Kim stands by the bar at the Brady Pub, looking at Eric and Marlena with a stunned expression.
KIM: I'm sorry, what did you just tell me?
Marlena takes a moment to find the right words before re-explaining her request to Kim.
MARLENA: Kim...Valerie and I have been going over Roman's files, trying desperately to figure out what exactly is wrong with him.
KIM: Right. I mean...it's obviously some kind of dementia, right? I mean...what else could it be? The memory lapses, the hostile outbursts, it's all the symptoms.
MARLENA: Yes...but there's a problem.
Kim reacts with increasing volume and hostility toward Marlena.
KIM: Which is?
Marlena breathes in deeply before responding.
MARLENA: There are no medical records for Roman from before he returned to salem in 1997.
Kim looks at Marlena, completely stunned.
Gabi stands at Jennifer and Liam's table at Club TBD, suddenly snapping out of her stunned moment of silence. She extends a hand to greet Liam.
GABI: Oh! Sorry! Yes, I'm Gabi Hernandez. It's...nice to meet you.
They shake hands awkwardly, as Liam gives Gabi a firm look, which Gabi picks up on. She steps away slowly, as Jennifer attempts to continue their chat.
JENNIFER: How is Nick doing, anyway? I heard he's...been given a...huge promotion.
GABI: Yeah, we're...we're celebrating that now.
JENNIFER: Good. I'm glad. I was worried when Abigail told me how much pain he was in at Salem U the other week.
Gabi feigns concern, but is mostly just uneasy with the line of questioning.
GABI: Oh, ah...I dunno. He's been fine tonight. We're having a celebration dinner for me. I'm...getting back into modelling.
Jennifer perks up at the news, making Gabi smile, but half-heartedly, as her worries consume her thoughts.
JENNIFER: Oh my gosh, that's amazing news, Gabi! Congratulations!
GABI: Thanks. I..ah...anyway, I'm gonna just...head back to him now. It's...it's good to see you, and to meet you. Thanks for asking how we're doing, Jennifer.
Jennifer looks on, confused by her subdued reaction. She smiles, regardless.
JENNIFER: Anytime, sweetheart.
Gabi steps away from the table, leaving Jennifer looking confused as she watches Gabi hustle back to her table with Nick.
Jennifer then turns back toward Liam, her brow furrowed.
LIAM: Something the matter?
JENNIFER: Yeah. Something is very wrong with Gabi. And I really hope it has nothing to do with Nick.
Billie stands in Daniel's apartment, disappointed by Daniel's declaration that they're out of coffee.
BILLIE: Well, I mean, I'm disappointed that you're out of coffee, but...I don't really...NEED it.
Daniel emerges from behind the kitchen island, and walks toward Billie, wrapping his arms around her waist.
DANIEL: Well, here's what I propose.
Billie reciprocates, looking seductively into Daniel's eyes.
BILLIE: Mm, what?
DANIEL: You go pick up some coffee--
Daniel tries to stifle a laugh as Billie feigns indignation.
DANIEL: (laughs) Yes. You go pick some up for me at the corner store...and when you come back...I'll have everything else ready for you.
Billie responds, herself now trying not to laugh at Daniel's suggestion.
BILLIE: You're gonna make me go out, in the rain, and grab coffee for YOU.
Billie replies sarcastically, giving Daniel a displeased look.
BILLIE: And they say chivalry is dead.
Daniel laughs, as Billie rolls her eyes. Daniel steps to his chest of drawers in the corner of the room, and grabs an umbrella for Billie, handing it to her.
DANIEL: Here. I promise I'll make it up to you when you get back, 'kay?
Billie raises an eyebrow at Daniel, taking the umbrella and playfully jabbing him in the side with it.
BILLIE: You better. Okay, I'll be back. Love you.
Billie and Daniel share a quick kiss, as she heads out the door of Daniel's apartment.
DANIEL: Love you.
As the door closes, Daniel looks at his living room, particularly looking up at the ceiling, and clasps his hands together, rubbing them together as he nods his head eagerly.
DANIEL: Time to get to work.
Justin stands by the doorway to the kitchen at the Kiriakis mansion, observing Anjelica and Alex in an embrace in the living room. As they separate from their hug, Alex looks warmly at his mother.
ALEX: I...ah...I'm gonna call the Salem Inn for you and we'll get a car to bring your stuff over, okay?
ANJELICA: Oh, sweetheart, thank you, BUT...
Anjelica grabs her clutch from beside the bar, and pulls out her phone.
ANJELICA: I've gotta head back there, anyway. I have a lot to take care of.
ANJELICA: I should be back in an hour, okay?
Anjelica spots Justin from the doorway, and smiles smugly at him.
ANJELICA: JUSTIN! You'll be pleased to know you'll have many more opportunities to show off your biting wit.
JUSTIN: So I've heard.
Justin steps into the room, a far more humble demeanour than he'd carried before.
JUSTIN: Look, Anjelica...I don't relish the thought of you staying here, don't get me wrong...
Justin looks at his son, and sighs before finishing his thought.
JUSTIN: But it's important for me that my son is happy, and that he spends time with his mother. And that's what he wants, then I'm not going to deny him that.
ANJELICA: That's a very thoughtful thing to say.
JUSTIN: Well, don't pat me on the back just yet. See, I just want you to know that I will not tolerate any of the manipulations that I've known you to engage in over the years. I don't want your campaign team in this house. It'd be a conflict of interest.
ANJELICA: Duly noted.
JUSTIN: And just so we're clear. If I find out you've been up to anything even remotely duplicitous, you're outta here. Do I make myself clear?
Anjelica nods, for once, not a snarky retort to be heard.
Anjelica looks up at her son, who smiles at both her, and Justin.
Gabi sits back down in her seat at the table she's sharing with Nick at Club TBD. Nick's pleased to see her return.
GABI: Hey! Sorry that took so long.
NICK: Don't even worry about it. Who's that with Jennifer?
GABI: Oh! It's ah...some guy, Leon I think? Liam? Apparently they've been seeing each other for awhile. Abby thinks he's okay, but JJ's not sold on him.
NICK: Well, you know. There's always someone who's not going to approve of who you're with.
Gabi nods, trying to appear disinterested so that Nick changes the subject.
GABI: Hey, ah...you know, it's pretty late, and...well...I was hoping to at least say goodnight to Ari. Besides, sitters aren't cheap, and...with Will and Sonny out for the night...
Nick holds up a hand, in an attempt to stop Gabi for continuing.
NICK: Say no more, I'll get the bill, we'll be outta here. Can I at least walk you to your door?
Gabi smiles, nodding her approval.
GABI: I'd like that.
Nick smiles back as he flags down T for the bill.
Billie steps back into Daniel's apartment, carrying a wet umbrella, and shopping bag with a tin of coffee in her one hand. She calls out to Daniel as she enters, but stops midsentence from surprise at what she sees once inside.
BILLIE: Okay, Daniel, I got...the coffee...
In the living room, the couches have been moved away, the lights turned off but for strings of blue-tinted LEDs strung from the ceiling, simulating the stars. Daniel sits on a blanket, placed on the floor of the living area. Daniel holds his arms out, welcoming Billie inside, as a song begins to play.
Billie lays her umbrella down against the chest of drawers next to the door, still stunned by the display Daniel's put on.
BILLIE: Wh...what is all this?
Daniel points up to the ceiling, looking up at the lights he's strung up. Billie looks up curiously, following Daniel's eyes.
DANIEL: Since we weren't able to see the stars in the park like we wanted...I improvised a bit.
BILLIE: It all makes sense now.
Billie slowly walks over to where Daniel's sitting on the blanket.
DANIEL: And now, I can make the coffee you wanted.
BILLIE: Well, there's just one problem now.
DANIEL: What's that?
Billie kneels down next to Daniel, looking into Daniel's eyes with a fiery sensuality.
BILLIE: I'm not really in the mood for coffee anymore.
Billie leans in closer to Daniel, who raises an eyebrow at Billie's suggestion.
DANIEL: Oh? And just what are you in the mood for?
Billie rests her arms on Daniel's shoulders, their faces now mere inches apart.
BILLIE: I think you can guess.
DANIEL: Mmmm yeah.
As Daniel and Billie lean into their passionate kiss, they lay back on the blanket, caught up in the heat of the moment.
Kim leans against the bar at the Brady Pub, stunned by the news Marlena's just shared with her about her brother.
KIM: Marlena...are you seriously trying to tell me that because of some...clerical error, you're going to leap to the conclusion that the man we've been calling my brother for over twenty years is an imposter?
MARLENA: Kim, there's more to it than that--
Kim snaps at Marlena, shouting out, causing more than a couple stares from other patrons.
KIM: I should hope so!
Kim, quickly realizing the scene she just caused, looks around her, and quickly calms herself down.
KIM: You're supposed to be helping to save my brother, figuring out what's wrong with him, and why he's losing his memory. Not trying to prove some hairbrained theory you've cooked up.
Eric pipes up, coming to his mother's defense. He's firm, but respectful to his aunt.
ERIC: Aunt Kim, it's not like that. Look, I don't like this any more than you do, but I understand why Mom's asking this.
KIM: Then, if you understand it, why aren't you the one agreeing to get a sample for this test?
Eric looks away, sheepishly backing down. Kim raises her eyebrows, looking to Marlena pointedly.
KIM: That's what I thought.
MARLENA: Kim, I'm not trying to cause a problem for you, or for the family. I just want to get to the truth.
KIM: The truth is that my brother is losing his memory in chunks, and it's only a matter of time before he is going to be a shell of the man we knew. We need to be looking for solutions, or at the very least, looking to make arrangements to ensure Roman is well cared-for when he becomes incapable of doing so himself. Not trying to solve some kind of...tin foil hat conspiracy theory true.
MARLENA: Kim, Stefano has done some outrageous things in the past, it's not inconceivable--
KIM: It may not be inconceivable...but it's also not likely. And it's definitely not the time.
Kim looks intensely at Marlena, who looks back, pained by Kim's rejection of her plans.
KIM: Let this go, Marlena. Please.
Marlena sighs, closing her eyes to keep herself calm, as Eric looks on, concerned for his mother, putting a hand on her shoulder.

Okay here goes (lol). Working within the framework of existing storylines. This story is spread out over the course of two weeks or so, mingled with other stories. The time-frames are not precise as this is just a rough layout of ideas that I haven't even fully thought. Just writing as I'm thinking...
The only thing that would half-way interest me in the Jack startup story is if Jack convinced Ashley to partner with him (when a disgruntled Ashley decides that Billy isn't listening to her after he has discarded all her ideas).
Meanwhile, Jill gets wind of this new venture and advises Billy to do what he has to do in order to bring both Jack and Ashley back to Jabot. Billy, encouraged on by Phyllis, insists that he won't need them because their startup will flop. Jill walks away irritated with Billy's attitude, thinking that perhaps her son needs to be brought back down to earth.
Together, Jack and Ashley decide, not only build out Ashley's discarded ideas for cosmetics but they also decide to launch a moderately priced line of cosmetics--which are basically "dupes" of Jabot favorites, including an updated dupe to John Abbott's first formulated fragrance Vive Riche with new and improved scent and packaging, with a cheeky name like Tojour Riche (Forever Rich), a play on the name of John Abbott's fragrance.
Desperate for investors, Jack and Ashley approach Jill about Chancellor taking a stake in the emerging company.
Jill declines until Ashley tells her the one of the ideas was to revamp fragrances from the Jill's beloved Men's line.
Ashley proposed this to Billy but he literally trashed it. Jill is incensed but reminds Ashley that Brash and Sassy had that line and retooled it as Dare and Ashley reminds Jill that Brash and Sassy folded when Victoria returned to Newman, Jill correctly guesses that the proprietary rights are on the verge of lapsing and may be up for grabs.
Ashley suggests that she can make "dupes" for the product but Jill wants her beloved Men's line out of Newman hands.
They both look up the proprietary rights and it is Jill's suspicion that the rights are about to lapse is confirmed.
Jill leaves a message for Michael to meet her as she wants to file some paperwork.
Ashley proposes that they partner 50-50 but Jill suggests that Chancellor might want full rights to the products to put out on their own. Ashley emphasizes the need to revamp and update the products and haughtily suggests that Jill knows full well that Ashley is the best chemist to improve the cosmetics. Jill agrees but Jill wants it publicized that this will be a revamped version of the original Men's line which she created. Ashley suggests having HWG handle the PR but Jack, still stung by their rejection when he pitched the idea to them, rejects the idea. Jill mentions a recent hire for CI's marketing department that she finds to be very impressive. Jack and Ashley are both receptive to meeting her ( down the road--enter Shari Headley as the marketing executive).
Jill meets with Michael, who, on a promise of lawyer/client confidentiality, helps her to file paperwork to secure the proprietary rights to the product line that was once her Men's line for Jabot.
Meanwhile both Billy and Victoria hear rumors about Jack and Ashley taking meetings with investors for their new venture and both Jabot and Newman executives begin to worry. Kyle wonders whether he should have moved with his father to the new venture. Billy wonders whether it's finally time to nullify the dreaded 'blood Abbott clause' and Victoria seeks more information on what products Jack and Ashley are working on.
As this new marketing exec meets with Jack and Ashley, all hit it off immediately and since investor money has been coming in, they decide that there is money in the budget to hire the new exec to marketing and PR immediately. The first order of business is to set a launch date.
Curiosity getting the better of her, Abby decides to do some digging and discovers that there is a plan to revamp products that became a part of Victoria's Dare line. A smirk comes across Abby's lips as Victoria enters the office to ask her sister what has her looking like the cat the swallowed the canary, to which Abby responds "You have no idea, do you?". Abby drops a hint about a new men's cosmetics line coming soon to shelves everywhere.
Billy enlists Traci's help to try to get Ashley and Jack to meet them over dinner to discuss repairing the rift but when they all meet, it turns out to be a pitch for Ashley and Jack to fold their venture and return to Jabot. Jack and Ashley scoff as it's too late.
Victoria tries to enlist Michael's help to try to send a cease and desist letter to Jack and Ashley as she has guessed it has to be them trying to use Dare as a blueprint for a new line of men's cosmetics and Michael declines her offer. Victoria asks Michael if he's working for them and Michael only states that he hasn't met with either Jack or Ashley about Dare. Victoria is suspicious of what Michael isn't saying.
Neil sees the new marketing/PR exec at the GCAC, offers to buy her a drink and proceeds to chats her up. When he finds out about her PR background he states that HWG could use someone of her considerable skill-set. As she is about to decline his offer, Jack steps in and says "Oh I see you've met our new head of marketing and PR". Neil looks perplexed. The new PR exec promptly thanks Neil for the drink, proclaims that "gentlemen, I have work to do" and proceeds to exit as Jack says that he'll see her at the office.
At some point, Jill starts is getting impatient and after leaving texts, which Michael has mostly been ignoring Jill decides to "take the bull by the horns" and call Michael for a lunch meeting. Michael, who does not let on who he's on the phone with, tells the caller that he already has plans with his wife as Lauren hovers in the background. Michael can guess what it is about and believes that she could get the news that she wants soon, if only she'd exercise some patience. Jill emphasized that being patient did not get her to where she is in life, ever. As Lauren tries to ask Michael who he's arguing with on the phone, the doorbell rings and Lauren answers it. A courier has her sign for a legal sized envelope. "Michael, this says urgent". Michael can barely get the words "I'll call your back" out as he hangs up. He takes the envelope, opens it and examines the papers, briefly lets out a sigh of relief before looking at Lauren and saying "I'm sorry honey but I'm gonna have to cancel our lunch date". Lauren rolls her eyes.
At the outdoor café, Shari Headley's character shakes Lily's hand and thanks her for agreeing to meet at such short notice. The new PR/marketing exec explains that she want to use Lily's agency to find models for a campaign blitz for the launch of a dynamic new men's cosmetics line, although she cannot yet give many details, suffice it to say that it is a major upgrade of a once beloved line. Lily furrows her brow.
Later, at the GCAC, Lily and Abby meet for lunch and discuss their suspicions that someone is revamping Dare and it won't be Victoria or Newman. Abby thinks it is her mother and Jack. Lily mentions the meeting she had earlier with a very elegant yet sharp marketing exec that gave little details. They both muse on how mysterious the situation is and how it may lead to a footrace between various corporations.
Lauren on the phone says "Michael just canceled with me again, how about joining me for lunch?"
Hilary, Jack and the unnamed marketing/PR exec (ToBeNamed) sit down to lunch at the GCAC. Jack notices Jill and Michael at another table. Jack makes the introductions between Hilary and the exec, who takes the lead in the conversation and discusses having a segment that introduces some of new products before they go to market, to generate consumer interest, she presents Hilary with a gift bag of products, including some prototypes for what will be their men's line. Jack suggest that Devon try those out. Speaking of Devon, Jack asks Hilary about who they can talk to about book a private party at the GCAC for a future launch party. Hilary suggest that she can put the PR exec in touch with the club's manager.
At the other table, Jill peruses that papers that papers with a thousand watt grin on her face. "Well that was fast!" Jill exclaims. "Not fast enough for me", Michael says. "You practically called or texted me every day". As Jill starts to apologize, she notices that Lauren and Paul have just sat down to lunch.
Lauren mentions how great it always is to meet up with her good friend. She complains that Michael has keeps canceling plans with her and she's doing all she can to not become suspicious. Paul urges her to keep on that track. Paul observes Michael sitting with someone whose face is hidden behind a menu. "Speaking of the devil", Paul gestures toward Michael's table. Lauren follow's Paul's glance and sees Michael sitting with someone and gasps. As the waiter makes her way to the table, Lauren points to an item and asks Paul to order for her as she marches toward Michael's table. Jill hands the menu to another waiter. Lauren chastises Jill for arriving in town without letter her know and asks how long she's been her and is appalled when Jill tells her two weeks. Jill tries to explain that there was a perfectly good reason why she wanted to be somewhat incognito and says that Lauren might as well know the reason why. Michael pulls up a chair and Lauren sits, telling Jill that "this had better be good".
At Newman, Victoria and a team are busy on phones and computers when an employee puts a laptop in front of Victoria and points to a section on the screen. Victoria gasps loudly as Abby walks in and asks what's all the drama about. Victoria points out that Jill has reclaimed proprietary rights of her men's line with means that Dare, in its current incarnation is effectively dead.
Neil, Devon and Lily discuss and how messy things could get their suspicions are confirmed and Ashley and Jack have somehow gotten rights to Dare's line of products. Neil is unsure how that's legally possible. He knows some companies don't bother to get patents because of their expense but sure Victoria made sure that she held the proprietary rights to the products. Lily thinks it's possible that Dare got lost in the shuffle after Victoria went back to Newman and became embroiled in a tussle with Ashley for the CEO position. Neil and Lily start to discuss their respective meeting with the new marketing/PR exec and Devon wonders whether HWG will regret not being able to snag her for their PR company. Hilary walks in and mentions just having had a meeting with her and that she is already meeting with the manager at the GCAC to discuss a launch party. Neil remarks that this new exec wastes no time. Hilary calls Mariah and tells her they need to schedule a staff meeting about an upcoming show to tease some coming attractions for some products from Jack and Ashley's venture. Devon marvels at how sharp the people behind this venture all seem. He wonders aloud whether it be too late to try to buy a stake in the company. Hilary proposes that if she can get in a joint stake with Devon and/or HWG perhaps she can help.
Cane is irate with Jill for keeping him in the dark. Jill states that this her own stake and is separate from Chancellor. She urges Cane not to worry as this venture, in no way competes with anything at Chancellor. Cane still sulks at having been kept out of the action.
At Newman, Abby announces that Victor wants to meet with them now. With a smirk, Abby taunts Victoria for letting the ball drop.
Later, Ashley informs Jack that she has heard from Jill and the revamp of the men's line is a "Go". Ashley and Jack are in an upbeat mood that this venture is truly coming together.

You think I’m crazy, too?Kirkland: Getting help doesn’t mean you’re ill. It means you need to get rid of this anger you’ve got.Michele: I’m sure you’ve heard what she did.Kirkland: I know what happened. She was devastated, hurt, and could hardly forgive herself when we thought you were dead. She felt really down about losing you.Michele: She’s got me, and the only she can act toward me is bitchy.Kirkland: You both are doing it to each other.

Hillary walks into Nate’s room and sees Olivia with her head laying upon Nate’s chest. It’s hard to take in the sight of Nate hemmed up in a body cast knowing she played a significant role in making that happen. The guilt is so much a tear forms in her eye.
Olivia sits up and wipes the tears coming from her eyes and also she takes a tissue to wipe her nose since every time she wells up her nose begins to run. She sees Hillary. She stands up.
Olivia: Hillary right?
Hillary gives a faint smile.
Hillary: Yes Mrs. Hastings.
Hillary extends her hand out to shake with Olivia’s.
Olivia: I didn’t hear you come in. I’m sorry you have to see me like this.
Hillary: No your fine. I came to check up on Nathan. What are the doctors saying?
Olivia: Dr. Whitfield says the swelling in Nate’s brain has subsided. He’s been easing Nate out of the coma induced by medication.
Hillary: That’s so great. So that means he could be waking up soon?
Olivia: That is the prognosis. Then there is what’s underneath the cast. He has broken arms, legs and possible spinal injury. It’s too soon to tell.
Hillary: One step at a time… I came here to give Nate some hope.
Hillary rubs her stomach.
Hillary: Nathan and I are having a baby.
Olivia looks in shock.
Olivia: A child? You and Nathan?
Hillary: That’s right. I came to tell Nathan, maybe if he heard the news it would give him the will to wake up.
Olivia: I just had no idea that my son was dating any one.
Hillary: Well I’ve only been in town a few months. Nate and I were together in college but I had to leave to care for my dying mother.
Olivia: I’m sorry to hear that. I must say I’m sorry because Nate never mentioned a Hillary. The only woman I know about being in his life is Roxanne. And I only found that out at Lily’s homecoming party. When my son admitted to having feelings for Roxanne. I had no idea this was all going on.
Hillary: It’s a complicated situation.
She says as she has a flashback of hiding in Roxanne’s apartment and then recording the conversation she overheard with Nate and Roxanne where they confess their feelings for one another.
Olivia: I take it there is no love lost between you and Roxanne. I saw the altercation you had with her in the emergency room.
Hillary: My half-sister is a waste of air that other people could be using to do good things with.
Olivia: Oh wow. This is complicated. A pair of sisters fighting over my son.
Hillary: There is no fight Mrs. Hastings…Complicated, yes I can give you that but a fight, well If you want to call it that, let’s say I won, I am having your grandchild. A baby trumps everything else.
Hillary says with a smile rubbing her stomach.

Episode 184: Keemo helps Victor fight Jack!
Written by: ML Cooks
Story Consult: Martin Saenz
Creative Consults: Cary Richardson and Alex Washington
Spencer waits in a room that Roxanne walks into.
Spencer: Well you know I’ve fallen on hard times. I work as a cook at Gina’s and I don’t have that kind of money. They took my car and house so I now take the bus and rent.
Roxanne: Some father I have. Went from a pimp to being a district attorney and now to being a broke bum.
Roxanne: I need help and my father is unable to be here for me. I bet you would help that tramp Hillary.
Spencer: I am doing the best I can. No one asked you to attack your half-sister and over what? A man? Nate? I told you two before, you know when you two lionesses had your first encounter at my damn apartment breaking down my door that no man is worth fighting over. My landlord was not happy with having to replace the door. I don’t have the money to keep replacing doors or paying bails. I also got quite a few noise complaints behind all that.
Roxanne: If you are not here to bail me out then why are you here?
Spencer: Now see I had some good news for you. Leslie was right, that mouth of yours’s is out of control.
Roxanne: It’s not my mouth. I just have zero respect for you or Leslie. You’re a pimp and she was your hoe. How can I respect people like that? And to think you’re my long lost parents. Usually when a family is reunited they are happy. Not this time. I was disappointed and embarrassed.
Spencer: You really are your own worst enemy.
Roxanne: No, that slut daughter of yours is the enemy.
Spencer can only just shake his head back and forth and wonder why his daughter has so much venom in her veins.
Spencer: Where does it come from?
Gloria looks at Lauren with big eyes.
Gloria: Of course. Michael is my son and I’m very worried about him. I’ve never seen him so low.
Lauren: Michael should have thought of all of that before he became a bitch boy for Victor Newman.
Gloria: Stop calling him that! Michael is a good man who takes care of his family. You can’t say that about a lot of men these days.
Lauren: A lot of men don’t become bitch boys either do they Gloria? Look I really think its best you leave. I am divorcing Michael Baldwin and suing for custody, sole custody of Fenmore. No one will change my mind.
Gloria: So you’re going to throw everything you and Michael built up all these years away?
Lauren: I didn’t do that Michael did when he put Victor first!
Gloria: You have really changed Lauren.
Lauren: Have a good day Gloria. You have your own issues you need to deal with.
Lauren opens the door and motions Gloria to leave.
Gloria shakes her head at Lauren and leaves her apt. Lauren closes the door.
Gloria: Oh Michael I tried. I really did. Lauren is really going to go ahead with this divorce and custody battle. I won’t give up though. I will find a way to save your family.
She pulls out her cell phone and notices 4 missed calls from Keemo. She thinks of him and then of what Lauren said to her: She’s in love with her deceased husband’s grandson.
Gloria takes a deep breath and then leaves Brownstone Apartments.
Victor is smiling from ear to ear as he basks in the recruitment of Jack’s son Keemo to his side in the war against Jack.
Victor: I do my boy. I am going to hit Jack from all angles. But there is one problem.
Keemo: Problems is a word not in my vocabulary.
Victor: I like that. Let’s say… a minor detail then?
Keemo: Which is?
Victor: Your father has all my assets. I have no money, not even a place to lay my head. I have nothing Keemo. I need money to get on my feet and get Jack back. I can’t get my revenge without any money. Your jack ass father has it all.
Keemo leans back in his chair and takes a deep breath.
Victor: A lot of it my boy.
Keemo: Mr. Newman as you know I am just starting up my fashion house. It’s designed to put a dent into Jabot. I have loans out for this new business venture. I really don’t feel entirely too comfortable loaning any money out right now.
Victor: I am Victor Newman.
Keemo: I don’t have money like that.
Victor: Do you know how any of this makes me feel? Me, Victor Newman begging for a loan. This is what your jack ass father did to me. With or without you Keemo, I will get back my power, my respect, my family and my empire back. I just need a helping hand right now. I have nothing.
Keemo: I understand Mr. Newman.
Keemo spins around in his chair and looks out the ground to ceiling window that overlooks Genoa City.
Keemo: Mr. Newman no cost is too high to take out my father Jack. Jack is an ass and he’s in the way of my happiness with Gloria and he has no respect for me.
He spins back around in his executive chair to face Victor.
Victor: You won’t regret this and this fashion house will be a major success,… we will see to that once we get Jack out of the way.
Keemo: I can wire or write a check for a million. To help you find a place and get back on your feet.
Victor: Cash please my boy. I don’t have any means to cash a check these days. Jack has really did a number on me.
Keemo: Wow… Cash it is my friend. I’ll work on it and then give you a call to let you know when and where you can pick it up.
Victor: I really appreciate that my boy. Our characters are already winning against Jack. Jack’s son is going to give me a startup loan to take out his own father who is the enemy at this point in my story. Check mate Jack Ass Abbott. I am going to crush his character!
Victor stands up with a broad smile as Keemo frowns up wondering why Victor is sounding so weird.
Victor: Will it be today? My character is tired and a little hungry.
Keemo pulls out 60 bucks from his wallet and slides it across his desk.
Keemo: Go get something nice to eat.
Victor looks down at the money, shocked that he has been reduced to charity.
Victor: Thank you Keemo. Tell no other characters in Genoa City of this charity. It would make my character look so bad.
Keemo: I’ll be in touch Mr. Newman.
Victor: Good day.
Victor grabs the money and leaves HOK and therefore No Name Tower.
Keemo spins around in his chair to take in his view of the city and ponder a few thoughts.
Why does Victor get weird in his speech and the fact that he is helping Victor take out his own dad. Keemo thinks of the loyalty he should have to Jack since Jack is his father. But Keemo doesn’t feel loyalty from Jack’s end. Keemo then wonders what his mother Luan would think of the situation that is developing. Father vs. Son costarring Victor Newman.
Roxanne: I don’t have venom in me. I just don’t like that slutty daughter of yours.
Spencer: I wish you wouldn’t address her like that. She is your half-sister and we are a family and we need to make this work.
Roxanne: I don’t need anything like that. I just need my Nate. But Hillary slept with him as soon as she hit town. That’s a hoe to me.
Spencer: They were together in college. They picked up right where they left off. How is that being a hoe?
Roxanne: I really like how you just keep defending her? What about me? I was going to have a singing career until you the pimp and my mother the college slut were exposed as my parents. Now that is ruined. My future is ruined thanks to my new found parents and yet you keep defending tramp ass Hillary. You seem to know a lot about hoes considering my mother was one of your hoes back in the day.
Spencer: That’s the part I don’t get, if you want or wanted Nate so much then why were you with Devon?
Roxanne: I love Devon. He’s special, kind and handsome. He’s… just… I don’t know, Nate just lights my fire. He turns me on. I was a little bored with Devon I guess. He didn’t deserve what I did to him but I never slept with Nate. I never betrayed Devon in that way. Nate and I held restraint yet when that tramp stamp Hillary hits town on the first night she had sex with him… It hurts.
Spencer: Roxanne this thing with Nate… your going have to let it go.
Roxanne: And let Hillary win? No! Nate and I have something real. We share so much. He was there for me and I was there for him.
Spencer: Hillary did win. She’s having Nate’s baby. She’s pregnant Roxanne!
Roxanne feels sharp pains in her gut and heart.
She says softly as she turns away from her father.
Only this time with tears forming in her eyes

Ben is at his house getting dressed.
Someone is at the door. He walks out of his room and to the front door.
It is Luke
BEN: I have to say I am.
LUKE: I know you are the one usually doing the surprising, but I thought I would for once.
BEN: This is a pleasant one.
LUKE: I just wanted to come and say that I really enjoyed your visit last night.
BEN: I had a great time too.
LUKE: But I also wanted to say that well…not to be needy, but I really hope you won’t pull away again like recently.
BEN: I apologized for that.
LUKE: I know, but still…
Elijah is also home.
And he also gets a surprise visit at the door.
It is Eartha!
ELIJAH: I’ll be damned. Look who is showing her face here.
EARTHA: Don’t act too astonished.
ELIJAH: It’s always touch and go with you on if you want to see me or not.
EARTHA: Well right now I do.
ELIJAH: May I ask why?
EARTHA: Because I have been thinking about you a lot lately.
Elijah cannot help, but smile wide when she says this…
Blair is calling Todd
Todd is on his Bluetooth in the car.
TODD: You again Blair?
BLAIR: Don’t sound so angry about it.
TODD: I am not angry, but you are getting bothersome.
BLAIR: I just want to make sure you get to New Mexico okay.
TODD: Your concern is cute and all, but I will be fine.
BLAIR: Just text me when you get to Paradise.
TODD: I will.
BLAIR: Thank you. I love you.
TODD: I love you too.
Blair hangs up.
She then grabs the file that she has with info on Reva Shayne.
BLAIR: Guess I will read more info on Reva Beast.
She smirks as she goes back to reading the file…
James Stenbeck is with Gary
GARY: I’m nervous.
JAMES: Why the hell are you nervous?
GARY: We need Todd Manning to be successful on this.
JAMES: Yes I do need him to be successful.
GARY: Are you not nervous?
JAMES: I’ve lived through so much, my nerves are shot.
GARY: Well this plan has not been smooth sailing but it has reached this important point.
JAMES: My son Paul will not get away trying to take money that belongs to me.
GARY: I sometimes wonder about your relationship with your family.
JAMES: Don’t. That money is rightfully mine, not Paul’s. He thinks he is getting the last laugh, but I always do.
Holden Snyder is at the City Hall.
He is starting his new job.
Holden is surprised to see a door with his name on it.
HOLDEN: My own office even. Pretty fancy.
He opens the door and walks inside.
HOLDEN: And it looks like plenty of work already too.
He walks to his desk where there is a stack of papers.
HOLDEN: This is quite a load.
He picks some of them up and glances over them.
Just then Mayor Woods walks in.
MAYOR WOODS: Welcome to day 1.
HOLDEN: Thank you sir.
MAYOR WOODS: I hope you will find your office very accommodating.
HOLDEN: I do. Thank you.
MAYOR WOODS: You have a lot of numbers to crunch for this city.
HOLDEN: (Glances back at his desk) I see that.
Cut to Ben and Luke
BEN: Let me apologize again.
LUKE: You don’t have to. I was half joking.
BEN: No, I am sorry I got distant and kind of rude. I have been preparing for a ski trip in the future.
LUKE: Back to the slopes?
BEN: Yes. Going to be fun. Maybe you can tag along. It is where we met after all.
LUKE: I would happily go if I can get the time off.
BEN: Hey, how about I make things up to you by taking you out to breakfast?
LUKE: I am not going to turn that down.
Eartha is With Elijah.
ELIJAH: So…you have been thinking about me huh?
EARTHA: First off you can wipe that sh*t eating grin off of your face.
ELIJAH: That was subconscious.
EARTHA: But yes I have…I…I miss you. I wish we could just be closer. Like way back in our youth.
ELIJAH: You know I have wanted that for a long time now. To be closer to you…
EARTHA: We can be great friends.
ELIJAH: Then what is stopping us from being closer friends? You have been back in Union Creek for damn near fifteen years now.
EARTHA: Frankly because I am afraid.
ELIJAH: Afraid of me? I am a cop now, not an almost gangster like when we dated.
EARTHA: I am not afraid of you. I am afraid of those intense feeling we use to have for each other. I am afraid of them coming back.
Elijah grabs her hand and that causes her to react nervously.
EARTHA: I am running late for work. I should go.
She pulls her hand away.
ELIJAH: No wait. We were actually getting somewhere.
EARTHA: Sorry, but I have to go.
JAMES: I need to put an end to whatever plans Paul and Barbara have.
GARY: They reopened their company.
JAMES: Yes I know. Using some of my money! They always think they know what they are doing…
James has a flashback:
GARY: What are you thinking about, boss?
JAMES: Just how stupid the people I’ve called my family can be. All of my sons and their mothers have different ticks. My youngest…I am sure his mother Christy will keep him in line for now. However Paul and Barbara never know what is good for them. I have tried to love my family, but I always have to stay one step ahead of them, because I am the one that know what is good for them.
GARY: I am sure you do.
JAMES: And don’t worry, Gary. When I put a stop to Paul’s theft, you and I can continue what we started when we came here to Union Creek in the first place…
Blair is sipping on a glass of wine.
BLAIR: This is quite the read on Reva beast.
She is giggling with some glee.
BLAIR: Reva was Amish for many years?
She cracks up laughing.
BLAIR: And treated like royalty on some island? What were they smoking? Must have been good!
She laughs again and finishes off her wine.
BLAIR: Reva Shayne sounds nuts. I think I can use that to my advantage.
Eartha is now at the hospital arriving for work.
Morris approaches her and pulls her aside into an empty hospital room.
MORRIS: So my dear…why did you take the morning off?
Morris eyes her suspiciously.
EARTHA: I just needed more rest.
MORRIS: More rest?
MORRIS: So you are saying you stayed in bed late?
MORRIS: That’s funny, because even though we may have separate rooms now….I know you were not home this morning before I left.
EARTHA: Oh at that time I must have been out clearing my head.
MORRIS: Changing your story already?
EARTHA: What is this 3rd degree all about?
MORRIS: What were you clearing from your head?
EARTHA: It is none of your business!
MORRIS: I am your husband, of course it is my business.
EARTHA: Starting to become husband in name only…
Eartha walks out leaving Morris alone in the empty room.
He shakes his head.
Holden is in his office.
HOLDEN: This town has a mess going on with their budget.
He seems to be getting frustrated.
HOLDEN: I think I have been hosed into this job.
He is going over the paperwork trying to crunch some numbers.
HOLDEN: Man where are we going to start to get this budget back on track?
Luke and Ben are at breakfast.
They are having fun as Luke is laughing about something.
LUKE: You are shady with that waitress.
BEN: Sorry, but her limp is cracking me up!
Ben’s phone rings.
Ben pulls it out.
BEN: Sorry but I do have to take this.
It is Gary on the other line.
BEN: How can I help you?
GARY: Actually we won’t need your help any longer.
BEN: What do you mean?
GARY: We have completed our task which means you have completed yours. Your service of keeping Luke distracted is no longer needed and you have received your last check for it. Whatever you do now is up to you.
Ben looks across the table at Luke who smiles back at him…

JESSE: Yeah, this is the real city that never seems to sleep or have peace.
ANGIE: I know how badly you wish to change that.
JESSE: I do, Angie. I do.

Eliza shows up at JJ’s apartment.
ELIZA: You don’t call. You don’t text. Hell, I would even take a written letter like its 1990.
JJ: Sorry, been busy.
ELIZA: Are you busy right now?
JJ: A little.
ELIZA: Well…you should still come and eat with me while I’m on my lunch break.

Todd Manning and Paul Ryan shake hands.
TODD: We have so much to talk about…
At the womens shelter:
CHARLOTTE: Is it safe for you to leave here, Jacy?
JACY: Actually it is. You see, my abusive ex-boyfriend has finally been thrown in prison!
ALI: Really? For what?
JACY: Always trying to be a hardcore thug and sh*t.
ALI: These boys. What is wrong with them?
JACY: Too many damn screws loose.

CHARLOTTE: Me too.
JACY: When you do, get in touch with me. I’ll give Miss Cho my info when I can.
CHARLOTTE: I definitely will.
JACY: I am so ready to get back! Can’t wait!
Jacy smiles with nothing but elation.
Cut to a frustrated Vin
He is with Chavo
CHAVO: I wish you would not work yourself up.
VIN: That is a bit impossible.
VIN: Because it is so frustrating that we still cannot track down Ali nor Greg. They both deserve so much revenge done to them.
CHAVO: Why are you even doing this? Why do you care?
VIN: Are you serious right now bro? Because they both disrespected me so damn hard!
CHAVO: No I mean why do you even care about this kind of life? We both know that you--
VIN: --Do not question me Chavo! Just shut up and let me focus.
At the park:
MIRANDA: So tell me how you plan on saving the world?
HUNTER: Can we not talk about that right now. I think we need to have more fun.
MIRANDA: What kind of fun?
HUNTER: See those sprinklers on over there? Let’s run through them.
MIRANDA: I didn’t realize we were eight.
HUNTER: Oh come on! Feel a little free.
MIRANDA: I do not want to get my clothes all wet.
HUNTER: Well you can be boring and stay here. I am going on through!
Hunter gets up and walks to the sprinklers.
Miranda ends up following him.
They both start to run through them getting wet.
HUNTER: See! This kind of feeling is something people should not lose..
Jesse is still with Angie but he gets up.
JESSE: Sorry, but I really need to get to the city council meeting.
JESSE: It is an early one.
ANGIE: And I don’t get no smooch?
Jesse kisses her on the cheek.
ANGIE: That is not going to do it!
JESSE: Oh yeah?
Angie kisses his lips.
Jesse then starts to kiss her all over her face.
ANGIE: Okay, okay! You win.
JESSE: I hope those kisses were good luck.
ANGIE: Me too, baby.
Cut to Todd and Paul’s meeting.
TODD: So I am a journalist and that is how I came across this company.
PAUL: And you want to do a big piece on BRO?
TODD: Something like that. I’ll need you to come to Colorado for this piece though.
PAUL: I checked out your paper and it has a strong online following so why do I need to go to Colorado? Can’t you just interview me right here right now?
TODD: It is not that easy. I do a more hands on approach.
PAUL: Thank you for the offer and all, but I am not too keen on going to Colorado right now. I have a company to run.
TODD: You are not seeing the bigger picture Paul. You may want to see if you need glasses. Where I live, in Union Creek Colorado there is some new big competition for you that just opened.
PAUL: Are you talking about that little small stream Chic Spirit Designs?
TODD: You are not giving them enough credit. I am offering you a step ahead on this competition. Do not take them lightly.
PAUL: It would be a good publicity for us.
TODD: I thought you may see things my way.
PAUL: But….I still don’t want to go to Colorado.
Todd becomes obviously frustrated.
At the women’s shelter:
Charlotte and Ali are now alone.
CHARLOTTE: I think maybe we both can leave here too.
ALI: I do not need to go run into Vin and probably get killed.
CHARLOTTE: We live in a big city we can move somewhere far away from our exes.
ALI: There is still always a chance.
CHARLOTTE: A small one. We came move in together and be roommates. Split everything. It can work.
ALI: I like the idea and wish I could, but I don’t know if I want to chance it.
CHARLOTTE: Well at least think about it.
Vin is still agitated.
CHAVO: I am going to go get us some weed so you can calm down.
VIN: No! I would rather we take my frustrations out another way.
CHAVO: Yes I know you want to kill Greg, but I don’t know where he is.
VIN: There is something else we can do.
CHAVO: What’s that yo?
VIN: Let’s go rob another gas station!
At the park: Hunter and Miranda are now soaked.
MIRANDA: That was crazy. You are crazy. What are we doing?
HUNTER: Having fun. I am at least.
MIRANDA: Nah, I am too.
HUNTER: I really do have fun every time I hang out with you.
MIRANDA: Aww I do too. You and all of your craziness.
HUNTER: I’m the least crazy person in this town, probably.
MIRANDA: I’ll be the judge of that.
HUNTER: Ready for round 2 in the sprinklers?
HUNTER: (Laughs) I’m kidding.

Eve and JJ are in her bedroom where JJ wonders why Eve brought him back there. Eve shrugs. She's not even sure. Eve wanted to talk to JJ in private. JJ figures a bedroom couldn't be more private. Eve shakes her head. JJ knows exactly why Eve brought him back there. JJ isn't sure they should do this again. Eve says she has a bottle of wine out front. JJ asks what happens after that drink. Eve looks down at the bed.
At the hospital, Jennifer tries calling Roxanne back. When she gets Roxanne's voicemail, Jennifer leaves a message, insisting Roxanne return her call. Lucas drops into Jennifer's office. He was going to see Sonny, but Adrienne's in with him. Jennifer wonders why that would stop Lucas from going in to see his son-in-law. Lucas recalls kissing Adrienne. He shakes the thought away, claiming he doesn't want to intrude. Lucas can remember how he felt when people would interrupt his time with Will when he was in the hospital. Lucas notices the keys on Jennifer's desk. "E.L." Jennifer confirms they are Eve's. Lucas asks why she has them, and Jennifer explains Eve left them. Jennifer admits she thought about using them to find out what Eve's hiding. Lucas smirks. A scheming side. Finally, a family trait they share. Jennifer laughs. She informs Lucas of her younger scheming days. Lucas had nothing on her! However, Jennifer realizes she needs to return the keys to Eve and just give it up.
Adrienne comes out of Sonny's room and calls out to Kayla, wondering if she has a minute. Kayla looks at her watch. She has a meeting shortly, but can talk to Adrienne. Adrienne wonders if Kayla ever found out what caused Sonny to get worked up the other day. Kayla shakes her head. He never made mention. Will didn't either. Kayla thinks it could've been nothing, just a normal reaction that was heightened due to the wound. Adrienne hopes so. She doesn't want to see her son dealing with anything besides recovery right now. Kayla thinks that's a great idea. The last thing Sonny needs is to deal with outside stress. Adrienne flashes back to kissing Lucas outside the town square. Adrienne nods, agreeing with Kayla.
Theresa is shocked to find Anne still at the hospital. Anne says she received notice of an impromptu meeting with Dr. Johnson. Theresa wonders what her aunt would need to talk to Anne about. Anne isn't sure. She questions if Theresa said anything to Kayla about the other day. Theresa swears she said nothing. To anybody. Anne hopes so. Anne has saved Theresa's ass too many times to be thrown under the bus because of some brainless billionaire. Anne wonders what Theresa is doing at the hospital. Theresa admits she wanted to use the hospital resources, but the Internet server is down and she's unable to. She'll have to rely on her own resources, Theresa guesses. Anne receives a call, notifying her Kayla is ready.
Jennifer knocks on Eve's apartment door. No answer. Jennifer pulls out the keys Eve left behind at the hospital and uses them to open the door. Jennifer calls out to Eve. Surprised Eve emerges from the back, demanding to know what Jennifer is doing in her home. Jennifer shows the keys and says she wanted to return them. When Eve didn't answer, Jennifer let herself in. Eve tells Jennifer she needs to go. Now! Just before Jennifer makes it to the door, JJ comes out. His eyes widen when he sees his mom. Jennifer wants to know what's going on. Eve manages to cover by picking up a box of things Paige gathered that belonged to JJ. She claims JJ came over to pick them up, so Paige didn't have to see him. JJ goes along with Eve's story. Jennifer looks doubtful, but keeps it to herself. She wonders if JJ is ready to head home now that he has his things. JJ nods and leaves with the box. Jennifer turns to Eve one last time before walking out the door. Alone, Eve covers her mouth at what just happened.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Adrienne is on the phone, giving Jo an update on Sonny. Doctors are still unsure how much longer he'll remain in the hospital. Adrienne promises to have Sonny call his grandmother tomorrow. Adrienne is startled when she turns around and finds Lucas. He tells her they need to talk about what happened the other night...
Eve pours a glass of wine. As she runs her hand through her hair, Eve wonders what the hell is wrong with her. JJ is practically a child. Eve takes a sip of her wine. "How screwed up am I?"
JJ walks into the Horton house with the box from Paige's in hand. Jennifer follows. She looks at the box JJ sits down and then at her son. Jennifer asks if JJ wants to talk about it. JJ shakes his head no. He should start on homework due tomorrow. JJ heads upstairs and Jennifer calls out to him. She reminds JJ that she's there if he needs to talk. JJ nods and continues up the steps. Jennifer sighs. Her phone rings, and it's Kayla with good news. Anne Milbauer will no longer be a problem for them. She was fired for trying to drug Brady Black. Hospital security cameras captured the deed. Jennifer calls it a new low. Kayla notices Jennifer's reaction. It's much more low-key than she expected. Jennifer admits she has something else on her mind. The ladies make plans to grab breakfast before work tomorrow. Jennifer hangs up and looks up the stairs.
At the pub, Theresa contemplates searching Dr. Mandrake's name in a search engine database on her cell phone. Just as she types the doctor's name and presses "SEARCH," the phone is yanked out of Theresa's hand by Anne! She's furious and demands to know what Theresa told her Aunt Kayla. Theresa asks what Anne is talking about. Anne explains that Kayla just fired her. Anne refuses to go down alone and all she has on Theresa will cost her job too!

But I know your father has and he still is. The bad thing about you never being in prison is you really don't know how it works in there. You see if you want something from someone you have to give something for them to help you. Or in my case you just take it. See your father Mike is in prison for killing your mother which I'm pretty sure you already knew that. See I needed his help and he gay me an offer and I declined it which made him very mad. So for pay back he made me his bitch, which is exactly what I'm going to do to you.

GENERAL HOSPITAL FANFIC EPISODE 14
Monica tells Tracy what she did
Created by: Frank and Doris Hursley
Written by: C. Nathaniel Richardson
Consultant: Beebs and YRbiggestfan
PART 1 - AT THE PARK
Sebastian West walks into the park with his book bag and sits on the bench. He looks to the left, then to the right and is certain that nobody is there. He takes out a small bag of marijuana, then looks for something else while focused on the bag.
Sydney: Looks like you need one of these.
Sebastian: Thank you.
He reaches out for the lighter, but Sydney pulls it back.
Sydney: So are you gonna smoke that all by yourself?
MICHAEL’S APARTMENT - Kiki walks in with a gift bag, smiles, and takes a red teddy out of it. She turns to the table, which is pristinely set with two candles, handkerchiefs, silverware, two champagne glasses, and a silver, ice filled bucket with a bottle of champagne in it. She then gets a call on her cell phone.
Kiki: Hmm if it isn’t my sexy fiance. Wait till you get home.
Michael: Hey babe. I’m...gonna be home a little late tonight.
Kiki: Let me guess...ELQ stuff.
Michael: Yeah we just got word that they’re gonna announce the winning bid for the Waterfront Project. I’m sorry. I promise I’ll make it up to you.
Kiki (sighing): Okay. I can’t lie and say I’m not disappointed.
Michael: I know I know. I’ll see you later. Love you.
Kiki: Love you, too.
AT THE QUARTERMAINES..
Monica: I’m gonna do whatever it takes to keep Carly away from Jason.
Tracy: And how do you plan on doing that? It hasn’t worked all these years. What makes you think it’s gonna be effective now?
Monica: I brought down Sonny Corinthos didn’t I?
Monica flashes back to giving a recording of Sonny admitting that he shot A.J. to Anna Devane…
Anna: What is this?
Monica: Listen to it. It’ll get you the fish you’ve been trying to catch for years.
Monica flashes back to the present.
Tracy: I don’t know how you managed to pull that off, but Carly isn’t gonna be that simple.
Monica: Trust me none of this is easy, but I’ll be damned if I let Carly destroy my other son.
CAMERA PAN ON CARLY AND JASON, QUICK CUT TO THEME SONG.
Sebastian and Sydney are sitting next to each other on the park bench, and they have just finished smoking a joint.
Sebastian: You better not tell anyone about this.
Sydney: Oh please. It’s not the end of the world if someone finds you smoke weed. Besides, can you tell me where I can get some more of this good stuff from?
Sebastian: How do I know you’re not a narc?
Sydney immediately stands up.
Sydney: Don’t be ridiculous. Narcs normally don’t smoke joints!
Sebastian: Find your own weed guy.
Sydney: You’re a total ass!
Sebastian: Thank you.
Sydney: I’m hungry.
Sebastian: Go get something to eat then.
Morgan: Hey Kiki.
Kiki: Morgan what’s up?
Morgan: Just went for a run. What’s up with you?
Kiki: Nothing, just getting something to eat.
Morgan: Are you sure that’s it?
Kiki: No it’s not.
Carly: I would never hurt Jason.
Monica: You...are poison. I lost one son because of you and Sonny and I won’t stand by and watch that happen again!
Carly: I’m sorry, Monica, for your loss. I wouldn’t know what to do if I lost Michael or Morgan, but A.J. made his own choices.
Monica: You’re a human tornado. You leave destruction in your wake.
Jason: Mom that’s enough.
Monica: It’s true. You need to stay away from Carly before she destroys you.
Tracy: Jason we’ve gotta get to ELQ. The winning bids are gonna be announced soon.
Tracy walks out the door, and as she closes the front door, she walks and looks in her purse for something. Suddenly, Sydney bumps into her, and Tracy notices a lighter that falls out of Sydney’s purse.
Sydney: My God! Not only are you a bitch, you’re a clumsy bitch.
Tracy picks up the lighter.
Tracy: Hmm what would this be for?
Sydney: What is it to you?
Sydney tries to walk past Tracy but Tracy stops her.
Tracy: You wreak!
Sydney: Wreaks of what?
Tracy: Are you really gonna try to play coy with me Syd?
Sydney: I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Sydney: I can’t wait till Luke gets back. It’s been a long time for you hasn’t it? You really need to find a hobby.
Tracy: Does Maya know that you light up joints?
Sydney: She knows all about that.
Tracy: Maybe where you lived before, but not here in Port Charles.
Sydney: Is there a point you’re trying to make?
Tracy: I bet Maya would ship you to an iron clad, maximum security, prison-like rehab facility. In fact, why don’t we call her right now and let her know...
Sydney (grabbing Tracy’s phone): Please...don’t tell my sister.
Jason: Mom can you watch Danny while I go to the office? Sam should be coming soon to get him.
Monica: Of course I’d watch my grandson.
Carly: I have to go to the MetroCourt.
Monica: On your way out of Port Charles I hope.
Monica walks into the living room and sits on the couch as she watches Danny continue to play with his toys.
Monica: Hey there my little grandson. Oh I just so wish Alan were here to see you. I’m gonna be in your life as much as possible.
Monica: I never even got to know your brother Jake, but your big brother, Michael is thriving, and running ELQ.
Robin: Big brother Michael? Monica what are you talking about? The only brother Danny had was Jake.
Monica turns around and is shocked.

Josie- Tyler you can pretend to be nice all you want but come on it's me I've worked here for 15 years and believe me I've hated it everyday and besides I've decided to open my own night club.
"Josie walks off to her office, Tyler follows"

(EXT: London, England- Edmund's Creepy Castle)
--Ashton sits in the living room, on the phone, and learns of Eden, Kirk, and Pearl's impending arrivals. He smiles and says that it's time that everything be put in place so he, Kelly, and everyone else can live "happily" ever after. Kelly enters the room, able to catch the last part of his sentence, and he hurries off the phone.
"Happily ever after huh? I thought that was already decided on our wedding day, Mr. Lavery."
"Oh, it was, it was, Mrs. Lavery. I just got some news that should delight you and perhaps give you some pleasure during your downtime on our extended stay here in London. I'm sure you're about tired of my father, Christine, and all the construction on the East Wing by now."
"Actually, I find your father quite fascinating. A bit mysterious, but he never ceases to hold my interest. So......what is this happy news that is supposed to bring me such delight?"
"Your sister is actually on your father's jet, on her way to London right now. I've invited her....and her friends to stay here with us. At the castle."
"Oh? And what friends are you talking about? Julia? Mary?"
"Actually, they're both men. Pearl Bradford, that old friend of yours and my #1 fan, and Kirk Cranston."
"KIRK CRANSTON? Eden is coming HERE.....with Kirk Cranston? What the hell would possess her to bring that man here....let alone on daddy's jet?"
"I sense there's some sort of history there."
"Oh, not much. Just that they were married years ago. And he attempted to kill her. Multiple times. And gaslight her. And kidnapped her...and Cruz....again, multiple times."
"Doesn't sound like the ideal travel companion."
"My point exactly. It's all so strange. Why would Eden leave her children, Cruz's parents, and daddy, to come to London with Kirk Cranston, of all people?"
"Sounds like you'll have plenty to discuss over dinner tonight. They should be arriving before then and I've asked Christine to prepare a special meal for all of us....and our guests."
"Guests?" Edmund says, entering the room.
"Yes, father, guests. Kelly's sister, Eden, and a couple of her friends will be arriving later. I hope you don't mind that I've taken the liberty of inviting them to stay here. I figure there's plenty of room for everyone. It is a CASTLE, after all."
"Kelly, would you be so kind as to give my son and I a moment alone?"
"Of course. Obviously my husband here should have discussed this with you first. You've been very gracious to let us stay here as long as you have. I hope you don't feel too put out that Ashton here has invited my sister and her.....friends to stay. He's just trying to make me happy is all, as he always does. I'll go and get a cup of tea from Christine in the kitchen. Would either of you like anything?"
"Nothing at all my dear, the privacy will be quite enough."
Kelly exits the room, muttering to herself about Eden, Kirk, and :Pearl being the oddest of combinations. Back in the living room, Edmund glares at his son.
"Just what are you up to? It's been hard enough keeping Kelly away from her mother....now you've got her sister coming as well? Just what in the devil are you up to?"
"I suggest you listen and listen good. If you want this charade of a life that you've created for yourself and your pod in the East Wing to continue, you'll do everything that I ask of you tonight. Otherwise, I'll expose you to the Capwell girls, who will surely go running to daddy...."
"You wouldn't dare. You wouldn't risk your marriage to Kelly Capwell, that I know."
"You're right, I wouldn't. And you'll understand things as they unfold today. You just do exactly as I say or this whole thing will blow up in your face tonight father. Do I make myself clear?"
"Why you little.....just who do you think you are speaking to me this way? How dare you assume that I would go along with this, risk everything FOR...my God, if your mother were alive...."
"I thought she was. Upstairs. In her private bedroom. Isn't that the double entendre you're leading right now? You're just going to have to trust me for now father. As for now, I must be going. I have some business to attend to. Please, keep Kelly entertained while I'm gone. She seems to find you.....fascinating. If only she knew just how interesting the life you're really leading right now really is...."
Ashton exits and as he leaves, Edmund takes out his phone and dials Pamela.
"We've got trouble. Big trouble."
(EXT: Lionel and Augusta's London Flat)
--Augusta sits in her satin robe, staring at her husband across the breakfast table. Clearly uncomfortable, she attempts to break the ice.
"Well that went rather smoothly yesterday."
"Those aren't the words I'd use if I were you, Augusta. How dare you keep this from me for as long as you have. How dare you!"
"How dare I? After what that woman and your tawdry affairs with her have done to me over the years, you should consider yourself lucky I clued you in at all."
"Yes, lucky. I couldn't care less about Sophia and the last thing I want is for you to go waltzing down memory lane with her. But, I did the noble, unselfish thing and told you the truth. I thought you'd be rather proud of me."
"Yes, proud. What is with these one word inquisitions you're spitting at me? If I had my way, that woman would have stayed dead and buried where she belonged. Ironic, though, isn't it. Here we are, 34 years later, and it's 1979 all over again. Sophia is operating under a false name, with no previous recollection of her old life, Marcello is her only confidante....it's de ja vous. Only this time...well, I'm not quite sure I understand the logistics of it. She didn't fall off a yacht for pete's sake, she was pronounced dead. By Saint Mary Duvall of all people and there's no way Sister Mary would lie about this sort of thing. You have to give credit where credit is due....Edmund has pulled off quite the caper here. I think you'd rather enjoy his torturing of CC, if it didn't involve you're quintessential love, Sophia, that is. And here I am, allowing you to play hero to the tawdry slut you cheated on me with and created that.....circus performing son of your's with. And the only reason he's even alive is because your mother switched the babies all those years ago. Otherwise, Sophia would have shot your only child with her."
"Thank you, Augusta, for the refresher course and the lovely walk down memory lane. Well one thing is clear- I couldn't get through to her. And if I can't get through to her...there's only one other man who can....CC!"
"Lionel, have you gone mad? Did you not listen to the history course that Marcello gave you? CC has a past with Loretta as well as Sophia. His involvement could make this situation more chaotic than it already is and worsen Sophia's condition, which God knows is the lassst thing you'd want to do."
"He has a right to know that his wife is alive, Augusta. Whether I like him, hate him, respect him, or not, he loves her and is grieving for her. It isn't right that we keep this from him."
Augusta walks across the table and hits Lionel on the back of the head.
"Would you get your brain wired back in, Lionel? We need to put Sophia first here and involving CC is only going to cause a bigger mess than this already is. I suggest that we at least wait until we here from Marcello before we do anything rash. Where is that "dame" of a mother of yours when I need her to talk some sense into you? We at least need to wait until we hear from Marcello first. At the very least, he did put that tracking device in the suitcase, so we'll know- Sophi--Loretta's--oh whatever the hell that tramp is calling herself's whereabouts are at any given time. Patience, dear. I doubt this is the last we've heard from Marcello."
(EXT: Lady DuMonde's Mansion)
--Ashton is greeted at the door by the butler and requests to see Marcello at once. Marcello swiftly enters the room and wonders aloud what Ashton could want with him. Ashton suggests that they talk somewhere in private. He explains that he accidentally stumbled into Sophia's room and realizes what his father has done and wants to right the wrong. Marcello admits to a knowing Ashton that he already knows about Sophia and is trying to jog her memory. Ashton quizzically asks if anyone else knows and Marcello tells him only Lionel and Augusta.
"Doesn't Sophia have a history with the Lockridges?"
"A long one- she had a forbidden love affair with Lionel for a good portion of her life."
"Well couldn't you use that and your hypnosis techniques to kick start her memory?"
"I've already thought of that and I tried it yesterday, but Sophia and Augusta exchanged words and Loretta....Sophia got cold feet. She's truly convinced that she's your mother."
"My mother-in-law is brainwashed into believing she's my mother. Sounds like something out of a soap opera."
"You'd think so, but this has happened before, and the last time it did, it caused insurmountable, permanent damage to the Capwells, especially to Channing, Eden, and CC"
"Of course. Well, if I could get you in to see her again tonight, do you think you could get Lionel to come alone?"
"I'm not sure. Augusta can be a handful and she'll want to come but.... I can try."
"Try you will, if you want to bring Sophia back. And you will succeed. You seem a smart man, Marcello. I'm sure you can come up with a good reason to bring Lionel to the castle on his own. Here"
Ashton writes down his phone number.
"This is my cell number. You call me when you're on the way. Try to make it around 7:30, as we will all be at dinner at that time and it will be much easier to sneak you into the mansion."
"All of you?"
"Yes, my father, my wife, her sister..."
"Eden's going to be there?"
"Yes but she'll be at dinner. I haven't told Kelly or any of the Capwells about Sophia because.....well, because my wife has told me the sordid family history and I'd hate to put any of them through that again before Sophia realizes that she's....Sophia. I'm disgusted by what my father has done- it could damn well ruin my marriage and there's no way in hell I'm going to let that happen. You just follow my instructions and I'll make sure you're able to see Sophia. Now, I must be going, as my father will soon be wondering where I am. I was very careful not to be followed. I don't want him to have any idea that I know about this, nor that I'm helping you."
"I appreciate it Ashton You're doing a good thing."
"Yes well, I hope so and I do hope that everything goes as planned. Now as I said, I must be going."
Ashton sees himself out and immediately dials his phone.
"Ok, it's all set. I hope you're ready for everything that's about to happen."
The camera pans to a man in a suit, sitting in an office, without his face being shown.
A familiar, English accented voice is heard on the other line.
"Oh, I'm ready. I'm more than ready."
They hang up and the camera pans up to the mystery man.....

Carter grabs a faint Lisa before she falls do the ground. Scott rushes over to a table nearby and pulls out a chair while Carter drags Lisa to the chair, seating her.
Lisa: (faint) Scott? Is it really you?
Scott: Yes, Mom.
Carter comes back to them with a glass of water. He hands it to Scott, who is now kneeled next to his mother. He holds the glass while Lisa takes a sip.
Scott: You all right?
Lisa: I will be . . . (strokes his face gently) So glad to see you . . .
Lisa then strikes her son across the face. Scott holds his face, which stings. Carter is stunned. Lisa jumps up and hovers over her son.
Lisa: How dare you! How dare you do this to me!
On Scott totally shocked,

Henry, with a chef hat and apron that reads "I rub my meat for two mins," dances around the kitchen while the pots of the stove create a slight fog from the steam.
Henry: (singing) Pour it up! Pour it up! That's how we ball out! . . . Strips clubs and dollar bills--
He is abruptly interrupted by a knock at the door. Aggravated, Henry opens the door to reveal his younger sister, CLARK COLEMAN.
Henry is speechless.

Mo and Casey sit on the sofa making out. Tom then barges in slamming the door. The two break apart like two teens that have been caught in the act. As the rearrange their clothes:
Tom: Where is your mother?!
Casey: She's at the station. What's wrong?
Casey: What now?
Tom tosses the paper at Casey before he storms up stairs. Casey unballs the paper to see the headline (from last episode) featuring Tom, Carter, and Scott.

Casey kisses Mo (before she leaves) and closes the door behind her. Tom comes down the stairs, undoing his tie and tossing it to the side.
Casey: You sure you're fine?
Tom: Do I look fine? (off Casey holding his hands up for mercy) Sorry.
Casey: No problem but does this story even has any truth to it? I mean we haven't seen or heard from Uncle Scott since I was child. You sure Emily isn't fabricating this to p*ss you off?
Tom: No she isn't. For once she isn't lying in that rag she calls a paper.
Casey: (confused) So then I don't get while you're mad at Emily . . .
Tom: Because she's ruining my campaign! Don't you see it!
Casey: Dad, I doubt anyone is taking Emily or her paper seriously. Her past isn't squeaky clean either . . .
Tom: But when you're running up against someone with a stellar track record such as Carter Wallace--
Casey: Dad, you need to chill.
Casey goes and sits on the sofa. He pats on it to indicate he wants Tom to join him, to relax. After fighting it, Tom gives in.
Casey: Dad, you have a stellar track record too.
Tom: I do but--
Casey: Not "buts." Who cares that you left mid office almost fifteen years ago? That was then. This is now.
Margo rushes in breathing heavily.
Margo: Oh honey! There you are. (rushes over and kisses Tom) I went by the campaign office and Bonnie told me everything. (calming down) You OK?
Tom: Not really.
Margo: Don't worry, honey. We'll figure this out--me, you, Bonnie, Lisa--
Tom jumps up from the sofa
Tom: Mom! I gotta go see her.
Margo: We're coming with you.

Henry: No! You just come beating down my door and you want me to stop?
Henry: We haven't heard from you in years! Maddie, me, Bernadette--
Clark: I'm fine. (swiping hair out of face) Can't you tell?
Henry: Not really but I'll drop it for now . . .
Clark: I just need a place to stay for a few nights--
Henry: What? Hold on--you just come in here and expect to provide you a haven when you can't tell me where the heck you've been for the past five years?! Really, Clark?
On Clark moaning,

Picking up where we left off of Lisa slapping Scott, and both he and Carter stunned:
Scott: What was that for!
Lisa: For not picking up the phone and calling me! For not visiting me! Your brother--
Scott: Oh I've seen ole' Tom already.
Lisa: What? So you've been in town for awhile now! (to Carter) And you knew?!
Carter searches for the right words, but before he can get them out, Lisa pops him in the face. Carter now holds his face, shocked.
Lisa: Now I see why you were using me--getting close to me. You wanted to stick it to me and Tom. (pointing to Scott) And he's the best way to do so?
Scott: He didn't even know I was related you to until the night I arrived in Oakdale.
Lisa: Oh really? So how do you two know each other?
Scott: We met awhile back in Somerset. I had a small practice there, he was there visiting--
Lisa: So you two became buddies and decided to come here and run for district attorney?
Carter: No! I didn't even ask him to join me until weeks after I decided to come to Oakdale.
Lisa: (stewing) Oh OK . . . So Tom knew you were here?
Scott: Yes. I've been here since Christmas.
Tom, Margo, & Casey come rushing in and up to Lisa, Carter, & Scott.
Lisa pops him across the face.
Lisa: How could you! (to both of her boys) How could both of you! . . . (enraged, flailing around) How could all of you!
Casey and Margo step back, not wanting to feel the wrath of Lisa.

EXT. DOCKS – NIGHT
A thick fog nearly consumes the setting when a boat pulls in. A pair of feet steps off the boat and it is revealed to be John Hu. He looks around and likes what he sees. Suddenly, a Don Chi, Hu’s henchman, steps off the boat from behind him. He has a briefcase in hand.
Don: Pretty foggy here tonight, huh?
John: Just how I like it.
Don: So you never told me why we’re here in Springfield.
John: Patience, patience. All good things to those who wait.
John digs into his pocket and reveals a small photo of Harley. He brightens up at the sight of her.
John: (putting it back in his pocket) We have to get things prepared for the shipment. Is all the money there.
Don: (tapping the briefcase) Yep. Counted it twice. Five million dollars.
John: Good. Let’s get back on the boat and circle around the bay until they arrive with our stash.
Don: Yes, sir.
Don heads back onto the boat. John starts to head back onto the boat, and takes one look back . . .
John: Springfield . . . my home away from home.

The scenery—its so captivating and refreshing, mesmerizes her. A male hand then reaches into the frame and grabs her hand, placing a flute with champagne in it. She looks up (and we follow) to see the man is non other than John Hu.
Harley: John . . .
John: Ssh. Don’t say a word, my sweet.
John leans in and kisses Harley passionately, silencing her. Then a shot of the boat drifting off into the night, and

Harley jumps out the sound of someone beating at the door.
Phillip (O.C.): Harley! Harley, are you there.
Harley gets up, with her hair tossed everywhere, and heads to the door. She snatches the door open to Phillip, who jumps back at the sight of her. He can see the fury in her eyes.
Phillip: We need to talk.
Phillip barges in without being invited. Harley astonished by this.
Harley: Umm . . . Phillip, I didn’t—
Phillip: What is about you not wanting Zach attend Lincoln Prep? It’s a good school!
Harley: With a lot of spoiled brats!
Phillip: Just say it, Harley! You don’t want Zach to attend Lincoln Prep or have anything to do with my family or me because you’re afraid he’ll end up just me like.

INT. SPAULDING MANOR (HOPE’S SUITE)
The door to the room flings open and Alan Michael rushes into the room, frantic. He starts to scope out the room and Holly trails behind him.
AM: Mom! Mom!
Holly: Alan Michael, be quiet! Do you wanna be heard?
Alan Michael nods understandingly. He peeks in the closet and sees that it has been cleared. He looks to Holly, anxious.
AM: Where is she?
Holly: She couldn’t’ve gone too far.
AM: I wouldn’t put it past her.
The door closes and Alan Michael and Holly turn to see India leaning on the door.
India: Looking for Caroline or should I say Hope?
Alan Michael’s jaw drops. He charges towards India with rage in his eyes, but Holly grabs him, stopping him.
AM: You! I should’ve known it! You—
India: You better settle down. Not if you want me to remain silent.
AM: Remain silent? (trying to break free) That can be arranged!
Holly: (restraining him) Calm down! (to India) Where is Hope?
India: Oh Holly . . . (shaking head) you knew about Hope too? This gets better and better.
Holly: India . . .
India: I wonder how Ed is going to take the news—his main squeeze keeping such big secrets from him. (gloating) Bet he won’t like it.

EXT. BAUER HOME – NIGHT
Ed sits on the porch rocking, and its foggy also. He looks in the night sky.
Mom, Leslie, and Maureen, if you can hear me . . . (tearing up) please help Meta, Bruce, Mike, and Hope find peace.
Ed looks down to see someone standing within the fog.
Hope emerges from the fog looking destroyed, mascara dripping down her eyes as if she’s been crying nonstop.
Ed: Caroline, you all right?
Ed steps off the porch and walks over towards her.
Ed: Do I need to call Alan?
Ed: Did something happen? Did Alan harm you?
Ed: Come with me.
Ed takes her by the arm and tries to take her by the arm, but she jerks away.
Hope: Don’t you even recognize me!
Ed: Caroline, are you sure you’re fine?
Hope: It’s me, Uncle Ed! It is me, Hope!

Harley: Phillip, are we seriously going to do this tonight?
Phillip storms over to the sofa and sits.
Phillip: (patting the sofa) Come sit.
Phillip: I’m not leaving till we talk.
Harley: You sure about that?
Phillip: Harley . . . please.
Harley sighs heavily and complies with his wishes by sitting across from him.
Harley: What Phillip?
Phillip: This has to stop—this tension between you and me.
Harley: There is no tension.
Phillip: There is.
Harley: Phillip! (gets up and points to the door) Goodbye!
Phillip: I said no.
Harley walks over and grabs the phone off the end table and starts to dial.
Phillip: (sighs) Who are you calling?
Harley: Frank. So he can come and whoop your ass and take you to jail.
Phillip crosses over and struggles the phone away from Harley. Then he tosses it across the room and shatters into pieces.
Phillip: Now lets sit and talk like adults.
Harley: Talk like adults? Screw you!
Phillip: Why do you hate me, Harley? Why! Is this because of how I took Zach from you? I thought you’ve forgiven me!
Harley: Well you thought wrong.
Harley grabs her keys. She goes to exit but Phillip grabs her by the arm, restraining her.
Harley: Let me go!
Phillip: No! Not until you listen to me!
Harley tries to pry free of Phillip’s grip.
Harley: My opinion isn’t changing, Phillip! Zach is not going to Lincoln Prep. End of story—
Harley breaks free but falls onto the floor. She holds her arm in pain while Phillip rushes to her side.
Phillip: (worried) Harley, you OK!
Harley kicks Phillip away from her.
Harley: See! See! You see why I don’t want Zach anywhere near you! Your family! You’re a bully, Phillip! You’re sick!
Phillip: Harley, it was an acci—
Harley looks past Phillip to see Zach standing at the bottom of the stairs. Noticing Harley’s reaction, Phillip turns and sees Zach too. Guilt comes over Phillip.
Zach: What’s going on? Mom, are you OK?
Harley: (covering) Nothing. (getting back up) Nothing at all.
Zach: But I heard you two screaming.
Phillip: It was nothing, Zach. Just a simple disagreement. (devastated) I-I’m sorry, Harley. Forgive me. (fighting back tears) Forgive me.
Phillip rushes out of the house. Harley looks on concerned and,

Ed rushes over and opens the door to reveal Holly & Alan Michael.
Holly: Is she here?
Ed points to Hope. Alan Michael rushes in and kneels down next to her. Holly enters and Ed closes the door. They both watch what’s about to happen.
Alan Michael: Caroline! I’m so sorry.
She doesn’t respond.
Alan Michael: I just wanna let you know that you’re not fired. Your job is still intact and I want you to come home with me. OK?
She still doesn’t respond.
Alan Michael: Caroline . . . (tearing up) please forgive me.
She slowly turns to see her son crying. She wipes the tears from his eyes.
Hope: Don’t cry, my sweet baby. I forgive you.
Alan Michael kisses her hand and bury his face in it. Ed is now convinced.
Ed: So I guess it’s true.
Holly and Alan Michael react.
