Eric: I'm done. I can't go back to the priesthood.
Nicole: Why? They cleared you. They listened to what I said, and they cleared you.
Eric: Yeah, that's right.
Nicole: Are you saying you don't want to be a priest anymore?
Eric: I can't.
Nicole: Well, why not? I thought that's what you wanted to be. That's why we're here, right?
Eric: It doesn't matter what I want. It's not a choice I can make. My vocation is gone. It's over.
Eve: Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, Paigey.
Paige: Mom --
Eve: You know how much JJ means to Jennifer, and if you talk to him, and he talks to her, I know...
Paige: Look, Mom...
Eve: That she will listen to him, and she will stop fighting us, and we will get what is rightfully ours!
Paige: No, Mom, you -- no, no, you got it all wrong. I didn't say I'd go to JJ about all this. I wouldn't even know how.
Eve: [Exhales] But wait, you said that you could help.
Paige: I can.
Eve: But... [Exhales] Well, Paige, what are you talking about?
JJ: No, there's not gonna be anyone else but Paige. Not ever. I'm in love with her, Mom.
JJ: Just -- no, just forget that I said anything, just anything at all.
Jennifer: No, I'm not gonna forget that you said anything. You and I really need to talk about it.
Theresa: Excuse me.
Marlena: Actually, I heard you were taking your break here.
Theresa: Yes, and I have to get back to work.
Marlena: Well, I'd like to get some things clear about what happened to John.
Theresa: You already know everything that I know.
Marlena: Well, Theresa, I'm just not sure that I do.
Brady: Hey, um, your office said that you would be here.
Aiden: Yeah, any news on your father?
Brady: No, no, uh, no change, but that's not what I wanted to talk to you about, actually. Uh... do you remember this place the same way that I do?
Aiden: You mean when we first met, and you wanted to take a swing at me? Is that...
Aiden: You're not here to try it again, are you?
Daniel: [Dreaming] You lying bitch. Chloe is alive.
Kate: Well, you just keep telling yourself that. Son of a bitch!
Daniel: You told Eric I was in love with you?
Nicole: I was desperate, Daniel. I didn't know what else to say. I had to say something.
Eve: I'm sorry you feel that way.
Daniel: You want to know how I feel? Used, and I don't like it. [Breathing heavily]
Kristen: Bad dream?
Daniel: Really bad.
Kristen: [Exhales] What was it about?
Daniel: Well, in a way, it was all about you.
Kristen: You were dreaming about me? I'm so flattered.
Kristen: What was I wearing?
Daniel: You? You were in a bright orange jumpsuit.
Kristen: Are you sure about that? A jumpsuit?
Kristen: You know, Daniel... [Exhales] We're gonna be stuck in this stupid room until you accept that you're not getting out of here, so until my men find us, can't we at least try to have a civil conversation?
Daniel: Hmm, no, no. [Exhales]
Kristen: Okay. Well, then I guess you're forcing me to use my imagination when it comes to your dream, and I have to warn you, I have a very vivid imagination.
Daniel: Oh, I bet you do. Okay. It was a dream about certain women, about all the lies I've been fed and the women who fed them to me. And you, sweetheart... [Laughing] You are just--you're just the latest in a long, long line.
Kristen: Hmm, all those lies, all those women. So where in that line is Jennifer?
JJ: You know what, mom, it's--uh, you can save your breath, okay? 'Cause I know what's coming. "You're too young to be in love, and you don't really know what it means," and--
Jennifer: Well, I wasn't going to say anything of the sort, you little creep. I was going to say that I am really, really happy for you. You didn't see that coming, did you?
Jennifer: [Laughs] And it couldn't happen to a nicer kid. Mm.
Jennifer: And I promise you, I won't be the one standing in your way.
Paige: I meant I could help about the money.
Eve: The money?
Paige: It's going to be a problem for you until the lawsuit gets settled.
Paige: That could be a long time, and it could be for nothing. You could even lose.
Eve: No, that is not happening.
Paige: [Exhales] Okay, but I still want to do my part, ease the burden a little.
Eve: You are so, so sweet, you know that? But, honey, even if you were to get a job, you're starting Stanford in two weeks, come on!
Paige: That's what I mean. I'm not going.
Paige: I'm gonna stay here in Salem until--
Eve: Over my dead body!
Eric: A vocation is a calling from God. And right now, I am not in the state of grace, and I cannot receive the calling. Not anymore.
Nicole: I don't understand. The cardinal said you could go back.
Eric: The cardinal said the church would have me back. But if I went back, then it would be a lie.
Nicole: Why? Why would it be a lie? You were a great priest. You could still be a great priest.
Eric: Because I would be a hypocrite... because of what I feel inside. You say you don't understand, well, let me spell it out for you. I feel the way I do because of you. I blame you, Nicole. I hate you.
Nicole: You hate me? Okay. I understand you being mad at me, but hate? You're Eric. You don't hate.
Eric: I have a plane to catch.
Nicole: No, no, no, no, wait. Wait, this doesn't make any sense. You get your job back, and now you don't want it, but yet you're still mad at me for taking it away from you?
Eric: This is about who I've become.
Nicole: Oh. I see, and I've made you that way. Is that right? Oh, Eric. When did you get so mean? You just want to blame me for everything. But that's not the way it works, damn it. It is not the way it works! [Crying]
Brady: As a matter of fact, this--this is about the first time we met. I-I'm embarrassed about the way I was to you, and I thought it was long overdue that I apologized.
Aiden: Look, it's okay. Water under the bridge.
Brady: That's kind of you to say. But the fact is, whether it was self-defense or not, I put my own father in the hospital, Aiden, and I could have done the same to anybody. I wanted to you to know that I was seriously sorry.
Aiden: Brady, trust me, okay? Forget it. We all make mistakes, right?
Brady: Yeah. I'm just trying to undo as-- as many as I can.
Theresa: I've told Brady and the police everything I know, and they're satisfied. But you know better than everyone, right? You just know there's more?
Marlena: Well, I've got a gut feeling about it.
Theresa: Oh, one of those.
Marlena: You see, Brady doesn't remember what happened that night. But something is eating him up inside, and I thought you might know what that something is.
Theresa: Sorry, no, there's nothing else.
Marlena: Oh, well, I hope that's true.
Theresa: And now I gotta get back to work.
Marlena: Hello? Hi, yes, Brady, what-- I'll be right there.
Eve: Absolutely not.
Paige: Oh, I love the way we talk things over.
Eve: No, you are going to Stanford.
Paige: Yes, I am. Just not in two weeks. I'll take a year's deferment.
Eve: No, you won't!
Paige: [Exhales] Could you just listen to me for, like, 30 seconds? I'll take classes here, so I won't get behind, but I'll be saving us a ton of money, not just for tuition, but room and board.
Eve: Sweetheart, sweetheart, paying for your education is my responsibility, and I've told you from the get-go, it is not an issue, okay?
Paige: At the get-go, you hadn't started a lawsuit.
Paige: You hadn't hired lawyers. That stuff gets crazy expensive. Let me help. And we'll have time together, another year.
Eve: Mm. And you won't have to leave behind JJ, right? Oh, I knew it! That boy talked you into this, didn't he? Didn't he?
JJ: Okay, you're right. I didn't see that coming.
Jennifer: Come on, why not? I think it's wonderful that you're in love. Love is a good thing.
JJ: But you couldn't be thrilled about who it is that I'm in love with.
Jennifer: I'm crazy about Paige.
JJ: And her mom is suing you.
Jennifer: Yeah. Eve is not my favorite person in the world. But, honey, let me tell you what I do know. I do know that you don't choose who you fall in love with, and it's really nobody else's business. So you just be happy being happy with Paige.
JJ: God, you aren't just the best mother, you're the best person.
Jennifer: And that makes you sad?
JJ: It just makes me sad that I did all that stuff to you and Daniel. Why couldn't I have been like you are now? Just why did I have to ruin it for the two of you?
Daniel: Jennifer never lied to me. If anything, she was too truthful.
Kristen: Mm. I haven't had to worry about that too much in my life.
Daniel: I'll bet you haven't.
Daniel: Shh, shh, shh.
Kristen: [Muffled speech]
Man: We already looked in there.
Other man: Well, they can't have gone far. The doc's car is still here, and I got his phone.
Man: I think it's time for some backup, before he gets away. Come on.
Kristen: [Muffled shout] Don't you think this would be a good time for you to give up, Daniel?
Kristen: They're not gonna be pretty when they're angry. And I don't know if I'm gonna be able to hold them back when they find us. And believe me, they will find us.
Kristen: You know, Daniel... Daniel!
Daniel: Shh, shh.
Kristen: You might be able to get out of this hotel on your own, ducking in and out of rooms, but with me up by your side, you're not gonna be able to do it. So just go, go on! Get out of here.
Daniel: Get out? Oh, what are you gonna do, be "merciful", huh? Isn't that the word you used? No, you had me tied up and beaten to get what you want. But you know what? Forget about me. Why don't we talk about what you did to Eric? Oh, and Brady. But see, you made a mistake, Kristen. Yeah, you showed your face to me. And now you're gonna pay for all you've done.
Kristen: I'm gonna pay?
Kristen: How are you gonna do that? 'Cause you're an amateur.
Kristen: You're gonna make a mistake. You're not gonna get out of here.
Daniel: Okay, shh. [Shushing] Don't say a word.
Daniel: Shh. Quiet. Shh.
Jennifer: Honey, I don't want you to worry about me and Daniel. Really, it's more complicated than you think, and... really, in the end, whatever you did, uh, didn't make things worse for us now.
JJ: I don't know, maybe. It's just, I screwed up a time when you guys could have been together, and you could have been happy. I'm just sorry that I was that guy, you know, just the angry guy--
Jennifer: You know, you were just a kid. And now I stand here, and I look at you, and you have just grown up into this great son and a great brother and a man that your dad would be so proud of. And that Paige is a lucky girl, that's all I have to say.
Eve: So when did JJ put this idea in your head, sweetheart? I knew I shouldn't have trusted him with you.
Paige: You have it all wrong! This is my idea. JJ doesn't even know about it yet.
Paige: [Exhales] Do you think I'm lying to you?
Eve: No. I want to talk about this, sweetheart, but I've got a doctor's appointment, so...
Paige: There's nothing to talk about.
Eve: No? Really? How about the fact that against all odds, you nailed high school? You earned--you earned Stanford, sweetheart, and having me for a mother is not gonna screw that up. Oh, baby girl, you've gone--
Eve: No, look at me. You've gone so far past me, and your life is just beginning. Oh, God only knows how amazing your future is gonna be. Nothing, nothing is gonna stand in your way, okay? Nothing, okay? [Sighs]
Paige: So how do you really feel?
Nicole: I never have and I never will deny that I made a very big mistake. I lied to you, and that was a horrible thing. But now you've lost your calling, and that is somehow my fault?
Eric: You changed me.
Nicole: Oh, well, if that's all it took for you to go from priest of the year to father hate and anger, then maybe that vocation wasn't all it was cracked up to be.
Eric: Yeah, well, maybe.
Nicole: Eric, no. If your God made it so easy for you to lose your vocation, then maybe you weren't supposed to have it. You know, you accused me of rape... and then you found out it was Kristen, and you found out how wrong you were, but we got through it. Why? Because I forgave you.
Nicole: You were a priest! And we all know what I am, we all know. So how is it possible that I could be more forgiving than you?
Eric: You don't think I thought about that? It's the worst thing ever.
Eric: It's the most shameful. Are you dealing with hot flashes during menopause?
Daniel: Come on, come on. All right, I'm gonna take that gag out of your mouth, but first I am gonna tie you up right over here. You know what? Don't ever say I didn't do anything for you. Sit down.
Daniel: All right, now. If you wanna scream, that truck driver's gonna hear you. So I want you to think--want you to think about what you want, all right?
Daniel: Stop. I'm gonna pull the gag out, and you are not gonna scream, are you? Are you? No, you are not.
Daniel: There you go. Look at that.
Daniel: I think I made my point. 'Cause if you scream, truck driver's gonna probably want to rescue you, and then you got that whole problem of you being a little felon on the run.
Kristen: Oh, just shut up. So this is your genius plan, just to jump in a random truck that's backed up to the hotel loading dock--this is it?
Daniel: Well, I don't know if it's as much genius as improvisation. 'Cause this delivery truck-- it's a laundry truck. It's gonna make a lot of stops. So your guys, they're not gonna figure out where we went.
Kristen: Yeah, well, even if you do manage to figure out how to get to Salem without a phone and without money, you are forgetting one very dangerous thing.
Daniel: Oh, yeah? And what's that?
Kristen: Get off me. My father.
Anne: Your favorite person, Abigail Deveraux, she just, uh, resigned.
Anne: I don't know. I intend to find out. She sent her resignation letter directly to the administrator, but, uh, I think there's a little more there than meets the eye.
Theresa: Well, who cares if there is, Anne?
Anne: Wha-- I'm sorry. What's wrong with you? I thought you would love this. Is something going on with John Black?
Brady: [Exhales] I don't know, Kayla. I don't know.
[Knock on door]
Brady: Marlena, thanks for coming.
Marlena: Oh, sure, what's up?
Kayla: Please, Marlena, sit down. Please. Um, I was just telling Brady that I have consulted with some of the professionals on staff here about John's situation, and, um, they think that some decisions need to be made.
Brady: Just tell her.
Kayla: The idea is that the time is right and appropriate to move John from his current room to our chronic care wing and then make some plans?
Kayla: The question is does John belong in a hospital like this? Or would a, um, long-term care facility be a better fit?
Brady: I think what you're really saying is you're -- you're giving up on him.
JJ: [Opens door] Hey, my mom is out right now.
Eve: I'm here to see you.
JJ: Um, look, I really shouldn't talk to you.
Eve: This isn't about the lawsuit, JJ. It's something more important. It's about Paige.
JJ: Is she okay?
Eve: Well, I am here to make sure that she is. You say you care about her.
JJ: I do.
Eve: All right. Well, here's your chance to prove it.
Daniel: You know what gets me about you and that lame-ass brother of yours? It's you're all sneers and intimidation until someone calls you on it, and then you're all like, "Oh, my daddy, he's gonna get you." Well, you know what? I'm sorry, cupcake. I'm not scared.
Kristen: You should be.
Daniel: Why? I mean, you called me an amateur, and you're right, I am. But, you, see, you've got this professional standing, you got your hired muscle, and you are the one who's tied up in the back of a laundry truck, hmm.
Kristen: You know what?
Kristen: Overconfidence -- it's the first sign of an amateur.
Daniel: And that little smirk is another sign of a sociopathic bitch.
Kristen: [Laughs] Ooh, look at you. You really do have women issues, don't you? What exactly did Jennifer do to you? What'd she do? I'd love to know, hmm?
Daniel: Shut up. This isn't about Jennifer. This is about you paying for what you've done.
Kristen: I did pay. You have no idea what I lost when I lost Brady.
Daniel: I said shut up! You know, we're not gonna talk about Brady. No, no, no, no, no, no. We are gonna talk about Eric. Yes, finally, we're gonna talk about Eric and what you did to him.
Eric: I have to live with that question deep inside of my soul. I should be able to forgive you. I should be able to get rid of that rage, but I can't. I should be able to erase that feeling that I have inside, but I can't. Can you understand? Can you understand why I can't be that priest anymore? Because I'm not that man anymore. If I cannot be that man, then I cannot be that priest.
Paige: [Sniffs] [Exhales]
JJ: Are you making this up? Paige put off Stanford?
Eve: Mm-hmm, for a year. And you really didn't know anything about this?
JJ: Of course I didn't. What did you say?
Eve: Well, I told her she didn't have to do it, that it wasn't necessary, and if you care about her, JJ, you will tell her the same thing. You know, even with all the pressures of the lawsuit, maybe it'd be nice if we could all actually get along, because I, uh, really don't want a reason not to be your friend, JJ. It's late. Gotta run.
JJ: So you say that maybe we can actually get along, but y-you couldn't just leave it at that? You had to end it with a threat?
Eve: It wasn't a threat, JJ, just a statement of fact. I'm not gonna let anyone stand in my daughter's way. Anyone.
Aiden: Uh, the gala is over, father Louis. I will not be suckered into working another event for a very long time. "Dear Aiden, this is a thank-you for all the small miracles you performed in producing such a successful gala. I sincerely hope it wasn't too much of a burden. Father Louis."
Jennifer: You didn't even see me.
Aiden: [Laughing] Oh, hey.
Jennifer: Where were you just then?
Aiden: Nowhere. Nowhere at all.
Anne: You know, you never exactly answered my question. Why were you so happy when you thought that john black might not be waking up?
Anne: What did you think? He would just send Brady down the river, and that would put the kibosh on you and him--
Theresa: Do you not listen at all? Look, I had the annulment papers drawn up, and all we have to do is sign them.
Anne: But what about your settlement?
Theresa: There isn't one.
Anne: Um, you're giving him a freebie? You marry this guy, you keep him out of prison, and now you get bubkes?
Theresa: Look, Anne, I just-- I don't want to talk about it, okay? It's over, and I'm happy about it.
Anne: [Exhales] You don't look like it.
Theresa: Yeah, well, I am, so just drop it.
Brady: Please keep him where he is. Don't move him, 'cause we're not ready to give up.
Kayla: Well, to tell you the truth, I'm glad you two feel that way. I'll, uh--I'll clear it with the administrator.
Brady: [Exhales] Thank you. I gotta go.
Kayla: This is just killing him. And you too, I know, I...
Marlena: Kayla, you know I have complete faith in you and Daniel.
Kayla: But you'd like to look over john's files yourself.
Marlena: Yes, I would.
Kayla: I understand. I would be the same way. That's what doctors do. I'm just glad that you are on his team and you're fighting for him. I'll get the file.
Marlena: It's--it's been a rough couple of years, you know, and, um... when john filed for divorce, I didn't--I didn't fight it. I've had to live with that, and now I'm going to fight.
Daniel: Eric's life, his reason for being was yanked out from under him because of who? You.
Kristen: Please. Eric would be back up at his pulpit right now if it wasn't for Nicole.
Daniel: Nicole--you know what? To the core, you are a despicable human being. She screwed up because she loved him. That's something you would never know about.
Kristen: That's not true. You don't know what you're talking about, no.
Daniel: No, you didn't love Brady?
Kristen: I did love Brady.
Daniel: Yeah, look how that worked out for him.
Kristen: You know what? Shut up, you bastard, just shut up!
Daniel: You are in the back of a freaking truck. And there's no audience, nobody, just you and me. So why don't you just admit it? For once, admit that you screwed up Eric's life--
Kristen: Okay, I admit it, I admit it, I admit it. Are you happy?
Eric: No, Nicole, there's nothing else to say. I have to live with what I've lost... and everything that I can't get rid of. I have to live with the hate and everything else that comes with it.
Aiden: And the reality is that most lawsuits get settled, because trials, they can be both very expensive and unpredictable, and they can take a very, very long time. So I have to ask you, are you up to it?
Jennifer: You know, if this were happening in a vacuum, it would be a no-brainer. But I do have my kids to think about.
Aiden: I understand.
Jennifer: Wait a minute. That's what she wants! Isn't it?
Jennifer: Eve wants me to be so worried about my children, that I will cave and avoid going to trial. No way, I am not gonna let her get away with this, and my children will understand that.
Aiden: Proceeding delicately, her counsel says... I told you that you're gonna need support, and I think Daniel could give it to you.
Jennifer: Don't go there, because it is over, and I will be fine.
Aiden: Okay. Well, one more thing. I just want you to know that you can count on me as your lawyer and as your friend.
Paige: I, uh, I got your text. And I can tell by the look on your face that my mother was here.
JJ: Yeah, um, she wanted me to talk to you about Stanford.
Paige: [Scoffs] So that's wrong on about eight levels.
JJ: Yeah, uh, I'm pretty sure that she didn't want me to say this, but, uh, I love you. And you know that.
Paige: Yeah. I do.
JJ: You know, and after all the bad stuff that I pulled over the past couple years, I don't know how I got lucky enough to drop my wallet right when you were walking by. And I think all the time about what I would have missed out on if I hadn't.
Paige: Me too.
JJ: And all the time, I think about how you're going to California in two weeks, and I think about how much I hate it.
Eve: [Gasps] Hi, Brady.
Brady: Hi, eve.
Eve: Hi, listen, um... how's your dad? I mean, any change?
Brady: Um, no.
Eve: Aw, I'm so sorry to hear that.
Brady: Thank you for that.
Eve: Wow, you look like you've got the weight of the world right on your shoulders. You know, I can be a very good listener.
Brady: Hmm. You know, we barely know each other.
Eve: Well, sometimes talking to a stranger might be the best thing, 'cause there's no prejudice, no agenda, you can just say, well, whatever you want. You know? [Giggles]
Kristen: I know that what I did to Eric was horrible. I've had to live with that.
Daniel: Yeah, so has he.
Kristen: I know. He was kind to me. I feel very guilty about that.
Daniel: Oh, poor baby.
Kristen: You know, it was never about him.
Daniel: Oh, I think he'd disagree with that.
Kristen: No. I'd lost Brady, I'd lost everything, I was... I was humiliated, I was just decimated, and I wanted to lash out at somebody. I didn't want to lash out at Brady.
Daniel: No, so you went after Eric?
Kristen: No, no. [Exhales] After Marlena. Don't you understand? She had taken john from me, and she took Brady from me. Then I realized, if I went after her son, it would be the perfect way to completely crush her.
Daniel: [Exhales] And that's it?
Kristen: Well, except for one thing.
Paige: Are you saying you don't want me to go?
JJ: Well, of course I don't-- I don't want you to go. But you know, I just-- I think that you have to, okay? 'Cause your mom's right. That's where you belong.
Paige: No, my mom doesn't get to make those decisions for me. And I'm sorry, JJ, but neither do you. See, I have already notified Stanford. I'm staying here.
Eve: You know, I was pulling in the parking lot for my appointment just as they called and asked me to reschedule, so I was actually on my way over there, but, um, it's really not urgent yet. So, you know, if you have anything that you want to get off of your chest... I'm still kind of new in town, so selfishly, it would be really nice to actually make a new friend. [Giggles] You look as down as I am. Arrivederci, Roma, huh? I got this at the Vatican, so I'll always remember. Oh, isn't Rome just the best?
Nicole: No. [Exhales] [Laughs] I'm sorry, but I think I recognize you. Maybe from the news? I see you're not wearing a collar, but aren't you a priest?
Eric: I'm not a priest.
Marlena: You know, this all goes back to Kristen. That's why john is here. She set these horrible events in motion.
Kayla: Ah, oh, I, um, I've gotta go. Um, so just, uh, take your time, and leave the files on the desk when you're done, okay?
Marlena: Thanks, Kayla.
Marlena: You set all this in motion, and you couldn't be more pleased. So pleased at all the physical and emotional pain you've caused john and Brady. That bitch. Is it too much to hope that she is burning in hell right now?
Kristen: You have no idea how close I came to getting my revenge on Marlena. [Sighs] At the school opening, I was gonna show everybody the DVD, everybody. And then I knew that that would just completely destroy Marlena. And then Brady gave me hope that we could be together, so I backed off. I didn't want to hurt Eric. And then I didn't have to hurt him, so I did everything I could to just repair the damage that I'd done. I just was trying so hard to make it go away so that Brady and I could be together, and we could just love each other. That's all I wanted.
Daniel: It didn't exactly work out that way, did it?
Kristen: We don't know how it's gonna work out. I mean, it's not over. I still love Brady. And I know that he still loves me.
