Provided By Suzanne

Victor: [Groans] How the Hell did that happen?

Kate: Are you referring to the mess you made at Titan?

Victor: What the Hell are you talking about? What mess at Titan?

Kate: Oh, come on. Don't pretend that you didn't hire your nephew xander to a high executive position.

Victor: I wouldn't put that neanderthal in charge of taking out the garbage.

Brady: It was me. I did it.

[Melancholy music]

[Easygoing guitar music]

Xander: Someone so gorgeous should not be eating alone.

Sarah: [Sighs] You stink.

Xander: Not a fan of my patchouli body spray?

Sarah: It's disgusting, but i was talking about you in general. Go away.

Xander: Oh, you're gonna want me to stick around when you hear my news.

Sarah: And I've lost my appetite.

Xander: My ship has come in, and I'm giving you permission to board.

Sarah: I'd rather drown.

Xander: Then I would simply dive overboard and rescue you. I'm happy to wait. Sooner or later, you're going to realize what a catch I am.

Sarah: How many times do i have to tell you that I'm engaged?

Xander: So? I'm married. I won't tell if you don'T.

Sarah: [Sighs]

[Disquieting music]

Stefan: The way you're staring at my father's portrait--holly used to do the same exact thing.

[Dramatic music]

Haley: Do you know what you just did?

Jj: Shoving tripp into that agent and getting you out of there was the most fun I've had in a long time.

Haley: I can't let you do this.

Jj: Okay, if we stand here and argue, they will catch up with us. Haley, they will deport you to china and I'll never see you again.

Haley: Okay.

[Melinda breathes raggedly]

Jennifer: Melinda?

[Disquieting music]

What are you doing?

Melinda: I'm going to jack deveraux's victory celebration to make sure that he and his lovely bride pay for what they did to haley.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."

[Soft orchestration]

[Poignant music]

Stefan: Holly used to think that he was santa claus dressed up in regular clothes, and that he was always watching to see if she was being good or bad.

Nicole: I can't imagine anyone confusing that old bastard with santa claus, not even a small child.

Stefan: I haven't yet met the man.

Nicole: I have.

Stefan: How well do you know him?

Nicole: Let's just say we had a complicated relationship.

You know, the way you talk about holly, it sounds like you cared about her.

Stefan: Yeah, she was a beautiful little girl. She brought joy into the lives of everyone around her. I'm really glad you're here, nicole.

Nicole: Why?

Stefan: Because nobody loved holly more than you and chloe. You two need each other right now.

[Jaunty music]

Victor: I'm going to give you time to explain why you let that bloodsucking leech have permission to destroy our company. Then I'm going to double my blood pressure medication.

Brady: Kate, this is between me and the chairman of the board, please.

Kate: It's really unbelievable, but I think that you have set a new record for screwing things up. You should really think about putting me in charge before he destroys titan.

Brady: [Sighs] Are you two finished?

Victor: No, and I don't have to think about it. I have half a mind to just do it.

Sarah: Will you get out of here and leave me alone?

Xander: Talking's not really our event, is it? I feel that we bring the best out of each other when we keep it nonverbal. So, um... fancy another go?

Sarah: I'd rather stick needles in my eyes.

Xander: Oh, be fair. Remember how much you loved it last time? You couldn't get enough of me!


[Energetic music]

Things are bad.

Eric: Come on, get up. Come on.

Xander: As much as I would love to stay and mop up the floor with you, eric, I have a rather important business meeting to attend, and I need to keep my focus. You'll, uh, come around eventually. They all do.

[Jaunty music]

Brady: I want to talk to my grandfather alone.

Kate: You do that. I have some phone calls to make, but I'm going to be close by in case you need my input.

Brady: Input this: Stay gone.

[Uneasy synth music]

Victor: Xander failed as a gardener. Couldn't spread manure without getting it all over himself. And you hired him as what?

Brady: Granddad, I offered him an executive position under certain conditions.

Victor: What conditions?

Brady: [Sighs] That he hand over the recording of nicole's confession. Granddad, she just lost her daughter. I'm not gonna see her go to prison for murdering a scum like deimos.

Victor: There must have been some other way to make that deal.

Brady: I offered him an executive position under me. When he showed up, he wanted-- he wanted my job, granddad.

Victor: Well, you should've just thrown him out.

Brady: You know, when titan was on the skids and you begged me to come back as ceo, you agreed that you would not question my handling of the company.

Victor: I don't remember agreeing to any such thing.

Brady: I do, and you need to back off and let me handle this my way.

Stefan: Uh, I'm gonna give you two some space.

[Tense synth music]

Chloe: Nicole... I don't even have the words to tell you how sorry I am.

Nicole: I just came from the funeral home, and they showed me the clothes that you sent for holly to be buried in. Do you really think some pretty little dress is gonna make up for getting my daughter murdered?

Haley: We're safe here?

Jj: There weren't any security cameras in the lobby, and I paid cash up front so the desk clerk wouldn't ask for id.

Haley: It's really good to be with an ex-cop when you're on the run from the cops, but what you did when you got me away from that ice agent-- my god, jj, you broke a lot of laws.

Jj: Yeah, and I'd do it again.

Haley: I am not letting you go to jail because of me. Okay? I don't want anybody who's tried to help me--I don't want this to come back on any of them, and jj, why do-- why do you think I told press that I talked tripp into marrying me?

Jj: Maybe we're not in as much trouble as we think we are.

Haley: Well, we better turn on this tv and find out.

[News fanfare]

Anchor: Let's get up to speed on the top stories. Today is the one-year anniversary of the terrorist bombings...

Jennifer: Melinda, i understand that--that you are furious, and you must--

Melinda: I am more than furious, damn it! Jack and eve made an issue out of haley to win an election, and now they're going to have to answer to me.

Jennifer: Okay, and i understand that--that you want to scare them, and I'm so mad that this is happening to your sister.

Melinda: She is not my sister!

Jennifer: What do you mean?

Melinda: She is my daughter, and I want to do more than just scare them. I want them both dead. (Announcer) do you push through migraine?

Anchor: All these promises--

Jj: I can't believe it.

Haley: Neither can I.

Jj: How could my dad have won that election?

Haley: He was probably voted in by all the people who wanted me deported.

Jj: Sons of bitches, and my father the biggest one of them all. H--I'm--I'm being selfish.

Haley: How?

Jj: I made the decision to run tonight, and it's your life. I--but haley, you worked so damn hard to get that life, and it made me sick to see it stolen from you by my father and his idiot followers. When that agent started to take you away, I, um... I lost it. I'm sorry.

Haley: No. No, don't be. Don't be sorry. Do you know how lucky I feel to have you in my corner?

[Poignant music]

Jj: What? What? What?

Haley: Oh, I just... now that we're here, and it's quiet, it just hit me again. Melinda's not my sister. She's my mom.

Jennifer: My gosh, you must be aching to tell this story, but why don't you put the gun away and just talk to me? Please.

[Melancholy music]

Melinda: I was raised to strive for perfection, and the way to get there was through a sense of shame.

Jennifer: Yeah. I know that shame can be very destructive.

Melinda: Not where I come from. It's what molds you. I was 17 when I got pregnant, and I knew that I had dishonored my family and myself. My father was not supportive or helpful. He threatened to throw me out, but my mother lied for me. She made an announcement that she was pregnant, so my father had no choice but to accept the news. I went away when it came time to give birth, and then I handed my baby daughter to my mother, and I left the country.

Jennifer: I can't even imagine how painful that was for you.

Melinda: I had too much shame for abandoning her, so I just sh--I shut it down, and I just kept my distance, and I watched as she got her-- her job at the hospital, her first job, and as she became a respected member of the staff.

Jennifer: Yes, and she has built such a fine life for herself, melinda.

Melinda: Until jack and eve ruined it all. I have dishonored myself. My career is over, and I have nothing left to lose, so I'm gonna start acting like a real mother. I'm gonna do whatever it takes to help my daughter.

Chloe: I loved holly. I did everything I could to protect her and help her grow up happy and strong.

Nicole: Yeah, well, maybe you should've helped her stay alive. You could have taken her out of this hellhole and put her somewhere safe.

Chloe: I thought this w--

Nicole: Well, you thought what? That you could put on a push-up bra, look helpless, and land stefan dimera, and you used my daughter as part of your plan?

Chloe: That's not true!

Nicole: Well, holly doesn't need your help anymore. She's beyond help because of you. Thanks for nothing.

Chloe: [Cries]

Eric: You okay?

Sarah: You don't have to come to my rescue. Besides, I'm the one that brought this on myself.

Eric: No, not your fault.

Sarah: [Laughs] Why not? I'm the one that slept with the guy.

Eric: Yeah, well, we all do things that we regret.

Sarah: I regret going and talking to nicole after you told me not to. I just made everything worse.

Eric: Couldn't be any worse.

Sarah: I really did think that I could help. I really thought I could make her understand how much that you loved holly, but instead, I... ended up giving her the impression that there's something going on between you and me, which is ridiculous.

Xander: Where's my contract?

Brady: [Sighs]

[Uneasy drum music]

Xander: What's this?

Brady: Oh, um, that portion is, uh, divorce papers.

Xander: Excuse me?

Brady: Xander, in exchange for guaranteed employment at the stated terms, with your perks and all your salary, you're not only gonna hand over the recording of nicole's confession, you will also end your marriage with her.

Xander: Oh, darling. I'm so glad you're here, because it'll save me from saying this twice: There's no bloody way I'm ever letting go of her.

Kate: [Zips purse] Is brady gone?

Victor: Right.

Kate: Did he give you a reason for hiring xander?

Victor: Yeah.

Kate: Well, this should be interesting, since I cannot come up with one single rationale why you would ever let that particular fox into this particular henhouse.

Brady: Do you want the job or not?

Xander: You changed the terms.

Brady: I'm giving you everything you want, xander. You want to get back into victor's good graces, you want to prove that you're valuable to the company. All I ask in return is the recording and that you end your marriage to nicole, and I am not budging on that. Okay?

Xander: Try not to take this personally, love, but business is business, and we'll always have nashville.

Brady: Oh, oh, oh. Hold on, hold on. I'm going to need that recording.

Xander: Of course.

Brady: Yeah, yeah. I trust that this is the only recording, right? There's no copies lying around?

Xander: This is the one and only.

Brady: Okay, good. 'Cause it would be pretty stupid to lie to me at this point. Remember, I'm your only connection. If you cross me on this, I will fix it so you never get into the company or the family, even if you come crawling on your knees.

Xander: Oh, I would never even think of crossing you, the bloke who made the recording that got me everything that i want, including a suite at the kiriakis mansion, right?

Brady: Sure. Whatever you want.

Victor: You'll make it happen.

Brady: I will make it happen.

Xander: Excellent.

[Melancholy music]

Brady: [Breathes deeply] I will destroy this as soon as i get it home.

Nicole: Brady. Would you mind if I did that myself? I have been under that animal's thumb for way too long.

Brady: Because of me. Here.

Nicole: No, brady, not because of you. Now look, that's all in the past. You looked after holly, and now you're looking after me in the worst time of my life. I mean, I can't believe I was so stupid, to--to want eric. Brady, you have always been the only one I could ever count on.

[Disquieting guitar music]

Haley: All these years, I've been panicking about losing my future, and now, how am i supposed to deal with the idea that my--my past was all a lie?

Jj: I'm so sorry, haley.

Haley: My--my sister is my mother, my mom is my grandma, and I don't even know who my dad is. [Sighs]

Jj: All I can think of to say is that your grandmother and grandfather must've really loved you.

Haley: Part of me feels so blown away by all of this, and yet another part of me feels like... everything is starting to come together. I mean, knowing who you are is knowing where you came from.

Jj: It's no wonder melinda was so weird about you.

Haley: Just the way she-- the way she acted, I felt like she hated me. Jj, how can i accept her as my mother?

[Dramatic music]

Melinda: I'm tired of talking. I have to get to that party.

Jennifer: Melinda, please. I'm begging you, please don't do this!

Melinda: I have had to stand by and watch as jack and eve ruined my child's life! You don't know what that's like. You have always been there to stand up for your children. For once, I'm gonna do that for my daughter.

Jennifer: Okay, but do you think that killing jack and eve is standing up for haley? My gosh, you're a lawyer. You have the skills to help her fight this battle!

Melinda: That could take years. I couldn't stop the hateful people of this town from voting for your disgusting ex-husband, but I can make sure that he never gets sworn in.

[Tender music]

Haley: I just put something together. When I was about eight, I found this--this beautiful hand-knitted baby blanket. It was hidden in the back of a closet, and... I figured that my mom must have made it for me, and put it away when I got too old for it, but... I took that thing out all the time, just to hold it, wrap myself in it whenever I was scared or unhappy. Then one day, I heard my mother... I heard my grandmother... say that she was sorry that she never learned how to knit.

Jj: Do you think melinda must have made it?

Haley: I found other baby blankets in her apartment when I was staying with her. When I asked her about it, she said that knitting was something that she did to relax, and I--I said okay, sounded good to me.

Jj: She must have sent that blanket for you, or left it behind.

Haley: I was a lonely kid, but every time I had that blanket, I felt like-- like I wasn't alone.

I wonder if maybe I was feeling this connection I-- that I didn't even know existed.

Jennifer: Melinda, you told haley tonight that you were her mother, and now you want to go shoot jack and eve in a room full of people?

Melinda: I owe that to haley.

Jennifer: No, but do you really think that's going to make up for all the years that you didn't do anything for her? Yes, you will get revenge, but haley will still be deported.

Melinda: So what, I'm not supposed to do anything?

Jennifer: No, I didn't say that. I understand that you hate jack and eve, but they are not the ones who hurt haley the most.

Melinda: Then who has?

Jennifer: You have. I'm just saying that it would just be good for you to just accept that and-- and move forward and just try to be different.

Stefan: What happened? Where's nicole?

[Tender reed and string music]

Chloe: [Cries]

Nicole: Um...

[Clears throat] I have to go.

Eric: Could we just talk?

Nicole: I've already said everything I need to say to you.

Eric: If you just--just give me a chance, maybe I could--

Nicole: To what? Make me understand why you gave my daughter to a woman who was targeted by a drug cartel? No, I--I understand. You were busy. Now I see you have a new girlfriend.

Sarah: No, that's-- that's just not true. I'm marrying rex, and eric never stopped loving you.

Nicole: Really? Then why didn't he do what i asked him to do? Why didn't he convince chloe to let him raise my daughter? And now holly is dead. So could you please just have the decency to leave me alone and let me live my life?

[Melancholy music]

Thank you for everything that you've done.

Victor: Well, we could spend all night listing reasons why xander shouldn't have this job. Not gonna change anything. I told brady he could hire whoever he wanted to. He hired xander.

Kate: Well, you could question brady's competence.

Victor: That's not the answer. The time being, we're stuck with this worthless maggot.

Xander: Why do I get the impression it's me you're talking about with such affection?

Kate: How did you get in? I'm going to call security.

Xander: Oh, no. I'm on their list now.

Kate: Don't give me that.

Xander: Oh, you might want to check out our company's updated flowchart. You'll see that i don't actually report to you. I answer to the ceo and the chairman of the board, and that's it. I know I've been a disappointment to you, uncle.

Victor: That's putting it mildly.

Xander: Of course, you're not impressed that i negotiated with brady to secure this fine position, or that i moved from the gardening shed to an executive suite, but I'm not gonna stop there. I'm going to make you see that i can be a better ceo than brady ever dreamed of being.

[Tense music]

Victor: Would you be so kind as to fetch me my gun?

[Moody music]

Melinda: I just did what i thought I had to do.

Jennifer: Yeah. I mean, you just-- you didn't have to be cold and--and distant. You could have acknowledged her and then maybe helped her come here legally.

Melinda: I paid for her school. I gave her a place to live.

Jennifer: Yes, you did, but when it came out that she was illegal, you asked her to move out.

Melinda: I thought if I was mayor, then maybe I...

Jennifer: I know, but she's your daughter, and you were denying her a place to live.

Melinda: Do you think that was easy?

Jennifer: No, no. I just think that--that maybe all of this has hardened your heart, and it's taken a toll on you, but really, I think that it's hurt haley the most, and she needs you right now. You need to put her needs before your own.

Melinda: I know I should've told the truth. I haven't been a mother at all.

Jennifer: You can be one now, melinda.

Melinda: How?

Jennifer: You can start by-- by just giving me that gun, okay?

Jj: Two of us are quite a pair. I have a dad who can't remember me.

Haley: And I have a mom who tried to forget me. Why didn't she want to be my mom? I don't get it. All those years... we...

Jj: Hey, look at me. This is not about something you did. Look, I know for a fact that you were a beautiful, smart, completely amazing little girl.

Haley: You don't know that. Could've been a brat.

Jj: How can a brat grow up and become the beautiful, smart, completely amazing woman you are now?

[Tender music]

Stefan: Wow, I'm sorry nicole said those things to you. They're not true.

Chloe: Well, maybe i should've just done what victor wanted, let holly stay with brady at his house.

Stefan: No, no, no. Victor kiriakis is an ass. If you'd have done what he wanted, holly wouldn't have understood. She's too little. She would've thought that she lost her mom again. Hey.

Chloe: [Cries]

Stefan: She loved you so much. I'll never forget the sound of the two of you singing together.

Chloe: [Cries] She had such a beautiful little voice. Oh, my god. I felt so blessed to have her in our lives, and now, how could this have happened? Why did this happen to our sweet little angel? Oh, my... [Cries]

Eric: Nicole's right. I just got caught up in my own problems, and I bailed on my responsibility to holly.

Sarah: What were you supposed to do?

Eric: I was supposed to keep holly, just like nicole asked me to, and I could've backed you up when you tried to convince chloe to get out of the dimera house.

Brady: Eric, trust me. Hindsight is always 20/20.

Sarah: It's easier for nicole to be angry than accept this horrific loss.

Eric: Sarah, holly is dead! Her daughter is dead, and i can do nothing to make it right!

[Knock at door]

[Suspenseful music]

Nicole: What the hell are you doing here?

Xander: You've got your recording and your divorce. Won't you at least ask me in? Things are bad.

[Somber music]

Jennifer: Can you put the safety on, please?

Melinda: It's already on.

Jennifer: You did the right thing.

Melinda: Thank you for helping me. My question is, what do I do next? Ice is picking up haley right now.

Jennifer: You can be her lawyer.

Melinda: If I can find out where she is.

[Cell phone beeps]


Jennifer: This is my office. Jj and haley are on the run, and there's an apb out on them right now.

Haley: So what do we do? Not about my mom or your dad. They're hopeless.

Jj: I know. We'll worry about ice in the morning. Now you are here with me, and you're safe.

[Tender string music]

Stefan: Hey. I want to say something to you, and this may be the worst possible time, but... I had this hope that someday, you and I and holly and parker would be a family.

Chloe: You did?

Stefan: Yeah. Family'S... a thing that I never had, and I'm told that it meant everything to my father.

Chloe: [Sniffs]

Stefan: I still have that hope, chloe, and I want you to know that I will take care of you and parker as long as you allow it.

[Tender music]

Kate: What does xander have on brady? Because I know that's what this is all about.

Victor: I'm not at liberty to discuss that now. What i would like is for you to watch xander like a hawk.

Kate: Okay. I'll do that, but only if he loses the patchouli body spray.

Victor: Is that what that is? I thought a rodent had died in the wall.

Kate: [Suppressed laugh] I have to say, it'll make it easy to find him, because I'll just follow my nose.

Victor: [Chuckles]

Kate: But whatever you need, you can count on me.

Sarah: I'm really sorry. I don't know why I can't just keep my big mouth shut.

[Phone beeps]

[Melancholy music]

I gotta go. I'm sorry again.

Brady: Give nicole some time. She'll come around. At least she's free of xander.

Nicole: Ugh.

Xander: Mm.

Nicole: Wow. Finally made yourself useful.

Xander: What's all the champagne for, anyway, celebrating our divorce?

Nicole: Actually, I am celebrating... the fact that my plan went off without a hitch.

Xander: Mm. Well, it's good that I'm here, seeing as it's our plan. You couldn't have done any of this without me... partner.
