André: Father... he always liked playing his game. The strategy, the meticulousness... of the moves that would then... bring his opponent's downfall. But I like your instinct, which was to pick out the king. You know, it's in our blood... to seek power. [Chuckles] [Sighs] You know, your... grandfather's risen from the ashes once again. But where is he now? When we need him the most. You know, it's strange. Sometimes I think that father is here with us watching. And then there's other times where I wonder... will I ever see him again?
Rafe: Why are you looking at Stefano's case file?
Hope: Deimos' murder, it just, you know... it brought up a lot of bad memories. Rafe, I could've lost everything.
Rafe: Yeah. But you didn't. We're all still here.
Hope: I saw sonny this morning in jail. Doesn't look good.
Rafe: Yeah. It's too bad the fingerprints didn't tie Xander to the murder.
Hope: Yeah, well, I still think it's him. Hey... what do you think about you and me taking a little trip to Greece?
Rafe: [Laughs] I think you're crazy. You know Raines would never approve of that. As far as he's concerned, we already have our man.
Hope: Yeah, but sonny is not our man, Rafe. I'm not giving up. Even if I have to work this case on my own, I'm not giving up.
Rafe: Well, you're not on your own. Not as long as I'm around. Not going anywhere.
Eli: Hey, guys. Uh, sorry to interrupt. I've come looking for Lani. We're supposed to meet here to discuss a case, and she's late. Does she do that a lot?
Hope: No. Not at all.
Eli: Then I hope she has a good excuse.
Lani: [Laughing] Okay, okay! [Exhales heavily] I just need-- I gotta catch my breath. [Laughs]
JJ: Can I tell you how incredible you are.
Lani: You mean when I'm not hyperventilating.
JJ: I'm trying to give you a compliment.
JJ: I just can't believe how... how lucky I am to be with someone that's so beautiful. Badass, so much fun to be around.
Lani: Keep going. I'm getting my wind back.
Lani: Oh, no.
JJ: What is it? What's wrong?
Lani: I am late.
JJ: Late for what?
Lani: I'm so late for Eli.
Lani: [Sighs] We're supposed to be working on the case. [Sighs]
Dario: These even look better than the last batch.
Myron: These are perfect, Dario. You could pass these anywhere and nobody would know the difference.
Dario: High quality equals high profits. Wow.
Dario: You know, I gotta take this. We'll go over those details later. You can't keep calling me. You're a silent partner. Silent means you stay silent. Yeah, of course I'm gonna deliver on the promise. You just make sure you do the same. Hey, look, I gotta go. We'll talk later. Hey, you.
Gabi: Hey. I didn't like the sound of that call. What's going on, Dario?
Dario: You're not the only one with proof. Chad did it with the knife in the parlor. I think it would be best for everyone concerned if you just forgot about what you uncovered here. Because it would be a damn shame if that made its way over to the police. Chad DiMera would go down in flames. And I wouldn't think twice about lighting that fire.
Abigail: What am I gonna do?
[Knock at door]
Chad: Let's go, Abby. I know you're in there. Open the door.
Chad: So you're ignoring my calls and my texts? Starting to feel like you're avoiding me.
Abigail: I'm not avoiding you.
Chad: Did you do it or not? Confront Dario about stealing from me?
Dario: I think you've been spending too much time with Rafe. You're starting to act like a cop.
Gabi: Why did you hang up so quickly?
Dario: Because my little sister is here for our family breakfast. I didn't want to be rude.
Gabi: Come on. Who were you talking to?
Dario: I was talking to a vendor who was trying to shake me down for liquor prices. What's with the interrogation?
Gabi: Sorry. Sorry, I'm just a little tense because I spent the entire night up with Arianna.
Dario: She have nightmares?
Gabi: Well, I took her to see sonny, and I thought that would help her miss him less, but I think I made things worse.
Dario: Seeing your dad in prison, that's a tough thing for a kid to understand.
Gabi: Yeah. We both know what it's like to grow up without a father.
Dario: Yeah, I don't want that for her.
Gabi: I just hate to see sonny in that place. It's not... it's not for him, you know? And I don't know what to do to help him. The case against him is so strong, I... I don't know.
Dario: What does he say?
Gabi: I mean, if he killed Deimos, he doesn't remember doing it.
Dario: What if it's because he didn't do it?
Dario: I'm telling you sonny didn't kill Deimos.
Gabi: Dario, how do you know that?
Abigail: I gotta get ready for work, so we'll just talk about it later.
Chad: You're not shutting me out.
Abigail: I asked you to leave.
Chad: Not until you answer my question.
Abigail: It's none of your business.
Chad: It's none of my business? Theo found evidence that Dario hacked countess Wilhelmina and stole all that money. My money. I did you a favor by not going to the police, Abby. Out of respect to what we... to our history, so stop stalling and tell me if you confronted him or not.
Chad: And what did he say?
André: Oh, Thomas, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to be so...
André: How long have you been spying on me?
Kate: You make it sound nefarious. I live here, remember, as your wife.
André: Yes, I'm very well aware of that situation.
Kate: You know, when we first got married, I had no idea that one of your special skills was babysitting.
André: The nanny to run off for a family emergency. Besides, I like the opportunity to educate the DiMeras, the next generation. Someone has to focus on what's important for this family and to realize... the threats against us.
Kate: Yes. When I wasn't spying on you, I did hear your concerns.
André: They fact that someone was able to hack into the heart of DiMera and steal from us. We didn't even see it coming.
Kate: It's troubling.
André: Yes. Not being able to know who the enemy is, to be able to fight.
Kate: See, that's where you're wrong. Because Chad knows exactly who took the money.
Abigail: Dario understands that you expect him to make restitution for the hack.
Chad: Great. And when can I expect my money back?
Abigail: It's going to be a little while.
Abigail: Because it's complicated, Chad. I mean, the money's not just sitting there in a bunch of cash. It's off-shore accounts--
Chad: No, it is not complicated, Abigail. It has nothing to do with off-shore accounts. I can tell that you are obviously hiding something from me.
Abigail: I just need you to give Dario a little more time.
Chad: Time? I don't have time, Abby. I have a company to worry about. And you're obviously lying to me. What, to protect him?
Abigail: Chad, I'm not--
Chad: After everything that he's done, why are you keeping his secrets? All right, I'm done with this.
Abigail: Chad, where are you going?
Chad: To the police. I should've gone straight to Rafe in the first place. I'm sure he'll be real interested to know what his brother's been up to.
Abigail: No, Chad, you can't do that, no.
Chad: Why? I gave Dario a lifeline and he rejected it. Give me one good reason why I shouldn't turn him in.
Abigail: Do you really want to do that to the woman that you love? Because we all know how much Gabi means to you.
Gabi: Do you know something about sonny's case? Did Rafe tell you something?
Dario: No, Rafe doesn't tell me anything.
Gabi: Well, you sounded very sure just then when you said sonny did not kill Deimos, and even sonny's not sure of that.
Dario: It's just a hunch that I have.
Gabi: A hunch?
Dario: Yeah, you know, I've seen sonny with Ari. He's a good guy.
Gabi: Yeah, yes, he is. And I want to believe he's innocent, but lately, I've just seen a different side. When it comes to titan, he can be ruthless.
Dario: That's...that's the business world. That's cutthroat. You gotta do what you gotta do, Gabi, but doesn't mean he went and killed somebody.
Gabi: Deimos was in sonny's way at titan. Sonny believed he was a threat to his family.
Dario: There were people at that party that had grudges against Deimos, some even bigger than sonny.
Gabi: Are you talking about somebody specific?
Dario: Well, what about JJ? I mean, I know the cops let him go, but he had Deimos' blood on him. Are we sure he didn't do it?
Gabi: We--of course we're sure. We--what do you mean? He has nothing to do with this. Why are you even bringing him up?
Dario: I'm just... I'm just trying to help, but oof, boy did you just get upset when I brought up JJ.
Gabi: No, I didn't.
Dario: You sure you still don't have a thing for him?
JJ: You know, I prefer watching you get undressed. But there is something sexy about this too.
Lani: I can't believe I totally lost track of time. Where's that other shoe?
JJ: You know what? You want me to write you a note? "Dear agent grant, I'm sorry Lani was late for work today. I just...couldn't... keep my hands off her. I know you'll understand this because I've seen the way you look at her."
Eli: Stop it. Okay, any interest Eli has in me is strictly professional, but he can replace me in seconds, which is why I have to go. If I can just find that other shoe.
JJ: Maybe you need to hone your detective skills.
Lani: You were hiding that from me so I couldn't leave.
JJ: I can neither confirm nor deny that accusation.
Lani: Are you sure about that?
JJ: Okay, okay, I confess.
Lani: You better. Okay, I gotta go. I will see you at the station.
JJ: Okay. Hey, tell Eli I said hi.
Lani: Mm-hmm. Bye.
Rafe: Hey, I'm gonna head out to meet Dario and Gabi for a quick family breakfast.
Hope: You guys haven't done that in a while.
Rafe: Yeah, it's been too long. Actually worried about Dario. Hope he's doing okay. I'll see you soon.
Hope: Okay, have fun.
Hope: Bye. Still no Lani?
Eli: No, but she finally texts back. She's on her way.
Hope: Any new leads on the countess Wilhelmina hacking case?
Eli: Actually, I just got a solid one. The bureau's cybercrimes unit deciphered a code from the hack. They traced it back to an account created by someone named Myron Raditz. Do you know him?
Hope: Is the money still there?
Eli: It went into the account but then it just disappeared.
Hope: Yeah, of course it did.
Eli: So you do know him.
Hope: Yeah. Unfortunately, I do know of Myron Raditz. The smoother the skin, the more comfortable you are in it.
Lani: I am so sorry. I didn't realize how late I was.
Eli: You didn't realize or you didn't care?
Lani: Of course I care. You know how much this case means to me.
Eli: Lani, a good partnership starts with trust and communication. If I can't count on you to be here on time, how can I possibly count on you to have my back?
Lani: That's not fair. Being a few minutes late is not the same thing as--
Eli: A few minutes? You are more than a few minutes late. All right, I got a break in the case and you weren't even here.
Lani: What kind of break?
Eli: We traced back the hack to someone named Myron Raditz. But you were busy, so--
Lani: Hang on. That was my lead that led us to Myron.
Eli: No, that was the bureau's legwork.
Lani: You made a call to your buddies. I did the legwork. Maybe we should ask hope and see if she thinks I'm making a contribution. Listen, hope, you know how we went after that Raditz guy, right?
Hope: Uh, yeah.
Lani: Is something wrong?
Hope: The new evidence you have... I think it's gonna lead us right to Rafe's brother.
Gabi: You know, Rafe should be here by now. Do you think he's trying to skip out on our family breakfast?
Dario: Is this you trying to skip out on the question I just asked you about JJ?
Gabi: JJ and I broke up. End of story.
Dario: Is that right, is it the end of the story, because I heard--I heard you two shared a moment at the party.
Gabi: Okay. We were drugged by Deimos. Yes, we shared one dance when we were out of our minds.
Dario: Is that it?
Gabi: JJ and I are friends. I'm committed to Chad.
Dario: How committed?
Rafe: Oh, hi. I'm sorry, I know. I'm sorry, okay? I'm late. Been held up at the station.
Gabi: Anything new with sonny's case?
Rafe: Well, we found a lead on a suspect. A new suspect.
Gabi: Okay, is it solid?
Dario: You think this could lead to the real killer?
Rafe: I don't know. The lead actually didn't pan out like we'd hoped, so. I'm sorry.
Gabi: You're gonna keep trying, right? I mean, you're gonna find--
Rafe: Of course, Gabi, yes. Yes.
Dario: So this suspect, is it someone we know?
Rafe: Bro, come on. It's an active investigation. Okay, you know I can't talk about it. Are we here to have breakfast or what? Come on, people.
Gabi: Let's have breakfast.
Chad: What Dario did has nothing to do with Gabi.
Abigail: Of course it does. Her father's in prison, so, what, now her brother too?
Chad: Shouldn't have stolen from me.
Abigail: I know that you're angry at him. And I know you're angry at me too.
Chad: I'm not angry at you.
Abigail: Yeah, you are. You never wanted me to marry Dario in the first place.
Chad: Well, I was right about him, Abby.
Abigail: Well, it wasn't really your choice to make.
Chad: You're not giving me much of a choice here either. And I have a business to run.
Abigail: Even if it hurts somebody you love. I know how much Gabi means to you.
Chad: You know I would do anything to protect the people that I love.
Abigail: And you know that we have both always had that in common. Yeah.
Abigail: Yeah, we're renewing our vows, yeah.
Chad: So with this... new ring... we have a new beginning. I, Chad Michael DiMera, would like you, Abigail Deveraux DiMera, to be my wife. Again.
André: If Chad knows who hacked into DiMera and stole our money, why hasn't he said anything?
Kate: You're going to have to ask him.
André: Have you?
Kate: Yes, I did, and he won't name names. But I have a good idea of who he's protecting.
André: Thomas, please.
Kate: He's probably hungry.
André: I tried to feed him before, but he didn't seem to want to eat.
Kate: Oh, come on. Let me do it, let me do it. I have the touch. Lucas was the fussiest eater that you have ever seen. Hello, kiddo. Here we go. Let's open your mouth.
André: Kate, please--
Kate: Come on!
André: Look, I haven't got time for you to be coy. Tell me who attacked our family. Oh, spit it out, woman!
Kate: Excuse me?
(part missing here)
good day. JJ.
JJ: Hey, man. What are you doing here?
Chad: I was just having a conversation with your sister.
JJ: Everything okay?
Chad: Yeah, fine.
Abigail: Would Abigail say the same thing if I asked her? Why don't you have a seat? Tell me what's going on between you and my sister. I have spent years taking over-the-counter products
Chad: Things are never easy when Abby and I get together. It's... there's a lot to discuss. Mainly about Thomas and there are unresolved issues.
JJ: Unresolved issues. You mean feelings?
Chad: We've moved on.
JJ: That's not what I asked.
Chad: We worry about Thomas. That's it. Making sure he knows he has two parents that love him.
JJ: You're still not answering my question. But look, Chad, I'm no fan of my sister's new husband. But I don't want you jerking her around either. You said you had unresolved feelings.
Chad: No, you did. I said issues.
JJ: Does Gabi know about the issues?
Chad: We're fine.
JJ: Okay, well, I'm wondering if she's aware you're here visiting your ex--
Chad: How is this any of your business, JJ?
JJ: Gabi and I are friends.
Chad: Do you still have a problem with me and Gabi dating?
JJ: Not as long as you don't hurt her.
Chad: How would Lani feel about you being so protective?
JJ: Lani and I are cool.
Chad: Well, you and Lani are cool. Me and Gabi are great. And Abby is... yeah. Cool, we've all moved on.
JJ: Seems like it.
Chad: We should do this again soon, JJ.
JJ: Hope we understand each other.
Lani: Have a seat, Myron.
Myron: I'm telling you this is pointless. I'm not talking to any police until my attorney is present.
Eli: I'm more than happy to do all the talking. You see, I'm not with the Salem pd. I'm FBI. Look, we have been monitoring you. We know that you're responsible for hacking countess Wilhelmina and stealing from their accounts.
Myron: I don't know anything about that.
Lani: I have to be honest with you, Myron. My friend, the federal agent here, he's a by-the-book kind of guy. He's ready to lock you up in a cell and toss the keys at the bottom of the lake. But personally, I don't think that would be fair. You're not a criminal mastermind. You're just an it guy, right? Someone was paying you to move all those ones and zeroes around. That's the person we should lock up. That's the person who should take the fall. But if we can't get to that person then I've got no choice but to step aside and let agent grant take it out on you.
Eli: So what's it gonna be, Mr. Raditz? You gonna go down hard for this or you gonna give up your boss?
Rafe: So I get to the pub. The guy who called 911 is at the bar; he's freaking out. I mean, he's literally-- he's losing his mind. It takes him five minutes to calm down long enough to tell me what the emergency was.
Rafe: They were out of chowder.
Dario: Wait, he called 911 because there was no chowder?
Rafe: Yeah, they go crazy for the chowder.
Gabi: So what did you do?
Rafe: So I told him to try the French onion soup. Which he liked.
Dario: Look at this guy. My hero.
Dario: You should get...
Rafe: A medal.
Dario: A chowdah medal.
Rafe: Like a trophy.
Gabi: Guys, I love it when you're like this. It really warms my heart.
Rafe: Well, you're right. We have had our differences lately.
Dario: We have? Have we?
Gabi: Yeah, I don't like it when that happens, 'cause then we start going at each other. And that's not fun.
Rafe: Well, you know what? I'm not too big to admit that I need my family. I love you, sis.
Gabi: I love you.
Rafe: You know what, bro? I love you too. Wanna come in for it?
Dario: Hug it out? Hug it out, aww.
Gabi: Aww, you two saps. Okay, you know what, I'm gonna head out before... before this sappy love makes me totally lose it. Same time next week, yes?
Rafe: I'm in.
Dario: Of course.
Gabi: Okay good.
Rafe: I love you.
Gabi: Love you. All right, Dario. Love you.
Dario: Right here. Mwah. Love you. You be good.
Rafe: Yeah, you be good. Real good. This one. This one.
Rafe: I know, it's crazy. What about you? Everything's good?
Dario: What about me?
Dario: Of course it's good. Doing great, why-- why you worried about me now? Come on, we're having a nice breakfast.
Rafe: Why am I worried about you? 'Cause I'm your big brother. It's my job.
Dario: Okay, look. You know me, I... I'm chasing off all the bullies, come on.
Rafe: The bullies.
Dario: The bullies.
Rafe: Okay, that's not--
Dario: I'm a superhero.
Rafe: Your personal life? Abigail--look, I just-- come on. I'm worried she's gonna break your heart.
André: Oh, Kate. Let's be reasonable now.
Kate: Reasonable? Did you see what you did to my blouse?
André: We're even now.
Kate: Yeah, no, no, no, I don't play even.
André: Oh, Kate, this is beneath you.
Kate: Beneath me? You call me woman one more time you're gonna see what even means.
André: Oh, Abigail, we were just...
Abigail: Having a food fight with my son's breakfast.
Kate: Well, no, I don't-- I wouldn't call it a food fight.
André: Had it been a food fight, I would have clearly won.
Kate: Are you out of your mind? I got you right in the face. You barely even... you know, I--I think that I'm going to get the baby and bring him into the kitchen and get him all cleaned up.
André: Good idea.
Kate: Mm-hmm. Here we go, Thomas. Oh!
André: Bye, Thomas.
Kate: Say bye-bye.
Kate: So, lunch later?
André: Yes, if you can keep it on the plate.
Kate: [Scoffs] Bye, Thomas. I'm sorry about that. You know how Kate is.
Abigail: I didn't come here to police your babysitting. I need your help with Chad.
André: Why, what's wrong? Is he in trouble?
Abigail: Big trouble. André, I think that Chad killed Deimos.
