Days of Our Lives Quotes

Gabi: So, do you think it's a good idea?
Kate: Not good... fabulous.
Gabi: You really like it?
Kate: What's not to love about a lifestyle coaching business?
Gabi: Plus image enhancement.
Kate: That's what makes it so unique. In fact, I'm gonna talk to Chad and see if he wants to bring DImera on board.
Gabi: Um, well, uh, you know, I'm not actually looking for an investment. I wanted your opinion more than anything and, um, I just don't think bringing Chad in is necessary.
Kate: Gabi, I know that you still have feelings for Chad but that doesn't mean we can't do business with him.
Gabi: Well, whatever I feel about Chad is over. I mean, he's committed to his family. And like I told Abigail, I want them to be happy.
Kate: Sweetie, that's very noble of you. It really is. But personally, I think that I couldn't give up going after a man the heart wanted. I don't think I could just listen to what the brain is telling me.

Your concern for me is overwhelming. Or...and this is just off the top of my head...maybe you're playing me too.
