Will is at the coffeehouse.

EJ: William. I have a job for you
Will: Hello. Are you having me followed?
EJ: Uh, I was told you went on a coffee run. By the way, my assistant does not get coffee.
Will: Okay, what do you want me to do then?
EJ: I need you to keep an eye on Nicole.
Will: Oh, what kind of eye?
EJ: Well, I need to know exactly where she is, I need to know what she's doing, and I need to know whom she is doing it with, and, in particular, I need to know if she's making any plans to leave Salem.
Will: Sounds like a full-time job.
EJ: It is a full-time job.
Will: What about my school?
EJ: I think you'll have to take a leave of absence.

Marlena walks in.

Marlena: I have an idea. Why don't you and your job take a leave of absence.

EJ: Do you allow your grandmother to resign your jobs for you?
Marlena: I just heard you order Will not to go to classes.
Will: Grandma, look, I can handle this.
Marlena: That was an order, wasn't it?
EJ: I don't say please or thank you to people who work for me. You still work for me, don't you, Will?
Will: Yes, I do.
Marlena: And his education is of primary importance
EJ: We will schedule around your classes.
Will: Okay. Great, thanks.
EJ: Perfect. See? I do have William's best interests at heart. In fact, frankly. I'm beginning to think I'm the only person who does.
Marlena: I beg your pardon.
EJ: From my perspective, I think I'm the only person who's really allowing Willaim to have the autonomy and the freedom that he needs to be himself.
Marlena: But we all know that your perspective is famously warped. Why don't you tell me what you mean?
EJ: Oh, Dr. Evans, I think you know exactly what I'm talking about, don't you?

*

Marlena: Alright, Mr. Mayor, what is it you think I know?
Will: Grandma, Grandma, I'm fine, okay? I'm okay with how he treats me, and if I'm not, I can handle it myself like an adult.
Marlena: Okay.
Will: Okay. Okay.
Marlena: Okay.
Will: Great, I'm going to get some coffee. Do you want your regular?
Marlena: Please, my dear.
Will: Okay. Anything for you?
EJ: Nothing for me.
Will: Okay. And you're welcome.
Marlena: Okay.

Will leaves

EJ: Marlena, you may find this difficult to believe, but I care about William very much.
Marlena: What I find easy to believe is you care about yourself very much.
EJ: I think of him as being a little bit like a stepson. And I really only have his best interests at heart.
Marlena: But you best interest is different form the rest of the world's.
EJ: Let me put it to you this way. I want William to have the opportunity to be who he is without any fear of judgment.
Marlena: And who decides that? Do you or does he?
EJ: I think that you and I both know what we're talking about. Now if I was going to take advantage of that situation, I already would have done it. But I haven't and I won't.
Marlena: You know I hate the fact that Will's working for you. But he's a grown-up. He made his chouce. And I have no choice but to give you the benefit of the doubt.
EJ: Thank you.
Marlena: You're welcome. He's my flesh and blood. Watch your step.

EJ leaves.

Will brings the coffee and sits down with Marlena.

Will: Scared him off, huh?
Marlena: Did my best.
Will: Grandma, you're not gonna do that again, are you?
Marlena: No. You made yourself pretty clear. I'm sorry if I embarrassed you.
Will: I don't know why people think they can just butt into my life. They forget that I've taken care of my mom and myself since I was a little kid.
Marlena: Tragically, that's true. Look, if it seems like I'm butting in, it's just because I'm...
Both: Concerned.
Will: I know.
Marlena: I know you know. I thought a lot about you since we talked since we talked.
Will: Yeah, me too.
Marlena: I think maybe I'm feeling a little overprotective.
Will: I don't need protecting.
Marlena: You're working for EJ DiMera. Please. Honey... Are you working for him because he knows what you told me?
Will: Grandma, listen, I know you only want what's best for me.
Marlena: Mm-hmm.
Will: Right now, I think that is to, with all due respect, back off and just give me a little space.

*

Will: Okay, I've been around EJ for most of my life. And I understand that there are risks. But I made the decision that it's advantageous to me to take those risks.
Marlena: And I'm treating you like a 12-year-old.
Will: You said it.
Marlena: Yeah, well, I'm sorry.
Will: It's okay. I'm sorry. I'm rude. You know, I'm not trying to hurt your feelings, and, I mean, I think we both know that you're the only person I can rely on. And I don't want that to change.
Marlena: I don't want that to change either. You know, I did get a little bit concerned when you raced off the other night.
Will: Yeah, I got kind of trapped into going to a club with Gabi.
Marlena: Oh.
Will: But really I was frustrated and I felt a little claustrophobic, because I felt like people were lining up to tell me how to live my life. You know, Grandma Kate, Dad, EJ, Sonny.
Marlena: Me?
Will: Well, that's different. But what I'm trying to say is that when people are telling you how you should be comfortable with who you are, it makes it hard to be comfortable with who you are. Really hard.
Marlena: Well put. Wow.

*

Marlena: All righty, I get it. This is your journey. You'd like to go it your own way.
Will: Yeah.
Marlena: But I'm always going to remind you that I love and I support you. No matter what.
Will: Even if I'm a gay man?
Marlena: No matter what.
Will: Did you notice? I said I'm gay. See you.
Marlena: Yeah.

Will leaves.

Marlena: I noticed.

when people are telling you how you should be comfortable with who you are, it makes it hard to be comfortable with who you are. Really hard

This is so AWESOME ♥
