May 1998: Bo & Hope are on a flight from New Orleans going back home to Salem. They talk about the bayou and her search for her missing past. The subject then changed and Hope reminded Bo of the baby he's carrying with Billie. Hope wanted to make sure Bo will take his responsibility to his new son or daughter.
BO: A daughter? I remember the day Shawn-D was born. [Chuckles] It was like- I remember it like it was yesterday and that was the happiest day of my life....with the possible exception to the day I married you. [Pause] Oh my God. It was....
HOPE: ....thirteen years ago today. Happy Anniversary, Brady.
[Hope forces a smile. Bo is saddened. He was silent for a moment.]
BO: Happy Anniversary.
[Hope tried to force a smile again, but tears began to fill her eyes.]
BO: I'll never forget the vows I made to you that day.
HOPE: Neither will I.
[Hope thinks back. Flashback to their London wedding in May 1985...]
BO: Hope, I know it's taken us a long time to get here. We even thought at times that we wouldn't. I know I had my donuts. I never thought I could have someone in my life that could make me so happy or make me feel so alive. You know how hard it is for me to tell people how I feel about them, especially people I care about. But today in front of all these people, I have no problem telling you that I love you. I know our lives aren't going to be sunshine and roses from here on in, but I'm going to try my hardest to keep our love alive. We've got something very special here. It's worth fighting for. I love you Hope.
[Hope stares out into space thinking of that time. Bo turns to look at her.]
HOPE: Our wedding seems like a million years ago.
BO: Yeah, but in some ways it's....like yesterday. [Smiles] I remember every word you said to me that day.
[Bo thinks back to that time. Flashback of their '85 wedding again...]
HOPE: Oh, Bo, I fell in love with you the first time I saw you but it's taken all that time to realize that what I felt then is nothing compared to what I feel now. Remember what we said to each other in New Orleans- "True love is the gift which God hath given to man alone beneath the heavens. The silver link, the silver tie, in heart to heart, in body and in soul can bind'.
[Flashback over. Hope smiles and remembers with tears that are now wet on her face. Bo is sad again.]
BO: I'm sorry, Fancy Face. I didn't ever meant for things to turn out this way for us.
HOPE: [Softly] I know.
[Hope turns her head away to face the window of the airplane. She exhaled gently while tears formed in her eyes again. Bo turns to look at her with guilt and pain.]
Later, Hope says that she must look a mess. Bo tells her she's even more beautiful than the day he married her. She smiles a bit as she digs through her purse looking for that silver compact she realized was missing earlier but had forgotten about it. They talked about searching for clues to her past again.
BO: I understand how you feel.
HOPE: How? You've got your past.
BO: Yeah, but I've lost the future I always dreamed of.
[Hope starts to tear up again. She lays her head against the seat and Bo touches her face looking really sad.]
1997: Bo stops to see Hope only to overhear Hope tell Franco what a good man he is to donate such a large amount of money to charity. Franco tells her it's nothing and gives her a bracelet in which she modestly rejects. He tells her he insists that she wears it. Franco leaves and Bo enters the room to Hope's surprise. Right now they sit and talk.
HOPE: Bo, did you see Billie while I was gone?
BO: [Sounding uninterested] Yeah. I ran into her.
HOPE: Then...I guess nothing was resolved.
BO: Hope, there is nothing to resolve. I love you, and only you.
HOPE: Then make me believe it.
BO: You still have doubts...and I have to dispel those doubts. [Pause] Hope, I want you in my life. I don't have much to offer you right now. I---I don't know that I'll ever have the money to do one of these things. [Showing her Franco's recognition certificate of donating a charitable fund.] Or buy you an expensive home. Or by you jewelry like this. [Lifting up her wrist that has the bracelet Franco just gave her.]
HOPE: Bo...none of these things matter to me.
BO: But you deserve them, and I want to be able to give these things to you. Right now, all I have is my heart...and my love. Totally and completely. I promise you I will do everything in my power to get the Fancy Face back, so that we can have the life we once had there.
[They look at each other for awhile, but there was silence. Bo leaves.]
HOPE: [Almost in tears.] I hope you can.
