Fynn: He's dying to go home. Says he feels great.
Kayla: Well, who wouldn't feel great on that much painkiller?
Fynn: Well, let's cut it back a bit and see if he changes his mind.
Kayla: It's your call.
Steve: Okay, Kayla, this has gone too far.
Kayla: What are you talking about?
Steve: You don't know what I'm talking about? You couldn't bother to tell me that our son was arrested?
Jade: So we have food for the next couple days, every dime in both of our savings accounts. So we're good to go, right?
Joey: Guess so.
Jade: Can you believe it? By this time next week we're gonna be in la.
Joey: We hope.
Jade: [Chuckles] Come on, Joey. It's gonna be great.
Rafe: Hey. Want to grab lunch at the square?
Hope: Um, yeah, actually, I think that might be pretty great right now.
Hope: Let me just call Ciara first though, okay?
Rafe: Yeah. How is she?
Hope: What, you mean after spending prom night in jail for vandalizing a judge's car?
Rafe: Yeah, that.
Hope: I feel like she's careening from one mess to another.
Ciara: Where's the baby?
Ciara: There he is! There he is!
Ciara: I know you miss your mommy. I bet it's killing her that she's not here with you right now. But when you're my age, moms can get really annoying. I know the hospital's gonna make your mom better, and she'll be back soon. At least I hope so.
Chad: Hi, this is Chad DiMera. I'm calling to see how my wife is doing this morning. Abigail DiMera.
We're in the process of evaluating her right now.
Chad: And how long will that take?
Mr. DiMera, your wife was severely traumatized and she's dealing with a number of issues. Dr. Robinson and I both told you this was going to take time.
Chad: Okay, well, what are we--what are we talking about? Like, months or a year?
I can't put a time frame on it yet. We'll do everything we can for Abigail, but ultimately it's up to her.
Robinson: I'd like to talk to you about when you first met Ben. Your feelings about him in the beginning.
Abigail: I don't remember. Is that door locked?
Abigail: I'd like you to lock it, please. I want that door locked.
Robinson: We have security.
Abigail: Well, he can get past security.
Robinson: I was talking to you about how you felt when you met Ben, but is that too hard to talk about?
Abigail: No, it isn't too hard for me to talk about. I just don't want to talk about it because I don't remember because every time I think about it, I just have a black space, okay?
Robinson: So you don't remember anything about the--
Abigail: I told you. I don't remember.
Robinson: You're gonna have to make an effort, Abigail. It's very important for your recovery to try.
Rafe: Reminds me of something my mom said to me. See, when I was about eight years old, I had this larcenous period. Kept stealing candy bars from Mr. Falco's store.
Hope: Why, detective Hernandez, I have to say I am very shocked.
Rafe: Yeah, well, it took him a long time to catch me, but he finally did. You know what he did? Called my mom.
Hope: What did she do?
Rafe: Nothing. She decided the best form of punishment would be to let Mr. Falco decide the punishment. So for six months, I worked in the storeroom every Saturday. There was no hockey and no baseball. All I did was carry these heavy boxes up from the basement. So when I saw my mom I said, "mom, why didn't you have my back?" And she said, "well, you know, if you're old enough to get yourself into that situation, then you are old enough to get yourself out. And if that's the kind of life that you want to lead, so be it." Maybe it's time that you did that with Ciara.
Ciara: "'I' is for 'ice,' where white bears are caught. 'J' is for 'jackal," which the zoo just bought. 'K' is for 'kangaroo,' just hopping around. And 'l' stands for 'lion,' loud, roaring and strong." Yeah, rawr!
Chad: You're good with him.
Ciara: Oh, hey. Yeah, I love hanging out with this kid.
Chad: Hey. I'm, uh--I'm glad he has you.
Ciara: Yeah. Abigail's gonna get through this, and the three of you will be together.
Chad: I hope so. By the way, I wasn't kidding around. I'm not gonna keep you around here if you don't finish school. I don't care how good you are with Thomas.
Chad: Okay, what? Okay, I'll stay in school.
Chad: That a girl.
Fynn: I think you need to dial it down, man.
Steve: Don't you have patients to tend to?
Fynn: I was just in the middle of doing that with Dr. Brady when you came storming in. So why don't you chill out and back the hell off?
Kayla: Um, Fynn, why don't you give Steve and me a moment? I'm fine, I promise.
Steve: I think you need to keep a shorter leash on the dingo.
Steve: What's his deal anyway?
Kayla: He's gone. Why don't you and I go try to work it out? Come on.
Hope: Yeah, I got you. Your mom let you deal-- thank you--with the consequences on your own with Mr. Falco. And that probably taught you more than any lecture she could have given you.
Rafe: That's right.
Hope: But you know what? I'm just--I'm not sure that's the kind of tough love Ciara needs right now.
Rafe: Or maybe it is. To me, it's giving Ciara room to find her own way.
Hope: Hey, we better order.
Doug: It's an ancient form of percussive dance.
Julie: How can you call it dance when you're not allowed to move your arms?
Doug: Hey, sweetheart.
Hope: Oh. Oh, daddy, Julie, hi. Nice surprise.
Doug: Yeah. Good to see you, Rafe.
Rafe: It's great to see you too.
Hope: Hey, I heard you had a full house at the b&B.
Julie: Oh, we do. Somebody rented the entire place to a troupe of Irish step dancers.
Doug: They're here for a tournament.
Julie: And they've taken over the breakfast room to rehearse. Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da. Over and over and over and over and over and over.
Rafe: Lucky you.
Rafe: Here, why don't you join us?
Julie: Oh, thank you.
Doug: Good. Great.
Rafe: Excuse me.
Julie: Thanks, sweetheart.
Rafe: Okay, on my way. Well, good news. They caught the carjacker. I'll take care of it. Enjoy your lunch.
Hope: I'll bring you a sandwich back, okay?
Julie: So how are things going with Ciara?
Hope: I wish I could say better.
Doug: But it's not?
Hope: I feel like I keep failing her, daddy. And I just feel sick inside, and I have no idea what to do differently.
Ciara: Yeah, dropping out of school is like--
Chad: Shooting yourself in the foot.
Ciara: Yeah. But something has to change. I'm not the same girl anymore, and aside from what happened, my dad's dead. I can't be the Ciara that everyone knew me as. It's just not gonna happen.
Chad: What are you talking-- you're doing things differently. You went out and you got yourself a job, taking care of Thomas. That's a lot of responsibility, and you're good at it.
Chad: Listen, you'll figure things out, all right? It might take some time, but I got confidence in you.
Ciara: At least someone does. So, uh, I'm gonna take Thomas out, probably to the square or something? Wanna come?
Chad: I, uh--I wish I could. I gotta do some work. Now that you're covering for Thomas, I might--I might go visit Abby for a bit, so...
Ciara: Say, "bye, daddy."
Chad: Bye, sweetie. Don't forget the sunblock.
Ciara: Yes, it's there.
Robinson: How did it feel when you realized you were in the house alone with Ben?
Abigail: [Sighs] It felt the same. Felt like it always does. Nobody heard me. Nobody heard me and nobody saw me. Except for Thomas. Thomas saw me when I saw him. He saw that Ben was there. Thomas knew. You see, I tricked him. I tricked Ben. I was smarter than him that time. I made him think that I wanted him. That's how I got him up to the bedroom. And once he was in the bedroom, I put him on the bed, and then I tied him to the bed, and I poured kerosene all over him. And then I lit him on fire, and I did exactly what he did to Chad and me.
Robinson: Had you been fantasizing about doing something like that to him? How did it make you feel when you actually--
Abigail: Then the police came and they took Ben, and they said that he was gone and that he was away, but I know that he's not. That's not true. I know that he's out there, and he's waiting for me. I know he's waiting for me. He's just waiting.
Robinson: Abigail, you were terrorized, and it went on for a long time, but Ben is in prison, and he can't come after you.
Abigail: Ugh! That is exactly what they said before. See, that's what they said before.
Robinson: Abigail, we're gonna help you learn how to deal with your memories of what Ben Weston did to you. To help you stop feeling threatened and move on.
Abigail: Move on to what?
Hope: There were absolutely other ways of dealing with this situation with mark McNair. I mean, why did Ciara have to be so destructive? Why do that?
Doug: Because she's a teenager, sweetheart. Just like you were.
Hope: I have a new respect for you. You too.
Julie: Oh, thanks.
Doug: Well, I don't think I handled your adolescent rebellion so brilliantly, especially where it came to Bo. I was always too--eh, eh. What do they call it today?
Julie: Oh, today? Today they call it "helicopter parenting."
Hope: Oh, I remember.
Doug: Yeah, that. But you turned out okay. Hmm? I mean, kids these days, with the internet and Facebook and twitter, they're just exposed to so much--so much more than you ever were. Why...I'm glad I'm not raising a daughter with this around.
Hope: You know, Rafe thinks that I should back off. Let Ciara learn from her own mistakes.
Doug: Uh, I think it's good to set limits to behavior. I mean, they have to learn somewhere, otherwise they end up like the McNair kid.
Hope: Ciara and I had an awful argument about it.
Doug: Yeah, so you'll be unpopular with her for a while, but she'll come to say thank you one day.
Julie: I was the Ciara of my generation. Grandpa Horton came down on me like a ton of bricks, and for all my sass and for all my sulking, I knew he was doing it because he loved me. And he turned my life around. And I'll always be grateful.
[Gentle piano music]
Ciara: Hey. I was about to text you.
Claire: Hi. Oh, he's so cute. What's going on?
Ciara: I had what I think is an awesome idea.
Claire: Great. What is it?
Ciara: What if you and I got our own place?
Claire: [Chuckles] I mean, that's a really awesome idea. Um, I just don't know if the parents will see it the same way.
Ciara: Yeah, but we're 18. We can do what we want.
Claire: How would we pay for this place?
Ciara: Well, you're getting a lot of views on YouTube, right? You're gonna get a recording contract.
Claire: Yeah, I hope.
Ciara: And as soon as school's out, I'm gonna work for Chad full-time if I can.
Claire: So you think we can pay for an apartment with YouTube hits and babysitting money?
Ciara: Come on. I mean, I just--I need to get away from my mom, all right? She is literally driving me insane.
Claire: Yeah, I know. Mine too, especially after last night.
Ciara: Yeah, well, I hope someone will rent to us. We don't know what the judge is gonna say.
Claire: You know, we'll just tell him that we're sorry and we made a stupid mistake.
Joey: Except we're not sorry, and we knew exactly what we were doing.
Jade: After what that mark McNair did to you and Theo, I'm glad we did it.
Jade: Oh, who's the kid?
Ciara: Oh, that's Thomas. I babysit him. So I heard your parents bailed you out. Are they, like, totally pissed?
Jade: Yeah, they pretty much hate me now. The feeling is mutual.
Claire: How'd your mom and dad take it?
Joey: My mom's freaking out of course, but as far as I know she didn't tell my dad about it.
Steve: So Joe spent a night in jail for spray-painting some guy's car?
Kayla: A judge's car!
Steve: You said the judge's kid went after Joe's friends.
Kayla: Defacing other people's property is against the law, Steve.
Steve: Yeah, well, you should have told me about this. I had a right to know.
Kayla: Where are you going?
Steve: I'm gonna have a talk with this judge about teaching his punk kid some manners.
Kayla: And you wonder why I don't tell you these things.
Steve: So I can't look out for my own kid now?
Kayla: This isn't looking out for him.
Steve: All right. If you want to turn your back on me, if you don't love me anymore, okay, fine. But don't you accuse me of not loving my son or not trying to be a good father.
Kayla: I know you love him, but loving him and doing what's right for him are two different things.
Steve: And what's right is for me to stay away? I can't believe it's come to this.
Ciara: You really think that your mom wouldn't tell your dad that we were all in jail?
Joey: I mean, if she did, he hasn't bothered to talk to me about it.
Claire: Separated parents are the worst.
Joey: Hey, mine can do whatever they want. Jade and I are taking off.
Ciara: You're really gonna go through with that?
Joey: What's keeping me here?
Jade: Especially now that that whole Ava thing is history.
Ciara: What do you mean, the Ava thing?
Jade: Well, you know how-- how she died.
Ciara: Yeah, I know that uncle Steve was accused of killing her, but he got off.
Joey: Yeah, that's right. And what jade meant was--
Ciara: Did you have something to do with her dying? Is that why you're leaving?
Joey: No! Okay, Ava just--she made our lives hell for a while. And my parents are splitting up. I just--I just, I can't take it here anymore.
Ciara: It's okay.
Claire: Come on. You guys keep in touch, okay? Good luck.
Jade: See ya.
Claire: Wow, he's really going.
Ciara: Yeah. He looked kinda scared. But at least he has the guts to take off.
Hope: Hi, I'm so sorry to bother you. I was looking for Ciara, but Harold told me she took the baby to the park.
Chad: Right, yeah. Wait, wait, is everything okay?
Hope: Yeah, I just--um-- how's Abigail doing?
Chad: Um...they're evaluating her, but she's getting the help she needs.
Hope: My God, this never should have happened to her. She's such a special girl.
Chad: Thank you. Yeah, she is, and so is Ciara.
Hope: Thank you. She loves taking care of Thomas. To be honest, I was afraid she was gonna lose her job.
Hope: Did you hear what happened last night?
Chad: Yeah, a lot of kids get in trouble in school. I did.
Hope: She confided in you?
Hope: Wow, I, um-- I didn't know that. We haven't exactly been seeing eye-to-eye.
Chad: I'm sorry.
Hope: Chad, I have to ask. Has she confided in you about anything else?
Joey: Hey. I can't believe you shot off your mouth like that.
Jade: I assumed they knew.
Joey: About me killing Ava. Are you kidding me?
Jade: I'm sorry, but it-- it's not like they can prove anything.
Joey: That's not the point. When I told you that, I said it was supposed to stay between you and me.
Jade: I won't do it again.
Joey: Yeah, you better not.
Jade: I said I won't. Besides, it's not like anyone in la really cares about what happens in this town. So when do we leave?
Joey: Soon. After I take care of a few things.
Jade: What things?
Joey: Her for one.
Jade: I didn't know she was here.
Joey: She didn't see us or she'd be all over us.
Jade: Text me when you're ready to hit the road.
Kayla: Joey. Glad to see you. You look upset. Is everything okay?
Houston: Mission allergy escape.
Kayla: Um, I just finished a tough case at the hospital, and I was taking a break. What's up?
Joey: I--I just figured you were thinking about last night. I'm really sorry I put you through that.
Kayla: You can't deface people's property, Joey. We'll get through it. Not the end of the world.
Joey: You've always been so good to me. You're always there. I'll never forget that. I love you, mom.
Kayla: I love you. I love you, baby.
Joey: Um, I'm gonna head home.
Kayla: Okay. See you later then.
Joey: See you.
Robinson: I understand why you may still feel threatened. He escaped once. But, Abigail, prison is different than a mental hospital.
Abigail: Not to him. I still see him.
Abigail: You know, people say that he's in prison and that he's locked up and he can't get out, but they're wrong. I know. I know they're wrong. Sometimes I see him. Like I look through a window and I see him right there, standing there and staring right at me. Do you have a lot of windows here?
Robinson: Abigail, he's not there. He's in your mind.
Abigail: No, he's not. He's not in my mind. I used to think that too, but then he was in my house, and I--I did what I always do. I closed my eyes, and he was gone for a minute. And then I opened them, and he was there. He was right there and he was real. I know he was real.
Robinson: You're safe now.
Abigail: [Chuckles] He can still get in here. He already did.
Abigail: Last night. He was here last night. They gave me a pill to help me fall asleep, and I woke up and Ben was right there beside my bed, and he was staring at me. Right there. He said this used to be his hospital.
Robinson: No, that's not true.
Abigail: He was in the uniform that they wear here, and I screamed and I screamed. I kept screaming, and nobody heard me. Nobody ever hears me.
Robinson: I hear you, Abigail.
Ben: And now... I know you don't love me back.
Abigail: He took the necktie out of his pocket. And I couldn't breathe. He was--and he had the-- and I couldn't breathe because he was-- he had it on me and he was-- he was trying to kill me. He did, he had it on my neck. He was trying to kill me.
Abigail: He said I was his last victim, and he had it on my neck, and he was trying to kill me--he was.
Abigail: He was--he was trying to kill me.
Robinson: Abigail, no, he can't kill you.
Abigail: He was trying--
Robinson: I'd like to start Abigail on perphenazine. Four milligrams, three times a day.
I'll get it right away.
Robinson: Abigail, I want to help you. Together we can work through this. Abigail.
Chad: No, Ciara doesn't tell me anything about her personal life. And even if she did, I don't think I could betray her confidence. Not even to you, detective.
Hope: Fair enough. I understand. I'm just at my wit's end right now.
Hope: Hi, honey.
Ciara: Hey, mom. What are you doing here?
Chad: How's Thomas?
Ciara: I just put him down for his nap. Did you call her?
Chad: No. Why would I do that?
Hope: Honey, I came-- excuse me, Chad.
Chad: Oh, you got it.
Hope: I came here on my own. I wanted to tell you how sorry I am about our argument. I thought maybe we could talk.
Ciara: Mom, I'm sick of talking. I just--I need my space.
Hope: What does that mean?
Ciara: It means that I'm either getting my own place or with Claire because I can't live with you anymore.
Which one's yours?
Hope: I don't think this is the best time for you to be on your own, Ciara.
Ciara: Well, I do, and I'm 18, so you can't stop me.
Chad: Can I--sorry. Can I just interfere for one second? I, uh--I have an idea. Look, she wants to move out and find a place of her own, and I could really use some full-time help, especially over the summer with everything going on with Abby. Now, we have a guest house on the property. It's safe, and I would be happy to let Ciara live there rent-free.
Ciara: Are you kidding me?
Hope: Ciara, I don't think-- but if Ciara wants to try, I suppose I could try to be okay with it.
Ciara: Can Claire share with me?
Hope: That's up to Shawn and belle.
Ciara: Right. Well, I'll go call her. Thank you so much.
Chad: Mm-hmm. You don't like that idea?
Hope: No, I'm-- I'm not thrilled. I don't want Ciara moving out. But at least I know she'll be safe here.
Chad: Yes, on DiMera property.
Hope: You're not your father, Chad. By any means. Otherwise a girl like Abigail never would have fallen in love with you.
Fynn: Hey. How'd it go with your ex-husband?
Kayla: About as bad as it possibly could.
[Knock at door]
Steve: It's good to see you.
Joey: All I seem to be doing is screwing up these days. You must be getting sick of me.
Steve: Never in a million years. I know what a lousy thing you're dealing with right now.
Joey: You mean killing Ava? You can't even say it. And I can't stop seeing it in my head. Some guy who-- who is me and isn't me... he's pushing down the pillow. And Ava's fighting back. And then she just stops.
Steve: You've got to let me help you carry this burden.
Joey: Why? You didn't do it.
Steve: It's because of me that she was here. Joe, listen to me. You gotta get some help.
Joey: Help. Like a therapist?
Steve: Yes. Why not?
Joey: What I should have done is tell the truth. Even if they sent me to prison, it would have been better than the way I am now.
Steve: No, it wouldn't. No.
Joey: At least I would have been taking my punishment like a man.
Steve: But you're not a man yet.
Steve: You're still a kid. So the people who love you huddled around you, and that was the right thing to do.
Joey: The only thing I know to do is keep moving. That's the only way I can think of to stay sane.
Steve: Keep moving? What does that mean? What is it you're not telling me? Max and I just discovered
Kayla: Well, I really think this has been one of my worst days ever. I, um--well, you heard Steve. Our son was arrested last night. And then Steve and I got in a big fight over the fact that I didn't call and tell him.
Fynn: Well, you can tell me about it over dinner.
Kayla: Uh, could we do dinner a different night? I don't think I'd be very good company.
Fynn: Yeah, I understand. But still, I wouldn't mind having a go at cheering you up.
Kayla: Some other night, okay?
Fynn: Of course. [Sighs]
Joey: I don't even know what I meant by that.
Steve: You sure?
Joey: I just came to tell you I'm sorry.
Steve: Well, it really seems like there's something else on your mind.
Joey: No, I just have a headache. Do you have any aspirin?
Here you go.
Steve: You know, I talked to your mom. She's a little worried about you and jade.
Joey: Yeah, I'm starting to think that's not going anywhere.
Steve: Really? Well, just be careful, okay?
Joey: I will. Hey, uh... what I said before, it doesn't mean I don't know what you did for me.
Steve: I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Joey: I love you, dad.
Steve: I love you too, son.
Hope: Sorry it took me so long. Thanks for covering for me.
Rafe: No problem. Did you see Ciara?
Hope: Yeah, yeah, I did.
Rafe: Well, how'd it go?
Hope: Well, you know, I head you loud and clear earlier and what you said, and I--I think that you're right. The best way not to lose Ciara is to take a step back. So that's what I'm gonna try to do.
Ciara: What are you doing here? Your dad's gonna kill you.
Theo: No, no, he's just gonna be mad. But, I mean, I don't care. He can't stop me from wanting to be with you. Ciara, you--you just-- you mean too much to me.
Ciara: Oh, Theo.
Theo: I love you. I do. I think I always have.
Jade: You did it. You got the bike.
Joey: You ready to hit the road?
Jade: La, here we come.
Robinson: If Abigail seems a little vague to you, I decided to put her on an anti-psychotic medication.
Chad: Anti-psychotic, what--
Robinson: Well, she was seeing Ben, and he's not there. I'm hoping that this medication will stop that from happening. Look who's here, Abigail.
Chad: Hi. Hey, honey.
[Gentle piano music]
Abigail: Hi. Oh, God, don't look at me like this. I look awful.
Chad: Are you kidding me? Look at you. You look beautiful. I love you.
Abigail: I love you too.
Chad: Come here. So the, um... the doctor said that they put you on some medication that's gonna make you feel better. Hopefully you'll be able to come home soon.
Abigail: What if he doesn't let me come home?
Chad: Who? Who's not gonna let you come home?
Abigail: Ben. What if Ben doesn't let me come home?
