Eric: Don't take this the come on, come on.
Serena: Yes, I did go over the experiment results, and they didn't prove anything like what you're saying.
Nicole: Come on, come on, come on, come on.
Serena: I can't go over this again. I'm in the middle of a meeting. Let's speak tomorrow.
Eric: Don't take this the wrong way, but I find it hard to believe that Nicole wants to play nice with Serena.
Daniel: Do you actually think she likes having everybody upset with her?
Eric: As long as we're focused on her, I'm not sure. Listen, I'm just saying. How do you know that Nicole doesn't have an ulterior motive?
Serena: Oh, my God.
Sonny: Ari's down for her nap.
Will: Okay, I'll call later, Sonny, but, um--
Sonny: Well, good luck with the story.
Will: Wait. Don't hang up. Sonny, we cannot keep avoiding each other like this.
Sonny: I'm not up for another lecture about losing our money.
Will: That's not what I want to talk about. Sonny, look--
[Knocking on door]
Sonny: I have to go. There's someone at the door.
Will: Grandma Kate.
Kate: Hi, honey. Oh, I am so glad you had time to meet. I've been dying to hear all about the story. So how did things go with Paul Narita? Honey, what happened?
Clyde: Enjoy your Fortune 500 life with your lovely Horton bride, and leave the rough business to me. You and DiMera fumbled the ball, and I grabbed it. Where's Victor?
Damon: He sent me, with a message.
Man: Honey, you know, we should bring the kids back to sled in a few hours.
Woman: They'll probably let school out early if it keeps up like this.
Man: Yeah, we're expecting at least a foot.
[Knocking on door]
Victor: Yeah--oh, Abigail. Maggie's not here.
Abigail: I'm here to see you, Victor. If you have a minute?
Victor: Why, yes, what can I do for you?
Abigail: I hate to ask, but, I need a big favor... for my boyfriend, Ben Rogers.
Daniel: Serena threw Nicole for a loop, she adjusted. But I don't think she's looking for trouble.
Eric: Daniel, that doesn't mean she won't find it.
Daniel: There is no malice here, Eric. Nicole made mistakes because she was afraid of losing you. She loved you. And part of her always will, I accept that. Do you?
Eric: What, after what Nicole did to me?
Daniel: Even after that. There is a connection. There must be, 'cause look how you're reacting right now.
Eric: You think I still love Nicole?
Daniel: Do you?
Serena: Nicole, what are you doing?
Nicole: I was just, uh, looking at-- okay, you know what, I'm sorry. I haven't been completely honest with you about why I'm here or about...my feelings for Eric. Introducing light & fit protein shakes,
Eric: I could never love Nicole again.
Daniel: I hope not.
Eric: But you do. You've fallen in love with her.
Daniel: All I want is for us to just let each other breathe. In fact, I think it'd be good if we just started over, and I believe that's what Nicole wants.
Eric: And I'd like to believe that, too.
Daniel: Okay. Just to be clear, I hope it doesn't get to this, but if I have to choose, I will choose Nicole.
Eric: And I would be sorry to lose you as a friend, and I want you to be happy.
Daniel: I will be.
Eric: That's what I thought when I chose Nicole, too. And I paid a steep price for that, Daniel! I'm not trashing her, I'm just telling you. I'm just telling you how it was. I don't want you to go through what I did.
Daniel: I can look out for myself.
Eric: Well, I hope you're right, and Nicole has finally learned a lesson. Because the only thing I do know was she disappointed me, and in the end she was never capable of being honest.
Serena: Why are you here?
Nicole: I know I said I've moved on, and...I have. But that doesn't mean I still don't care about Eric. I loved him, and a part of me always will, and I just want him to be happy, and for some reason he seems to think that's gonna happen with you, so I came here to put you on notice. You better not hurt Eric.
Serena: I thought you wanted to--
Nicole: Clear the air? Yes. I want us to at least be civil because we're gonna see each other all the time, and I think we hit on that before you took that call, so we'll just-- we'll just stay away from each other, and if we can't avoid it, we'll just think... "what would Eric do?" And everything will be fine. I am so glad we did this. Oh, thank you. Okay, bye. Now let's see what kind of dirt you're really hiding, red.
Eric: I hope Nicole... has learned a lesson and will treat you the way you deserve.
Daniel: Well, you don't really need to worry so much about me and Nicole. You can focus on your own life.
Eric: That's exactly what I want to do.
Daniel: Great. Take care.
Kate: Honey, what's going on? You just seem so sad, or-- I don't know, what?
Will: Just stressed. Just stressed out, you know. There's a lot going on.
Kate: Mm-hmm. With Sonny, right? Look, I know that the two of you took a bath on the failure of that night club. How much are you out?
Kate: No, no, no, no. I don't even need an exact figure.
Will: Grandma, I don't care-- I don't care about the money. Times, they're tight, but I'm not worried. Things are gonna be fine.
Kate: You're not worried, but Sonny is.
Will: Sonny feels so guilty, which is a joke, because compared to me...
Kate: What do you mean, "compared to you"? You have something to feel guilty about? Honey, what do you have to feel guilty about?
Ben: I know I put you in an awkward situation with Chad.
Sonny: We've had worse ones.
Ben: Well, look, man, if there's anything I can do to make it better for you, Sonny, say the word.
Sonny: Don't worry about me. I mean, you're the one probably going to court.
Sonny: Is it weird with Jordan? And Abigail? Man, you have too many connections with Chad.
Ben: Given that we hate each other, yeah. Still no excuse for what I did.
Sonny: No, but I saw the way he pushes your buttons.
Ben: And I know better.
Sonny: Well, what did he say to make you so angry? Something about Abigail?
Victor: Ben Rogers, do I know him? Wait, he works for Sonny over at TBD, doesn't he?
Abigail: He did, yes, but he had to leave that job recently, and I know that your new club is still staffing.
Victor: Well, I have a manager for that sort of thing.
Abigail: Yes, I know, and I would have gone to Rafe directly myself, but I was afraid that he and you might have a problem with Ben.
Victor: Why? And why did he have to leave Sonny's?
Abigail: It wasn't Sonny's idea at all--I mean, in fact, Sonny probably would have loved to keep Ben on. He actually invited him to manage his new club down on the south side--that's how much he trusts Ben and thinks he's a great employee.
Victor: Again, if he's so great, why did he get canned?
Abigail: He had a fight with Chad DiMera. It was kind of bad.
Victor: For who?
Abigail: Well, Chad had to go to the hospital, but he is fine, and I know Ben. He would never intend to hurt--
Victor: Quit while you're ahead, honey. Anybody who takes a swing at DiMera gets my sympathy.
Victor: And I'm sure Rafe feels the same way. But then you knew that. So why are you here?
Abigail: I didn't think the Chad thing would be a problem, honestly. I thought you might have a problem with Ben's dad, Clyde Weston.
Man: Did you bring the camera?
Man: Oh, that tree with the icicles.
Woman: Ooh, it's a great shot.
Will: Sonny's a saint, compared to me.
Kate: Okay, so what have you done that's so terrible?
Will: Everyone knows what I did, grandma. I went to Hollywood in the stupidest, dumbest way.
Kate: No, you went there to help your mother after her husband was murdered.
Will: I went there to write a screenplay, and I took Ari with me. I left Sonny all alone. I barely stayed in touch with him. And then, after I got washed out and I came back here, did I do what I could to make it right? No. I get another job and I get caught up in that. Sonny's club is going down, in flames. Am I there when he needs me the most? No.
Kate: Is that what Sonny says?
Will: He doesn't have to. I know what I did.
Sonny: What did Chad say?
Ben: Doesn't matter, does it? He ran his mouth. Just words, though. No reason for me to throw a punch.
Sonny: Or ten.
Sonny: Did Chad hit you back?
Ben: Barely. That's what's so stupid. I should have just seen it. He provoked me, and then he took it, so there'd be no question of who was in the wrong.
Sonny: Do you think he took that beating to try to land you behind bars?
Ben: He won't admit it, but--
Sonny: Do you need a lawyer? I can call my dad and get you a great recommendation.
Ben: No, thank you, but no. My dad's actually handling it.
Sonny: Is that okay with you?
Ben: Yeah. I mean, it's weird, but, he's been very supportive. I think he's been in my shoes. His temper's even worse than mine.
Abigail: I saw you and Mr. Weston at the club opening, and it didn't look too friendly.
Victor: That was my party face. Sit. I hardly know the man. Kate puts me in a foul mood, most days.
Abigail: Oh. Okay, well, then I guess there isn't a problem. So you'll give Ben a job? I'm sure Sonny's gonna give him a great reference.
Victor: Do I have to answer that right now?
Abigail: I know, um... I'm sorry, this is incredibly rude and forward of me. It's just Ben might have a hearing soon, and if he's unemployed, they might see that as a flight risk or--who knows? Victor, it's-- it's Chad on the other side.
Victor: Abigail, why are you here? Can't this guy speak for himself?
Abigail: Ben has no trouble speaking up for himself at all. He does have a hard time asking for favors. He has a lot of pride. Just letting his dad bail him out alone--
Victor: Excuse me.
Damon: It's done.
Victor: Good. You were saying?
Abigail: Yes. Ben has too much pride to ask for help. His father paid for his bail, and he would do anything he could for Ben, but I think that--
Victor: He doesn't want to rely that much on his father. Probably a good move.
Kate: So you've been neglectful, but you can make up for that.
Will: It's not that simple.
Kate: No, it is that simple. You love each other.
Will: That didn't stop me from what I did.
Kate: That didn't stop you? What are you talking about? Is there more here that-- what else have you done that you didn't tell me? Will. Will, you didn't.
Will: But I did. I love Sonny so much, I never meant to hurt him.
Kate: I know, I--I know you didn't.
Will: I love him, so much.
Kate: It was a mistake, everyone makes mistakes, okay? The important thing is to learn from that.
Will: It only happened once.
Kate: Shh, sweetie. Sweetie, it's okay. Okay?
Will: I can't believe--
Kate: Look, it happened, all right? So now the important thing is that it never happens again. All right? You love Sonny, you love the life that you have created with him for Ari. Right? Okay, focus on that.
Will: I will.
Will: Speak of the devil.
Will: Paul. Hi.
Paul: Hi. You want to finish the interview? I could be back at the hotel in, uh--
Will: No, no, not the hotel. Come to my office.
Paul: Okay, I'll be there in 20.
Will: See you there. Grandma, you were right. This is a big article. Biggest thing I've ever written.
Kate: Well, I did tell you to do anything you had to to get the story, right?
Will: No, that's not-- grandma, I love you, but I'm not a little kid. I made my own choices, my own mistakes, and not--not because I wanted to write a story.
Kate: Will, be careful.
Daniel: You look shocked.
Nicole: Well, I-- I just--I thought you were working.
Daniel: Mm-mm. No, Dr. Patel took the emergency, so I'm officially off for the night, so you, me, dinner, market street, one hour.
Nicole: What? How'd you get in that place? It's booked solid.
Daniel: No, no, I got peeps.
Daniel: And, with the start of the blizzard, someone cancelled, so let's go.
Nicole: Well, can we? I mean, it's really coming down out there.
Daniel: Look, I do have snow tires, chains, 4-wheel drive. We are golden! I am taking you on a real 4-star dinner date, uninterrupted, just the two of us, a real date. Got something better to do?
Serena: So, I was surprised too, but then Nicole came right over, and we kind of cleared the air, and then she left in a hurry, but--
Eric: That's great. Listen, I have a surprise for you. I pulled all the art from Africa out of storage, the pieces that you were talking about.
Eric: Yeah, I thought we could kinda go through it together. There's a lot of memories.
Serena: That is a trip I would love to take with you. Where's the stuff?
Eric: My place. Come on, let's go. All right, let me just shut down. That bitch.
Will: Thank you for meeting me here.
Paul: Oh, this was a better idea.
Will: So... you ready to do this?
Paul: No. I don't think I'll ever be ready, but it's time.
Will: Paul, if you're not ready--
Paul: It's the right thing.
Will: It has to be the right thing...for you.
Paul: It is, it's just-- look, if it were easy, I would have done it a long time ago. I should have. Was just so afraid of losing everything. Instead I ended up losing the only thing that really mattered to me.
Ben: I'll see you soon, man.
Kate: Ben, hi!
Ben: Hi, ms. Roberts.
Kate: Hey, your father told me about what happened to you. I am so sorry. My business partner can be a jerk sometimes.
Ben: Yeah, well. There's no law against that, unfortunately. Thanks, though.
Kate: Sure, take care!
Ben: See ya.
Sonny: See you later. Will is working, and Ari's sleeping.
Kate: Good! Because I want to talk to you.
Victor: So, how do you propose I give this guy a job if he won't apply for it? Of course I could always call Sonny and just keep your name out of it. I assume that was the next request.
Abigail: You're very perceptive.
Victor: I've had several women try and manage my life before.
Abigail: Actually, I'm going to tell Ben about this myself. I don't want there to be any secrets between us. In my experience, they've messed up everything. So, Ben will come by the club tomorrow first thing, and speak to Rafe, if that's all right with you?
Victor: He'll be expecting him.
Abigail: Oh, okay, great. Well, thank you, Victor.
Victor: Oh, it's my pleasure.
Eric: What's wrong?
Serena: Nicole stole my files and she's gonna try to use them against me.
Eric: Wait, what files? What can she use?
Serena: She didn't come over here to bury the hatchet. She came over here to bury the hatchet in my back.
Nicole: I...can't go.
Nicole: Well, uh... after you left, my producer called with a story, and I...
Daniel: Well, what story?
Nicole: Took it.
Daniel: What story?
Nicole: Mittens! You know, the tiger at the zoo? She had cubs.
Daniel: I thought she had cubs last spring.
Nicole: Second litter. I guess Mr. Mittens got a little busy.
Daniel: Oh, did he now? Well, can't someone else cover that story? I mean, it's kind of a fluff piece.
Nicole: No, actually, it's unusual--a second birth? So it's not just a human interest--or mammal interest-- story, but it's about climate change and ethics on animals being in a zoo at all--
Daniel: Okay, okay, all of those problems are still gonna be there tomorrow, right? Yeah, I want time with you. Real time.
Nicole: I know. I want the same.
Daniel: Then what's going on? What aren't you telling me?
Will: Tell me. What did you lose?
Paul: I lost the guy. The one I told you about. The once-in-a-lifetime person. He loved me, and I loved him. He just wanted us to be open. Honest.
Will: You wanted it to be kept a secret?
Paul: He asked me to marry him. He just wanted me to stand up and be who I was. I loved him so much. I was just too much of a coward to say yes.
Kate: Look, I know that you could go to Victor, but that's not going to be easy, either.
Kate: No, no, no, no--look. There's no way he would make it a loan, all right? And there'd be strings attached.
Sonny: You know uncle vic.
Kate: No strings here, okay? Now, I am figuring that you are probably on the hook for--
Sonny: Wait, how would you know what kind of money was involved?
Kate: I don't know. But I'm sure it wiped out whatever you and Will had saved.
Sonny: Yeah. Genius move on my part.
Kate: Would you stop that? No one's blaming you, especially not will. I just talked to will, and he's not. But it sucks to be broke, I know that. And I can help. If you don't know, now that I'm running DiMera, I'm filthy rich, so--
Sonny: I know, I know, but I need to handle this on my own.
Kate: Then do it. Take the loan. Every business has to do it. It's not a handout, Sonny. You need to take it, okay? Nothing, nothing is worth jeopardizing the life that you have built with Ari and will.
Daniel: All right, come on. That whole tiger cub story is lame. What is really going on?
Nicole: I need to do this story! I told you, miles is hard on me, okay? And he will take all the interesting assignments from me if I don't make this one look good.
Daniel: Okay, okay. Well... I can't help you with that whole fate-of-the-world tiger cub thing, but if you need a nice, fluffy, feel-good piece, I will make one call, and you will be feeding that little cub yourself, on camera, tomorrow. Tomorrow.
Nicole: Okay, that sounds really great, but the story has to be in tonight.
Daniel: No, no, Parker comes home tomorrow, Melanie is out, it has to be tonight. Fine. You know, forget it. You do what you gotta do.
Nicole: Wait, Daniel, Daniel--wait, wait, wait, wait.
Nicole: No, no, no, don't be upset with me.
Daniel: Good night, Nicole.
Nicole: No--okay, okay. You're right. Okay, this story can wait until tomorrow. It can, if... miles is upset with me, then so be it. Because nothing is more important to me than you. I'm sorry I was such a jerk. Do you forgive me?
Daniel: Oh, now, I'm getting there. Get your stuff.
Nicole: I'll get my purse.
Serena: There. Check the last dates and times.
Eric: It was all accessed at the same time.
Serena: And they were copied.
Eric: While you were on the phone.
Serena: She probably planned that phone call as a diversion.
Eric: You said it was from the national institutes of health.
Serena: It was, but it still could have been a setup. Nicole wanted me out of the way so she could access my computer. Her excuse was that she wanted to come over and make peace. I mean, she made a big deal out of that, and that-- she comes over here--she was probably laying the trap the whole time! And she keeps talking and talking, and then two minutes later, I get a phone call. Soon as I come back out, she's hovering, clutching a picture of you, babbling on and on and then trying to rush out the door.
Eric: That sounds like Nicole.
Serena: I can't believe that went through my pers-- my private files.
Eric: Listen, she can't even understand any of your research, but is there anything else on there that can hurt you?
Serena: No, it's just... the idea of-- sick and twisted woman.
Eric: You know what, don't worry, I'm gonna handle this. Yes, Nicole walker, please. Do you know where she went? Ok.
Nicole: Ooh, honey! This is so sudden.
Daniel: Okay, down, down, down girl.
Nicole: Oh ho.
Nicole: We can get snowed in together.
Daniel: No, no, no, later. We can get snowed in later. First, dinner date. Now I'm gonna put something nice on, and then we are outta here.
Nicole: Oh, do you think I'll be okay in this?
Daniel: Mm, you are just perfect, okay? Ten minutes. Ten.
Nicole: Okay. [Sighs] What the hell am I doing? I should dump this. I mean, Daniel is nuts about me. You know what? Eric can take care of himself. You know what, if he wants to put his trust into Serena, so be it. It's not my job to set him straight.
Will: Paul. Listen to me. You potentially had a lot to lose by coming out. I don't know when this was, but even five years ago, things could have been a lot different. Your fans, your management, your teammates. You didn't know how they would react. And you loved what you were doing so much.
Paul: I did. I love the game, I loved the fame, I loved standing alone on the mound in front of 60,000 people yelling my name. Or booing. I didn't care, as long as they were talking about me. The "me" they knew. But now they won't be anyway. I traded the love of my life for a career that's over before I even turn 30.
Will: Are you saying that if you could go back and do it all again, you'd say yes to the man that asked you to marry him?
Paul: In a heartbeat.
Sonny: So how would I be risking my marriage if I didn't take the loan?
Kate: Honey, you're all stressed out, you're worried about money, you're working crazy hours.
Sonny: Will's the one who can't seem to come home early.
Kate: Okay. So, you're both busy, right? You know you're not spending enough time together, and you need to be spending that time together, especially since will was away for so long in L.A. Sonny, you need to make sure that both of you feel loved. Every day.
Sonny: And by taking your money, that would-- that would happen.
Kate: Well, it would give you some time, it would give you space.
Sonny: I'll think about it.
Kate: [Sighs] Thank you. Okay. So, when is that baby gonna get up?
Sonny: Um, well, should be getting up pretty soon. Actually, would you mind watching her for a little bit? I have an errand to run that I definitely think you'll approve of.
Kate: Sure, go!
Sonny: Thank you.
Abigail: Hey. How'd it go with Sonny?
Ben: He was great. He'll definitely give me a reference.
Abigail: Well, um, you don't need one, because you already have a new job.
Abigail: Yeah, I... I spoke to Victor about hiring you at the new place.
Ben: You did what?
Damon: No witnesses. I'm sure of that. We were alone, and nobody saw me on my way out of the park.
Victor: So you left the body?
Damon: I had to. There were some people out for a walk. If I'd stayed any longer they might've found me.
Victor: You don't suppose that they could have stumbled across Weston?
Damon: I don't think so. He was hidden in the bushes, and the snow was coming down hard. By the time I left, he was almost completely covered. If he isn't found in the next hour or two--
Victor: He'll be a Clydesicle until the spring thaw.
Damon: It's possible. We could get the body found. I could arrange an anonymous tip.
Victor: No, let him rot.
Abigail: Wait--wait, wait a minute, Ben, okay? Before you get all crazy on me, let me just remind you, that you tried to get me a job at the hospital when I was fired.
Ben: Okay, that's different.
Abigail: Why? Different how? Because I didn't mess up, and I shouldn't have taken full responsibility for my actions?
Ben: Abigail, I don't want any favors.
Abigail: Okay great, 'cause you're not getting any. Look, Victor considers it a public service that you punched Chad, okay? And we were wrong about him. He has no problem with your father. That's actually why I went. So he's just gonna talk to Sonny, and then you're in. Please don't be mad at me, Ben. Are you?
Ben: No. Look, it was very nice of you to look after me. I appreciate it. I'm just--I'm really surprised about Clyde and Victor.
Abigail: Yeah, I know. It was really bad the other night, but... you know, some of that, it's just Victor. He looks like a curmudgeon most of the time, but he's really just an old softie.
Victor: Three shots, center mass, you're sure?
Damon: Saw the bullets hit, and it's clean, Mr. K. Gun is destroyed, nothing on Clyde's body to link him to any of us.
Victor: Phone that I used to set up the meet. It's a burner, untraceable.
Damon: I'll trash it. Anything else?
Victor: No, that's everything.
Damon: You saved a lot of people today, Mr. K. Kids who don't need that garbage in their neighborhood, not to mention your crew need their old jobs back. Should I start making the rounds at the docks?
Victor: No, no, not yet. Things will fall apart soon enough without Clyde there. Then we'll move in.
Kate: [Sighs] Clyde, hi. I'm babysitting with Ari for a little while but, um, I should be free later if you want to meet. Call me.
Will: You can't say that, Paul. You can't second guess your life.
Paul: That's all I've done since we started this article.
Will: You don't know how it would have gone.
Paul: I made a big mistake.
Paul: You don't know that, Paul. All you can focus on is what happens now. Trust me. When you come out, it'll be like your life began all over again. And if what you want is a relationship, you will meet the right man.
Paul: What if I already met the right guy and I blew it?
Will: If he really was the right guy, if it was really meant to be, well then, who knows? Maybe he'll come back. Maybe you'll get a second chance.
Nicole: Wow. You clean up well. I am one lucky woman.
Daniel: Yeah, you are.
Nicole: [Laughs] How about you, how lucky are you?
Daniel: Ah, kinda goes without saying, really.
Nicole: Well, keep saying it. Out loud and often, please.
Daniel: I am one lucky guy. Come on.
Serena: You lying, stealing bitch!
