Taylor: [Panting] Let go of me.
EJ: Oh, yes.
Taylor: We can't do this.
EJ: Please. You can.
[Knocking at door]
Melanie: I just got home.
[Knocking turns into pounding]
Nathan: Uh, someone at the hospital said you were mugged. Are you okay?
Melanie: Yeah. No, just some guy tried to rob me. He got busted though.
Nathan: You should've called me.
Melanie: It's okay. Just...you can't keep walking around hoping that there's a chance for us, because there's not.
Daniel: Hey, Sami.
Sami: Thanks for making time to talk to me.
Daniel: No, no problem. I'm guessing this is about Rafe.
Sami: It just seems like no matter what... no matter what happens, he's not the same.
Daniel: There's no sign of any improvement? None?
Sami: Well, I mean, there was one thing, but...
Daniel: But what? What happened? What'd he do? What?
Sami: Well, it's sort of a long story. It's about his brother.
Gabi: This is just so great, Mr. Kiriakis. Everything's gonna be okay, you're not gonna have to spend time in jail.
Dario: That's awesome. Thanks, man.
Gabi: So where are you staying?
Dario: Um, nowhere really, just--just around.
Gabi: What? No, you cannot just stay on the street. Rafe, don't you have that extra bedroom? He could stay with you.
Justin: Actually, that's a great idea. The judge was very lenient, but when he finds out that you're actually staying with a police officer and his family...
Gabi: Then everything's gonna be better when he shows up to court, right.
Gabi: Great, so you're gonna love having him there--
Rafe 2: No, I am not. What the hell is wrong with you people? He's not staying with me.
Taylor: Wait, wait, what are you doing?
EJ: Look... I mean, I ju--
Melanie: I'm not trying to hurt your feelings. I know you think that we can still have a life together.
Nathan: Yeah. Melanie, you're still the same beautiful woman I fell in love with. You are. And I'm still the same--
Melanie: I'm not. I'm not that girl. I'll never be that girl. I've tried to explain this to you, and... you just have to accept it.
Nathan: Well, we're friends, right? And I'm allowed to be concerned about you.
Melanie: Of course.
Nathan: Then tell me what happened, come on. Are you sure you're all right? [Sighs]
Melanie: Yeah, um... he tried to rob me, but it turned out he was just doing an old con. And since I happen to know a thing or two about conning people--
Nathan: You were one step ahead of him the whole time.
Melanie: More like five. [Giggles]
Nathan: So what was he after?
Melanie: It's a necklace my mom gave me.
Nathan: It's beautiful. You said he got busted?
Melanie: Yeah. Well, I gave him a chance to come clean, but he didn't take it, so I got him arrested. The weird thing is he's Arianna's little brother.
Melanie: Yeah. Well, I don't care how much I loved Arianna, I'm gonna make him pay.
Rafe 2: Look, I'm really upset about this, okay? I wanna help out Dario too. Now having him stay with me while we get this straightened out, you're right, it's a great idea. But it's not my call. I have to get the okay from Sami. I gotta think about what it would be like for her kids, okay?
Dario: Hey, forget about it. I don't wanna stay with you anyway.
Gabi: No, no, Dario. Come on, all that Rafe is saying is that he needs to ask Sami, that's all.
Justin: You know what, I think the best thing to do is take this one step at a time. First we'll get you processed, and then we'll worry about your housing.
Rafe 2: That's a good idea, yeah. Hey, hey, listen up. There's a hotel on Center Street, you can get a bed for, like, 20 bucks a night. And you know what? Here's some extra money for--
Dario: I told you, forget about it--I'm good, okay?
Justin: Okay, look, first things first, let's go. You know what, let's just get you out of here. All right, here we go.
Rafe 2: What? Does anyone work around here? Huh? Come on, people. For crying out loud. Okay. That was a dumb move. I gotta fix this. [Sighs]
Nicole: Oh, hi! Hey.
Taylor: [Panting] Um...
EJ: [Quietly] Hey.
Nicole: What's going on here?
Nathan: Looks like you could use someone to lean on.
Melanie: Um, it's--I'm okay, I have my mom and dad. And Brady, he's a good friend.
Nathan: I'm not giving up. I love you. I know a part of you still loves me.
Melanie: It doesn't-- it doesn't matter; it can't happen.
Nathan: All right, well... let's talk later.
Melanie: No, Nathan, pl-- no. We're gonna talk about this now, for the last time.
Justin: Look, Dario. I know you needed money to pay off this P.I.
Dario: Well, he said he could find out who killed my sister.
Justin: Yeah, but think about it... if the police couldn't find the driver of this hit-and-run with all their resources... chances are, this private investigator was just taking your money. From now on, you have to stay out of trouble. Otherwise this judge is gonna come down hard. Do you understand?
Dario: Yeah, I got it.
Gabi: Thank you so much, Mr. Kiriakis.
Dario: Yeah, you've been great. Sure done a lot more than Rafe.
Justin: My pleasure. But don't sell your brother short. Okay, so remember... you cannot leave Salem, and you have to find a place to stay. Because having roots in this community is gonna be very important when facing the judge.
Justin: Good. Look, I gotta get going. We'll speak soon.
Gabi: Thank you again.
Justin: Aw, you're welcome.
Gabi: Okay. Time to make some plans.
Dario: Like what?
Gabi: Well, we need to find you a place to stay, number one. And we have to come up with some ideas on how to pay the people back you stole from. That way, Mr. Kiriakis says he thinks you'll get probation.
Dario: Yeah. Fine, whatever. Look, I have a question. Rafe and I never got along. But I respected him, and he knew that. Now I come back and he's turned into this total jerk. What the hell happened to him?
Daniel: So Rafe's brother is in Salem?
Sami: One of them is, yeah. And I guess--well, you know, he's been making mistakes.
Daniel: Well, no, I don't know. I don't know anything about him. But what kind of mistakes?
Sami: Oh, this is sort of weird--I'm the one who has to tell you that he's the one who tried to rob Melanie.
Sami: Yeah. I mean, he's been caught, obviously, right?
Daniel: Yeah, well, I heard somebody got arrested. Rafe's brother.
Sami: I mean, that's the thing--Rafe was totally by the book with Dario. He was tough on him, you know? And definitely making it clear that he was gonna have to face the consequences.
Daniel: That's good.
Sami: I agree. But that's very much the old Rafe. It's how he would've handled it. And so maybe there's a reason to be positive.
Daniel: But, there's something else. Come on.
Sami: I mean, maybe I'm making too big a deal out of this, but I really don't think that I am.
Daniel: No, talk to me about it. What's up? What is it?
Sami: I walked in on Rafe telling Johnny that he thinks it's okay for Johnny to fight with another little boy in his class if they pick on him.
Daniel: Okay. Well, um... well, obviously you didn't know about that.
Sami: Right, I didn't know. Especially that apparently he had been giving him boxing lessons. Like, encouraging him to fight. I have to tell you, I mean, I have a real problem with that. And I certainly--I just can't believe that of Rafe. I mean, that is just not in his nature. That's not who he is.
Daniel: I'm just gonna say this, all right. You need to set him straight on what is and what isn't acceptable to your kid.
Sami: I tried that. But I guess I have to try again, and I just don't know the right way to say it.
Daniel: I think I've said this before, but your nature, your true nature... strong woman.
Daniel: Yeah. You need to use that now.
Nicole: Come on, guys. What's wrong?
Nicole: Nothing? Right, um... you're both upset. Taylor looks like she's about to cry.
Taylor: I was... talking to EJ about the situation with Mom, and I was-- I was telling him that I don't think I can handle it.
Nicole: Oh. Well, I'm glad, EJ, you were here to help. I know you both got off on the wrong foot. So it looks like you're working things out.
EJ: Yes, I think we are.
Nicole: Oh, excuse me one second.
Melanie: You have to level with me here, Nathan. I mean, if Philip never slept with Chloe, if he wasn't Parker's father... you and I would be so over this. You know, all this craziness would just be memories. Which is...all we have left. And half of them aren't even true.
Nathan: No, that's not--no.
Melanie: I can't--I can't pretend to be someone I'm not. That girl that you fell in love with, I'm not her.
Nathan: Yes, you are.
Melanie: I never will be again, I... I couldn't even try.
Nathan: What do you want me to do? Hmm? You want me to walk out the door? You want me to just--you want me to walk out right now, forever?
Justin: I cannot apologize enough. Well, I appreciate that, thanks. Okay. All right, bye-bye.
Adrienne: Sorry about the door. It's a little noisy.
Justin: How are you?
Adrienne: Well... at least I'm not grimacing.
Justin: Ah, what a mess. I was-- I had some papers that I was sending to Daniel, and another set to Jennifer. And my secretary accidentally switched the envelopes.
Adrienne: Oh, man.
Justin: I feel terrible.
Adrienne: So they were upset that somebody else got a peek at their plans?
Justin: Well, I haven't spoken to Daniel yet, but I just got off the phone with Jennifer and she was very understanding.
Adrienne: Well, that's not surprising. She's a total sweetheart. Honey, everyone makes mistakes. Daniel will understand. And besides, it was your secretary, not you, right?
Justin: Yeah, but I still feel--I still feel responsible. It's ridiculous.
Adrienne: Stop beating yourself up. You are a great lawyer and everyone knows it. Especially me, because I only marry the best.
Justin: Uh-huh. Again and again.
Adrienne: [Giggles] Yes, yes.
Justin: So what's up with the plans? Did you get the church?
Adrienne: [Sighs] Oh, boy.
Justin: Is there a problem?
Nicole: [Chuckles] I really should charge this thing. Anyway, hey, I've got some time before I have to pick up Sydney from Caroline. Wanna hang out, go see Mom?
Taylor: Uh, no. You know, I think I'm gonna go lie down for a while.
Nicole: She's really upset.
Nicole: Well... thank you. For being nice to her. Listen, I'm gonna go check on her, see if there's anything I can do.
Nicole: Okay. [Chuckles]
Rafe 2: Hey, Mr. D., it's me. Hey, listen, bud, I got a situation and I need your help bad, so call me. Ugh. [Whispering] I gotta fix this. Ah, damn it. Yeah.
Rafe 2: Hey, Sami.
Sami: Hey, listen, there's something I need to talk to you about. It's important.
Rafe 2: Yeah, you know what, that's funny, babe. 'Cause I actually, I do need to talk to you. So what do you say, can you meet me down at the pier, like, right now?
Sami: Oh, okay, sure. I'll see you soon.
Rafe 2: Okay, great. Thanks. [Chuckles]
EJ: What now?
Rafe 2: What-- well, listen up, 'cause I got a little situation here and your Pops isn't answering his phone. I need you to meet me down at the pier right now. Oh, and if you're coming, make sure you stay out of sight until I finish doing a little number on Sami.
EJ: I'm sorry? You want me to go down to the pier and... never mind. Fine, I need to get out of this bloody house anyway. I'll see you there.
Nicole: Taylor, it's me.
Taylor: [Sniffing] Come in.
Nicole: So now that it's just the two of us, how are you really doing?
Taylor: Oh, God, Nikki... I've done a terrible thing. [Sighs]
Nathan: I can't just say good-bye, and...
Melanie: You have to.
Nathan: [Mouths] I love you. Sir.
Daniel: Oh, baby, come on. Hey, hey, hey. Come on.
Gabi: Look, I told you. Rafe was in a car accident, and he had a really serious head injury, and... he hasn't been himself since.
Dario: Fine, I get that. The guy gets in a car accident and gets his brains scrambled, but he's not even close to being my real brother.
Gabi: Which is why you coming to Salem could actually help.
Gabi: Look, it's like you said--you two never stop testing each other. But you respected him, and he respected you. Deep down, I mean, you got each other's backs.
Gabi: So come on, you love him and you know it. You can help him get back to normal.
Dario: Didn't you say you had to go pick up a kid to baby-sit him? The one with the eye operation, didn't you say you had to go do that?
Gabi: Yeah. Yeah, I have to go baby-sit Johnny while Mrs. Brady takes Sydney to meet Nicole.
Dario: Like I know these people.
Gabi: You'll learn. Oh, and while I'm gone, can you just please think about what I said? I know that Rafe was hard on you before, but you were the same way to him. Don't forget, you're brothers.
Rafe 2: Hey, great. Thanks for coming.
Rafe 2: Mm.
Rafe 2: Hi. So listen, what I am doing, I am doing for the kids. I'm doing what's best for them.
Sami: Oh, I'm so glad you wanted to talk about that--
Rafe 2: I just was thinking you might hear about what I had to do earlier. And I just wanted you to know, no matter what anyone says, I did it for Johnny, and Will, and Sydney.
Sami: Okay, why don't you tell me what you did?
Rafe 2: It was hard, too. Because, you know, everyone was getting so excited about Dario coming to live with us at the loft. Our place, you know. And that's just--no, 'cause I wouldn't feel right. It wouldn't be safe for the kids. He's in a dark place right now.
Sami: Okay. Okay, I understand.
Rafe 2: Okay, good.
Sami: Well, I'm so glad you wanted to talk about it...
Rafe 2: Don't you have to pick up Johnny at school?
Sami: No. No, he's with Gabi.
Rafe 2: All right, well, I gotta go back to work. I'm just on a short break.
Sami: Oh, okay. Well, we can talk about my thing later. I just really need to make sure we talk about it tonight, okay?
Rafe 2: Okay.
Sami: And I'm sorry about-- I'm sorry about your brother.
Rafe 2: Yeah. Ugh. It hurts, it hurts. You know, but, um... well, what are you gonna do? These things happen, right?
Sami: Yeah, all right. See you later.
Rafe 2: Yeah, see you.
EJ: Well... you certainly know how to handle her.
Rafe 2: Yeah, well, what can I say? They don't get much easier than that, you know? But I do have other problems.
EJ: We all have problems, Rafe.
Nicole: Honey, what is it? What did you do? Talk to me.
Taylor: I, um... I made you think... I made you think that things were good between me and EJ.
Nicole: They're not?
Taylor: No. I mean, um... everything I do when I'm around him, Nicole, the way I react to him... it's all so wrong. It is never gonna work.
Nicole: All right, let's-- let's not make a big deal out of this, okay? Rome wasn't built in a day. And from what I saw downstairs, it looks like EJ's coming around.
Taylor: No, he's not.
Nicole: Yes, he's a slowpoke, all right? He's just a little stubborn. Honey, look, he... he comforted you, didn't he? About the whole mom thing? He's doing his best, okay? Just give him a break. And whatever happened between you two today, it's a good start.
Daniel: So you and Nathan...?
Melanie: Yeah. You don't seem surprised. So Mom told you?
Daniel: Well, your mom tells me nothing.
Daniel: But I've seen you lately, and I've had my suspicions.
Melanie: So you just decided to give me some space?
Melanie: Can I ask you some advice? 'Cause you never steer me wrong.
Melanie: Am I making a mistake?
Daniel: Now, I like Nathan. I like him a lot, I mean... but if it doesn't feel right. Right in here, if you don't have that... you know what I mean? If it's not there, it's just not gonna work in the long run.
Melanie: So I'm doing the right thing.
Daniel: I think so. Okay? We're gonna be okay. You know that?
Melanie: Oh, um... that other thing, I know I've been putting it off. With Philip, that-- but I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna get it. I'm gonna take care of it.
Daniel: That's your call, honey. A divorce is... it's not an easy step.
Melanie: For you, either.
Daniel: Right, yeah. But whatever, you know, you do, and when you decide to do it, I will always, always support you.
Melanie: Thank you.
Daniel: It's okay, baby.
Melanie: Now I gotta go take care of some new things. Everything got complicated. The guy that tried to rob me, it turns out he's Arianna's brother.
Daniel: Yeah, yeah, I heard that. That's actually why I came home on my break, just to see if you were okay. I mean, you gotta be a little confused about what to do, right?
Melanie: No, he needs to go to jail. He's been stealing from tons of people, his little sister, and now I'm worried that because his brother's on the force, he's gonna get a free pass.
Daniel: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down, slow down. All right, Rafe's a good guy. He's not gonna cover up a crime for anyone.
Melanie: He wasn't acting like that at the station.
Daniel: Look, I just talked to Sami. She flat-out said that Rafe's gonna make sure his brother pays the consequences.
Daniel: Really, really. Come on, you know Rafe--he's a straight shooter.
Rafe 2: Okay, so I was totally cool with keeping Rafe's bum of a kid brother out of our apartment, okay? But I'm telling you something, I'm gonna have to deal with this guy one-on-one, okay?
EJ: Then do it. You've seen the background information on Dario, right?
Rafe 2: Right, yeah, exactly. I have seen it. And that's what I'm saying. This guy is not like Gabi. He's up in everyone's business. He's nosy.
EJ: Okay, so you just have to do an excellent job, don't you?
Rafe 2: Okay, yeah. But it'd be a lot easier if you and your dad could just take care of him.
EJ: I'm sure it would be a lot easier if me and my dad could just take care of him. But unfortunately, that's gonna set off far too many alarm bells, okay? Do me a favor. Keep your distance. Let him know you're not interested. He's going to get the message, trust me.
Rafe 2: Mm-hmm.
Gabi: Okay, Johnny, look. This is Dario, Rafe's brother.
Dario: Hey, Johnny, how you doing?
Dario: You know, Gabi's told me a lot about you. She says that you're one brave little guy.
Johnny: Are you a cop like Rafe?
Gabi: No, actually, he's a fantastic magician.
Johnny: You are?
Dario: Well, I didn't bring any big hats or rabbits today, but I do have this magic coin. Pick a hand.
[Johnny and Gabi gasp]
Dario: Where'd it go? Disappeared. Wait, wait. I can see it coming, wait. Wait. [Grunts]
Johnny: Do it again!
Dario: Again? Okay.
Dario: But we can't do it too many times or the magic is gonna wear off. So magic coin, magic coin, where you gonna go to next? [Gasps] Where'd it go?
Taylor: I'm sorry. Sorry, Nicole, you're right.
Nicole: I'm your big sister; I'm always right.
Taylor: Yeah. I mean, you know, living here isn't the best, but at least it's good for Mom. I'm gonna find a way to make it work. I promise.
Nicole: And relax. Before long, we'll all be one, big, happy family.
Justin: Please tell me the boys are still on board.
Adrienne: Oh, are you kidding? Our kids are absolutely thrilled. It's just with their crazy schedules, they won't be able to make it here for the ceremony on the date that we planned.
Adrienne: But... they said they could all be here if we just put it off till December or January.
Justin: No. No, no, no. I can't wait that long.
Adrienne: What do you wanna do?
Justin: Well, we'll just get married. Right away. Just like we planned. And we'll just go visit them, one at a time, on our third honeymoon.
Justin: How's that sound?
Adrienne: I love it. I love it. I love you.
Nathan: [Clears throat]
Daniel: Hey. You on duty soon?
Nathan: No, not for a while.
Nathan: Uh... I was hoping we could talk.
Daniel: Uh, okay, Nathan. Look, man, I'm sorry about what happened. And if you're here to ask me to intercede, that's just not gonna happen.
Nathan: No, fine, whatever. I shouldn't have rushed things. And I should've listened to you.
Daniel: Yeah. Yeah, probably. I mean, it may not make a difference now. I mean, couples sometimes are just-- I don't know, they can't get back to what they had, you know?
Nathan: Yeah, no. But I--I mean, I still think if I hadn't rushed things--
Daniel: Okay, Nathan. Look, dude, you gotta--you just gotta accept what is. You gotta find a way to just move on. You do. I mean, you're a fine doctor, and you're gonna have a great career. I have no doubt, a great career. Don't let it ruin your personal life--obsessing over what might have been or what you're never gonna have, I mean... there's a whole world out there, man.
Daniel: No. See where it takes you. Okay?
Melanie: You didn't mean to. You know, it's not like you meant to bump into me. I mean, who would do that? Besides some low-life street thug trying to take a necklace my mom just gave me to make me feel better. You're good, I guess. But I'm better. Rafe is not gonna let you off. Absolutely not gonna happen. Stupid.
Sami: Hi. Mm, I missed you. Did you have a good time?
Johnny: Yeah, Dario's just like Rafe.
Sami: He is?
Gabi: Oh, Sami, I didn't know where to take him so I brought him here. Is that okay?
Sami: Yeah. Yeah, of course, that's fine. You know, I think Johnny's right. I think you are more like Rafe than you know.
Dario: Yeah, well, don't tell him that.
Sami: Actually, I just came from talking to Rafe, and you gotta know it's killing him that you don't have a place to stay.
Gabi: Oh, yeah? What's he gonna do about it?
Nicole: [Gasps] Hey, it's Brandon. It's my brother, Brandon. Hey, bro, how are you? I'm fine. I'm married, servants, giant house--what could be bad, right? Mom? Well, she's still a little scared I think. But she's doing better. Taylor? Well, she's... Taylor is terrific. And she is loving living in the mansion too. And Brandon, life couldn't be better.
[Tapping on door]
Taylor: Come in. EJ, get out right now.
EJ: Look... I came here to apologize.
Taylor: I don't want your apology.
EJ: What happened earlier was completely inappropriate. And I promise you, on my word of honor, it will not happen again.
Taylor: News flash, EJ, your word doesn't carry a lot of honor.
EJ: Get over yourself, will you? I mean, frankly, it really wasn't what I expected. It was quite disappointing, actually.
Taylor: [Shocked gasp]
Nathan: [Sniffs] Dr. Cooper, please. Dr. Horton. Thank you. Dr. Cooper, hey. I'm good, actually, thank you. Oh, yeah, no, no. I know, I'll keep it short. The reason I'm calling is that fellowship that you offered me. Is it still available, or have I lost my shot at Johns Hopkins?
Melanie: Great, no one's here. Hey--
Taylor: It wasn't what you expected?
EJ: Not really. The good news, however, is that I've managed to completely flush you out of my system.
Taylor: What a relief, EJ, because you were never in mine.
EJ: Good. Well, maybe now we can find a way to coexist, hmm?
Taylor: We both need to do what's right by Nicole. Shut the door on your way out.
Rafe 2: Sami, hey. Hey, where's Johnny?
Sami: He's with Gabi. Same as before. I came by because there's something important I have to talk to you about.
Rafe 2: Sure.
Sami: I know how upset you were about Dario and not being able to help out your brother. And I appreciate you doing it for my kids, of course. But you know, it just--I could just see how much it broke your heart not to be able to let your brother stay with us.
Rafe 2: Yeah. Well, that's the price I gotta pay, I guess.
Sami: Yeah. Now you don't.
Rafe 2: Sorry?
Sami: Well, I talked to Dario. You know, we totally had a heart-to-heart, and I don't know, I had a really good feeling about him, so... I invited him to stay with us. He's probably there now.
On the next “Days of our Lives" --
Rafe 2: What the hell's wrong with you? Who do you think you are?
Vivian: Congratulations. You win.
Dario: You don't know who you're up against.
Rafe 2: Has it occurred to you that maybe there's a reason that I never talk to him?
