Kate: Hey.

Chelsea: I'm sorry that I'm late. I totally slept through my alarm clock. I didn't hear it.

Kate: Honey, don't worry about it. You're recovering from major surgery, ok? I think you need your rest. I guess.

Kate: Actually, you know what I'm thinking? That maybe this breakfast is a bad idea.

Chelsea: No. No, no. This was my idea, okay? We're gonna have breakfast. I need to get out of that house.

Kate: Victor's all right over there, right? They're taking care of you.

Chelsea: Yeah, everybody's great. Everybody's really cool.

Kate: Okay. Well, what do you say we, um -- we order some breakfast now. What do you want to get?

Chelsea: I don't know. I'm thinking maybe just some juice. Maybe I'll get some tea.

Kate: Chelsea, come on. You know, and you're looking. Are you sure you're all right?

Daniel: I was just going to ask the same question. You promised me you'd take it easy today. You looked a little wiped yesterday at the Java café and now you're here?

Kate: You two were at the java café?

Chelsea: I'm fine, okay? Perfectly fine.

Daniel: Why do I get the feeling there's something you're trying to hide?

Philip: Good. You're awake. You haven't changed your mind about my offer?

Nicole: That I spy for you and, in exchange, you use your influence with Victor to help me with my divorce settlement.

Philip: Exactly. I'll make sure he's generous, that it'll be worth it to be rid of you.

Nicole: Gee, thanks.

Philip: You said as much yourself, Nicole.

Nicole: You know, you still haven't told me who I'd be spying on. It's Chloe, isn't it? Yeah, I know she's done something.

Philip: It's not Chloe. It is someone I think you might enjoy spending some time with.

Nicole: Oh, it's definitely not Chloe. Who Is it?

Philip: John Black.

John: You sure I can't get you something, Paul? Rolf just whipped up a killer gugelhupf. Don't know what the hell it is.

Paul: I'd like you to keep your word. My life is in shambles right now. And you promised you'd make things right.

John: I will. It's just gonna take some time.

Paul: Hey, I don't have time, John. My wife's attorney is breathing down my neck for alimony and child support, which I don't have because I've got no money, no job, and no hope of getting a job, because I'm also about to be indicted for fraud, thanks to you.

John: I think you need to relax and let me handle things. I'm putting you back on top, Paul, and when I'm finished, you're gonna be better than ever.

Paul: And how do you know that?

John: I just do. But make no mistake. When I'm done, you're gonna owe me.

Ava: Are you sure you want to hear this? Hmm? You all want to hear what your good friend, your loving husband did to me?

Angelo: They're just stalling, baby. I say we end this now. We off them all quick and clean, just like you said.

Hope: I'm not stalling. Obviously, you're gonna kill us anyway. I'd just like to know why. Steve's been my friend for many years.

Bo: Mine too. It's hard to believe he'd do anything so terrible to cause all this.

Kayla: He wouldn't. It's not in him.

Ava: Yeah, that's what you think.

Bo: Well, let's hear it. What the hell happened?

Ava: Fine, I'll tell you. I'm not gonna bore you with any of the little details. I'll just start at the end, the day that he ruined my life.

Kate: Don't you think she looks pale?

Chelsea: I am pale because I haven't seen the sun in forever.

Daniel: You feel a little clammy. You been running a fever?

Chelsea: No, I'm just sweaty because I was running late and I had to get here fast.

Daniel: You ran?

Chelsea: No, not literally. I mean, I hurried.

Daniel: What am I gonna do with you. You know what you need? You need a keeper.

Chelsea: I guess, maybe, that I do.

[Cellphone ringing]

Daniel: Hang on, hold that thought. I got to get this. Don't move. I'll be right back.

Chelsea: I am staying right here.

Kate: Chelsea. [Sighs] Chelsea, hello, Chelsea.

Chelsea: What?

Kate: Hmm. Actually, I don't like your color, and I've decided to take you home, okay?

Chelsea: No, I'm fine.

Kate: Don't you argue with me. I promised your mother that I would take care of you, and that is exactly what I'm gonna do. Come on, get up. Come, come, come. Let's go. Here you go. Come on. Get your bag.

Nicole: John Black. What do you need to know about John Black, how he organizes his sock drawer?

Philip: I want to know everything, everything he's up to.

Nicole: Why? I thought he lost it or something. That's the rumor anyway.

Philip: Yeah, he's not quite the guy you remember. He's more like... well, he's kind of like you.

Philip: Dead serious.

Nicole: I like him better already.

Philip: So, do we have a deal?

Nicole: Only if you promise to keep your end of it and get me what I deserve.

Philip: Oh, I promise you. You'll get everything you deserve and then some.

Nicole: Are you trying to be funny?

Philip: I'm serious. So, you in or out?

Nicole: Okay. You've got yourself a spy.

Philip: Great. I'll fill you in on the way.

Nicole: The way where?

Philip: To breakfast. I'd rather not talk here.

Nicole: Oh, fine. I'm starving. And I'm kind of thirsty, if you know what I mean.

Philip: Even in the morning?

Nicole: Especially in the morning. Now I just need to decide if I'm in a mimosa mood or a Bloody Mary mood.

Paul: No, our deal was you help me out, make my problem go away, and I keep your name out of this mess.

John: That was part of the plan. I'm gonna go the extra mile, Paul. I'm gonna hook you up with the kind of life you were enjoying when you were married to that rich babe. It's what you want.

Paul: I'm standing here, right?

John: Yes. And for that, I'm going to expect a little something extra.

Paul: Like what?

John: All in good time.

Ava: Well... I'm sure you all know by now that Patch and I... we were once deeply in love or at least that's what I believed... up until my wedding day. [Laughs] That was the happiest day of my life, because I was marrying my soul mate, a man that was meant for me, who was gonna be with me forever... someone who loved me and understood me like no one else ever had. And he said he felt the same way. It didn't matter that Daddy wouldn't approve. Nothing else mattered but us. It's why we ran off together, eloped to this tiny, little chapel in nowhere Nevada. I wore a simple white dress and picked my own bouquet of flowers from a nearby field. I had a laugh to think of how horrified my father would be 'cause it certainly wasn't the wedding that he'd always envisioned for me. This was simple and small and just the way that I wanted it. I was marrying the man of my dreams.

Philip: This is perfect. John just went inside. Are you ready?

Nicole: What do you want me to do?

Philip: Cozy up to him. Use your womanly wiles. You're good at that.

Nicole: Yeah, John hates me.

Philip: blank slate. And something tells me he's going for you.

Nicole: What about Marlena?

Philip: not happening. Do your thing.

Nicole: Ok, I'll work my magic. Hmm-hmm. Aren't you coming?

Philip: Uh-uh. He'd be suspicious.

Nicole: Ok.

Hey there. And put them both on his bill.

Nicole: Oh, why John Black. It is true, you are alive.

John: Do I know you?

Nicole: Oh, that's right. I heard you weren't exactly yourself. I'm sorry.

John: Oh, don't be. I'm not. No need to be sorry.

Nicole: I'm Nicole Kiriakis. Oh, I mean Walker Kiriakis. You know my ex.

John: So, you're Nicole. I've heard about you. It doesn't matter, I make up my own mind.

Nicole: I'm sure you do.

John: Him.

Nicole: May I?

John: Ok.

Nicole: I really hate to drink alone, especially in the morning. And I find this whole thing fascinating. You don't remember anything about your past?

John: No, sorry to disappoint.

Nicole: Hmm, you're not disappointing me. In fact, the new John seems much more interesting.

John: Well, you're the first person to think that.

Morgan: What in Sam Hill are you doing?

Kate: God, what I want you to do is sit down, rest a minute, and I'm going to take you upstairs, and put you to bed.

Chelsea: I'm really not feeling so hot all of a sudden.

Kate: Chelsea. Chelsea. Oh, my God, Chelsea. Chelsea. Honey, wake up. Chelsea. Henderson. Call an ambulance. Hurry.

Daniel: What the hell happened here?

Kate: Where the hell did you come from?

Daniel: She wasn't looking too good at the pub, so I thought I'd come by and check on her. Hey. Good thing I followed my instincts. Chelsea.

Hope: What happened then? You and Patch at the chapel. You were going to be married.

Ava: Yeah, and I was never so much in love with Patch, as I was at that moment... I smiled at him, and he smiled back. I mouthed the words I love you, and he did the same. Am I telling that right, Patch, or am I saying it wrong?

Patch: No, you're telling it exactly the way it was.

Philip: You think you might be overdoing the Southern-belle accent a little, Morgan?

Morgan: I go there when I'm nervous.

Philip: What do you have to be nervous about?

Morgan: I don't know, you tell me.

Philip: I don't get coy women. Never have, never will.

Morgan: Then you don't get me.

Philip: I guess I'll have to live with that. But you never told me why you're nervous.

Morgan: Because you're out here lurking, and John Black is in there. And don't pretend like you didn't see him, okay? I know you're gunning for him, and that's fine, I don't care. But why do you have to drag my father through the --

Philip: Slow down, and I'm not gunning for anybody, and I'm not dragging anybody.

Morgan: I may be coy sometimes, but that doesn't mean I'm stupid. Remember that.

Philip: Why should I?

Morgan: Because it's a good piece of information to have.

Philip: You're being coy again.

Morgan: I can't help it. Second nature. So, are you --

Philip: I was just about to ask, maybe you'd like to join me for breakfast, and I can prove to you that I'm not after John or your father or anyone else. As long as they're not after me.

Morgan: I'd actually like that, but I'm meeting my father for breakfast, so -- and, actually, here he comes. Hi, Daddy.

Paul: Hey, honey. What's going on?

Morgan: Oh, nothing much. Just saying hi to Philip.

Paul: Uh-huh. Well, now you can say goodbye to him. I'm sure that Mr. Kiriakis is a very busy man.

Philip: I was a lot busier before my family's ships started mysteriously...getting held up in customs.

Paul: Like I told you before, there's no mystery to it. There were irregularities in the manifest that called for an investigation.

Philip: And now, it seems, you're being investigated, at least according to the papers. It's quite a coincidence.

Morgan: This is what I'm talking about, Philip. Why do you have to drag my father through --

Paul: Morgan, I'll handle this. We're not gonna have this conversation right now, okay? I'm here to have breakfast with my daughter. So if you'll excuse us.

Morgan: So, are you coming in?

Philip: Maybe for some coffee.

Paul: Morgan, let's go.

Nicole: You know, I don't mind telling you now that I've always had a little crush on you -- uh, him -- the old John.

John: I thought you said the old John was boring.

Nicole: No, no, no, no. I never said he was boring.

John: That's okay. From what I understand, he was boring as hell.

Nicole: [Chuckles] You really have changed, haven't you? Anyway, the old John, it wasn't that he was boring, he was just kind of --

John: Narrow-minded, self-righteous stick in the mud.

Nicole: I was gonna say conservative.

John: [Chuckles]

Nicole: But, at the same time, he was...very sexy. You know, actually, he looked exactly like you -- or, you look exactly like him -- same handsome face, same sexy bod. Come to think of it. You're in much better shape. Have you been working out?

Steve: Sweetness, I'm sorry you have to hear this.

Ava: Come on. Patch, don't you think it's time that she did?

Steve: Come on, Ava. Is this really necessary? What happened in the past is over and done with.

Ava: No, it is hardly over and done with. It has not been for me since that day. And, besides, Bo and Hope have asked, and I think they have a right to know about their friend that they think is so damn wonderful.

Hope: I'd like to hear the rest. Please, Ava, go on.

Ava: I'd be happy to tell you, because then maybe you can see Patch for the lying, heartless bastard that he really is. Oh, God, you know, I have a much better idea. Patch, why don't you tell them, because you are so much better at telling stories?

Steve: I think you're doing a good job. I don't need to say --

Ava: I think you should just tell them. You tell your good friends and your precious little wife what happened next. You tell them what you did to me on our wedding day.

Kate: What's wrong with her? What do you think happened?

Daniel: I don't know. She's passed out, and she's running a pretty high fever. I can't bring her around. Why don't you call 911? Chelsea. Chelsea.

Kate: Hello, yes. I need an ambulance. 13201 Glen Oaks. My granddaughter has collapsed. Please, just hurry.

Nicole: Lonely in that big old house all by yourself.

John: I actually have lots of company at the moment.

Nicole: Hmm. Really? Who?

John: My staff, including my manservant, Rolf -- rarely leaves my side.

Nicole: Rolf. Isn't he that creepy doctor of Stefano's?

John: Not anymore. He's my butler.

Nicole: [Chuckles] I bet he's still creepy.

John: We're working on that, but it's been a little slow.

Nicole: You poor man. I can't imagine what you going through -- no family, no good friends to call your own, no memory of your former life. You must feel kind of...cast adrift.

John: Yes. It's a nice feeling.

Nicole: You know what? Darn it, I'm just gonna be real forward here, for once, and ask you out on a date. I would love to have dinner with you, John. What do you say? Are you game?

Paul: What's wrong, honey? You're not eating.

Morgan: How am I supposed to eat when I'm forced to sit here and look at him?

Paul: John Black is a good friend of mine, and he's promised to help me out with this misunderstanding down at the customs office.

Morgan: [Scoffs] I bet. Look, Daddy, one man has already underestimated my intelligence today. Are you gonna do the same? I know John Black is responsible for putting you in this mess in the first place.

Kate: Where the hell is that ambulance? It should have been here by now.

Daniel: Kate, you just called. They'll be here.

Kate: She should never have had that operation. It was too risky. It was just crazy.

Daniel: Try not to get too wound up, all right? Be calm.

Kate: I am calm. My granddaughter is passed out there, and she's not waking up.

Daniel: Well, she's strong. She made it this far.

Kate: She better make it all the way because if she doesn't, I'm holding you responsible. That's right. You should never have talked her into that surgery.

Steve: Okay. You want me to finish the story? I'll finish it.

Ava: Don't you sugarcoat it. You tell them exactly what happened.

Steve: I will. In fact, I want to. I was standing at the altar... watching you... as you started toward me down the aisle. You looked so beautiful, so happy, and I wondered why I didn't feel the same way. I thought this should be the happiest day of my life, too, so why wasn't it? This...really strange feeling came over me, a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. I started having these crazy flashes in my head -- someone else's wedding... another bride. I tried to get a grip. I couldn't. I just knew there was something wrong about all this. I didn't know what it was. I just knew in my gut...in my heart... I couldn't go through with it.

Morgan: Well, isn't that the truth? I mean, isn't that the reason you're in this mess? He made you take that bribe.

Paul: Honey, nobody made me do anything.

Morgan: You're a good man, Daddy. I know you wouldn't have done something like this if he didn't twist your arm. I mean, just look at him over there with a girl half his age. You can just tell the guy's a jerk. He doesn't give a damn about what anybody else or anything but himself.

Paul: Listen to you. You talk like that in front of your mom.

Morgan: No, only because I don't want to make her feel worse that she already does.

Paul: Well, don't worry about your mother. She's as tough as they come.

Morgan: Yeah, what about you? You might be going to jail.

Paul: Morgan, we already talked about this. That's not gonna happen. This is all gonna get taken care of, and everything's gonna go back to normal, all right?

Morgan: Is that what he said?

Paul: No. That's what I'm saying to you. And when's the last time I let my little girl down? All right, I got to go.

Paul: Already?

Morgan: Yeah, I promised Jill that I'd meet her.

Paul: Listen... don't worry about this, okay? I meant what I said. Everything's gonna be fine.

Morgan: Okay. I love you, Daddy.

Paul: Oh, I love you, too.

Morgan: See you later.

[Door closes]

John: Look, you seem like a really nice lady.

Nicole: Oh, I'm not that nice.

John: Well, as interesting as that is --

Nicole: Look, John, it's just dinner. I'm not asking you to marry me. Come on, Johnny. I promise I won't bite, unless, of course, you're into that kind of thing.

John: Well, that might be fun.

Nicole: Oh, yeah. I think it'll be the most fun either one of us have had in a very long time.

Philip: Well, well, well. What have we here? Sleeping with the enemy, John?

Nicole: We're not sleeping together. We're just having a friendly chat.

Philip: It's a figure of speech, Nicole.

John: Do you have a problem with our being friends?

Philip: Oh, no. No problem at all. In fact, I'd say the two of you deserve each other.

Daniel: Chelsea volunteered to donate part of her pancreas to her father. It's something she wanted to do, and I made sure she understood all the risks. Now, if you recall, I wasn't too happy about doing the surgery in the first place.

Kate: Sorry. I guess I was just looking for someone to blame.

Daniel: Well, I understand. Let's not jump to the worst-case scenario here. We're not sure what's happened yet, but once we get her to the hospital and run some tests.

Kate: If victor was home, he'd get the ambulance here.

Daniel: I will call the hospital, okay?

[Doorbell rings]

Kate: Oh! Thank God. Maybe that's them.

Daniel: All right, you hang in there, girl. You're gonna be okay. I'll make sure of it.

Kate: So, then she collapsed. Her doctor's here. He hasn't been able to revive her.

Daniel: Dr. Jonas. Patient's recovering from a high-risk pancreas-transplant surgery. She's running a temperature. Her breathing is shallow. I want her stabilized and taken to University ASAP.

EMT: Yes, Doctor.

Steve: If it's too painful for you, I'll stop.

Ava: [Sniffles] Oh, no. I haven't heard this part of the story yet. At least not from your point of view, so please, by all means, be my guest.

Steve: So like I said, I was having these things, these flashes in my head and this weird thing was happening inside of me, and it was freaking me out. And then, without even thinking about it, I took a step back. Then another. Another. Next thing I knew, I was out the side door. I-I-I was just standing there with my heart pounding in my ears. Everything was spinning like I was drunk. Those crazy images started up again -- that other wedding, another bride. I couldn't stop them. Finally, I knew what I had to do. I had to get back in there and tell you I couldn't go through with it. I couldn't marry you. Then out of nowhere, these two guys came up and grabbed me and dragged me off, and threw me in the back of my own car.

Ava: You really expect me to believe that.

Steve: It's the truth.

Ava: [Scoffs]

EMT #1: Her temperature's through the roof -- 103.4.

EMT #2: Pulse is rapid and weak.

Kate: Is that why she passed out?

Daniel: I'm sure of it.

Kate: Why is she having these symptoms?

Daniel: Wait till we get to the hospital. I'll start to do some tests, and I'll be able to tell you more.

Morgan: Oh, my God. What's going on? What's happened to Chelsea?

Nicole: Well...thank you for the pancakes and the company. This is the best meal I've had since I've been back in Salem.

John: Well, thank you for joining me, Mrs. Kiriakis.

Nicole: Nicole, please.

John: Nicole.

Nicole: Well, I very much look forward to our dinner and getting to know the new and, may I say, vastly improved you.

John: Well, I hope I don't disappoint.

Nicole: Same here. However, I can't imagine t possible.

John: Well then. Tonight. My place.

Nicole: Can't wait.

Ava: Don't you think I deserve better? What, you think I'm that stupid?

Steve: No. I'm not lying, Ava. I never meant to hurt you.

Ava: [Laughs] Hurt me? Hurt me? You were the man that I was going to marry. I loved you. [Voice breaking] And I thought that you loved me. My God, do you have any idea what it felt like when I realized that you weren't coming back? It was like -- it was like this part of me... it just died right then and there.

Steve: I'm sorry. I got to tell you. There's more to it if you'd let me explain.

Ava: Why? Why, Patch, so you can tell me more ridiculous lies?

Bo: Why don't you let him finish?

Hope: Yeah. I'd like to hear the rest.

Kayla: So would I.

Ava: Fine. Go ahead, Patch. You tell your little story, because I cannot wait to hear how it ends.

Steve: You already know how it ends. All I could do now is tell a little bit about the time before I met you. Maybe then it will make more sense. I don't know. Maybe not.

Ava: Get on with it.

Steve: Before we met, I had been abducted and held prisoner by a man named Stefano DiMera. He wanted to inflict as much pain on me and the people I loved... as he could. And this is how he did it. This is gonna sound crazy. He faked my death. He made me forget my past.

Ava: You know, Hope over there, she mentioned that to me.

Hope: Go on, Steve.

Steve: So, DiMera had me locked up and under his control for a long time -- years. One day, I managed to escape. I didn't know where to go. I didn't know what to do because by then, I had no memory of who I was or where I came from. I was lost. But then I met you. You changed me. You gave me a life ... and something to live for. And I fell in love with you, and I wanted to marry you. I did. And it killed me that I never got a chance to say goodbye. I swear on my life. I swear on everything we once meant to each other. Now, that is the truth, Ava. I swear. I swear on my life. I swear on everything we once meant to each other.

Philip: So, tell me what happened. Are you gonna see him again?

Nicole: We have a date tonight at his place. I think he kind of likes me.

Philip: Hey, don't go getting distracted. Remember your objective.

Nicole: Oh, I know. Try to get the goods from him.

Philip: Not just try.

Nicole: Okay, I'll do it. I don't see why business and pleasure can't mix.

Philip: They can, as long as John doesn't know that's what's happening.

Nicole: Trust me. He won't suspect a thing.

Philip: Good.

John: I hope you're not following me now. I've told you I would handle everything.

Paul: What are you talking about? I'm here having breakfast with my daughter. I got to say, I couldn't help but notice that, uh, hot little blonde you were sitting with. Now, I know it may be none of my business, but, uh, you are married, right?

John: That's right. It's none of your business. But I'll let you in on a little secret.

Paul: Yeah, what's that?

John: I know what I'm doing.

Paul: I'll bet you do.

Chelsea: Dr. Jonas.

Daniel: I'm right here, Chelsea. Didn't I tell you to take it easy?

Chelsea: You're gonna stay with me, right?

Daniel: Oh, I'm not going anywhere, I promise. I will take very good care of you.

Ava: I'll take the story back from there, since you couldn't possibly know what happened next. I couldn't believe it when you left the church. [Chuckles] I thought you must be playing a game or something, and so I waited and then I realized you weren't coming back. The next thing I knew, I was in an ambulance being taken to a hospital, where I stayed for -- I don't know -- quite some time. And then Daddy took me out of there. He brought me back here, and he locked me in this room. It was for my own good.

Steve: I'm so sorry, Ava.

Ava: [Laughs] That is all you can say to me? That is all you can keep saying to me? You are a cold son of a bitch. You ruined my life. You ruined everything. You took away everything I had, and you turned me into this person that I despise. I hate you! And I hate everything that you have done to me! I hate you! [Sobbing]

On the next "Days of our Lives"

Kate: I think you need to start talking now.

Sami: Until you drop Nicole, you're not going to the park or anywhere with your son.

Ava: You all miss your pop so much, huh? Why don't I just arrange a little reunion, huh? I want them dead.
