Johnny as jake: I would like a guarantee in writing that i will be made ceo of dimera after we take over.
Maggie: Yeah. Well, I’ll see what he says.
Johnny as jake: And now, let’s talk about titan.
Maggie: Victor has very strong reservations about putting an outsider, someone out of the family, in charge of his company. I’m–I’m afraid making gabi ceo of titan just may be off the table. Is that a dealbreaker?
Gabi: Sure as hell is.
Johnny as jake: Absolutely not.
Johnny as jake: Mm-hmm.
Maggie: I thought making gabi ceo of titan was one of your conditions.
Johnny as jake: It was, but I wouldn’t want something like that to sour the deal. As long as I’m made ceo of dimera enterprises, I got everything I want.
Ava: Not fast enough, but it’ll do.
Jake: What are you so happy about?
Nicole: What time are you talking to the lawyer? Great. Hopefully she has a strategy that to get the charges thrown out. In the meantime, I will try to find a way to prove that ava is the one who is setting you up. Don’t worry, rafe. We are going to clear your name, one way or another. Hey, just call me after you talk to the lawyer. Okay? Good luck.
Allie: Hey. Sorry. I didn’t mean to interrupt.
Nicole: No, that’s okay. I–I thought you were working today.
Allie: I am. I was just grabbing an early lunch. Were you talking to rafe?
Allie: How’s he doing?
Nicole: Not great. Even when the criminals accused him of planting evidence, I didn’t actually think they would arrest him. I mean, this is a nightmare.
Allie: I’m so sorry. But I mean, if he’s not guilty, then the cops are going to figure that out, right?
Nicole: [Scoffs] I’m not so sure about that.
Chanel: Mama, what’s going on?
Paulina: Nothing. I just thought it would be nice to take a family trip to miami. Get out of this cold weather. Well, hurry up and pack up some things.
Chanel: I’m not going anywhere. Now that I’ve served johnny with those divorce papers, it’s finally heating up around here.
[Knocks on door]
Lani: You back already? Mr. Coates, uh, what are you doing here?
Tr: But I did meet your cousin, though.
Chanel: What cousin?
Tr: Lani grant.
Chanel: Oh, no, you got the wrong information. Lani’s not my cousin. She’s my sister.
Lani: Mr. Coates?
Tr: I’m sorry to show up unannounced, lani, but there’s something important I have to discuss with you. And it can’t wait.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Lani: Mr. Coates.
> Tr: Tr.
Lani: Tr, I know you are in business with chanel’s husband, johnny, but if you’ve come here to try to talk me into asking her not to sue him–
Tr: That’s not why I came to see you.
Lani: Good, because I don’t have anything to do with chanel’s marriage or her divorce.
Tr: I can’t imagine she wouldn’t value your opinion.
Lani: [Scoffs] You don’t know chanel. Her opinion is the only one that she values.
Tr: Mm, like her mother before.
Lani: Okay. The point is even, if I wanted to influence her, which I don’t, I can guarantee you that I would have no effect.
Tr: But she is your sister, right?
Lani: Uh… who told you that?
Tr: Chanel told me herself.
Allie: Everyone at salem pd knows that rafe is a good cop. I mean, they have to realize that they made a mistake.
Nicole: Not just a mistake. Someone is framing him.
Allie: Who would do that to him?
Nicole: I can’t say for sure. Not yet anyway, but I’m working on finding some proof.
Allie: Okay, well, you don’t have to do it alone. There are so many people who care about rafe, and everyone will help you clear his name. I mean, you have me and ava.
Nicole: Honestly, allie, I don’t think ava’s gonna be much help.
Ava: Oh, just reading a silly article in the health section. “Ten ways to drive your lover crazy.”
Jake: Ha, is that good crazy or bad crazy?
Ava: A little of both.
Jake: Lucky rafe.
Ava: Lucky rafe. What are you doing home in the middle of the afternoon?
Jake: Unemployed, remember?
Ava: [Chuckles] So shouldn’t you be out pounding the pavement? Looking for a job so you can move you and your girlfriend outta here?
Jake: That might happen sooner than you think.
Ava: Oh, music to my ears.
Jake: You know, see, gabi and I, we got a plan. So as much as I’m loving these random run-ins between the two of us, you’re probably not gonna see us around here much longer.
Maggie: Well, I’m sure victor will be happy to learn that he doesn’t have to hand over titan to an outsider.
Johnny as jake: Well, I aim to keep everyone happy.
Maggie: Aren’t you forgetting someone?
Gabi: Thank you, maggie.
Johnny as jake: Am I?
Maggie: I thought gabi helped engineer this deal. Now, isn’t she gonna be upset when she learns that she’s not getting the titan job?
Johnny as jake: Don’t worry. I can handle gabi. The world is full of make or break moments.
Allie: But ava is rafe’s girlfriend.
Nicole: She is.
Allie: Okay, so why wouldn’t she help us in figuring out who’s framing him?
Nicole: Let’s just say, ava and rafe’s relationship is complicated.
Allie: Wait, are you saying–
Nicole: I’m–I’m not saying anything.
Allie: But you’re suggesting that tripp’s mother could be the one who’s framing him for this?
Nicole: Like I said, I don’t have any proof.
Allie: Okay, but that’s what you think.
Nicole: It’s just a hunch.
Allie: There has to be a reason. Why would rafe’s own girlfriend wanna frame him for a crime?
Nicole: Well, allie, just lately, I’ve been getting a sense that ava is just having some anger issues.
Allie: At rafe?
Nicole: And me.
Allie: What? Why would ava– why would ava be mad at you? I mean, it’s not like there’s anything going on you and rafe. Oh…
Jake: No more coffee?
Ava: Rafe was the one who’d usually put on a second pot.
Jake: Gotcha. Listen, I’m sorry about everything that’s going on with him. Didn’t see that coming.
Ava: Well, neither did he.
Jake: You know, if anybody was gonna get nailed for corruption, I would’ve thought–
Ava: It would’ve been me?
Ava: Eh. Yeah. That’s what you were gonna say. I know it, and you would’ve a fair point. But you and gabi, you’re not as pure as the driven snow either. If you remember, you and i were in the same business.
Jake: Emphasis on “were.”
Ava: And gabi?
Jake: What about her?
Ava: Well, she may not have been convicted of most of her crimes, but her rap sheet is almost as long as mine. Your girlfriend’s a killer with a nice wardrobe.
Maggie: I thought that you and gabi were equal partners.
Johnny as jake: Some partners are more equal than others. Trust me, I got gabi under control.
Maggie: Well, now that we have that straightened out, do we have anything else to discuss?
Johnny as jake: I think that pretty much covers it all.
Maggie: Great. Well, let me walk you out.
Johnny as jake: Oh, no, I– I know my own way out.
Maggie: All right. Well then, I’ll let victor know what we discussed.
Johnny as jake: I appreciate it. And…pleasure doing business with you.
Johnny: Well, now, if that doesn’t drive jake and gabi apart, I don’t know what will.
Paulina: Baby, what–what do you mean that things are just starting to heat up? I mean, you actually want to deal with the fallout from serving johnny the divorce papers?
Chanel: I mean, I’d obviously rather not, but I’m not gonna run from it either. I need to be able to keep an eye on him.
Paulina: Baby, that’s what lawyers are for. Oh, and if you ask me, what you need is something to take your mind off your snake-in-the-grass soon-to-be ex-husband. Like a little fun in the sun with your family.
Chanel: I don’t know. It just feels wrong to leave.
Paulina: Oh. Oh. Oh, I get it. Oh, you need to be in control, just like your mama.
[Laughs] Darling, if you need to micromanage your attorneys, you’re only a phone call away.
Chanel: No, it’s not just that. Even if I wanted to leave town, I’m obligated to stay contractually.
Tr: May I come in? I’d rather not have this conversation in the hallway. You don’t have to be wary of me, you know.
Lani: I’ve heard otherwise.
Tr: From paulina. Of course, she also neglected to mention that chanel was your sister.
Lani: I don’t see what my relationship with chanel has to do with you and johnny.
Tr: It doesn’T. It has to do with the relationship between you and me.
Lani: What are you talking about? We don’t have a relationship.
Tr: I know.
Lani: What am I missing here?
Tr: When I bumped into paulina, your mother, she told me that chanel was her only child, which obviously isn’t true.
Lani: Obviously, you have financial interest in chanel’s lawsuit because of your stake in johnny’s movie. Paulina probably just didn’t want you trying to get to chanel through me.
Tr: That’s not why she lied.
Gabi: How could jake double-cross me like this? After everything that we’ve been through, he just sells me out? Like–like I don’t matter? Like we don’t matter?
[Cell phone rings] The heck! This thing was dead. Johnny?
Johnny: Gabi, hey. I was just calling to find out how your visit with maggie went.
Gabi: [Sighs] It didn’T.
Johnny: What do you mean? I thought you said you went over there to talk to her.
Gabi: I did go to see her.
Johnny: But you didn’t tell her about my shares?
Gabi: No, that two-faced son of a bitch beat me to the punch!
Johnny: Gabi, did something happen?
Gabi: Oh, if you call somebody stabbing you in the back “something happening.”
Johnny: Where are you? I’ll be right there.
Allie: You and rafe?
Nicole: It was just one time. We are not having an affair. It’s just–I was scared. Rafe was there. He was comforting me. And one thing led to another.
Allie: I understand. But are you sure it’s just a one-time thing? Because, you know, sometimes you say it’s over, but the feelings are still there.
Nicole: Well, we were just discussing that right before he was arrested, but we are not going to have an affair behind ava’s back. We don’t even know if she knows what happened between us. But if she does, then she’s lashing out at rafe for betraying her with me, and I feel responsible to help.
Allie: You are a good person.
Nicole: Oh, I don’t–I don’t feel like it right now, but thank you. Allie, like I said, this is just a theory, so I have to ask: Can you please not say anything to anyone about this?
Allie: You mean, not even tripp?
Ava: Oh, what a surprise. Oh, my son, who is a full-fledged doctor is still going to make house calls.
Tripp: Oh, for you, always. But wait, you’re not sick, though, right?
Ava: No, not at all. And with you here, I couldn’t feel any better.
Tripp: I’m glad to hear it. I wasn’t sure you’d be home. I figured you’d be down at the station visiting rafe.
Ava: Yeah, he has a meeting with his lawyer today.
Tripp: I hope that goes well.
Ava: Yeah. Me too. So, dr. Johnson, to what do I owe the pleasure of this visit?
Tripp: Well, I’ve kind of made a really big life decision, and I just wanted you to be the first to know. , Well, among the first.
Tripp: I’m gonna ask allie to marry me.
Ava: [Sighs contentedly] Honey, that is wonderful. Oh, my goodness! I am so happy for you!
Tripp: Oh. Do you really mean that?
Paulina: You’re contractually obligated to stay in salem?
Chanel: That’s what they tell me.
Paulina: Honey, I’m pretty sure allie can’t make you run the bakery against your will.
Chanel: No, it’s not about the bakery. It’s the movie.
Paulina: Johnny’s movie? Well, I thought that was– what’s the expression– I thought it was “in turnaround.”
Chanel: Yeah. Well, I guess now it’s out, and he’s making it again.
Paulina: [Scoffs] So your soon-to-be-ex, that miserable dog who just threw away the best thing that ever happened to him, he still wants you to be in it?
Chanel: Yeah, I don’t know if johnny still does, but the studio definitely does. The guy who came me made that very clear.
Paulina: What guy?
Chanel: Oh, he actually said he knows you.
Paulina: Oh, yeah?
Chanel: Uh-huh. Yeah, he said the two of you go way back. His name was tr coates.
Lani: You know why my mother lied to you?
Tr: I knew your mother a long time ago. Over 30 years ago, to be exact, we had a relationship. So when chanel told me that you were paulina’s daughter, I did the math, and I realized that I could be your father.
Lani: [Scoffs] Mr. Coates– um, tr, I think you’re confused. You may have had a relationship with my mother, but my father is some guy named ray.
Tr: Ray coates.
Lani: Uh-huh. Tr.
Tr: That’s me, lani. I’m terrell raymond coates. When tough pain hits,
Nicole: I know this is a lot to ask. Ava is tripp’s mother, and I’m sure you don’t like hiding things from tripp.
Allie: I hate it.
Nicole: I’m sorry. I’m sorry. The last thing I wanna do is make you lie to your boyfriend, even if it’s a lie of omission. But please, allie, I’m– can you please do this for me?
Ava: Why wouldn’t I be happy that my son is gonna propose to his girlfriend?
Tripp: Because a few weeks ago, you said that you thought there was a little more than friendship going on between allie and chanel. And you thought that she was gonna break my heart.
Ava: Yeah, I did say that I suspected they might be more than friends.
Tripp: Mm-hmm, but the way you went on about it, you know, I wasn’t sure if you were talking about me and allie, or you and rafe.
Ava: I know you asked me that question, and the truth is, you were probably right. Rafe and I were going through some stuff, and I should not have projected it onto you.
Tripp: What kind of stuff? Were you afraid that he has feeling for someone else?
Ava: It doesn’t matter. I figured out a way to work through it. And I think allie is a great girl. I am always gonna be an overprotective mama, but I see that she makes you happy, and that’s all I could ever hope for. I want nothing but the best for you.
Tripp: Same, mom. Same.
Jake: Gabi? Johnny?
[Sighs] Where the hell are they?
Johnny: Gabi? Hey, are you okay?
Gabi: Do I look okay?
Johnny: You look upset.
Gabi: Oh, why would i be upset? Oh, maybe because the man that I’ve been with for almost a year, the man who claims to love me, just threw me outta the bus.
Johnny: What did jake do?
Gabi: What did he do? He just put a knife between my shoulder blades. That’s what he did.
Johnny: Just tell– tell me everything. What happened?
Gabi: I went over to see maggie. He was already there, so I hung back to listen. He didn’t know I was listening. And, you know, he was talking about the plan on how we’re gonna get victor on the board at dimera.
Johnny: Yeah. That’s part of the plan, right? Soften victor up for the kill.
Gabi: That was the plan. But then, maggie said that victor could not have me be the ceo of titan. And jake, you know what he said? He said that would be no problem, that it was not a dealbreaker.
Johnny: Are you serious? He said that?
Gabi: Yeah, he said that as long as he got what he wanted, he had no trouble handling me.
Johnny: That double-dealing bastard.
Paulina: You spoke to tr coates? When?
Chanel: This morning. He stopped by the bakery. He told allie and me that he’s holding us to our contracts.
Paulina: And my name came up?
Chanel: Yeah, he was saying how he knows you from back in the day.
Paulina: Oh, yeah? What else did he say?
Chanel: Uh, that he bumped into you yesterday. Oh, and that he met lani too.
Paulina: What about her?
Chanel: I don’t know what she told him, but he thought that she was my cousin.
Paulina: And what did you say to that?
Chanel: I told him that he was mixed up and that she’s my sister.
Paulina: Oh, no.
Chanel: Mama, what is it?
Lani: You’re ray? Hmm. Paulina’s told me all about you.
Tr: Listen, lani–
Lani: You need to get away from me. Do you hear me?
Tr: I know from what you’ve heard, you have every reason to be afraid–
Lani: You need to leave this apartment, now.
Tr: I’m sure paulina has said all kind of terrible things about me.
Lani: I said, get out! Do not make me get my gun!
Tr: Please, lani. I just want you to know that I am not the same man that I was when I was with your mother. I gave up the drugs. I got sober. I can’t tell you how much therapy I’ve been through. I promise you, I’m a different man now. One that you could be proud to call your father.
Trelegy for copd.
Nicole: I’m so sorry to put you in this position with tripp.
Allie: It’s okay. You didn’t mean to tell me about rafe and ava.
Nicole: No. Well, if I could just get some proof, then we wouldn’t have to keep it a secret.
Allie: There’s got to be a way to figure it out.
Nicole: I’m trying. I am, but it’s not like I can just go over to rafe’s and start looking through ava’s things, because if I show up there, she’s gonna know that I’m onto her.
Allie: Right. And I mean, she’s already suspicious of you.
Nicole: Yeah, exactly.
Allie: Well, what about me?
Nicole: What? No, allie you cannot go through ava’s things. You would never betray tripp like that.
Tripp: Yeah, so I was gonna ask allie’s parents in person for their blessing, but they’re out of town and I can’t get ahold of them.
Ava: Well, you will.
Tripp: But I figured that asking her grandfather was the next best thing.
Ava: And what did roman have to say?
Tripp: He said he was thrilled for us, and he wholeheartedly gave his blessing.
Ava: Of course he did because he knows that he could not ask for a better grandson-in-law. You are caring and a very loving man. And you’re a doctor. You’re gonna be a wonderful, wonderful father to henry.
Tripp: I really hope so. I– I love that little guy so much.
Ava: Having you in his life, I know he’s gonna grow to be an incredible man.
Tripp: Thank you for saying that.
Ava: Yeah. So when are you gonna pop up the question?
Tripp: Oh, well, was thinking about valentine’s day.
Ava: That’s very romantic.
Tripp: Yes, but not if i can’t find the right ring.
Ava: You haven’t bought one yet?
Tripp: Not yet. No, as a brand-new doctor, you know, I barely take home enough to make my loan payments. So I’m still trying to figure out what I can afford.
Ava: Hold that thought.
Johnny: It’s no wonder you’re so upset. And it’s one thing to be betrayed by your business partner, but when you’re sleeping with him too…
Gabi: He told me he loved me. How could he? I never thought he could do something like this.
Johnny: Beyond his type, I never fully trusted the guy.
Gabi: I did. You know what ironic? This morning, he told me he was worried about you.
Gabi: That we would be spending time together and he–that would leave him the odd man out.
Johnny: Well, I think that’s what you call projecting.
Gabi: I call it lying.
Johnny: Look, I’m sorry that he hurts you like this, but at least now, you can see jake for who he really is.
Gabi: A dimera?
Johnny: A second-rate dimera, so busy trying to prove himself that he can’t appreciate everything you bring to the table. Your business acumen. Your intellect. Not to mention your complete willingness to go for the throat. Jake is lucky to have you as a business partner. And if he can’t see that, then he doesn’t deserve you.
Gabi: You know what, you’re right. Yes. Yes. He does not deserve me, that backstabbing creep. I’m gonna tell him right now.
Johnny: No, gabi. Wait, wait. Hey. Maybe you shouldn’T.
Paulina: You told tr coates that lani’s your sister?
Chanel: Yeah. What is the big deal? It’s all out in the open now, isn’t it?
Paulina: Ye–yes. Well–oh, but–
Chanel: But what? I mean, what does it matter if some random stranger knows the truth? Mama?
Paulina: Go home right now.
Chanel: Wait, what?
Paulina: You heard me. Go home right now and pack your bag.
Chanel: What is the hurry?
Paulina: Just do it and be ready to go to the airport as soon as I get back.
Chanel: Wait, where are you going?
Paulina: To pick up lani. Oh.
Lani: Why would I want anything to do with you?
Tr: Please let me explain–
Lani: No. All these years, I didn’t know paulina was my mother. They told me she was my aunt. Her sister raised me as her own.
Tr: I didn’t know that.
Lani: My own mother gave her child away. And you wanna know why?
Tr: Because of me.
Lani: Because of you! Because she was so afraid of you, afraid that if you even found out that I existed, that you would never leave her alone– that you would keep threatening her, abusing her. And her worst fear was that if you found out that I was your daughter, that you would do the same thing to me. And then you come waltzing in here, telling me about all the self-help work you’ve done on yourself. And what? What? You just expect me to run into your arms? Call you daddy? Huh?
Tr: Please, lani. I realize I’m a stranger to you and everything you’ve been told makes you want to turn and run the other way, but I swear to you, I’m a changed man. And I just want to get to know my daughter. We’re eating and drinking foods and beverages
Jake: Gabi? Johnny?
[Sighs] Where are they?
Gabi: Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t confront that bastard right now?
Johnny: Look, you can do what you want, but if it were me, I wouldn’t be so quick to throw away my advantage.
Gabi: My advantage?
Johnny: You saw jake for who he really is. And I can’t imagine how much it must have hurt to hear him talking that way, but maybe honestly, it’s good that you did, ’cause now, you have the upper hand.
Gabi: So you think I should keep acting as dumb as jake thinks I am?
Johnny: Exactly. Let him think he’s the only one playing both sides. He does still have his shares, doesn’t he?
Gabi: For now.
Johnny: So why don’t we work behind his back to relieve him of them?
Gabi: Turnabout is fair play.
Johnny: You have the element of surprise. And you have something he doesn’t: Me. I think we could do great things together, gabi. Run this town. Maybe even shake up the whole world.
Gabi: All right, let’s do it. Let’s take everything.
Johnny: Yeah. Let’S.
Gabi: I will be in touch.
Johnny: Bye-bye, jakey.
Ava: Knew I was saving this for a reason.
Tripp: Mom, this is– this is beautiful.
Ava: Mm. It was my grandmother’S. And she gave it to me when I was a little girl, right before she died. My grandfather gave it to her when he proposed to her. Look at what the inscription says.
Tripp: “Amore mio.”
Ava: Mm. That’s what allie is. She’s your amore.
Tripp: Mom, this is amazing, but I–I can’t take this.
Ava: Why not? It is a family heirloom. That was your great-grandmother’S. Come on, it’s not like I’ve got a daughter I’m gonna pass it down to.
Tripp: Are you sure?
Ava: Of course. Nothing would make me happier than to see my future daughter-in-law with that on her finger.
Tripp: I–I can’t wait to give it to her. Thank you so much, mom.
Ava: Aw, baby, you don’t have to thank me. I am just–I’m so happy that you found someone who loves you as much as I do.
Allie: I brought some extra chowder.
Chanel: Oh, I’m not hungry, but thank you.
Allie: You okay?
Chanel: I don’t know. Can we talk?
Allie: Yeah. Yeah, of course. Come on. What’s going on?
Chanel: Well, I might need you to cover me at the bakery for a while.
Allie: How come?
Chanel: My mom was just here, and she wants me to go to miami with her.
Allie: What? When?
Chanel: Now. Like–like right now.
Allie: Really? Are you gonna go?
Chanel: At first, I didn’t want to, but now I’m thinking it might be a good idea to get away and put some distance between me and this whole terrible situation with johnny and the divorce and…other things.
Allie: Other things. Like sleeping with me?
Tr: Lani, I know how complicated this situation is.
Lani: No, it’s not complicated at all. You are not my father. I already have a father, and he is the best man that I know.
Tr: Look, I am happy to hear that, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t get to know each other. We can take the first steps now, today.
Paulina: Get the hell away from her! Avoiding triggers, but can’t keep migraine attacks away?
Paulina: You heard me. Stay the hell away from my daughter!
Tr: Oh, so you’re admitting she is your daughter.
Paulina: Did I not make myself clear? Get outta here now!
Tr: All right. You can kick me outta here, but that does not change the fact that lani is also my daughter.
Paulina: She is nothing to you, and she never will be!
Tr: All right. I know I missed a lot of years and I will never be able to get those back, but I’m gonna do whatever I have to do to be a father to you now. That’s a promise.
Paulina: Oh, baby. Oh, baby.
Gabi: [Sighs] Oh, got them.
Jake: There you are.
Jake: Hi. I’ve been looking everywhere for you.
Gabi: Have you?
Jake: Yeah. I stopped by the dimeras’. You and johnny weren’t there.
Gabi: Oh, you must have, uh, missed us. So what have you been up to?
Jake: Oh, well I stopped by ben’s new place to see him. I stopped back at home, ran into ava. You weren’t there. Like I said, been looking for you.
Gabi: That’s it?
Jake: Well, I’m here now.
Gabi: Hmm, busy day.
Tripp: Are you sure you’re okay with me taking this ring? I mean, what if you want it for yourself?
Ava: Oh, you don’t have to worry about that.
Tripp: Yeah, but I mean, a cop salary can’t be much more than a new doctor, so I mean–
Ava: Okay, I said you don’t have to worry about that.
Tripp: Are you okay?
[Chuckles dryly] My love life has been spotty, to say the least, and I’ve been hurt more times than I can even count, but I still believe in happily ever after. I love you.
Tripp: I love you too.
[Sighs] We could have had our happily ever after, but you threw it all away. And now, you’ll have to pay for that.
Chanel: I wasn’t talking about what happened between us, horton.
Allie: Are you sure?
Chanel: I am. Yeah. Yeah, I just meant between my divorce and this movie, and I really need to get away from johnny. But I promise you, that this isn’t about us sleeping together.
