Days of Our Lives Transcript Friday 12/16/11

Jennifer: Ugh!

Jack: Ho-ho, it's a three- pointer for Horton!

Jennifer: Jack, you probably want to leave, 'cause I am not in a good mood right now. I am warning you.

Jack: That's a surprise to me. However, you are in rare form. "EJ DiMera is a venal jerk."

Jennifer: I am working on Abe's campaign. I'm trying to come up with a new slogan.

Jack: This is really catchy.

Jennifer: Oh, really? I thought it was a little petty. But you know what, Jack? He is such a venal jerk. Not only are the DiMeras completely railroading John black, Nicole is playing dirty every day in this campaign--

Jack: And that surprises you?

Jennifer: No, but I am gonna start thinking like a DiMera, and I'm gonna fight fire with fire.

Jack: Okay, here's the first thing you do. You sleep in a coffin, you hang upside-down in a basement--

Jennifer: You know what? I told you, I'm not in a good mood.

Jack: That's because you can't do it. You can't think like a DiMera. It's not in your DNA, because you're that rarest of finds: A really good person. And that's just one of the things that I love about you.

Melanie: There you go, extra-hot.

Daniel: Ah, thank you. Well, mission accomplished.

Melanie: [Laughs]

Daniel: By the way, thank you, um, for going to the hospital with me and hanging out. I know I'm not always the best company.

Melanie: Yeah, you should probably work on that.

Daniel: Eh.

Melanie: I'm kidding. Look, I know you're worried about your myasthenia gravis test. Lighten up a little bit, yeah?

Daniel: Okay, yeah.

Melanie: Hey, um, I'm sorry about Jennifer.

Daniel: Mmm, thank you. Thank you.

Melanie: But I--

Daniel: You know what? I'd rather really not talk about it, but...thank you.

Melanie: 'Kay. I know you're not worried about your mg test.

Daniel: Mmm. Who, me? Please.

Melanie: Yeah, you told me not to sweat it, so I didn't, and my results came back perfect. I'm assuming yours will too.

Daniel: Yeah, I'm sure you're right, yeah.

Melanie: Fate wouldn't do that to such a great surgeon like you. Besides, I think you invited me here so you could make me get my blood pressure tested again.

Daniel: Well, you know, you can't be too careful after what you went through. No, there are severe repercussions with that stuff. That kind of stress. Sure, you can try to shrug it off, but you're not gonna be able to do it. I mean, those guys scared the hell out of you.

Melanie: Yeah. I'm fine though, physically, luckily, but mentally, um, that's--that's probably another story.

Chad: I'm telling you, this is a great idea.

Abigail: I know.

Chad: Everyone should know the basics of self-defense.

Abigail: I think you're right. I mean, maybe if Gabi and I knew how to protect ourselves, then we could have fought off those guys who took us.

Chad: I wish I could have done more to protect Melanie, that's all.

Abigail: Chad, how can you say that? Those guys had guns. I was just with Melanie, and she could not be more grateful to you for everything you did. Hey, Gabi!

Gabi: Hey!

Abigail: Whoa, what's with the shirt? Are you working here now?

Gabi: You are looking at the new receptionist. Do you need to be recepted?

Chad: [Clears throat] Actually, she does. Abigail's gonna sign up for Quinn's self-defense class.

Gabi: Oh, I signed up for that too. You know, next time somebody tries to abduct me, I'm gonna have them on the floor with my foot on their neck. Oh, wait, you need to sign in here.

Abigail: Thanks.

Chad: So, looks like we're all determined that if there's a next time, we'll know how to fight back.

Gabi: Yeah, and if there is a next time, there might not be somebody there like you to save my life.

Chad: Oh, hey now, I wouldn't exactly put it like that. Um, sounds pretty accurate to me. You know, I really owe you, Chad. And if there's anything I can do, other than the poli science notes that I gave you, just ask me.

Both: Oh!

Abigail: I'm sorry!

Austin: [Laughs] You gotta be kidding me. We've gotta stop meeting like this.

Jennifer: You do know that flattery will get you nowhere, right, Jack?

Jack: It's not flattery, Jennifer. It's an accurate assessment of your character. That being said, I'm not here to flatter, cajole, or otherwise convince you. I'm here to check out Abigail and make sure she's all right.

Jennifer: She...she's good. I mean, she seems to be okay. I hope it's not just a defense mechanism.

Jack: Mm-hmm. Well, I was pretty good at

seeming to be okay myself. Well, as okay as I could possibly be.

Jack: See, Jack, that's what I'm worried about, all these kids, all the after effects, what's gonna happen for them. And Abigail, I talked to her about maybe going to see Marlena, and she seemed receptive.

Jack: That's good! That's good. I'm not worried about Abigail, as long as I know that you're looking after her. Same way you looked after me, making sure I stayed on track.

Jennifer: Good, I mean, a-are you still going to therapy?

Jack: Yes. Yes, I am. I am. I mean, it's going to take a while, but I'm making some headway.

Jennifer: Good. That's really good.

Jack: Yes. So, anyway, Abigail. I--I called her. I wanted to make sure she was all right. She didn't call me back, and I-- and I suddenly realized that maybe one of those jerks took her phone, and I just wanted to make sure she had one.

Jennifer: Well, she didn't say anything about that.

Jack: She didn't?

Jennifer: No.

Jack: Well, just the same, I want to make sure she--she has a phone. I mean, not that anything bad is gonna happen, but you gotta have a working phone, right? What?

Jennifer: That--that's so crazy, I mean... I mean, things would have been so different for you if you had a GPS on your phone in Afghanistan, Jack.

Jack: Oh, you're right. It would have been different. You know why? Because you would have tracked me down. You would have tracked me down, and you would have pulled me right out of that cave. You would have saved me. And then, we... we'd still be together.

Jennifer: Uh, that--that just got really complicated. I was just talking about you having a GPS on your phone so that someone could find you, Jack.

Jack: And I took it into the land of what might have been.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Jack: I spend a lot of time there, you know? Thinking. Probably think about it a lot more than you'd imagine.

Jennifer: You know what, Jack? I--I do too. I visit that place every once in a while, but we can't do that. We can't live in a world of what-ifs. We can't change what happened.

Jack: By "what happened" you mean what I did?

Jennifer: No, Jack, I'm not-- I'm not gonna punish you for your past. I mean, right now, I'm worried about Abigail and her being held hostage. I-I'm worried about me and Abigail and J.J., And the year that we didn't even know where you were.

Jack: I know, I know. Y-you didn't know, and... look, I-I-I mean, I realize that it doesn't matter how much I say I'm sorry, it doesn't matter what I did, it happened. There's nothing's gonna change that. It will always be there.

Jennifer: Yes, but I've forgiven you.

Jack: And you are dealing with the aftershocks of what I did, I understand that. I do.

Jennifer: I want you to heal. That's what I want.

Jack: I want all of us to heal. All of us. And I know that that's gonna take time. It's gonna take time for you to see how I have fundamentally changed. Fundamentally changed. [Laughs] Ah, guess what. Talking about me again.

Jennifer: Yeah, well... you're not boring.

Jack: Yes! I am scintillating. And part of that fundamental change that I'm talking about is you understanding, fundamentally, how much I care about my family. I will do everything, from now on, to take care of all of you. And that's starting with nutritional concerns. Look at this, what is this? What have you eaten today besides this?

Jennifer: I'll have you know... I've had a whole pot of coffee.

Jack: Oh, great! Two food groups!

Jennifer: Yes, two.

Jack: Coffee and potato chips. Good. Guess what. Ms. Horton, I'm taking you out for some food, you've gotta eat.

Jennifer: Jack, no! I have so much work to do, Jack!

Jack: Don't even try to out-argue me with low blood sugar. You're gonna eat, you're gonna feel great, you're gonna start thinking again, and you're gonna figure out a way to take down the DiMera political machine...

Jennifer: Jack!

Jack: Singlehandedly!

Austin: So how are you doing? Abigail? You sleep okay last night?

Abigail: Yeah. Yep. No, not really. I had nightmares about those guys that were taking us and not being able to get away, but when I woke up I just kept thinking about how you came charging in--

Austin: No, Abby.

Abigail: And I felt safe again.

Austin: Look, I'm just glad that you all ended up okay.

Abigail: Yeah, thanks to you.

[Door opening]

Quinn: Well, hey, this is great. Quite a crowd we have here today.

Chad: Well, after what happened, I'm gonna sign Abigail up for your self-defense class.

Quinn: Nice.

Austin: You teach a self- defense class here?

Quinn: Uh-huh.

Abigail: Well, Austin, I saw you take that guy down. You don't need classes.

Austin: No, actually, I was thinking about Carrie. My wife is lead counsel for John black, and I'm still a little worried that the threats aren't over with.

Quinn: That must be a pretty stressful job. Along with self-defense, we have medspa, we have yoga, we have mind body spirit care, as well as nutrition.

Austin: So if I get her a gift certificate, she can pretty much choose whatever classes she wants?

Quinn: Absolutely.

Austin: You know, actually, she's been working so hard, I just want to treat her to the works. Everything you got.

Quinn: We also have couples massage. That can help break the stress cycle. Look, let me show you around the place. You're, uh, Austin reed, yeah?

Austin: Yeah, yeah.

Quinn: Great. Hey, did your mother tell you that we feature her countess w products here?

Abigail: Hey, um, if you're gonna give him a tour, do you mind if I tag along? My friends have been raving about the complimentary treatments that they got here, and I would have to check out the rest of the place.

Quinn: Sure, follow me.

Abigail: Great. I'll be right back.

Chad: You know what? I had a thought. I think maybe we should, uh, invite Melanie to this thing too, this--sign her up for this class.

Gabi: Yeah, I mean, maybe you should call her first though? Ask her?

Chad: Yeah, I guess.

Melanie: I'm turning my phone off. Some reporter keeps calling me trying to do a story on the ordeal like I want to talk about it with him or anybody.

Daniel: May I say something to you?

Melanie: Could I stop you?

Daniel: No. I know you're a tough girl. It's just I've seen what can happen to someone when they go through something like you did... and how they run away from their feelings.

Melanie: Yeah, well, my feelings are a little complicated right now. I'm sorry. I just--I keep thinking about the decisions I used to make in the past and the ones I'm making in the future and the people I care about. Really, just, I don't like thinking things through.

Daniel: Well, you get that from me.

Melanie: [Laughs]

Daniel: Come on, keep going.

Melanie: I keep thinking about how I used to do things without even thinking about what would happen to the other person. But, at the same time, I don't really want life to just pass me by.

Daniel: You go once around, girl. You make every moment count. And, honey, I think the days of you hurting other people--I think they're over.

Melanie: Yeah, I don't know. I did something that I-- that I have to tell someone about.

Daniel: Know what? I think that's what dads are for. Okay? So? This deep secret you want to tell me?

Melanie: You won't judge me?

Daniel: Me judge? No, please.

Abigail: Chad!

Daniel: Mel. What's going on?

Melanie: Okay, um, all right, I'll tell you. Um... I...

Daniel: You.

Melanie: Applied for a second job. Yeah, at the day spa. Um, they need someone to do Botox and cosmetic procedures.

Daniel: Really? This is your--this is your life-changing decision that you just needed to tell your father?

Melanie: Yeah, well, I thought you'd be mad.

Daniel: Me? Why would I be mad?

Melanie: 'Cause it's not medicine. I don't know. I'm gonna keep my job at the hospital. I just thought maybe I'd get a second job so I could earn a little extra money so that I was thinking about maybe moving out. Would you be mad?

Daniel: No, of course not. No, I want to grow old living with my spinster daughter waiting on me hand and foot. That would be healthy.

Melanie: You're so funny. I don't like thinking about you being alone.

Daniel: Okay, look, hey, Melanie. You have your own life.

Melanie: Oh, dad, no. I'm--[Clears throat] I'm not talking about me. I'm talking about how dumb you were to let Jennifer go.

Chad: I wonder if we should sign sonny and will up for this class. What do you think?

Gabi: You know what? I think sonny would love that. Uh, will, I don't know. He's been kind of distant.

Chad: Hmm. And you're okay with that?

Gabi: Actually, um, I am. But, like I said, things were really wrong for a long time and we were trying to make it work, but... how do you make something work when you don't even know what the problem is?

Chad: [Exhales] Well, something must be really eating away at him for him to blow up the way he did at Maggie's. And you're right. It's probably for the best you guys broke up. See, the truth is, I don't think you're gonna have much of a problem finding someone else. I mean, you're smart, you're beautiful. I mean, come on.

Gabi: I don't know about that. All the good ones are taken.

Quinn: And our locker rooms are this way--

[Phone rings]

Quinn: Oh, do you mind if take this?

Austin: Yeah, yeah. Go ahead, Quinn.

Quinn: Cool. Hello?

Abigail: You know, I've been looking at my schedule for next semester, and I'm thinking about taking your class.

Austin: Oh, yeah?

Abigail: Yeah. Would that be okay with you if I signed up? I mean, since we're friends outside of school and everything?

Austin: No, Abby, I think that would be great.

Abigail: Great!

Austin: I think it's gonna be a good class. I'm even working on having Carrie coming in to guest lecture.

Quinn: Austin!

Austin: Yeah?

Quinn: This way, mate?

Austin: You got it, Quinn.

Chad: Oh, you know, I'll, uh, I'll go with you, 'cause I think I left a pair of gloves in there, so...

Gabi: You know, professor reed is really hot.

Abigail: Really? I hadn't noticed.

Daniel: Melanie, we have talked about this. Commenting on each other's personal lives is a one-way street.

Melanie: Mm-hmm.

Daniel: No, while I can counsel and guide you, you can say nothing to me. Nothing!

Melanie: Well, that's one of your rules I ignore.

Daniel: One.

Melanie: Besides, I was at Jennifer's earlier--ha--and she was bawling her eyes out over you.

Daniel: She wasn't--was she?

Melanie: Yeah, she was. I know how much you care about her. Besides, I totally think you could take out Abigail's dad. Aside from physically, you also put her heart back into her, and I don't think he could do that.

Daniel: Okay, okay. Okay, one: They have a family and a history together.

Melanie: And you could have a future together.

Daniel: All right, number two: I'm not gonna be in some contest. Not gonna do it. Now, if she can't decide between us, that means maybe she's kind of having a hard time telling me that it's over and she just wants to prolong the agony, where I'm more of a just--chhh-- rip the band-aid off kinda guy.

Melanie: Fine. No matter what happens, I'm really sorry.

Daniel: Hey, you know what? Don't be. Don't worry about it, okay? Do not worry about me. I'm gonna do just fine.

Melanie: Okay.

Daniel: Yeah.

Melanie: I gotta go.

Daniel: All right, you go.

Melanie: I'm late for my interview.

Daniel: All right, you go kick some ass, all right?

Melanie: Okay. Love you, dad.

Daniel: I love you, honey.

Melanie: Now you can finish my sandwich...

Daniel: [Laughs]

Melanie: 'Cause I'm done with it.

[Teasing each other]

Daniel: Stand up straight too when you're in there.

Melanie: Yes, sir.

Daniel: Talk like a lady.

Jack: No, no, I'm just saying, try it, it's really healthy. It's so much better--

Jennifer: No, I want to go to this one over here. My recipe for French toast.

Jennifer: Hey.

Daniel: Hey.

Jennifer: How are you doing?

Daniel: Not bad. You?

Jennifer: Um... [Laughs] Well, I should be working, but I'm--I'm playing hookey. Hunger got the best of me.

Jack: Um, look, they--you know, Jennifer, I was just looking at the menu here and it--it says that their special is minestrone, and since you know how I feel about minestrone, I was thinking maybe it was best if we just, uh--

Daniel: You know what, don't. It's fine, you don't have to leave.

Jennifer: Daniel, no, you don't have to leave your table.

Daniel: It's--it's fine. No problem at all. Please.

Jack: Okay, correct that. Forget about the minestrone. Minestrone and I have no problem whatsoever. In fact, I was just using the minestrone to orchestrate a retreat for the two of us.

Jennifer: Stop talking about the minestrone.

Jack: Right, because the time for retreating is over. Daniel, listen to me. You're a good guy. You're very decent. And you did the stand-up thing the other day when you tried to help me when I was freaking out over Abigail, when the fact was both of our daughters were in danger. I appreciate that, I do. That does not change the fact that you and I are competing for the same woman here. We're competing.

Jennifer: Jack--

Jack: That's the way it is, and I cannot--I will not--I will not back down from that. I will not back down...

Jennifer: Jack--

Jack: Because Jennifer and I belong together. And, look--listen, at the end of the day, Jennifer's gonna make her decision, and I'm betting right now that it is gonna be me.

Daniel: Well, your odds are pretty good, since I'm sure it isn't gonna be me.

Jack: What are you saying?

Daniel: You haven't told him.

Jennifer: No, he doesn't know.

Jack: Wha--

Daniel: You know what? I'm gonna--I'm gonna leave you two alone to work this out.

Jack: Wait a minute... what--what is going on here? Jennifer!

Jennifer: What is going on here... is that Daniel and I are no longer together.

Melanie: Hey!

Chad: Hey yourself. Uh, I was calling you.

Melanie: Oh, I turned my phone off, sorry.

Gabi: Hey! Chad actually signed you up for the self-defense class. Both: He did?

Gabi: Yeah, I guess after what happened he thinks we need to learn how to better protect ourselves.

Melanie: Yeah, no, that's a good idea.

Gabi: Yeah. Hey, do you know which class we need to pick for our schedule?

Abigail: Yeah, uh...


Chad: [Clears throat] I, uh, hope you don't mind.

Melanie: No! [Laughs] No, um, like I said, I think it's a good idea. I, uh... it might calm me down a little bit. I've kind of been having nightmares.

Chad: Yeah, same here.

Melanie: Yeah, um, don't tell anybody, but I've kind of been thinking about talking to will's grandma.

Chad: You know what? I've actually been thinking about that too.

Melanie: And, about the other stuff that happened, um... I'm really sorry.

Abigail: Sorry about what?

Chad: [Clears throat] Uh...

Jack: What'd you just say?

Jennifer: I just said Daniel and I are no longer dating, Jack.

Jack: If I had a hat, I'd throw it in the air. Yes!

Jennifer: Jack, slow down.

Jack: This is amazing. This is amazing.

Jennifer: No, listen to me.

Jack: No, look, look. I--I feel sorry for the guy, I really do. I mean, I can't blame him. He fell head over heels in love with you, he did. But what could he do? He was up against fate, kismet, karma, whatever you wanna call it--you and I are made for each other. We're soul mates. We always have been. And you're looking at me like maybe I'm talking too much and you've got more to say.

Jennifer: You are talking too much, and I have more to say.

Jack: Yes.

Jennifer: Daniel is the one who broke it off with me, Jack.

Jack: What? He's an idiot.

Jennifer: No he's not. He's not an idiot, Jack. He had reasons. He had good reasons to do that.

Jack: Y-- yes. Yes, he had reasons. And okay, he's not an idiot. He's-- but he's a fool. And I don't care... because now there's nothing-- there's nothing standing in our way.

Daniel: [Exhales]

Kayla: Oh, hi!

Daniel: Hey! It's you! What--

Kayla: I know, it's crazy.

Daniel: When did--when did you get back, and what in the world are you doing behind the bar here?

Kayla: Well, I came back to help my mother for the, uh, Christmas rush.

Daniel: Get outta here. Well, welcome back, by the way, and I want to say happy holidays.

Kayla: Thank you. So, um, what can I get you?

Daniel: Oh, you know what you could get me? You could get me, uh, I don't know, maybe--is it too early for a beer and a shot?

Kayla: Mmm, well, my pop used to say that the sun was over the yardarm somewhere.

Daniel: I think he and I would get along really well.

Kayla: [Laughs] Everybody loved him. Drowning our sorrows, are we?

Daniel: No, no, no, no. Just numbing them just a little bit.

Kayla: Ah.

Daniel: Yeah.

Kayla: Well, you've come to the right place.

Daniel: [Exhales]

Jack: I can't tell you how long I've waited for this. How much I prayed for it. And this time it's gonna be different, Jennifer. It's really gonna be different.

Jennifer: No, listen to me, Jack, it's already different. It is different. Will you listen to me?

Jack: Yes. Of course, yes.

Jennifer: Just because Daniel decided that he didn't want to be with me anymore doesn't just fix everything. You don't just win the coin toss and we ride off into the sunset together.

Jack: No, no, I didn't mean that--I didn't mean for it to sound like that. Of course--of course I totally feel for the guy. I really do. I mean, I understand--as hard as it is for me to say this--I can see why you loved him.

Jennifer: Still-- still love him.

Abigail: So, Mel, what is it you were sorry about?

Chad: Uh, Abigail, this is kind of a private conversation.

Abigail: Really?

Melanie: No, he's--no.

Chad: I'm just--

Melanie: He--when--whoa. When we were kidnapped, I freaked out on him...

Abigail: Oh.

Melanie: And I was just apologizing for everything I said.

Chad: It's...okay. Just, you know, make sure you let it go.

Abigail: He's right, Mel. Just let it go. I was pretty freaked when Gabi and I were locked in that room too, so it's totally understandable for you to get upset. And I'm sorry for barging in on your conversation. I know you too have a lot to talk about.

Melanie: Abigail, it's fine. We just had a really intense experience.

Abigail: Yeah, I know. I know, I-- I can't figure out if it's a good thing to talk about it or if you should just move on and go back to whatever you were doing before it all happened.

Chad: I vote for option two.

Abigail: Yeah, me too. Lunch?

Chad: Yeah.

Abigail: Do you wanna come with us?

Melanie: Uh, I can't. I have an interview with Quinn for a job here.

Abigail: Hey! You didn't even tell me about that. I thought best friends told each other everything.

Melanie: Didn't wanna jinx it.

Abigail: All right, well, good luck with the interview. I love this place, it would be great for you to work here.

Melanie: Yeah.

Abigail: Okay.

Chad: See you later.

Abigail: Bye.

Gabi: Hey, uh, Quinn's gonna be right out.

Melanie: Thank you.

Gabi: You all right?

Melanie: Yeah, I'm fine.

Gabi: You sure about that? You don't look so good. Something up?

Quinn: Mel! Let me show you around the place.

Melanie: Okay.

Quinn: I'd like to get your opinion on the new medspa equipment.

Melanie: Yeah.

Quinn: Austin! We will take good care of Carrie when she comes in, mate.

Austin: Thanks so much. Okay, Gabi, please bestow upon my wife the queen for the day package.

Gabi: Perfect, I'm sure your wife is gonna love it. Uh, I saw you talking to Abigail. Are you guys friends?

Austin: Yeah. Yeah, of course.

Gabi: Yeah, 'cause I saw you at the journalism presentation.

Austin: Yes, she invited Carrie and I. We've known Abby since she was A... little girl.

Gabi: Yeah, well, she's, uh-- she's all grown up now.

Austin: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, she sure is.

Gabi: All right, well, here you go. Hope she enjoys it.

Austin: Thanks so much.

Gabi: No problem.

Daniel: Ooh.

Kayla: Listen, Jennifer is a great girl, but--

Daniel: But if you gotta work that hard and it's still not working, chances are it's probably not meant to be.

Kayla: Yeah.

Daniel: Right?

Kayla: C'est la vie, or something like that, you know?

Daniel: Mm-hmm. You know, you have that philosophical quality that's found in, um, all great bartenders. You got it.

Kayla: It's in my heritage, you know?

Daniel: What is that, Irish or Scottish? What was that?

Kayla: Get out of here!

Austin: How's the second career coming?

Kayla: Hi! Well, you know, I was looking for something more challenging than medicine. What can I get you?

Austin: Uh, cheeseburger, medium-rare.

Kayla: Gotcha.

Austin: And... what do you got there, partner?

Daniel: Well, I got a Belgian lager. You need to treat yourself right and get one.

Austin: I'll have one of those.

Kayla: Okay, coming right up. And, uh, Daniel, Austin. Austin, Daniel.

Daniel: Yo, what's up, man?

Austin: Nice to meet you.

Kayla: Hey, and listen, as long as I have two handsome men here, I have a question for you.

Daniel: Mm-hmm.

Kayla: What do you think about a nice, big, you know, flatscreen TV right here over the bar?

Daniel: Well, right now I think it would intrusive and kind of spoil the ambience...

Kayla: Oh.

Daniel: But I will completely change my opinion once baseball season starts. Both: 106 days.

Kayla: Whoa.

Daniel: You a fellow fan?

Austin: Greatest words in the English language?

Daniel: "Pitchers and catchers reporting." Both: My brother.

Daniel: What's up, man? It is so nice to meet you.

Austin: Nice to meet you.

Daniel: Well, you know what? Next drink's on me. In fact, this one's on me, and get him one of these as well.

Austin: I got next round.

Kayla: Okay, coming right up. I can see that the two of you have a lot to talk about.

Daniel: Oh, yeah, it's coming. Right around the corner.

Jack: You still love Daniel?

Jennifer: Look, I understand why he didn't want to go any further in this. I-I do, but it doesn't change my feelings for him, Jack.

Jack: Don't you see? If he backed out, it's because he sees that we're meant for each other.

Jennifer: I don't think that was his reasoning, Jack.

Jack: But it's true! It's true! Look at... our time in the cabin, our time worrying about Abigail. It shows how much we're really connected in a really deep and really meaningful way.

Jennifer: You know what, Jack, you're right. You're right, we're connected, but that doesn't mean we just pick up where we left off, because you know what? Where we left off was not good.

Jack: What?

Jennifer: Okay, forget-- forget the whole year that you were gone. The fact that you left for Afghanistan and you were chasing this story without even telling us you were leaving, that means we had a problem, Jack. We had serious problems.

Jack: Yes. Yes. We did. And maybe we do, but I'm going to solve those problems. I am not the same man who walked away a year ago. I am not. I will never leave you again... because I love you. I really do.

Jennifer: You know what, Jack? I love you too. But love, for us, is not enough to make a marriage work, and I will not go into this again unless I am sure it can, 'cause I am telling you I cannot face seeing this fail one more time. I'm sorry, that's just how I feel. I need to go. I need to go back to work.

Quinn: Well, I think you're just about perfect for this job.

Melanie: You don't mind keeping my schedule flexible?

Quinn: Uh, no, not at all. Whenever you get your schedule from the hospital, just let us know and we'll work around that. But watch out, I'm gonna give you as many hours as you can handle.

Melanie: That is what I was hoping you would say.

Quinn: Uh, Gabi, could you please give Melanie a w-2 form?

Melanie: Cool. Thank you.

Quinn: Welcome aboard.

Gabi: Congratulations, it looks like we're going to be working together.

Melanie: I know, I can't wait.

Gabi: Two jobs, huh? You're gonna be busy.

Melanie: I think that might be exactly what I need.

Chad: So did you make up your mind?

Abigail: What?

Chad: I asked what you wanted for lunch.

Abigail: Oh, I'm sorry, um... the chicken salad with no avocado, please.

Chad: Okay, you got it.

Abigail: Thanks.

Austin: That's a nice hat.

Abigail: Oh, I, uh...

Austin: [Laughs]

Abigail: I didn't realize that I had it until I got home, so...thank you for letting me borrow it.

Austin: No, no, no. Here, you keep it.

Abigail: Really?

Austin: Yeah, it looks a lot better on you than it does on me. I wouldn't want my wife to know this, but one of the main reasons I wanted to move back to the baseball.

Daniel: Wow.

Austin: Tragedy is I gave up my season tickets.

Daniel: Well, you know what, you're in luck my friend, because I have two. You can be my guest.

Austin: Daniel...

Daniel: Hmm?

Austin: Thank you, man. I mean, beer's on me.

Daniel: You got it.

[Phone rings]

Daniel: No, no worries about it. Don't worry about it. You better get that.

Austin: I gotta take this.

Daniel: Yeah, no, you go.

Austin: Seriously, thank you.

[Phone rings]

Daniel: Hey, my pleasure, brother. You be good, man.

Jack: Hey.

Austin: Hey, Jack. I'm gonna--I'm gonna come back in.

Jack: All-all right.

Austin: I'm right there.

Kayla: Hello, Jack. Long time no see.

Jack: Yeah. Well, hi, Kayla. Welcome home.

Kayla: Thank you. Uh, can I get you something?

Jack: Uh, get me something? Um...

Daniel: I'll tell you what, how about a beer? How about a beer and some baseball? We'll talk some baseball.

Jack: You sure about that?

Daniel: Am I sure? Yes, I'm very sure, as a matter of fact. I mean, we're going to run into each other, it's a small town. Right? Might as well be chill about it.

Jack: Might as well be chill. Right.

Daniel: Exactly.

Jack: Thank you, yes, I will.

Daniel: Exactly, come on.

Kayla: All right, what can I get you?

Jack: Uh... I like what he's having. Why don't I have, uh, medium- rare, no onions.

Kayla: Got it.

Daniel: So how you doing. Jack?

Jack: I seem to be okay. I want to thank you for the other day when you kind of talked me down.

Daniel: Ah.

Jack: I know you were worried about your own daughter.

Daniel: Well, you'd have done the same for me, right?

Jack: I would have done the same thing for you, but I don't think I would have done it as well as you did it.

Daniel: Hmm. Nah. Well, I'm sure Jennifer probably, um... well, I'm sure she told you what happened, right?

Jack: That she did. And I told her that I think that you're being an idiot.

Daniel: [Laughs] Well, that could very well be true. But, in any event, uh, I really do hope that you guys are very, very happy.

Jack: I'd hold off on the congratulations if I were you.

Daniel: Yeah?

Jack: She hasn't made any decisions yet.

Melanie: Oh, hey!

Abigail: Hey! How'd the interview go?

Melanie: Good, I got the job.

Abigail: Mel, that's great! How cool is it that you get to be working with Gabi too?

Melanie: Yes, very cool. I'm excited. Where's Chad?

Abigail: Oh, he just went to get us some lunch.

Melanie: Oh.

Abigail: But, um, before he comes back, I need to ask you something.

Melanie: Yeah.

Abigail: Um, listen... earlier, when you and Chad were talking and you said you were sorry.

Melanie: I already told you what happened though.

Abigail: I know, I just... I thought maybe you were just trying to come up with something. You know, cover for what you were really gonna say.

Melanie: What?

Abigail: I was worried that you were gonna tell Chad about the other guy I have a crush on.

[Closes laptop]

Jennifer: [Sighing]

[Papers rustling]

Austin: You know, you gotta start looking at this in the right way, Jack. Meaning... the masculine way. Sure, right now you feel alone. Dejected.

Rejected. Lonely. Bereft.

Jack: Don't sugarcoat it.

Austin: But the upside? Get to watch sports whenever you want.

Daniel: Amen, brother.

Jack: You get to put your feet up on the coffee table. You get to leave the toilet seat up. All with no consequences at all.

Jack: Can we talk about something else, please?

Austin: Baseball.

Jack: [Laughs]

Austin: The one thing in this life that never lets you down.

Jack: What are you, a Yankee fan?

Austin: What other kind of fan is there?

Kayla: You know, you surgeons are all alike. You can tie a knot with one hand, and you can't make out your signature. Really.

Melanie: Abigail, I would never tell Chad something you told me in confidence.

Abigail: [Laughs] I know, I feel so stupid even asking. You're my best friend, and I know that I can trust you.

Melanie: Can I ask you a question, though? If you have a crush on this guy, what's gonna happen with you and Chad?

Abigail: Well, this thing, this crush that I have, I know that nothing can come of it. And it doesn't change the way I feel about Chad. I mean, he's...amazing. You know? He's a great guy.

Chad: Boop.

Abigail: Hi!

Chad: Hello.

Abigail: We were just talking about what great guy you are, right?

Chad: Oh.

Melanie: Right.

Abigail: [Laughs] Guess what.

Chad: Huh?

Abigail: Melanie here just got a job at the spa.

Chad: Oh, heyo! Congratulations.

Melanie: Yeah, thank you.

Chad: Um, let us, uh, let us buy you lunch to congratulate you.

Melanie: No, that--la

Abigail: Great idea, Chad.

Melanie: Mmm, I have to co back to the hospital to check my schedule. Besides, three's a crowd. So you guys--you guys enjoy though.

Chad: All right all right, you sure?

Melanie: Yes. I am sure.

Chad: All--all right. All right.

Melanie: All right. You guys, you enjoy.

Abigail: Thanks.

Madison: If you feel so strongly about this, maybe it's time for you to look for another job.

John: So that's been that son of a bitch DiMera's plan all along.

Nicole: Are you responsible for embezzling all that money?
