Sonny: Shh, shh, shh, shh.
Gabi: Oh, sorry.
Sonny: I just got Ari to sleep.
Gabi: Thank you so much for watching her.
Sonny: You know I love to. So how'd the shoot go? You look like a million bucks.
Gabi: Sonny, it was so awesome. I mean, I had so much fun. I haven't felt this good about myself in a long time, you know? Ari deserves to have a mom that feels confident.
Sonny: I agree.
Gabi: Well, you're not gonna agree with what I have to say next. I don't think this would've happened if it weren't for Nick.
Will: Wow. Bumping into you, it's not my lucky day.
Nick: Oh, well, luck had nothing to do with it. I saw you, and I followed you here. I think--I think it's time you and I had a talk.
Sami: Okay, listen. The man, whoever he is, and this other woman, I mean, maybe they can work through their problems. Maybe their relationship can survive this. But if you are pregnant with his child, this relationship is not your problem. It's his, okay?
Sami: What was that? Is there someone back there? Who's back there?
Maxine: Oh, I'm sorry, ladies. You have to leave this room now.
Daniel: What are these?
Jennifer: You can't see what they are. You just have to open up and say "Ahh." Ready?
Daniel: Okay, Ahh. Ahh.
Jennifer: Open and say "Ahh."
Daniel: Ahh, oh, my gosh. I love...
Both: Chocolate-covered macadamia nuts.
Jennifer: I know. I know you do.
Daniel: You know, if you were trying to buy my affection with these little Hawaiian treats, you know what? It worked, oh, yeah.
Jennifer: Good, I'm glad. I also came by to give you news about our guest list for our gathering. It looks like hope and Aiden are a go. They're coming.
Daniel: All right. You know, um, I was gonna ask you something--how would you feel about asking Eric and Nicole?
Jennifer: Uh, yeah. Yeah, why not? Just, uh, don't forget to ask them what they like on their pizza.
Daniel: Okay. I wasn't expecting a "yeah, why not?" I was expecting we'd at least talk about it.
Jennifer: Okay, yeah, we can talk about it. Uh, I guess I should tell you I know something about your relationship with Nicole, and I have to admit I'm kinda surprised.
Eric: Just answer the question, mom. Did you go to Stefano and talk to Chyka? Just to get some dirt on Nicole? Did you?
Jennifer: Yeah, I just had an interesting talk with Eric, uh, about the lie that you and Nicole told him about the two of you being a couple.
Daniel: Okay, that. All right, well, did he tell you the reason for the lie?
Jennifer: Well, Nicole thought that Eric wouldn't let her help him if he knew how she felt about him.
Daniel: Yeah, so we made him think that she moved on, which seemed like a pretty good idea at the time, yeah.
Daniel: Okay, Jenn, let me tell you, I ran into a brick wall, trying to get medical evidence to prove his story. The guy was getting hammered, and Kristen effectively just destroyed everything that mattered to him. Nicole and I, we needed to use the resources that she had at the studio to kind of track down Chyka. And well, like I said, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Jennifer: Right, but this good idea--it wasn't yours, was it?
Daniel: No, it wasn't. But does that matter?
Marlena: Eric, let me explain this.
Eric: I hope you can.
Marlena: I was trying to trick Stefano. Hope gave me a device to trace the call and try to locate Chyka. I just had to keep him talking.
Eric: That doesn't answer my question. What does Nicole have to do with all of this?
Marlena: I don't know.
Eric: Okay, I'm gonna say this one more time. In doing all this, was it Chyka or Nicole you were trying to catch?
Marlena: Eric, let-- [Sighs]
Eric: I think you just answered my question.
Sami: Abigail and I were trying to have a private conversation.
Maxine: Well, I'm sorry, but there's a meeting here in five minutes, and I need to set up for it.
Abigail: That--that's fine. Sami, we should--we should probably just go.
Sami: No, no, Abigail. There is someone back there, and they heard everything that we said. We need to know who it is. Come on. It's okay. I could swear I heard I something.
Maxine: Oh, they leave this window open 'cause it gets hot in here. Breeze must have knocked this over.
Sami: Do you think that's what we heard?
Abigail: I don't know. But, Sami, I really do have to get back to work.
Sami: Oh, no. We have more to talk about.
Maxine: Somewhere else.
Abigail: I'm late.
Sami: Honey, I know you don't wanna talk to your mom, but you have to talk to someone.
Abigail: Fine. Yeah, fine.
Sonny: Nick wants you to think this is all because of him, but here's what I know. Sami and EJ would have given you the job if you just asked. You are beautiful, and you are talented--that's why you were hired, not because of Nick.
Gabi: That's not true. And I'm beginning to see that Nick's been right all along.
Sonny: What is that supposed to mean?
Gabi: It means, Sonny, that Nick got me that modeling contract in new York. And yes, he went about it the wrong way. You know, he was manipulative. He had his own agenda. But the point is that--that he knew what I needed, long before I did.
Will: I can't think of anything you and I would possibly have to talk about.
Nick: Things are moving forward. And I want you to accept that.
Will: Or else, right? Sonny told me what you said about how you have a bullet for each of us.
Nick: Well, I think, as a writer, you can appreciate that I was speaking metaphorically.
Will: So was Hitler.
Nick: Wow, okay. Um, let's get something straight, okay? Sonny invited me to meet him. And when I got there, he--you know, he dropped the Kiriakis name, and he threatened that if I didn't see things his way, that he'd make sure that I did, and he'd use his family's influence to make sure that I did. So who's threatening who here, will?
Daniel: Jennifer, I know it was a lie. But it was an innocent one, right? Right, and nobody got hurt. And the truth of the matter is, Nicole got really close-- both of us, we got really close to clearing his name. We're getting him back into the priesthood.
Jennifer: Right, but it was Nicole's idea, right?
Daniel: Okay, Jenn, she was in love with him and trying to help him keep on being a priest. It was a pretty selfless act.
Jennifer: No, I agree. I know that she was doing what was best for Eric. And, I mean, we were apart at that time, so it's really none of my business.
Daniel: Okay, no--well, no, it is your business if it bothers you.
Jennifer: No, it doesn't bother me. It's just-- fooling Eric, I understand how that would be Nicole's idea. It's just so out of character for you.
Daniel: Really? Well, I let EJ think that Rafe was the father of his baby.
Jennifer: Oh, come on, Daniel, please. I have lied so many times, horribly, to you, to so many people.
Daniel: Okay, wait, hold on. You know what I think?
Jennifer: I think you think I should just change the subject and--
Daniel: Uh, no, no, no. I think this goes back to the thing with Theresa-- me not telling you the whole story. I mean, do you think that I was lying then?
Jennifer: No, you never told me anything that happened...
Daniel: Well, I certainly...
Jennifer: Between you and Theresa.
Daniel: Let you think that something happened between me--
Jennifer: Yes, for JJ. And you did that all for me. But this situation with Nicole, it just--it seems different somehow.
Daniel: Jennifer, it really was just an act.
Jennifer: Right, but it feels like this ongoing deception. That's all.
Daniel: Okay, I guess it was.
Jennifer: Like you're leading people to believe something that isn't true. And it's just not like you to give a performance like that. You know, and Nicole asks you to do it, and you do it anyway.
Eric: Mom, what did you think you were gonna find out? Aside from her finding me in that hotel room and taking me to the hospital, not to mention risking her life on more than one occasion. What terrible, horrible thing is it that you think she did?
Marlena: Nicole was in love with Chyka when he escaped. Why would she let him go when she went to all the trouble of finding him?
Eric: Let him go? Mom, he was an armed, dangerous lunatic who tried to blow her to smithereens. Maybe she didn't have a choice in the matter.
John: I think what your mother meant here--
Eric: I don't need you to tell me what my mother meant. Why didn't you ask Chyka about Kristen? I mean, she is the one who destroyed my vocation, not Nicole.
Marlena: I made a deal with Stefano not to ask about Kristen. All I wanted was the truth.
Eric: The truth is what? Tell us, mom. What did you find out?
Marlena: It turned out that Chyka confirmed Nicole's story.
Eric: You must have been crushed.
Marlena: No! All I wanted was the truth. Chyka said that he had overpowered Nicole and he'd escaped. And all she was trying to do was get information about what he'd done to you.
Eric: But that's what Nicole said happened. I mean, God forbid anyone ever listen to what Nicole says. You know what? That's it. Let's go, we're done.
Nicole: Wait, wait. Eric, Eric, Eric, wait. Please, don't leave it this way with your mother.
Eric: I said that we were done.
John: Just give him a little time--
Marlena: No, no. Don't.
Daniel: Can we stop talking about Nicole and just talk about us, hmm?
Jennifer: But this, um--
Jennifer: This isn't talking.
Daniel: No, this is nonverbal communication, is what this is.
Jennifer: [Gasps] Oh. I see, okay. Well, you need to cease and desist. Desist, or I am taking my candy with me.
Daniel: Wow. You drive a hard bargain, woman.
Jennifer: [Giggles] Well, I need to go anyway because we are making a new employee handbook, and I am on the committee.
Daniel: Whoa, can--what?
Jennifer: Oh, yes, I know, I know, you wanna give up your humdrum brain surgery for my fireworks of a job.
Daniel: Yeah, please. Please, can I just see the minutes to the committee meetings, please?
Jennifer: Oh, no, no. You don't have clearance. It's for my eyes only.
Daniel: Wow. Wow, you're working your way up at that place.
Jennifer: I am.
Daniel: Hey, uh, Jenn?
Daniel: Um, listen. Are you really okay with Eric and Nicole and all?
Jennifer: Yes, I am okay. I want things to work out for them, I do.
Daniel: Oh, me too. Okay.
Nicole: Look, um, I need to go to work. Do you mind if I just have a little alone time? I need to take a shower and just...
Eric: Okay. But before I go, I'm gonna make a promise to you. I will never, ever let my mother or anyone else hurt you again.
Nicole: Thank you.
Eric: Are you sure you're okay?
Nicole: Yes. 'Cause I have you. Mm. [Chuckles] Go. [Sighs] [Panting] Oh, yes. These are the files. These are the files on Eric and the drug cocktails. These are-- this is it. "Kristen DiMera has contacted me, asking my help in a most unorthodox procedure, involving a priest." Mm. Well, look at that. Partners in crime.
Sonny: So now Nick knows what you need. Do you remember what he was doing to you, when you hit him in the head with that rock? Is that what you needed?
Gabi: He's changed.
Sonny: How can you say that with a straight face?
Gabi: I know you're trying to help, okay? But I don't want anybody to tell me how I should feel about Nick. So I just think that we should agree to disagree. I've had a really, really awesome day, and I don't wanna let anyone or anything bring me down, all right? Thank you for watching Ari.
Sonny: [Sighs] Nick has changed. Yes, for the worse.
Nick: I'm just saying that-- that I want Gabi to be a part of my life again. Of course, it's totally up to her to decide whether that happens, okay? I just--I wanna start over.
Will: You can't be serious.
Nick: Will, I could've put your mother and your grandmother in prison. I didn't.
Will: Because then you couldn't blackmail them.
Nick: Oh, my gosh, jeez. You know, ask Kate if I'm earning my paycheck at mad world. Go ahead, ask her. And furthermore, I'm sure that Gabi did an amazing job modeling for your mother today.
Will: What is it you want?
Nick: What do I-- what do I want? What I want-- I want what you have, will. I want--I want people to like me.
Liam: Thanks for setting up. I don't think the meeting should last more than an hour.
Abigail: Oh, I actually am not drinking caffeine, you know, just in case.
Sami: It's ginger tea. It helped me through my morning sickness.
Abigail: If that's what I'm having and if I am actually pregnant.
Sami: Abigail, honey, all those ifs. You're not there yet. You just--first things first, you need to know one way or the other.
Abigail: Yeah, I know that.
Sami: Finding out if you're pregnant, that is a huge-- that is a huge thing. And you shouldn't have to go through it alone. If this guy that you were seeing has this other life or whatever, he's not willing to be there with you, I am. Okay? I wanna help you. I don't think you should have to go through this alone. So why don't we go and buy a pregnancy test, and I will be there for you when you find out?
Liam: It's good to see you all. My name is Liam. I wanna say right up front, I am not a doctor, and I am a rep for a pharmaceutical company. But this meeting isn't about a specific treatment. I'm not pushing a product. I also want you to know that everything said here is 100% confidential. The most important thing is to realize that you aren't alone and that there is help. So... let's talk about E.D. Erectile dysfunction.
Sami: What'd he say?
Abigail: Uh, Sami, you're being really nice, but, um, I do have to get back to work. And, you know, I think it's best for me to just--just get through this day and then go home and take the test, you know, by myself.
Sami: Do you think that maybe you're delaying taking the test because you're afraid of what the results might be? Abigail, you are a wreck. I'm sorry, but you are. And I just don't want you to be alone when--if--if the results are positive. It's just really big news, you know? And--and the enormity of it-- well, I just--I just think it's important for you to have someone with you when you find out that your life's changed forever.
Abigail: Right, uh...
Sami: Have you thought about talking to your mother about this?
Abigail: No. No, absolutely not.
Will: So you feel sorry for yourself?
Nick: [Chuckles] No. I-I don't feel sorry for myself. Self-pity doesn't get you anywhere, all right? It doesn't serve a purpose. What's important is that I change the way people feel about me and the way they think of me.
Will: All right, well, it's gonna take an awful lot to change the way that Sonny or I or my mom or my dad feel about you, because we have brains and we have memories.
Nick: It will take time.
Will: It will take lobotomies.
Nick: [Laughs] That's really funny. Um, I think you're gonna be a great writer. You have a real way with words. I'm serious. I'm really serious.
Will: Yeah, I hate your compliments more than I hate your slurs.
Nick: Okay, uh, well, thanks for talking to me. And, will, um, you better see to it that your boyfriend doesn't try to make good on his threats, because it won't end well. And I'd appreciate it if you didn't try to turn people against me.
Will: And by people, you mean Gabi.
Nick: She has a mind of her own. I know she won't listen to you.
Daniel: Oh, hey, Eric, Eric. Hey, I was gonna--
Eric: [Yells] What?
Daniel: What? What the hell? Did something happen?
Eric: Yes. Yes, it has.
John: Eric will get over it. You know, in time, he will realize that you were just trying to help him.
Marlena: You know what, john?
Marlena: I don't really care to hear your interpretation of the situation. All the anger and pain and suffering we are going through is all caused directly by Kristen. And Eric and Brady and I are all suffering because of your arrogance and your stupidity and bringing that evil bitch back into our lives. Yeah.
Roman: Marlena. You okay?
Marlena: Roman. You're not gonna believe what I've done to our son.
Nicole: [Sighs] This could be a letter, which could be from Chyka, which could be about meeting Kristen for the first time. Oh, my God. Who are you trying to kid? Really? I mean, even if you did put this whole thing back together and proved what she did to Eric, it's not like you're gonna use it, because you'd lose him. [Sighs] But ironically enough, after today, Marlena's strange attempt to get something on you, it's-- it's clear that everyone thinks there aren't any records to be looking for. They think they know the whole story, and Marlena verified it. So I'm totally in the clear. Now more than ever.
[Rapid knocking at door]
[Rapid knocking at door]
Roman: John, could you give us a minute?
Marlena: Roman, you're going to be upset when I tell you what I did to Eric.
Roman: Hey, don't worry about it. Just tell me everything.
Daniel: Nicole, are you in there?
Nicole: Uh, just a second. I--okay, I'm coming, I'm coming. Hi, hi.
Daniel: Look, I just ran into Eric, and he told me what happened. I just wanted to make sure that you--you're okay.
Nicole: Yeah, I'm fine.
Daniel: Really? 'Cause that's not what I'm seeing here. You don't look fine here. What--what--
Nicole: All right, I-- okay, no, I'm not. It was-- it was pretty brutal.
Daniel: Yeah? Yeah, well, I could see Eric was still pretty upset. But you know what? Think about it this way. Sounds like Marlena is figuring out what Eric and I already knew--that you did everything right and nothing wrong.
Nicole: Yeah, great. But look what it's done to Eric. Okay, all he does is defend me.
Daniel: Well, he should. Come on, what--
Nicole: Look, he-- Marlena and Eric, they are very close, and they are gonna be in real pain.
Daniel: All right. Well, maybe she finally learned the lesson. You are the most important thing in Eric's life, so she can't go after you, right?
Nicole: It doesn't-- still, this whole town is gonna think that she's right and I'm horrible.
Daniel: Okay, stop with what people think. Does it matter what everybody thinks if Eric knows exactly who you are and loves you for it?
Liam: I'm going to give you some time to talk openly. I'll be back in a few minutes with more information.
Liam: [Exhales] How about them Cubs, huh?
Who the hell wants to talk openly about being stuck in neutral?
Hey, guys, it's nothing to be ashamed about. Yeah, right.
Yeah, sometimes I think back to high school, algebra class. Never was a problem back then.
Yeah, and you always got called to the blackboard?
[Chuckles] Ah, those were the days.
My wife's so great. She's really patient, but she finally asked if it was her. It's not her. I still think she's so hot.
My partner and I are trying to have a baby, but I'm not able to do my part.
EJ: I wish I had that problem.
Abigail: Look, um, I'm really grateful, Sami. You have been unbelievably nice to me, so thank you. But you don't have to worry about me.
Sami: I just really wanna help you. Johnny's crazy about you. So is EJ, and you have been so great with me. I mean, teaching me about art, so I don't make fool of myself in front of EJ in Italy. And your mom and I, we have been friends for a long time. And in spite of how she can be, she's going to accept this, she is.
Abigail: I'm sorry, wait. What--what do you mean, "how she can be"?
Liam: I've been at a conference and haven't had a chance to get back to Dr. Bell about his order, so if you could just tell him that the forms have been processed and that I've expedited delivery...
Liam: Yeah, thanks. I'll catch ya later, right? Oh, hi, Jennifer.
Liam: I gotta say, I love working here. And just to be sure, after that misunderstanding, we're good, right?
Jennifer: Sure, yeah. Forgotten, in the past. Excuse me.
Liam: No, it's not.
Sonny: Mwah. Looks like you've had about as much fun as I have today.
Will: Oh, my day was worse. Nick wanted to share with me.
Sonny: Yeah, that is worse.
Will: You know, when he tries to mimic human behavior, that's when he's creepiest. Get this. He confided in me that he wants people to like him. I told him not to hold his breath.
Sonny: Well, he may have his work cut out for him with everyone else. But with Gabi, he has her right where he wants her.
Nick: Hey, uh, good news?
Gabi: Oh, yeah. The art director from my photo shoot--he loved my proofs.
Nick: Oh, my God. That's--that's amazing. I stopped by to see how it went, and I guess I got my answer. Wow, you look-- you look amazing. You look so incredible.
Gabi: Thank you. Come in, come in.
Nick: Okay. Um, I know that you're still nursing, so I brought some sparkling apple cider to celebrate, just 'cause I knew it was gonna go well.
Gabi: I don't know how to say thank you.
Sonny: You know, let's just stop talking about Nick, because he drives us both crazy. Let's talk about the wedding.
Will: Well, that gets us crazy too, but in a good way.
Sonny: You know what I realized? We have talked about every little detail for this wedding, but we have skipped over one really huge, important decision.
Both: Who do we want to actually marry us?
Gabi: Okay, to you.
Nick: To me?
Nick: What do you mean? I didn't do anything.
Gabi: Oh, no? Of course you did. You--you've been right this whole time. I feel so much better about myself now that I'm bringing in a paycheck, and, I mean, it's even more than that. Today, those people I was working with, they treated me like--
Nick: What, like you should be treated?
Gabi: I owe all of that to you.
Nick: Come on, please. You would've done all of that yourself.
Gabi: But I needed it now, and you knew that. You know me better than anyone.
Nick: This is good.
Liam: No, you don't have to get outdoor bathtubs to make it work, like in that commercial. I think that's meant to be symbolic. Of what, I have no idea. Uh, one last question.
And now, do we have to call a doctor if it lasts more than four hours?
Liam: Or you risk serious medical consequences.
Oh, but what a way to go.
Right, right? Hey, hey.
Liam: So I need to be going. Feel free to stay on and look over the literature. Take your time, okay? All right.
Abigail: You're marrying a DiMera, and you're throwing stones at my mother?
Sami: No, I-I just meant-- well, she's a little--
Abigail: A little what? Nice? Kind? Considerate of other people besides herself?
Sami: Yes, yes, yes. Of course, she is all of those things. Abigail, let's just say she's led a very moral life.
Abigail: She has standards, for herself. She doesn't judge other people.
Sami: Look, I-- I'm trying to help. And I realize that I am not doing that. And I'm sorry. So, um, I know we both have to get back to work. Um--
Sami: Please promise me, if you need anything, you will call me.
Abigail: Right. Thanks.
Sami: Oh, um-- I-I meant to-- Abigail? [Sighs] I have her book. I-- no, I don't have her book. Oh, right.
Jennifer: These are great.
Eric: No, you know what?
Jennifer: Yes, they are. They're excellent.
Eric: I'm not really happy, and I'm just-- I'm gonna do them over again.
Jennifer: I can tell you're not really happy, full stop.
Eric: Yeah, it's been kind of a bad day.
Jennifer: You wanna talk about it?
Eric: I already spoke to Daniel. I'll spare you the details, but he's really something.
Jennifer: Yeah, he is.
Eric: It's just, this transition from priest to, you know, dude, is not easy.
Jennifer: Well, Daniel has "dudeness" covered, doesn't he?
Eric: Yeah. You know what I really like? It's that he sees the good things in Nicole that I see.
Nicole: [Sighs] You're right. You're right. Who cares what people think? Eric and I are together, so everyone else can just go scratch.
Daniel: Yeah, go tell 'em to scratch off if you need to, all right?
Nicole: Thank you for, um-- for coming by. Now get out, 'cause I'm late for work and I haven't showered yet.
Daniel: Okay, all right. Well, you go ahead and do that, and I'll just--oh, I will take care of this here.
Daniel: And I'll let myself out.
Nicole: You take your time.
Daniel: Oh, wow. Um--
Daniel: Hey, Nicole, uh, Jennifer and I wanna know if you and Eric would like to come-- okay. Uh, right. [Exhales] Just need paper.
Abigail: Hey, so sorry about before.
Maxine: Oh, that's okay. We just needed the room.
Abigail: Did the meeting go okay?
Maxine: I think so. It should be over any minute.
Sami: Um, hi. Uh, Maxine, I left one of my books in the community room. Have you seen it?
Maxine: No, but it must still be in there. Looks like the meeting's over. You can go get it.
Sami: Oh, thank you.
This wasn't really that hard. [Laughs] Oh, too funny.
EJ: [Grunts] [Sighs]
EJ: [Sighs] "Don't worry. Everything is... fine."
Sami: EJ. What are you doing here?
Marlena: So that's what I did, that's all of it.
Roman: Well, can't say that I'm thrilled about you making a deal with Stefano. But like I said, don't worry about it, okay? What you did, you did for Eric.
Marlena: I'm not sure he'll ever understand that.
Roman: Well, I will tell you what, okay? I'll talk to him.
Jennifer: I really think you're being too hard on yourself.
Eric: No, it's boring.
Jennifer: It's a triage station. It's not supposed to be a sexy setting. Oh, excuse me one second. What is that? Excuse me, Eric.
Nicole: Oh, hey. You're still here?
Daniel: What in the hell is this?
