Victor: So, you're never wrong, is that it? Now you're infallible. And what am I, some doddering old fool who makes you feel bad about yourself?
Philip: No, I got one thing wrong. I actually thought this was the right job for me, that I could make a difference, that I could make you proud.
Victor: You could if you used your head.
Philip: [Sighs] No. No, that's not what this is about. This is about you wanting me to fail. You get some perverse kick out of humiliating me, insulting me.
Victor: Are you done?
Philip: Yeah. Yeah, I am done, with you, with Titan, with the job. I quit.
Victor: You're quitting, just like that, huh? Something doesn't go your way, just give it up, pack it in. That's always been your M.O., hasn't it, Philip?
Philip: If you don't trust me to run the company, then why did you put me in charge in the first place?
Victor: 'Cause I thought you could handle it. But in one reckless decision, you've proven me wrong. So I'm gonna have to make other arrangements about the future of this company.
Philip: [Chuckles uneasily]
Melanie: Problem, Steph?
Stephanie: What, are you following me?
Melanie: Actually, I try and do my best to avoid you, but you keep doing that bad penny thing.
Stephanie: You have no conscience, do you? Philip tried to help you, and all you did was turn your back on him.
Melanie: 'Tis the season, bitch.
Daniel: Lydia, where's our patient?
Lydia: Haven't you heard? Miss Lane's fiancÚ came to take her home tonight.
Daniel: I've been in surgery. I guess the attending must have discharged her.
Lucas: Hey, hey. How you doing? You staying warm?
Chloe: Perfect. I am so glad that Maggie and Mickey have this place winterized.
Lucas: Yeah, me too. Once our dream house is renovated, we won't be spending that much time here anymore, you know?
Chloe: Aw, well, at least on the weekends?
Lucas: Well, we might for Allie. She spent so much time here. She's probably used to it, you know?
Chloe: Well, no one would miss it more than me.
Lucas: That's right. This is where we found each other.
Chloe: Yeah. Mmm. So, when's your meeting?
Lucas: Um, it's in a little while, but I got to leave in a few minutes. Hearth and home investors or else I'd cancel. You gonna be okay?
Chloe: I'm fine. Lucas, you can stop doting on me.
Lucas: Doting on you -- I'm not allowed to? I'm not allowed to praise you? What am I allowed to do?
Chloe: Oh, I could think of a few things.
Lucas: Just a few things?
Lucas: Mmm. No, we got to stop, or else I'll never be able to get out of here.
Chloe: I like that idea.
Lucas: I know, but duty calls, so I can't get too busy with you right now. Aunt Maggie's on her way, anyway, to pick up Allie.
Chloe: I could have watched her, you know.
Lucas: Well, I wanted us to have some time alone. Maybe we could take a drive to Chicago to check out the Christmas lights.
Chloe: Nice! You won't be too tired after your meeting?
Lucas: [Scoffs] Too tired for you? Never. No way. I'll be fine.
Chloe: Well, you'd better hurry up, or you're gonna be late.
Lucas: I will. It'll be the fastest meeting ever. I promise.
Nicole: Thank you.
E.J.: Look, I'm really sorry if I haven't been clear. The last thing I want is for you to worry. I'll say this again. You and the baby mean the world to me.
E.J.: Nicole, I'm -- I'm fed up with us sleeping in separate bedrooms. I love you, and I would like to hold you in my arms all night long.
Nicole: You know we can't.
E.J.: That's okay. Okay. It's not okay, but, honey, I've made the adjustment. I told you I'm very patient. I just want to know what it's like to lie beside you and our baby every night.
Nicole: No, we can't.
Rafe: No, tell Hilda she can take the holidays off. No, I don't mind at all. Well, because I don't think it would be smart for me to leave. The killer could trail me, and then I'd be putting the witness at serious risk. [Chuckles] No, sir. I don't mind at all. [Chuckles] Thank you, sir. Happy holidays to you, too.
Rafe: Sami?! Sami?! Sami. Oh, my God. Sami? Sami? Sami, wake up.
E.J.: Wait a second. What do you mean, no? Y-y-you don't want me in your bed?
Nicole: That's not what I'm saying. I just -- you can't just come in here looking like some chiseled God and expect me to fall down at your feet, especially since I'm -- I'm not sure if you have my best interests at heart, or the baby's.
E.J.: This had better not be about that trust fund.
Nicole: How can I offer a place in my bed to a man who won't trust me with seed money for our child's future?
E.J.: [Sighs deeply] Nicole, I was extremely clear. There is money that is being put aside for our son or daughter's future. And as for yourself, you're completely taken care of. You don't have to worry about anything. Look, sweetheart, I just told you that I love you, yes?
E.J.: All right, does that not amount to anything for you?
Nicole: No, I've just been burned so many times. Look, E.J., I have made up my mind, okay? I am not sharing my bed or my life with you, not until this issue is resolved.
Rafe: Easy. You sure that you're all right?
Sami: Yeah, I think so.
Rafe: I should call the doctor.
Sami: No, I'm fine, Rafe. You don't have to --
Rafe: What -- what -- what is it now? What is it?
Sami: [Gasping] I don't know. I think it's the baby.
Lucas: Mmm. I'll be back soon.
Chloe: Okay. Don't worry about me. Just have a good meeting.
Lucas: All right, you. Call me if you need anything, all right? Okay? Aunt Maggie, perfect timing.
Maggie: How's Chloe?
Lucas: She's good. Yeah, she's doing fine.
Maggie: She's a real trooper.
Lucas: Yeah, she is. And thank you for taking Allie. I appreciate it.
Maggie: Don't you dare thank me! You're doing me a favor 'cause she's gonna help Ciara and me make cookies for Alice's Christmas Eve party.
Lucas: Oh, good. She can sit in her high chair and lick the spoon.
Maggie: [Laughs] She probably will, too. No, that's okay.
Lucas: You guys have fun. I got to go. Good seeing you.
Maggie: All right. You take care. Bye, sweetie. Well, hi, there. Lucas tells me you're doing well.
Chloe: Yeah, I feel great. Thanks.
Maggie: Well, I'm so glad for you and for Kate. You did a wonderful thing, Chloe.
Chloe: Well, I just hope that Kate's cancer goes into remission and that she makes a full recovery.
Maggie: Mm. Well, that's what we're all praying for. Oh, wow. Wow. Look at this place. [Sighs] Brings back such wonderful memories.
Chloe: Yeah, we're really enjoying it -- this cabin, the island. They're very special to us.
Maggie: Mickey and I said this was the perfect getaway. I mean, it's like,
um... time -- time just stands still when you're here. I mean, there's no worry
about work or what's going on in the world. And all you focus on is the person
you love. Hmm. That's what's most important, after all.
Daniel: Hey. I didn't mean to wake you.
Kate: No, you didn't. I was just resting my eyes. Don't tell me you're still working.
Daniel: No, I just finished my shift, came in to say good night, see how you're feeling.
Kate: Well, I don't know. I don't think I'm ready to deck the halls yet, but I'm hanging in there.
Daniel: Well, we want you to be well in time for Christmas.
Kate: Yeah. I'm so looking forward to Christmas. It's not just because I'm grateful to be here but I'm gonna be able to be with my family and you.
Philip: Oh, that's fine, dad. Go ahead. Make your plans. Do what you got to do.
Victor: Don't take that tone with me.
Philip: What tone?! You said you were gonna proceed without me. I'm just giving you my blessing.
Victor: You quit your job. What am I supposed to do, beg you to stay? Do you even have any idea why I have to proceed without you? Have you at least admitted to yourself how you've blown this?
Philip: I admit I've made some mistakes, okay? But every decision I've made was in the best interest of the company.
Victor: You passed on a project that could be the next billion-dollar industry. Kiriakis Titan could license this all over the world, making untold amounts of money.
Philip: I'll say it again. Melanie Layton is not a person I can do business with. She's a liar, she's a sneak, a completely dishonorable human being. And if you were a decent judge of character, you'd see that.
Victor: What a shame. My son -- a Kiriakis -- not only ready to sacrifice his own job but his whole company all because some woman got under his skin.
Stephanie: Get out.
Melanie: Yeah, right. Like I take orders from you.
Stephanie: You don't work here anymore, remember? Philip fired you.
Melanie: News flash. Sweetie, I don't think Victor wants me to go, so you should probably step in line and start showing me some respect.
Stephanie: Or what?
Melanie: Well, let's see. I've managed to oust you from my brother's life. And it is only a matter of time before I figure out a way to do the same with you and Philip.
E.J.: Nicole, I've created a trust fund for our child, and I've agreed to provide for you. If that isn't resolution enough, I have no idea what is.
Nicole: E.J., I know you love me. I do. But at the end of the day, I'm just another DiMera possession, just a-A... a baby mama. And that is so offensive and hurtful.
E.J.: There's no talking to you right now. You're in a very bizarre frame of mind. I'm going to bed. Alone. [Door slams]
Rafe: All right, Dr. Abbot wants to know if the baby's still moving.
Sami: Um, yeah. Yeah, actually, right now. Here.
Rafe: What, did he just kick?
Sami: Yeah. It was a strong one.
Rafe: Yeah, it was. He was doing karate in there or something. I never felt anything like that before.
Rafe: Uh, yeah, doctor, the baby is definitely still moving. He just kicked. Okay. Okay, thank you, doctor. Okay, uh, doctor says, obviously, since he's not here to examine you, he can't be 100% sure. But since the baby is moving and there's no bleeding or any unusual symptoms --
Sami: No, there aren't.
Rafe: Yeah. Then the cramping is probably just stress related. But, hey, I mean, what the hell is there to be stressed about, right? I mean, just because I got stabbed last night, and now the killer knows how I am --
Sami: Stop it, okay? You can't put this on yourself.
Rafe: And what if you had needed some sort of urgent medical care or to have seen someone?
Sami: I don't, right? The doctor said I'm fine. You have to stop worrying. Why aren't you saying anything?
Rafe: There's no way around this. I have to resign.
Sami: No. No way. I'm not gonna let you.
Philip: How is Melanie under my skin? I can't stand her. She drives me crazy. She drives everyone crazy.
Victor: And yet you scrapped a very important project because of her.
Philip: What the -- you think I did this be-- I scrapped the project because she's bad news, she's trouble, and I don't want any part of it.
Victor: Women have always clouded your judgment.
Philip: Oh, for God's sake.
Victor: We can start with that trollop Chloe Lane, if you'd like, and go from there.
Philip: Don't bother. I no longer work for you. So I no longer have to listen to you.
Stephanie: So much for goodwill toward men.
Melanie: Oh, I've got goodwill to burn, girlfriend. That's why I'm trying so hard to get Nick's project off the ground. Not only will it benefit Titan, but millions of people all over the world.
Stephanie: No, it'll benefit you, girlfriend, which is all you give a rat's behind about.
Philip: Hey, what's going on? I thought you were waiting for me at the pub.
Stephanie: I was until I found out what she'd done -- going to Victor behind you.
Melanie: Hey, I just ran into your dad. He was the one who was interested in the project 'cause I, of course, knew he would be.
Philip: Save it, Melanie. Tell someone who cares. Let's get out of here.
Victor: Melanie, can I have a word with you?
Rafe: Yeah, uh, it's not your call, Sami.
Sami: Well, I should at least have a say, shouldn't I? I mean, I'm the one you're protecting. I heard you tell your supervisor that you thought it would put me in even more jeopardy if you left and then the killer could track you, right?
Rafe: Oh, great, so you were eavesdropping.
Sami: Sort of. Right before I slipped and fell. And, look, when I heard you say that, it made me feel relieved. So, what, what happened to sticking it out?
Rafe: I got sentimental about Christmas, okay? If you must know. It just didn't feel right for me to leave. I know this is a tough time for you, not being with your kids and all.
Sami: Well, it isn't right for you to leave.
Rafe: Yeah, w-- but I cannot let these -- these feelings get in the way. Don't you get it? It's about your safety and the baby's, and I need to be objective.
Sami: You need to make up your mind, Agent Indecisive.
Rafe: No, I-- I am not indecisive. In fact, I'm gonna call my friend, the one I told you about.
Sami: I don't want your friend. I want you.
Nicole: Ugh. Dr. Baker. I can't deal with you right now. I don't have your 750 grand. I don't have a baby. But I do have E.J. Sort of. And that's worth more than all the money in the world. I know what I have to do, and I better do it soon. Ugh.
E.J.: Nicole, what the devil is going on with you?
Nicole: You really want to know? What's going on is I'm afraid if I let you get too close, you'll find out the truth, and I'll lose you for good.
Chloe: I know what you mean, Maggie. This place -- it holds so many special memories for Lucas and me, especially me.
Maggie: And why is that?
Chloe: Well, this is kind of where I found myself again. After everything that happened with Brady and then with Philip, I was pretty much a wreck. And I didn't think that I could love again.
Maggie: But Lucas changed all that?
Maggie: Hmm. Well, you make my nephew very happy.
Chloe: That's my goal.
Maggie: I just have one question.
Maggie: Does he make you happy? I mean, can you truly see yourself spending the rest of your life with him?
Daniel: Since I'm off duty and you're already awake, thanks to me, maybe we could just hang out a little bit, watch a movie, thumb wrestle. [Both laugh]
Kate: Actually, there's something that I want you to do for me, as a favor.
Daniel: Name it. What in the world? You got me a necklace? No, you shouldn't have. Really, Kate.
Kate: Stop. It's for Chloe.
Kate: I want you to take it and drop it off at the Horton cabin. Could you do that for me? It's important.
Sami: You know what I mean. I want you to protect me. I don't want to get to know some stranger. I mean, come on. Like, I-I know you. Sort of. And at least I'm comfortable with you.
Sami: What's so funny?
Rafe: Ah, no. It's just it's funny. 'Cause there was a time, actually, not so long ago that you hated me. In fact, you would have been thrilled to see me go.
Sami: I never said I hated you. I just thought you were an arrogant jerk. Hey, it's not like you liked me, either.
Rafe: That's for sure. I thought you were a spoiled brat.
Sami: See? We were both wrong. All right, we were both right. I'm a spoiled brat, and you're exactly the right arrogant jerk to keep me in line.
Rafe: [Sighs] All right. But you need to brace yourself, okay, because sooner or later, I am going to have to go.
Sami: All right, fine. Well, hopefully by that point, they will have caught the killer, and then we can both go and do whatever we want with our lives.
Sami: Let's not talk about it anymore, all right? You need to sit down. And so do I. And we should probably just relax and maybe make some tea and we c-- could...
Rafe: Hey, are you all right?
Rafe: Are you okay?
Sami: Yeah, no, I just -- I don't feel so hot.
Rafe: What is it? Is it the cramping again?
Sami: No. No, it's not. I just -- I feel kind of light-headed, dizzy.
Rafe: Okay, just relax, okay? Relax. Let me take care of you.
E.J.: Okay, well, I'm listening, so what do you want to tell me?
Nicole: It's about the baby. She, or he is driving me crazy. I mean, I don't know why else I would be acting so irrational and paranoid. But I'm afraid if I keep doing it that I'm going to lose you. I am so sorry, E.J.
E.J.: Wait a second. You don't need to apologize.
Nicole: Yes, I do. I do because I am making you miserable, and it is not fair. And you don't deserve it, and I don't deserve you.
E.J.: Don't say that, please.
Nicole: Look, all my life, I have wanted a man like you -- strong, sweet, giving. But no man has ever wanted me like that, not for a long time, anyway. And now it's just a matter of time before I --
E.J.: All right, stop. All right, just stop, Nicole. So you've had a few bad relationships. I think we've all had a few bad relationships. But I think this one can be different. I mean, it certainly is for me. I have never felt as close to somebody as I do to you. When I'm away from you, I feel lonely. And when I'm with you, I feel like the sun just came up. It's a little bit corny, but it's true.
Nicole: God, I feel the same way.
E.J.: Okay. Then I need you to promise me that you're gonna stop worrying and believe me when I tell you I'm always gonna look after you and our child. Come here, silly.
E.J.: Wait a second. Wow, that feels different.
Daniel: Well, I still don't understand why you don't want to just give it to her in person.
Kate: Okay. Look, Lucas' father, Bill Horton, gave that necklace to me many years ago on Christmas Eve. And I've always intended to give it to Lucas' wife or someone special in his life on that same night. But that woman has really never been in Lucas' life until now.
Daniel: Hmm. Well, I'll, uh -- I guess I'd better call up there first. I don't want to disturb them.
Kate: No, you don't have to do that because Lucas is taking Chloe to Chicago to see the Christmas lights. So, I know where the spare key is. All you have to do is slip in there and make like Santa and leave it under the tree.
Daniel: Well, consider it done.
Kate: Thank you.
Daniel: You're welcome.
Chloe: Maggie, would your reservations have anything to do with that talk that we had when I first started seeing Lucas?
Maggie: I asked you if you were on the rebound, and you said no. I believe you.
Chloe: You also asked me not to hurt him, and I haven't. Nor do I plan to.
Maggie: Good. I mean, he's been hurt so many times. None of us want to see him get hurt again.
Chloe: Lucas is the best man that I know -- honest and loving. And I just feel so safe with him. He's the right person for me. I know that.
Maggie: Thank you. Thank you for putting my mind at ease.
Chloe: And thank you for caring so much about my future husband.
Maggie: [Laughs] Oh, okay. Oh, goodness. I have to get Allie and run because we have a cookie-baking date with Ciara.
Philip: The old man thinks he can do better? Let him.
Stephanie: Philip, you're the one who quit. Why? Why did you do that?
Philip: He insulted me. And what?! It pissed me off!
Stephanie: Well, as long as you have a good reason.
Philip: He gives me the business, claims he's giving it to me carte blanche, and then he questions my decisions. What is that about?
Stephanie: You tend to be a little impulsive. All I'm saying is... maybe you should take your own advice. You told me that the first rule of business is to never let emotion guide a deal. And you let your emotion think for you twice today.
Philip: You're right. Maybe it was a little hasty throwing out the project. But it wasn't just for Titan's sake.
Stephanie: Oh, I can handle Melanie.
Philip: I know you can. But I can't.
Stephanie: Okay, uh, forget about her. What you need to do right now is focus on smoothing things over with your father, getting your job back.
Philip: I'm not sure he'll give me my job back.
Stephanie: Philip, he's your dad. He believes in you. Otherwise, he never would have given you titan to begin with. He'll forgive you.
Philip: Maybe. But even if I do get my job back, I know him. He'll find some way to punish me.
Melanie: Thank you, Mr. Kiriakis. I just came back to clean out my desk and pick out my Christmas ham. Thank you for that, by the way.
Victor: Have a seat, Melanie.
Melanie: What's this about?
Victor: I've made a decision. Kiriakis Titan will be delighted to pick up the option on Nick Fallon -- on your fuel project. And as the majority shareholder, I'll do everything in my power to see to it that you're happy.
Melanie: Wonderful. And I will be, as long as your son is running things.
Victor: Philip is no longer a part of this organization. I trust that won't affect our deal.
Melanie: Actually, it kind of does.
Lucas: Hey, honey, it's me. How are you?
Chloe: Hey, I'm good. Excited about our trip to Chicago. What about you? How was the meeting?
Lucas: It was good, except for my car broke down on the way home, and I'm stranded out by the pier.
Chloe: Oh, no.
Lucas: Yeah, and to top it off, my cellphone went dead, and I had to make this call on a pay phone.
Chloe: You're kidding. Well, can I help you, make some calls for you?
Lucas: No, no, that's all right. Tow truck's gonna be here in about 30 minutes or an hour or so. I should be fine.
Chloe: I'm so sorry, honey.
Lucas: Yeah, so am I. I guess I'll just see you when I can, all right?
Chloe: Okay. Well, good luck with the tow truck. I'll pray that they get there fast.
Lucas: Uh, Chloe, one more thing.
Lucas: I love you.
Chloe: I love you, too. Hmm. Maybe I'll let Lucas unwrap one of his presents early.
Daniel: Gone. Good. I'll try to find this key.
Victor: This is business, Melanie. Kiriakis Titan is hardly a one-man operation. Philip's absence from here will not affect our dealings in any way. [Cellphone ringing] I should get take this in private.
Melanie: Of course. I'll catch you later.
Victor: We'll talk very soon. Yes, Philip, what is it?
Philip: I'm calling to apologize. I was...insolent and disrespectful. Nothing new there, right? I want my job back, if you still want me.
Victor: I'll take you back, Philip. But if you ever lose your objectivity again...
Philip: I won't. And you need to know that I have to do this my way. You have to trust me. No more stepping in when I'm making my decisions.
Nicole: I can explain.
Nicole: The way it feels.
E.J.: Nicole, the only feeling that I got was that it's getting bigger. Our baby's growing. That's supposed to happen, right?
Nicole: Yes. Yes, o-o-of course. That's what I was gonna explain. Part of it, anyway. It's just I've been eating so much, and I've gained so much weight.
E.J.: Oh, Nicole, be quiet. You look beautiful. Come here. Now, do you think that maybe -- maybe you could reconsider spending the night in your bed?
Nicole: I-I really should listen to Dr. Baker.
E.J.: Nicole, I understand why we can't make love. I get that.
Nicole: It's just that he thinks it's important that I get a lot of sleep, you know? And lately, I've -- I've had these night sweats. And I feel very uncomfortable. And besides, having you close to me and not being able to make love, that alone will keep me awake at night, the frustration. But please, just understand this, okay? This isn't gonna be for long. And once the baby's born, we'll have our whole life to lie in bed together. And not just cuddle.
Rafe: Feeling better?
Sami: Yeah. Yeah, I'm just so glad that the baby's okay. I mean, if anything happened...
Rafe: You know, when I see all that you've done -- are doing to protect him...
Sami: I know you hate it when I bring this up...
Sami: I just can't help thinking about... E.J. And -- and how he's not gonna be a part of this baby's life. And is it really fair for me to keep the baby a secret? And can I even keep it a secret forever? I mean...
Rafe: It sounds like you're changing your mind.
Victor: I know it's late, but there's something we need to discuss. It concerns the future of Titan.
Stephanie: How'd it go? What did your dad say?
Philip: I got my job back.
Stephanie: That's great! See? I told you he didn't want to lose you.
Philip: We still have a lot more issues to work out.
Stephanie: And you will when you stop being such a hothead.
Philip: [Laughs] When you're right, you're right. I'll work on that.
Stephanie: In the meantime, look where we're standing.
Philip: What? Mistletoe.
Stephanie: So, no idea what that means, huh?
Philip: It has a meaning?
Stephanie: Do I have to teach you everything?
Philip: Mm-hmm. [Chuckles]
Melanie: Well, enjoy the mistletoe, Stephanie, 'cause pretty soon, you're gonna be the ghost of Christmas past.
Lucas: Damn it, where the hell is this tow-truck guy? Come on, man.
Chloe: Merry Christmas early. I hope you're ready to unwrap your --
Sami: No way. I am not changing my mind because of E.J. and who he is and who his father is. He can never find out about this baby.
Rafe: And that makes you sad.
Sami: Why wouldn't it?
Nicole: Mmm. You know, wait, wait. What are we doing? God, we got to stop.
E.J.: Okay. I will go and get us some ice cream -- how about that -- so we can both cool down a little bit and maintain an adequate buffer between the two of us so we don't get into any trouble?
Nicole: Great. [Giggles] Oh, that was close. Oh, God. That sales lady wasn't kidding when she said this thing was realistic. [Sighs] [Scoffs] And as for you... unless you're gonna help me with immaculate conception, no more scares like that, okay?
Nicole: What? At this hour? [Scoffs] Anyone gonna get that? Oh, my God. It's you.
Dr. Baker: I left you a message. You didn't return my call.
Nicole: I was going to. You didn't have to drive all the way to my house.
Dr. Baker: I need to know if you got the money.
E.J.: Darling, who's at the door?
Nicole: I am working on it. Three quarters of a million dollars is kind of a lot of money. I need a little more time.
Dr. Baker: How much is a little time?
Nicole: I don't know. I'll give you an answer tomorrow.
Dr. Baker: Not good enough. I need an answer now.
Kate: And now it's just you and me. What is up with you and Max?
Nicole: I deserve to be a mother!
Dr. Baker: You'll have to find someone else to play this charade with you.
Chloe: Leave me alone!
Daniel: I'm trying to leave you alone!
Lucas: What's going on in here?!
