Provided By Suzanne

Kayla: Anything appeal to you?

Steve: [Clears throat]

[Dramatic music]

Steve: Uh, you know me, baby. I'm not a big fan of change. I'll just stick with my usual.

Kayla: Well, I hate to mess up your routine, grandpa, but there's no more french dip on the menu. You have to pick something else.

Steve: [Clears throat]

Victor: Oh, hello, brady.

Brady: Granddad.

Victor: Tell me you have some good news for me.

Brady: What kind of good news are you looking for?

Victor: Please tell me you've got that piece of garbage eve out of our lives for good.

Chloe: Eve, it's nice to see you...clothed.

Eve: [Chuckling] Hey. Listen, I want to explain what you walked in on the other day.

Chloe: No, you know what? You don't have to explain anything. Wait, you know what? Actually, you--you kind of dO. What exactly was that that I walked in on?

Eve: Wasn't it pretty obvious? When a guy and a gal like each other, they naturally--

Chloe: Okay, see, that's the part that doesn't make sense to me. I thought that you and brady hated each other.

Eve: You know what? I thought so too, hmm.

Chloe: So how the hell did you end up in bed together?

[Knock at door]

Hope: Come in. Hey, jj. Isn't tomorrow your first day back?

Jj: Yeah, but I-I need to talk to you about something.

Hope: Yeah, of course. Please. Sounds serious.

Jj: It is. I came here to tender my resignation. I'm leaving the force.

Eli: Are you okay?

Lani: Yeah, I'm fine.

Eli: You seem like you got something going on. Tell me.

Lani: I'm pregnant?

Kayla: You are.

Lani: Are you sure?

Kayla: I am.

Eli: Lani. Come on, you know you can tell me anything.

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

[Soft orchestration]

[Soft dramatic music]

Hope: I was really looking forward to you coming back to work.

Jj: I'm sorry I'm quitting on such short notice.

Hope: Is this about theo?

Jj: It's about a lot of things. But yes, the shooting made me look at the job in a different way.

Hope: Internal affairs cleared you of any wrongdoing.

Jj: That does not change the fact that I pulled that trigger and shot an innocent man. I never want to be in that position--to kill--ever again.

Eli: Look, lani, I want to help you, but... I can't unless you tell me what's going on.

Lani: I just came back from the hospital.

Eli: Is it theo? Did he have a setback?

Lani: No, not exactly.

Eli: Not e--

[Stammering] What do you mean?

Lani: He's still suffering complications from the stroke.

Eli: What kind of complications?

Lani: Weakness in his limbs, difficulty walking.

Eli: Is there anything that they can do?

Lani: He's been approved for a medical trial that kayla recommended. But it's in south africa.

Eli: [Sighs] I know this is gonna be hard. But if it's the best thing for his recovery, then... he's got to go.

Lani: Whatever's best for my little brother.

Eli: I know you're bummed. I get it. But, lani, it's not forever.

Lani: I know. And me and my dad can go visit him.

Eli: So that's not the only thing that's making you upset.

Lani: No.

Eli: Lani? Come on, don't you want to get it out in the open?

Lani: I do, yeah.

Eli: Then tell me. What is it?

Lani: We need to talk about what happened between you and me on christmas eve.

Depression is a tangle of multiple symptoms

Kayla: I have never seen you take such a long time to make a decision. It's ju--it's just lunch. Come on.

Roman: [Laughing] Hey. That was a lot of fun.

Kayla: Oh, wow. Look at that. I guess that explains why roman upgraded the menu.

Steve: I wonder if he added caviar and borscht.

[Roman and anna laughing]

Roman: Hey!

Steve: Don't move a muscle. Maybe they won't notice.

Roman: Sis! I didn't notice you there.

Kayla: Yeah, no wonder.

Anna: [Laughs]

Steve: Hello.

Anna: Hello, steve. Hi, kayla.

Kayla: Anna, I heard you were in town.

Anna: Yeah, well, you should have seen your brother out on the ice rink just now. He was holding my hand, guiding me around like a little angel. It was truly magical.

Kayla: Since when do you go ice-skating in the middle of the day?

Roman: Well, our grandson dared us. I've never been one to pass up a dare. We even got a selfie to prove it. Listen, I was gonna get anna something special off the menu, and, uh, she loves seared tuna.

Anna: Mmm.

Steve: Oh, that sounds good. I'll have that.

Anna: Lovely. We'll join you. I'll just go freshen up.

Roman: Okay.

[Quirky music]

Okay, all right. I see the looks. All right, let me have it.

Kayla: Well, jennifer told me that anna was your date for new year's eve.

Roman: Yeah, she decided to extend her trip. We're having a good time.

Steve: You know, I'm really happy you're having a good time with the ice-skating and the furry hats and all that, but the last time we saw anna, she was completely unhinged.

Roman: That's a little strong, don't you think?

Kayla: She shot steve... with--with a gun.

Roman: Nobody's perfect.

Brady: It's club soda.

Victor: I didn't say a word.

Brady: You didn't have to. To answer your question, eve is still in our lives, but I'm making progress.

Victor: How much progress?

Brady: Well, since you and i staged that little fight, I have her pretty much convinced that I'm in her corner.

Victor: And what makes you think that you can neutralize her?

Brady: Ah. Let's just say... I've wormed my way into her cold heart.

Victor: You seduced her?

Brady: It was--it was so easy. Wasn't difficult. She's so needy and desperate for attention right now.

Victor: I take it this is all business on your part.

Brady: I've got the whole situation under control.

Victor: [Chuckles] I'm sure you think so. But you don't have very many things under control these days.

Brady: Is this about the drinking again, really?

Victor: Brady, sleeping with the enemy is rarely a one-way street. You're playing a dangerous game. Sometimes even the most confident players get played.

Brady: [Scoffs]

Chloe: Do you have an agenda when it comes to brady?

Eve: My only agenda is preserving the company left to me by my dear late husband.

Chloe: You mean the company that deimos stole?

Eve: Look, I know you hated deimos, but he could actually be quite sweet and very generous.


Chloe: So, what, you were truly, madly, deeply in love?

Eve: No matter how you feel about deimos, you got to admit that victor's worse.

Chloe: Well, yeah, no doubt. Victor's evil.

Eve: Yeah, and you know what he's doing now? He's targeting his brother's grieving widow. And I'm not gonna let him get away with it, because I'm gonna fight back. Come on! You have to support that.

Chloe: Not if you're using brady to do it.

Eve: [Scoffs]

Hope: It's never easy when an officer has to the pull the trigger. And I understand all that guilt that comes with it. If you need more time off for counseling, then I think that you should--

Jj: Oh, I'm already working with eric.

Hope: That's good. He's good.

Jj: But I'm not working with him to come back to the job. That part of my life is over. I don't want to be a cop anymore. I want to find something else in my life.

Eli: Christmas eve was a mistake.

Lani: It was my fault. I'm the one who saw jj and gabi and just assumed they had sex.

Eli: Listen, I can't blame you for that.

Lani: No, I could've talked to jj. Instead I ran off and I ran--

Eli: You ran into me. Yes, I know, but--

Lani: Yeah, but it never should have happened. We never should have ended up in bed together.

Eli: I know. Lani, we've already established that. But we also know that we were both very upset. And we'd been drinking.

Lani: Like that's an excuse.

Eli: It's just part of the reason.

Lani: Yeah, well, there were a lot of parts of the reason, weren't there?

Eli: Like--like what? What are--what are you talking about?

Lani: Like you telling me that you had fallen for me once.

Eli: Why are you bringing that up?

Lani: Because it was just a strange thing for you to say.

Eli: Strange how? It was the truth.

Lani: It's like you were coming on to me.

Eli: Are you trying to say that by me telling you that that that's the reason that you slept with me?

Lani: I don't know. I... I just--I think it was a part of the reason.

Eli: So you're saying this is my fault.

Lani: I'm just trying to remember what led up to it, to us ending up in bed together.

Eli: Why? Why are you trying to remember? My god! Lani, what is the point of analyzing it all over again, who said what to whom and what were we thinking? Why does any of that even matter? It was a mistake! It's over!

[Dramatic music]

Lani, I'm sorry. I'm being hard on you, and you don't deserve it. I just wish that we didn't have to look at what happened so negatively, like it-- like it was some miserable, traumatic experience that's gonna scar us forever. I mean, yes, if we had the chance to do it over again, we'd show more restraint, but... I just feel like we need to stop beating ourselves up over this. Lani, I know you feel guilty. I feel guilty too. But we thought at the time that gabi and jj were cheating on us. I think it'll just be better if we just move on and stay friends.

Lani: [Scoffs] Friends. Right.

Eli: Why not? Lani, we slept together once. And we both agree that it will never happen again. It doesn't have to change anything, does it? Hey. Does it?

Lani: It already has.

Brady: Getting close to eve is just a means to an end, that's all. She's not gonna play me. Once she fully trusts me, then I'll move forward with my plan.

Victor: And just what is this plan?

Brady: I'm gonna do to her what she did to deimos. I'm gonna make her fall in love with me. Then I'm gonna marry her. Then I'm gonna take everything she has.

Victor: You're deluding yourself, brady. Unlike some of your other low-rent sluts, eve is no dummy. She's gonna make you sign a prenup. You're not gonna get anywhere near deimos' assets.

Brady: By the time she is completely invested in me, she'll sign anything I want her to.

Victor: You sound awfully confident.

Brady: She's needy right now. She's so desperate for any kind of attention, for anyone to care about her. She's gonna cling on to me like a--like a lifeline. And once she falls hopelessly in love with me, I'm gonna move in for the kill.

Victor: Well, if she doesn't succumb to your charms, you may have to do just that.

Brady: What? Kill her?

Victor: I didn't say that. You did.

Eve: You know, I'm curious. What is it you think I'm doing to hurt brady?

Chloe: I don't know. I just know that brady's really vulnerable right now. He's been going through a lot, you know, fighting his addiction and being in a string of horrible relationships. The last thing he needs right now is to have his heart broken again.

Eve: Sound a little bit protective of him.

Chloe: Well, brady and i are friends. We have history.

Eve: Mm. Seems to me a little bit more than history. You jealous?

Steve: Just out of curiosity, have you checked anna's purse?

Kayla: Steve.

Steve: What? Don't you want to know if she's packing?

Roman: Be nice. We're having fun.

Steve: She opened fire in a cafe.

Roman: She was having a bad day.

Steve: So was I, when she shot me.

Roman: It was an accident.

Kayla: And she makes you happy?

Roman: I told you, we're having a good time.

Kayla: And she seems stable?

Roman: She is stable.

Anna: Roman, we're going to need one more chair.

Kayla: Somebody joining us?

Anna: Well, I thought tony would like to be a part of this lunch as well. But I guess he'll be fine on the table. There you go, sweetheart. Much better, hmm?

[Quirky music]

Real cheese people know

good things come in threes.

Roman: Anna, um... I thought we talked about the urn.

Anna: Yes, we did.

Roman: Uh, but I didn't know you were still lugging tony around still.

Anna: Well, not all the time. Only when it seems appropriate.

Kayla: Anna, I understand that you're still grieving over the loss of tony...

Anna: Yeah. He was my everything.

Kayla: And I feel for you. But do you think it's healthy to be carrying around his remains?

Anna: Well, look, some people have support dogs, emotional support dogs. And I have tony. I know it seems unconventional and you all think I'm crazy...

Roman: Well, look, nobody's really saying that.

Anna: But, you know, we all find ways to cope, right? It's not like I'm expecting him to answer me back. And I don't have to take him on walks.

Steve: No, you just bring him out for special occasions.

Anna: Tony is a reminder.

Kayla: Of what?

Anna: Of what stefano did to us.

Steve: Oh, here we go.

Anna: You know, that monster tore us apart. He's the reason I lost tony.

Kayla: You know, you really need to let that go. Remember what happened to you in europe?

Anna: I'm sorry. I just can'T. I... stefano never paid for what he did to me or to tony or to any of us at this table.

Steve: Can't argue with you on that one.

Anna: See? That's exactly why I want to hire you, steve.

Steve: Hire me?

Anna: Yes.

Steve: For what?

Anna: I want you to go after stefano and bring him to justice.

Steve: [Clears throat]

Chloe: Me, jealous of you and brady?


Eve: Yeah, mm-hmm, 'cause you're kind of acting like you're still his wife.

Chloe: That's crazy.

Eve: Oh, is it really? You breeze into his house whenever you want to. You're very, very territorial of him. And I don't know. It just seems like there might be--I don't know-- some feelings there.

Chloe: No, there are no feelings there. It's just that brady's my friend and I'm--I'm worried about him. And he's going through a tough time, and when he's in a bad place, he makes bad choices.

Eve: Oh, right. I'm a bad choice.

Chloe: No, I didn't mean that, not necessarily. It's just, you know, you just lost your dear, beloved husband, and with all the issues happening at titan, I'm not sure that your bed is the safest place for brady right now.

Eve: Hmm. Blunt much?

Chloe: I'm just being honest.

Eve: All right, well, in the, uh, spirit of honesty, who knows? Maybe brady is using me, right? What if, uh, say, victor has ordered brady to take me to bed?

Chloe: [Sighs] Well, if you were so worried about that, why would you sleep with him in the first place?

Eve: 'Cause I wanted to. 'Cause he's sexy and he's charming and... okay, you know, I was a little lonely. But I'm not stupid.

Chloe: Nobody said you are.

Eve: You know what? I like him. I like him a lot. But my main goal is to put basic black back on track. And if I find out that he's been double-crossing me, it is not gonna be pretty. I can tell you that much.

Chloe: Mm-hmm. Especially if you've developed real feelings for him?

Eve: I got to go.

Chloe: Okay.

Eve: All right? This drink was marvelous. Talk to you later.

Chloe: Bye.

[Dramatic music]

Eli: Why are you beating yourself up over this?

Lani: Because we can't just pretend like we didn't sleep together.

Eli: We made a bad choice, lani, but we are the only people in the world that know about this. We can put it behind us.

Lani: And what if we can't?

Eli: Gabi forgave me for accusing her of sleeping with jj. You can make things right with jj too.

Lani: I'm not sure about that.

Eli: Look, you know that I was one of jj's harshest critics. Hell, I still have a big problem with what he did. But theo is on the road to recovery and jj has been exonerated. There is no reason the two of you can't pick up where you left off.

Hope: Guess there's no talking you out of it.

Jj: I appreciate you trying. But I don't want to look back anymore. I'm moving ahead.

Hope: Any ideas what you're gonna do next?

Jj: I don't know. But one thing I do know is that after everything that went down with theo, I'm going to make every day count.

Hope: That's a good lesson.

Jj: I know that there's something meaningful for me out there. I'm going to find it.

Lani: Sometimes... life doesn't always go the way you think it will.

Eli: Lani, we made a mistake. But if we don't find a way to put this behind us, it's gonna drive us crazy.

Lani: That's gonna be really hard to do--let it go. For me, anyway. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be reminded of it on a daily basis.

Eli: Why do you have to be reminded of it every day? That sounds like you want to punish yourself.

Lani: Maybe I do.

Eli: Lani, look at me. Please. We got lucky. We dodged a bullet. No one knows what happened between us that night, and they never will. The sooner that we can forget what happened and move on, the easier it will be. You can go on and you can be happy with jj and then I can move on and be with gabi.

Lani: You act like there are no consequences to what we did.

Eli: Are there? What are the consequences?

Steve: So you want me to hunt stefano for you?

Anna: For all of us. I can't think of anyone more suited to the job.

Kayla: Are you sure you want to find him?

Roman: What makes you think he's still alive?

Steve: Yeah, you know, stefano was dying of about four different ailments when he set hope up for shooting him. He didn't have much time left.

Anna: You see this, you pig? It's all I have left of my tony.

Stefano: [Laughs]

Anna: He and I loved each other so much, and we should be having this happy, happy life together. But you came between us every chance that you got. You're the reason I'm alone. No, he's too mean to go like that. Besides, stefano didn't even look sick when i saw him in that jail cell.

Steve: You crafty son of a bitch.

So... our plan worked like a charm.

Shane: Just like you said it would.

Steve: No, stefano had the best doctors in the world. But that doesn't even matter. I mean, maybe he's alive, but he's probably dead. And besides, if stefano doesn't want to be found, it's almost impossible to find him.

Anna: This was taken a couple months ago in turkey. He looks pretty alive to me. How about you?

Steve: [Sighs]

Roman: Let me take a look. That's stefano, all right.

Kayla: Are you sure it's real?

Steve: Come on, dude. If this is your idea of a joke, it's not funny. That's you feeding the pigeons.

Shane: I'm telling you, steve, I never went to this park, and I sure as hell never fed any pigeonS.

Steve: Seriously?

Shane: This isn't me.

Steve: Okay, so the isa followed another guy, some random doppelganger. Shane, we both know where stefano is. We dropped the body in the grave ourselves. This guy just happens to look like him. Just a coincidence.

Shane: Yeah. And I believe that too.

Steve: I don't know if that picture's real or not. Maybe it doesn't matter.

Anna: Well, of course it matters.

Roman: Look, I want that son of a bitch punished, like everybody else, but are you sure you want to throw your whole life away on stefano dimera?

Brady: Nobody's getting killed, granddad. This is going to be a bloodless coup. I'll get rid of eve quietly and quickly.

Victor: No, brady, you're naive if you think that eve's gonna go quietly. Desperate women like eve keep battling until no one's left standing.

Brady: Yeah, we'll see about that.

Victor: Hmm, well, no matter what, you must concentrate on your endgame, not hers.

Brady: I always do.

Victor: Good. 'Cause if you handle this correctly and you get rid of eve, it could be very good for you.

Brady: Does this mean that you'll put me back in charge of titan?

Victor: I'll certainly consider it.

Eve: So why don't you use your business and professional expertise to help me turn basic black around?

Brady: [Sighs]

Eve: What's wrong? Hmm? Oh, you scared of a challenge? Oh, or maybe victor's right about you.

Brady: The hell he is.

Eve: Prove it.

Brady: Okay. I'm in.

[Cell phone beeps] Henderson tells me that eve just pulled up in the driveway. Are you up for some more theatrics?

Victor: If it means getting that harpy out of our lives, for good, count me in.

7 days ago, karen wasn't

thinking about

Lani: I love jj. But I don't know if I can be with him and not think about what we did.

Eli: Well, you're gonna have to try. Because I know gabi, and if she finds out what happened between us, that's gonna be the end of our relationship.

[Cell phone beeps] That's gabi now. She's excited about her new deal with dimera.

Lani: Good for her.

Eli: Look, I'm gonna go get some flowers and go see her.

Lani: That's nice of you.

Eli: Are we cool? Lani, I know this is gonna be hard. And if you need to talk again, I am always available. But we need to get past this. You deserve to be happy.

[Soft dramatic music]

Hope: You sound hopeful.

Jj: Mm-hmm.

Hope: I'm so sorry to see you go but excited to see what you do next.

Jj: Yeah, me too.

Hope: Thank you for everything, jj.

Jj: Hope, thank you for the opportunity to be a cop and for standing up for me after the shooting... even when it almost cost you your job.

Hope: Come here. You take care of yourself, detective, understand?

Jj: You too, commish.

Hope: [Chuckles]

Jj: I'll let you get back to work.

Hope: Okay. Hey. I'm really proud of you.

[Tender music]

Anna: Of course I don't want to go to prison for stefano. But I will get justice for tony, with or without your help.

Roman: Look, we just want you to be careful.

[Cell phone ringing]

Steve: I'm sorry. Hello?

Hope: Hey, steve, it's hope.

Steve: Oh, hi, hope.

Hope: Are you busy? What are you doing right now?

Steve: Uh, no, just having lunch at the pub. What's up?

Hope: I was hoping you could come down to the station, take a look at a case for me.

Steve: Um... yeah, okay. I'll be down as soon as I can. Yeah. I'm sorry. I've got to cut this lunch short. Hope needs me down at the station. Baby, don't you need to get back to the hospital? Maybe you can give me a ride on the way.

Kayla: Sure. Sure, I can do that.

Steve: Okay. Sorry.

Anna: Steve, wait. I hope you'll change your mind about going after stefano. You know the world will be a better place once that man is wiped off the face of it.

Steve: Yeah. Yeah. Okay.

Kayla: Uh, let's do this again sometime. Anna.

[Dramatic music]

Roman: [Clears throat]

Anna: Look, I'm-- I'm sorry that I took that conversation in a dark direction.

Roman: Listen, anna, I know you want vengeance for what stefano's done. I mean, I get that. Me too. We all do. But that is not something I really want to deal with in my life right now.

Brady: You know what, old man?

[Stammering] I don't care if you hate the fact that eve and i are working together at basic black, because I happen to like it there.

Victor: Why would you want to go anywhere near that train wreck of a woman?

Brady: Train wre-- she's a--she's a savvy and smart businesswoman, I'll let you know, and--and I like being around her.

Victor: The woman is a lying whore.

Brady: Don't talk about her that way.

Victor: I can't believe that you're defending her.

Brady: You're angry because she made me realize that you're the one holding me back at titan.

Victor: Oh, that's ridiculous.

Brady: You know what ridiculous is? The fact that you think you're gonna win this, granddad, 'cause you're not. Hold on to that company as much as you want, but you better give sonny notice. 'Cause she and I are coming after you.

Victor: Brady!

[Tense music]

(Vo) more "doing chores for mom"

Hope: Come on in. Thank you so much for coming down so quickly.

Steve: Sure.

Hope: I-I wasn't interrupting anything, was I?

Steve: No, no, not really. So what's this case you got going?

Hope: Well, I don't want to spoil it. Take a look at it and let me know what you think, okay?

Steve: [Clears throat]

[Dramatic music]

Hope, uh, I'm not sure--

Hope: Don't say a word until you've read the whole thing. I need to run over to the da's office. Give it a once-over, leave it on my desk, and I'll call you later for your thoughts.

Steve: Okay, I'll do that.

Hope: Thank you. Thanks.

Steve: See you later.

Hope: Appreciate it. Mm. So good to see you. It's been too long. All right.

Steve: Yeah.

Hope: Thanks again.

Steve: [Sighs]

Anna: I've spent so many years dreaming about making stefano pay for what he did to us.

Roman: Well, you know, as someone who battled that maniac for 35 years, I know how that obsession can take over your life.

Anna: He took everything from me.

Roman: Oh, come on. Anna, everything? You've still got a lot to live for: Carrie, noah.

Anna: And you?

Roman: Yes, that can happen, but you need to listen to me, okay?

Anna: Mm.

Roman: I know tony will always be a part of your life, and he should be. But I also know tony would want you to move on. And, anna, you need to do that.

[Bell dings] Uh, okay, food's ready. I'll be right back.

Anna: Don't worry, tony. I'll never let this go. Not until you've been avenged.

[Suspenseful music]

Brady: Sorry. I'm s-- I did not know that you were out here.

Eve: I just--I just got here.

Brady: How much of that did you hear?

Eve: All of it.

Brady: I'm sorry. Just, my granddad, he's so--

Eve: I know what your granddad is.

Brady: [Sighs] I want him to understand that... you and I are business partners now and he's not gonna roll over us, and I don't want--

[Dramatic music]

[Line rings]

[Phone ringing]

Kayla: Dr. Johnson.

Lani: Hi, kayla, it's lani.

Kayla: Is everything all right?

Lani: Yeah, I've been doing some thinking. I made a decision about my pregnancy.
