Episode #12972 ~ Adrienne finally decides between Justin & Lucas; Hope finds an unlikely ally in prison; Rafe appeals to Steve to help him with Hope's predicament; Claire & Theo decide to take their relationship to the next level.
Provided By SuzanneRafe: Thanks.
Steve: Wow. You look like you could use something stronger. Should I break out the bourbon?
Rafe: No. Not yet, anyway.
Steve: Tell me what I can do to help.
Rafe: I want to hire black patch to get hope out of prison. Dig up some dirt on Fitzpatrick or even Trask. Anything. Could really use all the help I can get.
Steve: I hear you.
Rafe: And Justin, he's working on an appeal, but... well, considering that hope admitted she killed Stefano, I find it highly unlikely that a court is gonna want to hear an argument for a more lenient sentence.
Steve: So that's where the dirt/coercion comes into play?
Steve: That's called blackmail, dude. We might as well be planning a jailbreak.
Rafe: Well, then what are we gonna do?
Hope: Uh, do you have a minute, officer Ortiz? Uh, I noticed that some of the-- the inmates have jobs. I was hoping for an employment opportunity for myself.
Ortiz: There's a lot of inmates that have been here a lot longer. All looking for work.
Hope: Yeah, I got it, and I understand that I might have to wait a while.
Ortiz: I'll do what I can.
Hope: Thank you, Officer Ortiz.
Justin: So, after your long night of soul-searching, in which you promptly fell asleep, have you made a decision?
Lucas: You know, I think it's time we take matters into our own hands.
Justin: What do you have in mind?
Lucas: Call room service. They'll bring us a wishbone. Whoever breaks off the biggest piece gets the girl. What do you think, Adrienne?
Adrienne: That's not funny.
Justin: Not even close.
[Knocking on door]
Justin: Come on in, Sonny.
Sonny: So? Have you finally made up your mind?
Adrienne: [Sighs] I'm--I'm sorry, Sonny. You know what? This idea of yours, it's not gonna work.
Claire: Like, seriously, did I kill it or what? I mean, what could be a better gift for foodies than a talking meat thermometer and a digital multi-function kitchen scale?
Theo: Yeah, no, uh, your mom and dad are gonna love their presents.
Claire: Mm-hmm. I mean, I'm gonna get them other stuff, but I think it's a good start.
Theo: Yeah, and speaking-- speaking of presents, um, what do you-- what do you want for Christmas?
Claire: Theo, that's really sweet, but you do not have to get me anything.
Theo: Well, no, no. I want to, and, um, I mean, besides, it's what people in our situation do, right?
Claire: Our situation?
Claire: Like, what exactly is our situation? Are we--are we boyfriend/girlfriend? And if so, like, what's the next step?
Theo: Uh, I'm not really sure.
Claire: Oh, well, I actually have an idea or two. How about I show you?
Steve: Listen, I'm not saying it's impossible, I just don't know yet what our play's gonna be.
Rafe: Okay. I hear where you're coming from, but this is hope that we are talking about. I have to get her out. I promised her.
Steve: I'm gonna help you do that. Bo was counting on me to take care of hope. And the kids.
Rafe: Yeah, me too.
Steve: You too.
Steve: So we're not gonna let him down, are we?
Steve: We're gonna do this.
Rafe: See, now, that's what I'm talking about.
Sonny: Mother dear, can you step out into my office please? Mom, this has gone on long enough.
Adrienne: Oh, I'm sorry it's frustrating.
Sonny: Frustrating? I'm totally at the end of my rope, woman. This is not fair. To Dad, to you, to Lucas. To anyone.
Adrienne: Look, this is my life we're talking about, okay? It's not some tennis match.
Sonny: Well, that ball is in your court.
Sonny: So which man are you gonna choose?
Adrienne: I don't know.
Sonny: What is your gut saying?
Adrienne: In this moment?
Adrienne: My gut is telling me that I should strangle my youngest son for even putting me in this awful position.
Sonny: You know I'm doing this because it's what's best for you.
Adrienne: Really, Sonny? Really?
Sonny: You need to decide what you want.
Sonny: Who and what is truly going to make you happy?
Paul: Can't believe that you're still here.
Sonny: Oh, hey. [Groans]
Paul: I got your text. What's going on?
Sonny: Um... well, my mom, the reigning queen of indecision, has yet to make up her mind. I'm guessing that you have news, though?
Paul: Yeah, Steve and I, we lifted one of the crates from the Hernandez shipment.
Sonny: And? Purses?
Paul: And some other small luxury items.
Sonny: And these are...
Paul: Well, they're knockoffs. But they're not smuggling anything illegal like drugs or guns. At least not yet.
Sonny: Well, I guess that's a good thing. Just seems way too innocent for the Hernandez guys. And then to do a deal with Deimos? Just seems like it'd be way more than purses.
Paul: Yeah, well, I'll keep looking into it.
Sonny: All right. Thank you.
Paul: Yeah. You okay?
Sonny: Uh, yeah, I just... [Groans] I've been sleeping funny, so my neck is, like, screwed up.
Paul: Well, maybe I can help. I, uh, picked up some techniques from the pt assigned to our ball club. Turn around. Just--just turn around.
Adrienne: You know, guys, I'm beginning to think Lucas' wishbone proposal's not such a bad idea after all.
Justin: We'd better figure something out, because I'm not sure I can stay cooped up in this room much longer without wanting to blow my brains out.
Lucas: Well, perfect. You're ready to give up. Nice.
Justin: No, Lucas. I'm not giving up, much to your disappointment. I'm just stating that this room, and one of its occupants, is starting to make me feel a little claustrophobic.
Lucas: Oh, gee, gee. We're having such a blast together too.
Justin: And who can even slumber for five minutes with you grinding your teeth all night long.
Adrienne: Excuse me? I wasn't grinding my teeth.
Justin: Yes, you were. As usual, but don't worry, because you were out cold, and your fiancÚ and I were up pacing the floor. Praying for the sun to come up.
Adrienne: Even if I was grinding my teeth, why would that keep you awake?
Justin: Because it sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard. It's not a pleasant sound. Not to mention, it's not good for your teeth.
Adrienne: You know what? I'll worry about my own teeth. Thank you very much.
Justin: You wouldn't have to worry if you had got a night guard like I told you to get years ago, but you didn't listen to me because you're in total denial.
Adrienne: Because I do not grind my teeth, period. What are you grinning at?
Adrienne: What? What? Spit it out.
Lucas: I'm just saying, honey, you know you grind your teeth. I told you about that last week. I mentioned that.
Adrienne: Yes, yes, you mentioned it, and I explained to you that you were probably hearing crickets or something. And you had the good grace to let go.
Lucas: Whoa, wait a second here--
Adrienne: Whoa, what?
Lucas: You're being stubborn off the charts right now.
Adrienne: Oh, me? Really?
Justin: Yeah. You. Here we are, Lucas and I, stating a simple fact.
Adrienne: A fact? A fact has to be true. You guys are stating a falsehood, and it's not very simple, either.
Lucas: All right, let's just drop it, okay?
Adrienne: And don't call me stubborn.
Justin: How about contrary?
Adrienne: Much worse.
Justin: Willful. Hardheaded? Inflexible?
Adrienne: You don't--
Adrienne: You guys are ganging up on me? Seriously, right now? Oh.
Kayla: Hey. Hi.
Kayla: Sorry I'm late. I, uh, I got caught up with Seth burns, but I won't bore you with all the details.
Kayla: Something wrong?
Steve: Well, Rafe stopped by. He's hell-bent on getting hope out of prison. And I want to do that, but he's talking a little crazy.
Kayla: Steve Johnson crazy?
Steve: Yeah, as a matter of fact. And I understand why Rafe is panicking. Because in prison, hope's in trouble.
Hope: Come on.
Sheila: Yo, officer Ortiz, hate to be a bad news betty, but two inmates is throwing punches in the laundry room. It's turning into a real bloodbath. You better go see. Hey. Computer time is up.
Hope: Yeah, well, I haven't gotten online yet. Just be a few more minutes, and then you can have it.
Sheila: It's our turn.
Hope: But right now, it's mine.
Sheila: I don't think you understand.
Coco: We want the computer, and we want it now.
Hope: Or what?
Sheila: [Laughs] Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold up. You used to being a badass, huh? But in here, you're nothing. You're not a detective. You don't have a gun, a badge, or no backup.
Coco: But she does have a nice smile.
Sheila: Better fall in line, brave girl. Or we gonna do to you what we did to your cute little photo.
Sheila: Yeah, that's right. We're the ones who tore the head off your adorable family picture on Thanksgiving.
Coco: Gobble, gobble.
Hope: Fine. Computer's all yours. Only took 40 minutes to warm up. Boom! Good luck getting that baby running again--
Coco: You're dead, bitch. It's time you learned your place.
Claire: Catch my drift?
Theo: I do. Um, and, uh, Claire.
Theo: Well, I mean, maybe if--if you're not busy, I was wondering if you wanted to go with me on a date tonight. You know, there's a free concert at the pier.
Claire: Yes, I would love to. I would love to.
Theo: All right, cool.
Claire: With my boyfriend.
Theo: Awesome. Yeah. Let me just call my dad and let him know I'm not gonna be home for dinner, though.
Theo: All right. No service. I'll be back.
Claire: Ciara. Hi. Um, I'm actually so glad that you're here. I have this major problem on my hands, and you're the only one that can help me.
Paul: How's that feel?
Sonny: Feels great.
Paul: Oh, sounds like there's trouble in there.
Sonny: Yeah, I got to-- I hate to cut this short, but I should go check that out. Thank you for the neck rub and the intel.
Paul: Yeah, anytime. Um, you want some help in there?
Sonny: No, no. I got it. So, thank you.
Lucas: Adrienne, calm down. That was a nice piece.
[All shouting at once]
Sonny: Whoa, whoa, Mom. Sit down.
Adrienne: I am so sick of the two of you right now.
Sonny: Sit. Sit. Sit down. Calm down. If you're so sick of Dad and Lucas, maybe you don't want either one of them. Why don't you download tinder?
Adrienne: You know what?
Sonny: Start swiping.
Adrienne: Don't tempt me.
Sonny: Well, either way, throwing breakables is not the answer.
Lucas: It's pretty clear we're all--we're all at our wit's ends right now, okay? Why don't we just back off, everybody separate, and we'll just revisit this in a few days or something.
Justin: Lucas actually may have a point.
Adrienne: Well, I disagree. I've heard what you have to say. And how you behaved. And I've listened to my heart.
Justin: So...you're saying--
Adrienne: Yes. I've made my decision.
Kayla: It's so quiet here.
Steve: Yeah. With Joe and his baby mama out and about.
Kayla: Can we pick a different expression, please?
Steve: Um... mother-to-be? I know this is not and ideal situation.
Kayla: You know, don't sugarcoat it. When I think of that girl, and her agenda, I--
Steve: Yeah, well, you know, Joe played a big part in this himself.
Kayla: I know that.
Steve: And you know what? He wants to take responsibility. And that's a good thing. He doesn't want his child to grow up without a father. I respect that. And I know you do too. We're gonna get through this. As a family. Hmm.
Kayla: Yes, we are.
Steve: Can I get another one of those?
Steve: Can I? Wait a minute. We have the house to ourselves for a little while, don't we?
Kayla: Yes, we do, Mr. Johnson.
Steve: Mr. Johnson, is it? Okay. Come with me.
Kayla: [Laughs] Yes?
Steve: Better hurry.
Kayla: [Laughing] [Grunting]
Hope: You touch me again, you'll regret it.
Sheila: You watch--
Back off! And do it now. Or else.
Marlena? What are you, crazy? I'm the sexy one. I'm Hattie. E new false lash look?
Ciara: So what kind of major problem?
Claire: Right, so I need to get Theo the prefect Christmas gift. And now that we're boyfriend and girlfriend, it's just really important, and I need ideas, ASAP.
Claire: Mm-hmm, well, I just really want it to be something that'll blow his mind and show him just how much I care.
Ciara: Well, since you're his girlfriend, I'm surprised you don't know what he's into or what he likes.
Claire: Um, I--I do know some things. Like, I know his favorite frozen yogurt flavor is salted caramel, and, um, I know that he likes Thai noodles, medium spicy, and he loves the chainsmokers. They're a DJ duo.
Ciara: Yes, I-- I know who they are.
Claire: Yeah, well, anyway, you know, I just--I haven't really known Theo long enough to be super familiar with the more important things. And I figured since you guys have known each other since you were like babies, that, um... you definitely just know him a lot better than I do. You know what makes him tick, and what makes him not tick. Please? You got to help me out.
Ciara: [Sighs] Okay, there's this baseball card. He has been after it forever. Ron Santo. He was a third baseman for the cubs, and then the white sox after that.
Claire: That sounds perfect. You know, I've never heard of Ron Santo, but I'm sure that my uncle Paul will know exactly who he is. As a matter of fact, I am gonna text him right now. Oh. See? You really do know Theo better than anyone. Thank you so much.
Hattie: [Groans] Sorry those dames were giving you such a bad time. Welcoming committee leaves a lot to be desired around here.
Hope: Can't argue with you there.
Hattie: Looks like you handled yourself pretty well there.
Hope: Thanks for stepping in.
Hattie: Hm, okay.
Hope: I'm sorry. Still trying to wrap my head around the chances of running into you of all people in here.
Hattie: Yeah. Well, I'm not exactly proud to be incarcerated, babe. Fact is, I turned my life around since the last time I saw you. Whole Salem stalker business. Ah, it seems like the dark ages now. Old Stefano tried to transform me into Dr. Marlena. Didn't turn out so well, did it? He really blew it. And he never kept his promise to me, either. So for my part, I'm glad for what you did.
Hope: What did I do?
Hattie: What did you do? You did what I always wanted to do. You filled the old coot full of lead.
Hope: How do you know about that?
Hattie: How do I know about that? It's my job to know everybody's story in here. Besides, I read the rags, you know. You were in there from cover to cover.
Hope: Well, like you, Hattie, I'm not proud of what I've done. Now I'm paying the price in here.
Hattie: You know, the thing is... it's not really safe for a decorated cop in here.
Hope: And what are you gonna do? Show me the ropes? Teach me how to survive? Hmm?
Hattie: Maybe. You do okay. But as far as survival skill goes, you're-- you're about an eight. We need to get you up to an 11, babe. So the dames in here know that you have got yourself some friends.
Hope: But I don't.
Hattie: You don't? Come on, slim. You got me! My belly pain and constipation?
Claire: Awesome. See you soon.
Ciara: So Paul's on the case?
Claire: Yeah, yeah. I'm gonna meet with him about the baseball card right now, actually. So just tell Theo I say "bye," okay? I'll be back soon.
Ciara: Okay. Good luck.
Rafe: How's it going?
Ciara: Uh, I'm--I'm fine. Yeah.
Rafe: Listen, I know how hard this must be for you, with everything that your mom's going through. But trust me on this: We are doing everything that we can to get her out.
Ciara: Yeah, I know that. And I'm very grateful. I am.
Rafe: But something else is on your mind. Want to talk about it?
Ciara: No, I don't want... actually--actually, I probably should. I think I'm starting to have feelings for Theo again. But the problem is that he's taken. And it's all my fault because I blew him off, and now he's... [Sighs]
Rafe: You miss him.
Rafe: Right. Do you want my advice? Just talk to him. Tell him how you feel. Just be honest with him.
Ciara: But I can't do that. I mean, what if he rejects me. Or what if I hurt Claire? It's too big of a risk. And besides, they both seem to be really into each other.
Rafe: Well, okay, I mean, you said it. They both seem to be really into each other, so you should probably--you should probably move on. But don't worry, I mean, come on, kid, look at you. All right? You will meet someone else soon. I guarantee you.
Theo: Sorry it took so long. I finally got ahold of my dad and told him about the concert.
Claire: Oh, awesome. That's great.
Theo: Yeah. Um, well, and I was--I was also thinking that maybe we could invite Ciara.
Claire: Oh...yeah. Yeah, that's a good idea.
Theo: Cool. All right.
Claire: Sorry, wait. I mean, maybe not.
Claire: I mean, I--I just don't want to make her feel like a third wheel. Like...this is kind of a date for us, so...
Theo: No, no. Yeah. Right. But I mean, I just, uh... I don't know, I wish there was something we could do for her. I just hate that she's all alone, you know?
Claire: Yeah. Yeah. Sorry, hold that thought. I'm just gonna run one quick errand before the concert tonight. But I do think that we can do something to help Ciara after all. But I'll need your help, okay?
Theo: All right. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Just tell me.
Adrienne: Where are you going?
Sonny: I just thought you'd want to be alone with Dad and Lucas when you tell them what your decision is.
Adrienne: No. It's okay. I want you to stay. So. Here we are. As I've said, I love you both. In very different ways. Lucas. I'm my best self when I'm with you. You have pushed me to do much more that I ever thought I could. You got me to do a triathlon. And bungee jump off a bridge. More importantly, you taught me how to enjoy the quiet moments in life. Justin. I was so broken when you first met me. You helped make me the woman I am today. We raised a family together. You are a part of me, and always will be. And...[Sighs]
Lucas: Here, and take mine.
Adrienne: Thank you. I feel incredibly lucky to be loved by two of the most amazing men that I've ever met. In spite of the fact that they think I grind my teeth. Seriously, this is... this is by far the hardest decision I've ever had to make. But I know now... the man I want to spend the rest of my life with.
Sonny: So. Who's it gonna be?
Hi, I'm Paul
Steve: Baby? I got out of the shower and you were gone.
Steve: What's going on?
Kayla: Just was thinking of our kids. I just wanted to look at some pictures of them when they were little.
Steve: Oh. Wow. [Sighs] Stephanie. My little sweetness.
Kayla: She is so proud of that soccer uniform. Remember that?
Steve: She looks so cute in it too. Joe. Look at baby Joe. Even back then, he was always mugging for the camera.
Kayla: Wow. They're so grown up. And now he's gonna have a baby of his own.
Kayla: Time went by so fast. Why'd we waste it being apart?
Steve: That's the biggest regret of my life. That I wasn't with you and the kids the whole time. [Sighs] Well, that's in the past. 'Cause I'm here now. I'm always gonna be around.
Kayla: I love hearing that.
Steve: And now, we're gonna have a grandbaby to spoil.
Kayla: [Chuckles] Yikes.
Steve: [Laughs] It'll be fun.
Kayla: Just the thought of us being grandparents. I don't know.
Steve: Oh. Well, let me be the first to tell you, you are one sexy grandma.
Kayla: [Laughs] Well, you're pretty sexy yourself, grandpa.
Steve: I love you so much.
Theo: Ciara, hey.
Ciara: Hey. Uh, Claire just left.
Theo: Oh, yeah, no, I actually just ran into her. Um, but no, we were thinking that maybe you wanted to come with us to the concert tonight down at the pier?
Ciara: Oh. Um, thanks, but I think I'm gonna feel like a--
Theo: A third wheel?
Theo: Yeah. Claire actually said you were gonna say that.
Ciara: Well, she's right. And I think you guys should get some alone time. Just you guys. What's wrong?
Theo: [Clears throat] All right, so, look: Online dating. Have you, like, ever-- have you ever thought about it? Or...
Ciara: Um... yeah, actually, I have. And I actually downloaded an app, but I never activated it. It makes me kind of nervous.
Theo: Well, okay, well, maybe you won't be so nervous if you didn't have to do it alone, all right, 'cause, see, I was thinking that maybe we could, you know, set up your profile, like, together.
Paul: So, a Ron Santo baseball card, huh?
Claire: Yeah, so I thought it would be the perfect Christmas gift for Theo, and I was hoping that with your connections...
Paul: You know, actually, I do know a guy who might be able to hook you up. Let me check in on it?
Claire: Thank you so much. You're the best.
Claire: Also, um, there's something else that I might need a little bit of help with too.
Hattie: So here's what I'm thinking. [Banging] Hey! Pipe down back there. [Sighs] So here's what I'm thinking: In here, you keep your head down. And be respectful, you know? But not fearful. I'll take care of the rest. You'll be okay.
Hattie: Hmm. You seem a little confused.
Hope: No. No, not confused. Trying to figured out for the life of me why you're being so nice. You don't know me.
Hattie: I like you. Yeah, okay. The thing is, here's what I was thinking. You know, once we get out of here, I was thinking that maybe you would introduce me... to Mr. Roman. You know, and not now. No, no. Come on. Relax. I mean, you know, after I get my record clear and stuff. You know?
Hope: Now the truth comes out--so for that, you would need my help. Right?
Hattie: Come on. You're an ace cop, you know? I'm thinking maybe you-- you'd look at my paperwork, you know, and see if I missed something in there somewhere. And in exchange...
Hope: In exchange, you'll have my back in here.
Hattie: Yeah. Deal?
Hope: [Chuckles] Deal.
Hattie: Right. you're helping Theo with...
Claire: Mm-hmm. Well, it's actually kind of a secret for now. So this is more of like a heads up, 'cause I might need to do some undercover work.
Paul: Oh. Move over, Nancy drew.
Paul: Never mind.
Claire: Okay, well, anyway, I was hoping that if it does come to that, then, um, maybe my favorite uncle ever could lend me some of his high-tech spy gear?
Paul: I'm sorry, um, what project are we talking about exactly?
Claire: Well, is it okay if I just don't tell you? Like I said, it's just kind of like a secret for now.
Paul: Well, I get that, but Claire, I mean, these gadgets, they're not toys. I can't just loan them out to you.
Claire: Okay. Uh, yeah. No worries at all. I'll just figure something else out. Um, let's just focus on the baseball card for now. You're still down to help me with that, yeah?
Paul: Yeah, yeah, I'll, uh, I'll make a call right now. Give me a minute, okay?
Claire: Thank you. [Chuckles] Well... if you won't share your spy toys with me, uncle, then, um, I'll just get them another way. So I can help Theo.
Theo: All right, so, favorite color's green.
Theo: Favorite movie... I'm gonna say "21 jump street" even thought we both know it's "twilight." You're just too embarrassed to admit it.
Ciara: No, it's not.
Theo: Hey, Ciara? It's true.
Theo: All right, um, finally, favorite book. "Little women."
Ciara: Wow, that's crazy.
Ciara: I don't even need to be here. You know everything about me.
Theo: Well, I mean, I-- I should, I've known you pretty much since the beginning of time. I mean, you know everything about me too.
Ciara: I do.
Theo: All right, um, yeah, it looks like you're all set and running. I'm sure you will have no trouble finding Mr. Right.
Hope: This is Ciara.
Hattie: Yeah, whatever.
Hattie: Well. Aren't you just a sight for sore eyes.
Hattie: [Sighs] Stone dumb. Explain.
Rafe: Am I hallucinating?
Hope: It's a long story. But that was Hattie Adams.
Rafe: Rings a bell.
Rafe: She dangerous?
Hope: No, not that I know of. Definitely a bit strange, but... she's also the only person I can trust in here. So far. I was attacked earlier in here.
Rafe: Gonna get you the hell out of here.
Sheila: Someone needs to ice that bitch. And there ain't nothing Hattie Adams will be able to do to stop it.
Adrienne: It was a hard choice. But I know it was the right one. [Faints]
