Carrie: Hello. Mmm.
Carrie: Thank you for coming.
Marlena: Of course. Uh, you sounded upset on the phone.
Carrie: Yeah. I am upset. My life's a mess, and I don't know what to do about it.
Gina: Baccarat.. fine champagne... oh, how I have missed it.
John: I made a mistake, Gina. It's a bad idea. We shouldn't have come here. We should have gone straight for DiMera's egg tonight.
Gina: Patience, my love. We cannot afford to make mistakes. We're this close to getting what we have always wanted. John... to our freedom.
John: Freedom. And money. Once we sell that damn egg, we will have enough money to disappear and be free of Stefano forever.
Gina: Yes. The stakes were as high as they could possibly be. Which means we cannot be rash or impulsive. However, that being said, that does not mean we cannot have a little fun in the meantime.
John: Oh, please, define fun.
[Knock on door]
John: Here we go. Princess Gina.
Gina: You have good news for me?
John: I think so. I have a gentleman who's expressed interest in a private high-stakes game.
Gina: Hmm, that is good news. Please, show him in.
John: After you.
Gina: Thank you, John. "'Come into my parlor,' said the spider to the fly."
Lucas: [Clears throat] Autumn misses me.
Sami: Well, of course she does. Who wouldn't?
Lucas: And I miss her. And she wants me to come home as soon as I can.
Sami: Oh, my God. You can't leave.
Lucas: Really? Where'd that come from?
Sami: Well, I just mean... you can't go right now. I need you.
Lucas: You don't need me.
Sami: What are you talking about? Of course I do. What would you even say that?
Lucas: Because it's the truth. You don't need me--you have EJ.
Nicole: [Guffaws] Now there's a restaurant review. Or my obituary. "The condemned woman ate a hearty meal."
Rafe: Oh, come on. Wasn't that bad, was it?
Nicole: [Scoffs] Easy for you to say--you're not the one who's pregnant.
EJ: What? Ho. You're pregnant?
EJ: Are we having a-- are we having a-a baby?
EJ: I don't believe it.
Nicole: Okay, I don't know-- I don't know what you think you just heard.
EJ: I heard you say that you were pregnant.
Rafe: Careful what you say to her.
John: High-stakes game, Gina. Keep a clear head.
Gina: Do not worry. I assure you I shall be able to handle whomever it is that walks through that door.
Stefano: Ah. La Principessa... how lovely you look tonight. And my faithful pawn. You know, it's like old times.
Stefano: In the flesh. So...let the games begin.
Gina: And here I was... [Chuckles] Concerned I might be bored this evening.
Stefano: Oh, we certainly cannot have that, now can we? Especially since I know how you hate to be bored.
Gina: [Laughs] You know me so well.
Stefano: Oh, indeed. I certainly know how you spend your money I gave you to get my egg back.
Gina: Oh, Stefi. You would not begrudge me a little profit, would you?
John: All work and no play makes for a cranky princess.
Gina: Besides, you were not at all surprised to find us here. After all... you do have someone watching our every move, do you not?
Stefano: [Laughing] You do know me very well, yes. All right, look... [Clears throat] Since the games are to begin, I think perhaps it's time for us to, uh, choose the game that we want to play.
Gina: Baccarat-- always so challenging.
Stefano: Well, yes, I mean, it's very nice, but it's sort of passÚ, you know? The thing that everybody likes to play today is poker, no? And that little funny part of it--what is it called?-- Texas Hold 'Em.
Gina: Texas Hold 'Em?
Gina: Hmm, never heard of it. It sounds like fun.
Stefano: Well, yes, it may be fun for you, but it seems to be...unfair to play a game that you don't know anything about.
Gina: Do you not remember? I'm a quick learner. You do recall how much I love playing games, do you not?
Marlena: All righty. What's going on?
Carrie: You know what? I'm feeling pretty self-indulgent.
Marlena: I doubt that.
Carrie: It's just-- it's instinct to turn to you when things aren't going well. But I know how upset you are about John and Hope, and whatever is happening in Alamainia.
Marlena: Yes, well, I can't do anything about wringing my hands--that doesn't accomplish a thing.
Carrie: Well, I hope that you hear from John, and that he and Hope come home very soon. And that Uncle Bo will be okay. Whew! A lot has happened in the last few weeks.
Marlena: And I'm so glad you called. I'm glad to help you if I can.
Carrie: You sure? [Laughter]
Marlena: All righty, what's going on?
Carrie: I found out that Austin didn't cheat on me with Abigail. She lied. She lied to everyone.
EJ: Nikki, I-- are you all right? Is everything okay?
Rafe: You want me to make him leave?
Nicole: Doesn't make a difference now, does it?
EJ: Will you just-- if everything--if everything is okay, th--this is the most wonderful news. This is the luckiest baby in the world. You are going to be the most wonderful mother. Nikki--
EJ: You weren't going to tell me, were you?
Nicole: I just found out, EJ.
EJ: Okay. Have you seen a doctor?
Nicole: Yeah. Daniel.
EJ: Daniel, Daniel. Daniel's not an ob-gyn.
Nicole: I know Daniel is not an ob-gyn. He told me to see someone as soon as possible.
EJ: Just... see the best person, okay? The money doesn't matter.
EJ: Look, sweetheart... I know that you're worried. I--and you should be.
Sami: You're being ridiculous. I don't have EJ. I don't want anything to do with him.
Lucas: Except let him give you an apartment and talk to my mom--something I was supposed to do--about the whole corporate espionage thing.
Sami: He did that on his own. I didn't ask him to. He said he wanted to do it for the kids. And--and I had to take him up on the offer of the apartment. I don't want to stay at Rafe's apartment anymore, especially not after what Rafe did to me.
Lucas: Huh, what was that? What Rafe did to you? Come on.
Sami: You know what I mean. Look, the point is we're not talking about me and Rafe, anyway. We're talking about me and EJ. I'm gonna pay him back every penny of that back rent.
Lucas: That's so-- that's great, you know. That's so independent of you.
Sami: Why are you so upset about this? I didn't ask him to help me. He did this all on his own.
Lucas: Really. Why do you think he did that, Sami?
Sami: He told me why. Because he wants to make sure his kids have a place to stay.
Lucas: You just don't see it, do you? It's so obviously to me. Obviously he still has feelings for you!
Sami: Heh! You're right about that--he does still have feelings for me.
Sami: Anger, hate, resentment, maybe some loathing tossed in.
Lucas: You know what? Since you can't be honest with yourself, guess maybe I should be honest for you. It's so obviously to me that there are unresolved feelings between you and EJ.
Sami: You're crazy.
Lucas: No, you're crazy, because you keep denying it. And EJ's in denial too.
Sami: [Chuckles] Are you--
Gina: I'm enjoying this game.
John: Well, you've more than doubled your money already.
Stefano: My dear, remember, even if you are a little bit ahead right now, that in the very end...I win.
John: Well, now, if you really believe that... what do you say we up the stakes a little?
Marlena: She lied? Wow. It's hard to imagine Abigail lying about anything, especially anything that's hurtful.
Carrie: I don't think she set out to lie. One night when Austin and I had a really bad fight, he started drinking and he wound up at his office, with Abigail. And the next morning, when he woke up with her, he assumed they had-- and, well, she let him go on thinking the worst.
Marlena: Exemplary behavior-- from everyone.
Carrie: Mm-hmm. I was so furious with her when I found out what she had done. But I was still so disappointed in Austin.
Marlena: Of course you were.
Carrie: But you know what? The more I think about it, I realize the person that I'm most upset with is me.
Carrie: You see, I realize that, instead of trying to save my marriage, I used what Austin had done-- or what I thought he had done-- to justify feeling the way I felt about Rafe.
Marlena: Let me ask you something. Are you talking about the way you felt about Rafe, or the way you're feeling about Rafe now?
Rafe: Was that a threat, DiMera? 'Cause I really hope that it wasn't.
EJ: This is a private, personal conversation.
Rafe: It sounds like one of those, uh, strong-arm tactics to me, and I-I really hate those.
EJ: Would you please tell him to go away? Nikki, would you please tell him I'm not threatening you?
Rafe: You said she should be worried. How am I supposed to not take that as a threat to her?
EJ: About her medical history, okay? Listen, I understand how worried you are. I understand that this must be a really big strain on you, Nicole.
Rafe: [Laughs] Okay, I get it. And you think, by bringing it up, she's gonna worry less, is that it? Really?
Nicole: Okay, could you please both stop talking about me like I'm not here. I want Rafe here because he's my friend, and I don't... I don't think EJ is threatening me.
EJ: Thank you. God, listen, I wouldn't threaten you. We're going to do this together. And I'm going to be with you every single step of the way, sweetheart.
Nicole: Look, could--
Nicole: Could we just sit down, please? Could we act like grown-ups, in a public place? Look, EJ, I told you. I told you that I just found out myself. And you know, in no uncertain terms, that I was told I couldn't have another baby. I am worried, okay? I have a lot on my mind, I have a lot to process.
EJ: Look, I know, I know. I fully understand that.
Nicole: I have a lot of decisions to make-- personal decisions.
EJ: Absolutely, absolutely. But that's why I think you need to move back into the mansion.
EJ: It is the most logical thing to do.
Nicole: It's--it's the craziest thing to do. I'm not doing that.
EJ: Of course you are. Listen, I can--I can take care of you, I can make sure that you have everything that you need. I'm sorry, Nikki. End of discussion.
Sami: That's it? That's your theory? That EJ and I are secretly longing for each other. What, me shooting him in the head was just A... speed bump on the road to true love?
Lucas: I don't know. Maybe you just try to shoot people you're passionate about.
Sami: That's ridiculous! I don't buy that theory, that it's a thin line between love and hate. It's not. It's not a thin line at all! It's a huge line. It's a grand canyon of a line.
Lucas: Yeah, now you're protesting too much. Go ahead.
Sami: Well, I'm done I'm not protesting anymore, because this is stupid. We're not talking about it anymore.
Lucas: Okay, then don't talk about it. I want you to think. Think about it. Think about everything that's gone on between you two-- everything you've done together, to each other, and for each other. And then tell me if there isn't anything going on.
Stefano: Well... [Clears throat] My Dear Principessa, do you agree? Want to raise the stakes? Well, it seems I spent half my lifetime raising the stakes, so why not? I have a proposition. Hmm? Why don't you put everything you have all down on the table? I will match it. We will play one hand-- winner take all.
John: Actually, I had something a little more interesting than money in mind.
Carrie: You're right. I have to be honest. I do still have feelings for Rafe. I can't stop trying to... to think about being with him. And those feelings didn't go away when I found out that Austin didn't cheat on me. Or when Austin and I talked about trying to save our marriage.
Marlena: When you talked about trying to save your marriage?
Carrie: I know, that's not how it should be, but that's-- that's what it was. I mean... we went through sooo much to be together.
Marlena: The important thing, honey, is what's going on right now--how you feel right now. That's what matters.
Carrie: I have cried on your shoulder so many times.
Carrie: I cried because Sami interrupted our wedding with that horrible lie that Will was his son. I cried because Austin married Sami to bring Will home from Paris. I remember crying because Austin felt so guilty about Sami's car accident that he wouldn't leave her side.
Marlena: You've had so much to get over.
Carrie: I thought that I had, you know. When we were living in Switzerland, I didn't think about any of this-- ancient history. And it took us so long to find our way back together, and now-- I mean, can I--can I ever be happy with what I have? Am I always gonna be looking for the next best thing? What-- what's wrong with me?
Marlena: There is nothing wrong with you, sweetheart.
Carrie: Can I ask you something personal?
Marlena: I guess it depends on what it is.
Carrie: How did you find the courage to leave dad and be with John?
Nicole: I said...that I have some decisions to make. And I do. There is one decision that I have already made, and it stands, no matter what. And I have to be very clear with you, EJ... just because I am pregnant does not mean we are getting back together--ever.
EJ: [Clears throat]
John: If we win... we will return your Anastasia egg... when we're damn good and ready for a price to be negotiated.
Stefano: And if I win?
John: We'll get it for you tonight, and you don't owe us anything.
Stefano: All right. Deal the cards.
John: Not so fast.
EJ: I understand why you would say that. You have absolutely every right to be cautious, and you have no reason to trust me. But, Nikki, please... okay, it is really important that you're not making irrational and emotional decisions right now.
Nicole: Uh, excuse me, but you and I both know this is the most rational decision I could make. I would be insane to ever trust you again. I would be crazy to let you back in my life.
EJ: Oh, I really, really hope you're not going to try and keep my baby away from me, Nikki.
Sami: See what?
Lucas: Well, every time I mention EJ, you either spill something or go off into a stupid trance.
Sami: I wasn't thinking about EJ, for your information. I was thinking about you and what must have happened to you in the far east-- you came back dumb.
Lucas: Oh, there it is. The "best defense is a good offense" theory, right? Is that it?
Sami: You know what? All right, all right, let's say, for your sake, that I do have these ridiculous feelings for him--which I don't.
Sami: But even if I did, why would I be asking you to stay?
Lucas: I don't know. Maybe to protect you, save you from yourself, make sure that EJ doesn't get in your way, keep him away from you as much as I can-- that kind of thing.
Sami: Oh, why? 'Cause helpless little old me? I can't do it all by myself?
Lucas: You know what I feel like, with you, sometimes? I feel like the best friend in a werewolf movie. I feel like I have to keep you away from everybody before you hurt somebody. Keep you in a room, locked up, before the full moon comes out.
Sami: That is not funny! It's not!
Lucas: I'm not trying to be funny right now! I'm trying to tell you that you and EJ have unresolved feelings for each other! And if you continue to have those feelings, then it's gonna be impossible for you to move on with anybody else.
Sami: I hate you.
Lucas: I know you hate me, because I'm right, right? You screwed up your life with Rafe. I'm not gonna just stand by and watch you do it again. I'm not gonna watch you circle the drain again.
Sami: Oh, really? Oh, really. So you decide to tell me how much I need you? But then when the chips are down, you're gonna turn tail and run.
Stefano: Now what?
John: I'd like a different dealer. And a new, sealed deck of cards.
Stefano: You don't trust me?
John: No, I don't.
Stefano: Oh, you wound me. [Vigorous sigh] [Clears throat] Tell monsieur that we need a new dealer.
John: And please inform the new dealer, we'll be checking the seal on the deck of cards.
Stefano: Oh, good.
Stefano: Oh, my goodness. Here we were having such a lovely, nice little game. [Chuckles] Oh, boy, oh, boy, oh, boy, oh, boy, oh, boy. What ever happened to trust?
Carrie: I'm sorry. I shouldn't have asked you that.
Marlena: No, I don't mind. It's okay. I'm just trying to think what I want to say about it. You understand that our situations are not analogous? I fell in love with John when I thought he was Roman.
Carrie: I know. You didn't consciously try to betray your husband by falling for someone else.
Marlena: Betrayal--that's a big word. I didn't mean to make you feel guilty about this. I'm just trying to say that our situations are different. And I'm not sure that by discussing what happened with me, will be of any help in you solving your situation.
Carrie: I see.
Marlena: What I will tell you is that I was as determined as I hope you are to save my marriage. That I... I never wanted to hurt Roman.
Carrie: But he knew how you really felt. And he couldn't stand it and he left.
Carrie: And in the end, you had to follow your heart-- be with John.
Marlena: It was the most painful decision I ever had to make.
Carrie: Okay. So let me ask you this. If--if you had to do it all over again... would you make the same decision?
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
Stefano: You don't seem so cool, calm and collected as you want me to think, my Dear Principessa.
Gina: I could say the same about you, Stefi.
Gina: Thank you, darling.
Stefano: Ah. Sit.
Stefano: They're clean.
Marlena: I know that I did the right thing in choosing John. And I never ask myself "what if I had stayed with Roman?" Because I can't possibly know the answer to that.
Carrie: It's the "what if's" that I've been struggling with. Austin and I have put in so much time--so much love invested. But somehow, we keep letting things come between us. And if we had such a wonderful marriage, that wouldn't happen.
Marlena: A wonderful marriage takes an enormous amount of work.
Carrie: I know, but we've put in a lot of work to wind up here. And... I think about Rafe, and what an honest and loving man he is. And the thought of making myself walk away from that... I don't know what I should do. Please, Marlena, tell me what I should do.
Marlena: Sweetheart, I can't tell you what to do. Only you know what's in your heart. What I can tell you is just... be true to yourself. And listen to your heart.
Lucas: I am not turning my back on you.
Sami: That's exactly what you're doing--me and Will.
Lucas: No, I'm not. I flew halfway around the world to be here for you. I dropped everything, including my fiancÚ, to help you and Will. Help that obviously wasn't even wanted, 'cause you haven't listened to a word I've said since I've been here!
Sami: I do want your help! I don't want you to psychoanalyze me.
Lucas: And then, when my fiancÚ calls and tells me she wants me to come home, now you need me. Of course you need me now-- after you screwed up everything. You screwed up your own life, screwed up your life with Rafe, and your relationship with Will. Why? All because of EJ-- because you have unresolved feelings for EJ that you don't recogn--
Sami: Will you stop saying that?
Lucas: It's the truth. You know what? I'm not gonna yell in public. I'm not gonna do this with you anymore. I'm gonna leave, pay the bill, take my phone, and leave with my pride, my self-respect. And my self-esteem.
Sami: Lucas! Please don't go.
Lucas: I can't do this with you, all right? I can't do this anymore. I am not going to deal with you until you deal with EJ. And if anything bad happens to you, Sami, it's your own damn fault. You only have yourself to blame.
[Door opens, slams]
Nicole: Okay, let's just not get ahead of ourselves, EJ. You know, after last time... the doctor said I had almost no chance of carrying a baby to term.
EJ: Sweetheart, that's why I need to take care of you. You need to move back into the mansion.
Nicole: Oh, it is not my home--it's yours.
EJ: But it's my baby. Nicole... don't think you can keep me from my child. I promise you, I'm going to be a very important part of that child's life. Don't doubt that for a minute.
Rafe: Enough, all right? Craziness has gone on long enough.
EJ: Hernandez, this is none-- none--of your business.
Rafe: Actually, uh, it is my business. For the record, it's none of your business.
EJ: You are such an arrogant son of a bitch.
Rafe: It's my child. The baby's mine. I'm the father.
Dealer: Ace of diamonds.
Stefano: What do you say we make this a little more interesting?
John: We're listening.
Stefano: If the lovely Principessa here wins... I will leave you both alone... forever.
John: Hmm. And if you win? Then you will quit stalling, go get my egg, and bring it back to me tonight.
Gina: Accepted. I feel I cannot lose.
Stefano: Hmm. Well, we'll see about that. Deal the card.
[Card snaps from dealing shoe]
Caroline: How are you, dear?
Sami: Grandma, any new news about Uncle Bo?
Caroline: Nothing's changed. I just wish I knew how long it's gonna be before they take him out of that induced coma. But they say it's absolutely necessary for a complete recovery.
Sami: I just know it's really hard on you. The kids are praying for him, every night.
Caroline: Oh, please, thank them for me.
Sami: I will.
Caroline: I saw you and Lucas having what looked like a pretty intense conversation.
Sami: He drives me crazy.
Caroline: You mean, because he doesn't think or do exactly what you think he should do?
Sami: You're supposed to be on my side.
Sami: It's just, I think some of the things he was saying... are right.
Caroline: He was?
Sami: You know what? At least now I know what I have to do.
Caroline: You scare me when you say that.
Sami: I love you, Grandma.
Caroline: I love you too.
Caroline: God only knows what she's gonna do now.
Marlena: Oh, honey, I wish I could help you more. But you are the only one who knows what you're feeling.
Carrie: You know what?
Carrie: I have thought about this a lot. To death, in fact. And I know who I want to be with. I'm gonna go find him right now.
Marlena: All right. Well.
Marlena: Good luck, honey.
Carrie: Goodness. Thank you for everything.
Marlena: Of course, yeah. Uh, yeah. Wow.
EJ: No. There is no way that's your baby.
Rafe: [Laughs] No way? Uh, yeah, EJ, you saw us together yourself.
EJ: You told me nothing happened.
Rafe: Mmm. That's because Nicole's scared of how you'd react. Still is, actually. But I'm not.
EJ: You should be.
Rafe: Mm-mm. No. Anyway, just found out a couple days ago. We were actually just... discussing what we were gonna do.
EJ: He's lying, Nikki.
Nicole: No, he's not. Why do you think I finally filed those divorce papers? Why do you think he asked Sami to file as soon as possible?
Rafe: Knew she was scared of how you'd react, EJ. But I do think this is better. It's better now. It's out in the open.
Stefano: I think... ladies first.
Gina: Full house.
John: Queens over aces. Whew! Tough to beat.
Stefano: It is. But I have another full house... except this time, aces over kings. [Chuckles] Oh, my dear, dear lady, I'm afraid you were wrong. You see, you could lose. And you have. Now go get me my egg.
[Cell phone rings]
Roman: Yeah, Marlena. Got your message. You okay?
Marlena: You know, I've been--I've been calling John, and trying to reach John and Hope. I just--I can't get an answer and I'm worried. I think the deal went wrong. I need your help.
Roman: Well, you've got it. I'm at the pub, about to meet Abe. I'm thinking three heads might be better than two.
Marlena: Yeah, uh, that'd be great. I'll meet you there in 15 minutes.
Marlena: Roman, thank you.
Roman: Hey, what are friends for?
Marlena: Thank you.
Stefano: [Exhales] I, um, I want you to keep your chips, so the evening hasn't been a complete loss. And, uh, I expect to hear from you...very shortly.
Gina: Darling, that went exceptionally well, did it not?
John: That dealer was a real pro. Pretty much had an idea when it was gonna happen, but still, I almost missed it when he switched the deck.
Gina: Yes, well, Stefano only hires the best, does he not?
John: Including us. And I'm really enjoying the fact that he had no idea that tonight went on exactly as we planned it.
Stefano: Uh, have my driver bring the car around, all right? Thank you.
Gina: I shall send a message for him to meet me here.
John: Once he arrives, we'll shake DiMera's tail. We're gonna get that egg, we're gonna sell it, and then you and I are gonna disappear and live the life that we have dreamt of together.
Lucas: Yeah, I'll be back as soon as I book my flight. And I'll call you when I land. All right, I love you, and, uh, I can't wait to see you. I can't wait to get home. Okay.
Lucas: What? What is it now?
Sami: I thought about what you said, thought about it a lot, and... and you're right. I do have unresolved feelings.
Lucas: Yeah, see that? Finally you admit it.
Sami: Lucas, they're not for EJ. They're for you.
EJ: I don't know... what you two think you're trying to pull. But you're not going to get away with it.
Rafe: We're not pulling anything, EJ. I'm the father of Nicole's baby. So why don't you figure out a way to deal with it... and leave us the hell alone.
