Eric: Dad, I just did that.

Roman: Oh. Uh, right. Sorry.

Eric: Oh, hey, don't you need to get going?

Roman: Actually, anna's gonna meet me here, and listen, don't worry about calling me if there's problems.

Eric: I'm gonna be fine.

Roman: All right.

Eric: [Sighs] So are things getting serious between you and anna?

Roman: Right now we are just having a good time.

Anna:Ey, there, handsome.

Roman: Ah [Chuckles] Hi.

Anna: Hi, eric.

Eric: Anna.

Anna: You ready?

Roman: Actually, you're a little bit early. I wanted to have a talk with eric.

Eric: Dad, you can go. I don't think we have to have another conversation about my pathetic love life.

Anna: Oh. It's her again, isn't it?

Eric: Yeah, I'm afraid so.

Anna: Well then, talk to your dad. And I will just go over and put our name in.

Roman: All right. Cool.

Eric: Doesn't anna look great?

Roman: Oh, yes, absolutely. You do. You look, I mean, you look great tonight.

Anna: Well that's just what I needed to hear.

[Both chuckle]

Kate: Wow. People are blogging like crazy about gabi chic and the upcoming ipo launch.

Andre: I predict that this is going to perform way beyond expectation.

Kate: [Chuckles] No doubt.

Andre: I think we go out and celebrate in advance. Are you free for dinner, mrs. Dimera?

Kate: Um... I am free for dinner, mr. Dimera. It's a great idea.

Andre: Yeah.

Kate: I'll go get my coat. You know, as happy as I am, you know what really galls me?

Andre: What? How good all this is going to make stefan look?

Kate: We did all the work. He's going to get all the credit. You know, I can see that headline right now. "New dimera ceo opens strong."


Andre: Hm. Stefan may have the title. But he hasn't a clue that it's his mother and i who have all the power.

[Door closes]

Vivian: Well. You look pleased with yourself.

Stefan: [Sighs] I am really enjoying this family life.

Vivian: Uh-huh. Well, don't get too complacent because chad has hired a pi to investigate the hacking and the sabotage. And andre's afraid that chad will find out that he and I are playing you.

Stefan: Is he now?

Vivian: Little does he know that he's the one being played.

Stefan: You don't think he suspects anything?

Vivian: [Chuckles] Andre thinks that we are pulling the strings and you are just a clueless puppet.

Stefan: What an arrogant little weasel he is. It's only day two and I'm already tired of his little-- his little smirks, you know?

Vivian: Oh, just let it go. We have to make him think he's in the driver's seat. His day will come.

Stefan: What a vicious mommy I have.

Vivian: Well, I have to be vicious to deal with this crowd. The dimeras were brought up to eat their own. I'm just playing the game.

[Both chuckle]

Stefan: Well, your game plan seems to be working like a charm.

Vivian: And this is only the beginning.

Gabi: Thank you. Thank you so much. That'S... that's very exciting to hear. Okay. Yeah. Sounds good, thank you. Well, kate says there's a lot of buzz about the launch of gabi chic.

Eli: I'm sure it's going to do great.

Gabi: Eli, thank you for always believing in me.

Eli: [Scoffs] I wish that were true.

Gabi: Are you thinking about when you thought I had slept with jj?

Eli: You have no idea how much I regret that.

Jj: Lani. I just told you that I love you. And you told me that you love me, too. Maybe the timing isn't perfect, but I promise I will be a great dad to our baby.

[Soft guitar music]

Lani: This is a lot more complicated than you're making it out to be.

Jj: Look. I know that this isn't easy, and it's a huge responsibility. And it's your body. And your decision. But I would love to raise our baby together. What do you say?

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

[Soft orchestration]

Gabi: Eli, come on, please. Don'T...don't give that a second thought, okay? We've put all that behind us.

Eli: You're right. Tonight we should be celebrating the launch of gabi chic. Let me take you out to dinner.

Gabi: Well, maybe I should take you out, considering I'm likely to make major bank.

Eli: Okay.

[Both laugh] Well, let me let you know that I have no problem being a kept man.

Gabi: Oh, well so you know, you have to earn that.

Eli: Well, I have no problem with that either.

Lani: There's something you should know.

[Knocking on door]

Jennifer: Oh, I'm so sorry. Am I interrupting?

Lani: No, not at all.

Jennifer: Oh, I just... I came to follow up a story and the desk sergeant told me that you were here. I thought you weren't coming back till tomorrow.

Jj: Well, actually, the truth is... I ended up quitting.

Jennifer: What? Why?

Jj: I told hope. After everything that happened with theo that I never want to be put in that position again.

Jennifer: Hey, um, are you sure about this?

Jj: I'm very sure. I'm ready to move on. Focus on something new.

Jennifer: Well, I just--i want you to be happy, jj. That'S...that's what matters to me. And maybe we can talk about it later a little bit more. I just--I love you so much.

Jj: I love you, too.

Jennifer: Okay, anyway, I'm sorry. I need to go. I have A... I have a dinner date.

Jj: Well, tell eric I say hi.

Jennifer: Oh, it'S... it's not with eric. Anyway, I'll see you later. Oh, lani. I am so glad that you and jj worked things out. Bye, sweetie.

Lani: Bye. Listen, jj.

Jj: Before you say anything, I want you to come some place with me.

Lani: Where?

Jj: You will see. Remember our special night?

Roman: Okay, uh... last I heard nicole was history and you were ready to go after jennifer.

Eric: "Go after" jennifer. And what? You want me to hit her over the head with a club? Drag her back to my cave?

Roman: Just answer the question. What changed?

Eric: Jennifer. She showed up in my office and gave me the cold shoulder. She was all business, and she acted like she couldn't wait to get out of there.

Roman: Did you do something to make her mad?

Eric: Not that I know of. On new year's eve everything seemed okay. It was more than okay.

Roman: Huh. Maybe she's just not ready to date again.

Eric: [Chuckles] I think she's more than ready to start dating, just not me. Listen, I heard that she was going out with some doctor tonight which is weird because I asked her to go out first. She said she already had plans.

Roman: Huh. Yeah, you're right. That is... that is weird.

Eric: Yeah, you know, after new year's eve, I thought we both agreed to kind of, you know, make things work again.

Roman: That doesn't sound like jennifer to play games.

Eric: No, this is not games. She totally backed off and i don't know why. What made her do a complete 180?

Anna: Jennifer. Hi.

Jennifer: Hey. Hi. So good to see you again.

Anna: I hope you're feeling better. You ran out of there so suddenly the other night.

Jennifer: Yeah, yeah. I am sorry. I am feeling so much better. Yes. You look beautiful. Big plans?

Anna: Roman is taking me over to doug's place. But he had to wait and talk to eric. Again.

Jennifer: Oh, right. 'Cause the last time they talked they were talking about eric and how he couldn't get over nicole.

Anna: Yes. Apparently she is still the topic of conversation. It's like, get over it, you know?

Jennifer: Yeah, I know.

Anna: And what are you doing out here all alone?

Jennifer: Oh, um. Well, actually...

Shah: Jennifer, hi. We still good for tonight?

Jennifer: Hi, dr. Shah. Yes. Definitely. Oh, sorry. Anna, this is dr. Shah. He's going to be working with us at the center, and dr. Shah, this is anna dimera. We've known each other for years. We go way back.

Shah: Nice to meet you.

Anna: Yeah, same here.


[Clears throat] Well, I better get going. You two have fun tonight.

Jennifer: Okay, you too.

Shah: [Chuckles] You look... you look lovely this evening.

Jennifer: Thank you, dr. Shah.

Shah: Please, call me henry.

Jennifer: Okay, henry. Well, where are we going?

Shah: Well, I heard good things about this family owned place, it's supposed to have the best clam chowder in the midwest.

Jennifer: Oh. Brady pub?

Shah: Oh, you've been there?

Jennifer: Once or twice.

Shah: Is that all right with you? We could go to doug's place if you'd rather.

Jennifer: No. You know what, brady pub. It's good. Sounds great.

Stefan: I can't help but wonder if involving andre was the right move.

Vivian: Oh, now, don't second guess mommy. Remember, she's vicious.

Stefan: It's just from everything that I've read, he's a bit of a loose cannon.

Vivian: Yes, but you see, I knew that andre's vaulting ambition was his achilles' heel. So I just showed him something shiny, put a carrot on a stick, and he was eating out of the palm of my hand. And I think I've just mixed my metaphors.

Stefan: You know, it frightens me that I'm actually beginning to be able to follow what it is that you're trying to say.

Vivian: [Chuckles] No. I made the exact right move. It was andre's idea to set up that office space to make it look like it was an outside hacker and then to throw everyone off the scent so they wouldn't know what we're really doing.

Stefan: But you do know, don't you? In time, andre will realize that he's been duped.

Vivian: Well, yes, but it'll be too late by then. We just have to play the charade for a little while.

[Knocking, door opens]

Stefan: Come in...

Kate: Have you been online? Have you seen the fabulous buzz about gabi chic?

Vivian: I'll alert the board about our news.

Kate: Even though you had nothing to do with it.

Stefan: Kate, we're all family here. We're all on the same team.

Kate: Not her. You have to be human to be part of a family, part of a team.

Vivian: Kate. Those shoes. Bunions?

Kate: [Laughs] You know you haven't known her very long. It's only a matter of time before you'll discover who she really is. She's an evil, selfish woman who is incapable of loving anyone other than herself. You see, once he discovers that, you will be alone. Once again. It's nice to have something to look forward to, isn't it?

Stefan: [Clears throat]

Stefan: She really gets under your skin, doesn't she?

Vivian: I don't know what you're talking about.

Stefan: Kate, she's an expert at pushing your buttons.

Vivian: She does not push my buttons. I push her buttons. I am the only one who knows that her husband is making a fool of her. And when she finds that out, there will be no smirk on her face.

Stefan: You know you can't do that, right? Because the sting only works if they never figure out that they're being stung. As much as you want to, mother, you can't rub kate's nose in it. Okay? You'll have your five minutes of fun, and then she'll go tell the board. And just like that we're done.

Vivian: Yes, I know that we sabotaged the company so you could take over. I know, I know, I know.

Stefan: This has to stay between us. You understand that, right?

Vivian: Of course I do. It's just that woman needs to be taken down a peg.

Kate: That woman. She drives me crazy. These shoes are fabulous.

Andre: How about some salmon?

Kate: No. Oh, no. I lost my taste for fish years ago. Because vivian sabotaged a plane that I was on. We had to make a water landing, and I was rescued by a fishing boat.

Andre: Just like jason bourne.

Kate: You know, for nine months, I was forced to chop fish, night and day. And you know how I survived? I took a cleaver and every time I saw a fish, I saw her face, her pinched ugly face and I chopped it.

Andre: You two don't like each other, do you?

Kate: Oh, my god, it'S... it's not funny. I hate her with every fiber of my being.

Andre: I didn't realize that.

Kate: You have no idea the things she did to me. She stole my son, andre. I have no idea why. Why I deserve to have her in my life again.

Andre: I propose a change of subject. A toast. To our marriage now that's it's no longer a marriage of convenience, and to years, I hope, of... of happiness and love.

Anna: Happiness and love? Those are things you don't deserve.

Andre: [Sighs]

Roman: All right, look. There's only one way to find out why jennifer changed her mind. Ask her.

Eric: Dad, I'm not sure i want to make a big deal out of it. All right? You know what? I don't feel like I should put her on the spot if she's not feeling the same way I do. I'm just gonna have to just not make things awkward, you know?

Roman: Cluck, cluck, cluck.

Eric: Dad, I'm not chicken. I'm just trying to respect jennifer's feelings.

Roman: And not get shot down.

Eric: I've already been shot down. She's going out with a doctor.

Roman: It's one date. Come on. It's not like she's engaged to the guy. Don't throw in the towel. Faint heart never won fair maid. You know that.

Eric: I hate it when you get poetic.

Roman: Well, you just hate it when I'm right, which is most of the time. Okay, maybe you just need to up your game with jennifer. Turn on the charm.

Eric: [Chuckles] Kind of like you do with anna?

Roman: Nobody likes a wise ass.

Eric: Hm.

Roman: Actually, I am trying to give you some solid advice here, all right? There's not a day goes by that I don't regret fighting for your mom a lot harder. Okay? I don't want you to make the same mistake.

Eric: I know, dad.

Roman: Okay, and one more thing. Just like your mom, jennifer is worth fighting for.

Eric: I'll think it over.

Roman: Well, don't take too long. Round one just started.

Lani: I don't know why you wanted me to see this. I pass by it almost every day.

Jj: And I do, too. And I'm glad. Because that means I get reminded of their legacy every day. Which is family. And love. Horton kids get so much love. They grow up wanting their own kids to love. And because I'm a horton, maybe not the best horton, but I am one of them, I have a lot to give this baby.

Lani: You don't understand.

Jj: Oh, I think I do. I understand that I really, really hurt you. But I will never push you away again. Lani, please. Just give me this chance.

Lani: Oh, god.

Jj: What?

[Both laughing]

Tech: At safelite autoglass

Gabi: Hey, guys, what's up?

Lani: Hey.

Jj: We were just going for a walk.

Eli: Yeah, we're actually on our way to dinner. Pre-celebration for the upcoming launch of gabi chic.

Gabi: Come have a drink with us.

Lani: I can'T. I mean... we can't intrude. You guys go and have a great time.

Eli: I think we will.

Jj: We should get going.

Eli: Hey, lanI? It's really nice to see you two together again.

Kate: Anna. I had no idea that you were back in salem.

Anna: Oh, I got in on new year's eve.

Kate: Oh.

Anna: And I was hoping to avoid running into you, but i guess my luck ran out.

Andre: As did mine.

Anna: [Chuckles] You know, when austin told me you married this monster, I couldn't believe it. I thought you were smarter than that.

Kate: Anna, look, I know that the two of you have issues, but--

Anna: Issues? Do I really have to remind you of all the horrible things that this man did to tony and me?

Andre: I'm not the same person.

Anna: Oh, like hell you're not. You always have been, you always will be the same despicable, sick bastard that stole tony's life. Because of you and your father, tony and I lost years we could have been together.

Andre: I'm sorry about that. I am.

Kate: He's telling the truth. It's true. He's changed. Sometimes he even reminds me a little bit of tony.

Anna: No. No. He could never be half the man tony was.

Kate: Anna. Tony is dead. You need to let it go.

Anna: How can I? When tony has never... he's never received the justice he deserved, and meanwhile you just run around scot-free after everything you've done. I can only hope that some day you get exactly what's coming to you.

Jennifer: Thank you.

Shah: Mm-hmm.

Roman: Damn. You didn't tell me how good looking that guy was. Is he a model or something?

Eric: I told you he was a doctor.

Roman: Well, he could sure play one on tv. You're right. You got no chance, man. Throw in the towel. That guy totally outclasses you.

Eric: Dad, you need to go. You're being a terrible dad, and you're not funny.

Roman: Good luck, man. Hey, jen, you look good tonight.

Jennifer: Hey, hi.

Eric: Hi. Can I get you something to drink?

Jennifer: You're working tonight?

Eric: Yeah, you know, just covering for my dad.

Jennifer: Yeah, right.

Shah: What do you like?

Jennifer: Oh, um. I'll have a white wine, please.

Shah: Two white wines, please. You two know each other.

Jennifer: Yeah. Yeah, we work together. Dr. Sha--henry, sorry. This is eric brady, he runs the horton center. Eric, this is dr. Shah, he's going to be volunteering his services.

Eric: Oh, that's great. Thank you.

Shah: So, eric brady. This your place.

Eric: Yeah, it's my dad'S. My grandparents before that. So, you're going to be working at the center.

Shah: You do really good work there, I'd like to help.

Eric: Well, you know, i really appreciate you wanting to put in all those extra hours at the center after working your regular shift at the hospital. Your wife must be very understanding.

Shah: I'm not married.

Eric: Then your girlfriend, then.

Shah: No, don't have one. But I'm hoping that'll change.

Eric: Well, while I get your drinks, you two look over the menu. The special is meatloaf tonight.

Shah: Good thing he has a job at the center. I don't think he's cut out for hospitality.

Jennifer: I think that I will have the cod.

Eric: We have meatloaf tonight.

Jennifer: I know.

Eric: But you love meatloaf.

Jennifer: I thought I'd try something new.

Eric: Customer's always right.

Shah: Seems a little tense. Don't you two get along?

Jennifer: Yeah. Yeah, we get along. We're good friends.

Shah: Just friends? I only ask because there seemed to be something going on there just now.

Jennifer: No. There isn'T. We are... we are just friends.

Shah: Good. I'm glad.

[Both laugh] In case you haven't noticed, my interest in you isn't entirely professional. I'd like to get to know you more personally. If you're open to that.

Jennifer: Uh... you know what, I am very open to that.

Kate: Anna. The one that you should be angry at, if you really think about it, is stefano, not andre.

Anna: Oh, I have enough hate for both of them. I only wish I'd been able to kill stefano in prague when I had the chance.

Andre: This pairs nicely with spleen.

Kate: You know, austin told me all about his pistol packing mother-in-law. So, annie oakley, I would like to enjoy dinner with my husband. Why don't you amble over back to your table and order up some grub.

Anna: Very funny.

[Chuckles sarcastically] Okay, look. Austin and carrie are married. So that makes us family. And I feel it is my duty to warn you to be careful. I mean, you say he's on his best behavior, that he reminds you of tony, but that's when you really have to be careful. That means he's up to something.

Andre: Anna, don't you have something else to do.

Anna: As a matter of fact, I do.

Roman: [Sighs] Looks like a party. I hope I didn't miss all the fun.

Vivian: Oh, I almost forgot. I got you something for your first day as a ceo.

Stefan: Okay. Thank you.

Vivian: It belonged to my nephew lawrence.

Stefan: My cousin, right?

Vivian: Mm-hmm, until his untimely death, he was a brilliant businessman. You know... you remind me of him.

Stefan: Thank you for this. It's very handsome.

Vivian: Oh, no, no, no. I should thank you. You know... my life was so empty until you tracked me down. Even with ivan's adoration, I was just... lonely.

Stefan: Yeah. I mean, I know how your other relatives tended to keep their distance from you.

Vivian: Well, they tracked me down on occasion. But I guess through the years I really alienated them, and it just seems to be the story of my life. People I really love I fight for.

Stefan: Yeah.

Vivian: It just always backfires.

Stefan: Really?

Vivian: But you, my son...

[Sighs] You understand me, and you accept me. And having you in my life, I'm so grateful.

Gabi: It finally feels like I'm gonna be able to take control of my life and my future. I know how I want to expand the business and find new markets. Why are you smiling at me like that?

[Both laugh]

Eli: I love your enthusiasm. I think it's sexy.

Gabi: Oh, well, I can... I can go on like that for hours.

Eli: I don'T... I don't think I'm ready for all that. I have an idea. Why don't you spend the night at my place.

Gabi: Like, um... like "spend the night" spend the night?

Eli: Yeah. Look, I know that we've been taking things slow since we started seeing each other, and I'm cool with that. But I also would love nothing more than to show you how much I care about you.

Gabi: That's a big step.

Eli: No pressure.

Gabi: Well, john and marlena have ari for the night.

Eli: Really?

Gabi: And more importantly, I want to show you how much I care about you, too.

[Soft guitar music]

It seems you're

dreamed enough

all the stories have been

put to bed

Eli: You're sure?

Gabi: Absolutely.

You're real and not

just in my head

it's true

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

Eli: I can't blame you for that.

Lani: No. I could have talked to jj. Instead I ran off and I ran--

Eli: And you ran into me. Yes, I know--

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

Jj: Oh. Sorry, I didn't mean to startle you.

Lani: It's okay. Yeah. I just have a lot to think about.

Jj: I'm sorry if I put pressure on you. I just want you to know that you are not alone in this. Whatever you decide to do, I'll be there for you. I may not be on the force anymore, but we're still partners. Right?

Lani: Right.

Andre: No, it hasn't been fun at all. As a matter of fact, we're feeling rather harassed. Maybe you can do us a favor and convince your ex-wife to leave us alone.

Anna: I was not harassing you.

Roman: You know what? You know what? I am starving. Let's grab a table.

Kate: Are you two together again?

Roman: Well, I think that falls under the category of none of your business.

Andre: Odd. It wasn't that long ago that I found you shoving your tongue down my wife's throat. I'm so glad to see a sign that you've possibly finally moved on.

Roman: Well, kate made it very clear that she had other... obligationS.

Kate: My marriage is not an obligation. Especially since andre and i realized how much we mean to each other.

Roman: Oh, my god. That makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. Let's leave these two newlyweds alone, okay?

Anna: Don't be fooled, kate. He's still the same old snake he always was. And he will hurt you.

Shah: You have a really beautiful smile.

Jennifer: Oh, that was--oh.

Shah: I'm sorry. You get that all the time.

Jennifer: No, that's fine. Thank you. No, I don'T. Thank you.

Eric: There you go. Thanks for coming in. I hope you two had a good night.

Shah: Look forward to seeing you at the center. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy working there.

Eric: Right.

Jennifer: [Laughs] No. That is hilarious. Okay, that's enough.

[Soft guitar music]

Every breath I take

is yours

when I'm lost you are

the door

for me

Jj: I better get you home. I promise I'll give you some time alone. Some time to think things over.

Lani: Actually, I... I don't need any more time.

Jj: You've decided?

Lani: Yeah. Get ready for some sleepless nights. You and I are gonna have a baby.

Andre: She's still staring daggers at me.

Kate: Ignore her. Clearly she has not gotten over tony's death, and she's taking it out on you.

Anre: Thank you so much for standing up for me just now.

Kate: You're my husband.

Andre: Can't tell you how happy I am to hear that.

Kate: I'm happy, too. And contrary to what anna says, I think we have a real shot at happiness.

Vivian: Wow. You had a spectacular first day.

Stefan: Don't you mean you and andre?

Vivian: Oh, now come on. Things will change. We need andre to oversee countess wilhelmina and we need the cash from gabi chic ipo. But once andre's usefulness has outlived itself, we'll just kick him to the curb.

&Stefan: He'll be livid. What's to stop him from singing like a canary to the board?

Vivian: Oh, come on. You leave andre to me. When it comes to those sort of things, I'm very good at keeping secrets good and... buried.
