Brady: Got it, steve. All right, thanks for the update.
Chloe: So what did he say?
Brady: He and kayla are in italy. They’ve gone undercover as a nun and priest to get inside a convent that kristen hid out in a couple years ago.
Chloe: So is that where she is now?
Brady: Well, they’re not sure. Kayla’s come up with this story that she needs to stay there. And if the convent goes for it, they’ll be able to start looking around.
Chloe: So, bottom line, we don’t know if philip is alive or dead?
Brady: Not yet.
Kate: What the hell are you doing back in town?
Lucas: Well, it’s nice to see you, too, mom. I’m here because I got subpoenaed to testify, okay? I thought it would be a bad idea to blow it off.
Kate: Not if you want ej to go down for kidnapping sami.
Lucas: Oh, damn right I do. After what he did, holding her against her will for months and scared her to death, no, no. No, what he did was unforgivable. They need to throw the book at that guy, and you know it. What, what’s the matter now?
Kate: This righteous indignation of yours may work with sami, but not with me because I know for a fact you’re the one who had her kidnapped.
Demon johnny: Taking possession of your precious little giovanni was a stroke of genius, don’t you think? Just you watch, we are gonna work his daddy like it’s nobody’s business. And, thanks to you, ej’s convinced that there is nothing’s more important than family. And he’s so desperate for his son’s love that he’ll sign over his shares to me, no questions asked. I’ll take over dimera, and your precious heir will rot in prison.
Melinda: This document was printed on december 31st from a dimera computer. Do you recognize it?
Chad: It’s an expense report.
Melinda: Who printed it?
Chad: I did.
Chad: Because I was doing a quarterly audit and saw some payments I didn’t recognize.
Melinda: You’re referring to the large recurring payments made to one jason smith?
Chad: That’s right.
Melinda: The same jason smith who rented a cabin in greenwood, wisconsin, where samantha brady was held captive for several months?
Belle: Objection. Calls for speculation.
Melinda: Withdrawn. So you’re telling me you printed this expense report because you noticed some irregularities. Irregularities that would have implicated the defendant, your brother, elvis dimera, in the kidnapping of his wife?
Chad: I had some questions about the transactions.
Melinda: So do I. And I’d appreciate if you’d answer them.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Brady: Look, hey, I know how hard this is, but you’re just gonna have to hang in there a little longer, okay?
Chloe: But this is kristen that we’re talking about, and the more time that goes by–
Brady: I know, but, listen, no matter how angry she is, I can’t see her going as far as taking philip’s life just to get back at us.
Chloe: No. If he’s not dead, then where is he?
Brady: Chloe, hey, look at me, look at me. We’re gonna find him. We’re gonna get some answers, okay?
[Phone rings] Okay.
Brady: Who is that?
Chloe: Oh, it’s my mother. She just keeps calling me, and I don’t want to talk to her. She wants an update on philip.
Brady: Well, you’re gonna get one soon, okay?
Chloe: Yeah, well, right now, I just don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to talk about phillip anymore because there’s no leads, there’s no sightings, there’s nothing. It’s like just philip just disappeared off the face of the earth.
Lucas: What the hell are you talking about? Ej’s trying to pin this kidnapping on me?
Kate: Okay. Just calm down, okay?
Lucas: I’m not gonna calm down. Ej makes up a bs story, and you choose to believe it? Thank you, thank you. I appreciate your support.
Kate: Lucas, I know that you put evidence against ej on the dimera computer. I know that, okay? You made it look like he was making payments to whoever kidnapped sami.
Lucas: So now I’m a hacker? I’m a computer hacker all of a sudden, wow, great.
Kate: You used my password, lucas.
Lucas: I don’t know your password. Even if I did, it doesn’t–
Kate: Chad told me.
Lucas: Make any difference.
Kate: Chad told me.
Lucas: He is such a dimera. That makes me sick; I knew he was gonna say something. You know what? It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. I know it’s bad, okay? I know it’s really bad, but I was desperate. Do you understand me? I am desperately in love with this woman, and she’s going to go back to ej? The way he’s mistreated her? Treated her like crap. Just taking advantage of her. You know what? I’m not gonna do it anymore. You know what, she was alone. She was in pain; she came to me because I make her happy. That’s what I do.
Kate: Okay, lucas, please–
Lucas: No, listen to me. Ej went ballistic when he found out that we were together, and he kicked sami out of the house. And now, she wanted to go back with him? What am I supposed to do? Let that happen again? I had to do something. Give me a break.
Kate: Okay, lucas, just stop. Listen to me.
Lucas: You listen to me. Sami must never find out what I did. If she finds out, I’m screwed.
Kate: Okay, listen, listen. I am trying to help you here.
Lucas: Oh, are you, really? How are trying to help me?
Kate: Yeah, I am.
Lucas: How are you doing that?
Kate: Right now, chad is at the courthouse. And when he testifies, he’s going to make sure that ej is not convicted.
Melinda: Did your audit reveal that these payments to mr. Smith were laundered through company accounts?
Chad: Yes, but what I want–
Melinda: Let the record show that the witness responded in the affirmative.
Chad: Hey, wait, I wasn’t done answering–
Melinda: Moving on. And did your audit reveal that elvis dimera signed off on each and every one of these payments, directly linking him to jason smith? A simple yes or no will suffice.
Chad: There’s more to the story than that, your honor.
Melinda: Yes or no? Your honor.
Judge: Answer the question, sir. Now, mr. Dimera, or I will hold you in contempt. Serena: It’s my 3:10
Jake: Ah, where is this guy? Hey, how are you feeling by the way?
Gabi: My throat’s a little strained. Mind doing most of the talking?
Maggie: Ah, gabi, it’s been a while–jake.
Maggie: Henderson said you were waiting; I thought you might like some tea.
Jake: Oh, wow, maggie, that’s really sweet. But we’re actually here to be with victor.
Gabi: Yeah, is he around?
Maggie: He isn’t available right now.
Jake: Oh, well, we’ll come back when he is. Thank you.
Maggie: If you’re here about your grand plans to run titan and dimera, I know all about them.
Gabi: You do?
Maggie: Of course. I’m victor’s wife. He keeps me informed. I mean, I’m well aware that you approached him with the idea of running titan. That’s the reason I’m taking this meeting.
Brady: Hey, hey, I know you care about philip. I care about you, too. So I want you to know, if there’s anything you don’t want to talk to your mom about, whether it’s how you’re feeling or what’s going on, you can talk to me. I’m here. I’m your friend first, okay?
Chloe: Thank you. And I really–I appreciate that. And you know you can always talk to me about anything, too, okay?
Brady: All right. Can I tell you what’s on my mind right now?
Brady: Food. Can we please eat? I’m starving.
Chloe: Yeah, me too. I’m pretty hungry.
Brady: Then let’s get out of here and go get some lunch, okay? All right?
Lucas: Are you sure about this?
Kate: Yes. Chad had to do the right thing. He couldn’t let his brother go down with something that he’s innocent of.
Lucas: Innocent? Ej dimera innocent? That makes me sick. You know what? Maybe he didn’t do this particular crime, but he’s done so many other illegal things in the past. This was the perfect time to bust him.
Kate: Okay, chad sees it differently.
Lucas: No, he doesn’T. Chad agreed with me, he agreed. He knew it was time that ej got what he had coming. He said it was the perfect time to frame him. All that he had to do was go to the dimera board and give them the evidence, then he’d be running dimera solo. But, no, not chad. He doesn’t do that.
Kate: Okay, look, he was okay–he was okay with ej losing his job. But having his brother go to jail and to prison for a decade, believe me, it was a bridge too far.
Lucas: Right, so he just throws me under the bus. Doesn’t care about me, huh?
Kate: It’s not about you. It’s about his conscience.
Lucas: He doesn’t have a conscience. He’s a dimera; he’s ruthless, like they all are. They are all animals.
Kate: In business, yes. But this is personal, okay? And, unlike ej, chad does have lines that he will not cross. He has a good heart.
Kate: Okay? He couldn’t live with himself if he hurt a member of his family.
Demon johnny: Well, I’ll have to do something about that.
Chad: I know that I’m under oath, your honor. And I’m doing my best to answer these questions. But I can’t answer them with a simple yes or no. It’s more complex than that.
Belle: I think chad is trying to help us.
Belle: I don’t know. But I think there’s more he wants to say about those payments that trask doesn’t want us to hear.
Judge: Proceed, ms. Trask.
Melinda: I have no further questions at this time, your honor. But I reserve the right to redirect.
Judge: So noted. Your witness, counselor.
Belle: [Clears throat] Let’s go back to those expense reports. You said that you didn’t recognize these transactions. These were fund transfers, right? Money that was moved from the dimera account to the account of jason smith?
Chad: That’s right.
Belle: Okay. And when you were asked if my client authorized those payments, you said there was “more to the story.”
Chad: Because there is.
Belle: All right. Well, we’d love to hear it.
Melinda: I’d love to hear an actual question.
Judge: Quiet, ms. Trask.
Belle: Mr. Dimera, do you have additional information about those payments made to jason smith?
Chad: Yes, I do. But what I wanted everybody to know is–sorry, excuse me. What I wanted everybody to know was how the record of those payments got into the computer system at dimera in the first pla–
[Choking] I can’t breathe– my plaque psoriasis…
Abigail: Chad, are you okay? Can someone get him some water? Are you okay? Oh, my god, oh, my god! We got to get him some water! Come on, come on!
Judge: We’re in recess. Bailiff, help them to the witness room.
Lucas: I have to go to the courthouse.
Kate: Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Lucas: Listen, if the truth comes out, I’m going to prison. Either that, or sami is gonna kill me. Either way, I’m screwed.
Kate: Will you listen to me? Please, listen to me. Chad is not going to let anyone know that you were behind the kidnapping, okay? He’s going to say that he planted the evidence himself.
Kate: He is going to testify that he was the one who set up ej. You will not be implicated. No one will ever know that you’re guilty.
Brady: Guilty of what?
Maggie: Victor said that you dangled the carrot of a seat on the dimera board to him and that, in return, the two of you would be put in charge of titan. And, ultimately, titan would take over dimera.
Jake: Right, and in time, the three of us would run both companies.
Maggie: The three of you?
Jake: Yeah. It’s a team effort
[Whistles] All the way.
Maggie: Okay. So this so-called team, victor would be the veteran? The old guy who should’ve retired years ago? The geezer who you can put something over on?
Gabi: No, no, we don’t think that at all.
Maggie: Well, good. I’m glad to hear you say that because victor is as sharp and as savvy as he’s ever been. And there is no way I’m going to let anyone take advantage of him.
Gabi: That was never our intention.
Jake: Maggie, we have the utmost respect for victor, which is why we wanted to enter into this partnership in the first place. We want to create a strong, lasting partnership that’s gonna benefit all of us. Secure a legacy for our children. So, maggie, it would be a shame, a mistake, for you to shut us down without letting us talk to your husband first.
Maggie: Who said anything about shutting you down? I think it’s a perfectly fine idea. I just wanted to make sure that you can deliver on your promise.
Melinda: There is never a shortage of drama when the dimeras are involved. I’ll see you when we reconvene.
Ej: Are you okay?
Belle: Yeah. I just–I don’t know how that glass slipped out of my hand.
Johnny: Hey, dad, aunt belle.
Ej: Johnny. I’m so glad you’re here.
Johnny: I promised you I would be. I’m sorry I’m late. How’s it going?
Belle: We don’t know yet.
Ej: Belle was questioning chad when he started choking and gasping for air. He couldn’t even speak.
Johnny: That’s a good thing, isn’t it?
Belle: No, it was scary. I just hope he’s okay.
Johnny: Well, I think that uncle chad got exactly what he deserved for turning on his own brother. You know what the bible says about cain and abel: “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer, and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” This is the sound of nature breathing.
Brady: Come on, lucas. Fess up. What are you guilty of?
Lucas: Just not figuring things out sooner. You know, that ej was the one who kidnapped sami.
Chloe: Yeah. But she’s safe now. You rescued her.
Lucas: Yeah, I know, but if I had figured it out sooner, you know, I could have avoided the whole trauma of this situation. She wouldn’t have been held in that cabin against her will for months, so…
Brady: Yeah. She’s right, though. I mean, she’s safe now, and it’s primarily because of you, what you did. I assume you’re back in town to testify against ej, right? Then you’re gonna give that son of a bitch exactly what he deserves, yeah?
Lucas: Yes, you bet I will.
Brady: Kate, can I talk to you in private?
Chloe: Are you okay?
Lucas: Yeah, why? I’m fine.
Chloe: I mean, you just seem a little bit, like, tense and worked up. What’s going on with you?
Abigail: Take it easy, chad. Not too fast. Hey, easy, just breathe. Should I call a doctor?
Chad: No, no, no.
Abigail: Are you sure?
Chad: Yes, I’m fine. I’m okay.
Abigail: Well, thank god. I mean, what happened in there?
Chad: I have no idea. One minute I was fine. The next I couldn’t breathe.
Abigail: Do you think it was stress? I mean, trask was really putting the pressure on you.
Chad: She’s relentless.
Abigail: I could tell that there was something that you wanted to say, but she wasn’t letting you. So what was it? What were you trying to say?
Jake: So you are on board with our plan?
Maggie: Like I said, yes, I think it’s a fine idea.
Jake: That’s great.
Gabi: We’re just surprised.
Maggie: You can’t be married to victor kiriakis all these years and not have some of his ambition rub off on you. I’m deeply invested in titan. And I care deeply about titan’s future.
Jake: And you see me and gabi as part of that future, huh?
Maggie: Well, victor’s dream has always been to hand over the reins of his company to a family member, but he has come to believe that it’s time to consider broadening that pool of potential executives.
Jake: Yeah, we discussed that the last time we were here. Victor seemed to accept the notion that the next ceo of titan will be an outsider. I mean, considering xander’s out of the picture, brady’s working for the competition, and, well, justin and sonny they are not interested, right?
Maggie: Well, most of all, it’s philip’s disappearance really upset victor. He needs something else to focus on, but, more importantly, he needs a win. The idea of bringing his biggest rival to its knees, ooh, that’s a big one.
Jake: We’re with him on that. I would love to see nothing more than my backstabbing brothers get exactly what’s coming to them.
Maggie: And now that ej might be going to prison, they’re vulnerable, and they are distracted. Seems like it might be a good time to strike.
Gabi: We’re ready.
Jake: And we assume victor is, too?
Maggie: Well, he is certainly enthusiastic about the prospect of crushing dimera. But, listen, before moving ahead, he wanted to make sure that i was in favor of teaming up with the two of you.
Gabi: Are you?
Ej: Last night, you said you hadn’t gotten religion.
Johnny: I haven’T.
Ej: Yet now you’re quoting the bible.
Johnny: Because it’s appropriate. Uncle chad is a judas. He came here to stab you in the back.
Belle: I’m actually not so sure about that. He was trying to say something out there that would help us, but trask kept cutting him off. Once I get him up there, I will give him another chance.
Johnny: Well, I don’t trust him at all. Which reminds me, dad, while you have a minute, I was hoping you could sign that document we discussed. I had one of the lawyers of the company draw it up.
Belle: What is this about?
Ej: Much to my delight, my son has realized that his rightful place is at dimera.
Belle: Oh, I thought your passion was making movies.
Johnny: Obviously, after what happened with grandma marlena, I’m not moving forward with the film. The whole experience actually made me realize it’s time for me to get serious about a real career.
Ej: And since I’m sidelined at the moment, johnny’s offered to be my eyes and ears inside the company. He wants to be there to protect my interests.
Johnny: Which I can’t do unless I have power. In case dad goes to prison, which we fervently hope that he doesn’t, of course, I need the ability to vote on his behalf. You understand, right, aunt belle?
Belle: How could I not.
Johnny: Well, then you understand why dad has agreed to transfer over ownership of his shares to me temporarily.
Belle: Ej, are you sure you want to do that?
Trelegy for copd.
Abigail: Right before you took the stand, you said there was something that I needed to know. Was it about your testimony?
Abigail: Look, I know you’re starting to think that ej is innocent. But you told me that you were not going to lie under oath to help him. Did you change your mind?
Abigail: So what is it? What do you think I need to know? Look, whatever it is, you can tell me. I don’t want there to be any secrets between us.
Chad: I don’t want there to be any secrets either, but, in this case, I think it’s best that you don’t know. You’ll find out in court with everybody else. That way you’re not complicit.
Abigail: Complicit? Oh, my god, you’re scaring me.
Chad: Do you trust me?
Abigail: Of course I trust you, but you just had some mysterious choking attack, and now you’re being really cryptic, so I’m a little freaked out.
Chad: I know. It’s going to be okay. I’m okay, right? I promise you everything is gonna turn out fine.
Abigail: Can I help in any way?
Chad: You are helping me by being here. Seeing you out there will give me the strength I need to do what I have to do.
Abigail: And you’re sure about this?
Abigail: I love you.
Chad: I love you, too. Now, I have to find belle and apologize for my charming display.
Abigail: Oof, yeah. And I actually owe “the spectator” a little update. So I’m gonna do that here, come to the courtroom when I’m done, but I promise I’ll be back in there before you take the stand.
Chad: Okay, sounds good.
Abigail: Oh, chad, just in case.
Brady: I just want you to know that I’m trying to find philip. I think kristen might have something to do with his disappearance. She may have staged this whole thing just to get back at me. And I hired steve johnson to look for her.
Kate: Yeah, I know. He mentioned it at new year’s eve.
Brady: Okay. Once she’s found, then we’ll be able to determine if she’s part of this thing.
Kate: Okay, well, you know that you’re no longer under suspicion, so there’s really no need for that, brady.
Brady: Kate, I’m not doing this to clear my name. I feel responsible for what kristen did.
Kate: Okay, well, you don’t know what kristen did.
Brady: No, I don’t, but I wanna find out. I need to find answers. I’m not gonna rest until I do. I mean, that’s what you want as well, right?
Kate: What I want is for you to call off this search.
Chloe: Answer me, lucas. Why are you so on edge? What’s going on?
Lucas: I’m worried about sami, you know. Leaving her alone. The outcome of this case is very important to her. So, you know…
Chloe: Yeah, but she’s supposed to be back in salem soon, right? When is she scheduled to appear in court?
Lucas: She’s not. I told her I didn’t think it was a good idea to be in the same room as the guy who kidnapped her.
Chloe: And you actually convinced her to stay away?
Lucas: Well, you know, you can’t convince sami of much, you know. That’s kind of hard to do, but she realized I was right, you know. She gave a deposition to trask. And that, in combination with my testimony, we’re hoping that’s enough to put ej behind bars for a very long time.
Belle: I think that this whole stock transfer is a little premature. I mean, you could be acquitted, in which case, this would all be completely unnecessary.
Johnny: I already talked to my father. Obviously, we’re all hoping that he gets off. But we need to be prepared in case he doesn’T.
Belle: Okay, well, I say we cross that bridge when we come to it.
Johnny: No, we can’T. If this thing doesn’t go our way, chad could act quickly to consolidate power. My dad would be completely shut out at dimera. We need to act now to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Ej: Remember, this agreement is only temporary.
Belle: Can I at least give it a thorough review?
Johnny: Aunt belle, I know that you are my father’s attorney. And I know that you’re general counsel for the company, but I am his son, and he trusts me. With all due respect, this is between us. So if you wouldn’t mind just leaving us alone for a minute?
Belle: Fine, I’ll go see when we’ll be under way again.
Johnny: Look, dad, I know that aunt belle is just trying to protect you. But you don’t need protection from me; you need protection from uncle chad. And that’s what I’m doing all of this for, to make sure that you don’t get hurt.
Ej: I appreciate that. It means so much to know that you’re looking out for me.
Johnny: Of course I am. I love you, dad. And I know that you have always been on my side. I want you to know that I will always be on yours.
Are you one of the millions of americans
Maggie: I am all in on this plan if you two are successful in getting victor a seat on the dimera board.
Jake: We will be.
Maggie: You have the votes?
Gabi: We believe so.
Maggie: Believe? I’m afraid that’s not good enough. We need an ironclad guarantee. Then and only then will victor sign off on this deal. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
Jake: Well, that was unexpected I mean, yes, we’ve been in the game a long time now, but now we’re playing on a whole new level. You really think we can deliver on this?
Gabi: Hell yeah, let’s go lock down those votes.
Jake: Let’s do it.
Brady: You don’t wanna know what really happened to your son?
Kate: No one, and I mean no one, can know that philip’s alive. What I don’t want is to be told my son is dead. Because I want to hold onto hope for as long as I can.
Brady: Look, kate, I understand that, I do, but if steve can find kristen, kristen can lead us to philip. He could be alive and well somewhere.
Kate: Okay, victor has people who are searching, okay?
Kate: So steve is just gonna get in the way.
Brady: The more people that are searching, though, the better, right?
Kate: I’ve made my wishes known, brady.
Brady: Kate, I’ve also made a promise to chloe to find answers, okay, and she’s been in agony about this, and will continue to be until she finds the truth, so I’m sorry, I’m not gonna tell steve to back off.
Belle: Hey, the judge wants us back in five minutes. Are you feeling better?
Chad: Yeah, I feel fine now. Sorry about that. I have no idea what happened.
Belle: Melinda trask happened.
Chad: Yeah, she’s a little aggressive.
Belle: A little? Hey, chad, when you were up there, it seemed like you were trying to get something out, and she wouldn’t let you. So when you get back on the stand, I’ll give you a chance to say whatever it is you want to say.
Chad: Yeah. I–yeah, obviously, I can’t tell you what it is ahead of time, but I think you and ej will be pleased. Sorry, I think I forgot my phone in the witness room. Just give me a second. I’ll be right back.
Abigail: Ej, you shouldn’t be in here.
Evil ej: I won’t tell if you won’T. What are you working on?
Abigail: A story for the paper.
Evil ej: I’m glad I caught you alone. I need to talk to you about something.
Abigail: Look, I know you’re upset that chad’s testifying. But you have to understand, he has an obligation to tell the truth.
Evil ej: Oh, I do understand, better than you think. I, too, feel compelled to be honest.
Abigail: About what?
Evil ej: Something that’s been on my mind a very long time. I’ve tried hard to suppress my feelings, but I just can’t do that any longer. Abigail, I want you.
Limu emu and doug.
Lucas: I’m actually gonna go to the courthouse ’cause I’m gonna be late.
Kate: Okay. I’m going with you.
Chloe: Okay, well, good luck, all right?
Lucas: Thank you.
Chloe: Okay. Well, I am starving. All right, what are we in the mood for? What do you think, burger? Maybe cobb salad, shrimp cocktail? What do you think? Should we split some–brady?
Brady: Yeah, what?
Brady: Sorry, what?
Chloe: Are you okay? You seemed really distracted. I just asked what you want to order.
Brady: Chloe, kate wants me to stop steve from looking for kristen.
Brady: She’s not optimistic. She says that the fewer people looking for him means the less she has to worry about getting bad news.
Chloe: But what if it’s good news?
Brady: That’s what I said. You’d think that philip’s mother, of all people, would want to get to the bottom of this and find answers as soon as possible, right?
Chloe: Oh, I don’t know. She’s always been odd. I mean, phillip used to always say that his mother was an enigma. Whereas my mother, on the other hand, is just an open book. She wears her heart on her sleeve. And just says whatever–
Chloe: Mom? Hi. It’s so weird I was just talking about you.
Nancy: Why haven’t you returned my calls?
Chloe: You came here from new york to ask me that in person?
Nancy: I needed to talk to you!
Chloe: I know, I’m sorry. I just–I really don’t feel like talking about philip. There’s no news, and it just upsets me, all right?
Nancy: This is not about philip! It’s about your father.
Chloe: My dad? What about him?
Nancy: I think he’s having an affair.
Jake: Yeah, that’s great. Keep us posted, and we’ll do the same.
Gabi: I just counted the votes. And without one more dimera on our side, we’re going to come up short.
Jake: Not necessarily.
Gabi: What do you mean?
Jake: Well, shin seems to think that ej’s shares might be in play after all.
Gabi: Wait, what–how?
Jake: Shin spoke to one of the dimera lawyers. Apparently, ej’s considering signing his shares over to his son johnny.
Abigail: What the hell are you talking about?
Evil ej: From the moment I came back to salem, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you.
Abigail: That’s insane. Just get away from me.
Evil ej: I know you’re married to my brother. And I’ve tried hard to push these feelings aside, but it’s impossible.
Abigail: Is this some kind of sick joke? I mean, you have a wife that you’re obsessed with. And you were dating nicole!
Evil ej: Only to distract myself, I’ve been using them to try and get you out of my head, but it didn’t work.
Abigail: You have totally lost it, just go and get some help, would you?
Evil ej: Abigail, please, I’m desperate to get close to you. That’s why I wanted to do johnny’s movie, but it didn’t happen.
Abigail: Will you–can you get out of my way?
Evil ej: Oh, how I longed to ravage you. I never thought I’d get the chance, yet here we are alone. And there’s no time like the present.
Ej: I signed the agreement. I know you advised against it and that you have my best interests at heart, but I believe my son does as well.
Belle: You are operating on emotion and not logic. And that is never a smart place to be when you’re making big decisions.
Ej: Johnny is trying to protect his family and his legacy. What’s illogical about wanting to support him in that?
Belle: You don’t find his sudden change of heart about his career and about you a little puzzling?
Ej: Are you saying that you think his intentions are less than honorable?
Abigail: I’m saying that you just handed over a hell of a lot of shares.
Ej: To my child. I never would have done it if I thought there was even the slightest chance he would undermine me.
Belle: Well, hopefully, this is all moot.
Ej: Meaning what?
Belle: Meaning I just talked to chad. Now, he didn’t tell me what he plans to say on the stand, but I get the distinct impression he’s actually on your side. You may just go free.
Ej: Here’s hoping. And while my brother is a wild card, my son is not. I trust that johnny is not only going to do what’s best for me, but also what’s best for the company.
