Abigail: Chad, I know you. And I know, in my heart, that your father and André--they have done something to you. That's what they do. They use people. They manipulate them to get what they want. But they've underestimated you, Chad, because they have no idea how strong you really are. I know that you can do this. I know that you can shake them off, and you can come back to me and to your son.

[Crashing and explosions]

Chad: [Echoing] Once upon a time...


Chad: [Echoing] There was a beautiful princess.

[Baby crying]


Abigail: All right, but she has to meet the prince soon.

Chad: Yeah, I was just about to get there.

Abigail: All right, well, get there.

Chad: I'm getting there. As it turns out, there was a whaling captain.

Abigail: Named Chad?

Chad: Named Chad. I'm gonna do whatever it takes for us to live happily ever after. [Sobbing] What the hell have I done? How could I treat you like that?

Abigail: [Relieved sigh]

Chad: How could I treat my son like that?

Abigail: Chad.

Chad: [Sniffles] I'm so sorry.

Hope: Malcolm? Malcolm!

[Mysterious music]


[Dramatic flourish]

Ciara: Hello? Is someone there?

Stefano: Ah...

Hope: To hell with your best wishes.

Stefano: Oh, cara. You never change.


[Dramatic music]

Rafe: Yeah, well, from what I understand, you were the star of the show tonight.

Gabi: Oh, thank you, thank you. I feel like I'm getting my life back, you know? And it's a really good life, so... [Laughs]

Rafe: What, are you anxious to get home to Arianna?

Gabi: No, actually, Lucas volunteered to babysit, so she's in good hands. I'm actually waiting for a phone call from a friend, 'cause his mom was in an accident tonight.

Rafe: Oh, I'm sorry.

Gabi: I just hope she's okay. Hey, you and I--we haven't spoken in a long time. That's not okay.

Rafe: No, it is not okay.

Gabi: [Laughs]

Rafe: It's not cool at all.

[Cell phone beeps]

Rafe: It's Hope. I should call her.

Gabi: Yeah, no, go ahead.

[Line trills]

Hope: Hey.

Rafe: Hey, what's up?

Hope: I need to talk to you. I mean, like, right now. How fast can you get here?

[Machine whirring]

Nicole: I can't believe this is happening. But you know what, Daniel, my sweet... my love? You are going to save the life of one of your best friends, and I know that would mean so very much to you. [Sobbing]

Roman: I hope you can hear me. You know that--that infection, that's working on your heart? Don't let it beat you. You hang in there. We'll take care of the rest. All right? I love you so much. You hang in there. Don't leave me. All right? Don't you leave me.

Theresa: You know, everybody's trying to help you. And you know Victor, he just doesn't stop. And in this case, that's a really good thing. We're gonna come through for you, Brady. One way or another, we're gonna get you a new heart.

John: If my son dies, I don't even want to live, and my heart's got to be a donor match, so let's just do this.

Marlena: You can't say that. You can't do that, John. If it's the only way both our boys will live, damn right I can.

Rafe: I'm sorry, but hope needs me to go over there, so I'm gonna have to split.

Gabi: Wait, so she just tells you to come over at this time of the night, and you're just gonna go?

Rafe: Gabi, she's going through hell right now, all right? I'm just trying to be a good friend.

Gabi: Yeah, no, yeah, that's fine. If you say so.

Rafe: I do.

Gabi: All right.

Rafe: Yeah. Go home to that baby. Get some sleep.

Gabi: All right.

Rafe: All right.

Gabi: Bye.

Rafe: Bye.

Chad: Okay, so do you actually trust this doctor that's checking out Thomas?

Abigail: Yes, I do, absolutely. Dr. Oakes is the best in the hospital. Everybody knows that.

Chad: Okay. Are you sure?

Abigail: Yeah.

Chad: Right, okay.

Abigail: Yeah.

Chad: It's just what happened with me, you know, I don't...

Abigail: You're just-- it didn't make any sense, and the only way I knew how to make sense of it was to tell myself that maybe it was because I chose Ben, and I didn't see what was right in front of me, you know, how... crazy he was, and I--

Chad: No, stop, stop. I hate you thinking that for even one minute, all right? After everything that I've put you through...

Abigail: No, it wasn't you, Chad. It wasn't you at all. It was your father and André.

Chad: I know, but you had every right to give up on me, and you didn't. You didn't. My God, were you fierce when you showed up to my hotel room last night, making me come here to do what was right for our son. You are gonna be an amazing mother.

Abigail: Chad, I love you so much.

Chad: I love you, too. I always have. And our child is gonna grow up to be safe and sound.

Marlena: You can't sacrifice yourself to save Brady.

John: Even if it means both our sons can be saved?

Kayla: John, listen to me. I know that you would do anything to save your child, but what you're saying is insane, and you're just muddying up an already horrible situation. So just take that idea out of your head, all right?

Maggie: Kayla, I can't make this decision. You're asking too much. All I want is for Daniel's heart to save a life. You're a doctor. You know the risk for Brady and Eric. You have to tell me who has the best chance of surviving, and I'll back you up.

Kayla: You want the facts? I will try to give them to you as simply as I can. Brady has suffered severe blunt force trauma to his chest. His heart is damaged beyond repair. We are trying to manage his condition the best we can, and keep him from going into cardiac arrest.

Maggie: Oh, my God.

Kayla: With Eric, we accidentally discovered that he has an infection that has been working on his heart muscle for a long time, and has caused him to go into heart failure.

Fynn: The OR's on standby. Has a decision been made?

Maggie: I can't make this decision. I'm in no shape to make this decision. What would you do if you were me?

Kayla: I think it's pretty clear. Although Eric is in critical condition, there is still time for treatment. Fynn is up on all the current drug therapies. Brady, on the other hand-- there is no other option. He needs a transplant, and it needs to happen now.

Fynn: I have to tell you this. Brady could go into cardiac arrest at any time.

Maggie: Then we know what we have to do.

Kayla: Prep Brady to receive Daniel's heart.

Marlena: What are Eric's chances?

Kayla: There are no guarantees, but we will do everything we can for him.

John: Doc, that was nearly an impossible decision Kayla and Maggie had to make.

Marlena: You know they say that everything happens for a reason? I just don't see the reason here. So what if Brady lives and Eric doesn't? What's that do to us? How do we get through that together?

John: I can't tell you what to do, Doc. I can only say what I would do. And I wouldn't give up hope. I would remember that Eric is young, and he's a fighter. We have to be strong for him. And that is something that we can do together.

Hope: Thanks for getting here so fast.

Rafe: Well, it sounded important.

Hope: Yeah, I've been trying to put together the sequence that led to Bo's kidnapping.

Rafe: Okay.

Hope: Okay, so Bo left Salem to track down the drug for Caroline, right? But then he got waylaid when he took the case for the ISA, distracted by the woman posing at Britta Englund's daughter.

Rafe: Yeah, and we know that the kidnapper paid Claudia to do that, and to tell him that Britta was still alive, and where to find her.

Hope: Exactly, which is how the kidnapper lured Bo, and where they grabbed him. Listen, I may be reaching here, but this is my guess. Someone wanted Bo to lead him to the drug, and that someone is the person Malcolm called before he got shot.

Rafe: And you think you know who he called?

Hope: There's someone I kept eliminating because I thought it was too easy.

Rafe: Stefano?

Hope: We've eliminated everyone else from the ISA case--everyone who knew about Salinas and the drug, and every one of Malcolm's contacts.

Rafe: Sure.

Hope: Rafe, I feel like this fog has been lifted. It has to be Stefano.

Rafe: Okay, but we still need to prove it.

Hope: Oh, no, I've proven it. I have proven this to myself. And this son of a bitch, this bastard--he's going to pay. For good this time. He's going down.

[Respirator whirs]

Maggie: I--I thought you should know they made their decision.

Nicole: Who?

Maggie: Brady.

Nicole: [Sobs]

Maggie: The orderlies are outside waiting to take Daniel down to the OR.

Nicole: [Sobbing] I can't--I can't, Maggie. I can't say good-bye. I can't let him go. Oh, I can't. [Sobbing]

Maggie: Saying good-bye doesn't ever mean that you have to let him go, and I'm certainly not going to do that.

Nicole: [Sobbing] Baby... thank you. Thank you for everything. For loving me, and the memories. You were an unbelievable gift in my life, and I will always, always love you. Always. [Sobbing] No. [Sobbing]

Maggie: I'll see you again someday. Good-bye, sweetheart, my beautiful son. Safe trip home.

Nicole: [Sobbing] Oh, don't--oh! Oh, my God!

Maggie: It's okay.

Rafe: Hope, I want it to be Stefano as much as you do, but there is no direct link between him and Malcolm.

Hope: Who else would Malcolm be calling in Salem?

Rafe: Well, it doesn't have to be a resident. People do visit Salem, you know.

Hope: Who's the visitor?

Rafe: I don't know!

Hope: For God's sake, Rafe! Every rotten thing that has happened to the Bradys was because of Stefano DiMera. I promised Bo I'd get justice for him, and I'm gonna see to it that he gets it.

Rafe: How?

Hope: Not by the book.

Rafe: Hope...

Hope: Stefano burned that book a long time ago. I want a confession out of him.

Rafe: Okay, so what are you gonna do--the Russian roulette thing again? 'Cause that worked so well with Malcolm, didn't it?

Hope: I was doing my job.

Rafe: Okay, well, you're not on the job anymore--

Hope: He killed him! Stefano killed him--he framed me, Rafe.

Rafe: You're in enough trouble already, okay?

Hope: What do I do?

Rafe: Just stop it. Just stop. Back the hell off, and let me find the proof. Please. Okay, just...

It's good that you caught Thomas's condition early. He's gonna need to get his blood monitored regularly, but he's gonna lead a normal life.

Chad: You're sure?

Abigail: Yeah, she wouldn't say it if she wasn't sure. That's great.

Chad: Sorry, I'm new to having a son, so...

I understand. Enjoy him.

Chad: I intend to.

Abigail: Thank you.

Chad: [Laughs]

Abigail: My God...

Chad: He's gonna be fine, and he's gonna live a normal life.

Abigail: I know.

Chad: Well, as much of a normal life as he could, with me as a father. I'm gonna spoil the hell out of that kid.

Abigail: No, you're not.

Chad: Yes, I am.

Both: Oh, my God.

Abigail: Hey. You're back, right? I mean, you're back.

Chad: I'm back. And I'm yours.

Abigail: Oh, I should--I have to go check on my mom. JJ said that she might be released today, so I should--

Chad: Oh, okay.

Abigail: ...Go.

Chad: I'm--I'm gonna stay and hang out with my son. Our--well, our son. I mean, I just--I still can't believe it.

Abigail: Okay. Yeah.

Abigail: Okay.

Chad: I'm gonna go now.

Nicole: [Sobs] [Sobbing] Is this fun for you? Making innocent people suffer because I love them? First, my babies that never drew breath, and then the man I thought I was gonna be with forever. Why? What did I ever do to you? [Cries] Why--why do you hate me so much?

[Monitor beeping]

Fynn: [Sighs] I'll make sure I do this right, like you would.

[Surgical saw buzzes]

Abigail: Hi, mom, I've been looking everywhere for you.

Jennifer: Oh, hi, baby.

Abigail: Oh, my God, Mom, how--are you okay?

Jennifer: I'm fine. I'm gonna be fine.

Abigail: Are you sure?

Jennifer: Yeah. I'm good. I've been released.

Abigail: Oh, my God.

Jennifer: I just wanted to stay here-- see how Brady's doing.

Abigail: What do you mean? Why Brady?

Jennifer: You don't know?

Abigail: Know what, mom? JJ just told me about you. What happened with Brady?

Jennifer: There was a three-car accident, and Eric was driving the first car, and Brady and Daniel were driving the third one, and Eric's in critical condition.

Abigail: Oh, my God, wait.

Jennifer: Brady had to have surgery.

Abigail: What happened to Daniel, mom? What happened? Mom? Mom, what happened to Daniel?

Jennifer: He didn't make it.

Abigail: What? Does JJ know?

Jennifer: No, he doesn't know... because they didn't pronounce him dead until they started surgery on Brady.

Abigail: Why not?

Jennifer: Brady needed a heart transplant as soon as possible.

John: [Sniffles]

Theresa: Shouldn't we know something by now? The nurses' station-- we could ask.

Victor: I don't think we should bother them again.

Theresa: Yeah, but it's been so long.

John: It's over?

Philip: How did it go?

Kayla: The operation went beautifully.

Theresa: Oh, thank God.

Kayla: Brady is in the recovery room now. His new heart is beating normally, he is off the respirator, and he's breathing on his own.

John: Oh, that's great.

Kayla: Yeah, pretty soon they'll move him to the ICU.

John: Oh, thank you, Kayla. And be sure to thank that crack surgical team for us.

Kayla: I will. Now, we just have to keep Brady's body from rejecting the heart.

Maggie: Well, that's really good news. I told Melanie I'd call her when it was over.

Victor: Well, I'll go with you.

Maggie: No, I'm really okay.

John: Can I see him?

Kayla: Not yet. Let's wait till he gets moved to ICU, all right?

John: All right, yeah, I'll call Paul, tell him his brother made it through the surgery.

Kayla: Okay. And roman's waiting to talk to me, so...thank you.

Theresa: Aunt Kayla?

Kayla: What?

Theresa: What are the chances that Brady's body will accept the new heart?

Kayla: If we see any signs of his body rejecting it, we'll adjust his medications.

Theresa: All right.

Kayla: But he's not out of the woods yet. I know how scared you are.

Theresa: Hey--listen, thank you for everything that you've done for him. Okay, I just know it's gonna work. It has to.

Marlena: I'm still here, honey. Your dad is, too. He's just talking to Aunt Kayla right now.

[Heart monitor alarm beeping]

Eric? Nurse? Nurse, my son needs help!

Marlena: What happened?

An arrhythmia... caused by the infection in his heart.

Marlena: And can you fix it? I mean, the arrhythmia?

This beta blocker I just gave him should help.

Marlena: Thank you, thank you.


Marlena: That will make it better. You're okay now. You're okay now.

[Indistinct PA announcements]

Victor: How's Melanie doing?

Maggie: About like I am. She's very happy for Brady. She still loves him. We talked about... how many years that we spent not knowing that Daniel was a part of our lives. But we both agreed that we were very lucky to have had him for as long as we did.

Paul: Is there any more news?

John: Hey, kid. No, not yet.

Kayla: I just saw Brady.

Theresa: And?

Kayla: And he's breathing well. He has no fever. Those are the signs that he's accepting the new heart.

John: So, so far, so good?

Kayla: So far, so good.

Belle: Thank you for the update.

Jennifer: Please tell me. Tell me about Thomas. Tell me about the baby.

Abigail: Okay-- he's doing fine. Dr. Oakes said that he has a minor blood disorder, but he's gonna live a normal life, so that's really good.

Jennifer: Oh, that's great. That's such a relief, baby.

Abigail: It's great. On Chad's side of the family--on his mom's side--there's no history of it for the DiMeras.

Jennifer: What--so you told him that, right?

Abigail: Yeah, I told him, and it was crazy. It's like the second he saw Thomas, it just snapped him out of everything, and he--

Jennifer: What? Really?

Abigail: He held Thomas, and he fell in love with him, and he told me that he never stopped loving me.

Jennifer: That's wonderful, baby.

Abigail: I know it is. It's great, just-- I feel guilty being happy about anything, mom. I'm just so sorry--I don't-- Daniel...

Jennifer: Daniel was a wonderful man, and I really believed he was going to be my friend for the rest of my life.

Chad: So, Thomas, you, me, and your mom, we have some pretty good times ahead of us. How does that sound? It sounds pretty good to me, too. Thomas's mother should be back any minute. When you see her, let her know that I had to take care of something.


Nicole: Thank you for letting me see him.

Roman: You gonna be all right?

Nicole: [Crying]

[Sobbing loudly]

Hope: I'd love to turn the DiMeras over to you, but if I did that, they'd keep going after the people I love.

Rafe: You don't know that, hope.

Hope: We both know that.

Rafe: Listen to yourself. Now, listen, I understand that you have been through so much in a short period of time. It's taken its toll--

Hope: I'm fine.

Rafe: No, you're not.

Hope: I am fine!

Rafe: You are not! Hope, you used to be a great cop, but you've changed. You used to believe in the rule of the law.

Hope: That's not who I am anymore.

Rafe: If you use Stefano's tactics to go after him, you are no better than they are.

Hope: Maybe I'm not.

Harold: You wanted something, sir?

Chad: Yes. Tell my father and André that I'm here and I want to see them.

Harold: I'm afraid they've retired for the night, sir.

Chad: Too bad. Go wake them up.

Harold: Very good, sir.

Nicole: [Sobbing]

Fynn: If there's anything I can do...

Nicole: No. No, there's nothing anyone can do. Not anymore. [Sobbing] Oh, God...

Philip: How's he doing?

Belle: Same.

Philip: I'm glad about Brady.

Belle: Yeah, me too. You think it's too much to ask for two miracles in one night?

Marlena: I try not to ask for things because I want them or because I think they'll make me happy. I think I should get those things for myself. I can't make my son well. I'm not even sure the doctors can do it. You'll have to help him. Please. Please bring my son back to me. Please make my son well.

Victor: Will you let me take you home?

Maggie: Don't you want to stay here to see Brady?

Victor: I'll take you home, sit with you until you fall asleep, and then I'll come back.

Maggie: Oh, Victor. I don't think I'm ever going to sleep again.

Theresa: Well, you did it. You hung on. You know what? Someday, I'm gonna tell our little boy about the night his daddy came back to us. [Sniffles]
