Mariah: Okay, bowie.

[ Sniffles ] I’m gonna have to say goodbye now, alright? Okay. Alright. Shh, shh.

[ Sniffles, sighs ] I’m really sorry about ending the baptism celebration like this, but…I just think it’s best for everybody if tessa and I move out.

Abby: Why don’t you just think this through? I-I can call your mom. I can have sharon come over.

Mariah: No, please, don’T.

Abby: You can talk to her.

Mariah: Don’t! Don’t! Please. You have got to stop taking care of me. You need to take care of dominic now.

Amanda: Nate. Hi.

Nate: Hey.

Amanda: Thank you so much for meeting me. Um, I know that you’re probably really busy with the new job and everything. I just really needed to talk.

Nate: Yeah. No problem. Okay, so, you said your mother is ill.

Amanda: Yes. Her doctor says that she has an atrial fibrillation. She’s been having shortness of breath, fatigue…

Nate: Uh-huh.

Amanda: …Heart palpitations.

Nate: I’m sorry to hear that. I know dealing with unexpected health issues can be quite stressful.

Amanda: Yes.

Nate: But I hope her doctors told you this is completely treatable with the right care.

Amanda: And that is what I’m worried about — the right care. So, I want to make sure that my mother gets the best treatment as soon as possible.

Nate: Yes, of course. That goes without saying.

Amanda: I’ve been alone, you know, most of my life, and I’ve gotten pretty used to that, right? And when I found out that I had a family, I found out that i also lost my twin sister and my father, but I still have my mother. And we should have many years to get to know each other.

Nate: Okay.

Amanda: So I really need those years, okay?

Nate: Okay. Okay. Okay.

Amanda: Okay.

Nate: Relax, okay? Take a deep breath.

Amanda: [ Exhales sharply ]

Nate: It’s gonna be okay.

Adam: Sharon. Um, do you have a minute?

Sharon: Um…

[ Cellphone ringing ] No, actually, I — I have to take this. Hi. Um, I’m so sorry I left so many messages. I just wanted to see how the baptism went, and I’m really sorry I had to miss it. We had a staffing issue here today, but it’s totally handled now, so I’m on my way to the reception.

Mariah: Don’t come. It’s over anyway.

Sharon: Oh. Okay. I won’T. But I’m worried about you. It must have been an emotional day.

Mariah: I’m — I’m okay.

Sharon: You don’t sound okay.

Mariah: I’m not okay, but i just need to get out of the chancellor house right now. So I need to be on my own so i can come to terms and process everything.

Sharon: Okay. I understand. Um, but I’m here for you whenever you’re ready to talk, and you can count on me. I just want to support you through this.

Adam: Everything alright?

Sharon: Well, um… it turns out my plans have changed, so I will have some time to talk.

Adam: Good, because we would like to try this again. Connor?

Connor: I’m sorry.

Adam: Go on.

Connor: About what I said the other day and for running off like that. That was wrong.

Sharon: Thank you, connor. And there’s really no need to apologize.

Adam: I want to make it very clear that sharon is not to blame for what’s happening between me and your mom. You understand that, don’t you?

Sally: So, I was out for a run when I saw this kid in the park, all alone, looking upset. And when I got closer, i recognized him from the pictures in adam’s office.

Chloe: Oh. It was connor?

Sally: Yeah. So I texted adam so that he wouldn’t worry. Of course I didn’t let on to connor that I had done that. And I just played it cool, and i asked him if I could sit on the bench with him for a while.

Chloe: What was he doing alone in the park, and how did adam let that happen?

Sally: Well, I didn’t want to pry, but from what I gathered, he ran off when adam gave him some pretty upsetting news. And if I were to bet, it was probably about his parents splitting up.

Chloe: It’s possible.

Sally: Yeah. I mean, my heart really went out to the little guy. It just triggered something in me. I…was surprised at how easily I connected with him. I… I don’t know. I…even cheered him up a little bit, actually. Who knew I had that — what do you call it — mom gene?

[ Both chuckle ] Did you know some deodorants may not last all day?

Nate: Listen. From what you told me, naya’s condition is treatable.

Amanda: Yeah.

Nate: And I’m going to get you the best possible options for doctors, alright? I know you’re worried, but trust me, you’re gonna have plenty of time to spend with your mother.

Amanda: Yeah. I’M… I’m sorry, nate. I — [ Chuckles ] I’ve just been trying to fight this fear in the pit of my stomach, you know? I feel like I’ve been so stressed out lately that I don’t have enough resources for the challenges that keep coming up. And then that makes me even more stressed out.

Nate: It’s a common cycle.

Amanda: And then my grandfather’s trial is coming up. I’m so worried about how that’s gonna impact naya.

Nate: Yeah, no doubt. I’m sure it will affect you and your sister, as well.

Amanda: And then there’s devon. I’m worried about him, too. He’s been having all of these conflicting emotions ever since dominic was born, and I — I feel —

Nate: Okay, amanda, you cannot take everyone’s problems onto your own shoulders. You have to off-load some of that to the people who care about you. Let’s try to solve this one thing at a time. First, let’s get naya the treatment she needs.

Amanda: Thank you, nate.

Nate: No problem. But promise me you will stop spreading yourself so thin. Take time for yourself, or you might not be able to help the people you love.

Adam: What do you say, buddy?

Sharon: I know how confusing this must all be for you. But I want you to know that i want only the best for you and both of your parents. Can you believe that?

Adam: And you remember how helpful sharon was to you in the past? You were having difficulties, and sharon knew just what to do to help. And same for your mom. Sharon helped her, too.

Sharon: And I want to continue to help you. So you can come to me whenever you need someone to talk to. Okay? Is that cool?

Connor: Cool. Thanks.

Sharon: Alright, come on. Sit down here and I’ll go get you a snack and we can chat for a while about anything you want to.

Connor: I guess that would be okay.

Adam: [ Clears throat ]

Chloe: Well, that is the sweet and wonderful thing about kids. They bring out a side of you you never knew existed.

Sally: Yeah. I mean, I always saw myself as, like, single-mindedly career-focused, with a hot love life on the side, of course. I just wonder how working parents juggle having a career and kids the way that you do.

Chloe: Yeah. Trust me. It’s, um — [ Laughs ] It’s not easy.

Sally: Yeah. Well, I always admired people who do it all, but, I mean, single parenting? Wow. Like, when I realized all that adam has to handle on his own…

Chloe: Okay, well, connor does still have a mother — chelsea — who’s my best friend and who is also going to be our co-worker when she decides to come home, so…

Sally: Yeah. Nope. I have heard your message loud and clear — stay away from adam. But, you know, seeing him as a good dad made him ever hotter.

Chloe: [ Coughs ]

Sally: [ Chuckles ] I’m just kidding! I gotcha.

Chloe: Very, very funny. I’m going to warn you again, though — don’t be fooled by the fact that he has a great kid ’cause that is all chelsea.

Sally: I don’t doubt that chelsea is a wonderful mother. But she’s away, and adam is having to do double duty. And I respect anyone raising children these days, but to do it on your own, it’s big props.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] Alright. Car is loaded and ready to go. But it’s not “goodbye.” It’s just “see you soon.”

Abby: Mariah, are you sure this is what’s best for you right now? I mean, exiling yourself from the baby?

Tessa: Okay, “exile” is a big word. We don’t live that far.

Abby: I wanted this to be a safe place for you. I hope it still can be.

Mariah: I appreciate your concern, abby. Really, I do. But like I said before, I think this is the right answer. And I’m gonna continue to pump milk, so don’t worry.

Tessa: Oh, yeah. And I will personally deliver the bottles.

Devon: Are you sure that’s not gonna be too much for you right now?

Mariah: No. I-I — I want to be able to do that for dominic. It’s — it’s just being here around him all the time that’s — that’s the hard part.

[ Sniffles ] It’s why I have to leave, even though the last thing I want to do is hurt you, abby.

Abby: I know that. Whatever you need, that’s what we’ll do.

Mariah: [ Sniffles ] Alright. Bye.

[ Sniffles ]

Devon: See you guys.

Abby: Bye.

[ Dominic crying ]

Abby: Ohh, my little love, what’s wrong?

Mariah: [ Sighs ]

Abby: It’s okay. Mommy’s here. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Aww.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] Most bladder leak pads were similar.

Adam: Look, rey, it has been rough on connor hearing that chelsea and I are splitting up. I wanted sharon to talk to him, maybe give him some tools to help him cope. Really hope that’s not an excuse for you to get pissed off.

Rey: Not at all. As I told you before, connor and I became good buddies on our road trip. I care about him, and I’m glad you finally decided to be honest with him. The boy deserves to know the truth. And sharon will always help where she can.

Adam: Am I hearing this correctly? It kind of sounds like we’ve found some common ground here. Could it be that we can actually co-exist?

Sharon: How you feeling now?

Connor: Full.

Sharon: [ Laughs ] No, seriously, though.

Connor: I’m kind of sad. Lots of kids at school have parents who split up, and i always felt sorry for them. Now I’m one of those kids.

Sharon: It’s always really sad when parents separate. And I imagine it’s probably pretty scary, too, huh?

Connor: I don’t know what my life is going to be like. Who will I stay with? If I live with my mom, my dad will be sad. My mom already misses me.

Sharon: It’s not your job to take care of them. Why don’t you relax and let them take care of you?

Connor: But will they pretend not to fight when they’re around me? ‘Cause I can tell when they’re being fake, and that’s worse.

Sharon: Well, I can’t answer that, but I know when your mother comes back to town, you will spend equal time with both your mom and dad. And they are definitely not pretending that they love you because they really, really do. So, when you all spend time together as a family, that love — that’s all that matters.

Abby: I don’t know how this happened. We had agreements and plans. We covered all of our bases — or at least I thought we did.

Devon: No, we did. We — we absolutely did. We all went into this clearly, with good intentions.

Abby: I mean, we started out as this big, happy extended family living together. And now mariah can’t even stand being around me and the baby?

Devon: You got to know, abby, at the end of the day that a legal agreement is nothing but a piece of paper. It can’t predict how people are gonna feel. And mariah — she went through something that was really traumatic. We don’t know. That might have really changed things for her, being isolated like that.

Abby: Or maybe she would have felt that way even if everything had gone as planned.

Devon: Maybe. I think the best thing that we can do right now, though, is just give her time and give her the distance she needs to figure out how she fits in with dominic and all of us. At least she has tessa. I know she’ll take good care of her.

Mariah: I’m sorry. I just… I couldn’t go back to the apartment.

[ Door closes ] It doesn’t feel like home anymore.

Tessa: Hey, that’s okay. We’ve been looking for something bigger for a while. We can stay here until we find the perfect spot for us.

Mariah: A fresh start.

Tessa: Exactly. And in the meantime, we get to stay here, in this fantastic suite, with room service and a maid service. And there’s a spa downstairs. Um, do you want me to order some food?

Mariah: No, not right now. And, um… you don’t need to comfort me or treat me like I’m fragile. This separation — this is exactly what I needed, you know, so I can start to step away from the connection that I feel to dominic. I’m gonna — I’m gonna get better. I promise.

Tessa: Okay. But there’s no pressure.

Mariah: Yeah.

Tessa: Okay? No timeline.

Mariah: I need to prepare myself so that, moving forward, I can see the baby in the way that we all originally planned. Dominic is abby and chance’s son, and my feelings toward him — they need to be familial, not maternal.

Tessa: Familial?

Mariah: Yeah, it was the, um — it was the legal name they used in the contract.

Tessa: Oh. Well, you sound like you’re talking with your head. It’s your heart that I’m worried about.

Why hide your skin if dupixent

Amanda: Uh, thank you so much, doctor. I really appreciate you seeing my mother on such short notice. Yes. Yes, we will definitely be there. Thank you. Bye-bye. Hey.

Devon: Hey.

Amanda: I am so glad you’re home. Um, I have really good news.

Devon: What is it?

Amanda: I, um, spoke to all these doctors that nate recommended, and I think one of them will be able to help my mother.

Devon: Oh, good. I know this has to be hard for you ’cause you just found your mom and you’re finally getting to know her and then this happens.

Amanda: Yeah, I [Laughs] Kind of unloaded all of that onto nate. But he assured me that, um, my mother’s diagnosis is not life-threatening. So I just need to help her navigate this, you know, one doctor’s appointment at a time.

Devon: Well, I’m glad that you reached out to nate ’cause he’ll give you good advice.

Amanda: Yeah. I know. Um…I’m used to being on my own, you know? So asking for help — it doesn’t really come naturally to me.

Devon: I know that better than anybody, but you have to learn how to ask for support when you really need it, especially when there’s so many people in your life that are happy to help you. We just don’t know what’s going on with you unless you tell us.

Amanda: Yeah. Nate said as much. And, you know, it’s funny because I was just about to say those exact same words to you.

Chloe: [ Clears throat ]

Chelsea: Hi! I was just about to call you. You are never gonna believe what adam’s done now.

Chloe: What happened?

Chelsea: He told connor that we won’t be reuniting, and he had the conversation without me. Mm-hmm. Oh, and get this. And then he had connor talk to sharon, of all people. Sharon. Of course connor was upset. I mean, how did adam think his son was gonna react?

Chloe: Poor connor. That must have been so hard on him. But I hope you know that this is the best thing for you.

Chelsea: I’m just so angry over how adam has controlled and manipulated this entire situation. I should have been there for connor. We needed to tell him together.

Chloe: This is what adam does. This is what adam always does. So, the way I see it, the world has opened up for you. And now you can get on with your life without letting adam bring you down. And we can start kicking butt together at our fashion platform.

Chelsea: Yeah. Right. Uh, speaking of which, how are things going with that woman you brought on board at work — sally? Connor told me that she found him in the park when he ran away. He said she calmed him down. He seemed to like her.

[ Sighs ] I guess I should thank her.

Connor: That’s dad’s friend. We met in the park, and she was really nice to me.

Sally: Well, hey, you two.

Connor: Hi. Um, I don’t remember your name.

Sally: That’s okay because i remember yours, connor.

Connor: Tell sharon about getting a bucket of ice water dumped on your head.

Sally: [ Laughs ] I think most people have heard that one already.

[ Chuckles ] And for the record, my name is sally.

Chloe: I think sally’s talents lie more with design than with taking care of kids.

Chelsea: That may be, but she was good to my son at a time i couldn’t there. So I want to let her know i appreciate it.

Chloe: I’ll be sure to pass along your gratitude.

Sharon: Looks like you two have quite a rapport.

Sally: Yeah, we’re pals. Aren’t we, connor?

Connor: Yeah. You’re funny.

Sally: Well, I try.

[ Chuckles ]

Connor: Do you have any more embarrassing stories?

Sally: Dozens. You have no idea how many times I’ve made a fool of myself.

Connor: [ Laughs ]

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Adam: Sally, thanks again for spending time with connor the other day. He and I are heading back to the office shortly.

Connor: Can sally come with us? She works with you, right?

Sally: Yes, and I love my job. Actually, I was just headed back there, too.

Adam: Uh, well, let’s go then. Thank you, sharon.

Connor: Bye. Thanks.

Adam: Rey.

Rey: Mm.

Sharon: I almost hate to ask what you and adam got into out on the patio.

Rey: Surprisingly, it was quite civil. Adam seems to think we’ve reached a common ground. We’ll see if it holds. How’d it go with connor?

Sharon: Um…I think he’ll be okay.

Rey: You still seem concerned.

Sharon: Well, um, I have to wonder if sally’s enthusiasm about her job is really about the newman fashion platform or adam.

Rey: You think she’s got her sights set on him?

Sharon: Nick told me that she has a reputation for targeting wealthy men. Apparently, she did it in L.A., And she immediately made a play for jack when she got here. She’s the last kind of complication adam needs right now.

Rey: You think he’s interested?

Sharon: Well, he kind of said he’s not, but he’s lonely these days, and that makes him vulnerable.

Devon: You really want to ask what’s going on with me when you still got so much up in the air?

Amanda: Well —

Devon: Have you even thought about what you’re gonna do now that you’re not working for your family anymore?

Amanda: [ Scoffs ]

Devon: Hmm?

Amanda: Hmm?

Devon: Hmm?

Amanda: I have actually thought about that a lot lately.

Devon: Oh, okay. You gonna go back to chanccomm?

Amanda: Well, if you must know, my mother and imani — we’ve been talking about it when we were away on my trip, and that’s why starting my own firm went from an idea to a decision. I’m gonna go for it.

Devon: You are?

Amanda: Yes.

Devon: Well, congratulations. That’s fantastic.

Amanda: Thank you. And I won’t be going it alone. Imani is going to take the bar finally. She’s gonna get her law license, and she’s gonna come on board as my junior partner.

Devon: Wow. Look at that. That’s like a dream come true for you to have your own family business.

Amanda: And you know what will give me even more pleasure?

Devon: Hmm?

Amanda: Sitting side by side with my new partner/sister and my very healthy mother and listening to the verdict “guilty” being read in sutton’s case.

Devon: I have no doubt that that’s going to happen.

Amanda: And there it is.

Devon: What?

Amanda: That optimism and that never-ending support that makes you so special to me.

Devon: You know you can always count on me for both of those things.

Amanda: Well, um, you’ve been asking me questions since you walked through the door, and you’ve clearly avoided mine. Now it’s your turn to give me some answers about the baptism.

Devon: Okay. With everything you have going on, the last thing you need is to listen to me vent.

Amanda: Oh, I’m sorry. You see, I thought this was a relationship, you know, where we both benefited.

Devon: Okay. It is.

[ Both laugh ] I think I just get embarrassed to talk to you about this because you warned me before that situations like this can get messy.

Amanda: And that’s why i urged you to draw up the legal agreement — so that there would be no questions, no gray area.

Devon: Oh, I do know that, but I’ve been learning that, despite all of it, a contract doesn’t really account for how people really feel, you know? And you’re more than welcome to say “I told you so.”

Tessa: Hey.

Mariah: Hey. Thank you for sticking with me on this journey. I know it hasn’t been easy.

Tessa: Mm. Don’t ever try to hide your feelings or be brave, especially around me. You can count on me to help you make this transition as smooth and as painless as possible. Actually, scratch that. I know it can’t be painless because what you’re going through is freaking gut-wrenching. But I’m here for all of it, the good, the bad, the ugly. So bring it on.

[ Both chuckle ] We’re starting over. This is the next phase of our lives, and we are gonna get through this together.

I may have moderate to

severe rheumatoid arthritis.

Amanda: I will never say “I told you so.” Besides, I am talking to you now as your romantic partner, not as your lawyer. We need to be each other’s safe place, devon.

Devon: I mean, the baptism was rough. It was mostly rough ’cause of how much mariah was struggling.

Amanda: Yeah, I saw that at the reception.

Devon: Yeah, but after you left, though, she really let it pour out. She basically told abby that she doesn’t know how to not be dominic’s mother.

Amanda: [ Sighs ]

Devon: She thinks the only way to deal with it is to distance herself, so she says she’s gonna move out of the mansion. And she doesn’t know how she can comfortably fit in this arrangement as it stands.

Amanda: I mean, I’m not surprised. She’s losing someone that she loves.

Devon: I mean, she’s not — she’s not losing anybody ’cause abby’s made it very clear to mariah that she wants her in the baby’s life always.

Amanda: Nevertheless, it is a loss, devon. Mariah’s never gonna be able to love that baby the way that she wants to, the way that she loved him when she carried him and nurtured him for nine months, especially when they were trapped. She was his only protector. You know, I — I don’t even know how you cope.

Devon: Yeah, I don’t, either. And now, with mariah leaving, it’s got abby feeling guilty about loving her own child. And she’s having to deal with this still without her husband.

Amanda: You know, you are doing an awful lot of worrying about how this is affecting abby and mariah. But I want to know how this is affecting you. You told me about dominic’s birth. But how do you feel now? You know? You’re gonna get to spend time with him as his godfather.

Devon: Yeah.

Amanda: Yeah.

Devon: It’s — it’s confusing ’cause, you know, it felt good to stand up there in front of everybody and to — to commit to always being there for that little boy. It felt right. But it also felt strange.

Amanda: How so?

Devon: Because I’m — I’m his father. I’m — I’m dominic’s biological father, but I’m not his legal father.

Amanda: Well, as per the agreement, he will always know who are you. You’re his family. So dominic and you will be connected forever.

Devon: I know that. I do. But…I’m not gonna be the one that he calls “dad.” What does that say about me, that I wish that I could have that?

Amanda: It says that you care deeply about your friends and their child. And even though you know that you will never hear him call you “dad,” you also know that you gave him your whole heart. He’s so lucky to be so fiercely loved by you.

Abby: You were so good at your baptism, hmm? You must have felt so safe and loved. But why wouldn’t you? You were surrounded by all of your family, celebrating your spiritual beginning. Well, not all of your family. I miss your dad so much. But you — you haven’t even gotten to meet him. So you don’t know how to miss him. Maybe that’s a good thing. And now that I think about it, you probably really miss mariah. You two spent so much time together. And I am forever grateful to her for protecting you and bringing you into this world.

[ Exhales heavily ] Wow. The two of you were locked in that room, and you were the only person that she could talk to. That must have been so hard for mariah. We have to do something to help her through this. Oh, uh, maybe with some time, maybe she can be [Groans] A part of our lives, just like we planned. Mariah’s bracelet. She must be going crazy looking for this. I’m gonna call her.

[ Bottle thuds ]

[ Sighs ] No. She said she needed some time and space. So, if that’s what she needs, that’s what I’m gonna give her.

Mariah: You know, besides bowie, it was you that kept me sane while I was abducted. Coming home to you was the one goal that kept me from giving in to all the fear, all the loneliness that I was experiencing. I even sang some of your songs to the baby.

[ Both laugh ] Not as well as you, of course, but…it calmed me down. I think it calmed him down, too. I just hope he didn’t think i was too pitchy.

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: I’m sure he loved it.

Mariah: I even had a dream that you came and rescued me. It was so real.

Tessa: I’m glad that I could be a source of comfort and sanity this time. Usually it’s the other way around. Maybe we’ve found the perfect balance.

Mariah: I think you’re right. I think that’s exactly what this means.

Tessa: [ Breathes deeply ]

Here’s lisa…

[ Music plays ]

Amanda: What’s all this?

Devon: This is a celebration.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] What are we celebrating exactly?

Devon: Well, to start, you are opening up a new law firm, and I think that’s pretty special.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Yes, that is something to celebrate.

Devon: Right?

Amanda: Yes.

Devon: Thought so.

Amanda: Two?

Devon: Well, I was hoping there’d be a two…

[ Bottle thuds ] …Because I, uh — I’ve realized that you’re absolutely right. We are each other’s safe place. I’ve been really confused about my feelings lately. And you’ve just been nothing but supportive and understanding of me, completely, almost like you can really see me, like you can see my heart.

Amanda: You can see my heart, too.

[ Chuckles ] You know, I don’t know where i would have been without you during all my family drama.

Devon: Well, I know we’re both going through some uncertain times right now. But we’re also both helping each other navigate through it. And I really don’t know where I’d be without you. So, I was hoping that, since you were planning on putting some roots down here, that maybe you were tired of staying in that hotel room. And, uh — I don’t know — maybe you’d want to move in here with me.

Mariah: You, bowie, are gonna have the best baby book ever. It’s gonna be three pages at least dedicated to the time that you were kidnapped in utero.

Devon: I am in awe of you and how well you’ve taken care of yourself and this baby through this whole ordeal, mariah. Okay? You’re amazing. Okay, let’s bring this little guy into the world.

Abby: You are my best friend and my cheerleader, and you are this baby’s fierce protector.

Mariah: How does he look?

Abby: Oh, he’s perfect.

[ Chuckles ] He has the cutest little fingernails.

Mariah: You know, I was not sure that we were gonna make it out of there, and, you know what, we probably wouldn’t have if it weren’t for you. You kept me sane in there. You know that? I can’t believe how natural it feels, holding you. Do you want to know a secret? Yeah? Do you? I wish I could breastfeed you. Yeah. But I can’T. It’s in the contract I signed.

[ Sniffles ] Don’t worry, okay? ‘Cause that’s my milk. That’s my milk that you’re eating right now. It’s gonna make you strong. It’s gonna make you healthy.

Mariah: Tessa. Tessa!

Tessa: What? What’s wrong?

Mariah: Nothing. But I think I have finally figured out a way to heal and move on.

[ Bomb beeping ] Okay, driver, step on it. We can’t wait to go celebrate with our family and friends.

[ Engine starts ]

[ Explosion ] Brook lynn. What are you doing here? Hey, chase. Nice to see you, too. Come on in.

[ Baby whimpers ] Shh. Figured you would have been at jason and carly’s wedding. Yeah, it’s not like I wasn’t invited, but I was closer with sonny, so, I, uh — I decided to change my mind at the last minute. Quiet night at home with your daughter doesn’t sound so bad. Yeah, you must be a detective. Bailey and I barely get any time together with all the craziness that goes on in this house, right? I get what you mean. I’ve missed bailey since I’ve moved out. I’ve missed…a lot. Maxie! This is magical! This is gorgeous. You have done an amazing job. Thank you. I have never seen the garden look more beautiful. Carly is gonna love this. Well, even jason might notice.

[ Laughter ] You might be joking, but jason was practically gregarious today. Well, gregarious for jason. Ah, I think he is genuinely happy with carly, and that is all I want for him.

[ Glass breaking ] Buscema and novak? Bomb was intended for us. Spinelli and brick had it redirected. You knew about this? I got a heads-up… from a friend. Oh, my god. Was that carly and jason? What is keeping them? Are they already in jail? What? For what? No. Mm. Although, uh, recent events may cause the groom to avail himself of your services sooner rather than later. And will this said consultation take place at the pcpd? Quite possibly. Ugh. Hi. Is everything okay? Um… um, uh… uh, there was just an ex– explosion outside of all saints. A car bomb. Was it — was it carly and jason’s car? I’m not gonna do this right now. I gotta go to my wife and kids. No, I know I-I can’t stop you, but if you leave here knowing nothing else, know that I honestly love you. Don’t — don’t say that. No, it’s true. I love you. Don’t say it! Don’T… you don’t love me. You love mike. No. Mike is gone! But you were happy in nixon falls. I’m going to my wife! Do you understand me? I’m not gonna do this right now! No, listen, the doctor said you can’t leave here. Try and stop me!

[ Whimpers ]

[ Door slams ]

Sonny? Yeah. Welcome back. Well, don’t act so happy to see me. Believe it or not, I actually am happy to see you. Yeah? Can I give you a ride home? Yeah, I’ll even take one from you. Okay, well, there’s a car waiting right outside. It can take you to the tarmac, and I’ll call my pilot and let him know you’re coming. Thanks. Okay. And, uh, for what it’s worth, um, I’m sorry for what happened to you. Well, you’re not the only one. Hey. Sonny’s on his way home. What have I done? We have to make this quick. The fire department’s on the way. And the cops, too, I’m sure. Thank you for letting us know what novak and buscema were planning. Cyrus renault was pulling the strings. They tried to rope me in, and I pretended to go along. But I want no part of renault’s machinations. Yeah, well, you supported the corinthos organization after my husband died. We appreciate your loyalty. It won’t go unrewarded. I prefer working with people who aren’t sloppy, reckless, or in prison. Congratulations on your marriage. Now go dance at your reception, celebrate the love you have for one another. Thank you. You could have told me. Yeah, well, I wanted you to enjoy the wedding. Besides, I knew brick and spinelli were handling it. What do we do now? We just go to the reception. Did I hear that right? You’re actually going to go to our wedding reception? What if the cops show up and they pull you in for questioning? Then I should be where I’m supposed to be. So it’s an alibi. No, it’s a party for friends and family to celebrate our wedding. Besides, maxie said there’d be music, and I know at least one of us like to dance. Jason and carly are fine. Okay, so whose car did blow up? Uh, possibly the limo with, uh, mr. Buscema and mr. Novak? Well, what a coincidence that they should meet their demise right after the wedding of their chief rival. How did that happen? Uh, I-it might have something to do with cyrus renault. Thank goodness your mother wasn’t in the same car as her date. Well, now that we’re safely outside the house of the lord, I can tell you what I honestly think about your nasty little insinuation about my son leo. There’s no need. You’ve already communicated your opinions perfectly. Oh, communicated. See, that’s that word that you like so much. Ned tells me that you think there’s something wrong with the way my kid communicates. There’s nothing wrong with leo. I just picked up on something when leo sought me out at the hospital. Yeah, which should never have happened in the first place. Ned, olivia, I-I feel like this is something best worked out between the two of you, so if you’ll excuse me.

[ Laughs ] Okay, enough. What’s so funny over here? Olivia hired a stripper for carly’s bachelorette party. Yeah, and it ended up being brando corbin. My mom was covering my eyes as if I’d never seen anything like that before. And where have you seen something like that before? Okay, spinelli, are you ready for your emcee role? That is, unless you want to do it.

[ Laughs ] No. Oh, you’re cute. No, I confine my public speaking these days to the courtroom. Besides, I-I know spinelli will find the right words. Just not too many words, right, spinelli? I shall endeavor for brevity worthy of the groom himself. Speaking of the groom, if he talked carly into ditching this, I will not forgive him.

[ Chuckles ] What’s so funny? Oh, I just, um… you just seem so much like your — your old self, before — before peter’s betrayal? I-I just meant, I-I — planning jason and carly’s wedding was probably a welcome distraction. Well, I enjoyed it, and I’ll enjoy it even more if they actually show up.

[ All chuckle ] Did you come by for your bailey fix? Yes, and to give monica this to, uh, thank her for her hospitality. Well, you weren’t exactly a difficult houseguest. Are you feeling any better? I’m almost 100%. But I think holding bailey would help. Here you go, cookie. Oh, there you go, sweetheart. Come here, you. Yeah.

[ Mumbles baby talk ] Hey. Hey, do you remember me, sweet girl?

[ Whimpers and cries ] Oh, you don’t? I remember you. You’re just getting so big. You know, you used to look like your mama, but you don’t really look like her anymore. Matter of fact, you don’t really look like your dad, either. Yes. How are you doing? I’m fine. How’s phyllis? She’s with the doctor, but she’ll be okay. Thank god. Anna. Valentin. We went to the tan-o to find you, but it was destroyed. One of the firefighters told me I could find you here. Are you all right? Are you hurt? I’m fine. What are you doing here? You called me. And you said I lived at the metro court when you know full well that I live at the quartermaines’. So I took it as a sign that you were trying to give me a signal. Was I right? Was the fire at the tan-o anything to do with your call? You’ve always been so smart. Peter was with me. He forced me to call you.

Peter set fire to the tan-o when I wouldn’t help him find louise. He tried to kill me and my friend phyllis. I was just telling nina that phyllis is gonna be okay. Oh, good. Good. How did he find you? Unbeknownst to us, he was keeping tabs on maxie, and she came to visit me in nixon falls on her way back from texas. Did you not try to contact the police? You knew they were looking for him, right? He had a gun. He threatened me. He was with you the entire time? No. But he warned me if I tried anything, he would kidnap james. And we both know peter. We both know he’s hateful enough to do that, so… I called my aunt liesl. And she said that she was gonna deal with peter, but then… something happened, something went wrong. Have you heard from aunt liesl? We’re not sure what’s happened, um, either. Can I ask you — d-did you have another opportunity in which you could have alerted us or the police? I was in a tight spot. He was blackmailing me. Blackmailing you with what? You know, sometimes when she smiles, I can see you. Or is it valentin? I don’t know. What do you think? I just think bailey’s her own little person. Right, cookie? She’s a one-of-a-kind, just like her mama. Yeah. So I heard you went camping. Yeah. You know, I have to say I was a little nervous to take on the big outdoors, but, uh, it was actually a lot of fun. Oh. [ Chuckles ] I’ll take your word on that, if you’re into the whole nature thing. You’re not?! I, uh, am a fan of central park, my great-grandmother’s rose garden, and anywhere with chaises, cabanas, and cocktail service. Oh, you don’t know what you’re missing. Roughing it is one of life’s great joys. I’ll take your word on that. So are you back at the pcpd yet? Soon. Once I get a few personal things in order. You’re moving forward with the divorce from willow? Actually, I’m seeking an annulment because willow and i never really had a marriage in the first place. I’m sorry, chase. Don’t be. I wouldn’t trade that time for anything. You don’t have your speech memorized yet. You have been working on it for days. I know, I know. I just — I-I’m nervous. I want to make sure it’s right. Michael, you will be great. You truly are the best best man. Ma, I think vincent novak stood you up. Why? Could his business really be taking him that long? Is it me? No. Because I’m sure I wasn’t misreading the signals vincent was sending. Maybe you should just, um… …you know, uh, make up your mind that mr. Novak isn’t coming, that his business was all-consuming. Thought you could use a drink. What I could use is a bride and groom. Well, don’t look at me. I didn’t kidnap them. Do you think this is funny? Not anymore. ‘Cause it’s definitely not funny. Right. Jason is not known for his social flair. I wouldn’t put it past him to convince carly that they don’t need a wedding reception, a reception that I planned to the very last meticulous detail. Ladies and gentlemen, may I please have your attention? Please raise your glasses as I happily present carly and jason morgan!

[ Cheers and applause ]

And it’s yo-o-ou

hiding in plain sight

yes, it’s yo-o-ou

that sets my world right

and it’s you-o-ou it’s no jake’S. But it’ll do.

It’s always been you

blackmailing you with what? What has peter got on you? You know, it’s not important right now. All that matters is that peter is on the loose somewhere. Can you tell me everything you remember about the last time you were with him? He… he tied me and my friend phyllis up, and then he — he poured kerosene around the tan-O. He dropped a lit match, and then he left. Did he tell you where he was going? No, he didn’t, but I told him that you’re probably on your way. You think he’s headed out of nixon falls? I think he’s probably headed back to… …to port charles and back to maxie.

[ Gasps ] Valentin, you’ve got to stop peter. Stop him before he gets to maxie. Brook lynn: Excuse me. Did you just say that you were

glad you married willow? I was dying, brook lynn, fading fast, letting go, and then I heard her voice telling me to hang on. I heard the love in her voice. And it gave me the strength to survive. Wow. Yeah, wow. And willow loves me. Maybe not in the way that I want to be loved by her, but that commitment I heard in her voice — it was real. And that’s what brought me back, and I could never regret being with someone who brought me so much joy. You’re amazing. You are a much better person than I could ever hope to be. I don’t know about that. You remember how I was when I found out that michael and willow were sleeping together. You mean bitter and angry, almost gave austin the keys to the quartermaine kingdom? Yeah, I’m over it. Well, I’m not. Giving monica that gift — that was just an excuse to come by. The real reason I’m here is to say I’m sorry to you and — and your family.

[ Glass clinking ] Hey, uh, excuse me, everybody. If I can get your attention, I’d, uh, like to say a few words about the bride and groom. And I want to thank you all for coming and helping my mom and jason celebrate this amazing day. Well, today has been a day of firsts — the first time I’ve seen my mom this happy in a long time and the first I’ve, uh, realized that two people I’ve known and loved my entire life have fallen in love with each other. Now, jason, thank you for being my mom’s best friend and loving her the way that she deserves to be loved. And, mom, you are the most amazing mother in the entire world, and I am thankful every day that you found happiness, that after everything you’ve been through in your life, which is too numerous to list in one day, that they’ve, uh, finally been rewarded. And I’ve — I’ve never met anybody as strong as you are, as determined, or…

[Sighs] Has as much as love in their heart. Look, I’m — I’m the luckiest guy in the world to have you for a mother, and now jason is the luckiest guy in the world to have you as his wife. And we wouldn’t be here without you. We wouldn’t be here without each other, so… to family. All: To family.

Thank you. All right, so 911 got an anonymous tip about a fire across town from the tan-O. Sending firefighters on a wild goose chase, delaying their response. Exactly. So now the police are looking for peter based on nina’s accusations. Let me guess. They’re not having any luck. Well, no, but one of my wsb contacts managed to do a fast trace on peter’s 911 call and it got pinged off a tower at the intersection of highway 21 and route 7. Okay, I’ll drive. I would have gladly thrown this at your head when you found that document with those changes to my great-grandfather’s will. Why didn’t you? Well, as mad as I was for you betraying my family, there was a part of me that understood how angry and betrayed you were by michael and willow. Yeah, but the first thing you learn in school is two wrongs don’t make a right. The second that austin asked me to look for your great-grandfather’s papers, I should have shut him down. Well, I sure wish you had, because, uh, michael ended up giving the document to austin. You don’t agree with michael’s decision. Michael insists that transparency will be our friend, that the document is non-binding, that it is just a list of things that my great-grandfather was thinking about doing, and that the judge will rule in our favor, so… but you don’t buy that. And you’re not the type of person to sit back and hope for the best. I have a couple tricks up my sleeve. Meaning? Oh, don’t get your knickers in a twist, detective. Nothing you can arrest me for. Oh, maxie, thank you so much. This place is beautiful. I couldn’t ask for a better wedding reception. Oh, good. You — you like it? I mean, the flowers are okay? Jen elliott really hooked us up. And you like the cake and you love the music? It’s all perfect. It’s perfect. Thank you so much. But now I want you to go have fun. I mean, you are our guest, so go relax and enjoy yourself. Ah, looks like all of your worry, let’s just call it, was completely unfounded, ’cause everything turned out great. Cheers. Now you can rest on your laurels. Well, I’m not sure I know how to do that. Well, you did good. Yeah? I wasn’t — I wasn’t sure. Yeah, michael was incredibly nervous, but I told him he would be wonderful. Listen to willow. She knows what she’s talking about. And don’t let her go.

The love, love, love oh. Congratulations, my friend. You know, when carly first told me that the two of you were thinking about getting married, I knew right away it was going to work. You two are life partners in the very best sense of the word. And I wish you every happiness. Thank you, diane. And now I sense that you and mr. Spinelli have matters to discuss that I would much rather not hear. So I’m gonna see if cousin brando wants to dance. Uh, so no further news about the untimely demise of mr. Buscema and mr. Novak? Brick called on the way over here, and, uh, the police are on the scene. Well, I have full confidence that they will not find evidence of how the bomb was planted or who was responsible. I fear the authorities will want to question you anyway. Yeah, probably. I just hope they don’t crash the reception, as it were. I mean, frankly, it would break maxie’s heart. Oh! Oh. Oh. I have never seen a more beautiful bride. Aw. Or maid of honor. It’s great to see you so happy, mom. Oh, it’s great to be this happy. Gosh, after all these years that you and jason have known one another, and now you’re finally together. It’s ironic, isn’t it? I think it makes perfect sense. I mean, you guys have always been so close. It’s like you can read each other’s minds. You know what jason’s thinking right now? Hmm. That he’ll be glad when this is over? Yeah, you need to go rescue him, mom.

[ Laughing ] I think so. Yeah. Ah. Michael gave a nice speech. Don’t try to change the subject. You should not have been talking about my son with that quartermaine wannabe. Liv, all austin said was that he thought we should follow up with him about leo. And talk to him about a specialist. Obviously, the good doctor thinks there’s something very wrong with my son. It wouldn’t hurt to have leo checked out. Spinelli: Ladies and gentlemen, could I once again have your attention, please? Mrs. Morgan would like all the ladies to gather for the traditional throwing of the bouquet.

[ Indistinct talking and laughter ] Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re not gonna go try and catch the bouquet, are you? Uh, last time I checked, you and I were still married. Sometimes I wonder why. You want in on this bouquet thing? No way. I’m lucky I didn’t end up married to louise’s father. Peter. Yeah. Getting married is not on my agenda. Finding my daughter and seeing peter brought to justice — those are my top priorities. Okay. Well, I support you in that. Thank you. You’re welcome. Ma, go on, try your luck at catching the bouquet. Hey, maybe the next guy you meet will be mr. Right. Wrong. I am done with men. If they’re not standing me up, they’re trying to kill me. Too bad sasha’s on bed rest. We could put her to the test and see just how serious she is about you. Think she’d try for the bouquet? Spinelli: Everyone ready? Women: Yeah! All right. One, two, three! -Oh! -Oh! Hey, hey! -Wow! -Nicely done. Perfect. Nice catch. It practically landed in my hands.

[ Chuckles ] Well, I think that means that, uh, we have my mom’s approval if we ever decide to make it official again. Hey. Nobody is looking. Now’s your chance to make your escape. Are you — are you sure? Do you love carly? Are you happy with her? Very. Okay, then that’s all that matters, ’cause that’s all I want for you is to be happy. So go. Go now and start your life. Ah! [ Chuckles ] Thank you, monica. I love you. Aw.

Just take me home go on. Get out of here.

[ Coughing ] The doctor just told me you can’t leave. They want to keep you for observation. No, I have to warn maxie about peter. Well, I already tried calling her, and she didn’t pick up. What if peter has already gotten to her? We have to warn her. May I have this dance, my beautiful and brilliant maximista? You remembered. As if I could forget you promised me a dance.

From dirt and clay

roam the dark… hey, monica, uh… ah. …Can I catch a ride home with you? You’re not going with ned? Nah. Oh, I mean, I thought you two were kinda getting along pretty well. I thought… we’d get back together? Mm, yeah. Not anymore.

Like you josslyn, may I have this dance? I thought you’d never ask.

Best of the two

so I’m gonna hold on michael.

Gonna hold on yeah? I don’t believe that catching the bouquet is symbolic of anything. Well, maybe not, but it proves my mom has really good aim.

[ Laughs ] I just want to make clear that I’m not saying this because of any silly superstition. Okay, got it. No silly superstitions. So what are you saying? First time I married you was to keep wiley away from nelle. Mm-hmm. But the next time I marry you, if we decide to get married again, it will be real, like this wedding. Okay, confession time. Do I even want to know? Oh, you do. I was actually glad when you went all in on austin when you were mad at michael and willow. Who are you and what have you done with blq? No, really. Looking to get revenge on michael and willow for sleeping together — it showed me you’re human. So you used to think of me as a zen god of tolerance and compassion?

[ Laughing ] You wish. But, um, just that you could get down in the mud as easily as the rest of us. Thanks…I think. Not that you’re any good at being a bad guy. I mean, look how quickly I caught you with that document. Whole sneaking-around business — it’s not in your dna. Well, maybe you can give me some lessons. No way. I want you to stay exactly the way you are. Hey. What did the car rental company say? Car we saw on the side of the road was hired by a peter sinclair. Sinclair. That’s interesting. He’s using his father’s pen name. Yeah, that’s kind of sloppy, though — leaving your car behind. Why is that sloppy? He knew we were trailing him. He switched to a second vehicle. Or he’s being picked up. Maybe this is a rendezvous. So he’s nearby. I’ll go that way. I’ll go that way. Listen, I know you’re armed. I know you are. Keep your phone on. Anna. I’ll be careful. You be careful, too. Don’t worry about me. But if I see him, I’m gonna shoot him on sight. Um… so, uh, what’d you think of the reception? I, uh, had fun. I could tell. Yeah. Yeah, I, uh — I really liked michael’s speech. It was nice. He went a little overboard on how amazing I am. That’s why I liked it. We did it. We’re married. How do you feel? Like this is right. Me, too.

I have only loved… hi. May I? It’s okay, spinelli. I invited austin. I should dance with him.

[ Chuckles ] Ma? Here. Have a drink. To celebrate the new you. The one who doesn’t need a man in her life to prove that she is worthy.

[ Chuckles ] You’re right. I’m better than vincent novak and all those losers out there who think they can toy with my emotions.

[ Sighs ] Well… you’ve been boring holes in my back all night. Go ahead. Keep apologizing. I know it’s not my place to tell you how to raise your son. Did you ever let that stop you? Liv, I love leo as if he were my own son. So at the risk of driving us even further apart, won’t you at least consider taking austin’s advice and having that beautiful boy that we both love checked out?

Far too many times thank you. Thank you for my dance. Thank you for inviting me. I really appreciate it. This was fun.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Yeah. Oh. Oh, you know what? Um, you should grab us some cake. It’s from eckert’S. Best bakery in port charles. Hey, you got it.

[ Ringing continues ] Hello? Nina? Oh, thank god, maxie, you picked up. What’s wrong? It’s peter. He was here in nixon falls, and I think he’s headed back to port charles.

He’s headed back to you. I’m at the rendezvous. Where’s your op? No, I don’t have 10 minutes to wait! You said you’d get me out of here. Now, make it happen. Anna: Scheduling problems?

[ Gun cocks ] I wouldn’t worry. You’re not going anywhere. I’ll make sure monica gets her gift. Thank you. And thanks for listening to me. Yeah, of course. Besides, any conversation you and I have where you don’t arrest me, I consider it a win.

[ Chuckles ] All right. Hey, I will see you around, cutie pie. You’re gonna be quite the heartbreaker someday. See you later. Chase, wait. You don’t have to go. Why don’t you stay?

[ Exhales sharply ] I know you and trust you more than anyone, and I can’t believe how nervous I am. Hey. There’s no rush. We have the rest of our lives. This morning I told you if we got married, I was afraid that I’d fall in love with you. I was wrong. I was in love with you then, and I’m in love with you now. I love you, too.

Days of Our Lives Transcript

Days of Our Lives logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Julie: Thank you.

Kayla: Julie, I know how hard this is. I went through something very similar with my own mother. It was hard to watch her forget her loved ones.

Julie: But at least caroline had a reprieve the last years of her life. If doug has alzheimer’S… it’s just, all the days of our lives have been so wonderful. Years and years. Much more than most people ever get. I want more. I’m sorry. So selfish of me.

Kayla: No it’s not. Listen, I am not giving up hope, and you shouldn’t either.

Marlena: I’m sorry. Did you say–

Doug: That I locked her in on purpose? You heard that? You heard right. It was the most fun I had all week.

Marlena: I’m sure you don’t mean that. I think you’re just confused.

Doug: No, marlena. You are the one who’s confused.

[Laughs] I’m not doug. [Laughs]

[Disquieting music]


Johnny: What the hell? Grandma marlena was possessed by the devil?

Marlena: Of course you’re doug. You’re doug williams. I’m marlena evans.

Doug: I know exactly, exactly who you are.

[Deep voice] It’s been over 25 years, marlena. But did you really think i wouldn’t come back for you?

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]


Johnny: Possessed by the devil? Is that even a real thing?

Allie: If you’re looking for chanel, she’s running the counter while I take my lunch break. Or in this case, pastry break.

Johnny: Yeah, whatever.

Allie: Is this how it’s going to be? You’re going to stay mad just because I told the truth about you to chanel?

Johnny: You were right. I did hurt your friend. But I’m right, too. I’m not that guy anymore. So what do you say we just move on from this?

Allie: Just like that? You’re over how ticked off you were at me?

Johnny: If you throw in a pastry, maybe.

Allie: Why are you being so nice? Oh, I know. It’s because you want me to play mom in your little movie, right?

Johnny: Actually, mom may not get star billing anymore.

Allie: What do you mean?

Johnny: You won’t believe what I just read about grandma marlena.

[Eerie music]


[Knock at door]

John: Hi.

Abe: Hey!

John: Come on in. Come on, man.

Abe: Thank you.

John: What brings you by?

Abe: Well, you know, I was in the area and I thought I would just stop by and see if you and marlena would like to join pauline and me for dinner tonight at her place.

John: What–wait a–wait a minute, I can’t keep up. You and pauline are seeing each other again?

Abe: [Laughs] Uh, yes. Well, you know, I’m happy to report that we have worked through all of our differences with the… price town debacle. And we decided to start fresh.

John: Nice. Happy for you. Oh, and listen, dinner–dinner, yeah, that–that–you know, yeah, that sounds good. Let me just–let me–let me run that by doc. I’ll get back with you, okay?

Abe: Yeah, of course. Of course. Are you okay?

John: No, I’m not. I just started remembering a very dark time in all of our lives, one that I just wish would stay buried forever.

Eli: Hey, grandma.

Kayla: Oh, eli.

Julie: Eli!

Eli: Hey. Oh, I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to check on you and doug until now.

Julie: Oh, that’s all right, darling. I-I know you have an important job and you have the precious babies and–but shouldn’t you be at work right now?

Eli: No, I got someone to cover me in the meantime. But what–what’s going on with doug?

Julie: Well, it’s hard to say at the moment.

Kayla: Well, his tests were inconclusive. So he’s in a session with marlena right now. If anybody can diagnose him, it’s her.

Marlena: You need to stop talking like this, doug. This is just your–your mind playing tricks on you. And that’s why I’m here. I’m here to help.

Doug: Then you need to stop pretending that you don’t remember me. Hurts my feelings after everything that we shared. All those nights together at your penthouse. Desecrating st. Luke’S. Remember when john caught us red-handed?

Marlena: Oh my god.

Doug as devil: Not god, marlena, but just as powerful, which you know better than anyone. What can I du with less asthma?

Roman: Okay, granted. I did try to convince you more than once this year that I could make you happy.

Kate: I know. I remember it.

Roman: And I do recall that involv– I admit that your involvement with jake– it just… I never understood it.

Kate: Okay, well you know, most people didn’t understand it, and in hindsight, I… I really don’t want to talk about jake.

Roman: All right, fine. But I will say this. You’re too damn good for that jerk. Jake and gabi deserve each other.

Kate: Oh my god. Well, we agree on that.

Roman: Yeah. And back to you and me, it’s not like I gave up. The problem is, when I made my second pitch, I didn’t realize i was talking to kristen, who was pretending to be you.

Kate: Okay. Well, then technically, I only rejected you once.

Roman: Which gives me some hope that you’ll give me another chance now.

Eli: Grandma, I-I know you were concerned when doug locked you in the freezer and confused some names, but I don’t–maybe he just had a couple of bad days. Hell, I know I’m not so sharp when the twins keep me up all night.

Kayla: This is why we ran some cognitive tests.

Julie: Which he passed.

Eli: Okay, then why are you– why are you still so worried?

Julie: He did something so unlike himself, so embarrassing to paulina.

Eli: To paulina?

Julie: Paulina didn’t tell lani? You haven’t heard about this?

Eli: No. I haven’T. What did he do?

Julie: Well, he… he grabbed–he grabbed her hot cross buns.

[Dramatic music]


Allie: Grandma marlena got possessed by the devil?

Johnny: It’s all right here in will’s script. She trashed a church, set it on fire. And that’s not all. She set the salem christmas tree on fire, and she walked butt naked into a party.

Allie: No, no way. No. Grandma’s one of the most buttoned-up dressers around.

Johnny: Yeah, normally. But she obviously wasn’t herself.

Allie: Because the devil made her do it? No, this is–this is nuts.

Johnny: Well, the nuts part is that her eyes glowed yellow. And that she levitated off her bed, apparently.

Allie: Show me where.

Abe: So johnny wants to make a movie about sami’s life.

John: Mm-hmm. From a script that will wrote.

Abe: Well, that’s very ambitious. And keeping it all in the family, you know, I-I like that. But you don’t?

John: The script would probably include marlena’s possession.

Abe: Oh. I see where you’re concerned. Now that’s a time we would all rather forget.

John: You were there right from the very beginning, abraham, when st. Luke’s was desecrated.

Abe: Yes, yes. I knew whoever would do that to a holy sanctuary would have to be evil. I… I had no idea it was the devil himself.

Doug as devil: Tell me, marlena, have you missed me as much as I’ve missed you?

Marlena: No. It can’t–it can’t be.

Doug as devil: At long last. I’ve been trying to find my way back to you for over two decades.

Marlena: This is impossible.

Doug as devil: They say patience is a virtue, but I’m not very big on virtue, as you know.

Marlena: Stop that. You don’t know what you’re saying. This is–this is dementia.

Doug as devil: Doug doesn’t have dementia, and you know it. He’s just a little shaken up by having me inside his body. Between us, I don’t know how he’s kept it all together all this time. That wife of his would try the patience of a saint. That’s why I’ve– I’ve reserved a special place for her in hell with me.


Marlena: That’s not funny, doug.

[Heavy thud]

Doug as devil: Stop calling me doug. You know who I am.

Marlena: No. No, you can’t be the–

Doug as devil: Yes, I can. And you of all people know my name. Pool floaties are like whooping cough.

Roman: You know what? You did love me enough to marry me twice. Is it so crazy to think we couldn’t make it work again?

Kate: [Sighs] The first time we got married, it wasn’t really a marriage because you ended up dead at the reception.

Roman: Yeah. Not exactly an auspicious beginning, but also not my fault. I walked into the kitchen and found myself facing the salem stalker.

Kate: It’s been so long since I even thought about those days. Do you remember–do you remember how shocked everyone was when they found out that marlena was the stalker? I mean, people just believed that she had been possessed again.

Abe: You know, I recall turning to marlena during the investigation. I wanted her to do a psychological profile of the desecrator. She was–she was very helpful. Or at least we thought so at the time.

John: I’ll never forget when I caught her at st. Luke’S. Middle of all that destruction there and the realization hit me that she was the one responsible.

[Ominous music]


Abe: She wasn’t the one responsible; you know that. It was that evil force inside her that made her do all those terrible things.

Allie: Grandma tried to kill a priest?

Johnny: Yes. His name was father francis.

Allie: No. No, there’s no way that any of this is real. Okay? Will obviously made this up so that he could make mom’s life look way more interesting and sell his script.

Johnny: Well, there’s only one way to find out.

[Pensive music]


[Computer beeping]

Will: Hey, guys.

Johnny: Hey, you got a minute?

Will: Oh, for you and my little sister? Always. Oh, congrats on the bakery, allie.

Allie: Thanks. I’ll make sure to ship you some goodies soon.

Will: I will definitely hold you to that. So what do you guys want to talk about?

Allie: The script.

Johnny: Yeah. Thank you for sending it, by the way.

Will: Oh, yeah. What do you think?

Johnny: It’s an interesting story. But we have some questions.

Allie: A lot of questions.

Will: Fire away.

Allie: That thing about grandma marlena getting possessed. You made that up, right?

Will: Actually, no. I got that story straight from mom.

Doug as devil: Go ahead. Say it. Say my name.

Marlena: Your name is doug williams.

Doug as devil: Oh, marlena, if I’m doug, how do I know about all the fun you and I had? Doug doesn’t have any knowledge of our history. He wasn’t even in salem at that time.

Marlena: Well, then you– then you read about it in the newspapers. You’re just confused.

Doug as devil: How did i forget how stubborn you are?

Marlena: This has to stop right now.

Doug as devil: Sit down…

[Echoing] Down…

[Disquieting music]

I suppose it was too much to ask to hope for a warm welcome. But if you need proof of my power, fine. Consider it done.

[Electrical zapping]

Marlena: [Gasps]

Doug as devil: Now do you believe me?

Limu emu & doug

Kate: But of course marlena wasn’t possessed. She was just brainwashed by andre dimera.

Roman: Another former lover of yours.

Kate: And husband. But let’s not mention that.

Roman: All I’m doing is I’m just hitting home the point you already made. You have chosen some very questionable men over the years.

Kate: If you bring up ted laurent, actually i am just gonna walk away.

Roman: You know what? All I’m saying is, why not give a decent good, really good, guy who genuinely cares for you another shot?

Abe: You know, the idea that marlena, one of the kindest people I know, could be possessed by the devil–it… it was impossible to believe.

John: I refused to accept even the possibility. No matter how hard kristen tried to see the truth of what was happening around us, i just couldn’t even deal with it.

Abe: Well, kristen certainly was a different person back then.

John: Yeah, back then, she was–she was a good woman. Strong faith. Doc, on the other hand– she was in such a bad place. She was so vulnerable. Our–our affair had been exposed. Her marriage to roman was destroyed. And then there–the damn stefano, he was preying on her. Her own daughter turned her back on her because samantha was so traumatized by–by the affair that her mother had with me.

Abe: Yeah. Well then, it’s not surprising that all that would end up in sami’s life story.

John: No, it’s not. It’s not. I just–I just don’t think that johnny understands the pandora’s box that he can be opening up if he goes ahead with this film.

Johnny: So mom told you that grandma was possessed?

Will: Yes. But full disclosure, mom had had a few glasses of wine by then.

Allie: But still. I mean, you don’t say something like that just because you’re tipsy.

Johnny: Did you follow up with grandma afterwards?

Will: I asked her about it a couple times, but she just laughed it off.

Allie: Okay, so maybe it’s not true, then? I mean, you know mom. She has a flexible relationship with the truth. So maybe she just made it up because she thought something crazy like that would make her life seem more exciting.

Will: It’s possible.

Johnny: If it isn’t true, I can’t really include it in my biopic.

Will: My brother, the purist.

Johnny: I just want to get it right, okay?

Will: Listen, if you really want answers, you’re gonna have to ask mom.

Kayla: Julie, wait.

Julie: That’s all I’ve been doing.

Kayla: I know how difficult this is. But it is never a good idea to interrupt a session with a psychiatrist.

Julie: But what if doug needs me?

Kayla: You know that he is in the best possible hands.

Eli: You got to be patient, grandma.

Julie: That’s not my strong suit, darling.

[Electrical zapping] Wow. What’s that?

Eli: It must be some sort of power outage.

Kayla: Well, it’s not good. I wonder what caused that.

Doug as devil: Have I finally gotten your attention? Now do you recognize me?

Marlena: Oh, my god. It’s really you.

Doug as devil: Stop invoking god. Unless you want to say his name in vain.


Marlena: This can’t be happening.

[Electrical zapping]

Doug as devil: Satisfied?

Marlena: Why are you doing this? Why are you doing this to doug? He is–he is the kindest, gentlest man I’ve ever known. He is–he is an angel.

Doug as devil: We are two of a kind, aren’t we? Remember, I was an angel myself before I fell from grace.

Marlena: Why are you doing this? After all these years, why have you come back to salem? (Vo) I am living with cll

Johnny: I can’t believe will would put the thing about grandma’s possession in his script if he didn’t know it was true.

Allie: It’s not like he was a reporter then. Nothing but facts. He was just a writer trying to sell a script.

Johnny: Yeah. The other weird thing is that when he confronted grandma marlena about it, she didn’t just come out and say mom made it all up.

Allie: Doesn’t mean it’s true.

Johnny: Doesn’t mean it’s not.

Allie: Well, there’s only one way to find out, and that’s ask mom. Trouble is, she doesn’t seem to answer her phone anymore. I mean, at least not lately.

Johnny: Might as well try. Straight to voicemail.

Allie: As always.

Johnny: Hey, mom. It’s johnny. I’m with allie.

Allie: Tell her we miss her.

Johnny: And we’re both missing you. We just had some questions about family stuff.

Kate: You know, I did give it another shot when I found out that you weren’t dead, but then I found out that you slept with marlena on the island.

Roman: Yes, I did. And you slept with john.

Kate: We thought that you were dead. We didn’t think you were coming back.

Roman: Fair enough. You know, it always has bothered me that we never managed to make it work like–quite like john and marlena did.

Kate: Let’s just face it, roman. Not everyone gets a happy ending, right?

John: You know doc’s my life, abraham. I’m not telling you that you don’t know. I guess what I’m trying to get at is, if all this stuff is–is dredged up again, how am i supposed to protect her?

Abe: Is there any possibility that this project might not go anywhere?

John: I don’t know. I-I don’t know. All I know is that it will gut marlena if she has to be reminded of not only all the destruction, but of–of all the people that she hurt, almost killed, people that she really cared about. Abraham, we almost lost her forever.

Abe: You know, but we didn’T. Because of you. I mean, you–you saved her life by performing that exorcism.

[Disquieting music]


[Electrical zapping]

Kayla: Well, it seems to have stabilized. But who knows if it’s gonna last? I-I think I’ll go down and check and make sure the emergency generators are turned on. You’ll be okay?

Julie: Uh-huh.

Eli: Yeah, I’ll stay with her.

Kayla: Perfect. Okay, thank you. I’ll be back.

Julie: Bye, hon.

Kayla: Okay.

Julie: Well, what would make the electricity suddenly go out? There’s not even a storm.

Eli: It’s probably just a glitch in the works. But it seems to be okay now.

Julie: I hope that flickering light isn’t gonna frighten doug.

Eli: I’m sure he’ll be okay, grandma.

Julie: Darling, in his current state of mind? I want to check on him.

Eli: Well, you heard what kayla said.

Julie: Well, kayla knows a lot about a lot of things. She doesn’t know a lot about my husband.

Eli: Okay, grandma, look. Why don’t we just trust that marlena will keep doug calm and safe? And I will do the same for you. Yes?

Julie: Yes.

Eli: Okay.

Julie: Oh, honey…

Doug as devil: Why am I back? For the fun of it. We are having fun, aren’t we?

Marlena: You need to leave.

Doug as devil: Not a chance.

Marlena: Look. You can’t do this to doug. You just can’t do it. You’ve tortured me. You’ve hurt the people that i love. I will not let you do this to doug.

Doug as devil: So selfless and noble. It doesn’t surprise me. In fact, I’ve been counting on you to feel exactly that way.

Marlena: Tell me what you want.

Doug as devil: Isn’t it obvious? What I want, marlena, is you.

[Eerie music]


[ “The addams family” theme playing ]

Roman: Okay, look. How about this? Instead of dredging up the past, make it about the present. Right here, right now, you are my favorite person in salem.

Kate: Because i brought you doughnuts.

Roman: Because you’re strong and smart, funny, compassionate. And a hell of a good time.

Kate: And because I still look good in a sarong?

Roman: Oh, definitely that. Yes. And I’m thinking just maybe if you admit it to yourself, the way I’m feeling isn’t entirely one way. Lucas obviously sees it. That’s why he’s encouraging us to give it another shot.

Kate: You know what you’re forgetting? That I can still be stubborn and selfish.

Roman: Not to mention you do like a good cat fight from time to time.

Kate: Mm-hmm. I do. And you still like me?

Roman: I more than like you, kate. Say the word, and I will romance the hell out of you.

Johnny: Mm, mm, mm! I wonder if mom will ever even call us back. She’s been so out of touch with everyone since she left town.

Allie: Why don’t we just ask grandma directly?

Johnny: I stopped by earlier, but she had already left for work.

Allie: Why were you there?

Johnny: I’m trying to get her and grandpa to invest in my film.

Allie: Are they going to?

Johnny: I don’t know yet. Grandpa said he had some concerns. So–

Allie: Um, yeah. Like maybe his wife levitated and burned out a church and tried to kill a priest?

Johnny: Who knows? Maybe.

Allie: So go ask him.

Johnny: Better idea: You ask him.

Allie: Me?

Johnny: Come on. He’s never been able to say no to you, and I bet if you bring him over some of those muffins he loves, you’ll crack him wide open.

Allie: This whole thing creeps me out. What if it’s real? The devil? I don’t know if I want to get involved.

Johnny: Since when have you ever been afraid of anything? Come on. Aren’t you even a little curious?

Julie: It’s just that whatever is wrong with him, I’m afraid he’ll never be the same.

Eli: I’m sure once marlena figures out her diagnosis, she’ll–she’ll find a way to pull him through this.

[Phone beeps] Excuse me. Damn. There’s a robbery a couple of blocks from here.

Julie: You have to go.

Eli: No. Grandma, I’m not leaving you here alone. I-I’ll find someone to–to cover for me.

Julie: You will do no such thing. I’m perfectly capable of being here by myself. And besides, I have this. When doug started, well, having these problems, I-I kept it with me. This way, I don’t have to go to st. Luke’s to pray, because after all, god is everywhere.

Eli: That is a good idea. You sure you’re gonna be okay?

Julie: I’m gonna be fine, darling. Now you just go.

Eli: Okay. All right. But please let me know how doug is doing.

Julie: Of course.

Eli: Hey, have faith. Okay? I love you.

[Tender music]


Julie: In the name of the father, of the son, and the holy spirit. Amen.

John: You know, even now, after all these years, it still shakes me to my core.

Abe: Yeah. You know, the important thing, marlena survived. And the devil was banished.

John: You’re right. And that’s what–that’s what you need to hold on to. Just need to remember that we were lucky. That good prevailed over evil.

Abe: No, no. It wasn’t luck. It was your faith and strength. And the faith and strength of this community.

John: I love you, man. And thanks for listening. There’s not too many people that I’m comfortable enough with to discuss this.

Abe: You know I am always there for you, buddy.

John: And I appreciate that more than you’ll ever know. Hey, about dinner, let me– let me check with doc and I’ll get right back with you, okay?

Abe: Yeah, yeah, sounds good. Sounds good.

John: Good to see you, abraham.

Abe: Yes. John… I know what marlena went through was terrifying, but it’s over. You know, if the devil– the devil had wanted her, he’s had over 25 years to get her back. And he hasn’t even tried.

Marlena: You want me?

Doug as devil: I’ve missed you, marlena. That reign of terror that we shared? That was magnificent. We brought salem to its knees. Imagine what we could do this time around.

Marlena: You used me to terrorize the people of this town, people that I love and I care about. You’ll never get inside me again.

Doug as devil: That’s disappointing to hear.

Marlena: I want you to leave. Leave doug. Get out. Get out!

Doug as devil: I’m not going anywhere. Pity that doug has to pay the price.

Marlena: Don’t you dare hurt him.

Doug as devil: It won’t be me who hurts him. It will be you, your selfishness, your choice to protect yourself, doug be damned, so to speak.

Marlena: He doesn’t deserve this.

Doug as devil: No, he doesn’T. And it doesn’t have to happen. It’s so simple. All you have to do is invite me back into you.

Marlena: I won’T.

Doug as devil: Are you sure?

Marlena: Never!

Doug as devil: [Laughs]

[Electrical zapping]

Doug: [Groaning]

Marlena: Don’t, don’t! Please. Please, please don’t hurt him. Don’t hurt him! Your mission:

Roman: Okay, so what do you think? Dinner tonight?

Kate: I am tempted. I really am. But… but now love is so risky, even when–with a great guy like you. I don’t want to risk that. So anyway, I need to get these figures to ej. Excuse me.

Roman: Okay. I have not given up on you, kate. We both know there’s something there. You just need the time to figure it out for yourself.

Julie: Hail mary, full of grace. The lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women. What is taking so long? Something’s wrong. Something’s wrong, I know it. I’m not waiting. I’m not gonna wait another minute.

Johnny: She turns into a jaguar? No wonder anybody wanted to produce will’s script. It’s way too far-fetched.

[Cell phone ringing] Mom! Finally.

[Pensive music]


John: Yeah, you’re right, abraham. It’s all in the past.

[Knocking at door] Just a second. Oh!

Allie: Special delivery, grandpa.

John: Aren’t you the sweetest? Oh, honey, come on in. Come on in.

Allie: It’s all your favorites. Well, all my favorites. So I hope you like them.

John: Well, first, I may have to hide these from grandma so I can enjoy every sweet bit of them. You know, speaking of grandma, we are so proud of you. Number one, for finding something you really love, and number two, going out there and making it happen.

Allie: It’s been really exciting.

John: Yeah.

Allie: I’m also really excited for johnny. I mean, he’s so amped about this movie he’s making. Isn’t it cool that will wrote it and it’s about our mom?

John: Yeah. Yeah, yeah.

Allie: Really all johnny talks about. He even said that there was some pretty crazy stuff about grandma marlena, about her being possessed by the devil. But there’s no way that that happened, right?

[Knocking at door]

Julie: Sorry. I just wanted to–doug! Oh, doug. Oh my god. Marlena, what happened?

[ Soft instrumental ]

Carter: Are we sure?

Quinn: I’m not sure about any of this.

Eric: My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be.

[ Knocking on door ]

Katie: Hey.

Eric: Katie. Hi. Come in.

Katie: Oh, thanks. Sorry to pop over. I know it’s late. I was just looking for ridge and brooke. She said that they were gonna stop by.

Eric: Uh, they were here. You just missed ’em.

Katie: Okay. Well um, I’ll text her. Sorry, it’s late. I don’t want to interrupt you and quinn.

Eric: No, no. My wife’s not here. Quinn’s out for the evening.

Finn: Both kids– sound asleep.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: Thank god. I don’t want to jinx us, but I think hayes might be finally sleeping through the night? Hi…

Finn: Looks that way.

Steffy: You know what that means.

Finn: Mm-hm.

Steffy: We haven’t had many opportunities but dr. Finnegan, I think it’s gonna be your lucky night.

[ Finn sighing ] Unless you’re too exhausted from saving lives and singing lullabies.

Finn: I think I can muster up some energy.

Finn: I’m liking this bedside manner. You might’ve missed your calling.

Steffy: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. There’s only room for one doctor in this house and that is you. I mean, you’re so kind and compassionate. And you’re such a patient father.

Finn: Most of the time.

Steffy: No seriously, you’re an amazing dad. You’ve taken to it beautifully.

Finn: I’m glad I’m getting high marks.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: I couldn’t ask for more from you. You do so much to help everyone. You really go out of your way. I just think it’s time that… I do something special for you.

Katie: I probably shouldn’t say this but I don’t get how you allowed quinn to come back into this house, into your life.

Eric: She’s my wife, katie.

Katie: Yeah, well–

Eric: It works for us. I have every confidence that we’re going to find wonderful ways to improve our marriage in the future.

Katie: Okay, I get it, that you and quinn are the only two people who know what goes on behind closed doors. But you’re… you’re so kind and you’re so forgiving and maybe too forgiving. And, I don’t want to see that taken advantage of. I want you to be happy.

Eric: I am.

Katie: Are you? ‘Cause here you are, you’re– you’re at home, all by yourself while quinn is out for the night. I mean, where the hell is she?

Quinn: Maybe we should stop. I still feel guilty. I– it doesn’t matter that eric sent us over here with a note of permission.

Carter: Okay. Okay, we can stop… but I don’t want to.

[ Sighing ]

Quinn: Oh god… here’s a good halloween trick.

Finn: You’re in a mood tonight.

Steffy: I can be sweet when I want to be.

Finn: Mm, well, I like your soft side. I like every side of you.

Steffy: Good. Because you’re stuck with me.

Finn: Promise?

Steffy: Yeah, I’d be a fool to let you go.

Finn: And if we can make it through these last few months relatively unscathed…

Steffy: We’re in a better place because of it. I know how devoted you are to me and our kids. You would do anything for us. I get that. You cut ties with your birth mother and I know that was really hard for you.

Finn: It was necessary. Our life is too precious to me, steffy. I’m not gonna let sheila or anyone cause problems for us.

Steffy: You’re so incredible, you really are. I couldn’t imagine doing this without you. Creating this little world.

Finn: I think we both got it pretty well.

Steffy: Mm-hm. As long as we have more nights like this…

Finn: Mm, you did promise something… extra special.

Steffy: Extra special. Buckle up. It’s just getting started.

Katie: How is quinn not home? I mean, given everything she’s done to you, I would think that she would be savoring every moment

Eric: We spend plenty of time together katie, we do.

Katie: Well, I would think that she’s on a girls’ night out but she doesn’t have any friends. I mean, she’s pretty much alienated everyone around her. You included–

Eric: Katie.

Katie: Or so I thought.

Eric: I haven’t been the perfect husband. I know that’s hard for a lot of people to understand. But it’s true. I’ve let quinn down. You and brooke think that I’m somebody that’s beyond reproach but…

Katie: You are. I mean, to us you’re about as perfect as any man could be.

Yeah, well, that’s simply not the truth. You give me way too much credit.

Katie: You and I have known each other for a long time, haven’t we? And I have never seen you like this. ]

Katie: It just worries me that she’s– she’s finally broken you down. And she makes you feel like you’re not good enough for her–

Eric: No, she is– she doesn’t make me feel that way. No.

Katie: Well, I don’t think she knows how lucky she is. I mean, she married well above herself.

Eric: Well, marriages are complicated, katie. Oh wait a minute, you know that as well as anybody.

Katie: Okay, fine. That’s true. But you’ve giving her everything she wants and needs.

Eric: No, not everything.

Katie: What are you talking about? She has everything. She has you by her side, she has a beautiful house, she has a thriving career at forrester.

Eric: Yeah, well that doesn’t mean there isn’t something missing.

Katie: Okay. I– I understand if you don’t want to talk about this, if it makes you feel uncomfortable.

Eric: Okay. When you say that there’s “something missing,” and you’re not giving her everything that she needs… are you– are you talking sexually?

[ Quinn moaning ]

Quinn: I can’t lie. I’ve been wanting this, to be in your arms again.

Carter: It’s all I’ve wanted. To hold you, touch you.

[ Quinn moaning ]

[ Quinn sighing ]

Quinn: This is torture.

Carter: I know.

Quinn: But I love you.

[ Quinn sighing ]


Katie: Like I said… we don’t have to get into this. I just– I just want you to know that–

Eric: That you care,

Katie: Yeah.

Eric: It’s coming from a good place.

Katie: It is. I know how amazing you are and I know I keep saying that–

Eric: No, you can– keep saying that. It’s fine. I can– I can take it.

Katie: I just kind feel like I’ve hit you with a lot of quinn negativity today.

Eric: It kind of runs in your family, doesn’t it?

Katie: Mm. Well, the admiration for you runs deep in the logan family. Between brooke and donna and me, well, we’re big fans.

Eric: I’m a big fan of the logan girls, too.

Katie: I just think it’s important for you to know how beloved you are. You are.

Katie: Quinn did this messed up thing by having an affair with carter, someone who’s younger, so it’s only natural for you to feel like–

Eric: You know what I feel like? I feel frustrated with myself, with my– with my life, where it is right now. I’m living in this house by myself!

Katie: Well, maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s it. You’re compromising because you’re afraid of being alone. And that’S…normal. We all feel like that sometimes, believe me! You are eric forrester. You don’t have to compromise. Look at everything you’ve done. You’ve created this like, huge, cultural entity: Forrester creations. You’ve raised six accomplished children. You’ve contributed so much to the world and to everyone around you. You’re a freaking legend.

[ Laughing ] Your art, talent… as a designer, as a philanthropist. Speaker of four languages. Mentor to young fashion students. You’re an icon and the best thing is that your best years are still in front of you so you don’t have to settle. Not professionally, not personally, so you don’t have to do it now and you don’t have to do it for quinn. Please eric, I– I hate seeing you like this. Please tell me what’s going on.

Eric: It’s late. Thanks for listening. You’re a good friend.

Katie: Okay. I’m right next door if you need anything.

Eric: Okay.

Finn: Wow. When you said something special, you weren’t kidding. Scoot over.

Steffy: I promised you a surprise, didn’t I?

Finn: Yes. And you did not disappoint.

Steffy: I just want to… take the time to show you how much I adore you and how sexy you are ’cause let’s be honest. I needed this as much as you do.

Finn: You look as… oh. I– I forgot how to talk.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: Good, ’cause we’re not gonna do much talking.

[ Romantic music ]

[ Dramatic music ]

Eric: How was your night?

Quinn: I didn’t know you were awake.

Eric: Did you gave him my note?

Quinn: Yes.

Eric: What happened?

Quinn: Eric, I can’T.

Eric: Did you make love?

Quinn: Yeah.

Eric: Good.

Quinn: Eric, I don’t– I don’t want to talk about this. I don’t want to hurt you.

Eric: I wish it was me. I so wish it was me. I love you so much.

Quinn: I know how much you love me.

Eric: You’re my wife. I want to give you everything in this life. I want you to be completely fulfilled.

Quinn: I understand but you can never doubt how much I love you.

Nikki: Hi.

Victor: What in the world?

Nikki: Well, now, I know i went a little overboard, but it’s not every day that we have a baptism in the family, so I’m allowed.

Victor: Did you buy the whole damn store or what?

Nikki: Hardly. But I just have to tell you, the first time I saw our son, I got the most incredible feeling. I looked in his face and I saw the man he’s gonna be, the man who’s gonna continue and extend that special magic of his father. I’m just so grateful that we gave each other a son. Our son, nicholas christian newman. And I just feel that we’ll always be together in him, for future generations.

Victor: Well, now, I guess there is no such thing as too many gifts. Such a joyous occasion.

Nikki: Well, I’m glad to hear you say that because there’s one more thing I need to do for me.

Victor: What?

Nikki: Well, I ordered these baby-themed cupcakes as a surprise for abby. Do you think you’d be able to pick them up and then meet me at the church?

Victor: Pick up cupcakes, where? Where are they?

Nikki: At society. Their pastry chef has been sworn to secrecy.

Victor: You’re asking me, a busy business tycoon, to drive over to society to pick up cupcakes?

Nikki: Would you?

Victor: If you’re sweet with me, I will. I’ll do it for you and for abby.

Nikki: Well, thank you. I’m always sweet. Anyway, I just thought it would be something festive to add to the day.

Victor: So nice of you to do that, okay? I just wish that my son-in-law were here.

Nikki: I know. We’re all praying for his safe return.

Victor: He wasn’t here for the birth of his boy. Now he’s not gonna be here at the baptism of his boy. I guess his son will lay eyes on his father when he is in preschool.

Nikki: Oh, now, I know you’re frustrated. So am I. But this is an important day for our family, so I’m gonna try not to get mired down in negativity.

Victor: Well, then you’re a better person than I am.

Nikki: The point is, baby dominic has devon, he has his grandfather, several uncles — he’s gonna be just fine.

Victor: [ Sighs ] Well, sweetheart, I’m concerned about abby, you know? I mean, where is chance?

Abby: Okay, I think that’s everything — music, flowers.

Ashley: And I’d better get out of here if I’m gonna get over to the chapel and check on everything before the ceremony.

Abby: Mom, I can do that.

Nina: No, there’s no messing with the plan.

Ashley: Sweetie, that’s right, I got it handled, okay? But I want you to do me two favors before I leave — take a deep breath.

[ Breathes deeply ] And then get rid of your phone.

Abby: My security blanket? No way.

Ashley: Listen, we have all played our parts. It’s gonna go perfectly, so please focus on your beautiful son and this wonderful day.

Nina: Listen to your mother. It’s time to relax and enjoy.

Abby: Well, thank you both so much. I don’t know what I would’ve done without you.

Nina: Well, everything would still be perfect, but you’d be a whole lot more frazzled.

Ashley: That sounds about right.

Nina: I’m gonna go get ready.

Ashley: Okay, see you. And I will see you at the baptism.

Abby: Okay.

Ashley: Okay. Hi. I see you’re back.

Jack: Surprised seeing you here. Hey.

Abby: Uncle jack, hi!

Jack: I know everyone’s meeting at the church, but i wanted to come by and see how you were doing.

Abby: Uh, I am — I’m good. A tad bit overwhelmed, but good.

Jack: I’d b weren’T.

Abby: [ Gasps ] Thank you. Gosh, can you believe this? After everything we’ve been through, this is actually happening. I mean, it’s finally sinking in. I am christening my baby boy today. It’s a miracle for me on so many levels.

Jack: I am thrilled for you. And I can see already what a wonderful mother you’re going to be.

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: So…how are you feeling about the christening? No judgment, just unconditional love and support.

Mariah: I am feeling much better about things.

Tessa: Yeah?

Mariah: I’m excited for the ceremony. And I am really, really happy that I am bowie’s godmother. I think I’m gonna keep calling dominic that, you know? My mom was right, I can have a nickname for him.

Tessa: Yeah, yeah, yeah, there’s nothing wrong with that.

Mariah: It can be a part of our special bond. And that’s how I see being a godmother. Someone who takes special interest in the child’s wellbeing. Part of the circle of people that love him and want him to grow up happy and healthy.

Tessa: Well, that is a great way to look at it.

Mariah: You seem relieved. Were you concerned that I wasn’t gonna be able to handle today?

Devon: Moses! Got some coffee and bagels, man.

Amanda: Well, that sounds delicious.

Devon: Now, when did you get back?

Amanda: While you were at the market.

Devon: Oh, yeah?

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Devon: Where’s moses at?

Amanda: Well, he’s already left for school, so I don’t know if you want to come and join me in bed, welcome me home from my trip? Or maybe you’re too hungry to, uh — alright, then.

[ Both chuckle ]

Victor: Well, now, if it isn’T…

Ashley: Hi.

Victor: Goodness. I didn’t expect to see you till the christening.

Ashley: I know. Well, I’m on my way to the chapel to make sure everything is set up properly.

Victor: Uh-huh. Well, I’m on a secret cupcake mission, you know, to society.

Ashley: Must be pretty amazing cupcakes.

Victor: Oh. Special occasion.

Ashley: It’s momentous, when you think of everything that had to happen to get here. I mean, the journey that our daughter’s been on.

Victor: Yeah. Certainly have thrown a lot of obstacles at her.

Ashley: Oh, she’s overcome every single one of them. You know why? She wasn’t gonna let anything stand in the way of her dream.

Victor: Because she’s a very determined young lady, and i wonder who she gets that from.

Ashley: I don’t know.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Ashley: I’m so proud of her. And chance, too, the way that he willingly accepted help from mariah and devon. He wanted to make this happen for abby.

Victor: Yeah, I give him that.

Ashley: You know, he’s the kind of a man that you dream your daughter would end up with, but I just really wish we could bring him back.

Victor: To be honest with you, I did admire that, but right now, it’s getting a little bit too much. I mean, he has other obligations and duties that take precedence. He has to raise his child. To hell with his assignment, it’s gone on too long.

Ashley: Yeah. You know what? You’re not gonna get an argument from me on that one.

Victor: What do you think if you and I put our heads together and do something about it?

I may have moderate to

severe rheumatoid arthritis.

Devon: I am so happy to hear that you had fun with your mom and your sister. Sounds like you guys are making some real beautiful memories together.

Amanda: Yeah, it was great getting to know them and understand them better, especially without all the drama to contend with. It was serene and relaxing. Well, until yesterday.

Devon: Why, what happened yesterday?

Amanda: Naya got a call from her doctor. He got some results back from tests that he had taken before she left town.

Devon: Was it bad news or…?

Amanda: My mother has atrial fibrillation. She had no idea, and it’s extra hard on her with, you know, sutton’s trial coming up. It’s double whammy, and everything is just so stressful.

Devon: I could only imagine.

Amanda: Yeah, so I want to make sure that I find her the best doctors, get her the best possible care.

Devon: Well, you know that i can help you doing that, any way that I can.

Amanda: Thank you.

Devon: Of course.

Amanda: I appreciate that. Okay, well, enough about me. What’s going on with you? How’s the baby?

Devon: [ Chuckles ] Dominic?

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Devon: Dominic is, uh… well, he’s great. He’s really great. I feel like he’s already getting big. I don’t want to brag, but i might be some kind of a baby whisperer, ’cause the other day, he was crying and crying, and no one was able to calm him down except for me.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ]

Devon: So…

Amanda: Well, I am not surprised because you always know exactly how to make me feel better.

Devon: I try.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ]

Devon: You know today’s the baptism, right?

Amanda: Yes, I know. You were telling me. It’s so fast.

Devon: I know. And you’re obviously invited to go, but I understand completely if you don’t feel up to it.

Amanda: I would love to go. Being a part of something positive and life-affirming right now, that would be soothing to my soul. And I know how important it is to you to be his godfather.

Jack: So, how is mariah doing?

Abby: Oh, well, she would like us to believe that she’s doing okay, but, gosh, this whole thing has been so traumatizing for her, and i think she’s really struggling. And tessa just confirmed that when I spoke to her.

Jack: Yeah, I’m not surprised to hear that. She asked for an extension of her leave-of-absence. It’s not like her.

Abby: She told me about that. She’s not herself right now.

Jack: I told her to take as much time as she needed to heal.

Abby: You know, those weeks leading up to the birth, they were supposed to be joyous ones, but instead, she was isolated, she was locked in a room. I mean, she had no idea who kidnapped her or what they intended to do with her or the baby.

Jack: Mariah is a survivor. She has a great support system all around her and a mother who is a professional counselor.

Abby: Well, yes, mariah is incredibly strong. I just think it’s gonna take some time, and she’s not there yet.

Jack: I get that.

Abby: Last night, I invited mariah and devon to come over and help me interview some potential nanny candidates, and I found a very strong choice, so I hired her on the spot. And I’m just hoping it’s gonna give mariah some relief, knowing that dominic’s gonna be in good hands when I can’t be with him.

Jack: Yeah, I’d like to think it would help her, having that burden lifted.

Abby: Yeah, this way, she can just focus on herself and she get through this nightmare.

Jack: Well, hopefully, she’ll come back to jabot. I’m not gonna pressure her at all, but I think it would do her a world of good.

Abby: That’s what it’s gonna take to get mariah through this — having something to focus on.

Mariah: I get why you would be worried, especially after i told you that there was a tiny part of me that blamed abby for what stitch did to me. And I just — I hate that I have those thoughts.

Tessa: Give yourself a break. You went through hell. Stuff is bound to come up.

Mariah: I suppose.

Tessa: I am glad that you are able to confide in me, tell me what’s really going on with you. Can you keep it up?

Mariah: I just felt like i was drowning. And that’s why I was having those irrational thoughts, and there’s like a million emotions coming into my head all at once. I mean, there was tension and fear and resentment and anger, and then you tangle it all up with giving birth to this innocent little baby, and just the things that were going on in my head… but I’m better. Okay? Bowie getting christened is amazing, and abby asking me to be the godparent, I will admit, I was a little thrown at first, but now it’s like I have an official role in his life, so it’s kind of perfect.

Tessa: Yeah, well, I think you are gonna be the coolest godmother ever. I can’t wait to see you in action.

Mariah: Me too, I can’t wait.

Tessa: Well, we should head to the chapel soon. Refill for the road?

Mariah: Yeah, absolutely.

Abby: Hi.

Abby. And the godparents. I’d like to welcome you all to the baptism of abby and phillip chancellor’s son. Unfortunately, phillip couldn’t be with us today. We thank him for his continuing brave service to our country. We’ll hold him in our hearts and keep him in our prayers. This child truly is a gift from god. Whenever I’ve spoken to abby on the subject, the joy on her face is clear to see. What name do you give your child?

Abby: Dominic. Dominic phillip newman abbott chancellor.

What do you ask of god’s church for dominic?

Abby: Baptism.

In presenting your child for baptism, you’re accepting the responsibility to raise him in the practice of our faith. It will be your duty to bring him up to keep god’s commandments, as christ taught us, by loving god and our neighbor. Do you clearly understand what you’re undertaking?

Abby: I do.

Mariah and devon, you’ve accepted the sacred responsibility of assisting abby and phillip in their duty as christian parents. You will, through your word and your example, help raise dominic to be a caring, faithful member of his community. Do you clearly understand what you’re undertaking?

Devon: I do.

Mariah: I do.

Dominic, the church welcomes you with great joy. In its name, I claim you for christ our savior. Eternal god, as we baptize with water, baptize us with the holy spirit, that what we say will be your words and what we do may be your works. Dominic phillip newman abbott chancellor, I baptize you in the name of the father and of the son and of the holy spirit. This child of god is received into the holy church. See what the father has given us, that we are called children of god. My dear brothers and sisters, let us ask our lord jesus christ to look lovingly on this child, on his parents and godparents, that they undertake their sacred duty with faith and love. Join me in welcoming the newest member of our holy family.

Abby: Dominic! I am so proud of you. You were so good at your baptism.

Devon: Yeah, he didn’t make a peep at the chapel.

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

Nina: That’s a lovely ceremony. It was simple and perfect.

Ashley: It was so moving, seeing the three of you up there pledging to give dominic his best possible future.

Nikki: He is the living embodiment of genoa city’s four most prominent families, and of course, I include the winters in that.

Victor: Yes.

Devon: Oh, thank you very much.

Tessa: No pressure.

[ Laughter ]

Abby: Well, I promise chance and I are gonna raise him to be down-to-earth and humble, just like his godparents. I have to say, I feel so blessed to have you in my life and for you to be dominic’s godparents. I’m forever grateful.

Victor: May I suggest we have a toast? To my newest grandson, dominic.

To dominic. Serena: It’s my 3:10

Amanda: Thank you.

Abby: You’re welcome.

Ashley: Hey.

Abby: Oh!

[ Laughter ]

Victor: You know, sweetheart, I remember when you were born. It was very unexpected. And you were ready. There was no going back. That was it.

Ashley: That’s because she wanted to be here in time for the holidays.

Abby: Hey, you know me, I’ve always been a planner.

Ashley: [ Laughs ]

Victor: I rushed your mother to the hospital. Fortunately, I was there. And then the nurse handed you to me. I was the first one to hold you.

Abby: I love that story.

Devon: I got to hold dominic right after he was born, and that’s a moment that I’ll treasure for the rest of my life.

Nina: I am so grateful that you and abby were there, that everything turned out so well. I know chance is gonna be overwhelmed when he hears what you went through to bring his son into the world. And mariah’s incredible bravery.

Mariah: Oh, well, you do what you’ve got to do.

Nina: I know that if it was in his power, chance would be here for this very special day. He knows better than anyone how important it is to be surrounded by love. Whether or not those people are blood relatives.

Nikki: Ah, that is so true.

Ashley: Aww. Well, honey, as you know, your aunt traci can’t be here to help us celebrate, but on the phone last night, she reminded me of your christening and just how smitten our father was with you. Right, jack?

Jack: Oh, yeah, if dad could be here, he would be so incredibly proud, as would neil.

Devon: Yeah. Neil was abby’s godfather.

Amanda: Oh, wow. I mean, the more I hear about your family connections, the more in awe I am of all of you.

Abby: Actually, nate’s mom, olivia, is my godmother. Yeah, my mom and olivia were sorority sisters.

Ashley: Yeah, still very dear friends to this day.

Abby: And I’m just so thankful that my good friend is dominic’s godmother.

Mariah: Oh, I was honored to be asked, and the ceremony was incredibly special.

Abby: Well, you always have an important role in my son’s life. As you should.

Mariah: That means a lot. Um, I’m just gonna — just gonna go.

[ Glass shatters ] Oh, my god!

Abby: Oh, my gosh.

Devon: It’s okay.

Mariah: I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry.

Abby: He’s a light sleeper today.

Mariah: Oh, gosh.

Abby: No, it’s okay.

Mariah: I’m such a klutz. I just — it — and now there’s a mess and then the baby’s upset. I’m so — abby, I am so sorry.

Abby: It’s fine, it’s fine. It’s okay.

Tessa: Hey, hey. We’ll be right back. Come on.

Abby: Mommy’s here. It’s okay, mommy’s here. It’s alright.

[ Dominic crying ]

Mariah: Oh, my god. What is wrong with me?! I’m sorry, I’m sorry.

Tessa: Hey, hey, first of all, you don’t have to apologize for anything. Do you hear me?

Mariah: I thought I could do this. I tried. I really, really tried, but they’re telling all these stories, like bowie is already a part of their lives, and their efforts to include me, it just made everything worse.

Tessa: Oh, honey, I —

Mariah: I can’t even be around the baby without my heart shattering into a million pieces.

[ Sighs ] I don’t think I can do this. Ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete,

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Abby: [ Sighs ] Dominic should sleep for a while now, knock on wood.

Victor: Why did mariah overreact this way?

Abby: The truth is, there’s still a lot of emotional fallout from the kidnapping. It’s a struggle.

Victor: I guess you’re right.

Jack: The best thing we can all do is show mariah as much love and support as we possibly can.

Ashley: I agree. And to that end, I think we should get some coffee and enjoy these cupcakes. Right? And the party. Because the last thing that mariah needs is to come in and see us all dissecting her behavior.

Nikki: You’re absolutely right.

Ashley: Hey.

Abby: Hi.

Ashley: You alright?

Abby: Yeah, yeah. I’m okay. You know, I’m handling a lot right now, but I think I’m doing it well. And I can feel a lot of different emotions all at once. Love for my beautiful baby boy and concern for mariah and chance.

Ashley: Glad to hear it.

Abby: Yeah. And yeah, all of this would be easier if my husband were here and I didn’t have to handle everything alone, because, yes, it’s exhausting, but, no, I know he is doing everything that he can to get back to us and me worrying is not gonna make him come home any faster.

Ashley: Honey, I’m very proud of you. I’m very proud of how you’re handling all this turmoil.

Abby: Thank you. Gratitude helps. I’m grateful for my friends and my family. Having nina has been amazing. I mean, she’s peeled me off the ceiling I don’t know how many times.

Ashley: I hope you tell her that a lot.

Abby: I do.

[ Chuckles ]

Ashley: Good.

Abby: Every day. And I’m so thankful for you and dad.

Devon: You get some air? You feel okay?

Mariah: Yeah.

Abby: I hope you’re okay.

Victor: My sweet love, it was a wonderful day. Very special day. Now, you get some rest, okay?

Abby: Thank you. And, nikki, thank you so much for the cupcakes. They were delicious.

Nikki: Oh, you’re very welcome. Congratulations again on your son’s baptism.

Abby: Thank you.

Victor: Bye, sweetheart.

Jack: Hey, we’re gonna head out, too.

Ashley: Yes, I will talk to you tomorrow.

Abby: Okay, yeah. I love you. Love you.

Ashley: And I love him.

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: Hey, chin up. Everything’s gonna be better. Just have patience.

Abby: Yeah.

Nina: Okay, I’m just gonna be in the kitchen if you need me, alright?

Abby: Okay.

Devon: Hey, I’m gonna meet up with you in a bit. I just want to stay behind and make sure mariah’s okay.

Amanda: Oh, yeah, I totally understand.

Devon: Okay.

Amanda: Okay, let me just say goodbye to abby.

Devon: Yeah, yeah.

Amanda: I just wanted you to know that your son is precious.

Abby: Thank you so much. And I am so happy that you’re a part of his special day.

Amanda: Oh, I really appreciate you allowing me to be a part of it.

Abby: Of course.

Amanda: Have a good day.

Abby: You too.

[ Sighs ]

Devon: [ Sighs ] I’m sorry that today didn’t go the way you hoped.

Abby: Oh, it’s no one’s fault. I mean, mariah can’t help the way that she feels. But I really feel like I have done everything to try to make things better for her.

Devon: I know you have, and i know you’re worried about her. I am, too.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: Um…

Devon: What’s going on?

Mariah: Tessa and I are moving out. We’ll back for the rest of our stuff at another time. And I’m gonna keep pumping and storing milk so that it’s available for the baby whenever you need it. I can see that this is a shock. And I’m really sorry, I just… I can’t stay here anymore. Is now a good time for a flare-up?

Nikki: You were quiet driving home.

Victor: Yeah. You know why? I just can’t help being concerned about abby standing alone at the baptism. Where the hell is her husband?

Nikki: I know we’re all anxious for him to return.

Victor: I mean, she does everything alone, poor girl.

Nikki: And has risen to the occasion beautifully.

Victor: Yeah, she has, but nevertheless, it can’t be easy for her. That are being brought up now.

Jack: But you’re also feeling uneasy about how all of this is going to affect abby and your new grandchild.

Abby: I am not upset about the party. I’m really not, and, well, you and tessa, you agreed to live here for a few months, at least. I mean, you’re — you’re part of our family. And as far as I’m concerned, nothing has changed.

Mariah: For you. Nothing’s changed for you. I told myself that I could do this, that I was gonna be the best surrogate. Be a part of the baby chancellor crew, and I tried. I wanted so badly to make your dream come true. A dream that I had never even allowed myself to dream. But then I gave — I gave birth to that baby, and just… everything changed. I changed.

Abby: Okay. Look, I was just talking to devon about this. I mean, there are a lot of emotions going around here, and, um… look, I want to help you. Look, we want to help you. We want to make it better. I mean, I am forever grateful to you.

Devon: Yes.

Abby: Anything you need, i can do. I’ll do it.

Mariah: I know, I know. I know that, abby. You say it constantly. But there is nothing that you can do that’s gonna make this easier for me.

Abby: Then what would?

Mariah: I was the one who carried that child. And I was the one who talked to him while he was still inside me, and I told him and promised him that I was gonna keep him safe. And I am not saying any of this to hurt you. That is the last thing that i want to do, but I cannot stay here and pretend that this isn’t killing me. Not anymore. I just — I can’T. I can’t step back and watch — watch you… I know that this what we agreed to. I know that this is how it’s supposed to be, but I cannot be here day in and day out because it hurts so bad. It physically hurts because, as crazy as this sounds, all I want to do is be his mother. I want to be the one to hold him and to feed him and to quiet him when he cries. It’s bowie. That’s my bowie.

[ Crying ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Sniffles ] Which is why I can’t stay here anymore. I order my groceries online now.

Jack: Since she became jabot’s new marketing director, I’ve gotten to know mariah pretty well. She’s grown professionally and personally, and this was a truly selfless act on her part to carry this child.

Ashley: Jack, nobody’s debating that.

Jack: I’m saying this as much for myself as for you. Look, stitch put her through hell, but it’s gonna take some time, and she’s not just abby’s friend, she’s not just her surrogate. Since that little boy came into this world, she became part of this family. And looking after family, even when it’s challenging —

Ashley: Yes, I know. Abby’s been brought up to do just that, jack. That’s what we abbotts always do.

Victor: Abby has a new baby and an absent father. She doesn’t need to take care of mariah on top of that.

Nikki: I know that concerns you.

Victor: I just don’t like the fact that mariah is gonna be living in that same household. She’s emotionally very unstable. Who knows what’ll happen? It’s not good for either abby or the child.

Nikki: A child that mariah brought into this world.

Victor: Yeah, under very difficult circumstances, and obviously mariah is very traumatized by it.

Nikki: Well, darling, you were just speaking about the strength that abby has shown. If she could muster up just a little bit more strength and offer a caring hand to mariah, I mean, I can’t think of anything that would be more healing.

Victor: I love you.

Nikki: I love you.

Abby: Everything you said, I understand. I am — I’m so sorry that you’re going through this.

Mariah: Do you mind if I — if I say goodbye to dominic?

Abby: Sure, yeah, absolutely. Take all the time you need.

Mariah: [ Sniffles ] Hi. Okay, come here. We’re gonna go up. Yeah, that’s a good boy. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.

[ Sniffles ] Okay, come here. Hi, buddy.

[ Sniffles ] Hi, bowie. I have to say goodbye now. Okay?

[ Sniffles ] But you and me, we are always gonna be connected. We’re always gonna have a special bond like nobody else. And I know that there is gonna come a time when I’m stronger and I’m a little more together, and then I can come over here. I could be a part of your life and watch you grow. I need to keep my distance for now. As much as it kills me, as much as it breaks my heart, so I can get to that place. My bowie.

[ Sniffles ] Oh, my bowie. I love you so, so much.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Devon: I was hoping, since you were planning on putting some roots down here, I don’t know, maybe you’d want to move in here with me.

Mariah: I’m not saying it’s gonna be easy, but it is a path forward, the right one. I think we should have a baby of our own.

Ashland: $3 million.

Gaines: By the end of the day, and then I’ll be out of your life and you can die knowing that your secret is safe.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


of those we have loved and lost. Our loved ones may be gone, but they are never far from our hearts. Carly! No! You have to find a way inside! Mike is trapped in there! You have to get him out! We’re doing everything we can! Nina, you heard the fire captain. It’s too dangerous. What, too dangerous to save a life? There’s no way he survived this much time in that fire! He’s gone, nina. We have to accept that. Come on, maxie. Pick up the damn phone. Catering crisis? Jax knows I’m at a wedding. Why is he calling? Father reyes: From the book of genesis…

[ Clears throat ] …”Then the man said, ‘this at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; and she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.’ Therefore, a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Maxie: Hi, it’s maxie.

Leave me a message.

[ Coughing ] Jax, what are you doing? I am trying to reach maxie. She needs to know that peter set fire here in nixon falls and tried to kill you and phyllis. And — and mostly, she needs to know that peter is alive and on the run. To hell with peter! We have to get sonny out of that building before it’s too late! Son of a bitch.

[ Groans ]

You’ve all come here today to bear witness and bless the joining together of carly and jason in holy matrimony. The scriptures teach us that the bond and covenant of marriage is a gift of god, a holy mystery in which two become one flesh. As carly and jason give themselves to each other today, let their love be an example and an inspiration to us all. Rather than bearing witness to a new love… maxie? You okay? I was just thinking about how happy I am that I didn’t marry peter. That would have been an epic mistake. …The latest chapter in their lives… not like carly and jason, though. This just feels right. No! You heard the fire captain. He knows what he’s talking about. The building is on fire! Any attempt to rescue sonny now is only gonna lead to more loss of life. There’s nothing we can do. No, he’s still alive, and I have to get him out! No! How are you gonna do that?! The front door is blocked. The back hallway’s engulfed with flames! No, listen! He’s in there! We have to find him! We have to find mike! You mean sonny.

[ Grunts ] What does that even matter, jax?! There’s a man trapped in a burning building! We have to help him. Please.

[ Sobbing ]

[ Grunts ] The union of husband and wife in heart, body, and mind is intended by god for their mutual joy, for the help and comfort given one another both in prosperity and adversity. Therefore, marriage is not to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly, but reverently, deliberately, and in accordance with the purposes for which it was instituted by god. Into this holy union, carly and jason now come to be joined. If any of you gathered today can show just cause why they may not lawfully be married, speak now or forever hold your peace. I keep thinking tracy is gonna barge in here and do anything, anything to keep carly from marrying into this family again. Good. Let’s proceed. Now it’s your turn. I charge you both that if either of you know any reason why you may not be united lawfully in marriage, you do confess it now before god and these witnesses.

[ Grunting ]

[ Coughing ]

Carly, will you have jason to be your husband in the covenant of marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him in sickness and in health, forsaking all others, be faithful to him for as long as you both shall live? I will. Jason, will you have carly to be your wife in the covenant of marriage? Will you love her, comfort her, and keep her in sickness and in health, forsaking all others, be faithful to her for as long as you both shall live? I will. This reminds me of our wedding. Me, too.

[ Blows nose ] Joss looks so beautiful. Oh, I know it. Will all of you witnessing these promises do everything in your power to uphold these two persons in marriage? All: We will. Let me go. I have to find mike! No. No! There’s no use. I’m not gonna let you throw your life away. Nina. Nina! Listen to jax. I love mike, too, but it’s too late to save him. It can’t be too late. It’s not too late. I want to get you and phyllis over to the clinic. I want you checked out by doctors, okay? I’m not gonna leave mike. He still has a chance.

[ Crying ] Oh, mike. Please, I can’t lose him. It’s not too late. I take you, jason, to have and to hold from this day forward. For better, for worse. For richer, for poorer. In sickness and in health. To love and to cherish as long as we both shall live.

[ Sighs ] I take you, carly… …to have and to hold from this day forward. For better, for worse. For richer, for poorer. In sickness and in health. To love and to cherish… for as long as we both shall live. Do you have the rings?

[ Sniffles ] Jason, I give you this ring as a symbol of my love, with all that I am and all that I have. Carly, I give you this ring as a symbol of my love, with all that I am and all that I have.

[ Radio chatter ] I’m gonna take you and phyllis over to the clinic. Okay? Have you checked out. Take my hand, nina.

[ Radio chatter ] Come on. Come on. Now that carly and jason have given themselves to each other by solemn vows, with the joining of hands, and the giving and receiving of rings, I pronounce them husband and wife.

[ Applause ] Those whom god has joined together, let no one put asunder. All: Amen. You alright? My car’s not too far. I just — I-I — I just need to look one more time.

[ Crying ] It’s all gone. Whoa, whoa, whoa! Phyllis, phyllis. Hey, we need some help here! Oh. Oh, my god. Nina, no!

[ Coughing ] Ahh.

[ Crying ] Now, jason, you may kiss your bride.

[ Applause ] Thank god you made it. You’re gonna be okay. We’re gonna be okay.

joss: Okay, okay. This belongs to you. Oh, thank you. I’m so happy for you. I’m pretty happy myself. Yeah, me too.

[ Mendelssohn’s “wedding march” plays ] Well, that’s our cue. Yeah. Even I have to admit, carly does look lovely. You know, if you’re into that kind of look. They do look happy. Right. Gives you hope for the rest of us. So, what’s, uh — what’s next? Ah, well, we shake a lot of hands and we kiss a lot of cheeks. Well, that’s one option. What are you talking about? Let’s go. What? Come on. Look, jax, he made it! He made it. Jax: Hey, we need some help over here! Paramedic: Please step back so we can work. Listen, he collapsed! I’m gonna ride in the ambulance with him. Okay. Be careful. Okay. Why don’t you let me take you to the clinic? Jax!

[ Coughs ] What? No! I’m not leaving him. He almost died. He risked his life for me, and I’m not gonna let him die. He has too much to live for. You know, when I first heard about carly’s plan to marry jason, I got to say, I thought it was all kinds of wrong. Sonny — he hasn’t been gone even a year. Did you tell carly any of this? Oh, god, no. I mean, I would have if she would have asked, but luckily she didn’t, so I kept my big mouth shut. And I am so happy I did. I mean, did you see her? She was so happy. She was positively glowing. Yes, well, I certainly had my doubts. I mean, why wouldn’t I? Carly almost single-handedly destroyed A.J.’S life. But a lot of time has passed, and jason really seems genuinely happy. Yeah. What, are you saying you approve? I don’t know. Maybe I’m just a sucker for weddings. You feeling a bit melancholy? Ellie and i agreed to part ways, but I-I do miss her. Though I know in my heart it’s for the best. She would not have approved of today’s event. Are you speaking of the ceremony or the guest list? Look, I-I-I understand the necessity to have certain business associates in attendance, but… don’t you think they kind of put a pall on the festivities? Well, considering that carly and jason got married in order to send a message to said guests, it only makes sense that they be here to receive it. You don’t think they detract from the ambiance, though? Oh, please. I think carly and jason could have cared less. I think they were completely oblivious. It’s true. The — the bride and the groom seemed to have eyes for no one but each other. Mm-hmm.

[ Chuckles ] I am so proud of you. What, for handing off the ring? Yes. For not doing that thing where you pretend you can’t find the ring.

[ Sighs ] That is so lame. Okay, when jason’s the groom and my mom’s the bride, are you kidding me? If it’s gonna make you unhappy to talk to jax right now, don’t do it. I-I’m not even thinking about jax, and he’s gonna have to wait. I have a job to do. Hello, diane. Maxie! Maxie, the ceremony was gorgeous. The flowers are beautiful. Congratulations on a job well done. Oh, no, no, no. Don’t — don’t compliment me just yet. We haven’t even gotten to the reception venue. And on that subject, the deejay has not checked in yet. Could you get on that for me? I’m gonna text you his contact information right now. On it. Bye. [ Chuckles ] If you want to go check on your baby mama before the reception, don’t worry about me. Vincent will make sure I get there safely. Except the novaks do make me worry. It was a lovely ceremony, don’t you think? No doubt about it. They’re legally married now. Which makes them twice as dangerous, in my book. Where are the bride and groom? I thought the receiving line was gonna be here at the church. Mom and jason wouldn’t just take off, would they? Well, they’re clearly not here. So the question is, where’d they go? I can’t believe you came here, no questions asked. What are you talking about? You know I trust you completely. Yeah, it’s the “no questions” part that surprised me. Well, I thought you could use a break from all the pomp and circumstance. And I was very impressed that you made it through the entire ceremony without wanting to bolt. I would never leave you.

You know, there was this moment… …where I looked up and monica was just smiling at me. It was so nice. And my mom had tears in her eyes, and I looked over and josslyn and michael were just grinning from ear to ear. Yeah, I kind of get the whole fuss now. You know, it’s like, it’s not just about you and me, it’s about our friends, our family, just our people, you know? I love the sound of that. Our friends, our family. Our life together. Starting now. Well, don’t let us interrupt. Hey, no fair sneaking up on us. We’re newlyweds, remember? Yeah, we know that. Everyone’s out there waiting for you. That’s why michael and i came to find you. Well, I promised the church secretary that I would clear out of here, so I need to get started. Hmm. Hey, remind me, is it the bride’s job to clean up the dressing room, or does she have people for that? I don’t know if she has people, but she has a maid of honor and a best man, and that sounds like a job for them. Not to mention that the wedding planner is going to have a major breakdown if you deviate from her schedule any longer. Sounds like we’re being kicked out. Yeah, I think so. Okay, all kidding aside, thank you both so much for standing up for us and making this day so special. It was special for us, too. Aww. Love you so much. I’d say welcome to the family, but you’re already a part of it. I’ll take it anyway. I’ll get one, too. Aww.

[ Laughter ] Alright, enough hugs. Get out there. Okay, come on. Okay. Bye. [ Chuckles ] Any guess as to where your daughter and brand-new son-in-law are? No, because my biggest worry was when father reyes asked if anybody was going to object. You really thought someone was gonna do that? You didn’t? Like who? Well, I happen to know that jax is not happy that josslyn’s new stepdad is jason. Hmm, well, glad he realized that the ceremony was not the place to air his objections. Yeah, well, jax isn’t entirely wrong, but, you know, he’s just not taking into account the bond between jason and carly and how much they’re truly committed to one another and to their family, and of course that includes josslyn. Excuse me. Where are the bride and groom? Do you see this schedule on my phone? Every minute of this day is planned. There is no room for jason and carly to go rogue. Uh… oh, here are the newlyweds.

[ Cheers and applause ] And where have you been? We just needed a minute alone. Mm-hmm. Well, you’re here now. Let us congratulate you.

[ Cheers and applause ] I guess we should go join everyone. Gladys, go be with your son. I’ll be along in a moment. You better. What do you think? Should we join everyone? Why not?

Carpe diem. Yes, seize the day. You know, most people forget the rest of that famous quote.

Quam minimum

credula postero. Which means? “Don’t put your trust in tomorrow.” Whoa, epiphany. Hmm? That’s one long hug. Are you kidding me? Jason is the groom. This is the one time that he has to let me hug him.

[ Laughter ] Oh. Listen, congratulations, you two. Thank you, monica. Yes, welcome to the family — again. Well, I, for one, am very glad to have another ally. Well, I can’t wait.

[ Chuckles ] It was a beautiful ceremony. Thank you again for inviting me. Of course. And the handsome groom.

[ Whispering indistinctly ] Mrs. Morgan. I’ll see you at the reception.

[ Coughing ] Hey, you need to get yourself checked out by a doctor. No, I’m fine.

[ Coughs ] Alright, if the doctor says you’re fine, I’ll stop bugging you, but you may have an injury you’re unaware of. Well, maybe I’ll go and see the doctor later. Right now, my focus is on mike. He was in that fire a lot longer than I was. Okay, I know who he is.

Sonny. I’m not delusional. I never said you were. You haven’t been thinking clearly for months. Look, I know there’s no love lost between you and carly, and you may not care how she’s affected by this, but sonny is a father, and his kids have been missing him for almost a year. And that includes josslyn. You remember when you and i were dating, how close you got with her? Well, she’s been missing her stepfather f-for months. That must mean something to you. This has to stop. Nina, you understand that this has to stop, right? I am not gonna keep this secret. Keeping sonny from his kids would just be cruel. Oh, good. Doctor, how is he?

[ Sighs ] How is he? He’s conscious, but he’s inhaled a lot of smoke and he’s suffered some burns.

[ Coughs ] Yeah, yeah. But he’s gonna be okay, right? The doctor said it’s a miracle it’s nothing more serious.

[ Chuckles ] Can I see him? He wants to see you. Okay. Jax: Nina. Don’t do it. Let the doctors deal with him.

[ Groans ] You should really lie back, especially after everything you’ve been through. You okay? Oh, yeah, I’m fine, thanks to you and jax. You know, mike, if you didn’t risk your life to save mine, then I don’t know — my name’s not mike. It’s sonny. You’ve always known that. I remember everything, nina. And I mean everything.

Come on, joss. People are waiting. Oh, I know. I was just thinking, you know, most of my friends don’t believe in marriage, and, you know, that makes complete sense. I mean, mom’s been divorced. My dad’s been divorced. Trina’s parents are divorced. Cam’s mom’s divorced. But I don’t know, just seeing mom and jason be so excited to commit to each other, I just… I find it so refreshing and encouraging. Or am I just being hopelessly naive?

[ Chuckles ] I would use a lot of words to describe you, josslyn, but naive is not one of them. Well, you know, the whole notion that everybody just gets one great love in their life — I mean, if that was the case, I-I already had oscar, so does that mean I’m just gonna be alone for the next 60 years? Is that what the universe wants? Josslyn, I can’t imagine any universe would want you to be alone for the rest of your life. Well, what about you and willow? I mean, I know the first time you guys got married, it was to secure custody of wiley, but, I mean, would you guys get married again? But this time because you’re in love? Well, I don’t — look, I don’t wanna get ahead of things, but yeah, it’s definitely a possibility. This is such a happy day. Alright, alright, let’s get out there. We don’t want to miss what happens next. Okay, okay. Vincent, I-I know you said to go ahead without you, but you can ask around, patience isn’t exactly my strong suit. Um, and I-I just don’t want you to miss anything. I’m sorry, gladys, but something’s come up. I have some business to attend to. It can’t wait? I was really looking forward to dancing with you. If I can wrap it up quickly, I’d be happy to dance with you.

[ Sighs ] Mom? Brando. Everything okay? Can you make sure that your mother has a good time at the reception? I have to sort out some business. I’ll join you if I can. I’m gonna hold you to that. Come on. Let’s join everyone. From what I hear, the reception should be a real blowout. Guests are all happy. The bride and groom are smiling. Nice job, wedding planner maxie. You can relax for a little bit now. A wedding planner’s job is not done until the last tuna tartare has been eaten and the final dance is over. But still, I have to wonder why jax was calling me. I mean, he never calls me, and he knows I’m at a wedding. Granted, it’s not a wedding he’s very happy about, but still, it’s carly and jason’s big day.

[ Laughter ] It was one thing to hear the truth about mike — sonny. It was another to see it for myself. That man in there with mike’s face is someone different. Kind and appreciative, but a whole different energy. Yeah, you just met sonny corinthos. And nina knew who he was the entire time? Unfortunately, yes, she did. I can see it in your eyes. They’re different now. It took a near-death experience to remind me who I was before I washed up in nixon falls. Well, the good news is, I don’t have to lie anymore. We can start from scratch. You know, knowing who you were before and knowing the kind of connection that we made together. Do you really believe that? Listen, t-the name “mike” may be false, but the way we feel about each other is real. Why did you do it? Well, if you remember everything — your memories as sonny but also your memories as mike — then you already know the answer. Okay. You have your bubble makers ready? Yes, ma’am. Bubble makers? Locked and loaded! Perfect. Here you go. Thank you. Okay, people. It’s time for bubbles.

[ Laughter ] Hey. You guys better head to the reception, ’cause if not, you’re gonna be drowning in bubbles.

[ Laughs ]

[ Cheering ]

[ Crowd awws ]

[ Car door closes ] Now that we’re alone, not to mention away from gladys, we can speak freely. I know you have questions. This plan — is it cyrus renault’s idea? Renault’s in maximum security, and that’s not changing. Cyrus is right about one thing. The world is about to be a better place without jason and carly in it. Whew. We did it. And despite a church full of quartermaines and corinthos and business associates, lightning didn’t even strike the steeple. Okay, let’s not get overconfident.

[ Laughs ] We still have a whole reception to make it through. I’m not worried. I’m not worried. We deserve our happy ending and we’re gonna get it or die trying.

No. Hello? Yeah, okay. I understand. Yeah, I’ll see you soon. Let me guess. G.H. Needs you? Aw. Save me a piece of cake? Yeah, you got it. You don’t approve of maxie’s date? Dr. Austin gatlin-holt? I barely know the man.

[ Laughs ] I highly doubt that. Okay, I barely know the man personally. I am well-acquainted with his data, history, and online presence. You did a deep dive. For good reason. He’s challenging edward’s will and he wants a piece of elq. Who’s representing him? Scott baldwin, I believe. I wonder why no one reached out to me. I did the probate for edward’s will. I know all of the provisions. What say you and I go and get to know dr. Gatlin-holt a little bit better? Oh, by all means. You know, if you’ll excuse the observation, he does appear to be hovering a little close to maxie. Perhaps you could give her a break. I’m sure she would be most grateful. As would I.

[ Laughs ] You had it? Dr. Austin gatlin-holt, I presume. Hello. Hi. Hi. We haven’t met. I’m diane miller. Oh, pleasure. You’re a quartermaine. They’re just coming out of the woodwork. Come, tell me things about yourself. Alright. Excuse me. Okay. Did you ask diane to do that? Well, I just thought you might want a moment alone to pass along the instructions for the deejay. Oh, right. Did he get back to you? Wasn’t it sweet of vincent to promise to meet me at the reception? That’s not exactly what I heard, but maybe if we’re lucky, novak’s business will keep him busy all night. I hope fatherhood teaches you to be more trusting of people. Not everyone is out for number one. How am I supposed to know your reasons for keeping my true identity a secret? I want you to think back to earlier today, when phyllis and I, we were trapped in that fire. You told me that you love me, and that gave me the strength to fight for my life and survive that fire. Doesn’t — doesn’t that prove to you that what we have is real? I can’t d– I cannot do it. I got to go see my wife and kids. No, listen, listen. If you leave here, I want you to know something. That I honestly — I honestly love you. Don’t say that. So, when we were in the receiving line, mrs. Wu whispered something to you. What did she say? She was, uh, confirming something I already knew. Our little wedding surprise should be happening at any moment. Oh, right. That idiot gladys stole my pocket square. Relax. The device has been planted. Mr. And mrs. Morgan’s love story is about to come to a brief and violent end.

[ Beeping ] Okay, driver, step on it. We can’t wait to go celebrate with our family and friends.

[ Engine starts ]

[ Explosion ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Chad: Home, sweet home.

Abigail: Yeah.

Gwen: Leave me alone!

Abigail: Leave you alone? I want you and that baby out of my life for good!

[Abigail grunts]

[Gwen screams]


Julie: So tell me, who is this?

Doug: Sweet abigail.

Julie: And this.

Doug: Bonnie raitt, the blues singer.

[Laughs] I-I’m joking. Honey, that’s maggie, of course. But there is a resemblance, don’t you think?

Julie: Well, yes, and we love them both. But doug, there’s a time for humor. This isn’t it.

Doug: Well, I think we have tested my memory enough for one morning.

Julie: Darling, I’m sorry. I know this is tedious. It’s–it’s just that I’m so worried about you.

Doug: I know, sweetheart. I know. I wish I could explain my recent behavior, but I honestly don’t know what’s come over me.

Julie: Well, kayla will be here soon, and hopefully kayla will have some answers.

Roman: All right. One chai latte.

Kayla: Thank you very much.

Roman: You know, I checked on doug last night. Julie said they, uh, took him in for some tests.

Kayla: Yeah. I’m headed over to get the results right now and take them over to them.

Roman: Okay, well, I hope it’s good news.

Kayla: Yeah. We’ll see you.

Roman: Okay, good to see you, sis.

Kayla: Hey!

Lucas: Hello. Great.

Kate: For you.

Roman: You know, most people don’t bring food into a restaurant.

Kate: Okay, well, this isn’t just food. We stopped by sweet bits, and we picked up some apple cider doughnuts, freshly made by your granddaughter.

Roman: Oh, oh, man.

Lucas: I know, I know.

Roman: What a great way to start the day.

Kate: I know, seriously. Allie and chanel, I’m telling you, they’re gonna give you some competition. They had a line out the door.

Roman: You must be very proud of her.

Lucas: I am, I am, yeah. I just wish that sami was here to help, you know, celebrate allie’s success. Have you, uh, have you heard from her?

Roman: Not a peep. I’m thinking sami is licking her wounds after her marriage to ej fell apart.

Ej: Guess what today is.

Johnny: [Sighs] Do I have to?

Ej: Take your son to work day.

Johnny: You sure it’s not groundhog day? ‘Cause I feel like we keep having this convo over and over.

Ej: I don’t know what you mean.

Johnny: Well, you say, “son, I want you to work for dimera,” and then I say, “dad, I’m following my dreams and making a movie.” Then you do your huffy-stuffy british thing and stomp out, only to return, act like nothing ever happened, and start the whole conversation over again.

Ej: Mm. Perhaps I’m hoping you’ll eventually come to your senses.

Johnny: My senses are just fine, dad. And I’m all in on making this film.

Ej: You’re not still planning to make the movie about your mother, are you?

Johnny: That is exactly what I’m doing.

Marlena: Mmm.

John: I cannot get over how incredible allie’s doughnuts are. And I want to thank you for saving me one.

Marlena: Hey, that wasn’t easy, you know.

John: Well, it was nice of paulina to bring you some. Mmm, mmm.

Marlena: It was, yes, it was.

John: Pretty ambitious kids, huh? Allie’s got her bakery going, johnny wants to make a movie.

Marlena: Yes, well, he’s gonna have to raise some money for that.

John: Yeah, yeah, yeah. He said he was eyeballing us to invest.

Marlena: He’s trying to charm his way into my pocketbook.

John: Any idea what the film’s about?

Marlena: Uh, yeah it’s about, uh, it’s about sami.

John: Excuse me?

Marlena: It’s about sami. Johnny feels he wants to work on something that he’s personally close to. I suggested he talk to will, because of course will, you know, is familiar with show business, and turns out that johnny is now going to direct the script that will wrote.

John: “Sami brady story.”

Marlena: Yes, that one.

John: Yeah, mm-hmm.

Marlena: You have some feelings about that?

John: Yeah. I think it’s really a terrible idea.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]


Ej: You’re making a movie based on will’s old script.

Johnny: Why not?

Ej: Well, for one thing, it’s already been rejected by several studios.

Johnny: Some tweaking, fresh vision.

Ej: What about exploiting your family?

Johnny: Hardly. Mom collaborated with will. Obviously she didn’t object.

Ej: What if I object?

Johnny: Well, I could always write you out. It’s not like you’re vital to the story.

Ej: How could I not be? I was the love of your mother’s life.

Johnny: Really? ‘Cause from what I’ve read, I’d say that title belongs to lucas.

Marlena: Look, are you concerned about the money? I know it’s a risky investment.

John: No, no, no, no, no. I’m not worried about that. I’m more concerned about– well, I’m more concerned about just dredging up the past and putting it out there for the whole world to see.

Marlena: What do you mean?

John: Well, doc, I’m guessing that there’s probably one significant moment in sami’s history that’s gonna be in that film, something that she witnessed, that unfortunately changed her life forever.

[Apprehensive music]


Marlena: Oh, that.

John: Oh, that.

[ “The addams family” theme playing ]

Kayla: How are you feeling today, doug?

Doug: Just fine.

Kayla: No further incidents?

Doug: You mean, have i grabbed anybody’s behind besides my wife’s? No.

Julie: Doug.

Doug: I’m so embarrassed. I-I don’t understand why I did that.

Julie: Well, that’s why kayla’s here.

Doug: Yeah.

Julie: To give us some answers, and I understand that you have the results of the mri now.

Kayla: Yes, I do. Um, we looked for structural changes in the brain, damage that could have been caused by a stroke. We also looked for shrinkage in the cortex or decreased volume in his hippocampus. Either one of those would show signs of early alzheimer’S.

Julie: Well, what did you find?

Marlena: I don’t think that johnny is going to portray how his mother found out we were having an affair.

John: Sweetheart.

[Sighs] That moment of betrayal was the catalyst that drove sami’s actions for years. I don’t see how johnny tells her story without that context.

Marlena: I suppose you’re right. But listen, the thing is that, you know, what happened between us really is no secret. And look, I’m not proud of it, but I’ve adjusted to it.

John: So have I. But what about roman, hmm? I mean, I’m not so sure that he would appreciate being reminded of a very painful time in his life.

Marlena: And don’t you think that johnny is gonna run that past his grandfather?

John: I don’t know.

Marlena: Well, I don’t think that roman really would mind. You know, look, we’re all good friends now. I think roman has moved on with his life.

Roman: All right. Glad you’re still here.

Kate: So did you get those doughnuts put away all safe and sound so no one can get at them?

Roman: Yes, I did, why?

Kate: Um, and did you maybe have one yourself?

Roman: How can you tell?

Kate: [Laughs] Uh, powdered sugar. Dead giveaway.

Roman: [Laughs] Right here? Right there?

Kate: No, not right there. Let-let me help you. Uh, no–don’t–that– there you go. There you go. That is perfect.

Roman: Well, thank you, ma’am.

Kate: [Laughs]

Roman: You, me, and doughnuts, man. Remember how our wedding cake got ruined?

Kate: Oh, my gosh. Seriously, the salem stalker made it look like the cake was oozing blood.

Lucas: Oh, yeah, I remember that, good times.

Roman: Yeah, and then alice saved the day by providing that tower of doughnuts.

Kate: You know, it was really such a beautiful reception. It was. Until the groom appeared to be killed.

Lucas: We need one normal wedding in salem, just once. Please.

Roman: I ended up on the island of melaswen. Not exactly the honeymoon getaway I was expecting.

Kate: Yeah, well you and victor didn’t enjoy those romantic walks by the–by the beach?

Roman: You know, victor didn’t exactly fill out a sarong the way you did.

Kate: Oh, wow.

Roman: And still do.

Kate: Thank you.

Roman: You know what, i need to get back to the kitchen. Good to see you both.

Lucas: All right. What was that?

Kate: What?

Lucas: That-that whole thing.

Kate: What-what whole thing?

Lucas: Don’t-don’t do that. Don’t be coy with me. Tell me the truth. You two hooking up again?

Ej: That’s absurd. Lucas is not the great love of samantha’s life.

Johnny: Maybe you should read the screenplay. Mom and lucas aren’t even a real couple, yet the chemistry’s already off the charts. You can tell they’re totally meant for each other.

Ej: Of course, will made it sound that way. Lucas is his father.

Johnny: I don’t know. Almost 30 years later, mom and lucas still can’t keep their hands off each other, despite your “great love.”

Ej: I realize you enjoy getting under my skin. But watch yourself, john roman. Take it too far, and you might just live to regret it.

[Tense music]


Abigail: “Welcome home, mommy. We love you.” Oh, gosh.

Chad: [Sighs] You okay?

Abigail: Our kids are the best.

Chad: They did not want to leave their mom.

Abigail: Well, yeah. Any excuse to skip school, right?

Chad: Mm-hmm. I can’t think of a better reason. I was firm, though: School comes first. Although those kids, they drive a hard bargain. I had to promise we’ll have a special “welcome home, mommy” dinner tonight.

Abigail: Oh, great. ‘Cause, you know, charlotte’s definition of special is usually jelly beans and ice cream.

Chad: Yeah. And probably some chocolate chip cookies for dessert.

Abigail: [Laughs] Ugh.

[Sighs] Thank you.

Chad: For what?

Abigail: Just making me realize it was time to come home.

Chad: Let’s get you settled in. I’ll, uh, I’ll bring up your bags up to our room.

Abigail: Uh, can we just, um, can we wait a second? Serena: It’s my 3:10

Kayla: Based on your mri results, there were no signs of bleeding, a stroke, or a tumor. I didn’t see the presence of biomarkers that would raise any red flags. There was some shrinkage of your brain volume, but that is not unexpected at your age.

Doug: So can you rule out alzheimer’s?

Kayla: No, not yet. Not every patient who has the disease shows clear biomarkers.

Julie: So where do we go from here?

Kayla: I can order a pet scan, and that might find more markers. But it’s expensive.

Julie: I don’t care. I don’t care if it costs the moon. We’ll-we’ll do whatever is necessary to get to the bottom of this, kayla.

Doug: Yeah. What she said, yeah.

Kayla: We are gonna find out what’s going on with you, doug, I promise. This is why I think it might be a good idea for you to see marlena. She can more generally assess if you are having some kind of dementia. Shall I give her a call?

[Apprehensive music]

Marlena: You really don’t want johnny making this movie, do you?

John: Isn’t there another script he could film? You know, maybe one about– aw, hell, I don’t know, a-a talking dog. Everybody loves talking dogs.

Marlena: I don’t think that’s what he wants to do.

John: Well, maybe not, but the past is sometimes best left in the past, doc.

Marlena: So are you concerned about him revisiting our affair?

John: Sweetheart, what we did, the scandal of it, not only destroyed your marriage and your family, but it left you feeling alone, isolated, a pariah in a town that had loved you. And because you were so vulnerable, it led to the darkest time in your life.

Kate: Why on earth would you think that roman and I are involved?

Lucas: Blatant flirting.

Kate: Seriously? I was getting powdered sugar off his cheek.

Lucas: What about that whole thing with the sarong? I mean, come on, I was right here.

Kate: Oh, come on, that was merely a statement of fact, so.

Lucas: So you’re not sneaking into each other’s rooms at night, reliving the past?

Kate: No, we’re saving that for you and sami.

Lucas: Oh! Walked into that one, didn’t I?

Kate: Mm-hmm.

Lucas: Yeah, well. What’s that? What are you looking for?

Kate: I’m not–I’m not looking for anything.

Lucas: Really? You want my opinion?

Kate: No, actually, I don’t want your opinion at all.

Lucas: I think you and roman are great together. You were great together, you know, back in the day.

Kate: Yeah, back in the day. That’s past tense, lucas.

Lucas: Well, it doesn’t have to be. I mean, you said yourself, he’s interested in getting back together with you.

Kate: He talked about that months ago. He hasn’t said anything since.

Lucas: Well, every man’s got his pride. Probably felt rejected.

Kate: Yeah, or he’s just not interested, so.

Lucas: Or you should just talk to him and ask him. You could do that.

Kate: God, what is this all about? Why are you making something that is absolutely not your business your business?

Lucas: That’s not a “no,” is it?

Johnny: Lucas!

Lucas: Johnny! What’s up, man?

Johnny: Hey, man.

Lucas: Good to see you!

Johnny: Good to see you too.

Lucas: Getting big.

Johnny: Old man.

Lucas: Hey, easy on the old man stuff. I still got it.

Johnny: Kate. Beautiful as ever.

Kate: Oh, what a sweet talker, just like your dad. Who is so excited that you are back in town. He can’t wait to get you into the family business.

Johnny: Well, unfortunately for him, I’ve got plans of my own, and with any luck, I’m about to be one step closer to making my dream come true.

Chad: What’s wrong?

Abigail: It’s just that before I went to boston, we were sleeping in separate rooms.

Chad: Yeah. No, I know. I just, I was– I thought that maybe– I was hoping that things– things would be different.

Abigail: Well, we discussed we have a lot of things to work out, and I think that I’d just feel more comfortable doing that if we were sleeping in separate beds.

Chad: Okay.

Abigail: Okay. Is that a problem?

Chad: No.

Abigail: ‘Cause you said you’d be with me every step of the way on this.

Chad: I know, and I meant it. Whatever you need. But we are gonna have to have a conversation with the kids.

Abigail: Yeah, I mean, yeah. We were sleeping in separate beds when I went to boston. So I think we should just talk to them again, and I think they’re gonna understand.

Chad: What about everyone else?

Abigail: Every–what? Are you embarrassed?

Chad: Ah, no. Just, certain people are gonna– are gonna have an opinion.

Abigail: Certain people? I mean…

Ej: Abigail! What a lovely surprise!

Abigail: Ej. On the outside, I looked fine.

Marlena: You’re right. I was in a bad place after sami found out about our affair. But this movie is about sami, not about me.

John: Well, what happened next, it affected sami as well. And this is not a subject that johnny should be messing with.

Marlena: John–

John: You know what I’m talking about, doc. This opened the door–

[Phone ringing]

Marlena: It’s kayla. I need to take it. Kayla, hi, good morning.

Kayla: Hi, um, I hope I’m not interrupting anything.

Marlena: Oh, uh, no. Uh, what can I do for you?

Kayla: It’s about doug. Um, he’s showing some signs of cognitive decline, and his test results didn’t reveal anything definitive. I was hoping that maybe you could see him, and you could weigh in with an assessment.

Marlena: Of course. I’d be glad to. Um, I don’t have a very busy morning at work. I’ll, uh, I’ll come to the hospital right now.

Kayla: That would be great. Thank you.

Marlena: Okay. See you soon. I’ve got to–I’ve got to get to the hospital. Can we pick up this conversation about johnny later?

John: Of course we can. I love you, doc.

Marlena: I love you.

[Apprehensive music]

Lucas: Big plans, huh? What, are you gonna open a bakery like your sister?

Roman: Hey, look what the cat dragged in! I was beginning to think you were avoiding me.

Johnny: Grandpa. I’m sorry, I’ve been kind of busy.

Roman: Yeah, what, getting in trouble?

Johnny: Actually, I’ve been working on my dream project.

Lucas: Yeah, he was just about to tell us all about it. Right?

Kate: Right.

Johnny: I’m gonna make a movie. And I’m hoping that you would consider investing in the future of your favorite grandchild.

Roman: Okay. All right, that is why you finally came to visit!

Johnny: Oh, come on, gramps, you know I missed you.

Roman: Uh-huh, sure, sure. How much do– how much do you need?

Johnny: Well, that’s up to you, um. I’m hitting up multiple investors, including grandma marlena. She’s actually the one who gave me the idea for the movie.

Kate: Uh. What’s it about?

Johnny: I am going to direct will’s screenplay about my mom’s life.

Lucas: Oh.

Roman: That’s a great idea.

Johnny: I’m glad you think so; my, uh, my dad hates the idea.

Lucas: Oh, really? Why?

Johnny: Yeah, he thinks, uh– he just thinks my mom won’t like it, which is ridiculous, ’cause she approved will’s script years ago when she moved us all out to california. Obviously, she didn’t have a problem with it then, so she should be cool with it now. But I wanted to get your input first.

Roman: About?

Johnny: There’s the whole thing about grandma marlena’s affair, and, you know, I just didn’t want it to bring up any stuff.

Roman: You know what, ancient history, man, so I’m good. Just as long as you get somebody very dashing and very handsome to play me. I’m thinking george clooney.

Johnny: Okay, all right, I’ll see what I can do.

Roman: All right, count me in.

Johnny: All right, thank you. I’m gonna make you proud.

Roman: I’m willing to bet my money on that.

Johnny: So lucas, do you have any interest in, uh, backing my movie?

Ej: I didn’t know you were here!

Chad: Yeah, we just got back.

Abigail: Oh, hi. Uh, you all right?

Ej: Oh, I just worked out a little too hard yesterday. I’m finally back to my old self.

Chad: For better or worse.

Abigail: Well, it’s, uh, it’s great to see you healthy and home.

Ej: You as well. I’m glad my little brother took my advice to go off and fight for you.

Chad: What?

Abigail: Oh, uh. I didn’t realize it was your idea.

Chad: No, it wasn’t his idea. I came–it wasn’t your idea. I came to boston because I wanted to see you, and I wanted to be able to try to work things out.

Ej: It doesn’t matter who takes credit for bringing abigail back, does it? The important thing is that you’re home.

Doug: So doc, what’s your opinion? Do you think I have dementia?

Marlena: Well, doug, there’s nothing really conclusive here yet, but I hope to know more after I’ve run some tests.

Doug: Marlena, if I confess something to you, do you promise to keep it just between us?

Marlena: You’re my patient. Anything-anything you tell me will be held in strict confidence.

Doug: Well, I’ve been insisting to julie that I’m just fine. But down deep, I can feel it– there is something wrong with me. I say and do strange things, and I don’t know why. I just pray that you can help me.

Marlena: I will do everything I can to help you, doug.

Lucas: Uh, are you sure you want to take money from a guy who ruined your dad’s marriage?

Johnny: Hey, that’s between you and my dad. You’ve always been good to me. And you’re my twin sister’s father, so there’s the family thing. There’s also one other factoid you might find interesting.

Kate: All right, I’ll bite. What?

Johnny: You’re kind of a big part in the movie.

Lucas: I am?

Johnny: Yeah. The way the script reads, you were the love of my mom’s life, not my dad.

Kate: Wow. So I bet you couldn’t wait to tell ej that.

Lucas: Yeah, I’m sure that went over real well, didn’t it?

Johnny: It might have pushed a few buttons.

Lucas: Well, that’s, uh, good enough for me. I’ll sign a check right now.

Johnny: Okay! All right! Thank you!

Lucas: No, thank you.

Johnny: Okay, um. Kate, is there any chance you–

Kate: Oh, sorry, spielberg, but I don’t want to get into hot water with your daddy because he signs my paychecks, and i want to keep that happening.

Johnny: Fair enough. I understand. I’ve still got some other investors to hit up, so. Thank you both for your support. It means a lot, especially since my dad’s being such a jerk about all this.

Ej: So, when I walked in, did I hear you’ll be staying in separate rooms?

Chad: Uh, that’s none of your business.

Ej: Relax. As a man who’s own marriage has recently imploded, I am a champion of unions where love wins the day. And I know yours will too. That’s why I want you to know that chad feels nothing but regret and disgust with himself for letting your scheming sister manipulate him–

Chad: Dude, would you shut up? I don’t need you speaking for me.

Ej: I’m just trying to help.

Chad: Okay, you want to help? Then why don’t you give us some privacy? I thought you were supposed to be at the office! Aren’t you–aren’t you– weren’t you supposed to bring johnny in with you today?

Ej: I was, but he’s refusing to even consider working at dimera. And that is on you. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Chad: Are you still on this? It’s not my fault that johnny doesn’t want to work for dimera.

Ej: I asked you to convince him dimera’s where he belongs. Instead, you encouraged him to follow his ridiculous dream of making movies.

Chad: He’s a grown man. He should be able to make his own choices in life.

Ej: His choice has been to party his way through europe for the last few years.

Chad: He’s a smart kid!

Ej: Who needs direction!

Chad: It sounds you’d prefer a choke chain.

Ej: You’re supposed to be working with me to steer this family in the right direction. That was the whole point of taking this company back. And yet you take pleasure in egging johnny on to defy me!

Chad: No, johnny’s doing a damn good job of that himself!

Ej: Perhaps you could persuade your husband to remember where his loyalties lie.

Abigail: Actually, I think you’re trying to put chad in between you and your son, and now you’re trying to put me between you and chad, which is not gonna happen, because I’m not gonna take the bait.

Kate: So that was very generous of you to invest in johnny’s film. Although your ulterior motives were compatibility transparent.

Lucas: What do you mean? It’s like johnny said, it’s about family. You know me, I’d do anything for family.

Kate: Yeah, uh-huh, yeah. And sticking it to ej had absolutely nothing to do with it, right?

Lucas: Mm. I don’t want to talk about that. I’d rather talk about what we were discussing before johnny came in. We were talking about you and roman.

Kate: Lucas, there is no me and roman.

Lucas: You still hung up on jake?

Kate: No!

Lucas: Well, then give roman a chance! What’s the problem?

Roman: Chance for what?

[Knock at door]

John: Yeah, hold on. Hey, my namesake!

Johnny: Grandpa john!

John: How you doing, kid?

Johnny: It’s good to see you.

John: Come on in, come on in!

Johnny: I’m sorry for not stopping by sooner.

John: No, no, no, no, it’s all right. Grandma says you’ve been a bit busy.

Johnny: Yeah, is she, uh, she around?

John: No, no, she just got called into work. You just missed her.

Johnny: Oh, did she happen to mention my project to you?

John: Yeah, yeah. In fact, we were–we were just discussing it.

Johnny: And?

John: Well, kid, to be honest with you, uh, I’ve got a– I’ve got a few concerns about the script.

Johnny: I didn’t realize you were such a film critic.

John: [Chuckles] No, it’s, uh–let’s just say that I’m-I’m a little apprehensive about putting her life out there like that.

Johnny: You mean grandma marlena’s affair.

John: Yeah, for one thing, yeah. You know, people like– well, like your grandpa roman. You know, he might not be that comfortable with that.

Johnny: Actually, I just spoke with him, and he’s on board. And he is investing. So if that’s the only thing stopping you from investing–

John: Well, actually, it’s not the only thing. I’ve got some other concerns as well.

Johnny: Like what?

John: [Sighs] Hey, I’ll tell you what, let me finish having this conversation with grandma, and then I’ll circle back with you as soon as possible, okay?

Johnny: Okay. Hey, no worries. No pressure. I’m good with whatever you guys decide, so. I’m gonna go finish reading the script.

John: Wait. You haven’t even finished the script yet?

Johnny: Well, no, but it’s about mom’s life, so I gotta know all the major plot points, right?

John: Hey, hey, johnny, listen.

Johnny: Yo.

John: How do you feel about movies with talking dogs?

Johnny: Uh… [Laughs] Why?

John: Never mind.

Johnny: Okay.

Marlena: Doug, are you all right with me recording our session?

Doug: Oh, yes, sure.

Marlena: Great. Now, I would like to start off by discussing some of your recent moments of cognitive dissonance. I-I understand that you’ve been, uh, mixing up people’s names?

Doug: Well, apparently I– I confused you with vivian alamain. Sorry about that.

Marlena: It’s okay. I’ll find some way to forgive you for that.

Doug: [Chuckles] I feel worse, really, about forgetting tom and alice. I mean, goodness, how could I ever forget them? They meant so much to me.

Marlena: Having a–having a lapse in memory doesn’t mean they’re any less meaningful to you. So please, don’t feel guilty about it.

Doug: Well, I do feel guilty. I groped paulina price, for pete’s sake. Completely inappropriate.

Marlena: Yeah. You have any idea why you did that?

Doug: No. It just-just horrified julie. All this has been so hard on her.

Marlena: Julie told me that you–you locked her in the freezer by accident.

Doug: That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.

Ej: I see you two are still a united front, even if you are sleeping in separate bedrooms.

Abigail: Like chad said, that’s none of your business.

Ej: My apologies. Chad, I’ll see you in the office. Abigail, again, lovely to see you, and welcome home.

Chad: I’m so sorry. That’s so embarrassing. I–that’s not–that’s not how I planned to welcome you home.

Abigail: Well, like you said, home, sweet home, huh?

Lucas: Oh, man, I got some errands to run. Excuse me; I’ll be back. Lost track of time.

Roman: Okay, um. What was that all about?

Kate: Well, lucas was just giving me some advice.

Roman: Advice from a man who just slept with his married ex-wife.

Kate: Uh, twice.

Roman: Was it good advice?

Kate: Lucas thinks that we should get back together.

Roman: I see. And what do you think about that?

Kayla: Here you go.

Julie: Thank you.

Kayla: Julie, I know how hard this is. I went through something very similar with my own mother. It was hard to watch her forget her loved ones.

Julie: But at least caroline had a reprieve. The last years of her life– if doug has alzheimer’s– it’s just, all the days of our lives have been so wonderful. Years and years, much more than most people ever get. I want more! I’m sorry. So selfish of me.

Kayla: No, it’s not. Listen, I am not giving up hope. And you shouldn’t, either.

Marlena: I’m sorry. Did you say–

Doug: That I locked her in on purpose? You heard that. You heard right. It was the most fun I had all week.

Marlena: I’m sure you don’t mean that. I think you’re just confused.

Doug: No, marlena, you are the one who’s confused. [Laughs] I am not doug.


[Foreboding music]

Johnny: What the hell? Grandma marlena was possessed by the devil?

Marlena: Of course you’re doug. You’re doug williams. I’m marlena evans.

Doug: I know exactly, exactly who you are.

[In deep voice] It’s been over 25 years, marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?

[ Dramatic music ]

Carter: Quinn.

Quinn: I don’t know if it’s safe for me to come in.

Carter: It’s safe.

Quinn: Well, you’re… probably wondering why I’m here. Eric sent me.

Finn: Everyone’s down in there. Steffy fell asleep with hayes.

Paris: Aw, that’s so sweet. Well, I don’t blame her. She does so much.

Finn: Yeah. And until recently, she had something else to deal with. Something not so pleasant.

Paris: You mean sheila.

Finn: Yeah. And every time I look at my son I– I hear steffy’s voice. The fear just underneath the surface, desperation. You know steffy. She’s a warrior. She’s not afraid of anything. Not until sheila got into the picture. I mean, for her to be so adamant about keeping sheila away from hayes, it’s–

Paris: Can I… do you mind if I ask you a question?

Finn: No, not at all?

Paris: How do you really feel about all of this?

Finn: I try not to think about how I feel.

Paris: Well, I don’t think that’s a good idea.

Finn: I’m too conflicted. Too removed. Yes, sheila is my birth mother but I don’t know her. Steffy and the forrester’s do and they all say the same thing. That she’s psychotic and dangerous. I mean, she is a threat to the family and to my newborn son. She gets fixated on things and may even try to take hayes.

Paris: Well, people change. Maybe she’s not the same person that she was before.

Finn: No one believes that.

Paris: Do you?

Finn: I believe people can change. Whether or not sheila has, I couldn’t tell you. Her wishes and her instincts.

Paris: Wow. I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you.

[ Door knocking ]

Eric: Already?

Ridge: Hey, it’s us.

Eric: Yeah, so I see. Here to take another crack at your old man?

Brooke: Will it help?

Ridge: No, you didn’t sign these before you left.

Brooke: We wanted

Eric: Well, as you can see, I’m fine.

Ridge: As we can see, you’re drinking alone. Where’s quinn?

Carter: Eric sent you?

Quinn: Yeah, he, uh,

Qnnui: Yeah, he, uh, he asked me to deliver this. Says it’s sensitive material and you need to have it right away.

Carter: Don’t you think that’s odd?

Quinn: You know what, carter, I don’t even know what to think anymore. Take it. (Lucky) uh-oh the magic’s disappearing!

Paris: Not to put you on the spot, but doesn’t a little part of you want to know sheila?

Finn: I mean, under different circumstances, it’s only natural, right?

Paris: That’s what I’ve been saying. It’s only natural. That desire deserves to be given consideration.

Finn: Did you not hear the “under different circumstances”? Sheila has done terrible things to the forrester’S. Criminal things. She shot steffy’s mother. Of course, steffy’s gonna hate her.

Paris: Yeah, well, you can know that and still feel a sense of loss. It sucks that you can’t share that with steffy because of their history. I know it must be hard for you.

Finn: Well, thankfully, I’ve got you. You’re a good friend, paris.

Paris: Well, I’ll always be here for you, finn. You and steffy. So, steffy really thinks sheila faked the collapse?

Finn: She doesn’t think it. She’s convinced. She has been from the start.

Paris: You’re a doctor. Wouldn’t you know if sheila was faking?

Finn: Honestly, I don’t know. My objectivity might be compromised. But it really doesn’t matter. Steffy doesn’t want sheila around and I stand by my wife.

Paris: Speaks to the kind of partner you are. Steffy insisting that there’s no middle ground. That you should shut sheila all the way out, period? I’m just wondering if cutting ties with you birth mother forever is really how you wanna handle this.

Eric: I appreciate your concern, but why would my having a martini by myself here be a cause for alarm?

Brooke: Have to admit, it is kind of strange.

Eric: Really? Why?

Brooke: Quinn wanted nothing more but for you to forgive her for what she did with carter and take her back. And now that you have, you’re here drinking alone?

Ridge: Where’s your doting wife?

Eric: What if I told you she was upstairs reading a book?

Ridge: Is she?

Eric: No, she’s not. She’s out. She’s out enjoying herself.

Brooke: Enjoying herself? She can’t do that with you?

Eric: Well, I can’t win with the two of you, can I? You know, if she were here having a drink with me, you wouldn’t approve of that either.

Brooke: Well, at least we would know that she wasn’t with carter again.

Eric: Why would you say that?

Brooke: Eric, I don’t trust her. And neither should you.

Eric: Yeah, well I do. And look, she’s younger than I am, in case you haven’t noticed that.

Ridge: When did that become relevant?

Eric: Look, we’re in different stages of our life, all right? I don’t wanna hold her back.

Quinn: What does it say? Unless, of course, it’s for your eyes only.

Carter: “Tonight is yours”.

Quinn: I love my husband. What makes this impossible is I love you too.

Think wearing less makeup

means no need for a wipe?

Finn: I won’t lie. It has been surreal. I’ve wondered about my birth mother since I found out I was adopted. What did she look like? What was her personality, which is funny how things turn out because I never would have imagined this.

Paris: Yeah, how could you? Your birth mother turns out to be your wife’s worst nightmare. The woman who terrorized the family you married into.

Finn: The forrester’s all agreed, the best way to safeguard hayes and the family is to keep him away from sheila.

Paris: Do you agree?

Finn: I have to. I can’t take chances with my son’s welfare. On my wedding day, all of a sudden, there she was and I was amazed. I kept thinking, this can’t be happening.

Paris: I bet you were so happy.

Finn: Yeah, I was, but not for long. Talk about crashing back down to earth in a hurry. The forrester’s took one look and all hell broke loose. Nothing’s really been the same since.

Paris: Well, I’m sorry you’re dealing with such a challenging thing right now. But I really do admire you for standing with steffy. You’re an incredible man.

Brooke: I don’t understand, eric. How are you holding quinn back? She knew what she was getting into when she chose to marry an older man.

Ridge: Look, I’m not sure if it came out the way you wanted it to come out.

Brooke: That’s not what I meant. You’re not old, eric. In fact, you’re handsome and sexy.

Eric: There was a time I felt that way.

Ridge: See? That. What is that? You never used to do this, this self-deprecating thing. You’re one of the most confident guys I know.

Brooke: It’s true, what is that? Did quinn take away your confidence? See, this is what I’m talking about. She’s not good for you, eric. She is careless with your feelings.

Eric: No, quite the opposite. Quite the opposite. She’s been more attentive to my feelings lately than she ever has been before.

Brooke: Maybe for now, because you forgave her for her betrayal with carter. But just give her time and she may do something that disappoints you again. All I’m saying, eric, is that you deserve better.

Ridge: Dad, we’re concerned about you.

Eric: Well, you can stop that. Quinn’s not the problem. I am.

Carter: This is crazy. And I’ve made no secret about my feelings and I love you too, but this– this thing between us. It’s crazy.

Quinn: This is insane.

Carter: It’s insane. But it’s undeniable. I respected your decision to go back to your husband.

Quinn: I know.

Carter: And I want you to be happy, I really do. I do, but I can’t deny it, quinn. This connection that we have, this… this thing, quinn. I miss it and I miss you. I miss making love to you, I miss being with you and we kept our distance because we didn’t want to disrespect eric, but he’s pushing it, he’s pushing us. And it wouldn’t be disrespectful now. Would it?

[ Romantic percussive music ]

If you have postmenopausal


Paris: What?

Finn: Just grateful for you. Happy you came into my life.

Paris: Goes both ways.

Finn: Maybe. But I need you more.

Paris: You need me?

Finn: You understand me. Your empathy, it means so much to me during this strange time. Having a safe place to put the feelings I can’t burden steffy with.

Paris: Well you know you can talk to me about anything.

Finn: I do. And I appreciate that more than I can say. There is something so special about you, paris.

Finn: Paris? We’re in the clear. Steffy has hayes under control.

Paris: What?

Finn: No, it’s just– thanks for listening. For being there.

Paris: My pleasure. Any time.

Finn: You’re very special, you know that?

[ Dramatic music ]

Brooke: You’re the problem, not quinn? How could that be true?

Eric: Well it is, believe me.

Brooke: Eric, you keep defending her.

Eric: Somebody has to defend her.

Ridge: I know you’re joking, but you know what, none of this is funny. It’s not funny. We’re trying to protect you.

Brooke: She has proven that she can’t be trusted over and over again. She does something that’s unforgivable and you forgive her. You take her back, things are fine for a while, but then she does something else. I mean, my god, she slept with carter.

Eric: Yes, I’m well aware. I haven’t forgotten that. Look, this conversation is boring me–

Brooke: Eric, eric, we don’t mean to be tiresome. We just love you.

Eric: I know.

Brooke: You deserve to have a woman who gets everything she needs right here with you in your home. And I just don’t think that’s quinn. I mean, for all we know, she’s with somebody else as we speak. Look, I know you were devastated about quinn and carter, I just don’t want to see you hurt like that ever again.

Ridge: Goodnight.

Eric: I’m good.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victoria: So, you want to know how I’m dealing with ashland’s history? Well, I hardly think that’s an issue warranting a house call.

Nick: You know, if phyllis told me about some deep, dark secret that she was keeping from me and the rest of the world, i would have a problem with that.

Victoria: It really wouldn’t be that surprising. I mean, phyllis.

Nick: How are you not more bothered by this?

Victoria: Because nothing that ashland shared with our family is news to me, so I am definitely not in a state of shock. I should ask you how you’re feeling. I thought you were good with this big family discussion we had.

Nick: It was one revelation after another. I mean, he starts with the mysterious death of his mentor, and then the unexplained access to this fortune that allowed him to get his career started. And then he tells us that he literally erased his past and became somebody else. I mean, it’s a lot to digest, vick, but I’m not the one who’s marrying him.

Victoria: Well, I don’t love him any less, if that’s what you’re asking. And nothing and no one is gonna change that.

Lily: I mean, billy, ask yourself, if ashland were with anyone other than victoria, would you be this relentless? Would you care this much?

Ashland: I can answer that. No, he wouldn’t care a bit.

Billy: Don’t pretend to try and understand my motives.

Ashland: I’m sure your partner has brought you up to speed on what happened earlier.

Lily: Yes, he did.

Ashland: If it would be alright with you, I would like to spend a minute in private with billy, please.

Lily: Well, I have a meeting in the conference room, so you can use my office — if you both can be civil.

Billy: Oh, I will if he will.

Lily: And just remember, please, at the end of the day, what really matters here is that you both care about victoria and want what’s best for her.

Ashland: That’s a smart woman. You should listen to her. Victoria’s best interests should come first. And that’s why I told my story earlier, because I wanted to take the pressure off of victoria, to let those that are most important and that matter most to her, let them know that there’s no reason for them to worry about my past. I told the newmans everything there is to know. And you, as the father of her children, you were included, as a courtesy. Now, I would think you might want to reciprocate that courtesy and back off. Stop digging where you have no business digging.

Billy: I’m aware that you don’t hear this word very often — no. It’s not gonna happen. I’m not gonna do that because i am certain there’s a whole hell of a lot more to learn about you.

Ashland: [ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone rings ]

Sharon: Hi, adam.

Adam: Hey, um…I’m about to break the news to connor, and, um, I’m a little nervous.

Sharon: Everything’s gonna be fine. Just keep it simple.

Adam: Right.

Sharon: And be direct.

Adam: Open and honest, got it.

Sharon: But if you need more support, I am here, but you know what? Everything is gonna be fine, okay? Good luck.

Adam: Alright, thanks. I’m gonna need it. What you got there?

Connor: Apples and carrots to feed the horses. And a cookie for me.

Adam: Nice.

Connor: Ready to hit the stables?

Adam: Uh, after we talk about some things. Why don’t you come sit with me?

Connor: It’s about mom, isn’t it?

Adam: Yes, it is.

Victor: Hey, doc.

Nate: Victor.

Victor: How are you?

Nate: Always a pleasure.

Victor: Yeah.

[ Cellphone vibrates ] You know, there ought to be a special place in hell for people who cancel appointments at the last minute. Damn it.

Nate: Oh, wow, would’ve been nice if you were informed before you came here.

Victor: Yeah. Well, it’s not a total waste of time. I ran into you, so there’s something I’d like to discuss with you. Please have a seat. Pain hits fast.

Adam: I wanted to talk to you today because I think that you are old enough to understand some things.

Connor: Like what?

Adam: Your mom and I, we’re not gonna be living together when she comes back to genoa city.

Connor: I thought something was wrong for a while, but i didn’t think it was this bad. Are you sure you can’t work it out? Maybe if you talk to mom some more and spend time together.

Adam: Yeah, I’m sorry, connor. It’s not gonna change anything.

Connor: Is it my fault? Did I do something wrong?

Adam: No, no, no, not at all. Okay? We are so proud of you and we’re still gonna love you just as much as we did when we were together.

Connor: Then why?

Adam: Sometimes people grow apart even when they try not to.

Connor: Then try harder! You can’t just give up on people. You weren’t around when I was little, for years. When you came back, you promised we’d always be together.

Adam: I know I did.

Connor: So you lied?

Adam: Look, some promises, connor, are just impossible to keep, and it’s — it’s not that simple.

Connor: You say I have to keep my promises, but you get to break yours? Why?

Adam: Connor, calm down, okay? Just listen to me.

Connor: Why should I?

Adam: [ Sighs ] You know what? Why don’t we get out of here, huh?

Connor: And go where?

Adam: We’ll go see a friend, and she will help us talk all about this.

Victor: I’ve got to say, my wife has the midas touch when it comes to convincing people to donate money to her favorite charities. In this case, the hospital, you know? I mean, I don’t know how she does it, must be her charm, her smile. You know that the new wing of the hospital will be equipped with the most modern surgical equipment.

Nate: Oh, well, she’s phenomenal. You know, between her connections and experience, I am floored. I have a lot to learn.

Victor: So I understand that you got ashland locke to donate some money, as well. What’s your impression of him?

Nate: Uh, you know what? We actually struck up a friendship.

Victor: Huh.

Nate: He’s even extended an invitation to me and elena to attend his wedding.

Victor: How nice is that?

Nate: Yeah, well, we’re looking forward to celebrating with the happy couple.

Victor: Yeah.

Nate: You know, the more i learn about ashland, the more i like him, especially now that i have more of a sense of the man behind the myth.

Victor: What’s your take on him?

Nate: Well, you know, i respect the grace he’s shown in the way he’s chosen to handle his illness, as well as its treatment.

Victor: Now, I understand that in spite of the treatment, his condition is terminal.

Nate: Well, I don’t know the details of his case, but the survival rate is very low.

Victor: Ooh.

Nate: With luck, he’ll be able to celebrate his one-year anniversary.

Victor: Really?

Nate: And I’m sure he’s willing to fight for that. Love is a very powerful motivator.

Victor: Yeah, it certainly is, isn’t it?

Nate: I wish victoria and ashland the best for however long they have together.

Victor: Yeah. So do I.

Nick: Look, nobody expects you to love your fiancé any less, but I am curious — did ashland’s story make you change your perspective in any way?

Victoria: Of course it has. How could it not? It’s made me admire him even more. I mean, to carry around these awful memories of an abusive and cruel father, it had to have been just unbearable, nicholas, and somehow, he managed to persevere and to thrive. He refused to let what had happened to him in the past define who he could be in the future, and I’m not just talking about his professional success, I’m talking about how he overcame the cycle of violence and he became this wonderful father to harrison.

Nick: Okay, he made a better life for himself. Good for him. But don’t you think it’s even just a little bit weird that he won’t tell you what his real name is? You know, the person he was before he became ashland locke?

Victoria: No. Not really.

Nick: Look, it’s my experience in life that, when there’s a secret, it usually leads to other secrets.

Victoria: Oh, come on, nicholas. Ashland just revealed something so private and personal today, and that’s still not enough for you.

Nick: No, it’s not.

Victoria: In fact, it’s probably made you more suspicious. You know what, nicholas? I have enough of a headache worrying about ashland tracking down billy and persuading him to back off.

Nick: Well, I didn’t come here to upset you.

Victoria: Good! That’s great. So if you really mean that, you will turn around and walk out, and we can pretend like this conversation never happened.

Billy: Your reluctance to come totally clean leads me to one conclusion — you’re hiding something. Something that could hurt victoria and, most importantly, my children.

Ashland: Whoa, whoa, whoa, there’s no logical reason for you to think that, not a shred of evidence to support your theory.

Billy: Call it intuition. I got a gut feeling. Now, you would’ve thought maybe that morsel of a story would’ve satisfied our curiosity, but it didn’t, not for me. It actually backfired, and it whet my appetite more.

Ashland: You’re wasting your time. All you are going to accomplish is causing more friction. Everyone has secrets they’d prefer stay buried. And how dare you presume to appoint yourself arbiter of what should or shouldn’t be revealed in another person’s life or past.

Billy: No, you’re right. No, whatever you fear most about your past, I guarantee, it’ll come back to bite you.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: Or worse, cause collateral damage to innocent bystanders.

Ashland: Ah. Look at you, painting yourself out to be some sort of savior and me as the villain.

Billy: But you are, aren’t you? I mean, that’s the reputation you’ve cultivated your entire career.

Ashland: I certainly can’t deny that. The truth is, you definitely do not want me for an enemy.


Sharon: Anybody want some pink lemonade?

Adam: No, thanks.

Sharon: Do you mind if I join you? I heard that you got some difficult news today, connor.

Connor: You told her?

Adam: Sharon has helped you deal with issues in the past, and I was hoping that she would be able to help you again.

Sharon: You know, I’d like to try, at least — I mean, if you’re comfortable with it. Maybe I could help you and your dad just talk and, you know, say everything that you want to say and hear each other.

Connor: Can I ask something?

Adam: Of course. Anything.

Connor: Why do you always call her when there’s a problem?

Adam: [ Sighs ] Well, sharon is not only a friend, she is actually trained to deal with situations like this.

Connor: Hmm. I’ll bet there are lots of people trained to do what she does. Right?

Sharon: That’s true.

Connor: But dad chooses you over and over again. I bet mom wouldn’t like this, knowing we’re all together.

Adam: Why would you say that?

Connor: I heard mom talking to grandma about you and sharon. And I want to know what’s going on with the two of you. Is sharon the reason you and mom are breaking up?

Billy: What do you think your fiancée would say about you threatening me like that? Especially after you claim you’ve got nothing else of consequence to hide.

Ashland: I have no doubt that she would continue to stand by my side because victoria understands me and she respects what I’ve endured and what I’ve done to change my life, and she knows why.

Billy: Are you sure about that last part?

Ashland: You know, you might want to be more concerned with your relationship with victoria than with me, unless you want to completely alienate her, because you are well on your way, my friend.

Billy: Well, I’ll muddle my way through somehow. I always do.

Ashland: You know, I can only imagine how thrilled lily must be with you spending so much energy trying to undermine your ex’s engagement.

Billy: You leave lily out of this. This is between me and you.

Ashland: Doesn’t feel good when it hits close to home, huh? So why don’t you listen to me. You continue to dig into my past and invade my privacy — that will ultimately prove to be a futile endeavor. I think it would behoove you to keep both of your eyes open to the realities of the present and let go of the rest.

Billy: Or what? What could you possibly do to stop me?

Ashland: You don’t want to find out.

Nick: I’m not going anywhere because we’re not through. I don’t have an agenda here, and I truly want to believe that ashland doesn’t have any deep, dark secrets that are gonna come back and haunt your relationship.

Victoria: Well, just leave me alone. I can take care of myself.

Nick: Look, with ashland’s diagnosis, you’re gonna have some rough days ahead and you’re gonna want to hang on to as much love as you can for as long as you can, and I get that, and i want that for you.

Victoria: Thank you.

Nick: But something about this isn’t right. And I’m your brother, and that means I get to worry about you because that’s my job.

Victoria: I know, nicholas. I know that. I know this is all coming from a very good place.

Nick: It is, and for billy, too. I know that’s hard to believe ’cause he gets all loud and aggressive, but I know he cares about you. So with me and billy and mom and dad, we just want you to be treated the way you’re supposed to be treated by this man that you’re planning to marry. I hope you know that.

Victoria: Of course I do.

Nick: Now, mom and dad, they may have heard everything they need to hear from ashland to set their minds at ease, but I’m just not there. I do not understand why ashland hasn’t revealed everything about his past. I mean, especially to you, and if you’re being honest with yourself, you’d ask the same questions. “What is it ashland’s not telling me and why?” Vick, come on, it’s me. Talk to me. Like many people with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis

Victoria: Alright. Maybe I have caught myself wondering if I should know more about ashland’s past.

[ Sighs ] If maybe there’s another shoe that’s gonna drop.

Nick: That’s not surprising after everything you’ve heard.

Victoria: I just hate feeling this way. I mean, why should it matter what happened decades ago? It doesn’t matter to me who ashland was. I fell in love with who he is. And, nick, I know him, in a way that none of you do. I know the man behind the name.

Nick: But you can’t be sure about that.

Victoria: Well, one thing that I can be sure of beyond a shadow of a doubt is that i blame all of you, especially billy, for inserting yourselves into my relationship and causing all of this doubt and distrust.

Nick: Alright, look, this isn’t anyone else’s fault, alright? You’re smart and you are strong willed, and nobody’s gonna influence your thinking. If you have doubts about this, it’s because you too must feel like there’s more to the story than locke’s admitting.

Victoria: You’re right. I just — I fought it because it felt like such a betrayal to the love that ashland and I share, but I do have some questions. I have so many questions.

Ashland: Could I get a sparkling water when you have a chance? Thank you.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Nate.

Nate: Hey. Don’t mean to overstep, but is everything okay?

Ashland: Oh, I’m fine. It’s just been a long and trying day. I had to talk about some things from my past with victoria’s family in one of those “full disclosure from the groom” kind of things. Old memories can be painful.

Nate: Sorry you had to go through that.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ] In-laws. What are you gonna do?

Nate: I hear you. Well, I maybe have some news that’ll lift your spirits a bit.

Ashland: Oh?

Nate: I’ve been thinking about your request that I be your best man. And I’d be honored to accept.

Ashland: The honor is all mine. Thank you.

Adam: What happened between me and your mom is complicated. And I’m not gonna get into all the details, but I will answer your question honestly because i think you deserve that and i think that you are old enough to understand.

Connor: Okay, so tell me about you and sharon.

Adam: Sharon and I did have a romantic relationship years ago, but now we are just friends, and there have been times that your mother has struggled with that. But sharon is not the reason that your mom and I are not together anymore.

Connor: I don’t believe you. If that was true, why was mom talking about you two? It’s because you hurt her, didn’t you? She had a stroke and she needed you, but you weren’t there the way you should’ve been. Because of you, sharon.

Adam: Okay, alright. Connor, let’s just take a breath, okay?

Connor: No, you broke mom’s heart, both of you.

Adam: Connor, sto– connor, we’re not done here.

Connor: I want to be by myself. Just leave me alone.

Adam: Alright, I will give you a few minutes to cool down, but we are not done talking.

Sharon: I’m sorry.

Adam: Connor! Connor, where are you going? Connor!

If you have postmenopausal

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Connor: [ Panting ]

Sally: Has anyone ever told you that you look like adam newman? I recognize you from a picture from adam’s office. Is there any chance your name is connor newman? I’m sally spectra. I work with your dad at newman media.

Connor: Oh, yeah. I’ve heard him mention your name.

Sally: You out here all alone? Does your dad know? Okay. Won’t push. Do you mind if I take a break from my run and sit here for a while?

Nick: You have questions about ashland. Let’s start there.

Victoria: You know, nicholas, I’m probably just getting cold feet.

Nick: Did you feel that way before the merger of newman and locke?

Victoria: No, no, because we had done our due diligence.

Nick: Which is something you can’t do with the man himself because he keeps everything under wraps.

Victoria: Nicholas, look, i really do appreciate your concern, but —

Nick: Vick, come on, let me help you.

Victoria: This conversation is over, and I would really appreciate it if you just kept this between us. I don’t want you repeating or acting on anything I told you. Promise me.

Ashland: Nick, I assume you’re here to follow up with victoria about what I told you about my history.

Nick: I had more questions for her.

Ashland: Alright, well, I’m gonna give you a little warning, like I gave billy. My past is nobody’s business but my own. Stay out of my life, okay? I shared what I did today with everyone to put an end to this crap.

Nick: I think you should calm down.

Victoria: Look, ashland has every right to defend himself. He shouldn’t have been put in this position in the first place. I mean, we’re gonna be family.

Nick: That’s what family does. We check on each other. I came over here ’cause I wanted to talk to you. I didn’t hurl any accusations. I didn’t make any demands. I was calm, unlike ashland. In fact, the person in this room who I think seems the most concerned about his past is ashland.

Billy: [ Sighs ] Nothing. Another dead end, which, to me, is very suspicious. It’s almost as if ashland didn’t exist until he met the woman that later became his mentor.

Lily: And once again, there could be a reason for that.

Billy: I really don’t see how it’s possible for anyone in this day and age to basically have no record of the first 20 years of their life, unless they are deliberately hiding it. Or maybe he’s destroyed those records.

Lily: Right, another hypothesis with nothing to back it up.

Billy: Yeah. Believe me. It’s frustrating as hell.

Lily: You’re not the only one here who is frustrated. You need to look at why this matters so much to you. Who cares if ashland is hiding where he came from?

Billy: Who cares? If that’s true, the man is a lie. Everything he’s done in his life is a lie, his whole entire empire. That is a big story, a story that people want to hear. Most importantly, victoria deserves to know that. I don’t need any more motivation than that. I’m not out to embarrass locke. I’m not out to cause him pain. I’m simply looking for the truth. And if it’s not news-worthy, then we don’t run it.

Lily: Which brings me to my next issue. I don’t think that your interest in this story is professional.

Billy: Okay, I see where you’re going, and I don’t like it.

Lily: If anyone but victoria were with ashland, would you care this much? How’d it go with ashland?

Billy: Well, I guess you could say it was an eye-opening encounter.

Lily: Details.

Billy: I think he came here to shut me down. And I think he knows that’s not gonna happen. The way he was acting gave me all new clarity.

Lily: Clarity about what?

Billy: He’s terrified that this is just the beginning, that whatever he’s hiding is about to be exposed.

Lily: Well, it’s hard to imagine a man like locke terrified of anything.

Billy: He threatened me.

Lily: Really?

Billy: Not directly, but his intention was clear, which means he’s desperate. Which means I’m onto something. This is the sound of an asthma attack…

Ashland: I’m so sorry that i stormed in like that and attacked your brother. He didn’t deserve that, and you certainly deserved better from me.

Victoria: I assume that you were on edge after your talk with billy. I warned you it wouldn’t go well.

Ashland: He did everything you predicted he would.

Victoria: Ashland.

Ashland: Believe me, I got my point across, too.

Lily: Billy, this is serious.

Billy: Yeah, I’ll be fine.

Lily: How do you know that? You don’t even know who locke really is.

Billy: I’m not afraid of him.

Lily: Well, maybe you should be.

Billy: The only people I’m worried about in all of this are victoria and my kids. But it is very clear to me that he is still hiding something. You still think it’s a mistake to keep investigating him?

Lily: Look, at this point, i can’t discount your suspicions, okay? Clearly, this goes beyond locke trying to keep his life private or not wanting to relive some past trauma. I understand why you want to continue the investigation, so I’m not going to ask you to stop.

Billy: But you want me to.

Nick: Hey, dad.

Victor: Hey, my boy. What brings you back here?

Nick: I wanted to ask you something.

Victor: Alright, go ahead.

Nick: When you said you heard enough from locke and that you were cool with his relationship with victoria, did you mean that or was it all for show?

Sharon: Connor looks good. He looks relaxed.

Adam: Yeah.

Sharon: Listen, I — I don’t think it’s best that I approach him, given his current mind-set.

Adam: Yeah, you’re probably right. Um…but thank you for all the help, sharon.

Sharon: Go talk to your son.

Adam: Connor, there you are. I see you met sally.

Connor: Yeah.

Adam: Thank you for hanging out with him.

Sally: He’s good company. He was telling me all about lacrosse. I learned a lot.

Adam: Yeah, he’s becoming a real expert on the sport.

Sally: I was just getting around to asking connor what was bugging him. Seems like something’s on his mind.

Adam: Well, sometimes bad news is hard to hear.

Sally: I get it. Sometimes you just want to blame the person who gave you the bad news when it’s not their fault at all.

Connor: Did that happen to you?

Sally: Can you keep a secret? This one time, I went to this really fancy party. I had this incredible dress. My hair looking flawless. My point is, I made somebody so mad at me that they dumped a whole bucket of ice on my head.

Connor: Really?

Sally: Yes, I was drenched in front of everyone.

Connor: You were?

Sally: Completely. My point is, I survived. And you will, too.

[ “The addams family” theme playing ]

Adam: Connor, you gave me a scare. You can’t ever do that again.

Connor: Sorry.

Adam: Look, I know this is hard for you, but we’re gonna work it all out.

Connor: I want to go home and call mom.

Adam: Okay. Okay, let’s do that. Just give me a second to talk to sally first, alright? Thank you for letting me know where he was and staying with him.

Sally: Yeah, no problem. He’s a cool kid. Look, I know this is none of my business, so I won’t bug you with questions.

Adam: Well, thank you.

Sally: But…if there’s anything I can do to help, I’m around.

Adam: Well, I appreciate that, but it’s a private family matter.

Sally: Say no more. See you back at the office.

Victor: To be frank with you, I feel that ashland locke is the kind of man who carries more than his share of pain, you know? As I told your mom, I almost feel kind of sorry for the guy.

Nick: But you don’t think he told us the whole truth, right?

Victor: No, of course not. But does that mean that I’m gonna unearth everything about his past? No.

Nick: Why does he get a pass?

Victor: Well, son, I’m partly moved to support the relationship with your sister is because I think he loves her. And I think it’s reciprocal.

Nick: Well, I’m not questioning his feelings for victoria. I’m questioning the holes in his origin story and how it affects her.

Victor: Have you spoken with her?

Nick: Yeah, I went by her place, and, you know, talked to her, just to kind of see how she took the news. She didn’t come out and say it, but I know she’s not as okay with the situation as she’s making it seem. Then ashland shows up and sees me there. He didn’t like that.

Victor: Really?

Nick: I don’t know why he’s got to keep his birth name a secret, but whatever the reason is, it’s got to be huge for him to want to make the man he once was disappear.

Victor: You just can’t let it go, can you?

Nick: I will never trust locke, not until I know the truth.

Ashland: I don’t want to spend time talking about billy or nick or anyone. I only want to think about you. And after this interminable day, how are you doing?

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Victoria: Ashland?

Ashland: Oh, it’s a text from nate. He’s agreed to be my best man.

Victoria: Oh, that’s wonderful.

Ashland: It’s nice to have good news for a change.

Lily: Billy, look, I am in this with you, okay? But just like you’re worried about victoria and the kids, I’m worried about you.

Billy: I can handle him.

Lily: Are you forgetting the stories about how locke has retaliated against people over the years? Look what happened with jabot when he found out that kyle had an affair with tara. I mean, he could’ve brought that company to its knees.

Billy: Lily, that is his true character, which means we have to keep investigating him.

Lily: Okay, we don’t know how he’s going to retaliate against you by you trying to dig up a past that he’s trying to keep buried. He could take this more personally than tara cheating on him. Who knows how he’ll respond when he’s been crossed?

Billy: I have a feeling we’re gonna find out.

Hmm. Are you sure about this? Wait. No, no. I don’t — I don’t mean the wedding. I’ve rarely seen you so certain about anything. No, I’m referring to the… other matter. I’m sure. Then let fate take its course.

[ Sighs ] You look so handsome. Well… the bride is a very lucky woman. I think — I think I’m the lucky one. Oh, we disagree. That’s good. I mean, what’s a quartermaine wedding without a little conflict? That is true. That is true. So, you nervous?

[ Chuckles ] Who am I talking to? Of course you’re not nervous. I’m glad you’re here. You’re my son. Where else would I be? Oh.

[ Door opens ] Oh, you’re dazzling. Carly: [ Laughs ] Jason won’t know what hit him. You’re gonna take his breath away. Not that you will be able to tell. Oh, yes, I will.

[ Laughs ] Oh, that’s true. If anyone can read what jason’s feeling, it’s you. He can read me, too. So, no bridal jitters? No second thoughts? Nope. Because I happen to know you disappeared for a couple of hours this morning. I thought you might have a case of cold feet. No. I was feeling nostalgic. You know, I was remembering how jason and i first met and everything we’ve been through. Jason tracked me down, and we had a long talk. Oh, well, good. You can actually get jason to talk. Yes. If that’s not true love, I don’t know what is. Oh, true.

[ Laughs ] Well, I was late for the makeup artist, but josslyn helped me pull everything together. So how did I get such an amazing daughter? Circle of life. One day, they come into town, hell bent on destroying you, and then all of a sudden, you blink, and they don’t need you anymore. That’s not true. I’m always gonna need you. Oh. Josslyn: Alright. Well, maxie asked to deliver these, but I made her let me.

[ Laughs ] Are you ready? Okay. What do you think?

[ Sighs ] You are one beautiful bride. What grandma said.

[ Chuckles ] Hey! Maybe it’s time for a digital detox. Well, I was just waiting for you. Josslyn told me that your mom was in an accident. Is she okay? What happened? Thankfully, yes. I don’t want to get into it now, but let’s just say it’s been quite a day. Well, I’m happy to hear that she’s alright. Well, I’m also happy that you’re here. Joss has been so busy with her maid-of-honor duties, I’ve been at major risk of boredom. And now that I’m here? Well, it’s time to have some fun! Or we can be bored together. Sounds like a plan. Yeah. Stop shooting austin the evil eye. How else am I supposed to put a curse on him? Don’t you think a curse is a little extreme? The man is implying that there’s something wrong with my child. Who the hell does he think he is? A doctor? Okay, I need to go check on the bride. Can I trust you to be on your own for 10 minutes? I hope so, but realistically, there’s probably one or two people left in port charles that I have not yet unsettled. Hmm. What is olivia miffed at you about, anyway? She usually stays out of elq business. How do you know that? Because olivia often says, “elq? None of my business!” Yeah, that’s probably a pretty good clue. Olivia’s not upset at austin the quartermaine. She’s upset at austin the doctor. Oh, so this has to do with whatever you and ned were talking about after you found leo. Here’s what I’ll say — I can hardly blame olivia for being defensive. She just cares about her kid. Yeah, of course she does. So do I. Well, put your feet up, and I’ll bring you a slice of cake. Alright. You and the baby take it easy. I’ll see you soon. Bye. Vincent, you remember my son, brando, don’t you? Of course. A pleasure to see you again, brando. Mr. Novak. Wasn’t it kind of mr. Novak to bring me as a guest to my dear departed cousin’s widow’s wedding? Oh, my lord. What would sonny make of his wife moving on so soon after meeting his maker?

[ Nina coughing ] Nina, stop! I am not gonna let you go back in there. It’s too dangerous. Mike is still in there! We have to help him! Mike! Listen to him, nina! Listen to him! Stop! Stop! Mike! Stop! Please! Mike! Mike!

[ Wood creaking ]

[ Coughs ]

I’m so happy for you and carly. Yeah, we’re happy, too. Are you? Good? Good. I’m glad to hear it. When carly first approached me about marrying you, she seemed full of substantial misgivings. Yeah, she was afraid our marriage would ruin our friendship. It’s a little deeper than that. She was afraid that marrying you would be the first step toward her losing you, and I told her that was patently absurd. You did? Well, of course. With all the stunts that carly has pulled, all the plans that have gone wrong, all the messes that you have gotten her out of… if she hasn’t lost you by now, she never will. Oh, I’m sure mr. Novak has gotten to know sonny rather well over the years. Isn’t that right, sir? As well as one can know a respected colleague. Certainly well enough to know what was most important to sonny. The late mr. Corinthos always said there was nothing more important than family. Mm-hmm. And then wouldn’t you agree, mr. Novak, that he would want the two people he was closest to to find happiness with each other? Your son makes an excellent point. My boy is so loyal. Sonny valued that. I couldn’t place you when I saw you earlier, brando, with your lovely lady at the metro court, and then it occurred to me — cyrus renault’s driver. Isn’t that right? That is right, sir. I heard what renault did to you and your enchanting mother. An unscrupulous man. No honor. Well, then, you should also remember, mr. Novak, that if it hadn’t been for carly, cyrus would have killed both me and my enchanting mother. Don’t give carly all the credit. Jason deserves his share, as well. Jason? Renault was still trying to force carly to hand you over when jason came back at the risk of his own freedom. If he hadn’t had shot renault when he did, who knows what would have happened? True. Cyrus was a difficult man, as I’m sure you know. By the way, brando, if you’re looking for work, the novak organization appreciates dedicated men. That’s very generous, vincent. Well, considering we both barely escaped cyrus renault with our lives, I think it best if my dear mother and i steer clear of any association with my former line of work. I hope you understand, mr. Novak. Olivia: [ Sighs ] I’m just saying you went from zero to 60 with austin. And with good reason. Let us not forget that this guy was willing to take advantage of poor, sweet, innocent chase to his own ends. I mean, chase was practically dead. He could barely walk. His heart was broken into a million little pieces. Dr. Nice guy over here, he manipulates him into using his position as a guest in our home to dig through edward’s papers. That’s true. I know. But this isn’t about elq. And what if this little game that he’s playing with leo is — is just about jockeying for position in elq, huh? T-trying to ingratiate himself. Why would I take it on faith that this guy of all people does not have a hidden agenda? You shouldn’t, but you should also leave room for the possibility that he may be on to something. He’s not the only doctor in the sea. No, he’s not. But leo has a connection with him, and that should count for something.

[ Sighs ] Wow. That is quite a dress. Yeah, well, I don’t think anybody’s going to be looking at me. All eyes will be on the bride. Well, I’m not too sure about that because whenever you walk into a room, I find it almost impossible to look at anyone else. It’s almost showtime. Shouldn’t you be getting ready? Uh, what’s there to prepare? I mean, I just stand next to jason and he does all the work. Besides, after months of having to steal time with you, I don’t want to be rushed. Well, if I have my way, we have a lifetime ahead of us. Michael… do — do you really want to talk right now? I just — I want to make sure that you’re okay. About? I know that you’re happy for your mom, but you’ve got to be thinking of your father right now.

[ Chuckles ] Wow. You really do know me inside out, don’t you? I’ve been paying attention. Yeah, yeah. My dad has been on my mind a lot. But right now, I don’t — I don’t feel sad. I… actually, I… I don’t know. I feel like he’s with us. Nina: Go! We need to move you away from this area and get you to the clinic. No, I’m not going until I know mike is safe. I’m a nurse at the clinic. I’ll keep an eye on —

[ Coughs ] I’ll keep an eye on her. Ma’am, you don’t sound too good. Okay, we will move, but we want to stay close until we know our friend is safe. Fine. Fine. Just please follow me. Come on, let’s go. Let’s go. Let’s go.

[ Coughing ] I know you. Thank you… for loving me and always standing beside me. Always. And forever.

[ Footsteps approach ] Maxie: Okay. Josslyn, where’s the bouquet? I trusted you with it. You better not have lost it. Okay, wait, it’s right here. Oh, okay, good. Oh, the bride is a vision, the groom is dashing, and the chapel is full of love. Let’s get this show on the road. Really blew that. Ma, I told you I’m only pursuing legitimate business ventures now.

[ Scoffs ] You call stripping a legit business venture? I call that a paying job. Well, there are jobs that pay better. Okay, ma, stop. Look. First, you send carly and jason to try and hire me, and now novak? You of all people know what that world is like. Or do I need to remind you of the bullet wound you have to show for it? I’m just trying to set you up for success. You claim you want to move in with sasha and support her and your child? This is your chance. Vincent is clearly interested, and he’s a man with influence. I promised sasha that I would stay away from novak’s kind of influence.

[ Sighs ] Well, where is sasha, by the way? Her ob appointment didn’t go as smoothly as we hoped. Her blood pressure was a little elevated, so the doctor decided to place her on bed rest.

[ Gasps ] Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. Is the baby alright? Yeah, sasha and the baby are both fine. It’s just a precautionary measure to protect them both. Well, if there’s anything I can do… actually, there is. If you really are concerned about sasha’s blood pressure, then stop trying to get me a job in organized crime.

[ Sighs ] Buscema: Is it set? So there’s been no deviation from the plan? Let’s just say it will be a wedding to remember. Alright, let’s see if I’ve got this straight. The rather heavyset gentlemen — that’s vincent novak. The other gentleman is charles buscema. The very elegant woman is ms. Wu. I believe so. You believe so? You have hacked into every device they own, downloaded all their secrets. I can neither confirm nor deny. Right. Well, now that we’ve established a plausible level of deniability, let’s just you and I sit back and watch the two people I never thought would get married. I have to agree. I was surprised when I first heard of jason and carly wedding, but now, it seems inevitable. Oh. Don’t count your chickens. Looks like the groom’s mother is going to make one last attempt to talk him out of it.

[ Chuckles ] I noticed your lawyer is here. I wonder if she brought along a prenup for you two to sign. Oh, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I should never have asked that. Look, I know it’s always gonna be not easy for you and carly, but she said you did show up and — and offer us your blessing, and that meant a lot to her. I would do anything for you, and you and carly seem genuinely happy. We are. And I noticed you’re also very magnanimous. You invited your brand-new cousin. Actually, I didn’T. You clean up nice. Dr. Quartermaine. Epiphany, good to see you. You know, carly is the most obstinate, high-maintenance woman that I’ve ever known. But the two of you together — it works. You deserve happiness, especially you, jason. You were always kind to my son, and you always had my back. You’ve always been good to me. Even when I shouldn’t have been. I’m not referring to anything specific here. Oh, I’m not listening. Mm-hmm. I’ll always have your back. And I know you’ll always shoot straight with me. Always. Good luck. With that bride of yours, you’re gonna need it.

[ Laughs ] Mr. Novak. Mr. Morgan. I heard there was another dustup with my nephew joey. Yeah, your nephew crashed my bachelor party. That boy is out of control, which is why I got him a one-way ticket to gdansk. I offer my sincere regrets if any offense was taken. That almost sounded like an apology.

[ Chuckles ] It almost was. Well, these things have a way of working themselves out. You can be sure of that. Maxie: Excuse me. Hi, everyone. If we could please be seated, the ceremony is about to begin.

[ Pachelbel’s “canon in ‘d’ major” plays ]

[ Wagner’s “bridal chorus” plays ]

[ Coughing ] Hey, you should let the paramedics check you out. What the hell happened in there? Who tied you up?

[ Coughing ] I’m told by my team there’s at least one person trapped inside. Yes, he’s in there! He pushed me out of the way when the ceiling collapsed, but he’s pinned under one of the beams! Other than the front two windows, what other entry points does the building have?

[ Coughing ] There’s a delivery entrance. Uh, y-you go and you turn left, that’ll get you to the barroom. It’s a little smoky in there, but it was clear enough when I got her out. Go! Any idea how the fire started? It was [Clears throat] Deliberately. An investigator will follow up. What’s the name of your friend? His name is… sonny, but he answers to “mike.” Please, you gotta help me. Please…come back.

[ Wagner’s “bridal chorus” plays ] Wait! Who are you? Come back!

Celebrate the wedding of caroline, known to her beloved as carly, and jason. The bride and groom are longtime friends, so rather than bearing witness to a new love, we gather here to affirm the latest chapter in their lives together. We will open with a reading from carly’s daughter, miss josslyn jacks.

[ Clears throat ] “Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter to the other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other. Now there is no more loneliness, for each of you will be companions of the other. Now you are two bodies, but there is only one life before you. Go now to your dwelling place to enter into the days of your togetherness, and may your days be good and long upon the earth.”

[ Groans, sighs ] Mike: On your feet.

[ Grunting ] Who are you?

[ Laughs ] I think you already know, son. Yeah, I remember you. Yeah, of course you do. Who could forget a face like this?

[ Chuckles ] You helped me when I washed up… uh-huh. …And you gave me your jacket. Uh-huh. Good, good. That’s a good first step. So what — what else do you recall? It seemed like time stopped. Seemed? Well, it did. I mean — my watch. Yeah, yeah, I tell you, did you ever manage to get that, uh, working again? Yeah, I did. But I let the watch go. Uh-huh. Well, you let go of a lot. Yeah. What would lenny say about leaving loved ones behind? You know lenny? No, never met him. I don’t understand. You were in a bad way. I made sure you got to somewhere where I knew you’d be safe — to a brother in arms. I owe you a lot, you and lenny. You helped me survive and… come to nixon falls. Lenny was the reason — one of the reasons… …why I settled down here. Yeah, and t-that — and that’s beautiful.

[ Clears throat ] But it’s time to go home now. My team and I are doing everything we can to rescue your friend, but I’m sorry to say, the building’s likely a total loss.

[ Sobs ] We’ll keep you posted.

[ Indistinct conversations ] I am so sorry. This is my fault. It’s — it’s my fault. If I hadn’t lied to everybody, the tan-o wouldn’t be up in smoke and mike wouldn’t be inside. It hurts to lose the tan-o, but it’s brick and mortar. As for the lies, that discussion can wait. What matters is saving a man we both care about. Officer: Who owns the property? I do. The fire captain informed me that the fire was started intentionally. Can you tell me who may have wanted to torch the place? I can tell you exactly who set the fire. His name is peter august, and he is a wanted man.

[ Coughs ] The man showed up a couple days ago, calling himself peter sinclair. Peter august did this? When maxie came to visit me, peter followed her here, and then when he confronted me about where maxie was keeping the baby, he ran into sonny, and — and then peter used that information to blackmail me into helping him. So you knew that peter was out there stalking maxie, searching for their baby, and you didn’t tell anyone? For how long, nina? How long did you allow peter to operate unchecked? It wasn’t like that. You could have died! Phyllis, too! And all to keep sonny’s identity a secret? No, see, peter was threatening to kidnap james, and you know as well as I do that, as far as peter’s concerned, maxie’s other children are expendable. Yeah, all the more reason you should’ve let go of sonny! I was gonna do that exact thing, but I had another out — at least I thought I did. Who? Valentin? No. I sent peter off on a false lead. Aunt liesl was supposed to ambush him, get rid of him. You’re joking. You conspired with obrecht? Well, I didn’t ask her for details. I just knew that when she got done with peter, he would never hurt anyone ever again. Yeah, but how’d that work out? Yeah, it worked out great, thank you, the fire and the almost dying! I’m really proud of what I’ve accomplished, jax. Thanks for pointing that out. It really helps.

[ Police radio chatter ] Peter, he alluded to the fact that something happened to aunt liesl. Do you know anything about that, jax?

[ Sobbing ] Because… if I lose one more person that I love because of my actions… …I won’t be able to forgive myself. I now invite the bride and groom to share their vows with one another. Carly, um… we, uh — we know each other. We accept each other. We trust each other. There’s nobody I’d rather build a life and a future with. So this — your hand in mine — …starts the rest of our lives. Together. Nixon falls is my home. Uh-huh. The tan-o, my friends, nina. I’m happy here. I got everything I need. Yeah, I-I — I-I know something about, uh, you know, embracing life and love… yeah. …You know, after the slate’s been wiped clean. You know, I found that it’s possible t-t-to make new memories, you know, and — and, uh, find happiness, you know, [Laughing] Without all that baggage from the past. See, this guy gets it. First time I don’t have to justify my decisions to anyone, right? But another thing I’ve learned — you can’t turn away from your past, you know, your past, who you are. Not really. It’s working for me. You can’t turn away from who you are, and the past will always come to find you. And what if I don’t want to be found? I know, son. You like your life in — in nixon falls. Damn straight I do. Yeah. And you love being mike. Yeah. But there’s only one problem with that. Mike is dead.

obviously, I made terrible mistakes, but I’ve had my reasons, and I’m doing my damnedest to fix them now. Well, I just hope it’s not too late, because peter is still out there and that puts everyone we care about — pretty much everyone we know — in danger. Assigning blame, jax, doesn’t help anyone. Well, you’re right. Only one thing will work — getting the word out. Excuse me.

[ Coughs ]

[ Police radio chatter ] Phyllis. I know waiting for m– sonny, it’s — it’s torturous. Do you need anything? Do you want me to call a paramedic for you? It’s not me I’m worried about. Listen to yourself. Even now, you can’t decide what you want to call him. W-w-when… if — when he comes out, I am gonna tell him the truth. And if he doesn’t make it? No, I can’t think about that! You have to. Nina, if sonny dies in there, which man will you mourn? We were able to breach the building. What? D-did you find him? Unfortunately, the hallway was completely engulfed. There’s no way to reach the barroom. Exactly what does that mean? I don’t know why you’re pushing me like this. I — I’m — I’m — look, my life is good here. I’m fine.

[ Chuckles ] You can’t be fine until you know your past — you know who you are — and embrace it. Okay, and then once you — once you know “the facts,” you can move forward in any direction you choose, but you need to know. Close your eyes. Do you trust me? Goodbye, detective.

Right now, all I can think about

is how wrong it is

that you’re gone.

No more running, julian.

It ends right now.

[ Gunshot ] What the hell was that?

[ Chuckles ] Your past. Your life. And I’m supposed to embrace that guy, whoever I was — so much hurt, so much death because of me? You were also generous, you know, and — and — and — and loyal, and — and — at times, even heroic. I didn’t see a hero.

[ Laughs ] Well, uh… you will. Despite your flaws and your sins, you were — you were pretty damn proud of who you were. There’s no way I should have been. Yes. Yeah, you — you made some mistakes. Uh, no, I think they’re called crimes. I killed people. You did what you did to protect your family. Well, if my family were targeted because of me, then they’re better off without me. That is not for me to say, and it’s not for you to say, either. Those painful memories, they’re just part of your story. Why do you stop looking for the rest of the picture? Because I’ve already seen my past, and I don’t want this part of myself. So you — you think that the man you were has nothing to do with the man you think you are now? Hmm? How did “nixon falls mike” sniff out that con artist? How did he hustle the poker game or handle a gun with ease? The best parts of that mike, they come from who you really are. The protector, the friend come from who you really are. You said you know something about this. Yeah, something. What would you do? Ah, well, given the choice… …I would always choose to remember. I’d fight for everything I was.

[ Angelic music plays ] Jason, my dearest friend. When I met you years ago, playing pool at jake’s, there was an instant connection. And I couldn’t describe it then, and I still can’T. What I do know — this isn’t chance. This is a choice. And I choose to stand by you for the rest of our lives. My determination isn’t as quiet as yours, but it’s just as fierce. I cherish our past. I can’t wait to step into our future together.

The structure’s unsound. The back hallway is impassable. There’s no way to reach the barroom. No, my friend is in there. You have to get him out. I’m sorry, but we’re doing the best we can. There’s no way to reach him. Come on, pick up. Pick up. Carly and jason will light a remembrance candle, honoring those loved ones who cannot be here in body but are with us in spirit.

[ Cellphone vibrating ]

[ Sighs ] You may have found love in nixon falls, but you found it as someone else — as mike. Are you — are you saying the love I have’s not real? No, no, of course it’s real. But there’s real love in the world you chose to — to forget. A love that you had — you have for others, and then the love others have for you. Are you still willing to turn your back on what’s right in front of you? It’s up to you. Okay? Which home do you want to go to? You can die as mike, or you can live as the man you really are. Is she part of that life? The best and the brightest. Father reyes: This candle burns in memory of those we have loved and lost. Sonny: You’re my wife,

you’re my partner,

you’re the mother

of my children,

and I love you

and I always will.

I love you, too.

[ Fire roaring ] Carly!

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Paulina: Oh, if I keep patronizing my daughter’s bakery, I gonna have to buy myself a whole new wardrobe.

[Both laugh]

Abe: Oh, same here. You know, but I, in healthful– healthful solidarity, am gonna take these treats to lani, as I’m meeting her for dinner at the pub. You wanna join us?

Paulina: Oh, no, no. I don’t want to intrude on your father-daughter time.

Abe: Well, she is bringing my adorable grandchildren. I know how much you love them.

Paulina: Oh, those sugar plums, they are my weakness, but no, no, I think I’ll let you spoil them solo tonight because I have an errand to run.

Abe: Can i drop you somewhere?

Paulina: No, no, no, no, no. I don’t want you to be late for your dinner, okay? Now, you enjoy now, okay?

Abe: [Chuckles]

Marlena: I’ll be home very soon. I just got slowed down because johnny came by. Yeah, it was good to see him. Uh-huh. Well, it wasn’t entirely a social visit. He came by with a proposition. Oh. Well, okay. Tell me something: How would you feel about investing in a film?

Johnny: Perfecto. Who knew video calls would make me a better cinematographer?

[Laptop ringing] Hey, bro. How’s it going? Great to see you.

Will: You too, man. You too

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]


Johnny: So how is everything in arizona?

Will: No complaints. I’ve been covering some great stories for the paper. Sonny and his brothers are doing great work at their biotech company.

Johnny: Do you have any time for fun?

Will: Yeah, we took a little road trip at the end of the summer. Had some nice family bonding time, and now ari’s back in school.

Johnny: She like it?

Will: Loves it.

Johnny: That’s great.

Will: So what about you? I was very surprised to hear you moved back to salem.

Johnny: Italy is amazing, but it was time for a change. That said, if I’d known how much pressure my dad was gonna put on me to work at dimera, might’ve thought twice before coming.

Will: Your father is a hard guy to say no to.

Johnny: Yeah, no kidding. But I’ve got plans of my own. I’m gonna make a movie, and that is where you come in.

Abe: Well, hello, sweetheart.

Lani: Aww. Hi, dad.

Abe: Well, look at those angels over there. They are fast asleep. Hey, and grandpa brought you a very special treat.


Lani: Which their dad will have to eat because they don’t have enough teeth yet, dad.

[Both laugh] And I still have some baby weight to lose.

Abe: Oh, nonsense; I’ve never seen you look more beautiful.

Lani: Aren’t you just the sweetest father ever. Where’s paulina? I just assumed that she would be joining us.

Abe: Well, I did invite her, but she had something she needed to do.

Marlena: I do. I do realize it’s a lot of money, and so does johnny. That’s why he understands we have to think about it.

[Chuckles] Yeah. You know, I would like to support him in this, only if you’re comfortable with that.

[Knock at door] Oh, I’ve got somebody here. I will talk to you about it at home. Yeah. Love you too. Bye. Come in. Oh.

Paulina: Special delivery. I thought you’d enjoy a sample of what my daughter and your granddaughter have created.

Marlena: [Laughs] Come to mama.


Chanel: Oh, my god.

Allie: Please tell me we didn’t lose money. Dupree, tell me we at least broke even.

Chanel: We made a profit. A big one. Look.

Allie: Oh, my god. We made that much?

Chanel: On our first day!

[Both giggling]

Limu emu & doug

Tripp: Am I interrupting?

Allie: Tripp, hi.

Tripp: You two seem happy.

Chanel: We were just celebrating that we made a profit on opening day. There’s nothing romantic going on, in case you were worried.

Tripp: Who said I was worried?

Allie: No one. I don’t know why chanel said that, because she knows you and I are together.

Chanel: Yeah, horton’s made that clear. But I’m a little less clear on whether she’s really okay with me dating her brother.

Johnny: Yeah, I’ve been looking around for material, and when I went to talk to grandma marlena earlier, she suggested I should talk to you, and that’s when I remembered that you wrote that script about mom’s life, and that just feels like something I could connect with, you know, ’cause it’s about our family.

Will: [Scoffs] You wanna make “the sami brady story”?

Johnny: Do you still have the script?

Will: Man, I haven’t even thought about that in years. But I save everything to a hard drive, so I probably have it somewhere.

Johnny: Could you send it to me?

Will: Yeah. Sure. But have you asked mom how she feels about this? If she’d be cool with you making a movie about her life?

Johnny: I would if she would return any of my calls.

Will: Mom’s ghosting you?

Johnny: No, she left town after she cheated on my dad with yours. Went off the grid. Apparently, she needs some space.

Will: Yeah, I got that text she sent. I feel bad for her, her marriage ending. I hope she’s okay.

Johnny: Yeah, me too. And I feel for her, but she really has no one to blame but herself.

Will: Sounds like the whole thing was pretty dramatic.

Johnny: Mom’s whole life has been pretty dramatic, and that is why I know her story will make a good movie.

Kayla: Hello. Sorry for the delay. I got an emergency appendectomy.

Julie: Oh, darling, that’s all right. Doug has been working his crossword puzzles. He does them every day. Keep his mind sharp.

Doug: 16 across. Humdinger.

Kayla: I’m sorry? Doug: That’s the clue. Nine letters.

Julie: I haven’t the foggiest.

Kayla: And neither do I.

Doug: Oh, I got it. Don’t worry. Bees’ knees. That’s you, baby.

Julie: [Laughs]

Kayla: Doug, in cases like yours, where you’ve experienced some confusion and some memory issues, we like to start with a very basic test. It’s about 30 questions that will assess your cognitive function. And then when we get the results of that, we will know where you stand, and we can take it from there.

Doug: If I don’t pass this test, does that mean I’m losing my mind?

Lani: Too bad auntie p couldn’t join us.

Abe: Yeah, I know, I know. But yeah, I really enjoy having the one-on-one time with my daughter.

Lani: [Laughs] I’m really sorry eli and I had to run out so quickly last night.

Abe: Don’t apologize. Duty called.

Lani: It was a really good meal, though. And you and auntie p were so cute, cooking together and making little inside jokes.

Abe: Ah. But, you know, thank you for making peace with your aunt.

Lani: She’s family. And I know she is crazy about you, dad, and she’s obsessed with the twins. Oh, and thank you so much for babysitting last night on zero notice.

Abe: No. No thanks are necessary. It was a pleasure. And, you know, I think that your aunt paulina loves these babies more than you realize.

Lani: What do you mean?

Abe: Well, after you left, she referred to herself as jules and carver’s grandma.

Marlena: Oh! Yummy. Thank you for this.

Paulina: Well, after the mess I made almost turning the square into price town, I should have bought every item in that bakery and passed them out for free.

Marlena: Well, you did the right thing, and now it’s all behind you.

Paulina: Well, if only i could fix all my mistakes so easily.

Marlena: What does that mean?

Paulina: Something is weighing on me, marlena. And it’s a very heavy, emotional burden. And I hear that you’re the best when it comes to helping people out with these kinds of issues.

Marlena: I’m glad to listen to you. Have you tried talking to abe about it?

Paulina: Oh, goodness, no. No. He is the last person who can know what I’m about to tell you.

[ “The addams family” theme playing ]

Julie: Of course you’re not losing your mind, darling.

Doug: Well, I might be, if I don’t pass the test.

Kayla: Why don’t you try not to think of it is pass or fail? It’s really just a diagnostic tool. And depending on what we learn, we might order more tests, like an mri, just so we can rule out any physical causes of what you’re going through.

Julie: So we’ll try to be positive.

Kayla: Absolutely. You ready to get started?

Doug: Yes.

Kayla: Okay. So first off, I’m going to tell you five words, and at the end of the session, I’m gonna ask you to repeat them to me, okay?

Doug: Yes. Fire away, kid.

Tripp: I saw johnny earlier. I ran into him, actually. I asked him to fill me in on what happened the other night when you went over to his place.

Allie: Why didn’t you ask me?

Tripp: I did, but you didn’t have time to talk. And I thought it was important to know where we all stood.

Chanel: What did johnny say?

Tripp: He definitely doesn’t appreciate his sister butting in on his relationship with you. Allie: That is not…forget it.

Chanel: No, finish.

Allie: You know how I feel about this whole situation. Now it is up to you if you wanna decide to continue on your… whatever with johnny. Look, I don’t wanna talk about it anymore, okay? I just–I’d really much rather focus on sweet bits being a huge hit.

Tripp: Right, right, which is why I’m here. I wanted to celebrate with both of you. So why don’t we get a table and order some champagne?

Chanel: Sure, and with the bank we just made, I can finally afford to buy the bubbly.

Allie: We’ll split it.

Tripp: No, no, no. Neither one of you is gonna pay, okay? And to avoid any confusion and to be clear, I would like to congratulate my girlfriend and her business partner on being on their way to building a baking dynasty, okay? So the champagne is very definitely on me.

Johnny: Hey, thanks for sending me the script. I can’t wait to read it.

Will: Just keep in mind, I was pretty young when I wrote it.

Johnny: Yeah, it’ll need some tweaking, but let me take a look. We’ll discuss.

Will: I gotta say, it’s impressive. You have a dream, and you’re making it a reality. Allie is too. I heard she just opened a bakery with a friend.

Johnny: Yeah. It’s an… interesting partnership.

Will: Meaning what?

Johnny: Do you ever get the feeling allie might play for your team?

Will: Why would you think that?

Johnny: Never mind. Just send me the script. Can’t wait to read it. I’m sure it’s full of family secrets that no one’s ever told me.

Lani: Why would paulina say she’s the twins’ grandmother when she’s their great aunt?

Abe: Well, you know, I think it’s aspirational. I mean, you know, she said she could see herself being their grandmother at some point down the line, since I’m their grandfather.

Lani: [Scoffs] “At some point down the line.” Dad, you’re confusing me.

Abe: [Chuckles] Well, what I think she meant was that she would be the grandmother if she and I were married.

Paulina: I know you’re close with abe. Maybe this was a mistake.

Marlena: No, if you’re– if you’re looking for some professional advice, anything you tell me would be protected by doctor-patient confidentiality. I couldn’t breathe a word of it legally.

Paulina: Really?

Marlena: Yeah. I could be sued. I could lose my license

Paulina: In that case, I guess I can talk. Abe and I are getting serious, which is wonderful. There’s something I’m feeling very guilty about. And it’s not dating the man that was involved with my sister, if that’s what you’re thinking. No, he–tammy and abe, they were over decades, decades ago. But there are things that I know about the family history that they’re tearing me up inside, and if they ever come out, then they would just tear the whole family apart.

Marlena: [Exhales] That is a heavy burden.

Paulina: And I care about abe a lot. Last night, we said I love you to each other for the first time. I have just regained his trust

Marlena: Wouldn’t that convince you that he would understand?

Paulina: Not about this. Not about this. If abe knew, he would hate me forever.

Marlena: No, I don’t believe that’s true.

Paulina: I do. I know. Because… the truth is, abe is not lani’s father. – Hi sabrina! – Hi jen!

Paulina: You’re shocked, aren’t you?

Marlena: Well, just a little bit, I guess I am. My understanding is that lani came to salem because tamara told her that abe was her father. Why would she lie about a thing like that?

Paulina: Because abraham carver is a kind and decent man. And having him be the father was far better than the truth.

Marlena: So tamara passed lani off as abe’s child because she didn’t want the biological father to think that he had a child. That doesn’t seem like a thing she would do.

Paulina: That isn’t what she did.

Marlena: I don’t understand.

Paulina: There are two secrets. Abe is not lani’s father, and tammy is not her mother.

Marlena: How can that be? Tamara raised her.

Paulina: Yes, she did. But I gave birth to her. I am lani’s mother.

Lani: You and aunt paulina are thinking about getting married? That’s kind of fast, dad.

Abe: Well, it doesn’t mean it’s going to happen tomorrow or even necessarily happen at all. How would you feel if it did?

Lani: I mean, it’s not really up to me.

Abe: Sweetheart, you’re my daughter. Your opinion means a lot to me, and even more so since I know how much she hurt you,

Lani: [Sighs] I will never forget how paulina treated me as a kid. And it’s so– I hate that she betrayed so many people that I care about and that she used you the way that she did

Abe: Well, now you see how important money is to her.

Lani: True. And this time is different. She didn’t disappear. She stuck around, and she tried to make things right.

Abe: And she apologized to both of us.

Lani: And I do think that she was sincere, which is why I forgave her

Abe: Well, forgiving someone and being comfortable around her all the time are two different things

Lani: Dad, I’m comfortable around aunt paulina.

Abe: As your aunt. But what if she becomes your mother?

Allie: Thank you, tripp.

Tripp: Mm-hmm.

Chanel: Mmm. Oh, yeah. This is the good stuff.

Tripp: I would like to propose a toast.

Johnny: Is this a private party, or is there room for one more?

Kayla: Okay. Just a few more questions. What is this?

Doug: That’s your watch.

Kayla: Okay. And what is this?

Doug: That’s a pen. By the way, I do all my crosswords in pen.

Kayla: Oh, you are a very brave man. Okay, repeat after me. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Doug: No ifs, ands, or buts.

Kayla: Okay. Now I want you to–let me give you a piece of paper. I want you to– are you right- or left-handed?

Doug: Right-handed.

Kayla: Okay, I want you to take this paper with your left. All right. I want you to fold it with both hands and then place it right here on the bed. Okay. That’s it. We’re done.

Julie: Oh, he did really well, didn’t he?

Kayla: He did great. Okay, doug, I need you to tell me what the five words are I asked you to remember at the beginning of the session. Can you tell me what they are?

Doug: Well, the five words… five words…. I got ’em. Yeah. I know. I know I know them. Did you know faded, dingy, and rough fabrics

Doug: Five words. Five words. They’re right on the tip of my tongue. Wanna give me a hint?

Kayla: I’m afraid I can’T. But just take your time. Relax.

Doug: Person. Person is the first word.

Kayla: Okay. And the others?

Doug: They’re woman, man, camera, and tv.

Julie: Yes! Yes! He not only got every single word right, he got them in the perfect order. Tell me, does he get extra points for that?

Kayla: Well, it’s not a competition.

Doug: Well, I do get a score, though, right?

Kayla: Oh, yes, you do. And from that, I can tell you that I don’t think there’s anything serious going on with you.

Julie: Oh, thank god. Thank god. I’m so relieved.

Doug: I’m relieved also. But I still don’t understand why I locked julie in the freezer.

Kayla: Well, that i cannot explain.

Doug: Okay. You want me to stick around? Take more tests?

Kayla: I don’t think you need to do that. If you have another incident of any kind, give me a call. Otherwise, you are free to go. All right?

Julie: Thank you.

Kayla: Uh-huh. I’ll see you later.

Doug: Thanks, kayla.

Julie: Everything’s all right, darling. Perfectly, perfectly all right.

Johnny: Since you weren’t responding to my calls or texts, I realized I needed to up my game to get your attention. Congratulations on your grand opening.

Chanel: Oh, thank you, G.

Allie: No flowers for me?

Johnny: Maybe if you’d apologized.

Allie: For what?

Johnny: For trying to come between me and chanel like a psychopath.

Allie: I thought confronting johnny… I thought doing that really was just to protect you. I guess I didn’t realize consciously the real reasons that I was doing it. I don’t know, I felt it when you told me that you met a guy you liked, so maybe…maybe I should have known that I didn’t just go running over there because I was blindsided and worried and upset. Maybe I also did it because I was jealous. Chanel and I talked about that, and she understands that there was history that she was not aware of.

Johnny: Ancient history.

Allie: I was just trying to protect her.

Johnny: She doesn’t need you to do that.

Allie: I get that now. And I get that my brother’s love life is not something I should be involved in. And believe me, I don’t wanna be.

Johnny: Look, I know that I don’t have the best track record when it comes women. I could be a real jerk. But that’s in the past now. I’ve learned from my mistakes. I’m a different person. And I hope you know that. ‘Cause I’d really like to stay.

Chanel: Of course you can stay. My friends and I are celebrating a very exciting, very promising new beginning. And you should be a part of it.

Lani: To be clear, aunt paulina could never take the place of my mother. And if, dad, if you were to marry, she would be my stepmother.

Abe: Oh, of course. Of course. But my point is that if she became my wife, I would want us all to be family.

Lani: We are a family,

Abe: Of course, but a stepmother would have a bigger role in your life than an aunt. I mean, you’d see her all the time. Is that something you could handle, or is that too much to ask?

Lani: You put on a really good show, dad. You’re the mayor. You’re a father. A grandfather. You have great friends. But dad, I know when you come home at night to an empty house, you’re lonely. And ever since you met aunt paulina, there’s been this spring in your step and a smile on your face.

Abe: It’s a wonderful feeling.

Lani: And I want you to feel this as long as you possibly can. Okay? So if you wanna marry aunt paulina, you have my blessing.

Abe: I’m sorry.

Lani: [Laughs]

Abe: Ah! Mm.

Paulina: If my boyfriend had known I was pregnant with his child, he never would’ve let me go.

Marlena: So you escaped?

Paulina: Barely. I had just enough money to get away before he ever found out that I was pregnant. I was young. I was scared. I didn’t know what to do, but mama did. She told me I had to give my baby to tammy.

Marlena: Oh, and you agreed?

Paulina: I didn’t have a choice; none of us did. Ray, he was rich. He was resourceful. He could find me.

Marlena: Were you afraid that he was going to abuse your daughter as he had abused you?

Paulina: Take her, kill her, kill us both.

[Sighs] So when tammy agreed to raise lani as her own, it was a godsend. I knew she’d make a wonderful mother, and then we’d all be safe. But there was a catch.

Marlena: What was the catch?

Paulina: Lani was to be hers and hers alone. Anything else would be too confusing and too dangerous. So I became auntie paulina. I promised to keep my distance, never say a word.

Marlena: That must have been so difficult for you.

Paulina: The hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. The pain of not having her in my life, all those years of longing to tell her, it just– well, it just killed me.

Marlena: How did you handle all that?

Paulina: Well, not well. I wanted a relationship with my child, but it couldn’t be one that I wanted. And any effort I made, it only ended up disappointing her, and it infuriated my mama and tammy. They wanted me to stay as far away from lani. And for a while, I did.

Lani: But then you came to salem.

Paulina: The other day, I almost told lani who I was, but mama warned me how devastating that could be. Finding out that her whole life was a lie.

Marlena: Look, I know that would be difficult to learn. But surely she would understand that you had done it to protect her.

Paulina: But lani, she wouldn’t understand why I have lied for all these years. I mean, I’ve grown older. I’ve got my own money. I have my own resources, and I still, still kept it a secret. If she and abe found out that I did that, they would never, ever forgive me.

Marlena: I’m not sure that’s true. And in my life and in my career, I’ve learned that sometimes things that you think can’t be forgiven do get forgiven. It’s just a–look, think about this: No pressure, but if you decide you wanna tell abe and lani the truth, I will help you facilitate that.

Paulina: No, no. No, marlena, you’ve got to– you’ve got to promise me, promise me that what I have shared with you here today, you’ve gotta keep it– just keep it between us. This is the sound of an asthma attack…

Marlena: Paulina, you don’t have to worry. Everything you say to me is in strict confidence. I just–oh, I can see how much pain you’re in. I wish I could help.

Paulina: Just unburdening myself to you has been a help. Oof. Lord knows I cannot talk to my mother. There is no more judgmental woman on the planet.

Marlena: Well, there is no judgment in this room. You can talk freely here about anything without having any fear and maybe… maybe even find some solutions.

Paulina: God knows I could use a solution.

Marlena: Well, I would suggest that you book some appointments with me or someone else.

Paulina: You mean going to therapy? I’ve never tried it. How long does it take, you know, to be cured?

Marlena: Well, that changes from person to person. There’s no set time on that sort of thing. What’s important is that you show up and you do the work.

Paulina: Hard work is not a problem for me.

Marlena: Okay. Should we set up a schedule? Okay. And maybe one day, you’ll feel comfortable sharing your secret with abe and lani.

Paulina: I don’t know about that, but sitting here sharing this with you, I do– I feel better. Thank you. You’re good. Thank you for listening, marlena.

Marlena: It’s my pleasure. Glad to help.

Paulina: Oh, honey, please. I’m a hugger.

[Both laugh] Thanks so much.

Marlena: Mm-hmm.

Lani: So when are you popping the big question?

[Both laugh]

Abe: I just haven’t given it much thought. But I’m glad that I was able to share my plans with you. And I’m very grateful you gave me your blessing.

Lani: I just want you happy, daddy. That’s all I want

[Both laugh]

Tripp: To the success of sweet bits.

[Allie and chanel giggle]

Johnny: Cheers. You guys really inspire me. You worked hard to make your dream come true. And I’m gonna do the same thing with my film.

Tripp: Did you ever talk to your grandma about investing?

Johnny: I did, yeah. I haven’t heard back yet, but got a good feeling.

Allie: Do you even have a script?

Johnny: I do even have a script, allie, yes. When I went to see grandma marlena earlier, she suggested I talk to will about his hollywood experience. And I remembered that he wrote a screenplay about mom’s life.

Allie: Yes. “The sami brady story.”

Chanel: Hold up. Someone wrote a movie about your mama?

Johnny: Yeah, our brother will did a long time ago. I called him earlier and he said he’d send me the script.

Chanel: Oh, my god. My mother would love to have a movie made about her life.

Allie: Yeah, our mom loves the spotlight too. But what you’re doing feels way too personal.

Johnny: What I’m doing is making a great film.

Allie: You don’t even have the script yet. I mean, how do you know it’s gonna be great?

Johnny: Look, message received: You hate the idea. My dad does too, which makes me love it even more.

Tripp: Kind of strange to think you’d have actors playing people in your family.

Allie: Totally. Besides, I mean, who could do justice to sami brady?

Johnny: What about you?

Julie: Paulina price, what are you doing here? Is everything okay?

Paulina: Oh, I’m fine. I’m perfectly healthy. This is a purely social visit.

Julie: Oh. May I inquire who you were socializing with?

Paulina: Oh, marlena. You know, I know how busy she is, so I delivered some cookies from sweet bits.

Julie: Oh, we were at the opening of the bakery. And oh, everything was so delicious. Especially those donuts. Those girls really got that recipe right.

Doug: Alice’s recipe.

Paulina: Oh.

Julie: Exactly.

Paulina: So what brings you by the hospital?

Julie: Well, doug was taking some tests, and he passed them with flying colors.

Paulina: I’m sure he did. You can tell this silver fox, he takes good care of himself. You are one lucky woman, julie. Enjoy your evening.

[Laughter] Doug williams, did you just grab my ass?

Julie: Doug! Your mission:

Julie: Paulina, I am so terribly sorry.

Paulina: Does your husband– does he make a habit of feeling women’s derrires?

Julie: God, no, he’s never done anything like this before. Ever. But you see, he hasn’t been himself lately. He’s been a little off. I’m mortified.

Paulina: Oh, no. Don’t you worry girlfriend, no. You know what, in a way, it’s sort of a compliment.


Allie: You want me to play mom in your movie?

Chanel: I think your brother’s just trying to get back on your good side.

Johnny: No, I’m serious. I mean, you look a lot like mom when she was young, and I think you’d make a great sami brady.

Tripp: I agree; I mean, you do resemble your mom. And if you need anybody to play my dad, I’m in.

Johnny: Okay.

Allie: Right, because as a med student, you have so much free time on your hands. My schedule is just wide open these days.

Johnny: Oh, we’d find a way to make it work.

Chanel: You should do it, horton.

Tripp: I agree.

Allie: No. No, I’m a baker and a single mom. I’m not an actress.

Johnny: Think about, sis. I can make you a star.

Kayla: You paged me?

Julie: Yeah. I’m afraid doug had another little incident.

Kayla: A memory lapse?

Julie: No. No. It was totally inappropriate behavior. We were standing talking to paulina price, and suddenly he reached out and grabbed her– grabbed her behind.

Kayla: What?

Julie: So I think we better run that mri after all.

Marlena: No, darling, I’m sorry. I was about to leave when a patient showed up and really needed a session, needed to talk. Well, in fact, it was pretty serious, and I just needed to take some time to digest it all.

[Both laugh]

Abe: Well, you know, when the time comes, can you help me pick out an engagement ring?

Lani: Just pick out the biggest ring in the store. The most flashiest that makes a statement. That is what aunt paulina likes.

Paulina: What is it I like?

Abe: Well, jules and carver, of course. You know, I knew when I told you that lani would be bringing the babies to dinner, that you would not be able to stay away.

Paulina: Well, you know I love to dote on my grandniece and grandnephew. But we’re all family no matter how we’re related, right? And tonight, I needed to be with my family.

Abe: Well, to family.

Paulina: Mm-hmm.

Lani: To family. Yeah.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Dramatic music ]

Carter: Eric can’t honestly want you to be with me.

Quinn: He’s not…thinking about it that, carter. He’s thinking about what he thinks I need. And if he thinks this is the only way to give me a life full of passion and desire, then… then he’s willing to do it.

Carter: But are we?

Ridge: Tell me. Tell me what’s going on with you.

Eric: This is a place of business right here. And that’s my personal life. I think it’s been discussed quite enough in this office.

Ridge: Your personal life? What else would it be, dad? We’re family, I’m your son. I’m concerned about you. Yes, it’s personal, of course it is. So, I’m asking you on a personal level. This reunion with quinn… wasn’t all candlelight and fireworks, was it?

Steffy: Oh! What.

Finn: Hm.

Steffy: What was that for?

Finn: It’s the first time we’ve been alone all day.

Steffy: Yeah. You trying to make me forget about your uh… dad joke competition with liam? Wow.

Finn: Nah, that was fun.

Steffy: Yeah, today was fun.

Finn: It was. I love seeing the kids together.

Steffy: I know. Kelly was so proud, showing off her little brother to– to douglas and beth. So cute.

Finn: Well, I think we all have a lot to be proud of today.

Steffy: Mm-hm. This is what hope and I wanted for so long. Just to be a big, blended family. And it didn’t seem possible. But then I met you. What hope said today, about me never been happier… it’s true, I am. It’s because of you.

Finn: The kids are napping. Amelia’s gone. I’m going to take you to the bedroom.

Steffy: I like the sound of that. Steffy: Oh my gosh, we have company. We have com-pa-ny!

Paris: Sorry. I’m sorry.

[ Laughing ]

Steffy: Um…

[ Laughing ]

Eric: You know, I really wish you wouldn’t be so quick to jump on quinn.

Ridge: It’s not what I’m doing. You must know by now I don’t care what happens to quinn. I care what happens to you. And I’m only telling you what I’m seeing. What I’m seeing doesn’t make sense. You wanted her out of your life for very good reason. And now you want her back. And– and no one knows why. No one can talk to you about it. So, something is going on. Am I wrong?

[ Door opening ]

Brooke: Oh, good, you’re both here. These samples just came in and I–uh… you’re in the middle of something.

Ridge: Yeah. I’m trying to convince this guy that I’m concerned about him.

Brooke: We both are, eric.

Eric: Well, I don’t want to be uh–I don’t want to seem ungrateful or unkind, but I would–

Ridge: Here it goes. No, I know what you’re going to say. “You cannot blame quinn for anything, ever.”

Brooke: It’s hard not to. You say that you want a life with her. You say you want her back, and that you’re happy, but you don’t seem happy, eric. In fact, you seem more troubled since you and quinn have reconciled. Why is that?

Quinn: Obviously eric still thinks there’s a connection between us.

Carter: He’s not wrong. But…he doesn’t understand. Quinn, if we do this, if we give into our feelings… it can get very complicated.

[ Sighing ]

[ Door knocking ]

Wyatt: Mom, are you–

Quinn: Hey, sweetheart.

[ Clearing throat ]

Wyatt: Uh…am i interrupting something here?

Carter: Not at all.

Wyatt: Oh, really? So, I should just ignore the fact that you guys literally jumped away from each other?

Frank is a fan of fast.

He’s a fast talker.

Paris: I should have backed up the second I saw you guys. But I’m just no good at sneaking around.

Finn: No, that’s– that’s a good thing. I–I like that in a house guest.

Steffy: Yeah, me, too.

Paris: You guys don’t get to spend much time together, and here I am, interrupting. I’ll go up to my room. I don’t mean to make things awkward, um, but after everything you’ve been through, it’s really great to see you guys like this.

Steffy: Yeah, I agree.

Paris: So that means everything with sheila worked out? You guys don’t have to worry about her anymore?

Ridge: So, everything is good, right? There are no problems? But then answer this, why are you acting this way?

Eric: I’ve asked you time and time again to stop harping on this, to leave it alone. But you won’T. That’s why I’m acting like this. It’s annoying!

Ridge: Ah.

Brooke: Why would you want us to let it go, eric? All we’re doing is expressing our concern.

[ Sighing ]

Brooke: I mean obviously something is wrong. We can see it. Even last night when I talked to you on the phone, I could hear it in your voice.

Ridge: We can see what’s going on, why can’t you? Why can’t you see that we’re here because we love you and we want to support you?

Eric: Quinn and I have been more open to one another recently than we ever have been in our lives together. We’ve been very, very honest with one another.

Ridge: And that’s good. Honesty’s good. You know what else is good? Trust. Companionship.

Brooke: And warmth. And affection.

Ridge: You were talking earlier about challenges that families go through. We’ve had more than most. And when we found our way back to each other, it was magical. It was amazing, we didn’t leave the house for days. We didn’t leave the bedroom and there was things happen that’s– that’S…not important. But I want that for you, dad. And I gotta tell you, this… little reunion with quinn doesn’t seem as joyous to me.

Brooke: You probably wanted things to go back the way they were. But maybe that’s just not possible. And there’s no shame in that. Eric, you’re a man who values honesty. You value integrity. And maybe you just don’t feel that same way now after quinn betrayed you. You know, maybe there’s no love, there’s no passion. It’s gone.

Wyatt: You know, this isn’t the first time I’ve walked in on the two of you.

Quinn: At the office? Where we both work.

Wyatt: It didn’t look like you were exactly crunching numbers here, mom–

Carter: Wyatt, there is nothing going on. If you have to know, we were talking about eric. Your mom’s one hundred percent focused on him, doing whatever it takes to make their marriage last.

Wyatt: Okay, good. I mean you can understand why there’s questions, right? Considering everything that–

Quinn: The only question I’m asking myself is how I can be the best wife to my husband. Look, eric has been very generous with me. He’s willing to give me whatever it takes to make me feel appreciated and– and desired. And– and now I have to make sure that I’m– I’m giving eric everything he needs from me.

If you have postmenopausal


Paris: Um, um–I– I brought up a bad subject.

Steffy: No, no, no, no, it’s–it’s alright. Finn made it clear to sheila that she’s no longer welcome& in his life or hayes’.

Paris: Well, did she accept that? Did she leave?

Finn: We don’t know where she is.

Steffy: We have to keep an eye out. You too, paris. If you hear or see anything, we need to know immediately.

Paris: Absolutely. Uh… I’m–I’m sorry I even brought it up. I know it’s a heavy subject.

Steffy: It’s really important that sheila stays out of our lives. For good this time.

Eric: It’s pretty easy to judge from the outside looking in.

Brooke: Eric, we’re not judging you!

Eric: Yes, you are, brooke. Yes, you are!

Brooke: Please, you don’t have to hide anything from us. Admitting that you made a mistake can be hard. And it can feel like a failure. But it’s not. It’s strong and it’s courageous. But that’s who you are, eric. You’re always trying to do the right thing and putting other people first. But it’s not worth it. It’s not worth sacrificing your own well-being just to honor a commitment.

Eric: This is my marriage. What goes on in my marriage is my business. It’s not yours. Quinn and I know what we’re doing. We’re going to take care of this ourselves. I want this to be the end of it. Excuse me.

[ Door opening and closing ]

Wyatt: Look, I don’t mean to make you defensive.

Carter: You’re concerned about your mom.

Wyatt: I just I know how much my mother loves eric and how great they are together.

Quinn: Okay, I’ve made so many mistakes with eric and I don’t want to make another one, okay? Eric and I are–are… are trying to create a marriage that works for both of us.

Wyatt: Good. I just don’t want you to take that for granted.

Quinn: Believe me, I don’T.

Wyatt: Okay. I’m just saying that it was miraculous… the way he took you back after everything you did to him, giving you another chance. Like, that– that is a very special kind of love.

Quinn: I know, wyatt.

Carter: It’s not if you know eric. The way he reacts to challenges. His first thought is always everyone else. He wants things to be better.

Quinn: Eric is a remarkable man. A man who thinks that a life with me is… worth every sacrifice. He’s willing to do… whatever he thinks I need to feel happy and fulfilled.

Wyatt: And you’re going to give that back to him though, right? I’m just saying. I don’t want you to miss out on this, mom. Whatever eric needs, whatever he asks you to do– just do it. (Susan n) leonard was afraid

Eric: Having a little trouble with this one?

Quinn: Ah, just uh… just a bit distracted. I’ve a lot on my mind.

Eric: I understand.

Quinn: I don’t really think you do. You think you know what I want. But you don’T.

Eric: Remember the day we got married?

[ Scoffing ]

Quinn: How can I forget?

Eric: It was just you and me. You and me and the minister.

Quinn: Yeah, yeah. ‘Cause your family protested and they refused to show up.

Eric: Yeah. They were sure I would call it off. They had no idea how much… I loved you. They had no idea how far I would go to give you what you want. I promised that I would– that I would give you happiness and joy and– and fulfilment in your life. I could still do that. Here.

Quinn: What’s this?

Eric: Sensitive material. It’s–it’s for carter.

Quinn: Carter isn’t here, he went home for the day.

Eric: I know. Take it to him. I’ll see you at home.

[ Sighing ]

Ridge: Dad knows what he wants.

Brooke: Yeah. Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything. I made him feel like he had to defend quinn.

Ridge: I’m sure he felt that way from the moment he met her.

Brooke: I just don’t get it. Eric is so… he’s amazing. He’s generous and thoughtful and giving and…quinn is just the opposite.

Ridge: You’re right, he is thoughtful. So, let’s hope he thought this through.

Quinn: Is that your way of telling me not to worry?

Ridge: Only if you can tell me the same thing.

Brooke: Well, your father is an amazing man. His ability to love is… extraordinary. He’s fearless and boundless. Quinn doesn’t deserve him. No man has ever given her what eric has.

Eric: Look, I told you. My sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be.

[ Sighing ]

Carter: Okay.

Quinn: I love you.

Carter: I love you, too.

Nick: I thought that I would come to the gym and try out that new trainer you hired.

Phyllis: Oh, good, good. Tell me what you think. Although you could show him a thing or two.

Jack: I’m surprised you have to ask. I’m here to apologize.

Victor: Ashland. Sorry to keep you waiting.

Ashland: No problem. Thanks for inviting me. So, what is this about? Board business for newman media?

Victor: I thought you and i should get to know each other a little better, considering we’ll soon be in-laws. It’s not always about business, you know.

Ashland: You know, if i hadn’t heard you say those words myself, I would never believe it.

Victor: Well, maybe we’ll surprise each other today.

Billy: Well, I am glad I ran into you. I have a got a bone to pick.

Victoria: About what?

Billy: I ran into dr. Nate hastings, and he said he got a personal invitation from ashland to your big tuscany wedding. I checked the mail — nothing for me. So, what’s up with that? What did nate do to earn this special consideration?

Victoria: You know, you make me wonder why I put you on the guest list in the first place, since every time you see me, all you do is dig for dirt that you can publish about my fiancé.

Billy: You seem annoyed. Usually you like sparring. We can end this quickly and quite simply, really, by just telling me about ashland’s history. And I will be out of your hair. I promise.

Abby: I think this goes here.

Mariah: Hey, can I help you with that?

Abby: I think I got it. Thanks.

Mariah: Oh, you know what? I think I see what you —

Abby: I said I got it. Thank you. There we go. All set.

[ Sighs ] It’s such a nice day outside, I’m gonna take dominic for a walk through chancellor park.

Mariah: Yeah, that sounds lovely. Uh, have a great time.

Abby: We’ll see you later.

Mariah: Mm-hmm.

Abby: Let’s go, honey. It’s so pretty outside.

[ Door opens ]

Tessa: Hey, mariah.

[ Door closes ] Mariah? Oh, honey. What happened?

Chelsea: [ Laughs ] That’s so funny. I can’t wait to talk to him about it. I’m — I’m just so happy that connor had such a great time at camp.

Adam: I think it’s time that we tell him the truth about where things stand with us.

Chelsea: Now? U-um…aren’t you rushing things?

Adam: He deserves to know what’s going on with his family, chelsea.

Chelsea: But so much is still up in the air.

Adam: With us? Chelsea, come on. We have talked about this already.

Chelsea: I guess I just thought, with time, things would get better.

Rey: Oh, there you are.

Sharon: Hey. Um, this is a surprise.

Rey: Well, I thought I’d stop by during my break and see you. But I was the one who got surprised when the barista said that you had to step out. Been running errands?

Sharon: Uh, yes. And no. It wasn’t exactly an errand. It was just something that i felt I needed to do. I went to see adam.

Additional sponsorship

provided by… doesn’t your family deserve the best?

Adam: Look, chelsea, we have had a long and complicated relationship. But I think that we need to go our separate ways now, apart.

Chelsea: But what about connor? I mean, shouldn’t we at least try again, for his sake?

Adam: I know you, chelsea. I can hear it in your voice that you still think it’s possible. But, honestly, I’m surprised to hear that because it wasn’t that long ago that you wanted me out of your life so bad that you thought sending me to prison was the answer.

Rey: Adam. And you went to see him because…?

Sharon: Well, you know why. We talked about it. He wanted some advice on how to talk to connor about the changes that are happening in his family right now, and you’re the one who urged him to not put that off.

Rey: You’re right. I suggested it thinking, again, there were plenty of other people who could give him guidance besides you.

Sharon: Yes, but…

Rey: I know. I know. It’s just in your nature to — to want to help. And that’s one of the things i love most about you. But I have a question. And it’s the same question i have had from the beginning and still have to this day. Will adam ever be out of our lives? You know, I was hoping to spend a little time with you during my break, but now I have to head back to the station. Otherwise, I’ll be late. I hate leaving this like this.

Sharon: Well, why don’t you stay for a few minutes?

Rey: Why? I’ve said my piece. I don’t think it’s gonna change anything, but, uh… I had to say it. I’ll see you tonight.

Victoria: You know, there are times when you think you’re being so, so charming, and yet you are so far off the mark. It makes me wonder if you even know what the definition is. And take my word for it. It’s not your most endearing trait.

Billy: Well, I’m in the media business. I don’t need to be endearing. It’s not exactly in the job description. But let’s just squash that for now. You still haven’t told me why nate — or how nate — became ashland’s new bff.

Victoria: They’re not bffs. Ashland is giving money to the hospital. They happen to have a few things in common. They’ve hit it off. Oh, I’m sorry if that’s not scandalous and titillating enough for you to feed your readers. But that’s not gonna stop you from digging, is it?

Billy: I am curious about your relationship for a few very good reasons, and our readers are curious about ashland’s past. The question is, why are you not curious?

Victoria: Don’t you dare presume to know what I care about or what I don’T. But by all means, please feel free to assume that I’m really tired of this little fishing expedition of yours. Feeling stressed in your skin?

Phyllis: Oh, listen. You don’t — you don’t have to apologize to me.

Jack: Well, I said a lot of things last night, and I didn’t mean to make you feel uncomfortable.

Phyllis: Oh, you didn’t make me feel uncomfortable.

Jack: Well, you had every right to be. You’re with nick now, and i was —

Phyllis: Being candid. That’s all. Listen, yeah, I’m with nick. You didn’t make any declarations that you were coming after me. You were just telling me what was in your heart. Listen.

[ Sighs heavily ] We’ve known each other a really long time. You don’t have to apologize for simply telling me your truth.

Jack: Okay. Just to be clear, I was apologizing for possibly making you feel uncomfortable, not for the things I said last night. They were true then. They’re just as true now.

Phyllis: Well, I’m glad you got that off your chest.

Nick: Hey, guys.

Phyllis: Hey!

Jack: Hey.

Nick: Am I interrupting?

Phyllis: No. We’re just talking about stuff.

Nick: Well, I have some news that I think both of you are gonna like. I just got a text from summer. She said it is time to make some travel plans for her civil ceremony with kyle.

Jack: I am looking forward to it.

Phyllis: That is amazing. I’m so excited. I’m so excited. All of these weddings in italy. Kyle and summer and then ashland and victoria in tuscany.

Nick: Yeah. I like it. There’s a lot of love in the air.

Mariah: I’m fine.

Tessa: Really? Because you seem pretty upset.

Mariah: Abby and bowie — sorry, dominic — they were going out, and the stroller just — and I — I just wanted to help, and…

[ Sighing ] Mm. Okay. Abby was taking the baby to the park. And it was gonna be his first time seeing it, and I’m sure it was gonna be awesome. And — I don’t know — I just got so sad when I watched them walk out the door.

Tessa: Because?

Mariah: I don’t know.

[ Voice breaking ] I have no idea.

[ Sniffles ] It’s just a feeling that is so…hard to describe. And I — I worry, I guess. And I don’t know why.

Tessa: Well, I mean, after what stitch put you through, it’s only natural. It’s got you looking over your shoulder. You’ve got a lot to put behind you.

Mariah: Yeah. [ Sniffles ] I do. A lot.

[ Sighs heavily ] There’s just this thought that i cannot seem to shake, no matter what I do, and I feel so bad thinking about it while I’m living in abby’s house and… have you — no.

Tessa: What?

Mariah: Abby’s history is the reason why bowie and me were put in jeopardy, you know? Her relationship with stitch. All of it, it — it led to me carrying the baby when she needed a surrogate. And then stitch comes back into town, and he brings chaos and disaster. He still wants abby, and he’s willing to do crazy, terrible things to get her back.

Tessa: Stitch was troubled. But he made his choices. You’re not blaming abby, too, are you?

Mariah: [ Sniffles ] Rinsing the dishes before they go in the dishwasher?

Victor: How’s your treatment going?

Ashland: Thank you for asking. I have to admit, uh, there’s been some rough days, some, uh, difficulties to conquer, but i do believe the treatments are, um, helping me along. The days after the treatments, I’m feeling better, stronger.

Victor: Glad to hear that. Tell me about your early days in business.

Ashland: Well, the question is, where to start?

Victor: Well, how about the beginning? Now, I’ve always been interested in the early careers of successful businessmen, you know?

Billy: Maybe I am fishing a little bit. But it’s not like I’m casting my line blindly, not knowing what I’m about to get. As of right now, I am simply confirming things that I’ve already learned. And I’m trying to fill the holes.

Victoria: Such as?

Billy: Such as the fact that ashland doesn’t even seem like he existed before he met his mentor — camilla rhodes.

Victoria: That is patently ridiculous.

Billy: Mm. Is it really? I mean, we haven’t been able to find a birth certificate on the guy. He talks about in interviews how he lost his parents when he was a teen. We can’t find a death certificate for them, either, at least not under the names that he’s provided. So you tell me if that’s not weird.

Chelsea: Well, it seems like you’ve already made up your mind. I just thought, after everything we’ve been through together, something this important would warrant a longer discussion. I don’t know, adam. I thought maybe we would at least try, for connor’s sake. But, yeah, if this is where we stand, then, yeah, we need to talk to connor.

Adam: Good. I was hoping that you would agree.

Chelsea: But we have to do this the right way, adam. I mean, I’m here. You’re there. You have to at least wait until I come home. We can talk about it together.

Adam: Do you have any idea when you’re coming back?

Chelsea: I — I don’t know. Since we last spoke, anita has taken a turn for the worse. She fell again. She re-injured herself trying to do too much.

[ Sighs ] Coming up with a timeline right now is quite difficult.

Adam: But we have to try, right?

Chelsea: My mom doesn’t have anyone else that can take care of her. She won’t let me hire a nurse to pitch in, much less full time.

Adam: Chelsea, you’re just going to have to insist. It’s just that simple.

Chelsea: Well, adam, my mom is insisting that I take care of her, okay? And I can’t just walk away.

Adam: Even though you know it’s anita just being anita?

Chelsea: What are you saying? What, you think she faked her fall to keep me from leaving?

Adam: I’m saying that I don’t want to wait. It’s not fair to connor. I don’t want to dictate, but it seems like the only solution is for me to deal with this myself.

Chelsea: Okay, can you just hold on a second, please? Stop barreling through this.

[ Stammers ] Then bring him here. We can talk about it together. Please, adam, I have to be a part of the conversation.

Adam: I’m not saying no just yet, but there are problems with coming to minnesota, too. What if we tell him we’re goingthere and then he’s gonna get his hopes up for all of us to be together? He’s gonna be crushed when he realizes what the trip is all about.

Chelsea: You are coming up with any excuse to cut me out of this. You won’t come here, but you won’t wait. I’m stuck, and you are refusing to compromise.

Adam: I’m not trying to be cruel. I’m just trying to do what’s best for our son.

Chelsea: No, you’re just thinking about what’s easiest for you.

Adam: No, I’m no– like many people with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Sharon: Sally! What can I get for you?

Sally: You know, I’m getting kind of bored ordering the same old thing. I feel like something different, surprising, a real pick-me-up. Do you have any suggestions? What is your personal favorite?

Sharon: Oh, I’ve got a lot of faves.

Sally: Well, pick one for me. I love the vibe here. But I must say I was a little surprised when I heard that you were running this place ’cause the first time I heard your name was back when I was an avid reader of restless style. Do you miss working in fashion?

Sharon: Not at all. I, uh, have a degree now, in psychology, actually, a master’s degree. And along with owning and running this place, my life is quite full. I’m very content.

Sally: Well, it seems like you have it all then — great career and a handsome husband.

Sharon: I guess I do. Enjoy your latte.

Sally: Thanks. Mm! Adam. You have to get sharon to make you one these iced lattes. They are delicious.

Adam: Huh. Nobody beats crimson lights. Uh, I think chloe was looking for you at the office.

Sally: Oh. Better get back then. Do you want me to wait for you?

Adam: Oh, no, I’m not, um — I’m not gonna be headed back right away.

Sally: Oh. Too bad. My loss.

Sharon: So…how’s she working out at newman media?

Adam: [ Clears throat ] She’s very enthusiastic.

Sharon: She definitely comes off that way, but she also comes off like, uh…a handful.

Victor: I take it you are familiar with my early days?

Ashland: If you’re asking me whether or not I’ve read your biography, the answer is yes.

Victor: Ah.

Ashland: You grew up without parents in an orphanage, a father who deserted his family and a mother who promised she’d come back for you but never could. You left the orphanage as a teen and changed your name and took charge of your life, laying the groundwork for the empire that you would build. Quite a story.

Victor: Boy, you read it, didn’t you? That’s very nice. Thank you. Did any of it resonate with you?

Ashland: Sure. But of course there are differences. However, like you, I, uh, had to jump-start my life as a teen.

Victor: Uh-huh. So, what was your relationship with your parents like?

Ashland: I was as close to them as any kid could be at that age. They were well-meaning people, but a book about my life would not be as gripping as the biography of the great victor newman.

Victor: [ Chuckles ]

Ashland: The interesting part of my story begins with the accomplishments that made me the man I am today. But that was then, and this is now. Maybe I’m saying this in light of my diagnosis or how victoria has been so key in teaching me how to live in the moment. But I feel the need not to look back, to never look back.

Victor: Hmm. And you don’t think that those early experiences made us who we are today?

Victoria: Billy, this is just such an alarming story. I mean, it’s far too big for chanccomm alone. I’m gonna have to alert the major newspapers and the big networks. I’m gonna have to call the cable-news media. Ashland locke does not have a birth certificate, and you cannot find his parents’ death certificates. Oh, I know. Maybe he’s an alien from mars. I cannot believe that you think any of this is significant.

Billy: I cannot believe that you don’T.

Victoria: We’re talking about documents from years ago. Everything was on paper. I mean, maybe it’s buried in a warehouse somewhere, or maybe it’s simply missing.

Billy: Yeah, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe. That’s what lily said.

Victoria: Well, you know what? I knew she was smart. So I wonder — what is she doing with you?

Billy: That’s funny.

Victoria: Seriously, though, billy, if these hard-to-find records are the best that you have, then you’ve wasted enough of my time, not to mention your own time.

Billy: Look, victoria, I am not looking for reasons to doubt your fiancé. They just keep falling in my lap.

Victoria: Yeah, because you’re seeing what you want to see. If you would just stop this ridiculous search for something bad, then we would all be a lot better off.

Billy: That’s not what I’m doing.

Victoria: And I’m warning you. You better not be saying anything negative about ashland to our children.

Billy: Do you honestly think that I would do that?

Victoria: I don’t know what you’re capable of, billy, not when it comes to ashland. You’re so obsessed, I have to wonder. But if you keep this up, then i will let you know what I’m capable of.

If you have postmenopausal


Phyllis: Hey, what do you think about this dress for summer’s civil ceremony? What do you think about that?

Nick: It’s nice.

Phyllis: Yeah. I mean, or this one right here. I mean, it’s a far cry from the veil that she has, but, I mean, this is sort of how I envision her looking for her big day.

Nick: Yeah. It’s pretty.

Phyllis: You could pretend to be interested.

Nick: What? I-it’s, uh, you know…

Phyllis: Nice and pretty. Right.

Nick: Yeah. Look, whatever you pick is gonna be amazing.

Phyllis: What about my dress? I’ll give you a fashion show later, and you can decide.

Nick: Sounds fun.

Phyllis: “Fun”? Really? That’s all you got for me?

Jack: Imagine my luck, running into both of you.

Abby: Ah, dominic, look! It’s uncle jack.

Jack: Hey, dom! How you doing, buddy? So small. So perfect. It’s a miracle. There’s no other word for it. It’s a miracle. A baby is the greatest gift anyone can get. Chance enjoying the pictures of his son?

Abby: Pictures? Um… well, honestly, he doesn’t even know he’s been born yet.

Jack: Wait, there’s no reaching him at all? Oh, abby, I’m so sorry. Wow. That’s got to be tough.

Abby: It is, yeah, but, you know, in the meantime, um, i have a great support system at the house. And, well, dominic — he fills that void.

Jack: Okay, I don’t know how I would get word to him, but, you know, I have some connections if you’d like me to try.

Abby: Oh, uncle jack, that is very sweet, but we’ve been going through christine and her contacts, and, honestly, if they can’t find him, I don’t think anyone can. And I don’t really want to put chance’s safety at risk.

Jack: Yeah, I get that. I know what it’s like to be far away from someone you love. It’s only got to be harder when you have no idea where they are and you can’t communicate with them.

Abby: Yeah. It just breaks my heart that chance doesn’t even know he’s a father. This waiting — it’s killing me.

Jack: Well, at least you have this bundle of joy to hold tight while you wait.

Abby: Yeah. Yeah, and I know that chance — he’s gonna be home soon. He’ll do whatever it takes to get back to us. And dominic is not gonna miss out on one bit of love. Everyone in the house is gonna make sure of that.

Mariah: I just hate having these thoughts. I feel so awful and so ashamed. I mean, do I blame abby? No, of course not. But — no. Mariah, shut up. Just stop talking.

Tessa: Mariah, you don’t have to hold back with me. I’m here to listen. You can anything you feel. Sometimes you have to say things out loud just to understand them. You’re scared.

Mariah: I am. I’m terrified.

Tessa: Of stitch?

Mariah: [ Sniffles ] I mean, everybody keeps reassuring me that he’s gone and he’s not coming back, that they’ve beefed up security around here and that he wouldn’t risk it, but what if he does? What if he comes back anyway?

Tessa: Well, he is a wanted fugitive, and the police are looking for him. None of us will be fooled again. Besides, chance will be back eventually, and stitch will realize that he has no shot with abby.

Mariah: I know, but that could take weeks, even months. I mean, who knows how long. I want to be brave. I promise. I really, really do. But I am just so afraid.

[ Voice breaking ] I feel like i used up all of my bravery in that room. And I have so many thoughts in my head that are fighting for attention, and it is drowning out all of the good things around me.

Tessa: I just wish you could see yourself from my perspective. You’re so full of these emotions and nerves. It’s overwhelming. It takes you to these bad places that you just can’t seem to get beyond.

Mariah: I don’t know what to do.

Tessa: I think you need some time and some space to work through everything. Hey…why don’t we go somewhere and do something? It could be a really good distraction. What do you say?

Mariah: No. Uh…no, I’m — I’m sorry. I’m just — I’m not — I’m not really feeling up to it. Uh, I actually think I’m gonna take some time alone.

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ]

Phyllis: Okay. Um, something’s going on. And it’s not just, you know, my offer of a lingerie fashion show. Something is distracting you.

Nick: No. In fact, I think you should expand your show to everything that you plan on wearing in italy, including all that sexy lingerie you like to wear.

Phyllis: Alright, you have something on your mind, and it’s not just lingerie.

Nick: I’m just — you know, I’m very happy with what I’m feeling these days, you know? It’s comfortable, and I’m very content. We’ve got all this flirtation and fun going on.

Phyllis: Yeah. I mean, fun is sort of our thing, right?

Nick: Yeah. But it’s not all we have, right?

Phyllis: I mean, I don’t think it is all we have. I mean, I think we have a really good balance of love and fun. And we’ve been through a lot. I think that we’ve paid our dues. So this is easy, right? I mean, we don’t — we don’t have to work so hard anymore, right?

Nick: Yeah. Um… I’m glad to know that we’re on the same page about where things stand with us this time around, you know? I guess we’re lucky like that.

Phyllis: Hey. Hey. I do feel lucky. And I feel grateful.

Chloe: I’m gonna run the numbers by adam, get him to sign off. It’s always a good idea to loop in the boss, be sure he knows that we’re being careful with his money.

Sally: I just left him at crimson lights with sharon.

Chloe: Did you, now?

Sally: You know, I’m still a little bit in the dark about some of genoa city’s past history. What is the deal between the two of them? Did I hear that they were involved once?

Chloe: Ugh. Unbelievable. You actually have a thing for this guy, don’t you?

Sally: Wh– no. I-I was just curious, is all.

Chloe: Yet here you are, doing recon about whether he still has a thing for sharon.

Sally: I’m telling you I was just curious. I thought I picked up a vibe between them.

Chloe: Well, you definitely did. They have a complicated and profound relationship. The thing that blew up chelsea’s relationship with adam was — you guessed it — sharon. Their vibe or connection or whatever you want to call it pushed my friend right to her limits and right over the edge. Adam can’t seem to get sharon out of his system. And he probably never will.

Sharon: What’s that smirk about?

Adam: I’m just amused by your take on sally. She certainly doesn’t inspire neutral opinions and definitely gives people something to react to.

Sharon: Yeah, well, what I’m reacting to is her obvious crush on you.

Adam: [ Scoffs ] Sharon. You are letting your imagination run away with you.

Sharon: No, I don’t think so, adam. See, I’m very good at picking up on things like this.

Adam: Well, it wouldn’t even make a difference either way because right now I am focused on my son and my business. So, thank you again for the advice with connor, but after the conversation that I just had with chelsea, the last thing i need is to get involved with another complicated woman.

Sharon: Maybe it’s the complications that make it interesting.

Adam: Hardly.

[ Sighs ] No, the truth is, it’s me, actually. I am the problem. I failed with you. I failed with chelsea. How am I supposed to put somebody else through that inevitable train wreck? It’s not fair to anyone. I have enough on my plate. I’m fine being alone…for now.

Sharon: You know what, adam? Sometimes that’s the best approach.

Tessa: Hi. I heard you guys had an outing to the park. Was it a nice day?

Abby: It’s so beautiful outside, and you should have seen little dominic. I know he’s probably still too young to understand everything, but he just seems so curious about his new environment.

Tessa: Well, um, mariah and i had a talk while you were gone, and it was pretty difficult. Uh, I think seeing you leave with dominic triggered some things.

Abby: Really? She seemed fine when we left.

Tessa: Yeah, but she’s not. She’s scared. She’s worried. It’s the kidnapping, obviously, but she’s missing dominic, too. She’s struggling, abby. I know you’ve seen it, too. And it’s not getting better. It’s getting worse.

Abby: I know that she’s strong, but I don’t know how anyone can hold up after everything she’s been through.

Tessa: I’m just happy that it didn’t break her completely.

Abby: Look, I love mariah so much, and I am forever grateful for everything that she’s done for us. There’s got to be something we can do to help her through this.

[ Keys clatter ]

Victoria: [ Sighs ]

[ Exhales heavily ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Keys clatter ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Hi. I’m sorry. I didn’t hear you come in.

Ashland: You are okay?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I am now. I, um — I just had an encounter with billy that kind of left a bitter taste.

Ashland: Why do I get the sense it’s about me?

Victoria: Oh, come on. I mean, you know billy. It’s just more of the same. He’s always trying to make trouble where there isn’t any, and now he’s convinced that you’re hiding something from your past.

Ashland: Ah. Well, what did billy uncover to make him think something like that?

Victoria: It’s actually what he didn’t uncover that has him all concerned. He’s just making a big deal out of the fact that he can’t find any evidence of your birth, no hospital record, no certificate, nothing, and — and he can’t find anything about your parents’ death, either. And, um — ugh, it’s ridiculous. And I told him so.

[ Cellphone pings ] Did you hear me? Don’t you have anything to say about billy’s latest inanity?

Ashland: Uh, I-in fact, I do.

[ Sighs ] Billy isn’t wrong. There’s something you need to know.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


my mom is not giving herself enough time to get ready. I wanted her to be able to relax so she wouldn’t feel rushed. Well, I’m guessing wherever she went was important. Hey. Mom! Where were you? Okay, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to worry you. Hi, trina. Hi, mrs. Corinthos. I tried keeping joss calm. I thought you were a runaway bride. No way. I can’t wait to marry jason.

[ Doorbell rings ] Oh, that must be a family member because the guards didn’t call. I’ll got it so you can start getting ready. No, I have plenty of time. Relax. Did you see that? I mean, for weeks, she’s been distracted, almost like she was having second thoughts. Now look at her. She’s so happy. It’s a happy day. And I would be able to enjoy it better if I hadn’t completely humiliated myself. Carly, hi. I know it’s your wedding day, and I’m so sorry to just show up like this, but… it’s important. Nikolas: I’m not up for eating much. I’ve been under the weather, but I was happy to get the invitation. We’re so pleased you accepted. Sorry you’re not feeling well. I understand that you’re an excellent horseman. I adore horses. Do you ride? Not as much as I did as a kid. Oh, where did you grow up? Here, there, and everywhere. Not easy to keep a horse.

[ Chuckles ] But spence and I did a lot of riding at school, though. We were so lucky the lycée had a stable. Well, you’re welcome to use the stables at wyndemere whenever you want. That’s very kind.

[ Chuckles ] So what have you two been doing for fun? Spence has been showing me around port charles. Oh, the insider’s tour. Where have you gone so far? Around. What have you done? All kinds of stuff. Like what? What is with the third degree? You still don’t trust me? That’s not what I’m — he’s just trying to make conversation, spence. Showing some interest. Oh, sure, he’s interested now. Well, well, aren’t we the picture of familial harmony? So will you go with me to carly and jason’s wedding? Is that an actual question? Why wouldn’t it be? Because, maxie, you’ve made it clear to me that seeing me is a painful reminder of you losing your lovely louise. So I don’t understand why you would want me to attend a wedding with you. Well, I realized I’ve been looking at this the wrong way. I might not have my daughter with me right now, but she’s in the world because of you. So maybe I should be associating you with good things instead. I like the sound of that.

[ Chuckles ] So if you can forgive what I said before, I’d like to start over. Curtis: Jordan?

[ Sighs ] Welcome back, beautiful. I — we thought we lost you. Would you text dr. Gatlin-holt and let him know that his patient, jordan ashford, is awake? Yes, doctor. I’m so glad you’re okay. Thank you. My mom’s awake? She’s fully conscious? I didn’t do an exam, but it appears so. Thank god.

[ Laughs ] Phyllis: Nina? Phyllis, is mike there? No, he accidentally left his phone behind. He’s on his way to the tan-O. Is everything alright? Yeah, everything’s fine.

[ Door opens ] Oh, mike is here now.

[ Door closes ] We’ll talk soon. Hey. What’s the matter, nina? You look like you’ve seen a ghost. Well, I wasn’t expecting to see you. You’re supposed to be — dead?

I’m so sorry to disappoint you. Here I am, alive and well. Yeah. Well, peter, why would I think otherwise? I’m just surprised to see you. You were supposed to be in saint lucia. Oh, that’s right. Beautiful saint lucia, where I was scheduled to meet my doom at the hands of your aunt liesl. Very clever, nina. Not clever enough. I told you I had eyes and ears everywhere. One of my contacts alerted me to the fact that aunt liesl’s travel plans were headed to saint lucia as well. I’ll have you know that my would-be assassin has been waylaid. What did you do to her? Is she okay? Oh, auntie’s being handled. Now…

[ Sighs ] …How best to handle you? Being with you when louise arrived was beautiful. It was a real honor. I only wish I could have done more to keep the both of you safe. Okay, if we’re gonna start talking regrets, we’ll be here all night and completely miss that wedding. That is, if you will go with me.

[ Cellphone chimes ] I got to see a patient. So, how’d it go? You were really selling it there, he said, “got to go,” and then bolted. I don’t know. Maybe he saw right through me. Maybe he thinks I’m a complete nut job. Whatever it is, I’m done. Alright, you’re all set. Let me know if you need anything else, okay? Curtis: Thank you. Hi. Hi, yourself. It is good to have you back. Oh, where did I go? Well, that’s — that’s a little too existential for me to answer, but…

[ Chuckles ] …You had everyone around here scared half to death. Everyone?

[ Monitor beeping ] One person in particular. Hey, mom. Hey, get over here. How are you feeling? I’m okay. Promise? Promise. Did they catch the perp they killed barstow?

[ Chuckles ] Look at you, always on the job. Even from a hospital bed. And why am i not surprised? Yeah, I got him, but I had to make a choice — detain him or go back to the house for you. And it really wasn’t a choice at all. Just checking. How’s the patient? Grateful. Thank you, portia. I only wish I could have got us out of that basement before you inhaled all those fumes. I tried, but… you kept me alert as long as you could, by talking and talking to me. And I will never forget it. Please tell me spencer and his father aren’t invited to the wedding. Not unless maxie went rogue and did it without telling anyone. Which is a definite possibility. Well, I mean, even if she did and spencer’s there, who cares? Trina, are you worried about what spencer thinks of you? Esme called me out in front of him and now spencer thinks I’m crushing on him. And are you? What’s going on? I — I’m moving away from port charles. I can’t take avery with me. You know, it’s killing me, but I need to leave my little girl here… with you. Well, look at you, young spencer, all grown up, huh? No thanks to you. Easy, easy. We don’t have to dwell on and exaggerate ancient history, especially when we all have things that we regret, behavior that wouldn’t stand up to scrutiny. Anything that spencer might regret happened when he was a child. What’s your excuse? Okay, you’re gonna give this charming young woman the wrong impression. You’ll have to forgive this family spat. This is all ancient history, really. Not really. Address my girlfriend again, you’ll be history. I don’t know why you’re so defensive. You’re making me think you’re hiding something. I’ll give you this much. You’re good at mind games. Now, who does that remind me of? Oh, yes. Helena. Like mother, like son. Okay, this little father-son thing you’ve rediscovered is really touching. Well, at least I know who my father is. Anna: Oh, boy. Okay. That’s quite enough.

I’m into spencer, or was. I’m not sure how I feel about him these days. I mean, one minute, we’re really starting to connect, and the next minute, here comes his secret continental girlfriend. I’m sorry, trina. Don’t be. You tried to warn me that spencer was too good to be true. Yeah, but I was hoping I was wrong, that he got some perspective when he was away and maybe grew up a little bit. Look, you’ve had it rough this summer. First with that guy, victor, and then spencer, who completely led you on and lied by omission. I could just throttle him for his insensitivity. Then throttle me, too, because spencer lied about something else, and I helped him. What are you doing? Where is all this coming from, anyway? Valentin is the reason why my father stayed away so long and pretended he was dead. To protect me and recoup our rightful fortune. I’m sorry, I didn’t realize he was protecting anyone. I thought he was hiding. You bastard. Okay, this is all old news. None of us are the same people that we once were. None of what you’ve done will be forgotten, valentin. Despite your efforts, you lost and you will die without the cassadine fortune. And despite your pathetic attempt to cling on to the name, you will only ever be helena’s cast-off, no-name son. Let’s go. Let’s go. Come on, let’s go. Nothing like a mutual enemy to bring family together. Who’s the bossy brit? With the gas escaping and you collapsing, I was practically babbling. I don’t even know what I said in that basement. It’s all really a blur. You said that we need to hold on because our children need us. I sure do. Commissioner ashford, hi. Hi. Happy to see you’re awake. I see that the bump on your head didn’t affect your memory. That’s because she’s a champ. How’s your throat? Scratchy. I’ll let dr. Gatlin-holt update you. Doctor, what do you think? Aside from some throat irritation, the patient doesn’t seem to have any of the more serious respiratory or cognitive symptoms commonly associated with carbon monoxide poisoning. Completely agree. But, commissioner, we’re gonna have to discuss your latest test results. What does the new bloodwork indicate? Dr. Ashford, I recognize that you are an excellent physician, but you are not my physician. I’ll feel you in after my exam, okay? Okay. I just want to say that you’ve been great, and I never got a chance to say thank you. I haven’t had a chance to — to thank you either. If you hadn’t have shown up when you did… jordan and I weren’t gonna make it out of that basement. Hey, tj. Mols. Hey. How’d you know? Shawn called me. Thanks. I knew you’d want molly and I knew she’d want to be here. How’s your mom doing? She’s awake and alert. That’s all good. We don’t know about the long-term yet. We had a deal, nina. All you had to do was find a lead, so I could track down my daughter and then I’d leave your nephew in port charles and leave you alone so you could live out your cozy little lie of a life. How is sonny, by the way? You two doing a construction project together now? Listen, peter, just leave sonny out of it. You want me to help you find your daughter? Okay, fine. I will help you. Just tell me what you need. Our agreement became null and void the moment you sent me off to be ambushed. Okay, I panicked. I panicked. I am so sorry. It just — I wasn’t sure that I could get all the information that you demanded of me. I was afraid. No, what you were was overconfident. You were so convinced that your demented aunt would succeed in her mission, you never bothered to consider the alternative. Well, I’m sorry, nina. Liesl failed. And now there have to be consequences.

Okay, here goes. Spencer is victor. I’m sorry, I don’t think I heard you right. It was spencer I met the night of my graduation party at the savoy, but he told me his name was victor. That’s why he didn’t want me to take any pictures of him or be with you and cam on the 4th of july. He didn’t want to blow his cover. Okay, I’m not remotely shocked that spencer would lie. I mean, he was a huge liar when we were kids. But what was the point? What did it get him? He begged me not to tell anyone he was in town earlier than he claimed. He said it was because of his relationship with his father, to avoid drama. Oh, please. Spencer craves drama. That’s why he threw that over-the-top party. And of course, his father had to go even bigger by pretending to stab him. I mean, seriously, I swear those two deserve each other. They probably do, but that’s not the point. I shouldn’t have covered for spencer, and I definitely never should have lied to you. I violated our “sisters before misters” rule. You’re really gonna let this stalker drive you out of town? My divorce from nikolas is almost final. When it is, I’m gone. Hopefully not forever. Wow. Well, if you’re taking this step, you must feel like you don’t have a choice. I don’T. Things have gotten worse, more dangerous. The night of spencer’s party, my car was set on fire and the stalker left kiki’s G.H. Badge there for me to find. Oh, never mind anna. Come on. Really showed valentin. Come on.

[ Groans ] You’re hurt. I met ava’s hired goons today, and I may have run into a fist or two. I’m okay. Ava had you beaten? Spencer, it’s fine, alright? It’s — it’s complicated, and I don’t want to get into it now. If you’ll excuse me, since I doubt that the bar serves ibuprofen or aspirin, I’m gonna have a gin and tonic.

[ Groans ] What kind of sick game is ava playing now? Takes gamers to recognize game. But if you want to repair the relationship, you’re gonna have to meet him halfway and control that temper of yours. Unless you’re with an enemy like valentin. That was hot. Why did you go over there, anyway? I don’t know. You okay? Yeah. Spencer was just posturing for his girlfriend. Well, that helena remark was below the belt. I was probably asking for it. What about you? How’s your day going so far? Mm. Tj texted me on my way over here. Apparently, jordan was exposed to a gas leak or something. She’s at G.H. Now. He’s gonna keep me updated. I’m so sorry. What are you doing here? Go be with your friend. You’re my friend, too. Tj: How’s my mom? Well, first things first, commissioner ashford has given me permission to discuss her medical condition with you, so that’s out of the way. As you know, we ran some tests because we were worried about her kidney functions. Her albumin-to-creatinine ratio wasn’t what we wanted, so we used a formula to determine the gfr, and that number that we got back fell well below the benchmark that indicates kidney disease. Okay, doc, plain english, please. Mom’s in renal failure. Will you just wait a second? Are you really bailing because austin didn’t say yes right away? Because that guy is so going to the wedding with you. Okay, I’m not really comfortable manipulating the good samaritan who delivered my baby. Whoa, back up. That good samaritan is the same guy who’s trying to get a piece of the elq pie that my great-grandfather clearly didn’t want him to have. Oh, my god. You have a one-track mind. Is it really that terrible to leave valentin in charge of elq? Because from what I see, he’s an effective ceo who happens to think the sun rises and sets with his daughter, bailey. He’s gonna be completely heartbroken when he finds out she’s not his. And now I’m letting austin think I’m interested. Is elq really worth all this emotional devastation? Let’s try this again, shall we? Unlock your phone and hand it over. You can thank valentin’s obsession with you for the fact that you’re still breathing. No more games, nina. You’re gonna find out if valentin knows where my daughter is. Well, valentin’s good, but he’s not infallible. I can’t make him know something he doesn’T. Oh, I’d try real hard if I were you. Oh, there he is. Oh, and just so we’re clear, you’re on speaker… as of now.

[ Line ringing ] Nina, what a nice surprise. I’m sorry to bother you, valentin, but I just can’t get maxie off my mind and how much she must miss louise. Oh, I know, it’s awful. I was wondering if you had any information about the baby or who would have taken her? No, anna and i have been investigating, but we’re running into nothing but dead ends so far. I promise not to get maxie’s hopes up, I just need a little reassurance that there must be some new information, valentine. No, no, nothing. Are you alright? Yeah, it’s just a little bit more rustic here than I like. You must love staying at the metro court, valentin, you get room service any time you like. And so it goes. Bye. Room service, what the hell are you getting in? Well, peter, I had to make it sound natural. I couldn’t just ask about louise and hang up.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Door opens ] Oh, mr. Sinclair, what brings you back to our neck of the woods?

you don’t have to date austin on my account, okay? I have my own opinions on the guy, but that’s on me. Thanks. Look, so far, your plan is working. You’re keeping my daughter safe from her maniac father and you’re taking really good care of her. I owe you more than I could ever repay, but my gratitude does not mean I’m writing you a blank check.

[ Scoffs ] The nephrologist has classified the commissioner’s condition as acute kidney injury. Meaning she still has renal failure. So this is a very serious situation, but it’s also totally reversible if we treat her quickly. Well, thank god. Are we talking medications and a renal diet or more aggressive treatment? All of the above. I mean, it’s all-hands-on-deck time. But, yeah, I think the first point of attack is intense hemodialysis until her kidney recovers. Okay, so we get her here a few times a week for dialysis. Because of the frequency and the length of her treatments and given the fact that she only has one kidney, I have recommended that the commissioner undergo treatment at a specialty clinic in albany. Albany? Yeah, and she’s agreed. She’s good to go. I just have to arrange transport for her, which is what I’m gonna go do. Thanks, mac. That means a lot. I’ll rest easier knowing that you’ve got this. You are a thorough professional.

[ Chuckles ] But it’s time to put your health first. I intend do. I just needed to update mac so that he could cover me on my leave of absence. I could be in albany for weeks. You made the right choice. Dr. Gatlin-holt’s treatment plan is sound. You’ll be back on the job in no time. Thanks in part to you. You kept us both going in that basement. I was out of it, fighting to stay conscious, but I could still hear you talking to me. Josslyn: Trina. Spencer put you in an impossible situation. Looking back, I wish I had come right out and told ava who victor was and what he really thought of her. Maybe the stalker left kiki’s badge to torment me. Maybe it was some kind of warning. Regardless, I can’t let avery become collateral damage. Okay. I’ll take care of avery until you can come back for her. Thank you. Thank you, carly. That is the plan. Anna: That was nina? Yeah. It was odd. She didn’t sound like herself. How so? Well, her tone, it sounded forced. She was asking questions about maxie’s daughter. I mean, it’s not the happiest of subjects. Maybe she was overcompensating or something? Maybe. Hey. You have very good instincts. What are they telling you? That I’ve got to call her back to make sure. Peter was just giving me an update, phyllis, about that meeting that he took in new york with that editor. How exciting. Was it successful, mr. Sinclair? That remains to be seen.

[ Cellphone rings ] Hmm. I’m sure you’re just being modest. You strike me as a real go-getter. We were just hashing out the plot points for the book that peter is pitching. It’s confidential, phyllis, so if you don’t mind leaving. I can take the hint. I only came back to drop off mike’s phone. We were supposed to go over the invoice for the construction supplies, but since mike’s not here, I’ll grab it and look it over at home. I had no idea all this was being delivered, though it’s certainly needed. Can I get you two a cold one while I’m back here? Peter: No, thanks. I have to keep my wits about me.

[ Yelps ] See what I mean? On the outside, I looked fine.

I was just rambling in that basement. When you talked about trina’s father? Portia: And I need to tell trina how much I love her. And I need to tell trina the truth. The truth about her father. Jordan: I understand. I went through a similar situation with tj. You did? Sure. It was a careful and nuanced conversation when I explained to him about my life undercover, about the mistakes I made. Tj was angry at first. But you shouldn’t worry. Trina accepts that taggert is only human, and if there are still past mistakes that you need to discuss, I’m sure she’ll understand. Did I…get that all wrong? No, no, no, that’s — that’s — that’s exactly right. And I should go call trina right now. How are you feeling, mom? I’m fine. Molly, can you do me a favor? Yes, I will look after tj. You read my mind. Thank you. Is this a private party, or can anyone join? I’m sorry. I won’t be able to help you with your investigation. No. Furthest thing from my mind. You just concentrate on getting better. That is definitely the plan. Who writes checks anymore? What does that even mean? It means I’m not obligated to do you any inappropriate favors. I understand. Look, the quartermaine ways die hard, a little backstabbing here, a little manipulation there, nothing too serious. At least that’s what we tell ourselves before things go sideways. Look, I’m really trying to do better. It’s hard to change old patterns of behavior. Yeah. But I do appreciate you trying. Since we haven’t ordered, veuillez m’excuser? It’s considered rude to go to the bathroom in the middle of a meal in france. Oh, well, we’re in port charles. But speaking of places you used to live, what’s it gonna take you to come back home to wyndemere? I’m not sure. What would that look like? We’d have to figure it out. I’d like to try under the same roof. You willing to take a chance? Yeah, I’m open to discussing it, especially since kevin keeps offering me muesli in the morning.

[ Laughs ] Ah. Alright, that’s it for me. I’m gonna go home and have an ice bath. Say goodbye to esme. Sure. Today was fun. We should do it again soon. Dinner’s on me.

[ Monitor beeping ] So, albany, huh? I hear it’s a great city, especially for kidney issues. You are not to worry about a thing. Whatever you need, you know I got you. I won’t hang up on you if I get an occasional phone call with one of your crazy stories. You better not. Might even have a few you haven’t heard.

[ Chuckles ] The medical transport team will be here shortly. Is now a good time to get you prepped? Yeah, let’s do this. I just can’t believe I let some guy question my own thought process. I admit, maybe I shouldn’t have confronted esme on a hunch, but — no, no buts. You’re the most levelheaded person I know. If you think something’s off, it’s off. Thanks for having my back, joss. Always. Sisters before misters.

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh. Hey, mom. What? Okay, I’ll be right there. My mom and commissioner ashford were in some accident, and they’re at G.H. Oh, go. I’ll try to be on time for the wedding. Don’t worry, don’t worry. I am sorry that you have to go through this alone. I guess all that’s left is to tell avery that she will have to be without her mother again. You know, we can tell her that you’re taking a trip. That is, if you want me there. I do. I think when the time comes, I think — I think it’d be good if we told her together. Drop the gun. Drop yours, and I’ll consider it. Your friend has guts, nina. I’m also a crack shot. Lenny took me to the firing range often. Let her breathe. Listen, mike’s gonna come back to get his — to get his phone, so why don’t you just let us go and you can live to see your daughter? Oh, my life isn’t the one you need to be worried about. Not only did you betray me, but it’s clear from your phone call to valentin, you’re no longer of any use to me. And you know how I deal with my liabilities. I don’t care what this is about, but I do care about my friend. I won’t have you threatening her in the bar my husband and I built. You have to the count of 10 to release nina. You’re a smart woman, phyllis. A straight shooter in every sense, so to speak, right? So I’m sure you understand by now that I’m gonna be able to squeeze off a shot before you take me down. Shoot the bastard! Letting him go free puts others in danger! Please, phyllis, shoot him! Shut up! Shut up! I don’t want that, either. But I can’t risk your life.

[ Whimpers ] No. Wait.

[ Gasps ] Ahh!

[ Grunts ]

[ Coughing ] You know, it’s really too bad you came in when you did and… I actually kind of liked you.

I’m glad we got that settled. I need to go over to the garden court at metro and do a walkthrough. Yeah, sorry about the hold-up. I know you want everything to be perfect. No, it’s fine. And I’ll be too busy to care that I’m dateless, since austin’s clearly not into me and I probably have a polite text to look forward to declining my invitation. Austin: Hey. So in response to your earlier question, maxie, I would love to be your plus-one at this wedding, if the offer still stands. Great. So I’ll call you after my shift. We’ll sort out the details because I much prefer a phone call to texting. I’m not saying… just saying. I love you, mom. I will see you soon. I love you, too. Don’t worry about a thing here, jordan, okay? I will even water your plants for you.

[ Laughs ] It’s gonna be alright, jordan. Just know that, okay? I’ll be in touch. See you soon, ash. See you soon. Josslyn: Hello, spencer. Or should I call you victor? Thank you, carly, for loving avery, for taking care of her. You don’t have to thank me for that. I would die for her. I know you would. It’s the only way I can leave her. Oh, and congratulations to you and jason. I mean that sincerely. A new chance at happiness. That should never be taken for granted. She didn’t pick up? Valentin: No. You know, it’s strange. She made a pointed remark about my living at the metro court when she knows full well I’m living with the quartermaines. Did she forget? No, I doubt it. And before she signed off, she said, “that’s how it goes.” That’s our song. I sang that for her at the nurses’ ball years ago. I think she’s trying to signal to me that she’s in some kind of trouble. Okay. I need to go check on nina. Let’s go. How soon can we get to nixon falls? Peter, just go. Leave us in peace. You know, the longer you’re here, the greater the chance that you’re gonna get discovered. Oh, I intend to leave, and soon. But you and phyllis won’t be. In fact, the two of you won’t be setting foot outside the tan-o ever again.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Days of Our Lives Transcript

Days of Our Lives logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jack: I’m glad you finally decided to trust me.

Gwen: It’s not that I didn’t trust you. Um… I was delivering drugs for snyder because– well, what he had on me is so… horrible really is the only word for it.

Jack: Okay.

Gwen: Something that I am so ashamed of that I was afraid that you would disown me. And well, living with my deception has been a great deal more difficult. Perhaps that’s your influence. Anyway…I can’t keep this from you any longer.

Ej: Of course I’ll hold for the judge. I’ll never understand being required to listen to elevator music while on hold.

Xander: Come on, mate. You don’t wanna do this.

Ej: You broke the terms of our agreement, xander. I got the drug charges against you dropped. I talked nicole into hiring you back. And in return, you treated me like a mark. That was a very big mistake. I’m an officer of the court, and I have no choice but to see that you pay for your crimes.

Marlena: Do you really think that bonnie murdered that woman, and then stole a million dollars from xander?

Kayla: I honestly don’t know what to think. I just feel so badly for justin.

[Phone beeps] Oh, sorry, sorry, sorry. Hmm, hmm.

Marlena: What?

Kayla: Well, jack had made an appointment for me to evaluate doug this morning and now he just canceled.

Marlena: I hope that means that doug is back to being himself again.

Julie: Oh my. I’m so thrilled. I mean, our family recipe is going to be available to everybody in salem right here in the square. I mean, it’s a–it’s a thrill. It’s a wonderful occasion. And remarkably, these donuts–they taste exactly like alice’S.

Doug: I’m sorry, darling, but who the heck is alice?

Julie: Alice horton. My grandmother.

Doug: Well, then, why don’t you just take a box full of donuts over to her and ask her what she thinks of them?

Chad: Your mom let me in.

Abigail: Yeah, I see.

Chad: It’s really good to see you.

Abigail: It’s good to see you too.

Chad: Can I–can I hug you or something? Male narrator: Like sand through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Sweeping orchestration]


Xander: You can’t send me to prison.

Ej: That’s not true, and you know it.

Xander: After everything I’ve done for you.

Ej: Forgive me, I can’t recall owing you for a thing.

Xander: Nashville?

Ej: What about it?

Xander: Oh, I guess you don’t remember ’cause you were a vegetable during most of it. But who do you think made sure you were fed? I literally put food in your mouth three times a day.

Ej: Hmm. And I’m sure you did that because you feel a deep sense of empathy for your fellow man.

Xander: I wiped the drool off your face. You were helpless as a baby!

Ej: Return that this instant.

Xander: You were my special project, my little elvis.

Ej: Give me the phone now.

Xander: What are you gonna do if I don’t?

[Soft somber music]


Abigail: You didn’t tell me you were coming.

Chad: I was afraid you’d talk me out of it. I mean, it’s, it’s, it’s become clear that you don’t have any plans to come home. Abby, the kids miss you.

Abigail: I miss them too; that’s why I write them every day and I video chat with them every night.

Chad: I know that. I miss you. I miss my wife. Please come home–come back to your life–with us.

Jack: I’ve seen you at your worst, gwen. I still welcomed you into my life. So just tell me–what was snyder holding over your head?

Gwen: He knew that I lied about my miscarriage.

Jack: What?

Gwen: He knew that I said that abigail caused it even though it wasn’t true.

Jack: Why did you lie?

Gwen: Well, I came to in the hospital. That’s when it hit me all over again that I’d miscarried. And I just wanted to make abigail feel something too. So I came between her and chad. And the person who knew about my lie was snyder. That’s the big secret he used to make me run those drugs for him.

Jack: Why did xander say he was part of it?

Gwen: He was covering for me, jack. He didn’t do it for me. He did it for you. He didn’t want you to accept the truth that your oldest daughter had wrecked your youngest daughter’s life.

Abigail: I can’t come home yet. Grandma’s estate is still a mess, and I’m not going to leave my mom alone to deal with it.

Chad: Abby, you said you needed space. I stayed away, okay? It has been–it has been months. Now can’t jennifer find somebody else to help finish everything up?

Abigail: I’m sorry. I need more time. Okay?

Chad: Abby, just stop. Okay. I–I’m–I’m–I’m ask–I’m begging you. Just please talk to me.

Kayla: Hey!

Johnny: Aunt kayla, hi.

Kayla: I heard you were in town. It’s so good to see you. Look at you all grown up.

Johnny: Yeah. Tell my dad that, will you?

Kayla: Yes. I definitely will. But listen, I’ll call you. We’ll get together, okay?

Johnny: Okay. Great.

Kayla: All right. Bye-bye.

Marlena: Sure.

Johnny: Hello.

Marlena: Hi, sweetie.

Johnny: I’m sorry you haven’t seen me before now.

Marlena: Well, that’s all right. Why don’t you sit down?

Johnny: Sure.

Marlena: So why did you come to my office instead of coming to the house?

Johnny: Because I’m having problems with allie and i wanted to talk to you in private.

Marlena: Oh. What kind of problems are you having with your sister?

Johnny: I’ll get to that. But first–I just wanted to say, I know how much you helped her when things were tough, and what a difference that made to her. And that she probably couldn’t have gotten through it without you. And how amazing you were. We’re so lucky to have you for a grandma–

Marlena: Aren’t you laying it on just a little bit thick?

Johnny: Oh, come on. I mean it.

Marlena: I know that look on your face.

Johnny: What look?

Marlena: It’s a look you had when you were seven years old and you wanted me to talk your mother into letting you keep the snake you found in the garden.

Johnny: It was just a garter snake. It wouldn’t have been any trouble.

Marlena: Yeah. You want something? Tell me what it is.

Ej: If I have to leave here without my phone, I’ll just get another phone to speak to the judge. You won’t like what happens after I do.

Xander: Just take a deep breath.

Ej: Don’t patronize me.

Xander: You know the old saying, get more flies with honey than you do with vinegar? Once the cops see that your money had nothing to do with bonnie gunning down her sister-in-law in cold blood–

Ej: Time is money and I’ve wasted enough of it on you. I’m not inclined to wait any longer.

Xander: You are not leaving this room until I have your word that you aren’t gonna call that judge back and send me to prison.

Julie: This is alice and tom. You loved them so much. Don’t tell me you don’t remember them.

Doug: Well, of course I do. They’re your grandparents–alice and tom. And the square is dedicated to their memory.

Julie: Darling, you could tell that just by reading that plaque.

Doug: Don’t be so upset, my love. It’s a beautiful summer day and we are enjoying it together.

Julie: Don’t pretend. Please. Tell me the truth, doug.

Doug: Okay, truth. Well, when I see these faces, I have the feeling that they are very fine people. But truth, honey, I don’t know either one of them from adam. Oh, my. Why can’t I remember them? What is wrong with me?

Julie: I don’t know, sweetheart, I don’t know. We’re gonna find out. We’re gonna fix this.

Doug: Okay, okay.

Get ready. It’s time for

the savings event of the year.

Johnny: Why do you think I’m after something?

Marlena: Because if you wanted to talk about allie, you would’ve called and made an appointment.

Johnny: Okay. I do want something. I want to spend some time with my favorite grandma.

Marlena: Yeah. I’m sure flattery gets you a long way. But the people that sit in that chair come in here to be honest.

Johnny: Okay, fair enough. I want to make an independent film and I need investors to help me finance my dream.

Kayla: I’m so surprised to see you both since jack canceled your schedule appointment.

Julie: Well, jack canceled because I asked him to, but since then–doug and I both think that that was a mistake.

Ej: It’s clear that you have diminished mental capacity, so I’ll use short words. I am no longer the vegetable I was in nashville.

Xander: You sure about that, mate?

Ej: I’m sure.

Gwen: I’m sorry. I can see what this has done to you. But ugh! I have to say it feels like this tremendous weight has just been lifted off my shoulders. I just, I couldn’t allow you to continue blaming xander when he had nothing to do with it. But I also was so scared that you would hate me if I told you–

Jack: You were right to be scared. Do you have any idea what you’ve done to abigail? Do you? You pack your things. You get the hell out of here.

Gwen: Dad, please.

Jack: Don’t you ever call me that again. You are no daughter of mine.

Jack: Gwen? Honey? Whatever you did, it’s really torturing you. Please tell me. Tell me about you and snyder.

Chad: Thank you.

Abigail: Grandma just kept a lot of stuff at our house, you know? Just the attic and the basement, you know, piled to the ceiling with just clothes and books and knickknacks. I’m going through some upstairs closet the other day and I, I find this box.

Chad: What was in it?

Abigail: Things for a newborn. Some tiny sleepers, and blankets, and bibs. A little lamb and stuff, you know? Mom and I were wondering if she had kept it for her or if she had kept it for me. And I’m of course just thinking keep, donate, trash. Then it hits me that gwen’s daughter was my niece. And she’s your dau–I mean, she’s your daughter. And she’s our kids’ half sister. And I thought I was doing fine. You know, I thought I’m getting past all of that. And the truth is that that child was a member of our family, and I guess I just had never really seen that, you know?

Chad: Yeah. But you could–you couldn’t–

Abigail: I know, but no matter what anyone says, I can’t help, but feel like I, I killed that child. Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Chad: Abby– you didn’t kill that baby. You wouldn’t do that. Look at me. You are one of the best mothers that I have ever seen. Okay? You did–I read the letters that you write the kids every day, or the boxes full of surprises every week. When I don’t know how to handle one of their problems, you know exactly what to do to make them feel better. A thousand miles away.

Abigail: Thank you for being sweet. Thank you. I love them so much. And I just– I just can’t help but think that gwen probably loved her baby too, you know? And all I wanted was for that baby to disappear. And–oh my god, chad, I told her that the baby would be better off dead rather than have her as a mother. And then I went and I made sure that’s what happened.

Jack: Gwen, why don’t you just say it?

Gwen: Well, it’s more a matter of how to say it.

Xander: I’ve got it–tell him you used to be a hooker. Tell jack that snyder was one of your clients.

Gwen: The thing snyder knew about me is that I used to be a prostitute.

Xander: You shouldn’t have done that, mate.

Ej: And what are you gonna do about this, hmm?

Marlena: So… tell me about your movie.

Johnny: I wanna put a new focus on everyday life. I made a couple of shorts on my phone.

Marlena: Do you have any other investors?

Johnny: I almost had uncle tony and anna, but dad made sure that didn’t happen. All he cares about is me being the next generation at dimera, but I’ll never do it. I don’t care how hard I have to fight. I know what I want, and I’m going to make my dream come true.

Xander: Enough!

Ej: This isn’t done until there’s only one of us still standing.

Xander: You sure about that? I’d hate to mess up your pretty new face.

Certain hpv-related cancers?

Marlena: Tell me some more about your movie. Tell me about the theme.

Johnny: I haven’t really settled on one idea yet, but I think it’d be cool to do like an indie version on the life of greta thunberg or matt fraser. I don’t see either one of those people giving the rights to a guy like me for their story, but all I’m really sure of is that I want the focus to be on somebody who I can connect with. Somebody who inspires me.

Marlena: And who are you thinking should write it for you?

Johnny: Me.

Marlena: Oh. Wow. That’S… that’s ambitious, I guess.

Johnny: Well, it eliminates the fights between the writer and the director.

Marlena: You know, you should–you should maybe call your brother. And will spent some, some time in hollywood and he’s learned the lessons about how to navigate some difficult situations.

Ej: That’s for all those wretched lima beans in nashville. I kept spitting them out, but you just shoved them back in my mouth and laughed. He who laughs best laughs last.

Gwen: When I moved to philly, that was before I met jake. It was supposed to be my fresh start. That turned out to be an absolute bloody kick in the teeth. The job I was supposed to have completely fell through, and I didn’t have a dime of savings. And I wasn’t about to go hungry and live on the streets ’cause I’d already done a lot of that with mom. So–I started making some contacts and–offering my services.

Jack: Is that how you met up with snyder?

Gwen: He was one of my clients.

Jack: He lived in philadelphia then?

Gwen: No, he was there for a medical convention or something.

Jack: He was the doctor who told you that the baby was gone.

Gwen: Rotten karma that. When I was admitted to the hospital, he walked into the room.

Jack: He was there when I came to see you.

Gwen: Yeah. He knew who my father was and used that to blackmail me. He threatened to tell you about me unless I did what he wanted. I’m so, so, so ashamed of what I’ve done in philly and when I moved here. All the things that I did to you and your family. But you have to know that I’m not that person anymore. Will you ever forgive me? Can you forgive me, jack?

Chad: Abby, you have to find a way to forgive yourself. Okay, gwen waged a full-out attack on you from the day we hired her. And I, I bought into her lies. I’ll never understand why. But that baby was conceived because of my mistake. Do you understand? Gwen may have miscarried, but if she’s still coming between us, it is because of me.

Abigail: You know, you tried to make me feel better. And you kept saying that you didn’t want to be having a baby with her and I believed you. But I need you to be honest with me, because I know the kind of father that you are. Is there any part of you that hates me for what I made happen to your child?

Kayla: Well, you have the blood pressure and the heart rate of a man half your age.

Doug: Must be all that racquetball.

Julie: That’s wonderful. But today we’re concerned about his mind. He forgot that he locked me in our walk-in freezer at the restaurant. He confused marlena and vivian’s names, and now–he can’t remember tom and alice. So, kayla, can you please help me understand what’s happening to him?

Doug: What the young lady is asking is, does her old man have alzheimer’s?

Limu emu & doug

Kayla: There are a lot of possible causes for these mental lapses of yours.

Doug: Not just alzheimer’s?

Kayla: No. And a lot of the causes are eminently treatable.

Julie: So–there’s hope?

Kayla: I am so glad that you two decided to come today. I hope that this will ease your mind. I am going to do a lot of tests. And when I get the answers back, we will figure out what the next step is. Together.

Johnny: You’re a genius.

Marlena: Will you stop that please?

Johnny: I’m serious. I remember us all moving to hollywood so will could sell a screenplay he’d written about mom’s life.

Marlena: Ah, yes. “The sami brady story.”

Johnny: That could be exactly what I’m looking for actually. Do you think will would let me read his script?

Marlena: I don’t know. You could–you could ask him certainly. And if you meet some resistance, you could have him call me. He’s my other favorite grandson. And I will talk to john about maybe getting involved financially.

Johnny: Oh, come on. I know you’re the one who calls the shots.

Marlena: No, that’s entirely not true. John and I are equal partners. May I give you some advice?

Johnny: Sure.

Marlena: Save some of that rakish charm for when you get to hollywood; you’re going to need it. I’m wondering if the university taught you anything about making an elevator pitch.

Johnny: What’s that?

Marlena: Look it up.

Johnny: You’re amazing.

Marlena: Come on. Get outta here. I got work to do.

Johnny: It’s good to see you.

Marlena: You too. Hmm.

Gwen: Could you please say something? You look so very upset.

Jack: I am. With myself. You wouldn’t have been forced to do what you did if I had been in your life.

Gwen: Then you understand?

Jack: You had no backup. You did what you had to do to survive.

Gwen: I can’t–I just– you’re not ashamed of me?

Jack: No. I, I have done so many things that I have been ashamed of in my life. If I judged you harshly, I would be the biggest hypocrite in the world. You may remember this from all that research that you did, but my, my adopted father, harper devereaux– he hunted and killed women who were sex workers.

Gwen: Oh. Your life hasn’t exactly been easy either then has it?

Jack: Thank god I met jennifer. Thank god you got out of the life before you encountered a psychopath like him. Oh, god. You’re safe now.

Gwen: I thought you were gonna chuck me out.

Jack: No. You’re my daughter. After what you’ve told me, you’ll always have a place in my life. And in my heart.

Chad: The idea of fathering a child with gwen, it was–it was a nightmare. Okay. But then I thought, that child did not ask to be born. So then I knew that I had to try my best to be a father to that baby. You know? But no part of me, there’s no part anywhere in my body or soul that hates you for anything. I wish you’d fly back with me. So you and me and the kids, so we can be a family again.

Abigail: I want that. I want it, I do. I want that too, but I can’T. I can’T. It’s not just about the guilt. It’s not about the way I feel about gwen and the fact that I didn’t want her and your baby to exist. It’s, it’s us. It’s you and it’s me and I– you were unfaithful to me. And I’m having a really hard time looking at you and seeing the man that I saw there before. Seeing the love of my life, my devoted husband. I’m having a really hard time trusting you.

Chad: Let me help you. I’m gonna help you do that. Okay? I’m gonna help you do that. However long it takes. Whatever I have to do. I am devoted from now on to making you happy. To making you feel safe and loved. Oh, my god, you are the most important person in the entire world to me. You always will be. I’m nothing without you. You know that? I’m nothing. Come home. What do you say? I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Kayla: I know this is scary. But let’s try not to think of the worst, okay?

Doug: We’ll do our best. Won’t we?

Julie: You bet.

Kayla: All right. I will be back once I’ve scheduled the tests. Hang in there.

Doug: My love… I know who I am and I know who you are. Even, even if I forget our names, I will never, ever forget how much I love you.

Jack: When I think about what you have been through, it breaks my heart.

Gwen: Please don’t–please don’t, don’t, don’t feel sorry for me anymore. It’s okay because how very blessed am i to have a father that not only loves me, but believes in me too?

Jack: I’m feeling blessed too. Because you trust me enough to be open with me. And I only hope that my love for you, and my belief in you helps you to believe in yourself. And I’m gonna do everything i can to help you and support you. And I will–I will always be here for you. I always will. You know that by now, don’t you?

Gwen: I do. I’m so grateful.

[Phone rings]

Jack: Oh, I’m sorry. It’s, it’s, it’s jennifer.

Gwen: Take it please. Please take it.

Jack: Hello, my love? Yeah. How’s everything going?

Gwen: Well, xander, I went with your ridiculous hooker story, because I’m a bloody coward. But I couldn’t let my father hate me. I couldn’t lose him.

Xander: Ugh! Damn you, dimera. The one that laughs last and hardest and longest is gonna be me, you son of a bitch. That is gonna be me.

Johnny: Tough day at the office?

Ej: You should see the other bloke. Have you got the financing for your pipe dream?

Johnny: I might have. Also got a lead on a hot script. I don’t think you’ll be a fan of the subject matter though.

Ej: Try me.

Johnny: It’s called “the sami brady story.”

Ej: You’re joking.

Johnny: I’m not. And I’m afraid some of the characters don’t get their happy hollywood ending.

Abigail: Yes.

Chad: Yes?

Abigail: Yes. There’s nothing that I want more in the world than to let go of the guilt and the pain and trust in our marriage again. And come home to you and thomas and charlotte.

Chad: Yeah. And don’t–and don’t worry. Okay? I got you. No matter what. It’s not gonna be easy, but I am gonna be with you every step of the way.

[ Dramatic music ]

Quinn: Eric, what are you– what are you saying?

Eric: That I love you. I love you so deeply. I planned this night for you.

Carter: Okay, you obviously have big plans for quinn, so I’mma get out of the way–

Eric: No, no. You don’t leave. You stay here, please. Stay. You’re right. I do have plans for my wife for tonight. A surprise. And I want you to be a part of it.

Brooke: This is delicious.

Katie: Oh, I know. Isn’t it though?

Donna: Thank you for suggesting this.

Katie: Well thank you for not killing me for wanting to do takeout. I just couldn’t miss that call to tokyo.

Brooke: We understand. Just so we could sit down and share a meal together. No matter the location.

Donna: Seems like it’s been a long time since we’ve done this.

Katie: Yeah, it’s been way too long.

Brooke: We’ve all been so busy. Lots going on.

Donna: No, you two have. Not me. My life is pretty uneventful these days. The most excitement I’m getting is taking beth and douglas to get ice cream. Yeah, I actually look forward to finding out what the flavor of the month is. Mm-hmm. That’s how boring I’ve become.

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: I remember when you used to talk about the flavors of the month and you always referring to men.

Donna: Brooke, I mean, come on.

Brooke: It’s true. Maybe that’s what you need to spice up your life a little bit. A new man. So is there anybody you have your eye on?

Liam: Sir.

Wyatt: Thank you. Gotta say, it’s good seeing you like this.

Liam: Yeah, thank you. Wait, like what?

Wyatt: You know, not in a jumpsuit.

Liam: Ah, yeah. Not gonna miss that.

Wyatt: I mean, it was a good color on you.

Liam: It was a good color. I thought it was a good color. Hope threw out all my blue shirts, except for this one. We had to arm wrestle over it. This is marriage. This is–

Wyatt: I’m not surprised. God, she’s gotta be relieved.

Liam: You have no idea.

Wyatt: Well look, now I don’t have to worry about you or dad. Or even my mom, for that matter. Just seems like everyone is right where they belong.

Liam: I mean, yeah, I heard about that. So, your mom and eric are back together.

Wyatt: Yeah. You sound surprised.

Liam: No–I just. Well, maybe. Listen, if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. Right?

Wyatt: Okay, now you sound skeptical. Why?

Liam: I’m not skeptical, it’s just– okay, maybe a little bit. He was about to throw her out, right? Like they were gonna sign divorce papers and now everything’s totally fine. And I think we’re all a little–a little skeptical.

Katie: I don’t think she’s talking about a new man.

Brooke: Somebody you’ve had your eye on for a while?

Donna: Well, you know, it’s not like somebody I’m actively pursuing or anything, but I’d give it another go.

Brooke: I know you have a history with justin, but you know what he did to bill.

Katie: Oh, I don’t think she’s talking about justin but you might be on the right track when it comes to ex-husbands.

Brooke: Oh, you’re talking about eric.

Donna: The one man I should have never let get away.

Carter: You want me to stay?

Eric: Yes. Yes, I do.

Carter: But you have such a lovely evening planned, just the two of you.

Eric: We did. And we had a wonderful evening. Absolutely. It was wonderful. It was very romantic with my lovely quinn. But now I think my evening’s over.

Quinn: It is?

Eric: Yeah. But I don’t think it’s over for my wife yet. I think this evening has just begun for her. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Katie: I can understand why part of you has never been able to let eric go.

Donna: But I have. I mean, you know, for the most part. It’s not like I’m pining away for him or anything.

Brooke: How many dates have you been on recently?

Donna: Recently as in–

Katie: As in the last month?

Donna: I mean, I don’t– look, I said my life has been pretty boring lately.

Katie: Okay. How many dates have you been on in the last year?

Donna: I don’t know. Look, guys, it’s not like I go on those apps anymore. It’s just–so disappointing, you know? I mean nobody ever comes close.

Brooke: To eric.

Donna: Yeah. I don’t know. I guess I was just spoiled. You know, like–

[ Sighing ] He always just made me feel so important. So wanted. So desired.

[ Sighing ] You know, my honey bear couldn’t get enough of me.

Brooke: Yeah, it’s true. I’ll never believe eric can feel for quinn what he felt for you.

Donna: That’s sweet of you to say.

Brooke: Well, you lit a fire under him. You did. And with her, I don’t see a fire, do you?

Katie: With eric and quinn? I don’t even see smoke.

[ Chuckling ]

Liam: You know, I’m not trying to diss your mom.

Wyatt: No. Look, I get it, alright? My mother has made some very interesting choices in her life and well, she’s lucky that eric has been so forgiving.

Liam: Yeah, she is. She is. I gotta say, it was pretty bad, even for quinn though, you know, hooking up with carter.

Wyatt: I know. I know. It’s ridge’s best friend. The person that eric trusts the most at forrester. It’s just–my mom is so often her own worst enemy.

Liam: But, listen. I–I thought it was over. Right? I thought eric would just walk away and look where we are.

Wyatt: Yeah, people have been doubting their relationship for years. I mean, hell, I’m guilty of that too. But this, I think it finally proves, you know, eric forgiving my mom, it shows how deep his feelings run for her and how important that relationship is for him. I think eric could do just about anything for my mom.

Quinn: I–I’m so confused. I thought you were having as much fun tonight as I was.

Eric: I was. There’s nobody in the world I’d rather spend time with than you.

Quinn: Except for carter because you invited him to join us. Why? Why are you being so mysterious?

Eric: I don’t mean to be mysterious. It’s not a game to me at all. This is a very serious matter.

Quinn: What is?

Eric: Your needs.

Quinn: My needs?

Eric: Your needs that I can’t fulfill.

Quinn: Eric, I told you. You fulfill me.

Eric: I do. I know. In so many ways. And I’m grateful for that. But there are ways that I can’t fulfill you. And that’s what I’m talking about. I can’t ask you to sacrifice that part of your life. I can be your loving husband. I can be an attentive partner to you, but at the same time, I can’t– I don’t have to spell it out for you, do I? I know how the two of you feel about each other. I do. I know there’s no need for us to hide that. I’m totally aware of it. I think that we should encourage that.

Quinn: Encourage it?

Eric: Look, I told you… my sex life is over. Yours doesn’t have to be. Does your vitamin c last twenty-four hours?

Brooke: I really thought eric would be rid of quinn, once and for all. Especially after this thing with carter.

Katie: I thought his eyes had been opened there for a while.

Brooke: He’s just too forgiving.

Donna: I think it’s just because he’s so loyal. To a fault. I mean how else would you explain these relationships? I know I’m the one who messed up ours. And believe me, I would never ever again, given the chance.

Brooke: Oh, so there might be a chance? Does he know that this could be an option?

Donna: Oh, no, no, no please. Don’t even go there. I am not throwing myself at a married man.

Katie: Even though everyone knows that you would be better for him?

Donna: I–I respect his choices. His commitment.

Brooke: Honey, I am not asking you to sabotage his marriage. Quinn will do that all on her own. I’m just saying, let eric know that you’ll be there for him if and when she does.

Liam: Hey, listen, maybe I’m wrong to be skeptical, because clearly eric has shown how much he cares about her and even if it was surprising that he took her back. There was no doubt that he loves her.

Wyatt: There’s no doubt at all. And it goes both ways too. Mom loves him. She feels terrible about what she did. The last thing she wants to do is hurt eric.

Liam: Right, but that does raise the question, why would she put her marriage in jeopardy in the first place?

Wyatt: I don’t know. I mean, I’m not sure of all the details, nor do I want to know them but to my understanding, she was a bit starved, shall we say, when it came to affection.

[ Clears throat ] Issues in the bedroom.

Liam: Oh, right. Okay, yikes.

Wyatt: Look, eric got really ticked off that my mom was trying to break up ridge and brooke and I think it just made him lose interest. Thankfully, that’s all behind them now, all right? Or, at least, I hope so.

Eric: Look, this isn’t easy. I wanna do what’s best. I wanna do what’s best.

Quinn: Look, you wanna have a discussion about what’s best for me? Fine. Let’s do it. But alone, without carter present.

Carter: Agreed. You two should talk.

Eric: No, you don’t go anywhere. Not until you hear me out.

Quinn: No. There is nothing else to be heard here. This is not happening. I’m not gonna jump in bed with another man because you aren’t able to–

Eric: This man. This man. This man you turned to when I wasn’t able to–

Quinn: Okay, but we almost got a divorce over that, remember?

Eric: I’m doing the best I can. I don’t like this. I don’t like that I can’t fulfill you.

Quinn: Eric.

Eric: I can’t do the things for you that a younger man can. This man.

Brooke: Honestly, I’m not rooting for that marriage to end.

Katie: Yes you are.

Brooke: I’m not. Not if he truly wants to be with quinn. Do I want him with quinn? No. Absolutely not. But eric feels differently.

Katie: I guess if we don’t see the fire and passion, eric does and that’s all that matters. I just hope quinn realizes how lucky she is because I don’t think there’s another man out there that would have such a forgiving heart. Or such an enormous capacity to love.

Liam: Alright, so, you know, carter’s just coming off a difficult breakup, your mom is not feeling very…attended to.

Wyatt: Yes, yes.

Liam: Listen, I’m just saying it’s a little easier to understand why they did what they did.

Wyatt: I know– and I’m not trying to justify what they did. But yeah, they– they started confiding in each other and spending time together and connecting.

Liam: You and I both know you can’t just turn that off.

Wyatt: I know. But they have to. They have to because eric has taken her back. He’s forgiven them both. And all of them work at forrester together. It’s complicated. I don’t know. I don’t know how they did it, but it does seem like they have figured out a way, the three of them, to just make the relationship work.

Carter: Eric, to even suggest this, it shows how deeply you love quinn. I respect you so much now. And I feel for you. That being said, you can’t just decide that quinn and I should sleep together. You’re my boss and I take orders from you at the office but in life, I’m my own man. And I’m not going to fall in bed with quinn because you deemed it’s okay. Now I get it. I get that you’re frustrated and I would be too if I was in your shoes but it is wrong to ask me to be some sort of– some stand-in for you.

Eric: I don’t think so. Not given how you two feel about each other.

Quinn: Okay, hey. I know– I know you mean well. You’re trying to do what you think is right for me but… we’re married.

Eric: We were married when you turned to carter in the first place. It doesn’t need to be behind my back anymore. I want there to be some approval here.

Quinn: It’s approval for something that we’re not even asking for. I’m committed to you. I am committed to our marriage. I– I told you that you’re not alone in this. I am going to stay by your side.

Eric: Thank god. I want you to. I want that more than anything. But I don’t want you to have to give up anything to do that. I don’t want you to make that kind of a sacrifice.

Quinn: I don’t feel like it’s a sacrifice. I’m willing to give it up.

Eric: I don’t want you to.

Quinn: For you! I’m willing to give up anything to be with you.

Eric: I don’t want you to give up anything. I don’t want you to. I don’t want you to give up how sensual you are, how sexual you are. I don’t want you to have to give that up. How long have we been married? And I have benefited so much from your sensuality. It’s what drew me into you in the first place. But things have changed. They have. If you were my age, if you were closer to my age, maybe they wouldn’t have changed so much. Maybe I wouldn’t feel like I was robbing you of anything.

Quinn: Come on, you knew what our age difference was when we got together in the first place.

Eric: Well, I was able to keep up with you, wasn’t I? But not anymore. Not anymore. I know how she feels about me. And I know how she feels about you. We’re all adults here. It’s okay. The night is yours if you want it.

[ Knock on door ]

Adam: Hey, stephanie, can you send me the ad rate projections for the first quarter, please?

Sharon: [ High-pitched voice ] Sure, mr. Newman!

[ Laughs ] I’m sorry. Do you have a minute?

Adam: Uh, sure. But you are the last person that I expected to see here.

Sharon: Um, I just felt like I, uh, had to come by and apologize.

Adam: No, no, you don’T.

Sharon: Well, I mean, you — you came to crimson lights asking for advice about connor, and I just feel like I handled that badly and I’m sorry.

Adam: Sharon, after everything that we’ve been through, you never have to apologize to me.

Sharon: Thank you.

Adam: As a matter of fact, I am the one that is sorry. I told you that I was gonna give you and rey some space, and then I turned around and I broke my word.

Sharon: Mariah was pretty upset when she saw you.

Adam: She’s never had much use for me…because she’s rightfully protective of you. And everything she’s been through, she’s combustible. She lashed out. And, honestly, uh, I probably had it coming.

Sharon: It was a tense situation.

Adam: Look, I — I put you in a difficult spot.

Sharon: Well, still, you came to the coffeehouse and you needed my help and I wasn’t there for you. But I am now.

Adam: [ Chuckles ]

Ashland: There you are.

Victoria: Oh, thank you. You’re smart, you’re handsome, and you know how I like my coffee. You are a triple threat.

Ashland: I aim to please. How’s your schedule this morning?

Victoria: It’s pretty clear, but I do have a breakfast meeting with mom.

Ashland: Newman enterprises official business?

Victoria: Yep, and some wedding details. How about your schedule?

Ashland: I have to review some newman media paperwork. And then I have a very important call with harrison.

Victoria: Oh, that’s gonna be so nice. Just remember — it’s okay to rest.

Ashland: I feel great.

Victoria: Well, I know that, but the chemo is still taking a toll on you, even though you won’t admit it. Have you been taking those supplements that nate gave you?

Ashland: Yes. I think that’s one of the reasons why I feel so good. Oh, and I must have that chemo brain people talk about. Uh, I forgot to tell you something last night. I hope you don’t mind, but i took it upon myself to make a decision on our behalf.

Elena: Thank you.

Nate: Mm-hmm.

Elena: That should definitely hit the spot.

Nate: It has been a minute since I slept in that late.

Elena: Well, we deserved it. And we needed it after all that strenuous activity last night.

Nate: Mmm. I could have stayed in bed all morning long.

Elena: Well, I mean, there’s still time. We could always go back upstairs and cuddle up under the covers.

Nate: Hmm. Very tempting. But we both have things to do today.

Elena: [ Sighs ] You’re right. So I guess that makes this the official end to our date. It was nice while it lasted.

Nate: Mm.

Elena: And must say, I really enjoyed having dinner with victoria and ashland.

Nate: You know, I did, too. It was a good meal, good conversation. And not only did we get an invitation to the wedding of the year, but…

Elena: Ashland asked you to be his best man.

Nate: Yeah.

Elena: [ Laughs ]

Nate: How did that happen?

Elena: I don’t know. I certainly didn’t see it coming. But how do you feel about the request now?

Nate: In the cold light of day, you mean? Still doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve only had, like, a handful of encounters with ashland, one right here after his chemo treatment. So it seems kind of weird. You know, wouldn’t you want an actual friend to be your best man, not someone you just met? I mean, I’m honored, but… why me?

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Lily: Hey. You ready to go?

Billy: Go where?

Lily: To the office.

Billy: Yeah. Is it that time already?

Lily: You’ve been staring at your phone all morning. What are you doing?

Billy: Waiting for one of our investigative journalists to get back to me.

Lily: About the ashland locke story?

Billy: Yes. I’m looking for information on the woman that became locke’s mentor. I’m still trying to figure out how he was able to buy those two news stations that launched his career.

Lily: Right. Also known as the investigation causing a rift between you and victoria. So, has our team found anything new yet?

Billy: No, nothing new, no new information on locke during that chapter of his life, which, to me, is incredibly suspicious. But I did learn something even more disturbing than that.

Find your rhythm.

Adam: I’m glad that you changed your mind because I need your advice. You’re the only one that I can talk to about this.

Sharon: Well, I don’t know if that’s true.

Adam: Not only do I value your professional opinion, but nobody understands the dynamics better than you. You know my history with chelsea. You care about connor. You’ve worked with him as a therapist in the past.

Sharon: Look, before we get into how you should talk to connor about your current relationship with chelsea, um, I have a few question for you.

Adam: Alright.

Sharon: Um… are you and chelsea on the same page about what your future will look like?

Adam: What do you mean?

Sharon: Like, do you two have the same expectations, you know? Or does one of you hold out hope for a reconciliation and the other one doesn’t? I mean, have you guys talked about that?

Adam: Um…not exactly.

Sharon: Well, how do you expect that you’re gonna co-parent connor? I mean, you need to have all of these specifics worked out.

Adam: I know. I know. I understand. Yeah.

Sharon: And I think that you need to have those answers before you talk to connor because he’s gonna have all these same questions and he’s especially gonna want to know if there’s any hope that his family might be together again one day. And you need to be prepared for that. So…is it really truly over between you and chelsea?

Elena: I understand why you’re thrown, but I actually don’t think that ashland’s request is all that strange.

Nate: Really? What’s your take on it?

Elena: Well, I mean, he just went through a divorce and he moved. He might not be comfortable asking his close friends who knew his ex-wife, you know? It’s awkward.

Nate: Yeah, that does make some sense. And he did mention that most of his friends were business associates.

Elena: Yeah, and he may not want to ask any of them to be a part of his wedding with victoria. Maybe he wants to choose someone who has a connection to her and her family. Maybe it’s like a symbolic gesture of new beginnings.

Nate: New beginning for a man who may not have a lot of time left.

Elena: Well, he certainly likes you. And he’s very appreciative of how you went above and beyond to help him the other day. I mean, he’s not even your patient, and you showed him compassion and you treated him like a human being and not like some big-shot billionaire.

Nate: And dealing with cancer helps people cut through the noise. I think ashland’s that type.

Elena: Right. So, now that we’ve talked it through, what do you say? Are you gonna be his best man?

Victoria: I love that you invited nate and elena to the wedding. I mean, nate’s — he’s an old friend. And elena — the more I get to know her, the more I like her. I didn’t realize we had so much in common.

Ashland: I’m so glad to hear you say that because there’s more. I even surprised myself with this one, and it came up spontaneously, but I asked nate to be in the wedding party… as my best man.

Victoria: Oh.

[ Chuckles ] Okay.

Ashland: I wanted somebody that mattered to both of us going forward and not someone from my past.

Victoria: Well, I guess nate qualifies.

Ashland: Indeed he does. I was thinking of asking victor, but, uh, he’s walking you down the aisle, I’m assuming. Jack abbott — well, that’s a complicated dynamic. And of course there’s always billy.

Victoria: What?!

Ashland: [ Chuckles ] I’m kidding.

Victoria: Oh, good. I thought you were serious.

Ashland: Well, nate hasn’t given me an answer yet because i kind of caught him off guard. I’m glad he’s taking his time thinking about it, probably more than I did. But it struck me last night that, uh, it’s good to have someone like him by my side, you know? Maybe that sounds crazy, but…

Victoria: No, not at all. I understand exactly why you did what you did.

Billy: I asked our team to dive deeper into ashland’s past. I want to know everything, starting from the beginning. And they haven’t been able to find anything, so you know what that means.

Lily: That we need better investigative reporters?

Billy: No. It means his history’s been scrubbed.

Lily: So, what, you think that ashland’s hiding something?

Billy: “Think”? I know he is. How do you not know any information on the guy?

Lily: Like what?

Billy: Well, like where he was born, for instance, or the truth of what happened to his parents.

Lily: I thought they died when he was young.

Billy: Exactly. Every article on him talks about his parents, mary and ian locke, died when he was a teenager, but there’s no death certificates to prove that.

Lily: Okay, well, there could be a reasonable explanation for that.

Billy: Okay, what if I told you we can’t find a birth certificate for locke, either? It’s as if he and his family never existed.

Dayquil severe for you…

Adam: Whenever chelsea and i once had is now over. I’ve been very clear with her about that.

Sharon: And you guys have talked that out, you’re on the same page, or you don’t know?

Adam: We’ve had conversations, but I don’t recall that I’ve gotten a definitive answer from her. And, um…

Sharon: And what?

Adam: There have been times when I get the feeling that she’s let go of a lot of her anger towards me and that she would be willing to give things another chance.

Sharon: Well, that does make sense, given your history. You two have overcome some huge obstacles together, and you managed to forgive each other.

Adam: But it’s different now. At least, it is for me. Too much damage has been done. But the thing that has not changed is our commitment to connor. We both want to do what’s right by him.

Sharon: Well, then I think you need to talk to connor sooner rather than later. You need to sit down with him, you and chelsea, and have a family conversation. You need to let him know that his parents are separating.

Adam: I get where you’re coming from, but I don’t think chelsea and I are gonna be able to do that anytime soon.

Sharon: Why not?

Adam: Because I don’t know when she’s going to return from anita’S. I mean, what if she’s gone for months?

Sharon: The longer you put this off, the more questions he’s gonna have.

Adam: You’re right. But it’s just — it seems too important to do this on a video call.

Sharon: No, this absolutely needs to be done in person.

Adam: And I think it’s clear that I need to do this now. And I need to do it on my own.

Nate: I like ashland, you know? He’s smart, witty. And there’s no pretense with him.

Elena: You can respect that.

Nate: It’s a big deal to be asked to play the role like best man in someone’s big day. I’m not quite ready to say yes.

Elena: Hmm. So, if you say “no,” does that mean we’re not going to tuscany for the wedding?

Nate: Oh, we’re definitely going to that wedding.

[ Chuckles ] I can’t pass up a reason to go to italy. You know, last time I was there, they ran out of pasta.

Elena: What?

Nate: It’s true! I ate all the pasta in the whole country.

[ Both laugh ] The spaghetti, rigatoni, linguini, all of it.

Elena: I see. So we have to go back to see if they made more.

Nate: Hmm! But, you know, victoria and ashland, you know, seem to be very much in love. I’m happy to support them and celebrate them. Plus, I get a chance to spend some time with you in the most romantic place on earth.

Elena: I feel the same way.

Billy: You have to admit is is suspicious that there’s no record of locke’s birth or his family.

Lily: Yeah, sure, I’ll admit it. It’s intriguing.

Billy: “Intriguing”? Come on. It’s more than that. Look, think about victor, for instance. Not that I want to mention his name, but he is a business icon, much like locke.

Lily: Yeah, sure, they have similar backgrounds.

Billy: They do, don’t they? And that’s my point. Victor has been talking about his story for decades, about how he was an orphan that rose to the top. Those are the details that people want to hear. That’s what builds the legend. So why would locke not talk about that part of his life?

Lily: Maybe he’s a private person. Maybe he’s not close with his parents. Or maybe the death of his parents is painful for him.

Billy: Okay, then how do you explain the no death or birth certificate?

Lily: Because documents weren’t digitized back then. It’s very easy they could have been lost. It doesn’t prove a cover-up.

Billy: It’s more than that, lily. I mean, there’s no information about his school days, no family anecdotes, nothing.

Lily: Well, given how many lives he’s wrecked, do you find it that surprising that nobody wants to talk about him on the record?

Billy: Why are you fighting me on this? Do you really want me to give this investigation up that badly?

Lily: No. I just want you to have facts before you jump to conclusions ’cause it’s very possible this road could lead to nowhere.

Billy: Yeah. Well, maybe you’re right. You very well could be right.

Victoria: Asking nate to be your best man actually makes a lot of sense. We’re both people who are focused on work and family. It doesn’t leave time for much else.

Ashland: Yeah, like long-lasting friendships.

Victoria: Exactly.

Ashland: I moved my entire life here to genoa city, yet i don’t miss anyone that I used to socialize with back in new york. All of my so-called relationships were developed around networking purposes.

Victoria: I can understand that.

Ashland: Well, tara introduced me to some of her friends.

[ Clears throat ] We didn’t have much in common. She loved summering in the hamptons and going to all the galas, but I’ve always enjoyed being somewhat of a loner. And that was true before locke communications group. Once I developed a reputation — well, you know what it’s like to be in a powerful position.

Victoria: I do. I mean, most new acquaintances either defer to you or they ask you for something.

Ashland: And nate did neither one of those things. You know, when I was at my most vulnerable, struggling after chemo, he came to my aid. And he reminded me that I still had some power over the disease, how I treat it, how I include loved ones. Those were my choices.

Victoria: Agreed.

Ashland: Those ideas had a very strong impression on me. And it speaks to nate’s integrity. And he tells a damn good story.

Victoria: [ Laughs ]

Ashland: So I’d like to call nate my friend and have him stand with me when we get married.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Victoria: Who could that be?

Ashland: Not who. What. And it’s for you.

I may have moderate to

severe rheumatoid arthritis.

Billy: So, let me get this straight. What you’re saying is I can’t be patient.

Lily: Of course not. You’ve been checking your phone all morning. Oh! Hi, guys.

Nate: Hey!

Elena: Hey.

Billy: Well, if it isn’t our new star.

Lily: Yeah, having coffee with our previous star.

[ Laughter ] How are you both?

Nate: We’re good.

Billy: Uh, elena, lily told me about your new ideas to revamp askmdnow. I am super psyched.

Elena: Me too. So excited.

Nate: You can go ahead and say it, billy.

Billy: Say what?

Nate: That elena’s gonna be so good at her new job, everyone’s gonna forget about little old me.

Elena: Ohh.

Billy: Well, that is the plan. We want everyone saying, “nate who?” After her first week.

Lily: I mean, clearly we made the right choice, right? But I will miss seeing you around.

Nate: I’m sure you’ll still pencil me into your busy schedule.

Lily: Yeah, of course. Let’s do that dinner that we all talked about at the launch party.

Elena: Yeah, when are we gonna do that?

Lily: Uh, soon. Let’s just look at our schedules, and we can go somewhere. Or come over. We’ll make you dinner.

Billy: Yeah, that sounds great.

Elena: Sounds perfect. We are so popular lately.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Lily: What do you mean?

Elena: Oh, uh, we just had dinner with victoria and ashland last night.

Billy: Really? How’d that come about?

Nate: Well, ashland wants to help out with the new surgical wing at memorial.

Elena: And that’s how it started, but it ended up being a really good night. We talked about the wedding. It’s gonna be amazing.

Billy: Is that right? I’m sure it’s gonna be a big to-do. Any details you want to share?

Ashland: I have been waiting for this. What a perfect time for it to arrive.

Victoria: What is it?

Ashland: Well, consider it a combination congratulatory merger gift and an early wedding present.

Victoria: That is so sweet of you, but you shouldn’t have gotten me anything.

Ashland: Oh, you need this.

Victoria: Okay, well, now I’m very curious.

Ashland: Well, see for yourself. I know that your father’s portrait hovered over the ceo’s office for many years.

Victoria: Yes, it’s — it’s in the boardroom now.

Ashland: I thought it was time that it was replaced. This painting should take its rightful spot in your office to exemplify the changing of the guard.

Victoria: I love it. It’s just beautiful. I — I don’t know what to say.

[ Sighs ] I-is this a londeree? A meryl londeree?

Ashland: Indeed it is.

Victoria: How did you get her to do it?

Ashland: It wasn’t easy to convince her, but you deserve it. There is nothing I won’t do to prove my love for you.

Victoria: You already have, again and again.

Sharon: If you feel compelled to talk to connor on your own, then I think you need to speak with chelsea first. I mean, you don’t want her to be caught off guard after the fact. And that way she’ll be in the right headspace for when she talks to connor.

Adam: Agreed. It’s just… it’s going to be a difficult conversation. I’m a little wary.

Sharon: You can’t avoid it.

Adam: If she’s holding on to any hope that we can reconcile, if I take away that possibility, who knows how she’s gonna react, sharon?

Sharon: It’s gonna be painful. So just speak to her with respect and a lot of empathy for what she’s going through. You know, that’ll go a long way towards easing the pain.

Adam: I’ll try my best.

Sharon: Maybe it’s a good thing that she’s staying with her mother right now. That way, she’ll have some help if this does hit her hard.

Adam: I don’t know if anita is the best influence on her.

Sharon: Do you think anita would promise chelsea to heal her wounds by, like, running a con?

Adam: Something like that. I don’t know. Maybe I’m worried over nothing. Maybe I’m wrong about the vibe I’ve been getting from chelsea. But it is possible that she still despises me and she’s just being civil for connor’s sake. And in that case, if I do tell her that I intend to tell him on my own, it could provoke a huge negative response, maybe even set back her treatment.

Sharon: Well, maybe you should contact her therapist and let them know what’s going on. And then that way they can be prepared in case she needs that extra support.

Adam: I think she would think that’s a violation of her privacy.

Sharon: True. Well, I guess you’ll have to play that by ear. But it’s really crucial that you handle this right. You know, you’re setting up the foundation for how the two of you are gonna move forward as parents, and that’s what’s most important for connor.

Adam: You’re 100% right, sharon. I’m gonna do everything that you suggested.

Sharon: I’m glad that I came to talk to you about this.

Adam: I knew you would be the one person to steer me in the right direction. You always have been. – Bedtime!! – Bedtime.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Adam: How do I frame this with connor? I get the sense that he knows something is wrong between chelsea and me, so it might not come as a total shock.

Sharon: Maybe that’s a good thing.

Adam: Still, I just think it’s gonna be heartbreaking for him.

Sharon: Just use clear and simple words and be open, you know? Be honest. Be respectful of chelsea, but be understanding of how hard this is for connor. You know, what he really needs to know is that his parents still love him and that’s never gonna change.

Adam: Thank you, sharon. That’s exactly what I needed to hear.

Sharon: You can do this. I know you can.

Adam: It’s nice to know that still believe in me.

Sally: I have some numbers on a prospective budget that — sorry. I didn’t know you were with someone.

Nikki: Grazie mille. Ciao.

Victoria: Hi.

Nikki: Hi!

Victoria: How are things in italy?

Nikki: Oh, fantastico.

Victoria: [ Laughs ]

Nikki: The staff at the palazzo are very busy getting ready for our arrival. I just talked to the coordinator — francesca. Everything’s coming together.

Victoria: Thank you, mom. I don’t know what I’d do without you handling all the details.

Nikki: Darling, it’s my pleasure. You know I love doing this stuff. And I just want everything to be perfect for you and ashland. How is he doing?

Victoria: He’s good.

Nikki: Well, I’m happy to hear that. I was worried when you didn’t make it to the launch party.

Victoria: Oh, yes, well, that was a tough day. But he’s doing much better now. He seems to be handling the treatment very well.

Nikki: And how are you coping?

Victoria: I’m fine. I’m choosing to believe that the chemo is doing what it’s supposed to do and fighting the cancer in his body so that we can have more time together. In the meantime, we’re just making every minute count.

Nikki: I’m sure that you are.

Nate: I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to share what victoria and ashland told us about their wedding.

Elena: Yeah, especially with victoria’s ex, who has a vested interest in publishing stories about her fiancé.

Billy: Okay. I get it. Didn’t mean to make you feel uncomfortable. Of course, none of this would be on the record. Whatever we talk about, I would not share publicly.

Elena: It’s fine. We don’t have any details anyway.

Lily: Yeah, and if you’re so curious, just ask victoria.

Billy: Maybe I will.

Lily: Yeah, I think you should ’cause I think even if elena and nate know more, victoria wouldn’t want them to share it with anyone.

Elena: Yeah. And who knows? We might have to sign a non-disclosure agreement to even attend this elaborate wedding. I don’t know. I’ve never been to an event where we might actually have to dodge paparazzi.

Lily: Wait, you were invited to the wedding in italy?

Elena: Yeah.

Lily: Wow, that’s gonna be a great trip for you guys.

Billy: Who invited you? Victoria or ashland?

Lily: Well, I’m sure victoria. I mean, her and nate go way back.

Elena: No, it was actually ashland. He and nate really hit it off.

Billy: Is that right?

Nate: Yeah. I like the guy.

Elena: They seem to be building a real friendship, which I am totally in support of because all you do is spend time at the hospital and with me.

Nate: Oh, come on. I can never spend too much time with you.

Lily: Aww, well, that’s good ’cause you’ll be going to italy together.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: That looks like our order. I’ll get it.

Lily: Oh, I’ll join you. Uh, I’m really glad that you stopped fishing for details. And, plus, I don’t think elena and nate know anything.

Billy: Are you kidding me? Did you hear what he said? Something’s not right. (Dog vo) mmmm, this beneful grain free…

Billy: You two out of here?

Nate: Yeah. It’s about that time.

Lily: Aww, it’s good to see you guys. And let’s do our dinner.

Elena: Absolutely.

Lily: Yeah. Okay.

Elena: Bye.

Billy: See ya.

Lily: Bye. There is nothing wrong with what nate and elena said.

Billy: Nate and ashland becoming best friends? It doesn’t raise a red flag for you?

Lily: Okay, I think you’re exaggerating.

Billy: Okay. Maybe. But ashland’s donating to the hospital. They’re having dinner together. Now, out of the blue, they’re invited to the wedding?

Lily: Maybe because nate’s a really great guy? Maybe because ashland’s getting treatment at the hospital that nate works at? I mean, it’s not like he has to be on a budget and not invite too many people.

Billy: No, that’s true. He can afford whoever he wants to be there. But it’s still a destination wedding. You’re still flying halfway around the world to get there. You’re still taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with him and the newmans.

Lily: Yeah, it’s a dream vacation. It’s not an obligation.

Billy: Yeah, and I’m sure that’s exactly how ashland sold it to him, which is also weird. He’s built his career off being intimidating and aloof. Now all of a sudden he’s mr. Charming to people he barely knows?

Lily: Okay, they are doctors. They’re not moguls. He doesn’t have to worry about them screwing him over on a business deal. And, besides, everyone has said that ashland has changed since his diagnosis.

Billy: That’s what he wants everyone to believe.

Lily: Okay, why can’t you take anything that ashland does at face value? Like, what if he wants to expand his social circle?

Billy: Men like ashland don’t do that. They don’t seek friendships unless there’s something that they’re looking to get out of it.

Victoria: It was just so beautiful and so thoughtful.

Nikki: I didn’t realize that artist was still painting portraits.

Victoria: Well, neither did I, but ashland found a way to make it work.

Nikki: What a wonderful gift.

Victoria: I know. It just demonstrates how — how well he knows me in such a short amount of time. He recognizes how much being ceo of newman enterprises means to me. You know, mom, I’ve been wanting to replace dad’s picture for some time, but I want you to know it’s not a slight against him, of course.

Nikki: Oh, no. I understand.

Victoria: I just would like to step out of his shadow and shine on my own.

Nikki: My darling, you have always shone, but I’m happy to hear that ashland sees that as clearly as your father and I do.

Victoria: The connection that ashland and I have — it’s like he sees me for who I am. I am painfully aware of everything hanging in the balance, and I try not to think about how quickly time is slipping away. But the closer we get to the wedding, the more I wonder — what if the worst happens? What if I lose this man that i love before we’ve even barely begun our lives together? What — what will I do then, mom?

Sally: [ Sighs ] I can’t believe I did that. I apologize. I didn’t mean to interrupt. I just had something important to discuss.

Adam: Uh, sharon and I are discussing something important, as well. So, can you come back later?

Sally: No worries. It was a private matter anyway.

Sharon: Um, it’s fine. I think we covered everything. I should get going.

Adam: Thank you, sharon. You’re a life-saver.

Sally: Bye! Is it just me, or did it get a little chilly in here? Look, I’m — really, I’m sorry for interrupting —

Adam: No, you’re not.

Sally: What?

Adam: I saw you outside the door listening to our conversation before you burst in here.

Sally: No, I — I didn’t mean to —

Adam: Regardless of what you intended, I don’t find that behavior the least bit amusing. Sharon and I — we were talking about my son. And when it comes to my kid, i just don’t appreciate people playing games. Front loader odor.

Sally: I-I’m really sorry. And I mean that this time. I — I came to the door, and i stopped when I saw the two of you. I didn’t really hear anything, but it was foolish and immature of me, and I’m sorry, adam. The truth is…[Sighs] I know that we’re trying to keep things professional between us, but… I got jealous.

Adam: Of sharon?

Sally: Well, you two have a history. But I know that that is none of my business, and whenever the green-eyed monster takes over, I make bad decisions. But I promise I will do better about trying to squash the beast if he ever makes another appearance. Your past, present, and future relationships with sharon are none of my business.

Adam: That’s right.

Sally: So, we’re good then?

Adam: We’re good. Now, did you actually have news about the budget, or was that just a cover story?

Sally: I will e-mail you because I’ve already taken up enough of your time. Get to work.

Adam: Okay, boss. Hey, will you, um, shut the door on your way out, please?

Sally: Gotcha.

Adam: Hey. It’s me. We need to have a discussion about the future, chelsea, and about our son.

Nikki: This has been my concern the whole time. The whole family is worried. I mean, not that you and ashland won’t be happy together, but that, depending on how his illness progresses, it could cut your time together short. And then your heart will be broken. You’ve been so strong through all of this, and I really admire that. But it’s okay to have some fears. And, really, it’s not too late to admit that this engagement has been very abrupt.

Victoria: Are you saying that I should back out of the wedding now?

Lily: I don’t think it’s a red flag that nate and ashland are friends.

Billy: Well, we’ll find out soon enough who’s right or wrong. But I just got more information from our investigative journalist.

Lily: Did they find something out?

Billy: Nope, nothing. Another dead end, which, to me, is very suspicious. It’s almost as if ashland didn’t exist until he met the woman that later became his mentor.

Lily: And once again, there could be a reason for that.

Billy: I really don’t see how it’s possible for anyone in this day and age to basically have no record of the first 20 years of their life, unless they are deliberately hiding it. Or maybe he’s destroyed those records.

Lily: Right, another hypothesis with nothing to back it up.

Billy: Yeah. Believe me. It’s frustrating as hell.

Lily: You’re not the only one here who is frustrated. You need to look at why this matters so much to you.Who cares if ashland is hiding where he came from?

Billy: Who cares? If that’s true, the man is a lie. Everything he’s done in his life is a lie, his whole entire empire. That is a big story, a story that people want to hear. Most importantly, victoria deserves to know that. I don’t need any more motivation than that.

[ Cellphone pings ]

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Victoria: I asked you if there were any secrets that i needed to know, and you said no.

Ashland: This was something that I’d hoped you’d never need to know.

Mariah: I am terrified.

Tessa: Of stitch?

Mariah: Everybody keeps reassuring me that he’s not coming back, that they’ve beefed up security around here, and that he wouldn’t risk it, but what if he does?

Nick: Do phyllis and I seem like a good fit to you?

maxie, it’s okay, I totally understand. You told me not to bother you anymore, and I won’T. No, no, it’s no bother. I — I was wondering if you would like to attend the wedding of the century. And by that, I, of course, mean the wedding of carly corinthos and jason morgan. I actually am planning most of it, and it’s coming out really nice, if I do say so myself. Weddings are just not my thing. Oh. Okay. Um, a-are you sure? ‘Cause you could be my plus-one. Curtis: We need some help here. Brook lynn: Oh, my god. Austin: Can you get that gurney? Hold on one second.

[ Coughing ] Here, you can set her down right here. Jordan, you alright? Can you tell me what happened? Yeah. She got locked in a basement with a gas leak. Uh-huh. Jordan, can you hear me? Jordan? Let’s get her in cubicle 2. Are you okay?

[ Clears throat ] I, um — I think I need to sit down. Um —

[ Coughing ] Um, actually, could you do me a favor a-and go to the desk and tell the attending that I was exposed to a gas leak and I need to be examined? On it, yeah. Thank you. Um, is there anyone that I could call for you? Um, no. No, no, thank you. I, uh… I don’t want my daughter to worry. Okay, um, speaking as someone’s daughter, I would want to know what’s going on. Sorry I’m late. I walked straight into the paint cans you left in the hall. Bruise on my leg’s going to be there for days. How’s that going to look at carly’s wedding? Sasha and I wanted to discuss that with you. You know what else? Can you put that box with the changing table in your room? Every time I walk in my bedroom, it’s right in the way. Well, the baby takes first priority, and I’m trying to get the nursery ready. Well, is that why you invited me to lunch? To find out when I’m getting my own apartment? Sasha’s about to have the baby, and I need your room. And I already told you, the baby can share your room. It’ll be too young to appreciate some fancy nursery. Plus, I don’t want to let you be all on your lonesome at the apartment. Well, I’m not going to be lonely when sasha decides to move in with me. Jason and carly are getting married tonight? Yes. They want to present a united front to their business associates. Well, don’t you see, jax? If they get married, then everything’s going to be okay, because there’s not going to be a hole for sonny to fill. There’s no life waiting for him. If carly and jason get married, then sonny, he can stay dead. And mike and i can have a future. All you have to do is walk away. Please, I’m begging you. Phyllis: Mike? Looks like we had the same idea. You need some peace and quiet as much as I do. Have you seen nina? No. Why? Is everything alright? What happened?

[ Chuckles ] Well, uh, for one thing, uh, I told nina that I loved her.

[ Chuckles ] Oh! Eh? Buscema: Ms. Wu. Mr. Novak. Thank you for meeting with me. Why are we here? The plan is set. Unless something’s changed. Ms. Wu: We already agreed the best time to hit that warehouse is tonight, while mrs. Corinthos and mr. Morgan is distracted by the wedding. The plans haven’t changed. But I have a message from cyrus renault. I wouldn’t mind doing that again.

[ Monitor beeping ] How’s jordan? Mask back on, please. In a minute. Doctors always make the worst patients. I was, um, trapped in that basement with jordan. And I, um, performed chest compressions and monitored her breathing all the way to the hospital. It would really help me to know how she’s doing. Put the mask on, and I’ll check on commissioner ashford’s condition. Deal? Okay. Thank you for the coffee, but I really don’t think it’s going to calm me down. Oh, this isn’t about calming you down. This is about staying alert while we wait. Yeah, but we’re not family. They’re not going to give us any information on dr. Robinson’s or commissioner ashford’s condition. Look, I am concerned about them, but we are waiting for austin. You were right in the middle of inviting him to jason and carly’s wedding.

[ Both sigh ]

[ Monitor beeping ] Doc, how is she? Commissioner ashford’s still unconscious, and we’re treating her with pure oxygen to try and get the levels in her blood back up. How long will that take? Hard to say. I-I can’t tell you. It varies from patient to patient. We’re waiting for her blood work back to determine how much carbon monoxide is still in her system. Okay, I-I’d like to go see her. Yeah, I’m sure that you would, but I cannot allow that. I’m really sorry. It’s just that, from my understanding, you and commissioner ashford are divorced, and it’s family only. Okay, well, you understood wrong, okay? We’re not divorced. I am still her husband. Mazel tov. Go ahead.

[ Monitor beeping ] Doctor says you’re doing great. Heartbeat is steady. Now I just need you to wake up.

[ Smooches, sniffles ] Please. Mike, oh, that’s wonderful news. How did nina respond? Did she say she loves you back? Yeah, she did. Just as I predicted. You — you predicted this? Not to you, maybe. Oh. I wanted you and nina to figure it out for yourselves. But now that you have, why aren’t you with her? Because, uh, you know her friend jax? He’s back, and he’s talking a lot, and not good. That man never takes no for an answer. I can’t tell you how many times nina and i have told him to back off. Well, ye– so have I. But now she wants me to back off and talk to jax in private. Are they at the tan-o? That’s where I’m going.Wait, whoa, whoa, hey, wait — wait a minute. No one wants to go there as much as I do. But she told me she wants to talk to jax alone, so I’m going to respect her wishes. For now. Jax: Do you hear yourself? “Sonny can stay dead”? But he — but he’s not dead. He was just here. I-I was talking to him. And please don’t tell me that he’s some made-up person named mike. No, mike isn’t made-up. And he’s nothing like sonny.

[ Scoffs ] He was pretty quick to threaten me. He told me to leave before I get shot again. I mean, it sounds like the old sonny I’ve always known. No, he didn’t mean it. And mike, he’s just protective of the people he — he loves. Stop calling him mike. Mike — mike is free from the mob, jax. Mike is free from the violence that has haunted sonny his entire life. And mike isn’t grieving a son that was killed. He’s not focused in on revenge and power and greed. Mike can be the good man that he is inside, that he always has been. And gave you what I couldn’t? Honesty? Yes. And you’re paying back his honesty with lies. Okay, so, if we — if we get married, it’s going to be real. You don’t have to be afraid. You’re not going to be in this alone. So we can stay best friends, figure out how to be husband and wife and fall in love and all that stuff. That’s scary. Yeah, I know. But I’m looking forward to it. Me, too.

[ Chuckling ] This is happening? Do you need to hear it? I do. I do. You do.

[ Sighs ] Carly… …will you marry me? With all my heart.

While we’re waiting, why don’tyou tell me about louise? I mean bailey. And start from when she woke up this morning. Was she smiling? Hungry? Fussy? I want to know everything. Dr. Robinson. Are you okay? What — what happened? Oh, I’ll be fine. But your mom, she was with me. She’s been injured. Come on, baby, open your eyes. You’re nothing if not a survivor. You have beat the odds so many times. I need you to beat them again. I need you to wake up, smile at me, and tell me you got this.

[ Monitor beeping ] Hey, curtis? Her blood results are back. Can I talk to you outside?

[ Smooches ] Doc, your face tells me the news isn’t good. So, the normal level of carbon monoxide in an adult who doesn’t smoke is less than 2%. And jordan’s? Jordan’s carboxyhemoglobin level is 58%.

[ Sighing ] Okay, that doesn’t sound good. We’re going to do everything we can, and we’re going to get her levels down quickly. And if that doesn’t work, then we’ll put her in a hyperbaric chamber, because if we don’t do that, we could lose her. Doc… she can’t die. Mike is happy here. Mike has found peace with himself in a way that sonny never has. Do you remember how happy you were when you found out that sasha was your daughter? Mnh. It’s not the same thing. You were so happy to have your child in your life. You were the perfect mother-daughter match. But did your happiness justify valentin’s actions? You were torn apart when you found out the truth. Right? But you weren’t interested in valentin’s good intentions. You only cared that he manipulated you and lied to you, told you what you could and couldn’t know about your own life. I mean, is that what you want for sonny? Of course not! I don’t want to see that kind of pain in his eyes. But you will, nina. That’s inevitable. Eventually, sonny is going to find out the truth about who he really is. I can’t lose mike, jax. I won’t! You won’t lose mike, because he doesn’t exist. He never has. You two hardly know each other. Why would you want to move in together? What better way to get to know each other? We’re having a baby, ma. It makes sense to keep the family together. I’m family, but you don’t think twice about kicking me out. Maybe your new friend vincent novak can help you find a place. Maybe he will. Vincent at least knows how to treat a lady right. Mom, did you not learn anything with your involvement with cyrus renault? My involvement with mr. Renault was a business transaction. Vincent doesn’t want anything from me except the pleasure of my company. And you know what? I’m not discussing this with you anymore. You know what else I’m not discussing? Moving out. It’s not like you’re even there most of the time. Brando’s been busy with his side gigs. Side gigs? W-why do you need extra work? That garage is doing just fine, isn’t it? I need to save up some money for the baby, so I need some extra cash. Brando has some amazing hidden talents. Your son is quite the entertainer.

[ Giggles ] What’s that supposed to mean? I’m a stripper, mom.

[ Coughing ] Mr. Renault wants to remain in control, calling the shots even from prison. At least he’s contained. We no longer have to worry about the threat that his operation once posed to our own. Once we deal with mr. Morgan and mrs. Corinthos, port charles will finally be open to all of us. We can split it three ways and operate as we see fit. We only have one chance to bring down the corinthos organization. Tonight, while the head of the five families are at the wedding, we’ll make our move. Anything from nina? Afraid not. I tell you, if I don’t hear from her soon, I’m going to the tan-o and making sure she’s okay. Good. That mr. Jacks is much too pushy for my taste. But I tell you, nina says she can handle him. I’m sure she can, but only to a point. He’ll try and wear her down. He’ll draw on their history together. I know nina has conflicting feelings where he’s concerned, and I worry that mr. Jacks could undermine her belief in her life that she’s made for herself. How long will you wait? Where’s your watch, mike?

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] I decided to let it go, let the past go, and concentrate on… the future with nina. I need to text josslyn and tell her I’m so sorry for taking off like I did. Actually, I texted her that I found you, so… she called you when she realized I wasn’t home? No, actually, I stopped by to pick up my suit. Your suit. Mm-hmm. It was at the house.

Our house.

[ Sighing ] Oh, wow. I mean, I know you’ve been staying there for months, but staying there is very different from living there and — mm-hmm, yeah, it’s a — it’s a big difference.

[ Sighs ] This is crazy! I mean, it’s just hitting me. We’re getting married. I mean, I-I’ve been so caught up in the politics and the five families and wondering if I could even go through with it, but this is happening. It’s real. Today’s our wedding day.

Oment,it’s my duty as a physician to inform you of the worst-case scenario. You have every right to know what kind of jeopardy that jordan is in. But I don’t believe that there’s any medical value in guesswork or trying to predict an outcome. I do, however, wholeheartedly believe that there’s incredible medical significance to somebody who cares about jordan, like you, hoping for the best. So let’s just do that. Tj: Dr. Gatlin-holt. Hi. How’s my mom? Curtis and I were just discussing her condition, and the blood work is back, and your mom is suffering from severe carbon monoxide poisoning. She only has one kidney. Is s-she in danger of renal failure? It’s a possibility. Her renal functions have been compromised. But, dr. Ashford, we’re monitoring it. Look, why don’t you go see your mom and let her know you’re here with her? I’m going to consult her nephrologist. Have me paged if her condition changes. Well, bailey falls right to sleep. She wakes up about an hour later, you know, fussing. Valentin and I find it really hard not to go in there. So you just let her cry? No! [ Scoffs ] Absolutely not. But, you know, if she wakes up and isn’t crying and is just making noises for attention, then we try to wait it out, you know, see if she could fall asleep on her own. She’s too young for self-soothing, brook lynn. When james was that age, I let him fall asleep in my arms. Well, experts say it’s really important to get a child on a routine. I know routines are important. I have two other children. Are you implying I’m a bad mom?

[ Coughing ] My son?! A stripper?! He’s really good. Okay? Everyone at carly’s bachelorette party was thrilled. He’s very entertaining. He stripped for carly? She was very appreciative. Oh. Well, of course. Of course, she’s the type who would hire a stripper. No class at all! Actually, uh, olivia quartermaine hired me. Beside the point, brando.

[ Chuckles ] You could do anything. Why this? I’m at the garage all day. I needed to find night and weekend gigs, and there aren’t a lot of those that pay well. Stripping does. Mm-hmm. W-what about you, ms. Face of “conception”? Can’t you cough up the cash? I’m tired. I’m tired of thinking about a past that I can’t remember. Well, that’s quite a gesture. I mean, you know, what is a watch compared to the woman that I love and who loves me? Hmm! Your watch was from your past. Yes. You want to show nina that you’re ready to move forward with her. I got everything I need right here with nina.

[ Both laugh ] I am so glad my two favorite people found each other. And you know what? Come hell or high water… I’m not letting nina go. There you go. Whoo! There you go. Isn’t that nice?

[ Chuckles ] You don’t understand. Mike brought me back to life when I lost my daughter… and I lost you. I was so upset and heartbroken, jax. Mike changed all that. The love that we share is real. Then it should be able to survive the truth. I mean, if you really think that he’s gonna choose you over his old life, then at least give him the information to make that choice. But it won’t be a choice because the instant that people know that sonny corinthos is alive, then mike is gonna be trapped in that world again. Because that is his world! Sonny chose it over and over. He made himself kingpin. He was ruthless and ambitious, and he got exactly what he wanted. And you know what? I’m not gonna stand by and let carly marry jason so she can manage his territory when he’s alive and he can manage it himself!

[ Chuckles ] Ohh! Of course! This isn’t about sonny. And it certainly isn’t about me. It’s about carly. Just

to be clear, I’m still committed to the business aspect. I do realize we’re putting on a show for the five families, but like you said, this wedding is about us. Yeah, it — it will be. Then we should celebrate. Oh, yeah. Trust me — maxie is gonna make sure that we celebrate. Not maxie’s celebration.

Our celebration right here at jake’s, where it all began. At jake’s? Jake’s is, uh — jake’s is gone. This is where we first met, where we had our first dance. I mean, I know there’s no pool table or bar, but — yeah, there’s no music. I don’t really hear any music, either. I — I can hear music. You can just follow my lead. Yeah, but w-we’re gonna dance at the reception. That’s a show for everybody else. This would be just for us.

[ Chuckles ]

I think you like dancing. I do not like to dance. Um, but I can’t say no to you.

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh. Sorry. It’s tony. Hey, tony. What is it? W-what’s wrong with her? Okay. All right. Thanks. Uh, one of our people saw commissioner ashford brought to general hospital. Looks like she was attacked. Do you think cyrus was involved? I don’t know. Let’s go find out. I am such an idiot. I should have known this is all about carly for you. Oh, come on. That — that is just not true! I know you’re scared. Okay? You’re scared because you know your happiness with sonny, it can’t last. And even if I kept his identity a secret, eventually he’s going to remember. You don’t know that! No one does! All right. Look. I — I understand if you don’t want to consider carly’s feelings. That’s fine. But you cannot ignore his kids. They’re back in port charles. They’re grieving for their father. And donna and avery, they’re just small children. They deserve their dad in their lives. You don’t think I know that? Remember how it felt to have wiley back in your life? Well, that boy is sonny’s grandson. Doesn’t he have the right to know sonny? Doesn’t sonny — not mike, but sonny — have the right to know wiley? Sasha’s finances are none of your business. Brando and I intend to co-parent our baby, which means that we are splitting the costs down the middle. And you think this is fair? My son is taking his pants off while you have more than enough dough to keep my grandkid in designer onesies. No one asked for your opinion. It’s our baby. We’re gonna make our decision based on what’s important to us. Gladys. What a pleasant surprise. You look lovely as always.

[ Chuckles ] That’s so sweet, vincent. Well, wait till you see what I’m wearing to jason and carly’s wedding. Well, just remember — it’s bad form to overshadow the bride.

[ Chuckles ] Says who?

[ Gladys and vincent laugh ] And here we are. Again.

[ Monitor beeping ] Like when you were waiting on a kidney transplant. But you pulled through then. And you’ll pull through now, right? I mean, who else is — who else is gonna make sure I keep my head on right? And I am not above playing the guilt card here. I’m not. Because you know how much I love you… and how destroyed I would be if you left, so… you’ve got to stay here, mom. Just… stay. I could not stand by while my infant was upset. I’m not just sitting around filing my nails, maxie. I just think it’s better to — to let her try to fall asleep on her own if she can. Is it easier for you to ignore bailey because you’re not really her mother? I don’t ignore bailey. And as long as peter is still out in the world and a threat to you and your daughter, I am bailey lois’ mother, and I will parent her the best way that I can. Portia! We heard that jordan was brought into the E.R. What happened? Yeah, well, I was with her. Jordan and I were trapped in the basement with a gas leak. If curtis hadn’t have found us… we would have died. Do you know who was behind it? Doc, what did jordan’s nephrologist say? If her kidney functions don’t improve, we’ll put her on dialysis. Dialysis?

[ Sighs ]

[ Monitor beeping ] T, you don’t have to go. I just, um — I-I just need a minute. I’ll be right back. You’re really gonna keep all the people who love you worrying? Dad, it’s me. Um, I’m in the E.R. Mom’s here. They — they brought her in with carbon-monoxide poisoning, which is — it’s bad for anyone, but she’s only got one kidney, and that makes it even worse. Thanks. You know, even though we couldn’t be together anymore… …I never stopped loving you. I couldn’t if I tried.

[ Laughs ] What? Nothing. I just love seeing you so happy. Well, you gotta give nina the credit. You know? Well, I’ll be sure and thank her. Not to meddle… hm. …But don’t you think it’s time you made sure she’s okay? Yeah, jax is — he should be getting home by n– okay, yeah. I’ll see you later. Okay. Congratulations. You won. I can’t think of any way to justify keeping sonny away from his kids and… denying avery and donna and wiley a chance to get to know him, so… mike’s gonna find out the truth — that he has this whole other world that I was — I was keeping from him, that he has these people that love him that are waiting for him… that our life here in nixon falls, our time together, it was just an illusion. I’m really sorry. I-I really am. And if you think that I did this to hurt you in any way, you couldn’t be more wrong, okay? Just do me a favor. Let me tell him. Let me tell him in private. If you have any feelings left for me…

[ Scoffs ] …Give me this.

[ Footsteps approach ] Jax: Here’s your chance. There was a body in the basement, and we believe it to be a man named roger barstow? Curtis and I went there to go speak with him, and jordan was there on a different case. Okay, does this have anything to do with cyrus renault? I thought cyrus renault was in prison. Uh, he is, but that does not mean he’s powerless. Well, this, um, barstow was the former employee of a medical clinic by the name of crichton-clark. Maxie, it was your decision to give me your daughter and let me pretend that she was mine and valentin’s, but you should know I love bailey. And I always do what I think is best for her. Brook lynn, I know you’re doing the best you can. But you are not her mother. I am. And I should be making decisions about her care. Okay, well, do you think it’s time that you claim bailey as your own? Tj. Thanks for coming. Hey. Thanks for calling me. Do you know what happened? Not really. No. Someone told me that — that dr. Robinson was here being treated after some accident. What? Portia is here? Yeah. Yeah, she told me that — that she and curtis went to question some guy, and mom showed up. And I don’t — I don’t know how it happened, but she took a blow to the head. She’s — she’s got a concussion, which they’re monitoring, but the — the real problem is the carbon-monoxide poisoning. Do you think this is connected to the work that you were doing with mom? It has to be. Your mom was going to question a man named roger barstow about a possible connection to naomi dreyfus, but I don’t have any idea how portia and curtis got involved. It’s a good thing they did. I — I think they saved mom’s life. Come on, jordan. Don’t break my heart again. Or tj’S. You still have so many great things to do in this world. And I know how much you hate leaving anything unfinished. So fight. Fight as hard as I know you can.

Thank you. I’m gonna be right outside, okay? Jax, please? Let me be the one to tell him. Okay. You get to tell sonny about his past on your own terms. But I am not leaving nixon falls until i know you’ve told him the truth. I’m not gonna go back on my word. I just need to do it my own way. Okay. Yes, but you also need to do it right now. All right. Can you give me a little space, please? I will do it. Fine. I’m not sure it’s safe for me to claim bailey yet, so maybe — austin! Hey. You know, I just remembered — I need to check in with yuri. Um, I don’t want him searching for me in the hospital. I’ll see you later. So, um, how is commissioner ashford? -Maxie, that’s confidential. -Right. Right. Family only. Okay. Maybe we could go back to the question I asked you before we got interrupted. Right. Your question. Yeah. Will you go to jason and carly’s wedding with me? Is that an actual question? Why wouldn’t it be? Because, maxie, you’ve made it clear to me that seeing me is a painful reminder for you of losing your lovely louise. So I don’t understand why you would want me to attend a wedding with you. This is brando, my son, and, uh, his — sasha gilmore. -Nice to meet you both. -Oh, please join us. Unfortunately, sasha and I can’t stay. We have an appointment. We don’t want to be late. Of course. Another time. Be careful. Does your son have a problem with me?

[ Sighs ] He has a short fuse these days. He’s working hard to support his baby-to-be. Ohh. He deserves better. You know, gladys, circumstances can always change. How so? Stick with me, doll… and good things will be coming to you and your family. Do you think that trina and i are still in danger from cyrus? I doubt it, but if I hear something, I’ll let you know. Thank you. I’m gonna check on jordan. How random they’re investigating a guy with ties to crichton-clark. You know, drew was there at one time. Yeah, I heard. Wonder what that investigation’s about. Carly, we have our own things to focus on right now.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, that’s josslyn saying that we are now officially late. Well, then, we should get going. Okay. I’ll see you at the altar.

[ Cellphone rings ] Yeah. I’m listening. Dad, I told my supervisor I have a family emergency, so another doctor is taking over my rounds for me. Look. Your mom’s tough, tj. All right? She’ll come through this. That’s what I tell myself, but still… it’s all right, bud. Curtis: [ Voice breaking ] Your family needs you.

I need you. They way I see it, you’ve got no choice. You got to come back to us.

[ Exhales shakily ] Jordan?

[ Chuckles ]

[ Line ringing ] Phyllis: Nina?

[ Stammers ] Phyllis. Um, is mike there? No, he accidentally left his phone behind. He’s on his way to the tan-O. Is everything all right? Everything’s fine.

[ Door opens ] Oh. Never mind. Mike’s here now. Um, we’ll talk soon, okay?

[ Beep ]

[ Footsteps approach ] Hey.

[Soft music]

Tripp: Hey.

Allie: Oh!

Tripp: Oh, hey. I just came to wish you good luck. I didn’t mean to scare you.

Allie: Sorry I’m so jumpy. I’ve just–I’m on no sleep. I’ve been up since dawn baking. I’m just really hoping people show up.

Tripp: Hey, they will. All right, today’s gonna be great. Is this your great-grandma’s recipe?

Allie: Yeah.

Tripp: Okay. Mmm, okay, yeah, amazing. Okay, you guys are gonna kill it.

Allie: [Sighs] Thank you. I needed to hear that.

Tripp: Well, I would have given you more of a pep talk earlier, but we haven’t really spoken since we went to drinks the other night.

Allie: I know, and I feel bad, but you’ve been working and I’ve just been so busy, you know, with the bakery and then finding a sitter for henry, I’m just– I don’t know, my mind’s been preoccupied.

Tripp: With the opening or with chanel and johnny?

[Dramatic music]


Ej: Never a dull moment.

[Tense music]


[Cell phone beeps]

[Line rings]

Xander: This is xander. Do your thing.


Ej: It’s been 24 hours and I still don’t have my money. You better get it to me, or I’ll do exactly what I warned I would do. Don’t you even think about crossing me. You will regret it.

[Phone beeps] Johnny, good morning.

Johnny: Dad, what’s going on?

Ej: Just making some work calls.

Johnny: Oh, that’s the kind of work you’re dying to get me to do, threatening people?


Ej: Don’t you even think about crossing me. You will regret it.

Xander: [Sighs]

[Knock at door] Who is it?

Gwen: It’s me.

Xander: Gwen. Gwen.

Gwen: Well, may I come in?

[Sighs] I heard that bonnie lockhart got arrested. You were right. She stole that million dollars from you.

Xander: Yeah, she’s in a jail cell as we speak.

Gwen: Well, you’re gonna get your money back.

Xander: Not exactly.

Jack: Are you sure you can take the time? Oh, that’s great, kayla. You know, doug just–you know, he just wasn’t himself yesterday and we’d all feel a lot better if you could check him out, so– great, yes, great, thanks. So he and julie will see you soon. Thanks. Yeah.

[Phone beeps] Oh, julie, how are you this morning?

Julie: Oh, fine.

Jack: No more chills?

Julie: [Chuckles] No.

Jack: Oh, and doug, how is doug?

Julie: He’s fine too, and we both could use some coffee, so I’m gonna get it for him.

Jack: Actually, I know you don’t want to talk about it, but doug did have a memory lapse yesterday, and I think, you know, it would be best if he got checked out by a doctor. And I talked to kayla, and she can slip him in today.

Julie: Call her back.

Jack: Why?

Julie: To cancel. We don’t need to see anybody.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]


Jack: You accidentally got locked in the freezer. You were banging on the door, and doug just left you there.

Julie: He didn’t mean to, jack. He’s hearing is going.

Jack: Yeah, but his eyes are okay. He saw you, and he just walked away.

Julie: It was a misunderstanding. He was on his way to the brady pub.

Jack: Yeah, where he confused roman with john.

Julie: Who doesn’t?

Jack: Well, he also mixed up marlena and vivian.

Julie: Will you stop harping on this? It’s over.

Jack: I saw how frightened you were when I unlocked that freezer, how scared you were when he didn’t pick up the phone and answer it. And what if he never made it to the pub? What if he was just out there wandering around?

Julie: I appreciate your concern, dear, but really, there’s absolutely nothing for you to be worried about.

Jack: Well, I am. And you should be too.

Gwen: Didn’t you go over to the kiriakis place to confront bonnie?

Xander: Yeah, I got there just as she and justin were about to tie the knot. I said I was missing a million bucks and I knew the bride had stolen it.

Gwen: What happened?

Xander: No, I told them to carry on. I’d just pop upstairs, have a look around. And lo and behold, there was my money in a bag with a gun. Stupidly, I called the police.

Gwen: Why is that stupid?

Xander: Well, before I could get out the door, the police found bonnie’s sister-in-law shot to death. They seized the cash as evidence.

Gwen: They’re gonna give it back to you, aren’t they?

Xander: Well, eventually.

Gwen: No, you need that money to give to ej. Otherwise he’s gonna call the judge and have those drug charges reinstated. You can go to prison, xander.

Xander: Oh, I’m aware. I just got a lovely voice mail from him reminding me the clock is ticking.

Gwen: What are you going to do?

Xander: I have to find a way to stall him, or I’m screwed.

Ej: What you heard was just business, son.

Johnny: “Pay me or else,” that’s how you do business?

Ej: Occasionally, one has to be tough. Someone I’m working with is trying to renege on a deal. They owe me $1 million cash. And I won’t let anyone cheat me out of what’s rightfully mine.

Johnny: You think he’ll pay up?

Ej: Within the hour if he knows what’s good for him.

Johnny: Mm. So if you’re about to get $1 million, which we both know is pocket change to you, why can’t you just invest some of it?

Ej: I’ve made my position clear. I’m not funding your pipe dream.

Johnny: When are you gonna get it through your head? This is not a pipe dream or a phase. I want this to be my career.

Ej: And I want you to work with me at dimera enterprises. You can make your own money and invest it however you’d like.

Johnny: Well, I don’t want to work in a business where it’s routine to threaten people.

Ej: Well, you don’t want to work at all. You want to make silly little movies on your phone.

Johnny: You can insult me. You can belittle me. You can cut off my credit cards, whatever. The fact remains, I will never be you, and I will never work at dimera.

Ej: Well, you’ll just have to find another wealthy chump–

[Clears throat] I mean relative to hit up for money.

Johnny: Oh, I’ve got plenty of family who will support me, even if my own father won’T. So you can take your damn job and shove it.

Chad: Doing a little father-son bonding?

[Tense music]


Tripp: After I told you about johnny and chanel almost sleeping together, you went racing out of your place. You left me there, and I haven’t heard from you since. You never told me what happened between you and your brother.

Allie: Can we talk about this another time, okay? I have so much to do and I can’t get into this right now.

Tripp: Of course. I have to get to work anyway. I’ll be thinking of you. Believe in yourself, allie, like I do. Hey, this is the start of something incredible, okay?

Allie: I hope so.

Tripp: I know so. I’ll text you when my shift is over, okay?

Allie: Okay.

Tripp: I’ll be thinking of you.

[Dramatic music]


Limu emu & doug

Julie: Jack, you’re blowing this out of proportion.

Jack: When I first came back to salem, I had no memory of my past. I couldn’t remember my wife or my kids. I don’t want that for doug.

Julie: Oh, for god’s sake. He had a little confusion yesterday and then a slip of the tongue, you know? It happens to everybody.

Jack: I know you want to just put this out of your mind and move on, but wouldn’t it be better if we just got him examined?

Julie: Well, he gets a checkup next month. They can examine him then.

Jack: I think we should do it now.

Julie: Well, it’s not your decision to make. He’s my husband. I know him. I know him better than anybody in the world. And he does not have dementia.

Doug: You got that right.

[Phone ringing]

[Tense music]

Ej: [Sighs]

[Phone beeps] What is it, xander?

Xander: I found your missing money.

Ej: Ah, then why don’t i have it back?

Xander: I assume you heard bonnie lockhart was arrested?

Ej: I did.

Xander: Well, the person she robbed was me. Unfortunately, the police found the cash at her murder scene and they confiscated it as evidence.

Ej: That is not my problem. It’s yours.

Xander: Well, actually, it’s not a problem at all, mate. The police assured me that I’ll get the money back as soon as bonnie is arraigned, so as soon as it’s back in my possession, I’ll deliver it directly to you.

Ej: See that you do, or you’ll be very sorry…mate.

[Phone beeps, clatters]

Chad: Everything okay?

Ej: Fine. I’m just in a mood.

Chad: ‘Cause of johnny? Things seem a little tense between you two.

Ej: No thanks to you.

[Elevator bell dings]

Tripp: Johnny, what are you– what are you doing here?

Johnny: I came to talk to my grandma marlena about investing in my film.

Tripp: Ah, okay, well, good luck.

Johnny: Yeah, I won’t need it. She’s always had a soft spot for me.

Tripp: Hey, listen, you got a minute?

Johnny: For what?

Tripp: I’m just curious on what happened the other night between you and allie.

Allie: Hey.

Chanel: Hey.

Allie: The oatmeal cookies are going.

Chanel: Yeah, those are tripp’s favorite, right?

Allie: Right.

Chanel: Yeah, I saw him leaving.

Allie: Well, he just came by to say good luck, so… here. Sorry.

Chanel: What is up with you, horton? You’ve been stressed out since the moment you showed up.

Allie: I didn’t get any sleep last night, and I burned the pumpkin bread. I don’t know, I’m just a nervous wreck about this opening.

Chanel: Sure it’s about the opening?

Allie: Yeah, what else would I be nervous about?

Chanel: Okay, we need to do this before customers start showing up.

Allie: Do what?

Chanel: Clear the air about me and your brother.

If you have postmenopausal


Xander: I think I bought some time with ej.

Gwen: Ugh, I still feel completely gutted that I’m the one who brought you into this horrible mess. If you hadn’t confessed for a crime that I had committed, then–

Xander: Hey, it’s all gonna work out. I’m more concerned about you and jack. Fill me in on your conversation.

Gwen: [Sighs] You know I told him that snyder was blackmailing me into running drugs.

Xander: But did you tell him what snyder was holding over you? That you lied about your miscarriage?

Gwen: And that I blamed his other daughter, his dearest abigail, when she had nothing to do with it and then that drove her out of town and probably ruined her marriage? No, I didn’t tell him that part. In fact, I haven’t said anything to him yet. I said I needed time to think, so I just– oh, I made up this excuse that I had an errand, and I just kind of dashed out the door.

Xander: Well, he’s gonna want an answer soon.

Gwen: I know. But maybe with this crisis that’s happening with julie, that will keep him busy a bit, you know.

Xander: Oh, yeah, what happened to her? Did she freeze to death?

Gwen: No, I wish, but you won’t believe who locked her in the freezer. Doug.

Xander: No way.

Gwen: Yeah.

Xander: Really?

Gwen: Yeah, even he wants to get rid of the old ninny.

Xander: Ugh, I mean, I’ve been tempted to take her out myself.

Gwen: Yeah, right? I would settle for cryogenic preservation. Now, that would shut her up for a bit, wouldn’t it?

Xander: You know, if we’re patient, maybe we’ll get lucky and doug will try again, like, try and, you know–[Laughs]

Gwen: What?

Xander: Well, give her another heart attack by eating store-bought doughnuts in front of her.

Gwen: Oh, stop.

Xander: Or maybe he’ll try and drown her in a vat of scottish rye. Oh, no, better yet, maybe he’ll smother her to death with her beloved throw on her beloved couch.


Gwen: You’re horrible.


[Dramatic music]


Julie: See, my husband agrees with me.

Jack: Good morning, doug. We were just talking about what happened yesterday.

Doug: You mean when I found julie locked in the freezer and didn’t let her out?

Jack: You remember?

Doug: Of course I do. And I don’t know how in the world I could ever do such a thing. I’m so terribly sorry, my dear. I hope you can forgive me.

Julie: Oh, honey, nothing to forgive. The important thing is, I’m fine, and so are you.


Chanel: I’m a big girl, horton. I can take care of myself.

Allie: I know. I just wanted to warn you about my brother.

Chanel: So you crashed our date and trashed him right in front of me.

Allie: He is a huge player. I just wanted to tell you before you–

Chanel: Before I had sex with him?

Allie: Trust me, I did you a huge favor.

Chanel: I’ve had plenty of sleazy guys try and get with me, and that is not the vibe I got off G.

Allie: Because he’s really good at being charming and sounding sincere. Look, johnny is my twin and I love him, but he definitely does not have the best track record with women. I mean, I bet he told you I’m full of it.

Chanel: He hasn’t told me anything. I haven’t spoken to him since your little intervention.

Allie: Really?

Chanel: I haven’t had much time to chat with anyone. We are opening a bakery today.

Allie: I just thought he would have texted you or something.

Chanel: He has, repeatedly. I didn’t respond. What’s with the face? You told me to stay away from him. Isn’t this what you wanted?

Johnny: The other night, you mean when your girlfriend, aka my sister, barged in on me and chanel like a total lunatic?

Tripp: Look, I really didn’t mean to cause trouble when I told allie about you and chanel almost sleeping together.

Johnny: No, that’s no trouble, except my sister totally went off on me, said all I cared about was getting chanel into bed and once I did, I’d dump her. You know what chanel did? Walked right out the door.

Tripp: Look, I’m sorry. I knew she’d be upset, but I didn’t know she would go ballistic.

Johnny: You should have.

Tripp: Excuse me?

Johnny: Get a clue, dude. It’s obvious allie doesn’t want me with chanel because she wants her for herself.


Chad: What do I have to do with the problems between you and your son?

Ej: I asked you, cool, fun uncle chad, to help me persuade him to work at dimera.

Chad: Yeah, and I asked you what was in it for me. You never gave me an answer.

Ej: Because johnny walked in, and instead of trusting that we’d resume the discussion later, you–

Chad: Oh, do you mean like trust that if I helped you get jake out of the position as ceo that you wouldn’t try to grab the position for yourself?

Ej: That was a misunderstanding.

Chad: Well, I wasn’t gonna let you use me to get your kids in the door and then screw my kids down the road.

Ej: Instead you told johnny to follow his passion.

Chad: Yeah, I did. You know, and by the way, I followed mine, all right? I started a sports website. I opened a coffee shop, turned it into a nightclub. Wasn’t all successful, but I learned a hell of a lot along the way. And look where I ended up, back in the family fold. So why don’t you just let your son explore a little bit?

Ej: Out of the question. The boy needs to be put on the proper path.

Chad: You mean a leash.

Ej: [Scoffs] Well, at least my son is still living under this roof, which is more than can be said about your wife.

Chad: She’s helping her mom in boston.

Ej: Wasn’t she’s supposed to be back home months ago?

Chad: Well, I guess– I guess laura’s affairs were a bit more complicated than they thought.

Ej: Mm, and you haven’t taken thomas and charlotte to go visit her?

Chad: She doesn’t want me to.

Ej: She doesn’t want to see her own children?

Chad: Yes, of course she does.

Ej: Ah, she doesn’t want to see you. I’m sorry.

Chad: [Laughs] I don’t want your pity, all right? I spoke to jack. He’s gonna talk to her and figure out what her plans are.

Ej: And?

Chad: He hasn’t gotten back to me yet.

Ej: Meanwhile, you’re just standing around, hoping that she comes back to you.

Chad: What is it you expect me to do, ej?

Ej: Isn’t it obvious? Go get her.

Anything your wild child does pampers cruisers 360 fit can


Ej: If you had any sense, you’d be in boston right now, telling abigail her place is here with you and your children.

Chad: I don’t know what century you’re living in, but I don’t tell my wife what to do.

Ej: Well, given your laissez-faire attitude, it’s no wonder she left.

Chad: I’m sorry, I don’t see your wife anywhere around here.

Ej: Because I threw her out. She was cheating on me with her ex-husband and lied to my face about it.

Chad: Well, why don’t you chase her down and drag her back by her hair?

Ej: I don’t want to see that duplicitous whore ever again. And even if I did, I don’t know where she is. What?

Chad: Oh, I find that very hard to believe.

Tripp: Allie and I have talked about this, and it’s not true.

Johnny: Then why would she rip into me like a crazy person, bring up some ancient history about a friend of hers I dumped back in high school?

Tripp: She says that she cares about you both and if you started dating and something went wrong, then–

Johnny: That’s bull. Allie doesn’t want us dating because she is still hung up on chanel.

Tripp: She told me she’s not.

Johnny: Yet she’s doing anything she can to keep us apart.

Tripp: Okay, even if she is, she doesn’t control chanel, all right? She can make up her own mind about you.

Johnny: Looks like she already has.

Tripp: What does that mean?

Johnny: She’s ghosting me, dude. She won’t return my calls or texts, and it’s all my sister’s fault.

Allie: I’m sorry for storming into johnny’S. That wasn’t cool.

Chanel: It wasn’t cool of me to leave either, but I didn’t know what else to do.

Allie: Well, you were stuck in the middle because of me. I really should have talked to him about it privately, but when tripp said that you and johnny almost slept together, I just–I just reacted. I knew that the only reason you didn’t the first time was because you didn’t have protection, and I was scared that if you went through with it last time, you’d end up like katie.

Chanel: Who’s katie?

Allie: One of my friends that johnny dated in high school.

Chanel: I’m not a naive teenager.

Allie: I know, but you have to understand, okay, johnny has a way with women. He knows how to get what he wants.

Chanel: And he got what he wanted from katie?

Allie: He sure did. He got her into bed, and then the next week, he dumped her. He broke her heart.

Chanel: It happens.

Allie: Well, I don’t want it to happen to you. I just felt like I had to stop you.

Chanel: Well, mission accomplished.

Allie: I’m sorry that I caused a scene, but I only did it because I care about you so much.

Chanel: We should get back to work.

Allie: Okay, but first, dupree, let me know, can you please forgive me?

[Dramatic music]


Xander: [Chuckles]

Gwen: [Clicks tongue] I hope you know that this is not why I came over here. I just didn’t want ej to throw you to the wolves.

Xander: Oh, and, I hope you know I only kept you here because I’m so concerned about your relationship with jack.

Gwen: Mm, yeah. We just–we just got caught up in the moment, didn’t we?

Xander: Exactly. Neither of us intended to end up back here again, did we?

Gwen: Course not. Especially because we said– we said weren’t gonna see each other, didn’t we? And my father would absolutely die if he saw me in bed with you like this, even though I told him that you’re not a drug runner and that you just took the rap to protect me.

Xander: Yeah, he still hates my guts.

Gwen: If he finds out about my miscarriage, he’s gonna hate my guts too.


Doug: Okay, you have my word. I will not leave anyone in a freezer again.

Julie: [Chuckles]

Jack: Well, that’s not all that happened, doug.

Doug: Well, yes, I was confused about a number of things yesterday. I called roman john, and i mixed up marlena and vivian, but my doctor says that lots of us have minor memory issues when we get older.

Julie: I told jack that. I told him it was very common, but he won’t let it go.

Doug: Well, I think I actually know why it happened.

Jack: Why?

Doug: Well, I slept so terribly the night before. I was restless, had bad dreams, tossed and turned the entire night.

Julie: And how did you sleep last night, darling?

Doug: Like a baby.

If you think all pads are exactly the same,…

Doug: I think we should get going. You and I have a very important place to be.

Julie: We do?

Doug: Allie and her friend are opening their bakery today.

Julie: I didn’t remember that.

Doug: Well, that’s perfectly understandable, honey. You had a very difficult day yesterday, and it was all my fault.

Julie: No, let’s just put that behind us. You’re right. We should just hustle down to the town square and show those girls our support.

Jack: Are you sure you won’t go to your appointment with kayla first?

Doug: We have an appointment with kayla?

Julie: Well, jack took it upon himself to make an appointment to get you checked over, but obviously, that is not necessary. And, jack, I know your heart is in the right place, but obviously, we’re both fine. Doug, healthy as a horse.

Doug: And hungry as a horse. I can’t wait to get some of those sweet bits.

Julie: Me too, sweetie. Ah, ah, me too. Shall we?

Doug: Okay.

Jack: All right.

Doug: See you, jack.

Jack: Yup, see you.


[Dramatic music]


Gwen: I know how much your friendship with jack meant to you.

Xander: Not as much as building a father-daughter relationship with him means to you.

Gwen: Yeah, it means everything.

Xander: If jack finds out that you let abigail think it was her fault that you lost your baby when, in reality, you already had, I don’t think he’ll ever forgive you.

Gwen: Yeah, he’s loved abigail her whole life. I’m his daughter just come lately.

Xander: Hey, you’re every bit as much his child as she is.

Gwen: I know, but we don’t have that history, you know?

Xander: [Inhales deeply] So you need a story, a really convincing story about the blackmail.

Gwen: I know, I’m trying, but…[Sighs] You know, it’s really difficult, even for the woman that you say is a very highly skilled liar.

Xander: That was a compliment.

Gwen: [Chuckles] Oh, I can normally come up with lies in my sleep, but this time, I’m just really stumped.

Xander: And you got to remember that jack’s an investigative reporter, so it’s got to be something that he’d just believe on the surface and not be tempted to look into.

Gwen: It has to be something where I’m scared enough for it to come out but not so bad that he would turn his back on me. Oh, god, the pressure is so much.

Xander: Hey, don’t worry about it, gwen. We can do this.

Gwen: We?

Xander: Well, two highly skilled liars are better than one. Let’s put our heads together. I’m sure we can think of something.

Gwen: [Laughs] Okay.

Ej: What exactly are you insinuating?

Chad: Just that you’re not the kind of guy that loses track of people. You were the only one in touch with kristen. No one else knew where she was.

Ej: Kristen is our sister.

Chad: Sami’s your wife.

Ej: But as I’ve told you, I’m through with her. I’ve turned my full attention to dimera.

Chad: I’ll bet you a million dollars that you know where she is or you are very close to finding out.

Ej: And you’d lose that bet. Samantha could fall off the face of the earth, as far as I’m concerned. Anyway, we weren’t talking about my wife. We were talking about yours. So tell me, brother, what’s the plan?

Tripp: Look, I get why you’re pissed, but allie and chanel are just friends.

Johnny: Friends with benefits.

Tripp: Okay, look, I know they kissed a couple of times, but allie said she wants to be with me, and I believe her.

Johnny: If she’s so into you, then why is she determined to mess things up for me and chanel? Why does she even care what happens between us?

Chanel: Of course I can forgive you. I know you were just looking out for me.

Allie: Thank you for understanding. I’m gonna go check on the almond croissants.

Chanel: Ah, we’re not done.

Allie: But you just said you understand.

Chanel: That you were trying to protect me, I do understand that, but I also think there might be a little more to it.

Allie: Like what?

Chanel: I made it clear I was into you, and you made it clear you wanted to be with tripp.

Allie: I do.

Chanel: But when I got with your brother, you lost your mind. So is it possible that this is a “you don’t want me, but you don’t want johnny to have me either” type sitch? I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Xander: Tell me a story all about the evil dr. Snyder. What awful thing did he know about you? What terrible secret was he holding over you that you didn’t want your father to find out about?

Gwen: Well, I could tell him that I stole a million dollars from abigail.

Xander: Psh, it’s a bit obvious, isn’t it, a bit ripped from the headlines?

Gwen: What, I love “law & order.”

Xander: Well, who doesn’t? But the key word here is “convincing.”

Gwen: Okay, if you don’t like my idea, what’s your clever idea, then?

Xander: [Breathes deeply] I’ve got it. Tell him you used to be a hooker.

Gwen: [Gasps]

Xander: Tell jack that snyder was one of your clients.

Gwen: How do you expect me to say that and not throw up afterwards?

Xander: No, come on, hear me out. So one evening years ago, snyder partook of your services. And then you were here in salem, at the hospital getting medical treatment, and he recognized you, which is the most convincing part of the whole lie, because who could forget having sex with you? But then he threatened you. He said he would expose your past if you didn’t agree to be his drug mule.

Gwen: So I’m to tell my father that I slept with that utterly repulsive man for money?

[Dramatic music] It’s not happening, it’s not happening, no.

Xander: Well, you told me to come up with a story, and i can’t think of a better one.


Gwen: I can. I tell him the truth, and I let the chips fall where they may.


Tripp: Allie is just being a good friend, trying to keep chanel from getting hurt.

Johnny: By convincing all of you that I’m some jerk who uses women?

Tripp: I never said that. But your sister does know you better than anyone, so as far as I know, she’s right.

Johnny: Look, I’m not saying I’m a saint, okay, but I’m not out to use chanel. I like her…a lot, and I thought that she liked me too, but now I have no idea if I’ll ever hear from her again.

Allie: I’m trying so hard to do the right thing. I really thought I was doing the right thing.

Chanel: By getting between me and your brother?

Allie: I couldn’t let him use you. When I knew you were at his house, all I could think was that I had to get over there. And then when I saw you guys going upstairs together, all I could think was that I had to stop you.

Chanel: What happened after I left?

Allie: Johnny let me have it, and he stormed off. And then I went home, and I had a long talk with nicole about everything. She told me that I had to be honest.

Chanel: About what?

Allie: About why it bothered me so much that my brother was involved with my best friend.

Chanel: And what did you say?

Allie: [Sighs] At first, I thought confronting johnny– I thought doing that really was just to protect you. I guess I didn’t realize consciously the real reasons that I was doing it. I don’t know, I felt it when you told me that you met a guy you liked, so maybe–maybe i should have known that I didn’t just go running over there because I was blindsided and worried and upset. Maybe I also did it because… I was jealous.

Xander: Gwen, you can’t just rush out of here. Come on, you got to think about this.

Gwen: Yeah, I know, and I want to tell jack the truth. This is gonna be such a huge weight off my shoulders, xander.

Xander: Right, but it could also be the end of your relationship with him.

Gwen: Yeah, but I just can’t live with this lie anymore. I can’t, and if he hates me, at least he’ll stop hating you.

Xander: I wouldn’t be too sure about that. I mean, I’ve known the real story about your miscarriage for months, and I didn’t say a word. He might end up just hating both of us.

[Sighs] On the bright side…

Gwen: There’s a bright side?

Xander: If jack does find out the truth, then there’s, you know, no need for us to…

Gwen: To what?

Xander: Well, I was gonna say there’s no need for us to not see each other, but then of course, we’re not seeing each other, are we?

Gwen: No, we’re not.

Xander: But yesterday when I asked you if that’s what you wanted, you seemed… open to the possibility.

Gwen: Are you saying this ’cause we just shagged?

Xander: No.

Gwen: Good. Because as I said, this is not why I came over here. I came over here to make sure that you could pay ej.

Xander: And as I said, I only kept you here because I wanted to ask you what you decided to tell your father.

Gwen: And now I’m leaving.

Xander: Okay, well, goodbye, gwen.

Gwen: Goodbye, xander.

Psoriatic arthritis, made my joints stiff,

Johnny: Look, I got to go talk to my grandma now, but I haven’t seen my sister since she went psycho, so maybe you can deliver a message for me.

Tripp: Yeah, and what’s that?

Johnny: Tell her to stay the hell out of my business from now on.

[Tense music]


Doug: Well, congratulations, you two.

Allie: Hi, thank you so much for coming. Chanel, you remember julie and doug?

Chanel: Of course. Nice to see you again.

Julie: Nice to see you, chanel. Wow, what scrumptious samples you ladies have. You must tell me what is the most heart-healthy thing on this table, and something light would be good for doug too.

Doug: I had a piece of devil’s food cake last night, and she’s trying to rein me in.


Chanel: Well, I would go for the blueberry muffins. They’re made with whole wheat flour and olive oil, and they are fresh out the oven.

Allie: Oh, my god, the croissants.

Chanel: Oh, sorry, excuse us.

Julie: Excuse you. Excuse you. [Laughs]

Doug: Okay.

Julie: Wow.

Doug: I’m going for one of these.

Julie: Okay, here we go, darling.

[Laughs] All right. I guess it doesn’t matter just this once. After all, this is a day to celebrate, not to scold. Mmm! Mm. Yummy, huh?

Doug: Yeah, absolutely delicious.

Julie: Yes, absolutely. Oh, my, I’m so thrilled. I mean, our family recipe is gonna be available to everybody in salem right here in the square. I mean, it’s a– it’s a thrill. It’s a wonderful occasion. And remarkably, these doughnuts, they taste exactly like alice’S.

Doug: I’m sorry, darling, but who the heck is alice?


Jack: Hey.

Gwen: Hi there.

Jack: Hi. Hi, honey.

Gwen: Hi. Oh. How are doug and julie today?

Jack: Much better, thanks. Yeah, doug seems to be in his old self again. I’m just hoping that that whole episode was just an aberration.

Gwen: Me too.

Jack: And since they’re out, maybe–well, maybe you and i can finish that conversation.

Gwen: That’s actually why I came home. See, I think it’s time that you knew the truth about dr. Snyder and what he was holding over me.

[Knock at door]

Xander: [Exhales heavily]

Ej: I just called the courthouse. Bonnie lockhart was arraigned over an hour ago. Where’s my money?

Xander: I was just about to go get it.

Ej: Hmm, I don’t believe you.

Xander: You know, I still don’t understand why such a rich man cares so much about a million dollars.

Ej: I told you it’s the principle. I find it maddening that my hypocrite of a wife used my money to expose nicole’s infidelity when she was cheating on me.

Xander: What are you doing?

Ej: I gave you fair warning, and now I’m calling the judge. Expect to be in handcuffs shortly.

Xander: I just said I was gonna go get the money.

Ej: The only place you’re going, my friend, is jail.

Chad: Abby? Abigail?

Abigail: I’m right here.

[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: You’re my son. We have the same dna. The same blood running through our veins…

Steffy: Don’t listen to her!

Sheila: We are connected forever. I feel it in my heart, in my very soul and I know that you do, too.

Steffy: Finn. Finn, please just–just look at me. She’s manipulating you! All we have to do is just walk out of the room and never see her again.

Sheila: Why don’t you ever let finn make his own decisions? Son, I’m begging you. Please don’t turn your back on me. I love you. Just let me be a part of your life.

Quinn: Mm… mm, mm, mm. Well, you never cease to amaze me. This is such a romantic surprise.

Eric: I think there’s one surprise you could’ve done without, isn’t there?

Quinn: Oh, c’mon. Haven’t you heard? Sex is overrated.

Eric: If only.

Quinn: No, c’mon honey. You’ll see. This too shall pass. And I refuse to believe that this E.D. Is permanent. And who knows, maybe tonight is the night that changes everything.

Eric: I’m counting on that.

Ridge: Oh boy. Once again, I’m overdressed. What’re we doin’?

Carter: I spilled coffee all over myself so I’m changing my clothes.

Ridge: Coffee, huh?

Carter: I reached out to the judge about moving up that hearing date for sheila’s restraining order. Waiting to hear back from her.

Ridge: Well, anything you can do is appreciated. Thank you.

Carter: Yeah, I know you’re worried about steffy. I’ll convey the urgency.

Ridge: I am worried. Got sheila running around with some kind of… biological claim on her family. I’m also a little worried about my dad.

Ridge: I’m trying to get used to the idea that my dad forgave quinn and took her back.

Carter: I was caught off guard, too. But I’m guessing no one’s more surprised than quinn, right?

Ridge: She should be surprised after what she did…

Carter: Look, I genuinely want what’s best for those two. Eric and quinn love each other deeply. They belong together.

Eric: A dance, my love?

Quinn: Ooh.

Eric: Right this way.

[ Romantic music ] Now you spin.

[ Quinn laughing ]

[ Quinn moaning ]

Quinn: Is everything okay?

Eric: What could be wrong? Dancing here with my beautiful wife. And make no mistake, your beauty is incomparable.

[ Quinn scoffing ]

Steffy: I get why this is hard for you! Sheila is your birth mother and you don’t want to shut her out. But you have another family, another family who needs to be protected from her!

Sheila: I am not a threat! Not to steffy! Not to the kids! I just want to know my son and my grandson!

Dr. Griffith: Everything all right in here?

Finn: Uh yeah, it’s under control, dr. Griffith. Do you have the results?

Dr. Griffith: Your tests and blood work came back normal. No dehydration. Good news, ms. Carter. You appear to be fine. I’ll have the nurse get your discharge started.

Sheila: Thank you, doctor.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: You see? She’s fine! There was nothing wrong with her to begin with! Sheila played you, finn. Oh, she played you. Some people have joint pain,

Carter: So, you don’t buy it? You don’t believe that eric and quinn love each other?

Ridge: After everything that went down, no. I’m not buying any of it.

Carter: But see, that’s it. That’s how the whole thing went down. Look, I was messed up after zoe, quinn was reeling from eric’s rejection, ridge. That’s how this happened. That was the perfect storm.

Ridge: Hey, why don’t we do this. Why don’t we see what happens tonight. Dad has planned something special for her. He’s a master of romance. So, we’ll see. Hey, I learned from him believe it or not.

Carter: Did you learn from him?

Ridge: Yeah.

Carter: Hm.

Ridge: Let’s get on with your night. Keep your shirt on.

Carter: I’ll try.

[ Phone ding ]

Eric: Sorry to leave you even for a moment. Something I had to take care of.

Quinn: No problem.

Eric: You admiring your portrait, are ya?

Well, I can’t help it.

Eric: No reason you should have to. I know how significant it is to you.

Quinn: Every time I look at that portrait, it just– it reminds me of how far I’ve come. I mean, I am married to mr. Eric forrester. I get to call this beautiful mansion my home. My jewelry line is successful beyond my wildest dreams, and… it’s all because of you. ‘Cause you love me. ‘Cause you opened your heart to me. I know you’re going through a really challenging time right now, but you know you’re not alone. I’m your wife. And I will always be right here, by your side.

Eric: My beautiful quinn.

Quinn: I love you… with every ounce of my being. And there is not one challenge out there that we can’t face together.

Eric: When you say it, I believe it.

Quinn: Yeah! You should believe it. You should. Eric, I know I’ve hurt you in the past, I have let you down. That’s never gonna happen again. My commitment to you is 1000%

Eric: I know that now, more than ever.

[ Quinn moaning ]

Sheila: I just, I wish there were something that I could say or do that would put a dent- in this hostility that you’re directing towards me.

Steffy: You can make it go away altogether. Leave and never come back.

Finn: Steffy.

Steffy: She’s a liar. This whole collapse– it was–it was a hoax. You realize that?

Finn: I don’t want to argue about that right now. I’m just glad that sheila’s okay.

Sheila: You know, your concern means a lot to me. It shows me that you do care about what happens to me.

Finn: I realize I owe you both an answer… from earlier. There’s only one thing I can do. Only one decision I can make.

Hey look at this!

Finn: I don’t know if your collapse was real or if you faked it. I mean, I certainly hope you didn’T. I’m glad you’re okay.

Sheila: You’re a compassionate man and I am so proud to call you my son.

Finn: When you told me you were my birth mother, I’d never been more shocked, or unprepared. I’ve wondered about you since dad and li told me I was adopted. What was your name? Did I look like you? Why couldn’t you keep me? I had so many questions that I never thought would be explained to me and then suddenly, there you were. Telling me things that I wanted to know. You gave me up so I would have chances in life that you weren’t equipped to give me. It was overwhelming, to say the least. You’ve had a profound impact on me and I’m glad we met. But my commitment is with steffy and our family. I wish you the best but I can’t have a relationship with you, not with my wife so against it. I’m sorry, but I can’t see you again, sheila. And you can’t be a grandmother to my son.

Sheila: No, you…

[ Voice breaking ] You don’t mean that, please finn. I… don’t shut me out. You and hayes are my family.

Finn: I wish you the best. I mean that.

Sheila: You can change his mind.

Steffy: Yeah, why would I do that?

Sheila: Because I’m his mother. Please, steffy. I didn’t come here to do battle with you. I’m not a bad person. I have goodness and love in my heart if you would just– just meet me in the middle, somewhere. Just give me a chance. Please, I will show you that I mean you no harm. I just want to know my son and my grandson.

Steffy: Goodbye, sheila.

[ Grunting ]

Quinn: Hey. I know it’s difficult but I don’t want you to worry. We’re gonna get through this.

Eric: You so beautifully expressed your devotion to me, but we have to be realistic. You’re a young, vibrant, sexy woman and you have needs that I may no longer be able to fulfill. Things that can only be expressed by making love.

Quinn: I don’t want you to think that way. C’mon, who knows what the future’s gonna hold! And no doctor has said this condition is permanent. Stop putting extra pressure on yourself by worrying about my needs. I’m happy, eric. Just being with you makes me happy.

Eric: Your happiness and your well-being are always gonna be my concern.

[ Door opening ]

Quinn: Carter. What are you doing here?

Carter: I got a text from eric.

Eric: I asked carter to join us. Don’t settle for products that give you a sort of white smile.

Quinn: You asked carter to join us?

Eric: Yes, yes, I did.

Carter: Looks like you were enjoying a lovely evening. I don’t want to intrude.

Eric: No, no intrusion. I know how close the two of you have become.

Carter: I’m sorry… where are we going with this?

Quinn: Nowhere. We’re not going anywhere with this. It stops here. Eric, you and I are back together. Why–why are we bringing up something so painful when we’ve already moved past it?

Eric: I didn’t ask carter here to rehash the past. You’re absolutely right. We’ve moved beyond that. My beautiful wife has moved home and she’s here in this house, with me. But I’m not able to be the husband to quinn that she deserves.

Quinn: Eric.

Eric: Look, this is, um. This is not a comfortable subject for me to talk about. I’ve seen doctors and so far, it’s been unsuccessful and, um–

Carter: You’re sick? I was concerned something was wrong. I asked quinn but she didn’t tell me.

Eric: No, no, no. Of course, she wouldn’T. And I love her for that.

Quinn: Why are you doing this?

Eric: At first, I tried to blame quinn for my shortcomings but I realized what I was really doing was just… covering my shame. I’m not able to satisfy my wife. You see what I mean, don’t you?

Carter: Yes… yes, and wow, um. I don’t know what to say, eric, but I’m sorry.

Eric: I was hoping for a spontaneous breakthrough when quinn moved home but unfortunately that hasn’t happened.

Quinn: Eric, why are you telling carter this?

Eric: Because I’ve come to the conclusion that just because my sex life is over, doesn’t mean yours has to be.

Steffy: Hayes goes down so much easier than kelly did at that age. So nice.

Finn: That age? She still fights it with everything she’s got.

Steffy: Yeah, and then all of a sudden she just passes out.

Finn: Should I open some wine?

Steffy: Oh babe, please. That sounds so great. Oh my goodness.

[ Finn sighing ]

Finn: I need to apologize again to you for sending that emoji to sheila. It was an impulse and I followed it. I mean, I should never have responded at all.

Steffy: I’m glad you realize that now.

Finn: I…I truly believed that she was out of our lives. That’s why I didn’t tell you. I thought it was one and done and I didn’t want to worry needlessly. I know now that was the wrong call.

Steffy: Well, you can’t beat yourself up. You were in a terrible position. And I get it, you wanted to know your mother. You were curious and that’s a completely normal reaction but, sheila is far from normal. I mean, faking a fall like that? That just proves that she hasn’t changed. She’s still this twisted, obsessive woman. But I am glad that you put your foot down, and you told her that she couldn’t be in your life, or hayes’. We still need to be vigilant. We have to keep our guard up. She doesn’t just walk away quietly. But you did the right thing breaking ties with her. And I’m really proud that you put our family first.

Finn: Always.

Sheila: Boy, it would be a mistake to count me out.

[ Grunting ] The forresters! They all write me off. They– they throw me away like I’m trash. But I will be a part of this family. Finn is my son and hayes is my grandson and I will be a part of their lives. And you better not try to stop me, steffy, or you’re gonna pay. You’re gonna pay dearly.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jack: [ Sighing ]

Phyllis: Where’s your she-devil tonight?

Adam: Why? So you can douse her with a champagne bucket again?

Phyllis: She brought me down to her level, which is even low for you.

Adam: Mm. Well, we, um, mud-dwellers have to stick together, you know?

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Look at you. I knew this new, improved version of adam newman wouldn’t last long. Do you know that sally would be out of town if you didn’t allow chloe to hire her?

Adam: I’m letting chloe give sally a second chance. I figured you would be in favor of those since you’ve had quite a few yourself.

Phyllis: You more than I.

Adam: It’s not a contest.

Phyllis: No, it’s not a contest! Why are you keeping her here? Honestly, sally ran my daughter out of town, and you’re getting some sort of pleasure by keeping her around.

Adam: Summer is doing quite well in milan, from what I hear.

Phyllis: That’s not the point.

Adam: Listen. I just want to have a drink without the drama.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

Adam: Or unless you want to tell me what your real issue is with sally. Then I’m all ears.

Phyllis: You already know my issue with sally.

Adam: I think I was right the first time that we discussed her — that you see a little bit of yourself in her.

Phyllis: I’m not even gonna dignify that with a response.

Adam: You have a tell, phyllis. Every time that you swan out of a room without getting the last word, I know that I hit a nerve. Mm.

Nick: Hey.

Sharon: Hey! Nice to see yoU. You want your usual?

Nick: Yes, please. Thank you.

Sharon: Alright. How are things?

Nick: Everything’s going good. I was just looking at some pictures earlier that summer sent me from milan of her and harrison.

Sharon: Ooh, let me see.

Nick: Alright. There you go.

Sharon: [ Gasps ] Aww, summer looks so happy.

Nick: I know, right? Uh, I also have some of dominic right here.

Sharon: Oh, I met him in person when abby brought him home from the hospital. He’s adorable.

Nick: He’s sure is. I’m just so glad that he is healthy, considering how he came into this world. How’s mariah doing?

Sharon: You know, honestly, i think this ordeal has affected her in more ways than she even realizes, but she’s got a strong, loving support system.

Nick: Well, I hope I’m included in that group.

Sharon: Of course. You’re family. Look, I know you’ve had a lot keeping you busy lately. I read an article about the newman media launch party, and, uh, new hope was featured quite prominently there.

Nick: That partnership is, uh — is looking good right now.

Sharon: I still can’t get over it, you working with adam.

Nick: Well, we have both been on our best behavior to this point.

Sharon: You giving him a chance to prove that he’s changed — that’s — it’s incredible. It’s a testament to the kind of man you are.

Nick: Thanks for saying that.

Sharon: Hey, how was the party?

Nick: The party. Uh, the party was great until, uh, you know, sally decided to mix it up with phyllis.

Sharon: No, she didn’T. Oh, my gosh. What happened?

Nick: Uh, well, you remember when you, uh, dumped that entire pitcher of milk on my mom’s head?

Sharon: Yeah.

Nick: Something like that, but just, you know, substitute the milk for a champagne ice bucket, and in the middle of a big, giant party.

Sharon: At phyllis’s hotel? Oh, my gosh.

Nick: Yeah. Phyllis just keeps finding ways to surprise me.

Jack: What brings you by at this hour?

Phyllis: Well, I was driving by. I saw the light on.

Jack: Really?

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] I-I saw the text that you sent to kyle in our family group text chain, so I knew you were here alone, in this big, empty house. I thought you might be lonely. I came to say hi.

Victor: Please come in.

Sally: Thank you. You have a lovely home. I will admit that your text caught me by surprise, but who could turn down a request from the great victor newman?

Victor: Thank you for being so prompt.

Sally: So, why don’t you tell me what this is all about? Though I do have some idea.

Sally: So, I am guessing you called me here to talk about the launch party, the scene I made with phyllis. I’m not proud of that. But luckily I didn’t read anything about it in the press, so it seems like it didn’t have any effect on the positive reception that newman media received. And adam wasn’t angry about it. I mean, I personally think it livened things up a little bit.

[ Chuckles ]

Victor: You know, so far, my sole focus has been on the launch party for newman media. But now that that is behind us, I’d like to get to know you a little.

Sally: Okay.

Victor: Would you like a drink?

Sally: Sure. I had an amazing single-malt scotch with adam the other evening.

Victor: Uh-huh. Well, I think I know which one you mean. So, did adam introduce you to this?

Sally: I was already aware of it, vaguely. It’s not really something my budget has allowed me to indulge in.

Victor: Well, now, I would not underestimate your success. I mean, first you were an assistant to lauren fenmore, and then you became the head of jcv. Right? That’s the job that my granddaughter held before you.

Sally: [ Sighs ] So, that is what this is about. Summer.

Sharon: I don’t suppose i have to guess who started this phyllis/sally showdown.

Nick: I actually wasn’t there when it happened. And I know I’m not getting the full story from jack. He’s being very protective of phyllis, trying to downplay her role in the incident. Anyway, jack got phyllis out of there pretty quickly, and then adam took sally away, so…

Sharon: Adam? Oh, right. Sally works at newman media now.

Nick: Yeah, I’m pretty sure sally was there as his date.

Sharon: Adam and sally. Interesting. Well, don’t look at me like you expect me to have some deep feelings about it. I mean, I said “interesting.” That’s it. Don’t read more into it.

Nick: There was a time when i didn’t think you were gonna be able to, uh, you know, detach yourself from the mess that is adam’s life. But I thought that if anybody could do it, it would be rey. He could help you, you know? And you guys seem pretty happy right now.

Sharon: We are. Thank you.

Nick: But I also know when it comes to your history with adam, it’s never quite that simple.

Jack: Thank you for dropping by to check in on me.

Phyllis: Of course. I owe you. You stopped me from making a real mess of the evening. Actually, a bigger mess of the evening.

[ Chuckles ] And then you gave me your pocket square so I could clean off the champagne on my face.

Jack: It was my pleasure. And for the record, all in all, you showed admirable restraint.

Phyllis: [ Laughing ] Oh, really? That’s generous.

Jack: I’m always a softie where you’re concerned, always have been.

Phyllis: So…that text that you sent kyle. Did I sense a certain melancholy and wistfulness?

Jack: I found a toy that harrison left behind. And it prompted a text, and maybe I got a little too nostalgic.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Are you okay?

Jack: Yeah. I’m — I’m — I’m fine. I’m tired. I’m winding down with a glass of wine before I go to bed.

Phyllis: Alright. I’ll let you go to sleep.

Jack: No, no, no. No. I’d love for you to stay. Actually, I could — I could use a friend right now.

Phyllis: So, do you want mindless chatter or deep insight?

Jack: [ Chuckles ] You are never mindless. You are sharp. You are funny. You are outrageous sometimes, just for the sake of being outrageous, but never mindless.

Phyllis: Deep insight it is, then.

[ Chuckles ] Why don’t you tell me what’s really going on?

Jack: I don’t want to get all maudlin. I — I have had countless conversations with people about kyle and summer’s decision to move to milan with harrison, and I just had it again earlier this evening with lauren. In all those conversations, i keep saying the same thing — “I’m fine. Change is good. Life goes on.” But it’s all happened so fast, it’s been a little jarring.

Phyllis: Yeah, I do understand how you feel.

Jack: And now I keep having this constant argument with myself. A part of me says, insists i need to move on, get on my with my life. And I get angry that I can’T. And another side of me says, “why should I? We’re talking about my son. We’re talking about my grandson.” This house used to be filled with noise and love and… and now it’s not. And I don’t want to get used to the silence. I don’t want to get used to the emptiness of it all.

Phyllis: You’re right. This house was up to its ears in abbotts.

Jack: Yeah, but traci now comes and goes to new york, and ashley the same thing and paris. But now kyle and harrison are gone.

Phyllis: So, what I’m hearing from you is that you’re lonely.

Jack: You have no idea.

Sharon: Look, I have told adam that the past is the past and I don’t want to go back there. You know, I’m not secretly drawn to him. I’m committed to my marriage. Don’t look at me like that. I mean, I’m telling you the truth.

Nick: I believe you, okay? I — [ Sighs ] I know how important it is to set boundaries, but I know how tempting it must be to allow adam’s toxicity back into your life, you know? But adam has shown a different side of himself. He saved faith’s life. He gave her a kidney. He came back to — to get me when I was trapped in that building in kansas. I mean, so I allowed him to come back into my life. What I’m saying is, I understand how it’s not so simple for you and, uh, you know, also that he’s a source of tension in your marriage.

Sharon: Okay. I wouldn’t be able to admit this to anyone but you. And given that you have come around about adam, I know you understand.

Nick: I mean, I have cut adam a break, but we are far from best friends. But I know how hard it is to want to see the good in him while also drawing a line.

Sharon: Yeah. That’s my dilemma. Um…you know, I think that people, everyone, needs someone in their life who really supports them. And I’ve made myself that for adam. And I’ve paid the price, but he’s also proven me right. So I just… it’s really difficult for me to try to turn my back on him completely.

Nick: And rey understands that?

Sharon: Yeah, rey and I, we’ve — you know, we’ve worked things out, and we’ve re-committed to our marriage.

Nick: That’s not what i asked. Does rey understand that you can’t completely cut adam out of your life?

Sally: Your wife already communicated in no uncertain terms how she views my involvement with summer, and i assume that you feel the same way, so I’m just gonna save you a little bit of time. Message received.

Victor: You caused summer quite a bit of distress. And that upsets me, you know? Now, had I intervened earlier, things would have turned out differently.

Sally: That sounds like a threat.

Victor: It’s not a threat. You know, you and adam caused quite a stir at the party, yeah? I mean, you prompted phyllis to empty a bucket of ice water over your head.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Victor: You know, adam is involved in a rather delicate situation with his son, connor. Connor’s very aware of the tension between his mother and his father. It’s not good for him. He’s upset by that. And what you may consider just harmless flirtation and socializing could have unwanted consequences. You understand what I’m saying?

Sally: Yes. Chloe actually brought this up to me earlier. I don’t know the details, but of course I am sensitive to the situation. I’m sure adam loves his son.

Victor: Yes, very much.

Sally: And he wants to protect him and do what’s best for him.

Victor: Of course.

Sally: So then shouldn’t adam be the once to decide what that is? I mean, should you really be dictating your adult son’s personal life — or mine, for that matter?

Victor: Let me put this in terms that you can grasp. Do not use my son adam as a way to salvage your…lackluster career. And arguing with me would be the worst mistake yet.

Adam: I guess I missed the memo about this meeting. Front loader odor.

Victor: I invited ms. Spectra over because she needs to know certain things now that she is a member of newman media.

Adam: What kind of things?

Sally: About your son and what is going on between you and his mother.

Adam: Hmm. And why would you talk to her about connor?

Victor: Because I think she needs to know the whole situation.

Sally: Apparently, he doesn’t trust you to communicate this information yourself.

Victor: Now that you have all the information, I hope you make good use of it.

Sally: Am I being dismissed now that you’ve put me in my place?

Adam: Sally, you — you should go.

Sally: Thank you for the scotch.

Victor: You’re quite welcome.

[ Glass thuds ]

Adam: Why? Why did you feel compelled to dump all of this on her?

Victor: Son, I’ve been around, okay? I know that type. She’s a climber, social climber.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Victor: She’s trying to cozy up to you at the risk of pissing me off. And she hopes to come out on top. The question is, what is your motivation? You have talked for months about turning over a new leaf, to become a good father to connor. So, what the hell happened?

Sharon: My relationship with adam has changed significantly.

Nick: But adam is still a part of your life. Looks like he always will be. And rey knows that?

Sharon: Rey and I are as open and honest with each other as possible. And we get through the day like any other couple does. You understand. Things can’t be all smooth sailing with phyllis.

Nick: Actually, it kind of is right now.

Sharon: What’s different?

Nick: I don’t know. I stopped putting the brakes on her meddling. I stopped giving her ultimatums. I know phyllis means well, so I’m just trying to roll with it.

Sharon: You make that sound so easy.

Nick: I mean, it’s easier ’cause I made a choice to accept her for who she is. Oh, I know you have something to say about that.

Sharon: I just think — and all couples are different, but when a couple breaks up and then they get back together, things can be different for them. They can be better. I mean, as long as both of them agree on what they want. And it sounds like, uh, you and phyllis have that. It sounds like things are really good.

Nick: I know you a little too well. There’s something else on your mind. What is it you’re not saying?

Jack: Listen to me closely.

Phyllis: Thank you.

Jack: I don’t need you to fix this or tell me to look on the bright side. God, if anybody tells me that, I don’t know what I’M…

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? I’m not gonna tell you that. I’m not gonna be the one to tell you to look on the bright side. Okay? I just want to talk to you and — and listen to you.

Jack: Being lonely is embarrassing.

Phyllis: No, it’s not.

Jack: It is.

Phyllis: It’s human.

Jack: I’m telling you, it feels like I’ve failed at life. I don’t know where it went wrong exactly, but after a big, full life, I find myself completely alone.

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? You’re not alone. You have so many people who love you, myself included. That doesn’t preclude you from feeling lonely. I understand that. I mean, my goodness, you can feel so alone in a family. You can feel alone in a relationship. That’s just life. You know? We’re born alone. We die alone.

Jack: [ Laughs ] Is this supposed to be a pep talk?

[ Both laugh ]

Phyllis: It’s a reality check. I mean, I think that’s why we try so hard to create relationships — you know what I mean? — And connections with people.

[ Sighs ] That’s why we work so hard at romance.

Jack: Why we start a romance with the wrong person, hoping they’ll magically turn into the right person?

Phyllis: Exactly. Are you talking about sally? She’s definitely the wrong person, but sally is so thoroughly sally, I don’t know who you were hoping she would turn out to be.

Jack: You want an honest answer? I guess I was hoping she’d turn into you.

[ “The addams family” theme playing ]

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Sally: Set me up with the best scotch you got.

Matt: Sure thing. What’s the special occasion?

Sally: I am moving up in the world.

Matt: Oh, yeah?

Sally: Yes. It appears as though I’ve officially become the target of the newmans. Nikki newman ripped into me at the launch party for the company that I am now working for, and victor newman just summoned me to his home. Yeah, he did that thing that rich and powerful men do when they want something from you, only it’s supposed to feel like your idea. In this case, he wants me to stop seeing his son. Not that we’re seeing each other in that kind of way.

Matt: His father apparently thinks otherwise.

Sally: [ Sighs ] I am not sure what to think anymore. To my boss’s father. The jerk.

Adam: You are overreacting to the situation with sally. I assume that you resent her because of, uh, everything that went down with summer.

Victor: Son, this isn’t about summer. This is about a grasping social climber who was kicked out of L.A., Fired by lauren, and is now latching on to you to use you.

Adam: She’s not using me. I’d never that happen.

Victor: The situation between you and chelsea is not the best. Connor is in an emotionally fragile state. He doesn’t know whether he’s coming or going between the two of you. I mean, he’s confused now. He feels the tension between father and mother.

Adam: I’m in tune with what is going on with him. And it has nothing to do with sally.

Victor: I’ve been impressed with your demeanor both professionally and privately. But you’re slipping now. You’re going back to your old ways. You’re gallivanting with that dame around town, rubbing it in people’s faces, trying to elicit some kind of reaction, not thinking about the consequences.

Adam: I — connor is first and foremost in my mind. I will protect my child always. Okay? I don’t need you to go behind my back and micromanage my life. That is you slipping into old behaviors. It’s you trying to control me in the same way that has driven us apart in the past.

Victor: [ Sighs ]

Nick: Come on. Tell me what you’re really thinking. We’re being honest here, right?

Sharon: It’s nothing all that deep. I mean, you said it yourself. You chose the kind of relationship you wanted to have with phyllis, what you wanted it to be like this time and what you didn’t want it to be like. Less of the crazy intensity you had last time and — well, at least the kind that would make you put your fist through a wall.

Nick: Yeah. Wound up hurting a lot of people I care about, particularly you.

Sharon: I didn’t bring it up to talk about us. We don’t have to revisit that.

Nick: Alright, maybe it’s just, you know — I don’t know — phyllis and I are older and wiser now. Maybe we’ve found a way to be in a relationship in a more serene way ’cause, you know, we get each other and it doesn’t have to be complicated.

Sharon: I agree. It doesn’t have to be complicated. But I understand why you would choose something easy and comfortable.

Nick: Whoa. Okay, so, you’re saying I’m looking for the path of least resistance. It’s not real love and commitment.

Sharon: No. I didn’t mean that.

Nick: But something’s missing. That I’m settling?

Phyllis: Well, sally could never be me.

Jack: [ Laughs ]

Phyllis: Not on her best day could she be me.

[ Chuckles ] You don’t want another me.

Jack: Oh, don’t be so sure of that.

Phyllis: Oh, I’m sure of it. There’s a reason our marriage didn’t work out.

Jack: Yeah, we went through a lot, more than our share of heartache, but also some great times. Some of the best times in my life. And you are still the most captivating, fascinating woman I have never known…and sometimes so gorgeous, it hurts.

Phyllis: Jack —

Jack: No, let me finish. You are also complicated and frustrating and hot-headed and careless and…

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Yeah.

Jack: But all in all, a pretty spectacular package.

Phyllis: Ah. Well, you have had too much to drink.

Jack: You know, I keep thinking maybe — maybe the fact that we’ve spent so much time together lately, I… maybe the reason I didn’t move on with my romantic life was… ’cause I already was with the most amazing woman I’ve ever known. Maybe you set the bar too high, red.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Listen, I don’t — I don’t think you should say things that you might not mean.

Jack: I’m not saying this because I’ve had too much to drink. I’m saying it because it’s true. I have never stopped loving you. And I don’t think I ever will. Come on. You can’t be that shocked.

Phyllis: I don’t know what to say.

Jack: Let me be clear about this. I’m not acting on any of these feelings. I know our time is over. I know you’ve moved on. Life has moved on. I know you’re happy with…

Phyllis: With nick. That’s a fact.

Jack: Well, here’s another fact. I still love you… truly, deeply. And I have to live with that. I can’t stop it. It won’t go away.

Give every morning a

fresh start

Sharon: I didn’t mean to imply that you were settling with phyllis.

Nick: You sure about that?

Sharon: Yeah. I was just making an observation.

Nick: Ah, but you said “comfortable” and “easy.” I mean, don’t take this the wrong way, but could I say the same thing about you and your relationship with rey?

Sharon: Rey and I — you know, we get each other, like you and phyllis do. And, you know, it’s good to share trust and friendship in any relationship. In my opinion, it’s very important. And I’m glad that you and phyllis have gotten to that point and that you’re happy — ’cause that’s all that matters, that you’re happy.

Nick: Well, I’m happy that you’re happy.

Sharon: I got to go. It’s getting late. Hey, um… you want to help me close up?

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Wow. Um…

Sharon: [ Laughs ]

Nick: You know what? Sure. I’ve done it a hundred times. I know the drill.

Phyllis: Okay, here’s some water. I want you to hydrate or else —

[ Glass thuds ]

[ Door closes ]

Sally: Well, adam, your loss. Could have been fun.

[ Glass thuds ]

[ Sighs ]

Adam: My father made his point. Now I want to make mine.

[ Door bangs ]

[ Both breathing heavily ]

[ Door slams ] Sally… sally…

Adam: Sally? Sally? Sally! Hey.

Sally: [ Clears throat ]

Adam: Are you so mad that you’re pretending not to hear me?

Sally: No, I —

[ Clears throat ] Just distracted. So, why are you here? Still fresh

Adam: [ Sighs ] I’m really sorry about my father, the way that he called you over to the house and the things that he said.

Sally: Yeah. I admit, it felt a little bit like being called to the principal’s office.

Adam: [ Sighs ] He was totally out of line.

Sally: I’m really glad that you feel that way.

Adam: [ Sighs ] But when we were alone, he got me to really look at the situation, and I have re-evaluated.

Sally: Re-evaluated what, exactly?

Adam: I don’t think that we should see each other outside of the office anymore.

Sally: “Should.”

[ Scoffs ] That’s a word that I have eliminated from my vocabulary. You either choose to do something or you don’T. There is no “should” or “shouldn’T.” No acting a certain way because that’s what’s expected of you.

Jack: [ Sighs ]

Sally: You decide what you want, no matter how people are going to react. No matter how far outside it is from what’s considered “socially acceptable.” And if people don’t like it? That’s their problem. To hell with ’em.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


portia: You’re not the only one with secrets, jordan. I got one, too. And it’s so bad. Trina doesn’t know the truth about her father… …who he really is. I — and I waited way too long to tell her.

[ Sniffles ] Jordan, I don’t want to leave you… but I need to get us some help. Brook lynn, why are we still waiting? My appointment is over. What’s the hurry? Better question — what’s the point of sticking around?

[ Sighs ] That right there. You are gonna go follow him. Go. Wait. W-why am I following him? And what do I do if he sees me? You say something nice. Oh, I know — ask him for coffee. What? A-are you trying to set me up with austin?

[ Clears throat ] Are you thinking about jake’s? Jake’S. That time in our lives. Sorry I took off like that. Nah, it’s fine. I had spinelli track your phone. I hope you don’t mind. I wasn’t hiding. I’m just…nostalgic. I’m not even sure if that describes this feeling. Mm-hmm. What is it? What’s — what’s going on? It started the other night at the pool when… we were dancing. I, uh — I was, like, right back here. At jake’S. Dancing with you. Feeling everything I used to feel. And it scared me. Who do you think you are coming here, talking about the truth?! You lied to nina. You betrayed nina.

This is the truth, our truth. That’s all we need to know. Nina, what you’re doing is wrong. This is… what do you think nina’s doing?! What — don’t you get it by now?! You’re not mike, and she knows it!

You know, when you offered to come with me to my postpartum appointment, I thought, “wow. She’s really being a good friend.” But, no, as usual, you have an ulterior motive. Of course I do. I am a quartermaine. Okay? And this was a doctor’s appointment, not exactly a night out on the town. Okay. Fair point. Thank you. And now that we know that you have a clean bill of health, you have to go and spend some time with austin. No, I don’T. I don’t understand what the problem is, maxie. Yes, you do! He delivered your baby. He was in the woods with us that night when you gave me your daughter to protect her from peter. Which is exactly what we don’t want austin to remember, so stop pushing me in austin’s direction. He might be a good distraction for you. You know? He could lift your spirits a little bit. Okay. My spirits are fine. They are not. Okay? And spending time with a guy who thinks you’re charming might be the perfect little pick-me-up. Somebody help!

[ Pounding ] Please! Somebody help! Jordan, I’m begging you to keep breathing. Please. Someone will hear us. We’re not gonna die down here. Somebody!

[ Pounding ] Somebody, please! First of all, I am so not ready for another man in my life, and if I was, it certainly wouldn’t be austin, because I’ve had to listen to you go on and on and on and on… about austin and his claims on elq, how he could possibly side with valentin and prevent your father from becoming ceo again.

[ Gasps ] That’s it, isn’t it?! What’s up? How did you put it? You had an “ace in the hole” when it came to austin? You were talking about me, weren’t you? Oh, my god! Hey, hey, hey. How long you been here? Too long! Have you seen leo? I can’t find him! You don’t want to know your real name? What for? I told you. This is my life now. I don’t want anything to change that. So you don’t care that you have a whole family out there who love and miss you? You know what? Yeah, I-I’ve thought about it. I could have been digging a little deeper, but I haven’T. And why didn’t you? That family that you mentioned who love me and miss me so much — where are they? How come they haven’t come looking for me? I don’t know. Nina, what do you think? What do you think mike’s family hasn’t come looking for him? You have no business butting into our business. You lied to nina. You chose your ex-wife over her. You have no right to come here and accuse her of anything! And you have no idea. I may not know who I was, but I know who I am now. And I know nina. Jax: Hm. And she’s been nothing but good to me. She’s my life. Jax. Jax! Leave it alone. Okay? Just leave us alone. Please. Can you just do this one last thing for me? I’m sorry, nina. I can’T. Mike… I need to talk to jax alone. You know, ever since we started talking about the wedding, even before we actually decided, it’s like you’ve been in this fight with yourself. Because I have been. I know why we should marry. I know it’s the best way to keep the family safe. I know it’s great from a business standpoint, but… would sonny want this? I mean, sonny… sonny’s gone. And I miss him every day. But this is about us. We’re the ones getting married, carly. If that’s still what we want. What — are — are you backing out? No. No. I’m just saying that… I mean, we do have the option of calling it off. What about the five families? There would be huge fallout. Wouldn’t be good, but I’ll deal with it. Look, the business is important. But who we are to each other is more important.

no, I don’t think it’s a good idea to leave you alone with him. Mike. I’ll be fine. All right. Are you sure? Because when I came in here, you seemed a little upset. Maybe he’s the one that should go. Before he gets shot again. I’m still the same person I was before. Why do you say that like it’s a good thing? Mike, stop. This isn’t you. This — this isn’t the man that I’ve come to know… and love. Oh, now you’re gonna… use the “l” word, right, to soften me up? Is it working? Not — well, maybe a little bit. Just come on. Let me straighten it out. I’ll get him to understand how much we mean to each other. Okay? All right. I’m gonna go. No. No, no, no. What? In the back? No, you just can’t be in the back. You know that’s not gonna help. Come on. Let me work it out. Trust me. I do trust you, with my life. But I don’t know what he’s capable of. Jax — he just — he wants what’s best for me, right? You mean what he thinks is best for you? Exactly my point, and I’m gonna help him understand that we get to choose what’s best for us, don’t we? And I can’t do that if I’m gonna be worried that you’re gonna bust in here any second to try to rescue me. I know you’re perfectly capable of rescuing yourself, since you did rescue me, right? You do anything to nina, and you’re gonna have to answer to me. I had a feeling you might say that. Trust that feeling. Okay.

[ Door opens and closes ] How long have you been keeping sonny from his family? Jordan? Jordan, answer me! Jordan! Portia: Curtis! Curtis, I’m right here! We’re trapped in the basement!

[ Pounding ] Curtis! Hey, what the hell? Jordan’s unconscious. She has a head wound. You’re gonna have to carry her out. Oh. Oh. Be careful. There’s a gas leak.

[ Coughing ] Yeah. You gonna be okay? Can you make it outside? Oh, I’m fine. Just hurry. Come on, jordan.

[ Portia coughing ] You’re gonna be okay. All right? You’re gonna be okay. Okay? I got you… ned, breathe. Don’t worry. We’re gonna find him. It’s a big hospital. He could be anywhere. Okay. I just spoke with hospital security. They are all over finding leo, dad. Thank you. Thank you. I mean, I-I turned my back for like 10, 15 seconds to talk to the pediatrician upstairs, and then I turned back around, he was gone. Kids do that. I think georgie can teleport. Yeah, well, with spinelli as a dad, I’m not surprised. Look. He’s gonna be fine. I hope you’re right. Okay. I got to call olivia. Brook lynn: Okay.

[ Door opens ] Hey, leo. How you doing? I like this. I thought you might. And you were so brave when you were here the other day and took your tetanus shot. How’s your finger? Good. You know, leo, you’re not scheduled to visit me today. Does your mom know you’re here? What about your stepdad? No. I came to nixon falls because I wanted to see my friend phyllis. I know why you came here. No. Please don’t interrupt me. You want to know what happened, right? And I am trying really hard to tell you. Fine. Go ahead. I was really hurt and heartbroken when I found out what you and carly did to me, that you hid the identity of my daughter. And I’m really sorry that I made a scene at sonny’s funeral, and I am really sorry that I confused wiley. Yeah, speaking of wiley — no, you don’t have to tell me that wiley is sonny’s grandchild. I already know that. Yeah, somehow you’ve justified keeping sonny from his grandson. I will get to that, okay? Okay. So… I came to nixon falls to be with phyllis ’cause she is the person who cares about me, and she doesn’t judge me. And then I saw her, I was on my way out of town, and then I ran into sonny. I couldn’t believe it. Just like you did right now. And then after talking to him, I realized that he lost his memory, and the only clue to his identity was his watch — that he still wears right now — and it said, “to mike, never enough time. Love, A.” And now he calls himself mike. His watch and his father’s name. Nina, when you realized that sonny was alive, why didn’t you tell carly? Carly: Don’t do that. Don’t put yourself in an impossible situation just to make things easier for me. Why — why wouldn’t I? I mean, look where we’re standing. It’s jake’S. It’s where it all began. I mean, you’re the first friend that I made on my own who knew nothing about who I was before the accident. And you always talk about everything I do for you, but why don’t we talk about everything you did for me? You accepted me. You believed in me. You fought for me. I sure did that. Yeah. And I don’t know who I would be if I hadn’t met you, carly. I’m just lucky that I did. I trust you. I trust your instincts. And if you think we shouldn’t get married, then… we shouldn’t do it.

-Come on. Okay. Come on. -Okay. Jordan, hear me? Come on back. Come back. Okay. I got this. Here. Move. Oh. -Hey. -Mr. Quartermaine, we haven’t been able to locate leo yet, but we’re actively looking. All right. Um, should we bring in the police? I think you guys might be looking for somebody. -Oh… -leo. Leo! Oh, my god. Leo. I’ve been looking all over for you. You found him. Actually, leo found me. He was waiting for me in the exam room where I gave him the tetanus shot ’cause he wanted to tell me how much he liked his fidget spinner. Hey. Hey, buddy. Why didn’t you tell me you were gonna go over there? Because I wanted to see dr. Austin! Jax, i did call carly. The second that I found out what was happening to sonny, I tried to tell her. I tried to tell her. Before I could get one word in, she just lit into me. She said that if I sued for any rights to see wiley, that she would dredge up every horrible thing that I’ve ever done in my life. She was relentless, jax! She just kept pounding the hammer on my coffin just over and over and over! And I just couldn’t take it anymore! I knew it was wrong! I know I should have told her, jax, but I couldn’t!

[ Sobs ] And at that moment, I just, like — I — I couldn’t bring myself to even care! Mnh. Jax: Let me get this straight. You kept quiet out of revenge? No. No, I — well — y-yes. Maybe at the moment, I did. W-what about the other moments? Like when I came to visit you here in nixon falls? Or when you went back to port charles because I arranged the — the visit with wiley for you. I mean, how — how can you just stand there holding wiley in your arms when you knew that you were keeping sonny from his entire family? They were still grieving him! How could you do that? A-and for all those months. It doesn’t feel wrong to marry you, jason. I know you’re gonna treat me with respect and you’re gonna be great to my kids. And you never lie to me. I know all that about you. It’s not a question if you’ll be a good husband. I know you’re gonna be a great husband. The problem is jake’S. You know? What — what’s the — what about it? I fell in love with you back then. And the other night, I realized I… I could fall in love with you all over again. So you don’t care that you have a whole family out there who love and miss you? Sonny: That family that you mentioned who love me and miss me so much — where are they? How come they haven’t come looking for me? Jax: Don’t you get it by now?! You’re not mike, and she knows it! I tried to come clean with carly. I thought about coming clean with carly when I went to port charles. And why didn’t you? Because I was — I was visiting wiley, and then she shows up again, and then all of a sudden my visitation is over, it’s wiley’s bedtime, and enough with playing with grandma nina. And then I thought, “you know, back in nixon falls, there’s — there’s this really lovely man, and he’s waiting for me.” Sonny. Mike. -They’re the same person, nina. -No, they’re not. No, they’re not, because sonny is this ruthless mob boss, and mike, he’s different. He’s just a simple guy who wants what he has here, the simple life with his friends phyllis and lenny. And you. And me. Have you told him that you know who he is? That the answers he seeks a-are right in front of him? Why haven’t you told him? Bec– because it — I’ve thought about it a lot of times, but if I told him, then he would look up who he was and he would discover all the crimes that sonny has committed. And even though sonny was okay with it, “mike” wouldn’t be able to live with it. It would change him. Or he might want to return to his old life, whether he remembers it or not. But you didn’t want that, right? Because y-you’re in love with mike. I a– I am. And f-from what I’ve heard, sonny corinthos isn’t a very good guy. I agree with you there. But mike, he’s a good man. He’s devoted and kind. And I got something from mike that I have never gotten from any man — honesty. And how much honesty have you given mike in return? Do you have any idea what a difficult decision this has been for me every single day? But — okay. So the question here is this, jax. Who is better for this world — sonny corinthos, who kills people, or sweet, kind mike? It’s not your decision to make. Okay? ‘Cause there is no mike. There’s only sonny corinthos. And he’s married to carly. But sonny found himself here, who he truly is. He’s mike, and he’s happy, and I’m — jax. I’m happy. Do you want to take that away from me? Again?

As leo with you beforeyou decided to tell someone? 58 seconds. Oh, and my stepbrother just happens to go missing and then shows up with you? Oh, I know this one. You’re implying something. Just that it’s kind of convenient. I mean, you’re trying to ingratiate yourself in my family… our family. …And leo just goes missing, and as soon as we’re about to call the cops, you just show up like you’re the hero? -Brook lynn. -What? Austin treated leo for the cut on his finger a few weeks ago. Leo liked him, so it makes sense that he would seek him out. I just wish you would have asked me first. Yeah, I imagine that you do. That’s just leo being leo. It is just leo being leo. Hey, ned, can I talk to you for a second? Sure. Can you keep an eye on houdini here? Maxie: Yeah, absolutely. Hey, so, I have something here that I think you might get a little kick out of. You just kind of go like that and then you go like that. That’s pretty cool, huh? Her breathing is getting better, but she isn’t regaining consciousness. She got more of whatever was down in that basement than I did. Jordan’s only got one kidney. This has to be making things worse. The gas could put her in danger of renal failure, and the one kidney that she has may be compromised. We have to get her to a hospital right now. Yeah. Right. -I’ll hold her head, okay? -Okay. Come on, jordan. -Come on. -It’s okay. -If this is about elq… -no, no, this is way more important than anything to do with elq. You may recall that I asked olivia to bring leo back in to see me. I do, but olivia thought leo was okay, so I just took him to see his own pediatrician for the all-clear. His finger seems to have healed up nicely. Yeah, it looks great. I didn’t need to see leo about the cut. Then…why did you want a follow-up? I was so surprised when I fell in love with you. I’m so busy chasing after tony and lying to A.J. And… one day, it dawned on me that you were the one I wanted, and I was so, so in love with you. And, of course, I had to get you to fall in love with me, which wasn’t easy because your guard was up, but… little by little, I found a way. And we were so close. Then I slept with sonny, and… everything changed. You left port charles. Sonny and I fell in love. When you came back, those feelings that I felt, I couldn’t let myself feel them, so I locked them away, and I wouldn’t let myself even think about them. I mean, to the point where i really believed they were gone. But now I’m starting to feel them again. I mean, I’m not in love with you yet… but I’m on my way. And I just can’t go there alone. Nina: This watch is evidence of the life that you used to have. You can’t give yourself fully to me until you go out there and you learn everything you can learn about who you used to be before you came to nixon falls. I don’t want to do that. I told you. Until you do… I can’t give you all of me.

[ Exhales deeply ] All I ever wanted is for you to be happy. Good. Then can you leave and forget what you saw here? Oh, I wish I could. I honestly mean that. Everyone at home is grieving sonny. And with his absence from port charles, it’s put everyone in danger, including josslyn. What do you mean? Josslyn’s in danger? You asked me a little while ago, is the world better off with sonny or mike? And it pains me to say this… but port charles needs sonny corinthos. But I thought that wiley and josslyn and everne else would be safer with sonny gone. No, nina. Nina, nina, you have no idea what you’ve done and the lives that you’ve changed, the things you’ve set in motion.

I observed some behavior in leo that I think warrants some attention. What behavior? Oh, no. There’s no cause for concern, ned. Not at all. I just want to observe the kid a little bit more. Why? Do you think there’s something wrong with leo? No, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with anyone. I just — I think that leo could really benefit from seeing a specialist. In what? Well, every human being is different, right? And every child is different because every child is different. And I’ve seen a lot of kids. And what I’m trying to articulate to you is that I think leo would really enjoy learning a more effective way of communicating. At least discuss it with olivia. Actually… I have. I have mentioned that, uh… leo’S…quietness, I guess you could call it, concerns me sometimes. But olivia, she won’t hear it. Well, then, cousin ned, you need to try again. Right? Because some kids really, really benefit from treatment. For…introversion? If he’s shy, then he’s shy, right? But it could be something else. It could be a whole range of other things, and none of them are bad. In fact, this is great. What human being doesn’t deserve the right to learn the skills that help them to connect to the world just a little bit better? Okay. I’ll — I’ll talk to olivia about it. Great. Tell her to reach out to me if she has any questions, and the same goes for you. All right. Hey, and, ned… this has nothing to do with anything other than leo. Nothing at all.

[ Door closes ] Austin is clearly into you. So you keep saying. Yeah, to me, he may be an interloper, but you may see him in a different light. Okay. Let’s stop pretending that this has anything to do with me, because it obviously doesn’T. You would do anything to protect your family business. Exhibit “a” — faking a pregnancy to help save elq from valentin. Hey. No, no, no. I get it. It’s what the quartermaines do. But my pregnancy-faking days are over, and I’m not a quartermaine, so I don’t want to get mixed up in whatever plan it is that you have next. Just invite austin to carly and jason’s wedding. Okay? Just spend a little time with him. Dip your toe in the water. What harm could that do? Okay. Thank you for looking after leo. Yeah, of course. Hey, buddy. Let’s go. Let’s go home. So, uh, did austin try to weasel his way into the family business or what? Something like that. Yeah. Here we go. Okay. All the cards are out on the table. Can you please just spend a little bit of time with him, see where it goes? Can you please do that for me, maxie?

[ Groans ] Nina: There are a million reasons why we should not be together, and with all those reasons and the fear that what we have together could collapse when you find out who you really are… with all of that, I still can’t stay away from you. And if that isn’t love… I don’t know what is. What are you saying? I’m saying that I love you, too, mike. Jax: When sonny disappeared, his business became vulnerable. And by extension, so did carly and the family, and that includes josslyn. Well, I don’t know the ins and outs of the mob business, but I just assumed that jason could handle things and that carly would benefit from that. Okay, you read about cyrus renault? Well, things escalated from there. And jason was either behind bars or on the run, so carly felt like she needed to take over the family business. A-and carly’s only way to maintain power or keep this illusion of peace is by marrying jason. Well, you told me that they were engaged, jax, but I thought it was just for show. I didn’t expect that they’d actually get married. Well, it’s happening. And it’s a little tricky because the bride-to-be is already married to a guy who’s alive and well and being hidden here by you. Carly: I know myself. So if we just stop and we take a step back and we tell everyone that we reconsidered and we’re not gonna get married, I mean, it might be awkward for a little while, but we’ll be fine because I cherish your friendship and I can’t live without your friendship. A-and the butterflies that I’m feeling, they’ll just eventually go away. But if we get married and I keep falling, I’m not gonna stop. And then when you don’t return the feelings… I’m gonna be angry, resentful, and hurt, and I can’t have that between us, so…

[ Sighs ] Why, uh, do you assume that you would be falling alone?

you know, this is very disconcerting. What is? You and this plan. What plan? I-I’m simply encouraging you to spend time with a guy who’s clearly interested. That right there, that is exactly what I’m talking about. Okay? You are pretending like there is no plan when there is obviously a plan. I mean, it’s like, on one hand, you are this total lifesaver. I mean, you’re — you’re great with the baby. You are keeping her safe. You’re loving and protective. My pleasure. And just when I think that I can relax because everything is under control, you start plotting and — and scheming all over these stupid elq shares. First of all, they are not stupid elq shares, okay? They are very valuable, and they are also my great-grandfather’s legacy. Second of all, who are you to talk to me — or anyone, for that matter — about scheming, miss schemer mcschemerson? You could teach a master class. Okay. I am scheming to save my baby. Yeah, it’s still a scheme. That’s okay. They are not mutually exclusive. Says the woman with a blatant ulterior motive. Okay, you know, it is possible that I can love and protect bailey while also wanting to safeguard my family and the company. And by “safeguard,” you mean cut austin out. Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe — maybe austin’s a really nice guy who has a legitimate claim, but you know what would

really help me out? If someone I trust — I don’t know, like you — would spend a little time with him. Okay. Fine. Fine! Thank you. I will do it. Thank you. But if my being around austin just happens to jog his memory about what happened in the woods the night louise was born… I’m gonna blame you. And I will take full responsibility. Whatever that means. -[ Gasps ] Austin. -No, thank you. No, no, no. We didn’t offer you anything. Oh, what you have to offer me is unfounded accusations, but I’m all full up. I’ve had enough for today. Try again tomorrow. Okay. Definitely. And in the meantime, maxie has something she wants to say to you. Maxie? Oh. [ Chuckles ] Well, I, um… maxie, it’s okay. I understand. You told me not to bother you again, and I won’T. No, it’s no bother. I was wondering if you would like to attend the wedding of the century — and by that, I mean the wedding of carly corinthos and jason morgan. I actually planned most of it, and it came out really nice, if I do say so myself. Weddings aren’t my thing. Really? I mean, you could be my plus-one. Curtis: We need some help here!

[ Portia coughing ] So nny: I may not know who I was,but I know who I am now. And I know nina. And she’s been nothing but good to me. She’s my life.

[ Exhales deeply ] As far as carly knows, she’s a widow, jax, and she’s not too far off. The man that carly married is gone. Mike doesn’t even know her, and he doesn’t fit in her glamorous life any more than she fits in his. Okay. No. There’s no justifying this, nina. There — there’s no rationalizing this. So much damage has been done because of your lies. And if you keep this secret about sonny, if you continue it, things are only gonna get worse. Well, what do you expect me to do, jax? He doesn’t know who he is! Because you haven’t told him! You have to come clean. You got to make this right. You have to tell sonny who he is right now. Because the wedding is tonight. I did fall in love with you when michael was a baby. And then, uh — then you were with sonny. And I would only let myself see you as a friend. A friend who I loved. And a friend that I would die for. And that’s how I could justify putting you first. Because I wasn’t “in love” with you or it wasn’t about having you. But now… you know, feelings are coming back. And it’s like you said. We can stop it right now, and it’d just be awkward for a little while, and it’s gonna pass because we’ve definitely been through worse. Yeah. [ Chuckles ] Or we can get married. For real. Spend the rest of our lives together. Can you make that promise? Yes, I can. You’re not just saying that because you think you should? I’m saying it because it’s true.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Rafe: I still have a pic of the perp’s license plate on my phone. I’ll text it to you as soon as I hang up. Okay.

[Cell phone beeps

Nicole: I just–I thought that you could be good for her, and you haveeen, and you wanna know what else I see?

Rafe: Hmm?

Nicole: She’s been good for you. And I do not want to get in the way of that. I really don’T.

Rafe: Okay, look, you just ended your marriage.

Nicole: And you and ava just started something. And it’s like I just said to you. This is working for you and for her, and I just think that–I just think that you both should see where it could go. What happened that night was not your fault. I made a choice, and I’m–

[Sighs] I am making a choice now. I will miss you like crazy, but I can’t see you for a while. It’S…it’s best this way.

Ava: You look like you lost your best friend.

Paulina: Everyone in this town thinks of me as your great auntie paulina, but you can call me grandma. Don’t forget. It’s our little secret. Oh! I didn’t hear you come in.

Abe: Yeah, I know. What did you just say?

Brady: Lani.

Lani: Hey.

Brady: What is going on? Why are the cops here?

Chloe: No one will tell us anything.

Lani: Well, I am so sorry to be the one to tell you this, but there was a murder here tonight.

Chloe: Oh, god.

Brady: Not my granddad.

Chloe: Not philip.

[Knock at door]

Gabi: Ugh, you know what? I’ll just– philip, what are you doing here?

Philip: Why the hell are you spying on me?

Gabi: What are you talking about?

Philip: My laptop froze up tonight, so I took it to it to get checked out. Guess what they found? A keylogger! And I know it was you that put it there.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]


Lani: No. The victim’s name was calista lockhart.

Brady: Lockhart?

Lani: Bonnie’s sister-in-law.

Brady: David lockhart had a sister?

Lani: Apparently. She was shot upstairs in justin’s bedroom.

Brady: Do they know who killed her?

Lani: We took bonnie in for questioning, but that’s all I can tell you at the moment.

Chloe: Oh, my god. Justin and bonnie were supposed to get married today.

Brady: Yep.

Lani: Things didn’t go as planned. Typical salem wedding.

Chloe: Is the–is the body still upstairs?

Lani: No.

Chloe: Okay, well, I’m gonna go talk to philip then.

Lani: Oh, no. He’s not there.

Chloe: Do you know where he is?

Lani: I don’T. I was actually on my way out. The csi is wrapping things up, and they shouldn’t be there much longer.

Chloe: Okay. Thanks, lani.

Lani: I am so sorry for ruining your homecoming.

Chloe: Oh, my goodness. I cannot believe that a woman was murdered down the hall from my bedroom.

Brady: Which is exactly why you’re gonna come home with me tonight.

Eli: Hey.

Rafe: Hey.

Eli: We just booked bonnie lockhart. She’s in a holding cell. Man, that woman is a piece of work. Did she really think that she could hide a dead body in her fiancé’s bed, and no one would find out?

Rafe: Oh, come on. You can’t use the work “think” and bonnie in the same sentence.

Eli: I guess that’s true. Well, at least it all blew up before the ceremony. Justin dodged a bullet.

Rafe: And I guess the sister-in-law can’t say the same thing, huh?

Eli: [Mimics gunshot]

Rafe: Yeah. All right, listen, thanks again for handling that. I know that both you and lani were done with work and I called you back in, so I appreciate it, and I hope I didn’t pull you away from anything important.

Eli: No, no, we were just having dinner with paulina and abe.

Rafe: Oh. Sorry.

Eli: It’s all good. If anything, they were thrilled that we left and they got to spend some alone time with the twins.

Paulina: Oh. I thought you were doing the dishes.

Abe: Well, they’re done. So what did you say to the babies?

Paulina: Oh, you know, nighty-night, sleep tight.

Abe: I thought I heard you call yourself grandma.

Paulina: I did?

Abe: You did.

Paulina: Well, I, um– I guess I did.

Abe: Paulina, you know that you’re their great aunt and their grandmothers are valerie and tamara.

Paulina: I know that.

Abe: But why did you tell the– why’d you tell the kids to call you grandma?

Paulina: Abraham, I have a confession to make. I order my groceries online now.

Ava: Mind if I join you for a drink?

Nicole: Yeah, okay.

Ava: Great. I will catch up, and then I will pick up the next round.

Nicole: Oh, well, then please have a seat.

Ava: Thanks.

[Both laugh] Oh, and if things go according to plan, I will be able to get you your drinks for free in the near future.

Nicole: Really?

Ava: Yeah, well, I just–I’m hoping that julie will hire me as her new chef here. I just dropped off my résumé in her office.

Nicole: Oh, I thought you wanted me to hire you at basic black.

Ava: I did. But I just–I think it would be awkward given the circumstances.

Nicole: Ava, I think you’re using “circumstances” as a euphemism. What you think might be awkward is working for a woman who you thought tried to steal your man.

Eli: Nice picture.

Rafe: I was looking for a photo for the myers case, and it just kinda popped up. Okay?

Eli: Right.

Rafe: Don’t you have some paperwork to do?

Eli: No, no. My desk is clear. What’s up with you, though? Any more conversations with duke?

Rafe: I am deeply sorry that I ever shared that with you.

Eli: [Laughs] Look, man, I’m glad you felt comfortable enough to share it with me.

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Eli: Seriously, man, you have a picture of you and nicole on your phone. You’re in a crappy mood. What, is ava still ticked off about you and nicole?

Rafe: No, actually. She’s not.

Eli: No?

Rafe: No. Because nicole and i are not gonna be seeing each other anymore.

Paulina: I’m sorry, but I need liquid courage.

Abe: Paulina? Are you okay?

Paulina: Not really. The reason that I wanted the babies to call me grandma is because… of tonight’s dinner.

Abe: Chicken milanese made you feel like a grandmother?

Paulina: Sort of. Sort of. I mean, when you got here this evening, I thought it was gonna be a disaster, but you were great. You started pulling food out of the fridge.

[Chuckles] And it was so much fun helping you cook. And then when eli and lani got here with those babies, you know, and, you know, spending time with our shared family just felt so comfortable, so right, and it got me thinking about the future and how you and I might get married someday.

Abe: Married?

Paulina: Yeah. That’s why, you know, I wanted them to call me grandma. Then I’d be their grandmother. By marriage, of course.

Abe: Of course.

Paulina: So that’s why I said they could call me grandma. You know me, always jumping the gun. Be good if you said something right about now. Abraham?

Chloe: Why would I go home with you?

Brady: Well, she just said that a woman was murdered right down the hall from you.

Chloe: Yeah, but I don’t think the police would let me stay here if there was any sort of danger, and you heard lani. They’ve got bonnie in custody.

Brady: What if justin gets her out? Bonnie seems to be going off the rails right now, and she does not like you at all.

Chloe: Hmm, I don’t really think that she would make bail and then come hunt me down and shoot me because, what, I didn’t get along with mimi in high school?

Brady: All right, well, forget about the physical danger. What about emotional? My god. I mean, you’re gonna try to sleep here tonight? Really? Knowing that a murder happened a couple doors down from you? It’s traumatic, don’t you think?

Chloe: Yeah, yeah. Brady, you–you’re right. Thank you. Thank you so much for being concerned with my mental health. I’m sure that it’s just a coincidence that the remedy proposed would keep me away from philip.

Brady: You really think I’d do something like that?

Chloe: Yeah, I know you’d do something like that. You literally just did something like that.

Brady: All right, all right. It was a stretch. Can’t blame a guy for trying.

Chloe: Yeah, actually, I can. Listen to me, brady. I don’t like being a rope in this tug-of-war between you and philip. It stopped being funny about two decades ago, and I want it to stop. Now.

Gabi: Philip, I have no idea who put that keylogger thing on your computer. I don’t even know what it is!

Philip: That’s too high tech for you? You put an app on your phone so you could remote control julie’s pacemaker. The keylogger’s a piece of cake for you!

Jake: Hey, watch it, okay?

Philip: No, no. She put a device on my computer to record every keystroke I make, and now you’re keeping track of my emails, my passwords, whatever I type?

Jake: You don’t know that.

Philip: I don’t?

Jake: No.

Philip: Well, the first time my laptop froze up was right after I caught you in my office. You said you needed to use mine because yours wasn’t working.

Gabi: It wasn’t, and the monthly reports were due. You said you didn’t mind.

Philip: I would’ve minded if I had known you were installing spyware on my laptop.

Gabi: Philip, I work for you. We’re on the same team.

Philip: Yeah, that’s you, a real team player.

Gabi: Why would I do this?

Philip: To control the company. My mother called, and she said that’s what you two were up to. But it’s over. You’re both fired. Before treating your chronic migraine,

Brady: Chloe, I would love to stop fighting with philip. I really would, and I’m sure that’s gonna happen very soon, as soon as the guy grows up.

Chloe: Oh, you mean like you have? I don’t really see a difference in your behavior now versus when you were in high school.

Brady: Chloe, I’m young at heart.

Chloe: Another one-liner. You know what, everything’s just a joke to you, brady. Especially my relationship with philip.

Brady: You said it, not me.

Chloe: And I don’t think that you see, or maybe you just don’t care, that you are laughing at me. Not with me, but at me.

Brady: No. Hey, that was not my intention.

Chloe: Yes, it was!

Brady: No, I didn’t mean to–

Chloe: You cooked up this whole business trip just to get me away from philip and alone with you. You used my job to make me do what you wanted to do just to one-up philip.

Brady: Chloe, I didn’t cook anything up, first of all. Second of all, it was a legitimate meeting, one in which we crushed, by the way. Thank you. We’re a wonderful team.

Chloe: Yeah, we’re a wonderful team when you’re the owner, the coach, and the quarterback. Listen, you may think that this is some sort of a romantic comedy, but this is my life that you are messing with, and my career, and it is not funny. And how I feel about philip is no concern of yours. That should’ve been your cue to just say “I’m sorry” and go home.

Brady: [Sighs]

Chloe: [Sighs]

Brady: I’m sorry. Chloe, I’M…I’m sorry. I will go. I will go. I just–I wanted to see my grandfather to make sure he was okay.

Chloe: Okay, but make it quick, ’cause I don’t want philip getting back here and us reliving some nightmare scenario like what happened at wilkes-barre.

Brady: As I recall, it was philip that barged in like some outraged husband in some french farce, but, you know– sorry, old habit.

Chloe: Yeah. Very, very old.

Gabi: Philip, you are making a huge mistake. Jake and I had nothing to do with that keylogger.

Philip: Oh, come on, i practically caught you red-handed.

Gabi: I would never betray you like that.

Philip: “I would never betray you like that.” That’s exactly what you did. You see something you want, you’d run over your own grandmother with a tractor to get it.

Gabi: You and I are friends. In fact, we were almost more than that.

Jake: Okay, thanks for the reminder.

Philip: So I’m gonna have your personal effects packed up and sent to you. I believe this is titan property.

Jake: Okay. Wait. Wait, wait. Just a minute. Think about this for a second. Gabi’s computer was acting up, right? That’s why she had to use your computer.

Philip: So she says.

Jake: Okay, so what if somebody put spyware on her computer too? It could be a company-wide hack, and if somebody put spyware on her computer, then that means–that proves that gabi is not the perpetrator but yet another victim. Call it; I’m sure they can check it out remotely.

Gabi: But what if the hacker was just trying to target philip?

Jake: Gabi, we’ve already lost our jobs. We’ve got nothing left to lose. Look, it’s just a theory, but if somebody is trying to hack your company and it’s not us, don’t you think you’d wanna know who it is?

Eli: It sounds like you and ava had a pretty intense fight, huh?

Rafe: Yeah, well, you know ava. She’s pretty easily worked up, and she’s kind of a jealous person, and my sister, gabi, has been poking at her, so yeah. It was intense.

Eli: What happened when you told nicole about the fight?

Rafe: Nicole was actually cool about it. She pretty much saw eye to eye with everything that ava thought.

Eli: Really?

Rafe: Mm-hmm, yeah. So much so that nicole thought it’d be a good idea that we not see each other, you know, until ava and I work things out, which I thought was a little bit extreme, but now I think maybe she’s right. Yeah, ava needs to know that I care about her more than nicole.

Eli: Well, I’m sure ava was happy to hear that.

Rafe: Yeah, she almost didn’t hear it. When I came home, lights at my place were out, and ava was sitting there with her suitcase packed.

Eli: That’s what you wanted to come home to.

Rafe: Mm-hmm. Yeah, yeah. It was the third intense relationship conversation that I had for the day.

Eli: My god. I know you were exhausted and ticked off.

Rafe: Yeah, I was, a little bit at first. You know, ’cause it seemed a little dramatic.

Eli: Mm-hmm.

Rafe: But then actually, I saw how hurt ava was, and she made it clear that she did not want to be with me if I wanted to be with nicole.

Eli: Is that what you told her?

Rafe: Well, I was– I was honest. I told her that my friendship with nicole had, you know, kinda become more than a friendship.

Eli: And how did she take that?

Rafe: Well, not great, as you can imagine, right? But I was able to convince ava that I wanted to be with her, not nicole.

Eli: And was that honest too?

Nicole: Rafe told me what you said about him, about me.

Ava: Look, I never said that–I never thought that you set out to get him, just that the two of you turned into more than just friends.

Nicole: Look, ava, I was nuts. I probably still am. And yes, I leaned on rafe way too much, and that wasn’t fair to you, but rafe was just being a friend to me. That’s all.

Ava: No, it wasn’T.

Nicole: Damn it. Look, rafe had no interest in me romantically. That was all in your head.

Ava: No, it isn’T.

Nicole: All right, you know what? Suddenly, I’m not very thirsty.

Ava: Nicole, it’s true! Rafe told me himself.

Abe: [Exhales]

Paulina: Why won’t you say something?

Abe: Are you thinking about us getting married?

Paulina: I should never have told you. Now I’ve scared you off.

Abe: No. No, you haven’T. The idea has crossed my mind.

Paulina: Are you telling me you wanna marry me? This is the sound of an asthma attack…

Rafe: Yeah, of course I was being honest. I care about ava, and I wanna make things work with her.

Eli: Even if it means giving up on nicole? She’s not married anymore.

Rafe: That doesn’t mean she wants to jump into another relationship. And besides, I don’t even know if she’s interested in this.

Eli: Maybe she is.

Rafe: Doesn’t matter. Okay? I have made up my mind, and that’s it.

Eli: Okay.

Rafe: Okay.

Eli: All right, it is what it is. Look, I’m–I’m happy for you and ava. It just sucks that you had to lose a friend in the process.

Nicole: Rafe said that?

Ava: He said that. I was ready to leave.

Nicole: What?

Ava: Look, I told him that i wanted to be with him, but not if he wanted to be with you. That’s when he admitted that I was right.

Nicole: I didn’t know.

Ava: Yeah. It’s the one time in my life that I wished I had been wrong and that it was actually all in my head.

Nicole: I’m so sorry.

Ava: It’s okay. It’s okay. We talked, honestly for once, and he told me that he would put those feelings behind him and that I was the one he wanted. So we kissed and we made up.

Nicole: Good. I’m glad.

Ava: Yeah. Like I said, you know, it was good because we talked and we were really honest with each other, and I’m just hoping that you and I can do the same thing.

Nicole: What do you mean?

Ava: Nicole, I need to know. How do you feel about rafe?

Brady: You’re right. I should not interfere in your personal business, chloe.

Chloe: Yeah, I know. I am right.

Brady: All right, then I’m just gonna go see if my granddad’s okay.

Chloe: Okay, well, give him my best.

Brady: I’ll do that. Chloe, listen. This is not a ploy. Are you gonna be okay here alone?

Chloe: Yeah. I’m okay.

Brady: Do you even know when philip is coming home?

Chloe: No, we haven’t spoken since wilkes-barre. He knew that I was upset with him, so he’s giving me some space, but I think that he’s learned his lesson.

Brady: Good.

Chloe: [Sighs] At least I hope he has.

Gabi: This isn’t gonna work. You can’t just bluff your way out of this like a poker game.

Jake: Trust me on this.

Gabi: When that it guy sees that my computer is clean, he’s gonna be convinced that I’m the hacker. It’s gonna blow up in our faces.

Philip: Thanks, gunther.

Gabi: Look, philip, it was just a thought.

Philip: You were right. They found a keylogger on her laptop too.

Jake: Meaning she’s not the one who hacked yours.

Philip: I’m gonna have it check out the computers of all the executives. So now the question is, who did this?

Jake: Dimera. Chad and ej are pissed I switched teams.

Philip: I wouldn’t put it past ’em.

Gabi: You know what, though? If they hacked gabi chic, it could be basic black, but I don’t see nicole doing something like this. Philip, wait, you don’t think…

Philip: It’s brady. To be a thriver

Abe: Well, I’m not saying that we should get married tomorrow, but I have thought about it.

Paulina: Well, I knew you’ve been married before, and I wasn’t sure if you ever wanted to do it again.

Abe: Yeah. Well, it’s been ten years since I lost lexie, and I still miss her.

Paulina: Of course you do. It was a happy marriage, wasn’t it?

Abe: For 20 years. But I told myself that if I ever got married again, it would have to be to someone very special.

Paulina: That doesn’t rule me out?

Abe: [Chuckles] You know, we’ve had some… we’ve had some rocky moments, but I feel the same way you feel about tonight. It just–it just felt right. And, well, if things keep going in this direction, I could see getting married.

Paulina: [Chuckles] Well, we’ll take it nice and easy. How about a week from thursday?

[Both laugh] Oh, abe. Wait, I just want you to know, I think that you are worth waiting for. Ooh.

[Both laugh] How about a week from friday?

[Both laugh]

Abe: Oh!

Nicole: Ava, I don’t feel that way about rafe.

Ava: Are you sure?

Nicole: Yes, I’m positive. Why do you keep asking me that?

Ava: It’s just that, you know, you and rafe, you were so close, and I just– I need to know where I stand.

Nicole: Yes, but I told him that we couldn’t see each other for a while because I was screwing things up for you guys, and I’m sorry about that, but you have–you don’t have to worry about me, at all.

Ava: Okay. I appreciate that. I do, and I do think it’ll be best for the time being for the two of you just not to see each other. And I’m sorry. I’m so sorry about that.

Nicole: Oh, please. Don’t be. Not seeing rafe is not a problem for me. Okay?


[Uncomfortable laughter]

Gabi: [Sighs] My nerves are shot. I thought we were done for.

Jake: Oh, ye of little faith.

Gabi: Talk about faith. You put that spyware on my laptop, didn’t you? It was only you that could’ve done that. You were spying on me spying on philip.

Jake: I was protecting you. Remember all the time I spent at the mansion?

Gabi: Vividly.

Jake: Well, I finally figured out why the old man taught all the kids chess. He was teaching them to think of the move after the move after the present move.

Gabi: You put that keylogger on my laptop in case philip found the one I put on his.

Jake: I knew philip was going to accuse you first, so we had to be ready for him.

Gabi: Why didn’t you tell me?

Jake: I figured you already had enough on your plate.

Gabi: Or you like having the means to check up on me.

Jake: [Chuckling] Oh, gabi. You have a suspicious mind.

Gabi: Hell, I would’ve done the same thing. You know what, here’s to the man that saved our jobs. You’re lucky that I use a website to access the keylogger program, or else it would’ve found out that I’m the hacker when they checked my laptop.

Jake: What, you think I didn’t know that? It’s a pretty genius move.

Gabi: If you do say so yourself.

Jake: I do. In fact, it’s the move the future ceo of titan would make, don’t you think? Huh?

Gabi: [Scoffs]

Chloe: Hey. How’s victor?

Brady: He wasn’t resting. He just wanted to get away from the police. He was afraid that they would arrest him for excessive celebration.

Chloe: Oh, no, you’re not saying that he’s actually enjoying bonnie’s plight?

Brady: He said that watching bonnie be taken out of his house in handcuffs was as beautiful as the winged victory.

Chloe: Aw, the old sweetie.

[Both laugh]

Brady: Yeah, it’s justin I’m worried about, though.

Chloe: Yeah, today was supposed to be such a joyful day.

Brady: Yeah. Oh, my gosh, you know what– you know what a couple days from now is?

Chloe: Our wedding anniversary.

Brady: Yeah, it’s–yeah. I was very happy that day. And you–I remember lifting your veil, and your smile was very–it was beautiful.

Chloe: Brady.

Brady: And, uh, remember that night? The little cottage.

[Sighs] I know you remember that.

Chloe: Yeah, of course. Of course I remember.

Philip: Chloe, henderson just told me– you son of a bitch! Is struggling to manage your type 2 diabetes

Gabi: I am not gonna have this discussion with you again. I am the future ceo of titan. I planned this from the beginning.

Jake: And if not for me, that plan would’ve gotten us fired. Face it, like I said, I’m a genius.

Gabi: You know what’s genius? Me shifting blame so philip thinks it’s brady.

Jake: That was not a half bad pivot.

Gabi: It was brilliant, especially after that email that philip drafted. He’s already crazy jealous of brady. Did you see the look in his eye when I said that it was brady behind that spyware?

Jake: Yeah. He looked mad enough to kill.

Philip: I know what you did, and you’re never gonna get away with it.

Chloe: Philip, please, please, do not do this. Brady just gave me a lift home. When we got here, there was cops everywhere.

Philip: I’m not talking about him stalking you. I’m talking about him trying to take away my company.

Chloe: What?

Philip: He put spyware on my computer…

Brady: No.

Philip: And gabi’s too.

Brady: Philip, no, I did not.

Philip: Don’t deny it. You were trying to undermine me.

Brady: You’re doing that all on your own.

Philip: My lawyers are looking into it, brady, and once we have the proof, I’m gonna put your ass in prison for corporate espionage.

Brady: Philip, you’re not gonna find any proof because i didn’t do it.

Chloe: Okay, brady, please, can you just give us a moment alone?

Brady: Sure, I’d love to. I don’t need this. Philip, you should consider getting some help, man.

Philip: You’re gonna pay for this!

Chloe: Philip.

Philip: You heard what he did. You have to stop working for him. Now.

Eli: Hey.

Lani: Hi.

Eli: How are the kids? Did they give aunt paulina and abe any trouble?

Lani: Nope. Not at all. When I picked them up, they were in a really good mood.

Eli: Well, it is a pleasure to spend time with our babies.

Lani: If only all children were as perfect as ours. You want a beer?

Eli: Yes, I want a beer. Oh, okay.

Lani: How was the station?

Eli: Oh, bonnie is a mess.

Lani: I cannot believe that she stole a million dollars and shot her sister-in-law. Like, what was the reason for it?

Eli: I don’t know. She clammed up in the car.

Lani: Yeah, but what did rafe say?

Eli: Well, I gave him the file, but he seemed distracted.

Lani: Rafe is never distracted.

Eli: He’s dealing with some personal issues, but I think he’s got it all settled out now.

Rafe: Ava.

Ava: Hey. Hi.

Rafe: Nicole.

Nicole: Rafe.

Ava: Well, this is a surprise.

Rafe: Well, yeah, I figured you’d be dropping off your résumé and thought I’d stop by and maybe we could have dinner, but I’m interrupting.

Nicole: No, no. You’re not.

Rafe: No?

Nicole: Actually, I was just leaving. Thank you for the drink.

Ava: It’s my pleasure. It was good to see you.

Nicole: You too. Have a nice dinner.

Ava: Thanks.

Rafe: Thanks. Okay. As someone who resembles someone else…

Eli: So how does it feel to be back on the job?

Lani: Exhausting. I am just so glad that aunt paulina and dad made dinner and it saved us from pigging out on stakeout food.

Eli: Yeah, dinner was nice. Pleasant. I’m glad that paulina and abe worked things out and got back together.

Lani: Yeah.

Paulina: I never thought this evening would turn out so well.

Abe: Well, I knew.

Paulina: Hmm?

Abe: Mm-hmm. You know, life has many more surprises with you around.

Paulina: Is that good?

Abe: Oh, that is very, very good.

Paulina: [Laughs]

Abe: I love you.

Paulina: I love you, too.

Gabi: We have to keep pushing philip to go after brady. He’s gonna take it too far, and then that’s when victor’s gonna fire him.

Jake: And we’ll be right there ready to take over.

Gabi: To victory.

Jake: To us.

Chloe: You want me to quit my job.

Philip: Look, what brady did is illegal. You don’t wanna get mixed up with that guy when I take him down.

Chloe: You don’t have any proof.

Philip: Not yet.

Chloe: I don’t think he did it.

Philip: I know he did.

Chloe: Okay, well, I’m not quitting until you can prove it.

Philip: Well, that’s up to you.

Chloe: Oh, well, that’s very nice of you to acknowledge that.

Philip: But when it turns out that I’m right, I want you to leave that job and brady for good.

Chloe: Okay, but if you are wrong, I don’t want to hear a word about brady ever again. Okay?

Philip: Deal.

Brady: Fancy seeing you here.

Nicole: Oh. I thought you were in new york.

Brady: I was. Chloe and I, we closed the deal. With the client. With the client.

Nicole: Great, great.

Brady: How you doing? You look kinda down.

Nicole: That’s why I’m eating my feelings.

Brady: You mind if I get in on that? Thank you.

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

Rafe: So what were you and nicole talking about?

Ava: Oh, well, she was just telling me how she never wants to come between the two of us, and I was thanking her for stepping out of the picture. You still okay with that?

Rafe: Yeah. I told you I was. Maybe we can just put this old topic to rest?

Ava: Of course. I am gonna go freshen up.

Rafe: All right.

[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: Can you see it now?

Steffy: It’s not what it looks like.

Sheila: It’s a text from finn on my phone.

Steffy: No. No, he wouldn’T.

Sheila: He did. And you tell me that I’m never going to be a part of finn’s life, but my son loves me, steffy. That text proves it. Finn sent me a heart emoji. I am gonna be a part of my son’s life. And there’s nothing you can do to stop that from happening.

Paris: I know you wanna get back to sheila.

Finn: I should. Paris, thank you for coming. And for being here for me.

Paris: Look, I know emergencies are your job but that’s your birth mother in there. I mean, it must have been really upsetting seeing her collapse.

Finn: I feel terrible. I could see she was getting agitated but I was so focused on getting her out of the house, making her leave, telling her to never see me again. That’s when she passed out.

Eric: Finn is bound to feel guilty about this.

Quinn: That’s the point. Classic sheila move.

Ridge: Well, apparently it worked. She’s at the hospital with my son-in-law by her side.

Eric: Exactly what we were afraid of. She’s using finn to worm her way back into our family.

Ridge: Not gonna let that happen.

Eric: I thought we had a restraining order against her.

Ridge: Well, we don’t have it yet.

Carter: Ridge.

Ridge: He’s the guy you wanna talk to about that.

Carter: Talk to me about what?

Ridge: The restraining order against sheila. You realize that every second we don’t have it, she gets her claws deeper and deeper into this family?

Carter: We have a hearing date for the restraining order but if sheila’s done something else–

Quinn: She’s running a game on finn.

Eric: She pretended to faint while he was trying to kick her out of the house.

Carter: She went there again?

Ridge: Of course she went there again. She’s gonna keep going there because she wants to have a relationship with finn. But more than that, she wants to be by my grandson.

[ Sighing ]

Finn: This is not where I thought I would be today, dealing with this. Steffy and I patched things up.

Paris: Wow, that’s great!

Finn: But then as soon as she left for work, sheila showed up and all I could think was “get her out”.

Paris: You can’t blame yourself for this. You are the reason that sheila’s here and she’s getting the care she needs. Even if steffy doesn’t think she really needs it.

Finn: Steffy has every reason not to want sheila in our lives.

Paris: Yes, they have a very complicated history. But we are talking about the woman who gave birth to you.

Finn: And if she was anyone else, I could have a relationship with her, but I’m not going to do that to my wife, to my family. I promised steffy no contact.

Paris: Well, you aren’t the one that invited her to your house. Your dad told her that she could meet hayes and you didn’t even say anything in the text message that you sent to her was just an emoji. Oh. Steffy still doesn’t know about that.

Finn: No. She’s already stressed out about everything else. I’m not gonna upset her even more.

Steffy: This can’t be real. Obviously you made this up.

Sheila: Check– check the text. It came from finn’s phone. Look at again if you need to, steffy. But I was– I was saying goodbye. I was leaving town and then finn texted me that heart showing me that he wanted me to stay. He doesn’t want me to go. He still doesn’T.

Steffy: Why would I believe you? All you do is lie.

Sheila: You want more proof?

Steffy: That doesn’t prove anything.

Sheila: What about today? The way my son took care of me and came to my aid. That tells me more than any text ever could. Does your vitamin c last twenty-four hours?

Ridge: We have to get control of the situation. ‘Cause right now all we’re doing is reacting to whatever sheila does and that’s gonna stop.

Carter: At least we know where she is.

Ridge: Yeah, we know where she is. You know who else is there? Finn and my daughter.

Eric: How long are they gonna be there in the hospital?

Quinn: As long as she’s getting sympathy from her son, the doctor, she’s gonna stay there as long as she can.

Eric: If sheila starts getting desperate, I agree with you. Steffy’s gonna confront her.

Ridge: I like to think my daughter’s smart enough to not put her children in danger.

Eric: Of course she is. I’m more concerned about their relationship. If she’s determined to drive a wedge between finn and steffy.

Quinn: You know, if sheila provokes her, steffy is never going to hold back.

Finn: I should get back in there.

Paris: You gonna be okay?

Finn: Sheila’s stable. The test results will tell us what happened.

Paris: Well, I know she’s gonna be okay because she has the best doctor in the hospital looking out for her. I’m asking about you though, finn. I know you haven’t known her for a very long time but that is your birth mother in there.

Finn: Seeing her go down like that. It shook me up a little.

Paris: I understand. It’s complicated. Being in the middle of a difficult situation like this. But if you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here.

Sheila: The text is from my son.

Steffy: I told you to stop calling him that! He’s my husband and he doesn’t want any contact with you.

Sheila: That’s what you want. You’re trying to lay down the laws saying that he can’t see me or talk to me. But what did he do, huh steffy? I was in trouble and he rushed me to the hospital. He probably saved my life.

Steffy: He did his job. It doesn’t make you special.

Sheila: I am. I am to him.

Steffy: You’re wrong. You’re wrong. You’re just a complication. He knows that you’re not gonna be in our lives, sheila.

Sheila: You just don’t see how this is truly hurting him.

Steffy: You know nothing about my husband.

Sheila: I gave birth to him. He’s a part of me. I’m a part of him.

Steffy: You want him to believe that. You want him to be vulnerable to you. You just keep manipulating him.

Sheila: You’re the one controlling him, not me.

Steffy: I am protecting my family.

Sheila: He’s not afraid of me. Finn didn’t try to chase me out of the house and he put my grandson in my arms. He loves me. He wants me in his life and the sooner you accept that, the better.

Steffy: Is that a threat?

Sheila: This is hurting finn. You have to be seeing that. He is being…

[ Machine beeping faster ] A wonderful husband right now, bowing down to your every unreasonable whim and– finn and I are always going to share a bond. A biological one, but you and your family will never be able to break.

Steffy: You wanna bet? Try coming near me and my family again and see what happens. This twisted fantasy that you have, being in finn’s and hayes’s life, it is not going to happen. It ends now!

Sheila: You forresters. Always telling everybody what to do. And you’ve gotta listen and you’ve gotta do this and it’s my husband and it’s my son. Like I’m not here, like I don’t even exist but I do. They’re my family too and hayes is my grandson!

Steffy: Don’t you dare say his name! Don’t you dare say his name!

[ Loud beeping ]

Paris: Is that–

Steffy: What did you do?

Finn: Mom!

[ Loud beeping ] Your mission:

Eric: I have to believe that finn will do the right thing.

Ridge: Yeah, I wanna believe that too. He loves steffy. He doesn’t wanna disappoint her again, regardless of what game sheila is playing.

Eric: I have to admit that for finn never to see his birth mother again, might seem to him too much of a sacrifice.

Ridge: That’s what you do for someone you love.

[ Phone alert ]

Eric: There’s our meeting in the cutting room. I can postpone–

Ridge: We’re not postponing anything. This woman has disrupted our lives enough as it is. Let’s go.

Eric: I’ll see you later.

Quinn: Steffy will let ridge know if there’s anything really wrong with sheila.

Carter: How are you doing, quinn? Last time we saw each other, I got the sense that something’s going on. Even though you’re back with eric, you can always open up to me. After everything we’ve been through, I’m always gonna care about you.

Steffy: Dr. Griffith said she’s stable.

Finn: Your vitals are normal. How’s your breathing?

Sheila: It’s better. I was just upset.

Finn: You’re supposed to be resting.

Sheila: I know. I was. I woke up and steffy was here and she started attacking me.

Steffy: I never touched you.

Sheila: She said the most terrible things.

Steffy: You see what she’s doing? It’s another one of her manipulations. She isn’t sick.

Finn: I was there when she collapsed, steffy. I called the ambulance. She just had another episode.

Steffy: She just brought you in here to make me look bad. I am telling you, she’s fine.

Sheila: How can I be fine when you tried to cut me out of finn’s and my grandson’s life?

Steffy: You see? You see what she’s doing?

Sheila: Am I not supposed to be upset about that?

Steffy: Have you forgotten all the crimes you’ve committed against my family?

Sheila: That’s not what this is about. It’s about what you saw. Go on. Tell him. Tell finn what you saw on my phone. I am so sorry, but I had to show her that you really did care about me and that if it weren’t for her, I would be a part of your lives. I had to show her the text that you sent me.

Steffy: I told her it wasn’t true. Is it? You promised there would be no contact between you two. Did you send her a heart emoji? Some people have joint pain,

Quinn: Carter, it’s– it’s very kind of you to be concerned.

Carter: Quinn, I’ll never stop thinking about you or being concerned. You know how I feel. How much I love you. How much I miss you. I think about you all the time. But I realize you’re in a different place and honestly I just want you to be happy. I mean, you’re back with eric, you’re back home. That must feel great. And I know eric can’t get enough of you, right?

Carter: Quinn. Look, if there’s something wrong, you can tell me what’s going on.

Quinn: I can’T. I really– I wish I could, but… I miss you. And everything that we had, but I love eric. He’s my husband and I’m 100% committed to him.

Carter: He’s very lucky to have you.

Quinn: Eric loves me very much. He tells me every single day.

Steffy: Did you send sheila that text? I know she lies but is she lying about this?

Finn: No.

Steffy: You replied to her after I told you to have no contact with sheila. Finn!

Finn: She said she was leaving town. I just wanted her to know that I got the message.

Steffy: By sending her a heart?

Finn: Replying “okay”? That seemed a little– I don’t know. But look, I didn’t say anything. And we didn’t communicate.

Steffy: Maybe you didn’t mean to, but by doing that, you let her back in. This woman is more than dangerous. She is evil and what she’s doing to us is evil. I’m not trying to be cruel or unfair right now. I’m trying to protect you and our children. I know that you’ve been thinking about your birth mother. You wanna know her. You wanna help her but you can’t because she’s a sociopath. So that’s why you have to walk away from this. Walk away from this terrible human being.

Sheila: I’m sorry. I am so sorry, finn, honey. I never meant to cause you more trouble.

Steffy: Oh no, don’t listen to her. Please, do not listen to her.

Sheila: I know that you didn’t want steffy to see that text, but she kept saying that all of this was just in my head and that you didn’t care and I know that you do.

Steffy: Stop it! Leave him alone.

Sheila: Look, she’s the one making demands here. Not me. Yes, I’ve done terrible things, things that I do regret. The forrester family, they were attacking me, always and trying to make it so that people didn’t like me, just like steffy is doing right now.

Steffy: Finn, I want her out of our lives. I’m trying to keep our children safe.

Sheila: Please, finn, don’t let her do this. You are my son. And I want to know you. I hated giving you up. And I thought about you everyday. And wondered what you were doing. If you ever thought about me. And I hoped that there would be a day that I’d be able to speak to you. Is that so wrong? Is that a crime? To care for you? For your mother to love you?

Sheila: Because that’s how I feel. And it’s the truth. I love you. I’ve always loved you and I always will. I want to know you. I want to know you. I want to be a part of your life. I want to–I want to know that little boy that I brought into this world. And I think, deep down, that you want to know me too. Please don’t walk out that door. Don’t do it. Don’t leave your mother.

Lily: Oh, my gosh! Look at that face!

Devon: I know. He’s a handsome guy.

Lily: So cute. And I love his name — dominic, with a “d,” in your honor.

Devon: Right?

Lily: Yeah.

Devon: That was unexpected. I didn’t — it was very special.

Lily: My gosh. And what a crazy story. It’s like, you guys just found mariah, and then the baby’s coming.

Devon: Oh, you have no idea. I have no idea what we would have done if I didn’t get nate on the phone to coach abby and me through everything.

Lily: Well, I’m sure the three of you would have figured it out.

Devon: Well, I’m glad i didn’t have to.

[ Chuckles ]

Lily: So, what was it like bringing a new life into this world?

Devon: It was incredible. And, uh, abby was amazing through it all. She stayed calm and reassuring.

Lily: Yeah. What about mariah?

Devon: I mean, what can you say about her? She was…heroic. She stayed strong through everything that she went through, from being kidnapped to trapped in a room for a weeks.

Lily: I am so happy that you and abby made it there in time for the delivery ’cause she must have been terrified.

Devon: Oh, yeah. It was just — it’s — it was all a blur, you know? But I will definitely never forget the feeling of just holding dominic in my arms for the first moments of his life.

Lily: Man, what a thrill to experience that.

Devon: I know. Yeah. I knew that I would feel a connection with him because of our dna, but this is just — this is something else.

Abby: Well, can’t we just get someone to fill in, like a bartender or something? No, no, no, we cannot go without a hostess. Okay, yeah, just — just figure it out and call me back.

Mariah: Problem?

Abby: [ Sighs ] We are short-staffed at society. One of our hostesses called in sick.

Mariah: Oh, bummer.

Abby: Yeah. You know, if tessa didn’t have a gig tonight, I would ask her to pick up a shift [Chuckles] For old time’s sake.

Mariah: Well, if you need someone to watch the baby, I can do it.

Abby: No, no, that’s okay. I-I don’t want to impose.

Mariah: It’s — really, it’s not a big deal, you know? He’s crashed out, so I’d probably just be sitting here doing what I was gonna do anyway, reading a book, maybe watching a little tv.

Abby: [ Sighs ] That’s very sweet. I just — it feels like too much.

Mariah: Abby, you’re not asking me to do anything. I volunteered. And I know you won’t make a habit of it, so… really. I’m happy to do it.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Elena: Hey.

Victoria: Oh, hello.

Nate: Hey.

Ashland: So glad you could make it.

Nate: Hey. Well, thank you for the invite.

Victoria: Uh, ashland, this is dr. Elena dawson. This is my fiancé — ashland locke.

Elena: It’s lovely to meet you.

Ashland: The pleasure’s all mine.

Elena: You know, it’s been ages since we’ve both had two nights off in a row.

Nate: Almost never happens.

Elena: Yeah. So we get to enjoy and relax tonight.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: Fabulous.

Ashland: Well, we have some appetizers on the way. We should probably get you some drinks.

Nate: Great idea.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: Looks like the initial reviews are positive. “Newman media launch event set just the right tone.”

Victor: Ah. You mean not even a mention of phyllis dumping an ice bucket over that woman?

Adam: No. I haven’t seen it mentioned yet.

Victor: You mean chanccomm hasn’t said anything?

Adam: Wasn’t that hard to suppress.

Victor: Whoa. One viral video would have undermined everything you and i were trying to accomplish, you know.

Adam: Uh-huh. Um, I actually — I have to get going. I have dinner plans.

Victor: The meeting with northern brands? You know, that cfo had actually a rather interesting idea.

Adam: Uh, we have a video chat scheduled later this week to go over it, so… anyway, I’ll see you tomorrow.

Victor: Hey, son. You’re not meeting that woman, are you?

Adam: Which woman would that be?

Victor: You know, that spectra woman, whatever the hell her name is.

Adam: [ Sighs ] As a matter of fact, I am. Ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete,

Additional sponsorship

provided by…

Jack: What a lovely surprise.

Lauren: I probably should have called first.

Jack: Nonsense. I’m always happy to see you. What brings you by?

Lauren: Well, michael was working late. He’s preparing for the sutton ames trial. And I was on my own, and i thought, “hmm.” Would you like to join me for dinner?

Jack: Well, I’m not sure i want to go back out, but I’d love the company. How’s chinese takeout sound?

Lauren: Ooh. Sounds delicious.

Victor: That woman threw a drink into phyllis’s face at an event that you and I had been planning. If I were you, I’d see to it that she seeks employment elsewhere, okay?

Adam: Maybe phyllis had it coming.

Victor: This a joke to you or what?

Adam: Sally let her temper get the best of her after phyllis provoked her. It was both of their faults.

Victor: Can you blame phyllis after what that woman has done to summer?

Adam: Bottom line — I’m not interested in getting involved in their personal details, okay? I’m focused on business.

Victor: You’re focusing on monkey business. This is the second night you’re spending with this woman.

Adam: I’m not “spending the night” with her. We’re grabbing a bite. It’s a working dinner.

Victor: Working dinner, huh? Is that what they call it now? If I were you, son, I would strategize with me how to defeat chanccomm.

Adam: You’re just — you’re just not gonna let this go, are you?

Victor: No.

Adam: Fine. We can talk about it, but not right now because I’m late. Sally’s probably waiting for me. So I will see you tomorrow. Alright?

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Ashland: What do you say later on we go back to victoria’s hot tub?

Victoria: Do you want to have a nightcap?

Elena: Yeah.

Nate: You have a hot tub?

Victoria: Yeah, it’s just one of those above-the-ground ones.

Elena: I thought you didn’t even…

Nate: This latest generation of robots gives us the kind of precision we could only dream about. Look, the nav-system uses 3-d imaging, which offers surgical teams mind-blowing, real-time mapping capabilities.

Elena: He means there’s no lag time with the video, so we can see what we’re doing while we’re doing it.

Nate: Sorry. I geek out a little bit.

Victoria: And this is all happening inside the patient through a tiny incision?

Nate: It’s cutting edge of what’s possible now. And it’s the type of technology we’ll be able to purchase thanks to your generous donation.

Ashland: Well, this is really exciting stuff. However —

Nate: Enough with the shop talk. Got it.

[ Chuckles ] I’ll send you written updates on how the hospital uses the funds.

Ashland: That works for me.

Elena: So, now that our professional lives are off the table, what should we talk about?

Ashland: Anything and everything, as long as we steer clear of my situation.

Elena: Actually, there is something that I want to discuss — your wedding plans.

Victoria: Oh. Well, um, that just happens to be my favorite subject.

[ Laughs ] I looked on ancestry and just started digging

Victoria: Well, the details are — well, they’re still coming together.

Nate: Sounds like you thought of everything.

Elena: Yeah, it’s like the ultimate destination wedding. An italian palazzo? How dreamy is that?

Nate: I imagine it must be a challenge trying to organize an event this elaborate from another continent?

Victoria: Well, yes. Thankfully, my mother’s found someone there to coordinate it.

Elena: So, tell me about the dress.

Victoria: Well, um, I haven’t nailed down a designer yet, but I’m waiting to talk to summer’s boss — angelina marchetti. I’m not holding my breath. I know she’s really in demand. She might not have time to do it, so I might have to move on as the date approaches.

Elena: Ugh, that is such a hard decision. Honestly, the dress is the most important part.

[ Laughter ] You laugh, but it’s true. Have you decided on a style yet?

Victoria: Oh, nothing over the top, but at the same time, the aesthetic of the ceremony is certainly not minimalistic.

Elena: I totally get it. This wedding is gonna infuse so much joie de vivre. You need a dress that goes in line with that.

Ashland: Yes! Joie de vivre. That is exactly the spirit of this event — the joy of life.

Adam: Well, well. Good evening, everyone.

Nate: Adam.

Elena: Hi.

Victoria: I see you’re with sally. Maybe you’ve finally found your perfect match.

Adam: It certainly seems you two have. I couldn’t be happier for you both.

Ashland: Thank you, adam. Enjoy your evening.

Adam: You too. Sally. I’m late. I know. I’m sorry. I, um — I got held up at the office.

Sally: It’s no problem.

Your table’s ready. If you’ll follow me… enjoy.

Adam: Thank you.

Sally: Well, you get such a kick of that, don’t you? Tweaking them, not letting their little slings and arrows get to you.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] It’s a game. You develop a thick skin.

Sally: I think there’s a lot I can learn from you.

[ Chuckles ]

Lily: So, tell me about the trip that amanda’s taken.

Devon: Oh, yeah. She and naya and imani decided they need a getaway.

Lily: What? That’s a big step for them.

Devon: It’s a huge step. I think it’ll be a good way for them to heal some wounds. You know, this whole saga with sutton and his involvement in richard’s death has — it’s really taken a toll on them.

Lily: Well, I mean, those are big things to get over, but I’m glad that they’re trying to, especially as a family.

Devon: Yeah, and it meant a whole lot to amanda because they suggested it.

Lily: Yeah, I’m sure.

Devon: So, where’s billy tonight?

Lily: Um, he is at home with the kids.

Devon: Nice.

Lily: I wanted to, uh, give them some alone time. I know how much they love having their dad all to themselves. So, I get to have time with you, hang out, catch up.

Devon: Isn’t it crazy how we have so much family stuff going on in our lives right now?

Lily: Oh, my gosh, I know, right?

Devon: It’s wild. You’re taking care of billy’s kids. We’re both looking after moses.

Lily: Mm-hmm. It takes a village, you know, which we’re all a part of. And now dominic and his parents are, too.

Devon: Yeah. And chance and I are technically family.

Lily: Yeah, through the katherine connection. Going strong.

Devon: And that’s the main reason, too, why I wanted to be the donor, is so that dominic could have that connection.

Lily: Well, now you and chance can work together to make sure that he’s just surrounded by nothing but love, which i know is what you wanted.

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: But I’m also sensing a little shift in you since the baby’s been born?

Mariah: Okay, bowie. Okay. Shh! I know! I know. I know. I know. I know. Come on, kid, you got to work with me here. I changed your diaper. I sang you a lullaby. Come on. Please. What do you need? What can I do for you, okay? You — you won’t take your bottle, so — shh. Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shh. Please, I would do anything for you. I would do anything in the world for you. You know that.

[ Sighing ] Oh, god.


Lauren: Ooh. Okay. Spicy beef for you.

Jack: Cashew chicken for you.

Lauren: That’s right!

Jack: Fantastic. Thank you.

Lauren: Okay. So, you were saying?

Jack: Oh, I was saying harrison apparently loves pizza in italy even more than he loves pizza here. Summer sent me this wonderful video of him helping her cook.

Lauren: Uh, “helping” being a relative term when you’re talking about a 3-year-old.

Jack: Actually, you’d be amazed. This kid is ahead of the curve. Now, they have this little place outside milan, and it has an outdoor pizza oven. And he was adding the cheese just so.

Lauren: Aww. Sounds so adorable.

Jack: Most amazing thing about this kid is he is adaptable. I mean, he has adjusted to life in europe in no time flat.

Lauren: Well, that’s what kids do. They’re really good at adapting. But he must miss his mom. I mean, they were so attached.

Jack: Yeah, that was the one authentic thing about that woman. She was committed to her little boy, fiercely so, it turned out.

Lauren: Well, I almost felt sorry for her. I don’t think she knew what she was getting herself into, taking on phyllis.

Jack: No, and I regret ever pressuring phyllis to lay off of her and sally, but her instincts were exactly on target, as usual.

Lauren: Yeah. Yeah. Our dear friend has a real gift for being able to read people.

Jack: And now summer and kyle owe their happiness to her.

Lauren: That is true. And phyllis will never let them forget that.

Jack: Oh, you can bet she won’T.

[ Both laugh ]

Nate: So, they’re playing the processional. All the guests are standing up, looking towards the back of the church at the bride’s father, who is standing there alone in the vestibule, wondering where the heck his daughter is.

Victoria: Uh-oh.

Ashland: Had she fled the premises?

Nate: No, nothing that dramatic. Apparently, she had went back to the bride’s room for something blue and told her attendants to go on ahead. Well, as she was rushing up the stairs in her high heels, she falls and twists her ankle.

Victoria: Oh, no!

Nate: Yes. The poor groom is dying a thousand deaths, thinking he’s been stood up at the altar.

[ Chuckles ] Well, long story short, the bride was found. I grabbed my medical bag and taped up her ankle. The ceremony went on as planned. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to join in on the electric slide.

[ Laughter ]

Ashland: Well, it seems like you’re the right man to have on hand in a crisis.

Nate: Always pays to have a doctor in the house. Which reminds me of the time i was a groomsman for one of my college buddies —

Elena: Alright, no more, no more, no more.

[ Laughter ] Enough wedding horror stories. That’s the last thing we need to hear.

Victoria: Well, I could tell a few of my own, so this is good. I’m taking notes on how to avoid disaster so that our day will be perfect.

Ashland: Mwah!

Sally: I am really glad that we downshifted from a date to a working dinner.

Adam: You are, huh?

Sally: Yeah. And we can ignore all those “what not to do on a date” rules. Like, I wore my comfy shoes. And you were 20 minutes late.

Adam: Okay, those are not comfy shoes. And I’m sorry about that.

Sally: It’s fine. Really. This is exactly what I’m talking about. It’s better than if you bailed. And I’m guessing there was pressure on you to do that.

Adam: Um…

Sally: Yeah, that’s what i thought. It’s fine. Really. This is not my first time hanging out with a real sob — son of a billionaire…

Adam: [ Chuckles ]

Sally: …Who didn’t realize he was one growing up.

Adam: Really? You don’t say.

Sally: Yeah. There’s a lot more of you out there than you might think. You could start a club. Or a support group.

Adam: Uh, I think that we should get down to business. Did you, um — you bring some sample designs?

Sally: Mnh-mnh. You’re gonna have to wait on that ’cause I’m starving since you were —

Adam: Yes. Late. Sorry…again.

Elena: Cooking podcasts. I’m obsessed.

Victoria: Oh, my god.

[ Chuckling ] Me too!

Elena: Really?

Victoria: Yes! The more complicated, the better.

Elena: What? I didn’t know you liked to cook.

Victoria: No, I hate it. I’m terrible.

Ashland: Oh, don’t listen to her. She makes a fine grilled cheese.

Victoria: Well, I mean, only if I’m really paying attention, but if I try to get too fancy, then forget it.

Elena: I totally get that.

Victoria: It’s like that, you know, fantasy element, creating the perfect dish with that wild presentation.

Elena: Like an edible flower sprinkled on a plate?

Victoria: Yes, exactly that.

Elena: I’m an okay cook, and I kind of enjoy it, but, honestly, who has the time?

Victoria: Mm.

Elena: I’m lucky if I can heat up my takeout before devouring it.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: And my former roommate, the chef, would be appalled if she saw the way I’ve been eating lately.

Nate: Mnh, I beg to differ. Lola would be impressed as hell with what you’re doing with your time. You’re making a huge difference in a lot of lives.

Elena: Mm.

Victoria: Well, I am gonna go freshen up.

Elena: I think I’m gonna join you.

Ashland: That’s the face of a man who knows precisely how lucky he is.

Nate: I certainly do.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ]

Devon: Amanda asked me that same question — if I regret stepping up to be the donor or, you know, a part of dom’s extended family. And my answer is no. I knew how important it was for abby and chance to start a family, and I’m still happy that I was able to help them do it.

Lily: Yeah, so am I, but you know if your answer were different, I wouldn’t judge you, right?

Devon: Yeah, of course I do.

Lily: ‘Cause I know what it’s like to be in abby’s shoes, you know, needing a surrogate. So I know the thoughts that can go through your head, and I want you to know I’m here if you ever want to talk about any of it.

Devon: I don’t know. Just when I think of that first moment that I held dominic and when I heard him take his first few breaths, you know, in life, I — I just remember I had that thought and that feeling of, “this is it, and this is — this is what it’s really like to be a father.” And, you know, it just brought up a lot of emotions.

Lily: Yeah, well, especially ’cause you should have been a father awhile ago. You know, how could you not think about hillary and the baby that you lost?

Devon: Yeah. I mean, I’m — I’m sure she’s smiling, looking down, proud.

Lily: But you miss her… and your baby.

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: And I want you to know that you can talk to me about any of that, as well. You know, I — I won’t make it about my own feelings of guilt. I just — I just want to be here for you, if you’ll let me.

Devon: I appreciate that. I do.

[ Door closes ]

Abby: Mariah? Mariah, hey, uh, I found someone to come in to work, so you’re off the hook. Mariah? Okay, uh, maybe — maybe she’s, uh, feeding him, uh, or rocking him. Mariah? Mariah? Not touching is still touching protection.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Sally: Was it wrong of me to want the forresters to include my designs in their couture collection out of sympathy, knowing I was at death’s door? Maybe. Yes. But it didn’t hurt anyone, right? I mean, especially since those designs were good.

Adam: If you do say so yourself.

Sally: Ridge and eric are businessmen first. They would not have included them otherwise. And if they actually made it down the runway, I believe they would have been huge sellers. It would have been a win-win for both of us.

Adam: I mean, when you think about it, you were doing them a favor.

Sally: You know what? When it comes to my career, i refuse to be humble. I am one hell of a good designer. I just have the unfortunate tendency of getting in my own way, which I am working on. And I have a feeling you can relate.

Adam: [ Sighs ] You’re not wrong.

Ashland: Harrison seems to be quite taken with gelato.

Nate: Chocolate and vanilla. Good man.

Ashland: You have kids?

Nate: Not yet, but, um, someday hopefully. I’ve learned that, uh, you can’t always make firm plans when it comes to your personal life.

Ashland: The way you said that — have you ever been married?

Nate: I was engaged once. Uh, she passed.

Ashland: Oh, I’m sorry to hear that.

Nate: Thank you.

Ashland: It makes even more sense now, why you don’t react to me the way others do since my diagnosis. You don’t have that same squeamishness or distance that i sense in others. I assumed it was because you’re a doctor, but there’s more to it. You’ve gone through your own personal loss and grief. You don’t see it as foreign or frightening.

Elena: Ah. They seem to be getting along well.

Victoria: You know, nate stepped up for ashland in a big way after his first chemo session. He brought him home. He let him talk. He gave him some really good advice. He’s a good man.

Elena: Yeah. He is.

[ Chuckles ]

Jack: Let’s see. “I cannot help you, for I am only a cookie.”

Lauren: It does not say that!

Jack: Oh, no, it doesn’t say that. Let me see. We’ll play a little trombone here.

Lauren: [ Laughs ]

Jack: Uh, “your love life will soon be happy and harmonious.” Oh, we can only pray.

Lauren: Well, and you deserve that to come true.

Jack: I don’t know about that.

Lauren: Yes, you do.

Jack: I am thrilled, though, that summer and kyle have found their way back to each other.

Lauren: Yeah. What’s the update on their wedding?

Jack: Well, they are planning a small civil ceremony in italy, in contrast to what ashland locke and victoria are planning.

Lauren: Right, and quite a contrast from what kyle and summer were planning, as well, before all this craziness happened and they got derailed.

Jack: You know what? I’m glad they took things down a bit. I think they learned a lesson. They have everything they need to be happy right now, without all the extras.

Lauren: Mm. And what about you, my friend? Do you have everything you need to be happy?

Lily: So, how is abby dealing with chance being gone now that the baby’s here? I know having a family was their dream. It must be so hard for her to not have him here to share that with her.

Devon: Yeah, of course it is. She’s — she’s just staying strong and trying to keep the faith that he’s gonna come home to her soon.

Lily: And you took my advice, right?

Devon: About what? Not ragging on chance in front of her?

Lily: Yeah. I mean, I know that you were resenting him for not being here when she needed him.

Devon: Yeah, yeah, no, I — I told you I wasn’t gonna say that to her. It was just the last thing she needed to hear.

Lily: And now?

Devon: I mean, now I just kind of feel sorry for him ’cause there’s a lot of big moments that have happened that he’s never gonna get back. And I think when he’s home, it’s really gonna hit him hard.

Lily: Does he even know he has a son?

Devon: He’s gone deeper undercover, and we can’t get any messages to him. So I started to wonder if maybe it’s safer that he doesn’t know.

Lily: Well, look, I’m sure when he gets home, he’s gonna be very grateful to you for looking after abby and his son.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Oh. Hey, abby. What’s up?

Abby: Hey, have you heard from mariah?

Devon: Not recently. Why?

Abby: I had to go in to society for a bit, and mariah offered to watch dom, but I got home and they are gone. There’s no note or anything.

Devon: I assume you called her cellphone. Did it just go to voicemail or what?

Abby: Well, she left her phone at home. That’s weird, right? I mean, I’m trying not to freak out, but —

Devon: Yeah, no, don’t freak out. Don’t freak out at all. Um, just give me a minute, and I’ll be right over, okay?

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Devon: So, abby got back home from work, and mariah and the baby aren’t where she expected them to be.

Lily: Well, no. Go, please. You need to be there.

Devon: Okay. Thank you. Will you lock up before you go?

Lily: Yeah, of course, of course.

Devon: Okay. See you later.

Lily: Yeah.

[ Door closes ] Now, we all know progressive offers 24/7 protection,

Jack: I thought you were gonna stop pestering me about my romantic life — or lack thereof.

Lauren: When did I agree to that?

[ Laughs ] Come on. I’m just checking in.

Jack: Yeah, sure.

Lauren: I know that you had a really amazing time having kyle and harrison here. The house must feel very quiet without them.

Jack: Oh, boy, does it. I got used to all the noise and commotion and excitement, looking forward to the holidays, having a funny, happy kid like harrison around for halloween. Boy, it doesn’t get better than that.

Lauren: [ Chuckles ] Well, maybe they can come for a visit.

Jack: Yeah. I mean, sure they can. I’m still gonna have to get used to all the quiet in this house. And all the extra time I have on my hands. You know, thank god I’ve got work. I can pour myself into jabot and the abbott-winters foundation.

Lauren: Right, but that’s for your mind. You need something to fill your heart. You need a passion, and it doesn’t necessarily need to be romantic.

Jack: You know what? I have come to the conclusion that I’ve had my share of grand passions. Now looking after harrison, being “grandpa” — that’s what fed my heart. Soothing his little worries, exciting his imagination, teaching him the things that my father taught me. I mean, I can do those things over the phone, some of them, but it’s just not the same thing.

Lauren: You know, I’ve never thought of being a grandparent in those terms. The way you talk about it, it sounds very appealing. Of course, my sons aren’t even close to settling down, so…

Jack: I’m telling you, the day is gonna come, and when it does, trust me — you are gonna love it.

Victoria: I have a lovely cabernet in the kitchen.

Elena: Sounds great. I’ll help you.

Ashland: Please.

Nate: So, uh, will victoria’s kids be going to italy for the wedding?

Ashland: Oh, you know, I’m hoping that they can make it. Tuscany is absolutely gorgeous in the fall, and I’d love for them to see it.

Nate: Yeah. I, um — I went there with my mother when I was young. Still remember it. We went all over — tuscany, umbria, le marche.

Ashland: Nice.

Nate: I also saw quite a bit of europe when I was in boarding school. But I haven’t been back since.

Ashland: Why don’t you and elena join us at the wedding? Victoria and I would love to have you there. Uh…I know it might be a little presumptuous, and you can clearly say no, but, uh… I-I-I’d — I’d like for you to be my best man.

Nate: Wow, uh, that’s, uh, quite generous of you. Are you sure? I mean, we’re still getting to know each other.

Ashland: No, you know, I’ve always been able to size up people pretty quickly. You are a brilliant and kind man who has a — a deeper understanding of what I’m going through than most and…

Nate: I’m sure you have friends in new york you could ask.

Ashland: Yeah, I’m sure, but, I mean, to be quite honest, they’re mostly people I’ve met through work. The connections were more professional than personal, you know? I’m just not in that world right now. And, quite frankly, most people are clearly having a difficult time with my medical situation. Anyway, just think about it. There’s no pressure. I-I-I-I would love to have you and elena join us for the ceremony. It’s gonna be a blast.

Nate: Joie de vivre.

[ Both laugh ]

Ashland: From beginning to end.

Mariah: Hi.

Abby: Oh, my god. Hi. Where have you been?

Mariah: Oh, uh, bowie — sorry — uh, dominic was crying his head off, and I had no idea what to do. So I called the pediatrician, and he said that going out for a walk might help. And look. It worked.

Abby: Okay, I-I just, um — you didn’t leave a note or — you didn’t bring your phone. I mean, I had no way of getting a hold of you.

Mariah: Oh. Sorry. Yeah. I — when the baby cries, my brain short-circuits. It must be the hormones. But, um, everything is fine. I’m sorry if you got worried.

Abby: It’s just, the last time you disappeared with the baby, I mean, you were gone for three weeks. I almost called the police.

Mariah: Oh. Again, I’m — I’m really, really sorry, but we were just out for a walk on the grounds. That’s all. No need for alarm.

Abby: Yeah. Hi, baby. Hi.

Adam: I like the simplicity of the lines. And yet there’s a — there’s a richness to it. You have a specific bride in mind, which is a good thing. Even though, uh, victoria might not be inclined to choose a design from a woman who works for the company that’s owned by her black-sheep brother.

Sally: So, that’s it, huh? Just enough commentary to prove that it was a working dinner in case anyone asks?

Adam: Is there something more that you want me to say?

Sally: I’m just mainly curious as to why you agreed to come out with me since we’ve established this was not a date, but also really wasn’t about work. We could have had this five-minute conversation in the office.

Adam: I mean, isn’t it obvious at this point? I’m here for the scintillating conversation.

Sally: Or maybe you were hoping that the news of this non-date would get back to someone in particular and make them jealous?

Adam: Oh! Maybe you were hoping that jack would hear about it.

Sally: [ Sighs ] You know, I actually haven’t thought about him once since we sat down.

Adam: Really?

Sally: I was too busy enjoying myself. And whether or not you want to admit it, I think you have been, too.

Adam: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: Well, thank you for a wonderful evening.

Victoria: Well, we’re really glad that you could join us. It’s been a wonderful change of pace.

Ashland: Yes, it has. We’ll have to do this again soon. And you will get back to me at some point?

Nate: Definitely.

Victoria: Okay.

Ashland: You guys get home safely.

Nate: Alright.

Elena: Thanks.

Nate: You have a good evening.

Ashland: You do the same. Thank you.

[ Exhales heavily ]

Victoria: Are you okay?

Ashland: I’m fine. I may have to take it easy tomorrow, but it was worth it to have an evening like this.

Victoria: Well, I hope we have many more like it.

Ashland: I will do my best to give us that.

Abby: Sorry. It was a false alarm. Mariah just took the baby out to get some air, and she thought she’d be back before anyone noticed.

Mariah: Devon. Hi. I’m — I didn’t realize that abby called you. I’m sorry if this ruined your evening.

Devon: Oh, no, you didn’t ruin anything at all. But I’m gonna text lily and let her know everything’s okay.

Abby: And I am gonna bring this little guy to bed. Be right back. Come on, baby. Let’s go.

Mariah: I apologize. I-I just didn’t want to bother abby at work, and I figured i could handle it on my own. Then the baby started crying his head off. I had no idea what to do. I was worried that he might be sick or something, so I even called the pediatrician.

Devon: You did exactly what you were supposed to do. What did he say?

Mariah: Well, he said that a walk sometimes can lull a baby to sleep, so I tried it, and it did the trick.

Devon: Nice.

Mariah: But I just — I got so panicky and flustered, I-I forgot my phone, and I am kind of embarrassed. I crumbled under the pressure.

Devon: It doesn’t sound like that’s what you did. It sounds like you asked an expert for advice and then you did exactly what the baby needed and everything worked out fine. I’m actually happy that you were with dom and you followed your natural instincts.

Mariah: Man, this being a mom thing is not for wimps. It’s a lot harder than it looks.

Devon: Yeah.
