[Knock at door]
Abigail: Hi. Sorry to just drop by, but do you have a minute?
Austin: Of course. Anything for my trusty assistant. Come on in.
Abigail: Um...there's something I need to tell you.
Abigail: Uh, just not exactly sure how to say it.
Austin: Abigail, you know you can tell me absolutely anything.
Abigail: I love you.
Abigail: Oh, my God. I can't believe I just blurted it out like that. Look, I know that there's this total age difference between us and you're married... I've felt this way for a really long time, and I've tried to fight it, but all I really want is to...be with you. So I just need to know if there's even...a chance that you feel the same way about me.
Rafe: Oh, my God.
Carrie: W-what are you doing here? What's this?
Rafe: Hm? Uh, this is a huge mess, obviously.
Carrie: Yeah, and what's-- what is all this on your fingers there?
Rafe: Uh, that is the crown jewel in the tiara.
Carrie: Oh, boy. Shall I get that?
Carrie: Uh-huh, and this is all for Sydney's birthday party tonight?
Rafe: Yeah. Yeah, Sami was supposed to be taking care of it, but she got a last minute meeting and so, um...yeah. I'm lousy at making tiaras.
Carrie: Well, you're in luck. I happen to be a tiara expert.
Jennifer: Okay, this next section focuses on tax reform. Abe, do you want to go over these questions?
Abe: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I--my mind is just not on tax reform right now.
Jennifer: I know. I know...how much you don't like this.
Abe: I hate this. Having the questions fed to us...feels like cheating.
Jennifer: I know, but it's not, it's not really, okay? Because EJ did it. And I promise you, he is not wrestling with his conscience right now.
Abe: That used to be the difference between us.
Jennifer: Well, we don't have a choice, because we cannot let EJ win this debate.
Abe: [Sighs] Your, uh...source...
Jennifer: Jacobson, yes.
Abe: Your friend--yeah, yeah, Jacobson, is he sure that EJ is going to have the questions delivered to him this afternoon?
Jennifer: Yes, they're going to be hand-delivered so they can't be traced back to the moderator's office.
Jennifer: Yeah. So now we just have to figure out a way to switch the real questions with the questions that we've drawn up.
Abe: Oh, yeah.
Jennifer: So we can trip up EJ at his own game.
Abe: Got any ideas?
EJ: Ah, there's my favorite intern.
Will: I'm your only intern.
EJ: [Laughs] You know, William, you should learn to take a compliment. You'll find in life they are few and far between.
Will: Do you need me for something?
EJ: Yes, I do. It's something of a, uh, personal nature.
Will: Okay, what is it?
EJ: Well, as I'm sure you're aware, today's your sister's birthday.
Will: Yeah. We're having a party for her at the pub later.
EJ: As we've both very successfully managed to piss your mother off, she has decided not to invite me.
Will: I'm pretty sure that's not the only reason why. Okay. You were saying?
EJ: William, I would like to spend a little bit of time with my daughter on her birthday.
Will: You want me to talk to mom for you?
EJ: Mm...no, actually I have a much better idea. I'm going to throw a little party here at the mansion, and I would like you to bring the guest of honor.
Bo: Hey. Very accommodating of you to show up without a warrant.
Hope: All it took was one little phone call. Must be really eager to hear what we have to say.
Stefano: Well, I assume that you've made a decision regarding the safe deposit box Alice and I have...shared.
Stefano: So...what's it going to be? Hm? Are you going to try to find out what your grandmother tried to keep from you all these years or are you going to let the past rest in peace?
Austin: Well...come on in. What's on your mind?
Austin: Me? What did I do? Did I screw up another computer program?
Abigail: No. I just, um...I have something to tell you... and I'm not sure how you're going to react.
Austin: Is that why you seem a little nervous right now?
Abigail: A little bit.
Austin: Well, come on, Abigail, relax. You know you can tell me absolutely anything.
Abigail: Good. I hope so, 'cause this is big.
Rafe: Oh, I forgot to tell you. When my friend Marta found out that the D.A. was dropping the arson charges against her son, she said to tell you "Eres mi angel." You're her angel.
Carrie: That's sweet of her to say. Didn't actually do that much.
Rafe: You discovered the evidence that got the charges dropped against her son.
Carrie: I got lucky, but you brought me the case.
Rafe: Yeah, well, still, if you hadn't done that, he would have gone to jail for a crime he didn't commit. You saved his life.
Carrie: And yours, it seems. What do you think?
Carrie: [Laughs] It's an often overlooked skill, gluing jewels to a tiara.
Rafe: Yep, and one I obviously don't have. Seriously, is there nothing you can't do, Carrie?
Will: You want me to bring Sydney here? You know my mom is never going to go for that.
EJ: William, your mother and Kate are in Chicago, right? So they're not even going to be back until this evening.
Will: Meaning she won't have to know. Okay, no. What if Sydney tells mom about seeing you?
EJ: Well, it'll be too late by then, won't it, so it won't really matter.
Will: I'm not gonna do that. I can't.
EJ: "Because" is not an answer, William. You're really telling me that you're going to deny your sister the chance to spend a little bit of time with her father on her birthday?
Will: This is about more than that and you know it.
EJ: I know--let me tell you what I know. I know that your sister--my daughter--misses her father terribly, and I have an opportunity here, now, to be able to do something about that. Just let her come here. She can open some presents. She's going to spend some time with me, spend some time with Nicole. I know that would mean a great deal to her.
Will: Well, yeah, she does talk about you.
EJ: Sh-she does?
Will: Yeah, but if I bring Sydney here, my mom's going to lose her mind.
EJ: William, that's the whole idea. Right? Hm?
Will: Okay, well, I'll ask her, and if she says yes, then I'll bring her, and if she says no, I'm not going to kidnap her.
EJ: Okay, fantastic. Well, I think we both know what that means. Come on, run along.
Will: You know, it's amazing how--how you always manage to get exactly what you want.
Hope: I've given this whole situation a lot of thought... and then I realized something.
Stefano: What is that?
Hope: That whatever's in the safe deposit box must affect you in some way.
Stefano: Mm. And you base this...on what?
Hope: On the fact that there are two keys, Stefano...and both have to be used in order to open that box.
Bo: And we know that you and Mrs. H weren't best buddies, and she probably didn't entrust you to some important secret.
Stefano: This is the best you could come up with, huh? That your grandmother did not trust me. Well, that is very, very good police work, detectives. Thank goodness...that my tax dollars are being used in a wise way.
Hope: [Chuckles] Don't want to disappoint you, but there's more. You see, I don't think it was just my grandmother who wanted it kept secret. You must have wanted the same thing. In fact, you still do, don't you?
Rafe: Man, these birthday parties are out of control. I was lucky to have a party, much less a piņata.
Rafe: What's your favorite birthday party memory?
Carrie: No, I can't tell you.
Rafe: Why not?
Carrie: 'Cause it would sound too superficial now.
Rafe: Oh, well, now you've got to tell me.
Carrie: Okay. It was a princess party.
Carrie: Kind of like this, but, uh...there was a pony.
Carrie: [Laughs] Yes. But that's not what made it special.
Rafe: And what was it, the four-tier chocolate cake? [Laughter] Come on.
Carrie: No, it--it was, um... the last party that--that my mom threw for me.
Rafe: Oh. I didn't know, I'm sorry.
Carrie: Oh, no, it's okay. I mean, my mom, she threw these big, elaborate, extravagant parties for her friends all the time, and for work and...the fact that she had done it for me just made me realize, despite... everything, that she really did love me.
Rafe: Thank you.
Carrie: For what?
Rafe: For making me realize that all this...it's all worth it.
Jennifer: I couldn't reach Jacobson. He's on assignment.
[Door opens and shuts]
Abe: Are you expecting someone?
Jennifer: No. Abigail?
Lexie: Nope, just me.
Abe: Hey, you. Mwah.
Lexie: I hope you don't mind the interruption.
Jennifer: No, no, not at all.
Abe: Uh...what are you doing here? I mean, is--is everything all right?
Lexie: I just got a call from EJ.
Jennifer: Uh, really? About what?
Lexie: Don't worry, don't worry, it has nothing to do with the campaign. At least, not on the surface. As you know, today is Sydney's birthday...so EJ wants to know if we'll bring Theo over for a party he's decided to throw.
Abe: A party at the mansion.
Lexie: Yeah. Look, Abe, I know it's the last place you want to be right now, and trust me, I don't blame you. I have no desire to be around my brother myself.
Abe: This isn't about EJ.
Lexie: No, no, I mean, it's... it's about Theo and Sydney. Look, I just don't want my feelings about EJ to affect their relationship.
Jennifer: Uh, I think you should go.
Lexie: You do?
Lexie: What do you think, Abe?
Abe: Uh...well, I...yeah, it could be good for Theo to spend some time with his cousin.
Lexie: [Sighs] I don't know. I don't know. I mean, what if EJ tries to pull something while we're there? You know, something that will affect the campaign.
Jennifer: Uh, I could go too. I could go too, just to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
Lexie: Okay, well...then I guess we should get ready. [Sighs] We've got a party to attend.
Nicole: I hope Sydney still loves the peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
EJ: Oh, I think this is going to be a wonderful afternoon for everybody.
Nicole: I mean, will has to be going behind Sami's back, hm?
Nicole: "So"? Hey, why would he do that? And aren't you worried about the fallout?
EJ: Nicole, he's Sydney's brother, okay? She misses me, she misses you. And if Samantha doesn't want to make us a part of these festivities, then that's her problem.
Nicole: Okay, well...I'm still so excited to see her. She's growing so fast. I feel like it was just yesterday when I was still getting up for those 2:00 A.M. Feeds.
EJ: Help with the bow... thank you. You never did complain about that, did you?
Nicole: "Complain"? Those were the best moments of my life. Are you kidding? I loved spending time with her. I still love her so much. I mean, in my heart...I'll always think of her as mine.
Nicole: Okay, but not in some obsessive "I'm gonna kidnap her" way, okay?
EJ: Back to crazy town? [Laughs]
EJ: It's okay, I know. I know you love her and I love you for it.
EJ: There she is. Come here, birthday girl. [Groans] Happy birthday!
Nicole: Who's a big girl today--is it you?
Nicole: Yes, it is! Bam!
Nicole: Let's do another bam. One more bam. Bam! Bam. [Laughs]
Stefano: I am sorry to disappoint you, but I do not have anything to hide here.
Hope: Really? And I should believe you...why?
Stefano: Well, why would I offer to open the box if I did?
Hope: You wanted me to stop you. You tried to make me believe I wasn't ready to face whatever's in that box.
Stefano: Why would I do that?
Hope: To cover up the fact that you're the one who doesn't want that box opened.
Stefano: You know, you're giving me a lot more credit than I deserve here, because all I wanted to do was to protect you from what your grandmother did not have the heart to expose you to.
Bo: You really expect us to believe you're protecting us?
Stefano: You? No. But as far as my little heart thief here is, I always think of her best interests.
Hope: Don't...you dare refer to me that way.
Hope: Or act like that's supposed to mean something sentimental to me. You used me. You manipulated me and you stole years of my life from me. I'm not falling for your little mind games again.
Austin: So what is it you wanted to tell me?
Abigail: Well, I started working for Madison James...
Austin: Oh, no. You can't work for me anymore, is that it?
Abigail: No! No, I-I told you, this job totally comes first. But she did ask me if I would be interested in, uh...modeling for her.
Austin: That's fantastic. I mean, congratulations. That--I mean, I'm assuming you said yes.
Abigail: Not yet. First I wanted to make sure it was okay with you.
Austin: What, are you kidding me? Abby, this is an amazing opportunity for you. You think that I would stand in the way of that? Did you tell your parents about the modeling gig? I mean...is your mom on board?
Abigail: Austin, I don't need my parents' permission.
Austin: No, no, I didn't--I didn't mean it that way. It's just, I've known you since you were a kid. I mean, to me, you'll always be Jack and Jen's little girl. It's still so hard for me to think of you as a grown up. Did I just stick my foot in my mouth again?
Abigail: No. No, it's fine. Really, um...
Austin: Oh, no. Abby... I've upset you. And I know why.
Rafe: Oh, my God. I can't believe we're done. Thank you so much for helping me.
Carrie: No, thank you, this was a blast. I love this kid stuff.
Rafe: You and Austin... never mind. [Scoffs]
Rafe: None of my business.
Carrie: Gee, I wonder what you were about to ask me. Were you about to say "why don't you and Austin have kids?"
Carrie: By choice, sort of. I've always wanted them. Austin too. Um, then we got married and we decided to change careers and... law school was brutal, and then we were both working so hard to...get our careers going, and now...
Rafe: Timing's not right.
Rafe: Excuse me. Hello. This is. What? No, no, no, don't tell me you're sorry, just-- hello? He-- [Slams phone down] Damn it.
Carrie: What's wrong?
Lexie: Hello! Happy birthday, Sydney.
Nicole: Hey, look who's here.
Abe: You wanna go say hi to your cousin?
Nicole: [Laughs] Hi, Theo.
EJ: Alexandra. Means a lot that you came. Thank you.
Lexie: I'm here for Theo and Sydney, not you.
Jennifer: I, uh...I spoke to Jacobson on the way over.
Abe: What'd he say?
Jennifer: The papers haven't been delivered yet so we still have time to switch them.
Abe: I wish we could tell Lexie what we're doing.
Jennifer: What, are you having second thoughts about this? Abe...
Abe: Yeah, no. There are only a few weeks left until the election. With all these...little stunts, he's now leading in the polls. I cannot let EJ have total control of this city. I have to stop it...no matter what it takes.
Hope: Okay, let's go. Time to open up that box.
Stefano: And if I told you that you are making a major mistake...in, uh, your judgment?
Hope: Then I would tell you to keep your opinions to yourself. You know what, Brady? Whatever's inside that box may be just what we need to put Stefano DiMera away...for good, this time.
Stefano: Oh, God, you are so misguided.
Hope: Then prove it. Prove it. Stop delaying the inevitable and let's go. Let's open that damn box. Stop hiding behind my grandmother, Stefano, and face up to what you've done.
Stefano: You have no idea what you are talking about... how many lives those two secrets could destroy.
Hope: There are two secrets inside that box?
Kayla: Oh, I'm sorry. We're closed for a private party. [Laughs] What are you guys doing?
Rafe: We're trick or treating. What do you think we're doing?
Kayla: Well, you look adorable.
Rafe: I'm not adorable, okay? No.
Carrie: Okay. This headpiece itches, aunt Kayla. Could you do some surgery on it?
Kayla: Gladly...if you tell me what you guys are doing here. What's going on?
Rafe: The people I hired to play prince and princess of Sydney's favorite TV show canceled on me at the last minute. Couldn't find anyone else. So I'll be prince Casper and this is princess Miranda.
Rafe: Couldn't let her down.
Kayla: Well, it's very sweet of you. Let me get my camera. I would not forgive myself if I didn't take a picture of this.
Rafe: No, no--
Kayla: No, come on.
Carrie: Oh, no, I didn't even think about the pictures.
Rafe: Great. This is great. Knowing your family, there's going to be, like, a thousand of them on the internet tomorrow. Never live this down. [Sighs]
Jennifer: Will? Hi.
Will: Hi. Aunt Jen, hi.
Jennifer: I'm so surprised to see you here.
Will: Hi, Mr. Mayor. Oh, I'm just kind of the-- nowadays, I'm sort of the go-between for my family and for EJ.
Abe: Well, that's, um...a big responsibility.
Will: No, not really. Uh, just, you know, now that I'm working for him, I'm here all the time.
Jennifer: What? Wait, wait, back up. Did you just say you're working for EJ?
Abe: Since when?
Will: Since two weeks ago. I thought--I thought my grandmother told you guys. I'm just--I'm his campaign intern.
Jennifer: Please tell me you're kidding.
Abe: Well, if--if you want an internship, why didn't you come to me?
Will: You were completely staffed. Yeah.
Abe: I would have made room for you in a heartbeat.
Jennifer: Absolutely. I mean, we could still shuffle people around so you can be on our team. Please, get out of this.
Will: [Laughs nervously] Um...thank you, guys, but I-I can't. You know, I really appreciate it, but--but I've already, you know, I've already committed to EJ, and if I leave now, I'd be-- you know, it'd be unprofessional of me.
Lexie: Ugh. I can get it myself. Where's Father? It's not like him to miss an opportunity to spend some time with his grandchildren.
EJ: Oh, well, this thing came together so quickly that I couldn't get hold of him. I tried his cell phone, left him a message.
Lexie: You know what that means. He's up to no good.
Bo: Now's not the time to clam up, DiMera. Please, tell us more about these two secrets.
Hope: You know I'm not going to let this go.
Stefano: I'm as tired of this as you two are. But, as you know, after your grandmother saved my son's life, I went to see her. I wanted to express my gratitude for what she did, of course, you know, and she said, no, that was not necessary, but I told her I would do everything in my power to pay her back for the debt I felt.
Hope: That's why you gave her the courtesy card we found.
Stefano: Yeah. That's also when she told me that she wanted nothing to do with me.
Bo: But she hung on to that card.
Stefano: Yes, I mean, that was a little funny to me too. Yes.
Hope: Go on.
Stefano: You know, your grandmother...was a pistol, as they say. You know, she and I...we didn't have very much in common, you know, but I did have a lot of respect for her. She was strong, she was honorable... [Chuckles] And, you know, when I think about it, she had a--she was a lot more clever than I ever imagined.
Abigail: You know why I'm upset?
Austin: Of course I do. You're a grown woman now. You're in college. You don't want to be treated like a kid anymore. I sincerely apologize.
Abigail: [Laughs] Well, apology accepted.
Austin: Good, good. Well, come on, give me the details on this modeling gig.
Abigail: I don't know too much about it yet, to be honest. But it's not even a sure thing. I mean, there's still a lot of stuff that we have to get worked out. But, hoping that everything goes well, there's going to be a lot of traveling involved.
Austin: Mm. Oh, you're gonna go to new York.
Abigail: And Europe. Part of the reason why I wanted to take the job. You know, I have so many friends over there that I haven't seen in...like, forever.
Austin: That's right. You know what, I forgot you were over there when we were there.
Austin: Well, you've seen a lot of the world already, haven't you?
Abigail: I told you...I'm much more mature than you realize.
Kayla: Oh, oh, there it went.
Kayla: Oh, well, thank you for not sticking your tongue out this time, much better.
Rafe: You're welcome.
Kayla: You know, you two are actually pretty convincing as prince Casper and princess Miranda. Look at that.
Carrie: Oh, my God.
Rafe: Great, cross that off my bucket list.
Kayla: Have you been practicing the dance?
Carrie: What dance?
Kayla: You know, the dance. Oh, come--you don't watch the show?
Carrie: Why would I watch a children's show?
Kayla: Well, you must watch the show.
Rafe: No. But I know they do something at the end of every episode, but... yeah, 'cause that damn music, it sticks in your head, you know? But, uh, no, I try to actually not watch the show.
Kayla: Well, it's the end of every episode. You know, it's Joey's favorite part. It's this grand ballroom dance.
Carrie: Oh, well, I don't know how to ballroom dance.
Rafe: Yeah, Sami says I have no rhythm.
Carrie: [Scoffs] That's coming from Sami. She played a tree in our kindergarten play because she couldn't move to the beat.
Rafe: Well, I'm sure Sydney's not going to expect us to do the dance.
Kayla: You wanna bet? You know, it's really very easy. It's so easy, you guys can learn it. I'm going to show you, okay. Look. Okay, Rafe, you stand here. Put your arm up, put this arm up, and then, Carrie, you're right here. Your arm goes here.
Kayla: Okay, hold that hand up a little bit more. Closer, closer, closer. Bend it, bend it.
Rafe: All right--
Kayla: Here. There. Now you're ready.
Carrie: [Mouthing] Okay.
EJ: Look at the smile on her face.
Nicole: Oh, my goodness, she loves being the center of attention, doesn't she?
EJ: She loves being with her family. That's why I'm going to win this election. I want my children to be proud of the DiMera name, not growing up ashamed of it like I did.
Nicole: Hey...I don't think you turned out so bad.
EJ: Really? I think I could have done a little bit better, don't you? I want them to have all the things that I didn't have growing up.
Nicole: Look, I know you're dedicated to making that happen, and I believe that you will, but EJ... [Sighs] Even if you do win this election, you could lose your sister as a result.
EJ: Nicole, that's not going to happen. Look, even if Lexie and I have some sort of fracture in our relationship for the moment because of this, she'll come back. She always does. Oh, my goodness, I left the camera in the other room.
Stefano: Alice Horton. She was no fool. And she never allowed anyone to be one with her. Anyway...a few years after I had given her my card, I went to see her again.
Hope: To ask for another favor?
Stefano: No, on the contrary, I had one for her.
Bo: You expect us to believe that?
Stefano: Well, that's up to you.
Hope: Go on.
Stefano: I had come across some information. It was on your family. I knew that it was something that she would never want anyone in public to know about, so I said to her I would keep it a secret, and that was one way I could pay off my debt to her.
Hope: [Smug laugh] Only she didn't see it that way, did she?
Stefano: No, she turned around and said she had something on me. Of course, at first, I thought it was some kind of a bluff, right, but...
Hope: It wasn't.
Bo: What did she have on you?
Stefano: That, I do not know. No, she never told me. So we were at a stalemate... until she came up with a very smart compromise.
Hope: The safe deposit box.
Carrie: [Squeaks] [Giggles]
Kayla: Oh, my gosh.
Kayla: Oh, no. Oh, no, I'm going to have to go.
Both: What, why?
Kayla: I'm going to go. You know what, it's the babysitter. You know, Joey hasn't been feeling very well. Now he has a fever, but--I don't even think I'm gonna be back for the party, but you guys are going to do so great. Really, you've got it. You're perfect.
Rafe: All right.
Carrie: I hope Joey feels better.
Rafe: Thank you.
Kayla: Good luck. You're awesome.
Rafe: We'll make you proud.
Kayla: I hope so.
Rafe: Okay. I didn't want to say anything, but this isn't that bad, is it?
Carrie: I know. I'm actually having fun. [Laughs]
Rafe: Or not.
Carrie: And I don't know what Sami's talking about. You're a wonderful dancer.
Rafe: No, no, I'm just trying to keep up with you. You're amazing. My partner is on fire.
Rafe: We should probably keep rehearsing.
Carrie: Good idea.
Jennifer: I think, um...I think the debate questions were just dropped off.
Abe: Nicole has them.
Jennifer: Yeah. She put them, um...in the top drawer of the cabinet with the statue on it.
Nicole: [Playful gasp]
Abe: It's now or never.
Stefano: Alice and I refused to reveal what we had on each other.
Bo: You didn't want to show your hand.
Stefano: No, and neither did she. So she suggested that we take what we had and put them in two separate envelopes...and lock them up in the box.
Hope: Very smart.
Stefano: With one caveat... that that box could never be opened unless we were there.
Hope: My grandmother never found out about what you knew about our family?
Stefano: No. And I have no idea what she had on me.
Bo: Possibilities are endless.
Stefano: When your grandmother passed away, I assumed that would be the end of it. If you two had left well enough alone, which you did not. So now we have to face something very real, and a very dangerous dilemma...for us all.
Carrie: [Giggling] [Gasps]
Carrie: [Laughing] Okay. I think we've, uh, almost got that down.
Rafe: Yep, yep. I agree with you. Think we got it. Yeah.
Nicole: Hey, sweetheart, this one's from me. You want to open it?
Lexie: You wanna help, Theo?
Nicole: Go for it. Theo, come on.
EJ: See? Look what a great time she's having. You happy you brought her now?
Will: You think this was fun? Just wait until my mom finds out she's here.
EJ: One...two...three. There we go.
Nicole: Here you go, honey.
EJ: Abraham...what are you doing out here?
Stefano: I was not bluffing when I told your grandmother that...what I found out should never be made public. And if I were you two, I would adhere to the same advice.
Hope: We'll decide that.
Stefano: Fine. I have done my part. Now...you can either leave sleeping dogs lie or you can waken the beast. The choice is yours. The choice is yours.
