Dario: Hey.

Abigail: What are you-- what are you doing here?

Dario: You know, I had business out this way, and I thought I'd stop by, see how you were doing.

Abigail: Stop by? It's a little... out of the way, isn't it? More than a little, actually.

Dario: I should've known that line wasn't gonna work on you.

Abigail: Yeah, you should've.

Dario: Okay, I'll be honest. Um... I didn't mean to say that I love you. I just heard it coming out of my mouth. And I thought that... maybe we could talk about it.

Jennifer: I talked to Abigail.

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Jennifer: She is feeling so great, and her blood work came back normal.

Hope: Thank God.

Jennifer: I know. I'm gonna see her after I leave here.

Hope: Oh, please send her my love.

Jennifer: I will.

Hope: Hey, how's Eric doing at the Horton center?

Jennifer: He's doing beautifully. He has an amazing gift to just talk to people and talk them through their troubles. I wish that he was as understanding with himself.

Hope: Yeah, me too. Hey, did, um-- did he mention to you that while I was staying with him, I found a photo of you?

Jennifer: No.

Hope: When I asked him about it, he... told me about your relationship.

Jennifer: Yeah, well, before he was sentenced, we... we were just looking for a way to comfort each other. But unfortunately, we were also comforting ourselves with alcohol and pain meds.

Hope: Cuz... you're both clean now. Who knows? Maybe the feeling's still there.

Jennifer: Maybe. I...

Hope: You're both alone.

Jennifer: Yeah. But I don't think Eric is ready to stop being alone. I don't think he ever will be.

Roman: Hey, hey.

Eric: Dad, nice surprise.

Roman: [Laughs] Well, I, uh, got your text that you wanted to see me, and, uh, since you got a job and I'm my own boss now, I, uh, thought I would come to you.

Eric: Well, I have a favor to ask.

Roman: Name it.

Eric: You let Jennifer and I have a fund-raiser for this place at the pub.

Roman: You tell me what and when, I'll make it happen.

Eric: Great.

Roman: All right. You know what? It is good to see you enthusiastic about something again. Kind of makes my day. All right. How's the job going?

Eric: I got through to a runaway girl yesterday. Felt good.

Roman: That is good. You know, Jennifer knew what you needed, and she wasn't gonna take no for an answer, so face it, son. That woman is good for you.

Eric: [Chuckles softly]

Chloe: Hey, Eddie. Did you find Nicole and my baby?

Eduardo: Uh, not yet, but my contacts, they have her trail. They're gonna-- they're gonna get her. They're gonna have your baby back to you in no time.

Chloe: Oh, thank you.

Eduardo: Okay, let me guess. You just did that because Kate-- Kate walked in.

Chloe: You guessed right.

[Holly crying]

Nicole: Okay, sweetheart. You're dry. You're fed. You gave me a nice big burp. Yes. And Hillary doesn't suspect a thing. I know she doesn't. We are fine here. Yes, we are.

[Doorknob rattling]

Nicole: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Whoever it is, go away! I'm right behind the door, and I have a gun.

Brady: Honey, it's me. I forgot my keys. It's freezing out here.

Nicole: Oh, hey, Brady, thank God it's you. Hi. Hi! Oh, Tate!

Brady: Yeah. Do you mind if we come in?

Nicole: Well, why did-- why--why did you bring him here?

Brady: Why'd I bring him? Because he's my son, and where he goes, I go. And we're here to stay.

Abigail: I don't think that we really have anything to talk about. I mean, I don't--I don't really know why you think that you're in love with me.

Dario: Oh, I don't think. I know.

Abigail: And I'm in love with my husband, who isn't here right now, so I think--

Dario: I know that too.

Abigail: Are you watching me?

Dario: No, no, no. I waited outside until I was sure he was gone. You know, I don't know what you've told him about me, but he and I don't really like each other.

Abigail: I didn't tell him what you said. But only because I think that it would make a bad situation much worse.

Dario: You're right about that. So can we talk?

Abigail: Dario, I don't--

Dario: Look... I'm not here to put the moves on you, okay? It's--it's just, what I said is out there, and I can't stop thinking about it. And I just don't want things to be weird between us.

[Dramatic music]

Abigail: [Sighs]

Eduardo: Okay, uh, you do recall that I'm helping Chloe find her baby.

Kate: And I see that she's thanking you for your services in the only currency she understands.

Chloe: It's not like that. I got carried away. Eddie found a lead on holly, and it's the first hope that I've had.

Kate: Really? I was so hoping that you would see through her tactics.

Eduardo: I see through a lot. Pretty good at that, actually. Why are you here?

Kate: I came here to urge you not to take on Deimos all on your own. Tangling with Deimos is probably more risky than dealing with this one. Although I'm not sure about that.

Chloe: Well, at least I've never tried to poison anyone like you did to me.

Kate: What a nicer place the world would be if I had succeeded.

Brady: She asleep?

Nicole: Yeah.

Brady: He is too. He was exhausted after that trip. I'm gonna get, uh, some stuff I left in the car, okay?

Nicole: No, no, no, no, no, not--not yet. Brady, you can't just move here because I freaked out about Hillary being a cop.

Brady: It was more than a freak-out. You were ready to run again, weren't you? Weren't you?

Nicole: Well, I didn't, okay? You can't rearrange your life for me.

Brady: Of course not. I can't do that. I have a kid to think about.

Nicole: Exactly. And you owe me nothing.

Brady: I-- I'm not doing this because I feel beholden or because I think you're gonna blow it, Nic. I'm here-- I'm here 'cause I want to be here. Oh, boy.

Nicole: Look, I... I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you. But I'm out of the country now, okay, and I have plenty of money, thanks to you again. But you can't take Tate away from the only family that he's ever known.

Brady: I-I-- I am his family. I'm his family. His mother made sure of that. I want more for him than just that. The two of us, we could be-- we could be really good for him and holly.

Nicole: And what about you? You're just gonna live under an assumed name with me and our kids? That's not enough for you.

Brady: Why don't-- why don't you let me decide what's enough for me?

Nicole: You're not gonna miss titan?

Brady: No. I mean, screw titan. Nic, I can--I can get a job anywhere. I can run a business from anywhere.

Nicole: Yeah? You gonna start a chemical engineering business?

Brady: That's right, I'm a chemical engineer. Yeah, I could-- why did I pick that for a job? I don't know why I did that.

Nicole: Don't change-- don't even change the subject.

Brady: All right, here's the subject. I think we could make a life here, a really nice one here. That cover story that you told Hillary the other day sounded good to me. Why don't we do it? Let's be a family. Let's be a real family.

[Soft music]

Abigail: Fine.

Dario: Thank God.

Abigail: How's Gabi doing?

Dario: She's doing a lot better.

Abigail: Good. I think you should just say whatever it is you want to say, 'cause Chad's gonna be home anytime.

Dario: Okay. Okay. I get that you want your marriage to work.

Abigail: It is working. It I--it is! I mean, Chad only turned to Gabi when he thought that I was dead. But now they're just trying to do the right thing. We're all just trying to do the right thing.

Dario: I'm not here to slam the guy. I mean, I'm not a big fan, but... I get that you love him...

Abigail: Mm-hmm.

Dario: Not me. The thing is, is before I shot off my big mouth, I felt you and I were friends. And I don't have many of those in my life. I don't want to lose you as a friend too.

Abigail: You won't.

Dario: You just saying that to get rid of me?

Abigail: No. No, Dario, you-- you were there for me during some very bad times, and I will never forget that.

Dario: I'm glad I could be there when you needed somebody. And I want to keep being that guy. So could we maybe just forget that I said I love you?

Eduardo: Can you... give us a minute, please?

Chloe: Sure, as long as you promise you'll be here when I get back.

Eduardo: You want to sit?

Kate: I can't believe that you don't see how ridiculous this is.

Eduardo: What, it's ridiculous that someone else likes being around me, that-- what, I'm supposed to apologize for that? You know there's nothing serious going on between Chloe and me.

Kate: No. You've just committed to solving all of her problems.

Eduardo: She has one very serious problem that I've-- I've committed to--to--to-- damn it. I want you. I'm on record. I'm on record as saying so. I'm--I'm ready, willing, and able to make a commitment to you. You don't want to reciprocate, hey, that's your right. But you can't push me away and then tell me who I can and cannot spend my--my time with. It--it does not work that way.

Roman: What do you mean, you can't come over? Arnie, what the hell-- how do I run a restaurant with a sink that won't drain? [Tapping on desk]

Eric: [Snaps fingers]

Roman: Uh, hang on.

Eric: Dad, have you forgotten my skills as a plumber?

Roman: You don't have time.

Eric: I'll make time.

Roman: Arnie, you know what? Forget I called. All right. Why don't you and Jennifer come over to the pub tonight? We'll have dinner and start making plans.

Eric: Dad, Jennifer is my boss, and that's it.

Roman: [Laughing] Okay. You can't have dinner with the woman?

Eric: Listen, I'm not really into having a social life.

Roman: Eric, everybody needs friends.

Eric: No, I tend to be hard on making friends, so I try to avoid it the best I can.

Roman: Well, I hate to hear you talk like that.

Eric: Well, dad, I'm fine, really.

Roman: All right, well, then, uh, tell me this. If you don't have friends, who made these muffins?

Eric: Uh, that runaway girl. She really makes the most out of my kitchen.

Roman: Well, you know, taking a kid off the street, that's got to make you feel good about yourself.

Eric: [Chuckles] Well, I don't do it because of that. I do it because I believe in service. And also, it gives me a reason to wake up every morning.

Roman: Well, you know what, Eric? That's a start.

Jennifer: Eric is a good man. I've always known that.

Hope: You two could be good for each other, you know.

Jennifer: Well, he doesn't think that he deserves happiness or love. But I need to go. Abigail's waiting for me. I love you.

Hope: I love you.

Jennifer: To the moon and back.

Hope: To the moon and back.

Jennifer: Bye.

Hope: Mwah.

Jennifer: Thank you for listening.

Hope: You don't have to ever thank me.

Jennifer: Bye.

Hope: Love you, cuz.

Jennifer: Love you.

[Soft music]

Nicole: Uh, you--you-- you just make it sound so-- so easy.

Brady: Well, what's hard about it?

Nicole: Well, you act like we can just plant roots here and fool Hillary permanently.

Brady: Well, we can. We can. We're a young couple. We have a bunch of kids. What's suspicious about that?

Nicole: What, and Deimos and Chloe and the cops are just gonna stop looking for us?

Brady: Yeah, eventually, they will.

Nicole: No, she is never gonna stop looking. This is gonna be a life on the run. Is that how you want your son to live-- one step ahead of the cops?

Brady: No, it doesn't have to be a life on the run, Nicole. I have resources. I can make-- I can--I can put us here permanently, easily.

Nicole: No. No, Brady, it is not gonna work. As soon as Tate wakes up, you have to go.

Brady: I don't want to go. What, you want me to go back there to Salem? That's a town that I don't want my son in right now, Nic. Deimos is out of control, by the way. And the--the family war that's going on over there, it's getting worse every day.

Nicole: Well, your family needs you there, okay? You need to go back to Salem. You shouldn't be here with me, helping me clean up my mistakes by taking her on the run.

Brady: I want to be-- I want--I want to be here. Trust me, I'm where--

Nicole: No, why? Why?

Brady: Because I want to be with you. I love you.

Chloe: I was just worried that when Kate started saying all those things about me that you wouldn't want to help me anymore.

Eduardo: Well... I'm just sorry that you had to observe all that bad energy.

[Cell phone rings]

Chloe: I'm used to it. Excuse me. Oh, it's my mom.

Eduardo: You want a frozen yogurt or something?

Chloe: That would be great. Thanks.

Eduardo: Okay.

Chloe: Hi, mom. Parker, did you call me yourself?

Eduardo: Whoa. You run into a door?

Deimos: Just keep walking.

Eduardo: Hey, hey, hey. Chad got you, didn't he? That's not a surprise, after what you did to his wife and my daughter. Got to say, though, what I'm gonna do to you is gonna hurt deeper and last longer.

Deimos: You really think I'm afraid of you?

Eduardo: You should be.

Deimos: Don't make me laugh. You can join forces with Chad and André and I'll still end up on top.

Eduardo: And you can keep dreaming. But you tried to take my youngest child away from me. And I am going to punish you for that. You won't even see it coming.

[Tense music]

Nicole: You... you love me?

Brady: Surprised me as much as it does you, I'm sure.

Nicole: Well, I, um-- I love you too, of course. I mean, you're the best friend that I've ever had.

Brady: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. That's--that's what I thought it was too, you know, the love between two dear friends. But...something funny happened. I went back home, and, uh, people saw the look on my face when I talked about you, and they all wondered if I was in love with you.

Nicole: Well, maybe they just...needed a reason, you know, as to why you-- you would go out on a limb for someone like me.

Brady: No, we--we-- we have both had our fair share of screwups, Nic. But, uh, we're not those people anymore.

Nicole: [Laughs] Yeah, maybe you aren't. But, Brady, three months ago, I agreed to marry Deimos. I am still screwing up my life, and you are still there, helping me get out of my mess. And maybe-- maybe that's why you think you're in love with me. But it's not real.

Brady: Trust me, no. I know what real love feels like.

Nicole: 'Cause you had it with Theresa. And you're not over her.

Brady: Theresa showed me who she was. She had me convinced that she had changed. And when she hadn't changed, it threw me for a loop. My hope is that she someday has a wonderful relationship with her son, but trust me, between she and I, we are done. It's over.

Nicole: I know how much you want a mother for Tate.

Brady: I do. But this is about you and I. You know, we were more than friends before. You know that.

Nicole: We were friends with benefits. But great sex isn't enough.

Brady: Yeah, but it's-- it's nice.

Nicole: [Laughs softly]

Brady: Hey, I know. That's not what it's all about. Back then, we didn't give ourselves a chance. We didn't give ourselves a fair shot, and I'm pretty sure now, in these circumstances, we have a shot. You, me, holly, and Tate. I just think we can make it happen. What do you say?

Abigail: I... I wish that we could go back to the way things were, but I think that too much has changed. Um... you know, and I can't pretend like I don't know how you feel about me.

Dario: Oh, I'll make it easy for you. I'll treat you like one of the boys.

Abigail: No, it's not just that. Um...Chad and I are being very careful right now because we want our marriage to work, and so he's gonna stay away from Gabi, and I don't really feel like I can ask him to do that and then go hang out with you. It's just... I mean, do you understand?

Dario: I hope-- I hope Chad appreciates what it's like being married to a woman like you. I'm--I'm not sure he really does.

Abigail: I don't think you're being fair to him.

Dario: And you're seeing what you want to see. But if your wish is that I keep my distance from you, then I will. But if he ever hurts you... you know where to find me. And I--I hope, for your sake, he never does. But if he does hurt you... I will show you what love really means.

Jennifer: Honey, I am so sorry I'm late. Am I interrupting something?

[Dramatic music]

Abigail: Oh, you didn't-- you didn't interrupt anything, mom.

Dario: Yeah. Hey, I was--I was just leaving. I wanted to see for myself that Abigail was okay.

Jennifer: Good. Well, uh, I-- I'm grateful for what you did. If you hadn't rescued your sister and Abigail so quickly--

Abigail: But you did, and we're fine. So thank you for everything.

Dario: De nada, señora.

[Soft dramatic music]

Jennifer: He seems to care quite a bit for you.

Abigail: Worse than that. He told me-- he told me he loves me.

Jennifer: What?

Abigail: I know, but I told him there's no hope, that...I love Chad.

Jennifer: Yes, and that's good that you made that clear. I know you and Chad are gonna work things out. You put all the awful things behind you. You don't need Dario to make a new problem for you.

Abigail: And he said he wanted to still be friends, but I said I didn't think it was a good idea.

Jennifer: That's the right thing to do.

Abigail: I know. But still, he was my rock for so long. I'm--I'm really gonna miss him.

Nicole: Brady, all I can think about is taking care of holly and how terrified I am of losing her. And this--this-- this all seems so sudden.

Brady: I thought so too, until I finally made a realization that it's not. Finding out that holly was yours, standing by you when Chloe didn't want you to see her, and then supporting you through all this-- you know what, Nicole? You know what I found out? It all just seems right to me.

Nicole: And it means so much to me to have you here with-- with me. But I don't--I don't think that's love.

Brady: Are you sure about that?

Nicole: I don't know.

Brady: There's only one way to find out, isn't there?

[Tender music]

[Soft music]

Hope: Don't like the coffee at the Kiriakis mansion?

Deimos: I just had to get out of there.

Hope: I take it the other guy looks worse.

Deimos: It's no big deal.

Hope: You should probably have that looked at.

Deimos: Like I said, it's no big deal. Have a good day, detective.

[Tender music]

Brady: Time sure hasn't changed how good it feels to kiss you.

Nicole: Brady, you are so gorgeous. It's made our friendship pretty complicated.

Brady: Why don't we just simplify it, then?

Nicole: Because the only relationship I can focus on right now is--is holly. And I'm a mom first.

Brady: Hey, I know you're a mom. I love that you're a mom. Guess what. I'm a dad.

Nicole: [Chuckles]

Brady: I understand it. I remember the first time I looked into Tate's eyes, and I knew that life would never be the same. I know that feeling.

Nicole: That's it.

Brady: But that's what brings us together. We both have a child that we never thought we'd have. We both have a child that we love more than anyone in this world. And all I want to do is be together-- you, me, holly, and Tate. Just--I want to protect you. I want to keep you safe. I want to be here for you.

Nicole: Maybe... maybe you do love me. But, Brady, what if-- what if I'm not ready to love you back?

Brady: It's okay. I can be patient.

Nicole: Oh.

Brady: No, I-- hey, I can be a patient man.

Nicole: [Laughs softly]

Brady: I'm pretty confident that I'll be able to change your mind about me anyway.

Nicole: Oh, really?

Brady: Oh, really.

Nicole: Okay.

Brady: Yeah. Hey, I'm not gonna push.

Nicole: Good. Because, Brady, there... may be a chance I will never feel the way you want me to feel.

Brady: I have a pretty good belief that if you let your guard down and you open up that beautiful heart of yours, I think it might just happen.

Jennifer: Roman? Are you here?

Eric: Hi.

Jennifer: Hi! What are you doing here?

Eric: Well, I'm-- I'm trying to repair the clog in this bar sink. You?

Jennifer: Oh, uh, roman texted me and told me to meet him here so we could talk about the fund-raiser.

Eric: Oh, don't worry. It's ours. Uh...

Jennifer: Great.

Eric: Yeah.

Jennifer: Okay, well, um, I'll let you get to it.

Eric: Oh, no, no. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Don't go. I need you.

Jennifer: Okay, it says here to make sure the seal is tight before you turn the taps on.

Eric: Okay, wish me luck.

Jennifer: Good luck.

[Tap squeaking]

Jennifer: Any leaks?

Eric: Nope. We're in business.

Jennifer: [Gasps] You did it!

Eric: Now, we did it. Thank you.

Jennifer: A casual observer would say we make a very good team.

Eric: True.

Jennifer: Okay, well, I'm gonna get back to the office and head out.

Eric: Wait, wait, wait. You know what? It's almost lunchtime. Um... and we need to talk about the fund-raiser, right?

Jennifer: Oh, yeah. Okay, so I could grab some sandwiches, and then you could just meet me at the office.

Eric: Or we could meet at a cafe in the square. I'd change clothes, of course.

Jennifer: Oh. Well, that would be really nice.

Eric: Say an hour?

Jennifer: If you're sure.

Eric: I'm not sure about much these days. But I am able to arrange a table in the square with you. I'd say it's a pretty bold move.

Jennifer: And you're feeling very bold. That is awesome.

Eric: Yes.

Jennifer: Okay, I will see you then.

[Soft music]

Eduardo: You kind of enjoy getting under Kate's skin, don't you?

Chloe: Well, someday when you have a ton of free time, I'll tell you all the things that she's done to me. Honestly, I don't-- I don't know why you want to waste your time on such A... sweet lady.

Eduardo: Well, you know, I know that she-- she can be tough. She likes to lead with that edge. But she's... an extraordinary person.

Chloe: If you say so.

Eduardo: I do.

Chloe: And you're right. It doesn't exactly depress me to make her crazy.

Eduardo: The plan is not exactly working quite yet, though. It's not like she sees us together and is jumping into my arms or anything.

Chloe: [Chuckles] Well, I don't know. If the plan to make Kate jealous isn't working and it's not really changing anything-- and you know I just want my baby back-- then I don't know. Is there any point in us pretending that we're a thing?

Deimos: Hmm. Uh, no. I'm gonna have to, um-- I'm gonna have to postpone our meeting. I had an unfortunate run-in with one of Chad DiMera's men. Left me with a few bruises. No, no, not now. Way too many eyes watching the organization. But don't worry. I'm gonna find a way to make that little punk pay.

[Suspenseful music]

[Cell phone rings]

Dario: Yeah, what do you got? Really? That far north? Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, that sounds like a description of Nicole. You got anything else? Oh, that's a game changer. Yeah, yeah, I better go tell my dad. Yeah, great work. All right.

Nicole: You seem pretty sure of yourself there, mister.

Brady: I'm just, uh, confident, that's all.

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

Brady: It took me a while to recognize how I feel about you, so I understand if it takes you some time.

Nicole: Brady, it's just that we've been through so much together, and friends just seems to work out better than all the other stuff.

Brady: Yeah, no, in certain circumstances. But this is-- this is different. It's a whole new set of circumstances. I have to tell you, I think about us together with the kids and you and I, and I swear to God, I get excited about it. It sounds-- sounds terrific to me. I just--I think you have to give it a chance. Even if it took, you know, moving to Canada with the kids to make this happen, hey.

[Both laugh]

Nicole: That doesn't-- this all doesn't bother you?

Brady: No. To me, it feels like it was meant to be.

[Soft music]

Nicole: Is this you talking? Or is this Daniel's heart?

Jennifer: Lipstick.

[Cell phone chimes] Oh! Oh. Okay. Be there soon. Have to make one stop first.

[Soft music]

[Cell phone chimes]

Abigail: Hope!

Hope: Hey, where's Chad? I need to talk to him.

Abigail: He's not here right now. What's wrong?

Hope: Your husband had Deimos beaten up.

Abigail: What? Oh, my God, so, I mean, what's Deimos gonna do now?

Hope: Abigail, this war between the three families, it has got to stop, or someone is gonna end up dead.

Eduardo: You know, I may be making more headway with Kate than I realize, so... it probably wouldn't hurt for us to keep up the pretense of romance for a little longer.

Chloe: Okay.

Eduardo: Hey, what's going on?

Dario: Your guy at the border called me. He described a woman and a baby. I didn't see a picture yet, but it sounded a lot like Nicole.

Chloe: Did they cross into Canada?

Dario: Yeah. They weren't alone. They're traveling with some guy.

Eduardo: Did he give you a description?

Dario: Late 30s, medium build, brown hair, about 6 feet--

Chloe: Oh, my God. It has to be Brady. I can't believe that he's helping her.

Brady: Maybe Daniel's heart has given me a connection to you that wasn't there before. Is that so bad?

Nicole: Well, I know I can be a handful.

[Both chuckle]

Nicole: And no one knows me better than you.

Brady: I have Daniel's heart, but I have my own mind and I have my own soul. And I love you. I want to make a life with you and our children. And, Nicole, there is nothing that's gonna keep me from doing that.
