Allie: [Yawns] Oh, the stars must be aligned. The first morning we have someone else open the bakery, and henry, bless his soul, sleeps in. I’m a lucky, lucky woman.
Chanel: Yes, hiring some extra help for the morning shift at the bakery was definitely a brilliant idea. Whose idea was that, by the way?
Allie: You know, I think it was yours, dupree.
Chanel: I think you’re right. Hm, someone is blowing up my phone, yours too.
Allie: Is there a problem at the bakery?
Chanel: Not unless alex is moonlighting at the shop.
Allie: Oh, god, alex as in, “let’s all get together and feel all right” alex?
Chanel: They’re all from him.
Allie: Yeah, wow. And they all say the same thing. He wants to take us out for drinks. God, he is like a dog with a bone.
Stephanie: What the hell, dude? Watch where you’re going!
Sonny: Someday, you’re gonna meet some woman who knocks you off your feet, and you’re gonna fall just as hard and fast as the rest of us.
Alex: She walks in beauty as the night.
Stephanie: What the hell are you grinning at?
Alex: You, obviously.
Sonny: You saw stephanie at the hospital?
Chad: Yeah, she was supposed to meet her mom for lunch.
Sonny: I didn’t even know she was in town.
Chad: Yeah, I guess she’s landed some big client here in salem. You know, she started her own firm, sjpr.
Sonny: Yeah, no, no, I heard she’s doing great. Heck, maybe I get my business sense from my mom’s side of the family. Don’t tell uncle vic I said that.
Chad: Yeah, your secret’s safe with me, yeah.
Sonny: Yeah, but actually, now that you mention it, I mean, I have been looking to–a new pr firm. I mean, with all the recent upheaval, which is, like, the pr way of saying disaster after disaster, you know, titan could use some rebranding. Which is the pr way of saying we all look like a bunch of idiots.
Chad: Well, I’m sure stephanie would be up for the challenge. I actually have her card.
Eric: Look who it is. Happy birthday, dad.
Roman: Hey, keep that to yourself, all right? I don’t want everybody making a big deal of it.
Eric: That’s out of your hands; you’re a brady. You’re gonna have third-cousins call wishing you a long life and a wet mouth.
Roman: Yeah, ma’s cousin, sister agnes claire, called from wexford, 3:00 in the morning. I know she knows there’s a time difference. But since it’s not a papal decree, she was not about to bend her knee to it.
Eric: Did you hear from sami?
Roman: Yeah, about an hour ago.
Eric: Yeah, how’s she doing?
Roman: Well, according to her, she is grand, she is fine.
Eric: Nobody does denial like sami does.
Roman: I was gonna scramble some eggs; want some?
Eric: Oh, no, I’m fine. Water would be great.
Roman: Okay. Did you take a run? Looks like you worked up a little sweat there.
Nicole: Detective hunter.
Jada: Please, call me jada.
Nicole: Right, I’m sorry, I thought this was eric’s room.
Jada: Actually, it is.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Chanel: So shall I text alex and tell him we’re on?
Allie: You want to go out for drinks with him?
Chanel: Yeah, why not? You had a good time the other night, right?
Allie: I did.
Chanel: Okay, and now we have someone to open up the bakery for us, so I think it’s time that we get back to having some sort of a social life.
Allie: I agree.
Chanel: Okay, so I’ll text him right now, and I’ll ask him where he wants to meet.
Allie: Okay, so before you do that, do you want to hear the end of the sentences that you cut off?
Chanel: I’m supposed to say yes, aren’t I?
Allie: Yeah, that’s right.
Chanel: Okay then, by all means, finish your thought.
Allie: Okay. So yes, I did say I agree that we should get out more. But what I didn’t get the chance to say is I don’t think that should necessarily include alex kiriakis.
Chanel: But you said you had fun the other night. And then I cut you off.
Allie: Yeah, I did have fun. Until he brought up a threesome. And I just–I don’t think that us saying no is going to stop him from asking again.
Chanel: Yeah, you’re right. But would that be such a bad idea?
Stephanie: You’re grinning, idiotically, I might add, at me?
Alex: Sue me. I smile when I see perfection, and you are perfect. You know that, right? Would you like to go out tonight?
Stephanie: Right, so barreling into someone like a right tackle, and then sprawling to the ground like a klutz is just your prelude to a cheesy pickup.
Alex: Is that a yes?
Stephanie: No, that’s a no. No, no.
Alex: Well, would you think about it?
Stephanie: Brother, you are one for the books.
Alex: Wait–don’t go.
Stephanie: I have to go. I want to drink coffee, but the coffee I was going to drink is on the ground.
Alex: Well, that’s because of me. So the least I can do is replace it.
Stephanie: Well, it did cost me six bucks.
Alex: So then, maybe you can tell me what it was, and I’ll go get it, please.
Stephanie: Hot mocha latte with oat milk and two fake sugars.
Alex: I knew you had exquisite taste. Don’t go.
Stephanie: He’s totally gonna screw that up.
Sonny: Thank you for this.
Chad: Yeah, glad I had it. Hopefully, she can give you a family discount.
Sonny: Let’s hope so.
Chad: Well, I gotta–I’m gonna head to the courthouse.
Chad: Yeah, man. I want to make sure leo and gwen pay for what they did to abby.
Sonny: Okay, just don’t forget to reschedule with marlena.
Chad: I won’T. Good luck with stephanie.
Sonny: Hey. Look, I know you’re going through a lot right now, you know, with abigail and everything, and I just feel like I’m talking about myself a lot, and I feel like I kind of let you down–I just–
Chad: You talking about your life and your business is not letting me down, all right, and honestly, I should probably be thinking about something else, anything else, and it helps. All right, I don’t want my best friend feeling guilty. And that’s what you are, my best friend, okay? And you are very good at it.
Sonny: All right, get out of here.
Sonny: Hey, don’t forget.
Roman: Wait a minute, you couldn’t have gone for a run. You just came from upstairs.
Eric: Right, yeah, jada. Her a/c unit is not working, so I said I’d try to fix it. You wouldn’t happen to know where the toolbox went, would you?
Roman: Oh, yeah, as a matter of fact, I had it right down here. Any other units broken?
Roman: Any other units broken? Well, you know, I’m just saying, the a/c in my room is fine, and it’s nice and cool down here in the pub.
Roman: Is your a/c not working either?
Eric: No, mine’s fine.
Roman: Okay, then, why are you so flushed and sweaty?
Jada: Eric should be back shortly, if you want to wait. He’s fixing my a/c, so he said I could use his shower in the meantime.
Nicole: Oh, you’re hear using eric’s shower?
Jada: Is there something funny about that?
Nicole: No, no, no. It’s just that, you know, I see you here standing in his room, wrapped in that towel, and I–you know, I just assumed that you two slept together.
Jada: Actually, we did.
It’s the most wonderful
time of the year
Allie: Are you saying that you want to have a threesome with alex? I thought you weren’t interested.
Chanel: No, I’m not. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the attention. I mean, come on, horton. Didn’t it feel good to have alex practically begging to sleep with us?
Allie: It’s like a conditioned response with him, like, pavlov’s dog.
Chanel: I didn’t say it was emotionally fulfilling. It was flattering. And he is a very hot guy. And he is interested in us. And he is right about one thing. You are really irresistible.
Allie: Okay, just as long as you know that going out with alex doesn’t mean going home with alex.
Chanel: Trust me, I am only interested in a twosome with you.
Alex: [Clears throat]
Alex: You’re welcome.
Stephanie: Hmm. You got it right. You actually listened to what I said.
Alex: No, I mean, I listened, but really I was just thinking about the color of your eyes and how beautiful they are. So it didn’t really store in the hard drive. I just ended up asking the barista what the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my life just ordered, and there you have it.
Stephanie: Did you come on to her too?
Alex: You know, I don’t even know if that was a “her” barista, to be honest with you. I didn’t even notice.
Stephanie: Yeah, right.
Alex: I’m serious. I was just looking forward to getting back to you. What?
Stephanie: I just– I have never encountered anything quite like this.
Alex: Good. So you’ve never had anybody fall for you this hard before.
Stephanie: Oh, my god. How shallow are you to fall for me without knowing a damn thing about me?
Alex: Well, you obviously haven’t read “blink,” huh? Malcolm gladwell, no?
Stephanie: No, haven’t read it.
Alex: Well, let me explain to you. Gladwell argues that we have the capacity as people to sift huge amounts of information, and isolate telling details, and come to astonishingly rapid conclusions all within the first two seconds that we see something. Or meet someone. It’s what we call the mental process of intuition.
Stephanie: Mm, fascinating.
Stephanie: Well, my intuition tells me that I am extremely weirded out by all this intensity coming from a total stranger, so bye.
Alex: Really, so I’m not even gonna get to introduce myself? Allow me, I’m alex. And usually in our culture, it’s customary to then tell somebody your name when they told you theirs.
Stephanie: In my culture, it’s customary to say sorry when you slam into someone.
Alex: Well, I didn’t say i was sorry because I was–
Stephanie: Oh, you never do, right?
Stephanie: You really should be judicious about using the word dumb.
Alex: I mean, come on, you can least tell me your name, right? What is the harm in that?
Stephanie: Okay. It’s stephanie.
Alex: Stephanie? Well, that is a beautiful name. And now that we’re on a first-name basis, tonight, i know this incredible, incredible french spot in chicago.
Stephanie: Oh, my god, okay. Okay, remember when I said no a whole lot of times? And in spite of your rambling on about malcolm gladwell, and intuition, and whatever the hell else was your takeaway from that book, I told you that I was extremely weirded out by all of this insane intensity coming from someone who I don’t know, who doesn’t know me.
Alex: Okay, hey, I get it. I came on too strong, so allow me to apologize over a nice bottle of wine.
Stephanie: Oh, my god, alex.
Stephanie: Okay, I’m gonna be really blunt here, so maybe you’ll actually get it. I’m not interested. I am too busy to date someone that I’m attracted to, let alone you.
Alex: You’re too busy to date?
Stephanie: I run my own business. It takes up all of my time.
Alex: Oh, your own business. That’s incredible. Tell me about it.
[Cell phone rings]
Stephanie: Sorry. I have to take this. Hello?
Sonny: Hey. Stephanie, it’s sonny.
Stephanie: Oh, my god, how are you?
Sonny: I’m good, I’m good. Listen, chad just told me you’re in town, and i know you’re in pr. I think I might have a bit of a business proposition for you if you’re interested.
Stephanie: Oh, I might be. What is it?
Sonny: Well, how about I just tell you about it in person? You remember where the the office is, right? I mean, what time words for you?
Stephanie: Right now would work for me.
Sonny: Oh, okay, great. Well, I’ll see you soon.
Stephanie: I’ll be there soon. Sorry, this has been interesting, but duty calls.
Alex: So how about that dinner?
Stephanie: Maybe that barista’s free tonight.
Alex: She likes me. I think she really likes me.
Eric: Why am I so sweaty? It’s the middle of the summer.
Roman: Yeah. But you haven’t been outside.
Eric: I just came down here to get some tools. What’s up with the third degree?
Roman: Well, it’s just a question, that’s all, and yeah, if jada’s a/c is out, we definitely gotta get that fixed.
Eric: And I intend to do that.
Eric: Happy birthday, dad.
Roman: Thank you.
Jada: I don’t know why I just told you that.
Nicole: Neither do I. So you slept with eric, huh? That’s kind of fast, isn’t it?
Jada: Excuse me?
Nicole: You just got to town.
Jada: Actually, mrs. Hernandez, it’s been a couple weeks.
Nicole: Don’t you remember I asked you to call me nicole? And yes, I know it’s been a couple of weeks, but as far as I know, you and eric have only been out on one date? Unless, of course, I’m mistaken about that.
Jada: I’m sorry, nicole, but how is this any of your business?
When moderate to severe
ulcerative colitis persists…
Nicole: Well, I thought, since you volunteered the information that you slept with eric, you wouldn’t mind talking about it.
Jada: True. But correct me if I’m wrong. You and eric are now divorced, and you are married to my boss. So I’m not sure why you care.
Nicole: Yes, eric and i are divorced, but he is and always will be my friend. So I am concerned about his welfare.
Jada: His welfare? I can assure you I am not a threat to eric. But seems like I may be to you.
Nicole: Excuse me? What is that supposed to mean?
Jada: Okay, this is somewhat awkward. But are you sure the way you feel about eric isn’t stronger than friendship?
Eric: Hey, jada, I can fix your a/c–
Roman: What’s that?
Kate: Oh, that is known as a birthday present. Customary for someone on their birthday. Many happy returns of the day.
Roman: Well, thank you. And I’m sure whatever’s in there is very nice, but I would have preferred that you kept your word.
Kate: And what makes you think I didn’t?
Roman: Well, the fact you’re still out and about. You told me you were gonna turn yourself in.
Kate: Well, actually, I did. I went to the police station, and I told them, while I didn’t know that lucas was the kidnapper while sami was captive, not shortly after, i did, and I didn’t come forward.
Kate: And they have charged me as an accessory after the fact.
Allie: You know, I was thinking, maybe we need another shower.
[Knock at door] Or maybe we should get the door. Hi.
Abe: Hello. I hope this isn’t too early.
Paulina: Of course not. They’re bakers. Up with the birds.
Chanel: Not when we don’t have to, you know, bake.
Paulina: Oh, you were always miss grumps in the morning? God only knows why you decided to open a bakery. I used to have to drag you out of bed for lunch.
Chanel: Mama, why are you here?
Paulina: To tell you the wonderful news. You want to tell them? Should I?
Abe: Well, the fact is that–
Paulina: Abe’s gonna run for governor.
Abe: Well, I guess I won’t have to look for a spokesperson, will I?
Chanel: Congratulations, abe.
Paulina: Well, don’t congratulate him yet. We still have work to do. We want you two to be part of the campaign.
Chanel: Oh, well, mama, we have a bakery to run.
Paulina: Exactly, exactly. When I told our new pr consultant that my daughter and her lovely girlfriend run a bakery, she had the most wonderful, wonderful idea. Now, let me tell you, that woman, she’s already earning her money.
Chanel: What is the idea?
Paulina: Apparently, the way to reach the voters is through their stomachs. So you two, you’re going to make thousands of cookies that say “vote for abe.” That is, if you think you can handle, you know, the order.
Chanel: Oh no, we can definitely handle the order. But it depends on one thing.
Paulina: Yeah, and what is that?
Chanel: You need to apologize to allie first.
Sonny: Hey, come on in.
Stephanie: Whoa! Pretty nice digs you have here.
Sonny: Right, yeah, uncle vic likes things lavish, so– it’s so good to see you.
Stephanie: Right back at you.
Sonny: Yeah, chad told me you were in town, and i was so happy. He said you have some big new client out here in salem. I really hope I’m not pulling you away from anything.
Stephanie: No, no, not at all. In fact, you saved me.
Sonny: I saved you?
Stephanie: I just bumped into this guy in the square, literally, and he decided it was the perfect opportunity to try to pick me up. And you should have heard this guy’s lines. He was a total cheeseball.
Alex: Sonny boy, you are not gonna believe this. I met the… oh, my god, it’s you. Pool floaties are like whooping cough.
Stephanie: What the hell? Did you follow me?
Stephanie: This is stalking. Sonny, can you call your security and have him thrown out?
Alex: Stephanie, I work here. But the fact that you’re here, that’s kismet.
Stephanie: It’s not kismet. It’s a business meeting.
Alex: Ah, so that call in the square was from sonny.
Stephanie: You catch on fast.
Sonny: Stephanie. Let me guess, this is the cheeseball from the square.
Stephanie: Unfortunately, yes, you might want to start vetting your hires.
Sonny: Ah, can’t with this one because this is my brother.
Stephanie: Your brother?
Alex: His brother.
Stephanie: Alex kiriakis?
Alex: That’s right. And you’re stephanie–
Sonny: Johnson. Steve and kayla’s daughter.
Stephanie: Oh, my god, if he’s your brother, he’s my cousin too. Thank god I turned you down.
Alex: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Sonny here is my half-brother. His mother, adrienne, is your dad’s sister, and my mother is anjelica devereux, which means there isn’t a single impediment in our way.
Stephanie: Yes, there is. There is one colossal impediment–the fact that you are you.
Allie: Chanel. You really don’t need to apologize.
Chanel: Yes, she does. I told you about her teaming up with johnny to try to break us up. Because she wanted me to be with him. Emphasis on the him.
Allie: Chanel, really, it’s fine.
Chanel: No, it’s not. You were really upset about what she said, and rightfully so.
Paulina: Chanel is right, you know. I was wrong. And there’s no excuse for it. Except to say, I was just holding on to some old-fashioned idea of what I wanted for my daughter.
Allie: I understand.
Paulina: Now, let me tell you, when chanel found out what I was up to, oh, she took me to church on how out of line I was. And I’m glad. I’m glad she did because, you know, in the end, all that really matters to me is my baby’s happiness. And it’s plain to see how happy you make her.
Roman: Well, okay. I’m glad you accepted responsibly for what you did.
Kate: Yeah. Well, obviously, it was a rather novel experience for me.
Roman: Don’t joke. Couldn’t have been easy, especially under the circumstances. And I appreciate it.
Kate: Well, thank you.
Roman: But kidnapping is a felony. And if you have been charged as an accessory, that could be a prison sentence of up to three years.
Kate: I’m aware of that.
Roman: Does this mean you’re going to prison?
Eric: What are you doing here?
Nicole: Well, I came to see you, and jada answered the door.
Jada: I should probably get back to my room now.
Eric: I was just on my way to fix your a/C.
Jada: I should get dressed. And besides, it looks like you two have a lot to talk about. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease
Allie: Thank you for saying that, miss price.
Paulina: Oh, honey, we’re family. You call me paulina.
Allie: Okay, paulina.
Chanel: Thanks, mama. That was really big of you.
Paulina: So does this mean that you’ll take the cookie order?
Allie: Of course. We’d love to.
Chanel: Do you really need thousands?
Paulina: At least.
Abe: Maybe we should check the state’s campaign laws first. We don’t want to be accused of bribery.
Paulina: I’ll get my pr woman on it. What are you waiting for? You need to get over to that bakery, make sure that you have everything that you need ’cause when we hit that campaign trail, there’s no turning back.
Chanel: Okay, okay, but before we get started, don’t you want to, like, check out a sample so that you can make sure you like the taste, check out the font on the lettering?
Paulina: Honey, honey, honey, nobody has time for that. Come on, we need those cookies yesterday!
Chanel: All right, well, we’re on it.
Allie: Yeah. And we’re so happy to help you with your campaign, abe.
Abe: Thank you. I’m grateful to you.
Chanel: What have we gotten ourselves into?
Sonny: Stephanie owns her own pr firm, and I thought that titan could use a bit of rebranding.
Alex: I couldn’t agree more. And I know how busy you are, sonny, so I’ll run point on this one. I think stephanie and i will do an amazing job.
Sonny: No, mm-mm, okay, actually, we still have a few things, details, to work out. So how about I just call you when we’re finished, okay?
Alex: Fair enough, I’m gonna head down to the office now. Where the hell are my keys?
Sonny: Look, I’ll have maintenance let you in. Just please.
Alex: You know what, I must have dropped them when you and I bumped into each other.
Stephanie: When you ran into me.
Alex: I’ll be right back. It has been a very eventful morning.
Alex: She literally knocked me off my feet.
Sonny: So you have met alex now. Makes a big first impression, doesn’t he?
Kate: No, I am not going to prison.
Roman: So does this mean you’re on the lam?
Kate: No, it meant that I came forward voluntarily, so trask knocked the charges down to a misdemeanor, and I will be paying a fine.
Roman: That’s it?
Kate: And 200 hours of community service. You know, I mean, do you think I could waitress here for free, and that would count?
Roman: I doubt it.
Kate: So disappointed that I’m not doing time?
Roman: No, I’m not. Obviously, I was upset that you covered for lucas, and I do believe that actions have consequences. But I also care about you. So no, I don’t want you to go to prison.
Kate: Do you really mean that?
Roman: I do.
Kate: Okay. So is there any chance that we could get back to, say, what we had?
Eric: I guess you were surprised to see jada here.
Nicole: To say the least.
Eric: Well, her air conditioner was busted, so I told her she could shower here.
Nicole: It’s okay, eric. Jada told me that you two slept together.
Eric: That’s very forthcoming of her–why did you stop by to see me again?
[Knock at door]
Hey, nicole. I’m sorry, it’s just– I can’t stop thinking about you.
Nicole: But I’m married. And what about jada?
Eric: Jada who?
Nicole: Well, I came by to tell you that I had a dream about you this morning.
Eric: That’s weird.
Eric: Because I had a dream about you too. Woman tc: My a1c stayed here, it needed to be here.
Alex: Aha. This really is my lucky day.
Chanel: But we haven’t even said yes yet.
Alex: Said yes to what?
Allie: To getting drinks. Or have you already forgotten all the texts you sent?
Roman: Yes. Okay, no guarantees, all right? But yes, I am ready to give it another try.
Kate: I am so, so happy you said that.
Paulina: Oh, so does that pda mean what I think it means?
Abe: Great, great.
Kate: Roman forgave me, and we’re going to give it another go.
Abe: Fantastic, that’s great.
Paulina: Oh, this is more than great. This is a reason to celebrate! Oh, this calls for a toast!
Abe: Oh, oh, by the way, happy birthday, buddy.
Paulina: It’s your birthday?
Roman: No big deal, okay?
Paulina: Oh, well, now, okay, I will decide that, and I have decided that, well, it calls for champagne on me.
Roman: Paulina, you do not have to do that.
Abe: Oh, well, you know, whenever my wife decides to celebrate, we are going to celebrate. There’s no choice about it.
Eric: So tell me about your dream.
Nicole: I dreamt that you came over to my house. And you were making sloppy joes. And the slow cooker exploded, and the kitchen was covered in meat and, you know, pasta sauce. And I don’t know, I just thought it was totally funny, and I wanted to share it with you.
Eric: And culinary.
Nicole: So I told you about my dream. What was your dream?
[Knock at door]
Nicole: Eric. I can’t stop thinking about you.
Eric: You’re a married woman. Nicole, what about rafe?
Nicole: Rafe who?
Alex: That’s right. I sent you guys those texts.
Allie: Are we still on?
Alex: Sure. Unless I have to work late.
Chanel: Work late? Your brother’s the ceo. Since when do you have to work late?
Allie: Besides, don’t you need us to be your wing women?
Chanel: Yeah, help you scope out your next conquest?
Alex: You know, I’m not all that interested in that anymore.
Chanel: You’re not interested? Whatever happened to “I love all women”?
Alex: No, I do, I do. I’m just only interested in one. This morning, right here, I met the woman of my dreams.
Sonny: Seriously, I’m really looking forward to working with you. Is something wrong?
Stephanie: Sonny, I don’t think this is such a good idea.
Eric: What was my dream about?
Jada: Hey, so I gotta get to work, but I left my door open if you can still take a look at my a/C.
Eric: Yeah, not a problem. I totally will.
Jada: Okay, thanks.
Nicole: So your dream?
Eric: My dream. You showed up at my door with a singing telegram.
Nicole: Oh, I was singing? Oh, that wasn’t a dream. That was a nightmare.
Eric: No, no, my dream, you had a beautiful voice.
Nicole: Oh, well, that’s nice. So both of us had dreams about each other on the same day.
Nicole: That’s weird, huh? Like you said?
Eric: Yeah, like I said, weird.
Nicole: Okay, well, I’ll see you later.
Eric: Right, bye.
Paulina: I told you!
Kate: I know.
Paulina: I told you, roman would come around. Just like abe did.
Kate: I know.
Paulina: And now you two, you’re back together, and abraham and I, we’re married. And he’s running for governor.
Kate: Really, oh, my god, that is so great. That’s great!
Roman: All right, abe told me you talked him into running for governor.
Kate: This has turned out to just be a great day in all ways. To roman, happy birthday.
Paulina: And to abe, the next governor of the state.
Roman: Oh, yes.
Abe: Oh, and to a wonderful year for the four of us.
Paulina: That’s right. ‘Cause nothing can stop us now.
Kate: Hear, hear.
Roman: All right.
