Pictures by Juanita
Mimi and Rex are making love in their bedroom. Mimi and Rex are elated to be back together again and Rex promises that theyll be together for the rest of their lives.
Shawn paces the living room and overhears Rex and Mimi making love. Shawn imagines Belle and Philip making love and tries to shake the idea from his mind.
Philip uses the kitchen sink to soap up a washcloth. Philip leans down to pick up the soap that slipped out of his hand and knocks his head on a bowl that was too close to the edge of the counter. Philip curses and pushes the bowl away from the edge. Belle comes downstairs, surprised at Philips actions.
Lucas helps himself to a cup of coffee. Kate knocks on the door and Lucas lets her in. Kate complains that Lucas isnt ready to go yet (hes still dressed for bed), and Lucas claims that Kate is early. Kate insists that Lucas is late as she puts a box on the table. Lucas jokes about how the box is his birthday present but Kate informs him, as she helps herself to a cup of coffee, that the box is for Wills next care package to be sent to camp including the new hiking boots he wanted. Lucas complains that Kate bought Will the boots after he had already told Will that his current boots were fine. Kate insists that she wants to spoil Will and asks why Lucas isnt ready to go visit Philip like they planned. Lucas starts to explain but is interrupted when Sami comes out of the bedroom dressed in just a robe. Kate and Sami face each other and both angrily ask at the same time what the other is doing there. Kate sighs and looks at Lucas.
Mimi lies on the bed and watches Rex put his clothes back on. Rex notices Mimis expression and jokes about how she seems to want him to keep his clothes off rather than put them back on. Mimi likes the sound of that and asks where Rex is going. Rex reiterates that he has to go out and get Mimi her surprise. Mimi complains that she should be getting surprises for Rex since he was the one who saved her life. Rex feels that it wasnt a selfless act but Mimi is still grateful. Rex asks Mimi why she plead guilty to something she didnt do and Mimi claims it was because she felt guilty since Jan would never have hit her head had they not been arguing. Rex asks what they were arguing about but Mimi brushes off the question. Rex agrees to postpone talking about it until he gets back with Mimis surprise. Rex kisses Mimi goodbye and leaves the bedroom. Alone in the room, Mimi worries that Rex will wish he never freed her from jail when he finds out about the abortion.
Rex rushes around the kitchen checking the refrigerator and making a list of items he needs to get from the store to make Mimis favorite breakfast. Shawn walks up and after informing Rex that he made coffee, commends him on freeing Mimi. Rex claims he couldnt live without Mimi and therefore had no choice but to find a way to free her. Shawn claims hes happy for both of them but doesnt look it and Rex questions him. Shawn complains that its hard to watch Rex and Mimi so happy and perfect when his plans didnt turn out so happily. Rex tells Shawn to accept that Belle is Philips wife and move on. Shawn insists that Belle only chose to stay with Philip out of sympathy but Rex finds that hard to believe. Shawn refuses to accept Belles decision and becomes angry when Rex insists that he must accept it.
Belle wheels Philip over to the couch and sits down to face him. Philip explains that hes meeting with the doctor today who is going to fit him for the prosthesis and he was using the kitchen sink to clean himself up since he cant risk the stairs. Belle criticizes Philip for not asking her for help. Philip feels bad that he cant even wash himself and Belle tries to make him feel better by assuring him that it will just take time. Philip complains that there will be other things he cant do by himself either and Belle quickly insists that shell help with those things too. Philip scoffs and turns his wheelchair away from Belle. Belle insists that she wants to be there to help Philip. Belle looks sad as Philip, frustrated, asks how long it will take before Belle becomes sick of being married to an invalid.
Bo & Hopes house:
Bo is sitting on the couch with his arm around Hope as she sits with her back against him. Hope is anxious to take the Fancy Face III out for its first voyage and Bo insists that they must make it a family event and bring Shawn and Zack along. Hope recalls how Shawn loved the old boat and cant wait to see Shawns reaction to the news about the new boat. Bo is anxious to see Shawn at all and complains that he hasnt returned their calls upon returning home from Germany. Hope suggests that Shawn is probably exhausted and Bo cautions her not to make excuses for Shawn. Hope wonders what happened in Germany and Bo hopes that Shawn kept his promise of not coming between Belle and Philip. Hope wants to know why Bo keeps saying that Shawn should not be with Belle.
Kate scoffs and steps away. Lucas informs Sami that Kate came by to drop off a package for Will. Kate complains that she doesnt need a reason to come visit her own son and Sami insists that they dont need Kate giving Will anything. Kate recalls that Will is angry with Sami and thats why he was living with Lucas but Sami claims thats only temporary. Kate notes that both Lucas and Sami are half dressed and hopes that they didnt sleep together. Kate accuses Sami of drugging Lucas like she drugged Austin. Sami counters by asking if Kate used that plan to drug her into bed with Brandon. Kate ignores Samis bating to demand to know what is going on from Lucas. Sami interrupts before Lucas can answer to complain that Lucas is a grown man and can make his own decisions. Kate ignores Sami again and demands that Lucas tell her what is going on. Lucas explains that Sami came over to use his shower since hers isnt working and Sami is angry that Kate felt like she deserved an explanation. Kate accuses Sami of lying about her shower not working and Sami offers to take Kate to her apartment to prove it. Kate points out that Sami already took a shower now so it would be irrelevant and tells her to get out. Sami refuses until Lucas suggests that Sami leave. Sami agrees since Lucas is the one who asked but also asks to speak to him alone for a moment. Lucas agrees and they step out into the hall to talk.
Lucas apartment & Eugenias apartment:
Once alone, Kates cell phone rings and she angrily answers it. Eugenia is offended that Kate would talk to her that way. Kate is surprised to be hearing from Eugenia. Eugenia declares that its time for Kate to pay her back for all the help she gave Kate for breaking up Sami and Lucas. Kate asks if Eugenia is threatening her.
Rex points out that it was Belles decision to make so it doesnt matter whether Shawn accepts it or not. Shawn is confident that the marriage wont last but Rex cautions that hes fooling himself. Shawn insists that he and Belle belong together just like Rex and Mimi. Rex doesnt want to ruin his good day by arguing with Shawn. Shawn insists that once Philip recovers, Belle will ask him for a divorce. Rex shakes his head and walks out. Shawn looks at a picture of him and Belle and vows that they will be together.
Mimi comes out of the bedroom and explains that she heard what Shawn just said to Rex. Shawn hopes that Mimi will be able to talk some sense into Rex. Mimi tries to get Shawn to see that what Rex did is different from what Shawn wants to do but Shawn insists its the same because they were both trying to set their woman free. Mimi points out that she was in jail, not committed to another man like Belle is to Philip. Shawn curses Mimi and accuses her of not being his friend.
Belle goes over to kneel by Philips side. She assures him that when she looks at him, she sees her brave handsome heroic husband and refuses to let him think anything less of himself. Philip explains that hes frustrated because he cant do the simplest things for himself. Belle assures him that he will be able to do everything soon because he will have his prosthesis and will go through physical therapy. Philip recalls that that is what Heather Mills McCartney told him at the hospital but its still frustrating because he wants to be able to do those things now. Belle assures Philip that it wont last forever. Belle puts her hand on Philips hands and assures him that they are a team, referring to him as Mr. Kiriakis. Philip kisses Belles wedding ring donned hand as he refers to her as Mrs. Kiriakis. Philip laughs as Belle jokes about how she doesnt want the doctor to see that shes not holding up her end of the deal that enabled Philip to complete his recovery at home. Belle has Philip wheel himself over to face the couch as she prepares a bowl of water and grabs a towel to bring over to him. Philip worries that Belle wont be able to handle seeing Philips amputated leg. Belle insists that she married Philip, not his leg as she brings everything over to the couch. Philip avoids Belles gaze as she pulls up the blanket to expose the end of Philips amputated leg.
Sami lets Lucas into her apartment to talk. Sami starts off by claiming she wanted to talk about Lucas finding Nicole in her apartment. Sami claims Nicole was there because she was drunk and wanted to pick a fight because Brady dumped her. Lucas asks why Nicole was in Samis closet and Sami avoids answering the question by offering Lucas some coffee. Lucas wants to know what Sami wanted to talk about and Sami explains that she wants an answer to her previous question of whether Lucas will give her another chance if she can prove that Kate set her up. Lucas doesnt think Sami can prove it and Sami insists that Tony has proof. Lucas points out that Kate has a witness to corroborate her alibi of being at the penthouse all night and couldnt have been in two places at once. Sami points out that Kate had an accomplice in Eugenia.
Lucas apartment & Eugenias apartment:
Kate asks Eugenia if she is blackmailing her and Eugenia assures her that she would never even be able to. Eugenia wants Kate to come through on her offer of a job for helping with the plan. Kate nonchalantly tells Eugenia to hang in there because the economy is getting better. Eugenia complains that her life of having to work three jobs is so bad that she had to send her dog, Dino, away to live with friends because she was never home to feed or walk him. Kate insists that there is no way she can give her a job at Basic Black. Eugenia threatens that all bets are off if Kate goes back on her word.
Lucas thinks the idea of Eugenia and Kate conspiring against Sami is absurd. Sami persists so Lucas begins to consider the idea but wonders why Kate would pick Eugenia of all people. Sami realizes that Kate conspired with Eugenia because she was thinking just like Sami would. Sami reiterates her question about whether Lucas will give her another chance and Lucas agrees that if Sami can prove that Kate set her up, he will give her another chance. Sami starts to tear up as she hugs Lucas to thank him. Lucas pulls Sami off of him because he is skeptical that Sami will be able to prove it but Sami is confident that she can. Lucas tells Sami that if she wants to put anything in the package to mail to Will then to come by because he will be mailing it all this afternoon. Lucas heads back to his apartment. Sami wonders how she can prove that Kate is guilty.
Lucas apartment and Eugenias apartment:
Kate insists to Eugenia that she is not going back on her word. Eugenia begs Kate to help her and insists that she would be a good candidate for a job at Basic Black. Kate claims that Eugenia just showing up working at Basic Black would make Sami and Lucas suspicious. Eugenia complains that she is one paycheck away from living on the street and begs Kate to do something. Kate promises to find Eugenia a job somewhere. Eugenia complains that it isnt right that they went into the deal as partners and now that its done, shes stuck eating cat food while Kate eats caviar. Kate warns Eugenia not to threaten her. Eugenia insists that she isnt threatening Kate and doesnt even have any proof such as tapes of all the phone calls between her and Kate where Kate talked about what she planned to do to Sami. As shes claiming this to Kate, Eugenia pulls out a fake book that inside houses a mini-safe that contains the tape from those phone calls. Kate sighs as she somewhat believes that Eugenia doesnt have any proof. Eugenia complains that she is desperate for a job and Kate promises to take care of her. Kate thanks Eugenia for all of her help just as Lucas walks in and wants to know whom Kate is talking to.
Philip thanks Belle for her help as Belle finishes washing his leg. Philip suggests they hire a nurse from now on. Belle worries that its because she hurt Philip but as hes assuring her hes fine, he grabs his leg in pain. Belle becomes convinced that she did hurt Philip but Philip explains that its the phantom pain and that he can still feel like his leg and foot are still there. Belle gently caresses Philips leg and Philip complains that its nasty looking. Belle assures him that its still healing and Philip complains that its harder for Belle to look at it then him and reiterates that this isnt what Belle signed up for when she married him. Belle insists that she signed up to be Philips wife through sickness and in health and if this had happened to her, hed be right there with her. Philip still complains that to do so, Belle would have to look at his leg. Belle promises to allow Philip to hire a nurse tomorrow if he so chooses but for today, she will take care of him so he should sit back and stop complaining about it. Belle musters a smile as she uses the sponge to wash Philips chest.
Kate hangs up her phone as Lucas asks again whom she was talking to. Kate lies and claims she was talking to Joelle who is covering for her at work. Lucas says hell go get dressed so they can go see Philip and starts for the bedroom but Kate stops him to ask for the real reason that Sami was here. Kate stops Lucas from answering by asking if Sami spent the conversation accusing her of setting Sami up after she went to all the trouble to finance the wedding and then trying to coerce Lucas in getting back together with her. Lucas confirms that Kate is right, surprised that she guessed right. Kate complains that thats the only song that Samis jukebox plays. Lucas asks Kate to swear that she didnt set Sami up and Kate asks how it would have even been possible for her to set Sami up. Lucas warns that Sami is determined to find proof and Kate insists that Sami cant find proof because nothing happened. Lucas warns that if Sami does find proof, hell never be able to forgive Kate, not only because of the act but because she lied to him. Kate asks Lucas whom he believes. Lucas says he believes Kate because Kate wouldnt do something like that knowing that shed lose Lucas and Will permanently. Kate sighs and Lucas heads into the bedroom to get dressed. Kate tells herself to relax; confident that there is no way that Sami can prove that she was involved.
Lucas apartment & Eugenias apartment & Samis apartment:
The screen splits into three scenes, Kate on the right, Sami in the top left corner, and Eugenia on the bottom. Eugenia holds the stack of taped phone calls in her hand as she tells Kate that she better come through with that non entry level job or else the evidence Kate doesnt think exists will destroy her. Sami insists that Eugenia is the key to proving that Kate set her up and that knowing Eugenia, she has proof stashed somewhere. Sami vows to get Eugenia to talk.
Bo & Hopes house:
Hope defends her decision to give Shawn the money for Germany by claiming that he would have found it either way.

Hope thinks that Judge Fitzpatrick wouldnt have any problem granting Shawn a continuance but Bo isnt so sure that the judge will be that lenient. Hope defends Bos theory that the judge will see Shawn as a kid with no job who dropped out of school and only cares about getting Belle back. Hope and Bo continue to argue about whether Shawn should keep pursuing Belle. Bo picks up the phone to call Shawn and refuses to stop trying to reach Shawn until they find out what is going on.
Shawn feels that he and Belle still have a chance because Belle and Philip arent sleeping together. Mimi points out that Shawn doesnt know that for sure but Shawn is confident. Shawns cell phone rings and Shawn avoids answering it because he knows that its Bo and Hope calling. The loft phone rings and Mimi answers it.

Mimi asks Shawn why he didnt want to talk to his parents. Shawn explains that he doesnt want to hear another lecture from Bo because Bo thinks that Belle should stay with Philip. Mimi asks about Hopes perspective and Shawn explains that Hope wants him and Belle together and gave him the money for Germany. Shawn complains that the only thing keeping him sane now is the thought that Belle is more Philips nurse than his wife.
Philip breathes deeply as Belle washes his arms, down his stomach, and his face with the sponge. As Belle is washing Philips face, Philip grabs her hand and tosses the sponge back into the bowl of water. Philip pulls Belles face for a kiss and thanks her for taking care of him and not giving up on them. They kiss again and Philip pulls Belle up onto his lap as they continue to kiss.
Mimi tells Shawn that he got a letter from the courthouse but Shawn brushes it off. Mimi cautions that it looks important but Shawn thinks its just that the courthouse wanted to move up the date but Mickey took care of it.

Rex greets Mimi and informs her that hes back with ingredients for her favorite breakfast. Mimi and Rex offer to have Shawn join them for breakfast.

Lucas offers to help Philip get dressed and Philip gets offended at Lucas thinking he cant even dress himself.
Belle hands Kate her cup of coffee and cleans up the bowl and sponge as she explains that she was using it to wash Philip because there is no shower downstairs. Kate commends Belle for helping Philip. Belle assures Kate that she intends to be there for Philip.
Eugenia dumps all the tapes out on the table as she stacks them up and returns them back to the fake book safe.

Eugenia kisses the book upon closing it and leaves her apartment.
