One: Jack and Jennifer are still in the examining room, Jack paces
Where's Lexie? Let's hurry up and get this over with I wanna get out
of here (scratching his head)!
JENNIFER: Jack, she'll be here in a minute. Sh....
(gesturing) she's with Abe right now.
JACK: Yeah, I-I.... I don't even know why I really
have to do this....
JACK: (Cont.) I've never felt better
in my life!
JENNIFER: I want to make sure that you're okay!
I can only imagine what it was like (straightening out his sweater)
being trapped in that castle, Jack. And look at Abe. Look what happened
after he got home.
JACK: Right. I'll do it for Abe!
But mostly for you!
JENNIFER: Thank you!
smiles at him, the reaches up and kisses him. Jack responds for
JENNIFER: So did, ah, (hunching her shoulders) did
my imposter kiss as good as me?
at her and bends down to kiss her.
What? Ah, I'm sorry I can't joke about this, Jennifer. Not yet. I
mean, if I had any idea....
JENNIFER: No, no, no....
JACK: (Cont.) ....it wasn't you! I'm so....
JENNIFER: (Cont.) ....I know.... I know, of course
you didn't! And you know what, Jack, I know that that you would never
intentionally be unfaithful to me, it was a trap
by Tony di Mera, but it's over. This whole nightmare
is behind us now.
JACK: That's right (nodding) I'm back here, with
you where I belong. And Tony's dead, where he belongs! This time for
takes her into his arms and sighs in relief.
However, Tony is in fact very much alive and is manipulating Sami,
Lucas, Rex, Shawn, Brady and Philip.
Two: Jack and Jennifer are still waiting for Lexie, they are hugging,
Jack releases her to tell her something. He keeps his hands on her
shoulders and looks into her eyes.
Ha.... I've decided after this exam I've got a little surprise for
JENNIFER: (Grinning and adjusting his sweater) You
JENNIFER: What kind of "little surprise"?
JACK: (Being evasive) Weeellll, that's all
I'm going to say for now (running his hands up and down her arms).
JENNIFER: Jack Deveraux, what are you up to, you
have a funny look in your eye?
JACK: (Nodding, pursing his lips) Hmmmm (flashes
his yes).... you'll find out soon enough.
laughs, at that moment Lexie walks in. She then goes over to set
up for Jack's exam.
to keep you two waiting!
JACK: Oh, no!
JENNIFER: Oh, that's all right, we understand. Ah,
(gesturing) I guess I-I.... I'll (pointing) wait out there, while
you do what you have to do (going to walk out).
LEXIE: This shouldn't take long.
walks over to his wife, and throws his arm around her.
good, because I (hugging) hate to be separated from
my beautiful wife, (looking at Lexie) for even a
looks back at Jennifer, who is giggling at Jack's overt affection.
kiss, and Lexie smiles happily at their happiness.
(To Jennifer) I'll see you.
kisses her again, and Jennifer widens her eyes and flashes Lexie
a pleased grin. Lexie laughs. Jack watches as Jennifer walks out
the door, then shuts it.
(Smiling) It's wonderful to see you and Jennifer so happy.
JACK: (Walking towards her, putting his hands together)
I'm just thinking of something, I don't want to upset her anymore,
but there is something eh.... there's (pointing) something else we
need to do!
frowns, and Lexie looks at him, perplexed.
What do you mean?
(Frowns) I need to be tested for sexual transmitted diseases.
gives him a look.
Three: Jennifer waits in the lobby for Jack, Maggie comes up to
her. Jennifer is concerned that something is wrong with Jack, Jr.,
but Maggie assures her he is fine. Julie and Doug are watching him.
Julie wanted for her (Maggie) to spend some time with Mickey. However,
Bonnie called saying she needed Mickey. Maggie asks about her and
Jack's reunion. Jennifer said it has been wonderful, but she is
having difficulty comprehending the fact that Jack is alive and
they are together. Maggie asks about Abigail, and how excited she
must be about her dad being alive. Jennifer tells her is fine, and
is finally sleeping; she is thrilled that her father is back with
her. Maggie says this must be the best present ever. Jennifer agrees,
Abigail will never forget it for the rest of her life. Though Jennifer
sadly says that Abigail got her father back, and poor Chelsea has
lost both parents tonight. Jennifer then tells Maggie to fight for
Mickey, like she fought while she was a prisoner on the island.
Maggie vows not to like Bonnie win. She goes off to make sure it
will not happen.
Bonnie is with her daughter Mimi. Jan is in a coma after falling
and hitting her head. She hit it while arguing with Mimi. She had
awoken from the coma earlier and lied, saying that Mimi tried to
kill her. Bonnie and she are hovering over Jan's bed trying to get
her to recant. Tek is hovering around trying to find more information.
Four: A while later, Jack's tests are done. He is walking with Lexie
down the hallway, nervously waiting the results. He has his hand
on her arm, gesturing as he asks about the tests.
How did it go, every.... everything's okay?
LEXIE: Yes, yes, everything is okay! You appear to
be in excellent health...
JACK: (Relieved, putting his hands together) Yeah....
LEXIE: (Cont.) ....and there are no
signs of STDs.
JACK: (Throwing out his hands, even more relieved)
Ah, great! Go-od, good, ah....
about to say more but Jennifer turns the corner, and calls out to
JACK: (Cont.) ....good
JENNIFER: (Catching up to them) How did it go?
JENNIFER: Is everything all right?
LEXIE: Yeah, (smiling) everything went just fine,
he's, ah, health as a horse!
JACK: (Neighing like a horse) Hoouuyyhnhyy....
and Jennifer laugh [it seems as if it is an ad lib and that Missy
and Renée are laughing]. Jennifer is holding Jack's arm.
LEXIE: (Cont.) Um, listen I-I I (still chuckling,
having a hard time talking) let you on with your, ah, celebrating.
(Flashing a wise look) Okay?
LEXIE: Ah, ha.
is surreptitiously pulling what looks like a red scarf from his
sleeve. Lexie walks off.
Thank you, thank you Lexie.
turns towards Jack. He then pulls out the scarf.
JACK: Nothing up my sleeve!
JENNIFER: Except for that (laughing)!
JACK: (Smiles) Except for that, yeah.
puts it over her eyes.
(Cont.) Here's your surprise!
JENNIFER: Uuh, Ohh.
JACK: Well, this isn't the surprise, the surprise

What is it?

No, okay this way.

giggles, he opens the door, and motions to Lexie, as he guides Jennifer
inside. Once they are inside Lexie quickly walks over to a counter
and takes out a "Do not disturb" sign and puts it on the
Abe comes up and is annoyed because she has delayed so long. She
asks him for a truce.
Meanwhile, inside, Jack is still holding onto the ends of the scarf.
Jennifer is giggling.
No, this way, No, no, no (guiding her) this way. This way, this way.
(Stops) Okay, ready?
JENNIFER: (Still giggling) Okay, I'm ready! What
are you doing?
JACK: 1, 2, 3!
whips off the scarf, Jennifer's eyes are still closed she opens
then, gasping, her mouth wide open
JACK: (Smiling) Surprise!
scene cuts away before we see what the surprise is
Five: The room is dark. Jennifer is holding onto the scarf, she
turns to Jack, and smiles. He leads
her to a beautifully decorated table, with an orchid, lit candles,
and a set table. There are a string of lights around as well. In
the back, the curtain is drawn around the examination bed.
This is (gesturing) amazing! How did you do this.
(Jack picks up a remote) Well, I'd have to say (he presses a button)
It.... it helps to be married to a Horton in this hospital.
is heard, it is Kelly Clarkson's "Some Kind of Miracle."
Throughout the rest of the scene.
the portion of the lyrics we hear, I used her official website for
Prayed for an angel
To come in the night
And shine some sweet light on me
Found only strangers
Then you came to me
Just when I’d given up, you gave me love
My world was tumbling down
You turned it around baby
You, you’re some kind of miracle
You are, you’re a miracle to me
(Cont.) So I got my help.
JENNIFER: Oh, you "got your help" would
that help be Lexie Carver by any chance (laughing)?
JACK: Yeess! That would be Lexie Carver.
pours a glass of champagne.
Soo, I think Lexie would agree with me (handing her a glass) in saying
that we have alot to celebrate here!
pours his glass.
We certainly do, Jack!
JACK: For that reason, I want to make a toast. Ha....
(looking at her) A toast to you! And to our.... our
family! For saving my life, bringing me home (sighing)
both look at each other filled with love.
And a toast to you! For never giving
up on us! And for finding your way back home, again and again!
are filled with emotion. Jennifer clicks their glasses.
both smile and take a sip. Jennifer looks up at him.
How did I ever get so lucky to find
somebody like you!?
JENNIFER: (Shakes her head) Noo!
I'm the lucky one, Jack!
kiss passionately, and hold each other tightly
Six: It appears Jennifer and Jack have finished their dinners. He
offers her a plate of chocolate truffles.
Ahh (takes one and smells) ohh, Jack! (Laughs) I can't even believe
that you did this. I mean, you turned a hospital exam room into the
most romantic place in the world.
JACK: (Brushing it off) I just wanted to make this
homecoming special (smiles).
JENNIFER: Just you being home made it special, Jack!
But to have you and candle lit, and dinner, and....
and chocolate! I can't imagine (eating a chocolate
covered truffle) that can get any better!
JACK: There's more!
walks over to the curtain. He throws it back.

of lights. Jennifer gasp.
JACK: (Cont.) Madame!

I know we have Abigail for the night, and we said we weren't leaving

kiss, and moan. Jack stops and looks at her. She giggles.
I tell you, I've had my check-up, and everything's okay. Except for
one little thing.
JENNIFER: (Concerned) What, what little thing?
JACK: Well, I've got a little heart murmur, you want
to hear it?
(Concerned) You do?
JACK: Yeah, here listen....
JACK: It's ri.... right there.

I lo.... love y'ah. I love y'ah. I ah.... lo.... lo... lo lov....
JENNIFER: (Still giggling) I like your murmur
looks up into Jack's facing laughing, and smiled.
It's kind of a stutter, actually.
causes her to laugh even harder [almost seems that Missy is laughing
and Matt added the stutter part since it did seem he did a stutter
more than a murmur]. Jennifer continues to giggle as they fall into
each others arms and kiss. Jack moans as he picks her up, still
carries her towards the bed, and using her legs to move the rest
of the curtains. Jennifer giggles and then lets out a little shriek.
They fall onto the head rather hard.
That's all right....
is still giggling, as Jack rolls on top of her.
(Cont.) We're in a hospital, right?
JENNIFER: That's right.
JACK: Okay if we get hurt.
giggles, as their kissing becomes more passionate. They both moan
Seven: The shots are through a filter. The camera pans over the
candles and flowers. Jennifer falls onto the pillows, with a expression
of profound love on her face. She reaches out to Jack -- whom we
do not see yet. She pulls him towards her, her hands on his face.
Jack begins to sensually kiss her and she responds. We see Jack
seductively untie the strings to her blouse. He then slowly slides
her sleeve off her shoulder. He begins to kiss her arm, and then
up her shoulder, kissing the shoulder blade, then the shoulder and
finally her the nape of her neck. The shots are even more hazy as
we see them obviously making love.
are passionately kissing, and the Jack kisses her neck.
see their arms raised and closed together in a fist, apparently
representing the climax of their love making. Jack then lowers their
arms down to their bodies. Both are in the afterglow of their love
making -- after such a long time. Jack's eyes are closed, and he
has a content look on his face.

JACK: I've got a little something else!
reaches over the side of the bed, as Jennifer, smiles, watches,
her hand on his shoulder.
What?! Something else?
JACK: (Turning back towards) Oooohhh, yes!
gasps. Jack has a pin, with two hearts and diamonds around them.
One heart is solid, the other is the outline of a heart.
(Cont.) Iiitt's just (holding it for her to see) a little token....
JENNIFER: (Gasps) Ohhh....
JACK: (Cont.) ....to remind remind you how much
