Gabi: Okay, do your thing.

Jake: Something smells good.

Gabi: Oh, tamales. I have one batch in here. Try this.

Jake: Ooh. That is good!

Gabi: That’s my mom’s recipe.

Jake: Mmm! Is that why you came home early?

Gabi: You know, I am sick and tired of ava’s italian food. Tonight, we’re gonna have a fiesta mexicana.

Jake: Oh, okay. Well, it’s gonna be a real celebration because I just got some good news.

Gabi: I love good news.

Jake: Well, while we’re sitting here tasting tamales, somebody is paying a visit to his grandfather.

Brady: So why were there four big black sedans peeling out of the driveway like they were in some stock car race or something?

Victor: I had a few of my boys over for a celebratory luncheon.


Victoell, I figured you were spending all your lunch time with ej dimera these days.

Brady: [Imitating ej] How dare you say that to me?

[In normal voice] What are you guys celebrating?

Victor: What do you think? Bonnie lockhart out of this house and into the slammer where she belongs. One down, one to go.

Brady: Chloe?

Victor: Chloe.

Brady: Grandad, you’re gonna have a harder time than you think getting rid of her.

Victor: And how do you know that? Is she confiding in you now that you’re both working for the enemy?

Philip: Knock knock.

Chloe: Hey, if you came to check up on me, brady’s not here.

Philip: Do I look like I came to check up on you?

Chloe: Well, at this point, it’s kind of a foregone conclusion.

Philip: Okay. I know I’ve had brady on the brain, but I’m not here to see if he’s around.

Chloe: Mm, right.

Philip: It’s true. I’m here to take you away from all of this.

Xander: Oh, come on. Come on, justin. Don’t give me that. You’re bonnie’s lawyer. Just make her sign something that says that the million that she stole belonged to me. Well, then talk the D.A into giving it back to its rightful owner. What do you mean I’ll have to wait? Justin, I am flat broke and living on credit. If I don’t get that money soon, the cops are gonna come bang–

[Knock at door] On the door.

Abigail: Hello, gwen.

Gwen: Abigail? Nobody told me that you were back.

Abigail: No one knows. Well, I mean, you do now.

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

[Soft orchestration]


Gwen: So… when did you get in?

Abigail: This morning.

Gwen: If you’re looking for jack, he’s not here. Abigail: Actually, I came to talk to you.

[Knock at door]

Jack: Xander? It’s jack. Are you in there?

[Phone beeps]

Xander: Jack. Sorry, I thought you were the front desk. I’m a bit behind on the rent this month.

Jack: You’re looking pretty stiff.

Xander: Never could fool you.

Jack: Don’t tell me the inn started sending hired muscle to collect.

Xander: No, I just fell off my skateboard. I’m surprised to see you.

Jack: I’ve come to say I’m sorry.

Gabi: Do you think brady’s gone to see victor to get him to dump phillip?

Jake: We can only hope.

Gabi: How do you know where brady is? You’re having him followed?

Jake: Let’s just say I’m keeping tabs on the situation.

Gabi: How?

Jake: You don’t need to know.

Gabi: What am I, the little woman?

Jake: Well, you are a woman who has a reputation for causing trouble. So, let’s just say I’m looking out for you.

Gabi: All right, I guess I get that. Just have to fantasize about victor getting an earful about phillip’s failings.

Jake: He will.

Gabi: Can you believe brady and philip are fighting over chloe? It’s only a matter of time before phillip is out and you and i are running titan industries.

Jake: Hmm.

>>Ava: Ugh! Do you have to do that in the kitchen? Get a room, why don’t you? I’ve got moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Gabi: Get a room? This is my house. I can kiss jake anywhere I want.

>>Ava: There is a little thing called common courtesy.

Gabi: Oh, where did you learn courtesy? Was it from cousin angelo or some other mob relative?

>>Ava: I live here too.

Gabi: Until rafe gets wise enough to kick you to the curb.

>>Ava: Rafe isn’t gonna kick me anywhere, no matter how much you have tried to change his mind. You see, I can offer him something that you, little sister, never can.

Brady: My company is run by dimera enterprises.

Victor: Yeah, don’t remind me.

Brady: But nicole and i run basic black as we see fit.

Victor: And you saw fit to hire xander?

Brady: No.

Victor: Listen, I know you’re crazy about the guy, nicole too. But whose choice was he? His lawyer maybe, ej dimera?

Brady: Okay, okay. Look, I didn’t come here to talk about my business decisions with you.

Victor: No, just remember there’s always a place for you at titan.

Brady: Thank you for that. I appreciate that.

Victor: That place won’t be in the ceo’s office. That’s taken up by your uncle phillip. And I must say he’s doing an excellent job.

Brady: Well, philip and the excellent job he’s doing is precisely why I’m here.

Chloe: Well, the last thing I expected when I saw you in the doorway of my office was for you to whisk me off for a romantic picnic.

Philip: Then I haven’t been doing things right, but that’s gonna change.

Chloe: Oh.

Philip: Do you remember this place?

Chloe: Of course, I do. We used to come here all the time in high school. I remember how cute you looked when you were driving your little car. I remember screaming about how much I loved being a kid. And I loved having my first boyfriend especially someone like you. Yeah. Gosh, I remember feeling so happy and so free, you know.

Philip: Me too. And we pulled up over here.

Chloe: Oh, and you remember we carved our initials into that tree.

Philip: Not an original thought.

Chloe: But a wonderful thought.

Philip: It was right over there.

Chloe: Yeah. That’s where it used to be. And then you chopped it down.

Gwen: I don’t know why you’d want to come and see me.

Abigail: I have something that I’d like to say. I still feel very responsible for the fact that you lost your baby.

Gwen: All right, I’m listening.

Abigail: I just have had a lot of time to think over the course of the last few months. And you pushed me to my limit. You did. But I’m not proud of the way that I reacted.

Gwen: How so?

Abigail: You know, when you came and you told me that you had slept with chad, I was obviously very hurt and very angry. And so, I pushed chad away and I became someone that I didn’t know, or even really like very much, you know? And then you told me that you were pregnant and I hit rock bottom. The only thing I could think about was the fact that I did not want you to have that baby.

Gwen: I remember. You were ready to tie me up and deliver me to the abortion clinic.

Abigail: I didn’t see your baby as a person then. I just saw her as a symbol of all of the things that chad had done to me. So, on the day that you fell, you know, you came into the bedroom and you’re looking for him. And all that I could see was just a lifetime of you and your baby taking him away from me and my kids. So, I followed you to the top of the stairs because in that moment, stopping you from finding him was all that mattered. And I didn’t care what happened to you and your baby. And I’m really ashamed of feeling that way. Your baby was a human being. It was a child that you wanted to have, that you are likely still grieving for. And regardless of our history… you deserved a chance to be her mother. You did not deserve to suffer all of the pain. And so, I came here today to tell you, mother to mother, I am so deeply sorry.


Xander: You’re saying sorry to me?

Jack: Gwen told me the truth.

Xander: Did she?

Jack: She said that the story that you gave me about you pressuring her to deliver drugs was something that you made up to cover for her. Well, that’s one of the most honorable self-sacrificing things that I have ever encountered.

Xander: Oh, come on, jack, dial it down.

Jack: That’s just the truth. I am ashamed of the vicious things I said to you. I’m sorry about the op-ed piece that I wrote. The spectator will print a retraction–

Xander: No, just stop. You gotta stop beating yourself up. I can be very convincing when I wanna be.

Jack: I hope you can forgive me.

Xander: Forgive you? You’re my mate. And you should know getting tossed out of people’s houses, that has happened to me before. I just knew what you mean to gwen; I really wanted her to stay in your good graces. I was afraid that, you know, if you knew the truth, about what she did, you’d never able to get past it.

Jack: Gwen told me everything.

Xander: Really?

Jack: And I told her, I understand. Pool floaties are like whooping cough.

>>Ava: You went out of your way to make me suspicious and jealous of rafe and nicole, and then you didn’t stop there. Rafe told me that you purposely steered nicole in his direction.

Gabi: If you and my brother are as devoted as you claim to be, nothing I said should have mattered.

>>Ava: Did you not get this out of your system in high school? I mean, what is it with you? What do you have against me?

Gabi: For one thing, I know how you treat people like steve and kayla.

>>Ava: I am not that woman anymore.

Gabi: You know, my brother is one of the most decent people on this planet. He can do way better than you.

>>Ava: And you can do so much better than being with a woman who tries to give julie williams a heart attack by messing with her pacemaker and conned your brother, chad, into making him believe his wife should be in a–

Gabi: You know what– you did your homework, didn’t you?

Jake: I know all about gabi. She’s not that woman anymore either.

>>Ava: Oh, okay. Well, if you’re so forgiving then, how come you ended things with kate? At least she had some class.

Victor: You wanna talk to me about philip?

Brady: Look, I know better than to try to tell you how to run your business. But you should know that phillip’s focus is not on titan anymore.

Victor: Oh, what’s it on?

Brady: Me. Actually, he can’t stand the fact that chloe and I are working together and it’s driving him nuts. He’s obsessed.

Victor: Obsessed how?

Brady: I’ll give you the most recent example. Chloe and I, we had a meeting in new york. We were on our way. Corporate jet had engine trouble and we had to make a forced landing.

Victor: The dimeras can’t even maintain their own jet?

Brady: We had to spend the night in wilkes-barre. When philip found out, he got so jealous that he commandeered the titan jet, tracked us down in the middle of nowhere.

Victor: Well, he was worried about you. You are still family.

Brady: Grandad, he doesn’t care about me. He wanted to catch chloe and me in the sack.

Victor: Are you and that tramp still–

Brady: No, but philip is convinced that there’s something going on between us. Grandad, you know his history; you know he gets jealous and he gets crazy with all of that.

Victor: Over chloe lane?

Brady: You didn’t see that coming?

Victor: All I know I should never let him move that tramp into this house.

Brady: Well, all he is thinking about right now is chloe and it’s only a matter of time before that affects the business. He’s spending more time in my office than his own.

Victor: That’s a situation that’s about to change.

Philip: I saw you with brady. I heard you two talking about how you slept together. I had to face that things were over for you and me. So, I grabbed an ax, I went to our tree and I chopped it down. Can you believe I did that? I wasn’t even thinking. I was just seeing you and brady in bed together.

Chloe: Well, I kind of feel like you still feel that way.

Philip: Yeah. I made an ass of myself in pennsylvania. You must have felt like it was history repeating itself.

>>Chole: You know, I was kind of surprised why you’d even invite me here today, you know?

Philip: I did that because of the history. Which is almost ancient history.

Chloe: Well, we’re not that old yet.

>>Philp: I’m still young enough to change my ways, chloe. I can fix my old mistakes.

Chloe: Oh, yeah? How are you gonna do that?

Xander: You know the truth about gwen and you have no problem with it? Jack, I have to say that is very big of you.

Jack: No matter what gwen’s done, she’s still my daughter. And since she’s been living with me, I’ve come to understand her and love her. You really thought that I’d judge her for something in the past?

Xander: Well, you say you love gwen, I believe you, but abigail’s been your daughter her whole life. You must love her more. And now that you know what gwen did–

Jack: I don’t understand. What does abigail have to do with gwen being a prostitute?

Gwen: Thank you for your apology, abigail.

Abigail: Of course.

Gwen: I actually have to apologize to you about something as well.

[Sighs] I was so furious when I lost the baby. I blamed you for my miscarriage. I understand now, though, you did not consciously try to hurt me or the baby. Which is why I have to tell you something that you don’t know. And I think when you hear what I have to say, you will realize that you don’t have a need to be sorry.

Get ready. It’s time for

the savings event of the year.

Xander: So, gwen told you she was a prostitute?

Jack: It was a long time ago, before she met jake. I hope you’ll keep that to yourself.

Gwen: Okay, if you don’t like my idea, what’s your clever idea then?

Xander: I’ve got it. Tell him you used to be a hooker. Tell jack that snyder was one of your clients. I can’t believe this.

Jack: I thought you knew. I thought that’s why you were covering for it because you were afraid that I might cut off my relationship with her if I found out.

Xander: Yeah. I mean, well, jack, it’s just that when she and I discussed it, she always used the term escort.

Jack: I don’t see what any of this has to do with abigail.

Xander: Well, you know, gwen’s always comparing herself to abigail or, you know, calling her the good daughter. And she was just so sure that if you found out the truth then gwen would always be, in your eyes, the bad daughter, so.

Jack: Oh, I see. For a minute there, I thought you were trying to tell me that abigail had been a prostitute too.

Xander: No, nothing like that.

Jack: But for the record, I’ve always made it a policy not to show favoritism to abigail or jj. And I’ve included gwen in that too. They’re all equal in my eyes.

Xander: I know you’re a loving father, jack, and the good news is now gwen knows it too.

Abigail: Why shouldn’t i be sorry?

Gwen: Well…

[Sighs] Because I spent weeks telling everybody that you pushed me down the stairs and you and i both know that that’s not true. I lost my balance and I fell. Jack knows that, I told him.

Abigail: And dad told chad and chad told me.

Gwen: Oh.

Abigail: I do appreciate you saying it though. It means a lot. And although I didn’t push you, I could have told you where chad was at and left it at that. Had I not followed you to the top of the stairs and grabbed your arm, you’d probably be nine months pregnant right now. But instead, we have to live with the consequences of that day for the rest of our lives.

Gwen: I know how much it’s taken for you to come here today, I do. I’m really sorry that you have to live with all that guilt. I know what a heavy burden guilt can be.

Gabi: I don’t have enough class for you, mafia princess?

>>Ava: Your brother knows my history and how hard I’ve worked to put it behind me for the sake of my son. And we’re stronger than ever.

Gabi: Really? When was it that I walked in on you accusing rafe of wanting to sleep with nicole? Was that– yeah, two, three days ago.

>>Ava: I’m a passionate person. I lost my temper. I lashed out, I shouldn’t have. But the important thing here, gabi, is that rafe understood. We worked everything out.

Gabi: Until the next time that you lash out, which you and I both know you will. It’s not like nicole moved to timbuktu.

>>Ava: You know, speaking of time, I mean, rafe did say that the two of you were only here temporarily. So, if you’ve got such a big problem with rafe and me being together, why don’t the two of you find someplace else to live?

Chloe: Oh, my. Oh, okay, let me guess. You are giving up corporate life to become a gardener?

Philip: Are you laughing at my symbolic gesture?

Chloe: And what exactly does it symbolize?

Philip: Me. Fixing the mistakes of my youth.

Chloe: With the tree? Okay, where exactly did you find that tree?

Philip: I got it at the garden center. It was in my trunk. I thought we could plant it today in the same spot as our old tree.

Chloe: Seriously, you want me to help you dig a hole in this dress?

Philip: Come on, give me a break.

Chloe: I’m sorry, I’m sorry.

Philip: I know I can’t erase the mistakes of the past, but I’m hoping that it can be the start of a new, better beginning for us.

Brady: What situation is about to change? Are you thinking about removing philip as ceo?

Victor: No, of course not. Problem is chloe lane as I always knew it would be. There’s only one way to get phillip’s head back into the business.

Brady: How would that be?

Victor: Remove chloe lane from the equation. Simple as that.

Brady: What do you mean, kick her out of here?

Victor: No, I won’t have to, not once you steal her away from philip.


Gabi: Did you hear that? The lady of the house would like us to move out.

Jake: I did hear that.

Gabi: You know what?

Jake: What?

Gabi: I’m pretty much over this bitch’s crap.

Jake: I can see that.

Gabi: You know what? All right, let’s start packing.

Jake: What, now?

Gabi: Yes, right now. We are leaving right now. Come on, let’s go. What, are you not gonna come?

Jake: Well, yeah. What about the tamales?

Brady: I thought I just heard you tell me to go after chloe?

Victor: Right. From what you say, phillip won’t give up on that tramp by himself. But if you go in, sweep her off her feet, he’ll have no choice other than to go back to work.

Brady: You seriously want me to make a play for chloe?

Victor: You’re repeating yourself.

Brady: It’s understandable, given the vitriol that you’ve been spewing about chloe over the past 20 years. I mean, you hate her.

Victor: Of course I do.

Brady: Yet you want me to go, what did you say, sweep her off her feet?

Victor: No, I don’t want it. But if you’re occupied with chloe, you’re not likely to make another stab at that mental case.

Brady: All right. This conversation is going in a place that I didn’t mean it to, all right?

Victor: You gotta learn to roll with the punches, boy. Now I want you to go out, find chloe and seduce her until she cracks.

Philip: I think this tree is going to be magnificent one day.

Chloe: I think so, too. Now, did you happen to bring any hand wipes or anything?

Philip: Come on, this is a major moment. Someday we can carve our initials into this tree.

Chloe: Yeah, if our arthritis isn’t too bad by then. Come on, do you know how many years it’s gonna take for this tree to be big enough for us to carve anything into it?

Philip: I know, I know. But that’s another reason I wanted to plant it. I wanted to show you how much faith I have in us. We’re gonna be together a long, long time.

Gwen: I know I’ve given you good reason to despise me. And I do know that you did not intentionally try to hurt me or my baby. Abigail, I sincerely hope that you and chad can just move past all of this.

Abigail: Thank you. And thank you for accepting my apology.

Gwen: Of course. It’d be rather awkward if I held a grudge now, wouldn’t it? Since you’re back, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a certain amount of one another, family gatherings and such.

Abigail: Yeah, yeah. Right, yeah. I’m just glad everything’s out in the open. I can’t stand letting things just fester.

Gwen: Yeah, of course. Absolutely.

Abigail: Well, I’ll be going.

Xander: I’m just so glad you get why I thought I had to cover for gwen. I really hated being on the outs with you, jack.

Jack: That’s over. I’m impressed that you didn’t hesitate when you thought I might turn my back on her, even though you must have known that would mean the end of the friendship between us.

Xander: Well, she would’ve lost her dad and that’s more important.

Jack: I really let you have it and you took it on the chin. Makes me wonder why you put up with all that for gwen’s sake.

Xander: Oh, you know, I got to know her a little bit when we lived under your roof.

Jack: I just have to say there seems to be something between you that’s a little bit more than casual friendship.

Xander: What are you getting at, jack?

Jack: As a protective father, I have to ask you, what are your intentions toward my daughter? Did you know faded, dingy, and rough fabrics

Xander: My intentions?

Jack: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to say it that way. I just wondered, are you interested in gwen?

Xander: Well, I mean–

[Knock at door] It’s the front desk.

Gwen: Xander, are you here? My god, you look awful.

Xander: No, I’m fine. Come in.

Gwen: Hi. You’re limping. Why are you limping? Jack, I didn’t expect to see you here.

Jack: It’s all right. I came here to apologize to xander for the way I treated him and he was gracious enough to accept my apology.

Xander: Me, gracious, first time for that.

Gwen: I’m glad for you. I just–I wanted–

Jack: You know, I’m thinking I should be going.

Gwen: You don’t have to go, really you don’T.

Jack: No, I think I do.

Xander: I almost mucked up your whole life just then.

Gabi: You’re gonna spoil your dinner.

Jake: What dinner? You left the tamales when you stomped out. Here, you want one?

Gabi: No, thank you.

Jake: Gabi, it’s not the bakery’s fault that it’s occupying the space you wanted for your store.

Gabi: All right.

Jake: How very mature of you.

Gabi: Now, I’m not gonna get in your face about what you– whatever you use to track down brady. These are really good.

Jake: Right? So where do you figure we’re gonna get our next meal from? You know, since we’re homeless, I mean. Unless you getting in ava’s face, calling her bitch and us moving out was not just a knee jerk reaction, but part of a master plan.

Gabi: Well, I hate to disappoint, but knee jerk kinda sums it up. I have had it up to here with ms. Vitali. I’m sure we’ll think of something.

Jake: Well, can’t imagine we’re gonna find a place by tonight. So why don’t we take a room at the salem inn?

Gabi: No, are you kidding me? Like everybody in this town? If you wanna be rubbing shoulders with every misfit in salem, that’s you, but not me. Besides, I think I just got an idea.

Jake: Oh.

Gabi: How do you know where brady is? You’re having him followed?

Jake: I’ll just say I’m keeping tabs on the situation.

Gabi: How?

Jake: You don’t need to know.

Gabi: What am I, the little woman?

Jake: You are a woman, who has a reputation for stirring up trouble. So, let’s just say, I’m trying out for look for you.

Gabi: I guess I get that. I’ll just fantasize about victor getting an earful about phillip’s failings.

Jake: And he will.

Gabi: I just can’t believe brady and phillip are fighting over chloe. It’s only a matter of time before phillip is out and you and i are running titan industries.

Chloe: I cannot believe I ate that huge sandwich by myself.

Philip: You worked up an appetite doing manual labor. And you did it in heels no less.

Chloe: Yeah, well, these heels will be seeing the inside of a second-hand store at this point. But the sacrifice was worth it.

Philip: You really think so?

Chloe: I do.

Philip: I could take you to a shoe store on the way home. I will patiently wait until you find another pair.

Chloe: Really, you would do that for me?

Philip: I would do that for you. I would do anything for you, you know that.

[Phone beeps]

Chloe: Problem?

Philip: Maybe. Something I have to deal with now. Damn, you mind taking a rain check on those shoes?

Chloe: Yeah, no problem. Good thing we took separate cars. Thank you for this. Thank you for today. I will see you at home.

Philip: All right.

Xander: I mean, you could have told me you decided to go with the prostitute story. I almost outed you.

Gwen: Well, thank god you bloody didn’T. Sorry, sorry.

Xander: You said you were gonna tell him the truth.

Gwen: I was. I was gonna say all of it, but then I imagined what his reaction would be and I just–I couldn’t do it. So, I had to think really fast and I used your idea. He was so understanding.

Xander: I told you it was a good story.

Gwen: No, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that. At least, I’m still on good terms with him.

Xander: Well, and you told him that I was covering for you when I said all that about, you know, working with snyder. So, I’m back on good terms with him again too. So now we both know where we stand with jack. The only question is where do we stand with each other?

Victor: So, do we have a deal? Don’t just stand there, are we gonna try and take chloe away from philip or not?

[Footsteps approaching]

Chloe: Yeah, I’d like to know the answer to that question myself.

Abigail: Thomas? Charlotte? It’s almost time for dinner. I’m gonna come up and help you wash your hands, okay?

Jake: Abigail, hey.

Abigail: Hi.

Gabi: I didn’t know you were back in town.

Abigail: I just got back this morning. What are you guys doing here? Chad told me you moved out.

Gabi: You’ll be the first to hear the good news. We’re moving back in.

>>Ava: Hi. Come on in.

Philip: I was surprised to get your text. What’s up?

Ava: Well, I thought that you might like to know in advance that gabi hernandez dimera is plotting against you.
