Chad: You look amazing.

Zoe: Thank you.

Abigail: So you're going to the picnic?

Zoe: No, I'm going to a meeting at the junior league.

[Both chuckle]

Chad: I asked her if she could join us. That's not gonna be a problem, is it?

Abigail: Did you explain about Theo?

Zoe: "Explain"?

Abigail: Chad's nephew's on the spectrum, and, you know, sometimes it takes him a while to warm up to a new person.

Zoe: Okay.

Abigail: I was just letting you know, because I wouldn't want you to get the wrong impression is all.

Zoe: No, I-I understand. I appreciate your telling me.

Chad: I should have told you.

Abigail: Well, I-I guess I-I'll see you guys there. Um, hope you're hungry.

Zoe: Oh. Now, I was wondering why you called me this morning. This explains everything, doesn't it?

Brady: Oh, hey, buddy. Did you have a good nap, huh?

Hayley: Oh, he did, Mr. Black. Slept very soundly.

Brady: Yeah?

Hayley: Now he's so happy to be with his dad.

Brady: I'm happy to be with him. How you doing? How are you? You look like you grew. Did you grow an inch?

Hayley: I think he did.

Brady: Kind of looks like it. I think he gained a pound too.

[Both laugh]

Brady: Hey, buddy.

Abe: Well, john, thank you for volunteering to haul all this stuff for the game.

John: No problem, partner. It's gonna be a great game.

Ben: Hey.

John: Hey, Ben.

Ben: Hey, man.

Abe: How's it going?

Ben: Oh, it's good. It's good. I was wondering if Theo wanted to go swimming before his game.

Abe: Hey, how about it?

Theo: Nope, not without Abigail and uncle Chad.

Adrienne: Hi, Jason. Is sonny around?

Jason: Uh, no. He hasn't come in yet.

Adrienne: Oh. Okay, I guess I'll text him. Thanks.

Lucas: [Clears throat] Hey.

Adrienne: Lucas, hi.

Lucas: Hi. Um, I saw you come in, and you looked upset.

Adrienne: I'm trying to track down my son... to tell him that his father and I are divorcing.

Will: See? There's a beautiful view of the lake.

Sonny: [Sighs] Yeah, I like our usual spot.

Will: Oh, let's be crazy, you know, get a new spot for the summer of Salem picnic? Live life on the edge?

Sonny: I'd rather be near Abigail and Ben and our friends.

Will: Yeah, but, you know, I thought it'd be nice to have some private time, just the three of us.

Sonny: And there's no kids. Ari's not going to have anyone to play with.

[Men laughing]

Derrick: So you shoved me underwater just because I--and these are your words here--wiped the courts with you, huh? What a sore loser.

Paul: You just have terrible balance, that's all.

Derrick: Yeah. So wish you were playing for the cubs now?

Paul: Ah, I wish I was playing for anybody.

Derrick: So much for baseball.

Abigail: [Sighs] Well, sonny, you're wrong. Chad doesn't have feelings for me. He just pretended to so that he could pay me back. Oh, damn! I left my sunglasses there.

Chad: Sorry. I, uh--I don't know what you mean.

Zoe: Chad... I'm not Abigail, okay? I'm a grown-up. I know you don't want me to meet your nephew or eat hot dogs. You invited me to this picnic-- you dressed me for this picnic for one reason.

Chad: Yes, and that reason is because if I have to attend the Salem summer picnic, I would rather do it with somebody who is beautiful and interesting.

Zoe: No. You invited me to make Abigail jealous.

Chad: [Scoffs] What would give you that idea?

Zoe: Um, I have eyes?

Chad: Okay, yeah, well, maybe you should get them checked out, because what you're seeing isn't there.

Zoe: [Scoffs] Look, I've told you--I'm not looking for anything exclusive, but I don't like to be used.

Chad: Who's using you?

Zoe: You are. So why don't you figure out your feelings about miss Abigail and then get back to me?

Chad: [Sighs]

Ben: Well, Abigail will be here later. I don't know where Chad is, though.

Theo: Why aren't they coming together?

Ben: I'm not sure. [Chuckles] But I think I actually saw Paul heading that way.

John: Oh, thanks for the heads-up.

Abe: Hey, man, thank you.

John: See you later.

Ben: Hey, I'll see you later.

John: Yeah.

Abe: So are you gonna go swimming?

Theo: It's more fun when Abigail and uncle Chad are here.

Abe: Well, they'll be here. We got here early.

Ben: Hey, Theo... you ever been tubing? No? It's pretty cool. Check it out. I brought this inner tube, and when I spin you around on it, it's gonna feel like you're on the Colorado river. I do it to Abigail all the time.

Theo: Can I spin her too?

Ben: I think that when she gets here, the chances are real good.

Theo: Yeah!

Ben: Real good! Let's go. Let's go.

Abe: [Laughs]

Chad: Zoe... look, I pay you to be the editor of Sonix, not my shrink. I told you the reason I wanted you to come to the picnic was because my nephew was gonna be there and I wanted you to meet him.

Zoe: And so Abigail and her hot boyfriend could see us frolicking with the kid.

Chad: Okay, well, do you think he's hot?

Zoe: Yeah, Chad, I think he's hot. But don't worry. He is not as hot as you are.

Chad: Okay, look... here's the deal. Theo, my nephew... he really liked hanging out with Abigail and me, and I do not want to disappoint him, because Abigail is ancient history. And she has been for a very long time.

Zoe: So, when I saw the way that you looked at her...

Chad: You were imagining things. Abigail and I are done, over, finito.

Zoe: [Chuckles] Hmm. You keep telling yourself that. Maybe you'll actually start to believe it.

Abigail: [Exhales sharply]

Paul: Hi.

Sonny: Hey.

Paul: Uh, you guys--you guys remember derrick, right?

Sonny: Yeah, how's it going?

Will: Sure, of course.

Derrick: Good to see you.

John: Nice day for a picnic, isn't it?

Paul: John! I didn't know you'd be here.

John: Ah, I can't stay. Just dropping off equipment for the little league game.

Paul: Right. Oh, this is my friend derrick. John's my dad.

Derrick: Hey. Oh, your dad?

Paul: Yeah.

John: That's a fact. Nice to meet you, derrick.

Derrick: Nice to meet you.

John: And you guys-- surprised to see you here. Doc said she didn't think you were gonna make it this year.

Sonny: We didn't think we'd make it either. I thought I'd have to cover the club, but this guy showed up and got me here.

John: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Derrick: Ah, too bad you guys weren't here earlier to see me destroy Paul on the tennis court.

Paul: Hey, I've got a bum shoulder.

Derrick: Well, it's the only sport I can win at anyways, so give me a break. Except maybe beach volleyball.

Will: Oh, sonny kills at beach volleyball.

Paul: I remember you used to--

Derrick: Oh, you play?

Paul: Well, I've pushed my shoulder enough already.

Will: Well, sonny, why don't you go play? It'll be fine. I'll look after Ari.

Derrick: Yeah, you in?

Sonny: Uh, why not? Yeah. Come on, let's do it.

John: And I'm due over at Brady's, so I'd better get running.

Paul: Well, I'll walk you over to your car.

John: All right, sounds good. Will, see you later.

Will: See you.

John: Everything all right?

Paul: Yeah. Why?

John: I don't know. It just kind of felt like I walked in on something.

Paul: You didn't. Everything's fine.

Brady: [Babbling]

Theresa: So... aw, I see he's up.

Brady: What are you doing here?

Theresa: I, uh--I lost my tablet. I thought maybe it was in here. But, um, nope. Guess it's not. Hey, Hayley, would you mind looking for my tablet? I think maybe I left it in the sunroom.

Hayley: Theresa, my job is to be here for Tate.

Theresa: I need it for work.

Hayley: I'm not your maid.

Theresa: Where the hell do you get off talking to me like that?

Brady: Excuse me. She's following my instructions. Would you mind giving him a bottle?

Hayley: Yeah.

Brady: There's a few things I need to get straightened out with Theresa. Come on. Living with chronic migraine

Lucas: Listen, what I don't get is why you haven't already told sonny about the divorce.

Adrienne: I haven't told any of my boys yet. You haven't said anything to will, have you?

Lucas: No, no, I wouldn't do that. It's not my place. Plus, sonny and will have enough problems of their own.

Adrienne: Hmm, right. And as usual, my timing is all wrong. But I feel I just can't wait any longer. I need to be honest with my boys, starting with sonny. What?

Lucas: Just wondering why you feel that you can't wait. Is it because, uh... you've made a decision on where you want to go from here?

Derrick: Hey, uh, before we go play...

Sonny: What?

Derrick: I just wanted to apologize for the whole thing-- you know, telling you about will coming to see Paul at the hotel and... you know, if I had any idea will was your husband...

Sonny: Oh, that's okay. I mean, how would you know that?

Derrick: You're right, I wouldn't, but, uh, I can only imagine how complicated it is, and I hope it works out, 'cause you guys seem like great guys.

Sonny: Well, thanks for saying that. And it will. It'll work out.

Derrick: Good. Especially since you guys are married and, you know, have a kid, which is unbelievable to me, 'cause I mean, you're so young. I mean, it's great, but... anyway, uh... there's the sign-up sheet. I'll go put us down.

Will: You getting sleepy, honey? Do you want to go take a nap in your stroller? Yeah.

John: You didn't know sonny and will were gonna be here, did you?

Paul: No. I, uh... but I knew when I decided to stay in Salem, I was going to be running into them a lot.

John: Yeah, Salem can be a pretty small town sometimes. So how do you, uh--how do you know this--this derrick guy?

Paul: Oh, he was the bellman at the Salem inn. I met him when I first got out of the hospital.

John: Ah, I see. Well, he--he seems friendly.

Paul: He is.

John: Yeah. And you--you-- w-what else do you know about the guy?

Paul: [Chuckles]

John: What?

Paul: Nothing. It's just, uh-- it's kind of funny and--and cool.

John: What's funny cool?

Paul: [Laughs] I mean, that my new father is--is-- I don't know--is hovering. I guess that's the word. Asking me about a guy.

[Both laugh]

Ben: So, you made it.

Chad: Yeah. Um, Zoe, this is Ben Weston. Zoe's the editor of--

Ben: Yes, we've met before. I've served her a few cosmos at the club.

Zoe: Yeah. It's nice to see you again, Ben.

Ben: Same here.

Zoe: Oh, I do believe my friend phoebe is here, and it seems that she has found herself a new boy toy. Hmm. Excuse me, guys.

Chad: [Sighs]

Ben: Abe and Theo are talking to Theo's coach.

Chad: Where's Abby?

Ben: She'll be here soon.

Chad: Right. Well, you know, just so you know, I appreciate you doing this--coming to the picnic. I know your idea of a good time isn't hanging out with me.

Ben: Well, Theo's a good kid.

Chad: He didn't give you much of a choice, did he? Just so you know, Abby did try to get out of it.

Ben: Well, she loves Theo, so I'm not going to make any problems for her... just because you and I don't like each other.

Theresa: Got it. [Sighs]

Brady: Look, you can't order Hayley around.

Theresa: No, I just asked her to do me a favor so I could spend a few extra minutes with my baby. And you know what? I'm sorry, Brady. I didn't realize that was a felony.

Brady: No, what it is, is you are using Tate to get to me. I'm not going to have it. It's not going to happen.

Theresa: That's not what I'm doing.

Brady: Really? Why haven't you found a bigger place by now to stay in? Have you even started looking for a bigger place?

Theresa: Yes, yes, of course I have.

Brady: Well, then keep looking. Look, I'm going to make a deal with Hayley so she spends half the week here and half the week with you and Tate. But I'm telling you, if you keep treating her like a servant, she's not going to go for it.

Theresa: Why are you so worried about what she wants? For god sakes, Brady, she's your employee. You've known her what, ten minutes?

Brady: Theresa, she's a professional, and she is terrific with our son.

Theresa: Oh, yeah? How do you know? You don't spend any time here, and Tate can't talk.

Brady: I checked her references.

Theresa: Great, now you're taking her side over mine. You know what? I am so sorry, but I--

Brady: No, no you're not. No. Cut it out! Now. You wouldn't do half of your daily routine.

Theresa: Okay, look, I was just trying to say--

Brady: I don't care what you were trying to say. Our arrangement stipulates that you're supposed to be gone when I'm spending time with my son. So stop coming up with excuses to intrude upon my time with him, because that's not flying with me.

Theresa: I am not making any excuses, Brady, okay? I just--I forgot where I put my tablet, because I was so emotional because it's hard to say good-bye to your baby.

Brady: Theresa, stop. Give me a break. You're living in this house. Your baby's right down the hall. But you and I might as well be living on different continents because we are going to lead separate lives. Got it?

Theresa: Fine by me.

Brady: Thanks.

[Door slams]

Adrienne: Justin made the decision for both of us when he served me with divorce papers. But considering everything that's happened, I really shouldn't be surprised. Justin wanted out of our marriage. He slept with another woman and then used my infidelity as a green light to bail on me.

Lucas: And yet things still seem unsettled and tense.

Adrienne: Well, of course they're tense. Lucas, you, above anyone, should understand what that's like. You've been through it. I mean, Justin and I--we share our boys. We have a history.

Lucas: Yeah, I know. I know. I wasn't talking about Justin and you. I was talking about us.

John: Saw right through that one, didn't you?

Paul: [Chuckles] You really, uh, interrogate people for a living?

John: [Laughs]

Paul: I don't know. It made me feel like you--you accept who I am.

John: Well, you know, when I found out that I had another son and that son was gay, I figured, "I'd better start getting with the program here."

Paul: Well, I appreciate it.

John: All right, so, now, tell me about this derrick guy.

Paul: Derrick and I just play tennis. We're friends. That's it.

John: Oh, all right. Well, it's nice that you've made another friend here.

Paul: Yeah. Yeah, I told mom that I'm starting to feel pretty comfortable here in Salem.

John: Yeah? She okay with that?

Paul: I think so. [Chuckles] So how you doing?

John: Oh, you mean me and Marlena? It's getting better all the time.

Paul: So we're both doing good.

John: You know, we are both doing good. And I got to run. I'll see you.

Paul: Okay. Hey, give my nephew a kiss for me.

John: You know I will.

Paul: And tell Brady I want to hang out with him sometime and the baby too.

John: I'll do that. Good to see you again.

Paul: You too, man. Hey, if you, uh, want to go hang out with derrick and sonny, I don't mind watching Arianna.

Will: So, derrick, huh? That's great.

Abigail: Hey, guys.

Chad: Hi.

Ben: Hey.

Abigail: Hi, sorry I'm late.

Ben: Oh, you're not late at all. Mwah.

Abigail: Uh, where's Zoe?

Chad: Oh, uh, she's, uh, talking to some friends. She'll be back. Don't worry.

Abigail: Good. I'm not worried. That's great. Um, where's--where's Theo? Have you guys seen him?

Ben: Oh, yeah, he's with his dad talking to his baseball coach.

Chad: There she is. I missed you.

Zoe: Well, I'm here now.

Abigail: [Chuckles awkwardly]

Theo: Abigail!

Abigail: Oh, hi, buddy!

Abe: Hey.

Abigail: So when's your baseball game?

Abe: Well, another team forfeited, so his game got moved up. Theo's not going to have much more time to go swimming.

Theo: Can we go now? Can we? Can we?

Chad: If you chill out, all right, my man?

Theo: All right.

Chad: Hey, where'd you get this watch?

Theo: Ben let me wear it.

Ben: Yeah, he wants to see how many times per minute he can spin in that tube, huh?

Chad: Yeah? Well, that I would like to see. What do you say we go hit the lake?

Theo: Yay!

Chad: Yeah? All right. You coming, Zoe?

Zoe: Yeah, wouldn't miss it.

Theo: Come on, Abigail! Let's go now!

Abigail: I'll be right there, sweetie.

Abe: Well, I'm going to go see how soon I have to call him out of the water, all right?

Abigail: Okay. Bye. Hey. Thank you for doing this.

Ben: Oh, it's no problem. Go on. Theo's waiting for you.

Abigail: Okay. I'll be right back. Would you hold this for me?

Ben: Sure.

Abigail: Thank you.

Ben: [Chuckles] [Sighs]

Hayley: Oh, I bet all that fresh air made you hungry, didn't it? Yeah. You ready for your bottle now, sweetheart? Yeah.

Theresa: My tablet must be in here somewhere. [Sighs] Oh. [Scoffs] You know, I didn't appreciate that little moment we had before in front of Brady. I don't know why you're so determined to make me look bad.

Hayley: [Scoffs] I don't have to make you look bad. You take care of that all by yourself.

Theresa: Let's get a few things straight, cookie. I'm the mother here, and you are the hired help, okay?

Hayley: Come on, Tate, let's get your bottle, huh?

Theresa: [Sighs] A new smoke detector? Oh, my god. Seriously?

Lucas: I'm judging by your silence that today isn't the best day to talk about us.

Adrienne: You've been so patient with me. I know I've been distracted ever since I was served with those papers.

Lucas: It's okay. It's all right. I'm not going to put any pressure on you. Justin's done enough of that. But what I don't get, what I'm having trouble figuring out is, especially at a time like this, I haven't seen you.

Adrienne: I know.

Lucas: Talk to me. You can level with me, okay? Did you realize that you don't want this divorce?

Paul: I don't know what you're thinking about derrick and me, but I'll tell you what I told my dad. Derrick is an acquaintance who's become a friend.

Will: Well, I think it's great that the two of you are friends, although it looks like you guys are a little bit more than friends.

Paul: I'm not real sure what you're insinuating here, will.

Will: Well, it's just-- I've seen the chemistry between the two of you. Why wouldn't you be interested in him? He's hot. Obviously, he obviously thinks that you're hot, so...

Paul: Why are you pushing this, will? What are you so afraid of?

Abigail: Oh. [Chuckles] Theo is really into that inner tube Ben brought.

Zoe: Yeah. You should have told him to stop.

Abigail: Why? He was having fun.

Zoe: Yeah, but you look a little green.

Abigail: Oh, I was dizzy is all.

Zoe: Yeah? Do you feel sick?

Abigail: No, I don't feel sick. I'm just... uh, spinning, and it's a hot day, and, you know....

Zoe: Well, Ben and Chad can entertain Theo. It looks like they're actually getting along today.

Abigail: Why wouldn't they be getting along?

Zoe: I just thought... but I guess I was wrong. Oh, there's a guy selling hot dogs. Theo said he wanted one. How about I go buy some dogs and, uh, get the guys out of the water so we can have lunch?

Abigail: Yes. That sounds great.

Zoe: Great. Yo, hot dog guy!

Abigail: Oh, god, hot dogs. [Exhales sharply]

Hayley: He's digging it.

[Both laugh]

Hayley: He's dancing now.

John: Henderson told me my grandson is in here.

Brady: Oh, what, what, don't I rate anymore?

John: Later. Give me that kid. Come on.

Brady: No, dad, dad, he's actually scheduled to go out and get some fresh air right now. This is Hayley, our nanny, and this, you may have guessed, is my dad.

Hayley: Yeah. It's so nice to meet you, Mr. Black.

John: I've only heard great things about you, Hayley.

Brady: Here you go. Coming in. Oop.

John: Now, isn't this the cutest baby you've ever seen in your life?

Hayley: Yeah. You know, I think he looks like you. Yeah.

Theresa: I, uh, found my tablet. Just thought you should know I'm gonna go to work now.

Brady: All right, have a good one.

Theresa: Yeah, you too. Bye, Tate. Mommy will miss you. That is not what I had in mind. I need to come up with a plan ASAP.

Adrienne: Lucas, it doesn't matter whether I want this divorce or not.

Lucas: I think it does.

Adrienne: It's happening no matter what. [Sighs] It's different this time than it was the last time. It's not about hurt feelings or misunderstandings... or trying to get the other person to listen. It's just... final. But I don't want you to feel obligated to me in any way, either.

Lucas: What are you talking about? Obligated how?

Adrienne: Lucas, you are such a decent man. I don't want you to blame yourself for this, and I don't want you to feel like you have to rush into some kind of commitment to me. You and I... I don't think we're in a place to make any kind of commitment right now.

Lucas: Listen... whatever we have is just starting. Who knows where or how far it will go? But I'm okay with that.

John: The case isn't closed, but Xander's pretty good at covering his tracks. You know, what we need is a break here, like somebody that's close to him needs to roll on him.

Brady: Like Serena mason.

John: Or somebody who's close to Mr. Cook, yeah.

Brady: Keep me posted on that, all right?

John: Yeah, I will.

Brady: Oh, I heard something else. Justin and Kate, did they offer Paul a spokesman gig for mad world?

John: Yeah, it's a fact. In fact, he's going over the contract right now.

Brady: Interesting. What if he signs it?

John: That means that he could be hanging out in Salem for quite a while.

Will: Who's scared? I'm just telling it like I see it.

Paul: You're seeing what you want to see. Derrick and I play tennis. That's it.

Will: If you say so.

Paul: Does sonny know that you brought him here because you want him to think that something's going on between derrick and me?

Will: Ah, hmm, mm, mm. I'm here because I wanted to spend time with my husband and my daughter.

Paul: If that's what you wanted, how come you didn't spread your blanket by the water so that your baby could play in the sand? How come you picked a spot with the perfect view of the tennis courts?

Will: Paul, you can't really think that I organize my life around you.

Paul: Let me tell you something, will. It is perfectly normal for two gay men to be friends without sleeping together. And you and sonny would know that if you had any gay friends.

Will: Like you?

Paul: This thing that you're doing, these desperate antics to hang on to sonny... all you're going to do is push him away.

Will: Don't you start telling me what's going to happen with sonny and me.

Derrick: Whoo! Well, that was easy. You guys should have seen us.

Sonny: Crushed 'em. Everything okay?

Chad: No, no, no, Theo, you stay where I can see you, okay, buddy?

Ben: [Exhales sharply]

Chad: Whoo! Hey, man, thank you for letting Theo and me win that Frisbee contest. You know, his therapist says it's important for him to be winning right now and that kids like him need to build his self-esteem.

Ben: Well, that's good. But I didn't let him win. Kid totally kicked my ass.

Chad: Yeah, okay, well, then next time, he can be on your team. Hey, hot dogs are here. Hey, Theo, come on, get a hot dog, buddy!

Theo: With mustard and pickle relish?

Abigail: Yeah, that's how you like them, right?

Theo: Where's my hot dog?

Abigail: Oh, wait. You should probably dry off first.

Chad: Okay, come on, buddy. I'll get your back.

Zoe: Okay, who wants a hot dog?

Ben: Me, right here.

Zoe: Oh, you're ketchup and onions, right?

Ben: That's me.

Zoe: There you go.

Ben: Thank you.

Zoe: And this one is Theo's. Could you hold that for him, Abigail?

Abigail: Ooh. Ah. Yeah, sure.

Theo: Hurry up, uncle Chad. I'm starving!

Abigail: Yeah, Chad, hurry up. There you go.

Zoe: And here's yours. And there you go, Abigail.

Theresa: Ugh! That little bitch has finally pushed me too far.

Anne: Ooh, which little bitch, and how'd she do it?

Theresa: Tate's "phony as a three dollar bill" nanny and I are in a pitched battle to see who will become mistress of the manse.

Anne: Okay, so you think the nanny is after Brady?

Theresa: No, Anne. I think she got into the nannying game so she could change dirty diapers full-time for the rest of her life for minimum wage.

Anne: [Babbles mockingly]

Theresa: And it matters not to her that Brady is attractive and available and loaded.

Anne: Well, does she have a shot?

Theresa: She's not horrible to look at, if you ask me, but... I guess if she's your type. Anyway, she tries to put me down in front of Brady every chance she gets. Ugh!

Anne: All right, well, how does Brady react?

Theresa: How do you think, Anne?

Anne: Like she's practically perfect in every way?

Theresa: Pretty much. He's all team Hayley and treats me like I'm just the egg donor.

Anne: Yeah, well, you could take miss Mary Poppins' flying umbrella and just shove it where the sun don't shine.

Theresa: Yeah, that would be great, except Brady's already afraid that she's gonna quit because of me, and she's great with Tate, and... [Scoffs] God. What if my plan doesn't work?

Anne: Plan? What plan? Woman: How are you doing in there baby girl?

Theresa: I just have to come up with some way to save Tate from something really horrible, you know? And then maybe Brady would see me in a new way.

Anne: Right. Like a woman who would put her kid in jeopardy just to score points with his father. How's that new, Theresa?

Theresa: Anne, I would never, ever in a million years do anything to put Tate in danger, okay? So get that out of your head.

Anne: Okay.

Theresa: I'm just saying that if I can get Brady to see me as a really great mother, then he'll also see me as someone who's worthy of his love and trust.

Anne: Mm-hmm. Oh, I have an idea. Why don't you try being a really great mother?

Theresa: No, Anne, the whole point is for Brady to see me being that way, right? I mean, he has this whole idea that we're not going to be playing mommy and daddy together.

Anne: Yeah, right. Now he's got this adorable suck-up nanny in the picture.

Theresa: Yep, so, even if I do something and I can convince him that I'm this wonderful mother, then that bitch is going to be there, and she's going to get the credit for it.

Anne: What, she doesn't have a day off?

Theresa: No, and now they've installed a nanny cam.

Anne: What? Where?

Theresa: In Tate's nursery.

Anne: Without telling you?

Theresa: Yes, Anne. The whole situation has gone from bad to worse. [Sighs]

Brady: I'm glad Paul's sticking around in Salem. I got to get to know him better.

John: Yeah, me too.

Brady: Something happen?

John: No, I just dropped off some baseball equipment for Theo at the picnic, and--and Paul was there with will and sonny.

Brady: Is that situation still awkward?

John: Yeah, it might be. But that wasn't the problem.

Brady: What was?

John: Well, Paul was with another guy... some guy that he said was just a friend, you know.

Brady: Uh-huh. Dad, tell me you didn't say something like... "are you sure he's not more than a friend?"

John: No. [Sighs] Yeah, yeah.

Brady: Yeah, yeah. Dad, dad, come on, Paul's a grown man.

John: I-I-I know, but the guy seemed like a good sort. I mean, you know, he was nice. He was athletic. He dressed well.

Brady: So you assumed that he was...

John: [Sighs]

Brady: We got to get your gaydar recalibrated.

John: I just want him to be happy. I just don't want him to go through life alone. That's what I want for all my kids.

Brady: Dad, I don't think you're going to have to worry about Paul. He's going to find the guy that he's meant to be with.

Will: Nothing happened. Everything's fine.

Paul: Hey, um, you want to grab a bite, let these guys enjoy their afternoon? I'm starving.

Derrick: Sure.

Paul: Yeah, um, have fun with the baby.

Sonny: Thank you.

Derrick: Hey, maybe the four of us can do dinner sometime. That'd be awesome.

Paul: Yeah.

Sonny: [Sighs] Now that they're gone, you want to tell me what's really going on?

Abe: Hey, thank you again for making Theo's day.

Abigail: Oh, my gosh. Are you kidding? I love doing it.

Abe: Theo?

Theo: Thank you.

Ben: Oh, hey, anytime, buddy. Anytime.

Abigail: Okay. We should get going.

Ben: All right. All right, guys, see you later.

Abigail: Bye.

Chad: Bye, Abigail.

Zoe: Hey, Theo. You want to help me clean up the rest of this stuff?

Abe: Hey, uh, seeing you... it really makes Theo's day.

Chad: Well, it really makes my day too.

Abe: And your friend-- she seems like a very nice lady.

Chad: Well, she is.

Zoe: Oh, that's a great watch.

Theo: It's Ben's! I didn't give it back!

Chad: Whoa, whoa, hey, hey. It's okay. It's okay. I'll give it back to him, all right?

Abe: Hey, you know, it's game time, buddy.

Theo: Oh.

Chad: Okay. Hey, it's good to see you.

Theo: Bye!

[Both laugh]

Abe: Zoe, it's nice to meet you.

Zoe: Oh, it was nice to meet both of you.

Abe: Take care.

Chad: See you.

Zoe: [Sighs]

Chad: So, uh, did you have a good time?

Zoe: I did. Theo is a doll.

Chad: Mm-hmm.

Zoe: And, uh, Ben and Abigail seem pretty solid, don't you think?

Chad: Yeah, why wouldn't they be?

Zoe: I'm just saying.

Anne: Okay, but how are you sure that they installed a nanny cam?

Theresa: 'Cause there's a new smoke detector in Tate's room, all right? And I've seen these before, and I mean, to a normal, nonobservant person, it might not be a big deal, but--

Anne: Oh, right. No. Yeah, but to abnormal, observant you...

Theresa: Stop being so flip about this, Anne, okay? It just so happens that this creep ex of mine got busted by that same smoke-detector camera, all right? And the whole thing was horrible. I lost my entire stash and almost got arrested. It was crazy.

Anne: That must have sucked, obviously, but again, how do you know that in the smoke detector in Tate's room, there's a camera?

Theresa: I'm sure, okay? There's 24-hour surveillance there. Nobody bothered to tell me about it. I mean, you know, I know Brady hates me, but I feel like I deserve to know.

Anne: Hey, maybe... maybe he didn't know. Yeah.

Theresa: Victor.

Anne: Mm-hmm.

Theresa: Ugh, that sly old bastard. You know, he would do anything to get something on me.

Anne: Yeah, well, thank god you've been a model mother.

Theresa: I know, but now he has eyes on Tate the whole time, and... oh, my god, that's it.

Sonny: Will...

Brady: Thanks for stopping by, dad. I'm sorry you didn't get to spend more time with the baby.

John: I feel that I'll be back. Brady, you know, I know I said I was staying out of your life, not gonna interfere, and I'm not gonna. I just--I don't like Theresa living in this house.

Brady: Dad, I don't like it either, all right?

John: No, I understand it's your decision--I get it. I mean, she's Tate's mother, whether we like it or not, but... if you can--if you get the chance, get her out of here as soon as possible, because I think we both know that that girl is going to be nothing but trouble.

Brady: Yeah.

Anne: Hey, hey, hey, what are you stewing about now?

Theresa: I-I'm not stewing. I'm just thinking, Anne.

Anne: Mm-hmm.

Theresa: Why are we so afraid of technology, when it has the power to do so much good?

Anne: What are you talking about?

Theresa: The nanny cam, of course. Okay, listen, this could be the thing I've been waiting for. I mean, this could turn everything around for me.

Anne: Yeah, well, it better be soon, because Brady's trying to get you kicked out of the mansion now, right?

Theresa: Yes, but with your help, I think we could fix Mary Poppins today.

Will: Nothing happened between Paul and me.

Sonny: Will...

Will: Okay, he got a little defensive when I asked him about derrick.

Sonny: Why would you ask him about derrick?

Will: I was just trying to be friendly.

Sonny: What did you ask?

Will: Well, I mean, derrick-- he's such a good-looking guy, and I just thought maybe--

Sonny: You just thought you could figure out if they were sleeping together?

Will: No.

Sonny: They're just friends, Will.

Will: How do you know?

Sonny: Because derrick told me.

Will: Mm. So you were wondering the same thing I was.

[Cell phone ringing]

Sonny: Hey, mom. What's up?

Adrienne: I need to talk to you, honey. It's important.

Sonny: Okay, where are you?

Adrienne: At TBD.

Sonny: I'm on my way.

Will: What's wrong?

Sonny: My mom wants to talk to me about something important. She's at the club, and I should get back, anyway, so...

Will: Okay.

Sonny: Do you need help with Ari, getting her in the car?

Will: No, I got it. Go ahead.

Sonny: Okay. I'll see you later.

Will: Yeah. [Sighs]

Will: It's time to go, little girl. This day did not go quite like daddy had hoped it would.

Abigail: Ugh. God, why did I put so much garlic in that pasta? [Exhales deeply] Maybe it's the stomach flu or something. It couldn't be-- I'm not late, am I? Am I? No. No. No, it's impossible.

Ben: What's impossible?

[Knock at door]

Ben: [Sighs]

Chad: Hey, Ben.
