Brady: Look, I don't have the time.

Marlena: Then make the time. I want to know what's going on. [Hangs up phone] John said he was coming over here. Is he here?

Brady: Not now.

Marlena: But he was. I called him. He answered. He brushed me off. He sounded very upset.

Brady: I'm not surprised.

Marlena: Brady, did something happen here?

John: I want to know what's going on between you and Brady!

[Cell phone rings]

Rafe: Hey. I only have a minute.

Sami: Sorry, um, I'll make it fast. Look, Gabi went down and picked out a beautiful dress at the bridal boutique. I can send you a picture. But it's about 2% above the budget that you allotted. Is that all right?

Rafe: That's okay. Go ahead and get it. I want Gabi to have a good wedding. Anything else?

Sami: No, no, that's it. Happy New Year, Rafe.

Rafe: Yeah. Hey.

Nicole: Hey.

Rafe: Ready for our date?

Daniel: It's not uncommon with exposure. This guy's been on the streets for a long time.

Eric: The shelter, they're working on a spot in rehab.

Daniel: I think that's the best thing for him.

Eric: Thank you, doctor.

Daniel: Yeah.

Eric: It's really good of you to be working on New Year's Eve. I bet there's someplace else you'd rather be.

Abigail: Come on, Mom. I'm totally ready to beat you.

Jennifer: Sweetie, you do not have to keep me company tonight.

Abigail: Oh, no, no. Don't you do that. Don't you dare ditch me tonight. All my friends are coupled up, and I will have a terrible time if I go out there.

Jennifer: Oh, truly?

Abigail: Truly, yes. This is the only place I want to be and you're the only person that I want to be with.

Chad: It's gonna be New Year's Eve before you know it. Do you, uh, have any plans?

Abigail: Me? No.

Chad: Hmm.

Abigail: Not really, no. I mean, not unless you consider "playing board games with my mom at home" plans.

Chad: Mm.

Abigail: What about you?

Chad: Me? I haven't really given it much thought.

Abigail: Oh.

Johnny: Mom! Grandma got five new games!

Caroline: Yeah, and popcorn.

Sami: Whoa, aren't you just the luckiest man in Salem.

[Door shuts]

EJ: Second luckiest. Sounds like we're all going to start the new year right.

Brady: I want you to hear this from me first. Because I'm going to want the chance to explain, and it's gonna shock you. But all I ask is that you hear me out before you react, okay?

Marlena: All right.

Brady: I've been seeing Kristen DiMera. And we've...become romantically involved.

Kristen: It's not obvious, what's going on between Brady and me?

John: So are you just-- do you have feelings for my son?

Kristen: You're such an idiot.

Brady: I know this feels like a betrayal to you, but it's not. Please understand. This had nothing to do with you. And I don't want to hurt you. I don't. I didn't set out to get involved with Kristen. It's just something that took us...both by surprise, and-- wow, you are being awfully quiet.

Marlena: That's what you asked of me.

Brady: But it's like you're not even surprised.

John: So what is it? You don't care about him at all?

Kristen: I have all sorts of feelings for Brady. It's kinda hard not to. He's so fascinating. He's interesting. He's...exciting. He's mind-bendingly virile.

John: Is that all?

Kristen: Is that all? John, it's a pretty potent package.

John: Well, you see, it's not just physical, for Brady. He actually cares about you.

Kristen: Oh, Brady. Did he tell you that?

John: At length. You see, Kristen, Brady doesn't play games. The man is still reeling over losing Madison. That's probably why all this happened in the first place. Let me tell you something. He actually thinks that what you have is real. So, if this is just some fling that you're having, or worse...

Kristen: What would be worse?

John: A sick way of yours to try to make me jealous to get me to come back.

Kristen: Oh, my God. How do you fit that ego through the door? Do you really think everything is about you?

John: Not everything.

Kristen: Because it is. This is all about you, and what you me.

Nicole: Oh! Yep, got to keep these kneel thingies raised up so the old ladies don't trip. [Laughs] [Grunts]

[Kneeler bangs]

Rafe: There, I gotta say...

Nicole: [Sighs]

Rafe: Seeing you here...

Nicole: Twilight zone time?

[Hums twilight zone theme song]

Rafe: Yeah.

Nicole: I'm just kidding.

Rafe: A little surreal.

Nicole: God.

[Cell phone rings]

Nicole: Ooh. Cop stuff?

Rafe: No. Wedding stuff.

Nicole: Oh.

Rafe: Look at that.

Nicole: [Gasps]

Rafe: Gabi's wedding dress.

Nicole: Wow, it's gorgeous. That's a perfect cut for her, and--why is Sami texting you this?

Rafe: 'Cause Sami's helping with the wedding.

Nicole: Seriously? Why don't you just bang your head on the wall or run your foot over with your squad car?

Rafe: Yeah, yeah.

Nicole: Seriously? Why Sami?

Rafe: Listen, my mom is sick and Gabi needs help with the wedding. Sami's helping, okay?

Nicole: Not your ex-wife, the woman you swear you want out of your life.

Rafe: She is, okay? She's helping with the wedding and that's it. Now, can we please get out of here? And no more talk about Sami tonight.

Nicole: Oh...zipped.

Rafe: Yeah, double.

Nicole: Zip, zip. Double-zipped.

Sami: I didn't think Johnny was gonna let you go.

EJ: Right. Did you see his list of New Year's "revolutions"?

Sami: [Laughing] Yes. Adorable. Getting him to actually honor them, that will be the real trick.

EJ: Right. I liked his third one. "Be nice to Mommy."

Sami: [Laughs]

Johnny: Look! Mommy and Daddy are kissing.

Caroline: Well, [Clears throat] It's New Year's Eve, darling, you know? People kiss all the time on New Year's Eve. Yeah.

Sami: [Whispering] EJ, we're in front of the window.

EJ: Well, I was hoping that we might be able to go somewhere a little more private.

Sami: [Sighs]

EJ: Shall we?

Sami: [Sighs]

Marlena: I'm listening... and trying not to react, as you asked.

Brady: Thank you. I wish Dad would have done the same.

Marlena: Did you tell John about you and Kristen?

Brady: No, I didn't have to, because...he walked in on us.

Marlena: He walked in--

Brady: Yeah.

Marlena: Oh, no, no.

Brady: Yeah, yeah. I locked the door. Well, I thought I locked the door. And it was a very intimate moment.

John: So you never let go of me?

Kristen: Nope. But not the way you think. Do you really think that love never dies? Did you really think that you could leave me on the floor... on my knees... begging you to give me a chance, and I would just never get back up again?

John: Unbelievable. It's you.

Kristen: Yeah. It's me.

John: And I believed you. When you first came back to Salem, I...I actually thought I saw the woman that I fell in love with.

Kristen: The woman that you did everything you could to destroy? Yeah, well, I survived, thanks. I guess I owe you that much.

John: Oh, my God. Marlena was right.

Kristen: Oh! How did we get through three sentences without hearing that woman's name?

John: Can't believe you set this whole thing up, everything you did since you came back to Salem. The little girl at the Horton square that fell off her bike and got hurt.

Kristen: Mm-hmm, Pamela. Wasn't she great?

John: All those damn coincidences. You just used me to get to Brady.

Kristen: Not exactly, but it's funny how things work out.

John: So you hate me that much?

Kristen: Yes.

[Knocking on door]

Chad: Hey--

Abigail: Chad, hey.

Chad: Hi, um... I thought you and your mom could use a caffeine fix to get you to midnight.

Abigail: Thank you. That's really thoughtful of you.

Chad: Okay. Uh, so, bye.

Jennifer: This is great. Reinforcements. Because Abigail is about to beat me really badly at Monopoly. So I think that you should stay and hang out with us, because then it would be a fair fight.

Chad: Is it okay?

Abigail: Yes! Sure. Please.

Chad: Okay. [Clears throat]

[Door shuts]

Abigail: I would love to beat you too.

Chad: Not gonna happen. Let's go.

Abigail: Let's do it.

Chad: Come on.

[Jazz music playing]

Sami: So we're gonna watch the fireworks?

EJ: Yes. You do like fireworks, don't you?

Sami: You know I love fireworks. But I thought you wanted something a little more private.

EJ: All in good time.

Nicole: Seriously, I've been married, like, five times.

Rafe: Five?

Nicole: [Laughs]

Rafe: Wow, that' So how'd that work out?

Nicole: It blew.

Rafe: Yeah.

Nicole: But a few were really spectacular. So if you need any help, please let me, and, that way, you don't have to deal with Sami.

Rafe: No, I'm good, I'm good. It's--you know, everything's...

Nicole: Oh, boy. Okay. That's my fault. You know, I said her name, and, like Voldemort, she appeared in an ugly vapor.

Rafe: No.

Nicole: Oh, boy. Look at you, you're a goner.

Rafe: Huh?

Nicole: Yeah, you're toast!

Rafe: [Scoffs]

Nicole: Oh, you're so cute. You have it so bad for her.

Rafe: Stop.

Nicole: [Laughs]

Marlena: Are you saying that John walked in on you and Kristen together?

Brady: It wasn't the way I wanted it to happen, but if--

Marlena: Where is he?

Brady: I don't know. I tried to follow him, but-- I wanted to talk to him, but he wouldn't talk to me.

Marlena: Of course he wouldn't talk to you! I've got to find him.

Brady: Look, listen! Listen!

Marlena: Do you know where he is?

Brady: Yes, he was in the park when I left him, but listen, listen. I'm sorry. I know this is a lot right now, and I know you're concerned about Dad, I am too. But I'm also very concerned about you. I didn't--- I love you, and the last thing I wanted to do was upset you any more than I already have. And I'm sorry about that. I'm just hoping that you and Dad can find a way to--to get used to the situation.

Marlena: Situation?

Brady: Yeah, Kristen-- Kristen and me. She's in my life now. I want you two to understand and accept--

Marlena: Have you lost your mind? We will not accept that!

Kristen: I did everything I could to make you happy. I turned myself inside out for give you what you wanted, but, uh, all Marlena had to do was walk in the door.

John: It wasn't like that.

Kristen: We were one minute from being married.

John: What are you talking about?

Kristen: At our wedding! When Marlena and I were freed from that room, I thought everything was gonna be okay. All you had to do was finish your vow! All you had to do was say two little words: "I do." But Marlena walked in, and you dropped my hand. In the middle of our wedding vows, you dropped my hand! And you went to Marlena, and you never looked back at me!

John: I don't remember it like that.

Kristen: Do you remember this? Do you remember me on my knees? I was begging you to stay. And you looked at me like I was... like I was something stuck to the bottom of your shoe.

John: Well, Kristen, after what you did to Marlena and Susan--

Kristen: For you, John! I'd never loved anybody before. You made me believe. I trusted that you meant it. I thought you meant it when you said you were gonna walk away from Marlena, and that it was gonna be me from then on.

John: I did mean it.

Kristen: Until you didn't. And--and you went back to your precious Marlena.

John: Kristen, it really wasn't that simple.

Kristen: It was pretty simple, 'cause you looked at I was a piece of trash. You threw me aside. You didn't care what you did to me.

John: This is what you've held onto?

Kristen: You're so transparent. You don't give a damn. You're just trying to neutralize me. You think that if you pretend you care and you give a damn about me, that I'm gonna stay away from Brady. I'm not.

John: You know, he's really just an innocent in all this. You don't need to hurt him.

Kristen: Who says I'm gonna hurt him?

John: You're gonna break his heart, don't do that.

Kristen: Oh, no, no, no! No, I'm gonna break your heart! I'm taking your son away from you.

John: No, you won't do that.

Kristen: I already have. My gorgeous young man... cares about me. He's determined that the two of us are together, even if it means turning his back on you.

John: No, he wouldn't do that.

Kristen: Of course he wouldn't do that! Because your relationship with Brady is perfect, isn't it? I mean, you were never careless with him the way you were with me, were you? Or you never neglected him or made him doubt your love for him?

John: You are a bitch.

Kristen: You know what's interesting?

John: You're such a--

Kristen: Brady and I have... so much in common that way. I don't really even need to talk about it, because there's just so much between us already, know what? He's falling in love with me.

John: Damn it, woman! You stay away from my son! Do you hear me?

Kristen: [Laughs]

Eric: Thank you, Dr. Jonas.

Daniel: Yeah, yeah. It was very nice to meet you. Yeah.

Eric: Same here. You know, we share a mutual friend, Nicole Walker.

Daniel: Oh, that's right. Yeah, she's working at the church. How's that going?

Eric: Not bad, surprisingly.

Daniel: Mm, that is unexpected.

Eric: Mm, Nicole, she's pretty resilient.

Daniel: Yeah, well, she got hit pretty hard. I'm so sorry.

Eric: From what I hear... it's not your fault, Daniel.

Daniel: Mm, some of it was.

Eric: Well, she's better, and she's accepted that your heart is elsewhere.

Daniel: Thank you, Father. Thank you.

Eric: You're welcome.

Daniel: All right.

Chad: All right, what do you got? Show me. What does it say?

Abigail: It's pretty good. "Advance to Illinois Avenue." Thank you.

Jennifer: Um...

Chad: Oh, you know what? That just so happens to be my property.

Abigail: No!

Chad: Oh! Booyah!

Jennifer: That's not great. That's bad, very bad.

Abigail: Oh, shoot.

Chad: Show me the money. Show me the money. Cough it up. Let's do it.

Abigail: Fine.

Jennifer: 20 bucks, 20.

Abigail: Cash for your...

Jennifer: Wait, "with one house, 100."

Abigail: Pitiful little property.

Chad: Thank you.

Abigail: No!

Chad: Keep it coming, keep it coming.

Jennifer: Wow, this is very gratifying, really. I knew you would be good at this.

Abigail: Thanks, Mom.

Chad: Well, I taught Abigail everything she knows about this game.

Abigail: And after those quick two minutes...

Chad: Oh, whatever. Get out of here. Go.

Abigail: Okay, okay. Stop throwing it! Seriously! Nothing that's buttered! 'Cause it's really hard to get out.

Jennifer: Oh, stop it, honey.

Abigail: It's true!

Jennifer: You know what? I'm gonna go make some more popcorn. Just take me out for this one round, okay?

Chad: Okay, thank you.

Jennifer: I'll be right back.

Abigail: All right, big shot, now that you're all warmed up, I'm not gonna go so easy on you.

Chad: Hey, um... you sure it's okay that I'm here right now?

Abigail: Yeah. Yeah. I'm glad that you stopped by.

[Dice rattling]

Abigail: Okay.

Rafe: No, I'm good, okay? I just wasn't expecting to see her tonight.

Nicole: It's not gonna be a lousy night now, is it?

Rafe: No, it is not, okay?

Nicole: Okay.

Rafe: Look, forget them.

Nicole: Okay.

Rafe: All right?

EJ: You know, I actually have a, um... special bottle of champagne. Chad has it at the coffeehouse. Do you mind if I just run over?

Sami: Uh, no, but you're cutting it close, aren't you? It's almost midnight.

EJ: I won't miss it. [Kisses] [Blows kiss]

Nicole: Okay, okay. Look, go, now's your chance. She's alone. Go.

Rafe: What?

Nicole: EJ. Look, he left her alone. Go say something to her.

Rafe: Like what?

Nicole: Like, happy New Year? Come on! You know how it's done.

Rafe: How what is done? No. Listen, I told you--

Nicole: You're wasting precious time.

Rafe: No, 'cause I'm not gonna leave you alone, okay?

Nicole: Well, I'm gonna leave you alone, because I have an errand to run, so there.

Rafe: Oh, Nicole.

Nicole: Why don't you just go? It'll be great. Oh, look at that, a glass of champagne. Okay, bye.

[Departing footsteps]

Rafe: [Sighs]

Marlena: Of all the people in the world, Brady, why do you suppose she chose you?

Brady: Well, for one thing, it's more like I chose her. I pursued her.

Marlena: I know it must seem like that to you.

Brady: Wow, you think almost as little of me as you do her.

Marlena: No, no, Brady. I think you're a wonderful man who deserves so much better than this. And I-I can see how much you want to believe that she is a changed woman. I wish that were true. Brady, it's not true. It's not true. Look... look, I-I want you to be careful, but I've got to go. I've got to find John.

[Door opens]

John: Savage, twisted, manipulative bitch, you will not use my son!

Kristen: Careful.

John: I will do everything in my power...

Kristen: Careful.

[Loud knock on door]

Security: Hotel security. Open the door, please.

Kristen: You want me to answer that? [Puffs]

Security: I came down the hall, and I heard shouting.

Kristen: I know, I'm--I'm so sorry.

Security: Ma'am, are you all right?

Kristen: Um, yeah. I am now, um... my guest was just leaving.

John: [Softly] You will not hurt my son. I'll see to that.

Security: Are you sure that you're okay?

Kristen: I am now.

Security: We can put that guy on a watch list, you know.

Kristen: I-I don't think that's necessary, but it's very good to know. Thank you. [Laughs]

[Cell phone rings]

Abigail: Oh, you want that property, it's gonna cost you.

Chad: Wow. This is starting to feel like a DiMera family dinner.

Abigail: Now I'm scared.

Chad: Don't be. Everyone got a free pass on New Year's Eve.

[Cell phone rings]

Abigail: Oh, good. It's my mom!

Chad: How far is the kitchen from here?

Abigail: [Laughs] No, she went out for a walk.

Chad: Okay, wait a minute. Is she mad? Does she feel like the third wheel? 'Cause I can go.

Abigail: No, no. She invited you, remember?

Chad: Okay, then, what? She's outside, like, wandering around by herself?

Abigail: No, I don't think that she's by herself.

Daniel: Jenn?

Jennifer: Hey.

Daniel: Hey, I would've called sooner, but it's nuts here with the holidays.

Jennifer: No, I understand.

Daniel: Yeah, I wish we could've rung in the new year together.

Jennifer: I know, wouldn't that be great?

Sami: Hey.

Rafe: Hey.

Sami: Did you get the, uh, picture I texted you? Gabi's wedding dress?

Rafe: I did. Yes, it's nice.

Sami: I know it costs more than you planned.

Rafe: No, no, no. You're right. Definitely worth it.

Sami: Yeah.

Rafe: Kind of your style.

Sami: What?

Rafe: The...nothing.

Sami: No, tell me.

Rafe: No, nothing. It's just, um...the dress. It reminded me of--of your dress. Not exactly.

Sami: I'm surprised you remembered.

Rafe: I-I don't. I was... so where's EJ?

Sami: He went to go get us some special champagne.

Rafe: Of course.

Sami: And you're here with Nicole? What's up with that?

Nicole: Oh! Look who's here. It's my ex, ex, ex-husband.

EJ: Nicole. Ah. Party started early, I see.

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

EJ: What would the nuns think about that?

Nicole: Oh, well, they gave me the night off for good behavior. So I could spend it on bad behavior.

EJ: Thank you.

Nicole: Oh.

EJ: Indeed.

Nicole: Ooh, wow.

EJ: Nicki.

Nicole: [Gasps] That is nice. Oh.

EJ: Give me the bottle.

Nicole: This bottle? Oh.

EJ: Give me the bottle.

Nicole: You'll have to come get it. [Humming] Oh! Where's the fire? Come on. [Gasps]

EJ: Nicki!

Nicole: Oops.

Marlena: John, I'm trying to find you. Please call me as soon as you get this.

[Door shuts]

Eric: Hey, Mom.

Marlena: Oh, hey, sweetie. Where are you heading?

Eric: I'm heading down to the men's shelter, delivering some food.

Marlena: Oh, of course you are.

Eric: Happy New Year.

Marlena: Well, I don't know.

Eric: Hey, Mom. What's wrong?

Marlena: Oh, honey, things are just so messed up, and I-- I could have stopped it. At least I...could have kept it from getting any worse.

Eric: Okay, hold on. What--

Marlena: No, no, no. I-I really messed up, and I will never forgive myself.


Marlena: John! John. I've been trying to reach you.

John: Yeah, my phone's off.

Marlena: Uh-huh, are you okay?

John: I need a drink. And to talk to you. Alone.

Marlena: I'm so sorry. Uh...

[Door shuts]

Marlena: I'll call you.

Eric: Yeah.

Marlena: Yeah.

[Door shuts]

Brady: Hey.

Kristen: [Whimpers]

Brady: What? What?

Kristen: Thank God you're here. I'm so glad you're here.

Brady: Of course, I'm here. What's--

Kristen: Oh, God, I was fr-- are you okay?

Brady: Kristen, Kristen...

Kristen: Let me look at you.

Brady: Hold on. No, no, no.

Kristen: Are you okay?

Brady: What is wrong with you? What is wrong?

Kristen: I was afraid you weren't gonna--I was afraid you weren't gonna come.

Brady: No, I'm here, I'm here. What's going on?

Kristen: Your father, he came here. He was so out of control.

Brady: Hold on, hold on. He came here?

Kristen: Yeah, I don't know-- I don't know what you said to him, but he's--he's convinced-- he--he--he--

Brady: Okay, okay, settle down, settle down.

Kristen: [Sobbing]

Brady: It's okay. It's all right. It's all right.

Jennifer: This is the dessert that we had to skip on our date.

Daniel: Thank you. You didn't have to come all this way. The crazies are all out.

Jennifer: Oh, that's probably why I felt so at home then. But really, this is, um... the only place I wanna be right now.

Rafe: Hold on a sec. You know Nicole and I are just friends, right?

Sami: Yeah, sure. I mean, it's your life. Like, I just, um... you know, and about Christmas... I'm not mad. I mean, if you're avoiding me.

Rafe: Good to know.

Sami: have to see this.

Rafe: Hmm? [Laughs] Look at that.

Sami: [Laughs] And check the...yeah. She couldn't let that penguin out of her sight for a second. Sydney took a bath with him.

Rafe: Whoa, what is she doing on top of the dryer?

Sami: Well, I had to put Rafe in the perma-press cycle. And she didn't want him to be alone.

Rafe: Rafe?

Sami: That's his name. She knows where he came from. And, um, I know you went out of your way to get that penguin for Sydney, and...the kind of thing you do all the time. I mean, the truth is you're a're gonna be a great dad.

Rafe: Sure. Yeah.

[Cell phone rings]

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Sami: You should check that.

Rafe: Should I? Thanks.

Sami: It's the least you deserve.

Nicole: Oh, come on, now. I can fix this. Let me fix this.

EJ: You know what? Just leave me alone. Hey, Nicki, just leave it!

Nicole: What? Oh, come on, that's what they all say. How can I help if you don't let me make it better?

EJ: Just--

Nicole: Let me make it better. I need to make amends, EJ.

EJ: You want to make amends? Do yourself a favor. Go to church in the morning and atone, all right? But for right now, you can...

Nicole: You don't have time for me? Hmm? When you needed an "insta-wife," you had time for me. But now you don't have time for me? Huh? You don't have time?

EJ: Nicki, stop, okay? You're drunk. And this conversation is not going to go the way you want it to.

Nicole: Come on. I'm trying, I really am. I mean, have you ever seen the inside of a convent bathroom?

EJ: No! Mercifully, I have not.

Nicole: You're right. No mercy. I mean, there's no mirrors in there, there's no makeup cases. There's nowhere to put your facial products. I feel like I'm living like a nun.

EJ: Oh, I'm sure you are the only drunk nun in town.

Nicole: Come on, it just hit me. Come on, now.

EJ: Oh, I can only imagine.

Nicole: Look, I'm trying here, let me try, let me try.

EJ: Stop. Nicki...

Nicole: What?

EJ: Just stop.

Nicole: What?

EJ: It's disorienting to see you apply yourself this way.

Nicole: Imagine how I feel.

EJ: I don't think it's any wonder that you've gone off the deep end, especially tonight. Listen...just stop. Stop working so hard. All right? No I'm serious. Can you just let it be?

Nicole: I'm not working hard.

EJ: When will you understand you don't need to plan and scheme--

Nicole: Oh, I'm not planning and scheming.

EJ: Oh, my goodness, is that the time?

Nicole: Seriously, don't look at the time, EJ, come on. Wait a minute, wait!

EJ: Nicki.

Nicole: EJ!

EJ: Nicki.

[Champagne bottle hits table]

Marlena: Want to slow down some?

John: Not really. It's just starting to work.

Marlena: Honey, I talked to Brady. I think I have an idea of what's going on here.

John: Oh, do you now?

Marlena: He said you walked in on him with Kristen. I'm sorry, that must have been a terrible shock.

John: Not your fault.

Marlena: Where have you been?

John: I went to see Kristen. See hates me, Doc, and Brady is her revenge.

Marlena: She said that out loud?

John: I got to find him. This is all gonna end to tonight.

Marlena: Here, here, I will call him.

John: He's not picking up his phone. And he's not at the house.

Marlena: Then you think he's ov--

John: Only one place he can be.

Marlena: Okay, okay.

Brady: I want you to tell me exactly what happened, okay?

Kristen: Okay. Um...your dad, I mean, understandably, I guess, he was just really upset. I mean, he thinks that I'm using you, you know, to get him back. But I told him that that was insane, that I'm not interested. But I guess he just can't fathom it.

Brady: But he's seen how you go out of your way to avoid them.

Kristen: I know. You can't be surprised, though, Brady. This was what I was afraid of when John and Marlena found out about us.

Brady: I know, I know. Me too, me too.

Kristen: Anyway, I'm just so grateful that security heard him.

Brady: What? What?

Kristen: Well, I told you, your dad was really upset. Really upset.

Brady: Did he touch you? Did he--did he attack you? Did he touch you?

Kristen: I don't think he realized he had his hands on me, Brady, he was so upset, honestly.

Brady: Well, I'm sorry that happened.

Kristen: It's not your fault.

Brady: Well, maybe I set him off. I told him everything. I told him how we feel about each other. I told him that we couldn't fight it. I told him... told him everything. Maybe it was more than the guy could handle.

Kristen: You're just talking the truth, right?

Brady: Still, Marlena's-- she's not taking it very well either.

Kristen: You saw her?

Brady: Mm-hmm. And she was--

Kristen: Obviously convinced that I have some horrible agenda.

Brady: Oh, yeah, and she-- she thinks that I'm an idiot for not seeing through it.

Kristen: That is so condescending. It's like she doesn't even know you.

Brady: Oh, she patted me on the cheek like I was five. She still thinks I'm a kid. Yeah.

Kristen: You know, they both need to see you for the man that you are now. I don't mean to be hard on them, but...look, I understand. We're all just trying to do the best we can. I just... how's this ever gonna work?

Brady: I'll tell you. Time. We're gonna give it time. My dad's gonna cool off, and I'm gonna talk to him. I promise you, this is gonna be fine. Everything is gonna be fine.

Sami: Oh, it's almost midnight. I should go find EJ.

Rafe: Yeah, guess I better go find Nicole.

Here it is!

All: Ten, nine...

EJ: Nicole, I need to go.

Nicole: Nope, wait, wait. Wait, EJ, come on. What you were saying before, it was so...God, it was so deep. Can you just say it again? Say it again for me, please?

All: One! Happy New Year!

[Cheering, horns tooting]

[Auld Lang Syne plays]

Sami: Happy New Year, Rafe.

Rafe: Happy New Year.

Abigail: Yes!

Chad: No, no, no!

Abigail: Oh, yeah. That's what I'm talking about. I own you.

Chad: I can't believe that. I can't believe--what are you gonna do? You gonna spike the board, do a little end zone dance?

Abigail: Maybe I should. Something like that?

Chad: I should probably not have said that.

Abigail: Oh, yeah. I won...

Chad: Don't do that. I--you cheated! You totally cheated!

Abigail: I did not cheat! Why are you such a baby?

Chad: You did!

Abigail: I did not cheat!

Chad: Okay, I--whatever.

Abigail: I totally did not cheat. You wish that I cheated.

[Fireworks whizzing from afar]

Abigail: Did you hear that?

Chad: Yeah. Does that-- uh-oh.

Abigail: It's midnight!

Both: Happy New Year!

Abigail: Happy New Year! Yes! Come here.

Chad: Okay, all right.


[Fireworks whizzing, popping]

Jennifer: There they are.

Daniel: Oh, boy. Uh-oh. It's midnight. And you're missing the fireworks.

Jennifer: No, I'm not.

EJ: And it's midnight.

Nicole: Midnight! Happy New Year!

EJ: Do not-- hold on. Would you justó

Sami: Rafe.

[Party horns tooting]

[Cheers and applause]

Kristen: You're right. You're right. It has to work out, right? It has to. Your dad just needs some more time.

Brady: Mm-hmm.

Kristen: Right? Champagne.

Brady: Don't you... let it get to you.

[Fireworks whizzing, popping]

Kristen: Champagne?

[Champagne pours]

Brady: Yeah, don't you hear that?

Kristen: Oh.

Brady: That must be midnight.

Kristen: Great, well, some happy new year, huh?

Brady: Hey. It is.

Kristen: You know what? It is.

Brady: Yeah. You know, I kind of feel like it's a--it's a new start for me.

Kristen: Yeah, me too.

Marlena: John! John!

John: Get the hell away from her!

Marlena: What are you doing?
