Sami: Sydney is asleep. Of course, with Johnny, I had to negotiate. I told him we would have to have another DiMera family game night soon.
EJ: Mm-hmm. Better get some practice in. I don't think I can afford to lose any more elephants.
Sami: [Chuckles] How's work?
EJ: I just can't seem to concentrate.
Sami: Is everything okay?
EJ: I just... have this feeling that something's wrong.
Rafe: You want to talk terms? Let's talk terms. Now we can do this the easy way or the hard way, but either way rest assured I'm going to get that name.
Anna: All right, I'll tell you.
Anna: It was... [Coughs]
Rafe: Anna, quit stalling, okay? I'm not buying any of this. I'm not buying the theatrics. Now tell me who it was who made you take Sydney.
[Cell phone rings]
Stefano: Ah. Hello. Uh-huh. How long ago was it delivered? Very good. Keep me posted. Ciao.
Arianna: You can't handle me working with Nicole.
Brady: Hold on. I did not say that.
Arianna: You just said it. Are you, like, so addicted to her that you can't even hear her name without wanting to use?
Brady: Wow, that's a really bad choice of words to use, Ari. I may be a recovering addict, but I do have some control here, okay?
Arianna: [Laughs] You know what? I can't even talk to you anymore.
Brady: Ari, wait. Ari!
Kinsey: What's her problem?
Nicole: You have weird taste, Dick. And I cannot wait to meet this mental case you buddied up with. So spill, huh? Who's this mystery partner of yours?
Baker: Look, why don't you just give this up? I mean, why the hell does it even matter?
Nicole: Oh, I'll tell you why it doesn't matter. Because you don't want to tell me, which means you're protecting someone. So who is it? Who are you working with?
Hope: Keep your mouth shut, Doc.
Baker: The woman I'm working with is dangerous. Believe me, you're better off not knowing who she is.
Nicole: Oh, oh, so you're protecting me now. How gallant of you.
Baker: Actually, I'm protecting myself because, if I rat her out, I could end up dead for real this time. I can't risk it.
Nicole: You are one stubborn bastard, Dick. But I don't have time to waste, so I will drop it for now. I'll be in touch.
Sami: What's the problem? Is it Stefano?
EJ: Hmm? Mm, uh, no. No, it's not him. He's fine. I mean, he's--he's stable. It's not him I'm worried about.
Sami: Well, then, what is it?
Sami: Oh. It's Sydney. You must have sensed that your daughter is upset.
EJ: Yeah. That--that must be it.
Sami: I'm gonna go check on her.
EJ: Okay. Where are you, Anna? Why haven't you contacted Father?
Anna: I can't... I can't breathe.
Rafe: No, what you can't do is tell the truth.
Anna: Can't breathe.
Rafe: Tell me who you are working for. Who helped you kidnap Sydney?
Anna: Help me. Help me.
Rafe: Meryl Streep you are not.
Rafe: Anna? Anna?
Maggie: Well, tell Alice I'll be there first thing tomorrow. Okay, thanks for calling, Julie. Buh-bye.
Mia: Everything okay?
Maggie: Alice is not feeling well. Ever since Mickey died, it's been hard on her. Obviously.
Mia: I'm sorry.
Maggie: And then she found out I was in the hospital.
Mia: Poor Mrs. Horton. You know what we should do? We should bake cookies or make something to take over there.
Maggie: That's a lovely idea.
Mia: Okay, then I'll get everything out.
Maggie: Hold on just a second. There's something in your eyes.
Mia: My eyes?
Maggie: Mm-hmm. I see a sadness there. So you want to tell me why?
Brady: Look, Ari, I don't want to leave things like this, okay, so why don't you--why don't you call me back? It's Brady.
[Cell phone rings]
Arianna: Brady. Talking isn't gonna help. Not when you can't get Nicole out of your system, and I don't think you ever will.
Baker: Nicole, wait.
Nicole: What? What?
Baker: I just thought of something. How can we frame Arianna tonight if she has an alibi?
Nicole: Gee, I never thought of that.
Baker: Hey, you know, I'm just trying to help out here.
Nicole: You can help by being cool, Dick. Stop worrying, okay?
Baker: [Sighs] You're right. Why should I worry? We have such a great track record. Everything coming up roses, right?
Nicole: Dr. Baker... you and I as a team, we do have a great track record. I mean, look how expertly we switched those babies. We pulled it off, didn't we?
Baker: Smooth as silk. And the best part, look how it turned out for both of us. Happy ending all around.
Nicole: Oh, would you stop being such a crepe hanger? I will make sure that Arianna does not have an alibi, and when I do, I will give you a buzz.
Sami: [Laughs] I don't know what to do. She just won't go down.
EJ: Hey. You want to go down?
Sami: She's just awake and happy and checking everything out and wanting to play with her toys. She just won't seem to get sleepy.
EJ: Maybe she just likes giving her mother a hard time.
Sami: Could be that too. It happened last night too. Didn't it? Didn't it? You just wanted to play. I can't get her to calm down.
EJ: Oh, let's see if we can get you to go to sleep. Hey? Are you okay? Are you all right? You sleepy? Little bit? Little bit sleepy?
Rafe: Anna? Anna! Hey, Anna, can you hear me? Anna, speak--Anna, speak to me. Hey, hey.
Anna: Help me.
Rafe: Anna? Oh, damn it. Yeah, hello, this is room 427. We have a medical emergency up here. Please send someone right away.
Baker: How the hell am I gonna pull this off?
Hope: I didn't know I was working with such a celebrity.
Hope: The notorious Dr. Richard Baker. Baby-switcher extraordinaire. Hmm?
Baker: You were eavesdropping.
Hope: Conspiring with your old partner in crime. Are you trying to make me jealous, doc?
Baker: Nicole and I were just...
Hope: Were just? What? Reminiscing? About all the pain you've caused people? How many lives you've nearly destroyed?
Baker: You talking to me? You're going around knocking people out and taking their money. And you're a cop! All right? Whatever happened to protect and serve?
Hope: Whatever happened to staying true to your partner? You betrayed me. Not a smart move.
Nicole: Hey, Roman, I'm glad I ran into you. Listen, do you have any leads on the woman who attacked Brady?
Roman: No comment.
Nicole: I'm asking you as Brady's friend. And that maybe the Salem P.D. will shock us and actually solve a case.
Roman: You know what, Nicole, that is very funny, you being interested in justice being served, because if justice were being served, you'd still be in prison.
Nicole: I understand how you feel about me, Roman, and not that this will change anything, but for the record, I want you to know that I deeply regret what I did, and that I ended up hurting a lot of people. I really do.
Roman: Too little, too late, Nicole. Oh, by the way, word of warning, if you even come close to sniffing around my granddaughter again, I will make damn sure you get what you deserve.
Sami: Oh, come on! You are back already? That was like five minutes. I can't believe you got her back to sleep so easily.
EJ: Well, I just think she was ready.
Sami: It's more than that. You two have a very special bond.
EJ: She adores you, Samantha. I mean, you see her face light up when you walk into a room.
Sami: I appreciate you saying that, but, I don't know, with you, there's something special. I mean, even though you were apart for all those months when Anna had her, there's just a connection between the two of you.
Paramedic: [Speaks Spanish]
Rafe: What's wrong with her?
Paramedic: We do not know yet. Does she take some medications?
Rafe: No, not that I saw. I didn't see any bottles lying around.
Paramedic: Drugs? Alcohol?
Rafe: No, I don't think so. The only thing she had was...
Rafe: Oh, damn it.
Maggie: Mia, you're cutting classes. I got a call yesterday from the attendance office.
Mia: I should have known they'd call you. Now you're mad at me, aren't you?
Maggie: No, I'm not mad. I'm just concerned. That's not like you.
Mia: Yeah, I know, but, I mean, it's the end of term. Everybody's cutting classes. It's really not that big of a deal.
Maggie: Oh, I see, your education, your future, that's no big deal.
Mia: Well, it's just that school, I mean, it seems so trivial right now, you know? Chem labs and math theorems. None of that stuff prepares you for the real world. Really nothing does.
Maggie: Sweetheart, I know you've been through a lot in your young life. I mean, your getting pregnant and then losing little Grace. That was just a terrible tragedy. I mean, you have suffered more than most people your age should even have to. But that is no excuse for acting irresponsibly.
Mia: Yeah, but I'm not being irresponsible. I have a plan.
Maggie: A plan?
Mia: Yeah, you know how I've always wanted to become a dancer?
Maggie: Mm. Yes.
Mia: Well, I decided I'm gonna give it another try. Maggie, I'm going to drop out of school and move to New York.
Baker: What are you talking about? I didn't betray you.
Hope: What? Really? Because I could have sworn that I overheard you saying to Nicole that you would help her, that you would frame Arianna Hernandez for the attacks.
Baker: Oh, you heard that part?
Hope: You lied to me.
Baker: I didn't lie. Listen, I did it to protect us. Okay? Nicole knows I was involved in the muggings, and she can prove it. She's gonna turn us in if I--
Hope: Us? Us? She does not know that I am your partner. And you are not about to tell her.
Baker: No, of course not.
Baker: No. But I do not want to go to jail.
Hope: You cross me, and your fate will be far worse.
Baker: [Sighs] Listen to me, Nicole--
Hope: I don't give a damn whether Nicole wants you to frame Arianna Hernandez or Hillary Clinton. I am in control. And I will not allow another woman to take the fall for us. Do you understand? Am... I making myself clear?
Nicole: Do you think people will ever forgive me for what I did?
Brady: I thought you didn't care.
Nicole: I don't. As long as you forgive me, that's all that matters. Please, Brady. Just say that you'll never turn your back on me.
Brady: I gotta go. I can't talk.
Kinsey: Look, don't take it personally, okay? He's--he's in a bad mood.
Nicole: Well, how do you know that, Kinsey?
Kinsey: His girlfriend pitched a fit and stormed out earlier.
Nicole: He and Arianna got in a fight? About what?
Kinsey: Oh, I don't know. But she, like, practically ran me over when I came in. It was a total diva tantrum.
Nicole: Really. That's interesting.
Sami: I, um... I have a confession to make.
EJ: What's that?
Sami: I'm jealous of you.
EJ: Why? 'Cause I can put babies to sleep?
Sami: Not just that. I am. I'm jealous of all that time you had with Sydney when she was a baby. All the times you got to sing her to sleep and give her a bath and change her diaper and watch her grow. I feel like such a newcomer in her life.
EJ: Well, not anymore, you know. I mean, we live here together in this house. We're a family. And, Samantha, you have the rest of your life to build a relationship with your daughter.
Sami: 'Cause I've done such a bang-up job with Will.
EJ: Look, Will loves you. Okay? Johnny loves you. Allie loves you. Sydney loves you.
Sami: All the time I spent in witness protection away from my kids, lying to you, lying to myself...
EJ: You met Rafe in witness protection.
Sami: Rafe promised me I'd get Sydney back. And he was right. But he thought that everything would go back to normal, and I would just, you know, have her back, and everything would be fine, and it's not like that. You know, she doesn't know me. Trying to bond or whatever, it's hard and... it's just hard for me because of my childhood, you know, and I just wanted my kids to believe that mothers never leave.
EJ: Okay, Samantha, but you didn't leave. I mean, you didn't have a say in the matter. When Sydney is old enough, you can explain to her that this wasn't your choice. If you had had your choice, you would have been her mom from the day she was born.
Rafe: She ordered room service, had a salad and dessert, and that was right before she collapsed.
Paramedic: Does she have any food allergies?
Rafe: Well, how the hell do I know? This wasn't a food allergy. She was poisoned.
Sami: It's just mind-boggling what Nicole did. All that time she stole from me. On purpose. Switching those little girls. [Sighs] And it's not just that. I mean, the kidnapper too. Whoever's working with Anna. I swear to God, when I find out who did this, when I get my hands on them, I'm gonna kill 'em.
Maggie: Is that what this is about? Chad?
Mia: No. No, it's not. It's just a combination of things that just-- you know, mostly it's thinking about grace, thinking about my little baby. I-I need to get away from those bad memories, Maggie. I need to start a new life.
Maggie: So is that what you think you're doing? Because it sounds to me like you're running away.
Baker: Look, you--you got nothing to worry about. I really wasn't gonna frame this Arianna woman. I mean, I was just going along with it so--to keep Nicole from--
Hope: From what? Hmm?
Baker: I was humoring her?
Hope: And how do I know you're not just humoring me?
Baker: You're a hell of a lot scarier than she is.
Hope: I'm flattered.
Baker: Besides, I have a little bit of leverage. She rats me out, I tell the whole world she tried to frame this Hernandez woman. And that's not gonna sit well with one particular guy.
Baker: Brady Black. That's the schlub that Nicole is in love with, and Arianna is his fiancée, so she figures if she could take Arianna out...
Hope: That she will get Brady Black. What a fool. Taking risks like that for some untrustworthy bastard who will only break her heart in the end.
Baker: Want to talk about being a fool? You're knocking guys out and then branding them with some kind of women power symbol? I mean, what is that? Smart? Classy?
Hope: I have taken control. I will never let another man ruin my life. Not ever.
Nicole: Arianna's lights are on. Now to make sure she is all alone.
EJ: Look, I understand that you're angry. I'm angry. But the most important thing right now is that we have our precious daughter back.
Sami: I know. And I'm glad we have her back, but I want it all. You know, I want her to...
EJ: I know. I know. You want her to call you Mom, and she will. She will. Let's just not make a problem where there isn't one. Okay?
Sami: I can't help it. I love her. I love her so much, and every time I walk in there and get her up in the morning or wake her up from her nap, she's looking up at me with those big, beautiful eyes, and I... I think she's disappointed. I think she wishes I were Nicole.
Rafe: Doctor. Talk to you for a sec?
Rafe: This is the food that Anna was eating before she had her attack. It needs to be sent to a lab, checked for poison.
Doctor: Gracias. I will have it examined immediately.
Rafe: Doc? What's the prognosis? She gonna make it?
Doctor: At this moment, I cannot say. I must not make the promise. Understand?
Stefano: Ah. That's lovely. [Sighs as cell phone rings] Oh. Hello? Uh-huh. So--so her supper did not agree with her, huh? Uh-huh. Well, that's quite unfortunate. Oh, yes, it may just be her last one.
Mia: So what if I'm running away, you know? Why would I want to stay here if nobody cares about me anyway? Except for you.
Maggie: [Laughs] Thanks. That counts for something, I hope.
Mia: No, of course it does. It's just...
Maggie: It's not like having friends. I understand.
Mia: And, really, it's the bad memories like I said. You know, everywhere I go, I think of Grace. I walk by the park, and I think of the time that will and I played with her. I go by the hospital, and I think of holding her for the last time.
Maggie: Mia, I'm so sorry for what you've gone through.
Mia: And I know, you know, I know Chad's been through it too, but he didn't carry her for nine months. He didn't give birth to her. It's just different for guys, you know?
Maggie: Yeah. I think it is.
Mia: Even so, you know, at least, he knows a little bit what it's like. And now I'm about to lose him too. You know, I just feel like the only way I'm gonna get past all this is to move away. To leave the pain and misery behind.
Maggie: Let me tell you something. Every corner of this house reminds me of my life with Mickey. Sometimes I think I hear him call my name from the bedroom. I come into this kitchen, I half expect to see him sitting there, reading the paper, drinking his coffee. But if I moved away... I'd still see him. And I'd hear him. Because he's in my heart. And he always will be. Mia, you can't run away from what's in your heart.
Baker: I don't get it. Why are you so down on men? Is it that guy you told me about, the one who left you?
Hope: Do you enjoy the income I provide you?
Hope: Then shut up.
Baker: Where are you going?
Hope: I have something to take care of. You stay here.
Nicole: Come on, Arianna. Pick up.
Arianna: What is it, Nicole?
Nicole: Hey, there. Um, do you--do you have a moment? I-I wanted to talk to you about my expose. You know, one about the kids stealing in restaurants?
Arianna: Sorry, I'm officially off the clock.
Nicole: Ah, but the news never sleeps.
Arianna: Well, I do, so I'll have to talk to you tomorrow.
Nicole: You sound stuffy. Do you have a cold?
Arianna: I'm shutting off my phone, so please don't call back.
Nicole: Wow, that was rude... yet extremely helpful. Oh, and there go the lights. Everything's working out perfectly.
Doctor: Agent Hernandez. You were right. The food was poison.
Rafe: Oh, boy. I knew it. Damn, I should have been more careful.
Doctor: At least you have given her a chance, Señor. If we did not know about the poison, she would be dead by now.
Rafe: Are you saying she's gonna make it?
Doctor: It's too soon to know. The poison is rare and very difficult to treat. It is usually fatal.
Rafe: Now you listen to me. You need to do whatever you can to keep this woman alive. She's the key to everything.
Maggie: Mia, I know you want to pursue your dreams. I understand that. And I know there's a lot of pain here in Salem for you. But please finish school. It is so important. I know it doesn't feel like that now, but I'm just afraid that one day you're gonna be so sorry that you didn't graduate with your friends.
Mia: I don't know.
Maggie: It's just one more year. And after you graduate, you can choose a college of your choice in New York, California, Timbuktu, wherever. Oh, Mia, will you stay, please? Just one more year. It would be good for me to have you here. We could help each other. Well, I mean, you could help me. You're a great comfort to me. So? Is that an incentive to stay, please?
Mia: Of course it is. You're the best person I know, Maggie. You're really the only person who understands me.
Maggie: So then you won't leave? You'll stick it out?
Mia: Yeah. Yeah, I will. And like you said, we can help each other out.
Maggie: Ah! That's my girl.
Nicole: Oh, I have to make sure Arianna didn't change her mind. Ah. Voicemail. Hi, Arianna. It's me again. Listen, if you get this message, will you please return my call? I have a brilliant idea, and I can't wait to share it with you.
[Cell phone rings]
Baker: Make it fast, woman. My partner could be back any second.
Nicole: Arianna is tucked in bed all alone without an alibi, so get that evidence, plant it on a victim, any victim, tonight. Oh, Arianna, I hope you're having sweet dreams. 'Cause tomorrow you're gonna wake up with one big nightmare.
Arianna: Oh, God. Stop thinking. Get some sleep. Things'll seem better in the morning.
Hope: Our victim's ripe for the picking. Let's go.
Baker: Just let me toss this. Here goes nothing.
Rafe: So this Diego, he wasn't even working today?
Manager: No, Señor. When he arrived tonight, he told me that his uniform had been stolen from the locker room.
Rafe: Oh. Can I meet with him?
Manager: Claro. But I can't imagine he would do something like this.
Rafe: Well, I don't think it was Diego who delivered the food. It's most likely an impostor.
Manager: Dios mío. Is there anything else I can do?
Rafe: Yeah. I want to meet with the entire staff, access their employment records, and view any security tape that you have.
Manager: Certainly, señor.
Manager: Buenos tardes.
Rafe: Well, someone obviously wanted Anna dead. I'm gonna find out who it was.
Stefano: No, excellent job. Ah, no, no, no. Look, do not worry, all right? Because I will make sure that Hernandez will never find you.
EJ: Look, she might not realize it right now, okay. But at some point, she is going to realize that she has the best mother in the world.
EJ: Truly. A mother who is brave, who's nurturing, who's caring... who's gentle... who's wonderful.
Sami: You're a great parent too, EJ. You're all those things. I know I've said it before, but I just can't thank you enough for everything you've done for me the last couple of months. I am grateful to you, okay?
EJ: Shh. Shh. Thank you. Just thank you.
Sami: I should go check on Sydney, make sure she's still asleep.
EJ: Um, would you mind if I, you know, just checked on her with you?
Sami: I'd love it. Come on.
Rafe: All right, just make sure the airports are on alert for anyone suspicious. Oh, I know. This guy didn't leave much of a trail, did he? No, she's still unconscious. Whoever Anna was working for didn't want her to talk, that's for sure. Look, thanks for your help. I gotta go. Her tests come back? She gonna be all right?
Doctor: I'm sorry to say, sir, it does not look good.
Stefano: Sorry, Anthony, but that was a move that I was forced to make.
Brady: Nicole, what in the world?
Nicole: I need to talk to you, okay?
Brady: Nicole, I made it pretty clear at Java Cafe...
Nicole: It's about Arianna.
Brady: What about Arianna?
Nicole: All right, well, I called her to talk about work, right, but she just--she sounded angry and upset.
Brady: Nicole, you are not her favorite person, all right.
Nicole: I know that. I know. I know, but still she hung up on me. She just really sounded on edge. More than usual.
Brady: It's because we had an argument, okay.
Nicole: Oh, I'm sorry.
Brady: Yeah, and she is not returning my calls. And I'm gonna call her again.
Arianna: God, why is it so hot in here? This is ridiculous. I'm not gonna sleep until I settle things with Brady.
Arianna: Why is this happening? Who would be doing this?
Hope: I have my reasons for rolling the people that I roll.
Carly: I need an ambulance at the Brady pub. Commander Roman Brady’s been attacked.
