Jennifer: Are you okay?
Melanie: What do you want?
Nicole: I was just wondering how your dad was doing.
Nicole: Oh, uh, I... thought you would have heard.
Melanie: Heard what, Nicole?
Serena: I know it's taken longer than it's supposed to. But at least now I have confirmation that Eric still has it. Of course, yes. I know what I have to do. And it's almost over.
Damon: I checked all the local hospitals. No DOA John Does. And Clyde's people are starting to get antsy because no one's heard from him. They don't know what their next move is supposed to be.
Victor: 'Course they don't, 'cause the next move is ours.
Paul: Mother, please don't be disappointed in me.
Tori: I could never be.
Paul: But you could. And you probably will be when you hear this. But you need to know who I am. You see, I, uh-- mother, I'm, uh-- I'm gay. Mom, please. Say something.
Derrick: Bet you're having a good time right about now.
Sonny: What did you just say?
Derrick: Right this second, this dude is exactly where you or I would like to be.
Jennifer: I know that I'm not supposed to do this, but I can tell when you're upset about something.
Daniel: I'm gonna be all right, I'm fine.
Jennifer: I'm sure you're gonna be all right. You helped me a lot by talking to JJ.
Daniel: I don't know if I got very far with him.
Jennifer: Well, I'm grateful to you for trying. Because he definitely needs someone other than his mother to talk about things that are bothering him, and when you said you could be that person, that meant a lot to me.
Daniel: I'm happy to do it.
Jennifer: So, maybe, I could be that sounding board for you.
Jennifer: Oh, no, don't you get mad at me for pressing.
Daniel: Oh, I'm not, I'm not. It may help to talk it out a little bit.
Jennifer: Okay. So tell me, what did Nicole do now?
Melanie: Same day, different screw up? Let me guess, you hurt Eric and my dad. Am I warm?
Serena: They're identical. Which stands to reason, because Eric and I bought them at the same marketplace, from a row that had basically identical carvings, so I'll switch them. He won't know. And then it'll be done.
Paul: Mom, talk to me, please.
Tori: Paul, I-- I don't--what am I supposed to say?
Paul: I didn't want to do this over the phone. I wanted to tell you in person. That's why I asked you to come to Salem, so I could. But you needed to know this, before the whole world does.
Tori: Meaning what, exactly?
Paul: I did a magazine interview.
Tori: About this?
Paul: About the end of my career. And then... I talked about what it was like being a professional baseball player... living in the closet. I didn't want to keep who I was a secret anymore. Mom.
Tori: Paul, dear god, how can you do this to your grandfather?
Sonny: I don't understand. Like what--who?
Derrick: I just saw this guy, before. Thought maybe you did too, since you were there.
Derrick: In Paul Narita's hotel room.
Nicole: Look... Melanie, this is not my fault.
Melanie: Of course not, Nicole, it never is.
Nicole: I wasn't looking for trouble.
Melanie: So it--it just found you.
Nicole: Well, this crazy guy--I mean literally, this crazy guy gave me information on Serena. I'm a journalist, right? I am duty-bound to investigate a story when it's handed to me.
Melanie: Mm-hm. That's so funny, because, any time somebody mentions your name, the first thing that I think is "that Nicole, she's nothing if not full of integrity."
Nicole: Turns out the informant's information on Serena was wrong. He has a history of mental illness.
Melanie: Bad luck.
Nicole: I was victimized by this guy!
Melanie: Okay, let's say for one second that story is true.
Nicole: Thank you.
Melanie: No. If it's true, why are Eric and my dad mad at you?
Melanie: Here it comes.
Nicole: I may have cut some corners.
Melanie: Okay, say no more.
Nicole: I have a lot more to say, actually--
Melanie: I don't care. Nicole, you trolled my friend, you told lies about her, you did whatever shady thing you had to do to get your point across. And at the end of the day, you ended up looking like a fool because Serena was innocent of whatever it is you were trying to pin on her. Does that sound right?
Nicole: I was just trying to protect Eric.
Melanie: He doesn't want anything to do with you. But you're still obsessed with Eric, and my dad, poor, unsuspecting man that he is, finally figured that out?
Nicole: No, what he "figured out" is all wrong.
Melanie: Wow. You know, my dad was a wreck last night and now I know why.
Nicole: He was a wreck? Really?
Melanie: Yeah. You broke his heart.
Serena: I've come up with a dozen excuses since I got to Salem to go back to Eric's place just too look around. And when I finally found the original in his bedroom... let's just say I haven't had the chance to get things done yet. No, he doesn't suspect anything.
[Knock at door]
Serena: Gotta go. Eric, hi. I was just thinking about you.
Eric: I've been thinking about you, too. I've come to a decision. About us.
Adrienne: I thought will would be here by now.
Lucas: Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to suffer through some time with my granddaughter.
Adrienne: I hate to break it to you...
Lucas: She's sleeping again?
Lucas: Every time I come over, that baby's sleeping. It kills me. What? Now I get to go look at her for a couple of minutes? Just stare at her while she lays there?
Adrienne: Of course, if you like.
Lucas: I'll do that.
Adrienne: How about I make us some hot chocolate?
Lucas: Oh, that sounds good. Thank you.
Lucas: This night gets better and better.
Lucas: Or, you know, we could play another round of cribbage if you want. Give me a chance to win back that five bucks you stole from me last time.
Lucas: Yes, ma'am.
Adrienne: Oh, my god. You're on.
Lucas: Deal. I'll be right back.
Lucas: Keep your voice down.
Victor: I want you to check and see if Clyde's drug trade is starting to collapse because he's not there to call the shots. Then I want him backed out of all the neighborhoods he's expanded into. Get it back under control.
Victor: Yes? [Laughs] It is a pleasant surprise, yes. Oh, I didn't know that. Thank you for letting me know.
Damon: That about Clyde?
Victor: No, it's about my nephew, Sonny. I have to talk to him right away.
Paul: I wanted grandpa to know too, mom. That's why I asked you both to come to Salem.
Tori: Why did he have to hear about this at all? He's an old man, Paul. Couldn't you have just kept this a secret until he was gone?
Paul: No. Because this is who I am. And it's the truth.
Tori: Some truths don't have to be broadcast to the universe.
Paul: This does. You know, someone I know told me that this could help a lot of young kids who are ashamed of who they are. Who are afraid to come out to there families. Wouldn't that be a good thing? If I could help people? If my life was about more than just my E.R.A. And my arm? I mean, mom, I have to tell you, if I had known one baseball player, one openly gay player, someone I rooted for, someone I looked up to as a player, as a man, then maybe I wouldn't have had to struggle with this so much. Maybe I wouldn't have lived in constant fear of being outed. Maybe I wouldn't have felt so damned alone! And it probably would have helped me be brave. Brave enough to be honest with you about who I really am a whole lot sooner.
Tori: Seriously, Paul. Do you think that I didn't already know?
Derrick: I'm telling you. I saw this guy. And it's not the first time.
Sonny: Not the first time what?
Derrick: That he's been in Narita's room. Sorry, dude. This will Horton character has beaten you to the punch more than once that I know of. Like, new year's eve, for instance. Remember when you came by to see Paul and I told you that he already had a friend in the room?
Sonny: You're leaving?
Will: I'm sorry. But if I don't go and do this, I'll lose the assignment.
Sonny: Oh, my god.
Derrick: And that time that I let you into his room and Paul was in his bathrobe. You remember that, for sure.
Paul: Sonny, I--
Sonny: No, you don't have to explain yourself. Someone was in the shower.
Derrick: He was. Will Horton is Paul Narita's lover.
Daniel: You know, I appreciate a lack of "I told you so."
Jennifer: That is not my style.
Daniel: No, not at all.
Jennifer: But seriously, I really wish that Nicole had changed for the two of you.
Daniel: Even after she played a part in our breakup?
Jennifer: Oh, come on. There's plenty of blame to go around.
Daniel: All the way around--
Jennifer: All the way around.
Daniel: And back I think.
Jennifer: We just, um, we just weren't meant to be together. At least not romantically because I think, as friends, I think we're good friends.
Daniel: Like, forever?
Jennifer: We could be best friends.
Daniel: Like, friends for life?
Daniel: All right, put it there.
Jennifer: Pinky swear?
Nicole: You are way off base.
Melanie: Doubt it.
Nicole: I am not obsessed with Eric. I want to be with your father. You could talk to him.
Nicole: You could help me with your father.
Melanie: Have you lost your mind?
Nicole: Well, I helped you. I got those casino people off your back. Don't you think you owe me one?
Melanie: Yeah, and I paid you back, Nicole, when I didn't tell anybody that you broke into Serena's hotel room in December.
Nicole: Look, Melanie, I've learned my lesson. And if your dad could just see that and not be so angry with me--
Melanie: You're incredible.
Nicole: I deserve another chance.
Melanie: No, Nicole, you don't. You've run out of chances. And thank god because my dad deserves so much better than that.
Eric: I think, in order for you to feel safer in a relationship with me, you need a deeper, a deeper commitment.
Eric: Well, than where we've been so far. I mean, I'm still getting used to my new life.
Serena: You were a priest for a long time.
Eric: And reluctant to get involved with anyone again. The thing with Nicole--
Serena: I understand.
Eric: What I didn't want with us was something... like a fling. I mean, we've known each other for such a long time. But we've had a lot of time off in between.
Serena: And now?
Eric: Now I want to be in a committed relationship with you. I don't want to date.
Serena: You're saying all the right words.
Eric: Well, maybe I've said enough.
Paul: You already knew I was gay?
Tori: Yes. I've known for a while.
Paul: And you never said a word?
Tori: It wasn't my place.
Paul: I just said it to you out loud and you got totally silent, like it was news.
Tori: I was silent because I don't understand why you're doing this now, Paul.
Paul: Mom, all of this time... I mean, you could have told me that I had your support. Even I if I wasn't ready to come out publicly, if I would've known that you were okay with it... oh, that's it then. You're not okay with it. What? Did you think that it was just gonna go away?
Tori: I was just worried about your grandfather.
Paul: Put ojichan on the phone.
Tori: I don't think that's a good idea.
Paul: Put my grandfather on the phone right now!
Tori: [Speaking Japanese]
Ojichan: [Speaking Japanese] Hello?
Paul: Grandfather, there's something I must tell you...
Derrick: This Narita and this will Horton character... but since you and I both struck out with the pitcher, maybe we could, you know, get a drink, see what--
Sonny: You said you just saw this guy at Paul's hotel?
Derrick: Yeah, were you not listening?
Sonny: Tell me again. You saw this guy.
Derrick: He was at Paul's. He got there right after you did. He spends a lot of time up there with him in that room.
Sonny: Cover for me. I got to go.
Derrick: Sonny, do not go over there and do not tell Paul I told you. All your life you're told to tame your curls...
Serena: I gave you an ultimatum. So if you're doing this for the wrong reasons...
Eric: I was worried about rushing this for both of us. But I want to be with you. I think the timing is finally right. Listen, if you're free tonight, maybe we can do something special. Make a night out of it. The whole night.
Serena: I'd love that.
Eric: Okay, great. I want you to meet me at my place in a couple of hours.
Serena: Okay. Okay. Oh, my god. This is so perfect.
[Knock at door]
Adrienne: I'm really glad I ran into you.
Lucas: Well, of course you are, so you could rob me blind. Thanks, Adrienne.
Adrienne: Well, all have our talents now, don't we?
Adrienne: Justin would always say... would you like some more hot chocolate?
Lucas: Adrienne, come on.
Sonny: Why do you have a cane?
Victor: Oh, my back is acting up. Listen, I was just coming to find you. We need to talk.
Sonny: I can't talk right now, I have no time.
Victor: Well, make time. This is important.
Paul: [Speaking Japanese] I'm sorry I didn't tell you before. I hope you're not upset.
Ojichan: [Speaking Japanese] I am not upset. I am proud. You are a brave young man. I will always love you.
Paul: [Speaking Japanese] You have no idea how much that means to me. I should go. I'll call you and Mom tomorrow. Sayonara, Ojichan.
Tori: [Speaking Japanese]
Paul: [Sobbing joyfully] He said he was proud of me.
Serena: Yes, tonight. I can switch the statues tonight for sure. When it's done you'll be the first to know.
[Knock at door]
Serena: Mel, hi.
Melanie: Hi. I heard about what Nicole did, I'm so sorry.
Melanie: Are you okay?
Serena: Yeah, I'm fine. And don't be sorry. She kind of, actually, did me a favor, in a way.
Melanie: How did Nicole manage to do that?
Serena: Eric and I are closer than ever.
Melanie: Really? Okay, well, that's good. Silver lining, then.
Serena: Yeah, but the one who's really gonna need your support is your dad.
Melanie: Yeah, I know. He was a wreck when I saw him last night but I didn't know why until now.
Serena: You talked to him?
Melanie: No, I talked to Nicole. And you wouldn't believe that conversation if I told you. She actually wanted me to smooth things with her and my dad. So the poor guy falls for her again, and she slays him again, but she wants him to forgive her again because she's certifiable. And I don't understand why you would do that to somebody that you love.
Serena: Sometimes you don't mean to hurt the people you love. But you do anyway.
Melanie: Are you defending her?
Serena: No, no. It's just--look, I got Eric. Now Nicole's got no one. I don't see any reason to kick her while she's down.
Melanie: You have the biggest heart of anybody I know. Sometimes I think you're just too good to be true.
Daniel: Nicole, I am not in the mood for your drama.
Nicole: Okay, just hear me out, Daniel, please.
Daniel: No, did I not just say--
Nicole: No, I know I made a mistake, okay? I shouldn't have gone after Serena. But I didn't do it because I'm still in love with Eric, and that is the truth. You have to believe me.
Daniel: I don't.
Nicole: Daniel, please.
Daniel: How many times can I go to the well with you Nicole? How many times can I overlook all the lies, the half-truths, the rest of it? I can't. I can't do it anymore.
Nicole: Daniel, this can't be--this can't be it. Please, you have to give me another chance to prove to you what is in my heart.
Daniel: I don't think you know what's in your heart, Nicole. But I sure as hell hope you figure it out. Because what you did to Eric and to me... I'm done. I don't want to be a part of it anymore.
Nicole: You're wrong about me, you know. I do know what's in my heart. Who is in my heart. And that's you. [Sobbing]
Lucas: Any word from Justin? You don't have any idea when he might come back from Dubai?
Adrienne: Maybe never. Who knows.
Lucas: Come on, don't say that, that's can't be true.
Adrienne: Well, if you saw the hot law partner on the case that he's handling there, you might think differently. She's a knockout and she's brilliant.
Lucas: Don't do that to yourself. Come on, don't even let your mind go there like that.
Adrienne: Well, yeah, I'll get right on that.
Lucas: Adrienne, he loves you.
Adrienne: He did. I mean, he still may. But just... before we were married, he wasn't exactly monogamous.
Lucas: Well, so what? That doesn't matter. That doesn't mean anything. It doesn't. I'm telling you, whoever he was in the past, that's just, you know, that's who he used to be. It's like another lifetime ago for him, I'm sure.
Adrienne: Now he's 7,000 miles away in Dubai and I hardly ever hear from him. I mean, seriously, he's never even asked me to come there and visit. And I barely even get an email from him once a week.
Lucas: Then he's insanely busy. With the case, Adrienne. The case.
Adrienne: You know why I'm so good at cribbage all of a sudden? Because I have nothing better to do with my time than just sit around and wait for my husband to decide what he's thinking about our marriage. And our future. And it's driving me out of my mind.
Will: From what I heard, your mom didn't take the news so well.
Paul: Because she was worried about my grandfather.
Will: She said she already knew that you were gay?
Paul: She's known for a while, apparently. Which I had absolutely no idea. I mean, I thought I was so careful. I had such a cover story.
Will: My mom will tell you that a mother always knows. Which is funny, because she had no idea.
Paul: Didn't you tell me she didn't take it well?
Will: At first. But then when she got over it, she was like a mother lion. So maybe your mom will change too. Give her time.
Paul: Well, having this article come out isn't going to help.
Will: Do you still want to go through with it?
Sonny: Damn it, uncle Vic! Don't you ever listen to me? I said I can't talk right now. I don't have time.
Victor: I know why you're upset.
Sonny: You don't know why I'm upset.
Victor: It's because of the new club.
Sonny: Oh, my god.
Victor: I had no idea that the edge of the square was gonna cut into your profits the way it did. Believe me, it was never my intention.
Sonny: I don't care about how much money your club is making. I don't care how badly my club is tanking. I don't care about any of it. I don't care about you and your freaking greed.
Victor: Watch your mouth.
Sonny: How many times do I have to tell you that don't care.
Victor: You say that like it's some badge of honor. For god's sake, Sonny, maybe if you did care, you wouldn't be in the mess you're in now.
Sonny: You just don't understand.
Victor: Of course I do. You've dug yourself into a financial hole. You have a family to support.
Sonny: The mess I'm in right now has nothing to do with money.
Jennifer: Nicole, I just--
Nicole: I don't--please, I don't want, or need, a lecture from you.
Jennifer: Okay, I don't want to lecture you. I just want to be here if you need someone to talk to or want to talk to.
Nicole: You know?
Jennifer: Yeah. I ran into Daniel at the hospital.
Nicole: Well, he must have loved to dump on you about me, and you must've loved to make a move back.
Jennifer: No, he didn't dump on me about you. And Daniel and I are friends. Now and forever.
Nicole: Well, you've got a leg up. 'Cause I don't think he ever wants to lay eyes on me again. If he could possibly manage that. Do you think I'll ever be able to fix this?
Jennifer: I don't know. But at the very least, you have to be over Eric and you have to mean it.
[Knock at door]
Eric: Coming. Hey. You're early.
Serena: Yeah, well, I thought I'd try something new and not be late and risk screwing up our night. I don't seem too eager, do I? Which translates to desperate?
Eric: No, not at all. Well, I'm ready. You want to get going? I scored a good reservation for us tonight.
Serena: Great! Where?
Eric: At the green mountain lodge.
Serena: That's not in town.
Eric: No. Which is why I also got us a room for the night.
Serena: No, we can't do that.
Paul: No. I'm not backing out now. And once I spoke with my grandfather, I felt even more sure about what I'm doing.
Will: I'm glad. Finish reading it. I can make my deadline and get it to my editor tonight.
Paul: Thank you, will.
Will: For what?
Paul: For pushing me to do this.
Will: The article?
Paul: Coming out in the article. Once I decided to do it, I had to talk to my grandfather. If I never made that decision, I never would've had that conversation with him.
Will: I'm very happy about that.
Paul: You know, my entire life, my grandfather told me he was proud of me. In school, in my career. But when he said it to me tonight... that was better than all those other times combined. I'd better start reading this.
Will: I'll give you some space. And in the meantime, I need to check in with someone.
Victor: What is it Sonny? I've never seen you so upset.
Sonny: It just doesn't matter. It's not about you and it's not about the clubs, it's private.
Victor: Is it will?
Sonny: I can't talk about this with you. I just--I have to go. I have to go.
Victor: Sonny, don't cut me out, I want to help you here.
Sonny: Trust me, uncle Vic, there is absolutely nothing you can do for me.
Victor: Sonny, wait.
Victor: Yes, what is it, Damon?
Daniel: All right, look, honey, it's not all her fault. I wanted to believe something about her and I should have known better. But that's all done now.
Melanie: Well, I'm sorry, dad.
Daniel: Nicole is out of my life and it's over.
Nicole: I am trying to convince Daniel that it is over with Eric but he's not buying it and I know no one believes me, but I was just trying to protect Eric.
Jennifer: But you don't need to do that. Serena is not the monster that you think she is and Eric does not need your protection.
Eric: Wow. I was just trying to be romantic. You know, the snow, snuggling under a blanket in front of the fireplace.
Serena: It's--it's too much.
Eric: Too much what?
Serena: Too much trouble. I am perfectly happy staying right here at your place.
Eric: Serena, this is going to be the first time in a long time that we're gonna be together that way. I just wanted it to be special.
Serena: This--this is special. Right here. There's absolutely no reason for us to leave.
Eric: Okay, what's going on? I mean why are you so adamant about staying in my place?
Lucas: If Justin doesn't appreciate you, that's on him.
Adrienne: [Chuckles] Have I mentioned the hot attorney he's working with all day and night?
Lucas: She can't be as hot as you are. Or as sexy as you are, that's for sure.
Adrienne: [Laughs] God, sexy. God, I haven't-- I haven't thought of myself as sexy in a long time.
Lucas: What are you talking about? You just swindled me out of my money, that's sexy as hell. I mean, I do, I like a woman who challenges me.
Adrienne: Thank you for saying that. Even though you don't mean it. [Laughs]
Lucas: I completely mean it.
Paul: Are you texting your boyfriend over there? Will, if you need to go...
Will: No, it's fine. He understands why I'm so busy.
Sonny: "Can you make sure your mom is okay with Arianna? I'm running late." Yeah, I bet you are.
Victor: I hope you have some good news for me.
Damon: You know, I did some checking. It won't be easy, but I think we can cut back the drug business where Clyde moved in.
Victor: Excellent. It'll be as if Clyde Weston never existed.
Sonny: I have to get to that hotel. Oh, what the-- [Groans in pain]
