Gabi: I'm always amazed.

Jake: Amazed?

Gabi: Yes, at how often I'm just randomly running into people I know here, especially, yeah, in Salem. It's actually what I love most about this town-- sense of community.

Jake: Huh, yeah, right. Well, I should get going.

Gabi: Uh, Jake, wait. Um...

Chloe: Lucas, hey.

Lucas: Uh... this isn't a bad time, is it?

Chloe: No, no, of course not.

Lucas: Eh, is everything okay?

Chloe: Yeah, yeah, I-- you know what? No, not really.

Lucas: It's Brady, isn't it?

Brady: You're sure that you don't need me to come down to the prison? And everything with Kristen is okay? Okay, well, I appreciate you looking out for her. Thank you, Vivian.

Sami: Vivian? As in Vivian Alamain? Why were you talking to her?

Brady: She's my only way to get to Kristen.

Kristen as Susan: Whoo! You are never gonna pull that off, honey!

Kate: Susan, you scared the hell out of me.

Kristen as Susan: Ooh! Well, why would you be scared of little old me, huh? I mean, Susan Banks can't hurt a fly.

Kate: Then what the hell are you doing in my house?

Kristen as Susan: Uh...

Xander: [Sighs] No sign of your mother?

Chanel: Not yet. She's always fashionably late. I wonder how we'll spend our time until she gets here.

Xander: More champagne? Did you pay for this?

Chanel: I figured by the time the bill comes, we'll have our hands on a cool ten mil, and it won't be a problem.

Xander: All right. But it's coming out your half.

Chanel: Whatever.

Xander: You know... I could have just swiped a bottle from behind the counter.

Chanel: We don't have to slum it anymore, Xander. Once my mom pays to end our marriage, we'll have enough cash to soak in a hot tub full of expensive champagne.

Xander: Ah, I do like the way you think. If we play our cards right, this will pay off big for both of us.

Paulina: And, uh... just what cards are those exactly?

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "Days of our Lives."

[Soft orchestration]

Xander: Paulina, yeah, I was just explaining to your lovely daughter that she better make you cough up some money, or she and I will be together until death us do part.

Chanel: Mama, I'm so sorry.

Paulina: Oh... my niece told me you would be looking for a payout.

Xander: I'm just hoping we can come to, uh, mutually agreeable terms.

Paulina: And what exactly are those terms?

Xander: You want your daughter's freedom. I want $10 million. That's fair, wouldn't you say?

Paulina: [Scoffs] [Laughing] Fair? Oh, this is extortion. And as for getting $10 million out of me, when hell freezes over.

Kristen as Susan: Uh, why am I here? Um, oh, I'm here because I had a premonition. Yeah, and considering Brady Black was shot, I couldn't let that happen to you.

Kate: [Sighs] Oh, my God. Oh, so you're here to see me?

Kristen as Susan: Yep, yep, that's right.

Kate: And you have a premonition, what, about my future?

Kristen as Susan: Yeah, and that is why I know you are gonna listen to what I have to say.

Kate: Okay, okay, fine. Whatever, just tell me-- what's your vision?

Kristen as Susan: It's a warning. It's a warning, and you-- you are in terrible danger.

Kate: Oh, really? What kind of danger?

Kristen as Susan: Terrible danger. Yeah, I'm sorry, Kate. I mean someone is after you.

Chloe: Ugh. How did you know I was upset about Brady?

Lucas: I just kind of did the math, you know? I know you guys are working together again. And I thought that would stir up a bunch of old feelings.

Chloe: Yeah, old feelings.

Lucas: So, it's true?

Chloe: Sadly enough. I mean, it's not like I went looking for it. We just--we just spent so much time together and getting closer, and then after Brady was shot, I guess--

Lucas: Yeah, no, it's totally understandable.

Chloe: Predictable, you mean, and pathetic.

Lucas: No, not hardly, not at all. Um... I just think, you know, I don't think you should act on those feelings, 'cause I know that he's committed to somebody now.

Chloe: I know that. Brady made that very clear.

Lucas: But, you know, Chloe, you are too special to be crying over someone who doesn't realize that.

Chloe: Thank you for saying that.

Lucas: No, it's true. It's true. You definitely deserve someone who puts you first, you know? Someone who's open and available.

Chloe: Yeah, who's that? Wait. You mean you? Truthfully, it's frustrating to see how fast dust reappears.

Chloe: Wait, you're saying that I should give up on Brady and be with you?

Lucas: Well, I didn't say that outright, but--

Chloe: I'm sorry, I just deduced that from the look of your face, is what I meant.

Lucas: Right. No, you know, I just-- well, what if it were us, you know? What if it were me? It wouldn't be that weird, would it? We were married, and we did get back together a couple years ago.

Chloe: And then you left me.

Lucas: I didn't really leave you. I had to go to Italy to tend to Allie. I had to. But I always wondered what it would be like if I stayed. You know, I wondered what-- where our relationship would be right now. And you're not saying anything. Okay.

Chloe: I-I'm sorry. It's just, you know, I haven't seen you in forever or talked to you, and then you just show up here, and you're saying you want to jump back into a relationship with me?

Lucas: You know what? You're right. You're right. You caught me. You caught me. I, uh... I have ulterior motives.

Brady: Trust me, Vivian's the last person I thought of confiding in about Kristen, but she's actually given me some pretty good advice about how to deal with Kristen lately.

Sami: I'm sure, yeah, Vivian, she's famous for her good advice. You know, she's so wise and reasonable.

Brady: I know, I know, it's nuts, okay? But for some reason, they formed a bond in there, and I'm glad she's not alone. She has Vivian, but I'm just hoping that she's okay and she doesn't screw up in there.

Sami: That means that if you're here pretending to be Susan, then she's...

Kristen: Having a little holiday in Statesville.

Sami: Kristen! What? You forced her to switch places with you?

Kristen: Okay, Sami, I did not force her. She went willingly.

Sami: Oh. [Scoffs] I'm not sure how it could get much worse.

Brady: Why would you say that?

Kate: Someone's after me? Who would that be?

Kristen as Susan: I don't know exactly.

Kate: Oh! Well, that is so helpful.

Kristen as Susan: Oh, my God. Don't you dare blow this off, Kate DiMera. You are in danger, and they are closer than you think.

Kate: Oh, they?

Kristen as Susan: Yes, they. They--yes, they. And so, you got to pack your bags now and leave town, right now.

Kate: [Laughs] Well, that's weird.

Kristen as Susan: What is?

Kate: Well, that's exactly what I'm doing. I'm packing my bags, and I'm leaving town.

Kristen as Susan: Oh, my God, well, look at that. Perfect timing, huh?

Kate: Mm-hmm.

Kristen as Susan: Business trip?

Kate: No, it's personal. I'm going away with Jake.

Kristen as Susan: Oh.

Jake: What is it, Gabi?

Gabi: Well, I'm glad I ran into you.

Jake: Look, if you're gonna start with--

Gabi: No, I want to talk business.

Jake: Business?

Gabi: Yeah, I was at the Basic Black office, and you know those warehouses that Titan lent to you a few months ago?

Jake: Uh-uh.

Gabi: Well, apparently Philip decided to help out his friend Chloe with a little favor and rented out some and could store some stock in them.

Jake: Why didn't we use our own warehouses?

Gabi: Apparently there were some flooding issues, and Chloe was in a pinch, Phil saved the day, but now that Gabi Chic is with Titan, we're gonna need those back.

Jake: Why are you talking to me about this? Brady runs Basic Black. You know that.

Gabi: Apparently, he's decided he's not gonna be coming into the office anymore.

Jake: What?

Gabi: Yeah, all I know is that he's gonna be doing his work from home, but I just figured I would go straight to the top. Like, what, you think you and I can't work this out together?

Chanel: Mama, you have to pay Xander.

Paulina: I don't have to do a damn thing.

Chanel: If you don't give him what he wants, he won't let me out of this marriage.

Paulina: Is that right?

Xander: It is.

Chanel: Do you have any idea what kind of man he is?

Paulina: I have a pretty good idea. Abe Carver filled me in on every detail of his sordid past.

Xander: That must have been entertaining.

Paulina: It was disgusting. And for the record, I don't want my daughter anywhere near you.

Xander: I have no desire to be anywhere near your brat of a daughter.

Chanel: Hey.

Xander: So just pay me what I'm asking, and I'll be on my way.

Paulina: Well, if only I could, but I'm afraid I just don't have that kind of money.

Paulina: The last thing I want is for you to be stuck in some dead-end marriage to a criminal, baby. But I'm not giving that man five million.

Xander: Well, I'm sure there's a number that will make us both happy. How about four million?

Paulina: No.

Xander: Three?

Paulina: Sorry, not sorry.

Xander: Two?

Paulina: Nope.

Xander: Fine, $1 million. That really is my last offer. If you're not willing to pay that, then I'm never giving your daughter a divorce.

Paulina: $1 million, huh?

Xander: Well, you have to agree that's fair. I've come down 90% from my original offer.

Chanel: I think that's very fair.

Paulina: [Sighs] One million. [Sighs] [Sighs] There. I hope you're happy.

Jake: We still talking about warehouses here?

Gabi: Yeah, of course. Yes, I didn't mean to--

Jake: Didn't you?

Philip: Gabi, I see you found Jake.

Gabi: Uh, yes, I was just telling him how you did a favor for Chloe and rented out those warehouses.

Philip: That's right. And now that Gabi Chic needs them, we'd like them back. Is that a problem?

Jake: No, man. Not at all. The warehouses are all yours, Phil. I'm happy to let them go. They were never mine to begin with. I do care about you, Gabi.

Gabi: I knew it.

Jake: I care about you enough to not want to watch you waste the best years of your life waiting for something that's never gonna happen.

Gabi: What?

Jake: I care about you enough to not want to watch you act desperate and pathetic, chasing a man who's never gonna be yours.

Gabi: Why are you saying all of this to me?

Jake: Because this has to stop, please, now. For me, for Kate, and, most importantly, for you. Do you understand what I'm saying?

Gabi: Yes, I understand what you're saying. Your message is very loud and very clear. Adiós, Jake. I will not be back.

Jake: Look, now that we're living in the same house, we're going to be running into each other quite a bit.

Gabi: Inevitably.

Jake: And I'm just hoping that, um, you know, we can be civil to one another. Hopefully we don't end up fighting every time we run into each other.

Gabi: But we're so good at it.

Jake: [Chuckles] Maybe we could try, huh?

Gabi: Sure, let's try.

Brady: I love Kristen.

Sami: That doesn't actually answer my question. Do you have feelings for Chloe?

Brady: No.

Sami: Oh, boy.

Brady: All right, I know. I do. I do. Sami, I don't know if I didn't realize it. It just kind of-- maybe I just didn't want to admit it.

Sami: For good reason.

Brady: Yeah. I mean, Kristen's the mother of my child, you know. I'm committed to her. I told Chloe that.

Sami: Wait. Wait. What? You told Chloe that you had feelings for her?

Brady: Yeah, I did.

Sami: Have you lost your mind? Why would you do that? What if Kristen finds out? Oh, my God, have you thought this through?

Brady: Excuse me, why do you--

Sami: Do you know how that's going to make Kristen feel?

Brady: Why do you even care? You hate Kristen. You don't like Kristen. You think she's wrong for me in every way. What are you talking about?

Sami: Well, that's all true. I do. But I mean, still, I just--

Brady: Sami, sounds to me like you're trying to convince me to stay with Kristen.

Sami: What?

Brady: What's going on?

Sami: [Scoffs]

Chloe: I know this must be so scary for you, but you have to know that you're not alone. You have your mom and your kids and friends. Have you told Will yet?

Lucas: No, I haven't told anybody. I don't want to tell them.

Chloe: Why not?

Lucas: Because, um... because Will and Sonny are happy right now, you know? And Allie's going through her own thing. And I don't want to walk around here with people feeling sorry for me the rest of my life. That's why I made a firm decision. I'm not going to tell anybody, okay?

Chloe: Lucas.

Lucas: I mean it. I mean it. Please, please don't tell anybody about this.

Chloe: [Sighs] Okay, I promise I won't say anything.

Lucas: Thank you, Chloe. Thank you. I knew I could count on you.

Chloe: Always, but, um... but you said that you didn't want to die alone, so why would you keep this to yourself?

Lucas: Well, I wasn't talking about my family. What I meant was, is, um... I don't want to die without love in my life.

Xander: Just a pleasure doing business with you, Paulina. And you have to agree that $1 million is a small price to pay. What's this?

Chanel: Xander, what's wrong?

Xander: I think you made a little mistake here, Paulina.

Paulina: Well, it would be the first time, but I suppose it's possible.

Xander: You, uh, accidentally left a zero off of this check.

Paulina: I don't accidentally do anything.

Xander: But this check is only for $100,000.

Paulina: That's right.

Xander: We agreed to one million.

Paulina: I didn't agree. $100,000 is my price. And if you ask me, it's 100,000 more than you deserve.

Xander: Now wait a minute here.

Paulina: No, you wait a minute. I've waited long enough. Now, that is my final offer. Now, you take it. You put it in your wallet. You go on your merry way or stay here, blow it all on champagne. But make no mistake, that's all you're getting from me. Now, take it or leave it.

Sami: What? No. Look, I don't like Kristen, and I certainly don't want to be in the same room with her ever again. But you know... [Sighs] I believe in families sticking together. That's important if you make that happen.

Brady: I feel exactly the same way.

Sami: Good, good. So, you won't throw away your relationship because Chloe happens to be nearby.

Brady: I'm not throwing away anything. I was very clear with Chloe that I'm with Kristen.

Sami: Good. But it just seems to me like you haven't let it go.

Brady: Sami, what do you want me to say.

Sami: I want you to tell me the truth.

Brady: You want the truth?

Sami: Yes!

Brady: You want me to tell you the truth? The truth is... the temptation is very much still there.

Lucas: You know, my doctor was going over my blood work, and all I could think about was the things I haven't done in my life, you know, the roads not taken. And at the top of that list was us. I mean, I kept thinking about... what I regret the most, and I really wonder what our relationship would be like if we were still together. [Sighs]

Chloe: [Sighs] Lucas, you know how much I care about you.

Lucas: I know. I know. And I'm very grateful for that.

Chloe: But, I mean, you saw me when I came in. Um... I have really strong feelings for Brady, and... [Sniffles] even though there's probably no chance that anything will happen between us, I can't just turn those feelings off, you know?

Lucas: I understand that.

Chloe: But I will support you in any way I can. I will take you for treatment. I'll keep you company. I'm here for you every step of the way, okay?

Jake: So, I'm going to get going.

Philip: Heading back to the office?

Jake: No, actually, headed out of town with your mother. Kate and I are going on a little vacation.

Philip: Ah, she didn't mention it.

Jake: Yeah, well, it just happened today.

Gabi: Where you going?

Jake: Secluded island, romantic getaway, that sort of thing.

Gabi: Fun.

Jake: Yeah, it will be. So, I'm going to go get packing.

Philip: Right. Hey, on the warehouses...

Jake: They're as good as yours. I'll call Chloe and have her remove the stock immediately.

Gabi: Oh, thank you very much for making this so easy.

Jake: [Chuckles] My pleasure.

Kate: So that's what all this premonition nonsense was about? You're trying to break up me and Jake?

Kristen: That would have solved my Vivian dilemma.

Kate: Why are you even doing that woman's bidding?

Kristen: She threatened to expose me to Brady.

Kate: Okay, well, that sounds like trouble, but, thankfully, I am free of any problems with Vivian.

Kristen: Mm. I know you hate her.

Kate: Well, I actually despise her, and I am relishing the fact that she's behind bars and I'm out here enjoying the spoils of freedom, yes.

Kristen: Yay, good for you.

Kate: And you know something? No offense.

Kristen: Hmm?

Kate: But I am free to fly off to a luxurious island resort with her son, and there's nothing she can do to stop me.

Kristen: Except expose me and ruin my life.

Kate: Yeah, well, why don't you just tell her we broke up? I mean, she's in prison.

Kristen: Oh, my God, Kate. You know she's going to call Jake and ask him.

Kate: Oh, I'm so sorry. I'm really sorry about your dilemma, but there's nothing I can do to help you.

Kristen: Kate, please. If Brady finds out, I may lose him.

Kate: Well, you know, you really should have thought about that before you started this ruse, hmm?

Kristen: You can't do this to me.

Kate: Okay. You know something? This has nothing to do with you at all. It's about Jake and me. We're taking a trip. You can't stop us. So, get the hell out.

[Glass shatters]

[Dramatic music]

Paulina: It's not going to get any fatter from you just staring at it. [Sighs] So what's your answer?

Xander: Fine. I'll take it.

Paulina: That a boy. You're not as dumb as you look.

Chanel: What the hell are you doing?

Xander: Chanel.

Chanel: 100,000?

Xander: That's 100,000 more than I had before, and now we can move on with our lives.

Chanel: Move on with our lives? How? That's only 50,000 each.

Paulina: "Each"? I beg your pardon.

[Dramatic music]

Lucas: [Sighs] I-I'm so sorry that I just laid this bombshell on you.

Chloe: You don't have to apologize, please.

Lucas: You know what? I should go. I should let you process this.

Chloe: Thanks.

Lucas: No, no, thank you. Thank you.

Chloe: And, hey, I meant what I said before. I'm here for you no matter what you need. You call me, day or night. All right?

Lucas: I will. I will. If you ask me, I think Brady is crazy. He has no idea what he's missing. I'll see you later. [Door closes] What the hell did I just do?

Sami: Brady.

Brady: Yeah.

Sami: You are a good guy. And you don't want to hurt anyone. But in situations like this, sometimes that just makes things worse.

Brady: [Sighs] You think I'm hurting Chloe?

Sami: Well, I think Chloe deserves to be with someone who's fully available, right? And not with a man who is committed to another woman.

Brady: Nothing's going to happen between Chloe and me.

Sami: It's easy to say that, but they call it temptation for a reason. Brady, you got to shut the door, right?

Brady: Right.

Sami: Do not leave that opportunity open, okay?

Brady: You're right. You're right. You're right. You give good advice, actually.

Sami: [Laughs] One time, it's okay.

Brady: [Laughs] I got to, uh... tell a story to a little girl in there, so...

Sami: Aw. Give her a kiss from me.

Brady: I will.

Sami: Talk to you later.

Brady: You too.

Sami: [Sighs]

Lucas: [Sighs]

[Cell phone ringing]

Sami: Hey.

Lucas: Sami.

Sami: How did it go? Did you see her? Did you see Chloe?

Lucas: Yeah, yeah, I just saw her.

Sami: So, what did you say? Did you profess your undying love?

Lucas: Well, I wouldn't say "undying."

[Somber music]

Philip: Congratulations on taking the warehouses back from DiMera.

Gabi: [Scoffs] Thank you. It's not exactly a massive victory.

Philip: Well, it's good for Gabi Chic, bad for Basic Black. That's a win in my book.

Gabi: Well, not having to deal with DiMera, that's the win for me.

Philip: Hey, I wasn't planning on heading back to the office. How would you feel about celebrating over dinner?

Gabi: I have a better idea. Why don't you take me back to your place instead?

Kristen: [Grunting] [Sighs] God, Kate... you couldn't make this easy, huh? You had to make it complicated. Now I have to go to plan B.


Jake: Hey, who the hell are you?

Kristen as Susan: Huh?
