Brady: Oh, hi, Maggie.
Maggie: It looks like we're on the same schedule today.
Maggie: So did you find a nanny for Tate?
Brady: Yes, yes. But fingers crossed, she seems great.
Maggie: Does that mean Theresa's moved out, found a place of her own? Or is she still glued to the couch?
Brady: "Glued" is a bit of an understatement.
Theresa: [Laughs] Oh, now don't you worry about mommy's little ankle, okay? 'Cause she's gonna be just fine. Yes, I am. Actually, I'm more than fine, but that's our little secret, okay? Okay?
Theresa: Oh, my goodness, you have the hiccups. You are just the snuggliest little bunny. Yes, you are. Yes, you are. Yes, you-- [Sniffs] Ooh. [Laughs] Emma. Emma, are you around? Emma! Emma, get down here! I need you to do your job!
Victor: It's time.
Xander: For what?
Victor: For me to collect my pound of flesh, what else? Not that you can fully make up for what you did, but gotta start sometime. Might as well be now.
Xander: I will do whatever you need me to do.
Victor: You may regret that promise. But I don't care. What I do care about is your proving your worth to me once more.
Clyde: Give me a progress report.
Martin: Nothing to report, sir, not yet anyway.
Clyde: I gave you very specific instructions.
Martin: Yes, I know, sir, but you see, Dr. Brady, she's a no-show, and--
Clyde: Now, you listen to me. I told you exactly what I needed you to do and how I want the paternity test to turn out. Do you have a problem with the English language, boy?
Chad: The deal closed ten minutes ago on the silicon valley start-up. Uh-huh. Call Charlie in san Jose. He'll fill you in.
Stefano: [Laughs] You seem to be brimming with confidence today.
Chad: I just bagged a $100 million deal.
Stefano: Still, I wonder.
Stefano: Is that really the source of all this confidence or is it the conversation you had earlier, huh, with the woman that you love?
Abigail: [Exhales sharply]
Ben: Abigail, I love you. You are all I think about. And there is nothing in the world that would mean more to me than if you agreed to put this ring on your finger and marry me.
[Cell phone rings]
Abigail: Aunt Kayla, hi.
Kayla: Hi. Are you coming in this morning?
Abigail: Yes, I am. I just forgot what time it was.
Kayla: No, that's okay. Are you hesitant about the paternity test?
Abigail: No. No, I need to know. I have to know.
Kayla: You sound distracted. Did something happen?
Chad: I wanted to be with you because I love you more than anyone or anything this world. You were loved. You are loved.
Kyle: What's wrong?
Paige: Oh, I thought I heard something or someone.
Kyle: In here?
Paige: Yeah, in here. Do you have a roommate?
Kyle: A roommate?
Paige: A pet, then? I heard something when we walked in.
Kyle: It's--it's my neighbor. She blasts her TV 24/7. I'm sure that's what you heard. I've just learned to tune it out.
Paige: Really sounded like it was from in here, though.
Kyle: Why don't-- why don't you tell me what you wanted to talk about?
Paige: Yeah, can we sit?
Paige: This could take a while so...
Kyle: Cool. I've got nowhere else to be but right here with you.
Martin: I am ready to run the paternity tests the minute that Dr. Brady asks me to, sir, but she has to ask, you know? And--and like I said, I haven't seen her today. I mean, I could try to track her down, but won't that look suspicious?
Clyde: You let me worry about that. You sit tight for now. The minute she shows up, you contact me, understand? And you know exactly what you have to do, or do I have to arrange for another city inspector to pay a visit to your wife and kids?
Martin: No, no, you won't. Definitely not. Look, I got the message.
Chad: Father, have you been spying on me?
Stefano: I merely observe and draw conclusions. You know, it's been a long time since I've seen you this optimistic. And I'm confident it would take a lot more than just some business deal to turn your mood so positive, huh?
Stefano: [Laughs] Tell me how it went then.
Chad: Well, obviously not as well as you think it did.
Stefano: But well enough, right? Tell me everything, all right? Or maybe I will just have to start spying on you after all.
Abigail: No, nothing's changed. It's just that today's the day, and now I have to live with the results whether they're good or bad.
Kayla: You know what, baby, I know that you are worried about this, but it's gonna be over soon. And you are a very strong woman, and you will be supported by so many people who love you. Not to mention how much love you have to give your baby. It's gonna be all right.
Abigail: Thank you, Kayla. Thank you for just always being there for me. I'll come in as soon as I can, okay? [Sighs] [Crying]
Theresa: Sorry you guys had to hear me shrieking. It's okay, boo-boo. It's okay, Tate. It's just--it's just I've been in a lot of pain with my ankle and, you know, it really hurts. It's kind of putting me in a bad mood and-- look, I'm sorry, baby. I'm sorry. Mommy didn't mean to get upset. She loves you.
Theresa: Oh, she loves you very much. Oh, my sweetie.
Maggie: Okay. Okay, you know what? I'll find--I'll find Emma for you. Come on, sweetheart. Oh, I know. I know. I know. Oh.
Theresa: Wow, Maggie's obviously deeply concerned about my ankle. It's so sweet.
Brady: Did you really expect her to be sympathetic?
Theresa: She didn't have to be so mean, Brady. I mean, did you see the way she glared at me?
Brady: She wasn't being mean, Theresa.
Theresa: I know that you and Maggie want me out of this house, and I want that, too. I'd be out of here in a minute if I could. Come on, you saw the doctor's note. Like, it's a miracle I can even get around at all. I offered a second opinion, Brady. Will that make you guys feel better? I mean, come on, it's not like I wanted to break my ankle.
Maggie: Emma's changing Tate and then will take him out to the garden.
Theresa: Oh, that's great. [Groans] I wish I could go. [Winces] It's all I can do not to hobble from one room to the next.
Brady: Here, let me help.
Theresa: I got it. I got it. It's--it's fine. There's spit-up on my dress.
Brady: It will come out.
Theresa: Just-- I'll see you guys later.
Brady: Watch the--
Theresa: Okay, I'm fine.
Brady: The timing of all of this is just perfect.
Maggie: Brady, don't you think that we should look at the doctor's report?
Victor: Oh, there you are. I was hoping I'd find you.
Maggie: Is there a problem?
Victor: No, a solution, actually. I'm glad I finally thought of it.
Ben: I saw you from across the way. You looked like you were having a serious conversation.
Clyde: Oh, no, no worries. Just a little business. Happy to see you, though.
Ben: Well, I got your message you wanted to talk, but I want to go first.
Clyde: All right.
Ben: I asked Abigail to marry me.
Clyde: You did?
Clyde: That's great news! Congratulations.
Ben: Not--not so fast. She hasn't said yes yet.
Clyde: Really? Does she not know how lucky she is to have a guy like you? Or is this about that other--
Ben: Don't even say it, dad. Look, she made a mistake with Chad. She knows it. I don't want to keep going back there. She chose me, okay? I may have rushed, showing her the ring like that, but still, I'm not worried.
Clyde: Why would you be? You know, I know she'll say yes.
Clyde: Maybe sooner than you think.
Abigail: [Sighs] I do love you, Ben.
Chad: Set your spies on me, father, it'll be pointless. Because nothing's changed between Abigail and me.
Stefano: Yet. I believe in your powers of persuasion, you know.
Chad: You know what would be great?
Chad: If you could stop pretending like you give a damn about my love life. When what you really want is to get your grubby fingers on that land that Abigail is due to inherit in Ireland.
Stefano: You will benefit as well, my son.
Chad: Yeah. Well, I wouldn't hire a surveyor just yet, because if Abigail chooses to leave Ben and come back to me, there is a discussion I plan on having with her. And you are not gonna like it.
Paige: So I checked out this website for you. It--it tells you how to get vocational training.
Paige: And--oh, and it offers certificates for, you know, all sorts of different professions. And, yeah, in a lot of cases, you don't even need a high school diploma, so-- so what do you think?
Kyle: I can't believe you did all this for me.
Paige: It wasn't a big deal. I mean, you're the one with the work to do, so--
Kyle: I really do believe, like--you know, like I was saying before, that-- that with someone like you in my life, maybe I can change. If you think it's possible, Paige, well, then I do, too.
Paige: This one seems perfect for you, look.
Kyle: No, Paige, you're perfect.
Paige: Kyle, um... [Laughs] I--
Kyle: I'm sorry. I--it's that you-- you're just so beautiful and-- the way you're being with me. I'm very grateful. I just want to show you how much all this means to me.
Victor: Now, this may seem counterintuitive at first, but believe me, it's the best solution for everyone involved. Come on in.
Brady: What the hell is this?
Victor: Now, Xander has suffered some financial reversals. Significant ones as it turns out. So since he's not allowed to leave town, that would make him homeless. And since Salem is having enough problems with transients, I thought I'd take him on.
Victor: Meaning, say hello to our new landscaper.
Brady: Oh, never.
Ben: So is that a--is that a guarantee, dad? What, do you got some secret way of--to make Abigail say yes that I don't know about?
Clyde: Oh, no. I mean, she's a smart girl. She's got good judgment.
Clyde: She made one regrettable mistake but that's in the past, so I know she'll do the right thing.
Clyde: So you asked her last night.
Clyde: And she didn't wake up first thing this morning and say yes?
Ben: I left before she even woke up.
Clyde: So she isn't at the hospital yet.
Ben: I'm not sure, why?
Clyde: Well, uh... she might be home waiting for you. [Laughs] You know.
Clyde: Hey, you got that app on your phone, don't you?
Clyde: Check it out.
Clyde: Hey, there's no harm in that.
Ben: Okay. Okay. She's at the hospital.
Clyde: Is she now?
Kayla: I am gonna need that staffing budget on my desk by noon tomorrow.
[Knock on door]
Kayla: Yeah. All right, I'm gonna have to get back to you on that, all right? Okay. Come in, come in, come in.
Abigail: Okay, I'm ready.
Stefano: What exactly won't I like?
Chad: That I'm gonna tell Abigail everything. I'm going to tell her that you've known all along that she's due to inherit the land in Ireland, that you have designs on it, and that you knew all of this long before she even knew it was coming to her. I'll tell her I found out from you. And then I will apologize for keeping the truth from her for as long as I did. And then, father, I am gonna tell her that it is her land, and that the DiMeras have no right or claim to it and that the choice of what to do with that land is hers. And then, I am going to beg her for forgiveness. Because I am not EJ. If I love someone, I cannot keep secrets from them. I won't, because that is not love. So if she chooses to come back to me, we will have an open and completely honest relationship.
Kayla: Once I get this to the lab, it should only be about 30 or 40 minutes to get the results.
Abigail: Half an hour, then I'll know.
Victor: Brady, just relax. Let's go in the living room and discuss this. Come on. You stay.
Victor: Now, my wish is for this to be brief. Roman and hope are putting together a case for the DA. Once they do, Xander can exchange his overalls for a prison jumpsuit.
Maggie: But until then, you want him here?
Victor: Of course. So I can keep track of his every move. You don't think those financial reversals were an accident? I had my best people make sure he was in debt up to his eyebrows. And then I very generously moved in and assumed said debt. Now, he's indebted to me.
Brady: This whole thing is insane.
Victor: That's the way it's done, Brady.
Maggie: And what about Daniel? Do you think he's gonna be comfortable having his and Nicole's engagement party here with Xander tending to the roses?
Brady: No, he won't. He'll be furious just like I'm furious. Listen, granddad. My son, my son is living here. What the hell are you thinking?
Paige: Uh... [Laughs nervously]
Paige: Kyle. We came here today to try and find something positive for you to do with your life. I thought you wanted to hear my ideas on how to turn your life around.
Kyle: I do. I do. Paige, I really do, I just-- I gotta--I'm sorry.
Paige: Um... there's a ton of good information here. I think you should study it and then we can talk about it some other time.
Kyle: You're--you're not leaving, are you?
Paige: I'm late. Call me?
Kyle: I will. Tonight.
Kyle: All right. Night.
JJ: What's this for? Maybe a spare.
Kyle: What the hell?
Ben: All right, I gotta go. Things to do.
Clyde: All right. As soon as Abigail gives you the thumbs-up, you let me know, all right?
Clyde: Then you can think about where you're gonna take your honeymoon, courtesy of your old man.
Ben: Honeymoon? Don't jinx it, okay?
Clyde: Son, that's the last thing I'm doing.
Woman: You sure it's okay I go for lunch?
Martin: Yeah. Oh, definitely. I've--I've got this covered. You should go meet your friend.
Woman: Okay, thanks, martin.
Martin: God, come on, Dr. Brady, where are you?
Kayla: You okay waiting here?
Abigail: Yeah. Sure, I'm okay.
Kayla: I want to promise you this will be absolutely anonymous. Chad's name won't be on any of the DNA test paperwork. And this sample will be blind tested. Okay? Your privacy will be completely assured. Okay.
Chad: Did--did I say something funny?
Stefano: [Laughs] You really think that husbands and wives have honest relationships? [Laughs] Come on, grow up, huh, Chad. Grow up.
Chad: What, so I can be like you or EJ? No, thank you.
Stefano: You listen to me and you listen hard. You will not tell Abigail anything. Unless, of course, you plan to tell her about ravello as well.
Kayla: Are you sure you can get to this right away?
Martin: You bet. It's my number one priority.
Kayla: Thank you, martin. And call me with the results, all right?
Martin: First things first.
[Cell phone alert rings]
Clyde: Well, it's about time, martin. Now, you get to work and make me a granddaddy.
Woman: Mr. Burns needs to see you.
Woman: About a donation someone is making to the department.
Martin: Are you kidding me? No, no, I'm--I'm in the middle of something.
Woman: Can't wait, sorry. He's leaving in 20 for an off-site meeting.
Martin: Fine. But I need to get right back here and I have to finish my work. [Sighs]
Chad: I love you more than I have ever loved anyone in my entire life.
Ben: When the time is right, we will do it exactly how you'd like it-- a big wedding, the whole family, everything perfect.
Abigail: [Sighs] Oh, enough. Enough, Abby. E that?
Theresa: What's this, the latest in casual wear?
Xander: Nice crutches.
Theresa: [Laughs] Seriously, why are you dressed like a gardener? [Laughs] Oh, no he didn't. You're working here now? For Victor. Huh.
Victor: You're all safer with Xander here, where I can have him watched day and night. Well, until the Salem pd makes him pay for his heinous crimes, I'll take up the slack.
Brady: By making Xander prune the hedges?
Victor: A little humiliation goes a long way, Brady.
Theresa: Brady, what the hell is Xander doing here?!
Brady: Look at me. This is your warning. You stay away from me. You stay away from the inside of this house. And most importantly, you stay away from my son, or I swear to God you will be sorry.
Kyle: How did this crystal get scratched?
[Cell phone rings]
Kyle: Yo, dude. No, I'm alone. No, someone was just here but she left. [Laughs] Yeah, she left thinking what-- what I wanted her to think. Mm-hmm. Yeah, yeah, I can meet you in five. All right. Peace.
Chad: Ravello? Father, what happened there was--
Stefano: A youthful indiscretion. Still and all, Abigail must know about it.
Chad: I am telling her about Ireland.
Stefano: Your call, but you will lose her if you do.
Abigail: I'm sorry. I--aunt Kayla, I should just wait somewhere else. I'm probably driving you crazy.
Kayla: No, no, it is fine. Really. It won't be much longer.
[Door handle jiggles]
Woman: Why is the door locked?
Woman: Oh, can you believe my friend bailed on lunch after all that?
Woman: Huh? You barely started this thing and you ran off? May as well finish it for you.
Victor: Brady, I'll handle this.
Victor: What the hell happened to you?
Theresa: I broke my ankle.
Victor: Huh. I would have thought your kneecaps would be the first to go. All right, come on, get out of the house. The caretaker will show you where your quarters are. That's where you'll stay when you're not mucking the mud, am I clear?
Theresa: Listen, what's going on? Why is Xander here? What about Tate?
Brady: Listen, come on.
Maggie: Are you sure this is going to work, Victor?
Victor: I am quite sure.
JJ: Where's Kyle? I thought you two couldn't stand to be apart.
Paige: Look, JJ.
JJ: No, you look. Do you know something, Paige? You are really an idiot.
Paige: Excuse me?
JJ: Oh, I think you heard me.
Paige: Oh, my God, JJ, you're the idiot. For what you're doing with Kyle, you're the biggest fool on the planet, okay? And don't lie to me. We both know what you were doing at his place before so...
JJ: Yeah, well, this isn't about me, Paige. I can't believe you are letting-- I can't believe that you are with him.
Stefano: Trust me when I tell you, no one understands the importance of acquiring that land in Ireland more than I do. You see? It will be mine, one way or the other. Mine.
Ben: I covered for Frankie three times this week. Next time, I'm getting a raise. I don't care what anybody says. No, I do deserve it, you're right. [Laughs] Ah, it's okay. I do what I can.
Abigail: Was that the lab?
Kayla: No, it was my assistant. They said the results are ready, so I won't be long.
Abigail: I'm not going anywhere. [Exhales sharply]
Man: Xander. Just got a delivery out back.
Xander: I need a shovel to unload a delivery?
Man: Two tons of horse manure.
Xander: Son of a--
Maggie: Victor, I'll explain the situation with Theresa later.
Victor: Yes, I'm sure it's fascinating.
Maggie: But seriously, do you really think this is a good idea?
Victor: Maggie, did you not listen to anything I said before?
Maggie: I listened to every word you said, but it doesn't change the facts, Victor.
Victor: It will be for the best.
Maggie: Until it backfires.
Brady: I've got it covered.
Theresa: How?! Look, Brady, we're talking about Xander here, okay? He's not right in the head!
Brady: I said I got it.
Theresa: Yeah, but what about our son?! I mean, how is it okay to have a total lunatic working in the garden when there's a precious baby living inside?! What is Victor thinking?
Brady: I have no idea what he's thinking.
Theresa: Brady, he's a total psychopath, okay? Look, it's--it's terrifying. [Sniffles] I'm just-- but I trust you. I-I do. I trust you to protect our son.
Paige: How many times, how many ways can I say it to you, JJ? You don't get to have an opinion about who I hang with, okay?
JJ: Okay, fine, all right. Make all the mistakes you want. Just don't come crying to me when it blows up in your face.
Paige: As if I would come crying to you about anything.
JJ: You know what, Paige? People don't change. Just look at me.
Kyle: Maybe I can change.
Paige: That's an odd coincidence. It's almost like JJ was there. No, that's not possible.
Ben: You know what? I do what I can. Well, that's what friends are for, right? [Laughs] Hang on.
Chad: Hello, Ben.
Ben: Chad, what do you want?
Chad: To talk. Got a minute?
Abigail: [Exhales sharply]
Abigail: This isn't the truth.
Chad: Abigail, I swear it is, all right? I love you!
Ben: You are all I think about. Marry me.
Chad: I love you more than anyone or anything in this world.
Ben: We will do it exactly how you'd like it-- everything perfect.
Abigail: [Exhales sharply]
Martin: Oh, you're back early. I thought you were-- wait, where is my--
Woman: There you are. My friend canceled lunch, so I got back early. I was gonna get an egg sandwich from the coffee shop. Do you want one?
Martin: Where's my-- what happened to the--
Woman: Oh, I did it for you.
Martin: You, what? You--you ran the blood test?
Woman: Blind DNA, yeah. You were so great about letting me go on my lunch date, I thought it was the least I could do to help out.
Martin: Where--okay, sorry. Where are the-- can you please, please just-- can you bring me the results right now?
Woman: I would.
Martin: You would?
Woman: Dr. Brady picked them up herself about five minutes ago.
Ben: What do you want to talk to me about, Chad? 'Cause I can't think of anything we could possibly--
Chad: Abigail. Yeah, well, I want to talk to you about Abigail.
