Jack: Abe carver.

Jennifer: [ Yawns ] What?

Jack: [ Yawns ] Ah. Morning, beautiful.

Jennifer: Mm. Good morning. What are you doing?

Jack: What? Huh?

Jennifer: What are you up to now, Jack?

Jack: Uh... I can't get anything by you, can I?

Jennifer: That's right. Got that right.

Jack: So here it is. Good morning, my beautiful wife.

Jennifer: Jack, you made me breakfast?

Jack: Mm-hmm, and I picked the flowers myself, out of the neighbors' yard this time.

Jennifer: Well, now I feel like a bad wife.

Jack: Why?

Jennifer: Here I was, just acting all suspicious while you were up so early, and you were really doing something very sweet for me. I'm sorry. Thank you.

Jack: It's nothing.

Jennifer: Mmm. Whoo, that's good.

Jack: Yeah, fresh-squeezed.

Jennifer: Mmm.

Jack: I knew you'd love it.

Jennifer: I love you. I had fun last night. Didn't you? I think it's so great that Abe and Lexie are just getting a second chance at love.

Jack: Well, they're -- they're a great couple. You know, not as great as us, but they're -- they're close.

Jennifer: I just wish you and Abe would drop this whole investigation. You know, you're giving me and Lexie heart failure. Every time you come home late, Jack, I just completely freak out.

Jack: Well, I'm -- I'm sorry I'm upsetting you.

Jennifer: Really? Sorry enough to quit? Please promise me that you are going to keep yourself out of danger.

Man: [ Distorted ] Abe, don't turn around.

Abe: Who are you?

Man: A friend.

Abe: What do you want?

Man: He's back.

Abe: Wait! Wait! [ Thinks ] Who's back?

Lexie: Honey, you know what I loved about having Jack and Jennifer over last night? It was so normal. Burgers on the grill, red wine, even Jack's unfunny jokes.

Abe: [ Chuckles ]

Lexie: But the best part was when -- what's that?

Abe: Oh, it's nothing.

Lexie: May I see? It's a picture of my father. Why are you looking at this?

Victor: Good morning, Nico. There's coffee.

Nico: No thanks, sir. I wanted to give you my morning report.

Victor: Oh, yes.

Nico: Your wife stayed in her room all night long.

Victor: Ah, good.

Nico: Looks like she's getting the message.

Victor: It's about time. Can't have her running off the way she did the other night. Keep up the surveillance, Nico.

Nico: 24/7, sir. Mrs. K. Won't be able to make a move without me knowing where she is and what she's doing.

Victor: Thank you.

Nico: Bye.

Victor: If Nicole tries to pull another escape like that, she'll find herself doing a life sentence for the murder of Colin Murphy.

Nicole: [ Moaning ]

Nicole: Give me the gun! Let go! Aah!

Nicole: Aah!

[ Gasping ]

Brady: Nicole?

Nicole: I didn't mean to. Oh, god, I didn't mean to do it. I didn't, I didn't, I didn't...

Brady: All right, all right, it's just -- it's just -- that was just a dream. It was just a dream, okay? It's going to be all right. 

Announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days Of Our Lives.

Brady: Are you okay? You were screaming.

Nicole: I didn't mean to do it.

Brady: Didn't mean to do what, Nicole?

Nicole: What?

Brady: What didn't you mean to do? Tell me. I'm -- I'm very trustworthy, and I don't want you to be scared. I won't tell my grandfather.

Nicole: Um... Victor was mad at me for something. I -- I can't remember what. I was afraid he was going to hurt me.

Brady: Is my grandfather threatening you? Because --

Nicole: No, it -- it was -- it was just a dream, like you said. Brady, I don't know what I would do without you. There are so many things I wish I could do over.

Brady: What do you mean?

Nicole: I've made one mistake after another, my whole life.

Victor: You're making one hell of a mistake right now.

Jennifer: You know, making breakfast, you just scored major points with that.

Jack: Really?

Jennifer: Yeah.

Jack: I think I'm going to go for a 3-pointer now.

Jennifer: You don't even know what a 3-pointer is.

Jack: I do, too. Yes. I'll show you -- I'll show you I know what a 3-pointer is.

Jennifer: Ha ha ha.

Jack: Here's one...

Jennifer: Jack!

Abby: Mom, dad, I'm outta here!

Jennifer: Wait, baby, no!

Jack: Wait a minute!

Jennifer: It's your first day of school! We have to kiss you goodbye and wish you luck.

Jack: Get in here.

Jennifer: I need to see what she's wearing. I'm scared.

Jennifer: What in the...

Jack: Well.

Abby: Is there a problem?

Jennifer: Abigail Joanna, what in the world do you have on?

Abby: You picked it out.

Jack: Getting hip in your old age, huh?

Abby: Dad, reason with her. This is what all the kids are wearing.

Jennifer: What happened to the t-shirt that you're supposed to wear under this shirt?

Abby: It's a hot day.

Jennifer: Not that hot. And -- and what -- what are all these accessories and those stockings, and what did you do to your brand-new sneakers? You wrote all over them?

Abby: Free speech. Tell her, dad.

Jack: Uh... I appreciate your creativity and your devotion to the first amendment.

Jennifer: Jack --

Jack: But no daughter of mine is going to be dressed like that the first day of seventh grade.

Jennifer: Thank you. Now go put the shirt on that goes underneath that shirt, and the accessories -- get rid of them, and your shoes, I don't even know what to do about your sh--

Jack: The shoes are cool. I think the shoes are cool. I think I might even go downstairs myself and write all over my shoes. But you, young lady, get into your room, get changed quick before you miss the bus.

Abby: This is so outrageous.

[ Muttering ]

Jack: Mm.

[ Door slams ]

Jennifer: I may need to go supervise this change.

Jack: I think so.

Jennifer: See, what would I do if you weren't here, Jack? How would I be able to handle all of Abby's teenage years alone?

Jack: You won't have to. Take your time. You'll need it.

Jennifer: Where will you be?

Jack: Me? I'll be right here, safe in bed, where I won't be making any trouble.

Jennifer: Good. That's a good spot for you -- right there.

Jack: Ha ha.

Jack: Okay. All right... Abe carver. I'm going to find out what you're really up to.

Lexie: Why do you have a picture of my father? What's going on? And don't tell me nothing.

Abe: This is probably going to sound like one of your mother's premonitions.

Lexie: What?

Abe: I met someone last night when I went to get the wine at Salem Place, and it was real. It wasn't a vision or a ghost. Someone I'd never seen before.

Lexie: Okay, so you saw a man.

Abe: Or a woman. I can't be sure.

Lexie: What was this person doing, Abe?

Abe: It's what they said that got to me. They said, "he's back." Then I saw a name written on a wall... your father's name -- Stefano.

Lexie: That's creepy, huh? My father's dead.

Abe: Sweetheart, you know, I-I shouldn't have said anything. You're just going to be thinking about this all day, and you were so happy when you came down-- it's just probably a sicko. I mean, there's so many of them out there now.

Lexie: Abe, this is a police photo. You had this sent over from the station. Why? What does seeing this picture tell you?

Abe: I have to investigate every lead.

Lexie: Oh, my god. You think my father may still be alive. 

Abe: It's not that I think your father is alive. I just can't ignore that man last night. Every lead gets followed up, no matter how farfetched it seems.

Lexie: But your lead is dead, Abe. Why are you wasting your time?

Abe: Lex --

Lexie: Why are you still following up on cases at all? You said you were going to be retiring soon, so shouldn't you be cutting back?

Abe: You're right. Speaking of retirement, the papers came through.

Lexie: They did?

Abe: Yeah.

Lexie: Ah.

Abe: I need your signature in a few places.

Lexie: Okay.

Abe: Let's see...

Lexie: My -- wait. Why mine?

Abe: It's just -- just standard, that's all. Uh, here, here, and here.

Lexie: Okay, what -- wait, wait, wait. You know I never sign anything without reading the fine print.

Abe: Ha ha.

Lexie: Okay. Mm-hmm. Survivor benefits?

Abe: It's routine.

Lexie: Well, honey, I have m my own pension. Why are you doing this? This says you're going to be taking reduced benefits. "Full benefits will accrue to the surviving spouse."

Abe: Well, I'm going to -- going to have a job. I don't need full benefits, and as you said, you're going to have your own pension. It's my way of looking out for you and Theo. You'll have an annuity in case I --

Lexie: No, no. I-I don't want to talk about that.

Abe: Well, honey, it's not my favorite topic, either, you know, but all couples protect each other this way.

Lexie: All right. All right. All right. Um... okay, um... how long before your retirement goes into effect?

Abe: Well, processing the papers takes a while. You know, that way, the guys can have more time to plan my retirement party.

Lexie: And how long is "a while," Abe?

Abe: Well, I'm still the commander. I've got some major cases to finish up.

Lexie: Oh, okay. Well, then, now you're one step closer, hmm?

Abe: Honey, and, um, a big, big step. Mm. Ha ha ha.

Brady: Uh, Nicole had a nightmare. Didn't you hear her scream?

Victor: It's a big house. I was downstairs.

Brady: Well, I was right across the hall, so I came in to see what was wrong.

Victor: And you came in, and you found my scantily clad wife in distress. Cover yourself up, for god's sakes. Thank you, Brady, for coming to Nicole's rescue -- again. Now, don't you have a meeting this morning?

Brady: Yeah, but it's at 10:00. I'm not late yet.

Victor: You will be in 45 minutes.

Brady: Right.

Nicole: [ Sighs ] Well, I'm going to get dressed, too, so if you don't mind...

Victor: I do mind. I mind you trying to take advantage of my grandson -- throwing yourself at him. Did you even have a nightmare, or did you just decoratively arrange yourself on the bed and start screaming your head off?

Nicole: You're sick.

Victor: I just know who I'm married to -- the slut of Salem. 

Jack: Oh, Abe. So sorry I'm late. Abigail's first day of school, Jennifer was having separation anxiety.

Abe: Ha ha ha. Well, I had a slight delay getting out of the house myself.

Jack: Oh, really? Lexie?

Abe: She's still as nervous as a cat. She's worried about me being in danger.

Jack: Right, right. Jennifer, too. Look, um, I couldn't help but notice last night, when you came back from the wine store, you looked a little worried about something. Did something happen at the mall?

Abe: I have a picture I want to show you, jack.

Jack: Huh? Stefano DiMera -- the late great. What about him?

Abe: Are we sure about him being the late Stefano?

Jack: Well, he is dead.

Abe: Are we sure about that?

Jack: What are you saying?

Abe: He -- last night, at the mall, this strange person follows me, and he says these words -- "he's back."

Jack: "He's back." Could be Elvis. Could be anybody.

Abe: Well, right after that, I saw Stefano's name written on the wall.

Jack: Stefano. Could you imagine the headline if Stefano was behind all the crazy stuff that's happened in this town this year? I mean, he could be behind the hit on Bo and Hope.

Abe: Exactly.

Jack: This could go all the way back to -- to Colin Murphy's murder.

Abe: I don't think so. Every clue in that case leads directly to the Kiriakis mansion.

[ Shower running ]

Jennifer: Oh, Lexie, thank you so much for doing this interview.

Lexie: Well, depression is such an important subject, so if we can help people...

Jennifer: That's great, and I know your outreach program at the hospital is going so well.

Lexie: Oh, Jennifer, the need is tremendous, especially with the older generation, who were raised to accept suffering as almost a necessary part of life.

Jennifer: Lexie, I know. I mean, my grandmother -- she has been such a rock for our family, and lately, I don't know, she's just acting so strange.

Lexie: Is she still hearing the voices?

Jennifer: I don't know, Lexie, but I'm scared. She's seeing pictures move. She's seeing visions of my dead grandfather.

Alice: It's not polite to talk behind a person's back.

Jennifer: Gram, I -- I am so sorry.

Lexie: Yeah, I-I am, too. How are you feeling today?

Jennifer: How are you really feeling today?

Alice: Oh, I'm Jim dandy, thank you.

Jennifer: Hi.

Mickey: Well, hello there.

[ All laugh ]

Jennifer: Okay.

Alice: What are you doing here? As if I didn't know.

Mickey: Uh, Jennifer invited us to come over and see the taping.

Jennifer: That's right, and Lexie and I are going to start getting ready right now, so excuse us.

Maggie: Okay.

Alice: I don't appreciate being spied on.

Maggie: That's not what we're doing.

Mickey: Mom, mom, we -- we're just concerned for you, that's all.

Alice: I don't need a babysitter. Kids.


Lexie: It's fine. It's all going to be fine, okay? Jennifer, this is Lenore Manning, one of my patients. Mrs. Manning used to suffer from depression.

Jennifer: It is so good to meet you, Mrs. Manning.

Lenore: The pleasure's mine. I'm a big fan.

Jennifer: Oh, well, thank you. Thank you very much. Are you ready for the interview? I thought it would be better if we didn't speak beforehand. It would be a little more spontaneous.

Lenore: I'm ready. I want to help others the way Dr. Carver helped me.

Jennifer: That's so great. Thank you.

Man: We're set?

Jennifer: Yes.

Man: All right. In 5, 4, 3, 2...

Jennifer: Welcome, everybody. I'm Jennifer Deveraux, and today on "In The House," we are going to be tackling a subject that most of us don't even like to think about, especially a lot of older people. They are sure that this could never happen to them. I'm talking about depression. And joining me today, I have my good friend Dr. Lexie carver, whose research, uh, the Medical Outreach program at Salem's University Hospital, has just made great strides in this field. Thank you for being with us, Lexie.

Lexie: I'm glad to be here, Jennifer.

Jennifer: And you brought one of your patients with us. Would you please introduce us?

Lexie: Yes, this is Mrs. Lenore Manning. Three years ago, Mrs. Manning lost her husband to cancer. Her husband's name was Albert. Albert's death hit you very hard, didn't it, Mrs. Manning?

Lenore: Oh, yes. You get to know a person very well when you spend 45 years together. We were looking forward to celebrating our golden wedding anniversary. Would you like to see his picture?

Jennifer: Yes, yes, I'd love to.

Lenore: This is my Albert. Had a full head of hair. Younger men were always so jealous. He used to call me from work every day at 12:00 just to tell me he loved me. Losing him was... there are no words.

Jennifer: I, uh, I understand, Mrs. Manning, and my heart goes out to you. How do you go on without your husband?

Jack: Kiriakis mansion? Okay, tell me -- who do you suspect? Victor? The gorgeous wife? The loyal butler? Who?

Abe: I'm not ruling out anyone.

Jack: Uh-huh. You remember that I told you Jennifer and I saw Nicole kissing Colin right here in this very mall, and at the same time, we saw a camera sticking out of a bush. Someone was taking pictures of them. That is blackmail. Uh-huh.

Abe: You make it sound so cut-and-dried. And if you remember, I had people falsely confessing to murder.

Jack: Oh, Abe, look, I only confessed to it because I was afraid that Jennifer actually killed Colin to protect me, so... water under the bridge, all right? Seriously, who do you suspect?

Abe: Seriously, I'm keeping that to myself for now.

Jack: But it's safe to say that your list has expanded, since you've included a dead man on the list, and -- and if that dead man's a DiMera, maybe our wives are right to worry about us.

Lenore: It happened very suddenly. I went to the store for some groceries, and when I got home, well, he was already gone. It was very hard not getting to say goodbye.

Jennifer: I-I'm sure, Mrs. Manning.

Lenore: The worst part for me was losing Albert just at that time. You see, he had just retired. Al and I had always wanted to live by the ocean. We were talking to real estate agents about selling the house and making our dream come true, but it was too late.

Lexie: Mrs. Manning, would you tell us how you handled such a tremendous loss?

Lenore: Well, I was very sad, as anyone would be who... really loved her husband. We were best friends. Nobody made me laugh like my Albert. For the first year or so, I visited our children, which helped a little. But you see, I think a part of me was still expecting Albert to walk in the door. When I finally accepted that he was really gone, that's when I became very down, stopped seeing my friends, got so I wouldn't even answer the phone when my children called to check up on me.

Lexie: In other words, you became depressed.

Lenore: Oh, my, yes. Got so bad, I didn't even get out of bed some days.

Lexie: Uh, Mrs. Manning and I met a few months ago when her daughter brought her to the clinic at the hospital. We talked, and I told her about a new medication that I thought might turn things around for her, but she wasn't interested at first. Would you tell us why, Mrs. Manning?

Lenore: I was brought up to handle my problems by myself. When bad things happened, you got through them as best you could on your own. But Dr. Carver told me some things that helped open my eyes.

Lexie: I just reminded Mrs. Manning that seniors take medication for heart disease, diabetes, and many other physical ailments, so why suffer from depression if there's a treatment?

Lenore: Being sad is one thing. Not being able to get out of bed in the morning -- that's when it's time to ask for help.

Lexie: If anyone out there watching today would like more information, please speak with your doctor. Don't suffer needlessly. Help is available.

Jennifer: That's right. We want to thank you, Mrs. Manning, so much for sharing your story.

Lenore: I know there are women out there like me who've lost their husbands, too. Maybe we gave them some hope today.

Jennifer: Yes. Losing your spouse, Mrs. Manning, at any age must be one of the most difficult things that you could ever go through.


Mickey: Mom, want me to go out to the car, get you a sweater?

Alice: No. Of course not. It's 80 degrees.

Mickey: You're shivering.

Maggie: Ooh. Where did that come from?

Alice: Someone we love is in danger. 

Victor: Oh, Brady, I want to talk to you.

Brady: I can't talk now, granddad. I'm late for my meeting.

Victor: You work for me, remember?

Brady: Okay, what did you want to talk to me about?

Nicole: Oh, Brady's busy. He doesn't have time to chat.

Victor: I'll determine what he has time for. You may go, Nicole. Surely there's a sale somewhere you're dying to spend more of my money on.

Nicole: Well, if I had my own money --

Victor: But you don't, do you?

Nicole: Shopping is my life. It's the only fun I'm allowed to have.

Nicole: I won't be free until Victor's dead. But who can I get to help me kill him?

Victor: Now you can see why I keep her on such short rein. She's like a loose cannon.

Brady: Or maybe she's just frustrated with the way you treat her.

Victor: It's for her own good. Left to her own devices, Nicole would get herself into trouble every time. Which brings me to what I want to talk to you about. How did it feel earlier when I found you with your arms around Nicole?

Alice: Well, Tom and I were luckier than most. We had years and years of a happy marriage. What I wouldn't give to have his arms around me again.

Jennifer: Gram... have you seen grandpa Tom again?

Alice: No. No, dear, I haven't, and I haven't heard any children's voices, too, thank goodness.

Jennifer: Well, that's good. I'm glad. And I know all this stuff is just an old wives' tale, but it still gives me the creeps.

Lexie: What stuff?

Jennifer: You know, all that stuff where they say a ghost comes back and then the ghost says someone's name, and then supposedly, that particular person is doomed.

Mickey: Mom -- ahem. We'll see you later, okay?

Alice: Yes, yes.

Mickey: You have an appointment, don't you?

Alice: Yes, I'm late for my manicure.

Mickey: Okay.

Maggie: All right.

Jennifer: Thanks for coming.

Maggie: Okay, sure.

Mickey: Bye-bye.

Jennifer: Bye. Gram, excuse us.

Maggie: Mickey, what's wrong?

Mickey: [ Sighs ]

Jennifer: Lexie, I hope I didn't seem unprofessional during that interview. I just felt like I was going to lose it every time Mrs. Manning was speaking.

Lexie: Yeah, me too.

Jennifer: I really wish Jack would have seen it. Then he would understand what this investigation is doing to me.

Lexie: I keep telling Abe I'm scared. I want him off the force now, but he insists on fulfilling his obligation to his job.

Abe: Jack, I know why our wives are upset. Even without Stefano DiMera in the mix, we're in dangerous territory here.

Jack: What are you talking about? We're wearing the white hat. The good guys always win.

Abe: Only in the movies, Jack. I shouldn't have let you get involved in this. You're not a police officer. There's no reason for you to risk your life. So just go back to your TV show. With Stefano DiMera possibly involved in this and Victor Kiriakis, I mean, these guys -- they just don't play. They shoot first, they ask questions later.

Jack: You're actually trying to scare me off this case.

Abe: I'm telling you, Jack, stay out of it. I'll handle things myself from here. No arguments.

Jack: You actually think I'm going to quit the biggest case of my career? You're crazy. You --

Jack: All right. Just you and me, baby. We don't need Abe Carver. We'll crack this case all on our own. 

Victor: I'm well aware of the effect that my wife has on other men. You wouldn't be human if you didn't notice how beautiful she was, and sexy.

Brady: She is all that, but you are my grandfather, and she is your wife.

Victor: Oh, and you think of her as your dear old step-granny. You think I was born yesterday?

Brady: I like Nicole. She's had a hard life, and I worry about the decisions that she makes. That's as far as my feelings go.

Victor: All right, fair enough. What about Nicole's feelings for you?

Brady: I think she appreciates what I've done for her. She likes working at the Blue Note, okay? It's not because of me, but because she likes working. She's a smart woman. It's a challenge for her. And I think she's lonely.

Victor: And she needs you so much. Nicole is playing a game with you, Brady, and you're falling for it. Don't. Nicole is my wife. She belongs in my bed. Are we clear on that?

Woman: Okay, a mushroom omelet and home fries. More coffee?

Nicole: I'm fine.

Woman #2: Colin! Colin! Colin, where have you been?

Lexie: You saw jack's face?

Jennifer: Yes, when I looked at the picture of Mrs. Manning's husband.

Lexie: Jennifer, I saw Abe's.

Jennifer: Oh, my gosh, Lexie, I thought it was just me.

Lexie: No.

Jennifer: What is going on? Your mother is having premonitions, and -- and my grandmother is seeing her dead husband, Lexie.

Lexie: Okay, this is getting too weird. Look, we need to stop thinking about this before it turns into a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Maggie: Mickey, please.

Mickey: Maggie --

Maggie: Tell me what's wrong. Don't "Maggie" me. I saw that look on your face when Alice was talking about Tom. Did -- did you see him, too? Did he say your name, Mickey?

Mickey: No, no. No on both counts. But somebody else -- somebody else saw Tom's ghost.

Maggie: Oh, god. Who?

Mickey: Abe Carver.

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Abe: Commander Carver. Who is this? Well, yes, I would like information about Colin Murphy's murder.

Jack: Colin Murphy's murder. Bingo.

Jennifer: Oh, Lexie, Jack -- Jack acted like it was no big deal, but what husband goes and gets a will without even talking to his wife? It's like he's admitting that he's in danger.

Lexie: Abe just made provisions in his retirement package for me to get an annuity in case he... oh, god.

Jennifer: It's so hard not to be scared, isn't it?

Lexie: What if... one of us... loses our husband like poor Mrs. Manning, only much sooner?

Maggie: Abe Carver saw Tom's ghost?

Mickey: That night at mom's house when Jack called us over. Abe told me that Tom's ghost appeared to him, and he called him by name.

Maggie: [ Sobs ] Oh. Oh, Mickey. Do you think that old wives' tale could come true, and that Abe is doomed?

Abe: Yes, there is a reward if the tip leads to the arrest of Murphy's murderer. So who should I check out?

Jack: A new suspect in Colin Murphy's murder case. Yeah, baby. I just got my next big story.

Victor: You're a very eligible young man, Brady. Get out there and mix it up. Find a woman you enjoy being with.


Nicole: I want to keep this feeling, Brady. I don't want it to leave.

Brady: It's a pretty good feeling, huh?

Nicole: It's way beyond good. I mean, it was like time stood still. Okay, here we go.

Brady: All right. Ready? 1, 2, 3, go.

Nicole: Whee! Oh! Push me as high as you can. Higher. I want to go to the moon and never come back.


Brady: You know what, granddad? You're right. I do need to get out there and start seeing women.

[ Thud ]

Nicole: Let go! Let go of the gun! Let go! Aah!

Nicole: Aah! Aah! Aah!

Nicole: Victor can't give me what you can give me. You're young and kind, and I need you in my life.

(On the next Days Of Our Lives.)

Philip: Why does he hate the Brady's so much?

Shawn-d: That's what DiMeras' do.

Rex: I hate being a Brady. I hate it!

Tek: The closer you get to the truth, the closer you get to danger.

Abe: That's why I'm not going to share this information with Jack.

Jack: I'm on the trail here. I can smell the truth. I just want to finish this. I really like the -- I like...

Johnny: Personally I think it's a good thing.
