Brady: This was about to get physical, that's why I came in between--
Melanie: I can take care of myself.
Theresa: Yeah, no one wants you here, we're fine.
Brady: I don't know what you two are fighting about, but--
Both: Just get out!
Brady: You want to kill each other? Is that what you're gonna do, huh?
Melanie: You invaded our privacy.
Brady: No, I didn't, Melanie. I came back to get my papers. That's all I came back--
Melanie: Your papers? Okay. Here. You can go.
Theresa: Yeah, now.
Ben: Well, at least this morning, we actually did run.
Abigail: Yes, we did, for once. [Laughing] Okay, I have to go. I'm gonna be late for work.
Ben: All right, all right. And I better be right on time as well, now that Chad's breathing down my neck.
Abigail: Yeah, what's up with that, by the way? I thought that he said he wouldn't go to the club that much.
Ben: [Scoffs] Right. He always tells the truth. I'll see you later.
Abigail: Mwah. Bye, have a good day.
Ben: You too.
Abigail: [Gasps] [Sighs]
Clyde: Well...[Chuckles] Don't you look pretty as a picture this morning?
Jordan: Did you get Rafe fired? Answer me!
Chad: Why would I do that?
Jordan: Because I told you that Rafe was coming after you, and I heard what Rafe said to you. Why would he even be here if you had nothing to do with it?
Chad: Because I know he just got exactly what he deserved. It should have happened a long time ago.
Sonny: Look, I get that you're busy, but this is important.
Will: And I'm on a deadline. I'm waiting for someone. Gotta go.
Sonny: I can't understand you. Will, are you there? Hello? H--
Paul: I heard you came to see me last night at my hotel. I'm really sorry that I missed you.
Hope: Bree's saying that, uh, you called her after she talked to me, and as ridiculous as it sounds, threatened her if she ever did it again.
Aiden: Well, she said that because... it's exactly what I did.
Hope: You threatened her?
Aiden: And I would do it again.
Hope: So what Bree said was true, you threatened her after you found out she tried to warn me about you. I just can't believe this, that you would threaten a woman.
Aiden: Hope, it's not what you think.
Aiden: Look, we can't talk about this here, okay? Let's go somewhere a little bit more private. I need to make you understand that you can trust me, that I can explain.
Brady: I was worried. I heard you two yelling.
Melanie: We're fine.
Brady: All right, well, I thought that--
Melanie: You thought wrong. You've been wrong about a few things.
Theresa: Huh. Wow, I couldn't have said it better myself. You know, for once, Melanie and I actually agree on something. You need to leave.
Jordan: You know why Rafe was fired?
Chad: They probably found out that he knew what Gabi did to Melanie--right after it happened--and didn't tell anyone.
Jordan: You knew about that too?
Chad: Yeah. I told you that already.
Jordan: Which is why I'm wondering who else could have done this to Rafe.
Kate: Mwah. [Laughs]
Will: Thank you for your help.
Kate: Well, I was a little surprised you wanted to talk to me about it.
Will: Well, I know that I violated my confidentiality clause, and so you can't tell anyone what you read.
Kate: Honey, I won't.
Will: I knew I could trust you, and with all the time you spent at titan publishing... I need your advice.
Kate: Okay, any time.
Will: So you got it, the rough draft of the article on Paul Narita?
Kate: I did.
Will: And what did you think?
Kate: I think he has a very powerful arm... and an equally powerful personality.
Sonny: I don't know why you would think that.
Paul: The bellboy told me. So you show up at my door late new year's eve--or early new year's day. What's up with that?
Sonny: Wow, that bellboy's just full of information. He told me you already had company.
Paul: I did, but that was strictly business.
Sonny: Strictly business? Late new year's eve, early new year's day?
Paul: You don't believe me. You think as short as a time as I've been in this town, I've already been with someone else?
Theresa: Look, I honestly don't know where your paperwork is, but I'll see if I can find it, okay? I mean, there's work being done in Anne's office right now, but I'll see if I can sneak in and look around.
Melanie: Thank you.
Theresa: Sure. So I'll see you back here in an hour or so?
Theresa: Cool. You know, Melanie, before we knew who the other one was and we hated each other, we kind of hit it off. Maybe we could start again, and at least try to get along, 'cause we both have to work here, and, well, we have one thing in common.
Melanie: We do?
Theresa: Yeah, we both feel the same way about Brady.
Theresa: We both know he's, like, this wannabe knight in shining armor, that he rides into town, but when it comes to real situations, he's completely inept on what to do or what to say, and-- right? He's well intentioned, but--
Melanie: He's definitely well intentioned.
Theresa: Well, yeah, but that's not everything. I mean, seriously, come on, let's be honest, when it comes to women, the dude is, like, lame and useless and--I mean, he thinks he's being so honest, but really, he's just leading people on, and he tries to be, like, your best friend, he's Mr. Sensitivity, but in the end, it's always all about Brady.
Melanie: When it should be all about you, right?
Theresa: What? Come on, you know I'm telling the truth. But he's got all that money, he's got a grandpa that covers for him no matter what he does. I mean, look, maybe it's not his fault that he's a self-centered, spoiled, "used to having his own way" loser, but--
Melanie: Okay, let's shut up about Brady.
Brady: You don't want my help, Melanie? That's the last time I'll ever offer it. Great. Why do they-- [Groans]
Maggie: Brady? Are you okay? You frankly look like you could use a--
Maggie: A meeting.
Clyde: Well, I'm sorry if I'm interrupting, but I just wanted to see Ben's new place, and I know he's starting school tomorrow, so--
Abigail: Yes, thanks to you. He's very excited.
Clyde: Oh, I am too. Yeah. My boy in college, I couldn't be more proud of him. [Laughing]
Abigail: Yeah. You know who else is proud? Is Ben. To be wearing his great-grandfather's watch? I mean, you have to know that that meant so much to him.
Clyde: Well, I'm just trying to make up for lost time, you know, and past sins.
Abigail: Yeah, well, from where I'm standing, it looks like you are off to a good start.
Clyde: Well, thank you for telling me.
Abigail: Okay, I'm gonna get to work, but there's juice and, you know, stuff in the fridge, so just help yourself.
Clyde: Miss Deveraux?
Abigail: Oh, Abigail.
Clyde: Abigail, it was nice talking to you.
Abigail: It was nice talking to you too, Clyde. Bye.
Clyde: Bye-bye. Huh. [Clicks tongue] Good catch, Ben.
Jordan: Who else even knew that about Rafe?
Chad: Melanie, EJ, Sami, who probably told Kate, because she told her everything else.
Jordan: Kate knew.
Chad: And Sonny knew, but there's no way Sonny would have done anything like that look, Jordan, I swear to you, I had nothing to do with what happened to Rafe.
Sonny: Do you really think you're fooling people, Paul? That bellboy clearly has your number.
Paul: He doesn't know anything. Besides, it doesn't matter.
Sonny: Doesn't matter? The year we spent together, it mattered, 24/7.
Paul: That was the past. Let's talk about now. The last time that we talked, I told you that I still loved you, that I really believe we could be together, the way we always dreamt about. No secrets. No hiding. And you said no. But then you come to see me very, very late at my hotel room. Have you changed your mind? This is Jim.
Aiden: After Meredith died, I had to make a home for chase, help him get through about the worst thing that could happen to a kid, and Bree would not leave us alone. She shoved her way into our life any way she could, lying, making false statements to the police, just twisting and exaggerating things that happened. So I have chase who's barely hanging on by a thread, and then there's this neurotic, hate-filled woman who's determined to bring me down. I had no recourse but to get a restraining order and to start to put together a case for libel. I had to stop her for chase's sake. And I think I finally scared her, because the things she said were just so out there. They were so wrong that I might have won. I mean, libel suits are a tough, but I could have won that one.
Hope: Could have won? You didn't file the suit, did you?
Aiden: I didn't. I didn't file the suit because of chase. Look, he didn't need a father consumed with a court case. He didn't need his parent's personal life on Nancy grace. What he needed was for me to be there, making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, throwing the ball in the back yard. It's not easy for me to turn my back on a fight, but I did. And since I wasn't gonna fight back, I decided the best thing for us to do was to get out of Portland. And this woman, she won't give up. So while I don't want to go through with an actual lawsuit, I will do whatever it takes to stop her. She will not ruin my son's life with her lies.
Brady: We both know that when I say I need a drink, "a drink" means that I need a meeting, and I'm going to one at 11:00.
Maggie: Good, good. Do you want to talk now? Because, I mean, I can see you're upset about something.
Brady: Not upset, not upset. I'm a little frustrated. It seems no good deed goes unpunished these days. You know, you try to help someone out, you say, "excuse me, can I help?" And they-- it's nothing. It is nothing.
Maggie: Okay. Well, I have to go, and I can see that this isn't the right time. I mean, we can talk later if you want, but whatever "it" was, it wasn't "nothing."
Melanie: Where do you get off talking about Brady? You don't know him.
Theresa: I don't know him? I married him.
Melanie: Yeah, you married his money.
Melanie: And that whole thing was fake anyway, so it lasted, what, five minutes?
Melanie: You don't know who Brady is or who he could be.
Theresa: Oh, oh, right I don't know, 'cause he's not a drunk loser, he's a diamond in the rough, right?
Melanie: Wow, you're disgusting.
Theresa: And you're bipolar. Look, two minutes ago, you told him to leave the room, and now, you won't hear a word against him?
Melanie: Yeah, from you. So I'm gonna go, 'cause I think I might be sick.
Theresa: You're so dramatic. It's always a pleasure! Bitch. [Sighs] You know what, I could use some fresh air myself.
Clyde: I'm real glad you got a nice place to live in, Ben. And a nice girl like Abigail to share it with.
Ben: Me too. [Chuckles]
Clyde: You two are getting kind of serious, huh?
Ben: Well, I mean, I am crazy about her, but I think I just need to finish school first, and just get my life together.
Clyde: Yeah, you want to be worthy.
Ben: Yeah, I do. I just want her to know she's not making a mistake with me.
Clyde: Oh. I think she knows she's not. She's proud of you, son, just like I am.
Jordan: I believe you.
Jordan: And I'm sorry. It's just, when I heard that about Rafe--
Chad: You have no need to be sorry. I don't have a good history with Rafe, I understand. Okay, but there is something that I need to ask you.
Chad: Okay, it's just that you were upset, almost protective. D-do you still...you know, have--
Jordan: Chad, Rafe and I are over. It's just, you know, I still hated hated hearing that about him. You know, he's a good guy.
Chad: I know, and I like that you're loyal, okay? Put that on the never ending list of things that I adore about Jordan Ridgeway.
Chad: What's wrong?
Jordan: Well, now I'm worried about you. I heard Rafe say you've made things worse for yourself.
Chad: Loyal to me too. Don't worry, okay? I can handle myself.
Jordan: Right. Okay. Well, I need to get to the hospital. Abigail and I are meeting about our project.
Chad: Good. You worry about that, not me.
Chad: Okay? I have everything under control.
Will: You don't think the article's well written?
Kate: [Scoffs] Honey, it's beautifully written. I mean, you show what it takes for him to play baseball. I mean, you make that real. You make the reader feel how taxing it is physically and mentally, and then he has to get out of it all? Are you kidding me? I mean, that's great sports writing.
Kate: Well, you know how I felt about him his rookie year.
Will: He's a phenom.
Kate: Yeah, absolutely, but what really struck me about him is how well he was hiding his pitches. You know, in September, he was still fooling batters who had faced him all summer long. That kind of deception, it takes experience. And yet he started out that way.
Will: You're trying to tell me something.
Kate: Well, he gave you really good quotes. He answered all of your questions. It's a terrific article, and yet when I finished reading it, I didn't know him any better than when I started.
Will: I feel the same way.
Kate: Mm. You know what? I think you need to throw him a changeup.
Sonny: I shouldn't have come to your hotel, because... nothing's changed.
Paul: Sonny, if you're backing off because you thought I was with someone, I swear to you, it was nothing but business. Nothing happened.
Sonny: That's too bad. Because if you really care about someone else and you have feelings, then you should go for it. If you're really ready to be who you want to be and not give a damn what other people think, I think that's wonderful. You should be happy and proud about that. But I'm not the person who can share that with you.
Paul: Well, at least be honest with me. Tell me why you came to see me.
Sonny: I was gonna ask you for a loan. And I shouldn't have. It's--wasn't fair to you, and I don't need it now.
Paul: You sure?
Sonny: Yes, I'm sure. I'm sorry that's not what you wanted to hear.
Paul: It's okay. As always, you were honest.
Sonny: I got to go.
Paul: Sonny, there's still something wrong.
Sonny: No, everything's fine.
Paul: Okay, that wasn't honest, and you want to know how I know that? Because no matter what, I can tell when I look at you. We still have a connection.
Paul: If you ever change your mind.
Sonny: I have to get back to work.
Kate: He's the all-American success story, so why so cautious? What does he have to hide?
Will: Now, if I get the answer to that--
Kate: Mm-hmm, then you'd have one hell of a story. But unfortunately, you've finished your interviews, right?
Will: Actually, he left the door open for one more follow-up. Why wouldn't he? We'll just cover the same material and put the same spin on things. Well, I know what I've got to do.
Kate: And what's that?
Will: Well, it's just like you said. I've got to throw him a changeup and see if he offers.
Kate: [Laughs] Good luck.
Hope: I've only read two emails from the woman, and already, I want to do a lot more than threaten her. My favorite type: A vindictive woman who can't spell.
Aiden: Yeah, well, she did-- and apparently still does-- have an obsession with me.
Hope: Aiden, you extended an olive branch and she got even nastier.
Aiden: Yeah, when I got that last email from her, I just wanted to drag her into court, put her on the stand, and pull her apart, but--
Aiden: It's all so inflammatory, you know, the press would be all over it. Really, I couldn't see how I'd make her pay without my son ending up collateral damage.
Hope: I understand.
Aiden: I think you do. Maybe even more than I realized.
Aiden: I think you've been in the same kind of situation with someone you cared about, that you were trying to protect.
Hope: I really don't know what you're talking about.
Aiden: I'm talking about Rafe.
Mandrake: Yes, miss DiMera, finally. It is important. I have an update about our situation... with Theresa Donovan.
Theresa: No, it's just a dream, that's all.
Melanie: Okay, hi. Sorry, I'm sorry, I was out of line.
Melanie: I know you were just trying to help.
Brady: It won't happen again.
Melanie: Okay. I'm gonna go. You know what, actually, I want to talk to you about some--
Brady: I want to talk to you-- just wait--wait--
Melanie: Do you--
Brady: Just wait.
Melanie: Why did you want me to wait?
Ben: [Sighs] What--what did you want to talk to me about?
Melanie: Right, I-I want to talk to you about last night.
Brady: We already did.
Melanie: Yeah, more. I want to talk more about it.
Will: I'm sorry I didn't call first. I wanted to take you up on your offer for a follow-up.
Paul: Do you need another quote?
Will: No. I just want one more at bat. With psoriatic arthritis, I had intense joint pain that got worse and worse.
Paul: "Another at bat." You know, the pitcher and the batter are adversaries. I thought you said we're on the same side.
Will: You would want me to think that, wouldn't you?
Paul: Have I said something to upset you?
Will: No, never.
Paul: Did I not ever answer one of your questions, turn off your recorder?
Will: No. But I'm supposed to write a story about you, the real you, and you--you requested me specifically, but all you've done is just foul off my pitches.
Paul: [Laughs] Think you just mixed up your sports metaphor.
Will: See, that--that is exactly what I'm talking about. You--you don't ask me, what am I talking about? You don't tell me that I'm wrong. You talk about metaphors, you move away from the question. It's like it's already just an instinct for you. And you have this great technique and this masterful control, and you use it to make sure that no one gets even a glimpse inside that body made for baseball. Have you ever let someone see inside you. Ever?
Paul: You did, right in this room.
Will: I saw the pain that you felt when you learned that you couldn't play the game anymore, but you were never like that when we talked about people, feelings.
Paul: This is quite some follow up. [Laughs] Look, I know you're wishing that I was a little bit more interesting of a story, but I'm a pretty dull guy. I'm just simple. I'm just a kid who could--
Will: Throw a baseball? What you see is what you get?
Paul: You seem pretty mad.
Will: Mad, anger, yeah, let's talk about that. Have you ever been angry at anybody? Have you ever been frustrated, lonely? Have you ever lashed out at someone?
Paul: If you get angry, you lose control of the baseball.
Will: Do you remember when I asked you if you've ever been in love? You treated it like it was a yes or no question.
Paul: I think some things are private.
Will: Yes, I agree, and I stand by my promise not to write anything that you don't want in print.
Paul: Fine. You just asked a lot of questions.
Will: Just...pick one. Answer one, you choose.
Paul: Well, it's your article, you choose.
Will: And you'll answer honestly?
Will: Are you--
Paul: Am I what?
Will: Are you lonely? Do you ever get lonely?
Ben: So new year's eve. Great?
Sonny: Not exactly.
Chad: How long before you manage to clear off that table over there?
Ben: Oh, gee, boss, I don't know, I mean, I was thinking of waiting until the client came back out of the can and finished their cup of coffee, but I can get on that right now if you want me to.
Chad: I was just asking.
Ben: Right. By the way, great job on not coming in here so much. You're clearly a man of your word.
Sonny: I told you, Ben, if you have a problem with Chad being here, you can find yourself a new job.
Abigail: Yes, it looks like everything's in order.
Jordan: Okay, so how long do you think it'll take the board to approve it?
Kate: What makes you think the board is ever going to approve it?
Maggie: What are you afraid of?
Theresa: Well, Maggie, it's just so weird, I mean, I walk through this way all the time, but now... I keep having this weird dream, over and over, that I'm walking through here, and... now it even seems creepy in daylight. I-- I hate winter. Everything's dead. I'm sorry, way too much information, right? I mean, it's not like you even give a damn about me.
Theresa: No, I should go. I-I should-- look, it was great seeing you, but I should get back to work because your precious, little granddaughter, she needs something, and it's not a good idea to keep her waiting, so-- see you around.
Melanie: [Babbles] I want to not be awkward and stupid acting around-- I'm talking about when you and I--when--when we--when we--
Brady: When we k--when we kissed, m--
Melanie: Yeah, when that.
Brady: And that we kissed, and now things are-- things are weird between us right now, right?
Melanie: Yeah, I know. I know, and I don't know why. I've never not been able to talk to you about something, and vice ver--even when I was being stupid and counting cards and I got you beat up.
Brady: Even when I was acting like a moron...
Brady: When I was--had troubles with women and drugs and--
Melanie: Yes, and liquor.
Brady: Don't want to forget the liquor, yeah, I mean--
Melanie: Of course not.
Brady: That's--I think that-- I think that's why--I mean, we're both kind of idiots that way, and we--that's why we like each other so much. That's why we have a good time, and that's why everything is-- everything's always cool in the end for us, you know?
Melanie: Yeah, I know, but it's not cool right now.
Brady: It's not, no.
Melanie: Right, I mean-- [Scoffs] You're--you're--you're one of my best friends. You're--you're--I'm--you're my best friend, and I don't-- I don't want to ruin that.
Brady: Me neither, I don't want--I don't want to do that.
Melanie: Good. Okay, so then we're on the same page, we don't want to ruin our friendship.
Brady: Right. We're on the same--I don't want to do that.
Melanie: Good, okay, so why does it feel like more?
Kate: I have to admit, I have a few reservations about your little project.
Jordan: "Little project." The woman lives to condescend. You know, is it fun for you to try and screw up a project, the sole purpose of which is to help people in need?
Kate: Well, you know, the devil is in the details, and we are talking about a lot of money, and whoever donated that money, I'm sure they're going to want to make sure that it is spent wisely. They may not want people as incompetent and as inexperienced as you two doing it, so we'll just have to wait and see.
Kate: I have to say, Clyde, that was fun.
Jeremiah: So I just hope, since I took care of everything that you wanted me to take care of, well, that you know you can trust me, that you can... count on me.
Clyde: I do, Jeremiah, I do. That's why you're the first to know that we're about to embark on a new adventure in commerce. Trucking. A potentially very lucrative activity that is ripe for new blood in this town.
Clyde: But what, Jeremiah?
Jeremiah: 'Round here, trucking's controlled by Victor Kiriakis.
Clyde: That's right. That old man's had a lock on it for way too long. I think it's time he had a little competition, don't you, bubba? [Laughs] Yeah. We are moving in.
Sonny: Ben, I'm sorry. I've been on edge lately.
Ben: No, Sonny, you're right. I can't let insignificant things bother me.
Chad: Is everything okay?
Sonny: Yeah, everything's great, thanks to you.
Paul: I guess I do feel lonely sometimes.
Paul: Well, to be honest, nowadays, most of the time.
Will: It wasn't always like that?
Paul: No, not always.
Will: Why would a man like you have to feel lonely?
Paul: You say the problem with the article is, you haven't figured out who I am. And then you ask, "how can a man like me ever be lonely?" So what kind of man am I, will? The taste of light and fit Greek non fat yogurt
Aiden: Okay, listen--and as I am a lawyer and an officer of the court, just listen. I met with Rafe, I wanted to help him, but I got the feeling he knew more about the situation with Gabi than he was letting on, and that you were letting on when you referred him to me. Now, I don't need to hear anything more. All I want is for you to know. I understand what it is to keep secrets because you care about someone else.
Hope: I guess we are a lot more alike than I thought-- we thought.
Aiden: I think we are. Looking out for others is just one of the things I admire about you. That I like about you. That I love about you.
Mandrake: Yes, miss DiMera, we've gone over the test results, everything looks good. Everything is going according to plan. I've kept a close eye on miss Donovan. She's not a problem at all.
Theresa: So I have your damned form, Jonas. God, what the hell? People think I'm unprofessional. [Sighs]
Melanie: I feel like a jerk because you came and you gave me this present that was from Maggie, but I thought that it was from you because you brought it, and so now you think that I feel a way that you don't feel, and now this whole thing has become this complete mess.
Brady: Mel--please, you got to be quiet now, you need to shut--
Melanie: Right, right. No, I know, that's the problem. I keep thinking if I keep talking that I'm gonna make things better, but I'm not making anything better, I'm making things worse...
Brady: It's not gonna make it better.
Melanie: Because I came over here to come and fix the problems...
Brady: You have to listen.
Melanie: But now you think that I don't feel--
Brady: You don't get--you don't get it.
Brady: What I'm trying to say to you is, the way I think you are feeling, I think I'm--I'm feeling the same way too.
Chad: I don't know why anything is "thanks to me." You and will worked really hard for that money, and I feel terrible that you had to use it on the new club. But don't be too proud, Sonny. If you need a loan, you have my number. That beautiful little girl of yours shouldn't have to want for anything in this world.
Sonny: Well, thank you. But we're fine. Will's got a great job. This place is doing well. We'll build our money back up.
Chad: How is will's job going?
Sonny: Great, he loves it. And seeing how much time and effort he devoted to this last article, he better get something good out of it.
Will: What kind of man do I think you are? [Breathes deeply] Well, since I want you to answer my questions honestly, I'll answer yours. I think that you are a very complicated man. Not simple at all.
Paul: There are still some questions that you want to ask me, aren't there?
Paul: Questions that aren't on this list.
Paul: Go ahead, will. What's the big question?
Paul: Are you afraid to ask?
Will: No. No I-- are you gay?
Paul: Do you think I'm gay, Will?
Will: Yes. Yes, I do.
