[Soft music]

Sarah: I've tried so hard to fight this... my feelings for you, but... it's impossible.

Eric: Sarah... I can't do this.

Sarah: Why?

Eric: I promised god that if he let my mother live, I swore I would never pursue this or whatever there is happening between us. I can't hurt rex.

Rex: It's too late for that.

Claire: Hey.

Tripp: Hey.

Claire: Hi. Thought you were working this shift.

Tripp: No, it's slow, so fran asked if anybody wanted to take off early, and I'm in a crap mood, so I volunteered.

Claire: Oh, no. What's wrong?

Tripp: Well, jack was just here, and he actually tried to apologize.

Claire: Well, that's good, right?

Tripp: No. No, it's not, okay? He's a liar and a fake, and all he cares about is wanting to be the next mayor of salem, and he'll do anything to win, including destroy a person's life.

Claire: Ah, you mean haley'S.

Tripp: I will never forgive him for what he did to her. I mean, haley is a good person. Haley is a great nurse, and haley--

Claire: Haley, haley, haley! Oh, my god, tripp, I'm starting to think you're obsessed with her!

Haley: My life here is-- it's over! I'm going back to china. Oh, my god, I'm going back to china.

Jj: You don't have to do that.

Haley: What are you talking about, jj? Of course I do, they're-- I'm getting deported. The judge just ordered it.

Jj: Marry me. Look, I-I know...that this is coming out of nowhere, but I... I honestly think it's the best option. Maybe the only option. So what do you think?

Haley: I think you lost your damn mind.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."

[Soft orchestration]

Rex: You unbelievable son of a bitch!

Eric: Rex-- rex--

Rex: Brady was right, man. You're a liar and a traitor.

Sarah: Rex, stop it!

Rex: Why? He deserves it.

Eric: [Softly] Yeah, you're right, I do. Oof!

Rex: Get up. Eric, yo, bro, wake up. You okay?

Eric: [Groans] I fall asleep?

Rex: Yeah. Look, it's understandable. You've been...wiped out because of what happened to your mom.

Eric: Yeah. Thank god she's okay.

Rex: Yeah. Yeah, I'm happy about marlena too. That was not a happy dream you were having, man. It was a nightmare.

Eric: Really?

Rex: Yeah. What was it about?

Maggie: You should be drinking champagne. I understand that you and kayla saved marlena's life.

Sarah: It was...nothing short of a miracle. You know, marlena had so many people pulling for her. John never left her side, of course and, you know, eric... was praying for her so much--

[Crystal clatters]

Maggie: Oh, wait, whoa, whoa. Honey...you seem very tense.

Sarah: Yeah. It was just really stressful at the hospital today.

Maggie: You're a wonderful doctor. You're very cool under pressure. So I'm guessing it'S...not so much professional as personal.

[Sighs] Maybe...it's about eric?

Sarah: I just kept thinking that, like, what if we had to tell him that we lost another person that he loved?

Maggie: Yeah, but it didn't happen. It turned out okay.

Sarah: Yeah.

Maggie: Mm-hmm.

Sarah: Thank god.

[Sniffles] As soon as marlena pulled through, I-I rushed down to the chapel to tell eric. I will never forget the look on his face when we said that his mom had come back to us, you know, his...his smile. What?

Maggie: You really have it bad for eric, don't you? Ohh. Sweetheart... I know this is delicate, but maybe...maybe it's time. Maybe you should finally just tell him how you feel.

Sarah: I did. And it was a disaster.

Tripp: I'm not obsessed with haley, okay, but I do feel bad for the situation she's in.

Claire: Right. Sorry. I, uh, didn't mean to snap at you like that.

Tripp: You know that haley and I are just friends, right? I'm just very concerned about her.

Claire: Yeah, I know. So am I. I really do care about her, and it sucks that someone turned her in.

Tripp: Yeah, and I know who did it.

Claire: Really? Wait--who?

Tripp: Mrs. Carney. Just like you said.

Claire: Oh, wow.

[Scoffs] Well... at least the mystery's solved.

Tripp: Yeah, I know. I hate what happened, but it's good to know who's responsible.

Claire: Yeah. You know, for--for a little while there, kinda seemed like you thought it was me.

Tripp: Well, only three people knew that haley was staying with us, so...

Claire: Yeah, and I'm always the one doing these stupid things out of jealousy, so I get why you would suspect me. I do. But, tripp...look, when we promised each other no more lies and no more secrets, I meant it.

Tripp: So did I.

Claire: Then I hope you know that I would never, ever betray your trust like that.

Tripp: I do. Um...I'm sorry that I ever doubted you.

Jj: I know--I know that it sounds crazy, but marrying me would keep you in this country for sure.

Haley: What are you talking about, jj? Ice would be on us in a hot minute--you know that!

Jj: Not--not necessarily.

Haley: Jj, we've been all over the news. Everybody knows our deal. We're not engaged. We're not even dating and right now, if anything, I'm just the undocumented chinese woman who was staying at your place because my sister disowned me. You know, you could get arrested...thrown into jail for fraud.

Jj: Not if it's a real marriage. Which it could be, someday. So there you are with your depression

Hope: More than 100 bullet holes in the dimera mansion. El fideo's crew are even more vicious now that he's dead.

Ted: Wow. How's ciara?

Hope: Shaken. You know, just thank god that she got out of there unharmed.

Ted: We'll find the person responsible.

Hope: Damn straight, we will. So what else do you have for me?

Ted: Well... leo starke submitted all his paperwork. The charges against will and sonny are officially dismissed.

Hope: Good. Finally. And ted, there won't be any more conflict of interest issues. Got it?

Ted: Well, you have my guilt for torturing two people you care about.

Hope: Just do what you set out to do--fight for the good guy and put the bad ones away.

Ted: Hope, I'm trying. Trying to turn my life around to be...to be a better person, to make up for all my... I won't call them mistakes, 'cause they were not mistakes. They were choices, and they were the wrong one. And it took meeting a woman like you to make me see it.

Hope: Thank you.

Ted: Well, it's true. And I'd very much like to keep working with you... to prove to you that I'm worthy. Worthy to keep this job permanent, and with some luck, and your support, I believe i can succeed.

Hope: I believe we make our own luck. But you do have my support.

Ted: Thank you.

Tripp: Hey, did you ever find out if your mom had any legal advice for haley?

Claire: Yes. You know, she's super busy with a case right now, so until she digs out, I am going to do everything I can to help.

Tripp: Like what?

Claire: Well, for starters, a social media campaign. I have hundreds of thousands of followers, so I'm gonna tell them all what a great person haley is, I'm gonna get all of them on her side. I was thinking we could also do a fundraiser, like a mini concert type thing. I was thinking that I could write a song about what haley's going through.

Tripp: Wow, claire, that would be amazing. You-- you are the best girlfriend ever.

Claire: Ah. Wow, it's amazing to hear you call me that.

Tripp: Yeah, well, why wouldn't I? That's what you are.

Haley: A real marriage.

[Scoffs] Y-you can't be serious.

Jj: I don't mean right away, but...we could get there.

Haley: Jj, I-- I don't want you marrying me out of guilt.

Jj: Haley, it'S...it's more than that. You must know by now that I-- I... have feelings for you. (Announcer) do you push through migraine?

Maggie: What happened with eric?

Sarah: [Sighs] Well, um... before marlena woke up, I found him in the hospital chapel... praying.

Maggie: Mm-hmm.

Sarah: He asked me to stay, and we started talking and opening up to each other about love and faith. And I just felt--I felt so close to him, so... I kissed him.

Maggie: Ah. Just like that, impulsively.

Sarah: Well, do I do anything any other way?

Maggie: Oh...okay! Then, having done that, how did he react?

Sarah: We didn't get a chance to talk about it right away, because...brady walked in.

Maggie: Oh...dear.

Sarah: So you can imagine how comfortable that was, given the whole eric and nicole thing. Oh, and it gets better. Because right after brady walked in, rex walks in.

Maggie: Did brady tell rex about the kiss?

Sarah: Thought that he would, but he didn'T.

Maggie: [Exhales]

Sarah: And when eric and i finally got a chance to be alone and talk for a second, we decided that we wouldn't tell rex because... eric doesn't feel the same way about me as I do him.

Maggie: You asked him?

Sarah: Point blank. I told him that I had feelings for him--which was obvious at that point. And...he told me that I was a really great...friend.

Maggie: Oh. Honey...I'm sorry.

Sarah: I feel so stupid. And not just because I made such an ass out of myself by kissing eric but because I thought that he wanted that. And of course it's not what he wants. He's still mourning nicole. And I knew that, but I just sped right past it like I always do.

Maggie: [Clears throat] Well, because of this and your scare with marlena... I think you could use a little escape.

[Both laugh] How 'bout mom treating you to a spa day tomorrow? Massages, manicures? Yes, definitely manicures.

[Both laughing] The whole nine.

Sarah: That's really sweet. But I'm fine, I really am. I just, um... I think the whole eric thing maybe was just a fixation, and i just have to accept that it's only platonic between us. At least on his side. And I need to move on. Focus on rex.

Maggie: We, uh, we've discussed this...

[Laughs] I mean, you shouldn't commit to a life with rex by default.

Sarah: I love him.

Maggie: Do you?!

Sarah: And he loves me. I-- I have to learn how to trust him again.

Maggie: Well, he has his work cut out for him, considering all that he's done.

Sarah: I can't exactly blame rex for cheating on me when I've just kissed his brother. Oh, my god.

[Sighs] Why do I always make such a mess of everything?

Maggie: Oh... honey, life.


Eric: I really don't remember the dream. It'S...it's kind of a blur.

Rex: Well, look, um, sorry for asking, but could you help me tidy up a bit? Sarah's coming over for dinner.


Eric: Yeah, sure. I can, uh, go for a run, give you guys some privacy.

Rex: Thank you. I really appreciate it. Eric, you really are a great brother. I'm sorry I ever doubted that. Look, um...I'm gonna talk to you about this. What brady said, that warning that he gave me... I admit that I let it...get to me. Not that I ever thought you would hurt me on purpose. It's just you and sarah are... you're very close, and--

Eric: Rex, I--

Rex: No, no, it's okay, really--I talked to sarah about it and I know--I believe that there is nothing romantic going on between the two of you. And why would there be? You're our biggest fan. You're rooting for us. And also talking to brady, he admitted that he was just lashing out because of what was going on with marlena and...he's trying to put the situation between you and him and nicole behind him. But it's tough.

Eric: Yeah, I get it.

Rex: Nicole was the love of your life. And sarah is the love of mine. So again, I'm sorry that I went there. I know you would never come between me and sarah.

Claire: So how would you like to take your girlfriend home for a date night?

Tripp: Look, I'd love to, but--

Claire: Look, I know you're really worried about haley but, you know, with everything she's going through, she probably just wants to chill by herself upstairs. So how 'bout I make her some food, then we can be alone.

Tripp: What about ciara?

Claire: She has a paper due, so she'll be at the library till late. So how 'bout this--I'll go to the store and I'll get everything I need to cook you a gourmet dinner.

Tripp: Sounds great.

[Beep beep]

Claire: What is it?

Tripp: The...the judge made a decision about haley. She has to leave the country within 30 days.

Claire: Oh, no. Oh, poor thing.

Jj: I've really missed you since you've been gone. It was nice just...having meals together, playing music and talking, and I-I actually felt like we were...we were really starting to connect before everything hit the fan.

Haley: But it did.

Jj: I know. And I wish so badly that we could just pick up where we left off and go slow and get to know each other, but right now, the clock is ticking. We have to jump right in and get married and--

Sarah: Okay, okay, um... even if I thought this was a good idea--which I don't-- there's still one huge reason i can't marry you, jj.

Jj: What's that?

Haley: You can't fix this. You can'T. You betrayed my confidence, and that'S...that's why I'm in this situation now. And yes, I've let it go. I've let it go because I'm tired of being angry. I don't wanna be angry anymore at you or anybody else. But... marrying you... no. No, I-I can'T. I won'T.

Ted: Hey, hope. I owe you an apology.

Hope: For what?

Ted: Well, your husband doesn't seem to like very much the fact that you are in my corner. And I'm sorry if I create any conflict. Have you two made peace yet?

Hope: Unfortunately, no, uh, we haven'T. Things are still a little--

Ted: You know, I know you have some issues with rafe's loyalty. I just want to say that I hope i didn't make anything worse.

Hope: Rafe and I will... we'll work through this.

Ted: Not tonight.

Hope: Uh...no. Not tonight.

Ted: Well, in that case, let me order dinner--like a real dinner. We can eat and work at the same time, right?

Hope: Something more nutritious than this?

[Both laugh]

Jj: I understand why you hold me responsible for the situation you're in. Hell, haley, look, I am responsible. But there aren't too many other ways to avoid getting deported. Like I said, I just... I want to do this for you. You know, why don'T... why don't you just come back to my place, there's no pressure, just to give you some alone time to think. And if you do end up saying yes, it might look good that you're staying with me again.

Haley: I-I can'T. I need to go back to the loft.

Jj: Aren't there a bunch of reporters camped out there?

Haley: There's a back entrance, so I-I can avoid them.

Jj: Okay, um...it's your call. Whatever decision you make tonight and going forward, I'll respect them, and I promise not to push. But haley, we're under the gun.

Haley: Okay.

Tripp: Straight to voice mail. Maybe haley turned off her phone to avoid the press.

Claire: Yeah. Or maybe she's meeting with her sister. She is a big-time lawyer.

Tripp: Yeah, and a big-time ice queen.

Claire: Well, yes, that is true, but her little sister's about to get deported. So I'd say it's possible that her heart melted just a little bit.

Tripp: Maybe you're right.

Claire: Look, since we can't reach haley, I'd say the best thing for us to do is just be at home, right, for if and when she decides to come back.

Tripp: Okay, yeah. I'll head there now.

Claire: Great. And I'll pick up something special for dinner, and I'll see you soon.

Tripp: All right.

Rafe: Can I have a minute alone with my wife?

Ted: Uh, certainly.

Rafe: Mm. Great. Hi.

Hope: Hi.

Rafe: I was hoping you could find time to have dinner with me tonight. I know obviously you're...busy. Uh... okay, look, uh...

[Laughs] Things haven't been great between us... but I wanna fix that. So I made plans for this evening and, uh... I'm hoping that you can join me.

Hope: I have a ton... work can wait. I'd love to have dinner with you.

Rafe: Great. All right.

Hope: Now?

Rafe: Now. Yeah. Yeah, it's uh...yes. Come on.

[Somber music]

Sarah: Hey.

Eric: Hey.

Sarah: Is rex here?

Eric: Um, he's taking the trash out, and I'm about to go for a run, so, uh... I'm gonna go get changed.

Sarah: I-- yeah. I spoke with kayla on the way over here, and your mom is doing so much better, but they're gonna keep her for another night.

Eric: I'm so glad to hear that. Thank you for everything you did to help her. I'M...gonna change.

Sarah: That's all right, um-- I'm sorry again for kissing you.

Eric: Sarah... you really don't have to apologize.

Sarah: No, I do, yes, I do. I just wanna, um...I wanna clear the air. I know that you think of me as only a friend. And, um...I-I just want you to know that I understand that, and I accept it. And I just don't want this horrible awkwardness that i created to ruin what was a good thing. I-I'm really embarrassed about what I did. I mean, it's like off the charts at how much I am embarrassed, and I really made a fool of my--

Eric: You really don't have to be embarrassed.

Sarah: You don't have to reassure me, eric. It stung at first, but I'm really glad that we were honest about our feelings. And knowing where you stand will help me with the illusions I had about us in my head, and now i can move forward with rex.

Eric: Sarah--

Sarah: And we both agree that he doesn't need to know... right?


Rex: Thought you were going for a run.

Eric: I am, and I am...gonna get out of your hair and go for a run, so...you guys can have a nice dinner.

Sarah: Mm-hmm.

Both: Hi.

[Soft music]

Andrew wanted nothing to do with his volcano demonstration.

Rafe: Roman closed early so we could have the place all to ourselves.

Hope: What's the occasion?

Rafe: Well... with all the craziness that's been going on and the tension, we seemed to have missed celebrating our one-year wedding anniversary. And I know...that some things happened that you may not necessarily wanted to celebrate. But I just wanted you to know that I didn't forget. I remembered. I just didn't bring it up on the day because... I didn't necessarily want you to have to go through that pain again.

Hope: Rafe... let's not look back, okay?

Rafe: Let's not. I thought about that too. I thought maybe we shouldn't even acknowledge our anniversary. Maybe we should just skip it or forget about it, but-- I don't want to do that. I don't want to do that because despite everything that's happened, marrying you was still the best day of my life.

Sarah: Thank you so much for doing all this.

Rex: My pleasure. And look, I hope you don't mind, but I didn't wanna run the risk of burning anything again, so... I ordered thai food.

Sarah: Shrimp soup? Extra spicy?

Rex: You know it, babe.

Sarah: I remember the first time you ever tried it.

Rex: Oh, my god! That, like, hole-in-the-wall place in wrigleyville.

Sarah: Mm-hmm. Your face was so red.

Rex: It was insanely spicy. My mouth was on fire.

[Both laugh] Oh, um, I downloaded some really cool music. I was hoping that, I don't know, we could... dance while we wait?

Come a little closer

Sarah: That's nice.

Lose yourself...

Rex: It feels like old times.

In me

Tripp: Hey, I've been trying to reach you. I'm sorry to hear about the news. Are you okay?

Haley: Um, I was just thinking about what to do, and there's this one option. It's really crazy, but it just might get me out of this mess I'm in.

Tripp: What are you talking about?

Haley: Jj asked me to marry him. (Nora) before we start - how much is my tax prep going to cost?

Sarah: No, no--

Rex: Yes. This is it.

Sarah: No, it's not!

Rex: I know it--

Sarah: No, it's heart, hands, then steering wheel.

Rex: That's what I was doing!

Sarah: I don't know what you were doing!

Rex: No, I was like, yeah--

Sarah: Oh, watch, okay. You do the heart hands first.

Rex: Okay.

Sarah: You gotta do, like, heart hands and then steering wheel. But if you wanna start it, then you do the-- oh!

Rex: Oh! Oh, jeez, sarah, oh, my god! Are you okay? You're like a ton of bricks, babe.

[Both laughing]

Eric: What happened? I heard a crash.

Rex: That was the sound of sarah's butt hitting the floor.

Sarah: Shut up!

Eric: Are you okay?

Sarah: I'm fine.

Rex: Put your arm around me.

Sarah: I'm just a spaz. I think I might have twisted my ankle.

Rex: Here, have a seat. Put your foot up here. And on a pillow. Let me look at that. Yep, that's, uh, that's a sprain. Uh, eric, could you grab some ice?

Eric: Yeah.

Rex: Please.

Sarah: Aw, thank you, doc. But it really doesn't even hurt.

Rex: Doc, look, I know you're tough, but I'm gonna go grab a compression bandage from my bag, and after the swelling goes down from the ice, I think that will do the trick, okay?

Eric: It's a little cold... right here.

[Soft r&b continues playing]

Tripp: Wow, that is...that's just...

Haley: Insane, right? I told you.

Tripp: Yeah. Why--why would jj think--I mean, you've been so angry at him for telling his dad about your status...

Haley: And you know, I'm still pretty angry, but he feels so bad, and I know he wants to make it up to me, so now he's making this grand gesture to fix his mistake.

Tripp: What about ice? I mean, wouldn't they know the marriage is fake?

Haley: [Sighs] They'd be watching every move we make, but...tripp, I don't have any other options. I don't know what to do, so part of me is actually thinking of saying yes.

[Sighs] But what if we get busted and then...instead of going back to china, I go to prison, and so does jj?

Tripp: I wish there was something I could do.

Haley: That's so nice of you, but...I don't think there is.

Rafe: Oop, allow me.

Hope: Thank you.

Rafe: By the way, do you remember what I gave you last valentine's day?

Hope: Uh, the lasso

Rafe: The lasso. Yes.

Hope: Yes, the lasso. How could I forget? At one point I really wanted to strangle you with it.

Rafe: Oh, come on. You loved it.

Hope: I did.

Rafe: You know that that was a symbol... a symbol that was supposed to bind us together forever, right? And symbols are nice, they're great... but they're no substitution for this... being together, here, with you, focusing on you. Letting you know that you are and always will be my top priority. Now, with that said, on this day that we are celebrating our anniversary, I want to make you a promise. I promise you...the good times are coming back. They're coming back. We are gonna go to the movies. We're gonna go to the cubs games--we're gonna go on a vacation! We're gonna go anywhere.

Hope: Anywhere? No, wait-- anywhere?

Rafe: Yes. Yes, I mean it. We are going anywhere, and not because we are looking for stefano or working on some case. We are gonna go... we're gonna go to the most beautiful place in the world, and I'm gonna be there with the most beautiful woman in the world... my friend, my partner, my wife. I love you. I love you so much...from the bottom of my heart, and I always will.

[Whispers] I love you.

[Soft emotional music]

-Guys, I want you to meet someone.

Rex: Sorry, bro, I gotta take care of my girl here.

Eric: Yeah, yeah, I'll clean up the glass.

Rex: Okay. That too tight?

Sarah: No. It's perfect.

[Emotional music]

[Door opens]


Ted: Sorry to interrupt.

Rafe: How did you even know we were here?

Ted: Hope left word at the desk.

Hope: What's going on?

Ted: There's been a development in the attempted murder case of chloe lane. Turns out, they found another set of footprints at the dimera mansion. So now we're looking for more than one suspect.

Hope: I need to look into this right away.

Rafe: Yeah, o-of course. Go. Go, seriously.

Hope: You're sure?

Rafe: Yeah. I'll just, uh, clean up here. Go, go.

Hope: Okay. Let's go.

Claire: Hi! How does pan-seared red snapper with jasmine rice and asparagus sound? Oh, and I got the most incredible chocolate tart for dessert. You know, while I get this going, would you mind finishing setting the table? Thank you so much. Don't forget the candles.

Tripp: Look, I'm sorry, claire, but we're gonna have to put dinner on hold for a minute. I have something to tell you.

Claire: Oh. Sounds serious.

Tripp: It is. It is, and you're not gonna like it.

Jj: I thought you were gonna sleep on it.

Haley: I was, but jj, i realized you're right. If I don't do something now, I'm gonna get deported. And so marrying a U.S. Citizen I know is the quickest way to get a green card so I can stay in this country.

Jj: I didn't think you'd say yes but, um, I'm so glad you did. And don't worry--I'll take care of everything, and...

Haley: Jj--

Jj: We'll get married as soon as possible.

Haley: Jj, I'm not gonna marry you. I'm marrying tripp.
