Stefano: I heard there is a vigil for Sydney tonight.
EJ: Yes. And I’d prefer it if you didn't come.
Stefano: Well, ah, children. They're either selfish or geniuses. And they do not understand how much they need us.
Kate: Or how much we need them.
Rafe: You got any new leads on Sydney? Yeah, right. Uh, no, actually, man, my phone is always on. All right, thanks.
Carly: Oh, gosh, I'm sorry.
Both: It's you.
Bo: There they are, the world travelers. Come on in.
Julie: Oh, darling. We've missed you guys so much.
Doug: Merry Christmas.
Bo: Good to see you.
Julie: Honey, let me put the swag down.
Bo: Let me take your coat for you.
Julie: You know, for a while there, we weren’t sure we were going to make it.
Julie: Yes. We were delayed. And then at the last minute-- the very, very last minute--they cleared us for take off and here we are. Well, isn't this beautiful and exciting, Grandma's idea, hanging the family ornaments on your tree? That means you, and Hope, and Ciara are all going to be back together for Christmas. I think it's gonna be perfect.
Sami: Hi, Hope.
Hope: Merry Christmas, honey. Anything?
Sami: No. No. No word on Sydney.
Hope: Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry. I-I know how hard this must be. Especially now.
Sami: Yeah. Uh, well, you know, I-I just focus on the twins. I'm trying to stay strong for them.
Hope: Honey, can I give you a little advice?
Brady: Yeah, it sounds like the border crossings are turning into a mess. So, um... just keep trying, please? Thanks.
Brady: Hey. I-I didn’t hear you come in.
Arianna: Oh, Henderson said it was cool. So here I am.
Brady: That's fine. Mm.
Arianna: I like the tree.
Brady: Oh, yeah, the Kiriakises--we go all out.
[Cell phone ringing]
Arianna: Do you need to get that?
Brady: Uh, yeah. Yeah, I do. Hold on. One second. Okay?
Brady: Yeah, what's up? No. No, damn it. Not next week. It has to be done tomorrow. Yes. In jail. That--that's right. Nicole Walker DiMera. Your retainer will be on its way, all right?
Anna's voice: Shh. Hush, baby, hush. Hush, sweet pea.
Nicole: That voice. But who is it? Oh, my God, if I could only remember.
Anna: Look at my sweetheart. Hmm. You were so full of life. And I know you must be worried that this Christmas I'm all alone. But I'm not, my darling. Not any more.
Sami: So you think I should follow my gut instinct?
Hope: Or even a thought. Anything. Listen to me. Anything at all that you think will help find Sydney, you act on it and you act on it immediately. Sami, I almost lost my little girl. And now I don't know if--if she'll ever completely recover. She's still having nightmares. Living it, I mean, honestly, I-- I don't know if she'll ever be able to forget. All because her father decided that we needed to follow procedure. That he--look, the bottom line is if I'd gone with my gut and said the hell with procedure, my little girl would've been home that first day safe and sound. And now... she may never be the same.
Sami: Oh. Sounds like her life isn't the only one that's changed forever.
Bo: I am sure we'll all have a beautiful Christmas. But I wouldn't really count on it being perfect.
Doug: Thank you.
Julie: Is it wrong of me to want to see you, and Ciara, and Hope all happy?
Bo: No. It's not wrong of you. And you wouldn't be you-- Mrs. H. wouldn't be Mrs. H.--if you guys didn't want to fix things. But this is Hope's problem, and my problem, and we have to work it out. You know I'm right.
Julie: No, Bo, darling, I don't know you're right. And I don't intend to hang a single Horton ornament on your tree until all of us work everything out.
Bo: I love you truly. I don't want to disappoint you or anybody else. But... it would take an awful lot for us to get that Christmas miracle this year.
Carly: I was beginning to think I imagined you.
Rafe: Yeah. Same here. I remembered your face, but, uh, well, and then, obviously, you saved my life.
Carly: Well, I'm--I'm just glad to see you looking good and strong.
Rafe: Yeah. I'm good.
Carly: Yeah. Good.
Rafe: You know, I went back to the boat to thank you but you were gone.
Carly: Uh, no, wasn't my boat. I was a passenger.
Rafe: What are you doing in Salem? You have family here? You staying?
Carly: Uh, well, I lived here years ago, actually, and--and now I'm back--permanently.
Brady: Tomorrow, otherwise I stop payment on the check. Good. Call me after you've met with her.
Arianna: Did you get Nicole a lawyer?
Brady: Yeah. You--you overheard that, huh?
Arianna: So when were you going to tell me?
Brady: Ari. Yesterday. I had every intention of telling you, all right? It's just you--you were helping Gabi with the dance, and you were all very happy, and I thought it could wait a day. I'm sorry. I was gonna tell you.
Arianna: Me too. Yet, the bottom line is you are still protecting her.
Brady: Ari, I'm not gonna let someone let the legal system take her for-- you're really mad, aren't you?
Arianna: Just--I want you to just do what you do because it's really, you know-- I'm--I'm in no position to judge, right? So I got to go. I’ll see you at the vigil.
Brady: Arianna, stop—
Arianna: No, I have some things I need to take care of at work, anyway.
Brady: Oh. [Sighs]
Nathan: [Knocking at door] Hello. Hello.
Maggie: Hey, come in.
Nathan: You ready to go?
Maggie: As ready as I'll ever be. Uh, Mickey went to pick up Alice.
Maggie: And, uh, uh-oh, I forgot to lock the front door. Be right back. Oh.
Stephanie: These Horton-Brady Christmas Eves, lots of excitement.
Nathan: Yeah, it's my first one in years.
Stephanie: I have to admit I’m not mad at Melanie for wanting to stay away.
Nathan: Yeah. Yeah, me either. I mean, now I get to see things in a whole new way. All kinds of possibilities that I would’ve missed otherwise.
Stephanie: Like what?
Nathan: Like this.
Philip: Well, this has got to be a first, you not talking.
Melanie: [Laughs lightly] It's just, um, this is a big like life-changing. Humongous.
Philip: So the answer is "No, you won't marry me"?
Rafe: I am so grateful to you. And I--I've been meaning to tell my girlfriend Sami about you and everything you did. And it's just, uh--
Carly: Sami. That's--that's what you were trying to tell me.
Carly: You were delirious on the boat. And I kept asking you your name and you would say Sam. So I thought your name was Sam. But you were trying to say "Sami," okay.
Rafe: Well, you know, that sounds right. I...don't remember any of that stuff though.
Carly: Well, no, that makes sense. But that must mean that you're involved in this--this situation with the missing baby--the one that Sami just found out was hers.
Rafe: Yeah, I am. Yeah. Wait, do you know her?
Carly: I do.
Rafe: Maybe you would like to come tonight. We're holding a candlelight vigil for Sydney. Um, it's gonna be right here on the pier.
Carly: Sure. Anything--anything to help.
[Cell phone rings]
Doug: We know these issues are serious.
Julie: It's a text from Mickey. Excuse me.
Doug: And nobody's expecting that just because we're all here for Christmas, that--
Julie: Darling, pardon me again.
Julie: Uh, Mickey is in the driveway. He's got Grandma with him. Would you help get her into the kitchen?
Doug: Well, sure, yeah. Sweetie pie, let's not push, okay?
Julie: I wouldn't dream of it.
Hope: You're right. My life has changed. But we're talking about you and your daughter. I really hope you take my advice, honey.
Sami: I will. Thank you.
Hope: I better get going. My dad and Julie are probably at the house by now.
Sami: Well, please give Doug and Julie my love.
Hope: I will. And you. You hang in there. And you be strong. Tonight, okay?
Sami: Yes. Thank you for coming. Hope, I really appreciate your time and--and everything. Your advice.
Hope: Okay. Sami, I'm always here for you, sweetheart.
[Cell phone rings]
Rafe: Hey. There you are. When are you coming?
Sami: Oh, um, yeah. I'll--I'll be right there. Actually, there's one thing I want to do first. Um, love you.
Rafe: Love you.
Sami: Hope's right. I got to go with my gut.
Melanie: But, I mean, when I think back on it, Philip, it's not like we had this really long, great courtship.
Philip: Melanie. We have got it. We are right.
Melanie: How do you know that?
Philip: Because I can feel it like I've never felt it before. Can't you?
Melanie: Yeah. Yeah, I can feel it. Of course, I feel a lot like—you think you can win me over. Like I'm this month's prize that you can get for a kiss and a song.
Philip: Well, of course you're not. You never were. I just... I mean, if you want to wait...
Melanie: I do. I'm so sorry.
Philip: It's okay. I'm a patient man. So I guess this means you won't be wearing that ring then, huh?
Melanie: No. Let me just—[Grunts]
Arianna: Any news?
Rafe: No. No news yet. Hoping maybe something's gonna come out of this candlelight vigil.
Arianna: Let's hope so.
Rafe: Yeah. What's wrong with you?
Arianna: He got Nicole a lawyer.
Rafe: Mm. You surprised by that?
Arianna: I was kind of hoping that he would put her behind him. But... no.
Rafe: Well... it's no secret that I'm not Brady’s biggest fan. But it is Christmas.
Arianna: And what?
Rafe: Maybe he's just doing Nicole this one last favor so he can... move on with you.
Arianna: [Laughs nervously]
Brady: "These belonged to my abuelo, my grandfather. He was very special to me and so are you."
Julie: Here you are married forever. Two beautiful children. All of this history. You have a couple of little disagreements and it's good-bye, good luck? It makes no sense!
Bo: Julie, this is Christmas. We're gonna--
Julie: And you two are a family. And there are children involved. Do you think you can just bail on each other when something goes wrong, when things aren't perfect? Let me tell you, darling, things are seldom perfect. It's called life. You know what I'm saying- life?
Bo: Yes, I know life isn't always perfect. I'm not an idiot.
Julie: Well, my darling, you could've fooled me.
Bo: Hmm. Just because Hope and I are hosting this Christmas tree thing doesn't mean our problems, our difficulties are just going to vanish into thin air.
Hope: Bo's right, Julie.
Julie: Oh, darling.
Hope: I’m so glad you and Daddy could make it.
Julie: Yes, well, you know, well, the plane was delayed in Salt Lake City, you know. And--and so we just--
Hope: I do. I know that you're here and I am--I am so happy. And as Bo has, um, obviously pointed out to you, much as we’re happy to welcome everyone into our--into our home for Christmas, it’s... it's not going to solve everything.
Bo: And so we hope you will respect our privacy and let us work this out.
Maggie: Of course.
Hope: Maggie, Merry Christmas.
Maggie: Hi. Merry Christmas.
Julie: What do you mean "of course," Maggie? The two of you aren't working this out. Shouldn't you let the people who love you try to help you? Do you really expect us to stand by, watch the two of you split up, and say nothing?
Hope: Daddy--oh, Daddy. Merry Christmas.
Doug: Merry Christmas. Sweetheart. Hey, for Pete's sake, that's enough. Stop right now. I mean, just leave my daughter and her husband alone.
Anna's voice: Shh. Hush, baby, hush. Hush, sweet pea. Everything's gonna be all right.
Nicole: [Exhales] Damn it. Why can't I remember that voice?
Sami: So it's true. You are remembering something.
Julie: I just want to help.
Doug: I know. But their marriage is their business, not ours. Period.
Julie: My husband is right. I'm sorry, everybody. I'm sorry. I think I must just... be interfering.
Bo: Uh, we know it's because you care and because you come with opinions.
Julie: I do. Yes. And in the future, I will attempt in this matter to keep them all to myself.
Maggie: So how about we start hanging those ornaments?
Lucas: Did somebody say ornaments?
[Exclamations and greetings]
Maggie: Don't you look gorgeous. Come here.
[All speaking at once]
Hope: [Flashes back to the past] Zack's dead.
Bo: And there are no words to... describe the horror that we have lived through. But, Hope, uh, family, when they go through a tragedy like this, they need each other. To grieve with. To lean on each other.
Rafe: Well, listen, Brady’s not the kind of guy who would turn his back on someone, right?
Arianna: [Exhales] I respect him for that. I-I really do.
Rafe: Did you get him a Christmas present?
Arianna: I did. Grandpa's cuff links.
Rafe: Wow. Okay. Well, I hope you can explain that one to Mom.
Arianna: She'll understand when she meets him.
Hope: You disappeared.
Bo: Yeah, it, um, got a little close in there. Your family loves you a lot.
Hope: You too.
Bo: Yeah, I always kind of felt part of the Horton family. I knew this Christmas was going to be tough. But, um, seeing your family hurt for us like this, it’s...
Hope: I just--I just wish there were a way.
Bo: Me too.
Hope: If this were a movie, you'd take me in your arms. And the music would swell. And you'd whisper in my ear that everything's--that everything's gonna be okay.
Bo: Yeah. But it's not that simple.
Hope: So much has happened.
Bo: Too much.
Hope: We never dealt with it. Everyone said we were meant to be together, and we believed it, and we moved on. And...and now look what we are.
Bo: Yeah. I'm gonna, um, go check on Ma and Sami, see how they're doing. I... I'll be back.
Sami: So this voice you're hearing, it's talking to Sydney?
Nicole: I know who it is. It is so familiar to me.
Sami: But you can't place it. Have you told the police?
Nicole: Yeah, like they'd believe me.
Sami: Have you told anyone?
Nicole: No, no, not so far. It's just--it--it's so vague. And they would just think I’m lying again anyway so why even bother?
Sami: You're gonna bother, Nicole, because we are trying to bring my baby home. Her life is at stake. So you are gonna do whatever you can to remember and then you're gonna tell me.
Stefano: Anna, my dear, it's, uh, Stefano. I was, uh, just sitting here thinking about Anthony. And I, uh, wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas.
Anna: Did you?
Stefano: You know, I would like it very much if you would come and spend tomorrow with us, hmm? You just tell me where you are, I will send the jet for you. Anna, I would really like you to still be part of this family because it certainly would make me feel closer to my son.
Anna: You want to feel closer to Tony? Drop dead.
Nicole: I am trying. That is what I've been doing day and night. I am trying to place that voice. Sami, I-I-I would give my life to help bring Sydney home safely to you and to--to EJ. And I--if I knew who this woman was, I would tell you.
Sami: [Exhales] Must be because Christmas…
Sami: I believe you. Nicole, focus, okay? Just do whatever you can to remember who this voice is. And the second you do--the second you remember anything-- you call me.
Nicole: Yes, of course, I will.
Sami: Merry Christmas.
Melanie: Oh, it felt tight when I put it on. I’ll just get some soap and water.
Philip: No, don’t.
Philip: It's fate. We were meant to be together. You're gonna have to marry me now.
Melanie: [Laughs] You said that we could wait.
Philip: No, face it, we're bonded. We're meant to be together forever.
Melanie: Forever is a really long time.
Philip: Not long enough.
Sami: Oh, hey, Rafe.
Sami: I have good news.
Rafe: Well, what?
Sami: You know how Nicole said she was remembering a voice, someone talking to Sydney?
Rafe: Yeah, of course.
Sami: She thinks she knows who it is. Yeah, she thinks the voice sounds familiar. And she's trying to remember exactly who the person is. But she thinks she's gonna remember.
Rafe: Well, that's great-- that's great news, Sami.
Sami: Yeah, right?
Rafe: Yeah. Maybe it'll lead to something.
Sami: Yeah. Maybe. Maybe.
Rafe: What? What's up?
Sami: Nothing. Just on the way here, I was thinking...
Rafe: What? Tell me.
Sami: About Nicole and what she did. And just wondering what our lives would've been like if she hadn't--if she hadn't switched the babies.
Rafe: We're going to have that life with Sydney. We're gonna get it back.
Sami: But EJ's in the picture now. Everything is so complicated. You know? It just could've been so perfect for us. You know? We could've--we could've had Sydney and we could've raised her--just you and me.
Rafe: Sami, hey, listen. I love Sydney. I will raise her like she is my own.
Sami: I know you will.
EJ: Hey. Sorry I'm late.
Sami: Hey, you know, I just got here too. I was telling Rafe about, um, how I talked to Nicole earlier. And you know how she remembers that voice, right? Well, she's saying she thinks she knows who that voice is. She thinks she knows.
EJ: Samantha, I'm sorry, she's just stringing us along 'cause she's starved for attention.
Sami: No. I know. I-I really believe Nicole this time. I think that she's telling us the truth that she is going to remember who that voice is. She's gonna help us get Sydney back.
Rafe: Sami, hey, if Nicole remembers, that is great news. Doesn't matter, we're gonna get Sydney back anyways. It's my gift to you.
Abe: Uh, excuse me, everyone. Excuse me, please. Uh, if I could have your attention. Uh, first of all, I want to thank you all for coming. I'm Abe Carver. And as mayor of Salem, and as uncle to Sydney DiMera, I'm making efforts to return little Sydney to us safely.
Hope: I promised Sami that I would go to the candlelight vigil they're holding down by the river? Would it be okay if I left Ciara with you and Daddy?
Julie: Are you kidding? We'd love to have her all to ourselves. You go down there and--and give Sami a big hug from us. And tell her Doug and I are praying for little Sydney.
Hope: I will. I'll be back in a little while, okay?
Julie: Good. Good.
EJ: If anybody out there thinks they have information about Sydney, please contact the police. And just remember, no detail is--is too small. Sydney's mother and I know that, uh, we haven't been perfect. And things haven't always worked out the way we would like for our little girl. But we love her a great deal. And we miss her. And we need her back in our arms. So please help us.
Sami: So as most of you already know, I-I just recently found out that Sydney was my daughter. I carried her for nine months. I gave birth to her. And lost her. So to whoever has my little girl... if you can hear my voice... I'm begging you--I'm begging you to--please don't let me lose my daughter again. Please bring her back to me. [Crying]
EJ: Maybe we could all join our hands in a silent prayer.
Melanie: Whoa. [Laughs] Yes. Yes.
Melanie: Yes what?
Philip: Well, yes. I mean, uh, come on, Mel. The way you just made love to me, I mean, I got to assume the answer's yes.
Melanie: How could I say no? [Laughs]
Philip: Merry Christmas, future Mrs. Kiriakis.
Melanie: Merry Christmas.
Brady: Hey, man.
Abe: How you doing?
Nicole: Dear God, last year, I begged you to bring EJ and me a baby. All I'm asking now is that you bring EJ and Sami's baby home safely. Please.
Rafe: We're going to get Sydney back. You have my word on that.
Sami: I know. I know.
[Radio plays soothing music]
[Radio clicks off]
Anna: Even your wicked father is trying to do the right thing. Which means…we are going to take a little drive into Salem—and do what has to be done.
Nathan: I made reservation for two at Chez Rouge.
Stephanie: A New Year’s Eve date?
Sami: So they found Sydney?
Stefano: Everything was for your sake, you heartless ingrate!
