Hope: I can't believe she-- she didn't call me back.
Aiden: Well, whoever she is, I am the lady's biggest fan.
Hope: Oh, yeah?
Aiden: Yeah. 'Cause that means I get to have you to myself for just a little bit longer.
Hope: What did you have in mind, Mr. Jennings?
Aiden: Well, why don't you take a guess?
Justin: [Exhales] Is that what I think it is?
Adrienne: The divorce papers you served me with, yeah. I signed them.
Kate: [Sighs] Where's Justin?
Paul: Beats me. I was beginning to think our meeting was canceled.
Kate: If only. I'm sure he'll be here soon. Until then, I think we should both enjoy some moments of glorious silence.
Marlena: So your whole goal in getting Sonny to go to the picnic was not to have more time with you and Ari.
Will: I knew that Paul was going to be there with this guy named derrick. I wanted Sonny to see them.
Marlena: How did that work out for you?
Will: It didn't.
Will: Turns out Paul and derrick are just friends, and now Sonny knows for sure. So go ahead. Tell me I'm pathetic.
Marlena: If it's pathetic, why are you telling me about it?
Chad: Tchh-tchh-tchh. King's rook takes queen. Checkmate.
Stefano: Very good. I have a question for you, and I want the truth.
Chad: I can see why. You've always been so honest with me.
Stefano: You answer my questions, and you may ask me anything you wish.
Chad: You've made that deal with me once before. I fell for it. Won't happen again.
Stefano: This time, I will tell you the absolute truth.
Chad: Go ahead. Ask your question.
Stefano: Are you in love with Abigail Deveraux?
Abigail: I can leave it here. I mean, Ben's not going to go digging through the trash.
Ben: Abigail. What are you doing?
Adrienne: Well? Say something. Really, Justin? That's more important?
Justin: I have to cancel a meeting. Believe me, there is nothing more important to me than this.
Chad: You didn't tell me it was going to be a personal question.
Stefano: I'm waiting.
Chad: Okay. I'm in love with Abigail. There's your honest answer. My turn.
Stefano: Of course.
Chad: Why do you want us to be together so damn much?
Stefano: Why? Because you are my son, and you love her.
Chad: So much for your word from one DiMera to another. You've been giving me the same song and dance for months now.
Stefano: What I said is part of my answer.
Chad: What's the other part?
Stefano: I want you together because that girl could be the key to maintaining the DiMera dynasty.
Ben: You worried something got tossed by mistake?
Abigail: No, I just--
Ben: See, that's what you get for being the way you are.
Abigail: The way I am?
Abigail: How--how am I? What does that mean?
Ben: Uh, nutty neat. A compulsive tidier. If something even looks messy to you, you want to pitch it. I found the telephone bill in there yesterday. I didn't even pay it yet.
Abigail: You--you went digging through the trash?
Ben: I--at least I found what I was looking for. I'm going to hop in the shower.
Abigail: Oh, my God. He knows.
Will: The reason I'm telling you is because I did this, and I have to own it. And I know that you'll see that I do that.
Marlena: You know, you've done other things with far more serious consequence and never said a word about it. I think this is a very good step for you.
Will: Yeah. I guess it is.
Marlena: Did you talk to Paul at the picnic?
Will: A little bit.
Marlena: You see, I'm just thinking that--that if you got to know Paul as a person, you would stop thinking of him as your enemy.
Will: You're just defending him because he's john's son.
Marlena: Well... partly, that's true. You know, but john is his father. He lives here in town. Paul has a job here in town. He's not going away. So you've got to get used to that idea, whether you like it or not.
Kate: [Sighs] Justin canceled, so I guess it's just you and me.
Paul: Too bad.
Kate: You know, Paul, I can be civil, but I didn't go into business to make friends.
Paul: Then let's get to work.
Kate: This is the schedule of what we need you to do. It's photo shoots, interviews, media events, that type of thing.
Kate: What's the problem?
Paul: Well, nobody mentioned to me that the name of the cologne I'll be promoting is called "vanquish."
Kate: You don't like it?
Paul: Well, it just seems a little over the top.
Kate: We thought it sounded strong and masculine.
Paul: I mean, you can name it "terminator." It'll still be a cologne. Who came up with the name "vanquish"?
Kate: I did.
Chad: There was a lot more of this bottle when I poured you one of these last night. It's kind of early to be hitting the sauce, isn't it?
Stefano: Are you going to make jokes, or are you going to listen?
Chad: Oh, I'm going to listen. If only for the entertainment value. Abigail inherited a little bit of money when her father died, but to say that it could bankroll our whole future, I don't think so.
Stefano: Jack Deveraux has nothing to do with this, all right? The girl has no idea, but she is going to come into an inheritance soon.
Chad: What kind of an inheritance?
Stefano: One that's capable of insuring our family's destiny.
Abigail: He knows. He knows, and he's just not saying that he knows. Unless--am I-- am I jumping to conclusions? Where is that damn box?
Ben: I swear, there is nothing like a hot shower to wake you up in the morning.
Abigail: I, uh--I better get in there. I got to get to work.
Ben: Not yet. When were you going to tell me? Behold the power of protein in new birds eye protein blends.
Aiden: So for our next anniversary...
Aiden: I am thinking about breakfast in bed on the Riviera. Or maybe how about breakfast in bed in the Costa Rican rain forest? Does that sound good? Or we could do breakfast in bed high atop Nob hill. That could--
Hope: You know what? I am sensing a, um...
Hope. Common theme here.
Hope: A bed.
Aiden: You got a problem with that?
Hope: Not one.
[Cell phone rings]
Hope: Your office?
Aiden: I'm so sorry. Well, my secretary knows not to call unless it's an emergency, so--
Hope: You know... it's fine, because I'm going to finish your bacon.
Aiden: Oh, you can finish my bacon, baby.
Hope: I'll see you in the shower.
Aiden: All righty. All right.
Hope: Make it quick.
Aiden: All righty. Hi, this better be important.
Sonny: Do you have a problem with Marlena taking Ari to see Gabi?
Rafe: No. No, not at all. The more Gabi sees of her, the better. I will thank Marlena the next time I see her.
Sonny: She's a good person. She's fair, and she knows how to listen.
Rafe: How are things with you and will? Any better?
Marlena: Did you hear what I said? You can't eradicate Paul. He's got to make a life for himself somewhere, and he's chosen to do it right here.
Will: I get it, okay?
Marlena: Okay. By the way, I heard about that fellow derrick from john too.
Will: What did he say?
Marlena: Well, john thought he was being so subtle. You know, he was, in kind of a fatherly way, trying to find out if Paul and derrick were a couple. Of course, Paul busted him right away on that.
Will: What is Paul's problem? John's trying.
Marlena: What's your problem? I'm just trying to tell a funny story. Look, john is trying to find out how he can get to know his new son better. And his new son is gay.
Will: Still, I feel for john. People don't live up to Paul's standards. He loves to point it out.
Marlena: Did he do that to you?
Will: He said that I couldn't tell that he and derrick were just friends because-- because Sonny and I don't have any gay friends.
Marlena: Is that true?
Kate: We didn't hire you to sell the product, ironically. All we need you to do is hold it up and say its name with enthusiasm.
Paul: I can do it. And I'll think about the percentage of sales that will go to the charities I support.
Kate: That's a really good idea.
Paul: So...vanquish. Is that, uh, is that set in stone?
Kate: No. No, it'd be really fascinating to see if you can come up with a better name that tests well and clears in 24 hours, because that's when it needs to be set in stone.
Paul: Forget I said anything.
Kate: Delighted to. So is the schedule acceptable to you?
Paul: Yeah, the dates are okay. But how come e! News isn't on the list of interviews?
Kate: Because they turned us down.
Paul: I know somebody there. I'll make a call.
Kate: Really? It's not exactly a sports show.
Paul: I used to date one of their reporters.
Kate: Ah. Is that when you were playing it straight? What are you playing now, Paul?
Paul: Well, I'm not here to break up will's marriage.
Kate: Really? That's coming from the man who was fine with living most of his life as a lie.
Justin: So... this is what you want. You're sure.
Adrienne: No. No. I want the marriage I thought I had, Justin.
Justin: I said a lot of really stupid things, and I did a lot of stupid things.
Adrienne: We're both guilty of that.
Justin: But me saying that what you did with Lucas was worse than what I did with Elsa, that wasn't just ridiculous. It was mean.
Adrienne: At least I know where you were coming from.
Justin: You do? Then maybe you could explain it to me, because I really don't understand how I could cause so much pain for someone I love so much.
Abigail: When was I going to tell you?
Abigail: Ben, you--you've totally caught me by surprise.
[Cell phone ringing]
Abigail: I--I have to take this.
Ben: Yeah. Go ahead. I got to finish getting dressed. Meeting my dad before the game.
Hope: Oh, hey, sweetheart. How are you? Did you get my message last night?
Abigail: Yes. Yes, I did. Um, my phone died, and I put it on the charger, but I guess it didn't charge. I'm really sorry.
Hope: You sound a little discombobulated. Is this a bad time?
Abigail: No. No, don't hang up.
Hope: Is Ben there?
Abigail: Yes. He, um, he's just getting dressed. He's going to go out soon.
Hope: By chance, did he mention that I was there yesterday in your apartment?
Hope: Honey, uh, the wastebasket by the kitchen got knocked over.
Abigail: Oh, my God.
Hope: Don't worry, I cleaned it up.
Abigail: So that's how he saw it.
Hope: Abigail, he didn't see anything.
Abigail: Are you sure?
Hope: And from the sound of your voice, I'm guessing that you didn't want him to see anything. Have you talked to Ben yet?
Abigail: No. No, but he said something this morning that made me feel like he might know and I--
Hope: Take a breath. Okay? You don't have to say anything. Not yet. Of course, unless you want to. But I'm pretty sure that you and I are the only ones that know what was in that wastebasket.
Abigail: Just pretty sure?
Hope: You said Ben was going out, right?
Hope: All right, I'll be there in ten.
Abigail: Hurry, please.
Chad: Are you making this up?
Stefano: Why else would I want you with this Abigail Deveraux, huh?
Chad: So she's really inheriting a piece of land in Ireland that's worth a fortune?
Stefano: Yes. She's the sole heir.
Chad: Who left it to her?
Stefano: The woman who took care of her when she was a child. She and her mother were living in Ireland for a time.
Chad: So she's inheriting a fortune from her babysitter?
Stefano: Well, I mean, the woman thought of her as a daughter, for goodness' sake. It's a piece of land that she is inheriting.
Chad: What piece of land in Ireland is worth that much money?
Stefano: [Chuckles] This one. And neither Abigail nor the old woman know what that land sits on. That's what makes it so valuable.
Chad: Okay, so if the old lady's so clueless, why don't you just buy the land from her?
Stefano: My sources tell me that she won't sell if the land is to be developed in any way whatsoever.
Chad: Ah. And that's what you have in mind. So your plan is to use the woman that I love to get around some old lady's dying wish? Nice.
Stefano: There are always ways to get what we want, you understand? And to leave the land pristine.
Chad: What ways?
Stefano: I have people working on that.
Chad: Already. [Laughs] Wow. You really want that money.
Stefano: [Chuckles] You always had money. If you knew what it was like not to have it, you would not be cavalier about securing your future.
Chad: Or maybe I just think the world would be a much better place without a bunch of stinking rich DiMeras running around.
Stefano: If you truly think that, then you have not been paying attention.
Sonny: Will and I are still trying to deal with everything that happened.
Rafe: Right. By everything you mean will and Paul Narita?
Sonny: You were married. You understand what that's like.
Rafe: [Chuckles] Yeah. Yeah, I think I know better than most. I was married to will's mom, as you recall.
Rafe: Yeah. You know, the thing that actually bugged me the most was, EJ never gave up on Sami. And now that Paul is staying here in Salem--
Sonny: No, Paul's not the problem.
Rafe: Is that what will thinks?
Sonny: Will's wrong. He needs to believe that.
Rafe: I guess you're the best person to convince him of that, aren't you? And I hope you do 'cause, uh, that little girl's whole world depends on it.
Will: It's not that Sonny and I don't want to have gay friends. It's just the way it worked out. When I realized that I was gay, I had already made my best friends, and they were straight. And Sonny has gay friends, but most of them don't live in Salem.
Marlena: We have a gay community here.
Will: And we have friends there.
Marlena: Well, yeah. You know, casual friends but not close.
Will: They have a different lifestyle. They like to party, and we have a kid. We stay in.
Marlena: You have a number of members of your family who adore babysitting for your daughter.
Will: I just feel like Ari's my responsibility.
Marlena: Admirable. But don't let that keep you from going out with Sonny and meeting new gay friends.
Will: Because of some comment that Paul made? The guy was in the closet six months ago, and now he's the gay guru?
Marlena: Are you afraid of making new friends?
Will: No. What if Sonny meets someone new?
Marlena: Oh. Why don't you try having a little more faith in what you have to offer? And stop trying to control every part of your relationship with Sonny, 'cause I promise you, that never works.
Paul: So I'm a liar. You've made up your mind, and nothing's going to change that.
Kate: You've lied to the world for years. Nothing's going to change that either.
Paul: Well, I'll tell you one thing, and it's the truth. If you're the one that's giving will advice on how to hold on to his marriage, you're doing a damn poor job of it.
Adrienne: Justin, this is... a really weird time to tell me you still love me.
Justin: Henderson's out.
Justin: Look, I'll just get rid of whoever it is, and I'll be right back.
Justin: And I want you to know that when it's my turn, I'm going to always be there for you. I'm going to always show up. I'm never going to let you down, and I want you to know that. In this sacred place, I just wanted you to know that.
Adrienne: Justin, I showed up here because I trust you. And you're the one who taught me how to trust. You made me see that you can give yourself to someone, totally. Every feeling, every thought, and it's okay. I trust you with my life, Justin, and I trust that you'll never hurt me and that you will always love me as I do you.
Justin: Do you ever...
Adrienne: I'm sorry. I didn't--I didn't know you were back. Um...sorry. Do I what? [Sighs]
Justin: Do you ever wonder how we got here?
Adrienne: All the time. The best I can figure it is that we got off course one small step at a time.
Justin: But we--we got through all those things in the past. So then, maybe... we can...
Chad: What's this?
Stefano: The list of charities. You're on the board of university hospital. You've seen for yourself what a difference that we've made here.
Chad: So you want me to marry Abigail's inheritance, so you can, what, keep doing your good works?
Stefano: Do you want them to stop, huh? And someday, after I am gone, you can run this family. You understand? And you can do it with the woman that you love. The woman who loves you.
Chad: Well, if you think Abigail's in love with me, you'd better think again. 'Cause after the way I treated her, she wants nothing to do with me.
Stefano: And when she finds out that you only treated her that way to protect her from me, how will she feel then?
Ben: You all done with your phone call?
Abigail: Yeah, I am.
Ben: You ready to come clean now?
Abigail: Come clean about what?
Ben: Your mom was here yesterday.
Abigail: Yeah? She was?
Ben: Yeah, with hope Brady. Didn't you see all the housewarming gifts they left?
Abigail: Yeah, yeah.
Ben: While they were here, your mom told me that you called your grandfather and told him about us moving in together.
Abigail: That's--that's what it is, isn't it? You wanted me to tell you about my grandfather.
Ben: So I could tell you how much that means to me. It really does. How come you didn't say anything?
Abigail: Uh, I don't know. Just got-- I got busy, and I forgot.
Ben: Well, I will never forget it. Because you telling someone like him about us, it just tells me how serious you are about us being together.
[Knocking on door]
Abigail: Uh, I'll--
Ben: No, no, I'll get it. I have to go anyway.
Hope: Hey, good morning.
Ben: Good morning.
Hope: Good morning. Hi, sweetheart.
Ben: Good to see you again. I wish I could stay, but I got to go, but you two have a great visit.
Abigail: We will. Say hi to your dad for me.
Ben: I will. I'll call you later.
Ben: Hey, no more secrets, okay?
Abigail: [Laughs] Promise. [Sighs]
Hope: You want to tell me about it?
It was a scary sight...
Justin: I did this.
Adrienne: You started it, but it's not all you. I assume Victor's going to want me out of here as soon as possible.
Justin: Oh, I'll handle Victor. Take as much time as you want.
Justin: Unless you've made plans.
Adrienne: No. No plans. Just gonna... take it as it goes, you know? God, I thought living like that would terrify me, but honestly, I'm fine. Well, not fine.
Justin: Adrienne, I'm sorry. No, no. I'm so sorry. No, I'm so sorry the way I've handled things.
Adrienne: Don't beat yourself up. We both know that there was something missing long before any of this happened. We just wouldn't admit it. Maybe--maybe it took two affairs to make us face reality, you know?
Justin: Thank you for being so decent about this.
Adrienne: There's no point in going at each other when this is--this is-- this is hard enough as it is.
Justin: I hope you know I lo--
Adrienne: I-I know. I still love you too. We raised four boys together. How could I not? Always. But this is the right thing. For both of us. I got to get out of here. [Sobs]
Stefano: [Sighs] Look. I know what is best, Chad, for you and Abigail and for this family.
Chad: What's your definition of "best"?
Stefano: Don't waste time arguing with me now. Abigail is already living with Ben Weston. If that gets too serious--
Chad: What if that's what Abigail wants?
Stefano: She wants you. Do you understand? She only is wasting her time on Weston because you told her that you didn't want her.
Chad: Yeah, and I did a damn good job of it. I made sure it hurt. It's too late for her and me.
Stefano: Not if you truly love her.
Clyde: Oh, hey. You startled me. I was on a call.
Ben: It's all right. Sorry I'm late. Got my tuition bill for next semester. Thanks for doing this.
Clyde: Least I can do. You got time for coffee?
Ben: I'm supposed to be meeting some of the guys for a pickup basketball game.
Clyde: Okay. But it looks like you got something on your mind.
Ben: Abigail was just acting kind of jumpy this morning. I don't know why.
Clyde: You got no idea what's bothering her?
Ben: Not a clue.
Abigail: I was afraid Ben knew, but he doesn't.
Hope: Thank you, sweetheart. And you haven't told him?
Abigail: He said that you were here with my mom yesterday.
Hope: Yeah, we stopped by to surprise you, honey. But Ben was here, and you weren't. Abigail, the wastebasket had fallen over, and, well, Ben was about to clean it up, and that's when I saw the box with the home pregnancy test.
Abigail: [Laughs] I'm such an idiot. I don't know why I threw it away here.
Hope: No, no, no, don't worry, don't worry. I don't know, something told me "grab it" before Ben or your mom saw it.
Abigail: Are you sure that my mom didn't see it?
Hope: Positive. I promise you, she definitely would have said something to me after we left.
Abigail: Thank you. Thank you so much.
Hope: I'm pretty sure I know what's going on here. But I'd really love to hear it from you. What did the test say, honey? Are you pregnant?
Rafe: Ah. Yeah. Whew. Beautiful day, isn't it?
Stefano: You are on my property. Do you, uh, have a death wish? Is that the idea? Because, um, I have the power to grant it.
[Cell phone rings]
Will: Just let it go. Screw that.
Hope: So it's true? You're pregnant?
Hope: Because those tests-- honey, they can give false positives.
Abigail: No, I--listen, I already went to see aunt Kayla. Um...
Hope: Okay. When are you going to tell Ben? Does anyone else know besides Kayla and me?
Abigail: One of my other friends does, but can--please-- please don't tell anyone else.
Hope: Abigail... I won't. You have my word.
Abigail: I just, um, I just need a little bit of time to figure things out is all.
Hope: I get it. Hey. Always know that I'm here for you to talk to, okay? I'm always here. You'll be fine. You're going to be absolutely fine.
Clyde: You have no idea what's bothering Abigail?
Ben: She's a woman. She has moods.
Clyde: You didn't say moody. You said jumpy.
Ben: Maybe she wishes Chad would just leave her alone.
Clyde: What, he's been bothering her?
Ben: He showed up at the apartment yesterday.
Clyde: Why would he do that?
Ben: I let his little nephew wear my watch at the picnic yesterday, and I forgot to get it back from him. So Chad decided he was going to return it.
Clyde: Huh. Isn't that neighborly?
Ben: Mm, I know. He could have easily just dropped it off at the club.
Clyde: So after that, Abigail gets into a mood, and she's still in that mood today.
Ben: All right, dad. Let it go.
Clyde: Well, I'd love to, but it's hard to trust that girl after what she got into with Chad.
Ben: Dad, but I do trust her now. She wants us to be together. She even just called her grandfather and told him about us.
Clyde: Well, that's good.
Ben: It is good. You know what, I'm sorry I even brought this up.
Clyde: What's that?
Ben: It's our super. Our kitchen sink's backed up, and I asked him to come by and fix it, but he says he has no time today. Guy's a jerk. Anyway, I got to get going. I'm going to be late for the game.
Clyde: All right, have fun. We'll talk later. There's more going on than you know, son. A whole lot more. My scalp hurts.
Adrienne: Sonny, please, please be here. I need you. [Exhales] What are you doing here?
Kate: Oh, boy, did you miss a treat. Our new spokesman is just as charming as ever, but just so you know, he does not like the name "vanquish." Justin? Is something wrong?
Will: Hey, Paul.
Paul: You saw me talking to Sonny, right? Now you're here to tell me to stay away. I can't keep doing this, will. Even if Sonny was available--and I know he's not--but if he was, I'm not ready for that kind of commitment. I'm not after your husband. Okay?
Will: Stop right there, Paul.
Rafe: You can keep your piece holstered. I'm no threat to your boss.
Stefano: You are trespassing on my property.
Rafe: Oh, come on, man. Really? You don't know your own property lines?
Stefano: Escort him out of here.
Rafe: No, no, no, no, no. You see this? See this rock right here? This actually marks your property line. You can check that big video monitor with all those security cameras. You'll see I'm right.
Rafe: I'm just out for a morning jog. Getting warmed up for a basketball game.
Stefano: And doing a little spying for Victor while you're at it, eh?
Rafe: No. I'm not on the clock right now. I work nights. I'm doing this on my own.
Stefano: You must have a lot more time on your hands these days, I mean, now that two women have left you and you cannot play policeman.
Rafe: Yeah, I also don't have any of those restraints that I had when I was a cop. I was so happy to hear that you were coming back to town. Honestly, it made my day. You have a good one. You too.
Chad: Hey, you and I need to talk.
Ben: What about?
Chad: What do you think? Abigail.
Hope: We'll find a way to deal with this, okay?
Abigail: Mm-hmm, yeah, I know. I just need a--I just need a little bit of time.
Hope: Just a lot to process.
Abigail: Yeah, it is. It's just--it is, it's a lot to process, and, um, that's exactly what I need to do. You know, I need to process it before I tell Ben and everyone else.
[Knocking on door]
Abigail: That's the--that's the super. We called him to unclog the sink. Um...
Hope: I'm gonna go get some more tea.
Abigail: He is gonna think I am a wreck about that sink. [Chuckles] Mr. Weston.
Clyde: Hey, Abigail. Honey? What's wrong?
