Chelsea checks out the price tag and remarks that these clothes came at a price that would give Bo a heart attack so its good that he doesnt have to foot the bill. Chelsea thinks that Patrick will love her in the outfits but Abby doesnt think any woman would want to wear these clothes in public and uses Billie as an example. Chelsea claims that Billie wouldnt wear it because she is over 30 and therefore too old to pull off the look. Abby points out that Patrick is over 30 but Chelsea claims that it is different for guys. Chelsea claims that Patrick is going to get such an eyeful every time he sees her that hell never look at Billie again.

John helps himself to a cup of coffee when his device beeps. Alex comes downstairs and notes that John is playing with his new toy. Alex confirms that John is more bothered by the fact that Marlena wouldnt even let him into her bedroom last night. Alex asks what the device is telling John and John is confident that the device proved that Alex didnt come out of his room until just now. Alex, glad to hear that, doesnt let on that it was any different. Alex flashes back to gaining access into Marlenas room by the terrace. In the flashback, Alex recalls hiding a tape recorder in Marlenas room so that shell wake up in what he considers just the right mood. John reluctantly admits that he stayed in the den instead of trying to go into Marlenas room. John looks at Alex quizzically when Alex claims that he only wants Marlena to become more and more like herself every day.
Marlena wakes, straightens the covers, and dons her robe. Marlena looks into a handheld mirror and thinks that today is going to be a perfect day.
John questions Alexs intentions. Alex insists that he is trying to help Marlena but isnt sure that John is doing the same. John takes offense but Alex claims that its because John doesnt have the same knowledge and experience that he has as a doctor. John points out that by knowing Marlena as a person that puts him light years ahead of Alex. Alex claims that John only knew Marlena before the accident for now its out of Johns control and John points out that that is because Alex keeps getting in the way. Alex pretends that John is simply being paranoid and claims to being committed to helping Marlena. Alex flashes back to using his own voice while Marlena sleeps to get her to think that hes the one who will protect her and not John. Alex uses the tape recorder to record his message and then places the tape recorder under her pillow to replay as Marlena sleeps. Alex smiles when Marlenas hand pulls away from the pendant John gave her. John is confident that Marlena will remember all today and then set Alex loose.
Sami is relieved when Caroline explains that shes angry that Sami was getting ready for the wedding without her. Sami shows off Lucas flowers to Caroline. Sami wishes that Marlena were also there to help and stops short before blurting out that she wants Marlena to remember being with Roman and get back together with him.

Roman cant understand why Tony isnt willing to give Stan up. Roman relays to Abe how Tony ominously told him the day they botched the escape that he had just ruined the life of someone Roman loves and hopes that Tony wasnt talking about Sami.
Kate reminds Billie that she wasnt invited to the wedding and even so, its the last place she wants to be. Billie insists that is true for her too despite Kates disbelief, and suggests that they instead spend the day wasting money on shoes and drowning their sorrows in food. Kate laughs but then stops herself. Billie sees that as admittance that Kate needs her. Kate points out that Billie should go to the wedding because it would break Lucas heart if his only sister wasnt there to see the love of his life. As Kate refers to Sami as the love of Lucas life, she rolls her eyes and looks about to gag on the words. Billie teases Kate for finally being able to say those words without choking. Kate insists that she must accept the fact that shes lost this battle but then turns the topic to being able to shower her affection on Chelsea thanks to Billie. Kate is taken aback when Billie bluntly insists that the expensive and unnecessary affections that Kate is showering over Chelsea has to stop for Billie knows what Kate is trying to do.
Abby tries to be the voice of wisdom and convince Chelsea that it isnt right to compete with her own mom for a guy but Chelsea will only complain that Billie obviously wants Patrick because of the way she dresses and acts around him. Chelsea suggests that Abby needs to start dressing like shes in the race for a man and how it had better not be Josh. Abby points out that Chelsea was the one who introduced them. Chelsea regrets the decision. Abby insists that she likes Josh. Chelsea gives Abby one of the outfits and tells her to wear it to the wedding so that she can know what it feels like to have men drooling over her.

Bo searches for a word to describe Chelseas outfit and Hope suggests hooch. Jennifer tries to hide a smirk as she looks shocked and Bo fumes.
Abby is hesitant to take the skirt because it is more expensive than anything she owns. Chelsea points out that it didnt cost her anything and that Kate has enough money to keep them both in the latest styles. Abby holds up the barely there skirt and, having decided to wear it, gloats about how no one will be looking at the bride. Bo, having just walked in, declares that he wont allow that to happen.

Abby plops down in the desk chair as she complains that its the same dress she wore to Jacks memorial service and will end up spending the whole day crying from the memories. Abby glares at Jennifer as Jennifer claims that Abby will then spend the whole day crying because she broke Jacks heart by wearing this outfit to church.
Chelsea is hurt that Bo supposedly doesnt want to see her look good but Bo complains that Chelsea is showing too much skin. Chelsea shows Bo pictures of models in a magazine that are wearing similar outfits but Bo isnt impressed and promises to talk to Kate about stopping this gift giving. Chelsea tears up as she talks about how dressing like this makes her feel like shes worth something but doesnt believe Bos attempts to convince her that he does love her and that she is worth everything to him.

Hope asks about the conversation as she continues to look through the box of new clothes. Bo feels confident that things went well but complains that this is harder for him because Chelsea is different than Shawn or Zach. Hope claims that its because they dont have Chelseas bag of tricks, which offends Bo. Bo complains that Hope sees Chelsea in such a negative light and points out that he did crazy things when he was Chelseas age and still grew up to get a respectable job and a great family. Hope pulls Bo close so she can wrap her arms around him and asks if he thinks Shawn will be okay too. Bo believes that since Shawn grew up with their love and support as example, he should know when his behavior is wrong. Hope thinks that Chelsea should know this too but Bo doesnt think that wearing a sexy outfit is going to send Chelsea on the road to hell. Hope insists that it isnt about the outfit but about discipline. Hope insists that Chelsea doesnt need trendy outfits but instead needs to behave appropriately.

Billie is infuriated that Kate has mentioned getting back together with Bo yet again after being asked not to. Billie accuses Kate of trying to change the subject and insists that Kate respect her wishes when it comes to Chelsea. Kate asks to be able to mold Chelsea and adds that it would serve as a distraction to keep her from thinking about Lucas getting married to Sami whom she refers to as a good-for-nothing liar. Billie smiles as she tells Kate to stop interfering in her life and get back into Lucas life. Billie holds up the phone and suggests that Kate call and apologize to both Lucas and Sami. Kate slams the phone back down at the mention of having to apologize to Sami. Kate swears that if she had to do it all over again, she wouldnt change a thing because every day Lucas and Will spend around Sami is another day in danger.
Jennifer appears at the top of the stairs dressed for the wedding and Abby rolls her eyes as Chelsea whispers to her that she and her mom look like twins. Jennifer comes downstairs as Bo and Hope walk up and Jennifer tells Abby that Jack is almost ready. Hope and Bo compliment the ladies on their outfits. Jennifer shares her hope that the wedding takes place this time because Lucas really loves Sami. Hope points out that Sami loves Lucas just as much and is hopeful that they can become a family with Will. Jennifer offers to say a prayer and Hope rubs her hands together as she jokes about how it shouldnt be boring which makes everyone laugh.
Kate looks at the same newspaper headline as she insists to Billie that Sami is mixed up with Tony. Kate insists that the look on Samis face upon hearing that the car was blown up was more panic than relief. Kate complains that its driving her crazy not to be able to prove Samis involvement with Tony. Kate wants to hold onto the hope that Samis own wedding curse will ruin her own wedding. Kate quips that she hopes Sami will get struck by lightning. Billies eyes widen as they hear thunder crash outside.
St. Lukes church:
Sami reminds Roman that Marlena fell while pregnant with his baby and thinks that is proof that Marlena will remember that Roman is the man she truly loves.

Roman jokes that people are out in the parking lot taking bets. Caroline quickly assures Sami that Roman is kidding and that they are really proud of Sami. Roman echoes the sentiment. Sami hopes that Marlena will get her memory back in the middle of the ceremony and suddenly remember that she is Marlenas daughter and that Marlena really loves Roman.
