Today: A painful day for the Brady's as they give up custody of J.T. and say good-bye. Also say good-bye to Paul Logan, Tamera Clatterbuck, and Joshua and Jacob Rips(Glen, Barb, and J.T). Only about 5 commercials in this show, but this show is very, very sad and you will need a Kleenex box.
"Say Good Night, not Good-bye"
In the kitchen, Shawn has J.T. as he asks him if he wants a chicken nugget. J.T. says no as Shawn picks him up. There is a knock at the door as Shawn hopes that it isn't the Reiber's. Nope, it's Doug and Julie as she congratualates Shawn on being so strong. Mickey and Maggie also come into the kitchen, followed by Hope and Jen. Hope hugs her dad. They all go into the living room. We see a flash of the clock, which says 1:15.
Back in the living room, there is a knock at the door as John and Marlena come in. John yells at the reporters as he comes in. Roman goes outside to deal with them as Shawn asks what John is doing there. Shawn is shocked to learn that his father invited John as he says that John has a right to be there. Bo let's John hold J.T. Marlena asks Hope if it's okay that she came and she says yes as they hug and go into the kitchen.
Back in the kitchen, Marlena brings a basket that she brought for Hope in as Jen gives Hope some cookies that Abby made and put love into everyone. There is another knock at the door as Grandpa Shawn and Caroline come in. Mickey looks upset as Hope tells him that it's not his fault. Mickey is still depressed as Maggie comforts him. They go back into the living room.
Back in the living room, as John holds J.T., he says brother and he asks Shawn about that. He says that he taught him. Hope and Jen come downstairs after checking on Alice as Jen makes a comment about how Hope should show Bo the scrapbook she made. Her and Bo sit and look at it with Shawn and J.T. We see a page in the book that says "The Wheels on the Bus" and they talk about it. J.T. goes to Doug and he holds him. He sings "Say Goodnight, not Goodbye" to J.T. Doug starts to sob as Caroline walks past the clock and it says 1:30. The clock turns gray and the second hand moves around to 1:35.
Later, Shawn comes back downstairs as Caroline asks how Jan is. He says good as she congratulates him on his acceptance at Pepperdine. He yells at her as Grandpa Shawn overhears. He says that is no way to talk to his grandmother as Shawn apologizes. Shawn says that he isn't going to college as he has no future. Caroline asks what example he wants to set for his brother as Shawn claims that J.T. is no longer his brother. She asks if he wants J.T. to see him as a loser when he gets older. John walks over to Marlena, reminding her of the pain that she went through when she lost her child. Grandpa Shawn suggests they join hands and pray and they do. It is weird how Marlena is in between Roman and John as Grandpa Shawn prays. Caroline says that they should be grateful for what they got and talks about faith. Shawn asks how he can have faith in God when he is taking J.T. away from them. She asks Shawn if he would have turned his'back on J.T. from the beginning if he knew he could only spend a short time with him. He says no. Maggie asks Mickey to read a passage from the bible and he does. We see a shot of the family tree as Caroline walks past the clock and it hits 1:40(only 20 more minutes).
Back in the kitchen, Carol, Barb, Glen, and J.T. leave as Hope yells that she loves him. After they leave, she breaks down as Bo and Shawn comfort her.
In John and marlena's car, they sit, ready to leave as the song "Say Goodnight, not Goodbye plays.
Back in the kitchen, Bo stands there choking back tears as he looks at J.T.'s baby moniter and heads somewhere.
In J.T.'s room, Hope sits in the rocking chair looking at an old book of J.T's.
In the backyard, Shawn picks up J.T.'s ball and bat and throws the ball up in the air and hits it.
Down in the basement, Bo looks at the baby moniter and throws it. He punches his punching bag as he breaks down with tears and falls against the bag, crying.
Back in the nursery, Hope looks at the book as we see a shot of her and J.T.'s empty crib. The End.
