Max: Here goes. [Ringing] It's ringing.

Girl: Dad? It's so early for you to call.

Max: What do I say?

Stephanie: You're asking me? I don't know.

Max: [Clears throat] Hello?

Girl: Who are you?

Nicole: Ow.

E.J.: [Laughs]

Nicole: You make me feel so beautiful.

Sami: No, E.J., stop it! E.J., put her down! Put that tramp down!

E.J.: Did you invite her?

Nicole: No, she just shows up whenever she's not wanted. Go away, Sami. E.J. is my husband now.

Sami: Oh, come on. You just seduced him while he was trapped in an elevator.

Nicole: What? It was a mutual decision. We made love -- real love.

Sami: You don't even know the meaning of the word.

Nicole: Well, I do now. The ring is on my finger now, Sami, and it is staying there.

Sami: No. E.J. is mine.

E.J.: No, I'm not, Samantha. And thank you for turning me down, 'cause if you hadn't, I wouldn't have met the love of my life.

Nicole: My prince charming.

Sami: No. No! E.J., you don't understand. E.J., please! E.J.! E.J.! Aah! E.J.! [Crying] E.J.

Sami: Daddy. Hey, I hate to bother you.

Roman: Since when?

Sami: I know, I know. Hey, I'm at the Salem Inn with the twins. It's been affected by the blackout, too.

Roman: Well, I don't doubt it. I mean, I think everybody in the county was cranking up their air conditioners to beat the heat wave, and the system couldn't take it. The whole grid went down. But the good news is it's a holiday. Normal working day, there'd be a lot more people away from home stuck in office buildings.

Sami: So how much longer do you think that it's gonna be out?

Roman: Well, I don't know. City engineers -- you know, they're working on it, doing the best they can.

Sami: I hope they fix it soon, 'cause the twins get so cranky went it's hot out.

Roman: Just the twins?

Sami: [Chuckles] Okay, okay, I'll admit that I was looking forward to having a nice air-conditioned room here at the Salem Inn, but, obviously, they're having problems, too. You know there are people stuck in the elevators here?

Roman: Well, I'll tell you what -- why don't you come to the pub? Smartest thing we did was go green. I mean, this place is running on batteries. In fact, ma has offered to set it up as a temporary shelter.

Sami: That's great.

Roman: Okay, so either get down here or go to your Uncle Bo's. Now that he's gone green, he'll have power, too.

Sami: You know, I think I will if it goes on much longer, but I want to get the twins down as soon as possible.

Roman: Okay, I got to go, but you be careful. People get crazy in blackouts.

Sami: Don't worry, Dad. Nothing strange is going on here.

Roman: All right, honey. I'll talk to you later.

Sami: Thanks, Dad. I will. Oh, uh, hey, excuse me. How much longer do you think those people are gonna be stuck in the elevators?

Man: They'll have them out soon.

Sami: Yeah. God, I'm glad it's not me. I'd be freaking out. Voicemail. Damn it. Lucas, where are you?

Lucas: Damn, Chloe, you are incredible.

Chloe: Why did you stop?

Lucas: I just -- to, uh -- just to catch my breath, that's all. I never thought being trapped in an elevator could feel so good. I don't want to ever get out of here.

Chloe: Do you mean that?

Lucas: Yeah, I do.

Chloe: I know you're here because you're mad at Sami.

Lucas: I'm not mad at Sami. I'm through with Sami.

Chloe: How many times have you said that before?

Lucas: A couple times. Maybe more, but I'm not gonna say it again. Never again.

Chloe: You're sure?

Lucas: I have never been so sure of anything in my whole life. I should have known. I should have known when I got home from prison and I saw them in bed together that it was over.

Chloe: Why didn't you know?

Lucas: Because she convinced me to give her another chance, that's why.

Chloe: And you did.

Lucas: I had to, Chloe. I had no choice. We have a family together. We have kids. I have to be there. I have to be there for Allie, Will, and, uh...especially Johnny.

Chloe: Lucas, you got to stop doing this to yourself.

Lucas: I don't want to do it to myself anymore. I'm through. I don't want to talk about it anymore.

Chloe: Then don't.

Max: Who is this?

Stephanie: Talk.

Max: I'm sorry, Miss. Can you tell me who you are?

Girl: You're the one who called me, and what I want to know is why you have my father's phone.

Max: Uh, that's a good question. I -- hello? Hello? She hung up.

Stephanie: Do you think that was your sister?

Max: Yeah, maybe.

Stephanie: This is so amazing. It has to be your sister. Do you think it's the same girl in the photo? I mean, who knows? You might have other siblings.

Max: Why? Do you really think that's a possibility?

Stephanie: Of course. We don't know how many times Trent has been married before or how many kids he has.

Max: I really wish you hadn't have said that.

Stephanie: Oh, my God. I'm so sorry. Forget I did.

Max: No, I can't 'cause now it's in my head.

Stephanie: Well, you said it was just that one photo, right?

Max: Yeah, but, I mean, there could have been more hidden somewhere.

Stephanie: Yeah, but think about it -- if there had been more photos, you would have found them right when you found that one.

Max: Yeah, you're probably right, yeah.

Stephanie: I'm sorry for bringing up that possibility.

Max: I could have a brother, too. No, look, hey, look, it's not your fault, okay? I-I need to consider all the possibilities here, all right?

Stephanie: Well, actually, you know what? Just -- I think you should just focus on finding this girl and then go on from there.

Max: Wait a minute.

Stephanie: What are you doing?

Max: Well, I'm checking Trent's other recent calls in his contact list.

Stephanie: Okay. Finding anything?

Max: I mean, they all seem to be local, but all the contacts are numbers with initials. There's no full names.

Stephanie: Who does that?

Max: Somebody who's keeping secrets.

Roman: Hey, Stephanie.

Stephanie: Hi, Uncle Roman.

Roman: Baby brother.

Max: What's up?

Roman: I need your help.

E.J.: Ooh, disaster. We're out of champagne.

Nicole: I didn't want more anyway.

E.J.: Well, we're stuck in an elevator in the middle of a heat wave. The last thing we want is to die of thirst. Are you okay? You're very quiet. I think we both know that's not like you. Did I say something to upset you?

Nicole: No. You're perfect. This is perfect -- you and me, what happened.

E.J.: It was very special.

Nicole: Since we've kind of been fighting and...I didn't realize that, um... oh, you know [Chuckles] Never mind.

E.J.: Nicole, why is it you act so surprised whenever a man shows you the slightest bit of tenderness?

Nicole: 'Cause I'm not exactly used to it.

E.J.: Well, you should be. You certainly deserve to be.

Nicole: You know, um, I don't really want to read in too much to what happened here. I -- what I do want to say is... you've reminded me how special making love is. Thank you.

E.J.: No. I think I should certainly be thanking you.

Sami: Damn it. Allie, your daddy just won't call me back. What in the world is he up to?

Sami: Great. Lucas, where are you? What the hell? Oh, my God.

Lucas: Hey. How are the twins?

Sami: They're good.

Lucas: Good.

Sami: What's wrong?

Lucas: Nothing.

Sami: Lucas, you're pacing.

Lucas: I didn't realize I was.

Sami: You know, I meant what I said. You can trust me. You know, you can tell me anything. I'll -- I'll prove to you that you can trust me.

Lucas: You're serious, right?

Sami: Anything.

Lucas: Well, I don't have any secrets I'd like to divulge right now. I'm sorry.

Sami: Must be hard for you -- trapped here, stuck here under house arrest, not able to do anything, go anywhere.

Lucas: Yeah. So?

Sami: I don't know. I just --

Lucas: What? What are you getting at? Do you have something to ask me? Just ask me.

Sami: No, but --

Lucas: But what? But nothing. Got it?

Roman: Well, if there was ever a persuasive argument for going green, this would have to be it.

Max: I have a hard time realizing that the pub has gone completely independent from the city's power supply.

Roman: All I can say is thank God it is, like Chez Rouge and half the backup systems at the hospital.

Stephanie: Yeah, but how long until the solar batteries run out?

Max: Well, from what ma and Nick and Bo told me, as long as there's sunlight -- I mean, they stay charged and operative so much so that they got to sell the excess power back to the city.

Roman: Yeah. Unfortunately, that doesn't help us much today.

Max: Yeah. All right, so, is there anything you need? What's up?

Roman: Yeah, yeah. Aside from getting this place up and ready to be a shelter area, we need to get the word out so we can help as many people as possible, in particular the elderly and kids.

Stephanie: Well, I know a lot of frat guys and sorority girls who are still in town canvassing the neighborhoods, making sure that the residents are okay, especially the elderly.

Roman: Okay, good. And we are announcing shelter areas with electricity and air-conditioning on the emergency radio and citizen band frequencies.

Max: Man, you don't realize how many people this affects until it actually happens.

Stephanie: This could potentially be pretty dangerous, huh?

Roman: Oh, you bet. Yep. Heat stroke, dehydration, heart attacks. The mortality rate can be surprisingly high.

Stephanie: Well, then, let's hope that they get the power back and running soon.

Roman: And that people don't get crazy with the A.C. once it does get running.

Max: Well, let's hope this heat breaks, huh?

Roman: Let's hope so.

Max: Yeah. All right, well, we have enough water and ice. I mean, I'll keep the pub open as long as I have to -- all night, you know?

Roman: I think you better count on it.

Max: All right.

Roman: Any trouble, you call me direct.

Max: What kind of trouble are you expecting here?

Roman: Heat and fear can make people crazy. Just be aware of that.

Max: All right.

Roman: Okay, any questions?

Max: No. No, I think we got it. It's just a lot to do.

Stephanie: Let's get started.

Roman: Okay. Well, thank you both. Now, I got to coordinate disaster relief down at the station, but, again, you need me, you call me.

Max: Will do.

Roman: Okay.

Max: Keep cool.

Roman: [Chuckles] That is the idea, isn't it?

Stephanie: Bye, Uncle Roman.

Max: Well, first things first -- let's get all these chairs down.

Stephanie: Okay. Hey, um...about earlier, I'm sorry for bringing up the possibility that you might have other siblings.

Max: No, don't worry about it, 'cause it definitely is a possibility.

Stephanie: Yeah, but it's not very likely.

Max: Well, there's no certain evidence, but if I find this girl, I'm hoping she'll fill me in on some of those other secrets that dear old dad might have.

Stephanie: Come on. You have to at least be excited that you might have a sister.

Max: I suppose.

Stephanie: You suppose?

Max: All right, fine. But I'm worried, too, because she's gonna go back to that son-of-a-bitch father of mine and tell him that someone else has his phone.

Stephanie: I don't think that's a big deal. We just have to make sure we get him his phone back before he realizes that nick took it. You have her number?

Max: Yeah. I'm gonna trace it and find out where she lives.

Stephanie: She's so pretty. I wonder what she's like.

Max: Well, I'm not really thinking about that right now. I don't even know if she's actually my sister.

Stephanie: She answered the phone expecting to talk to "dad." Who else could it be?

Max: I don't know.

Stephanie: All right, what's wrong?

Max: Nothing.

Stephanie: Hey, stop it. I know you. You're out of it.

Max: Well, it's hard to absorb. I mean, my birth father comes out of nowhere, and then I might have a sister?

Stephanie: That's a good thing.

Max: No, not necessarily.

Stephanie: It is. Look, I understand how you're feeling. You heard her voice earlier and you didn't know what to say, so just let it sink in, okay? Max, you might have a sister.

E.J.: Ooh. Whoa! Hey! I got you. The cables aren't supposed to drop like that. [Baby crying]

Sami: I know, sweetie. I know.

E.J.: You two all right?

Nicole: Uh, yeah. Can you get that light out of my eyes, please?

Sami: E.J.? E.J., are you --

Nicole: Terrific.

E.J.: Hello, Samantha.

Sami: Oh, my God. In an elevator?

Stephanie: Is it true? Are you Max's father?

Trent: Yes. I would like you both to leave now. I-I need a little time.

Max: To what? Lick your wounds? Are you feeling sorry for yourself? Are you gonna play the victim here, Dean Robbins?

Trent: I'm not playing anything. I need to process this information.

Max: Yeah, well, I'm gonna need to do some processing of my own, and like it or not, I'm gonna need you to help me with that.

Trent: I -- there's not much that I can tell you. But I did come to see you...when you were still very little... here in Salem.

Max: Go on.

Trent: And I learned that... Frankie Donner had taken you under his wing, that you'd been adopted by the Brady's, and, uh...so I found out where they lived, where they went to church.

Max: So you watched me. You snuck around. You hid in the shadows.

Trent: Something like that.

Max: And then you left for a second time, because even though you were curious...you still didn't give a damn about me, did you?

Trent: You have no idea what you're ta--

Max: You don't get to say anything like that to me. I'm the one that was abandoned.

Trent: I knew you were well taken care of.

Max: So that makes it right? You could feel good about yourself because I was well taken care of?

Trent: Look, you're angry. That's very understandable.

Max: Well, you know, I'm so glad that you understand.

Stephanie: Calm down.

Max: No, this bastard didn't give a damn then, and he doesn't give a damn now.

Trent: You've had a good life, right? You were surrounded by people who loved you and nourished you.

Max: Yeah, I've had a great life. So what? That still does not change the fact that I have the blood of a coward running through me.

Stephanie: Max.

Max: No, you wanted to know, remember? So now you're gonna know everything -- the good, the bad, everything. And you -- you are gonna start talking now. I want to know why you left me. I want to know why you didn't give a damn about your own son.

Trent: I don't have to justify myself to you.

Max: The hell you don't.

Max: You're offering me money to stay quiet?

Trent: Name your price.

Max: You think I can be bought?

Trent: $10,000.

Stephanie: Oh, that's it. I can't -- I can't stand here and listen to you bribe your own son. It is making me sick.

Trent: No, I am asking my son to consider keeping quiet about this. And I am willing to help him financially to motivate him to protect us both.

Stephanie: My God, he is your son. And all you want to do is keep his mouth shut so that people don't know he exists?

Trent: Why would either of us want this to be made public?

Stephanie: Because Max is not only incredibly gifted, but he is an amazing and decent human being, and any man would be proud to have him as a son.

Trent: Really? A bartender who dabbles in physics?

Stephanie: Shut up, okay? You don't even know him. Max is brilliant.

Max: You know what? Forget it, Stephanie, okay? I don't care if I'm brilliant, and I don't care if the fact is that you are my father, because I don't want to be anything like you. My real father was Shawn Brady. He was a man of substance and character and lived a simple but noble life helping people, making the world a better place because of his kindness and generosity.

Trent: Okay, I understand why you would want to disassociate yourself from me. In that case, why don't you reconsider my offer and keep quiet about this?

Max: You -- you -- you -- you don't listen very well, do you?

Trent: Max, there's a lot at stake here for both of us.

Stephanie: Don't do it. You can't take his money.

Max: I know I can't. But maybe we can work a little something out.

Stephanie: Max, no.

Trent: Yeah, tell me.

Max: I want to know who the girl in the picture is. And if you tell me that, then I'll think about your offer.

Stephanie: We have lots of cold water for anyone who's dehydrated.

Max: Mm-hmm.

Stephanie: We should probably get some clean dish towels to make some cold compresses just in case anyone's overheated.

Max: You know what? Damn that man.

Stephanie: Speaking of overheated...

Max: No, you were in my father's hotel room, too. Let's ignore the fact that he tried to buy my silence for a moment. You know what really gets me? That little story of his of when he said he came back to Salem when I was a kid? He said he turned around and walked away when he saw I was doing "okay" with the Brady's.

Stephanie: That's not so hard to understand.

Max: Are you kidding me? That man deserted me twice.

Stephanie: Look, I'm not trying to defend your dad, but maybe once he saw how loving and caring the Brady's were, he decided the best thing to do was to leave you be.

Max: If that's true, then he'd have to have a heart, and I don't believe that for a second. I need answers from the good Dean Robbins about this girl who might be my sister.

Sami: Ugh.

E.J.: Great. Samantha, what are you doing here? What are the twins doing here?

Sami: Oh, don't you dare. You're the one who just did it in an elevator. How disgusting is that?

Nicole: Okay, now listen here --

Sami: Oh, you stay out of it. I mean, seriously, what kind of hypocrite are you? You go on and on about how you have feelings for me and then one tiny little blackout and you turn around and you do Nicole in an elevator no less?

E.J.: Samantha, none of this would have happened if you hadn't forced my hand.

Sami: Excuse me? This isn't...my fault.

E.J.: Really? Did you or did you not tell me that we were through? Hmm? You told me that this great love of yours for Lucas had won the day. I mean, there is no us, Samantha. You told me to move on, and I have.

Sami: Good. Good. And I'm happy for both of you, really. I'm thrilled. And I am so happy that I have a real love with Lucas. 'Cause I can tell you one thing for sure -- he would never be caught dead doing some tramp in an elevator.

Chloe: Oh, my God. Oh, wow. That was amazing.

Lucas: It better be amazing. I've been in prison.

Chloe: [Laughs] Wow, I feel so guilty.

Lucas: You feel guilty? We just made love. Why do you feel guilty?

Chloe: Uh, no, no. That part was great. I wanted to make love to you.

Lucas: Good, 'cause I wanted to make love to you...really bad.

Chloe: It's just -- are you sure that you don't feel like you've betrayed Sami somehow?

Lucas: No. No, I don't. She betrayed me when she slept with E.J. That's it, end of story.

Chloe: Is it?

Lucas: Yeah, it is. I'm here because I wanted to see you. That's why I got rid of my ankle monitor. Life's all about making choices and taking risks.

Chloe: Well, sometimes you lose. I mean, look at us, Lucas. We're trapped in here, and the policeman who arrested you is downstairs.

Lucas: I'm not worried about that. As soon as those elevator doors open, I'll just sneak right past him. He'll never even know I was here.

Stephanie: I'm not trying to defend your dad, but you have to admit, you don't know the whole story. Maybe until you do, you shouldn't give in to so much hatred.

Max: I'm sorry, but I have good reason to. How could he throw me away like that twice? Thank God I was taken in by the greatest family on earth, but Robbins had nothing to do with that.

Stephanie: Max, I know it hurts.

Max: No, you don't know the half of it. Though God knows I am so glad that I wasn't raised as his son. I wasn't a baby when he gave up on me, you know. I still remember some of the things about my mother when she was alive. I remember her crying. It's a little fuzzy, but I remember enough of the tears and the sadness and her hatred. She hated him for good reason. And then she died. And I was alone, and he could have taken me in. He could have taken me back, but he didn't. He threw me back into the system and he walked away. Now, how could he do that to me?

Stephanie: You don't know why and that's my point.

Max: He is a well-educated man who makes a good living. How dare he give up on his own son. He's a user, and he abandoned me. And he abandoned me because he was too selfish to take care of me.

Stephanie: I'm sorry.

Max: All the memories that I have of living with my mother were about being scared for her. And then they were both gone. Do you know how many nights I laid awake wondering where he was, wondering what I had done wrong for him to leave me, wondering if I was being punished for being bad?

Stephanie: I'm sorry.

Max: Oh, no. It gets worse. Even after the Brady's had rescued me, I obsessed about my real family for years, wondering if there were other long-lost brothers and sisters out there, wondering if he had kept them and not me.

Stephanie: Look, I know Trent hurt you, and it was wrong, but focus on the fact that you were adopted into an amazing family. You're way better off without your dad.

Max: And I'm not arguing with you about that. But don't you see that this phone call has brought up all these old feelings to the surface? This girl...

Stephanie: Your sister.

Max: I don't want to get all excited about finding her. I mean, you heard her. You heard how fond she is of her father, which doesn't make any sense. How can she still love the same man who used me and who threw my mother and me away? It doesn't make any sense to me. Unless it was because of me.

Sami: And another thing, you two-timing jerk, don't you --

E.J.: Please, Samantha, all right? If you expect me to apologize, you're gonna be disappointed. And don't blame this on Nicole. This is not her fault.

Sami: Nicole is only chasing after you to get even with me. She's been chasing after you from day one just to make me suffer. I mean, that's her life's mission.

Nicole: Okay, you know, you think everything is about you. Just wait. Wait, please.

E.J.: Okay.

Nicole: All right, fine, Sami. You know what? E.J. and I had sex, and it was great, but I have to admit, if I'm gonna be honest with myself, this never would have happened if you weren't so stupid. I don't know what you said to him earlier, but you blew it.

Sami: Good. I don't want him. I want Lucas.

Chloe: [Sighs] Lucas, what if you do get caught?

Lucas: Calm down. Relax. Hold this for me.

Chloe: How can I relax? I mean, sneaking through the lobby isn't a great idea. It's probably crawling with cops by now.

Lucas: You know what, Chloe? That could work to my advantage. The more confusion, the better. I'll just sneak through the lobby.

Chloe: I don't know.

Lucas: Listen to me -- if there's one thing I learned in prison, it's how to blend in, become invisible. I can do this, all right? If you don't do that in prison, you end up with a shank in your back. I know what I'm doing. Relax. They'll never know I was here.

Officer: Hello? Anyone in there? If you can hear me, we've got the emergency intercom working, but that's it. Then we have to manually lower and open each elevator one at a time to get you out of there.

Lucas: Oh, no. Damn it. No, no.

Officer: Camera surveillance is down, and we need to know how many of you are in there and if anybody's hurt. Use the button on the wall panel to talk back to me.

Chloe: Oh, God. Time to start blending.

Lucas: Well, that didn't work. In the movies, they sneak out the trap door of the elevator all the time.

Chloe: Didn't you see that guy stuck in an elevator on YouTube? Those things are always locked in real life.

Lucas: Well, thanks for the info now. What are we supposed to do?

Chloe: You know what? I have an idea.

Lucas: Good, because I don't. I'm all out.

Chloe: Okay, I'm gonna pretend to panic like crazy when these doors open. I'm gonna scream and cause a huge commotion. You just get the hell out of here.

Lucas: That sounds good. That will work. That's a good idea. Thank you.

Chloe: Oh, please, I'm the one who got you into this mess. I really have to try to make it up to you.

Lucas: I think you already did that, Chloe.

Chloe: Whoa. Okay, we're moving. Oh, my God. Okay, you know the thing I said about pretending to panic?

Lucas: Right. Yeah.

Chloe: I won't have to pretend.

Lucas: Relax. Don't freak out.

Stephanie: I hate seeing someone I love in so much pain.

Max: I'll try to keep it to myself.

Stephanie: No. Ugh, that's not what I meant. I can't begin to understand what you've been through or what you're going through now. But I do know what it's like to be a child dealing with loss. I mean, I was really young when I lost my papa. I don't remember what happened, but...as I grew older, I saw what it did to my mom. She lived with this huge hole in her heart, and so did I. And there's this constant feeling of something missing, but you don't know what it is.

Max: I know that feeling.

Stephanie: I just wish I could give you better advice. Have you talked to Bo about how you're feeling? I'm sure he can relate. Biologically, he's not a Brady, either.

Max: No, but it's different. He was raised as one.

Stephanie: So were you.

Max: He didn't find out he was a Kiriakis until much later in life. He didn't have to go through life wondering what might have been.

Stephanie: You think he didn't go half-crazy when he found out that Victor was his biological father? I just -- I think you should talk to him. It couldn't hurt. Both of you are dealing with big emotional things and similar situations.

Max: Steph, I've tried to live my life feeling like I was a real Brady, and then this snake comes back into my life and he mixes things up again. I feel like I'm starting back at square one.

Lucas: This is a disaster.

Chloe: Shh! Be quiet, okay? [Breathing heavily] Hello? Are you still there? I'm not hurt, but it's really hot in here and I'm claustrophobic.

Officer: We'll have you out of there in no time, Miss.

Chloe: Please, thank you. Hurry, please!

Lucas: Don't say hurry.

Chloe: Well, what am I supposed to do, say, slow down my rescue until I figure out how to hide a convict"?

Lucas: All right, I'm sorry. I just don't know what to do right now.

Chloe: Well, Lucas, you're stuck. There's no way out.

Lucas: Never give up. That's my motto.

Stephanie: Everything happens for a reason. Look at your dad's reappearance as an opportunity to get the answers to all of the questions that you have. And maybe you'll get hurt, but it'll be worth it to find out the truth.

Max: You're right. And -- and Trent can't know that I'm investigating. Because then he'll try and stop me, or at least he'll try and distort the truth and I want that. I want the whole truth.

Stephanie: Now we're talking.

Max: And you're right again. I might have a sister. And I'm not gonna stop until I find her and get to know her. I mean, maybe we're alike. Maybe we're not. Maybe she doesn't want a new brother in her life. I don't care. I'm still gonna find her. If I get hurt...so what? I got you to make me feel better.

Stephanie: [Chuckles] Of course.

Max: You're really something. You know that? How did you get to be so wise?

Stephanie: Don't I wish.

Max: There's only one problem.

Stephanie: What?

Max: What do I do now?

Stephanie: Well, you're the genius. But I do have one suggestion.

Max: Hmm?

Stephanie: Just call her.

E.J.: Samantha, can I have a word, please?

Sami: Not right now. I have to go find -- I have to go home. I'm gonna talk to Lucas. Excuse me. Excuse me. Sorry. Sorry.

Roman: Hey.

Sami: Daddy, hi. What are you doing here?

Roman: Well, dispatch said people were still stuck in elevators. I thought I'd come over and see what I could do. What the hell happened to those two?

Sami: Oh, you know, nothing I want to repeat in front of children.

E.J.: You were quite something back there with Samantha.

Nicole: I hope that's a good thing.

E.J.: Yes. Yes. That is a good thing. Wasn't necessary, but it was very nice of you to go in to bat for me. Look, I think, um, we both know perfectly well that what happened in the elevator could have happened a long time ago. I'm -- I'm really glad that we waited.

Nicole: Me too.

E.J.: Yeah? I think some things are worth waiting for. And every time I go in an elevator, I will think of you.

Nicole: [Chuckles] And I will think of you, too.

Officer: Car number two's coming down.

Lucas: All right, this is it. I'll head straight out the lobby.

Chloe: Oh, good luck. Oh, it's too bad that you can't stay and watch my performance. I'm gonna do my famous impersonation of Kathleen battle having a meltdown at the met.

Lucas: Oh, yeah? Who is that?

Chloe: Oh, never mind.

Lucas: Why, is it good?

Chloe: Oh, yeah. Okay, come on. [Banging] Help me! Please, get me out of here! I can't breathe! Oh, my God! Thank God! Oh, my God, help me! Please, I'm having heart palpitations oh, my God, I'm having a heart attack! I think I'm having a heart attack! Oh, my God! Oh, God, I'm fainting!

Sami: What are you doing here?

Lucas: I'll explain it to you later. I need to get out of here.

Sami: This is crazy.

E.J.: What is he doing here?

Nicole: Lucas?

Officer: Wait, isn't that...

Roman: My former son-in-law. Do your thing.

Officer: Lucas Horton, you're under arrest.

Sami: Oh, my God.

Roman: Why is the concept of house arrest so hard for you to understand?

Max: You're right. I should just call her back and get it over with.

Stephanie: Yeah.

Max: But not yet. 'Cause I want to find a more indirect way.

Stephanie: Why?

Max: Well, because whatever happens is gonna change my life forever, and I want to be prepared for whatever's out there. And there's no more confrontation without information. Doesn't make me crazy, does it?

Stephanie: Not at all. At least you have her number for when we're ready to call and face your sister.

Max: "We"?

Stephanie: Yes, we. This could be one of the most important things that you do, and I'm gonna be with you every step of the way.

Officer: If you can't afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you. Do you understand these rights as I have read them to you?

Lucas: Yeah, yeah.

Sami: Daddy, please don't do this.

Roman: Oh, Sami, come on. Lucas broke every condition of his house arrest. Not only did he leave the DiMera Mansion, he deliberately took off his ankle bracelet. I am impressed, Lucas. How the hell did you manage that without bringing the entire force down on you?

Lucas: Just got lucky, I guess.

Sami: No. No, he has a reasonable explanation for this, Dad. It must have been an emergency, you know, with the blackout and everything, right?

Roman: You know what? It doesn't matter. He took off his monitoring device, left his assigned area. Damn it, Lucas, you know what this gets you? It gets you in prison for the remainder of your sentence. Let's go.

Sami: No. No, you -- Lucas. You can't do this.

Steve: I want you to stay away from him. I want you to promise me.

Stephanie: I'm sorry. I can't do that.

E.J.: I just wanted to talk about what happened last night.

Nicole: What's there to talk about? It was sex -- no big deal.

Max: I think I might have a sister.

Caroline: A sister?

Max: And I'm afraid I'm gonna have to go find her.
