Marlena: [Groaning] I had the loveliest dream.
John: I think we're living it.
Marlena: What time is it? Oh, my god. Why did I sleep so late?
John: Because I pulled the curtains so you could get some sleep.
Marlena: I've missed my first patient.
John: No, you haven't. I made a few phone calls and cleared your day.
Marlena: You did what?
John: I just told them you weren't feeling well and you needed to take today off. Uh-oh, not charming?
Marlena: No, no, no. That was presumptuous.
Nicole: Brady! Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Brady: Oh, hi.
Nicole: I've been looking everywhere for you.
Brady: Did you hear about Serena?
Nicole: Yes, I did. It's terrible. I wouldn't wish death on her-- on anyone.
Brady: Makes you kind of think.
Nicole: What you're doing with your life? Yes, definitely.
Brady: You too, huh?
Nicole: It's a wake-up call, which is why I was looking for you. I heard john put basic black on the market.
Brady: You heard correctly. He wants to sell it, but he has to find the right buyer.
Nicole: You're looking at her.
Brady: [Laughs] Theresa: Okay, so I did some research, and I found the current evaluation on basic black.
Maggie: Theresa, are you still holding on to the fantasy that you can run basic black?
Theresa: Well, not by myself. I mean, there are people that do that, but I want to buy it.
Maggie: At this price?
Theresa: If that's what it takes.
Maggie: How do you propose to get the money?
Theresa: Investors? I need a white knight.
Maggie: With a miracle in his pocket.
Theresa: Sounds like your specialty. I was thinking you could be my prime investor.
Kayla: Scooch. Soochie scooch.
Joey: I'm not hungry.
Kayla: Well, we don't need to eat anything. We just have to make a good impression on Mr. Marks.
Kayla: Mr. Marks, the headmaster for Salem prep. You know, I had to call in a big favor to get this meeting. I mean, it wasn't easy, considering the semester has already started, and then I had to tell him about you being expelled from your last school, and well, you know, that didn't make a very good impression. Oh, here he comes. Okay, so I'll start the talking, and then you come in after me. Hi, Mr. Marks. Hi, thank you so much for meeting us. Please, sit down. This is my son, Joey. Joey Johnson.
Marks: Pleasure to meet you. And you dr. Brady. Let's see what we can do here. Now, these transcripts.
Kayla: Yeah, I'm sure you want some explanations for what's in there.
Joey: I'm not big on rules.
Joey: Or studying or going to class.
Kayla: He's joking. He's joking. He realizes that he didn't get off to a very good start at his last school, and-- but you know, now that he's home, he--
Joey: It'll be more of the same.
Victor: Bo is off on a mission for the ISA.
Steve: Come on, victor. That can't be all you know about it.
Victor: He left. Later, hope got a letter saying he was going deep undercover.
Victor: And that's it. Ask anybody in town.
Steve: I'm not asking what anyone else knows. What do you know? Where's Bo? [Coughing]
Victor: You think if I knew where Bo was, I wouldn't tell hope?
Steve: Well, not if Bo swore you to secrecy, or if you found out through extralegal means.
Victor: I'm going to be very patient with you, because I know you care about Bo. Now, this is my patient face. Look at it carefully. I don't know where he is.
Steve: Okay. I'll tell you what. I'm not leaving until you give me a real answer.
Victor: Now, this is my patient face fading away. I don't know where he is.
Steve: Okay, okay. How about this? How about we try to figure it out together? Don't you think it's important to find out where your son really is?
Victor: Sure, why not? Since I don't care about my son, my own flesh and blood, what the hell? Let's spend some time here. Oh, I've got an idea. Why don't you talk to your employers, since they're the ones that shipped him off?
Steve: Are you sure it was an ISA operation?
Victor: I'm not sure of anything.
Steve: Did you ask at the company?
Victor: Of course, I did. Got nowhere.
Steve: I didn't think anyone told you no.
Victor: People don't. Secretive government agencies, though? Not very reasonable.
Steve: Did anyone there even talk to you?
Victor: They took my call. Told me it was a very large, complex, highly classified operation.
Steve: And long. Way too long, even for deep cover.
Victor: Wouldn't know about that.
Steve: But you do know that Bo would not go away for that long and leave hope hanging, no matter what.
Victor: How long has it been since you've seen your wife and family? [Sighs]
Steve: Man, I'm not Bo, and this is not about me.
Victor: You're back here for the first time in years, and your first priority is to Bo. I'm onto you. [Scoffs]
Marks: I appreciate a good joke, but I haven't much time.
Kayla: No, and we don't want to waste your time. You know, Joey was going through some family issues at his last school, but I think that we'll be able to handle those better now that he's home. You know, he was always an excellent student. I mean, if you look here in his middle school records, he--he's excellent in class, and he had extracurricular activities. He played tennis, he was on the swim team.
Joey: I don't want to do any of that.
Kayla: And I'm sure once he finds his place, he will find a way to contribute--
Joey: And by the way, last year I sold the answers to the trig final to half the class, and those other as and Bs from last year? Hacked into the school's computer and changed the real grades.
Marks: Okay, I've had enough. This interview is over.
Kayla: Mr. Marks, I'm so sorry. What is going on with you?
John: Just hold on and hear me out. I didn't mean to presume. I just thought this was kind of a gift to you from me. Last night was a big step for us.
Marlena: It was.
Just I just kind of felt that we should savor it.
Marlena: Hmm. Gosh, I'd invite you back to bed, but oh, lookee. You're all dressed.
John: Yeah, I've been up for a while.
Marlena: Oh. Are we taking a trip?
John: The agency called at 6:00 A.M. Today. Emergency briefing in D.C.
Marlena: So all this romancing was just so you could leave me and go off and save the world... again.
Nicole: Ha ha?
Brady: Ha ha. Come on, you can't possibly afford it.
Nicole: No, no, no, no, no. I have the money from the lawsuit, and I have a little left from my last divorce. Daniel wants to invest. We're looking for more backers. We'll have the money to make a bid. We have to. I mean, it's too good of an opportunity.
Brady: You're serious?
Nicole: Why are you so surprised?
Brady: I'm sorry. It's just, the last couple years, you've been...
Nicole: Yeah, causing trouble, wasting time. I know. But... I want a real challenge now. Something that uses all of me, something that I can be proud of.
Brady: That's good. That's--that's-- those are great goals.
Nicole: So I was looking for you--you know, not to hit you up, even though you are my favorite millionaire in town, and I would love to have you on board. But that's not what I was going to ask you.
Brady: Okay, hit me.
Nicole: Well, you know, we might not have the full asking price up front, so if I thought if john would just work with us, we would make it worthwhile eventually. So would you talk to your dad for me?
Brady: I'm sorry. Nicole, I can't do it.
Theresa: Wait, listen. It's called an equity group, and I read that if you get one smart, savvy businessperson who everyone respects to go in first, then it attracts others.
Maggie: And why do you think I would do it? You have a very short memory.
Theresa: So you're what? Holding a grudge?
Maggie: No, but it's fair to say that you have been less than dependable in my experience.
Theresa: Oh, Maggie, come on. Listen, you live with me. You know I hardly even drink anymore, and that's since way before Tate came home. Listen, I am dependable.
Maggie: You don't know the first thing about running a business.
Theresa: I know you need a product to sell. And listen, there are people at basic black who know how to balance the books and do a business plan or whatever, but what they need is a vision. They need a brand, an image, and that's me.
Maggie: So you're the image of basic black? They don't need a figurehead.
Theresa: I don't mean me, like, "oh, here I am standing at my desk. My power suit matches the curtains." I mean, like, look, these.
Maggie: Did you just throw these together last night?
Theresa: Just take a look. This is me. This is what basic black needs.
Theresa: And okay, so not these. Not this pile.
Maggie: They're lovely. How long have you been drawing?
Theresa: Since I was a kid. I mean, I didn't bring all of that stuff obviously, but yeah, look at this. Okay, this is where I think the design first started to work.
Maggie: You were 12?
Theresa: Yeah, so the drawing is a little rough, but I like the design, right? I mean, this was way before anybody was doing block prints.
Maggie: Yes, it was. It's very good. Your drawings are very good. They're consistent. You have a very distinctive style. You mother must have been very proud of you.
Theresa: Can't tell you how many times I sat around the dinner table and heard about our latest crisis program to save abused women. You know, according to my mom, this was my refusal to face reality and make a contribution to the world.
Maggie: But you didn't stop.
Theresa: Yeah, I did. I mean, eventually I did. You know, you can only hear that for so long before-- I did. I stopped drawing. I stopped believing that I could be anything, but anyway, these are good, right? I have a talent?
Brady: You want me to convince my dad to sell you a still big company for less than asking price?
Nicole: At first. Less at first, but I am good for it.
Brady: I don't get it. Nicole, this is not just a challenge. This is like tying an anvil around your neck. If you bite off more than you chew, it could--
Nicole: Okay, why don't you want to help me, Brady?
Brady: Hold on. I didn't say that.
Nicole: You said everything but yes. Why?
Brady: I don't think you should get yourself involved in something rash that could backfire.
Nicole: You don't trust me, do you?
John: I--I didn't-- it didn't really feel like that kind of a call.
Marlena: Of course not, because it's your job. It's your duty, so it's easy for you.
John: Doc, I didn't plan this. They just called. It'll be a day or two, tops.
John: This is torture for me.
Marlena: You think?
John: Well, not as much torture as the look on your face right now, but enough.
Marlena: This doesn't work.
John: Doc, I'm gonna make it up to you. I promise. You are the most important aspect in my life, and we have worked so hard to get back to this point. I don't want to blow it.
Marlena: Then don't.
Joey: Why did I have to come here?
Kayla: Because I didn't want to get into this in the middle of my family pub, and apparently you needed a little space.
Joey: Space? So no one can hear you scream?
Kayla: You know, Joey, I need your help with this. You didn't want to go back to school in Ohio. You made that spectacularly clear. So I worked so hard to get you placed here in a school in Salem, and you are making a joke.
Joey: I'm not a potted plant.
Joey: I don't want to be placed.
Kayla: What, you don't want to go back to school? I'm sorry, you have to. It's the law.
Joey: I didn't have to go to Ohio. You just dumped me there after dad took off.
Kayla: You know, I never heard anything about that--
Joey: Did you want to hear? I hated that place, and this other place would be the same. I don't want prep school. It's not me.
Kayla: Well, what is you, Joey?
Joey: Public school is fine.
Kayla: No, I--I don't think that's a good fit for you.
Joey: But it's what I want. Why don't you for once ask me what I want, instead of always--
Kayla: Is this because-- is this because your dad took off?
Joey: What? That is so random.
Kayla: Look, I know that you've been so angry with him. I was too.
Joey: Yeah, right. You're the reason he took off in the first place.
Steve: What the hell is that supposed to mean, anyway?
Steve: How are things going with your family reunion?
Steve: It's hard to say.
Victor: Not for me. In a word, it sucks. Not going anywhere. So you come over here and rattle my cage about Bo. Go home, Steve. Take care of your own business.
Steve: I can do more than one thing at a time.
Victor: Not when one is an uphill climb, and the other one is impossible. You want to prove to Kayla that you're back and that you're reliable? Go be reliable. Leave Bo out of it. Not gonna make any points with me or with hope. God knows you're not gonna help Bo.
John: You're right.
Marlena: So you do see how unfair it is of you to romance me and then do a 180-degree turn, leaving me alone, wondering if you're gonna be dead or alive the next time I see you.
John: This is john black. I can't make it into D.C. Today, so why don't we reschedule for first thing next week? I'm sure. It's gonna have to wait. Thanks.
John: Should have done that the first time.
Marlena: Yeah, thank you. Why didn't you? I know why.
Marlena: Because you made it all up. There never was a meeting. You made up the meeting so you could cancel it and then be my hero.
John: You have a devious mind, don't you?
Marlena: Yeah, yeah, let me see your phone.
John: No, come on, don't.
Marlena: Let me just take a look who you were talking to.
John: No, no, no.
Marlena: Come on.
John: Is that really what you think of me?
Marlena: You know exactly what I think of you. Let me take a look. Let me take a--
Brady: It's not about trusting you.
Brady: I know you mean everything you're saying. I'm being protective.
Nicole: Of who? John? Because I don't need protecting.
Brady: Until you do.
Nicole: Okay, things are a lot worse than I thought if you can't imagine me succeeding.
Brady: Hold on, hold on. That's not true. I didn't say that.
Nicole: I remind you of a time when I kicked butt running a business, but it doesn't seem to register.
Brady: All right, look, I don't know, I don't know. Listen, maybe-- maybe you're right. I am skeptical, but you have screwed up a bit since then.
Nicole: Who hasn't? Okay, you know what? Maybe my screw-ups were more dramatic than some.
Brady: I can probably give you a run for your money on that count.
Nicole: Yes, you can, but somehow you get a second chance, third, fourth, fifth, sixth--
Brady: All right, true, true.
Nicole: Because Brady, people want to see you do well. You know, maybe if you help me, people want to see me do well. You owe it to me.
Nicole: Yeah, and you owe it to yourself, because you were a former screw-up. Do this, and you could be the patron saint of former screw-ups.
Brady: Ooh. Would I get my own day?
Nicole: And a statue.
Theresa: This is one I put together last night. And listen, they're just preliminary, okay? They're more impressions.
Maggie: Why didn't you tell your mother that this was your passion?
Theresa: Well, I couldn't. I had already heard a verdict.
Maggie: It's hard to believe that you couldn't speak up and make her understand.
Theresa: Right. So this is my fault.
Maggie: No, it's not.
Theresa: Never mind that my brother sucked all the air out of the room, and my mom was... I guess I just let their judgments shut me up, and then I found boys, and I just checked out. But listen, that was a long time ago, and I'm taking charge of my dreams now. You think the work is good, right?
Maggie: Yeah, it is. Listen, I'm no expert, but I know what I like.
Theresa: Okay, good, and there's people at basic black who know how to build, who know how to refine things, and I mean, Maggie, their stuff is so well-made, but it's so boring, and I just--I think if they had the right designs, it could be a whole new beginning for them and me.
Maggie: Theresa, it's still a big leap. You could be setting yourself up for a very big fall.
Theresa: I know, but look, Maggie, I can't just start at the bottom and hope that someday somebody lets me take a baby step. Listen, I have a son now, and I have a lot to prove. And I know that it's gonna be hard to convince you, and it's going to be even harder to convince john, but I am not going to give up on my dreams this time, okay? So listen, here it is. Here's what I want and what I'm willing to give you for it. Listen, Maggie, I know that you think I'm a hot mess, and maybe it's hard for you to imagine me succeeding anywhere, but come on. Isn't that the beginning of every success story, of every meeting you've ever been to? Just think about it.
Kayla: Did your father say that?
Joey: He didn't have to. I can tell.
Kayla: You know, you're right, Joey. I have made choices for you, but I'm the mom, and that's my job. I tried to make the very best choices I could, and I'm sorry if you felt that you didn't have a big enough say in that. We can do better with that. You know, Joey, I never wanted this to be your childhood. I--I didn't want you to come from a broken home.
Joey: Then why did you break it?
Kayla: Your dad and I just... we got to a place where it wasn't working.
Joey: You just gave up.
Joey: You drove him away, and then he stayed away.
Kayla: No, no, no, that's not what happened. You are making this so hard for me. I don't want to talk bad about your dad, and god knows I have made mistakes, but there's one thing that you need to be very clear about. I am not the reason your father left.
Steve: You're right. Things are a little bit rough with Kayla and Joe right now, but I'm not giving up on them, and I still want to find Bo.
Victor: Does this give you a convenient excuse to leave town again and look noble doing it?
Steve: You really think I'm that big a dog?
Victor: I know you are.
Steve: Victor, I am not trying to duck out of town, and not that it's any of your business, but yeah, I would like to try to prove to Kayla that she can trust me again.
Victor: And you think finding her brother is gonna do that for you?
Steve: I'm worried about Bo. What's up with you, man? Have you just gotten used to it? I want to find him for his sake and for hope's and Kayla's and Ciara's and yours. So why don't you stop treating me like the enemy and help me figure out what happened to Bo?
Marlena: Oh, you didn't.
John: Huevos rancheros.
Marlena: Everything is forgiven.
John: Really, it was that easy? No, really? If I promised you huevos rancheros every morning in bed, you might want to make this official?
Marlena: Official? What does official mean?
John: Married. I mean, do we really want to live in sin at this point in our lives?
Marlena: I kind of like it.
John: What's it gonna take, doc? I mean, last night was some of my best stuff.
Marlena: I know.
John: I was talking about the trip down memory lane.
Marlena: So was I.
John: And it wasn't enough? You know I'm not gonna give up, doc, and I will wear you down.
Marlena: Let's make a deal.
Brady: I've always wanted my own statue, you know.
Nicole: Ten feet tall. I'll put it in the front offices. I'll even name the company after you.
Brady: It's already called basic black.
Nicole: See? It's meant to be.
Brady: Okay. Listen, I'm not sure about going to my father and asking him to lower the price, but I will lend you half the money to--
Nicole: Really? Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Brady: It's okay.
Nicole: Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. You're wonderful. Thank you so much. You have no idea how much this means to me. Thank you, thank you.
Brady: I'm sure I'm doing the right thing.
Nicole: You're the best friend ever. Oh, I can always rely on you. Thank you so much.
Brady: You're welcome.
Victor: No, I didn't get used to Bo being gone, and it made no sense to me that he would go.
Steve: So you must have checked it out.
Victor: Of course I did.
Steve: And I'm not talking about calling the ISA.
Victor: Of course not. That would get me nowhere. I did manage to scrape together a few clues, which I sent off to my people.
Steve: Did they come up with anything?
Victor: Not much. I'll show you the report.
Steve: That's a start. We're gonna bring Bo home.
Victor: You know, if he wanted it.
Victor: I'm not sure Bo wants to be home. You know, he didn't have to go, but he chose work, and it cost him his wife. Sound familiar?
Nicole, thank you, thank you.
Brady: You're welcome, welcome, welcome.
Nicole: Oh, and it's official; it's St. Brady day. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.
Brady: Go get 'em.
Nicole: Oh, hey, did I thank you?
Brady: I don't think you have yet.
Nicole: Thank you!
Brady: You're welcome.
Theresa: She seemed happy. What, did she win the lottery?
Brady: She thinks. I'm not so sure, though.
Theresa: What's going on?
Brady: Nicole is making a bid on basic black, and she asked for my help.
Theresa: You can't do that to me.
John: What kind of deal?
Marlena: I will exchange wedding vows with you.
John: I'll call St. Luke's right now.
Marlena: No, no. Slow down. I will exchange wedding vows with you right here on the bed.
John: Doesn't sound very official.
Marlena: It's not. It's provisional. If you can walk the talk for one month, then we'll make it real.
Kayla: You've grown up so much. You know, it's--it's hard for me to accept that sometimes, but you're right. You are old enough to have a bigger say in the decisions and to hear more things.
Joey: The truth?
Kayla: You know, Joey, I-- I don't know if there's only one truth. Your dad's a pretty restless guy. When I first met him, I don't think he committed to anything that wasn't right in front of his face. I don't know if he can be a steady person for anyone. You need to hear that. I have tried so hard to protect us, and I won't let him hurt me again like that, and I hope he doesn't hurt you either. But I guess that's for you to decide now.
Steve: That's one flimsy report.
Victory: Yeah, well, my men could only follow Bo so far. They were in the Balkans, and they got grabbed by some ISA shadow. They said they were putting Bo's life in jeopardy.
Steve: So you had to back off.
Victor: Well, I didn't want to get him killed. The ISA promised that they would make sure that he could get through to us in the future.
Steve: Did he?
Victor: A couple of letters.
Steve: Do you have those letters?
Victor: Oh, like letters from camp. "I'm fine. How are you?" Absolutely nothing of value.
Steve: Well, let me take a look just in case.
John: Doc-- no, Marlena. I take you to be my wife... and I will love and cherish you and honor and protect you, and I'm gonna wake up grateful every morning for that chance. And this time I promise you I'm gonna get it right, to be worthy of you and to give you the life that you have deserved all along, for as long as we both shall live.
John: Ditto? Quite the poet. [Laughs]
Marlena: I knew I was going to spend the rest of my life with you from the first moment I laid eyes on you. I really want this life for us. I really want this to work, and I want to love and honor and cherish you and help make for you the life that you deserve as long as we both shall live.
John: Ditto. [Laughs] And by the power vested in me from my heart, I pronounce us provisionally married. One month?
Marlena: Start the clock.
Theresa: I was serious about buying basic black.
Brady: I'm not doing this.
Theresa: Well, I know you didn't believe me, but I've been working on it ever since, Brady, and listen, if you help Nicole--
Brady: No, no, no. Nicole has corporate experience. She helped me run titan for a while.
Theresa: Sure, and then what? She just walked away, got distracted? Come on, why does she want basic black?
Brady: She sees it as an opportunity.
Theresa: Yeah, but does she have the passion for it, or does she just want the title? Because I have a vision for the company, okay? I have actual plans, not just some flow charts, and--
Brady: Hold on, hold on. You told me that this thing was a plan for a bomb.
Brady: I remember this. It was behind the headboard of your old place. You never let me see what was inside it.
Theresa: That's because I was embarrassed, but I'm not now. Look, these are my designs, okay? This is what basic black needs, and I already had a meeting with Maggie to discuss our equity group.
Brady: Equity group? You have an equity group?
Theresa: Well, it's being formed but--
Brady: Theresa, listen. It's--it's really good to go for things, all right? But--
Theresa: But what? Aim low? Don't expect much? Just be a loser? What, you think because I've made mistakes in the past that that's what I'm gonna do now? Listen, Brady, I just need a chance.
Brady: It's "groundhog day." Oh, my god. My life is "groundhog day."
Brady: This is just the second time I've heard this.
Brady: And it's just as true now as it was before.
Theresa: So does that mean that you'll help me? Because I need big time help with john--
Brady: Hold on, hold on. I can't make you any promises.
Theresa: Why not?
Brady: Because I just told Nicole that I would help her, and I won't back out on that.
Steve: Yeah, these letters are vague. It's more like a travel log.
Victor: Yeah, but you can bet that none of those is where he really is.
Steve: Yeah, probably not. Wait a minute. "The water was so perfect. It was like being in the merchant marines seeing Tahiti for the first time." Well, uh...
Steve: We never went to Tahiti.
Victor: Maybe he went without you.
Steve: No, Bo and I did all our tours together. We never docked in Tahiti, not once. Okay, this one's dated in July.
Steve: "Give my love to hope and Ciara..." July. No happy birthday to Ciara.
Victor: Well, maybe he wrote it in a hurry.
Steve: What, he forgot his daughter's birthday?
Victor: Then it's under stress.
Steve: Victor, those are two things that Bo would never get wrong. Somebody else wrote these letters.
Victor: You think the ISA did it to shut me up?
Steve: Maybe, but if not, Bo is in big trouble. [Coughing]
