Victor: Stefano, there is no point in rehashing all the old--
Stefano: No point in rehashing? My son was lying here...dying. I almost lost him... the way I lost Anthony to members of your family. Will you admit what your grandson has done to my son?
Victor: He was provoked!
Stefano: Yes, and he's got to pay.
Victor: If EJ hadn't--
Stefano: And he will!
Victor: No! Now I want you--
Victor: Maggie, dear god.
Maggie: I tried... to warn you. Oh...
Taylor: Hey. Here we are. Glad I found you since you don't seem to answer your phone anymore, or at least not for me anyway.
Nicole: What now?
Taylor: Look, Nic, I know you don't wanna talk about you and me and where we go from here, but there is something that we could talk about.
Nicole: And that would be...?
Taylor: You and Brady.
Brady: I didn't realize we had an audience.
Sonny: Been looking all over for you guys.
EJ: So let me guess, you boys came here to stop us from killing each other?
Chad: Actually... yeah. But it looks like we, uh, had nothing to worry about.
EJ: On the contrary.
Melanie: Oh, hey, I thought you were off duty.
Daniel: No, I just, uh, have some paperwork to take care of. Uh, what about you? You're not still on duty, are you?
Melanie: No, I--well, I mean they were understaffed and I kinda wanted a distraction.
Daniel: Well, I hear ya, I hear ya.
Melanie: Now I need to find a 24-hour copy store.
Daniel: Huh, what for?
Melanie: Well, I wanna make copies of this artist's sketch of the guy that was last seen with mom. Um, I'm gonna hang it up everywhere because I think he might be our key to finding out where she is.
Daniel: Melanie, it--
Melanie: Please don't tell me that there's no point to doing that, because every second that mom doesn't call--and the pd's already called off the search, so it's up to us to find her.
Daniel: Okay, calm down.
Melanie: It is, dad--
Jennifer: You're right, it is up to us to find her and we need to find her as soon as possible.
Daniel: What, you heard something?
Jennifer: Actually, I have.
Melanie: It's bad, isn't it?
[Cell phone rings]
Carly: Where the hell are they?
Carly: I called you over an hour ago. Everything was set. You said the stuff was on the way.
Hold on a second. It's dr. Manning. She wants more drugs.
Quinn: Then give them to her.
Victor: I've got you. Just hold on, Maggie.
Maggie: [Pained breathing]
Victor: Hold on, stay with me, please.
Victor: You son of a bitch! What have you done?
Jennifer: The photo that was found of Carly on the floor...
Melanie: What about it?
Jennifer: Well, apparently it was seen by the organization that wants to give your mom and dad an award. And the chairperson just called, they're rescinding the award to Carly.
Melanie: That's ridiculous, they can--
Daniel: Shh, listen.
Jennifer: There's more. According to the hospital staff, that photo has now shown up on some gossip website.
Jennifer: Meaning that your mom could lose her job. And then--
Melanie: She'll disappear forever. We can't let that happen. We have to do something.
Daniel: Okay, okay.
Melanie: We have to do something.
Jennifer: Listen, I think I have an idea.
Carly: Hello? Are you there? Hello?
I'm here, I'm here. Relax. I'm gonna get you what you need right away, okay? Just sit tight.
Carly: How long is right away?
[Phone hangs up]
Carly: Hello? Answer me, damn it!
Now there's a woman with a problem.
Quinn: So it seems.
I'm gonna go see her now.
Quinn: Whoa, not yet. There's something I need you to do for me first.
Brady: What the hell are you talking about?
EJ: Being truthful. That's all. Ever since I learned that you were the one who tried to kill me... you don't think I didn't want to return the favor, Brady? Believe me, I wasn't just going to try.
Brady: So this is a trap? Is that what this is? If these gentlemen weren't here right now, you would have tried to kill me? Is that what you're saying?
Maggie: [Pained breathing]
Victor: Maggie. Maggie, hold on.
Stefano: It was only a matter of time anyway with all the enemies you've made. It's a wonder--
Victor: You're the only one who would have done this! Maggie's blood is on your hands!
Stefano: There's been a shooting at the pier, at the chandler entrance. Send an ambulance right away, as fast as possible.
Maggie: [Pained breathing] [Whimpering]
Victor: Hang on, Maggie. Hang on, hang on.
Chad: Okay, EJ, were you really gonna kill Brady? I mean, come on.
EJ: No. I've learned to control my baser instincts. I'm no longer interested in revenge, Brady.
Brady: Am I supposed to buy that?
EJ: There's no reason why you should, you know? I've certainly behaved, uh, reprehensibly in the past.
Brady: Reprehensibly, that's a good word. I'm glad you're willing to acknowledge that having people killed is reprehensible. People like Arianna Hernandez.
Chad: Is that true?
EJ: Look, I never intended for her to die. All right? I was very fond of her, Brady. Nonetheless, I am guilty of setting into motion a series of events which ultimately took her life. And I will regret that until the day I die.
Brady: And that day might have come a while back if it hadn't been for Melanie. If I ever get the chance again, I gotta tell ya, I might have to finish it next time.
Sonny: Brady, come on, man.
EJ: Oh, come on! You're a Kiriakis. Don't be so naive.
Brady: Absolutely. Come on, sonny, I hate the guy. No lying about that, I want him dead. I mean, after all, what he did to Arianna Hernandez and who he is right now, how could I not want the guy dead, right? Come on.
EJ: Okay, all right. Okay, big man. Look... Melanie saved both of us, all right? She gave both of us a second chance. So why don't we just do ourselves a favor. Let's honor that, not waste it. I called you down here today to try and encourage you to join me in stopping this once and for all.
Taylor: I remember a while back you calling me in Romania, and you were in pretty bad shape. Your voice was so shaky that I could barely understand what you were saying, and then finally-- finally I got you to admit that you had been pregnant with EJ's baby and that you miscarried.
Nicole: Don't go there, Taylor.
Taylor: You also told me about Brady, and how he took care of you and he stood by you and that you never would have been able to make it through without him. You also told me that you loved him.
Nicole: That was a long time ago.
Taylor: But you said that, in all of your life, you had never met anyone who cared about you the way Brady did. Who respected you for who you are. What?
Nicole: I am not worthy of his respect.
Taylor: Why would you say that?
Nicole: Because I didn't appreciate what I had with Brady. I was so obsessed about being a mom to a little girl who already had a mom, who didn't need me, whose life I was complicating.
Taylor: Okay, don't trivialize that. You--you loved Sydney with all of your heart.
Nicole: I had no right to love her. I deluded myself into thinking that because--because she was such a huge part of my life and I had to be a part of hers. That's why I left Brady. And yes, you're--you're right. He's the only guy who really cared about me, who respected me. Right? And what do I do? I threw him aside so I could live in the same house with Sydney DiMera, my make-believe daughter.
Taylor: Okay, okay, okay, listen to me. Don't you think that Brady understood that? He was there, Nicole, when you lost the baby. He knew what a void it left in your heart and in your life.
Nicole: I left him to marry his bitter enemy. I shared a bed with a man that he hates more than anything in this world. Why the hell would he understand that?
Taylor: Because. Because he knows how much you regret it and because he loves you. You and Brady belong together. It is as simple as that. And now that Brady doesn't have to worry about EJ anymore, you can have a future. There is nothing stopping you.
Jennifer: All right, Melanie, come here, sweetie, sit down. Sit down right here, all right?
Jennifer: Let me just get you in the right spot here. All right, when I turn the camera on, I just want you to, uh, just talk about your mom's disappearance, okay? And ask the public to help find her, and just say whatever you wanna say.
Jennifer: It's okay, all right? And just tell the truth. Just talk about how incredible your mom is, and she's just in the middle of a crisis and she needs our help.
Melanie: You've--you've done this before?
Jennifer: Yeah, when I was a reporter, and these appeals are really effective, I promise you. Okay, you ready?
Carly: What am I doing? What the hell am I doing?
Melanie: Oh, my god, are you okay?
Carly: I'm okay.
Carly: You saw that picture.
Melanie: I don't care. I don't care about the picture. I just care about you. It's gonna be different now, okay? We're gonna take care of you.
Carly: No, that didn't happen--that was a dream. Nobody knows. They don't know. God. This pain, this pain. Make it stop. God, please make it stop. Please.
Victor: You hear that, Maggie? Help is on the way. Just hang on, darling, hang on. It's gonna be all right. Dear god, why did you have to come down here? [Sighs]
Maggie: I thought I was helping you.
Nicole: No, Taylor, Brady and I, we... we can't go back.
Taylor: He needs you. You're the woman he loves.
Nicole: No, stop saying that. That is not true, not anymore.
Taylor: Well, his reaction told me otherwise.
Nicole: His reaction? What-- you were discussing me with him?
Taylor: Yeah. Why wouldn't I?
Nicole: Because it's none of your damn business. My god, haven't you done enough damage?
Taylor: Damage? I was trying to tell Brady--
Nicole: No, you were trying to run my life because you think you know what's best for me, what's best for everyone. Well, you know what? I am sick of it. You slept with my husband, remember? You gave up the right to give me advice. You gave up the right to pretend you care.
Brady: So you wanna do this to protect your family members. Your brother, your sister, your father. Is that correct?
EJ: Just like you want to do this to protect your grandfather and your family.
Brady: Taylor told me that you changed. I wonder if she's right.
EJ: Actually, no, she's not.
Carly: Hi there. It seems like a beautiful night. Cool breeze.
Quinn: There is, yeah.
Carly: Yeah. I opened the window a little bit, hope you don't mind.
Quinn: I assume you took them?
Carly: I don't know what you're talking about.
Quinn: The pills.
Carly: Uh, I don't know what--
Quinn: I ran into the guy in the hallway--the one walking away from the room. I got worried so I, uh, shook him up a bit, got the truth out of him. Who he was, why he was here.
Carly: Okay, I can explain. I...
Quinn: Just answer my question. Did you take the pills? It doesn't matter if you did. They weren't real.
Carly: What do you mean, they weren't real?
Quinn: Sugar pills.
Quinn: Yeah, he keeps a supply of them on hand luckily.
Carly: You trying to be funny?
Quinn: I'm just telling you the truth.
Carly: Placebos, well, I don't get it. Why would he do that?
Quinn: Why do you think? Because I told him to substitute those for the real thing. He was paid to do so, of course.
Carly: Here, you bastard!
Melanie: Um, hi, mom. Um... dad and I love you so much... and so does Jennifer and everybody at the hospital, and we're just worried about you and we just want you to come back because that's all that matters. Nothing else matters, nothing that--just please come back to us. Um, call that number... and--and just... come back to us please. I love you.
Jennifer: Sweetie, that was perfect. That's all we need. Okay--no, it was great.
Daniel: That was so good, honey.
Melanie: [Cries] But I just want her to come back.
Daniel: I know, I do too. [Whispers] I do too. Thank you, uh, Jennifer. It was a great idea. Thank you.
[Knock on door]
Maxine: Excuse me for interrupting.
Maxine: Dr. Jonas, it's Maggie Horton. They're bringing her in.
Daniel: What? Maggie?
Maxine: She's been shot.
Melanie: What? What?
Daniel: What have we got here?
Gunshot to the upper left hand quadrant. Bullet may be lodged in her lung. Blood pressure is low. Pulse is thready.
Daniel: All right. I, uh, I found the entrance. You guys find an exit?
Daniel: Okay, I'll take it from here. Thank you. Melanie? Melanie, I need a chest tube. Melanie?
Jennifer: Victor? Oh, god. Let me get you a doctor, just--
Victor: No, no, it's not me. I'm not hurt. It's Maggie. They've gotta save her. Could you tell them that they have to save her?
Carly: You think I'm stupid? You think I couldn't tell that those pills were fake?
Quinn: Oh, really? You could tell?
Carly: Yeah, I'm a doctor.
Quinn: Oh, so that's why you didn't take them then.
Carly: Yeah, that's why.
Quinn: So what are they? They the wrong color? The wrong size?
Carly: I'm sorry, am I on the witness stand here?
Quinn: No, I'm just a tad confused, because when I said they were sugar pills you seemed quite stunned.
Carly: Yeah, I was stunned. I was stunned that you're out there conspiring with people to drive me insane!
Quinn: Okay, I got it. So now what? Should I tell the dealer to come back here and take your sugar pills away and give you your actual drugs?
Carly: You are a son of a bitch!
Quinn: I'd watch it with the name-calling, dr. Manning, since I seem to hold all the cards right now.
Carly: No, you don'T. You're just some random jerk that turned up out of nowhere. You mean nothing to me.
Quinn: Random jerk, huh? Well, here's an idea. How about I get the dealer to come back and give you double the dose you asked for and then maybe you can O.D. And this random jerk will just sit back and watch you die.
Carly: It's no joke--this is my life we're talking about.
Quinn: And a life you're squandering.
Carly: How the hell is this your business? It has nothing to do with you!
Quinn: I disagree. You see, I may have turned up out of nowhere, but you're damn lucky I did. I took you in off the street, remember? Does that ring a bell? I let you stay here because you said you wanted to turn your life around. But that was all talk, wasn't it?
Carly: You don't get it. You never will.
Quinn: Try me.
Nicole: What is this, taylor? First you try to steal my husband, and now you're trying to play matchmaker?
Taylor: I want you to have a good life.
Nicole: Oh, okay, if you put it that way.
Taylor: All right, look, I know you have a hard time believing me, but I really--
Nicole: How cynical of me, right? For me to even think that you would have an ulterior motive. But this is actually about taylor, and taylor having a good life.
Taylor: Okay. Okay, fine. Fine, I give up.
Nicole: Good. Stop trying to run interference in my life.
Taylor: You know, all I was trying to do with brady is to tell him to--
Nicole: You told him that he and I should go down to the seaside together and live happily ever after. But you know what? If you knew anything... brady doesn't like to be told what to do, who to love-- what toothpaste to buy.
Taylor: Okay, fine, fine, fine, fine, all right? I blew it--I blew it again. I--I interfered and ruined your life with ej, and now I am ruining your chances with brady because I interfered, all right? I won't do it again, I promise. Never again from now on.
Nicole: Well, good. She finally wises up.
Taylor: Yeah, right. Nicole, you have a good night, okay? See you around.
Brady: So you haven't changed.
Ej: No, it's--
Sonny: So wait, is this meeting with brady really a trap?
Ej: No. Look, what I meant when I said I haven't changed is that i can't just snap my fingers and become a better person, brady, all right? The best that I can do is try.
Brady: And not killing me right now is your way of--
Chad: Oh, come on, brady. He said he's trying.
Ej: Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-- hey, no, no, no, all right? Look, you took your revenge against me for what happened to arianna, okay? Let's end this.
Brady: To protect our families, right? You really are serious, aren't you?
Ej: Brady, come on, we owe this to everybody that we care about! This has to end! It has to end now!
Stefano: Fueled and ready to go. All right, you call me as soon as it's ready. Yes.
[Knock on door]
Marco: Mr. Dimera, I had a clear shot, I swear I did. Victor was going for his gun. I was just trying to protect you and then--
Stefano: I don't wanna hear it! It's over for you, marco.
Maxine: I got it, doc.
Daniel: Melanie, look at me. Look at me, I need you to be strong for maggie's sake. Okay? We need to focus on her. Maggie needs you. Hey! I need you! Come on.
Melanie: She's b-positive for blood.
Daniel: Okay, all right. Just get her four units, stat.
Daniel: Okay. All right, you hang in there, maggie, you hang in there! Okay? We're getting you through this, you hear me? We're getting you through this.
Carly: Why should I tell you anything? I heard you on the phone. I know I'm just a burden to you.
Quinn: Oh, that's not true.
Carly: Well, then you have zero respect for me, that's for sure. Trying to make a fool of me?
Carly: No, why? So you can berate me some more? No thanks.
Quinn: Look, no, I want to apologize for being so harsh. I know you're struggling. I should have shown more compassion. But what I said, it wasn't out of disrespect, I assure you. I'm concerned, that's all. I-I was just trying to get you to see what you're doing to yourself.
Carly: That's a bit presumptuous, don't you think?
Quinn: No, I don't, actually. Now you are staying with me. You're obviously in trouble.
Carly: I'm not staying with you anymore.
Quinn: No, wait, please. Look, I don't consider you a burden, not at all. In fact, if I feel that I can help you, it gives me a sense of purpose.
Carly: Oh, great, I love being someone's cause. That's super.
Quinn: You're not my cause. You're a human being in trouble and... and I care about you. I don't want you to leave. Well, is that what drove you to the edge? Thinking I was trying to get rid of you?
Carly: It's a lot of things. But mostly I realized I put my faith in someone that I hardly know.
Quinn: You didn't have much of a choice, did you?
Taylor: What? Huh? You wanna mock me again?
Nicole: No, just... let me explain myself. All right, look, when you told me you talked to brady about me and us maybe getting back together and I got in your face, it was just a knee-jerk reaction, okay? I'm insecure. For obvious reasons, okay? I got embarrassed because i thought maybe you were trying to push brady back to me.
Taylor: Look, I wasn't pushing.
Nicole: I know, I know, it was just the fact that you were discussing me with him.
Taylor: Okay, okay, you're right and I will never do it again. Okay? Let's just--let's drop it.
Nicole: No, no, no, because the truth is... I would--I would like to know what brady said about me. Okay? So a truce?
Taylor: Yeah. Only if you buy me a drink.
Nicole: Okay, you're on.
Brady: Listen, uh, i appreciate what you did. Dropping everything to come and find me, it means a lot to me.
Sonny: Well, you're family, brady.
Brady: Mm. Well, if there's anything-- anything at all I can do for you, you let me know.
Sonny: Actually, you can.
Stefano: Go to the airport. There is money on the plane. Take it and leave the country. Never come back. Is that clear?
Sonny: All I want is to know from now on that everyone in our family is safe.
Brady: Well, as crazy as it sounds... it might be possible now.
[Cell phone rings] That's Victor. Granddad, what's up?
Ej: Okay, look. I don't mean to be preachy, telling you not to make the same mistakes that I did.
Brady: Why does your father always have to do your dirty work, huh?
Ej: Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa! All right, brady, stop! Okay? Now what are you talking about?
Brady: Maggie horton was shot, ej. I think you know about it.
Brady: Yeah, the bullet was meant for my granddad, right?
Ej: No, no, no, whoa, whoa, whoa, brady. Listen, you've got this all wrong.
Brady: Don't act like you don't know what the hell is going on!
Sonny: Come on, come on! Not here!
Brady: This is not over.
Nicole: That's all brady said?
Taylor: Pretty much.
Nicole: Man, I spent all this money on drinks just to hear what I already know? That the man will make his own decisions?
Taylor: But he didn't tell me to shut up or that I was crazy or anything.
Nicole: Oh, well, how gracious of him.
Taylor: You don't get it, nicole. Look, his saying that he would make his own decision is an indication that there was a decision to be made.
Taylor: Meaning that he hasn't given up on the two of you.
Nicole: You really think so?
Taylor: Yes, I do.
Nicole: Well, I wish I did. Because all I believe right now is that I am the biggest screw-up on god's green earth.
Taylor: Oh, don't say that. Please don't say that.
Nicole: Oh, I have to say that. Listen, if I ever blame you forhing--anything wrong that i did, just tell me to shut up, okay? Because I am the only one to blame for my problems. I am the queen of bad choices.
Taylor: Hmm, I don't know about that. I might have to fight you for that crown.
Nicole: No. No, taylor, I... you fell in love. Okay? And that's--that's never a choice.
[Cell phone rings]
Nicole: Oh, what do you know?
Taylor: Is it brady?
Nicole: Brady, hey. I was just--
Brady: Listen, listen. Maggie is in the hospital.
Brady: I'm on my way there now, she was shot, it was stefano.
Nicole: Oh, my god.
Brady: Listen to me, nicole. You need to get yourself out of the line of fire, whatever you have to do, and I'm serious about that.
Nicole: But the truce, I thought you guys--
Brady: What they called a truce was a setup.
Quinn: You talk about putting your faith into someone you hardly know. Well, I did the same thing. But when you told me about your son... and how he rejected you, that's when I knew I had to help you.
Carly: Because you felt sorry for me?
Quinn: My mother left me when I was just a child. She just walked out. And somewhere, somehow along the line, she became contrite about what she'd done and decided to make amends. Tried to, anyway.
Carly: So your mother, she's back in your life?
Carly: And you've forgiven her? Had a real chip on my shoulder. Oh, the whole bit. Got involved in some, uh, some things that weren't entirely wholesome.
Carly: And now?
Daniel: Okay, we've got her stabilized, but there's a bullet lodged in her chest cavity. We need to perform surgery as soon as possible.
Victor: Well, do what you have to do, but you have to save her. You understand? You have to. I can't lose her, daniel.
Daniel: Now we all love maggie. We're gonna do everything we can.
Melanie: We should probably, um, check you out.
Jennifer: Melanie, it's not his blood.
Victor: No, it's--it's maggie'S.
Melanie: I'm so sorry.
Victor: So am I. I was trying to make peace with stefano.
Melanie: What? I called him, we were about to reconcile all our differences and...maggie just got in the middle.
Melanie: What do you mean?
Victor: She was looking for me, she was... she wanted to protect me.
Melanie: So this is your fault. All of this is your fault. Maggie got shot because of you? This is your fault!
Jennifer: Melanie, melanie.
Brady: Whoa, melanie--
Melanie: Maggie was shot because of you! No, he did it! This is his fault! [Cries]
Brady: Stop, stop, stop.
Stefano: Think. You have to think.
Ej: Is this true? Huh? Was maggie horton shot because of you? Bacon?! Gotta get that bacon!
Quinn: I'm trying.
Carly: You're trying?
Quinn: Mm, not to be so... so angry, so bitter. Which is why I want to be there for you. I see how you're suffering. There's nothing worse than being abandoned by someone you love. But it does get better. It has for me, and it will for you, too.
Carly: I appreciate your faith in me.
Quinn: If you can be strong enough to take your life back, you'll find what you're looking for. And I can help you get there if you'll let me.
Carly: [Cries] I will. Thank you, thank you. Thank you.
Jennifer: Excuse me. Hey, let's go get some water, all right? Come on.
Brady: Can you give us a minute please?
Victor: No, no, he should stay. He's a kiriakis. He should hear this. I tried to broker a peace with stefano. All in the name of keeping you safe.
Brady: Granddad, this is not on you. This is on me. I'm the one that put ej in the hospital. Stefano set you up to get back at me.
Victor: What difference does it make now? If maggie doesn't make it--
Brady: Maggie is gonna make it.
Victor: Well... we were gonna go on a trip around the world. And now...
Brady: The dimeras... how the hell could we not have learned by now?
Taylor: The truce was a setup?
Nicole: Victor was with stefano at the pier and then maggie horton, she showed up and ended up getting shot.
Taylor: No, what?
Nicole: Ej lured brady away so that Victor would be defenseless and of course maggie protected him, but obviously that bullet was meant for Victor.
Taylor: No, no, no, but ej said that he wanted to turn his life around.
Nicole: Oh, stop it, stop it, taylor. He fooled you. He fooled all of us. Mom is dead, and at his hands. And you keep insisting that there is still good in this man. Will you wake up? This man that you believe has changed hasn'T. And he never will.
Stefano: It was an accident--
Ej: I don't wanna hear it!
Stefano: I tell you it was an accident. She must have been following him, all right? It was something I--I can't even explain.
Ej: Why? Why, father? Why can't you just leave it alone?
Daniel: All right, we're taking her to prep for surgery.
Melanie: Maggie? You're gonna be okay. Okay, dad's gonna take care of you.
Maggie: Victor... Victor...
Victor: I'm so sorry, darling.
Maggie: Not your fault.
Nicole: Do not make things worse than they already are.
Ej: I was protecting my family!
Daniel: Paddles! We're losing her.
