EJ: Mm. [Gasps] [Exhales sharply] You forgot to include her. I love all of them, and you may not want to hear it, but I do love Samantha.
Abigail: No. No, it can't be like that. It didn't mean nothing.
Nick: Abigail. Oh. We've gotta stop meeting like this.
Sonny: You know, Gabi, I wanted to thank you for giving me and Will some privacy yesterday. That was very nice of you.
Gabi: Oh. It's also not a problem.
Sonny: Uh, you know, I was at the club when you got back last night. How did the--how'd it go with Nick when you and Sami went to find him?
Gabi: Oh, you mean after you ratted me out to her about the things I'd been saying about him?
Sonny: I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to go behind your back. It's just this--this thing with Nick--
Gabi: Is totally different.
Sonny: From what?
Gabi: From what it was. You obviously haven't heard the details, but I'm pretty sure I've been proven right that Nick has changed.
Roman: Have you heard from Eric yet?
Marlena: No, no, I got the message to meet him here, same as you did.
Roman: Huh. You know what this is about?
Marlena: Well, I've got lots of speculation, but, uh, nothing is quite certain except that I know it must be important. And there's Brady. Maybe he knows something. Brady?
Brady: Hi. Hi, Marlena. Uh, what's up?
Marlena: We were hoping you might know that.
Brady: [Sighs] What do you mean?
Marlena: Well, it's about your brother Eric. What's going on with him?
[Knock at door]
Eric: Daniel, Eric.
Eric: I'm sorry it's so early.
Nicole: Hey, it's okay. Come in. I've--I've already been up and about. Um, Daniel's still at the hospital. He had to work through the night.
Eric: Oh, right, yeah.
Nicole: I was expecting to hear from you before now.
Eric: Right, well, I-I was up most of the night talking with Father Matt and the bishop, explaining how you and Daniel were trying to collect evidence on Chyka that would--that would clear me, and how he got away before you could prove that Chyka had done it. And then I told them that I'd decided to resign.
Nicole: How'd that go?
Eric: They asked me to wait.
Sami: I had Harold send up a power breakfast to help you regain your strength...
Sami: After last night, so--
EJ: Let's forget about breakfast.
EJ: Where are the kids?
Sami: Up and off to school. So it's okay for you to stay in bed a little while longer.
EJ: It's better than okay. Especially when you're in a bed you haven't been in for a long time and you've missed. A lot.
Stefano: Abraham. What a surprise.
Abe: Harold let me in. No, no, don't get up.
Stefano: [Clears throat] I wasn't going to. So... to what do I owe the honor of this surprise?
Abe: I was on my way to the station, and--
Stefano: Uh-oh. Don't tell me. I hate the way this is going to end.
Abe: This isn't official business. I'm here to thank you, Stefano.
Sami: [Moaning softly] It wasn't easy keeping you out of this bed.
EJ: It wasn't easy staying out of it.
EJ: But I'm back. That's what matters.
Sami: Yeah. It is.
EJ: Can I tell you something?
EJ: I think we're stronger for the struggle.
Sami: You really believe that?
EJ: Let me show you how much.
Nick: Uh, can I get you a coffee?
Abigail: Okay. Yeah, sure.
Nick: Cool. Was--was something bothering you just now? Just 'cause it kind of looked like it.
Brady: I, uh, I haven't seen Eric since he got back from his retreat.
Marlena: Oh. I thought when we saw you here that maybe you'd gotten the same text we had.
Brady: Uh, no. No. Private party for two, I guess.
Marlena: Well, he said it was important.
Brady: I don't know. I don't have a clue. I don't know what's going on, so I guess you'll just have to ask him when you see him.
Marlena: Brady. Aren't you curious what your brother has to say?
Brady: In a word? No.
Nicole: If the church leaders asked you to wait, Eric, you should probably respect that.
Eric: I respect their generosity... in allowing me to have some time. But it was not an order.
Nicole: What are you saying?
Eric: [Exhales] Well, I went with a definite opinion. You know, I even asked God to show me a sign... if for me to remain a priest was his will, and that sign-- it never came. Nicole, despite the counsel of the bishop and Father Matt... I decided to resign from the church. Effective immediately.
Sami: Don't you, um, don't you want to know what changed last night?
EJ: Is it because I'm irresistible?
Sami: Well, obviously. There's that.
EJ: Okay, that's what I thought.
Sami: Actually, it was Will.
EJ: William? Your son persuaded you to take me back?
Sami: My son is getting married.
EJ: What? Really? Oh, my--ha! That is fantastic. Oh, I'm so happy. I'm so happy!
Sami: I mean, when he said yes to Sonny's proposal-- oh, you should've heard him talking about how--how you can't take love for granted, how you can't waste a second of it. Yeah, he's my son. Of all people, he got to me, and I left him realizing that we had wasted too much time already.
EJ: Well, I'm going to get the two of them the most extravagant wedding gift you can possibly imagine. But no double wedding.
Sami: No. No double wedding.
EJ: Okay, good.
Sami: With two family weddings looming, there are a lot of details to work out.
EJ: Ah, it's okay. Details we can handle.
Sami: Mm-hmm. It's amazing how quickly things change, don't they? You know, how just--we can be this happy the day after thinking that the sky was falling... and thinking that everything with Nick was gonna explode. Mm. I have to go.
Sami: I-I have to get dressed. I do have things to do.
EJ: No, you haven't.
Sami: Yes, I--whoa! [Chuckles]
EJ: Don't go.
Sami: Good things come to those who wait. Right?
Abigail: Uh, I was just thinking about--
Abigail: [Chuckles] Yeah, work stuff.
Nick: Yeah, no, it's funny. It's actually my first day back at Mad World today.
Abigail: Oh, right. The interview with Kate went well, then, yeah?
Nick: You know, odds were against it working out, but lately I am convinced that, if you want something badly enough, you just have to bear down until you get it.
Abigail: Oh, yeah? I'm not so sure about that.
Nick: No? What, do you think I-I sound grandiose?
Abigail: No, no. Sorry, Nick. I'm just, uh, I'm in a little bit of a mood today. That's all.
Nick: Do you want to talk about it?
Abigail: No, not particularly.
Nick: Okay. Um, I just--I remember when we used to be able to talk about anything. I miss that, Abigail. You know, I try to open up to my family--Hope and Maggie and Julie--and, uh, I don't know. There's just--there's certain things that I can't talk about.
Abigail: Like what kind of things?
Nick: Uh... Gabi.
Gabi: Look, I know you all want me to believe that Nick is bad news, but I--
Sonny: There--Gabi, there is no "but." Can you stop for one second and think about who we're dealing with? We have no idea what he's up to or what he remembers.
Gabi: We know that now.
Sonny: What? What do you mean?
Gabi: We had it all out.
Sonny: Who is "we"?
Gabi: Okay, me, Nick, Sami, Kate, and Percy too, okay? Nick's known the truth the whole time.
Sonny: Are you kidding me?
Gabi: No, I'm not kidding.
Sonny: So he--he knew. He's been playing you...
Gabi: No, he hasn't.
Sonny: Since he got back.
Gabi: He hasn't.
Sonny: Gabi, do you hear yourself?
Gabi: Can you just let me finish my story, please? He didn't say anything because he didn't want to make everyone feel uncomfortable.
Sonny: Are you serious?
Sonny: He didn't want you guys to feel uncomfortable? You threw him into a river to die. I don't think he cares about your comfort level.
Gabi: He doesn't think that, okay?
Sonny: You just said that.
Gabi: He thinks I'm innocent!
Marlena: Brady, when you realized that Kristen had manipulated the whole scenario, I thought you had forgiven Eric. You know in your heart he was--
Brady: What I know in my heart is that I don't want one more person to tell me how I'm supposed to feel about Eric.
Marlena: And who's doing that?
Brady: Well, Nicole, for one. She comes over, and she has this news that I have to hear about Eric. I just had to hear it. I don't wanna hear it from her. I don't wanna hear it from you.
Roman: [Sucks his teeth]
Nicole: You seem really sure.
Eric: I am at peace with my decision. And I felt the same way when I left my meeting at St. Luke's, and I feel that way even more right now, here with you. I'm so sorry. I'm running late. I have to be somewhere.
Nicole: It's okay. I'm glad you came by.
Eric: Listen, can I see you tonight? There's just so much more we need to talk about.
Nicole: Y-yes. Yes, there is.
Eric: Nicole, I have meant everything I've ever said to you about my feelings for you. And I understand if... you are less sure than I am.
Nicole: You don't have to worry about that, Eric.
Nicole: So I-I don't even-- I don't even know how this works in terms of propriety. But, I mean, can-- can we even be seen together? I mean, just to talk?
Eric: We were still doing it when I was a priest.
Nicole: So are you already not a priest?
Eric: Well, there's still some formalities. The paperwork, it'll take some time. But when I left my meeting last night with the bishop, I wasn't bound to my vows anymore. Listen, I, uh, I need to go. My parents, they're--[Chuckles] They're waiting. So I'll call you later.
Nicole: Please. I need to be as sure as he is. Oh, God, I need to love him the way he's been loving me, without complications. And that means ditching this. Today.
Sami: Abe, hi.
Abe: Hey, Sami, EJ. I-I was just here to thank your father for his generous contribution to Lexie's wing at the hospital.
Sami: She was a great woman. She deserves to be honored in this way--in every way.
EJ: She does indeed.
Sami: Uh, well, I had better get going. I'm going to stop by to see the baby on my way to work.
Abe: Yeah, I'm gonna head over to the station. I'll walk out with you, hmm?
Abe: All right, EJ.
Sami: I'll call you soon. You did right by your daughter, Stefano.
EJ: So? Tell me all about this new wing.
Abe: [Laughing] Well. You are in a good mood this morning.
Sami: Well, it's a beautiful, crisp day, and I get to go see my granddaughter. What could be bad?
Abe: You and EJ seem close.
Sami: We are. And you seem downright thrilled about it.
Abe: I just-- I think you should be careful.
Sami: Seriously? Abe, you should be last on a very long list of people warning me about getting involved with this family.
Abe: Look, you know, Lexie was much--
Sami: Different? Maybe. But she wasn't always. She changed. She grew over time. EJ is on the same journey as his sister, Abe. You will be getting a save-the-date notice any day. And make sure that you and Theo keep the date clear. Johnny will love having his cousin at his parents' wedding.
Nick: Have you ever connected with somebody, like, so deeply-- like, really, really connected with them, not just superficially, but, like, with your entire soul and being?
Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, I-I-I think I have. Yeah.
Nick: That's what I have with Gabi. I always have, and--and, no matter how many times I've messed up, we still have this, like, electric connection. Both of us do.
Abigail: Yeah. That sounds like a really romantic notion, but I just-- I'm sorry, I-- yeah, I just don't think it's possible. No offense, but--
Nick: None taken. None taken. You have a right to your opinion. But do me a favor. Don't--don't say anything about this to Gabi. I just--I don't want to scare her off.
Abigail: Sure, yeah.
Nick: It's just... why would you risk living the rest of your life regretting what you didn't try? Anyway, thanks for listening.
Abigail: No problem.
Sonny: I'm confused. You tell me that Nick knows everything that happened that night in the woods. Then you tell me he thinks you're innocent. That doesn't make any sense.
Gabi: W-well, I mean, I am, pretty much.
Sonny: Come again?
Gabi: Okay, so I hit him in the head with a rock, but that was self-defense.
Sonny: Oh, my God.
Gabi: Look, Sami's the one that said that he was dead. And Kate and Sami were the ones that were all hot for dumping him into the river. And then, when he actually came to, Sami said that it was too late to save him, okay? And--and the--come on. Don't look at me like that, because you know all of this.
Sonny: I know that Kate and Sami risked everything to protect you. And now I feel like you're just making this all about yourself. You care how you come off in this situation.
Gabi: No, no, no, that is not true.
Sonny: You are throwing them under the bus!
Gabi: I am not throwing them under anything, okay? I'm just telling you what Nick thinks.
Sonny: You did not set him straight.
Gabi: How could I? He was right. You keep saying that he's this evil manipulator, but what he's been saying is proof that he's actually trying to be open-minded.
Sonny: Gabi, do you even hear yourself?
Gabi: Yes, I do, okay? He didn't go to the police when he could have. He didn't put us, the three of us, in prison. And he could've, okay? He just wants his job back. What is so scary about that?
Sonny: We should all be scared of Nick Fallon because he proves to you and the entire universe over and over again that he cannot be trusted. And you, over and over again, you let him back into your life because you are too blind and too weak to learn--
Gabi: Don't you dare call me weak.
Sonny: Gabi, you melt when Nick looks at you. He is bad news for you and everyone else that you say you care about, but you can't seem to figure out that you need to stop giving yourself up to him.
Gabi: I can't believe this.
Sonny: You can't believe this? Want some proof? Here's the couch, Gabi. Will could have died because of this head case, and a few months later you were sleeping with him in our living room!
Gabi: Oh, my God. Just stop, okay? Stop!
Sonny: You know what's next? You hit him in the head with a rock. You call it self-defense. Then you defend him. Let me ask you a question. What is your land speed record for wanting to sleep with him again? Or did you already break that rec--
Gabi: You know what I thought? I thought that we'd figured out a way to be friends. But I guess we haven't. Because you have no respect for me. And you never have.
Sonny: Gabi, you're not leaving this apartment right now. Gabi. Gabi! It is your turn to watch Arianna!
Eric: Mom... Dad, um... I've made a decision. I've asked the church to release me from my vows.
Marlena: Oh, my God. Are you sure that's what you want?
Eric: It's my choice. I'm not only sure it's what God wants for me, but I'm also sure it's the best thing for the church and everyone.
Roman: Eric, I, uh, I thought the church was your life.
Eric: I still have a life. It's just gonna be a bit different. I'm still on God's path.
Marlena: Eric, I can hear the resolve in your voice, and I see how strong you're being. But, darling, your commitment to the church was--it was passionate. It was inspired.
Eric: Mom, I know. And you were right. And I fought very hard to hang on to those things, but it's-- it's just that it's become very clear to me--now I have to stop fighting.
Nicole: What could possibly hold together
EJ: I'll be at the office.
Stefano: Elvis, one last thing. Congratulations.
EJ: Oh. I see. You know Samantha and I, uh-- yeah.
Stefano: Oh, Elvis, how long have you been living here, huh? I know everything that happens under this roof, all right? So the wedding is on.
EJ: Yeah. I can't think of anything that could stop it.
Nick: Why would you risk living the rest of your life regretting what you didn't try?
Abigail: You're right, Nick. For once, you're actually right.
Sonny: Hey, Sami!
Sami: Hi! Hi! Oh, my gosh. Oh, I just wanted one quick little snuggle.
Sami: Can I?
Sonny: Go ahead.
Sami: Hi, princess. Hi, my little beauty.
Sonny: Will has class this morning.
Sami: Oh, he does? So you're on daddy duty?
Sami: Is everything okay here?
Sonny: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Everything is all good.
Sami: It doesn't seem like it's all good.
Sonny: [Sighs] Gabi and I just got into this huge fight. Like, very, very bad.
Sami: Ugh. Did she tell you that Nick admitted to knowing everything?
Sonny: Yeah, she did. But it was more than that. I-I just don't get it. I don't get this whole thing.
Sami: Get what? Oh, my God. Don't tell me that she's still on this pathetic "Nick's changed" kick. What's wrong with that girl? [Baby talk] What is wrong with her, hmm?
Nick: Gabi. Hey, w-what's up? I came as soon as I got your text.
Gabi: Um, I'm sorry. I mean, maybe this is a mistake. I-I probably shouldn't have bothered you. I just--I just--I feel like there's no one to talk to about this, and I'm the only one that gets it.
Nick: Get what? Gets what?
Gabi: That you really do want to change.
Eric: I'm sure that Hope's gonna fill you in, so I'm just gonna give you the short version. Kristen, she hired a man, Chyka, to come up with that drug cocktail that she used. And knowing what I know now can only go so far. I can't prove it.
Marlena: Well, then we've got to find that man. We've got to question him.
Eric: No, Mom, he's gone, and he's not coming back. And I want you both to know I have found peace with that too.
Marlena: No. No. There has to be a way.
Eric: There isn't. And it's okay. Mom, look at me.
Marlena: [Sighs heavily]
Eric: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I can't stay. I-I have a lot of people to tell, and I want them to hear it from me. Mom, I do not want you to be sad, okay? I'm okay with this. No ambivalence. No looking back. I'm looking forward to going into the next phase of my life with open eyes. I love you both.
Marlena: I love you.
Roman: Love you too.
Brady: Destroying evidence?
Nicole: No. Gosh, nothing that sinister. No, it's just a story I was working on didn't pan out. So, you know, what brings you here, Brady?
Brady: Well, um, the last time I saw you...
Brady: You told me that there was some things that I should know about Eric, and I completely shut you down.
Brady: Well, what was that all about? Tell me.
Nicole: I think you should talk to Eric about it.
Brady: Nicole, you--you couldn't--you couldn't shut up about it last time I saw you, and now you want me to go talk to Eric about it?
Nicole: Well, it's better this way. Mm-hmm.
Brady: It's better this way. What are you doing? What, are you protecting him or something? What's going on?
Nicole: No, I just don't think it's my place, okay?
Brady: It--it was your place yesterday.
Nicole: Well, I was wrong.
Brady: You are unbeliev-- all right, fine. You know, my gut told me not to dig into this thing, and I was right.
Brady: Sorry I bugged you. Have a good day.
Nicole: Thanks. Yep. You too.
Gabi: I told you, I shouldn't have asked you to come.
Nick: No, no, no, no. I don't know, I, um-- it's just--it's very gratifying to hear that you believe me.
Gabi: Well, I mean, we're the only ones who get this. I had--had a fight with Sonny this morning about it. It--it was a really bad fight.
Nick: What? Wait, wait, wait.
Gabi: A really bad one.
Nick: Sit down. Tell me. Tell me what happened.
Gabi: [Sighs] I was defending you, and-- and it got out of control.
Nick: Whoa. Whoa, whoa, whoa. I'm--I'm so sorry. I hate that you're, like, caught in the middle of all this. That was never my intention.
Gabi: Well, they just think that I'm an idiot for even thinking--I mean, it's so condescending, and-- like Sami. This is, like, the what? The 67th time she's with EJ? And, I mean, look at all the horrible things they've done to each other. I mean, much worse than anything we've been through.
Nick: But you didn't say that to Sami, did you?
Gabi: Damn right I did.
Nick: Gabi, as--as much as it means to me that you have my back, you--you gotta stop doing that. I mean, all of them--Will, Sonny, Kate, Sami--I mean, maybe they're gonna come around about me, maybe they won't, but for right now they are totally justified in feeling however they feel. And if they're gonna be angry with somebody, it should be me.
Nick: No, listen. As long as you keep taking my side, they're gonna keep taking their anger out on you. All right? You live with Will and Sonny. Kate and Sami you have relationships with. Don't--don't risk all that for me.
Gabi: Okay. Well, then, I mean, what should I do?
Nick: Well, there is one thing you can do for me.
Sonny: You should've heard Gabi, like, defending him. She's 100% blind to her own weakness for this guy.
Sami: Believe me, I know. She basically said to me that her forgiving Nick is the same as me forgiving EJ.
Sonny: If this is too personal, you can say so, but did you forgive EJ? 'Cause I know Will said...
Sami: Do you want some?
Sonny: That there was some tension.
Sonny: There wa--yeah?
Sami: But it's over now. Do you want some or no? Okay. Um, no, it's all good now, actually. And one of the reasons I wanted to talk to you, besides getting a chance to say good morning to her, was, um, that I wanted to coordinate with you for our-- the wedding dates.
Sonny: Oh, yeah, yeah. Well, I mean, you were engaged first, so I think you get first dibs.
Sami: Very generous.
Sonny: Mm-hmm, so just let us know what day you pick, and then Will and I'll get married the day before.
Sami: [Laughs] You are kidding, right?
Sonny: Little bit.
Sami: Son-in-law after my own heart.
[Cell phone rings]
Sonny: [Clears throat]
Sonny: It's Gabi. Hello?
Gabi: Sonny, hey. Um, I'm calling to say I'm sorry.
Eric: Brady, hey.
Brady: Good morning.
Eric: Hey, I was hoping to see you today.
Brady: [Sighs] Guess there's no avoiding this.
Eric: What was that?
Brady: Nothing. What is it? Lay it on me. Fast.
Nicole: Oof. Hi. Uh, is Eric here?
Marlena: He just left. He just told us about his decision.
Nicole: That must have been hard for you to hear. It was for me too.
Roman: Yeah. You wonder if he'd have made the same decision if that guy Chyka hadn't gotten away.
Nicole: It was unfortunate, and I am so sorry that Chyka gave me the slip like that.
Marlena: That he gave you the slip? What are you talking about?
Sonny: You're sorry?
Gabi: I know I overreacted before. I mean, you were just saying how you felt, and I need to respect that.
Sonny: Okay, yeah. I mean, I think we both said things that we shouldn't have.
Gabi: You know, I'm--I'm never going to forget that you delivered our baby. I mean, she's here because of you, and she loves you, and you're--you're her parent as much as Will and I are. And I always want to stay friends.
Sonny: I do too.
Gabi: Really glad we talked. Um, okay, bye.
Sonny: Well, I didn't see that coming. She was so nice to me.
Sami: Huh. Well, maybe she's woken up. Maybe you got through to her. You know? I mean, one less thing to worry about, right?
Sonny: Yeah. It's gonna be interesting when she finds out Will and I are getting married.
Nick: You handled that just right.
Gabi: You think?
Nick: Totally, totally. Feels good, right?
Gabi: You know, it does. It does. Thank you. Nick, you were absolutely right to suggest that.
Nick: I'm here to help. Anytime. Um... I better go. But I'll talk to you real soon. Bye.
Eric: So I'm not bound to my vows anymore.
Brady: So just like that, you're out.
Eric: Yeah, I told my folks. They were--they were surprised, as I'm sure everybody else will be when they hear. I thought about it a long time and prayed.
Brady: Well, you know what? If that's what you think you should do, then maybe that's what you should do.
Eric: I believe it's what God wants me to do.
Brady: Well, Eric, you know, I don't know about God, but it sure as hell is what Nicole wants.
Nicole: Uh, there's nothing for me to add. Eric filled you in, I'm assuming.
Roman: Well, I'm not sure he did, based on what you just said.
Marlena: Nor am I.
Roman: Look, I've been out of town. I haven't talked to Hope yet. So why don't you fill in the blanks for me? Have a seat.
Nicole: Okay. Um, well, to make a long story short, Daniel and I tracked down Chyka, and we tried to get what we could out of him, and we came up short. And then Daniel was dealing with putting out some other fire, which we don't need to get into, and Chyka bolted. And now it's a dead end. That's the whole story.
Marlena: So Chyka bolted on your watch. When you were watching him. You... and nobody else?
EJ: EJ DiMera. Thank you for your patience. I was expecting Mr. Gibbons. I'm assuming that you are his assistant.
Abigail: Not exactly.
EJ: Abigail. What-- my assistant said that, uh--
Abigail: Don't blame her. I lied. I heard you talk about this meeting yesterday, so I-I used the name of the client that you were expecting to see to get in.
EJ: Stop. I don't understand. Why?
EJ: Abigail, you have to realize, this--
Abigail: Don't, EJ. Sami isn't here. And she has a meeting later out of the office. It's just us.
EJ: Abigail, what exactly is it that you want, hmm?
Abigail: You. I want you. EJ, I'm not gonna just walk away.Back to The TV MegaSite's Days of Our Lives Site
