Victor: Ah, thank you for coming, Madison.
Madison: Oh, hi.
Victor: I know it was rather short notice.
Madison: No problem--I didn't have anything else planned. Brady.
Victor: Oh, there you are. I'm glad you're here. I tried to get a hold of you earlier.
Brady: Oh, yeah?
Victor: I'm making an announcement, and I wanted you both to be here for it.
Brady: Really? What's going on?
Victor: You'll find out soon enough.
Ian: Hello, everyone. I hope I'm not too late.
John: [Sighs] I'm so sorry I'm having to put you through this, Doc.
Marlena: This isn't your fault. It's Stefano's. Besides, I kind of like traveling with you.
John: Yeah? Well, it's not like I'm taking you to Venice... or even Niagara Falls. We're talking about Alamania. It's not exactly romantic.
Marlena: Whenever we're together, it is romantic.
John: Wow, talk about the glass half full type of attitude.
Marlena: We'll get through this... as we have everything else that rodent has put us through.
[Knock at door]
John: That's got to be Bo and Hope.
John: Hey, Hope, Bo. Come on in.
Hope: Hey, John. Hi, Marlena. All set?
John: Roman! Ah, what's going on? Are you going with us?
Roman: No, but I do hear that Alamainia's lovely this time of year.
John: Oh, yeah.
Roman: You take care of yourself and take good care of her.
John: You know I will.
Marlena: Oh, we'll be fine.
Hope: That's right--we will be. In two weeks, the Alamainian officials will Grant us a divorce. And hopefully, God-willing, fingers crossed, we'll finally be free and clear of Stefano DiMera.
Bo: When that happens, I'll be glad to rub his face in it.
Roman: Well, given the election results, it looks like Stefano is not the only DiMera to go down in defeat.
John: Hmm, good news.
EJ: Sooner than I think-- what's that supposed to mean?
Nicole: It means I don't think you need to worry. This nightmare will be over and soon.
Nicole: Well, for EJ. But for Abe... not so much.
All: [Chanting] Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie!
Abe: Lex, Lex. Lex!
All: [Chanting] Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie! Lexie!
Brady: Excuse me. What the hell is he doing here?
Victor: Brady, watch your tone. This man is a guest in my house.
Brady: Do you even know who that man is, Granddad?
Victor: Of course, I do. It's Ian McAllister. He's almost as good a businessman as I am.
Maggie: Brady, is something the matter? That just didn't seem like you just now.
Ian: Actually, the truth is, Maggie, this is not the first time Brady and I have met. Unfortunately, we did get off on the wrong foot. You see, I caught him playing with something that didn't rightfully belong to him.
Brady: Let me repeat my question--what is he doing here?
Victor: I'd like you to meet the new CEO of Titan.
Ian: That's right. We're all going to be working together. I think I'm going to enjoy my time here in Salem.
Stefano: What are you talking about? It's Carver that won the reelection. It's up to Elvis now to concede.
Nicole: You know, Stefano, I really wish you had a little more faith in me.
Kate: Turn the sound back up. Something's not right.
Abe: As you can see... this is a very emotional night for me... and for my family. I want to thank you all... for giving me a chance to serve you again. And I promise that I will do my very best to... to live up to the trust you have in me. Thank you. Where's Lexie?
Jennifer: I don't know. She just took off. Why did she leave like that?
Abe: She found out the truth about the debate--she's furious.
Abe: I've got to find her. I've got to make her understand.
Kate: Well, I don't think the end of that speech was as impressive as the beginning.
Stefano: Why wasn't Alexandra by his side?
EJ: Do you know what happened?
Nicole: Not exactly. But I have a general idea.
EJ: He bobbled his acceptance speech. We don't have much of a platform to gloat on. It was his acceptance speech. He won. I lost. Excuse me.
Nicole: EJ, just wait a second, okay? Just wait to see what's in store.
EJ: I appreciate you don't give up without a fight, darling, but an inquiry or whatever else it is you have in mind, it's not going to make too much difference at this point. He won. So, if you'll excuse me, I have to go congratulate him and work on my concession speech. God help me.
Stefano: [Groans] Ay-yi-yi-yi-yi. I don't know what you're gonna do to fix this, but, uh, it better be good.
Nicole: Don't worry, Stefano. I'm not gonna let EJ down-- not now.
Brady: Are you--are you serious? You're really gonna make this guy the CEO of Titan?
Victor: I already have. I'm just paying you the courtesy of telling you about it.
Brady: You've lost your mind, Granddad. You want to send Titan right down the tubes with this guy?
Maggie: Brady, let's get some air.
Ian: Why don't you at least be honest, Brady, and admit that this is an emotional response you're having?
Brady: An emotional response? What do you mean by that, Ian?
Ian: You don't care about Titan--you're jealous. I've taken your former job, and I've also taken my wife back. That's the real reason for this little tantrum.
Brady: You son of a--
Ian: You better watch your temper, young man. Especially around me.
John: Looks like we've got ourselves a pretty solid game plan.
Hope: Ciara's earthworms.
John: Excuse me?
Hope: Ciara's Science Fair is tomorrow, and I completely forgot to tell Kayla about it. I've been growing these worms for a month with Ciara, but, yeah, I'm not gonna be there because I'm gonna be in Alamania.
John: Is she all right?
Bo: Ah... we feel like we just got our lives back together, and now we have to leave Ciara... leave everything to go to some God-forsaken country to undo something that Stefano has done.
John: Yeah, I'm sorry about this, Bo.
Bo: We'll take care of it. Couple weeks, it'll be over. That monster better rot in hell for what he's done to my wife.
Kate: My love, I am so sorry you're upset.
Stefano: Ah. I don't think he thought he could lose. I don't think he knows what to do with the rest of his life. You know, he did this for the children, and now, poof-- he has nothing.
Kate: Oh, well, Nicole seems very confident that she can fix it.
Stefano: Well... if so, I was hoping she could fix it before they announced the winner.
Kate: I know. I know.
Stefano: Thank you. Means the world to me that you are here with me.
Kate: Where else would I be? So have you given any more thought to opening that envelope from the security deposit box?
Stefano: No. I still think the best thing to do is leave it alone. Let sleeping dogs lie.
Kate: Okay, if that's what you want.
Abe: Lex... Lexie... let--let me explain. I didn't mean to--
Lexie: To lie to me? But you did. I would've expected something like that from EJ or my father... not you.
Lexie: I can't stop thinking about calling our little boy and telling him that you won because you were honest... because you put up a fair, decent fight. Turns out your politics were just as dirty as my brother's.
Lexie: No? Well, then how would explain them, Abe?
Abe: Lexie, it--it was... a fair and decent fight until I found out that EJ was planning on getting those debate questions in advance. He'd already stolen my jobs plan. I had to do something.
Lexie: Jennifer... Jennifer-- she wanted you to fight dirty. She wanted you to fight fire with fire all along.
Abe: No, Lexie this was my--
Lexie: I was with it up to a point.
Abe: Lexie this was my dec--
Lexie: What the hell did she say to you?
Abe: Don't blame Jennifer! Lexie... you know EJ was stacking the deck against me.
Lexie: So you just... sunk down to his level and did everything you could to sandbag him. When he accused you... I defended you, Abe. You looked me right in the eyes, and you lied to me... to the one person who believes in you the most. God, I feel like such a fool. I was so sure that you were a better person than my brother and my father. You're just like them.
John: I told Bo that I was sorry. I never thought we were gonna have to deal with this again.
Hope: Yeah, well, leave it to Stefano.
John: Hope, he kept saying that he tried talking you out of opening that envelope. You sorry you did?
Hope: I'm grateful that Gran tried so hard to protect her family... to protect me, actually. I don't think I ever would've found that key if it weren't for Gran and her guiding hand. So you know what? I have to believe that, uh--that Gran felt that I was ready to know the truth and deal with it.
Bo: Well, dealing with it might be more difficult than we thought.
Marlena: There's a problem with our visas.
Stefano: Nicole, call me and tell me what the hell is going on. Katherine... are you all right? You seem, uh, distracted.
Ian: I never should've let you go.
Kate: No, it's--it's nothing.
Stefano: I think it is. Something is bothering you, and I want to know what it is or who it is.
Victor: Does somebody want to tell me what the hell is going on here?
Brady: I'll tell you what's going on here. You just made Madison's husband the CEO of Titan.
Maggie: I didn't know you were married.
Brady: Yeah, none of us did.
Ian: Frankly, I think it's a little hurtful that you kept it a secret.
Maggie: Hurtful? That was hurtful.
Brady: Granddad, you really need to improve your vetting process a bit.
Victor: You should've told me.
Ian: Well, it's all water under the bridge now, isn't it?
Victor: No. It's duplicitous at best. And you're behavior here tonight--I can't have this sort of conflict in my company or in my family. The offer is rescinded.
Ian: It's too late. I'm here to stay... whether you like it or not.
Nicole: EJ! EJ, honey, can we just... talk about this?
EJ: Nicole, there's nothing left to talk about, okay? I lost, all right? It's time for me to concede.
Nicole: Hey, listen to me. Hey. I promised that I would fix this, and I am. Just give me a little time.
EJ: Nicole, I just want this over with, all right? I know what's waiting for me-- a sea of self-righteous faces overdosing on schadenfreude.
Nicole: There is no law that says you have to do this.
EJ: Look, if I don't, I just look like a sore loser.
Jennifer: It's too late, EJ. You already do. All the money, all the plots, all the schemes, and you still lost.
EJ: I was looking for, um, Abraham and Lexie. I'd like to congratulate them. Do you know where they are?
Abe: Lex... I know you're disappointed in me. But can't you see what I was up against? I did what I had to do.
Lexie: Don't, don't, don't! The only thing you can do to make this worse is to try and justify it. Look, I know who my father is. I know who my brother is. I know how close I came to going down that same path. But what stopped me... is you. My strength came from knowing that I was with a good, honest, decent man--a man who would never turn out like them. I always thought you were the one person... that I could always trust, Abe. I was wrong.
Hope: I hate this, all of it. Leave it to Stefano to have pull in Alamania.
Marlena: Well, that can't be too difficult. It's a fairly corrupt little place, you know.
Hope: I know.
John: Well, I left a message for Vivian. She's royalty in Alamania.
John: Maybe she can help.
Hope: I love my life. I love it. I mean, you got to laugh, right? I'm asking Vivian Alamain for help? This is crazy. Bo is trying to reach Carly and Nicholas. Nicholas might be able to clear all this up.
Marlena: I've got a friend in the State Department. I will just give him a call.
John: Good luck.
Marlena: Thank you.
Hope: John... if we can't get into this country, we can't get the divorce, and Stefano has just the entry he needs to start messing with our lives again. I hate this... all of it. You and I are together... now and forever. No one's ever gonna keep us apart now.
John: That is exactly what I wanted you to say to me.
Hope: He warned me... that opening that envelope would be opening a Pandora's box.
John: Oh, come on, Hope. He's not gonna wreak that kind of havoc on our lives again.
Hope: It's not our lives I'm worried about.
Marlena: Oh, hi, there. Could I speak to Clark Brandon, please? Marlena Evans. Yes, of course, I'll hold. You're saying you slept with Hope on our honeymoon.
John: Once again, it was Gina, and I was set up by her.
Marlena: You were set up.
Bo: Hey, uh, I couldn't reach Carly or Nicholas. Did you have any luck?
Marlena: I'm on hold right now. But whatever happens... Stefano will not win this time.
Stefano: Katherine, you know I always know when you're holding something from me.
Kate: The truth is, I have a lot on my mind.
Stefano: I mean, does it have anything to do with us?
Kate: No. Of course not. I would tell you if it did. It's just... there's distracting stuff at work-- nothing I can't handle, though.
Stefano: Look, you know I've always respected your abilities, right? So, I mean, if it happens to be something that you can't handle, all you have to do is ask.
Kate: Tell me something I don't know.
EJ: Okay, well, um, I will go and look for Abraham and Lexie myself.
Jennifer: I will say, Nicole, that you really did as well as could be expected with an impossible candidate.
Nicole: We'll see about that.
[Cell phone ringing]
Nicole: Ooh, excuse me. You know, I really got to go. Jennifer, always a pleasure. We should do lunch.
Jennifer: What does that mean? What is she so chipper about?
[Cell phone ringing]
Jennifer: Hello? Yes, this is Jennifer Horton. What? You have got to be kidding me.
EJ: Alexandra... hey, I'm sorry. Uh, listen, I just wanted to, um... is something wrong?
Lexie: No, no, it's just been an emotional evening.
EJ: Yeah. For all of us. I just want to say, um... congratulations. Most people seem to think the best man won.
Lexie: Not everyone.
EJ: Abraham! You, um, fought a very good campaign, and... it was fair and square. You beat me.
Lexie: I'm gonna go check on Theo.
EJ: Uh, give him my love, Lexie. Congratulations.
Abe: Thank you.
Nicole: EJ... hang on a second. No congratulations, no concession speech. Abe. According to my contact at the election commission, they found an irregularity in the ballots, and now... the results are being challenged.
Victor: This is not going to work. You don't attack my grandson in my own house and expect to work for me.
Ian: Work for you? Well, I'll work with you, but I'm not gonna work for you. Well, I'll work with you, but I'm not gonna work for you.
Victor: The offer is rescinded. Go!
Ian: Your efficient director of H.R. delivered me a signed contract earlier. After my lawyer looked at it, I signed it. You can't get rid of me.
Brady: Oh, I can think of a way.
Ian: Well, I'm feeling very positive now that we've cleared the air. I think we've settled some intimate issues.
Ian: Yes. I think we should focus on work. I'm raring to go. I have some wonderful ideas for Titan, Victor. And also for Mad World, of course. Well, if you'll excuse me, I have another engagement. But I shall see you and Madison in the morning. You remember how I feel about punctuality, Madison. Maggie... may I take this opportunity to say how wonderful you look in that dress? Victor is a very lucky man.
Maggie: What a jerk!
Victor: I'm going to call my attorney.
Maggie: Um, I will leave you two alone. I'm sure there are things that you have to talk about.
Madison: Brady, I had no idea.
Brady: Maggie's wrong, all right? We have nothing to talk about.
Brady: Nothing to talk about. Nothing.
Madison: Wait! Brady, please?
Kate: So... I know it's been a really hard night, but do you mind if I go out just for a little while?
Kate: Yes, out. You-- you know these issues I'm having at work--I think that if I just go to the office and I get things prepared for the morning, I'll just calm down a little bit.
Stefano: All right, that's fine. I'll watch the election here and see if, uh, Nicole did anything to fix it.
Kate: Okay. I hope she did. Um, don't wait up for me, though. I'll be back soon.
Stefano: [Exhales deeply]
Abe: What are you talking about?
Nicole: It seems I'm talking about a recount.
EJ: Why? What happened?
Jennifer: I need a word with you now, Abe. We have really big trouble.
Abe: Yeah, I know. Nicole just told us. They're challenging the election results, but she wouldn't say why.
Jennifer: Yes, well, apparently the commission found evidence of ballot tampering.
Abe: What? I thought you told that contact that we weren't interested in winning that way.
Jennifer: Abe, I did. I told him that. I told him I wanted the election to be fair and square.
Abe: Well, then how the hell did this happen?
Jennifer: I know how this happened. We were set up.
EJ: Come here. You still haven't told me what happened.
Nicole: I told you not to worry. Just like I promised... I've taken care of everything.
Bo: Hey, Fancy Face.
Hope: Hey. Did you reach Nicholas?
Bo: No, but Marlena was able to get through to her contact in the State Department.
Marlena: Yes, he called the Alamainian consulate at once.
Marlena: We just have to wait and see.
John: Here you go.
Man: Sorry to interrupt, but the problem with your visas has been cleared up. You can board now.
Marlena: Wow. Thanks so much. Thank you.
John: All right. So now we begin. Good guys one, DiMera nothing.
Stefano: No. No. This can't be.
Ian: Nobody gets to me Kate... the way you do... not then... not now, not ever.
Victor: I want you to go through that contract line by line. There's got to be some way to get rid of that jerk. Get back to me. I can't believe I was taken in by that guy. The walking stick-- the minute he walked in with that walking stick, bells started to go off. And you know what really makes me mad?
Victor: It's all my fault. I've been around you long enough to know that I feel guilty when I start yelling at people when I'm the one that's to blame.
Maggie: Well, you couldn't have known that they were married. Madison never let on she was married to anyone, let alone Ian McAllister.
Victor: No, Brady was right. I should know everything about everyone. I had my guard down. It would've never happened to me before--
Maggie: Before what, Victor?
Madison: Brady, you have to listen to me, okay? I tried to tell you before. I'm sorry. I wasn't completely honest with you.
Brady: You weren't completely honest with me.
Madison: This is the God's honest truth. Ian is not the man in my heart. You are. Please, tell me you don't see that.
Abe: I shouldn't say I believe it... but I think I do.
Jennifer: Abe, there isn't anything-- there isn't anything they wouldn't do to win this election. Oh, that's great. Here we go. Here it goes.
Man: Mr. Mayor, Mr. DiMera, it appears that someone had this man alter some of the election results. Therefore we're going ahead with an inquiry as well as a recount.
EJ: Well, how long is the recount going to take exactly?
Man: We won't any results for at least 24 hours, but, um, right now I wonder, may I have a word with you and Mrs. DiMera in private?
EJ: Yes, of course. Anything that we can, uh, do to help.
Roman: I know you had nothing to do with this. No way you had this guy stuff a ballot box for you.
Lexie: They look so serious. Abe... what have you done?
Roman: Get this guy out of here.
Abe: Lex... you can't think I had anything to do with this.
Lexie: I didn't think you'd arrange to get the debate questions in advance. I-I didn't think you'd send fake ones to EJ, but...
Abe: Lexie. I'm telling you the truth. You have to believe me.
Lexie: I have to? Why is that, Abe, hmm? Why do I have to believe you?
Maggie: You were gonna say this would never have happened before you married me. Weren't you?
Brady: Madison, I wouldn't talk about me seeing what's in your heart, if I were you, 'cause after all your secrets and all your lies, I don't-- I don't know who you are. I don't know what you are anymore.
Madison: I lied, Brady. I love you. And I lied, and I kept secrets. And I broke maybe every single rule in the entire book. But I love you. And I know that you love me too.
Kate: Excuse me. You're in my way.
Ian: What might you be doing out here at this time of night?
Kate: I don't think that's any of your business.
Ian: Well, you're clearly not going home, which leads me to believe you're throwing yourself into your work... which leads me to believe you're trying to do everything you can not to think about me.
Kate: Oh, I think you do enough thinking about yourself for both of us.
Ian: [Laughs] I could always push your buttons. You could always make me laugh. We still have chemistry, Kate. We have very powerful chemistry.
Marlena: Okay, there it goes.
Man: I apologize for the confusion, but I just received word. I'm sorry to have to tell you...
Hope: Tell us? Tell us what?
Man: That only Ms. Hope Brady's and Mr. John Black's visas have been cleared to enter Alamania.
Bo: Oh, right.
Abe: Lexie... you have to believe me because I'm telling you the truth. Neither Jennifer or I had anything to do with that guy. We never asked him to do anything for us. In fact, we told him not to.
Lexie: I don't know what to believe. I don't know who you are. I don't know what happened to the man I love. I-I...
Abe: Lex. Lex!
Roman: Abe, Abe. Partner, I'm sorry, but you know we have to go down to the station and talk about this. And if it turns out EJ is named the winner, this town is in big trouble.
EJ: Our incumbent didn't look very happy just now, did he?
Nicole: None of them did. I told you I would take care of everything.
EJ: I'm very lucky you're a woman of your word.
Woman: The outcome of this race was certain, but due to alleged ballot tampering, a recount is being conducted in Salem's mayoral race. It seems likely that EJ DiMera could be our next mayor.
