Rafe: I just got our new pamphlets and they look amazing. Oh, hi. Sorry, I didn't know anyone was here. It's a nice surp-- [Nervous chuckle] Is everything okay?
Carrie: Uh, Rafe, this is Mrs. Carlyle. She needs our help.
Rafe: Oh. Hi. Pleasure to meet you. What can we do for you?
Carlyle: I'm sorry I'm so emotional, I just never-- I just never thought I'd ever be in this situation.
Rafe: That's okay. Just take your time.
Carlyle: Well, as I was just telling Ms. Reed... my husband and I have been married almost 30 years, and we have two wonderful, successful children, Betsy and Jeffrey... a grandchild on the way.
Carlyle: These are supposed to be the best years of our lives, aren't they?
Rafe: One would hope.
Carlyle: I was sure they would be, but now-- now I think he's having an affair.
Abe: We have to drastically cut the red tape that is driving jobs out of Salem.
Jennifer: Okay, that's good. That is all good. I just have a couple points for you. Always smile. You know that. Whether you disagree or not. And just attack the idea, not the person.
Abe: Well, what if that person's EJ?
Jennifer: We are taking the high ground, remember?
Abe: Yeah, on camera. Unfortunately, behind the scenes it's a whole different story.
Jennifer: Abe, listen, I thought that we made peace with what we did.
Abe: Yeah, I thought so too. I have to admit that I still feel guilty about feeding EJ the fake debate questions.
Jennifer: Why? He is the one who wanted the questions in advance, so he will just be reaping what he's been sowing.
Jennifer: The reason that he's even leading right now is because he's been doing everything underhanded.
Abe: I know. I know, I know. I haven't forgotten he stole my jobs plan. I'm the one that should be getting the bump from the polls with the plan, not him.
Jennifer: Yes. And with the election so close, you have to win this debate, Abe. We have to make up for lost ground. It is our only hope for keeping EJ out of the mayor's office.
Abe: Well, I agree with you completely, but I-- you know, using these kinds of tactics just don't go down easily. And now, to make matters worse, I'm lying to my wife about it.
Jennifer: So what does that mean? Are you thinking about telling her the truth?
Abe: I can't. Lexie thinks I'm holding the moral high ground here. She has a higher opinion of me than I deserve.
Jennifer: That is not true, Abe.
Abe: You know, she has turned her back on her brother, and she's justified it to herself by thinking that... [Chuckles] I'm different...I'm better.
Jennifer: You are.
Abe: Well, Lexie would be upset.
Lexie: Upset about what?
Nicole: Admit it, EJ. You might be blackmailing Will, but he has something on you too.
EJ: Nicole, I told you, that's preposterous. Okay, now can we please stop this nonsense and spend our precious last moments actually preparing for the debate?
Nicole: It is not preposterous, EJ. In fact, I think it's true. Why else would you be lavishing some kid? A kid with a new apartment and a new car! Tell me, EJ, what the hell does Will Horton have on you?
Sami: Will, I want to know. I want to know why you're mad at me. I cannot stand this tension between us.
Will: You don't want to know, Mom. Because when--when you do-- when you find out what I know, things are never gonna be the same between us.
Sami: Will, I am your mother, and we have been through so much already. If you just tell me what it is, if you just tell me what you are feeling, we can find a way to heal, we can--
Will: No, Mom, that's never gonna happen! It's never gonna happen, not after what you've done!
Carlyle: Oh, thank you. Ed has always been the most wonderful husband and father. Little league coach, wonderful cook. He even irons.
Carrie: Sounds like you.
Carlyle: Here's a-- here's a recent picture.
Carrie: Very handsome.
Carlyle: I thought our marriage was perfect, or as-- as close to it as a couple can possibly get. I love him so much. I just never, ever would have thought he would...
Rafe: Well, why would you think that now?
Carlyle: Things have changed recently. He's--he's been working late all the time, and... he seems very...distant, secretive.
Rafe: Well, times are tough. Maybe he's worried about money or his job security.
Carlyle: That's what I told myself...until the other night.
Carrie: What happened the other night?
Carlyle: Ed was out of the room, and his cell phone started ringing. I looked at the caller I.D., and it was a woman named Julia. I was too afraid to answer, but... I wrote down the number. And I was hoping you could investigate for me. Find out who this is, why she's calling Ed, if there's more to it.
Rafe: We'll look into this right away.
Carlyle: And if, God forbid... would you be my divorce lawyer?
Carrie: Oh, Mrs. Carlyle, let's not get ahead of ourselves. Let's let Rafe do his job first, and we'll see if your husband's actually having an affair first.
Rafe: And don't worry, whatever happens, Carrie and I will help you all the way.
Carlyle: I'm so grateful. Thank you. Thank you so much.
Carrie: Of course.
Carlyle: No wonder you're so empathetic, you're married too.
Carrie: Oh, yeah.
Carlyle: Is this your husband?
[Rafe and Carrie chuckle]
Jennifer: Abe was just saying that, uh-- he was just upset because maybe EJ would pull some underhanded stunt at the debate today. That's all.
Lexie: Oh, yeah, well, you know, I don't put anything past my brother. But whatever he does will be in vain. You will win this debate and this election.
Abe: [Chuckles] Well, I wish I had my wife's confidence, huh?
Lexie: No, honey, you are a man of integrity, okay? I mean, your honesty, it just naturally shines through. The public will see that.
Abe: You know, your support just means everything to me.
Abe: I'd never be here if it weren't for you. Mmm. I hope you know how much I love you.
EJ: I see a lot of potential in William, darling. He could be a very useful ally.
Nicole: Some ally. He shot you, EJ, remember?
EJ: A youthful indiscretion. Look, we all make mistakes. Even I know that better than most. He can be useful, Nicole, because of who he is connected to. See, nobody's gonna suspect that he's with me. Nobody's gonna suspect that he's carrying out my plans.
Nicole: But that still doesn't explain... why you're so generous with him.
EJ: Because it puts him in my pocket, sweetheart. Hmm? Makes him easy to control.
Nicole: You look at me. You look me in my eyes and you swear to me that's all it is.
EJ: I swear. I swear. I swear! Okay... I swear to you.
Sami: Tell me. Tell me what you think that I have done.
Will: You know what, it's not-- it's not even worth it to get into this.
Sami: What do you mean?
Will: I'm moving out today. What's the point in having an argument if I never have to see you again if I don't want to?
Sami: Wait a second. That is not what's gonna happen here. We are a family.
Sami: And we may fight, and we may have problems, but we always find a way to stick together.
Will: Do not talk to me about family, Mom. You really... no idea why I might be upset with you? You have no clue at all?
Moderator: Ah, Nicole. It's so great to see you again.
Nicole: Yes, you too. Uh, this is EJ DiMera, our future mayor of Salem.
EJ: Very nice to meet you. Thank you for agreeing to be the moderator.
Moderator: Well, it's great to be here. Are you ready to get down to the issues?
Moderator: Well, I knew today was gonna be quite the showdown. Looks like I won't be disappointed.
EJ: Oh, I think it's going to be a very spirited debate. But don't worry, we'll play by the rules.
Moderator: Well, I'm glad to hear that. So I just have a few last-minute things to do. I'll see you on the podium.
EJ: I look forward to it.
Both: Thank you.
Nicole: Abe should just go home now.
Jennifer: Look at those two, so sure they have this race won.
EJ: We certainly have the advantage. There's no way we can lose.
Abe: There's no way EJ can win.
EJ: He has no idea what he's up against.
Abe: He has no idea what he's up against.
Carrie: No, Rafe's not my husband. He's my partner here.
Carlyle: Oh, I'm sorry. I don't know why I thought-- well, I better get going and let you two partners get to work on my case.
Rafe: [Chuckles] Okay. We'll let you know as soon as we have any information for you, Mrs. Carlyle.
Carrie: Mrs. Carlyle, try not to worry too much.
Carlyle: I'll do my best. Thank you.
Carrie: I'm sorry about that.
Rafe: No biggie.
Carrie: I don't know why she would think that you and I--
Rafe: Don't worry...partner. [Both chuckle] Yeah, I figure I could do a hell of a lot worse.
Sami: No! No, Will, I have no idea why you are mad at me.
Will: So...typical. Even when you demand that I tell you the truth... you refuse to be honest yourself.
Sami: God, I don't even know what's happened to you. I mean, I think about all the things that we have been through. All the things that you have managed to forgive me for. And it's never been like this.
Will: That's because this is different.
Sami: Obviously. And I don't understand why. I don't understand how we have managed to work through so many... so many fights... so many dark times, and... and the last couple years have been so amazing. We have been so close. And your love and your support mean-- they mean so much to me. And I just want that back, Will. I just want you back.
Will: Stop! Why is that my fault? You say that you can count on me, Mom. Why can't I count on you? Huh? Why do I always feel like I'm the adult in this relationship?
Sami: I am not blaming you. Okay? I know better than anyone the mistakes that I have made.
Will: Mistakes? Mom, you've made messes. Messes that I am tired of cleaning up. Look, you want to know why I'm so angry with you? It's because you keep destroying the only real family that I have ever had.
Moderator: I'd like to introduce our Incumbent Mayor, Mr. Abraham Carver.
[Cheers and applause]
Abe: Thank you.
Moderator: And his opponent, running for office for the first time, Mr. EJ DiMera.
[Cheers and applause]
Moderator: Today's topics will be jobs and the local economy. And since both candidates have waived opening statements, we'll get right to the first question. Mr. DiMera, there's been a lot of talk about using local Salem University as a means to bolster the town's sagging economy. In what way would you use the university to those ends? Mr. DiMera.
EJ: Thank you, uh-- thank you for the question. Um... the, uh-- the university is, as you all know, a vital part of Salem's... economic engine. It provides many jobs locally, and, in fact, could provide many more. And, logically, I think the thing to do would be to create a commission to, uh, work out how best to do that. Thank you.
Moderator: Mr. Carver, would you like to respond?
Abe: Yes, thank you. Today's economy demands quick and decisive action. We don't have time for commissions and studies. We need to expand the university right now. That brings jobs and construction to build the new campus buildings. And to fill those buildings, the university needs to increase enrollment, bringing students and professors to our town, which will help local businesses and grow our tax base. Now, we should also immediately enact incentives to keep those students here in Salem after they graduate... so they can become the job creators and the home owners of tomorrow.
[Cheers and applause]
Rafe: I'm trying to get an address for this Julia woman off her phone number.
Rafe: Yeah, I may have to stake out her place.
Carrie: I feel so bad for Mrs. Carlyle. To suddenly think that you don't know your husband, or that you might not even have a marriage.
Rafe: Yeah. Well, let's hope she's wrong.
Carrie: Yeah, let's hope she's wrong. Oh, jeez, is this what you expected, Rafe, when you took this job? Runaway cats and husbands?
Rafe: Well, adultery cases are usually what keeps P.I.ís going.
Carrie: It's so sad. I have to admit, Rafe, I still feel incredibly guilty about the fact that I had a hand in you losing your job at the force. I mean, if you hadn't been giving me information about John, we wouldn't be wondering if we could pay rent and stay afloat.
Rafe: Carrie... I do not regret what I did. Okay? John's family. What?
Carrie: Sometimes I wish that Austin could have been more like you. [Both laugh] That he could have acted with his heart, and that he would have been by my side a little bit more.
Rafe: I'm sure he was.
Carrie: Ever since John's case, Austin and I have been on opposite sides of everything. And we worked so hard to get where we are today. I never thought that... [Sighs]
Carrie: I just feel so incredibly sad...and lonely.
Rafe: Hey... you're not alone.
Sami: I love you. I love you and your brother and your sisters. I love you more than I love my own life.
Will: You're a liar, Mom! You're--you're lying to me! You don't-- you don't care about us. And you definitely don't love me. The only person you care about is yourself! What you have done is gonna tear our family apart.
Sami: I don't know what you're talking about.
Will: Oh, stop it, Mom! I saw you! I know what you did!
Will: I know what you did! I saw you having sex with EJ! Last night was amazing.
Sami: Will, no, okay. I don't know what you think you saw...
Will: Stop lying to me. Mom, you always lie to me. While the whole town was out searching for your son, you were having sex with EJ. And that's why we couldn't find you, Mom. And when I finally did... oh, my God, it makes me sick.
Sami: No, Will. No, it's not what you think. It didn't--
Will: Oh, really, Mom? 'Cause I know what I saw. You betrayed our family! And you betrayed Rafe! Do you know what you are?
Will: You're a whore. Mom, you are nothing but a whore!
Moderator: We'll now take a quick break and resume in a few minutes.
EJ: What the hell is going on up there?
Nicole: I don't--
EJ: I'm getting killed. I didn't know any of those questions.
Nicole: I don't know what happened, okay? Look, my contact at the moderator's office said that we had the right questions.
EJ: Your contact was obviously wrong.
Nicole: All right, you know what, it doesn't matter. You did fine.
EJ: I did fine?
EJ: I did fine? I'm spinning up there as best as I possibly can, listening to the Abe Carver Coronation. This guy's on point. He...you know, he's poised. It's like he has all of-- it's like he knew all the questions.
Nicole: What? No. No way. Honest Abe Carver? No. He wouldn't.
EJ: Think about it.
Lexie: Oh, honey, you did such a wonderful job.
Abe: Oh, thank you.
Jennifer: Great job. Perfect, Abe. Perfect
Abe: Thank you both so much.
Nicole: Oh, my God. You're right. That bastard!
EJ: Right. [Slams hand on table] He gets the real questions, and he gives us the fake ones.
Nicole: All right, you know what, you're not gonna let him get away with this. Listen to me, EJ. So what? So what if he's prepared for those questions? You can still win this, all right? You just stay focused. And you remember that you're doing this for your kids. And when you get back up there, you think of them, and you destroy Abe Carver.
Rafe: I understand what you're going through. I do. Because Sami and I, we used to be such a united front, always. When we were holed up in that safe house...it was literally us against the world.
Carrie: That's a great feeling.
Carrie: Knowing someone has your back.
Rafe: Yeah. Aside from the someone trying to kill us part, it was...
Carrie: Oh, well, you know what I meant.
Rafe: I do.
Carrie: It just-- it makes you feel like you can do anything.
Rafe: It does. It does, it-- I gotta tell you, that's what's so frustrating right now, because I feel like Sami and I are... just, we're worlds apart, and I have no idea why.
Carrie: I'm sorry to hear that.
Rafe: Yeah. I used to be able to look into her eyes, and I would know exactly what she was thinking. Not anymore. Uh-uh. I can't even believe I'm saying this, but part of me thinks maybe I'm better off not knowing.
Sami: Will, you listen to me. I didn't know what I was doing. I was--I was lost in my grief. I thought that Johnny was dead. I thought I was never gonna see my little boy again.
Will: So naturally your first instinct was to have sex with EJ.
Sami: No! Okay? No. It wasn't like that at all. It wasn't-- it's not like I wanted him, okay? I was heartbroken, and I was devastated, and I was-- I was just trying to... I don't know, numb the pain. Not have any of it be real. I can't even begin to explain to you what it feels like to think that you have lost your child.
Will: You're making excuses, Mom. Stop making excuses.
Sami: I am not doing that. Will, I know what I did is unforgivable.
Sami: I have felt the guilt and the regret with every breath I take since the moment that it happened. I will never forgive myself. I will never stop torturing myself for what I have done.
Will: Am I supposed to feel sorry for you after what you did to my family, and--and after what you did to Rafe?
Sami: Will... you're not gonna tell him, are you?
Will: You know, part of me would--would love... to tell him. To see him leave you, you know? See him walk out that door and never look back.
Sami: Please don't make this thing worse than it already is.
Will: Lucky for you I love my brother and I love my sisters. And I don't want them to lose out on the family that I always wanted. On the family that you were never able to give me. So it's your lucky day. I'm not gonna say anything for now.
Sami: Thank you.
Will: But just in case I haven't made myself completely clear, I hate you. And I always will. And I want you out of my life for good. We were skipping stones and now Iím letting go.
Sami: No, no. I am not gonna let you get rid of me that easily. I am your mother, and I love you, and I will always be a part of your life.
Will: How can you say that? You've never been there for me. You were too busy chasing after some guy who didn't love you to even care about how I was doing.
Sami: I do love you. Will, I love you so much.
Will: Really? Do you even know... what is happening to me?
Sami: No. No, I don't because you won't talk to me. Because--because you have been shutting me out. But that doesn't have to happen anymore. Now that everything is out in the open, we can talk about things. I can be there for you. I can make it different this time if you will just please give me one more chance, Will, I swear to God, I will--
Will: Too late, Mom. Too late. And thanks to EJ, I never have to live under this roof again and listen to your lies every day.
Sami: If you know what EJ and I did, then why are you working for him? You must hate him too.
Will: I do. I went to him, and I told him what I saw, but he surprised me. I was looking for a way to get out of Salem so I'd never have to see you again. But he gave me a way to stay here and-- and start my life over.
Sami: He turned you against me.
Will: No. You did that all on your own.
EJ: Of course, the topic of today's debate is the economy, but you know, I really feel that it's my duty to remind the voters that the job of Mayor of Salem comes with exacting moral standards.
Lexie: Is my brother seriously going to lecture us on morals?
EJ: Standards that your current mayor has not always been able to live up to in his personal life. There has been marital indiscretion. And whilst these personal failings do not in and of themselves disqualify him from the position, these are certainly factors that voters should be considering when they're deciding who to trust with the future of their city.
Abe: I would like to respond to my opponent's last statement, if I may.
Moderator: Of course, Mr. Mayor.
Abe: Thank you. Unlike my opponent, I do not think it's necessary to sully the integrity of this process or this office by resorting to personal attacks. In light of Mr. DiMera's last statement, I would like to point out the following-- the word "indiscretions" does not begin to describe the many past activities of Mr. DiMera, both personal and professional. And if Mr. DiMera would like to pursue this matter further, I would be very happy to provide details.
Rafe: Oh, hey, I think I got a lead on Julia.
Carrie: Really? What is it?
Rafe: Last name is Percy. Got an address.
Rafe: I'm going to check this out.
Carrie: Uh, wait. Do you mind if I go with you? I know I'm not a trained P.I., but I really want to help, and I have nothing else to do here.
Rafe: I would be more than happy to have you along.
Will: You should know better than anyone the hatred and the disgust that I feel for you right now.
Will: Carrying around a terrible secret? Knowing what a despicable person your own mother is? You know firsthand what that does to somebody, right?
Will: [Derisive laugh]
Sami: No, Will, what you think is happening here is not what's happening.
Will: What... history repeating itself? It seems that way to me.
Sami: What happened with me and EJ is nothing like what my mother did. It isn't like it at all!
Will: Yeah, you're right! Because it was worse! At least Grandma loved John! What you and EJ did... it was disgusting! It was filthy.
Sami: Will, I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry for what--
Sami: What I've done to you. I didn't mean to--
Will: Just stop, okay? You always said that what Grandma did ruined your life by tearing apart your family. And you just did the same thing, and you ruined mine!
Sami: No. No.
Will: Yes, mom! Congratulations. Congratulations. You've become what you always hated about your own mother.
Sami: No, I'm not gonna let-- no!
Will: Don't touch me!
Jennifer: You did it. You did it. You did so great.
Lexie: You were flawless, sweetheart.
Abe: Thank you both. Thank you both so much.
Lexie: But I could kill my brother for making this personal. Marital indiscretions? Really? You know, it's a good thing I wasn't up there. I wouldn't have been able to hold my tongue.
Abe: Well, it's tough, I'll give you that.
Lexie: Yeah, well, you did the right thing. What my brother said... it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter what he said, you out-performed him on every level.
Lexie: And I know why.
Lexie: Well, you stuck by your convictions. And when you do that, the answers just come easily. You speak from your heart. And you have the best heart of anyone I know.
Nicole: Listen, I still think you have a chance of pulling out a win. Okay, yeah, so what, we started a little rocky, but you really pulled through strong.
EJ: No, I know I did fine. I'm just trying to figure out how Abe managed to get those questions.
[Cell phone rings]
Nicole: It's the research department. The results for the first internet polls are coming through.
Jennifer: [Gasps] 67% of the voting public feels you won the debate.
[Women cheering, laughing]
Lexie: Abe, I knew that you could do it.
Jennifer: Whoo-hoo! Yay!
Carrie: I'm so not cut out for this line of work. When Mr. Carlyle showed up at Julia's office, I felt like someone punched me in the stomach. I thought for sure that they were having an affair.
Rafe: My God, I wish I could see the look on Mrs. Carlyle's face when she finds out that Julia Percy is the surprise-party planner for her 30th-anniversary party.
Carrie: Oh, it's so romantic, but probably can't be a surprise anymore.
Rafe: Yeah, well, it's still the best present she's ever got.
Carrie: Oh, God, Ed is still so in love with her, even after 30 years. I'm so glad things worked out like this.
Rafe: Right? You know, we did something really important today. We didn't put away a drug dealer or anything like that, but we saved a marriage. Feels pretty fantastic.
Carrie: And you know what, aside from the missing cats, this was our first real job. We actually got paid!
Rafe: Oh, my God, we did! We got paid!
Carrie: That's so-- well done.
Rafe: We did it.
Lexie: Well, the only thing to decide now is where to go celebrate.
Jennifer: It's on me.
Lexie: On you?
EJ: Well, congratulations, Abraham. It certainly appears you pulled off a real Victory.
Abe: Thank you, EJ.
EJ: You know, I must say your responses were very, uh, eloquent.
Nicole: Oh, I agree. You were amazing. If I didn't know any better, I'd think you had the debate questions ahead of time.
Jennifer: Are you insinuating that our candidate was cheating?
Nicole: Oh, no, no. You totally misunderstood me. I'm not insinuating. I'm outright accusing.
EJ: You knew the questions the moderator was going to ask. Didn't you?
Will. Good to see you again.
Guy: Yeah, you haven't been around. We were gonna ask Sonny what happened to you.
Will: Yeah, um, my internship has been keeping me crazy busy. You guys gonna hang out for a while?
Guy: Actually, we were about to head to a party. And you should come with us. Yeah. You busy now?
Will: Um...no. Uh, actually, I'm finally free.
