TERRANCE: This couch does look comfy.
GRETA: It is top of the line….so you said you were friends of Bo Bradys?
STEVE: We are. I know we never met while you lived in Salem. I had this pesky presumed dead thing going on, but Bo and I have been good friends for a long time.
GRETA: What brings you all out here?
STEVE: I was hoping you had some info.
GRETA: About Bo?
TERRANCE: Yes you see we work with him.
GRETA: For the ISA right?
GRETA: Everything okay?
STEVE: Everything is okay. We are tracking him and trying to find him while he is on a secret assignment.
GRETA: Oh…something isn’t adding up..

BOB: Yeah he is…preoccupied. Can I get you something while you wait?
KATSU: I am here on strictly business….don’t tell me he is in the back room…is he having one of his dirty threesomes or foursomes with some crazy couple? He might as well change the name of this place to Orgy Club.
BOB: He is just my boss. I do not ask questions.
Katsu gives Bob a dirty look.
BOB: But between me and you….yes. Yes he is.

Barbara is alone at Paul and Emilys house.

GRETA: It has been some months ago but yes.
STEVE: What did Bo have to say?
GRETA: For being in the ISA you two do not seem to know a lot about Bo.
STEVE: If you would like to call his family back home to verify I know him, you can do so. I am married to his sister Kayla.
GRETA: Oh you are that Steve.
STEVE: Yes the one and only.
TERRANCE: So back to what Bo talked about..
GRETA: Well….(fidgets again) he was asking me about Stefano Dimera.
STEVE: You know Stefano?
GRETA: He and my mother went way back. It’s a long story.
TERRANCE: What did he ask about Stefano?
GRETA: Just if I have seen him but I have not seen Stefano since I was in Salem over a decade ago….thankful for that.
At the Casino

BILLY: Makes me stronger. Shows me how I can control myself now.
PAUL: Good to here.
BILLY: So do you like this city? I am new and still finding my way.

At Triple X strip club:
A guy and a girl walk out from one of the back rooms. Their clothes are disheveled.
KATSU: I take those two messy semi limping people as my cue to go see Derrick.
BOB: Yeah…but enter at your own risk.
Katsu goes to the back and knocks at the door.
DERRICK: Come in!
Katsu enters and immediately turns away.
KATSU: Oh damn man! For the love of god put on some clothes. please.
Derrick puts on some boxers.
KATSU: Come on man. I want you to get serious.
DERRICK: Don’t ever mistake me for not being serious.
KATSU: Well we have some important things to discuss don’t you think..
Jennifer and JJ and 2 movers have moved everything inside her new place.
JENNIFER: Thank you so much, son.
JJ: The least I could do.
JENNIFER: You are growing up to be a gentleman.
JJ: I am glad you think so.
JENNIFER: You have grown a lot the past year.
JJ: I guess I have come a long way or at least I try to.
JENNIFER: I just hope you don’t mind that I have moved close to you again.
JJ: Not at all mom.
JJ: I will be glad to have you around.
At the strip club:
DERRICK: I don’t get you sometimes Katsu.
KATSU: That feeling is mutual. (he points to Derrick still being in boxers)
DERRICK: I am serious though. Sometimes you are one of the coolest guys around and other times you are all stiff with nothing but business on the brain.
KATSU: I get nothing but serious when it comes to business.
DERRICK: I assure you that I do as well. You do not have to worry about me. My head is in the game.
KATSU: I am trying to believe you.
DERRICK: Come here. Let me show you something.
Derrick takes a picture off of the wall and behind it is a safe.
He opens the safe to reveal quite a few stacks of 100 dollar bills.
KATSU: Is this your back room prostitution money?
DERRICK: (chuckles) See there is that cool funny guy. I’m no prostitute. Just the guy spicing up couples lives….but back to business.
KATSU: Yes please let me know how business is.
DERRICK: Well look at all this cash. Our partnership will continue to gain ground.
He gives Katsu one of the wads of 100 dollar bills and then closes the safe.
DERRICK: It is all good... and serious.
Katsu smiles at the wad of cash.
DERRICK: (Grins) We’re growing.
Henry sits beside Barbara.
BARBARA: There you go. Get comfortable love.
HENRY: Start telling me what is up then, love bug.
BARBARA: I don’t want you to be upset. Look at this with an open mind. Paul is restarting up BRO.
HENRY: oh…you are going back to work.
BARBARA: It is a good thing.
Paul arrives home and is surprised to see Henry.
PAUL: If it isn’t my half brother yet Step Father Henry Coleman.
HENRY: Hello Paul. Been a long time it feels like.
PAUL: Maybe not long enough.
HENRY: Probably not long enough. I do not like the sound of this BRO resurrection.
Steve and Terrance shake Gretas hand.
GRETA: I truly do hope you can track down Bo and help with his investigation.
STEVE: Certainly us too.
TERRANCE: If anything suspicious does come up. Call us.
Terrance hands her a card.
STEVE: Especially if that something involves a Dimera.
GRETA: …You got it.
Steve and Terrance exit.
STEVE: I am getting frustrated dude! It feels like nothing we are doing is going anywhere.
TERRANCE: We have to stay calm and positive. Something is bound to come up.
Back inside, Greta stares out the window.
Someone walks into the room “Good Job.”
It is Stefano Dimera himself!
Greta shakes her head.
GRETA: I feel so bad. Like I did the wrong thing.
She puts both hands over her face.
Stefano puts his hand on her shoulder.
STEFANO: No, no you did absolutely perfect my dear daughter, Greta…
Greta looks up nervously.
GRETA: But what about Bo?
STEFANO: Do not worry about Bo Brady. I am sure he can take care of himself.
