Provided By Suzanne

Kate: Well, this has been a really, really great visit. You show up unannounced, you... I bump into you in the mausoleum. You tell me that you were there to comfort me for losing andre. Lie. You tell me that the bullet casings I found are ancient history. Lie. You tell me that the mausoleum is too cold. Lie. Of course, that last lie was just to bundle me out so you could play secret agent and get yourself shot and end up in this hospital bed.

[Sighs] And then tell me that you're going home tomorrow, so it was--it was really great. It really was. That was really comforting. I feel so much better now, billie. And you're playing games. I'm worried about you getting shot, and you're playing games. Billie.

Billie: Mom, I was trying to help john save steve's life.

Kate: You know something? If that's true, you could have told me. You could have trusted me.

[Door opens]

Lucas: Hey, billie, long time, no see. Sorry you got shot and all. What the hell have you done to my son?

[Dramatic music]

What are you doing?

[Footsteps approaching]

John: Hey, kid. Thanks for making time to see me.

Paul: Yeah, hey. Uh, how's steve?

John: Kayla said that he's doing better. It seems like the antidote is working.

Paul: That's good. That is great to hear.

John: Yeah, it is. Look, son, um... I'm sorry for everything I put you through. For what it's worth, I hated lying to you. Lying to family is... hell, it's worse than torture.

Victor: So if I don't do what you want, what then? Are you going to tell eve yourself?

Brady: Are we coming in at a bad time? Sorry, did we interrupt something? An argument, perhaps?

Victor: Maggie and i don't argue. We have a blissful relationship.

Brady: Really? Well, when we walked in here, it didn't look like maggie was all that blissful.

Maggie: Well, your grandfather and i were having a difference of opinion. About you and eve.

Eve: Mm. Really?

Maggie: You want to tell them, victor, or should I?

Abigail: What is it?

Chad: Hey. No, no, no, go back to sleep.

Abigail: Oh, my god, it's 10:30.

Chad: No, no, no.

Abigail: I never sleep this late.

Chad: I know. It's okay. Don't worry.

Abigail: I got to feed thomas.

Chad: No, I took care of everything. Okay? You slept through your alarm this morning, so I figured you should probably sleep in a little bit. Did you have another nightmare?

Abigail: I don't think so.

Chad: Good. Well, hopefully that's a sign that things are going back to normal. Okay. I'm gonna go make some fresh coffee and orange juice and all that good stuff. I'll see you downstairs? Okay.

[Door closes]

Abigail: I don't think I had a nightmare...

[Tense music]

Stefan: It's part of the murder weapon. What are you doing with it?

Gabby: Oh, okay. Gonna go get all high and mighty on me now, huh?

Stefan: You killed him, didn't you? You killed andre. You tried to set me up by planting this lid.

Gabby: Hmm. Figured that out all on your own, did you, stef? See, I'm facing murder charges. So... somebody's gotta take the fall.

Stefan: Why me?

Gabby: Why not you? Nobody around here likes you anyway. In fact, if you got locked up, I bet they'd throw a party.

Stefan: Hey, as much as I hate to say this, I'm calling the police.

Gabby: Ah, waste of your time. See, my brother is a cop and so is my boyfriend, eli.

Stefan: Okay, stop. Stop. Why--why are you talking like this? Like--

Gabby: What, like I'm innocent? Because I am innocent. Go ahead, call the police. What are they gonna do? Are they gonna come after lying, conniving dimera or single mother gabby hernandez?

Stefan: Damn. You really think you're gabi, don't you?

Gabby: Estas como una cabra? I am. I'm gabby hernandez.

Stefan: Okay, all right. I know you have a hist-- I know abigail has a history of mental illness.

Gabby: What does that have to do with anything?

Stefan: Well, clearly you're sick again. I'm gonna go get chad.

Gabby: I wouldn't do that if I were you.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Victor: No, you go ahead, maggie, you... you tell them whatever you feel the need to say.

Maggie: We were talking about you two dating. Victor doesn't approve.

Brady: [Chuckles] Surprise, surprise.

Eve: But you said you had a difference of opinion. Maggie, does that mean you do approve? 'Cause I know I'm not your favorite person.

Maggie: Everyone deserves a chance to be happy.

Brady: Well, I am glad you feel that way, because eve and I are happy. As a matter of fact, I think she's one of the best things that's happened to me in a long, long time. Granddad, before you make one of your classic abusive comments, I want you to know that I find her funny. I find her smart. I find her savvy. She's a great businesswoman, she's great-looking, and she is great with my son.

Eve: Thank you.

Maggie: Eve? Would you mind giving me a moment alone with victor and brady?

Eve: Oh, sure. Sure, sure. I'll, um-- I'll go check on tate.

Brady: No. No, no, no, no. Stay. Anything you want to say to me you can say in front of eve.

Stefan: Good morning.

Chad: Is it?

Stefan: I was wondering where abigail was.

Chad: She slept in.

Stefan: Is she feeling all right?

Chad: She's fine, not that it's any of your business.

Stefan: Actually, it is my business... after what happened last night.

Chad: What happened last night?

Kate: Lucas, please don't yell at your sister. She's in a hospital bed.

Billie: Yeah, that's your job.

Kate: [Sighs] I--look. What are you talking about? What about will? You--you haven't had a drink, have you?

Lucas: I--you know I am stone-cold sober. I haven't had a drink, although I thought about having a drink when I found out that my very own sister aided and abetted john black.

Kate: What?

Lucas: Held my son prisoner at the dimera crypt.

Kate: What?

Billie: Lucas, I'm sorry.

Lucas: You're not sorry, and you didn't have to do that. What's the matter with you?

Billie: Will and paul knew what john was doing, or at least they thought they knew what john was doing, so he had to neutralize them.

Kate: Oh...

Lucas: Don't you do that. Don't give me that isa crap jargon. He didn't "neutralize" him. He knocked him out and held him prisoner. That's not "neutralizing," that's a federal offense!

Billie: Lucas, I'm sorry.

Lucas: My son could have been killed. What's the matter with you?

Will: Ah, but I wasn't, fortunately. So, um... why don't we all just chill out and enjoy being a family?

Paul: Even when I was wondering what is going on between you and steve, I could tell that you were in real pain. And I knew that there had to be a reason that you were doing all this. I knew something was really wrong, but I know who you are, and... I never doubted that you, uh... okay, honestly, when I-- when I heard the gunshot and I saw you standing over will, I know that the people you were dealing with, they needed to think that will was dead--

John: Hey, I was just reacting on the fly, and I'm really sorry you got pulled into this.

Paul: I'm never gonna forget waking up in that crypt... and the moment that I realized that will is still alive.

John: You're starting to have feelings for him, aren't you?

Eve: Brady, I appreciate everything you just said to me, but if maggie wants to have a private word with you, it's fine, really.

Brady: Well, I don't like the idea.

Eve: Look--

Brady: I don't like it.

Eve: It's fine, okay? I know what she's gonna say, anyway. She's gonna say that I'm a terrible person, and that I'm only gonna break your heart. And she's too much of a lady to say that in front of me, but she's gonna say it eventually, so we might as well just get it over with, okay? Okay, maggie. Come on. Do your worst. There's absolutely nothing that you can say that is gonna hurt me, because my heart has already been broken. I lost my daughter, and you know as well as I do there's no pain in the world that could ever touch that. But I'm going into this with-- whatever this is with brady-- with my eyes open. And I certainly hope that he will do the same, with or without your advice.

Victor: Now there's the lady who has watched her stories one time too many.

Brady: Will you just stop with your comments?

Maggie: Victor, enough.

Victor: What? I waited till she left the room, didn't I?

Brady: Well, I-- I still heard it, granddad.

Maggie: Okay, stop it, the both of you.

Victor: She's right, brady. I'm sorry. I'm truly sorry. And I'm more than sorry to have upset you when you so totally proved your loyalty to this family. I'm proud of you.

Maggie: And I'm ashamed of you. I gave you a chance to own up, and you didn'T.

Brady: What are you talking about?

Victor: She knows.

Brady: She knows what?

Maggie: I know what you're doing to eve. And I think it's disgusting.

Chad: See, that was a rhetorical question. I know what happened last night. You crashed our date, tried to weasel your way in between me and my wife, again. It needs to stop. You're after my wife, I know it.

Stefan: That's just not true.

Chad: No, I'm not blind. I see the way that you look at her.

Stefan: Mm. You threatened by that?

Chad: Not at all. She just doesn't need to put up with it. She's not interested in you. She never will be.

[Mysterious music]

Gabby: Mmm.

Stefan: I wouldn't be so sure about that.

Abigail: What's going on?

Chad: We were just, uh-- we were talking. Apparently, stefan thinks that he has a chance with you. What do you say?

We gave people

cottonelle® to try and asked

Eve: Give me this one. All right, now, today, I want you to play nice, all right, and not call anybody any mean names like your great-grandma maggie is calling me right now. Can you do that?

Maggie: You're working her, trying to get that poor woman to fall in love with you so you can get basic black back. What would you call a woman who did something like that?

Victor: Eve.

Maggie: [Sighs] I can't believe that you would stoop so low just to get victor to reinstate you at titan. Are you that threatened by sonny?

Brady: Did you tell her?

Victor: She was snooping on my phone.

Maggie: I wasn't snooping. I was looking for valentine's day photos of the two of us. Why am I not surprised that you're lying to me? What is this, the 100th time? You have lied to me about everything from daniel's parentage to bringing xander back to kill deimos. And now this. I've forgiven you everything...

[Chuckles] Oh, which makes me such a fool.

Victor: No, no, maggie, you're not a fool.

Brady: Maggie? Are you gonna tell eve?

Maggie: Mm, I was about to, just now. But I think it should come from you, brady, although god knows what it's gonna do to eve. I am so disappointed in you. You have had your heart broken so many times, so you know what it feels like, and yet you're ready to do this again to eve? She's not my favorite person, but she doesn't deserve this.

Abigail: Do you stand a chance with me? No way in hell. I'm completely in love with my husband, and aside from that, you'd literally be the last person on earth I could ever be interested in.

Chad: Well, that settles that. Um, there's fresh coffee and muffins, okay?

Abigail: Thank you.

Chad: I'm gonna take thomas to his play date.

Abigail: Okay.

Chad: All right, love you. See you.

Abigail: What is wrong with you?

Stefan: Can the performance. We need to talk about last night.

Abigail: What about last night?

Stefan: You're joking, right? I mean, your--your husband's gone, so you can stop pretending. I know you remember what happened between us just as well as I do.

Abigail: I have no clue what you're talking about. Before we hit the beach,

Stefan: You really don't remember?

Abigail: I remember that you crashed our valentine's day dinner at doug's place, I remember that you sent us champagne that we did not want, and then I remember that chad and I went home, and we spent the rest of the night together.

Stefan: You don't remember coming into my room?

Abigail: No, because I didn'T.

Stefan: Yes, you did. You not only came into my room, but you--

Abigail: Look, whatever you're trying to do can stop.

Stefan: I'm trying to jog your memory here.

Abigail: No, you are trying to upset me, you're trying to shake me up, and you're trying--

Stefan: No, no. No, I'm not. I swear, I'm telling you the truth. I'm worried about you.

Abigail: Look, I know what you're trying to do. That's why you were talking to me about my mental illness the other day, but it's not gonna work. I have already told you that there's no chance that I could ever be interested in you, and I know that you are responsible for killing andre.

Stefan: I'm sorry, what?

Abigail: Yeah. Chad's right. You had it in for andre, so you hired some girl to dress up like gabi so that you could frame her and get her out of the company.

Stefan: So that's what chad thinks.

Abigail: You're so smug. You are so sure of yourself, and you keep trying to con us, but it's not gonna work, because you're not very good at it. And you're not fooling anyone.

Stefan: You're the one trying to fool everyone. Okay? This is the craziest thing I have ever heard. We both know that you're the one that was on that security footage.

[Dramatic music]

Lucas: Are you sure you're okay?

Will: Yes. Yeah. I'm fine, dad. Thank you. Um, billie, right? It's--it's nice to meet you, uh, when we are both conscious.

Billie: I'm--I'm really sorry.

Will: It's okay. I mean, now I can cross premature burial off my bucket list.

Billie: You had premature burial on your bucket list?

Kate: He's joking, billie, honestly. He's trying to make light of the fact that you and john put him through a traumatic ordeal.

Will: It's--it's okay. I'm--I'm--I mean, I'm fine. I--I was scared, but the good thing was, I wasn't alone. Paul was with me the whole time.

Paul: Well, will and I, we've--we've gotten closer over the last few weeks.

John: Yeah. So what about sonny?

Paul: Yeah. I'm not over him yet. But I can't spend my life looking backwards. I need to move on. You know, and spending time with will, it helps with that.

John: Huh. Passed out in a crypt?

[Both laugh]

Paul: Yeah, well, we got through it together. It's been a long time since I got through anything with anyone else.

John: Yeah. Well... it's kind of nice to know that something good came out of this.


Maggie: I saw the look on eve's face just now when you gave your little aria about her many charms. She cares about you. And you heard her talk about her losing her daughter, which is the greatest pain that there is. The woman defines "vulnerable," and you're using her. That is so cruel. Brady, that's beneath you. I thought you were better than this.

Brady: I'm sorry you think that.

[Dramatic music]

Victor: Maggie, wait. The fact that you didn't say anything to eve proves to me that you still love me.

Maggie: I can't deny that I love you, victor. But I've had it with you.

Lucas: I'm glad we have a chance to be alone.

Will: Me too.

Lucas: You're not in any rush now, are you?

Will: Uh, no.

Lucas: Good. Because we do need to talk. You know that, right?

Will: Okay. Sounds serious.

Lucas: No, it's not serious. I mean, it's more serious for me. You know, I... as part of my recovery, I have to make amends, and--and I need to make amends to you... not only because it's part of my program, but... because you're my son, and I love you.

Will: It's okay. I mean, you--you didn't do anything to me.

Lucas: Yeah, well, sins of omission are still sins, but... I wasn't there for you. I wasn't there for you when you were going through all that stuff with susan and your mother. I was too busy acting like a drunk, full of self-pity and no good to anybody.

Will: Dad, you're-- you're going through a lot. I understand. You don't have to be so harsh on yourself.

Lucas: No, it's not an excuse. I mean, I... thank god I came out the other side. For me, I think the key for moving on is just to take one day at a time. But I want you to know that, um... I'm here for you. You know, if you need me. From now on, no matter what.

[Tender music]

Billie: I'm not doing it.

Kate: You have to do it. Billie, lucas may not be drinking, but just the fact that he's thinking about dating chloe means he's not thinking straight.

Billie: Did you ever ask yourself why you have never approved of any of our relationships? I mean, do you really think you're an expert on men?

Kate: I learn from my mistakes, billie. Your brother simply repeats them.

Lucas: Still trying to run our lives, mom?

Kate: Well, someone has to.

Lucas: I told you, chloe isn't gonna be back for a few weeks. Will you just give it a rest? Please.

Kate: Okay, no, because I know you're just waiting for her to come back to town.

Lucas: Because she is good for me. She helped me get sober. Would you rather I still drink and pine after adrienne?

Kate: Okay, please, don't even mention that one.

Lucas: Have you liked any girl I've ever been interested in? I mean, just-- just keeping track. No? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Kate: Lucas, really? Really? You think that I want you to be alone for the rest of your life? No, I don't, and any one of those women, any one of them, I would have been okay with if they had just shown you a modicum of respect. A modicum of respect.

Lucas: Yeah, I heard you. I heard you. Billie, as much as i love having you here in salem, aren't you just a little bit glad you're not staying here?

Kate: Okay.

Lucas: Just a little? Yeah? That's what I thought.

Eve: I feel like I need to apologize to you for saying--hmm, maybe talking bad about your grandma-- your great-grandma maggie. But you know--you know we're family, and I just feel like I can be honest with you, okay? Because I'll tell you the truth. At first, I really didn't like your daddy very much. You know what? I just-- I just felt that he wasn't being nice to his-- to his grandpa victor, you know? Then we started to have fun together. You know, adult fun, but you know, we-- we decided that that kind of fun, well, we wanted to hold off a little bit, and become friends. Get to know each other better. Right? But I really, deep down, think your daddy is a great guy.

[Soft music]

Paul: Yeah, something good did come out of all this, for sure, because... well, though it's-- it's complicated, obviously...

John: Of course. Yeah.

Paul: Um... spending time with will is-- is helping me to move on.

John: That's good to know.

Paul: Yeah.

John: Yeah. Hey. Uh, will, um... I just want to say I'm-- I'm sorry that I shook you up with that mausoleum thing.

Will: Uh, it's okay. I'm--I am sorry that I assumed the worst about you. I should have trusted that marlena knew the kind of man you really are.

John: I'm lucky to have her.

Will: Yeah. Uh, so I--I talked to your comrade-in-arms, billie, and she's leaving tomorrow. Did you know that?

John: So soon? Uh, no, I didn'T. Thanks for the heads-up. I'm gonna shoot on over to the hospital and say good-bye. I'll talk to you soon.

Paul: Yeah.

John: Yeah. Will.

Will: I--sorry I interrupted your conversation. It looked pretty intense. What were you guys talking about?

Paul: You.

Abigail: Please explain what you mean by that.

Stefan: Nothing. It was nothing. I, uh... I need to go.

Chad: What was all that about?

Abigail: Stefan being obnoxious, as always.

[Door closes] He's so smug, and he acts like everything that he says is right, and we both know that he lies about everything.

Chad: Yeah.

Abigail: I'm sorry, chad, I just... I lost it. I totally confronted him about andre.

Chad: You did--you did what?

Abigail: I was blurting out about how much I hated him, and then I told him it was because of what he did to andre.

Chad: So you--you told him that we think he did it?

Abigail: I know. I'm sorry, I didn't mean-- I shouldn't have, but I-- he just has this way of getting under my skin. He makes me so mad, and then knowing what he did to andre makes me even madder. And of course he goes and denies that he ever hired a woman to dress up like gabi, and I know he's lying. Honestly, I think he was getting ready to tell me he knew who she was. I...

[Dramatic music]

Abigail: I think I should talk to stefan more.

Chad: No, no...

Abigail: No, honestly, I think he would tell me something.

Chad: Listen, he's already made it clear that he has a thing for you, all right? I--I want you to be careful.

Abigail: No, but he knows that I can't stand him, and if I could get him to say something, then maybe we could clear gabi.

Chad: You've already provoked him, okay? We--we--don't do that again.

Abigail: It's not--

Chad: No, listen. I'm not trying to blame you. It's just... he's--I think stefan is dangerous, and I'm worried about you. That's all. Okay? I'm just--I'm worried.

[Cell phone ringing]

[Sighs] It's the conference call. Okay? I--

Abigail: Go. It's okay.

Chad: Are you okay?

Abigail: Yeah.

Chad: Okay.

[Ringing continues] Yeah?

[Tense music]

Abigail: Oh...

[Exhales sharply] Oh...

John: You were amazing. I want to thank you for all your help.

Kate: And, john, I'd like to thank you for getting my daughter shot, for having my grandson held captive in a mausoleum. Nice. Thank you. 'Cause you know, we've been working so hard to make life normal for will, especially after the traumatic events that he's been through, so please, in the future, try not to drag my family and my loved ones into danger, okay?

Billie: Mom, that's enough. John didn't drag me into anything. I did this willingly.

John: And I owe you big time. If it weren't for you, billie, we might not have had a happy ending here. Don't be a stranger.

[Door opens]

Brady: The nanny took tate to his play date.

Eve: Okay. Maggie give you an earful?

Brady: Yes, she did.

Eve: She said everything I said she would, didn't she? How I should stay away from you and what an awful person I am.

Brady: No. No, actually, she told me what an awful person I am.

Victor: The suitcase is a little over the top, wouldn't you think?

Maggie: This isn't a dramatic gesture. I'M... I'm moving out.

Victor: What?

Maggie: I can't take it anymore. I've played the dutiful wife for years. I've backed you up. I've covered all the terrible things that you do. I've been loyal. I've kept my mouth shut. I've forgiven you so many times I've lost count.

Victor: I know, maggie.

Maggie: [Sighs] I know we've both had our health scares, so we know that life can be fragile... and short. See, I believed that when you retired...

[Inhales shakily] That you were gonna slow down, and you were gonna stop and smell the roses. Spend more time with your family, and you see, that turned out to be the biggest lie of all.

Victor: Maggie, we just came back from a wonderful trip. What more do you want?

Maggie: I want more of you! You. It's not just about an occasional trip, or a romantic dinner once in a while. I see you sneaking looks at your phone. You want control... of your business and your family, and that's all you care about. I mean, whether it's sonny or will, or justin and adrienne, or brady and nicole, or theresa or eve, you just can't stop yourself from interfering.

Victor: Maggie, I love you.

Maggie: I need you...

[Sobs] To listen and to be heard and to be respected.

Victor: Maggie, I respect you more than any person I've ever known.

Maggie: Oh, no, it's just talk. It's talk.

[Sighs] I gave you a chance to tell eve the truth, and you just stood there and said nothing. So I hope that brady will do the right thing, 'cause if he doesn't, then I still can... whether I'm living here or not. Which I won't be.

Victor: Maggie, please, don't leave me.

Is it possible to stop daily

[Somber music]

Maggie: I've given you ultimatums before, and I've said it was the last straw, and then I've forgiven you. Because I can see that you love me and that you would be in pain if I left.

Victor: More than you know.

Maggie: But I'm in aa, and I should have known I was enabling you. See, I let you think that because I loved you I would... I would put up with anything, forgive you anything. But I won'T.

Victor: I can't believe you're leaving me because of eve. I mean, she's not worth--

Maggie: It's not about her! Sadly, it's about this thing you've cooked up with brady to screw her over isn't even the worst thing that you've ever done. But... it's the straw that broke this camel's back. It opened my eyes, and it made me realize that I can't take it anymore.

Victor: Maggie, I can't live without you.

Maggie: I know. But until you're ready to make some real changes... I can'T... I can't live with you.

Eve: So what are you talking about, brady?

Brady: I have a confession to make.

Will: You were talking about me? What, uh--what were you saying?

Paul: Are you fishing for compliments?

Will: No, I don't think so. I--I mean, I'm guessing that you were probably telling him what a pain in the ass I was.

Paul: [Laughs] That's not what I was saying.

Will: Okay, then-- then what were you saying?

Paul: I'm not gonna tell you what I was saying.

Will: Why not?

Paul: Because then it would go to your head.


Billie: I know you think I used you as an excuse to come and help john, but I didn'T. I was worried about you. I'm sorry that you lost andre. I was happy you found love, and I hope you find it again.

Kate: I don't think that's in the cards for me, but I hope it is for you.

Billie: [Chuckles]

Kate: With the appropriate person, of course.

[Tense music]

Gabby: Time for gabby to come out and play.

Chad: Abby?

Gabby: Well... looks like someone worked up a sweat.
