Abe: Oh, Lex. Left. He wanted to stay with you, but Roman felt it was best for him to go home. EJ took him out of here.
Lexie: Abe? Abe--Abe was here.
Marlena: Abe is bringing the car around. I'm so sorry that I upset you, Lexie.
Lexie: No, no, no, it's not-- it's not your fault. Um, look, I know you wanted to keep my father in jail--
Marlena: We won't talk about that again.
Abe: Oh, Lex. Oh, Lex, thank God. Thank God. How you feeling?
Lexie: No, I'm better. I'm better.
Bo: Hey, come on. I'll help you get to the car, okay?
Abe: Yeah. Here you go.
Abe: Look, we'll call from the hospital.
Lexie: No, no, no. No hospital. I-- I want to go home. Okay?
Nicole: There are so many adorable outfits to choose from. Do I go with the seersucker overalls or the little smock dress? You know, I think the overalls will work either way, so I'll get those.
[Knock at door]
Nicole: Yay! He has risen from the dead! [Chuckles] Come in, come in, come in, come in. Hi.
Rafe: Hey. There's a little something there.
Nicole: Thank you. So did you-- did you get rid of the big bad wolf?
Rafe: Wish I could say we did, but, no. Stefano lives to torment us another day.
Nicole: What? I thought the plan was to put him away for good.
Rafe: Yeah, yeah. [Chuckles] Kind of backfired. Not only is Stefano free, but he's now being hailed as a hero by none other than the CIA.
Nicole: Please tell me that is a crappy joke.
Rafe: Do I look like I'm joking?
Nicole: I don't get it. How?
Rafe: It's not important. But what is important is you and the baby. How you doing? Okay? EJ been giving you a hard time?
Nicole: No, nothing I can't handle.
Nicole: Look, Rafe, you don't have to take care of us anymore, okay? You want to be with Carrie. And I am so happy for you. So don't worry about us, okay? Go be with Carrie.
Austin: You know, I think Kayla's feelings are gonna get hurt if you don't eat something.
Carrie: I'm trying.
Austin: Okay. I was just hoping that having some food would make you feel better.
Carrie: Me too.
[Cell phone ringing]
Austin: Oh, it's Billie. Mind if I...?
Carrie: Go ahead. I want to know how Stefano's adjusting to his jail cell.
Austin: Yeah, me too. Sis...
Bo: Everything we've done, everything we've been through still couldn't keep Stefano behind bars?
Roman: Yeah, letting that bastard walk out of here is among the toughest things I've ever had to do.
John: I thought we had him this time.
Bo: No wonder he looked so smug. He couldn't wait to spring it on us that he was working undercover for the CIA.
Marlena: And the audacity of calling it justice at work. What justice is that? Is the man ever going to be punished?
Carrie: Rafe, it's me. I need to talk to you. Love you.
Austin: Who was that?
Abe: You passed out.
Abe: I still think we should have gone straight to the hospital.
Lexie: Honey, honey, I'll be okay once I get some rest, all right? There was just so much going on at that police station-- you know, so many people. The room started spinning.
Celeste: What were you doing at the police station?
Abe: It's--it's a long story. I'll fill you in later.
Lexie: Abe's afraid I'll get upset if I talk about Father.
Celeste: You're shivering, Alexandra. I'll go get you a blanket.
Lexie: Thanks, Ma.
Abe: You know, sweetheart, I'd feel a lot better if you let a doctor check you out.
Abe: I know-- I know you're gonna say that you are one, but right now you're the patient.
Lexie: [Sighs] Okay... I'll tell you what. Let's compromise, okay? Why don't you call Daniel and see if he can come over.
Abe: Okay, that's a deal.
Lexie: But, sweetheart, it's not as if we don't know what's going on. I have a brain tumor. There's nothing that Daniel can really do for me. You know that. At best, I have a few months left. There's nothing anyone can do to change that. Okay?
Rafe: You're not getting rid of me that easily, Nicole. I'm not letting EJ find out that that's his baby. All right?
Nicole: Well, thank you for lying for me Rafe, but things are a little different now.
Rafe: Oh, because I'm going to be with Carrie?
Nicole: Yeah, kind of puts a wrench in our plan, don't you think?
Rafe: We'll figure it out.
Nicole: Okay, well, um... how did Austin take the news?
Rafe: Well, I'll let you know. Carrie should be breaking the news to him any minute now.
Nicole: Oh, wow.
Rafe: Yeah. I'm actually expecting her call.
Nicole: I don't know who I feel worse for--Carrie having to tell him or poor, clueless Austin. You know, he's just-- he's just so crazy in love with her.
Carrie: I was leaving a message for my mother to let her know that I was all right.
Austin: Yeah, she's probably been going through hell... thinking that you were dead. Did you tell her about Stefano?
Austin: That's good... because Billie was calling to tell us that Stefano was released from jail an hour ago.
Carrie: He was caught red-handed making an arms-trafficking deal. How could he get bail?
Austin: No bail-- all charges dismissed. Stefano DiMera's a free man.
Shane: So I spoke to my superiors, took it all the way to the top. Bottom line is there's nothing we can do about Stefano.
Hope: I'm sorry. It makes absolutely no sense. How is that possible?
Shane: Apparently, DiMera's work with the CIA helped roll up some pretty major arms rings, saved thousands of lives. And they are, and I quote, "indebted to him for his hard work."
Bo: Oh, my-- [Chuckles] The one time in his life he's on the side of the good guys.
John: And this immunity deal-- it's for real?
Shane: We can't even touch him for stealing the pension funds that EJ took out of your business.
Marlena: He planted a bomb in the house in which we were staying. He nearly killed us, and he's-- what, he's been given immunity for attempted murder?
Shane: Well, there's no hard evidence that Stefano was the one behind that bomb at the safe house.
Roman: Yeah, well, who else could it be?
Shane: That's not proof.
Hope: What about Agent Harmon? We know he was leaking information to Stefano. We'll force him to talk.
Shane: My superiors would rather we didn't tip him off to the fact we were onto him.
Bo: Yeah, he's a rat, but...
Bo: Even if we corner him, there's no guarantee he'll flip on DiMera.
Marlena: So all of us almost die, our family and friends are put through horrible grief, and that was for nothing?
John: That's about it, Doc. Well, folks, kind of looks like we're back to square one, doesn't it?
Nicole: Maybe I should call her "Saint Carrie."
Rafe: Yeah, I don't think that's necessary.
Nicole: Come on, I mean, she has to be a saint to be okay with you pretending that you're the father of my baby.
Rafe: Or maybe she just understands why you don't want your baby raised as a DiMera.
Nicole: Good point.
Nicole: Carrie is a Brady, and Stefano has tortured that family, well, more than just about anyone.
Rafe: Exactly. So she understands why you don't want to tell EJ the truth.
Nicole: Okay, but as long as you are sure she will keep the secret.
Rafe: I am sure. Don't you worry, okay? I promise.
Nicole: [Chuckles] You really are in love with her, aren't you?
Rafe: Ah, it's-- well, she's gorgeous. She's funny. She's...
Nicole: She's the complete opposite of her evil little sister. Sorry, it's true, right? Come on. Oh, my goodness. Sami is gonna freak out when she finds out that you and Carrie are really together. And you know what? If you happen to be there when all that happens, make sure you take notes, videos, pictures, because I want to see everything.
Rafe: You're bad, you know that?
Nicole: [Imitates evil laugh]
Rafe: You--you are bad.
Nicole: I know.
Rafe: [Imitates evil laugh]
Nicole: I know, I know. I do know that, yes, thank you. So it's a good thing that you found Pollyanna-- I'm sorry... [Clears throat] I mean Carrie. Otherwise you'd be stuck with me.
Roman: Okay, I'm gonna head over to Abe's.
Marlena: Please tell Lexie we said hello.
Roman: I will do that. Now, listen up, everybody. Don't let tonight get you down. It was a setback--that's all. We're not giving up-- far from it.
Shane: He's right, you know.
Hope: Perfect. We just gave Stefano the best anniversary present he ever could have hoped for.
Hope: 30 years ago this month, he began his reign of terror in Salem.
Marlena: It's been that long?
Hope: Crime after crime after crime against practically everyone we know.
Bo: Yeah, especially our families.
John: And barely served any jail time.
Marlena: That's not right. That's just not right.
Celeste: Theo is sleeping like an angel.
Lexie: Oh, goodness, I hate that I missed tucking him in.
Abe: Oh, that's probably Daniel. Excuse me.
Lexie: Did you read Theo a chapter from his choose your adventure book?
Celeste: Two. He even read a couple of pages himself.
Lexie: Oh, that's wonderful. I'll call his teacher in the morning and let her know.
Daniel: There she is.
Lexie: Daniel, I'm so sorry.
Daniel: No, don't you dare be sorry. I'm glad Abe called. So I heard you gave everyone a pretty good scare tonight.
Lexie: Ah... I fainted--no big deal.
Daniel: No big deal? You just fainted? Well, how you feeling now?
Lexie: Well, I'm not exactly ready to run a marathon, but I'm okay. [Clears throat] Honey, um, you know what I could really go for right now? Some of that ginger-carrot soup from the Mandalay.
Abe: Oh, yeah, yeah. You know what? I'll call--
Lexie: Um, that could take a while.
Abe: Uh, yeah. Oh, yeah, you're right. You're right. I'll go pick it up. Celeste, would you like to come with me?
Celeste: Oh, yes. Of course.
Abe: Okay, sweetheart. Mmm. See ya.
Daniel: How you really feeling?
Lexie: [Exhales deeply] Lousy. My headaches are getting worse. Every muscle in my body aches. I was feeling okay earlier, then all of a sudden, I-- I could barely make it into the house from the car, even with Abe's help. Daniel, I know my time is running out. Now... I can feel it.
Celeste: Stefano has more lives than an alley cat. How could they release him from prison when everyone knows he damn near killed six people?
Abe: Yeah, we know it, but we don't have any concrete proof.
Celeste: So, once again, my daughter's father outwits everyone.
Abe: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, yeah.
Celeste: Oh, I have very mixed feelings about this. But at least Alexandra can be at peace. It would have been so hard on her to see her father in prison. I want her last months to be free from stress and worry.
Abe: So do I. After everything he's done... she still cares about him.
Celeste: This must be hard for you, Abraham.
Abe: And for you... for you. Celeste, I'm about to lose the-- the love of my life. And it's... it's unbearable.
Celeste: I meant having to be supportive of your wife's feelings for her father when you despise him the way you do.
Abe: [Sighs] Yeah. Yeah. I do. I-I despise him. What he's done to her, it's-- it's unspeakable. It's--it's unforgivable.
Celeste: What--what are you talking about? What has Stefano done to Alexandra?
John: The old man's made it his life's work to destroy all of us.
Bo: Well, bright side-- he hasn't accomplished that yet.
John: Yeah, Bo, but this year is still young.
Bo: If it were up to DiMera, we'd all be dead.
Hope: That's why he has to be stopped... once and for all, no matter what it takes.
Rafe: You are not putting him in that. No. No.
Nicole: Why not? Persimmon is a completely neutral color. Besides, babies don't care what they're wearing.
Rafe: I thought you were trying not to ruin his life.
Nicole: You are being kind of pushy there, Rafey-Poo. He could very well be a she.
Rafe: Well, whatever. I don't think she's gonna want to wear that either.
Nicole: Well, pbbbt!
Rafe: It's true. Damn it, I had the ringer off.
Nicole: Oh, did Carrie call?
Rafe: Says she wants me to meet her right away.
Nicole: Oh. She must have told Austin she wanted a divorce.
Rafe: Just give me a second there, will ya?
Nicole: Fine, yeah, I'll give you a second. Go ahead--have a second.
Rafe: She's not picking up.
Nicole: Oh, my goodness. Why didn't you leave a message? Oh, really, would you just go find her already?
Rafe: I don't know where she is, okay? That's why.
Nicole: Well, I have an idea. Why don't you try her hotel room?
Rafe: Okay, yeah, except-- no, because I heard plates clinking in the background. That's why.
Nicole: Oh. Speaking of which, I happen to be getting a craving for that famous Brady clam chowder. Why don't we just go there?
Rafe: All right. Yes. Let's do it.
Nicole: Let's do it.
Carrie: You sure Billie had her facts straight?
Austin: Everything that you and the others went through was for nothing. Stefano's free.
Carrie: Nothing's turning out the way it was supposed to.
Austin: Well, she said they're not gonna give up. Sweetheart... you don't look so hot. I mean, are you sure you can't eat anything?
Carrie: Sorry, whatever appetite I had is gone. Maybe we should just go home.
Austin: Okay, now you want to go home. All right, we'll just have Kayla wrap it up.
Carrie: I'll go get the box.
Carrie: I'll be back.
Austin: Yeah. I'll get the bill.
Lexie: I'm right, aren't I?
Daniel: Your blood pressure is pretty low, yeah.
Lexie: After the stress I was under tonight, it should be through the roof. My body's shutting down. It's a matter of how many days I have left... not weeks or months.
Lexie: [Sighs] Don't tell Abe. Promise me.
Daniel: You don't have to carry this on your own. You know that--
Lexie: I'm not. I'm not. I am surrounded by wonderful, loving family and friends who would do anything to make my life as rich as possible. If they know... what little time I have left, they'll start worrying that every day could be the last day. They'd start treating me that way whether they meant to or not. But if they think I still have time, their hearts will be a little lighter. And, you know, we can laugh and enjoy our time together. That's what I want.
Daniel: You know, you're handling this with, uh-- with great strength and grace.
Lexie: [Sighs] Yeah. Well, I have no choice. [Chuckles]
Daniel: You kind of do.
Lexie: Don't give me too much credit, Daniel, okay? There are days when I don't want to get out of bed... days when I want to get in my car, turn the stereo on, and drive and drive until I crash into something. And there are days... [Cries, sniffles] There are a lot of days when I just want to scream at the top of my lungs... "this isn't fair! This isn't fair! Why me?" But then I... [Sniffles] I think... "oh, stop it, Lexie. Stop it."
Daniel: Hey, it's okay. You can.
Lexie: I think, "why not me?" Somebody's got to be that one in a hundred. Nobody offered me a free pass.
Daniel: How do you stay so strong?
Lexie: Theo. I don't want my little boy remembering me always crying... angry. So I try to keep it together for my baby... for my husband... for myself.
Daniel: Yeah. Hey, uh... if you ever get tired of being so brave, you call me. You call me, and you can kick and scream and yell and do whatever you want. You just let it all out... and I won't tell a soul... okay?
Daniel: Come here. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay.
Abe: Yeah, I blame Stefano for what happened at the police station tonight. When he's in a room, people get upset.
Celeste: I'll go see what's taking so long with our order.
Roman: Hey, I got your message.
Abe: Oh, good. Thank you. Daniel is with Lexie at the house, so I thought it would be better if we met here. So is that the report?
Roman: Yeah, yeah. Shane pulled some strings with Transit DPA.
Abe: You read it?
Roman: I did, and I found what you were looking for.
Roman: You were right. That tunnel where André kept Lexie prisoner all those years ago... still has traces of toxic gases.
Abe: I knew it. Lexie's dying because of her family. This is all Stefano's fault.
John: Seeing this in black and white just makes me sick.
Hope: What you and Marlena have survived-- what we've all survived... it's a miracle.
John: My entire existence-- nothing but a game to DiMera. I was just his pawn. Well, never again. I'm tired of it.
Shane: How tired exactly?
John: I am tired enough that I'm ready to do anything to get him out of our lives. And I do mean anything.
Carrie: I got the to-go box.
Austin: I was looking in your purse. Is it true? Are you pregnant?
Austin: [Chuckles] Oh, my God. Carrie, oh, my-- well, come here! My God, this is what you were trying to tell me! This is why you were feeling sick.
Carrie: Austin, Austin, Austin--
Austin: Ooh, ooh. Ooh, ooh. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. That's not helping, is it?
Austin: Carrie, I am so happy. Everybody... everybody, drinks on the house! Ow! I'm having a baby! We're having a baby! [Laughs]
Abe: You know, Lexie was-- she was trapped! Trapped in that Godforsaken tunnel for six months. Her--her doctor says that those poisonous toxins could be the cause of her brain tumor.
Roman: Yeah, but listen. Listen to me, okay, partner? Even if they are, that report can't conclusively connect Lexie's illness with those toxins in the tunnel. Plus, André is the one who held her there, not Stefano.
Abe: Stefano brought that psychopath to Salem. Andre was working for him. Lexie's death will be on his head. And God help me... I could kill him!
Roman: Hey, hey, don't you be talking like that, all right? Now, you calm down.
Abe: Calm down. Calm down? My wife is dying.
Roman: I understand that. Believe me, I do. And I know this is a tough time. But to go after Stefano right now, it's not gonna help anything or anybody, including Lexie.
Abe: All right. I'll sit on this... for a while.
Roman: Meaning what?
Abe: All bets are off once-- I am going to make sure... that my wife is the last of Stefano DiMera's victims.
Hope: Caroline, thank you so much again. Please tell Ciara we'll call her first thing in the morning. Kisses from daddy too. Okay. The little princess was already asleep. She sounds like she's having a good time.
Bo: Wish we could be there with her.
Hope: So do I. You realize, if Stefano had had his way, Ciara would have lost both her parents in that damn explosion.
Bo: Yeah. What he's put us through is bad enough, but our kids--
Hope: That bastard. He took our baby from us when he took Zack and gave him to Lexie to raise. We lost JT, and then we lost Zack.
Bo: Yeah. And if he hadn't told us that Chelsea was dead, we would have raised her, been with her. How different would our lives have been, hmm?
John: I ask myself that question every day.
Marlena: He took Eric and Sami's father away. He took me away. Created havoc with everybody's lives, and I am persuaded that my relationship with Sami was forever damaged by him.
Bo: The thing is, it's not going to end. And it's not just us. He's gonna go after our kids and our families over and over again until we do something to stop it.
Hope: Okay, so what do we do? How do we protect ourselves? How do we protect our families? How do we put an end to this?
Bo: Yeah. That's the big question.
Austin: And it's perfect timing. I mean, it's perfect timing. I've been out looking for houses because we can't really raise a baby in a hotel room, right? And, sweetheart, I found this little bungalow--
Carrie: Hey, hey, Austin, slow down, please, because these home pregnancy tests--they're not always accurate. And I need to take a blood test, make sure it's true and everything's okay.
Austin: [Chuckles] I've got a really good feeling about this. Oh, my God. And look who's here.
Nicole: Hey! Wow. Okay. He looks a little too happy for someone who's just been asked for a divorce. We should go say hi. Come on, let's go say hi.
Austin: [Chuckles] Wait, wait, wait. We've got some really, really good news.
Carrie: I don't think that we should say anything until we know for sure. Listen, let's...you know.
Austin: We're gonna have a baby. We're gonna have a baby. Carrie's pregnant.
Lexie: Mmm, just what I needed. Thanks, honey.
Abe: Well, you're welcome. How's she doing?
Daniel: Just look at her. You have to ask? All right, you know what? I got to get to the hospital.
Abe: I'll walk out with you. Thank you for coming by on such short notice.
Daniel: Well, you call me anytime, day or night, all right? And, uh, you know, if you ever need to talk, uh, I've been where you're at now.
Abe: Rebecca. How did you, uh... how'd you keep going... after?
Daniel: Just one day at a time. That's all any of us have anyway.
Abe: Thank you.
Lexie: Mom, have you seen my bucket list? I want to go over the things I have planned for tomorrow.
Abe: Hey, you know what, sweetheart? Why don't you just take a little bit of a break from that itinerary of yours? You know, just for a day, just so you can catch up on your rest.
Lexie: No, honey, I'll be fine after a good night's sleep. I don't want to miss a precious moment of this time we have left.
Roman: So everybody left?
Shane: Yeah. They were heading over to the coffee shop, still talking about how they were gonna bring DiMera down.
Roman: Well, I'm just as angry as they are about tonight's turn of events.
Shane: Yeah, I know. So am I. Did you give Abe that environmental report he wanted?
Roman: Yeah, I did, I did. I'm not sure it was a good idea. He is putting all the blame for Lexie's illness on her father.
Shane: You don't think he's gonna confront Stefano right away, do you?
Roman: I think I convinced him to wait till after... at any rate, I think, for sure, you and I need to keep quiet about this too.
Shane: What's the matter? You look worried.
Roman: [Sighs] Abe said he wanted to kill Stefano. I'm not sure it was an idle threat.
Shane: What, you're not saying-- you don't think Abe Carver's capable of murder, do you?
Roman: Of the man who he believes caused the death of his wife? You bet I do.
Bo: All right, so what's DiMera's next move?
Marlena: I think he's having a great, big laugh at our expense.
Bo: [Chuckles] Yeah... besides that. So he's got this coin that he's willing to kill for. What's he gonna do with it now?
Hope: We could still go to Italy, track down the jeweler who made the coin for Stefano's father.
John: I'm not sure that's gonna get us what we need. His obsession with that coin-- it... it seemed more personal than criminal, didn't it?
Hope: I know. I know, but... I hate that we're the ones waiting for him to make the next move.
John: You cold, honey?
Marlena: I've got such a bad feeling... as though Stefano was planning something... so horrible... so cruel that this time somebody really is going to die.
Lexie: Thank you, sweetheart.
Abe: For what?
Lexie: My afternoon in Paris. [Giggles] Ahh, it was magical.
Abe: Mmm. Not quite as magical as a stroll along the seine.
Lexie: Actually, this is better. Snuggling on the sofa, Mom and Theo upstairs... mmm, I feel so loved...
Abe: Because you are.
Lexie: So safe.
Abe: You are. Mmm.
Lexie: [Sighs] I wish... we could have danced forever.
Abe: So do I, my darling. So do I.
John: I don't want you to worry about anything, sweetheart. I won't let anything happen to you or yours.
Marlena: I know you mean that. I just can't help but think after today that Stefano is somehow invincible. We threw everything at him. He walked away unscathed.
Marlena: Maybe he really is not stoppable.
Bo: If he is stopped, it will not be because of our judicial system.
John: That kind of narrows down our options, doesn't it?
Hope: What do you mean?
John: I'm just saying that we're out of options. We're just gonna have to take care of DiMera ourselves.
Austin: Nicole, can you believe it? Can you believe it? Our kids are gonna be roughly the same age. And, Rafe! Rafe, man, our kids are gonna go to school together.
Nicole: Wow. That's so true. Uh, yeah. Congratulations. Yay.
Rafe: Yeah, that's great. Congratulations, you guys.
Carrie: I just found out, actually. I haven't had a chance to go to the doctor, so we don't know--
Austin: Well, we're pretty damn sure. But you know what? Isn't life funny, huh?
Austin: You're the two first people to know. I mean, we haven't even told our family yet.
Nicole: Uh, then you should get to it, then. Of course. And, Rafe, would you hate me if I suddenly don't want clam chowder anymore? I really want that roasted chicken and garlic mashed potatoes from the cafe. Yummy. Okay?
Rafe: Yeah, yeah. We can go there.
Austin: Look at that...
Austin: You have no appetite, and that's gonna be you in a couple of months. You're gonna want garlic mashed potatoes.
Nicole: It's crazy. Well, anyway, congrats again. You two take care, okay?
Austin: Thank you. Thank you. You too.
Nicole: Roasted potatoes, roasted chicken-- yay!
Austin: You didn't want me to say anything, did you?
Carrie: Well, I-- I just would like to know for sure.
Austin: No, I know, I know, sweetheart, but I am so excited. I don't even know-- you're not mad at me, are you?
Carrie: No. Of course not.
Austin: Because, Carrie, you have made me the happiest man on the planet. And I love you so much... so much.
