Chad: Are you sure this is a good time?
Will: Trust me, when a subject says he's ready to talk, you make sure it's a good time.
Chad: Okay if a grab a beer?
Will: Knock yourself out.
Chad: Thought if I'm gonna be spending the next couple hours talking about myself, can't hurt to loosen up a bit. Looks like you could use this more than me.
Will: No, I'm good.
Chad: Oh, no, you're not. Look, so your mom's bummed you're writing the article about me. What'd you expect?
EJ: Hello, Caroline. Eric.
Caroline: I would like to see my granddaughter.
EJ: Well, I'm--I'm sure I know what this is about. Please, come in, make yourself at home.
Caroline: I'd like to speak to her alone.
Jeremiah: Where is this guy?
Clyde: Keep your shirt on, Jeremiah, we're early. Now tell me something good.
Jeremiah: Well, we're everywhere in town, just like you ordered. And you were right. Money's just pouring in.
Clyde: Hush now, here he comes. Jeremiah, say hello to Miguel. He works for our boss, Mr. DiMera.
Theresa: Going to see your patient, doctor?
Kristen: So what you're admitting to me is that you know...
Daniel: No, I don't know.
Kristen: That Theresa's the one that put john in a coma.
Daniel: I don't know. I suspect, okay, more than ever that, yeah--
Kristen: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, why more than ever? Come on, Daniel. Come on, let's work together, let's--let's bring her down. Let's do it for good, come on.
Daniel: Do you have a problem with that?
Theresa: Well, that all depends on what you're going to say, because I've talked to john at length and we totally understand each other, all right?
Daniel: Well, how nice for you.
Theresa: Yeah, so don't even think about going in there and spreading your lies to him about what you think I did that night. Because I warned you, you do not want to make me angry.
John: It's all coming back to me.
Brady: What do you mean?
John: I remember what happened to me the night I was hurt. I remember it all.
Brady: Uh, dad, are you sure you feel okay to do this right now?
Brady: All right. Then go ahead. We're all listening.
Marlena: You know, um, I think you should go. This is private.
John: No, no, it's okay. I want her to stay.
Will: When you said you wanted to talk, I thought it was about you.
Chad: Yeah, well, I can see you're really upset about your mommy.
Will: No, you're misreading the situation. I'm not at all surprised about how my mom reacted and I'm pretty sure I can predict how EJ's gonna react too.
Chad: You can't be having second thoughts about this. All right, you came to me, remember? Not to mention, the first article you wrote put you on the map.
Will: And it almost cost me my family.
Chad: Family's overrated.
Will: That's crap and you know it, or should I introduce you to my daughter?
Chad: Fine, but the article isn't about your family. It's about moi. And I already promised not to trash Abigail and I won't diss your mom, okay?
Will: Whoa, hang--hang on. What is it you have to say about my mom?
Chad: Oh, for starters, we can talk about how stupid she is for taking my brother back.
EJ: Just make yourself at home.
Sami: Later. Sorry.
EJ: No, it's totally fine. Eric and I will do some bonding. Too soon?
Sami: Hey, grandma, why don't we sit down?
Caroline: Why don't you tell me what is going on?
EJ: Can I get you something?
Eric: I'm fine.
EJ: Good. Well, I'm happy we have this private moment because I would like to take the opportunity to thank you.
Eric: For talking to Sami about you? Letting her know that I support her? I-I didn't do it for you. I did it for her. I'd do just about anything for her. Even this, escorting my grandmother to a house she calls evil.
EJ: Well, look, I think we both know what it is to love your sister, but I would like to thank you for what you did for mine.
John: No, I mean it. I think she should stay. I mean, fact is...I really wouldn't be able to say any of this if it--if it weren't for her. Now, if I'm gonna do this, I really need to be sure.
Marlena: Are you all right?
John: I think I'm fine.
Marlena: Why don't I get a doctor?
John: Yeah, you know, that might not be a bad idea just so there--there aren't any questions down the line.
Brady: [Stammers] What do you mean?
John: Oh, Brady, just trust me on this, okay?
Marlena: I'll get Daniel.
John: No, there's one more thing I need. Just as important. My name is Daniel. I have diabetic nerve pain.
Will: Well, you can imagine how much I enjoy saying this, but my mom really does love EJ. And that's her business. So please, don't call her stupid.
Chad: Right. She's entitled to her own feelings, but it's okay for her to tell me how I should feel about him?
Will: News flash, man, my mom believes that she is right about everything and she knows what's best for everyone. The word bossy has been invoked more than once, so just... roll with it.
Chad: She's your mother, not mine. I don't have to put up with it, let alone roll with it. Just because she's willing to forgive EJ doesn't mean that I have to.
Will: Come on, you can't hate the guy that much.
Chad: No, I hate him more.
Sami: Um, look, I understand why you're here, grandma. You want me to explain why I am back with EJ.
Caroline: Well, you didn't even bother to tell me about it.
Sami: Well, I didn't know Eric was gonna go blabbing to you about it. I mean, I wanted to tell you myself.
Caroline: Please, let us not get sidetracked about Eric. I want to hear what you have to say.
Sami: I know what you mean, grandma. You want me to tell you my reasons for getting back together with EJ because you want to make sure they are the right reasons.
Caroline: Well, you didn't even bother to tell me about it, you know.
Sami: I'm sorry about that, grandma. I love him. And he loves me. And we have both done terrible things to each other. And I know it's gonna be hard. I mean, everybody knows that he cheated on me. And everybody knows that I went after him to punish him with a vengeance. But EJ--EJ understands me and he understands why I did what I did and--and I have promised him that I can let it go, that we are gonna move on from this, and EJ has promised me we are gonna have a fresh start.
Caroline: Samantha, the DiMeras make a lot of promises.
Sami: EJ loves me. He never stopped loving me. And--and he earned my forgiveness. And that is saying a lot, you know, coming from me. I'm not the forgiving type, really. And, grandma, I fought it. I really tried to fight it, but that just takes me back to my first reason. I love him. I love him and...there's nothing I can do about it.
Caroline: Fish gotta swim, right?
Sami: But I promise you, grandma, we are gonna try so hard to make this work. No, that is not what I mean. What I mean is, we are going to make it work this time. I promise we are.
Caroline: Okay, dear, I-- would you remember, we were right here in this room and you were so filled with pain and he was the reason for it? And you know, Samantha jean, I can't just forget that. I can't.
EJ: Look, I need you to know that I'm very aware of the hell that my sister put you through. And for you to give up the opportunity to get back at her so that john could get the life-saving treatment that he needed, well... I don't know that I could be that selfless.
Eric: Really? Old, altruistic EJ DiMera?
EJ: I am truly sorry. And I do hope that I can make you believe that.
Eric: You got Sami to believe it, and that's what really matters to you, isn't it?
Clyde: Thank you for meeting me. My associate, Jeremiah, is up from poplar bluff to help me expand this little operation. Put some boots on the ground, make things work, you know.
Miguel: You mean to help you do that thing that Mr. DiMera expressly told you not to do?
Clyde: Well, first things first. Jeremiah, you have something for him?
Daniel: Well, if you didn't do anything wrong, then you don't have anything to worry about.
Theresa: I'm not going to play these games with you, Dr. Dan. As I've told you, I told everyone what happened that night and john hasn't contradicted anything that I--
Daniel: Of course john's memory has a long way to go, but there's no reason to think that he couldn't recover everything that happened that night.
Marlena: Oh, Daniel. Could you join us, please? John would like to see a doctor.
Theresa: Go ahead.
Daniel: No problem.
Marlena: Theresa? You too. He'd like to see you as well.
Will: You know what I think? All of this talk...is for show. You need me and everyone else to know how hurt you are. And that's fine. But at the end of the day, he's still your brother.
Chad: Mm-hmm. All right, so I'm--I'm new to the whole sibling thing. But so I have this straight, I'm supposed to be cool with what he did just because we're related? Like, OMG, you learn something new every day.
Will: You took a bullet for him. That's what he meant to you.
Chad: "Meant," past tense. So ask me if I'd do it again. Mm-mm. And if there's another bullet out there for EJ, I seriously doubt that there is anyone alive that would step in the way.
EJ: Now I certainly don't expect to win you overnight, but I am telling you the truth. It does matter to me what you think.
Eric: Could you just give it up? What's done is done and all that matters now is you have to find a way to live with it.
EJ: Look, I would not presume to tell you how to feel, but you are here. You are in my house.
Eric: Because my grandmother was coming here whether I drove her or not. And, yes, I will be coming back here to see my sister... and my nephew and my nieces. So let me make this very clear to you. The only thing that matters to me is how you treat my sister. Nothing else counts.
Sami: I know that, grandma. Okay? I know. I was here too and I just-- I know that the only reason he could upset me like that is because I love him so much. And after I found out what happened, that love, it was covered by my anger, you know. I was angry. I was-- I was very seriously angry. And then I just--I had to move on, you know. I realized I needed to let it go, and when I did, I saw that my love for him was still there. It was still underneath everything. And I finally was able to hear EJ, and how he kept telling me that he had never stopped loving me. And that he truly, deeply regretted being unfaithful to me, and that if he could take it back, he would.
Caroline: You--you can't take it back! I know that better than anybody!
Sami: Grandma, grandpa forgave you.
Caroline: I-- I had a talk with Victor. And--
Sami: About me?
Caroline: No, no, but, yes, in a way, it was. He told me... that I should try not to be so judgmental... about what makes other people happy. So... if EJ does love you, you know he's gonna spend the rest of his life making up for it. I pray for you, honey. I pray for both of you.
Caroline: Now, sweetie. Sweetie.
Brady: I'm gonna see what's keeping Marlena.
John: All right. It's all right. I asked her to come.
Marlena: Theresa? John wants to see you.
Theresa: I don't understand. Why?
Brady: I'm sure he'll tell you when you get there. Let's go.
Daniel: It's fancy seeing you here.
John: I think she should be here. It's thanks to her that I'm awake, talking, and... remembering.
John: Yeah, I had a moment a little while ago. I just want to make sure that I'm not taking one step forward, two steps back, you know?
Daniel: Oh, yeah, yeah, that's, uh, that's a good idea.
John: Because when I say what I have to say, I don't want there to be any questions about my reliability.
Daniel: Most certainly.
Theresa: You must see, Brady, that I don't really belong in there. I mean, it's just a family thing, right?
Marlena: John specifically asked to speak to you. He would like to talk about that night. Are you really going to make him wait?
Theresa: No, no, of course not. Brady, you know, he just woke up from a coma so we can't really take anything that he says that seriously.
Brady: I have to. We have to. I mean, this is what we've been waiting to hear for a long time now.
Kristen: I'm so glad Brady found you. Hi, I'm Henry Winkler
Miguel: Is this for Mr. DiMera?
Clyde: The man can see for himself how well we're doing. That's the arrangement, right?
Miguel: The arrangement only covered the territory he approved.
Clyde: Well, that's true. That's very true, but it's hard to imagine that the man has so much money, he don't care about leaving that on the table. Especially when there's so much more to be made. More for everyone. Right?
Jeremiah: What do you think he's gonna do?
Clyde: We'll just have to wait and see, won't we?
EJ: So for this piece, Johnny, Allie, and Sydney chose crayon as their--as their particular medium. You can see the work is signed by the artists.
Caroline: Yes, well, I love it. We're gonna hang it up in the bar.
EJ: You know, it reminds me of a young Edward hopper. Don't you think?
Caroline: I think it's a little more cheery than that. You know?
EJ: You know...
Sami: Tell him, grandma.
EJ: I think you're right. I think you're right. Caroline, there is just one thing that I really wanted to say to you.
Caroline: You know, EJ, I think it's best that we just, you know, stay nice and general and talk about the grandkids and weather, gasoline prices. Thank you, thank you.
Sami: Thank you for bringing her by.
Eric: Yeah, no problem. We'll see you later, okay?
Sami: Grandma, I love you so much.
Caroline: I love you, darling. You know that, you know it. Okay, here we go.
Eric: Okay, here we go.
EJ: So...how did that go?
Sami: Better than I could have hoped for. She wants me to be happy.
EJ: Good. So does your brother. It's really wonderful that we have the support of your family. Unlike Chad, who I could--
Sami: Hey, hey. Um, that reminds me. I didn't want to text you this, but will is writing a new article for Sonix magazine.
EJ: Sonix, my goodness. That's a wonderful magazine.
Sami: Yeah...he's writing it about Chad.
Chad: You could use that as a quote for your article. "I'll never take another bullet for that SOB again."
Will: Uh, maybe, maybe not.
Chad: Does it need to be more pointed?
Will: Chad, print is forever. If someone were interested, if they were to dig this up and see what you had to say about EJ, all of this unfiltered anger, think about it. Who's gonna look worse?
Chad: Oh, me? Really?
Will: He's your brother.
Chad: Man, your mom really has gotten to you, hasn't she? Look, I'm gonna have my say about the guy, and as you pointed out, the article is gonna happen with or without you. And if it happens without you, you can't protect anyone. Anyone. So I want you to think about that, William... and get back to me.
Sami: So, I mean, obviously will was very upset to find out that you and I were getting back together, but I talked to him. I mean, I did. I actually thought we were getting somewhere too, and then...I saw the notes about his article about Chad and I flipped out. I mean, obviously he has no idea that Chad is gonna use that article like to get you and--and--and probably me too. And that was even before I knew that Chad had gone to Stefano. And now he has a forum to go public? Oh, my God.
EJ: Samantha, just, please, calm--
Sami: What's he capable--
EJ: Darling, calm down.
Sami: I can't just calm down. This is Chad we're talking about and my son and he has no frame of reference of what he's done. You would think after the first magazine article and... how that went, that he would have learned his lesson, but no. Do you know he told me to butt out of his life and out of his career and he told me to get lost?
EJ: Well, I know that must be a very strange concept for you, but you are somebody who is always open to the opinions of others.
Sami: This isn't a joke! Stop it! You--he kicked me out of his apartment.
EJ: Tell you what. Would you wait here for a moment? There's something I have to do.
Sami: What? No. EJ, you can't-- where are you going?
EJ: It's a surprise.
EJ: But I'll be right back.
Sami: No, you can't.
EJ: Ah! Zip!
Theresa: You didn't tell me that she was going to be here.
Kristen: Is that a problem?
Theresa: I would think it's a problem for every person in this room. You know she has an agenda. She always does.
John: I asked for her to be here. Honestly, it'll be all right. This won't take long. Doctor...so did I pass muster?
Daniel: You're doing very well, just don't push it.
John: I'll make this fast. But it's important. Very important.
John: I'm sorry I'm doing this to everyone here, but I-- I'm not quite ready yet.
Marlena: Are you all right? You said he was--
John: No, no, no, doc, doc, I'm fine. I just think we need someone from the police department here.
Theresa: The police?
John: Before this goes any further.
Kristen: Well, let me make that call for you.
Sami: You know what? Never mind. I'm the one who's supposed to be able to walk away in a huff. What the hell? You have some nerve showing your face here again.
Will: Well, I figured you'd show up eventually. I take it you talked to mom?
EJ: May I come in?
Will: Yeah, just keep your voice down. Ari's sleeping.
EJ: I don't have any reason to raise my voice. I see you're getting ready for the party.
Will: Wanna help blow up balloons?
EJ: No. I came here to talk to you in private before the children arrive, although I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for doing this for them.
Will: Look, EJ...whatever is going on between us, Sonny and I want you and mom to be here too. Just come knowing that I get to pick what I write about. And this article with Chad, it's no different. If my own mother can't come here and tell me what to do, I'm not sure why you think I'm gonna let you bark orders at me.
EJ: Write the article.
EJ: You heard me. Do it.
Marlena: You can put the phone away. Roman is on the fifth floor interviewing witnesses. Shall I get him for you?
John: Oh, that would be great.
Daniel: Well, I'd like to ask you about your memory. It was pretty spotty the last time we talked. But now, it's all there.
John: Just came rushing back. Obviously, that was after you and I spoke, Theresa. I was surprised to realize just how much you were holding back.
Kristen: Is that true, Theresa?
John: Bet you remember everything now, don't you?
Theresa: I'm not sure I know what you mean.
John: Well, we talked about that night--the night that I was hurt--but you left out the whole week leading up to it. All the fights we had about Brady, how I tried to get you to leave town.
Theresa: Well, you were still recovering. I didn't want to upset you and the doctor said that we should let you remember on your own.
John: And that's exactly what I did. I remembered...on my own. I also remember something else you said. That since that night, you and Brady have become close. That you've been helping him deal with all of this.
Theresa: I-I tried to--
Brady: Dad, dad, what do you mean?
John: What I'm about to say has to do with the three of us. You, me, and Theresa.
Eric: Listen, it was my pleasure, grandma.
Caroline: Whoa, whoa, not so fast, not so fast.
Eric: What's wrong?
Caroline: You tell me. Sami was center stage today, but I want to know what's going on with you, and please... don't hold back.
Chad: So let me guess. You saw EJ and he whined all over the place about what I told Stefano?
Sami: Stop acting like this is a casual conversation. Because of you, your father thinks that EJ betrayed him and set him up.
Chad: Well, because of me, father doesn't think that. He knows that.
Sami: Okay, stop enjoying this. You have no idea what your father is capable of.
Chad: Look, I've been through all of this with EJ, and honestly, that was a lot more fun than this.
Sami: Okay, this isn't a joke. This is your brother we're talking about, my husband.
Chad: Right, the guy who stabbed us both in the back. I meant what I said, Sami. I don't dislike you. I just wish you'd wake up and--
Sami: What? And what? Be bitter like you, just going around trying to get revenge?
Chad: Oh, you mean like you were until you decided that jumping in the sack was more appealing?
Sami: Oh, you--
Chad: Sami, stop trying to put all of this on me. We both know that everything happening to EJ is your fault.
Will: You want me to write the article? What's the catch?
EJ: There is no catch. I don't wish anything else coming between you and your mother. I think things have been hard enough between the two of you as it is. And, William, you're a parent now, so I can imagine you would have some idea of how painful this is for her. You go ahead and write your article. I'll say that you and I spoke and I gave you my blessing.
Will: So you'll just take this hit no matter what Chad says about you, and you're okay with that?
EJ: I may not like what you wrote about me last time, but I certainly can't pretend it wasn't well written. You talk to Chad, you get his take. I'll take my lumps all in one go. I don't think this situation can get any worse for me than it already is. Do you?
Will: I didn't see this coming.
EJ: There is...one proviso.
Will: I knew it. What's the catch?
EJ: I would be grateful if you would avoid dragging Abigail's name through the mud for a second time.
Will: Don't worry. I already made it clear to Chad that Abigail is off limits.
EJ: Good. And your mother?
Will: Abigail's not the only person I miss having in my life. I miss my mother too.
EJ: Well, let me see if I can help you with that. I'M...grateful that we can have this conversation man to man. Look, I know you have mixed feelings about my getting back together with your mother, but I promise you I will prove myself to her and to you and to anybody else who counts. And I will not hurt her ever again.
Brady: Dad, what do you mean?
Roman: Hey, hey.
John: Hey, roman, thanks for coming.
Roman: Are you kidding me? Whew! Good to see you... alive and kicking.
John: So, roman, I know there was a lengthy investigation the night I was hit with that fireplace poker.
Roman: Yeah, we got all the information we could.
John: But you weren't able to find out what I knew.
Roman: No, you're right about that.
John: But you have what Brady said and Theresa.
Roman: Absolutely. It's all on this.
John: You think you can bring it up for us right now? It's important.
Roman: Sure. Won't take a minute.
Kristen: Don't you just love technology?
Eric: Grandma, listen, I hate to break it to you, but there's really nothing exciting to tell. I'm just focusing on my photography and being there for the family, that's it.
Caroline: So Nicole is just in the rearview mirror and so is the church?
Eric: Grandma, please.
Caroline: Now, now, now. All work and no play...
Eric: We really gonna have this conversation? There's no one and it's just-- it's far too soon.
Caroline: Well, please don't say never, you know? I just--I want you to be happy.
Eric: I think that's a long way down the road before I can trust someone again. I trusted Nicole and look how that turned out.
Caroline: Well, surprise. Nicole turned out to be, you know, Nicole. But that doesn't mean that the right person isn't out there somewhere, waiting.
Sami: So you tattle to your daddy and you're saying it's my fault?
Chad: Oh, it's completely your fault. See, you tipped the first domino, Sami. You put it all in motion. You went after EJ, which in my book was completely justified. But you went after him with such ferocity that you literally put the man in a corner. See, he had to go big to get you back. He had to pull out all of the stops. So what did he do? He betrayed his own father. All for your sake, which I bet makes your heart go all a-flutter. But if father's angry now, if he's licking his chops to get back at EJ, then it is all on you. Don't shoot the messenger, Sami. Just take a good, hard look in the mirror.
Sami: I'm not gonna tell EJ we had this conversation.
Chad: I can see why.
Sami: No, no, you have no idea why because you are messing with a very dangerous man. Brother or no, you threaten EJ's kids or his wife and he will kill you. In your family, that's not hyperbole.
Chad: Please, I didn't threaten you or your kids.
Sami: You may not have intended it, but you have put us at risk. You're arrogant. I like that. But, Chad, you are so out of your league.
Chad: Man, this house-- I'm gonna get some air.
Sami: You do that.
[Cell phone rings]
EJ: What is it?
Miguel: I thought you should know, sir, Clyde Weston has begun selling his product all over town. Outside of the area you specified.
EJ: Damn it. Are you sure?
Miguel: Very sure. Give me an order, Mr. DiMera. I'll do anything you ask.
Roman: Mr. Black testified that he had no memory of the fight with his father. The last thing he remembered was being with Ms. Donovan on the way back from Las Vegas.
John: And Theresa's statement?
Roman: When asked about the events of that evening, Ms. Donovan responded, "I'm not sure. It all happened so fast. John came over to talk to Brady and me. I thought I should leave them alone, but then I heard john attacking Brady. And Brady, oh, my God, he-- Brady, he grabbed the poker. He was just trying to defend himself and he hit john across the head."
Marlena: John? Is that the way you remember it?
