Brady: Is johnny kidding with this script? How could marlena be okay with this?
[Knock at door] Lucas, hey.
Lucas: Hey, you got some time?
Brady: Yeah, come on in. So what’s up?
Lucas: What the hell are you trying to pull with chloe?
Chloe: Nicole, hey.
Nicole: Oh, hi, chloe.
Chloe: Oh, is something wrong?
Nicole: Yeah, it’s–it’s abe. He was shot tonight.
Chloe: Oh, yeah, I just saw a headline on the news as I was crossing to the lobby. Is he gonna be okay?
Nicole: Well, according to this, he’s in surgery, but he should make a full recovery.
Chloe: Oh, thank goodness.
Nicole: Yeah, he was right in salem park, and someone took a shot at him.
Chloe: That’s so scary.
Nicole: It is. You know, abe’s the closest thing I have to a father. I–I don’t know what I would do without him in my life. Anyway, what were you doing coming out of the inn?
Chloe: I’m living there for now.
Nicole: I–I thought you were staying with philip.
Chloe: I was.
Nicole: Oh, dear, what happened?
Chloe: He and I had a big fight, and I moved out.
Nicole: What was the fight about?
Chloe: What do you think? Brady.
Philip: That bastard. I don’t have time now. Whatever it is, it’s gonna have to wait.
Ava: So I guess you heard that the cops picked up jake dimera?
Philip: No, what happened?
Ava: You don’t know? Abe carver was shot today.
Jake: I’m going nuts in here.
Gabi: I know, but at least rafe let me stay with you. It’s the only upside to him being commissioner.
Jake: I just wish I knew what the hell was going on with the mayor considering everything that happened to him is my responsibility.
Gabi: Shh. Do not let rafe hear you say that.
Rafe: What am I not supposed to hear?
Gabi: Oh, is there any news about abe?
Rafe: Huh. As a matter of fact there is. Abe was transferred to the trauma unit at university hospital. They were waiting for him to stabilize before they took him to the or when his heart stopped.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Maggie: We haven’t officially met. I’m maggie horton. I’m an old friend of abe’S.
Paulina: Oh, yes–yes, of– of course. Yeah, abe told me about you. You’ve–what–what a fine person you are.
Maggie: Well, that’s lovely to hear. That’s very nice coming from a wonderful man like abe. I heard what happened, and I wanted to–to offer my support. Is he okay?
Paulina: Oh, maggie, our precious abe.
Jake: Oh, my god. Abe’s dead?
Rafe: Technically, yes.
Gabi: What does that mean?
Rafe: He flatlined. They tried to revive him, and, well, finally they did. He’s in surgery now.
Jake: Oh, thank god.
Rafe: Well, why would you tell jake that abe was dead?
Rafe: Has it slipped your mind that I am a cop, okay? I wanted to gauge his reaction.
Gabi: Oh, well, did he pass your little test?
Rafe: Well, I’m not sure yet.
Jake: You had a chance to talk to him?
Rafe: No, I haven’T. He’s not allowed to accept visitors until tomorrow.
Gabi: So he didn’t tell you what happened.
Rafe: No, and in fact, I was hoping to hear that from you. But you realize your best option is telling the truth, all of it?
Gabi: He’s innocent. You have nothing on him.
Rafe: Yet your boyfriend here, he was at the scene of the crime. His fingerprints are all over the gun that was used to shoot abe. So I’ve got plenty on him.
Philip: What reason would jake have to shoot abe carver?
Ava: I don’t have a clue, but it sure does screw up our plans with jake and gabi, though.
Philip: Kind of hard to hold zanetti’s death over jake’s head if he’s already in jail for shooting abe carver.
Ava: And gabi is not gonna sign gabi chic over to us.
Philip: Because carmine’s not a threat to jake.
Carmine: I wouldn’t be so quick to say that if I was you.
Brady: What happens between chloe and me is none of your business.
Lucas: Philip and i were in the square last night, and we saw you on chloe going in the salem inn together. And you were carrying her suitcase for her very gallant–
Brady: Well, hey, I’m just that kinda guy.
Lucas: Are you also the kinda guy who spends the night with another man’s girlfriend?
Nicole: So what was the fight about?
Chloe: Well, philip punched brady.
Chloe: Yeah, he’s acting like a maniac. I feel like I’m back in high school.
Nicole: Sounds beyond adolescent to me. Please tell me you broke it off with him.
Chloe: I did not, but I do feel like we shouldn’t be living under the same roof, and realistically I moved into the kiriakis mansion so I could get back on my feet after my gunshot wound, but now I don’t–i don’t really have any reason to be there, you know.
[Phone rings] Oh.
Chloe: Do you need to get that?
Nicole: No, it’s no one important.
Ej: Hi, nicole, just wondering if you’d be interested in having dinner with me tonight? Perhaps the third time’s a charm, and in the interest of avoiding interruptions, you could come here. I actually seem to be home alone.
Kristen: Guess again.
Ej: What are you doing here?
Gabi: Jake must have touched the gun when he found abe. That’s the only reason his prints could be on the gun.
Rafe: You wanna get kicked out of here?
Gabi: Of course not.
Rafe: Then keep quiet. Now, you didn’t just happen to pick up the gun, did you?
Rafe: No, because, you know, it’s registered in your name.
Gabi: Yes, but–
Jake: Gabi, I made this mess. It’s up to me to clean it up. I’ll tell you everything I know.
Rafe: Good plan.
Gabi: This is good for him, not good for you. Don’t–don’t say another word. You know that he is allowed to have an attorney present. You know that.
Rafe: Yeah, maybe you should use your one call to lawyer up instead of calling gabi, because she’s really not helping you right now.
Jake: Gabi, he’s gonna talk to the mayor in the morning. He’s gonna find out everything that went down no matter what I do right now. You want the whole story? I’ll give it to you from the beginning.
Philip: How’d you get into this house?
Carmine: Some stiff in a monkey suit opened the door for me.
Philip: Henderson wouldn’t let you come in here.
Carmine: He didn’t want to. I had to lean on him a little bit.
Ava: You’re not even supposed to be in salem. What are you doing here?
Carmine: Nice place you got here.
Philip: Answer the lady’s question.
Carmine: You two both owe me.
I’m here to collect.
Brady: I’m good friends with chloe. That’s why I was helping her move into the salem inn.
Lucas: Yeah, right.
Brady: I’ve been more than respectful of her relationship with philip.
Lucas: Except when chloe tries to put distance between them, then there you are. You’re always there, right? You’re sleeping in the same bed with her on a business trip. You’re helping her move out of his place. Come on, man.
Brady: Nothing, nothing happened between chloe and me either of those times.
Lucas: Philip is your flesh and blood, brady. He deserves better from you, and you know it.
Nicole: Oh, okay, thank you. Thank you so much. So abe is now out of surgery and in icu and in stable condition.
Chloe: Oh, that’s a relief.
Nicole: Yes, it is.
Chloe: So why are you being so mysterious about that last call that you had before you called the hospital?
Nicole: I wasn’t being mysterious. Okay, fine, fine. It was–it was ej. He invited me to dinner.
Chloe: Oh, and I’m assuming the answer is no?
Nicole: I don’t know.
Chloe: Then why didn’t you take his call?
Nicole: Well, because last night at dinner–
Chloe: You went out with him last night too?
Nicole: Yeah, but I did something a little underhanded.
Chloe: Underhanded? What did you eat an extra bread roll?
Nicole: No, seriously. I-I-I truly did something underhanded. I let–I let steve johnson hack into ej’s phone.
Chloe: What? Why?
Nicole: Because steve is on some mission to track down kristen, and I pray to god that he finds her and throws her behind bars for the rest of her miserable life.
Ej: Kristen, you do know you shouldn’t come within a thousand miles of salem.
Kristen: Yeah, well, I had to see you.
Ej: You’ve been on the run for months. Why now?
Kristen: Well, there’s something I have to do. That. I order my groceries online now.
Paulina: I am just such a mess, as you can see.
Maggie: Well, you’re entitled, and–and so abe, is he gonna be okay?
Paulina: Thank god; he just woke up a few minutes ago. I told him how grateful we were to him for fighting his way back, told him that we loved him. And he–he said it right back.
Paulina: He said “love you” right before he closed his eyes again.
Maggie: Oh, paulina. Oh, I am so relieved to hear this.
Paulina: [Exhales] I was so scared, maggie. Even though abe and I, we haven’t known each other for very long, but he–he’s become such an important part of my life.
Maggie: Well, from what I’ve heard, he feels the same way about you.
Paulina: [Chuckles] Yeah, which makes me very– a very, very, very lucky woman and surprised really, because I never expected to find love at this point in my life.
Maggie: Well, that does my heart good. I’m just so glad that abe too has found love. ‘Cause he has so much to give. That I know.
Paulina: Yes, he does.
Maggie: Well, I-I-I wished that I could see him, but I-I suppose it’s better for me to just wait.
Paulina: Probably–probably at least so he’s a little bit stronger. Yeah, my–my daughter is in there with him now. I mean, my–no, my niece, lonnie, she–I’m sorry. I don’t know what I’m saying.
Maggie: Well, you’ve been through a lot.
Paulina: Yeah, not as much as poor abe has, though.
Maggie: Paulina, do they know how it happened? I mean–I mean, how he got shot, who shot him?
Paulina: Nope–nope, nobody knows. Nobody knows yet, but you just wait till I get my hands on whoever’s that is to blame.
Gabi: But there’s something that you don’t know. Philip is trying to find dirt to use against jake.
Gabi: Because he wants to blackmail me into signing over gabi chic to him.
Rafe: Okay, what does this have to do with abe? And I thought that I was talking to you.
Jake: Okay, it’s like gabi said, philip’s trying to dig up dirt on me to use against her. So he looked up an old coworker of mine in philly.
Jake: His name’s carmine.
Rafe: Carmine what?
Rafe: Okay, is carmine mobbed up?
Rafe: What’s he have on you?
Jake: Nothing. But philip convinced him to go on record saying I took out a guy we both knew.
Rafe: Yeah, what’s his name?
Jake: Jed zanetti.
Rafe: So in addition to the attempted murder charges that you’re facing here, you’re also wanted for murder in another jurisdiction?
Gabi: He told you he didn’t do it.
Rafe: Did I not tell you to keep quiet or you’re getting kicked out of here?
Jake: All right, look. Carmine is trying to pin zanetti’s death on me, and philip is more than happy to help him do it.
Rafe: What does all this have to do with abe?
Jake: All right. So I called carmine to come to salem, have a sit-down. I was hoping maybe I could reason with him.
Rafe: Oh. Was he reasonable?
Jake: No. So I–i sort of threatened him.
Rafe: Ahh. So that’s why you had your gun.
Jake: Yeah, but man, I wasn’t gonna hurt him. I just wanted him to go away. Leave us alone. Carmine knew I was bluffing.
Gabi: He knows that jake’s no killer.
Jake: Carmine, he wrestled the gun away from me, and that’s when abe walked up. He saw what was going on. He sized up the situation, tried to intervene. That’s when carmine turned on him and shot him point-blank.
Rafe: Hmm. Yeah, then what happened?
Jake: Carmine dropped the gun, and he ran. I stayed and called 911.
Gabi: No, he also gave abe cpr, which I think saved his life. Now, if he shot abe, do you think he’d really stick around to do that? He is telling you the truth. You know that.
Philip: If you think you can shake me down for more money you’re dreaming.
Carmine: I’m in a mess because of you too. You wanted me to finger jake for offing jed zanetti.
Ava: What kind of mess?
Carmine: Jake, he got word to me that he wanted a meeting. So I showed up.
Ava: Without clearing it with me?
Carmine: We figured it wouldn’t be a problem, but the little sob started waving a gun around. After that, things got a little out of hand.
Ava: How out of hand?
Carmine: I grabbed the gun. Some guy walks in out of nowhere. He ended up getting shot.
Philip: A guy you shot is the mayor of this town, you idiot. Jake’s in jail for shooting him.
Carmine: I’m aware.
Ava: Okay, so who did shoot the mayor, carmine?
Carmine: It was the gun. It just went off. It was an accident.
Philip: You shot abe carver?
Carmine: It was not my fault he caught a bullet. The way I see it, it’s your problem.
Lucas: So philip sent you here to fight his battle for him?
Brady: He doesn’t even know I’m here right now.
Luc you know what? Chloe is–is probably the best thing that’s happened to him in a long time. And from what I heard, you had your chance with chloe, and you blew it, right?
Brady: Lucas, I was in a committed relationship. I couldn’t tell chloe that–that I wanted her as much as she wanted me.
Lucas: Great, great. Good for you. You finally figured out that kristen’s no good. But it doesn’t give you the right to steal philip’s girlfriend.
Brady: Let me ask you something. Have you–have you asked chloe what she wants? All right, I didn’t think so. I mean, how could you face her, right? Sami didn’t want ej to find out the two of you had slept together, so she talked you into romancing chloe as a cover. I don’t think you cared about chloe’s feelings then. I sure as hell don’t think you care about them now, lucas.
Lucas: Listen to me. I’m not proud about what I did, okay? But we all know why sami did what she did, because of kristen, because of your girlfriend. What did she do? She kidnapped chloe and threw her in the trunk of my mom’s car. And then what, gets shot by jan spears? Face it, man. As long as kristen’s out there, you’re a walking death threat to chloe, and you know it.
Chloe: Why is steve johnson trying to track down kristen all of a sudden?
Nicole: I don’t know, and I don’t care. I just want him to find her and lock her up.
Chloe: Okay, then why are you feeling guilty?
Nicole: Well, because I–I don’t like going behind ej’s back. But I don’t feel one bit of guilt about outing kristen, because I don’t owe that bitch anything for what she did to me.
Chloe: You’re not gonna get an argument from me. As far as I’m concerned, I hope steve is slapping some handcuffs on her right now.
Ej: You risked your life to come back here and slap my face. Why?
Kristen: Don’t tell me you weren’t in on it.
Ej: In on what?
Kristen: I have been off the grid for months. And then all of sudden I get a message that steve johnson is breathing down my neck. I barely got out ahead of him.
Ej: Then why in god’s name did you come back here?
Kristen: Because it turns out he traced my location from the phone number I gave you. Oh, I have risked everything, everything to tell you that sami betrayed you. And I did it because I trusted you.
Ej: Do you really think I would ever give you up to steve johnson or anyone else for that matter?
Kristen: Oh, my god. Then–then if you didn’t, then how did he get my number?
Ej: I don’t know. May…
[Exhales] Bloody hell. I think I know how it happened. Want your clothes to smell freshly washed
Kristen: You know how steve johnson got my number?
Ej: I was having dinner out last night. Steve johnson and his wife came over to my table ostensibly to say hello.
Kristen: Why? They hate you?
Ej: Right? And that soon became apparent. Kayla johnson was sloppy drunk. She knocked over my wine glasses, splashed wine all over my shirt. I looked a mess, so I ran to the men’s room to clean up. I realize now I left my phone on the table.
Kristen: You idiot. Kayla probably wasn’t even drunk. Come on, they set you up. I can’t believe you left your phone alone with those nosy do-gooders.
Ej: Actually, they weren’t alone.
Chloe: So what’s the deal with you and ej? Are you guys, like, seeing each other?
Nicole: Well, we went out to dinner a couple of times. It is a little weird, ’cause he’s my boss.
Chloe: Not to mention your ex, so how’s it going?
Nicole: Well, the first time we ran into rafe and ava, and then ej and rafe had words.
Chloe: Over you?
Nicole: Over me, over sami. Oh, they just hate each other. And then there was that whole thing with steve and kayla that happened.
Chloe: Hmm, do you think that maybe all these interruptions might be a sign?
Nicole: Mm, ej’s message said that he wanted to do a do-over.
Chloe: And what do you think?
Nicole: I think that I want to give it a try, you know. Ej’s trying to put his life back together, and so am I.
Chloe: So are two just commiserating?
Nicole: Well, he– he did kiss me.
Chloe: Ah, nicole.
Chloe: Look, I know that you’ve felt lonely since eric left, but come on. There are more guys in this town other than xander and ej.
Nicole: Yeah, believe me, I know.
Chloe: What’s that supposed to mean?
Nicole: It means I need a distraction.
Chloe: From thinking about eric?
Nicole: Mm, it’s not that simple.
Chloe: What do you mean?
Nicole: The one person I can’t stop thinking about is rafe.
Rafe: Well, jake, your story has some believable elements. That would explain the additional prints that were found on the gun.
Gabi: What additional prints? You never mentioned additional prints.
Rafe: You know, if his story is true, you shouldn’t act surprised, okay? We weren’t able to match the prints, but now that we have carmine’s name, we might have the physical evidence, and his story might bear out to be true.
Jake: It is.
Rafe: Okay, any idea where carmine is now?
Gabi: Oh, if it were me, the first person I’d check in with is philip kiriakis.
Philip: You shot the mayor, and you think it’s my problem?
Carmine: Yeah, if it wasn’t for you and her, I’d still be in philly minding my own business.
Ava: We didn’t ask you to come to salem to shoot the mayor. We didn’t ask you to come to salem at all.
Carmine: I told you. Jake got me here. He pulled a gun on me, and I had to take it away from him.
Ava: You didn’t have to use it on the mayor.
Carmine: I was defending myself.
Philip: Nah, I don’t think the mayor is gonna see it that way, and I guarantee jake won’T.
Ava: You know that he’s in custody right now, right? He’s probably singing like he’s on broadway. And it’s all about you.
Carmine: Cops pick me up, I’ll have my own song to sing. So you two better take care of me.
Philip: What do you want?
Carmine: This place looks like it’s got a hundred rooms. Hide me out in one until this blows over.
Philip: I’ll have to think about it.
Carmine: Well, while you’re thinking about it, where’s the gents? It’s been a long day.
Philip: Out the door to the left, second door on the right.
Ava: So what the hell are we gonna do now?
Get ready. It’s time for
the savings event of the year.
Maggie: Paulina, I know what it’s like when you want to take revenge on someone who hurts the person that you love. But I think it would be better for you to let the police take care of whoever did this to abe and for you to focus on abe’s recovery and yourself.
Paulina: Yeah, you’re right. You’re right, maggie. You are right. I wanna let go of this anger and throw all my energy into helping abe to heal.
Maggie: Well, I hope so for your sake as well as abe’S.
Paulina: You are a very wise woman. And beautiful too.
Maggie: Thank you. So are you.
Paulina: Anybody ever tell you you look like bonnie raitt?
Maggie: Actually, you’re the first. Hmm, that’s quite a compliment. I am a big fan of hers.
Paulina: Oh, well, then hey, well, you know, maybe when abe gets back on his feet, we can all go to a monterey karaoke together?
Maggie: Oh, oh, I’d love that.
Paulina: We give them something to talk about.
Marlena: Mm-hmm, damn right.
Jake: When you talk to the mayor I swear he’s gonna back up everything I said.
Rafe: Mm-hmm. Oh, even if he does, you’re not off the hook. You brought a loaded gun and a mobster to the park. And because of you abe carver almost died.
Jake: What are you gonna charge me with?
Rafe: Well, I don’t know yet. But if you know what’s good for you, you will walk away from this criminal and never look back.
Chloe: You do have a thing for rafe. I knew it. Why didn’t you tell me?
Nicole: Because it’s–it’s complicated, you know. I wasn’t even clear about it myself, and rafe and I have known each other for so long. You know, he’s–he’s that guy that you–you turn to when things are awful. But I-I was married to the love of my life, or so I thought. Then eric kept staying in–in africa longer and longer, and I started to see rafe differently, but I was still married. And then my–my marriage blew up and then I-I was miserable and guilty. You know, by the time I sorted out my feelings, rafe was with ava. And ava is starting a new life and a new beginning. And she’s my friend too.
Chloe: Do you know what I’m wondering?
Nicole: Oh, I can only imagine.
Chloe: I’m just wondering if that night that eric told you he wasn’t coming home again if you would have run into rafe instead of xander.
Nicole: Well, I think rafe would’ve seen how angry and hurt and drunk I was. And he would have gotten me home and into bed alone.
Chloe: Because he’s an honorable man.
Nicole: And because he was finding something with ava.
Chloe: So you don’t think that he deserves to know how you feel about him?
Nicole: No. No, chloe, I can’T. I just I–I can’T.
Chloe: Hmm, so you’re dating ej instead. That makes a lot of sense.
Nicole: About as much sense as you wanting brady and dating philip.
Chloe: Brady was in love with kristen.
Nicole: Yep, not anymore.
Chloe: Look, I really–i really like philip. When he’s not acting like a jealous idiot, he can be really sweet and romantic, and we just have a really long history.
Nicole: So do ej and I.
Chloe: And he’s hurt you over and over again.
Nicole: But that’s because sami was in the picture, and now she’s not.
Chloe: For how long? Oh, come on, nicole.
Nicole: Look, you know, a long time ago I was so, so in love with ej. Maybe I can love him again.
Chloe: Mm, assuming it’s not doomed to begin with.
Nicole: What is that supposed to mean?
Chloe: What if he finds out that you double-crossed him and his crazy sister? I mean, he’s still a dangerous man. He’s turned on you before, and god knows if kristen finds out that you helped steve track her down…
Nicole: Kristen is in hiding. She is nowhere near salem.
Chloe: But if steve finds her, she won’t be in hiding anymore.
Kristen: Stop stalling, ej. Who else was at the table when steve hacked your phone?
Ej: It was a dinner date.
Ej: It was a business associate. Steve obviously duped that person into leaving the table.
Kristen: Hmm, and then he hacked your phone that you so stupidly left in plain sight. Oh, I don’t know who I hate more in this moment, steve johnson or you.
Ej: I suggest you turn your wrath on johnson, because right now I’m all you’ve got.
Kristen: Then you better hide me until all this blows over or I swear on my daughter’s life I will take you down with me.
Nicole: Look, I don’t care about kristen. She’s on the ropes, and she knows it. And she needs to keep running, because if they find her, they’re gonna throw her in jail and put her in a prison that she can’t escape from.
Chloe: Mm, we can only hope.
Nicole: And I–I think ej would understand why I did what I did if he finds out, but hopefully he won’T.
Chloe: Mm, then why aren’t you returning his calls?
Nicole: Because I was shocked about abe, and i just needed some time to think. But ej’s message sounded fine, and, you know, maybe I should take him up on his dinner invitation. Maybe I should go to his house right now.
Brady: Look, I hate what kristen put chloe through. It’s a big part of the reason why I broke it off with her, but will you do me a favor? Kristen’s daughter is asleep right down the hall. So if you’re gonna trash-talk her mother try to keep it down a little bit.
Lucas: I’m sorry, all right? I really am. I’m sorry, but–
Brady: Look, lucas, the bottom line is, you got–you got no right to point fingers at me, and neither does philip. And if he really wants to know what happened between chloe and me last night, then tell him to man up and come and ask me himself, or he can go to chloe and ask her. Either way, his choice. I’ve got moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Lucas: Why should philip ask you about anything? You’re just gonna lie to him like you just did to me.
Brady: Hey, you know what? Damn it. You–you and– you and philip, you can believe whatever you wanna believe. That’s fine. I’ll tell you what. You know what? Make his night. Go tell him to challenge me to a duel, pistols at dawn. Let’s do this.
Lucas: I never thought I’d say this, but you are one cold son of a bitch, aren’t you?
Brady: [Laughs] Get the hell out of here, man.
Philip: Will you please calm down? Jake’s the one who brought carmine to salem. You and I didn’t even know about it.
Ava: Oh, you think that gabi is gonna let jake take the rap? She hates my guts. Damn, I-I-I don’t know why I agreed to help you. I don’t know what I was thinking.
Philip: I thought you had nerves of steel.
Ava: Rafe cannot find out that I am mixed up in what happened to abe carver.
Philip: So what do you want to do?
Ava: We gotta keep carmine quiet, which means you need to do what he wants.
Philip: I can’t hide him here. He came through the freaking front door. You think henderson is not gonna tell my father about my houseguest the mobster? I mean, you know how to disappear people. You get rid of carmine.
Ava: All right, I will.
Philip: Call me when it’s handled.
Ava: Wait, hey, hey, where you think you’re going?
Philip: [Exhales] You started this. You handle it. I’ve got places to go, people to see.
Chloe: So ej wants you to come to come to his house for dinner, huh?
Nicole: Well, he said he’d be there alone.
Chloe: So you’re just gonna show up at his doorstep? You’re not gonna call him?
Nicole: Well, it’s not like he’s gonna be cooking on his own. Besides, I–I know ej. He likes surprises.
Ej: I can’t hide you here in this house. If you want to stay, you’ll have to stay in the secret room.
Kristen: Well, it’s not exactly secret anymore.
Ej: You saw to that. So there’s no good hiding place for you here. Damn it, kristen. I thought you were smarter than to flee to your family home. I’m sure steve johnson will be knocking on the door anytime soon.
Kristen: What do you take me for, an amateur? I-I left a bogus trail to keep him busy for months. Oh, god. I did. I did. Have you ever read “the purloined letter”?
Ej: The what?
Kristen: Edgar allen poe. The guy hides a letter in plain sight, and it works out great. Nobody would ever think that I’d come back here.
Ej: I’ll organize some bedding. I assume you still know your way to the wine cellar?
Ej: Where are you going?
Kristen: Brady’s, of course.
Ej: [Laughs] I’m beginning to think you’ve lost your grip. If brady sees you, he’ll turn you in.
Kristen: Brady is not going to see me. I didn’t come all the way back here without seeing my little girl. She’s all I have to live for.
Ej: Kristen, you’re making a big mistake.
Kristen: I just have to look at her. Just for a moment while she’s sleeping. No one will ever know I’m there.
Ej: [Sighs] I know I can’t change your mind.
Kristen: By george, I think he’s got it.
As a dj, I know all about customization.
Gabi: I–I love jake. Are you kidding me? You can’t just order me to leave him.
Rafe: Look at the stats on the man. He’s in the mob.
Gabi: Look who’s talking, mister I’m shacked up with jake’s ex-mob boss.
Jake: Gabi, it’s not–
Gabi: No, no, no, he needs to know the truth.
Rafe: You’re gonna go off on ava again? You can save your breath, okay?
Gabi: Oh, no, you think that all she does is have sex with you and make lasagna? Do you know why abe got shot? How did philip get in touch with carmine? It was your girlfriend, ava. She gave him that information. She is in this up to her neck.
Ava: Oh, took you long enough.
