Brady: Police are on their way.
Theresa: Oh, thank God.
Xander: That bitch is lying. It was all her idea, she made the first move, she was all over me.
Theresa: That is not true.
Brady: Xander, shut-up. You may have gotten away with what you did to Eric and Nicole, but I swear to God, this time you are going to jail, where you belonged all along.
Nicole: You did remember to get the check certified, right? I mean, not that I don't trust you or anything, but...
Serena: It's certified.
Nicole: It must hurt, handing over a quarter of a million dollars. Especially after all the illegal and immoral things you've done.
Eric: All right, Nicole.
Nicole: No, but still, it beats serving seven to ten years in jail where you belong. But if you are free, I'm glad I could help make you free and broke. Flat broke, not two teeny tiny dimes to rub together at all.
Eric: Nicole, stop it. That's enough.
Chad: So, you're gonna be a wife and a mother. Hope you're happy.
Ben: Rough day?
Chad: Ben, I didn't know you cared.
Ben: I don't.
Chad: I guess you could say it's been a rough day. How about you? You're celebrating getting everything you wanted?
Chad: Lucky man. Lucky things didn't turn out just a little bit differently.
Ben: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Abigail: All right, so this afternoon, I was summoned to the DiMera mansion. It was Chad who called me, but Stefano was there. And he looked so angry, it was scary. And Chad... he told me about this inheritance I'm supposed to be getting. I didn't know anything about it at all, but Stefano did. And that is why Stefano wanted me and Chad to get back together. So that he could get his hands on it.
Will: So that's why Chad's been going after you again.
Abigail: I don't know. I guess, maybe at first. But will, I mean, he just--he told me everything, right there in front of Stefano. He defied his own father right in front of me to protect me.
Will: Wow. To say the least, that is dangerous. Even if he's your father, you do not defy Stefano without consequences.
Abigail: I know that. I know, and Chad knows that. And that is what made it so brave, so selfless. What?
Will: Abigail, I think it's time that you be honest with yourself. You're in love with Chad.
Hope: Hey, what's going on?
Rafe: Well, just wanted to let you know I came down here so... well, I just turned in my paperwork so that I could get reinstated on the force.
Hope: Really? Nice.
Rafe: Yeah. Okay, well, wish me luck.
Hope: Yep, good luck.
Rafe: All righty.
Hope: One more thing.
Hope: Yes! [Laughs]
Rafe: Awe, you.
Aiden: Look, I'm going to get your money real soon. I know I'm late. You never let me forget, but I'm gonna get it all to you, okay? I'll tell you how I know. Because I'm about to come into a big bundle very soon, so relax.
Hope: This is the best news I have heard in a very, very, very long time. This deserves a happy dance. Whoo!
Rafe: Okay, it's a little over the top right now.
Hope: Yeah, well, try and stop me, okay? And nobody, and I mean nobody, makes coffee like you do.
Rafe: Well, it's nice to know that you missed me. Well, my coffee anyway.
Hope: I'll take a cappuccino.
Rafe: It's not a done deal yet.
Hope: It will be. You're a good cop. We can't afford not to have you back on the force.
Rafe: I thought we agreed we were gonna stop fishing around on Clyde Weston? What is this? Huh?
Hope: Well, I have.
Rafe: Oh, you have?
Hope: I'm done.
Hope: This if for the shredder. There's nothing in this file that is going to help me. Listen, Aiden admitted that. He checked in to Clyde and there's nothing there. So I'm just gonna have to accept that I'm not gonna find anything.
Rafe: And that makes you crazy, doesn't it?
Hope: And you didn't let me finish. I'm not gonna find anything. Not now.
Aiden: You get a pass for now, Weston. But only for now. [Sighs]
Ben: I asked you what the hell you meant by that?
Brady: Bennie, man. It's an unwritten law that a man drinking alone in the middle of the afternoon must get, you know, philosophical. Think about life. How things can be going great and then just one little twist of fate can change everything.
Ben: That's real deep.
Chad: But true. Make sure you don't take things between you and Abigail for granted.
Ben: I don't need any advice from you. Especially not about Abigail.
Chad: You think you know her so well, don't you?
Ben: Are you saying I don't.
Clyde: Hey, sorry I'm late, son. Let's grab a table, huh? Hey, I told you to steer clear of him. Your DiMeras can get downright nasty when they've been bested.
Nicole: Have you forgotten that you and I almost died because of her and that pig Xander. Have you forgotten what they did to get this money?
Nicole: No? Well, if the cops can't make them pay, well.
Eric: Course she was wrong. She shouldn't have done things that she did, but don't lump her in with Xander. All you're trying to do is ruin her life.
Nicole: Really? Well I think she deserves the rack.
Eric: You know, I thought you really changed, but here you stand still just vindictive and money hungry.
Nicole: Go ahead. Think the worst of me, like you always do. I will take beauty into my own hands...where it belongs.
Serena: Thank you for sticking up for me. You didn't have to do that.
Eric: Like I said, I've forgiven you. And I don't think Nicole should be talking to you like that, but this whole civil suit has brought back a lot of...
Serena: The lies.
Eric: Yeah. Which is why I don't think we can have any kind of relationship nor friendship.
Serena: I see.
Eric: Serena, I think that it's best if we just go our separate ways.
Serena: Okay. I get it. I finally get it.
Xander: You can't seriously think I'm stupid enough to attack her right in the middle of Victor's living room.
Brady: Why don't you shut-up before I finish the job that I started on your face.
Xander: Try it.
Theresa: Don't you touch him, Xander.
Victor: What the hell's going on here? And what the hell in my house?
Theresa: He was attacking me.
Brady: And I saw the whole thing, so you are not protecting him this time.
Victor: Well, Theresa, this must have been a terrible ordeal for a fragile flower like you. Why don't you take her outside and get some fresh air.
Brady: Not a chance. I'm not leaving this scum out of my sight.
Victor: I'll take care of Alexandros. He and I are going to have a little chat.
Hope: There you are.
Aiden: Where else would I be?
Hope: You look awful.
Aiden: Oh. [Chuckles] Ah, and you look beautiful as always.
Hope: Ah, if I could get my hands on the guy who did this to you, you know what he'd look like, right?
Aiden: Okay, I know you're looking out for me, but I just want to forget about last night and move on.
Hope: Well, it looks like you're moving on in more ways than one, Mr. Jennings, hmm?
Aiden: That's right. That's right, thanks to the shredder, my connection to Clyde Weston is truly, completely over. Of course, let's me concentrate on more important matters. Hmm?
Ben: It's weird, you know? Just now, Chad got me going. I started to lose it and then he just backed down. He's never done that before.
Clyde: What, are you feeling sorry for him?
Ben: I don't feel sorry for him. I hate his guts. It's just that he's--
Clyde: It's just nothing. You won, he lost. Stay the hell away from him.
Serena: Sure could use a drink.
Abigail: Damn it, will. I am not in love with Chad, okay? It's over. It's over, I just-- I just--
Will: Just what?
Hope: I don't know. I don't know how to explain to you what was going on with him and his father, but it was just-- I mean, the way that Stefano looked at him. It was like you could feel the anger. And maybe even hate.
Will: Well, it's because he wanted your inheritance. What was it? The crown jewels of England? Wrong island, but it was land, though, in Ireland.
Will: Well thank God that Chad took the high road. Now I don't mean to scare you. But if you had married Chad and you had gotten that land, just think about what Stefano might have done to speed things along.
Abigail: God, yeah, you're right. I didn't even think of that. So, this thing with Chad, I mean, it's not just that Stefano won't get the land, you know, it's... he defied his father to protect me.
Will: It doesn't matter if you're his son. You do not defy Stefano DiMera.
Abigail: It's-- it's just beginning to sink in how much he really loves me. Americans.
Theresa: I know. I know I look horrible.
Brady: Do you think you need to see a doctor?
Theresa: No, no, I want him-- I want the cops to see what he did to me.
Brady: Theresa, if you're hurt, I can have a doctor come here and look at you.
Theresa: Brady, no, it's okay. It's okay, I think I'll be fine, I was just really scared and you were wonderful.
Brady: I'm sorry for what happened to you.
Theresa: I don't know, Brady. Maybe, maybe I brought this on myself.
Brady: Ther--no. None of that was your fault. [Sighs]
Theresa: I just thank God you came home when you did. I mean, but can't think he would have... [Cries]
Brady: Um... it's okay, it's okay. It's over, it's okay. [Breathes heavily]
Chad: Damn it, I know you're not taken in by her, right? She's a lying, scheming slut! I was hoping that motherhood would improve her character.
Chad: So you're going to help me? You'll tell the cops that she was lying?
Victor: Well, now it seems to me I just heard the pot calling the kettle black. I think, Alexandros, you've lied once or twice yourself. An attempted murder. And tried to profit at the misery of others and most egregious of all, you tried to play me. Oh, and your gardening skills suck, too. So I can't think of a single reason why I should try and help you.
Xander: I'm family.
Daniel: There you are. [Giggles]
Daniel: Well, hello. [Giggles] Good morning. All right, I wanna here about this big news.
Daniel: Oh, hold on a second. [Sighs] It's Chloe, let me check if it's about parker. Oh, my gosh. [Chuckles] Look at that.
Nicole: Aw. That's too cute.
Nicole: What's he holding?
Daniel: It's an animal of some sort. He made it for you at summer camp.
Nicole: Mm. He might give Rodin a run for his money.
Nicole: Oh, don't tell him you showed me that. He'll want to surprise me.
Daniel: Look at you. You just know him so well.
Daniel: You are going to be truly be, a most unwicked stepmother, I'm seeing a role model.
Nicole: Okay, wow--
Daniel: A sexy role model.
Nicole: Let's not go overboard, okay? And I know Chloe had real doubts about me being a good step mommy.
Daniel: Hey, she's past that. She sees what I see. How much you've changed. Tell me. What is it, what's the big news?
Hope: This isn't very discrete, Mr. Jennings.
Hope: The secretary could walk in any second.
Aiden: Oh, gave her the day off.
Hope: Oh, really?
Hope: Kind of arrogant of you, isn't it? To think that I couldn't stay away.
Aiden: Ah, just being optimistic, that's all.
Hope: Oh, yeah, mm-hmm.
Rafe: Aiden, your secretary-- yeah, okay, you're busy.
Hope: Hey, Rafe.
Serena: Hello? Is there anybody who can pour some scotch into a glass? Most bars can manage that.
Chad: I'll get it for you. Scotch, neat?
Serena: Uh, you know this is not a salad bar. You're not supposed so serve it to yourself.
Chad: Lucky for you, you're sitting next to one of the owners. The single malt?
Nicole: Oh, yes, sorry. That's beyond my discretionary spending limit right now.
Chad: But it's on the house. Let me know if it's too peaty.
Serena: I'm not usually too picky with free drinks. Who can I thank for this?
Serena: Serena. I'm in debt to you.
Ben: Well, as you can see, he's all broken up about losing Abigail.
Clyde: Making moves with another woman means absolutely nothing. Take my advice. Tie the know with Abigail ASAP.
Abigail: You know, he tried to cover it up, but being a DiMera means a lot to Chad. And he basically gave all that up for me.
Will: You're right. Standing up to Stefano like that was awesome. But you cannot let that affect how you feel about Ben.
Abigail: Wait, what? That's a change, I-- you were just telling me how you thought I was so torn between Ben and Chad, and I thought-- I got the impression you were on Chad's side.
Will: I'm on your side. Yes, Chad is my friend, and I know all about the history that the two of you share, but I've gotten to know Ben. And I can see that you can count on him. [Sighs]
Abigail: Yeah. You don't think that I could have counted on Chad, do you?
Will: Chad is, to say the least, complicated. There's a lot of drama. A lot of baggage. And the father from hell. No, you've got to put Chad completely behind you.
Nicole: Okay, maybe my news isn't that great.
Daniel: Nah, you sounded pretty excited on your message.
Nicole: Well you know me. Come on, I get carried away.
Daniel: All right, hold on.
Daniel: Yeah, oh it's the hospital, I'm sorry. Dr. Jonas. I will be right there. Yeah. I'm, uh, really sorry.
Nicole: It's okay. You're a doctor. People need you. Well it's just a quick consult. So why don't we meet later and you can tell me all about this big, big news you have.
Daniel: Okay? [Giggles] All right, walking away. [Giggles] [Sighs]
Xander: We're the same blood. We are family.
Victor: We are not family. You are the cast-off son of my worthless brother. You take and you take and all you manage to do is disgrace all of us. You were supposed to learn to follow orders. Obviously, you learned nothing. You're worthless, like your father.
Xander: You are one smug son of a bitch.
Victor: I am a son of a bitch, and you crossed me. And don't even think about my helping you with with the settlement. Old Nicole strolled into court and took you to the cleaners. Good for her! And good luck to you coming up with the money. You're on your own.
Rafe: I've always been known for my great timing.
Aiden: Oh, come on in, Rafe, it's--
Rafe: I'm sorry. I thought you were going to be buried under a pile of paperwork. And you, I didn't even know you were gonna be here.
Aiden: Oh, you were at the station?
Rafe: Yeah, yeah, I was turning in my paperwork to get reinstated.
Aiden: That's great news. Good luck with that. I always wish I got you a better deal. If you're here about your sister, this, here you go. I got her a date for the hearing.
Rafe: How things looking for her?
Aiden: You know what? She's an exemplary inmate, you know, and I put together a brief on her history with Nick Fallon and how controlling he was and everything, so I--
Rafe: We probably don't need to get into that right now.
Aiden: I'm sorry, baby.
Hope: No, it's fine.
Rafe: I'm sorry.
Hope: No, really, it's okay. I love Nick, but-- my whole family knows there were extenuating circumstances. And we also know that Arianna needs her mother.
Rafe: Thank you.
Hope: You're welcome. She's in good hands. If anyone can pull it off, it's Aiden.
Hope: He's the best.
Abigail: You're right. Yeah, I know, you're right about everything. [Exhales] So, first thing on my to-do list is to stop even thinking about Chad.
Abigail: Yeah, I mean I, I-- I'm having a baby and Ben and this baby, that's the most important thing in my life right now.
Will: Absolutely. [Inhales]
Abigail: Have you heard from Sonny yet?
Will: Not since he left for Paris.
Abigail: How long is he going to be gone. I don't know. The cover story is that he's doing some job for Victor, but we both know that he's mainly found a way to spend some time away from me.
Abigail: No. Time to think. Will, he's gonna go and clear his head and then he'll be back.
Will: I wish I could be as sure as you are. [Giggles] If I hadn't have lied. If I hadn't have waged this guerilla warfare on Paul.
Abigail: Will. Look at me. I mean, I have screwed up so many times and so badly. Look at me, I mean, I have Ben and, I mean, I have a baby.
Will: Trust Ben. Across the board. I didn't trust Sonny and now I might lose everything.
Serena: DiMera, huh? That's a pretty powerful name in Salem.
Chad: It is, but I might not be a DiMera much longer. Sort of got disowned today.
Chad: I'm not. It's my life, not his.
Serena: Yeah. Yeah, my mother and I, we got a great relationship.
Serena: We're on different continents, we don't even talk to each other.
Chad: Parents. Who needs 'em?
Serena: Not me.
Chad: Not me. Not us.
Ben: You gotta say this about the little guy. He's a smooth operator.
Clyde: Ben, I thought I told you not to pay any attention to him. Abigail's made her choice. You got nothing to worry about.
Ben: Yeah? Well then how about you explain this to me. Why'd she go running to see him today at his freaking mansion?
Clyde: What? Why that little... I've been the same shade of red for many years.
Nicole: So I'm mad, Eric says. I haven't changed. Yet I'm about to do the same thing I always do. [Sighs] [Sighs] You are about as subtle as I am.
Chad: Before I forget.
Clyde: She went to see him, huh? Why the hell would she do that?
Ben: You think I know? I gave her a chance to tell me about it, but guess what? She didn't share.
Clyde: Well let's see now. He was in a foul mood when he got here. He's drinking alone. Chances are it wasn't a friendly visit. Hey, what the hell are you doing her hanging out with me anyway? You should be home making nice to Abigail.
Ben: Making nice?
Ben: How about why the hell did she go and talk to him, dad? And why does she feel the need to keep it a secret?
Clyde: Well I don't know. Think it has anything to do with you flying off the handle every time his name is mentioned? Come on, get over it. You won, enjoy it.
Ben: Right. But it sure as hell doesn't feel like I won.
Serena: You don't like that guy, do you?
Chad: No more than he likes me. Let's talk about you. What sent you in to the bar obviously needing a drink?
Serena: Mm. You know, same old boring story. Just the guy. Wasn't until I royally screwed everything up that I realized he was "the guy."
Chad: Mm. I hate it when that happens.
Serena: You sound like you know what I'm talking about.
Chad: You could say that. What would you say about another drink?
Serena: Hell yeah.
Abigail: Yeah, just to check if he's all right.
Theresa: And then, thank God Brady came in when he did because that pig, he was so strong, I couldn't get him off of me.
Xander: She's lying she came on to me.
Brady: Sit down, sit down. Shut-up. I swear it's not how it happened.
Officer: Mr. Black?
Brady: I came in the room. He was on top of her and she was trying to push him off.
Officer: Stand up, put your hands behind your back. Come on.
Xander: Uncle Victor.
Officer: Xander cook. You're under arrest for assault and attempted rape. You have right to remain silent. You have the right to an attorney. If you can't afford one, one will be provided for you.
Victor: Believe me. He can't afford one. Time to call legal aid.
Officer: Come on.
Daniel: So, what are we celebrating?
Nicole: Well, it's going to be in the paper tomorrow, but... I won my civil suit against Xander and Serena.
Daniel: Well that's fast.
Nicole: And sweet. And in legal terminology, I cleaned up. They both owe me a quarter of a million dollars.
Daniel: That's a sizable chunk of change.
Nicole: I wiped 'em both out. I already collected from Serena.
Nicole: Yeah. Oh, and Eric was there, mm-hmm, and he thought I was enjoying it too much. That I hadn't changed. That I was vindictive and money hungry.
Daniel: Look he is a very good, very smart man, but this time, he happens to be full of it.
Nicole: You really think so?
Daniel: I love the guy, but that was smug and condescending.
Nicole: I love you. But he did do something good and I started thinking and I gave all of Serena's money to a charity for the homeless.
Daniel: Babe, that is amazing.
Nicole: Yeah, well, he made a good point. Serena isn't the one who tried to kill me, but Xander, I'm keeping his money, and when I do get my hands on it, I'm doing something special for myself.
Daniel: Yeah? What are you gonna do?
Nicole: Something really, really exciting.
Serena: You know, I don't know about you, but, um, I can't stand broads who cry in their beer.
Chad: I'm sorry. That's a 18-year-old single malt and you don't have to go.
Serena: Yeah, I'm just-- I wanna go to the ladies room and get myself together. I'll be back.
Chad: Miss you already.
Serena: Did I tell you that you have good taste in scotch.
Clyde: And women.
Chad: Go away.
Clyde: How nice. Looks like you got a new little friend.
Ben: There you are.
Abigail: Oh, hi! I was just gonna call you.
Abigail: And now I don't have to. [Chuckles]
Ben: You know, when you left the apartment, you seemed a little upset.
Abigail: I did?
Ben: Yeah. It's something about the way you were acting. I know you pretty well by now.
Abigail: Yes you do.
Abigail: But I'm okay.
Ben: No, I don't think so. Abigail, tell me the truth. What's going on with you?
Hope: I need to get back to work.
Aiden: Okay then.
Hope: I'll talk to you later. Give my best to Gabi.
Rafe: Will do.
Aiden: All right. So that's good news about you. Reapplying to the force.
Rafe: It's not a done deal.
Aiden: I know how much you love being a cop. I know how much hope misses you as a partner. Just hope you can keep your feelings about her under control. Grandma, this is the kids' table.
Theresa: I hope that's the last time I ever have to see that jerk. [Sighs]
Brady: You're probably going to have to testify at his trial.
Theresa: Yeah. Well I can do that if you're there.
Brady: I'll be there. Thank you. Well, I'm gonna have to testify too.
Theresa: Listen, Brady. Thank you again. Listen, you were so wonderful to me today and I was kind of hoping that I could take you to dinner. Just as a, you know, as a form of gratitude. [Sighs]
Brady: You know, I was waiting for this.
Theresa: You were?
Brady: I was wondering how long it was gonna take before you were going to cash in on what just happened.
Theresa: Brady, that's not--
Brady: Can it! Nothing's changed. Keep your distance.
Nicole: I was thinking a lot.
Nicole: About what you said about parker looking up to me as a role model. [Giggles] And being a trashy, tabloid journalist just doesn't quite fit the bill, now does it?
Daniel: Okay, hey, hey, don't knock what my fiancÚ does for a living.
Nicole: You're so sweet about what I do, but Daniel. I want a job that I love. I want a real challenge. So I'm taking Xander's money and I'm gonna open my own business.
Daniel: Yeah, doing what?
Nicole: I don't know. I mean, you can laugh, 'cause I can hear that sounds naive and airheaded, but--
Daniel: Hey, hey, I warned you about dissing my fiancÚ, right?
Nicole: Kay, maybe I really do know. But it's just an idea. So I don't think I'm really ready to talk about it.
Daniel: All right, then don't. Just let it-- just let it percolate. Hey, to dreaming big.
Nicole: To dreaming big.
Rafe: Listen, man, you need to take it easy, okay? I care about hope a lot, but that's as far as it goes.
Aiden: Rafe. Look, I get it, don't worry about it... hope is an amazing woman, okay, in fact, I don't get why every man on earth isn't in love with her. I just need to know it isn't gonna be a problem.
Rafe: It's not gonna be a problem.
Aiden: Good. Between you and me. I'm planning on asking her to marry me.
Officer: Just heard Hernandez is trying to get back on the force?
Hope: Yeah, I know. Amazing right? I hope it happens. I think it will. I really miss working with him.
Officer: Yeah? You guys were a heck of a pair, almost as good as you and Bo.
Hope: Yeah. Yeah? Yeah.
Hope: Yeah. I think so too.
Abigail: I wasn't upset. I mean, if I seemed emotional that's just something you're gonna have to get used to. Because there's a lot going on, you know. With work and the wedding and the baby.
Ben: You sure that's it?
Abigail: Isn't that enough?
Ben: I mean, I know it's a lot to handle, but you don't have to do it alone.
Abigail: I know.
Ben: I just hope you know you can count on me.
Abigail: I do. I know that.
Ben: Kay, good. So you ready to go home?
Abigail: Actually, you know, I have some shopping that I still have to get done so, uh, you go ahead and I will meet you there, okay? I won't be long.
Chad: I thought I told you to go away.
Serena: What's going on?
Clyde: Nothing. I just came by to say hi to an old friend, but I'll let you two get back to whatever it is you were doing.
Serena: He doesn't seem like he's an old friend.
Serena: Fists are clenched like you wanna slug him.
Chad: The more you get to know me, you'll find out I'm not a very violent man.
Serena: And am I gonna get to know more of you?
Chad: We should talk about that.
Chad: Yeah. Over another drink?
Serena: I like the way you think.
