Victor: Are you drinking to Adrienne and Lucas's wedding?
Justin: Actually, there was a bit of a hitch at the ceremony. Thanks to yours truly.
Victor: [Chuckles] You stopped the wedding?
Justin: I stopped the wedding. Made a complete ass of myself.
Victor: [Chuckles] How did Adrienne react?
Justin: I'm sitting here talking to you, aren't I?
Anne: Tough choice, huh?
Lucas: No, I'm actually good at making decisions. Unlike some people I know, I know what I want.
Anne: You know, for someone who looks so good, you don't look so good. You having a bad day?
Lucas: Yeah, yeah. You could say that.
Anne: Come join me. I've been drinking alone since my best friend, Theresa, well, she's actually-- she's my only friend, left Salem without saying good-bye. You?
Lucas: Today was my wedding day. And I was left at the altar.
Anne: You win. Drinks are on me.
Lucas: You have no idea how badly I need one.
Adrienne: A waste of a beautiful dress. And look at me. I should be sharing my first dance with Lucas as his wife. [Scoffs] Getting ready to go off to Maui on our honeymoon. Starting our life together, but instead, it's make way for the runaway bride. God, what is wrong with me? Lucas has done nothing but treat me with love and respect, and the second that Justin... wait just a damn minute. This isn't my fault. I was ready to get married. My chips were all in. I would have been Lucas's wife if it hadn't been for your father.
Adrienne: No, no, no. This is so damn typical. Justin always makes it about him. He thinks he can just barge up the wedding aisle and ruin my wedding. Well, who does that? God. No, this time, no, it is his problem. How could he possibly think that that was a good idea?
Sonny: Because I encouraged him to do it.
JJ: You get to talk to hope?
Rafe: One phone call. 15 lousy minutes. Won't even let her have visitors yet. Working a triple shift just to stay busy.
JJ: I put in for extra hours today myself.
Rafe: You, why? You got a life. In fact, why don't you go home and see Gabi before she calls me and blames me for having you work late.
JJ: She didn't tell you. Gabi and I aren't together anymore.
Chad: Ah. This is exactly what I was trying to avoid.
Gabi: Okay, yeah. Wha--um, why were we trying to avoid this?
Chad: I don't know. I don't remember, okay.
Gabi: Okay, me either.
Abigail: You know, I let Chad believe that I was dead so that he could move on, but...
Jennifer: No, he hasn't moved on, honey. He still loves you.
Abigail: You didn't see him with Gabi.
Jennifer: Listen, if there is something going on, I'm sure it's to forget you.
Abigail: Why does it have to be my best friend or my--my brother's girlfriend?
Jennifer: Because she's probably on the rebound because of what your brother did to her.
Abigail: Which, you know, it's also my fault. I just... I just made such a mess of things.
Jennifer: You can fix this. You can fix all of it. You just need to go to Chad and show him that you're alive.
Abigail: I made a decision.
Jennifer: Yes, you did, when you were sick. You're not sick anymore. Your treatment's working. You're well.
Abigail: Mom, I left so that Chad would have a chance to be happy. What if-- what if Gabi makes him happy?
Jennifer: Mm-mm, no. There is only one thing that is going to make him truly happy. And that is having his wife back.
Jennifer: Go in the kitchen.
André: Oh. Good evening, Jennifer. I hope I'm not interrupting. But I think it's time the world knows the truth.
Anne: I thought you would want something a little festive. Why this mai tai ain't going to drink itself. Now you said you needed something badly.
Lucas: Seven years, one month, and 28 days.
Anne: Oh, so sorry. You're a drunk.
Lucas: Oh, yeah.
Anne: Oh, I had no idea. I got you. [Slurping] Mm.
Lucas: Hey, hey.
Lucas: Thank you.
Anne: You're very we-- [Coughs]
Lucas: Taking the bullet for me.
Lucas: You know, this is a bar. There are a lot of bottles of alcohol here. You can't possibly down them all.
Anne: Oh, you'd be surprised. I've been known to throw 'em back with the best. [Coughs] Not that I can't-- not that I can't have fun sober because I can.
Anne: You know, I'm-- I mean, I'm-- most of the time, I'm sober. There--I--in this-- there are some times, like, in this very moment right now, I'm not so sober, but I have been sober. I'm--I think what I should do is stop talking. And then you could tell me how someone could be so stupid as to leave you at the altar.
Lucas: I don't know. Maybe she's confused or something. Tonight was our honeymoon. We were going to Hawaii.
Lucas: But it doesn't look like that's going to happen now. Maybe I'll just hop a plane and sit on a beach all by myself.
Anne: Well, you don't have to go by yourself. [Chuckles]
Adrienne: You told him to stop the wedding?
Sonny: Yes. No, I mean, sort of. I told him if he still had feelings for you, he needed to let you know. I didn't know he was going to burst in in the middle of your wedding.
Adrienne: You've met your father, right?
Sonny: Yes. And I'm too old to be trying to get my parents back together, so I am sorry.
Sonny: What--what could I do to make this better? Please tell me.
Adrienne: Nothing. Nothing, Sonny. Honestly, the damage is done. It's just Lucas. He doesn't deserve any of this. God, what he must be going through right now. All because I couldn't make up the last five feet of the aisle.
Sonny: Mom, what are you going to do? Are you going to marry Lucas or are you going to get back with dad?
Adrienne: [Exhales sharply] I have no idea. I love them both. Which means that my life once again is going to be a trainwreck of epic proportions. It's just going to go on and on and on because I can't make a decision.
Sonny: I might be able to help you out with that.
Justin: So there she was, standing there in her wedding dress about to marry someone else. And I just couldn't let that happen.
Victor: [Chuckles] Well, you always did have an interesting sense of timing.
Justin: You know what? I know you never liked Adrienne, and I really am not in the mood to hear another lecture about how she's beneath me, so...
Victor: I'm starting to think that I'm not the best judge of character.
Justin: Really? That's new.
Victor: People deserve an opportunity to change. I'd have to be blind now to see how much Adrienne still means to you.
Justin: Hello? You bet. I'll be right there.
Victor: Good news?
Justin: Maybe the best.
Jennifer: This is not a good time.
André: No, it isn't. And I came here to offer you a statement about hope's sentencing in my father's death. And if you don't think that's news enough, then you're more biased than I thought.
Jennifer: Okay, a statement? That's fine. Can we, uh, set up a time that's more appropriate for an interview, please?
André: You know, Jennifer, why do I get the feeling that you're desperate to get me out of your house? Why are you being so rude?
Rafe: You cheated on my sister?
JJ: If you want to take a swing at me, go ahead. I've got it coming.
Rafe: Well, I sure as hell don't blame her for kicking your ass to the curb. I'm not gonna hit you.
JJ: You sure?
Rafe: [Exhales sharply] She's a grown woman. If she ever decides to forgive you, I guess I will too.
Gabi: My, uh--
Gabi: Uh, sorry. Uh. Arianna, uh, my babysitter's sending me photos of Arianna at the park.
Chad: Damn, okay. This feels wrong.
Gabi: Yeah. Yeah, it does 'cause of Abigail.
Chad: Okay. [Exhales sharply] Ah, okay. I mean, I'm not--I'm not-- I'm not past Abby. Yeah, and I don't think you're past JJ.
Gabi: Yeah, absolutely not. No, and--and--and our kids. We--we would be bringing them into a rebound relationship. This is crazy.
Chad: Yeah, and it would be wrong.
Gabi: It would be confusing. It would be weird for them.
Chad: And then if they got-- if they got attached, and it didn't work out.
Gabi: Yeah, I mean, they're pretty attached now, but...
Chad: Any more attached, though, would be-- it'd be worse.
Gabi: So, uh, what are we going to do?
Chad: Well, hmm. Um. [Chuckles] Take a break. Yeah?
Gabi: Yeah. Yeah.
Chad: Take a step back. We'll pause. You quitting...for now, but--but we've been-- we've been spending a lot of time together, yeah? Working really closely together. Probably too much, so I think that maybe we'll just... slow it back down.
André: You know, the demonization of my father reflects poorly on everyone in Salem, especially the Bradys and the Hortons. My father was a victim of violence just as your son was.
Jennifer: Okay, that's great. I have what I need. Your statement will show up shortly online and in tomorrow's print edition. And, um, if you don't mind, it's been a really long and difficult day.
André: Oh, no, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to...intrude. I see you have company.
Jennifer: Yeah, just, uh, me and JJ.
André: Huh. Dinner with your children. How wonderful is that. I do remember those times with my father where we used to sit across the table and share stories. Ahem. Excuse me. Do you think you can get me a glass of water, please?
Jennifer: Yes, sure.
André: Ah, don't worry about the water. Um, I just remembered something. I'll get in touch with you later.
Gabi: So we, uh, just keep our distance.
Chad: Uh, for--for now.
Gabi: So for now, that's, uh, days or weeks?
Chad: You know, I've never-- I-I--
Gabi: Yeah, me neither. Okay.
Chad: Yeah, I didn't, um, expect--
Gabi: To have feelings? Why would you?
Chad: Yeah. You're Abby's friend.
Gabi: You're her husband.
Chad: Yeah, after all these years I don't--
Gabi: Especially considering how badly the first time turned out.
Chad: We're different now.
Gabi: Yeah, we're different. We're different.
Chad: Yeah, and, you know, if it-- if it were to happen... down the road...
Gabi: Yeah, I mean, if we were to...act on our feelings, you'd have to... make sure you're-- everything was right, and you're not sure.
Chad: Neither are you.
Chad: And you haven't talked to JJ. I'm not saying you should get back together. But, uh, avoiding him isn't going to make things any clearer.
Gabi: Is that what you think I should do? I should get back with JJ?
Chad: I gotta work. A lot of ink in this pile...
Gabi: Yeah, I gotta go to the station to see Rafe. Um, I'll see you...whenever.
Chad: Mm-hmm. Uh, gab...
Gabi: All right.
Chad: You have a good night.
Rafe: What the hell's the matter with you? Hmm? You look disappointed that I'm not going to punch you in the face.
JJ: No. I just wasn't expecting you to be so... understanding.
Rafe: Did I say I was okay with it? Did I? I don't think I did 'cause I'm not okay with it. But I lost a sister... just like you did. I know how that... can screw you up, so... you're a good cop. You're a good guy.
JJ: I'm really glad you're sure of that.
Rafe: So how badly did she take it?
JJ: She won't talk to me at all right now. If she lets me try, I will do everything I can to win her back.
Both: What are you doing here? I got a call from-- wait, you got a call?
Lucas: Forget it.
Sonny: Good. You're both here.
Justin: Good? Your definition of good is a little different from mine. What is this?
Adrienne: Sonny, who are you talking to? I hope it's not room service. We already have enough food for-- [Exhales sharply] Three people. Somebody want to fill me in on what the heck is going on here?
Justin: Ask your son.
Adrienne: You did this?
Lucas: Oh, Sonny called me and said you wanted to see me. He didn't say Justin was here.
Justin: Funny how that slipped your mind.
Sonny: Mom, you were worried that this would go on and on and on forever, and you wouldn't be able to make a decision. I will not let that happen. No one leaves this room until a decision is made.
Lucas: What are you doing? Holding us hostage? Come on.
Justin: Our son is right. We--we do need to figure this out.
Adrienne: You mean I need to make a decision.
Justin: Maybe we can help you. I propose that Lucas and I take turns laying out our cases. Explaining why you'd be better off with him or me.
Lucas: Oh, you mean like a trial.
Justin: More or less.
Adrienne: That's a ridiculous idea.
Justin: And I realize that this format puts Lucas at a considerable disadvantage.
Lucas: Mm, I'm not afraid of your fancy lawyering skills, Kiriakis. I have facts on my side. Adrienne and I know what we have.
Justin: Beautiful. Then you have nothing to worry about.
Lucas: No, I don't.
Adrienne: Hey, wait, do I get a say in this?
Justin: Of course you do, sweetheart. Your voice is all that matters.
Lucas: And the sooner you make your choice, the sooner we could get out of here.
Jennifer: Abigail? Abigail? Where are you?
André: Whoa. [Chuckles] What a pleasant surprise. I didn't expect you to be out and about.
Abigail: Well, I-I was just leaving.
André: You don't have to lie to me. I know you've been staying with your mother, having dinner. I'm just curious. When did you think you were going to share the plans with the man that helped fake your death?
Chad: I wish I could talk to her. I mean, she always saw both sides of a dilemma. She had the best advice.
Kate: Well, you don't need advice. You're the real reason that brad bush made such a huge investment in DiMera.
Chad: That was Gabi.
Chad: Yeah, Gabi. I expanded her role. You know what, you should have seen her at that symphony. She was--I mean, she--she-- she charmed the wallet right out of brad bush's pocket. And when Vicky tried to hit on me, she stepped in. She put her in her place without jeopardizing the deal. You know, the--the way she made me feel was... keeping me in line, making me laugh. I never thought I could have that much fun sucking up to an investor. I mean...
Kate: [Chuckles] Wow. That sounds pretty wonderful. So, what's, um, what's this dilemma that you want to talk about?
Chad: Eh, nothing. It's-- it's personal.
Kate: Oh, come on. Seriously? You don't think that I don't know your dilemma is Gabi?
JJ: When she came back into my life, we were both struggling. And I saved her life, but she saved me in all the ways that matter. I-I could tell you how special your sister is, but you know how strong and amazing she is.
Rafe: Yeah, well maybe you should have thought about that when you were in Miami.
JJ: That's fair.
JJ: After all the terrible things that she's faced, she was still able to bring this lightness back into my life. What I hate most about what I did is that I'm the one who hurt her this time. As much as I loved her, I've now just become one more terrible thing to overcome.
Rafe: So what are you going to do about it now?
JJ: Be a better man. Do right by Gabi. Treat her the way she deserves to be treated. And then pray that someday she will-- e new false lash look?
Rafe: You brought that for me. That was so thoughtful of you.
Rafe: You know what? I'm just going to take it and I'm going to enjoy it in the other room, and you know where to find me if you need me.
JJ: How long where you standing there?
Gabi: Long enough.
JJ: You didn't run away when you saw me this time.
Gabi: Not yet.
JJ: I know that you're mad. And I understand 'cause you have every right to be.
Gabi: No, I'm not. I'm not mad, JJ. [Chuckles] I, uh, I could get over being mad. You know, throw a couple of dishes, hit a pillow, go on a long run. I... I'm devastated. JJ, you--you broke my heart, and I can't-- I can't get over that.
Abigail: [Sighs] Look, I-I haven't told my mom that you were involved. Or that grandma Laura was the one that hid me.
André: No, that would be a rather sticky situation for all of us.
Abigail: I was just--I was so sure that I was never going to be back here again, and now--now grandma Laura has made me well and--
André: No. I-I couldn't be more happier that you are well. And now that you are, don't you think it's time for you to reveal yourself to your husband, and show Chad that you're alive?
Abigail: No. I can't do that.
André: And why is that?
Abigail: Because he's moved on with Gabi now.
Kate: So you have developed feelings for Abigail's best friend?
Chad: No, there is nothing going on between me and Gabi.
Kate: [Chuckles] Okay. Please, really? You think that I don't see the symptoms?
Chad: Okay, fine. Let's just pretend. We'll say--look, we'll pretend that there is something going on. That--that you're right.
Kate: Oh, okay. We'll pretend.
Chad: Mm-hmm. In that matter, we've worked it out. We figured it out.
Kate: You know that I think of you as a son. Now a lot of people would say that's a curse because I do tend to get overly involved in my children's lives.
Chad: Yeah, you do.
Kate: It could be said. [Sighs] But the truth is I just want them to be happy. I want you to be happy. I have to say though, my children, and I'll include myself in this, always pick the wrong person. And if you don't believe that, just give Lucas a call.
Adrienne: A coin flip, really?
Lucas: A coin flip is ridiculous.
Justin: I've got a coin right here.
Lucas: Absolutely ridiculous. Rock, paper, scissors.
Adrienne: Oh, really.
Justin: You got it.
Lucas: Paper covers rock every time. I win. Proceed, counselor.
Justin: Happy to. Maybe when I'm done, you won't even need to say anything because she'll already made her decision.
Lucas: Yeah, she already chose me.
Adrienne: You know what? Can we just get on with this, please?
Justin: Mm-hmm, okay. Let me just say that I'm not gonna stand here and bash Lucas on his wedding day.
Lucas: Oh, yeah, you wouldn't want to do that, would you?
Justin: Because it's not about him. It's about us. About what we've shared.
Lucas: Oh, this is going to be good, here we go.
Justin: Adrienne, I know you better than anyone in the world. Maybe even better than you know yourself. I know that when you eat chocolate chip ice cream, you always dig for those chips first. And how you refuse to use a fork in a Chinese restaurant, even though your chopstick skills are disastrous at best.
Lucas: Hey, hey, hey, no touching, no touching.
Justin: All I was going to say was I also know how you like having your shoulders rubbed, even though you're kinda ticklish. Sometimes your elbows tend to swing, and it can be challenging. And I know how the sunlight looks on your hair first thing in the morning. And in the darkness, your eyes, how they twinkle. And you know what else I know? That my life did not begin till I met you. And I love you more today than the day we met. And I also know you're scared. And you have a right to be. You're afraid that I'm going to hurt you again, but I promise that I will love you and be faithful to you every day for the rest of your life. This choice is about your heart. And I know your heart is telling you that you belong with me. That you've always belonged with me.
Lucas: You know, there are a lot of people I know that would be intimidated to follow a speech like that. Justin does talk a good game. But I don't need a law degree to tell you how I feel and why we should be together. Now after Justin barged in and broke up our wedding, I went to the pub, and I stared at a drink for a long time. When I was at the bar and I was thinking, I was thinking about you and Justin and your relationship and your history together. It's not much different than being an alcoholic.
Adrienne: Overruled. Let him speak.
Lucas: I know because I was addicted to Sami for a long time. And in the beginning, it seems great. It's exciting, it's fun, it's even intoxicating. But then you realize that he's just gonna hurt you again. And you think maybe he won't. You know, maybe this time will be different, but it never is. I know that you and Justin have history. There's nothing I can do about that, but we don't look back. We never will. Justin may be your past, but, Adrienne, I'm your future.
JJ: I hate that I've caused you this much pain. If we hadn't just lost my sister, and if I was thinking clearly--
Gabi: JJ, I don't-- I don't want any excuses.
JJ: You're right. I can't change what I did. All I can do is tell you that I'm sorry. And ask for your forgiveness. All I'm asking for is another chance.
Gabi: I know.
JJ: Please, Gabi. Give us another chance.
Chad: Damn, she just left him at the altar?
Kate: Well, I know. You would think that he would've learned something after a decade or so with Sami, but like I said, my kids, bless them, the pick the wrong person over and over again.
Chad: Wait, so does that mean you think Gabi's wrong for me?
Kate: Do you really want to know what I think?
Chad: Yea--uh, yes. Yeah, call me crazy, I do.
Kate: Maybe she's wrong for you. How would I know? But what I do know is that when you were telling me about how she helped close the deal, you smiled in a way that I haven't seen you smile since Abigail disappeared. Gabi has sparked something in you. Can't deny that.
Chad: But Abigail?
Kate: Your wife died, but you didn't. And you're gonna treasure the memories of her forever. And you'll always have Thomas, who will remind you of her. But if you love a ghost, you end up becoming one. Now, if Gabi's the one who is going to bring you back to the living, then I'm on board for that.
Chad: Why does it still feel like I'm betraying Abby?
Kate: Because you loved her. But she's gone, Chad. And she's not coming back.
André: I'm aware of the flirtation between Chad and Gabi.
Abigail: Then why didn't you tell me?
André: Because it doesn't mean anything. What they-- what those two have cannot be compared to what you and Chad have shared.
Abigail: Are you sure about that?
André: [Scoffs] You're the love of his life, the mother of his baby. If you were to present yourself to him now, he would dismiss her just like that. Isn't it time for you to reclaim your life? Go to your husband.
Abigail: I want that. I want that more than anything.
André: Then what are you waiting for? Go to him.
Abigail: You're right. You're so right, yeah. I--it's time. It's time for me to go to Chad.
Adrienne: [Gasps] [Breathing heavily] I ca--I ca--I can't choose. I don't know how, Sonny. I love them both.
Sonny: Look, this isn't the way it works. They need answers. You need an answer, mom.
Adrienne: No, what I need is fresh air.
Sonny: No, what I--no. You are not getting past me without a decision. So get your butt back in there and you get comfortable. 'Cause it looks like you three are going to be spending the night together.
Gabi: I, uh, I hear what you're saying. I even--I even believe you mean it. I just want to trust that-- that you're never, ever going to make me feel like this again.
JJ: I swear I won't. It's practically a miracle that we're together in the first place. When we first met, we were so lost. But you brought me back. We brought each other back. It may not be like it was, but it can be great again. I know it. I love you.
Chad: Hey, hey, hey, hey. You know what, little man? I'm going to give you some advice. Stay the same age. Don't get older. Things just get complicated and weird.
André: Now we'll go back to the mansion and-- no, it's fate, it's fate. Now this is the time. Go to him. Go to my brother now. Give him purpose to live.
