Jake: Mmm.

[Chuckles] Isn’t it a little too early to be working?

Gabi: Not for philip. He’s already typing an email. I mean, of course I can see it, because I installed that keystroke software into his computer. Oh, my god, jake, he’s writing an email rig now to titan’s general counsel with the subject in all caps… “confidential.”

Jake: What does it say?

Gabi: “Dear kent, I need your advice on an extremely sensitive matter. It’s imperative that what I’m about to share remains strictly between us. The issue at hand is–”

Jake: Come on, dude! Suspense is killin’ me.

Gabi: He just stopped typing! Come on, philip, what is the issue at hand?

Kate: Okay, we need to talk.

Philip: I told my assistant I wasn’t to be disturbed.

Kate: Yes, well, I assume that doesn’t apply to your mother…who’s here to stop you from making a terrible mistake.

Chloe: Hey.

Brady: Hey, thanks for coming in so early.

Chloe: Oh, not a problem. What’s the emergency?

Brady: It’s not really an emergency, but, uh, the dimera jet is fueled up and it’s on the tarmac, it’s waiting for us.

Chloe: Why?

Brady: Because I’m whisking you away.

Rafe: Mmm. Good morning.

Ava: Morning.

Rafe: I hope I didn’t miss breakfast.

Ava: Coffee’s hot.

Rafe: Refill?

Ava: Nope. I’m good.

Rafe: Kay. I can set the table.

Ava: Oh… you meant you want… breakfast.

Rafe: Well, if it’s not too much trouble.

Ava: Oh, no, no trouble.

Rafe: You, uh…know how to make the italian eggs?

Ava: Yeah, I do. But I decided not to. In case you have plans with nicole.

Roman: We’re not open yet.

Nicole: I, uh, I came here to talk to you. I-I’m sorry it’s taken me so long. I haven’t been in the mood to see people. Roman…

[Sighs] I feel terrible that the party you hosted for me and eric turned out to be such a disaster. I truly am sorry.

Roman: You should be.

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

[Soft orchestration]


Rafe: Again…I am very sorry that I missed dinner the other night. I should have called you and let you know that I was stopping by nicole’S.

Ava: Yes, you should have.

Rafe: Yeah. But she’s your friend too… and she’s going through a really rough time right now, so i just–I assumed that you would be okay with it, that you wouldn’t want her to be alone.

Ava: I didn’t–which is why i offered to bring dinner over to her place, and you told me not to.

Rafe: Well, because she said that she didn’t want company.

Ava: [Huffs] Oh, so I’m company and you’re not?

Rafe: Okay, that–that is not what I meant.

Ava: Okay, then you know what? You better start explaining, because it sounds to me like you think that you’re the only person on the planet who can help nicole.

Rafe: Okay, she said that she didn’t want a lot of people around, okay? She’s depressed. I mean, the girl, she can barely get out of her own bed.

Ava: Poor baby!

Rafe: Oh, my– ava, come on. She’s hurting.

Ava: What–th-that surprises you?

Rafe: No, it doesn’t surprise me, it doesn’t surprise me at all, I mean, I-I would expect her to be depressed, considering the circumstances.

Ava: Yeah, the circumstances which sh– never mind.

Rafe: No, no, no. Go ahead. Finish what you were gonna say.

Ava: Nicole chose to cheat on her husband with xander. It is her own damn fault that her marriage is over.

Roman: Eric… came all the way back from africa to surprise you for your anniversary, only to find out, in public, that you slept with another man–a man you both hate. He was completely humiliated.

[Melancholy music]


Nicole: I made a terrible mistake that I will regret for the rest of my life. But I am not the only one to blame here.

Roman: Wait a minute–if you’re suggesting that eric is responsible here–

Nicole: No, I’m talking about sami. She wanted to blow up my life, so she had xander march in here and make that big announcement, and she didn’t give a damn how much she hurt her brother.

Chloe: So, you’re… whisking me away?

Brady: To new york. A new distributor called. He wants a face to face today.

Chloe: Oh! That’s great, uh, but why do I have to come along?

Brady: [Chuckling] Because you work for me–you’re part of the company. Besides, you’re gonna get to see your family–you’d get to see parker, your parents. I know you miss ’em.

Chloe: I-I do, but–

Brady: So let’s go to the kiriakis place and get your overnight bag, and we’ll get on the road.

Chloe: Brady, I’m not so sure about this.

Brady: What–I mean, you don’t wanna see your family or–

Chloe: No, of course I do, but I don’t–I don’t know if philip would approve of this, you know? You and I jetting off to new york together.

Philip: Is this about me dating chloe?

Kate: Oh, my god, no, it’s not about chloe. It’s about jake. Philip, you can’t bring him on board at titan. He’s an untrustworthy jerk who’s gonna work to undermine you and eventually stab you in the back.

Philip: I understand that you’re…cynical where jake is concerned.

[Kate sighs] But I do not fear that. His own family staged a coup to get rid of him, with you casting the deciding vote, I might add. So, no, I’m trusting that he’s still so angry that he’ll be all in with helping me and gabi crush dimera.

Kate: Oh…really? You do remember that I work for dimera, right?

Philip: We both know that you’ll be working just as hard to crush us. May the best company win.

Kate: You know, I’m really afraid that you’re becoming dangerously naive. I don’t think that you have completely thought out what it means for you to get in bed with gabi and jake.

Gabi: Why did he stop typing? Oh, come on, philip! W-what–

Jake: Maybe he got a phone call or something.

Gabi: I need to see that email. I mean, what if the issue at hand is that he’s in trouble again?

Jake: We don’t know that.

Gabi: But that’s very likely. I mean, think about it, jake. Not too long ago, philip was laundering mob money through titan to clear his gambling debts. What if… what if he’s doing that again, or maybe something worse, and scrambling to try to cover it up? What if this is exactly what we need to get him out of titan?

Jake: Okay, I hope you’re right, but you know what they say about a watched computer, right? Maybe… there’s something else we can do to pass the time.

Gabi: [Sighs] I can’t–I don’t wanna miss anything important.

Jake: Oh, come on, hey, you said this software records everything, right?

Gabi: Yes.

Jake: Okay, so how ’bout you take the computer… and you put it on the bedside table? Huh? And that way, if he starts typing again, you’ll see it.

Gabi: I–

Jake: And we won’t have to sit here staring at the damn screen all morning. How ’bout that?

Gabi: Well, that kinda works.

Jake: Yeah? Oh, but–but…no cameras, because given how you illegally hacked into philip’s computer, I’m not takin’ any chances. Huh?

Gabi: All right.

Jake: Okay.

Gabi: Take it off.

Jake: Oh, I’m gonna. There ya go. Hanger.

Gabi: Very wise.

Jake: Get over here. Before treating your chronic migraine,

Rafe: Pretty harsh way to talk about your friend.

Ava: Nicole is my friend, but it doesn’t change the fact that she broke her vows.

Rafe: Well, she didn’t deserve to have it broadcast at her anniversary party.

Ava: No, she didn’t, but cheating’s a risk, and she knew that eric might find out somehow.

Rafe: Okay. Fine. Can we just put this into context? You know, the night that this happened, nicole got a call from eric. He said that he was extending his stay africa again. She was devastated. She got drunk, she wasn’t thinking clearly, and then xander being the pig he is, took advantage of that.

Ava: Okay. So if somebody cheated on you, you’d just give ’em a pass.

Rafe: No.

Ava: So then how come she gets one?

Rafe: I’m– okay…I’m not saying that it’s okay. All I am saying is that i understand it. And the saddest part about this whole thing is that if we’d have been there for her, it would have never happened.

Ava: Oh, so now it’s our fault.

Rafe: No, of course it is not our fault, I’m just– I am just kicking myself for silencing my phone. I wish that I would have gotten nicole’s call.

Ava: Why? So you could have slept with her instead?

Rafe: [Small laugh]

Nicole: Xander didn’t just decide to tell the whole world about what happened between us. And if I know him, he didn’t do it for free.

Roman: Do you have proof that sami paid him off?

Nicole: No. But sami hounded me for weeks after she saw us walk into the salem inn together.

Roman: She was suspicious. So what?

Nicole: So–[Huffs] She was relentless. And she even told me she would do whatever it took to expose me. And–ask belle. She is convinced that sami set this whole thing up.

Roman: All right. Well, that is hard to hear. Pains to me hear that, uh…

[Sighs] Sami would hurt her brother like that.

Nicole: But not surprising to you, right? Ever since the day eric and i got married, sami has been on a mission to break us up.

Roman: You know what? Even if she was involved, you still cheated on my son. A wonderful, honorable man– the best.

Nicole: I know.

Roman: Yeah, well, if that’s true, and you know what a decent, kind, loving man your husband is, how in the hell could you hurt him like that?

Gabi: That was great, as usual. And now…

Jake: Oh, nice, glad I could distract you at least for a little bit.

Gabi: No, no, no, don’t be upset–I’m just trying to stick to the plan.

Jake: Ah, to, uh…take over the world?

Gabi: Damn right. Jake, I hate what your family did to you. Especially because you were doing such a good job. I’m gonna teach them that messing with us was the biggest mistake they could ever make. And when philip is gone, I’m gonna generate so much profit for titan–more than he could ever–when I take over.

Jake: Mmm. When we…take over.

Gabi: Right. Yes, of course, but you have to understand that the keystroke is not the only thing that’s gonna get us in, okay? You need to have a really good follow-up interview with philip, and he needs to hire you.

Jake: Right. I don’t wanna be late, so i better get in the shower.

Gabi: Kay. You know, maybe I can, uh, wash your back?

Jake: Mmm.

Gabi: And then I’m gonna give you some tips guaranteed to land you that job, okay?

Jake: Okay.

Gabi: Go, go.

Jake: Okay, I’m going. Here we go.

Gabi: Right after you.

Jake: Right after? Right before, right after…

Gabi: [Softly] Just go.

Philip: Gabi chic just had its best quarter ever. And gabi has repeatedly said that she thinks we have a terrific working relationship.

Kate: Well, of course she has.

Philip: [Scoffs] What is that supposed to mean?

Kate: What that means is that that is all part of her plan.

Philip: What plan?

Kate: [Sighs] Okay. First she lulls you into a false sense of security. She makes you feel that she’s content being your underling. And then she’s going to convince you that it would be a good idea to hire her boy toy because he would be so useful in helping you accomplish your mutual goals. And then they’re going to tell you that it’s one for all and all for one, and the whole time, they’re going to be working behind your back to bring you down.

Philip: Wow. Paranoid much?

Kate: Ohh, god, philip, you can’t underestimate gabi.

Philip: Don’t underestimate me. Look, I fully admit that when i started this job, I made some very stupid mistakes that put my family and this company at tremendous risk. So I promise you, there is no scenario where dad or I would allow titan to be run by a pair of dimeras.

> Kate: [Sighs] I know how much it means to you that your father gave you a second chance–I do. But you can’t be comfortable in that…because if he is ever convinced that there’s someone else who can do your job better than you do, he’d have you out in a heartbeat.

Philip: Trust me, I will keep my eyes on gabi and jake. But I’m the one using them, remember?

Kate: Okay. All right. So if…if it’s just information that you need about dimera, there’s better ways to get it.

Philip: From where?

Kate: From your girlfriend, chloe.

Brady: Why would philip have a problem with you taking a business trip?

Chloe: Well, as you may know, um, he’s a little bit sensitive about you and i spending time together.

Brady: I haven’t noticed. Of course I noticed–yeah. What’s he whining about now?

Chloe: Well, you remember eric and nicole’s anniversary party.

Brady: Mm. Was that that party where absolutely nothing happened whatsoever? Is that the one?

Chloe: Yeah, that’s the one. When you went after xander, i insisted on following you to make sure that things didn’t get ugly, and…

Brady: Mm-hmm.

Chloe: I left philip hanging at the pub by himself, and, you know, he just got worried about what you and I might do together alone.

Brady: Well, that would be philip’s problem…not ours. Your mission:

Philip: Pump chloe for information on dimera. I’d never use her like that. And she’d never betray nicole.

Kate: Ohh…well, then, just turn on the philip charm, and I’m sure she’ll tell you everything.

Philip: It’s not happening, mom–did I not just tell you that? Although…

Kate: Although…what?

Philip: It’s just… I did try to get chloe to jump ship…because I thought she would be an asset to titan. But she turned me down.

Kate: Okay. But did you really think she would be an asset to titan, or did you just wanna get her away from brady?

Philip: [Huffs] I lost her to brady once–I’m not gonna lose her again. And she assured me that I’m the one she wants to be with.

Kate: [Laughs] Well, jake assured me of the same thing, and look how that turned out.

Nicole: Forgive me, but I’M…I’m a little confused about your lack of understanding.

Roman: Why’s that?

Nicole: Well, I-I remember you telling me that it was wrong of eric to leave me alone for so long and that if he wasn’t careful, he could drive me into someone else’s arms.

Roman: Yeah, I did say that and, uh, eric shouldn’t have stayed away as long as he did. And I did feel that if another man came along–good man–and pursued you during that time that you were very lonely, that yeah, yeah, I could understand that you would be vulnerable. But we both know that is a far cry from what happened between you and xander.

Nicole: Of course. I’m sorry.

Roman: Yeah, well, I’m not the person you need to apologize to–you should have come clean with eric right away. If you had been honest from the very beginning, you could have spared all of us a lot of pain.

Rafe: I can’t believe you just said that.

Ava: Sorry. Just slipped out.

Rafe: Well, yeah, because you keep twisting everything that i say. When I said I’d wished I’d answered nicole’s call, it was so that she didn’t end up with xander.

Ava: If you had answered nicole’s call that night, you would have bailed on our date and very possibly would have ended up in bed with her.

Rafe: No, you know what, actually, I wouldn’t have. It never would have happened, because I am involved with you.

Ava: Never say never.

Rafe: Okay. You know, we have been over this–we have been over this so many damn times, and I have told you that I do not have feelings for nicole.

Ava: Yeah, and I didn’t believe you then either.

Rafe: Yeah? Okay. So obviously, we have a big problem.

Ava: Look… maybe it was wrong for me to suggest that you would have slept with nicole while she was still married.

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Ava: Her marriage is over, kay? So now I think it’s important that you are just honest with me and yourself about who you really wanna be with.

Rafe: [Softly] Okay. For the umpteenth time, I do not have feelings for nicole. She is my friend.

Ava: The friend you dream about. The friend you drop everything for at a moment’s notice. The friend who always seems to be on your mind. It’s obvious you care very deeply for her.

Rafe: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I do. But that does not mean that i have the desire–

Ava: Oh, my god, stop, rafe! The hell you don’t! Will you just admit that you wanna sleep with nicole? We women are in the know about everything.

Gabi: Oh, I’m sorry. Looks like we interrupted a very personal conversation.

Rafe: It’s nothin’.

Gabi: Doesn’t sound like nothing–sounds like your girlfriend here thinks you wanna sleep with nicole. Did I get that right, ava?

Jake: So did we miss breakfast, or–

Both: Yes.

Gabi: Well, that’s a shame, because jake here has a very important business meeting, and he needs all his energy, so why don’t we sit down–

Jake: No, you know what, gabi, these’ll do, all right? And, uh, let’s go! I don’t like that kind.

Gabi: My apologies again for interrupting your chat, but i did try to warn you.

Rafe: So what exactly did she warn you about?

Ava: Your feelings for nicole.

Nicole: I tried to come clean with eric. I…I even wrote him an email confessing everything I did. But I just…I couldn’t bring myself to send it to him.

Roman: Damn it. God, I wish you had, nicole. If you had, you could have taken care of this in private. Eric wouldn’t have been humiliated in front of everybody he knows.

Nicole: The regret I feel over hurting him–it is killing me. And I hate myself for what i did, but there’s nothing I can do to change it.

Roman: No, there isn’T.

Nicole: Roman, before eric left, we did talk. And we had it out, and he acknowledged, just as you have, that it was wrong of him to put our life on hold.

Roman: So you do blame him.

Nicole: No, no! Never! I would never… but as far as our marriage falling apart… eric and I realized that it was inevitable. As much as we love each other, we’re just different people. People who… people who are better off apart.


Roman: You know what, nicole? That is a nice, nice little story. But you don’t get to put a nice little ribbon on this.

Nicole: I just wanted you to know that… we’ve parted peacefully.

Roman: Yeah, well, like i say, he’s a good man, very kind, very forgiving. But make no mistake–and I know this from first-hand experience– he will live with that pain, the pain you caused, because, uh…you need to know this, nicole. He never loved anyone… never loved anyone the way he loved you. So no matter what those parting words were that he said, truth is, he’ll never be the same. And there will be many, many moments in the coming years where he will think of you and that pain will still be there. That hurt will still be there. And he’ll say to himself, “damn. Maybe I just wasn’t good enough for her.”

Nicole: Once again, you’re right. I’m a terrible, terrible person. And I destroyed eric and i destroyed our marriage, and i deserve to live in misery for the rest of my life.

Philip: I’m sorry you were hurt…but you have to stop comparing my relationship with chloe with what happened between you and jake.

Kate: You’re my son. I’m never going to stop trying to protect you.

Philip: But I don’t need protection from chloe.

Kate: [Scoffs] She has hurt you so many times, and I am not gonna let that happen again.

Philip: Ah, here we go.

Kate: Really, what do you think–do you think that her feelings for brady are just going to magically disappear? They work with each other every single day.

Philip: But she comes home to me at night. And it’s great! We talk, we laugh. I can feel our connection getting deeper every day. It’s only a matter of time before she is really truly mine.

Kate: Okay. Whatever you say. Just don’t forget what I said about jake. If you hire him, you’ll regret it. I love you, philip.

Philip: I love you, too.

Kate: But I’m just looking out for you–you know that, right?

Philip: Yeah…I do.

Kate: Hm.

Chloe: Philip and I are in a relationship, and I need to take his feelings into account.

Brady: His pathetic, infantile feelings.

Chloe: Is it really pathetic and infantile to expect some respect and courtesy from the person you’re dating?

Brady: [Sighs] Since when is it discourteous and disrespectful to go on a business trip with your boss?

Chloe: Um, how about I go with nicole? She knows the client, right?

Brady: Chloe, she knows the client, but she doesn’t deal with him directly, and he’s expecting to see me.

Chloe: Okay, well, here’s another idea. You go with nicole.

Brady: Okay. Why are you fighting me on this? I thought you’d jump at the chance to see your family, i really did.

Chloe: Um, I guess I’m just kinda confused–at first you say it’s about business, but then you’re saying I can see my family, so…what difference does it make who goes if we make the meeting, unless…

Brady: Unless… unless what? Finish the sentence, please.

Chloe: Unless the reason you want me to go with you is because you want to spend some time with me…alone. Is that it? People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes

Brady: Why would I need to be alone with you? I’m alone with you all the time here at the office.

Chloe: Yeah, but this is work, and we’re surrounded by staff. An overnight trip to new york is kind of a different thing.


[Phone rings]

Brady: Hey.

Nicole: Hey, brady, listen, I’m not gonna come into the office today. I-I’m really sorry.

Brady: Uh, no, that’s okay. That’s okay, nic, um…chloe and I got you covered.

Nicole: Thank you.

Brady: Sure. I-is…is there anything we can do to help?

Nicole: That’s really sweet of you, brady, but, um, i just…I really need some space right now, and actually, I think I’m gonna take the rest of the week off.

Brady: No, of course. And, uh, hey, I’m here if you need me. You know that, right?

Nicole: I do, brady. Thank you. Bye.

Gabi: Nicole. You okay?

Nicole: Um… no. And I’m not sure I ever will be.

Gabi: I’m sorry–I heard about what happened at your anniversary party.

Nicole: I’m the one who should be sorry. Because roman made it very clear that I am… the one who brought this hell on to myself and eric.

Gabi: I like roman, he’s family, but he can be a little judgey.

Nicole: But still, he thinks I’m a monster. And I’m sure the rest of this town does too.

Gabi: No, not everyone. Definitely not rafe.

Rafe: Since when do you listen to anything that gabi has to say?

Ava: Normally, I don’T. God knows she’s been nothing but hostile to me ever since I moved in here. But the other day, when she kept insisting that you had feelings for nicole, I kept saying what you keep saying… which is that you are just friends.

Rafe: Which is the truth.

Ava: Is it? Because your sister, who knows you better than anyone, seems to think that the only reason that you and nicole have not been romantic with each other is because she was married.

Rafe: [Small laugh]

Ava: She’s single now. So gabi thinks that maybe… maybe the two of you might decide to take it to the next level.

Rafe: That’s just gabi being gabi. And she’s playing mind games with you. I…can’t believe you fell for it.

Ava: So…hmph. Now I’m clueless and gullible.

[Door opens]

Jake: I can wait outside if you’re busy–your assistant told me to come in.

Philip: No, no, come in. Have a seat. I need to make a decision today about hiring you, so I thought we’d have a follow-up conversation.

Jake: All right, well, my sense is that the first round went pretty well, but I’m happy to clear up any questions or concerns you might have.

Philip: Only one. My mother was just here trying very hard to persuade me not to hire you.

Jake: Ah. For…very personal reasons, obviously.

Philip: Yes, but she has a valid point. She suggested that you were a trojan horse. In “the odyssey,” greek soldiers?

Jake: Yeah, I know what a trojan horse is.

Philip: Yeah, my mother thinks that gabi wants to get you in the door so that you two can team up and take me down. Is she right about that? Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

she wished there was a way to

make it last longer.

Jake: All due respect for your mom, I think she’s reaching. I hurt her, and now she’s trying to hurt me back as much as she can.

Philip: I agree that her perspective is clouded by your breakup. However, she is a very savvy businesswoman, so I can’t just dismiss her theory.

Jake: Fair enough. But I think there’s another reason kate doesn’t want me working here.

Philip: What is that?

Jake: Everything I know about the corporate world kate taught me. Turns out, I’m a much better student than she was anticipating.

Philip: Good enough to run dimera.

Jake: Yeah. They kicked me out, and now… I’m gonna destroy them. And I brought the skills, I got the knowledge and more motivation than you can possibly imagine. That is why kate doesn’t want m working here, and that is exactly why you should hire me.

Chloe: So nicole will be out for the rest of the week?

Brady: Yeah. I told her we’d cover for her. Feel bad for her. She’s really hurting.

Chloe: Maybe I should go find her.

Brady: No, wait, she said she wanted some space, and we should respect that. Course, that also means there’s no way she’s gonna be able to make that trip to new york.

Chloe: So now what?

Brady: I think you know what. There’s really no choice. You and I are gonna have to go together.

Nicole: Rafe is a wonderful friend, and he seems to always find a way to be there for me when I need him.

Gabi: I know what you mean.

Nicole: You know, the other night when he came over, I… I was a mess. And he was so understanding and supportive.

Gabi: Nicole, you know he hates seeing you in pain.

Nicole: Yeah. You know, after we talked, I-i told him he should go and he doesn’t need me blubbering all over him, but he stayed and he made me his macaroni and cheese.

Gabi: Oh, his signature dish.

Nicole: Yeah. He was very kind to stay and share his famous dish with me. But, um, you know, he could have been home, enjoying a wonderful meal that ava makes him. And I felt really guilty.

Gabi: Trust me, nicole, if my brother stayed with you, it’s because he wanted to.

Nicole: Well, like I said, he’s a wonderful friend, but he has his own life, and I’m not gonna get in the way of that.

Gabi: No, please. My brother lives to take care of the people he cares about. You know, I just left him right now at home, and I bet you are still on his mind. Actually, I feel like he–he would be really grateful if you went over there and leaned on him right now.

Nicole: Oh, I-I-I don’t know.

Gabi: Of course, yeah, you know what, it would save him a trip of coming to find you.

Nicole: O-okay, I mean, if you really think so.

Gabi: Of course I think so. Girl, get moving, yeah!

[Both chuckle]

Nicole: Thanks. Thanks, gabi.

Gabi: Yeah! Sure.

Rafe: I never said you were gullible. I just said you shouldn’t listen to a word that my sister says. She doesn’t like you, so she’s messing with you, ava.

Ava: Okay. I don’t like her either. She’s been trying everything she can to get me outta here since i moved in here. But maybe she’s speaking the truth.

Rafe: Ava.

Ava: Rafe, I have been watching… you and nicole for months. And it has been there the entire time… in the looks that you two share, in the moments that I have walked in on you. The other day when I showed up at nicole’s place, I was standing there in the doorway. I was watching you hold her in your arms, and you didn’t know that I was there.

Rafe: I was comforting her!

Ava: I am not questioning your character, rafe. You are the most honorable man that I have ever known. But because of that, you feel like you need to be obligated to stay with me.

Rafe: That is not true–

Ava: No, and it’s–

Rafe: For the last time, it is not true.

Ava: Okay. You can continue to say that, rafe, you can continue to deny it–you can tell me that I’m crazy and that gabi’s just yanking my chain, okay? But it’s not doing either of us any favors for you to continue to deny how you feel about nicole! Excuse me.

Rafe: Wh– I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Philip: I like your confidence, jake. But in my position, I can’t be too careful. I worked very hard to regain my father’s trust. So I can’t hire someone who plans to undermine me.

Jake: Hmm. What does your gut tell ya?

Philip: I was inclined to… give you a shot. But then my mom stopped by, so…

Jake: And raked me over the coals. I get it. Look, man, I appreciate your consideration, I really do, but if you are gonna put my stock in your mother’s opinions than your own instincts, we got nothin’ further to talk about. Thank you very much for your time.

[Uneasy music]

Brady: So I will tell the pilot that we’re on our way.

Chloe: Oh, hang on, uh, you didn’t answer my question. Why do you really wanna take this trip with me?

Gabi: I guess breakfast at home wasn’t very satisfying.

Ava: Go away.

Gabi: I get the funny feeling that’s exactly what my brother wants you to do, now that nicole’s oh so available.

[Knock on door]

[Intense music]
