Provided By Suzanne

Jj: Hey, look, I'm all for you winning abigail back, but... but right now, she's angry.

Chad: Which means I'll have to try harder. I'm not giving up, jj. You on board?

Jj: What can I do to help?

[Quiet music]

[Doorbell rings]

Abigail: What are you doing here?

Melinda: I'm hoping for justice.

Abigail: Well, it's, uh, it's not a good time.

Melinda: Well, then I can come back tomorrow. And the day after that. And the day after that.

[Soft, edgy music]

Chloe: Oh...

Brady: Look at that smile, right?

Chloe: [Laughs] I know. Look how much he's grown! Oh, so sweet. And a day at the beach in january? That's not bad.

Brady: Ah... you remember how he was so quiet? Used to never talk, and now he's talking up a storm. He makes himself laugh. He cracks himself up.

Chloe: Oh, I'm so glad you got to spend time with him. So sweet, your little guy. I know at this age, every day seems like there's a new milestone.

Brady: Mm-hmm. I just, I-- I can't stop thinking about all the milestones that I'M... missing.

Chloe: I know.

Eve: Well, well, aren't you two cozy? Again.

[Edgy music]

[Somber music]

[Knocking on door]

Sarah: Surprise!

[Both laugh]

Ciara: Un...believable! So you and claire put your heads together and came up with the brilliant idea to break up tripp and me?

Ben: Ciara--

Ciara: I heard her leave you a message about your little deal, okay? I busted her, and she admitted to everything, so don't even try to deny it, ben!

Ben: I'm not going to. I'm guilty as charged.

[Tense music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Ciara: I should have known something was up that day at the square. You and claire--all chummy? The handshake? I asked. And what did you say? That you were just--you were just thanking her for trying to help you get a job? What bull!

Ben: Ciara, I didn't want to lie to you.

Ciara: But you did.

[Softly] Why? Why would you even do that?

Ben: Because I wanted to be with you... so much. I thought it was the only way I'd actually have a chance with you.

Melinda: I want you to reconsider. I want you to press charges against gabi hernandez.

[Uneasy music]

Abigail: I was very clear at the police station. I have no intention of pressing charges against gabi. I want this over.

Melinda: The woman drugged you. She kidnapped you. Made people think that you were insane. She tried to ruin your life, and you're just letting her walk away, no price paid.

Abigail: No. Gabi has to live with what she's done, and that's punishment enough.

Melinda: I'm sure that sentiment is a comfort to you, but that's not how our justice system works. Gabi committed multiple crimes, and she needs to pay for what she did. That's why I'm here. So that you can see justice done.

Chad: Yes, I'm planning a huge dinner and julie's gonna help me set everything up at doug's place.

Jj: That sounds great but, chad, if you want me to talk abigail into going, you might wanna rethink that. I'm not exactly her favorite person at the moment.

Chad: Then join the club, my man. Unfortunately, this is gonna be a bit more complicated. (Vo) they're all going in the

Eric: Oh, my god, can I just tell you how happy I am to see this little girl?

Sarah: [Giggles] Well, we figured since big brother was napping and grandma maggie was on the elliptical, we'd come and visit her main man.

Eric: You didn't happen to mention this little field trip to maggie or chloe, did ya?

Sarah: I...left my mom a note, and she can call chloe.

Eric: Yeah, well, if you mentioned it to either one of them, they probably would have just said no.

Sarah: That is not true. Exactly. Also, you have to admit I'm not exactly chloe's favorite person on the planet, so...just figured I'd let my mom talk to her.

Eric: Yeah, well, it doesn't matter. I'm just happy to see my favorite little girl.


[Both laughing]

Sarah: I think she's really happy to see you too.

Chloe: Oh, my, look at the time. I've gotta get to work. You need some help, send me a smoke signal or something.

Brady: Mm.

Eve: [Chuckles] She is such a clever one, isn't she?

Brady: Looks like somebody needs a little more retail therapy.

Eve: Thought you said that you two weren't together.

Brady: We. Are. Friends, eve.

Eve: Oh, well, judging by that little...clinch, you're more than friends.

Brady: Not that I owe you any explanation, but I've been a little upset because I just got back from seeing my boy.

Eve: Well, how is my nephew?

Brady: He's great. Which makes it that much harder to be away from him. I don't like being separated from him--you know that.

Eve: Mmm. That's all big, bad eve's fault, isn't it?

Brady: I didn't say that.

Eve: No. You didn't have to.

Brady: No, I didn'T. And not to rehash, but I only did what I did because I was trying to help you. But lucky for me, there are people out there that do appreciate my help, and that would be jack. In fact, he's waiting right now to have dinner with me. Yeah, that's right. Probably with lots of, uh, i don't know, candles and wine.

Brady: Oh...

Eve: So...toodles.

Brady: Yeah. You know what, hold on, eve, I wanna--I need to talk to you, all right?

Eve: Well, I think I've said all I need to say.

Brady: Hey. I haven'T.

Ben: For what it's worth, our little conspiracy was nothing more than claire trying to push you and me together so she could have alone time with tripp.

Ciara: That is so not the point. You lied to me. You manipulated me. You know, I expected this from claire. But from you? After everything we've been through at the cabin, I just-- I thought that I could trust you.

Ben: Is this really what you're upset about? Or are you just looking for an excuse to end things?

Abigail: Gabi and I have both lost more than either of us ever imagined or deserved, and our children have suffered in the process, so it needs to end.

Melinda: And it can. With gabi behind bars where she belongs.

Abigail: No. No. No more. We have both hurt each other enough. We're even.

Melinda: What if it isn't over for gabi? What if she comes after you again? I'm giving you the opportunity to protect yourself, your family.

Abigail: Gabi and i understand each other. We understand each other, and it's over. I would really appreciate if you would understand that as well.

Melinda: You have no idea how wrong-headed this decision is.

Abigail: Well, it's my decision to make.

Melinda: Then you leave me no choice. Crimes have been committed, and justice will be served--one way or the other. If you're not gonna help me prosecute gabi, I'm gonna prosecute chad dimera instead.

Jj: Wow, I mean, yeah, that's a great plan, but...look, I'm just gonna say it.

Chad: Well, let me say it for you. I betrayed the woman that i love. I lied to her, I tricked her, I forgot to believe in her, and I know the chances of her coming back to me are... one in a billion.

Jj: Yeah, but you're going for it anyway.

Chad: Well, I'm an optimist. Will you help?

Jj: Feeling kind of optimistic myself. Yeah, count me in.

[Phone beeps]

[Soft, thoughtful music]

The day after chemo might

mean a trip back to

Jj: You working?

Haley: Meeting. Rescheduled from earlier. With your aunt kayla. The big "talk" about the "incident."

Jj: How'd it go?

Haley: Well, turns out the administration really frowns on staff who try to off themselves on hospital property. As if that's what I did.

Jj: Right, it's-- it was an accident.

Haley: Totally. That I used meds that didn't belong to me kinda made it worse,'s the part you'll like.

[Laughs] I'm getting counseling.

Jj: That'S...that's great. I'm glad you're--glad you're ready to get help.

Haley: I don't need help. If I didn't agree to see a therapist, dr. Johnson was ready to suspend me... or worse, and-- I can't afford to lose this job.

Jj: Well...whatever gets you in the door. It's a start.

Haley: Whatever. I already have an appointment. With A...dr. Evans.

Jj: Dr. Evans. Marlena. Yeah, yeah, she's, uh, she's the best. She's helped so many people, including me. She's really easy to talk to. Someone you can trust.

Haley: [Small laugh] I guess. As long as it means i get to keep my job, I'll...tell her anything she wants to hear.

Jj: Like, uh... like what you're keeping from kayla?

Haley: [Whispering] How the hell do you know about that?

Brady: Why are you doing this?

Eve: Doing what, brady? Telling the truth about what i see between you and chloe? Or about my plans with the dashing jack deveraux?

Brady: Jennifer. Why are you torturing her like this? I mean, if you wanna be mad at me, that's fine, I understand that. But she doesn't deserve this... at all.

Eve: Why does everybody always come to her defense? She destroyed your relationship with your brother, she destroyed my relationship with you--now you should tell me why I should give a damn about her.

Brady: I'm not telling you to give a damn about her.

Eve: Yeah, you are!

Brady: I'm telling you to do the right thing. Eve, you walked into that new years eve party and made an announcement that you had A... a wrecking ball for jennifer. Don't you pretend like this is anything other than punishment.

Eve: I did say that, didn't I?

Brady: You did.

Eve: Well, I guess I just got caught up in the moment. And wow, what a moment it was.

Brady: Yeah, it was. Look at you. I mean, look how proud you are. But where is jack? Is he reunited with his family? Is he trying to made amends with his wife? No. He's in your hotel room. Getting ready to have some-- some cozy dinner with candles, and you'll probably be hanging all over him. You'll probably ask him to dance you to the moon and back, huh? Is that your line?

Eve: Ha ha ha. You aren't upset about little old jenny. You are jealous, brady black!

Chad: Hey, how's it going?

Julie: Oh, chad, I am so glad you called. The loveliest table at doug's place awaits you.

Chad: That's great.

Julie: I'm ordering flowers. Every one of them is abigail's favorite.

Chad: That's awesome. Look, there's been a change of plans.

Julie: Oh?

Chad: I'll fill you in later. The important thing is, jj's in.

Julie: Well, of course. He just wants to see his sister where she belongs--as we all do.

Chad: I hate to ask, but i need one more favor.

Julie: Ask away.

Chad: You, uh, you were there for abby when--when none of us were. She trusts you. Is there any chance that you can convince her to be there tonight?

Julie: My darling, I promise I'll...I'll give it everything I've got.

Chad: Well, there's no way she can say no.

Julie: [Laughs] Not on my watch!

Chad: Julie...thank you. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you. I just want tonight to be special.

Abigail: Prosecute chad for what?

Melinda: Kidnapping. He took you from your home and held you hostage at your family's cabin.

Abigail: No.

Melinda: Stefan, your husband at the time, reported him to the police.

Abigail: You would need my testimony in order to charge chad, and I'm not gonna do it. I will not put the father of my children behind bars.

Melinda: He took your baby from you, tricked you into a padded cell. Surely, you must be furious!

Abigail: I know what happened. And that is between chad and me.

Melinda: I sent an innocent woman to prison for murder because of you. I have guilty people that i can't prosecute because of you. I've worked too hard to build my career.

Abigail: There it is. This isn't about justice. This is about you getting a win. And I'm not gonna help you do it, so you can just get the hell out of my house.

[Dark music]

Ciara: I'm mad because you lied to me. Just go. Just go, get outta here. I'm sure stefan probably has a bunch more people for you to kidnap.

Ben: I don't work for stefan anymore.

Ciara: You don't? You quit?

Ben: Stefan was arrested for treason. Your buddy chad is back in charge of dimera, and his first act as ceo was to fire me.

Ciara: I see. So if stefan were still free, you'd still be working for him? Business as usual?

Ben: Ciara, you don't understand--

Ciara: No, I understand, ben. I understand completely.

Haley: What is up with you? Huh? Always up in my business and blabbing it to the world?

Jj: I haven't blabbed anything. I heard you on the phone earlier.

Haley: Oh, so you eavesdropped.

Jj: I happened to walk by... okay? I don't mean to pry. I'm just concerned. I wanna help.

Haley: What's your idea of help, hmm? Running to your aunt with something you don't know anything about?

Jj: I could have gone straight to kayla after you tried to kill yourself, but i didn'T. I kept your secret. And I'm going to keep this one.

Haley: You're a pain in the ass!

Jj: It's a gift.

[Haley scoffs] But I also happen to be a damn good friend. I...I just know from my own experience... after what you've been through, you need friends.

Julie: Isn't it a beautiful day?


Chloe: You're in a good mood. And you canceled all of tonight's reservations? We almost had a full house!

Julie: I rented out the entire restaurant to chad dimera. He's trying to woo abigail back again. I'm going to give him the perfect setting to do it in.

Chloe: Ah. Definitely a grand gesture. Julie, next time you rent out the restaurant as a grand gesture when we almost have a full house, you have to let me know. If there's anything that drives me crazy, it's being left out of the loop about things that directly concern me.

Eric: You are just [Laughs] So smart!

Sarah: Hey, she's got it down!

Eric: Yes, you do. And there is a what?

Holly: There is a rabbit.

Eric: That is a rabbit!

[Sarah chuckles] Know who this is?

Holly: [Gasps] It's mommy!

Eric: That's right. That's your mommy. You know what? This is actually one of my favorite photos that I took of her! And she was so happy that day. Every time I look at it...

Holly: Mm-hmm!

Eric: You know what it makes me think about?

Holly: Mm-hmm.

Eric: It makes me think about you.

Holly: It no fit.

Eric: Yeah, those big eyes of yours... and smile. Never be sad... 'cause your mommy, she loved you so much.

Holly: Mmm.

Eric: I know she may not be here...but she's always gonna be watching you from heaven.

[Whispers] Always know that.

Brady: Do I wanna see you with jack deveraux? No, not really. But that's not what this is about--this is about you, the eve that I know. And right now, you are not the eve that I know and that I l-- I know--I know the eve that-- that could take a hit to the heart and then be able to find forgiveness. I know a woman who used to keep her pockets full of food so my son could feed the ducks and the woman that would stay up with my boy until his fever broke and wouldn't leave his bedside--that's the woman i know. My son, um...he asks about you. As a matter of fact he, uh-- I'm gonna pull this up for you here-- drew a picture not for you but of you.

Eve: Hmm.

Brady: Yeah. He thinks you'd make one heck of a mermaid. Think he did a pretty good job.

Eve: He's quite an artist.

Brady: Well, he remembers how kind you were to him.

Eve: And what has kindness gotten me, brady? Hmm? Absolutely nothing. I lost you, my business-- everything. So you know what? I'm tired of losing. I wanna win. And this time, I will.

Brady: Is this your idea of winning? Conning some poor amnesiac into being with you? Turning him against his family and his loved ones?

[Stammers] Wh-wh-what're you gonna get out of this, eve, huh? Revenge? Is that the big payoff here?

Eve: You know, brady... don't sell revenge short.

Brady: You're better than this.

Eve: Well, you know we all can't be mermaids, can we? So, if you will excuse me, dashing jack is waiting.

Eric: Is that kid amazing, or what?

Sarah: Oh, no, she's definitely amazing.

[Giggles] And you... the way that you handled that conversation about nicole's picture, it was... it was perfect.

Eric: Yeah. I was just thinking about what nicole would want me to say. And to be honest... there's one thing I promised-- to give that little girl absolute honesty. About everything.

Sarah: It won't always be easy.

Eric: Yeah, but there will be a day when she asks me about her father... his death, and that I was the reason for it. And then maybe one day she'll hate me because of it.

Sarah: Or... she'll understand that you're a good man who made a terrible mistake.

Eric: [Light laugh] Yeah. This is the way I pictured it. You know, being with holly. Just watching her grow up. It's what nicole wanted. She seemed pretty happy, didn't she?

Sarah: She did.

Haley: This isn't some twisted thing where you think I'll be so grateful for your constant and unwanted attention that you think I'll...

[Laughs] Fall into bed with you?

Jj: No, haley, there's-- there's no agenda with me. Look, I'm just trying to pay it forward. You gotta understand. People were really good to me when I screwed up. And I'm not trying to say that you screwed up as much as I did. But I'm just trying to do the same for you. I just--I just--I want you to know that I do understand. And I'd like to understand even more. Can't unless you tell me.

Haley: I definitely messed up...big time.

[Beep beep]

Jj: Look, this is work. I have to take this. But I'll be right back, okay? Don't go anywhere.

[Phone rings]


Haley: What? Yes, I know! Stop pressuring me.

Abigail: Hey! What are you doing here? I thought that you were working tonight.

Julie: No! Doug and I have a much better plan. We are gonna babysit charlotte.

Abigail: Oh, that's really sweet of you but, um, I'm not going anywhere tonight.

Julie: Oh, yes, you are.

Abigail: What?

Julie: Yes. Chloe and I have closed doug's place. There's going to be a special event. So we want you to go upstairs and change into something beautiful and get yourself over there.

Abigail: Julie, what are you talking about?

Julie: It's a surprise.

Abigail: Well, uh, my last surprise was a father that didn't remember me, so I think I'm good on surprises right now. I'm gonna pass.

Julie: No, no, no. This one is gonna make you very happy, I promise. Certain people have gone to a lot of trouble to arrange it all.

Abigail: Certain people? Uh, do you mean chad?

Julie: I'm not going to spoil the surprise. You won't get a word out of me!

Abigail: No, julie, just... call him and tell him I'm not going.

Chad: Hey. Glad you picked up. Uh...I have a few things that I wanted to run by you for tonight.

Ciara: If stefan hadn't been arrested, you'd still be snatching moms from their kids. Cleaning up his messes.

Ben: Why don't you let me explain why I'm here, ciara.

Ciara: What is there to explain, ben? You know how I feel about you working for a slime like stefan. I don't want to give you some ultimatum--I mean, we're just dating, right? But I so wanted you to make the right choice. But you didn'T. It was made for you. Which means that you weren't gonna do the right thing. Which means that you really didn't care about me at all.

Ben: Well, I can see that you've made up your mind already. So I won't waste your time, ciara. I guess this is good-bye.

Brady: I mean, I tried to talk to eve--I tried to get her to drop this vendetta against jennifer.

Chloe: And you, too, probably.

Brady: Oh, I can take care of myself, but jennifer doesn't deserve this. I really thought I was getting through to eve, and...I even brought up tate. She shut me right down. She didn't care.

Chloe: Hmm. Well, eve has lost so much, and you were the first person she trusted in a while. And after losing you, maybe she just doesn't feel like she can be vulnerable again.

Brady: Oh, that settles it. I'm an ass!

Chloe: No, brady, this is not on you. The only person who can save eve is eve.

Brady: Why is there nobody here, chloe? Is it--the restaurant is--

Chloe: Why is it empty? Well, because julie decided to rent it out for a private event without bothering to tell me, so here I am.

Brady: She didn't tell you. Okay, well, then that means-- that would mean you're free.

Chloe: Yep.

Brady: So that would mean you have to eat, so we should go to dinner. Come on, my treat. We'll go to, uh, italian.

Chloe: Oh. Thank you. Well, as tempting as pasta is, I think I kinda miss those two cannolis over at maggie's house.

Brady: I don't blame you. Holly and parker are very lucky to have you.

Chloe: Thank you.

Brady: But I want a rain check, okay, on dinner.

Chloe: You got it.

Brady: All right. See ya.

[Soft dinner music plays]

[Line ringing]

Chloe: Hey, maggie, it's me. It turns out I don't have to work tonight, so I'll come by and pick up the kids. Holly's where? Wait, I-I'm sorry--you didn't bother to call me and tell me that? No, no, it's okay. Thank you, maggie. There's nothing to fix. I'll handle it myself. Okay, bye.

Julie: Okay, fine. It's chad. You dragged it out of me. He's very excited about tonight.

Abigail: Well, good for chad. I'm not going.

Julie: Didn't I believe you, and nobody else in town did? Didn't I find the true dna results about the baby? Didn't I get pushed down a staircase and wind up in the hospital? Now, all I'm asking in return is for you to have a wonderful evening with a man who adores you.

Abigail: So you're--you're emotionally blackmailing me.

Julie: Is it working?

Abigail: Oh, my god, julie! I love you so much, and I do owe you, but having a dinner with chad isn't gonna change what he did to me.

Julie: I don't understand it. I don't understand how you can not give the time of day to this poor guy, and yet you won't testify against gabi hernandez, certifiable bitch, who is now walking around town free to insult and intimidate and threaten anyone who knows the truth about her.

Abigail: Julie, just let it go...please? And while you're at it, just let go of this whole idea of me going to dinner with chad, okay? It's just...not gonna happen. Let me go check on charlotte.

Julie: You're not being fair.

Abigail: There is no fair in any of this.

Julie: You are not giving chad a chance to make everything up to you. That's not like you, abigail.

Abigail: Well, maybe I've learned. Maybe I've learned, you know, to protect myself--even against the man who swears that he loves me.

Julie: Sweetheart, love--it's never perfect. Doug and I hurt each other many times through the years... sometimes so badly, I thought we could never get over the pain. But we did, because we forgave. Forgiveness is hard. But because of the forgiveness, we were blessed with this long, wonderful life... life of sharing love and laughter, adventures... joy! That's all I want for you and chad.

Abigail: I--

[Sighs] Ohh....

Ciara: Wait. You're twisting what I said.

Ben: I'm not twisting anything, ciara.

[Light laugh] I'm being honest with myself. Finally. Because I was crazy to think that we would actually end up together... that we could be together, that I'm to escape my past. It's never gonna happen. Everybody's always gonna think the worst of ben weston. Including you.

Ciara: No, ben--

Ben: There's nothing else to say--there's no ben. I get it. My god, I get it. That's just the way it is.

[Somber music]

Ben: I know there are far crazier people than me who do find love... so I'm not giving up hope. And you can't either. I won't let you.

Ciara: Hey, it's ciara. I miss you more, I swear. Hey, how would you feel if I, uh... if I came down for a little visit? Good. I was hoping that you would say that, because i already booked my flight to south africa. Good. I'll see you soon.


Jj: [Softly] Damn it.


[Line rings] Hey, uh, call me when you get this. You said you were gonna wait for me. Where'd you go?


Melinda: Well, at least you're on time for once. How was your meeting with dr. Johnson?

Haley: I guess it went as well as can be expected.

Melinda: Well, I hope to hell you kept your mouth shut.

Julie: [Gasps] You changed your mind.

Abigail: I'm only going along with this because you are relentless. But I want you to know that this isn't going to change my mind.

Julie: We'll see. Sweetheart, you look beautiful. Have a good time.


Abigail: [Kiss].

[Beep beep]

Chad: Wish me luck.

Eve: [Laughing] Jack? Are you ready for our dinner, huh? Jack? Oh! Where the hell did he go?

Eric: She's sleeping like an angel.

Sarah: You have the touch. It was either that or it's all those airplane rides you gave her.

[Both laugh]

[Loud knocking]

Eric: Excuse me.

Chloe: Hey.

Eric: Chloe, I--

Chloe: I'm here to pick up holly.

Eric: She's taking a nap.

Chloe: I'm sorry. I don't care.

Sarah: Well, we can bring her back to you when she wakes up.

Chloe: I want her now.

Sarah: You're being unreasonable.

Chloe: You took her without my permission.

Sarah: It's not like I'm a stranger--I'm her aunt.

Chloe: Did you put her up to this?

Sarah: No! This was my idea, so why don't you back off?

Eric: All right, enough, please. We can't keep doing this. We need to do what's best for holly.

Chloe: [Sighs]

Eric: I made a decision about her custody.
