Provided By SuzanneMargo: Mrs. Kiriakis?
Adrienne: Huh? Yeah, that's me.
Margo: I'm Nurse Margo. I'm sorry, we're running late.
Margo: Did someone come with you today?
Adrienne: Uh, no, I'm alone. But I'm fine. Thanks.
[Christmas carols play in background]
Nicole: Chloe, why do you look so surprised?
Chloe: What happened to you? You look like you were dragged under a bus.
Philip: Well, I sorta feel like that, too. Somebody kidnapped me.
Philip: Then they drugged me, and I don't remember the rest.
Chloe: What are you talking about? Did you call the police?
Philip: No, I just woke up and this guy said I could go. The next thing I know, I'm standing in the park, it's kinda cold--I remembered I was gonna meet you. I'm not even sure that it really happened. I think it was my uncle Deimos.
Philip: I don't know. Maybe not. [Exhales] My mind's blank. Whenever I try to remember anything, I get nothing but this--this--this feeling.
Chloe: What kind of feeling?
Philip: That maybe... Deimos knows you're carrying Daniel and Nicole's baby.
Nicole: Honey, what are you talking about? You knew I was coming.
Chloe: Uh... [Exhales] Yeah, I just didn't--I didn't know you were coming tonight and coming here.
Nicole: Well, I didn't wanna wait. Plus, with the snowstorm coming, I... I tracked you down. We need to talk.
Chloe: About what?
Nicole: You, the baby, us.
Philip: I know what you did, you son of a bitch!
Adrienne: Nurse Margo? I can't wait any longer. I have other appointments to attend to, so could we just reschedule this for after the holidays?
Kate: That's out of the question. You will stay, it won't be long. I'll make sure it won't be long. So what do you say we get my friend in there and get this show on the road?
Victor: Philip, stop it! Get your hands off of him!
Philip: Admit it! Damn it, tell your brother what you did, you sick son--okay. You won't tell him, I will. This guy...ha! Hired some lowlife thug off the street to drag me into a motel room and inject me with some drug. Now, I don't remember much, but I know it had to have been Deimos.
I don't know what the hell you're talking about!
Philip: Mm! And if you really believe that, father, after everything he pulled with you, me, and Maggie, then you're not just deluded by filial piety, or whatever the hell you wanna call it. You're out of your damn mind.
Chloe: So you wanna talk about me, the baby, us? Lotta talking--it's cold. We could be here all night.
Nicole: Mmm. Not if you say yes.
Chloe: To what?
Nicole: Come back to Salem with me tonight.
Chloe: Why would I do that?
Nicole: Why? Because it's Christmas, and you and parker should be with people who love you, like me and Maggie and Philip.
Chloe: Okay. Maggie doesn't love me. She loves parker and... you can cross Philip off the Chloe wish list, too. I told him I just wanted to be friends, and he admitted he wanted more and... [Sighs] So we decided to part ways.
Nicole: Chloe, you and Philip have been on and off again for years, and you always find your way back to each other.
Chloe: Yeah, but it's different this time. He said he was in love with me and he can't do the casual thing anymore and...you know, I just-- I can't do that to him. I can't string him along. I care about him too much. You know?
Nicole: Yeah. It's a shame...that you both can't...find a way to keep your friendship going. I'm sorry.
Chloe: Are you? Really?
Nicole: Yes! Why wouldn't I be?
Margo: I'll be back shortly to go over everything.
Kate: I'm not gonna let her out of my sight.
Kate: For what?
Adrienne: For coming here on such short notice... being strong for me... taking charge.
Kate: [Sighs] As I keep pointing out, you are plenty strong yourself. But what you are not is alone. You're not gonna go through a second of this treatment from now till it's over by yourself. I had to learn the hard way. Fighting cancer, well... takes a village.
Joey: I hope you're not thinking what I think you're thinking.
Jade: [Scoffs] Oh, yeah. Just a regular pistol-packing mama out to steal my baby an overpriced onesie. Figured you'd jump to the wrong conclusion.
Joey: Yeah, I'm sorry. Jade, I'm sorry. It's just...
Jade: It's just...you always think the worst of me. Joey, I'm gonna be a mom, okay? I'm not gonna get in trouble with the law anymore. Just... sad because I can't...afford to buy any gifts. What are you doing here anyway?
Joey: I was looking for you. You just got outta the hospital. I just wanted to make sure you're getting enough rest and enough to eat.
Jade: So you're saying you care?
Joey: Of course I care... you know, that--that you're taking good care of yourself.
Jade: Yeah. Because of the baby--not me. And of course it was a different story when you were trying to get into my pants, but now that I'm pregnant, all you wanna do is blame me for going off the pill.
Joey: Why are you being so touchy all of a sudden?
Jade: Just answer the question.
Joey: What question?
Jade: How do you feel about me?
Joey: Jade, please, can't I just--just check in on you without--
Jade: Without what? Getting all upset that you got me pregnant, and now you don't even care about me at all?
Joey: I didn't say that.
Jade: Last night when you were being so nice to me and we were looking at the sonogram together... what was that about? Why do you come around and pretend like you're worried about me and get my hopes up... when it would be better if you just stayed away and left me the hell alone!
Nicole: Of course I'm sorry about you and Philip. He's my friend, you're my friend, and I want you both to be okay.
Chloe: Fine, okay, that's very...good of you. Can we not talk about Philip anymore? So you said you wanted to talk about our relationship and the baby? What does that mean, exactly?
Nicole: Well... just that your... friendship means a lot to me, and I don't wanna lose it. Chloe, I wanna be there for you when the baby comes. And when I suggested that you and parker come back to Salem with me, I didn't mean just for the holidays. I want you to come back for good. It's where you belong. Maybe more now that you and Philip are over. Think about it. The baby's gonna be here in a few weeks. And who better than Maggie and me to look after parker while you're in labor? I mean it--I want you and parker to come back to Salem with me tonight, and we can send for the rest of your things later.
Chloe: Well, I will admit I've been pretty lonely lately.
Nicole: Of course you are. That's why you should be back home...in Salem. I want you to be happy. And I told you how important you are to me, Chloe. You're like family. You're like my sister. And you know who made me see that?
Chloe: I have a feeling I know. [Sighs] Which is why, no matter how sincere you're being and how good intentions you have, Nicole...it's never gonna work. Because of Deimos.
Philip: So that's how you're gonna play it-- stonewall and lie your way out of it like you always do. Well, everyone else may be taken in by your sudden conversion to family loyalty and good deeds, but not me. [Exhales] Oh! I am sick of the lies...
Philip: And the hypocrisy.
Deimos: Oh, really? You're gonna talk to me about lies?
Philip: You blackmailed me into spying on my own father. Damn near cost him a fatal heart attack. Not to mention single-handedly responsible for Maggie's paralysis using the antidote as a bargaining chip...to steal the company out from under him. That's not loyalty and love. That's ruthlessness and greed. Ugh! Everything you do is in your own self-interest. Even taking us into your home when the town was under siege-- 'scuse me, our home. And the only reason you did that was to keep tabs on Chloe. You would have done anything to take that baby from her when you thought it was yours. [Exhales] Thank...God she's not carrying your baby, because I would fear for anybody who had you as a father!
Philip: Well, for God sakes... are you just gonna stand there and let your brother get away with what he did to me? Or are you going to stand up for me?
Kate: You've been pushing people away ever since you were diagnosed. I mean, not that I don't understand. I did exactly the same thing. I did. I didn't want to seem needy. You know, I equated that with weakness. I wanted to handle the whole thing myself with dignity and stoicism. You know, I learned through experience. It isn't all about being...tough and strong. It's about feeling loved. Feeling supported.
Adrienne: I'm beginning to realize that.
Kate: I'm so glad. 'Cause that's going to get you through, more than anything. You know? If you can lean on someone who wants to be there to support you... I mean, for me, when I... when I finally allowed that to happen, I took so much comfort in it. And it comforted the people who were supporting me. I think... everyone strives to--to make a connection. You wanna help friends who are having troubled times, you know? Will you promise me that you'll think about that? That you'll let people help you?
Adrienne: I'm... I'm letting you help me, right?
Kate: Yes, you are. Grudgingly.
Adrienne: No. Not anymore. I really like having you here.
Kate: I like being here. So it's win-win.
Kate: I'll tell you what. I have been through most of this, um, so I should be a good source for you.
[Adrienne laughs, sniffles]
Kate: So any questions?
Adrienne: Actually, I do. Um...what am I gonna expect today? Dr. Davis went over it with me, but I was so distracted, it just...whoosh.
Kate: Okay...I understand. But the very first thing, you always have to take someone with you when you go to an appointment. Usually, they are--they're giving you a lot of information. So it really helps to have that extra pair of ears, you know?
Kate: And as for today, they're gonna hook you up to this saline drip over here. You know, it's to keep you from getting dehydrated. Then later they insert the chemo into the iv and...that's about it. You just have to...sit back and relax.
Adrienne: But I'm gonna get really sick from the chemo, right?
Kate: Not necessarily. The anti-nausea meds they have now, they mix it with the chemo. They're pretty effective. And as long as you have a really good diet, healthy diet, get good sleep, you might be fine.
Adrienne: But I'm gonna be even more fatigued, though, right?
Kate: Yeah. You are gonna be tired. Believe me, they haven't come up with anything to combat that. You will be, but aside from that, you can do everything you normally do-- go to lunch with friends, go out to dinner. Adrienne, you have to promise me that you won't...you won't think anymore that you're bothering people, all right? All those people that you text and you told them not to come here... do you know how disappointed they are that they can't help you? They all just wanted to be here for you.
Lucas: Some of us came anyway.
Lucas: Look, I didn't come with an agenda--I just couldn't stay away. What's she doing here? Is she upsetting you?
Lucas: What are you doing?
Adrienne: No, no, I actually asked her to come. She's been a great help.
Lucas: She has?
Lucas: Are you drugged?
Adrienne: No. I haven't even had aspirin.
Lucas: All right, I guess I'll...let you guys talk and I'll drop off the stuff, and I'll go.
Adrienne: P-please don't.
Kate: Adrienne, you know Lucas was with me through my whole ordeal. He was a real comfort to me.
Lucas: Yeah, when I wasn't annoying the hell out of you.
Kate: [Scoffs] You? Never.
Lucas: Well, I guess I do know the ropes.
Margo: Are you ready, Mrs. Kiriakis?
Adrienne: Yeah. Yes, I am.
Victor: And just how would I stand up for you? You'd like me to lash out against my brother for all the egregious crimes he's committed against you... when you haven't supplied me with one whit of proof to support any of it?
Philip: Oh, I get it. You think I made that up...huh? That I'm just trying to make trouble, 'cause that's what I live for.
Victor: I'm not accusing you of making anything up. I just want you to substantiate what you said!
Philip: You know what? Why do I even bother? What is the point of looking for proof when it won't make a damn bit of difference? This son of a bitch'll just slither his way out of it like he always does. I know what you did.
[Lightly tense music]
Philip: I know what you are. And I'm done. I'm done with you. I'm done with this whole family. I'm leaving Salem. There's nothing here for me... anymore.
Nicole: Chloe, I came to you in friendship. The last thing I wanna do is argue about Deimos.
Chloe: Don't you see? Deimos is the cause of everything that went wrong with our friendship. He's a bad person, Nicole. I mean, look what he did to his own family. I know you don't give a crap about victor, but I know that you love Maggie, and he was directly responsible for her paralysis.
Nicole: Yeah, and also her recovery. Doesn't he get a little credit for that?
Chloe: No! Not when he caused it in the first place.
Nicole: Okay, Chloe, listen to me. Deimos...is genuinely contrite. He has been working really hard at making amends with the people that he hurt, and guess what. Everyone's forgiven him except for you. Everyone has given him a second chance, which I believe everyone deserves. So, please, can you just stop being so hung up on ancient history and move on, and it's in the past?
Chloe: The hell it is! Not after what he just pulled.
Adrienne: What time is it? I mean...how much longer?
Kate: Well, um... looks to me like you probably have around an hour left. Oh! Forgot all about that. I have to cancel a dinner date.
Adrienne: Please don't cancel. Keep your date. I-I'm fine. I appreciate everything you've done, but Lucas is here.
Lucas: Yeah, I'm here. I'll make sure she gets home.
Adrienne: Actually, you don't have to do that. I drove myself.
Lucas: Actually, I'm gonna drive you home and sonny's gonna come get your car in the morning and make sure you get it. You get to relax tonight and take it easy.
Adrienne: Oh...I was planning on going out dancing and staying out till the wee hours, picking up a few guys, knocking back a few, a little karaoke...
Lucas: Joking I like. The guy part I'm not happy about. Maybe we could lose that.
Adrienne: Okay. Lose the guys...lose the guys.
Adrienne: Seriously...thank you for everything, Kate.
Kate: I'll call you tomorrow.
Lucas: Bye. So I was thinking tonight we can, uh, just lay low, maybe get some take-out, watch a movie. What do you say?
Santa: Um...okay to sit down? I'm on a break.
Jade: Oh. Santa, um... sure, if you want.
Santa: [Chuckles] Thanks. [Sighs] Ohh... [Exhales] Well, you're full of the Christmas spirit, aren't ya? [Chuckling]
Santa: Don't be. So...maybe you'd like to talk about it, gimme a chance to cheer you up? That is my job, you know. You're never too old to tell Santa your Christmas wish.
Jade: Sure. Why not?
Jade: I'll tell you exactly what I'm wishing for.
Nicole: Would you just stop already, okay? I don't want to hear it.
Chloe: You don't want to hear the truth?
Nicole: That's your version of the truth, Chloe. Okay, you know what, maybe we should stop discussing this because it's only upsetting you, and you need to be calm for the baby's sake. Please...can we just...agree to disagree about Deimos and talk about other things?
Chloe: He will hurt you, Nicole, I know he will.
Nicole: Ah-ah-ah--stop! As of right now, that topic is off-limits. And for the sake of keeping the peace between us, I am not going to try to convince you to come back to Salem with me tonight, okay? In fact, I want you to stay here, and I am gonna stay in Chicago with you for the rest of the day, and we are just gonna sit and visit with each other. Does that sound good?
Chloe: I would love that.
Nicole: Maybe we should get out of the cold, because I think it's gonna start to snow. Do you need something?
Chloe: Well, since there isn't a forklift nearby, I would appreciate some help to get out of this chair.
Nicole: [Laughs] Okay. I'll do my best.
[Beep beep beep beep]
Nicole: You see? You are so important to me, you know that?
Chloe: You're important to me. I love you, Nicole, and...I do want you to be happy.
Nicole: Back at ya, girlfriend. Come here. [Chuckles]
Victor: Look, I know you're upset with Deimos...and that Chloe has humiliated you yet again.
Philip: I never said I was humiliated.
Victor: Oh, no? That slut pushes you away when you offer to help her raise her bastard child...and you don't find that utterly humiliating?
Philip: You see? This is why I can't take it anymore.
Victor: Take what? The truth? Are you that thin-skinned?
Philip: Thin-skinned? What I am is sick of your insults, sick of you judging me.
Victor: Will you stop being a victim? Be a man! You have a career here. You have a family.
Philip: Not anymore.
Victor: All right, fine. Leave Salem. Don't turn your back on titan. Work remotely. Work out of one of our offices in Europe.
Philip: Don't you get it? I don't--I don't want any Titan job...
[Glass taps down]
Philip: Now or ever again. Deimos is in charge, and I will not work for a man like him. I'm gonna forge my own way in life from now on.
Victor: How positively brave of you. And how are you gonna earn a living? I'm not gonna support your forging.
Philip: I don't want you to. In fact, all I want from you from now on is to be left alone.
Victor: Philip, please. I'm not gonna try and make you change your mind. I know better. But don't leave like this.
Santa: So, what is your Christmas wish, my dear?
Jade: Well... it can't be bought or wrapped. You see, I'm pregnant. So a healthy baby is really on the top of my list.
Santa: Of course.
Jade: But...what I'm really wishing for... with all of my heart is for the father of my baby to love me.
Excuse me. Joey.
Joey: Hey. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have been... eavesdropping.
Jade: No, I'm the one who's sorry... that you heard me say any of that. Because I know it sounds like I'm pressuring you. Besides, all the wishing in the world isn't gonna make someone love you. They have to feel it themselves. So just forget what you heard, okay? It was a silly wish, and I'm sorry I ever made it.
Victor: I don't want you to leave in anger. We've come too far for that. And despite my protestations, I'll support your decision to leave Salem. I won't stand in your way. What I won't give up is the growth that you and I have had in coming closer together. We both worked so damn hard to achieve it. It's important to me.
Philip: I love you, dad.
Victor: I love you, too, son.
Philip: I'll be in touch. I promise.
Deimos: Hey, I'm happy to hear from you. I was starting to get a little worried. Remember what Brady said-- they're expecting a lot of snow in the Chicago area.
Nicole: Luckily, it hasn't started yet.
Deimos: So how's it going?
Nicole: Great. I will fill you in when I get back, but it's good. Chloe and I worked things out.
Deimos: Well, good. I'm happy to hear that.
Nicole: There is one little hiccup, though. Um...parker and Chloe are not gonna come back to Salem tonight. So I'm gonna stay here in Chicago for a few more hours with her. But I promise I will be home. I might just be late.
Deimos: Okay, sure. Just...drive carefully, all right?
Nicole: I will. And I promise I will text you as soon as I leave.
Deimos: Great. See you later.
Nicole: Okay. Bye.
Nicole: Hey. Chloe, what's wrong?
Adrienne: I appreciate the offer...but I'm not sure how I'm gonna be feeling later. I could be, you know, really tired.
Lucas: I understand. If you're tired, I'll just drop you off so you can get some rest. I just thought, you know...
Adrienne: [Softly] Right.
Lucas: You wanna take a nap now, close your eyes for a while?
Adrienne: Mm...I don't think I can--I'm pretty wound up.
Lucas: Wound up, huh? Cribbage, anyone? I'm due to beat you...
Lucas: So overdue.
Adrienne: Dream on there, buster. I just don't know right now, 'cause I'm not sure I can concentrate and truly beat you.
Lucas: Okay. I brought you some music. Got all your favorites in here. Josh Groban--you love that guy. Michael "Bubb-lay."
Lucas: What? You love that guy too. I got Ten Inch Nails in here.
Adrienne: How'd that get in there?
Lucas: It's not in here. Nine Inch Nails is not here.
Adrienne: Oh. [Laughing] You know you don't have to entertain me, babe.
Lucas: I don't wanna entertain you--I just wanna keep you company. Speaking of which...what did my mom say or do to make you want hers?
Adrienne: [Laughs] I know, it must seem kind of weird.
Lucas: A little, yeah.
Adrienne: A little...maybe out of left field. You know...it's not like we've ever gotten along... but the one thing that this experience has taught me... is that people can surprise you. Move you. They can show a side of themselves that you...never even knew was there.
Adrienne: Just for the record... I'm really happy you surprised me tonight too.
Kate: I am so sorry I'm late.
Eduardo: Oh, no, don't give it a second thought. I'm just happy that your son arrived so that, um... you didn't have to cancel. Otherwise, I... wouldn't have been able to... give you this.
Kate: [Laughs] Oh! Well... whoop, whoop... likewise.
Eduardo: Wow. Shall we?
Kate: I think we should rip them open.
Eduardo: Let's rip them open.
Kate: Oh! Wow! Well--
Eduardo: Mm-hmm. See, it starts over here...
Eduardo: Yeah. Comes around like this...
Kate: I see. [Giggling] Good?
Eduardo: That's good.
Kate: I think it's fabulous.
Eduardo: Especially on you.
Kate: Thank you. Well, mine's a little different choice. I was thinking about you staying warm and-- don't! Not the price tag! [Laughing] Warm and toasty through the long, very long.. cold... Salem winters.
Eduardo: Thank you. That's very thoughtful of you.
Kate: You think so?
Eduardo: I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.
Kate: Well, I want it to be warm.
Eduardo: Yeah, well, I think we could find a way... [Murmuring]
Kate: Hi, sweetheart.
Philip: Sorry to interrupt. I need to speak to my mom alone, if you don't mind.
Kate: Well, sweetie, what is it? Is everything okay?
Philip: It will be... as soon as I leave Salem.
Kate: Leave Salem?
Philip: Don't talk me out of it, mom. My mind's made up. And so I've come to say good-bye.
Victor: Congratulations on your poker face. You didn't have me fooled for a second. My son says he was kidnapped and drugged, and you were behind it all...I believe him.
Deimos: Given the circumstances, brother... I did what I thought was best.
Victor: And cost me a son in the process.
Deimos: Oh, I'm sure it's only temporary. He's hurting right now, going off to...lick his wounds. I have no doubt that he'll be back, stronger... and more committed to titan than ever. Minus the gold digger.
Victor: I must say I am very happy to have her out of his life. But if you pull a stunt like that with my son again, you'll answer to me.
Nicole: Come on, Chloe, what's wrong? Are you okay? Are you in labor?
Chloe: I-I don't know, but I'm pretty sure my water just broke.
Nicole: Oh, my God. Okay...
Nicole: All right, come on, I'm taking you to the hospital.
Santa: Not...that it's any of my business, young man, but... that young girl seems genuinely in love with you.
Kate: Well...you know how I feel about Chloe. But I'm not gonna tell you I told you so. I'm just sorry that she caused you so much pain.
Philip: Hey, I'll survive.
Kate: Yeah, I know you will. And I'm glad that you didn't go to work for Deimos, and I'm glad you stood up to your father, and I know that took a lot of guts. I just wish you didn't feel like you had to leave Salem.
Philip: I...don't see any other...way. Every corner I turn, I just see bad choices. Bottom line--I need a fresh start. Away from here.
Kate: Well, I'm gonna miss you...very much.
Philip: What? No trying to change my mind?
Kate: Nope. I know you don't believe this, but I have learned that it's not my place to tell my children how to run their lives. But my wish for you is to be happy. I love you so much, Philip.
Philip: I love you too, Mom.
Nicole: Oh...sorry this place is such a dump. I just didn't want to risk driving anymore. It's really coming down out there.
Chloe: Oh...yeah, this place looks closed. How did you learn to jimmy a lock like that?
Chloe: Ohh...okay, Nicole. I'm scared--I really think we should find the hospital.
Nicole: Yeah, but all the roads are blocked. We're gonna have to wait for them to be plowed, all right? So just...just calm down. You just need to rest.
Chloe: [Inhales] Ah...
Nicole: What? What is it, a contraction?
Chloe: Yeah. I thought I was having one in the car, but I wasn't sure, so I didn't say anything. But no-- oh...ah! Yeah, yeah, oh, God. I'm in labor. [Exhales]
Chloe: [Groans] Oh...
