Brady: Thanks for meeting me.
Chloe: Yeah, so what does Nicole want now?
Brady: She doesn't know I'm here. Just wanted the two of us to talk.
Chloe: Well, I don't really see the point. Nicole lost the case, and Holly's mine now. If you really care about what's best for Holly, I think you should get Nicole to change her mind about appealing.
Brady: Well, that's--that's never gonna happen, Chloe.
Chloe: Well, if you came here to change my mind, then that's never gonna happen. Holly is mine, and that's never gonna change.
Valerie: What do you mean, you're here to bury your father? You were a little boy when Terrence died.
Eli: Terrence wasn't my father. David banning was!
Julie: Valerie? We're about to start the service.
Julie: I'm sorry. I'm Julie Williams. And you are?
Chad: [Grunts] What a nice surprise.
Chad: Thought I'd be waking up to a needle-wielding nurse.
Abigail: [Chuckles] I decided I wanted to be here when you woke up.
Chad: I'm glad you came back. I don't think we really got to resolve things.
Abigail: I think we resolved things. I mean, you told me that you kissed Gabi, and I said... I understood. I'm actually really glad you told me, Chad. I don't want you to feel like you can't be honest with me. I'm a lot stronger than I look.
Chad: I know you are.
Abigail: [Laughs softly] In that case, I kind of wanted to ask you something. I know that you--you really meant it when you said that you were committed to our marriage.
Chad: I did.
Abigail: I also know that being trapped with Gabi has kind of brought up some old feelings.
And so I guess my question is whether you think that we can actually put that behind us.
Eli: Hi, Ms. Williams. I'm Eli Grant.
Valerie: Uh, this is my son, Julie. I didn't know he was coming.
Eli: You're David's mother, aren't you?
Eli: I'm so sorry for your loss.
Julie: Thank you.
Eli: Do you mind if I stay? [Stammering] I... I don't want to intrude on the family.
Julie: No, of course, please stay. I--I think it'll help your mother.
Eli: Thank you.
Julie: I'm sorry... you look so familiar to me. Have we met before?
Eli: I don't think so.
Julie: Well, we better be getting in. Lord God, give me strength.
Eli: She seems like a very nice person to me.
Valerie: Let's just sit down.
Chad: I, um--I know my feelings for Gabi are an issue, but I--I know I can--I can put it behind me, and I hope you can do the same.
Abigail: I know you guys were victims, and I know you want what's best for our family.
How you feeling?
Chad: Better. Doctor said I should be discharged later this afternoon.
Abigail: That's good. Thomas is gonna be glad to have you home. So am I.
Chad: It just feels so nice to be warm. Never gonna take central heating for granted again.
Abigail: [Chuckles] I'm never going to take peace for granted. Not after that pointless, stupid war.
Chad: Well, the battle might be over, but tensions are still high, so I need you to be careful, okay? Can't have you getting involved like you and Gabi did last time.
Abigail: Leave it to the menfolk, huh? May I remind you that it's the menfolk that kind of got us into this trouble in the first place? So, sorry, I'm not gonna just sit at home and knit while you guys go crazy again.
Chad: You know who you sound like?
Chad: You. Boop. The you that I fell in love with.
Abigail: Gosh, that seems so long ago. We've been through so much. I mean, I've--I've put you through so much.
Chad: Just want to move past it. We have a second chance. That's all I care about.
Abigail: Me, too.
Brady: There is nothing anyone can say or do that's gonna make Nicole stop fighting to raise her own child.
Chloe: Without Daniel's stable influence, she is...
Brady: Come on.
Chloe: Out of control!
Brady: Listen to me. Listen to me right now.
Chloe: No, listen--
Brady: No, you need--
Chloe: Listen to me. I know you find this hard to believe, but I feel sorry for Nicole. She brought this on herself. I told her time and time again what kind of man Deimos is. All she had to do was walk away.
Brady: I know, and guess what--she has. She dumped him. It's over. That's what I've been trying to tell you. So that man is no longer going to be an influence in Holly's life. So as a result, there's absolutely no reason for you to keep Nicole from her daughter now.
Julie: My son David. He was beautiful. He was whip-smart. He was...passionate. Fearless.
As a mother and son, we had a rocky relationship. I think that was because he must have inherited all my worst traits. He was brash. He always spoke his mind. He always thought his opinion was the only opinion that mattered. We loved each other. But we had a hard time getting along with each other.
The last few years... we hardly saw each other at all, and I... I regret that and always will.
I hope to God he knew how much I loved him. He was a shining light to me.
I thank God that light will continue to shine brightly in his son...my grandson, Scotty.
This morning I was getting ready for this, and I--I tried to remember all the things that we quarreled over--the things that were so important to me I could not let them go.
They were stupid. And I'm sorry. I wish... I wish instead I'd told him that I prayed for him all the days of his life.
And I know he's found his place now, in the house of the lord, forever.
Claire: I really wish I could have met David.
Claire: What did I say?
Ciara: It's not your fault. She's just feeling guilty.
Claire: It's just hard to imagine anyone not getting along with Julie. Especially her own kid, you know.
Ciara: Yeah. Who understands families?
Claire: Right. Listen, we're okay, aren't we?
Theo: You ready to go?
Claire: Mm-hmm. Yeah, uh, Theo and I are gonna go see Chad at the hospital. Do you want to come?
Ciara: Um, I think I should stay here, since my mom got sick and couldn't come.
Claire: I hope she feels better.
Claire: See you soon.
Theo: Call you later, okay?
[Quiet string music]
Abe: I've heard so much about you. Are you here to help your mom move back to D.C.?
Eli: Uh, no. Spur-of-the-moment type thing. A surprise.
Julie? I just wanted to say, what you said about you and David... you really did love each other. You did, and he knew it.
Julie: Thank you, sweetheart.
You have a fine-looking son. You treasure him. Family's everything.
Valerie: Oh, yeah.
Abigail: Brought you some clothes to wear home.
Chad: Well, actually, I think I'm only gonna wear hospital gowns from now on.
Chad: What's it, um-- what's it like outside?
Abigail: It is cold. Yeah, I know. But I did bring you a sweater and your winter coat.
Chad: You think of everything. 'Cause I--I'm not really looking forward to any more cold.
Abigail: Yeah, you know, I was thinking about that, and I wondered what you may think about going on a second honeymoon? With Thomas, of course.
Chad: Mmm, someplace warm, I hope?
Abigail: Yeah, someplace hot.
Chad: Ah, pfff, I'm on board.
Chad: Let's do it.
Abigail: Good, that's great, 'cause I got online last night, and I found a really great family-friendly resort. It's in Cancun.
Chad: Canc--well, uh, Gabi said, um--
Abigail: Chad, it's okay. She's my friend, all right? And I'm--it's not gonna drive me crazy if you tell me what she said.
Chad: Okay, she said that, uh, Cancun can be touristy, but if we want more of A... feel, you know, feel Mexico, then we go to Cozumel.
Abigail: Good to know. So how about we go home and light a fire, and I crank up the heat, and we just sit there and look online for a little place in the sun?
Chad: I'm--I'm in.
Abigail: Okay. No Salem, no warring families, no DiMera Enterprises, none of it. Just you and me and Thomas and a lot of sunshine. Just us. [Laughs softly] Good?
Chloe: Brady, how many times has Nicole dumped a guy before, and how long did it last? We both know how needy she is. She was never what you would call a rock in the first place. And since Daniel died, she's a total hot mess.
Brady: Mm, hot mess. Was she a mess... when she delivered your baby? How about when she practically saved your life? Was she a mess then?
Chloe: Okay, I see where you're going with this, and yes, she has been there for me. She always has been. But this isn't a question of whether she's a good friend. It's a question whether she's a good mother. Now, she dumped Deimos because he bribed a judge. Now, to him, that's, like, jay-walking. I mean, the man has poisoned people, crippled people, kidnapped people. Nicole knew all about that, and she was fine with it.
Brady: All right. Just--just talk to her. Talk to her, you'll realize that she dumped him, and it's over.
Chloe: Okay, well, then, who's next? Remember what happened with EJ? Seriously, she's the worst decision-maker of all time.
Brady: Really? Oh, really? Really? How about--how about like you? How about like me? Come on. What makes you think you can sit in judgment? I mean, you cannot guarantee that--that Holly's gonna be better off with you than with Nicole. You can't. And I'll tell you something: This is clearly not about Deimos, is it?
Chloe: You know what? You are not Marlena. Stop shrinking me.
Brady: Are you lonely? Are you lonely? Chloe, I am. Since Theresa left, I, um... I have my son, and that's... that's wonderful, but it's not enough. I mean, I have friends and I have family, but hell, I'M... it just feels--it feels to me like you're isolating everybody who cares about you, like Nicole, and like me. It doesn't have to be that way. Look at me. Chloe, let me--let me be here for you. You just have to let me in, okay? I love you so much, that's why I bought
Chad: Will you, um, go see what's going on with the discharge papers?
Abigail: Yeah, sure.
Chad: Claire, would you mind joining her? I got to...
Claire: Yeah, sure, no problem.
Chad: Have a seat. How you doing? Huh? A lot going on the last couple weeks.
Theo: Yeah, I'm glad you're okay.
Chad: Me, too.
Theo: I can't believe Nonno was alive this whole time.
Chad: I know.
Theo: You think we'll ever hear from him again?
Chad: I hope not.
Theo: [Laughs] What?
Chad: I know. I'm--I'm sorry. Look, I know how much you love him, but after everything he's put this family through... I mean, he let you think he's dead. That's not right.
Theo: I guess.
Chad: You know, I just--I think that our--our family finally deserves some peace. We need it.
Theo: Yeah, I want that, too.
Chad: Which is why I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but I'm gonna need you to be really careful, okay? Things with the Hernandez and the Kiriakis families are still really tense.
Theo: Well, Ciara's a Kiriakis, and she's my best friend.
Theo: Claire really is too. But uncle André said I shouldn't even see them.
Chad: Well, your uncle André is crazy.
[Both laugh] I'm not talking about Ciara and Claire. I'm talking about Deimos and Dario. I'm worried what they might do.
Theo: Right. Well, I'm glad I don't have to stop being friends with Ciara or Claire. You know, I really love them both. Not in the same way, though, 'cause that's-- that's ridiculous.
You can't love two girls the same, right?
Chad: I don't know.
Claire: It's just so weird. 'Cause the last time I saw Julie was at the wedding, and she was dancing and laughing... oh, hey, look. Theo got this for me at the wedding for valentine's day.
Abigail: Oh, it's gorgeous.
Claire: Mm-hmm. Yeah, it's, um...rose gold or gold rose or something. He said he wanted to get me flowers that would never die. He's sweet.
Abigail: He's pretty crazy about you, huh?
Abigail: What's the matter?
Claire: Nothing. I just get the feeling that somebody else is trying to make moves on him. And I don't like it.
Abigail: Yeah, um, I mean, nobody does, honey. But all you can really do is not worry about the other girl. Just got to make sure that Theo knows how much you love him.
Chloe: I don't understand why you are so involved in all of this.
Brady: Come on, Nicole's my friend. You know that.
Chloe: I thought I was your friend, too.
Brady: Of course, you're my friend, too.
Chloe: Well, I was your wife, too. And you always put Nicole first.
Chloe: Even all those years ago when she was chasing after you, trying to keep us apart.
Brady: But no one had to keep us apart, okay? We blew up all on our own. We did that.
Chloe: Oh, my God, that's right, Nicole is blameless, as usual. I--I don't get it. You always give her the benefit of the doubt. It's like you've got blinders on when it comes to her. Oh, my God, don't tell me you are falling for her again.
Abigail: Chad, he's--he's just getting over a cold.
Chad: I don't care.
Abigail: You're at high risk. What am I gonna do if you get pneumonia?
Chad: I don't--I don't care. I just--I want--
Abigail: Ugh, okay. I'm not gonna change your mind, am I?
Abigail: Stop, okay. All right, all right. I'll go get him. You need anything else?
Chad: No, once I have my son, it's...I'm good. I'll have everything.
Abigail: Be right back.
Valerie: How in god's name... why would you think David is your father?
Eli: When I applied to Quantico, the FBI wanted to know my whole life story. You know, and I realized that there was a lot that I didn't know, especially about my dad's side of the family.
Valerie: Because you were really young when Terrence died.
Eli: Something was off. Terrence wasn't my real father, and don't disrespect me and try to pretend otherwise.
Valerie: Okay, I won't.
Eli: I mean, at first, I wasn't suspicious. I was just curious. So I did one of those ancestry DNA tests to find out more about where I came from. It came back that I was a quarter English and a quarter Irish, and it wasn't "black Irish" either. Needless to say, that proved Terrence wasn't my father. So I used FBI resources to find out who was, because clearly, I couldn't trust you to be straight with me.
Valerie: Eli, Eli. I--I thought--I was trying--
Eli: I was waiting to have this conversation with you face to face.
Clearly, I waited too long. My father is dead. And it's because of you that I will never know him. So tell me, mom, why the hell did you lie to me all these years?
Brady: There's nothing between Nicole and me except friendship. She just dumped my... uncle, for God sakes. The only reason I'm involved in this mess is because Deimos confided in me.
Chloe: Well, Deimos has nothing to do with this baby.
Brady: It felt--felt personal to me because of what happened to my son. Theresa didn't give birth to Tate, but he is still our son, just like Holly is--is Nicole's daughter, Chloe.
Chloe: That's not what the judge said.
Brady: I can see I'm gonna have a hard time changing your mind.
Chloe: That's right.
Brady: All right, well, do me one favor. Don't go to Chicago, please. Give Maggie a chance to get to know her granddaughter.
Chloe: Actually, I'm not going to Chicago.
Brady: That's good. That's good.
Chloe: I am moving to new York. I need to find a steady singing gig, and there's a lot more venues there, so parker, Holly, and I are gonna move in with my mom and dad. And we're gonna leave tonight.
JJ: Have you decided to take roman's job offer?
Lani: I'm not sure yet.
JJ: You know, if you did, we can go to the movies some time.
Lani: I hate the movies. People talk too much, and the popcorn is just way too overpriced.
JJ: All right, then, we can go snowboarding.
Lani: JJ, I'm from Miami. The snow is not my friend.
JJ: Okay, well, then, maybe we can, uh--we could try that new Italian restaurant.
Lani: Mmm, no carbs.
JJ: Okay, Lani, look. You can just say no. I'm tough, you know. You're not gonna hurt my feelings.
Lani: Say no to what?
JJ: I'm trying to ask you out.
Brady: You can't do that. [Stammering] You can't take Holly and Parker to New York. It's cruel, Chloe. Where Nicole--where Maggie can't even see them?
Chloe: I need to support my own family.
Brady: You--[Stammering] I'll do it. Chloe, I'll--let me be here for you. Let me get you a place to live. I'll--I'll get a nanny for you, whatever you need.
Chloe: Really, now? No, it's... it's better this way. If Holly and I move to new York, then it'll be easier for Nicole to move on with her life.
Brady: How is Nicole supposed to move on with her life when she can't even see her daughter?
Chloe: She'll find a way. She always does.
Brady: Chloe, look at me. Come on, hey, don't do this. It's wrong; don't do it.
Chloe: You can't stop me. Bye, Brady. Look, I know you think that I am being heartless, but I really do care for Nicole, and I want her to be happy.
Valerie: David and I were in love. We were, and we were gonna get married. And then--and then things just didn't work out. David was afraid of commitment. And--and so--and so we just moved on. When I left Salem, we were on good terms. And then later, he came to see me while I was in D.C. And I thought finally, finally we could be together and make it last. It was just more of the same. And as soon as we got close, he took off. I didn't even know I was pregnant until after he'd gone.
Eli: Must've been awful.
Valerie: No. No, Eli, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. You are my best thing. Do you have any idea how much I love you?
Eli: No, I don't. Because if you love me as much as you say you do, you would've never kept me from knowing my father.
Valerie: [Weeping] Oh, baby.
Chad: Ah, he looks more and more like you every day.
Abigail: That's funny; I think he looks like you.
Abigail: I gave him some cranberry juice yesterday. He made the same face that you make when I order salmon. Yeah, that's it.
Chad: Just really happy to be home.
Abigail: Yeah. Missed you. Just kept thinking about all the plans that we had for the future, and you know, I thought, "God, they're gone. That's it. I'm never gonna see him again."
Chad: Here I am.
Chad: Plans and the dreams don't change. I love Thomas, and I love you.
Chloe: Thank you for meeting me, Maggie.
Maggie: I'm just glad you wanted to talk. I heard that--that the judge granted you custody.
Chloe: Yeah, I guess you're not gonna say congratulations.
Maggie: I just want what's best for my granddaughter.
Chloe: That's why I wanted you to hear it from me directly. I'm taking Holly and parker with me to live in new York... for good.
Maggie: [Sighs emotionally]
Lani: I had no idea you were interested in that way.
JJ: I know we got off to a really bad start in Miami.
Lani: You think?
JJ: We've been working together the past couple of weeks, and... I really do like you, Lani.
Lani: Well, I'm glad, considering we already had sex.
JJ: All right, well, maybe this isn't the traditional order of things, but... I'd like another chance for a do-over.
Lani: A date. Just a date. All right?
JJ: All right. How about tonight? If you're off carbs, maybe we can go out for sushi.
Lani: I love sushi. You know, that place on the river is always packed. Let me see if I can... damn.
Lani: My cell phone's not here. I must've dropped it back at the church.
JJ: Hope it's still there.
Lani: It better be. I will call you about tonight.
Valerie: I went back and forth about telling David about... my pregnancy. And then I thought to myself, I didn't want to do this to my child--have him feel the way I did--hurt and disappointed and let down and rejected. David couldn't commit, and there is no bigger commitment in the world than to a child.
Eli: But you didn't even give him a chance.
Valerie: He had already had a chance, and he failed miserably with his son Scotty. And then Terrence came into my life, and he accepted you as his own, and he was a good father to you, Eli.
Eli: But he wasn't my father. My whole life you have lied and lied to me. I knew you weren't in new York all this time. I knew you were here in Salem. You know, but I thought maybe, just maybe, you were trying to find a way to tell the Hortons that I existed. But obviously, that wasn't the case. You never wanted them to know about me.
Valerie: I just--I just didn't want your heart broken.
Eli: Well, it is now.
Valerie: Why--why didn't you say something to me sooner? Eli, you never even let on that anything was wrong.
Eli: I guess I learn how to lie from you, huh?
I had a right to know the truth, and so did my father and his family.
Valerie: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I'm really sorry. So are you gonna tell them?
Eli: What I do and what I don't do is none of your damn business.
Valerie: Baby... [Sobbing]
Abigail: Boy fell asleep as soon as I put him down. And now, it's your turn. Want me to bring you a sandwich?
Chad: No, I'm not hungry.
I meant what I said. I love you.
Abigail: I love you, too. I thought I lost you forever.
Chad: I'm right here.
Abigail: Are you sure?
Chad: I'm sure.
[Soft dramatic music]
Ciara: [Exhales sharply]
One more time, as long as this time I don't meet another Rory.
Theo: I wish Valerie wasn't leaving town.
Claire: Yeah, I never thought I'd hear you say that.
Theo: Well, my dad's really bummed out about it. You know, she seems pretty upset, too.
Claire: Yeah, wasn't she, like, in love with David? But that was a long time ago, though.
Theo: Well, I think it was more than that. She seemed really on edge. I wonder why.
Abe: Val? What happened? Is--is everything all right with Eli?
Valerie: I don't think he's ever gonna forgive me. [Weeping]
Eli: Sorry I never got to know you. And now I'll never have the chance.
Chloe: Now, this is not about me cutting you out of your grandchildren's lives at all. You can visit whenever you want.
Maggie: But you are cutting Nicole out.
Chloe: Okay, I don't want to have this conversation anymore. The judge ruled that I'm Holly's mother. And I just want to do what's best for her.
Maggie: Well, if there's-- if there's anything that either of my grandchildren need, just-- you just say the word.
Chloe: Okay, thank you. Now, uh, we really have to go.
Well, hello. Hello, hello.
Grandma has to say good-bye. Grandma loves you very much. You know that, don't you?
Oh, my. Oh.
Brady: Nicole, I need to talk to you about Chloe. Right away.
[St. Hollywood: "Because you're mine"]
Yeah, okay for once in my life I feel a little good thing inside looking in your eyes I only want to love you and hold you tight I feel fine because you're mine because you're mine, mine because you're mine because you're mine
