Kate: You son of a bitch. You set me up. He set me up!
Stefano: How did I force you to make this blunder?
Kate: You used Victor to play me.
Stefano: [Chuckles] Victor Kiriakis?
You were in contact with... taking cues from a sworn enemy of this company?
Gordon: Is this true?
Stefano: Tell us, Katerina... were you conspiring with Victor? [Chuckles]
Cole: So, for tonight, I made a reservation... at a restaurant.
Cole: After that, we can go to a movie or a club if you want to hear some music.
JJ: [Playing guitar]
Paige: Oh, no.
Paige: I just realized...
Eve: That was a beautiful piece.
JJ: Paige isn't here.
Eve: I know. I'm here for you. We have some unfinished business.
Abe: You know, there's still a stay on Stefano's warrant. We have no probable cause to be here. This is right on the line.
Hope: Abe, DA Trask is in court right now as we speak, and you know she's on a mission. She'll get the stay vacated, and the second she does, we arrest Stefano... before he has a chance to run again.
Abe: Well, obviously he's not here.
Hope: Hmm, neither is Chad. That overpriced sports car he drives isn't here.
Abe: Want to bet they're together?
Hope: Probably. We need to find some evidence to where they could be. Looky here. What have we got?
Harold: What are you two doing in here?
Melanie: Hey, Brady. Good news-- Carla came in, and she's going to take the rest of her shift, so I'm able to go, if you want to hang out when you're done with your job. We can have a quiet night together, and I will see you soon.
Theresa: [Chuckles] That sounds thrilling.
Melanie: Excuse me?
Theresa: You know, I am sure Brady will just drop dead with excitement when he gets that message.
Brady: [Exhales deeply] Mm.
Cole: What is it? Did you realize you have other plans tonight?
Paige: Uh, no, it has nothing to do with our date. This should just take a second.
JJ: No, eve, we don't... 'cause everything between us is completely finished.
Eve: I'm not talking about us, you idiot. I'm talking about Paige.
JJ: Well, there's nothing else to say about Paige either, 'cause I'm going to get her back, and there's nothing that you can do to stop me.
Eve: JJ, please, if you'd just listen to me, you'd see--
JJ: No, I'm done listening to you. Get the hell out.
Kate: I didn't conspire with Victor. Victor called me to let me know that Stefano was going to try to steer me away from Glendora tech, the implication being that Stefano wanted the company for himself.
Stefano: I spoke to Victor?
Kate: You must have.
Unless, perhaps, Mr. Kiriakis wanted to manipulate you. You two have a long-standing relationship, do you not?
Kate: I resent the implication that I would ever--
Gordon: Kate! You bought shin's company. If you did that because you relied on Victor Kiriakis--
Kate: It's a great company, and it was a smart buy.
Stefano: [Chuckles] I doubt Mr. Shin would share that view.
Gordon: Stefano's right. This is a mess.
Kate: I agree.
Valdez: You're not an innocent bystander. You did it.
What kind of due diligence did you perform in the matter of this critical acquisition?
Kate: Time was of the essence, so we ran an expedited check.
Gordon: Which obviously missed the most important facts.
I've just gotten an email from a source close to shin. He's describing this purchase as a hostile takeover.
Valdez: Good god.
He's threatening to leave the board.
Gordon: This isn't even our biggest problem. Ms. Roberts has purchased the company of a sitting board member-- a clear conflict of interest. The sec is going to investigate.
Merkel: That could destroy DiMera enterprises.
Valdez: What should we do?
Stefano: That's not up to me. Ask your CEOs.
JJ: Eve, I don't want to hear a word you have to say. I never want to see you. And I want to forget these last few months completely.
Eve: As if you could. I mean, you got to admit they were kind of unforgettable, weren't they? The way you screwed things up royally.
JJ: Yeah, I did. And I'm going to make things right with Paige now.
Eve: It's too late for that, JJ. And I don't care what kind of deal your mother extracted. And I can stand back, and still, even though Paige doesn't know all the gory details, she knows. She knows that you're untrustworthy, unstable, and unworthy of her. And, you know, that is the god's honest truth. She's never gonna take you back because you pushed her away one too many times.
Abe: Hi, Harold. Uh, look, cook let us in. Theo got a gift for his uncle Chad. Is he around?
Harold: No, but I'll make sure it gets to him.
Hope: Oh, gosh, I'm sorry. Would you excuse just a second? Abe, you promised Theo you would give it to Chad in person...
Hope: Which you know you have to do. He even deputized me to make sure it happened.
Abe: Yeah. So can you tell me where I can find Chad?
Stefano: [Whispering indistinctly]
Chad: What the hell's going on, Kate?
Kate: Hardball. So just keep your mouth shut until I give you the sign, and then you back me up.
[Cell phone pounds on table]
Kate: Could we please come back to order? This situation can easily be resolved.
Kate: Yes. The deal can be unwound. I'll talk to Mr. Shin myself. He'll see that it was a huge misunderstanding. When the transaction is reversed, then I will deal with the sec.
Before markets close tonight?
Kate: Excuse me?
DiMera stock started dropping 30 minutes ago. We're down 3%.
Kate: Where is he going?
Chad: [Clears throat]
Kate: Are you trying to destroy our market value?
Stefano: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Why are you yelling at her?
Kate: The only way the stocks could be going down is if someone is leaking information from this room.
Or someone did the research you should have and knows we're in trouble.
Gordon: This has to stop right now. I move that we reinstate Stefano DiMera as CEO of DiMera enterprises, effective immediately.
Melanie: You need to stop eavesdropping and get a life.
Theresa: [Laughs] Oh! From the woman who has nothing better to do than poke around in mine, huh?
Melanie: Okay, that's fair. But I've stopped digging around in your life, and now you need to leave me and Brady alone and stop stirring up trouble 'cause you're jealous.
Theresa: Jealous? Oh, honey, please. Come on, I am so over your loser boyfriend. And as a matter of fact... I've been dating somebody else.
Melanie: Who you'd drop in a second if you thought Brady would look at you. It's time for a reality check.
Theresa: What passes as reality to you, princess?
Melanie: Brady wouldn't look twice at you sober. And he's done with the crazy, addictive relationship you keep dragging him into.
Theresa: I didn't drag him anywhere.
Melanie: You're right. We both know Brady had a problem before he met you. And then he did meet you and you enabled him all the way down to the gutter because that's the only place he'd have you, and now he's done.
Theresa: But you think that he's going to stay clean and sober because he deserves someone so much better like you?
Melanie: No. He's going to stay clean for himself... because the truth is, Theresa, if I wasn't in the picture, he would still leave you the second he found himself.
Theresa: Well, if you stick around, he's going to have to start using again just to escape the reality of life with you.
Melanie: You're a crazy bitch.
Theresa: Oh, yeah? Do you want to do this?
Daniel: Hey. Theresa.
Theresa: Hey, you know what? I'm gonna go, 'cause this is clearly all my fault. I'm out of here.
Daniel: Okay, this is nuts.
Melanie: No kidding. She came out--
Daniel: No, I am talking about you.
[Dart gun clicks]
Eve: What are you...? Honey. Honey, what--what-- what are you doing here? [Chuckles]
Paige: Uh, looking for you. I realized I forgot to tell you that my performance was canceled today. I tried to text you, but I figured your phone would probably be off because you'd probably be at the concert.
Eve: Yeah, gosh. You know what? I totally forgot about that. Right.
Paige: Yeah, I didn't want you waiting for nothing.
Paige: What happened here, and where is everyone?
JJ: The showcase got canceled 'cause the building lost power.
Paige: Oh. And why are you two still here?
Eve: Well, I, uh--I came looking for you, sweetheart. And then I just happened to run into JJ.
Paige: Please don't lie to me, mom.
Eve: Honey, why--why would I lie--
Paige: Were you trashing JJ?
Eve: No! In fact, I was telling him what a great performance it was. It was a really beautiful piece. Uh, sweetheart, I didn't get to hear you sing, but how about we go get some of that yogurt that we both love? Come on, let's go.
Paige: Uh, that's sounds good, but I-I actually need to speak to JJ... alone.
Kate: This isn't necessary. It was a minor glitch which I can correct.
Gordon: This shouldn't have happened, Kate. As a board, we need to make a bold move to restore confidence. Stefano's return is our only hope at this point.
Stefano: Gentlemen, you-- you flatter me.
Harold: I have no idea where Mr. DiMera is.
Hope: He must have a calendar or something--
Harold: Or Mr. Carver could simply call him and ask directly. Now, I must ask you to leave.
Abe: Well, I'm sorry to bother you, Harold.
Hope: Good day, Harold.
Abe: You saw something.
Hope: Yeah. I know where to find Stefano.
Kate: [Sighs] Point of order, gentlemen. You can't replace me and Chad with Stefano.
Gordon: Why not?
Kate: Because you need two-thirds majority of the voting shares to replace a CEO. And given that Mr. Shin holds such a large share in the company, it would be impossible to do it without him here. So let's just take a step back, shall we?
Gordon: You have it?
Kate: Have what?
Merkel: Shin signed a proxy authorizing me to vote his shares.
Gordon: Then we have a quorum. I would like to call the motion to reinstate Stefano DiMera as CEO of DiMera enterprises. Mr. Valdez?
Gordon: Mr. Merkel?
Gordon: Mr. Shin?
Merkel: On behalf of Mr. Shin, aye.
Gordon: Ms. Roberts?
Gordon: And Mr. Chad DiMera?
Gordon: The ayes have it. Stefano DiMera is reinstated as CEO of DiMera enterprises.
Daniel: I have warned you-- warned you not to take on Theresa.
Melanie: I know, but she started it. She was being snarky about Brady.
Daniel: No, no, I'm not talking about today. You're investigating her.
Melanie: But I have a good reason. There's a good reason for that. I can explain it.
Daniel: Is there?
Melanie: Yeah, there is.
Daniel: Well, I am all ears.
Melanie: Well, but now is not a good time. I can't tell you about--
Daniel: Yeah, you've been avoiding this with me for days.
Melanie: Okay, I'm sorry. And I'll tell you, but I can't right now because I have to go.
Daniel: Yeah? Where?
Melanie: To Brady's house. We're gonna hang out.
Daniel: Mm, you know, what a coincidence. I need to visit with your grandma.
Daniel: Yeah, no. I can ride with you.
Daniel: Yeah, and you can explain all of it in the car.
Eve: You know, it looks like JJ's leaving too, sweetheart, so we can just--
JJ: No, no, I'm not going anywhere. I don't have anywhere to be. But it was nice seeing you, eve. And I really hope you had a nice night, but listen, I really do appreciate the things that you were saying about my song.
Eve: Mm. I meant every word.
JJ: I-I know that we--we haven't gotten along, but I just feel like things are different now, like we've reached a new understanding.
Eve: Mm-hmm. Yeah.
Paige: [Clears throat]
Eve: Well, I guess I, uh, should get going, then. Sweetheart, I'll talk to you later.
Paige: Yeah, okay. Bye, mom.
JJ: [Sighs] So, uh, what's up?
Paige: Uh... uh, my mom was right. Your song was beautiful.
JJ: Wait. You heard it? 'Cause I-I thought you'd left.
Paige: No. I stayed.
JJ: Why, though? I mean, what changed your mind?
Hope: I know a DiMera board meeting is taking place right now. No, no, no, not the company offices. We've already checked, so get on the phone and start calling. Someone rented a space. No, they won't have used DiMera's name. Just find out which venues have been rented. We'll go from there, okay?
Abe: Board meetings are public record.
Hope: Yeah, except emergency meetings with exigent circumstances.
Abe: Like a criminal CEO sneaking into the country?
Hope: You think Stefano knows he's on borrowed time?
Abe: He must.
Hope: We've got to get to him first.
Victor: My dear, is something wrong?
Stefano: Of course, wei. We'll speak tomorrow, all right? Ciao. [Chuckles] All right. Mr. Shin is satisfied. Now I can reverse the sale, and there will be no conflict-of-interest charges.
Kate: [Scoffs] Why didn't I think of that? Have none of you noticed what Stefano just orchestrated?
Gordon: You nearly ruined us.
Kate: No, that would be Stefano. I was the one who made you ungodly amounts of money by streamlining the less disciplined part of the company. Or have you already forgotten that?
Gordon: This guard will accompany you out, Mrs. Roberts.
Gordon: Given your collusion with Victor Kiriakis, we can't conduct any further business in your presence.
Kate: You all are going to get exactly what you deserve... all of you. Well played.
Chad: [Clears throat] Gentlemen, I'd like to be the first to welcome my father back to the head of the company. I look forward to sharing the reigns.
Stefano: Sons... [Chuckles] So eager to get ahead of themselves, huh? [Chuckles] I will be the sole CEO of DiMera Enterprises.
Theresa: Hey. Didn't you get my message?
Clint: Why do you think I'm here? I wanted to surprise you.
Clint: How was work?
Theresa: It sucked, especially today. How was your errand?
Clint: I got what I needed.
Melanie: Listen, I wouldn't have been suspicious, but the way Theresa's guy was talking about mandrake, it just sounded nefarious.
Daniel: Well, how did you find out mandrake was a fertility doctor who disappeared?
Melanie: The internet.
Daniel: Yeah, then what?
Melanie: Then nothing. I dropped it. I've learned my lesson. I'm done. I don't care about Theresa Donovan, like, at all.
Daniel: Okay, I hope you mean that.
Melanie: I do mean that.
Melanie: Seriously, dad, she's a waste of my time. Brady!
Melanie: Oh, my god.
Paige: I was going to leave, but I was curious what you'd chosen to play. I was surprised it was that song you were working on.
JJ: Yeah. Uh... it's the one you helped me with. I-I took your advice about the bridge, and I fixed the ending a little bit.
Paige: I heard.
JJ: Those things made the song.
Paige: No. Your performance did. You completely put your heart and your soul into it, and everyone could hear it. It reminded me of the first time that I heard it.
JJ: I played for you today... because I was thinking about you the whole time and--and how much I miss you. And I-I love you.
Paige: I should go.
JJ: Didn't--didn't you want to tell me something?
Paige: I... I just realized today that we're going to keep running into each other, and I-I want you to leave me alone. Please, just...
JJ: I don't believe that, Paige.
Paige: I don't have a reason to see you.
JJ: Unless you want to hear what I have to say.
Paige: What can you say that I haven't already heard?
JJ: The truth.
Hope: Hi, Victor.
Victor: That's a lovely smile, but you're not fooling me.
Hope: I'm not trying to fool you. Abe and I are working on a case.
Abe: And we need to get back to it, so if you'll excuse us...
Victor: Of course.
Hope: Hey, Victor... I'm glad Maggie was finally able to get you out of the house.
Victor: Well, she is compelling. I needed fresh air and a brisk walk to clear my head. In fact, most of the time I had my phone off. Probably not too smart to leave it like that.
Victor: Pardon the interruption.
Abe: Uh, Victor? You're--you're friends with judge Pearce, aren't you?
Hope: Abe, we're not asking him--
Victor: Yes, well, we play golf now and again.
Abe: Well, you know, it's public record what happened. I'm just having a casual conversation. Judge Pearce issued a stay on an arrest warrant for Stefano DiMera.
Victor: Stay? You mean like there was no warrant? Stefano's free to just breeze into the country? Why would he do that?
Abe: We're not sure. The DA's appealing the ruling right now.
Victor: You want me to make a call?
Hope: I would never ask you to do that.
Victor: Suppose I spontaneously felt the urge to play some golf?
Hope: You'd catch cold. I can't. I cannot do it. I cannot even hint that I'd want you to interfere in any judicial matter.
Victor: You're no fun at all.
Hope: Kate... did you just come from the DiMera board meeting? Tell me it's not over.
Kate: Only for me.
Abe: Where is the board meeting?
Kate: Are you looking for Stefano? Because I can tell you exactly where he is.
Gordon: We'll all rest easier tonight, Mr. DiMera.
Stefano: Happy to be of service.
Gordon: We're fortunate indeed.
Stefano: [Chuckles] Yes, indeed.
Valdez: Welcome back.
Stefano: My pleasure.
Merkel: Thank you, sir.
Stefano: Thank you.
Gentlemen, your cars are ready to take you to the airport.
Stefano: Very good. [Groans]
Chad: Ding, ding, ding. Someone should ring the bell. School's out. That's what just happened here. I got schooled.
Stefano: I can only hope.
Chad: You could have warned me.
Stefano: Perhaps... if I could have trusted you. You don't think I have reason to doubt, huh?
Chad: You said you forgave me.
Stefano: I do... always. That is not the same as trusting you, my son. That is something that you must earn.
Stefano: [Chuckles] Don't look so glum. I did you a favor.
Chad: I'm the one who told you about Kate. You wouldn't have had that move if it weren't for me. I deserve--
Stefano: Ah, you deserve a chance to grow up... and not say things that you will regret.
Chad: You know what, father? You're right. You did me a favor. As much as I would have liked to keep the title of CEO or co-CEO or whatever, I just don't want the responsibility right now. So I'm happy to have you back in charge.
Stefano: Grazie. So now you think that you are on a vacation, hmm?
Chad: I'm out of a job.
Stefano: You are my son. That is a full-time job. You will still come to work every day. You will learn the business. That way, when the time comes, you'll be ready... because you are the future of this family.
Daniel: Slow, thready.
Melanie: Uh, slow and thready. How far out are they? Great. Thank you. Uh, dad, they're five minutes out.
Daniel: All right, his breathing's fine. No signs of trauma. His pulse is slow, but... hey, Brady.
Brady: I'm on the floor. Why am I on the floor?
Daniel: We found you like this--passed out.
Brady: Hi, you-- you're supposed to be at work.
Melanie: Yeah. No, I got off early. Um, how far did you run today?
Brady: A couple of miles in the park.
Daniel: He's not dehydrated.
Melanie: Right. Um... no, no, no, stay there. Uh, don't move. No, don't move, okay?
Daniel: Just stay there. Just stay there, relax.
Melanie: Okay. If he's not dehydrated, then why is he so out of it? I mean, he's loopy.
Daniel: I know.
Melanie: So what do you think it is?
Daniel: Well, I hate to say this, but Brady used to score drugs in the park.
Melanie: No, there's another explanation. There has to be.
Clint: [Clears throat, groans]
Theresa: Here, you hang out and relax. I need to get changed.
Clint: Take your time, baby.
Eve: Hello, Cole.
Cole: Oh, hey. Uh...
Eve: I hear you have a date with my daughter tonight.
Cole: Mrs. Larson, I get that you don't like me very much, but--
Eve: No, no, no, no. That's not true. Actually, I think we just got off on the wrong foot.
Paige: You want to tell me the truth? Does that mean you've still been lying to me?
JJ: I lied to you when I let you believe that I have moved on, 'cause, Paige, I have never stopped loving you.
Paige: Moved on? Yeah, you mean when you slept with someone else?
JJ: Yeah... especially then... 'cause when you went to California and I didn't think you were coming back, I made a stupid mistake. And I realized that it was a mistake right after it happened. And then all of a sudden, you were back, and I didn't know what to do. I felt so guilty that I couldn't even look you in the eye.
Paige: Yeah, you were horrible to me.
JJ: Yeah, I-I know. And I pushed you away. I just didn't feel like I deserved you. And I still don't. Believe me, I've--I've wanted to give up... and I've tried to forget about you, and I've tried to stop loving you... but I can't. I can't live my life without you, Paige.
Melanie: Hi. What did Dr. Wedret say?
Daniel: She examined Brady. Everything seems fine. She's, uh--she's running some tests.
Melanie: Okay. Toxicology report?
Daniel: Mm-hmm. Of course.
Melanie: Those things take forever.
Daniel: We should be getting some preliminary results soon, honey.
Melanie: He wasn't high, dad. I'd bet my life on it. Hi.
Melanie: Hi. Hi.
Daniel: Hey. Brady. Hey.
Melanie: It's okay. It's okay.
Daniel: You more alert?
Brady: I'm f-- yeah, a little.
Daniel: Okay, well, maybe-- maybe you can answer, uh, a few questions.
Daniel: Okay, honey, why don't you get some coffee?
Melanie: I don't want any coffee, dad.
Brady: She can stay. I don't mind.
Daniel: Okay, uh, do you remember what happened? Just--just walk it back.
Brady: [Sighs] I went--I went for a run. I went for a run. It was a jog. I didn't--I didn't even go that far. I went home, and that's all I remember.
Daniel: You ate today, had--had plenty of water?
Brady: Yeah. Yeah.
Daniel: Are you on any medication right now?
Daniel: How about anything recreational?
Brady: You mean drugs?
Clint: At least I don't need a gun this time.
Theresa: Mm. Okay. You ready for some fun?
Clint: Yeah, baby.
Eve: You know, I feel like, well, that I owe you an apology. I shouldn't judge you on your past. Actually, when I was your age, I had quite a rap sheet myself.
Eve: I wouldn't be too happy about that.
Cole: No. Right. Uh... so you're cool with me seeing Paige?
Eve: Well, for now. But if you do anything to hurt my daughter, you're going to have to answer to me, and just so we're clear, that rap sheet included running someone over with a car, so you understand?
Cole: Yes, ma'am.
Cole: I can promise you have nothing to worry about. I'll be good to Paige. She's really cool.
Eve: Cool? She is amazing. And you treat her like the goddess that she is, and I might even root for you.
Cole: For real?
Eve: Oh, for real. I just want this date to be wonderful, really wonderful. I can't even tell you how great I hope it goes.
JJ: You are the only girl I'll ever love, Paige. And I know how stupid that can sound at--at our age. But sometimes it just happens like that. You're it for me, Paige.
Paige: [Voice breaking] I can't do this right now.
JJ: Okay, well, then meet me tonight. The bench near the fountain... where we always used to hang out. Is 7:00 okay?
Paige: No, I have a date.
JJ: Well, then bag it... just this once. Please, just give me a chance to explain myself. Please. She didn't say no.
Brady: I can't even believe you'd ask me that.
Daniel: It's a standard question we ask everybody.
Brady: All right, well, no. No, I did not use any drugs.
Daniel: Then what happened?
Brady: I don't know. But I do know that I didn't take anything.
[Cell phone ringing]
Daniel: Well, they have preliminary results on your blood work. Sit tight.
Brady: I swear, I'm--I'm not lying.
Melanie: I believe you. Promise.
Brady: I don't--I don't know how this could've happened.
Kate: So Stefano floated that information to you, knowing it would get to me. He even held it against me that I'd been speaking with you. We both walked into his traps.
Victor: Well, this hasn't been my week.
Kate: You seem awfully calm about it.
Victor: What are you going to do? Stefano is a bastard. He's evil incarnate. We've both known that for decades.
Kate: So how did he play you so badly?
Victor: I've been off my game lately. Besides, like you, I was looking for an easy win. Sorry.
Kate: Are you?
Victor: They kicked you to the curb, huh?
Kate: Mm. You know the drill.
Victor: What are you gonna do?
Kate: Well, I'm a free agent. I guess I will go wherever the offer is best.
Victor: As well you should. Lucas is doing a wonderful job at mad world. No need to worry about him... or me.
Kate: You know I would be happy...
Victor: Oh, there's no need. Besides, you wouldn't want to push aside your own son.
Kate: No. Of course not.
[Cell phone ringing]
Kate: But perhaps...
Victor: Excuse me. I have to take this. I'm, uh--I'm sorry things didn't work out, Kate.
Hope: The stay on the warrant has been lifted.
Abe: All right, let's pick him up.
Hope: Stefano DiMera, you're under arrest.
Chad: Hi, folks.
Abe: Where's your father?
Chad: I'm sorry, but you just missed him.
Stefano: Mm-hmm. Everything went according to plan.
Victor: Well, that must have been a thing of beauty. You're in the air?
Victor: Oh, just in time. Judge Pearce held on to that stay as long as he could. But the minute your wheels left the ground, the warrant was back in force.
Stefano: Well, what is it? Your judge couldn't have made it permanent?
Victor: Don't push your luck, Stefano.
Stefano: [Chuckles] I'm grateful for your help.
Victor: Remember it.
Stefano: Don't worry. I will not forget that I owe you.
Victor: Eh, you won't. Have a good flight.
Stefano: Ciao. [Chuckles]
