Nicole: Champagne? At this hour?
Deimos: It's never too early for champagne. Not when you have something to celebrate.
Chloe: Hey, I'm sorry. I know, I'm late.
Philip: No problem. We just have a lot to cover, so... you okay?
Chloe: No, I feel kinda lousy.
Philip: Walk didn't help?
Chloe: No. I don't know. Maybe it's this place. I don't know, I can't think straight for some reason.
Philip: Sorry. Until I can rent an office, this is it.
Chloe: Uh, isn't there somewhere more private we can go?
Philip: Uh... not unless you want to go back to my place. Or yours.
Belle: I was told to come right up.
Chad: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. We got to, um, we gotta get started.
Belle: On what? What is going on?
Chad: Well, my wife is missing. And her mother's decided to come in for the, um... the kill.
Belle: Jennifer horton?
Chad: Yeah, yeah. She wants thomas, so she's suing me for custody. I'd like your help, please.
Belle: Uh, well, you're gonna have to help yourself first, or she's gonna have a strong case.
Chad: I don't know what that means. Will you represent me?
Hope: Daddy, I promise you I--I'm fine. Yeah, I just, um, need some rest. Okay. I'll see you and julie later, okay? Okay, I love you.
Jennifer: All right.
Jennifer: Easy, easy.
Jennifer: Got it?
Hope: Oh, yes.
Jennifer: All right. All right, can I get you something, some tea?
Hope: Mm-mm, no, thanks.
Jennifer: Some soup? Anything?
Hope: No, I'm fine. Like I told my dad at the hospital, I'm okay. But you're not. I could tell on the drive home. What's wrong?
Jennifer: Nothing exactly. There's something I want to discuss with you, but not right now.
Hope: Why not?
Jennifer: No, I just-- I want to wait till you get a little stronger.
Hope: Cuz, I'm stronger. Please, I'm desperate to talk about anything other than what happened to me, okay?
Jennifer: I'm suing for custody of thomas.
Jennifer: And I want to hire aiden jennings to do it.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Ciara: Oh, hey.
Claire: Human in front of you.
Ciara: Sorry, it's your dad. My mom's getting out of the hospital.
Claire: Oh, that's great.
Claire: Thank God she's doing so well.
Ciara: Are you, uh, running away?
Claire: Uh, no. Oh, philip's gonna launch chloe on his label, so there's a meeting.
Ciara: And you're going?
Claire: Well, I am chloe's personal assistant.
Ciara: Oh, that explains why you look like a sherpa.
Claire: Yeah. [Chuckles] I mean, I know it's grunt work, but this is how everyone starts, so... this is so I can play them my tracks.
Ciara: They asked to listen to your music?
Claire: Well, I just mean, like, in cyou know, I know they're gonna go for these songs eventually. Like, I could have written these for chloe. They're perfect for her. You know, and I know it takes time, but it's a foot in the door, so...
Ciara: Yeah, that's awesome. Good for you.
Claire: Thanks. Later?
Ciara: Yeah, text me how it goes.
Belle: You need to clean yourself up. You know, take a shower, change your clothes, and get to know your razor again.
Chad: Is that the priority?
Belle: No, that's the second thing. The first thing is to lose the booze. Listen, I know you're out of your mind with worry, and you're left trying to figure out how to take care of a baby all by yourself.
Chad: Yeah, and I've taken good care of him.
Belle: Yeah, well, prove it. And look the part. That's what the judge is gonna want to see. Listen, this is family court. Their only priority is the well-being of the child.
Chase: I have never endangered thomas.
Belle: Really? Like by having a drink or, I don't know, three while you're home alone with him? Or hiring a teenager with zero experience to nanny for him?
Chad: Well, is he better off with jennifer?
Belle: She's a mother who's raised two children.
Chad: Who was addicted to painkillers.
Belle: Was. And now she's in recovery going to meetings. Unless you have some kind of evidence that she's fallen off the wagon since abigail disappeared.
Belle: Then for now, she looks like the stable one.
Chad: So... I'm screwed.
Belle: No, not necessarily. You are the father, you have precedence. But you're gonna have to prove that you're a good father.
Chad: Okay. I'll do whatever it takes. I'll do what you say.
Belle: Then you have a lawyer.
Hope: I'm sorry, I could not have possibly have heard you correctly.
Jennifer: No, you did. I want to hire aiden to represent me.
Hope: Why? Why him?
Jennifer: Because I want to get custody of a baby from his father. I want to take a dimera to court, hope.
Hope: Honestly, I-I ca-- I can't digest this. You--you want to hire someone who was going to kill me? Someone who is in debt to the dimeras? Someone I can guarantee you cannot trust.
Jennifer: No, I know it's crazy and I--and I hate what he did to you. But I have to be ruthless here. Thomas is not safe with chad right now.
Hope: Why are you saying that?
Jennifer: Because he's-- he's--he's completely lost it. He's so devastated over abigail disappearing that he's-- he's drinking, he--he's-- he's worse than I ever feared right now.
Hope: Are you sure?
Hope: Are you worried--
Jennifer: You think I'm making this up?
Hope: Well, are you worried about thomas or are you trying to punish chad because abigail ran away?
Jennifer: Is it wrong if I think both?
Hope: You're not gonna get what you want. Not with aiden as your attorney. Hey there, hi.
Deimos: Don't you want to know what we're celebrating?
Nicole: We aren'T... celebrating.
Deimos: Everything changed yesterday.
Nicole: I thought everything changed when you went in the river.
Deimos: Again. It changed again. I made a deal with Victor.
Nicole: What kind of deal?
Deimos: I promised to give my brother back Titan industries.
Nicole: Oh. And what did you get?
Deimos: What do you mean?
Nicole: What's in this for you?
Deimos: Hmm. Peace. My brother and I, we no longer have to live in anger. No more vengeance.
Nicole: No, no. What did you get?
Deimos: I get this house, a bit of money. That's all I wanted from him.
Nicole: But not all you want. In general.
Deimos: Of course not.
Nicole: So this show is for me?
Deimos: And what makes you think this is a show?
Nicole: Well, I'm looking at the setup.
Deimos: Okay. Yes, this is for you. But what I did with my brother was for Victor and me. Yet you still doubt.
Chloe: I would love to go back to my room. Alone and lie down.
Philip: You're really sick.
Chloe: Yeah, I don't know. Must be some kind of bug or something, but I'm sorry. I just feel like I'm gonna be worthless today. Can we please do this tomorrow?
Claire: Hi, hi, sorry. I meant to get set up earlier, but I didn't know how you like to work.
Chloe: No, relax, it's fine. It's not happening today.
Claire: Oh, did I miss the meeting?
Philip: Chloe's not feeling well. She's gonna go back to lie down.
Claire: Okay, no problem. Do you--do you want tea or soup? Is it your stomach? Or maybe some ginger ale?
Chloe: No, it's okay. I just want to go back to my room.
Chloe: I mean, if you want to walk with me, we can talk about what I need you to do for me and what, you know--
Claire: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I want to get set up the way you want, if that's okay.
Philip: If that's what chloe wants. She's your boss.
Chloe: Okay, I'll call you later.
Claire: Okay, so I have three different calendar programs, so we can pick out the one you like the best.
Hope: [Grunts] Cuz, please. I'll give you the names of some really great attorneys who are custody experts.
Jennifer: Right. Jeannine wiest? Rick myers?
Hope: Yeah, exactly. You know them?
Jennifer: Yeah, I know them. I met with them. I checked their track records. I even read some transcripts from their court appearances, hope.
Hope: Okay then, you know--
Jennifer: I didn't come by this decision lightly. And I wouldn't even be thinking about this if they were ruthless enough.
Hope: Ruthless isn't always the best thing in family court.
Jennifer: I'm not talking about shouting. I'm just talking about not backing down. Their clients lost. Hope, I can't lose.
Hope: I don't know what you want me to say.
Jennifer: I want you to tell me that you understand and that we'll be okay.
Hope: I can't-- I can't do that.
Jennifer: Right, because of what he did to you and lied about it. And because he was so determined, hope.
Hope: That's one word for it.
Jennifer: Yeah. And that is exactly what I need.
[Knocking] I'll get it. Stay right there.
Rafe: Hey, there she is. Am I interrupting?
Jennifer: No, I was just leaving.
Hope: Call me.
Rafe: All right.
Rafe: Uh... what was that?
Hope: [Exhales sharply]
Rafe: Hmm? Cottonelle asked real people about cleaning...
Belle: Have you, uh, seen my daughter? Here for a meeting, and she left with chloe.
Belle: Damn it.
Philip: Yeah, I know you're upset about this, but you'll have to take it up with chloe.
Belle: No, actually, this is your label, philip. And your main investor's not happy, so you need to deal with me.
Philip: This is really between you and claire.
Belle: Oh, so now you suddenly want to back off?
Philip: Hey, I didn't want to get in the middle here. You can always talk to chloe yourself.
Belle: As your investor?
Philip: Mother to mother. I didn't tell chloe you funded the label. You want to explain how you had that much cash?
Belle: Of course not.
Belle: Are you trying to protect me? Or you just want chloe to think you're the man? The one in charge.
Philip: I am the man in charge. That was the deal. Are you having second thoughts about that?
Claire: Okay, sure I can't get you anything?
Chloe: I'm sure.
Claire: Listen, if you don't want to work today, I would totally understand.
Chloe: No, it's okay. I could use the distraction.
Claire: Okay, sure, yeah. Um, so like I said, there's a couple of different calendar programs that we can choose from.
Chloe: Well, just use which ever one you want. Just make sure that they're on both my tablet and my phone, and that they sync automatically. And just make it one calendar, but just do my professional one in one color. And then do Parker's appointments, like his doctor's appointments, school, anything, in another color.
Claire: Got it.
Chloe: His friends' birthdays, anything that has to do with Parker, that comes first. Don't ever schedule any work stuff that will conflict with that, you understand?
Claire: Understood. Yeah, yeah, I'll get it set. Don't worry. Yeah, you--you want to be a good mom, and a dedicated professional, so you can only be in one place at a time. It totally makes sense. You know, that's--that's why I didn't want to go to college. 'Cause I don't want to split my focus. I want to be here learning the business.
Chloe: Well, that's great. That's good.
Chloe: Oh, and, uh, I have a list of things that need to be done, if that's okay, on the desk.
Claire: Of course.
Chloe: Oh, and the homeopathics for my throat, you can only get them at statler'S.
Claire: Oh, the one at the interstate bypass?
Chloe: Yeah, I know it's a bit of a hike.
Claire: Yeah, that's okay. I have a car, so I'll drive. I'll be a while though.
Chloe: Uh, that's fine. I think I need to sleep.
Chloe: Thank you. I appreciate it.
Claire: Of course. Bye.
Aiden: Jennifer? You're here to give me holy hell about hope, I'm sorry, you're going to have to make an appointment.
Jennifer: Well, this can't wait.
Aiden: Oh, trust me, there's nothing you can say that I haven't already said to myself, and I know-- I know I deserve every bit of it. Fine, come on in. Give me a piece of your mind.
Rafe: Jennifer wants aiden to represent her?
Rafe: What is she thinking? That's crazy.
Hope: It's insane. All she cares about and is focused on is getting thomas. That's it, that's all that matters to her.
Rafe: Yeah, well, if she knew that aiden tried to blow us up.
Hope: Well, obviously we can't prove that.
Rafe: Oh, I'll find a way.
Hope: What does that mean?
Rafe: You just worry about getting better.
Hope: Hernandez, look at me. Promise me you will not do anything to get yourself into trouble, nothing. I mean it. Please.
Deimos: I knew you didn't believe my words, so I took action. I've changed.
Nicole: Because you did a couple of things right?
Deimos: You have to start someplace, right?
Nicole: No, that doesn't mean you--
Deimos: Tell me.
Nicole: Okay. What you said about me, part of me that wanted vengeance on kate because she set me up, that was true.
Deimos: Of course.
Nicole: So I still have that impulse. You don't think you still have... impulses?
Deimos: [Chuckles] No, I'm quite certain I still do. After all, we are human, right? We have a pulse. We will always have urges. But we are also intelligent beings, nicole. With the capacity to resist the bad ones. With you, because of you, I am a better man.
Nicole: But you didn't give Victor back everything.
Deimos: No. I want to be the kind of man that you can be proud of, but I also want to be the kind of man who can love you, protect you, take care of you.
Nicole: I-I-I don't need...
Deimos: You don't need what? To be cared for? To be loved? I will give you everything, nicole. That is all I want. Nothing else matters to me but that. But you. And this.
Belle: Meaning do I want to be in the record business?
Philip: Or do you want to pull out? Leave me high and dry? Really?
Belle: I wanted you to have your shot, philip.
Philip: But your daughter doesn't get hers? Didn't you buy edge of the square so claire would have a place to sing?
Belle: Yes, and that was a mistake. I was...
[Sighs] Trying to buy claire's forgiveness.
Philip: Now you want her to hate you?
Belle: No, I want her to be smart. This is not a career path. Not like this.
Philip: Why are you so sure?
Belle: You listened to her demos and you didn't even sign her. Why are you so hot for this now?
Philip: Because she listened. She's learning. Claire's passionate about the business. She won't give up. Why do you want to kill her dream?
Belle: College will not kill her dream. She'll learn music from the ground up. She'll--she'll learn business so she knows how to handle herself. She'll grow as a person, as a--as an artist.
Philip: Belle, you can say all that, but she's not gonna hear you unless you support her.
Belle: Fetching coffee for chloe lane is not a career path.
Philip: Support her music. Encourage her to--
Belle: You know what? I am so sick of you telling me how to raise my daughter. You don't even know--
Philip: Oh, the hell I don't! She used to be my daughter too!
Rafe: Don't worry. Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere.
Hope: You'll leave aiden alone? Let the department work the case?
Hope: No, mm-mm. Not buying it. That was way too easy.
Rafe: Oh, come on. That's what you really want? In the past, you would have said, "let's go after these creeps ourselves."
Hope: Not anymore. Time out. I want to see our future.
Rafe: [Sighs] Me too.
Hope: Promise me you will let roman and the department go after aiden. Or André. Hey. We stick to us.
Rafe: The last part.
Hope: No. No. All of it.
Rafe: All of it. Promise.
Aiden: Sorry about that. I'm sure you can understand I need all the work I can get.
Jennifer: Well, that's why I'm here. I need a lawyer.
Aiden: You do? Are you coming to me for representation?
Jennifer: I need to sue chad dimera for custody of my grandson.
Aiden: Does hope know that you're here?
Jennifer: We are not gonna talk about hope. At all. That is number one, and I am not your way to get near to her...
Jennifer: Or find out anything about her. Do you understand me?
Aiden: Jennifer, jennifer, jennifer, jennifer, that is not why I'm asking. Okay? I'm asking because I know you two are close, and she's not gonna be happy if you hire me.
Jennifer: I know, but I can't think about that right now. My grandson is in a dangerous place. And I need him to be with me.
Aiden: Hey, wait a minute. Chad dimera is a danger to his son?
Jennifer: Yes, he is. Do you want details?
Aiden: So what are you hoping for? You hoping for, uh, temporary custody is it?
Jennifer: Permanent custody.
Aiden: Okay, but if your daughter is found, do you think--
Jennifer: No, when my daughter is found, I will worry about that. But I am not going to have this fight every couple of months. I want my grandson with me, and I suppose that means you'll need a retainer, and that is fine.
Jennifer: I am a paying client, just like any other.
Aiden: No, no, no, no. You are not like any other, okay? Or my client.
Jennifer: You don't want this case?
Jennifer: Oh, well. I guess I thought you had something to prove to this town. To prove to the dimeras. I guess I was wrong.
Aiden: Okay, look, I'm not going to do that at the expense of your relationship with hope, okay? You've known her a lot longer than I have, and I don't care what she said to you. It's not gonna be okay with her if you hire me. Look, I hurt her. I've hurt her. And I don't want to be responsible for hurting her any more, okay? So as much as I'd love to help you. I'm sorry, you're gonna have to find yourself another lawyer.
Shawn: Hey, welcome home. Why didn't you call me? I would have picked you up.
Hope: Oh, uh, jennifer wanted to bring me.
Ciara: But I didn't even have time to shop. Hey, rafe.
Rafe: Hey. How you doing? Good to see you. Uh, you gonna hang out a little bit?
Ciara: Yeah, we're here.
Rafe: Okay, good. I better get to the station. I'll see you later.
Hope: Yeah, thanks.
Shawn: Hey, rafe, I never got a chance to thank you.
Shawn: Thanks for saving our mom.
Ciara: Yeah, thanks so much. You're a total hero.
Shawn: Oh, we're hugging.
Rafe: Oh, guys.
Shawn: Thanks, man.
Rafe: Hey, your mom's a hero too, you know. So... we saved each other. See you later.
Deimos: What? What?
[Heavy breathing] Nicole?
Nicole: I-I-I ca--I can'T. I can't, not right now.
Roman: Okay, we need a contractor's license to order that, so start checking around. Any company that ordered that explosive. All right, get back to me.
Rafe: We got a signature on the bomb?
Roman: Well, the explosive is more common than I'd like, but the casing is pretty rare.
Rafe: So it is traceable?
Roman: I hope so. We could use a break.
Rafe: What about tate black?
Roman: Nothing but dead ends. Fortunately, john has offered to, uh, help us with that case. Hell, I'm shorthanded for a calm week, let alone what we've caught.
Rafe: I really want to nail André and aiden to a walL.
Roman: I get that. I get that, but you know you can't work the explosion.
Rafe: I know. I know. That's why I asked to work the kidnapping.
Roman: Yeah. There you go.
Rafe: Yeah. And plus I promised hope, so...
Roman: You really do love her, don't you?
Shawn: Arms up. All right.
Shawn: All right. Good?
Shawn: There you go.
Hope: Thanks, honey.
Shawn: And guaranteed to relax.
Hope: Aww, so sweet.
Hope: Oh, my goodness, ciara. Look what your brother got us.
[Laughter] Rom-coms, "hope in a bottle." That is hilarious. Thank you.
Ciara: Dude, come on. You want mom to be happy? We need action movies. Car chases, come on.
Shawn: Action mo-- you--you guys are--you are not, so not well.
Hope: Just figuring that out?
Shawn: [Chuckles] Hey, what do you think about, um, moving back home for a little while?
Ciara: I already did.
Hope: How are things going at the dimeras, anyway? Is chad okay?
Ciara: Um, it's a little rough not knowing where abigail is. He's worried.
Hope: He's holding it together though?
Ciara: Yeah. I mean, the best he can.
Shawn: Hey, you look exhausted.
Hope: I am.
Hope: I think I'm going to take a nap.
Shawn: All right. Um, since you're going to be sticking around, I'm gonna head into the office and let me get some stuff done, all right?
Shawn: All right, you call me if you need anything, please.
Hope: I will. Thanks, honey. Love you, shawn.
Shawn: You too. Love you. Call me if you need me, please.
Ciara: Yeah, we're good. Go find abigail and tate.
Shawn: Yeah, all right. I will.
Ciara: So you're going to sleep?
Ciara: You promise?
Hope: I promise.
Ciara: 'Cause the kitchen's bare and I need to go pick up a few things.
Hope: This is so wrong. You taking care of me.
Ciara: Mom, it's okay. Just stop. I'll be back soon, all right?
Ciara: And stop worrying about me. Everything's gonna be fine now that aiden's out of our lives.
Hope: Mm-hmm. You're right about that.
Ciara: All right, mom. I love you.
Hope: I love you too, sweetheart.
Belle: That was a low blow.
Philip: Why? I thought claire was my daughter. I loved her.
Belle: She was a toddleR.
Philip: I still care.
Belle: But you don't know her. And you haven't for years. So sitting here and pretending like you have some kind of great insight into who she is, don't--
Philip: Fine, you know what? I-I-I don't want to fight with you.
[Sighs] If you want to start a war with claire, do things your way.
Shawn: And that's for us to decide, philip. So why don't you mind your own business?
Ciara: Hey. You look, uh, rested.
Chad: Thank you. What brings you by?
Ciara: My mom just got out of the hospital, so I think I'm gonna stay there and take care of her.
Chad: Yeah, of course.
Ciara: Is everything okay? I mean, yeah, you really do look better.
Chad: That's good. In case I end up in court.
Chad: Jennifer's suing me for custody of thomas, so I need to appear to be a fit dad.
Ciara: Well, you are a fit dad. I mean, if the judge sees you and thomas, he'll see that. I can testify for you.
Chad: Thank you. But, um, you work for me, so you'd be biased. And you no longer live with me, so you can't really testify to who I am now.
Ciara: Well, all you have to do is call, and I'll be here to take care of thomas whenever you need me.
Deimos: Chloe? Are you all right?
Chloe: Never been better.
Deimos: Well, that's obviously not true, I can see--
Chloe: You know what, my life is none of your business.
Nicole: Hey, dario. It's nicole. Where are you? I'd--I'd love to see you.
Deimos: I will give you everything, nicole. That is all I want. Nothing else matters to me but that. But you. And this.
Jennifer: No, I need mr. Myers soonest appointment. No, this can't wait. This is very important that I speak to him. I need to-- yes. Yes, you have my number. Thank you.
Chad: Hi, jennifer.
Chad: Doing some shopping for thomas?
Jennifer: Yeah, he just-- just needs some things, you know.
Chad: I think he has everything he needs. Thank you. How was your meeting with aiden?
Jennifer: You talked to aiden?
Chad: I heard it through the grapevine. You really coming after my son?
Jennifer: Chad, listen to me. I'm not trying to make this a big thing, okay? Just let me take him for a little while. You have so much thinking to do. You have so much that you need to do to find abigail.
Chad: You know, don't-- don't patronize me, okay? You take thomas and then you're gonna what? Say that I gave up on my son?
Jennifer: No, I just want him safe, that's all.
Chad: He is safe. You know what, your daughter would be ashamed of you.
Jennifer: I doubt that. Will you think about it, please?
Chad: I have. You want to take my son? I'll see you in court.
Rafe: Okay, we'll work our sources and see if we get a hit on those names. Thanks, john.
Roman: Okay, I'm going to forensics.
Rafe: On the explosive?
Roman: Yeah. You want updates?
Rafe: No. No, you keep me out of it. Unless aiden tries anything else. Then all bets are off.
Ciara: Dude, I told you--
Aiden: Just let me see her.
Aiden: Listen to me, ciara. I love her, I love her.
Ciara: No! You're worse than your son.
Aiden: You do not understand. Your mother needs me.
Ciara: No, she doesn't!
Aiden: And I'm not gonna let you or anyone stop me--hope!
Hope: Leave her alone.
