Mayor Marino: Stefano! Open the damn door! [Doorbell rings] [Banging on door] Stefano, it's Marino! Open up!

Man: Mr. Mayor. [Gunshots]

Sami: [Screaming]

E.J.: What was that?

Nicole: Shh.

Sami. No! No, please.

Evan: Stephanie. Stephanie. Hot chocolate, no whipped?

Stephanie: I'm sorry. Evan, my mind is in screensaver mode.

Evan: Are you all right?

Stephanie: I'm fine.

Evan: So, why did you just salt your hot chocolate?

Stephanie: Oh, great.

Evan: No -- no worries. Here. I'll get you a new one.

Stephanie: Thank you.

Evan: No problem. What is it? Guy trouble?

Stephanie: You know Max, right?

Evan: Yeah. Yeah. He seems like a good guy.

Stephanie: He is. He's -- he's a great guy. He always wants to see the best in people. I love that. It's just it can get him in trouble, too. And this time he has to do the right thing.

Melanie: You want to know what everyone else wants to know -- did I kill my Father? And you know what, Max? Maybe I did.

Max: What do you mean, maybe you killed our Father? It's either you did or you didn't, Mel. What?

Hope: Hey.

Max: Hey.

Bo: Everything okay here?

Max: Yeah. Sure. Yeah.

Bo: I don't believe you.

Sami: E.J.! E.J.! Oh, my God! E.J., please! You have to help me! There's a man outside! There's a man outside at the front door, and he tried to shoot me! We have to call 911! We have to call the police!

Nicole: No.

Sami: Give me my phone!

Nicole: What were you doing, watching through the window?

Sami: Give me the phone!

Nicole: I'm not gonna give you the phone!

Sami: E.J., please! You have to help me! There's a guy outside! He killed someone on your doorstep!

Nicole: ...Cockamamie story just so you can barge in here...

Sami: I'm not lying to you!

E.J.: I believe you. It's okay.

Nicole: I cannot believe this.

E.J.: Come here. It's all right.

Sami: Thank you. Thank you very much. So my Dad is already on his way. Someone else called the police.

Nicole: You know, this is low, Sami, even for you.

Sami: Nicole, there is a murderer outside! I saw him! I came face-to-face with him. He pointed a gun at me, and there's a dead body. E.J., there is a dead body on your doorstep!

E.J.: Let's just calm down -- both of you.

Nicole: But all we heard was her theatrical screams, no shots, nothing.

E.J.: We'll find out about that.

Sami: E.J., I came here to talk to you. And I lost my keys, so I couldn't come in. I rang the doorbell, and nobody answered. But I-I knew you must be here 'cause your car was here, and so I came 'round the back. I thought maybe -- so I saw you in the window --

Nicole: So you were watching us.

Sami: Not like that.

Nicole: Oh, you know what? You are sick. I know you're not getting any, Sami, but there is such a thing called pay-per-view.

Sami: Would you shut the hell up, Nicole?

E.J.: I understand.

Nicole: I've had enough!

E.J.: Where do you think you're going?

Nicole: She is a psycho! Not only -- not only does she spy on us, but she comes up with this -- this murder drama to get your attention. But, you know, she really doesn't have a problem with that, does she, E.J.?

E.J.: We don't know if she came up with anything. Look at her. She's genuinely very upset.

Nicole: That's because she knows I'm having your baby and she saw that we were about to make love. You know what? You can fall for her stunts, but I am not going to anymore! [Shrieks] Uhh. Oh. [Screams]

Max: Uh, it's no big deal. Mel was, uh, just a little thrown. She had an incident earlier with Stephanie.

Hope: Hmm.

Max: Yeah.

Hope: It must have been quite the incident.

Max: Yeah, yeah, it was. It was. Yeah. Uh, what -- what are you guys up to? What are you guys doing?

Bo: We came to see Ma.

Max: Oh. Oh, she took the -- the twins to the park. Yeah. Look, we're on our way out, so, uh, we'll -- we'll check you guys later, okay?

Bo: All right. We'll see ya.

Hope: Nice seeing you again.

Max: Yeah. You too.

Melanie: You are a God. And to thank you for that not-so-random act of kindness, I'm gonna get you this video game that you are totally gonna love because it is so cool.

Max: Yeah, you're coming with me, though, and we're gonna go the back way up so we're not disturbed.

Melanie: Not yet, Max. Please, just let me do this for you.

Max: What you can do for me, Mel, is finally give me some answers here, okay? Let's go. Come on.

Bo: Melanie didn't have much to say.

Hope: Yeah, unusual for her, huh?

Bo: They were obviously hiding something.

Hope: But you didn't press. Why?

Bo: Max turned in Robbins' wallet last night. He's had some time to think about it. If he has information on the murder, he would let me know.

Hope: You sure about that?

Bo: Yeah. Yeah. He knows he's got to do the right thing. What's with the look?

Hope: Forgive me for saying this, but ever since Melanie arrived in town, I'm not sure Max knows what the right thing is.

Melanie: Maybe you should lock that.

Max: No one's gonna come up here.

Melanie: Not even your girlfriend? She likes to barge in whenever the hell she feels like it.

Max: Are you gonna start talking? 'Cause if you're not --

Melanie: You'll what? You're gonna tell the whole world I'm a murderer? What are you threatening me with, Max?

Max: I'm not threatening you. I just need to know the truth. I need to know exactly what happened the night of Trent's murder.

Melanie: Fine. If I tell you what I remember, do you promise you won't use it against me?

Max: We're not making any deals here, Mel. Start talking. Fine.

Melanie: What are you doing?

Max: I'm gonna see if Bo and Hope are still downstairs, 'cause I'm sure they'd love to hear about this conversation.

Melanie: Fine. Fine! I'll tell you the truth. [Sighs] I did see our Father that night in the cemetery -- before and... after he died.

Sami: E.J.! E.J.! There's a killer -- E.J.!

E.J.: Hey, are you all right? Are you okay?

Nicole: No, of course, I'm not. Of course I'm not okay. There's a dead guy breathing on me. Well, you know what I mean.

Sami: Now do you believe me? [Sirens wailing]

E.J.: It's Mayor Marino. Who could have done this?

Sami: Daddy!

Roman: All right. Honey. Cordon off this area. All right. Anthony Marino? I'll be damned. Let's go inside.

Sami: Oh, God.

Roman: Sweetheart, are you all right?

Sami: Yeah. I'm okay. I'm okay. But, Dad, there was a guy, and he had a gun. He was gonna shoot me.

Roman: It's okay. It's all right. It's gonna be fine. It's gonna be fine. Okay. Are the twins here?

E.J.: No. They're with Caroline.

Roman: All right. Good.

Sami: Dad, he's still out there. The guy got away. The guy who shot him -- he's gone. You have to find him.

Roman: It's all right. We have people coming to search the area. We'll find something. Any witnesses?

Sami: No. Just me. Just me.

Roman: Nicole, E.J.?

E.J.: No. We were inside.

Roman: Okay. Tell me, how long ago did this happen?

Sami: Um, uh, 15 minutes, maybe.

Roman: Tell me exactly what you saw. Were you coming? Were you going? Start at the top.

Sami: I came here to talk to E.J., and -- and I couldn't find my keys, so I had to ring the bell, and I was knocking. I knew he was here, because his car was here.

Roman: Okay. Any other vehicles in the driveway?

Sami: No. No. So -- so I went around the back of the house because I wanted to see if maybe he was inside somewhere.

Roman: Did you see anything unusual? Did you hear anything?

Sami: No.

Roman: Okay. And then what?

Sami: Well, I decided to leave, so I went back around, and -- and I was going out the front, and -- and that's when I saw him. I saw this dead body right there. And there's this guy, and he was leaning over him, and then he turned to me, Dad, and he had a gun, and he was pointing it at me. He was gonna shoot me. He was gonna kill me, Daddy.

Nicole: The timing's a bit odd, don't you think, Sami?

Sami: What does that mean?

Nicole: You keep -- you keep saying you came here to tell E.J. something. What? What was it, Sami?

Sami: I was here to talk to E.J. about Johnny's schedule, but I don't see what that has to do with anything, given that there is a dead body in the doorway!

Roman: All right, all right. We're gonna take this down to the station, finish it down there. Davis!

Davis: Yes, sir?

Roman: All right. You're in charge. Button down this crime scene. Keep the media away.

Davis: You got it, boss.

E.J.: I'll get my things.

Nicole: I wouldn't be surprised if you killed him.

Sami: What?! Are you serious? I mean, Nicole, come on. Why would I -- why would I kill the Mayor of Salem? I mean, come on! Oh, give me a break, Nicole. That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

Stephanie: Hey. Uh, I-I was looking for Max.

Hope: Oh, hey, honey. He left a little while ago.

Stephanie: Was Melanie with him?

Hope: Yeah, she was.

Stephanie: Did he say where they were going?

Bo: Sorry.

Stephanie: Okay. Thank you.

Bo: Stephanie? Could we, uh, talk with you for a second?

Stephanie: Yeah.

Bo: We heard that you had a little incident with Melanie.

Stephanie: Max told you about that?

Bo: Mm-hmm.

Stephanie: What else did he say?

Bo: Not a heck of a lot. We got the feeling that he was covering for someone.

Hope: I don't suppose you have any idea why he was being so secretive.

Stephanie: Sorry. I wish I could help.

Bo: So do I.

Stephanie: I should get going. I have a lot of homework and errands.

Bo: Stephanie...

Stephanie: We'll talk later, okay?

Hope: Wait. Honey...is there something you want to tell us?

Stephanie: There's not. I don't know anything -- not for sure.

Hope: But you do love Max?

Stephanie: Of course I do, with all my heart. I have to go. [Door opens, closes]

Melanie: I did confront our Dad that night in the cemetery. In -- in fact, I'm the one who had the knife. I was so upset with him, Max -- more than upset. I was crazed. It was like all this anger over everything he has ever done to me just -- just hit me. And my heart started pounding because I made this decision, you see. I was gonna stand up for myself, because I-I just had to get away from him.

Max: Go on. Go on.

Melanie: Okay. Um, then he asked me to go back to his hotel, but I refused, and -- and -- and he lunged after me, and we struggled, and I was still holding the knife, and -- and it's blurry. It's blurry. I don't -- I, um -- we both reached -- we both reached for the knife, and that's all I remember. I don't -- I don't -- I must have blacked out or something. But then when I came back to, my head was throbbing, so I must have hit it...and he had the knife in his back. And, so, I don't know. Maybe I killed him and I just blacked it out. But maybe I didn't, Max. Maybe I didn't do it. No, Max, please. Where are you going?

Max: I-I have to go talk to them.

Melanie: You can't tell Bo and Hope!

Max: No, I have to, all right? My Mother's still a suspect here.

Melanie: I should have known not to trust you. I should have known you would have done this to me -- turn on me -- the one person I count on. It's your fault I'm in this in the first place.

Max: My fault?

Melanie: Yeah. I never would have been in Salem, been at the wrong place at the wrong time, if it wasn't for you.

Max: That is not fair.

Melanie: It is the truth, though, Max. So, tell me, did you travel halfway across the world to find your sister... just to destroy me?

Roman: All right, Sami. Why don't you go in my office, try to relax? I need to talk to these two first.

E.J.: I'll go wait with Samantha if you want to talk --

Roman: That won't be necessary, E.J. I'll start with you. Follow me.

Nicole: [Gasps] Hi. [Chuckles] Uh, would you mind getting me a -- a glass of water, Officer, uh, Lopez? Hey, uh, any relation to Jennifer? You know, J. Lo. [Clicks tongue] I'll take that as a no. [Exhales deeply]

Sami: Grandma, I was really hoping you'd pick up. It's Sami. Um, listen, I need to know if you can watch the twins for a couple more hours tonight. Uh, something happened, and I'll tell you the whole story later. Everything's okay. I'm okay. But I really need your help, if you could keep the twins. Just call me back as soon as you can and let me know, okay? Thanks. Bye. [Cellphone rings] Oh. That was fast. Hello?

Secretary: Hello. Is this Sami Brady?

Sami: Yeah. Who's this?

Secretary: I'm calling from the Brookville Clinic. You left today without making your next appointment.

Sami: Yeah, right, 'cause I'm gonna have to check my calendar. Um, is Dr. Sanders there every day?

Secretary: Mm-hmm. Monday through Friday. Why don't you give me a call later when you check you book?

Sami: Yes. I'll do that. Thank you very much.

Nicole: Dr. Sanders, huh? That sounded awfully important. What do you need to talk to him about?

Nicole: So, who's this mysterious Dr. Sanders? You finally getting that nose job?

Sami: Ha ha. It's Allie and Johnny's pediatrician, actually. I, uh, have to make an appointment for my children.

Nicole: Pediatrician, huh? I'm surprised you weren't calling a shrink, I mean, after the trauma you witnessed -- cold-blooded murder.

Sami: Oh, like you care if I was traumatized. If I remember correctly, weren't you the one accusing me of the murder, saying that I must have killed the mayor to stop you and E.J. from making fools of yourselves? I don't believe my Dad said you could come in here. I think it's time for you to leave.

Nicole: Oh, no, no, no, no. Unh-unh. Whoa. Come back here, 'cause we have some things to discuss, Sami. Yeah. And now that E.J. is with your daddy, this is the perfect time. And isn't it cozy? Now, you have a kid with E.J., and I'm gonna give that kid a little baby brother or sister.

Sami: Wow, that just warms my heart.

Nicole: As if anything could.

Sami: Right. So, you're going to be giving my child a baby brother or sister. And?

Nicole: And... from one stepmom to another, it's time we set some ground rules -- now.

Max: My family, Mel. The family that -- that brought me up. I not only owe them my loyalty, but I love them and I respect them. Okay? And when I met you... it was like a dream -- okay? -- Because I met someone who shared my blood.

Melanie: But you're gonna turn your back on me?

Max: You know damn well I did everything I could to help you, but with this information, I just can't sit on this.

Melanie: Why not? It's not like anything I told you they can use in the investigation, anyways. And, Max, you know if your mom is in trouble -- I mean serious trouble -- I'll step up. I'll help her, just like I know you're gonna help me. Right, Max? Please. Please. You're gonna help me. [Knock on door]

Stephanie: Max?

Nicole: Rule number one -- I don't want our problems to affect our kids. I want Johnny and my child -- the child that E.J. and I consider a miracle -- I want very much -- I want them to bond as siblings. I mean, how fun it would be for Johnny to join E.J., Me, and my child on family vacations and such.

Sami: Are you kidding me? You think I'm going to allow that? I know that you don't care about my son. I don't think you care about E.J. I don't think you care about that baby you're carrying. Everything is a means to an end to you. All you care about is money.

Nicole: And here I thought we could have a civilized conversation.

Sami: Give me a break. That baby is a dollar sign to you. All you hear is "ka-ching." Money, money, money.

Nicole: And whereas everything you do is for the noblest of reasons.

Sami: Your history speaks for itself. It is obvious to everyone in Salem why you married Victor, though, of course, we're all wondering what possessed you to marry that creepy guy Trent. Oh, speaking of your dearly departed, I think it would be really interesting, if he were still alive, what he would say to E.J. about that baby.

Nicole: What Trent would say -- what -- who cares?

Sami: I'm sure E.J. would care if Trent explained to him what a lying, scheming, lowlife slut you really are.

Nicole: If you're trying to make the idiotic point that Trent would try to persuade E.J. that this baby isn't his, why, that really -- that really wouldn't work -- now, would it, Sami? -- Since there is a paternity test that proves that E.J. is, in fact, the father. And what Trent has to say is irrelevant -- isn't it? -- Because that cold-blooded bastard is dead and he is never coming back!

Melanie: Here she is, just like I predicted.

Stephanie: I thought you might be up here.

Melanie: Wow, you must just be psychic or something.

Stephanie: Are you two done?

Max: Yes.

Melanie: No. Fine. He's all yours, princess. I'm trusting you with my life.

Max: I know.

Stephanie: So, how'd it go? Did she tell you what happened with Trent?

Max: You know, I don't want to talk about it -- not right now.

Stephanie: Don't shut me out, Max. Don't you know how much I love you and I want what's best for you?

Max: Steph --

Stephanie: Let me finish. You may think this is about me hating Melanie, but it's not. It's about you and protecting you. That's all I care about. So, please, tell me what Melanie told you about that night.

Melanie: Uh, you're still here. I'm glad.

Bo: What's going on?

Melanie: Well, you're probably wondering about that little scene between me and Max earlier. I was acting odd. A little confusing, right?

Hope: To say the least.

Melanie: I'm really sorry.

Hope: Please, sit down. Why don't you explain? Maybe we won't be confused anymore.

Melanie: Yeah, I will, uh, because after talking to my brother, I realized that that's all I can do -- is just -- just come clean about everything. But neither of you are gonna like what I have to say.

Max: She asked me not to say anything, Stephanie. I can't. I can't say anything.

Stephanie: We had an agreement. Doesn't that mean anything to you?

Max: Yeah, of course it means something to me, but if you told me something in confidence, I can't say anything to anybody.

Stephanie: We are talking about a murder. A man was killed.

Max: Melanie is all alone, okay? She has nobody. She has no friends. She has no family, except for me. That's it. That's all she has, all right? She needs me.

Stephanie: I need you, too. Doesn't that mean anything to you anymore?

Max: How can you even ask me that?

Stephanie: Max, I love you so much, but all this stuff around your father has gone completely out of control. I am worried. I'm worried that you're in way over your head.

Max: I know what I'm doing.

Stephanie: I thought we were a team, that I can trust you to tell me everything. You can't do this on your own, so, please, let me help you. Talk to me.

Melanie: These last few weeks have been pretty strange, what with me leaving my home in France and my friends. Well, it wasn't really home there. Anyway, um, I've -- I've been a little disoriented, as you can imagine.

Hope: I'm sure it's been a big adjustment for you.

Melanie: I can't believe I just said that.

Bo: What?

Melanie: It just -- it sounds so shallow -- me getting all worked up over moving to Salem, when -- when I just lost my Father. That's why these last few weeks have been excruciating -- not the move -- me. My Father dying that horribly tragic, um, death. I'm sorry.

Bo: I'm sure it was very painful for you.

Melanie: I'm sorry. I don't mean to fall apart. It just all, um -- it just all sort of hit me again.

Hope: It's understandable.

Bo: You were gonna say something that we didn't want to hear.

Melanie: Right. Yeah. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to go off on a tangent.

Hope: No. It's okay. You've been through a very difficult time -- a terrible loss and so many changes.

Melanie: Well, some good. I mean, I met my brother. Your brother, too.

Bo: Yeah.

Melanie: What a guy, huh? Are we lucky, or what?

Bo: Definitely.

Melanie: I mean, having Max in my life has been this incredible gift.

Hope: What were you gonna tell us?

Melanie: Yes. Of course. Um, when Max told me about my Father's wallet -- how they found it in Stephanie's purse and then they gave it to you -- I guess they thought that I put it in there, which is insane, and I was totally mortified when I heard that.

Bo: 'Cause you had nothing to do with your father's death?

Melanie: Right. Exactly. I mean, I-I know that -- that me and Stephanie aren't exactly BFF. But she is my brother's girlfriend, and I would never do anything if I thought it would hurt him.

Bo: Where are you going with this?

Melanie: Okay. Um, Max said that the only fingerprints you found on the wallet belong to him and Stephanie, right? Of course -- police-officer code -- you don't have to confirm or deny anything.

Hope: No. We don't.

Melanie: Anyway, my point is that maybe I'm not the only suspect you should be focusing on right now. I mean, maybe you need to be looking at some people... closer to home.

Sami: That cold, cold heart of yours.

Nicole: Mine?

Sami: Well, we are talking about your dead husband. It's very unseemly to speak ill of the dead that way, Nicole.

Nicole: What do you want me to do, huh, have feelings for a man who pimped out his own daughter -- some sick, twisted, sadistic man?

Sami: Oh, like I'm supposed to trust your assessment of anybody?

Nicole: Oh, God, you're an idiot.

Sami: You are the one who stepped over the mayor's body like it was nothing.

Nicole: So what? What do you want me to do, burst into tears and beat my chest? I never met the guy before.

Sami: As if --


E.J.: Roman, you know as well as I do this mayor had enemies all over Salem. Now, why would you think that my family had anything to do with it?

Roman: Well, I don't know, E.J. Maybe because the guy got shot to death on your doorstep.

Nicole: Hang on a second. If you think E.J. had anything to do with this, you can forget it. We were in the living room making love.

E.J.: Thank you.

Nicole: Wait. You know, you daughter can vouch for us. She was leering through the windows. Right, Sami?

Roman: All right, all right. I'll tell you what. Do me a favor. Wait outside. I need to talk to Sami alone. Sami...are you sure you're up to this? I need to ask you some very difficult questions.

Sami: That's okay, Dad. I'm used to it. Fire away.

Nicole: I should go to the hospital.

E.J.: Why, is everything okay?

Nicole: No, I-I-I just want to get checked out and make sure everything's okay.

E.J.: All right.

Nicole: Damn it, E.J., what's more important -- a woman who doesn't want you or like you or the health of our unborn child?

E.J.: Stop.

Nicole: No, I won't stop when our baby's life is in danger.

Sami: So he pointed the gun at me, and I froze. But then -- I don't know -- I finally reacted and I did the only thing I could think of -- I swung my purse at him, and it hit him. He flinched, and I took off and managed to get away.

Roman: Okay. That's when you went into the house, right?

Sami: Yeah. Am I done?

Roman: One more question. You said this man was not wearing a mask. Is that right?

Sami: That's right.

Roman: Do you remember his face?

Sami: I'll never forget it.

Melanie: I-I get your close ties with Max and Stephanie, but facts are facts.

Bo: Hold on. You're accusing Max of this murder?

Melanie: No. N-no. I would never do that. How could you think I would ever do that?

Bo: Because you said he --

Melanie: No, you misunderstood me. Max is so kind -- such an amazing, great guy -- although, truth be told, I don't really know him that well.

Hope: Wait a minute. You just said that he was amazing.

Melanie: And he is. He is. I really believe that. He's -- but, you know -- you know how it is. Sometimes it takes a while to see people's other sides.

Bo: "Other sides"?

Melanie: That didn't come out right. Um, okay, what I mean is, people are complicated. So although what I know about Max I totally adore, um, there's just some things that I have yet to learn, which is cool, because now that I live in Salem, we'll have all the time in the world to get to know each other.

Hope: It's true. You will.

Melanie: But his girlfriend -- Stephanie -- there's something about her.

Bo: What do you mean?

Melanie: I'm sorry. I know she's your family.

Hope: No, no, no. That's okay. What's on your mind?

Melanie: It's not that she isn't nice. She is. She tries to be, anyways. Um, it's just that she's -- I hate to use this expression, because it's so over-used, such a cliché, but I can't really think of any other way to put it --

Hope: What expression would that be?

Melanie: Passive-aggressive. It's like you never know when Stephanie's genuinely being nice or when she's just putting a number on you.

Bo: A number?

Melanie: You see, her and Max -- they just -- they don't have the same energies, you know? I mean, she really is a whole nother kind of animal, right?

Max: And when Melanie said that she wasn't gonna go with him, he went after her. And then there was a struggle with the knife, and that's it. That's when she blacked out. And when she came to, she saw our Father with the knife in his back.

Stephanie: And you believe what she said?

Max: Yeah, I do.

Stephanie: Then you know what you need to do.

Max: No. No, I'm not going to Bo and Hope with this.

Stephanie: Max, even if she's not guilty, she was one of the last people to see Trent alive. She needs to be questioned.

Max: I said no. I'm not gonna let Melanie go down for something she might not have done. She could have been set up and then the real killer just walked away.

Stephanie: You don't know that she's not the real killer.

Max: I'm gonna keep my sister's confidence, all right? And you're gonna do the same, too. You will do the same thing.

Bo: Stephanie's a different kind of animal -- what do you mean by that?

Melanie: Okay. Okay look. I'm no policewoman, and I don't know anything about investigations, but what I do know is that my Father's wallet was found in her purse with her fingerprints all over it. Of course, Max's fingerprints were on it, too, but that's easily explained.

Hope: Is it?

Melanie: Well, yeah, when you add Stephanie into the equation. And, look, like I said, I'm sorry, 'cause I know she's a part of your family, but, still, I really hope you'll take a long, hard look at her and -- and bring my Father's killer to justice.

Max: Steph, I trusted you with this information because I love you. Now it's your turn to trust me, because I know my sister didn't do it.

Stephanie: I don't understand how you can --

Max: Steph...

Stephanie: Okay. I'll do what you want -- what you need me to do.

Max: I love you so much.

Stephanie: I love you, too. [Sniffles] [Exhales deeply] More than you'll ever know.

Roman: All right, Sami. Meet Spencer. He's our sketch artist.

Sami: Hi. Hi. Nice to meet you.

Spencer: Same here. Okay. Let's get started.

Nicole: What are we waiting for, E.J.?

E.J.: Fine. All right. I'm just gonna tell her that we're leaving.

Nicole: Wait. Hey. Sami's fine. She's got her father and the entire police force to babysit her. Can we please go? [Sighs] Forget it. I'll get there myself.

E.J.: Nicole, just wait, please.

Nicole: Will you give me one good reason why you need to say goodbye to her right now? Why is being with her more important than me and our baby?

Melanie: Hey, you guys, from your party girl here. Um, though I haven't really been in much of a partying mood lately. So apologies all across the board for my total lack of communication. Anyway, I should -- I should probably start by telling you that, um, I've decided this is gonna be my last webcast. And that was a pretty -- a pretty hard decision for me, but, um, anyways, I've been going through a lot of -- a lot of really personal, gruesome things, of which I will -- I will spare you the details of. Um, needless to say, it was a wake-up call for yours truly. It forced me to do a lot of thinking about life and... family... who your friends are... who you can trust. I'm sorry. Um, I, um -- I've just -- I've just learned a lot of really hard lessons, but thank God I have grown from them, so don't you worry about me, because I am going to be fine. I promise. [Sniffles] So to all of my near and dears, this is from your party girl, signing off for the last time. So...goodbye. And good luck. It's gonna work out just perfectly.

Hope: Steph.

Bo: Hey, look who's here. I thought you had homework.

Stephanie: I couldn't focus. There's a lot on my mind.

Bo: Like?

Stephanie: Remember earlier when you asked me if I knew why Max was being so secretive?

Bo: Yeah.

Stephanie: Well, there's something I think you should know about Melanie and what I believe she's done to Max.

E.J.: I'm sorry. You're absolutely right. Our baby comes first.

Nicole: Thank you.

E.J.: Come on. Let's go.

Sami: His, um, his face was fuller through here, and, yeah, he was clean-shaven, though he might have had stubble. Um... [Sighs] Damn it.

Roman: It's okay. It's all right. It's all right. Just take it slow.

Sami: Dad, this is a lot harder than I thought it was gonna be.

Spencer: You're doing fine.

Roman: Do you think that you could pick him out of a lineup?

Sami: 100%. Dad, if I ever see that murderer again, I will know it.

Man: That's what I'm saying. The girl saw me. Samantha Brady. A cute, little blonde with a big set of pipes. Oh, yeah. I know what I got to do. Take care of our little problem tonight.

Nicole: I tripped over the mayor. He was murdered outside the DiMera mansion today.

Lexie: I have to go. Excuse me.

Melanie: Thank you for believing in me and trusting me enough to keep my secret.

Bo: So she didn't exactly admit to killing him?

Stephanie: No, but she told Max she thinks she may have.
