Anjelica: So? Were you able to see bonnie lockhart?

Hattie: Was I able to? Look who you're talking to.

Anjelica: Yeah, well, that's exactly why I'm asking.

Hattie: Hey, give me a little credit here. Me and bon-bon, we go back a long way.

Anjelica: All right, does that mean she is on board with our plan?

Hattie: Yeah. She's on board. She can't wait for a chance to get back at old red.

Anjelica: Mm, excellent.

Hattie: 'Cause what woman wouldn't want to get back at the dame that stole her man, huh, anj?

Anjelica: Why don't we just focus on what's next, hattie? And that is you using your influence to get bonnie released from statesville so she can go replace adrienne. Can you do that?

Hattie: Piece of cake. But... not till I switch places with marlena.

Marlena: Hey, just the man I'm looking for.

Roman: Well, that is a greeting that never gets old. You look pretty chipper.

Marlena: Thanks. Things are good. John's coming home today, so I, um... a little marketing.

Roman: [Laughs] That is great.

Marlena: Mm-hmm. Oh, and you know what? I've got something for you. It's from sami. Well, actually, it's kind of from the kids.

Roman: Huh! Oh, my god. Oh! Johnny and allie. What a great photo.

Marlena: Yeah.

Roman: They're all grown up.

Marlena: Yes. Yes, yes.

Roman: Oh, man.

Marlena: Frame it.

Roman: You know what? That's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna frame it, hang it up. I miss those kids.

Marlena: I know. I do too. How are you?

Roman: Yeah, I'm okay. You know. Worried about my sister. She was here earlier, actually. Uh, accounting's never been my strong suit, so she's been giving me a hand with that, uh, while she's on suspension.

Marlena: I heard about that.

Roman: Damn. I just never thought it would get this far.

Marlena: I didn't either. Nobody at the hospital thought it would happen either. Kayla is such a wonderful doctor, and they are just trying to push her out.

Steve: Hey.

Kayla: You guys didn't need to wait for me.

Steve: You think we're gonna let you go through this alone? Give me that.

Kayla: Thank you. Both of you.

Steve: You know, I was just telling tripp, when we find out who's responsible for this, there's gonna be hell to pay.

Kayla: Steve, you know how grateful I am that you have so much faith in me and that you want to be my hero. But it doesn't really work like that here. There are certain protocols in place just for this kind of situation, and we are just gonna have to let this investigation run its course.

Steve: I'm sorry. I can't do that.

Kayla: Please.

Steve: I'm not gonna stand around here and watch you get railroaded. Now, I'm not leaving here until I get some answers. Are you with me or not?

Kayla: [Chuckles softly] I'm with you.

Steve: Okay. Let's go.

Tripp: Wait.

Steve: Hmm?

[Tense music]

Joey: I'm so sorry.

Claire: Joey.

Joey: Claire, hey.

Claire: What are you doing with those?

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?

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

Chad: Well, gabi just told me that, uh, dario is going into witness protection and seems to believe that you're going with him.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."

[Soft orchestration]

Tripp: Maybe I should go with you.

Kayla: No, tripp, you do not need to put yourself in the middle of all this.

Tripp: No, you've done so much to help me learn what it means to be a doctor, and I want to do what I can to help you stay one.

Kayla: Thank you. You have no idea how much your support means to me.

Steve: Means a lot to me too. You know, maybe your presence would help kayla. So yeah... why don't you come with us?

[Soft dramatic music]

Marlena: How is kayla holding up?

Roman: Well, as well as can be expected.

Marlena: I'm sure the hospital will be very thorough in their investigation.

Roman: Did anybody say anything to you?

Marlena: Me? Oh, no.

Roman: Well, I'm sure steve will get to the bottom of it if the hospital doesn'T.

Marlena: I'm sure he will.

Roman: Yeah. How about that mission to clear sonny? Any news on that front?

Marlena: Well, I've only spoken to john once since he's been gone, and, uh, well, he didn't say anything. But I'm--I'm sure we'll know more as soon as he gets home. Which should be, I guess, about an hour. What? What are you looking at?

Roman: I don't know. There'S... something in your voice. Look, I, uh, may be overstepping here, but is everything okay between you and john?

Dario: Listen, you want to come in here acting all heated--

Chad: I'm not talking to you.

Dario: I don't care; you're getting in my wife's face.

Chad: And I want to hear it from her.

Dario: I'm telling you--

Abigail: Please, dario, enough. Please don't make this any harder for me.

Chad: Abby, you can't really be--really be thinking about this.

Abigail: I know this is really hard to understand--

Chad: What are you-- that's--that's not an answer, okay? Look, I don't know how he got the deal that he got, and honestly, I don't give a damn. What I care about is my son.

Abigail: He's my son too.

Chad: Yeah, well, not if you're going to abandon him like this. My belly pain and constipation?

Roman: Long-distance relationships are not easy. They're hard.

Marlena: Well, this is not a l-- maybe this is a long-distance relationship.


Roman: Is that the worst thing in world?

Marlena: Well...oh, gol. No, I guess--i guess not. And I have such great respect for john's commitment to his work. But you know what? Rrr. He made a commitment to me too, and I-I...[Sighs] I get lonely sometimes, you know?

Roman: You know what? You'll work it out. Strange as it seems, I have always believed that you two are the perfect couple.

Marlena: Thanks. What about you? Is there some lucky woman in your life?

[Dramatic music]

Shelly: What do you want?

Kayla: Uh, we just want to talk to you for a minute, shelly.

Shelly: Not like this. No, I won't be ambushed by your husband and your little shadow.

Steve: Hey, you don't have to talk to kayla. You can talk to me instead.

Shelly: And why would i do that?

Steve: Because I'm convinced that someone in this room knows who's responsible for what's been happening to kayla's patients. And we just want to find out who that someone is.

Claire: Do you want to talk about it?

Joey: Those are, uh-- those are tripp's photos. He printed them off of an old dvd that ava made for him, uh, before he was born, so...

Claire: Why would he show these to you now?

Joey: Uh, we were just hanging out, talking about jade and, uh, how she has a second chance to reconnect with her mom and how, uh, tripp's never gonna have that with ava, so...

Claire: That made you feel really guilty... about what you did to her.

Abigail: Please, just don't ask me any questions.

Chad: I have every right to ask you these questions.

Dario: Abigail, we have to go. The fbi is waiting for us at the station.

Chad: We're not done here.

Dario: The hell you aren'T.

Abigail: Hey, stop, you guys!

Chad: Get your hands off me!

Dario: You say good-bye to abigail. You are history, chad. Do you understand me? Because after tonight, you're never gonna see her again.

Chad: Do you have any idea who I am?

Abigail: Stop!

Chad: Huh? You might not think I have it in me, but believe me, if you do not back off, I will kill you.

Abigail: Stop it, you guys!

Dario: Oh, I know. I know who you are. You're a dimera. Murder's in your blood. And I have no doubt that you would have no problem murdering someone who stood in your way. Copd makes it hard to breathe.

[Dramatic music]

Shelly: I'm listening.

Steve: We have reason to believe that the charts in question were altered after the fact to make it look like kayla was negligent.

Shelly: I suppose that's possible. Are you accusing me of changing those entries?

Steve: Well...

Kayla: We're just trying to figure out what happened. I know that you were angry with me after I disciplined you.

Shelly: So you think, to get back at you, I would put innocent lives at risk?

Steve: Well, it wouldn't be the first time you've had issues with an authority figure at work.

Shelly: Excuse me?

Steve: We know you were fired from your last job for insubordination.

Shelly: Who told you that?

Steve: And it seems like you, uh, aren't able to take responsibility for your mistakes.

Shelly: What mistakes have I made?

Steve: Are you saying you've never put any of kayla's patients at risk? We have a witness.

Shelly: You're out of your mind. I'm not gonna let you pin this tragedy on me, no way.

Steve: Why didn't you tell burns that my son tripp is the one who stopped you from nearly killing hope brady?

Shelly: Is that what you think happened?

Claire: Look, joey... um, I know that you never really said that it wasn't your dad who killed ava. I mean, jade did sort of let it slip once. And you admitted that what she said was true. But, joey, I promise, whatever you say will stay between us.

[Door opens]

Theo: Hey, guys.

Joey: I, uh... I should go. I got to get to the pub.

Theo: Is joey okay?

Claire: Yeah, he's fine.

Theo: Wait, you're leaving too?

Claire: Do you think i dress like this for fun?

[Scoffs] I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't mean it to sound that way. I really do miss being your friend. And I miss being able to talk to you. I mean, in a perfect world, we'd be more than friends. But...the world's not perfect, is it?

Theo: I wish we could still talk too.

Claire: If something's wrong, you can tell me.

[Dramatic music]

Theo: Oh, my god. Um, someone I care about is in trouble, serious trouble, and I can't do anything to help him.

Abigail: Enough! Stop it, you guys! Stop it! Get over there.

Chad: You're dead.

Dario: Yeah? Yeah? Yeah.

Abigail: What are you doing?

Dario: [Laughs] I'm just letting chad know that he's right. He does have it in him to kill someone.

Abigail: Okay, well, if you do that, then you're gonna lose any leverage you have on him-- and me. Because if that man finds out what he did, he's gonna go to the police, and he's gonna save sonny, and there will be no reason for me to go with you.

Dario: Oh, you'd just do anything to sacrifice for him, wouldn't you?

Abigail: Just go put the bags in the car, please.

[Tense music]

[Soft dramatic music]

I got to go with him. That's just the way that it's got to be.

Roman: [Laughs] No, there is definitely not anybody in my life right now.

Marlena: Well, that's just too bad.

Roman: No, it's not. It's actually very fine. I mean, come on, I've broken enough hearts along the way. Got to give that a rest right now.

Marlena: I wouldn't give it a rest for too lonG. You know, you have a lot to give.

Roman: Well, I don't know about that.

Marlena: I do. And who knows? The right woman may walk through that door anytime now.

Anjelica: Hattie, you know, I need your assurance that once you replace marlena, you're not gonna become--

Hattie: So fixated on roman brady that I forget what we're doing.

Anjelica: You got it. Now, if that happens, I tell you, I'm gonna pull the rug out from under you so fast, your head is gonna spin.

Hattie: Hey, come on, I got this.

Anjelica: [Sighs]

Hattie: [Gasps] Get out. Get out. My bff got me a new car?

Anjelica: No, what do I look like, oprah? No, this is the keys to marlena's town house-- I should now say your town house.

Marlena: Well, I should go. John's plane is landing soon.

Roman: All right, well, thanks for bringing this photo of the kids by.

Marlena: Oh, no, it's my pleasure.

Roman: And good luck tonight.

Marlena: [Chuckles] Thank you. And you take care of yourself.

Roman: I will. Thank you. Bye.

[Suspenseful music]

She's headed home. You're all clear.

Anjelica: This is it, hattie. Don't blow it. Go. Go. Go.

[Sighs] I make it easy to save $600 on car insurance,

Tripp: Well, it's not like I was watching you, waiting for you to mess up. It's just when i looked at hope's chart, I noticed the dosage was off, and that's when I yelled at you to stop.

Steve: You don't see it like that?

Shelly: Let's be clear on what really happened in that room, okay? Number one, I was following physician's orders as prescribed by dr. Johnson in the chart. Number two, I did check it, and that dosage wasn't out of the normally prescribed range for that medication. Do you know how I know that? Because I've been doing this job since before you could tie your shoes. Now, I've been cleared of any and all wrongdoing by this hospital. So either you made that mistake, doctor, or somebody else altered those charts. Either way, it wasn't me.

Steve: Would you mind telling us exactly why you were fired from your last job?

Shelly: I was fired because I spoke up. You want to call that insubordination, go right ahead. But I can't work for people I don't respect. And I will not bite my tongue just to spare somebody's feelings.

Kayla: Are you saying you respect me?

Shelly: Of course I do. Our differences lie in our personalities, not based on how we do our jobs. You're a damn good doctor and administrator.

Kayla: I didn't know you felt that way.

Shelly: Well, I do. And I would never try to undermine your career or compromise a patient's care just to settle a score. That would be unconscionable. Look, if you made a few mistakes, so be it. But I do hope they can find a way to keep you, 'cause it would be a real loss around here otherwise.

Kayla: Thank you.

Shelly: But if you were set up... I hope they catch the bastard and make a real example of them. May I go now?

Kayla: [Softly] Yeah. I think she's telling the truth. You?

Steve: I'm not sure yet. Hey, tripp, you were the first one to point a finger at her. What do you think? You think she's the one who set kayla up?

Claire: Theo, you can trust me, okay? No matter what has happened between us, that won't change, ever.

Theo: I know.

Claire: Okay, tell me. Who are you worried about?

Theo: [Sighs] Chad. Okay, look, he's in a lot of trouble.

Claire: What kind of trouble?

Theo: I...

Claire: Theo, what did he do?

Chad: Abby, wait! Hey, abby, would you just wait for a second, please?

Abigail: Please let me go, please.

Chad: I can'T. How am I supposed to do that? I can'T.

Abigail: I don't know what you want me to say, chad.

Chad: I want you to tell me the truth, abby. Look, I can see--I can see it in your eyes, okay, and I can hear it in your voice. I know you don't want to do this.

Abigail: Don't tell me what I want to do.

Chad: Well, then what are you gonna do? You're just gonna-- you're gonna leave without-- without even saying good-bye to our son?

Abigail: No, no. I was gonna have my mom take him to the police station.

Chad: The police-- what, the police--what are-- great idea. What are you gonna do? You're gonna go, "hey, hey, kid, sorry I got to run. I got to--I got to run away with my new husband. No, I'm not gonna see you again, but hey, maybe I could get one of the nice police officers to turn the sirens on, get the lights going. Little light show for you, and then I don't have to hear you crying on my way out."

Abigail: Why are you doing this?

Chad: Why are you doing this?

Abigail: Why are you doing this to me?

Chad: Our son needs his mother, abby!

Abigail: Well, I want what is best for him.

Chad: Look, there's-- I know. I know I can-- there is something you're not telling me, okay? Just look at me. Just tell me. Why are you doing this? Why?

Abigail: I'm doing it for you.

She's nationally recognized

Tripp: I'm not sure what to say.

[Clears throat]

Steve: Well, either you think nurse shelly set kayla up, or you don'T.

Tripp: Well, it has to be her, right? I mean, we all know kayla wouldn't make these types of mistakes, and nobody else here has any other reason besides shelly to frame her.

Steve: And no one else had direct access to your tablet. And we already checked the, uh, shifts in question. You and shelly were the only two on.

Kayla: Well, what if someone else on the staff who didn't have access to the tablets found some way to hack into the system?

Steve: Then they would have your password available to them.

Kayla: I know it's a long shot.

Steve: Well, if a long shot is all we have, I still have to check it out.

Tripp: I'm coming with you.

[Clears throat]

Steve: You gonna be all right?

Kayla: Yeah. Yeah, I'll go--I'll go turn in my badge and my keys. Listen, thank you both for giving me hope that there's a chance I could be cleared of these charges.

Steve: You will be cleared. Love you.

Kayla: [Softly] Love you.

[Tense music]

Roman: Joey. Not that I don't appreciate a thorough job, but you've been bussing this table for five minutes now.

Joey: Oh. Yeah, sorry.

Roman: Something on your mind?

Joey: Um, just thinking about what's going on with mom at the hospital. You know, that job means everything to her, so...

Roman: Yes, it does. But, you know, with your dad's help, I'm sure they'll get that mess cleaned up in no time at all. Unlike this table.

Joey: [Laughs] Yeah.

Roman: Joey, I was a cop for a long time, and I got pretty damn good at figuring out when there's more going on with someone than they're saying. And I am getting a real strong sense of that with you right now.

Joey: I'm fine.

Roman: All right. In that case, humor me. Have a seat. You just missed the finest psychiatrist in salem, so you're gonna have to settle for the finest bartender in salem. So talk to me. Tell me what's going on in your mind.

Theo: All right, look, if I tell you what chad did, you have to promise me that--

[Knock at door]

Claire: Okay, you know, just ignore that. Whoever it is is gonna go away.

Abe: Theo, it's your father.

Claire: [Sighs] Mr. Carver, hi.

Abe: Claire.

Claire: Hi.

Abe: I'd like to have a moment alone with my son if you don't mind.

Claire: Sure. I'm around later if you want to talk, okay?

Theo: Okay, thank you. So... what do you want to talk about?

Abe: This. And what you've been doing for the dimeras.

Chad: You're doing it for me? What does-- what does that even mean?

Abigail: Chad, you're a good man, and you're a good father, and I know you're gonna take great care of our son--

Chad: Hey, what are you doing? Our son--our son and everyone who loves you, okay-- your mother, jj-- we need you here, okay? With us. Don't go. And whatever's going on, I promise you, you and me, we're gonna fix it. We can fix it...together. I promise. (Vo) more "doing chores for mom"

[Tender music]

[Door slams]

Marlena: I'm upstairs, honey!

Roman: Joey. Please talk to me.

Joey: It just hurts... knowing how much tripp misses his mom, even though he never knew her. Now because of what I did, he's never gonna get that chance.

Roman: Okay. Look. I understand what you're going through. And I know it's gonna be very painful. But listen to me very closely. Joey, you are a good man. You got your whole life in front of you. And as difficult as it is, at some point, you need to deal with this. You need to make peace with this.

Joey: I've been trying. I've been going to therapy. It's getting better, but... lately the guilt is just-- it just keeps getting worse.

Roman: Okay. What changed?

Joey: The closer I get to my brother, the more I realize how much I hurt him.

Steve: Hey, claire.

Claire: Uncle steve, hi.

Steve: Hey, would you happen to have the, uh, schedule for the candy stripers back there?

Claire: Um, uh, yeah, I do. It's, uh-- it's right here, actually.

Steve: Can I see it?

Claire: Um...

Steve: It's to help your aunt kayla.

Claire: Yeah, well, anything for aunt kayla. Just please do not tell anyone, or I'll be in big trouble, okay?

Steve: Okay.

Tripp: What's up?

Claire: Um, why does your dad want the candy striper schedule, and why do you look so worried about it?

Tripp: Well, you know how kayla's been suspended, right? We're trying to figure out if someone purposely messed with her charts to set her up.

Claire: Who in their right minds would mess with a patient's life to make aunt kayla look bad? That's disgusting.

Tripp: Well, I'm not sure if it was somebody else. I've been shadowing her a lot, and if I'm being totally honest, she has been really out of it lately. I don't know if it was the whole jade and joey thing or something else is on her mind, but she hasn't been focused on her patients at all.

Claire: Okay, why are you telling me this?

Tripp: Because I don't know what to do. Should I go to the hospital board of inquiry and tell them?

Claire: Oh, my god! No! What? No, just let your dad handle this, okay? Aunt kayla is an amazing doctor. She's smart, and she's caring--

Tripp: Hey, kayla's not as wonderful as everybody else thinks she is.

[Tense music]

Abe: I know how the dimeras operate in ways that you don'T. And if they start to lead you down the same path as your mother--

Theo: I'm not mom.

Abe: No. You're not. You're your own man. And I need to recognize that, don't I? Let you make your own choices. And hope that I have taught you to make the right ones. I didn't look at what's on here.

Theo: You didn't?

Abe: I won't deny that I was tempted. But at some point, I have to show my trust in you with more than just words. I shouldn't have taken it. I'm sorry.

Theo: Dad...

[Sighs] I love you. You're my family. But so are the dimeras. And I'm gonna do what I can to help when they ask me, just like I would for you. Okay?

Abe: That's fair enough. Can I get a hug?

[Both laugh] Ah, thank you. Thank you. You take care, son.

Theo: I will.

[Soft dramatic music]


[Tense music]

Abigail: God, you're making this so much harder.

Chad: What are you--harder? What, is it--is it supposed to be easy, walking away from your family? I mean, I'm--I'm honestly asking you, because you're the one that's done it before, so--

Abigail: This is not like it was before.

Chad: Really? It feels like it-- it feels like it's what it was before because you're using all the same excuses. You're telling me that you're doing it for me, that me and thomas and your family, we're all gonna be better off without you.

Abigail: Chad, you're just twisting it around. That's not what it is.

Chad: Well, no, I'm not. You're acting like you're making a big sacrifice by leaving. You're not. It's selfish.

Abigail: What do you want?

Chad: I want stay. I want you to stay. And you want to know why it's so hard for you to leave? Because it's wrong. You're not supposed to be leaving.

Abigail: No, no, no.

Chad: Life is hard, abby. Life is hard a lot of the time, but you don't just give up, okay? You don't--you don't turn your back on the people that you love, and you sure as hell don't run away because you think that life is gonna be easier.

Abigail: No, no.

Chad: I promise you, it's not.

Abigail: That's not why I'm running away.

Chad: Okay. You know what? Fine. You know what? Maybe--maybe i'm, uh-- maybe I'm gonna be just fine without you, and maybe-- maybe thomas is gonna grow up and he's gonna have a wonderful life and-- and when he gets older, he's gonna ask his dad, "what happened to mom?" I'm gonna tell him the truth, and I'm gonna say that "she abandoned you because she thought it was for the best." I mean... I can't believe you're putting us through this again, abby!

Abigail: What? What?

Chad: Me and you, you know? Me and you. I can't-- I just--I can't stop thinking about you, and--and--and... I can't stop thinking about the two of us and--and-- and what we were, what we had, what we are and what we should have been and what we could have been and everything. I can'T. It just--it--it-- it consumes me. You know, it's like you just-- you complicate everything, always, you know? And then I can't even-- with me and gabi, I can't even-- you're constantly getting in between us, and I can't move on because--

Abigail: How? I'm not even-- how?

Chad: What do you mean, how?

[Soft dramatic music]

She found this. And she confronted me about it, and she asked me why I still had it. I didn't know what to say. I just--I didn't have an answer.

Abigail: I'm sorry.

Chad: You don't have to be sorry, because if-- if you leave here, then I'm done, and that's all. It's done. If you-- if you leave here, I'm done with you, and none of it meant-- none of it--none of it meant a thing, I promise you. Fine. You know what? You know what? Leave. It's fine. You know what? And maybe for once, I'll finally--I'll be able to just-- I'll be able to move on with my life. It's great. Why don't you go ahead? Leave. Leave! You may as well! You're dead to me! And this time, why don't you do me a favor? Stay dead, please.
