Kayla: Ugh. Go away.
[Loud knocking continues]
Roman: Kayla? It's me! Kayla, I know you're in there. I saw your car.
Kayla: [Sighs] Come in.
Roman: I came by to see how you're doing. Steve here?
Kayla: No. And he's not gonna be.
Roman: That sounds kind of final.
Kayla: I meant it to be.
[Bluesy music continues]
JJ: So that's all you got? Okay. Just contact me as soon as you ID the guy. Thanks.
JJ: Come on. Come on. Pick up.
Ben: Don't embarrass yourself again. You know I'm not real. You're just imagining me again, like all those other times. I'm beginning to think maybe you want me here.
Ben: Go ahead. Go ahead. Holler for Chad. He'll come running and find you all alone screaming your head off. He'll begin to wonder if you're crazy. Who knows? Maybe you are.
Chad: Well, yeah. I can't come to the station right now. I'm watching Thomas so your sister can take a nap.
JJ: Okay. Local cops in a town called Calexico, California, made an arrest last night.
JJ: So Calexico is right on the Mexican border. The guy they picked up, they said he'd been living out there for--for days just waiting to make his move.
Chad: Well, it doesn't mean it's Ben.
JJ: But the FBI thinks he's in that area. I'm waiting for a positive id as we speak. But the cop contacted us because the guy's crazy eyes looked like the eyes in Ben's mug shot.
Abigail: [Breathing deeply]
Ben: I'm real, all right. But no one is going to believe that now. Are they?
Abigail: [Sighs] No. No, you... you are not real. You are not real. I know... I know you were not here.
[Phone continues ringing]
Abigail: It's just the phone, Abby. Just the phone. [Clears throat]
[Phone continues ringing]
Ciara: Abigail? It's Ciara Brady.
Ciara: Did I call at a bad time?
Abigail: No, it's fine. [Clears throat] What's up?
Ciara: I heard you talking to your mom on the phone, and it sounded like you were looking for a babysitter.
Abigail: I am.
Ciara: I was wondering if I could come over and talk to you about it.
Abigail: Yes. Uh, yeah. Yeah, why don't you come by right now?
[Light bluesy music]
What'll you have?
Tina: Vodka on the rocks, please.
[Bluesy music continues]
Steve: No offense, but I'm flying solo tonight.
Tina: You don't remember me. You're Steve Johnson, right?
Steve: Yeah. You look a little bit familiar.
Tina: My name's Tina... Tina Bradley. And you saved my life once. You risked your life doing it.
Steve: Well, I do that a lot.
Roman: You threw Steve out?
Kayla: No. Like I said, I told him... I couldn't live with him like that anymore. And I-- I gave him the ring back.
Roman: Well, I-- I'm wondering about the timing here.
Kayla: I know.
Roman: Kayla, the director of the ISA kept Steve from going to trial today. Both Steve and Joey are off the hook.
Kayla: Yeah, Joey may be off the hook legally, but he's got to figure out how to live with this for the rest of his life. And so do I, roman. It keeps coming back to me that Joey wouldn't even be in this mess if I hadn't taken Steve back.
Roman: Okay, I get that.
Kayla: I love Steve, and I always will. And I--I was gonna stand by him through the trial and everything that could happen after that. But when it all just sort of went away, I... I just stood there and I realized that I-- I couldn't go back to living with him like that.
Roman: [Sighs] You have had a pretty bumpy ride since he's been back, yeah.
Kayla: You know, Steve-- Steve really likes it up there on the tightrope. And these last few months, if nothing else, have convinced me that I hate it.
Chad: Well, let me know the minute you hear anything. Thanks, JJ. Hey. Did you have a good nap?
Abigail: Yeah, I did. What were you talking to JJ about?
Chad: He found out something that, uh, might mean Ben's back behind bars.
Abigail: What did he find out?
Chad: Well, the police here got a call from a cop in a little town near the border of California and Mexico. They caught a guy trying to sneak across; thought that his eyes looked like Ben's eyes from his mug shot.
Abigail: What do you think? Do you think that it's Ben?
Chad: I don't know what to think. JJ's waiting for them to id the guy.
Ben: Go ahead. Holler for Chad. He'll come running and find you all alone screaming your head off.
Abigail: Hmm? I just-- I want to come with you.
Chad: No, no, no. Don't--
Abigail: I'll get Thomas dressed--what?
Chad: Don't wake him up. He'll freak out.
Abigail: Oh, that's right. Yeah, you're right.
Chad: There's guards all over the place, okay? You and Thomas are gonna be fine.
Abigail: I know.
These kids claim they have an appointment with Mrs. DiMera.
Theo: Uncle Chad!
Chad: Hey! Hey, buddy. How're you doing?
Theo: Good. How are you?
Abigail: Yep. Um... I'm sorry I didn't tell you about the appointment. Ciara is interested in possibly babysitting for us.
Chad: Oh, uh... great.
Ciara: You sure it's not a bad time?
Abigail: Yeah. Chad was just, uh, going to go out, some errands. And I can fill him in on the interview and everything later. Everything's fine. Really.
Kayla: I didn't want Steve to go to prison, you know that. But when it was over, he acted like, "well, its all clear." I don't think that he really understands the fallout of this whole situation.
Roman: Come on. You know Steve. He doesn't sweat the small stuff.
Kayla: Well, I do. And this isn't small to me.
Roman: Kayla, there are lots of people in this world who would give up their nice, stable, unexciting lives in a heartbeat
Kayla: Well, have them experience their teenage son confessing that he killed his father's ex-girlfriend, and then bring 'em back around, and we'll go over the glories of the adventurous life.
Roman: I hear that. I hear you.
Kayla: I know two things: I cannot go back to living like that and Steve is never gonna change.
Tina: My husband and I were on our first Caribbean vacation. Frank got sick with the flu and stuck in the room and I got bored. So when this local offered to show me the island, like an idiot, I said okay. I ended up alone on a dark street with this guy and a couple of his buddies. They all had knives. And if you hadn't come along, I'd be dead now.
Steve: I'm glad I could help you out then.
Tina: You were like my guardian angel. So when I walked by this place and I looked in the window and I saw you, I just couldn't believe it happened twice.
Steve: What? What did?
Tina: My life needs saving again... and here you are.
Chad: Hey. Did you hear anything yet?
JJ: Still waiting.
Chad: Come on, man. I just want this to be over.
JJ: How's Abigail doing?
Chad: She says she's fine.
JJ: You don't believe her?
Chad: Look. I don't know. I--I just--I don't think she wants me to know how scared she really is.
JJ: Listen. It makes sense for her to be scared. She knows Ben's still out there.
Chad: Yeah, I know. But it's not just him, all right? I think she's scared of what's going on inside of her own head.
Ciara: Is it hard for you to be back here?
Theo: Everything's still the same... but he's gone.
Theo: Yeah, he was Nonno to me. He taught me to play chess, introduced me to the opera. "La Traviata" was his favorite.
Ciara: I shouldn't have brought you back here. I didn't even think.
Theo: I didn't think about it either. I just wanted to help you.
Ciara: Thanks, Theo.
Abigail: Hi, I have lemonade, if you guys want some lemonade.
Theo: Thank you.
Abigail: Yeah. Thomas is a very, very good sleeper.
Ciara: I can't wait to see him when he's awake.
Abigail: I'm so glad you're interested in possibly babysitting, Ciara. Do you have a lot of experience?
Ciara: Uh, some. I know it's a really big responsibility, but I'm--I think I'm up for it.
Abigail: Okay. Well, um, before--before you make a final decision, um... I just--I want to let you know that chase was here last night.
Abigail: He was looking for a place to stay.
Abigail: Chad sent him away. Um, but... Ciara, I know what he did to you.
Ciara: Do you not want me to work for you because of that?
Abigail: You and I both have been through hell, and I get it. I understand. I just want to make sure. Are you really okay?
Ciara: I am. I'm not gonna let what happened to me, you know... change me.
Abigail: Good. Good. I'm so glad to hear that. Because you know what? That is the exact same promise I made to myself.
Ciara: Yeah, and... it's great to have a sweet little baby to keep you strong.
Ciara: How are you?
Abigail: Well, uh, I struggled there for a while, but I'm winning.
Ciara: Yeah. Me too.
Roman: Just look. I-- I know what you're saying. I do. But I also know what it's like coming home every night to a house where nobody's waiting.
Kayla: Well, I'm not taking him back because I'm desperate.
Roman: That's not what I'm saying. That is not what I'm saying. What I'm trying to say here is this: Ending this is not the only answer. Steve loves you. Hell, Steve would die for you and Stephanie and Joey.
Kayla: Well, maybe I'm keeping him from that. Do you know how many times I have picked the pallbearers for his funeral? I mean, how long can his luck hold out?
Roman: I don't know. I don't.
Kayla: I don't either. But when it does run out, I don't want to be watching from the front row.
Steve: So what makes you think your life is in danger?
Tina: Frank, my husband, he died a couple of years ago.
Steve: Well, I'm sorry to hear that.
Tina: Look. The only thing I knew about his job was that he, um... was an accountant. I mean, I'd ask him about his work, and he would just say it was boring or it was too hard to explain. I never knew how we could afford such things like that trip to the Caribbean. Then one night, he told me he had to go out. He said he was meeting somebody from work, and... he never came back.
Steve: So what happened?
Tina: The story they told me is that our car got a flat and when frank got out to check it, he got hit by another car. Shortly after his funeral, the police showed up at my door. They said the reason why frank never talked about his work is because the people he worked for were criminals. And then the police looked into our financial records, and they discovered that frank had been stealing from his bosses.
Steve: So then his accident wasn't an accident.
Tina: Right. And now I think these people are after me. I moved back here to try to get away from them, but--but now I keep seeing the same guy outside my building every night. I mean, they can't get money back from me. I barely have enough to live. Or maybe they're just trying to get even. I don't know. But I'm really scared.
Steve: Okay, so can you describe this guy you keep seeing?
Steve 2: Really, dude?
Tina: Kind of stocky.
Steve: You're gonna get involved?
Tina: Really good look at his face because he's always wearing a-- a hat. Like, a--a baseball hat, I think.
Steve: What team?
Steve 2: Weren't you listening to Kayla when she told you why she can't be with you anymore? What the hell's the matter with you?
Chad: So now Abby thinks that she shredded her own nightgown on our wedding night.
Chad: She knows Ben wasn't in the hotel room, but it's the only logical explanation that she could come up with.
JJ: Those tranquilizers that Fynn prescribed? They're not doing anything?
Chad: No, I thought that they would, but they're not enough. She's having nightmares about Ben... she jumps every time the phone rings. Her mind's playing tricks on her.
JJ: She thinks she saw him again?
Chad: Yes. Yes, and to her it's real even though she knows it can't be. JJ, this lunatic has killed four people and he's on the loose. You guys can't find him anywhere?
JJ: Maybe the guy in California is him.
Chad: Yeah, well, I hope so. Because right now, the only place I know he is is in her head. And that scares the hell out of me.
Ciara: I'm thinking about taking a English A.P. Class during the summer, but I don't have to.
Abigail: Oh, no, that's fine. Really, it's okay. You, uh... we're not gonna need someone 9:00 to 5:00 anyway.
Ciara: No, no, no. It's okay. Might as well start now, right?
Ciara: Hi, Thomas. I don't know if you know this, but we're related. You're named after my great-grandpa.
Abigail: Wow. It looks like you guys are bonding already.
Ciara: Yeah. We're gonna be besties. Right, Thomas?
Abigail: Well, I'll check with Chad to see, um-- [Clears throat] If everything's cool with him, and, um, how soon do you think you can start?
Ciara: Oh. I feel like I already started.
Abigail: [Laughs] Okay. So how about tomorrow then? I can text you the exact time.
Ciara: Yeah, that's great. Um, summer break isn't for a while, so I hope it's okay if I can only come over after school for a couple months.
Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, perfect. Whatever.
Ciara: But I'll be available 24-7 after school's out.
Abigail: Perfect. That's--that's great. [Laughs]
Ciara: You ready to go?
Theo: Uh, yeah, if you are.
Abigail: Hey. Well, here. Let me take him from you. Okay, you. My little guy. Hi. Okay. Well, it was good to see you; you too, Theo.
Ciara: Well, uh, I guess we should take off.
Theo: Um, unless you want us to wait until uncle Chad gets back.
Abigail: No, no. I'll be fine. Besides, um, the FBI says that Ben is probably, you know, 2,000 miles from here by now. And you saw all the-- all the guards we have. So I'll be okay. Thank you, though.
Theo: You're welcome.
Abigail: Yeah. Really good to see you both.
Theo: You too.
Ciara: Yeah, it's good to see you too.
Abigail: Yeah. Bye. That's your new babysitter, Thomas.
Abigail: Be careful.
Theo: We will.
Abigail: Bye. [Sighs]
Abigail: Hi. I just made some lemonade. If you want to come in; have some.
Oh, thanks, ma'am. Maybe when I go on break.
Abigail: Okay. It's just in the kitchen.
You and the baby okay?
Abigail: Yep. Yeah, we're good. [Sighs] Okay. [Sighs] [Gasps]
Steve: When was the first time you saw this guy outside your building?
Tina: Last week, I think.
Steve 2: Hey. I'm trying to help you here.
Steve: Anything else happen? Uh, like weird phone calls? Wrong numbers? Hang-ups? Anything like that?
Tina: There were a couple hang-ups.
Steve 2: Man, you really are addicted.
Tina: I can't tell you how much better I feel just talking to you. I thought I was all alone in this, and now I have someone looking out for me. You're the only one I can turn to right now, the only one that knows what to do.
Steve: Okay. Give me your address and phone number.
Steve 2: Wow. You are hell-bent on screwing up your life aren't you; losing everything that matters most? Well, go on. Prove Kayla's right. A woman in trouble walks into the room, and your wife and kids go right out the window. You're a danger junkie, man. So go on. Take the case. Prove to Kayla she knows you better than you know yourself.
Roman: Yeah. Okay, I'll be there in ten minutes. Sorry about that. They need me at a crime scene.
Kayla: Oh, well, I have to get to the hospital anyway.
Roman: What? Today? You should rest. Come on.
Kayla: No. I need to keep busy. I know what I told Steve before. It really knocked the wind out of his sails. He thought the bad times were behind us. I didn't enjoy doing that to him.
Roman: I'm sure you didn't.
Kayla: But it had to be done. Okay.
Kayla: Oh. [Scoffs]
Roman: Are you okay? Kayla? Are you okay?
Chad: Okay, so? Did they find him?
JJ: Look, the cop I talked to, he said that they're gonna have to get their guy shaved so they can actually see what his face looks like.
Chad: Oh, come on.
JJ: He said it wasn't gonna be easy.
JJ: Maybe that's them. It's them. They've sent a picture.
Abigail: You are not really real. You are not here. I know that you are not really here. Just get out of my head! [Laughs] Okay.
Abigail: Okay. Oh, honey. It's okay, honey.
Abigail: [Sighs] That's right. Mommy did it. Yeah. Mommy was just acting a little weird, huh? Yeah, everything's-- everything's just fine, Thomas. Hey, Thomas. Thomas. Hey, you want to go upstairs? Oh, yes. Mommy's gonna take good care of you. Let's go get your bunny. Okay. Let's go get that bunny. Yeah?
Chad: Voicemail. Hey, Abby. I'm here with JJ, and we just got a picture of the guy in California.
Abigail: Yes. There we go. Look. Yeah, I know. It's your fluffy bunny. It's your favorite, Thomas. Isn't it? Yeah, it's your favorite. Thomas? Thomas? Hey. Thomas, can you smile for mommy? Yeah? Thomas? Hey. Thomas, please? Honey, please smile for mommy. Please?
Kayla: See? I'm-- I'm a lot better.
Roman: You're not just saying that?
Kayla: No. I think I just--you know, I forgot to have lunch. I'm fine.
Roman: Yeah, and you've also been under a ton of stress. So promise me you will take care of yourself.
Kayla: That's what I'm trying to do.
Roman: One more thing before I go.
Kayla: Yes, big brother.
Roman: I know you meant what you told Steve. But if he wants to try to work things out, don't just turn him down before you think it through.
Kayla: I didn't know you were such a Steve fan.
Roman: Oh, I know his faults, believe me. But I also know this: Steve Johnson is one of a kind.
Kayla: Yes. He's that.
Roman: All right. Bye, sis.
Kayla: Thanks for coming over.
Roman: Okay. Like I said, take care of yourself.
Kayla: Got it. Got it. [Groans] Okay.
Steve: Listen. I'm really glad I was there that night in the alley to help you out. But I'm not that guy anymore. What you need now is the police.
Tina: But I'm afraid of them. What if they think that I helped frank steal all that money?
Steve: Well, did you?
Steve: Then the police are your best bet.
Tina: If you say so.
Steve: I do. Good luck to you, Tina. You're a pretty smart dude. But there's no need to gloat.
Steve 2: [Chuckles softly]
Theo: What are looking at?
Ciara: The course requirements for A.P. English. If I want to do this, the job, and what my mom expects me to do, I'm not gonna have any time, like, at all.
Theo: You said you wanted to be busy.
Ciara: Yeah, but this is, like, crazy busy. I mean, the A.P. English reading list is, like, as long as my arm, and I have to write an essay every week. I'm not gonna have any time for myself.
Theo: What about the really good summer movies coming out?
Ciara: And we were supposed to watch those together, but I just don't know if I'm gonna have time.
Theo: Yeah, uh, it seems like you got a lot to think about. So, um... I'll just go on home.
Ciara: No, no. I didn't say that I wasn't gonna have time for you. But if I'm busy... I don't want to be in a movie where I can't talk to you.
Theo: That's what you meant?
Ciara: Yeah. Look. I have to go home. But I'll see you later? Get it?
Theo: Got it.
Chad: Hi, honey. I'm here with JJ. He just got the picture of the guy in California. And it--it wasn't Ben. I'm really sorry. I know how much you want this to be over, and so do I. But the manhunt is still on, and, um... and they're gonna find him. I'll be home soon. I love you.
Abigail: [Gasps] You're not there. No, I know that you're not there. [Sighs] [Chuckles] You are not real.
Ben: I'm real. Do you want to pinch me?
Abigail: [Gasps] No, you just-- you stay right there. Don't come near me! Help me! Somebody help!
Ben: Save your breath, sweetheart. There's nobody else in the house. And those two rent-a-cop guards you have watching the place? [Scoffs] What a couple losers. One of them's in the guard house having a nice little smoke. And the other's knocked out cold in the bushes outside the front door. I did that. So it's just the two of us, abs. And the way I figure, we have maybe ten minutes together. So let's make the most of them.
Steve: Sweetness? Kayla?
Oh, my God! Dr. Brady!
Ben: You're not getting away from me this time. Okay?
Ben: Do you know what I've gone through to get here; to get into this place and get you away from all of this?
Abigail: What do you want from me, Ben?
Ben: What do I want from you? What do I want from you? The same thing I always wanted, Abigail. For you and me to be together. We were in love. Don't you remember that? Don't you? We were about to be so happy raising our baby together-- our baby. I just--I don't get what happened. You know? Why didn't it work? Why wasn't I good enough for you? Why did you have to love him?
Abigail: I don't get it either. Ben, I don't understand it either. Because the truth is... that it's always been so much better with you.
