Melanie: [Inhales deeply] Hey, Brady. What's up?
Brady: Hey. Hey, Mel, listen, I need to see you. It's very important.
Paul: Then tell me you don't still love me.
Sonny: Paul, don't do this.
Paul: Look, I've been completely honest with you about how I feel.
Sonny: I know.
Paul: Don't you think that I deserve the same thing?
Will: Well, look who's here. Does anybody want to tell me what the hell is going on?
Chad: Father, why are you so interested in whether or not I get back together with Abigail?
Stefano: Are you saying that you are not in love with her?
Abigail: You're not saying anything. So that means you did know? You knew about JJ and eve?
Jennifer: Yeah... I knew.
Abigail: For how long?
Abigail: What? You've been living with this for months? Why in god's name would JJ ever tell you? I mean, that's so unfair.
Jennifer: JJ didn't tell me. I found him and eve.
Abigail: Found them?
Jennifer: In bed.
Eve: Like this is gonna help.
[Cell phone rings]
Eve: Paige? Paige?
Theresa: No, it's me, with great news. Hey, I just got the okay, and you can come down for a visit. They're about to bring Tate in for his feeding. Oh, but, hey, wear dark glasses because he is dazzling. [Giggles]
Eve: I can't.
Theresa: Why not?
Eve: I have other things going on.
Theresa: What could be more important than seeing my son?
Paige: It's a simple question, JJ, okay? Why did you sleep with my mother? Okay, then.
JJ: No, d-d-don't go. I don't want to lie to you anymore. I can't, and I'll tell you everything. It's-- but--
Paige: But what?
JJ: It's all so complicated.
Paige: It's comp--
JJ: Okay, it'll take time, and I don't think that there's any way that you or anyone else can understand it, 'cause I don't understand it myself, but all I could s--
Paige: Come on. You slept with my mother, and you can't tell me why?
JJ: I thought I'd lost you forever, Paige.
Sonny: Nothing is going on. Paul's trying to explain to me what happened.
Will: You mean when he hit me in the face while our daughter was in the next room.
Sonny: Hey, just take it easy.
Will: Take it easy. Take it easy. Yeah, I guess I'm being overly sensitive. It's just I come here to see you, and I find you here with him, alone. So what I'd like to know, sonny, is what kind of lies he's feeding you about me now?
Sonny: Damn it, will, just stop. Just stop it.
Melanie: Um... I'm not coming in today. I'm going to take a little time off.
Brady: It's no problem. I'll come to you.
Melanie: No, no, no, you need to stay at the hospital with Theresa and the baby.
Brady: Melanie... I need to be there for you. Like I said, this is important for both of us.
Melanie: Okay, but now's not A... really good time.
Theresa: You know what? You need to lighten up. Hey, look, why don't you whip up a batch of martinis and then bring 'em down in the thermos?
Eve: You know what, Theresa? You have a baby now. Your life can no longer be a 24-7 frat party.
Eve: You know what? You need to be careful, damn careful... because you could lose it all in an instant, honey.
Theresa: Where the hell is this coming from, eve? When did you turn into saint Monica? Ugh.
Anne: So, bubelah, how's mother of the year?
Chad: Am I not supposed to notice that you just dodged my question with a question?
Stefano: I want to know how you're feeling.
Chad: What you're doing is changing the subject. And what you're not doing is telling me what you get out of me being with Abigail Deveraux.
Stefano: I get to see the only child I have left be happy. I won't let anyone or anything stand in the way of that.
Jennifer: When I saw her... in that bed with JJ, I was so angry. And I wasn't just angry at her. I was furious with myself.
Abigail: What? Why?
Jennifer: Because I knew that she hated me... and I knew that she had done so many things in my past to hurt me, and I should have protected him from that.
Abigail: "Protected him"? Mom, how--how could you even think about the stupid, horrible thing that--
Jennifer: Honey, I am not excusing him. But he was weak, and she is a predator, and because of her, he thought that his life was over, and I was not gonna let her get away with that.
Abigail: He thought his life was over because he slept with the wrong person? No, mom, he thought his life was over because he knew he would lose Paige if she ever found out. So you all--you agreed to keep quiet about this, and then you didn't stop there, did you?
Jennifer: What is that supposed to mean?
Abigail: It means you didn't just agree to keep quiet about this. You didn't even think about what this was doing to Paige.
Jennifer: Yes, I did.
Abigail: No, you didn't, mom. Everything that you did or didn't do, it was all for JJ. Oh, my god.
Abigail: Oh, my god, I just remembered. That must've been when you found out. I was there. I was in your office that day, and you were so upset about something, and I asked you about it, and you told me that you couldn't tell me what it was, but that JJ-- he really needed our support and that we had to have his back
Jennifer: Yes, he did, yes.
Abigail: And then you just-- you just went back to work. You were determined to make it like nothing ever happened. You were going to make sure that JJ and Paige got back together, to hell with what that might do to Paige.
JJ: Do you remember what it was like for both of us when we found out about my dad... about what he did to Kayla? It was so awful, I lied about it. So then I couldn't blame you for not believing me when you saw those picture of me and those girls. And that was the same night your mom found out that she couldn't have the operation, that she'd never sing again.
Paige: Yeah, I know. I actually remember that night.
JJ: We-- me and your mom--we were both nuts that night, and I'd been drinking, and then I had a brilliant idea to come and find you so that I could explain, and I went to your apartment, but your mom was there, and she was crying, and everything seemed so awful.
Paige: So you went to bed together. Yeah, that makes sense.
JJ: Paige, that was the worst mistake I have ever made, and I have been trying to find a way to fix it ever since.
Paige: Really? Because you didn't make that mistake just once, did you, hmm? I know you didn't. How many times was it, JJ, hmm? Just how many mistakes did you and mommy dearest make?
Chad: I mean, I don't know, I'm still getting mixed signals from Abigail, and then she's obviously still with Ben, so... I don't know--I don't think there's anything you can do to help me.
Stefano: Never doubt yourself, huh? You are going to succeed. And now I have to go.
Chad: Well, thank you for bringing Marlena home.
Chad: And for your support with Abigail.
Stefano: You see, don't you, huh? I will do anything for my son.
Abigail: Mom, you had to know that there was a chance Paige would find out about this. You had to have known that. So you set this up so that she would already be back in love with JJ when she did find out. Did it ever occur to you, mom, that Paige thought she was starting her new life with the man of her dreams? You didn't just keep quiet about this, mom. You lied.
Jennifer: I didn't see it that way.
Abigail: I understand JJ's desperation to hold on to Paige. I do., I get it. He's a kid. He loved her. He's terrified of losing her, but you, mom... why you went along with this sick deception... I will never understand that.
[Knock at door]
Melanie: [Exhales deeply, sniffles] [Sighs]
Maxine: Well, I certainly hope you have a good excuse for just taking off from work and not filling out a personal leave request.
Maxine: Well, I guess tracking down a sociopathic kidnapper and returning a baby to its parents works... just this once.
Melanie: I won't let it happen again.
Maxine: Did I ever tell you you were my hero?
Melanie: I just did what was right.
Maxine: Then why are you crying, sweetheart?
Anne: I just saw the baby. How lucky is that guy? His daddy is rich and his mama is good-looking.
Theresa: Wait, wait. Did you just say that you saw the baby with your own eyes?
Anne: Uh, yeah, I just said, "I saw the baby."
Theresa: Oh, see? I was telling the truth. I was pregnant.
Anne: Yes, it seems you were. Whatever. Now you have Brady black's son, Victor Kiriakis's great-grandson. I mean, he's one of the richest men in the country.
Theresa: Oh, my god, Anne, that totally slipped my mind.
Brady: Ha ha. You two seem to be in a really good mood.
Theresa: Um, yeah, you know what? Gosh, it is so much more than that. I am--I think this is the happiest I have ever been.
Eve: Please, just-- what am I doing? She's not going to answer me. Oh, my god, where is she? Where is she? Where is she? Where is she? Where'd she go? Did she go to the Horton's? I swear to god, if JJ lied his way out of this... my god, I will kill him!
JJ: I'm not going to hide anything from you, 'cause I owe you the truth.
Paige: At long last, the truth.
JJ: Last Christmas, when you were in California, I had it out with your mom, about how she was lying to you about your grandfather dying. I found out that she wanted you to move out there, to keep you away from me forever. And then she threatened to tell you everything. She said that she would rather lose you herself than let you get back with me.
Paige: So you kept sleeping with her to keep her mouth shut?
JJ: Paige, I thought that I had lost you forever. I thought that I was never going to see you again. You know that.
Paige: I do. But you still haven't answered my question. In fact, I'm more confused than I was before. If you were so angry with her, so upset that she was so ready to tell me the truth, then why did you sleep with her again... and then again and again?
Theresa: I am so looking forward to his next feeding. Hey, you know, um, if you want, you could feed him. I mean, that's why you're here, right?
Brady: Actually, I had to let you know that I was going to step out for a little while.
Brady: Yeah, there's something I got to do.
Theresa: Oh, I thought you didn't have to work.
Brady: It's--it's personal.
Theresa: Right. So, yeah, of course. Sorry. Yeah.
Melanie: Before you got here, I was thinking about, um... how I was raised and how screwed up I was because of Trent, and I was thinking about, what if I had had my mom and dad there? [Crying] Or just my mom or just my dad, how different everything would have been. I would've been a better person. Maybe I wouldn't have done all of the screwed-up things that I've done.
Maxine: What's making you think about all this now?
Will: Stop? I'm supposed to stop? He has made it clear that he wants you back.
Paul: That's right. Now more than ever.
Sonny: Oh, don't do that. You're gonna make it worse. Come on!
Hey, sonny. Somebody hacked into the computer system.
Sonny: All right, I'll be right there. I think you should go.
Will: I don't. I think that he and I have some issues that we need to resolve.
Sonny: All right, well, keep it down, 'cause this isn't a locker room.
Will: So there's something you wanted to tell me about sonny.
Paul: Only that we weren't talking about you.
Paul: Hmm, I'd be careful using that word if I was you.
Will: Okay, so, if you're not talking about me, then what were you talking about?
Paul: I just asked sonny if he was still in love with me.
Paige: See, maybe... maybe I can understand once. I mean, I really can't, but for the sake of argument, you were both sad, and so, you know, you decided to comfort each other. But after that, after that, JJ? You know what? How about we put a pin in it, huh? Yeah, how about some numbers? How many times was it, hmm? Okay, there was the first time, when you decided to bury your grief in my mother, but then after that, huh, what, two times? Four? Five? What, whenever you guys could both find some spare time?
JJ: It wasn't like that, Paige.
Paige: Then what was it like, JJ? What? She hates you, and you wanted her?
JJ: I don't know what I wanted. I felt like such a screw-up because I ruined it all with you.
Paige: Oh, yeah, tell me more about your pain.
JJ: You know, I don't expect you to forgive me, but you can't possibly hate me as much as I hate myself.
Paige: Don't be too sure about that.
JJ: No matter how much I screwed up or how I screwed up... I do love you. Paige, you have to believe that.
Paige: Actually, I do.
Abigail: Mom, I love you, and... I always will love you. And trust me, I haven't forgotten about all the times you've stood by me when I've screwed up, but... it's just... this just doesn't seem like you.
Jennifer: Well, I haven't... felt like myself since that day.
Abigail: I need to get some air.
Anne: Um, you do know where he's going--
Theresa: Yes, Anne, I know where he's going, yes, okay? What am I supposed to do, tell him to stay away from the woman who got us our son back? I have to act like I'm fine with it, you know, like I'm nice.
Anne: Yeah. No, I know. That's a real stretch for you.
Kimberly: Oh, my, there's the new mother.
Theresa: Mom, what are you doing here?
Kimberly: I thought that'd be obvious. I came to see my grandson.
Theresa: Well... [Clears throat] The baby's in isolation.
Kimberly: Okay. Um, so... I'll take care of you-- excuse me. I'll take care of you until I can take care of him. Jeannie--
Kimberly: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, little baby girl. My darling, my sweet baby, come here, come here. The ordeal you've been through, Theresa. My sweet girl.
Anne: [Mouths word]
Will: Can you tell me why you're doing this?
Paul: Because of you. You were the one that informed me of my father's history with your grandmother. They tried to pretend that their love would just go away, and we all know that did not work.
Will: Yeah, but there is a big difference, Paul. Sonny doesn't love you. He loves me.
Paul: And you're so sure of that that you cheated on him. Then you blackmailed my mother to try and get me out of town so that I wouldn't find out about my father.
Will: That is not what happened.
Paul: And to make things even worse, you called my mother a whore. But, see, sonny knows that. He knows why I punched you. And if you keep lying and pushing me, I swear to god, I will tell sonny about the blackmail too.
Will: Paul, wait. Please.
Chad: Abigail. You're upset.
Abigail: No, fine. Really, it's nothing for you to worry about.
Chad: I'll never forget that you were there for me after I found out my sister died... how great you were to me. Please, if you want to talk, I am here for you.
Jennifer: Go away.
Eve: Looks like the party's over. What happened?
Jennifer: What happened? You came back to Salem and proceeded to destroy everything in your path, including my son and your own daughter.
Eve: Oh, well, that's new... blaming me for everything.
Jennifer: Who else would I blame, eve?
Eve: JJ. He barged into my house and tried to blackmail me.
Jennifer: Well, maybe you wouldn't get blackmailed if you didn't sleep with your daughter's boyfriend.
Eve: Oh, you always were a smug, little brat. Now you've managed to produce two more just like you. Well, you know what? This isn't about JJ trying to blackmail me. This is about him being so damn stupid that he didn't even bother to see if Paige might have been listening in the next room while the boy that she loved went chapter and verse of what he'd done to her mother.
Jennifer: Right, and that's not all she heard, was it? You're also the one who planted drugs in his backpack.
Eve: No, no, I didn't!
Jennifer: No, you got someone to do it for you. Did you pay him to do it or let him take it out in trade?
Eve: Okay, Jennifer, you know what? We hate each other--fine. But this isn't about us. I came here because I want to know where my daughter is. So, please, can you just tell me where Paige is?
Paige: Yeah... you heard me. I think you do love me. Lucky me.
Paige: No. You always do all the talking, okay? It's my turn. I never thought you were lying about your feelings for me. That's why, even when I knew you'd been with someone else, I forgave you. But when you screwed up with my mother, I think that even you realized that that'd be tough to forgive... even for a wimp like me. So you told me all kinds of lies and told me how much you loved me over and over again. Even today, when you were trying to blackmail my mother, trying to send her to jail? All so that you could just keep me in the dark. So that I wouldn't find out what you did, who you are. Well, that might be what love means to you, JJ, but that's not love to me.
Paige: No, no, no. Just stay back and listen, okay? Because there's one more thing you need to hear that I do believe about you.
Will: Paul, you're right. I did terrible things. I was wrong. But I was scared to death of losing sonny.
Paul: If sonny loves you...
Will: He does.
Paul: Then how could you possibly lose him?
Will: How? Maybe his first love, the man that got away comes back into his life, and now this man is some kind of gay icon.
Paul: If you think that sonny would choose me over you over some superficial things... [Scoffs] You don't know your husband at all.
Abigail: After all the things I've done, I'M... I'm in no position to judge anyone.
Chad: You made one mistake with EJ. No one thinks any less of you for that. I don't anymore. Ben certainly doesn't. I mean, who in their life has not made a mistake? Hmm?
Abigail: My mom. Maybe it's not fair to her, but... you know, I've always... I always put her in this different category. She's so... honest and up front about the big mistakes she's made when she was younger, and she's learned from them, and she's grown, and she's an amazing mom to me and to JJ. I love her. I respect her.
Chad: Of course. Has that changed?
Eve: Is Paige with JJ?
Jennifer: I don't know.
Eve: Can you please just tell me what you do know?
Jennifer: It's bad. It is everything that we didn't want to happen. So you've lost her, eve... forever.
Paige: You're right about one thing. You are messed up, but you're smart, cunning. You don't try to cover it up. You play it, huh? Yeah. You're so "misunderstood." You feel too deeply. My god. What, you need your music to express how you feel? And stupid girls, nice girls just eat it all up.
JJ: No, you are not stupid.
Paige: Ready to go off into the sunset with someone who sleeps with my mother? Not exactly shrewd.
JJ: Paige, you are special.
Paige: No, no, I was just what you were looking for, but I am--I am done with that girl, okay? She's gone.
JJ: No, don't say that. Look, my god, I have done some terrible things, but if-- if I have changed who you are, that's, like, the worst thing ever--
Paige: Oh, and you're so sorry, right, huh? Yeah. And I--and I should forgive you, right? I should try to save you again? I need to save myself.
JJ: No, look, I'm not trying to get you to forgive me, okay? It's not possible, 'cause what I did was so wrong.
Paige: You think?
JJ: But if you'd let me... I will do anything, anything to make things right.
Paige: Then I'm going to take you up on that.
Kimberly: Sometimes it helps having somebody around who's already been through it...
Theresa: Yeah, okay.
Kimberly: Who knows how profoundly it's going to change your life. It's a new responsibility. It's--it's a new--it's a new life, and you didn't even know you were pregnant.
Theresa: You say that like it's my fault, like maybe I should've known. Mom, I--
Kimberly: No, I didn't say that at all, honey. I'm saying that, for months, when a woman's carrying a baby, it's special.
Theresa: Yeah, and I didn't get that time, mom.
Kimberly: I know you didn't. That's my point. It was robbed. You were robbed of that time, and you didn't know if the baby was even--
Theresa: Okay, what, are you saying that he wasn't wanted?
Kimberly: I didn't say that.
Theresa: 'Cause he's wanted.
Kimberly: You didn't even let me finish what I was going to say. I said he wasn't planned. I said "planned."
Theresa: You know what, mom? This is exactly why I didn't want you here, because you've been here less than five minutes, and I already feel like I've done everything wrong, like I've messed up everything, but you know what? Tate is the very best thing that I have ever done in my entire life.
Melanie: That's not fair. Every--every child deserves to be happy and to have a good start, you know?
Maxine: No matter what you ever did, you have redeemed yourself in every sense of the word.
[Knock at door]
Melanie: That's probably-- that's probably Brady.
Maxine: And I am out of here.
Maxine: That baby of yours is gorgeous.
Brady: [Chuckles] Thank you. [Sighs] You have no idea how much I've missed you.
Melanie: Actually, I think I do.
Brady: Come here.
Eve: Mm-mm, mm-mm, no. That's not true. Mm-mm, I have not lost my daughter. I can't. I won't. Just tell me where JJ is, okay?
Jennifer: I know how this is tearing everyone apart.
Eve: Did he manage to weasel out of this one just like he always does when he hurts my daughter? Oh, and I bet he convinced her that it was all my fault, right? So she'll still run off to California with him or wherever else they want to go?
Jennifer: Unbelievable. You do this to your daughter, and you blame JJ. Once and for all, get out of my house!
Eve: No matter what happens, no matter what that boy does, you're there to love and comfort and abet that little criminal son of yours.
Jennifer: Yeah, yeah, you're right. Deal with it.
Eve: It's just wrong. It's just wrong. You get to keep your child while I lose mine.
Paige: Here's what you can do for me-- never call me, never text me. Never friend me, never come near me again, because I don't want anything to do with you, okay? Ever.
JJ: Paige, I can't live without you.
Paige: Go for it. Oh, come on, you'll be fine. You'll find someone like Bev or Roxanne or my pathetic bitch of a mother. There will always be someone there to comfort you in that special way you like so much, and they'll accept your lies... at least for a while. But maybe, eventually, one day you'll end up alone, because when you do the things that you do to people that you love... even the stupidest girl will eventually wake up and walk away, which is what I am going to do now.
Theresa: Mom, it's Theresa.
Kimberly: Theresa, your father and I are on your side, yours and Tate's.
Theresa: Oh, really? That's great. I can tell how excited dad is about it. Oh, wait. He's not here.
Kimberly: Stop it. There's a reason for that.
Kimberly: Yeah. He's doing everything in his power to solve your legal problems back home.
Theresa: I... I don't think I understand what you're saying.
Brady: So, as great as it's been to be with Tate, and it's been great...
Melanie: Yeah. [Giggles]
Brady: It's been killing me how little time we've gotten to spend together, and that's why I'm not going to be able to do this the way I wanted to do it.
Melanie: Do what?
Brady: I wanted it to be big, huge, spectacular--skywriting, fireworks, I don't know, something like that.
Melanie: What are you-- I have no idea what you're talking about.
Brady: It's got to be here, and it's got to be now, 'cause I don't want to waste one more second. You need to know how I feel about you.
Will: Look, I'm sorry about what just happened. I should've remembered that after last night, we've reconnected. I shouldn't have gone off on Paul again.
Sonny: I think we need to talk about that.
Will: Me too. I have to get back to work right now, though.
Sonny: The article on Clyde Weston.
Will: Right, I'll see you at home later tonight. We'll talk about it then. Or... whatever.
Stefano: There's still time for you to win her, my son... for the family.
Abigail: Something happened with my mom, and I... I was pretty rough on her, and I shouldn't have been. I should have been more supportive. I should've... should've been less judgmental.
Chad: You'll work it out.
Abigail: Yeah, but I... you know, I do this. I-I make these snap judgments about people, and then I turn my back on them, and it's not fair. It's not right. I wasn't fair to you, Chad.
Eve: Your son was right there beside me in that bed, and nobody held a gun to his head. Yeah, that's the boy that you raised, Jennifer, so you can stand there, and you can judge me--
Jennifer: I told you to get out of my house, now.
Eve: You are the one that helped him win Paige back, and all that hurt her even more, so you know what? You're not blameless in all this, and your son, he's damn good at zipping up and moving on, but my daughter, who actually does have a soul, is lost, is devastated, and nobody deserves that kind of hurt. Nobody, especially not my beautiful daughter.
Jennifer: No. She didn't deserve any of this.
Eve: "She didn't deserve any of this"? A slight emphasis on "she," with a strong implication that I did? [Scoffs] God. Another smug, condescending pronouncement by the great Jennifer Horton. God, I hate you. And I cannot believe that, once again, you have gotten away with everything, just like you always do. And I lose the one... the one good thing... that has ever happened to me.
Eve: [Sighs] Okay. No, no, no, she is not getting away with this. She is not.
JJ: Paige, please--
Paige: Oh, go to hell. Or go back to my mother. I really don't care. Just stay away from me. No. You know what? Just one more thing-- you know, you never did answer my question. How could you do this to me? Do you even understand why I'm hurting so much? It's because you made me love you, even when you knew it was wrong, even when you knew you should have walked away, vanished from my life forever. And now... I hope you do.
Paige: Oh, no, no, go write a song about how sad you are, how your heart's broken into a million little pieces. Hey, it'll probably get you laid.
Kimberly: Oh, I know, my sweet girl. I know all this has been overwhelming for you. I know. Honey, it's gonna be okay.
Kimberly: It's gonna be okay. You and Tate are gonna go back to California with me as soon as possible. Yes! Your dad and I are gonna take care of you, my precious girl. Your dad and I are gonna help you raise that precious little boy.
Kimberly: Oh, it's all gonna be just fine, honey. You'll see. It's all being taken care of, even as we speak.
Melanie: [Sobs softly]
Brady: You know, it's not often that you're totally speechless.
Brady: But for once, it's okay. Mel, just look at me. Smile that beautiful smile of yours, and... I'll know your answer.
Melanie: Oh, my god.
Brady: Melanie Jonas... will you marry me?
