Chloe: Did you just refer to yourself as our new boss?

Kristen: Mm-hmm. That’s right, kids. You both are working for me. And I like my coffee with cream, no sugar.

Brady: Okay. Okay. You’ve had your fun. All right, you need to get outta here because we actually have some work to do.

Kristen: Well, so do I. And as I said, I’m in charge here now. And if you don’t believe me, give gabi a call.

Sonny: We have to talk.

Gabi: Now is not a good time, sonny.

Sonny: This is an emergency.

Gabi: Is ari okay?

Sonny: Oh, she’s fine. She’s fine. She’s at camp. This is about business.

Gabi: Okay. I’m listening.

Sonny: Okay. Well, I had my eye on a very small but very promising company out in london. And the deal was all but closed until someone swooped in and scooped it out from underneath me.

Gabi: And?

Sonny: Oh, and… I think that person was you.

Jake: Ava, I don’t like that you feel that I’m not serious about this relationship. And I really don’t want you feeling like an also-ran, because you’re not. And I already told you gabi… is not the love of my life. And gwen certainly wasn’t either, but… maybe you could be. Maybe you are.

Ava: You’re saying you wanna marry me?

Jake: I’m saying that… I want you to believe as much as I do that I’m serious about this relationship and we have a future.

Ava: Okay. But rings. Come on. Don’t you think that’s a little soon?

Jake: Not for me. It’s you, ava. You’re my first choice and my only choice. I don’t wanna be with anybody else, so yeah, from here on out, I only wanna be with you.

Eric: Just take it easy. Okay? Nicole, everything will be fine.

Greg: You two know each other? What, is she your wife or something?

Eric: No, she’s my friend. Listen, neither one of us want any trouble, just… just let her go.

Greg: Well, then tell your friend to give me her purse, or I’ll shoot her–now!

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

[Soft orchestration]

Ava: Jake, you do not need to buy me a diamond ring just ’cause I was feeling insecure.

Jake: I know I don’t have to. I want to.

Ava: Oh, so you wanna get married?

Jake: Eventually.

Ava: Well, eventually.

Jake: Look, I don’t want there to be any pressure. All right? It could be a year from now, two years from now. Whatever you’re comfortable with.

Ava: But it would be an engagement ring?

Jake: Yeah. A way for us to signal to the world that we plan on being husband and wife. More importantly, us saying to each other that we are committed to this relationship. In it for the long haul.

Ava: You sure this is what you want?

Jake: You are what I want…now and forever. So yeah, let’s make it official.

Sonny: Okay. Listen to me. Did you…or did you not buy this company?

Gabi: Buy it? I have never even heard of it.

Sonny: Come on, gabi. You’re trying to make a good impression as ceo. And what better way than to snatch a promising acquisition outta your biggest rival’s hands?

Gabi: All right, you gotta go–you’re wasting my time. I’m busy.

Sonny: Oh, I will…as soon as you admit it–you got up early this morning, which would’ve been afternoon in london, and you closed the deal.

Gabi: All right. You wanna know who I was dealing with this morning? Kristen dimera.

Sonny: Kristen dimera?

Gabi: Yeah! That psycho is out of prison because apparently the governor granted her a pardon.

Sonny: I mean, yeah. It’s a bit shocking.

Gabi: What’s even more shocking is I walked in here and I found her sitting in this chair.

Sonny: Is she after your job?

Gabi: That’s what I thought. But actually, she wanted something else. Back in at basic black. And li and I agreed that it was not worth fighting with her about it. So we just…well, she’s chloe and brady’s problem right now.

Kristen: Well, I just left gabi’s office, and she approved of my new position.

Brady: Why would she ever do that?

Kristen: Oh, it’s simple, brady. She owed me. I’m sure you heard about the last dimera shareholding meeting. Yeah, ej and chad, they were trying to boot gabi out, and they failed, thanks to me. And now she is just showing her gratitude.

Chloe: In other words, you didn’t give her a choice.

Brady: Kristen, I don’t know what gabi promised you, but nicole and I run basic black. We have multiyear deals. It would cost dimera a fortune to buy us out. The board would never approve it. Nice try though.

Kristen: [Laughing] You think I’m trying to replace you and nicole? Oh, don’t worry. You and blondie are still “co-ceos.”

Brady: You just said–

Kristen: I’m your boss. Yes, that’s true. You are looking at dimera’s new executive in charge of basic black.

Brady: Ooh. What in the hell does that mean?

Kristen: I’m gonna tell you what it means. It means that you, nicole, and chloe here are all gonna have to report to me.

Eric: Just lower the gun and walk away. There’s no harm, no foul.

Greg: You’re lying to me again, just like you did at the pub.

Nicole: What are you talking about?

Greg: Your friend here caught me stealing tips, and he acted all nice like he wanted to help me.

Eric: ‘Cause I do.

Greg: Then why’d you follow me? Huh?

Eric: I didn’T. I just went home for a run.

Greg: Bull! I made a break for it, and you tailed me. As soon as I let her go, you’re calling the cops. Forget that. I’ve been to prison before. I’m not going back.

Eric: I don’t want you to go back to prison. Really… I’m just trying to help you.

Nicole: I know him. He’s telling the truth.

Greg: Your purse now, or I blow her away!

Eric: I get you, man. I understand. You need the money. Which means you don’t have a job. No one’s gonna hire you when you have a record. How else are you supposed to put food on the table and keep a roof over your head? Listen to me. There’s a solution. There’s a way out. And no one has to get hurt. I didn’t call the cops. I won’T. I swear it. Right now, I just want you to put that gun away and let her go.

When moderate to severe

ulcerative colitis persists…

Eric: No cops. I swear. How about you just hand me the gun?

Nicole: Oh, thank god.

Eric: Hand it over just nice and slowly. Nicole!

Nicole: Oh!


Ava: I don’t know. I don’t know, jake. You know, we haven’t even said, “I love you,” and you wanna get engaged.

Jake: I love you.

Ava: What?

Jake: Seriously, that– I was trying to tell you back at the apartment. I didn’t wanna scare you off.

Ava: So you love me?

Jake: Yeah. Don’t you see? It’s what I was trying to say to you when I was telling you how lucky I am to know you, the real you. I was trying to explain to you all the reasons I love you.

Ava: I love you too.

Jake: Really?

Ava: Really.

Jake: You okay?

Ava: Yeah. I just–I don’t know. This is new to me, you know? I don’t really know what to say or, uh…what to do.

Jake: You don’t have to say or do anything. If you’re on board with this, all you have to do is nod that pretty little head. I’ll go to the jewelry store and surprise you with a diamond. All right, then. Sit tight. Be right back.

Sarah: What if I did it? What if killed abigail?

Maggie: She was your cousin. You loved her. There is no way you would’ve ever hurt her.

Sarah: Not in my right mind, but we both know I’m not.

Maggie: Your medication is working. Your hallucinations are under control. Now, I promise you, sarah, everything is gonna work out.

Sarah: You don’t know that. I…I don’t know that. And I’m so–I’m so scared, mom.

Maggie: You’re not to blame. Now, none of this is your fault.

Sarah: Oh, that much I know. This is all on kristen… and gwen.

Xander: What are you doing here, gwen?

Gwen: I need to talk to you.

Xander: I have nothing to say.

Gwen: It won’t take long. I promise it’s really important.

Xander: [Heavy sigh] Just turn around while I throw on some clothes, yeah?

Gwen: Well, it’s nothing I haven’t seen before.

Xander: Do you wanna talk to me or not?

Brady: We’re not impressed with your little title, kristen.

Chloe: Yeah. Obviously, gabi gave it to you to get you off her back.

Brady: Nicole and I still run what’s important around here.

Kristen: Yeah. Subject to my approval of course.

Brady: All right, I’m done with this. You know, we’re gonna go get some coffee. Okay? If that’s all right.

Chloe: I would love that.

Kristen: Uh…excuse me. We’re not done yet. See, I have a very important announcement.

Brady: What is it? What’s your announcement?

Kristen: I have made my first executive decision.

Chloe: Oh, exciting. I can’t wait to hear it.

Kristen: And guess what, chloe? I can’t wait to say it. You’re fired.


It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle

Chloe: What? No. No way. She can’t fire me. Can she?

Brady: No, no, she can’T. Those contracts I mentioned– it gives nicole and me final say on all personnel decisions.

Kristen: Oh, I know.

Chloe: Then why would you say that?

Kristen: Would you relax? I was just having a little fun. Engaging in creative visualization. See, I use mental images to create the future I want where you are nothing but a bad memory.

Chloe: Wow. Did you miss the part where you have no power to force me out?

Kristen: Well, I can make your life so miserable that you’ll wanna quit.

Sarah: That’s another thing that’s stressing me out–gwen.

[Sniffles] Xander and I ran into her last night.

Maggie: I can’t believe she was pardoned.

Sarah: Neither can I. She’s caused so much pain and suffering, all because she just wanted to hold on to xander. What if–what if she goes after him again?

Maggie: Well, she’d be a fool because she knows he loves you.

Sarah: [Sniffles] I should have just married him when I had the chance. He wanted to finish the wedding. You wanted to finish the wedding. I was the one that wanted go down to the police station to answer all their questions.

Maggie: Yeah, but you wanted to do whatever you could to help.

Sarah: But I didn’T. Everyone wants to know if I killed my cousin, and I can’t tell them.

Maggie: You didn’T. And I’m sure of it.

Sarah: Yes. But lucas saw me at the crime scene the night of the murder, mom.

Maggie: Lucas was drunk.

Sarah: Yeah. But it’s a really specific memory. He said that he saw me running down the stairs, upset. And as I ran out the door, I-I dropped something. Possibly be the murder weapon.

Maggie: That’s impossible.

Sarah: But it’s not.

[Maggie exhales] It’s not, mom. During… one of my hallucinations… I threatened chanel dupree with a knife. What if I did the same to abigail? What if I stabbed her, thinking that she was kristen?

Maggie: May I ask you something? Have you been fully cooperating with the police?

Sarah: Yes.

Maggie: And has anyone accused you of a crime?

Sarah: No.

Maggie: Mm. Well, then you need to live your life. You need to have your wedding just as you planned.

Sarah: Now?

Maggie: I’m available.

Sarah: Mom, I–[Mutters] But–

Maggie: No, no, no, no, no. No buts. You, my darling, you need to be happy. And there’s no reason that you can’t be. So you go out there, and you find that xander… and we will have a do-over. You will be married within the hour. So how is that for a way to relieve your stress?

Sarah: It’s perfect, mom. Thank you.

Maggie: Oh, my sweet.

Sarah: [Sniffling] Love you.

Maggie: I love you too.

[Sarah chuckles]

[Soft, emotional music]

Maggie: [Sighs] Ohh…

Xander: All right. You can turn around now. So what’s so important?

Gwen: Did you read the story this morning in the “intruder”?

Xander: Oh, about you and all the other criminals being released from prison? Yeah. I saw it. Made me sick.

Gwen: No. I meant about sarah being brought in for questioning about my sister’s murder.

Xander: She wasn’t brought in–she went there voluntarily. She wants to help the police figure out who killed her cousin.

Gwen: The story implied she’s a suspect.

Xander: It’s the “intruder.” I’m surprised they didn’t imply that she’s an alien from outer space. Just ignore what you read, gwen. Sarah’s innocent.

Gwen: Are you sure? She’s been suffering from hallucinations.

Xander: How’d you know about that?

Gwen: Because she told me when she came to visit me in the prison. Is it true that she sees kristen everywhere wanting to kill her?

Xander: You have some nerve bringing that up when it’s all your bloody fault.

Gwen: You’re right. And if I’m the reason that… sarah snapped, causing her to kill abigail, I just would feel… so terrible. I mean, I’m free, and… my sister’s dead, and… I just wish I could have been there. You know, maybe I could have helped or done something. And I would–I would have helped her. I would’ve tried to save her. I would’ve done everything in my power to save her.

Nicole: Ow.

Eric: Are you okay?

Nicole: Yeah. Eric, I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry he got away, and it’s all my fault.

Eric: No, it’s not your fault.

Nicole: Look, you could have gone after him, and then you didn’T. You stayed here to help me.

Eric: I wasn’t gonna leave you here. I wasn’t gonna leave you alone.

Nicole: Thank you. I mean, he just– he just came out of the bushes, and I was…I was so scared. And I don’t know what would’ve happened if you wouldn’t have come when you did.

Eric: Hey. It’s okay. It’s okay. I’m here. I’m here, and I’m not going anywhere. Migraine hits hard, so u hit back with ubrelvy

Rafe: Get your damn hands off my wife.

Nicole: Oh–


Chloe: I don’t know what you think you’re gonna accomplish by trying to force me out.

Brady: You would just be hurting the company, kristen. She’s a very valuable asset here.

Kristen: You’ve always been blind to her shortcomings. You thought she could sing too.

Brady: We need chloe here.

Kristen: No, we don’T. She’s just in the way.

Chloe: Yeah, right. In the way of you trying to get brady back. It’s so obvious that’s what this is all about– your sick obsession with him.

Kristen: I’m sick? You’re the one who moved in on my family. Do you actually think you can replace me, chloe?

Chloe: Do you actually think that getting me to quit is gonna give you another shot with brady? This is ridiculous. You can pull any desperate, juvenile stunt that you want. It’s not gonna change a thing. He and I will be together. And there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.

Sonny: It must be hard… you know, knowing the two of them are together.

Gabi: Jake and ava? I admit at first I was angry, disgusted at the thought of that skank being in his bed. But the more I thought about it, more I realized that jake and I were never really right for each other.

Sonny: Well, then why’d you invite him back to dimera?

Gabi: Just because we didn’t work as a couple–I mean, in business we make a great team. And besides, he isn’t the only one that’s moved on. I am with shin now.

Sonny: Oh–ugh!

[Coughs] Eww! Mr. Shin?

Gabi: Seriously? Are you–no. He’s like 100 years old. His son, li.

Sonny: Oh, duh. Li.

Gabi: Yes.

Sonny: Right. Wow. Yeah. No, he’s hot. How long has that been going on?

Gabi: A little over a month.

Sonny: Okay.

Gabi: What?

Sonny: No, I’m just saying, you know, do you really think that’s a good idea? Getting involved with someone you’re in business with?

Gabi: I can’t help that I am attracted to driven, ambitious men. And shin, he’s not my superior. He’s my equal. Okay? So there is no ulterior motives at play. There isn’t an imbalance of power. We’re just colleagues who enjoy each other’s company outside of the office.

Sonny: Is it serious?

Gabi: Well, I mean, I like him, we’re having a fun time. But is he the love of my life? No. No. There was only one of those.

Sonny: Stefan?

Gabi: Yeah. Stefan. There will never be another love like that for me again.

Jake: Well, I picked you a winner.

Ava: Yeah?

Jake: Yeah. I picked out the most beautiful ring they had, and hopefully you agree. What do you think?

Ava: Sorry, jake. I cannot accept that.

Xander: Here.

Gwen: It’s my fault. Oh, god. It’s all my fault.

Xander: Just–gwen, pull it together.

Gwen: Those poor children. I mean, my own niece and nephew.

[Sniffling] Their lives are never gonna be the same, and… I did this to them. My god, I’M…I’m a monster. I’m a monster.

Xander: [Sighs] Come here. Hi, sweetheart.

Sarah: No, don’t sweetheart me. Why is she here? Why aren’t you wearing a shirt?

Xander: I was fresh out the shower, I heard a knock at the door–I had no idea it was gwen.

Sarah: Okay. And when you saw it was gwen, why didn’t you tell her to go to hell and slam the door in her face?

Xander: Because she told me she had something very important to tell me, right?

Gwen: I read about your troubles in the paper, and I just– I just wanted to come here and say sorry to you and xander.

Sarah: Oh, my troubles? You mean the sheer hell that you have put me through, the horror show that will not end?

Gwen: I am so sorry. When I switched those vials, I…had no idea that that drug would push you to such extremes. I mean, I certainly didn’t dream that you’d kill abigail.

Xander: She didn’T.

Gwen: I didn’t–I’m sor– oh, god, I’m sorry, I, um… that just came out wrong. I’m just really upset.

[Sniffles] Look, I meant I’m sorry for what I did… and I know that I have no right to ask you this, but… could you ever forgive me?

[Suspenseful music]

Did you hear what I said, bitch? If I can’t have xander, no one can.

Sarah: No.

Gwen: I’d rather him dead than with anyone else.

Sarah: I won’t let you hurt him. I will kill you first. After trying lots of things to manage her

Xander: What are you doing?!

Sarah: I had to stop her. She was gonna kill you.

Gwen: What?

Sarah: She has a gun, xander. You have to call the police.

Xander: It’s all right, sarah. Calm down. Everyone’s safe.

Sarah: No, you need to make them take her back to prison. She pointed a gun at you. She was gonna shoot.

Xander: Darling, you’re mistaken–there was no gun.

Sarah: No, she pulled it out of her purse, and she obviously put it back in there–show him! Show him what you reached for.

Gwen: D-do you mean this?

Jake: So what? You changed your mind? You don’t want to get engaged anymore?

Ava: No, I do. Just not with that ring.

Jake: Why? You don’t like it?

Ava: It’s beautiful. But I happen to know that’s the engagement ring that xander gave to gwen.

Jake: You’re kidding.

Ava: Nope. I recognize it. And now that gwen is out free, she could recognize it on me.

Jake: So what?

Ava: So what? I sent her to prison. Remember?

Jake: Yeah, and you apologized for it.

Ava: Yeah. She’s gonna be ticked off all over again. Besides, it could be a bad omen.

Jake: You believe in that crap?

Ava: Yeah. What, you don’t?

[Jake huffs] Look, I associate that ring with a wedding that ended up in disaster. I don’t wanna think about that every time I look at my hand.

Jake: All right. All right. Well, I don’t want that either. So…let’s go back to the jewelry store together. All right? And pick you out something that makes you happy. Huh?

Ava: All right.

[Overlapping low chatter]

Nicole: Rafe, stop. Eric was just helping me. I was almost robbed.

Rafe: What?

Nicole: Some maniac pulled a gun on me and pushed me to the ground, and if eric hadn’t come along when he did, I might have been shot.

Rafe: Oh, my god. Are you all right?

Nicole: I’M…I’m just a little shaken up.

Rafe: When did this happen?

Eric: A few minutes ago. He ran off that way.

Nicole: You gotta catch that son of a bitch.

Rafe: I’m gonna call it in right now.


Kristen: If you’re wondering what I’m doing–

Both: We’re not.

Kristen: I’m writing chloe up for inappropriate behavior.

[Brady sighs]

Brady: Kristen, you want to write someone up, why don’t you write me up?

Kristen: ‘Cause she forcibly kissed you.

Brady: Hmm.

Kristen: That makes you a victim. And sadly, we have seen this inappropriate behavior before. Some poor pathetic employee thinks that they can get ahead by sleeping with the boss.

Brady: You know what? That’s enough, kristen.

Kristen: It’s gonna be so easy to build a case against her! Hmm? See, I witnessed the whole thing. And as you well know, basic black has zero tolerance for sexual harassment. Which means you’ll have no choice but to fire her. I’m gonna go down and have someone type this up.

Brady: Ignore her.

Chloe: Even if I do, you know that she’s not gonna quit. It’s only gonna get worse. Ugh! Maybe I should just resign.

From prom dresses

Xander: See, sweetheart. It’s only a handkerchief.

Sarah: But I s– I saw a gun. Oh, my god.

Xander: Are you all right?

Gwen: I’m fine.

Xander: I should go check on her.

Gwen: Mm-hmm. Yeah, of course. I’ll go. Um… don’t worry. I won’t phone the police. I don’t want sarah getting into trouble.

Xander: Yeah, I appreciate that.

Gwen: But, you know, xander, I am quite worried. I know you don’t think that sarah killed abigail. But after what just happened, you have to admit it’S… at least possible. I mean, what… what if she does it again? What if she comes after you?

Xander: You should go.

Gwen: Yeah. Just promise… promise me that you’ll be careful.

Rafe: And remind all officers that he is armed, and they need to approach with extreme caution. Thanks.

[Beep] I’m sorry, man. I, uh, I was a real jerk.

Eric: Don’t worry about it.

Rafe: Sure you’re okay?

Nicole: Yeah. I’m just–I’m ready to go.

Rafe: All right. Okay.

Nicole: Oh–ah–

Rafe: All right. Sit down.

[Nicole groaning] Let me take a look. This one?

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

Rafe: That hurt? No? How about that?

Nicole: No, not really.

Rafe: No? Alrighty. Well, let’s try it one more time. Okay? Come on.

Nicole: Aah!

Rafe: Still hurt?

Nicole: Yeah.

Rafe: No? All right. All right, sit. Okay.

Brady: No, I’m not gonna let you quit, and I will not let her ruin it.

Chloe: I can get another job.

Brady: Of course. Chloe, of course you can. You can get another job like that, but… but [Sighs] It means a lot to me that you are here. You know, my father started this company. And you, nicole, and I have made it the success it is today. We’re building something here, something great. And we’ll not let her ruin it.

Chloe: Okay. So what’s the plan?

Brady: You stay here. I’m gonna try to fix the situation.

[Ava laughs]

Ava: Okay. You’re right. The ring you picked for me, it was the most beautiful one they had. Nothing else compared.

Jake: Yeah?

Ava: Yeah.

Jake: Ava, seriously, you don’t have to keep it just to make me happy. If you don’t like it, we can go someplace else–there are plenty of other jewelry stores.

Ava: No. No, that’s the one. I mean, really, what difference does it make that it used to belong to someone else? It’s mine now, and I love it.

Jake: You sure?

Ava: Yeah, absolutely. Look. It’s gorgeous, and it fit perfectly. We don’t even need to get it sized or anything.

Jake: No, they gave us a great deal. I mean, I can’t believe he wanted us to have it so badly he threw in in the wedding bands for free. It’s gotta be a good omen, right?

Ava: Listen, if gwen gives me any trouble, I’ll deal with her. Right now… I wanna enjoy being engaged.

Jake: Oh, yeah? Then how about I put this ring on your finger?

Ava: Oh, yes, please.

[Both chuckling]

Jake: All right then. Ava vitali, will you marry me…eventually?

[Both chuckling]

Ava: Yes, jake dimera. Eventually, I will.

Jake: Oh, my god. Ha.

Ava: We just did this.

Jake: We did.

Greg: That’s a nice rock. Hand it over.

[Tense music]

Moderate to severe eczema still disrupts my skin.

Nicole: Guys, I-I’m telling you, I’m fine.

Rafe: Nicole, you can’t walk. I need to take you to the hospital.

Eric: I agree.

Nicole: Fine. Fine.

Rafe: Okay, good. I’ll drive you over.

Nicole: No, rafe, you need to find the guy who did this to me before he attacks anyone else.

Eric: Hey, you know what? I can take her.

Ava: Okay. Okay. Relax. You can have it.

Jake: No. No, he can’T.

Ava: What are you doing?

Jake: You’re not giving him your ring. Look, pal, we just got engaged. Put the gun down. You don’t know who you’re messing with, do you?


Brady: Kristen? Kristen, really?

Gabi: I-I’m sorry. Did we have an appointment?

Brady: Gabi, listen. You can’t do this. You can’t dump her at basic black.

Gabi: I had no choice!

Brady: I know she threatened to vote you out, okay? But you’ve gotta stand up to her. Look, she’s a bully. She’s a tyrant. You can’t put up with this.

Gabi: And she’s your boss. Okay? She’s your boss. And whether you like her or not, you have to make it work. All right?

Kristen: Where’s brady?

Chloe: He stepped out.

Kristen: I sent my report to hr. And it’s only a matter of time before I get you out of this company, out of brady’s bed, and out of his life.

Chloe: Okay, go ahead, kristen. ‘Cause you know what? I can give as good as I get.

Kristen: So…declaring war, are we?

Chloe: Hell yeah. And I don’t plan on losing.

Xander: I was just coming to check on you.

Gwen: And I was just leaving.

Sarah: Um…[Sniffles] Gwen, I’m sorry.

Gwen: No, that’s all right. I…I understand. You’ve been through so much lately. Most of which is my fault. Take care.

Xander: You’re right. I shouldn’t have let her in. I’m so sorry. I feel terrible that she upset you so much.

Sarah: Why won’t it stop? I just want it to stop.

Xander: It’s gonna be okay. I promise you. Everything’s gonna be all right, sarah.

Sonny: Hey, uncle vic, we gotta talk.

Alex: I am not uncle vic.
