Lexie: Okay, okay, now, from finger is Theo, I'm the pointer, and you, my darling husband, are the thumb.

Abe: Oh, really? Uh-huh. The thumb, the head, the boss finger -- is that it? I like that. You know what? The head, the boss finger, wants you to go in there and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Lexie: Ooh, fun. Yay! Okay, sweetheart, see you later.

Abe: We'll come in with a surprise later, okay. [Laughs]

Lexie: Oh, sweetheart. Do you have any idea how grateful I am to have you home with me and Theo? Abe, honey, I mean, you are glad to be home, aren't you?

Abe: Oh, yeah, yeah. I'm sorry. I am very glad. I'm just -- it's just the damn black-glove investigation. It just has me so distracted.

Lexie: Well, talk to me. What's the latest?

Abe: Well, all right. Well, this is Patrick. We had him, but we lost him.. E.J.'s the pointer. Going after my department, going on TV, accusing us of violating his civil liberties. And then we come to the D.A., who has promised to fire anybody who so much as gives Wells a parking ticket.

Lexie: Abe, you're still the boss.

Abe: Unless I continue to investigate Wells, and then I'm out of a job.

Lexie: Well, is there any way you can, I don't know, do it on the sly?

Abe: Not without your help. And I don't want to get you involved.

Lexie: Abe Carver, if I have to spend one more evening listening to you toss and turn, you are going to need a body cast. Now, please, let me help.

Abe: Okay, all right. I need to speak to your mother. She's our only chance.

Kate: Don't mess with that. The caterers are gonna do it.

Billie: It's okay. I need to keep busy. How many people are coming?

Kate: I invited Lucas and Will, but Sami's cooking a turkey, and Lucas feels like he has to eat it. Aside from her other deficiencies, Sami's a rotten cook, so I don't know why.

Billie: How about this? Maybe Will is actually happy to be spending Thanksgiving with both of his parents. I think it's great.

Kate: You think it's great? It's great that he's gonna be sucked into Sami's dysfunctional world again?

Billie: Listen, he's a big boy, Mom. If he wants to give his heart to somebody who comes with some baggage, then so be it.

Kate: Ooh, now, are we talking about Lucas' heart or yours?

Chelsea: How do I look?

Kate: Oh, honey.

Billie: Cute.

Kate: You look perfect. In fact, I think you have upped the standard. Your mother and I are going to have to dress for dinner now.

Billie: Oh, Mom, I forgot to tell you. Bo has invited Chelsea to the Bradys' family Thanksgiving, and I forgot to call him and thank him.

Chelsea: Oh, Mom. I was invited, but...not by dad. Nick Fallon is taking me.

Billie: You are crashing the Bradys' Family Thanksgiving?

Maggie: So, let me get this straight -- Nick has invited Chelsea to the Brady Thanksgiving dinner? Why?

Abby: Chelsea's not gonna wreck the Brady Thanksgiving. She just wants to be included.

Maggie: Okay, you're right. I'm probably worrying for nothing. So, where is he picking her up?

Abby: At her grandmother's.

Maggie: [Laughs] Okay. So, she's trying to impress him with Kate's penchant for showy living.

Abby: Believe me, I don't think Chelsea wants to impress Nick, but that might change.

Maggie: Abby, what have you been up to?

Abby: Geek rehab. Nick asked me, so I took him shopping.

Maggie: Oh, I can't wait to see the results.

Abby: Good, he can't wait to show you. Nick, come on! You've been in there forever. Are you ready? Come out!

Maggie: [Gasps]

Nick: [Clears throat]

Abby: [Chuckles]

Nick: [Laughs]

Maggie: Oh, you're gorgeous!

Nick: Ask me where I got my genes. Get it, genes with a "g"?

Abby: Nick, you're probably not gonna want to use that one on Chelsea. She'll hit you.

Nick: Oh, Chelsea, I got to get going, okay? All right, I'll see you guys later.

Maggie: Don't want to keep her waiting.

Abby: Yeah, you definitely don't want to do that.

Maggie: You did so good. He looks so preppy and so together. My goodness..

Bo: Hey, Ma.

Caroline: Oh, hi.

Bo: This place looks great. You outdid yourself.

Caroline: Oh, no, no, no. My daughter-in-law did.

Bo: Hope?

Caroline: Yes. You know, since Zack died, I just haven't seen Hope really happy like this before. You, too.

Bo: Yeah, well, it's good to be back home. These are for you.

Caroline: Oh.

Shawn: Hey!

Bo: Hey, Pop.

Shawn: Hey, where are my children?

Bo: We're here. Well, one of them.

Caroline: Roman's on his way after the shift's over. And Kayla and Steve are on their way.

Hope: Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

Bo: Hey, hey, hey.

Hope: Hi.

Bo: Hi.

Hope: Happy Thanksgiving.

Stephanie: Hi.

Caroline: Oh, my goodness. Look at you.

Stephanie: Thank you.

Caroline: Turn around. Oh, beautiful.

Stephanie: Thanks. Aunt Hope got it for me.

Caroline: Oh, really?

Stephanie: Oh, boy. I have so much to be grateful for. Every wish I've made is coming true. Oh, my. We haven't even carved the turkey yet, and I'm already planning our Christmas.

[Laughs] All right, help me hang this sign.

Bo: I'm beginning to think we might have made a mistake.

Hope: No, if we hadn't supplied Steve with those memories, Kayla wouldn't be alive right now. We did what was best. I missed you last night.

Bo: Yeah, blame E.J. Wells.

Hope: You should have talked to me about the investigation like you used to, Brady.

Bo: Yeah, I wanted to, but, you know, I just got back home. Things are really good. I didn't want to push it.

Hope: Then I'll push it. Back in my bed...tonight.

Bo: Okay.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives.

Chelsea: I'm not crashing the precious Brady Thanksgiving. I'm going as Nick Fallon's guest.

Kate: Well, I think that's impressive. It's the way to get what you want..

Billie: Mom! Does this Nick guy have any idea why you're not gonna be welcomed there?

Chelsea: I don't know, Mom. And I don't care. What happened with Zack is none of his business.

Billie: Well, it is if you're gonna be walking in on his arm.

Chelsea: Please, like I would ever.

Billie: Chelsea, this is Bo and Hope's first Thanksgiving since Zack died.

Chelsea: You don't have to rub it in.

Billie: Honey, I'm not trying to rub it in. I am just saying that you need to be sensitive to how they feel. They're not gonna be happy to have you sitting there at the table.

Chelsea: Mom, I am a Brady, too. I am part of that family. [Doorbell rings] I have a right to be included.

Nick: You said not to dress like a loser. [Clears throat]

Chelsea: What's with all the blinking?

Nick: Uh, contacts. I'm just not used to them yet.

Billie: Hi. Come on in. I'm Billie. I'm Chelsea's mom. And you are?

Nick: [Laughs] Whoo! Never better.

Lexie: My mother's a part of the E.J. Wells investigation?

Abe: We found tarot cards in his safe-deposit box.

Lexie: Why would E.J. have tarot cards?

Abe: I don't know. That's what we need Celeste to tell us. We know he's dirty. We know those cards mean something.

Lexie: So, what did my mother say?

Abe: Well, she said it was impossible to tell their significance, and then when she saw them, she got uncomfortable. Then she said they were meaningless.

Lexie: You think she's lying.

Abe: I think she's scared. I think she knows that those cards are at the root of this black-glove business, but now thanks to the D.A., we can't investigate it. Celeste is our only chance.

Lexie: Okay, well, I'll talk to her and try to get her to help.

Abe: Good. You'll probably have better luck if I'm not here, so I'm gonna go down to the station. Roman's holding down the fort. But I'll be back before dinner. Thanks, sweetheart.

Lexie: Oh, sweetheart. Anytime...anything. I love you.

Abe: Oh, I love you. Be back.

Lexie: Okay.

Bo: Ma's right over there. Being back in your bed -- it's gonna be a really, really good thing, but...

Hope: But what? Don't worry about Stephanie. She's gonna be staying at the Salem Inn with her parents.

Bo: That's good. Now, you're sure you're ready?

Hope: Are you ready?

Bo: Mm-hmm. What about what's his name?

Hope: Don't worry about what's his name. He's not part of my life anymore.

Bo: Nice.

Frankie: Are you kidding me? That's it? That's all you got? Can't you put a little more backbone in it than that? Come on.

Bo: Backbone?

Hope: Show him what you got.

Frankie: There you go.

Chelsea: Well,'s a good thing you're a doctor... 'cause I'm about to be sick.

Nick: Actually, I'm not a doctor.

Chelsea: Whatever, Nick. I don't care.

Abby: Hey, what did I miss?

Chelsea: Oh, nothing for you to worry about.

Bo: Hey, Ab.

Abby: Happy Thanksgiving.

Hope: Happy Thanksgiving, sweetheart. You look beautiful.

Nick: I brought Chelsea as my guest. I hope that's okay with you guys.

Bo: Happy Thanksgiving.

Chelsea: Happy Thanksgiving, Hope. And you, too, Dad.

Hope: I'm okay. It's okay.

Chelsea: Hope just totally iced me.

Nick: You want my advice?

Chelsea: No, not really.

Nick: Stop giving people reasons to hate you.

Abby: Hey, apple-cider doughnut?

Nick: Oh, thanks, Abby.

Abby: Chelse?

Chelsea: No, actually, no thanks. I'd rather jab my eye out with a fork. I said thanks.

Shawn: Did you make those?

Abby: With my own two hands.

Caroline: You know, they look like one of Alice's famous recipes.

Chelsea: Grandma Caroline, I just wanted to say thank you for letting me stay.

Caroline: You're welcome... if you behave yourself.

Chelsea: What a cow.

Abby: Chelsea, why should she be nice to you? I mean, you're always rude..

Chelsea: I'm sorry, Abby. We can't all be little doughnut makers, okay?

Abby: You know, I miss my parents and my brother, and thanks to the Bradys, I'm not spending Thanksgiving alone. It's called gratitude. You should try it sometime.

Nick: Way to win friends and influence enemies.

Chelsea: They never give me a chance.

Nick: This is your chance. Don't blow it.

Bo: I talked to Shawn this morning. He's -- he's a bit mad 'cause I think his boss is a crook. So he might not show up. Sorry.

Hope: Well, it's not your fault. He's gonna make his own mistakes.

Bo: Mm-hmm. And if he gets in over his head?

Hope: Then we'll be there to pick him up.

Bo: Yeah.

[Door opens]

Max: [Clears throat] Mimi's family isn't really doing Thanksgiving this year.

Mimi: Or any year.

Max: So I asked her to join us.

Caroline: Well, I think that was a very good idea. Welcome.

Mimi: Really?

Caroline: Mimi, I could never turn you away.

Mimi: Thank you.

Max: All right, come on, Mom. Let's go say hi to people.

Caroline: Yeah.

Mimi: I wish I had told you that Shawn was Claire's father. Knowing you had a grandchild and that Zack's liver saved her life -- it might have really helped this past year. I'm sorry.

Celeste: Well, all together for Thanksgiving.

Lexie: Yeah, it doesn't get much better, huh?

Celeste: Ah, sausage stuffing -- my favorite, yeah.

Lexie: Abe's, too.

Celeste: Where is he?

Lexie: Working.

Celeste: On Thanksgiving?

Lexie: Well, you saw the news -- that stunt E.J. Wells pulled. Mom, Abe's job is on the line. He needs your help. Look, I know he asked and you refused, so now I'm asking.

Celeste: I'll give you the same answer, darling. No.

Lexie: Oh, Mom. Being brave means doing the right thing, even when you're scared. You told me that a long time ago.

Celeste: I have to go, Alexandra.

Lexie: Mom, please, just try to be brave. If not for me and Abe, then for Theo.

Celeste: Don't bring Theodore in this.

Lexie: I have to. Your grandson is so proud that his father is a policeman. How do you think he'll feel if his hero gets fired because his grandmother won't help?

Celeste: I am trying to protect Theodore the best way I can. You have no idea what this is about.

Lexie: Okay, then tell me.

Celeste: No, Alexandra. I've already told you, I don't want to be involved.

Lexie: Mom, you're shaking. Please, please just tell me what's going on.

Kate: So, I told their C.E.O. that there was just no way -- Billie, have you heard one word I've said?

Billie: No. I was thinking.

Kate: What are you thinking about?

Billie: [Sighs] Steve. I got a message from him.

Kate: He's getting out of the hospital. I bet he can't wait to see you. Quarantined with Kayla -- talk about death by boredom.

Billie: Okay, listen, it wasn't to make a date, Mom. It was to tell me that he didn't really get his memory back.

Kate: So how did he tell her all those things?

Billie: Apparently, Bo and Hope wrote everything down on a piece of paper and gave it to him.

Kate: [Laughing] Oh, my God. Steve was using a cheat sheet?

Billie: Yeah, but some of his memories are real.

Kate: So, let me get this straight -- he told Kayla a lie, and yet he wants you to know the truth. What does that mean?

Billie: I don't know. What does it matter?

Kate: It does matter, because I'm looking at my beautiful daughter and she's looking like a lovesick moose and I worry, and, frankly, I don't want the lines.

Billie: All right, fine. He said he still has feelings for me.

Kate: Oh, baby. That's wonderful.

Billie: I don't know. What does it matter? I mean, you know, there's still no guarantee that he's not gonna get his memory back tomorrow and remember everything about Kayla.

Kate: Of course there's no guarantees. This is life we're talking about here, not snow tires, okay? So, what are you gonna do?

Billie: Nothing.

Kate: Nothing. You're going to do nothing. You have a chance here at passion and excitement in your life, and you're gonna do nothing?

Billie: Passion and excitement aren't dependable, Mom, and neither is Steve.

Kate: What has happened to you? You used to have guts.

Billie: Life happened, Mom.

Kate: You know, your life hasn't been easy. I know that. But what's the point of being alive if your whole life is going to be dull and predictable? You need to go after what it is you want, Billie.

Billie: No matter who it hurts?

Stephanie: It is perfect.

Frankie: Yeah, the heart, I don't know.

Stephanie: [Laughs]

Chelsea: Look at her. She acts like she's a 10-year-old.

Nick: Avoid the lime-green Jell-O.

Chelsea: What are you -- a fortune cookie?

Nick: It's my way of saying that jealously is a trap.

Chelsea: I'm not jealous of Stephanie that her parents got back together.. I could really care less. Oh, Abby. Hey. Thanks. Nick gave me some of his earlier. It was really good..

Abby: Thanks. So, what are you guys doing?

Nick: Pretending that Chelsea doesn't care about her parents getting back together.

Abby: Look, I know how she feels, okay? I felt the same way about my parents. Yeah, my parents were this close to getting back together.

Nick: Until your dad realized he was in love with his wife.

Caroline: Shawn? Shawn?

Bo: Ma needs your help.

Shawn: Right.

Max: Hey, Bo.

Bo: Hey, bud.

Max: Nice crowd, huh?

Bo: Yeah, a couple surprises.

Max: Hmm. Yeah, I didn't expect to see Chelsea here.

Bo: Or Mimi.

Max: Yeah.

Bo: Listen, I don't know what your relationship is with her --

Max: Look, we're just friends. We're friends, okay?

Bo: Right, okay. Be careful. She's a Lockhart. That's a hard past to get rid of.

Max: Bo, Bo, trust me, okay? We're just friends. All right?

Abby: Hey, Max. Happy Thanksgiving.

Max: Right back at you, kid. Um...can I talk to you? I hear you're the go-to guy to get things done.

Nick: Depends on the thing. I mean, if you need your genes mapped, I'm your guy.

Mimi: Huh?

Chelsea: Um, yeah, don't ask him what he means by that.

Max: Actually, I'm trying to track down a newspaper photographer.

Abby: For what?

Mimi: Well, we saw the shot of some marines shipping out, and one of them looked like Philip.

Abby: Do you know who took the photo?

Max: It was Art something. We left messages, but he's not calling us back.

Nick: Well, then, you got to leave one he can't resist.

Mimi: Like?

Nick: Like you are the rep from a fancy journalism school that's giving out prize money for war coverage.

Mimi: Oh, well, I'm really not supposed to be lying right now.

Max: Well, then, I'll do it for you.

Mimi: Oh, thank you.

Max: Thanks.

Abby: Nick, since when did you become so sneaky?

Chelsea: Don't look at me. I didn't each your cousin how to lie.

Nick: Chelse has been teaching me a lot of things, like the end does justify the means.

Chelsea: Don't call me Chelse.

Nick: Abby does.

Chelsea: Abby's my friend.

Caroline: Look who's here.

Hope: Hey, Happy Thanksgiving, sweetie.

Steve: Got room for two more?

Kayla: Happy Thanksgiving.

Stephanie: Hey, Mama.

Kayla: Hey, baby girl. I love you.

Caroline: My darling Kayla. Oh, welcome home.

Shawn: Welcome home, darling.

Kayla: Thanks, Pop.

Stephanie: We are gonna be so happy. You, me, and mom -- a family.

Frankie: All right, come on, smile. Come on, have a good time. All right, ready? Here we go and...beautiful. Hope, I heard that.

Bo: [Laughs]

Max: Speech, speech, speech.

Steve: I think they mean you, baby.

Kayla: Well...I'm still pretty weak. I didn't even think I'd be able to come today. But then Steve showed up with this fancy wheelchair and invited me for a ride. And I thought with you by my side, I can do anything. And I want to thank you all for being the very best family anyone could ever have.

Bo: Oh, yeah. The Bradys, yeah.

Caroline: Cheers.

Bo: It's a miracle that Steve and Kay are home for Thanksgiving, and it's all thanks to Nick Fallon -- this young man over here -- who saved my sister's life. To Nick -- may the wind be always at your back.

Hope: To Nick.

Nick: Okay, if you insist. [Clears throat] I just -- I happen to have something prepared.

Caroline: Oh, my goodness.

Nick: I want to thank Sony Pictures. I want to thank my agent. Just kidding. That's my Oscar speech. [Laughter]

Bo: That was wacky.

Nick: Actually...I didn't save Kayla's life. You all did. Your family never stopped praying. They practically lived at the hospital. I'm used to science coming to the rescue.. I never saw love pull somebody back from the edge, so in honor of all of you, I want to read a quote that the governor of the great State of Oklahoma, Brad Henry, once said. [Clears throat] "Families are the compass that guide us. They're the inspiration to reach great heights...and our comfort when we occasionally falter." My folks are overseas right now, and this is my first Thanksgiving without them. I just have to tell you how incredible it is to be part of such a wonderful family, even if it's just for today.

Bo: Welcome.

Caroline: Thank you. That's so sweet of you. Thank you for everything.

Nick: Oh, excuse me. Why are you leaving? What's wrong?

Chelsea: What's wrong? Nick, I have been trying to get that family, my family, to accept me. And they just pull you in like some long-lost brother.

Nick: They're just relieved. They've had a bad time, a bad year. They almost lost Kayla, and this is Bo and Hope's first Thanksgiving without Zack.

Chelsea: You don't think that I know that? That I don't feel terrible about it whenever I look at them?

Nick: How would I? How would anyone know how you feel? You never tell them.

Chelsea: Hope. I just, um...I just wanted to say, first of all, that, um, I'm really glad that Kayla's okay and everything. I know it's my fault that Zack's not here, and I'm sorry.

Steve: Hey, Hope. Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry to interrupt. Can I talk to you outside for a minute?

Hope: Would you excuse me?

Steve: I'm sorry.

Nick: How'd it go?

Chelsea: Just like the rest of my life -- lousy. I hate this family.

Nick: Chelsea.

Abby: Nick, just let her go.

Celeste: Darling, I didn't want to involve you and Theodore and Abraham. Please believe me.

Lexie: Yeah, I believe you. Now, tell me what's going on.

Celeste: What do you think, Alexandra? You know who you are. You know where you came from.

Lexie: Oh, no.

Celeste: Yes. Darling, I am so sorry that you were born into this family.. But there's no escaping it.

Lexie: Okay, so, you're saying that all the things that have been happening to the Bradys these last few months --

Celeste: Not just months, Alexandra. The last two decades. One family has caused all that pain. Our family -- the DiMeras.

Abe: I've been waiting for you to say that.

Lexie: Abe.

Celeste: And now you can forget everything you heard.

Abe: Well, that's not gonna happen. We have to talk.

Celeste: Well, that's a shame, Abraham, because I'm leaving.

Abe: Listen, you can't run away, not from the DiMeras, not from the law.

Celeste: I'm not running. I'm protecting myself.

Abe: Who threatened you, Celeste? I can get you protection.

Celeste: [Laughs] From the DiMera family. There is no place to hide. The best way to be safe is to keep your eyes and your mouth shut.

Abe: Kayla and Steve were poisoned. Max and Stephanie were almost killed on the racetrack. Bo lost his job. Now, how am I supposed to shut my eyes to that?

Celeste: You think about the people who are counting on you, who need you to come home at the end of the day. You think about my grandson and my daughter.

Abe: I am thinking about them. I don't want my son growing up thinking bullies win. I don't want my wife to live in fear. Lexie was blackmailed. Theo was threatened. Have you forgotten that? We have to fight back, Celeste.

Celeste: I've seen what happens to people who fight back. And I'm sorry, but I am just not that noble. I can't help you, Abraham. I won’t.

Lexie: All right, Mom. You don't have to. But tell Theo why. Tell him his grandmother helps bad guys.

Steve: So...did you talk to Billie?

Hope: I told her everything you wanted me to say.

Steve: So she understands I was faking getting my memory back to help Kayla?

Hope: She's very worried about your family, Steve. She can't imagine how Stephanie and Kayla are gonna react when they find out the truth.

Steve: I'll just have to deal with that, won't I?

Stephanie: Dad!

Steve: Did she say anything else?

Hope: She feels the way she's always felt.

Steve: I better get back.

Hope: Hold on a second because I have a question for you. I just need to know something, okay? Is this the way it's going to be? I play go-between for you and Billie while you play devoted family man to Stephanie and Kayla? Kayla loves you... deeply and forever.

Steve: You trying to guilt me into being in love with Kayla?

Hope: I'm not trying to make you feel guilty. I'm just trying to get you to see this problem. Face it. Steve, you've got to figure out a way to tell Stephanie and Kayla the truth without breaking their hearts.

Steve: I will. I'll do something. Just please don't say anything about Billie.

Hope: We'd better get back inside.

Steve: Hey, wait, wait, wait. Can I use your phone... for a second?

Hope: Don't be long. Stephanie and Kayla are waiting for you.

Steve: Hey, Billie?

Billie: Steve.

Steve: Uh, could I see you tomorrow, in the morning?

Billie: I don't know.

Kate: Billie, whatever he's asking, say yes.

Steve: Listen, I know you must be confused. I am, too. But I just need, you know, a little time to explain.

Billie: Okay.

Steve: Okay, I'll call in the morning to make a plan. I miss you.

Billie: Me, too.

Stephanie: Who do you miss, Dad?

Steve: Who do I miss? Your Uncle Jack, my brother.

Stephanie: Okay, well, we all miss you inside. Come on, it's time for dinner.

Steve: Okay, I'm coming. [Indistinct conversations]

Shawn: The rest of you, listen up, okay? Frankie has -- Max, help me carve, boy. The rest of you, listen up. Frankie has an announcement.

Bo: Frankie has an announcement?

Frankie: I don't want to make a big deal out of it, but you all know that I'm leaving. I'm going back to D.C. -- Great job opportunity. Oh, I know, you're gonna miss me. Look, I don't want to make a big deal out of it. I love you, I'll miss you, but I'm not going away forever. You know where I'm at, all right?

Hope: We love you, Frankie. And you better come back and visit.

Max: Um [Clears throat] Uh, to Frankie -- we'll miss you, brother.

Bo: Dig in.

Hope: You used my phone to call Billie, didn't you?

Steve: Yeah. [Indistinct conversations]

Hope: If you leave now...

Steve: Hope, I can't keep lying to them forever. It was supposed to be a temporary fix, not a lifetime deal.

Kate: So, you're meeting with Steve. See, see, that's proof.

Billie: Of what?

Kate: That you're winning.

Billie: Mom, this isn't a competition between Kayla and me.

Kate: Well, of course it's a competition, and don't you forget that -- not if you want that man.

Billie: Mom, I want him to want me enough to meet me out in the open where everyone can see us, not at some stupid out-of-the-way diner down on Route 4.

Kate: That's going to happen, Billie.

Billie: Is it, Mom? Or is this just a whole replay of me and Bo? Good enough for the bedroom, but not for life? Sorry.

Kate: Oh, my God. Self-pity isn't going to get you anywhere.

Billie: This is not about self-pity. I'm just being realistic.

Kate: [Sighs] Honey, you have lost the will to fight, and that's why you're feeling so defeated here.

Billie: What is there to fight for, Mom? Steve is at Thanksgiving dinner with his wife and his daughter.

Kate: Yes, yes, exactly. He's surrounded by Bradys, and yet he took the time out to call you. You are going to be getting the brass ring, my dear, not Kayla.

Billie: I don't know, Mom.

Kate: Well, I do. And I also know this fight is going to get very dirty, but I am betting on you. Winner take all.

Celeste: Darling, grand-mère has to leave. [Sighs] Come here. I love you all so much.

Lexie: Then stay, Mom. Hey, it's Thanksgiving. It's time to be with family. And this is our family, Mom -- you, me, Abe, and Theo. No one else matters.

Abe: You know, a united family is the strongest force in the world. I mean, separate we're just fingers on a hand, but together we're a fist. [Oven timer dings]

Lexie: Ooh, I've got a pie in the oven. Honey, would you set the table, please?

Abe: Ah, sure. But how many plates?

Celeste: Four.

Lexie: I'm so glad you're staying.

Celeste: Darling, there's no place I'd rather be.

Shawn: Hold on, hold on. Kayla has something to add.

Bo: Oh, okay.

Kayla: Well, just a little something. I just -- I just want to tell you guys I read this passage in a book called "Things Worth Fighting For," and it made me think of our family, you know. It talks a lot about families and about how happiness comes from -- from not being perfect, from just showing up -- showing up for dinner. Simple things. About each of us accepting each other for who we are. And for being thankful. And I personally feel so thankful to all of you for fighting for me. And being home right now with all of you and Steve and Stephanie, I just -- I feel so blessed.

Chelsea: I hate them. I hate every single one of them, and most of all, I hate Hope.

Billie: Honey, what happened?

Chelsea: I tried to be nice to them, Mom. I really did. I tried. And I told Hope that I was sorry about what happened to Zack, and she just ignored me. She just went off with the pirate.

Billie: Steve.

Kate: So, how was he? The ever-dutiful husband?

Chelsea: He never left Kayla's side all night.

Kate: Well, he did at one point. He just didn't let anyone know.

Chelsea: What's that mean?

Billie: Steve called. He wants to see me tomorrow.

Chelsea: Why?

Billie: To see where we stand.

Chelsea: Well, you were in bed with dad. I mean, you two are practically reunited. Why are you even thinking about Steve?

Billie: Chelsea, I told you, nothing happened between your father and I. It could have gone further, but we both decided not to let it.

Chelsea: No, not you both. You decided, because you're still holding out for the one-eyed pirate. Face it, Mom. He's never gonna leave his wife or his daughter for you.

Kate: Hey, hey, hey. Don't talk to your mother that way.

Chelsea: Look, I'm sorry, but this is just so frustrating. You had dad in bed.

Billie: This is none of your business.

Chelsea: It is totally my business. When you passed on you and dad, you just didn't pass you on and dad. You passed on all of us. Mother, that shot of us being a family belonged to me, too, and you just trashed it.

Billie: I do not want to be married to your father.

Chelsea: Fine. Just think of yourself. That's all you ever do.

Kate: All right, all right. That's it. You need to leave. You need to get out. Don't come back until you can learn to hold your tongue.

Chelsea: Fine. I don't want to have anything to do with you anyway or this stupid night.

Kate: Honey, I'm telling you, that girl needs to grow up. Every time she doesn't get what she wants, everyone else has to pay.

Billie: You know what? You're the one who told her to go after what she wants and to do whatever it takes to get it, so we don't suffer, Mom. I do.

Kate: Honey, it's not my fault if you don't know how to handle her.

Billie: Nobody knows how to handle her. She wants her father to love her.. She wants her father to love me. And God help anyone who gets in the way.

Chelsea: All I have to do is send this to Hope and Steve, and then they'll know that my parents can't stay away from each other, that they belong together.

Belle: I have hurt Philip as badly as I could. And all I can do is take my anger out on Shawn.

Shawn D.: You know I don't think Belle is gonna be stopping by anymore. I don't think she wants to have anything to do with me.

Max: So, let's start making some calls and searching the internet to find out what happened to Andrew Spivey, A.K.A. Philip Kiriakis.

Bo: We got to crack this thing before someone we love winds up dead.
