Lexie: She's a doctor as well.
Dr. Yu: Oh, a doctor.
Abe: Dr. Yu has graciously agreed to fly halfway around the world to consult on Lexie's case.
Celeste: Dr. Yu, is there anything you can do to help my daughter?
Lexie: Mom, we're still waiting for the test results to come back.
Dr. Yu: Dr. Carver, why don't I go check in with the lab?
Abe: Thank you, Doctor.
Celeste: Darling, are you all right?
Lexie: Yeah, yeah, I'm fine. I'm hopeful, you know? [Sighs] This is it. If anyone can help me, it's Dr. Yu.
Ian: Well, I think that was rather a successful meeting.
Lucas: Oh, really? 'Cause Madison's parting words were, "Over my dead body."
Kate: God, have you completely lost your mind? There is no way that Madison and I could work together as co-CEO’s. We would kill each other.
Lucas: She's right. They would.
Ian: And I thought you would be happy that I'd offered you a job.
Kate: Oh, really? Happy? Working with a shrew who tried to sabotage my company? Why would you ever think that I would want to align myself with her?
Ian: Well, I won't lie. I get a kick out of watching you two go at each other.
Kate: Oh, really? Well, so sorry, but I won't be the source of your personal entertainment. If you're so bored, rent a clown.
Ian: Listen to me. Listen to what I have to say. And then you will understand there is method to my madness.
EJ: Nicole, did you-- [Whispers] Did you hear what I said? I can't lose you.
Nicole: Oh, God, EJ. What don't you get? You have already lost me.
EJ: I don't accept that.
Nicole: Yes! Yes, EJ. If you do that, you will have me forever.
EJ: Don't shut me out, Nicole. You're carrying our child. You realize we are always going to be connected.
Nicole: You're not the father.
EJ: Okay. I can live with your denial, Nicole. What I can't live without is you.
Nicole: Stop, EJ. You just really need to stop.
EJ: Hey, Nicole, I love you. I love you. I need you. Can't you see that?
Nicole: Can't you see I don't care about you anymore?
Austin: Sami, would you trust me? Carrie is--she is over Rafe. She is.
Sami: You're sure about that?
Austin: Yes. Yes. What happened between them wasn't serious. It was just a little crush between two people that work together every day, and that is it.
Sami: What are you talking about? You can't seriously believe that.
Austin: Why not?
Sami: What do you mean? You're the one who said that you overheard her telling Rafe that she was falling in love with him. You--you know how that is. You know how Carrie is. She's always "following her heart".
Austin: She was just confused, Sami, and that's all that it was.
Sami: About what?
Austin: Me. Me. Our relationship. I mean, it's--come on. It's been a pretty rocky patch that we've been in.
Sami: No. No. No, it wasn't a rocky patch at all, all right? Nothing was going wrong between the two of you until she laid eyes on Rafe, and that's when you two started having problems.
Austin: I don't want to hear this right now, okay? She's committed to me. She's committed to making our marriage work. And honestly, Sami, Rafe is not even a factor in our relationship.
Sami: Okay. Okay. I hope you're right.
Rafe: I promised I wouldn't tell anyone about this. But you need to know.
Carrie: That's the second time you said that. What is it you want to tell me?
Rafe: All right, it's about my relationship with Nicole.
Carrie: I don't want to be put in the middle of that.
Rafe: No, no, no, you wouldn't be. But what I have to tell you... kind of changes everything. We could be together.
Nicole: EJ, please, you have to let me go.
EJ: I can't. Because if I don't have you, I don't have anything left.
Nicole: That is not true, okay? Your life is not that pathetic.
EJ: Yeah, my whole life is falling apart, Nicole. And maybe it's what I deserve.
Sami: I'm sorry. I shouldn't be so bitter with you about my sister.
Austin: I think I understand. There's, like, a tad bit of history there. You know what I--
Sami: Oh, just a little.
Austin: Between all of us, just a little bit, yeah.
Sami: But you know what? If you're happy, I'm happy for you.
Austin: Thank you.
Sami: Anytime. You know what? I'm gonna buy you a cup of coffee, make it up to you.
Austin: Wow. Wow. The big spender CEO is gonna buy me a cup of coffee, huh?
Sami: [Laughs] You know it. Yeah, I am. I'll maybe--
Austin: All right, get down.
Sami: Make it a double shot, if you're lucky. I'll-- did you know she was meeting with him?
Austin: No. When she left, she didn't tell me where she was going. She just said she had to run a couple of errands.
Sami: Well. Now we know who is at the top of her "to do" list.
Carrie: I can't believe I didn't realize this before. You and Nicole aren't in love, are you?
Rafe: No. No, we're not. It's--okay. But the truth, it's a little more complicated than that.
Carrie: Because of the baby.
Rafe: Yeah, in a way. Would you just listen?
Carrie: Wait, wait, wait. You have to give it time, Rafe.
Carrie: You and Nicole. The baby could be what changes everything.
Rafe: No. I mean, not in the way you're thinking. Yes, it would, but the baby-- the baby--
Austin: Rafe. Carrie. What's going on?
Lexie: Mom, please. Please.
Celeste: Would you like some water?
Lexie: No, no, I'm--I'm fine.
Cameron: Hey, Mom, why don't we give these two a break, maybe go get everyone some coffee?
Abe: Uh, you know, actually, Cameron, I could use some fresh air. I'll go with Celeste. Do you mind staying here with your sister?
Cameron: Sure, that's cool, if it's all right with Lexie.
Lexie: Yeah, yeah, great.
Abe: All right, I'll be back soon.
Lexie: Okay. Honey, thank you.
Lexie: Thank you.
Abe: I love you. I love you so much.
Lexie: Love you. [Sighs] I know--[Laughs tensely] I know she means well. It's just, when she hovers like that, just--ugh.
Cameron: It's hard to breathe.
Cameron: I get it. Sometimes you just need your own space.
Lexie: Yeah. Thanks for being here today.
Cameron: Thanks for asking me.
Lexie: [Clears throat] It's so strange that I never knew about you. My brother.
Cameron: [Snickers] From what I've heard, you had your hands full with the brother you did know.
Lexie: Oh, yeah. [Chuckles] But something tells me that you are nothing like EJ.
Cameron: Definitely more skilled with a scalpel.
Lexie: [Laughs] Well, I should hope so. [Sighs] I hope to get to know you better. To find out what else we have in common.
Cameron: Listen, once you kick this thing, we'll have all the time in the world. All right? We will hang, grab lunch. I'll chill with my little nephew.
Lexie: He already loves you. He can't stop talking about you.
Cameron: The feeling is mutual.
Lexie: Ah. Hmm. This tumor has no idea what it is up against. I'm not giving up, Cameron. Not when I have so much to live for.
Ian: You and Madison are both smart. You're talented. You're shrewd.
Lucas: They also can't stand to be in the same room with each other.
Ian: Yes, well, once they get over that, mad world will exceed all expectations.
Lucas: If they don't kill each other first, or the company.
Ian: Oh, I have the fullest confidence they'll get over their personal animosity and focus on what they have in common.
Kate: Oh, please do tell me that's not a veiled reference to yourself.
Ian: Of course not.
Kate: Ah. Good, because I can't possibly imagine what you could find in common between me and Madison.
Ian: Your shared hatred of Sami Brady.
Kate: Oh, really? That's supposed to be the motivating factor?
Ian: Well, as superficial as it may sound, sometimes an intense feeling like that can be very motivating.
Lucas: Just do me a favor and leave Sami out of this.
Kate: Lucas, don't start defending Sami. She doesn't deserve it.
Ian: And hard as it is for you to admit it, you and Madison are a lot alike.
Kate: Oh, really?
Ian: Yes. You pulled yourselves up from nowhere. You fought for everything that you have, and look what you've got. You're both pioneers in the cosmetics industry.
Kate: [Laughs] Madison is not a pioneer. She hasn't even gotten started.
Ian: But I know someplace, somewhere, you respect what she has accomplished.
Kate: Oh, do I? Because you know something? The way I see it, if we're both so much alike, then you don't need both of us. So fire Madison and make me the CEO of Mad World.
Nicole: EJ, why do you think your life is falling apart? Have you talked to your father?
EJ: I don't know if I would say I talked to him. [Sniffs] I'd describe it as more of a complete waste of time and energy.
Nicole: What happened?
EJ: Well, I confronted him about the-- [Quietly] confronted him about the fact that he rigged the election so that Abraham would win, and about the pension money that went missing.
Nicole: You mean the pension money that you stole from Basic Black. Okay, whatever. Look, what did he say?
EJ: Nothing. Didn't say anything at all. I mean, he made it very clear that I'm cut out of DiMera Enterprises.
Nicole: What? Why?
EJ: I have no idea. None whatsoever. Somehow, somewhere along the line, I must've done something that upset him.
Nicole: I'm sorry.
EJ: This is my punishment.
Nicole: I know how much your father's approval means to you. But, EJ, you can't-- you can't talk to me about this. What--what about your sister? Lexie would understand.
EJ: Lexie has enough on her plate right now.
Nicole: Okay, I'm sure she's angry with you about the election--
EJ: Please, I have never needed you as much as I need you right now.
Austin: Hi. I-I didn't realize when you said you had errands to run that--that you were meeting up with, uh-- with Rafe.
Carrie: We just had a few things to wrap up--no big deal. Yeah, no big deal.
Sami: So what were you talking about?
Rafe: [Chuckles] Yeah, I'm sorry. I don't see why that's any of your business.
Sami: Well, it's Austin's. And we were just walking up. We couldn't help but overhear you talking about a baby.
Carrie: Fine. Rafe was just telling me that he is excited about having a baby with Nicole.
Sami: Aww. Is that awkward for you? You know, since he was sleeping with her behind your back?
Carrie: Oh, come on.
Rafe: What's wrong with you?
Sami: I want to know what's wrong with her. Now who's the husband-stealing sister?
Carrie: Okay, you cheated on him and lied about it.
Sami: And he cheated on you and got Nicole pregnant, and yet you're still here, chasing after him. I mean, are you serious? You're gonna point the finger at me? Don't you think you should take a look in the mirror, Carrie?
EJ: [Clears throat] New place.
Nicole: Don't make yourself too comfortable. I'm still not sure this is a good idea that you're here.
EJ: I understand.
Nicole: Okay, well, if you're gonna talk, then talk. Otherwise--
EJ: [Clears throat] Look, Nicole, I've been doing a lot of thinking. Re-evaluating where I am in my life and how some of the choices that I've made have really hurt people that I love very much.
EJ: Nicole, I don't want to end up like my father. He's a bitter, lonely old man who's managed to push away everybody who ever had the audacity to love him. His life is empty. He has very few redeeming qualities.
Nicole: I would hardly describe your life as empty, EJ. You--you have your kids, your job. You're mayor. You--you keep Salem shiny and green, keeping your campaign promises. Health care, clean energy initiatives. I mean, who'd have thunk?
EJ: Do you understand what that did to my sister? I mean, going up against Abraham in the election? That took a real toll on her.
Nicole: She will get over it.
EJ: Yeah. [Clears throat] Nicole, I wouldn't admit this to anybody else... but that election campaign, running for mayor, destroyed my life.
Kate: You fire Madison. I'll sign on the dotted line right here and right now.
Ian: No. I won't do that. I'm not going to do that to Madison. Besides, it wouldn't be in the best interests of the company.
Kate: Okay. Then you just don't understand what an uncomfortable position you're putting me in.
Ian: Once you set aside your personal feelings, you'll recognize how positive and powerful this partnership could be.
Lucas: He's got a point, Mom. It's not like you have a lot of opportunities lined up, do you?
Kate: Okay, fine. With one condition.
Ian: I am not letting Madison go.
Kate: Forget about that. Forget about her. I want you to hire Lucas.
Kate: I need someone on my team that I can trust.
Ian: Consider it done.
Lucas: Wait, wait, wait. Wait, wait a minute. I'm not asking for a job here.
Kate: Sweetie, when Stefano dismantled Hearth and Home, you lost everything too.
Lucas: No, I didn't lose everything. I have a life and a fiancé in Hong Kong. Stop it.
Kate: Uh, are you gonna go back there?
Lucas: Yeah, I am. I am pretty soon, and I'll find work when I go back there. But staying in Salem right now is just not an option for me.
Kate: Okay, does Sami know that?
Lucas: Yes, of course she knows that.
Kate: All right, well, as much as I hate to see you go, I just want to make sure that she doesn't talk you into extending your stay again.
Lucas: She didn't talk me into anything. Stop with that, all right?
Kate: You need to put an ocean between you and that deceitful bitch as soon as possible.
Austin: You know what? Uh, maybe we should take a rain check on that cup of coffee.
Sami: Okay, good idea. I have to get back to work anyway.
Rafe: Work? You got another job?
Sami: Yeah. Yeah, I did. Stefano hired me as the new CEO of Countess Wilhelmina.
Carrie: What about Kate?
Sami: I guess she ticked him off, and he kicked her to the gutter, where she belongs.
Sami: Oh. Sorry.
Sami: Right, okay, fine. I will call you, okay? For the cup of coffee. [Laughs] I'm sorry.
Rafe: I should probably get going too.
Carrie: Okay, uh, yeah. I think we left everything in a good place for everyone.
Rafe: Yeah, I think so. I'll see you around, then.
Austin: Nothing's changed, has it? You still have feelings for Rafe.
Cameron: I almost said yes. I'm telling you, she had moves.
Lexie: Dr. Yu. Um, are those my test results? And?
Dr. Yu: After going over the results from both sets of scans, I'm sorry to say I agree with Dr. Jonas' assessment.
Lexie: The tumor's inoperable.
Abe: Uh, doctor, is... [Stammering] Uh, treatment-- is there anything else you can do?
Dr. Yu: I'm very sorry. Even with all the advances we've made, there's nothing I or anyone else can do.
Lexie: I'm going to die.
[Knock at door]
Sami: Hey, Lucas. What are you doing here?
Lucas: I came to give you the heads-up on something.
Sami: Okay. What's up?
Lucas: Ian McAllister just hired my mom as the new CEO of Mad World Cosmetics, with Madison.
Sami: What are you talking about? Is he nuts? Oh, my God, he thinks that's going to work out?
Lucas: Yeah, Sami, he does. You know why? Because they both hate you, that's why. He's rallying them up right now to take you down. I want to know what you're going to do about it.
Lucas: Nothing? Excuse me?
Sami: Look, the one person they hate more than me is each other.
Lucas: Don't be so sure about that.
Sami: Well, I am sure. I've worked with both of those crazy bitches, and I--
Lucas: Whoa, whoa, with the "bitches," come on.
Sami: You know what I mean. My point is that Madison and Kate are going to destroy each other. They're going to destroy that company, and you and I can sit back and watch the whole thing unfold.
Carrie: Let's go. Come on.
Austin: Carrie, come on. We both know the truth, okay? As much as I wish, I-- I wish you could just turn your feelings off for Rafe. [Sighs] I know that you have them. I know.
Carrie: But I love you, Austin, and whatever feelings I have for Rafe, they--they don't matter anymore.
Austin: But you have them.
Carrie: They'll go away, okay? It--it might take some time, but it'll happen.
Austin: [Laughs] [Sighs] How did this happen? I mean... I didn't realize it, you know? I-I didn't realize that this thing that you guys had was so--
Austin: That it was serious. I just saw the way that you looked at him, Carrie, and--
Carrie: I'm sorry.
Austin: No, no, no. Don't--don't tell me that you're sorry, because we both know that I can be patient. [Sighs] But if you are not gonna be able to get over Rafe, sweetheart... you gotta tell me.
Carrie: Austin, I...
Austin: Just tell me. Do we have a future, or is, uh, is Rafe always gonna be in the way?
Nicole: EJ, running for mayor didn't ruin your life. You had a clear goal to restore the DiMera name, to secure a future for your children so they would be proud of who they are, and you've done that.
EJ: Yeah. But at what cost?
Nicole: I don't know. You won. You tell me. What's the downside?
EJ: I alienated my sister. My plan to frame John Black for embezzlement backfired. I incited so much contempt for him that somebody tried to kill him.
Nicole: Why are you going back over all of this?
EJ: Because that's where it all began. It's why Johnny disappeared. That's why we thought he was dead.
Nicole: That's why you slept with Sami.
EJ: That's why I slept with Samantha, and that's why I lost you. I would give all of it up, all of it--the mayor's seat, the power, the prestige-- in a heartbeat if I could just have you back.
Nicole: EJ, this--
EJ: Please, if you could just find it in your heart just to trust me one more time, please.
Lexie: I need to know. Um... how much time do I have?
Lexie: Mom, please.
Dr. Yu: The most recent scan showed very aggressive growth.
Lexie: How long?
Dr. Yu: I'm afraid we're talking a matter of weeks.
Celeste: No! [Sobbing] No.
Dr. Yu: A few months at the most.
Dr. Yu: I'm very sorry, Dr. Carver.
Lexie: Thank you. [Sighs shakily] [Sniffles]
Abe: Sweetheart... I mean, we'll get a second opinion. We'll get a--we'll get a-- and then we'll get another opinion after that.
Lexie: No. No, no, it won't make a difference. Okay, um--[Sniffs] We have to start preparing, all right? We have to make plans. [Whispers] Oh, God. What are we gonna tell Theo? He's not gonna understand what's--what's happening, why I'm not there. I-I-- I can--I can't-- I can't leave my little boy.
Lexie: I can--I can't. I can't leave him. [Sobbing] I can't.
Ian: Hello, how are you, Amy? Ah, wonderful to see you.
Amy: You too, Ian, dashing and handsome as always.
Ian: Oh, merci, Madame. Kate, I'd like you to meet a very good friend of mine, Mademoiselle Amy Accord.
Kate: I know who you are. I am so thrilled to meet you. You're one of my favorite designers.
Amy: I thought your outfit looked familiar.
Kate: Oh, yes! What are you doing here?
Ian: I called in a favor. I asked Amy to come over from Paris and bring her recent collection so that you could choose a wardrobe.
Kate: You're not serious. [Stammers]
Ian: Well, you need one. Since Stefano threw you out so coldly, with nothing... I want to give you everything.
Kate: Well, you certainly know the way to a woman's heart. Oh.
Sami: So, um, how you dealing with all this?
Sami: Well, you know, the whole, like, job hunt and figuring out how you're gonna support yourself and your "lovah".
Lucas: Huh, that's a good one. Um, no. Well, you know, we, um-- we're okay. We're not totally broke. I still have some investments and some money that I saved.
Sami: What did she say when you told her what happened?
Lucas: I haven't really told her what happened yet. I'm waiting--I'm waiting for the right time. Don't worry about it. We'll be fine.
[Cell phone rings]
Lucas: Ah, you see that? Speaking of my beautiful bride-to-be. Hey, honey. We were just talking about you. Wait a minute. What's wrong? You sound upset.
Nicole: EJ, you think my trust is something that I can just give and take on a whim, but it's not. I can't.
EJ: I know.
Nicole: No, you don't know. Otherwise, you wouldn't keep asking me. God, EJ, don't--don't you think that I want to trust you? Don't you think I want to forgive you?
EJ: Do you really?
Nicole: Yes, I do. But you broke my heart. After you promised me that you would never do it again, EJ. And you can't fix that with an apology. You can't fix it ever. Don't--
EJ: Nicole, this baby-- our baby-- we can raise it together, okay? It can fix this for us.
Nicole: It's Rafe's baby, not your baby.
EJ: Look, I know it's not Rafe's baby, Nikki. Instinctively, I know that this child here was created out of love.
EJ: No. We can be a family. We can be the family that you've always wanted to have, Nicole.
Nicole: You need to leave, EJ.
EJ: With a white picket fence, the kids playing outside. We can be just like Tom and Alice Horton.
Nicole: That was a stupid dream that I never should've told you.
EJ: It's not a stupid dream. You know why it's not a stupid dream? Because it's my dream too, sweetheart. Just think about it. We can have Sydney and Johnny and this one. Just give me one more chance. Please.
Lucas: Yeah, okay. Well, bye.
Sami: So, uh, what happened?
Lucas: [Sighs] Come on. Don't act like you weren't eavesdropping. I could hear you through the door.
Sami: Well, I couldn't hear everything, so tell me. What's up?
Lucas: It's over. That's what's up.
Sami: What? What's over?
Lucas: My relationship. My--my engagement to Autumn is-- it's not happening anymore. She just broke up with me.
Lucas: I don't know. She said she was sick of waiting for me to come home, but, uh, I think it has something to do with maybe putting you first, putting you ahead of our future.
Sami: But you aren't doing that. You told her you were gonna go back, right? I mean, it was just 'cause things happened here. She has to understand that.
Lucas: Yeah, no, I told her that, okay? And--and she just didn't believe me, I guess.
Sami: Well, that's ridiculous. You know what, Lucas? You can fix this. You can go back to Hong Kong. You can sweep her off her feet. It'll be okay. It'll be fine.
Lucas: No, I can't do that, all right? She told me it wouldn't do any good. She told me not to bother. You know, I really thought she was the one, Sami. I thought that she was the one I was gonna spend the rest of my life with. And now it's over again. It's just done.
Carrie: I'm sorry, Austin. I never wanted this to happen.
Austin: You saying that-- you're saying that you want to be with, uh--
Carrie: With you. I want to be with you. Please--please don't give up on me, please.
Austin: I-- I'll never give up on you, Carrie. I never have. I love you too much.
Carrie: I love you too. Okay? I'm sorry that I ever made you doubt that.
Austin: But what about your feelings for Rafe? I mean, it's--
Carrie: They're nothing compared to what I feel for you. Okay?
Lexie: We have so little time left, Abe. What are we gonna do? [Exhales heavily]
Abe: What did I promise you? I promised you only-- only positive thoughts now.
Lexie: Yeah, I know, but--
Abe: And love, love. Just so much love. You-- you are my life, Lexie Carver. You hear me? I've never-- I've never loved anyone as much as I love you. And I don't--I don't care. I don't care how many doctors we see or what they say. I will never give up on you. Never.
Nicole: EJ, it's-- it's scary how sincere you sound right now. I-I mean, I think you actually believe what you're saying.
EJ: Nicole, you know me. You and Alexandra are the only people who've ever loved me unconditionally. And accepted me. Sweetheart, if I were to lose either one of you, it would destroy me.
Nicole: All right, just stop. Stop, okay? Just-- could you just give me a second to think about this, please? I can't believe I'm actually gonna say this, but... if you truly believe what you mean--
EJ: I do.
Nicole: What you're saying-- just let me finish. If you are willing to do anything to prove that I can trust you... then I have one condition, okay?
EJ: Okay. Just--just name it.
Nicole: Before I even agree of thinking of taking you back. I want us to leave Salem. And I want us to leave for good.
Celeste: I know what the tarot card said. But Alexandra cannot lose her life now. She's so young. And--and Theodore, and-- [Sobs] it's just too cruel.
Cameron: I know. I know, Mom. But the best thing you can do is not give up hope. Miracles happen all the time.
Celeste: You're a good son, Cameron. But you know her test results did not lie. And you said her doctor was the best of the best. And she tells us that Alexandra has...no hope of recovery.
Kate: What? Celeste. Tell me that I misheard. Lexie's not-- oh, my God. Does Stefano know?
Celeste: No, he doesn't.
Kate: He's going to be devastated. I'm going to tell Stefano.
Celeste: No, Kate! Please! Alexandra doesn't--
Sami: Any woman who doesn't appreciate what she has with you, she doesn't deserve you.
Lucas: Well, thank you. You know what? You're really something. You really are. You always seem to remind me that I can always count on you.
Sami: You know what? I have an idea. I've been thinking about it for a while. Maybe this isn't the right time, but, um--
Sami: I have a proposition for you.
EJ: You want to leave Salem? Why?
Nicole: Because. There are too many memories here, EJ. I can't rebuild a new life if I'm constantly reminded of the old one.
EJ: But--but where would we go?
Nicole: I don't care. Just as long as it's away from here, away from your father.
EJ: Johnny and Sydney.
Nicole: We could still see them. They could come to us. And you have to be willing to raise Rafe's child.
Nicole: If--if you truly mean what you say, that you would do anything, then show me how much you love me. Prove to me that I can trust you to always put me first.
EJ: By leaving Salem.
Nicole: Yes! Yes, EJ. If you do that, you will have me forever.
