Bo: We put somethin' together, I think you're gonna like it.
Hope: Wait a second, you two planned this, didn't you?
Bo: Yeah, yes, we did, and you're gonna love what's in this box, so go ahead, open it up.
Hope: Here, goes with your outfit.
Bo: Yeah, thank you.
Hope: Oh, my god. Seriously? [Lip smack] Oh. [Sniffles]
EJ: [Breathes hard] Oh! Ugh, I despise running.
EJ: Oh, maybe I could pay somebody to do that for me.
Stefano: No, no, no. No, no, Elvis, look, an earl y morning run through the streets of Salem, [Laughs] Ho, ho, makes you look like, um, you know, you are accessible, like, uh, like a regular guy.
EJ: [Sighs] Oh, you know what else I despise? All those cheery good mornings. I mean, really, one shouldn't have to speak, let alone smile before coffee.
Stefano: [Laughs] Look, if you want to change your image, you know, you have to make a few sacrifices, you know.
EJ: You now you can't run more than six bloody feet without overhearing somebody talk about that party Bo and hope are throwing.
Stefano: Oh, no, it's wonderful. That's really great, I mean, think of the irony.
EJ: Father, how can a party to celebrate the renovation of the town square possibly be ironic? I mean, please, the whole thing is so wholesome as to be absolutely nauseating.
Stefano: Ah, but you see, it's ironic because Bo and hope, who both despise you, right? They are the ones that are giving this party that you are gonna make your big statement in, right?
Stefano: And Salem will never be the same again.
Is there anything else I can do for you, sir?
No, I'm good.
Thank you, sir. So have you been to Salem before?
Yeah, used to live here.
Really? So how long will you be staying?
This time... I'm staying for good.
Jennifer: Hey, I'm done.
[Laughing] I'm finished. I feel like we've been walking for miles.
Maggie: Oh, I think I could walk another mile without any trouble.
Jennifer: No, you hush. You are not gonna push yourself.
Jennifer: Sit, right now, as a matter of fact.
Maggie: Oh, you know what? I, um, I don't want to have a relapse before the big party.
Jennifer: No, you can't, because you are the dancer in our family, so when that music starts, you are out there cutting up the rug.
Maggie: Oh. Do you have any idea what kind of music there's gonna be?
Jennifer: No, I don't.
Maggie: How 'bout the food, any idea?
Jennifer: I will tell you everything that I know about the details of this party.
Jennifer: That's it, I just told you everything I know about the details of this party.
Jennifer: [Laughing] Aunt Maggie.
Maggie: Oh, hope is really playing this close to the vest, right?
Jennifer: Yes, it's ridiculous, she is driving me crazy, and she'll slip, and she'll say there's these little surprises in store, and then that's it. She just shuts up like a clam.
Maggie: And I should've known that she had something up her sleeve.
Jennifer: Oh, yes.
Maggie: Yes. So shall we go back to your place and have some tea?
Jennifer: Um, would you mind if we waited just a few more minutes?
Maggie: No, of course not. Why?
Jennifer: Because Bo and I have a little surprise of our own.
Maggie: For hope?
Jennifer: And if I am correct, it's going down right now.
Hope: Oh, my god. Where did you find all this stuff?
Bo: Well, Jen and I went through a bunch of dusty boxes. We wanted to collect stuff that represented who they are to us, what they mean to us. We could set up a table at the party, so that we could share this with everybody.
Hope: I think I'm gonna start to cry.
Bo: [Chuckles] Hold that, uh, before you-- why don't you go sit down, we'll move over here, go through all of this. [Grunts] Sit down. And yes, you will need these.
Hope: I'll start now. Thank you for doing this.
Bo: Well... I didn't want you to have to go through all this stuff, surrounded by people.
Hope: You're right, I do want to share it all, but I want to go through it alone... with you first.
Bo: When I started looking at it, uh, I thought about, um, the person I was before I met them.
Hope: I always loved how much you loved them. Thank you. Thank you for this.
EJ: So what are you working on now?
Stefano: [Sighing] Uh, I am rethinking the Sicilian wing gambit.
EJ: You woke up this morning, [Clears throat] Rethinking the Sicilian wing gambit.
Stefano: No, no, no. [Laughs] I woke up thinking about you. Yes, and thinking about your plans for the future, which are, by the way, very Sicilian. You know, very strong, audacious, you know, and a real surprise in the timing.
EJ: I learned from the best.
Stefano: Did you? You know, but in the past your, uh, I don't know, your ambition and your potential never seemed to have been on the same level together.
EJ: Father, I can assure you that my focus is quite single-minded, thank you.
Stefano: No, no, so it seems, all right? That's what you always told me, but how can I be sure that you are not gonna be distracted by the next skinny, little Nicole who comes by?
EJ: You always taught me, treat somebody with respect, and they will rise to the challenge.
EJ: Try living by those words, father.
Stefano: Right, but I also taught you that you have to earn respect.
EJ: And I fully intend on earning it.
EJ: Father, look, you always taught me, stay two to four moves ahead of your opponent.
Stefano: Right, and in this next venture of yours, okay, you're gonna have a lot of opponents, plural.
EJ: Okay, but nothing I can't handle, father. All right? Life is full of enemies.
Stefano: Yes, but it's up-- see, it's not the enemies that I'm worried about with you. [Sighs] You are going to alienate a lot of people, Elvis, and some of these people are gonna be people that, I mean, that you really care for. Are you up for that?
Hope: It was so sweet of Nathan to let us use grandpa's medical bag for the party.
Bo: Yeah, he said he was sorry he couldn't make it.
Hope: Yeah, I'm really sorry he couldn't make it, too, but you know who would've understood?
Hope: You know, when I think of how many dinners and parties grandpa missed because he was at the hospital, but you know what? Come to think of it, he never missed one of my skating competitions.
Hope: He always seemed to be there for the really important things. Or, of course, come to think of it, um, to meet a skinny, little granddaughter at seven in the morning with hot chocolate after she finished her skating practice.
Bo: Hot chocolate?
Hope: Mmm, hot chocolate and one of Gran's doughnuts,
Both: Mmm, mmm, mm.
Hope: Nothing, nothing like it.
Bo: They were a great team.
Hope: Yeah, they were. They built this family together. They built that hospital together.
Bo: Yeah, and through it all, never really took themselves too seriously.
Hope: [Laughs] You have to love a woman who can make doughnuts and do an amazing Groucho.
Bo: [Laughing] Oh, yeah.
Alice: That's what you win, is a prize duck.
Tom: Well, I'm not quite so hungry for a duck, maybe I'll take a pizza.
[Slide whistle, horn, and drum roll]
Clown: [Honks horn]
Alice: You just said the secret "woid," pizza.
[Slide whistle and drum roll]
Clown: [Honks horn]
Alice: Oh, the ducks!
[Wood block knock sounds]
Tom: Uh, [Laughs]
Alice: Ah, ha, ha, ha.
Hope: [Laughs] Gran always loved having something up her sleeve, especially when it came to grandpa.
Bo: And vice-versa. Remember when he was that secret poet...
Bo: Norm deplume, yeah.
Hope: Norm...deplume, deplume, oh, my gosh, she did not like him keeping that secret from her.
Hope: But he got out of it.
Hope: She finally went to one of his readings, and, uh, he read a poem about her. It was so beautiful, all was forgiven. You know, I really wish I had a copy of that poem.
Bo: Hmm. I wonder if it might be in here some place.
Hope: Uh, are you kidding me, you have it?
Bo: Yeah, of course. Here you go.
Hope: Let me see that. "Dear Alice..." they didn't always agree on everything.
Bo: They were married. You can't. You don't.
Hope: But they always loved and supported each other, no matter what.
Hope: All they ever wanted to do was give each other the world. That's what true love is really all about. They loved each other so much, Brady. As much as I love you. Mmm. I wonder how many of these Gran won for her doughnuts. Now that's a necklace, huh?
Bo: Oh, yeah, we found two, three boxes of these ribbons and trophies. I'm trying to convince Jen to make doughnuts for the party.
Hope: Hey, that would be great.
Bo: Remember when Mrs. "H" put just enough poison in the batter, made roman sick enough, he had to be transferred from the jail...
Hope: Where he could escape.
Bo: ...To the hospital, right.
Hope: [Laughing] Oh, my gosh, yes.
Bo: She was so sweet, looked so sweet, but she was a master at bustin' people outta jail. [Laughs]
Alice: Are you all right?
Bo: Yeah, yeah, I'm gonna be okay.
Alice: Oh, my word, you need a haircut.
Bo: [Laughing] Yeah, right. What took you so long to get here, huh?
Alice: I couldn't find the keys to your motorcycle, I had to come in my own car.
Bo: I knew I could count on you.
Alice: Always. Remember that, huh?
Bo: You bet I will.
Alice: Now, we have a plan.
Alice: It--oh, I forgot to tell you, I brought reinforcements.
Bo: That woman was fearless.
Hope: That she was, and I miss her, every...single...day.
Bo: Me, too. Lucky for me, you inherited that fearlessness.
Hope: Hmm. Oh, I don't know about that.
Bo: Well, I do. You had to be rather fearless to take on a tough guy like me.
Hope: [Laughs] Seriously, come on. There was nothing to be scared of.
Hope: You were putty in my hands.
Bo: Oh, yeah, that's why you kept pushin' me away, tellin' me off.
Hope: Oh, come on, Brady. That was just to throw you off.
Hope: So you wouldn't see how crazy I was about you.
Bo: Oh, yeah.
Hope: Although, come to think of it, you might have had a hint when I climbed on the back of your motorcycle.
Bo: Yeah, that did surprise me a bit. That was quite a risk you took.
Hope: And I never regretted it... not for a second.
Hope: I have never, ever looked back.
Bo: Good. So sweet and pretty... and always up for an adventure.
Hope: But why did you have to be so mean to me?
Bo: Come on.
Hope: Where are we going?
Bo: We're going someplace where we can talk.
Hope: I might've rethought that particular move, had I known how incredibly boring our life together was going to be.
Bo: Yeah, another dull, suburban couple.
Bo: Chasin' down Orpheus...
Bo: ...On the streets of Stockholm...
Hope: Oh, and that plane crash where we almost died. Ho hum.
Bo: Playin' Swiss family Robinson on a deserted, tropical island, rather dull... but you know what?
Bo: That might've been pretty exciting, but what's even better is a night home alone with you and Ciara.
Hope: You're just saying that.
Hope: 'Cause it's true.
Bo: Yeah, it is. But I got this feeling, fancy-face, that the adventures are not over, they're only just beginning.
Hope: Let me ask you something, how old do you think Ciara needs to be before we start sharing all these wonderful stories with her?
Bo: Oh, that would depend on the story.
Hope: Yeah, of course, but--hey, how about the one when we were in new Orleans, and Gran stole the bus to get us away from Larry Welch's guys.
Bo: Yeah, I think we could do that, as long as we're not glamorizing stealing buses, but, [Sighs], Tellin' her how her great-grandmother would do just about anything to save the people she loved.
[Laughing] Oh, my, yikes.
Bo: Our wedding.
Hope: In England. That... was one spectacular day.
Hope: I remember Gran giving me a pair of my mother's diamond earrings right before the ceremony. They and Gran made me feel that she was with us that day.
Bo: Yeah. Mrs. "H" was always there for us, especially when things got rough. When, um...
Hope: You thought I had died?
Bo: [Sighs] Yeah. Don't like to think about that time, but she was there, she got me through it.
Hope: She loved you so much, Brady.
Bo: Yeah. She did. Never understood why, but--
Hope: I think she saw you as a kindred spirit. She didn't look like it, but she was a rebel...
Bo: [Laughs] Through and through, I mean, no one told her what to do or what to say.
Bo: Oh, no, no, didn't want to go there.
Hope: [Laughing] No. And you know what she always said to me?
Hope: Hope, dear, always be honest with that boy... and if I follow my heart, love wins in the end.
Bo: Yeah. She was right. [Sighs] She was always right.
Bo: [Lip smack] I'm their number one fan.
Alice: I'm just so happy for you that this day has finally come.
Bo: You always knew it would, didn't you?
Alice: Of course I did.
Alice: A love like yours and hope's is too rare, too wonderful.
Bo: You never gave up on us, did you?
Alice: Of course not. [Laughs]
Bo: I promise you something, I promise to do my very best to make your granddaughter happy.
Alice: I know that hope loves you with all her heart.
Bo: And just so you know, I intend to keep that promise. Come here.
EJ: I'm aware that there is going to be some initial unpleasantness.
Stefano: Oh, that's an understatement.
EJ: But I think that everything is going to work out in the long run.
Stefano: We'll see.
EJ: The risk is worth it, father. Remember, I'm doing this for Johnny and for Sydney.
Stefano: Oh, sure. [Laughs] The way you gave over custody to Samantha. You didn't even discuss that with me, you didn't even seem to care how I felt, that you were ripping these children away from me.
EJ: They're my children... and they deserve a name they can be proud of, father.
Stefano: I am very proud of the DiMera name.
EJ: As am I, [Sighs] But when Johnny comes back from school, and he tells me that the children are afraid of vampires, werewolves, and DiMeras, it's clear something needs to be done.
Stefano: And now you're doing it.
EJ: I am.
Stefano: Let me ask you something. [Clears throat]
EJ: [Clears throat]
Stefano: What if this does not turn out the way you want it to, what then?
EJ: You're just going to have to trust me.
Stefano: [Laughs] Ah, Elvis, what you ask of me. You know, after all you've said and done.
EJ: After all that you... have said...and done... I need to trust that you are going to let me handle this. Or get in my way, go over my head, or behind my back, not for my sake, for the family.... for Sydney... for Johnny... for all of us.
Bo: Somebody's here.
Hope: Who's that?
Jennifer: I knew that was-- both: [Laugh and squeal]
Hope: Oh, my darling Jennifer, thank you so much.
Jennifer: Did you love it?
Hope: Are you kidding me? I love it.
Jennifer: She loves it.
Hope: And you, we were just talking about you playing second banana to Gran--
Maggie: Oh! [Laughs] Wait a minute, second banana, I thought I was headlining.
Hope: Yeah, you were headlining, she was headlining.
Maggie: Oh, Jennifer was telling me, coming over in the car, that--that you're gonna display all of this at the party.
Jennifer: Yeah, I mean, we just--we wanted people to see doctor and Mrs. "H" as people, you know, and not just the benefactors who put all the money into this town square.
Maggie: Oh, I just can't wait for the party.
Maggie: The new square, all decorated, full of people, oh, my goodness. You know, it was so sad, seeing it go downhill. I mean, all the little businesses going under, and the gardens going to weeds, and isn't it just perfect that it's your grandparents...
Maggie: ...That are bringing it back to life? They felt this was the heart of Salem.
Bo: And it will be again.
Maggie: Yes. [Giggles]
Maggie: And I can see them, sitting on that bench, having their lunch, holding hands, like teenagers.
Jennifer: I know, I know, that was Gran's favorite place in Salem, was town square.
Maggie: Mmm. It used to be wonderful. It's where everybody came together. Um, I mean, old guys playing chess with the kids, families on picnics, the band--the bands--
Hope: The big bands, Gran used to tell me about it.
Maggie: And the ice cream parlor, and everything! [Laughter]
Jennifer: Listen, it's gonna be this way again, it is, because this restoration and this party, it is gonna be a rebirth for Salem.
Bo: Yeah, not only that, it's gonna be one heck of a party. [Laughter]
Hope: Oh, yes.
Maggie: I can't wait.
Jennifer: So we've heard. How are you planning on starting out with this party? Can we have one--
Maggie: Any news?
Hope: Oh, nice try. Don't be looking at my husband, he's not telling--no, I--Jen, you have to wait like everybody else.
Bo: Let me tell her something.
Jennifer: Yes, tell me one--
Bo: Just a little secret.
Hope: No, no, no, no, no!
Bo: All right, hold on, shh.
Bo: You're bringing the doughnuts.
Bo: [Laughs] [Laughter]
Maggie: Oh, you're so mean.
Jennifer: Of course I knew I'd bring the doughnuts.
Hope: Ciara is gonna help you. [Laughter]
Bo: Some pretty amazing stuff in there, huh?
Maggie: [Sniffs] Yeah.
Bo: There you go.
Maggie: [Sniffs] It's a note from one of the kids they took in.
Hope: They changed so many people's lives.
Maggie: [Sighs] The Horton center, it was so, so special. They gave so much, they--they just gave and gave, and then opened up their house. I mean, welcoming kids who didn't have a roof over their head, to share their home with them. Wow, that's giving.
Jennifer: Let me--let me read this one. "Dear doctor 'h,' thanks for reading the Christmas story to us. I get to go home tomorrow."
Hope: Oh, my gosh.
Maggie: You know, they'll always mean Christmas to me.
Maggie: [Sobbing] I'm sorry. Tom reading to all those kids, and getting them to laugh and smile.
Hope: The look on Gran's face, watching as he read.
Maggie: [Laughs, crying]
Bo: Oh, my goodness.
Bo: Good thing we're going through this early, you guys would be sobbin' through the whole party.
Hope: I'm sorry, but you know what, we may look like we're crying, but these are happy tears, 'cause we are certainly not sad.
Hope: This party, sharing their lives, reopening the town square... it makes their lives live on forever, their dreams, their--
Hope: And their hopes. [Laughs and sniffles] Is my mascara running? [Laughter]
Maggie: Oh, we've got to stop this. [Laughs]
Hope: Oh, dear. Love you, cuz.
Maggie: Oh, my, my.
Stefano: That, uh, little dance last night with Nicole, what the hell was that all about?
EJ: It's nothing, father, I was just having a little bit of fun with her.
Stefano: [Chuckles] You can't use the words, uh, "Nicole" and "fun" in the same sentence without some negative thing in there.
EJ: Ah, why don't you, uh, tell me how you really feel, father. Let's see, uh--
Stefano: [Clears throat]
EJ: [Tongue click]
Stefano: [Chuckles] Ah, you know, you keep telling me how, uh, you're getting your life back on track...
Stefano: And I want to believe you, Elvis... but when you do something like this, I mean, you know, I don't know if I can trust the fact that your, uh, common sense is back in order.
EJ: Father, I already told you that--
Stefano: No, no, look, don't misunderstand, okay? Please, because I love-a the bombshell that you are gonna drop at the Brady party, okay? I mean, I think the plan is working out fine... but I do have some very deep concerns, you know.
EJ: I know what I'm doing.
Stefano: Well, if you screw this up, I mean, and you refuse to discuss it with me,
[Chuckles], And you hurt the name that I have worked so hard for, then there is only one thing I can say to you. Woe unto you, Elvis.
Yes, I wonder if you could tell me a little more about the little shindig you're having in the town square tomorrow.
Julie: Hello? Hello, anybody home?
Hope: Julie, oh!
Hope: Oh, my gosh, daddy, get over here!
Doug: Of course we made it, you mentioned a party, we're not gonna miss a party.
Julie: Has she been driving you crazy, too, talking about the big surprise, the surprise, the surprise, and then clamming up?
Jennifer: Do you hear this? Yes, tell me about it, she's driving me crazy.
Doug: Yes, and she said something about very special surprises, now, uh, does that mean anything to you?
Maggie: Not a clue, Doug, hope should've worked for the C.I.A. [Laughter] She hasn't left a leak out at all. [Laughter]
Julie: But what is all of this?
Hope: Jennifer and Bo collected all sorts of treasures of Gran and grandpa's, and we're gonna display them at the party.
Jennifer: Yeah, I'm also gonna bring this scrapbook that I made last year for gram, when, um-- you know, when--
Doug: It's hard to believe it's over a year already since Alice left us.
Jennifer: Yeah. Yeah, it's crazy, huh? Just kinda sneaks up on you.
Doug: Yeah, but at her funeral, all I could think about was something she said when Addie passed away.
Alice: I prayed that god would give her this one wish, and if he would, I wouldn't ask for anything more.
Doug: You can accept that?
Alice: Yes, [Sighs] Yes, I can accept that, because death is a-- well, it's a--it's a transition, dear. Life never ends, you know that.
Doug: And she was right. Their lives didn't end, they live on, in our hearts, in our memories. Hmm. So, you guys grew up together.
Maggie: Alice always treated me more like a daughter than a daughter-in-law. She taught me so many things about facing life, and living it to the fullest, and-- and facing it, just straight on. She had enough strength for the two of us.
[Echoing] Well, what if it's, uh, one of those diseases that they don't know too much about, and that there's no cure?
Alice: Oh, Maggie, darling, I doubt that very much, but if it is, you'll find out, and you'll deal with it.
Maggie: I don't know if I can.
Alice: Oh, of course you can.
Maggie: [Chuckles] She was right, of course.
Jennifer: Wow, I am so grateful that Abigail and I get to live here. I feel so close to gram and grandpa being here.
Julie: Well, I think it's wonderful that there are still Hortons living in our family home, and may that always be true.
Stefano: What are you doing?
EJ: Times have changed. The world moves at a lightning speed, father. Nobody has time to sit, ponder a move for hours. The old ways, your ways, were very effective, once upon a time, but this is a new era. This is my time. I am your heir apparent, but I am not you, and I will no longer allow you to stand in my way.
Stefano: [Lip smack] Your life is my life, my family, my future. Can your thick skull understand that?
EJ: I need to make my own future... and if you don't understand that, then we have nothing left to discuss. The time has come. You wither stand beside me, or you stand aside.
Julie: Weren't they a gorgeous couple? [Laughs] One thing about grandma and grandpa, they understood the meaning of romance.
Hope: I don't think there'll ever be another romance like theirs again. Not in our lifetime, anyway.
Maggie: Oh, I don't know. I think you and Bo come pretty close in my book. [Laughter]
Bo: Yeah, we aren't too shabby, are we?
Stefano: [Sighs] It's yours.
EJ: I didn't win.
Stefano: Take it. You've won enough. You know, and you stood up for what you believed in. [Chuckles] You even stood up to me. God speed, my son... and god help whoever stands in your way.
Doug: ...And tom said, "of course I have, but never with a daffodil. [Laughter]
Hope: What? [Laughter] What does that mean?
Hope: Oh, my gosh! [Laughter]
Doug: I love those old stories.
Julie: Yeah, I do, too, and it's a good thing. I hear them so often.
Julie: So hope, sweetie-pie, darling, can you tell us a little crumb? I mean, if you're not gonna tell us who's invited to the party, and you're not gonna tell us what's gonna happen at the party...
Julie: ...Can you tell us something?
Jennifer: Yes, something, anything. Please, cloth, paper napkins, anything?
Hope: Cloth and paper napkins.
Jennifer: Oh, come on.
Hope: All right, all right. In--okay, I will--
Hope: Okay. We'll tell you one thing.
Hope: [Laughs] It's gonna be a night to remember.
Jennifer: You--that's it? [Laughter]
[Hope drum rolls on the table]
Well, ms. Horton, looks like I know where I'm gonna be able to find you tomorrow.
Doug: Nothing like a trip down memory lane to excite the appetite.
Julie: Oh, Doug, your appetite is always excited.
Jennifer: Well, where should we go? There are so many choices.
Doug: Yes, where should we go, uh, hospital cafeteria? Uh, more memories, more stories.
Maggie: Terrible food.
Hope: See you later.
Bo: [Rim shot] Ba-dum-bum.
Doug: [Laughing] Okay.
Bo: Something wrong?
Hope: No. No, it's just-- I don't know, Gran and grandpa left us with so many wonderful memories, and wonderful advice, but--
Bo: But what?
Hope: I don't know. I feel like there's something more.
Bo: Like what?
Hope: I don't know. I don't know, it's just-- I can almost hear Gran whisper in my ear, "there's more, hope." It's here, it's close. I just-- I don't know what it could be.
Bo: If she's trying to tell you something, show you something, it'll be soon. Mrs. "H" will see to that. So come one, let's go.
Hope: All right, I'll drive.
Hope: You got a ticket last week.
Bo: Well, I could get out of it.
Hope: Yeah, you could get out of it.
Hope: I have contacted some people, and some of them are gonna be there today.
Jennifer: Like who?
Sami: It's Carrie and Austin!
Hope: They're here!
