Marlena: Oh, Paul. Hi.
John: Oh, hey. I know you. You're Paul Narita.
Paul: Yeah, I am. Who the hell are you?
Sonny: Will? Great news. My mom would love to take Ari tonight so we can celebrate New Year's.
[Cell phone ringing]
Will: Hey. What emergency? The roof? No, I paid in full. Now it could cost twice as much? Well, find out for sure and call me back tonight. I don't care how late it is. Call me back.
Will: Sonny... what's wrong
Paige: JJ... what do you mean you're not good enough for me? That's so not true.
JJ: No, it is true, Paige. When you were gone, um... I did something... something really bad.
Serena: This Nicole chick is still obviously obsessed with Eric.
Melanie: I didn't tell Eric. I didn't tell anybody.
Nicole: Then how did Eric know I was in Serena's room that night?
Melanie: I don't know-- Dad.
Nicole: Daniel, I-I-I... I thought you were going to be at the hospital for--
Daniel: Well, I'm not! And since I'm here, why don't you tell me what the hell you were doing in Serena Mason's hotel room?
Nicole: Daniel, I don't know what you heard--
Daniel: Oh, I heard everything.
Daniel: Do you want to deny it right now?
Nicole: No, I don't want to deny it.
Daniel: And how do you-- how do you know about it?
Melanie: Um, the, uh--when we had pizza that night, I went to Serena's hotel room, and I saw Nicole there, but she asked me not to say anything.
Serena: Oh, my God, Nicole went through all of these... which means she probably also went through the emails between Eric-- [Sighs with relief] Thank God she didn't look in there.
John: I'm, uh--
Marlena: Paul, this is John Black. He's a very big baseball fan.
Paul: I'm sorry. I didn't-- I didn't mean to be so rude.
John: Yeah. It's okay.
Marlena: I know you're, uh-- you're trying to keep your visit here in Salem under wraps, but... you can sure trust John.
John: So how do the two of you know each other?
Paul: We met at the hospital.
John: Uh--oh, yeah, yeah. I heard you signed some autographs for the kids-- baseballs. That was really nice of you.
Marlena: How is your physical therapy going?
Paul: Perfect. You can't tell? I'm a brand-new man. If you'll excuse me...
John: Yeah, nice to meet you too. What's his problem?
Marlena: Oh... I really can't say.
Sonny: Just an issue with the new club. It's minor stuff.
Will: Well, it didn't sound so minor.
Sonny: I'm gonna take care of it.
Will: Well, I hope taking care of it doesn't mean investing more of your paycheck, because--
Sonny: No, no, no, no. Hey, I thought we talked about this. We're gonna celebrate tonight. We're not gonna argue.
Will: I'm not wanting to argue or fight. I just... I just want to know the truth.
Sonny: [Sighs] Will, the truth is... I could lose everything tonight.
Paige: What do you mean? I know you'd never go back to dealing drugs.
JJ: No, no. It wasn't drugs. It was... it wasn't anything illegal. No, the point is, is that I am no good for you. So we have to be done.
Paige: No, no! I'm not letting you walk away like this, okay? JJ, I can't stand this. If you loved me-- I-I-if you love me, you... you have to tell me what it is that you did.
JJ: Paige, it won't help to know the truth... 'cause you're a wonderful person.
Paige: I'm a wonderful person--really?
JJ: What I'm try-- what I'm trying to say is that it's not your fault. It's all on me. And I just can't be with you.
Paige: That's not a reason. Why are you breaking up with me, JJ? You know, you keep saying you don't deserve me, but I know one thing I do deserve, and that's the truth.
JJ: Trust me... you don't want to know.
Sonny: It might not be an issue at all. But if the roof does need to be repaired... it could be in the neighborhood of $25,000.
Sonny: On top of what you've already invested, which is... how much?
Sonny: A lot... everything, everything.
Will: Um, well, can you-- c-can you--can you go and just pull the money out?
Sonny: No, I can't take any money out. I spent everything. It's gone.
[Cell phone rings]
Sonny: You're not gonna take that, are you?
Will: It's work. With the way things are going right now, I don't think we can turn it down. [Sighs] Hi.
Paul: I've been thinking. I want you to write the story about my career being... over. Can you talk tonight?
Eric: Serena, I am so sorry. I knew I should have told you in person what Nicole did, but... you must feel so violated. You don't even know Nicole. She came into your room and went through your things. She apologized for something she wasn't a bit sorry for.
Serena: There's only one thing I want to know about Nicole Walker.
Eric: What's that?
Serena: Is that woman completely out of her mind?
Nicole: Daniel, I-I can explain, if you--
Daniel: Oh, I can't wait to hear it. Didn't you say you were going to Carla's and Emily's New Year's party?
Melanie: Yeah, yeah. No, I'm gonna go, I just figured you would want to hear what--
Daniel: You know what? Well, I can hear it later, 'cause you probably should get going... now, because I need to talk to Nicole.
Melanie: Okay, okay.
Nicole: Daniel, I'm... I'm sorry you're so upset. But I swear, I-I didn't mean--
Daniel: No, of course you meant it. You think that I don't know what this is about? You are not over Eric, are you? Let me get this straight...
Will: I-I want to talk, but does it have to be tonight? I mean, it's New Year's Eve.
Paul: I've got nothing else to do. But if you have plans and you'd rather I give this story to somebody else, just say the word.
Will: No. I can do tonight. I'll be right over.
Sonny: You're leaving?
Will: I'm sorry. But if I don't go and do this, I'll lose the assignment. We need the paycheck. A-and I've already worked so hard on--on this piece.
Sonny: Yeah, I know.
Will: I really think it's gonna be huge. And I need this momentum for my career after taking the break and going to L.A. And... Sonny, I promise I'll be home before midnight. And--and then after we ring in the new year, we--we can sit down. We'll talk about all--
Sonny: Just go. Just go.
Paige: I can't just walk away and accept that it's over without knowing why. After everything we've been through together, I need to know why, okay? Whether you think I can take it or not.
Paige: No, no. Okay, I know you still have feelings for me. And I don't think you want this to end any more than I do.
JJ: Well, I'll tell you why it has to. You know, it's not rocket science. But maybe if it was, you probably would have figured it out. While you were gone... I-I thought that we were done. So I hooked up with someone else.
Brady: Hey. You decided to go shopping after all.
Melanie: No, no, no. I'm just passing through.
Brady: Okay, stop, stop, stop. What is wrong? Did I do something to you?
Melanie: No, no, I already told you. You haven't done anything.
Brady: Excuse me, then why are you so upset?
Melanie: I'm not upset. I'm furious at your stupid friend Nicole.
Eric: Nicole is a very tenacious person...
Serena: No kidding.
Eric: Who's also extremely resourceful.
Serena: [Scoffs] Tenacious and resourceful-- we should just give her a gold star.
Eric: I should have known she wouldn't give up so easily.
Serena: Because she loves you and she wants you back.
Eric: She's not that delusional.
Serena: So, if she can't have you, she doesn't want anyone else to have you.
Eric: Our breakup was ugly for both of us. She knows what I gave up to be with her.
Serena: Your vocation.
Eric: I think it was her misguided way of trying to protect me.
Serena: From me? [Scoffs] Eric, I think you may be a-a bit generous with your interpretations of your ex's motives.
Eric: Maybe I am. Look, if you want me to, I will call my aunt Hope who is a detective at the Salem P.D., where you can file a formal complaint, 'cause obviously what Nicole did was not only out of line, but it was illegal. I'll support you 100%, whatever you decide to do about it.
Nicole: Daniel, you couldn't be more wrong. I am so over Eric.
Nicole: And the only reason I was in Serena's room was to make amends for what I did earlier.
Daniel: Yeah, and what exactly did you do earlier?
Nicole: Well, it was a misunderstanding. Okay, some well-known journalist comes to town--my professional curiosity got the best of me. So I started... doing research.
Daniel: Out of professional curiosity?
Daniel: Yeah? It had nothing to do with the fact that she's Eric's ex?
Nicole: Okay, you know what? Eric was stalking me, by the way. He was looking over my shoulder, and he made some innocent internet search look like some kind of capital crime, okay? But I took the high road. I did. I bought this woman an orchid, a woman that I barely know, and I brought it to her room.
Daniel: Hmm, and then just--
Nicole: And then I... you know, I had a hard time figuring out what to write on the card. I mean, what do you write? You know, "I'm--I'm sorry I had the audacity to--to type in your name in a search engine"?
Daniel: Yeah. So you--
Nicole: So this bellhop-- he--he--he let me in the room so that I could...
Daniel: So you could what? Oh--oh, take your time? Take your time to write something more?
Daniel: Okay, okay. So--so you went in the room, left the plant, oh, and the note and then you went right out?
Nicole: Well, I--it took me a little while to write the note.
Daniel: To snoop around some more... see how much dirt you could dig up on her. Come on, Nicole! Please, we both know why you checked her out and why you went through so much trouble to apologize. No, this has nothing to do with taking the high road, does it? Answer me. Does it?
Nicole: Do you blame me... for being curious about this... this woman? I mean, wouldn't you be? Don't you think it's a coincidence that she made friends with your daughter in Europe after she had this past with Eric in Africa, which, by the way, he never talks about?
Daniel: Nicole, stop. You can stop explaining.
Nicole: Thank you. Daniel, I just--I want to start getting ready for the Mayor's Ball. I'm really excited. I...
Daniel: Good night, Nicole.
Daniel: Happy New Year.
Brady: Let me guess. Is it about Serena Mason?
Melanie: I can't believe I let that lying train wreck talk me into covering for her. I knew I couldn't trust her, and now my dad's upset with me.
Brady: I'm sorry.
Melanie: And Serena's my friend too, so I'm supposed to just sit back and let Nicole hurt her and my dad?
Brady: No, of course not.
Melanie: Well, then what am I supposed to do? Because had I just told my dad the truth like I wanted to when I wanted to, then I wouldn't be sitting here wasting a New Year's resolution on Nicole Walker, who I hate!
Nicole: Daniel... I understand that you're angry. And I don't blame you.
Daniel: Wow. Lucky me, huh?
Nicole: But it's New Year's. And I know you practically had to give blood to get those tickets to the Mayor's Ball. Can you just give me a chance here?
Daniel: Give you--I just did. I just did. And I didn't believe a word you said. Do you?
Daniel: Do you, really? You tell me you're over Eric, but it's plain to see that you're not.
Daniel: And, sure, you can't help your feelings. But for you to lie to me again?
Nicole: I'm not lying to you!
Daniel: Oh, my--
Nicole: Can you please believe--
Daniel: No, for you to even say that, it means you are lying to yourself. I-- [Groans] Nicole. I can't do this. Maxine? Hey, it's Daniel. Yeah, you can stop looking for somebody to cover the midnight shift. It just turns out that I can come in after all. Yeah. Yeah, I'll be in ASAP. Yep. Well, lock the door on your way out. Oh, and you can just snoop to your heart's content before you do, because there is nothing about Eric in this apartment that could just possibly pique your professional curiosity.
Nicole: Daniel, can you wait, please? [Cries softly]
Serena: I will... leave clear instructions with the front desk not to let Nicole in my room whatsoever. I'll--I'll... I'll get a new key, just in case. And hopefully, that'll be the end of it.
Eric: It will be. I'll make sure of it.
Serena: Okay. Then let's just forget this ever happened... at least for tonight.
Eric: Are you sure?
Serena: Yeah. As icky as it feels... to have my privacy invaded like that and as angry as I am with Nicole... you're probably right. She's in a lot of pain. She lost you. And I know from experience how hard that is. But I got through it. And so will she. Now, I learned a long time ago that if someone is trying to ruin your life, do not let them ruin your night. So enough about Nicole, okay?
Serena: This is our New Year's. And I intend to make it a memorable one.
Paul: That was quick.
Derrick: Compliments of the management. Happy New Year, sir.
Paul: Thank you, Derrick.
Derrick: Would you like me to come in and open the bottle for you?
Paul: You're here.
Will: I-I am.
Paul: Thanks, I'll--I'll take it from here, Derrick. Come on in. Let's get started, shall we?
Paige: You... I don't believe you.
JJ: You wanted the truth. Now you have it.
JJ: Look, it's not your fault, okay? But after you basically broke up with me--
Paige: What? No, I-I... I know you were really upset when I told you that I might not be coming back to Salem, but I did not break up with you. You knew that it wasn't my choice to stay in California. You knew that I wanted to be here with you.
JJ: Well, what, was I just supposed to wait forever?
Paige: Forever? It was only a couple of days.
JJ: You know what? I-I can't talk about this right--
Paige: What? No, you're not getting off that easy, JJ. Okay? Before you go, I want to know who you did this with. Who was she?
Paige: Do I know her? Do I know the slut you slept with? My God, I do. Of course I do.
JJ: I didn't--I didn't say that.
Paige: Well, say something, damn it!
Rory: Oh, JJ, my man! Hey, we just came here to stake out a spot for the fireworks. Hey, look who's back! Are you, uh--are you guys coming to the party?
JJ: Yeah. Yeah, I am. But, uh, Paige was just leaving. Right, Paige?
Paul: [Sighs] I mean, baseball's been my entire life. I have no idea what I'm gonna do now.
Will: But you don't have to leave the sport. You could be a sportscaster, a coach.
Paul: Look, I have had a great career over the last few years. But I'm gonna be remembered for the tragedy of lost potential... not for what I accomplished. In baseball, I'm nothing without my arm, and... now it's gone.
Will: But you're so much more than that. I mean, have you thought about going back to school? You're still young.
Paul: You know, I was out walking today, and somebody recognized me. And at first, I was a little annoyed. And--and then I started to realize that this isn't gonna happen much longer. I mean, how do you go from being Paul Narita, the guy with the billion-dollar arm... to nobody... to just plain old Paul? I mean, without baseball, I don't even know who that guy is.
Will: Well, maybe it's time for you to find out.
John: It's perfect. You know, I know that Narita doesn't know where he's gonna land next year, but I'll tell you something. If it's with my Cubs, I think I'm gonna have to tune out. [Chuckles]
John: Why am I talking about Paul Narita?
Marlena: Why are you talking about Paul Narita?
John: I don't know. But I think if I ask Dr. Marlena Evans, she'd probably say it's... avoidance... because I just... can't put into... doc, I have missed you more than I can even say.
Marlena: You don't have to say it. That's how much I missed you too.
Brady: You're talking to a guy who eloped with a psycho... who almost killed my dad. So, if he can forgive me, I don't think you have anything to worry about with Daniel.
Melanie: I just hate disappointing him. And it bugs me that Nicole's his friend. She's always figuring out some way to get me in trouble with him.
Brady: I know you probably don't want to hear this right now, but Nicole--she's not that bad once you get to know her. Melanie, she's--
Melanie: Thank you so much for that.
Brady: Okay, all right. This isn't working. I know what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna go over there, and I'm gonna buy two... hot chocolates... delicious hot chocolates, because chocolate makes everything better, right?
Melanie: Yeah, for me.
Brady: I know that about you. I'll be back.
Melanie: Dad, Dad. Hi.
Daniel: Mel, hey.
Melanie: Hi, I feel so bad about what happened before. I-I know you wanted to talk to Nicole, so I let you, but I just thought maybe you would want to hear my side of--
Daniel: Okay, it's really not necessary.
Melanie: It's not--why?
Daniel: I shouldn't be upset with you. I asked you to stay out of my private life. I guess, in a way, that's exactly... exactly what you did.
Melanie: Yeah. Yeah. No, uh--well, uh, maybe that wasn't a good idea, because now I know--I thought you and Nicole were just friends, and you're going on a date now. I didn't know that.
Daniel: Well, I didn't tell you because I wanted to see how it went first. But now it's not going at all.
Melanie: I can't say I'm--I'm--I can't say I'm not happy about that.
Daniel: Okay, you know what? I got to get to the hospital. We'll talk later.
Melanie: Okay. Yeah--wait, Dad. Happy New Year--
Brady: Hot chocolate. Hey. These smell great. What's wrong?
Nicole: [Chuckles] And I thought this New Year's Eve was gonna be so special. Happy New Year.
Daniel: Happy New Year.
Nicole: You know what? No, I'm not gonna sit here and mope away the final hours of the old year. I should be with Daniel, ringing in the new. Voicemail. You know what, it's better. Face-to-face. That's what I need to do. I need to convince Daniel that I am over Eric. Yeah. Eric is the furthest thing from my mind.
Maxine: I thought you had plans.
Daniel: My plans changed.
Maxine: Well, I can keep looking for someone if you'd like to ring in the New Year with your daughter.
Daniel: Can we stop talking about my personal life? Let's just focus on doing our jobs and helping sick people... shall we?
Melanie: No, my dad wants me to stay out of his personal life. I get that--I get that. I respect that, okay? But just the idea of him dating Nicole--I don't want it to sound like I'm happy he's unhappy--I'm not. It just--but they're not right for each other.
Brady: Well, it sounds like you don't have to worry about it anymore.
Melanie: Well, I don't want him upset with me.
Brady: Daniel adores you. And if he's in a bad mood, do you really think it's all about you? Hmm?
Melanie: [Laughs] No. You're right. I'm sorry I dumped all this on you.
Brady: Don't be sorry, that's what friends are for. I hope I helped a--a little.
Melanie: Ha. You did. You always do, though.
Brady: Yeah? 'Cause it seems like you were pretty upset with me earlier.
Melanie: No, no.
Brady: Yeah, it seemed that way.
Melanie: No, no, no, I-- I already told you, I'm just-- that--that was...
Brady: Okay. Okay. Then come with me.
Brady: Because we're gonna go start 2015 off right. Get your hot chocolate.
Melanie: Okay. Where are we going?
Brady: Oh, I don't know, just somewhere.
Caroline: Do you recognize this? You were passing through Paris and you bought this as a birthday gift for me. It was you, wasn't it?
Eric: It--it was. You know I--I wasn't the one intended to drink it.
Caroline: Well, I saved it for a special occasion. And I think that this is definitely that.
Eric: Well, let me do the honors.
Caroline: I run a bar. Right? So I...
Caroline: I think I can handle it.
Caroline: I'd like to give you an old Irish toast. May the blessed light shine on you. Light within and light without. May the sunlight shine on you and warm your heart so that it becomes like a great peak fire, and may the light shine out of the two eyes in you, like two candles in a house bidding a stranger to come in from the storm. Ow--oh!
Serena: Oh, are you okay?
Eric: Hey, let me see that. Let me see that--I got it.
Caroline: No, no, no--it's...
Eric: Let me look at it.
Caroline: No, it's--
Eric: You know what, it's not that bad.
Caroline: My hand slipped. I'll just feel silly.
Eric: Go to the kitchen and we'll get the first aid kit.
Caroline: You don't need to do that.
Eric: How many times have you done that for me?
Caroline: All right.
Eric: Listen, I'll be back before the ball drops. I hope.
Serena: Okay, I'll--I'll take care of the champagne. I hope I won't be drinking it alone.
Rory: Damn, JJ. That was cold. I mean, a couple of days ago, you were all Paige, Paige, Paige.
JJ: I don't want to talk about it, okay?
Rory: Okay. Well, the party...it's over there.
JJ: So go party.
Rory: Dude, come on. It's New Year's Eve.
JJ: Dude, I said go get stoned... and leave me the hell alone.
Will: You're not a nobody, Paul. And you never will be. But maybe if you stop trying to be Paul Narita all the time, if you let go of that pressure, you'll find that regular life, it's not so bad.
Paul: I hope you're right.
Will: Wow, how'd it get so late--it--it's almost midnight.
Paul: Uh, well, uh... we can't let this go to waste. Let's open it!
Sonny: "2012. Get Will Horton to fall in love with me." "2014... marry the man I love."
Will: Paul, I--I can't stay.
Paul: You leave now, and you are gonna ring in the New Year alone on University Boulevard. You came all the way out here. The least that I can do is give you a glass of champagne. These little angels build in softness.
John: Happy New Year, Doc.
Marlena: Happy New Year.
[Cell phone rings]
Sonny: Hey, what's the verdict? Are you sure? No, it's not your fault. Thanks for letting me know.
[Fireworks popping distantly]
Sonny: Happy New Year, Will... wherever you are.
Paul: To 2015.
Paul: Thank you for helping me see. It's gonna be a whole new beginning for me. Maybe for both of us.
Melanie: I didn't know you could see the fireworks from here.
Brady: Oh, yeah. Best view in town--nobody knows it.
[Fireworks whistling, popping]
Brady: You know, 2015's not off to such a bad start, is it?
Brady: You know, I can, um... I can drive you back to the hospital so you can talk to your dad.
Melanie: That's very sweet. Thank you. For everything.
Brady: I'm glad you're back. Happy New Year.
Daniel: You don't want to go watch the fireworks?
Maxine: Just doing my job and helping sick people.
Daniel: Okay, Maxine, I am sorry. I was in a lousy mood.
Daniel: And I shouldn't have taken it out on you. But I would like to start the new year off on a better note with some of this apple cider right here.
Maxine: You don't have to do that, Dr. Jonas.
Daniel: Oh, but I do. For you, my lady. Here we go. To good friends and better judgment. Mmm...
[Dance music playing]
Man: Hey, babe.
Serena: Maybe next time.
[Fireworks continue popping]
Nicole: Ooh, gosh, I-- sorry, I...
Serena: Happy New Year, Nicole.
Nicole: Serena. Uh...Happy New Year. Well, I have somewhere to be, so--
Serena: No! Nicole, you're not going anywhere.
