Chad: "If you're reading this, it means you decided to accept my invitation to dinner. I can't tell you how happy that makes me, but unfortunately I won't be able to make it."
Abigail: [Scoffs] Unbelievable. He is standing me up.
[Sighs] Man, he didn't even leave me a note. Where the hell is he?
[Knock at door] He forgot his key.
[Giggles] What the hell do you want?
Maggie: Brady, it's so good to s--
Brady: You let sarah take holly over to eric's place without asking chloe's permission? Maggie, what were you doing?
Chloe: Really, what's this decision? Was she in on it?
Sarah: She has a name.
Eric: All right, you know what? Do not blame her. I'm the one who told her that I really wished I could spend time with holly.
Chloe: Well, I wish you would've asked me first!
Eric: Chloe, having holly here, spending time with her made me see what's really best for her.
Chloe: Oh, my gosh. I know where this is going.
Eric: I don't think you do.
Chloe: You want to take me to court? Is that what this is? I've spent time with holly as well, and if you're looking for a fight, I'm ready for it!
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Chloe: You were in on this, weren't you?
Eric: Don't take it out on her.
Chloe: Why not? I made it clear to you that i don't have a problem with you seeing holly. But I do have a very big problem with her deciding when and where that happens.
Eric: This is not what you believe it is.
Sarah: Eric, you know what? She's mad at me, so let me explain.
Chloe: Oh, I don't want your explanations. And you can't possibly even understand this situation. Why are you doing this, to get over the fact that rex knocked up another woman?
Sarah: Oh, is this your way of filling the void in your life ever since lucas dumped you?
Eric: Would you please stop it?
Sarah: Sorry, eric.
Chloe: [Sighs] Just say what you need to say.
Eric: What I was going to say... is that I decided not to file for custody.
Chad: You gonna let me in?
Eve: Not until you tell me what you came for.
Chad: I'm not gonna tell you what I came for until you let me in.
Eve: Well, then I guess we have a problem, don't we?
Chad: You're gonna want to hear what I have to say. It'll be worth your while, I promise.
Eve: Okay, well, I might regret this, but...
Chad: "As much as I would love to be with you tonight, you and your family, you have some serious things you got to work out. I know you're as angry with your mom and jj as you are with me. But now your dad is back, so you guys really need each other. You need to talk things through. Your mom and jj and I weren't there when you needed us to believe in you, but none of us ever stopped loving you for a single second. Chad."
Jennifer: Hey. Chad called me at work. He feels like he's the reason that you have resentment towards jj and me, so he-- he planned this dinner so maybe we could just sit and--and talk.
Abigail: Without telling me.
Jj: He was afraid you wouldn't come if-- if you knew it was us.
Abigail: So you're in on this too? Hmm, three of you against me. Nothing's changed, huh?
Haley: Will you please calm down? I did not tell kayla johnson anything.
Melinda: You had better be straight with me.
Haley: I am.
Melinda: I've worked too hard and too long to get to where I am in this town. My life is not going down the tubes because of my screwed-up little sister.

Maggie: In the first place, I was given to understand that chloe had no problem with eric seeing holly. And in the second place, I didn't give my approval. I was on the elliptical, working out. When I was done, I found a note from sarah. So get off your high horse!
Brady: Sarah--sarah took holly without asking chloe's permission or telling you in advance. And she left a note? You don't think that's pushing it just a little bit, maggie?
Maggie: Maybe. But, you know, sarah is squarely on eric's side in this. And I don't know why. And as for you... I don't think this is just about your concern for holly.
Brady: What's that supposed to mean?
Maggie: Oh, well, let's see. That I've noticed how protective you are of chloe.
Brady: She's my ex-wife. She's my friend, maggie.
Maggie: Uh-huh. You're still getting over eve. I would hate to see you getting involved with chloe again, especially now.
Chloe: Um, so what made you change your mind?
Eric: Seeing holly. Seeing how well she's doing under awful circumstances. And I'm sure that has a lot to do with being around parker and maggie and mainly you. I don't want to disrupt her life any more than it's already been.
Chloe: I'm really glad that you feel that way. And thank you. And truly, I apologize for what I said to the both of you before. It's just that I take my responsibility very seriously. And I meant what I said before. I want you to be in holly's life. But next time you want to see her, can you please just ask me in advance? I'm not trying to be a gatekeeper. I just want to keep her safe, you know?
Eric: I promise.
Melinda: I have made a lot of sacrifices for you.
Haley: You don't have to remind me.
Melinda: And I haven't asked for a whole lot in return.
Haley: Which is good, 'cause I don't have a whole lot to give, and you know it.
Melinda: You and your big secret could undo everything that I've worked so hard to build.
Haley: Don't you think I know that? Why do you think I tried to off myself?
Jj: Abigail. Abigail, don't go.
Jennifer: Abigail, please.
Abigail: After the con job that got done on me and the lies I had to defend myself against, I cannot believe that you guys thought that tricking me into having dinner was somehow a good idea.
Jj: Yeah, look, I actually thought that part was--was-- was a bad idea.
Abigail: Oh. But you, uh--you just went along with it anyway.
Jj: Look, okay, let's just-- let's just try to calm down.
Abigail: Jj, don't ever tell me to calm down again, okay? Never.
Jj: Abigail, we don't have to talk about any of that. We can just--we can just sit down and eat dinner together. We can be together.
Jj: Look, I know I miss that. I thought you might too.
Jennifer: I just thought that maybe it would be so nice for the three of us to sit down and share a meal.
Jack: Three? I was told that this would be a party of four.
(Nora) what's my tax prep going to cost?
Sarah: I feel like i owe you an apology. I shouldn't have got into it with chloe again.
Eric: It's okay.
Sarah: And I probably shouldn't have done what I did.
Eric: Did I tell you how much I appreciate your support?
[Chuckles softly] Holly forgot her dirty kitty.
Sarah: Sorry, dirty kitty?
Eric: Yeah, that's what she calls it.
Eric: But I can, uh-- you know, I'll just drop it off at chloe's tomorrow.
Sarah: Are you sure that you're okay with letting holly go? You seem sad.
Eric: Well, I was looking forward to raising a child, especially nicole'S. But, um, it was a hard decision, but I know in my heart it was the right one for holly.
Sarah: You know, chloe was right. This was none of my business. I just--I think the reason that I got involved is that I know what a great guy you are, and I think that holly will be lucky to have you in her life, no matter what your role is.
Eric: Hey, do you have to go? I was, uh-- you know, I was gonna make dinner. That is, if you don't have any other plans.
Sarah: Well... lucky for you, I don't have any plans.
Brady: Eve already let me have it about chloe, okay? I thought you'd be a little more understanding, maggie.
Maggie: You and chloe have a bad history.
Brady: That was years ago! It was a long time ago. Do you understand that chloe was the one person-- the one person that I actually could talk to about losing custody of my son? And--and--and also, I-- when I broke off my engagement with eve, maggie, she, uh-- she didn't pile on about what-- what a bitch eve was. She didn'T... she didn't do that to me. She just let me vent, and I was appreciative of that, and I needed that, and... chloe's my friend.
Maggie: Okay. So you said you saw eve?
Brady: Yeah, I did.
Maggie: I gather it didn't go very well.
Brady: Nope. I mean, I-I... I knew that she was upset about the fact that I had broken off the engagement, but, um, I didn't think she was going to take all the anger out on jennifer.
Maggie: Do you have any idea how eve found out that jack was alive?
Brady: I have no idea.
Brady: All I do know is that she plans to put her hooks into jack and not let go.
Jack: Should we sit?
Jennifer: No. First I'd like to know why you're here.
Jj: Me too.
Jack: Well, this, um... this guy named chad dimera just appeared out of the blue and--
Abigail: Why am I not surprised?
Jack: Well, he--he wanted me to meet with the three of you, and--and--and I said I already had plans with eve so I couldn't do it. But the guy wouldn't take no for an answer.
Abigail: Sounds like chad. He's my ex-husband, by the way.
Jennifer: Wait, so chad convinced you to come eat with us?
Jack: He said he'd write me a check for $10,000.
Jj: Are you kidding me?
Abigail: Oh, my god.
Jj: The--hold on. The--the only reason you would have dinner with your family is if chad paid you ten grand?
Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Dial it down a little bit. Go easy on the old man. The fact is, I-I don't know any of you from adam.
Jennifer: Jack, for all these years, weren't you even curious about where you came from?
Jack: Well, I was... I was putting all my energy into fighting my way back from the brink of death.
Abigail: So, what, chad's $10,000, that was, uh-- it was compensation for all that you've suffered?
Jack: I-I suppose you could look at it that way. The way I see it, what kind of man would I be if i continued to sponge off of eve? Let's eat.
Chad: I don't know if you've heard yet, but stefan's been arrested.
Eve: And that would be interesting to me because of what?
Chad: Well, the interesting part is, the, uh, board of dimera doesn't care to have their ceo sitting in the joint. Stefan's been removed. I'm in charge now.
Eve: Hmm! Well, goody for you, chad.
Chad: Well, I know that you worked for the company at one point... and you're at liberty. How would you like to have another job?
Andrew wanted nothing to do with his volcano demonstration.
Haley: I have to go.
Haley: I'm sorry I got in your way. You don't have to worry about me much longer.
Melinda: Haley, don't go, please.
[Sighs] If you want to know the truth, my mood today doesn't have anything to do with you. It's been a rotten day because of a woman named abigail deveraux.
Haley: Any relation to jj deveraux?
Melinda: Jj is her brother. How do you know him?
Jack: So... abigail... you were telling me that I have two grandchildren. What are their names again?
Abigail: Uh, thomas and charlotte.
Jack: Nice names. Nice. Uh... maybe I can come see them sometime soon.
Jj: Hmm, what would you charge for that, dad?
Jennifer: Jack, you--you should see little charlotte. She is precious. She is so cute. She is really starting to look just like a deveraux.
Jack: Well, that's so interesting, since neither of these kids look like me.
Jennifer: Jack, they are yours.
Jack: We boring you, son?
Jj: I was worried about a friend of mine. We were in the middle of a important conversation, and she sort of... took off.
Abigail: Why don't you do something about it if you're so worried about her, like--I don't know-- maybe go look for her?
Jj: Uh, no, this is important too. Chad went to a lot of trouble to bring us all together.
Jack: I'm sensing some friction between you two.
Jj: In this past year, I've... I've had my own problems, and I wasn't here for abigail when she needed me. I want you to know, abigail, I'm sorry about that. And I'm here now.
Jack: It couldn't have been easy for you at your age to... suddenly be the man of the family.
Jennifer: It wasn't easy for either of your children to get over you. And it wasn't for me either. So when's the wedding?
Jack: What wedding?
Jennifer: Yours, of course.
Jack: [Laughs] I have no plans to get married.
Jennifer: Well, you should tell that to eve, because she said she wasn't gonna stop until she was mrs. Jack deveraux.
Eve: I really appreciate this offer. I mean, I really do. The problem is, there's not much for me to go back to dimera for. You see, stefan, uh, liquidated basic black about the same time brady and I hit the skids.
Chad: People are beginning to realize that stefan, despite his claims to the contrary, was a lousy businessman. One of his worst decisions was letting you go. I think you'd be an asset to the company. May I?
Eve: Mm-hmm. As what?
Chad: Senior vp.
Eve: You're joking.
Chad: If I was joking, would I have this contract ready to be signed?
Maggie: You say a lot about what eve says, what eve wants now that she's back. What about you?
Brady: What about me?
Maggie: Did seeing her make you realize that you may still have feelings for her?
Brady: I mean, I--maggie, I tried to reach out to her. I tried to... I tried to find the woman that I thought she had turned into, that she had changed into, and she just-- I swear to god, I don't even recognize the woman that I used to love.
Chad: Everything look all right?
Eve: [Laughs] You serious about this salary?
Chad: Dead serious. And if you take the job, it'll be worth every penny.
Eve: [Laughs] This job isn't in salem. This job is in your office in paris.
Chad: Oui, madame.
Haley: Jj's an emt. He's in and out of the hospital all the time.
Melinda: Don't hold out on me, little sister. I catch people in lies for a living.
Haley: Okay. He was the one who found me in the on-call room. He saved my life.
Melinda: I see.
Haley: And since then, he checks in on me every so often, just to see how I'm doing.
Melinda: Oh, honey. When are you gonna learn to stop trusting people like him?
Jj: I would be careful, dad. Eve has a way of getting what she wants, and, uh, what she wants more than anything is sticking it to mom.
Jack: Well, I'm--I'm in no position to get married to anyone.
Jj: That won't stop eve.
Jack: Well... she didn't say anything to me. I'll set her straight when I see her later tonight.
Jennifer: Mm, yeah. Good luck with that.
Jack: I thought that this dinner was supposed to be about bringing abigail back into the family.
Abigail: Yeah, that's right. We should, uh, make sure chad gets his money's worth, right?
Jack: So, uh... fill me in.
Abigail: Fill you-- on what? And...
Jack: What were we like as a family?
Abigail: Uh, I'M... you know, we-- what do you want to know?
Jack: Well, uh, tell me about another dinner that we all had together. Just any dinner. Pick one at random.
Jennifer: Okay, yes, I know. I know. I know what we're gonna talk about. When we went to visit jj in london at boarding school.
Jj: I remember it was the last thing I wanted.
Abigail: Yeah, 'cause you hadn't cracked a book since the time we dropped you off in september.
Jennifer: And, jack, you were so excited because you wanted us to go to a play by shakespeare.
Abigail: Yeah, but the only one that was playing was "romeo and juliet."
Jj: Yeah, and it wasn't in the west end. It was--it was in islington.
Abigail: Islington, yeah.
Jennifer: Yes, and we took the tube, remember? We took the tube.
Abigail: Oh, we were starving, and the only place we could find to eat--remember? We found that, like, little pub.
Jj: It was a dive.
Jennifer: Oh, it was horrible.
Jj: Total dive.
Jennifer: It was the greasiest fish and chips in london, I'm sure of it.
Jj: But you actually-- you actually thought it was-- it was all good, though.
Abigail: Oh, you remember jj got--he was pretending that he was sick from the fish and chips so that he could go and hang out with some girl at some party?
Jj: Some girl? No.
Abigail: Oh, my god.
Jj: Jessica freeman-slade.
Abigail: That's right.
Jj: I was so hot for jessica freeman-slade.
Jennifer: You were not-- you were not hot for her. But you did not let him off the hook, and we worked our way to that dinky theater, didn't we?
Jj: You know, it was actually--it was pretty cool when we got inside. It was-- the seats were in rows, like you would--like you would expect, but all around the stage.
Abigail: No, wait, they weren't, though. They were, like, scattered kind of, right? And--and the actors were in modern dress, and then remember the--the actors were, like, mingling with the audience and stuff? You remember the band? Oh, he loved that.
Jj: Of course.
Jennifer: They were so good.
Jj: Drum set, bass guitar, keyboard, acoustic. It was pretty cool.
Abigail: Yeah. It was all original music too. It was really amazing.
Jj: It was like a detroit techno but different.
Abigail: Oh, you remember mercutio rapped the queen mab speech?
Jj: Yeah, yeah.
Abigail: And you were, like--
Jj: Look, I've--I've never liked a play so much in my life.
Jennifer: And do you know what I liked most about it is that I looked down the row at the three of you just loving this production... and in that very moment, I was so grateful for my family.
Jack: Did they modernize the language of the play?
Abigail: No, um, they-- they kept it the same, uh, and it worked. You actually-- you really liked it, dad.
Jj: Like, uh...
[Clears throat] Like, romeo is talking to his buddy...
Jj: Um, um, at the beginning of the play, before he even meets juliet, and he's miserable because the woman he likes says that she'd rather be celibate than be with him. And his friend is, like, making him feel worse, you know, feeling sorry for him, and right here, like, I said to myself, "dude, I get it. That was me and jessica freeman-slade."
Jennifer: Oh, my goodness, not her again. But listen. I kind of remember--I remember that speech still. Isn't that crazy?
Jennifer: "This love, that thine hast shown, doth add more grief to mine own. Love is a smoke raised with the fuel of sighs-- the fume of sighs; being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes."
Abigail: I can't believe you remember that.
Jennifer: That's pretty good.
Jack: "Being vext, a sea nourisht with loving tears. What is it else? A madness most discreet, a choking gall, a preserving sweet."
Jennifer: Jack, you remember.
Jack: No, uh, not the night... but the verse. It just sort of popped into my head. To shakespeare.
Jennifer: To shakespeare.
Jj: To shakespeare.
Eve: Well, I can't leave salem now. I have too many irons in the fire.
Chad: The only iron you have fired up right now is jack deveraux.
Eve: You don't know anything about me and jack.
Chad: Well, I know that you told jennifer you came back to salem with revenge in your heart.
Eve: Mm, I get it. You want me to give up on jack so you can win some brownie points with his daughter. Am I right?
Sarah: I gotta tell you, I think we make a mean amatriciana sauce. Although I do think it needs more garlic still.
Eric: You don't give up points easy, do you?
Sarah: [Laughs] Rex used to say that I act like every hill is worth dying on.
Sarah: I should work on that, huh?
Eric: No, I think you should stay the same.
Eric: So do you serve the sauce in the pasta or them separately?
Sarah: I do it separately, but if that's not what you do--
Eric: No, no, no, let's do it your way. Hey, you gotta try some of this.
Sarah: Oh, my god. [Laughs] We have to get your shirt off, because if we don't soak it, it's gonna stain.
Eric: Oh, I'm so sorry. It's on your shirt too.
Sarah: No, I don't have any on mine.
Eric: It is now.
Brady: Oh, hey.
Chloe: I picked up holly from eric. Thank you, maggie, for watching parker. Could you get him ready for me?
Maggie: Sure. Did everything go all right?
Chloe: Yeah, actually, it went fine.
Brady: Where's holly?
Chloe: Uh, she fell asleep in the car, so I had henderson watch her.
Maggie: Oh, okay. Well, parker's with victor, and I'll go get him.
Chloe: Thank you.
Brady: So everything went well with eric?
Chloe: Yeah, actually, you're not gonna believe it, but eric's willing to let me have full custody.
Sarah: I'm glad chloe didn't show up now, see me wearing your shirt.
Eric: You know, I've been meaning to say, what she did by throwing that thing--what happened with rex in your face, I thought that was--it was rotten.
Sarah: Yeah, well, I'm not exactly proud of throwing the whole lucas thing back at her. I just think... I think she hit a nerve. I was really sure that I was gonna spend the rest of my life with your brother. I guess you don't really know.
Eric: You know what? For what it's worth, any man that treats you the way he did is an idiot or worse.
Sarah: You should tell rex that sometime.
Eric: Next time I see him, I promise.
Eric: Hey, you know, this pasta, it's really good. But it could've used some more garlic.
Melinda: I really hope you don't have a crush on jj. He has broken a lot of women's hearts, and your life is complicated enough.
Haley: We're just friends. He told me he came close to taking his own life last year.
Melinda: I didn't know that.
Haley: He was just reaching out, trying to figure out why I did it.
Melinda: You didn't tell him, did you?
Haley: Don't worry, mel. I know that's something I can't tell anybody.
Jack: So you're a musician?
Jj: I play the guitar.
Jennifer: Jack, he is so good.
Jj: I won't be quitting my day job anytime soon.
Abigail: Uh, you know, I-I have to... I have to go back to my kids. And you have to, you know, do your--check on your friend.
Jj: Yeah, yeah. She works at the hospital, and I usually stop by to see how she's doing.
Jack: Well, sure. Go. If you have to go, go.
Jj: Yeah, tonight was good. I hope we can talk again.
Abigail: If you guys ever do have that talk, you should... you should really take the time to ask him what he knows about eve and why he doesn't trust her.
Jack: Thank you. I'll--I'll think about what you said. And, uh, I know I'm in no position to give advice, but... maybe you should be careful of a man who tried to buy your attention.
Abigail: You know what? You're right. You're not in any position to give me advice. I'm an adult, and chad and i have been through a lot. And I know we have our...stuff, and yes, he does throw his money around like a dimera sometimes, but he has a good heart. For example, when we all thought you had died saving my life, he got me the galleys to your book so that I could read them before the rest of the world did. And he did that because he understood how important my father was to me then. And he understands how important my father is to me now.
Chad: You could have a fresh start in a beautiful new city with no bad memories.
Eve: Mm, a beautiful city in france.
Chad: Say au revoir to revenge and bonjour to a comfortable new life.
Think about it.
Jennifer: Well... I think this was good for our family. Thank you for being here. I mean, I know chad paid you to be here, but... I don't know. I feel like a part of you really enjoyed being with us. I know it meant a lot to our kids.
Jack: And what did it mean to you?
Melinda: I hate to add more stress to your life...
Haley: But you're gonna do it anyway, right?
Melinda: You need to move out of my place.
Haley: And go where on what I make?
Melinda: Look, I'll help out with your rent as much as I can. I don't want my sister on the street.
Haley: When do I have to go?
Melinda: As soon as possible. Tomorrow. I've made some plans, and unfortunately my plans make it necessary for me to put some space between us.
Haley: And what are these plans?
Melinda: I can't say just yet. But no one can know that you and I are related.
Jennifer: Hmm. Tonight... I think it really got to me, jack. Because I never imagined the four of us sitting around the same table together ever again.
Jack: Kind of got to me too. I wish I could remember, um... well, I wish I could remember everything.
Jennifer: But we made a sweet memory tonight. That's progress. You don't need to remember the past. It wasn't idyllic. I'm so glad there's things you don't remember. I-I wish I could forget.
Jack: Sounds kind of cryptic.
Jennifer: Well, what do you want to know? Ask me anything.
Jack: It seems that I was a lousy husband most of the time.
Jennifer: No. Just some of the time.
Jack: Thank you for that... I guess. So what were we like?
Jennifer: We were like "a sea nourished with loving tears... a madness most discreet..."
Both: "A choking gall, a preserving sweet."
Jack: [Sighs] There's a reason we both remember that speech, I guess.
Jennifer: It was... hard sometimes, and there was a lot of pain, jack. But I really believe, in spite of that, we built the most wonderful life together.
Chad: Spent a huge chunk of your money... trying to get rid of eve donovan tonight. Here's to hoping that it... worked and that abby had a wonderful night with her family.
Brady: Are you sure that eric was serious about this?
Chloe: Yeah, I'm sure.
Brady: Then...that's great. I mean, I'm--I'm happy for you. I'm happy for holly. That's terrific.
Chloe: Thank you. And thank you for having faith in me and always backing me up.
Brady: No. This has been a rotten time for me, chloe. I honestly, um... I don't know if I would've gotten through it without your support.
Chloe: I guess no matter what happens, it always seems like you and I can count on each other.
Brady: May that always be the case.
Both: Well, it'S...
Chloe: It's late.
Brady: Yeah, it's late.
Chloe: I gotta get the kids home.
Sarah: Let me help you with the dishes.
Eric: No, you sit. I'll get the dishes. Thanks again for staying for dinner... making me laugh. You know, finding nicole and losing her again... your friendship really kind of kept me going.
Sarah: My life fell apart in front of a room full of people, and you kept me going. You know, um, you told me once that, uh, being with me was easy, and... I-I feel the same way about you.
[Knock at door]
Eric: Um, uh... I wonder who it could be at this hour. I wasn't expecting anybody.
