Shawn D.: So Dad took Grandpa to the hospital?
Doug: Yes. Complaining all the way, but Caroline and Bo were not about to take no for an answer.
Shawn D.: Is it serious? Should we cancel the wedding?
Doug: Oh, absolutely not. No. Bo was very clear about that and so was your grandma. You see, Shawn had some kind of a stomach pain. It's probably nothing. They're just being careful. Bo said they would try to get back for the ceremony.
Roman: Yeah. I'm gonna head over to the hospital right now myself.
Doug: Just hold on here. Aren't you giving the bride away?
Roman: That has all been worked out. All right. I'll see you all later. I'll keep you up to date on everything.
Shawn D.: I hope Grandpa's gonna be okay.
Doug: Shawn Douglas, do not worry. I think he's gonna be just fine.
Shawn D.: This is the one thing that I did get right.
Sami: Wow, you look amazing.
Belle: [Chuckling] Thank you. Hey, Hope, do you see my phone out there? I've been waiting for Brady to call.
Hope: Hmm. Oh, yeah. It's right here. You haven't heard from him yet?
Belle: No, and I left him a ton of messages.
Sami: Stop fidgeting.
Marlena: Knock, knock, knock. Is everybody ready?
Belle: Yes, but no peeking yet.
Marlena: Even if I brought your something new?
Belle: Oh, I completely forgot about that.
Sami: No, that was my job. I'm supposed to do that. I'm the matron of honor. I'm sorry.
Belle: It's okay.
Marlena: Oh...my...darling. You are so beautiful. I brought you something.
Belle: Oh, my God.
Sami: Belle, are those the purity rings that you wore with Shawn in high school?
Marlena: Yeah. I had them put on a chain.
Belle: I don't believe it. Will you put it on me?
Marlena: I will. Oh, my goodness. I will. They don't mean, of course, what they once meant. Now they have a whole new and deeper meaning. This is about the commitment that you and Shawn have in your lives now, which is love and fidelity for the rest of your lives.
Belle: Thank you, Mom.
Marlena: Oh, baby girl.
Bartender: Excuse me. Sir? I just want to let you know that we're gonna be closing soon for a private function.
Philip: Thanks. I heard.
Maggie: And your new Great-Grandma Alice wanted you to have this as your something borrowed. It's symbolic of the ruby you and Shawn brought back to her from Puerto Rico.
Belle: [Exhales deeply] Puerto Rico's where we first kissed. [Cellphone rings] Oh. Maybe that's Brady. Hello?
Philip: Belle, it's me.
Marlena: Honey? Is something wrong?
Kayla: There. Leave it alone. Come on.
Stephanie: Wow. You guys look great.
Steve: Well, your mama thinks I'm irresistible.
Kayla: We're heading out. Are you sure you don't want to come?
Stephanie: I canít. I don't want Cordy to spend Thanksgiving alone.
Kayla: I thought you'd bring her along with us.
Stephanie: I was going to, but I-I think the whole family thing's a bit much for her right now.
Kayla: But I don't want you to miss everything.
Stephanie: Save me some turkey.
Kayla: I'll save you and Cordy everything I can get my hands on. Okay.
Stephanie: [Exhales deeply]
Steve: Let us know if you change your mind, okay?
Stephanie: I will.
Steve: Gonna miss you.
Stephanie: All right. Go. Go. Have a good time.
Steve: We will.
Stephanie: Tell Shawn and Belle I said congrats.
Steve: We'll do that.
Max: Don't worry. I have the rings right here.
Shawn D.: You better have them.
Chelsea: There you are. May I have a second alone with the groom, please?
Max: He's all yours. You look terrific.
Shawn D.: See you in a bit.
Chelsea: I just wanted to say that I'm really happy for you and Belle.
Shawn D.: Thanks, Chelsea.
Chelsea: I just can't help but think about the people that should be here that aren't here, especially the one that's not here because of me.
Shawn D.: Chelsea, he is here.
Chelsea: What do you mean?
Shawn D.: Did you see Belle's bouquet -- the blue flowers?
Chelsea: Yeah. Her something blue, right?
Shawn D.: They're forget-me-nots. It's our way of remembering John and Zack. And they're never completely forgotten as long as we always remember them. Come here.
Marlena: Sweetheart? What's the matter? Who was that?
Sami: She just got cut off. [Cellphone ringing]
Maggie: Whoever it is, I think they're calling back.
Belle: Hello? Mimi! I'm so glad you called. Hold on just a second. Would you mind?
Sami: Come on. Give her some space. Belle, don't forget that Johnny's sleeping.
Belle: Right. I wonít. Damn it, Philip. I am not doing this with you -- not today.
Philip: Belle, please, just give me five minutes.
Belle: No. I'm getting married today, and there is nothing that you could possibly say to stop me.
Hope: Sorry. I just forgot the purse.
Belle: Oh. It's okay. We're finished.
Hope: So soon?
Belle: Yeah. Mimi had things to do.
Hope: Hmm. You want to tell me the truth? Who was really on that phone?
Julie: You know, poor Grandma -- Alice is so disappointed to be missing all of this.
Maggie: Yeah, but she promised Jack and Jen she'd spend the holiday with them in London.
Doug: So, does this little cutie have a name yet?
Lucas: Oh, what the heck? I guess now is as good a time as any to make the announcement. May I introduce you to Alice Caroline Horton? We'll call her "Allie" for short after her two great-grandmothers.
Maggie: Oh, they'll be so pleased.
Julie: It's perfect.
Lucas: Good. Good.
Stephanie: We are gonna have ourselves a girls' day. I'm talking manicures, pedicures, facials -- the whole works.
Cordy: Oh, please. No make overs.
Stephanie: Right. You don't even need a make over. It's just a little boost -- something to make you feel good about yourself again.
Cordy: Steph, why do you care so much about how I feel?
Stephanie: Because Ford Decker cannot win. And I'm not talking about the case, okay? I'm talking about what you see when you look in the mirror. Don't let him change that person, Cordy, because if you do, then you've let him take everything.
Lucas: I think we should discuss this in private, don't you?
Sami: Well, it's a little late for that, isn't it? I can't believe that you just went and named our daughter without consulting me.
Lucas: Sami, I had to call her something. I thought you'd like the name.
Sami: It's not about the name. First you send Will away, and then you have papers drawn up for custody.
Lucas: Will wanted to go away on his own. I will not allow my daughter to be raised by a DiMera. And if I had any claim to Johnny, I wouldn't let him be, either.
Sami: We can't do this right now, all right? This is not the time or place.
Lucas: Yeah, I agree.
Sami: For the record... I love the name.
Belle: Hope, that was Mimi. She didn't have much time. She just wanted to call and give me her best.
Hope: Okay. I'll tell everyone to take their places...if you're sure you're really ready.
Belle: I am. I am absolutely ready.
Hope: I'll see you downstairs.
Belle: Okay. [Door closes] [Exhales deeply]
Steve: This came from your granddaddy -- the other one.
Shawn D.: Victor?
Shawn D.: At least it's not from Philip.
Steve: Open it up. Let's see what Victor granddaddy got you.
Shawn D.: It's a watch -- a nice watch.
Steve: Ooh. Read the card.
Shawn D.: Let's see. "Please accept this as a token of my best wishes. In spite of our past differences, I hope you'll do me the honor of wearing it today. Victor." What's that about?
Steve: Well, maybe it's his version of an olive branch or something.
Shawn D.: Very true.
Steve: Oh, slick daddy.
Shawn D.: Yeah.
Julie: Excuse me, ladies. The mother of the bride -- she's needed upstairs.
Marlena: Oh, my gosh! [Laughter]
Philip: Why aren't you at the wedding?
Billie: Oh, I don't know. I thought I'd come hang out with my little brother.
Billie: What do you mean, "why?" You're still in love with Belle, and she is getting remarried. That's got to be driving you crazy.
Philip: It would if I thought she'd really go through with it.
Billie: Excuse me?
Philip: When Belle walks down the aisle, she'll be thinking of me, not Shawn.
Billie: And you know that how?
[Soft music plays]
Woman: Oh. Claire.
Woman: Keep going. [Laughter] Good girl. ["Here comes the bride" plays]
Billie: If you did anything to ruin Belle and Shawn's wedding...
Philip: All I did was send a little reminder to Belle. She wouldn't take my call, so I had no other choice.
Billie: Oh, okay. You're starting to scare me.
Philip: Why is that?
Billie: Because you're sounding more and more like Victor every day.
Marlena: Honey, what is it? Is something wrong? Listen. Your daddy's right here. He's always with us. He's on your right side. Okay? You can do this. You be happy. Just be happy. We love you.
Belle: [Sniffles] New watch?
Shawn D.: A present from Victor.
Fr. Kelly: Dearly beloved, we are gathered here in the sight of God to unite Belle and Shawn in holy matrimony, which is an honorable estate instituted of God and therefore not to be entered into unadvisedly.
Stephanie: What do you think? Too Goth.?
Cordy: Too Goth. [Knock on door] Are you expecting somebody?
Stephanie: No. Oh, my God. It's Ford Decker.
Ford: Open the door, bitch! I know you're in there! If you don't open up right now, I'm gonna break this damn door down!
Shawn D.: I can't believe it. We're finally standing here. I mean, how many years has it been since we first talked and dreamt about this day? I think we were just a couple of kids back in high school when it started. It seems like a million years ago now, doesn't it? Things haven't exactly gone the way that we planned them... but there is one thing that's not changed, and that is my love for you. It's always been there, and it always will be. You're everything that I need, Belle, and I can't imagine my life without you by my side. And so I give you this ring... in token and in pledge... of my constant faith and abiding love, with everything that I am and everything that I will become.
Belle: [Sniffles] [Clears throat] Shawn, I remember back in high school when we gave each other another set of rings [Sniffles] and thanks to my mom, I have them today around my neck. And now, just like then, they're a symbol of our deep commitment and the love that from this day forward will again be pure.
Shawn D.: Belle... ...our love has always been pure.
Belle: Stop. [Sniffles] I can't do this.
Belle: I'm so sorry. I can't do this.
Shawn D.: Belle, what is it?
Belle: Uh... I c-- I can't -- I can't do this if -- if you keep interrupting me. I had it memorized, and now I can't remember what I was gonna say.
Shawn D.: Just say what's in your heart.
Belle: [Inhales, exhales deeply] I love you. I love you, and I just thank God that you didn't give up on us. [Sniffles] You fought for me and for Claire, and I'll never forget that... because not only did you prove that you loved us... but that my dad wasn't the only hero in my life. I had someone else I could count on -- always. If he were here today, he'd be really happy and he'd be really at peace, knowing that his baby girl was in the best of hands. [Sniffles] [Exhales deeply] Shawn, I promise to be a good wife... and to love you and to be faithful to you for as long as we both shall live. With this ring [Sniffles] I make that pledge.
Fr. Kelly: In as much as you consented together in marriage, by virtue of the powers vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife. Whom God has joined together, let no man put asunder. [Applause]
Philip: The wedding should be over by now -- one way or the other.
Billie: Philip, you got to let this go.
Philip: I canít...because I know she still loves me.
Billie: Philip --
Philip: Billie, you may be satisfied spending the rest of your life alone and miserable, but I'm not. I'm gonna fight.
Ford: I said open up! If you don't, I'll break this door down!
Stephanie: Go ahead, Ford! I'm calling security! They'll be up in less than a minute!
Ford: Don't worry. I'm going. You just know that if you keep posting those flyers or dare open your mouth about our night together, you'll be sorry! I'll make sure this whole town knows what a lying whore you really are!
Cordy: Is he gone? [Pounding on door]
[Woman singing opera in Italian]
Stefano: What took you so long?
Stefano: I feel as if I'm looking at a vision. Do I dare hope this is all for me?
Marlena: Don't be absurd. It was my daughter's wedding today.
Stefano: Ah, yes. Another joyous occasion. Two daughters wedded, one after the other. Brava.
Marlena: I don't consider Sami's marriage a joy.
Stefano: No? Someone putting a bullet in my son rather spoiled it. Now, why have you come to me? Huh? What can I do for you?
Marlena: I would like you to give Sami her freedom.
Stefano: "Her freedom"?
Marlena: We both know about this marriage. She is trying to protect her family.
Stefano: [Laughs] Is that what she told you -- that I forced her into a loveless marriage?
Marlena: That's a fact.
Stefano: Ah. It is anything but a fact. Marlena, she's head over heels. I heard her say so myself. Salute.
Billie: It's nice to know you think so little of me. I'll cancel our dinner reservations.
Philip: Billie, wait.
Billie: No! You wait! You know what? I am single, I am sexy, and I am fabulous. And just because I don't have a man in my life does not make me a miserable human being. Could I use a little "romance"? Oh, yeah. Absolutely. And when the time is right, it'll happen. [Sighs]
Lucas: Philip, what are you doing here? Everybody's on their way.
Philip: Is it over?
Lucas: The wedding? Yeah. Shawn and Belle are hitched, man. Shawn's gonna flip out if he sees you here.
Philip: I'm out of here.
Lucas: Don't act like that. You understand, right?
Philip: I'm leaving. When the time is right, it'll happen.
Lucas: What was that? What does that mean?
Billie: You don't want to know.
Lucas: No. I do.
Billie: Happy Thanksgiving. See you later.
Lucas: All right.
Maggie: All right, everyone! Take your seats! Caroline put me in charge of dinner, so I'm gonna go check on it. In the meantime, the bar is open. [Cellphone rings]
Steve: I'll be over here.
Stephanie: Hey, Mom, it's me. I'm sorry to bother you.
Kayla: That's okay, baby. What's up? What's wrong?
Stephanie: Is Dad there? I don't want him to know.
Kayla: I'll be right home.
Stephanie: No, it can wait.
Kayla: No. I'll be home in 10 minutes.
Belle: Ready for our big entrance?
Shawn D.: Oh, yeah. I can't wait.
Belle: Give me that.
Shawn D.: What? Why?
Belle: Because I don't want to know what time it is today because I don't want it to end.
Shawn D.: You happy?
Shawn D.: Oh, yeah? [Laughter]
Max: Attention! Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. and Mrs. Shawn Brady! [Cheers, silverware clinking]
Steve: Give us another one. Do another one.
Marlena: You're wrong. Sami loves one man, and that's Lucas.
Stefano: Well, believe what you will, but only last night I heard her very touching declaration -- a declaration that has restored my son's will to live.
Marlena: She was forced into it.
Stefano: That girl can't be forced into anything. She has a mind of her own.
Marlena: So did I. You made me do far worse things.
Stefano: I'm sorry you feel that way.
Marlena: In any event... I've come to beg you to give Sami her freedom. Leave her alone. Let her go. She's happy now. She has a family. She has Lucas. She has Will. Take E.J. back to Italy and leave her in peace. If you ever -- if you ever cared about me... you will do that for me.
Stefano: [Inhales, exhales deeply] You meant the world to me, Marlena. You know that.
Marlena: So you'll do it?
Stefano: Yes. For a price.
Marlena: A price? Oh, there's always a price. What is your price?
Stefano: The same thing that I've always wanted... queen of the night.
Marlena: So, there we have it. Was this your plan all along?
Stefano: [Chuckles] If you are asking me if this is some kind of grand design, no. I mean, I had no way of knowing or predicting that you would come to me this way. But now that you have --
Marlena: And only you could sink quite so low.
Stefano: See, now, what do you think I was going to do? I loved you, Marlena... wanted you. And the thought that now the possibility, after I had given up all hope -- it's impossible. It is impossible not to make... the dream a reality finally.
Marlena: I didn't say yes.
Stefano: That's true. It is your decision. You must decide what is the thing that is most important in that, oh, heart of yours, my dear... your love for your daughter... or your hatred for me.
Doug: Yes. Okay. Yes. Yes. May I have your attention, please?
Julie: Yes. You got it.
Doug: First of all, Shawn is fine.
Julie: Oh, good.
Doug: Yes. Caroline just called. It turned out that he just had some indigestion.
Julie: Well, I can believe that. He was tasting everything.
Doug: I would like to say something, though. What a wonderful thing it is that we can celebrate the wedding of Belle to Shawn Douglas on Thanksgiving Day... 'cause it reminds us all that along with the pain and the tragedy of the past year, we also have experienced some pretty incredible highs. Might even say some were even miracles. Some lost loves were reunited. We welcomed two new members into the family... and re-welcomed another, who managed against all odds to triumph over our enemies. There have been losses, too. In particular, one very special person... a man many of us called friend, son, father, husband. That man, of course, is John Black, who is here with us only in spirit tonight. Dear God, we miss you, John. We always will. And coming now full circle, we welcome John's and Marlena's daughter into our extended family. We couldn't have asked for a better addition.
Never revealing their depth and tell me that we belong together dress it up with the trappings of love I'll be captivated I'll hang from your lips instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above and I'll be your cryin' shoulder I'll be love suicide I'll be better when I'm older I'll be the greatest fan of your life
Doug: So I raise my glass and encourage you all to focus on our blessings.
And rain falls angry on the tin roof as we lie awake in my bed
Doug: Though our troubles are far from over, together we can beat them, no matter what they are.
My love is alive and not dead and tell me that we belong together dress it up with the trappings of love
Doug: Together, we will survive. Together, we will make our family whole again.
Of heartache that hang from above and I'll be your cryin' shoulder I'll be love suicide and I'll be better when I'm older I'll be the greatest fan of your life
Stefano: [Chuckles] You've brought me joy, Marlena... my queen.
Marlena: Your queen... is what you've made me. And you've also made me... your killer. Deep inside, that instinct still lives. It's a darkness you put in my soul. And when it comes out, Stefano, it will come out with a vengeance. A vengeance.
Stefano: You witch.
Stefano: I'm not finished with you, Marlena! I'm not finished. [Breathing heavily]
Sami: It was really nice spending time with you. I guess the question is, what'll we do tomorrow?
Lucas: It's not up to me.
Steve: Okay. Give me kisses.
Steve: I just want to say congrats again. You got yourselves a nice little family.
Shawn D.: This family wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you. We still owe you one.
Belle: You helped us get our daughter back. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Shawn D.: Exactly.
Steve: I'm not looking.
Hope: Listen, Brady, no worries. I'll be right here. Tell your dad that I said hello and that I'm really glad that he's feeling so much better. Okay. I love you. Bye.
Only to hold you only to...
Hope: I know I'm not wrong. I know you're hiding something, Belle, but what is it? [Sighs] "One message." [Sighs] I can't do this. It's none of my business. Yes, I can. Yes, I can. I can do it for my son.
Philip: Belle, it's me. I wish you'd turn your phone back on. I want to talk to you... before it's too late.
I want to love you
Philip: You cannot marry Shawn because I'm the one you're in love with. I knew it in Tulsa, and I knew it the night me made love at the pub. And most of all, I knew it when I held you in my arms at Titan last night. You can't let me go... and you never will.
Only to love you
E.J.: Samantha, you're the reason I'm not dead, darling.
Hope: She and Philip are still seeing each other. They're still in a relationship.
Belle: I love you, and I never want to lose you.
Shawn D.: That's one thing you don't have to worry about.Back to The TV MegaSite's Days Of Our Lives Site
