Nancy: Good morning.

Craig: Morning, sleepy head.

Nancy: Have you been awake long, craig?

Craig: No. Just a few minutes.

Nancy: Craig, you were so sweet and loving last night. I–I’ve missed that.

Craig: I missed it too.

Nancy: I’ve missed you. And this.

Johnny as the devil: My, my. You’re a big one, aren’t you?

[Foil whips] It’s all about seizing the offensive and of course, thrust.

[Eerie music]

[Line ringing]

[Voicemail beeps]

Johnny: Gabriella, it’s johnny. I was just about to do a little fencing. Why don’t you blow off my boring old uncle jake and stop by the mansion? I’ll even let you play with my foil, if you ask nice.

[Doorbell rings] Guess she was already on her way.

Paulina: Do I need to say it again? Johnny dimera ripped out my little girl’s heart, so if he wants a divorce so damn bad then I want that nasty little piece of work drained of every trust fund cent he has. Now, are you lawyer enough for this job? Do I need to find someone else?

[Doorbell rings] Call you back. Speak of the devil.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Marlena: I hope you’ll accept these as a small peace offering.

Paulina: You really think waving a bouquet in my face is the wisest choice after what you did?

Marlena: Yeah. I’m so sorry for what happened at your wedding. I-I-I just–I wasn’t myself and-and I-I can’t tell you how terribly sorry I am for what I did.

Paulina: So that exorcism, it really took?

Marlena: Yeah, it did.

Paulina: That’s what they thought after the first one.

Marlena: But I’m whole now. I–I’m really whole, and I’m– I’m just so terribly sorry for what I’ve put you through. Paulina, may I come in?

Paulina: You can’t blame me for being cautious. When you were breaking bad as a beelzebub, you– you gave me a look that could kill, threatened my life, then blew it to hell.

Johnny: That’s the good thing about playing with bad girls. They never make you wait. W-what the hell are you doing here? For rob, it took years to find out

Nancy: What’s wrong?

Craig: Nothing. You wore me out last night. I’m tired.

Nancy: Oh, I-I understand. It’s okay. It’s just that… I love having you close to me again and feeling that you– I love you, craig wesley.

Craig: I love you, nancy.

Allie: Hey, hey. Where do you think you’re going?

Tripp: Oh, I’m sorry. I was trying not to wake you. I guess I’m losing my touch.

Allie: You’re definitely not losing your touch. But you used to be so much better at sneaking out at all hours of the night.

Tripp: You sound like I’m sneaking around.

Allie: Um, well, those days are behind us because you’re no longer a med student with crazy-ass hours.

Tripp: Yes, I do not miss that.

Allie: I know it’s been official for a couple of weeks, but we never got to celebrate. So…

Tripp: What?

Allie: Congratulations, dr. Johnson.

Abe: Hello, chanel.

Chanel: Hi.

Abe: Oh, you know, I-I was just on my way to your bakery. Get some almond croissants. I hear–I hear they’re out of this world.

Chanel: They are very popular.

Abe: I’m sure. Well, you take care, okay?

Chanel: Abe? I’m really glad I ran into you. I know you’re angry with me for ruining your wedding to my mom and I wanna apologize.

Marlena: I heard what happened at your wedding. And as a mother, I can’t imagine how much it hurt to have your daughter speak to you that way.

Paulina: The way my secret came out at my wedding was on that horned fool, but keeping the truth from abe and lying about it, that is on me. No doubt, oh, the devil– devil did me wrong, but I was the one who lost my mr. Right.

Johnny: Uh, mr. Coates, I’m-I’m-I’m sorry. Please, come in. It’s just that you are the last person I expected to see in salem.

Tr: Call me tr. Mr. Coates was my father. Nice place you have here.

Johnny: Thanks…tr. I-I like to call it “the house that nonno built.”

Tr: And nonno would be?

Johnny: My late grandfather. He was one of a kind.

Tr: Hmm, god rest his soul.

Johnny: I don’t think that he and god were on very good terms.

Tr: I’m more concerned about our terms, johnny.

Johnny: Our terms?

Tr: You and I had a deal and I’m here to see that you keep your end of our bargain. Because no matter how interesting your nonno might be, the only family lore I’m interested in is, “possessed: The marlena evans story.”

Trelegy for copd.

Tr: These last months, I was on location down under. It was summer and it was hotter than hades. And I was off the grid and unreachable. Hmm. So you can imagine my surprise when I got back to civilization, and one of my assistants told me that you left a message that you were shelving the film.

Johnny: I can explain–

Tr: No, I don’t want your explanation. I want my movie.

Johnny: And I understand that, but you see the thing is I kinda promised my grandmother that I wouldn’t tell the story about what happened with her and the devil.

Marlena: Paulina, I am so sorry that you lost abe. I-I saw the– I saw the love between you. The strength of it. Do you suppose that in time, the two of you could hope to find your way back together?

Paulina: I opened up to you once before about my love life and now I’m a very single lady.

Marlena: Again, I’m sorry. I will never forgive myself for the– the way that I betrayed your confidence.

Paulina: Well, it wasn’t you, was it? But I will say this, I know that man still loves me seven ways to sunday and I go to bed every night, I wake up every morning, hoping he’ll remember that, but he has made it crystal clear he’ll never trust me again.

Abe: Look, what happened with your mother and me, it’s not your fault. All you did was tell the truth, which is something paulina should’ve done a long time ago.

Chanel: Maybe, but it was her truth to tell, not mine.

Abe: You had no choice in the matter.

Chanel: Even if the devil made me do it, I saw how happy you and mama both were that day. And I see how unhappy you both are now. And well–

Abe: Well what?

Chanel: I think all that bad karma came back around and bit me.

Abe: What do you mean?

Chanel: Don’t tell me you haven’t heard that my husband dumped me out of the blue? That my marriage crashed and burned.

Tripp: A caduceus. Wow, this is awesome.

Allie: Yeah, I thought– I don’t know–I thought maybe you could pin it to your jacket since it’s an ancient symbol of medicine.

Tripp: Actually, it’s– it’s not.

Allie: What do you mean?

Tripp: Well, even though the caduceus has come to be the symbol of medicine in modern times, the ancient symbol is actually the rod of asclepius. Not sure if I’m pronouncing that right but it’s not important.

Allie: Hey, sure it is.

Tripp: No, no, it’s not. No, what is important is that you got me this very sweet gift and I love it.

Allie: Tripp, tell me what the caduceus– tell me what it actually means.

Tripp: Well, with the two snakes in ancient times, it’s associated with alchemy and thieves, and liars.

Allie: You are the smartest, fiercest, most beautiful woman I know. Anybody would be lucky to be with you.

Chanel: Do you really mean that?

Allie: Yeah, I do.

Tripp: Allie, are you okay?

Brady: I’m really glad that your parents are back on track. I know you’ve been stressed about phillip’s disappearance, so this is one less thing you have to worry about, right?

Chloe: Yeah, it is. And since you’ve been so supportive, I wanted to know if you wanted to join my parents and me for breakfast? They-they’re leaving town but they wanna meet at the pub.

Brady: Yeah, sure. No, I’d love to come.

Chloe: Okay, cool. And can you do me a little favor? Can you not mention my mom’s meltdown when she first got back to salem? You know, the awful misunderstanding with my dad?

Brady: Yes, chloe, I have no intention of bringing that up.

Chloe: Okay, thank you. I think it’s better if we just all pretend like it never happened, you know, just be happy for them.

Brady: Agreed. Let’s go eat.

Chloe: Okay.

[Soft music]

Nancy: Craig…

Craig: Hmm?

Nancy: I’m so sorry that I doubted you.

Craig: Nancy, no apologizing.

Nancy: But I have to. Sweetheart, look, I’m ashamed of the way I-I ran at chloe. I-I confronted you angrily. I should have trusted you. I should have trusted us. And I fear that– no, no, I am not gonna talk about my insecurities anymore, except maybe to my therapist.

Craig: Okay, okay. Listen to me. There is no reason for you to feel insecure, okay? You, you’re a wonderful person, darling. You got a great, kind heart, and you make me laugh. That wicked sense of humor of yours which, you know, is one of the reasons why I love you most.

Nancy: I love hearing that, craig, but there’s– there’s still a part of me that needs to feel like you’re still attracted to me.

Craig: Oh, okay. If–if you’ve been feeling that lately, that one’s on me. All right? Nancy, I love you, and I’m truly sorry.

Nancy: I’m just so happy we can talk so openly about this, but now, as much as I’d like to stay here in bed with you all day, we need to get dressed so we can go have breakfast with our daughter.

Craig: Yes, we do.

Nancy: Craig?

Craig: Mm-hmm.

Nancy: You just make me so happy. And honey, I just feel so guilty.

Craig: Uh-uh–uh-uh. No guilt–no guilt.

Nancy: I love you.

Craig: I love you too.

[Soft music]


Allie: I’m-I’m sorry. It’s-it’s just, uh–

Tripp: No, no, I’m–I’m–I’m sorry. I’m sorry. You–you gave me this awesome gift. And I just go all nerd on you with useless trivia. I’m–I’m sorry. I’m sorry you’re stuck with such a geek for a boyfriend.

Allie: Hey, no, there’s– there’s no one that I’d rather be stuck with.

[Tender music]

Chanel: I don’t understand it, abe. It–it wasn’t like it was just some fling. We talked about our future, what we wanted. We–we both wanted the same things. We had real plans. Right before the reception, johnny told me how much he loved me, and then he just totally humiliated me. Like everything we shared was a lie.

Abe: Well, you know, I can’t imagine how that felt how that must feels now.

Chloe: Like hell. That’s how it feels. And that’s why mama thinks we should bleed johnny for every penny that he has.

Abe: Is that what you want?

Marlena: Paulina, I can’t tell you how grateful I am to at least try to make amends.

Paulina: Well, I think I have a vase those might fit in.

Marlena: For what it’s worth, I know how happy you made abe.

Paulina: Did he say that?

Marlena: No. Um-um, no, sorry. I haven’t–I haven’t spoken to him. I mean, after what I put the two of you through, I’ve just kept my distance. It’s also why I didn’t go to the party for johnny and chanel.

Paulina: Whoo-hoo, and what a party it was. I’m sure you heard.

Marlena: No, heard what?

Paulina: Instead of a celebration, it turned into one big nightmare… for me and my daughter, anyway.

Marlena: What happened?

Paulina: I won’t go into the gory details. Let’s just say your grandson broke my little girl’s heart.

Tr: You promised your grandmother you wouldn’t make the movie?

Johnny: I did.

Tr: Now that’s disappointing. And I hate being disappointed. So I suggest you rectify the situation.

Johnny: There’s not much I can do. Things got a little crazy when the devil came back and possessed my grandma again.

Tr: Again? That’s even more reason to do the film. You’ve got a built-in sequel. Hell, it practically writes itself. And if we put our heads together, I’m sure that we can come up with “possessed part three” without too much trouble.

Johnny: I do have some thoughts.

Tr: So what are you doing about it? Sitting around in your pajamas all day will not gonna make you rich and famous. You gotta get up off your ass and think big, son.

Johnny: Oh, don’t worry. I have plenty of ideas.

Tr: It takes more than ideas. It takes some guts and energy, which is what I thought you had the day you knocked on my door to pitch your project.

Johnny: Well, no guts, no glory. Isn’t that what they say?

Tr: I told you when we met that you needed to be motivated, to stay motivated, that the film business was cutthroat.

Johnny: And I told you that cutting throats wouldn’t be a problem for me.

[Eerie music]

Looking to get back in your type 2 diabetes zone?

Tripp: Oh, now that was the best possible way to spend the morning, and i won’t even be late for work. Although it would be totally worth it.

Allie: Go, go save the world with your mad doctor skills.

Tripp: Well… could you?

Allie: Yeah.

[Gentle music]

Tripp: Now, you know, I have a couple of minutes, so if you want, I can wait for you to get ready and drop you off at the bakery.

Allie: Oh, I’m actually spending the day home with henry. Nicole had some work emergency, and the babysitter is sick.

Tripp: Is chanel gonna be okay?

Allie: Yeah, I texted her earlier. She said she’s got it.

Tripp: I mean–I actually meant, you know, what happened with johnny.

Allie: Oh, yeah. God, tripp, he–he really screwed her up. So sweet of you to ask.

Tripp: Pree’s your best friend, right? And you love her. So that means she’s important to me, too.

[Delicate music]

Chanel: At–at first, I–I didn’t want johnny to pay, but then allie told me she saw him kissing some girl. I mean, already? God, it’s just–it’s all so horrible and complicated.

Abe: Yeah. Hey, come here. Come here. Yeah, it’s okay, it’s okay.

Chanel: Oh, god. I’m sorry. I hate falling apart like this.

Abe: Don’t be sorry. You know, the way johnny treated you, nobody should be treated that way, but remember, you’re not alone in this. You have your mom. You have your friends, and your family. I know how much allie loves you. And I am so glad that you have such a good friend to help you through this.

Chanel: Yeah, I’m very grateful.

Abe: You know, lani and i are– well, we are closer than ever, and I hope you and i can stay close, too. If that’s what you want.

Chanel: It’s definitely what I want.

Abe: [Chuckles]

Marlena: I don’t understand this. You know, when–when johnny came home from italy, he–he told us how–how much he loved chanel, how happy he was to be married to her. Oh, I’m so sorry.

Paulina: Not as sorry as that fickle young man’s gonna be once I get through with him because–now don’t get offended, ’cause I know he’s your grandson, but I’m gonna make that boy pay for what he did to my daughter.

Brady: I hope it’s okay that I join you for breakfast here.

Nancy: Of course. I was telling chloe that I hoped you would be here too.

Brady: Thank you. That’s kind of you.

Craig: It’s great to see you, brady.

Nancy: You two were privy yesterday to my meltdown. And I–I wanted to say that I’m ashamed if I was–if I was any way accusatory of my–my good and honest husband. And, I also wanna say to my daughter, which is very close to what you said to me, brady, when I got to salem and was sort of out of control, like I said, and that is, sweetheart, don’t ever make accusations against the person that you love unless you have strong evidence that you’re–you’re not imagining that they betrayed you. I guess what I’m trying to say in all of this is, don’t ever be like your mom. Don’t let your insecurities take over and–and doubt the devotion of the person that loves you.

Chloe: Okay, thanks. Got it, mom.

Nancy: I know, sweetheart, that you’re not insecure like me. I mean, you’re beautiful, and you’re smart–

Chloe: Stop it. So are you.

Nancy: But I don’t always feel that way. And I impose too much on your dad to–to reassure me.

Craig: Nancy, you don’t impose on me ever. I obviously have been deficient as of late, especially in making you feel secure about our love for each other. Our marriage. But I love you, and… I’m deeply, deeply, sorry that I hurt your feelings.

Nancy: You’re the best man that I know, craig wesley, and I love you so much.

Craig: I love you with all my heart, nancy wesley. All my heart.

[Warm music]

Is now a good time

for a flare-up?

Craig: Well, this looks delicious.

Nancy: Oh, it does, doesn’t it?

Craig: Mm-hmm.

[Cell phone beeps] Oh. Oh. [Sighs] I–you know what? This is about a patient I have to call in. I’m gonna step outside for a second, okay? Um–

Nancy: Of course.

Craig: Honey, I’ll be right back. Please start eating. Don’t let this get cold, right? I’ll be right back.

Nancy: Hurry back, sweetheart, please.

Chloe: Mom, I’m so happy for you and for dad.

Brady: Me too, nancy. It’s great to see you’re working it out.

Nancy: Me too, and I’m so glad also. In fact, I’m over the moon, and I really have the two of you to thank for all your support, especially you, darling, for always being there for me.

[Eerie music]

Tr: So what’s it gonna be, johnny? You willing to pay the price to get what you want? Or are you gonna lay around on your daddy’s money?

Johnny: Maybe you’re right. Maybe I gave up too soon. Subject matter was brilliant, if I do say so myself. But what do you suggest I tell my grandmother?

Tr: Well, I’m sure your dear old granny thinks you’re a good boy. So if it’ll make things easier for you, I’ll be the bad guy. It’s not like I don’t have experience in breaking promises to little old ladies or anybody else who doesn’t understand my dream.

Johnny: Whatever it takes, huh?

Tr: Gotta crack a few eggs, johnny. Not that I would be anything but a gentleman to your grandmother. What’s the worst that’s gonna happen anyway? She skip church bingo so she can crack a cane over your head?

Johnny: You, sir, do not know marlena evans like I do. The woman’s got plenty of fire, trust me.

Tr: Oh, I don’t doubt that she’s a tough old bird. After all, she did outsmart the devil twice.

[Laughs] But now she’s got to deal with me, and this is how it’s gonna go down. You gonna tell granny marlena that you can’t get out of this deal and that if you even try to screw me over on this film, I will ruin you.

Johnny: You’d really do that? You’d ruin me?

Tr: I am capable of many things. But hell, no, man, I ain’t gonna ruin you. I need you. But that’s what you’re gonna tell your grandma.

Johnny: Oh, you had me worried there for a second.

Tr: Nothing to worry about. We’re a team. I take care of my own so long as you don’t disappoint me. What do you say?

[Uneasy music]

Johnny: Man, I feel like I’m making a deal with the devil.

Tr: I may act like a badass, johnny, but I’m actually a very gentle soul unless I’m crossed.

Paulina: Oh, oh.

Abe: Paulina.

Paulina: Hello. I–I was just headed into the bakery to see chanel.

Abe: Oh, wait, wait, you just missed her. She–she wasn’t feeling well, and she headed home.

Chanel: Oh, what are you doing, dupree? Stop it.

[Knock at door] Tripp, what are you doing here?

Tripp: I hope you don’t mind me dropping in like this, but there’s just something I’m wanted to tell you. My asthma felt anything but normal.

Chloe: Dad’s phone call is certainly taking a long time, right?

Brady: Mm-hmm.

Nancy: That’s the way it usually is. They call with one question, turns into a hundred.

Brady: Well, it’s a shame his eggs are getting cold.

Nancy: Not just his eggs. The man forgot his jacket. He’s gonna get a chill.

Chloe: You know what? I’ll bring him his jacket after I keep eating his eggs. I’ll be right back.

Nancy: Thank you, sweetheart. This is wonderful.

Brady: I know. The pub has the best food.

Nancy: That’s so true. That’s not what I meant. Yesterday, brady, I would have been absolutely positive that craig was lying to me about that being a work call, but today, I’m perfectly calm. Because my loving wonderful husband has gone out of his way to show me how much he loves me.

Craig: I know, I know, honey. I miss you too. I do–I do.

[Melancholy music]

Chanel: What did you wanna talk about?

Tripp: I didn’t just wanna say this over the phone. I wanted to talk to you about in person.

Chanel: Okay.

Tripp: Allie and I– we’re both here for you, okay? And what her brother did to you was the worst. And I just wanted you to know that you deserve a hell of a lot better than johnny dimera, okay?

[Soft music]

Johnny: What can I tell you, grandma? I got caught up in the romance of italy being with a beautiful woman. One minute, I was eating gelato with chanel, the next minute, I was proposing. And by the time we got back home, I realized that I had made a huge mistake.

Marlena: Well, it’s–it’s one thing to acknowledge a mistake, but johnny, you were cruel.

Johnny: Not my finest hour, I admit. And I’m sorry for that, for hurting chanel. But I’m even sorrier that I’m gonna hurt you, grandma.

Marlena: Me?

Johnny: By breaking a promise that I made.

Marlena: By breaking what promise?

Johnny: The one about my movie.

Paulina: Did chanel tell you that she and that no-good dimera boy are getting a divorce?

Abe: Yeah, she did. I’m sorry.

Paulina: Phony little creep. He gave me his word that he would make my little girl happy. Well, I guess a man’s word isn’t–isn’t what it used to be. At least for some men.

Abe: Well, right, right. But, you know, I–I–i did do my best to give chanel some comfort.

Paulina: Well, if you tried, I’m sure that you did. My baby–she thinks the world of you.

Abe: As I do of her. Hey, I, you know, heard about your near miss with the dimera chandelier. I’m–I’m glad to see your ankle is okay.

Paulina: Well, lani– she’s just too modest to admit it, but she saved my life.

Abe: Yes, I–I heard that, too. Well, I should go, and have a nice day, okay?

Paulina: You too, abe.

Tr: Paulina?

Paulina: Oh, my god. Ray?
