Jennifer: All right. Here it goes.
Jennifer: Sorry. Does it sting?
Patrick: No, no, it's just cold.
Jennifer: Well, I just don't want it to get infected, you know? I'm feeling guilty enough as it is.
Patrick: Not your fault.
Jennifer: Yeah, right. You risk your life to get my bearer bonds back, and the thieves retaliate by beating you half to death. You know, I still think that we should call the police and report this.
Patrick: No way. Look, I -- I couldn't identify them if I tried. It was way too dark.
Jennifer: All right, well, why don't we call my cousin hope and see if any other incidents have happened tonight --
Patrick: No, no.
Jennifer: What? Why not, Patrick?
Patrick: Look, I -- I won't allow you to put yourself at risk. Like I said, if this -- if this story hits the media and people find out that you have inherited all this money from your grandmother --
Jennifer: Yeah, but the bonds, they're locked up safely now.
Patrick: No, but it's still going to make you a target for every con man or kidnapper. Who knows? I think you need to think about Abby and the baby.
Jennifer: Yeah, yeah. You know what? You're right. I-I get your point. That's probably exactly what Jack would have said to me.
Patrick: So, uh, the due date, it's -- it's coming up, huh?
Jennifer: Yeah. Yeah, and I have -- I have so much to do. You know, I have -- I have to check the air conditioning vents, 'cause there might be mold in them, and the floor -- you know, I have to polish the floor. I can't remember the last time I've polished that floor in the nursery.
Patrick: Look, why don't you call my mom? That's what you pay her for.
Jennifer: No. Bonnie's wonderful, and she has helped me so much, but the baby's room I want to get ready by myself.
Patrick: You should not be polishing floors.
Jennifer: You know what, Patrick? I'm not an invalid, okay?
Jennifer: My foot is asle-- oh! Oh.
Celeste: "Hi, Mom. Theo had a fussy night, and we're both sleeping in. Could you do me a favor and... put up a few decorations?" All right. "Bonnie left some things in a shopping bag on the sofa." Oh, dear, Bonnie. What were you thinking? Darling, this will only remind everyone of Cassie's death. No. Let's see here. I'm just going to put up a few streamers and a few balloons instead. Oh, how I wish Abraham could be here for his son's first birthday. Maybe he can. [Gasps] No, no. No, this can't be.
Abe: [Chuckles] Hey, sleepyhead.
Abe: You know what the day today is?
Lexie: Mm. Um... uh, our wedding anniversary?
Abe: Ha ha ha ha. No.
Lexie: No? Um, Christmas?
Abe: Ha ha. No.
Lexie: Our son's 3 months old.
Abe: Yeah, that's it exactly. So how do you want to celebrate?
Lexie: How about a picnic in the park?
Abe: You got it. All right.
Lexie: Why are you holding your hand behind your back?
Abe: Oh, uh...
Abe: [Makes kissing sounds] Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Abe: Hey. You think he's going to like this?
Lexie: He'll love it.
Abe: Yeah. Well, it doesn't compare to what I'm going to get him for his first birthday.
Lexie: What? Tell me.
Abe: You'll just have to wait and see. Ha ha ha ha.
Abe: The package. I arranged to have it delivered today. If Lexie opens it... I could lose her forever.
Man: Tek. This just arrived addressed to Alexandra carver in care of the precinct.
Tek: Why would it be sent here?
Man: It's been over eight months since commander carver was killed.
Tek: I'm going to check this out.
Man: Do you think I should have this scanned?
Tek: I don't believe it. This box was sent to Lexie by her husband right before he died.
Roman: It always happens this way when somebody new is coming to the island.
Marlena: Somebody new?
Roman: I'm afraid so. And that means that somebody else in Salem is about to die.
Marlena: [Gasps] Oh. No.
Roman: Doc, doc, take it easy. Take it easy.
Marlena: Oh, my gosh.
Roman: No, it's okay. It's all right, I promise.
Marlena: It isn't all right. It isn't okay. Somebody in Salem is going to die. We've got to stop it.
Roman: Marlena, you know these people don't actually die. They come here, just like you and I do.
Marlena: The suffering is horrible... for the victims as well as their families. Roman... what can we do?
Roman: Nothing, I'm afraid.
Marlena: No, there must be something.
Roman: Once the noise begins, it's just a matter of time. Another structure appears overnight, just kind of like a -- like a mushroom after a rainstorm. Then a little later, the victim shows up.
Marlena: This is insane.
Roman: Yes. But we are not. Now listen to me -- it is very, very important that we stick together, that we help each other keep sane.
Marlena: It must be Stefano. Who else would do this? I mean, who else would hold us captive, control our lives? We have to stop him.
Roman: We will.
Marlena: Good. What's the plan?
Roman: For starters, Abe and I are looking at ways to contact the outside world. We're also putting together clues, such as the missing pictures in this penthouse. And we're exploring the compound, trying to find out who's behind this and why.
Marlena: What can I do?
Roman: Same as the rest of us. We stay healthy, we make sure we get our sleep, and we eat. Which reminds me -- you must be starved. How about I fix you some breakfast?
Marlena: No, no, no, no. I can do that.
Roman: Are you sure about that?
Marlena: Oh. Yeah. Well, I'll make something really simple. Keep my mind off things.
Roman: Okay. Doc.
Roman: We are going to find a way out of here sooner or later.
Marlena: Oh, I know. It's the people in Salem I'm worried about.
Patrick: Look, uh, if you want your floors polished, I'll do it.
Jennifer: Thank you. But there is no reason for me to sit around like a beached whale when there are so many things I need to get done.
Patrick: There is every reason.
Jennifer: Patrick, will you let go, please?
Patrick: Jennifer, come on, don't fight me on this. Put your feet up.
Jennifer: No, I will not put my feet up.
Patrick: Do I have to call Dr. Carver and tell her that you're overdoing it? And aren't you supposed to go to Theo’s first birthday today?
Jennifer: You know, that's not for hours.
Patrick: Well, you don't want to overexert yourself, okay? Why risk another round of premature labor? Now, I think the best thing that you could do for your baby --
Jennifer: You know, Patrick, don't lecture me, all right? Are you a parent? Are you the one who has been carrying this baby around for months? Are you the father? No. So butt out.
Celeste: This has never happened before. Please... please lead me to my son-in-law. Oh, dear God. What's happened to Abraham? Why can't I contact his spirit?
Abe: [Thinking] Lexie, my darling, I hope you take these words to heart. You know that I will love you always. Your husband and partner for life, Abe. Not only does she think I'm dead... I've given her my blessing to move on. Damn it. Damn it. I got to get off this island before it's too late.
Tek: Carver's little boy is celebrating his first birthday today. Maybe Abe prearranged to have a gift delivered.
Man: Or maybe the box contains information about the Colin Murphy murder investigation.
Tek: The case Abe was working on right before he died. You could be right. There's only one way to find out.
Patrick: Jen, I'm sorry.
Jennifer: No, this is my baby. It is mine and Jack’s. Now let go of me.
Patrick: Look, I didn't mean to upset you. Just breathe or --
Jennifer: Don't patronize me.
Patrick: You're right, Jennifer. I've never been a father. I've just -- I feel protective of you and your baby. But you're the one doing all the hard work. And I really don't know what I'm talking about. I mean, it's been such a long time since my mom went through this.
Jennifer: Went through what?
Patrick: Well, when my mom was pregnant with Mimi, I was still a kid and my dad was always on the road, so I guess I felt like I had to be the man of the family. Trying to tell a pregnant woman what to do -- I should know better by now.
Jennifer: Yeah. Pregnant women can be very, very dangerous.
Patrick: Yeah, especially my mom. Can you imagine? She's usually working two or three jobs. And then one Saturday, she decided to mow the lawn. She started hemorrhaging.
Jennifer: Oh, my gosh.
Patrick: Yeah, I ran to the neighbor. This guy was, like, 90 years old, but between the two of us, we managed to get her to the hospital. She might've lost my sister otherwise. She might not have made it herself.
Jennifer: So that -- that's why you know all about the hot water bottles and all the other stuff.
Patrick: I just want you to have a healthy baby, Jennifer, especially after losing so much. If I got too bossy just now, it's because... I care about you, okay? Well, I'm gonna go to my place and put on a shirt.
Jennifer: Patrick, just wait. I'm, uh, I'm really sorry.
Patrick: Don't be.
Jennifer: It's just that I am -- I am huge, and I am uncomfortable. And I miss my husband so much, and I'm so scared.
Patrick: Oh, Jen --
Jennifer: I mean, I'm a Horton, you know? I'm supposed to thrive in times of crisis. I can't afford to feel sorry for myself and helpless right now. I mean, how am I gonna raise a child without Jack? Patrick, he was the love of my life, and now he's gone.
Lexie: Great little boy... uh-huh.
Celeste: Ah! There's my angel. Ha ha ha ha. Happy birthday, darling.
Lexie: Is something wrong, Mom?
Celeste: No, not at all. You get more handsome every time I see you, Theodore.
Lexie: Uh, it looks as though you've been consulting your cards again.
Celeste: Well, I wasn't going to mention it, Alexandra, but... well, yeah, you know, I was thinking about Abraham.
Lexie: Oh, me too. Theo saw a picture of his father a little while ago, and he said "Da-Da."
Lexie: Can you believe it?
Celeste: Well, babies are very sensitive.
Celeste: Darling, perhaps I can use him as a touchstone.
Lexie: A what?
Celeste: You know, to contact Abraham’s spirit. Oh, I'm sure he would want to be present for his son's first birthday, wouldn't he, darling? Yes.
Lexie: Oh, Mom, no, no. No.
Celeste: All right, darling, then as you wish. So tell me, who is coming to the party?
Lexie: Uh, well, hope is working.
Lexie: And Zack is in preschool, so, um, I invited Jennifer, Tek, Patrick.
Celeste: Tek? You mustn't get too close to Thomas Edward Kramer. If you do, Alexandra, he's going to ruin your life.
Marlena: I just had a terrible thought.
Marlena: What if everybody in Salem ends up right here in club med purgatory?
Roman: Well, it wouldn't surprise me. I mean, who's ever behind all this plans on keeping us here a long time. Otherwise, why go to the trouble of replicating all our homes?
Marlena: And all this humidity, too.
Roman: All right... cream without sugar. Here you go, doc.
Marlena: I don't believe it.
Roman: What, that I remember how you like your coffee?
Marlena: No. Look at this. I bought these pajamas for John. I had them monogrammed, but they said "J.B." Not "R.B."
Roman: You know what? I just -- I just noticed that. I, uh, I took a shower last night. These were hanging on the back of the door. I thought you left them for me.
Marlena: I did. I took them right out of John -- John's replica closet.
Roman: Our host is trying to unnerve us.
Marlena: Right. Well, it's working. It'd be easier if things were completely different, not just almost exactly the same.
Roman: Did you put this on the tray?
Marlena: Yeah. It's your fave. I got it from Alice's kitchen.
Roman: You know, I haven't had a chocolate doughnut for breakfast since you and I were married.
Marlena: What's happening here?
Roman: You know, doc, it's like we've gone back in time. It’s... like we've gone back to when we were married and we were together. It -- maybe that's what our captor wants.
Marlena: What are you doing to us here?
Marlena: [Gasps] Maybe that's him.
[Door lock jiggling]
Roman: All right. Stay back, stay back. It's you.
Lexie: Mom, Abe trusted Tek completely. He's been very kind to us. He even got Theo this cute little football, didn't he, sweetheart? Didn't he, sweetheart?
Celeste: Darling, the man is interested in you, Alexandra.
Lexie: As a friend.
Celeste: Oh, no. Unh-unh. It's more than that. I saw it when I read his cards.
Lexie: Uh, Mom, look, um, I'm going to give Theo his bottle and put him in his playpen. Would you start on these, please? Thank you.
Celeste: Theodore is not the main attraction, at least not as far as Mr. Kramer is concerned.
Lexie: I'll take it.
Celeste: Thank you, darling.
Lexie: So, um, what else did your cards have to say about Tek?
Celeste: I thought you didn't want to hear about my cards.
Lexie: Well, Mom, you just told me the guy would ruin my life. Is that all you're going to share?
Celeste: You just want to know more about him, right?
Lexie: Well, I -- I think he's a great guy, but, um, he's awfully mysterious. I mean, why doesn't he have a woman in his life? I know he likes them. I've seen him flirting with some very attractive ones at the policemen's picnic, but he never asks them out. I guess he just hasn't found the right one.
Celeste: Or he has his eye on someone else.
Lexie: Mom, I'm in mourning.
Celeste: Alexandra, you're flesh and blood, darling.
Lexie: Well, I just thought he might be right for one of my single friends, that's all.
Celeste: Oh. Are you sure about that?
Lexie: Yes, I am. I barely know the man, Mom.
Celeste: Mm. Yeah, well, you ought to keep it like that, darling. You know, I knew there was a reason why I was unable to contact the spirits earlier. It's Tek. He's interfering -- keeping Abraham away from his son and his wife.
Lexie: That is ridiculous.
Lexie: Tek. Hi, um, come in.
Tek: Yeah, I, uh, I know the party's not till this afternoon, but I just thought you might want to see this.
Lexie: What is it?
Tek: It's a package from Abe.
Roman: Abe. You gave us a little scare there.
Abe: Sorry. Did I come at a bad time?
Marlena: No. Not at all. Roman's just here to keep an eye on me.
Abe: Of course.
Roman: Any news from the outside world?
Abe: You heard the siren.
Marlena: Who could miss the sirens?
Abe: Seems like another of the dearly departed is about to show up.
Marlena: Abe, let me get you some coffee. Come on in.
Roman: Come on.
Abe: Thank you.
Roman: What are you looking at me like that for?
Abe: It's strange -- seeing two people who used to be married in pajamas... hanging out in a replica of the home Marlena shared with John.
Roman: Don't I know it.
Abe: I hope you're not getting too comfortable around your ex-wife.
Roman: Abe, what are you getting at?
Roman: Look, I stayed with Marlena because she was scared. You know what it was like when you first got here.
Roman: You feel like you've had a complete breakdown.
Abe: True, true.
Roman: Besides, what if our captor had paid her a visit?
Abe: He hasn't shown his face yet.
Roman: Abe, you know what I'm saying.
Abe: I know you're concerned about Marlena, but I think that's exactly what our host wants.
Roman: Look at this. He put a pair of John's pajamas with my initials on 'em in the closet here.
Abe: Roman, he's tempting you. He's trying to stir up your old feelings for each other, hoping to destroy your relationships in Salem.
Roman: Don't say that.
Abe: The thought must have passed through your mind.
Roman: Yeah, yeah, Abe, it did.
Abe: Listen to me, buddy. I think the best thing for you to do at this point is to keep a safe distance from Marlena.
Roman: What are you talking about? Abe, I don't care what the hell is going on. I am not about to abandon Marlena.
Jennifer: I'm sorry. First I snap at you, and then I use you like a handkerchief.
Patrick: You're allowed.
Jennifer: Oh, I wish I could blame it on the hormones.
Patrick: Hey, you're having a baby all by yourself. And it hasn't been an easy pregnancy.
Jennifer: Yeah. And with this baby, I'm gonna have to be mother and father.
Patrick: Yeah. Unfortunately, you're not alone there.
Jennifer: I know, and that's the thing. I don't want to sit around feeling sorry for myself. I mean, your mom -- she did this, didn't she?
Patrick: I can't recommend ma -- my mom as a role model, but I'm sure you'll do great.
Jennifer: But then I think, what if it's a boy? I mean, a girl is one thing. I understand girls. I'm a girl. A boy is a completely other --
Patrick: You're right. We are a different species.
Jennifer: Did I show you the book that -- that Abby got me? It's so cute. You write letters in it to the baby before they're born, and then you can put a bunch of pictures in it, and... I put a picture in of me being enormous.
Patrick: You look -- you look great here.
Jennifer: Well... and here's a little snapshot of Jack that I put in there.
Patrick: Ah, that's nice.
Jennifer: Yeah. That is nice. And the mother's side -- you know, I filled it all out, but the father's side is -- is completely blank. You know, Jack was adopted. And I just -- I wish that he could be here because he had the most amazing way with words, and he would know exactly what to say right there. You know what? I have to wrap Theo’s present. I'm not thinking.
Patrick: Well, thanks for sharing this with me.
Jennifer: Oh, you're welcome. Thank you. Thank you for being my friend.
Jennifer: Let me try this one more time.
Patrick: There you go.
Jennifer: Thank you.
Patrick: So... what would you like to say to your baby, Jack? Okay.
Marlena: What's going on here?
Marlena: Really? Sounds to me like you were fighting.
Roman: Abe is convinced that our captor is plotting to reunite you and me.
Abe: The pajamas, the monogram -- I think it speaks for itself. Look, I didn't mean to upset you, Roman, and I'm not suggesting any fault on your part or Marlena's. I'm sorry.
Roman: Me too, partner. Me too.
Marlena: Why don't you come sit before your coffee gets cold, hmm?
Abe: Thank you. You know, uh... I think the real reason that I was upset with the two of you is I was thinking about Lexie. She may be going through the same thing back in Salem.
Marlena: Lexie is in deep mourning. The only man in her life is Theo.
Abe: And today is his first birthday.
Roman: Aw, man. I missed many of my kids' birthdays, and nothing can make up for what we lost, but I got a second chance, Abe. We all will.
Abe: Well, I've made a terrible mistake, Roman. Because of what I sent her... I may never get a second chance.
Lexie: Oh, my goodness. I wonder what it could be.
Celeste: Now, be careful, Alexandra. It could be some sort of hoax. Oh, my God, it could be -- worse yet, a bomb or something.
Lexie: Mom --
Tek: I scanned it at headquarters. It's safe. It's all right.
Lexie: Thank you.
Tek: And just to be sure, I contacted the delivery service, and they verified that commander carver set the whole thing up months ago. And he specifically requested that the package be sent to the precinct today.
Lexie: Well, it must be a birthday present for Theo.
Tek: Well, there is a chance that it might have something to do with the Murphy murder investigation.
Lexie: When Abe was getting close to making an arrest, he was afraid his life was in danger.
Celeste: Yes. That's when he revised his will.
Lexie: He must have arranged a gift for our son around the same time.
Tek: Yeah. And if Abe had survived, he could have intercepted the box and given it to Theo himself.
Celeste: Wait, um, darling. Why don't you open it? Just in case, yeah?
Celeste: Here, give me this.
Lexie: What did I tell you?
Tek: Oh, wait, that's not it.
Tek: It's for you.
Jennifer: So I'll wrap Theo’s present, if you agree that's not too strenuous, and then I will rest until the party starts.
Patrick: No floor polishing?
Jennifer: No, no floor polishing. You were right, of course. Thank you for, uh, for hearing me out. I think I just had a lot of things bottled up inside.
Patrick: Are you feeling any better?
Jennifer: Yes, much.
Patrick: Good. Well, I'm going to grab a shower and get ready.
Jennifer: Okay. Oh. Oh, my gosh. I don't believe this.
Marlena: Abe, what did you do?
Abe: You know, when I first felt my life was in danger, I started putting my affairs in order.
Roman: You and Jack both. I remember.
Abe: I'd found a birthday present for Theo. I wrapped it, I paid a delivery service to send it to Lexie in care of the Salem P.D. just in case anything happened to me.
Roman: So she's getting it today.
Abe: And I stuck in a note to Lexie with the gift.
Marlena: Do you want to tell us what it said?
Tek: Maybe I should go.
Celeste: Yes. Thank you for respecting my daughter's privacy.
Lexie: No, no, I-I want you both to stay. Just give me a moment, okay?
Abe's voice: Dearest Lexie, I pray you never open this letter. If you do... it will mean I'm dead.
Abe's voice: Today I came upon the perfect gift for our son's first birthday. I'm looking forward to celebrating it with you. But if for any reason I don't survive this investigation, please know I'm loving you both for all eternity. More than anything, I want you and Theo to have a wonderful life. So if you find a -- a man you can love, someone who will love you and our boy unconditionally, I want you to... move on. Lexie, my darling, I hope you take my words to heart and know that I will love you always. Your husband and your partner for life, Abe.
Abe: Oh, what have I done?
Marlena: A very beautiful thing. You were trying to comfort the woman you love and encourage her to live her life fully.
Abe: But I'm not dead. None of us are. What if the people we love move on without us?
Jennifer: "My name is Jack Deveraux, and I'm your father. Welcome to the world, sweet baby. I'm sorry I'm not there to greet you in person. I'm sitting on a star high up in the sky watching over you. I'm sure you're going to be one of the most beautiful babies in the world -- you and Abigail." Oh. Ha ha. You're still awake. Maybe you want to hear the rest of this. "It's important that you know you were made with love -- a love as deep as the ocean, as high as the moon, a love I shared with your mother. She'll take wonderful care of you, but just remember, your daddy will be there, too, smiling down on you and loving you, even if you can't see me."
Patrick: [Thinking] Jack's watching over your baby, and I'm going to look out for you.
Celeste: What did Abraham have to say, darling?
Lexie: Uh, he, uh... he sent his love.
Tek: nothing about the Murphy case?
Lexie: No, I'm afraid not.
Tek: Okay. Then I should be getting back to the station.
Lexie: Okay, uh... you'll come back for Theo’s party, right?
Tek: Yeah, I wouldn't miss it for the world.
Lexie: Okay. And thanks for dropping by the package.
Tek: Oh, you're welcome. See you later.
Celeste: Dear God.
Lexie: Mom, what is it?
Celeste: I don't know how to tell you this, darling.
Lexie: Tell me what?
Celeste: Abraham's not dead.
Marlena: Abe... just because you gave her permission to move on doesn't mean she's going to do that. Lexie's heart is broken. She's not ready. And men like you don't come along every day.
Abe: Well, thank you for saying that.
Marlena: But it's true.
Abe: I didn't have a chance to raise Brandon, and that's why it's so important to me that Theo have a dad who's involved with his life. That's why I encouraged Lexie to move on.
Roman: Yeah, but, Abe -- Abe, that is a lot easier said than done. I mean, look how long it took me to find love after doc and I split up.
Abe: Well, you did find it eventually. You know, it took me and Lexie forever to have Theo. We couldn't seem to get pregnant. And then there was that whole adoption fiasco. And now that we have a son together, I should be raising him myself.
Marlena: You know what? We've got to have some faith in our spouses here. I think deep down, they have some sense that we are still alive.
Roman: Well, doc, that is a very romantic notion, but I --
Marlena: But we have to have faith.
Abe: Well, I pray you're right.
Roman: But the longer we're here, the easier it is for them to move on.
Marlena: It's happening again.
Abe: Preparations are being made. It's getting closer.
Marlena: How many more people have to die in Salem?
Roman: This is part of the same warning we heard last night. It just means one more person is about to die... for now.
Abe: The question is... who?
Marlena: Oh. Ooh.
“Next on Days Of Our Lives”
Lexie: Take off your clothes.
Roman: Who knows what Sami might do now that both her parents are gone?
Sami: What did you use for inspiration when you really wanted to make someone suffer?
Julie: Get dressed. I'll show you something.
Celeste: I need to know who's going to die next. No, it can't be!
