Hope: [Sighs] You don't want to hear about Aiden?
Hope: Not a word?
Doug: You're trying to sell the guy to me, and I'm not buying. So, if you'll excuse me...
Hope: You're leaving?
Doug: Well, I'm not gonna be in town long. I have people to see and things to do.
Hope: No. This is unbelievable. No, dad. Nothing you have to do matters more than this.
Doug: This guy Aiden is that important?
Hope: You and I getting things straight is that important.
Aiden: So wait. You were just apologizing profusely for not letting hope be the one to tell her father about us.
Julie: Well, yes, I'm sorry I went against hope's wishes. But I've paid a price for it. As you could clearly see, Doug is furious with me for keeping your secret.
Aiden: But you didn't.
Julie: Hold on a minute here. You know, it's--it's you and hope that are making a big deal out of this. You seemed reluctant to let anybody know that you were seeing each other. I've got to wonder why that is. If you think you're so right for her, if you think you are worthy of her.
Maggie: Julie, Julie! You are flat-out wrong about Aiden.
Sonny: All right, I shouldn't be long.
Adrienne: Has this to do with the new club?
[Knock at door]
Lucas: Hey. Hey, merry Christmas.
Sonny: Hey, Lucas.
Lucas: How you doing? Listen, I know it's late. It's just I got to get to L.A. Tomorrow, and I wanted to stop by and give Ari a present, spend a little time with her.
Adrienne: Oh, get in line, pal.
Lucas: Are you kidding me? I got competition?
Sonny: I'm afraid so.
Lucas: Where's will?
Paul: Will... come on in.
Dr. Green: It's after office hours. Please call the receptionist tomorrow.
Paige: On Christmas eve? You promised you'd speak to me after your surgery.
Dr. Green: I-I have a lot of paperwork to finish.
Paige: Yes, I know you're a busy doctor. You may not remember everyone you talk to.
Dr. Green: Could you... get to the point, please?
Paige: My point is... I have a feeling my mother made quite an impression on you. So I'm sure you remember her.
Hope: Have a seat. Please. Let me get you some tea.
Doug: That's the strongest thing you've got?
Hope: If I throw in a shot, will you like me again?
Doug: You're not the one I don't--
Hope: Okay, all right. Just please stay right here. I'll be right back.
Doug: Oh, hello, little princess.
Ciara: I'm so glad you're home.
Doug: Where were you?
Ciara: At Britney's. Her mom brought me here to help bake cookies.
Doug: Well, thank heavens someone is on that job.
Ciara: Totally. Why the face?
Doug: It's the only face I got.
Ciara: You look like a Grinch.
Doug: I guess I'm still trying to get into the holiday spirit.
Ciara: You're mad about mom and Aiden, aren't you?
Doug: [Chuckles] You could be a detective, princess.
Ciara: Well, it's pretty obvious you don't like Aiden.
Doug: And do you?
Ciara: I didn't at first.
Doug: "At first"?
Ciara: Yeah, but... at first, I thought he was lame-O. But... he kind of grows on you.
Maggie: I hate a rush to judgment, Julie. But Aiden is a very good man. He's done some wonderful things for Salem and your family. He helped keep JJ out of jail, and he helped hope raise a ton of money for St. Luke's.
Julie: Well, that's all well and good, Maggie--
Maggie: And he makes hope happy.
Julie: Well, if everything is so wonderful, why is Doug furious with hope and with me?
Maggie: Could it be because you blabbed when you were supposed to keep your mouth shut? Just guessing. Well... I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Okay, what I meant to say was... merry Christmas, Julie.
Paige: I was here with my mother. We're Shane Donovan's relatives. You, uh--you said my grandfather had peritonitis. It's very serious, isn't it?
Dr. Green: Yes, it can be.
Paige: See, that worries me. Maybe it's because I'm premed myself, going to Stanford next year, currently doing an internship at the university hospital in Salem. I was referred there by a renowned surgeon-- Dr. Daniel Jonas. And I've been working for the chief of staff, Dr. Kayla Brady. Now, I'm about to put in a call to them, you know, just to make sure my grandfather is getting the best treatment possible. But before I do, I thought I'd give you a chance to explain.
Sonny: Will's working on a top-secret article for Sonix.
Lucas: Another cover story?
Lucas: Nice... except he's got to work this close to Christmas.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I mean, I'm in the same boat, though. In fact, I'm just headed out. I got to take care of a few things.
Adrienne: I have been left in charge.
Lucas: So what, I got to arm-wrestle your mother to get close to the baby, is that it?
Sonny: Hey, you're on your own. Give Sami and the kids a big hug for me and will.
Lucas: Will do.
Sonny: All right, merry Christmas.
Lucas: All right, take care.
Adrienne: Bye, hon. Well, Allie must be so happy you're going to be there for Christmas.
Lucas: I'm the happy one. I couldn't be-- couldn't be happier.
Lucas: I'm gonna miss a lot of family here, though.
Adrienne: Well, you'll be with some family, people you love. That's what everyone wants, isn't it?
Sonny: [Sighs deeply]
Will: Thank you for seeing me again so close to the holidays.
Paul: No problem.
Will: I'd like to pick up where we left off last time.
Will: How's the, uh-- the P.T. Going?
Paul: Oh, I'm at it full on. I'm up to about, uh, six hours a day.
Will: Whoa. That's a lot.
Paul: No time to waste.
Will: How does it feel to be doing so much?
Paul: So far, so good. I feel strong.
Will: So you think you'll be playing baseball again soon.
Paul: I'll get my evaluation the day after Christmas, and my goal is, uh... to be throwing again by mid-January. Now, if I can hit that, I should be good.
Will: That's--that's right before pitchers and catchers report for workouts, right?
Paul: My agents, uh-- they'll handle that. They're not worried.
Will: Well, um, I'd like to get to some more of the personal questions now, if that's okay.
Paul: Well, I guess that was part of the deal when I agreed to an in-depth interview.
Will: [Chuckles] Good. Just know you can take as much time with these as you like.
Paul: Sure. Fire away.
Will: Well... what would you do if you couldn't play baseball?
Paul: I'm going to play baseball.
Doug: So Aiden grew on you, huh?
Ciara: Totally. And... he's a very nice person.
Doug: But you didn't like him at first? Why not?
Ciara: Because he's not my dad. But who is? And besides, he doesn't try to be.
Doug: Well, that's to his credit. So... [Clears throat] Aside from his being nice and not trying to be your dad, anything else about him that changed your mind?
Ciara: He's fun and funny. He makes me laugh... mom too.
Doug: So he's fun and funny and makes you laugh. That's it?
Doug: What else?
Ciara: He really likes mommy. And she's a lot happier when he's around. And isn't that what we all want... for mommy to be happy?
Dr. Green: It's against HIPAA rules for me even to speak to you without your grandfather's permission. And while I appreciate that you're concerned about his condition--
Paige: I don't have to be, do I?
Dr. Green: Don't have to be what? What do you mean?
Paige: Concerned... in the least... because my grandfather isn't sick at all. He's perfectly fine.
Eve: I, uh... I don't know what to say.
JJ: Try this... good-bye.
Doug: Well, there's mommy.
Hope: Hey, my beautiful girl. Mwah. Dad... your tea. Still need a little extra sweetener with that?
Doug: Not needed. No, no, thanks.
Hope: What were you two talking about?
Doug: Second chances. It's a good time of year to hand them out, right?
Hope: Thank you, daddy.
Jennifer: Oh, all right, I'm just going to have to talk to them quickly.
Julie: Hi, darling! Oh, merry Christmas.
Jennifer: Oh, I'm so glad you're back.
Doug: Nice to see you.
Jennifer: So good to see you.
Maggie: Hello. How are you?
Doug: I'm fine. I'm fine.
Maggie: Hope, I heard we were baking cookies here.
Ciara: I get to do the icing.
Maggie: You do?
Jennifer: I bet Joey will help you with that.
Doug: May I have a word?
Maggie: I think so too.
Aiden: Of course.
Maggie: I know, I know. Absolutely, here we go.
Ciara: Don't worry about grandpa, mom. I got him buttered up.
Hope: Did it work?
Ciara: You so owe me.
Hope: Good thing it's Christmas.
Jennifer: Oh, speaking of, I need to go. I have to get ready for tomorrow.
Hope: Oh, what can I do to help?
Jennifer: I think your hands are full right now. Don't worry. But, Julie, you'll be there early tomorrow, right?
Julie: You bet.
Jennifer: Okay, great. I love you all.
Maggie: See you tomorrow.
Jennifer: Bye, sweetie.
Maggie: Bye. [Laughs]
Ciara: Can you help me decorate the cookies?
Maggie: Oh, I think I would love to do that.
Ciara: You have such a great eye.
Maggie: I do, huh? Okay, and you just buttered me up. Come on over here. Let's go.
Julie: Well, I hope Doug and Aiden can work everything out.
Hope: Me too.
Hope: You made him feel like he was the last to know.
Julie: He was the last to know, hope. And how is that my fault?
Will: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to imply that you weren't going to play baseball again. Let's move on.
Paul: No, will, it's a legitimate question.
Will: No, but I mean, it's just at the time just the way it sounded--
Paul: I overreacted.
Will: Well, I-I get it.
[Cell phone ringing]
Paul: Can you excuse me for a minute? Hi.
Sonny: Hey, it's me.
Lucas: So are you and Justin spending Christmas with Victor?
Adrienne: Justin isn't coming home.
Lucas: Why not? Where is he?
Lucas: Dubai? Still?
Adrienne: Yeah, six months now, almost seven.
Lucas: That is crazy.
Lucas: That's absolutely nuts, in fact.
Adrienne: Yes, it is. And it's such a long trip. It's not like he can commute, you know? Merger's taking a really long time, and there's a meeting the day after Christmas.
Lucas: So you could surprise him, fly over there.
Adrienne: It'd be that. There's nothing for me to do there except shop maybe. Justin's so busy, I'd just be in the way.
Lucas: Did he say that?
Adrienne: I didn't ask. I don't want to put him on the spot. Besides, sonny's here. The little one's here. This... this is my home.
Lucas: Well, if I were you, I'd pick up the phone and tell my husband to get his butt back to Salem A.S.A.P. Adrienne, come on. Come on, I was kidding. Adrienne.
Adrienne: [Whimpers] I'm sorry. It's just hard. It's Christmas.
Lucas: It's more than that, isn't it?
Paige: You lied to me, Dr. Green! You know, I get why my mom would lie to me, but how could you go along with it?
Dr. Green: Your mom is very... persuasive. She felt that it was important that you stay here in California.
Paige: Mm. So you lied to--
Dr. Green: No, no, no. Or I was... confused and looked at the wrong chart when I spoke to you before. Things get hectic before the holidays. The good news is your grandfather is well. I think we should focus on that. Now, if you'll excuse me...
Paige: Mom got a doctor to lie to keep me from going home? I can't believe how far she was willing to go to keep me away from JJ.
JJ: I can't believe how far you're willing to go to keep me away from Paige.
Eve: That's not what happened.
JJ: What, you didn't think the first time was bad enough? Now you have even more to tell Paige.
Eve: I don't want to.
JJ: No, but you would. If that meant us breaking up forever, you would tell her.
Eve: It won't come to that.
JJ: Oh, yeah, you hope... 'cause you want to fly back to California and play the good old caring mom.
Eve: I am.
JJ: You can fake it, can't you, eve? You go on telling her how she's so much better off without me, and you'll send her away to Stanford where she can meet someone who's worthy of her.
Eve: I just-- I wanted her to have a good life, JJ... better than mine. Better than--
JJ: Me? Better than me.
Eve: What just happened here proves that you're not good enough for my daughter.
JJ: Yeah, but I was good enough for you. I have nothing left... nothing left to lose.
Eve: JJ... wait. Are you going to tell Paige?
Aiden: Look, for what it's worth, um, I understand why you're upset. I'm a father myself.
Doug: But just with that one little boy, right?
Aiden: That's right.
Doug: Yeah, well, all due respect, Aiden, you haven't got a clue.
Doug: Really. Yes, you think everything's going to be different... when your son grows up and he has a family of his own. Well, it's not... especially if it's a daughter. You see... hope is always going to be my little girl.
Hope: You have a point. It isn't your fault... exactly. I'm sorry I gave you the look and the tone.
Julie: I'm sorry too.
Hope: Maybe I shouldn't have let it go on as long as I did. But I-I really thought it was best for dad to hear about me and Aiden in person.
Julie: I just wish we'd been home in Salem so you could have done that. This was really painful, hope. Every time he knew I'd spoken to you, he'd want to know how you were doing, and--
Hope: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't... I never should have put you in a position where you had to lie. I'm so sorry.
Julie: Clearly, I'm out of practice.
Paul: What's up?
Sonny: I just wanted to apologize. I said some things I shouldn't have.
Sonny: Yeah, I had no right to accuse you of playing games.
Paul: Yeah, you do. It'd be wrong, but... listen... don't worry about it.
Sonny: Okay, yeah, I just didn't want to leave things like that.
Paul: Thanks for that.
Sonny: So you going home for the holiday?
Paul: I'm kind of stuck here with my P.T.
Sonny: Is your family coming?
Paul: I tried to talk mom into it, but she can't make it.
Sonny: I'm sorry.
Paul: Ah, I don't really care. I mean, you know me and holidays. [Chuckles] I'm kind of used to it, being on the road.
Sonny: Well, maybe we can talk... after the holidays.
Paul: Yeah, I'd like that. Good night.
Sonny: Good night.
Will: Is everything all right?
Adrienne: It's nothing, really. It's just, you know... we've been through this before, and everything will be fine once Justin's home.
Lucas: Yeah, yeah, I'm sure it will. I'm sure it will. And this has got to be a big deal, this merger, right?
Adrienne: Oh, it is, it is.
Lucas: I mean, that's--that's the only thing I can imagine that would keep him away from you this long.
Adrienne: That's sweet.
Lucas: Well, that's me.
Adrienne: Oh, it is. [Chuckles]
JJ: How can you even ask me that? I know what it would do to Paige if she found out what you really are, and I can't break her heart that way. It's bad enough I have to break it by ending things.
Eve: You going to call her tonight?
JJ: No. I won't be talking to or seeing Paige ever again. I won't be able to take seeing her crushed. So I'm going to take the coward's way out and break it off through text.
Paige: [Sighs] Sebastian is learning his "time" tables.
Lucas: I'm just happy will and Ari are home.
Adrienne: Yeah. That's a relief.
Lucas: Were you worried?
Adrienne: Oh, I was starting to be.
Lucas: Did you think there was a long-term problem between will and sonny?
Adrienne: Sonny... you don't have to have this conversation with me. But you need to let Paul know exactly where you stand, and you need to be very clear.
Adrienne: Hi, honey.
Lucas: You got enough there?
Adrienne: Hey, did Santa do some last-minute shopping?
Lucas: Here, let me help you out here.
Sonny: Yeah, I saw a few things on the way home and couldn't resist.
Adrienne: I'll say. [Chuckles]
Sonny: That is great. She's gonna love that.
Adrienne: Isn't it awesome?
Sonny: We got to hide it before morning.
Adrienne: Yep, yep.
Sonny: How's Ari?
Adrienne: Fast asleep, no matter how much we stomped around the apartment accidentally trying to wake her up. [Chuckles]
Sonny: Yeah, she really needs her beauty sleep.
Sonny: Plus, she misses me.
Adrienne: Oh, yeah, honey, that must be it. [Chuckles]
Paul: Yeah, it's all good. So you had some more personal questions? I think we covered my love life last time.
Will: Well, we talked about a few of the women that you've dated. We didn't mention love. Are you--are you in love?
Will: [Chuckles] Anyone in particular?
Paul: There was someone... once. We were together a year, but it didn't work out.
Will: Model, actress?
Paul: Like I said, it didn't work out.
Paul: You got to stop saying that. It's not your fault.
Will: [Chuckles] So, free agency... who's your dream team? Who would you want to pick you up--Yankees or red sox?
Paul: Well, you can't say those teams names in the same breath.
Will: [Chuckles] Red sox.
Paul: It doesn't matter. I'll go wherever.
Aiden: I can understand that, Mr. Williams.
Doug: You don't think it's nuts worrying about a grown woman... a detective, no less, who clearly can take care of herself?
Aiden: Well, that's just one part of hope.
Doug: That's right.
Aiden: She also has a very vulnerable side.
Doug: And you can see that?
Doug: [Sighs] Why does that make me worry even more?
Aiden: [Chuckles] I don't know.
Doug: You know how I came here to Salem?
Doug: I shared a prison cell with bill Horton. I was a con man in my youth. And some of the things I did... some people really could have been hurt. Look, Aiden... I married Addie, who became hope's mother.
Doug: And the day hope was born, I took one look at her, and all I wanted to do was protect her... protect her from people like me.
JJ: Eve... you may have gotten away with this... for now. And maybe Paige never finds out about this thing. But someday she will find out what kind of mother and what kind of person you really are. And she will hate you just as much as I do.
Eve: No one... could hate me as much as I do.
Lucas: Hey, look, I'll text will, but, um, tell him I'm sorry I missed him, okay?
Sonny: Yeah, I will.
Lucas: All right.
Adrienne: Good night, baby.
Sonny: Good night. Where's your daddy, huh?
[Cell phone ringing]
Sonny: Yeah, this is sonny. That can't be. No, I was promised everything was up to code. That was included in the first quote. How much more do they need? That's extortion. No, I--no, that shouldn't be-- don't do that. Do not do that. Do not say anything. I'll come up with the money. Just give me 48 hours.
Will: Why don't we finish this the day after Christmas?
Will: I don't have many more questions. Just, um... think about what you absolutely don't want in the article.
Paul: [Chuckles] Well, that's a different approach for a journalist.
Will: Oh, I've been burned on this before. Trust me, an article doesn't have to have every single detail of your life in order to be great. You have to protect your privacy.
Paul: Well, I appreciate that. And as a thank-you, I, uh, will never tell your publisher that you said that.
Will: [Laughs] That's dumb, huh?
Paul: Well, I would never let a batter choose the pitches I threw.
Will: Yeah, but you two-- you're going against each other. You and I... well, we're on the same team.
Paul: I'd like to think so. Uh, well, I guess I'll see you after Christmas.
Will: Merry Christmas, Paul.
Paul: And to you too.
JJ: [Sniffles] [Crying]
Eve: [Sighs] Yes, could you book me on the next available flight to los Angeles from--
[Cell phone beeping]
Eve: Just a minute. I'm going to have to call you back. Hi, honey. I'm glad you called. Look, I-I missed the flight tonight, but I'll be on the next plane tomorrow morning, okay?
Paige: Don't bother.
Adrienne: You've been so quiet.
Lucas: Well, just waiting for you to tell the truth, that's all.
Adrienne: About what?
Lucas: You said you were worried about sonny and will.
Adrienne: So are you. I mean, will was out there, and they couldn't even manage to get on the phone together.
Lucas: Yeah. Yeah, you're right. That did seem a little different.
Adrienne: It was bad enough.
Lucas: But now everything's okay, right? Will's home where he belongs, so everything's back to normal.
Adrienne: There's no reason for me to think otherwise. Look, I was probably just reading more into it because... [Chuckles] Because that's what I do.
Lucas: That and your, uh, situation with Justin maybe.
Adrienne: There's no situation with Justin.
Adrienne: You know what? I need to get home and finish my wrapping. You have a good time in L.A.
Lucas: I will.
Adrienne: And... give my best to Sami and the kids. Have a really merry Christmas, okay?
Lucas: Okay. [Sighs] Yeah, you too, Adrienne. You too.
Sonny: Hey, it's sonny. I just transferred the money. Tell them this has to be the end. We need to be ready to open in January. Yes, at the beginning of the year. Just tell them.
Sonny: Hey. How was the interview?
Will: It was, um-- it was pretty good.
Sonny: Ah. I'm sure you're going to make it better than pretty good. You'll knock it out of the park.
Sonny: That was funny?
Will: Kind of. What's this?
Sonny: Oh, your dad bought it for Ari.
Will: This is great. You okay?
Sonny: Yeah, I'm great. It's just been a long day. I'm gonna go hide this.
Paul: Merry Christmas.
Sonny: You shouldn't have.
Paul: That ball was the one and only ball that I ever hit out of the park for my one and only major league home run.
Sonny: And you're giving it to me?
Paul: I am. Merry Christmas, sonny.
Sonny: I love it. And I love you.
Julie: I love you. I love you to pieces. I hope you know that.
Hope: Of course I know that, and I love you.
Julie: And if Aiden is going to make you happy, I will learn to live with it.
Hope: Come here.
Hope: Thank you. Julie... you don't think daddy's trying to get rid of him, do you?
Julie: I think Doug and Aiden are probably off having a good time. I think it is going to be all right. And I'm sure it's going to be a wonderful Christmas. [Chuckles]
Ciara: God bless us, everyone.
Julie: Oh. [Laughing]
Doug: You have a big fan in Ciara.
Aiden: Really? She likes to keep me guessing.
Doug: She's tough. And she's a good judge of character. So is hope. They both think a lot of you.
Aiden: I don't take that lightly, sir.
Doug: I don't either. Start over?
Aiden: I appreciate this.
Doug: I trust you will be the man they think you are.
Jennifer: Hi, honey. I'm so glad you're home.
Jennifer: I still have so much to do, but it is going to be the best Christmas.
JJ: "Paige... this is the best Christmas of my life because of you. You make me want to be a better person. I love you... now and forever."
Eve: Honey, what do you mean "don't bother"?
Paige: I booked a flight for tomorrow morning. I'm coming back to Salem.
Eve: No, honey, d-d-don't do that.
Paige: Stop it, mom. I know what you've done. I know everything.
