Hope: Hey, Lex...
Lex: Oh, Hope. Thanks for coming so quickly.
Hope: Yeah, why did you wanna see me? How's Maggie doing? She doing better?
Lexie: I'm afraid not. I need you to sign some papers.
Hope: What kind of papers?
Lexie: You are Maggie's durable power of attorney. She has a D.N.R.
Hope: Oh, my God, no. Do not resuscitate.
Lexie: We have take her off the ventilator.
Hope: No. [Cries]
Carly: I've made terrible, terrible mistakes. And I need your help. All of you.
Melanie: Of course. Mom, of course.
Jennifer: We will help you. We will help you with whatever you need, Carly.
Daniel: We're just happy you're back.
Carly: I am too. And I wouldn't have come back if it weren't for... Quinn? Someone that's been helping me for a while. He brought me here, and I thought he was right behind me, but he's gone.
Melanie: Who is he?
Carly: Someone who wanted nothing from me except to help me get better.
Vivian: Don't call me Mother, you miserable excuse for a son.
Justin: Uh, you may wanna hold off of that cocktail until I leave.
Brady: Meaning what?
Justin: Meaning... for once in your life, you're gonna listen to me, Brady...
Taylor: Did you follow me here?
Nicole: Does it matter?
Taylor: Can I have a drink in peace, please?
Nicole: Brady was protecting his interests.
Taylor: By having Chad DiMera shot?
Taylor: I don't know all the details, okay? But it's looking to me like a glaring mistake. No, it is looking to me like an unforgivable one.
Nicole: Knock it off, Taylor. You can pull your self-righteous crap with people who don't know the real you, but not with me, okay? Not with me.
Chad: I know it's hard. I mean, I've fought it for weeks. I but you can get out of this, EJ.
EJ: "This." You mean the family?
Chad: Look at me. I was shot today by someone who was probably hoping I was you. It could've been Abigail, it could've been Taylor, it could've been your kids. Maggie's in the other room right now in critical condition. I mean, my head was almost blown off... I mean, who's next, EJ? And for what?
Victor: Ready? Now that Maggie's lying here, now that your sons have been hurt, you wanna know if I'm ready to end the war?
Stefano: What else is there to prove, Victor?
Stefano: Well, so then you agree? We put an end to this. Once and for all.
Victor: No, Stefano. It's too late. It's much too late.
Lexie: These are Maggie's wishes, Hope. She asked you to ensure that they're carried out.
Hope: I don't have a choice, do I?
Lexie: I am so sorry.
Stefano: I think you should reconsider this, Victor. So that we can make sure there's never a possibility that this could happen again. Victor... an eye for an eye does not work.
Kate: Stefano's right, Victor. Listen to him.
[Vivian slaps Quinn across the face]
Quinn: What the hell is wrong with you?
Vivian: Me? Me?
Quinn: What is it you think--
Vivian: No, there's no guesswork involved here. I saw you with her. You saved the woman you told me you'd help me destroy.
Quinn: Look, Mother--
Victor: No equivocations, you swine! She murdered your cousin. I stood in front of his memorial and swore vengeance against her. You told me you'd help me. How could you do this to me?
Carly: I know how worried you've been. I saw you on TV, and I feel terrible that you were so scared for me.
Melanie: Stop, please. You're home now.
Carly: I put everything at m risk. My relationships with all of you, my career...
Jennifer: Wait, it's okay. Listen, we're gonna help you, and gonna help you get your career back, do you hear me?
Carly: [Laughing] Mm, I can imagine what Lexie's saying.
Daniel: Okay, one thing at a time, okay? One day at a time.
Carly: It wasn't me. Okay, I was...strung out. And I was so in denial that I didn't even remember running away from you until I came off the pills.
Melanie: [Sighs] Mom.
Carly: Then I saw you on TV, and I realized that there was no secret. There was no secret anymore. And then I remembered that night, and I remembered how hard all of you tried to help me.
Daniel: Where did you go?
Carly: I went somewhere to think. And that's where my friend found me. And he gave me the courage to realize that I had to go to rehab. But first I had to come home and I had to see all of you.
Daniel: I'm sorry. I wish he would've come in with you.
Carly: I wish he would've come in...too. I know, I know. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
EJ: Look... the two of you are traumatized. Obviously, I understand.
Chad: I tried to make this my family, EJ. I mean, I really did. Look at us. Is this how you wanna live your life... looking over your shoulder every night and day? Cringing every time the phone rings? Wondering if it's more bad news about me? Or Taylor, the kids, or father?
EJ: No. That's not what I want.
Chad: Then let's walk away from this... before it kills one of us.
EJ: We will protect you.
EJ: Because you're family, Chad. You're my brother. But let me tell you something. I've been my father's son a lot longer than I've been your brother. So don't ask me to choose.
Victor: There's no point in trying to broker a peace that is in name only.
Kate: It's more than in name only. After everything that's happened to both of our families, I am not going to sit back and just wait to see whose wake I'm going to be attending.
Lexie: [Sighs] I called Hope in because we have Maggie's living will on record here. Hope is the durable power of attorney.
Victor: What are you talking about?
Hope: It's not my choice, Victor. It's Maggie's. She was very specific in her will. We have no choice but to honor it.
Nicole: I'm serious, Taylor. You can walk around Salem and be a hypocrite, but it won't float with me, and you know it.
Taylor: Okay, I am not a walking hypocrite.
Nicole: You wanna go down this road, Taylor? Really?
Taylor: Okay, Brady beat EJ unconscious.
Nicole: Which you helped him keep quiet.
Taylor: EJ could've retaliated a dozen times, a dozen times. But he decided to take the high road instead--
Nicole: The high road? The place where the man responsible for Mom's death rides his trike?
Taylor: Okay. All right, you know that I will not forget EJ's part in it, but he has taken more than his fair share of the blame for it.
Nicole: More than his fair share? You are so deluded!
Taylor: I am? What about you? You have been whispering in Brady's ear to go after EJ.
Nicole: Excuse me, that is not true.
Taylor: It's not true? Oh, it's not true? What, and it's probably not fair either, right? Nicole, this ridiculous blood war is going on because of one person. And that one person is you.
Brady: And what am I going to listen to you for? About what?
Justin: Son told me that you tried to make peace with EJ.
Brady: I did. I got played on it, though.
Justin: Do you listen to talk radio? Do you have any idea how much this family is being mentioned in the news in this town? And how quickly that's going to just go nationwide?
Brady: What, are you worried about, bad publicity? Since when, Justin?
Justin: I'm worried about my family.
Brady: Your...your family? Well, that's funny, because I thought it was our family. I thought we were all Kiriakis. Isn't that our family, Justin?
Justin: Yes, we are. And while my uncle isn't necessarily make me think of family reunions and barbecues, I can guarantee this is not what he wanted. This, all of this, is between you and EJ.
Brady: Yeah, well, why don't you stick your nose out of things that you don't understand, how about that?
Justin: And why don't you stop trying to act like you understand anything about how my uncle, Uncle Victor, does business. You need to back down, Brady. You're no Michael Corleone. Just get out while the getting is good.
Brady: No offense. Don't take offense to this, but don't you kiss my ass? I'm not backing down for anybody.
Chad: Thanks. EJ... it means a lot to me that you think of me as your brother. I feel the same way too.
EJ: If you believe that we're family, then we need to stay together like a family.
Chad: You know, I just don't get you. Before this all happened, you were telling me to stay away from the family while I still had a chance--
EJ: Before it happened. Before you were shot. Idealism, Chad, can be just as misguided as realism--you'll do well to remember that. Anyway, the two of you are safe. [Pats Chad twice]
Victor: We can challenge this in court. We can at least get a delay. God, this can't be happening.
Hope: Can I have a few moments alone with Victor, please?
Lexie: Yeah, of course.
Hope: This is so unbelievable. [Sniffs] I can't even process it. I'll give you a few moments alone with her, Victor. I you love her. You made her very happy. [Crying] I love you, Maggie.
Victor: I tried to shield you from this. I was naive to think that I could. It too high a cost. It's too high.
Hope: [Sighs] I spoke to Melissa.
Lexie: It's time. It
Kate: I am so sorry.
Stefano: Not nearly as sorry as I will always be, Katherine.
Victor: [Stutters] What do you do?
Lexie: I remove the breathing tube, and then... we wait. I need you both to step outside for a moment.
Kate: There's a chance that she's going to be able to breathe on her own.
Victor: And there's a chance that she won't.
Stefano: I'm very sorry, Victor.
Victor: Are you?
Stefano: Yes. And I know how upset you are. But I mean, to refuse a peace offering just out-of-hand...
Victor: The woman that I love is dying. Your peace offering and reassurance of safety is the last thing I care about now, Stefano.
Quinn: First of all, you have to understand the situation that led to my helping Carly.
Vivian: Do I really?
Quinn: Look, she doesn't seem to be the monster you made her out to be. She's a woman with an addiction, and she was struggling terribly with it. Look, I felt it was the right thing to do to help her.
Vivian: Does she know who you are?
Quinn: No, of course not. Ma, she needed saving.
Vivian: She killed your cousin.
Quinn: And did it ever occur to you that things happen for a reason?
Vivian: Meaning what?
Quinn: That maybe it was fate that brought Carly to me. And maybe it was my fate to do the right thing for once.
Daniel: Carly, maybe you should wait a few days before checking yourself in to rehab.
Daniel: You've gone through hell. You're still detoxing. Just let us help you get your strength back, and then we'll see about going somewhere.
Carly: I don't think I can wait.
Melanie: Yeah, I don't-- a-are you afraid you're gonna use again?
Carly: [Chuckles] Just something about coming back and trying to find a life with all of you...again. I wasn't ready it's me, my fault. Me. I, um... I was trying to make up for the time I lost with Lawrence and the family I didn't get with Nicky. And I didn't realize or see that just by trying to put all these little puzzle pieces together with all of you when you have your own lives and your own feelings and a new relationship.... just--everything got mixed up in my head. And once it started, it just, it couldn't stop.
Melanie: But it did stop. You stopped. You're stronger than you're giving yourself credit for.
Carly: I don't feel very strong.
Jennifer: Listen to me, you are strong. Look at me. You are not going through this alone. I promise you.
Melanie: Yeah, I have a social worker friend that I can call and get some rehab names.
Jennifer: Yeah, I had looked into some places previously, you know that.
Melanie: Yeah, we'll find a place that's really close by so we can visit all the time.
Carly: Okay, I'd like that.
Melanie: Okay, um, will you just give me a minute?
Carly: Okay. You two are fine, right? I didn't mess that up, right?
Jennifer: Stop. You worry about you right now.
Daniel: All right, you let all three of us take care of you. It is going to get better. Come on. It already has.
Carly: God, I hope so.
Abigail: You know, you were pretty amazing with your brother just now.
Chad: I don't think it made a bit of difference.
Abigail: Chad... listen, I know that I've been the one whispering in your ear that you should walk away from your family. But you've been caught in the middle, and it's not fair.
Chad: But before today, I didn't almost lose you. I keep thinking... that I can handle this. I kept thinking I could stay out of it all but... someone shot at me today thinking I was EJ, and you were right next to me. Everything changed today, Abigail. Everything.
Abigail: So then you were really serious when you were talking to your brother about getting out while you still can, right? You really think you can do that?
Chad: You know, Victor's with Maggie right now. He's been with her ever since she was hit by mistake. I don't ever want that for me and you.
Hope: [Crying] No, no.
Victor: Maggie, please don't go. Maggie...no.
EJ: Is that true? About Maggie? Father, have you tried to talk to Victor?
Stefano: Doesn't matter now. Nothing does.
Lexie: I believe she's gone.
Lexie: Oh, my God, she's... she's breathing on her own.
Hope: Oh, my God.
Victor: It's okay.
Victor: It's okay, darling. I'm here, everything's gonna be all right now.:
Hope: Is this real? Is she really breathing?
Lexie: Yeah, it's real, I can't believe it.
Hope: I have to call everyone. This is real, she's breathing.
Lexie: It's real.
Lexie: I have to order some tests. Oh, my God, I can't believe it, Victor!
Victor: I know!
Lexie: Oh, my God.
Victor: Everything's gonna be all right now, darling. No one is gonna hurt you again. I promise.
Maggie: [Moans softly]
Nicole: How the hell is this my fault?
Taylor: Okay, well, what I do know is that EJ has tried change. Has Brady? Not with you by his side.
Nicole: Oh. [Scoffs]
Justin: I know you're full of yourself, Brady. Especially now. But I can tell you, this posturing isn't going to stop the insanity between the families.
Brady: Will you just stay out of things that you don't understand? Do yourself a favor.
Justin: Really? You?
Justin: Because you are the image of clarity? The way you run your life? The amount of liquor you consume? The way you allow yourself to be led around by the nose by someone like Nicole.
Brady: Oh. There it was. You saved that one for last, didn't you? Ooh.
Justin: Brady, am I wrong?
Brady: Let me tell you something. Nicole has nothing to do with the operations of this family. I run Titan alone. That's the way it is.
Justin: You can't even admit, for the sake of debate, how that woman's agenda is gonna bring you down, is gonna cost us.
Brady: You need to stop talking.
Justin: May as well, for all the good it's doing. You're as thick as they come, Brady.
Brady: Thank you. Thanks for stopping by. It was fun.
Justin: And if anyone I love gets hurt... you need to think about who matters to you. You need to think about your family before you make another stupid move and it blows up in your face. Will you promise me that?
[Brady mouthing words]
Stefano: Good... I've gotta get you home, Chad. I will not feel right until I have you and your brother safely in the house.
Chad: Well, I can't speak for EJ... but I'm not going home with you.
Stefano: Listen to me on this, would you please? Because it still is not safe, all right? Now, I have a lot more information than you do. I'm telling you that this thing is not over yet.
Chad: Which is probably the biggest reason why I can't be there.
Chad: I can't live with you anymore.
Kate: Chad, we know this is upsetting for you.
Chad: I was shot. Abigail could've been shot, too. Her aunt is in this hospital somewhere barely alive. And I just don't know how else to say this... but I'm done.
Victor: Maggie, can you hear me? Just in case you can, there's something I want you to know. I love you. I love you so much. Maggie! It's all right, I'm right here. Oh! It's so great to see your eyes again. You can hear me, can't you? What is it, darling? What are you trying to say?
Maggie: [Raspy breathing] I love you, Victor.
Vivian: You need to feel better about yourself, is that it? So you use my mortal enemy to make yourself feel better?
Quinn: Carly was there in part because of me. Because of one of the ways I've chosen to make my living. And all at once, I felt that I owed it to her. Look, if not to her, to everyone else that I've harmed over the years because of my greed and my selfishness. I owed it to her to save her.
Vivian: This is outrageous.
Quinn: Unlike letting someone die alone in an alley?
Vivian: Of all the people on the planet that you choose to save, it's Carly Manning.
Quinn: This conversation is over.
Vivian: [Scoffs] How...how am I supposed to avenge Lawrence's death? I have been working on this for a very long time. How am I gonna make it happen now?
Quinn: You already have, Mother.
Melanie: Okay, I have the name of the best rehab center within, like, 100 miles. And my friend pulled some strings, and they have a room.
Carly: Wow. Well, I've checked about a half dozen patients into this place myself.
Daniel: Well, I mean, how soon is she really gonna be able to check in?
Melanie: Tonight. They want her to come in tonight.
Carly: Okay. Well, then I can to go back to my room and organize a few things.
Melanie: Okay, I'll come with you.
Carly: You don't have to do--
Melanie: Please don't. I don't want you to do this alone, okay? I'm coming with you.
[Cell phone ringing]
Jennifer: Oh, I'm so sorry. Excuse me, I have to take this.
Daniel: No, go, go, go.
Jennifer: I'm sorry.
Carly: I'm so sorry for what I've put you through.
Daniel: No, stop. Stop being sorry and just get better. We love you. All of us do.
Daniel: Okay, now you just call me as soon as she gets in, all right? Will you call me right away?
Carly: Come on.
Melanie: Okay, okay. Let's go, Mom.
Jennifer: Hey. She woke up.
Daniel: Hmm, what?
Jennifer: Aunt Maggie woke up. She's breathing on her own.
Daniel: Ah, wow. That's awesome.
Jennifer: Everything's great. Everything is so great again.
Steno: Chad... we are your family. You can't undo that.
Chad: I saw you disown EJ a few weeks ago without too much trouble.
Stefano: [Scoffs] I was very angry, but it's been repaired.
Chad: You can't repair this. Or what happened to Aunt Maggie, or what could've happened to Abigail. I will not put her in the line of fire.
Stefano: What the... where the... where are you going to go?
Chad: I don't know. I just know that I can't be a part of this life.
Stefano: [Chuckles] Do you have any idea... how frightened I was when I heard that you got shot? My God, I thought I lost you.
Chad: You'll have less chance of worrying about me if I'm not part of the family. I'll be by for the rest of my things as soon as I can.
Kate: [Softly] God.
EJ: Where's Father going out there?
Kate: He went after Chad.
EJ: He went after Chad?
Kate: Chad is moving out of the house--he wants nothing more to do with any of us.
EJ: I'll go and talk to him.
Kate: If your father loses Chad, I don't think he's gonna survive it.
Stefano: Elvis. Chad...
EJ: Yeah. I know, Kate told me. He'll be fine. We will get through this. Together.
Vivian: I don't understand something. You think I've won? Carly is in the bosom of her family, off drugs. My son, who I trusted with every part of my being, has betrayed me. What have I won?
Quinn: Do you know who I dropped off to her family tonight? A broken woman who resorted to desperate means just to find a high, who may have lost her job and her license to do what she does best. And I may have lost her as well. Consider your revenge in that, good mother.
Vivian: Wait a minute. I'm sorry, you may have lost her? What are you saying?
Quinn: I'm saying Carly's life is ruined. By her own hand, by mine, and by yours. Mission accomplished.
Vivian: We'll see.
Melanie: Are there any other pills here? You should--you should probably give them to me if there are. Uh...is this all of them?
Melanie: Hey. I'm really proud of you.
Victor: You're home again, Maggie. I'll keep you safe now.
Victor: Don't worry, darling, you've got plenty of time to answer me.
Maggie: Make...peace. [Raspy breathing]
Nicole: I talked to my sister.
Nicole: And she thinks we're responsible for everything.
Brady: [Chuckles] Well, you know what, Nicole? I say if she doesn't understand us... who needs her?
Nicole: Good point. [Chuckles]
EJ: Look, Father, I was just talking to Chad. He's scared. I mean, really, who can blame him, you know?
Stefano: It's beyond fear, Elvis. He just does not want to be a part of us.
EJ: If that's true, that's his loss, eh? Come here.
Stefano: Thank you, son... for your loyalty.
On the next "Days of Our Lives" --
Bo: You should take a look at this.
Hope: Oh, my God.
Roman: I told you and Hope to drop this. This is my final warning.
Hope: What does he have against all these women?
