Ben: [Sighs] Damn it. Abigail, what the hell? You know that door is--
Abigail: Locked, yes, I know. I have a few things to say, Ben. So consider yourself a captive audience.
Hope: I don't know how they expect you to carry all this. It must weigh 30 pounds.
Ciara: Well, I won't be needing this. So uncool.
Hope: Oh, honey.
Ciara: Come on, mom. I don't want to be late for my first day. I told chase I'd see him before class, and you can say hi to his dad too.
Sami: The judge ruled against Stefano. He's still under indictment.
EJ: Oh, well, that's a lucky break for you.
Sami: I know what you did.
EJ: What I did? I'm sorry I have no idea what you're talking about.
Sami: Yes, you do. You worked a miracle to keep Stefano out of Salem to protect me.
JJ: So why'd you want to come all the way back here before calc?
Paige: I thought we could enjoy a little alone time. Got a problem with that?
JJ: No, I don't.
JJ: I don't.
Jennifer: Surprise! Yeah! Surprise! Come on, I know you love it. Whoo! Look! Welcome, class of 2018. Whoo! What do you think? Beautiful, huh?
Jennifer: And you have to thank Paige because I could not have done this without her help.
Jill: Can you believe the last guy thought he was getting a freebie?
Dana: My last guy was three days ago. It's been so dead around here.
Jill: There has got to be a better way to make some dead presidents around here.
Jennifer: Go, Salem U! Look at this. One for each of you, honey. I have the receipt in case it doesn't fit. Here you go, honey.
Paige: Aw, you shouldn't have done that.
Jennifer: Are you kidding me? I am a very proud Salem u alum. And I will embarrass you one day by wearing my matching sweatshirt with y'all.
Paige: [Laughs] Thank you so much.
Jennifer: You're welcome.
JJ: Yeah, thanks, Mom.
Jennifer: So tell me, how was your first day of classes?
JJ: It was good. It was good.
Jennifer: Yeah? Good. No doubts about deferring Stanford?
Paige: No. Of course, my mom already got me a Stanford sweatshirt, but she left me a really nice note this morning to wish me luck, so...
JJ: A note?
Paige: Yeah, she was gone when I got up. I guess she had something important to do.
Eve: Hey. Not so fast. My budget and I are good. But it wasn't always that way.
Paige: Oh, excuse me.
Jennifer: Yeah, sure, honey.
Paige: Hey, Marybeth. How was English lit? Yeah, I told you he'd be in your section.
Jennifer: So tell me. Tell me about your classes. You like 'em?
JJ: Uh, well, aside from the professor reading the syllabus verbatim, I think it's going to be a lot more interesting than high school.
Jennifer: That's great. I mean, you know it's going to be a lot harder than high school. But, I mean, don't worry. You'll still have plenty of time to socialize and--not too much time.
JJ: Yes, mother.
JJ: Speaking of socializing, are--are you and Daniel--
Jennifer: Just going to go for coffee later.
JJ: Cool. That's cool.
Jennifer: Yeah, I mean, it's just a coffee.
JJ: All right.
Jennifer: But I take it you are not a fan of this Marybeth?
JJ: Nah, she's a stuck-up bitch.
JJ: I'm sorry, that was inappropriate. She's just--she's not a friend. You know, she's always trying to get Paige to break up with me.
Jennifer: Well, clearly, Paige has already made up her mind. Do you think she's getting pressure from eve?
JJ: Um, sure, I mean, I'm really not worried about her anymore.
Jennifer: Okay, why not?
JJ: Well, you know that she came by the house yesterday, right? To pick up her royalty check?
Jennifer: No, I did not know that. What did she say?
JJ: Well, it actually wasn't bad. You know, well, she started out hostile, but then she saw my guitar, and then we kind of just got caught up in talking music. And then--you're not going to believe this--but we started playing a song together.
JJ: Yeah, she really wants to get back into singing. And when she left, I just felt like she-- she wasn't judging me anymore, you know, not as much, maybe.
JJ: I didn't find the check, though, so I thought she was going to call you. But we can just give the check to Paige. Why not?
Jennifer: Because I have to be the one to do it, for your sake.
JJ: For my sake?
Jennifer: Yes, for yours and Paige's.
Eve: Thinking about giving that wallet back?
Jill: [Laughs] What wallet?
Eve: Oh, the one that I videoed of you taking. Don't even think about leaving, 'cause I'm sure this handsome bartender here would love to chase you down while I call 911.
Jill: Who the hell are you anyway? [Clears throat] Excuse me, um... is this yours? I found it on the floor.
Oh, gosh. Thank you so much. Wait. I should give you some kind of reward.
Jill: No, no, really, that's not necessary. Just happy that I could help.
Jill: Happy now?
Jill: What else do you want?
Eve: You'll see. But you know what? This is not the place to talk, so come on.
Hope: Today's a half day, remember, honey. If we leave now, we'll be early. I'm so glad you're excited about your first day. Fourth grade's a big year, you know.
Ciara: Yeah, we get to learn long division. Yippee.
Hope: Oh, come on. What about your field trip to Chicago?
Ciara: The only thing I'm excited about is the play. We're doing Cinderella, and I'm going to try out for one of the leads.
Hope: Aha, so that is why you've had your nose in your book of fairy tales all week. You know, I got an email about tryouts. I had no idea you were interested, honey.
Ciara: Mom, I was born to act.
Hope: Yes, you certainly do have the flair for dramatics.
Ciara: Yeah, I know. You're going to come, right? To see me in my big debut?
Hope: Honey, of course I am. Why would you even ask such a silly question?
Ciara: Because you say Cinderella's your least favorite fairy tale, which I don't get because--
Hope: Because I'll tell you why. It's the message. You know, I just don't think or actually believe that girls need to wait around or should wait around for a prince charming to make their lives complete.
Ciara: Mom, it's just a story. And who wants to be boring Cinderella anyway? I want to be one of the mean sisters.
Hope: [Gasps] Gasp. [Chuckles]
Ben: Abigail, what's the point of this? We already talked.
Abigail: No. No, we haven't, Ben. You talked, and I listened. And maybe you think that we were finished, but we weren't.
Ben: Fine. Then how about you start by telling me how EJ DiMera broke your heart?
EJ: I don't know what it is that's keeping my father from coming home, but it's certainly not my doing.
Sami: Wh-whatever it is? Are you kidding? He was planning to come home. He had a deal with the state. He wasn't going to serve any jail time. He would've been back in Salem today.
EJ: Right, that's what I heard.
Sami: And then Rafe miraculously comes up with this new evidence that allows the D.A. To file new charges.
EJ: Really? Sounds like Rafe deserves some sort of promotion for a job well done.
Sami: Uh-huh, yeah, yeah. 'Cause Rafe is a good cop, he's a smart guy, but he's not an expert in prosecuting tax evasion.
EJ: Whoa, wait a second. There was the john black case he dealt with.
Sami: Oh, stop. Stop it. I know what you did. EJ, you're the only one who could've. And you, you are the one who stopped Stefano from coming back to Salem, and you did it for me. I mean, I can't even begin to--
EJ: Samantha. If my father thought for one moment that I betrayed him, you know what he would do to me and to those people I love. So let me make this very clear. I did not do this. Do you understand me?
Abigail: I thought you might want to hear about me and EJ, but that's not why I came here, Ben. I came here to talk to you about us.
Ben: You think we're alone here, Abigail? 'Cause we're not. He's always with us, 'cause he's always on your mind.
Ben: You're still hung up on him.
Abigail: No, no, I'm not. I'm not hung up on EJ.
Ben: Okay, then when we were kissing right over there and you pushed me away, you weren't thinking about him?
Abigail: I told you that I was but not for the reasons that you think.
Sami: Um... yeah, no, I mean, of course it was just Kate talking crazy. You know, Kate and I were just guessing who it could be, and, you know, we just thought it was you.
EJ: Well, then, you will just have to convince her otherwise.
Sami: Yeah, I know, I-- you know, nasty rumors, you don't want them spread about you, especially when they're not true.
EJ: Quite. Samantha.
Sami: Just... he is going to come back, isn't he? Now, later, sometime he's going to come back. And he is going to come after Kate and me with a vengeance. And you've always known it. Haven't you?
Hope: Okay, all right, sweetheart, so you have a great day, and I will see you right after school. Mwah. Okay?
Ciara: You're leaving?
Hope: Well, sweetie, now that you're in fourth grade, I thought maybe walking in holding your mom's hand, it might be, you know, a little uncool.
Ciara: It is, but...
Ciara: I'm not going to go in until chase gets here and--
Hope: Oh, sweetie, I'm sure you'll see him on the inside.
Ciara: Hey, there he is.
JJ: It's not like I can avoid seeing Paige's mom.
Jennifer: No, I know that.
JJ: Well, then why can't I give her the check?
Jennifer: Because, honey, we can't use you as our go-between. The lawsuit's over. Everything that eve and I were fighting about, it's settled.
JJ: Well, so you can avoid seeing her.
Jennifer: No, we can't, because you're a couple. And we need to figure out how to be civil with each other. I mean, we're the grown-ups, right? [Laughs]
JJ: You know what, come here. Thank you, mom. I'm gonna hug you.
JJ: You're the best.
Jennifer: I don't know about that, but--
JJ: Thank you.
Jennifer: You're welcome. It's not going to be easy.
Paige: Sorry to interrupt.
Jennifer: Oh, no.
JJ: Oh, you didn't interrupt anything. I was just thanking my mom for everything. But you know what? We gotta get going.
Jennifer: Oh, okay.
JJ: We're meeting a couple of people at the Horton town square, and we got to get a study group together.
Jennifer: Good for you. That's excellent.
Paige: Thanks again for the sweatshirt.
Jennifer: Are you kidding me? I'm so happy for you guys. This is wonderful. Have a great rest of your day.
JJ: We will.
Jennifer: Okay, bye-bye.
Jennifer: [Sighs] Okay, eve. Get you your money. Get you your money and get this over with.
Eve: For you.
Jill: [Laughs] 50 bucks? Listen, lady. I am usually down for whatever, but, I mean, I'm not--
Eve: I'm not here to buy your services. Not exactly what you think, anyway.
Jill: What does that mean?
Eve: You're a working girl, right? I know how tough it can be. I was watching you today. I saw the jerk who tried to stiff you.
Jill: You've been following me?
Eve: Mm-hmm. I wanted to make sure you were the right girl for this.
Jill: For what?
Eve: Well, the reason I invited you here today is because I believe that I can help you. This is a pip.
Paige: Wish we had more classes together.
JJ: Yeah, it's too bad you're so smart.
Hey, JJ. Looks like you've recovered from our thrilling intro to world culture.
JJ: Yeah, till next time anyway, yeah.
See you then.
JJ: All right.
Paige: Who was that?
JJ: Uh, no clue. No, we have a class together. I just don't know her name.
Paige: But she knows yours.
JJ: Well, yeah, I'm memorable that way. Actually, I just--I like that not a whole lot of people know my name. You know, in high school they would judge me before they would even meet me, so... but now we go to school with, like, 10,000 kids, so...
Paige: It's a fresh start. I get it.
JJ: Yeah, and hey, look. I'm making friends left and right.
Paige: You mean girl friends.
JJ: You can't be jealous.
Paige: What? No. Jealous, of course not, no. That'd be so unlike me. Out of character. I don't do jealous.
JJ: Oh, good. Well, then, maybe I should get her name.
Paige: Whose name?
JJ: That girl that just talked to me--you know, she seemed really nice.
Eve: I am like you, Jill. I was you.
Eve: Yeah, I used to do what you do. And I know how hard you work for your money. I also know what it does to your heart, your mind, and your soul. And you'd do about anything to get out of it, wouldn't you? So why don't you think about it? Now, where would you be if money could get you there? I mean, any place in the whole world.
Eve: Kentucky, wow. You have family there?
Jill: A cousin. I mean, she works on a horse farm. She said she could get me a job, but, you know--
Eve: But what? What if I told you I could get you there?
Jill: You would do that for me? Why?
[Knocking on door]
Jennifer: Eve, it's me, Jennifer. I know you're in there. Open up.
Aiden: Hello, hope.
Ciara: Are you going to try out for the play?
Chase: What play?
Ciara: Cinderella, duh. I'm going to try out to be one of the mean stepsisters.
Chase: I definitely think you'll get the part.
Ciara: Thank you.
[School bell rings]
Hope: Uh, Ciara, hey. Come here, sweetheart. Have a great day today. I'll see you right after. My grown-up girl, I can't believe--fourth grade, huh?
[School bell rings]
Hope: Oh, make yourself proud, okay?
Aiden: Be good. Learn a lot. Okay?
Hope: Have a good day. Uh, wow, I have to go. I'll talk to you later.
Aiden: Uh, yeah. Look, hope, I need to say something to you.
Hope: No, you don't. You don't have to say anything.
Aiden: I was completely and totally out of line last night.
Ben: You were kissing me, and you were thinking about EJ. That's all I need to know. And I really don't want to talk about it anymore, if it's all the same to you.
Abigail: No, Ben.
Ben: Now I know what was going on in your life when you met me. I was your rebound guy. I was your safe guy. He was exciting and dangerous. Oh, and he was famous too.
Abigail: I don't care about that.
Ben: And now you're famous too.
Abigail: That what your problem is, really? You were embarrassed to be around me?
Ben: No, that is not my problem. In fact, I knew what everybody thought, but I was sure that they were wrong, that you wanted to be with me, that what we had would be so much better than what you ever thought you had with him.
Abigail: Yes, yes. That's exactly right, it was. And that is the whole reason I pushed you away.
EJ: Stefano cannot do anything to hurt you right now.
Sami: Right now. God, I was so cocky. I mean, I was just so frickin' arrogant. Came up with that plan, and we just-- man, we did it, didn't we? Too well. How did we not realize it was going to end like this? And, you know, the irony is that I never even cared about Stefano.
EJ: It was about me. And how much I hurt you. So whatever happens... I take full responsibility for it, Samantha. For all of it.
Abigail: Yesterday we were standing right here. You remember, right? What it was like and where things were headed?
Ben: All you had to say was "slow down" if you didn't want to--
Abigail: No, I did want to. I wanted to so badly. But then, for this split second, I opened up my eyes, and I saw these shelves, and...
Abigail: I was reminded of-- all these memories came flooding back.
Ben: Memories of EJ?
Abigail: I didn't know it then. I didn't realize it until later, but what happened was that I didn't want that perfect moment, our moment, to be ruined by what happened with EJ. Because everything with you, Ben, everything that we have is so right. And everything with EJ was-- and that's when I realized, in that moment... I didn't deserve you.
Hope: I wasn't going to bring up what happened. I wasn't even sure if, uh, you remembered.
Aiden: I wasn't drunk, hope. I was tipsy, enough to be completely inappropriate. And I am sorry, very sorry.
Hope: Apology accepted. God knows we've all been there.
Aiden: Well, I remember a time I judged your nephew for overindulging, and here I am doing the exact same thing.
Hope: Aiden, it's okay.
Aiden: But that's not all it was. I admitted to you that I had feelings for you. I promised I wouldn't act on them, and then-- I just want to make sure that--
Hope: That we're okay. We're fine. Really, we are. We're okay. We've said everything there is to say about it, okay?
Aiden: Have we?
JJ: The truth is that I'm not interested in getting to know any other girl's name but yours, all right?
Marybeth: Hey, Paige.
Marybeth: How was your first day of class?
JJ: Yeah, mine too, not that you asked, but--
Rory: JJ, my man.
Rory: You're coming tonight, right?
JJ: Uh, what are you--
Rory: To the big off-campus party, dude. Everyone who's anyone's going to be there, even me. So you're coming, right?
Paige: No way.
Jennifer: Were you watching TV? I thought I heard some voices.
Eve: Oh, I was watching a very fascinating movie about a woman who just wanted what she was entitled to and how this other woman went to great lengths to keep it from her.
Jennifer: If you are talking about your check, I have it right here.
Eve: Let's just hope the publisher doesn't make the same mistake twice. Now if you'll excuse me, I want to get back to my fabulous movie.
Jennifer: Okay. Take care, eve--
Eve: Coast is clear.
Jill: Why did I have to hide, exactly?
Eve: That horrible, smug witch just now is one of the reasons you're here.
Jill: I don't get it. You said that you wanted to help me get out. You ever heard of the statement "God helps those who help themselves"?
Eve: If you want to get out of this life--and I know you do--it has to come from you. I want to help. I really, really want to help. And I can certainly make things a hell of a lot easier for you, but I am not running a charity here.
Jill: No one said that you were.
Eve: So like I said, you just have to do a little something for me in return. What do you want from me?
Eve: Well, to tell you the truth, I'm really ashamed of what I'm about to ask you to do.
Jill: [Laughs] Well, I'm not sure I want to hear this.
Eve: You just do it, and you will have 2 grand to get you to Kentucky. You say no, and, well, that's your prerogative, but just know that I won't hesitate to use my leverage if I have to. And I have to say jail is probably not a step up from where you are now, right?
Jill: Okay. I'm in. Just tell me what I have to do.
JJ: Hey, it's supposed to be the best party of the year. Nothing over the top. If anything happens, we'll leave. I just thought that we could have some fun together. Don't you want that?
Aiden: I mean, if there's anything else to say about what happened... or what anyone was thinking when it happened, maybe now is the time to just-- to get it out there, quickly. And honestly. Because we're both friends, right? Neither one of us want to do anything to ruin that.
Hope: Right. Aiden, as I said, I mean, we've exhausted this subject, right? I know I have.
Aiden: Okay. Okay, well, uh... I am truly, truly sorry. We'll leave it at that.
Hope: Okay, yeah. Let's leave it at that.
Aiden: Have a good day, hope.
Hope: Oh, crud. Mrs. Clark, I am so sorry to interrupt your class. This is hope Brady, Ciara's mom. I just found her book in my purse. Could I possibly drop-- oh, you'll send her out? Perfect. I'll be waiting right here on the church steps. Okay, thank you. Bye. Sorry again.
Ben: You don't think you deserve me? Abigail, that's crazy. If anything, it's the other way around.
Abigail: No. I know who I've been, and I know who you are.
Ben: Don't talk like that. Abigail, you don't know what it's meant to me just to have you believe in me and want to be with me.
Abigail: I still do, Ben. But if it's not something you want, then that's--
Tad: Sorry, carry on. [Whispers] I thought you said an hour.
Ben: You were in on this?
Tad: Yeah, you're not going to slug me, are you?
Ben: [Laughs] No, I'm going to say thank you. But if you would excuse us, I wasn't finished.
Sami: EJ, I can't let you take the blame. I mean, not all of it. I know I went too far. I was just trying to hurt you the way that you had hurt me, which isn't possible.
Sami: So I just kept trying. You know, twisting the knife, trying to find other ways to--
EJ: I understand why it happened. 'Cause you love me so much. And I betrayed that love.
Sami: I don't know if I can properly describe for you what it felt like to see those pictures of you with her. I know I said I hated you, but, I mean, honestly, that was a lie.
EJ: A lie?
Sami: I just couldn't admit how empty it made me, how sick I felt. EJ, it made me feel like a piece of my soul had been ripped out of my body and I would never get it back. You read the labels on the foods you eat -
Hope: Oh. [Winces] Oh. [Sighs]
Aiden: Are you looking for this?
Ciara: Mom. Mom, hello?
Hope: Oh, honey.
Ciara: My book.
Hope: Oh, your book. Here you go. Sorry.
Hope: Have a good day. I love you.
Ciara: Love you too.
Hope: Bye, sweetheart. [Sighs] What am I thinking?
Tad: I'll just be going.
Abigail: Wait, no. Not yet. You're next. Come here.
Abigail: Thank you.
Tad: Lucky you guys worked it out, 'cause I'm clearly irresistible.
Abigail: Yes, you are.
Tad: Glad I could help. Um, but neither one of you are going to like what I have to say now.
Abigail: Why? What?
Tad: I can only cover at the club for so long. We have a big crowd coming in this afternoon.
Ben: And I need to get back to my job, right?
Ben: Come on, man. Thank you. I appreciate it, and I will see you there soon.
Tad: Here you go.
Abigail: Thanks. [Chuckles]
Ben: So any chance you'll be free when I finish my shift?
Abigail: You know, I will have to check my calendar.
Ben: Well, it would be a shame if you weren't available for, um... whatever fabulous idea I come up with for us to do.
Abigail: You know, I think I can clear my schedule.
EJ: Samantha. What kind of man am I, to hurt a woman who I love so much?
Sami: Human. I guess I just got used to thinking of you as... something more. I remember one time you-- you accused me of blinking 'cause life wasn't working out exactly the way I wanted it to. And you were right. But last time when we got back together, I did push you away-- I--I know that I did, and I know that I hurt you--
EJ: No, Samantha, please. Listen to me. As much as I want your forgiveness, I will not allow you to blame yourself. There is no excuse for what I did.
Sami: And I'm not making excuses for you. But I--I know that there is more to the story. What you did--what you didn't do today, it reminded me that you are also the man who was willing to sacrifice everything for me and that you and I are not people who--who see the world in black and white.
EJ: Samantha, I would spend the rest of my life trying to make up for the hurt that I caused you if I--if I just thought that I could.
Paige: I do want to have fun, JJ.
JJ: Well, then, what's the problem?
Paige: Nothing. Okay, let's do it, let's go.
JJ: You're sure?
Paige: Yeah, Marybeth will understand, right?
JJ: Yeah, yeah, totally. I mean, everyone's talking about the party, kicking off the school year right.
JJ: You know, it's just going to be one of those nights where it feels like anything could happen.
Eve: I took that last night.
Jill: [Laughs] Who's this?
Eve: The reason you're here. He is what this is all about.
