Well, Doc, after the day I had, that dinner really hit the spot. Thanks.

It’s especially good when it’s delivered warm right to your front door. I’m sorry you had a rough day.

Mm. I’m just putting out fires. How about you?

The same.

Yeah. Listen to that.

Oh. Silence.

Beautiful, isn’t it?

Oh, you would not believe the day I’ve had. I spent the whole day just putting out–

Fires? Yeah.


So what can I get you, kid? I got plenty of leftovers from dinner. Would you like some?

No. You know what? I could probably use one of those non-alcoholic beers, but I think we’re out.

Actually, I picked up some on the way home, so I’ll be right back.

Dad, thanks.


Believe him? Everything that’s on his plate, and he’s thinking about me.

Your father is a very kind man.

Yes, he is. I kind of wish I had his generosity of spirit. And I also wish I was as good a dad as he is.

[soft dramatic music]

And we just need one more.

You, me, Maggie–

[tense music]

My mom is bringing someone.

When did that happen?

When you were in the shower. It’s Konstantin.

Well, then, we don’t need an extra space, love, because Konstantin is one man that I will not share a dinner table with.

What is this thing? What does it mean to Steve and to John?


Hey, you almost ready? We should be going.

Come in.

The car is out front. I don’t want to keep Sarah and Xander waiting.

Are you sure this is a good idea?

Why wouldn’t it be?

Well, Xander is not exactly my biggest fan, and for very good reason.

“She looked into his steely blue eyes, “now dark with desire and a longing that echoed her own. “He kissed her with a fierce intensity, “his tongue exploring her mouth as his hands touched her, caressing her curves.” Hmm. “As he lifted her up, she gasped, her breath ragged, “her legs wrapping around him as he pressed her against the wall.”

[knocking] Okay. All right.

Delivery for Miss Ava Vitali.

You’re my sushi delivery guy?

That’s me.

Oh, you don’t really look like a Gunther.

Fun fact, my middle name is actually Gunther. Stefan O. Gunther DiMera. But don’t worry, I took care of the guy. I tipped him even though the genius seemed to be a little confused on where to find the numbers on the doors. I hope you got enough in here for two.

Oh, you came for dinner.

Mm. [chuckles] No, I didn’t. Actually, I came here to drink with you.

Well, it seems like you already started drinking without me.

Yeah. Well, I don’t like drinking alone. And I thought to myself, I bet my little paisana– I bet she probably has a bottle of wine open by now. And lo and behold, so what do you say?

Do I really have a choice?

Come on. Come on. We can commiserate about how crappy our lives are.

All right. Look, I mean, what else do I have to do tonight? I’ll get you a glass.

I mean, this could be the nail in this guy’s coffin. I’ll be off in one second. I’m sorry, that wasn’t to you, Chad. Yeah. I mean, I really think this is going to be our Pulitzer. Okay, I’ll pick you up at : a.m. tomorrow. See you then.

[phone beeps] Hey.


Hey. Sorry I couldn’t take your call earlier. I was–it’s been a crazy couple hours.

Clearly, a good crazy.

Yeah. But better seeing you. I’m glad you’re here.

I came because I couldn’t find my earbud. And this is the last place I remember having it.

Oh, yeah. Yeah. Okay.

Maybe it’s on the nightstand.

Yep. Good call. I don’t see it here. Not there.

[both chuckle] Oh, yeah. Hey, look.


There it is.

I wonder how it got there.

I mean, these things are–you know.

Thank you. Wow, so you’re picking up Chad tomorrow at : a.m.? It’s like the crack of dawn. Where are you two going?

[soft dramatic music]

[soft orchestration] announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “Days of Our Lives.”

Brady, don’t be so hard on yourself. You’re a wonderful father.

Yeah? Is that why my daughter is indifferent to me now and my son’s in juvie rehab?

Here you go, buddy. Like I said, plenty of leftovers if you’re hungry.

Yeah, I’m good. Thank you.


[doorbell rings]

Oh, that’s probably Theresa. We have to sign some consent forms for Tate’s youth correctional wilderness trip. Hi.

Hey. Hi. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to interrupt your evening.

No, no, no, not at all.

Theresa, please come in.

I’m just here because I have to send this registered mail in the morning. You used to be able to do it online. But some tech-savvy teens hacked the juvie system, so–

Brady tells us that he’s doing very well.

Yeah. So we hear.

So we hear, yeah. I think we’re actually going to get to see him with our own eyes soon–a parental visitation.

Yeah, it’s going to be a very long few weeks.

Yes, I’m sure you’ve missed him so much. We’ve missed him as well.

Yeah. You know I think of all the times where I got really impatient with him or he would annoy me. My God, what I would give to just have him annoy me now and be able to embrace him and just tell him I love him.

[somber music]

Well, I understand very well not being able to forgive someone who put their daughter in danger, even if indirectly, which is why I don’t know whether Xander will ever trust me, let alone feel comfortable with me.

Well, you’re going to have to change his mind, Konstantin, especially since he’s going to be a very big part of my daughter’s life for a very long, long time.

Are you implying that I am also to be part of your life for a very long, long time?

Oh, no. No, I didn’t mean that.

What did you mean?

You know, it’s time to go. I don’t want to be late for dinner.

[soft dramatic music]

Come on, tell me. What are you and Chad up to?


Hey, I’m your PR consultant. I need to know.



Okay, okay, okay. I can tell you this much. We got a big lead about the drug crisis. And Chad and I are digging into it tomorrow.

I’m intrigued.

It’s got potential to be a major breakthrough– something that could get “The Spectator” national recognition.

Well, a recognition for you as well. I’m dying to hear more.

Well, you’ll have to wait till it’s in writing.

Fine. I will try to be patient. And now that I’ve got my earbud… I’ll be going.

Yeah. Wait. You have plans? I got a newly stocked mini bar chock full of those overpriced little liquor bottles. We could order some dinner. Stay.

[sultry music]

Mm-hmm. There you go. You want some?

No, I actually prefer to drown my sorrows on an empty stomach.

Suit yourself. It’s good.

What you got there?


What you got there? What is that? You’re doing a little light, uplifting reading? Are you? Huh? Rubbing the hot oil all over your body got you in the mood?

You know that phone call earlier– you know I was messing with you, right?

I knew that.



Okay, because it didn’t really seem like you did– not at first, at least.


Yeah. At first, it seemed like, you know, you believed me. And I kind of enjoyed that. I kind of enjoyed just making you a little crazy.

Oh, yeah? Well, that’s okay because I’m already halfway to crazy these days.

You really miss Gabby, huh?

Every minute of every day.

I–I can relate. I mean, that is, to, you know, missing someone.



RoboCop, you miss him? You don’t need–you don’t need to answer that question. I am sorry. Okay? How about I propose a toast? To lost loves… and new friendships. Can I call this a friendship?

Well, I mean, considering that you really annoy the hell out of me, and I can only–


Yeah. I mean, it’s true. I can only stand spending about minutes with you until I want to pull my hair out. So yeah, I guess we’re friends.

Well, for the record, you annoy the hell out of me.


That’s right.


You do. And hanging out with you makes me want to pull my hair out.


Because has anybody ever told you what a tremendous downer you are? I mean, you are. Bah, bah, that’s you. That’s you.


[laughs] Okay.

But in spite of all that, I do consider you a friend– sort of, okay?


You know.


So… To new friendships.

New friendships.

[soft dramatic music]

[melancholy music]

Okay. Here you go.

Great. Thank you. And we’ll talk later, yeah?

Yeah, yeah. Hey, how are you doing? Good?

Yeah, good.

Why don’t we give you a few minutes to talk?

No, this is your house.

It’s Brady’s home too, so we’re going to give you a little privacy, okay? Come on, Doc.

[tense music]

Why did Marlena just say she’s going to give us some privacy? Do they know? Do they know that I got high, Brady? Oh, my God, you didn’t tell them, did you?

Hello. Where are you going? And your answer better be to the store.

Maggie, please try to understand.

I don’t understand. This night is about me, my daughter, and my granddaughter, and not whatever bad blood is being stirred up between you and Konstantin.

Welcome to our home.

A gracious thank you.

So where are the girls?

Oh, Sarah’s feeding Victoria in the bedroom.

Okay. Well, I’m going to join them. You two behave yourself.


You have a lovely home– so warm and inviting.

Thank you. Let’s cut the chitchat, shall we?

[dramatic music]

Okay, then. What would you prefer to talk about? Politics, climate change, artificial intelligence and how it is transforming the world?

No, I want to talk about Maggie Horton– the best person I know, who I care about deeply. So if you do anything to hurt that woman–

Well, Mr. Cook, though I am weary of defending myself to you and other cynical people who are skeptical of my feelings towards Maggie, let me state once again, and unequivocally, and I hope for the last time, I also care very deeply about Maggie. And I would never hurt her, hmm? I am not the man you think I am.


Oh, my goodness. Did I just see pigs fly?

Okay. All right. You got to pick, okay? All right? You got to pick one here. I got to watch– hey, whoa, hey. Hey now, hey, whoa, watch yourself.

You watch yourself.

Okay. All right. All right, choose now. So Gabby– she is in prison like she is now, but it’s, like, for decades, okay? Decades. Or Gabby out of prison, she’s free… But you never get to see her again.

That’s a tough one.


So what do you pick?

Set her free. At least I know she’s safe. We’re out of wine.

[chuckles] And here’s another bottle– convenient.



[reads label in French] Let’s just open the damn thing up.

All right, you do that. Oops.


I was going to drink that.

Ahh! Let’s get hammered.





Somebody snorted. * Somebody snorted *

Thanks for the offer, but I’ve got a big day tomorrow. And you’ve got a very early one. We can’t risk another all-nighter like last night.

Well, I’d risk an all-nighter with you any night. Just having you stay over here, falling asleep in my arms, and our discussion– you know, I thought that was, like, a really important one and that maybe we understand each other a little bit better.

Yeah, I think we do.

It’s funny. As we were lying there, all these Seattle memories were just coming flooding back to me. I–just remembering how in love we were with each other, how much– how much fun we had.

You said at that time, we both got sick on oysters at that new restaurant, that seafood restaurant? God, definitely not my favorite Seattle memory.

Honestly, I love every memory that I have with you, even that one. Do you remember a few days after that, we went to that bluegrass festival. And the sun was going down. We were walking along the water. And it was cold, you know? And so I put my coat over you. And that was the first time I told you I loved you. It took three long weeks of me saying it before you said it back to me. But when you did, that was the happiest moment of my life.

[romantic music] I meant what I said last night, Steph. I’m still in love with you.

Please don’t be upset with me.


Listen. I did–I did tell Marlena. I did.

Brady, why would you do that?

Because I needed– listen. Listen. I know I shouldn’t have, and I’m sorry about that. But I was concerned about you and Tate. And I needed to tell somebody about it.

God, I mean, she already thinks I’m such a colossal screw up.

No, she’s a psychiatrist. She understands it. Hey, she understands addiction. She gets it. She doesn’t judge. She was just concerned. That’s all. I promise. Theresa, look at me please. Don’t be upset with me. Sorry.

Okay. Okay. Okay.


So you told your stepmother, and she’s a really good person. And she’s a psychiatrist, so okay. It’s okay that you told her. And I’m sure now she’s told John too. But he’s a really good guy, too, so–

[sigh] Okay.

Theresa, they’re not going to tell anyone. I swear. I promise.

I know. You’re right.

[sigh] God. Do you remember when we had our townhouse?

[tender music]

Yeah, how could I forget that?

Do you know that there was one time when I popped over unannounced to– I don’t know– borrow eggs or something. And Marlena answered the door. And it was very obvious that I had interrupted something between the two of them–

Oh, no.

In the middle of the afternoon.


I mean, I should have called before.

Yeah, probably. But I’ll bet you never made that mistake again.

No, I did not.


It’s funny.

Oh, but the way they look at each other, it’s heart-melting.

It really is.


You know, you and I used to look at each other… once upon a time.

Yes, we did– once upon a time. And now you– now you’re with Alex. And I really hope that that’s going well. I do.

I don’t think you do.

I do.

No. I think you wish what I wish– that you and I could have somehow made it work. That maybe you and I could have been the next John and Marlena.

I’m so sorry. I– I should have resisted the urge to declare my love for you again, especially because I know it makes you uncomfortable. I should have read the room. Just so you know, I’m not waiting for you to say it back like I was last time.

It’s hot in here.

Sorry. I know. You know what? I’m just sort of– I’m just talking, talking, talking. You have to go.

Actually… is that offer of overpriced little liquor bottles and dinner still on the table?

Yeah, definitely. Sure.

Good. Because there’s something we need to discuss.


It’s not bad. It’s about this whole “friends” thing.

I know I have trouble with boundaries, obviously. I did it last night. And I’m doing it again, but I promise that I’ll stop. Except I keep breaking that promise, don’t I?

It’s not that.

What is it then?

This whole friends thing– it isn’t working for me either.

And then, so when Harris and I, when we came back from London, everything was really great for us. You know? Yeah, like, I was really happy. I was probably the happiest that I have ever been in my entire life maybe. Yeah. And then… I felt hopeful.

[jazzy music]

And then Clyde had to come along.

Mm. Damn Clyde Weston.

Damn Clyde Weston. That firetruck and Mickey Fickey figlio di puttana.

Oh, my God.


Tripp’s got “qe-tuila”.


Yes. We could do shots. Are you in?



Whoa, whoa. Whoa.



Okay, okay, okay, okay. So–

[laughs] Yes, in honor–honor of those–whoa– those very happy times in London.

Are you about to–

There it goes.

I mean, what are you–

Come on. Ready? Are you ready? Are you ready?

Yeah, as I’ll ever be.

All right.

[mellow sultry music] Yeah.

[both grunt]



Oh, London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down.

Come on.

* London Bridge is falling down, my fair lady *

* Build her up with gold and silver * * Gold and silver, gold and silver * * Build her up with * Okay.


* Gold and silver, my fair lady *

Oh, hey. Oh.

Well, damn it.

It’s okay. It’s okay. I’ll get you some of Tripp’s.

It’s fine. It’s fine. My clothes are like the rest of my life now– one, big, hot mess.

Here, put this on.


That’s Tripp’s?

This is the first thing I could find.

That’s a lady robe. I’m not wearing a lady robe.

Hey, whoa, whoa, no, no, no. Hey, hey. No, no, don’t you dare sit on that couch with those wet, stained pants.


Hey, put this on. Whoa, hey, what are you– stop that. Stop it. No, don’t. Don’t. Don’t. Don’t take off those pants.

I got to. They’re all wet.

[exhales] Okay to sit now?

What do you mean? The friend thing isn’t… working for you?

Give me one of those minibar bottles.

[tender music]

The rum.


So… After our conversation last night… All I could think about all day today was… how great it was when we were together in Seattle. Late night talks. How you made me laugh. Not to mention the sex was–


On the floor of your apartment.

Remember that time in Whidbey Island?

At the tulip garden?

I thought they were going to find us.

And just knowing they might made it that much more exciting, right?

For sure.

I’d like to have more of those moments.

Starting now.

Are you sure?

I don’t know if I ever thought we could be the next John and Marlena. Well, they’ve set the bar pretty high. I don’t think any couple could reach that. I also think you’re idealizing what we had a little bit too much. Theresa, we were a hot mess.

We had our good times.

Yeah. But yeah, when we were high.

It was more than that.

I don’t–it wasn’t– it wasn’t really real. We were more addicted to each other.

[somber music]

I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

It’s okay. That’s how you remember it. No need to be sorry.

Hold on. Hold on.

I remember some really nice times too. Some really nice times. But that was then, and we’re different people now. Aren’t we?

Well, that was a delicious meal.

Xander is very lucky to have you, Sarah.

Oh, you mean as a cook? No, that was all Xander. He spent the entire afternoon in the kitchen.

Oh, well. Good for you, Xander. I enjoyed the meal very much.

Where did you learn to cook, Xander?

My mom, yeah. Not only did she teach me a bunch of great recipes, but the most important ingredient in any meal is patience.

She sounds like a wise woman. How old were you when you left Edinburgh?

Oh, you were raised in Scotland. I didn’t know that. I know you only from your reputation in Greece and when you did “business” with my father. But you’re Scottish, eh? Oh, that explains a lot.

What’s that supposed to mean?

Well, I have always found the Scottish people to be– mind you, this is only from my personal experience– to be cold and harsh, not to mention miserly.



You see, I was born and raised in Athena, the seat of the Greco-Roman Empire. And when I was a boy, I would scamper up the steps of the Acropolis two at a time. I learned to love, to dance, to debate. And by virtue of the teachings of my elders, my parents, and by the great Hellenistic culture, I learned the value and importance of being a man’s man.

A man’s man?


Like a strong, proud man who would never take advantage of a recently widowed and vulnerable woman.


A man’s man as in honest, someone who would never deceive and manipulate in order to live off said woman.

I resent those comments deeply, Mr. Cook. But I choose to take the high road to say only, you greatly underestimate me, young man.

Oh, no. No one could ever underestimate you.

Oh, dear God.

Maggie, it’s time to go.

No, it’s not time to go.

I will not stay anywhere where I am so greatly disrespected.

Well, fine. Order a car. I’ll see you at home.

Thank you for such a memorable evening, Sarah.

[tense music]

These people, this town.

I’m so sorry, Maggie.

No, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have brought him here. What was I thinking?

It’s okay, mama. It’s okay.

Hey, you two. Doc and I are going to shut it down for the night.

Okay. Well, good night then.

Theresa, it was nice to see you.

Good night. See you, buddy.

Hang on. Sorry. Before you go, I just wanted to– I know that Brady told you about my slip, Marlena. And John, I assume that you know too. And I just– well, I just want to say, thank God for Brady, the way he helped me get through it. I am back on track. I am going to meetings every day. And I am determined to never, ever let this happen ever again.

Well, Theresa, we are just really glad that you are finally getting the support you need.

And we’re here for you.

[gentle music]

I gotta head out.

What? Now?

Yeah, a new Black Badge client.

Okay, I should get going too.

I’ll walk you out, Theresa.


John, be careful.

Always, sweetheart.

I shouldn’t have forced Konstantin on you. And after such a delicious meal we had, I’m sorry it went so badly.

No, Maggie, it’s on me. I should have kept my mouth shut. It’s just my stubborn Scottish side and my proud Greek side ran smack into each other. And boom, I just–

Well, it’s all over now.

Well, not for your mom. She’s going to see him when she gets back to the house.

Listen. Like I said to you repeatedly, I’m a big girl. I can handle Konstantin.

Are you sure, mom? Because he was angry when he left.

And so was I. I can handle Konstantin. And then, I really should be going. I’d like to sneak one last kiss from that sweet little angel first. Okay.

I know. I know.

I mean, why did you have to provoke him in the first place? What was the point?

What am I supposed to do, Sarah? Just sit there while he tells me that all Scottish people are harsh and mean and cold and cheap?

Miserly was the word he used.

It’s the same thing. Look, I don’t– I don’t know what Maggie’s thinking now. But she was clearly upset by all that. Maybe she’s starting to see the light, that she’s beginning to realize that this man who’s basically living with her now is very bad news.

Well, I wish you wouldn’t characterize him that way. I feel like the jury’s still out on that guy. But look, whatever his flaws are, I think that she does need him right now. So I wish you would accept that.

Okay. You know, it’s getting late. And I should go to bed. You should get out of here. Go call a cab.

[sultry music]

Do you know that phone call this morning?

You really got me with all that sexy talk.



Yeah. I know.

You, hand on your back, on your bed, rubbing hot oil all over your body.

I was thinking… Maybe… I can help you finish the job. You know?

I put you on your back.


I rub the rest of that hot oil all over your naked body.

[intense music]

[both panting] – “He kissed her with fierce intensity, “his tongue exploring her mouth as his hands touched her, caressing her curves.”

What if Tripp comes home?

Don’t worry about it. They’re out late. What?

I’m gonna take the chance. – “As he lifted her up, she gasped, “her breath ragged, her legs wrapping around him “as he pressed her against the wall. “She clung to him, breathing in heavy gasps as they both moved towards the edge of pleasure.”

[gentle music]

Oh, well. Sorry, I’m going to– I’m going to turn in. How about you?

No, I think I’m going to stay up and watch a little movie– maybe “Casablanca.”

Oh, you’re in the mood for romance, huh? And I noticed that you and Theresa were getting along. Well, I’m glad to see that.

Well, we’ll always be linked by Tate.

That bond will never break, you know.

[somber music] Good night, Brady.

Good night.

[tense music]

Take a hike, Konstantin. This place isn’t safe for you right here.

You are worried about me. How thoughtful. You must be meeting someone dangerous. Oh, what am I saying? Of course, you are, Mr. Private Eye.

You don’t want to mess with me. What do you want?

Thank you for coming.

Sit down, Mr. Black. You and I are going to talk.
