Abigail: I hope it's okay that I just, um, stopped by like this.
Ben: Oh, yeah. Of course. Of course.
Abigail: Actually, um, I was kind of hoping we could talk... about us.
Daniel: No, no, no problem. I have surgery scheduled a little later today. Yeah. No, I will take care of it when I get there. Okay, thank you. Bye. Let me just find my keys. What is that? That's weird. Is this JJ's?
Eve: Who's there with you?
JJ: No one. And Abigail won't be back till tonight, till late.
Eve: Good. I'll come over. This is important, JJ.
JJ: Fine. Whatever. I'm here.
Eve: Stay there.
[Knock at door]
Eve: Hi, Eric.
[Knock at door]
Paige: Hey, you.
Paige: [Giggles] I changed my mind about going to the hospital today. So what should we do?
Theresa: So you think getting me pregnant is the stupidest thing you've ever done.
Theresa: No, that's nice. Nice, Brady. That's really nice. You know what? I'll tell you what. Here's something that will just make your day. Yes, you helped make this baby, but since that just seems like such an awful concept for you, suck on this--you're not needed anymore, so you can just go now. And you know what? Go to hell.
Aiden: Interesting reading? Guess I deluded myself into thinking it wasn't on the internet anymore, but, uh, hey, there it is. Four years ago, everyone in Portland thought I'd murdered my wife in cold blood.
JJ: Hey, uh, I'm just returning the coat I borrowed last night.
Daniel: I didn't know you had it. Absolutely. It has to be JJ's. I think he'll need that back.
JJ: I thought you were, uh, watching Daniel operate today. What happened?
Paige: Oh... I see. Uh... I decided Daniel's not who... Dr. Jonas doesn't need me hanging around him all the time.
[Cell phone ringing]
JJ: Well, if it bothered him, he wouldn't have said that it was okay.
Paige: Uh, so what'd you have planned for today?
Eve: Come in. You know, I would offer you something, but, actually, I am on my way out.
Eric: All right, well, I won't keep you. I just wanted to stop by and show you the retouched photo you emailed me about.
Eve: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Eric: Plus, I'm concerned about you. After I saw you in the square, well, you--
Eve: Yeah, you thought I was headed for a really bad night? I was. It was.
Eric: Listen, I hope I didn't make things worse.
Eve: No. No, none of last night was on you, really, trust me.
Eric: You still seem upset. Is there anything I can do to help?
Theresa: Don't touch me.
Brady: Okay. Just listen to me. I'm sorry you heard me say that. All right? I'm--this whole thing has got me frustrated, and I'm angry about it, and I don't-- I was just blowing off some steam, and if I could take that remark back, I would.
Theresa: I bet there's a lot of things you wish you could take back.
Brady: Look, if you're-- if you're pregnant--
Theresa: I am. Oh, but wait. You don't have to take my word for it anymore or pretend that it isn't happening. So did they run the test? Am I pregnant?
Ben: Great for you to stop by. I mean, I'm always happy to see you, but I just figured you'd be working at the hospital today.
Abigail: Uh, I was just there part-time today. I start full-time tomorrow.
Ben: Okay. So that's great. It looks like we both have something to celebrate, then-- my apartment, your job.
Abigail: You really feel that way, Ben? I mean, you're not still upset that Chad was the one who--
Ben: No, look, how you got the job doesn't matter. All that matters is you're happy. I want that more than anything.
[Knock at door]
Daniel: Hey, mom.
Maggie: Hey, yourself.
Maggie: If you weren't in your own home, I'd say you look at little lost.
JJ: Do you want to go grab some coffee at the club?
Paige: I'd rather stay here.
JJ: Oh. Right.
Paige: Are you worried about something?
JJ: No. Nah.
Paige: You know, I meant what I said yesterday... about wanting to start fresh. In fact... it's, uh--it's too early for a 2015 calendar, so I made one that starts with this month.
JJ: Wow. [Laughs]
Paige: Lots of old memories.
JJ: This is awesome.
Eve: Actually, I'd really like to forget about every single second of the last 24 hours.
Eric: That bad? You know, sometimes talking about it helps--
Eve: Oh, no, no, no. Mm-mm. I don't want to bore you with the drama of my life. But, uh, for your information, it started when I found out I couldn't have my throat surgery. It turns out, what I need done is not possible and chances of me ever having a singing career are done.
Eric: I'm sorry. I know how much it meant to you.
Eve: Yeah... pretty much everything. That's actually why I was pounding down those drinks last night. Could I ask you a favor?
Eric: Yeah, sure.
Eve: Well, would you mind keeping the news about my surgery under your hat for a little while?
Eric: Of course.
Eve: Thanks. It's just--I haven't told my sister yet, and I know that you were looking for her yesterday and...
Eric: I was, yeah.
Eve: Yeah, well, you know, she's having some new drama in her life. I just--I just can't deal with it right now, okay?
Kayla: Theresa, I'm very sorry... but the test results won't be back for another hour.
Theresa: An hour? [Scoffs] Man.
Kayla: Yeah, so, listen, why don't the two of you go to the pub and get something to eat? And as soon as the test results come back, I will take my break, and I will deliver them to you personally.
Theresa: Thank you. I'll be there. I actually want to know the truth. I can't wait.
Kayla: Okay. I will see you then.
Brady: Thanks. Hey, hey, hey. What do you say we do a reboot and, uh... start again?
Aiden: I didn't kill Meredith, hope. But you don't have to take my word for it. It's all there... online. Enjoy.
Aiden: Oh, I almost forgot. I brought these for you... for being a bit of a jerk earlier in the square. I'm sorry.
Hope: Please don't go. Don't leave.
Hope: First, thank you for these. But, Aiden, you need to understand--
Aiden: Hope, I do. I-I... I understand. Look, if you wanted to run an online search on me, you would've done it a long time ago. Quite frankly, I'm surprised you waited this long.
Hope: I know you're a very private person. I wanted to respect that.
Aiden: Well, thank you. But if you hadn't seen me with Bree Tjaden or completely overreact with Nicole, you probably still wouldn't know, so...
Aiden: Now you know why I thought Nicole's idea wasn't so hot. My past as entertainment-- quite a concept, considering. Well, I'll go, let you get back to your reading.
Hope: No, wait. I don't want to read about it.
Aiden: Seriously? You'd rather stay in the dark?
Hope: No. I want you to tell me what happened.
Abigail: The reason I came here was because I wanted to talk to you about something, something important. When you were upset that Chad was the one who got me my job back... I should have paid more attention to the way that made you feel, Ben.
Ben: Well, I didn't even give you a chance. I just started mouthing off, making it all about me, you know, and... sometimes it just really hits home. I've got to be the dumbest guy alive.
Ben: I'm serious. Abigail, for the first time in my life, I have somebody who is smart and beautiful and just totally special. And when something pops up that makes me feel like I could lose that... lose you... I go crazy.
Abigail: Well, I would probably do the same thing... because I don't want to lose you either.
Abigail: Yes, really. Yes, I'm with someone who is so amazing, who cares about me, just me... who isn't trying to manipulate things or play some kind of angle. You make me really happy, Ben. And I want to be with you.
JJ: This is so cool. It must have been a ton of work.
Paige: Not really. Well, a little bit, yeah. But I didn't even think about it. All I thought about was you. I love it when we're together. It just feels so perfect.
Eric: No worries. I've already forgotten what you said.
Eve: Thank you.
Eric: So you know what? I'll email you when I'm done with those photos.
Eve: Okay. Thanks, Eric, so much.
Eric: You're welcome.
Brady: [Sighs] You sure you don't want something to eat?
Theresa: I'm not hungry... slightly nauseated, actually, although it was worse this morning. I took one sip of coffee. I had to dump the rest down the drain. Look, uh... in case you're wondering... after Kayla runs the pregnancy test and proves that I'm pregnant, I'll have her run a paternity test as well.
Brady: I... I'm sure that we don't need that.
Maggie: When does Parker get home?
Daniel: Um, a couple more days, yeah.
Maggie: Oh, I miss that little guy.
Maggie: I bought him a couple of action figures at the toy store yesterday.
Daniel: Mom, he has too many toys already. He doesn't need--
Maggie: You know what? You aren't trying to talk me out of spoiling my grandson, are you? Please. 'Cause it won't work.
Maggie: Honey, is something else bothering you? You just seem all--I don't know--out of focus today.
Daniel: Well, you might as well know. It's, um... it's about Jennifer.
Aiden: There's no way to sugarcoat it. Meredith and I were... well, unhappy wouldn't even begin to describe it. But we loved chase. So we both worked hard to keep the marriage going. Maybe we shouldn't have. I-I don't know. My God, the fights, you know... neighbors on both sides of us in Portland, our second home in Puget sound, they could tell you how we fought... every day... just constantly talking about divorce. You know, never with each other, always with, you know, friend, co-worker, anyone who'd listen, but... it always came back to chase. Neither one of us wanted to lose our son, you know, or break his heart by splitting up. You understand that all too well, I know.
Hope: I do.
Aiden: So we stuck it out... although it became increasingly difficult. I guess we all find different ways, you know, to numb the pain. For Meredith, it was alcohol... which is why I rarely touch the stuff. I just--I remember how it affected her, and I just became intolerant of that kind of behavior in other people, you know, this... myself too.
Aiden: And then... at some point... [Sighs] I'm not sure... where or why... although I can speculate why, of course... she, um... she had a gun. And, uh, you know, occasionally when she was drinking, she would just make these threats. You know, she was gonna take chase away. She was gonna use the gun on me. She was gonna use the gun on herself. The thing is, the... the gun was never loaded... until that night. My budget used to be a real downer.
Aiden: Um... we were on the sound that weekend. Chase was sleeping. So Meredith and I--you know, we--we got into it. I don't remember what started it all. I do remember that... the more we fought, the more she would be drinking and the angrier that made me. But, you know, she... she wouldn't stop. Just kept yelling at me, you know... and accused me of being a bad father, bad husband, bad person. Of course, the things I said to her, you know, uh... beyond cruel. It was ugly. To say that to a woman I once loved... she went into the bedroom... she came out. She had a gun, you know. She started saying she was-- she was gonna kill herself. This is something she had said before to me, you know, and, uh... but this time she started loading it in front of me. So I had to believe her. She raised the gun to her head... and I panicked, you know. I-I-I didn't know what to do. I just said... "don't. You'll wake chase." That's what I said. She had a gun to her head, and I said, "don't do it. You'll wake our son." But the thing is... it stopped her. It stopped her... 'cause she... [Exhales deeply] She loved our son. She did. She did, but she--she--she hated me more... because she put the gun back up to her head. Now, this time, I jumped up to grab the gun, but she pulled back. She pulled the trigger. She shot herself.
Brady: I think the key to this whole thing is to take it one step at a time.
Brady: Although... if you're pregnant, I assume you know marriage is not an option.
Theresa: Trust me, I'm still enough of a catholic to promise you this--no abortion.
Brady: If you tried, I'd fight you.
Theresa: So... you want a child?
Brady: Yeah. I always have.
Theresa: Just not like this, right?
Daniel: Mom... I know Jennifer means the world to you. And you have always been rooting for us to make a go of it.
Daniel: But before she went down to see her mom for a few weeks, we had a talk. And we were both very frank, open, brutally honest. And I'll have to admit, it is hard to accept. And I know it's gonna be hard for you to accept too, but we decided... it's--it's over.
Maggie: Daniel, no. Come on, now, you can't give up. You got to give it a try.
Daniel: I'm sorry.
Maggie: Oh, honey, I'm sorry too. I'm sorry too.
[Cell phone vibrating]
Paige: What's wrong?
JJ: Nothing, nothing. I just, uh--I just got to check this real quick, and I might have to make a call, but I'll be right back.
Paige: Well, can't you just--
Paige: Uh, I'll get it.
Brady: Being a father is something I've thought about a lot. I love kids. [Chuckles] It's just--the timing has never been, uh...
Theresa: Don't even think about trying to take my baby away from me.
Brady: I wouldn't do that. Listen, I would never do that, okay? If you are pregnant, we will find a way. We will figure out a way to raise this child. But we'll do it together.
Daniel: I'll tell you, one of the things I will not regret, ever... knowing Jennifer... loving her. I mean, I think anyone who's lucky enough to have Jennifer Horton in their life... is better for it.
Maggie: I agree.
Daniel: And now I just-- I have got to focus on what I do have, what blessings I do have. I have--I got Melanie. I have you.
Daniel: And I got that little man. I got my man... Parker. I-I got a family.
Maggie: Yes, you bet you do.
Daniel: Oh, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Mm-mm.
Maggie: Sounds like you're gonna be all right.
Daniel: Eventually, yeah. [Chuckles] Yeah.
Maggie: [Chuckles] Daniel?
Maggie: What is that? That, next to the toy?
Maggie: I don't think I've ever seen you with a money clip.
Daniel: No, no, that's JJ's. He borrowed my coat, and it was in the pocket.
Daniel: Probably-- well, I guess I should probably drop by the house and... and give it to him.
JJ: Is there somebody at the door?
Eve: Hello, uh, JJ.
JJ: Hello, ms. Larson.
Eve: I, uh, want to talk to your mom. Is she around?
JJ: No. Uh, she, uh--she's visiting her mom, but, uh... she probably won't be back for, like, a week or so.
Eve: Oh, well, that's too bad, 'cause I just wanted to, you know, talk to her about something, but...
Paige: You came all the way over here just to talk to her?
Eve: No, actually, I didn't. That stupid lawyer sent her royalty check to us by mistake, so... here, I've got it right here. I wanted to give it to her in person, but will you make sure that she gets it?
Eve: Okay. Great. Hey.
Eve: Why did you casually blow off your internship today, hmm? Paige, I asked you a question, sweetheart.
Paige: This has got to be, like, fate.
Eve: Excuse me?
Paige: It is! It was meant to be! Mom, remember how I said I wanted us to have a fresh start? Well, I was actually just about to tell JJ how good things were, you know, with you and me. And I want it to be that way for all of us.
Eve: Well, honey, that's-- that's very--that's a really wonderful goal. But it's actually a little too idealistic, actually, because--
Paige: No, mom, I'm serious. It can work, I mean, if we try, if we make an effort. I really think the problem is, is you and JJ just haven't gotten to know each other well enough. Here, okay... I think we should all go out and talk it through. It can work. I know it can. Please?
Aiden: Thank God chase was a heavy sleeper. Guess he had to be, you know. I mean, every time he went to bed, Meredith and I would start with the screaming and the yelling and... although, this time, he woke up... from the sirens. He was crying, you know, as... as if he already knew.
Hope: Did he see her? Did he see his mom?
Aiden: No. No, when the emergency crews got there, I... was holding him. It's all I could do, is just hold him. Finally, my sister got there. She... she took him away, so then the police could interview me and... deal with Meredith's body. They let me go the next morning. There were no--no charges... although...
Hope: Though, what?
Aiden: [Sighs] Well, when the police first got there, things looked pretty bad for me. Um... look, I'm an attorney. I know exactly what not to do. I didn't protect myself... and I should have... for chase's sake, you know, but I-I-I couldn't help myself. You know, yeah... I tried stopping the bleeding. Then I quickly realized it was hopeless, you know. So I... I was holding Meredith, and I took the gun from her hand, and I put it down. Now my prints were all over it. [Chuckles] But I just kept thinking-- you know, I just kept thinking that I didn't--
Hope: You didn't want her to die alone.
Aiden: You know, she... she looked up at me... and her last words to me, to anyone... "I hate you." [Scoffs] I just kept holding her and... saw the light go out. Just sitting there, thinking... "this is what it's come to." You know, it's... it's sad. I feel like part of me died too.
Ben: I'm going to make you a promise. I promise you that I am not going to let anyone or anything ruin this for us.
Paige: Okay, the main thing is we need to put everything that's happened in the past and leave it there, right?
Paige: Okay, see, we already agree on one thing. This is so good! We're gonna find a way to-- oh!
Eve: Oh, honey! Oh, my gosh, did it burn you?
Paige: It's all over my blouse. I'm such a klutz.
Eve: Well, you know what? Take this into the bathroom and wet it with some cold water and just sponge it out, and then I'll take care of it when we get home, okay, sweetheart?
Paige: I'll be right back. Actually, mom, can you come with me? I want to make sure I do it right.
Eve: Oh, uh, sure. Sure, sure, sure. Come on.
JJ: Eve's not going to say anything. I'm not going to say anything. It'll be fine.
Daniel: Hey. Just the guy I was looking for.
Aiden: Hope, you, uh... you are the only person I've ever talked to about what happened those last few minutes. Aside from the police, you're about the only person I've ever talked to about any of it.
Hope: It's a terribly painful memory to live with.
Aiden: It is... mostly because my son, you know. Because Meredith and I-- we just wouldn't, or we couldn't, stop the constant battles... it cost chase his mother.
Hope: How much does chase remember about that night?
Aiden: Oh... very little. We moved a couple times, so there was no one around to tell him.
Hope: Has he asked any questions?
Aiden: No. Never. I'm not sure if it's because he doesn't know the right questions to ask or... he knows that the answers would be too hard for me to give. Maybe he's the brave one, you know. Maybe he's the one protecting me all these years. He's such a... he's such a good boy, you know. I just don't know how I could let him down like that, you know. I'm not gonna let that happen. [Sobbing]
Brady: You know, Daniel and Chloe are doing a pretty good job with Parker. You know, we could use what they do as a guide.
Theresa: Yeah, but Parker's not in school yet.
Brady: Right, I know, just nursery school, but... you're right--things are still flexible. Once he hits kindergarten, there has to be one primary parent.
Theresa: Yeah, and there's the whole problem with work too.
Brady: Yeah, but I know-- I mean, I know Maggie and Victor, they'll...
Theresa: The whole free world's going to be in this kid's life, right?
Brady: Don't worry about that. I won't let anybody push you out, Theresa, okay? We'll do this as a team.
Theresa: Here's Kayla. So, uh... how far along am I?
Kayla: Theresa, maybe we should talk one-on-one.
Theresa: No way. No. Brady and I are together on this all the way. We're not going to keep any secrets about our child.
Kayla: There is no child.
Kayla: You're not pregnant.
Daniel: You, uh--you with someone?
JJ: Paige and her mom.
Daniel: And her mom?
Daniel: Yeah, you think that's a good thing?
JJ: I don't know. Paige wanted to do it. She thinks that we can, like, start over and, you know, be friends or something.
Daniel: Well, good luck with that. Well, in case they stick you with the bill, I brought you a little something. When you were wearing my coat last night, you left this in the pocket.
Aiden: Look, I, uh-- I should've told you about all this when we first started getting serious. And I mean this, okay? If you want to walk away and not look back, I will not blame you.
Hope: No. I'm not going anywhere.
Aiden: Thank you. Thank you for being someone I can trust... to listen, care. For so long, it's felt like life has been pressing in on me, like I just couldn't breathe. [Sighs] Now I can. Now I can. I love you, Hope. I want to be with you... now.
