Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Philip: Good morning.
Chloe: Good–good morning. What is that?
Philip: It’s for you.
Chloe: Oh, and what is the occasion?
Philip: It’s national strawberry pie day. You didn’t know?
Chloe: Oh, well, how many pies are in there? No, seriously, what’s in there?
Philip: Why don’t you open it up, find out?
Brady: Hey, jake. Uh, what are you doing here?
Jake: I was picking up my dry cleaning across the street. Thought I’d stop in and say hello.
Brady: Oh. How did you know where I live?
Jake: I sent you a fruit basket when you got shot, remember? Back when I was your boss?
Jake: Anyway, I was in the area, and I thought I’d check in. See how that talk with your grandfather went.
Brady: Oh, the talk that you wanted me to have with him about philip, where you and gabi were concerned about the way in which philip is running titan?
Jake: Yeah, exactly.
Brady: Funny thing, jake, is I don’t–I don’t remember confirming that I was going to have that talk with my grandfather. So how exactly do you know that I did?
Gabi: Oh, yes. I would love a cup.
Rafe: I thought you moved out–again.
Gabi: I’m back–again.
Nicole: This is totally out of order.
[Sighs] There’s gotta be a stapler remover somewhere.
Ej: Nicole? Sorry. Didn’t mean to startle you.
Nicole: Once again, the big boss shows up unannounced. You know, the last time you were here, you told me to hire xander or I would be let go.
Ej: That’s exactly what I’ve come to discuss.
Xander: Gwen. How did you get in here?
Gwen: I have my ways. Are you all right?
Xander: I’m fine. They’ll have me out of these clothes and into a jumpsuit any minute now, I’m sure.
Gwen: Oh, my goodness. You look absolutely exhausted. You must be starving too. You didn’t get to have your dinner before rafe dragged you out last night.
Xander: Oh, I hope you didn’t let all that room service go to waste.
Gwen: Come on, are you joking? I’ve lost my appetite. You shouldn’t even be in this mess; I’m the one who dragged you here in the first place. I’m so sorry, xander.
Xander: Don’t be. ‘Cause like I said, you’re worth it.
Gwen: After everything you’ve done for me, I promise I’m going to make this up to you. I’m going to get you out of here no matter what it takes.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Rafe: So ava said that you and jake got into some sort of fight with her yesterday and then you just took off?
Gabi: No, she picked the fight with me. That pushy, obnoxious–
Rafe: Just tell me what happened.
Gabi: All right. Long story short, I am sick of your girlfriend’s crap, so jake and I decided to move back to the dimera mansion, but that didn’t happen.
Rafe: Why not? You own the place.
Gabi: That’s what I thought, but when I got there, I told chad and ej to start packing. Jake shouldn’t have to live with those traitors. But they didn’t leave.
Rafe: You didn’t make them leave?
Gabi: I couldn’T. Turns out ej owns the house now. The snake pulled a dirty trick and stole it out from under me.
Rafe: Hmm. Sorry to hear that.
Gabi: Ej–ej’s the one that’s gonna be sorry, ’cause I am not gonna take this lying down. I already have my lawyers on it.
Rafe: Mm-hmm. But in the meantime, you’ll be here for a while.
Gabi: I didn’t think you minded having us.
Rafe: I don’T. But I do mind the way you treat my girlfriend.
Gabi: Well, it’s not my fault you’re dating a heartless bitch.
Rafe: Oh my–
Gabi: It’s true.
Ava: Good morning to you two.
Nicole: So do you have another ultimatum for me? Oh, I can’t wait to hear it!
Ej: There’s no need for sarcasm. You know I only use such tactics as a last resort–and you weren’t being very cooperative.
Nicole: About working with the man who destroyed my marriage? No, I wasn’t, sorry. But I did hear that xander was in jail, so now I’m just hoping he never gets out.
Ej: Xander’s been terminated. He didn’t hold up his end of the bargain to return the money samantha paid him. So I’ve rescinded my legal services as well as the job offer. You’ll never see him in this office again.
Ej: As far as I’m concerned, xander cook can rot in jail for the rest of his miserable life.
Xander: This is not your fault, gwen. It’s ej dimera’S. He’s the one who got the judge to make the charges against me go away, and when I can snap my fingers and get him back the money the cops confiscated, he got me arrested again.
Gwen: Xander, you don’t belong here. You didn’t even commit a bloody crime.
Xander: I’ve committed plenty, just not the ones I’m currently accused of.
Gwen: You are not staying behind bars.
Xander: Gwen, darling, are you, uh, suggesting a jailbreak? ‘Cause that would be incredibly sexy.
Gwen: No. That’s not what I’m suggesting.
[Sighs] I’m saying that I want to make things right.
Xander: You don’t have to worry about that.
Gwen: I’m the one who’s running drugs for snyder. I’m the one who should be arrested. And I’m not allowing you take the blame for me any longer.
Xander: So what are you gonna do?
Gwen: What I should’ve done a long time ago. I’m going to confess.
Xander: No, gwen. You can’t confess.
Gwen: But I wouldn’t say the whole truth, would I? I would say to the police what I told my father– that snyder knew that I was a hooker.
Xander: Sex worker.
Gwen: Sorry, yes. Snyder knew I was a sex worker, and that he used that information to make me run drugs for him.
Xander: You’d still be admitting to a felony.
Gwen: It’s to get you out of here.
Xander: But it wouldn’T. I’m not in here ’cause I’m guilty. I’m in here because ej dimera has a judge under his thumb. So if you confess, all it’s gonna do is– you’ll just end up hurting yourself. It won’t change anything.
Gwen: Okay, but xander, I can’t just bloody sit here and do nothing, can I?
Xander: Stop blaming yourself–maybe this is just karma catching up with me.
Gwen: Me too. God. We finally take a risk and we put our feelings out there and we– what the bloody hell am I talking about? I don’t give up, and neither do you.
Xander: Well, look, unless you’re willing to revisit the jailbreak concept, I don’t think we have a lot of other moves.
Gwen: Rubbish. Right, move number one: We are gonna get you a bloody fantastic lawyer.
Xander: Called around last night. Started with the top-tier firms, worked my way down to the ambulance chasers. Every single one of them refused to represent me.
Xander: The instant i mentioned ej was the author of all my problems, every single one of them hung up on me.
Gwen: Come on, surely there must be somebody in this stupid town who has a law license who isn’t terrified of the dimeras. Ah!
[Laughs] And here he is.
Nicole: It’s not like xander went on a spending spree with the cash that sami paid him to ruin my marriage. The cops are holding it as evidence.
Ej: Are you suggesting I give him a second chance?
Nicole: Oh, god, no, no, no. That animal deserves to be in a cage for all the horrible things that he has done. I just figured that when the charges were dropped that would be the end of it. So how did they suddenly just reappear?
Ej: Let’s just say the less you know, the better. Is it take your daughter to work day?
Nicole: What? No, no, that’s–
Ej: Don’t worry, nicole. I’m not going to punish you for violating company policy.
Nicole: I did not bring holly to work, and that is not her bear.
Ej: Oh, so it’s yours?
Nicole: Actually, it belongs to rafe hernandez.
Gabi: Buenos días to you too.
Rafe: Gabi, I think that you owe ava an apology.
Gabi: Why? Wha–what I said is nothing compared to the things she said to me.
Rafe: Okay, well maybe she only said those things because you provoked her.
Gabi: [Gasps] What? Why are you taking her side? I am your sister!
Rafe: Ava is my girlfriend.
Gabi: Oh, and every time you say that makes my skin crawl. Listen, I know that it’s hard out there, and it might be you’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel with–
Rafe: This is exactly what I am talking about. You cannot say those kinds of things to ava, okay?
Gabi: Maybe I’d be nicer if she wasn’t in my face all the time.
Rafe: You’re the one who decided to move back in here.
Gabi: This is my house! I grew up here!
Rafe: I pay the mortgage.
Gabi: Oh, my god, rafe. Seriously, are you saying I’m the one that has to move out?
Ava: Okay, stop, please. Please stop; I don’t want the two of you fighting over me. If it would make things easier if I found my own place…
Rafe: No, no, no. I never said that.
Gabi: I am.
Ava: Okay. Rafe, family means everything to me, and I know you feel the same way.
Rafe: Yeah. I am not asking you to move out. I am asking for my sister to be reasonable and take the high road for once–like you are.
Ava: I thought you’d like to know in advance that gabi hernandez dimera is plotting against you.
Philip: Plotting against me how?
Ava: Well, she and your new corporate spy. They’re planning to oust you from titan and take over themselves.
Jake: I happened to be passing by the kiriakis place last night and saw your car and figured you were there talking to victor, you know, since you seemed pretty concerned about what gabi and I told you.
Brady: You happen to know what kind of car I drive?
Jake: Well, it’s a pretty sweet ride. I used to be a mechanic. I pay attention to these things.
Brady: I see. You know, I know that you used to be in the mob, right? So is this your not-so-subtle way of letting me know that you’re keeping tabs on me?
Chloe: [Gasps] Oh my goodness. Fire and ice roses. They’re gorgeous. Mm. I can’t believe you remembered.
Philip: How could i ever forget?
Chloe: After all these years, you’re still surprising me. Where did you even find these?
Philip: I went back to the nursery to ask how to take care of our tree. Saw these, and i couldn’t resist.
Chloe: That is so thoughtful. Thank you.
Philip: You’re welcome. As for our sapling, it’s still freshly planted, so it’s gonna need a little tlc until it takes root. That’s what this is for. The nursery owner said it was her top recommendation for a 22nd anniversary gift.
Chloe: Uh, it seems a little bit random, no?
Philip: Apparently, it’s the water anniversary, which got me thinking– it’s been 22 years since we met.
Chloe: 22 years? That’s crazy.
Philip: You’ve always been the one that got away. I made so many mistakes back then.
Chloe: We both did.
Philip: But I learned from them, chloe. And I promise you I’m gonna take perfect care of our tree–and of you. When I heard about the science behind the new
Gwen: Thank god somebody from xander’s family actually cared enough to show up. Thank you very much, justin. Justin is it? Yes, thank you very much for offering to represent xander.
Justin: Oh, no, that’s not why I’m here.
Xander: It’s not?
Justin: No, no, I came down to see bonnie.
Xander: Oh, we haven’t seen her, actually, but if I do, we’re gonna have a nice, sweet chat about taking stuff that doesn’t belong to you.
Gwen: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Wait, wait. Okay, look. Since fate has just brought you into this room, can’t you help xander, your cousin, who is innocent?
Justin: I’m sorry, I can’t take on anything else right now. I am working around the clock on bonnie’s case, so–
Gwen: Mm, yeah, yeah. I’m sure that’s a full-time job given that she’s murdered two people in cold blood and stole xander’s money. And that’s the reason that he’s back in jail. So you owe him.
Justin: Bonnie is incredibly remorseful, and there were extreme extenuating circumstances. You know, I can’t do this right now. I have 12 hours to convince judge smails to reconsider bonnie’s bail, so if you’d excuse me–
Xander: Wait, wait, did you say judge smails?
Justin: Yes, why?
Ej: So rafe’s collecting teddy bears now? How unconventional.
Nicole: Well, if you must know, I won this for him in an arcade game. It was kind of a birthday present.
Ej: Mm, and it’s in your possession because…?
Nicole: Well, because duke was–I don’t know, we were–
Nicole: That’s his name.
Ej: Looks more like a sheriff to me. A rather useless one.
Nicole: I don’t have to explain anything to you.
Ej: Mm. I don’t see any possible explanation that wouldn’t be deeply embarrassing for rafe. But that’s rafe hernandez for you, one enormous embarrassment–
Nicole: Okay, would you stop talking about rafe?
Gabi: You know, the only way that ava would take the high road is if she took a wrong turn.
Rafe: Wow. Okay. Here’s the deal. I do not wanna wake up in a war zone every morning.
Gabi: Well, then tell the enemy to retreat.
Rafe: Okay, here’s– the other thing that you seem to fail to recognize is that i want to make this arrangement work, and so does ava. And since you have nowhere else to go at the moment, I would suggest you suck it up and apologize.
Ava: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. That is not necessary.
Rafe: I think it is.
Gabi: What, you’re not gonna ask her to do the same thing?
Rafe: I haven’t heard her say anything that she needs to apologize for.
Gabi: I sure as hell have. Fine. I apologize and, I promise to be more respectful in the future.
Rafe: Maybe you could even say it like you mean it.
Gabi: I apologize, and i promise to be more respectful in the future. There–are you happy?
Jake: Keeping tabs on you? Brady, why would I do that? We’re on the same side here. We both wanna keep your uncle phil from running titan into the ground.
Brady: Now, I want that too. Despite working for the competition, I don’t wanna see my family’s legacy hurt at all. I want it to be okay. But the real question is, why do you care? You’ve been at titan for what– a couple weeks, maybe?
Jake: First of all, I don’t wanna see gabi’s company go down in flames. And secondly, I don’t want a boss who’s got his head up his ass.
Brady: [Laughs] Well, who would you want the boss to be, jake? Maybe you?
Philip: I hope you know how hard I’m working to turn over a new leaf.
Chloe: I know you are. When you came home last night and saw me talking to brady, I could tell that your head wanted to explode, but you were very understanding, and that was nice. It was civilized, it was…
Philip: The way it should be. I do feel bad for accusing him of corporate espionage.
Chloe: But you said you found out some new information, right?
Philip: I think I might actually know who put spyware on my computer.
Philip: This stays between us?
Chloe: Yeah, of course.
Philip: It was gabi and jake. They were working together to get rid of me and take over titan.
Chloe: Oh, my god. After you gave them both a chance.
Philip: I still need to find the proof, but when I do, those two are gonna regret ever thinking they could play me for a fool.
Woo! You are busy…
Chloe: So how did you find out that jake and gabi were really the spies?
Philip: An old business associate tipped me off. Then I remembered when it first told me that they’d found a keylogger on my laptop, I accused gabi of putting it there.
Chloe: And she denied it?
Philip: Even though i caught her red-handed in my office using my computer because hers supposedly wouldn’t start. And right after that, my machine got all glitchy.
Chloe: You should’ve just fired her on the spot.
Philip: I did. Her and jake. But then he said that she was having tech problems as well, and I should have it check her laptop too. And what do you know–spyware.
Chloe: Do you think that they planted spyware proactively?
Philip: Seems that way. But as soon as the heat was off of them, they put it right onto brady. Made me think he was behind it.
Chloe: Which is why you freaked out on him and insisted that I quit my job.
Philip: I’m sorry about that. But my god, it’s all making sense now. Why gabi wanted me to hire jake, why she was soaking suspicion at brady.
Chloe: Well, you know now that brady wasn’t in on it with them. And when I spoke to him last night, he told me he was perfectly happy working at basic black, and he has no interests in using any hostile tactics against titan or us.
Philip: It wasn’t easy to apologize for pointing the finger at him. But I have to admit–the three of us sitting down for a nice, peaceful meal was pretty nice.
Chloe: Yeah. And I think that brady would agree. And now you have to uphold your end of the bargain and never badmouth brady to me again. Promise?
Philip: Not another word against him. I promise.
Chloe: Well, that is a relief, thank you. And I’m sure if you need some help busting jake and gabi, brady will be very happy to help your cause.
Jake: What? You–you think i wanna be the boss?
Brady: Jake, when you and gabi came to me and asked me to talk to my grandfather, I suspected you had ulterior motives, all right?
Jake: No. We approached you because philip’s been acting like a crazy person, okay? Erratic, unfocused– Brady: That part I believed. That part I believed. But now you’re in my place pumping me for information.
Jake: Just curious, that’s all.
Brady: I’ll give you a fun fact, all right? I’ve been ceo of titan not once, not twice, a couple of times. I can smell when the sharks are circling, jake. You know what I mean? So if you want this coup attempt to be successful, you’re gonna have to be a little more slick than this.
Jake: Cool. Brady, get real here. Nobody is gonna make a brand-new employee ceo, right?
Brady: Come on, man. You enjoyed a meteoric rise from a what–mechanic to dimera ceo–till you got thrown out on your ass. And then what happened? Boom–you land at titan with your girlfriend. You’re kidding me? Are you sure you don’t want you and gabi to be the next big power couple in salem?
Jake: Never thought about it that way.
Brady: You can cut the crap now. You and gabby have been used to running your own company. I know you have ideas. You have visions for the future, and you want philip out of the way, right?
Jake: Come on, brady, let’s be honest. Don’t you want the same thing?
Ava: Thank you for your apology, gabi.
Gabi: Go choke on a ravioli.
Ava: She could’ve said a lot worse.
Rafe: Yeah, you could’ve said a lot worse.
Ava: Listen, gabi is her own worst enemy.
Rafe: Could not agree with you more there.
Ava: You know, people used to say the same thing about me. That I couldn’t get out of my own way–and they were absolutely right. You know, most of the heartache that I’ve experienced in my life, a lot of it’s been brought on by myself. Self-inflicted, you know. I’m afraid that gabi is about to go in the same road.
Justin: Do you know judge smails?
Xander: He’s the one who threw the book at me. And as an officer of the court, you should know he’s corrupt as hell.
Justin: Hmm. What makes you say that?
Xander: When ej was my attorney, he got smails to drop the charges against me.
Justin: Well, you weren’t complaining then.
Xander: I agreed to pay mr. Dimera $1 million in exchange for his services. I had the cash all ready to go–
Gwen: And then bonnie stole it.
Xander: And then the police seized it. When I couldn’t pay up immediately, ej punished me by getting the charges reinstated. Now, you tell me, if smails is on the up-and-up, how could that happen? Before you go into that court, you should know that the man you’re dealing with might not necessarily be swayed by the facts of the case.
Gwen: Mm. Not like the facts of our case are really that persuasive, are they? So maybe you and xander can help each other. Yeah.
Limu emu & doug
Justin: How do you think xander and I could possibly help each other?
Gwen: Okay. The judge is dirty, yes. So you use that to encourage him to see bonnie’s case in a more favorable light and do right by xander.
Justin: I have no evidence judge smails has done anything wrong.
Gwen: Don’t worry, we’ll get the evidence. You just get the ball rolling, yeah?
Justin: Oh, so you’re suggesting that I blackmail the judge using evidence I don’t have that he himself is corrupt? Sounds like a winning strategy.
Gwen: Okay, you have to see the bigger picture here, though, okay? Wouldn’t the citizens of salem be well served if we could get this guy out of ej’s pocket?
Justin: Oh, well, I appreciate you reframing this as issue of social importance. But I’ve sworn an oath to the court, and what you’re proposing isn’t exactly kosher.
Gwen: Mm, yeah, well, you are engaged to bonnie lockhart– I would say that the ship’s sailed on being kosher, darling.
Justin: I have a defense to prepare.
Gwen: No–okay, okay, okay. Listen. Let’s say that the judge is as fair and impartial as they come, right? Do you honestly–do you honestly think that bonnie is going to get off on two murder charges? That is a very steep mountain to climb, my friend, no matter how good of a lawyer you are. And let’s say that the judge is crooked–doesn’t care about justice, just wants to get paid, right? And you refuse to cooperate. You gonna lose, no matter how strong your argument is. Either way, it doesn’t look good, does it? You can’t really just roll the dice here, justin. You have to take control, yeah? Don’t you want a future with the woman that you love, justin?
Justin: Hypothetically speaking, if ej did bribe the judge, I suppose one could trace the transactions.
Xander: No, it’s not bribery. It wouldn’t make sense for ej to pay money to someone just to get his own money back.
Gwen: No, ej got to him some other way–we just have to figure out how.
Justin: This sounds like a fishing expedition to me.
Gwen: Yeah, but well worth it if we can hook the big one, yeah?
Ej: It seems I’ve hit a nerve.
Nicole: Rafe and i are friends, you know that.
Ej: I do. And I can’t stand the man. But that doesn’t give me license for being rude. I apologize. And you look stunned.
Nicole: You never apologize.
Ej: Only on the rarest of occasions. I had no idea the commissioner was such a sensitive subject. There isn’t something going on between the two of you, is there?
Nicole: No, definitely not.
Ej: Forgive me for being forward, but I’m getting the sense that you wish there were.
Rafe: So any word from philip on that job you applied for at titan?
Ava: Not yet.
Ava: I know it’s a long shot. I don’t exactly have a ton of skills.
Rafe: Mm. I don’t know about that.
Ava: It’s been a long time since I have worked in corporate america. I do know how to get what I want, but I think that titan might frown on some of my methods.
Rafe: Probably, yeah. I was actually surprised you wanted to work there, considering your history with philip.
Ava: Well, being a chef didn’t really turn out, and it doesn’t look like basic black will, either, so kind of my last option.
Rafe: I hope it works out.
Ava: Me too. And victor kiriakis was in the mob back in the day, so I think it’s a place that I really might fit in.
Brady: Look, jake. I don’t want any part in taking down titan. I like my job and i like where I’m at. But while we’re putting all our cards out on the table here, was it you and gabi that put that keylogger on phillip’s computer?
Jake: I don’t know what a keylogger is. And as you pointed out, I’m just a grease monkey. Obviously, gabi didn’t put a keylogger in her own computer, so your theory needs work.
Brady: All right. Well, I gotta get to the office, so if you excuse me.
Jake: Uh, you never told me how your talk with your grandfather went.
Brady: No, I didn’T. My grandfather is pleased with what philip is doing at titan.
[Phone ringing] And that’s really all you need to know, so if you’ll excuse me. Have a good day. Hey, granddad. Yeah, yeah, I have given it some thought, and– look, I know that you think that philip would be less distracted without chloe in the picture, but you need to know that I have no interest in getting between the two of them. And I’m sorry.
Dayquil severe for you…
Gwen: Don’t you want to beat ej at his own game by getting the goods on this judge?
Xander: I certainly do. But I won’t be able to do much detective work from my cell.
Gwen: Well, you just leave that to me and justin.
Justin: Oh, I didn’t say I was on board with this plan. Oh, okay, I gotta go meet bonnie; excuse me.
Gwen: No, but xander still needs an attorney! Dammit.
Xander: Well, he didn’t say he was on board, but he didn’t say he wasn’T.
Ej: Dudley do-right is dating a mob princess.
Nicole: Ex-mob princess. And watch it. Ava’s vitali is my friend too.
Ej: Even though she stole your man?
Nicole: Rafe was never my man.
Ej: But you’d like him to be.
Nicole: Okay, would you stop it, please? I am in the middle of a divorce, and I am not ready to move on. And ava and rafe just started a new relationship, and it seems to be working. So I decided to just take myself out of the equation.
Ej: Do you really think it’s for the best? Because you look miserable.
Nicole: I have a lot of work to do.
Ej: On the other hand, as much as I hate seeing my favorite ex-wife unhappy, my experience with ava vitali says staying out of her way is a wise move.
Rafe: I gotta get to work.
Ava: Mm. I put in some of those cookies you like.
Ava: Yeah. Hey, rafe, I hope you know that I would never wanna cause a problem between you and gabi.
Rafe: I know. I know that. And I appreciate that you are making the effort to get along with her. I just wish that she would do the same damn thing because– I’m telling you, if she doesn’t change her attitude, oh, she is not gonna like me choosing who stays or who goes.
Ava: You’re just saying that because of my ravioli.
Rafe: Oh, that’s definitely not it.
Rafe: Okay. Maybe it’s a part of it.
Gabi: How’d it go with brady?
Jake: He was a little suspicious. I, uh, I think I came on a little too strong.
Gabi: Oh, well, we have no choice now that ej stole my house out from under me. We have to get aggressive, and we have to get this plan moving. So is victor gonna fire philip?
Jake: No. But I did come up with a very interesting piece of information.
Philip: I don’t need brady’s help to bust gabi and jake. He is the competition, after all.
Chloe: Yeah, well, so am I, but I’m still 100% on your side.
Philip: Thank you.
Chloe: So I assuming the next step is to fire them again?
Philip: I wish I could. But if I fire gabi, she could regain control of gabi chic. That was part of her deal– and it’s a hugely profitable division.
Chloe: Well, can’t you just fire jake then?
Philip: I’d tip my hand. I think I’m gonna wait until I’m ready to make my next move.
Chloe: What move is that?
Philip: Gabi’s trying to steal my company. Maybe I try to steal hers. Shingles?
Gwen: Okay. Even if justin doesn’t help us, we still need to find a way to prove that this judge is on the take.
Xander: Would be so much easier if he was taking money. How are we supposed to get to him if we don’t know what he wants?
Gwen: I think I have an idea.
Justin: Rafe, bonnie was supposed to be brought up from her cell. What’s the delay?
Rafe: Yeah, I actually just got word from judge smails that her visiting privileges have been restricted due to bad behavior.
Justin: What bad behavior?
Rafe: It’s bonnie lockhart. Could be anything.
Justin: She’s my fiancéE.
Rafe: Right. Then you know.
Nicole: Ava has changed since the last time you knew her. She has completely given up her old life.
Ej: But we both know she’ll revert to type, eventually.
Nicole: I don’t think so. She lost a son. And her other son means the world to her. She won’t do anything to jeopardize what they have.
Ej: Rafe will be ruing his terrible taste–though i suppose he’s always been attracted to bad girls. I hope you know you can do much better than that dolt. In fact, you have.
Nicole: What, with you?
Ej: Who else would I mean?
Nicole: Not that you have a big ego or anything?
Ej: I thought you liked my big ego.
Nicole: I, uh, have a lot of work to do.
Ej: [Chuckles] As do I. And when we’re both finished with work, I say we go and get a lovely dinner. Together.
Brady: Oh, hi.
Brady: Are those from philip?
Chloe: Yeah, of course. Who else?
Brady: They’re beautiful. Very nice.
Chloe: Yeah, they are very nice, aren’t they? So did you tell victor that you’re not gonna take him up on his suggestion to try to steal me away from philip?
Brady: I did. And I got an earful, as expected, but you have my word, chloe. If things don’t work out with you and philip, it’s not gonna be because of me.
Gabi: So victor wanted brady to break up chloe and philip? Are you sure?
Jake: That’s what i heard him say. But he refused to go along with it.
Gabi: Hmm. This could be very useful information, because chloe is the achilles’ heel we’re gonna use to bring down philip.
Ava: Have you given any more thought to our conversation?
Philip: Yes. And I have a question.
Ava: Ask away.
Philip: How would you like to help me bring down gabi hernandez?
