?
Billie: The truth. I'm not buying this whole big concern of yours over the precious sanctity of marriage, not after what you did to Bo and Hope.
Chelsea: Oh, my God. I admitted that, that was wrong, and I have been trying to change, as you know, which is why I feel so bad for what you're doing to Aunt Kayla. And the whole Bo and Hope situation is completely different. Hope wanted that divorce.
Billie: So does Steve.
Chelsea: But he belongs with Kayla. Everybody knows that.
Billie: Oh, really? And I guess you do, too, seeing as you barely know either one of them.
Chelsea: My God, I've heard, okay, from Abby, from Grandma Caroline, from Grandpa Shawn, from practically everybody in this town. But even more than that, it's the whole principle of the thing. I mean, it's not right for you to interfere with what happened to them when it's already so unfair to begin with. Why can't you just leave them alone?
Billie: Your wrong , Chelsea? I want to believe that you've turned over a new leaf, but when you start lecturing me about principles, I know something's up. So let's have it. Why are you really so upset?
Nurse: Excuse me, we need to get Belle up to her room.
Philip: I better get out of your way. Just remember what I said. Everything's gonna be fine.
Philip: All right?
Philip: I'll be waiting right outside. Hey, Mom.
Kate: Oh, honey.
Kate: Sweetie, I heard about what happened. Are you all right?
Philip: Yeah, I’m fine Belle's the one we had to rush to the hospital. You should worry about her.
Kate: Well, you know that I'm worried about her. I mean, how is she doing? Is it true that there's a chance she might lose the baby?
Mimi: Shawn, before you make any decisions, just give me a chance to say something. I know I can't explain away what I've done. I know there's no excuse for it. All I can say is that I was... desperate. When I found out that Claire was yours, it was like a knife through my heart. I just panicked. I freaked out. You know how insecure I've always been when it comes to you and Belle. I always lived in fear that someday... you'd end up back together. And I was absolutely sure that would happen if you knew you two had a baby together. I convinced myself that you would leave me the minute you found out.
Shawn D.: Even though I told you over and over again that you have nothing to worry about, that I loved you, that I chose to be with you for the rest of our lives, that I wanted our marriage to work?
Mimi: Yeah. That's what you told me. But, Shawn, I could feel in my heart that there was a part of you still holding back, the part that still loved Belle and always would, that loved her in a way you could never love me.
Shawn D.: You were wrong. What Belle and I had was over, and it had been for a very long time. I wasn't in love with her then and I'm not in love with her now.
Mimi: Really? Now who's lying, Shawn?
Billie: Answer me, Chelsea. What's the real reason you're so bothered by all this?
Chelsea: I am bothered by this because you're acting like a total hypocrite. I mean, you made me feel like the worst person in the entire world for trying to keep Bo and Hope apart. But now you're trying to come in between a married woman and her husband. I mean, what kind of example is that?
Billie: Okay, first of all, Steve and Kayla aren't married anymore, at least not in the true sense of the word. They're married in name only. And, hell, I'm not even sure if that's correct or legal because he was pronounced legally dead so long ago.
Chelsea: That's just a technicality, and you know it.
Billie: No, it's the truth, and you know it. So listen to me, why don't you just admit that the real reason you don't want me with Steve is because you can't imagine me with anybody else but your father?
Chelsea: [Scoffs] That is so not true.
Billie: Isn't it?
Chelsea: Mom, I'm not 9 years old, and this isn't "The Parent Trap." I'm not sitting here plotting to get mommy and daddy back together.
Billie: Okay. Maybe not anymore, but deep down inside, it's what you really want, and I don't blame you one bit. 'Cause once upon a time, you had a family who loved you very much, and you were devastated when you lost them. And you want to be a part of a family again, to feel that security. I understand that better than anyone.
Chelsea: Thank you. You know, it's really a shame you missed your calling as a therapist.
Billie: I just think I know you better than anyone, maybe even better than you know yourself.
Chelsea: Whatever. I have to get back to work. I've got to go, and I don't have time to talk about this anymore.
Billie: Well, hold on. I thought you were going out with friends.
Chelsea: No, I decided to work a double shift at the hospital today so I can try to finish my community service. I'll see you later.
Philip: Will you two excuse us? I just want to talk to her for a second.
Philip: Thank you. Mom.
Philip: What are you doing? I can't have you being that transparent about this, okay?
Kate: What are you talking about?
Philip: Don't play dumb with me. Why don't you just come right out and say that you hope Belle loses the baby?
Kate: Oh, my God! Because that's not what I hope. I'm sorry, maybe I didn't phrase that question correctly.
Philip: I know you too well. What I want you to know -- and what I want everyone to know -- is that Belle is my wife. I'm going to love this new baby as much as I love Claire. You understand that? Belle, hey, how are you? I just want you to go get in, get set up, I'll be right in. Hang in there.
Belle: I will.
Kate: Okay, well, I guess I'm gonna get going then.
Philip: No, no, no, no, no. I have a few more things I want to say to you before you go.
Mimi: Shawn, you know I'm right. You've never really gotten over Belle. Oh, I know you loved me, but there was always that part of your heart, that little part that still belonged to her. Actually, a big part that I could never get near. And do you know how that made me feel? I was your wife! But from day one, I have felt like I have had to fight just to hold on to you, and that wasn't fair. You never should have made those vows to me when you still had those feelings. And I never should have agreed to marry you, especially knowing what I knew. But the desperate, pathetic fool that I was, I thought I could make you forget about her. I thought that one day you would come to love me in the same way because that's what you promised me. But Belle didn't make that very easy for either one of us. She's never gotten over you, either, and she has made that very clear so many times. So this is what I have had to live with, Shawn. This is what has been tearing me in two ever since we got together. And, yes, it was wrong of me to deceive you, and I am sorry. I am more sorry than you'll ever know. But, like I said, I'm not the only one who's lied here, Shawn. The last time Belle got cramps and you went to the hospital and I saw you kissing, you kissed her more than once. And you tried to explain it away, but I know what you said wasn't the truth. If you didn't want to be with me, you should have just said so! But you told me over and over and over again that I was the one that you really wanted, not Belle. So if that was really true, then please tell me you can understand what this has been like for me and... and somehow find it in your heart to forgive me.
Shawn D.: Mimi, I can understand why you did what you did, given my history with Belle and how much we once loved each other. And maybe there were some unresolved feelings because of the way things ended with us.
Shawn D.: All I'm saying is I can understand why you might feel threatened by Claire being mine. But what I can't understand, what I will never understand is how the only one that you really thought about in all this was yourself. It was all about your happiness, your future, and what was fair to you. What about what was fair to an innocent child? You deprived her of her natural father for almost the entire first year of her life. And if you had it your way, you would have kept me from her forever. And what about what you did to Philip?
Mimi: Philip got the wife and the child he always wanted.
Shawn.: Philip thinks this child is gonna be ripped away from him.
Mimi: That's exactly what I never wanted him and Claire to have to go through because they're already bonded, and they're already a family, Shawn.
Shawn D.: Now he's had how many more months to love Claire as his own and live a lie? The guy is going through hell right now because of you. You took four lives, and you just trashed them to get what you wanted. And if you think that I am gonna forgive you for that, I can tell you right now it is never gonna happen.
Philip: Now, look, I'm only gonna say this once. Belle and her baby are in trouble. They can't handle any more stress, none at all. So unless you are here to wish them well and mean it, Mom, I need you to leave. Do you understand?
Kate: Yes. Yes, I do understand. But before you make me out to be a monster, I think you should remember something. It was not such a long time ago that you wanted that baby gone.
Philip: Yes, I wanted Belle to have an abortion. When she had been pregnant for about a day and I knew about the embryo switch and I knew she was carrying Shawn's baby, I wanted to do something about it. Can you blame me? But that was when I thought something was gonna come between us, and I don't think that anymore. We are as connected as we ever have been, and we are gonna raise this new baby just like Claire.
Kate: What about Shawn?
Philip: I'll deal with it. I've been through enough. I can handle this.
Kate: Yeah, but now you have two children that have another guy's DNA. Bo and Hope told me about Claire.
Philip: It's not what you think. It happened before we were married, and Shawn and Belle didn't even know about it.
Kate: Yes, honey, but now they do know about it.
Philip: So what, Mom? What are you saying?
Kate: What I'm saying is that maybe it's time to reconsider. You always do the honorable thing. You want to do the right thing. But a time comes when enough is enough.
Philip: Why don't you just come out and tell me whatever it is that's on your mind?
Kate: You need to walk away, all right? I thought Belle was the one because you loved her, and I thought she could make you happy if Shawn was out of her system. But now they have not only one, but they have two children together. I think you're fighting an uphill battle here, and I think you deserve better. I think you deserve a woman who is going to love you as much as you love her. And, honey, that's not Belle, and it's never going to be.
Hope: Belle has to be settled in by now. Want to head up?
Bo: Yeah, let's do it.
Bo: Hey, Chelsea.
Chelsea: Hi. What are you guys doing here? Is everything okay?
Bo: Belle had a little scare with the baby. They're running some tests right now.
Chelsea: Oh, my God. I hope that they're okay.
Bo: Yeah, so do we. We're on our way up to see her.
Chelsea: Oh, before you go, do you mind if I talk to you for a second in private?
Hope: Sure, go ahead. I'll see you up there.
Bo: I'll be up in a second.
Bo: So what is it?
Chelsea: Dad, I'm really worried about you. I mean, I know that you and Hope are trying to work things out still, but I have a feeling that she hasn't taken you back yet?
Bo: Like you said, we're working things out.
Chelsea: But you've already proven that you didn't tamper with the evidence. If she hasn't forgiven you now, what makes you think that she ever will, especially when she's pregnant with another guy's baby?
Bo: Is there a point to this?
Chelsea: The point is, is if Hope can't forgive you, then maybe you're better off with somebody else.
Bo: Somebody like Billie.
Chelsea: Exactly. And if you want another chance with her, you better act quickly before it's too late.
Bo: What do you mean, "Before it's too late"?
Chelsea: I saw Mom with Uncle Steve today, and they were kissing.
Bo: Oh, no, not again.
Chelsea: "Again"? You mean, it's happened before?
Bo: Yeah, yeah. I saw them at the Cheatin' Heart. They were dancing together, looking pretty close. Unfortunately, Kayla saw them, too.
Chelsea: Oh, my God. She must have been so hurt.
Bo: Yeah, she was devastated. I wasn't too happy myself.
Chelsea: Well, you can fix two problems at once, you know. Just go after Mom and get her back.
Bo: Come on.
Chelsea: Dad, right now I know that Mom still loves you. If you guys were together again, do you know how happy you would be? You're perfect for each other.
Bo: My future is with Hope. Billie has accepted that, and she's moving on with her life. The fact that, that's with Steve, I'm not too happy about. There's nothing I can do about it, though. If you'll excuse me.
Philip: Mom, how am I supposed to do that? How do I walk away from the best thing that's ever happened to me?
Kate: She is not the best thing that has ever happened to you. And I know it's taken me a long time, but I realize that now. You have so much to offer. You are kind and you are loving and you are handsome and you are rich and you are smart and you are a Kiriakis. Honey, you were born for so much better than this, and you have proven that. And why the hell you're playing house in some dingy little apartment with a woman who doesn't even appreciate you... there are so many women out there who would love to be with you. You need to find a woman who is going to make you happy and that you'll be happy with. You need to let Belle go. Let Belle go back to Shawn and be done with it.
[Knock on door]
Hope: Hey, up for some company?
Belle: Sure. Where's Philip?
Hope: He's talking with his mom, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to come up here and check on you, see how you're doing.
Belle: Thanks. You didn't have to do that, though. From one expectant mom to the other, you must be tired.
Hope: Nah, I'm fine. I just wanted to make sure you were, too.
Belle: I'm just worried about the baby.
Hope: Of course you are.
Belle: I know that this whole embryo thing was a mistake, but it doesn't really feel like it. It feels right somehow.
Hope: 'Cause the baby's Shawn's?
Belle: I shouldn't say that. I shouldn't even think that. I'm married to Philip, and he's devastated about Claire.
Hope: Honey, um... I know this is none of my business, but, I mean, maybe you should take this time to think about what you really want for the future, for your children. Maybe this baby is a sign. Maybe Claire's a sign.
Belle: No. I thought that at first, but there's no point even going there, Hope. I'm not the only one who's married to someone else. Shawn's married to Mimi. It’s complicated.
Hope: Hey, it's complicated, but nothing is impossible. Look at me, I'm in a similar situation -- pregnant with another man's child, desperately trying to figure out what it is that I'm going to do.
Belle: I know it's none of my business, but you and Bo belong together. You two are, like, meant to be together. When two people love each other the way you two do, nothing should be able to keep you apart.
Hope: Exactly. So maybe you should try taking your own advice.
Mimi: What are you saying?
Shawn D.: What do you think I'm saying? You betrayed me. You betrayed your best friends and my daughter.
Mimi: Shawn, please, please. I'll make it up to you. Now that everything's out in the open, we can finally really start to work on things and make our marriage stronger than it's ever been, a lot stronger. I really believe that. Please, you'll see that I'm not a horrible person. Just please give me a chance, and I can earn back your trust.
Shawn D.: No, Mimi. You can’t. It's too late for that. Our marriage is over.
Mimi: [Crying] No.
Shawn D.: We're over.
Mimi: [Sobbing] No!
Sami: Would you stop it?
Lucas: Been after you ever since he got to Salem. You know that.
Bonnie: We are gonna get Shawn back.
Mimi: It was one of your plans that got me in this mess in the first place, Mother!
Bo: I will not let you do this to yourself.
Hope: [Crying] Bo.
