[Knock at door]
Victor: Well, Hope...
Victor: Nice to have you home again.
Hope: Thank you. I...
Victor: Is Ciara here?
Hope: No, she's with my dad and Julie.
Victor: Oh. What's all this? Are you going somewhere?
Hope: Bo didn't tell you? Ciara and I are moving out of the house.
Arianna: Yes, can you please just leave me alone about Brady? Okay, I don't want to feel pressured, all right? Yes, I will decide when I am ready to decide. Look, don't you think, if Victor Kiriakis told Brady that I was really a dealer, I might have clued you in? Okay, if it comes to that, yes, I'm gonna defend myself. [Sighs] Look, um, don't worry, okay? Just--I'll talk to you soon. All right? Good-bye.
Arianna: Is someone there?
Stefano: If it's possible, I would very much like to see Theo and Giovanni and my darling little Sydney. And, of course, Nicole.
Lexie: Uh, father, look, I'm not sure the children will be able to...
Stefano: Yes, yes, yes, yes. I understand. It's much too late. But, still, I want to speak to Nicole, so, Elvis, please call her, tell her to come.
EJ: Father, actually, Nicole has...
Stefano: Nicole what? What--what's going on? Now she's your wife. Where is she?
EJ: [Sighs] I don't know where she is, father. To be completely honest, I don't give a damn.
Nicole: Oh. Yes. It's about time the ball bounced our way, huh, sweetheart? Okay, mommy's just gonna get your passport, and then we'll get as far away from here as we can.
Kate: [Screams] Oh, dear God, you scared the hell out of me.
Kate: How dare you come in here unannounced?
Nicole: But I was just...
Kate: You need to go. Now.
Will: Okay, you don't have to be nervous. Okay? Uncle Mickey wouldn't have recommended Justin if he wasn't a great lawyer. Look, just breathe.
Mia: Right. [Exhales] Breathing's always good.
Will: Mia, look at me. Justin's gonna make sure Chad can't take away your right to decide what happens to Sydney.
Chad: You're hired. Just show me where to sign.
Stefano: You don't know where Nicole is? I mean, she's your wife. Why in the world would you not know where she is?
EJ: Father, please, come on. Let's just not get too worked up about this right now, okay?
Stefano: Please, no, just do not patronize me. All right? What is going on?
EJ: Look, I know this is gonna be hard... for you to hear, father, but... while you were ill, it was revealed to us that Nicole had perpetrated a horrible lie against our family.
Lexie: Okay, enough, enough. We can't have him getting upset.
Stefano: All right, all right, all right, that's enough. All right, please, let him finish, all right, Alexandra? I'm not gonna be kept in the dark anymore, all right? So what lie and what did Nicole do?
EJ: I learned that she, um, she had a miscarriage. She lost...our baby. And she faked her pregnancy. She adopted another child from that criminal, Dr. Baker.
Stefano: Oh, my God. I-- how did--how did this all come to light?
EJ: I really--I don't want to get into the details right now. Suffice it to say that she admitted it--everything, the lies, the deception, the whole thing.
Stefano: When you found out, what did you do?
EJ: What do you think I did? I kicked her to the bloody curb.
Stefano: And where is little Sydney now?
EJ: She's with her mother.
Stefano: Oh, dio mío. She is with Sami?
Brady: Ari? Ar--
Arianna: Oh, my goodness.
Brady: What are you doing? How you doing? Surprise.
Arianna: Surprise. My God. How'd you get up here?
Brady: Climbed up the house and in through the window.
Arianna: What were you thinking? I mean, my God, you could have killed yourself. Promise me that you're not going to do something like that ever again, okay? Just promise me, okay?
Brady: Okay. I promise. What--hey, hey, hey. You're shaking. What is wrong with you?
EJ: Samantha? Why would Sydney be with Samantha?
Lexie: You meant Nicole, didn't you, father?
Stefano: Yes, of course. I misspoke. I must have... I must have mixed up the interchangeable bleach blondes. Liars that you have sired children with.
EJ: I see. Bitter and mean-spirited. He's back to himself.
Lexie: Yeah, well, it's just natural to be feeling a bit confused right now, okay, but it will pass.
Stefano: [Sighs] I hope so. [Chuckles] Yes, now, wait. Elvis, you are saying that Sydney is with Nicole, and you don't know where they are?
EJ: That's right.
Stefano: So find them, damn it. Find them and bring them home where they belong.
Nicole: I came to get some papers I need.
Kate: Fine. Just do it, and do it quickly because this isn't your home anymore.
Nicole: Thank you for the charming reminder.
Kate: And ring the bell the next time, okay? Give me those damn keys.
Nicole: May I look for what I need?
Kate: Please do, and do it quickly. What the hell is that? Ah. Ah, Sydney's passport.
Nicole: Give that back.
Kate: What, pray tell, are you planning to do with that? Oh. I see. Will you be leaving a forwarding address for your bills and your hate mail?
Nicole: Hm. No, no forwarding address.
Kate: No. Just going to sneak off into the dark, as it were.
Nicole: Let's go, Sydney.
Kate: Just have to wonder how EJ's going to feel about that, you vanishing with the baby that he raised as his own.
Nicole: EJ kicked us out. He wants nothing to do with Sydney.
Kate: Let's see about that.
Arianna: Look at me. I am a mess, huh? Well, you know what, if someone saw you coming in...
Brady: Nobody--nobody saw me coming in through the window. Okay, look, I know we're supposed to keep this relationship of ours a secret or whatever, but that's exactly why I'm here, okay? Since I can't take you out on a proper date, I brought the date to you. I'm trying to be discreet here.
Arianna: Well, this is what I'm afraid of.
Brady: What are you--what are you afraid of?
Arianna: You just don't understand how important it is to keep this relationship a secret. If someone finds out that we're together...
Brady: If someone finds out, what, what, it's going to be the end of the world? I don't get it.
Arianna: You know, I think that getting back together was just a really bad idea.
Nicole: Put that phone down.
Kate: Oh, so now you're telling me what to do in my own house.
Nicole: Do you really want to stop me from leaving, Mrs. DiMera? Okay, fine. I'll stay, and maybe I'll... seduce one of your sons. Philip, Lucas--who should be first?
Kate: My God, Nicole, get the hell out of here.
Nicole: No, I mean, use your head, Kate. Wouldn't having me on the other side of the planet be a dream come true?
Kate: Well, it would be one of them, that's true, but, you see, Stefano loves that little girl. He would be very, very unhappy if she disappeared from his life.
Nicole: As if you really care how Stefano feels.
Kate: Oh, my God. Are you really that stupid that you didn't learn anything about the DiMeras? That family comes first always? And I'm Stefano's wife.
Nicole: And I'm Sydney's mother. So you listen, and you listen good. I will lay down my life for that little girl. And I will trample anyone who gets in the way, and that includes you, you hateful bitch.
EJ: Look, father, you just need to just calm down.
Stefano: Don't tell me what I need and what I do not need, all right?
EJ: No, what you're asking me to do...
Stefano: No, I'm not asking you anything. I'm telling you. You got to find that little girl and bring her home.
EJ: I can't do that. I won't do that.
Stefano: How can you be so callous? You'll allow Nicole to take away your little girl? Have you no heart?
EJ: She broke my heart, father.
Stefano: Oh, poor Elvis. His heart is broken. Am I supposed to feel sorry for somebody who casts his daughter aside? [Coughs]
EJ: You okay? I am not going to let Sydney live in my house and continue that lie. All right?
Stefano: For God's sake.
EJ: Father, she's not my daughter.
Stefano: She is! She is your daughter, you fool.
Victor: I've always had tremendous admiration for you, Hope. The way you meet your challenges head on. I know how you've been through some very difficult times lately.
Hope: Difficult times? My daughter was kidnapped, almost killed.
Victor: I'm not just talking about what happened to Ciara. I'm talking about Zack as well. I've lost a child, so I know the pain stays with you. It never goes away.
Hope: That's forever true.
Victor: Are you sure you want to leave this place? Where Zack was born? Where you have all your cherished memories of him? Now you sneak back in here when Bo is away. Don't you think you at least owe them the courtesy of an explanation? Face-to-face good-bye?
Hope: I have to do it this way. Because I'm afraid I won't be able to look him in the eye and still be able to leave.
Justin: Before we start tossing out the legal terms, let's see if we can't have a civil discussion between the two of you and just have you talk through some things. Shall we?
Chad: Oh, yeah, that'll work.
Will: How did this happen anyway? You were supposed to be representing Mia.
Justin: Will, I'm sorry. I had no idea this was the same case that you and I talked about.
Will: Yeah, well, once you hear the whole story, you're probably gonna want to drop your new client.
Chad: Look, I don't understand! How the hell is this any of your business?
Justin: Okay, stop, right now. If we can't behave rationally, I am out of here. Okay? And I'll have no part of this.
Will: That's fine with me. You're on his side anyway.
Mia: Can we just get on with this, please?
Justin: Sit down. Both of you.
Chad: Can you tell him to leave? Please?
Justin: Will, actually, it might not be a bad idea to let Mia and Chad work this out themselves.
Mia: No. I want him to stay.
Chad: Well, I don't.
Will: Okay, well, she wants me to stay, okay, so deal with it.
Chad: I don't get it. What are you, some kind of knight in shining armor?
Will: Oh, I'm sorry. You're some sort of hero, right? You know, Mia gets pregnant, you get shipped off to reform school for drugs. Now you try to come back here, acting like you're some sort of father? Now who's delusional?
Chad: Look, you don't know anything about me.
Will: Yeah, well, I know enough to see that you're nothing but an arrogant jerk.
Justin: Chad! Chad!
Kate: You think it helps your case to call me names, Nicole?
Nicole: No. No, I don't. I'm sorry. I'm tense, obviously, and not myself.
Kate: Obviously. Because your real self is so genteel, such a class act.
Nicole: Kate, I really need you not to tell EJ we're leaving. Please.
Nicole: Fine, you won't tell him?
Kate: Fine, I will allow you and your daughter to leave town without telling EJ or anyone else who might stop you.
Nicole: Thank you.
Kate: I'm doing it because it really benefits my grandson will to have that baby gone. He somehow has gotten involved in the custody suit involving her and his little friend Maya.
Kate: Whatever. So, you need to go before I change my mind. You need to leave, get out of our lives, and get out of Salem for good.
EJ: Look, Father, I loved that little girl. I loved that little girl as if she were my own.
Stefano: Not as if.
EJ: But the fact of the matter is that she's not. And she has parents, and they have rights, and those rights must be respected.
Stefano: All right, listen, please, listen to me.
Lexie: Father, father, don't get yourself all worked up, okay? Any kind of stress could overtax your heart.
Stefano: The hell with my heart!
Lexie: Shh, shh, shh. Calm down. Shh, shh.
Stefano: Don't shush me. Okay? He's got to hear this, all right? Elvis has got to know that this is the thing that if--
EJ: Father. Father.
EJ: Lexie, do something. Father, are you okay?
Lexie: Get a crash cart in here, code blue.
EJ: Father! Father!
Brady: So now it's a bad idea for us to be together.
Arianna: I-I couldn't live with myself if something happened to you.
Brady: Why don't you let me worry about that?
Arianna: I wish it were that easy.
Brady: All right. You want me to go, Arianna, I will go.
Arianna: No, wait...
Brady: No, I'll leave.
Arianna: I don't want you to go, you know that.
Brady: Well, I need you to make up your mind here.
Arianna: I want you to stay. I do. I just, um, I think that we need to talk more about this stuff.
Brady: No, I don't think we need to talk more at all. You really still think this is a bad idea?
Justin: Chad, just stop, all right? Just enough. Now getting arrested for assault isn't gonna help you win custody. Do you understand? [Sighs] Okay. A mediation is always the best course of action in a situation like this. And, Chad, if you're willing to try, it's possible that you might be able to come to some sort of custody arrangement with the adoptive mother.
Chad: No way.
Mia: Oh, my god. Why is he like this?
Chad: This is winner-take-all.
Mia: You think there's a winner in this?
Justin: Mia, please.
Mia: There is no winner, Chad. Especially if Sydney gets taken away from EJ and Nicole, the only parents she's ever known.
Mia: And whose fault is that, huh? I mean, was it my idea to stick our kid with an out-of-work, ex-porn star? I mean, is that what you thought was best for our little girl?
Mia: It's better than giving her to you.
Chad: See what I have to put up with? No deal. I want full custody.
Justin: Uh, Chad, I'm sorry, but I can't help you with that.
Chad: I'm sorry. What?
Justin: Well, since you failed to disclose the whole story when you retained me, I can't take the case. Especially considering the bad blood between my family and the DiMeras.
Chad: So that's it? You're just gonna hang me out to dry?
Justin: Well, maybe if you'd been upfront about the fact that you were talking about Sydney DiMera, I might have been able to tell you that right upfront.
Chad: [Laughs] This is crazy.
Mia: I guess it's like you're always telling me, Chad. Better to be honest from the get-go.
Will: Oh, but you can still help us, right? I mean, you can make sure Nicole doesn't lose custody of Mia's baby?
Justin: Sorry. I can't do that either.
Nicole: Okay, I think we have everything we need, sweetheart.
Kate: Except for the silverware and the family jewels.
Nicole: Oh, oh, wait a minute, I'm missing a document.
Kate: Nicole, you're stalling.
Nicole: No, I'm just--I'm trying to get everything I need.
Kate: You know, I think what you really need is to go back to a time before all of your lies were exposed, to a time when your last chance for happiness didn't go up in smoke. You don't really want to leave, do you?
Lexie: We got his heart rhythm stabilized. You can take the crash cart out. I'll let you know when I need it next. [Exhales] That was a close call. Too close.
EJ: He is going to pull through, right?
Lexie: I don't know. Even the phoenix can't live forever. Whatever he was trying to tell you might remain a mystery forever.
Hope: I know I need to talk to Bo, I do.
Victor: The truth of the matter is you don't really want to leave here. That's clear as day.
Hope: That's true. I don't. But I don't see any other way, Victor.
Victor: I understand your fears. I mean, the idea of living alone with Ciara in a strange house. And that's not cowardice. That's a smart, protective mother. Suppose I could offer you an alternative.
Arianna: I'm glad you came here tonight. Even if you did scare me half to death.
Brady: All right, no more coming through the window in the middle of the night. Probably a bad idea, right?
Arianna: No, it was okay. I'm really glad you're here.
Brady: Me too.
Will: But Uncle Mickey said you would help us out.
Justin: But I didn't know the specifics. And now I have access to privileged information from both parties. Which means it would be a breach of ethics if I agreed to advocate for either Mia or Chad.
Chad: Fine. I'm sure my dad will help me find someone else.
Will: Can we at least ask you for some advice?
Justin: [Sighs] I really wish I could offer more help.
Mia: So that's it? You're just gonna walk away?
Justin: Mia. Look, one thing I do realize... you didn't actually give up your baby for adoption.
Mia: What are you saying?
Justin: Essentially, you sold her. And there's nothing legal about it.
Mia: Because I loved her. And I still do, more than anything. God, my baby, what's going to happen to her? What's gonna happen to my little girl?
Justin: I know you did what you thought was best for your daughter, but you need to be prepared for what a jury is going to hear. And the fact is... the court's bias almost always leans towards the biological parents. And if you want to sign away your rights, that would mean that Chad would get custody of Sydney.
Nicole: Well, it's you and me against the world, kiddo.
EJ: I didn't expect him to get this upset.
Lexie: He's very close to Sydney. You know that.
EJ: [Sighs] I don't understand why. I mean, he knows that she's not a DiMera, and that's his thing.
Lexie: He loves Sydney, okay? He's obviously very--very emotionally attached to her. He's just probably worried that he'll never see her again. I mean, considering we have no idea where Nicole is.
EJ: This doesn't add up. What if...
EJ: He was having her followed for a long time. What if he knew about this?
Lexie: No. No. I mean, never in a million years would our father have allowed Nicole to pass off someone else's child as yours. No.
Hope: Thank you. Uh, thank you for your offer. It's very sweet of you, but...
Victor: I know that the mansion has not been one of your favorite places, but a lot's changed since you've been there.
Hope: I know that.
Victor: And I can assure you the Kiriakis estate is not a place where I conduct my business. You should also know that the feud with the DiMeras has passed. And a pax Kiriakis proudly exists in its place.
Hope: So I hear.
Victor: You'll never want for anything in my home, Hope. And perhaps it'll afford you the time to rebuild things with Bo. You two are soul mates. Been that way for as long as I can remember. And I won't have the two of you torn apart. Not on my watch. I love my sons more than anything, more than my own life. And since Isabella's passed, you're the only daughter I have now.
Hope: We'll try it. See how it goes.
Brady: Are you sure you want to do this?
Arianna: I'm sure.
Mia: I don't know what to do if Chad wins.
Will: Oh, he won't, okay?
Mia: Will, he can't take care of Sydney by himself, and his parents are not gonna help him.
Chad: Actually, they already have. I mean, my parents can't represent me, of course, because they don't do custody work, but they're totally on my side.
Mia: What are you saying?
Chad: I'm saying they hired a new lawyer for me. So you best believe I'll be getting her, Mia, and that's the last time you'll ever see that little girl.
Will: Hey, look, don't let him get to you, okay? It's all talk.
Mia: What if it's not? What if what he says is true?
Will: Look, Nicole's smart. Okay? She'll do everything in her power to make sure Sydney stays protected.
Mia: God, I hope so.
Nicole: Are you excited, Syd, huh? We're gonna go up, up, up, up, up in the sky. Yes, we are.
[Cell phone rings]
Nicole: Hang on a sec. Yeah. Ooh. Sami, hey. We're good. Yeah, Sydney and I are on the plane as we speak. Thank you again for all your help.
Nicole: We're on our way. Good luck to you too. Um, no, I don't think it's a good idea if we keep in touch. I'm sure you understand. Okay, well, have a great life, Sami. Maybe we'll see each other in the next one, huh? Bye. I feel sad for Sami, honey, I do. But I'm your mommy. And that's never gonna change. Do you wave bye-bye to Salem, honey, huh? Wave bye-bye. Onward and upward. Good-bye, EJ. I'll always love you.
EJ: Come on. Open your eyes. Open your eyes. Open your eyes, father, please. Come on. 'Cause after everything I've lost, I'm not losing you too. [Exclaims] Father. Father, father. Hey.
Stefano: Sydney... I want to see her.
EJ: Sure. Okay. If it will make you feel better, I'll get her.
Stefano: Thank you, my son. Thank you.
EJ: Just answer me this. You were about to say something about Sydney earlier. You didn't finish--father? Father.
Lexie: We have to let him rest, okay?
EJ: [Silently] Okay.
EJ: You get better.
[Knock at door]
Hope: Hey, Justin.
Justin: Hey, Hope.
Hope: Come on in.
Justin: I was hoping to catch Bo.
Hope: Oh, well, he's at the station, I think. Anything I can do?
Justin: Uh, no. No, it's a police matter involving one of my clients.
Hope: Clients? I didn't realize you were taking on new clients. Does this mean you're sticking around?
Justin: [Laughs] Yeah, well, you know, the last of my kids left for college and Adrienne and I could use a little break.
Justin: Oh, looks like you're moving back home. Congratulations.
Hope: Actually, uh... that's where you're wrong. Ciara and I are moving into the Kiriakis mansion.
Justin: With Uncle Victor?
Hope: Yeah. Shocked?
Justin: Yeah. I am.
Hope: Yeah. To be honest with you, so am I. I declined his offer at first. I don't have too many good memories of that place. But you know your uncle. He can be... persuasive?
Justin: Yes. He can be that.
Hope: Well, now knowing that you're going to be sticking around, I-I suppose that would make the house a little more welcoming.
Justin: Well, I'll do my best to make you and Ciara feel right at home.
Justin: At least until you, you know, you know, agree to come back to your real home.
Justin: Let me get that.
Hope: Thank you.
Justin: All right. Okay.
Victor: Brady, it's me. I thought we'd agreed you'd keep your phone on in case I needed to reach you. Damn.
Man: Yeah, no, Arianna's not coming in. She asked for the night off.
Arianna: [Sighs] I wish this night would never end.
Brady: Mm. Does it have to end?
Brady: Come here.
EJ: Night, Kate.
Kate: Wait. Wait. Something's wrong. What is it? Is it Stefano?
EJ: He woke up.
Kate: He woke up. He woke up, and you didn't call me? You didn't tell me?
EJ: Kate, he's not taking any more visitors at the moment, okay? He had another setback. His situation is somewhat precarious.
Kate: Precarious? What--what does that mean?
EJ: It means he's not getting better. It means he might not get better. You happy? This is what you wanted, isn't it?
Nurse: Comfortable, Mr. DiMera?
Stefano: Yes, thank you. [Clears throat] [Exhales]
Nicole: If I didn't do this, she would have kept EJ's daughter from him forever.
Stefano: If a word of this ever gets out, and I am living proof of that, hmm, what would happen? If Samantha discovers the truth and files for custody of Sydney?
Nicole: She doesn't know, and she never will.
[Cell phone rings]
Flight attendant: Ladies and gentlemen, at this time, we'd like to ask you to turn off all electronic devices and cell phones as we prepare for departure to Rio de Janeiro.
[Cell phone rings]
Stefano: You come to me with my granddaughter now.
Carly: Bo, here I come.
Sami: Nicole loved you. Now she's gone.
Nicole: Sorry, Stefano, I am finally out of your jurisdiction.
