Provided By Suzanne
Rafe: Hey. I was waiting for you to wake up.
Jordan: [Sighs] Oh, my gosh, look at the time.
Rafe: I know. Sorry about that. I kept you up late, didn't I?
Jordan: I didn't mind.
Rafe: But the way things came out... not exactly the way I would've planned it.
Rafe: Things that we said. I'd have preferred... I love you. I love you so much.
Abigail: Crazy and totally terrifying.
Will: But your mom's okay now, right?
Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, she's okay. They all are. It's just upsetting, you know? I mean, this lunatic was stalking my mom. He could've killed her. He almost did. It was a mess. Nicole shot Daniel by mistake, and luckily he's okay, so... anyway, uh, I just got to the club, so I'm gonna try to find Sonny and fill him in, okay?
Will: He's actually here now. Arianna is teething, so he was on night duty and I'm letting him sleep in.
Abigail: Okay, then I'll talk to you later.
Will: Take care. I'm really glad your mom's all right.
Abigail: Thank you. Me too. Bye. [Gasps] Oh.
Ben: Are you okay?
EJ: No. The photographs from the ferry are useless. Did you get a log of the private boats that docked at smith island that night?
Johnny: Daddy, daddy!
EJ: Not now, Johnny, I'm busy, please.
Johnny: This is important too. I found a picture of Santa Claus!
Kate: Bird watching?
Percy: Ah, greetings. Do you know what this is?
Kate: $2.99 at the street market?
Percy: Just a little experiment that Nick set up. It's an illustration of thermodynamics. The science of the relationship between heat and work. No? [Clears throat] You see, with hot air--
Kate: Of which there is plenty in this room.
Percy: [Chuckles] You are as drole as you are magnanimous.
Kate: Is that a thank-you?
Percy: Oh, yes. For the most generous raise.
Kate: Mm-hmm. Well, you see, people in positions of power, like me, we see an additional $10,000 a year, which is unearned, as rude money. Which means I pay you more than you're worth so I can be rude to you with impunity. Now, where's Nick?
Gabi: Thanks for checking this out for me, Nick.
Gabi: When I showed will the custody agreement, he sort of freaked. But I explained to him, or at least I think I did, that this is not even close to what we're gonna end up with, that this is how the lawyers--
Nick: No, no, Mr. Jennings laid this out perfectly. This--this is exactly how it should be.
Sami: Is Gabi here?
Will: Mom, you can't just show up like that.
Sonny: Gabi's not home.
Sami: Does she have Arianna with her?
Sonny: No, Ari's sleeping.
Sami: Wow, she left the baby alone with you. That's so surprising, given what she was asking for in the custody agreement. Don't play dumb. Kate already told me.
Will: I know you told me not to tell grandma, but it's a moot point now, all of this. EJ said it's just a negotiating position. Everything's gonna be okay.
Sami: I know what EJ said, but this is Gabi and Nick we are talking about here, and I am not going to stand by and do nothing.
Nick: Gabi, you need to listen to me on this. You need to call the lawyer and get him to put in a request for a court date ASAP, all right? Lock this down, get it done.
EJ: Where did you get this?
Johnny: Allie's daddy sent it to her.
Percy: Ms. Roberts, surely you know by now that Mr. Fallon prefers to do the lion's share of his work after the sun sets. He is nocturnal.
Kate: Most bloodsuckers are.
Percy: I have observed firsthand just how creative my superior can be when he's able to shut out the world.
Kate: Aw... too bad Nick didn't shut out the world permanently when we dropped him into that river.
Gabi: Nick, Mr. Jennings said that we ask for everything and then we dial it back, that we--
Nick: Gabi, do you really think that Sami is gonna settle for anything less than what she wants?
Gabi: Okay, but what Sami wants--
Nick: She made it really clear. She thinks that you are an unfit mother. She is gonna do everything in her power to take your baby away from you.
Sonny: Sami, I'm not gonna fight with you. I'm with will on this. I can't see Gabi suddenly doing a 180 and only letting us see Ari every other weekend.
Sami: Okay, what about Nick? Can you picture him doing that?
Sonny: He doesn't have any rights in this equation.
Sami: Gabi does whatever he tells her to do.
Sonny: Still, if for some insane reason, we go to court and Gabi and Nick are together, his criminal record alone would help us.
Sami: Sonny, it's not an option.
Sonny: What do you mean?
Sami: Nick made it clear to me that if any of us bring up his past in court, or try to use it to help us with the custody hearing, he will make sure we all end up in prison.
Rafe: You're upset?
Jordan: No, no, I-- it's just that I, um... well, I'd never...
Rafe: What? Just tell me. It's okay.
Jordan: I have never said those words to a man before.
Jordan: And so I kind of want to say them again for a second time.
Jordan: I love you, Rafe.
Abigail: Were you seriously just listening in to my conversation?
Ben: I was seriously bringing you your usual soy caramel latte. I haven't tried to hide the fact that I can hear, and you know, certain things like, "some stalker almost killed my mom," they just kinda grab your attention.
Abigail: Okay, I get it. This is none of your concern, Ben, okay?
Ben: You're right. Look, and I know that I was wrong to come in between you and that guy Nick, but look, since I know your name and you know my name, it's not totally out of line for me to ask if you're okay after somebody hurt somebody that you care about.
EJ: So, Johnny, did you get your photograph taken with this Santa as well?
Johnny: Yeah. I don't know where it is, though. I wish I did. This Santa was funny.
EJ: How so?
Johnny: Instead of saying, "ho, ho, ho," he said, "greetings." [Chuckles]
Gabi: What about Mr. Greetings? What--what did he say?
EJ: Would you please stop calling him that? It sounds ridiculous.
Kate: Okay, his name is Percy, Percy Ruggles.
EJ: Thank you for showing me the picture, Johnny. It was very funny.
Johnny: You weren't laughing.
EJ: I know. Come on. Off you go. Thank you. Yes, it's me. Listen, I need you to find out everything you can about a gentleman called Percy Ruggles.
Kate: So these patent forms for the new formula need to be filled out by Nick before sunset tonight, thank you. Is that clear? You know, Mr. Ruggles, you do seem like a nice gentleman. I have to wonder how someone so nice could be so comfortable being a lackey to a man like Nick Fallon.
Percy: We all do what we must, ms. Roberts.
Kate: Mm. On that we do agree.
Will: No, I won't buy into that, mom. Now, Nick may hold some sway over Gabi, but she is totally aware of what my role and Sonny's is in Arianna's life.
Sami: Nick has all the information.
Will: And Ari has all three of us. Gabi sees the way that Ari smiles when I walk in the room, and she knows that Sonny is the first one out of bed when Ari wakes up at night. Nick might know Gabi's weaknesses and ours. But that doesn't change the fact that Gabi is a mother, first, last, and always. So I know that she will stand up to Nick, because Gabi knows what's best for our daughter, and that is for me and Sonny to stay in her life.
Gabi: No, no, will would never let Sami take my baby away from me.
Nick: But... Gabi, think about when will's mom got involved before. You know what I mean? I don't blame him. But Sami seems to have some type of hold over will. And with EJ DiMera as--as his lawyer, Sami's fiancÚ...
Gabi: Okay, but this agreement, okay, it says that will can only see Arianna every other weekend, and we spend a lot of time together. I mean, that would kill him. And Sonny too.
Nick: I know. But those terms just--just set the minimum. If you were in charge of visitation, as the primary caregiver, as Ari's mother, you could adapt it and let will see the baby whenever he wanted.
Gabi: I don't--I don't know, Nick. I mean, I want to do what's best for Arianna, but--
Nick: I know. I know. Come here. Come here. You do not need to decide this right now, okay? Just take a deep breath.
[Breathes deeply] There's no pressure. I got something for you. I got this for you to show you that I-I believe in you.
Gabi: Oh, this is, um, like the one you gave will and Sonny. Is this--
Nick: Yeah, it's a--it's our names. I think that our love is just as special. You know, we've been doing really well lately, and we've overcome so much together. I want us to be a couple again. And I know that in your heart that that's what you want too. I'm their mom at the playground
Abigail: I'm sorry, Ben. I owe you an apology. That was incredibly rude of me.
Ben: You don't have anything to be sorry for. I'm sure last night was really tough on you.
Abigail: Well, it was, but still, that's no reason to snap at you like I did.
Ben: It's forgotten.
Abigail: So the answer to your, uh, totally appropriate question is yes, I'm--I'm fine.
Ben: I'm really glad that everything's over and everybody's okay.
Abigail: Thank you.
Ben: I gotta get back to work.
Rafe: [Sighs] Hey. Why aren't you looking at me?
Jordan: I-I just feel silly for saying what I did.
Rafe: Oh. Really? Come here. You know, I'm flattered to be the first person you've ever said those words to. And I'm not so naive to think that I'm the only person you've ever been involved with.
Jordan: But it's different with you. I've never felt as safe as I do when I'm in your arms.
Gabi: Nick, even if we did get back together, I mean, what does this have to do with will and Arianna?
Nick: Look... I've tried really hard. You've seen that, right?
Gabi: Yeah, but--
Nick: And it's been months since I came back to Salem and I said to everyone that I would put all of the bad stuff that happened behind us. And all of them knew that I could put them in prison for a long time, each and every one of them, and I didn't. You know, it's like I've tried every which way I can think of to convince them that my intentions are good, and they refuse to believe that I've changed. You're the only one, Gabi. The only one who's done that.
Gabi: Okay, so your point is?
Nick: Because I'm in your life again. Right? And because EJ and Kate and Sami and will and Sonny--because they refuse to even give me the slightest benefit of the doubt, they might do everything in their power to keep us away from your baby.
Sami: Well, um, okay. I mean, I hear you. [Chuckles] Obviously you know Gabi better than I do, and it seems like you three do have a great relationship that you're working out here, so I mean, who am I to say, right? I mean, maybe it is reasonable to think that she's not gonna shove this draconian custody agreement down your throats.
Will: We know she won't.
Sami: Okay. And EJ's gonna deal with Nick, so it's all gonna work out.
Sami: Well, good. I'm so glad I came. You have no idea. I feel so much better about everything now.
Sonny: Do you wanna take a peek at your granddaughter?
Sami: Oh, um, you know, I would love to, but I know she's sleeping, I know how precious that is. So you know what, I was thinking maybe, um, we'll make a plan to have a play date. Sydney and Johnny and Allie. They are dying to play with Arianna too, so why don't we schedule something? The weather's so nice, we'll go to the park. We'll do something fun.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah.
Sami: I love you both. I'll see you soon, okay? Maybe this weekend. Does that sound good?
Will: That sounds great, yeah.
Sami: Okay. Bye.
Sonny: See ya.
Sami: [Sighs] I have to find a way to put the screws to Gabi Hernandez. And I know just the person to do it.
Jordan: Mm... as perfect as this is, I don't think we can lay in bed all day. [Chuckles]
Rafe: I don't have to go to work for a while, actually.
Jordan: Ooh, sounds like someone spoke too soon.
Rafe: Oh, excuse me.
Rafe: Oh, it's Sami. She says it's important.
Jordan: Oh. You should take care of it.
Jordan: Well, does she say what it's about?
Rafe: No. No, but I have a pretty good idea.
Nick: And what about Rafe?
Gabi: What about him?
Nick: I mean, your brother can't stand me, Gabi. I mean, do you really think that he's ever gonna accept us as a couple?
Gabi: Well, Rafe doesn't tell me what to do.
Nick: No, but you gotta be realistic. A lot of people feel like they have an investment in this, and the only person, the only investment that actually counts, as far as Arianna's concerned, is yours.
Gabi: What are you doing?
Nick: I-I'm gonna call Mr. Jennings so that you can tell him to put in a court date request as soon as possible. This is the only way for you and Arianna to stay together.
Gabi: Mr. Jennings? It's, uh, Gabriella Hernandez. I've thought about it, and I would like for you to go ahead with the custody agreement you've drawn up, and I I'd also like for you to... get a court date as soon as you can. Thank you.
Nick: And you have to be sure to not tell anybody about the court date request. Right? Look, I know that you're really worried, Gabi, but I have everything under control. It doesn't have a date yet. But I really hope that it's soon.
Percy: Ah, the paperwork is ready for your perusal.
EJ: I don't think you'll be needing those documents, Mr. Ruggles. Unless that is, of course, your last will and testament.
Kate: You look like you're walking on air.
Jordan: Well, it's a wonderful day, that even seeing you can't ruin.
Rafe: I got here as fast as I could.
Sami: Will you please talk some sense into Gabi?
Rafe: What? Oh. Now you want me to get involved? What happened to, "Rafe, you better back off, you're gonna push Nick Fallon back into her arms"?
Sami: Circumstances have changed. Arianna is involved.
Rafe: Uh, she's Gabi's daughter. When was she not involved?
Sami: Okay. Look, there's a custody agreement now. And the way that Gabi had it drawn up, it makes it look like will and Sonny are deadbeat dads.
Sami: Yeah, it's ridiculous. I mean, it is totally unfair.
Rafe: And you think Gabi wanted this?
Sami: No, no, I think Gabi was railroaded. I do not blame her. I blame Nick.
Rafe: Right. Okay, Sami, I can't help you with half a story. So you're gonna tell me everything right now. And I want to know what's happening with Nick that everyone is keeping from me.
EJ: Greetings, indeed. I can tell by the look on your face that no introduction is necessary. You evidently know who I am.
Percy: Um--um, Mr. Fallon's due any m--
EJ: Mr. Fallon seldom comes to this office. He devotes most of his time to destroying the lives of people outside of it. And if he were to make an appearance, I've made arrangements for him as well.
EJ: As you know who I am... I'm fairly sure I can count on your cooperation.
Percy: Of course, Mr. DiMera.
EJ: Sit. Let's get to the point, shall we? It was you who took that rather invasive photograph of myself and ms. Deveraux, was it not? And who brought it to my house?
Percy: I did, sir.
EJ: Under the direction of Nick Fallon?
Percy: Yes, sir.
EJ: Such a waste. You ever stop to think about how much more pleasant and safe everybody's lives, including your own, would be if you'd left Mr. Fallon in the river where you found him?
Will: Hi. Oh, sorry. I-I didn't mean to scare you.
Gabi: It's okay. I'm the one who should be sorry for being late. You have other things to do.
Oh, it's no problem. Arianna's asleep, finally. Is everything okay? What?
Gabi: You know, people used to ask me that question all the time. It's such a nothing question. Meaningless. And sometimes things are okay, and sometimes they weren't. And it--it wasn't a big deal back then, but... I am so sorry.
Gabi: I'm really, really sorry, will.
Will: Gabi, you're scaring me. You keep saying that you're sorry in the way you're saying it, but so-- sorry for what?
Kate: Why, I wonder, would you ever think I've had any intention of ruining your day?
Jordan: Oh, gut feeling.
Kate: Huh. I've told you. I have no issue with you and Rafe, Jordan.
Jordan: [Chuckles] Yes, you have told me. But I don't believe you. And I'm pretty sure you would've been much happier had I just kept my distance like I did when I first came to town, but I was a different person then.
Kate: Well, you'll have to forgive me. I don't believe that your transformation was all due to Rafe. In fact, I don't believe you actually were ever the woman that you said you were before you even met him.
Rafe: I know that look. You're desperate. And you want me to talk some sense into Gabi, but how can I do that? How can I get her to listen to me if I don't actually know what I am dealing with? Sami, I need you to tell me what the hell is going on.
Sami: I can't, okay? I just--
Rafe: For the love of God.
Sami: I'm sorry. I understand that you are frustrated. We all are, okay? But you have to believe me that there is a very good reason that you do not know the whole story.
Rafe: Okay. That makes great sense. So you're asking--you want me to tell my sister to change her behavior, and yet I have no idea why she's behaving the way she is.
Sami: This is about the custody agreement. The way that it is drawn up now, will only gets to see Ari every other weekend.
Rafe: You're kidding me. There's no w-- and Gabi agreed to this?
Sami: Obviously this is Nick's idea. I understand that, all right? But he's the one who hired her lawyer.
Rafe: You're kidding me.
Sami: No. And he said that that's how lawyers operate. He said that--he said that the lawyer asks for more and then they work backwards. But I don't believe that. I think that Nick is going to tell her to leave it as it is.
Rafe: Well, I'm sure he'd never do that.
Sami: Gabi's not the one in charge here.
Rafe: Nick is.
Rafe: But you won't tell me how or why.
Sami: I can't.
Rafe: That son of a bitch. He's going around this whole time complaining about no one will trust him, that he's changed. He hasn't changed a damn bit.
Sami: Texting Gabi?
Rafe: Yup. I'm gonna get her to meet me right now, and she's gonna tell me everything. Oh, and I can guarantee you one thing. There is no way that she is gonna keep will away from Arianna.
Will: Gabi, whatever it is you've done, it can change.
Gabi: I have to get this.
Will: Don't do this. Do not take our daughter away from me!
Gabi: I swear to you, I want you to see Arianna as much as you want whenever you want, I swear to you.
Will: Okay. Good. But you're sorry?
Gabi: I'm sorry because of Nick. Everything's gonna be okay. It has to be.
Will: Don't tell me that he's changed.
Gabi: He has. He has changed. And I have to say it, and I have to believe it, because if I don't, will, then I'm gonna lose my mind. I have to go see my little girl.
Abigail: I really--I just wanted to, um, apologize...
Abigail: To you for what happened the other day.
Abigail: You know, Ben really misunderstood things.
Nick: Yeah. Yeah, he did. But... he's not the one I'm worried about.
Nick: Yeah. You. I mean, maybe you should take a tip from what happened to your mom last night. Or what almost happened to your mom that could've been a lot worse.
Abigail: What are you talking about?
Nick: Getting involved with the wrong guy can come back to haunt you.
EJ: Mr. Ruggles, does anybody other than you and Mr. Fallon have knowledge of the photograph you took of myself and ms. Deveraux?
Percy: No, sir.
EJ: And you were instructed to follow Abigail to smith island that day?
Percy: Yes, sir.
EJ: By Mr. Fallon?
Percy: Mr. Fallon was planning his return, and was considering speaking to his cousin first, but after I alerted him to ms. Devereaux's itinerary, he seemed curious--
Percy: Oh, um, may I answer that, sir?
EJ: Why bother? Where you're going, you're not gonna need a telephone.
Abigail: If you have a point, Nick, I'm not getting it.
Nick: I'm talking about Ben, Abigail. Unless--is there some other person that you've been seeing lately?
Abigail: No, I'm not seeing Ben, okay? I'm not seeing anyone, actually. I barely even know Ben.
Nick: Well, he wasn't acting like that the other day. I mean, anybody who saw that would've said that the two of you had something going on bet--
Abigail: Nick, stop, okay? You're way outta line here, all right? We were arguing, and when you stepped closer to me, you got really intense.
Nick: Really intense? As in what, dangerous? Are you saying there's some reason that you should be afraid of me? I have to pay the price. Is that it? Your new acquaintance assaults me, and that's my fault. Unbelievable.
Abigail: Nick, stop. What is wrong with you?
Nick: What is wrong with me? We're family, Abigail. Doesn't that count for anything with you?
Abigail: Of course it does. You know that. It's--Ben isn't even--
Nick: What, he's not a psycho? A stalker? How do you think he knew where we were? Tell me you're not that naive, Abigail. What, you think he just wandered upon the two of us having a private conversation?
Abigail: I don't understand, Nick, where is all of this coming from?
Nick: That's because you're not thinking. You need to start drawing a distinction between the people who really care about you and the people who are trying to control you.
EJ: You can consider your relationship with Mr. Fallon terminated. When you go downstairs, you will find two gentlemen waiting for you.
Percy: Uh, two--two gentlemen?
EJ: They're gonna take you on a ride to your house, where you're gonna furnish them with everything you have that pertains to your relationship with Mr. Fallon. Then you're gonna go and get your passport, they're gonna take you to an airstrip, and you're gonna get on a plane back to Devon.
EJ: Devon, Mr. Ruggles. You remember Devon. Where the wild ponies roam. You can consider yourself very lucky that I'm putting you out to pasture. I don't really care what you do in Devon. Watch birds. But I wouldn't come back to Salem if I were you. Do we understand one another?
Percy: I am, if nothing else, a practical man.
EJ: Good boy. Now, I'm sure you can understand that you've really tested the limits of my patience and generosity. So do me a favor. Get out of my sight.
Sonny: Hey, are you okay? I ran right over.
Will: You are not gonna believe the scene that I just had with Gabi. She kept saying she was sorry, endless apologies, and then she goes on to say that I can visit Ari whenever I want to.
Sonny: You know what? She's--she's lost. And we really can't blame her because Nick has complete control over her. And I feel she thinks she can't fight him.
Will: Well, she can't. He can put her away in prison whenever he wants to, just like the rest of us.
[Knock at door]
Rafe: Hey. How's it going?
Gabi: So who told you?
Rafe: Who told me what?
Gabi: About the custody agreement.
Jordan: You're desperate and bitter. Sheryl couldn't help you concoct your story about me so you shipped her off to Houston, taking whatever consolation, and depriving me of having a close friend nearby.
Kate: Hmm. Your paranoia that I am out to get you is nothing if not consistent and laughable.
Jordan: Oh, can we just stop lying to each other, Kate? You have been trying to dig up dirt about me for weeks and weeks, and you have found nothing. And that is because there is nothing to find.
Kate: Oh, my God. You're right. Let's stop lying to each other, Jordan. Let's get it all out in the open. Let's end it right now.
Kate: For a professional liar, you have a terrible tell. But you're lucky, because I have bigger fish to fry at the moment. So enjoy your happy time with Rafe. Who knows? Maybe when the truth comes out about you, he will have fallen for you so hard that he won't even care.
Jordan: There is nothing to come out. I'm not gonna have you throwing this--
Kate: Don't push me, Jordan! Or whoever the hell you really are.
Jordan: You know nothing. You are just a bully. A woman scorned. You know your best days are behind you, and you cannot accept the fact that Rafe saw that too, and he dumped you.
Kate: I told you I will not let Rafe be hurt. Not by who you were, not by who you are, and not by who you plan to be next, Joan Cooper!
Rafe: Doesn't matter who told me. 'Cause I know you. I know the type of person you are, I know that you would never want to sign an agreement that limits will's contact with Arianna to every other weekend. Gabi?
Gabi: That's exactly what I want, Rafe.
Will: If Nick is completely controlling Gabi, if she feels forced to do whatever he wants her to do to keep herself and the rest of us out of prison, then... we could lose Ari.
Sonny: Will, listen to me. I don't care what we have to do, but we're not gonna let that happen.
Sami: Abigail, hi. Thank you so much for meeting me. I know you didn't want to meet here.
Abigail: It's no big deal. So what do you want to talk to me about?
Sami: Oh, it's about Nick. Uh, come on. Uh, listen. I know that you're kind of close to him, and I am desperate here.
Sami: Nick is trying to take will's daughter away from will and Sonny. And I just need to find someone that he trusts, that he cares about, someone who will convince him what a terrible idea that is.
Abigail: I know exactly who to call.
Nick: Percy, I need those patent papers that I--
EJ: You wanted my attention, Mr. Fallon. You have it.
