Steve: What are you doing?
Kayla: I--I thought you were working this morning.
Steve: I am. What are you doing?
Kayla: Well, the board has decided that they are going to appoint someone to take my place while I'm on suspension.
Steve: And you're already clearing out?
Kayla: They want the office in the morning.
Steve: [Sighs heavily] Okay. Well, don't pack the computer up yet, because I need to use it.
Steve: To do what I promised. To prove that someone's setting you up.
Tripp: That was too hot to run.
Joey: Hey, man, it's the Midwest. Better get used to running in the humidity.
Tripp: Yeah, I was still ahead of you the whole way, though.
Joey: The sun was in my eyes.
Tripp: Nice try.
Joey: Who's that from?
Tripp: Uh, jade.
Joey: Oh. Thought she was, uh, on a trip with her mom.
Tripp: She is. Uh... she just wanted to let me know how it's going. She's getting a second chance with her mom, and I wanted to hear what it was like. It's something I never got. Are you mad that I still talk to jade?
Joey: Aw, man, if Claire used all this protein powder, I'm gonna kill her.
Chad: Yeah, no, that's, uh-- that's great. I'll--I'll bring the ring in this afternoon. You too. All right. Yeah, bye. Hey.
Gabi: Who was that?
Chad: That was the jeweler. I got to take the ring in to get it appraised so I can-- so I can finally get it sold.
Gabi: Listen, you don't-- you don't have to do that, okay?
Chad: Yes, I do. I said I would.
Gabi: It's only because of me and I was being such a bitch about it last night.
Chad: No, no, no you weren't. Listen, if--if you had something that JJ gave me, I'm--I-- believe me, I--I would be upset. Abby and Dario are together, and you and I are together. There's no reason I should have that ring still.
Gabi: That's really why you're selling it?
Chad: Yes, that's really why.
André: Yes, I'm watching Abe's house. He hasn't left yet.
Abigail: But what about email or phone? André, you and Theo, you've got to get that laptop, and you've got to destroy that picture of Chad.
André: Believe me, I know.
Abigail: Because if you don't, Dario is threatening to blackmail into going into the witness protection program with him.
André: I will not allow that to happen. I didn't raise you from the dead so that you could end up in the middle of nowhere with that little rat. I want you to calm down. Dario's in jail, and I'll take care of Abe.
Abigail: André, if I have to leave Chad and Thomas, I--
André: You won't.
Abigail: Well, I better not, because I can't do it again.
Dario: Honey... I'm home. Who are you talking to?
Rafe: Hey, I just heard that my brother's out on bail.
Eli: Yeah, he is.
Rafe: Well, if anyone's a flight risk, it's him. What idiot made that deal?
Eli: Me. If Dario takes off, he can kiss his witness protection deal goodbye, and that is his best chance of getting out of all the trouble that he's in. Trust me, he'll stick around.
Rafe: Well, trust me, you can't believe a word that the guy says.
Eli: Well, you weren't there when I made the deal, Rafe.
Rafe: Yeah, what exactly are the terms of this deal?
Eli: They haven't been finalized yet.
Rafe: Oh, they haven't... yet he's already out! He's out, Eli! Damn it, I'm telling you, the only way to get through to this guy is to lock him up.
Eli: I'm sorry, Rafe. But things don't always work out that way, all right?
Gabi: You're being very understanding.
Chad: Come on, I shouldn't have put you through all that.
Gabi: I don't like to feel whiny and insecure, and... what is it you called me? Ridiculous and needy.
Chad: Who said--I said those things?
Chad: No, I--well, I didn't mean them if I did. I'm sorry. All right, let me take this ring back and... then make it up to you. How about lunch at your favorite restaurant? That'd be fun, huh? That little French place on magnolia?
Gabi: Let me see if I can, uh, squeeze you into my schedule. Squeeze you in here.
Chad: You got to pull your schedule on this.
Gabi: Yes, I do. Oh, no.
Chad: What? [Panting] The paper says that Dario's been arrested.
Gabi: It says that he's been arrested for the theft of countess W. You said that Abigail would fix it so that the police would not be involved--what's happening?!
Chad: I've got nothing to do with this. I didn't know about it.
Gabi: Why didn't Rafe call me?
Chad: Just give me a sec.
Gabi: No, I have to go.
Chad: All right, let me find somebody to watch Thomas.
Gabi: What about the nanny?
Chad: I don't--she's out. She's shopping.
Gabi: No, no, I can't wait, okay? I can't wait. Somebody from the family has to be with Dario.
Chad: Okay, just wait.
Gabi: No, I have to go.
Abigail: Guess what, mom? Dario's home.
André: He's home?! What, have the police lost their bloody minds?! You don't think he told them about Chad...
Abigail: I don't know. But I should probably let you go. Um, thank you very much for taking care of Thomas last night.
André: I will get that laptop even if I have to pry out of Abe's cold, dead hands. But one thing you've got to do-- you stay there with Dario.
Abigail: I will. Why'd they let you out?
Dario: My lawyer got me out on bail while they work out the details of the witness protection deal. [Exhales heavily] I told them to think about someplace with a beach. How does that sound?
Abigail: You know, I think even a sunny spot can be a real drag with a woman who hates your guts.
Dario: [Laughs] You know, I--I could've told them that Chad offed Deimos. I could've showed them that picture that I took, but I didn't. Instead, I'm giving up someone who could've made me big money for the rest of my life.
Abigail: You're just all heart, aren't you?
Dario: I am when it comes to you, and you're gonna love that beach.
Abigail: I wouldn't be so sure of yourself, because I have not told you that I was going.
Dario: Well, you've had all night to think about it. So either you come with me... or... I show this... to the cops.
Abigail: How did you get that back?
Dario: That's what happens when you make bail. Life goes back to normal. And this... is your new normal. So... I think you'd better start packing. Yikes...
Kayla: The it guy already looked at my tablet. He said it hadn't been hacked. And you know no one has access to my passcode.
Steve: Well, that's not why I want to use your computer. Can you pull up the general duty scheduling starting with the day of the first mistake and show me what shift you were on?
Kayla: Okay. There.
Steve: Okay, now mark all three days when you supposedly prescribed the wrong dosages, and let me know if Shelly was on duty.
Kayla: Well, we don't have anything on her.
Steve: Okay, so we widen the search. We find any medical personnel who was working all three of those shifts.
Kayla: Feels like a long shot.
Steve: You know what feels like a long shot to me, baby? You making the same serious mistake three times.
Kayla: Okay, well, there might be a lot of names on that list.
Steve: Yeah, there could be. But we have to come at this from every angle. You're not typing.
Kayla: [Sighs] Can I tell you how much it means to me that you are the very best detective in the world and you believe in me?
Steve: Thanks, baby. Now clickity-click.
Joey: Sure you don't want me to make you one of these?
Tripp: No, I hate that crap.
Joey: It's good for you after a run on a hot day. Okay, well, uh... I'm just gonna--
Tripp: So I shouldn't even mention my mom to you?
Tripp: I said I wish I'd had a chance to get to know her, and you just changed the subject.
Joey: Man, you know the stuff she did. She tried ruining my parents' lives.
Tripp: Yeah, but that stuff she did, it doesn't fit with the lady I saw on these DVDs she left me. Look.
Joey: What is that?
Tripp: Pictures of her. I had them made off the DVDs. See? She looks... she looks nice.
Joey: She was good at that... being two different people. Look, I am sorry that that happened to you. And I'm glad you have a family now. I, uh... I've always wanted a brother. Dad seems really happy to have you around. Mom thinks you really have a shot at becoming a doctor. I know she's not your real mom, but take it from me, she's like the best one ever.
Tripp: Come on. She's no saint.
Joey: Where's that-- where's that coming from? I thought you liked her.
André: I just saw Gabi rushing out of the front door like something's wrong.
Chad: Yeah, she, uh-- she just found out that Dario got arrested last night.
André: Oh, yeah, of course.
Chad: You already knew?
André: Well, I saw it on the news. Well, that's why I came out to talk to you about.
Chad: What's to say?
André: Well, he deserves to be in jail for what he did.
Chad: I agree. Deserves to be in jail and as far away from Abby as possible.
André: Yes, and now that he's behind bars, there are flames to put out. There've been questions about our cybersecurity.
Chad: That's why I got Lucas on it.
André: Oh. Oh, so why don't you go and see Lucas at the office and consult with him?
Chad: Because the nanny's out shopping, and I got to be here when Thomas wakes up.
André: Oh no, let me do that. So why don't you just call Lucas and tell him you're on your way?
Chad: You trying to get rid of me?
Dario: So what are you thinking? Are you coming with me or not?
Abigail: What choice do I have?
Dario: You know, you should look at this way--at least you don't have to watch him making a life with my sister.
Abigail: They're gonna be raising my son!
Dario: That was your decision. Your baby-daddy killed someone. So you're either coming with me, or Chad goes in the joint. What's it gonna be?
Tripp: If your mom's such an angel, why is she always so mean to jade?
Joey: Not always. You should've seen her when jade was pregnant.
Tripp: Yeah, if she was pregnant with someone else's baby and not yours, it wouldn't have been like that.
Joey: Look, man, you can't buy into everything jade tells you about her.
Tripp: Look... Kayla's not my mom. Okay, and I'm--I'm never gonna think of her that way, no matter what you or Steve want.
Joey: Fine, but you have to admit, she's been really good to you. I mean, letting you shadow her at the hospital, always talking about how good you are with the patients-- I mean, I'm starting to get kind of pissed that she's bragging about you so much.
Tripp: Yeah. Yeah, well, don't worry about that. I'm no saint either.
Joey: I'm the furthest thing from it.
Tripp: Yeah, right.
Joey: Everything I put my mom and dad through... and now that things are finally looking better, my mom gets in trouble at the hospital. Them saying she made those mistakes, suspending her... it's already getting to her.
Tripp: No matter how that plays out, she'll still live a good life, right?
Joey: A good family life, maybe. But if she can't be a doctor anymore? That would kill her.
Kayla: Well... looks like you were right.
Steve: Okay, Shelly was the only nurse or doctor or resident or intern who was working all three of those shifts when the wrong dosages were given. And Kayla, you said that you reported her for bad-mouthing the hospital to patients, and that went in her personnel file.
Kayla: I know, I just can't believe it. She took a same version of the oath that I took, which was "first, do no harm." I can't believe she would risk a patient's life just to get back at me. I mean, who hates somebody that much? What is it?
Steve: Okay. Remember that background check I told you I was doing on Shelly? Well... [Sighs] It turns out she was fired from her last nursing job for insubordination. Looks like she's got a problem.
Kayla: Yeah. You think that she thinks that I was trying to get her fired from here?
Steve: And she tried to get to you first? Maybe. Now we've got means, motive, and opportunity. What we don't have is hard evidence.
André: I'm not trying to get rid of you.
Chad: No, see, I-- I know you too well, and I know you're trying to put on over on me. I'm not stupid, André.
André: But Chad, wouldn't you agree that it's not a good idea for Kate or myself to reassure the stockholders or clients the company is safe from a cyberattack? You need to do that, don't you agree? So how'd you like to be the boss?
Chad: Abe. Hey, how you doing? It's, uh, good to see you. What do we owe the pleasure?
Abe: Good to see you too. So, do you know why he asked me to stop by?
Chad: Uhhh, nope. But I just found out-- found out about it just now, so why don't, uh-- why don't you enlighten us both?
André: Well, Abe is not very pleased about the fact that... that his son Theo is working for the company.
Chad: Well, okay, I-- I told Theo to tell you days ago when I offered him the job.
Abe: Well, he was keeping it from me because he felt I wouldn't approve. And I don't.
André: Well, I'm sorry if-- if we've become between you and Theo.
Chad: Okay, look. Abe, the--offering Theo the job was my idea. The kid's a genius when it comes to computers.
André: But you are his father. And if you want Theo to sever ties with the company, all you have to do is return the laptop. That way, we're able to remove the DiMera software from that, and then that will be that.
Okay, wait, wh-why do you have Theo's computer?
Abe: I took it because I wanted to find out what he was doing for you.
Chad: Did you figure it out?
Chad: This is why Theo was here last night.
André: Yes, he didn't want you to know about the situation. He was afraid you might be disappointed in him.
Abe: So "the situation" is already a mess.
André: Well, no. As I keep telling you, all we need is the laptop back.
Abe: You know, I am as anxious to get the DiMera material off that laptop as you are.
André: Then... you will return it to us?
André: If it means that Theo will no longer be working for you, absolutely.
André: Yeah, well, absolutely. Think of him as being terminated.
Chad: Don't, whoa. Okay. Not so fast. Let's just...
Dario: You'd better start packing.
Dario: Tell me where I'm going. I have to get on the plane.
Abigail: I mean, do you not understand how hard this is for me? Dario, you are asking me to choose between Chad in prison and abandoning my son!
[Knock on door]
Dario: Clock's ticking.
Gabi: What the hell were you thinking stealing DiMera enterprises' money?!
Dario: I guess you talked to Rafe, huh?
Gabi: Yes, I had to talk to somebody; your face is the newspaper! What the hell were you thinking?
Dario: I don't want to start with you right now, Gabi.
Gabi: You are no better than papi!
Dario: It's not the right time, okay?
Gabi: What is this? Oh, my gosh, you weren't gonna say good--you were leaving?! And you weren't even gonna say goodbye to me? What about Arianna? Huh?
Dario: I--I was gonna call you guys, but everything was moving so fast--
Gabi: But you were pushing drugs in Mexico.
Dario: No! No, I was not pushing drugs!
Gabi: Then why is there a drug lord trying to kill you?!
Dario: Did Rafe tell you that you?!
Gabi: You didn't answer my question. Am I ever gonna see you again?
Dario: Gabi, I am not happy about this going down, but-- but it just happened, okay?
Gabi: No, it did not just happen, Dario. You made it happen!
Dario: And now I have to live with it. What do you want me to tell you? What do you want me to say?!
Gabi: Rafe told me that you married him so that he could get his green card. Is that true?
Abigail: That's right.
Gabi: You might've saved his life.
Abigail: Yeah, that's what they told me.
Gabi: Right, so Dario is not getting deported. That's the upside. And you are also out of this.
Dario: Actually... Abigail doesn't want to get out of this. She's coming with me. Isn't that right, honey?
Gabi: Okay, why the hell would you go off with Dario?
Abigail: Well, the marriage did start out as a favor. But then it turned into more than that.
Gabi: Even though you know he's been doing illegal things? Even though he stole that money and he's been working with a drug lord?
Abigail: Dario wants to start over. He wants a new life.
Gabi: What is really happening here?
Dario: Abigail... knows how much I love her. She makes me a better man. Her marriage is over. Chad is with you now. And she wants a chance at her own future, hm? So... who knows? Maybe--maybe this won't be forever, huh?
Abigail: And it is killing me to leave Thomas, but I don't really feel like I can take him away from everything that he knows. And Dario's right, you know. This probably isn't gonna be forever. So... I know that Chad is a really great father. And you will love him like he's your own.
Gabi: What?! Yes, of course, but... do you understand what you are making this woman do? I mean, if you mess this up, Dario, I will kill you.
Dario: Would you stop? Would you stop? Stop busting my chops. Come here, come here. Give me a hug.
Gabi: Okay, I--I got to go.
Dario: You made the right decision.
Chad: Okay, look. [Stammering] I didn't offer Theo the job just because he's good with computers. I did it because he's our sister's kid. He's blood; he's part of the DiMera family, and he has as much of a right to be a part of DiMera enterprises as I do.
Abe: You bout know... what that man did to Lexie. He manipulated her into doing terrible things. Things that weren't in her nature.
Chad: And I-- I understand that. Okay? I love Lexie too. But my--my father is not running the company anymore. I am, and do you really think that I would--I would offer Theo a job to work for me if I didn't plan on running things on the up and up?
Abe: You've set yourself a lofty goal... that you haven't always met. And you. I know you think the "up and up" is for suckers.
André: I wouldn't think of coming between you and Theo. But if we're going to assure the public that the company's safe from a cyberattack, then we need the information on the computer.
Abe: You want that computer pretty badly, huh?
André: Yes, enough to get lawyers involved.
Chad: Look, enough, enough. André may be okay with letting Theo go, but I certainly am not.
Abe: Well, if you want that computer back... fire André instead. (Vo) more "doing chores for mom"
Tripp: Ah, thank you. So... Steve's trying to clear your mom.
Joey: Yeah, he's obsessed with it.
Tripp: He tell you how it's going?
Joey: Said, uh, the board's gonna make a decision today, so...
Tripp: So they can clear her?
Joey: Yeah, although they're still making her clean out her office in case they don't.
Tripp: That sucks.
Joey: Yeah. Dad's helping her with it.
Tripp: Probably doesn't want her to do it alone.
Joey: Yeah, that, and he said there's some stuff he wants to check out on her office computer.
Tripp: What kind of stuff?
Joey: He thinks someone set her up.
Tripp: Right, yeah. I know.
Joey: And dad's a damn good pi, so if someone was trying to screw mom over, he's gonna find out who, and he's gonna find out how they did it.
Tripp: Oh, I just remembered. I was supposed to do something today.
Joey: Oh. You need some help, or--
Chad: No, no. Uh, catch you later.
Joey: All right.
Chad: Look, I--I'm not gonna fire André.
Abe: Then you won't get the laptop back!
Chad: [Sighs wearily]
André: We keep trying to accommodate you.
Abe: I will not have you and my son working together!
Chad: C-can I please-- can I--can I just say something, please? Look... this is not about who Theo does and does not work with. Your son Theo, he's an amazing kid. He's brilliant. He's--he's moral. He has a great heart. I mean, he's a carver. He's not gonna let any man push him around. So I think you need to give him credit for that and allow him to have an active part in living his own legacy. And I can assure you that he has not done anything that I wouldn't approve of, or you.
Abe: Can you... can you say the same thing?
Chad: Look, can you just give Theo a chance? Please? And allow me a chance to show you that I have his best interests at heart?
Dario: I'm glad you're finally seeing things my way.
Abigail: I'll go with you, Dario. But I'm never gonna love you.
Dario: Eli. You got news?
Eli: I do. Your witness protection deal's been approved.
Dario: It has? That's--that's fantastic.
Eli: Now I need you to live up to your end of the bargain. I need you to come down to headquarters, packed, ready to leave, and I need you to hand over any evidence that you say you have against your partner.
Dario: Absolutely. We're on our way.
Dario: The deal includes my wife, right?
Eli: Yeah, yeah. Right.
Dario: Good. I'll see you soon. It's all set up.
Abigail: And you already told them that I would be a part of it?
Dario: I figured you'd come around, and you did. We'd better hurry up and finish packing. Eli wants us at headquarters right away.
Kayla: "Thank you for giving my children their mother back. Words cannot express what you mean to my whole family."
Steve: Baby... you know what? Seems like half of the people in this town owe their lives to you. That's all the more reason we've got to clear you and get you back doing what you do so well.
Kayla: I hope you're right.
Steve: You know what? I think there's a chance the board can make this be over today.
Kayla: Can I let myself hope for that?
Steve: Well, if they don't do it, I will. Okay? Listen, one way or another, we're gonna get you back helping people. Promise.
Abe: [Sighs] I hate to admit it, but I do see what you're saying.
André: Well, if you're going to allow Theo to remain on the job, he can't do his job without his computer.
Abe: Hm. Well, I will have to think about all of this.
Chad: The hell is it with you and this computer?
André: Hm? Oh. I don't know what you're talking about. I have so many calls to make.
Chad: Hey. [Clears throat] Hi. So, uh, did you-- did you find out what's going on with Dario?
Gabi: Listen, I don't even know where--where to start. Okay, Dario's out on bail.
Chad: So, how--how did he get away with that?
Gabi: He made a deal with the feds, and now he's going into witness protection.
Chad: So he's gonna-- he's just gonna get off for stealing all that money from countess w?
Gabi: That's the least of our worries.
Chad: Not to me.
Gabi: Um, Chad, Abigail is going with him.
Gabi: She told me herself, okay?
Chad: She, she-- [Sputtering] She can't. She can't do this. She said she's gonna take Thomas with her?!
Gabi: She's not.
Gabi: She doesn't want to take him away from you, and she told me to love him as if he were mine. I...
Chad: Uh, that's ridiculous.
Gabi: I know.
Chad: And she's not gonna abandon him again. So where'd, uh--where'd you say you saw 'em?
Gabi: At the martin house. And it looked like they were packing.
Gabi: No, Chad, listen.
Chad: I got to talk to her.
Gabi: No, I have to tell you something--
Chad: See you. No, I'll be back in a minute.
Gabi: Listen to me, I have to tell you something about why they're married...
Abigail: I stored my winter clothes in the basement.
Dario: You don't need that stuff; we're done with winter.
Abigail: It's witness protection, it's not a cruise.
Dario: I made my terms very clear.
Abigail: Like you did with me.
Dario: Will you just hurry up?
Abigail: If you're in such a hurry, go pack my bathroom stuff.
Dario: Whatever it takes.
André: What's going on there?
Abigail: Look, I have to talk fast. Dario hasn't said anything to the police about Chad yet. Did you guys get the laptop?
André: He's holding onto it until we agree to fire Theo. And Chad won't have it.
Abigail: Oh, my god, André, I had to tell him that I was gonna go into witness protection with him.
André: No, you can't do that!
Abigail: Well, what am I supposed to do? We're on our way to the police station, and they gave him the phone back, so what am I gonna do, tell him I can't go? Then he's just gonna show 'em the picture!
André: All right, listen.
Abigail: Oh my god, I don't--
André: Try not to panic. I'll think of something.
Abigail: Please hurry.
Dario: Who are you talking to?
Abigail: Oh, I was just saying goodbye to my mother.
Dario: Let me see.
Abigail: She's a reporter. She's got to be careful.
Dario: Why were you talking to her?
Abigail: I wanted her to bring Thomas to the police station. Did you expect me to leave Salem without saying goodbye in person?
Dario: No. No, of course not. Look, I know... I know I've hurt you. I--I know I've made some mistakes, but I am... I'm gonna make this up to you. I promise. Let's go.
Joey: I'm so sorry, Ava.
Steve: All right, I'm gonna go see what else I can dig up on Shelly. You hang in there.
Steve: Hey, Tripp. I didn't know you were working today.
Tripp: I'm not. I was actually looking for you. Joey said you'd probably be here.
Steve: So what's up?
Tripp: I was just wondering how it was going with Kayla. Can you prove Shelly was the one who set her up?
Steve: I was just helping Kayla pack up her office. Saw a big stack of letters patients wrote to her over the years thanking her for how much she helped them.
Tripp: Had to be hard.
Steve: Yeah. Kayla is the best doctor in this whole damn place. And somebody is doing this to her. Maybe it's Shelly, maybe someone else. But I'll tell you something. I'm not gonna stop until I find out who it is. And I'm gonna make 'em pay.
Eli: Yeah, I know. I got it.
Rafe: What's going on?
Eli: Dario and Abigail, they're on their way down here. They're going into witness protection.
Rafe: They're what? Why in god's name would she go with him?
Eli: That's between them.
Rafe: You're nervous. My brother must be turning state's evidence against a pretty big fish.
Eli: I can't say anything.
Rafe: You just did. Does Abigail know what she's getting herself into? She's leaving her family and friends behind.
Eli: All I know... is what Dario told me.
Rafe: Something's not right. We're missing something.
Dario: This is gonna be the start of a whole new life for you too. You can finally let go of the past.
Chad: Hey. You two going somewhere?
