Charlotte: The love of your life.
Charlotte: What else? What else do you see, John?
Brady: Is this real? Is Dad getting his memory back?
Kayla: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to startle you.
Marlena: Oh, my.
Kayla: You look so deep in thought.
Kayla: Is something wrong?
John: Am I understanding you right? Are you saying that I should leave Salem, leave my family, and start over someplace else?
Charlotte: It's the only way that you're gonna have peace, John. You're not gonna have any ties to the past so you don't have to try to fit into a community or family that you don't remember. The only question is are you willing to do it? Take this bold step and leave Salem forever?
Melanie: So, what did you want to talk about? Does it have to do with Nick?
E.J.: I suppose, in a way, it does. It has to do with this rather -- this rather extraordinary idea of his -- the alternative-fuels project.
Melanie: So I guess he told you about it.
E.J.: He did, absolutely. He's very proud of it. One of the few positive things in his life right now.
Melanie: Well, I guess he can feel good about something, right?
E.J.: Absolutely. I must say, I find the idea fascinating. It has incredible potential. I was wondering if you could tell me a little bit more about it.
Melanie: Me tell you about it?
E.J.: Sure. You are the go-to person on the project, right?
Melanie: Well, I own the rights to it, yes.
E.J.: Wonderful. So you can tell me everything.
Nicole: Tony! I'm so surprised to see you.
Tony: Well, I do live here, my dear.
Nicole: Yes, but I thought you were on a business trip.
Tony: I was, but I finished up early. Sorry to disappoint.
Nicole: Oh, no. I'm glad you're back.
Tony: Yeah, I can see that.
Nicole: Well, I can imagine you must be tired.
Tony: Not at all. I have to get to the office, in fact.
Nicole: Well, you better get going. Don't let us keep you.
Tony: Oh, there's no rush. First, I'd like to know who your friend is. Aren't you going to introduce us?
Charlotte: John, where are you? Who is with you?
John: She is -- Marlena. She's in trouble. I have to help her.
Brady: Oh, my God. It is real. He remembers. What the hell is this doctor up to?
John: I don't know what to say. I think I'm in shock.
Charlotte: You shock easily.
John: What the hell does that supposed to mean?
Charlotte: You don't need to get defensive.
John: What, am I supposed to be eager about this? Oh, sure. I'll just pull my stakes up and move right out of Salem. In fact, you know, I should call the movers right now, and the post office, fill out all those little change-of-address things.
Charlotte: I do so appreciate your sarcasm.
John: Let me tell you something -- you don't just tell someone out of the blue that they should leave town forever without a damn good reason.
Charlotte: There's a very good reason. And this is not out of the blue. Not at all. I've been thinking about this very seriously since our last session, the hypnosis session.
John: Uh, failed hypnosis session.
Charlotte: Don't blame yourself.
John: Who said I do?
Charlotte: Things didn't go the way we had hoped. It happens.
John: That's comforting.
Charlotte: Very often, amnesia is irreversible.
John: So is leaving your life behind.
Charlotte: Not necessarily.
John: So what are you saying? I should just try this out for a while and test the waters?
Charlotte: No, you should treat this as if it's permanent.
John: [Laughs] Oh, you're amazing. You just throw that out there to me like it's no big deal.
Charlotte: No, but it is a big deal. It is. You're uprooting yourself. You're moving to a new, strange place. Yes, it's gonna be a huge adjustment, but, John, very soon you're gonna meet new people. You're gonna have new memories. You can be your -- your own man, and you'll be accepted for who you are, who you really are.
John: Actually, I do like the sound of that.
Charlotte: I thought you would.
John: But I'm not going solo.
John: If I'm bailing out of here, I'm taking Blondie with me.
Charlotte: No, no, you can't. That's a mistake.
Nicole: Forgive my rudeness. This is Tony -- Antony -- my fiancé's half brother.
Tony: Tony DiMera. Very pleased to meet you. And you are?
Mia: Wait a minute. Did you say DiMera?
Marlena: Nothing's wrong. It's like you said. I'm just lost in thought.
Kayla: Is it about John? Marlena, talk to me. Maybe I can help. Has something changed?
Marlena: I'm concerned. It isn't about John. Actually, it's about his doctor -- Dr. Taylor. I-I just can't figure her out.
John: So, it's, uh -- it's a mistake to want to be with Marlena.
Charlotte: John, I know that you are feeling, um, isolated and that you have a need to connect with something or someone. Marlena will never accept you the way you are now. She's made that very clear.
Charlotte: I'm sorry.
John: That's not very shrink like, using words like that. I mean, I can be negative and pessimistic on my own. Why pay a psychiatrist?
Charlotte: [Chuckles] Well, yes, ordinarily I would never use words like "never." Um, but I do feel that we have grown to trust each other now, and I think I can be honest with you. I can, can't I?
Charlotte: Okay. John, you know that I want to help you, and you know that I will do anything for you if you want to get your ex-wife back if that's what you really want. And now it's time for some straight talk here. You and Marlena -- it's not gonna happen.
Melanie: Well, I don't know what I can tell you, Mr. DiMera. Nick was the brains behind the whole operation. I had nothing to do with it.
E.J.: Really? You're obviously very smart, though. You're very capable. Otherwise, you wouldn't be the point person at Titan, now would you?
Melanie: Exactly. Which is why I'm not at liberty to discuss with outsiders. No offense.
E.J.: None taken. I understand you got a project in development. It's highly classified.
E.J.: You happy there?
Melanie: At Titan?
E.J.: Are they doing well by the project? Are they doing well by you?
Melanie: Why are you asking me this? What are you really after?
Tony: You've heard of us, eh?
Mia: DiMera -- yeah, sounds familiar.
Nicole: Well, I mean, they're a very well-known family here in Salem. I'm sure you've read about them. They're on the board at the hospital, and they contribute a lot of money to really good causes.
Tony: Oh, good causes. That's a way to put it.
Nicole: Well, we really should be going. We're running late, okay? We'll see you later, Tony.
Tony: Oh, wait, wait, wait. You still haven't introduced me to this lovely young lady. I'd like to know who she is.
Nicole: She's a friend, Tony. Am I not allow to have friends over whenever I want?
Tony: Well, of course you are. It's just that I've never seen her around here before, and being that this is my home, I think I have a right to know something about her.
Nicole: Fine. It's not like we're trying to hide anything.
Tony: So, where did you two meet?
Nicole: The youth center. I've been volunteering there, counseling. Well, actually, I've just been talking to pregnant teens.
Tony: Oh, you don't say.
Nicole: Yeah, I've been giving them advice.
Tony: [Chuckles] You?
Nicole: All right, you know what? I know that people think I'm self-consumed. I get that, all right? But I have changed. All because of my own little miracle. Look, if I can help someone in need, it's such a great feeling for me, and what a better way than to help young mothers less fortunate?
Tony: Oh, what a better way indeed. But what are you doing here?
Tony: Well, don't you usually offer these magnanimous services at the actual youth center?
Nicole: Normally, yes, but we've both -- we've bonded with each other, you know -- hanging out, doing mom stuff.
Tony: Ha! Mum stuff.
Nicole: Yeah. You know, roaming around. What, like, you know, doing a little shopping, a little lunch.
Tony: It's lovely. And have you been with the actual youth center long, dear?
Mia: Oh, well, I only just discovered it, but I'm really glad I did. Otherwise, I wouldn't have met Nicole. She's really nice, and she's been really good to me.
Nicole: That's very sweet. Well, I'd hate to chat and run, but we really are running late. Bye.
Kayla: Marlena, as acting chief of staff, I think I need to know about this. If there's a problem with Dr. Taylor --
Marlena: No, I'm just -- I'm not sure that my concerns are even valid.
Kayla: Well, why don't you let me be the judge of that?
Marlena: John has shared some of his therapy with me.
Kayla: Right, you told me that he liked Dr. Taylor and that he was committed to working with her.
Marlena: He is. He was. He's even agreed to hypnotherapy.
Kayla: That's a big step.
Marlena: Yeah. They had their first session, and she put him under successfully, and then she decided that it was useless.
Kayla: She determined that after one session?
Marlena: Unequivocally. She said he would never get his memory back.
Kayla: Well, you're the psychiatrist, but isn't that unorthodox?
Marlena: It is unthinkable. I mean, hypnotherapy -- it's a process. It takes time.
Kayla: Well, I can see your concern.
Marlena: You know, John and I were talking the other day...
Kayla: Go on.
Marlena: Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I believe I saw a difference in John.
Kayla: Different how?
Marlena: I think that the therapy is working. I think that he's about to have a breakthrough.
Kayla: And yet Dr. Taylor was being defeatist.
Marlena: She gave him no hope whatsoever.
Kayla: Well, have you tried talking to her? Telling her your concerns?
Marlena: I have. I left a message and asked her to call me back.
Kayla: Do you think she's avoiding you?
Marlena: I don't know. Well, we [Chuckles] uh, we had a bad moment the other day. I was checking up on her credentials and her history and, um, well, a colleague of hers told me that she had left her last job very abruptly. When I confronted her about it, she got very defensive and said that she had been caring for her dying father.
Kayla: Boy, you'd think the colleague might just mention that.
Marlena: Yeah. Don't you think? Anyway, I don't expect a call back. We're not on the best of terms.
Kayla: Well, I think you only have one thing left that you can do. You got to talk to her face-to-face.
Brady: It's incredible. Marlena's not gonna believe this.
E.J.: [Clears throat] Okay. First, I need your assurance that this conversation is completely off the record.
Melanie: Done. So, what's going on?
E.J.: Look, there's no doubt this fuel project, it's gonna make billions for whichever company brings it to capacity. And that's gonna come down to whoever has the time, effort, and research and, most importantly, the drive and the determination to make this not some pipe dream, but a reality.
Melanie: Gosh, you seem pretty driven yourself, there.
E.J.: I am. But is Titan Enterprises, hmm? Are they making this their number-one priority?
Melanie: Let me ask you a question, Mr. DiMera. Are you making an offer for the project? Is that why you tracked me down?
E.J.: If I did, would you consider it?
Melanie: I already have a deal with Victor Kiriakis.
E.J.: Deals, my dear, can be broken.
Melanie: I don't know. This one seems pretty ironclad.
E.J.: Take my word for it. I can make it so...if you're willing to consider it.
Melanie: To move the project.
E.J.: From Titan Enterprises to my family's company. What do you say?
Charlotte: I'm sorry. I don't have time to chat right now.
Marlena: Well, make time. We have to talk.
Melanie: Look, you seem like a nice guy, excellent lawyer, right? But I don't really know anything about your family's company.
E.J.: Well, surely you've heard of the DiMera family.
Melanie: Yes, but I don't know what it is you do.
E.J.: What we do, my dear, is we make a lot of money for a lot of people.
Melanie: Oh. Yeah, well, you know, that seems noble.
E.J.: It rather depends on your definition of the word "noble."
Melanie: Uh, okay, so, what you're telling me is that you can make me oodles of bucks.
E.J.: My darling, what I'm telling you is that I can make you more money than Victor Kiriakis has ever dreamed of.
Mia: So, that guy Tony, um, he said he lives there?
Nicole: Yeah, uh, he lives there with his wife. I don't know. I never see her much. And, of course, E.J.'s father.
Mia: Is he nice?
Nicole: Yeah. Yeah, he's one of the sweetest, funniest old coot you'll ever meet. He -- he's gonna be a doting grandpa.
Mia: The thought that my baby's gonna have this whole family -- ready-made right?
Nicole: Exactly. One big happy family ready to welcome this little baby into the fold.
Dr. Baker: Nicole.
Nicole: Dr. Baker. It's about time.
Dr. Baker: What are you doing here?
Nicole: Mia invited me here. I mean, since I'm gonna be the baby's mother, she thought it'd be only right that I was here.
Dr. Baker: Does that mean that she knows the truth about you? The whole truth?
Charlotte: I'm sorry I didn't call you back. I've just been really busy.
Marlena: Yes, I know. That's why I thought it might be better to talk in person since we have offices side by side.
Charlotte: What is it this time, Marlena? More questions about my personal life?
Marlena: I never asked you about your personal life.
Charlotte: You asked me why I left my last job, and I explained that it was for personal reasons.
Marlena: This is about a patient.
Charlotte: Right. Yes, you did leave that on your message. Um, I-I just don't understand what would be so urgent.
Marlena: It's about John. I would like to discuss his therapy. I would like to know what you're thinking and what you have in mind.
Melanie: Interesting proposition. I'm flattered you want me -- the project -- my project.
E.J.: Well, you come as a packaged deal, I'm assuming, which is fine, by the way.
Melanie: Yes, thank you. Um, I don't see how I'll benefit switching to the DiMera's, though. I'm happy where I am.
E.J.: Are you sure you can't do better?
Melanie: It can't get any better. Philip is in charge of this project, and he believes in it 100%.
E.J.: Okay. You're certain about that.
Melanie: Yes. We had a meeting with the investors yesterday, and Philip was amazing. We were amazing together. They couldn't have been happier.
E.J.: Oh, I'm sure they were thrilled, you know? Philip's very good at things like that. But I just -- I've known Philip for a little bit longer than you. He's often very enthusiastic about new projects. Always doing for the next big thing, but...he gets bored easily.
Melanie: Well, not this time. He believes in this, and he believes in me. The bottom line, Mr. DiMera, is that I'm happy working with Titan, and I especially like working with Philip. We make a good team. So as rich and as powerful and as driven as your family's company is, I just don't think you can offer me what I want.
E.J.: Melanie, what is it you want?
Melanie: I think I have made myself pretty clear.
E.J.: Well, I would advise you not to be hasty. The DiMera's can offer you a lot and then some. You think it over.
Melanie: Well, I don't think I'll change my mind, but I will of course think about it.
E.J.: Good. Then this conversation stays between the two of us, right?
Melanie: Oh, yes. Mum's the word.
E.J.: Wonderful. It was my pleasure.
Nicole: Yes, Dr. Baker, Mia knows all about how I faked my pregnancy. She knows everything, and she still agreed to give me her baby.
Dr. Baker: Is that true, Mia?
Mia: It is.
Dr. Baker: Are you sure about this? I mean, you've thought --
Nicole: Of course she's sure. She knows how much I want a baby, how much I would love him or her. She has no reservations at all. None.
Mia: Yeah, that's right, Dr. Baker. I don't. Nicole and I have gotten to know each other, and we've had long talks. I know that she can give my baby a better life.
Dr. Baker: Okay. Great. Glad it's got a happy ending.
Nicole: I told you it would.
Dr. Baker: So, are you ready for your ultrasound, Mia?
Mia: We both are. You get to see the baby now.
Nicole: Yeah. I get to see my baby.
Charlotte: What on earth is wrong with you, Marlena?
Marlena: Excuse me?
Charlotte: Here you are, a psychiatrist yourself, and yet you are constantly pumping me for information about my patient. This is outrageous.
Marlena: I see that I've upset you. I'm so sorry. Why don't we get a cup of coffee in the cafeteria?
Charlotte: No, I can't nor do I want to. Tell me what you need to tell me now, here.
Marlena: Okay, fine. Let's go in my office.
Charlotte: You know what? Let's just not do this at all.
Marlena: No, wait. Wait. I should tell you that John has discussed your therapy with me.
Charlotte: What did he say?
Marlena: He said that you are discontinuing the hypnotherapy. He said you told him, in no uncertain terms, that he would never get his memory back. Why would you ever say such a thing?
Charlotte: This is beyond unprofessional. How dare you question my methods or get involved in the treatment of my patients in any way. Are you not familiar? Are you not even aware of the privacy laws?
Marlena: In fact, I am, Charlotte. I remind you, John told me himself about --
Charlotte: And John had no right to do that. He knows better than to open up his mouth to you. [Knock on door]
Kayla: What's going on in here, ladies?
Maggie: I-I can't get over what you did for Nick today. That -- that beautiful speech that you made. I know I've thanked you already, but I just wanted you to know how much that meant to me. That you would -- that you would help him out like that after what happened. I mean, that says a lot about you and about your character.
Melanie: I meant what I said. I do forgive Nick. You know, everything that happened with my Dad and with me, it was because he was taking those pills. They -- they made him crazy.
Maggie: Yeah. Well, my nephew -- he's -- he's a very kind and gentle soul. So I just pray that when he comes back to us, that he -- he'll be able to find his way again.
Melanie: Well, he will if you're helping him. You can always get people to find their way. It's funny. I just feel when you're around, that everything is gonna be okay.
Maggie: Really? I make you feel that way?
Melanie: Yeah. Yeah, you do.
Maggie: Well...that -- that does my heart good.
Melanie: Anyway, I wasn't the only one that helped him out. You know, he had a good lawyer, too.
Maggie: Oh, yeah. Yeah, E.J.'s capable. I-I will give him that.
Melanie: He's a very interesting character.
Maggie: Okay, that's one way of describing him. [Chuckles]
Melanie: So, what are some other ways? You know, what else do you know about him?
E.J.: Tony. Have you seen Nicole?
Tony: Oh, yeah, she was here, but then she took off.
Tony: Oh, with one very pregnant teenager.
E.J.: Really? Who was she?
Tony: Oh, someone she just met at the youth center.
E.J.: The youth center.
Tony: Yes, where she's volunteering.
E.J.: [Laughing] Where she's volunteering. My goodness.
Tony: You didn't know?
E.J.: No. No, I did not know.
Tony: Well, that's odd, isn't it? I mean, that she wouldn't have told you about it.
E.J.: So what else did she say about this youth center, Tony?
Tony: Oh, that she talks to unwed mothers, counseling of some such.
E.J.: I see, so why did she bring the girl back here?
Tony: I don't know. She didn't tell me. She was evasive. She said that they were hanging -- I think that's the word she said. You know, mum stuff.
E.J.: Oh. And what do you think?
Tony: Well, as I said, it's odd hanging with a pregnant teenager, bringing her to the house here. Hmm. But I don't want to incite you because you have a lot on your mind. And I must get to work.
E.J.: No, Tony, I'm sure that you would never want to incite me, but, um...what do you think?
Tony: Same thing you're thinking, little brother. Something is up.
Dr. Baker: It's a girl.
Nicole: Oh, God. You know, I was hoping, but I didn't want to. You know, I-I lost -- I lost my baby girl, and now I feel like I found her again. Oh, honey, are you okay?
Mia: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. It's just, um...I always wanted a little girl, too.
Dr. Baker: It's natural to have second thoughts, Mia.
Nicole: What? No, don't say that.
Dr. Baker: Nicole...it's her baby. If she wants to keep her, it's her God-given right.
Nicole: You're putting ideas into her head. You're doing that on purpose.
Dr. Baker: Mia, if you still want to keep your daughter...
Nicole: Mia, please, say something.
Mia: I wish I could keep my baby, but I know what's best for her. That's not me. It's Nicole.
Nicole: You'll never once regret this, Mia. I promise. Your little girl will have the best of everything always.
Mia: If I wasn't sure of that, I wouldn't be doing this.
Nicole: So, Dr. Baker, when exactly is the baby due?
Dr. Baker: It's hard to say when exactly, but another week at the earliest.
Mia: And she looks healthy? Everything's good?
Dr. Baker: She looks perfect. I don't anticipate any problems. I just [Clears throat] look forward to this whole episode being over.
Nicole: Well, I'll miss you, too, Dr. Baker. You've been a heck of a guy.
Dr. Baker: Mm-hmm. You take care. You call me the minute anything happens.
Mia: I will. Thanks, Dr. Baker.
Dr. Baker: Okay. Thank you.
Nicole: So, uh, I guess we have some time before she's born.
Mia: Yeah, about a week.
Nicole: Mm-hmm, enough to make a plan.
Mia: "A plan"?
Nicole: Well, E.J. thinks I'm pregnant, right? And when you go into labor, I have to go away and then come back with a baby, so I have to give birth someplace else.
Mia: How are you gonna do that?
Nicole: I'll find a way.
Kayla: I think we need to talk about this.
Charlotte: Yeah, you're damn right we do. I'm gonna be reporting Dr. Evans to the psychiatric board just for starters. It's obvious that she can't control herself and she can't stay out of this man's business.
Kayla: You need to calm down.
Charlotte: "Calm down"? Would you be calm is somebody was trying to undermine your career? I really should get a restraining order against her.
Kayla: Okay, I want you both in my office now.
Charlotte: You know, this really isn't necessary. Um... I-I'm sorry. I apologize. I over-reacted.
Marlena: You? No.
Charlotte: I get very protective of my patients, and I tend to get a little incensed when I feel that their privacy has been violated. Still, no excuse for my behavior, and...again, I apologize. So if you pardon me.
Maggie: Um, Melanie, E.J. is engaged, and his fiancé© is pregnant. You do know that.
Melanie: Oh, no, no, no. No, please. I'm not interested in him like that. I was just thinking, you know, now that I own the rights to the project, I might want an attorney in case anything legal comes up between me and Titan and if, you know, of course if Mickey's not available to help.
Maggie: Mm-hmm. So, like I said before, he's a good lawyer. I mean, Mickey wouldn't have hired him if he weren't.
Melanie: Why do I feel like there's a but coming?
Maggie: [Chuckles] Okay. My advice -- stay on your guard. As charming as E.J. can be, you should never forget...E.J. is a DiMera.
E.J.: So, who was this person? What was her name?
Tony: Oh, Nicole never told me. Nor did the girl introduce herself.
E.J.: Did they tell you were they were going?
Tony: No, but wherever they were going, they were very much in a hurry -- Nicole and her little pregnant friend. She couldn't be more than 16 years old.
E.J.: She's changed, Tony.
E.J.: Pregnancy -- it's changed her.
Tony: I'm sorry. I don't follow where you're going with this.
E.J.: Tony, she's -she's more sensitive. She's kinder. Since she's been carrying this baby, she's -- she's just softer.
Tony: So you say. So you do believe that she's doing volunteer work at the youth center.
Tony: And that she hadn't told you because what, that you'd be appalled? "Oh, no. I wouldn't think of you helping others. I'd be offended. No, I wouldn't even think about it."
E.J.: It's got nothing to do with me approving or not approving. She probably just hasn't gotten around to telling me yet.
Tony: Oh, yes. Well, that explains it all.
E.J.: Look, I've been extremely busy.
Tony: Yes, of course.
E.J.: Tony...I believe what she told you.
Tony: Yes. Of course you do. Bless your kind, trusting soul.
Nicole: Oh, hi, honey. You're home early. How was your day?
E.J.: It was okay. How was yours?
Nicole: It was fine. I'm gonna go rustle something up from the kitchen.
E.J.: Aren't you going to tell me?
Nicole: Tell you...
E.J.: That you volunteer at a youth center for pregnant teens. And why I have to find that out from Tony.
Kayla: John. Good to see you.
John: Shouldn't you be at the hospital?
Kayla: Well, I do take breaks once in a while.
John: That's right.
Kayla: And I needed one today...badly.
John: Rough day?
Kayla: Ah, thank you. You know, um, I ran into your therapist a little while ago.
John: Dr. Charlotte Taylor?
Kayla: Mm-hmm. Her behavior concerns me.
John: And why would you say that? What's the problem?
Kayla: I don't trust her, John, and neither should you.
Charlotte: What the hell? Something's not right. No, no. Somebody's been using this computer. They've seen John's video. They've s--
[Door unlocks, opens]
Brady: Thank God you're here.
Marlena: What were you doing in Charlotte's office today? Do you know how dangerous that is? What if she had walked in and seen you?
Brady: I know. Listen, listen. You have got to see this, okay? I found the hypnotherapy video with Dad on her computer. I e-mailed it to you.
Marlena: Oh, my gosh! You what? Brady, Brady, do you have any idea --
Brady: You have got to see this.
Charlotte: John, tell me what you see?
John: Love of my life. It's Marlena.
Rafe: Your life, my life, and your baby's life -- they all depend on it.
Man: Show me where they're hiding, the one who's gonna die tonight.
Nicole: I've been keeping something from you.
Brady: Charlotte Taylor's been messing with my Dad's head, and you damn well better believe she's gonna pay.
