Tony: Bouillabaisse. Coq au vin. Mmm, sounds wonderful, doesn't it?

Anna: Yes. I am famished.

Tony: I wonder why.

Anna: Well, it's my favorite way of working up a appetite.

Tony: Beats the elliptical any day.

Anna: [Laughs] But you didn't have to take me out to dinner, you know. We could have ordered in.

Tony: Such a beautiful summer's night. You know what I thought we'd do?

After we finish dining, we take an aperitif on the terrace and take in the sights of the city.

Anna: Tony, you're acting like we're still on our honeymoon. You know, this is the real world now.

Tony: The real world? Well, that's boring. As far as I'm concerned, Mrs. DiMera, we are still on our honeymoon. . . and always will be.

Anna: [Laughs] [Footsteps approaching]

Philip: Father.

Victor: Not here.

Philip: I'm assuming you got my message.

Victor: You promised me, Philip. You said you would handle this.

Philip: I am. It's under control.

Victor: Paul Hollingsworth is missing. He's the only one that can connect you to planting that cocaine on John's ship. Now, what part of that feels under control to you?

Philip: I've got good people working on it. If Paul so much as steps past a police station, I'll hear about it.

Victor: Paul's probably turned state's evidence already. The Feds are piling up the indictments as we speak. Now, I want this situation contained. Do you hear me?

Daniel: Some first date, huh?

Chelsea: I'd say so.

Daniel: Yeah, except. . . for this bright fluorescent lighting.

Chelsea: Who needs candlelight? I'm just. . . really happy that I'm here with you.

Daniel: me too. My God, it's funny.

Chelsea: What?

Daniel: Well, usually, when I come into work, it's typically I'm on duty. I zero in on my work. No other thoughts, no other feelings. But tonight. . .

Chelsea: Tonight?

Daniel: . . . Uh, I just want to bust out of here and take you. . .

Marlena: So you don't care, is that it?

John: I never said that.

Marlena: Well, why should you care? It's just about your past, your future. Oh, what's the difference?

John: I simply said I'm not sure I wanted to know.

Marlena: Rolf, come down here, please.

John: Let the poor guy get some sleep.

Marlena: You shouldn't have sent him to bed, not until we go to the lab and figure out what is on this disk. John, if it holds a key to your past, then it could unlock all those memories.

[Doorbell rings]

John: Excuse me.

[Door opens, closes]

Ava: Hey, there, handsome. I took the chance that you might still be up. But I see you already have company. Sorry. I will be on my way.

John: No. I want you to stay.

Tony: A toast.

Anna: Another?

Tony: Why, is there a limit? I don't recall any rules to that effect.

Anna: Fine. Fine. Toast away.

Tony: To forever being newlyweds.

Anna: [Laughs] I will certainly toast to that. Mmm.

Tony: I feel a bit guilty.

Anna: Why?

Tony: Because I'm so happy. I just feel sorry for all those poor souls out there that don't have the same kind of connection that I feel with you.

Anna: Oh, Tony, did you ever think we could make this work, that we could be this happy again?

Tony: I had my doubts. But there's a testament, isn't it, to the strength of our bond.

Anna: Definitely.

Tony: There's only one thing that would make our happiness complete.

Anna: That beachfront triplex in Bora-Bora.

Tony: Oh, we're getting there, my island sun, we're getting there.

Anna: Then what? What could make our happiness complete?

Tony: If you would quit your job at Lumberg Advertising and come and work for me.

Philip: Everything is under control. Can you just trust me, please?

Victor: I just don't want you in over your head.

Philip: I appreciate your concern, but I can handle it.

Victor: What the hell was that?

Philip: What was what?

Victor: Morgan Hollingsworth. I saw the way she looked at you.

Philip: I didn't see how she looked at me. What?

Victor: The hell you didn't. Oh, my God. Are you sleeping with Paul's daughter?

Ava: Maybe now's not the best time.

Marlena: That's a very good assessment.

John: No. Let's do it now.

Marlena: John, we were having a discussion.

John: So? Let's get someone else's take on it. Ava, would you like to weigh in?

Ava: Sure. What's going on?

Marlena: Well, actually, it has nothing to do with you.

John: Ava's my friend. I'm interested in what she has to say.

Marlena: Wonderful. Then hear her out. I'll give you some time. We can sort this whole thing out.

John: Hold on, Blondie. Wouldn't it be wise to view this situation from a few different angles?

Marlena: No. It wouldn't be wise. And I won't have you trivialize this by involving a complete stranger.

Ava: My being here is making things worse.

John: No, it's all right. This issue is just. . . a little sensitive.

Ava: Oh, I can see that.

John: I'm sorry. You were saying.

Marlena: John, when you handle this whole thing so. . . dismissively, it makes it dangerous for you. It's very self-destructive.

John: I guess I don't see it that way.

Marlena: [Scoffs] This is just futile, isn't it? You're gonna keep on playing this the same way, aren't you?

John: I don't know what you mean.

Marlena: You won't listen to anybody. You will do exactly what you want to do and to hell with the consequences.

Abe: Is he asleep?

Lexie: Finally. I had to read it to him three times.

Abe: 'Goodnight Moon. '

Lexie: What else?

Abe: Bet you know it by heart.

Lexie: He was really wound up tonight.

Abe: Right.

Lexie: And now we know why. It's not one of his moods or something we did or didn't do. [Inhales deeply] It's not a phase he'll grow out of.

Abe: Yeah. I get it, sort of.

Lexie: I'm going up.

Abe: Lex. . . wait.

Lexie: It's been a long day, Abe.

Abe: For me, too.

Lexie: I know that.

Abe: Would you please. . . just talk to me?

Lexie: W-what more is there to say? Our little boy. . . is autistic. And we just have to learn to live with it.

Daniel: This is [Chuckles] well this is strange, huh?

Chelsea: What, do you not usually kiss on first dates?

Daniel: Uh, well, actually, the whole dating thing I general is just a little, uh -- a little new for me.

Chelsea: Well, this isn't, like, your first, first date.

Daniel: Eh, sort of. Uh, yeah.

Chelsea: Shouldn't it be kind of like riding a bike?

Daniel: Well, let's just say when I ride, typically it's on a dangerous mountain trail, not some confined hospital room where the doors don't even lock.

Chelsea: Right. Bummer.

Daniel: Bummer.

Chelsea: Maybe we should have dessert.

Daniel: Maybe we should. Yeah. Um. . . oh, no way.

Chelsea: What?

Daniel: No, uh, they forgot it. Chelsea: Oh, that's okay.

[Pager beeping]

Daniel: Well, hold on here. All right, here we go. I will come back as soon as I can.

Chelsea: I will be waiting.

Daniel: You will?

Chelsea: Mm-hmm.

Daniel: Hmm.

Anna: Did I hear you right? You want me to quit my job and come work for you.

Tony: I need you, Anna. I need your creative fire, your energy, your enthusiasm.

Anna: No. No, no, no, and No.

Tony: Well, could you at least just think about it first?

Anna: Well, what is to think about? And, quite Frankly, Tony, I'm a little baffled about why you would even suggest this.

Tony: I know what a capable woman you are. You're formidable, you're headstrong, and that's exactly why I want you on my team.

Anna: And I love my job. I love what I do. Please don't ask me to give that up.

Tony: I'll tell you what we're gonna do.

Anna: Tony, please.

Tony: No, no, No. I'm not gonna pressure you. I promise. No, no, No. I'm just gonna go outside on the terrace. I'm gonna make a phone call. And then you can get a chance to think about this and --

Anna: No, I already said.

Tony: Just you think about it, and you give me your answer when I get back.

Anna: I've already given you my answer. You just refuse to accept it. You're being very selfish about this.

Reginald: Sorry to bother you, but are you Anna DiMera?

Anna: Yes, that's me.

Reginald: It's about time we finally meet.

Anna: And you are?

Reginald: Reginald Lumberg, your boss.

Anna: Mr. Lumberg! Mr. Lumberg! How serendipitous. I was just saying --

Reginald: I tried calling you earlier, but, uh, I talked to your receptionist. She said you'd left for the day but that you'd be dining here.

Anna: Oh, yes. Well, um, you could have called me this morning. I was in the office then.

Reginald: I'm sorry, but I'm afraid this is something I felt I had to do in person.

Anna: Oh.

Reginald: Mrs. DiMera, I think you should take a seat. I'm afraid I have some bad news.

Philip: I am not sleeping with Morgan. Why would you even think that?

Victor: You're playing with fire. Use a little discretion.

Philip: She's my friend, that's all. Isn't that a good thing -- keep your friends close and your enemies closer?

Victor: Yes, well, that axiom leaves something to be desired when you're talking about women.

Philip: Yeah, well, I figure if Paul resurfaces, she'll be the first to know about it, and I'll be the first to hear about it.

Morgan: Is everything okay?

Philip: Yes. Yes, of course. You've met my father, haven't you?

Morgan: Victor Kiriakis. I don't believe we've been formally introduced. Morgan Hollingsworth.

Victor: Yes, you're a friend of Chelsea's. Pleasure to formally meet you.

Morgan: So, I got your voice mail. What's up?

John: You know, you're right. I am not about to take advice from anyone on this. And I'm really not interested in viewing the small angles, either.

Marlena: Some honesty. How refreshing.

John: I just like messing with you, Blondie.

Marlena: You can mess with me any time you like. Just don't mess with your own life, John. The information on that disk could be very important to you. Please take it seriously.

Ava: Look, I can tell the two of you are dealing with something pretty heavy. I think I'm gonna go come back another time.

Marlena: Thank you.

John: No. We're through talking.

Ava: You sure about that?

John: Yes. It's amazing, isn't it, how one little disk can cause all this commotion.

John: Supposedly, this disk is some sort of key to my past. All the doors that have closed, all the memories that are lost, this lacquer-coated, silver-alloy, poly-carbonate plastic disk theoretically holds all the secrets.

Ava: Well, then why don't you do what Marlena's asking? Look into the disk. If it's true, then you can unlock the doors to who you used to be.

John: Well, that is the question, isn't it?

Philip: I just called to see how you were doing.

Morgan: You said you wanted to see me, Philip.

Philip: Well, I know how worried you are about your dad. I wanted to see if I could take your mind off things. Can I buy you a drink?

Morgan: Yeah, sure.

Philip: Dad.

Victor: Again, it's a pleasure meeting you, Miss Hollingsworth.

Morgan: Morgan.

Victor: Morgan. Well, I hope there's good news about your father soon.

Morgan: Thank you.

Victor: You take care.

Morgan: You, too.

Philip: Excuse us.

Morgan: [Clears throat] Okay, Philip, what do you really want?

Anna: Mr. Lumberg, if -- if this is about losing the Kate Roberts internet account, I can assure you I am working --

Reginald: No, unfortunately, it's bigger than that.

Anna: Oh.

Reginald: I won't bore you with the specifics. It -- it doesn't matter anyway. Bottom line is, I-I've been forced to close the agency.

Anna: I beg your pardon?

Reginald: I wish I could offer you some sort of severance package, but I'm afraid I'm bankrupt.

Anna: But I-I thought the agency was doing so much better.

Reginald: It'd probably be wise for you to go to the office and gather your belongings as soon as possible.

Anna: Yes, of course.

Reginald: It was nice to finally meet you. Take care, Mrs. DiMera.

Anna: Thank you.

Abe: So we can never talk about this. Is that what you're saying?

Lexie: I-I just don't see what good it'll do to have endless discussions, Abe. I mean, we know what's wrong with Theo. So, now it's time to --

Abe: To what? Give up? Feel sorry for ourselves?

Lexie: I'm going to make some calls in the morning, get started on a plan.

Abe: A plan?

Lexie: Yeah. Um, treatments, therapies. I'll do some research, contact some specialists. I assume you'll want to meet with them.

Abe: Yes, of course, I do. But that's not what this is all about, Lex

Lexie: This isn't about helping our son?

Abe: My God. You know I want to help him. I would give up my life for him. And you know that it breaks my heart, too, to know that he is gonna have to struggle more than most people, that he will never exactly have the life that we envisioned for him. But, Lexie, the way you're talking right now, it's -- would you look at me, please? He's still our son. He is still sweet Theo. And he still has the potential to change and grow and make his way in this world. And he can still have a great future.

Lexie: I want to believe that, Abe. I do. I want to believe that with all my heart.

Tony: So, have you decided what you're going to order?

Anna: Blanquette De Veau.

Tony: That's an excellent choice. I think I'll order the bouillabaisse. That way, we can share.

Anna: Your offer.

Tony: Yes?

Anna: I've thought about it some more.

Tony: And?

Anna: I'll accept.

Tony: Really?

Anna: Yes, really.

Tony: But -- but you were so adamant. You were outraged that I would even --

Anna: You know, I said I accept your offer. Would you just leave it at that?

Tony: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Sure, sure. I'm delighted.

Anna: There is one condition, however.

Tony: Name it.

Anna: That I work with you and not for you.

Philip: Would you stop being so suspicious?

Morgan: Philip, you have a girlfriend who happened to have just gotten divorced from your nephew, which, in my opinion, is a little weird.

Philip: Yeah, kind of.

Morgan: So, you still haven't told me why you called me.

Philip: I mean, look, this wasn't a romantic gesture, okay?

Morgan: Okay. So, if it wasn't personal, then it's, what, business?

Ava: If the disk is what you think it is, why not look into it?

John: I don't think I'm all that interested.

Marlena: I've had enough.

John: I'm just being honest. I thought you'd find it. . . refreshing.

Marlena: I sincerely hope you come to your senses because the man that you were is the only man worth being.

John: Sorry you had to see that.

Ava: Are you kidding? That was nothing. When the knives start flying, then we got something to talk about.

John: She wants to get back the man she loves, the man I 'used to be. ' If I ever hear those words again. . .

Ava: You know. . . I'm not so sure I want her to get back the man you used to be. John I like the way you think.

Chelsea: Everything okay?

Daniel: Ah, the patient lost some blood. He coded, but we were able to save him.

Chelsea: Wow.

Daniel: He should be fine. Now, where in the world were we?

Chelsea: I believe that we were actually discussing sociopolitical implications of universal healthcare in third-world countries.

Daniel: Wow, that's right. Casual conversation at its finest.

Chelsea: I actually have a bit of a surprise for you.

Daniel: Really?

Chelsea: It's not much, so don't get your hopes up.

Daniel: [Laughing] Okay.

Chelsea: Okay, close your eyes. Close them.

Daniel: All right.

Chelsea: Hmm. I'm very proud of you, Daniel. And I know what this is gonna sound extremely corny, but. . . I feel very blessed to know you. So, I thought that you should be rewarded. You can open your eyes now. Ta-da!

Daniel: Ooh, yummy.

Chelsea: I stole it from the patient in the next room. They were about to take her tray away, so don't rat me out, okay?

Daniel: You're a little bandit.

Chelsea: I am.

Daniel: I'll keep it our secret. But I really don't need that kind of dessert.

Chelsea: No?

Daniel: Mnh-mnh. No. No, I don't.

Tony: Absolutely. I mean, this is great news. Truly.

Anna: Well, I'm glad you think so.

Tony: But I'm a bit confused about your whole 180. Um, what changed your mind?

Anna: No, I mean. Oh, it finally sank in. You made me realize that I was lacking in perspective, assuming that by working with you it would somehow undermine my independence. But how could it? I mean, for me to be threatened by that just didn't make any sense. My ego isn't that fragile. I have self-esteem to burn, in fact.

Tony: Oh, Anna. You're an extraordinary woman. You're smart, strong.

Anna: And you make me strong, Tony. . . by treating me as an equal and being so supportive. We are going to make a great team.

Tony: Oh. And I'll be waiting.

Anna: And then when I get back, we can celebrate our new partnership, hmm?

Tony: Hmm. I'll order some more champagne.

Reginald: Tony DiMera, right?

Tony: Mm, yes. And you are?

Reginald: Reginald Lumberg. Lumberg Advertising.

Tony: Oh, finally we can put the face with the name.

Reginald: Sorry to bother you. I just wanted to let you know that your wife is a very resourceful woman. I'm sure she'll land on her feet. Although it was fairly sudden, so I know she was thrown when I. . .

Tony: What? Thrown? She was thrown by what?

Marlena: Could I have a white wine, please?

Victor: Marlena.

Marlena: Victor, I'm really not in the mood for company.

Victor: Can I buy you a drink?

Marlena: I'm really not in the mood for company.

Victor: Yes, I heard you. I'm sorry. I'm just concerned. You seem obviously very distressed.

Marlena: Well, that's why I would like to be alone.

Victor: This about John?

John: So damn tired of hearing about the old John.

Ava: Oh, I know.

John: Poor son of a bitch, like some sad shadow. I know what I want.

Ava: Yeah, what do you want?

Lexie: [Crying]

Abe: We're gonna get through this together.

Lexie: Oh. For so many months, I was just hoping I was wrong, that I was overreacting, you know? I was praying that they would tells us that Theo was going to be fine.

Abe: He will be fine. And you're right. We have to fight.

Lexie: Oh, there are so many decisions to make, Abe. He's counting on us.

Abe: We'll rise to that challenge. And you are so strong. He is so lucky to have you as a mother.

Lexie: [Sighs] [Crying] Everything in his life is. . . is going to be a struggle. Everything that most of us take for granted, he will have to have to fight for.

Lexie: We just have to love him.

Abe: And he loves us, too.

Lexie: Well [Sniffles] That I do know. And that's a good place to start, right?

Abe: Yes, yes.

Lexie: Yeah.

Abe: Yes.

Tony: Bankruptcy. My, that is dreadful news.

Reginald: The ad business was more of a hobby for me than anything else.

Tony: Well, not for Anna. Hobby --she's highly ambitious. I'm sure you know that.

Reginald: She put her heart and soul into her work, which is why I predict she will have no trouble finding another job.

Tony: Yes, Anna is nothing if not resourceful. Well, Mr. Lumberg, it was a pleasure to meet you.

Reginald: You too.

Tony: Well, good luck in all your future endeavors.

Anna: What?

Tony: Hmm? Oh, y-you're back.

Anna: Yes, and you're suddenly so serious.

Tony: Me, serious? Oh, you know my motto. "Life's too important to be taken seriously."

Anna: Tony?

Tony: What? It was Oscar Wilde.

Anna: Well, here's a little Mark Twain for you. 'If you tell the truth, you never have to remember anything. '

Tony: A right, all right. I think we need to have a chat.

Anna: About?

Tony: About your sudden decision to work. . . for me.

Philip: I want to be your friend, Morgan.

Morgan: Oh, really? Is that why you kissed me the other night?

Philip: I admit I'm attracted to you, but how could I not be?

Morgan: Well, I know you're also attracted to. . . finding answers.

Philip: [Sighs] Now what are you talking about?

Morgan: Look, I know you want to find my father. Is that what this is? Is that why you're so attracted?

Victor: I have no ulterior motive. I'm just concerned about you. That's all. I wouldn't dare be disingenuous with you, of all people, my psychiatrist.

Marlena: I'm sorry.

Victor: I understand.

Ava: Mm. Oh, I think that bears repeating.

John: I really like the way you think.

Ava: Oh, my God. Oh, something about this feels right. Am I crazy?

John: Is that a loaded question?

Ava: [Laughs] Clever. Mmm.

John: Ava. . .

Ava: What? What? What, is Marlena coming back? Does she have a key still?

John: She does, actually.

Ava: Okay, well, that explains why you're a little tense. Come on, she could barge in on us.

John: No. Not tonight.

Ava: Good. What's bothering you?

John: I can't get my mind off that disk. All protestations aside. . . I haven't made up my mind what I want to do.

Ava: Well, that's understandable. . . because once you're faced with retrieving those memories, then you have to go about change again. You seem to be doing all right.

John: So, what about the disk?

Ava: Destroy it.

Daniel: Do you, um, you feel like dancing?

Chelsea: Um, we don't have any music.

Daniel: Mm. Well, don't move.

Chelsea: Where are you going?

Daniel: Crazy, but I never go anywhere without my mp3.

Chelsea: Deejay Dan. Don't apologize

Daniel: Come here. Don't justify it, baby don't say the words you don't mean

Anna: [Sighs] What is there to talk about? I accepted your offer, and I thought you were thrilled.

Tony: Hmm. That's strange. I wonder why the lights flickered.

Anna: I don't know. Power problem?

Tony: Must have been a glitch. Anyway, I'm sorry, what were you saying?

Anna: Well, that I thought you w re very excited that I had accepted your offer. And, darling, I want you to understand that any initial trepidation that I might have had about working with you --

Tony: You don't have to explain yourself.

Anna: But you just said you wanted us to talk about it.

Tony: Yes, I did, and this is what I -- what I want to say. I don't care how we got here, but I'm so glad we did. My beautiful and talented wife is going to be working by my side. How lucky am I? One last toast. To our relationship. . . and our relationship in business, as well.

Morgan: That's it, right, my father? That's why you called me.

Philip: No.

Morgan: I'm not stupid, Philip.

Philip: Well, maybe if you'd lower your defenses for two seconds. . .

Morgan: It's not about me lowering my defenses. It's about me being played.

Philip: I'm being your friend.

Morgan: My friend. Right. Have a good night.

Philip: Hey, Morgan, just wait. Let me explain. [Sighs deeply] Look, your father is an integral part in the turf war between John and the Kiriakis'. So, yeah, I want to find him. And that's just a cold, hard truth you're gonna have to accept. But I don't like to see you upset. I wanted to cheer you up.

Morgan: Why?

Philip: Can't I just be a nice guy?

Morgan: That has yet to be seen.

Philip: What do you say let's get out of here? I'll give you a lift home.

Morgan: I'd like that. Thank you.

Philip: Great. [Rustling]

John: I'm not sure I actually want to destroy the disk. What would be the point? I'm sure there's other ones out there.

Ava: All right, John, then if you don't want to destroy it, just throw it in the bottom of a drawer somewhere and stop thinking about it for a while.

John: That's easier said than done

Ava: Okay, then what?

John: If you face your fears, it only makes you stronger, right?

Ava: Ah John, maybe we can find some hardware down in the lab that's compatible with that disk.

Ava: And do what?

John: Well, I'll take it from there.

Ava: John. John, wait. Let me come with you.

Chelsea: You okay?

Stephanie: Not really.

Chelsea: Let me guess -- Max, right?

E.J.: Please, just be honest with yourself, just for a moment.

Ava: You to leave the past where it belongs --in the past.
