Provided By Suzanne

Jake: Gabi? Hey.

Gabi: Hey. Come here. You know, before I show you how much I missed you this morning, why don't you tell me how kate took hearing that the two of you are over and that you're with me now? I guess it was pretty bad. You don't even wanna tell me about it.

Jake: Yeah, it was harder than I thought.

Gabi: Yeah, I guess it must have been. I mean, even I feel a little sorry for her, but it's the right thing to do. Don't feel bad for her.

Jake: Yeah, actually, I didn't tell her the truth.

Kate: Well, not so bad for a blind woman. Gabi and jake are just going to have to realize that they are not going to be together. Not on my watch.

[Sighs]

Chad: What are you doing?

Kate: Chad? Is that you?

[Clears throat]

Chad: Did you recognize my voice?

Kate: I'm so glad you're here. I'm trying to put on makeup, but as you can see, it's not going well.

Chad: I think it looks pretty good. And given the circumstances, I would say it looks remarkably good.

Kate: Oh, that's so nice. What a sweet lie. Thank you so much. But since I can't see anything, I know it looks terrible.

Chad: Well, if you can't see anything, then what's with the mirror?

Kate: [Sighs]

Lucas: You're going back to italy with ej?

Sami: Yeah. I think it's what's best for everyone. You and I, we just need to forget about what happened between us and move on with our lives.

Lucas: Forget about what happened?

Sami: Yeah. So I guess now we just need to say our goodbyes.

Lucas: Like hell we do.

Ej: Hello, father. It's been a long time. But as you always said, it's good to be back.

Tony: Ej?

Ej: In the flesh.

Tony: [Laughs]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Tony: Why didn't you tell me know you were coming home?

[Sighs] Prodigal son comes home. Time to kill the fatted calf.

Ej: [Chuckles] Or get takeout.

Tony: How long has it been since we've actually seen each other?

Ej: That depends. Do we count the time that we were housed in that warehouse in nashville?

Tony: Oh, I don'T. I don't even like to be reminded of it. Now, let's drink to the fact that we're both alive and well. Refill?

Ej: It seemed appropriate.

Tony: Well...

[Laughs softly] Oh. To my brother, home where he belongs. Ah.

[Chuckles] Just wonderful to have you back.

Ej: It's wonderful to be back, but I won't be here for long. I'm only here to reclaim my wife.

Sami: Lucas, please don't be-- lucas, about this...

Lucas: I will be whatever I wanna be. And right now, I wanna be the man who talks you out of making the biggest mistake of your life. And believe me, with all the mistakes you've made in your life, and there are a lot, that's saying something.

Sami: This isn't a mistake, lucas, he's my husband. It is the right thing to do. I made vows.

Lucas: Yes, you did. You both made vows. You made vows to stick by him in sickness and in health.

Sami: Yeah, and I did.

Lucas: But he didn't do that for you. He attacked you. He made you pay for his suffering. Why would he do that? He's not living up to his vows. He didn't live up to his end of the bargain.

Sami: Okay, lucas, he was in a lot of pain.

Lucas: He's not in pain now, is he? And he still treats you like you're his property, not the beautiful woman who helped saved his miserable life.

Sami: Okay, he does not treat me like I'm his property.

Lucas: Yes, he does. What's the first thing he said when he came into this room? "It's time to take my wife back home where she belongs." That's what he said. And what happened to his servants? Did they give up on him? Did they quit? Now he needs somebody to stick by him and wait on him--

Sami: That is not why he came back here for me!

Lucas: You and I both know why you came back. You came back here to be with allie, to help protect her, right?

Sami: Yeah.

Lucas: And was he here with you then? No. Did he show up when you had a gun to your head in the dimera mansion? Was he there for you then? No.

Sami: He explained all of that!

Lucas: Yeah, he explained it. He wanted to take you back to your sham of a marriage. That's what he wanted to do.

Sami: You have no right to--

Lucas: I have every right. I held you in my arms while you cried to me and told me how horribly he treated you.

Sami: Look how that turned out, lucas.

Lucas: Yeah, look how that turned out. We made love.

Nicole: I have to get you out of here before anyone sees you.

[Gasps]

Xander: [Grunts]

Brady: What's going on here? The hell?

Xander: What does it look like? I've joined the team.

Brady: Joined the team? It looks more like you're having your ass thrown out by nicole.

Xander: Oh, you know nicole. Always such a kidder.

Brady: Yeah, such a kidder. And you're a jerk. What is going on here? I don't want him in the office. I don't want him anywhere near the building, nicole. We talked about this.

Nicole: I know, I know. I was trying to get him out, actually, so, you know, that you and I can talk privately, and I can tell you that--

Brady: Tell me what?

Nicole: [Sighs] That we should talk about hiring him.

Brady: No, no. We talked about that. That's a huge no, emphatic no. There's no way that's gonna happen. So we've talked about it, you can continue throwing him out now. You're hesitating. Why are you hesitating? Do you really want this con artist/criminal to work here? Is that what you're saying?

Nicole: Actually, brady, I think that we should keep him around.

Limu emu... and doug.

Sami: Yeah, all right, fine! We made love. And it was a big mistake.

Lucas: Such a mistake that we did it again?

Sami: Stop throwing that in my face, lucas. I'm married to ej. He is my husband, and I love him.

Lucas: You're in love with the man who doesn't show you any kind of love at all. Who doesn't touch you. That's what you told me. Those were your exact words. That's what you said.

Sami: Well, he said he wants to change all of that. That's what he said to me when we were alone just now.

Lucas: Why, because he's so damn trustworthy?

Sami: Please stop making this harder than it already is.

[Sighs] What happened between us--

Lucas: What happened twice between us?

Sami: Yeah. Yeah, twice.

[Sighs] Lucas, you and I are connected since we were kids. And we always will be. And those feelings are always gonna be there.

[Sniffles] And this time, they just took over, you know? I care about you. But this ends now. It has to. Please. I'm asking you to accept that.

[Sighs]

Lucas: And again, I say, no way in hell.

Tony: I don't suppose there's any way of convincing you to not go straight back, to stay on for a while?

Ej: Why should I?

Tony: Well, familial feeling, of course.

Ej: Oh, right, of course. And the real reason?

Tony: Well, for you to get the lay of the land. See if you're comfortable leaving the family and the company the way things are.

Ej: Meaning you're not comfortable with the way things are.

Tony: [Chuckles] Well, I never thought of this family as being tranquil. But given the way things are right now--rather chaotic. What with chad stepping away from the company, and kristen on sabbatical.

Ej: [Laughs softly] Sounds much better than on the lam.

Tony: But you heard the latest about jake? Well, you have yet another brother.

[Both chuckle] One we didn't even know about.

Ej: Sired out of vivian alamain, right?

Tony: Yeah, what was he thinking?

[Sighs] What is particularly intriguing about this aspect-- given the genetics involved-- he's a garage mechanic. I mean, that's essentially who he is. I mean, you can put a $3,000 suit on him, you can put a brass ceo plaque on his office door, but he's essentially a garage mechanic at heart.

Ej: Garage mechanics can be useful.

Tony: Not when you're running an international conglomerate. This is not roadside assistance. He just doesn't have that killer dimera instinct.

Ej: Hmm, that is odd. We both know what father was like, and vivian alamain made lady macbeth seem passive. This new brother, what's his name?

Tony: Jake.

Ej: [Sighs] Wouldn't it be. He wouldn't be ceo if shin didn't approve.

Tony: It was shin who got him the job in the first place. He says to me, he thinks that jake is just what the company needs.

Ej: Or just what shin needs to take complete control of it.

Tony: Exactly.

Ej: So why in the hell did chad step away?

Kate: [Clears throat]

Chad: Kate. Kate.

Kate: [Sighs]

Chad: Kate. The mirror? Are you checking to see if you're the fairest in the land? Or could you possibly be trying to pull a fast one?

[Laughs]

Kate: Okay, fine. I'm pretending to be blind.

Chad: Yeah.

Kate: Get over yourself. Aren't you the one who pretended to be dying to get abigail back in your bed?

Chad: Ouch. Pretending to be blind makes you mean.

Kate: Oh, god, don't be so smug. "Kate, the mirror?" Like you're some slash detective moral authority.

Chad: You were looking at yourself in a mirror. Doesn't exactly take a detective to deduce the fact that you're not really blind. But you're right. I am in no position to judge. Why are you pretending to be blind? Does it have something to do with jake?

Gabi: What do you mean, you didn't tell her? I mean, you told her she saw us in bed together, so why didn't you just tell her the rest?

Jake: Because once I told her all that, she forgave me.

Gabi: What? What--no. Kate doesn't forgive somebody stealing her parking space. She's gonna forgive you sleeping with me? She hates me!

Jake: I know, but she said that-- if I really thought that she left me, that she would understand.

Gabi: Having a bit of rebound sex?

Jake: Well, she didn't put it that way, but yeah.

Gabi: Okay. Did you or did you not tell me that you wanted to be with me whether kate was in the picture or not?

Jake: I did. I did tell you that.

Gabi: Then why didn't you tell her the truth?

Jake: [Sighs]

Brady: Why on earth would you wanna keep him around, okay? Is it his fashion expertise? Is it his people skills?

Nicole: [Sighs] Brady. Okay, listen. A former president once said... I can't really remember who it was. Lyndon johnson, maybe?

Brady: This should be good.

Nicole: Okay, stop. But he said it's better to keep him inside the tent than outside the tent, you know?

Brady: No, I don'T. We're on the third floor.

Nicole: It's metaphorical--

Brady: I know it is, nic, but it doesn't matter 'cause the whole thing is just wrong, okay? If he works here, you're gonna have to look at him. You're gonna have to, like, listen to him and see him--

Xander: I'm standing right here, brady.

Brady: Not for long. Don't worry about it.

Nicole: Brady, listen to me. Before xander left titan, he read gabi's proposal for gabi chic, which means he has inside information on a competition.

Brady: Okay, I don't care. You have amnesia. Have you forgotten what this man has done? All the horrible things that he has done to you, to eric? What about eric? How is eric gonna react to this?

Xander: That is a really good question, nicole. What will eric think?

Nicole: [Exhales sharply]

Jake: [Sighs] I was going to tell her the truth, gabi. I started to, but then--

Gabi: What?

Jake: You gotta understand. She is scared, vulnerable.

Gabi: Damn it, jake, she's playing you! Guilting you!

Jake: She's blind, gabi.

Gabi: And milking it for all it's worth.

Jake: Come on. What kind of person would I be if I dumped her while she's down, huh?

Gabi: All right, fine. You're so worried about your reputation, go stand by your blind geriatric girlfriend. I'll be seeing you.

Jake: No, no, no, gabi. What is it gonna take to get it through that head of yours I don't want kate? I want you.

[Both panting]

Tony: So why did chad step away from dimera enterprises? Why does any man step away from a powerful, well-paid job? He wants spend more time with his family.

Ej: Meaning he screwed around and got caught.

Tony: The woman in question wasn't exactly discreet. Her side of the story appeared on the front page of "the intruder." All those graphic details.

Ej: [Sighs] That is the stuff that nightmares are made of. Are he and abigail getting divorced?

Tony: Well, they're trying to keep things together. I know that chad is trying everything he can to get abigail to forgive him.

Ej: He has a lot of groveling ahead of him.

Tony: Yes. Says a man from experience.

Ej: Don't remind me. My affair with abigail almost cost me the love of my life.

Tony: So is everything okay now?

Ej: Of course.

Tony: So then why did you have to appear in person, unannounced, to take sami back to italy?

Lucas: No, I don't accept it. I don't understand why you gotta go back to ej just 'cause he snaps his fingers.

Sami: It's time for me to go home.

Lucas: What kind of home you going to? Are you gonna live like royalty? Live isolated all your life with an entitled jerk?

Sami: Okay, he's not like that.

Lucas: Yes, he is like that. You told me he was like that. You told me that after we made love. And we made love, sami. We didn't have sex. You and I both know the difference.

Sami: [Scoffs]

Lucas: We made love because we wanted each other and we needed each other. And most of all, because we love one another, and you know it just as well as I do.

Sami: Please don't make this harder than it already is.

Lucas: I meant every single thing that I said. And I know I'm right about ej. And when it hits the fan, and it will, well, you know where to find me, don't you? Goodbye, sami.

Sami: Lucas! Thank you for everything.

[Sighs]

[Sobbing]

[Dramatic music]

So with your home & auto bundle,

[Keys clacking]

Sami: [Panting] Mom.

Marlena: Yeah, um, sorry. I'll go.

Sami: No, no, please. We were just saying goodbye.

Lucas: Yeah, actually, I should go. Have a safe trip back home, sami.

Sami: Thanks.

Marlena: Lucas.

Sami: Hi.

Marlena: Safe trip home?

Sami: Yeah. I'm going home to italy today.

Marlena: Oh, I see, okay. Well, I'm sure ej will be happy to see you again.

Sami: He already has, actually. Ej is here in salem.

Ej: I had forgotten how much chatting with members of my family can feel like crossing a minefield.

Tony: It's a simple question.

Ej: I needed to come here to tell her, show her, that if she did come back, it wouldn't be to the same hell she left.

Tony: Hmm. Hell?

Ej: A cold kind of hell. The fire, the burns, they changed me. Or rather, intensified the darker side of my personality.

[Laughs softly] Samantha moved heaven and earth to take care of me. And I was just this black hole of despair. And I took it out on her. Have you ever met anyone with as much fire as samantha?

Tony: [Laughs] Yes, him. But I would say that samantha is a close second.

Ej: I was this close to extinguishing that fire altogether. I took almost all the oxygen out of her life. But when allie needed her, all that fire came back. She was samantha again, and that made me realize what I had been doing to her. What I had let myself become.

Tony: So she's gonna come home?

Ej: Yes. She's packing up right now.

Tony: You must have opened your heart.

Ej: I apologized.

Tony: Oh.

Ej: I needed to.

Tony: Oh, that's good. Mission accomplished.

[Chuckles] Oh, come on. You don't like apologizing. And like a true dimera you did everything you could to get exactly what it is you want.

Jake: Now do you believe you're the one I want?

Gabi: [Sighs] It's not that I don't believe you. It's just I know that you're trying to do what's right for kate while she recovers, but I just think the right thing to do is tell her the truth.

Jake: Okay, and I would if I felt that she was strong enough to handle it. But gabi, to tell a woman who just went blind, maybe permanently, that I'm leaving her? I just feel like I'd be kicking her while she's down.

Kate: Oh, my god. You have been playing me since you came into this room.

Chad: Okay, you're pretending to be a blind amnesiac. Spare me the moral outrage.

Kate: Why are you here?

Chad: Well, when I heard that you came out of the coma with amnesia, I thought, "well, okay, I guess that could happen." And maybe it could cause blindness, but when jake told me that you forgave him, I just thought...

[Tsks] "No, something seems fishy here."

Kate: I really hate you.

Chad: Don'T. I'm on your side. I am. Look, we've always had our differences, but I have always respected how tough you are. And when i saw you with the mirror...

Kate: [Scoffs]

Chad: I started to figure out what you're up to.

[Sighs] Just drop it. Go to the chapel, get miraculously cured. Just stop this stupid game.

Kate: No.

Chad: Kate. Kate, you're kate, okay? You don't grovel and connive to get a man, especially one who doesn't want you. Now, why do you want someone like that, anyway?

Kate: [Laughs] I don'T.

Chad: But... sorry, what?

Kate: I don't want him back. I wanna punish him. And his little dog too.

Brady: I need to talk to nicole privately, please.

Xander: Of course. Nicole, I am so looking forward to our collaboration.

Brady: He touched you. Do you want a shower before we talk?

Brady: Oh, stop it, brady. And stop hammering at me.

Brady: I'm sorry. Nic, is this about eric?

Nicole: What?

Brady: I know you're upset because he keeps not coming home.

Nicole: I'm not upset, brady.

Brady: Yeah? Mm, yeah, you are. Of course you are. You have every right to be. He made a unilateral decision, and now I think you're making one right now. One that would make him very mad.

Nicole: You think I'm doing this to get back at eric?

Brady: Maybe? I think if you bring this animal into this workplace, that may be the very thing that finally brings eric home. And tonight's winning numbers are 18,

Brady: I cannot fathom why you would want xander working here. I mean, his criminal streak aside, the man is small-minded, okay? He could sink this whole ship.

Nicole: [Laughs] Brady, remember when you decided it would be fun to go after victor and blow up titan from the inside to destroy it? You left me high and dry. Do you remember that? And then you needed your job back, and I didn't hold that against you, did I? No. Did I turn you down?

Brady: You've been waiting for a long time to play this card, haven't you?

Nicole: I have. So what do you say?

Brady: [Sighs] What do I say? I say that I made a mistake leaving. I say that I was angry at the time, and I wasn't thinking rationally, and i wasn't weighing all my options, which I think is what you are doing right now.

Nicole: That's not an answer.

Brady: I know. You took me back with absolutely no recriminations, so it appears that I owe you one.

[Knocking on door]

Xander: So, how are we going on in here? Make any big decisions?

Brady: I can't believe these words are gonna come out of my mouth, but apparently you're hired.

Sami: I better go pack.

Marlena: Kind of seems to me like you're leaving as unexpectedly as you arrived.

Sami: I'm sorry about that, mom. I know it's out of the blue, and it's not fair to you after everything that you have done for me.

Marlena: It isn't about me. Just seems that ej swept in, and asked you to go home immediately, and that seems a little high-handed to me.

Sami: I totally get why you would see it that way, but it's not. It's something I feel I have to do.

Marlena: I can see that.

Sami: Ej and I need time together, alone.

Marlena: Darling, I'm not trying to interfere.

Sami: I know. I know you're looking out for me. And you know about the problems that ej and I have been having. But he said out loud-- he came right out and said that he wants to work on them, and I can't say no to that.

Marlena: Well, just...

Sami: Say it.

Marlena: It seems to me like an emotional ultimatum. Seems like he's making a demand on you that-- I don't know, it's kinda hard if you're trying to work things out, don't you think?

Ej: What about you? You're the eldest. You're the obvious choice to take over the business.

Tony: Yeah, I should think so. But I'm happy to help here and there. You see, anna's made it very clear that we are so much happier without me having to take over the reins.

Ej: Oh. How helpful to have someone to tell you how you feel.

Tony: [Laughs] But it's true. I've never been happier than I am now with anna. And I don't have to worry about that job 24/7, you know? It's--no. I don't want the job.

Ej: Even if the garage mechanic ends up destroying father's legacy?

Tony: Yeah. Well, if that's the way you see it, maybe you should be the one to take over.

Jake: Look, I know it's a lot to ask, but it won't be long. Okay? Just until kate gets back on her feet and I can find the best way to let her down easy. Hey, can you live with that?

Gabi: Well, I mean, I'm not happy about it, but I know you think it's the right thing to do, and doing the right thing is part of what makes you, you.

Jake: Thank you.

Gabi: And I know you'll be spending time with her, but it's not like we can't see each other on the side, right? It's not like she'll be able to see us.

Jake: Actually, that might be a problem.

From prom dresses

Xander: Thank you, cuz, for that warm welcome. I'm sure we'll all be one big happy family.

Brady: [Laughs] Actually, I think you're probably gonna screw things up again. Probably gonna have to kick your ass out of here eventually, but until that happy day, you deal with him.

Nicole: Brady.

Brady: Gotta get some air. Bye-bye.

Xander: Oh, don't worry about brady. I'll win him over, like I did you.

Nicole: You didn't win me over. You blackmailed me.

Xander: Can't we put that behind us? Start our new journey? I think you'll find I'm a fantastic partner in the boardroom as well as the bedroom.

Nicole: [Laughs softly]

Xander: [Wheezing]

Nicole: Touch me again, and that punch will be 6 inches lower, got it? Boop!

Xander: [Exhales]

Sami: Okay, well, it looks like I've got everything. That was quick. And please say goodbye to john for me. And I really hope you take me up on my offer to come back to italy and visit me this fall. Oh! You're not done explaining me to me, are you?

Marlena: I'm not just your mother. I study human behavior for a living.

Sami: I know.

Marlena: And I've been sitting here for the last 45 minutes trying to process what I walked in on with you and lucas.

Sami: We were just saying goodbye.

Marlena: Let me ask you a question. You don't have to answer it. Just think about it.

Sami: Okay. Shoot.

Marlena: Did you agree to go to italy to be with ej or to get away from lucas?

Ej: You think I should run the company again?

Tony: Well, I think that's the logical choice.

Ej: Unfortunately, I'm in the same kind of situation as chad. I need to focus on my marriage.

Tony: Well, from where I sit, I always remember you and samantha being the happiest when you were here. She had her family and her friends, you had your family. You had a very challenging but productive job. I think if there's any problem at all, it's all this enforced togetherness. You know, too much togetherness is what? Too much.

Ej: You know, they also say that all unsolicited advice is self-serving.

Tony: [Laughs] Oh, listen. I'm just being open and aboveboard here. I want you back at dimera enterprises. That way I make lots of money and not have those headaches. So, what do you say? You care to make this trip a permanent arrangement?

Chad: [Sighs] So, how long do you plan to keep this up?

Kate: For as long as it's fun.

Chad: And your doctor? Shouldn't he be able to tell the difference between blind and not blind?

Kate: My doctor knows I'm faking it.

Chad: He does? He's just going along with it? Why?

Kate: Well, you see, he had complaints against him. Actually, he's in a very tenuous position here. Some of the board wanted to get rid of him. So I told him either he keeps his mouth shut, or I make sure they do get rid of him. So you see, you are my big problem.

Chad: Me?

Kate: Are you going to out me or not?

Turns out deb's constipation

with belly pain

Gabi: Okay, why would there be a problem with meeting in person? Like I said, this is a big house, and kate would not see us.

Jake: Because it's chad, all right? He's made it pretty clear he wants me to stand by kate.

Gabi: Who cares what chad wants? Since when does he have a say in this?

Jake: Because he's right. If I leave her now, I'm just the bum everybody thinks I am.

Chad: I'm a dimera. I don't rat out my friends. Go ahead, have your fun.

Kate: Oh? You don't have much concern for my victims.

Chad: Well, gabi tried to put my wife back into a mental institution. Go nuts, make her life hell.

Kate: What about your brother?

Chad: Teach him not to underestimate you.

Kate: That's a mistake, right?

Chad: Mm-hmm.

Kate: Can I trust you?

Chad: You don't believe me?

Kate: I need you to look me in my eyes and shake.

[Dramatic music]

Chad: I promise. I won't say a word.

Sami: Why would I be getting away from lucas?

Marlena: I don't know. Maybe to let things cool down a little bit? I mean, that kiss reminded me of something that bogart might have given to bergman.

Sami: Okay, mom, you're imagining things.

Marlena: Am I? Honey, what does kristen have on you and lucas? Why did he fake a brain tumor--

[Knocking on door]

Sami: Okay, that's ej, my husband. The man I'm going home with. Understand?

Marlena: I understand.

Sami: [Inhales sharply] Ej! How was it with the dimera clan?

Ej: I only spoke to tony, he--hello, marlena. It's good to see you again.

Marlena: Even so briefly. I understand that you're going back to italy right away.

Tony: [Sighs] I wonder if you had the same impression I did. Not that I was telling ej anything about the family or the business that he didn't know already. But the outpouring of remorse about his marriage, well. That was a tad studied. Father, you know what?

[Chuckles] I think that we may once again have the ej of the old. The one that we knew and loved.

Sami: I was just telling my mom that we are on our way home.

Ej: We are, but not to italy.

Sami: What do you mean?

Ej: There's been a change in plans. We're staying here in salem.
