[Soft dramatic music]

Brady: Good night.

Chloe: Night.

Brady: Uh, chloe–sorry. Do you mind if I read something? I’m not sleepy. I just–I’m–

Chloe: Oh, for god’s sake, just come sleep in the bed.

Brady: I don’t want to make you uncomfortable.

Chloe: Just stay on your side.

Brady: Are you–are you– only if you’re sure.



Chloe: What are you doing with that blanket?

Brady: Think of it as the wall of jericho.

[Sighs] This is much nicer. Thank you.

Chloe: Sure.

[Brady sighs]

[Tense music]


[Brady exhales deeply]

Johnny: [Sighs] Okay. Uh, she’s not answering your texts. That’s okay, buddy. You just gotta up your game. And…ah. Hey, chanel, it’s me. You know that it’s me because it’s a video of me. Hey, I’m sorry about my sister earlier causing a scene. I just wanted you to look at this face and ask yourself, do I look like a player? No. Do I look like somebody that is aggressive towards women? No, because I’m not at all. I think that women are actually the superior sex and that, you know, we would all be better off if they– if you ran the world, you know? I just think that–

Ej: Quite a performance. I take it that your date didn’t go very well. Hm?

Paulina: Honey, you’re a baker. You gotta be up in five hours.

Chanel: I know, but I’m just trying to figure out how to answer johnny’s text.

Paulina: Whose text?

Chanel: Johnny. Aka giovanni.

Paulina: Oh, right. Giovanni. [Chuckles] Damn, I like saying that. I like saying, “chanel and giovanni” even more.

[Chuckles] Perfect names for a perfect couple.

Chanel: Sorry to disappoint you, but we aren’t any kind of couple, let alone a perfect one.

Paulina: What happened?

Chanel: Allie.

Johnny: Are you jealous or something?

Allie: Don’t be dumb, okay? I’m with tripp, and chanel is my friend, and that’s it.

Johnny: I don’t know if I believe that. And deep down, I don’t think you do either.

Allie: [Sighs]

Nicole: Allie? Allie? Um…

Allie: Hi. Is something wrong with henry?

Nicole: No, no, it’s just that it’s late, and I saw your light on. Is something bothering you?

Allie: Not something. Someone.

Rafe: Good god.

Ava: Nice to see you too.

Rafe: Come on, ava. When a man comes home to find his girlfriend sitting in the dark with a suitcase, he’s not thinking it’s a surprise trip to hawaii.

Ava: No. No, I was waiting to tell you to your face. I’m moving out.

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

[Soft orchestration]


Rafe: What you have seen is that nicole and i are friends, but what you have imagined is more than that.

Ava: I’m not imagining it.

[Chuckles] I–it has been in my face for months, and I just have not wanted to see it because I care about you too much.

Rafe: I care about you too.

Ava: I know that. It’s just not enough. I don’t know when you and nicole became more than friends, but you are.

Rafe: Okay, for the last time, there is nothing going on between us.

Ava: Okay, then how come I saw her in your arms this morning?

Brady: You are not making this easy.

Chloe: Mm.

Brady: Oh.

[Light beeps]

[Sighs] What the…?

Philip: Why am i not surprised? As someone who resembles someone else…

Paulina: So giovanni is really johnny dimera?

Chanel: Yeah, his grandfather called him giovanni.

Paulina: I don’t care if he called him tweety bird. It’s the last name that counts. Dimera… as in dimera enterprises, as in the dimeras who have more money than the gdp of a small country?

Chanel: Mama, you should see the house. And they have a butler.

Paulina: They have a seat on the stock exchange. Oh, girl. [Chuckles] Oh, girl, you done good. You’ve learned from your mistakes.

Chanel: Huh?

Paulina: Mm-hmm, this time, when you set out to snag a rich man, you actually made sure that he really is rich. Not like that xavier person.

Chanel: Xander.

Paulina: Whatever.

Chanel: And I didn’t set out to snag a rich man. I didn’t even know johnny had money when I met him. I just liked him.

Paulina: [Chuckles] Well, if you like him poor, then you must be crazy about him rich. [Chuckles]

Chanel: Yeah, but he’s not. He’s on the outs with his dad. I met him too, ej dimera. Not a warm and fuzzy kind of guy. Like, he won’t give johnny any money for his movie.

Paulina: Well, so is johnny down in the dumps about that? Is that what made things hit the skids?

Chanel: No, things hit the skids because… johnny is allie’s twin brother.

Johnny: First of all, I didn’t blow the date, okay? And even if I did, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal to blow a first date. It’s nothing like blowing a marriage. How is mom, anyway? You talk to her lately?

Ej: No, no, I haven’T.

Johnny: I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that.

Ej: I think I had it coming to me.

Johnny: Still, it was below the belt.

Ej: I haven’t been exactly marquis of queensbury to you. Sorry.

Johnny: I miss her too.

Ej: I know that. And I haven’t made things any easier for you since you’ve been back.

Johnny: No, no, you’ve been a real jerk, whereas I have been, well, as allie put it, “just like you.”

Ej: [Chuckles]

Johnny: It’s not a compliment.

Ej: I didn’t think it was. Are you and allie not getting along?

Johnny: [Laughs] That would be an understatement, but no.

Chloe: Philip, what the hell are you doing here?

Brady: Trying to make an ass out of himself.

Philip: You really expected me to believe engine trouble in the middle of nowhere?

Brady: I don’t give a damn what you believe or what you don’t believe, philip.

Philip: I knew he was pulling a fast one. I was just trying to get here before it was too late.

Brady: Oh, my gosh, this is adorable, chloe. I think he’s here to defend your virtue.

Philip: No. I’m here to make you pay for whatever happened here tonight. It’s laundry truths, with cat and nat.

Brady: What happened here tonight was I tried unsuccessfully to get some sleep.

Philip: Uh-huh? You were distracted by being in the same bed with chloe.

Chloe: Because there was only one room left here, and I can’t let brady sleep in a chair with his bad back.

Brady: Yeah, acupuncture, yoga, pilates, I’ve tried it all; nothing works.

Chloe: He promised to keep his hands to himself.

Philip: Then why didn’t he? You two were like a pair of spoons.

Chloe: We were not.

Brady: Eh, to be fair, you were snuggled up next to me when he walked–

Chloe: Maybe in my sleep.


Philip: At least I got here in time.

Chloe: Damn it, philip. There’s nothing going on here. But instead of trusting me, you fly here in a jealous rage?

Philip: It’s not you I don’t trust; it’s him!

Paulina: Allie’s last name is horton, and you’re saying johnny dimera is her twin? With a different last name?

Chanel: They have different fathers.

Paulina: You said they were twins.

Chanel: With different fathers; it can happen.

Paulina: Well, if anything can happen, it does in salem. So how did you find all this out?

Chanel: Well, tripp thought that the four of us should do a double date, so I said, “great,” because, you know, I wanted johnny to meet allie. And that’s when I find out they were twins.

Paulina: Okay, well, then they’re twins. What’s the problem?

Chanel: Well, remember when you told johnny I had kissed a girl?

Paulina: Mm-hmm, that didn’t seem to bother him.

Chanel: No, but then he brought it up with allie and tripp.

Paulina: Yeah, but they already knew, right? So you’re into johnny. Allie’s into trip. What does it matter?

Chanel: It matters to allie. Johnny and I were back at his place, and allie came barging in, and she went off on johnny.

Paulina: About what?

Chanel: She was saying that he’s nothing but a player, and that I needed to run in the other direction.

Ej: Why would allie have a problem with you dating one of her friends?

Johnny: She said it’s because I’m a player, and she doesn’t want me to hurt chanel.

Ej: I know this is just a first impression, but chanel struck me as a young woman who could hold her own. Why would allie think that she needed her protection?

Johnny: I guess ’cause she’s jealous of us.

Ej: Why would she be jealous of her brother dating her best friend?

Johnny: [Sighs] I don’t know. Maybe because her and chanel had a thing.

Ej: A thing?

Johnny: Yeah, I mean, nothing serious. They definitely kissed, but, you know.

Ej: Are you telling me your sister’s gay?

Nicole: So you had no idea johnny was dating chanel?

Allie: No. And johnny was dating chanel the way a jackal dates a gazelle.

Nicole: Ouch, you think that way about your brother, huh?

Allie: I’ve seen him in action, nicole. All he cares about is the chase. He’s no saint, and chanel deserved to know that, so when tripp told me that johnny and chanel almost slept together, I had to go over and warn her.

Nicole: How did that go over?

Allie: Not great. Johnny got really defensive, furious that I’d ruined their romantic evening, but chanel left, so that was good.

Nicole: She just left?

Allie: Yeah, to let johnny and me have it out or whatever.

Nicole: And how did johnny feel about that?

Allie: He had the nerve to call me jealous, like, about chanel, I mean as if my feelings for her go beyond friendship, which is totally ridiculous.

Nicole: Are you sure?

Rafe: You saw nicole in my arms?

Ava: Look, after I stormed out of here this morning, I… I ran into steve, and it was a good thing because… he was really nice to me. He was helpful, surprisingly so.

Rafe: Yeah, that is surprising.

Ava: He reminded me that, um… when I care deeply for someone, that I can become paranoid and obsessed. He told me I should not do that with you.

Rafe: Didn’t see that coming.

Ava: Neither did I. But I thought about what he said. And I came back here to apologize to you. That’s when I saw you and nicole.

Rafe: [Sighs] Right.

Ava: I was upset, and I walked and walked, and I tried to clear my head, and… talked to tripp.

Rafe: About us?

Ava: No. But the entire time that I was there, I couldn’t stop thinking about us and seeing you with nicole so I decided to come home and pack up my bags. So… you can, um… you can finally be with nicole. Bye, rafe.

Rafe: Ava, ava, please–

[Mutters] You’ve got it all wrong.

[Chuckles] You got it all wrong. I was saying goodbye to nicole.

Ever notice how stiff clothes can feel rough on your skin?

Ava: Goodbye? What do–what do you mean?

Rafe: I told nicole that you and I had a fight about her, and she saw your point of view, and she said that she had been leaning on me too much ever since she lost eric, and that… that wasn’t fair to you.

Ava: She said that?

Rafe: Mm-hmm, and she said that she felt bad about causing the fight between us and she said that, you know, her and I should stay apart so that you and me– so we could, you know, get back on track.

Ava: Wow. That’s very nice of her. It’s not entirely up to her, is it?

Rafe: No.

Ava: What do you want, rafe? Or should I say who do you want? Nicole or me?

Allie: Why would I be jealous of johnny and chanel? I’m with tripp now.

Nicole: I know. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be jealous. You and chanel are close. You shared a lot.

Allie: Yeah, but–

Nicole: Honey, I’m not trying to put you on the spot. I’m just trying to tell you that I understand. I felt the same way when ava told me she was dating rafe.

Allie: Really?

Nicole: Yeah, oh, yeah, and I was really classy about it too. You know, I badmouthed her to rafe, talked about how she was a mafia princess. Not my finest moment. But then I found myself getting all possessive about rafe, and I was… I was jealous of ava being happy.

Allie: [Sighs] You think that’s why I trashed johnny?

Nicole: I don’t know, but I do know that I had to be honest with myself and about how I really felt about rafe.

Allie: I bet he was more than a friend.

Nicole: Listen, you know, I’ve been a mess since I lost eric, and I realized that I– I couldn’t make my stuff an issue for ava and rafe, so I just made the decision to step away from the situation. Look, I’m sorry. I don’t mean to make this about myself, but my point is, you need to be honest about why it bothers you so much that your brother is dating your best friend.

Johnny: No, allie’s not gay. She’s dating tripp.

Ej: Okay, and chanel?

Johnny: No, chanel is not gay either.

Ej: But you said that allie and chanel kissed.

Johnny: Yeah, yeah, they did a couple times.

Ej: So they were just experimenting.

Johnny: I guess. Uh, I mean, allie made it clear to chanel that she just wants to be friends, so…

Ej: Then she shouldn’t have a problem with you seeing chanel.

Johnny: No, no, she shouldn’t, but she does. She’s jealous whether she wants to admit it or not, and that is why she came over here tonight to deliberately make me look bad, try to tell chanel that I’m a player, scare her off.

Ej: [Sighs] Well, given the fact that she’s not here, looks like it worked.

Chanel: So allie told me that johnny’s a total player. All he’s interested in is getting a girl in bed, and then it’s all, “been nice knowing you.”

Paulina: I didn’t get vibe when I met him.

Chanel: Please, you talked to him for all of five minutes. Allie’s known him for her whole life.

Paulina: But I’ve got a sixth sense about people, and I would’ve warned you if I thought that boy was trouble.

Chanel: I know, but I can’t just ignore what allie said. She’s his twin sister.

Paulina: Well, I’d like to think that maybe she’s just looking out for you, or… you know, don’t forget, two of you, you know, you had a thing.

Chanel: Meaning?

Paulina: Meaning is she warning you to stay away from johnny to protect you, or maybe she just wants you for herself.

Philip: I warned you if you touched her, I would kill you.

[Chloe sighs]

Brady: Go ahead and try.

Chloe: Stop it, both of you! Seriously, just stop it! You, this is not funny. And you, you are so far out of line, I could kill you myself. Brady, can you please give us a moment alone?

Brady: Sure. Who needs sleep anyway?

Philip: Chloe, listen–

Chloe: No, no, you listen to me. You’ve crossed a line. Now, you may tell yourself that you’re trying to protect me, but in reality, you are demeaning me. Now, I’m not gonna let your stupid jealousy dictate how I live my life, and if you can’t get past that, then we are through. You got it? To be a thriver

Philip: I got it.

Chloe: Philip, I made a commitment to you, but you got on a plane in the middle of the night and flew to the middle of nowhere because you don’t trust that i can keep that commitment.

Philip: I don’t trust brady.

Chloe: Well, I do. Deal with it.

Philip: [Sighs] Chloe… it’s like brady, he knows how to punch all my buttons. He makes me crazy. I do stupid things sometimes. And I realize now that it makes you think that I don’t trust you, but I do, and I swear… I’ll get over it. I’ve learned my lesson. Now, let’s get out of this god forsaken place.

Chloe: And go where?

Philip: I have a working jet. I’ll take you to new york. Titan has a corporate suite.

Chloe: What about brady?

Philip: He can stay here until his plane gets repaired, meet you in new york tomorrow.

Chloe: Uh, brady and i traveled together on a business trip. I’m not leaving him.

Philip: Okay. He can come with us.

Chloe: No. You can go home, and brady and I will stay here.

Philip: You want me to leave you alone in the same bed with brady?

Chloe: Yeah. Because you trust me, right?

Rafe: What I want is for us to be honest with each other. And I realized that… I think that things between me and nicole got a little more intense than I thought, and… you know, we’re really close, and she was going through hell, and I think that… there was a time when I thought about her maybe as more than a friend. But I don’t think that it would eric not thought that god needed him on the other side of the world and left nicole for a year. I… I don’T. But I do understand how that upset you.

Ava: It’s in your dna to take care of the damsel in distress.

Rafe: Yeah, well, she’s a friend and… she’s unhappy. I was just trying to help her.

Ava: But you ended up falling for her.

Rafe: Uh, okay, okay, you know what? Okay. So maybe I had some thoughts that, um, a friend shouldn’t have for another friend, you know?

Ava: Yeah, I do. I do.

Rafe: Okay. But I never acted on them. Can you honestly standing there look into my eyes and tell me for, as long as we’re going out, however long that that is, that you would never be attracted to another man? And if you were, would you just give up on everything and throw everything away, not try and work things out?

Ava: [Sighs]

Rafe: Yeah. So listen, like I said, nicole, she felt really bad about everything that happened, and we decided that we’re gonna stay apart from each other so you and I can… so we can work things out. Unless, of course, you don’t want that.

Allie: I really thought I was protecting chanel.

Nicole: [Chuckles] You know, she doesn’t really seem like the kind of girl who needs a lot of protecting.

Allie: Yeah, you’re right. I guess I was just telling myself that. God, maybe I was jealous.

Nicole: It happens.

Allie: [Sighs] I feel like a fool. Ugh, and what is tripp gonna think? I ditched him here to go stop chanel from sleeping with johnny.

Nicole: You and tripp have been through worse things.

Allie: And chanel. She was great when I chose tripp over her. How am I gonna fix all of this?

Chanel: You think allie’s jealous of her own brother?

Paulina: I think she’s still into you. You’re fabulous, I know.

Chanel: It’s true.

Paulina: [Chuckles]

Chanel: But she had her chance with me, and she didn’t take it. She said she just wanted to be friends.

Paulina: Friends don’t tell friends who they can and cannot see.

Chanel: I know, but… I’ve had boyfriends as long as I can remember, but I’ve never had a friend like allie. Maybe I should stop seeing johnny.

Johnny: The thing is the way I would hear allie talk about chanel and chanel talk about allie before I knew who they were talking about, sounded like they’re really tight.

Ej: Apparently.

Johnny: No, I mean, like, they’re friends. Chanel trusts allie, so I think she’s gonna believe what allie said.

Ej: Prove her wrong.

Johnny: How? I mean, saying “I’m not a player” is exactly what a player would do.

Ej: Don’t talk about it, but see chanel as often as you can without coming close to making a move on her. Talk more about her than you, ask her questions about her business, what she wants to do next. Make her see that you don’t just wanna get her into bed.

Johnny: But what if she doesn’t want to see me at all.

Ej: Well, I think she’ll want to form her own opinion of you without being swayed by allie even if they are close. But you should probably go slowly with this to begin with. Give her a little breathing space.

Johnny: I can’t believe I’m talking about this with my dad.

Ej: There once was a time when we would talk about everything. I miss that.

Johnny: Yeah, me too.

Ej: Maybe that’s why to come work at dimera. Maybe if we worked together, we can have that back again.

Johnny: [Chuckles] Yeah.

Ej: What’s funny?

Johnny: I’m just trying to figure out which one of us is the player here. Advil dual action fights pain 2 ways.

Ej: What’s that supposed to mean?

Johnny: That all of your parental concern tonight was just a ploy in order to reel me in and get me to do what you want me to do.

Ej: I was not trying to reel you in. I was trying to talk to you.

Johnny: To get what you wanted.

Ej: Yes, yes, to get what I wanted. I want you to know what it really means to be a dimera. It’s not money. It’s not power. It’s family working together. It’s our connection to him.

Johnny: I’m sorry. I just don’t really think I’m the company kind of guy. I’m a filmmaker.

Ej: No, you’re not. You’re a rich kid playing with his phone. Masking movies is a pipe dream. Do you really think chanel is going to fall for a guy who has a dream and can’t make it happen?

Paulina: You want to walk away from a boy that you really like because that’s what allie would want you to do?

Chanel: I’m trying to do the right thing.

Paulina: When I met abe, I probably should have walked away from him too because of his past with tammy, but we both felt that we had something.

Chanel: You also felt he had power with the zoning board.

Paulina: Yes, you’re right. I almost screwed that up, but abey forgave me because we do have something real, and you and johnny, you can have something special too.

Chanel: Yeah, but what if it ends my friendship with allie?

Paulina: Well, if she’s really your friend, that won’t happen. You have a right to be happy, and you don’t need anyone’s permission for that. As long as you don’t step on others, never be afraid to go after what you want.

Nicole: You and tripp are gonna work this out.

Allie: But what about johnny and chanel? I mean, I don’t know how I’m gonna face either of them.

Nicole: Allie, you had a bad night. You messed up. So have they. But you have been a good friend and a great sister, and there’s no way they’re gonna wanna lose you any more than you wanna lose them.

Ava: [Sighs] Um…

[Sighs] I want to be with you… more than anything. Not if you want to be with nicole.

Rafe: Right, uh… honey, one day, I’d like to be friends with nicole again unless, of course, it makes you uncomfortable.

Ava: Rafe, I am not trying to control you. Your feelings are your feelings.

Rafe: I know. Um… that’s not–I was honest with you about nicole, and… now I want to be honest with you about you. You… you are the woman that I want to be with. Okay? I do, you know? Hopefully, we can get past what happened. Yeah?

Ava: [Chuckles]

Rafe: You think you can do that? Hm?

Philip: I do trust you.

Chloe: Then act like you do.

[Knocking at door]

Brady: Sorry, the 15-year-old night manager informed me that waiting in the lobby, as I was, is loitering, and she was gonna call the cops, so…

Chloe: That’s okay. Philip was just leaving.

Brady: Oh, that’s a shame ’cause I hear they got a hell of an omelet station at the breakfast buffet tomorrow.

Philip: I hope you have a productive meeting tomorrow. I can’t wait for you to come home.

Brady: Well… you wanna try this again?

Chloe: [Sighs]

[Tender music]


Ava: I do want to be with you.

Rafe: Okay. Okay, then you… I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.

Ava: [Chuckles] You know, it’s just that, um… I’ve never felt with any other man the way that I feel with you. And so when I knew that you wanted her, it just… it just hurt.


Rafe: Yeah. Do you know what? We can make this work. I think we can, and… every couple has its share of ups and downs, right? I mean, they have since the beginning of time. It’s just…how you deal with the downs that matters. Right?

Ava: Yeah, well, I deal with the downs by screaming and threatening to move out.

Rafe: Yeah.


Ava: [Chuckles] Can you deal with that?

Rafe: Maybe, like, half the time.

Ava: [Chuckles] Rafe…

Rafe: Yeah?

Ava: Can you take my bag up for me? I need to unpack.

Rafe: I thought you’d never ask.


Nicole: Okay, listen, you and I should get some sleep.

Allie: Yeah. Thank you for listening. And for everything you’ve done for me and henry.

Nicole: It’s my pleasure. Look, honey, you are gonna get through this. I know it. You sleep tight.

Allie: Okay.

Paulina: [Chuckles] Oh, I know I’ve been tough on you, but never doubt how much I love you.

Chanel: I love you too, mama.

Paulina: [Chuckles] Oh, mm, mm.

Johnny: No, you’re wrong ’cause if there is anybody who understands what it’s like to have a dream, it’s chanel. She wanted to start her own bakery, and she didn’t let anyone or anything get in her way. So I’m gonna make my movie, and when my film opens, chanel’s gonna be right there with me.

Ej: Mm. Well, when she wants nothing to do with you, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

[Dramatic music]

Brady: What are you doing?

Chloe: Isn’t it obvious? I’m making a bed on the floor. My back is fine.
