Lucas: Here.

Kate: [Sighs] You don't have to stay, you know.

Lucas: What, are you kidding me?

Kate: Come on. You should go be with Chloe. I'm your mother. It's still your job to listen to me, okay?

Lucas: All right, I'll go. I just want to say something before I leave. I want you to know how much it means to me and Chloe that you're okay with, you know, us.

Kate: [Chuckles] You know, when I think about the way I-I treated her, it's kind of ironic -- actually, probably very fitting that now I'm going to owe her my life.

[Monitor beeping]

Daniel: Good morning, Chloe. You all ready for today?

Chloe: Yes, of course.

Daniel: Slept well?

Chloe: I did. Uh, just give me those forms to sign.

Daniel: Yeah. Yeah. Well, you just need to initial here and here, and then you just sign --

Chloe: Yeah, I know. I can read. Just give it to me, and you can leave me alone.

Philip: No. No flowers until Mom's immune system starts working again. Uh, she's already got the two dozen books you sent. Yeah. Yeah, I'll call you when it's done. All right, thanks, Billie. Bye.

Melanie: Good morning.

Stephanie: I have class Thursday mornings. I don't check in till 10:30, not that I need to explain myself to you.

Philip: Hey.

Stephanie: Hi. I thought you'd be with your mom.

Philip: I was. I'm gonna go back later.

Melanie: [Clears throat] Most important ones are on top. Nina doss returned your phone call, and Marie went home sick.

Philip: Marie?

Melanie: Mm-hmm.

Philip: Shoot. Hey, call her. She's got my notes for the presentation tomorrow. How far along are we on that?

Stephanie: Not very far.

Melanie: Well, I-I'll do whatever you need.

Philip: You haven't been trained yet. Can you help her out, Steph?

Stephanie: Yeah. Yeah. Melanie and I will get it done together.

Philip: Good.

Melanie: Great.

Philip: I'll be in here getting my notes. You guys have any questions, give me a shout.

Stephanie: Okay. Okay, we have a lot of work to do, so we better get started.

Melanie: And we will get it all done. But let me get one itty bitty little thing straight. I don't take orders from you.

Stephanie: Okay. If you want to figure it out on your own, be my guest.

Melanie: Okay, look. [Clears throat] I know you tried to duck Philip out of hiring me because you want to help me screw up and screw myself out of a job.

Stephanie: I have too much pride in my work to let anything personal get in the way of business.

Melanie: Ooh, a team player.

Stephanie: I am. And knowing Philip, you better be one, too, if you expect to keep your job.

Philip: [Clears throat] Here are my thoughts on the PowerPoint.

Stephanie: Great. Uh, about Nick's future fuels project. I couldn't find the files on the server.

Melanie: Oh, that's 'cause the project's been put on the back burner, but I can go down to the archives and grab them for you.

Philip: Quick study.

Melanie: Well, all the stuff you brought to my house was very helpful. I really appreciate you giving me this job, Philip, and I plan on not screwing this up.

Philip: That's good.

Melanie: Oh, uh... when is payday?

Philip: Payroll has yet to process your paperwork, so probably about a month from now.

Melanie: A month?

Philip: Is that problem?

Melanie: [Scoffs] No.

Kayla: Hi, Philip.

Philip: Hello.

Kayla: Hey, baby, you're not gonna get very far today without this.

Stephanie: Oh, I didn't even notice I left it. Was it on the table? Thank you for bringing it.

Kayla: Listen, thank you for breakfast. But next time, it's my treat. Do you understand me?

Stephanie: Okay.

Kayla: Okay. Melanie, you work here, too?

Melanie: Yes, it is my first official day on the job.

Kayla: Oh, I see. Thank you.

Philip: Bye-bye.

Kayla: Philip, I just wanted you to know that I saw your mom last night. And I know it's difficult for you to see her so weak, but I want you to know, from a doctor's perspective, she's really doing remarkably well.

Philip: That's good to hear. Uh, can I talk to you ladies for a second?

Stephanie: Yeah.

Kayla: Of course.

Philip: So...

Charlotte: So, I don't have a whole raft of paperwork for my new patients to fill out, so if you could just maybe offer them some water, make sure that they're comfortable.

Cynthia: Got it.

Charlotte: Great. Thank you, Cynthia.

Marlena: Hello.

Charlotte: Hi, Dr. Evans. Morning.

Marlena: Why don't you call me Marlena?

Charlotte: Charlotte. Dr. Johnson didn't tell you, did she?

Marlena: Tell me what?

Charlotte: Well, since my office is right next to yours, we're gonna be sharing a reception area.

Marlena: Oh, I see.

Charlotte: I hope that's not a problem.

Marlena: No. I'm sure it'll be just fine.

Charlotte: I-I can't tell you -- my father would be so delighted to know that I'm working with one of his all-time favorite students.

Marlena: Fine, thanks. If you need anything at all, you'll let me know.

Charlotte: I'll take all the help I can get.

Marlena: When do you start seeing patients?

Charlotte: Actually, right about -- right about now. Morning, John. It's good to see you again.

John: You, too.

Marlena: I'm sorry this got sprung on you the last minute. If I had known about it earlier, I would have --

Cynthia: It's okay. Really. I'm fine.

Marlena: Well, I was thinking that perhaps we could -- [Charlotte and John laughing] I-I-I thought -- I thought we would try to --

Cynthia: Dr. Evans?

Marlena: Yes?

Cynthia: Are you okay?

Marlena: Oh, no. I'm fine. I'm fine. [Laughter continues]

Melanie: No. No. No. [Keys clacking]

Philip: We're trying to stagger our visits so we don't wear her out. She didn't want Billie and Austin to fly in, but do you think I should insist?

Kayla: I think you should do whatever she wants. You know your mother's used to being in control, and I think she's feeling pretty helpless right now.

Philip: But if -- if she ne-- if the fa-- if the family needs to fly in...

Kayla: I will let you know. I promise.

Philip: Thank you. [Cellphone ringing] Excuse me.

Kayla: [Sighs] Got time for coffee?

Stephanie: Yes. Great.

Kayla: Don't forget your wallet.

Stephanie: Oh.

Sasha: How's your first day going?

Melanie: It's going fine, except my help just left me to have coffee with Mommy.

Philip: Stephanie's an unpaid intern, Melanie.

Melanie: I know.

Philip: She goes above and beyond. I don't want to hear that kind of talk out of you or anyone.

Melanie: Sorry.

Philip: Now, you've done a really good job getting up to speed, and you won't usually be working with Stephanie. I've made sure of at. But she's gone out of her way to make nice with you.

Melanie: Yeah, right.

Philip: And I expect the same out o you, understood? I won't tell you again.

Melanie: You won't have to. [Sighs]

Kayla: Why didn't you tell me that, um, Melanie was working here

Stephanie: So we hate each other's guts. I'm a big girl. I can handle it.

Kayla: I'm sure you can. It's just it would be a bit uncomfortable, I would imagine.

Stephanie: Mom, I can handle it.

Kayla: Oh, right. So, are you busy today?

Stephanie: Yeah. I can't believe how stressed I am over this deadline. When I think about what you do at the hospital -- run the place, and you have a baby.

Kayla: Well, that's 'cause I have a wonderful family to back me up.

Stephanie: I couldn't do anything without you. When I think about what Philip's going through, how scared he might be... oh, I love you.

Kayla: Oh, baby, I love you, too. My angel.

Lucas: You have no idea how happy Chloe is to have a chance to help save your life, just like joy did for her.

Kate but for Chloe -- I mean, with her medical history...

Lucas: Mom, she wouldn't do this if she wasn't comfortable with all the risks involved.

Kate: I just wish we had more time. I wish we could search for another donor.

Lucas: We can't.

Kate: You'll tell me the truth, right? Has she expressed any reservations about this surgery?

Lucas: No.

Kate: Oh, God, Lucas.

Lucas: What?

Kate: Look at your face. I know that look.

Lucas: Mom, really, it's no big deal.

Kate: Why don't you let me decide that?

Lucas: All right. Last night, Chloe came in for a pre-op exam with Daniel. And afterwards, she was a little bit, um...I don't know.

Kate: Nervous?

Lucas: Yeah. Well, I guess she was a little nervous. It's probably because of you. You know, she wants things to go well for you, obviously, for your sake. She cares about this situation more than you'll ever know really. That's probably why she was so intense last night.

Kate: I hope that's the reason. Lucas, I don't want to go through with this unless Chloe is 100% sure about it. I don't.

Lucas: She is, Mom. Really. If she wasn't, then I'd put a stop to it myself.

Daniel: Is there, um, something wrong?

Chloe: I think you know.

Daniel: Do you want to talk about what happened yesterday?

Chloe: Yesterday?

Daniel: When I examined you.

Chloe: Nothing happened yesterday.

Daniel: That's... exactly what I was going to say. So what's the problem?

Chloe: There is no problem, except that I've been fasting since midnight, I'm freezing, and I've been waiting for an hour or a nurse to bring me an extra blanket, and I'm just --

Daniel: Nervous. It's okay. Just admit it. You're nervous.

Chloe: I'm not nervous. I just want to get this show on the road.

Daniel: Okay. I'll be right back with your blanket.

Chloe: No! I don't want any special treatment. I'll wait for a nurse, okay?

Lucas: Everything okay in here?

Melanie: So glad I wasted a paycheck I don't have on these shoes right?

Stephanie: [Chuckles]

Philip: Oh, thanks.

Melanie: For you.

Philip: Thank you. Ohh. I asked for no mayo.

Melanie: I'll take it back.

Philip: It's okay.

Melanie: And I got you a latte, Steph.

Stephanie: Thanks. Is it nonfat?

Melanie: Yeah. Totally nonfat.

Stephanie: I got that PowerPoint ready. How are the re-prographics going?

Melanie: Well, we missed the deadline, so I had to recopy it all myself. And the machine is broken. It was literally smoking. And then I had to get 13 lunches, but, uh, other than that, it's been great.

Stephanie: [Sighs] Can I help?

Melanie: There's only one color copier.

Stephanie: Philip really, really needs us to get this done today.

Melanie: I'm doing the best I can.

Philip: Steph, we need to go over those third-quarter numbers, okay?

Stephanie: Okay.

Melanie: "Steph, we need to go over those third-quarter numbers." Is that what you kids are calling it these days? [Sighs]

Marlena: Cynthia, please make sure that Dina has a follow-up appointment next week.

Cynthia: Sure.

Marlena: Thanks.

Charlotte: Hello again. I'd love to see you early next week. You can make an appointment with Cynthia.

John: Thank you.

Charlotte: Great. Have a good day.

John: You too.

Marlena: So, you're going to continue therapy?

John: Yes.

Marlena: I guess that means you enjoyed your session, hmm?

John: Well, I guess as much as a person can enjoy being shrunk. Excuse me.

Chloe: Everything's fine, Lucas.

Lucas: Doesn't look that way to me.

Daniel: Well, actually, Chloe seems to be a bit edgy about the surgery.

Chloe: What? I am not the least bit edgy. I'm fine. I'm better than fine! I'm not afraid of this surgery, nor am I in the least bit ambivalent. I thought I made that clear.

Daniel: You did. You did. I'm sorry. I should have said "impatient, anxious to get it over with."

Chloe: Exactly. But not because I'm edgy. It's because I want Kate to get my bone marrow, the sooner the better. I want her to get well. That's why I'm here! That's why I'm doing this! [Sighs]

Lucas: What? What are you looking at?

Daniel: Her blood pressure is rising.

Chloe: I wonder why.

Lucas: Me too, Chloe. Why? Why are you so tense right now?

Chloe: I get it! I'm gonna try to stay calm!

Daniel: Well, you better try a little harder. Your systolic just went up 10 points.

Lucas: 10 points? Is that bad or something?

Daniel: Well, if we can't keep her B.P. under control, considering the risk, we may have to call the whole thing off.

Chloe: We are not calling this off.

Lucas: It's all right, Chloe.

Chloe: Of course it is. Tell him to stop being such an alarmist. He's just hovering, and it's driving me crazy. That's why my blood pressure is up.

Lucas: All right, just try to lax for me, okay? Lean up. Let me just rub your back a little bit. How's that? Is that any better? Does that feel good?

Chloe: Yeah, it feels good. Thanks.

Daniel: Well, actually, her numbers are improving.

Chloe: See? You're the best medicine, honey. Thank you. You can go now. I'm fine.

Daniel: I will. I'll go, uh, check on Kate.

Lucas: Perfect. Thank you.

Daniel: Have me paged, okay, if you need anything.

Chloe: I won't need anything. I have everything I need right here. Thank you.

Lucas: We're all alone now. Be honest with me. Are you okay?

Chloe: Why does everyone keep asking me that?!

Kate: Daniel.

Daniel: Good morning. How you doing?

Kate: Well, you just made my day.

Daniel: Yeah?

Kate: And the nurse just took my temperature a few minutes ago.

Daniel: Humor me.

Kate: I'm not gonna complain about the nausea or the fatigue because I'm so grateful to be getting another chance. It's kind of hard to take not seeing your face, not being able to touch you.

Daniel: Soon. Real soon.

Kate: Thank you... for everything. You literally gave me life. Thank you for making it so worth living.

Kayla: Hey, Marlena.

Marlena: Hi, there.

Kayla: I need to ask you a huge favor.

Marlena: Okay. You mean, would I be happy to share my waiting room with Dr. Taylor? It's already worked out.

Kayla: Oh. She spoke to you already?

Marlena: She's already moved in.

Kayla: Oh, I'm sorry. I-I didn't know she was doing it today. I had a little detour on my way to work. I would have talked to you first thing this morning.

Marlena: Well, Cynthia got it all worked out. I don't think it'll be any trouble.

Kayla: Oh. Thank you for understanding.

Marlena: In the scheme of things, I think it's no big deal, really.

Kayla: Is everything else all right?

Marlena: All things considered, I-I-I -- well, as well as can be expected.

Kayla: How's John?

Marlena: John is, uh -- I told you. John is in therapy.

Kayla: Well, yes, you did.

Marlena: Yeah. I suppose you haven't mentioned that to anybody.

Kayla: Of course not. So, how's it going?

Marlena: Well, I-I'm thrilled that he's seeing somebody. Sadly, the doctor that I recommended, my old mentor, has since passed away.

Kayla: Oh, no. So, who's seeing him?

Marlena: Seems that Dr. Taylor's daughter is also a skilled psychiatrist and has taken over his practice.

Kayla: Charlotte Taylor.

Marlena: The same.

Kayla: I see. So, uh, she's treating him. Is there a problem?

Marlena: Well, ye-- uh, I can't even quite put my finger on the problem.

Kayla: You know, I-I've only spoken to her on the phone. What's she like?

Marlena: Enthusiastic, energetic, clearly skilled... nice-looking.

Kayla: Hmm. You know, I hat to even say this, but do you think you might be jealous?

Melanie: I'm gonna finish copying, collating, labeling, and stapling, and you are going to...

Stephanie: Go find those documents in the vault, and then I'll be with Philip the rest of the afternoon.

Melanie: [Giggles] Yeah. [Door slams] Oopsies!

Stephanie: Hello! Somebody, I'm in here! Hello!

Marlena: Jealous? No. For heaven's sakes, why would I be jealous? In fact, John and I aren't even together anymore. And -- and -- and --

Kayla: And what?

Marlena: And -- and when we were, well, we're not teenagers. Come on. Our relationship was sophisticated. It was based on mutual respect, mutual trust.

Kayla: Well, you're not a couple anymore, and he's a very different John.

Marlena: Yes, he is. I-I find that he's, uh, trying sometimes a little to hard to be, I don't know, ingratiating, especially to women. I-I-I just -- I find it disconcerting. That's all.

Kayla: Disconcerting?

Marlena: I find it demeaning.

Kayla: Ah. Well, um, let me rephrase my question, then. Do you wish you were the one that was helping John, rather than Dr. Taylor?

Marlena: Of course I'd like to be the person helping -- oh. Well, maybe in that way, maybe I do feel a little jealous.

Kayla: But you got what you wanted. John's in therapy. And he's with a qualified, highly motivated professional.

Marlena: No, I know. But the thing is, I--

Kayla: What?

Marlena: John won't tell me what goes on in his sessions.

Kayla: Marlena, if you were his doctor, would you want him talking to everybody about his therapy?

Marlena: No!

Kayla: Exactly. Listen, you are too invested in his case. You both know that you can't be involved in his care.

Marlena: It isn't just about his care. It's about his life. Kayla, you know, when I met John, he -- he -- he picked his name off a plaque on the wall. He didn't know who he was or where he been or where he was going, what he wanted, what he was doing. He didn't --

Kayla: You gave him his life back.

Marlena: He did the same thing for me.

Kayla: And now you want to help him again.

Marlena: I still love him.

Kayla: Oh, I understand. More than you know.

Marlena: When I see you with Steve, I-I just feel hopeful.

Kayla: Don't give up on that.

John: [Breathes deeply]

Charlotte: John? Are you all right?

Chelsea: [Clears throat] Could you tell Philip that I'm here?

Melanie: Why? Are you here?

Chelsea: His mother, my grandmother, is having a bone-marrow transplant today, and we're both supposed to go down to the hospital and be with her.

Melanie: Have a seat. I'll tell him you're here.

Chelsea: Today.

Melanie: If you're in such a hurry to find him, why don't you go look yourself?

Chelsea: Why Philip hired you is beyond me.

Melanie: You know, I have work to do, so could you shut up?

Chelsea: You have quite a little cushy job here, don't you?

Melanie: Cushy?

Chelsea: Corporate perks, a health club. Meanwhile, Nick's in jail, waiting to stand trial for murder.

Melanie: You're right. Poor Nick. But wait a minute. Didn't he kill somebody? Oh, that's right. My Father.

Chelsea: Are you expecting me to feel sorry for you?

Melanie: No, no, no, no. I'm expecting you to be mean and nasty, just like always. But luckily, I don't really like you either, so I guess we're even.

Chelsea: That's so funny. You know what? I think I'm gonna tell Philip how wonderfully you treat his family members. Except that he's not in his office. So, Melanie, do you have any idea where he could be? Or, I'm sorry, would that hurt your pretty little head that already has very few brain cells in it?

Melanie: Actually, I haven't seen him in a while.

Philip: You can't open it from the inside.

Stephanie: Philip, what are you doing in here?

Philip: It's my vault.

Stephanie: Well, good, then open it.

Philip: I can't.

Stephanie: But it's your vault. Use the combination. You have the combination, right?

Philip: First of all, we're not outside. We're inside. And that door's on an automatic timer.

Stephanie: Help! Somebody!

Philip: It's soundproof.

Daniel: Kate, I don't deserve the credit you're trying to give me.

Kate: Why would you say something like that?

Daniel: I didn't do the research that made this procedure possible.

Kate: No, you didn't. But, I mean, you found Dr. Canard. You pulled in personal favors. You brought him here from Harvard. Come on, we -- we both know I'd be on my death bed right now if it wasn't for you... and for Chloe. Have you seen her today? How's she doing?

Daniel: Fine.

Kate: Look, I know -- Lucas told me that she might be having reservations about the surgery.

Daniel: No. No, no, no, she's adamant. She wants to do it.

Kate: Yeah, well, I hope she doesn't feel like she has to do it, you know? I want to talk to her.

Daniel: Uh, Kate, you don't want to --

Kate: No, I do. I want to talk to her because I'm not gonna go ahead with this surgery if she's [Sighs] feeling pressured to do something that she's not prepared for. Because if something should happen to her, I would never forgive myself.

Lucas: You know, we better stop.

Chloe: Why?

Lucas: Because somebody could walk in. You never know. [Door knocks]

Lucas: Ah, right there. See? Told you we'd get busted.

Chloe: Come in.

Nurse: Ready for your I.V.?

Chloe: Oh, sure.

Nurse: I'm also gonna need you to remove all your jewelry.

Chloe: Oh, no. Not my engagement ring, too.

Nurse: Sorry. Rules.

Lucas: We know Dr. Jonas pretty well. We could bend the rules a little, maybe.

Chloe: No, it's okay.

Lucas: What happened to "that ring will never leave my finger again"?

Chloe: I don't need a ring to remind me of how I feel about you.

Lucas: Yeah?

Chloe: Make this safe for me?

Lucas: I will. I promise.

Chelsea: Okay, if you don't know where Philip is, how about Stephanie?

Melanie: I guess you don't care that I've actually got a job to do besides playing your personal assistant.

Chelsea: Hey, Sasha. Do you know where Philip is?

Sasha: He said he was going into the vault a couple minutes ago.

Melanie: The vault?


Stephanie: I'm so sorry. I don't know how I could have let that door shut behind me.

Philip: I don't know, either.

Stephanie: I didn't plan this.

Philip: I never said you did.

Stephanie: So, when does it open?

Philip: Sooner or later. Mostly I'm thinking later.

Stephanie: You're so calm. How could you be so calm?

Philip: What's the point in getting upset?

Stephanie: The point is, we're trapped in here, and we have a million things to do and --

Philip: And there's no point in panicking.

Chelsea: Why is the door shut?

Sasha: Good question.

Chelsea: Well, is it locked?

Melanie: You might as well give up.

Sasha: I hate to say this, but I saw Stephanie going towards the safe a little while ago, too.

Chelsea: Philip, are you in there? Stephanie?

Sasha: They can't hear you.

Chelsea: I cannot believe that they're locked in here together.

Melanie: [Clears throat] Me neither. How do we get them out?

Sasha: We can't.

Philip: [Sighs] Is it getting hot in here?

John: Just felt a little headache coming on.

Charlotte: Is there anything I can do? I-I probably have aspirin in here somewhere.

John: No, no. Aspirins won't touch these things.

Charlotte: In our next session, I'd like to attempt some biofeedback to see if we can't address this chronic pain.

John: I'm willing to try anything right about now.

Charlotte: You did really good today, John, for somebody that was so reluctant to commit to therapy.

John: So far, it's been surprisingly not unpleasant.

Charlotte: Thanks. I'll take that as a high compliment, coming from you. When do I see you again?

John: Actually, I'm not gonna make another appointment, Dr. Taylor. I'm not sure that I can come back.

Melanie: Okay, here it is. "In the event the vault's self-locking mechanism is engaged, it is programmed to unlock automatically at a preset time."

Chelsea: That's it? It doesn't say when?

Melanie: Oh, yeah, it does. I just forgot the most important part.

Chelsea: So, what do we do, call a locksmith?

Melanie: Uh, I don't think that's gonna cut it.

Sasha: The few times that this happened before, it was never locked for more than a few hours.

Melanie: Gee, that makes me feel so much better. I think we should call 911.

Chelsea: Why, so they can bust open the door with a blowtorch and then Titan has to spend thousands trying to get a new one? No, I don't think so. I'm sure that Stephanie and Philip are fine in there.

Melanie: I guess.

Chelsea: Well, there's not much I can do here anyway, and my grandma's gonna be expecting us.

Melanie: Right, well, no, there's not.

Chelsea: Sasha, could you do me a favor and when Philip finally gets out of there, just tell him that I headed to the hospital without him? And I'll tell my grandmother what happened, and we'll hopefully see him there.

Sasha: Yes.

Chelsea: Thank you very much.

Melanie: I can't believe Philip and Stephanie are in there alone.

Sasha: Oh, they're not alone. They're together.

Melanie: Shut up, Sasha.

Sasha: [Laughs]

Stephanie: I can't believe this. There's no way we're gonna have that presentation in time.

Philip: Then it will be late.

Stephanie: I just really, really wanted to make a good impression.

Philip: On who, the C.E.O.? You've made an impression, all right.

Stephanie: I told you this was an accident.

Philip: Freud would say there's no such thing as accidents.

Stephanie: Are you implying that I did this on purpose? I think I liked it better when you thought I was careless.

Philip: Don't get defensive.

Stephanie: How can I not? You think I want to be trapped in here with you?

Philip: No, of course not.

Stephanie: You do. You're enjoying this!

Marlena: So, John has agreed to continue therapy with Dr. Taylor. I guess that's a good thing.

Kayla: Well, of course it is.

Marlena: What if the problem is physiological? What if it can't be treated with therapy?

Kayla: Well, then Dr. Taylor will recommend him to a neurologist, and he will get the help he needs.

Marlena: You know, one of the reasons John didn't want to go into therapy was because he was convinced it just wouldn't work for him.

Kayla: But you don't believe that.

Marlena: Well, I-I just -- I just wonder if she's up to it.

Kayla: You don't like her very much, do you?

Marlena: It's not that. It's -- uh, well, I can't --

Kayla: What?

Marlena: I don't know. Maybe you're right. Maybe I want to help him myself, and I'm just so frustrated that I can't. And it isn't about Dr. Taylor. It really is all about me.

Charlotte: What changed your mind, John?

John: It wasn't anything that you did. Like I said the session was fine. It's just that I'm...

Charlotte: What?

John: Never thought I would admit this to anybody. I'm afraid.

Charlotte: Afraid of what?

John: That it might work too well.

Charlotte: What do you mean, that you think you might get your old life back?

John: The guy I used to be sounds like he was... kind of a jerk.

Charlotte: How would you know that? A lot of people liked you.

John: Perhaps. But the only person I care about is Blondie.

Charlotte: Marlena.

John: I'd like to have her in my life again. And not because of what we used to have. I don't care if I remember that. It's just -- I'd like to have her around me.

Charlotte: Well, I think it's natural to not want to put your heart out there.

John: She's the reason that I'm in therapy. I'm doing this for her. So, what do you think, Dr. Taylor? Can you help me?

Charlotte: I will do my very best.

Lucas: Hello. Did someone ring?

Kate: Hey.

Chloe: Hi.

Kate: I just wanted to see you before the surgery and thank you and wish you well. And make absolutely certain --

Chloe: I know what you're going to say, and the answer is, yes, I'm positive I want to do this, preferably as soon as possible before anyone asks me again.

Kate: Okay. I guess it must seem like a little overkill, but, um, Lucas was saying that you felt nervous.

Chloe: No.

Lucas: You know, it's perfectly normal if you are, Chloe.

Chloe: I know, but I'm fine. If I seem a little moody, it has nothing to do with you or the surgery. I promise. It's just me. I'm a moody person.

Kate: Chloe.

Chloe: Come on, let's put this to bed now.

Kate: If you insist.

Chloe: I do.

Kate: Godspeed.

Chloe: You too. And you know what they say. Once you have your bone-marrow transplant, it's like you have a new birthday. So, this is the first day of the rest of your life.

Kate: I'm looking forward to that.

Chloe: Me too.

Lucas: I love you so much. I'll be back, all right? Come on.

Philip: Relax. I'm just messing with you.

Stephanie: Why?

Philip: Oh, well, I have to do something to pass the time.

Stephanie: Well, do something else because I am coming out of an intense relationship. And I admit -- I'm a little raw. And I don't need you pushing my buttons.

Philip: I can't help myself. Pushing buttons is what a Kiriakis does best.

Stephanie: What does a Kiriakis do when he misses a board meeting?

Philip: Reschedule.

Stephanie: Does he tell the board why?

Philip: Well, once they hear I was locked in the vault with a beautiful woman --

Stephanie: Beautiful?

Philip: You know you're beautiful.

Stephanie: I do?

Philip: Yeah, you do.

Stephanie: Do you?

Philip: Mm-hmm.

Stephanie: I'm confused. What was the initial question? You're right. It's -- it's really hot in here.

Philip: Very.

[Door opens]

Melanie: [Clears throat]

Philip: [Clears throat]

Nicole: I found this on the internet. And like I said on the phone, it's the answer to my prayers.

Melanie: She is making a major play for Philip, and she's already gained significant yardage.

Max: Oh, God.

Philip: What would have happened if that door hadn't opened?

Stephanie: Well, now we'll never know, will we?
