Chelsea: You don't sound happy.
Max: Yeah. I can't get this j-- piece of junk to -- ugh, damn it. [Sighs] Oh. [Chuckles] I did it. I have to remember that one. [Chuckles] What's up? What?
Chelsea: It's my grandma. It's bad, Max. It's really bad.
Lucas: Okay. Yeah. Yeah, I will. Thank you very much. I really appreciate it. Okay, take care. Austin and Will's results are being sent over. Billie's gonna take her test. And as soon as she's done, they're gonna send those over, too.
Chloe: That's good. See, the odds are getting better.
Lucas: Yeah, right.
Chloe: Hey, listen. I know how hard it is to wait.
Lucas: Just you think we'd have a match somewhere within our family -- me or Austin, Billie, anybody.
Chloe: Yeah, I think so.
Lucas: I mean, I know the odds aren't good. I know that, what, 70% of all patients don't find matches within their family.
Chloe: Come on, Lucas. Don't think like that. Think of the 30% who do. Now, you can't show Kate that you're scared.
Lucas: But I am.
Chloe: Well, that's what I'm here for. You can tell me anything.
Lucas: I don't want to talk about it anymore. I just want to enjoy being with you.
Chloe: Okay. Then that's what's gonna happen.
Melanie: Thanks, Philip. Why don't you have me learn the entire encyclopedia next? Well, no wonder I'm so burned out. I've been at this for... half an hour. Well, time for a break. [Clears throat] Should I leave Maggie a message and tell her not to touch the computer? Though it is her laptop. Um..."Mrs. Horton... don't touch. Work. Project." Okay. Okay. Yeah, okay.
Kate: [Sighs] Great. I must look like hell. So nice you're here to see me.
Philip: And a pleasant hello to you, too.
Kate: [Chuckles] Go away. Go back to work.
Philip: Yeah? You gonna make me?
Kate: [Chuckles] You know, one of the upsides of having a less-than-traditional mother is that you can behave like a less-than-traditional son. And I don't have to have you here. I don't need you holding my hand.
Philip: I'm not holding your hand. I'm just...hanging out.
Kate: Why? 'Cause I'm so much fun to be with? I'm gonna tell you the same thing that I told Lucas. You don't have to worry about me giving up.
Philip: I'm not worried about that.
Kate: I'm gonna fight like hell.
Philip: But not alone.
Daniel: Absolutely not alone.
Marlena: John, there's been a mistake. I'm so sorry. Dr. Taylor is much older, and he also happens to be --
Charlotte: A man. You're talking about my Father, who was indeed a man.
Marlena: He was?
Charlotte: He died. I've taken over his practice.
Marlena: And you felt no need to notify me about that, especially when the referral was for Dr. Kenneth Taylor?
John: Oh, Blondie, let's not get all caught up in a technicality, just when everything seems to be going so well.
Kate: Are the results in yet?
Daniel: We're processing the tests we did here. I got an e-mail from London that they've scheduled Billie's test. And the lab got Austin and Will's results from Zurich.
Kate: I don't want Will to be a donor. He's too young.
Philip: Yeah. You wouldn't want to give the kid a chance to save his grandmother's life.
Kate: Would you do me a favor and bar visitors, especially smart-ass -- [Gasps and moans]
Philip: Squeeze. Squeeze. Hard as you can.
Daniel: I'm gonna get you --
Kate: No! No. No more morphine. [Moans]
Daniel: It's not a sign of weakness if you use morphine.
Kate: Okay, that's better. As long as I'm alive, I want to feel alive, okay? That's why I don't want you here 'cause I don't want you to see that.
Philip: Why? You don't think I can take it?
Kate: No, because I can't take it. [Crying] Look, I'm not trying to be a martyr, okay, Philip? God knows that... I'm hoping there's a match out there for me.
Kate: But I am who I am. And I have to face the facts. And this is bad.
Philip: No one's denying that.
Kate: That's not what I mean. I mean, if the treatment gets too bad, I have to know that you're going to respect whatever I decide. Can you do that? Philip, can you do that?
Melanie: Hi. Hey. Uh, I didn't expect to run into you down here. I thought the pier was only for people like me -- river rats. That's what my Dad used to call me. I'm being sarcastic. I mean, you probably already knew that. He was right, though, about me loving the water. If it weren't so cold right now, I'd jump right in.
Maggie: What's got you so worked up today?
Melanie: Work [Clears throat] has me so worked up today. So, I thought I'd take a break from studying and everything. I left you a note.
Maggie: Hmm. What are you studying, Melanie?
Melanie: Uh, Philip said I could only keep the job if I learned everything on the USB cord, so that's what I'm doing. Oh, and I'm using your computer. I hope that's okay.
Maggie: It's fine. It -- I want you to do well in this new job that Philip gave you.
Melanie: Thanks. I just wonder if he wants the same thing.
Melanie: At first, I thought he was just being nice. But now I think he just gave me this test that I can't possibly pass to prove to himself that he is not as mean and stuck-up as I said he was.
Maggie: Philip is not like that.
Melanie: Then explain why he gave me all that stuff to learn in one day and then won't return my phone calls or answer any of my messages.
Maggie: Well, it's easy to explain. He's got a lot more on his mind than you right now.
Melanie: His mom being sick.
Maggie: Yeah. Last night, they thought she was okay, and right now, she's already back in the hospital.
Melanie: I feel so bad for him. I wish there was something I could do.
Maggie: Maybe there is.
Maggie: Yeah. You know, if someone is going through something like what Philip is going through, just the offer to help means a lot.
Melanie: I don't -- I don't know what you mean.
Maggie: Well, Lucas told me that right now, they are testing everyone in the immediate family, looking for a bone-marrow match. And if they can't find a family match, they have to expand their search.
Melanie: I could -- I could do that. I could do something for somebody else! Aah!
Maggie: What a concept! [Both laughing]
Marlena: Really? You think everything is going fine?
John: You don't?
Marlena: Well, you were so disturbed when I passed on your files without your permission. And now you seem fine when Dr. Taylor opened those files, even though they were addressed to somebody else. And then she began treating you.
Charlotte: Excuse me. I did not treat Mr. Black. This was just a consultation. And since I've taken over my Father's practice, yes, I do open the mail.
Marlena: I should have been notified.
Charlotte: I agree. But I left several messages at your office. I would have thought you got at least one of them.
Marlena: We had a temp.
John: See what happens when you rush to judgment?
Marlena: So little amuses you. I'm glad this does. I'm sorry to hear about your father's death. I was a great admirer of his.
Charlotte: Well, the feeling was mutual. He spoke very highly of you.
Marlena: So, you're taking over his practice, huh?
Charlotte: Yes. And I am very qualified, Dr. Evans. Believe me. My Father made sure of that. On the cover letter, you referred to Mr. Black's history as --
John: Oh, please, call me John.
Charlotte: You referred to his history as possibly being related to my Father's research. You were right. And I'm continuing that same research. Based on his history and our initial consultation, I do think that I can help... John.
Charlotte: I just have one reservation.
Marlena: What's that?
Charlotte: The relationship between the two of you.
Lucas: I'm sorry.
Chloe: About what?
Lucas: We just got engaged. It should be a happy time for you. We should be going to parties and telling everybody. But instead, you got to keep it a secret.
Chloe: You know, Lucas, most of my life, my secrets have been sad ones. And Kate really doesn't need anything extra to deal with right now. And I -- well, on the inside, I have this really happy secret.
Lucas: Look at that thing, huh? Once again, Chloe puts a positive spin on things. I just don't know how you do that. Are you sure you're happy?
Chloe: Yes, I really am. And not just 'cause I get to tell my Mom and Dad and ask Nicole to be a bridesmaid.
Lucas: [Laughs] You got to do that.
Chloe: Not because we're gonna be moving into our incredibly beautiful house.
Lucas: It is beautiful. Then why?
Chloe: Well, I'm happy because, you know, this is a future that I can really look forward to. And we're gonna get through the bad times like this and the good times that are coming together.
Lucas: Listen to you. I like the way you think.
Chloe: I like the way you are.
Chelsea: Thank you.
Max: Yep. Sure you don't want anything to eat?
Chelsea: No, I'm not hungry. I'm not anything. I'm numb.
Max: I'm so sorry, Chelse.
Chelsea: We were just having a party for her to celebrate that she was fine.
Max: You know how strong she is.
Chelsea: Yeah, and I really wish that everyone would stop saying that.
Max: Right. I'm sure you're pretty sick of hearing all the clichés.
Chelsea: I'm sorry. I'm just really burnt out. You know, she needs me. My whole family needs me, and I don't think that I'm worth anything.
Max: That makes no sense at all, Chelse.
Chelsea: Everybody is getting tested to see if they're a match. Everybody -- everybody in my family except for me. I'm useless, Max.
Kate: [Voice breaking] I know this isn't fair, and I know that I'm putting a lot of pressure on you.
Philip: I got to say, I think cancer takes fair off the table.
Kate: I promise you that I'm going to take every chance -- every chance there is. But if there comes a time... when there's no more chances, then I want to be able to tell you. Then I want you to tell the others and make them understand.
Philip: [Voice breaking] I'll do my best.
Kate: I'm asking this of you because... I think you have turned into a most amazing man. And I know you can handle it. I know you can. Now get out of here, okay? I need to talk to Daniel.
Philip: I love you.
Kate: I love you, too. We won't speak of this again. [Sighs] Do you think I was too hard on him?
Daniel: No. No, you're family. You get each other. And you took care of some important business.
Daniel: But you know how you said you won't speak of it again, hmm?
Daniel: I don't want you to think about it again because right now, you have other things to concentrate on.
Philip: Hey, Steph. What are you doing here?
Stephanie: They said that these had to be signed right away. I offered to bring them.
Stephanie: How's your mom doing?
Philip: About the same.
Stephanie: I know from when I was scared about my parents, sometimes you don't want to talk.
Philip: [Sighs] Yeah, I bet you knew that they were on your side... like I know you're on mine.
Stephanie: Right. I'll get these back for you.
Philip: Oh, Steph. Thanks.
Stephanie: Philip. I, um -- I should probably get these back. Uh, is there anything else I can do for you?
Philip: Tell Marie I'll probably be here all night.
Stephanie: Take care of yourself, okay?
Philip: I will. I promise. And, you know, the test results are gonna start coming in, so maybe we'll get good news.
Stephanie: Yeah. Oh, um, I got tested. I know it's probably a long shot, but you never know, right?
Philip: Right. You never know. So, listen, um, when you get these back to work, go ahead and take the rest of the day off. I'd like to think somebody was having a nice day.
Stephanie: Thanks, Philip. Uh, I really hope you get the good news. All right, bye.
Philip: Bye. [Sighs] What are you doing here?
Marlena: You have reservations about our relationship?
Charlotte: It's personal. It's professional. You're divorced. You're still involved. The boundaries are blurred.
John: Oh, I hate when that happens.
Marlena: You seem to know quite a bit about blurred boundaries.
John: Well, a lot of it came out during our consultation. Dr. Taylor's demeanor, the non-sterile environment -- I just really opened up.
Marlena: Non-sterile environment?
John: We met in the park. I found it very...freeing.
Marlena: Are you aware that John's condition is medically based? He needs a battery of neurological tests, as well as talk therapy.
Charlotte: You see, Dr. Evans, this is exactly my point. You are very personally connected with John's treatment, and you have the medical background to second-guess, interfere.
Marlena: I wouldn't do that. I'm a professional.
Charlotte: Not intentionally. But I think that before John and I move forward with the treatment, I need to know that you will respect the confidentiality of our relationship.
Marlena: I think before you move forward, you should ask John about what he wants. He's been very reluctant.
Charlotte: John, are you willing to see me again?
John: Oh, absolutely. That is, Blondie, if you're willing to back off, for my sake.
Kate: What are you writing?
Daniel: Nothing important. Just making you think I know what I'm doing.
Kate: There's really nothing for you to be doing right now, is there?
Daniel: Well, wait for test results.
Kate: Mm. But you don't have to be here to do that. I mean, a nurse could do what you're doing, right?
Daniel: That's not a very nice thing to say at all.
Kate: Have you eaten yet today?
Daniel: You know what I'm writing? "Patient is a nag."
Kate: [Laughs] I'm scared.
Daniel: Of course you are.
Kate: [Voice breaking] I'm scared this is getting too personal for you.
Daniel: I, um... I think that maybe that's out of your control. I want you around, Kate. I'm going to do everything I can to make sure you are.
Kate: [Sighs] I think you're putting too much pressure on yourself because of what happened to your wife.
Daniel: No, this is not about her or me. This is only about you.
Max: I know I'm supposed to be nice to you and everything, but you're really starting to tick me off.
Chelsea: Excuse me?
Max: Yeah, y-you're -- you're wringing your hands because you can't get tested. Do you remember why you can't get tested? You gave a part of your pancreas to save your father's life, okay? So, what, you don't get to save somebody. Someone else doesn't get a chance to save them. Whatever. You're the only one with body parts that work? I can't believe I said that out loud.
Chelsea: You know what? Don't. And don't even apologize. I don't -- I don't even know why I came here. There's plenty of places that make a weak iced tea.
Max: That -- that iced tea is perfect.
Chelsea: No, I came here because I wanted a friend that I could talk to, somebody that wouldn't let me whine or feel sorry for myself, though I do think you probably could have done that without yelling at me or making me feel stupid.
Max: Right. I'm sorry about that part. It kind of slipped.
Chelsea: You had to get my attention somehow. This is a bitch, Max.
Philip: I asked what you were doing here.
Philip: Do you have any idea what privacy means? Do you think my life is some kind of spectator sport?
Melanie: No, I'll go. I just --
Melanie: Maggie said that -- look, I just -- I want to get tested and see if I'm a match. Okay? I'm sorry. I'll let you go.
Philip: No, no, no. I'm -- I'm sorry.
Melanie: It's okay. I was really weird, too, after my Dad died.
Philip: My Mom's not gonna die.
Melanie: Everything I say comes out wrong. Look, I just want you to know I understand. Okay, I'll leave you alone.
Marlena: So, you've agreed to start therapy, hmm?
John: Well, it's like you said. One step at a time. But that's only if you decide to back off, which I'm sure you will, for my sake. [Cellphone ringing]
John: Excuse me. Oh, I've been expecting this. You two must...have a lot to talk about.
Marlena: You realize this is all a bit of a game to John.
Charlotte: Oh, of course. And you realize that I have manipulated his feelings for you in order to get him into treatment.
Marlena: Oh, of course.
Charlotte: I also realize how smart he is. I get that he knows that we know that he knows and...on and on and on. But he has agreed to meet with me again, and I think that's the first hurdle.
Marlena: You're not as... academic as your father, are you?
Charlotte: [Laughs] Oh, Daddy loved his research. He loved living in his head. For me, if it has no human practical application, then research kind of means nothing. Actually, I'm a lot more like you.
Marlena: As a practical matter, the commute from St. Claire's must be a devil, huh?
Charlotte: Oh, I'm not gonna stay at St. Claire's. I'm leaving. That was my Father's home, not mine. It was a little cold there in his shadow.
Marlena: Going off on your own?
Charlotte: Not exactly, just affiliating with another hospital.
Marlena: Which one?
Maggie: You are still here?
Melanie: Uh, no. Yes.
Melanie: I'm sorry. I just came here from the hospital.
Melanie: You went -- you went grocery shopping. Can I help you -- can I help you carry anything?
Maggie: Well, you can take one bag. How'd it go, Melanie?
Melanie: [Sighs] What does it tell you about your life that you screw up more trying to help other people then when you're just looking after yourself?
Maggie: That you can't try to be nice because of the points it gets you. You try to be nice because you should.
Melanie: [Sighs] If I tell you something, will you -- will you try really hard to believe me?
Melanie: I didn't go there to get points with Philip. I was really trying to help.
Maggie: I do believe you.
Melanie: I just kind of understand what Philip's going through. Stephanie can't. She has both her parents. But she does everything right, and I always do everything wrong. Philip just doesn't...want me around. Maybe -- maybe that's why he gave me all that work, to keep me away from him.
Maggie: Melanie. [Sighs] Philip knows on some level that you've been through something as bad as what he's going through. That might be too hard for him to deal with. You need to leave him be.
Kayla: Oh, hi, baby!
Stephanie: Dad, I got you coffee. Mom, I got us hot chocolate, no whipped cream.
Kayla: Thank you, sweet--
Stephanie: Damn it! Just -- damn it!
Steve: Hey, hey, hey, hey. What's going on?
Kate: [Chuckles] That's kind of hideous.
Daniel: I know. It's garish and commercial.
Kate: Oh, not that bad.
Daniel: Well, more to the point, it was the only one left in the gift shop. And, you know, I decided that we're gonna get into the Christmas spirit.
Kate: Bah, humbug.
Daniel: No, you don't mean that. You know, I think -- I think you're a sap for Christmas, and you're just trying to cover it up.
Kate: Yeah. Yeah, that's me -- heart of gold.
Daniel: No, no, not gold. More like...precious gem. A strong one.
Kate: You know, I think I took a lot of Christmas's for granted. But if I get one more... I'm gonna do it right.
Daniel: You'll have more, Kate... way more than one.
[Knock on door]
Nurse: Dr. Jonas.
Nurse: This just came from the lab.
Daniel: Thank you very much. The results are in.
Kate: I know what I want for Christmas.
Philip: I saw a nurse come in. Anything new?
Daniel: The results are in. I'm gonna go pick them up.
Kate: So, could you call Lucas, tell him to come over?
Philip: Sure. This is gonna be great news. I just know it. [Door closes]
Kate: I hope so.
Lucas: Oh, yay. It's Philip. Hey, what's up?
Philip: Hey, the results are in.
Lucas: All right, I'll be right there.
Chloe: You mean, we'll be right there.
Max: You got to take care of yourself, Chelse.
Chelsea: I know that. I just -- sometimes I forget. [Cellphone ringing]
Chelsea: Do you think that this is it?
Max: There's only one way to find out.
Philip: Hey. I thought you'd want to know. The results are in.
Chelsea: Okay, I'll be right over.
Chelsea: Oh, and, Philip, thank you. Okay, I got to go.
Max: All right. Good luck.
Chelsea: Thank you. We're gonna need it.
Daniel: Well, that wasn't what I was looking for.
Charlotte: Came, actually. My contract started yesterday.
Marlena: Congratulations. It's a wonderful place to work.
Charlotte: My Father's always given it very high marks. And he said you had an awful lot to do with its reputation.
Marlena: Well, I think he may be overestimating me just a bit.
Charlotte: Oh, no. I did a lot of research before I took this position, and everybody seems to agree.
Marlena: Hmm. I know that, personally, I've been dealing with a lot of issues, but I wasn't aware the University was hiring any new people.
Charlotte: They had originally contacted me when my Father was sick, and I couldn't accept the position. Now that he's gone, it kind of seems like the right way to move on.
Marlena: Well... let me know if I can make your transition any easier.
Charlotte: Oh, well, you may regret that offer. I'm sure I'm gonna have a million questions.
John: Oh, I was right. You two do have a lot to talk about.
Marlena: Yes, we do. Dr. Taylor here is joining the staff of University Hospital.
John: Well, I'll be. Are you moving to Salem?
Charlotte: In process, actually. Just temporary digs. My first priority is to get my office up and running.
John: You already have an office?
Charlotte: I do. I do. In fact, Dr. Evans, it's -- it's right next door to yours.
Melanie: Yeah. That's good advice. Leave him be. So, then, I'll just have to work really hard at Titan and prove to him that it wasn't a mistake hiring me.
Maggie: Mm. I'm sure that Philip wouldn't have given you the job if he didn't think you were up to it. Come on. Let's go home. Shall we?
Melanie: Yeah. 'Cause I'm definitely up to the job. But I want to do mine and Stephanie's.
Steve: Come on, baby girl. You're not talking. We know you, and we know when something's wrong. Now, come on. Tell us.
Kayla: Did something happen at school or at work?
Stephanie: No. No.
Kayla: Well, what is it?
Steve: What, you don't like hot chocolate anymore?
Stephanie: [Laughs] It's, um -- it's -- it's Philip.
Kayla: Is he not treating you well at work?
Stephanie: No, um, Kate just went back into the hospital. Her cancer spread.
Kayla: Oh, God. I did not know.
Stephanie: Yeah, he just found out today.
Steve: Poor kid. Poor Kate.
Stephanie: I had to bring him some stuff at the hospital, and the look on his face was just... and then I started to think about how I'd feel if it happened to either of you.
Kayla: Baby girl, come on, you do not need to worry. We are right here, and we're fine.
Stephanie: I know. It's stupid. I just wanted to be with you. I just wanted to see you.
Steve: You're sweet.
Stephanie: You know what's weird, though?
Stephanie: I had to bring him those papers to the hospital for him to sign. And he had just seen his mom, so he was really upset and everything. And then he told me to take the rest of the day off. With everything that's going on, and he's still thinking about somebody else. I just wish there was something I could do for him. He's just a really great guy. I hate to see him in so much pain.
Kayla: It's all right, girl. Ohh.
Steve: You're such a sweet girl. I love you.
Lucas: Hey, hey. How you doing?
Lucas: I got a really good feeling about this, Mom.
Kate: Hey, Chloe.
Lucas: I hope you don't mind that I brought Chloe along.
Kate: No, that's okay. The more the merrier, huh?
Chelsea: Thank you for coming with me. You didn't have to do that.
Max: No. No problem. I'll just wait out here.
Chelsea: You can go. I've got my family, so I'll be okay.
Max: All right. Well, I hope it's great news. I really do.
Chelsea: I know you do. Thank you. Did we hear anything yet?
Kate: We're waiting for Daniel.
Philip: That's weird. I thought I saw him right before I came in.
Chelsea: He wasn't out there just now.
Daniel: I, uh -- I just went back to the lab to double-check something.
Lucas: Do we have a match?
Daniel: Okay, let's just -- let's just take this slow.
Lucas: What do you mean, take it slow. We're waiting on you.
Kate: Is there a match? Is it one of the kids?
Daniel: No. First of all, I didn't just test the family. I told the lab to do a search of the hospital database for previous patients who matched Kate's criteria.
Kate: So, it's -- it's not a family member?
Philip: You found a match, though, right? Who is it?
Daniel: It's Chloe.
Chloe: I wish she didn't know. Hell, I wish I didn't know I was a match.
Rafe: Everything's gonna be fine.
Sami: You have no idea how dangerous Stefano DiMera is.
Stefano: It is not E.J. that wants to talk to you. I do.
Nicole: About what?
Stefano: I think it's time that we both put our cards on the table, don't you?
