[Knock at door]
Kristen: Hold on a second. You got here fast. Uh, the door's open. Just leave the tray on the desk over here, and I will sign for it later. Thank you.
[Knock at door]
Nicole: Ugh, what do you want?
EJ: If you think you're going to get away with this, you're very much mistaken.
Nicole: What the hell are you talking about?
EJ: You changed your story. The district attorney dropped the charges against Jennifer, and I want to know why.
Maggie: So, Jennifer, you want me to talk to Daniel about not leaving?
Jennifer: Yes, please, play the mother card.
Maggie: Oh, honey, I have already talked to him about this.
Jennifer: I know, but just talk to him again.
Jennifer: Y-you're Maggie Horton Kiriakis. You can make a mountain move if you want to. I am begging you, please try again.
Maggie: Okay, of course. Just--just let me deal with him.
I thought you were gonna take that to lost and found.
Carla: It would just fit my sister's baby.
Eli: Dr. Jonas, hi.
Daniel: What, uh, what are you doing here?
Eli: I brought over this box of baby clothes. Salem gives donates them to poor women who give birth here.
Daniel: Oh, I'm glad Nicole went home. She actually bought one of those things. I wouldn't want her to see it. Thank you, thank you.
Okay, give it to me. Dr. Jonas, will you tell this woman that stealing is wrong?
Daniel: Okay, you know what, just, why don't you give it to me? Hold on a second, hold it. Maggie. Maggie?
Maggie: Oh, Daniel, hi. Uh, I need to see you right away. It's important.
Daniel: Everything okay?
Maggie: Oh, yeah, yeah, I just don't want to discuss it over the phone. It's important that I talk to you in person.
Kristen: So lunch has arrived.
Brady: I think it's time that you and I got something straight.
Nick: There you are.
Nick: Hey, you guys.
Sonny: Hey, what's up?
Nick: How's it going?
Will: Oh, so there is the Salem Indie Music Fest coming up.
Sonny: Right, yeah, we wanted to see if we could all go together. You know, like, just the four of us, like a little double date kind of thing.
Gabi: That sounds like a good idea. What do you think, Nick?
Nick: Uh, well, wouldn't that depend on--on who's playing?
Sonny: Well, I mean, that is a good point, yeah. Um, all right, well, yeah, just let us know if you want to come.
Will: All right. Thanks.
Gabi: No problem.
Nick: See you, guys.
Sonny: See you later.
Will: See ya. Oh, gross, some kid put candy corn in my pocket.
Sonny: Ew, who would do that? Well, actually, I did.
Will: Are you serious?
Gabi: Okay, so...do you want to tell me what the deal is between you and the guys?
Nicole: Oh, this is great. This is great, EJ. It's just like old times. Things don't go exactly the way you want them to go, so you treat me like an incompetent servant.
EJ: "Not the way I want it to go"? The woman who killed our kid is free. Do you think that's minor league, sweetheart? And it's because you changed your story.
Nicole: I'm not telling you anything. It is hard enough as it is without you coming in here and pressuring me and yelling at me and poking me.
EJ: I haven't started. I don't understand, Nikki.
Nicole: Well, I realized, EJ, after a lot of thought, I'm not exactly sure what happened, and since I wasn't sure, I needed to let the police know that.
EJ: You told me...she'd pushed you.
Nicole: Yeah, well, I told you everything that you need to know, EJ, and if you need details, then you can go ahead and read the police report, okay? So now you can leave. I just got back from the hospital, I'm exhausted, I'm going to sleep. [Grunts]
EJ: I'm not going anywhere until you tell me why you changed what you said. Got it?
Daniel: You're not setting me up for another go-round with Victor?
Daniel: So it's just the two of us.
Maggie: Just the two of us.
Daniel: I'll be right over.
Carla: Fine, I'll put it back when my shift is over.
Daniel: Okay, what is the problem?
Carla: It's all taken care of, Doctor.
Daniel: All right, good, figure it out. I've got stuff to do. [Groans]
Kristen: Wonderful. I love getting things straight.
Brady: I want you to stop playing games with my father and Marlena.
Kristen: I see that you're buying into Marlena's rather paranoid reaction to me being back in Salem.
Brady: I mean it. You leave them the hell alone.
Nick: I guess, uh, I don't know what you meant.
Gabi: Well, you just seem, like, closed off around them.
Nick: Maybe it just--it seems like that. You know, I'm not as...on all the time, like they are.
Gabi: Okay, well, I mean, we talked about it. It's not like--it's not like they're "on." It's just, they're happy.
Nick: Yeah, they sure seem like they are.
Gabi: Nick...tell me--tell me that this isn't about them being gay.
Sonny: So this is, uh...the first time we've been alone since...well, you know.
Will: Yeah, since my dad made his grand entrance.
Sonny: Do you want to talk about it?
Will: No, no, take it. Please, it's business, take it.
Sonny: I know, life is tough for us job creators. Just give me one second, okay?
Billie: Looks like you're having fun.
Will: Oh, hi, hi.
Will: Sit down, sit down, hi.
Billie: Thanks. Hey.
Will: So how's it going? Something wrong?
Billie: I was going to ask you the exact same thing, actually.
Will: Oh, why?
Billie: Well, I-I had a little chat with your dad.
Kristen: So, Brady, before I make the call to have you thrown out, you don't happen to have any crackers on you or maybe a sandwich? I'm starving.
Brady: There's something new, a DiMera with bravado. Wow.
Kristen: Sorry, couldn't resist. I like to keep the tone light when I'm about to call the cops.
Brady: You don't need to call the cops. I'm going. I just wanted to make sure that you got my message.
Kristen: [Sighs] Wait. Speaking of messages, I'm gonna go change into something a little less comfortable, and then I want to make sure that you got mine. Okay?
Abigail: There you are.
Abigail: Hi. I see you don't check your messages when you're walking on air. You're not walking on air. Mom, Nicole didn't change her mind, did she? The charges against you, they're still dropped, aren't they?
Jennifer: No, honey, she didn't change her mind.
Abigail: Okay, good. We've had the guillotine over our head for about a week now. Now that it's over, let's not be happy about it or anything.
Jennifer: Honey, I'm happy. And I'm sorry, you have been through hell this week too. I'm sorry.
Abigail: Mom, there's something else wrong, I can tell. What is it?
Jennifer: It's just complicated, honey.
Maggie: Thank you for coming so quickly.
Daniel: Now you'll tell me what's wrong?
Maggie: I'm sure you already know.
Daniel: [Sighs] I did have a sense of dread on my way over. Okay, this is just out of the blue, blind stab, shot in the dark. Have you been talking to Jennifer?
Maggie: I think it's wonderful that Nicole dropped the charges.
Daniel: Mm, yeah, it is.
Maggie: Just wonderful that Nicole finally did the right thing and stopped persecuting an innocent person.
Daniel: All right, whoa, let me get this straight. You actually like Jennifer more than Nicole? Wow, oh, wow.
Maggie: Don't be facetious. Maybe Nicole didn't succeed in ruining Jennifer's life, but I'm not sure that you're gonna be quite so lucky.
EJ: I'm not leaving here until you tell me exactly what happened, exactly why you changed your story.
Nicole: You're saying you will leave Salem and start a new life with me...if I agree to drop the charges against Jennifer?
EJ: Nikki... you told me... that Jennifer pushed you intentionally, right? And that she was threatening you beforehand. If someone kills your kid, you don't think she should pay for that? Hmm?
Nicole: I was wrong. EJ, I-I was wrong, okay? I-I-I realized--I realized, in the fall, I was hysterical, I was hysterical, and I just wanted to blame anyone, anyone that was there.
EJ: But you didn't blame anyone for pushing you down a flight of stairs, did you? You blamed Jennifer.
Nicole: [Sighs] EJ, that's my whole point. Jennifer Horton, I mean, really? Really? No matter how mad or how angry I am at her, Jennifer Horton would never do something like that. She would never do it.
EJ: You are lying.
Nick: I didn't say anything like that.
Gabi: Okay, well, then, let me hear you say that you don't have a problem with Will and Sonny being gay. Or with anybody being gay.
Nick: Why are we even talking about this?
Gabi: Because, Nick, because I love those guys, okay? And I have a problem with people who don't like other people just because of something they simply are, like Hispanic or African-American or gay or--
Nick: You really don't see the difference? I mean...
Gabi: You know what, Nick? I know what you mean.
Nick: Wait, Gabi. [Sighs]
Billie: Okay, look, I just, I wanted you to know that there was a problem. And I would like to help you solve it, but...to that end, I think maybe it's better that you don't tell your dad that I talked to you about this.
Sonny: You guys look solemn.
Billie: Oh, jeez, here I was thinking I was looking so hot and sassy today.
Sonny: Well, that too.
Will: You do, yeah, you do.
Billie: [Laughs] Thanks, boys. Listen, um, I'm gonna get some caffeine. I could use it. Nice to see you.
Sonny: You too. Nice seeing you.
Sonny: So what was that all about?
Will: That's what we were talking about earlier. Did something happen between you and my dad after I left?
Kristen: I didn't have a chance to mention it to you before. I'm really sorry about you losing your fiancée.
Brady: I didn't lose her. She died. And I don't want to talk about my personal life with you.
Kristen: Okay. There's really so much of your father in you...sense of humor, light touch.
Brady: I'm proud of any part of me that's like him.
Kristen: So are you here to serve papers? Because you are incredibly formal and uptight, mm-mm. We used to be family.
Brady: [Laughs] Let me get this straight. So--so the fact that there was a time when I didn't know anything about you, that trumps the fact that you are a liar, that you're a home wrecker, and an unsuccessful murderer.
Kristen: Well, we all know I made mistakes.
Brady: My God, you call them "mistakes." That's funny, "mistakes."
Kristen: I made a lot of mistakes, I made a lot of mistakes. But you, of all people, should believe in second chances. I've changed, I really, really have.
Brady: I know, you've really changed. We have your word on that, but that's all we have. Why are you stalking Marlena? Why are you chasing her around town, hmm?
Kristen: According to her, Brady. How come nobody ever asks for my side of the story? I mean, really. Everybody believes what she has to say without even questioning it. Why is that?
Brady: Why is that? I'll tell you why that is. Because she's a nice person, because she tells the truth. She doesn't lie.
Kristen: Okay, she is a nice person but very resistant to my apologies. I was thinking...you think it's possible that she's threatened by what John and I used to have? No, I mean, she wouldn't think that he still has feelings for me, right?
Brady: Oh, I-I think that might be a threat, if my dad had no standards at all and if you weren't so manipulative and cheap as you obviously are.
Daniel: My life is none of your damn business. And it's certainly not Jennifer's either.
Maggie: No? Then tell me you're not going off with Nicole to protect Jennifer.
Daniel: I am not going off with Nicole to protect Jennifer.
Maggie: Liar! The reason you are so angry and so defensive is because you know it's wrong.
Daniel: Okay, okay, let's just say that you're right about why I'm doing this. Is it wrong to protect Jennifer? Is it wrong to keep her out of prison for something that she did not do? Right or wrong?
Maggie: And is it wrong that, once again, Nicole gets everything her way?
Daniel: Maggie...trust me. Her baby is dead. Nicole is not getting everything her way.
Maggie: I'm sorry about that baby, and I am sorry for her pain, but you are going off with a woman who happily was going to railroad Jennifer for--and I will quote you--"something she didn't do." And that was her plan...until she got something that she wanted in return... you. That's not a good person, Daniel. Things don't work out for someone like that.
Daniel: Okay, well, maybe I'm not a good person either. Maybe we're compatible.
Abigail: "It's complicated"? That's code for "It's a big mess, and I'm not going to tell you about it."
Jennifer: Abigail, I think Daniel is the one who got Nicole to change her statement.
Abigail: Mom, who cares who did it? I-it's done.
Jennifer: Because now Daniel is leaving town with Nicole.
Abigail: Oh. Okay, so you think that he's doing that for you?
Jennifer: And I-I can't, I can't let him do that.
Nicole: You want to know what I owe you? Nothing.
EJ: You just don't want me to know why you changed your story. That means Jonas is involved, not that it really matters to me. The only thing that matters to me is that Jennifer pays for what she's done.
Nicole: Would you leave? Leave.
EJ: What you did, helping her go free...that was unforgivable.
Dr. Sedwick: Your baby is dead.
Nicole: [Crying] Jennifer didn't kill my baby. She couldn't have.
EJ: And just how do you know that?
Kristen: Just to be clear, I didn't slap you because you hurt my feelings, even though you did. I slapped you because nobody talks to me that way, not even you, Brady.
Brady: You know, I never--I never doubted Marlena for a second, but I see now what she's talking about.
Brady: Really. I think there's a possibility that you might believe your own line of crap, Kristen. I think you actually believe that you've turned into some acceptable human being, and that's...that is scary. You have changed, but it's not for the better. Have a good lunch.
Kristen: You don't scare me, Brady.
Brady: Well, then you're dumb too.
[Knock at door]
Nick: Gabi, please, at least talk to me. I'm so sorry. I upset you, and--and I-I didn't mean to.
Gabi: But you did. Look, I thought I knew you, but now I know I don't.
Will: So after I left, he stayed behind to harass you. Is that...
Sonny: I mean, maybe. Just a little bit. But that's what I was trying to tell you, is that he was pushing my buttons, okay? And I kind of overreacted.
Will: Okay, well, you didn't start it. It's not your fault. But why di--oh, why didn't you tell me, though? That is your fault.
Sonny: Because there's nothing to--he just wanted to know what took us so long to get to the door...and kind of, like, you know, what we were doing.
Will: Yeah, I imagine he would want to know that.
Sonny: But, see, that's when I made things worse, because I offered to tell him in detail what--it was really stupid, and I-I'm sorry.
Will: You don't have anything to be sorry about. But somebody does.
EJ: Why would you say that? That she couldn't have killed the baby.
Nicole: Because she didn't, EJ. I slipped down the stairs. I know that now, and I'm not going to punish her for something that she didn't do.
EJ: Plus you can't change.
Nicole: What? Wh-what is that supposed to mean?
EJ: Means you're born lying, and you'll be lying until the day that you die.
EJ: I have no idea what is going on, and I'm pretty sure you're not gonna tell me, so... all bets are off, my dear. I cut you and your friends a little break. I thought to myself, eh, what's an altered paternity test between friends, right? But you--I'm sure at Dr. Jonas' request--freed the woman who killed my son, so your amnesty, my dear, is over.
Maggie: [Laughing] Yeah, yeah, of course, that makes perfect sense.
Daniel: What is that supposed to mean?
Maggie: That you and Nicole are very compatible. Hmm. After all, she's a lying, scheming bitch, who, thanks to her history of said lying and scheming, is now needy and desperate and extremely lonely, and you...you are a great man who likes to take care of everyone. [Scoffing] Every female, that is.
Daniel: I can see why you don't want me to go. You have such a high opinion of me.
Maggie: Oh, God. [Clears throat] You know what? Things were so much easier when I thought that you were a predatory jerk...when I didn't love you.
Daniel: Hey, no, no, no, there's no crying. You--that's not--that's unfair.
Maggie: I'm sorry, you're just--you're dear. You are so important to me and to your daughter. I talked to Melanie today, and she is so heartbroken that you're planning to leave.
Daniel: She's...she's not here right now.
Maggie: Yeah, but she's coming back. She still thinks of Salem as her home, just as it is yours, and she agrees with me that this is a terrible mistake. The worst part is that it was my idea, wasn't it? I told you that Nicole would never forgive Jennifer because she'd keep running into her, so what did you do? You just ran off to Nicole with this big plan of how to solve everything. [Crying]
Daniel: Okay. I'm... you can come see me, and I will come back to visit.
Maggie: [Sobbing] Jennifer came to see me because she knew I'd understand. This is bad, Daniel. It's bad for you. We're not just afraid that we're gonna lose you. We're afraid you're gonna lose yourself. [Crying]
Daniel: I'm really sorry, but this is what I have to do. I'm--
Kristen: EJ, what a nice surprise.
EJ: Listen, I'm headed to the office. I'd like to see you.
Kristen: Wonderful. I'll be right there.
Lucas: [Clears throat] Well, I'm here. Go ahead, tell me what's going on.
Will: I have a chance to be happy, Dad. I finally like myself, I finally like my life, and I'm not going to let you screw it up.
Nick: [Sighs] Okay, I-I know that you think this is about hate or--or judgment, but it's not. And, honestly, it's more about me than--than it is about them.
Gabi: I don't understand.
Nick: Well, it's hard to explain, and...I didn't figure this all out on my own, okay? But when I was in prison, I had to wake up and face the person that I'd become, you know? And how I'd got there. It's not like I woke up one day and decided to be a bad person and do bad things. Do you understand?
Gabi: You think that Will and Sonny are bad people?
Nick: No, I don't. I absolutely don't. I...I think...I mean, Gabi, before I did all the terrible things that I did, somehow I-I got to this place where all I was thinking about was--was what I wanted and what I needed or what I thought I wanted and needed. But right and wrong, I didn't even think about that, even though, obviously, that's pretty important, you know? So I think you have to be really careful when you say, "Oh, that thing that God said is wrong, that's okay now." I don't think that Sonny and Will are bad people, but I think that the way that they live is wrong. And it's not like being Black or Hispanic because it's a choice. I have to be honest with you. I-I...I think it's wrong.
John: What's going on? Everything okay?
Brady: [Sighs] Um, no. I talked to Marlena this afternoon.
John: Ahh. Yeah, yeah, yeah, we had a disagreement about Kristen. But we're on the same page now.
Brady: Yeah, Dad, this is exactly what you don't need right now, okay? This--this new Kristen running around with all her latest software, causing problems with you and Marlena, it's like--
John: Hey, let me tell you something. The only way she can cause a problem is if we let her. Now I understand that Doc's got her guard up, and once upon a time, Kristen made our lives a living hell.
Brady: Mm-hmm. Well, now that I'm all grown up and stuff, would you mind telling me what the hell you saw in that woman?
EJ: I mean, I always knew that Nicole was pragmatic, but this is unbelievable.
Kristen: Maybe she's telling the truth. Maybe it was just a horrible accident.
EJ: I did not ask you to come here, so you could tell me something like that.
Kristen: You asked me to come here, so you could talk this out before you decide what to do. And your instincts were correct. You need to be very, very careful.
Nicole: [Exhales heavily] Oh, Hi.
Nicole: How was the hospital?
Daniel: Ugh, still a lot of paperwork I need to complete.
Daniel: What, what, is something wrong?
Nicole: Oh, I was just thinking that maybe, you know, we could leave for Hawaii tonight.
Daniel: Okay, no, I know it's hard getting out of the hospital and facing the real world, but we don't need to rush this.
Nicole: I think we have to.
Daniel: We don't.
[Knock at door]
Daniel: No, everything is gonna be just fine. It's gonna be perfect. Don't worry about it, I got this. Whoa, what's this about here?
Officer: Dr. Daniel Jonas?
Daniel: Yes, I am.
Officer: You're under arrest.
Daniel: Arrest for what? What are the charges?
Officer: Falsifying medical records. Hands behind your back. Cuff him.
Officer: Cuff him.
Daniel: What are you-- you... you, you dragged Maggie into this again?
Jennifer: No, Daniel, you wouldn't listen to me, so I had to do something.
Daniel: You know what you should do is live your life and stay the hell out of mine.
Daniel: No, stay--no, and you too. All right, just let it go, both of you.
Gabi: I just can't see how you think that being gay is a choice. I mean, do you--do you choose to be straight?
Nick: Gabi, um...I'm not trying to change your mind, and I don't want to change the way that you feel about them. It's true. I'm not comfortable around them, but I don't hate them, and...I'm really sorry that--that this has come between us.
Gabi: Nick. I think you're wrong.
Nick: Doesn't--doesn't your church say the same thing?
Gabi: We're talking about Will, okay? We're talking about your cousin, my friend.
Nick: Can you please believe me when I tell you that--that I love him and I want what's best for him?
Gabi: Yeah, I guess.
Nick: I meant what I said. I don't want this to come between us. The fact that I met such an amazing person makes me feel like I'm on the right path finally. You make me feel like...like I could be...the man that I've always wanted to be. You're so beautiful.
Lucas: When Sonny was complaining about me, did he happen to mention his behavior, or did he leave that out?
Will: He mentioned it, actually. He said that he feels bad. I, however, think that, since you practically broke down the door to his apartment, you kind of had that coming.
Lucas: I was trying to make sure you could say good-bye to your great-grandmother. I'm sorry, I thought that was important. Maybe you should have checked your messages. The whole situation could have been avoided, but instead, you just...
Will: Instead I what? What? I want to hear you say it. Come on.
Daniel: I think this is not how I wanted to say good-bye to either of you.
Jennifer: What, "Good-bye"?
Maggie: You said you weren't leaving for two weeks.
Daniel: I will call. You, I will call you. [Grumbling]
John: Well, son, it's kind of a simple story. Kristen...she was a good person, and Stefano changed her.
Brady: What, she had no choice in the matter?
John: [Groans] You always have a choice, but she went through a lot, and it didn't help that I fell back in love with Marlena.
Brady: [Sighs] You know, Dad, there are a lot of people in this world that go through loss and rejection and don't resort to things like kidnapping and attempted murder.
John: Yeah, well, she went off the rails, son. Part of me understands that.
Brady: Maybe so, Dad, maybe she went off the rails, but I'll tell you something. From what I saw today, she's nowhere near back on track.
Kristen: I have to tell you that this latest version of Nicole's is way more in keeping with the Jennifer Horton that I know.
EJ: You can leave.
Kristen: Oh, I can leave, can I? You asked me here for a reason. Because the intelligent part of you knows that you're way too emotional to sort this through on your own. You need to think before you act.
EJ: She was scared. She doesn't scare very easily.
Kristen: So you think the doctor threatened her, and that's why she changed her story?
EJ: No, he's some holistic hippie. He doesn't threaten, he cajoles.
Kristen: Oh. Well, then maybe he appealed to her better self.
EJ: She doesn't have a better self. Look, I'm pretty sure that it was Dr. Jonas that convinced her to change her story. That's not what she's hiding from me. There's something else, and I need to find out what that something is.
Nick: I'm sorry.
Gabi: Don't be.
Will: Say it, come on. I should have been checking my messages instead of...
Lucas: That's right, you should have been available to your family instead of hooking up with Sonny, which is what you were doing, right?
Kristen: You're right. If there is something else you need to know, you have to find out what it is before you decide what to do, because if you have somebody arrested or you make some kind of a declaration that isn't true--
EJ: Right, I get it, they could all get off scot-free.
Kristen: Yeah, well, you will get your justice, but time is everything. And it's not like there's other things you can't do in the meanwhile, right?
EJ: You're right. I need to keep a very close eye on Nicole.
Kristen: And on the doctor. Watch them very closely. And when the time is right, make your move.
John: You know, kid, I've got to run, but listen, don't worry about Kristen. She may be back in Salem, but she's not a threat to me or Doc. Thanks for the coffee.
Brady: You're welcome.
John: See you.
Brady: I'll see you. You're right. I'm going to make sure she's not a threat to anyone.
Maggie: I'm sorry. I just made things worse. I don't think there's anything else we can do.
Jennifer: That's not true. There is something.
Nicole: Oh, Daniel, thank God. Look, we--we need to leave, Daniel, now.
Daniel: Yes. Yes, we do. Because I was thinking exactly the same thing. We gotta go, come on.
