ONE: PARIS, GRETA'S CORONATION; JACK, AND MOST OF SALEM.
Most of Salem is in Salem are in Paris, preparing to attend
Greta's coronation -- Bo, Hope, Shawn, John, Marlena, Belle,
Stefano, Lexie, Kate, Victor, Chloe, Mimi, Philip, the Moronis,
Sami and Brandon plan on gatecrashing, Austin, Greta --
and of course Jack and Jennifer -- plus all the nobility
of Europe (being played by the "nobility" of the
festivities have commenced, couples are dancing, when Jack
appears, in the disguise of a waiter; and still wearing
the fake mustache. He is carrying a tray of canapés,
which he nibbles on as he dances along with the music and
scans the room, obviously looking for Jennifer.
(Frustrated) Where are you Jennifer?
short while later, Jack is walking around, still trying
to find Jennifer. One of the royalty, Lord and Lady Sheraton
[played by Ian Buchanan and Leslie-Anne Down] come up to
him, wanting some appetizers, but Jack continues to nervously
munch on them, unsuccessfully searching for Jennifer.
SHERATON: Excuse me young man.
(Not paying attention) Yep. (realizing they want something
to eat) Oh.
SHERATON: (Indicating he would like some food) Do you
Ah, actually I do.... I mean, they're awful. I've been testing
them out.... it's part of the job. They're awful (trying to
get rid of them so he could continue searching for Jennifer).
It's better to stick with the vegetable tray in the long run,
that, Jack dances off. Continuing to scan the room for Jennifer.
A while later he is still searching, he comes upon John and
Shawn. So as not to be give himself away, he tries to avoid
them, furtively walking past them, using his tray of champagne
glasses to obscure his faces. John calls out to him, thinking
he is a waiter. Jack freezes, not knowing what to do. He then
just ignores them, and takes off. John wonders where Greta
got her help. Shawn does not know, he too is confused by the
weird waiter's behavior.

SCENE TWO: PARIS, JENNIFER'S HOTEL ROOM; JENNIFER.
is looking out the window. She talks out aloud, saying she
is not in the mood for romantic Paris, nor the Coronation.
She then goes to the phone to call someone.
I am sooo mad at you.
Hello, (on the other end) Jennifer Rose, (with a wise twinkle
in her eye, and tone) how's Paris?
Don't you "Jennifer Rose" me. Alright, you ruined
my trip to Paris by sicking Jack on me. Now just admit it.
You sent him here to find me, didn't you?
THREE: CORONATION; JACK AND THE LORD AND LADY SHERATON.
Jack meets up with the snob aristocratic couple again. Jack
continues to ignore them -- he seems to be ignoring his
job as waiter too. He continues to desperately scan the
room for Jennifer. Lord Sheraton picks up a glass of champagne
for his wife, but there are no more glasses for him.
(Trying unsuccessfully to get Jack's attention) Lord Sheraton
needs a glass of champagne.
(Annoyed by her interruption, continuing to ignore them, finally)
Yeah lady, we all need something.
That's LADY Sheraton to you young man. (Talking to
his wife) Come my dear (They walk away, haughty and with disgust).
then the head waiter arrives. He has seen Jack's less than
professional behavior, and is not at all pleased.
WAITER: (Stuffy)(stops Jack) You, You're here to serve
not to stare.
takes Jack's empty tray and replaces it with one with glasses.
Then he commands Jack to go back to work.
Vite, vite (snapping his fingers)
the head waiter) "vite, vite."
nearly bumps into Bo and Hope.
Don't want to see any Bradys right now, thank you very much
(He quickly walks away).
FOUR: JENNIFER'S HOTEL ROOM, ALICE'S KITCHEN; JENNIFER ON
THE PHONE WITH ALICE.
berates Alice for tricking her. Now that Jack is around
she cannot enjoy Paris nor the Coronation, no chance of
her finding romance. Alice in turn berates Jennifer -- though
it is obvious she is wise enough to realize that "the
lady dost protest too much, and Jennifer is not all that
upset that Jack is there. She tells Jennifer that Jack is
Abigail's father, and Abigail loves him and misses him so.
It would not take too much effort to meet him for a few
minutes for Abigail's own good, "Put your daughter
first," she tells Jennifer. After they hang up Jennifer
says, "Ouch," to Alice's remarks.
FIVE: THE CORONATION; JACK.
still has not shown up, Jack is desperate. He decides to
take things into his own hands.
(Thinking to himself) Jennifer's not here, and she
won't show unless I find some way of tricking her into it.
SIX: JENNIFER'S HOTEL ROOM; JENNIFER.
has not taken Alice's advice. She is lying on top of her
bed, reading a magazine and eating bon bons. The phone rings.
She is sure that it is Alice, so she is short with the caller,
"YES!!!". It is a strange man, but the
voice is obviously Jack's, trying to disguise it with a
fake, nasal French accent.
This is securité from the Coronation of (his accent
slips a little, and songs almost Swedish) La Princess Greta.
Yes, I mean oui.
There was a man here asking about you....
narrows here eyes, and is slightly frustrating, knowing
the Jack was trying to crash the party. She does not realize
it is actually Jack on the phone. She is not at all surprise
that Jack would try to meet her at the Coronation. She is
thought he seemed suspicious. So we took him to the Suerité.
Eh please, I have called you to say if you wish to come to
the ball, this man will not be here.
(Pleased, though is she really) Really, are you sure?
(Knowing that his rouse worked, is please) Oui, oui. Very
sure. The man is gone.
Okay, okay, thank you very much for that information!
to the person on the other end, it is Jack. He has
his finger to his nose, to make him sound nasal). He is
very pleased his trick worked. Jack is flashes a smug grin.
You are most welcome, mademoiselle.
in in Jennifer's room, she excitedly jumps up, "I'm
going to the ball; I'm going to the ball," she exclaims.
In a short time she is wearing a beautiful light rust color
gown, with jewels, and her hair is pulled back. She is ready
to go to the ball, not realizing that Jack is in fact there.
SEVEN: THE CORONATION; JACK AND THE HEAD WAITER.
The head waiter notices that Jack still is screwing around
and not working. He points out to Jack that another couple
has been waiting for their champagne.
Where have you been? People have been waiting for their (giving
it a French pronunciation) Champagne.
(Annoyed by the head waiter's interruption and the couple)
God forbid, the rich will be thirsty for three minutes....
(adding sarcastically) or sober (with that he walks
Uh, uh, uh (grabbing Jack by the arm) don't make trouble.
(he taps him on the chest) Get busy!
Okay, keep your shirt on, I'm going.... I'm going.
does not watch where he is going and trips in front of some
of Greta's orphans. They laugh and clap, "a clown,"
they want more. Jack is not at all amused.
(Sarcastically with a phony high pitched voice like the little
girls) (Hahaha) More.... more.... Hahahahaha, thank you. Thank
you. (Sits up on his knees, putting his arm around him) I
tell you what don't you go over there (pointing) and laugh
at those clowns too (They leave), thanks (Jack sighs, slightly
depressed)Oh, I am a clown (he gets up). Same old tired
tricks that got Jennifer sp upset. Maybe I should forget trying
to talk to her. (Frustrated) I don't know.
EIGHT: CORONATION; JENNIFER, HOPE, AND BO.
Jennifer finally arrives, and she spots Bo and Hope. They
all hug, surprised to see her. She then tells them how she
was almost staying in her room. She tells them how Alice
set her up with Jack, but she has heard that though Jack
did try to gate crash the party, the security called and
told her they had picked him up. Then they talk about how
wonderful they look, and compliment each other on their
gowns, which someone in Salem made, for both of them. Hope
kids her about finding a dashing aristocrat to dance with.
She is not sure, but just then a man comes up and asks her
to dance. She agrees.
short time later, Jack is wandering around, still searching
for Jennifer. He then spots the man, who had been dancing
with Jennifer, kiss her hand. Flustered he pushes the tray
into the chest of a man, spilling some champagne on him.
He tries to clean it up, but is too distracting watching
Uh, Gotta.... gotta.... gotta, gotta go (He gives the man
the tray) thanks (and rushes off).
man dancing with Jennifer wanted to get more romantic. Jennifer
thanked him but told him she is a mother who lives in Salem.
That is not for her. She turns and bumps into someone.
(Embarrassed) Oh, oh, gosh, excuse me. I'm sorry (she has
a look of shock on her face, she sees it is Jack, and gaps)
is wearing white tie and tails, looking very handsome; but
still wearing his false mustache.
( Jack has a smug look on his face) What are you doing
here? You're not suppose to be here, I talked to security
they said they threw you out.
(Talking over her, using the same accent he used on the phone)
You thought security got rid of that nasty Jack Deveraux,
oui? (pleased with himself) I Scammed you Jen [Yes,
he said "Jen" not Jennifer]; scammed you.
I just thought it wouldn't stop you to dance with me.
a expectant and smug Jack Deveraux look, knowing she wants
to dance with him as much as he wants to dance with her.
stares at him. Angry, but with an underlying pleasure, she
looks at his face, and there seems to be a hint of desire
to kiss him.
