Kate: [Sighs] André. It's Kate. I'm about to meet Eduardo for lunch. Even though I'm doing this, I despise you for putting me in this situation. Eduardo is the best man who has come into my life for a long time. And I swear to God, if doing your bidding costs me this relationship...
André: Do I need to remind you that those chips are key to the worldwide tracking application I've developed? With them, our company stands to make billions. Without them, we go under.
Kate: There are other ways to retrieve the microchips.
André: Oh, I'm sure there are. [Chuckles] And if you think it's distasteful trying to retrieve those from Eduardo... you should see my methods in dealing with a thief.
Eduardo: So... how's it going?
Myron: I'm certain that once the task is completed, you'll have everything you need to eliminate DiMera as a competitor once and for all.
Eduardo: I had hoped the task would be completed by now.
Myron: I am aware of the urgency.
Eduardo: Good. Keep at it.
Deimos: Come on. [Chuckles]
Nicole: Wait, tell me again. Wait, why did we leave the bedroom?
Deimos: Sustenance, my darling. Sustenance for round two.
Nicole: You need to brush up on your arithmetic, sir. We just finished round two.
Deimos: Hmm. Even more reason to raid the fridge.
Nicole: Have I told you how much I love you today?
Deimos: You know something? You only told me that once.
Nicole: Just once?
Nicole: What? I'm gonna have to fix that.
Nicole: I love you, Deimos Kiriakis.
Deimos: I cannot believe how lucky I am. I really don't deserve this.
Nicole: Don't say that. Of course you do. I wouldn't love you if you weren't worthy. You know I'm a very discriminating woman.
Deimos: [Chuckles] And it meant a lot more to me that you waited till you were sure.
Nicole: I am. I am absolutely sure.
Deimos: I'm gonna honor your love, Nicole. I promise you. And I am gonna make you happy. Happier than you've ever been in your life.
Nancy: Chloe? Please wake up. I need you. Holly needs you. Oh, God, sometimes I wish you'd never told me the truth. This whole situation's out of control. Chloe, honey, please wake up. Tell me what to do.
Deimos: All right. So what do you say? Uh, late breakfast, brunch, dirty martini? I'm sure it's 5:00 somewhere in the world.
Nicole: [Chuckles] Actually, can I take a rain check? I want to visit Chloe in the hospital, and maybe if I'm lucky, I'll see Holly too.
Deimos: Yeah, no, I understand--of course.
Nicole: You know, I keep offering to stay with Holly so Nancy can visit with Chloe, but she just won't take me up on it. I... I don't know. Sometimes I feel like Nancy's deliberately trying to keep Holly and me apart.
Deimos: You don't let anyone keep you from spending time with that little girl. You understand?
Nicole: Yeah, well... I don't know. Maybe I'm just being paranoid. I love you so much. I guarantee you are gonna get sick of hearing me say that.
Deimos: That's never gonna happen.
Nicole: All right, I'll call you from the hospital.
Nicole: Hi, Brady. I'm in a rush. I'm sorry. I will see you later.
Brady: I'll see you later.
Deimos: So how did your visit with the Salem inn go?
Brady: I dropped a swab of Holly's DNA off at the lab. They're gonna expedite the results. It's not gonna be long before we know once and for all whether Holly is Nicole and Daniel's child.
Eduardo: Oh, hey.
Eduardo: Where are you going in such a hurry?
Kate: I was tracking you, actually.
Eduardo: Why were you doing that?
Kate: I was wondering what was more important to you than me. I thought we had lunch, that lunch date.
Eduardo: Well, the lunch date I believe is starting right now, and in truth, nothing is more important to me than you.
Eduardo: Absolutely nothing.
Kate: Oh. You went all out. [Chuckles]
Eduardo: I'd say you're looking typically exquisite today.
Kate: Oh, thank you so much.
Eduardo: And not to put too fine a point on it... but I did have the chef fly some halibut in from nova Scotia.
Kate: Is there an ulterior motive there?
Eduardo: Well, you know, I might be trying to get on your good side.
Kate: I think that, um, you might be there.
Eduardo: Excellent. I like the view. What are you doing later, kid?
Kate: I think that depends.
[Cell phones ringing]
Kate: I'm not going--
Eduardo: I have to take this. So...forgive me. I'll be right back.
[Cell phone beeps]
Nancy: Chloe? This secret we're keeping is horrible. Nicole keeps pressuring me about this amazing connection that she and Holly share. And why wouldn't she? It's her own flesh and blood. It's taking all the willpower I have not to tell her the truth.
Nicole: There she is. [Chuckles] My sweet little angel.
Theo: What are you doing? We could be getting to the good stuff.
Claire: The good stuff? Theo, after listening to 12 hours of Valerie's day-to-day existence--ugh. You know, I think the highlight of that woman's life is listening to someone's heart through a stethoscope. Can we just, like, take a break and go see a movie or something?
Theo: Claire, this was your idea.
Claire: Yes, yes, I know, 'cause I wanted to help you. But, God, it's just a total snore. I mean, maybe I can take it home with me. I'm sure if I have any trouble sleeping, it'll just put me right out.
Theo: All right, well, if it's that boring, then maybe you could just leave. I'm gonna stay and I'm gonna listen to every single word, because I know that I'm gonna hear something that'll show me the type of person Valerie really is. Okay, and then I can finally prove to my dad that she's nothing more than a liar and a fake.
Claire: Theo, okay, look, I know you're a very detail-oriented kind of guy. But this much detail, it can drive a regular person crazy.
Deimos: Nicole already loves that baby so much.
Brady: We'll find out soon enough if it's hers. But I'm not gonna risk breaking her heart. I need to know. I need to be 100% sure that it's-- hey. Who would that be in there? You guys going to the park?
Yes, we are.
Brady: All right, buddy.
We'll be back in about an hour for his nap.
Brady: Okay, thank you. Enjoy yourselves. Have fun.
We will, won't we, pumpkin? See you all later.
Deimos: I thought Eve Donovan had taken over nanny duties.
Brady: She had. Tate's gonna miss her.
Deimos: Miss her? What are you talking about? She taking a break?
Brady: Yeah, she's taking a break. She left. She went back to New York.
Deimos: Really? Why is that?
Brady: Well, she had a couple reasons, but her number one reason was you.
Brady: Yeah, she referred to you as a... what did she call you? Oh, yeah, "Royal pain in the ass."
Deimos: Oh, come on.
Brady: Deimos, you treated her like a servant.
Deimos: She told you that?
Brady: Yeah, she did tell me that. Why wouldn't she tell me that?
Nicole: Uh, may I hold her? I know what the pediatrician said about germs, but this little peanut and I have been closer than two people could possibly be. Huh?
Nancy: Of course, you can hold her.
Nicole: Oh, my goodness. Yes. You are the prettiest little girl that I've ever seen. Yes. [Gasps] And those eyes. Yeah, they seem so familiar, huh? And why wouldn't they be, huh? I've been staring into your mama's eyes for years. You know, she's my bestie. Mm-hmm. And we're gonna be pals too. Yes, we are. And I'm gonna come visit you every day from now on.
Nancy: Uh, I'm afraid you can't do that, Nicole. You can't take care of the baby anymore.
Nicole: What? I don't understand.
Nancy: It's too stressful bringing her back and forth to the hospital, and my daughter needs me too. The doctor said if I spend more time with Chloe, talking to her, that she might come back to us sooner.
Nicole: But, Nancy, I told you I would help take care of Holly whenever you needed me to. Why haven't you called me?
Nancy: Because she-- she belongs with family, Nicole. I'm taking her to Chloe's place in Chicago so that she can be with her grandfather Craig and her brother, parker. At least until Chloe wakes up and can take care of Holly on her own. It's for the best.
Theo: So by "regular," did you mean "normal"?
Claire: Theo, I am-- I'm so sorry. That is not how I meant for that to come out at all. I mean, really, who in this crazy world is "normal," anyway? Look at our friends and our families. Like, take Ciara, you know? She cannot function unless she spends a half hour on the treadmill each morning. And then there's Joey, who has this ridiculous fear of going barefoot. Like, he even showers with flip-flops. And then there's me--look at me.
Theo: I am looking at you.
Claire: Theo, I'm the worst. I am addicted to social media, my own reflection, and I'm obsessed with hipster lingo. You know, I'm as close to being a millennial cliché as there is. [Sighs] Theo, I'm so sorry. Please forgive me. I completely adore you just the way you are. You know, and of course you're a genius with detail. One of us has to be. Thank God you're studying computer programming and will rule the silicon valley someday. Because all of your "normal" friends are going to need jobs.
Myron: Almost there, boss. Who the hell are you?
Kate: I'm Kate Roberts.
Eduardo: Kate? What are you doing here?
Kate: Well, looking for you, obviously.
Eduardo: Myron, uh... Will you give us some privacy?
Myron: Sure thing.
Eduardo: Yeah, yeah, so... what are you doing here, really?
Nancy: There's nothing to worry about, Nicole. All the arrangements have been made. Holly shouldn't be shuttled back and forth from the hotel to here. I mean, she needs the stability of a home. And she'll have that with parker and Craig.
Nicole: But what if it takes Chloe longer to come out of her coma? Do you really think carting Holly all the way back to Chicago is the right thing for her? I mean, she's just a little baby. She should be with her mother. Nancy, please. Don't take Holly out of Salem, okay? She will have a wonderful home, and you and Chloe could come visit anytime you want to, and then you can put all your energy into helping Chloe and you won't have to worry about Holly all the time. Please, I promise you I will take good care of her. I couldn't love her any more than if she were my own.
Nancy: Stop it! Just stop it right there. Nicole, there's no chance in hell you're getting your hands on this baby.
Deimos: I'm sorry. I don't buy it. I don't buy that eve left Salem and her nephew because she thought I was a--
Brady: A royal pain in the ass.
Deimos: All right, whatever she thinks of me, okay? It just doesn't make sense. There must've been another reason.
Brady: There was another reason. She teaches in new York, but that's besides the point. The point is, you need to learn how to play well with others.
Deimos: All right. Okay, fine. You made your point. And yes, okay, I acknowledge that it has been an adjustment, after all those years in prison. You know? Being with family. But I'm getting there. Okay? I'm--I'm working hard at nurturing relationships with people that I care about, my family. And honestly, I owe that to Nicole. I mean, she has been a wonderful example for me.
Brady: You're a very lucky guy.
Deimos: I know that, Brady. Believe me.
Theo: Did you just hear what I heard?
Claire: Yeah, play that back on speaker.
Valerie: Oh, sweetie, there's no one more important to me than you are. You're my favorite guy. Always and forever.
Theo: That's it. That's what we've been looking for.
Claire: Smoking gun.
Theo: I mean, why would she even pretend to like my dad when she's got some other man in her life? And that can't be her son. No one talks to their son like that. You know what? I knew it. I knew it. I knew it.
Jennifer: Valerie, hi. How are you?
Valerie: I'm good.
Jennifer: Oh, please, sit.
Valerie: Oh, sure.
Jennifer: Oh, it's really nice to see you. I have been wanting to tell you how much, um, we really enjoyed having you at our house for Christmas.
Valerie: Oh, my, it was so special for me. Thank you for having me. You know, I didn't get to mention that I so enjoyed reading your late husband's book. It was fascinating.
Jennifer: Thank you. He--he was a wonderful writer.
Valerie: I read a lot about him online, and you were very much a part of that, obviously.
Jennifer: Yeah. I've heard a lot about you and Abe lately. It seems, um, you're spending some time together, getting to know each other.
Valerie: Yeah... that's right.
Jennifer: Well, he's a good man. And I think he's been really lonely since he lost Lexie.
Valerie: Mm. He's been a very good friend to me.
Jennifer: Good. Listen, I'm just sitting here, taking a coffee break. Would you like to join me?
Valerie: I would like that very much. Thank you.
Nicole: Nancy, what is wrong with you? Why are you acting so hostile?
Nancy: Why are you being so rude?
Nicole: Rude? I'm not being rude. It's totally natural for me to feel a bond with Holly.
Nancy: Why? Why are you so attached to her?
Nicole: I thought you understood. I delivered her. I named her. Chloe is my best friend.
Nancy: I know. I know that. I'm--I'm sorry. I'm sorry for snapping at you. It's just... lately, my blood pressure's been so high, seeing her so helpless. I just took my anger and my frustration out on you, and I shouldn't have. [Sighs]
Nicole: It's okay, Nancy. We're both worried about Chloe. And we're tense and upset, but I just want to do everything I can to help.
Nancy: Nicole, I know you do, but... don't you understand? Chloe doesn't want the baby anywhere near Deimos. And I cannot go against her wishes.
Nicole: Of course not. Okay, well, you know, Chicago's not that far. I could drive there and I can help Craig with parker and Holly anytime he needs me.
Nancy: Okay, but we don't know what the baby's schedule is gonna be, so don't just drop in. Call first.
Nicole: Yeah, I would. Definitely. Can I... can I just hold her one more time, to... say good-bye?
Kate: Well, I thought you were... well, I thought maybe that you'd be taking your call back here.
Eduardo: No, I peeled off to the side room to take my call. Didn't you see me walking by there?
Kate: No, I-I didn't because I was looking at my messages because I was calling my assistant to tell them no further interruptions.
Kate: And I thought maybe you would like to do the same thing. That is, if you really meant it when you said you wanted to stay on my good side.
Eduardo: Well, I did. And therefore, I will. You know... somehow, I get the feeling that, uh... I really need to eat. So why don't we go and get back to our lunch?
Claire: Hey, Theo, wait. Okay. You don't want to go to your dad unless you are positively certain that your suspicions are true.
Theo: You're right.
Claire: Mm-hmm, right, so why don't we just fast-forward this and listen to the live stream and hear what Valerie's up to right now? I mean, maybe we can find out who that boyfriend of hers is. Could it be that Eli guy that she was texting?
Theo: Well, I don't know, but I do like your idea about listening to the live stream.
Claire: Mm-hmm. You're welcome. Now, uh, hit the button on the left.
Jennifer: I know that you lived in Salem years ago, and I remember you dated my cousin David.
Valerie: Yes, I did. At a time that was, um... controversial, to say the least.
Jennifer: Yeah, really, sadly. I mean, it's hard to believe now that people could be so ignorant and small-minded.
Valerie: It is. But thank God times have changed.
Jennifer: Yeah. Yeah, thank God. So what brought you back to Salem?
Valerie: Well, right now, I'm just filling in at the hospital. I work in the surgical division. I'm a heart specialist.
Jennifer: Oh, wow.
Jennifer: That's awesome. But you just talked about filling in. I mean, is there a chance maybe you would stay on?
Valerie: Oh, well, there is an offer on the table, but I'm just not sure I'm ready to make the move back yet.
Jennifer: Yeah, I understand.
Valerie: Speaking of which, I should get going.
Jennifer: Oh, okay.
Valerie: But, you know, Jennifer, I--we should do this again. I really enjoyed our talk.
Jennifer: I would really love that.
Valerie: Let me get your information.
Jennifer: Oh, okay.
Valerie: Wait. What is this?
Jennifer: Hmm, let me see. Um, well, I can tell you it's... it's a listening device. It's a bug.
Valerie: Yes. Yes, it is. And I'm pretty sure... I know exactly who planted it.
Claire: Oh, my God.
Mrs. Wesley? I need you to sign some treatment documents for your daughter.
Nancy: Yes, of course. Nicole, I'll be right back.
Nicole: Okay. Hi. [Chuckles]
Nicole: Okay. Oh. Holly. Breaks my heart. Breaks my heart to think that this is gonna be the last time that I hold you for a really long time. Oh, God. It can't happen. You know that, kiddo? It just can't.
Chloe: Aaah! I want to go home!
Nicole: I know you do, sweetheart, but you're doing great, okay? And when this is over, there's gonna be three of us in this room. It's gonna be a miracle. A new little person. And you will hold your own flesh and blood in your arms. Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
Chloe: [Gasping] Oh!
Nicole: Oh! It's okay.
Chloe: Oh, my God. Is he okay?
Nicole: Yeah. She is perfect.
Nicole: Oh, my gosh. Okay, you ready to meet your mama? Yes! Yeah.
Nicole: You will love her as I do. Yes. Oh, here she is.
Nicole: Oh! Oh, yes. Oh, she looks just like her mother.
Chloe: Yeah, she does.
Nicole: You were really brave through all of this.
Chloe: I couldn't have done any of it without you.
Nicole: Oh, my goodness, I was so scared. But I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Come on, Chloe. You need to come back to us. Yes. A mother needs to be with her child. Yes, she does, huh? Yeah. That's my girl. Come on.
Deimos: DNA results? Yeah, yeah, it's the proof we need. It's right here.
Deimos: What? What does it say?
Brady: It says the sample was compromised. The results are inconclusive.
Deimos: Damn it! How the hell could that happen?
Brady: I don't know. I don't know. I must've mishandled the swab or whatever.
Deimos: Nicole is at the hospital with Chloe. She thinks Nancy's gonna show up with the baby. I'm gonna head on over there, and I'm gonna get it right this time. We need to get the proof, no matter what the hell it takes. Gah! Look at us. We're rapidly losing credibility as handymen.
[Smooth dramatic music]
Eduardo: You know...this room, right over there, when I first laid eyes on you. Thought to myself, "that's a face I will never forget." Also thought... we'd never have a chance.
Kate: Why would you think that?
Eduardo: I have tremendous respect for the women to whom I was married--eve, Adriana. But this is different. You have... such power, Kate. You're incredibly compelling in your beauty, but... I mean, you're just so flipping brilliant too. You know, in business, you're... I've never seen anybody better. You can hold your own with anyone.
Kate: You're not threatened by that?
Eduardo: I'm not. I'm not. I'm inspired by it, actually. You make me want to be successful on a level I never imagined possible. And I will be. I'm gonna make you as proud to be seen with me as I am to be seen with you.
[Cell phone chirps]
Kate: My cell. I have--I have to go. I'm so sorry. Thank you so much for this.
Eduardo: Didn't you tell your assistant to hold your calls?
Kate: I... it's not business. It's Adrienne.
Kate: Yeah, she needs my help. So...
Eduardo: Sure, well, by all means, go and be with her. See, that's another thing. You have such a heart. So few people know it. I feel privileged to be one of 'em. Hey, you know what? Just one second. I'm gonna have the chef pack up some desserts for you two. Just one second, one second.
Theo: You lied. You told somebody that you were walking in central park?
Theo: No, no, no, central park is in new York city.
Abe: Theo, you shouldn't have been eavesdropping.
Theo: Dad, I wasn't eavesdropping. I just heard it.
Abe: I'm sure there is a reasonable explanation.
Valerie: Well, I'm not so sure how reasonable it is. I was talking to my department head in D.C. And, um... I hate to admit this, but Theo's right. I was lying to him. Hello, Theo. I know you're there. I know you planted this thing in my purse. So I know you're listening. We need to talk. Meet me at the pub.
Theo: So she's, uh--she's on her way over here.
Claire: God, you're kidding.
Theo: No. Um, you better get out of here. I'll take it from here.
Theo: Yeah, go, go, go, go. Get.
Nicole: You are the most beautiful little girl in the whole world. And I can't believe I'm not gonna see you every day. [Chuckles] Oh, gosh, I want to be there to see your first smile and to hear your first word. But I promise... I will be here every day to check on your mommy. And I will come visit you in Chicago. That is, if your grandma lets me. I don't know. She seems threatened that I feel so close to you. I guess she's just possessive of you. But I delivered you and I named you. And I'm entitled to feel a bond to you, right? [Sighs] Oh, my God.
Nancy: Nicole? I need to tell you something, sweetheart.
Eduardo: Oh, hey. Where'd you go?
Kate: Ladies' room.
Eduardo: Oh, I'm sorry I took so long.
Kate: No, that's okay. That's fine. Thank you so much. That's so sweet. I really have to go.
Eduardo: Yeah, yeah, I know. Please, uh... give Adrienne my best.
Eduardo: Oh, no. Kate. No!
Valerie: I appreciate your meeting me here. The two of us, we need to talk-- about why you planted this bug on me.
Theo: All right, let's talk-- about everything.
Nancy: I have to go. I'll be in touch, Nicole.
Deimos: Nancy, wait.
Nicole: Nancy. Nancy, don't run out like this! Nan--
Deimos: Nicole, I know how hard this is for you to say good-bye to Holly. But you're gonna see her again soon, okay?
Nicole: No, I won't. Nancy is taking her away, at least until Chloe comes out of her coma. She's taking Holly to Chloe's place in Chicago. Oh, yeah, she said I can visit, but I have to call first, which actually means I'm not welcome.
Deimos: Well, maybe she just needs some time, you know, to work things out.
Nicole: What? Did you see the way she ran out of here? Nancy is afraid that I've become too attached to Holly. And the awful truth is, she's right. I never got a chance to hold my two babies, and that's why I feel so strongly about Holly. And, I mean, I may never-- I may never see that sweet little angel again, and it's killing me. I just--
Deimos: Look at me. Look at me. You will, my love. I promise you. You will.
Nicole: [Crying] I hope so.
Deimos: Come here.
