Nicole: So this is what the last mile feels like, right?
Rafe: Nicole, you're gonna get through this, all right?
Nicole: Hm? How? The DNA result will conclusively prove that EJ is the father of my child.
Rafe: There's a chance.
Nicole: Really, there's a--
Rafe: Yeah, well...
Nicole: When EJ finds out the truth, you know he's gonna take over the pregnancy--where, when, probably how this baby is born, the baby's name, what boarding school I want he or she to go to. I don't know--I will be lucky if I even have a little part of this child's life, Rafe.
Rafe: Nicole, you know what you need to do right now? You just need to calm down.
Nicole: Calm down, really?
Rafe: We're gonna take this one step at a time.
Nicole: Because this sweet baby, this miracle baby that I already love and adore with all my heart and soul, doesn't stand a chance. You get that, right?
Rafe: Nicole, let's just--
Nicole: Oh, God, Rafe, I can't do it, I can't go in there, I can't.
Rafe: Yes, you can. Listen to me. You have to do this. If you don't, EJ is gonna get suspicious, even more suspicious than he already is, and you know what's gonna happen then? Nothing good. All right? Come on.
Nicole: Uh...where's EJ? D-did he already come by to take his DNA test?
Daniel: No, he hasn't showed up yet.
Nicole: Are you serious? Do you think it's possible that maybe he changed his mind?
Daniel: Well, I wouldn't count on that.
Abe: EJ? What are you doing here? I thought you were with Lexie.
EJ: Oh, she was tired, so...
EJ: [Sighs] I don't know how you do it. I can't stop thinking about her. It just seems so incredibly unfair.
Abe: EJ...I know you love her.
EJ: It's funny, she's still thinking about everybody else. She asked me to do something for you, actually. And I certainly could have told her that I would. She would never know if I didn't keep my word, but...I couldn't lie to my sister, I'm sorry.
Stefano: You know, you know, you should sit down. You should not be on your feet so much. Here, sit, sit.
Stefano: Here, put this around you, so you don't catch any kind of breeze, all right?
Lexie: Thank you, thank you.
Stefano: Okay. That's better, no? [Chuckles]
Lexie: You look tired.
Stefano: Oh, boy.
Lexie: You've been getting enough sleep?
Stefano: [Sighs] Not too much.
Lexie: Because of me.
Lexie: You need to rest.
Stefano: You know what I need? I need to take care of my precious daughter, that's what I need. Make sure she gets everything that she should have, even maybe something that you've always wanted.
Lexie: Well, now that you ask...
Stefano: Whatever your heart desires.
Lexie: When I'm gone... don't use your sadness as an excuse for anger, okay? Let others see in you what I see. Your caring side, you know? Your loyalty, your capacity for love.
Stefano: Eh... I don't know, sweetheart. I just-- whew! I just don't know.
Lexie: Of course you do. You know, sometimes I think I know you better than you know yourself. Really, really. I know, for example, that you would do anything in this world to keep me from harm. You know, no matter how many times we've been at odds, I have always known that you would do anything to protect me.
Sami: Will, Rafe left me because I slept with EJ. None of that is your fault.
Will: I'm telling you that it was.
Sami: Well, you have to stop saying that. I mean, it's not like you told Rafe that you saw me sleep-- did you?
Will: I set it up so he would hear me tell someone else.
Sami: Why? I mean--I mean--I know how mad you were at me, but why would you do that? Why would you hurt Rafe? Why would you hurt our whole family like that?
Will: Stefano. Mom, Stefano made me do it.
Daniel: You are going to be okay, and so is your baby.
Nicole: You don't know the DiMeras like I do, Daniel. If the DiMeras want something they think is theirs, they can be totally ruthless. You--you get that, right?
Rafe: You know she's not exaggerating.
Nicole: If there were just some way... of keeping EJ from finding out.
Daniel: Some way. So do you want to ask me to switch the paternity test?
Nicole: I wasn't expecting you to say yes, okay? I'm just desperate. I'm just trying to put it out there. Oh, my God, I guess I just have to face the music, right? I have to deal with the fact that EJ's gonna find out this child I'm carrying is his.
EJ: You should know Alexandra asked me to step aside as mayor.
Abe: For me.
EJ: It's what she always wanted.
Abe: I know. And you said, "no way." Hey, look, look, don't even worry about it. I wouldn't have let you do it anyway. I-I know that--I know my wife thinks that, if I were mayor, I wouldn't have time to-- to grieve.
EJ: Yeah, she--she pretty much said as much.
Abe: As if anything could-- could help me get over losing the love of my life.
Lexie: I mean, one of the most valuable things that you've taught me is how important family is.
Stefano: Family? Yes.
Lexie: Yeah. You know, family are those people who know us the best and love us in spite of it. I know that you and EJ are going through a tough time right now, but...Father, he loves you. I want to die knowing that the people I love aren't at each other's throats, okay? I want everyone that I care about to be at peace, so promise me--promise me that you won't hurt the people I love any more than you would dream of hurting me.
Stefano: Heh. Of course I'll try, of course I will.
Lexie: You can do it. I know you can.
Sami: Since when do you work for Stefano?
Will: He tried several times to convince me that it was the right thing to do. And then he said, if I didn't do it, he'd go to the police.
Sami: With what?
Will: He knew that I shot EJ, not dad.
Sami: Oh, my God.
Will: And he said that he was gonna break up EJ and Nicole eventually, and that it would kill two birds with one stone.
Sami: And he didn't want his fingerprints on it, so he used you. Why didn't you come to me? Will, why--why didn't you come to me? I could have helped you!
Will: I wasn't talking to you! I didn't know what you would do!
Sami: I would've protected you. I would've helped you! Instead you were so angry at me that you break Rafe's heart, you hurt me, our whole family--
Will: I know! I didn't want to! He said that Rafe deserved to know! And I think he did. He said that, even if Rafe never found out about you and EJ, you would still, I mean, cheat on him again eventually. So I guess all that unconditional love is out the window.
Sami: No, no, it's not, okay? I love you, but that doesn't mean that I don't get to be angry about what you did. You should've come to me. You should've gone to EJ. I mean, you work for him. You trust him. You could've told him.
Will: I wanted to, but Stefano said it was the stupidest thing I could've done. He said I'd be sorry if I did.
Sami: [Sighs] You were under a lot of pressure.
Will: Well, I mean, I had to weigh all the risks, you know? And I figured that if it ever came out, I could explain it or try to, but I didn't know what was going to happen if I said no to Stefano.
Sami: Stefano's held things over me. And I did what he wanted, too.
Will: Anyway, I've got to go, 'cause I got to find EJ. I got to fix this.
Sami: Wait. Wait, Will. Hey, wait a second, you--you do have to talk to EJ, I understand that, but, you know, we have to finish talking. We have to work through this. We--
Will: I don't have time, Mom. I got to find EJ and I have to find Stefano.
Stefano: [Sighs] Something--heh, something's in my eye. [Sniffs] Here you are, sweetheart.
Lexie: Thank you.
Stefano: Look... I promise you that I will always look out for Theodore, always.
Lexie: And Abe.
Stefano: Oh, your husband. [Chuckles] You know he despises me. As far as he's concerned, it would be better if I was in prison right now.
Lexie: Yeah, well, nevertheless, he's the man I chose to spend the best part of my life with. He's the father of my beautiful son. So for my sake and for Theo's, promise me you will put your differences with Abe aside and try to get along with him,
Stefano: Look, I will try if he will.
Lexie: Well, I guess I can't ask for more than-- [Groans]
Stefano: What's the matter? Sweetheart? What's the matter?
Lexie: No, I'm okay.
Stefano: Come on, get up.
Lexie: No, no, it's just been a long day.
Stefano: No, look, you know, I've stayed too long. Come on.
Lexie: No, no, no, Father. You could never stay too long, okay? Don't be-- don't be sad, okay?
Stefano: Thank you, sweetheart. I'm sorry.
Lexie: For what?
Stefano: Sorry...for anything I've ever done...that hurt you. I'm so sorry. [Sighs]
Rafe: You know, there are things that I thought that we'd be able to do...but sometimes, things don't go the way you'd hoped, and...I'm sorry.
Nicole: Oh, please, don't you apologize.
Nicole: Look, you--keeping my baby away from EJ, that's my responsibility. It's not yours or anybody else's. I'm just gonna have to figure out a way to do it.
Daniel: I was wondering when you were gonna show up.
EJ: Well, please don't tell me you're all sitting around waiting for me.
Nicole: Actually, we were. Daniel was just filling us in on the procedure of getting a DNA test, so...
EJ: I'm not particularly interested in the science of it, Nicole. Can we just get going with this, please, so that she can stop lying?
Nicole: You're in a particularly foul mood today. Oh, I'm sorry. Lexie, right?
EJ: She's not dead, if that's what you're sort of getting at, but, yes, my sister is dying, so I'm a little bit upset at the moment, all right?
Nicole: I'm sorry.
EJ: No, you're not sorry, Nicole. You're not sorry. Because if you were sorry, you would not be adding to my grief by pretending that this one is the father of our child. Oh, Rafe, sorry, didn't get a chance to welcome you back from the dead. Good to see you again.
EJ: Can we get this show on the road, please?
Daniel: All right, I'll start with you first.
EJ: Thank you.
Daniel: Follow me to the exam room.
Nicole: EJ, wait.
Will: EJ was angry with me when he found out what happened, so I'm sure he confronted Stefano.
Sami: And what if he has?
Will: So I got to get my job back before things blow up.
Sami: No, no, wait a second! Before you talk to EJ, before we deal with Stefano, you and I have to work this out. This is the first time we've been talking in months. I can help you.
Will: Look, I'm sorry, but this doesn't have anything to do with you. It is my problem, so I will handle it.
Sami: For the record, it's my problem, too. What you did for Stefano cost me my marriage and--and I--
Will: Oh, God, really? Come on, so you're making this about you again.
Will: Yeah, you're making it about--
Sami: No, no, no, never mind that, never mind that. You focus on this and what you have to do. I can help you with Stefano. I know how to deal with him. I've been dealing with EJ and Stefano for a very long time.
Will: Okay. [Chuckles] I know how you help things with EJ, Mom, and as far as Stefano goes, nobody can deal with him. Ask the I.S.A., ask the Salem PD. I appreciate it. This has nothing to do with you.
Sami: Will! [Sighs]
Lexie: I don't want you to be alone.
Stefano: [Scoffs] I won't. Come on, let me help you up the stairs, all right?
Lexie: No, I'll be okay. Um, Father... I love you.
Stefano: God knows how much I love you. Come on now, take it easy now. Come on. All right?
Stefano: You okay?
Stefano: All right.
Stefano: Now, are you sure you don't want me to help you upstairs, huh?
EJ: Now what, Nikki?
Nicole: You know, maybe-- maybe we could do this some other time, in light of everything that's happening. You know, the baby's not gonna be born for a while and--
EJ: Do you know what you remind me of? See...you remind me of, like, a rat. You know, when they're stuck in a corner and there's no conceivable way out, and you see--behind their little eyes, you see these cogs kind of turning and their eyes are furtively moving around. They're trying to find some escape. Know what I mean? There's no escape, Nikki. [Snaps fingers] Oh, by the way... I made a decision about this child.
Nicole: And what's that?
EJ: Once this little DNA test here establishes that you're lying through your teeth about this kid's paternity... I'm gonna expose you being an unfit mother.
Rafe: You're a lunatic.
Daniel: Okay, look, this is a hospital, not a courtroom. Please don't upset my patient.
EJ: I have ample grounds for full custody, Nikki.
Rafe: Oh, yeah, what grounds?
EJ: What grounds? That would be based upon the fact that you tried to deny me my paternal rights.
Nicole: You can't do that, EJ. You ca--you can't.
EJ: Yes, I can. See, I'm gonna make sure this child grows up DiMera... in every sense of the word, sweetie. Let's get cracking, shall we?
Abe: Where's Lexie?
Stefano: She went up to lie down. I was just about ready to leave.
Abe: Well then, don't let me stop you.
Stefano: She asked me if you and I could try to get along.
Abe: I know that's what she would like.
Stefano: And I told her that I would try if you would.
Abe: You know, we both know you're the one costing her, her life. I wasn't gonna bring this up till after... but you're here right now, and it's all I think about. It gnaws at me...all day, 24 hours a day. Those toxins in the tunnel where Lexie was held... those poisonous gases that are causing the brain tumor in my wife...
Stefano: I know that you do not believe me, but I had no idea that André had her down there, and I had no idea that such a thing existed as toxic gas.
Abe: You know, you are as guilty as that monster was. You're guiltier, because you created him. You. You, and you alone, are responsible for Lexie's death sentence. You know what makes me sickest of all is how much she loves you.
Stefano: God knows how much I love her.
Abe: Oh, man, don't even-- don't even say the words, not after what I know what you did to her. You've committed so many atrocities no one can keep track of them, but this is the worst. This is a crime against the most innocent victim of all, your staunchest supporter, your own daughter.
Stefano: I don't know what I'm gonna do without her.
Abe: Well, maybe this is what they mean by "karma." Maybe this is the justice that so many of us have sought for you for so long. But for the rest of us who are losing her... oh, man, man, I don't know why I'm bothering. I mean, you couldn't possibly understand what losing her means to me!
Stefano: Of course I understand. I am losing her, too. And I have to live with the possibility that maybe some part of it is my fault.
Abe: Oh, my God.
Will: EJ, hey, I was looking all over for you.
EJ: It's not a good time.
Will: I know, but I need to tell you why I did what I did for Stefano.
EJ: I said it's no big deal.
Will: Can you just give me five minutes, please? Please? I want to say I'm sorry, and that I never should have caved when he threatened me.
EJ: I think it's a little late, don't you, to be reaching that conclusion.
Will: I know, but I tried to tell you that I wasn't thinking straight. He made it sound, to me, like I would be doing you a favor.
EJ: Do me a favor? By taking my wife?
Will: Look, Stefano threatened to go to the police if I didn't go along. He said that he would tell them that I shot you.
EJ: You should've come to me before you destroyed my life.
Will: I didn't have a choice.
EJ: Didn't have a choice? No choice? Life, William, is about the choices that you have and the choices that you make. You made the wrong choice. You should've come to me. I would've protected you. Instead, you let my father play you like some little puppet.
Will: I'm sorry.
Will: My keys?
EJ: Your keys.
EJ: The apartment, the car, the mansion--keys.
Will: What? Wh--why?
EJ: You don't seriously think you still have a job, do you?
Nicole: I mean, I-I've really never been so nervous in my life. I really hope this didn't do anything to hurt the baby.
Daniel: No, no, I can promise you, Nicole, there's virtually no risk at all.
Daniel: Yeah, the baby did not feel a thing.
Nicole: All right, I hope not.
Daniel: I'm not exactly sure why you wanted me to take your DNA, Rafe. It's not as if there's a real question of paternity, right?
Rafe: [Scoffs] No, no, it's just gonna look better if we all go through the motions. That way, EJ doesn't have a case for Nicole lying with premeditation. When we get the results back, we all can act shocked.
Nicole: Oh, gosh, you know what? I didn't even think about that. You're right. Thank you again.
Rafe: Right, which is why I'm still hoping you're gonna reconsider going through this alone.
Nicole: Yeah, I did... when I thought you were dead.
Rafe: Right, uh, well, sorry about that, but I'm back now.
Rafe: Right? Here I am.
Nicole: I know, but I have to be a big girl, too, right? I mean, this baby is gonna need a strong mother.
Daniel: Well, your child is one lucky baby.
Nicole: Thank you. That means a lot to me.
Daniel: Yeah, well, I'll just call the lab so they can send someone to pick up the samples.
Nicole: So how long do you think it will take?
Daniel: I don't know, it depends on how busy they are.
Nicole: [Chuckles] Guess it doesn't really matter, right? Because we already know what the answer is.
Rafe: We should get going.
Nicole: Yeah, okay.
Daniel: Yeah, you know what, let's--um, I'll walk you guys out. I need to see a patient.
Daniel: Come on. I got it, I got this.
Nicole: Thank you.
Daniel: Look, um... I'm sorry, Nic. I just know that, in situations like this, the truth has a way of coming out sooner or later.
Nicole: I guess you would know that, right? Been there, done that myself.
Daniel: Yeah. All right, I'll call you soon as I get the results.
Rafe: Thanks, Doc.
Rafe: And if you happen to change your mind...
Rafe: [Sighs] You all right? What do you say we get out of here and grab something to eat, hm? Sound good?
Nicole: You know, I've taken up enough of your day, and I really want to be alone.
Rafe: Okay. Okay, you got it. I'll see you soon.
Abe: Sweetheart, look, I'm sorry you had to hear that. I didn't want you to know.
Stefano: Alexandra, I'm sorry.
Abe: DiMera, you have caused enough damage. Get out.
Lexie: [Crying] Father.
Will: Look, I know better now. My loyalty is to you.
EJ: Keys. Now.
Will: Where am I supposed to go? I mean, what do I do?
EJ: Why don't you go and talk to my father? I think he owes you one. Of course, you'll have to overlook the fact that he did just try to kill half of your family, but, uh, I'm sure you'll figure a way around that. You'll find him laughing at how easy it was to manipulate you into doing all of his dirty work for him.
Will: Um, actually, wait. Uh, you asked me to get this for you.
[Knock at door]
Rafe: Hey. Yeah.
Sami: If you came here to tell me what a loser I am, you're gonna have to take a number.
Rafe: No, I was just hoping I could see the kids for a minute.
Sami: They're not here. They're on their play dates.
Rafe: Oh, okay. You all right?
Sami: Yeah, fantastic.
Rafe: You want to talk about it?
Sami: Rafe, you hate me.
Rafe: Mm, no, I don't. I mean, our marriage ended in a utter disaster, but I don't see why we can't have a civil conversation. So what's up?
Woman: Excuse me.
Nicole: Oh, okay. Um, hey, I hope you're not picking something up for Dr. Jonas.
Woman: Who are you?
Nicole: Oh, um, one of his patients, you know. I mean, I don't think this has anything to do with you, but he said something about having to take some samples down somewhere because someone took a long time getting up here. I don't know.
Woman: Since when is five minutes a long time? Great. Like I have all the time in the world to waste.
Nicole: Okay, okay. Okay.
Sami: So I didn't just lose you after what happened with EJ. I lost my son, too.
Rafe: Well, I doubt that.
Sami: When he was younger, we were practically best friends, and--and after everything that happened, we were so far apart. But today, I thought we were really making progress. I mean, you know, we were really talking about stuff, and then all of a sudden, he had to rush off and go see EJ because-- it just made me feel like EJ is more important to him than I am. What?
Rafe: Listen, I can see why EJ is Will's top priority right now, that's all.
Sami: How can you even say that?
Rafe: What do you mean, how can I say that? Because EJ has been his champion for months, hasn't he?
Sami: Yeah, but I would've been if he'd given me the chance.
Rafe: Well, sure, but I'm just telling you how he sees it.
Sami: Well, he shouldn't see it that way. I'm his mother and EJ's just his boss.
Rafe: Listen, I'm not taking sides here. I'm just suggesting that maybe you should ask yourself why things keep falling apart for you and the people you supposedly love.
Sami: Are we still talking about Will?
Rafe: I'm pretty much talking about everyone who's tried to love you.
Sami: Okay. It's been awesome catching up with you. Thank you so much for investing so much of your precious time--
Rafe: Are you serious right now? You asked me, okay? I'm just trying to give you an honest answer.
Sami: Yeah, and I pour my heart out to you, and what? That gets me nothing.
Rafe: Really, nothing? Okay.
Sami: So thank you and good-bye.
Rafe: Oh, great. It's been great.
Sami: I will tell the kids that you stopped by.
Rafe: Please do.
Will: Well... we'll see who has the last laugh, Stefano.
EJ: I was right. That son of a bitch is the reason my sister's dying.
Abe: Whoa, hey, sweetheart, I was just coming up. Uh...look, I'm sorry you had to hear that.
Lexie: Is my father gone?
Abe: You know you should be in bed. Come on, I'll help you up.
Lexie: No, no, not yet. How long have you known?
Abe: I've been certain for a few weeks. I only got the proof a couple days ago. Lexie, um...I don't know what to say.
Lexie: [Sniffling] Hold me. Just--just hold me.
Stefano: Why? [Sniffling] Why? Why, why, why, why, why? Dear God in heaven, why? [Sobbing]
