Joxer and Meg both sat on the foot of the bed, he looked around. Meg giggles as she crosses her legs, he's confused.

JOXER: Meg, what am I doing here?

MEG: Same thing you always do here.

JOXER: No, I mean I went to sleep in my bedroll.

MEG: Joxer?! (Gets up) You had a dream about them again. There was nothing you could of done, they are dead go on with your life. (Changing clothes) I don't like playing Xena anymore for you, now that she's dead.

JOXER: Xena's dead?

MEG: Yes! (Sighs) Her and the blonde. Remember?

JOXER: Gabby?! (Sobs) H... How?

MEG: The Romans... What do you call it when you die on the cross? (Joxer is silent) Well at least Caesar got his too.

JOXER: Wait? (Scoffs) They lived through that I remember that. (Meg shakes her head) Yes! Yes, they did.

MEG: No! You married Lilla, but you still come by for...

JOXER: I'm married to Lilla?! Um, something is wrong!

MEG: Yeah, with you. Now go home, I gotta go to work and your in my office. (Brushes her hair) I'm worried about you.

Joxer heads towards the farm house, he makes it there to find Lilla in the bed waiting for him. She kisses him wildly.

LILLA: Mom and dad will be gone for the rest of the week. (Smiles) Are you thinking what I am?

JOXER: Sorry Lilla I... I...

LILLA: What is wrong with you?! (Sighs) We are married!

JOXER: That's what I'm having a problem with.

LILLA: I know you loved my sister Gabby, but she's gone and you married me soon after. You said you loved me too.

JOXER: Lilla, am I losing my mind?! (Lays down) I feel so tired... So sleepy.

Joxer rolls over and goes to sleep. He wakes up in the woods and looks around. Xena is asleep, he walks around and sees Gabrielle swimming in the water naked. He's so happy to see her he jumps towards her in the water.

GABBY: Joxer?! Get out of here I'm na...

Joxer kisses her like crazy, she pushes at him and he stops.

GABBY: Have you lost your mind?! (Slaps Joxer)

JOXER: No I'm in love with you, Gabby.

GABBY: Huh?! (Scoffs) Joxer what?! You love me?

JOXER: Yes! I love you Gabrielle. (Smiles)

GABBY: Oh my gods! (Sighs) I had no idea, you felt this way about me Joxer. (Pauses) Um, could you go so I can dress and then we will talk this out over dinner.

JOXER: Sure. (Walking away singing) Joxer loves Gabby...

GABBY: No singing about it!
