Nicole: I just came from seeing Victor.
Brady: Sit down.
Nicole: I was gonna call you. I need some advice.
Brady: Advice? About what?
Nicole: Victor asked me to do him a favor and I was gonna say no, but then I thought about Maggie.
Brady: Why were you gonna say no?
Nicole: Victor asked me to help him get revenge on his brother.
Hope: Hey, Jenkins.
Jenkins: Hey, Commish was cleaning out his desk, and he thought that you might want that.
Hope: Thank you.
Jenkins: See you.
Hope: Detective Brady.
[Distorted voice] When are you going to move on Deimos Kiriakis?
Nicole: Like I said, it's insane, I know.
Brady: All right, first of all, it's not that Deimos doesn't deserve to pay, 'cause he does. Maggie would not want this fight to go on in her name. All right? It's a house, Nicole, it's money, it's replaceable.
Nicole: Okay, but how's a man like Victor supposed to give it all up?
Brady: I don't know, but it's not your problem, it's not my problem. The hell does he want you to do anyway?
Nicole: Oh, just... seduce, marry, and fleece his brother.
Chad: Thanks. I'm on it.
JJ: That about Abigail?
Chad: Yeah, my pi said she used her credit card and checked into a motel outside route 47.
JJ: Let's go.
Chad: Look, if I show up with a cop she's gonna get freaked out.
JJ: I'm not going as a cop, I'm going as her brother. Let's go.
Abigail: Please, you have to stop crying. Thomas, nobody can hear us. Okay? If Ben hears you...
[Thomas continues to cry]
Abigail: Then we won't get out of here.
[Loud bang on wall]
[Thomas continues to cry]
[Loud bang on wall]
Ben: If you don't shut that kid up, I will!
[Thomas continues to cry]
Abigail: Thomas, please. Thomas. You're not hungry. You don't need to be changed. [Whimpers] Please. I don't know wrong. Oh, Thomas, what's wrong with you?
[Thomas continues to cry]
Theresa: Well, if anyone can pull it off, it's you.
Nicole: That's pretty much what Victor said.
Theresa: But that's a compliment, by the way.
Nicole: I know.
Brady: Excuse me, are you-- are you two kidding me right now?
Nicole: Look, Victor and I don't agree on many things, but Maggie has been through so much and I am not gonna let that slimy sob get away with what he did.
Brady: He is slimy, dangerous sob, and you should be staying away from him. You shouldn't crawl into bed with him, Nicole, you're not gonna do it. Please don't do it. If you're not gonna do it for yourself, then-- then do it for me.
Hope: Who the hell are you?
[Distorted voice] You know I can't tell you that. I'm already taking a huge risk by calling you.
Hope: I don't understand what you want from me.
[Distorted voice] Deimos Kiriakis thrives on conflict. Challenge him head-on. That's the only way to get to the truth.
Rafe: Hi. Hi.
Rafe: You okay?
Hope: Yeah. Yeah, I'm--I'm--I'm--I'm good.
Rafe: Who was that on the phone?
Abigail: Please, Thomas.
[Banging on wall]
Abigail: I can't take this anymore. Please. Thomas, please. You know what? Thomas, you know what, I'm just gonna put you down and I'm gonna walk away. That's what they say-- that's what they say to do. "If you can't get your kid to stop crying, you just put it down and you just walk away." That's what you do. [Sighs]
Abigail: [Chuckles] [Sighs] Oh, Thomas, hey. Aw, that's it? You were just tired? You were screaming so much you were tired. That's all it was. Yeah.
Abigail: Oh, Thomas. It's me, isn't it? You can't get calm because I can't. You're suffering because I'm suffering. [Sighs] Thomas... oh, Thomas, I'm so sorry. I need to stop it. I need to sto--
[Door slams open]
Abigail: [Screams] Don't you dare! Don't you dare.
Chad: Abby... Abby, look at me. Abby...
Abigail: You stay there.
Chad: It's okay. You're safe.
Chad: You're safe. Come home with us. Nobody's gonna hurt you, okay?
Nicole: I'm not literally getting into bed with Deimos, Brady. I would never let it get that far.
Brady: Really? What if-- what if you don't have a choice, Nicole? You know, I know that there's nothing you wouldn't do for Maggie. There's nothing I wouldn't do for Maggie, but do you really think this is what she would want? Do you think this is what Daniel would want? You know damn well the both of them would tell you not to do this. Nicole, I am asking you. I am asking you not to do this.
Theresa: Yeah, I mean, what about the company? You know, I-- I make the designs, Brady manages the cash flow, and you schmooze the buyers. We need you, Nicole.
Nicole: I'm not going anywhere.
Brady: Do you remember what happened with Xander? You were so sure that you were gonna put him away. That almost killed you. You almost died. Okay? This is a situation that belongs between Victor and Deimos. I'm so mad at my grandfather for even asking you to get involved in the first place.
Nicole: Okay. All right. All right. All right. Shh. Don't blame Victor, okay? I got myself involved. Old reporter habits die hard, I guess.
Brady: Yeah, well, speaking of dying, this is not a story that I to see on the 5:00 news. Nicole, you're not a cop. You don't have back-up. Please don't do this and leave it to the professionals, okay?
Hope: [Sighs] It was Shawn. The CSI report on the Bronson case came back and the suspect's DNA isn't a match after all.
Rafe: Yeah, back to square one.
Rafe: You feeling any better?
Hope: Yeah, I am. I am feeling much better.
Rafe: Good. Good.
Rafe: You know, when I need a fresh start on a case, really helps me to get out of here. Any chance I can drag you to an early dinner?
Hope: Yeah. Yeah, thanks. That would be, um-- that'd be great. But, actually, um... could I meet you at the pub? Is that what you were thinking? The pub?
Rafe: The pub.
Hope: Yeah, in just a little while?
Hope: There's something I just need to take care of first.
Rafe: Yeah, sure. Sure. Okay. I'll see you soon.
JJ: Abigail... we've got news. Ben is in prison. He's never coming out.
JJ: He can't hurt-- he can't hurt you or Thomas again.
Abigail: Oh, well, that is exactly what you all told me before. You all made me think that I was crazy when I said that I was seeing him, but he was there. He was there the whole time. And he will continue to try to find me. He will keep coming back for me.
Chad: I'm not gonna let that happen.
Abigail: What do you think you could do? [Chuckles] The all-powerful DiMeras and all your guards and the police... you can't stop him. Nobody can stop him!
Abigail: I could've stopped him. I could've stopped him if you hadn't-- if you hadn't-- [Yelling] He's my son! I know how to take care of my son!
Chad: Okay. Okay.
Abigail: No! You don't know! And you don't know! I know what's best for my son! I do and I know how to take care of him because I'm supposed to take care of him! I'm the only one who knows how to keep my son safe! Nobody else knows!
Abigail: You don't know!
Chad: Abby, he needs his mother. Okay? And I need you.
JJ: Mom and I-- Abigail, your family, your friends, we all need you.
Chad: Abby, look. Abby, look. This isn't the life that you want for him. You don't have to do any of this on your own, okay? Unless you want Thomas to grow up with a mother and a father.
[Thomas cooing, crying]
Chad: It's okay. Hey. Hey, little man. Hi. Hi. Shh. Hi. Hi. It's okay. Oh, that's okay.
Chad: It's okay. That's better.
Abigail: Damn it!
JJ: I'll go. I'll be back.
Abigail: He's so quiet.
Abigail: I couldn't leave. I don't want to leave. Chad, I did everything I could. Really, I-- I did everything that I... knew how to do to get him to stop crying... and you came. All you had to do was hold him for two seconds and--
Chad: He was just exhausted. I came in at the right time.
JJ: You can't make a baby fall asleep, right?
Chad: Look how peaceful he is now. He just needs a-- needs a little bit of sleep. So does his mother.
Abigail: When I sleep... I just have nightmares. [Crying] And I wonder if that happens to Thomas. I gave him such a horrible start to his life.
Chad: No, Abby, he is so happy. Look how happy he is. He has two parents that love him. He is little, but he is strong. Just like his mother.
Abigail: [Sobbing] I don't feel very strong right now.
Chad: It's okay. I know. I know. You are.
Chad: You're so strong.
Deimos: Would you like some ouzo, or can I get you something else?
Hope: I'm on duty.
Deimos: Hm. I've heard a lot about you, detective Brady. Although I don't believe we've had the pleasure of meeting.
Deimos: So you're on duty. I assume this is a professional call?
Hope: You're probably aware that Maggie Kiriakis is my aunt.
Hope: Victor was my father-in-law before my late husband's death.
Deimos: I'm really sorry about Bo. I'm kind of surprised that you've been assigned this case. Given your... personal involvement.
Hope: There is no case yet. But you know what I am very curious about? How you managed to take control of Victor's holdings.
Deimos: You just told me that this isn't a criminal matter. So that's between me and my brother.
Hope: I, uh--
Deimos: I don't like to waste time and I bet you don't, either. So here's a novel idea: Why don't you ask me a direct question and I will give you a direct answer.
Abigail: What are you doing here?
Jennifer: Chad said I could wait. Oh, I love you so much.
Abigail: I love you.
Jennifer: Look at me. Oh, I am so glad that you're okay.
Abigail: Am I okay? I mean, am I? I thought it'd be so easy to... be a mom. I thought I'd know what to do and I thought I was so good with kids and that I'd just naturally know--
Jennifer: I know. You are so good with kids and nobody knows just naturally what to do all the time.
Abigail: But you did. You always made it seem so easy.
Jennifer: Oh, honey, it was easy sometimes. Listen to me, after we lost your dad, I felt like I was forced to make some really hard decisions on my own and I struggled and I-- I made some really bad choices. But I have amazing kids... in spite of my shortcomings as a mom.
JJ: I know I didn't make it easy.
Jennifer: The hardest thing in the world... is for a mom to see her children suffer. But I'm telling you I am so grateful because I had a village... literally help me. Let us help you, please.
Hope: Talk to me about Dr. Seth Malcolm.
Deimos: You want to know more about what happened to Bo.
Hope: And to be even more to the point, I have reason to believe that you were involved in Bo's kidnapping... and torture. Is that true?
Deimos: Yes, it is.
Hope: You son of a--
Deimos: But before you do anything... I'm being upfront. I was very careful. My hands are clean.
Hope: Your hands-- your hands are not clean.
Deimos: There's no way for you to prove anything. So to save you a lot of wasted time and effort, you need to know... there's absolutely nothing you can do. (Vo) if you have type 2 diabetes,
Abigail: What kind of help do you reall-- what kind of help do you think I need exactly? I mean, I-I'm tired and, like you said, once I get some sleep I'll be fine.
Chad: Would you guys--
Abigail: I'll be fine once I get some sleep.
Chad: Would you guys just give us a few minutes?
Abigail: Stop looking at me like that.
Chad: Like what?
Abigail: Like that! Like you think that there's something seriously wrong with me. Like you think that I'm-- like you think I'm crazy.
Chad: Abby... after everything that you've been through... there's no shame in admitting that you need help. Need more help than I'm able to give you.
Abigail: I don't.
Chad: Do you want to keep going on this way?
Abigail: [Crying] You think I'm a bad mother. That's why--
Abigail: Yes, you do.
Chad: No, absolutely--
Abigail: Yes, you do! You think I'm a bad mom and that's why you want to take him away from me and you want to lock me up. That's how you're trying-- trying to "help" me.
Chad: We agreed you need therapy.
Abigail: Yeah, and after one session with Marlena you're already deciding that it's not gonna work?
Chad: Marlena and I were just discussing possibilities. You weren't sup-- you weren't supposed to hear that and I'm sorry that you did. Abby, she cares about you and so do I. And after everything that happened today, do you really think that we can-- that we can do this on our own?
Abigail: So you do want to lock me up. You do. Why do you think that I ran? I know what you're doing. You're just punishing me for what I did upstairs.
Chad: No, I'm not.
Abigail: You are. And let me tell you something, anyone in their right mind would've done exactly what I did. Anyone in their right mind would want Ben dead. And you know what? And you know what? I'm not sorry that I lit him on fire. I'm just sorry that he didn't die.
Chad: No, I don't believe that. I don't believe that. Abby, our son was in the same house that you lit on fire! What if something would've happened to him? I know you would never deliberately hurt our child--
Abigail: No, of course I wouldn't.
Chad: Okay, then look me in the eyes and tell me you don't have any regrets. Hey. Look at me. 'Cause I think you feel horribly guilt. And you're punishing yourself for what you did and watching you do that is breaking my heart.
Jennifer: I'm just so glad that you and Chad found her, but I can't understand why she ran away.
JJ: She overheard Chad and Marlena talking about possibly having her committed if she gets any worse.
Jennifer: You don't think that's what she needs?
JJ: After the way she was today I-- I don't know, mom.
Jennifer: I just feel like I should've been there for her. I feel like I should've come over here and helped her with the baby and then she could've gotten some rest. And I just didn't know that it was this bad. And I have been so busy lately. Just-- you think I let her down too?
JJ: I think Abigail is not the only one in the family that has a problem.
Hope: Why? [Screams] Why did you do it?
Deimos: For the money. It was nothing personal. I was paid to obtain the formula for the serum that cured Caroline Brady. My employer believed that Bo had access to that information.
Hope: I can't believe that I'm standing here listening to this.
Deimos: Do you want me to continue?
Hope: No! Y-yes! Go on. Tell me.
Deimos: We greatly underestimated his will. No matter what tactics we used, he gave us absolutely nothing.
Deimos: He could've come home to you so much sooner if only--
Hope: You son of a bitch! How do you know I'm not wearing a wire right now? How do you know that?
Deimos: You didn't think I was just going to tell you the truth simply because you asked nicely, did you? You were completely unprepared for what you just heard. But you got what you came for, did you not?
Hope: No. No, I didn't. I didn't get what I came for.
Deimos: There's no proof for you to find, detective. So what are you gonna do?
Nicole: Uh... I'm sorry, am I interrupting something? These pants always smelled like yoga-aroma.
Brady: My head--my head--I'm just--my head's spinning.
Theresa: Are--you're dizzy?
Brady: No, no, not literally. I'm just upside down. I'm worried about everybody. I'm worried about my grandfather, I'm worried about Maggie, I'm worried about Nicole now, for God's sake.
Theresa: Hey, I think you got through to her.
Brady: I don't know why my grandfather would go to her. I don't understand why she would agree to do this. I don't--I don't get any of it. This is not her fight. It's mine.
Theresa: I don't like the sound of that. Brady, please promise me that you're going to leave Deimos alone.
Brady: Okay, listen, look... I'm not afraid of him.
Theresa: Well, I am.
Brady: It's okay.
Theresa: Brady... look, I know you never thought that these words would come out of my mouth, but...like you said, it's just money, okay?
Theresa: It's not worth putting yourself in danger.
Brady: No, no, it's not about the money, Theresa. It's not like grandfather's destitute. Maggie has chez rouge. It's not about the money. It's about his spirit. He might not be able to recover from something like this.
Theresa: Yeah, I understand that, but I don't--I don't know what you think you can do.
Brady: I would've been out on the streets a long time ago, Theresa, or even worse, if it wasn't for granddad and Maggie. I owe them... I owe them everything. Now it's my turn to pay them back.
Deimos: No, you're not interrupting anything. Detective Brady was just leaving.
Hope: What business do you have with Deimos?
Nicole: None of yours.
Hope: I'll be back.
Nicole: Well, you really have a way with women, don't you?
Deimos: Yeah. I tend to elicit a very strong reaction from people.
Nicole: Did you and Kate kiss and make up?
Deimos: Why do you ask?
Nicole: My dinner plans fell through, and I happened to be passing by. If you're not busy, I was wondering if your offer still stands.
Deimos: Of course. I would love to entertain you. But if we're gonna break bread together, why don't we not start off with a lie?
Jennifer: I don't know what you're talking about.
JJ: Mom, I'm worried about you.
Jennifer: Don't be.
JJ: I-I'm not judging. It's not like I haven't-- we both need to be there for Abigail right now, and, if you need help-- I--
Jennifer: Did I ask you for help?
JJ: No, you didn't--
Jennifer: Then don't presume that I need help.
Jennifer: No, I mean it. Really, the last thing I need is my son hovering over me like I am some pathetic woman who can't take care of herself.
JJ: I'm not doing that. I think you're an incredibly strong woman, but... if--if--I'm worried about you.
Jennifer: Don't worry about me! If I needed help, I would ask for it. So please, stop--stop looking at me like that. I am fine and I am together and I am going to be there for my daughter.
Abigail: Chad, I never thought I'd be capable of doing something like that. Um, I never... never thought I could do something like that, but I just wanted him to go away. I just, I-I wanted Ben to be gone so badly...
Chad: I know.
Abigail: That... I know I should have called the police. I know, I just... I didn't trust them.
Chad: I understand.
Abigail: You know, I keep telling myself that I... that I did what I did for Thomas, but the truth is, I know I put him in danger. I...could have killed him. [Sighs] You're right. But I just wanted Ben to go away; I just wanted to make him suffer. Ben is a psychopath. But I'm--
Chad: Listen... Ben was a threat to all of us. And with all of the stress that you've been under and... you are an amazing person. And an amazing mother. And you were just pushed to the edge and...
Abigail: I just... I snapped.
Chad: Ben's gone now. Okay, we can get past this.
Chad: We will. But you can't tell anyone else what happened.
Abigail: Well, I told Marlena.
Chad: And she'll keep it quiet. So will JJ. But I can't protect you if anyone else knows. I can't lose you, Abby. You and Thomas are everything to me. You're my whole life. You're gonna get better. You will. That's what you want, yeah? Whatever it takes.
Abigail: Whatever it takes.
Abigail: I would never hurt him. Not on purpose. But I am.
Chad: What do you mean?
Abigail: Every time I try to hold him, I can't comfort him, because he feels how freaked out I am, and... you know why he can't stop crying. On some level, he knows that his mom's not okay. I... I was so afraid that you would take Thomas away from me... that I walked away from you, and I walked away from my family... I walked away from Thomas. Something I never thought I would do. [Sighs] So I'll go.
Chad: You will?
Abigail: Yeah, I will. [Sniffles] I have to, because... I know that, even though I don't want to be away from my sweet little boy for even a minute, I know that I need to get better, and...I will.
Chad: You will.
Chad: Do you wanna hold him?
Chad: Before you go?
Abigail: [Crying] I do, but... he's so peaceful right now. He needs that. He needs his rest. So I'll go and I'll get... I'll get better and then... and then I'll come back to my son and I'll hold him and I'll never let him go.
Chad: Okay. I'll get the keys. You ready?
Abigail: Yeah. Mommy...
Jennifer: It's okay. Baby, it's gonna be--it's gonna be so good. [Sniffling] It's gonna be okay.
Jennifer: It's gonna be okay.
It's gonna be okay.
Brady: Ever since Daniel died, life is getting weirder. [Sighs] Theresa, if you would've told me that I would be following my heart to California and running off and finding Maggie's long-lost daughter, I...
Theresa: Yeah, I know.
Brady: Would've told you you were... now my grandfather is--is broke, I have a great-uncle that I never even knew existed...
Theresa: Well, you're engaged to me.
Brady: Yes, I am engaged to you. And you and that little boy in there, you're the ones I'm holding onto. You're the--
Brady: You're the part of my life that feels...right, normal, and good.
Theresa: And we have DJ wear.
Brady: Work is fine. I just feel like there's something else that I should be doing.
Theresa: Okay...like what?
Brady: Baby, I wish I knew.
Theresa: Well, you know what? Whatever you decide, we'll make it happen, okay? Together. Come here.
Nicole: What are you lying about?
Deimos: I wasn't talking about me. You.
Nicole: Beg your pardon?
Deimos: Tell me you don't have an ulterior motive for being here.
Nicole: You wanted me to hear your side of the story.
Deimos: Mm-hmm. But why do you care?
Nicole: Why do you think? You're doing it again.
Deimos: What am I doing?
Nicole: Looking at me... like the woman you loved and lost. I have to admit, it's... a little uncomfortable. But it's also fascinating. The truth is, Deimos, I came here...because I want to hear more about Helena.
