Marlena: Thank you so much for coming to help. The Midnight Mission is going to pick all this up in a bit, as long as I can get it down to the garage in time.

Roman: Whoa. When you said a "few boxes," I was thinking maybe three, four max.

Marlena: Oh, sorry. I was going to call Shawn to help, but I thought under the circumstances --

Roman: Are you talking about Belle and Philip?

Marlena: How do you know that?

Roman: Well, I -- I heard a few things. So listen, if you want to talk about it, go ahead and talk about it, okay? But if you don't, then that's fine, don't.

Marlena: I'm not sure what to do about it.

Roman: About Bill?

Marlena: No, about Hope.

Hope [Clears throat] Hi.

Belle: I was at Baron's today, and I picked these up. They're really cute, right?

Hope: Yeah. Very.

Belle: Yeah. I would have gotten one for Claire, but they didn't have one in her size. I was thinking I would drop by, drop these off, spend some time with my niece and nephew, but, um... I'm gonna order something. You want to join me?

Hope: Um, sure. Why not? Thank you.

Belle: Sami said the twins aren't sleeping through the night, which, I guess, doesn't really come as a surprise 'cause of everything that's going on with Lucas and E.J.

Hope: Well, children can definitely sense when there's tension. It doesn't matter what their age.

Belle: Are you talking about Claire?

Hope: You know, I think I'm just gonna order something to drink.

Belle: Shawn and I are very good with Claire, and we tell her every day how much Mommy and Daddy love her.

Hope: And which Daddy might that be? Would that be Philip or my son?

Philip: No, no. No. It's just a matter of blocking the merger to clear the way for our guys in Tokyo. Mm-hmm. Russ, I'm gonna have to call you back. How'd you get in here?

Shawn D.: Your secretary must be on a break.

Philip: I don't have time for this.

Shawn D.: I just wanted to give you a heads-up, if you want to call one of your fancy lawyers.

Philip: You're not really going through with your threat.

Shawn D.: I am. My dad's gonna be here any minute.

Kate: I was going to have a dirty martini, but, actually, a glass of Pinot Grigio is sounding really refreshing.

Lucas: Did you hear me? I told you Bo has my gun. He's got my gun despite everything I did to try to prevent that from happening. I failed.

Kate: Another thing -- Pinot is gonna go with salmon.

Lucas: I can't believe you. All you're concerned about is what you're gonna have for lunch. I'm not gonna do this. I'm out of here.

Kate: No, no, no. Come on. I asked you here to celebrate with me.

Lucas: Celebrate what? He's got my gun, Mom. It's going through ballistics as we speak.

Kate: [Sighs] Now, haven't I always taken care of you? Sit down.

Lucas: Now you're really starting to freak me out.

Kate: I got a call early this morning, and the lawyers told me that I am going to be charged with a misdemeanor, which means a slap on the wrist.

Lucas: For being involved with E.J.'s shooting, that's it? I can't believe it.

Kate: You know, don't sound so thrilled, okay?

Lucas: I am thrilled. I am. For you. I'm just a little surprised. That's all.

Kate: Well, I don't think you should underestimate your mother. You know I always get what I want.

Lucas: Yeah, meanwhile, I'm gonna rot in a jail cell.

Kate: Look, if I came through all of this relatively unscathed, so will you. You know, I'm going to have champagne. That's what this calls for. Where is that waiter?

Lucas: How can you be so cavalier about this?

Kate: Honey, because everything's going to be just fine. Did you know the police have a way to test the bullet that is in E.J.'s spine? They're going to compare it with the bullet fired from your gun. When forensics finds out that it's not a match, you're going to be home free.

Lucas: But it is gonna match.

Kate: Lucas, c--

Lucas: Really, Mom. It really is. I did it. I shot E.J.

Sami: The twins are asleep, and I left you a bottle --

E.J.: Snowflakes or doves?

Sami: What?

E.J.: Our Christmas cards. I think I prefer doves.

Sami: You're sending Christmas cards?

E.J.: Yes, I am. Oh, don't worry. I'll sign your name for you. I also wrote one of those bragging letters that you Americans seem to like so much. Let me show you. There you go. It's been, you know, such an eventful year this year that I thought we would do well to keep the families up to date with everything that's going on. Could you get me your address list?

Sami: We're not sending this out.

E.J.: Why? The grammar's not that bad, is it?

Sami: Look, E.J., we'll talk about it later, okay? I got the twins down. I have my monitor set up. So if they wake up, I'll be right back, okay?

E.J.: Where are you going? You're not going across the hall, are you?

Sami: Well, E.J., I haven't moved my stuff in here yet.

E.J.: Please, come on, okay? I thought we could spend a little bit of time together -- you know? -- Have a glass of wine. How about this? If you ask me how my day went, I'll tell you my good news.

Sami: What good news?

E.J.: I had another physiotherapy session this morning.

Sami: How did that go? Are you still feeling more tingling?

E.J.: Actually, I was able to stand up pretty much on my own.

Sami: Wow. That's amazing. Once you started recovery, it's been going surprisingly fast.

E.J.: It's fantastic. I had no idea I would recover this quickly. So maybe instead of you having to lie down, maybe we could go into the bedroom and, uh, well, see if we can connect with some of these feelings you have for me, eh?

Belle: I'm trying to be nice.

Hope: I think it's a reasonable question. If you're not even sure who you want to be with, think how confused Claire must be.

Belle: First of all, Claire is not confused about anything. Shawn is her father. She knows that. And second of all, Philip and I are over. There's nothing going on between us.

Hope: Really? It's over?

Belle: Yes. There's no sneaking around, no phone calls, nothing.

Hope: Hmm. Then why were you meeting with Philip before the reunion?

Philip: Come on, Shawn. You're blowing this thing way out of proportion. All that Belle and I were trying to do was give you a little career boost. What's the crime in that?

Shawn D.: Let's see. We got withholding evidence, obstructing justice. You know, you could stop me at any time if you want.

Philip: So I do you this favor and this is the thanks I get?

Shawn D.: A favor? Belle told me all about the deal that you two made. The only reason why you did it was so you could get close to her.

Philip: There's plenty of other ways I could get close to Belle if I wanted to.

Shawn D.: Yeah, you're right. You could just try the old-fashioned way of seducing her. Maybe then she might jump into bed with you.

Philip: Nothing happened in that hotel room. All we did was talk.

Shawn D.: That must have been pretty tough for you, huh? You're not used to hearing somebody tell you no, are you?

Philip: [Sighs] Who are you really mad at, Shawn? I think the real reason you want to talk to Bo is for revenge. You want to punish Belle, don't you?

Roman: What's the problem with Hope?

Marlena: I love Hope. You know that. She was here today. She was comforting and helpful and just a dear, dear friend, and she is so hard on Belle.

Roman: About Philip?

Marlena: Yeah. I understand. I'm not crazy about Belle's behavior, either, but I know she loves Shawn and she's committed to him.

Roman: And Hope doesn't?

Marlena: I don't know. She says she believes in them. I'm not convinced. I don't -- I don't even know why Belle let Philip get to her again.

Roman: One woman in love with two men. It hits kind of close to home, doesn't it, Doc?

Marlena: I never wanted her to go through this.

Roman: No. Of course you didn't.

Marlena: I told her how tough it was -- all of us going through it -- you, me, John. I guess she wasn't listening.

Roman: Well, you know what? I guess she will have to learn from her mistakes, just like her mom did.

Marlena: You were not a mistake.

Roman: [Chuckles] Well, I do appreciate that. Thank you. [Cellphone ringing]

Roman: D.A.'s office. It must be about your case. Keep your fingers crossed.

Kate: [Sighs]

Lucas: That's right. I did it. I put a bullet in his back.

Kate: Oh, God, Lucas.

Lucas: I don't know what's gonna happen next. I just thought you should hear it from me first.

Kate: We're gonna fight it. That's what's gonna happen.

Lucas: No, we're not. There's nothing we can do.

Kate: There most certainly is. E.J. played dirty to manipulate Sami, and we're gonna play dirty, too. I have a file this thick on him. We're gonna win this case before it even goes to trial.

Lucas: We're not doing any of that because I am pleading guilty.

Sami: Wow. You don't waste any time, do you?

E.J.: Well, you know, the kids are asleep. We don't have that much time to ourselves. Besides, we have something to celebrate, don't we? I'm on the road to recovery, and I think that it's about time that you and I put a little bit of romance into this marriage.

Sami: I'll bet you are recovering, aren't you?! You've been faking this whole time! You're not even paralyzed, are you?

E.J.: Stop it, all right?

Sami: What's this? All part of the big fakeout? And the physical therapist that Stefano hired, probably just to make the whole thing seem legitimate.

E.J.: You really think I'd do this to myself? Stick myself in a chair? You think I'd stop myself from walking, stop myself from driving my car, taking my son to the park, just to gain your pity?

Sami: Yes, I do.

E.J.: Well, you're wrong.

Sami: No. E.J., I'm not wrong. No, I get it. You probably were paralyzed, but then you got better. And then you've been stringing me along, pretending to be an invalid so that I would feel sorry for you. I get it, E.J.

E.J.: How dare you. How dare you. You should be ashamed of yourself. You want proof that I'm in this condition? Talk to my physician. Talk to my physiotherapist. Look at my X-rays. Go and ask your lover across the hall, who put the bullet in my back, in the first place!

Marlena: I'm almost afraid to ask.

Roman: The D.A. reduced your attempted-murder charge to a misdemeanor for gun possession.

Marlena: I don't know what to say. [Exhales sharply]

Roman: [Chuckles] All right. Well, I'll tell you what. You just say this. Say that you are gonna get a very comfortable pair of work shoes, because doing a couple hundred hours community service in dress shoes -- that just wouldn't be a whole lot of fun.

Marlena: That's it?

Roman: There's a fine, too, but other than that, you are good to do, and you are also officially allowed to smile.

Marlena: Oh, Roman, I'm not ungrateful. I'm thrilled. I just -- I'm so surprised.

Roman: Well, my guess is the D.A.'s only interested in the bullet that hit E.J.

Marlena: No. I think you had something to do with this. [Chuckles] I don't know how to thank you. [Sniffles]

Roman: Hey, it's what ex-husbands are for. Speaking of which, I think I may have helped another ex, as well.

Marlena: Kate?

Roman: Yeah. The D.A. called her lawyer this morning with the same deal.

Marlena: Oh, my goodness. Roman, who shot E.J.?

Roman: Well, that is the million-dollar question right there.

Kate: Okay. Look. You're not being rational. Have you thought about this? Have you thought about the consequences?

Lucas: Yes, I have.

Kate: What about Will? What about the twins? Have you thought about your children?

Lucas: If I fight these charges, do you realize what's gonna happen?

Kate: Yeah, I do. We're gonna win.

Lucas: No, we're not gonna win. Stefano is gonna go after my children as soon as I make a move.

Kate: Lucas --

Lucas: Listen to me. Family means everything to me. I've already lost Sami. I am not gonna lose my children, too.

Kate: Okay, look. A parent will do anything for their children. I know that better than anyone.

Lucas: And that night -- the night I saw Sami walk down the aisle with E.J. all my dreams were over. "I'm not gonna grow old with Sami. I'm not gonna watch my kids grow up with her anymore. All that's out the window."

Kate: [Sighs]

Lucas: Pretty ironic, isn't it? And in the end, it's my own hatred that destroyed everything.

Sami: Lucas did not put that bullet in you.

E.J.: Oh, yes, he did, and I don't blame him. Had the roles been reversed, I might have considered doing the same thing.

Sami: You know better than anyone that he didn't do it.

E.J.: Do I? And how do I know that? What am I, omniscient?

Sami: Hardly. No, you're just a snoop. You were listening in on our conversation with the baby monitor.

Belle: We talked about Claire.

Hope: I think you're lying.

Belle: No, I'm not.

Hope: You swore to me that -- that you would have nothing to do with Philip ever again. I believe you swore the same to Shawn. And yet what? You met with Philip to talk about Claire.

Belle: Look, I love Shawn with all of my heart, and I'm sorry you don't believe that.

Hope: Well, you certainly have a funny way of showing it, Belle.

Belle: [Scoffs]

Hope: Were you talking about Claire when you and Philip were upstairs [Exhales sharply] Having sex?

Belle: I have really tried to be respectful of you.

Hope: You want to talk about "respectful," Belle? How about respecting yourself... your husband? I'm the one who's gone out of her way to give you the benefit of the doubt.

Belle: Oh, please. How can you even say that? As soon as you found out about Philip and me, you turned around and told the entire town -- Bo, Kayla, my mother. God knows who else. If you had respect for me or for Shawn, you would have kept your mouth shut.

Hope: You're lecturing me right now?

Belle: You know what? I have always admired you and Bo, and the kind of marriage that you two have is exactly what I want with Shawn. You've had your difficult spots, and you got through them, and so will Shawn and I, so just stop judging me.

Hope: I'm not. That is not what this is about. It's about trust... and you lost mine when you slept with Philip.

Belle: Yeah, and I'm never gonna be able to earn that back. You've made that very clear.

Hope: How many chances have I given you? I've given you enough.

Belle: No. What you have given me are tests, and you're gonna make sure I fail with flying colors, aren't you?

Shawn D.: That's cold-blooded.

Philip: But it's true. You're mad at Belle, and this is your sick way of getting back at her.

Shawn D.: You know what? I don't care what you think.

Philip: What does Belle think? If you tell Belle what really happened, she'll be charged as an accessory to a crime.

Shawn D.: I'm gonna leave her name out of it.

Philip: There's one tiny problem. No way is Bo going to believe that I took this kind of risk just to help you. He'll be looking for a motive, and it'll take him 10 seconds to piece it together.

Shawn D.: Wow. I guess you got it all figured out, don't you?

Philip: All I'm saying is I'd consider the consequences if I were you before you go shooting your mouth off to Bo.

Bo: Hey, guys. What's going on?

Kate: You are not a murderer.

Lucas: Have you forgotten about Franco Kelly?

Kate: [Sighs] No... and that's my point... because I remember what that did to you. That was the darkest period of your life. So for you to go back and do that again, Lucas --

Lucas: This is different this time. This time it's personal. E.J. took so much away from me. I wanted to take something away from him.

Kate: His life?

Lucas: The night of the wedding, I was at home with the twins. I was trying to relax. I was trying to keep my mind occupied, but I just couldn't. I couldn't stop thinking about it. As I watched those twins sleep, they were so peaceful... and I was sitting there getting angrier and angrier about the whole thing. So I called a baby nurse, and I went to the church.

Kate: I was there, Lucas. I didn't see you there.

Lucas: There's no way you would have seen me. I was hiding behind a curtain. I could see Stefano sitting in the front row, and I wanted to wipe that damn smile off his face. When it came time for Sami to put E.J.'s ring on, she didn't want to do it, and I could tell. And when the priest told him to kiss his bride, he tried, but Sami wouldn't let him. The next thing I remember -- I had the gun aimed at E.J., my head was pounding, my body felt numb, and I pulled the trigger. I couldn't stop myself. So I did it. I shot him. Do you believe me now? Instead of E.J. going down, it's -- it's my life that's over. Just say something.

Kate: We're gonna get through this. I'm going to protect you.

Lucas: No, you're not. There is nothing we can do.

Kate: Well, there is something that you can do. You can leave the country -- immediately.

E.J.: I realize this may be a little bit hard for you to fathom, but I can find more stimulating ways to pass my time than listening to your idle conversation.

Sami: [Chuckles] Apparently not.

E.J.: Darling, you found the monitor. It was turned off. I thought we finished this conversation.

Sami: You turned it off after you listened in on us.

E.J.: It's like I'm talking to a wall.

Sami: E.J., don't try to convince me. I know you were listening in. I know you heard me ask Lucas point-blank if he shot you, and he told me that he didn't. I know you heard us.

E.J.: There we go. We have our answer. How silly of me. "Lucas said it." Then it must be true 'cause that's worth its weight in gold. Wake up. Stop being such a simpleton. He's lying to you, and he's gonna keep lying to you until he gets caught, which, darling, is not gonna be very long.

Sami: You're wrong about Lucas, like you're wrong about everything else.

E.J.: When you say that, the color drains out of your face. Either you know you're lying, or the stress of juggling two men is beginning to take its toll. Well, don't worry, because that is gonna end very soon.

Hope: You dare look for pity from me. Trust is earned, and you throw it away in one afternoon.

Belle: Well, I got a couple words for you, Hope. Patrick Lockhart.

Hope: Who are you? I don't even know who you are. I don't recognize you anymore.

Belle: Well, nobody's perfect. You of all people should know that.

Hope: There's no such thing as perfect. We both know that. [Sighs] Belle, I have watched you grow up since you were a baby, with two parents who have done nothing but love you...

Belle: I don't want to hear any more of this, okay? I know that I'm not the daughter-in-law you were dreaming for, and I never will be, but I am married to Shawn. If you don't like it, it's your problem.

Shawn D.: Thanks for coming, Dad.

Bo: Yeah. A strange place for a meeting.

Shawn D.: I wanted it to be here since it involves Philip.

Bo: What's going on?

Shawn D.: Remember that gun that I pulled off the guy behind the pub?

Bo: Yeah. Been bragging about it.

Shawn D.: Well, you can stop. It was a setup. Go on, Philip. Tell him.

Philip: That's ridiculous.

Shawn D.: He had the gun the whole time. In fact, he even paid those guys off to make it look like they were doing some shady deal so I'd fall for it, which I did.

Bo: Is that true?

Philip: Humph. I'm a little busy to be staging fight scenes at the Brady Pub. Where the hell are you getting this?

Shawn D.: Just stop lying and tell him the truth.

Philip: You got any proof?

Bo: Shawn, come here. Why would he do this? Huh? Why would he go to all the trouble? There had to be a reason.

Shawn D.: There is a reason. The reason -- look, forget about it.

Bo: It's Belle, isn't it?

Bo: Come on, man. You did the right thing.

Shawn D.: It sure doesn't feel like it.

Bo: You deserve credit for coming forward.

Shawn D.: And implicating my wife.

Bo: You told the truth. That's what matters.

Shawn D.: So, now what? What's gonna happen to Belle?

Bo: Don't worry about her. I'll do what I can to keep her out of this.

Shawn D.: All right. Thanks.

Bo: Yeah. But the two of you -- you got to talk.

Shawn D.: We will. Go on ahead. I'll be in, in a couple of seconds.

Bo: All right.

Hope: Belle --

Belle: I'm gonna go check on Claire.

Hope: [Sighs]

Bo: Whoa. What's going on?

Hope: I-I was just asking her about the meeting she had with Philip before the reunion.

Bo: Oh. Well, um, speaking of Philip, I was just at his office.

Shawn D.: Dad, what do you think you're doing?

Lucas: You said, "leave the country"? I can't do that.

Kate: [Sighs] Lucas, when Stefano finds out that you tried to kill his son, he's going to come after you.

Lucas: I'll never abandon my daughter.

Kate: What are you gonna do? Are you gonna take her to prison with you?

Lucas: If Stefano goes after my loved ones, I'm not gonna be 10,000 miles away.

Kate: Lucas, you can do a lot more for them that way than if you're locked up in prison.

Lucas: What do you want? Do you want me to spend the rest of my life on the run? Is that it?

Kate: [Sighs] Lucas, look. Go to Switzerland, okay? Go to Switzerland. You can visit with Will. You can lay low for a while.

Lucas: That's a great idea -- go to Switzerland, go skiing, visit some chocolate factories. You know what, Mom? I'll even send you a cuckoo clock.

Kate: I'm trying to help you.

Lucas: Don't you realize if I go AWOL what'll happen? Switzerland's the first place they'd look. Got any other ideas?

Kate: Go to Guam, for all I care. You just need to get out of Salem.

Lucas: I can't. It's not gonna work.

Kate: Your brother has the entire Kiriakis empire at his fingertips. It's no problem.

Lucas: Well, it's a problem for me, Mom, because I don't have a passport anymore. I'm stuck here.

E.J.: So, I had an exam this morning at the hospital.

Sami: I didn't know you had a doctor's appointment.

E.J.: I didn't. Actually, the police requested it. Normally I'd refuse that kind of thing, you know, just on general principle. But on this occasion, when they told me the nature of this particular test, I thought I should oblige them... especially when I found out they're bringing all this really kind of high-tech equipment all the way down for little old me.

Sami: Obviously you're very excited to tell me what the police wanted.

E.J.: Well, now, you would not believe what they can do with medical equipment these days. You know, Samantha, they are able to take a high-resolution digital image of the actual bullet that is inside my back. Isn't that amazing? So very soon, by extension, we are going to know for certain if that bullet came from Lucas' gun.

Sami: No. We're gonna know for certain that it didn't.

E.J.: You know, it's very sweet the way you stand up for him, but it's not gonna do him any favors.

Sami: E.J., he didn't do it.

E.J.: Oh, I'm sure he didn't, but...for argument's sake, let's just say that he did, shall we? Now, I am prepared to make you a deal that will guarantee Lucas' protection.

Roman: Well, I guess I won't have to go to the gym today. What's that you're looking at?

Marlena: Hope found this with John's belongings. Turn it over.

Roman: "This is a picture of you and me. Mama." Is this John?

Marlena: Why else would somebody send it to him?

Roman: Well, is this Daphne DiMera?

Marlena: No.

Roman: How can you tell? You can't even see her face.

Marlena: I know. Trust me. It's not Daphne.

Roman: Well, if it's not Daphne, who is it?

Marlena: I don't know. I was hoping you could help me find out.

Hope: Well, hello to you, too, sweetheart.

Shawn D.: I'm sorry, Mom. Can I just talk to Dad for a minute?

Hope: Sure. I'm gonna get some tea. Would you like some?

Shawn D.: No. I'm good.

Hope: Okay.

Bo: What's up?

Shawn D.: Dad, I need you to do me this favor and not tell Mom that Belle helped Philip plant that gun.

Belle: Okay. We're gonna go see Santa today. What do you think?

Hope: What's the matter, Belle? You look a little nervous.

Kate: Well, that won't be a problem. I'll get you a phony passport, but it is going to take me a few hours.

Lucas: Oh, great. Great. Then when I get caught, they can add another 10 years on to my sentence.

Kate: God, Lucas. I think we need to get you on a cargo ship.

Lucas: A what? Cargo ship?

Kate: A cargo ship in the Kiriakis fleet. That's what we can do. You won't need a passport. You'll be out of Salem. I'm gonna have to grease a few palms to make all of this go right, but...then you'll be in Europe and you can visit with Will. You can visit with Carrie and Austin. When Stefano dies, which should happen before too long, we'll find a way to get you cleared of all charges and you can come back. You can come back to Salem. This is only gonna be temporary. Should I make the arrangements?

Sami: E.J., what kind of deal are you talking about?

E.J.: It's very simple, really. All I need from you is... well, you. You live here -- exclusively here, immediately here -- and you live here as my wife, and that means you sleep in my bed, okay? That's also effective immediately. Now, in return... I will agree not to press charges against Lucas. That means that the state's case will fold. Lucas will go free. I will also make sure that my father doesn't retaliate. So... do we have a deal?

Sami: E.J., want to know what I think?

E.J.: Whoa.

Roman: Well, if that really is John, then this picture was taken quite a while ago.

Marlena: It's John. I know it is.

Roman: There's not a lot to go on.

Marlena: Well, wait a minute. She's got a necklace on here. Maybe you could track it down. It's fairly unusual. Just get the maker, and that might give you a clue, hmm?

Roman: You do realize this is next to impossible?

Marlena: For a detective like you -- detective extra ordinaire -- really?

Roman: Oh, come on. Come on. Flattery will get you everywhere.

Marlena: Is it working? Oh, good. Roman, seriously... you can do this. I know you can.

Roman: No pressure, though, right? Doc, tell me something here. Just what do you hope to find?

Marlena: His past. His future is lost to me. His past is all I have left.

Belle: I'm not gonna do this in front of Claire.

Hope: It's Christmas.

Belle: Yes, it is.

Shawn D.: If you tell Mom that Belle and Philip planted that gun, she's just gonna be more upset.

Bo: Your mom's got her reasons for being upset.

Shawn D.: Yeah, but it's gonna ruin Christmas dinner. I don't want everybody fighting. It's not gonna be fun, especially for Claire.

Bo: You're right.

Shawn D.: So you're not gonna say anything?

Bo: Well, I can't promise that, but I can promise there won't be any arguments in front of Claire, okay?

Shawn D.: All right.

Bo: There she is. I hear you're going to see Santa, huh?

Belle: Yeah. There's a tree lighting at Salem Place. You both are welcome to join us if you want.

Bo: Thanks. Uh, we'll try, but if we don't make it, we'll see you at Mrs. H.'s on Christmas, right?

Shawn D.: Yeah.

Bo: Let's go, Fancy Face.

Hope: [Smooches] Bye, sweetheart. Bye.

Shawn D.: Bye-bye.

Hope: Okay. I'm bursting. Out with it.

Bo: Belle and Philip arranged for Shawn to find Kate's gun back in the alley.

Hope: But I thought there were two other men involved. Weren't there?

Bo: Hired by Philip as a favor to Belle.

Hope: And what favor did he want in return?

Bo: Got a pretty good idea.

Hope: Yeah. So do I.

Sami: Uhh!

E.J.: Hey, you want your family to be safe, don't you? You want Lucas to be safe, don't you, sweetheart? Listen to me. All you need to do is honor the commitment that you made to me the night that we were married. Do you remember that one? Then you and I -- we get to spend the rest of our lives together very happily, as it was meant to be.

Sami: [Scoffs] I don't care what you think was meant to be, E.J. I am never sleeping with you ever again.

Roman: All right. So, I can keep this, right?

Marlena: Yes.

Roman: I'll have it copied, get it back to you. I'll see what I can find out about the necklace, but I'm not making any promises.

Marlena: I can't tell you what this means to me.

Roman: I think I know what it means to you, Doc. Now, tell me, what are you doing for Christmas?

Marlena: I don't know. I hadn't thought much about it.

Roman: Well, you're not gonna spend it alone. You're gonna come to Alice's.

Marlena: I don't think I'll be in much of a party mood.

Roman: Doc, you need to spend it with people who love you. John would want that, okay?

Marlena: I'll think about it.

Roman: All right. You think about it. Take care of yourself. And...I'll let you know what I find out about the picture.

Marlena: Thank you, Roman.

Roman: Later.

Belle: Claire's helping Caroline decorate Christmas cookies, and there's colored sugar everywhere.

Shawn D.: Oh, nice. We got to get a picture of that.

Belle: Um, let me ask you a question.

Shawn D.: Yeah, what's up?

Belle: Do you think your dad was a little distant with me?

Shawn D.: I didn't notice. All right. Fine. Yeah. A little bit.

Belle: Do you know why?

Shawn D.: Yeah. He knows about the gun. We went by Philip's earlier today.

Belle: What?!

Shawn D.: I'm sorry.

Belle: Oh, my God. Is Philip in trouble?

Shawn D.: He's gonna keep your name out of it. Don't worry.

Belle: Your dad knows that I helped Philip. You told him?!

Shawn D.: I tried to protect you, but Philip wouldn't cooperate. Listen to me. Everything is gonna be fine, all right? I'm gonna go grab the camera. I'll be right back.

[Cellphone rings]

Philip: Philip Kiriakis.

Belle: What the hell were you thinking?

Philip: You talked to Shawn.

Belle: I can't believe that you told Bo that I helped you plant that gun.

Philip: Hey, I didn't tell him anything. Shawn did.

Belle: Shawn said you did, that you wouldn't cooperate.

Philip: I didn't betray you. Your husband did.

Lucas: All right. I'll do it. I'll go along with your plan, but only if they match the bullet in E.J.'s back to my gun.

Kate: Lucas, of course.

Lucas: 'Cause there's still a chance they might not be able to do that.

Kate: But in the meantime, we need to be prepared, so I'm going to have all the arrangements made by Christmas.

E.J.: I mean, it's not such an unusual request, is it? I mean, husbands -- they do make love to their wives.

Sami: "Making love"? Is that what you call it? Is that what you called it when you raped me?

E.J.: Just say you'll do what you need to, to save Lucas' life and we both get exactly what we want.

Sami: Ha. An ultimatum. Gee, this seems so familiar. Oh, right, because you've done this to me before, when Lucas was trapped in that cabin. The only way you would save him is if I slept with you.

E.J.: There is a notable difference here. In fact, there's two. The first is that we're married. You're my wife. The second is that now you have all of these feelings for me, don't you?

Sami: If Lucas is in trouble, I'll save him myself.

E.J.: Samantha... don't be foolish.

Sami: You've got it backwards, E.J. I am finally wising up because I'm not gonna let you hurt me again. This ends...right now.

Billie: Lucas, I want to know. Are you about to get arrested?

Shawn D.: You got some guts to waltz in here after that stunt you pulled.

Philip: Maybe you should be honest with him.

Belle: It would be a total disaster.

Sami: We are getting this marriage annulled. I want out -- right now.
