Tony: Said Simple Simon to the pieman, let me taste your ware.
Tony: “Simple Simon met a pieman going to the fair”?
Allie: I’m sorry, do you need help?
Tony: No, no, I’m sorry. No, it’s just a silly old nursery rhyme.
Tony: You know, they used to use it to amuse the young folk in my day, but that was long before your “tic-tacs.”
Allie: You mean tiktok?
Tony: Mmm. I’m almost tempted to recite “hickory dickory dock,” but I’ll spare you. So, where is your partner in this patisserie?
Allie: It’s just me today. I’m actually trying to answer the age-old question, cherry or peach pie? I’m taking kind of a census. And chanel is taking a personal day, she actually has a very important choice to make of her own.
Tony: More important than pie? Oh, that’s hard to believe.
Allie: I know. Believe it. I don’t know about simple simon, but I’m hoping that simon says she makes the right choice.
Johnny: Forget about simon, johnny says she’s gonna choose me.
Chanel: Why is this so hard? Giovanni or horton? Horton or giovanni?
Paulina: In my experience, when a girl is talking into her coffee, it’s usually a boy that she’s brewing over.
Chanel: A boy and a girl.
Paulina: Oh. You still haven’t made a choice between allie and johnny?
Chanel: I told them I would come up with a decision by today. But I don’t know what to do, mama.
Paulina: Oh, well, baby, mama’s here. And she’s on the case.
Chad: Rafe. I just read “the intruder–” “the intruder!” And found out that sarah horton was brought in for questioning. Apparently, she was at the mansion the night abby was murdered. Yeah, if you wouldn’t mind giving me a call back please at your earliest convenience, I would really like to know what the hell is going on and why my wife’s murderer isn’t behind bars yet. Thank you!
Ej: You see, I’m wondering if you’re planning on joining your wife’s murderer in lockup. I need an answer, chad. Are you giving me your shares or am I sending you to prison?
Ava: He didn’t make it? Jake is–he’s dead?
Kayla: I’m sorry.
Ava: Are you sure?
Ava: No, you’re wrong. You’re wrong. This is just like tripp. It’s just like tripp. You said that he was gone and he wasn’t, so you’re wrong.
Kayla: No, tripp– it’s a miracle he’s alive, but that is not the case with jake. I’m sorry. He’s gone.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Gabi: Oh, to what do I owe this displeasure?
Kate: Well, I think we both reached the point in our relationship where we accept the fact that we don’t owe each other anything, do we?
Gabi: Yeah, I agree on that, thank you for stopping by.
Kate: Why I stopped by is to warn you that you have a target on your back because ej is gunning for your job.
Gabi: Well, that’s nothing new.
Kate: Oh no, what’s changed it is the fact that he now has the ammunition to do it because I’ve signed all of my shares over to him and I believe chad’s gonna do the same thing.
Chad: Your latest power play hasn’t been one of my biggest concerns, in case you forgot my wife was murdered. And now it turns out that sarah horton might’ve had something to do with it. Or at least know who did.
Ej: Hmm. I have accorded you a significant amount of sympathy for your loss, but I’m afraid your bereavement leave is over.
Chad: How dare you?
Ej: How dare I? You sent me to prison. You and kate, for a crime I did not commit. Your latest power play caused quite the concern. Or have you forgotten? Well, chad, it’s time to pay the piper. I’ll accept two forms of repayment for your treachery as discussed. So ask yourself, are you going to continue grieving here in this house? Or locked up for your crimes? Moderate to severe eczema still disrupts my skin.
Tony: So, chanel has to make a choice and you’ve put her on the clock.
Allie: May the best twin win.
Johnny: Oh, he will. And I’m sure my uncle tony is rooting for me, right? Dimeras all the way.
Tony: Oh, please consider me switzerland in this morass. Anna and I are very fond of chanel. And as my wife would be the first to point out, it’s chanel’s choice and her choice alone. So what do I say? I wish you both the best of luck.
Allie: Wait. You didn’t answer which pie you prefer. Cherry–
Johnny: Or peach?
Tony: Ah, I think I’m gonna go inside and get some tea cakes.
Paulina: Well, baby, I’m glad that you finally realized you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
Chanel: I know, I have to choose one. But the problem is I love them both.
Paulina: Well… you have to ask yourself now what do you prefer? Penis or vagina?
Paulina: What? We’re two grown-ass women. I had the talk with you years ago. There’s no need to be embarrassed about what god gave us.
Chanel: I’m not embarrassed, it’s just it’s not about that for me. Do you love abe because of his–
Paulina: That’s one reason.
Chanel: Why did I even ask that?
Paulina: Sex is very important in a healthy relationship.
Chanel: Probably not the most healthy thing to discuss with your mother. Fine. Sex isn’t a problem, with either of them.
Paulina: Okay, so what? You’re 50/50 across the board? 51/49? Either way?
Chanel: It’s not something I can put a number on. To me, it is about the individual person, not their equipment.
Paulina: Hmm. I see. Um. Oh– whenever I have to make a business decision, I break it down into pros and cons, okay? So let’s do that with your twins. Then, maybe… the choice will become clear.
Ej: Kate has already made her choice. She’s surrendered her shares to me, and as far as I’m concerned, you’d do best to do the same.
Chad: You know what? You can have the shares, all right? And since you’re in such a hurry to consolidate power to feed your bruised little ego, I’ll go upstairs and I’ll get you the certificates right now.
Ej: Good. And while you’re at it, why don’t you start packing your belongings? Because I want you out of this house.
Kayla: Take all the time you need.
After trying lots of things to manage her
Chanel: Okay, let’s not do cons, I wanna keep this positive.
Paulina: Sounds like the right attitude to me. So who do you wanna start with?
Chanel: Mmm, let’s start with giovanni. But don’t read anything into it. It’s just my relationship with gio is a lot less complicated, that’s all. So it’ll just be easier to do him first.
Paulina: Okay, okay.
Paulina: Giovanni it is. So what do you find appealing about johnny dimera? What makes you two compatible?
Chanel: Well, he’s funny. Very funny. He can make me laugh even when I feel like crying.
Paulina: Mm-hmm, a sense of humor. That’s good.
Chanel: And he’s so handsome. Great smile.
Paulina: Also a plus.
Chanel: He’s very smart.
Paulina: And rich!
Chanel: Mama! Whose list is this?
Paulina: I’m just saying. All right, all right. Please, proceed.
Chanel: Well, like some people I know, giovanni is persistent. He doesn’t give up on anything or anybody. He takes chances, you know? Like when we were in naples, we found ourselves in this little karaoke bar and johnny told me he wanted to sing “mona lisa” for me.
Paulina: Nat king cole, huh? Oh, the boy knows his music.
Chanel: He does. So he hops up on the stage, grabs the mic, and he turns to the prompter as the song starts but the words weren’t in english. Now, now, johnny, he speaks a little italian but not serenading his love in front of an audience italian.
Paulina: Well, well, what, what? What did he do?
Chanel: Now, this wasn’t some touristy place full of americans, no, it was full of locals ready to hate him. Now, johnny could’ve grabbed me and we could’ve run out of there, but he didn’T. He didn’t hesitate for a second. He belted out that love song in his best broken italian. He did it at full volume and with his whole heart. And he won over the crowd. And me. And he wanted to show how he felt, and he was fearless.
Paulina: Mmm. Fearless. Romantic. Speaks italian. Loves nat king cole. Loves my very special and beautiful daughter. This young man sounds like a keeper to me, chanel.
Chanel: Yeah. He does.
Johnny: Look what I did. It seems everyone prefers my peach pie samples to your cherry samples. Why am I not surprised?
Allie: Why am I not surprised that you’re getting all up in people’s faces and forcing your peach samples on them? They just wanted you to go away.
Johnny: What? They were licking their lips begging for more.
Allie: Also, why am I not surprised to see a man taking credit for the work of a woman? Now, remind me, did you bake that pie? Or did I? Oh, that’s right, I baked them both. And I don’t need to go around telling everybody how great my pie is. I can just sit back, let them come to me, and then I’m gonna give them the time and space to make up their own minds. And they’ll come to the realization that the only choice is cherry.
Steve: Hey, kids. What’s good today?
Chad: You think I’m gonna move out of this house? You can’t be serious.
Ej: Do I look like I’m joking? And, frankly, you don’t deserve to live in this house that father built. While it was under your care and much to my horror, you allowed this house to fall into gabriella’s greedy hands. Had I not been around to get back the deed and title to this house, it may never have been restored to its rightful legacy.
Chad: What do you mean? I’ve been as much a part of that legacy as you are.
Ej: You’re a traitor to that legacy and this family. Which is why I’m banishing you.
Tony: Oh, these cookies, they’re absolutely delicious. And I thought I would– oh. Maybe not. I’ll come back later.
Chad: Wait, tony, wait. You should know that our brother here is trying to kick me out of the house.
Ej: Because our brother here is a duplicitous snake.
Gabi: So that given that ej will come after me, I mean, we have this whole roadrunner/coyote thing going, but I have proven time and time again that the best man to run this company is this woman right here. He’ll soon find the edge of the cliff behind him again and me waving as he plummets to his– well, you know.
Kate: Yeah. Well, it looks like you have it all figured out, don’t you?
Gabi: Actually, I do. I do. And I know that you unfortunately don’t have a job right now, which is fine, but I am gainfully employed and I am running a multi-national corporation, so best be going, okay?
[Phone rings] Busy, busy. Oh, rafe. Hey, listen, can I call you back because I’m dealing with a pest control problem– what? Yeah. I–I understand. Okay. Okay.
Kate: What did he say?
Gabi: Jake– jake– jake’s dead.
Jake: Okay. I thought getting shot in the gut was bad. The hell was that for?
Ava: You lied to me. Flo, you’re here.
Jake: When did I lie to you?
Ava: Every time you smiled at me like that and you gave that look.
Jake: What look?
Ava: That one! That one, the one that told me that we actually had a future together. The one that said you’d never leave. The one… that said you really loved me.
Jake: I do–
[Sighs] I did love you.
Ava: I told you. I told you I didn’t wanna get hurt again, and I told you that I didn’t wanna lose you. You knew about my past because I shared it with you. You knew about the guys that I loved and who left and then you convinced me, you convinced me that that was not you. And then you put a ring on my finger, jake. And I believed you. Because I’m stupid. I’m a sucker just like I always am because I believed that you were gonna stay and now you have left and I’m alone and it is your fault!
Kate: Jake is what?
Gabi: Rafe– oh, rafe says he was shot and they rushed him to the hospital but that he didn’t make it. Kate… he’s gone. Jake’s gone.
Ej: I’m sure it’s not news to you that chad was willing to let me rot in statesville for a crime I did not commit.
Tony: Listen. I understand that miscarriage of justice and you have every right to be upset about being wronged. But I truly believe this is not the time to be seeking retribution. This man, he just lost his wife.
Ej: So did I.
Chad: You are not seriously comparing the two. My wife was stabbed to death, ej, murdered in this house. I found her upstairs. You–your wife walked out on you! Again! All you have to do is wait. I’m sure sami’s crazy ass is gonna come walking through that door–
Ej: You watch your mouth! You are in no position to be throwing stones about crazy wives.
Chad: Shut your mouth.
Ej: I did not take abigail away from you, damn it! What happened was awful. Tragic. But it had nothing to do with me. What happened to me on the other hand, had everything to do with you!
Chanel: This is too much. I need to take a break. It’s just no matter what I choose, I have to hurt someone that I really care about. And I might break apart a life-long friendship. They’re twins, mama! I can’t–I can’t take that away from them.
Paulina: Baby, the heart wants what the heart wants. Whatever choice you make, whoever gets hurt, they will recover, my darling. Johnny and allie are both young and resourceful. Stop worrying about them. Take care of you.
Chanel: Right. I’ll try.
Paulina: You know what? You know, I can see how much you’re struggling with this so, baby, let’s you know what I say? Let’s put this on hold for now.
Chanel: No, no, no. I owe it to them. I need to finish this. I’ve kept them in limbo for too long.
Paulina: Okay, okay. So then moving right along. So… what do you love about allie?
Chanel: I love that to me she’s horton and to her I’m dupree. We have this rich past of friendship and we’re best friends, truly. And we’ve known each other for what feels like forever. But we still find ways to surprise each other. I love her laugh and her smile. And I even love her sadness.
Paulina: You love her sadness?
Chanel: Johnny takes everything in stride, but allie, she feels it all. She feels the world’s joy and its pain.
Chanel: The other day, allie and I, we went for a walk in the square and we saw this little girl who’d skinned her knee and I looked over to allie and she was looking at the little girl and the look on their faces, it was the same.
Paulina: She’s an empath.
Chanel: Right. Right. It was like she really felt that little girl’s pain, really felt it. Like I could tell, I could tell. And it was like she wanted to take some of it for herself so that the little girl could feel better faster. And of course she went running right over to her to comfort her.
Paulina: Mmm. It’s like I’ve always said, it’s good to find the helpers and keep them close.
Chanel: And then on that same walk, we saw this old man who had lost his wallet and allie helped him look all over for it. And when he finally found it, he was so relieved, so happy. And I looked at allie and she, she was just as happy as he was. It’s like she’s so connected to this world and everyone in it. How could I not wanna be connected to her?
Paulina: Yeah. I get it, I get it. And I can see why you’re struggling. I hear it in your voice how much you love them both so much. They are very lucky to have you in their lives. Somebody who appreciates them the way you do.
Chanel: Yeah, yeah, but now I have to choose just one.
Johnny: Well, this one is richer.
Allie: But this one is sweeter.
Johnny: A little too sweet if you ask me, almost sickeningly sweet.
Allie: Well, this one is really just empty calories.
Johnny: Well, this oneis a little tart.
Allie: Excuse me?
Johnny: You heard me.
Steve: Um, I’m not sure what’s going on here, but I’m gonna skip the pies. I’m going inside to see if I can find myself some cookies.
Allie: I just wanna make sure that I didn’t imagine you calling me a little tart?
Johnny: Hey, sis, if the pie fits.
Allie: Okay, well, you know what? When chanel finally makes her decision, I’m not gonna be the one with pie all over my face.
Johnny: What? Oh!
When moderate to severe
ulcerative colitis persists…
Johnny: You know what? You’re right, the cherry– the cherry is delicious. It’s the perfect amount of sweet and tart.
Allie: Yes. See? I told you. And chanel knows, too. See, she won’t be able to resist my pie.
Johnny: Oh, but you haven’t tried mine yet.
Allie: You wouldn’T.
Johnny: No. I wouldn’T. Or would I?
Paulina: Honey, oh, I’m sorry, I don’t think we’re even close to an answer.
Chanel: Thank you for trying, mama.
Paulina: Oh, baby. Well, I don’t know who you should choose or who you’re going to choose, but I do one thing, whoever that boy or girl turns out to be, they will be the luckiest person on the planet. Because there just isn’t enough paper in the whole wide world to write down all there is to love about you. Oh. [Laughs] Mm.
Jake: I didn’t mean for this to happen.
Ava: Yeah, but you couldn’t let it go. You had to be the tough guy, just like you were back in philly. Right? You couldn’t stand the idea of some other hard case getting the better of jake dimera.
Jake: No, it wasn’t about the ring. Okay? The ring could be replaced. It was about that moment you and I just shared, right before. Right? I wasn’t gonna let anybody take that away from us.
Ava: Jake, life isn’t about one moment, it is about all of them. And, yeah, we could’ve replaced the ring. But I can’t replace you. Now all I got is this stupid ring. And that memory, that one memory of right before you died. I would give anything, especially this ring, to have you back.
Jake: But I got such a good deal on it.
Ava: It’s not funny.
Jake: Come on. Guy threw in the wedding bands for free, remember? I still got ’em in my pocket. Huh?
Ava: All right, okay, well, I guess in that case it turned out all right. Jake, what am I gonna do now?
Jake: Well… you’re gonna mourn me for a respectable amount of time. And then, come on, you’re ava vitali. You’re a survivor. You’re thee survivor, right? You’ll figure it out because you always do. And then you’re gonna be okay. Come here. Hey, come here. All right.
Jake: I’m sorry I’m gone. But you gotta remember one thing. I didn’t leave you. Okay? I didn’t leave you. I’m not like the others. And what we had was really special. Didn’t last very long, but… it was special. And you’re gonna carry that with you for the rest of your life. Okay?
Ava: I will. I will.
Gabi: Just left this horrible voicemail this morning screaming at him for not showing up to work. I was so stupid.
Kate: No, there’s no way that you could’ve known, gabi. Look, I’m so– I’m sorry for your loss, I am. I mean, I know that you moved on but he meant a lot to you.
Gabi: Yeah and to you too.
Ej: I did not kill abigail, but frankly I’m shocked I haven’t been framed for that. But you– I lost samantha because of you. Because of your shameful disloyalty to me and this family. Your–your malicious lies.
Chad: I’ll own my part in coming between you and sami. But you–you slept with her sister all on your own.
Ej: Belle and I are through.
Chad: My condolences. Now you have more free time to roam the dark halls of this mausoleum blaming me for all your problems.
Ej: Which is now none of your concern since you’re moving out.
Tony: Ej! This is our family abode. Think about the children, thomas and charlotte! This is the only home they’ve ever known!
Ej: My niece and nephew are welcome to stay.
Chad: You think I’m gonna leave my children here with you? Never. They’re coming with me. It’s clear there’s not enough room in this mansion for anything other than your bruised ego and self-pitying paranoia.
Ej: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out! And don’t forget to bring me those certificates for your shares! Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.
Allie: [Laughs] Oh. You really think chanel is going to choose an immature little child like you?
Johnny: You started it!
Allie: Did not!
Johnny: Did too.
Allie: Oh, you are ridiculous!
Johnny: You know what? Let me she who is without sin cast the first pie.
Allie: You called me a nasty name so, yeah, I threw a pie at you.
Johnny: I called you a little tart.
Johnny: Which is a term, a term of endearment.
Allie: Yeah, so is this.
Johnny: Wait. Truce. I am going to slowly reach my hand into my pocket. Just put the pie down. Put the pie down. And no phone will get hurt. It’s chanel. She wants to see us.
Allie: She’s ready to choose.
Kate: Well, don’t leave me in suspense, it’s not every day that I make a romantic proclamation in the town square. And I am definitely not used to waiting for an answer.
Jake: You wanna know if there’s still an us? After last night? Does that answer your question?
Paulina: Why are you here drinking all alone? Where’s that handsome boyfriend of yours? I was talking about roman brady. Unless you have some other handsome devil in mind?
Kate: Roman and I broke up.
Paulina: Oh, well, I’m sorry, I’m sorry to hear that. So you’re drowning your sorrows?
Kate: Actually, I just found out that someone I was pretty close to has passed away.
Gabi: What did you do to him?
Ava: Excuse me?
Gabi: You. You pulled him back into your mob nonsense, didn’t you?
Ava: You have no idea what you are talking about. We were mugged. Somebody tried to steal my ring.
Gabi: You two were engaged?
Ava: Yeah, jake and I were. We were engaged.
Gabi: I’m sorry, I– he and I–our breakup was bad, really, really bad. But he still always had my back, even voted his dimera shares so that ej and chad wouldn’t kick me to the curb.
Tony: I can see how much you’re hurting, brother.
Ej: You still have your sight then?
[Sighs] Sorry. I’m not myself. Or maybe I am. Not enough liquor in the world, right?
Tony: Chad’s in pain, too. You know, father used to lash out like this when he was hurting.
Ej: That he did.
Tony: But he put family first, no matter our differences and no matter how badly we hurt each other.
Ej: Chad. I don’t want you to go.
Chad: You know, I haven’t spent a single night in our room since abby died? I’ve been sleeping in the guest room. A guest, in my own home. But it doesn’t feel like that now. This isn’t my home anymore. Not without her. I’ll have harold pack up the rest of my things.
Chanel: So I’ve decided which one of you I wanna be with.
Paulina: I’m sorry about your loss. Even the ones who break our hearts, they still keep a place there.
Kate: You got that right.
Paulina: To jake.
Kate: To jake.
Kayla: There was nothing we could do, steve.
Steve: Poor ava.
Ava: What is your problem?
Ava: Jake’s body isn’t even cold and you’re talking about voting shares?
Gabi: Ej is coming after me. He wants my job. And, you know, some of us still work for a living.
Ava: Yeah, and some of us aren’t living at all. And all you can do is think about what jake’s death is gonna cost you.
Gabi: This is not personal. This is business. If ej gets his hands on jake’s dimera shares, then I’ve got nothing that– there’s nothing– there’s no way I can stop it. Or maybe there is. Ej wouldn’t get jake’s shares if they went to jake’s widow.
