Provided By SuzanneDeimos: You can't keep secrets from me, Chloe. I know everything.
Chloe: He doesn't know. It's not possible.
Nicole: No. Drop the smile.
Nicole: And don't talk. The fact that I'm here, the fact that I just told you I can't get you out of my head is...is not a good thing! And quite frankly, I feel like I'm in a nightmare and I can't wake up. The thing is, Deimos, you said that we're a lot alike. And I'm here to tell you that we're not--you got that? Now you can talk.
Deimos: Can I get you a brandy?
Nicole. Yes. Please. And make it a double.
Deimos: Can't tell you how happy I am that you showed up here. And for the record... I think it's perfectly wonderful that you can't get me out of your head. Because all I do is think of you.
Nicole: Well, don't get your hopes up.
Deimos: Any higher than they already are? So you say we're not alike.
Nicole: We're not.
Nicole: Okay, fine, you know what? We used to be, but we're not anymore. I used to go after whatever I wanted, anytime, anywhere, and if someone got in my way, I ran them over, and I liked it that way. Things are a lot easier when you're selfish.
Deimos: Indeed, they are.
Nicole: And then I met Daniel. And he was so loving and caring.
Deimos: And he changed you.
Nicole: Yes. He did. From my core. And he taught me how to care, and he reminded me that seeing other people happy is--is the best! And that is all I have left of him now. And because he changed me, I will never go back to being the way I was, the way you are. So you see, I'm not the person you think I am. And you have got to get me out of your head, and I have got to get you out of mine.
Deimos: Nicole... I understand. I do. Perfectly. And just so you know... I have no desire whatsoever to change you at all. 'Cause the truth is... what I'm hoping, asking... is that you'll change me.
Woman, distorted voice: Why did you give up on Thomas and me?
Chad: I haven't given up on anything--I've done everything I can.
[Distorted] You are pathetic! No wonder my mother is trying to take Thomas away from you. You are not even fit to be in the same room with him!
Chad: Why would you say that?
[Distorted]: Admit it--you failed us. You are a miserable excuse for a father.
Chad: Abby, stop, w-- you're the one that ran off. I've been here doing everything I can to keep this family together and to find you. Where have you been?
[Distorted]: Where have I been? You idiot! I'm right here!
[Softly, normal voice]
Chad: Jennifer, I don't know what the hell you think you're doing here, but I'm not having any conversations with you without our lawyers present, so...would you please get the hell out?
Jennifer: Listen to you... you're so in charge.
Chad: Get out.
Jennifer: You know, I wouldn't be surprised if we never saw Abigail again.
Chad: Why the hell would you say that?
Jennifer: Why? Do you feel guilty? We both know that you're the reason she's gone. You drove her over the edge. She ran for her life.
Chad: It's nobody's fault.
Jennifer: You didn't love her enough.
Chad: I loved her with every piece of me.
Jennifer: Oh, you're such a DiMera! You are so self-centered. You think you are the most important person on the entire earth, don't you?
Chad: Would you shut the hell up? I'd give anything to have her back--anything in this entire world.
Jennifer: Yeah, well, day late and a dollar short, and I'm telling you right now, if you think you're gonna destroy another member of my family, think again.
Chad: You will never get Thomas, you hear me? Ever.
Jennifer: Guess what. I already have him. See?
Chad: Thank God.
Belle: Hey. Butler said I should just come on back.
Chad: Yeah, uh, he does that. Hi.
Belle: What's going on? You look...spooked.
Chad: I just--I had a--A... dream that I lost Thomas.
Belle: Well, that's why I'm here--make sure that never happens.
Nicole: Damn it, Deimos, we've already had this conversation, okay? You stood right here in your living room, and you told me how much you've changed--that you found a surgeon that might help Maggie walk again, and you gave Victor back half his fortune.
Deimos: And Titan.
Nicole: Oh, and Titan.
Deimos: Because of you.
Nicole: Okay, just stop for a minute, please. I'm not your life coach.
Deimos: I see you...as a beautiful, loving woman... who has the power to influence me any way she so desires.
Nicole: Deimos... if you wanna change, then go find religion or something or talk to a shrink. Just don't look at me.
Deimos: But I am looking at you. And I can't stop looking at you. For your information, you've already changed me.
Nicole: Can we just please get real for a minute here? First of all, as I've pointed out ad nauseum, the only reason you're attracted to me is because I look like Helena.
Nicole: Yes! You know what, and whether you've gotten over that or not, I don't know. But the truth is...you haven't seen the real me. Now you've decided that I'm filled with some kind of cleansing power and I'm the only one who can save you from your bad self. Well, guess what. I don't want to. I don't wanna be your guru any more than I wanna be some old photograph come to life.
Deimos: Of course you don't! And, yes, of course, you look like Helena. But I have had 30 years to accept this fact... Helena is dead, Nicole. And I don't want you to be her. Look, I'm gonna make a confession right here, okay? You're right. What I thought I wanted when I first met you was the person I thought you were--someone just like me. I could see myself in you, Nicole, and I think you saw yourself in me too. I believe you still do.
Nicole: Oh, Deimos--
Deimos: That's why you can't get me out of your head...no matter how hard you try. When I got to know you...the real you... I came to realize something. You're not like me at all-- not anymore. You've obviously changed. You've been traveling on a very different path than I have. So...what I'm hoping is that... you'll let me travel on that path with you. We could have a much better life, Nicole, together. Isn't that what you really want?
Chad: Isn't it, um, kinda late to be making house calls on a case?
Belle: [Chuckles] What? Sun goes down and my mind goes blank?
Chad: You just don't strike me like the kinda woman that burns the midnight oil. [Laughs]
Belle: I am the kind of woman who likes to stay on top of things so that you won't lose your son.
Chad: Right. Okay, then, um...then what are we doing?
Belle: Well, you need to get yourself together. You have to show that you're a fit parent.
Chad: Yeah, and I'm working on that. I mean, I have, uh... [Ahem] Spruced up the...the place. Myself. I've...quit the sauce.
Belle: Good. Yeah. So we need to show the judge that you're building a real life for your son, okay? So we'll try and build you up and then...we'll start tearing Jennifer down. I mean, a drug addict is clearly unfit to have a small child in her home. Even though Jennifer says she's in recovery...the rate of recidivism for opioid addiction is... [Laughs] I mean, it's hard to measure for obvious reasons, but anyone who knows anything about addiction knows it's high. Dangerously high.
Jennifer: What can I say, aunt Maggie? I'm just trying to stay busy, you know? No. There's, uh, been no word on Abigail. But I'm in Thomas's nursery, so that feels good. Yeah, it's the one she set up before she moved out, so I just wanna it nice and...just have it all nice for him, you know? Have you heard anything about Tate? Yeah, no, I know--not knowing is the hardest part. Okay, well, call me if you need anything, all right? And please tell Brady that we're thinking about him. Okay. Bye-bye. Oh! Oh, man. [Groans]
Chloe: Parker, I know that Jason's dad said it was okay this time, but I want you in bed as soon as that movie's over, okay? All right, good. Love you. Night.
Nicole: Um... Deimos, like I said before, I-- if you wanna change and build a better life, that's awesome. Really, it's great.
Deimos: Certainly would be, with you by my side.
Nicole: I don't think I'm qualified to be your inspiration or your troupe leader or...
Deimos: And how 'bout my partner?
Nicole: I've gotta go. Good luck with your new whatever. You're on your own, so thank you for your--
Deimos: You know... last time we tried to talk this through, you ran out. Remember? So what do you say we just stick this out for a few minutes longer, okay? Can I ask you something? What else do you have going on in your life right now? Your career's in limbo...yes? I can open up any door that you would like to walk through.
Nicole: Well, that's...
Deimos: And I will make you this promise right here and now. From today until forever... I will never lie to you, Nicole, about anything. And if you're with me... I will never let anyone hurt you. Nobody stands between us anymore. I know I can make you very happy, Nicole, if you'll only give me the chance. Every day that we have from this moment forward... would be magnificent.
Nicole: Deimos, that sounds like a proposal.
Deimos: That it is. Marry me, Nicole.
Chad: Believe me, I want custody of my son. That's the only thing that I want, but... the idea of ripping into Jennifer, I just--I think that I've--I've changed my mind about wanting to do it.
Belle: You think Jennifer's lawyer won't be ripping your life apart?
Chad: It's just that Jennifer's...in recovery. She's hanging on for dear life, probably, and Abby wouldn't want me doing that, so I don't think I should do that.
Belle: Well, just relax. We're not telling lies about her, we're just...implying. We're helping the judge to see it our way. Chad, this is a custody battle. There's no room for nice. The only thing that counts is who gets to raise your son-- you.
Dario: Chloe lane.
Chloe: Dario! My God... you're back in Salem, huh?
Dario: Yeah, I am. Looks like I'm not the only one.
Chloe: Yeah! Yeah, I just-- I came back with my son a little while ago.
Dario: Parker, right?
Chloe: Yeah, right. So...how long have you been back?
Dario: Six, seven months. I just took over running this place.
Chloe: That's great.
Dario: Tell you what. How 'bout I get you a welcome back drink on the house? What would you like?
Chloe: Very sweet. I'll have a glass of cabernet. Uh, actually, second thought-- I'll just have a ginger ale.
Dario: You got it.
Nicole: The last time you tried to put a ring on my finger, you almost died.
Deimos: And I would brave that river a thousand times over...if you would say yes. So what do you say? Will you take a chance... with me?
I had that dream again --
Chad: Well, tell you what. Why don't I sleep on the last part...and you know, I mean, I'm already like--I'm getting this place together and... cleaning myself up, and I'm working on fixing the company so it's all legit. But I just--tearing Jennifer down doesn't--
Belle: I get it. Abigail wouldn't want that. But remember, Jennifer's the one that's coming after you. Which is...kinda weird, trying to prove that she would do a better job raising Thomas when her own daughter was just institutionalized--
You know--okay, fine. I get it. But Jennifer does love Thomas, and she's also dealing with the fact that...
Belle: Abigail's never coming back, yeah. What about you?
Chad: I hope every day.
Belle: Listen... don't take this the wrong way, okay? The judge can't sense that you're not strong enough to take care of Thomas on your own, so...the fact that Abigail abandoned you doesn't even get a mention.
Chad: Stop--don't use that word, I-- she didn't abandon us. She just--she got--she got lost for a minute. So I'm gonna continue to hope that one of these days one of my men is gonna bring her through these doors, and then everything will just--you know, it'll-- it'll just work itself out.
Bell: That's a nice thought. Being optimistic. It's hard to do that sometimes.
Chad: Plus, if that happens, Jennifer will obviously have to stop the custody suit.
Belle: Well...let's hope it works out that way. In the meantime, I'm gonna be preparing a strong case that fatherhood trumps a grandmother with known issues. Nobody's perfect...that's for sure. Okay.
Chad: Uh, w-wh-- what's going on? You seem like... I mean, you want to talk about something?
["Fur Elise" plays on piano]
[Playing "Fur Elise"]
Deimos: It's Beethoven.
Nicole: The way you play... you play with such feeling. I hardly ever see that side of you.
Deimos: It's just when I play...I go to a private place. Honestly, I'm surprised I let myself share it with you.
Nicole: Are you sorry you did?
Deimos: No. Not for a second. I wanna share everything with you. I'm sorry. Did that come across like I was pressuring you?
Nicole: Deimos, where is this gonna end up?
Deimos: That's entirely up to you, isn't it?
Nicole: I can't... say yes right now.
Deimos: I get it. You need time to think.
Nicole: I'm still so overwhelmed by--
Deimos: I know, I know, it's all right, Nicole. Take all the time you need. I think I made myself pretty clear about my feelings... the love I have for you, my desire to be with you. I want so much to be the father of your children. What is it? Something wrong?
Nicole: Nothing. Never mind. I should go.
Deimos: What? Why? Why can't you stay the night?
Chloe: So, yeah, Philip's positive that my career's gonna take off. I just need a breakout album.
Dario: And you'll get it. You're gonna be awesome.
Chloe: Well, I don't know about awesome. Maybe if I was 21 again and naive, I would buy that, but... I don't know. I mean, you know that I've always dreamed about being a singer but...no matter how big I dream or how hard I work, everything always seems to just...crash and burn.
Belle: I mean, of all the ways to plan your future, right? Thank you.
Chad: You're welcome.
Belle: Claire has no idea what the world has in store for her, but without a college degree...
Chad: Yeah, but...you know, she's a teenager...so she could change her mind in a heartbeat, and next week she'll be doing a 180.
Belle: [Chuckles] Raising Thomas will be a challenge. It's rewarding...as hell. It's rewarding. But it's a challenge. And there will be no shortage of people along the way telling you how to do it. The one thing you really need to trust, though, always, is that your love for your son will always show you what's right. What?
Chad: You just...sound like you're telling yourself that as much as you are telling me.
Belle: [Laughs] Trust me, you'll worry about Thomas too when he starts making wrong decisions.
Chad: I heard you were getting back together with Shawn. Is Claire making that more difficult?
Belle: That's, uh, not really your concern.
Chad: You're right. But getting custody of my son is, and you're my lawyer, so I wanna make sure you're focused and that there aren't any distractions. Wanna try something new?
Belle: At the risk of repeating myself, Chad, I am a professional. I never let my personal life interfere with my work.
Chad: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to insult you. It's just...
Belle: [Laughs] Really?
Chad: Yes, really. I want you to know what I've got on the line here. I don't know what everybody else has been saying, but maybe I-- I let Abby down. I'm not gonna do the same thing with Thomas.
Belle: Good. Then just...do what needs to be done, okay? Shave, dress conservatively. Stay outta trouble. Eighty-six the drinking and fix those issues with your businesses.
Chad: Done and done.
Belle: Good. Then for now, we are done. Night.
Chad: Thank you. See you soon. So... do I really have to tear someone else down just to get what I want?
Dario: You know, I saw you sing once at chez rouge. You were... ridiculously great. And in case you haven't looked in a mirror lately, you still stop traffic. So don't be so down on your chances. People are gonna want to see you, hear you, make you a star.
Chloe: Wow. A free drink and a pep talk. I should come here more often.
Dario: I'm serious.
Chloe: I know you're serious, and you're so sweet. Thank you. I don't--I don't know. Maybe things'll work out well. You never know. Um... you know what, would you excuse me for a minute? Thank you so much for the drink.
Dario: You're welcome.
Chloe: This will be continued.
Dario: Come back.
Chloe: Hey, what's happening?
Nicole: A lot. I don't think you want to hear about it.
Chloe: I'm gonna assume that means you're...talking about Deimos? Nicole, we're friends.
Nicole: I know.
Chloe: You can talk to me.
Nicole: I know.
Chloe: Hey, I'm here for you no matter what.
Nicole: [Laughs] Deimos asked me to marry him.
Chad: Yeah, I can hear you, old man. Tried to run your entire life from who you are. You wanna keep your son, you have to do what's necessary and be a DiMera.
Belle: Chad, this is a custody battle. There's no room for nice. The only thing that counts is who gets to raise your son. You.
Chad: All right. Do whatever it takes.
Jennifer: Soon, Thomas. Very soon.
Chloe: Did you give him an answer?
Chloe: So... you're not sure.
Nicole: Oh, I'm absolutely sure. I should run as fast and far away as I can.
Chloe: But you don't want to.
Nicole: I can't stop thinking about him. [Laughs]
Chloe: I hear ya. Been there and done that myself, remember? When I thought he was Robert. He can be... [Sighs] Quite enticing.
Nicole: He's just so damned...secure and strong and yet... he can be so vulnerable and just...so open and ready to care. I mean, he's changed. He's changed so much. And he wants to change even more. He wants to be...a different man.
Chloe: Well, just... be careful. Could be playing you.
Nicole: I know. I know, Chloe, I-- he wants me to run basic black. No matter what I decide.
Chloe: So he wants to keep you close.
Nicole: He does. There are so many reasons to say yes... including the way I feel. And there are definitely down sides.
Nicole: And the biggest one being that he wants a family. Children--I mean, it's the one thing that I can't give him.
Chloe: Um... Nicole, listen, I--I don't know. I think you really should take some time, that you should really think about this. I mean, really, really think about this. If there's anything I know about Deimos, it's that no matter how convincing he is, you just can't trust him.
Nicole: Yeah, I know. But I've been where he is. I know what it's like to work your butt off to change and then have no one believe you.
Chloe: Well, I'm--I'm here for you, no matter what. Anytime you wanna talk, okay?
Nicole: Yeah, okay, I just, um...I-I-I just need to take a long walk, okay? I'll talk to you later.
Chloe: Okay. Sure.
Dario: Yeah. Yeah, no, I got it.
Ooh ooh yeah yeah deep in my heart of hearts I always knew you were the one for me and I for you I always knew in time you would be mine
