(This still needs extensive editing)
Melanie? What are you doing? What are you doing here?
I was looking for you.
Oh. What are you doing in the blood bank? And what's in the bag?
Eric, we need to talk.
There's something that you need to know, and it's about Xander.
Okay, what about him?
You're taking me to them right now.
There's something I've been keeping from you, and it's time you knew what it is.
Ooh, gosh. Sorry, I--
Well, at least you don't have a cup of coffee in your hand this time.
That's right. Me.
[Clears throat] I'd like to say we should stop meeting like this, but the truth is, I'll take meeting you any way at all.
Why in the hell did I have to see this? You didn't think I felt bad enough already? You have to rub my nose in it, make me feel even more pain for what I did?
God, you crazy klepto. I was joking when I said that we'd steal stuff. So where is it?
The coat. And why the hell did you take it?
Okay, mom, text number five, maybe you'll answer this one.
What's going on?
I went to bed with eve.
I'm not gonna tell Paige and I'm not gonna back out of our agreement, but I need to talk to Daniel.
It's all cool. Mom will handle it. Everything's gonna be fine.
Daniel, I can't do this. I can't live without knowing.
I am not gonna let you ruin JJ's happiness.
You know that's not what I want.
Okay, then just tell me, are you gonna keep your mouth shut or not?
I'm so sorry, but the door was open and I heard you guys.
Paige, what did you hear?
So you were keeping something from me?
Before, at the club, when I was with Xander, I... I lied to you.
Sorry, I'm just one of those people that can't walk and text at the same time.
Uh-huh, nice try. I know you're stalking me.
In your dreams.
Ah. You already know me so well.
Why would I take an old man's coat, Theresa?
Hey, I didn't say that it was a man's. See, you do know what I'm talking about.
[Scoffs] I know that you like playing Columbo, that's for sure, but you are wrong.
Yeah? I don't think so. That grumpy old bitch by the door said that she saw you leaving with a shopping bag and said that Dr. Jonas's donated coat was missing. Ugh, you should have heard her say, "Dr. Jonas's coat." It's like you swiped the shroud of Turin.
Well, I didn't, okay?
Okay, fine. Well, if you weren't shoplifting, then why did you take off and leave me in the lurch?
I'm not gonna just sit around here waiting.
I heard the two of you fighting. I heard you asking Daniel to keep quiet. Look, I'm sorry to interrupt, it's just, um... when I was babysitting yesterday, parker was playing with this and pretending my bag was an enemy planet, and when I was in physics class, I was getting a pen and found it and I just--I know how much he loves it.
Yeah, thanks. Thank you.
Well, I have a ton of stuff to do. Again, I'm so sorry.
Honey, please, wait. There's something I want to talk to you about.
Just get me those figures by tomorrow.
So the child I guess they thought they didn't have, if it's still out there--
Brady: Okay, all right, we'll discuss it then.
Is there a problem at titan? Do you have to go back to the office?
Stop, stop, it's not gonna work. Give me some answers. What's going on?
Um, I was just picking this up.
Did you run out of plasma? What were you using it for?
No, no, no, no, I was just covering for my friend Jorge.
Oh. That was nice of you. Doesn't explain the bag.
What do you have?
So, you couldn't get this out of your car?
It wasn't really hard. We--look, obviously, I wanted it to be a surprise. Well, what surprises me is that you'd actually think I'd want a huge stuffed rabbit. It's not exactly what every single guy dreams of for his birthday.
Excuse me, Melanie, you told me you got that for parker.
I bet you come on like this to every woman you meet.
Only smart, beautiful women with killer legs.
Oh, and there it is. And it doesn't bother you if they're unavailable?
When a woman is as gorgeous as you are, there's always going to be other men. Doesn't mean you just throw in the towel. How's it going with my competition anyway?
Wow. Wow, you really have to work on your self-esteem. What, we've met twice and you're already calling him a competition?
I can do the tango. Can he do the tango?
Okay, all right, no, no-- no competition. You are, at most, an acquaintance.
Don't be so hasty, miss walker. When things fall through with what's-his-name, wouldn't it be nice if I were there to pick up the pieces?
Uh, look... [Chuckles] It's a really nice offer, but it's probably not a good idea.
That little hesitation, the edge in your voice when you talk about this guy, it makes me think that you're not having a lot of fun. Now, me, I'm lots of fun.
Let me ask you this. How would your friend Serena feel about you and me having "fun," hmm? She hates me, and I-- well, let's just say there's no love lost.
And Eric Brady, how do you feel about him?
Did you lie when you said you and Xander weren't talking about Nicole?
No. No, we really were talking about Nicole Fuentes. But Xander and I have talked about your Nicole. See, he's met her. Quite honestly, I have a big problem with that.
Theresa, I left because we were supposed to be hanging out together, but then Maggie commandeered you. And why would I take Daniel's coat? Why would I even want to be reminded of that man anyway?
Well, maybe so you could give it to that wiccan lady in your building and she could put a curse on it, and la Horton while she's at it. It was a joke, eve.
I have to go.
Honey, I know how busy you are. I was just wondering if I could speak to you alone for about 20 minutes or so? Maybe meet me at the pub? It won't take long.
Yeah, I guess so.
Okay, thank you.
Um, well, tell parker I said hi.
I will. I will. And I will see you soon, okay?
Okay. I doubt you want time alone with her to tell her the truth.
You know I'm not gonna do that, but I need to know about you. I need you to promise me that you are not gonna tell anyone what happened between JJ and eve.
Jennifer, I won't promise that.
You're right, obviously, I did get one for parker, but it was so cute that I bought it because it reminded me of you.
He reminded you of me?
Thanks a bunch.
Well, no, I mean, he's so cute, and the same shade of blue, so happy birthday, and I have to go.
So I will just--
I'm not buying it, Mel. I'm not buy--Mel! Melanie! Melanie!
So Xander knows Nicole?
Barely. He's always been attracted to shiny things, so it makes sense that she'd end up on his radar.
And I'm supposed to care?
I care. I'm gonna write this article for him. I want to get it done ASAP and send him on his merry way, and if he's hanging out with Nicole now-- anyway, I need to ask you a favor. Please keep your distance from him and don't engage him. The last thing I need is for you to get mixed up in all of this.
So this isn't about Nicole. It's about Xander.
You know, the other day, when you said you weren't exactly fond of that guy, and I didn't ask for an explanation? I'm asking now.
Well, now, that is a loaded question.
Sorry, I didn't mean to put you on the spot.
Look, Eric is my past, okay?
Mine too. Eric, Serena, and I were close in Africa, but when it comes to my opinion of other people, I make up my own mind. Don't give a damn what they have to say, especially when it comes to someone as interesting as you are.
You think you're quite the charmer, don't you?
Well, it only really matters what you think. Look, Serena and I are working together, but it's not a big deal. She and Eric can stay far away from our conversations if you like. Hell, we don't even have to mention their names again. How's that sound? What do you say?
I don't know. I--
Great, what's your cell number?
Oh, you already gave me your business card.
There you go. I just sent you my info. Now you have mine.
[Chuckles] That's--yes, I do.
[Laughs] Xander cook.
Call me if you get a chance, but remember, I don't like rejection, so call, or my misery will be all your fault.
Hmm. I finally understand how you get that look. Secondhand clothing. Hey, do you go to the barber college to get your hair cut?
Is she here? I told her I would help if I could.
Oh, well, great timing, because the work's already done, so she left, so as usual, you're worthless.
Okay, well, if the work's done, I'll leave you here and go hang out with Paige.
Mm, my win, her loss.
You know, hold on one second. There's still one thing I need to say to you.
Oh, yeah? What's that?
What did you just say?
I am not making any promises. I am not gonna lie to Paige.
Okay, you don't have to, 'cause I'm gonna go talk to her, and I'm gonna smooth everything over and it's gonna be fine.
Oh, you mean you're gonna do the lying for both of us? I'm sorry, but I can't believe you're doing this to her. I have seen you, again and again, do the right thing even if it hurts. And now this?
I'm trying to protect her, Daniel.
No, no, you're trying to give your son what he wants. You don't even--you're not even thinking about Paige.
That is not true at all! I--
Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, what if she was your daughter? Would you still be gung-ho about JJ? And I love him, I'm on his side, but doesn't what he did scare you? Even if that woman seduced him, you just told me he went back for more!
Wait a minute. He didn't do it. She had her claws in him, Daniel.
Oh, boy, okay, okay.
Yeah. Okay, okay, let's just say that were true. He kept sleeping with that woman against his will. At the very least, doesn't that imply that he's not exactly ready for a committed relationship? And that's what Paige thinks they have!
But it's eve's fault. He's a kid!
Oh, Jennifer, Jennifer.
A kid, Daniel.
Okay, okay, okay, maybe it is her fault, and he is a kid with a troubled past, but he ended up sleeping with his girlfriend's mother. Doesn't he need to just process that? And isn't it unfair to Paige to let just her think that, "oh, you know, they just hit a little bump in the road. Everything's peachy now"?
Don't you dare talk about my son like that.
You mean honestly? When he was on drugs, and when he got arrested, you looked right at him, and you didn't deny anything, and that is love, Jennifer, real love, and that's what got him out of that downward spiral.
It is the same thing.
No, it is not.
It is not even close...
of course it is.
To the same thing, Daniel!
Of course it is! When he was using, you didn't just say, "oh, it's the drug dealer's fault." You could have, but JJ needed you to be honest with him, and he needs that right now.
This is none of your business.
Well, JJ thought it was.
No, you pried it out of him! You made him tell you everything.
No, I didn't do that. I figured it out. And other people, including Paige, will figure it out too. The whole situation is a time bomb. And you, you know it!
You want to know what I know? After everything that we have been through, if you cannot respect my wishes, I don't even want to be your friend anymore, okay?
Okay, Jennifer-- so wherever this leaves our friendship...
I also know that you couldn't be so cruel as to destroy me... or destroy my son. And if you tell Paige the truth, that's exactly what you're gonna be doing.
Yay, game night, so much fun. .
Hey, Greg, I have the patient's plasma, so we can find out if she was pregnant.
Hey. Hey. Hi, sorry. Listen, I know you have the day off, right?
How do you know that?
Because I'm the one that made it happen.
Why did you do that?
Because I have a surprise planned for you, but you're gonna want to get changed, so we need to get you home so you can change.
So... my issues with Xander go back to when he was running that charity back in Africa.
He was supposed to be helping people. I mean, I'm sure he was.
After you went back to the states, I...got to know him, and the more I got to know him, the less I liked him. He was just so smug about his position. I didn't feel like his heart was in the right place.
And now that he knows Nicole, a person who really, really hates me, I just-- I'd really rather you not do this dinner/get-together thing that Xander keeps talking about.
I mean, I don't want to tell you what to do. And if that's okay with you--
Right. Why don't we just forget about Xander and Nicole? 'Cause if there's anyone I want to have dinner with, I want it to be with you.
Now, let's get out of here, go to my place. Mmm. Gonna show me your etchings?
Something like that.
She saw this, JJ! She saw your damn jacket!
Why the hell did I have to take that damned coat?
It's 'cause of you that Paige and I are back together.
Oh, God, I hope that's not true.
Oh, no, but it is. The day I played at the college music showcase and you ripped into me, Paige came to my defense.
Right, because you needed protection from me, you being a wimp and everything.
Yeah, and after that, things changed. We started to work through our problems, and now we're back on track.
Good for you.
So you were wrong about me not working things out. And now Paige and I are gonna be really happy together.
I'm so happy for you.
So tell me, what lucky guy are you seeing these days?
Hey. Dr. Jonas, didn't you get the message?
Your surgery was canceled.
Oh, this day just keeps getting better and better.
Hey, you. You're just in time to take me to lunch.
Oh, hi. Thank you for meeting me.
No problem. Is there something you wanted to talk to me about?
Uh, well, nothing specific, really, I just-- I wanted to see how things were going with you and JJ, if I'm not butting in.
[Laughs] Oh, no, it's okay. Things are going great.
Good, so you're happy. That means a lot to me.
I really thought the two of you deserved a second chance.
Well, we got one.
You know, honey, I want to thank you for not giving up on him after he made a terrible, terrible mistake.
Well, you got me to rethink things, and now, I'm glad I did. I'll be honest, it wasn't easy.
No, I know that.
Especially after he was with that... other girl, whoever she was. Anyway, thank you for helping me.
I haven't done all that much.
[Laughs] That's not true and you know it.
Ah, ah, ah, ah, hold on a second. Is that what I think it is?
Yes, it's from the mission in Africa. Father Umana gave it to me.
[Chuckles] It was on his desk, right?
Right. It dates back to the 1800s.
I want you to have it. I know you had your heart set on the elephant piece, but this piece... it's part of "my peace," and I hope that it brings you the same good fortune it brought me.
I don't deserve this. Or you.
Well, you're stuck with us both.
I didn't know I could feel like this.
I'm not discussing my personal life with you.
Which means you've got nobody. I guess the word's out what you're really like.
Listen, I don't need a lecture from a sleazy little twerp like you. And your happiness with Paige, it's gonna be short-lived because you're not smart enough to cover up what a little jerk you really are.
Well, you know what, I know I'm not the greatest guy in the world, but unlike you, Paige makes me a better person. She cares about me and she loves me, and it's an amazing feeling. It's too bad no one ever has or ever will feel that way about you, Theresa.
Listen, I love surprises as much as the next person, especially from you, but I have so much stuff to do.
How could you have stuff to do if you were supposed to work?
Right. Well, it just-- it builds up.
Okay, okay, well, the stuff, it was going to wait while you worked, so it can wait till after my surprise. Unless you want to tell me what all this stuff is that's so urgent that you have to--
No, no, you're right, I'm being obsessive. It's--so what's the surprise? Where are we going?
You're gonna find out, but it's gonna be all day, and it's gonna be overnight as well.
Over--it's overnight too?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. So we should go to my place, grab my bag, and then we're gonna go to your place and we're gonna pack.
We're gonna get out of here. - I-I just don't--I--
Mel, Mel, look at me. Honey, I want to do this, okay? It's important to me.
Okay, yeah. Well, let's go back to your place then. Let's go.
[Sighs] Look, you did help. You're the one who told me that JJ wasn't himself when he was seeing that other girl.
No! You're right, he wasn't.
You know, I'm still a little unclear on what really happened.
I mean, honey, I just think it's pretty straightforward. You know, he thought that he had lost you, and he was in reaction. But now that the two of you are moving forward, you don't even have to look back.
Uh, I'm sorry, I really need to go.
Oh, before you go, I just want to say, I'm sorry you were fighting with Daniel.
I'm sorry you had to hear that.
Well, I sure didn't mean to walk in on it.
Oh, no, it's really--it was nothing for you to worry about. It...it's just tricky sometimes to... move from being pretty close to just being friends, and you know, even the best of friends have a falling-out now and then.
Look, I know it's none of my business, but maybe if you told me what it was about, I could help you like you helped me.
Honey, that is so sweet, but really it's-- it was a hospital thing, it was nothing, and I just-- I really need to go.
Honestly? I don't think so. I think you just lied to me. But why? Oh. You smug son of a bitch. Oh, you just love that your sainted wife is putting the screws to me, don't you?
I've got to get JJ away from Paige, and out of our lives for good.
Ugh, I can't breathe. Gotta get out of here. I need a drink.
Look, I'm glad you're here. I was gonna text you.
Well, you can tell me everything at lunch.
Look, I don't think I'm gonna be able to do lunch.
Okay. Something's bothering you, isn't it?
Are you sure you don't want to talk about it?
Oof. I--no, I can't.
But I just heard the nurse say that your surgery was canceled.
Yeah, yeah, but I'm just not gonna be good company today. I'm--
and of course you couldn't possibly tell me why, and I couldn't be of any help at all.
Okay, you couldn't, that's just a fact, so don't take this personally. Just respect that I can't, okay, and for once, can you just-- can you just respect me?
Here we go again. I do respect you, and you've taken my genuine concern and you've turned it against me. I'm not being nice, I'm interfering. "Nicole, it doesn't concern you, so butt out."
Okay, okay, here we go again. Once again, you're making it about yourself.
Of course it's about me. You won't make anything about us. You won't let there be an "us."
All right, Nicole, I--
You know what, I think I finally get it. I irritate you when I try to be your friend. And you're carrying whatever heavy burden you've decided to carry this time, and you've holed it up inside your complicated head. You know what, I'm done. I'm done getting slapped on the wrist for caring about you.
[Knocking at the door]
No, I should see who it is.
[Sighs] Fine. I'll go make it look like we weren't doing what we were just doing.
Tuck in your shirt.
Hey. Sorry to just drop by, but I wanted to set up that dinner. Let's carve something in stone, huh?
Well, look who's here. Oh, wow. I'm sorry. Clearly this is bad timing. I'll beat a hasty retreat. Oh, Serena, I did send you that thing that you needed to go forward with the article.
Great, I'll confirm that I received it.
Well, carry on.
Eric: That wasn't too awkward. I mean, you two seem to be okay with each other.
We are, it's just-- it's just?
You know what? I don't want to talk about Xander. Truth to be told, I don't want to do any talking at all.
Wow, Jorge, you are into some really weird stuff. Okay, where the hell are these performance review forms? Okay.
What are you doing here?
Oh, come on, like you don't know. I was looking for the performance review forms.
Yeah, they're not done, and I'll drop them off when they are.
And a little tip. If a grown man has stuffed animals, he might want to keep it a secret.
Wait a minute. You were just on my computer. You don't have access. What were you doing?
Nothing. Why the hell would I go on your computer?
Okay, I'm gonna run up, grab my bag, we'll get going.
Great. Okay, I have to get you to the lab. Brady's obviously not gonna leave my side, so I--I'll call Serena, and I'll have her create a diversion, give me, like, an hour maybe. Oh, God.
Hey, how you doing?
Fine, but I'm running late. I have to pick up some old notes and books for my eastern Civ paper. They're still at mom's. Could you meet me there and help me get them in the car?
You really think that's a good idea?
Well, my mom won't be there.
But first, you think you might want to call your mom.
Well, I went to return one of parker's toys, and I accidentally walked in on your mom and Daniel having this huge fight. I mean, your mom said it was no big deal, but I'm telling you, JJ, it was. She was really upset.
Um, did you hear what they were fighting about?
Well, I just heard your mom telling Daniel to keep his mouth shut. JJ, I wasn't eavesdropping. The door was open.
Oh, you know what? My mom just pulled up. Let me-- I'll catch you later. Right, bye.
Wow. Jennifer was telling Daniel to keep his mouth shut?
I didn't see you. Mom, I really didn't want anyone to know about that.
No, I could care less about Daniel or...Jennifer. I'm just surprised that they're at each other's throats, that's all.
Well, I didn't say that.
Well, honey, for Jennifer Horton to say "shut up" to anybody is like me saying, you know, that word that I won't even say around you.
Okay, listen, I have to go pick up some stuff before my next class, so I have to go.
[Sighs] There's something I need to take care of myself.
We both know if I get my money, you'll get your diamonds.
I don't know that.
Oh, yes, you do. Because you know that I know what happens to people when they double-cross you.
Serena, what's wrong?
Is this who I think it is?
Nicole: Yes. I think maybe we should have that coffee after all.
Sounds great to me.
I wasn't on your lame computer. Let me break it down for you. You're boring, what you do is boring, and therefore, what's on your computer must be boring.
[Scoffs] Ugh, God, I hate whimsy.
If it wasn't her...
Melanie. What's wrong?
[Sighs] It's china. I'm so sorry. There's a problem with the new plant, and I have to take care of this, and I'm gonna have to cancel.
I was just getting excited.
It's okay. We can rain check.
Okay. Thank you. I'm sorry. Thank you for understanding.
No, no, no, it's fine, it's okay.
I gotta call Hong Kong. Reverse the charges, though. Make sure they do that.
[Laughs] I owe you, thank you.
Oh, shoot. Oh! So he's...worried about Paige, and--
Just reminds him of what happened with Chloe.
Mom, I am so sorry, about everything. I don't want you two fighting. You said he wouldn't promise not to tell anyone?
Listen, honey, he's just absorbing it all. You know, we got in a fight, he's angry at me, but I know Daniel. He hates this, but he doesn't want to hurt you, so he'll live with it.
You think so?
Yeah, I do. Unless he's provoked.
Good move, Jonas. You're in a foul mood, and you take it out on Nicole. [Scoffs] Oy.
[Sighs] I know now how much he loves it.
Yeah, he does. Thank you.
[Knocking at the door]
There's no use pretending, Daniel. I can tell by the look on your face, you know about me and-- JJ.
You're damn right I do.
Okay. Mom, where did you put my stuff?
