Jordan: Did you forget something?
Jordan: We have said everything there is to say.
Rafe: Not nearly.
Jordan: Rafe, I'm done. We are done, so--
Rafe: This isn't about us. It's Clyde.
Clyde: Wow, you're early, huh?
Jeremiah: You sounded upset.
Clyde: We're short.
Jeremiah: Excuse me?
Clyde: Of cash. We're coming up short. You've been sleeping on the job, haven't you?
Clyde: Well, it's either that, or you're stealing from me.
Abigail: [Gasps] No! Oh, my God, what? Aw...
Kate: Ah, the official summons, complete with chauffeur. Don't you think a simple text would have done?
Victor: Where's the poetry in that? Drink?
Kate: Where's your wife?
Victor: A meeting.
Kate: Ah, I see. So you poetically summon me, try to ply me with alcohol, and your sainted wife is at a meeting?
Victor: Forget about the drink. Clearly, your fevered imagination still only runs in one direction.
Kate: [Sighs] What do you want?
Victor: You and I have to straighten out your co-CEO.
Adrienne: Chad? Chad, oh, my gosh!
Chad: Adrienne. It's, uh--it's great to see you.
Adrienne: Well, same here. I'm sorry we haven't had a chance to talk since you've been back.
Chad: Yeah, me too.
Adrienne: Well, anyway, I'm glad you're home.
Adrienne: And I know Sonny is so happy to have his best friend home again.
Sonny: I've been thinking about what you said.
Paul: I meant every word.
Sonny: Maybe we could talk?
Paul: Sure, sure we could. You, uh... do you want to come over here... to the hotel? Or I could meet you somewhere. You tell me.
Adrienne: Chad, what brought you back to Salem?
Chad: Well, I... I wanted to be closer to the people I cared about.
Adrienne: Oh... did you hear about Abigail before you got back?
Chad: Yeah, I knew about her and EJ. The new guy was a surprise. But I-I'm really happy that she's moved on with her life.
Adrienne: You mean that.
Chad: I do. Ben seems like a really great guy.
Adrienne: Well, you've met someone too, though, haven't you?
Chad: I have. Jordan Ridgeway.
Jordan: There is nothing to say about Clyde either.
Rafe: Look, I know I'm the reason that he's back here.
Jordan: No, actually, that was your buddy Kate butting in where she had no business.
Rafe: Well, because of me.
Jordan: What do you want me to say, Rafe? It doesn't matter anymore. It's over, okay? And I've already told you that Clyde will not ruin my life again--I won't let him.
Rafe: Right. So how about you help me out with that?
Jordan: Help you out with what?
Rafe: Well... do you remember anything from when you were still back home about Clyde's business or the people he hung out with?
Jordan: Why do you want to know?
Rafe: Well, you say you won't let Clyde ruin your life again. I want to make that easier for you. I want to get him out of your life... for good.
Jeremiah: I'm not stupid, Clyde. I'd never steal from you.
Clyde: Then why isn't there more money coming in, damn it? We have had every territory in this town for months now, more than enough product.
Jeremiah: Look, I was laying low because that's what I thought you wanted.
Clyde: Laying low, my ass. You've been lazy and sloppy. You get any sloppier, you end up like EJ DiMera.
Abigail: Okay, I have something else for you too.
Ben: Oh, yeah?
Abigail: Yes, it's something important that we can both share.
Ben: Am I gonna like it?
Abigail: I think so. Close your eyes. Ta-da!
Ben: That's for me?
Abigail: Yes, yeah, it's your first Christmas tree in your new home.
Ben: It's my first tree, period.
Abigail: What? No.
Ben: Yeah, on my own, on my own. Abigail, it's beautiful.
Abigail: Can we decorate it together?
Ben: Yeah. Let's do it.
Abigail: Okay! [Giggles]
Kate: Okay. I am not going to discuss Chad or anything else DiMera enterprises either.
Victor: Oh, please, Kate. You really think I need you to tell me about DiMera business?
Kate: I'll have you know I'm only days away from finding out who was the leak on the board.
Victor: Oh, I'm sure you are.
Kate: [Scoffs] Come on, that's the only way that you could ever have found out about Chad being appointed co-CEO.
Victor: Well, you keep digging--I'm sure you'll come up with something. In the meantime, this doesn't have anything to do with business. It's a family matter... yours and mine... and what that whelp is doing to will and Sonny.
Paul: Sonny... you there? If you want, you could come over here.
Paul: Sonny? Making the holidays special,
Kate: Okay. Chad and Sonny are best friends. Chad is close to will. Chad is crazy about Arianna.
Victor: Of course he is. Vintage DiMera-- screw over the people closest to you.
Kate: [Stammers, sighs] What are you talking about?
Victor: Who do you think you're in business with, Kate-- some young boy you can lead around by the nose? Maybe that was Chad before he spent a year with his old man.
Kate: Ah, okay, there it is. So you think Stefano changed him?
Victor: Well, maybe it was always in there waiting to emerge. Who knows? What I do know is that the boy that came back to Salem is a little shark.
Kate: Okay, well, I think you're overstating.
Victor: Nope. He's just as ruthless as EJ and Kristen ever were.
Kate: Where is this coming from? Chad has been nothing but supportive of will and Sonny.
Victor: Have you seen the paperwork on that?
Kate: What I do know is that Chad moved aside so Sonny would have a bigger share of the profits of their club. And at the new club, he's backed it 100%.
Victor: Not exactly. Chad set a trap for Sonny. And Sonny stepped into it.
Sonny: I got to go.
Sonny: You're here.
Will: Straight off the plane.
Sonny: Hi, sweetheart!
Will: She could not wait to see you.
Sonny: I have missed you so much. She got so big.
Will: I know. And you were so well-behaved on the plane, weren't you, my little angel?
Sonny: What are you doing here--I mean, like-- how did you get away?
Will: I just did.
Sonny: Why didn't you call me?
Will: I wanted to surprise you. See that? Look at--look at daddy Sonny. That's his surprise face. She--she's trying to copy you. She does that now. You really do look surprised.
Chad: It is a small world, isn't it?
Adrienne: Yes, I mean, you're dating Ben's sister.
Chad: Yeah, I didn't know that she was Ben's sister when we met.
Adrienne: Well, but Abigail's very good friends with Jordan so that must be kind of awkward.
Chad: It's fine. I mean, we're all adults. Hey, have you seen the new club on the south side? Sonny is doing an absolutely amazing job.
Adrienne: He's very excited about it.
Chad: That's--that's great. Yeah, I've been so swamped at the new job, I've had absolutely no time to help. And he's--yeah, he's really stepped up and handled it.
Adrienne: Well, he has a real feel for the business, I'll tell ya.
Chad: Now, see, that's a proud mom. Listen, get him to give you a tour of the site.
Adrienne: I will. I will. I have to get going, so... take care, Chad.
Chad: Absolutely, it's nice to see you.
Adrienne: It's nice to see you too.
Rafe: For years, you live like a fugitive to try and stay away from Clyde, so don't try and tell me you just don't get along. There is a crime here somewhere, and one way or another I'm going to find out what it is.
Jordan: No, Rafe, if you go digging around in Clyde's past--
Rafe: Don't worry. He doesn't know, and he won't. Don't be scared. I'll get him, Jordan. And if there's nothing you can tell me...
Jordan: There isn't.
Rafe: Okay. Then I'll handle it.
Rafe: Listen... I owe you this, all right? It's the least I can do.
Jordan: You don't owe me anything.
Rafe: So I think that Clyde's big trouble for you. And you're shining me just like my sister did, and I won't have that on my head again.
Jordan: I am not like Gabi.
Rafe: Yeah, and you won't be, because I'm not going to let you convince me that everything is okay. I'm not going to stand by, again, and let something bad happen to someone that I care about.
Jordan: Oh, my God, Rafe, what are you going to do?
Rafe: I'm going to find out exactly who Clyde Weston is, and no one is going to stop me, not even you.
Jordan: Rafe, no!
Jeremiah: I'm going to need a couple of guys, but I'll hire local.
Clyde: You got the names?
Jeremiah: I do.
Clyde: Then get it done... quietly.
Jeremiah: I won't let you down.
Clyde: No, you won't.
Abigail: So you just do a gumdrop and then some popcorn. Simple.
Ben: Got it.
Abigail: Okay. Here... Ben, Ben, have you never done this before? Didn't you ever decorate a tree with Jordan when you guys were little?
Ben: Clyde didn't do holidays.
Ben: Well, one year, he, uh, came home drunk with this aluminum tree. He took it off the hood of a jeep from spratlin's used-car lot, yeah. He cut the hell out of his fingers.
Abigail: Oh, God...
Ben: You can laugh, it was kind of funny.
Abigail: Well, I'm glad you think it's funny.
Ben: Yeah, well, it was a lot easier when my mom was alive.
Abigail: Do you remember any Christmases with her?
Ben: Her last one. She was all ticked off at Clyde for something. [Chuckles] So she went and chopped the tree down on her own... in our own back field.
Abigail: Oh, my God.
Ben: Clyde came home and Jordan and my mom and I were just hanging kitchen utensils on it, dying laughing. Clyde even joined in on it. He was bending all these forks and spoons into these different shapes, it was great.
Abigail: Oh, thank God.
Ben: Until dinnertime, ugh. I was the only six-year-old kid I knew that had to learn how to use chopsticks on Christmas eve.
Abigail: Aww. Well, I'm glad you had some fun times.
Ben: Yeah. How about you?
Abigail: Oh, God, decorating the Horton tree is an event.
Ben: In a good way?
Abigail: Yeah, in a great way. Yeah, my best memories are with my family at Christmastime.
Kate: So how'd you get your hands on this?
Victor: Don't change the subject. I assume you can see.
Kate: Yes, I can see. Why didn't Sonny read the fine print?
Victor: Perhaps because he thought he was dealing with a loyal friend.
Kate: Yeah, well, still, with Sonny's last name...
Victor: Believe me, I already chewed him out for that. And I hired him a good lawyer to go over every document he signed with boy DiMera. See what else is coming down the pike for him.
Kate: Well, maybe Chad didn't realize the effects of that clause.
Victor: Oh, because that's the level of incompetence that gets you to the head of DiMera enterprises.
Kate: Okay, okay, what do you want from me?
Victor: I want you to be honest with yourself. It's good for the soul. And in the long run, it might save your hide. What do you think this move means?
Kate: [Sighs] I think it looks familiar. Even with family, Stefano wants to be in control.
Victor: Which is exactly what Chad is going to be once Sonny's business goes down the tube.
Kate: Why are you so sure it's going to fail?
Victor: I ran the numbers.
Kate: Well, even if Sonny has made a bad choice, I really don't see how that's Chad's doing.
Victor: No, it isn't. Sonny went into this for all the wrong reasons.
Kate: Victor, is Sonny okay?
Victor: He's got a lot going on. He won't listen to me on this thing.
Kate: What do you want me to do?
Victor: Be ready. Once this blows up in Sonny's face, there's going to be consequences... and an opening.
Kate: For what?
Victor: You're going to be in the perfect position to turn the tables on Chad.
Sonny: I can't tell you how much I've missed you.
Will: And me maybe... a little bit?
Sonny: You know I do.
Will: So is there anything to eat in this joint? We are starving.
Sonny: They didn't feed you on the plane?
Will: Nah. Wasn't hungry then. Food was awful, anyway.
Sonny: Well, let me fix you something.
Will: Okay. Hey.
Sonny: I can't believe you're here right now.
Will: Well, believe it.
Sonny: How long can you stay? Well--yeah, you don't have to answer that--I know the answer. Just, obviously, you know, you've been so busy with all your writing or whatever, so...
Will: Sonny, what's wrong?
Sonny: I just feel you're not going to be here long. I feel you're going to go back to L.A. In a few days.
Will: Sonny... I'm not going back to L.A.
Sonny: Why not?
Will: I was crazy to think that I could be away from you for that long. We're here to stay... forever.
Ben: So wait. Every member of your family, ever, has an ornament, and they all go on the tree every year.
Ben: How far back?
Abigail: My great-grandparents. Yeah, tom and Alice.
Ben: Must be one big frickin' tree.
Abigail: [Laughs] Yeah, it's getting a little crowded, I suppose. But there's always room for more.
Ben: Well, I guess if you need to make space, you could always retire some, right?
Abigail: No, no, that-- no, that's... that's... the beauty of it, you know. It's like everyone in my family is together. No matter where they are or what's happening with them or whether they're alive or they're dead, every single year on Christmas eve, it's like we're... we're all together again, and they're with us.
Ben: Like your dad?
Abigail: Yeah. I know how sappy this sounds.
Ben: No, not at all. It's sweet. You have a great family.
Abigail: Yeah, I'm lucky. And I know how rare it is. That's what I love about Jordan's charity. I'm so happy. It feels so good to be able to give back to someone else's family, you know, even just a little.
Ben: Abigail, you do that all the time.
Abigail: No, not really.
Ben: Yes, really. I'm telling you that every time you walk through that door, this family of one feels very, very lucky.
Abigail: All right, let's decorate that tree, and then I have to go home. Okay.
Chad: Jordan. This is a surprise. I thought you were going home after dinner.
Jordan: I did. Then Abigail texted, and I went to the hospital to help her with the outreach project.
Chad: Well, it didn't go well?
Jordan: Uh, yeah, it was fine. She was fine.
Chad: Okay, but something's wrong.
Jordan: Oh, I'm just tired. I really should go.
Chad: Wait. Don't. Just tell me. If something or someone upset you, let me help. Uh, it was Rafe again, wasn't it?
Rafe: Well, thanks for seeing me so late.
Victor: Well, I know you wouldn't have called if it weren't important.
Rafe: Yeah, well, I need information on a new guy in town. I think you might know some of the same people.
Victor: People that you can't find in the Salem business alliance?
Rafe: No. No, I think the guy operates in different circles. I need intel.
Victor: And you assume I have resources that you don't, huh? Just why is this my business?
Rafe: Maybe it isn't. Just thought you might be interested, since the guy is shacking up with Kate Roberts.
Victor: Ah, you must mean the hillbilly.
Rafe: Clyde Weston.
Clyde: Hi, there. This all right for a nightcap?
Kate: Uh, for tonight.
Clyde: How'd your meeting go?
Kate: Well, it could've gone better.
Clyde: Anything I can do to help?
Sonny: There's more.
Will: No, I'm full. That was delicious. What?
Sonny: You're here. You're there, up to your eyeballs in work and then...
Will: Truth? I hated Hollywood. I tried to be into it. I gave it everything that I had, but I hated being away from you. And I hated what it was doing to Gabi to have the baby be so far away. And I just started to think--
Adrienne: Will? Is that you?
Sonny: Shh, mom. Baby's sleeping.
Adrienne: Oh, I'm sorry. Oh, my God, she's such an angel. She's so big. Babe, oh, it's so good to see you. How long are you here?
Will: For good.
Sonny: He's home.
Adrienne: Well, that's wonderful.
Will: It is. I just remembered, I promised my mom that I would call her as soon as I got here. I'll be right back.
Adrienne: You better go. [Chuckles] Good news.
Sonny: The best.
Adrienne: So, um... wow. It's kind of funny that he showed up now.
Adrienne: Did you tell will about--
Sonny: He doesn't need to know about Paul.
Zoe: Hi. Paul. Uh, you going somewhere?
Will: No, mom, it's okay. Mom, don't make this a war with the studio. They gave me a shot. It was up to me. If they didn't like my work-- no, to be honest, I'm very happy to be home, and I would appreciate it if this was kept quiet. Because it's not going to be good for me if it gets out that the studios dumped me.
Adrienne: I wasn't talking about Paul. I thought about what you said on that.
Sonny: That it would be pointless and hurt will for no good reason?
Adrienne: Yes, and I get that. I was asking if you told will about the south side location.
Sonny: Well, what did uncle Vic say?
Adrienne: Well, nothing. Chad's the one who told me it was going so well. Does will know?
Will: What is it I don't know, Sonny? You keeping something from me?
Ben: So you're not staying?
Abigail: No, I can't. I'm sorry. I have to get up at dawn so that I can get the rest of my work done, and then I can hop on the phones at a decent hour and start dialing for dollars.
Ben: Is this for Jordan's charity project?
Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, it's such a great cause, but it's just really hard to get funding right now. Everybody's doing their end-of-the-year donations, and we're competing against a lot of really worthy causes, so...
Ben: Abigail, you'll nail it. Besides, didn't one of Jordan's patients already make a huge donation?
Zoe: Do you remember me?
Paul: We, uh--we went out.
Paul: Right, you're ZoŽ, the editor. Sorry, it took me a second.
Zoe: So many women, so little time?
Paul: [Laughs] So how did you track me down?
Zoe: Well, I do do this for a living, Paul.
Paul: Let's--let's talk in here. It's kind of funny how you found me when I was on a road trip.
Zoe: When you're recovering from surgery? Don't worry. I'm not gonna blow your cover.
Zoe: Just as long as Sonix gets the exclusive.
Adrienne: We were talking about Sonny's new location on the south side. There's already a lot of great buzz about it. It's gonna be huge.
Sonny: Oh, we don't know that yet.
Adrienne: Oh, honey, don't I get to be a proud mother here?
Sonny: Will you stop it? I'm really--it's been a long day--I'm sorry.
Will: Maybe we should get going home.
Adrienne: No, no, maybe you should. You know, I was actually on my way home when I saw the lights. I'm so glad you're home, baby.
Sonny: Hey, Mom, I'll walk you out.
Victor: So does that mean that you're off-duty?
Victor: So this is personal business.
Rafe: For now.
Victor: Huh. I hear Clyde is the stepfather of that pretty young thing that you brought to Sonny's wedding?
Rafe: Jordan Ridgeway. And the stepfather's rotten-- I can smell it.
Victor: And you want to protect your girlfriend?
Rafe: Eh, she's not--no.
Victor: She's not your girlfriend? That's a shame.
Victor: You blew it, huh? How?
Rafe: Doesn't matter.
Victor: It was Kate, wasn't it?
Rafe: It was my fault.
Victor: Oh, you poor slob. It was Kate.
Kate: Thank you, but I am going to have to handle this all on my own.
Clyde: And I'm sure you will. I missed you last night.
Kate: Well, what has it been, all of one day?
Clyde: Yes, almost. Why don't you come home with me?
Kate: I am so tempted to do that. But I have a conference call at 4:00 A.M. With European board members.
Clyde: We'll still be up.
Kate: [Chuckles] Rain check?
Clyde: All right. But tell me the truth... does this have anything to do with Jordan busting in on us last time?
Kate: No. Can you tell me the truth?
Clyde: Of course.
Kate: Did Jordan really pull a gun on you?
Chad: All right, what did Rafe do? Did he give you more grief about me?
Jordan: No, it was about Clyde. Look, I really don't want to get into it.
Chad: Yeah, whatever you want.
Jordan: I want to forget all about it.
Chad: Okay. But you can tell me.
Jordan: Maybe, but I know it doesn't make you happy to hear about Rafe.
Chad: Well, no, it doesn't make me happy to know that he upsets you.
Jordan: Look, it wasn't a big deal. I shouldn't have said anything. I really should go.
Chad: Listen, hey, what is the hurry?
Jordan: Well, this is why you ended the night earlier, right?
Jordan: Look, it's okay, though--I don't blame you.
Chad: I just didn't think you were ready.
Jordan: No, okay, I get it. I blew it before. You don't want to hear about you-know-who.
Chad: Okay, it's not about me.
Jordan: And I promise you, the next time I will not even mention--
Paul: So this is a shakedown.
Zoe: This is big news, and it will get out. Wouldn't you rather just deal with one publication? This way, you can control the story. So, when you make your recovery, we make the announcement with a full profile.
Paul: Why Sonix? This is a sports story.
Zoe: You're a bigger story than that.
Paul: I'll think about it.
Zoe: That is all I ask. Call me in the morning.
Paul: Zoe. One more thing.
Adrienne: I'm sorry.
Sonny: No, I'm sorry. It's just when everyone goes on and on about the south side location, I just need to lower the expectations.
Adrienne: Why? Why would you do that?
Sonny: It's not going well.
Adrienne: What? Chad said you're doing a fantastic job.
Sonny: Well, yeah, he thinks I can pull it off, but he has to think that. He's sunk so much money into the club. He just doesn't know the day-to-day.
Adrienne: What's the problem?
Sonny: Problems. Just--I've made a lot of mistakes.
Adrienne: Honey, you sound awful. Is it really that bad?
[Cell phone ringing]
Sonny: No, nothing's that bad. I'll figure it out.
Adrienne: Of course you will.
Will: Hi. Um, I got your text.
Zoe: Yeah, I figured it was still business hours in L.A.
Will: I, um... I just flew back into Salem.
Zoe: Seriously? Does that mean you're available?
Will: For what?
Zoe: An assignment just came up. I think you will find it very interesting.
Victor: You know, you're not the first guy that let Kate Roberts ruin his life. Hell, you're not even the first guy in this room. So you can tell me.
Rafe: What is this, ladies' book club?
Victor: [Chuckles] Sit down. What can I do for you, Rafe?
Rafe: Well... Jordan and her brother ran away from Clyde, in poplar bluff, Missouri, eight years ago. They've been living under aliases and running ever since just to get away from the bastard.
Victor: And your sources couldn't come up with anything on the guy?
Rafe: Well, he owns a trucking company and a small club in Branson.
Victor: A legitimate businessman.
Rafe: Yeah. The minute Clyde showed up in town, Jordan wanted to run.
Victor: But she stayed for you.
Rafe: So will you help me?
Victor: You've come to the right place. Never did like the look of that hayseed, anyway.
Clyde: Now, why on earth would you ask me that?
Kate: Because I heard you. You said that Jordan wasn't holding a gun in her hand this time. And then I remembered that a couple of weeks ago you were late to meet me, and you said the only reason that you would be late to meet me was if you were being held at gunpoint.
Kate: So you weren't joking, were you?
Clyde: Uh, Kate... both my kids have plenty of reason not to like me.
Kate: Okay, so that's really not an answer... unless, of course, that is the answer.
Clyde: There was a time when they'd have had the right to do just about anything. So I'm bound and determined to see that they don't have reason to hate me ever again.
Kate: Is that why you're seeing a shrink?
Clyde: I just want to be a better man for everyone in my life.
Kate: Hmm... "everyone"?
Clyde: Especially present company.
Kate: [Chuckles] Well, just don't get too nice, because I like you just the way you are right now.
Clyde: See you soon.
Kate: See you soon.
Jordan: I'm glad you're here.
Victor: I'll make a few calls.
Rafe: Quietly? I don't want Clyde to get wind of anything and come at Jordan.
Victor: You can always ride into the rescue.
Rafe: She's moving on... and not with someone who will look out for her.
Victor: Oh, you know the guy?
Rafe: Chad DiMera. Never trusted the guy, not since the day he broke up Gabi's wedding.
Victor: Well, that's child's play compared to what he's up to now.
Rafe: Yeah? Something I can check out for you?
Victor: Yes, as a matter of fact. Keep an eye on him for me. And I'll see what I can dig up for you.
Rafe: Well, Victor... thanks.
Victor: I got a name for you... Clyde Weston.
Paul: [Speaking Japanese] No, I have to do it, because if I don't, there's no telling what she's gonna print in her magazine. [Sighs] We have to control this.
Zoe: Can we talk tomorrow?
Will: Yeah, great. This sounds promising, Zoe. I'll see you tomorrow.
Sonny: So you ready to go home?
Will: I'm more than ready. I'm so happy that I'm here. I love you so much.
