[Knock on door]
Eric: Hey, mom.
Marlena: Hey, yourself. What's going on?
Eric: I'm starting over.
Nicole: Eric, what happened is we survived, okay? We're alive.
Eric: Nicole, I'm not talking about surviving. You know what I'm talking about.
Nicole: I just need to know for sure. Can I count on you to keep this to yourself, or are you gonna tell Daniel what happened between us?
Serena: What did happen?
Nicole: Honey, I'm home! I've always wanted to say that. Ah! Anyone? Okay, next time. Oh, but I do love saying that word--"home." [Sighs] Hmm. Oh, he must be delayed at the hospital. And every place--
Daniel: Touch that drawer.
Will: Sonny, it's your parents' decision. I know it's hard, but you have to try to let it go.
Sonny: It's only been a few hours. I'm just trying to process it, okay?
Will: Of course. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to seem insensitive.
Sonny: No, I'm just sad for them, that's all. I was obviously deluded to think they were good for each other. And even though they were going through tough times. I thought they still loved each other.
Will: You weren't deluded. And I'm sure they still do love each other. Sonny, just because the marriage didn't work, it doesn't mean there isn't a whole lot of love and respect there. Divorce... it's just how some marriages end.
Will: It could happen to us.
Clyde: So dr. Brady's got you on vitabsolute. Huh. What the hell is vitabsolute? Prenatal vitamin. Damn it, that girl is pregnant. What the hell is she trying to pull?
Clyde: Oh, hey.
Ben: What's wrong?
Hope: What do you know about Ben?
Rafe: Just that he used to despise his dad, although it seems they've worked things out. Well, you know he changed his last name back to Weston, right?
Hope: Yeah, I know.
Hope: So Clyde's actively in his life.
Rafe: Well, he's paying his way, so, yeah, definitely. And it seems like they've been hanging out a lot more. Why are you suddenly asking me about Ben?
Hope: Well, just, you know, just because.
Hope: Yes, because.
Aiden: Hey, there's my lady.
Hope: Hey, handsome.
Aiden: Hey, Rafe. How's it going?
Rafe: Oh, great.
Rafe: Good to see you.
Aiden: Did you get in touch with Abigail? 'Cause I know how important that was to you.
Chad: Look it, your dad put your initials on the inside.
Chad: A-g-H. Arianna grace Horton. Do you know where you got that middle name?
Chad: You got it from my little girl.
Chad: I lost her.
Chad: I mean, I never really knew she was mine. She was a sweetheart.
Chad: Just like you. You know she'd be in first grade right now?
Chad: And no matter what people say, I would have been a great dad. I just never really had the chance. Yeah. Abigail?
Marlena: Look, I-I know you're having some pain right now, but these are things--
Eric: Mom, I'll survive.
Marlena: I know you'll survive. And the thing is-- the thing is that memories of Serena will fade, and there will be somebody else for you.
Eric: No. That's not happening.
Daniel: You like?
Nicole: I do. I didn't think you were home.
Daniel: I was just getting ready for our lunch date.
Nicole: Yeah. You clean up real nice. You're not--you're not mad that I opened the drawer, are you? Because you threw a fit last night when I--
Daniel: No, I knew you would zero in on that drawer the second you got in here.
Nicole: No, you didn't.
Daniel: Yes, I--
Nicole: Okay, well, fine. I'm glad I did. [Laughs] It's a wonderful surprise. You know what? I just love surprises.
Chad: [Mumbles softly]
Abigail: I, uh... hi, Ari. Gosh, look at you. Those are some cute sunglasses you have on. I thought that Ben would be here still, but--
Chad: Sorry. Everybody had to bail after the game. Lucas was gonna stay with her, but then he had to handle an overseas call, which made me babysitter número uno. Will will be here any minute.
Abigail: So you-- you played basketball with Ben?
Chad: Mm-hmm. I'm still in one piece. Is everything okay?
Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. Why?
Chad: It's just when I-I dropped off Ben's watch, you weren't feeling well, and then I stopped by Kayla's office--
Abigail: Chad, I'm fine, all right? You just back off. It's none of your business, okay?
Clyde: Well, nothing's wrong with me, son, but you look like somebody just yanked your chain.
Ben: No, no, I'm good. Just got done playing basketball with a bunch of the guys, including Chad DiMera.
Clyde: Well, I hope you knocked him on his ass a few times.
Ben: Actually, I did. [Chuckles]
Clyde: Was Abigail there to see that?
Chad: Wow. When I asked Kayla about you, she said the same thing in the same way.
Abigail: Okay, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to snap.
Chad: It's no problem. Look, for the record, I get that it's none of my business. I'm just hoping you're okay.
Abigail: Yeah, I'm fine.
Chad: Good. Well, now that that's settled, I bet you can't wait to hold your goddaughter.
Abigail: Yes. Yeah. Come here, cutie. [Chuckles]
Chad: And there she is-- woman with child. You know, like all the-- all the renaissance paintings? Never mind.
Abigail: No. I get it.
Chad: What are you thinking about?
Abigail: Um, I-- I--well, I-- to be honest, I couldn't help but overhear what you were saying to Ari about grace, and that was really sweet.
Chad: Yeah, I think about grace a lot... and especially lately. It's--it's crazy to think that I had a daughter once and I never even knew... you know, until it was too late. Abigail, something is bothering you. Hey, just tell me what it is.
Chad: Talk to me.
Sonny: Where'd that come from?
Will: I'm just saying. You and I--we've been working so hard to try to get things back to where they were. And I'm glad we're doing that. But, sonny, we have to be realistic, right?
Sonny: That our marriage could end in divorce?
Will: You know that I don't want that. And I don't think it will, but, look, sonny, I had a great session yesterday with my therapist. I think I'm finally able to accept that I did some very unforgiveable things.
Sonny: You've owned it.
Will: Yeah, but owning it doesn't mean it's not still there. Look, sonny, I still have a lot of work to do on myself-- how I finally came to terms with being gay. Look, I know you thought you'd never hear me say this, but Paul was right.
Sonny: [Sighs] No, I never thought I'd hear you say that.
Will: He was. I wish that I had been more respectful of him. When I came out, I had you with me every step of the way. Paul... well, he had nobody. And as if to make things harder, he's famous. So, whatever he does, it's out there for public consumption. I can't imagine how difficult that would be. Still, though, he's--he's being really smart about it.
Will: By taking things slow, taking things slowly with the personal stuff and with the professional stuff.
Sonny: You wish you would have done that?
Sonny: I mean, do you wish you would have taken things slower... maybe not get married?
Hope: Oh, Abigail. Right, yeah, I did. I got in touch with her.
Hope: Nothing important.
Aiden: Really? 'Cause you seemed awfully anxious about it.
Hope: No, no, everything's-- she's--it's fine.
Hope: Aiden, really, it's fine.
Aiden: Hope, I don't understand why you're--
Rafe: I'm so--excuse me. I just--I don't mean to interrupt. It's just--before it slips my mind... you know, I was able to get Ciara this gig. I pulled some strings, and she's gonna umpire little league, just one inning.
Aiden: Oh, okay.
Rafe: But I thought it would be cool if maybe I picked up chase and he could go check it out.
Aiden: That would actually be great, 'cause there's something I need to do, so I... yeah, I'll see you guys there, but I'll be a little late.
Rafe: That's fine.
Aiden: Your daughter is amazing. You must be so proud of her. I know how badly she wanted to be an umpire. Nothing's gonna stop her. No glass ceiling for this little girl.
Hope: No, no, not ever, right?
Aiden: Did I tell you that she taught chase how to short sheet a bed? Did I tell you that?
Hope: What? Are you ki--
Hope: Oh, my gosh.
Aiden: My son is running around like he just learned a secret weapon known to a few because of your daughter.
Hope: Leave it to my daughter, right?
Aiden: Your daughter.
Nicole: Daniel, this is-- this is so huge. And I know how protective you are of parker, and if I weren't so totally sure about what you said, wanting to be together--
Daniel: Wait, wait, wait. You had doubts?
Nicole: Well, some things are too good to be true, you know? And then I start remembering how I've crashed and burned.
Nicole: Now, though, I have no doubts now.
Daniel: Okay. Because I meant every word of it.
Nicole: Well, at least now I know why you didn't want me to go in that drawer. [Chuckles]
Nicole: Not that it would have been a big deal then. I mean, it-- oh, I see. This... this isn't what you were hiding in there, was it?
Nicole: Oh. So what were you hiding in there, hmm?
Nicole: [Chuckles] Hmm.
Daniel: I don't know.
Marlena: Honey, I can see that you're hurting, and maybe it's too soon, maybe it's confusing. All right, I see this is bigger than I thought. Do you want to talk about it?
Nicole: I am moving in here today, and I am starting a new life with Daniel, a life I am hoping will last forever.
Eric: I'm sorry, mom. I can't talk to you about this.
Marlena: All right. Well, maybe mom's not the right person, but it's just so hard to see you hurting like this. There is one thing. Let me just say that you opened up, you gave your heart, you were vulnerable to--to Nicole and to Serena. And they both betrayed you. So--so I imagine you would have some trust issues going on right now.
Eric: Listen, mom, you don't understand. That's not what's happening. This kid makes stains like crazy
Marlena: I just love you so much. And I really want to see you happy.
[Knock on door]
Marlena: I'm going out. I'll get it.
Daniel: We have a lunch date. In fact, it's a reservation. So, if we don't leave right now, we could lose our table.
Nicole: Daniel... why won't you tell me what you were hiding in there, huh?
Daniel: You will find out soon enough.
Nicole: Just tell me now.
Daniel: No. Then it wouldn't be a surprise, now, would it? Oh. Now, you take those long legs and get moving.
Daniel: Let me get that for you.
Nicole: Thank you.
Will: Sonny, the day that we got married was the happiest day of my life. No regrets. I want us to be married forever.
Sonny: Me too. But maybe... we pushed things.
Will: [Sighs] Maybe I jumped into it for some of the wrong reasons. I felt safer. I felt accepted. But, sonny, I loved you then, and I love you now. The thing is I've come to understand that no one can know for sure what's going to happen. Considering my mom, not to mention my dad... your parents.
Sonny: Yeah. Well, some marriages have A... early expiration date.
Will: Yeah. Unfortunately. But a lot of people that we know have gone through tough times and have come out stronger.
Sonny: Well, I guess we're going to have to take it one day at a time... together.
Ben: Chad fell for it every time. Give him a quick head fake, up he'd go, then boom! I'd jump up, drop him flat on his butt.
Clyde: Too bad Abigail couldn't see that.
Ben: Oh, she had to work.
Clyde: But everything's good between you two?
Ben: Yeah. Why wouldn't it be?
Clyde: No reason. I just know how DiMera can get you riled up pretty easy and especially after he had his way with the girl a while back.
Ben: Okay, it's done. That's over.
Ben: I told you, she loves me. She's committed to me...
Clyde: All right.
Ben: Not that piece of scum.
Clyde: I'm sorry I ever opened my mouth. You know what's what better than I do. I mean, if DiMera's history, that's great.
Clyde: You don't have to worry about him ever again.
Ben: You're damn right I won't.
Clyde: That boy has no clue his girlfriend's pregnant.
Abigail: Chad, I'm fine, all right? Seriously, you need to just let this go.
Chad: Okay, good. Then I guess I'm just reading things wrong.
Chad: After what I did, I know how hard it is to even look me in the eyes--
Abigail: Look, we don't need to talk about it, all right? You were very clear with me about how you felt.
Chad: I know. I just--I wish that I--
Abigail: What, Chad? You think that you can just tell me something like that and then take it back? You can't.
Chad: I understand. There's no way you can know the truth.
Abigail: What truth?
Chad: Never mind.
Abigail: Chad, what's going on? What?
Abigail: Tell me, Chad. What truth are you talking about?
Will: Hey, guys, I'm sorry I'm late. Hi, Abigail.
Will: Hey! Hey. How's my big girl? How you doing, sweetheart?
Chad: Yeah, we've been having a great time, haven't we, Ari?
Will: [Chuckles] Well, good. Thank you for watching her.
Chad: Pleasure. I wasn't alone. This little one loves her godmother. And it's nice to watch too.
Will: Well, it's good to know that if I ever need a babysitter, I know who to call, right?
Chad: I got to--I got to go. It's--it's good to see you. Bye.
Will: Thank you. Say--say, "bye-bye, Chad." [Deep voice] Bye-bye, Chad. [Laughs] [Normal voice] You need to come with me.
Will: My place. We have to talk.
Aiden: Yeah. My goodness. All right, well, I have to go meet a client. I'm gonna text you when I'm-- when I'm free later.
Aiden: Rafe, thank you so much for thinking of my son. I'll see you guys at the game later.
Rafe: You bet.
Aiden: Just one more for the road?
Hope: Yeah, okay. Careful driving.
Rafe: Well, my partner was under the gun... reacted on instinct.
Hope: Yeah, it got a little--little awkward there.
Rafe: Yeah, a little. So, uh, why were you so anxious to see Abigail?
Hope: So it's true? You're pregnant?
Chad: Hey. Finish the books?
Sonny: Just now.
Chad: Hey, thanks for dragging me into that game today.
Chad: Think you'll ever do it again, hmm, considering how things always are with Ben and me?
Sonny: What's going on?
Chad: What do you mean?
Sonny: I know you, remember? You didn't come in here to talk about the books or the game. So what's up?
Chad: You know what? Forget about it. I'm not gonna drag you into it.
Sonny: It's Abigail, right?
Marlena: What are you doing here?
Eric: Mom, don't worry. I can deal with Serena.
Marlena: Yes, you can. Excuse me.
Serena: Thank you. It really means a lot that you'd even see me. Sometimes I feel--
Eric: What do you want?
Nicole: This place is amazing. How long has it been open?
Daniel: Well, just a week. The chef's from a five-star hot spot in new Orleans.
Nicole: And the ambiance is also wow.
Daniel: Yes. I wanted us to be somewhere very special, surrounded by all the things... that you like.
Nicole: I am. And I'm also sitting next to someone I love.
Daniel: Oh. Well, we can't forget this. See--see what you find in there.
Nicole: What, you mean like... bread?
Daniel: Ah... [Scoffs] You better take a look.
Nicole: You first.
Daniel: No, no, no, no, you. I insist.
Nicole: Oh, let me guess. There's a surprise in there.
Daniel: Check it out.
Nicole: [Chuckles nervously] (Woman) you want to eat...
Will: Okay, she's asleep. Now, what was going down with you and Chad?
Will: Something was happening when I got there, Abigail. And you two kept stealing glances at each other. Something happened. Did--did you say something to upset him or the other way around?
Abigail: No. No, he--I mean... oh, he said that there was some truth that I didn't know about. But honestly, I mean, it's probably just him playing games. That's it.
Will: Did you tell him that you're pregnant?
Will: Have you given any more thought about what you'll do if it turns out that Chad's the father?
Abigail: Yes, will, of course I have. That's all I think about.
Chad: Look, when I had Ari at the park, Abigail came by. You know, she's really good with her.
Sonny: Uh-huh. You know she's living with Ben now.
Chad: Yeah, sure.
Sonny: So what are we talking about here?
Chad: I don't know. What are you talking about?
Sonny: Why don't you tell me what happened between you two?
Hope: Abigail and I were-- we were discussing something.
Hope: Family stuff. Rafe, I can't get into it.
Rafe: Well, it's pretty obvious you're worried about her. You may be able to fool Aiden, but I know you, hope.
Hope: What does that mean? That you know me and Aiden doesn't?
Clyde: Now, why wouldn't she tell Ben she's pregnant? You don't keep a secret about something like that if it's something that makes you happy.
Ben: I followed her over there, and I heard them talking outside in the garden. She made Chad promise to never tell me they slept together.
Clyde: Oh, it's still a secret... because she doesn't know who the daddy is.
Will: I'm just gonna say this. If you're thinking of ending the pregnancy--
Abigail: What? No. Will, I'm not having an abortion, end of story.
Will: Okay. But if Chad's the father?
Abigail: If Chad's the father, then... then I'll--I'll leave the country.
Abigail: Yeah. I can live in Europe. I've done it before, I can do it again.
Will: How the hell are you gonna explain to people when you just run off to Europe?
Abigail: Is this what you call helping, will?
Will: Abigail, get real. What would you even do in Europe?
Abigail: I don't know. I'll deal with that later, okay? Look, the important thing is if I'm not here, then no one's gonna find out I'm pregnant. You know, keeping it a secret is turning out to be a lot harder than I thought.
Will: Yeah, well, I haven't said a word. Wait. Does someone else know?
Abigail: Yes. Hope. But she's promised me that she's not gonna say anything.
Will: Does she know that there may be some question--
Abigail: No, no, no. She just knows that I'm pregnant.
Will: Okay, well, if you think that she's going to stay quiet if you run off to Europe, think again, because she will tell your mom in a heartbeat.
Abigail: Will, what's-- are you listening to anything that I'm saying? If Chad is the father of my baby, then I can't stay in Salem. I have to get out, and you have to help me. (Music plays) between Abigail and me.
Sonny: Want to try that again?
Chad: This is starting to get old.
Sonny: Dude, when she told me she was moving in with Ben, I said something like, you know, "Chad's probably not gonna like that." Then she went off on you like you were Satan on the loose.
Chad: What'd she say?
Sonny: She wouldn't get specific, but whatever it was, I mean, you totally pissed her off. What the hell did you do? And, Chad, I'm not gonna leave it alone. I see--I see how you look at her. I know you care about her. So why would you say those things?
Chad: Look, whatever it was, she was right, okay? I'm a jerk, and I treated her like dirt, and--and now I'm getting exactly what I deserve.
Will: Let's take a breath. Okay, sure, Chad's a DiMera. But the Horton family is just as strong, and we are a hell of a lot bigger. We can protect you from any possible threat.
Abigail: It's not just about Chad or Stefano or my family.
Will: Ben... he's a part of this too.
Abigail: Ben hates Chad.
Will: And has a real temper.
Abigail: It's not that. He would never... ever forgive me for this. And honestly, will, I wouldn't either. I mean, I think that something's wrong with me. It's like I'm incapable of being loyal to someone, o-of loving someone and being in a committed relationship with them. I don't--I don't know what's wrong with me.
Will: No, Abigail. You made a mistake.
Will: And there could still be a happy ending here. Ben could still be the father.
Abigail: Oh, god, I really hope that's true. I do. If that's true, then everything's perfect.
Abigail: Yeah. If Ben's the father, then everything is fine. If not...
Will: Abigail, I have to ask this, okay? If you run away, is it because of Chad... or because of how you feel?
Clyde: Paternity tests. Paternity tests. "Cannot be taken until after at least eight weeks." And that is coming up pretty damn soon.
Rafe: Well, I didn't mean it like that, okay? All I'm saying is that it was pretty damn obvious. Oh, what? You're gonna look me in the eye, you're gonna tell me that you're not worried about Abigail, whatever it is?
Hope: Okay. Okay, I am.
Rafe: Okay. Okay.
Hope: But I still can't talk about it.
Rafe: All right, fine. That's fine. That's--
Rafe: That's your call, all right?
Hope: Great. Yeah.
Rafe: Yeah. I'm sorry. What I said about Aiden... you two--you're obviously crazy about each other. You can see that.
Hope: Yeah, but you feel that if he knew me the way you do--
Rafe: He'd be even crazier about you.
Serena: I, um... I came here because I know that you're contributing a lot of your stuff to the art fair later today.
Serena: And I wanted you to know that I'm contributing the photograph that you gave me when I first came to Salem. I thought that you'd rather someone else have it.
Eric: That's great. Are we done?
Serena: There's... one more thing that I'm not sure what to do with. I know that you only gave this to me because I was pressing you about the elephant.
Eric: That you and Xander used to smuggle diamonds into the country.
Serena: Anyway... it's beautiful work, and I know it's your favorite piece, and... I don't deserve it. I mean, the wood is-- it's rare. Workmanship is perfect. It's got to be incredibly valuable.
Eric: That's all you care about, isn't it? How much it's worth.
Serena: I see you're packing a lot of things.
Eric: Yes, I am. I'm getting rid of everything that reminds me of Africa and you.
Nicole: Well, it's bread... in a bread basket. Ha. Who'd have thunk it?
Daniel: Yeah. The review said that this place bakes the best bread in the entire city.
Nicole: Mm-hmm. Mm, great aroma. Mmm, delicious. [Chuckles] You know... oh, I have to say... this--this is a really wonderful surprise, okay? Have you--have you seen the wine list anywhere?
Daniel: I can't do this.
Nicole: What, wine? I mean, I'm sure the wine's pretty steep here, but--
Daniel: No, Nicole... I wanted us to be here for a very specific reason. It's about us. I don't want to put this off and torture you through an entire meal. But things can't go on like this. They just can't. So it is time... to cut to the chase. With secret outlast clear gel,
Chad: So she's really inheriting a piece of land in Ireland that's worth a fortune?
Stefano: Yes, she is the sole heir.
Clyde: Ben, last thing in the world you want is to let all that money slip through your fingers... even if your girlfriend is a DiMera whore.
Abigail: [Scoffs] I-I don't know what you mean, will.
Will: Sure you do. If it's Chad's baby, then, yeah, okay, the situation wouldn't be great. But running away, trying to disappear somewhere in Europe?
Abigail: It's--it's doable.
Will: It probably is. But when you're pregnant, Abby, it's not totally about you, is it? And keeping Chad from knowing that he has a child after how he lost grace?
Abigail: It's the only choice, will.
Will: [Scoffs] You can keep telling yourself that as much as you want. No matter how you feel about Chad, not telling him, it'd be a pretty rotten thing.
Abigail: If Chad is the father and I stay... [Scoffs]
Will: Abigail... are you in love with Chad?
Abigail: No. No, how can I be in love with someone who treats me like-- come on, will, that--that's the most-- [Scoffs] I don't--I'm not gonna talk about this, okay? I just--I can't--
Will: Abigail, come on, I was just--
Abigail: No, will, just stop, all right?
Will: Will you please just talk to me about--
Abigail: No, I'm leaving. Okay, good-bye. [Sighs]
Sonny: What are we talking about here? Before you left town, when you lied to her?
Sonny: Then when? Since you came back, something recent? Chad, you obviously still care about her. And if you knew you had a chance, why would you treat her like dirt? Your words.
Chad: Because I'm a DiMera. That's what we do.
Sonny: You're a DiMera like I'm a Kiriakis. There's no way you would treat her badly because of your last name.
Chad: Wrong, sonny. I treated her badly because I could. Maybe I had to. It doesn't make a difference.
Serena: Eric, this hurts that you're getting rid of so many beautiful things because of me.
Eric: If you're done, you can go now.
Serena: Eric... if you realized--
Eric: Stop! Don't even try to blame Nicole. Don't even say another word. Just go. Whatever Nicole said the other day, it goes double for me.
Serena: And what did happen... when Xander had the two of you locked up in that room and you thought you almost died? What really happened between you and Nicole?
Nicole: The chase you want to cut to... I mean... we should have a glass of wine first, you know, and then maybe after, we'll be more relaxed and--and you wouldn't be so intense.
Daniel: Nicole... will you marry me?
