Tripp: Hey. Good morning.
Haley: Good morning to you too. How'd you sleep?
Tripp: Okay. What's that?
Haley: Oh, it's, uh, it's a frame for our wedding picture. I just figured we should have it out, you know, just in case agent smith decides to drop by. But I just, I don't know where the photo is. Do you know where it is?
Tripp: No. No, I-- it's probablaround here somewhere, though.
Will: You're up early.
Sonny: Oh, we startle you?
Claire: What, are you guys spying on me?
Lani: I still can't believe it.
Abe: Hope was almost certain that she could bring back holly safely.
Lani: I tried calling the squad room, but all they would tell me was that something went wrong.
Abe: What did rafe say?
Lani: Nothing, he-- he didn't come home last night.
Abe: He left you there with his baby, without even calling?
Lani: Dad. Today's the election day. Okay? You need to focus on that.
Abe: Holly died a horrible death. How can I not think about it?
[Door handle shuffles]
Eli: I just got off the phone with my mom.
Abe: Is valerie all right?
Eli: You've been hitting on sheila, man. You broke her heart.
[Music plays over stereo]
[Cool guitar music]
Eve: Well, I'm guessing that vote wasn't for your daddy.
Jj: No. I try to vote for candidates who tell me the truth. Kind of rules dad out.
Eve: You know what? Hey. Jj. We don't need your vote anyway, because we kind of have this thing wrapped up.
Jj: Only if the people of salem aren't as smart as they look.
Jj: A two-year-old can see through that smear campaign you're doing on abe. Are you proud of yourself?
Eve: Mm. Are you? You're the one who threw that ancient history with kayla right in your dad's face.
Jj: Ancient history.
Jj: That's how you spin a rape?
Eve: All I know, jj, is you told everybody in this town something very, very private, and you didn't even bother to warn either one of them that you were gonna do it.
Kayla: Hello, jack.
Jack: I had no idea that jj was gonna do that at the debate. So, uh... now you're being bothered by the press?
Kayla: I'm not taking those calls.
Jack: Right. Right. Well, maybe you should just... put it to rest.
Kayla: And how do you suggest I do that, jack?
Jack: You should put out a statement, saying we worked through it, it's in the past. I actually wrote something up. You could just sign it, if you wish.
Kayla: So you could salvage your campaign on election day.
Jack: You're well thought of in this town, kayla. I'm not the clean slate that I hoped I would be, but... if the people hear that you've forgiven me, I think they might forgive me too. Right?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Jj: I wasn't planning on saying a word about dad and kayla.
Jj: But saying that abe-- abe--is guilty of sexual harassment, eve, that was an out-and-out lie. I just--I thought my head was going to explode, I...
Eve: You just couldn't stop yourself from shooting your mouth off about something so private, right? Oh, boy, you knew exactly what you were doing, jj. The thought of you standing up there on your high horse when jack and I were just telling the truth about haley and tripp's fake marriage, it makes my stomach turn.
Jj: You know what makes my stomach turn? Knowing my dad would ruin a young girl's life so he could win an election, to be mayor of salem. Knowing that he married you. You two are a match made in hell.
Kayla: "A regrettable incident occurred during a challenging time in our marriage. It is a matter of public record. Jack and I have no interest in reliving that difficult time. I respect my former husband for doing the hard work necessary to deal with this unfortunate episode, and I bear him no ill will. I hope the voters will understand and forgive him as I have."
Kayla: "A regrettable incident"? "An unfortunate episode"? It sounds like you just backed your car into a tree.
Jack: We did work through our issues.
Kayla: They were your issues, jack. That's why call it rape.
Jack: And you did forgive me, for which I'll be forever grateful.
Kayla: What did-- what did you say here? Um, "I hope the voters will understand and forgive him as I have." This is like a-a-an endorsement. Are you for real? Do you really expect me to release this garbage to the press?
Sonny: Claire, why would we be spying on you?
Claire: I'm sorry. I don't know why I snapped at you guys like that. Um... I'm just so worried about poor little holly.
Sonny: We all are, yeah, it's a horrible tragedy.
Will: Maggie is a wreck.
Claire: She must be. She's holly's grandmother.
Sonny: I think we were up, like, what, 25 times last night checking on ari?
Will: Hey, do you mind, um, can we stop by st. Luke's on the way to vote? I-I'd like to, you know, light a candle or something.
Sonny: Yeah, me too. When do you have to be at the hospital?
Will: I don't know, we got-- we got time.
Claire: Are you having more radiation?
Will: Uh, hopefully not. We're--I'm just getting a scan to see if the tumor has shrunk.
Claire: Okay, well, I am praying for you.
Will: Thank you. Um, well, shall we?
Claire: Tripp. Um... this is a surprise.
Tripp: Yeah, I heard about mrs. Kiriakis' granddaughter. Uh, can you give her these donuts from the pub?
Claire: Oh. Sure.
Tripp: Yeah, I don't really know why she'd want to eat donuts right now, but I-I didn't really know what else to do, and she's always been so nice to me.
Claire: Mm-hmm. Um, I'll go put these in the kitchen.
Tripp: Did I-- did I say something wrong?
Claire: Well, I was hoping that you had come by to see me.
Tripp: That's the other reason I'm here.
Claire: Oh, my god, really? Tripp. Come here, I-I miss you. So much. I-I really do. After what happened yesterday, I-I was so scared that I wouldn't see you again. You know, if you want, we could, um, we could sneak upstairs to my room right now.
Tripp: No, we-- we can't take another chance like that again. I'm sorry.
Claire: Okay, but, I mean, making this marriage to haley look real... must be as hard on you as it is on me, right?
Tripp: That's actually not the reason I'm here.
Claire: Then what?
Tripp: I was actually hoping you could explain this.
Allergies with sinus
congestion and pressure?
Tripp: I found this on the floor, but I couldn't find haley's other half.
Claire: Oh, you think I tore it up?
Tripp: Come on, claire, you're the only person who was at the loft after we got this.
Claire: Yeah, tripp. Yeah, I-I-I lost it for a minute. Okay?
Tripp: I cannot believe you did that.
Claire: Do you have any idea how hard this is for me, to pretend that I am okay with you being married to another woman? Like, do you know how much I hate that sweet little way that haley has of reminding me that I cannot be seen with you at all? And now what? What, we might have to wait three years for her to get a green card?
Tripp: I-I get all that, and I-I know how hard this is for you, but how am I supposed to explain this to haley, or maybe even the ice agent?
Claire: Oh, it's a ripped photograph, for god's sake. It's not like I ripped haley's face in half.
Tripp: Boy, you do hate her, don't you?
Claire: I really don't like her, no. Is that a crime?
Tripp: No, but... it's not good for you to keep all that inside. Your--your grandma's a shrink, so maybe... maybe you should think about setting up a--
Tripp: Few sessions with her. She might be able to help you with some of the problems that you're having.
Claire: Oh, oh, my problems. My problems. Do you think I'm crazy?
Eli: So this is how it's gonna be, huh? Mom's in D.C., So you can just fool around with whoever you want?
Lani: Eli. Calm down. Look, that is not what happened.
Eli: No, I saw the pictures. So did everybody else.
Abe: The pictures are not what they seem to be.
Eli: Really? Then what are they?
Abe: That's between sheila and me. But I am sorry valerie saw that. But it did make us realize that our long-distance relationship isn't working.
Eli: Yeah, well, maybe you should've realized that before you started hitting on my friend.
Abe: That's not what I was doing.
Eli: Man, say whatever you want. But you're gonna lose a lot of votes over this, including mine.
Jack: So, you won't help me out?
Kayla: It took me years to recover and forgive you for what you did, jack. I'm not gonna minimize that so that you can pull this election out of the fire. And take this too.
Jack: You may have just brought your old man down. You happy now?
Limu emu & doug
Jj: I didn't plan on saying anything. I didn't want to do that to kayla, but then you-- you said that crap about abe.
Jack: Right. So it's my fault.
Jj: Did you really try to--try to get kayla to sign something saying she forgives you?
Jack: I did. Yes. Because she did forgive me. People make mistakes. Don't they deserve a second chance?
Jj: Are you giving haley a second chance? No, you can't, can't you? You already got ice watching every move she makes.
Jack: Haley is not a victim. She's smart enough to talk tripp into messing up his life over getting married. And I didn't put ice onto her. They made that call themselves to investigate. I hope the people of salem make the same call when they go to vote today.
Jj: Because haley's your only shot at winning, now that people know you raped your own wife.
Jack: I see the polls have just opened. Anything's possible.
Jj: Man. You are one cold son of a bitch.
Abe: Eli. I'm--I'm asking you to just calm down and-- and listen to me. I-I did not hit on sheila.
Eli: Then what's the deal with the pictures?
Abe: You know, we got off to a rocky start, but we forged a friendship. And there was a moment where we thought maybe it was something more. And we kissed. Once. And we realized that... we were wrong. And unfortunately, that private moment was caught on camera.
Eli: I need to hear sheila's side of the story on this. But unfortunately, I can't find her anywhere.
Abe: She saw the pictures and decided that working for me and living in salem wasn't for her.
Eli: She left town already?
Lani: She wanted to leave quietly, because of the election.
Abe: It was her choice. But what hurts me is that she was forced into it. Jack deveraux made sure that those pictures were taken and publicized.
Kayla: I was gonna call, um, maggie today, but, um, I just was afraid of being an intrusion.
Sonny: Well, sarah's with her. You know, maggie's just-- she's taking it really hard.
Will: Yeah, we all are.
Kayla: What else can you do when a child dies? Um, but, uh, listen. Rex got held up in surgery, and he wanted me to come meet you. Radiology is ready for your scan. So, uh, haley, would you mind, uh, walking will to radiology?
Haley: Uh, sure.
Haley: Um, here are some forms that you guys have to fill out first.
Will: Thank you, I figured.
Kayla: [Chuckles] Sorry.
[Whispering] So, haley.
Haley: [Whispering] Hi.
Kayla: How's it going? How's married life?
Haley: Fake it till you make it, right?
Kayla: You know, I just hate that you and tripp were forced into this.
Haley: I-I'm so grateful to tripp. Ice won't deport me as long as they believe our marriage is real, but I... I won't forget that the person he wants to be with is claire.
Claire: Okay, hold on a minute. I-I give you up so that you can help haley stay in this country, and--and I'm the one with the problems?
Tripp: Please just calm down a little.
Claire: You just called me crazy!
Tripp: No, I didn't, 'cause I don't think that. I know I made the problems that you're having.
Claire: Yes. Damn right.
Tripp: Yes, but you're so full of anger right now, and it kind of scares me. All right, you need to have somebody to talk to.
Claire: Look, I-I agreed to keep my mouth shut about you and haley, all right? That's on me. As for why she couldn't just marry jj, I don't know. But whatever, that's that. You know, I-I also moved out of an apartment that I love, and I am constantly being forced to stuff my feelings, so I am doing the very best job I can!
Tripp: You're right. You're right. You're right. None of this is fair to you, and... and I can't tell you when it's all gonna be over, so... maybe... maybe the best thing for me to do is just to let you go.
Claire: Are you breaking up with me? me wanting to be with haley.
Claire: Really? Then what is it?
Tripp: How am I supposed to ask you to wait for me when I'm married to another woman and you're not even supposed to be in the same room as me? No, no, no, look, you-- you are talented and beautiful, and--and lots of guys would be lucky to even be--
Claire: Oh, I-I don't want any other guys, tripp. I just want you. Listen, if--if you-- if you care about me, at all, you will not do this to me. Okay? Look, I-I don't know how we're gonna make this work. I just know that I cannot lose you.
Tripp: Will you just-- just think about it? Okay, you might change your mind.
Claire: No, I'm not-- I'm not going to.
Tripp: I have to-- I have to get to work.
Claire: No, just come here.
Tripp: Claire. Claire. Look.
Claire: Oh, it--it's fine, okay? Ice wouldn't dare bug pop-pop's house.
Tripp: Take care of yourself, okay?
Claire: [Mouths words] I'm not gonna lose you, tripp. No.
Not to a little bitch like haley.
Jj: Hey, uh, nurse at the desk told me you were in here waiting for a new patient. Oh, no, don't worry. I told her that I brought the guy in this morning. Said I wanted to check on him.
Haley: Thank you. I wish I could vote for mayor carver.
[Both speak at once]
Haley: Don't feel bad about telling your father about me, okay? We're--we're past that.
Jj: I just voted against him. I think after last night, other people are going to do the same thing.
Haley: Did your dad really do that to kayla?
Jj: Yeah. Abe is too much of a gentleman to use it against him. And for some reason, the press didn't write about it, so... I put it out there.
Haley: You look sad.
Jj: Yeah. Don't feel great. But look, if--if what I said was the break abe needed to win, I'll get over it.
Abe: Hey, you know, sheila bought these for me. She called 'em my lucky shoes. And I have a feeling I'm gonna need some luck today.
Eli: You a sneakerhead now?
Abe: You know, I hate you thinking that I treated her badly.
Eli: I'm sorry I went off on you. You still got my vote.
Lani: Now, that is more like it.
Eli: Last thing I want is eve and jack deveraux running this town.
Eve: Hey. What's going on? Aren't you supposed to be out there shaking hands and kissing babies?
Jack: I tried. Fair number of people didn't want to shake my hand, let alone let me kiss their babies. I can only assume it's because of what jj said.
Eve: Did you see kayla? Take it she didn't, uh, sign your statement.
Jack: Did you really think she would?
Eve: I don't know, jack, I mean, it was... worth a try. I mean, we gotta come up with something now. We've gotta do something fast, something that'll hit the news this morning. I just wish that we could prove somehow that haley's marriage is nothing but a business arrangement.
Claire: I could give you that.
Sonny: How was it?
Will: Oh, no big deal.
Sonny: They're taking really good care of you.
Will: I know. I don't know what I would do if you weren't taking care of me. You were so great earlier with arianna when I was zoned out from the radiation. I don't even think she noticed I was feeling weird.
Sonny: She's really smart, though. She already asked, like, what was wrong with maggie, why she was so sad.
Will: Yeah, we're gonna have to tell her about holly. I mean, what the hell do we say?
Sonny: I don't know. Maybe we can ask marlena?
Will: That's a good idea. Oh. Hey. Did the radiologist read my scan? Is my tumor smaller?
- Just like any other family
Kayla: The scan is used to measure the tumor very accurately. We had hoped that the initial dose of radiation would show a marked reduction in its size.
Will: Okay. Did you-- did you see what you wanted to see?
Kayla: I'm sorry, will, but the tumor is the same.
Will: Huh. Um... okay, just-- I mean, can--just give it to me again. Let's do it-- let's just do it... again.
Kayla: Well, we might be able to give another dose, but I need to make a decision with rex and sarah, but I am going to take another look at your biopsy report.
Kayla: You are family, will. And I am gonna know your case backwards and forwards by the end of the day, okay? So don't lose hope.
Sonny: Yeah, and remember, it's not malignant, okay? You--you do not have cancer.
Will: Yes, that is true. But it is pressing on a part of my brain that makes me act very weird sometimes, and I don't like that.
Sonny: Well, I hate to break it to you, but you--you-- kind of always act a little weird every now and then. It's part of your charm.
Eli: You're really good with him.
Lani: Thank you. I know that... you're afraid of me getting too attached. But, eli, I-I'll be fine. And I'll know that I did everything that I could for this little guy who's all alone.
Eli: I love you. You know that, right? I miss you.
Lani: I miss you too. How about... we take turns watching david while we vote?
Eli: [Laughs] Okay. Sounds good.
Lani: My dad has to win. He has to.
Haley: I missed you. I-I owe tripp so much, I do, but, I-I miss-- I miss this.
Haley: I miss being with you.
Jj: I just keep thinking about all the things we'd be doing together if, uh, if you weren't married.
Haley: [Chuckles] You could tell me about all those things, though, right?
Jj: I guess.
[Chuckles] Have you ever been to smith island?
Jack: Do you really have proof that haley married tripp just to stay in the country? Well?
Eve: Uh, you know, jack, you haven't voted yet, so why don't you go do that and I will stay here and talk with claire and then I'll meet up with you later, okay?
Jack: Good. Yes.
Jack: Yes, that sounds like a plan.
Jack: I'll see you soon.
Jack: See you... soon.
Eve: Mm-hmm. So, um, can I get you anything? Water or soda? Anything?
Claire: No, I'm good.
Eve: Do you really have something?
Claire: Well, um...
Tripp: Claire, okay, we've been over and over this, okay? You are my girlfriend. I am your boyfriend. But haley's entire future is at stake here, so we have to really sell our marriage or she'll lose everything she fought so hard for.
Eve: How long have you had that?
Claire: Um, about three or four days.
Eve: Are you kidding me? Oh, my god, why didn't you call me? I mean, jack needs that!
Claire: Okay, well, I need things too, eve. And since you couldn't help me get rid of haley, I had to take matters into my own hands this time.
Eve: Well, what exactly do you need?
Claire: Uh, let's see, I need tripp not to find out that I was a part of getting haley deported. Um, I need tripp not to go to prison for helping haley. The point of this is to get him back full-time, not just on visiting days.
Eve: [Sighs] All right, so... what if we could use that recording and... help jack and protect tripp? What do you say?
Claire: How would you do that?
Eve: Well, you're just gonna have to trust me on that, honey.
Claire: [Laughs] Trust you. I'm sorry, the last time you said you would help me, uh, the recording that we made disappeared.
Eve: Sorry, let's just stay in the here and now, okay? Now, that recording could be the answer to both of our prayers, and I know maybe you're a little nervous about letting that out in public, but I'm not, so if you're afraid, I'm not. All you need to do is give it to me and I'll do it.
Claire: I am not giving you anything until you tell me exactly what you have in mind.
Eve: So? What do you think of the plan?
Claire: Well, I think it's good. And I think you're very sneaky.
Eve: Well, thank you very much. I think jack is gonna make a dynamite mayor and I'm gonna really rock the first lady thing, and you are gonna have tripp all to yourself once haley's out of the picture, okay?
Claire: That is all it would take.
Eve: Yeah. Speaking of all it will take, are you gonna send me that recording? Please? Claire. Come on. Today is the day, and that's all we have, okay? I mean, if we get this out there, it'll be the answer to all of our prayers, so come on. Send it to me.
[Phone beeps] Oh! Thank you.
Eve: You are not going to regret this. Mwah.
[Vocalizing cheerily] Thank you, thank you!
Claire: Oh, god.
Jj: Do you know how to kayak?
Haley: I know I can learn.
Jj: Well, uh, my mom packs an awesome picnic basket.
Jj: So we--yes. So we'd put that and a blanket in a kayak and head over to the island. Once we were there, we'd find the best spot, the best view of the water, spread the blanket out, and... yeah, then we'd hike to the other side of the island.
Haley: Mm. And then we would stuff ourselves on all that lunch?
Jj: Mm. You must've read my mind. And, um, after all that exercise, my mom's fried chicken, probably get pretty sleepy and... take a little nap in the sun.
Haley: But, uh, what if I'm not sleepy?
Jj: Uh, there are other options.
Claire: Wait, tripp, hi. Um, I thought you had to go to work.
Tripp: I'm actually on my break, and I'm glad I ran into you.
Claire: Really? Why?
Tripp: I know I said some pretty upsetting things to you this morning.
Claire: Yeah. Yeah, like the fact that you think I'm a nutjob because I tore a photo in half. I mean, really, ciara is sleeping with a serial killer who tried to burn her alive, and--and you're giving me a hard time.
Tripp: I'm really sorry. Okay? I-I miss being with you so much, but I--but I think that we should both be proud of helping haley.
Haley: You, uh, said something about other options.
Jj: Yeah, we could, uh, pick flowers. You know, if it's a warm spring, there's--there's daffodils all over the island.
Haley: I love daffodils, but...
Jj: Or we could--we could pick fresh strawberries.
Haley: You know what part I really, really like? It's the part where we're laying on the blanket not napping.
Jj: Yeah, me too.
[Knocking on door]
Eve: Haley! Hi! Uh, the nurse said that you might be in here, but she did not mention that you had a guest.
Kayla: Wait a second. How did I miss that before?
Sonny: Look, will, you've only had one treatment. The radiologist said it could be, you know, two or three, so you're getting there.
Will: Yeah. Yes. Right.
Sonny: I think right now, we need to focus on breaking the news about holly to ari. I want her to hear it from us.
Will: What happened to holly?
Sonny: What? You know what happened. The accident?
Will: What? No, I've--I have no idea what you're talking about.
Claire: You're right. How could we ever be happy together when haley's getting screwed over?
Tripp: Well, we can both be happy we're doing the right thing. Even if we have to wait a long time to be together again.
Claire: Love's supposed to be patient, right?
Tripp: Well, at least in the first corinthians.
Claire: I can be patient. You'll see.
Jj: I was just waiting to see a new patient I brought in this morning.
Haley: Right, he's, uh, he's still getting admitted.
Eve: Hmm. Must be nice to have your old job back.
Haley: Yeah, I was-- I was lucky. Kayla went to bat for me.
Eve: Yeah, kayla's like that. She, you know, she does that for people that she believes in. Like her stepson, you know, that guy you're married to now.
Haley: Yeah, there's no reason at all that I can't work here now that I've applied for a green card.
Eve: Yeah, since you just happened to fall so deeply in love with tripp, and just the right time, right?
Jj: That's what happened. She's crazy about my cousin.
Eve: Mm. Mm-hmm.
Haley: Yeah, tripp and i are very, very happy.
Eve: Really? Wow, you know, that kinda surprises me. Um... here.
Tripp: Claire, okay, we've been over and over this, okay? You are my girlfriend. I am your boyfriend. Haley's entire future is at stake here, so we have to really sell our marriage or she'll lose everything she fought so hard for.
Eve: See what I mean?
Got time for a question, mr. Mayor?
Abe: Oh, sure, andy.
Why isn't, uh, dr. Grant here today?
Jack: I was wondering the same thing myself.
Abe: Well, valerie lives and works in washington, D.C.
Jack: Yes, but she was here last night, wasn't she, for the debate? Although that was before the photos ran, right? The ones of you kissing your assistant? Did dr. Grant have a problem with that?
Abe: Valerie and i reached the sad conclusion that a long-distance relationship wasn't what either one of us wanted.
Jack: Or was it the close relationship with you and sheila?
Abe: I wouldn't push this, jack, given your history with women. Maybe you don't remember the details. I do.
Is mrs. Deveraux upset about what your son said last night?
Jack: Um, uh, eve is... very proud of me. She knows that that was a long, long time ago, and, uh, she couldn't wait to vote. She's probably in the booths right now voting as we speak.
Good luck today.
Jack: Thank you, andy. Thank you. Thanks for that.
Jennifer, I thought... I thought that you were in paris with abigail.
Jennifer: I was. But now I'm back.
