Scriptwriter: Melissa Salmons
Hospital - Part 1: Nicole doesn't react well to Dan's idea of where she would be living. This is a joke! Dan - It would be temporary. Nicole - I can't live with Victor for 5 mins. Dan knows but Maggie and Brady will be there to run interference. The place is like a fortress. There is no way EJ could just show up and harass you. Wasn't that the whole point of moving? Nicole - Yeah but this is extreme. There's got to be another option. Please, can't you think of anywhere else I could live. Dan - It's only going to be a few days until we find ... Nicole - How long do you think it's going to take for Victor to try and kill me or for me to try and kill him. We have practice, one of us might actually succeed this time. Dan - You both have mellowed since ... Nicole - Mellowed? I'm really not mellowed. I'm ... Dan - You need to calm down. Nicole - Look at me, I'm not even living there and I'm already stressed out. This can not be good for the baby. I'm sorry that I'm being such a pain but living with Victor is not an option. Anywhere than there would be better. Anywhere ... Jen walks up - Then come live with me.
Brady Pub - Part 1: Gabi and Rafe are having breakfast together. They share typical brother / sister banter. Gabi - What's up with you? How come you're in such a good mood? Rafe recalls Sami telling her Grandma that she's not with EJ. Rafe replies - Nothin', just the way I like it.
Sami's apt - Part 1: Sami opens the door to EJ. How was the waterpark? EJ wants to reminsce, Sami tells him it's been a busy morning. My life is exactly the same as the last time you saw me. You, were you were going to tell me you were a DiMera? EJ - It's not like it's some deep, dark secret. Sami - No, but you failed to include it in conversation. Hey Sami, guess what, I'm still part of that degenerate family I thought I'd shed. EJ - The only family I'm part of is this family. Sami - Your father, who's not dead btw, he's Satan on a stick and he's insanely obsessed with his children and his grandchildren. Have I mentioned that he's not dead. EJ - He's gone, alright. Even if he wasn't gone I don't want anything to do with him. Sami - But that's not how Stefano operates; it's not your choice. EJ - Would you rather I killed him? Sami - No but I wish you wouldn't lie to me about it. EJ - I didn't lie to you. Sami - I know. He asks her what's wrong when she turns away. Sami's going to get the kids because they got him something at the waterpark. EJ - Don't. Sami - You don't want to see them. He does but he'd like to spend a little time with their mother first. Sami makes a face. EJ - What! I haven't been able to do anything right since I walked in the door. Sami - You're being silly. EJ - What is wrong?
Police station - Part 1: Bo is in the office going through Nick's file. Hope knocks on the door and asks him if he's ready for the parole board hearing. Bo - After 4 years you'd think I'd forget some of the details but after reading the first sentence of my report it all came back to me like a bad nightmare. Hope - It's hard to beleive it was Nick. Even then it didn't seem real. When I see how far he's come now ... she pauses ... I know you haven't seen him as much as I have but I'm telling you Brady, he's a completely different kid. He's the kid we all loved. Don't you think he really deserves a chance to start over.
Prison visiting room: Nick - Mom, we're not there yet. A lot of things could keep me from getting this parole. Jessica - Just one thing. One person. Melanie. Nick - It's not up to her. Jessica - If she didn't contest it, then it would make a big difference. We should talk to Aunt Maggie. Nick - I'm not going to bother her. Maggie comes in - It's no bother Nick. Nick - You came. Maggie - Of course I did. Jessica - Then you can speak to Melanie. Maggie - I'm sorry Jessica. I just can't do that. Jessica - I know that Melanie is your granddaughter and I'm really sorry for everything that she went through but you could talk to her. Nick - Mom, why don't you go and see if Bo and Hope are here. Jessica - Of course. You can talk to Aunt Maggie. She leaves. Nick - Sorry about that. She hasn't been able to visit me much so she's trying hard, maybe too hard. Maggie - I understand. I'd do the same thing if I were in her shoes. Nick - It's great of you to come. Maggie - I wouldn't have missed it. Nick - Even if you don't know what side to be on? Maybe you do. Maggie takes his hand - I know how much better you've gotten. Nick - You can tell? Maggie - Every month, every week, I can see you get stronger and more clear. I'm so very proud of you Nick. Nick - I wouldn't go that far. Maggie - I've seen a lot of people battle their demons over the years but you, you are fearless facing yours down. Nick - It was the only way, right? Maggie - Yes. Nick - Look, Melanie has every right to want me locked up. I get that. And I would never ask you to try and change her mind. Maggie - I can't step in. It doesn't mean that I don't want the very best for you. Nick - I know. You always have. You never turned your back on me even when I didn't make it easy. Maggie cries - It was always easy to love you.
Chad's place - Part 1: Chad tells Mel that it says she has to get her letter notarized. Mel - Where are my supposed to find a Notary? Chad - Don't worry about it. I'll take care of this part. Just write your letter. We still have time. Chad leaves. Mel continues writing - I know what I'm asking means that Nick will have to stay in prison for another 18 months. She puts the pen down, reads the letter, puts it down and leaves.
Brady Pub - Part 2: Rafe - No it's not better money, it's a job title but next year I'll be up for a promotion. Gabi - Let's go celebrate. Chez Rouge on you! Rafe - Oh great, you're going to reduce me to a checkbook. Gabi - Okay, on me. I still have some modelling money left. Rafe - I was kidding. Gabi - No. Let's spend it all on you. I'm so happy that you're sticking around. Rafe - You thought I was going somewhere? No, not after what happened to you. Gabi - Don't worry about me, I'm fine. Rafe - Are you sure? Gabi - Yeah. It's my turn to worry about you. Rafe - Don't. Gabi - I can't help it. Now that Carrie's gone ... Rafe - Don't worry about me. Gabi - Being in that loft is not good for you, is it? Rafe - I like it. Gabi - Doesn't everything remind you of Sami though? Rafe - Only the mess actually. No, seriously, trust me. I am over her. Believe it. He gets a text. Gabi teases - Official business just in the nick of time. Rafe - It's about my promotion. I have to go sign some paperwork. He leaves money for breakfast. You let me know your class schedule and we'll make plans for Chez Rouge. He kisses her on the cheek and leaves. Gabi goes up to pay the bill. Melanie comes in - There you are. Why haven't you been returning my phone calls. Gabi - My phone was off. Mel - And yesterday? Gabi - I don't know. Mel - It's okay. I'm just glad I found you because you are the only one who can help me.
Chad's place - Part 2: Chad comes in. You won't believe it, I found a notary right around the corner. He realises Melanie is gone. He sees the unfinished letter on the desk. He checks the other room to see if she's there. He calls her cell but it rings inside the apt. Where did she go?
Brady Pub - Part 3: Mel - So Nick's been in prison ever since. I spoke at his trial, that's why he got a lighter sentence but I didn't think he'd be out this fast. I could stop it. Gabi - Do you want to? Mel - I don't know. I started writing the letter telling them I wasn't ready to have Nick on the streets but I read it ... it felt wrong. Gabi - Mel, I'm sorry, I have to go. Mel - You're joking right? Gabi - I'm no help to you. Mel - You're the only person that can help me. Gabi - That's not true. Mel - You don't know Nick. You're the only person that doesn't have some opinion about what I should do. Also you're the only one I know who's been through what I have. You know what it feels like to be stalked. Gabi recalls Chad confronting her about there never being any stalker. Gabi - I'm sorry, I can't help you.
Hospital - Part 2: Jen - I'm really glad that I ran into you because I just came from seeing my Aunt Maggie and she told me that EJ is harassing you. Is that true? Nicole - Yeah. Jen - He is so disgusting that he would go after a pregnant woman. I promise you he wouldn't get past my front door. Dan - That is so kind of you. Nicole - You can't do this Jennifer. Jen - Yes I can. Nicole - You don't even like me. Jen - You're growing on me and it's a big house. Nicole - You're very sweet. Jen - I saw you apologising to Abe. Nicole - That was nothing. It was just words; word are easy. Jen - No, not when you're genuinely sorry and I feel so bad about what happened the other day when you brought me flowers for Jack. Nicole - That's what people do. You don't owe me for that. Jen - I wasn't kind and I wasn't warm to you. I wasn't welcoming. Nicole - You were grieving and you still are. You certainly don't need a stranger living in your house. Jen - Maybe I do. Maybe I need someone in my house who isn't going to ask me how I am every 2 mins. The truth is my house is empty. My daughter's so busy, she's not even there. So you know what, maybe you'll be helping me. Dan - You can help each other. Sounds like a win-win. Nicole - Yeah, like an offer I can't refuse.
Sami's apt - Part 2: Sami - Don't be such a guy. EJ - What else would you like me to be? Sami - I told you already I'm not ready for a relationship. EJ - That's fine. I understand. Sami - I have things I have to sort out. EJ - Samantha, I get the message. Sami - Really 'cause I don't think you do 'cause there's still that handsy stuff. EJ - Handsy stuff? Sam - Yeah. EJ - Well I thought you wouldn't mind the handsy stuff because you said you liked me. Sami - I do but Lucas's stuff just got out of my apartment, my divorce with Rafe is 6 months old, I feel like a ping pong ball. And I have to go see a lawyer about the charges. EJ - I can help you with that. Sami - You're the reason I was obstructing justice. I don't think you should be on my defence team. EJ - Good point. Let me help you get a lawyer then I can consult them on the strategy. Sami - I can do this. EJ - It was me who got you into all of that wonderful trouble. Sami - I can handle getting myself out of trouble. There is something you can do. I have to go and see the lawyer and my babysitter just cancelled on me so I was wondering if you can stay and watch the kids. Lucas is going to pick up Allie but it would help me a lot if you can stay. EJ - Of course I can stay and then maybe in the next days, weeks, you can spend a little bit of time sorting through these feelings of yours and then maybe you can sort that laundry of yours. Sami - There's always more laundry to be done. I'm not saying no but I'm not saying yes either. I'm a mess and I don't know how this is going to turn out but I have to go see that lawyer. She leaves.
Hospital - Part 3: Nicole apologises. I've really got to find a ladies room. I'll be in touch Jennifer. She leaves. Dan - That was very generous. Jen - It's true, the house is too big right now. Dan - Still Nicole. Jen - I know, she didn't really seem too thrilled with the offer, did she? Dan - Neither did you. Jen - I really believe she's going to grow on me. Dan - Why? Jen - Abe and I were talking and we both got a very big lesson this summer on life is too short. And I don't have time to be small. This is a way to help Maggie and Victor and Nicole. Nicole goes into an empty patient room, picks up a pillow, covers her face and screams. She rubs her stomach. I'm sorry honey, this was not the plan. Life lesson #1: Do-gooders always screw everything up. Damn it. Jen - Maggie told me you had asked them to take Nicole in. Dan - I didn't want it to be a big deal. I guess Victor really wasn't in love with the idea. Jen - Oh no, not at all. Dan gets a call from Chad asking if Melanie is with him. No, why. Chad - She disappeared. I'm worried about her.
Hearing - Part 1: Bo - Mr. Fallon used a series of threatening notes to convince Miss Jonas that she had somehow killed Trent Robbins. He then convinced her that he was her protector and that she had to leave town with him. The Salem PD received a tip that they were at the Airport Motel. When we arrived there, she had gone off the balcony and I was able to pull her to safety but Mr. Fallon stated it was an accident. My partner then arrested Mr. Fallon for kidnapping and the murder of Trent Robbins.
Sami's apt - Part 3: EJ comes out of the kids room saying no cheating. He answers the door. It's Lucas. Wait for your daddy to come back, he'll show you to cheat, isn't that right? What are you doing here, settling in? EJ - No, I'm just enjoying some time with my family. Lucas - You don't waste any time do you? EJ - Don't be a twit Lucas. Lucas - Just tell Sami I'm here to pick up Allie. EJ - Actually Samatha's at a meeting. I'm looking after the children. Lucas - Sami left my little girl with you!
Police station - Part 2: Sami is in the office - She thanks her lawyer for meeting her here. What is going on? I don't understand what's happening. I didn't obstruct justice. He was innocent so I was actually helping justice. What's the deal? She replies - Being the police commissioner's daughter is making the deal a little harder. Sami - So it's like a Lindsay Lohan kind of thing - they're making an example out of me? That's so unfair. Is there anything we can do to get the charges dropped? Lawyer - If the arresting officer put in a good word ... Sami recalls trying to escape from Rafe. Sami - Yeah, I'll work on it. The lawyer tells Sami she'll be in touch. She leaves. Sami - OMG, I'm so screwed. Rafe walks in - What have you done now? Sami - Hey Rafe. Rafe - Alright, what's wrong? Sami - Nothing. How's Gabi doing? Rafe - What? Sami - Well I heard about what happened. Is she okay? Did she see a doctor. Rafe - Yeah. Sami - And she's really okay? Rafe - I can't tell. She acts all bubbly. She tells me everything is fine but I don't know. Sami - Well maybe I could talk to her. Rafe - What! Sami - You're her big brother brother. She wants you to think she's all grown up. Maybe if she talks to a woman, she'll open up. Rafe - Maybe, thanks.
HTS - Part 1: Dan and Chad are walking through the square. Chad - I didn't mean to scare you. I don't think anyone took Melanie. Dan - Just that you're worried. Chad - Yeah. She left her phone and took off. Dan - Why don't I check the prison, maybe she decided to testify in person. Chad - Great, I'm coming with you. Dan - No, why don't you check every other place. Maybe she went to get coffee or something else. I will call you if I find her.
Hearing - Part 2: Jessica - Nick was always a good loving kid but he was shy, very shy. I think that's why when he found friends and felt like he belonged he fell so hard for Melanie. And if he hadn't been given those drugs I know in my heart none of us would be sitting here her today. Outside the hearing room Bo asks - Has anyone heard from Melanie? Maggie - No, we haven't seen her. Hope - She might have sent a letter unless she decided not to weigh in at all. Do you think she'd be okay with letting Nick go free?
Brady Pub - Part 4: Gabi - This thing with Nick sounds totally different. Mel - But it's not. It's close kind of. My Dad doesn't want Nick to get out of jail ever and Chad's not far behind him. And Maggie's stuck in the middle because the Horton's are upset with her for not supporting Nick 100% because she doesn't want to upset me. Gabi - Please stop. Mel - Okay, I'm sorry. If it was you, what would you do if it was Andrew. Gabi - I'm sorry I ever met him. Mel - Me too obviously. But if he lived and he went to rehab and he got better and all these people that you love and care about said he got better too, do you give him a second chance? I mean who knows what made the guy crack in the first place; maybe it will never happen again. Gabi - I don't know. Mel - Are you really not going to help me? Gabi - Honestly, I don't know what to say. I don't have a good perspective. Mel - Yeah you do. You're smart, you're grounded, you're one of the best friends I've ever had ... Gabi - Please stop. There's something that you need to know.
Hospital - Part 4: Nicole comes back to the nurse's station area and sees Jen. Hey, where's Daniel? Jen - He got a call. He had to leave. Nicole - Are you waiting here for him? Jen - No I was waiting for you. I thought we could go to the hotel and get all your stuff. Nicole - Now? Jen - Yeah, if you're not too busy. Nicole - No, yes, this is great. Let's get my stuff roomie! They leave.
Hearing - Part 3: Hope - I've been watching Nick pull himself up from the mess he's made. There was some pretty, rough ugly months in there, that's for sure but then you could see the turn, the point where with every step he made, everytime he took responsibility, he was more together. 10 months ago I felt like the smart, sweet guy we had all known had come back. PB Member - Excuse me, Miss Brady, please remind us, what is your relationship to the prisoner. Hope - It's Detective Brady. Nick and I are cousins. I'm also the one who placed him under arrest for the kidnapping of Melanie Jonas. I didn't hesitate then and I would not hesitate now if I believed that Nick Fallon posed the slightest risk to society. I'm here today because I can say without any reservations whatsoever that Nick Fallon is ready to be released.
Brady Pub - Part 5: Mel - Okay. What do you need to tell me? Just as Gabi starts to speak Chad comes in. I've been looking everywhere for you. He looks at Gabi - What are you doing here? Gabi - Melanie surprised me at breakfast. Mel - I was looking for Gabi. Chad - Right now, why? Mel - The letter thing, it just doesn't feel right or maybe it does and I just feel guilty. Gabi's the only person who kind of knows what I'm going through right now. Chad - That's not true. Gabi - Right. And I was just about to tell her ... Chad - To write the letter which is what you should be thinking about right now. Gabi - Right. Mel - So you think I should make sure Nick stays in prison. Gabi - I think you deserve to be safe.
Hearing - Part 4: When Hope comes out of the room Jessica stands up - How did it go? Hope - I got their attention. I think it made a difference that I'm a cop. Jessica - I'm sure it did. I'm the mother, who listens to that? Anybody's mother would show up? Bo - You'd be surprised. Maggie - I'm sure you helped. Hope - Just hope that between us we said enough to help Nick. Dan walks in - You helped Nick. Are you kidding me!
Police station - Part 3: Rafe - So what are you doing here? Sami - Just here to meet the lawyer about my case. Rafe - Oh yeah. Did they say anything about getting those charges dropped? Sami - Not much. Her lawyer comes back. I left a file ... She sees Rafe. Oh good, you're here to vouch for Sami. Rafe - What's that? Sami - No he's not. We were just talking about some other stuff. The lawyer leaves. Rafe - What was that all about? Sami - Nothing. Rafe - Nothing. You want me to put in a good word for you at the trial, don't you? Sami - No, my lawyer does. Obviously it would help if you told the court that I had been cooperative. Rafe - You tried to run. Sami - I also shot someone to save your life. Rafe - Wow. That's exactly why you were trying to be nice to me; trying to be so helpful with my sister, isn't it? Sami - No. I like your sister. Rafe - Some things never change. Always looking out for your own backside. He walks out. Sami follows - Rafe, are you serious!
Hearing - Part 4: PB Member to Nick - We have testimonials from several members of your family who couldn't be here today, the warden, prison psychiatrist. Mr Fallon, do you have any statement you'd like to make before we rule. Nick - Yes sir. I know that my whole family wants to blame what I did on the drugs but I'm the one who did the drugs, who let it get out of hand, who didn't get help when I should have. That's all on me and I do take responsibility, 100% responsibility for that. I fell down a very deep hole and I will not go back there again. I've had a lot of breaks in life, I want to give back. I owe it to people I've hurt, all the people who showed up today, who believe in me and I'm going to make it up to them whether it's out there or it's behind bars. Outside the room - Bo - Hey Doc, let's go get some coffee. Dan - I'm going to wait here until Melanie's done testifying. Bo - Testifying? Dan - Well she's here, isn't she? Hope - We haven't seen her. Dan - She started a letter, didn't finish it so I just assumed that she ... nobody's seen her since ... if she's not here ...
Sami's apt - Part 4: EJ comes out of the kids room - She's just getting her backpack. Lucas - Sami should have had her ready to leave. EJ - She's playing. She's having a good time. Don't be so petty. Lucas - Petty? Petty is when I sue Sami for full custody of Allie and I win. EJ - Really? You'd take her away from Johnny and Sydney? Lucas - They're the only reason she's still here now. EJ - Oh, good for you. Lucas - What was that? EJ - I really appreciate your sacrifice. Lucas - Just spit it out man. What are you trying to say? EJ - Well we both know that Allie being with Samantha is the only reason you have to come sniffing around. Lucas - I don't need an excuse to sniff around Sami. EJ scoffs - There's an image. Lucas - No, I'm all done with her. She's all yours now. She's your problem, not mine. EJ - I don't consider her to be a problem. Lucas - Oh yeah, that's right. I forgot. You're her saviour right? For now you are but I wouldn't get too comfortable if I were you. EJ - Oh so you're going to lick your wounds and come back to fight another day, are you? Lucas - No, I'm not coming back but you won't last either. I mean, haven't you learned yet. Sami always wants what she can't have. I give you a week, a month maybe. By Thanksgiving she'll be done with you and she'll move on to her next challenge.
HTS - Part 2: Sami catches up to Rafe at the gates of the square. Wait! Rafe - It's not going to work. Sami - What? Rafe - Whatever it is you're trying to pull. Sami - For the record I actually like Gabi and I would like to help her. Rafe - Let me guess and you really want my help. Sami - The two are mutually exclusive Rafe. I mean even if you threw me in jail I'd still want to help Gabi. Rafe - I really wish I could believe that. Sami - When did you decide that I'd become a total monster Rafe? That I can't help anybody but myself? Actually I'm pretty sure that's how I got into trouble, by helping someone else. Rafe - I'm not going to lie to the DA so don't ask me to. He walks away - Sami calls out - I wouldn't dream of it. She puts her purse down as some thug skulks around behind her. She sees the guy grab her purse and grabs it too. Hey give it back. She struggles with him and screams and yanks her purse away, turns to run and plows right into Rafe sending them both crashing too the ground. She's on top of him and they end up practically lip to lip.
Alice's house: Jen rolls the suitcase in - Come in. Nicole - Wow, this is homey. Jen - It's not a mansion but it's not a hotel. I think it's a step up. Nicole - Certainly a step. Jen - There's a guest room at the top of the stairs on the right hand side. That can be your room. Nicole - Thank you. I promise that I will not overstay my welcome. This is really kind of you. Jen - You can thank Maggie because she's the reason I knew you needed a place. Nicole - She only helped me because of Daniel. Jen - Right, I understand. Nicole - Did he tell you about us? Jen - A bit. Nicole - I guess I can clarify. Things got intense with us pretty quickly. He saved my baby's life. That's a pretty great way to start, wouldn't you say? Nicole heads upstairs. Jen goes into the living room and appears to digest this latest piece of information.
Hearing - Part 5: Bo comes out of the room and tells everyone that the board is deliberating. (Dan isn't there). Nick seems to think it went well. Hope - I've got a good feeling about this. Bo - I've got to get back to the station. I'll see you at home. They kiss. He leaves. Jessica is going to call her mother. Dan returns - Chad's not picking up either. Maggie - Where do you think Melanie would go? Dan - Who knows? Maggie - Well maybe she wanted to get as far away from this decision as possible. Inside - PB Member - We're back on the record in the matter prisoner number 01673 Nicholas Fallon application for parole. The full board has voted and come to a unanimous decison. The door opens. The guard says - You can't just bust in here. Mel - Yes I can. P BMember - Who is this? Mel - I'm Melanie Jonas and I need to make a statement.
