Kate: Theresa. There you are.
Theresa: And not for long. Look, I'm rushing home to feed my son.
Kate: He's a chubby little guy. I'm sure he can wait a few moments. Did you get my email? Because you didn't respond. Should I resend?
Theresa: I got the email. I just didn't have time to respond, so...
Kate: This new year's event is not gonna get off the ground by itself, so I don't care if you delegate, I don't care if you do it all yourself, but you need to prioritize. The marketing, the media, profiles.
Theresa: I got the damn email.
Kate: Good. Let me know when you have everything handled.
Theresa: [Sighs] You know, you never even told me what you thought about my designs.
Brady: This is Brady. I-I'm sorry. Who is this? No, I'm not with titan anymore. You want to call the CEO, Philip Kiriakis.
Theresa: [Mocking] Theresa, did you get my email? [Normal voice] Yeah, I got it right here, you witch. [Laughs] Hi. So you're up.
Brady: I'm up.
Theresa: Well, what do you think? You like it?
Joey: [Scoffs] Obsessive much?
Kayla: I think this one's good right here, don't you think? It's pretty.
Joey: Mom, it's fine. Stop worrying.
[Knock at door]
Kayla: Oh. Ooh. [Clears throat]
I'm not sure about this.
It seems a little strange.
Ava: What's to worry about? It's not like we're breaking any laws or anything. I mean, technically.
Ava: Okay, you know what? This should ease your concern. Oh, and one more thing. Forget that you know me.
Miriam: I'm still waiting... for conformation that you're on the job.
Eduardo: Maybe you should have your hearing checked, because I told you... I'm out. I'm done with the life.
Miriam: Then you obviously didn't look at the profile I left you. The one about john black.
John: Hey, doc? Oh, my God, what the hell's going on here? Hey, doc? Honey, it's john. Can you hear me?
Andre: Chad. What are we going to do with you... to make you more of a team player?
Theresa: So it's--it's nice, huh?
Theresa: I'm sorry. Were you on the phone?
Brady: Yeah--um, yeah. Nothing--nothing urgent or anything.
Theresa: Oh, okay.
Brady: Hey, I-- I really like the place. I mean, I can't believe you finished it. It's beautiful.
Theresa: Okay, it's not quite yet, now there are still some finishing touches, but...
[Knock at door]
Theresa: Oh. [Clears throat] Hey, hey, come on in.
Brady: Oh. You got a tree.
Where do you want it?
Theresa: I don't know. Brady, what do you think? Maybe right over there?
Brady: You know what? Yeah. That's a great spot.
Theresa: Perfect. Could you maybe just turn it a little bit?
Brady: Lit--little more. Little more. Perfect.
Theresa: That's perfect.
Brady: That's it. Great spot.
Theresa: Thanks. Here you go. Have a very merry Christmas.
Brady: You too. Thanks, guys.
Theresa: Well? It's our very first Christmas tree.
Brady: First one.
Theresa: Hope you're as excited as I am.
Brady: I am. I am.
Brady: I am, but I also noticed how upset you were when you came through that door.
Theresa: Well, you know, I think it's really sweet that you can read me like that.
Brady: You gonna tell me about it?
Theresa: [Sighs] It's just, it's work stuff, you know? I don't really want to talk about it right now. Speaking of, though, I-- I hope it's okay that I let you sleep in. Just figured you might need it.
Brady: I did. I did.
Theresa: Good. Brady, I'm so happy that you're done with that annoying job for victor and, you know, now you have the freedom to do whatever you want. So...
Brady: Yeah, I do. I mean, I feel-- feel liberated. No doubt about that.
Theresa: Good. I'm--I'm just so happy for you.
Eduardo: I don't care who the profile is on. I'm still out. I'm done.
Miriam: I see. You expect us to just sit back and allow you to reconnect with your family and ask nothing in return?
Kate: Am I interrupting?
Miriam: No, not at all. Kate Roberts, isn't it?
Kate: Do we know each other?
Miriam: We do share something in common.
Kate: And what would that be, exactly?
Miriam: This handsome guy.
John: Sweetie, it's john. I'm right here--no, no, no, no, no, no, slow down, slow down. You might be hurt.
Marlena: No, no. I'm fine.
John: No, you might not be. Let me get some help, all right?
Marlena: No, I'm okay. I'm--ow! I'm okay.
John: I'm not so sure about that. What happened? Can you tell me?
Marlena: Yeah, I, uh... I was in... in a session, and then you were here.
John: Ah, it's chloroform. Somebody knocked you out. Why would somebody do that?
Marlena: I don't know. I don't know.
John: You said you were having a session.
John: With whom? With whom?
Marlena: Chad DiMera.
Andre: There is nothing more important than family, is there? Of course not. That's because you are a DiMera, through and through. And that is why you're going to save our family. And the way you save our family is you leave Abigail and you go after the lovely belle Brady.
Andre: Ah, Chad. There's nothing more important than family. Nothing, and no one, is more important than your unswerving devotion to the DiMeras. No matter how much you think you love Abigail, your family comes first. Focus on belle... not Abigail. No, no, no, no.
Andre: No, no. You don't fight it because you can't win. You've got to let go of Abigail forever. Let belle into your heart.
Brady: Hi, belle.
Belle: Hi, bro.
Belle: What's up? Have a minute?
Brady: For you? Of course.
Belle: Wow, you really are settling down.
Brady: Stop it, okay? I have a kid now. This is what we do. It comes with the territory.
Belle: Yes, okay, definitely. Anyway, I'm here because I need some advice.
Brady: Is this about Sami and the money that she deposited into that account for you?
Belle: Yes, it is. So I've been thinking about it, and I still don't see how I can justify holding on to it. Not to mention that I can't jeopardize my career over something like this.
Brady: Mm-hmm. Well, DiMera would never report it.
Belle: I know. He can't 'cause it's dirty.
Brady: But you don't want it.
Belle: No, no, I don't, I don't, so anyway, I picked a bunch of different charities, and I'm just gonna give it all away. Is that crazy?
Steve: Hey, Joe. Okay. So good to be home.
Joey: Yeah, it's, uh, it's a good place. I mean, mom made it look really nice, so, I think you'll like it.
Steve: I already do because you two live here. I mean, look at us. All under one roof again, huh?
Kayla: And we really like this house.
Steve: Well, and it's too big for just the two of you.
Kayla: So, uh, what do you think? You like the way I decorated it?
Steve: Well, let me look. Yeah. It's beautiful, sweetness.
Joey: Especially where mom placed the poinsettias, right? Doesn't that make a major difference?
Kayla: Stop, stop.
Steve: It does. Yeah. But I think there's one thing, one very important thing still missing. Christmas tree.
Kayla: Oh, well, we were waiting for you to come pick one out with us.
Steve: Let's do it right now. Let's hit the road, go to the tree lot.
Joey: I'll go get my jacket.
Kayla: I'll get mine too.
Steve: No, no, no. Wait. Sweetness... I'm so happy.
Ava: A dream... come...true.
Kate: We have Eduardo in common. How, exactly?
Miriam: Don't worry. I'm not a threat. Eduardo and I used to be involved, but no longer. Now I'm in town for business, and surprise, surprise, I run into the man here. Oh, my name is Miriam.
Kate: Well, you know my name. How?
Miriam: From Eduardo, of course. He's told me all about you. Well, I don't want to overstay my welcome. It was nice to meet you, Kate. And I do hope you two are happy together and that nothing gets in the way.
Kate: So... who is that really?
John: Here you go, honey. So tell me, why exactly was Chad here?
Marlena: He was having a session. I can't tell you about it.
John: All right. Probably used the session as a diversion, had someone come in from behind, knock you out. You know, by the way, we got to get you moved to a better place, more secure--this is the second time you've been attacked here.
Marlena: Sami. Sami, I'm-- I bet they were trying to find out where Sami is. Try to get a location. You--you think somebody else was helping him?
John: Andre. Yes, Stefano, his money, Sami. Leave it to that damn family to stick together in a time of crisis.
Andre: Father, we've discussed this at length. The only way we're gonna be able to track Sami and get our money back is through belle. Now, I regret having to put Chad in a compromising position.
Stefano: "Compromising position"? You're brainwashing him, you fool!
Brady: Oh, Theresa.
Theresa: Hello. Hi. Hi.
Brady: Theresa, this is my little sister belle.
Theresa: Oh, yeah, belle. Of course, Brady's told me so much about you. Welcome back to Salem.
Belle: Yeah, thanks.
Theresa: So I-I understand that you're starting a new career.
Belle: Yeah, law practice.
Belle: Yeah--well, before I get that started, I have some other business to take care of.
Theresa: Oh, busy, busy.
Belle: Mm-hmm, so, uh, yeah. I'm gonna get going, Theresa. So nice to meet you.
Brady: Hey. I know you have this under control. Don't worry about it, all right? You're gonna make the right choice.
Belle: Thanks. Thanks for listening.
Brady: I always do.
Brady: Be good.
Theresa: I have a-a little confession to make. I hope it doesn't make you mad.
Brady: [Fake laugh] Depends on what it is.
Theresa: Okay, I heard a little bit about what you were talking about before, with belle.
Brady: You mean about the...
Theresa: The money from Sami.
Brady: The money, yeah.
Theresa: Uh, Sami, and, um-- you know, I-I just understand that she wants to give it to charity, and she doesn't really know what to do with it, and, um--well, look, I know it was a private conversation and that's fine. It's probably none of my business, but I was just thinking, you know, if she has a large amount of money and she hasn't really decided what to do with it yet, I might have the perfect solution for her.
Brady: I know that look. I know it and it worries me. I don't like it.
Theresa: No, hey, come on. Do not assume the worst, okay? Just listen, it's a really good idea. Okay?
Theresa: I mean, yes, it benefits me, but it also benefits belle. It's a win-win-win situation.
Brady: Win-win-win situation. That's three wins. Three wins.
Theresa: Well, Kate wins too.
Brady: Why do you care about Kate winning?
Theresa: Just--okay, hear me out. What if belle uses the money to buy Kate out?
Brady: From basic black?
Theresa: Exactly, it's a "hello, new silent partner," and "good-bye, mistress of darkness and misery."
Kate: So how many more exes are going to come slithering out from under the woodwork? Please tell me you don't have children with that one.
Eduardo: Wasn't that kind of relationship. Miriam. She's completely in my past now.
Kate: You're gonna have to give me a lot more than that if you want me to be reassured.
Eduardo: Well, maybe you shouldn't be.
Brady: See, I thought that you three partners were all getting along, that everything was fine.
Theresa: Yeah, it was, uh, fleeting, as it turns out.
Brady: Oh. That explains your mood when you first came in. Did you and Kate have it out earlier or something?
Theresa: Seriously, Brady, I think--you know what? If that bitch thought she could get away with it, she would kick me out on my butt the first chance she got.
Brady: Oh, you think?
Theresa: Yeah, I know. I mean, if belle were to do this, right, if she were to buy Kate out, she would have a place to park her money and then just get on with her career. And hey, maybe you could be partners with her. It'd be a great way for you to reconnect with your sister.
Brady: There could be some benefits to me upping my investment, but... I can't tell my sister what to do with her money, Theresa.
Theresa: Right. Yeah, okay. I just figured maybe you could suggest it to her.
Brady: Mm-hmm. I'll think about it, okay?
Brady: All right.
[Knock at door]
Theresa: I'll get it.
Nicole: Am I interrupting something?
Theresa: Yeah, actually--
Brady: Actually, no. Not at all.
Kayla: Ooh, so excited.
Joey: Hey, what about this one? Too big?
Steve: Well, it'd be fine for the white house maybe.
Kayla: Okay, well, maybe something a little smaller.
Steve: He's like a little kid again. Isn't he?
Kayla: Yeah. He's sweet.
Steve: Listen, listen. I'll tell you what. Let's not make a quick decision about this, okay? This is our first Christmas tree together in a long time. It's got to be perfect. Right?
Steve: Come on, keep looking.
Kayla: Ooh, so cold out here! Come on, let's pick one!
Steve: Now, remember, no bare spots, no sideways tilt.
Kayla: Well, this one doesn't have any bare spots.
Joey: Mom, that tree's totally tilting, are you kidding?
Kayla: Well, we could probably wedge it up or something.
Steve: No, no, no, no, no. Listen, listen, I'll tell you what I'm gonna do. If we can't find our tree here, I'm going to the woods, and I'm gonna cut us one down.
Kayla: Oh, great, and then you get arrested in the process.
Steve: I'll wear a beaver suit.
Kayla: Oh, nice solution.
Steve: You like that?
Joey: Hey, check that one out. 10:00.
Kayla: He is so happy.
Kayla: Do you really think that somebody was working with him to get his mom and dad back together?
Steve: Well, maybe, but I don't who would be crazy enough to sign off on a stunt like that.
Nicole: Listen, I'm gonna go 'cause I feel like I came at a bad time.
Brady: No, no, no, hold on. Hold on, it's not a bad time. It's a perfectly fine time, and I was about to go running anyway.
Nicole: Oh, you taking the day off?
Brady: Yeah, and I'm taking the rest of my titan career off as well because Philip Kiriakis is the new CEO of titan.
Nicole: Why, did victor fire you?
Theresa: Brady quit. He did it for us.
Brady: Nicole, it's a good thing. I want it. It's fine. All right, I'm gonna go running. We'll decorate the tree when I get back. It's good to see you.
Brady: See you.
Nicole: So... let's talk about the big launch.
Nicole: I looked at your designs and I figured we could go over those.
Theresa: Great. Yeah, definitely.
Nicole: Should we call Kate?
Theresa: Um, you know, why spoil a nice day?
Kate: Actually, that was my ironic voice. I'm not gonna run for the hills, unless you want me to.
Eduardo: How much do you really know about me, Kate? Anything?
Kate: That's a bit of a non sequitur.
Eduardo: Yeah, yeah, well, I'm just saying, with some people, it pays to be a little wary.
Kate: No problems then. That's my default position. Especially when it comes to your gender.
Eduardo: Well, I got to get out of here. You know, I know--I know this has gotten weird, and if it seems like it's too much for you, I understand. No hard feelings. You might want to give it some thought.
John: Whoa, pretty lady. Where do you think you're going?
Marlena: I'm gonna find Chad and confront him.
John: No, no, no, no, no. Not a good time.
Marlena: No? Why not?
John: Because you don't know what happened here. You were unconscious. We don't have any proof of anything.
Marlena: I have all the proof I need.
John: Hold on. Just hold on a second.
[Phone continues ringing]
John: Hold on.
[Phone continues ringing]
John: John Black.
Eduardo: Hey, it's Eduardo. I'm following up on that conversation we had the other day. Can you meet me at that small park off the square?
John: Sorry, no time right now.
Eduardo: Make time, john.
Marlena: What was that about?
John: Just something I need to take care of.
Andre: I'm so glad, Chad, that we had a chance to talk, get to know my little brother better. Can you open your eyes? Look at me. Yes. You're looking a bit weary. Wouldn't you like to rest for a while, so that when you wake up, you'll feel worlds better? Refreshed, restored. And you'll know what to do next, won't you?
Chad: Yes, I will.
Andre: Then why don't you take a nap for a while?
Chad: "Thank you for being my hero and the love of my life. Love, Abby."
Theresa: You know, if you feel like being insulted and talked down to and treated like something that you can just scrape off the bottom of your shoe and not get anything done, then sure, yeah, let's call Kate, let's tell her to swing by.
Nicole: Okay, now that you put it that way, I say we handle this just you and me.
Nicole: But first, before we get down to business, what is up with you and Brady?
Theresa: [Laughs] What's up? Well, we have a kid together, Tate, and he's just so amazing, and we love him so much, and, well, we're trying to raise him together as a family, and it's going--it's going well. It's going really well, actually. You seem really surprised.
Nicole: I am, actually. And not that it's not great, I mean, I'm very happy for Brady, and for you, and--and your son. Really, it's just, I never predicted that you two would get back together. I hope you don't take that the wrong way.
Theresa: No, no, not at all. And I think a lot of people were surprised. They probably didn't think we had a snowball's chance in hell that we'd even get along, let alone live together and raise a kid together and just be really close and... I don't know. I guess it just proves that if you try really hard and you work to change things then good things happen. Great things, actually. But you get that. It's like with you and Daniel, right?
Nicole: Yeah. Like with me and Daniel.
Theresa: So let's just talk about my designs. What did you think?
Nicole: I'm just gonna be blunt.
Nicole: I was blown away.
Theresa: Wait, really?
Nicole: [Chuckles] Really. I mean, they're simple, in keeping in the company name, yet elegant. It's just that...
Theresa: It's just that what?
Nicole: Well, Kate may be a problem. You know, everything we do, it has to get past her.
Theresa: Yeah, I know, and I hate it. Come on, don't you hate it? Of course you do! You do! She drives you just as--she drives you crazy, right?
Theresa: I mean, she--she just waltzes around with her snobby uppitiness and she is meaner than a junkyard dog, okay? She has no taste and she has no talent and you know I'm right.
Nicole: Why don't you tell me how you really feel about her?
Theresa: Come on, look, Nicole, why do we put up with her? I mean, why do we let her push us around?
Nicole: Because we have no choice.
Theresa: What if we did? What if I told you that maybe there was a way we could buy her out?
Andre: I believe you were ready to take a nap. Don't you want to wake up refreshed and ready to go?
John: How you doing, doc? That's good. Listen, this shouldn't take long, I'll see you soon. Love you too.
Eduardo: Hey. We don't have a lot of time, so we need to get right to this.
John: Well, this means you remember something about Winterthorne academy.
Eduardo: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I never forgot. Much as I wish I could.
Joey: And... ah. Is that the last one?
Steve: Yep, that is it.
Kayla: Okay, then I declare this tree decorated.
Steve: Yeah, within an inch of its life.
Kayla: What? I-I don't think it's too much. Do you think it's too much?
Steve: [Chuckles] No.
Steve: It's very pretty.
Kayla: Yeah, I think it's good. You know, um--
Steve: But, hey, wait--
Kayla: You sure there's not one more we could find?
Steve: No, there's--but what--where's the angel? Don't you usually put an angel on the top?
Kayla: Oh, I think it's in a different box.
Joey: Okay, so, uh, now that we're all done, I'm gonna--I'm gonna go hang out with a friend for a little bit.
Steve: Hey, wait a minute. Aren't you hungry? We were gonna have some dinner, man.
Joey: I'll eat something when I get home.
Joey: You and mom should spend a little time together. It's your first night back.
Steve: Okay. Get out of here.
Kayla: What did he say?
Steve: Well, basically, he thinks we should spend a little time together. I think we should do a little of this. Little of this. Huh? And then...
Ava: Ah. Okay, okay.
Andre: Well, father, everything is going according to plan.
Stefano: I don't like the way you are using my son.
Andre: I'm using your son, my brother, to help this family, which will ultimately help him as well, but you can't have it both ways. You want to get your money back? Well, Chad is the key to making that happen, but our only recourse, which you so disparagingly refer to as my scheme, when you come to your senses, you will realize that-- you will thank me, because we're going to recoup our fortune back, and your son is going to come through for us.
Chad: No, no, I can't. I can't, I can't, I just can't. I can't, I can't. I can't.
Belle: Of course, I need to shepardize the case. I'm gonna call you back in just a minute.
Kate: Belle. Hi.
Kate: Heard you were back in town.
Belle: I heard you were running basic black. How's that going?
Kate: Couldn't be better. Although, there is one thing.
Theresa: Okay, I may have found another investor. All right? A silent partner who would remain silent, and she has enough cash to buy Kate out.
Nicole: Theresa, honey, we have a big launch coming up, an important even that needs our full attention, okay? So if we go messing with management, or trying to do a number on Kate, it's just bad timing, okay?
Nicole: I mean, as much as your idea is appealing to me, 'cause yes, sometimes that woman makes me want to tear my hair out and/or strangle her, let's just--just put a hold on it, okay? For now? Yay?
Theresa: Yeah, sure.
Nicole: Great. Totally. All right, listen. I have a few other meetings to get to.
Nicole: So I will give you a call later.
Theresa: Okay. Sure.
Nicole: Seriously, beautiful designs.
Theresa: Thanks, and thanks for the--the vote of confidence. [Sighs]
John: I was pretty sure you were holding out when you said you didn't remember anything about back then.
Eduardo: Yeah, well, you're lucky you don't. The hard truth is, you digging into your past has alarmed certain people. People who like their secrets to remain secrets. And it's put your life in danger.
John: What makes you say that?
Eduardo: Because I'm the man they've ordered to kill you.
Steve: Hey, I'm gonna head out to the store real quick.
Steve: Well, I'd like to get a few things. Maybe a nice rustic loaf, some good cheese, some wine, and when I'm gone, I want you to get a blanket and put it down right over there by the fireplace. We'll have a little picnic.
Kayla: Sounds very romantic.
Steve: Does, doesn't it? I'll be right back.
Kayla: Hurry up.
Steve: Oh, I will.
[Knocking at door]
Kayla: I am going to have to pin a key to your shirt. [Laughs] [Gasps]
Ava: Hello, Kayla.
