Abe: Hey, you're hard at it.
Sheila: Yeah, last debate before the election tomorrow. We've got to be perfect. Oh, and look at you, okay, with the lucky sneakers on. So you did like my gift after all.
Abe: Well, I'm all about the luck and the last debate was a fiasco, so, thought I'd cover all my bases.
[Cell phone beeps] Haha! Well, you just got some. You pulled even with jk in all five of the latest polls. Way to tie it up. Congratulations.
Eve: Ugh, damn it. How could this be happening?
Jack: What is it?
Eve: Look at this. It's a dead heat. You know, we got a bump right after the wedding, but now abe's breathing down our necks, jack.
Jack: You're too worried. We got this.
Eve: Well... how can you be so sure about that?
Jack: I have a little something up my sleeve that should do just the trick.
Tripp: Hey, so our first official piece of mail addressed to mr. And mrs. Tripp dalton.
Haley: Oh, god. It's not from ice, is it?
Tripp: No, relax, mrs. Dalton, it's from the photographer. It must be our official wedding photos.
Haley: Mm, yeah, that was-- that was really smart of you to set that up.
Tripp: It's got to look legit, right? Let's see.
Yeah, you look beautiful.
Haley: I look like someone who married a nice guy for a green card.
Tripp: What's up with you?
Haley: Uh, it's just, today is the day, the deadline. It's been exactly 30 days since I got my deportation notice.
Tripp: And agent smith seemed to buy the wedding and ice hasn't hassled us at all, so chill, okay?
Haley: Or I should just go pack my bags right now.
[Cell phone rings] Oh, god, it--it's justin.
[Cell phone ringing] This could be it.
Jj: Thank you.
Claire: Mm-hmm. So, you still as bummed about tripp and haley's wedding as I am?
Jj: Yeah, it sucks.
Eli: Good morning.
Jj: Hey, good morning.
Eli: Um, thought I'd run into you. I want you to know that forensics got back to me about that lighter.
Jj: So they tested it? Oh, that' great. Were they able to connect it to the fire that almost killed ciara?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Eli: I'm sorry to say, but there was nothing that linked the lighter to the fire, so we're back to where we started.
Claire: Okay. Which means that jordan must be guilty.
Eli: Um, she still claims she had nothing to do with it. Uh... here you go. You guys have a good day.
Jj: Good luck with the case.
Claire: Huh, well, guess that settles it.
Jj: I don't know, mm, I... I respect the--the pd forensics team, but I still can't shake the feeling that this is the same lighter.
Haley: Yeah, okay. Yeah, I will, tha--thank you. Okay.
Tripp: So, what did justin say?
Haley: I--I'm not getting deported.
Tripp: That... that's amazing.
Haley: Yeah, I know, right?
Tripp: That's the best news. That means we actually pulled this off. Yeah, we did, and... tripp, this--this--this never would've happened without you. I owe you everything.
Laverne: Boy or girl?
Laverne: How sweet. What's his name?
Laverne: Oh, that's a good name. From the bible. I think it means "beloved."
Lani: It does, yeah.
Laverne: I can tell from the look on your face that the name fits. You clearly love your son very much.
Lani: Yeah. I--I mean, um, actually, he'S... he's not mine.
Eve: So what's this secret weapon that you got up your sleeve that's gonna win us the election, jack?
Jack: You remember I told you I overheard abe and sheila having an argument?
Jack: I put someone on the job, they found out what's going on, and it's gold, eve. Gold.
Eve: Okay, well, don't keep me in suspense, jack. What is it?
Jack: That sanctimonious son of bitch lit into me the other day, waving his decency and morals in my face. He's nothing more than a-- than a--than a hypocrite. Total hypocrite.
[Laughs] Look at this. Just read 'em and weep.
Eve: Oh [Laughs]. Mm-mm.
Sheila: Oh, I'm sorry about that.
Abe: [Laughs] It's okay. We're friends.
Sheila: Yeah, without benefits, thank god. And I'm truly sorry about the kiss.
Abe: Well, it's in the past. And it confirms what we both already know.
Sheila: Yeah, zero chemistry, as in zero. And I still can't believe you don't like seafood.
Abe: Well, I do get points for the sneakers, right?
Sheila: [Laughs] Yeah. Your style's improving thanks to me. But can you do me a favor, please?
Abe: I can try.
Sheila: Can we just forget the kiss ever happened?
Abe: I would like nothing more. It never happened.
So there you are with your depression
Eve: Wow, it looks like somebody's about to have their me too moment.
Jack: Yeah, and the only problem is we can't tell from these photos whether they're lip lock is consensual or not.
Eve: You know what, jack? It doesn't matter. Either mr. Holier than thou is cheating on his girlfriend that he's supposed to be in a committed relationship with, or he's sexually harassing his assistant whose an ex-con who's probably so desperate to keep her job that she's not gonna report him. Either way, mm-mm-mm, I think his reputation just went...
Eve: That's great.
Abe: Oh, my god. Oh. I can't believe you're here. Oh, I've missed you so much.
Valerie: And I've missed you so much.
Abe: [Laughs] Oh, you know, I... with your busy schedule, I--I never dreamed that you'd be able to make it.
Valerie: Well, I wouldn't miss you in this debate for the world. I'm just so sorry I wasn't able to get here before today.
Abe: Well, you're here now.
Abe: And that's all that matters.
Sheila: Amen to that.
Valerie: Mm. Well, abe tells me that he could not run his campaign or his office without you. I am so grateful you're here to take care of him.
Sheila: I mean, it works both ways, right? I mean, I have a boss who always has my back, and I've never been able to say that before.
Valerie: Mm, well, you two might've gotten off to a rocky start, but you certainly seem to be working well together now.
Valerie: Wow, with all the pressure with the campaign, I can't imagine that it's been easy. In fact, you two sounded a little bit worried when I walked in here. What--what never happened?
[Country music playing]
Claire: Hmm. Wow. So you almost say that like you're still a cop, except you're not, so, um, case closed, right?
Jj: Well, it looks that way. Guess I should just let it go, but, damn, I was just so sure that ben left this at the loft and that we finally had him.
Claire: Well, too bad all you found out is that I was stupid enough to pick up smoking for a while.
Jj: I can't disagree with you on that.
Jj: But this is still yours, if you want it.
Claire: Huh? Sure, yeah, why not?
Eve: Uh, claire, um, could I have a word with you, please, in private?
Claire: Sure. Yes.
Jack: Hey, there.
You here for the debate?
Jj: No. Just grabbing some coffee.
Jack: Oh. How about your mom? Is she gonna be here?
Jj: Are you kidding? Mom left town. She told me it was to visit abigail, but I know she just needed to get away from you. And eve.
Eve: Claire, what are you doing with this damn lighter? Don't you think you should get rid of it?
Claire: Look, the cops couldn't connect it to the fire, so they returned it, so it's really nothing to worry about.
Eve: Oh, right, said the girl who had a complete meltdown in my hotel room. You think it's smart to hold onto it, claire?
Claire: Look, I don't care about a stupid lighter, eve, when my whole entire life is going up in flames.
Eve: Okay, I think that's a real bad choice of words there.
Claire: [Sighs, chuckles] I am living with my boyfriend and his wife. Do you have any idea what that's like? It was never supposed to go on this far.
Eve: Well, it has, okay? And you're just gonna have to deal with it.
Claire: Deal with it?
Claire: Okay. Yeah. I'll deal with it. I'm gonna find a way to end it, eve. For good.
Haley: [Sighs] Wouldn't want claire to walk in on us doing this.
Tripp: Yes, she knows that this is important and she's just as dedicated to make sure that you're not gonna be deported.
Tripp: What--what's wrong?
Haley: Justin had some other news, and it's not so good. It affects you, too. I'm just a normal person who got an awful skin condition.
Eve: Would you listen to me, claire brady? You get this jealousy thing under control, 'cause the last time it got the best of you you nearly killed ciara.
Claire: Okay. It was one time, eve. I'm not a crazy lunatic. That is not gonna happen ever again.
Eve: Well, good, I hope you mean that.
Claire: Yes, I do.
Eve: Okay, because... if you try something like that again, you're not gonna get away with it, okay? So don'T.
Sheila: Oh, we were just talking about the first debate, with that skank melinda trask. That whole thing turned into a circus, so we're just pushing that behind us and focusing on the present, because this debate is gonna kick some serious ass.
Abe: And it's gonna be better this time. Especially now that you're here.
Abe: And my lucky sneakers worked.
Valerie: Wow, those are quite fresh, and lucky too?
Abe: Yeah. Oh, they're a gift from sheila. It's a long story, so, uh... y--you know, it's just another instance in which she was right and I was wrong.
Abe: So we better get over to the square, right?
Valerie: Oh, listen, I--i need to make a call for work, so let me meet you guys over there.
Abe: I'm so happy you're here.
Valerie: And I'm so proud that the man I love is standing up for everything that is decent and right. Mm.
[Laughter] All right, so let's go. Thank you.
Valerie: Thank you, babe. Ah.
Jack: I never intended to hurt your mother.
Jj: How do you think she would feel? She kidnapped you to stop you from marrying eve. To tell you the truth about the man you were. About the amazing life you had together, and you threw it in her face when you married that snake eve anyway. What the hell is wrong with you?
Jack: I understand that you're protective of her.
Jj: Protective of anyone that gets between you and what you want. You know, you've... you traded whatever humanity you had for something you think is gonna make you happy, but it never will.
Jj: I am not your son.
Eli: Mom. What?
Valerie: Hi. Hey.
Eli: Hey, I didn't know you were in town already.
Valerie: Yeah, I was--I was-- I know how busy you are. I didn't wanna bother you.
Eli: I'm never too busy for you, like, ever.
Eli: Well, I know abe is thrilled that you're here to support him at the debate.
Valerie: Yeah, I'm so looking forward to watching him shine. Will I see you there?
Eli: I wish, but I'm working 24/7 on the holly jonas kidnapping case.
Valerie: Oh, I heard about that. Breaks my heart.
Eli: I'm afraid what I might do when we catch these guys.
Valerie: I can only imagine how hard this must be for you and lani, working on a case like this.
Eli: Lani ain't working on this case. She's preoccupied with another child at the moment.
Laverne: The kidnapping of that little girl really has this town on edge. I hope you're being careful.
Lani: Thank you for the warning, but I would never let anything happen to my baby.
Laverne: I thought you said he wasn't yours.
Lani: He's--he's not. I just feel so responsible for him. I know how special he is and how much he means to his mother, so keeping him safe is my priority, and right now I think I need to find a place to change this little guy. Have a good day.
Tripp: Okay, all right, so we'll figure it out.
Haley: Like you haven't dealt enough. God, I am such an idiot.
[Stammers] I shouldn't have stayed so mad at jj. I should've just forgiven him and accepted his proposal and none of this would've happened, none of us would be in this situation.
[Clears throat] Hi. Why do, uh, mr. And mrs. Dalton have their heads together?
Tripp: Hey, I was actually just about to text you.
Claire: Okay, hi. So serious.
Haley: Oh, I'll leave you two alone.
Claire: Mm. So, um, what's going on?
Tripp: Uh, haley's 30-day deadline was today.
Claire: Oh, my god, is she gonna be deported? Oh, tripp, I'm so sorry. That's awful.
Tripp: Actually, she can stay. Isn't--isn't that great?
Claire: Wow. Wow. That's amazing.
Tripp: Yeah, but there is some other news, um, not-- not great news. Um... according to justin, agent smith is gonna be eagle-eyeing us until haley gets her green card.
Claire: Okay, well, how long is that gonna take? What, months?
Tripp: Could take years.
Eli: Lani is totally focused on david. And I mean, like, laser-focused, above everything else. Work--
Eli: Yeah. I just don't think it's healthy. I--
Lani: Oh, hi.
Lani: Valerie. I didn't know you were in town.
Valerie: It's so good to see you, it's been way too long. How've you been?
Lani: Busy, but good. Um, this is david.
Valerie: Well, hello, handsome boy. Yeah, you guys told me all about david. You know, I'm going to... to the debate, but if you need to get to the precinct or spend some time with eli, I'm happy to watch david for a bit.
Lani: Oh, uh, that's really sweet of you, valerie, but he's teething right now and he gets a little cranky, and I pretty much have a routine now.
Eli: All right, well, look, uh, I'll see you later.
Lani: Oh. I'm gonna go to work.
Eli: All right, mom. I love you. Talk soon, right?
Valerie: Yes, we will.
Lani: Uh, yeah, we also should get over to the debate.
Valerie: You know, would you mind if we talked for a bit?
Lani: Sure, what about?
Valerie: About david. I was a single mother with a small child, and so I understand what you're going through.
Lani: I'm not a single mother, valerie. I'm just helping out a friend.
Valerie: Yeah, um, I'm aware of the circumstances, but, you know, it's a very, very tremendous responsibility, and you have such a demanding job and I understand it's been consuming you.
Lani: Eli put you up to this, didn't he?
Valerie: No, he didn'T. But you can understand that he's concerned with you.
Lani: You know what, valerie? I really don't wanna talk about this right now, okay?
Jack: My son hates me even more, if possible.
Eve: Mm, well, you're wife, she loves you and believes in you, okay?
Sheila: Well, well, well, if it isn't the losing team.
Eve: [Laughs] The election isn't until tomorrow.
Sheila: Well, we tied out the poles, fancy pants. Momentum's on our side.
Abe: You know, I'm confident that the public is finally seeing the light as to who's the better candidate. Tonight is only the beginning as to what will happen at the polls tomorrow.
Jack: May the best man win.
Claire: [Snickers] Years? Are you freaking kidding me, tripp. What? How many years? What, one, two? What? A dozen? What?
Tripp: I don't know, maybe three.
Claire: [Gasps] Three years? No. Come on, no, that's not possible. Tripp, that's not how this is supposed to be. I am not gonna live for three years like this.
Tripp: I know, I know, just come here, come here.
Claire: No, I cannot.
Tripp: Baby, I'm so sorry. Okay? It's not what I expected either, but, you know, we'll figure this out, okay? We're in this together, right?
Claire: Yeah, yeah, yeah, with your wife, haley.
Tripp: But you're the one I love. You're the one I'm committed to, okay? All right? You understand that?
[Door knocking] You okay?
Laverne: Good morning, mr. Dalton. And ms. Brady. You all right?
Claire: Yeah, I'm fine. Allergies. Spring is the worst.
Laverne: And what brings you here this fine morning?
Claire: Well, I do live here.
Laverne: You live here? With your ex and his new wife? I've heard of modern relationships, but that's a new one.
Tripp: And I have to say, it's something that ice will be taking a closer look at. Just in case this has all been a charade.
Haley: Hey, claire, I, uh--oh! Hi, agent smith. Good morning.
Laverne: It's certainly an interesting one.
Haley: Uh, I found this box for you. Um, there's more in our room and if you need, we can help you pack.
Haley: Yeah, that's why claire's here. She's, um--she's moving out today.
Presenting downtherecare with cottonelle.
Jj: You okay?
Lani: Yeah, I just... I lost his teething ring and it has to be somewhere around here.
Jj: Oh, I'll help you find it. Um...
Lani: Damn it, I...
Jj: Just--just a teething ring. Uh-oh. This has nothing to do with a teething ring, does it?
Lani: [Sighs] Do you think that it's wrong for me to be taking care of jordan's baby?
Jj: No, no, of course not. Rafe has been out of commission and busy, but I think it's incredibly generous that you stepped up. Why are you thinking otherwise?
Lani: Certain people seem to have a problem with it.
Jj: Like who?
Lani: Eli. His mom. I mean, all I'm doing is trying to keep this little guy safe.
Jj: I mean, look how he's looking at you.
[Chuckles] Kid's crazy about you. I don't see how there could be possibly anything wrong with taking great care of them 'cause you obviously are.
Thank you. At least one person doesn't think I'm going too far.
Jj: Oh. Look at this. Huh.
Jj: Found it. Happy ending.
Lani: Thank you.
Jj: You're welcome.
Lani: Again, um, I'm headed to go see my dad and wish him good luck for the debate. You wanna go?
Jj: I do. Yeah.
Lani: Are you supporting your dad? You two must've patched things up.
Jj: No, hell no. I'm going to support your dad.
Valerie: So proud of you.
Sheila: I'm thinking i should've picked your tie.
Abe: [Laughs] Come on, nobody's gonna care about my tie when they hear what i have to say.
Sheila: You got that right.
Eve: Look at them. So confident, so sure of their win. Almost hate the thought of them turning to ash right in front of this town. Not really.
[Chuckles] Have I told you how brilliant you are?
Jack: When I want something I get it.
Eve: Well, that's another thing we have in common.
Abe: Oh, my girl. Yeah, oh.
Lani: Hello, dad.
Lani: I am so proud of you. So proud of you.
Abe: Thank you.
Lani: Good luck today.
Abe: Yes. I'll need it.
Jj: Abe, good morning to you too, sir.
Abe: All right, my man.
Jj: The best man this town's ever had. Good going.
Eve: Thought you weren't coming, jj.
Jj: Changed my mind.
Eve: What, you gonna cause some trouble? Shoot your mouth off because daddy upset you, huh? Why don't you just leave?
Jj: It's a free country, eve. I'm staying.
Laverne: You're moving out?
Claire: Really? [Snickers] Why the hell would I stay here? I hate living with them. It's been absolute torture, actually. Um, but, you know, I couldn't find another place until now.
Laverne: I'll include this on my report. Your deportation might've been waved due to the change of your status, but we'll be monitoring you, regularly. And since this is a legitimate marriage, I'm sure neither of you has a problem with that. Right?
Haley: Not at all.
Laverne: Good. Enjoy your day. And good luck with that move.
Claire: Why--why would you say that, haley? There is no way in hell that I'm moving out of here. This is my home. You, you are gonna call laverne right now and tell her that you made a very big mistake, okay? That you asked me to stay because you need the rent money.
Tripp: No one is gonna believe that.
Claire: Okay, are you seriously agreeing with her right now?
[Sighs] Oh, my god. Tripp, come on, please, don't--don't kick me out of my own home, okay? Our home. Look, come on, this is--this is hard enough for me. If I don't live here, how am I gonna get to see you?
Limu emu & doug
Jack: Thank you, yes, of course.
[Cheers and applause] Yes. Correct.
Thank you, mr. Deveraux. On another issue, haley chen's deportation has been waived, presumably because of her recent marriage. Your reaction to this, mayor carver?
Abe: Well, haley and tripp dalton have been questioned extensively by ice, and their marriage has been deemed legitimate by a government agency, so I say, let them live in peace.
Jack: Haley chen found an accomplice and gamed the system. Before that, before that, she took advantage of my son. She moved in with him and then she dumped him when things weren't going her way. She's a liar and a user.
Jj: You know damn well haley never took advantage of me.
Sir, there will be time for audience comments and questions later.
Jj: I betrayed her. She fell in love with tripp dalton and married him, and I was their best man. Look, I can assure everyone here that their marriage is 100% legit. If anyone has a fake marriage it's you and your campaign manager.
Mr. Deveraux, may I ask you to take your seat?
Jj: My father only cares about one thing, and that's winning this election, and he'll do whatever he has to do, including hurt innocent people and marry a woman who he doesn't love to get what he wants. Jack deveraux is a total fraud.
Haley: Claire, I am so sorry. I--I--I was desperate.
Claire: You could've kept your mouth shut. Why did you come back into this room at all?
Haley: I'm so sorry.
Claire: Oh, shut up, you are not sorry.
Tripp: Hey, claire, claire, hey, hey, stop, okay? Look, I'm sorry that you're upset and that you're hurting, but... but haley's right.
Claire: Haley's right.
Tripp: Haley did what she had to do and... and now that we're married, I hate to say it more than you know, but... you really shouldn't live here anymore.
Claire: I can't believe this. I--I really can't believe this is happening. Okay. Fine. Fine. I do not wanna live somewhere I'm not wanted, so I'm gonna go and pack my bags right now.
Tripp: No, ple--
Claire: Yeah [Huffs].
Haley: [Sniffles] Ugh.
Eve: Our marriage is legitimate in every way.
Jj: You did it as a publicity stunt.
Jack: Modern families can be very complicated, can't they? Sure we can all agree on that. Also, whatever differences my son and I may have, I can assure you that there's only one fraud in this race, and that is my opponent.
Abe: People may disagree with me on some of the issues, but I've always been upfront about where I stand and who I am.
Jack: Upfront? Excuse me. Upfront? Have you been upfront about the crime wave in this city? Cartel assassins? Kidnapped babies? Where does it end, mr. Mayor? Where does it end? Have you been upfront about your personal life?
Abe: My personal life?
Jack: Yes, yes, your personal life. Mayor carver. Mayor carver insists that he's in a committed relationship with dr. Valerie grant, who moved to washington D.C. Some months ago.
Abe: And she's here today.
Jack: Oh, how convenient. What did you say to convince her to show up and make an appearance?
Valerie: I'm here to support abe because I love him. Yes, we may be miles away, but we are certainly a committed couple.
Jack: Good, good to know. How do you feel about your partner's relationship with his ex-con assistant sheila watkins?
Abe: I have been very open about the fact that I wanted to give my assistant a chance after she served her debt to society.
Jack: But you haven't been quite so open about being romantically involved with her. Isn't that true, mayor carver?
Valerie: Wait, what?
I've always been excited for what's next.
Haley: Well, I--I gotta go or else I'll be late for work, if they take me back.
Tripp: I'm sure they will. And I'M... I'm sorry about claire.
Haley: No, no, I'M... I'm the one who's sorry. I made a huge mess of it. You know what? You know what? Let's call laverne and we'll tell her that we need the rent money, so claire could stay. It's the only way the two of you could be together and--
Tripp: No, no, look, as hard as this is, it's honestly the best way. You heard agent smith. There's gonna be constant monitoring. I mean, we still have to be super careful, right? And claire living here would just be a huge red flag, so...
Haley: God, she totally hates me.
Tripp: No, she doesn't hate you.
Haley: Yeah, she does. She does, and I don't blame her at all.
Tripp: No, claire'S... claire's emotional and dramatic, but in the end, she knows how important this is and we can trust her to do the right thing. Now we just need to give her a little time to cool off. So just try not to worry so much, all right? You just go to work. I'm sure they'll be happy to take you back.
Haley: Yeah, I hope so.
Tripp: Let me know how it goes.
Haley: Okay. Yeah, yeah, I'll, uh, talk to you later.
Eli: Hey, you.
Eli: Hi. Hi. Ah. It's good to see you.
Lani: You too.
Eli: Are you coming back to work?
Lani: Actually, um, I'm gonna take a leave of absence.
Abe: This is absurd. Ms. Watkins and i are not romantically involved.
Jack: You heard it from the man himself. Mayor carver denies having any romantic relationship with his assistant.
Abe: Because there is none. These are baseless accusations.
Valerie: That's right.
Jack: I was hoping you'd say that, because I have proof. Eve, if you'd please do the honors. If everyone would kindly direct your attention to the screen.
