Justin: I don't understand. Deimos deposited more money into the Titan accounts? Where the Hell is it coming from? Yes, believe me, I will definitely look into it.
Kayla: You know, Joey needs a new comforter for his bed, so why don't we go to alderman's, 'cause they have that good selection, you know?
Steve: Okay, let's head over there.
Steve: Still with me?
Steve: You know, I've been thinking...maybe Tripp really is starting to come around. I mean, the way he stood up for Joe at the pub...
Kayla: Right. When they got in that fight.
Steve: Yeah, and then afterwards, it was weird. It was like something changed. Tripp was...actually kinda nice to me.
Kayla: [Chuckles] I'm happy for you.
Steve: [Laughs] I don't know. Maybe Joe finally got his brother to see what Ava was really like.
Tripp: You said you thought it was really Kayla who killed my mom. How sure are you?
Jade: Well, that's my hunch. It's a strong hunch, though, really strong. You're blaming the wrong person, Tripp. You gotta leave Steve alone. The one you should hate is Kayla.
Rafe: Apparently, it doesn't take much to fry your brain. Lani price went undercover to try to catch one of these halo dealers. Had to swallow some and... really did a number on her.
Jennifer: Did she get really violent?
Jennifer: I mean, because there was a kid at the center who busted out the whole front window of the antique store and then another kid who stole a car and ripped the insides of it completely apart.
Rafe: My god. No. Well, if these dealers are targeting kids in schools, their sentences are automatically doubled. The trick is catching them.
Jennifer: Well, that's why I'm here. I may have a lead for you.
Abigail: Oh, hey, Dario, hey. Thank you for coming. Um...I'm sorry. I shouldn't have called you.
Dario: No, no, no. A-are you okay? What's going on?
Jennifer: Uh, you know, actually, I-I'm fine, really. It's nothing, I just--
Dario: Whoa, hey, hey, come here, come here. Shh, shh, shh.
Shh, shh, shh. It's okay.
Sorry I'm late. My taxi was in an accident. The driver got furious. He tried to make a fight with another driver. I stepped in and ended up being the one getting punched.
Chad: Wow. Bad luck for you.
Trust me, it's not bad luck, okay? You need to understand that. I've never been so happy to get rid of something before in my life.
Chad: Great. Well, now it's outta your hands.
Good luck, sir. Frankly, from now on, you're gonna need it.
Justin: No. Just pretend you haven't found out about the money yet. And give me a week or two to dig into it. Okay. I'll get back to you.
Justin: Hey! She's back!
Adrienne: Ah! I am. Rested and relaxed. [Laughs]
Justin: So how was it being with the boys?
Adrienne: Oh, it was awesome. Oh, my gosh, I couldn't have asked for more. 'Course, they wouldn't let me do anything and insisted I rest and recuperate, so...
Justin: Glad to hear it.
Justin: So, how is everyone? Everyone's good?
Adrienne: They're wonderful. Healthy, happy. Oddly enough, though, they kept saying how much they wanted us to get back together.
Tripp: I-is there any proof? I mean, Kayla doesn't seem like somebody who smothers people to death.
Jade: Yeah. That's because she's completely two-faced. Look, Ava kidnapped Kayla and locked her away with no food and no water. You know about that, right? Well... did you know that Ava told Steve the only way that she would let Kayla go was... if he slept with her? Well... Steve hopped in her big bed and...did his duty. And, of course...he was never gonna tell Kayla about it, right? Trouble is...Ava filmed the whole thing with her phone. And...when Kayla was finally free and everything was supposed to go back to normal, Ava sent her a private little porn movie. Which...of course, made Kayla over-the-top crazy... and the rest is history.
Tripp: So this...film made Kayla commit murder?
Jade: Well, that and...other stuff.
Tripp: Like what?
Jade: Ava just kept sticking it to her, you know? And they wound up getting into it in the park--hair pulling and punching each other. Then later, Ava snuck into Steve and Kayla's house...and gave herself a morphine overdose. Well, the only people that have access to morphine are doctors, right? And everyone had seen them fighting and...it was kinda the perfect frame-up.
Tripp: A-Ava overdosed so she would frame Kayla for other--
Jade: Well, that's what Kayla's claiming, but... I mean, maybe Ava was telling the truth. Kayla said that she came home and found Ava blacked out with a needle still in her arm. And she was alive, so they rushed her to the hospital, and she pulled through.
Tripp: W-well, if Kayla saved her, why would she hurt her?
Jade: Because your mom made a big scene at the hospital. She told everyone that Kayla was the one that gave her the overdose. She was saying, "help me, save me, don't let her do it to me again," that kinda stuff. So...Kayla shut her up.
Tripp: Suffocated her.
Tripp: And Steve took the blame.
Jade: He loves her.
Tripp: I-I gotta say, my mom doesn't exactly come off as a person who--
Jade: Well, okay, maybe not, but, I mean... she may have been a little off her spool, but... is that really a reason to murder someone?
Abigail: Oh, god. [Sighs]
Dario: Is there anything I can do? Can I get you something?
Abigail: No. [Exhales] I just...I did what I had to do. It's--it's over. [Sighs]
Dario: Abby, I'm sorry. I don't know what you're talking about.
Abigail: I... filed for divorce.
Dario: Divorce. I'm sorry.
Abigail: Oh, god, I just couldn't keep living in limbo like that, Dario. I had to end it, it's--
Dario: Abby... are you sure? You know, maybe...
Abigail: You know, ever since I walked back into his life, it's just like... he was never committed to me and our relationship. And I know that he said that he was and he wanted to be and he wanted to do the whole vow renewal story, but deep down, I just knew, I-- I knew, and he did too, and I...
Dario: Okay. Maybe... maybe you should tell your lawyer to take it slow--
Abigail: No. I don't want to. No. What I'm doing...is right. What I'm doing is best for everyone. It has to be.
Chad: It's just a trinket. It's just a trinket.
Chad: Hey, hope!
Chad: Hey. What are you, uh, what are you doing here?
Hope: Uh, word has it this... place has great moussaka.
Chad: Yeah. Sure you're not, uh, just following me, trying to keep tabs? [Laughs]
Hope: [Laughs] Well...I did want to talk to you. Can I catch a ride home? On the DiMera jet.
[Lightly edgy music]
Chad: Um...catch a flight? Right, well, what makes you think I'm gonna head back to Salem...so soon? You know, I was thinking about sticking around a little bit, catching some local flavor.
Hope: Mm. I thought this was a business trip.
Chad: Yeah, well, the business didn't pan out, so... I'm gonna do some tourist things, you know? "When in Greece," as they say.
Hope: As they say, right. I thought you'd wanna get home, see Thomas. But seriously, if you are going home...can I catch a ride?
Abigail: I'm sorry.
Dario: For what?
Abigail: This. I mean, I always call you. You always come, and then you wind up holding me while I bawl my stupid eyes out. I just, I don't-- I don't want you to get the wrong impression, okay?
Dario: Hey, nobody is--is getting the wrong impression, all right? You need a friend. That's who I am. That's why I'm here. I made you that promise, remember?
Abigail: Thank you. God, I don't think I could do this without you
Rafe: Candy man?
Jennifer: Yeah. That's what most of the kids at the center were calling him. He must be the dealer.
Rafe: Well, it makes sense. The drug is sold in candy form. Those little gummy things.
Jennifer: Oh, dear god, unbelievable.
Rafe: Unfortunately, the candy man is not the only one who's selling this junk. But we'll get some eyes and ears on the streets. Thank you, this really helps.
Jennifer: You have to do something. You have to stop this.
Rafe: Believe me...I will.
Justin: Adrienne, I swear to you, I did not say one word to our boys about you and me getting back together.
Adrienne: I know. I flat-out asked them. And they admitted it was all their own doing, so... I did set them straight and tell them that I had absolutely chosen a life with Lucas, so...
Justin: Right. Well, don't worry. I'm sure our...southwestern family contingent will come around, eventually.
Justin: So how 'bout you? Uh, any problems with your recovery?
Adrienne: No, actually... desert air was just what I needed. Couldn't wait to get back to work, though. Part of me, at least. Is sonny here? Um, I wanted to give him his present from his brothers.
Justin: Oh, no. Well, he's actually out of town on a business trip. But he'll be back soon. I'll tell him to call you.
Adrienne: Great. I'd appreciate that. Thank you. Um...could you for me?
Justin: Oh, yeah.
Adrienne: Thank you. Well, um, I'm gonna get going. It was so good to see you, Justin. Thank you. Thank you.
Justin: Hey, Adrienne, um... I just want you to know that... even though I can't say that your picking Lucas made me happy, the most important thing for me is knowing that... that you're healthy again. Just knowing that you're getting better... that you're happy... that's all I need.
Adrienne: [Exhales] Thank you. That's...[Exhales] Thank you.
Tripp: This is just so weird. Like...I really felt a good vibe with Kayla.
Jade: Yeah. That's what she does. She's a total pro. She'll be your best friend. And then...she'll turn around and stab you in the back.
Tripp: That's what she did to you.
Jade: And loved every minute of it. I mean, everyone thinks she's some kind of saint... with the cardigan sweater and the perfect, perky little smile. But what they don't see... is when she's done with you, she will slice you up in a heartbeat.
Adrienne: How are you? Mmm, so good to see you.
Kayla: Good to see you!
Steve: How was glamping in Arizona?
Adrienne: Oh, it was awesome! I'm so rested and relaxed.
Kayla: Well, you look great.
Adrienne: Well, thank you.
Steve: Welcome home.
Adrienne: Thank you. I just came by from stopping at the mansion and saw Justin. He seemed pretty...happy to see me. It was nice, you know? No, you know what? Stop it. Lose the look. Nothing-- come on, seriously. Nothing has changed! I'm with Lucas, and he knows that. You know, how are you guys? How 'bout that? How are you doing?
Kayla: We're good.
Steve: We're fine. Yeah, we're pretty good.
Adrienne: Yeah? Yeah? Tripp still not wanting to talk to you?
Steve: Well, you know, actually, he's, uh, warmed up to us a little bit.
Adrienne: That's awesome! Fine. Then I wanna meet this nephew of mine. You can just give him his phone number, now, can't you?
Steve: Okay. Sure, I can. He'll wanna meet you too.
Tripp: I'm just gonna have it out with him--who killed my mom? No more lies!
Jade: No. You can't do that.
Tripp: Why not, huh? I deserve to know.
Jade: Yes, you do, but... like I said, it's just a hunch. I mean, I know she did it, but I don't have any proof. I mean, if you go to them right now, they're just gonna lie to your face again, and you're gonna be right back where you started.
Tripp: Yeah. Maybe I need to come at this from another angle.
Abigail: God, that's so fast.
Dario: Hey. Here. I got you some tea. What's going on? What's...what's the matter?
Abigail: I just got an email from my attorney... that they sent Chad's lawyer the divorce papers that I filed.
Chad: Thank you.
Chad: Well, the pilot called, said it'll just be a...couple hours so he can fuel and do all the maintenance checks.
Hope: Thanks. And I appreciate the ride home.
Chad: 'Cause it's free?
Hope: [Whispers] I'm thrifty.
Chad: Well, um...this trip was a bust for the business thing, so I'm gonna.. I'm ready to go on and git. All I gotta do...is pack.
Hope: Well, don't mind me. Just...pack away.
Chad: [Under breath] Perfect. Just think that it's... it's kinda weird that you're gonna sit here and watch me pack.
Hope: Don't forget. I got the free drink.
Chad: Uh-huh. Kinda seems as though you're just keeping an eye on me.
Hope: Yeah. I am.
Hope: Don't forget... I made a promise to look out for you.
Chad: Yeah, you keep telling me that.
Hope: What's wrong?
Chad: Um... Abigail just filed for divorce.
Adrienne: Tripp? Tripp! Oh, my gosh, this is amazing. Thank you so much for returning my call.
Tripp: Yeah, you know, it's not every day I get to meet a new relative.
Adrienne: [Laughs] No. Me either. I was so happy to find out I had another nephew. In fact, I was downright excited when Steve told me.
Tripp: Well...thanks. It's nice to hear. [Clears throat]
Adrienne: So I understand you're from Arizona.
Adrienne: Really? Excellent! I just got back from there. I have three grown sons in Scottsdale. [Laughs] One thing you're gonna find about the Johnson family... we are very tight-knit. We're always checking in on each other, always visiting, you know?
Tripp: Yeah, Steve, uh, talks about family a lot, how... important it is.
Adrienne: Yes. He means every word. I think part of it is... well, growing up, his home life wasn't really ideal, you know? In fact, it was downright miserable.
Tripp: Yeah. I heard a little about that.
Adrienne: Well, it's in the past, but I think that's why Steve tries so hard so make sure that that doesn't happen to his family. And, Tripp, I know...he's desperate to make up for all the years that he missed being your dad.
Tripp: Yeah, well, he says a lot of things, but...
Adrienne: He's a good man. You won't find any better. And again, I think part of it is that he's trying to... trying to make up for what a horrible man our father was.
Tripp: Yeah, when I did a search on Steve's dad--or your dad... all it said was that he died suddenly.
Adrienne: Yeah, um... I might as well tell you. I...[Sighs] He was killed. By me. Uh, it was...self-defense. It couldn't be helped. And I was very young. [Stammers] Look, the important thing that you need to know about what happened is that Steve... took the blame for it. Because that's the kind of man he is, Tripp. When he loves someone, he does anything he can to protect them. Never forget that.
[Soft, dramatic music]
Chad: This is impossible. I don't--it doesn't make any sense.
Hope: Chad, call her. Call her right now.
Chad: She's not gonna answer!
Hope: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Chad: Why wouldn't she just wait until I get home so we could at least--we could-- we could try to talk it out and work things through? I'm not gonna sit here and talk about this with you. You're her family...
Hope: Chad. You became family the day that you married Abigail. Look at me. We're good.
Chad: It just doesn't make any sense.
Hope: Is it... is it possible that she's-- I don't know--doing it to see how you'll react? I-I'm glad that you decided to go home so the two of you can talk. I imagine she's... very confused. Maybe you could change her mind.
Chad: No. She's sure.
Dario: Look, if you wanna back out or slow things down, you should probably do it sooner than later.
Dario: Mrs. Deveraux. Um... okay, look, I'm gonna go back to the club. I'll be there if you need me.
Jennifer: I'm assuming he's not the one who upset you. So it must be Chad.
Abigail: Mom, can we please just not talk about this right now?
Jennifer: Yeah, if that's what you want. You know what? Actually, no, Abigail. I have been walking around on eggshells worried sick about you, and you need to tell me what's going on.
Abigail: I filed for a divorce.
[Dramatic musical flourish]
Chloe: Oh, hey. Justin, how are you?
Justin: Eting I have to get to.
Chloe: Okay. I won't keep you.
Justin: Have you even...seen Brady yet? Or is that too much to ask?
Chloe: Yeah. I've been a couple of times. I'm probably gonna go later. I-I'm sorry, what's with the hostility? What's wrong?
Justin: You do know that he may die, right?
Chloe: Yeah, I do know that. It's because the drugs aren't working anymore and the heart transplant is failing. But...
Justin: But what?
Chloe: Why are you acting like it's my fault? I'm not the one who shot him.
Justin: No. But you're the one who set this whole thing in motion, Chloe.
Chloe: I'm sorry, Xander is the one who shot him, and he's an insane criminal. You're blaming me?
Justin: Yeah. Now he has Nicole and holly held captive. I hope that pleases you.
[Soft pop over pa]
Chad: I know exactly why she's doing this. She's doing this... so she can move on with somebody else.
[Lightly edgy music]
Chad: Your boyfriend's brother.
Hope: [Laughs] That's ridiculous, I highly doubt--
Chad: That's exactly what she's doing. I've seen them together, believe me. She--[Laughs] She--she smiles, she laughs, she puts it on for him, and I already know for a fact that Dario's in love with her.
Hope: No, you need to take a step back right now, and you need to ask yourself--no, you need to ask yourself... would Abigail file for divorce so she can go out with someone else? I think the answer to that is no. No! Chad, it's not who she-- [Softer] It's not who she is. You know that. So do I. Aside from the fact that Rafe and I would know all about it.
Jennifer: Abigail, that is the worst decision that you could ever make. You just separated!
Abigail: It needed to be made permanent, mom.
Jennifer: Have you even talked to Chad about this?
Abigail: There's nothing to even talk about.
Jennifer: Of course there is. Baby, listen to me. You are not...done. The two of you are never going to be over each other.
Abigail: It's over, mom. We're done. For good.
[Dramatic music swells]
Steve: Baby... you tuckers me out.
Kayla: Oh, come on. You love it.
Steve: Well, I love being with you.
Kayla: Hey, Tripp.
Kayla: Join us.
Tripp: Hey. [Clears throat]
Steve: So, uh, did you meet your aunt Adrienne? She said she was gonna try to get in touch with you.
Tripp: Yeah, yeah, we met, uh, had A... had a good talk.
Tripp: In fact, she's actually the reason I came looking for you. I've decided... well, maybe we should start getting to know each other a little better.
Steve: Well, that's great, man.
Kayla: I think you just made your dad's day. Maybe his whole week.
Steve: She's right, you did. Come on, sit down, join us.
Tripp: Thanks. [Ahem] Yeah, I-I decided it's, uh... it's time I get to know a lot more about...everybody.
[Ambient music playing]
Chloe: Hey, I need a drink, like right now.
Dario: I got just the thing. Specialty of the day. How's Nicole and holly?
Chloe: I don't know. All I do is worry about them. Oh, and get this--Justin just blamed me for everything. Said everything's my fault.
Dario: That's...kinda harsh. Tell you what. I'll make this drink for two... or four...or ten.
Dario: Whatever. I'm gonna join you. It's on the house, okay?
Chloe: Thanks. What are you worried about?
Dario: Life. I'm a constant worrier. So...we'll drink till one of us quits.
Chloe: Okay. What does the winner get?
Dario: We'll figure that out when we're buzzed. Are you ready?
Chloe: Game on.
Jennifer: I just--I don't understand. I really don't. How--how can you just do something that is so rash?
Abigail: I'm not, mom! Look, Chad has always accused me of running away when things get tough, and, okay, he's right--but that's not what I'm doing right now, okay? I'm standing up for what I know to be true. The fact of the matter is Chad is in love with two women. And I needed him to be there for me, 100%, and he wasn't!
Jennifer: He's the one who wanted to renew your wedding vows--it was his decision.
Abigail: Those are words, totally words. And I watched him when he got close to Gabi, and it was painful. He kept telling me he just needed more time, he was gonna make this huge transition. I got tired of waiting. I just needed him to give himself to me totally, mom.
Jennifer: I understand that, honey. But feelings...they just can't be switched on and off.
Abigail: Well...he sure switched them off when he thought that I was dead. And he fell in love with Gabi. So I am bringing this all to a close. Divorce will make this final. In fact, I have already... sent notice to his lawyers.
Chad: That's a nice idea. Wish it were true.
Hope: You don't know that. As far as we know, she--she could be testing you, seeing if you'll get on a flight and fly home and try to talk her out of it.
Chad: You don't understand! She's made it clear! She's walking away. And the thing is... I love Abigail... not just because of who she is, but she is the mother of my child. And--and, yeah, okay, so I-- I have feelings for Gabi. I've told her that and--and... she wants all of me. She wants my whole heart, and rightfully so, but I can't give that to her...right now. Right now. [Murmurs] I can't...
Hope: Well... I will tell you... that I doubt that Abigail is filing for divorce because of Dario.
Chad: Yeah. Well, she's moving out either way.
just trying to protect holly, right?
Dario: Of course I do. So we both hate that Nicole and holly are in trouble, but you can't let Justin Kiriakis get to you.
Chloe: Yeah. He's such a... blowhard.
Dario: You can't let anybody tell you how to feel, all right? My brother was just in here doing the same exact thing. I mean, who do these people think that they are, right?
Chloe: Yeah. Right.
Chloe: Okay, I...I think I'm gonna have to declare you the winner of this.
Dario: You quit?
Chloe: Yeah, I quit. I have to call my mom in New York--I miss my son-- to make sure he's okay. Thank you.
Dario: You're welcome.
Chloe: For all the drinks.
Dario: You're welcome. It's my pleasure. You should take a cab home.
Chloe: Will do, will do.
Dario: Right? Cab.
[Ambient music in background]
Adrienne: Finally! I was beginning to think you got lost.
Jennifer: I am so sorry.
Adrienne: No, don't be. So the story idea I was thinking about of where the kids are getting their drugs, they're-- Jennifer? Jennifer, is something wrong?
Jennifer: Um... yeah.
Jennifer: You know what, you're gonna hear about it anyway, so, um... Abigail is divorcing Chad.
Jennifer: Mm-hmm. And I know that I have had my problems with Chad, but I really think he's a good guy, and now I feel like he's part of our family. Abigail's making a huge mistake.
Hope: Maybe you do need some space.
Chad: Yeah. Abby's giving me all the space that I need.
Hope: I'll see you at the airport. In an hour or two.
Chad: Hope, uh, the, um... the, uh, the promise. Thank you.
Chad: I want you to imagine that all of the... the old--old books are gone and all of the busts and all of the creepy old furniture. And then I want you to imagine that all of that is replaced, and the walls are painted a beautiful light color, and there are pictures of our family all over the place. Thomas's toys are scattered all over. Are you imagining that?
Chad: Now open 'em. Wait--no, close 'em. I'm sorry. I forgot--daisy's crib is in corner.
Chad: Yep. Our daughter.
Abigail: [Laughs] Oh, yeah, our daughter.
Chad: Hold on, wait a second. What is that? Is that fluffy I hear barking somewhere? Fluffy!
Chad: Yeah, fluffy, all right? It's a perfect name for a dog that's gonna run around and play with toys and chase balls all over the house.
Abigail: I don't know about that name.
Chad: Okay, well, fine. It doesn't have to be fluffy.
Abigail: I meant daisy. And, Chad, we can't really be sure that our next child's gonna be a girl.
Chad: Well, then, you can name our next child whatever you want. And our third...
Abigail: Somebody's planning on a big family.
Chad: Well, it's our future. Might as well plan big. I don't understand. You--you're alive.
Chad: No... [Shaky breath]
Chad: Can--can I touch you?
Chad: It's you. [Whispers] Thank god.
Ooh for once in my life I feel a little good thing inside looking in your eyes I only wanna love you and hold you tight I feel fine because you're mine here in the light dancing with the light of love holding you tight tripping in the light of loving you my love is gonna shine because you're mine
Chad: Irreconcilable differences.
Chad: [Stammering] So I-- I don't-- [Murmuring]
[Somber instrumentals continue]
[Chad inhales, exhales]
