Brady: Yeah, it's a real joy. There should be a special circle in hell for hostile board meetings. Listen, if I get that call from Berlin, I want--
Brady: I'll call you back. Mel.
Brady: You're kidding me, right? The hospital's making you care for the guy that tried to kill you?
Melanie: No, no, no, no. No, I'm not his nurse. I'm just... I'm saying good-bye.
Maggie: Last ones. Now all I need is for you, Ciara, to go up to my bedroom, and there's two shopping bags up on the bed. Can you get those for me, sweetheart?
Hope: Don't run, okay, honey? One bag at a time. I really wish you would've waited. I could've helped you carry all this stuff.
Maggie: Oh, I know that. I know that. I just needed-- I needed the exercise. I want you to thank-- I wanna thank you for calling me...asking me to do this. I've been putting it off way too long.
Hope: No. Not too long. Just weren't ready, that's all.
Maggie: You're right. But it is time. And I'm happy that Mickey's clothes are going to something that's a good cause, and so would he be happy. Oh, my goodness gracious. [Chuckles] Would you look at this. I nagged him about a million times to throw this away, and--and now I... I don't wanna let it go.
Hope: Oh, Maggie. Come here, hmm?
Justin: So... I have some good news about Parker, and I think I can help you.
Justin: Now, don't get the wrong impression. I'm still Philip's attorney, and he's family. But Parker's family, too, and the idea of a little boy growing up without any contact with his mother, frankly, I think it'd be very damaging.
Chloe: I agree. Absolutely.
Justin: So this is what I'm gonna do--see if I can get you visitation rights, as long as you can prove that you're capable and responsible.
Chloe: I can. I swear I can. Justin, I would do anything for my little boy.
Nicole: [Sighs] Tsk. Taylor went back to the house. Gee, why? Okay, Taylor, no more games.
Lexie: Hello, Nicole.
Nicole: Hey, Lexie. Uh, you know, I was just talking to Abe. He went off, uh, that way.
Lexie: Actually, I wasn't looking for Abe. I was looking for you.
Nicole: Well, I'm in a hurry, so I'll catch you...
Lexie: What's the rush?
Lexie: Looking to dig up more dirt so you can continue blackmailing my brother?
EJ: Taylor, I...
Taylor: Look, I'm gonna give you one last chance... EJ, once chance to tell me the truth. What does my sister have over you?
EJ: Why would you ask me that?
Taylor: Because I know you are not in love with her. Please, EJ, please, wh-- why did you push me away and turn to her?
Brady: What are you talking about? What do you mean you're saying your good-byes?
Melanie: Well, our, um-- our friend over here did a lot of drugs, apparently, and so his brain is the equivalent of a, uh, moldy sink sponge. So they downgraded him from coma to chronic vegetative state.
Melanie: Yeah. Now they're taking him to a hospice in Otisville. So there's nothing else they can do for him, I guess. I don't know. It's weird, though, right? I mean, he killed Arianna, he tried to kill me, and he's never gonna have to pay for it. And what's worse is... we're never gonna know why he tried to do it.
Nicole: Lexie, I don't know who you've been talking to or what they've been saying...
Lexie: EJ told me. He didn't get into specifics.
Nicole: Of course he didn't.
Lexie: Frankly, I don't wanna know, but it's more than clear that you have decided to turn my brother's life into a living hell.
Nicole: Of course! Everything's my fault!
Lexie: Nicole, I thought that you would've learned your lesson by now. Don't you realize this is all going to blow up in your face?
EJ: I married Nicole for the sake of my children, because I feel that I need to put them first.
Taylor: And I admire that. I respect that. And I also told you you had one chance to tell me the truth, and you just lied. Good-bye.
EJ: No, Taylor, please. Please!
Maggie: And it's not that I wanna keep it. It's, um, it's just...
Hope: I know. You don't want some stranger to have it. Of course.
Maggie: That's it. Yes.
Hope: You know, I was Skyping with Shawn and Belle last night. They're off the Coast of Mexico doing some very intense deep sea fishing. And seeing this hat, I...
Maggie: Do you think that he might?
Hope: Think? Are you kidding me? Shawn would be absolutely honored to wear his Great Uncle Mickey's hat. They'll be coming into the harbor in San Diego tomorrow or the next day. I could overnight it to him there. What do you think?
Maggie: I think that's wonderful, Hope. Thank you. Thank you. Okay.
Justin: Now, don't get your hopes up too high. Visitation's one thing. I don't think there's really that great of a chance for you to regain custody anytime soon.
Chloe: Not after what I did.
Justin: It all depends on what Philip is willing to allow. He's the one with all the money, all the power. He can always hire more attorneys, better attorneys. But if everything goes right, you'll be able to have supervised visitation. How soon? I don't know. But again, it all depends on what Philip is willing to allow.
Chloe: He and Parker are still in Chicago, right?
Justin: Yeah, with round-the-clock nannies who love him very much. He's doing great. So maybe, before too long, you'll be able to see him.
Chloe: That's--that's so wonderful, Justin. Thank you. I don't know how I'll ever be able to thank you.
Justin: Actually, Chloe, there is something you can do.
Melanie: See, I--I know that Arianna was working undercover when she exposed the drug ring that was selling dope all over town, and I know he went to jail for that.
Brady: And he got out, and he wanted revenge.
Melanie: Maybe not.
Brady: What do you mean?
Melanie: [Chuckles] I mean, you don't think that he was actually the brains behind the operation, do you?
Brady: No. No, I mean, he was clearly working for somebody else, but Ari's cover was blown before she got a chance to get a name.
Melanie: So wouldn't it make sense that the person with no name was the one that gave the order to kill Arianna? I mean, he was clearly on so many drugs he couldn't even see straight, but he could take orders. So what would you do if you found out who was giving that order?
Brady: I'd kill him.
Melanie: Exactly. Me too. But now we'll never know.
Melanie: Mm-mm. No, he's a vegetable. He's not gonna say anything.
Brady: Well, I'm gonna still find out. I'm gonna find out, I promise you that.
EJ: Taylor, I could not lie to you. I have not lied to you.
Taylor: Yes, but you won't tell me what kind of a hold Nicole has over you.
Taylor: EJ, when I walked in here earlier, I came to pick up a box of my stuff, and I overheard you and Nicole arguing. And you were talking about the real reason that you are staying married to her.
Taylor: EJ, I know that she is blackmailing you and she is forcing you to do this. She's got you in some kind of a trap. But what I don't understand is why are you letting her?
EJ: You know, I despise myself a little bit more every day for allowing this to happen.
Taylor: Okay, I... why? Just why--why--why-- why would she do this? I mean, did you tell her that you would give her a good settlement and she could still see the kids?
EJ: Maybe she doesn't trust me. Maybe she wants to make sure I never have that kind of power over her again.
Taylor: I see. So she decides. Is that it?
EJ: Taylor, I wish that there was something that I could do.
Taylor: Okay. So I just walk out without knowing. Is that it?
Taylor: God, EJ, just something. Can you give me something? I mean, what is it? What--what--what is it? If Nicole blurted out this dirty little secret of yours, what would happen? Are you gonna go to jail? Are you gonna be ruined? Are you gonna lose your children? Is it so bad that you can never be forgiven?
Hope: Thank you.
Maggie: Mm-hmm. [Chuckles] I always forget something.
Maggie: You know, after Mickey died, I thought I did all the right things. I mean, I didn't make any major decisions for six months. And I talked to family and friends every day to make sure I--I stayed active.
Hope: Maggie, you've been so strong.
Maggie: I try. But it's the grief. It's always there. It comes in waves. It's cliché, I know, but it's true. Some days it's just a few hours. Maybe I'll get through even a day, but then it all comes back to you. It's the reality of what happened. I'm sorry. You know all about that, don't you? All too well. Well, anyway, I keep reminding myself that Mickey would want me to be okay, to have as much joy in my life as possible. But, you know, when someone dies... you realize how fragile your own life is. So you--you wanna make the most out of every single day. So I've tried to... make myself move on, look toward the future. And for a while there I thought I had, but I...
Hope: What? Tell me.
Maggie: Oh, never mind.
Hope: That you may be able to find love again? Is that what you were going to say?
Maggie: Mm-hmm. I was, yeah. But, you know, I just realized recently that that's never gonna happen. [Sighs] Mickey was the love of my life. And the idea of even loving someone else, even thinking about it, it's just wrong, disloyal. And so I just focus on what I have--great friends... and beautiful memories.
Hope: Oh, Maggie.
Maggie: [Sighing] Oh, that's really all I need.
Victor: Oh, Melanie, do you have the transcript for the latest board meeting? I need to make some notes for the fundraising committee.
Melanie: I do. It's, um-- it's one of our bestsellers.
Victor: [Chuckles] Thank you. I assume that everything is back to normal with you and Maggie?
Victor: Oh, well, perhaps I should stay out of it. I just thought that since Chloe had moved out that the--
Melanie: Uh, Chloe moved out?
Victor: Yes. Maggie didn't tell you?
Melanie: No. I guess she figured it wasn't important enough to call me.
Victor: Well, now you know.
Justin: Chloe, sit down. Look, I know you've had a rough time, but, I mean, it wasn't that long ago that you were so depressed that you didn't even think life was worth living.
Chloe: Believe me, I remember. You know what the worst memory is? Not that I tried to drown myself, but that I left Parker alone in the freezing weather. The fact that I put my baby's life in danger, that's the horrible, unforgivable part.
Justin: Chloe, Parker was okay. And you've made it back. Look, I know losing Daniel was heartbreaking. And then for Philip and Parker to suddenly disappear from your life must've been devastating. I completely understand. But if you really wanna thank me, you have to hang tough, you have to work hard, take your meds, continue therapy. Now, can you promise me you'll do all that?
Justin: Listen... my phone is always on. Just call me if you need anything.
Chloe: Thank you, Justin. Thank you so much.
Justin: You're very welcome. Good luck.
Quinn: Oh, hey! We gotta stop meeting like this.
Lexie: I've known you for a while now. I know how tough you had it growing up. And recently losing your mother, which was very hard on you, I'm sure.
Nicole: Your point?
Lexie: What happens if this all goes wrong and you end up losing Sydney too? Oh, hey, what if it goes right? What if you are the winner? EJ is miserable. And Sydney? Well, Sydney grows up in a household filled with hatred. Your childhood was nothing but bad memories, Nicole. Is that really what you want for Sydney too?
Nicole: Well, I guess you've got it all figured out, don't you?
Lexie: [Scoffs] Nicole, you can have everything right now, okay? You can be happy with someone who truly loves you and still spend as much time with Sydney as you'd like. But where you are headed right now, it's a very dark, miserable place. I think you know that deep down. You are going to end up way in over your head, Nicole. You're gonna lose everything.
EJ: I think you're aware of the fact that I've done some things in my life I'm not very proud of.
Taylor: And that's-- that's all you can say? Come on, EJ, give me something. What does Nicky have on you? Please tell me the truth or just set me free.
EJ: All right. I will.
Quinn: It's kind of amazing, huh, that we meet again in the same ol' place?
Quinn: So I guess this means you weren't completely put off by what happened here before, not to mention after that.
Chloe: Look, uh, I told you-- I'm not upset with you anymore. We were both pretty bombed, and it's no one's fault. It just happened.
Quinn: One-time thing. Too much to drink. [Chuckles] Got it. Enough said.
Chloe: Good, because, frankly, I don't wanna be here right now.
Quinn: Oh, sorry to hear that. Myself, I stopped by to, um...
Chloe: Pick up some other woman?
Quinn: No. [Chuckles] To have a glass of wine and check my messages. And now here you are, sort of like kismet, don't you think, us bumping into each other like this?
Hope: Maggie, what... this is absolutely stunning. What are you doing giving this away? Oh, my gosh, and the tags, they're still on it. You haven't even worn this.
Maggie: I bought it for the cruise, the one that Mickey and I never got to take.
Hope: Oh, Maggie, I'm sorry.
Maggie: No, no. You know what? It might as well go to someone who can use it, 'cause I never will. No, I never will.
Hope: You know, Maggie, um-- you know, just because a person's known love and had such a full life and so many beautiful memories... doesn't mean that love can't come around a second time.
Maggie: I'm sure it can, but not for me.
Hope: Why do you say that? You're Maggie. You can't give up.
Maggie: Well, if you're talking about Victor, I'm not the one that did.
Hope: What? Victor?
Brady: Granddad, you got a minute? I, uh, got a proposition for you.
Victor: I'm all out of corporations for you to steal, Brady.
Brady: I'm dead serious. You remember I told you there was no way in hell I'd ever give you Titan back, right?
Victor: Yes, that rings a bell.
Brady: Perhaps I miss-poke.
Victor: I'm listening.
Brady: Not that Titan isn't running wonderfully, by the way. Quite legitimately we're humming along, but there are a few old-timers that miss your voice on some of the conference calls.
Victor: [Chuckles] And?
Brady: I've decided I'm gonna return a sizable chunk of Titan stock back to you if you give me a big piece of important information.
Taylor: You'll what? You'll tell me the truth, or you'll set me free?
EJ: I think you'll have to be the judge of that. [Sighs] You know what? To hell with Nicole. To hell with everything. You deserve to know who I am. You deserve to know what I've done. The thing that Nicole has over me...
Nicole: Honey, I'm home!
[ Wind blowing ]
Hope: So you really are seeing Victor.
Maggie: Had--had--had been. Past tense. For some reason, I thought you knew.
Hope: Sort of been out of the loop, obviously, right?
Maggie: Well, see, then it's just as well that you didn't know.
Hope: Maggie, I'm just trying to get my head around this. Was it a serious relationship?
Maggie: Surprised? Yes. Well...at least I thought that it might be serious at some point. But no. It was mostly me giving him a hard time, teasing him mercilessly about his curmudgeonliness.
Maggie: Whatever. Is that a word?
Hope: It is now.
Maggie: Oh, you know, most people probably don't know that other Victor, that one who sometimes peeks out from behind that iron--that iron mask that he always wears.
Hope: Mm-hmm. Well, you know what, I've seen that other Victor.
Maggie: You have?
Hope: Yeah, many times.
Maggie: Well, it was that other Victor that kept showing up here a couple months ago. First it was just to help me with the foundation in-- in Mickey's honor... and then it was just to talk, and a cup of coffee, and a couple of jokes. It was really comforting to me. I actually thought, against my better judgment, that something might be possible. But it's all moot now.
Hope: Why? Because you think that Victor's given up on you?
Maggie: Oh, I know. [Chuckles] He pretty much told me flat out that, um, I had certain standards of conduct that were just too high.
Maggie: So we argued about that, and finally... that was the end. Oh, my goodness! My big, strong girl! My gracious! Do you know how helpful you've been to me today, Ciara? I wanna thank you so much.
Ciara: We're going to Grandpa Victor's next! He's got lots of old clothes for us. Wanna come?
Maggie: Well, um, I thank you, sweetheart, but I don't think I can do that today. But you be sure and give your Grandpa Victor a big hug, okay?
Hope: Maybe some other time.
Maggie: Yes, we'll see.
Victor: [Clears throat]
Brady: So you're at least considering my offer then.
Victor: I said I'd listen. That's a long way from saying yes. So what is this information you need so badly?
Brady: You remember when I was dating Arianna Hernandez? She was working undercover to bust up the drug ring here in Salem.
Victor: Oh, that goes back a ways.
Brady: Yeah, it was the operation that you sold to someone else.
Victor: Is there some reason for dredging up this ancient history?
Brady: Mm-hmm. I wanna know who you sold it to.
Victor: Why would I tell you that?
Brady: Because you built Titan from scratch. You wanna be a part of it again or not?
Maggie: Melanie! Come in!
Melanie: Hey, um, you-- uh, you don't mind that I'm here, do you?
Maggie: No, it's fine.
Maggie: How've you been?
Melanie: Good. Yeah, I mean, you know, this and that.
Maggie: Right. Uh, can I get you something to drink--coffee or tea?
Melanie: Uh, no. That's-- no. Um, Chloe moved out?
Maggie: Mm-hmm. She felt she needed time on her own.
Melanie: When were you gonna tell me this?
Chloe: I have to go.
Quinn: No, one minute. Come on. We both know you didn't have sex with me for the money. We settled that. And I can't tell you how sorry I am about... misreading what was going on.
Chloe: You apologized already. Let's just forget it.
Quinn: I can't. See, I feel so stupid and insensitive hurting your feelings like that.
Chloe: It's okay. I'm over it.
Quinn: Look, if I could turn back the clock and make it so last night never happened... would you be interested in one thing I wanna ask?
Nicole: Hey, Taylor. You're back again. [Chuckles] I'm sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt.
Taylor: No. Um, I was just leaving.
Nicole: All right, well, let me walk you to the door.
Nicole: I'll see you later.
Nicole: Tsk. Gee, I hope it wasn't something I said.
Chloe: Quinn, look, uh, I would do anything to get last night out of my mind, and I--I know you said you're sorry. I am too. Believe me, it's-- it's fine. It's okay. Let's just drop it. We're done.
Quinn: Uh, just one minute. One. Let's just say no money was involved. All that happened was you made love to a guy you just met. You know, it was someone you were attracted to who-- who seemed to get you. A fun guy. Kind of handsome, right?
Chloe: [Chuckles] Kind of.
Quinn: Well, see, that wouldn't be such a bad thing, right?
Chloe: I suppose not.
Quinn: Good. Now, how about I take you out to dinner? A real date. No strings.
Melanie: I haven't, uh-- I haven't stopped by 'cause I didn't wanna run into Chloe.
Maggie: Yeah. I know you're having a hard time forgiving her for what she did to you and your dad.
Melanie: Okay, but Chloe moved out, and you're obviously still mad at me. Otherwise you would've told me.
Maggie: Oh, no, sweetheart. Now, listen. I tried to get you to stop saying hurtful things to Chloe, yes. But I was never mad at you. I--I understand how this is so very fraught for you. And the only reason that I haven't called you is because it really just happened a little while ago.
Melanie: [Sighs] Shoot.
Melanie: Um, I over-reacted. It's just because I know you want me to be a better person, and I try. It's just, when I mess up, I always feel awful.
Maggie: Wait a minute. What are you talking about?
Melanie: Well, you wanted me to forgive Chloe, and I couldn't, so I just figured that you were disappointed in me. And then I started feeling bad and stupid and beating myself up, especially since you're the best person I've ever known.
Maggie: Oh, Melanie. [Crying] I love you so much.
Melanie: [Sighs] I love you too.
Victor: If this is about that drug dealer who allegedly ran down your ex-girlfriend...
Brady: Look, I know you never gave a damn about Arianna alive or dead...
Victor: All I'm saying is if this is about avenging a woman...
Brady: It's a simple question. I need a simple answer. I promise I will keep your name out of it. But I need to know who you sold the drug operation to when you got out of the business.
Victor: And in return you'll give me controlling interest of Titan.
Brady: I didn't say controlling. I said a sizable chunk, but you will have your hand in the company.
Victor: I have your word.
Brady: You have my word. Now, who was it?
Victor: [Sighs] EJ DiMera.
Nicole: That was weird, wasn't it? Taylor coming back yet again. Um, I know you must hate it, her bothering you all the time. I apologize. Can you forgive her?
EJ: Nicole, there's really no apology necessary.
Nicole: Well, that's very sweet. So what were you two talking about when I came in?
EJ: Taylor and I, we were talking about us. You know...you and me.
EJ: Meaning she seemed to overhear the conversation that we had earlier. She knows that you're blackmailing me into staying in this marriage.
Quinn: Why would I wanna take you out to dinner? Because I feel bad about what I did, what I assumed, and I wanna make it up to you. I--I think you're special. I really do.
Chloe: I'm not, believe me.
Quinn: I'll bet I can prove you wrong. One dinner. Come on. Look, give me your number, and I'll arrange for a table at a nice restaurant. Very public. Two hours tops. Chloe... let me prove I can be more than a bad memory. Please.
Chloe: I guess I owe you that.
Quinn: Great. You won't be sorry, I promise.
Chloe: I'd better not be.
Melanie: I miss seeing you.
Maggie: Not half as much as I've missed you. Now, now that that's all behind us, right...
Maggie: Now you know that I was never angry at you.
Melanie: Okay. Good thing I talked to Victor.
Melanie: Yeah. He's the one that gave me the kick in the butt to come over here and talk to you.
Maggie: Hmm, did he...
[Door slams shut]
Victor: Well, then get your ass in gear and get it done! When I come into that office tomorrow morning, I wanna see every-- well, look who's here!
Ciara: Hi, Grandpa Victor.
Victor: Hi, my sweet Ciara. Can I have a hug? Ah, boy! Hope, nice to see you.
Hope: You too. We came by to pick up those clothes you promised.
Victor: Oh, absolutely. I'll have Henderson bring 'em down. But before that, I think I have something that my grand-daughter might like. It's been sitting here by my desk for almost two weeks now.
Ciara: Oh, wow! Thank you, Grandpa!
Victor: Oh, you're more than welcome, sweetheart. And when you come up with a name for her, you let me know, okay?
Ciara: I'm gonna name her "Maggie."
Hope: We just came from seeing her. You know, uh, she didn't seem like her usual chipper self, Victor.
Victor: Oh, that's too bad.
Hope: Yeah. I was really hoping that she'd come over here with us, but it was obvious that she didn't want to.
Victor: [Sighs] Yes, I'm sure it was.
Nicole: What do you mean my sister knows exactly what I'm up to? What the hell did you say to her, EJ?
EJ: [Sighs] I didn't say anything, but I can certainly hardly deny what she overheard. She knows you're blackmailing me into staying married to you.
Nicole: That's why she took off like a shot. Great.
EJ: Mm-hmm. It is rather, isn't it?
Nicole: Tell me something, EJ. Why are you and my sister having such an honest, intimate conversation about our marriage? She can't stand you, and you think she's a pain in the ass, right?
EJ: Relax, Nicky. She doesn't know all the sordid details. What she heard was vague enough. She doesn't know about Rafe.
Nicole: Good. Because if my sister... finds out what you did to Rafe, she's gonna go straight to Sami and then the police, and then it will be over for you, my dear husband.
EJ: It will be over for both of us. Or are you so stupid you don't quite realize that?
[Door slams shut]
Taylor: Hey, Brady. Hey. Are you okay?
Brady: [Sighs] I--I just got some information, and I don't know how to handle it.
Taylor: Makes two of us.
Brady: What happened to you?
Taylor: Oh, I just got into it with my brother-in-law again, that's all, and it wasn't very pea .
Brady: You know, I've told you this before, and I'm gonna tell you one more time. You need to listen to me, okay? You stay away from EJ. You stay away as far as possible. Do you understand what I'm saying to you? Just stay away from him.
Taylor: All right. You're acting a little intense right now, Brady. What's the matter?
Brady: Well, I just found out that EJ killed the woman that I loved.
On the next “Days or Our Lives...”
Victor: I can never be the man you want me to be.
Stefano: At the hell is the matter with you?
Brady: It looks like EJ is gonna get away with murder.
