Stefan: Don't stop what you're doing. Keep working.
Chloe: Oh, I'm not working. I'm doing some research.
Stefan: On what, your, uh-- your club?
Coe: No, on how to kick your butt in this game.
Stefan: Well, that is incredibly audacious of you, miss lane, 'cause you just relearned this game, and you think you can beat me, a genius chess player?
Chloe: Yes, I do.
Stefan: Bring it on.
Diana: So, do we have a deal, or not?
[Haunting pipe and drum music]
Victor: Fine. We have a deal.
Brady: How's the peeping, tom?
Marlena: Dear god. Are you actually defending leo? Why?
Diana: The answer is yes. Leo is your son.
John: I have a pretty good reason.
Rex: Sarah horton, will you marry me?
Sarah: Uh... I-I-I-I don't know what to say.
Rex: It's simple. You just say yes.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Brady: [Sighs] I'm glad you're home.
Sonny: Thank you. Yeah, uh, my dad got us out on bail. Um, he doesn't like our chances against leo, says we need to do some serious work on the defense.
Brady: So what are you doing, hanging around, eavesdropping on uncle vic, for?
Sonny: I wasn't hanging around. I just happened to walk by, and I saw uncle vic talking to leo's mother, diana colville.
Brady: Did you hear what they were saying?
Sonny: No, but whatever it is, looks like some sort of deal. They shook on it.
Diana: I can't believe I am sitting here, making a deal with the almighty and powerful victor kiriakis.
Victor: [Chuckles] And i can't believe I'm pimping out my ex-son-in-law to save my nephew, yet here we are.
Diana: [Sighs] I know there are no guarantees, victor, but I expect you to do your best to deliver. You owe me.
Marlena: What possible reason do you have for d-defending leo, especially after he blackmailed sonny into marrying him?
Leo: Only after these lovesick clowns tried to kill me!
John: So leo--does he know?
Diana: He has no idea. He's always believed that richard cooper was his father, and I want it to stay that way.
John: I am not trying to defend leo. Here I am, simply trying to take everything down a notch.
Marlena: By sending will home after leo's threatened him?
Leo: Uh, excuse me, dr. Evans. I believe it was you who's threatening me, after your grandson clocked me.
Will: Plenty more where that came from.
John: Not helping here.
Marlena: Stop blaming will. He's done nothing wrong.
Leo: Whatever you say, super-grandma.
Will: Shut up.
John: You see what I mean, doc? I'm trying to break this up before it escalates here. Please, back-- back me up on this. Guys, don't you move, either one of you. Doc... sweetheart, will needs to walk away from this for his own good.
Marlena: I will not let that slime hurt our family, walk all over everybody we love.
John: I hear that, but right now, leo has got will and sonny on the ropes here. If we antagonize him, they can go away for attempted murder.
Marlena: Those charges are baseless.
John: That doesn't even matter. If this goes to trial, leo can use this little run-in here to his advantage. Is that what you want for will?
Marlena: Of course not.
Will: You're lucky john showed up when he did.
Leo: Your grandma's silver fox of a husband is my knight in shining armor.
Thank you for sticking up for me. You're not so bad after all.
Sarah: Wow. This is, uh... unexpected.
Rex: I didn't--I didn't mean to catch you off-guard, or-- or for this to be so public, actually. Is it--is it-- is it too much? It's too much, isn't it? Sorry. [Laughs]
Sarah: I'm--I'm just--just--
Rex: Y-y-you're surprised, and that's cool, 'cause it's-- it's a--it's a marriage proposal, and the I've-- I popped the question before.
[Sighs] Sarah, I love you, and I simply can't wait to start building a life with you, so make me the happiest man on the face of this planet and let me put this ring back on your finger.
Sarah: I'm--I'm sorry, rex. My answer is no.
(Ariana) what is he doing?
Stefan: I-I have to say, um, I'm rather im--impressed. That download--uh... "chess for dummies" or whatever it was--is paying off for you.
Chloe: Yeah, it is.
[Vitreous shattering sound] Oh, my god. What was that?
Stefan: Yeah, I-- I heard it too. Stay here.
Chloe: Okay, please be careful.
Gabi: Let go of me, you jerk!
Chloe: Oh, gabi was the noise?
Stefan: Yeah, she broke a-- a vase, a rather expensive one that she will be paying for.
Gabi: Oh yeah? Get your hands off me, you jerk.
Stefan: How did you get in here? And don't tell me you-- you--you charmed the security again.
Gabi: Oh, I just told them that I was here on dimera business.
Stefan: Well, that's, uh-- that's funny, because you don't work for dimera anymore. I fired your ass, remember?
Chloe: Okay, I think I'm gonna go check on the kids. Are you gonna be okay?
Stefan: Yeah, I'll be just fine. I just need to escort my ex-employee out the door.
Get out. You have no business here, dimera or otherwise.
Gabi: Oh, well, actually--
Stefan: Come on. Come on!
Gabi: Oh, you should probably get that. It might be important.
John: Will, I'm sorry if it, um--if it seemed like I was sticking up for leo.
Will: You were.
Marlena: Well, john was just trying to keep things from getting out of hand.
Will: Oh, I think we're way past that. Leo was trying to send sonny and me to prison for something that--that we didn't do, and instead of defending that creep, I-I-I thought you would--you would be loyal to your family, john.
John: Oh, yeah, well, there's things that you don't understand.
Will: Oh, I-I-I--no, trust me, I-I get it. What--what's going on with sonny and me looks bad, but we are not the enemy. Okay? Leo is. He came after us. Grandma, thank you for-- for--for standing by me. At least I know whose side you're on.
John: Oh, hey, will...
Now that didn't go well, did it?
Marlena: No. No, it didn'T.
Rex: You're--[Scoffs] Turning me down? Why?
Sarah: Rex, I am in the middle of my shift. Can we just--can we talk about this later, at home?
Rex: Oh, okay, yeah, I-- I understand, but you just...
[Laughs] Declined my marriage proposal. I-I'd like a reason why.
Eric: I'm gonna leave you two alone.
Sarah: Come with me. What you just did was very sweet, and... romantic, but rex, did it have to be so public, and with eric standing right there?
Rex: I got--I got carried away. I didn't even realize that eric was standing there, I swear. Look, sarah, I was excited, overly excited, and yes, I should've waited till we were alone. I'm--I'm sorry.
Sarah: Yeah. I mean, that would've been a better idea.
Rex: Is that why you said no?
Sarah: No, of course not.
Rex: Then why did you say no?
Sarah: It'S... complicated.
Rex: Sarah, what--are you seri--that's not an answer. I thought this is what you wanted.
Sarah: It is what I wanted.
Rex: Th-then what are you waiting for? Just one reason. That's all I want. Give me one reason why you don't want to move forward with me today.
Rex: You don't want to marry me because of eric? What does he have to do with this?
Sarah: He-he just lost nicole. He's still in mourning.
Rex: Okay, I'm really trying to figure out how he factors into your decision.
Sarah: He's your brother, and he's in real pain. I-- he is trying every single day to put the pieces of his life back together, and we are rubbing our reunion in his face.
Rex: I think that we are being pretty discreet.
Sarah: Seriously? 'Cause you just proposed to me in front of him, and not to mention every time he turns around, we're either coming out of the bedroom or going into it. It's, like, nonstop.
Rex: I-I think you're exaggerating just a little bit. Besides, I have spoken to eric about this. I've asked, "are you uncomfortable with sarah and me in your apartment?" He's like, "no, I'm fine with it."
Sarah: He's being polite.
Rex: He's an adult, sarah. He knows that we're in love.
Sarah: Even still, can you imagine how hard this must be for him, with us flaunting our happiness in front of him when his happiness, his hopes and dreams, were just destroyed? Did you even think about that before you pulled out a diamond ring in front of him?
Rex: I'm not buying any of this, because it doesn't make any sense.
Sarah: What doesn't make sense?
Rex: D-d--a few days ago, you weren't even speaking to eric, and what? Now you're all concerned about his feelings?
Sarah: I am trying to be sensitive.
Rex: I think... it's more than that. This is more than you just looking out for my brother, your friend. There is something you're not telling me. What is it?
Eric: Will? Hey, man. Mom said that you and sonny got out on bail, man. That's great news.
Eric: I mean, you still have to deal with the whole charges and all, but at least that sham of a marriage between leo and sonny is over, right?
Will: Ah, honestly, I don't-- I don't know where that stands.
Eric: You know sonny loves you.
Will: Yes. I-I love him, but until this is all settled, I can't--we can't-- we can't see each other, talk to each other--nothing.
Eric: W-why? I mean, who said that?
Will: Well, justin. He's our lawyer, and he-- and so he says we can't do anything that might make leo go off. That also means I gotta avoid him.
Eric: That's probably best.
Will: I know, but I just want to break his face so much, and I know that--that it was a mistake, but my--my f-- it just felt so good to have my fist connect with his jaw. You know?
Eric: Yeah, well, I've had my fair share of punches due to frustration and anger, but, you know, justin's right. You don't want to make things worse by getting into it with leo.
Will: Well, I'm not the one you need to worry about. That would be your mother.
Marlena: Ugh! I'm so sorry that I put my hands on leo.
[Laughs] I was trying to maintain my cool, and then he threatened my grandson, and I just lost it.
John: Doc, what leo is-- is pulling on will and sonny is reprehensible, but come on. They never should've rolled him up in a carpet and left him for dead.
Marlena: You already said that.
John: I know, but come on, doc. It's just not smart.
Marlena: Well, it was impulsive, a-a-a-and they regret that, and--and they're paying for it now.
John: Yes, they are. That doesn't mean that you need to get in on the action here, because the last thing we need is for you to brought up on assault charges on top of everything else. Sweetheart, come on. By the grace of god, I just got you back. I don't want to take any more chances.
Marlena: I know. I appreciate that.
Marlena: Uh, I just don't understand why you were being so civil to leo.
John: I told you, if we keep pushing the guy's buttons...
Marlena: Then we give him more ammunition to use against will and sonny. Yeah, no, no, I get that, but you're--you're not just asking us to back off of leo. You were openly defending him. This is a man who poses a serious threat to our family. I--I don't know. I--I-- it just makes me wonder...
John: Makes you wonder what?
Marlena: What it is that i don't know.
Victor: I don't owe you a damn thing.
Diana: You stole my fortune.
Victor: And you stole it back.
Diana: And you put me through hell all along the way.
Victor: Look, much as I enjoy going down memory lane with you, I suggest that we concentrate on the present.
Diana: Ah, be in the moment. How very zen of you, victor.
Victor: Yes, well, getting john to leave marlena's gonna be like getting the earth to stop spinning. So instead of squabbling about the past, I suggest you let me think. We need a big idea.
Diana: Good thing I have one.
Sonny: Diana may look tame, but she is a shark. There's no telling what she and uncle vic just agreed on.
Brady: Well, we could stand here speculating all day, or we could just ask him.
Sonny: Right, right, because uncle vic is always so forthcoming.
Brady: Well, you-- here's the good news. When I agreed to come back as ceo of titan, I told him it would have to be on my terms, meaning that there would be no more games. There'll be no more controlling things behind the scenes, or I was out. So we can try confronting him. Maybe he'll play straight.
Victor: Is that all true?
Diana: And now that I've loaded the gun... it's up to you to pull the trigger.
Marlena: Victor? This is a surprise.
Victor: I hope it's not a bad time. I, uh--I need to see you right away.
Marlena: Really? It--it sounds urgent.
Victor: It is. It's about will and sonny.
Marlena: Okay. I'll be there soon as I can.
Sonny: Uncle vic, we need to talk.
Marlena: Victor wants to see me.
John: Yeah? Why's that?
Marlena: Well, uh, something about sonny and will. It's urgent.
John: Ah, look, yeah, sit down. Bef-- before you go, I need to be totally honest with you. The reason that I didn't come down on leo so hard a minute ago was because of something diana told me.
Marlena: About what?
John: About his father.
Seresto, seresto, seresto.
Rex: I know what it is. I know what you've been keeping from me. When I came into the hospital, I saw you and eric huddled, deep in conversation, and you told him, didn't you? About your trust issues.
[Tender harp music]
Sarah: Yeah, but--
Rex: No, no, no. It--you don't have to explain. I mean, we talked about it this morning, and I understand why it's still on your mind.
Sarah: Rex, I--
Rex: But I also... I also want to tell you that i went and saw my dad this morning at the pub, and I told him that I understand why you still have doubts about me, and I needed to find a way to put those doubts to bed once and for all. I have told you, sarah, that I will never be unfaithful to you again, but those are just words. I--I needed to do something to prove it. That's why I came here to do this today: To prove to you that you're the woman that i want to spend the rest of my life with. I almost lost you once. I am not gonna make that mistake again. You have my word. You have my heart. Will you have me as your husband?
Will: I love that grandma's in my corner. Uh, eric, she was--she was angry. I don't know what she would've done if john hadn't shown up.
Eric: I'm assuming that john forced leo to leave.
Will: No, actually, john asked me to leave, which really--w-w-w--grandma and i were pissed, because how are you gonna defend that scum over us?
Eric: Yeah, john just stayed neutral, tried to defuse the tension. You know? I understand how that works.
Will: Family stuff?
Eric: Yeah, rex has been trying to make things work between him and sarah. You know? Unfortunately, I've been kind of right in the middle of it.
Will: And you can't, like, just stay out of it?
Eric: Well, rex is my brother, and sarah's my friend. It's kind of hard to disengage. But between you and me, I don't think there's really a shot.
Will: Really? How come?
Eric: Well, rex--he showed up at the hospital, proposed to sarah right there in front of me. I just don't think she's ready.
Will: Ouch. She said no?
Eric: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I just--you know.
Eric: Well, you know, I mean, he's been trying really hard to make things work. I just-- I feel really bad for him. You know, he was really trying to make things work between the two of them, win--and win her back.
Will: Yeah. Oh, man, poor uncle rex, but i think maybe, you know, somewhere deep down, sarah knows that he's not the right guy for her.
Stefan: Yes, mr. Shin. Do you understand, sir, that i have complete autonomy over dimera's day-to-day operations? No. No, my decision was not motivated due to personal feelings.
[Laughs] Yes, yes, I understand. Okay. Okay.
Why, you little...
Gabi: Did I do something?
Stefan: You went behind my back so you could get to shin.
Gabi: I told you not to dismiss gabi chic.
Stefan: How did--how did you do it? Did you threaten to send him off to the nuthouse? Because he must be insane, if he thinks you or your company is worth a damn. You know, I-I should have known that you'd pull something like this, because you are nothing but a scheming bitch.
Gabi: Oh! I am not afraid of you, stefan.
Stefan: You should be.
Sarah: The effort that you are making means so much to me-- your honesty and your sincerity-- but my answer is still no, and I know--I know that that is not what you want to hear. This--this is all just happening so fast, and I need time to process all of it before I can move forward. I hope you can understand that.
Rex: Yeah. [Laughs] Yes, of course I can understand that. You take all the time that you need, okay? And when you are ready, I'll be here.
I'll see you.
[Synth and guitar music]
Diana: Ah, well, darling leo. Do come in.
Leo: What the hell is going on between you and victor kiriakis?
Diana: [Laughs] I'm sure i don't know what you mean.
Leo: Save it. You went to that house to see him. Why?
Diana: Oh, and that is none of your concern.
Leo: Start talking, or else.
Victor: First things first. I'm glad to see that you're out on bail.
Sonny: Thank you. Yeah, i have no intention of going to prison.
Brady: Which is why we have to make sure these charges against will and sonny are dropped asap.
Victor: Well, I'm sure that justin can make that happen.
Sonny: And what can you do, uncle vic?
Victor: I don't get what you mean.
Brady: Granddad, come on. Sonny saw you talking to leo's mother. Apparently, it looked like you struck some kind of a deal with her.
Sonny: So the question is, what is it?
Victor: Well, that's between me and diana.
Brady: When I agreed to become the ceo of titan, you promised me, you promised me, there'd be no more secrets.
Victor: This has nothing to do with titan.
Sonny: But it has to do with family, right? You're always telling us, uncle vic, when it comes to family, we need to band together and protect our own.
Victor: What the hell do you think I'm doing?
Sonny: I don't know, but if it involves me and will, I need details.
Victor: All right, I'll tell you this much. I told diana, if she can get her gold-digging whore of a son to back off, I'd make it worth her while.
Sonny: Okay, well, what exactly did you offer her?
Marlena: What about leo's father?
John: Well, apparently, he... was very abusive, and it took a toll on leo. Diana said she did everything she could, but the damage was already done.
Marlena: Didn't know that.
John: So while I don't excuse his behavior here, I am trying to understand. That's why i didn't come down on him so hard before.
Marlena: You're amazing. That you can find compassion for a worm like that... yeah. You're a better person than I am.
John: Be careful.
Will: I don't know s-sarah that well, but from what I do know, she definitely doesn't seem like the type of woman who would settle.
Eric: Is that what you think she'd be doing with rex?
Will: [Sighs] Uh, well, not for me to say, really, but... I mean, I know he did blow it with her once, and maybe she thinks that the best thing to do is move on, you know? Not repeat the same mistake.
Rex: Hey, you guys.
Eric: Oh, hey, rex. How's it going?
Rex: Uh, I could really use a beer. Can I buy you another one?
Will: Oh, n--uh, thank you, but I'm--I'm actually already-- I'm headed out.
Eric: Hey, it's good to see you, but I just want you to know everything's gonna work out with you and sonny.
[Easygoing music over speakers]
Eric: So, how is, uh, everything going with sarah?
Rex: Sarah needs more time.
Eric: Did she say why?
Rex: Yeah, she did. It's because of you. -Their béarnaise sauce here is the best in town.
Chloe: What's going on here?
Gabi: Nothing. It's all good.
Chloe: Are you sure? Because that looked pretty tense.
Gabi: Oh, well, stefan and I--we were having a misunderstanding, but... everything's been cleared up, right? So I will see you at the office, oh, and by the way, this bitch right here--she's going to be copying hr and mr. Shin in every single conversation. #Metoo. Oh, chloe. Brady told me that you're living here now.
Chloe: Yeah, yeah.
Gabi: I hope you know what you're getting yourself into.
Stefan: I'm sorry you had to see that, but she provoked me.
Chloe: Hey, that's between you and gabi.
Victor: Never mind what i offered diana. Just know I'm doing everything I can for this family.
Marlena: Oh. I'm sorry. Am I interrupting?
Sonny: Hey, marlena. No, no, of course not.
Brady: No, but what brings you by?
Marlena: Victor called me, said he needed to see me right away.
Brady: Really? Why is that?
Victor: We need some privacy.
Sonny: Uncle vic--
[Tense music with chimes]
Sonny: Well, so much for full disclosure.
Brady: That's just victor being victor. He's behind you. We all are. Honestly, I think we should just handle this leo situation as a family.
Sonny: Thank you. Your support means so much to me. I'm really glad that we set aside our differences.
Brady: Me too. Me too. I gotta go do some stuff in town, but I'll, uh--I'll check in with you later, all right?
Marlena: This urgent news-- it's about sonny and will?
Victor: Yes, and it's also about diana colville and your husband.
Diana: You better take a step back and change your tone, young man.
Leo: And you better start talking about this pow-wow you had with victor. I know you have a past with him, and I know he can make people disappear.
Diana: What are you implying?
Leo: He wants me gone for what I did to sonny. How do i know you didn't join forces with him to make that happen?
Diana: You don'T.
Leo: It was bad enough when you cut me off and left me to make my own way. I swear, if you mess up my plans, I w--
Diana: Don't you dare threaten me. I know you killed your father, and I have the proof.
Leo: What kind of proof?
Diana: [Scoffs] You have more pressing issues to deal with right now. Go on. Get out of here. Go clean up your mess.
Leo: I will find out what you're up to.
Diana: I'll tell you what. You do you. I'll do me. Now go on. Beat it.
[Spacey synth music]
Rex: Sarah claims that she turned me down because she's trying to be sensitive to you.
Eric: I'm sorry.
Rex: No, d-don't be sorry, man. Look, this is not about you. It's about me. Sarah is clearly dealing with some major trust issues right now, and I just have to be patient, but I'm not gonna give up, not by a long shot, at least not until I prove to her that i am the right man for her.
Eric: And if you can't?
Rex: Well, that's just not an option, man. Eric, I love this woman and I am so determined to make this work.
Eric: Listen, I get where you're coming from, but maybe you should just ease off a little.
Rex: I hear you, brother.
Eric: You know, just give sarah some space.
Rex: No, I get it, but it's not gonna happen.
Gabi: It worked!
Brady: It worked. It? What it?
Gabi: Your plan. I found a way to get to shin, and he--he made stefan hire me.
Brady: Ah, that's good news!
Brady: Love that. Good for you. You know what, now that you're back in, might be a good time for us to team up now.
Gabi: We'll see.
Stefan: So she went crying to--to shin. Now I have to work with her. There's--I-I have no choice. There's nothing I can do.
Chloe: So you can't push back?
Stefan: [Scoffs] Not against the board. I-I don't even think so. I mean, the board thinks that gabi is the latin gwyneth-- of course, ms. Paltrow is an award-winning actress and gabi is a convicted murderer. Oh, my god, this whole thing's giving me a headache.
Chloe: Okay, just sit down and undo your belt. Get your mind out of the gutter. I need to relieve the tension in your temples and the blood flow needs to accelerate down through your heels, and you cannot have any restrictions on your body.
Stefan: I'm not gonna lie. That feels amazing.
Chloe: Well, good. You just need to relax.
Sarah: When the right woman comes along, if you're still that closed off, then you're gonna miss your chance to be with her, and I'd hate to see you go through life alone.
Eric: Yeah, me too.
Eric: You didn't ask for my opinion, so you know what?
Rex: No, no, no. Go ahead. Please, say what you have to say.
Eric: It's just that I think that if you start pushing too hard, you know what? You could start pushing her away.
Rex: Okay, yeah, you're right. I mean, I do need to dial it down quite a bit. All right, you know, it's not going to be easy, but I can show some restraint.
Rex: Wait a minute. Okay. So just because I have to back off, doesn't mean that I can't have some sort of a-a-- like an advocate.
Eric: I don't like the sound of this.
Rex: No, no, no, no. Just hear me out. Hear me out. So... I will follow sarah's lead, but in the meantime, why can't somebody help her see how perfect we are for each other?
Eric: No. Rex, we've already done this once. You asked me to be your wingman, and it didn't end well.
Rex: It's different this time. No, no, but it didn't end because it was your fault. Sarah listens to you. She values what you have to say.
Eric: Listen, rex, I'm not gonna do this. This is between you and sarah.
Rex: I'm asking you, eric, as my brother, to help me secure a future with the woman that means everything to me. Why would you turn me down?
Diana: John! What a nice surprise.
John: I made a decision here. I'm gonna tell leo that I'm his father.
Diana: Uh, we have discussed this.
John: Yeah, I know, you're all worried about how he's gonna react, but I think that if he knows we are all connected, he just might drop these charges against will and sonny. Besides... I want to be a part of my son's life.
Diana: I don't think that's a wise idea.
John: I think the secret coming out is going to be best for all of us.
Diana: Or, on the contrary, it could be a disaster.
Will: Sonny. What's up?
Sonny: So check this out. Uncle vic just cut a deal with leo's mom to get him out of our lives.
Will: What kind of deal?
Sonny: I'm not sure, but i think it has something to do with your grandmother.
[Suspenseful string music]
Marlena: You and diana have history?
Victor: Bad history. When I found out that she was leo's mother, I've had my people keeping close tabs on her. It seems she's had several private encounters with your husband.
Marlena: I-I'm aware that john has met with her.
Victor: Are you aware that he's keeping a secret from you?
Marlena: What kind of a secret?
Victor: When diana left salem all those years ago, she was pregnant...
Victor: With john's child.
Marlena: No, no, I'm sure that's not true.
Victor: I'm afraid it is. John is leo starke's father.
