Claire: So tell me, what did you do on New Year's Eve?
Allie: God, I had a wild night. Me and Nicole made popcorn and then we watched the ball drop on TV at a volume of about two because we didn't want to wake Henry and Holly up.
Claire: You are a party animal.
Allie: I know, right. What did you do though? What were you up to?
Claire: Uh, pretty much the same thing, except I didnít have the volume as loud as I wanted because I was home alone.
Allie: What about Charlie? Is he still not feeling well?
Claire: No, no, no. He's fully recovered from whatever he came down with on Christmas Eve. In fact, he actually decided to go into the office last night.
Allie: On New Year's Eve?
Claire: With everyone off for the holidays, Charlie was left to deal with any issues that cropped up. That's my boyfriend for you. Always finding ways to solve a problem.
Charlie: There you go. You did a great job with the soup. I didn't even have to pretend the spoon was an airplane or anything.
Ava: Well, I was practically staving. Charlie, how long are you going to keep me tied up here?
Charlie: Not much longer. I'm almost done with you.
Ava: Yeah, and then what? You going to finally kill me?
Charlie: I told you I'm not a murderer. And I can't exactly kill my own mother.
Ava: So you're gonna let me go?
Charlie: Sorry. I think we both know that if I did that you'd run and tell everybody what I did with Allie, and I can't exactly let that happen.
Ava: So you're not gonna kill me and you're not gonna let me go. So what's the third option?
Charlie: Don't worry. I know exactly what I'm going to do with you.
Kate: Do you really think I'm that shallow? That I'm embarrassed to be with him because, what, he doesn't walk around in a suit?
Jennifer: I don't know. You've worked pretty hard to keep that relationship a secret. If I were Jake, I'd pretty much be thinking the same thing.
Abigail: Where have you been?
Chad: Forget where I've been. You are exactly where I expected you to be.
Abigail: Chad, look, this is not --
Chad: Stop! Stop! Okay, I know what is going on between you two.
Jack: You know all about us. Why?
[Door opens, closes]
Gwen: I believe that belongs to me.
Jack: Yes. Yes, it does. Now that you're here, maybe you can tell me why you're in possession of it.
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "Days of Our Lives."
Gwen: I think the burning question is why are you poking around through my personal belongings?
Jack: Actually, Abigail discovered this file in your room last night.
Gwen: Oh. I see. So neither of you have any respect for anyone's privacy.
Jack: I'll repeat my question--why do you have all these clippings?
Gwen: I think the answer to that is fairly obvious.
Jack: Well, then I must be obtuse, because I can't figure it out.
Gwen: I've been here for a few months, haven't I? Working for your daughter as a nanny.
Gwen: And I wanted to get to know the family that I was going to be working for.
Jack: Ah. So this was all just research?
Gwen: Yes. Research. Exactly. That's right. See, you're a newspaper man. You understand what it means to do your homework, don't you?
Jack: It's very thorough. Not just about Abigail, but about me and her mother.
Gwen: Well, can you fault me for wanting to know the whole story?
Jack: Well, I suppose it's best to know what kind of a situation you're walking into.
Gwen: See. There you are. I knew you'd understand. There's absolutely nothing wrong with what I've done.
Jack: Actually, there is.
Abigail: [Sighs] Okay, look. I know that you think that there's something going on between Jake and me --
Chad: Stop! Stop denying it. I saw the love nest that you booked at the Salem Inn.
Jake: Love nest? What the hell --
Chad: Shut up! I'm not talking to you!
Abigail: I did not book a room at the Salem Inn.
Chad: Really? Then how do you explain this?
Abigail: What is that?
Chad: What is this? Well, see, I went to the Inn, and it didn't take much to get the clerk to show me a copy of the bill.
Abigail: I literally don't even know what that is.
Chad: You don't? Then let me explain it to you. See, this is a bill that shows that you paid for the room with your credit card. See. There's your name.
Abigail: What? I don't understand.
Chad: Yes, it is. It's a reservation that you made so you could spend New Year's Eve with him.
Kate: Just because I don't want people to know my business doesn't mean that I'm ashamed of Jake.
Jennifer: So you're proud to be with him?
Kate: I care for him.
Jennifer: Not what I asked.
Kate: Okay. I don't care if a guy gets dirt under his fingernails. I don't care if he doesn't know which fork to use first, okay? And witty banter, that's all great, but you know what's even better? Honesty.
Jennifer: Oh. And that's Jake?
Kate: He knows who he is, and he's secure in that.
Jennifer: Okay. Well, if you don't care about Jake's social standing, then why don't you want people to know that you're together?
Kate: Okay. I'm not embarrassed by Jake. I'm embarrassed by me.
Ava: Charlie, please. You have to tell me what you're planning to do with me.
Charlie: I could, but it's probably best if you don't know. It'll be much less upsetting if you don't see it coming.
Ava: What's that supposed to mean? Huh? You're gonna have me incapacitated somehow? You gonna bury me alive? Smuggle me out of the country?
Charlie: I'm gonna have you committed.
Jennifer: You're embarrassed by yourself?
Kate: Okay. Let me put this very simply. Despite all outward appearances, Jake is actually a very mature, smart, caring guy who's also younger than me. And if we go public, that's what exactly what everyone's gonna be saying. Look at that cougar pouncing on that hot, young guy.
Jennifer: That is what you're worried about? You have dated younger men before.
Kate: Oh, great. So that makes it better, and now I'm a serial cougar? I mean, come on. Not to mention the fact that he's also a DiMera. I mean, and how many of those have I slept with?
Jennifer: Hmm, let's see. There's been EJ, Stefano, Andre --
Kate: Okay, that's enough. That's enough. Obviously it's just going to look like I'm sleeping through the entire family.
Jennifer: Okay. People will talk. They will say all sorts of mean and judgmental things, and that's what people do. But you're Kate fricking Roberts. Since when have you given a damn about what anybody else thinks about you?
Gwen: What crime am I being accused of now?
Jack: You lied to Jennifer and me.
Gwen: About what?
Jack: I think I should start by telling you this. We got back together last night.
Gwen: Did you? That's really marvelous. A New Year's reunion. Lovely. I knew you would.
Jack: Yes, well, we... we had a long talk, Jennifer and I. We compared notes about the marital advice that we'd gotten in our time apart. Namely yours.
Gwen: What notes were you comparing then? I already told you that I pushed Jennifer to get back together with you.
Jack: That's funny because Jennifer told me you encouraged her not to get back together with me.
Jack: You told her she couldn't trust me. I believe the words were, "once a cheater, always a cheater."
Gwen: Well, I think she must've misunderstood.
Jack: My wife is a reporter. She's very good at quoting her sources accurately. She was very clear about what you said, and I have no reason not to believe her.
Gwen: Yeah, but, you know, that just doesn't really make sense, does it? Why would I want to cause trouble for you and Jennifer? I have been nothing but kind and supportive of you and your family. I even threw you a party.
Jack: That ended in disaster. Which makes me wonder... did you have something to do that too?
Abigail: I mean, this is a mistake.
Chad: Yeah, is it? You know you have to cancel 24 hours in advance if you're not going to use a room.
Abigail: I was never going to use the room.
Chad: Yeah, well why would have to when you're going to move the party here under my roof?
Jake: Chad, I know what this-
Chad: Shut up!
Abigail: Could you please just stop?
Jake: Please. Just listen to your wife for once.
Chad: Oh, I'm going to beat you senseless.
Jake: Like to see you try!
Abigail: You're out of control right now.
Jake: No, no. Let him go. I'm not afraid.
Abigail: Will you get out of here? Can you leave please?
Jake: Oh, what, and leave you alone with him?
Chad: Oh, yeah? As opposed to alone with you?
Abigail: Enough! Yes, I need you to go so I can please just handle this.
Chad: Get out of my house!
Allie: That sucks that you didn't get to spend New Year's Eve with Charlie.
Claire: I know, right? I finally get a boyfriend and still no kiss at midnight.
Allie: But things are still good between you guys, right?
Claire: They're better than good.
Claire: Yeah. I went over on Christmas night like you suggested.
Allie: Okay, and?
Claire: And he loved the shirt that I got him.
Allie: I knew he would.
Claire: In fact, I even helped him try it on. Things may have got a little intense, if you know what I mean. But then we stopped. Charlie was worried that he was sick, and he didn't want me to get sick too.
Allie: That was thoughtful.
Claire: Yeah. Charlie is a thoughtful guy. He's probably got the biggest heart of anyone I know.
Ava: You're going to have me committed to a mental hospital?
Charlie: It's the perfect solution, don't you think? I mean, you'll be safe...ish. And you'll be out of the way so you can't tell anybody what I did. Plus, it makes perfect sense. You do have a history of mental illness.
Ava: Only because my father plied me with pills to make me crazy.
Charlie: Hmm. Either way, the result was the same.
Ava: I am not mentally ill. I was doped up and-and-and-and I'm completely fine. I -- I am not on the pills anymore.
Charlie: Actually, you are.
Charlie: You've been taking them for a while now. You just didn't know it.
Ava: No... how could you?
Charlie: I'm sorry, Mom. But it had to be done. I've been drugging your food for days.
Ava: You've been drugging my food? How did you even get the pills?
Charlie: That part was pretty easy. I just forged a prescription, and they handed them right to me. And I would expect to see results pretty quickly, especially after the healthy dose I put in your soup.
Ava: I can't believe you did this to me.
Charlie: You always did underestimate me, didn't you?
Ava: Charlie, it's not too late. You -- you can stop this. You don't have to go through with this. I promise. I promise I won't tell anyone that you took advantage of Allie.
Charlie: [Scoffs] "Took advantage of"? Wow, look at you using euphemisms to try to soften me up. [Sighs] I wish I could trust you, but I can't. Especially not now after Claire and I have gotten so close. So, pretty soon you will start to lose your grip on reality. Once you're over the edge, I, as your son, will have no choice but to commit you. For your own good, of course.
Ava: I won't let you get away with this. I will tell them. I'll tell them what you did. I will tell them that you drugged me.
Charlie: By then you won't know where or even who you are. Do you really think that in the middle of a hallucination you'll be coherent enough to rat me out?
Ava: I'll hold on. I'll keep it in my mind.
Charlie: You'll try, but you'll fail. Then I'll head back to Salem and I'll get on with my life. You are going to live the rest of your days in a padded cell, and Claire and I will be happily ever after.
Abigail: Okay, now that Jake is gone are you gonna to listen to me?
Chad: What, to more lies?! You want me to sit here and listen to you make excuses about why you booked a room with Jake at the Inn?
Abigail: I don't have to make excuses because I never booked a room.
Chad: What you mean? It's right there, Ab. It's right there!
Abigail: I see. I understand. I see that, but I did not book a room for me and Jake -- would never book a room for me and Jake because there is nothing going on with me and Jake.
Chad: Really? Then how do you explain me overhearing Jake telling you that he was going to keep his distance so I didn't get more suspicious?
Abigail: Oh my God. Yeah. Of course he doesn't want you to be any more suspicious of him and me. Which, by the way, there is no reason for in the first place because the person that Jake's running around here having an affair with is Kate.
Abigail: Yeah! The person Jake is having an affair with is Kate.
Chad: That... doesn't make any sense.
Abigail: Well, it makes sense to him. My mom overheard Kate booking a room at the Salem Inn, and she said she was meeting somebody who lives in this house whose name starts with a J.
Chad: Well, then maybe your dad and Kate are still sleeping together.
Abigail: No. Nope. Cause my mom showed a picture of my dad to the clerk, and he said it wasn't him, so who else does that leave?
Chad: Well, I don't know. It doesn't prove that Jake and Kate are sleeping together.
Abigail: You're right. You're right. It doesn't. So I went and I asked Jake myself, and you know what? He admitted it. I am telling you the truth.
Chad: That doesn't make any sense.
Abigail: They did a really good job of hiding it.
Chad: Okay, well, even if Jake and Kate are sleeping together...it doesn't explain why Gwen saw him kissing you.
Gwen: [Chuckles] How could I have anything to do with what happened at the party?
Jack: Never occurred to me until this moment, but I just had a thought. You were with Abigail when she found the letter I wrote to Kate.
Gwen: So you're saying I somehow just led her straight to the letter?
Jack: That's exactly what I'm saying.
Gwen: How? How would I know about this letter that you wrote to your lover before I even got to town?
Jack: First of all, it was a one-night stand, and I don't know.
Gwen: Yes, you don't know. Exactly, you don't know. Because you were poking around my things.
Jack: I'm piecing it together, all right? All I know is that the letter, the party--none of it adds up. Unless it does.
Gwen: So, hang on. Hang on. I just want to get this straight. You think -- you think that I'm plotting against your family this entire time?
Gwen: Why? Why would I want to hurt you... or your family?
Jennifer: Since when have you been constrained by the norms of society? You have proven again and again that you don't care about doing what you're supposed to do. You barely care about how your actions affect other people.
Kate: Oh, that's flattering. I think. But, actually, you're giving me too much credit because I do have feelings.
Jennifer: And those feelings are going to get hurt by the people that judge you, and you're just going to have to deal with that, because this secrecy thing can only go on for so long. My question to you is how much is Jake worth to you? Does he make you happy or not?
Jake: Sorry to interrupt, but I just need to chat with Kate for a second.
Jennifer: Oh no, no, no, it's fine. You're not interrupting. I've, um -- I've said everything I have to say.
Jake: Is now a good time
Claire: It's so nice to be with a guy like Charlie. You know, someone doesn't play games or cause drama. Especially with my history. I'm just not used to being with someone where it's just so easy.
Allie: That's so great. And you haven't even known him for that long.
Claire: I know. I keep thinking that, I don't know, maybe we knew each other in a past life.
Allie: Maybe we all did. I mean, I told you that when I met him I had this feeling that I'd met him before.
Claire: Yeah, that is so weird.
Allie: Yeah, I think he just must have one of those faces.
Claire: Aww, I miss that face. No, seriously. He's been working all week. I haven't seen him since Christmas.
Allie: So why don't you call him and ask him to join you?
Claire: Because I don't want to be one of those girls.
Allie: The kind that calls her boyfriend?
Claire: The kind that always needs attention. No. I have a history of that, okay? I would prefer to be the one who is being chased this time.
Allie: Okay. Claire, you want to see him, right?
Claire: Of course I do.
Allie: So why play games? You said it was easy with Charlie, right?
Allie: Okay, so get on your phone and call him.
Claire: You're right. I'm being silly.
Ava: Charlie, you can't do this to me.
Charlie: Why not?
Ava: [Shrill laugh] Because I am your mother.
Charlie: I think we can both agree you haven't exactly been a mother to me.
Ava: So I'll do better. I promise you. Please, just give me the chance.
Charlie: I'm sorry. If it makes you feel better, I'm not exactly enjoying myself, but this is the only solution left.
Ava: No. No. No, it isn't. I will protect you, Charlie. I can help you. I promise I will keep you safe, and you can still be with Claire. [Cell phone rings] Please, Charlie. Charlie, please.
Charlie: Oh. It's Claire now. I'm going to need you to be quiet.
Ava: No, no, no no. Charlie, no! [Muffled] No!
Charlie: Hey, Claire. I was just thinking about you.
Claire: You were? Aren't you supposed to be working?
Charlie: I'm always thinking about you.
Claire: That's so sweet. So, I know that you are probably busy, but I was wondering if maybe you could take a break.
Charlie: A break?
Claire: I'm at Julie's place, and I really want to see you.
Charlie: You know, a change of scenery sounds nice. I'm finding it impossible to concentrate.
Abigail: Gwen said that she saw Jake and me kissing?
Chad: She did.
Abigail: Well, she was mistaken.
Chad: Well, was she mistaken when she heard you booking the room?
Abigail: Did she say that?
Chad: Was she mistaken about the bracelet?
Abigail: What bracelet? I --
Chad: The bracelet. The bracelet that Jake gave Gwen on Christmas.
Abigail: Okay, what about it?
Chad: Well, Gwen said that Jake came to her and said that he wanted it back because he was going to give it to the person that it was really intended for.
Abigail: Okay, and Jake told Gwen that that person was me?
Chad: Well, yeah. Didn't -- didn't take a genius to fill in the blank.
Abigail: I don't have the bracelet. The bracelet was intended for Kate.
Chad: Well, okay. The still doesn't explain why he was kissing you.
Abigail: I was never kissing Jake! Gwen is mistaken or... I don't know. Maybe she's lying I --
Chad: Why would she lie?
Abigail: I don't know. But...maybe it has something to do with the secret folder she has on me.
Jack: I don't know why you'd want to hurt me or my family. All I know's that something is going on, and I'm going to get to the bottom of it.
Gwen: Really. Let me guess. You'll go to the ends of the earth to prove how very dodgy I am.
Jack: That's right. You seem to have done your research on me.
Gwen: I know you, Jack.
Jack: Well, then maybe one point that you're not clear on -- nothing's more important to me than my family. I love them more than words can express, so if anyone tries to hurt them, I will do whatever it takes to protect them.
Gwen: [Laughs] Really? Ha ha! Because from what I've heard... nobody has hurt their family more than you have. Do we really need a sign to live, laugh, and love?
Kate: So how did you find me?
Jake: Just lucky I guess. This will only take a minute.
Kate: Okay. What's going on?
Jake: Chad and Abigail are having it out back at the mansion.
Kate: Having it out about what?
Jake: Well, Chad accused me again of having an affair with Abigail, and I'd imagine by now she's told him about -- you know, about you and me.
Kate: I see.
Jake: I just thought you should know.
Kate: No. Thanks. Thanks you for the warning.
Jake: Yeah. But, hey, no worries, right? If he gets upset at you, you just tell him it's over between us.
Kate: What if I don't want it to be over?
Jack: So... you have done your research.
Gwen: Didn't take a lot to find out about your greatest hits. Cheating, lying, abandonment.
Jack: I don't deny I've made terrible mistakes in my life, and yes, a lot of them have hurt Jennifer and my kids. And I've lived with that for as long as I can remember. But if you think you know me by reading a bunch of newspaper clippings, think again. You don't want for an enemy.
Chad: What fol -- what folder?
Abigail: Gwen has a folder that is full of articles about me and my family. I found it in her room last night.
Chad: Why were you going through her room?
Abigail: Anna and I were talking, and I was sharing with her some of the things that have been popping up for us lately. And she said that in that her experience, you don't really trust the nanny, because it's not unusual for them to be wanting something.
Chad: Do you have any idea how paranoid that sounds?
Abigail: You don't really get to talk to me about being paranoid right now. Do you remember when Gwen was using you to make Jake jealous?
Chad: This has nothing to do with that.
Abigail: I'm just saying that maybe it was the beginning of something, and so when Anna suggested that we search Gwen's room, I agreed to it.
Chad: You know how wrong that is, right?
Abigail: She takes care of our kids, Chad, and she's hiding something. I'm not proud of it, but I am really glad I did it because of what I found.
Chad: A -- a bunch of newspaper clippings doesn't mean anything.
Abigail: It's weird.
Chad: Sure, but she works for us. Maybe she was doing research to... to be better at her job.
Abigail: Well... I think there's only one way to find out. Let's go ask her.
Chad: Okay. Fine.
Charlie: How do I look?
Ava: What'd you say?
Charlie: Oh. Never mind. Looks like the drugs are already starting to take effect.
Ava: Drugs...no. No.
Charlie: Just go with it, Mom. It will make everything easier. I'm gonna out to see Claire. I'll be back, eventually, but at that point you probably won't know the difference.
Ava: No... Charlie... please... no...
Charlie: There we go. Okay.
Ava: [Muffled] Charlie... Charlie, no.
Charlie: I'll see you soon.
Jake: Look, Kate, if you're suggesting that we keep sneaking around I'm sorry, but I'm out. Like I told you last night, there's no point in continuing this when you're ashamed of being with me.
Kate: I'm not ashamed. I'm not -- I'm not ashamed of you.
Jake: What does that mean?
Kate: [Sighs] This is really hard to say.
Jake: Then just say it.
Kate: Okay. I know I come off as a powerful, confident woman -- and I am -- but I also have insecurities like everyone else.
Jake: What the hell do you have to be insecure about?
Kate: Look, I... I'm not concerned about people wondering why someone like me is with you. It's them wondering why someone like you is with me.
Kate: Well. It's the age thing, Jake.
Jake: You're worried about the age thing?
Kate: I'm concerned about the age thing. People looking at me and thinking that I'm predatory or desperate.
Jake: You're not either of those things, Kate.
Kate: I know that. I know that. But it's the way I feel. And that's a frightening thing, you know? And, oddly enough, it was Jennifer... who made me realize that I really need to get over that. You know? I kind of need to get over myself.
Kate: Because you're worth it.
Jake: Wow. So what's that mean?
Kate: What that means is that I wouldn't mind being public, you know. I don't mind the world knowing about us. If there still is an us.
Gwen: You think you're so very clever, Jack. "I think you're trying to hurt [American accent] me and my family." [Laughs] Yes, that's right. You have no idea how very close to the truth you are.
Abigail: Oh, well, you are home after all. And how convenient. She's got the folder right there.
Gwen: I heard you went through my things last night.
Abigail: Yep. Sorry, I invaded your privacy.
Gwen: Yes, well, this is your home.
Abigail: Glad you see it that way. So I hope you don't mind my asking, but why exactly do you have that folder?
Gwen: As I told your father, I was interested in getting to know this family. There are a lot of stories, as you know, and I wanted to make sure that this was somewhere where I wanted to be.
Chad: That seems pretty reasonable.
Gwen: Thank you, Chad.
Abigail: Fine. Okay. But I'm going to ask you something else, because according to Chad here, you saw Jake and me kissing, which we both know is not true. Gwen!
Gwen: I didn't see you and Jake kissing. I made it up.
Allie: I'm so psyched that Charlie is coming.
Claire: Hey, you should stick around. The three of us can hang.
Allie: And be on third wheel duty? I'll pass.
Claire: You invited me to lunch.
Allie: It's cool. I have a therapy appointment at Grandma Marlena's actually, so...
Claire: How is that going?
Allie: Great. Yeah. Therapy's helpful, but I know that I'll actually feel better when the man who hurt me gets what he deserves.
Charlie: Hey. I didn't know you were going to be here.
Allie: Oh, yeah. Don't mind me. I'm actually just leaving, so...
Charlie: Oh. Okay. Well, it was nice to see you again. And Happy New Year.
Allie: Yeah, you too. I'll catch you guys later.
Claire: Allie, are you okay?
Kate: Well, don't leave me in suspense. It's not every day that I make a romantic proclamation in the town square.
Kate: And I am definitely not used to waiting for an answer.
Jake: So you want to know if there's still an us after last night? Does that answer your question?
Jennifer: Great timing.
Jack: Right. Right. How was "The Spectator"?
Jennifer: Oh, it was good. Humming along. I see you got your things from the DiMera mansion.
Jack: I did. I did. And I had an interesting run-in while I was there.
Jack: With Gwen.
Jack: Yeah. I think we might be onto something. She's a bigger problem than we thought.
Abigail: You made it up? Why would you do that?
Chad: Why -- why would you tell me you saw Jake kissing Abigail? If I had known that was a lie I wouldn't have --
Abigail: If you'd known that was a lie... what? Go ahead. Finish your sentence.
