Chad: When I look into your eyes, I see something that no one else sees or understands. Look, no-- that is exactly why it is gonna make it even better when it does happen.
Abigail: No, no, no.
Chad: Yes, yes, yes.
Zoe: Penny for your thoughts.
Chad: No DiMera is ever gonna sell anything that cheap.
Zoe: Then I guess I'll just have to up my offer.
Abigail: Ben, is something wrong? Getting back together? Chad, are you serious? We never could have had anything!
Chad: That's not what you thought when we were here on this lawn. Or when I took you upstairs to my bedroom where you begged-- begged me--to keep making love to you over and over again.
Ben: You tell me.
Serena: Is she...?
Daniel: I can't find a pulse. Nicole. Nicole! Hey, hey.
Brady: Daniel, how is she?
Daniel: She's burning up. Completely unresponsive. Serena, how's Eric? He still have a pulse?
Serena: I--I don't know. Eric, please, come on.
Brady: Come on, hey.
Serena: Come on, Eric. Come on, come on, come on. He's opening his eyes!
Brady: There he is, there he is.
Serena: Thank god. Thank god.
Eric: Get her away! Get her away from me!
Brady: Take it easy, hey! It's okay, it's okay.
Brady: [Grunts] All right, all right.
Daniel: Nothing. All right, come on, Nicole. Come on. I'm here, but you gotta help me, baby.
Brady: The furnace is shut down, okay?
Daniel: All right, do anything to cool this room down and try and find me some cold water. I have got to get her body temperature--
Brady: Okay, okay, I'm on it, I'm on it.
Daniel: Okay, I won't have it, do you hear me? Nicole! Hey, baby, I am not gonna lose you. I am not gonna lose you. Come on, Nicole. Come on.
Daniel: Don't you give up. Don't you give up, Nicole. Hey. Here she comes. Look at me. Hey, that's it, come on. Come on. That's a girl. That's my girl, yeah.
Serena: Eric, I am so sorry. Please, Eric, please talk to me.
Eric: I said--I said go!
Zoe: You seem a million miles away.
Chad: DiMera's negotiating an acquisition. I was just thinking about that.
Zoe: Oh, I see. Hmm.
Harold: The hors d'oeuvres are prepared, sir.
Chad: Can you just bring it out here?
Harold: Of course, sir.
Chad: And bring miss Zoe browning whatever she's drinking.
Zoe: Champagne, please.
Harold: Very good.
Chad: Thank you, Harold. Great dress.
Zoe: Thank you. And thank you for making time to meet with me tonight. I didn't realize you were so busy.
Chad: Well, I thought it was important. Sonix's first edition with DiMera on the masthead was pretty much a flop.
Zoe: I agree, it was a bad cover story.
Chad: Mm-hmm. And I know it wasn't your idea to write the article on Clyde Weston.
Zoe: No, it wasn't. But you know what was my idea?
Zoe: Was to do that cover story on you. Actually, it was the first idea I had when I went to Sonix from TruVista. And I have to say, it worked out pretty great.
Chad: Which is exactly why I've spoken to my father about giving you more say on all of the big decisions.
Chad: Well, you don't seem too enthusiastic.
Zoe: I just didn't realize that tonight was going to be all about business.
Chad: Well, what'd you think it was gonna be about?
Abigail: I don't-- I don't know what to say, Ben. Obviously you're upset about something.
Ben: No, you just surprised me, that's all. I didn't even get a chance to finish cleaning this place up.
Abigail: Ben, come on, your place is spotless.
Ben: So how'd it go with your mom?
Abigail: You know, actually I--I didn't even get a chance to talk to her.
Ben: So she doesn't know that you're moving in with me?
Abigail: No, she doesn't know yet.
Ben: What happened? You change your mind?
Abigail: No, I didn't change my mind about moving in with you.
Ben: So how come you didn't talk to your mom? Did you have something else to do?
Abigail: I wanted to talk to you first. I've been doing some thinking.
Ben: You look so serious.
Abigail: Well, this is serious. Ben, I can't--I can't commit to moving in with you until I tell you, so I just hope you'll understand.
Brady: Hey, hey, hey. Hey, buddy, you're gonna be okay. Listen, listen, listen, the ambulance is coming.
Brady: All right, the furnace is shut off. You came to pretty quickly. That's good.
Brady: She's right over there. Daniel's taking care of her. She's fine.
Eric: I want to see her.
Brady: No, that's--hey, hey! Buddy, buddy, save--save your energy, okay? We gotta get you to the hospital, both of you. All right, you're gonna get through this. You're fine.
Serena: God, I was so scared.
Eric: Why is she still here? Why is she still here?
Brady: Hey, stop!
Daniel: Hey, hey.
Daniel: No, no, no. No, it's Daniel. Hey, honey. Nicole, Nicole! Hey, hey, baby, hey.
John: Hey, how are they?
Daniel: Well, Eric's coming around. He should be okay. Nicole keeps slipping in and out of consciousness. They weren't breathing when we found them. Where is that damn ambulance? Come on, stay with me, baby. Stay with me. Hey. Hey.
Kayla: Hey, Daniel, what's up?
Daniel: Hey, could you check on an ambulance for me? It's coming to the titan TV building. It should have been here by now.
Kayla: Sure. Okay, uh, condition of patient?
Daniel: There are two. One's unconscious. Both with severe heat stroke.
Kayla: Okay. Names?
Daniel: Kayla, it's Nicole and your nephew. It's Eric.
Kayla: Oh, my god. I'll make sure an ambulance gets there. I'll drive it myself. We'll be ready for you.
Eric: Get her away!
Brady: Eric, Eric, calm down.
Eric: I said get her away! Get her away from me!
Brady: You should go, you should go.
Serena: He's had a rough time--they both have. Maybe he doesn't know what he's talking about.
Brady: Serena, go, please! I got this.
Eric: Go, go, go.
Brady: Shh, take it easy.
Daniel: The time is everything now. The sooner we get her body temperature down, the better chance she and Eric have. And can you do something about that ambulance, please?
Abe: Yeah, you bet I can.
Ben: Well, whatever it is, you're making it sound like something I'm not gonna like.
Abigail: Yeah, I don't think you are gonna like this, Ben. But, you know, if I moved in first and I told you after, then that just wouldn't be fair. So I hope that--I hope that we can talk about this and stay calm and, you know, reasonable, and that we can do this without it being a big fight.
Ben: How many big fights have you and I had?
Abigail: None. None. You're very understanding.
Ben: Yeah, that's me. Mr. Understanding, easygoing.
Abigail: Ben, I know who you are. You're the man I fell in love with, and I hate to tell you this, but you are not always so easygoing.
Ben: Yeah, but I've done a pretty damn good job of keeping my temper under control, right?
Ben: Right, okay then. You can let it out. I can handle the truth.
Abigail: Okay. Here it goes. Uh... I won't move in here unless you let me pay half the rent.
Chad: Love you, Harold. So if you didn't think this meeting was gonna be about business, what did you think it was gonna be about?
Zoe: Ah, it doesn't matter now. You seem to have a lot on your mind. Has anything changed since the last time we talked?
Chad: Mm, the price of DiMera stock went down on the Tokyo exchange.
Zoe: Oh, come on, that's happened before. I'm sure the company will bounce back the way it always does.
Chad: It's never happened on my watch.
Zoe: Whatever's bothering you has nothing to do with the price of DiMera stock.
Chad: Are you a mind reader?
Zoe: I have pretty good instincts about people. And when I walked in here, you were not thinking about business.
Chad: Well, what if I said I was thinking about you?
Zoe: Well, to be quite honest, it would be what I wanted to hear. The problem is, it would be a lie.
Kayla: Okay, let's get Nicole in 325 and Eric in 316.
Daniel: Okay, they both have severe heat stroke. Eric's got second-degree burns on both hands. We sprayed him down, placed ice packs and iv fluids started.
Kayla: Okay, I got dr. Myers coming in on a consult.
Daniel: Okay, all right, I want to talk to him.
Kayla: Okay, you stay with Nicole, and I'm gonna treat Eric.
Brady: Abe, listen, this was no accident. And I'm pretty sure that I know who did this, so you better get this guy or so help me, I will.
Abigail: I knew you weren't going to like it. Ben, come on, it's only fair.
Ben: That's what you were so worried about telling me? That you wanted to pay half the rent?
Abigail: Yes. Yeah, I know how you are.
Ben: How--how am I, Abigail?
Abigail: Proud. I know you would insist on paying my rent, and I know-- I know how you always want to take care of me.
Ben: You're right, you're right. I do want to take care of you. Sometimes I just--I don't always do the best of jobs... in certain ways.
Abigail: What are you talking about? Ben, are you sure everything's okay?
Ben: Why do you keep asking me that?
Abigail: I don't know, because it just--I don't know. It feels like something's off with you.
Ben: Maybe I am--maybe I am a little off. Just a little bit, because ever since you told me that you wanted to move in together, I've--I've just been on this, like, amazing high. It feels like I'm getting everything I ever wanted. But then I just started thinking.
Abigail: Did you change your mind?
Ben: Did I say that?
Abigail: No. No. Uh...
Ben: You didn't want any part of this whole idea before. And then all of a sudden, you making this big 180, I-- I just couldn't help but start wondering, what made this happen?
Chad: I pay you to edit my magazine, not to analyze my thoughts.
Zoe: Sorry, you seem bothered about something. I guess it's none of my business. I just didn't--
Chad: Didn't what?
Zoe: I just didn't like seeing you look so unhappy.
Chad: Well, why do you care about my happiness?
Zoe: I don't know. I guess I shouldn't. In fact, it was probably a mistake to come here tonight. Thanks for the champagne.
Chad: Zoe, wait.
Kayla: Are you feeling a little better?
Eric: I'm hot.
Kayla: I know. But your temperature's coming down, and your vitals are improving. You want a sip of water? Easy. There you go.
Eric: Kayla, what about Nicole?
Brady: Hey. Is she any better?
Daniel: Her temp's still 104. She's still delirious. She's not out of danger until it's below 102. She's--and her heart rate's really elevated.
Brady: Well, does she--does she need a specialist?
Daniel: Kayla called our top guy, and he told me that we did everything we could. We just need to pray that we did it soon enough.
Brady: Daniel, even if she-- even if she makes it, I mean, could something like this change who she is?
Daniel: The longer she's out of it, the greater the risk of brain damage.
Zoe: So what do you want?
Chad: You said before that if I had said that I was thinking about you that it would be what you wanted to hear.
Zoe: Yeah, and you jumped all over me.
Chad: I was in a rotten mood, and I was taking it out on you.
Zoe: Yeah, I've been coming on to you. I work for you. It's a bad idea.
Chad: Well, to be honest, I thought you were coming on to me because you worked for me.
Zoe: So in other words, I am a driven, ambitious slut?
Chad: No, Zoe--
Zoe: You know what, don't answer that. You'll have my resignation letter in the morning.
Chad: Listen, please, please, please, please. If I just promise to stop being such a jerk, can we rewind and maybe--I don't know. Can we start this evening over again?
Zoe: Not if you think the only reason I'm here is 'cause you're my boss.
Abigail: I--I realized how stupid I was being when I said I didn't want to move in with you, Ben. That's what happened. I--I came to my senses.
Ben: Are you sure you weren't just tired of hearing me whining about it? Maybe you started to feel bad for poor, loser Ben.
Abigail: Stop, what are you-- Ben, I realized how unbelievably lucky I am. That is what happened. Every relationship I have ever been in has been a mistake. They--they hurt me, and they don't take me seriously. You listen to me. You respect me. My--my mother loves you. My brother likes you, and my brother doesn't like anyone I date ever. My family loves you.
Ben: And what about you? How do you feel?
Abigail: I feel-- Ben, I want to move in with you because I know how much I love you.
Ben: Show me.
Ben: Show me how much you love me.
John: I am being honest with you, doc. Eric's not out of the woods yet. Kayla said he's responding well. You are? All right. Abe just talked to Roman. He's on his way back too. Listen, I will keep you posted if anything changes. Just try not to worry, okay? Okay.
Brady: So Daniel said Nicole was at work. That was the last time he talked to her. So I headed over to the titan building, and Serena and Daniel did too.
Abe: And you were with Daniel in Chicago?
Serena: Well, no. We bumped into each other. I was looking for Eric too.
Abe: Go on.
Brady: We got to the titan building, and the place was deserted. All the lights in the front entrance had been knocked out. [Sighs] And then when we got inside, we heard the rumbling of the furnace.
Abe: On a hot day in June.
Brady: Exactly. The place was like an oven. We finally found Eric and Nicole. They were in a crawl space behind a utility room, and the furnace fed directly into that crawl space. I mean, there was furniture piled up. Somebody had blockaded the whole thing. Someone wanted them dead.
Abe: And you believe that was Xander cook?
Brady: Yeah, I do. So does Daniel.
Serena: Have--have you found Xander yet?
John: We're looking for him.
Abe: Oh, excuse me. Hey, frank. Anything new on Xander cook's whereabouts? Okay, well, look, in case you haven't heard this yet, his real name is Alexandros Kiriakis. So you'd better check out Victor's place. Yeah, thank you. Cook might still be in nearby, somewhere in the vicinity. They, uh--they're gonna check out his hotel and the Kiriakis mansion. But still no sign of him yet.
Kayla: You and Nicole were in the same situation for the same amount of time. You are starting to recover, so she should too.
Eric: But the heat, it got to her first. Kayla, please, I need to know if she's doing any better.
Kayla: No, I promised Roman that I would not leave your side.
Eric: I'll use the call button if I need anything.
Kayla: All right. I'll be back with an update.
Eric: Thank you. [Sighs]
Chad: I apologize for insinuating that you were--
Zoe: You didn't insinuate anything. You said it flat out, that I was trying to get you into bed, because it'd be good for my career.
Chad: And that was wrong of me.
Zoe: Well, the only thing you got wrong was my motivation.
Chad: I'm not looking for anything long-term.
Zoe: [Snorts] And you think I am? You're not wrong about me being all about my career. But when I came here tonight, my career was the farthest thing from my mind. And it still is.
Ben: Do you know how much I love you, Abigail?
Abigail: I love you, too.
Ben: I am never going to let you forget how much.
Abe: Don't touch anything.
Brady: My prints are all over the place anyway.
John: Have the techs completed a sweep of the area?
Cop: Yeah, we're just finishing up.
Abe: I want any security and surveillance tapes and the sign-in records.
Cop: There's no record of anyone coming or going for the last 18 hours.
Cop: The security guard said he had to go home early. He got sick after he ate his lunch.
John: I don't think that's a coincidence.
Brady: I don't, either. What about cameras in the hallway outside Nicole's office, and the ones in the tunnel, that crawl space, this room?
Cop: All disabled. Whoever did this, they knew what they were doing.
Eric: I don't want you around.
Serena: I had to make sure you were all right.
Eric: Yeah, well, they say I'm going to make it.
Serena: Thank god.
Eric: How does it feel... to know your boy Xander did this to Nicole and me? You know she might die? Did you know that?
Serena: I told her to stay away from him.
Eric: You didn't tell her why, did you?
Serena: I said he was dangerous.
Eric: Yeah? Did you mention he was a killer?
Serena: I did-- look, Eric, I know that I deserve every horrible thing you're thinking about me. But I am so grateful and relieved that you're alive. Is there a possibility that you'd let me stay around long enough to... try and make you understand?
Eric: Yeah, go for it, Serena. Try and make me understand.
Nicole: In case you're interested, I am not having any fun.
Daniel: Well, you could try to lose gracefully.
Nicole: I haven't lost yet, you ball hog.
Daniel: Ball hog. Ball hog?
Nicole: Yeah, you play the game, you get the name.
Daniel: Wow, okay. In that case, I'm gonna take my ball and go home.
Nicole: Give me that damn ball!
Daniel: No, I'm not-- oh, my god! What do you--no!
Nicole: Oh, yeah! Who's winning now, huh?
Eric: What are you, a howler monkey? Get off me!
Nicole: No, give me the ball!
Daniel: No, you're not having the ball. It's not gonna happen--oh!
Daniel: Seriously, you let go of a hot tip?
Nicole: It wasn't worth it. It wasn't a project I was interested in. The only thing I care about is being right here, with you.
Daniel: I am having a hard time trusting you. It--it's just--it's huge.
Nicole: And tomorrow you will understand. But until then... trust in this.
Eric: You were about to have your shot at happiness with Daniel, and I'm sorry about-- and now... oh, god.
Nicole: I just hope Daniel knows how much I love him.
Daniel: Hey. Hey, hey! You're all right. Honey, you're safe, okay? I'm here, I'm right here. Is there any way you can open your eyes? [Groaning] I am so sorry I doubted you. You are the strongest, bravest-- I love you, so much. Honey...
Daniel: Yeah. Yes. Hey.
Serena: Eric, I know that everything I'm saying sounds hollow and lame to you, but it is all true. I came to Salem for the wrong reasons. But over time I realized that that was the best decision that I'd ever made... because of you. I did warn Nicole about Xander. I wanted to tell you the truth so many times, but-- but I couldn't. I couldn't because-- because I was a coward. Afraid of how much you'd hate me. And when I decided I didn't care about myself anymore, I still couldn't tell you, because I was terrified of Xander and what might happen to you, because he knew how much I loved you. You see, it didn't-- maybe it didn't start off as love... but it ended up being the truest and deepest love that I have ever felt in my life. And I--I'm so sorry that I hurt you.
Kayla: Oh, I'm sorry. Um, I have good news. Nicole has regained consciousness. She's gonna be all right.
Eric: [Sighs] Thank god.
Kayla: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt.
Serena: That's okay, believe me.
Eric: Can you just tell me when I can see Nicole?
Kayla: Um, in a bit. I'll check back on you later, okay?
Eric: I'm fine. I'm fine, really.
Serena: I'm so happy for you. And for Nicole. I'm really-- I'm really grateful and relieved.
Nicole: I was dreaming about you.
Nicole: Is it still a dream?
Daniel: No. Mm-mm, I'm here, you're here. You're gonna be all right.
Nicole: Daniel, I was so scared. I never thought I'd see you again.
Daniel: Well, you're gonna see me again. And again, and again, and again and again and again. I promise you. I promise you.
Nicole: Am I gonna be okay?
Daniel: You are. You made it, baby. You're gonna be just fine. I love you, so much.
Nicole: I love you, Daniel. It's always been you.
Zoe: Do you have a confidence problem or something?
Chad: Why do you say that?
Zoe: Thinking the only reason I want to be with you is because of what you can do for me? I mean, have you looked in the mirror lately?
Chad: I've had a brother and a sister die within the last year. Mirror-gazing has not been at the top of my list.
Zoe: Hmm. When was the last time that you had any fun?
Chad: When I had dinner with you.
Zoe: That's a good answer.
Zoe: And you know what? While we're putting all our cards out on the table, let me tell you something. It does not bother me one bit that you are still hung up on Abigail Deveraux.
Abigail: [Sighs] That was unbelievable.
Ben, something wrong?
Ben: No, no. Everything's fine. Want a bottle of water or something?
Abigail: No, I'm good.
Ben: Okay. I'll be right back.
Ben: She's mine again. She's mine.
Chad: Now what would give you the idea that I am hung up on Abigail Deveraux?
Zoe: The way you looked at her when I came over here for dinner. Then there was the way you acted after she left. The way you talked about her and the look you got on your face just now when I mentioned her name.
Chad: You may be a good journalist, you may claim to have good instincts about people, but when it comes to figuring me out I assure you you do not have a clue.
Good morning. Last night it was-- it was everything. It was probably the most incredible night of my life. And no one can ever take that away.
Ben: I just made a decision.
Ben: You want to pay half the rent? That's fine with me.
Abigail: Thank you, Ben.
Ben: I am never going to give you a reason to regret being with me. I swear I'm gonna make you happy.
Serena: Eric... you're so quiet. What I said, make any difference at all?
Eric: I don't care what happens to you. I don't care if you go to prison. I don't care if I ever lay eyes on you again. You disgust me and I want you gone! I want you gone, Serena.
Serena: Excuse me.
Cop: Serena mason?
Cop: You're wanted for further questioning.
Abe: [Sighs] You know Forensics has gone over Nicole's office, the tunnels, that crawl space, this room. The only prints they lifted were from Eric and Nicole. I-- I just can't believe it.
John: Whoever did this was a real pro, Abe.
Brady: There's a freaking television station headquarters in this building. You're telling me nobody saw anything?
Abe: When the lights in the front went off, the building was evacuated. I've got uniforms canvassing the area. Hopefully some bystander saw something.
Brady: I wouldn't count on that. But Daniel might be able to tell you something.
John: I think if we want to find out what happened tonight, our best bet gonna ride on Eric and Nicole.
Abe: Any word on their condition?
John: Yeah, I talked to Kayla, looks like they're gonna make it.
Brady: [Sighs] Thank god.
John: So, who knows? Maybe they'll just be able to tell us why someone would do this to 'em.
Nicole: [Sighs] I can't stay awake.
Daniel: Don't worry about it. Just rest. We need to get you another saline bag. I'll be back. I will be back.
Nicole: You better be.
