Brady: Look, this ends now. Nicole just lost her child. She is raw. Even you can see that. Let this go.
Xander: I'm not a monster, brady. I can feel her pain.
Brady: Then prove it and give me the recording.
Xander: Okay, but I'm gonna need something from you in return.
Brady: What do you want?
Xander: If I give you this recording, give me your job. Make me ceo of titan.
Nicole: What are you doing here?
Sarah: Eric told me that you guys had a fight, and--and I just didn't think that you should be alone. Can I come in?
[Gentle piano music]
Sarah: Are you okay?
Nicole: I didn't think anything could be more painful than losing the two babies i never got to know, wondering about who they would have been or the life they could have led.
Sarah: This is so much worse.
Nicole: And now I'm grieving everything, the past, the future, the time I lost with holly. I'm never gonna get that back.
Sarah: God, I'm so sorry.
Nicole: And now when--when-- when I think about the night that I came back, I could have gone straight to holly, but instead, I stayed with eric.
Sarah: No, no, no, no. You can't do that to yourself.
Nicole: No, I fought so hard to get back here. And I never got to see my daughter until she was lying under a sheet dead.
[Knock at door]
Marlena: [Sobbing] I'm so sorry about holly.
Eric: It still doesn't feel real.
Marlena: I know. I know.
Eric: You know, when nicole, when she was trapped in that building, I couldn't get to her, I re-lived that nightmare for months.
Marlena: Well, that nightmare is over now. Nicole is alive.
Eric: No, you don't understand, ma--
Marlena: What I know is that...losing holly is an unspeakable loss. But nicole is alive, and she's going to need you to help her get through this time.
Eric: No, mom, you don't understand. The best day of my life turned into the worst one ever.
Chloe: Okay, thank you very much. Bye.
Stefan: Hey, who was that?
Chloe: It was the funeral home about arrangements for holly.
Stefan: I thought nicole was taking care of that.
Chloe: Yeah, but they need a--a dress for her to be buried in, even though it's gonna be a closed casket, because...
Chloe: I just bought her a new dress last week. She was gonna wear it to her preschool moving up ceremony, and she was so excited. She said she felt like a princess.
Stefan: Come here.
Gabi: I didn't meant to interrupt. I'm so sorry.
Stefan: Gabi, what the hell are you doing here?
Gabi: Did you forget? We have some unfinished business.
Sonny: It's like holly's accident was completely wiped from will's memory.
Rex: But you did talk about it, right?
Sonny: Yeah, we--for hours.
Rex: Well, how long did this memory lapse last?
Will: Maybe a minute or two, and then little by little, i started remembering again.
Rex: Okay, well, I mean, that's not uncommon for someone with a tumor like yours.
Will: Hmm. Rex, I--I know the radiation didn't shrink my tumor, but is it growing? Is that why my symptoms are getting worse? What is happening to me?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Rex: Well, I--I can't imagine what you're going through. I'm sure it's very scary. But a side effect of radiation is cell death. And with that comes associated swelling and then temporary, noticeable symptoms.
Will: You didn't answer my question. Is my tumor growing? Is "swelling" the same as "growing"?
Rex: No, it's not. There's no evidence of tumor growth.
Will: Okay, yeah, I swear if I lose my memory again, i don'T...
Sonny: Will, you just have to take one step at a time.
Will: No, no, that is one thing that I'm not gonna be able to handle.
Rex: Okay, look, look, brief, short-term memory loss is very different from what you experienced in memphis. And you're not gonna forget who you are. You're not gonna forget sonny.
Sonny: You better not.
Rex: Look, buddy, go home, get some rest, and hopefully we'll see some improvements very soon.
Will: And if we don't?
Rex: We'll go to plan B. Just hang in there, okay?
Will: He's not telling us how bad it really is.
Sonny: Will, you're making negative assumptions, okay? That's not gonna help. All right, why--why would a doctor not be honest with you?
Will: Oh, god. What is it?
Marlena: Oh, honey. Nicole is half out of her mind with grief. She's mourning the loss of a child. Anger is what happens in situations like this. She's just lashing out at everybody that she cares about. This will pass.
Eric: Yeah, well, I'm not so sure about that.
Marlena: I am. Give her some time. Give her some space. Just make sure that you're there when she needs you.
Eric: Yeah, well, what if she never needs me?
Marlena: She will. She loves you. And she understands that you really wanted what was best for holly.
Eric: Oh, and nicole doesn't know that, and please stop pretending that I'm so innocent in this.
Marlena: You are innocent in--
Eric: No, I'm not. I'm a big reason why holly's dead. Why would nicole ever forgive me? Because I'm not sure I can even forgive myself.
Sarah: You okay? I mean, can I get you anything? Is there anything I can do?
Sarah: You sure?
Nicole: You know, to be honest, what I needed you to do, what I needed someone-- anyone to do--was keep daughter safe.
Sarah: Nicole, you know how much I loved holly. She was my niece.
Nicole: You all failed her, chloe, eric, your family. No one protected her, my only child. She was the light of my life. She was my life. I never thought I'd be blessed with a child with all the longing and the pain and the loss, but then there she was, my...my little miracle, my holly. And to think that she was taken from this earth so soon. And when it did end for her, she was terrified, and it didn't have to happen, and it happened, because no one cared enough to protect her.
Sarah: No, it's not that no one cared.
Nicole: Oh, you know what? For god sakes stop defending the indefensible, because brady was the only one sounding the alarm, and no one listened to him. No one listened to him, and guess what. My daughter is dead.
Brady: You want me to hand over the ceo job to you?
Xander: Mm, don't act so surprised. You've always known I wanted it. Besides, don't you want to go out on your own terms before uncle victor decides to fire you again?
Brady: He's not firing me, xander.
Xander: Oh, really? Then why did he bring kate back into the company? You and I both know that's the beginning of the end for you, right?
Brady: Look, even if I wanted to hand you the ceo job, i couldn't do it, because I don't appoint my successor.
Xander: Why not? Aren't you the boss?
Brady: I am the boss, but victor is still the chairman of the board. He appoints the ceo, and he despises you, which means this is not gonna work out for you.
Xander: Oh, no. Well, I guess that means nicole will go to prison for murder. And it will all be on your head.
Xander: But maybe you don't care if nicole goes to prison. Maybe you're not done punishing her... for choosing your brother over you.
Brady: The woman just lost her daughter, xander. I mean, what kind of bastard are you anyway?
Xander: The kind that sees all this tragedy as an opportunity.
Brady: Get out of here.
Xander: Fine. Well, at least the salem pd will finally solve the case. I'll just go give this to them.
Brady: Wait. Hold on.
Eric: Brady urged for me to fight for holly, to keep her out of danger she might be exposed to when she was with chloe and stefan.
Marlena: Honey, she'd already been through so many battles. Why would you want to put her through one more?
Eric: Well, what if i dismissed brady, what he was thinking, you know, because I was too obsessed that he had an ulterior motive?
Marlena: No. You have always wanted what was best for holly. I mean, you told me how happy she was to be with parker, how much she loved being part of the family.
Eric: But happy and safe are not the same thing.
Marlena: You did the best you could based on the information that you had at the time.
Eric: Did I?
Marlena: Yes, you did. How do I get through to you on this? This is not your fault. In your heart, I think you know that. In her heart, nicole knows that.
Eric: Yeah, but she doesn't think that. Mom, she was angry. She's feels that everyone-- everyone let her down, everyone except for brady.
Marlena: Should I talk to her?
Marlena: Maybe I could help.
Eric: Mom, no. Sarah already offered to do that, and I told her not to.
Eric: Because I don't want to cause nicole any more pain.
Sarah: We all made mistakes. We all could have been more attentive. There are so many things that i wish I would have done to keep holly safe, but believe me when I tell you that I would have moved heaven and earth to save her.
Nicole: Stop. "I would have done this. I would have done that. I would have moved heaven and earth." Who cares? You didn't do a damn thing, and no one else did either.
Sarah: We--we tried.
Sarah: Especially eric.
Nicole: Oh, yeah. Eric gave her away.
Sarah: He agonized over that decision, and chloe convinced him that she could give holly a good home.
Marlena: At the dimera mansion, while a drug cartel was pursuing chloe.
Sarah: And when eric found that out, he wanted to go straight there and take holly, but we all decided that stefan was the best person to keep them all safe.
Nicole: No, you all decided. I heard all the pathetic excuses from eric. Did you come here to plead his case?
Sarah: No, of course not. Actually, he asked--he asked me not to come.
Nicole: But you did anyway. Why? Why is how I feel about eric so important to you?
Stefan: Work will have to wait. We have more important things to deal with right now.
Chloe: You know what? No. It's okay. You guys talk business. I need to get out of the house anyway.
Stefan: Where are you going? I can take you.
Chloe: I'm gonna go to work, doug's place.
Stefan: Okay, why don't you let me drive you?
Chloe: No, it's okay. I'll be fine. I think I might have left one of holly's stuffed animals there, and I want her to be buried with it, so...
Stefan: All right, let me know if you can't find it. I'll have the staff turn the place upside down.
Chloe: Thank you.
Gabi: Chloe, I'm really sorry. She was a very sweet girl.
Chloe: Yeah, she was.
Stefan: What the hell are you doing here, huh? We don't have any unfinished business.
Gabi: Oh, yes, we do.
Stefan: No, we can't do this.
Stefan: We agreed we wouldn't again.
Gabi: Yes, and I--I couldn't resist, and I don't think you want me to.
Stefan: It's wrong. It's inappropriate.
Gabi: Well, I think that's what makes it so great, no emotions, no strings attached, no feelings, and we don't even like each other.
Stefan: You are a master of understatement. We loathe and detest each other with every cell in our respective beings.
Gabi: That too.
Stefan: Brady almost caught us last night.
Gabi: Okay, but he didn'T.
Stefan: What if chloe had found out?
Gabi: Who cares? I mean, she's not your girlfriend.
Stefan: She's devastated from losing holly. I can't do that to her.
Gabi: What do you owe her? I mean, you've had one date, and in that date, her daughter was kidnapped and then later killed. I mean, I think you guys are off to a great start.
Stefan: Shut the hell up.
Gabi: Do you think that she's ever gonna forget that? Any time you guys are together, it's always gonna be on her mind.
Stefan: You don't know that.
Gabi: What about you?
Stefan: What about me?
Gabi: Well, I mean, you care about holly too, right? Don't you need some comfort?
Gabi: What's wrong? What? Why are you stopping?
[Gentle piano music]
Stefan: I can't do this. Not now or ever again.
Will: What's going on?
Kayla: I have been spending some time with your file.
Sonny: And what--what does that mean exactly?
Kayla: Well, given the failure of the first radiation treatment to shrink your tumor, I wanted to work on refining your treatment plan, so I asked a pathologist to send me over the biopsy results so that I could go over them myself and make sure that the diagnosis was accurate.
Will: Are you saying that i might have cancer after--
Kayla: No, no, no, absolutely not. The tumor is benign.
Sonny: Okay, but you are saying there--there's something that was missed.
Kayla: No, not missed exactly, but the pathologist did have trouble classifying this particular subtype of tumor. He said it was nothing he'd ever seen before.
Will: So I have a unique tumor.
Kayla: The tissues contained traces of a very rare chemical compound that I have only seen once before.
Sonny: And when was that?
Kayla: The compound was in the serum that you took to get your memory back.
Seresto, seresto, seresto.
Will: Are you saying that the drug I took to get my memory back gave me the brain tumor?
Kayla: I can't say definitively, and I don't know if we ever will be able to, but with any experimental drug, there would be unforeseen side effects.
Sonny: Side effects? What's the bottom line here, please? If this drug caused the tumor, then what does that mean for will's treatments?
Kayla: It's just possible that this tumor will be more resistant to conventional treatments, and, I mean, we could be dealing with an unknown quantity.
Will: So you don't know what to do.
Kayla: Not yet, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
Will: Oh, my god. It's almost funny that the drug I took to get my memory back is now causing me to lose my memory.
Xander: You've reconsidered my offer?
Brady: I have one of my own, one that I think we could both live with.
Xander: I'm listening.
Brady: I will buy the recording from you. You can name your price. You can take the money. You can establish your own company. You'll finally be out from under victor's thumb. You can do whatever you want. And you'll be able to prove to victor your true value.
Xander: You want to fund my own company.
Brady: Yeah, name your price.
Xander: There is none.
Brady: There's always a price. What is it?
Xander: I don't expect you to understand this, brady, but this isn't about money for me. What I want is the respect my family owes me, so you can take your checkbook and shove it.
Brady: Well, all right. Hold on. I hear you. I cannot offer you the ceo position, obviously, but I can offer you a position in titan. I don't need victor's approval for that.
Xander: Just like last time when you offered to stick me in janitorial with a mop?
Brady: No, this would be an executive position, xander, a good one, on that would actually give you power.
Xander: Would you really give me that?
Brady: In exchange for nicole's freedom, yes, I would. But this is the best offer you're going to get. You take it or leave it.
Marlena: Sarah offered to speak to nicole on your behalf?
Eric: Yes, she did.
Marlena: Well, that must have been very difficult for her.
Eric: Mom, it's difficult for everyone.
Marlena: Yeah, you know, i spoke to sarah. I know that the two of you were planning to tell rex how you felt about each other, and that was when nicole came back.
Eric: Yeah, yeah.
Marlena: I'm so sorry that i accidentally told sarah that you had feelings for her. I just--I thought--
Eric: Thought she knew. I understand. You know what, mom? It--it doesn't matter anymore.
Marlena: It does matter. And we don't have to get into it right now. But at some point we will have to get into what was going on before we lost holly.
Eric: You mean with sarah and me.
Marlena: You've had feelings for her for a long time.
Eric: But nicole's the love of my life.
Marlena: I know that, but it doesn't mean that your feelings for sarah just go away because nicole comes back. Nicole was pushing you away.
Eric: Mom, what are you trying to say? You're saying that I should let go? Is that what you're... you're saying that I should let go of nicole and be with sarah?
Nicole: Eric, let this happen. I counted on him, and he let this happen.
Sarah: You need the support of the people you love right now, and I hate to see you pushing us away, especially eric.
Nicole: Since when did you two become so close?
Sarah: Well, I--I was there for him when he thought that you had died, and...and i watched him suffer, and i watched him agonize over how to break the news to holly. He spent every minute of the day trying to do what he thought was best for her, what he thought you would want him to do.
Nicole: So you spent a lot of time together.
Sarah: We're good friends.
Nicole: Since when? Did you bond over my death?
Sarah: What are you asking me?
Nicole: When I came back, i expected to see holly and eric in the apartment. And instead, he came back with you... looking very cozy now that I think about it. And now here you are giving him a very impassioned defense. Is there something going on between the two of you?
Now you can make
any morning of the week
Marlena: Please don't misunderstand. I'm not saying that you should-- you should give up on nicole. I'm just saying that you should be really honest about your feelings and that sarah should too.
Eric: We were honest. What's with the look?
Marlena: I'm wondering if you know that sarah has decided to go ahead and marry rex.
Eric: I heard. It's a decision for her to make.
Marlena: Well, you see, I'm concerned, because I suspect that she's made that decision because she can't be with you.
Eric: Mom, I don't want to get into this right now.
Eric: I'm counting on your discretion.
Sarah: Of course there's nothing going on between eric and me.
Nicole: Are you sure?
Sarah: If I had feelings for eric, why would I be here trying to get you to forgive him?
Nicole: I don't know. Maybe because you have a guilty conscience. Maybe you don't want your fiancÚ to know how you really feel.
Sarah: I'm here as a friend to both of you.
Nicole: Okay. Whatever you say. But if you're settling for rex because you think you can't have eric, you should reconsider, because as far as I'm concerned, eric is all yours.
Stefan: This was holly'S.
[Clears throat] It must be what chloe was looking for, the one that she wants holly to be buried with.
Gabi: I can't even imagine what chloe's going through or nicole. I mean, if I'd had to bury my daughter, you'd have to put me in the grave beside her.
Stefan: Chloe will get through this. She's strong.
Gabi: I know you were really attached to holly.
Stefan: I was. She filled some of the void that was there when I found out charlotte wasn't my daughter.
Gabi: Right. This must be pretty hard for you.
Gabi: I--I'm just saying that after the funeral I know you'll be expected to comfort chloe, but... who's gonna comfort you?
Stefan: [Sighs] Is that an offer?
Gabi: It is.
Stefan: Mm. What the hell are you up to, gabi?
Born to be wild
Kayla: Although we can't be sure that the drug caused the tumor, it seems likely. If I could just get my hands on the chemical formula of the drug, then, you know, might be able to help with the treatment.
Sonny: And it's gone for good?
Kayla: Well, the fda confiscated whatever was left, and seth burns somehow lost dr. Rolf's original diary.
Sonny: And how would having it help?
Kayla: We could resynthesize the drug, and it might be able to give us some kind of insight in treatment.
Will: You don't think radiation is gonna work, do you?
Kayla: I'm not saying that. I'm just saying that we need all the tools in our arsenal.
Sonny: We're gonna keep fighting, will.
Kayla: Exactly, and that really is the most important weapon. It's you, your strength, your will to live, and everything you have to live for.
Marlena: I will never say anything to nicole about your feelings for sarah.
Eric: That's what you said last time.
Marlena: I know. But it will not happen again. I promise. I think we all have to be careful about making any rash decisions.
Eric: There is nothing rash about me deciding that I want to be with nicole.
Marlena: I understand. You know, I was in the same position at one point when roman came back, and i thought I could just brush aside my feelings for john. I tried. It hurt everybody that I loved the most.
Eric: I hear you. All I can think about right now is how much pain nicole is in and how much that I want to be there for her.
Marlena: I know. And you will. Mmm.
Sarah: I don't want eric. I love rex.
Nicole: Again I ask you, are you sure?
Sarah: I understand that you're angry, and I understand that you don't trust me or anyone else.
Nicole: Mm-mm. I trust brady.
Sarah: You're emotionally raw right now.
Nicole: Right now? I will always be emotionally raw. I lost daniel, and now our daughter is dead. She's dead, because the people i relied on failed her, and I will never forgive any of you, especially eric. And you go ahead and send him that message. And get out.
Sarah: Nicole, I--
Nicole: Don't make me.
Xander: I have no desire to be your underling.
Brady: If you do a good job, you'll finally prove yourself to victor. And hell, maybe even one day when I'm done, the company will be yours to run.
Xander: You can't promise that.
Brady: You're right, I can't promise that, but what I can promise is, this is the best offer you're going to get. Take it or leave it.
Xander: I want an office with a window.
Brady: [Scoffs] I figured you would.
Xander: And a company car.
Brady: So you will take it.
Xander: I'll take it.
Brady: Good. Good. So give me the recording.
[Chuckles] When I get my contract ironclad with all the perks and terms I desire, then you will get this recording. Until then, it stays with me.
Feel the clarity of
Gabi: What do you mean, what am I up to?
Stefan: Every time I turn around, you're on my doorstep on the pretext of doing business, and the next thing i know, you're trying to get me into bed.
Gabi: I wouldn't say that.
Stefan: What would you say?
Gabi: Well, I would say that we're just two people who are drawn to each other. I mean, what's so suspicious about that? You think you're not attractive enough that somebody would want to be with you?
Stefan: You despise me.
Gabi: Never denied that.
Stefan: You suggested that we have this hate sex as a way to get it out of our systems. You know what? You're out of my system.
Gabi: Am I?
Gabi: 'Cause it doesn't seem to take much to get your attention.
Stefan: You know, I'm not doing this. I'm not doing this to chloe.
Stefan: I'm going to the club to check on her you can show yourself out.
Gabi: What are you looking at? Your son stole my freedom, separated me from my daughter. He will not dismiss me now. I swear to you, everything in this mansion will be mine. I will get what I deserve. And so will stefan.
[Knock at door]
Sarah: Hi. I came to say I'm sorry.
Eric: For what?
Sarah: I went against your wishes, and I went to nicole to speak to her on your behalf.
Sarah: I know. I know, and I feel awful. Because I thought that I could make it better, but I'm afraid that I just made it worse.
Nicole: What happened with xander?
Brady: Well, I made a deal with him. He's gonna turn over the recording.
Nicole: How'd you get him to do that?
Brady: It doesn't matter. Details don't matter. What matters is, he's not gonna hurt you again. I made sure of it.
Nicole: Thank you, brady.
Brady: You're welcome.
Nicole: Thank you for being the only person I can count on.
Will: You know, I thought taking the serum was worth the risk to get my memory back. What if the price I pay is losing my life?
Sonny: Well, that is not gonna happen.
Will: I can't believe that rolf's diary just went missing from seth burns' office. What could have happened to it?
Xander: Well, I'd better lock this up for safekeeping just in case brady decides to put his grubby little mitts on it. I'll just put you in here with the rest of my handy little treasures.
