Provided By Suzanne
Rafe: Hey. Hey.
Sami: Oh, hey, hey. Yeah, thanks for coming so soon.
Rafe: Yeah, well, your text said it was urgent.
Sami: Oh, uh...
Rafe: What's wrong?
Sami: Nothing's wrong. Uh, this is for you. We just have a lot to talk about, you know? We have to, um, get everything done, and we don't have a lot of time to do it. We just have to get everything perfect for Nick and Gabi's wedding.
Hope: What? Nick and Gabi... they're getting married?
Sami: [Nervous laugh]
Nick: You're happy about this, right?
Gabi: Are you kidding? I love you, Nick. I want a future with you so much. Look, it was-- it was a tough decision because I just felt like I was asking so much from you.
Nick: You didn't ask me to do anything.
Gabi: Well, you know what I mean. We haven't been together that long, and you're not just committed to me, you're promising to raise will's baby for the rest of your life. Are you sure you're ready to do that?
Sonny: Thinking about what you're gonna ask Santa for Christmas this year?
Will: No, I already got it.
Sonny: Will, I'm sorry.
Will: For what?
Sonny: You know what. Putting all that pressure on you about keeping Gabi's secret. It's like, now that I know that she's pregnant, I just feel like such a jerk.
Will: No, you're not a jerk. Trust me, you have nothing to apologize for.
Sonny: Look at you shivering.
Will: Well, not really, but it is freezing.
Sonny: Well, it's December.
Will: Oh... [Chuckles]
Sonny: Looks better on you anyway.
Will: I don't know. Now you're gonna be cold though.
Sonny: I think there's a few things we could do to warm up.
Sonny: Mm-hmm. Cup of coffee on the house?
Will: I don't know. I wouldn't want to take advantage.
Sonny: You'll get your turn. I just figure what's mine is yours, and what's yours is mine. The hang-ups, the bad habits, the secrets. All of it.
Jennifer: [Pained groans]
Daniel: Hang on, it's okay. It's her appendix. It's gonna burst. Okay, help me lift her. Help me lift her, quick. Come here, come here. Come on, it's okay.
Nicole: But the ferry-- it's leaving.
Daniel: No. No, it can't. No, she needs to be in a hospital now. It's okay. It's okay. Okay, Nicole? Nicole, you are gonna run and you are gonna catch that ferry. You're gonna catch it, and you run like your life depends on it. Go. Come on, it's okay. It's okay, Jen. Jen, shh. It's okay. Nick--Nick, go, go, go. Go! You can do this, okay? You can go. Go. Just go catch it. You can do it. Go. All right, it's okay, Jen. We are gonna get you help. We're gonna get you help.
Jennifer: What are we gonna do? Oh, what are we gonna do?
Daniel: It's all right.
Johnny: Great grandma!
Caroline: Oh, Johnny! Oh, boy. I have missed you.
Johnny: Me too.
Caroline: Where's your mommy?
Johnny: She's not here.
Caroline: Oh, well, who brought you?
Johnny: Daddy did.
Caroline: Oh. Oh...
Sami: I'm so sorry. I-I did not mean for you to overhear like that. I'm sure Nick wanted to tell you himself.
Hope: So it's true? Why are they getting married?
Rafe: I know. It seems very sudden.
Hope: Yes. Yes, it does. Sami, what's really going on here?
Rafe: You should probably talk to Nick.
Sami: But let me just say that I think they're super cute together, and that they're gonna be very happy.
Hope: What about you, Rafe? What do you think? What are your thoughts on this?
Nick: But, Gabi, this was my idea.
Gabi: I know, but--
Nick: And if you're thinking that I'm--I'm having second thoughts, don't even think about it. I want this. You want this. And will wants this, right? There is one thing that-- that I regret.
Nick: Well, when I asked you to marry me, I kinda made it sound like it was all about the baby.
Gabi: Well, isn't it?
Nick: No. I mean, the timing maybe, sure. But... there's just something I've always wanted to do.
Nick: Gabriella Josephina Hernandez, will you do me the honor of marrying me?
Jennifer: [Pained groans]
Daniel: Well, you're lucky.
Daniel: You're lucky I came to inventory the emergency medical supplies, so we have some drugs on hand here that will address the pain that you're experiencing.
Jennifer: Oh, gosh. That's wonderful.
Daniel: Yeah, but the only thing that's gonna take care of it long-term... is taking out your inflamed appendix.
Jennifer: Daniel, are you sure that's what it is?
Daniel: Well, do you still have your appendix?
Daniel: Okay. Well, then, I'm sure. But don't worry about it. It's a very, very simple surgery. We might even be able to do it arthroscopically. And you can be back on your feet in just a couple of days, okay?
Jennifer: Okay. That's great. That's really great.
Nicole: Daniel, I am so sorry. I ran as fast as I could. I even ran to the docks, and I waved to the ferry, but they didn't see me. And the next one isn't for--
Daniel: Okay, for four more hours.
Nicole: Yeah. Well, she-- she seems better.
Daniel: Yeah, yeah. Well, I gave her some pain meds to keep her comfortable until we do the surgery, but I don't have four hours.
Nicole: So what the hell are we gonna do?
Daniel: Well, we are gonna see if the Hortons believe in being prepared. That's what we're gonna do. All right, well, it looks like they pretty much have everything I need right here.
Nicole: Uh, yeah. Everything but an anesthesiologist, a nurse, an O.R., a surgeon. Daniel, your hands--you-- you can't.
Daniel: No, I have to. I have to. If Jennifer's appendix bursts, then she could die. I mean, this could be fatal. No, I am all she's got.
EJ: Hello, Caroline.
Caroline: You know, Eddie is in the kitchen making fingerprint cookies, and he was wishing that he had a taster to see if they turn out right.
Johnny: I can do it.
Caroline: Oh, I was hoping you might say that. Good.
EJ: Just remember, you need to leave a couple for the two of us.
Johnny: Okay, at least one each.
Caroline: Oh, thank you. It's right through the kitchen. Well...
EJ: Welcome home, Caroline.
Caroline: Oh, thank you. Thank you for bringing Johnny to see me. Please, sit down.
EJ: Thank you. I can tell you, Sydney is going to be so incredibly disappointed that she decided to take a late nap. She would have loved to have seen you.
Caroline: Well, you tell Sydney that she'll have plenty of time to spend with me. Weeks, months, maybe even years.
EJ: Good. Samantha told me you were back to your feisty self.
Caroline: Well, I've been given a chance in life, and I intend to make the best of it.
EJ: You always have.
Caroline: Well, my mother used to say, "the harder you work, the luckier you are." Did your father ever say that to you?
EJ: [Laughs] Uh, no, he did not.
Caroline: How is Stefano?
EJ: And why do you ask?
Caroline: Because you're thinking of him right now, aren't you?
Rafe: Well, I mean, they're-- they're kids, they're in love, and that's all that matters, right?
Hope: Yeah. Of course. I--[Sighs] They just started dating.
Hope: And Nick's still on parole, for God's sake. And what about Gabi? She's so young. How many real boyfriends has she actually-- uh-oh. Right?
Rafe: Yep, mm.
Rafe: Yeah, well, like I said, you'll be talking to Nick.
Hope: Yes. Yes, I will be talking to Nick. Uh, just so you know, Nick's past is in his past. He has a huge heart, and I'm sure he'll take very good care of your baby sister. Would you excuse me? I have something to take care of.
Sami: [Scoffs] Me and my big mouth.
Rafe: Hey, people were gonna find out anyway. And besides, I'm sure telling hope wasn't on Nick's list of top ten things he was looking forward to.
Sami: Yeah, so I totally just did him this huge favor.
Sami: Right. I'm sure. He hasn't even told his mom yet, has he? And she's on, like, the top of my call list. Oh, God.
Rafe: Call list? What list? What's this?
Sami: Flowers, caterers, reception, ceremony. You name it.
Rafe: Okay, hold on a second. Sami, when I said "could you please talk to my sister," I didn't mean that you had to plan her wedding.
Sami: Oh, someone has to do it, and I'm happy to.
Rafe: O-okay. Hold on a second. That's why you called me down here so urgently? So I could help you with the bouquets and the hors d'oeuvres? Huh? Is that--
Sami: You know your sister better than anyone, okay? And she has been dreaming about her special day since she was a little girl, and we are going to give it to her. So, Rafe Hernandez, you tell me everything I need to know.
Gabi: The answer's still yes.
Gabi: Of course.
Nick: It better be. Now, I should disclaim. This is when I would produce a ring, if I had one. But in the meantime, um...
Gabi: Okay... it's, um... what are the little black things?
Nick: Uh, it's carbon.
Nick: And the deal is, carbon's the building block of everything.
Gabi: Right. Life.
Nick: Yeah. And at the right temperature, and with the right conditions, and after enough time, carbon becomes a diamond.
Gabi: Oh, well, we are under some pressure.
Nick: Is it getting warm in here?
Gabi: Great, we're gonna have a diamond in no time.
Nick: Yeah, we are. I guarantee you, as soon as I start making some real money, I'm gonna buy you a ring.
Gabi: No, this is perfect. And it's special, just like you.
Will: You know, this time last year, I was right there, and everyone was over here singing deck the halls and kissing under the mistletoe. And I was hung over and miserable.
Sonny: [Sighs] Sorry to hear that.
Will: Ah, don't be. This year, I'm totally in the Christmas spirit.
Sonny: Me too.
Will: Although I don't think it'll feel like Christmas until we get a little snow, though.
Sonny: Are you kidding me? You should try Christmas in Dubai. It's, like, 100 degrees, and people are still singing jingle bells.
Will: That sounds awesome.
Sonny: You should try it sometime.
Will: You know, uh, one time, aunt Carrie and uncle Austin took me to the European markets for Christmas. It was so cool. So I remember thinking that I would go back with somebody I love. Interested?
Sonny: I can't wait.
Sonny: I just keep thinking of Nick and Gabi. You know, it's like here we are. Like, we're planning all this great stuff together, and they're gonna be tied down with this baby for the rest of their life.
Will: Well, you know, they seem really excited about it. You know, how bad could it be, really?
Sonny: It's not that bad... if you're 40. I mean, don't get me wrong. Like, I would love to have a family someday. I really do. But I just don't want to think about it for a long, long time.
Chad: Whew. What wouldn't you want to think about?
Jennifer: Daniel, it's gonna be okay.
Daniel: Yeah. Yes. Yes, it, uh--it is. It is, okay? In fact, when you wake up, you are gonna be one appendix lighter.
Jennifer: [Nervous laugh]
Daniel: And hopefully, you'll be feeling a hell of a lot better.
Jennifer: It's okay. It's all right.
Nicole: Okay, I got all the clean sheets and towels I could find. What else do you need?
Daniel: I need--I need you to, uh--I need you to sterilize these, okay? Nick?
Nicole: Uh, yeah, okay. That at least is-- one thing I know how to do is boil water.
Daniel: You can.
EJ: You're right. I have been thinking about my father recently. How did you know?
Caroline: Because Stefano has just looked death in the face and lived. Of course, it isn't the first time.
EJ: No, not by a long shot.
Caroline: Though, when you get older, you realize that no one is immortal. Not even Stefano DiMera.
Caroline: And I've come to realize that being angry at people is not good.
EJ: You, Caroline Brady, angry?
Caroline: Yes, me, Caroline Brady. No, it's really a waste. It's a sin.
EJ: Yeah, well, I think just about everybody in town was justified in being angry with my father.
Caroline: He's still your father. He's the only one you have. You know, when I see you with Johnny and Sydney, I know you would do anything for them.
EJ: I would.
Caroline: Well, the love you have for your children is something we have in common. No matter what the past, and whatever the future may bring.
EJ: Oh, did I tell you that Samantha and I are, uh-- we're working together now at countess Wilhelmina.
Caroline: No! Oh, well, maybe I forgot. No, I didn't forget that. I would--that's something I wouldn't forget.
EJ: Are you suggesting you don't approve?
Caroline: Well, we just can't choose our family, and sometimes we can't choose the people we love. You know, my memory is not what it was, but the past is as vivid as ever, and the mistakes that I made.
EJ: You made mistakes, did you?
Caroline: Plenty. Some people say Sami takes after me. Maybe they're right. Because I loved Shawn, and I loved victor. And Sami loves Rafe... and you.
EJ: That's quite an analogy.
Caroline: I didn't mean it as an insult. It would seem that victor has finally... turned his life around. Maybe you can too.
Rafe: I wish Ari were here. Gabi always said that Ari was gonna be her maid of honor.
Sami: What else did Gabi say?
Rafe: She said she wanted to wear a dress like that at her quinceanera-- and at her wedding. I don't think she expected to be pregnant. I'm not even sure she can have a wedding in a church, can she? That's like--
Sami: She can, okay? If I can, she can. Look, she wanted to wear a dress like this, and walk down the aisle looking like a princess, and she wanted to get married in a church, and have a priest bless the marriage... then don't you want to give her a wedding like that?
Rafe: Of course.
Sami: Okay, then. Then we're gonna do whatever it takes to make that happen.
Will: We weren't talking to you, Chad. Come on.
Chad: So in other words, it's about Gabi, right? Guess you didn't take my advice and tell will to stay away from that crazy bitch.
Sonny: Hey, did you ever think that-- no, hey, hey, hey, hey. Did you ever think that maybe you were wrong about Gabi?
Will: There is no maybe. He is wrong.
Chad: Well, maybe you should ask will why he's so protective of Gabi. I mean, what is it you're not telling us, will?
Nick: I have to admit, I didn't think the necklace was much until I saw it on you.
Gabi: Hey, what do you-- what do you think Caroline's gonna say when she finds out?
Nick: I'm not sure.
[Knock at door]
Gabi: Uh, who is it?
Hope: It's hope Brady. I'm looking for Nick.
Gabi: Uh, hi. Hey, come on in.
Hope: Oh, thank you. Nice to see you, Gabi.
Gabi: Nice to see you too.
Nick: Hope...what's up?
Hope: I heard you had some pretty big news. When were you planning on sharing it with me?
Ooh baby, looks like you need a little help there
Sami: Okay, so I'm gonna talk to Gabi about everything, and you're gonna go to the church to talk to father Tobias about... you know what.
Rafe: Will do.
Sami: Okay. All right. And this...this...
Rafe: Uh, Sami. Thanks. You know, I really appreciate everything that you are doing, and my sister, I'm sure, appreciates it that much more. And, uh, I know you're-- you're working really hard to make this special day really special for her.
Sami: I'm happy to do it for Gabi. I mean, I may not be good at the whole marriage thing, but you know, I like a beautiful wedding as much as the next person. Probably more.
Sami: So you'll call me later?
Sami: I mean about this and everything.
Rafe: Of course.
Sami: Good luck.
Rafe: Thank you.
Rafe: Take care.
Will: You're right, Chad. You don't know the whole story. But it's not my place, and it's not Sonny's place to tell you.
Chad: Whatever. I know Gabi, and I know whatever her story is, there's gonna be some guy in it who's not gonna have a very happy ending.
Sonny: You know what? Maybe you'll cut her some slack when it all comes out.
Chad: Sure thing. I'll do that.
Will: I'll catch up with you later, okay?
Chad: Gabi really has someone snowed.
Gabi: Hey, I'm gonna let you guys talk. I'll be back really soon, okay?
Hope: Bye. Thank you.
Gabi: No problem.
Nick: Hope, I'm really sorry that you had to hear this from someone besides me. I was gonna tell aunt Maggie tonight, and I just figured word would get out, you know?
Hope: Yeah. Oh, it did. It got out. Gabi's a lovely girl. She's beautiful, she's-- you just met. Isn't this a little fast?
Nick: She's pregnant.
Hope: That's--that's fast too.
Nick: Well, we didn't-- we didn't plan it. It just kind of happened.
Hope: Yeah, of course. How far along is she?
Nick: Uh, five-- five or six weeks. You know, I know that a lot of people don't believe in love at first sight, but I swear, as soon as I saw Gabi, I knew. I know that sounds corny.
Hope: No. That I understand.
Nick: Well, we just hope that the rest of the family is as happy about this as we are.
Sonny: I already told you, I don't want to hear it.
Chad: If you only knew what I knew about gab--
Sonny: For God's sake, Chad, then why don't you tell me? You know what I think? I think you're so bitter over losing Melanie that you're looking for someone to blame... besides the guy in the mirror.
Chad: You have no clue what you're talking about.
Sonny: You know what? I don't care. I am tired of hearing Gabi's name come out of your mouth. I don't want to hear it again.
Nicole: Cut here?
Daniel: Yep, right there. Nice. Four-by-four. Uh, gauze. Gauze. Any gauze to close. Yeah.
Nicole: Close? Y-you're done?
Daniel: It's a simple procedure.
Nicole: Yeah, well, not when you're in Alice's cabin with a sewing kit. Daniel, I'm no doctor, okay, but your hands and the incision and the sutures-- they were perfectly straight. How-- how did you do that?
Caroline: Here you are, dear.
Gabi: Thank you.
Gabi: You know, I just hate feeling like I'm a disappointment to my family. And I think of you as family.
Caroline: Likewise. Do you love Nick?
Gabi: Yes, I do.
Caroline: Well, then, marrying Nick is wonderful news. Is it an ideal way to bring a baby into the world? Well... you know, I've always believed that a baby is a blessing, no matter what.
Gabi: Thank you.
Caroline: You said something about disappointing your family. Did Rafe say something to you?
Gabi: Oh, no, no, no. He's overprotective, yeah, but I thought he was gonna rip Nick's head off when he found out. But actually, he's been wonderful. I'm really lucky to have him as a big brother.
Rafe: Whoa, what's up? What's going on, little buddy? How are you doing, huh? Where's your mo-- oh. Ah! Good to see you.
Nick: I'm not gonna screw up my life again. I mean, it's not like I need any incentive to stay out of prison, but being a husband and a father is-- it's what I've always wanted.
Hope: I know.
Nick: I never pictured it happening this way, but I'm happy. Gabi's happy.
Nick: So do I have your blessing?
Hope: Yeah. Of course. Yes, you... have my blessing.
Gabi: Oh. What is this?
Sami: I am here to help you plan your wedding.
Gabi: Oh, no, you really don't need to do that.
Sami: Oh, it's happening, Gabi, and I won't take no for an answer.
Nicole: Is she gonna be okay?
Daniel: She's stable. Fever's broken.
Nicole: Thank God.
Daniel: She's gonna need another dose of antibiotics.
Nicole: Where is it?
Daniel: It's in a vial in the cooler outside. I'll go get it, you just--
Nicole: No, no, no, you're exhausted. Stay here. J-just take a second. I'll get it.
Johnny: Can I go talk to Santa?
Rafe: Well, I don't see why not. Oh, you know what? Here.
Rafe: It's for Santa.
Rafe: What'd you give him, 100?
EJ: No, Rafe, I gave him a five. I'm not threatened by your relationship with my son.
Rafe: [Chuckles] Right. As long as I'm not with Sami. Isn't that it? But I guess you figure you got her right where you want her now.
EJ: I work with Samantha, okay? There is nothing more to it than that.
EJ: Look, as a matter of fact, we happen to work very well together.
Rafe: I'll bet.
Johnny: Santa, my little sister really wants a stroller for her doll. I'm worried.
Santa: What are you worried about, son?
Johnny: We sleep in a lot of different places, with a lot of different chimneys. How will you know where to bring it?
Will: I guess our baby bounces back and forth, like you said.
Caroline: I wouldn't fight it if I were you, Gabi.
Sami: [Laughs] Grandma!
Nick: Hey. What's up?
Gabi: Hey, uh, well, Sami told me right now that she wants to plan our wedding.
Gabi: Yeah, and I mean, it's a really nice thing for her to do, but I told her that, you know, she doesn't have to go through the trouble, because it's a lot of work.
Sami: Oh, it's no trouble at all. In fact, I'm glad to do it.
Gabi: Yeah, but--
Sami: No buts, okay? No arguments. Look, I know this isn't exactly how you imagined your marriage starting out, but, Gabi, I'm gonna give you the wedding of your dreams. I promise.
Gabi: O-okay. [Laughs]
Chad: [Sighs] I need you to listen to me, okay? It's about Gabi.
Sonny: I already told you, I don't--
Chad: Look, you think I'm picking on some poor, innocent little girl here. I'm gonna tell you exactly what she did, and when I'm done, I promise you you are going to hate her as much as I do.
Daniel: You miss your appendix?
Jennifer: [Chuckles] No.
Jennifer: I'm glad to have it gone. You did it. You did the surgery.
Daniel: You're gonna be fine.
Jennifer: [Sighs] Thank you. [Winces]
Daniel: What? What is it?
Jennifer: Why--why does it still hurt so much?
Rafe: Sami's smarter than you think, you know?
EJ: I happen to think she's extremely smart, Rafe. That's why I gave her the job at countess Wilhelmina.
Rafe: Right, yes, of course. Yep, no ulterior motives there whatsoever. Hey.
EJ: Hello! So how did your conversation with Santa go? Did you get it all sorted out?
Johnny: Yes, Santa said my letter must have gotten lost in the mail.
EJ: I told you.
Rafe: Government cutbacks, buddy.
Johnny: And he said his favorite cookies are sNickerdoodle. What's that?
EJ: SNickerdoodle, eh? Well, your mother has a sNickerdoodle cookie recipe that she got from your grandmother. Why don't we make that tomorrow. Would you like that?
EJ: Okay. Well, merry Christmas, Rafe. I hope Santa brings you everything you want. Come on.
Rafe: See you, Johnny.
Rafe: See you, bud.
Chad: I'm tired of being the bad guy here. I'm your business partner, but you take Gabi's side because will tells you to?
Sonny: I'm not taking sides.
Chad: You're my friend, Sonny. And what I'm about to tell you absolutely needs to stay between us.
Chad: Now, when I say that Gabi's an evil bitch, that is a huge understatement. Gabi is responsible for Melanie being kidnapped.
Sami: Okay, have you thought about the bridal party?
Gabi: Uh, no, not really.
Sami: Okay. Rafe's going to walk you down the aisle, right? And what about Abigail? She's your friend, she's your cousin. She'd be a great maid of honor.
Gabi: Yeah, if she wanted to, sure
Sami: Okay. Abigail. And, um, Allie adores you, and I think she'd be a beautiful flower girl. No pressure, but...
Gabi: Of course, yeah. No, this--this is going to be really nice.
Sami: It's gonna be amazing.
Nick: And all I have to do is show up on the big day in a tux, right?
Sami: Yes, that is your big job, but what about a best man?
Nick: Oh, well, you know what? The guy who's a good friend, uh, still has five years left to serve, so...
Sami: [Laughs] Are you--
Nick: No, I'm serious.
Sami: Right. So there has to be someone local, right?
Nick: Uh, well...
Caroline: Nick, here's your best man now.
Jennifer: [Pained groans]
Daniel: Hey. It's gonna be okay. Yeah, yeah, once we get you back to Salem, we'll get you-- we'll get you some better drugs.
Jennifer: Okay. Okay.
Daniel: Okay? Yeah. You know, for somebody who just went through major surgery under these conditions out here, you, um-- you--you look pretty good. Yeah.
Daniel: What? What hurts? Where does it hurt? Just tell me where.
Jennifer: My heart hurts.
Daniel: Your heart? No, no. I didn't go anywhere near your heart.
Jennifer: Yes, you did.
Daniel: Not this time, no.
Jennifer: Yes, you did. And you know what my heart says? What I feel for you. [Chuckles] And it's not what you think. It's not pity, Daniel. It's love. I love you, Daniel.
