Provided By SuzanneTripp: Yeah, if you want, you can go upstairs, get settled. You know, you can have my room.
Haley: No, I-I can't have your room.
Tripp: No, no, don't worry about it. I can sleep on the couch.
Claire: [Laughs] Tripp! Don't be silly. You can sleep in my room.
[Laughs] Not like we don't spend most nights in bed together anyway.
Tripp: Yeah, thanks, claire.
Tripp: Yeah, make yourself at home.
Haley: Thank you, guys, so much.
Claire: You know, you were right, tripp. Haley is awfully cute.
Tripp: Yeah, and really nice too.
Claire: Yeah, I mean, she seems to be. Anyway, I definitely get why jj's so into her. I really hope they can work things out.
Tripp: I don't know. I mean, he really screwed up by betraying her trust like that. I mean, she wouldn't even be in this mess if he'd just kept his mouth shut. Haley, what--what's wrong?
Haley: Jj's dad was just on the news, and he says that they need to make an example out of me. He's determined to have me deported. Oh, god...
Tripp: I'm so--I'm so sorry. Hey, I'm so sorry.
Jack: Blast me all you want. I can handle it.
Jennifer: I don't want to "blast" you, jack. You're a grown man; you can say and do whatever you want. But watching your little performance over there just made me so sad.
Jennifer: Yes, sad. Because when I met you, yes, i knew that you had this ruthless streak. But that was a long time ago, jack, and you worked so hard to change and you became a better man. And since you've been back, i have been hoping that that man is somewhere deep inside you: The man that I married, the man that I fell in love with. But I'm telling you right now, if you keep walking down this dark path, you will not only lose your memory, you will lose your soul, jack.
Jack: Did you know that you have a flair for the dramatic? I mean, you really do. You should run with it, literally, literally. The soaring rhetoric alone--you could really rack up the votes.
Jennifer: How could you joke like this right now? If ice finds that poor girl, there's a chance she will be deported, and it will ruin her life. And jj will never forgive himself... or you.
Jack [On laptop]: So if anyone here knows anything about the whereabouts of haley chen, please contact me or my campaign manager, eve donovan.
Haley: Did you guys hear that? Everyone will be looking for me and they're not gonna stop until I'm kicked out of this country!
Tripp: No, no, no, look, look, okay, no one here is going to report you. You are safe here, okay? That is not going to happen.
Haley: Right. Yeah, yeah, I-I know. Um, I'm just gonna go lie down really quick.
Tripp: I'll get you some fresh sheets.
Claire: Hang in there, haley.
Claire: Hi, eve, it's claire. Um, I need to speak to you right away.
Sonny: I can't believe how close leo came to busting us in his mom's room.
Will: Yeah, kinda scary. But at least we know that whatever is in diana's safe freaked leo out so much that he had to get his hands on it.
Sonny: Which can only mean it's the dirt we need to take him down and to make these charges go away.
Will: We just need to get it before leo does.
[Knock at door]
Diana: John! What's wrong?
John: It's marlena. There's been a terrible accident. She's--she's dead.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
John: [Sniffs] Marlena stepped off a curb and a truck ran a red light.
Diana: Oh. And she'S...dead? I mean, are you sure? I mean, she's really dead this time?
John: She died instantly. I saw her body, diana. It was my doc, cold and dead on that slab.
Diana: Oh, I'm so sorry. I am so, so sorry.
Diana: Because I know what marlena meant to you.
John: How am I gonna live without her?
Diana: Oh, you managed before somehow. Oh! Of course your heart is broken. Of course it is. But I'm here now, john, and I promise you, everything will be okay and it always will be. Everything really will be okay, if I can turn fantasy into reality.
Marlena: [Groans] Ugh. Hello there.
John: Oh, hey, baby.
John: I know it's early, but any update on kayla and the dna test?
Marlena: Oh, no, I'm afraid not yet. Although she's put a rush on the results. So pretty soon we should know if diana's telling us the truth.
John: That leo really is my son.
Will: Safecracking isn't exactly known to be easy.
Sonny: Well, that's why I'm gonna practice on uncle vic's safe.
Will: Don't you know the combination?
Sonny: That's not the point. Okay, the point is to be able to gain a skill set, so if we get back inside diana's room, we'll be able to pop that baby open and get whatever it is that makes leo sweat.
Will: Ah, I like the way you think.
Sonny: All right, I'll call you later.
[Phone beeps] What the hell?
Eve: Look, now isn't a good time, claire.
Claire: Uh, it's about haley chen.
Eve: Haley chen? Okay, you have my attention. So what do you know about haley chen?
Claire: Well, I saw jack's speech and I know that he's running for mayor. Is he serious about what he said about wanting to bring her to justice because she's illegal?
Eve: Jack meant every word of it. He feels that it's his duty to the people of salem, so tell me, what do you know, claire?
Claire: Uh, we need to do this in person.
Eve: Okay, um... you know what, I will meet you in the park right off of the square, okay?
Claire: All right, great. I'm leaving now.
Tripp: Who were you talking to? So there you are with your depression
Claire: Ah, it was fran. The new guy at work was a no-show, so she wants me to cover.
Tripp: But you just got off your shift.
Claire: Well, you know me. I am a team player and there is no way I am gonna leave that café short-staffed, so... I'll see you later, okay?
Tripp: Oh, claire, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Tripp: Why don't I just go instead?
Jennifer: The jack deveraux I knew would never betray his son to score political points.
Jack: I'm sorry that this is so hard on jj, but if you could just see through the emotion and the rhetoric, you would see this is actually a good thing.
Jennifer: Only for you, jack.
Jack: And jj! He was gonna get in so much trouble, trying to play hero with a girl who was just using him.
Eve: Oh, good, you're still preaching, but something tells me I've missed nothing but the same ol', same ol'. Jack, I've got some campaign issues that I need to deal with right now. Are you all right with the hand wringing?
Jack: You, uh, take care of everything you need to take care of. I'll...I'll handle the press.
Eve: Okay. Mm... mm.
Leo: Way to watch where you're going. Give me that!
Sonny: "Safecracking for dummies"? Thinking about a career change?
Leo: Mind your own business, unless you want to get seriously hurt. Give me that.
Diana: John, what's wrong?
John: Marlena died in a plane crash.
Diana: [Gasps] Are you really sure she was on board this time?
John: No survivors.
Diana: Oh... oh-ho-ho...
Diana: Oh, it's not as if i could cause a whole airplane to crash. There's got to be an easier way.
Marlena: To leo not being your son. Oh. You don't want to drink to that?
John: I don't know, doc. I just--I don't see diana lying about this.
Marlena: I see diana lying through her teeth if it gets her what she wants, and what she wants is you.
John: [Chuckles] Well, she can't have me, because my heart belongs to only one woman, and that is the beautiful, brilliant, incomparable doctor marlena evans, and don't you ever forget that.
Marlena: Mm... oh...I am so ready for this whole thing to be over and for us to know the truth.
John: Amen to that.
[Glasses clinking] And you know what? We gotta look on the bright side here.
Marlena: Ooh, my gosh, there's a bright side?
John: You know, there is. If leo is my son... I think I can use that as a connection, convince him to drop this case with will and sonny. After all, leo will practically be their family.
Will: What's this about leo?
Marlena: Oh. (Announcer) do you push through migraine?
Sonny: Don't you ever get tired of being an ass?
Leo: You should watch your mouth.
Sonny: Or what, you're gonna come at me with another threat? 'Cause you already got me charged with attempted murder.
Leo: Because you tried to kill me!
Sonny: You hate me almost as much as I hate you. Why don't we just end this? Let's get a divorce. Right now. Why wait till death do us part? We're both hoping one another will die.
Leo: The inheritance. And we've already had this conversation. I said no.
Sonny: I will make it worth your while. Okay, a huge chunk of alimony. All you have to do is drop the charges.
Marlena: We weren't really talking about leo.
Will: Oh, except when you said his name.
John: No, no, no, I--I was just--I was telling doc, i need to apologize to you about what happened with leo and doc the other day. You know, I know it upset you, will, and that wasn't my intention at all.
Will: It's okay. You know, I should be the one apologizing to you. Honestly, you were trying to break up an ugly situation, one that could have got a lot uglier if you hadn't shown up with the way that grandma was going all kickass on leo.
Will: Not that I feel sorry for him.
Marlena: Look, I may have overreacted just a little bit.
John: That's only because she loves you so damn much, will. We both do. And my first loyalty is always to family. You know that.
Will: I do, I know that. I was just so ticked at leo and the power he has over us. I wish that there was a way to get that bastard out of our lives.
Marlena: We're all working very hard on a way to get leo to drop the charges.
Will: Actually, sonny and i may have figured out a way to do that.
John: Really? How?
Will: We broke into diana's room.
Diana: Mm... mm...
[Knock at door] Oh, john, what's wrong?
John: Marlena choked on a strawberry. Chocolate-covered!
Diana: Aww... her favorite, right?
John: Pamplona. Running of the bulls. Marlena got gored. Struck by lightning.
John: Pow. Nothing but ashes. The chute didn't open. Great white...
Diana: [Gasps] Oh, enough dreaming. I need a plan, a real plan, to get that woman gone for good. Ah, maybe some fresh air will stir the creative juices.
Claire: Oh, tripp, that is so sweet, really, but, look, I've got this, okay?
Tripp: It's really no problem.
Claire: No, seriously, you need to stay here and be with haley. Like, she literally just met me, so she's probably not that comfortable around me. You know, but you guys, on the other hand, you two sort of have a thing, so...
Tripp: Look, I told you, there's no "thing."
Claire: Okay, look, all i meant by that was you've hung out a couple of times and so she feels safer around you. All right? And that's what's important, that she feels safe.
Tripp: You really are the best, you know that?
Claire: [Laughs softly] All right, I really do have to get to work. I don't want to be late. Okay?
Tripp: No smoking.
Claire: [Laughs] As if.
Jack: Thank you for your support and thank you for your vote.
You're just what salem needs.
Jack: I think I just might have a shot at this mayor thing.
Jennifer: Oh, yeah, yeah, you're right. You're living the dream, jack. Too bad it's eve's dream. Because the man that I knew and loved was a champion of the underdog, not someone who would scapegoat a young girl to further his own ambitions.
Jack: You need to forget about the past. Let it go and think of the future.
Jennifer: Oh, really, is that one of your new campaign slogans? I mean, it's a lot better than "clean slate."
Jack: How many times do i have to tell you? That's how I think of my life, a clean slate. Forget about the man you all remember me to be, what I did, who I was. That's over now. That is the past. The old jack deveraux is dead. Let him rest in peace.
Leo: For a smart guy, you can be incredibly stupid. Why would I give you a divorce when I can stay here in the mansion and live it up as mr. Sonny kiriakis? After you and will have your asses tossed in the slammer.
Sonny: Basic human decency?
Leo: It's not like I don't have a heart. I will absolutely show up for conjugal visits.
Sonny: Yeah, well, you had your chance. Soon as will and I find out what your mom is hiding, you're gonna leave here empty-handed. Better yet...in handcuffs.
Will: So, just as we started looking around, leo shows up.
Marlena: How could you be so reckless? You know how volatile he is. If he caught you there--
Will: But he didn'T. But he didn'T. And it actually paid off, because as soon as he got there, he went straight to diana's safe and tried to open it.
John: That's interesting. Maybe she said something to him, indicated she had some evidence against him, and he wants it just as bad as we do.
Will: Well, that means we need to get it first. The only problem is, sonny and i don't know anything about cracking a safe.
Marlena: Well, luckily, we know somebody who does.
Jennifer: You may be able to sell this clean slate to your voters, jack, but I can see right through you. Even if you've forgotten, I know what a big heart you have. And I am not gonna give up on you until I can make you see that. I'm not.
Shelly: Mr. Deveraux?
Shelly: Shelly santos. I'm nurse at university hospital.
Jack: And a supporter, i hope.
Shelly: I want to thank you for taking such a courageous stance on illegal immigration.
Jack: A difficult issue, to be sure, but I stand firmly in favor of putting the citizens of salem first--their safety, their security, their peace of mind.
Shelly: I hope you stick to your guns and you don't let anyone pressure you to change your mind about this or anything else.
Tripp: Hey. Were you able to get a quick nap in?
Haley: It was a little hard to sleep.
Tripp: Well, you're safe here, you know that, right?
Haley: Honestly, with all this going on, I wonder if I'll ever feel safe again.
Tripp: Look, that ass deveraux might have gotten ice all over this, but there's no way they're gonna find out that you're here, okay?
Haley: I really can't thank you enough, tripp, for letting me stay here while I figure things out.
Tripp: Maybe we can help you with that too.
Haley: Where's claire?
Tripp: She had to take another shift at the restaurant.
Haley: She really is cool with this, right? She'S... she's not gonna say anything?
Tripp: Not a chance.
Eve: Ugh, there you are.
Claire: Sorry, sorry. I had to make up some excuse to get out of the loft. Tripp was asking me a lot of questions and I really don't want him to get suspicious.
Eve: Okay, you know, you can worry about your boyfriend later. Tell me what you know about haley chen.
Claire: She's hiding at our place.
Eve: She's there right now?
Claire: Yeah, tripp brought her back to the loft and--and he offered to let her stay there.
Eve: Oh, this is great! This is so great. Thank you so much, claire. This is really gonna get the public's attention.
Claire: Okay, eve, eve, wait. Please, can you promise me that tripp won't get in trouble for hiding her--
Eve: You--you have my word.
Claire: Okay, and also he cannot know that I'm the one who told you, okay? Please.
Eve: Claire, why are you doing this?
Claire: Because it's the right thing to do.
Eve: Oh, the right thing to do. Like when you flooded the bella contest with fake votes so you could win?
Claire: Okay, look, that was a mistake, and I admitted it, and I learned from it. Right now I am--I am trying to be a good person and a better citizen.
Eve: Mm-kay. Well, leopards don't get new spots, even pretty, talented ones like you, so why don't you tell me the real reason you want haley chen to be kicked out of this country, okay?
Sonny: Okay, so "rotate the dial counter-clockwise. Listen for two clicks. A stethoscope or drinking glass will amplify the sound of the tumblers." Okay...
Wow, this is gonna be harder than I thought.
John: Safecracking, it's, uh--it's more of an art than it is a skill.
Marlena: [Laughs] Aww, you've done it many times.
John: Yeah, yeah, I've had a little experience at it. But, you know, without the make and model number, it's really kind of a shot in the dark.
Marlena: Ah, wouldn't be a problem, 'cause you're a super spy. You can do this. And as far as getting access to diana's, well...you've got a lot of reasons to be doing that, don't you?
John: W-well, yeah, but the distraction--distracting her, that would be the big problem here.
Marlena: I don't know, she's already pretty distracted by you.
John: What are you doing?
Will: Wi--will you at least try?
John: Yeah, I'm in. I'll gi--I'll give it a shot. Sure I will.
Will: Thank you, thank you, really, thank you so much. This might finally be the break that sonny and I have been waiting for. Thank you. Oh, by the way, pro-tip...
Will: The combination is not leo's birthday.
John: [Laughs] Okay.
Shelly: I'm 100% behind you about these illegals. Undocumented immigrants have no rights to our jobs or our services. It's got to stop.
Jack: And it will stop, when I'm in office.
Jennifer: Oh, please, like haley took your job.
Shelly: Maybe not. But when my nephew applied to be in the nursing program, he was turned down.
Jennifer: Well, maybe he wasn't qualified.
Shelly: He was as qualified as I am. And now where is he? Working in some big box store and driving an uber because a chinese girl took a job that should have been his.
Jennifer: Whoa, okay, well, haley was qualified, and she's very good at what she does.
Shelly: Defend her all you want. Bottom line, she doesn't belong here, and I can't wait until she gets caught and deported. Maybe I'll go look for her myself.
Jennifer: Oh, you're so compassionate. I see, yeah, wow.
Shelly: I save it for the real--
Jennifer: Oh, yeah, yeah, right, for the "real" americans. Yes, I know.
Shelly: Between these mexican killers, that chinese girl, and god knows who else hiding in the woodwork, salem has to fight back, protect ourselves. You've stepped up, mr. Deveraux, spoken out, and that makes you a true american hero. You can count on my vote.
Jack: Thank you. It's actually--it's constituents like yourself who are gonna make the real change here. Remember that. And, uh, spread the good word. Thank you. Well... it seems... seems my position resonates with the voters.
Haley: [Sighs] This is driving me crazy. They could be coming down the street any minute now or knocking on the door.
Tripp: Yeah, especially when you're standing at the window, announcing to the world that you're here.
Haley: Sorry, I-I just--
Tripp: It's nerves. I get it. But, look, you have nothing to worry about. Okay? You heard ciara. She's not saying a word. And neither will claire and I.
Haley: Yeah, of all the places that I could land, two of three of you are related to the police commissioner.
Tripp: Yeah, and three out of the three of us are dedicated to protecting you.
Haley: I really don't want to cause any of you guys trouble. Tripp...
Tripp: Look, look, you-- you may have been screwed over by jj's dad.
Haley: [Scoffs] And jj.
Tripp: But... that's not going to happen here. Hey, trust me. Ciara and claire and I are on this. We're gonna do whatever it takes to protect you from ice and keep you from getting deported, okay?
Claire: Okay, fine. Haley chen is, uh--she's really getting in the way.
Eve: But I thought you and tripp were good.
Claire: Oh, we are. We're great, finally, and I-i really need to keep it that way. See, I feel for haley. I really do, but... you know, tripp is just really worried about her all the time.
Claire: And it makes things complicated...
Eve: Yeah, men. Men and their hero complexes. They feel like they need to rescue the little innocent because they can't take care of themselves. It's hell when you fall in love with one of the good guys. I know.
Claire: So--so I'm a horrible person?
Eve: No, you are... very adept in looking out for yourself, claire.
Claire: God, tripp is so proud of me for doing the right thing. So I-I don't know. Am I being selfish? 'Cause haley seems pretty cool. And I-I really do trust tripp. So is it really that bad that she's here illegally? I-- I don't think she's hurting anyone, and I really don't want to be on the wrong side of this issue.
Eve: So you're gonna let a little political correctness take your eye off the prize? Haley could hurt you. She could throw herself at tripp, manipulate him... you saw what she did to jj. She totally played him, and it would be awful if she got between you and tripp. So I think you're doing the right thing. Listen, take it from somebody who had to learn the hard way. You gotta take care of yourself, claire, because nobody else will.
Eve: All right?
Claire: Maybe you're right.
Eve: Oh, I know--I know that I'm right.
Claire: Okay. Can you just please promise me that nobody will know I'm the one who told you?
Eve: Your secret is safe with me.
Eve: Haley chen is as good as gone.
Andrew wanted nothing to do with his volcano demonstration.
Haley: So it's my first rotation in the er and I'm supposed to switch out the iv bag. Piece of cake, right?
Tripp: I'm guessing usually?
Haley: [Laughs] I was so nervous that I pulled the line out to put into a new iv bag, right, but I forgot to take the old bag off the pole, and, mind you, the bags are super pressurized, so saline went everywhere and, ugh, I was so, so completely drenched and it was so embarrassing, but good news is my patient laughed and i survived my first day.
Tripp: Well, it sounds like you really love what you do.
Haley: Yeah, it's all I ever wanted.
Claire: Hey, guys.
Tripp: Hey, what are you doing back so soon?
Claire: Well, it turns out things are a little bit slow at the café, so they didn't need me after all, but I did manage to score some takeout. Is anyone hungry?
Tripp: Oh, you are an angel.
Jack: You know, there's probably a lot of people who think like shelly santos. They just don't have the guts to speak their mind.
Jennifer: One bitter, narrow-minded person does not prove your point.
Jack: You are a hypocrite.
Jennifer: Excuse me?
Jack: A hypocrite! You're criticizing eve all the time for not following the rules, but you stand there and defend this young woman who knowingly broke the law.
Jennifer: Jack, haley is hardly a criminal. Deporting someone who came to this country as a child through no choice of her own is morally reprehensible.
Jack: Then take it up to the people who made the choice for her. If anything happens to chen, it's on them, not on me.
Jennifer: Unbelievable. I cannot believe how cold you are.
Jack: This decision to run for mayor--this whole election-- is my opportunity to have what i want, to have the life that i want, and I'm sorry that disappoints you. I'm sorry. But I'm not gonna let haley chen or anyone else get in my way.
Shelly: Dr. Evans? Shelly santos.
Marlena: Hi, shelly. What is it?
Shelly: The test results you wanted are in.
Marlena: Okay, I'll be right there. Thank you.
John: The results?
Marlena: Are in.
John: Okay, I'll tell you what. Why don't you go on over to the hospital? You pick 'em up and I will meet you at the office once I take care of a little bit of business.
Marlena: All right. 'Cause if anybody can crack diana's safe, it's you.
John: Let's go.
Diana: Excuse me, nurse. A word?
Shelly: How can I help you?
Diana: Um, it's a little sensitive. Do you mind?
Shelly: What's this about?
Diana: Uh, I'm a reporter. And I'm doing a story on nurse chen. And I would like to do an exposé on the hospital's possible involvement, and I was told you might be sympathetic. Is there some way that you can help me get into dr. Marlena evans' confidential files?
Shelly: Dr. Evans? Why?
Diana: Well, rumor has it that she treated chen, and I am looking for proof that she knew the girl was illegal.
Shelly: She's a bit of a bleeding heart.
Diana: Especially since she didn't tell anybody. So does that mean maybe you'll help me?
Shelly: No, I can't do that. Dr. Evans is very well-respected and--
Diana: And what? She's allowed to help somebody break the law because she's well-respected?
Shelly: I just--I don't like the idea of going after dr. Evans.
Diana: Fine. If that's the way you feel.
Shelly: Wait. I shouldn't do this. But what's right is right. I can get you the login credentials. You should be able to find whatever it is that you need.
Diana: Thank you. Exactly what I was hoping for.
Jennifer: Jack, don't let eve do this to you. Please don't give in to--
Jack: "Give in"? I'm fighting for what I want. I've never been clearer.
Jennifer: Not like this. Not hurting innocent people--
Eve: Ah, if I knew that she was still hanging on, I would have rescued you sooner.
Jennifer: This is between jack and me.
Eve: Not anymore. Now that he has officially announced his candidacy, moving on, he's gonna be very busy, so if you would like to speak with the candidate, you're gonna have to go through his campaign manager... which is me. Mm...
Jack: What was that for?
Eve: That is a pre-celebration. I know exactly where haley chen is.
Haley: I didn't even realize how hungry I was. Thank you so much for this, claire.
Claire: It's the least we could do after everything you've been through.
Haley: You and tripp and ciara--you guys don't even know me and you're letting me stay here.
Claire: Hey, hey, we are happy to help.
[Laughs] And, you know, it's not like you're gonna be staying here for that long anyway, right?
Diana: You will be much better off without her, my darling. You'll see. Okay...
I'm in! All right. Let's have some fun. Dr. Marlena evans' medical history, medical history... jackpot. "Severely allergic... to penicillin." Hmm. John, what's wrong?
John: It's marlena. She had a severe reaction to penicillin. They don't know how it happened. They think it's an accident, but she's gone. She's dead. My doc is dead. I'm all alone.
Diana: No... oh, it's all right, I'M. That's all right.
Diana: [Chuckling] Death by penicillin. Couldn't happen to a nicer gal.
Shelly: Dr. Evans. Here's the test results you wanted.
Marlena: Thank you.
Sonny: All right, almost there.
[Tumblers clicking] All right! Come to papa. Ah, damn it!
[Sighs] Well, I guess 12th time's the charm.
[Phone ringing] Will?
Will: How's the safecracking going?
Sonny: [Sighs] It's not.
Will: Well, we're in luck. John has cracked all kinds of safes and he's on it.
Sonny: Really? Oh, that's--that's fantastic.
Will: He's headed over to diana's right now. Can you occupy leo so he doesn't go over there?
Sonny: Well, I would if i could, but he just left a little while ago. I have no idea where he is.
John: Okay... here we go. Let's see what all the fuss is about.
Leo: Here we go. "The first rule of safecracking..."
