Preacher: And by the power vested in me, I hereby pronounce you husband and wife. EJ, you may kiss the bride.
Preacher: Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Mr. and Mrs. Elvis DiMera.
[Cheers and applause]
[Mendelssohn's Wedding March]
Chad: I guess now is when I say congratulations, huh?
EJ: Thank you, thank you. And listen, thank you for coming as well. I appreciate it.
Taylor: You did it, Nikki.
Nicole: I really did, didn't I?
Taylor: Yeah, all the best, sis, all the happiness in the world.
Nicole: Thank you. Mm.
Philip: She's asleep now.
Maxine: Oh, that's what she needs.
Philip: Damn stuff was worthless.
Philip: The medication that Daniel prescribed. For postpartum depression. She takes it for, like, a day or two, then she tries to commit suicide?
Maxine: We don't know that medication had any effect. Sometimes it takes a while for it to work its way into the system. The main thing now is that Chloe get lots of rest. She's on a suicide watch. We'll make sure that nothing happens to her while she's here.
Philip: And what about when she goes home?
Melanie: Uh...did you go to nursing school and not tell me? Why are you wearing those scrubs?
Philip: Um... it was kind of an accident.
[Pounding on door]
Bo: I've got it! Hey there, Roman.
Roman: You alone?
Bo: Uh, yes, Ciara's upstairs with Hope.
Roman: All right, good. We need to talk.
Nicole: I am so glad you're here.
Taylor: Oh, yeah, yeah. So am I.
Nicole: So is EJ.
Nicole: Glad you're here.
Nicole: It's pretty obvious.
Taylor: Right. Yeah, no, he's very nice.
Taylor: What, Nicole? Why are you looking at me like that?
Nicole: Just curious... when did you two meet? How do you know him?
Bo: What's wrong?
Roman: I tried calling your cell phone; it kept going to voice mail.
Bo: Yeah, I'm recharging. But you could've called the house or Hope's phone. Why didn't you do that?
Hope: Hey, look who's here.
Hope: Hi, I thought I heard your voice. Is something wrong?
Melanie: What kind of accident? Why are you wearing those?
Philip: I... I jumped in the river.
Melanie: Okay. All these cryptic answers, you're kind of freaking me out. Philip, what happened?
Chad: Look at your dad, all proud and happy.
EJ: Aw, I certainly am. Aren't I, hmm?
Johnny: You got married.
EJ: Did I? I did, I did get married, yes. I'm very proud of you. You're all dressed up. Looking like the fine young man that you are. I hope you behaved yourself, hmm?
Chad: It's nice being a dad, huh?
EJ: [Sighs] Yeah, it is.
Taylor: Nicole, why is it important how I met EJ?
Nicole: Well, why wouldn't it be? First of all, I just married the guy, and second... you said you didn't know him and it turns out that you do.
Chad: Congratulations, Mrs. DiMera.
Nicole: Thanks. I'm glad you could be here, Chad.
Chad: Eh, look, I know we've had our run-ins in the past, but, well... I hope you're really happy.
Nicole: We will be. Make no mistake about that.
[Chatter and laughter]
Lexie: Oh, EJ, you look happier than I've seen you in years!
EJ: That's because I am.
Lexie: Now listen, about this business with Nicole's sister...
Abe: EJ, congratulations.
EJ: Abe, oh, thank you so much. I really appreciate you coming down, and you too, Theo.
Theo: Wedding, yay!
Nicole: Oh. Hello, Kate.
Kate: Hi. Such a lovely dress. Really an original design that suits your body type.
Nicole: Really glad you could be here, Kate.
Kate: Thanks, I wouldn't have missed it. Hearing you and EJ exchange all kinds of vows of love and honor. I'm sure you're going to be happily married for at least a couple of weeks.
Nicole: Mm, well... and just think, we'll be sharing that great big mansion that you adore so much. You know, with all that wretched, ugly artwork on the walls upstairs. Oh, gosh, speaking of wretched and ugly, where is Stefano? Hmm? Did someone need to be whacked and there was no one else to do the job?
Kate: Wow. [Chuckles] I don't know, my guess would be that since you and EJ have kind of a "been there, done that" kind of thing, he knew how this story was gonna end.
Maggie: Well, Mrs. DiMera, shall we go to the reception here? Uh, oh. I mean the younger Mrs. DiMera.
Kate: That's you.
Nicole: That is me.
Maggie: That is you, and--
Nicole: Excuse me.
Kate: So... are you here just for the wedding, or are you going to be staying?
Taylor: Oh, that depends.
Taylor: On whether or not my sister needs help with her monster-- oh, ha! [Laughing] I mean, mother-in-law.
Melanie: You're clearly upset. What happened?
Philip: It involved Chloe.
Melanie: Did she fall in the river, too?
Melanie: Were you guys on the pier? Is she walking around in scrubs also?
Maxine: I'm gonna go check on Chloe right now, see how she's doing. I'll let you know.
Melanie: Wait a minute. Chloe's a patient? What happened?
Maxine: I'm sorry, I thought you already knew.
Melanie: Oh, my God, she tried to commit suicide?
Roman: Actually, I have good news.
Bo: Okay, let's hear it.
Roman: The police review board has cleared you of all charges, Bo.
Hope: Yes! I knew it, I knew it! This is great.
Roman: The ruling says that they considered the jailbreak the equivalent of rescuing a hostage. You'll be reinstated in the morning, Commissioner Brady.
Hope: Not soon enough. This is great news.
Bo: Yeah, great news. Thanks, Roman.
Hope: Oh, come on. Come on, where's the big smile?
Bo: Just waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's not all great news, is it?
Maxine: Excellent. We were a little worried about hypothermia. That river's awfully cold this time of the year. How you feeling?
Chloe: Better, actually. Things seem a little brighter.
Maxine: Like a dark cloud is lifting?
Chloe: Yeah, just like that.
Maxine: Good. That's what we want.
Chloe: But I don't know if I can trust what I feel, or if I'm getting better.
Maxine: Let me tell you something, honey. When my oldest boy was born, after a couple of nights I didn't wanna have anything to do with him. All I wanted was to go to bed. And then I decided that the best thing for everybody would be if I jumped out the window.
Chloe: You had--
Maxine: Postpartum depression.
Chloe: What did you do?
Maxine: My mother-in-law marched me to the doctor. I started taking medication and got better in no time. And you will too, just... just hang on.
Melanie: So Parker and Chloe were gone?
Philip: Well, there was just this note. She said she was "sorry it had to be this way, please forgive me."
Melanie: And you knew she was gonna try and kill herself?
Philip: And I also knew it was going to be at the pier. Well, that's where she said she first fell in love with Daniel.
Philip: When I got there, Parker was in his stroller. There was a note pinned to his blanket, and Chloe was out in the water, like, 30 feet. So I dove in, I got her back to the pier. And she didn't even put up a fight; it was like she'd given up.
Melanie: Where's Parker?
Philip: He's fine.
Melanie: We have to get him now. Philip, Chloe cannot be allowed to raise that baby. She's insane.
Maggie: Kate, should we reserve a chair for Stefano at the bride and groom's table? Is he coming back?
Kate: I don't know and I don't care.
Kate: Maggie, wait. It's nice of you to ask me, but let me just explain something. When you're with a man like Stefano, or Victor, you just learn not to ask questions.
Maggie: I'm not with Victor.
Kate: Right. It takes a certain kind of woman. I guess what I'm really saying is that you and I are nothing alike. Which I'm sure you know. So word to the wise about Victor.
Chad: Mr. Mayor? Thought I'd say hello.
Abe: Oh, hello. Nice to see you, Chad. Hey, you know, uh... I hope I'm not presuming when I say it's not too late.
Chad: I'm sorry?
Abe: To tell Stefano that you want no part of being a DiMera. To run for your life.
Nicole: Hi, is Sydney still napping? Great. Well, when she wakes up, tell her I'll be home soon with lots of stories to tell her about the wedding. Thank you, Mary.
EJ: So you're feeling all right then, are you? Your dizziness.
Taylor: No, and I'm fine, yes.
EJ: Oh, good.
Taylor: Well, congratulations.
EJ: Thank you, thank you.
Taylor: No, I'm very happy for you and Nicole.
Roman: Well, there is no easy way to say this. Hope, the board commends you on your work that you did in bringing down the organ-selling syndicate.
Hope: But I'm still a convicted felon.
Roman: You are, I'm sorry.
Bo: So they're not gonna reinstate her.
Roman: Hey, believe me, I gave them an earful and very loudly, I might add. But they think the precedent--
Bo: They're a bunch of cheap politicians with no spines whatsoever. She risked her life to stop the killing in that prison. And this is how they thank her? This is their--
Bo: Idea of justice? They should be giving her a damn medal.
Roman: I couldn't agree more.
Hope: It's okay, it's okay.
Bo: No, it's not okay.
Hope: Yes, actually you know what? [Sighs] It is, it's fine. I'm actually happy. I'm glad I won't have to be a detective anymore. It's okay.
Melanie: Where is Parker? Is he in the nursery?
Philip: Jennifer Deveraux is taking care of him right now. Wheeling him around so he can get some sleep.
Melanie: Good, that means we can find him.
Philip: Wait, wait, wait, wait, are we talking about taking care of him tonight? Or forever?
Roman: You can pick up your firearm up in the morning. Congrats, little brother, welcome back.
Bo: Yeah. In a funny sort of way, I'm actually looking forward to seeing you at the station in the morning.
Roman: You may change your tune there when you see all the paperwork that's piled up.
Bo: Hey, you were supposed to be handling that.
Roman: I was, but then I had to step aside for the manhunt because it involved you guys, and then Rafe wound up in that car accident.
Bo: How's he doing?
Roman: Okay, I guess. When he comes back, he'll come back as detective.
Hope: My old job.
Hope: Well, you know what, this is...this is a great night. It is. Bo goes back to doing what he loves best. And everything's gonna work out just fine, you'll see. Believe me, it's gonna be fine.
Roman: I hope so. Any rate, give Ciara a hug for me, I gotta go.
Hope: So good to see you.
Bo: Thanks, Roman.
Roman: You bet. And... it's great seeing you two together in the same house.
Bo: Okay, let's hear it. How do you really feel?
Melanie: Philip, you're Parker's father, of course we're going to take him forever.
Philip: And to hell with Chloe?
Melanie: Oh, I'm sorry, but when a woman leaves their child in the freezing cold on the pier and then throws themself into the river, she doesn't really get to decide anymore, much less get another chance to do it again.
Philip: She couldn't help herself. Okay? She was depressed. She was on the wrong meds, okay?
Melanie: Come on, Philip, she was having problems before the depression. She was running around trying to get Daniel to take her back, acting desperate and pathetic.
Philip: Just because she's having these problems--
Philip: Doesn't mean that she can't get well. Or that she should have her son taken away from her. Once she's on the right meds, she'll be fine.
Melanie: She didn't want Parker ever since the second my dad dumped her. All right, if she was any mother at all, she never would've abandoned him. We have to take him.
Philip: You just can't wait, can you?
Philip: Now I remember, not long ago, Chloe said you accused her of being an unfit mother. That she shouldn't be allowed to raise Parker.
Melanie: Chloe said that, I denied it, remember?
Melanie: Are you really gonna believe her over me?
Philip: Man, this is getting weird. I don't know what to believe anymore.
Lexie: Would you stop being so cynical? Chad's EJ's best man for a reason. His brother reached out to him, don't spoil it.
Abe: My wife gets very sentimental at weddings.
Abe: He needs to have a realistic point of view, honey. His future is at stake. You know, when Lexie first learned that she was a DiMera, believe me, those were not good days. And there were many times afterwards where she wished that she had never heard of Stefano DiMera. And I mean with a passion.
Abe: So I wasn't kidding you when I said you should run for it. If it was up to me, my family would have nothing whatsoever to do with the DiMeras.
EJ: I wanted to mention to you--
Maggie: Hi, come on. I'm sorry to interrupt.
Maggie: I wanted to just congratulate you. I have never seen Nicole look so happy.
EJ: [Chuckles] No, neither have I. I'm sorry, would you excuse me for a moment? There's a telephone call I have to make.
Maggie: Of course.
EJ: Thank you for everything.
Maggie: Oh. My pleasure. So handsome, mm-mm-mm.
Taylor: Excuse me, I'm feeling a little warm. I think I'm gonna get some air. Sorry, Maggie.
Nicole: Taylor, Taylor. Hey. So we never finished our conversation about how you met EJ.
Hope: You calling me a liar?
Bo: I'd like you to tell me how you really feel. Being told you can never go back to the force, that's-- that's gotta hurt.
Hope: I'm not gonna let it hurt. I've had a lot of sadness in my life lately, and so have you. So you know what? I think we should look on the bright side. Glass half full. Bo, I am out of prison. Ciara has her mother back full-time. And you know what, I need to keep an eye on Maggie, not to mention help Jennifer get back on her feet. If I had a job, how could I do all of those things?
Bo: Okay, I get that.
Hope: Ah! There's one more perk.
Bo: What's that?
Hope: I get to spend more time with you.
Chloe: I still can't believe what I did.
Philip: Yeah. As long as you're feeling better.
Chloe: I am. You know, I'm actually kind of surprised. I thought the medication would make me feel hazy, or like I'm out of it. But I feel like I'm starting to finally get focused again.
Philip: You're not taking the same medication that Daniel prescribed?
Chloe: Nothing, I'm just glad that I'm feeling better.
Philip: So they gave you a different medication then. Chloe?
Chloe: [Sighs] No. I didn't take the pills the first time.
Philip: You didn't take the medication that Daniel prescribed? You told me you were.
Chloe: I know I said that-- I told you, I told Maggie-- I just didn't want you guys to get on me about it. I thought the pills would make me feel worse. Like I'm lost in a fog or something.
Philip: Why would you think that?
Chloe: I just--I thought the pills would make me worse, and so I dumped them down a drain.
Philip: I just don't get it. You'd never taken that kind of pill before. Did Daniel tell you there would be terrible side effects or something?
Philip: Then who did?
Chloe: Your mother.
Melanie: It's worse than we thought, Kate. Chloe tried to commit suicide.
Kate: What? Dear God, is Parker okay?
Melanie: Yes, but Chloe's in the hospital. And she left Parker on the pier in a stroller and then threw herself into the river.
Kate: The river? Oh, that's horrible. And she just left Parker there?
Melanie: Yeah, but Parker's fine. She's fine too, thank God. Philip jumped into the water and saved her.
Kate: Okay, look, you stay there. I'm on my way.
Melanie: This is awful. But I am gonna get that baby.
Kate: Sorry, something came up.
Taylor: Oh. Bye, Kate. [Chuckles] Am I wrong, or did the room just get brighter?
Nicole: Nah, definitely. Okay, so talk to me now. Okay, look, you walked down the aisle.
Nicole: You saw EJ and you literally stopped and stared. You both looked like you had seen a ghost. What is up with you two?
Taylor: Look, I already told you, Nikki, it's nothing. It's like he said. We were both just shocked because we had seen each other before, but I didn't know he was EJ and he didn't know I was your sister.
Nicole: But that reaction was so... how did you meet? When?
Taylor: Oh, come on, Nikki, why does it matter?
Nicole: Oh, my God. You saw him on the internet, didn't you? He popped up in an article about his past and that is why you stopped dead when you saw him.
Taylor: No, that's not it.
Nicole: Then what?
Taylor: Okay, fine, I might as well tell you.
Bo: Spending more time with me? That's something I like. A lot.
Bo: But you do remember, when I go back to being commissioner, I'll be on that crazy 24-7 schedule. And when you were a detective, you were down at the station, and we were always able to work things out.
Hope: And now we'll make things work in a new way. Oh, just don't expect me to greet you at the front door with beer and pretzels. Oh, or expect a gourmet meal. Gourmet, I don't cook so that would never work, but...
Bo: Can I expect you to bring me my slippers?
Hope: You don't wear slippers.
Bo: Good point.
Hope: You see, it's gonna be okay. I can handle this. And you know what, I'm gonna prove it to you. I'll be right back, stay right there.
Bo: You're--kit-- don't hurt yourself in there.
Kate: Hi, hi. Where's Philip?
Melanie: With Chloe.
Kate: Okay, and Parker?
Melanie: With Jennifer. And I tried to talk to Philip about taking Parker and raising him, but he wouldn't give me an answer.
Kate: He's going to go for it, don't worry. But you can help by getting Parker to Victor's and moving back into the mansion. Okay, all right. So go to Jennifer's, get Parker. I'm going to go to Maggie's. I'm going to get the rest of his things, I'll bring them over to the mansion too. And it's very important that you make Philip understand that all of this has to happen today. Before Chloe gets a chance to bat her eyes and say she's gonna be good.
Melanie: Okay, I'm on it. I just can't really believe this is happening.
Philip: That's kinda weird.
Kate: What is?
Philip: I never thought I'd see you two getting along. Let alone happy as hell. Especially because something really terrible just happened.
Kate: Oh, shh, shh, shh. Just keep your voice down.
Philip: You do know that Chloe's accident could've been a horrible tragedy, don't you?
Melanie: Of course we do.
Kate: Oh, come on, the diva took a dive off the pier. Obviously, she thought she was in one of her operas.
Philip: Well, obviously, you don't give a damn that she almost died. But that would've been a wish come true for you. You would've been thrilled if Chloe had drowned, wouldn't you?
Lexie: EJ, look, I'm so sorry--I hate to leave early, but Harold said that Father went into his room and said he didn't want to be disturbed. In case his diabetes is acting up, I think he might need some medical attention.
EJ: Oh, sorry. I should have said something. I spoke to him earlier. He apologized for having to leave, but there's a business project that we're both working on--something came up, he had to go home and take care of it personally, so...
Lexie: So he's fine?
EJ: Oh, yeah. Absolutely fine, yeah.
EJ: He's sitting back having a grappa with a big, fat cigar.
Lexie: Oh, great! Terrific choices, terrific.
EJ: Anyway, he told me to enjoy my wedding, so that is exactly what I'm going to do.
Lexie: Oh, my little brother, mm!
Taylor: Stop worrying, okay, Nikki? I didn't see anything about EJ on the internet, good or bad. It's just that we've run into each other a couple of times since I've been back. But neither of us had any idea who the other one was. That's all.
Nicole: So all this stopping and staring during the ceremony, that was just because you were shocked?
Nicole: Oh, my goodness, Johnny! Oh, don't! Ay, ay, ay, my goodness. Honey, it's everywhere. Um, let's see. It's okay, buddy, you know what? It was an accident.
Johnny: I'm sorry.
Nicole: It's okay, it's okay. You know what, we'll fix it, right?
Maggie: Yes, we will. I'm gonna get some towels, and Nicole's dress will be just as good as new in no time. How about that, okay?
Nicole: No more running with that, okay?
Taylor: You guys need me? No? All right, okay. Oh, God. Just go home.
EJ: We need to talk.
Taylor: About what?
EJ: You know about what. About you and about me.
Hope: [Clears throat]
Bo: [Chuckles wow. Where'd you get that?
Hope: What every housewife should own. Ciara insisted that I buy it at the church tag sale.
Bo: Ah, nice.
Hope: Well, I'm glad you like it, because it is exactly what I will be wearing every evening you come home. Oh, and then I'll say, "How was your day, dear?"
Bo: [Chuckles] And I will say, "oh, it was rough. The only way I made it through was thinking of you."
Hope: And I'll be coy, and say, "you are so sweet."
Bo: And I will say, 'm not just being sweet."
Hope: Ah! [Giggles]
Bo: "It's the truth. I need you."
Kate: Philip, how could you possibly say something like that? Of course I didn't wanna see Chloe die.
Philip: Well, you sure as hell didn't want her to get well.
Kate: Oh. Well, that's a really, really terrible thing to say.
Philip: You made her dump the medication that Daniel prescribed. You had her thinking that she would be better off without it, when she obviously needed it very badly.
Kate: I did no such thing.
Philip: You told her the pills would make her feel numb, lost in a fog, that she wouldn't care about anything anymore including losing Daniel.
Kate: That's nonsense. Philip.
Philip: She wanted to be a good mother. She didn't wanna feel numb. She wanted to get better. But that wasn't possible, because you had her dump the pills down the drain. And she got more depressed than ever.
Kate: Okay, look. This woman is delusional. None of that ever happened. I mean, why are you believing her? Why do you n believe me?
Philip: Do I really need to tell you that, Mother? And what about you? Were you in on this?
Melanie: This is the first I'm hearing about this.
Philip: Right. That's why when I came out of Chloe's room, you two were acting all conspiratorial and very pleased with yourselves.
Melanie: Please don't misunderstand.
Philip: Just no more talking. No more lies. You both stay away from Chloe. Both of you. Stay away.
Melanie: Did you do that? Did you talk Chloe into throwing away her pills?
Lexie: Okay, I think someone's a bit hyper, so Mary's waiting outside to take Johnny and Theo to the mansion, okay?
Johnny: No, I wanna stay here.
Theo: Stay here, stay here!
Johnny: I don't wanna go!
Theo: I don't wanna go.
Chad: Hey, you guys, you guys, come here, come here. All right, look. Come on up here, come on. All right. The wedding's over and I'm kinda done here, so why don't we just go back to the place and maybe we can hang out a little bit, read some stories, huh?
Chad: All right, that sounds awesome. You guys know what kind of stories I like? Stories about dinosaurs. Rawr!
Chad: Yeah, yeah? You guys ready for that?
EJ: You were about to leave here, weren't you?
EJ: Without telling Nicole?
Taylor: She just won't let it go. You know, "how did you meet EJ?" "When did you meet?" "Where did you meet him?" Today's just not the day for that.
EJ: You realize when I met you on the pier, I had no idea you were Nicole's sister. I mean, if I'd known that, I wouldn't have...
Taylor: You never would've what?
Lexie: I'm gonna go help Mary get the boys in their car seats, okay?
Lexie: Be right back.
Chad: Right behind you guys. I'll see you at the house, okay?
Abe: Hey, you were terrific with the boys. It's just what they needed.
Chad: Ah, it was no problem. They're great kids.
Abe: Have you thought any more about what I told you earlier?
Chad: What, that I should run for my life?
Chad: Actually, yeah, I have. But I'm a DiMera, whether I like it or not. And I'm thinking if Dr. Carver, if Lexie can handle things, so could I.
Abe: Yeah, you might be right. You know, since I'm an old guy, and you're a young guy, my first assumption was "he's not ready." But you seem to be able to read the situation.
Chad: Hope so.
Abe: Me too, Chad. Let me say for Lexie, Theo, and Johnny, too... welcome... to our dysfunctional family. Come on.
Hope: Sorry. Sorry, I...
Bo: Too soon?
Hope: I-I-I... I don't know, I just-- I guess I'm not ready for whatever is supposed to happen between us. What's supposed to happen next.
Bo: But you're okay with where we are now?
Hope: Yeah, I'm okay. Are you okay?
Bo: Mm-hmm. Do you think Ciara fell asleep or something?
Hope: She is kinda quiet, isn't she?
Bo: Yeah. Um...I'll go check on her.
Kate: Hey, let's remember the plan here, all right? Chloe's unfit to be Parker's mother. We just need to prove that.
Melanie: Chloe tried to kill herself. I mean, was that your plan all along?
Kate: Do you want that baby? What do you care how it happens? We can't get sidetracked by worrying about Chloe's health, Melanie.
Melanie: We have to do this legally, Kate.
Kate: Oh, "legally"? You wanna do it "legally"? How long do you think that's gonna take? You know the problem here? You need to make up your mind. Do you want Parker or not?
Chloe: Are you okay?
Philip: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine.
Chloe: You've hardly said a word since you came back in here.
Philip: Just... you know, work stuff.
Chloe: You know what I was hoping for?
Philip: What's that?
Chloe: Is that you had gone to get Parker so that I could hold him again.
Philip: Maybe not today. You need to concentrate on getting better.
Chloe: I am. I'm getting better, but --
Philip: But what?
Chloe: Is it too late? Have I already lost my son?
Taylor: You never would've what, EJ?
EJ: Doesn't matter.
Taylor: Oh, come on. No games. Have you been thinking about me since we first met? Fantasizing... the way I have about you?
On the next "Days of our Lives" --
Philip: Of all people, my God, how could you do that?
Gabi: I warned you, Melanie's nothing but trouble.
Sami: What have you done?
