Evan: What the hell are you talking about?

OrpheusI thought I was quite clear.

Evan: Clear? Didn’t even make sense. You said I had another son with jan spears. What does that even mean?

Orpheus: Look, thought I made it plain enough even for you, but okay. Jan spears gave birth to your son. She’s the mother of the baby. You’re the father. That’s it.

Evan: Can’t be.

Orpheus: Are you saying you did not have sex with that woman? It’s a sin to tell a lie.

Evan: [Sighs]

Jan: It’s just so cruel that they won’t let us see the baby. I thought I might finally get to hold him.

Shawn: You will.

Jan: Are you sure?

Shawn: What, you don’t believe me?

Jan: Of course I do. I know you won’t let them send me to prison without holding him first. Shawn, what would I ever do without you?

[Romantic music]

Ej: Babe, wait, wait. Are you sure this is what you want?

Belle: Make love to me.

[Knocking at door]

Jj: Hey.

Chad: Hey.

Jj: I can’t believe it, chad. I can’t believe abigail’s really gone.


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

[Soft orchestration]

Chad: There’s beer in the fridge.

Jj: Uh-huh.

[Clears throat] I’ll pass.

Chad: When’d you get in?

Jj: I flew in this morning with theo.

Chad: Have you seen your folks? How, uh… it’s a stupid question– how are they?

Jj: Pretty bad.

Chad: They came by to see the kids–I wasn’t here. I should go see them.

Jj: Well, they’re at the– at the funeral home making arrangements and–

[Knocking at door] I think that’s them now. I’ll get the door.

Chad: I will. Hey.


Jennifer: [Chuckles]

Orpheus: Come on now. Your romantic life can’t be so chock-a-block that you don’t remember whether you slept with her or not. She is a woman. Maybe that’ll set her apart– prick your memory, as it were.

[Door clicks open]

[Door closes]

Jan: Wow, I appreciate the privacy.

Evan: This is statesville. There’s no such thing.

Jan: You work here?

Evan: Yup. I pull down an 8 per hour. I’m goin’ up to 10 once I figure out how to work the floor polish here.

Jan: I like a man with drive.

Evan: I’m evan frears.

Jan: Jan, jan spears.

Evan: We rhyme.

Jan: Clearly, we were made for each other.

Evan: Cheer up, okay? This place isn’t so bad once you get used to it.

Jan: It’s not prison that’s got me down. I just lost the love of my life. It was the worst christmas ever.

Evan: Anything I can do?

Jan: Actually, there is.

[Tense music]

Evan: Okay, yeah. I did have sex with that woman.

Orpheus: And a new life was created. Oh, happy day.

Evan: [Sighing]

Shawn: Janet, what the hell was that about?

Jan: An expression of how much I love you.

Shawn: We talked about this. You know where we stand.

Jan: You’re the father of my baby. We belong together.

Shawn: Jan!

Brady: Whoa. Jan, it looks like you’ve made a full recovery.

When moderate to severe

ulcerative colitis persists…

Jennifer: Kids seem to be sleeping peacefully.

Chad: Go on–I’ll check on them in a little bit. Jj said you guys went to the funeral home. Sorry, I should’ve done that.

Jack: Chad, you be here for your children.

[Sighs] We’ll–don’t worry about anything else.

Chad: Thanks.

Jennifer: Sweetheart, sit, please. Um… so the service is the day after tomorrow, and the funeral director wanted to know if there was something that we wanted abigail to wear. I wondered if you wanted to pick something out.

Chad: Ah, I don’t–

[Chuckles] I don’t think– I don’t think I could do that.

Ej: That was wonderful. You are wonderful.

Belle: [Chuckles] Thank you. I mean not “thank you” for thinking I’m wonderful.

Ej: [Chuckles] I didn’t think that’s what you meant.

Belle: I meant…

[Clears throat] Thank you for a lot of things. You know, these last few weeks– few months–have made me feel really out at sea and alone. But not when I’m with you.

Ej: I think–I think we both want to shut out the outside world. But there’s also this real pull here that has nothing to do with running away. I want to be with you– get to know the real you.

Belle: [Chuckles] Well, when you find out, will you let me know?

[Both laugh]

Ej: It’s true. You come across as confident and straightforward. But you’re actually quite complicated. Like now, for example. You’re here with me, but something else is going on– something you’re not telling me.

Belle: [Sighs]

Ej: See? I am getting to know you.

[Both chuckle] So why don’t you tell me what it is? Trust me. Tell me how you feel right now.

Belle: Happy… and also very, very guilty.

Jan: What the hell are you doing here? No one asked you to come.

Brady: Shawn, do you mind if we talk privately? I think it’s important.

Chloe: Don’t worry about jan. I’ll stay here and keep her company.

Shawn: I’ll check back with you before I leave, okay?

Chloe: [Clears throat]

Jan: I don’t need company, okay? I need peace and calm. One’s emotional state is very important when one is breastfeeding.

Chloe: Mm, and one can drop the madonna act. You know that I know exactly what you’re doing.

Evan: You’re saying I got jan spears pregnant? We only slept together once.

Orpheus: Did you sleep through health class too? Once is all it takes.

Evan: Wait a minute. Even if I did get her pregnant, how the hell would you know?

Orpheus: Because I met ms. Spears myself not long after your little tryst.

[Suspenseful music]

Orpheus: Oh, didn’t know anybody was in here.

Jan: You can go ahead. I’m just waiting for some test results.

Orpheus: Oh?

Jan: I might be pregnant.

Orpheus: Is that right?

Jan: Fingers crossed.

Orpheus: And if the results are positive, that’s good news?

Jan: It would be like a dream come true.

Orpheus: Well, who’s the lucky father?

Evan: She told you it was me?

Orpheus: No. No, she said the father was detective shawn brady. Once upon a time, before jill said yes.

Ej: I knew it.

Belle: No, no, it is not that I didn’t want this to happen. It’s–this is probably gonna amuse you to no end, but I made vows and I promised shawn that I would never break them again, and I have.

Ej: Mm, and what about him? He slept with jan spears, knocked her up and moved her into your house and became her full-time caretaker. He vowed to stand by you through better or worse, or was there some special exemption in his vows?

Evan: She said shawn was the father?

Orpheus: Yeah, but it wouldn’t be the first time in that whack-job’s life that she lied. You got knocked up by a cop?

Jan: Not just any cop– detective shawn brady.

Orpheus: It’s too easy.

Jan: The love of my life.

Orpheus: Uh, lucky guy.

Jan: Was that supposed to be funny?

Orpheus: Realistic. I mean, it’s not like the two of you are gonna run off to some ivy-covered cottage and await your little bundle of joy.

Jan: You know what? You’re a jerk.

Orpheus: And you’re a stupid woman with a big mouth.

Jan: Why don’t you get the hell out of here? I don’t have to take any crap off of you.

Orpheus: Actually, you do. You have any idea who I am?

Jan: Some loser washing the floor.

Orpheus: My name is orpheus.

Jan: Oh.

Orpheus: Oh. You’ve heard of me?

Jan: Yeah, I’ve heard of you, and I don’t care that I told you. I want the whole world to know that I’m carrying shawn’s baby.

Orpheus: I know you do. I also know it’s not true. The truth is, you’re trying to pass off another man’s child as his.

Jan: You can’t know that.

Orpheus: I know everything that goes on within the prison walls, just like I know what’s going on in that twisted little mind of yours.

Jan: So you’re gonna rat me out?

Orpheus: No. I’m gonna help you.

Evan: So you’re planning on helping her pass off my kid as shawn brady’s?

Orpheus: Mm, not planning to. Mission accomplished.

Chloe: You know, I’ve never really had a high opinion of you, jan. But using your own child to get your hooks into shawn? That’s a new low.

Jan: Well, even though your opinion means nothing to me, you’re wrong. Having a baby has changed me and shawn. He senses that change, and look, I’m sorry, but I gave him a son, and every man, no matter what they say, wants a son. It’s not my fault belle wasn’t up to the task.

Chad: I haven’t been in that room since…

[Sniffles] I had to go in there with rafe, so–

[Sobbing] And, um…

Jack: Chad, chad. You don’t have to talk about it.

Jennifer: And you don’t have to deal with the dress either. Jack and I will take care of that.

Chad: Thank you.

[Somber music]

Jack: You stay with him.

Jj: Yeah.

Jack: You okay?

Jj: No.

Jack: Me neither.

Jj: [Sniffles]

Jennifer: Come on, come on. Have you–have you–have you had anything to eat?

Chad: No.

Jennifer: Oh, come now. Listen, listen to me. You have to take care of yourself, okay? You promise me you’re gonna take care of yourself. Okay, okay, good.

[Sniffles] Jack, let’s get this over with. Oh, jj, you make sure he eats something, okay?

Jj: Mm-hmm.

Jennifer: Okay? Okay. All right, let’s go.

Jack: [Sighs]

Chad: Ugh, they’re taking care of me. That’s not right.

Jj: No, it is right. They take care of you so you can take care of your kids. We all do whatever the hell we can to get through this.

Chad: All this pain–that look on your mom’s face, just– who would do this to us? No, you know? Who would do this? I assumed dust always stayed put.

Chad: It shouldn’t be like this, you know? I–I–I just keep–you know, I just keep thinking about the fact that the person who did this is walking around out there, you know, knowing that they got away with it.

Jj: So far–but just so far. We’re gonna find out who did it, and they will pay.

Chad: No, rafe’s been straight from the start. You know, there’s not much to go on. There’s some stuff that was stolen, but that could just be to make it look like a burglary. If that’s true, then whoever did this… then they wanted to kill her. You know, they set out to kill her.

Jj: Gwen?

Chad: No, gwen was at statesville, it couldn’t have been her.

[Sighs] You know, this was– I thought that…

[Sighs] I thought that it was over. I thought that we had gotten through all of this crap. It was supposed to be over. I told you she was happy. Okay? You know, we were happy. I…we were finally happy.

Jennifer: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

Now I understand why chad couldn’t come back into this room. Jack, I don’t know if I can do this.

Evan: Stop playing games. Just tell me what’s going on.

Orpheus: I already did. I gave my word to ms. Spears that I’d help her pass off your baby as detective brady’s, and that’s what I did. I heard the good news. You’re enceinte.

Jan: Huh?

Orpheus: Pregnant.

Jan: You bet I am, and once I start showing, I’m gonna call shawn’s insipid wife over for a little visit.

[Chuckles] She’s gonna have a total cow.

Orpheus: And you’re gonna have a total baby, just not shawn brady’S.

Jan: You said you weren’t gonna rat me out.

Orpheus: I’m not, I’m not. Don’t you think your detective’s gonna ask for a paternity test?

Jan: I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Orpheus: You’re gonna get to it sooner than you think, and you’re gonna need me to get you to the other side.

Jan: You know, I can’t help wondering what’s in it for you?

Evan: Good question– what’s in it for you?

Orpheus: Oh, you know me, I’m just a romantic at heart.

Evan: So you switched the tests for her?

Orpheus: You’re beginning to catch on.

Evan: And now shawn thinks jan’s going to give birth to his baby.

Orpheus: Mm. Did I not mention it? She already has.

Chloe: That is a stupid, offensive thing to say, even for you.

Jan: It’s the truth. Shawn and I, we have a son together. That’s an unbreakable bond. God has made us a family.

Chloe: Ha ha, god? God has nothing to do with it. Besides, you sold your soul to the devil. How does that even happen? I mean, you never had a soul to begin with.

Jan: I think you should leave and not come back.

Chloe: Aw, and I thought we were bonding.

Jan: And I’m going to tell shawn all of the horrible things that you’ve said to me. It’s not good for me to be upset. It’s not good for the baby.

Chloe: Listen, you can literally milk this situation for all it’s worth, but you know that deep down, this isn’t gonna turn out any differently than all the other stunts you’ve pulled over the years. Also deep down, you know that shawn will never stop loving belle.

Jan: But he might stop forgiving her. See, shawn knows that I’ll always be faithful. He’ll never have to forgive me for an indiscretion. But that’s always been an issue for our belle, hasn’t it? Philip, her little dalliance in maine? You know, I get so worried about belle. She gets so restless when shawn’s busy elsewhere. I hope that she’s found someone–I mean something– to occupy all those empty hours while shawn’s here with me at the hospital.

Belle: After the baby was born, I went to ej’S.

Chloe: Really?

Belle: Mm.

Chloe: You stayed there?

Belle: Mm-hmm, yeah.

Chloe: And?

Belle: And it was very comforting.

Chloe: Oh, my god, you slept together? No, I’m sorry. It’s none of my business.

Belle: No, its fine, it’s fine. But no, we actually didn’t, but we came close.

Jan: Maybe she could knit something for the baby.

Belle: Shawn was tricked into sleeping with jan. That’s not an adultery. This, this is.

Ej: No, it’s not. You and shawn are legally separated.

Belle: I’m not talking about a legal technicality. I’m talking about what marriage means–what commitment means–

Ej: Damn it, belle. What marriage? What commitment? He caved to that woman and basically told you that she’s calling the shots, and you had nothing to say about it. Again, what marriage? That is abandonment. You weren’t even living together, and he signed those separation papers willingly. You didn’t have a gun to his head.


Belle: He said that I filed those papers so that I could sleep with you.

Ej: [Laughs]

Belle: Maybe he was right.

Ej: Oh. Announcer: Type 2 diabetes?

Evan: She already had the baby?

Orpheus: That’s how I knew he was a boy.

Evan: Wait a minute. It’s too early.

Orpheus: He was premature.

Evan: Is he okay? You gotta get me back into the infirmary–I gotta see him.

Orpheus: They’re not there. They’re at university hospital.

Evan: She’s out?

Orpheus: That’s the whole point. I need her on the outside.

Evan: What are you up to?

Shawn: So if you’re trying to save our marriage, you should be talking to belle and not me. All right, the fact is, she has shut me out at every single corner. I mean, the fact that I thought I was making love to my wife, that meant nothing to her. The fact that–brady, I basically did nothing wrong. That meant nothing to her. So–look, if you’re trying to help us, you should not be talking to me. You should be talking to your sister.

Chloe: Um, that went well, did it?

Brady: [Sighs] He’s right.

Chloe: About what?

Brady: I need to talk to belle now.

Ej: You know, you and i had a very honest talk about our motives. We were both upfront that there was an element of sticking it to shawn and sami. But that was just an element. I’ve wanted you, belle, for a very long time, and I know you feel the same.

Belle: I do.

Ej: Then let’s stop talking about guilt, which is basically talking about them. I want this night to just be about us. I want to spend the night with you by my side, and I want your fabulous face to be the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning.

Chad: Now I know what magical thinking means. I keep going back in my mind, trying to rewind the tape, so that we left the night before to go to boston just like she wanted to before I talked her out of it.

Jj: Come on, chad, there’s no way you could’ve known what would happen.

Chad: Yeah, but I can still see it… your dad’s party, the kids running around like maniacs.

[Laughs] Me freaking out, and abby just laughin’… telling me that there’s nothing to worry about. I get to hear her laughing, jj. I can see her.

[Chuckles] That smile…

[Somber music]

Jack: Why don’t you go downstairs, and I’ll pick something out, and I’ll be right down?

Jennifer: No. No, I couldn’t do that to you. We’ll do this together. Fishing helps ease my mind.

[Somber music]

Jennifer: I was with her when she bought this dress on newberry street. She was staying with me because she and chad were separated.

[Chuckles] She wanted to go to lunch, go shopping, anything but mope around the house. She made me promise not to say chad’s name.

[Sniffles] Oh, when she saw this dress, she said, “chad would love me in this.” And that’s when I knew.

[Sniffles] She was ready to forgive him, and they were gonna find their way back to each other. She told me I was making much too much about a dress, but when we got back to the house, chad was there waiting for her.

[Sniffles] They went back to salem the next day.

Jack: Then that’s it. That’s the dress, and I think when chad is ready to hear it, you should tell him that story.

Jennifer: [Sighs]

Orpheus: I made a deal with ms. Spears. I help her dupe her detective, she helps me with a little favor.

Evan: What’d you tell her? How did you convince her you were willing to screw over your own son to help her?

Orpheus: Tell her? I didn’t have to tell her anything. She has no idea we’re father and son, just like shawn brady has no idea he’s not that baby’s father.

Jan: Chloe was awful to me. She said the most horrible things.

Shawn: I’m sorry–

Jan: No, you need to tell brady to keep her away from me.

Shawn: Okay, fine. I will tell brady to have her back off. But you need to listen to me, okay? You have to hear what I have to say.

Jan: You’re mad at me?

Shawn: No, jan. I’m frustrated. You should not have kissed me. You cannot turn this into something that it isn’T.

Jan: Shawn, I’m not trying to. When I kissed you, I found out something very important– that it’s not just my imagination– that you felt something for me too. I know that now.

From prom dresses

Jj: I– [Sniffles] I gotta say I feel a little weird being here.

Chad: Why?

Jj: I don’t know, maybe– maybe you want your brothers or something. I know that I wasn’t always a–

Chad: My biggest fan?

[Chuckles] You never thought that I was good enough for her.

Jj: I’m sorry.

Chad: You were probably right.

Jj: No, no, I wasn’T.

Chad: You know, the thing is, is– see, my brothers, they would probably just try to say the right thing. You knew her better than anyone. You loved her. They can’t understand how much I lost. You do.

Jj: [Sniffles]

[Sobbing] Look, I want you to know that I changed my mind. After a while, seeing you two together, I thought maybe he is good enough for her. Anybody who’s good enough for abigail is pretty damn good in my book. My parents only had one son. But I have a brother.

Chad: [Sobs]


[Somber music]

Jack: Well. We did it.

Jennifer: Thanks to you. Now we just have to get through the funeral.

Jack: We’ll do that the same way we just did this– together.

Jennifer: Yes, we will.

Belle: I can’t stay here.

Ej: Why not?

Belle: I’m just not ready, you know, for spending the night and waking up with you.

Ej: Okay.

Belle: Yet.

Ej: And I will hold onto that “yet.”

[Pensive music]

Belle: [Clears throat] I meant what I said. It was wonderful.

Ej: Good night, belle.

Belle: Good night, ej.

Chloe: I don’t think that you should go over there right now.

Brady: No, I need to talk to belle now to see if what shawn is telling me is true.

Chloe: No, don’t go–at least not tonight. Why don’t you wait until the morning or so?

Brady: Wait, wait, wait. Are you telling me that–

Chloe: I am not telling you anything.

Brady: Oh.

Chloe: Except you should not go over there tonight.

Brady: Son of a bitch.

Jan: You can deny it all you want, but I know you felt the exact same way I did when we kissed.

Shawn: Jan, I will not listen to this. You know what? I won’T.

Jan: We’re gonna be a family, shawn. You’re gonna come around. I just know it.

Evan: You knew I had sex with jan spears and didn’t tell me? You knew she got pregnant and didn’t tell me? You switched the paternity tests and you won’t tell me what you’re getting in return?

Orpheus: I know it may seem like I don’t trust you–

Evan: That’s putting it mildly.

Orpheus: But I’m in the middle of a high-stakes game. I need to keep my cards very close to the vest.
