Melanie: Actually, they just sold Nick's project for a lot of money. He's gonna be very wealthy.

Philip: Actually, that's why I'm here. As terrific as your new invention sounds, I'm afraid it's never gonna see the light of day.

Melanie: Are you freaking kidding me?

Nick: But I got an acceptance letter from the foundation. They gave me the okay to license the technology.

Melanie: Yeah. Show him the letter you got.

Philip: I know all about it. Look, I'm sorry, Nick, but on behalf of the foundation, I'm afraid I'm gonna have to rescind the approval.

Melanie: You can't do that.

Philip: Although I think it will happen, it could be a very long time before you make money on this project.

E.J.: I would like to speak to the Warden, please, or somebody who knows what the hell they're doing. Yes? My name is E.J. DiMera. I am Miss Nicole Walker's attorney. Now, could you please tell me where the hell she is?

Nicole: Oh, gosh, can't you move a little faster, please? Something's wrong with this baby. I can't lose this baby. [Exhales deeply] [Groans] God, the pain's getting worse. Can you please call Dr. Johnson at University Hospital and tell her I'm coming in, okay? Oh, God.

Bo: Well, congratulations, Mr. Mayor. I don't suppose it'll take you long to get used to that beautiful corner office down at City Hall.

Hope: We are so thrilled for you. No one deserves it more than you do -- and you.

Lexie: Thank you, honey.

Abe: Thank you. I mean, for your help.

Bo: Well, we kind of had fun putting up all those yard signs.

Hope: Make sure he works on his parade wave.

Lexie: Oh, like that? Okay.

Evan: Excuse me. Excuse me. A guy from the Chronicle wants a picture of the new mayor and first lady.

Bo: Ooh. Don't let it go to your head.

Lexie: See you later.

Bo: Oh, this is great. It's about time we had someone in office who's got it together.

Hope: It's a fresh start for Salem. Hey, you too, Brady -- Commissioner Brady.

Bo: Hey, hey, hey. Let's not jump the gun. Nothing's official here.

Hope: Come on, Brady. You're a shoo-in.

Bo: Right.

Hope: I'm gonna go check on your mom, see if she needs any help.

Bo: Okay.

Tony: You don't seem very pleased for your friend, Roman. The mayor of Salem -- that's quite an honor.

Roman: Yes, it is. Excuse me.

Tony: Can we be honest? There's a distinct possibility that my Father was complicit in the unfortunate demise of Mayor Marino, which also means that he was complicit in Abe Carver becoming the next mayor. [Inhales, exhales deeply] It's a shame, really. Abe's a good man. He would have won this election, regardless. I just wish my Father had stayed out of this.

Roman: You and me both.

Tony: I don't like the expression on Abe Carver's face. What do you think it means?

Roman: It could very well mean that he's going to turn the job down.

Evan: What do you say, Abe? How about that acceptance speech?

E.J.: Hey, Bo. Listen, I need your help.

Bo: What's the problem?

E.J.: Nicole. She's missing.

Nicole: Uh, what is this -- a holding area or something? You are taking me to University Hospital, right?

Officer: Well, of course. And on the way, if you're good, we'll stop and get some ice cream.

Nicole: This is outrageous.

Officer: Get used to it.

Nicole: For God's sake, I am pregnant. I-I need special treatment. I can't be tossed in here with these misfits.

Candy: Who are you calling "misfit," baby?

Nicole: Oh, I-I only meant that in the warmest, most complimentary way. Look, I need to see my doctor. This is a high-risk pregnancy. My baby's life is in danger. Look, officer, did you hear me? I need clean sheets, my flat-screen, my yoga DVD's. It's crucial to my treatment.

Nurse Sherry: Who's this?

Officer: This is Nicole. Being held on murder. She's pregnant and apparently experiencing some discomfort.

Nicole: "Discomfort"? I feel like my abdomen's gonna burst.

Nurse Sherry: Didn't Dr. Lance examine you last night?

Nicole: Look, this would just be a lot easier if you could transfer me to University Hospital, all right? I need to see a real doctor.

Nurse Sherry: A real doctor? What do you think we're doing here, playing dress-up? Let's get her into that bed over there.

Nicole: Okay. I-I really didn't mean it like that. I'm sorry. Oh, God.

Nurse Sherry: Here we go.

Nicole: Okay. Oh, careful. [Groaning] Um, wait. Please. D-don't -- [Door closes] Oh, my...

Evan: Can I have your attention, everyone? Our mayor would like to share a few words.

Abe: Well, first of all, I would like to thank you all for your hard work. I wouldn't be standing up here right now without the tireless hours that you all have invested on my behalf. And I would especially like to thank my wife for putting up with me for these last several weeks. Thank you, Lexie. I love you.

Lexie: I love you.

Abe: I am honored to have been elected your mayor, but that having been said, there is something that I need to share, something that all my constituents have a right to know.

Nick: I-I don't understand. I got the letter from the foundation yesterday. All of a sudden, they're reversing their approval?

Philip: I feel really bad about this, Nick.

Melanie: Isn't the foundation funded by Titan?

Philip: It is, but --

Melanie: Well, then reverse the reversal.

Philip: I can't do that now.

Melanie: Why the hell not?

Nick: It's okay, Melanie.

Melanie: No, Nick, it's not okay. Do you have any idea how hard he's worked on this, how many months and hours he's put into this project?

Philip: I know.

Melanie: You're gonna get him all excited and then rip the rug out from underneath him?

Philip: I didn't say it wasn't gonna happen. It's just not in our best interest right now.

Melanie: Then why did you send the letter?

Philip: I didn't. As C.E.O. of Titan, I'm supposed to review all financial decisions by the foundation. That letter you got was sent without my knowledge or approval.

Melanie: Then approve it.

Philip: I had every intention of doing that -- until I took a look at Nick's proposal.

Nick: So, what? Did I make a mistake?

Philip: Hey, don't get me wrong, Nick. Your alternative-fuel project shows a lot of promise and -- who knows? -- Maybe someday it'll help reduce our dependence on foreign oil. But you still have a lot of tests to run.

Nick: More tests? I thought I was pretty thorough.

Philip: Look, I'm sorry. It's just not gonna happen. I hope you understand.

Melanie: Oh, cut the bull, Philip. Chelsea put you up to this, didn't she?

Bo: How could Nicole be missing? She's in jail.

E.J.: No, she's not. I went there last night. Her cell was empty.

Bo: Maybe they moved her.

E.J.: No. The guard told me that she had some pregnancy issues. She was transferred to University Hospital. I called there. Nobody's checked in under that name.

Bo: You're sure about this?

E.J.: Yes, I'm sure. Are you gonna help me or not?

Nicole: Nurse! Oh, please. Nurse! Nurse!

Candy: Shut your pie hole! She went out for a smoke break. It could be a while.

Nicole: Okay. Okay, thank you.

Candy: Candy.

Nicole: What a lovely name. Candy. Is that because you're so sweet?

Candy: [Chuckles]

Nicole: What happened to your forehead, Candy?

Candy: Heat-butted another prisoner. A blond bitch. Thought she was better than the rest of us. [Laughs] I was trying to bail her out of the joint -- through the window. The window was closed.

Nicole: Well, I'm sure a little makeup there and then no one will ever notice.

Candy: [Snorts] Check it out. Sherry, R.N., forgot her smokes again! [Laughs] Sherry, R.N., forget her smokes a-- I ain't sharing. [Laughter]

Doreen: Yo. Pass me that bottle there, huh?

Nicole: The rubbing alcohol?

Doreen: I need to get my buzz on.

Nicole: You're gonna drink that?

Doreen: Don't you be judging me.

Nicole: Oh, I'm not. I'm sorry. I'm not.

Doreen: [Spits] Ooh! Now that's what I'm talking about, yeah. That'll kill the pain. Got to have me a little something after I crashed my ride into that big, old tree. Mind if I take this?

Nicole: Knock yourself out.

Nurse Sherry: Which one of you took my cigarettes? You know I'm gonna write you up for this.

Nicole: Uh, nurse, wait a minute.

Nurse Sherry: I'm on a break.

Nicole: I-I need my own room. Don't you -- don't you have a special area for --

Nurse Sherry: What? VIPs? Wall-to-wall carpet? Cable TV? Room service?

Nicole: Yeah, I'd like to be transferred there.

Nurse Sherry: What do you think this is, the towers hotel?

Nicole: Can I -- can I just have a screen for privacy?

Nurse Sherry: [Laughs] The doctor will be in shortly. [Laughs]

Nicole: Nurse. No. Wait. Nurse! Nurse! What's your problem?

Candy: You.

Abe: There's been a lot said about me and my family during the course of this campaign. Some of it's true. Some of it's not true. And over the next several weeks, I will delineate fact from fiction. But tonight I want to assure all of Salem that I am committed to making life in this city better for our children and our children's children. I am honored and humbly accept this position as your mayor.

Bo: Thanks, Jeff.

E.J.: So, what did he say? Does he know where Nicole is?

Bo: She was moved to the prison hospital ward.

E.J.: Is the -- is the baby all right? Is the baby all right?!

Bo: I don't know.

Nicole: Would you stop staring at me?

Candy: No.

Nicole: Look, if we're gonna be stuck in here together, can't we be...somewhat amicable? [Laughs]

Candy: Doreen, she thinks that we should be amicable. [Laughter] Us -- amicable.

Nicole: It -- it means "friendly."

Candy: Oh. You think that we should be friends?

Nicole: Uh, you're sitting on my leg.

Candy: Am I?

Nicole: Get off. You're hurting me.

Candy: Now, is that any way for you to treat your brand-new best friend?

Nicole: Uh, has anyone ever introduced you to a toothbrush?

Candy: Oh, you're trying to get sassy with me. That's what you're doing right now -- getting sassy.

Nurse Sherry: Candy, what are you doing out of your bed? Get back in there.

Candy: [No audio]

Nurse Sherry: Go on.

Candy: Time to give Candy her candy. [Chuckles]

Nurse Sherry: Why you giving this woman so much grief?

Candy: Oh, we're friends now. Tell her, Nicole.

Nurse Sherry: I got my eye on you anything happen like the last time, that's one week in solitary.

Nicole: What happened last time?

Nurse Sherry: She had an altercation with one of the inmates, broke the woman's jaw.

Candy: You thought I was kidding about that head-butt.

Nurse Sherry: That's about enough.

Nicole: Oh, baby, what did I get us into? You, you know what? Um, I'm feeling 100% better. Could you please take me back to my cell?

Nurse Sherry: 100% better?

Nicole: 1,000.

Nurse Sherry: That's a pretty miraculous recovery.

Nicole: Yeah.

Nurse Sherry: But I should just have the doctor take a look, just to be safe.

Nicole: Well, I-I feel totally fine. There's no pain -- no pain.

Candy: I could take a look at that for you real quick.

Nurse Sherry: No more trouble out of you, huh? You ladies, play nice.

Nicole: Oh, come on, Sherry. Please. I need your help. I deserve better than this. I --

Woman: So, what's the big rush to get out of here? You don't like hanging with us? You think you're better than we are?

Nicole: Mind your own business.

Woman: Ooh, check it out. The new girl's got attitude.

Nicole: The new girl just wants to be left alone.

Woman: What do you say, Candy? Show her who's boss?

Candy: It's about time somebody put her in her place.

Nicole: Look, ladies, I-I don't want any trouble, okay?

Woman: Too late.

Philip: Chelsea had nothing to do with this.

Melanie: You're lying.

Philip: It was my decision to rescind the approval -- mine alone.

Melanie: Never trust a guy in a suit -- that's my motto.

Philip: I didn't even know about this letter until a few hours ago. Why am I explaining myself to you?

Nick: It's okay, Melanie. I believe him.

Philip: Thank you, Nick.

Melanie: Yeah? Well, I don't. Chelsea knew about that letter. I'm just surprised the mighty Philip Kiriakis let her take advantage of him like that.

Philip: What is your problem?

Nick: Is there anything I can do to change your mind?

Philip: Go back and examine your theorems, pinpoint the flaws, and fine-tune them until you get the positive results. Then you can resubmit. I know you can do it, Nick.

Melanie: Oh, sure. That'll be a breeze. I mean, do you have any idea how long it took him to come up with the original proposal?

Nick: He's right. I don't want my name on it until it's absolutely perfect. I'll get you the new data as soon as possible.

Philip: Take your time. I want this done right so we don't have to go through all this again.

Nick: Thanks for the second chance, Philip.

Philip: Glad to do it.

Melanie: Oh! He's full of himself! Self-important jerk.

Nick: I'm so sorry, Melanie. I know you wanted to see your cut sooner. It looks like it might be a while.

Melanie: No, Nick, this isn't about money. I care about you. I mean, you put your blood and sweat and tears into this. This thing is your baby.

Nick: You know what? We're gonna figure this out somehow. I'm gonna go back. I'm gonna take a fresh look at everything, we'll figure out where all the discrepancies are, and I don't want you to worry about it, all right? We are gonna get this approved. I promise. In fact, I should probably go by the office right now before it's too late.

Melanie: Good idea.

Nick: Unless you want to get a bite to eat at the Brady Pub first?

Melanie: That's okay. I have some pizza in the fridge I can do.

Nick: Are you sure? It's my treat.

Melanie: Yeah. I'll be fine. You just march your cute butt into that office and put your thinking cap on, and we will do the pub another time, okay?

Nick: Okay. Whatever.

Melanie: Have fun at work, honey. [Chuckles] Damn it! Damn it. [Sighs] Can't even afford a pair of those socks.

Melanie: [Knock on door] Wonderful. You're back.

Philip: May I come in?

Melanie: No. I said no, Philip. I have stuff to do.

Philip: That's too bad, 'cause you and I have a lot to talk about.

Evan: Here you go.

Lexie: Thanks, Evan.

Evan: No problem. Where's my man Theo?

Lexie: He's home with the sitter. He doesn't do really well with crowds.

Evan: Well, he's got to be proud of his old man, just like his mom.

Lexie: You have no idea.

Hope: Hey, where have you been? You missed Abe speech.

Bo: Uh, E.J. pulled me aside for a second.

Hope: What did E.J. want? 

Bo: He's worried about Nicole. He couldn't find her.

Hope: Isn't she in jail?

Bo: Yeah. Apparently she had some trouble with her pregnancy, ended up in the hospital ward.

Hope: I hope the baby's okay.

Bo: Yeah. Me too. E.J.'s on his way there now. So, I missed the speech, huh?

Hope: Yeah. It was great. Abe really had the crowd going.

Bo: [Chuckles] Look at that. Schmoozing like a pro.

Hope: At least we know we have one elected official who is not in DiMera's back pocket.

Bo: Yeah.

Roman: Well, congratulations, partner. You deserve it.

Abe: Well, thank you, Roman.

Roman: Yeah, I was worried there for a while. I didn't know whether you were gonna take it or leave it.

Abe: Well, I'm conflicted, to say the least. Just the thought that my father-in-law might be responsible for Marino's death -- it kind of puts a damper on things.

Roman: Abe, you had nothing to do with that.

Abe: I know I didn't, and that's exactly why I took this job -- to get scum like that off the streets.

Roman: Absolutely. Right on.

Abe: You know, I refuse to let DiMera or anyone else keep me from my civic duty.

Roman: Our visit to Stefano's -- as far as I'm concerned, that never happened.

Nicole: Nurse! Somebody!

Woman: You're not afraid of us, now, are you, sugar cakes? 'Cause we're gonna take real good care of you. Ain't that right, candy?

Candy: For sure.

Nicole: Okay, look, ladies, if I offend d you earlier, I'm -- I'm sorry, but can't we just talk about this, like mature, rational people?

Candy: No!

Nicole: Back off! Knock it off! Nurse!

E.J.: Is Miss Nicole Walker in there? I need to speak with her immediately, please.

Nurse Sherry: Patients are not allowed visitors.

E.J.: I understand, but this is urgent. I'm her attorney.

Nurse Sherry: I don't care if you're George Clooney. No exceptions.

E.J.: Look, it is imperative that I see her.

Nurse Sherry: Are you this passionate about all your clients, Mr. DiMera?

E.J.: She's pregnant. Look, the child that she's carrying is -- is my child. I was told that there was some issues, some complications with the pregnancy.

Nurse Sherry: We had a doctor with her last night. Everything checked out fine.

E.J.: Just five minutes -- that's all I'm asking you.

Nurse Sherry: Five minutes?

E.J.: Five.

Nurse Sherry: No.

E.J.: Come on, lady, will you have a heart, please?!

Nurse Sherry: Sir, are you gonna leave on your own, or do I need to call you an escort?

E.J.: I'm not going anywhere until I get to see Miss Walker and I know that she and my child are fine. Are we clear?

Hope: So, Lex, what do you suppose Abe's first order of official business will be?

Lexie: Ah, good question. I do know he'd like to name the new police commissioner.

Hope: I wonder who that could be.

Bo: Oh, man.

Roman: So, are we looking at our new commissioner?

Abe: I think we have our man.

Roman: Are you gonna give him the news today?

Abe: As soon as we get our ducks in a row downtown, the sooner we'll be able to focus on our problem.

Roman: Meaning Stefano.

Abe: Dropping hints about Marino's death -- it's not the smartest move he's made.

Roman: And one thing we know -- Stefano doesn't leave a paper trail.

Abe: It doesn't mean we can't nail him.

Roman: No. We just need to get enough to connect him to the crime, and then --

Abe: Then we put the old man in jail, which is a day we've been waiting for for a long time.

Roman: Yeah. If our shooter is one of Stefano's men, I'll find out.

Abe: M gonna want a piece of that action, too, you know?

Roman: Why don't you let me do the dirty work?

Abe: I'm serious, Roman. I'll take the fall, just as long as we collar Stefano.

Roman: Abe, you do your job, I'll do my job, and then maybe -- just maybe -- we will finally have the upper hand on Stefano.

E.J.: No, I really appreciate it. Thank you. This is far from over.

Nicole: [Grunts]

Woman: Doesn't she look like that chick from block 4?

Candy: Yeah right. Right. That one that was hanging from the bunk with the bed sheet wrapped around her neck.

Nicole: Please don't do this. I'm pregnant. If anything happens to this baby --

Woman: We're not gonna touch your baby.

Candy: The only thing we're interested in is little...old... you.

Nicole: [Screams]

Max: Can I get you something?

Nick: Something toxic would hit the spot. I've had a rough day.

Max: Yeah, I figured as much. It sounded like you're all doom and gloom on the phone.

Nick: [Chuckles] Go ahead. Read it.

Max: They accepted your fuel project. Dude, that's awesome. Congratulations. Why are you so bummed out?

Nick: Well, the foundation that sent the letter has reneged on their offer.

Max: What?

Nick: [Clears throat] Philip Kiriakis stopped by.

Max: Yeah.

Nick: Apparently he's the one who has to give the final okay since Titan funded the foundation.

Max: Yeah? So?

Nick: This letter was sent before he approved it, and Philip seems to think that there are some "flaws" in my work that need to be re-examined.

Max: Right. The scientist that he is. So, what do you think?

Nick: Well, you know, I took a look at it before I came over, and he's right. I mean, there's definitely some things that could be tweaked.

Max: Are you gonna turn it in again, though?

Nick: Philip's being cool about it. He said he'd review his decision if I can hand in more data that supports the proposal.

Max: So it's all good then. You're fine.

Nick: I will be with the help of a certain science-savvy bartender.

Max: Come on, Nick.

Nick: I'm serious. I'm serious, Max. You've been with me on this since the beginning.

Max: You don't need me.

Nick: If you hadn't redone the original calculations, I never would have gotten the grant in the first place.

Max: You're giving me way too much credit, man.

Nick: You're the only one who understands these equations. Please. Please help me out.

Melanie: Come on in, Philip. What do you want?

Philip: 250 bucks for jeans? I'd hate to see your credit-card bill.

Melanie: Okay, first of all, that's not mine.

Philip: Listen, Nick may fall for your routine, but I don't.

Melanie: Make your point, Philip. Some of us have lives.

Philip: Oh, I'm sorry. What, do you got a hot date or something? It must be tough to keep your social calendar straight with all those friends you have.

Melanie: I have plenty of friends.

Philip: Aside from Nick, who are they? The mailman?

Melanie: You are such a jerk.

Philip: And Nick may be your friend, but Chelsea seems to be under the imprison that you're only after his money. Where would she get that idea?

Melanie: Well, that's a total crock, okay? Chelsea's just jealous that Nick likes me.

Philip: I don't think so.

Melanie: And now she's spreading rumors about me. That stupid bitch. It's bad enough she already derailed Nick's project.

Philip: I was the one who made that decision, okay? Chelsea had nothing to do with it. The project was incomplete.

Melanie: I bet you didn't even look at it.

Philip: I gave Nick a second chance. The work didn't measure up. If it does, I'll rush it through.

Melanie: Sure, you will.

Philip: I want this to happen, believe me. It would be great for the foundation and for Titan. Hell, Nick could be set for life, and he deserves it. He's a great guy, Melanie.

Melanie: You think you have to tell me that?

Philip: I just hope he wises up to you.

Melanie: And what's that supposed to mean?

Philip: I know you're only after his money, but that's not gonna happen. If you're looking for some quick cash, I suggest you do that somewhere else.

Abe: You think we could duck out here?

Roman: Oh, come on. You need a little party time, man.

Lexie: Roman's right. It's your night, honey. Try to relax. Enjoy it.

Bo: Yeah, yeah. You should party. Tomorrow at this time, you're gonna be into it up to your eyeballs.

Abe: I do have a lot of work ahead of me -- that's for sure. City Hall needs a good housecleaning, and I'm gonna need some help.

Bo: Don't even have to ask. We brought our brooms and mops and stuff.

Abe: I'm also going to need a new police commissioner. So, what do you say, Bo?

Bo: Well, I say that's a pretty big decision. I might need some time to think about it. Abe, why do you think I wore this damn tie? I'll take the job. I'd be honored to be your commissioner, Mayor Carver.

Abe: And I'm honored to have you on board, Commissioner Brady.

Bo: Gee!

Nick: What do you say, Max? Help me out.

Max: Uh... all right, all right. What are friends for?

Nick: Oh, you are the man! Thank you so much, bro. I owe you big-time.

Max: Don't worry about it, all right?

Nick: No, I'm serious. As soon as the funds come through, I'm gonna take you out to a Bears game or a Bulls game or whatever one you want, and I'm not taking no for an answer.

Max: All right. I'll take what I can get.

Nick: All right. I really appreciate this, and if it goes through and the proposal gets accepted the second time around --

Max: Which we will. We'll get that.

Nick: Exactly. A little boost in the finance department wouldn't be too bad.

Max: I could use that.

Nick: Plus, I know Melanie is lacking in the cash department, as well.

Max: Okay. What -- what does my sister have to do with this?

Nick: Well, assuming we get this done, she'll get Trent's share of the profits.

Max: You can fight that. Talk to Mickey and see what he says.

Nick: Why would I do that?

Max: Because it's not Trent's project. It's yours.

Nick: Yeah, but he helped fund it. A good share of the profits belong to him, and obviously he can't collect it, so it defaults to Melanie.

Max: Did she put you up to this?

Nick: No.

Max: She's been putting on the pressure, hasn't she? "Oh, how am I gonna get that new bag from ballistics?"

Nick: It's not like that.

Max: Oh, really? Then what is it? Why are you bending over backwards for her?

Nick: Because --

Max: 'Cause what?

Nick: 'Cause I'm -- I'm in love with her.

Candy: Get your hands off of me

Woman: Would you rather go down to the hole? 'Cause I can arrange that.

Nurse Sherry: 110/70. and the baby's heartbeat sounds fine.

Nicole: That's great. When can you get me out of here?

Nurse Sherry: Dr. Lance would like you to stay overnight, just to be safe.

Nicole: You think I'll be safe in here? I'm better off in a pit full of vipers.

Nurse Sherry: I'll have a guard on duty right outside.

Nicole: That's not good enough.

E.J.: Thank you.

Nicole: E.J.

Nurse Sherry: Didn't I tell you to leave?

E.J.: Didn't I tell you I'd be back?

Nurse Sherry: What's this?

E.J.: It's a court order. It gives me permission to take Miss Nicole Walker out of the premises immediately.

Nicole: Oh, hallelujah. Hi.

E.J.: How are you? How's the baby?

Nicole: We're both fine. Just get me out of here.

E.J.: Come on. Bring the chair.

Woman: Hey, tall, dark, and sexy. Where's my court order?

Nicole: Ignore them.

Woman: I'm talking to you, hot stuff.

E.J.: Are you comfortable? You are? Let's go. Can you open the door, please?

Nicole: It's been a slice of heaven, ladies. We'll have to do it again.

Candy: [Smooches]

Photographer: One more picture, Mr. Mayor, for our morning edition?

Abe: Well, how about one of our new police commissioner?

Bo: That's okay, Abe. Thanks.

Abe: Get over here, Bo. I'm your boss. That's an order.

Bo: Wow. So that's the way it's gonna be?

Abe: Come on.

Roman: All right. Smile pretty.

Photographer: Thank you.

Tony: Well, congratulations to both of you. I feel like Salem is finally in capable hands.

Abe: Well, I hope you're right. We have some challenges. That's for sure.

Bo: Yeah. Like a couple of homicides we have to solve.

Melanie: You got me all figured out, don't you, Philip?

Philip: Yep.

Melanie: This is about my Father. You still think I killed him, even though the police cleared me.

Philip: The Salem P.D.'s been wrong before.

Melanie: What is your deal? Why have you decided to hate me so much?

Philip: I don't hate you, Melanie. In fact, as crazy as it may sound, I see a bit of myself in you.

Melanie: Am I supposed to be flattered by that?

Philip: That's up to you.

Melanie: Why would you say that?

Philip: Hmm?

Melanie: How are we anything alike?

Philip: You're tenacious, strong-willed. You know what you want, and you go after it, and you don't let anything or anyone get in the way. In business, that's an asset. Those are the people who make it. But if you take it to a personal level, like you have, you came across as abrasive and self-indulgent. In simpler terms, a spoiled, little brat.

Melanie: Is that how you think Nick sees me?

Philip: That's the problem. Nick only sees what he wants to see.

Melanie: I'm sorry you feel that way, Philip, because I genuinely care about Nick. And, believe it or not, we're good for each other.

Philip: I don't believe it. Nick may be good for you, but you are so, so wrong for him. Couldn't be worse.

Melanie: Why would you say that?

Philip: Nick's too nice a guy. He couldn't handle a girl like you.

Melanie: And you can?

Philip: Yeah. I can.

Max: You're in love?

Nick: Yeah.

Max: With Melanie?

Nick: That's why I'm trying to help her.

Max: I can't even believe this.

Nick: What is so surprising?

Max: Come on, Nick. You barely even know her.

Nick: How well do you know her? But you loved her enough to try and protect her, even when you thought she may have killed your father.

Max: I was protecting her because I believed correctly that she was innocent. Plus, she's my sister, and I even know Melanie's trouble.

Nicole: I never thought I would be so happy to see the inside of my jail cell again.

E.J.: Those women didn't hurt you, did they?

Nicole: I would hardly call them women. More like creatures. But, the nurse -- she came in before they had a chance to attack me.

E.J.: I am so sorry that you're having to endure all of this.

Nicole: Hey, it builds character, right?

E.J.: You sure you're okay? I mean, the baby's okay? You don't have any cramping or bleeding or anything?

Nicole: Our baby's fine, E.J.

E.J.: Okay. When I came here last night and that guard told me that you had some pregnancy problems, you have absolutely no idea what went through my mind. This -- this baby means the world to me. I-I, uh, I-I don't know what I'd do if something happened to him or her. Anyway, nothing did, so...

Nicole: You still think I'm guilty, don't you? You still think I murdered Trent.

E.J.: Why would you say that?

Nicole: Look, E.J., I-I just went through one of the most horrific experiences in my life, and, yes, yes, I am touched that you care about the safety of this baby, but -- call me selfish. I-was hoping that you came back here to save me.

E.J.: Nicole, I came back here to save both of you.

Rafe: You might just be the most challenging case I have had yet.

Melanie: You're kind of acting a lot like --

Philip: Acting like who?

Melanie: Like my father.

Nicole: I would do anything for this baby.

E.J.: Does "anything" include telling the father the truth?
