Eric: Thank you for staying for dinner. You know, making me laugh. Just finding nicole and losing her again... your friendship, it guided-- guided me through it.

Sarah: My--my whole life fell apart in front of a room full of people, and... you got me through it.

[Stammers, sighs] You know, you, um... you told me once that I was easy to be with, and... I feel the same way about you.

[Tender music]

[Knocking on door]

Eric: Wonder who that could be? I'm not expecting anybody. Rex, I-- what are you doing here?

Rex: Is that any way to greet your favorite brother? Come on, man, bring it in. Give me a hug. How you been?

[Tense music]


Sarah: Hello, rex.

Melinda: I hate to add more stress to your life.

Haley: But you're gonna do it anyway, right?

Melinda: You're gonna have to move out of my place.

Haley: And go where on what I make?

Melinda: I'll help out with your rent as much as I can.

Haley: [Scoffs]

Melinda: I--I don't want my sister on the street.

Haley: When do I have to go?

Melinda: As soon as possible. Tomorrow. I made some plans, and unfortunately the 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.

[Approaching footsteps] Haley: Jj. What are you doing here?

Jj: [Stammers] I-- I, uh, came back to find you. Disappeared on me in the middle of our conversation. I was--I was worried.

Haley: You don't have to worry about me. I'm fine.

Jj: No, you're not. Heard you on that call before, remember? You seemed pretty upset, just like you do now. But I know who you were talking to.

[Tense music]

Chad: 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? There was a time when I could be bought. Not anymore.

[Suspenseful music]

Chad: Spent a huge chunk of your money trying to get rid of eve donovan tonight. Here's to hoping that it...

[Sighs] Worked. And that abby had a wonderful night with her family.

[Door opens]

Jack: What were we like?

Jennifer: "A sea... nourished with loving tears. A madness most discreet...

Both: A choking gall... preserving sweet."

Jack: It's no wonder we both remember that speech.

Jennifer: Jack, there was so much pain and-- and so much heartache. But in spite of that, I really believe that we built a wonderful life together. And I believe that we can do that again.

[Tender music sours]

Jack: No. No, I don't believe we can.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Kayla: Steve, it's me. I'm just--I'm just calling to celebrate. Well, I'm sure you have already heard, but they've indicted stefan for treason. I cannot begin to tell you how happy it makes me just the thought of him rotting in a federal prison. I just hope it means that the fbi is wrapping up their case, and you can come home now. It's been too long, my love. I know that you-- you want to see jack, too. I--I don't know what else--

Eve: I don't know if that's gonna happen. Jack's missing.

Jennifer: Why would you say that? Why would you even think that we couldn't build a life together again, jack?

Jack: What is that saying?

[Stammers] About two-- two people who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it. We have been divorced twice. I'm guessing there's a reason for that. Stop trying so hard, jennifer, please. Please. You're trying so hard. Admit it: I'm not the family man that you made me out to be.

Jennifer: I don't know what what you're thinking, jack, but there is no deep, dark secret that I am keeping from you. Yes. We had our share of big problems, but that does not change the fact that you are a loving father and a very devoted husband.

Jack: And a rapist.

Chad: I'm sorry. It was a crazy plan. I wasn't even gonna, uh-- I wasn't even sure you were gonna go.

Abigail: Well, I almost didn'T. Why didn't just be honest with me and tell me that you were planning a dinner with my family? I mean, that would have saved me so much anxiety knowing that you weren't gonna be there.

Chad: I wasn't sure your father was even gonna go. And--and if he didn't and I--

Abigail: I--I know. He told me that you had to pay him off.

Chad: He wasn't supposed to tell you that part.

Abigail: Of course not.

Chad: [Laughs]

Abigail: Is it so hard for you to just be honest with me? I'll start. I--I will start. I did not want to see you tonight. Julie guilted me into it. I was sure that there was nothing you could say or do to move me. But in the interest of honesty, I... will admit that... you did... move me. I see that you were trying to do something really special for me, and--and to provide some healing for my family. And that means a lot to me. So... thank you.

[Mellow music]

Rex: Maybe I should have called first. Am I interrupting something?

(Mom) is that for me?

Eric: No, no, no. Of course you're not interrupting.

Rex: Um, sorry. I didn't--I didn't expect to see you here.

Sarah: Why are you here, rex? Shouldn't you be back in chicago with mimi and your baby girl? I figured you'd all be a happy family by now.

Rex: No, no, I--I did convince mimi to move to chicago so she could be nearby, but there's--there's nothing romantic between us at all, 'cause she's not the woman that I want. The woman that I want is-- is you, sarah.

Melinda: Well, mr. Deveraux, seems like you're a serial eavesdropper.

Jj: I found haley lying on the floor of the on-call room after she od'D. She almost died right in front of me. She probably would have if I hadn't been there. I'd like to keep her alive, ms. Trask. Maybe you--you don't care--

Melinda: Of course I care.

Jj: 'Cause you're related? That is what you said just now, isn't it?

Haley: Jj--jj, please. Just stay out of this.

Jj: It's--it's too late. So what's the deal? Are--are you her mother?

Melinda: Excuse me. Do I look old enough to be her mother?

Jj: Then how are you related?

Melinda: Simple. Haley is my fellow chinese-american. Our community is rather small here in salem, so... we have to stick together. Like family.

Jj: Except it didn't sound like you were sticking together. It sounded more like you're tossing haley out of your life, so why don't you give me an honest answer? Why don't you want people to know you're related? What are you hiding?

[Tense music]

Kayla: Call me when you get this, all right, steve? I love you. What do you mean, "jack is missing"?

Eve: I don't know, kayla. We had plans tonight, I got back to the hotel, and he was gone.

Kayla: You ever think that maybe he was just trying to get away from you?

Eve: You know, all this hostility is really uncalled for. In case you've forgotten, I'm the one that reunited jack with his family.

Kayla: Oh, yeah, I'm aware. But I also know that the real reason that you did it was so that you could rub this so-called "relationship" with him in all of our faces.

Eve: You think I would go to all that trouble--

Kayla: Oh, come on, you don't need to deny it. We both know that you despise jennifer. And the temptation to actually cause her pain was just too good to pass up. And adrienne and steve, well, you don't really care about them. You claim that you care about jack--

Eve: I do care about jack.

Kayla: Well, then think about what he's going through.

Eve: What? You're painting him as a victim, here. I mean, really? After what he did to you? He raped you, kayla.

Kayla: Thanks for the reminder.

Eve: Being mighty forgiving. What, are you bucking for sainthood? Hmm? I mean, if I were you I'd be really worried if my attacker were roaming the streets of salem.

Kayla: And yet, you are perfectly happy to share a room with him.

Eve: I'm not worried about jack attacking me. We have an understanding. We're cut from the same cloth.

Kayla: Jack never loved you, and we both know it. Jennifer is his true love, and that's why they are going to find their way back to each other.

Eve: Oh, you're so sure about that, aren't you?

Kayla: Yeah, I am, actually, because they always do. And when that happens, you're gonna be out in the cold, again. So why don't you do yourself a favor and leave town... so you don't have to experience that pain?

Eve: "That pain." Really? You're not worried about me getting hurt. You just want me out of this town just like everybody else does. Well, I got news for you: Chad is running dimera enterprises again, and he just offered me a very sweet deal. In paris. But too bad for you. I am gonna turn him down flat, because I'm not leaving this town until I get exactly what I came here for.

Jack: How could you ever fall in love with someone like me? Maybe it was just pity after all. Maybe it wasn't love. Is that why it didn't stick?

Jennifer: No, of course not.

Jack: But I kept hurting you and hurting you, and running away and running away time and time again. Now, yes, of course, in time maybe you and I would find our way back together, but history would just repeat itself.

Jennifer: No, but jack--

Jack: I shouldn't be with someone like you. Someone who only sees the good in other people. Who's selfless and kind. The only reason I'm here tonight, after all, is because of the money. I should be with someone more like--more like me. Someone more like eve, and not like you.

Chad: Look, since we're being, uh, since we're being honest with one another I should probably tell you that I offered eve donovan a job tonight. In paris.

Abigail: Did she take it?

Jack: She's thinking about it. I know money can't fix all of our problems, I just-- I just figured if she does accept... then your parents may have a stronger chance of being able to work things out.

Abigail: I hope they do.

[Laughs softly]

Chad: How was it tonight? With your family.

Abigail: It was, uh, it was pretty good, actually. Um, yeah, it was... it was nice. I mean, of course, uh, you were right. My dad did not want to be there at first, but after a while he warmed up and-- you know, there was a moment where it really felt like it was back to the old days-- just the four of us again-- and that was... special.

Abigail: Except I knew that it wasn't going to last. Which is exactly how it is in our little family.

Rex: Sarah, I made a terrible mistake, and I have spent the past few months in chicago just riddled with--with guilt and--and regret-- not just because of what I did but because... I didn't try hard enough to make things right. I gave up on us way too easily, and that's why I came back. To fight for you.

Sarah: What about your daughter? You just abandoning her?

Rex: What? No. God, no. No, like I said, they're--they're in chicago, they're nearby. I can get there any time. I made a commitment to raising my little girl but, sarah, I also made a commitment to you.

Sarah: [Scoffs] Well, that commitment wasn't honored, rex. In fact, you made a mockery of it, so why even bring it up? Because it's meaningless to me now.

Rex: No, it's--it's not to me. And sarah, I would not be able to live with myself if I didn't do everything in my power to prove to you that I will never jeopardize the most important thing in my life, and that's you. And that's us. This--this past new year's eve all I could do was-- was think about you, because that's the night that you and I were supposed to be married.

Eric: You know, why don't i let you two talk?

Sarah: No. Stay. Please. And fyi, I didn't give you a single thought on new year's eve.

Rex: Look, I know that this is not gonna be easy, okay? I know it's gonna take a lot of work. I know how angry you were when you found about mimi and me, and how angry you still are. And you know what? You have every right to be. Sarah, you and I were in love. Our feelings for each other were so strong, and you know what? I don't think you're over 'em yet. In fact, I know you're not.

Sarah: You're right. I'm not.

Melinda: Mr. Deveraux, I suggest you avoid cross-examining the D.A. You're not likely to win.

Haley: Please, jj. Just forget you saw us together.

Well, I'm--I'm not-- not gonna forget. She's obviously upsetting you. Why don't we get out of here? Let me take you for a-- for a cup of coffee.

Haley: Please, jj. Just go.

Jj: Fine. But if you want to talk, you know where to find me.

[Uneasy music]

Kayla: You think it isn't obvious why you came back to salem? It isn't about wanting jack. It's about revenge. But is that really gonna fill the hole inside of you? That loneliness that eats away at your soul.

Eve: You know, kayla, maybe you should worry about your own soul. See, I'm not the one that's going home to a cold, empty bed every night.

Kayla: I can't imagine what it must have been like when you lost paige. I mean, she was just such a wonderful young woman. Really, one of the most promising students I ever had the opportunity to mentor. How do you think she would feel if she saw what you were up to?

Eve: Don't you dare.

Kayla: I know your daughter loved you, and I'm sure you want to live a life that honors her. But salem just holds all these painful memories. Do you really want to subject yourself to that kind of pain? It happens every time you come back. Why don't you try to break the cycle? And take a chance on a fresh start.

Jennifer: You are nothing like eve. I--I know that you have things in your past that you regret, jack. So do I. But you know what, did kayla tell you? Did she tell you that you had an abusive father? And that--that you were given up for adoption and you ended up with senator harper deveraux, who was so violent and so disturbed. Jack... you were traumatized.

Jack: "Traumatized"?

[Stammering] This is not an excuse to abuse another person...

Jennifer: No, you're right...

Jack: Violate another person!

Jennifer: You're right. It's not an excuse. It's a reason. And maybe you can look at that reason and-- and try to forgive yourself. I know it helped me to forgive you, jack. And look--look, every time I had struggles, I had this wonderful family to support me. They loved me no matter what. You had no one. You had to fight all of these demons on your own. You had to do it by yourself, but you know what, jack? You did it. You fought so hard. You went to therapy, you-- you paid your dues to society. And... years later... when I was raped... you were the one who helped me through it, because I never thought I could ever love or trust another man again. But you loved me and you supported me, and that is what got me through it. But you didn't even believe it, jack. You didn't give yourself credit for anything because you never-- you never felt worthy. You blamed yourself for everything that went wrong, even our daughter. When abigail got sick you blamed yourself, but really you're the one who got us through it, because you have this gigantic heart. And you have this... generous spirit... and this crazy... wicked sense of humor.

Jack: [Sighs]

Jennifer: But because of your childhood... every time someone gets close to you, you want to run away. And I am not going to let you do that now, or ever again.

Chad: We could be a family again.

Abigail: Chad, I--

Chad: Let me. Can I... say something? I know you didn't want to see me tonight. Makes sense. But you came to the restaurant. You came here. I know you're angry. You have every right to be. Despite everything that has happened, I can't deny my feelings for you. I can't deny how badly I want to hold you. Can't deny how badly I want to kiss you.

[Romantic music]

Abigail: [Moans] No, I can'T.

[Stammers] We can't do--this is why I didn't want to be near you. This is--I can'T.

[Sighs] These feelings, and this-- this just pulls me back to you every single time, and I am not ready. I am not ready to be vulnerable with you. We have to-- we have to rebuild our trust.

Chad: [Stammers] I'm do--I-- I'm willing to work on that.

Abigail: I know you are. I'm--I don't know if I am. It goes both ways. I have to be ready, too, and I--I broke your trust when I slept with stefan.

Chad: I don't blame--I don't blame you for that.

Abigail: Yes, you do.

Chad: No, I don'T.

Abigail: Come on, yes you do. Of course you do. A part of you does, at least. Otherwise you would have been able to accept charlotte for exactly what she was, which was a beautiful miracle no matter who her father was. But instead, every single time that you saw me when I was pregnant, you were reminded about the night that I betrayed you. You didn't even think that you could love charlotte, and that is the one thing I don't know if I can get past.

Kayla: As long as you're in salem, you are always gonna be reminded of paige's death, and it's just so much harder to move past the pain. Especially now that ben weston's in town. Would I be happy if you left town for jennifer's sake? Of course I would. But for yours, too.

Eve: Jj. I've been looking everywhere for your father. Have you seen him?

Jj: Yeah, actually, I-- I did. He's with my mom. Alone.

Eve: What? Where?

Jj: That's none of your business.

Eve: Well--you know what? Fine. I'll find him myself.

Jj: Eve, don't--

[Overlapping speech]

Kayla: Let her go.

[Edgy music]

Jennifer: You're a journalist, jack. A terrific journalist. You taught me to be a champion of truth. And your children? You are the most loving father. They adore you. They think you hung the moon. And me? I married you because I loved you with all of my heart. I still do. And I don't care what else you have forgotten. I know deep down inside you have never--you couldn't forget our love, jack. So I am begging you to-- to forget all of this. Forget the noise, forget the lies that eve is whispering in your ears and just look at me. Listen to me. Listen to your heart, jack.

[Emotional music]


Sarah: I do have strong feelings for you. Very strong feelings. Of wanting to strangle you.

Rex: Sarah--

Sarah: No, we are done talking--just get out!

Rex: [Sighs] Can't throw me out. It's not your place.

Sarah: Eric.

Eric: How'd you know where to find me?

Rex: Went to see dad. There aren't any vacancies at the pub, so he gave me your new address. I'm sorry I was just dropping in like this, man, but I was hoping crash here for a while.

Sarah: No way. You--you are not gonna let some lying, cheating jerk stay here, are you?

Eric: He's my brother.

Sarah: You are wasting your time coming back here. I forgave you once and it was a huge mistake. I am not gonna do it again. Thank you for dinner. Oh, and the shirt. Because as long as he's staying here, I am not bringing it back.

[Dramatic music]

Jj: Do you think eve will find my parents?

Kayla: Well, it's possible. I mean, they're in a public place.

Jj: I never should have said they were together. I just was happy to have something to throw in her face.

Kayla: I know. I know that. Listen, if it makes you feel any better, I--I don't think she's gonna ruin it for them.

Jj: Are you kidding me?

Kayla: No. You know, eve and I had a heart-to-heart, and I think maybe I got through to her. I think she understands what's best for everybody, including her... and that would be to bow out gracefully.

[Romantic music]

Jennifer: I love you so much. Having you back is the most precious gift, jack. I have longed to-- to touch you. And to just hold you and to kiss you.

Abigail: [Sighs]

Chad: I was wrong to walk out on you when you needed me the most. I know that. And I know that I have to prove my love again.

Abigail: Melinda came to see me. She was desperate for a prosecution and she threatened to go after you for taking me to smith island.

Chad: She's gonna charge me for kidnapping you.

Abigail: Well, she's gonna have a pretty difficult time with it, since I'm not gonna cooperate as her witness.

Chad: Why?

Abigail: Because no matter what's happened between us, you are the father of my children, chad, and I know that... I know that you did what you did because... because you love me.

Melinda: Just what I need-- for the son of this town's most intrepid reporter to make you his personal charity case.

Haley: That's not what's going on.

Melinda: No? Then what is it? Please, enlighten me. You knew how important it was for me to be discreet. I have stuck my neck out for you covering for your mistakes. But I can't do that anymore or you and I are both gonna suffer the consequences. Do you understand that?

Haley: I do, but I--

Melinda: No, jj knows too much. You have to fix it, or I will.

Jj: You know what, kayla, I'm gonna--I think I'm gonna get going. I have an early shift.

Kayla: Okay.

Jj: Good night.

Kayla: Good night. But listen, jj, you know, I just wanted to ask you something.

Jj: Okay.

Kayla: Do you know anything about haley? What's going on?

Jj: It's hard to say. I've--I've tried to talk to her about it. Um, she doesn't seem to want to open up. I mean, I don't want to cost anybody their job, but nursing is a very stressful job, as you know.

Jj: No, no, you--I don't think you have to worry about that. I don't think it's--it's her job that's the issue.

Kayla: What do you think the issue is?

Jj: I'm not--not sure. Um... you wouldn't happen to know anything about her family situation?

Kayla: No. Why?

Jj: I was just-- I was wondering if maybe, uh, she's having family problems-- like a lot of other people I know.

Eve: Well. There you are.


Jennifer: What are you doing here?

Eve: I was looking for jack, and I was fortunate enough to run into jj, where he told me the two of you were here together.

Jack: [Sighs]

Eve: You know, it's one thing for you to try to reunite with your family, but to stand me up for dinner, jack? Not so cool.


Jack: I'm sorry.

Eve: No, I--I totally get that, you know? I mean, it's kind of your thing, right? You know, your disappearing act that you always do? It makes you--it's one of your quirks, anyway. And I know it used to drive you crazy, right? That's one of the reasons you broke up again, and again, and again.

Jack: It's true, isn't it?

Eve: But you know, it's a good thing that i completely understand jack, 'cause I'm kind of like that, too. Kind of a free spirit coming and going all the time. It's why we get along so well, right? Speaking of getting along, how about we get on home? Shall we?

Jack: It, uh--it does seem to be time, yes.

Eve: I see that you've already had your dinner. But you haven't finished your desserts. How about we share our own dessert later?

Jennifer: Jack, no. No, no. We were just getting somewhere. Please don't go with her. Come home with me, please.

[Tense music]

Chad: You said you understand.

Abigail: I understand that you were desperate to get me the help that you thought I needed. But... taking my child away from me, locking me up?

Chad: I have made some terrible mistakes. I'm grateful you're well. You're home. I'm grateful charlotte's ours. Just a few weeks ago, we had everything standing between us. Now it's only you. I know we have our things that we need to work through. Are you willing to try? Are you open to it?

Abigail: I know that you love me. And I love you.

Chad: But?

Abigail: I'm not ready. Not now--I'm not--and... I'm just not. But I--I hope that maybe someday... I will be. As someone in witness protection,

Rex: So, should I start looking for another place to crash, or...?

Eric: [Sighs]

Rex: I know you and sarah are obviously friends. I don't want to put you in a awkward position.

Eric: No, no, no. Of course you can stay here.

Rex: You know, I was really hoping you'd say that. It's really good, because I need your help.

Eric: Sure, with what?

Rex: Getting sarah back.

[Dramatic music]

Kayla: Sarah.

[Laughs] You okay?

Sarah: Yeah, I will be.

Kayla: What happened?

Sarah: Your arrogant, entitled, womanizing jerk of a nephew came back into town. Says he wants to win me back.

Kayla: I'm guessing that that's not what you want.

Sarah: It's the last thing that I want. But he doesn't care. He--it's all about what he wants and what he needs, and he-- and nothing else seems to matter. It's why we're not together anymore.

Kayla: Sarah, I know that he hurt you. But the two of you were engaged not that long ago. Maybe you're not over him yet.

Sarah: Of course I am. Completely.

[Melancholy music]

[Door slams]

[Knocking on door]

Jj: One sec. Haley. Hi.

Haley: Sorry to bother you. I, uh--I have nowhere else to go.

Jj: Oh, come on in.

[Suspenseful music]

Jack: You wanted me to come to dinner. I came to dinner. We had fun. But ultimately... I was only here for the money.

Eve: Money?

Jack: I'll explain it to you when we get home. Good night.

[Door closes]

Chad: You wanna have some coffee with me? Talk a little.

Abigail: I can'T. I have to get back to the kids.

Chad: Okay. Kiss them good night for me.

Abigail: I will. I'll see you soon.

Chad: Yeah.

Abigail: Uh, thank you for tonight. It... really, it mean a lot to me.

Chad: Of course.
