Daniel: Check on Brady black every four hours. Melanie's visiting with him now. If she's still there in another hour or so, you just shoo her out. He needs his rest.
Daniel: Yeah, thank you.
Abigail: Daniel, hey.
Abigail: Hi, I just talked to my mom. She said she heard that Brady was admitted. What's wrong?
Daniel: Yeah, it's no big deal. Turns out he's fine. Going home in the morning. You know, I will let him, uh, tell you about it.
Abigail: Okay. I'll let my mom know. She was really worried.
Daniel: I care about you and both of your kids. I always will. But I really hate it when you tell me not to be involved, especially when you're the one who brought me into this. Now, I can tell you're lying. And I am worried about you. How, uh--how are things with your mom and, uh--and JJ?
Jennifer: There you are. And looking very handsome, I might add.
JJ: I don't think I've ever been this nervous. If Paige doesn't give me another chance... you know, what am I even talking about? She didn't say she'd meet me, and she might not even show.
Cole: So... ready to hang out? You and me?
Tori: Listen to me, will. My having been in Salem all those years ago had absolutely nothing to do with Paul.
Will: Please. It has everything to do with Paul. This is where you met his father.
Tori: That's-- uh, I don't know what you're talking about.
Will: I'm talking about this photo of you. Now, I didn't notice it at first, but when you zoom in right here in the corner, there's a date.
Tori: I don't see how that's relevant to anything.
Will: Yeah, I didn't see it at first either until I did the math-- and what happened nine months later, when your son Paul was born.
Paul: We just won the world series. How great are we, huh?
Fernando: Bunny ears.
Paul: Oh, no. [Chuckles]
Fernando: You got bunny ears.
Marcos: Molly, look behind you.
John: Hey, Sonny. Welcome home. Hey, have you ever met Paul Narita?
Paul: The guy who wrote the article for Sonix... his name is will Horton. I came out to him, and we slept together.
Eric: Mom, thanks for coming.
Marlena: Yes, well, you don't normally call me out of the blue. So, uh, is something wrong?
Eric: I don't know. Maybe nothing.
Marlena: Well, you seem a little worried.
Eric: I am... about Serena.
Serena: Mel, hey, you know, we should, um-- we should get together. Um, I'm meeting up with Eric soon, but I'll text you. Or call me. [Exhales deeply] Oh. It's you.
Nicole: Yep, me.
Serena: We've really got to stop running into each other like this. Have a good one.
Nicole: You know, I still keep thinking how weird it was... at Daniel's apartment. I walked in and surprised you, and you dropped all that stuff.
Serena: Right. Right, when you were wearing next to nothing.
Nicole: And you dropped those elephant statues... two. I definitely saw two. So why did you lie and say there was only one?
Abigail: JJ's kind of been on a roller coaster lately. You know, he was so upset about what happened with Paige.
Daniel: Right, yeah.
Abigail: He wouldn't talk about it, but you could just tell how upset he was, you know?
Daniel: Yeah, yeah. Yeah. No, I saw--saw him.
Abigail: And then my mom and I found out all of a sudden that he's been--he's been seeing this girl that he knew from back when he was in boarding school in London. Her name is Roxanne.
Daniel: Yeah, yeah, I-I saw her with him, and she didn't really seem, uh--
Abigail: What? Not like his type?
Abigail: I know. Tell me about it, right? I mean, he wouldn't even explain how it happened. Didn't want to talk about it. The good news is that it ended, but the bad news... [Sighs]
Abigail: Just JJ--he totally crashed. And he wouldn't say why. He wouldn't look me in the eye. He didn't want to talk about anything. I was really worried about him.
Daniel: Well, maybe--maybe your mother found out what happened.
Abigail: But not that she told me. We've been-- we've been missing each other lately, though. But then I get this weird voice mail from JJ a little while ago, and he sounds totally fine. I mean, he actually sounded happy.
Daniel: Well, that's, uh-- that's great. And I'm glad to hear that. Yeah.
Abigail: Yeah, right. No. Yeah, it is good. [Sighs] Okay, I got to get back to work. Thank you, Daniel.
Daniel: All right, take care.
Jennifer: Honey, what do you mean Paige didn't say she'd meet you?
JJ: Well, I asked, and-- and she looked like she was okay with it.
Jennifer: All right, honey, but, listen, this is the thing. If she didn't want to see you again, she would have said no, and she didn't say that. So that means she's willing to talk.
JJ: Well, all I can do is hope, I guess. I wouldn't have a chance if it wasn't for you.
[Cell phone ringing]
Jennifer: Listen, honey, uh, one more thing before you go-- if Daniel tries to call you, don't pick up, okay?
Marlena: So you think that Serena might be leaving Salem?
Eric: It's a possibility, yeah.
Marlena: Yeah, well, I thought she was going to be doing research at the hospital for the next year or so.
Eric: Things changed. Anyway, but, uh, it's nothing definite.
Marlena: Mm-hmm. But you want to check with me to make sure that I would be okay if you go with her?
Eric: Will you?
Serena: I didn't lie. There was only one.
Nicole: I saw two.
Serena: Okay, well, I don't know what to say. [Chuckles] I mean, we were both shocked. Your brain was probably playing tricks on you. I mean, obviously, you forgot to put the rest of your clothes on.
Nicole: It was a simple dress.
Serena: Yes, very simple. And it was paired with this rather massive overcoat. What did you end up cooking for Daniel?
Nicole: If you want to change the subject, you should be a little more subtle. We can't ignore the two elephants in the room, now, can we? And I really doubt I could be wrong about something so basic, so...
Serena: Well, you are. We're here today
Marlena: Eric... I don't want you to worry about me when you decide whatever you decide. Honey, I asked you to stay here when john was in the coma, and you did.
Eric: Mom, I was glad to.
Marlena: But it wasn't permanent. It wasn't meant to be permanent, you know? I mean, after all you'd been through with Nicole and with Kristen... well, I can see how leaving Salem would have a certain appeal. So, if you have feelings for Serena and you-- you want to go with her, I guess I'll be okay.
Marlena: I'll be fine. Oh, I love you.
Nicole: Ooh. You got a little snippy all of a sudden. Just snip, snip.
Serena: [Clears throat] Why are we always challenging each other? I mean, one statue, two statues, why argue over this? I certainly don't want to, and I'm sure deep down, you don't either.
Nicole: Yeah, but I saw two--
Serena: You were the one who apologized for all those misunderstandings with Eric.
Nicole: Okay, well--
Serena: When you embarrassed yourself over and over. And you know what? I'm choosing not to go there with you on this, mainly 'cause I don't have time 'cause I have a date to get to... with Eric. And I-I'm sure that you have better things to do with yourself. Or at least I hope so. Bye.
Nicole: I saw two of them. [Sighs] But she's right. You know what? I do have something better to do.
Jennifer: Honey, we cannot let Daniel know--oh-- what happened between you and eve, all right? He means well. He does. And he just wants to help, but, gosh, he is so persistent. So just not a word, all right?
JJ: And what if I run into him?
Jennifer: Just change the subject. Just tell him the only thing you want to think about right now is Paige.
JJ: Which is true.
Jennifer: And for now at least, we need to do everything we can to make sure that Abigail doesn't know.
Jennifer: Honey, think about it. Three of us know about this, all right? Me, you, and eve. And everyone else that finds out about it from here-- the odds of it getting back to Paige go up exponentially.
JJ: Okay, I got it. I'd hate to tell abs, anyway. I-I just--
JJ: I really hope Paige meets me... and she at least listens.
Paige: Sure, Cole. Let's go.
Paul: Sonny and I have met. How are you?
Sonny: I'm well. Thank you.
John: Of course. What's the matter with me? Will wrote the article. You just get in?
Sonny: Yeah, I came straight from the airport.
John: Yeah, I just saw will a little while ago. He didn't say anything about you coming home today.
Sonny: Yeah, he doesn't know yet.
Tori: Why are you doing this? Why come here and torture me?
Will: I thought I made myself clear. I am trying to save my marriage, and the best way for me to do that is to make sure that Paul is not in Salem when Sonny comes home.
Tori: I told you, I did all I could.
Will: [Chuckles] [Clears throat] I'm gonna be blunt, Mrs. Narita. I think that you tend to lie about whatever you feel, like telling your son that his father's dead.
Tori: He is.
Will: Or that he conveniently has no relatives. Now, you told Paul that you've never been to Salem before. So my question, Mrs. Narita, is how many other lies have you told him? Hey, how you doin'?
John: So you decided to surprise him, huh? That'll make his day.
Marcos: Oh, Mr. Black?
John: Yeah, hold on. Excuse me. What's going on, kids? What's happening?
Sonny: I wasn't sure you'd still be in Salem.
Paul: I wouldn't be if I, uh, didn't commit to a benefit. John's heading the fund-raiser. He needs me to be a draw.
Sonny: Right. Well, it's nice of you to help out.
Paul: Well, I'll be gone as, uh--as soon as it's over. I mean, if you and will are planning on working things out, I shouldn't be around.
Sonny: If will and I are going to work things out, it can't be just 'cause you're not in Salem. What happened between you and will happened because there's something wrong in our marriage.
Paul: Yeah, I'm not sure, uh, will sees it that way.
Will: I-I didn't want to tell Paul about you. I really didn't, but since you're--
Tori: No, will, will, please. Please, don't say anything. It would only hurt him. Or maybe that's what you want to do.
Will: I think it would hurt you too. My guess is that Paul would be very angry if he found out that you've kept a secret from him his entire life. Now, I'm sure that you have a very good reason for not wanting Paul to know who his father is, just like I have a good reason for not wanting Paul in Salem when Sonny comes back. We can both get what we want. We can help each other.
Tori: I told you, Paul won't leave until after he does that benefit for the children. While he's here, he has promised to stay away from you and Sonny. Then we'll go. I promise. That's the best I can do.
Daniel: [Chuckles] Yes, yes, parker. You can stay at Grandma's. She'll bring you home at bedtime. And I will see you then, okay, big boy? All right, love you.
[Knock at door]
Nicole: Hello. We agreed that I would come over and help you get ready for your presentation tomorrow, remember?
Daniel: Oh, yeah, yeah. No, I had an emergency patient.
Nicole: Oh. I hope it's no one I know. [Chuckles] Daniel?
Daniel: You've heard of hipaa, right?
Nicole: Seriously? You're gonna play the privacy card?
Daniel: I texted you that it was off. Didn't you get it?
Nicole: No, I didn't.
Daniel: Well, most of the stores are closed now, so there's-- you know, picking out a new tie is just not gonna--
Nicole: Oh, no, no. Forget the new tie. I have something else we can do. You ready?
[Dance music playing]
Serena: Hey, you.
Eric: Hey. You made it.
Eric: Hey, listen, I was just talking to a new friend. Serena, this is Navidad.
Navidad: Hello, Serena.
Serena: [Chuckles awkwardly]
JJ: [Exhales deeply] You came.
Paige: I couldn't stay away. But that doesn't mean anything.
JJ: It means the world to me.
Nicole: You know, it takes more than a new tie to make a man look good.
Daniel: Hey, you know, I'm a pretty snazzy dresser when I want to be.
Nicole: Oh, you're snazzy, huh?
Daniel: That's right.
Nicole: Well, putting on a suit doesn't necessarily let people see the real you... all right, the man who could wow people with what's under the surface. So, when you walk up to that podium... and you give your speech... and change people's lives, you need to make a fantastic first impression.
Daniel: Yeah. Well, what does that mean? What are you trying to say here?
Nicole: You need a shave!
Jennifer: All right, honey, I have a healthy snack for us, and I made some chamomile tea so we can just sit and-- you okay?
Abigail: Yeah, I was thinking. I saw Daniel when I was leaving the hospital, and he asked how JJ was doing. And I realized--
Abigail: He's my brother, and I don't have a clue what's going on in his life.
Jennifer: Honey, he's-- he's fine. He's--he's gonna be okay.
Abigail: Mom, okay, but have you--have you ever realized how everything that JJ's into is a secret? You know, always-- it's just--it's so strange. I mean, he breaks up with Paige, and he's so unhappy about it. He never tells me why. And then he does this whole thing with Roxanne and keeps it all on the down-low like that and then breaks up with her, and he's all relieved.
Jennifer: Right. I mean, but we both knew that was not gonna work out.
Abigail: Yes, I know, but yesterday he was just-- he was so down. And then today I get this voice mail from him, and he's laughing and happy. He's my brother, and we always share everything with each other, and I have no idea what's going on in his life. Do you? Do you have any idea what's happening?
JJ: I'm so glad that you decided-- I-I-I mean, you're here. So that at least means that you want to hear what I have to say... right?
Paige: I guess.
JJ: Okay, well, that means more... Paige, I'm so sorry I hurt you. And I will never, ever hurt you again.
Paige: Is that what you told your other girlfriend?
Paige: Roxanne. Did you tell her you'd never hurt her while you were hurting me? Maybe I should ask her. I mean, no way do I want to see her again, but after everything that's happened, it's too weird.
Paige: I mean, you kept telling me you were with this other girl, hooking up all the time, and then suddenly you want to be with me again? I mean, maybe if I talk to her and found out what really happened between the two of you, maybe this would actually make sense.
JJ: No, I just-- I just don't think that's a very good idea.
Paige: Well, maybe that's not your call.
Paige: Seriously, JJ, if I knew why you dumped her for me, maybe I'd understand... unless there's, you know, some reason that you don't want me to talk to her.
Eric: Navidad bumped into me, and we got to talking.
Serena: Right. Um, it happens sometimes.
Navidad: Well, I'll leave you two alone. Nice meeting you, Eric. Brady, right?
Eric: That's right.
Navidad: I won't forget. Nice meeting you too, Serena.
John: I think the most effective pitch in all of baseball is...
Sonny: If that's how will feels, he needs to rethink. He's the one who said he knew we had a lot of work to do. He's the one that brought up couples therapy.
Paul: Well, that's probably a good idea, assuming you cut the guy a little slack.
Sonny: I'm sorry?
Paul: Sonny, you're the first guy he'd been involved with.
Sonny: Till he met you.
Paul: Look, and that's not something that I'm proud of. I didn't mean to hurt you, but I did. The only reason why I brought it up is because, well... I mean, since you're the only guy... maybe that could be part of the reason why he made a mistake.
Sonny: Are you making excuses for him?
Paul: No, no, there's no excuse for what happened. You know what? It's probably better if we don't talk about what happened. In fact, it's probably best if we--if we don't see each other again. You and will need to work things out... get past this.
Sonny: Thank you... for offering to stay away.
Paul: Yeah, well, you made it clear that's what you want. And all I want is for you to be happy. [Sighs] A lot's happened the last few months. [Chuckles] A lot's changed. But not that. It'll never change, Sonny. All right, guys.
Paul: Hey, who's ready to learn how to throw a ball?
Paul: Come here. Get up here. All right, let me see. All right, molly, how do you hold a ball? How do you grip it? Let me see. Now, that is amazing.
Fernando: That's how Mr. Black taught us.
Paul: Mr. Black taught you that? That is amazing. I can't teach you guys anything more. Way to go. [Laughs]
Molly: He taught us the split finger.
Will: Fine. If Sonny comes back before the benefit, I'll trust you on that. Paul stays out of the way except for that one appearance.
Tori: You have my word.
Will: And if Paul does not leave town after that fund-raiser, if he should decide to come between me and my husband... I won't just tell Paul who his real father is. I will write a cover story for Sonix magazine, and I will tell the whole world. That's a promise. Clear?
Tori: Will, you have no idea who Paul's father really is.
Will: Wrong. Don't tempt me. Believe me. I understand why you don't want anyone knowing that your son's father was a man named DiMera.
Nicole: Now, don't get me wrong, Daniel. I love the way you look. But remember you told me there's that cranky old lady on your board? Mrs. Finn, I think you said her name was.
Daniel: Yeah, yeah, yeah. What about her?
Nicole: And she commented on your five o'clock shadow, and it really annoyed you.
Daniel: Yeah, well, so what? It doesn't mean that I--
Nicole: All right, all right, hold on. Just let me finish, okay? I just think... and I will concede that you were not put on this earth to please cranky Mrs. Finn, but she is on the board, and obviously she will be at your presentation tomorrow, and, well... would you really want her glaring at you the whole time? Well, would you?
Daniel: N-no, I suppose not. No, but I-I--
Nicole: Okay, and so, more importantly, Daniel, you are a great guy and an amazing doctor, and when you're communicating with a group like you'll be communicating with tomorrow, well... people are gonna want to be able to read you. They'll want to know what you're thinking and feeling underneath that cool, calm exterior. People are gonna want to know how much you care... and how passionate you are. And what they should see is a guy who's open... and ready to change.
Daniel: Mm-mm. [Chuckles]
Nicole: Daniel, I swear. I swear, I am not--I'm not trying to push boundaries. This is about you and what you need. It... it just so happens I happen to be very skilled with a straight-edge razor. So it won't take long at all. [Chuckles]
Daniel: Okay. What the hell?
Daniel: [Chuckles] Yeah. Oh.
Serena: Sorry I was late. You weren't waiting long, were you?
Eric: A few minutes.
Serena: Oh, enough to get bumped into. [Chuckles awkwardly]
Eric: You seem unsettled.
Serena: I do? No. No, I'm fine.
Eric: Well, listen, it's not about leaving Salem, is it?
Serena: No. I'm... I'm sorry. I never should have mentioned that, 'cause it's way too soon to know what's gonna happen. How about you get me one of those vodka stingers?
Eric: Mm. Your favorite. It's coming right up.
Serena: How dare she? [Clears throat] [Sighs] Voice mail. Bitch. Navidad, what the hell was that about?
John: Hey, good job. And, kids, you were absolutely great. I hope you had fun today.
Marcos: Yeah, we did.
John: Did you? All right, all right. We'll do it again soon.
Marcos: Okay. Thanks.
Fernando: Bye. Thank you.
Molly: Thank you, Mr. Black. Bye.
Fernando: So long.
John: Hey, will. How you doing, man?
Will: Fine, thanks. What, uh--what was that?
John: Ah, getting some publicity photos of the kids with Paul Narita. I'll send them to you. You can put them up on the website.
John: Yeah. He was really terrific with the kids. You know, when I first met Paul, I wasn't so sure about him, but it turns out he's a real stand-up guy, but then again, you know all that, with all the time you spent interviewing him, right?
Will: Yeah, we spent a lot of time together. Yeah.
Will: Uh, well, I'm just getting home, so...
John: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, sure. Hey, listen, have a good time tonight.
John: Okay. Surprise. [Imitates explosion, chuckles]
Sonny: Okay, Lucas took Ari out. What?
Abigail: Has JJ told you anything? Do you know what's going on?
Jennifer: Um, I don't want to...
Abigail: Mom, what? You don't want to what?
Jennifer: Look, this isn't necessarily going to happen, but Paige and JJ might get back together.
Abigail: What? Wait. JJ told me flat out that she would never even look at him again.
Jennifer: Well, and maybe it won't work out, but he thinks maybe there's a chance.
Abigail: Oh, my god. That is why he was so happy. That's fantastic.
Jennifer: Yeah. I mean, it's just a possibility.
Abigail: Yeah, but that's so good for him. I don't even know why they broke up. Do you?
Jennifer: I just want your brother to be happy, and that's what you want for him also.
Abigail: Yeah, of course.
Jennifer: Right? Okay, so here's how we can help him. Just don't say anything to anyone about Paige and JJ talking to each other, okay?
JJ: Okay. Okay, if that's what you want, I'll give you Roxanne's number. But I mean it, Paige-- it won't help, because we are so over.
Paige: Okay, okay. No. No, no, no. What a stupid idea. That'd be terrible. I mean... call up some girl who was just dumped and ask her a bunch of questions like, "well, why? Well, how'd it feel? What did he say?" No, for--
JJ: Yeah, not cool.
Paige: But tell me this... did you hurt her?
JJ: Roxanne and I?
JJ: No, I didn't hurt her.
Paige: See, that doesn't make sense. How could a person sleep with you for all this time and not be hurt when you broke it off? I mean, I don't care who she is.
JJ: Okay, but see, right from the start... any time she was with me, she always knew... that the only woman that I loved was you, Paige. That's a good-looking pile of dirt.
Serena: No. I can't call him when I'm out in public.
Eric: One vodka stinger.
Serena: Oh. Oh, than--thanks.
Eric: What's wrong?
Serena: This is embarrassing.
Eric: What? Talk to me.
Serena: You're not going to believe this, but my-- my editor just texted me, and he--he wants to see the work that I've been doing on the research proposal, um...
Serena: Like, now.
Eric: I mean, you just got here.
Serena: I know. I know. I'm--I'm so sorry, 'cause this was our time, and I was--I was really looking forward to it all day. Um... don't be mad at me. I promise I'll make it up to you, okay?
Eric: I'm gonna hold you to it.
Serena: [Chuckles] You're sweet.
Eric: Because I love you.
Serena: And I love you... so much.
Abigail: So everything has to stay a secret?
Jennifer: No, not a secret. I-- I just think your brother is embarrassed about a lot of things.
Abigail: Yeah, like hooking up with Roxanne. I mean, what was he thinking?
Jennifer: The most important thing is, is that he realizes where he went wrong, and right now he wants to do everything he can to make it right.
Abigail: With Paige?
Jennifer: Yes, if he can. But he's just gonna need his space. And it's not gonna be easy, so the more questions you ask him, the harder you're gonna make it for him.
Abigail: Okay. Right, got it. [Crunches]
JJ: Paige, I know I made a mistake... the worst mistake of my life, and I have been trying to figure out how I--how I could do something so stupid, and honest to god, I just can't.
Paige: I never understood. One day you loved me, and then one day you didn't.
JJ: No, I never stopped loving you. I love you now, and I want to be with you. And when it finally hit me that maybe you'd give me a chance--
Paige: Why did you wait till now? I don't--
JJ: I stayed away 'cause I didn't feel like I was good enough for you. And I still think that, but just lately... I have realized that what I think doesn't matter. It's all about what you think and what you want. And all I can do is just hope... hope that you want me.
Tori: How'd the photo session go?
Paul: Good. Kids are great, lots of fun.
Tori: But as soon as the benefit's over, we're leaving for san Francisco, hopefully before Sonny Kiriakis gets back.
Paul: It's too late on that.
Paul: I just saw him.
Will: There he is... still here. [Clears throat]
Marlena: I thought you were having drinks with Serena.
Eric: Yeah, well, that was the plan.
Marlena: What happened to it?
Eric: That's a good question.
Serena: Come on, bitch, answer this time. [Sighs]
Tori: You went to see Sonny?
Paul: No. I was doing the photo shoot, and he just showed up at the square.
Tori: Because he knew you were there.
Paul: It was pure coincidence. He had just gotten back into Salem.
Tori: So you didn't speak to him.
Paul: Of course I did.
Tori: You need to stay away from him, Paul.
Paul: Mom... from what Sonny said, it was pretty clear that he came back into town to work things out with his husband. And, yes, I'm going to stay away from him. I'll give Sonny and will all the time they need to make things work. Look, everything's gonna be okay. Relax. You have nothing to worry about.
Will: Wow. You're home. I-I didn't expect you to be home today. I have missed you. My god, you have no idea. Is, um-- is my dad still here with Ari?
Sonny: No. He left a note on the door. He took her out.
Will: So... we're alone.
Sonny: Looks like, yeah... which is good... maybe.
Will: Yeah, well, we have a lot to talk about.
Sonny: Yeah. Let's begin with this. What the hell is all this? First you sleep with Paul, now you're obsessed with him?
[Razor tapping on bowl]
Daniel: [Chuckles] Mm.
JJ: Paige, I know I should say just take your time and think about it, but I can't. I can't wait, not one minute longer. I've got to know. Can you forgive me?
