Steve: Oh, Mama Brady's chowder. Always good for what ails you.
Kayla: Mm, well, I'm hoping it's gonna help me make sense of all these invoices?
Steve: Wait a minute. Since when are you the pub's accountant?
Kayla: Well, since roman took it over from my mother and he just decided to throw all these invoices in a drawer and just forget about them.
Steve: You don't really have to do this, do you?
Kayla: Yeah, I do. It's the only thing keeping me from going to the hospital and clearing out my office.
Steve: You'll be back in that office before you know it.
Kayla: I'm trying to believe that. But I'm telling you after my family, my work, I mean, it's, it's everything. If I'm not gonna be a doctor, what will I do?
Kate: You really think I'm going to accept that? I tell you what, I'm going to call Mr. Chen and then we'll see which side you're really on. [Scoffs]
Andre: I told you not to take such a hard line with Mr. Yu.
Kate: Mm, that's funny, I don't remember asking for your advice. I am the CEO, remember?
Andre: Hmm, and doing such a bang-up job.
Kate: Ah... well, look at that. Mr. Yu caved.
Andre: Oh. Well, that's excellent. Let's just hope our good fortune continues. In more ways than one.
Kate: I know you're worried about Chad. I am, too. You know we're just going to have to trust that Theo will be able to hack into Dario's phone and destroy that photo.
Andre: It's not that I doubt that Theo won't be able to erase that photo. I just hope he does it in time, before they nail my brother for Deimos' murder.
Abe: So what are you up to, son? Theo? What was that?
Abe: Whatever was on your computer screen you didn't want me to see.
Theo: Nothing important. It's just stuff for my job.
Abe: What job? What the hell are you talking about?
Theo: Well Chad hired me. I'm working for DiMera.
Abe: Oh, the hell you are.
[Soft dramatic music]
Chad: [Clears throat] Look, I was thinking that after we--
Gabi: Chad, please don't be mad. It fell out of your jacket pocket. I wasn't snooping around.
Chad: I can explain that.
Gabi: No, you don't have to. I'm sorry if I spoiled the surprise.
Gabi: I thought, um... never mind. I just thought that--
Chad: Oh, uh... [Chuckles awkwardly] No, that's...
Gabi: This is what?
Chad: Abigail's ring.
Gabi: Right, yeah. This is Abigail's ring. So what's it doing here? Why are you carrying your ex-wife's ring in your pocket?
Abigail: You're going into the witness protection program and you want me to go with you?
Dario: It's our chance to start over. For me to prove that I am worthy of you.
Abigail: And if I say no?
Dario: Well, then I'll have to take that picture of Chad to the cops, and they will arrest him for Deimos' murder and he will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Eli: Hey, you got a minute?
Lani: Sure, what's up?
Eli: I just spoke to my boss about the Hernandez situation and I want to bring you up to speed.
Lani: Did Dario confess?
Eli: He didn't have to. We had him dead to rights. But he wants to make deal.
Lani: Does he? And what are the terms?
Eli: Charges dropped. Witness protection.
Lani: That's a pretty bold request, and what's he willing to give up in exchange?
Eli: Lani, if I tell you this, it has to stay between us.
Lani: Of course.
Eli: No discussing it with anyone that's on the force.
Lani: I heard you the first time.
Eli: He's willing to give up his partner.
Lani: Really? But our investigation didn't show there was a partner. Who is it?
Abigail: You're blackmailing me!
Dario: I love you.
Dario: I need you. I need you in my life. I know you may not return the feelings right now, but I'm hoping that you'll--
Abigail: What are you hoping? That someday I'm just gonna come to my senses and fall head over heels in love with you? Not gonna happen, Dario.
Dario: Maybe not right away--
Abigail: I mean, seriously, do you really think that I would leave my mother, my brother, my child so that I could go away with you when I might never see them again?
Dario: I assumed Thomas would come with us. I'm his stepfather now.
Abigail: Okay, but Chad's his actual father and he loves him too, so I don't really see him letting me just take off with his son.
Dario: We're gonna find a way to work this all out.
Abigail: No, actually we're not because I'm not going with you.
Dario: I really don't want you to force my hand here, Abigail, but you're not leaving me much of a choice, so either you're gonna come with me or you know the alternative. What's it gonna be?
Steve: Baby, listen to me. Hey, hey, hey, are you listening? Hey... you are not going to lose your job. As soon as I find out who's setting you up you will be vindicated, and you will be chief of staff at university hospital until you decide to retire. Okay? Which come to think of it will probably be never.
Steve: Yeah, unless maybe I offer you a first class cruise around the world or something like that? How would that be?
Kayla: What would I do without you?
Steve: I ask myself the same question 100 times a day about you.
Kayla: Are you sure you're not sorry that you're here and not in Greece helping Paul with Sonny's case?
Steve: John ended up going anyway, and even if he hadn't, it wouldn't change my mind. It's you, sweetness, you are my first priority. Come here.
Theo: Sorry, dad, I can't talk I have to go.
Abe: No, you're not going anywhere until you tell me everything about this job that Chad gave you without consulting with your father.
Abe: No, you just leave this to me, Valeria. So how long has this been going on, Theo? How long have you been working for the DiMeras?
Theo: It hasn't been that long.
Abe: What exactly are you doing for them?
Theo: Just it stuff. It's no big deal.
Abe: Well if it's no big deal then why are you acting so suspiciously? And why did you slam that computer shut?
Chad: Okay, so I know how this looks, and I think I probably know what you're thinking.
Gabi: Really? That maybe you're pining over your ex-wife? No, why would I think that? Just because you're carrying her ring around in your pocket--
Chad: If you could just give me a chance to explain before you go jumping to conclusions.
Gabi: Yeah, I'm listening.
Chad: Okay, it's like this. I was looking for some papers in my desk and then I came across the ring. And then so I--Lucas showed up. I didn't know what to do with it. I put it in my pocket, you know, which was... so then when I was getting undressed I had it and I was gonna put it a-- you don't believe me?
Gabi: I didn't say that. Okay, it's just after everything you've told me about everything that happened the night of the party after you renewed your vows, the kiss. Chad, what am I supposed to think?
Dario: I get that you're upset.
Abigail: You know, I thought you were my friend! When I came back to Salem you were so great to me. You let me hide, you didn't give me away and you know what? I was a pretty great friend to you too!
Dario: You were. Always.
Abigail: So why did you blackmail me like that, huh? Why did you trick me into marrying you?
Dario: What are you talking about?
Abigail: Yeah, that's right, Dario, I know. I know you that you didn't need to marry me in order to stay in the country. You just lied to me about it all.
Eli: [Sighs] Unfortunately, the identity of Dario's partner is between me and my bureau bosses for now.
Lani: Even though I'm your partner on the case?
Eli: Not even the Salem pd can know who it is until we vet Dario's claim, and make sure it's legit.
Lani: Okay. I understand.
Eli: Lani... I hope you know that I really appreciate your help on this case. And if I was acting like a jerk earlier--
Lani: You were, but I forgive you. Besides, you gave me this great opportunity to work with the FBI and I am beyond grateful. So what next?
Eli: We're actually on hold until we hear back from the FBI regarding Dario's case. You don't need to stick around and wait if you don't want to.
Lani: I wouldn't mind seeing JJ, only fair since you interrupted us earlier.
Eli: Yeah, well, it won't happen again, promise.
Lani: Thank you, Eli.
Theo: Kate and André said that I need to keep my work confidential.
Abe: [Scoffs] And that wasn't a big red flag.
Theo: Sorry, dad.
Abe: I don't want you involved with those people.
Theo: Those people? Those people are my family. Mine and mom's.
Abe: Right. They're family, not your employers. You're going to quit.
Theo: What? Dad, no I'm-- dad, come--you can't do that, come on.
Abe: I've done it. Valeria, let's go.
Dario: I didn't lie to you.
Abigail: [Chuckles wryly]
Dario: When I told you that I was gonna be deported, I was telling you the truth.
Abigail: Oh, so it's just the little bit about needing to get married that was a lie then, right?
Dario: If you'll just listen--
Abigail: Why? Am I gonna listen to you so that you can spin another lie? Uh-uh, sorry, too late because Kate already told me that you came clean to her about the fact that you didn't need anything more than a little paperwork to avoid being deported. And the only reason that I believe your lie about the drug lord having a hit out on you in Mexico is because I double checked it with commissioner Raines first.
[Soft dramatic music]
Dario: Okay, okay, I lied to you, okay? But I only did it because--
Abigail: Because why?
Dario: Because I love you. I tried to be the good guy, okay? I fought my feelings for a long time, but when I saw the way that Chad treated you, how he broke your heart into a million pieces I knew I would do whatever it took to win you over.
Abigail: I don't love you, Dario. I never will.
Dario: You might if you just open your heart and forget about Chad because you and him, it's a lost cause. Chad is with Gabi now, and that's not gonna change.
Chad: Hey, look... I need to get something through to you, okay? Abby's the mother of my son. She's always gonna be in my life, but like I've told you the vows, the kiss, the ring, everything, it meant nothing to me. It meant nothing to me, okay? So sorry, what are you thinking?
Gabi: That, okay? I'm thinking just that because if ever since the night of the martin house party things have changed between us.
Chad: Nothing's changed.
Gabi: Yes, it has.
Chad: Gabi, I'm still committed to you.
Gabi: Only me?
Gabi: For now.
Chad: What does that mean? What does that mean?
Gabi: Look, when you told me that Dario's been doing all these illegal things I just started thinking that-- [Sighs]
Chad: What? Just tell me what you're thinking.
Gabi: I didn't want to tell you but, okay, you know what, I need to know right now. If Abigail divorces Dario you'd take her back, wouldn't you?
Kayla: Ugh. Roman, roman, roman!
Steve: Well, looks like he hasn't paid either one. Well, look, the dude's a cop, not an accountant.
Kayla: Well, it's a mess. It's a total mess.
Steve: And it's not your job to clean it up. You're not an accountant either, you're a doctor.
Steve: You've been healing people your whole life. God knows you patched me up more times than I can count.
Kayla: Never made it easy for me.
Steve: Even now, you can't help yourself. Flew all the way to Prague when I got shot chasing after Stefano just to make sure I was okay. It's what you do, sweetness.
Kayla: It's what we do. You get hurt and I take care of you.
Steve: Yeah, I think it's just an excuse to get my shirt off, right?
Kayla: Well there is that.
Steve: Hey, there's hardly anybody in here. Why don't you close up early and we'll save roman a few bucks on next month's utility bill? Hmm, okay?
Kayla: [Softly] Okay.
Kayla: I'll go tell the kitchen staff they can go.
Steve: Goodie. Hurry.
Valerie: So much for dancing the night away.
Abe: [Sighs] I know, I'm sorry.
Valerie: It's all right.
Abe: No, no, no, it's not. I wanted tonight to be special.
Valerie: Well the night's not over yet.
Abe: I didn't even know that Theo had a job, never mind that he was working for the DiMeras. And why the hell didn't he tell me?
Valerie: Well, maybe 'cause he guessed how you might respond this way. Abe, why are you so upset? I mean, I know that the DiMeras have done some questionable things in the past, but I was under the impression that since Chad's been in charge, they've straightened out their ways. I know they've certainly been more than generous, beyond generous to the hospital over the years.
Abe: Yeah, well, making up for past sins.
Valerie: Well why are you just so upset?
[Soft dramatic music]
Abe: I'm afraid. I'm afraid of history repeating itself.
Kate: Theo, what're you doing here? You're supposed to be working on Chad's problem.
Andre: Keep it down. Chad's upstairs. So, were you able to hack into Dario's file?
Andre: Ah, wonderful.
Kate: Okay, so you erased--
Andre: The photo in question?
Theo: Oh, you mean the photo of Chad standing over Deimos' dead body, wiping off prints to a knife he plunged into his chest? Abby told me so I'd know what I was looking for.
Andre: Well, we kept those details away from you just to protect you.
Kate: Look, Theo, the important thing is that you deleted it. You did delete it, right?
Gabi: I knew this was too good to be true. It was way too short of a time before Abigail came back.
Chad: If you're gonna ask me a question can I have a, like, a moment to formulate the proper response? No, okay, look, if Abby and Dario got divorced then nothing, absolutely nothing would change between us.
Gabi: I want to believe that, but then I find a ring in your pocket--
Chad: And I told you I forgot to put it back.
Gabi: Maybe because you couldn't let it go.
Chad: Why are you doing this?
Gabi: I'm not doing anything. I'm not making anything of this.
Chad: You don't believe me though.
Gabi: No, I don't. I want to believe you.
Chad: So then just believe me. This is becoming ridiculous, Gabi.
Gabi: I'm being ridiculous now, is that what it is?
Chad: No, that's not what I meant. You know it's ridiculous because of how I feel about you and you're not usually this insecure, or needy but--
Gabi: Oh, so ridiculous and needy, that's a winning combination.
Chad: That's not what I meant either. You're not insecure and needy usually.
Gabi: Oh, so usually, just not now?
Chad: Why are you doing this?
Gabi: Why am I doing this? So this is all on me now? Look, I'm not the one that's carrying my ex's ring in my pocket!
Chad: And I already explained that.
Gabi: Not well enough!
Chad: Okay, fine. You know what? Then I'm gonna take it and I'm gonna bring it to the jeweler and I'm gonna sell it.
Gabi: Yeah, when? I don't want--
Chad: I'll do it tomorrow.
Chad: They're not open tonight.
Gabi: Well I don't want that thing with me. I'm not gonna sleep here with that. It's that or me.
Chad: Okay, you know what? Then fine, you know what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna take it, I'm gonna bring it down stairs, I'm gonna get it as far away from you as possible. How's that?
Gabi: Great. That sounds like a great start.
Chad: It does, and then we're good, okay?
Gabi: Yes, okay, go.
[Soft dramatic music]
Abigail: I'm well aware that Chad and Gabi are a couple. That's not the issue. But what you are asking me to do, to leave my friends, to leave my family, to leave Thomas so that I can go into hiding with you?
Dario: You did it before to spare Chad.
Abigail: And I couldn't go through with it! And you should know that more than anyone. Because you heard me say how hard it was to stay away and you know, if you really loved me the way that you say that you do you would never even consider asking me to leave my son again. Not after everything you watched me go through. So no, I'm sorry I won't be going. Not now and not ever.
She's nationally recognized
Valerie: You raised a good kid, Abe, with a kind heart. He knows right from wrong.
Abe: So did his mother. But when Lexie learned that she was Stefano's daughter, it was a constant battle for her to resist his influence.
Valerie: Yeah, but Stefano's gone, right?
Abe: Andre isn't. Theo spending time with that bastard just scares the hell out of me. And what if he convinces Theo to do something wrong that he doesn't even realize it until it's too late?
Valerie: But you're getting ahead of yourself, Abe. Listen, as far as we know it's harmless. He's just doing some computer programming for him.
Abe: Well, we don't know that for sure... and there is only one way to find out.
Andre: What a judgmental, pompous--
Kate: Father. Father. Theo's father.
Andre: Yeah, I know. He was married to my late sister, Lexie. She happens to be a DiMera as well but he still hated the lot of us.
Theo: No, he loved my mom.
Kate: Well, honey, of course, he loved your mom, and he loves you. That's why he's concerned. He just can't see that photo.
Theo: Well, he might have seen it by now.
Andre: What do you mean?
Theo: I mean, my dad took the laptop while the picture was still up on the screen, and if he opens it, it's gonna be the first thing he sees.
Kate: Oh, my god.
Andre: So how do we get it back?
Kate: Can't you just use another computer and you can hack into his phone and access those files?
Theo: No, the VPN key I need is on that laptop. It's gonna take me a while again to crack the key from a new computer.
Andre: We don't have a while.
Kate: What are we gonna do if we can't get that back?
Andre: We don't have much choice. We've got to protect Chad at all costs.
Chad: Wow. Protect me from what?
Dario: You're not gonna come with me?
Abigail: I'm not.
Dario: Well, as long as you know there's gonna be consequences.
Abigail: Mm. Well, maybe you want to hurt me, but you would never hurt Gabi.
Dario: [Laughs softly]
Abigail: That's why you wouldn't turn that picture of Chad into the police.
Dario: News flash, I don't think Chad's any good for my sister either, so thanks to your decision he's gonna be out of both of your lives.
Abigail: You seem to forget that you're in here waiting for your deal to go through. I work out there. All I got to do is walk into evidence lock up, grab your phone when no one's looking, and delete that picture.
Dario: Oh. Oh, yeah, I might be scared if I hadn't backed the photo up on the cloud, and multiple servers. So you go on right ahead, you delete that photo. There's plenty more where that came from.
Abigail: You know, I wouldn't be so sure. (Vo) more "doing chores for mom"
Dario: What did you do, Abigail?
Abigail: Nothing. Yet. But don't kid yourself into thinking that you've got this whole thing figured out. 'Cause I'm gonna figure out a way to protect Chad. But I'm not gonna do it by going with you.
[Knocks on door]
Eli: Abigail, I need to speak to your husband alone.
Abigail: That's fine. I need to get out of here anyway.
[Soft dramatic music]
I love you. Think about what I proposed. I think you'll realize that it's the best solution for everyone involved.
Chad: So what is it we're protecting me from?
Andre: Oh, Dario Hernandez.
Andre: Well, Theo told us that he was able to hack into Contessa Wilhelmina.
Chad: Dude, I thought we were gonna keep that between us?
Theo: No, I know. Sorry.
Kate: Chad, look we just want to protect you and the company from any further attacks.
Andre: And we have to be able to stop that snake.
Chad: No, not yet, all right? I told Abby that I'd give her time to convince Dario to make restitution.
Andre: Well, good luck with that.
Chad: I gave her my word. Can we please respect something I say for once in this house?
Kate: Oh, okay, look. Yes, of course we can. If you feel that Abigail can handle Dario then we're not gonna do a thing.
Theo: I got to go.
Andre: Oh, let me walk you out.
Kate: No, I'll walk you out.
Chad: Oh, that's cute. [Exhales]
Valerie: Abe, wait. Theo is an adult, capable of making his own decisions. You open this computer and you're basically telling him, you don't respect that fact.
Abe: [Exhales] I can't just--
Valerie: Can't what? Trust him?
And you'll give him back his computer, right?
Abe: I will think about it. Look. Right now I would like to-- [Chuckles] I would like to get back to our romantic evening if I haven't completely ruined it.
Valerie: No, you've still got a chance.
Valerie: I don't like seeing you upset like this.
Abe: Thank you.
Kayla: Looks like I have a secret admirer again, I wonder who could it be?
Steve: Too obvious? It's not every day I get to celebrate the moment I realized how lucky I am.
Kayla: And here I thought you forgot about our first anniversary.
Steve: Well, we have a few. But you know what they say, you never forget the first.
Kayla: [Sighs] I can't believe you did all this.
Steve: Oh, sweetness, don't you know by now I would do anything for you?
Kayla: [Softly] Yeah.
Steve: Okay, I'm a little rusty...
Steve: But here goes. Happy anniversary, sweetness. Hang on.
I love you.
Kayla: Thank you.
Steve: Hey, now let's try this on. Give me that pretty wrist.
Kayla: [Laughs] Amazing.
Steve: Look at that. I love you so much.
Steve: [Quietly] Hey.
Kayla: Mmm. Thank you for all of this. Just reminding me how blessed I am.
Steve: We're both blessed, baby.
Steve: Now... one more thing.
Kayla: [Chuckles softly]
[Romantic music playing]
Steve: Will you dance with me?
Steve: Come on. Mmm.
It's undeniable the way I crave your lips it's inconceivable that one touch could feel like this
Kate: I decided to channel Stefano too, in hopes of figuring out our next plan.
Andre: Hmm, well, I'm way ahead of you. First thing we've got to do is deal with Abe carver.
Abe: Once again, I'm so sorry about leaving the club.
Valerie: It's all right, I'm enjoying this wonderful star-filled night. I wouldn't want have wanted to miss that.
Valerie: Or this yummy chocolate treat.
Abe: Well, you are a wonderful woman.
Abe: You know it's... it's in appreciation for that, and all the ways that you just... you continue to amaze me that I got you... I got you something.
Valerie: Oh, Abe.
Abe: Go ahead, open it. Hey now, look... [Clears throat] If you don't like that you can take it back.
Valerie: Oh. Oh, I love it. Thank you. Thank you so much. [Laughs softly]
Abe: And I will keep my word. I'll take you dancing.
Valerie: Oh, you better. Baby, help me put this on.
Valerie: Oh, it's so gorgeous.
Abe: Here, let's see.
Valerie: I think you open it here?
Abe: Ah, perfect.
Valerie: Oh, yeah. Got it?
Abe: Pardon my clumsy fingers.
Valerie: No, it's great.
[Soft dramatic music]
Abigail: Oh, Theo. Oh, my god. Thank god. I really could use some good news.
Theo: Good news?
Abigail: Yeah, well, I'm assuming if you're not in front of the computer that means you've found the picture of Chad and you're-- Theo? Did something happen?
Theo: We may have hit a little snag.
Eli: I heard back from my boss at the bureau.
Dario: Am I getting a deal or what?
Eli: The wheels are in motion as we speak. As long as you come through on your end and your partner is deemed worthy of the exchange, the FBI is willing to waive the charges and place you in witness protection.
Dario: I'll come through. Oh, and I'll need the arrangements to put my wife in the program too.
Eli: Abigail's going with you?
Dario: She wouldn't have it any other way.
Gabi: Hey. I know you're still mad, but I just couldn't help how I felt.
Chad: No, I am not mad. I'm an idiot. You had every right to be upset.
Gabi: You mean that?
Chad: Yeah, I should've got rid of the ring a long time ago. I'm sorry.
Gabi: That I'm not gonna argue with.
Chad: Hey. You know I'd never want to hurt you. Believe that.
Gabi: Yeah, listen I don't want to talk anymore tonight. I'm kind of tired.
[Soft dramatic music]
Hey, I'm sorry.
Gabi: Yeah, we'll feel better in the morning.
Chad: So... those knots are still bugging me.
Gabi: Yeah, good night.
Chad: Good night.
